Things a good neighbor can do for you:

1. Give you a cup of sugar

2. Let you borrow his lawnmower

3. Water your plants while you're on vacation

4. Make your eyes roll back in your head with his tongue

Katya Tocci has never paid much attention to who lives next door - her career always kept her too busy. She's a good girl, working her way to becoming the most sought after cake designer in all of San Francisco.

But even a good girl's gotta cut loose once in a while, right? So one fake dating profile later, and she's ready to tarnish her squeaky clean image. Little does she know, her fun time is closer to home than she ever imagined.

Throw in a neighbor who wants to corrupt her, and another who just wants to own her, and her entire world is flipped upside down.

Who knew neighbors could be so helpful?

About the Author:

Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Release Blitz & Reviews - Disclaim by Pam Godwin


Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?

Warning: Graphic sex and violence. Age 18+ only
It is recommended to read after Deliver & Vanquish, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

Genre: Dark Romance
Series: Book 3 in Deliver series

* It is recommended to read after Deliver & Vanquish, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

If you aren't reading this series yet, why not?

The release of Disclaim is so exciting for Angie and I. Angie loved Deliver and hounded me about reading it back when it released. I kept putting it off because I don't read many dark books. Not out of fear but because dark reads weren't appealing to me. I should have listened to my reading buddy sooner because she was right and I was very, very, wrong!  I finally read Deliver and was blown away. It takes a lot to wow me or surprise me but I think Godwin is the Queen of the big twist.Then Vanquish released and I was in a daze for a while after reading it. Van Quiso is hands down one of the best anti-heroes ever and his heroine Amber was amazing. Now with the release of Disclaim we were on pins and needles waiting for a chance to read it. Disclaim is a wonderful addition to this world Pam Godwin has created. If you love second-chance love stories Camila and Matias will leave you satisfied. As with all books in this series the twists and turns keep coming and the possibilities for more books are endless. If you love dark romance that keeps you guessing and is superbly written you need to be reading this series. Congrats to Pam Godwin on release day!! We are already anxious to see what you have up your sleeve next.


Shanda 4.5 stars

Disclaim can be read as a standalone but this review contains a few spoilers from Deliver, so beware. This is the story of Matias and Camila; two people that fell in love as kids and now are about to cross paths again after their horrific separation.

Camila is one of the slaves that Van and Liv released. She is now part of the group of ex-slaves (now freedom fighters) that share a burning passion to end human trafficking. She has been tracking an operation in Austin and is getting desperate to take them down. To do this she wants to go undercover to end them. Camila has no idea that her plan is going to reunite her with her long lost love.

Matias believed for a time that Camila was dead. This destroyed him and he basically went on a rampage seeking his revenge. The things done to him, the secrets he keeps, and the things he has done have changed him and made him darker. But after he discovers Camila is alive he meticulously plans his reunion with her and he wants it on his terms.

I won’t say more about the story because this series is best read without spoilers so the reveals are more exciting. I did figure out Matias pretty early on but not the big reveal, and I have to say it was pretty damn awesome. My only complaint was that I kind of wish Matias had shared a few secrets a bit earlier. I kept feeling like Camila was going to mess everything up because she was hot headed and focused on her end game. In the end I understood Matias’s reasoning because of his end game with Camila but I would have liked some of this a bit earlier so it didn’t feel so confusing.

I think Disclaim is a great addition to the Deliver series but Vanquish is still firmly sitting on my top 5 all-time favorites list. I am selfishly kind of glad of this just because that book was EVERYTHING and Van Quiso is a crazy awesome anti-hero. It was great to re-visit Van and Amber and I feel a re-read coming on. That being said I can’t wait to see what this author brings us next. I had assumed we might be getting books for all of Van and Liv’s former slaves but Ms. Godwin did a great job of opening up another aspect of this world and more characters for me to want. I am really intrigued by Frizz ( the visual for him alone was amazing )and I wouldn’t be mad at story for Nico or Tate. Disclaim took a fabulous turn in the Deliver world and as always Pam Godwin does twists and turns like no other. It goes without saying that I will be anxiously awaiting the next release.

Angie 4 stars

Camila is one of Van and Liv's slaves that they released. She's now part of their group that takes down slave traders in the Austin area. But before she was taken she was in love with Matias. For a year Matias did unspeakable things searching for her. Then she called him. Ten years later she still calls when she needs a favor but after what they both went through neither of them were ready to see each other. Now Matias is ready.

I won't say much else about the plot. I will say that I thought Camila's plan was crazy and risky and, honestly, I thought she played it terribly. She should be thankful other factors were at play. Matias is so full of secrets that I almost felt like Godwin should have let the reader in on a few of them. There were times I was so confused. But then the reveal blew me away. So I suggest if, like me, you start to feel lost just keep reading. But then the reveals kept coming. So much that it started to feel over the top.

My few issues in no way hurt what a good read this still was. I was hooked. I mean it doesn't hold a candle to Vanquish (almost impossible) but I still enjoyed it. And there's a hint that there will be more to the series. (Frizz please for book five!) I certainly hope so. Well done.

Review The Darkest Link, Second Circle Tattoos series by Scarlett Cole

Title: The Darkest Link
Author: Scarlett Cole
Series: Second Circle Tattoos
Release Date: August 30th 2016


When her car breaks down off the side of a lonely highway far from her sunny Miami home, tattoo artist Lia never expected her very own white knight to ride up on the back of a barely street-legal motorcycle...and she never expected to fall for her dark savior. After a string of failed relationships and a bruised heart, Lia is not looking for forever, and the hot mechanic, with his sexy scruff and shaggy hair, is simply impossible to resist and the perfect candidate for mind-blowingly-perfect, no-strings-attached one night stand.

Reid left his life in Chicago far behind him and hasn't been back, but he's never been able to escape the guilt he feels about his own painful role in inviting a monster into his baby sister's life. A monster who almost destroyed her. Being with Lia is an unexpected gift, one he doesn't feel he deserves, and their one night together has him wanting more than he should. Especially since she doesn't know the truth about his past. However, when he finds Lia’s bracelet in his bed, he has the perfect excuse to drive down and surprise her at her tattoo studio, Second Circle Tattoos, in Miami. He's in for an even bigger shock - and a fist to the face - when his past and present collide in the humid Miami weather when he runs into the last person he’d ever expect to see in a tattoo studio: Harper, the sister he betrayed, and the last link to his former life.

Review by Iza

This book lured me in with its cover and blurb, like it always happens. But then, it got me hooked with the story.

Our heroine meets our hero when her car breaks down on the side of the road. Sparks immediately fly, you can feel the attraction, the chemistry between them. It's swoon-worthy.

Actually, our hero, Reid, is absolutely swoon-worthy. He has a past, true and if you've read the previous books, you may know about it. I went in blind and it gutted me, it hurt to read about what he went through. Now our Lia isn't that far off either. Her dad's a monster I wanted to smack more often than not and I loved her spirit, I loved how she danced to the beat of her own drum, not caring what others said, yet she was selfless because she made sacrifices for the sake of her mother. 

They are perfect together and I honestly didn't care that it didn't take them much to fall in love with each other. It still wasn't an insta-anything because they actually got to see sides of one another. I don't blame them, I'm in love with them both. Major girl crush on Lia! 

And of course there's a quote that stood out and I think it's one of the best I've ever read.

"I need you to promise me that you will never let anybody dim your light. It's the most goddamn beautiful thing about you. Don't dim it for anyone. Ever."

I need a Reid. Where can I find myself a Reid?

Needless to say, I loved this book and am giving it 5 stars and I'm going to read the others in the series too. I want to thank the publishers for the copy given in exchange for my honest review. It was my absolute pleasure.

Release Day Blitz Stripped Down by Emma Hart


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00035] 


What do you get when you mix a bottle of tequila, a single mom moonlighting as a stripper, and her sinfully sexy boss with an impulsive side?

Married. You get married.

Rich. Demanding. Hot. Crazy.

That was Beckett Cruz in a nutshell.

Not to mention wild, determined, dangerous, and forbidden.

He was my boss—and, after a drunken moment of insanity, my new husband.

An annulment was impossible... so was keeping him.

I was taking my daughter and leaving, determined to give her a quieter life.

But Beckett Cruz had never taken no for an answer.

And he wasn't about to take mine.

What happens in Vegas... might just keep you there.

“Beck?” I managed to get his name out just before he opened the front door.
“Yeah?” He spun back to face me, his dark eyes unreadable.
I turned my face to the side so I could see him fully. “You don't have to go,” I said softly. “You can stay. Only if you want to though.”
He rubbed his hand down his face, his eyes never leaving mine, then walked back into the kitchen toward me. I stood up away from the fridge as he stopped right next to me.
Slowly, he touched his hand to my face, his fingertips teasing my hairline. His dark gaze searched mine, and my heart jumped into my throat as the usual tingles his touch sparked danced down my neck. Then, he slid his hand into my hair, allowing the blonde strands to fall away from his fingertips.
“Do I want to go home to my big-ass house with its cold emptiness?” he asked in a low voice. “Or go to the club where half the girls there still see me as a mountain to be conquered? Not particularly, Blondie. I'd rather stay here. Even if there will be a demand for movies and water and foot rubs from a tiny, sick person.”
“You can.” My voice was quiet, like his. Even if my internal screams from self-preservation and vulnerability were deafeningly loud as they told me I was a fool, that he had to go, that this would never be enough for him.
“Do you want me to?” His question was... honest.
Like he didn't want me to answer.
“Do I want you to stay here in my tiny house so my daughter can fall more in love with you than she already is? Not really. But...” Don't be a fool, Cassie. Don't admit you want him to stay. He's just going to hurt you. “I don't exactly want you to go either.”
“For her, or for you?”
“I don't want to answer that question.”
“If I kissed you right now, would you ram your knee into my cock?”
“I'd briefly consider it, but I probably wouldn't do it.”
His lips twitched to the side. “You just answered the question.”
Then, of course, he cupped the back of my head, and he kissed me. It was slow, sweet, gentle. And I didn't consider kneeing him in the balls for a single second.
Beck pulled back and trailed his hand down my arm before he finally let me go. “I'm going home to get changed and then come back. Do you need anything while I'm gone? For CiCi? You?”
“I don't...” I sighed and chewed back my pride. “I meant to go to the store today after work to get some stuff like bread, milk... important stuff. But now I can't.”
“I can get it. Just tell me what you need.”
I bit the inside of my lip, then nodded. “Okay. Let me write it down.” I walked through into the front room with him hot on my heels and grabbed the notebook and pen from under the coffee table. A few things were already scrawled down, so I added a couple more things, including more medicine. I tore the sheet off the notebook, stood, then gave it to Beck. “Let me get my wallet.”
He grabbed my wrist, stopping me. “I'm not taking your money.”
I lifted my gaze to his. “You can't pay for my groceries.”
“I can and I will.”
“You can't and you won't.”
“I can and I will.”
“You can't and you won't.”
“I can do this all day, baby. I'm stubborn as fuck.” His eyes told me he wasn't lying. “And we all know I'm a brat about the word no. So, I can, I will, and I'm going to. If I can't help you by buying a measly eight items, I'm an asshole who shouldn't be allowed around other people.”
“You can't buy my groceries,” I repeated. It was a lame argument. I was going to lose, but I'd fight until I went down.
Beck's eyes twinkled as he leaned in. “Don't worry. If you really want to pay me back, I'll take a blow job. I imagine your lips around my cock will be a pretty good thank you.”
My jaw dropped as he backed off with a wink.
“Mouth open already, Cassie? Enthusiasm. I like that.”
I snapped my jaw shut and glared at him. “You're a dirty pig.”
“I know. But I've got fifty bucks that says you'll be sucking my dick by bedtime. If you don't agree...” He shrugged one shoulder, his lips curved in that dangerous smirk.
“If you're lucky, I'll bite it.”
“I'll take that as I'm in for a good time.”
One more wink, complete with expanding grin, and he was gone.
Motherfucking asshole.
