Release Day Blitz for Insider by Olivia Cunning

Title: Insider (Exodus End #1)

Author: Olivia Cunning

Release Date: June 30, 2015

Find on Goodreads

Toni wants to be an insider.

Logan just wants inside her.

She’s finally ready to rock...

Toni Nichols set aside her dreams to raise her little sister, but now she's reaching for the stars as the creator of a revolutionary interactive biography about Exodus End. She’s on tour with the rock band to immerse herself in their world, but how will she ever gain the trust of four veteran superstars who've been burned by the media before? Nobody said this was going to be easy. Then again, good things can come in hard packages.

He's always ready to roll…

Adrenaline junkie Logan Schmidt lives for the rush of playing his bass guitar before thousands of screaming fans. When he's not performing onstage or in the bedroom, he's looking for his next thrill in extreme sports. So why does a sweet, innocent journalist get his heart pumping and capture his full attention? Is Toni the real deal or just digging up dirt on his band? Logan’s eager to rock Toni’s world and roll her in the sack, but when she starts to get too close to his heart, she takes her insider look to a place he may never be willing to go.

“Good girls are easy,” Logan said.

“Logan, don’t fuck with her,” Max said. “This is business, not for your twisted sense of pleasure.”

“I can mix business with pleasure.” Logan peered toward the open bus door.

Shouldn’t Toni be climbing the steps now? He hoped he hadn’t scared her away. He found her incredibly attractive. He had a thing for women who understated their beauty, and Toni took understatement to a whole new level. And her rack? God, he could get lost between her enormous tits for hours. He hoped she wasn’t wearing a padded bra under that turtleneck sweater. He planned to find out really soon.

Dare thumped Logan on the side of the head. “You’re so full of shit.”

“Why do you say that?”

“You’re talking smack. You like her.”

“I don’t even know her. How could I like her?”

“Are you talking about me?” a soft, feminine voice said from the top of the bus steps.


Logan turned his head and smiled at her. “Of course not.”

“Oh,” she said, her face falling.

“I already know I like you,” he said.

Her hand moved to her mouth. She touched her lips with two fingers, and a pretty blush spread across her face. Sweet, shy, and female, a combination Logan could never resist. Especially the female part. Her fantastic tits were just a bonus.

Combining her love for romantic fiction and rock 'n roll, USA Today Best-Selling Author Olivia Cunning writes erotic romance centered around rock musicians.

Raised on hard rock music from the cradle, she attended her first Styx concert at age six and fell instantly in love with live music. She's been known to travel over a thousand miles just to see a favorite band in concert. As a teen, she discovered her second love, romantic fiction -- first, voraciously reading steamy romance novels and then penning her own.

Amy's ARC Review of Forget by N. A. Alcorn

Brooke Sawyer is a successful record producer living in L.A. She has endured a lifetime’s worth of pain, but despite everything she’s been through, she still has the biggest heart. She’d do anything for the ones she loves, even putting their needs above her own. 

When she visits Paris for one month, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with gorgeous musician, Dylan Bissette. But he doesn't know about Brooke's life back home. He doesn't know about Jamie. 

The best way to keep a secret is to pretend there isn't one. 

Falling in love was not part of the plan. 
He broke down my walls. 
And the moment he whispered, "You've wrecked me, Little Wing," I was done for. 
I didn’t mean to fall in love, but Dylan made it too easy. 

Meeting her was fate. 
Pursuing her was a choice. 
But falling in love with her was out of my control. 
Brooke ruined me for everyone else. 

Music connects them, but secrets may keep them apart. 
This is just the beginning. Changing Colors, Part One 

Changing Colors is a two book series. 
At the end of Forget, there is a sneak peek of Blur (Changing Colors, Part Two). 

Review - 

Forget N. A. Alcorn 3.5 stars Brooke and Dylan's story. First let me say the “rocker” story line is not my personal choice. I prefer more gritty storylines and less drama and romance. However this isn’t bad. When Brooke's beloved grandmother, Millie, passes away, she finds a note from her grandmother that includes tickets, hotel all arranged for her to relive the trip to Paris that her grandmother herself took once upon a time. She planned everything from the places she would go and the food she would try leaving her a Paris Bucket List. Millie had a whirlwind affair while there and sends Brooke right into the same situation. Dylan, is half-British, half-French, and a rocker/singer/in a band. He is smitten with Brooke then minute they met awkwardly on a bus. Brooke was heading to check off one of her items on her bucket list when she has a less than normal encounter with the hottie man himself. What started out as back and forth flirtation turned into a steamy romance. There was a whole bunch of other things going on as well – interesting characters, grief, and secrets. The cliffhanger at the end may leave you a little miffed but it only lets you know there is much more to come. Read on!

My 5 star ARC review of The Allure of Julian LeFray by R.S. Grey

ARC was provided for an honest review!
5 stars! 

From: JosephineKeller@LLDesigns.com
To: LilyNBlack@gmail.com
Subject: Justin Timberlake Nudes!

Lily, you predictable perv. I knew you’d open this email faster if I tempted you with a glimpse of JT's “PP”. Well, put your pants back on and grab some bubbly because I have much better news to share.


As of tomorrow, I’ll be the new executive assistant at Lorena Lefray Designs. I am SO excited, but there’s one itty bitty problem: I won’t be Lorena’s assistant. I’ll be working for her older brother, Julian.

I know what you're thinking- "But Jo, what’s the problem?"

Google him. Now. He’s the man in the fitted navy suit whose face reminds you that there’s hope yet for this cruel, ugly world. Keep scrolling…Do you see those dimples? Yup. That’s the Julian Lefray I will be reporting to tomorrow morning.

Lord, help us all...


My review -

To: RSGrey@Gmail.com
From: Tracy@RamblingsFromBeneaththeSheets.com  
Subject: I have been Allured by this book!  


What can I say.....You had me a page one.  I knew this one was going to have me in stitches and shoot to the top of my R.S. Grey Fave's. You have become one of my go to authors.  

This was a Hilarious 5 star ROMCOM read!  I couldn't put it down.  I enjoyed everything about it.  The humor, that is found on every page!  The banter between Julian and Jo and their chemistry was spot on!   I enjoyed how you allowed their relationship to grow slowly.  This was an enjoyable and funny read.  The characters were easy to connect with.  They allowed you to take the journey with them....slowly and with loads of laughter.  

You allowed Jo to move away from her family to go after a dream.  Even through the toughest times, she held her own.  Did what she needed to do and in the end came out on top.  She was independent, determined to go after and secure her dream of being in the fashion industry in NYC.  She was very easy to relate to.  She was so funny!  I want to be her friend!   I can appreciate the fact that you didn't allow her to be one of the pitiful female leads who depends on the male lead for everything. 

 Julian surprised me.   I won't lie.  I mean , at first I was thinking oh yay..... another A**hole Alpha Rich guy..... he was opposite and even a little bit of a gentleman.  He never really flaunted his wealth or tried to "fix" Jo's problems for her.  He tried to be as professional towards Jo as he could.  He had just enough Alpha tendencies to make you love him and not come across as some A**.  

But hey.... "Holy Guaca-do Me" when the sparks are finally ignited....it's magical. 

I enjoyed the way this was told in alternating POV's. This is definitely a must read for all.  Great beach read or sitting by the pool read.  

The only thing I wish we had was a longer more detailed Epilogue. But hey.... if things go the way your readers hope they will go.... we will see more of them in possibly the story of the best friends =)

Thank you for always bringing your best and putting out such Epic work!   You have truly grown as an author and I look forward to reading many more of your beautiful and amazing stories. You continue to give us likeable characters with relatable stories and  realistic situations.

Release Boost for Fighting for Forever by JB Salsbury

Title: Fighting for Forever

Series: Fighting #6

Author: JB Salsbury

 Release Date: June 23, 2015


Slut. Hooker. Whore.

The taunts never bothered me. They only see what I allow them to see, and a Las Vegas stripper is the perfect cover.

My life had direction. I had a mission—until the man I needed vanished and is presumed dead.

It’s time to move on—give up the dream for revenge—and no one shows me that more than the mop-headed fighter with eyes the color of the ocean.

If anyone can teach me just how sweet life can be, it’s him. But first, I’d have to let go.

Mase. Baywatch. Mayhem.

I’m known by many names, but there’s only one that stirs panic and worry in my gut every time I’m called it.


I’ve bailed him out of trouble for years, so when he turns up in Vegas and asks for me, I’m prepared for the worst. And the worst is exactly what I get in the form of a lilac-eyed beauty named Trix.

She’s everything I hate about Vegas: a stripper, loose with her body and her morals. But there’s something about her, a complexity that she buries deep, and I’m determined to uncover it.

The deeper I go, the less I understand. When I finally learn the truth, we engage in a battle where life and death hang in the balance. Fighting could kill us both, but if we win, forever is the prize.

Release Tour Wire Pierce Securities # 2 by Anne Conley

Evan Rocco has been a hero to Paige Lawson for as long as she could remember.  So when she runs into him in a bar after a major professional coup, she’s feeling celebratory and reckless.  But it can’t go anywhere, because after all, he’s Evan Rocco.  When she finds her gaming company in trouble, there’s only one man she can turn to.

Evan can’t get the woman who disappeared after their one­-night­ stand six months ago out of his head.  He’d honestly thought there was more between them besides just sex—a connection he’d never felt before.  When PSL, his favorite game software company, is the victim of sabotage, he jumps at the chance to help them solve the mystery behind The Crimson Lady, the fan­made character   who’s taking credit for murder.  Maybe it will get his mind off the woman of his dreams.

When he realizes who the CEO of PSL actually is, he has to get over his own issues or else he’ll put the one woman in danger he never wanted to hurt. 

This is book two in the Pierce Securities series, a stand­alone story.  The first book, while not necessary to read, is Craze.








Book One in the Pierce Securities series, Craze, is available now at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, and most other online retailers.

When Krista catches her boss doing the unthinkable, the only thing she can do is run.  Straight into

the arms of the eye­candy she’s been trying not to flirt with on her lunch break.  But whose side is

he on?

Ryan’s security firm is having a hard time getting off the ground, and this may be just the job to help the

company out.  But pseudo ­bounty hunter isn’t really what Pierce Securities is trying to get a name

for.  When he finds out their target is the classy lady from the park, all of Ryan’s senses go on high

alert.  What do these men want with her?

Krista is forced into Ryan’s sanctuary in the woods, where she realizes just how wild he is, but she

doesn’t want to tame him.  He may feel his methods of protection endangered her, but without

Krista in his life, Ryan is crazed.
