[Blog Tour - Dream Cast, Excerpt, & Giveaway] Flawed Perfection ~ Cassandra Giovanni






Bobby Beckerson was the American All-Star hockey player--he was the spitting image of perfection to his family. Goofy, sweet and undeniably gorgeous, he had everything but the one girl he wanted: River Ahlers.
River Ahlers is successful in everything but love. She's been in love with Adam Beckerson since they were kids. Worst of all she's stuck right in the middle of the brother's dueling over everything and anything, and she doesn't even know she's the ultimate prize.
Adam Beckerson was a boy with a guitar, a smile that sunk girl's hearts and a stone wall around his own. He was anything but perfect, and no matter how hard he tried he was nothing compared to Bobby. Sweet, damaged, with boyish good-looks, nobody thought Adam loved anyone but himself.
Bobby loved River, River loved Adam and Adam only loved himself--or so everyone thought. Then one night everything changes, and as it threatens to destroy everyone involved a tragedy strikes that will break them all...
GENRE: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Since then Cassandra has written more novels than she can count and put just as many in the circular bin.

She's currently working on her new New Adult Contemporary Romance, Beautifully Flawed. The first novel in the series, Flawed Perfection is scheduled to be published on March 7, 2014.

DREAM CAST

EXCERPT

I knew the song, and I had to take a deep breath as the words of Five Finger Death Punch sunk in. It was painful to watch and hear him singing that song; to know that was how he felt in this very moment. That was how he felt so many times over.

A break came in the singing and he looked away from me and down to the strings as he slapped them with his thumb. I knew he didn’t need to look away. He knew the song by heart, and his voice came again, clear, strong— angry. Just like the singer from the band, he dragged out the alone until it ended in a growling scream.

His shoulders collapsed under the pressure of the words, and his knuckles turned white from holding the guitar neck too hard. I knew he was crying.

I stood slowly and pulled his head to my stomach, running my hands through his hair to comfort him.

He didn’t respond to my touch at first, but then as I continued to run my hands through his hair, he caved, wrapping his arms around my waist as his back wracked with a silent sob.

“I’ll never be enough, River, never enough for them,” he finally whispered, his voice cracking.

He pulled away from me with one arm still around my waist, fingers tangled in my back belt loop while the other wiped his face.

“Why do you always try to be enough for them?” I asked. He was more than enough for them, but they were too blind to see it.

He shook his head as his chest rose with a deep breath before his red eyes met mine.

“Don’t you always try to be the enough for someone else?” he whispered back.

The truth in his words silenced me. I’d always tried to be enough for them too—to prove I could be enough for him. It just never seemed to work.

“I don’t know what you mean,” I finally responded.

His eyes fluttered as his tongue ran over his parched lips. He stood, free hand moving the bass guitar behind him, one arm still around me.

He let his fingers run up my arms as he leaned his lips to my ear.

“You’ll always be too good for me,” he whispered, sending an electric shock up my spine. He knew. He’d always known.

[Review] Addicted To You ~ Krista & Becca Ritchie


She’s addicted to sex. He’s addicted to booze…the only way out is rock bottom.

No one would suspect shy Lily Calloway’s biggest secret. While everyone is dancing at college bars, Lily stays in the bathroom. To get laid. Her compulsion leads her to one-night stands, steamy hookups and events she shamefully regrets. The only person who knows her secret happens to have one of his own.

Loren Hale’s best friend is his bottle of bourbon. Lily comes at a close second. For three years, they’ve pretended to be in a real relationship, hiding their addictions from their families. They’ve mastered the art of concealing flasks and random guys that filter in and out of their apartment.

But as they sink beneath the weight of their addictions, they cling harder to their destructive relationship and wonder if a life together, for real, is better than a lie. Strangers and family begin to infiltrate their guarded lives, and with new challenges, they realize they may not just be addicted to alcohol and sex.

Their real vice may be each other. 

New Adult Romance recommended for readers 18+ for mature content




Aly's Review
“Our selfishness wedges between us. Neither of us is willing to give up what we love for each other. Not yet. And I’m not sure what it’s going to take to let go of our addictions.” - Addicted To You. *whooosh*  me being blown away by the truth in there.

Addicted To You by Krista & Becca Ritchie is not just a love story. It is a story of addiction and personal demons. It is a story of family and how much we hurt those we love. Because Addicted To You shows important lessons we romantics need to learn: sometimes love is not enough.

He's addicted to alcohol.
She's addicted to sex.
They are self destructive, a bomb just ticking. But bombs will always have collateral damage. As much as you try to blow up alone, someone's bound to get hurt. This novel is a full display of that.

“Our love should have mended all the pain and the hurt. Instead, we’re met with more complications, more consequences, more frowns and furrowed brows.” ~ Addicted To You


Lily has a problem. Sex is her constant - and always will be. Her life is made up of a string of forgettable one night stands. But her best friend Lo pushes her, forces her to see that HE is there. Their "relationship" doesn't have to be fake.

Loren "Lo" Hale has a problem. Alcohol is the only thing he could depend on. It is his crutch, his lover, his friend. He has the worst temper and could say such hurtful words. But the only person Lo could really love is Lily.

What I loved about this book is its cynicism and evasion. Lily and Lo hated the world and lived in their own bubble. They hated each other's addictions but had to deal with it. They were broken and lost in their addictions. A typical love story would be them getting together, then POOF, bye bye demons. But it wasn't like that.

 It made it harder.

They didn't WANT to change or give up what they had. Their love for each other wasn't enough because they didn't love themselves. It took self acceptance, love for themselves, and reality to really change. This was a heartfelt book that didn't make the effort to sugarcoat the hardships with addiction.

There were a few editing issues though. Just a few. The following are some of the problems I've found:
-Discrete vs discrete
-Taught vs taut (this seems to be really common among authors)
-Lauren vs Loren (weird, since this is the main character's name)
-People, persons
I know, I'm being so picky. It's just a bit bothering, so it's a personal thing. Read it though. The quality of this NA book surpassed my expectations.

4 whiskeys!


Oh! And it's really cute how they both start with the letter L. For loooove. Haha. Ha. Ha. Kay.

LL (love and... L...?) okay, bye,

Aly

About the Author

Once upon a time ... N.M. Silber was a criminal defense attorney who got up each morning, donned her power suit and sensible pumps, downed a gallon of coffee and set out to "fight the good fight" while trying to not go insane. Having a dark sense of humor and a sarcastic wit helped -- a lot. Another thing that helped was reading. As escapism was the goal, she liked to read romance novels, especially really funny ones and really sexy ones. Then one day something beautiful happened -- she read one that was both funny and sexy at the same time. She hung up her power suit, put away her sensible pumps, and moved her coffee mug to her computer. Now she writes funny and smutty romance novels herself and she lives happily ever after.

Jasmine's Review

The law of attraction was actually the first book I read this year. And it was TOTALLY WORTH IT! These are the kind of books that you would never get tired of. I could read these books over and over and still find them as hilarious as the first time if not more. Usually I like dual POVs but for this book I was able to appreciate it even more because it is only in Gabrielle's POV. And let me tell you, she is one of the most awkward, clumsy, and hilarious person I have ever met (fictional and nonfictional). And if you don't know, which you probably don't, I LOVE AWKWARD, CLUMSY, AND HILARIOUS PEOPLE! I also love that the other characters are pairing off!! I just love it when that happens. As you can see I am overusing the word love because this is the only way I can explain this series, I JUST LOVE IT! One of my favorite things about this series is the stupid cases they get. There should be a movie made on cases that are mentioned in the book. Anyway, I am absolutely out of words I'm just laughing my ass off. Also, there is an added mystery that just makes you keep on reading! In other words it is just PERFECTO!

5 Gravels? (Is that what you call the hammer thingy in court?):D

FYI gravel is just a bunch of tiny rocks and when you search "hammer thing used in court" that picture comes out.:)

[Blog Tour - Review] This Girl Stripped ~ Dawn Robertson


My innocence was shattered one steamy October night, when I sold my soul to the devil to pay for a week in a dirty motel room.
Thinking I could rid myself of him, I fled the safety of the nomad lifestyle I had embraced my entire life for the security of a small upstate New York town, alongside my big sister Star.

What I never anticipated was a green eyed stranger that would steal my heart and never look back. And a dark eyed man on a motorcycle, who would teach me how to trust again. Both of them completely shattering every wall I ever put up to keep men out of my vulnerable world.

I am Paisley Bloom, and this is my devastating story.

Jasmine's Review
The things I love and hate in this book is kinda equal. More on the good side though. One thing you should know (or not) is that I have only read the first book Hers. So I don't really know what happend with the other characters. 

Anyway! The things like first. Softens the things I don't like about this book.:)
- Paisley is a strong character. I just adore strong characters. It didn't take her FOREVER to get over her problems. She just took life's shit and threw it right back. 
- I had no idea who she would end up with. River or Diesel. I'm just happy that she did end up with HIM (I won't tell you who! Just read it).
- The story didn't take forever. It didn't dwell on the months after the rape. It didn't go into detail about how sad she was and how depressed she was. Like New Moon <- that is the most boring book I have ever finished seriously. (NO OFFENSE TO NEW MOON LOVERS)

Now onto the things I didn't like.
- The Triangle. This is probably my fault since i didn't read the summary well. But I hate triangles. This is just for me a lot of people love triangles and you might too.:) I just hate all the drama in triangles. But this really didn't have any angst so it's kinda a neutral thing. I guess? (Darn I suck at this!)
- How quickly she was able to have sex again. I'm not sure how this works since I don't know any rape victims but I am pretty sure there is gonna be a trauma. I don't think it would be that easy for a victim to allow the self to be touched again, but it might just depend on what kind of person you are. But as I said Paisley is a really a strong girl.
- I didn't really feel the connection between the characters. Between Paisley and River, and Paisely and Diesel. I just didn't feel the fire? Spark? Whatever you call it. If the story was a little bit longer then Dawn could have shown more of their connection is what I think. But what I think doesn't matter so READ IT! 

As y'all can see the things I didn't like is really useless and has nothing to do much with the story but more on my opinion. So try it and read it. You might just like it.:)

3.5 Stripper Pole ( It looks just like a normal pole.) :D




About Dawn:


Dawn Robertson is a twenty-something indie erotic romance, and mother.  She lives in sunny senior citizen packed Florida, where she wrangles her kids, and Pitbull puppy.
Dawn can normally be found swearing like a sailor, making late night drive-thru appearances, arguing with her kids (or being run over by their power wheels),  reading a steamy romance while hiding in her bathroom, writing her little heart out on her laptop (or dragging her Macbook to the Genius bar praying they can save her latest work in progress), or sipping on a smoothie. She loves to hear from her fans, readers, and authors alike. Feel free to drop her a message.
Dawn rarely takes life seriously, so be sure to expect heavy sarcasm from her. She is also the life of the party, so be sure to meet up with her at one of the many author events she will be attending in the next couple months. Buy her a shot of whiskey, and she will love you for life.

About the Author

I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.
I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.

[Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway] Yes, Master ~ Margaret McHeyer

20140225-162426.jpg

photo 2 (7)

My uncle abused me.

I was 10 years old when it started.

At 13 he told me I was no longer wanted because I had started to develop.

At 16 I was ready to kill him.

Today, I’m broken.

Today, I only breathe to survive.

My name’s Sergeant Major Ryan Jenkins and today, I’m ready to tell you my story.

“Master would flog me if I did, she won’t be happy when I tell her what happened here.”

“Master?”

“Stella.”

Oh, Master.

I startle awake as I leap off the bed and sprawl on the floor.

“Ry!” Mason yells from the other side of the door. I jump up off the floor and swing the bedroom door open.

“You scared the shit out of me, Mason.” I run my hand over my eyes and face trying to wake up. “What do you want, man?” But I’m met with silence. When I look over at Mase, he’s staring at my body. He’s mouth’s open and his eyes are so wide. He rakes his stare down my body, then back up again. He lifts an eyebrow as he ogles me. I look down and notice I’m completely naked. I fell asleep on my bed with just the towel wrapped around me and he scared me with his bashing that now I’m standing before him totally exposed.

He’s not moving away, and neither am I.

“Mason.” I lower my voice as he looks up at me and just stares.

He can see straight through me, totally bare and open, for him to see all my secrets.

“We need to leave in an hour,” Mase says as he takes a step closer to me.

I can feel his heat, and my body instantly reacts to him.

Don’t be a coward Ryan, just reach out and touch him.

His brown eyes turn from a hard brown into a molten chocolate as we stand a mere step apart from each other.

Our breathing is labored and rapid.

Mason reaches forward and brings his hand up to my chest, but before he touches me, his demeanor changes and he retracts it, dropping it beside his body.

“I can’t,” he whispers as he turns away from me and goes into his bedroom.

My head spins as I close my door and stand completely ashamed in my room.

He doesn’t want me.

Why would he?

I’m broken.

I don't do 'normal'.

I've found that the more I write, the more I like being different to other authors. I write in first person, and I love to challenge a reader.
I take the normal and switch it around.
For me, I really enjoy getting a reaction from a reader. So if I can evoke an emotion (regardless of if it's the emotion the reader wants) then I figure that I've done my job as an author I want to be.
I really quite revel in taking people out of their comfort zones and pushing them to read something different.
My genre of writing is, well quite frankly, where ever my mind goes. I won't label myself because I don't like sticking to one genre.
My goal with writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second.
I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept.
I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life's hard enough as it is!
I hope you enjoy my books, I've had a hoot writing them. There's more to come.....
Til next time.

Jasmine's Review

So this was Hot, Intense, and Dark! Haven't read a book like that in a while... A loooong while.

Just so you know I do not like BDSM, AT ALL!! So I never finished Fifty Shades. Don't hate!!!!:) I'm sure I'm not the only one. Anyway, this does contain BDSM but there are reasons why I was able to tolerate it. Which I will state, now.:)

Reasons:

1. There was not a lot of pain. Pain hurts. Whether it's real or fictional. IT HURTS so I don't like it happening to anyone.
2. His submission to Stella was his way of dealing with the pain. He did not join that lifestyle because he liked her and that was what she wanted but because he thought it was the way to save himself from his past. So in other words he did not join that lifestyle for her but for himself.
3. Stella was the Dom. I prefer a female Dom over a male Dom. Because if it becomes too much the dude can stop it.

Those are pretty much the reasons why I also like the book.:)

Ryan has been through a lot in the past with his uncle and all. And that's why he is broken inside. Like REALLY broken inside. He doesn't know himself anymore and it is killing him. Literally, he drinks too much. I do really like his daughter. Sweet little Lani.:)

This story focuses more on Ryan and less on the problems with the other characters. Which seriously makes me curious... A lot. Like how did Stella start that lifestyle? Or what is wrong with Mason?

I read Margaret's other books so I was actually expecting a sudden twist in the end so when there wasn't I was surprised. So either way, Mrs. Margaret McHeyzer, you did it again! You gave the unexpected.
