Review: Super Love by Stephanie Beck

Super Love is the first book in a new series from Stephanie Beck called Justice Fraternity Chronicles.

Dinah (Dinah-Go) was a retired super heroine! However her old team didn't let her stay that way for long. And not just anyone returned for her. Myles (Man of Wonder) - old lover - returns for her with a very heated reunion.

Dinah-Go steps back into her roll fairly quickly, which I'd imagine is the way it works if you have the talents that these characters have. The bad guys -- or should I say gals -- are known right off the bat. Which I liked because it helped build up the anticipation of the black moment of the story.

This story flows well. Its packed with action - super hero action - and heat. Man, Ms. Beck wrote some vividly steamy scenes. This isn't my first Stephanie Beck book and I know it won't be my last. Her intimate scenes are very visual in her description, which I like.

If you're looking for something a little different, I recommend this one. You will devour it in no time and walk away feeling like you're ready to take on the world. I can't wait to read the next one in the series.

These are stories of lust. Not a timid, discrete lust, but one that reaches to the heavens and feeds the divine within us.

Step in, leave your preconceptions at the door, and enjoy the ride!

Interview with Karolyn James (K James)

Today I have author Karolyn James stopping by to tell us about her new release. It looks like a hot one!

1. What genre do you write? – Romance and erotic romance… with the hopes of adding romantic suspense in the near future. ;)

2. Please tell us about your latest release All Access and how you came up with the idea? - All Access is the first book in the Brothers of Rock series, following rock band Chasing Cross. Each book focuses on one band member. The books can be read as stand alones but the series is best to read in order! The idea came from me wanting to write about a band after the music is done. After the records are recorded. After the concerts are played. Basically, what happens in their normal lives?

3. Is it part of a series? – Yes. All Access is book one in Brothers of Rock.

4. A must have snack while you write. – Oh… I’m usually stuck between M&M’s and Wheat Thins! Talk about a contrast - lol

Hearing Loss Awareness Month!

The month of May is Hearing Loss Awareness Month. I'd like everyone to take a moment...not just now, not just this week or even this month, but try to remember throughout the year, that millions of people throughout the United States have hearing loss.

Some tips for the hearing world:

-The next time you speak to someone in a public place and they don't acknowledge you, don't just automatically assume they're being rude. Stop a minute and ask yourself, "Did they hear me?" Maybe they have hearing loss. Hearing loss isn't a visible illness. You don't SEE it. Hearing aids can be well hidden.

Marked by Jennifer James *Spotlight, Review, and Giveaway*

Today I have Jennifer James popping by to tell us about her new paranormal release Marked (Howl #1). I picked this one up last week and read it. This book was hot! The author told a great story about two destined mates finding their way back to one another and then she heated the pages up. If you take a look at the cover, you'll notice Kayla is bound. Yes folks, that means we get some hot Dominance and submissive action.

Jack is a hero who will make you swoon. He was perfect in every way and very understanding toward Kayla. How she stayed away from him for 5 years, beats me. I'm ready for more Jack already.

If you like paranormal and you like your books hot, this is this story for you.

Now, I hand the blog over to Jennifer:

Review - Under Her Spell by Eliza Daly #giveaway

This was a very entertaining read. I loved it. The cast of characters in this book will keep you entertained from page 1 to the end. And of course the hero Reed was totally swoonworthy. I loved him and the way he made Monica feel. The author does a splendid job on portraying Monica's emotions whenever Reed is around. There were moments in this book that even my heart did a flip. Especially the scene with the mime. Wow.

This authors writing is easy to read. The chemistry and romance in this story is an A+. I will be looking for more from this author and I recommend this book 100%. You will smile, laugh, and fall in love during this book as Monica and Reed show one another just what love is!

But, the same evil emerges, can he change this time? Fighting for the life of his new family, will Damien be able to save Jany in time?

As night eventually draws near, it’s time to prep. There are bulletproof vests piled in the rear of the ship. I put one on, and pull the t-shirt over it. Sticking guns wherever I can, I have one in a holster on my leg, one in the rear waist of my pants, one tucked into my boot, and one I plan to hold in my hand. If I go down, I plan to take as many of them with me as I can. After sunset, I make my way from the ship, taking a final look back, knowing I’ll never see it again. A deep sense of foreboding settles over me like a fog. I’m going to die today. I know this, and will have to accept it. But even knowing that, I still press forward. It has to be done, this needs to end. Scaling the rocky beach walls, I make my way slowly back to the lake house I embarked from just the day before. A few miles later, and I’m standing, in pitch black darkness, staring at a dark house. As thunder crashes around me and lightning fills the sky, I know it’s the end. This will be my doom, destiny or glory. It’s all up to me and fate now. Let’s see who’s stronger.

Review - All Over The Place by Serena Clarke

Are you looking for a romance that isn't like every other romance out there? This is it. This book is filled with fun, witty humor. I found myself laughing throughout a lot of it. The authors writing was easy to follow and kept me engaged as I read this until the end.

Livi, the main character, was a hoot. She is one of those women you'd love to have as a friend just so she could share some of her stories over a glass of wine.

This isn't your traditional type of romance. So if you're looking for something just a little different, but are still a romantic at heart, I recommend this book. And be prepared to be entertained!
