The Full Girlfriend Experience by Dana Ross @danarossauthor #review


 

 

When this book starts you think it will be gritty and smutty, but no it isnt. There are a few “cases” discussed and some strange behavior, but nothing totally x rated. Just like any other political setting, a madam has dirt & political dirty tricks at her disposal. They are all connected. Yeah kind of sick right? Anyways, the main, a DC Madam Faith Crawley is contacted by her former client, Senator William Drummond. Right off the bat you know the dialogue is there, but you are not able to read between the lines. The plot is good as well as the history discussed.  Faith is in some financial trouble so no bedroom tricks for her, she goes political dirty trick. The saying that money is at the root of all evil is true.

At times the Faith character shows you a side of business and at other times she shows she is a broken woman. The book explores politics, the madam angle and how secretive people can be. The truth does come out in the end.

Very good read!

Winter Flower by Charles Sheehan-Miles #Review


OH gosh what can I say that will not spoil anything? I dont know honestly. One of the shelf category on the GR main page says transgender, which got me annoyed, not that you cant see something coming. Moving on the characters have so much going on. Cole is the father that seemingly messed everything he touched up. Erin is a deep character that had a lot, almost too much, inner dialogue. Brenna, I would say is the main character, but not time wise in the book, I think Sam got more writing time.

Overall it is pretty deep. I liked the dark parts. Brenna’s ordeal was quite accurate. The police investigation, the courts and turmoil was pretty vivid. People doing their own thing within the confines of the same sad four walls. I want to say something that I didnt like, and that was Sam playing his online game. It was all in character and simulated acting in an online game. It wasnt necessary in my opinion. It could be I am too old to get into that type of video role playing.

Overall a solid read. I enjoyed it, but I think it is a matter of preference. It may not appeal to some people and that is ok as long as you recognize the writing and depth of characters.

The Full Girlfriend Experience by Dana Ross @danarossauthor #Spotlight


 

 

When DC Madam Faith Crawley receives a call from former client, Senator William Drummond, it’s the answer to her prayers. The money the dirty politician offers her to smear his rival Finn Billings will save Faith’s business, her lifestyle, and her girls.

Raised in the shadow of a political magnate, Finn Billings has the credentials to get the job done, but he lacks confidence and wonders if politics is truly the life he desires.
Using the façade of her front business, a PR firm, Faith turns Finn into a political powerhouse while obtaining the evidence Drummond needs to destroy Finn’s political chances. But Faith didn’t plan on falling in love with her mark.

Now she has the toughest decision ever—give the sleazy senator incriminating photos of Finn to save her business or give up everything for the sake of love.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve only felt one thing – pain. It consumes every part of me and I just want it to end. Enough has happened over the years and I’m ready to make it all stop.

The night I lay out my plan and am fully prepared to end my life – he stops me. His act is simple, offering me his hand but in that, he gave me so much hope.

While Twister may have won the battle, he didn’t win the war. My demons are a constant nuisance and I’m left wondering, will I survive and finally find peace? Or did I make the biggest mistake in my life accepting his help?

Before I say anything, know I love Ginger and all her work. My fave book is still Blindness and the whole Waiting on the Sidelines series. I feel love for!!

The style is always similar and there is always at least one huge twist. This book started out so slow. You really get the character of Lily and feel for her situation. Her parents were killed and she is sent to stay with her only cousin Alice. The part of Alice that is overlooked is her mental state. She is nuts! and not at all loving. I adored her husband Collin because he was genuine and in the end was the only champion for Lily.

Image result for piano

This book is set in Chicago (Cubs, just saying there is some snow in here too) and in a high school setting. Lily goes with her cousin for an interview and meets Henry and his adopted Mother. She is a big rich, wealthy and powerful B*tch Enough said. Henry is complex, moody and somehow shows he is generous with his credit card.

Lily sees this piano in Elena’s home and shows interest. Believe me it is shocking that Elena offers to teach her. What is more shocking is that Lily is great. I mean she starts off with FIRE. She learns fast and becomes scholarship material.

Please read this book! I dragged it out, because there are NBA playoffs. Last night I wanted to leave it at 80% and then I just couldn’t do it. The last 20% of this book had me shaking my head a few times. WOW mini mind blowing scenes, I tell you this is where the angst arrives.

from BRED By Ginger Scott

A coming-of-age love story inspired by Great Expectations

(Copyright Ginger Scott, 2019)

“You aren’t just the sum of Elena’s decisions, Henry. You’re more.”

 

 “You can’t be too careful in our world though, you know. One foolish decision could send you toppling down to the bottom of the ladder. Nobody ever makes the climb back up to where they were. Not if you let another person weigh you down.”

Elena says

 

 

But Henry is nothing like me. He’s broken in a different way, and he doesn’t feel things like pressure or guilt. That much I know. He barely feels at all.

 

Ginger Scott is an Amazon-bestselling and Goodreads Choice Award-nominated author of several young and new adult romances, including Waiting on the Sidelines, Going Long, The Hail Mary, Blindness, How We Deal With Gravity, This Is Falling, You and Everything After, The Girl I Was Before, Wild Reckless, Wicked Restless, In Your Dreams, The Hard Count, Hold My Breath, A Boy Like You, A Girl Like Me, Memphis and Cry Baby.

A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher, point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for newspapers, magazines and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at http://www.littlemisswrite.com.

When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).

Bruised Series: Brody Brothers by Stacy Gail #Contemporary #Romance @EJBookpromos @stacy_gail


Title: Bruised
Series: Brody Brothers
Author: Stacy Gail
Genre: Contemporary Standalone Romance
Release Date: May 23, 2019

“You’re coming with me.”
When Killian Brody showed up at Dallas Faircloth’s work with news that her half-brother might die without her help, she never expected the oldest and sexiest Brody to freaking kidnap her to ensure her cooperation.
The scandalous affair between Dallas’s mother and Killian’s father made everything inside Dallas revolt at the Brody name. It was because of a Brody that her life had been left in ruins at the age of eight, and she’d had to rebuild all on her own. She hated the Brodys. Which was too bad, really. Killian Brody was take-charge, arrogant and so damn sexy she would have climbed him like a tree if it weren’t for that last name of his.
Her weak-willed mother had proven to her that the men in the Brody family were as addictive as any drug, and Dallas didn’t want to get hooked. But when Killian turns his sights on her and makes her believe she’s his greatest weakness, she has a choice—play it safe, or dive in headfirst and risk falling in love with a Brody man.
85,000 words
***This standalone contemporary romance contains multiple sex scenes.

A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail wrote stories between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a skating coach who was also a romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from PNR and cyberpunk to contemporary romance at night, both dreams have come true.
