Genre- Erotica
Publication Date- March 15th, 2014
Published By- SideStreet Cookie Publishing

**Not for readers under the age of 18+. Contains language, explicit sex, and adult situations.**

Kieran Donovan has always been a doormat to the women in his life. Begging his wife not to leave after finding her in bed with not one—but five men—only provides further proof of that.

In need of an escape from an empty house and a broken heart, Kieran heads to Midtown to see his estranged brother, Liam. There he meets Shayne Wickham, Liam’s best friend. Shayne’s dark and sexy with a wild streak a mile long and a sexual appetite for things Kieran’s never even dreamed of doing. But after an intense, and all too brief encounter, he’s more than willing to learn. Despite the usual safeguards Shayne keeps around herself and her own wounded heart, she finds herself more than willing to show him the ropes…and the floggers…and the paddles.

Kieran’s never seen himself as dominant in any aspect of his life. But when Shayne submits herself to him, it ignites an inner strength and hunger he never knew he had—and feelings Shayne didn’t know she could have. So used to keeping others at an arm’s length, the ease with which she finds herself trusting Kieran is both exciting and unsettling. Could Kieran be someone she could finally trust her heart to—or will he leave her scarred like everyone else?

Just another mark on her skin.

REVIEW: Gifted by Liz Long

BOOK PROVIDED BY MARK MY WORDS FOR HONEST REVIEW



JAIME'S REVIEW

In this book we meet Lucy who has lost her parents but her mother was the most recent. With nothing else to do and nowhere else to go, she calls upon Mr. Sheffield Donovan. 

Mr. Sheffield is the circus owner of the Donovan Circus. This isn't your normal type of circus either. Lucy knows this, as she was part of it many years ago before her dad all of the sudden said no more and took her and her mother to live a 'normal' life. 

Sheffield knows of Lucy's talents, as she is a product of her father. 
Lucy is a Firestarter. Seemingly, much more powerful than her father was. She isn't the only one, but she is the one with the most power. 
This is a circus filled with Gifted people. 

One night, a local bar goer couldn't keep his hands to himself. He earned himself a little zap, earning a group of gifted in trouble. Especially when that bar goer turns up dead. 

People are starting to die, if it's coincidental to Lucy's arrival...a lot of members of the circus seem to think so. 

Can she clear her name before someone kills her?


Gifted had it's twists and turns. Even had me second guessing characters. I believe I was up until 2 in the morning wanting to finish it. The bags were worth it to me. :)
It was a good book! I would definitely wouldn't mind reading it again!

The year 2102--the world as it was no longer exists. Ravaged by nuclear war and polluted almost to the point of no return, Earth was dying.

Quietly overthrown, the human race is now enslaved. The majority doesn’t even realize they have no free will. Branded, herded and kept only to further the agendas of the Fae Courts, humanity could be facing extinction.


But a resistance is coming…  

Fianna Dolan has spent her entire young life preparing herself for an uprising against the Fae. One scorching summer night Fi's parents leave and never return. Thrust into a position of power she never expected, Fi struggles with her new position and the responsibility it entails. When a secretive fae man known only as Flint breaches the city’s defenses claiming he can help, Fi begins to doubt everything she's ever considered truth. As betrayals and deception come to light, will Fi want the answers she’s been seeking, or will trusting Flint lead to her destruction?

By- Stina Rubio

***GRAPHIC CONTENT AND TRIGGER WARNING FOR SEXUAL ABUSE!***
This book contains sensitive subject matter that may trigger unwanted memories. This book contains graphic content and should be read by adults 17 years of age and older.
 
There was a time in my life when I was someone else.
She died.
As an investigator, I showed no emotion as I found dirt on men for the women that just so happened to fall victim to loving them. I enjoyed the feeling I got when I screwed men over; their discomfort brought me joy. Trust me, I wasn’t always deranged. I used to be young and naive to the evils of the world, but someone snatched that away from me, turning me into a heartless monster.
When I’m assigned another case, my new mark awakes things that I’ve spent my whole life trying to bury.

Emotions.

Fears.

My past.

A man originally intended to be my mark triggers things inside of me that I thought I lost long ago. For him, I was going to face my past, but there was only one thing standing in my way. Will he be the key to my salvation or am I doomed to let my past continue holding me hostage?

STREET TEAM SIGN UPS for Tyffani Clark Kemp

Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quiet, but she always has a story to tell.

COVER REVEAL: Turn of the Moon by L.P. Dover


Title: Turn of the Moon
Series: Royal Shifters
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: PNR/Shifter
Release Date: August 24, 2015

One girl. Two wolves. Promised to one. Destined for the other.
To escape the cruel, overbearing, Kade, the Yukon Pack alpha she’s been promised to, Bailey Whitehill flees her home in search of a new life, one of freedom where she can make her own choices. However, Kade will stop at nothing to make her his and begins the hunt.
As Bailey starts her new life, everything she’s known to be true, is not. Time is of the essence and choices have to be made or consequences suffered. Not only does Bailey fear Kade, but another danger lurks deep in the recesses of the forest. Unbeknownst to her, that danger is what she’s been searching for all along. At the turn of the moon, her fate hangs in the balance . . . and it’s up to her to make the right choice.
There was a time when I lived for the pack, when I would do anything to save my people. The white wolves were slowly reducing in number, and now everyone was desperate, struggling to make ends meet before we were wiped into extinction. I was twenty-four years old, and a daughter of the Northern pack alpha. It was my duty to continue my lineage. The only problem was, there were no other unmated alphas around other than my best friend, Sebastian, and the supreme douche, Kade Whitemore.
There was no way in hell I was going to alliance myself with that rat bastard. He was alpha of the Yukon pack, violent, and an overbearing ass who’d rather see me on my back with my legs spread open than being his equal. I’d rather die than be forced to be his mate for all eternity. Why couldn’t I mate with Sebastian? Thinking of fucking him gave me the willies, but anything was better than Kade.
Anger racked my body and I sat there, seething . . . until I felt him. He was coming for me; I could sense him drawing near. The closer we got to the meadow, the more I could smell Kade and his excitement—his lust. Hopefully, he could smell the rage and disgust coming from me.

Title: #Poser
Series: Hashtag Series #5
Author: Cambria Hebert
Release Date: August 18, 2015
Posers gonna pose
I am a man who had nothing, but found everything.
I’ll never go back to nothing ever again.
I vowed to protect her, and that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. 
The pictures I stumbled upon haunt me still, the secret I shoulder is heavy.
They say secrets put distance between two people, but the truth is far more destructive than keeping it will ever be. 
I won’t ever tell. She can’t ever know.
When I look in the mirror my reflection is of who I’m afraid I’ll become and not the man I am. 
It makes me feel like a poser, no better than all the others pretending to be exactly who they aren’t.
How does a man keep it together when everything is unraveling right here in his hands?
I didn’t start any of this.
I never asked for it.
But it came knocking at my door. 
When secrets and threats knock, I don’t hide.
I open the door. 
Because the best way to take down a poser is to be one.
