I love psychological thrillers. This was a great book, in my opinion. The writing was great! There is no distinction between the authors. I was wondering for a while in between gasping, if they were writing alternating chapters or characters POV, then I realized it didnt matter. The seamless plot didn’t give me any idea who writes what part. At part 2 things heat up between both Jess and Dr. Shields, making the reader wonder who is crazy? Maybe both of them.

While just devouring this I will say the two standouts for me were the premise and the characters. The premise is an advertisement on campus to participate in a study about morality and ethics. So how the main character Jess gets caught up and attends the screening is amazing! First night I read 30% and left off because it was the start of Part 2

 

Overall the characters were just jaw dropping! The Dr. Shields duo had me thinking an awful lot. The confidentiality agreements, ethical misdeed, affairs, grades, deaths and drama kept me up late to finish. A phenomenal read. I don’t know how anyone could think less.

 

Should a punishment always fit the crime?

This is SO hard to answer because to me, I felt like Dr. Shields chose to psychologically punish, instead of …well any other choice. Likely any other choice would be a lot easier than this cat and mouse crazy talk. Oh my!

Burg Series: Reed Security Series by Giulia Lagomarsino @crzybookladyluv @ejbookpromos


Title: Burg
Series: Reed Security Series
Author: Giulia Lagomarsino
Genre: Contemporary/Romance Suspense
Release Date: January 18, 2019
Blake “Burg” Reasenburg has it all. A woman he loves, a new baby, and the greatest job he could want. But that all changes in just the blink of an eye. Less than a 10% chance to survive is what the doctors tell them. There’s nothing he can do to save her. There’s nothing he wouldn’t give to trade places with her.
This book was inspired by true events.

“Blake, I want to keep it a secret.”
I was pacing back and forth in the doctor’s office. Emma didn’t want to know, but I needed to know. “You don’t understand. I need to know.”
“Why?”
“Because, everyone so far has had girls. Girls! I need to know if we’re going to have to buy more guns.”
“Really? You don’t think we have enough in the house already?”
I gripped her by the shoulders and shook her slightly. “Do you know what boys are like? Teenage boys are horny and they’ll do or say anything to get in a girl’s pants. I know. I was one of them.”
“So, you’re telling me that you lied to girls in high school so you could have sex?”
“Yes!” It was like she was just coming to the conclusion that all boys were scoundrels. “Do you understand now?”
“Well, if all boys are like that, then I’d rather have a girl.”
“What? What sense does that make?”
“Well, we only have to worry about her getting pregnant once. Imagine all the  girls we would have to worry about if we had a boy. He could be out there sowing his wild oats all over town. We could potentially have hundreds of grandchildren in one year. And then it’s not just the girls you have to worry about, but those dads. Imagine if one of those dads was one of your coworkers. What do you think Mark would say if our son knocked up his little girl?”
“Sinner would probably be giving her notes,” I said in irritation.
“Okay, then imagine it was Knight’s daughter. Kate’s due in just two months and they already know they’re having a girl. Do you really think that Knight wants our future son deflowering his daughter?”

I took a step back and shuddered at the thought of what Knight would do to me if we had a boy and he knocked up his little girl. I imagined car bombs, torture sessions, lengthy interrogations, and deadly scars from the knives he would use on me. “We should definitely have a girl.”
   
    
  

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

Rules of Submission (Fans of Football Series) by Leigh Lennon @4leighlennon @ejbookpromos


Title: Rules of Submission
Series: Fans of Football Series
Author: Leigh Lennon 
Genre: Contemporary/BDSM
Release Date: January 11, 2019
Cover Design: Najla Qamber
Candace
My whole life I’ve been told I was good for one thing. I was the family pawn, a pretty face to do their bidding.
Then I met him, and I dared to see a future where he could make me whole again.
But Lang has a secret – one that excites me. Now, I only want to play by his rules. But in his future, he sees things I can’t physically give him.
Will he leave me like everyone else does?
Lang
Power and control—I demand it. I never had it as a kid, but now my life is arranged and ordered as I like.
Then she comes into my life; young and inexperienced, and willing to surrender.
I’m ready to give up everything for my sweet Candy. But she gives me all her power. I hold it in my hands.

Candace
A smile spreads along his face, “You’re the perfect submissive, you know what to do and when to do it.” He drops a kiss on my nose. “But I’d like you to call me Daddy. But in the club I’m sir. You got it?”
This is a hard line for me. I don’t want to think of the two worthless daddy’s that have messed me up in my youth. As though he’s reading my mind, he starts, “I understand your hesitation, doll, but let me explain it to you this way. I’m the only Daddy in your life that matters. I’ll take away all the hurt and pain.”
My eyes widen at his words, the thought he’s put in it. “Fuck, Lang, when you put it like that, how can I say no?” I lean back, still fascinated by what’s in his hands.
“Now that we have that settled, my naughty girl, this is one of your club outfits. It’s a little more sophisticated than some of the other ones will be.” I look at the leather dress, wondering what the others will look like. “Because we’re having dinner upstairs, we’ll dress a little more discreet, for tonight only.”
With sleeves that come right below the elbows and a scoop neck, the dress does look more modest than most BDSM outfits I’d imagine would boast. It’s one hundred percent leather and will cling to me like a second skin. With strappy four-inch shoes in his hand, and black fishnet thigh-highs with a garter belt, I understand I’ll be going commando tonight.

Leigh Lennon is mother, veteran and a wife of a cancer survivor. Originally with a degree in education, she started writing as an outlet that has led to a deep passion. She lugs her computer with her as she crafts her next story. One could say she loves pretty nails, big earrings and spiky hair.

The Novel Approach by Heather Guimond #Release #ContemporaryRomance @ejbookpromos


Title: The Novel Approach
Author: Heather Guimond
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy

Release Date: January 8, 2019

She’s the Sweetheart of Sweet Romance. He’s romance’s reigning sex god. When the two accidentally collide at a book conference, sparks—and their luggage—fly.

Stacy:
When Gage Blackstone crashed into me, I had no idea who he was. If I’d known he was the man everyone called the king of one-handed reads, I would’ve run in the other direction as fast as I could. Every woman who has ever read a romance novel has at least one erotic book penned by him hidden in her underwear drawer. Never in a million years—not in my wildest dreams—would I ever have imagined waking up next to him. I’m hardly the one-night-stand type of girl he probably goes for but when he finds out what I write he’ll be the one running in the other direction.
Gage:
I was dead on my feet when I nearly toppled over the stranger standing in front of me, until I saw her wide green eyes and innocent beauty. She looked like the perfect angel, and from that point on all I could think about was messing up her perfect hair and kissing her senseless. When I found out she wrote sweet romance novels, I was even more intrigued. Could I unleash her wild side, while proving I was just an average guy with a talent for writing fantasies women dream about?
Who would have ever thought
the most novel approach to love would be sweet, spicy and steaming hot?
Heather Guimond is a Los Angeles native, a fact she’s abnormally proud of. When she’s not trying to write something that will make people laugh or rip their hearts out (or both!) she’s either reading or doing her best to crack the whip on her three home-schooled teenagers. She loves all things witty and wise-cracking, as well most varieties of smart-assery. Other favorites include French roast coffee in copious amounts and the dirtiest Dirty Martinis she can find. More than anything, she hopes she writes books that stick with the reader long after the pages have been read.

Policy of Truth by Scarlett Holloway @scarlettssong #NewRelease #MC #Creative Edge @MickeyCreative


Former Female Motorcycle Club Leader Revs Up All Gears In

Stunning New Release

 

“One of the first rules of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club.” The same goes for most, if not all, motorcycle clubs.

Hattiesburg, MS:  With shows like Sons of Anarchy, MC (Motorcycle Club) Romance has been a hot commodity in the entertainment world due to popular TV shows, Local Mississippi author, Scarlett Holloway took notice. Spinning her own MC Romance, Policy of Truth which releases February 22, 2019, Scarlett has one big  advantage over most undertaking the genre: she actually lived the MC Life.

The result of Holloway’s experiences, being introduced to the MC world by a close family member, and her eventual creation of her own an all-female WMC, is a riveting romantic thriller that delves deep into the club world. And, with this new series, realism is the key, but it’s also touched with romance and the intrigue of mystery. She also tackles subjects which many authors refuse to broach: domestic violence, drug abuse and even suicide. The kicker? Every character in the series is a member of her own street team or friends that have helped her in some way. Holloway does not hide the fact that she was once a victim of domestic violence and wants awareness to reach women out there, that there is help for them.

When asked what her experience in the MC world, Holloway says, “It was rewarding and punishing at the same time. Always on the road having things you had to do, away from your family, tired and sore. At the same time, you are with extended family, making new friends, helping with charities.”

Knowing the ins and outs of club bylaws, and life in general, she wanted to erase popular fiction about stereotypical bikers, and give readers something fresh, and new. In the media, motorcyclists are looked at to be abusive and sexist, and oftentimes, this is perceived to be “sexy.”

The truth and attitude definitely show through in Holloway’s writing and every reader would be wise to reach out and get familiar with Holloway’s work.  So, grab your favorite blanket, a cup of coffee (or wine) and kick back with her first book in the series, Policy of Truth, and let yourself get lured into the thrill of an all-female MC and the men who desire them.

 

 

Five years ago, Tamra “Durty” Simon’s life was falling apart, and she had a one-way ticket to six-feet under. And if it hadn’t been for the Death’s Angels Motorcycle Club swooping in, dusting her off, and transforming her into the badass biker she is today, she’d be taking a dirt nap. Now, she has everything she ever wanted—or so she thought.

 

Brett “Sting” Jackson is on a mission, and nothing is going to stop him—not even the sexy, enticing female biker who makes him hard with a single look. Too bad he’s lying and keeping secrets from her. But the alternative could get her killed, and that’s not a risk he’s willing to take.

 

It took Sting crashing into her life to make Durty realize there’s something else in this world she wants to ride as hard as her bike—too bad fate has other plans for them. When a rival club makes a move against the Angels, all hell breaks loose. Lives will be lost, secrets will be revealed, and lies will be exposed. Because in the motorcycle world, lies may get you hurt, but the truth can get you killed.

 

| Official Cover reveal on January 8 | Book Pre-sale available on January 22 |

| Official Release Date is February 22 |

 

Growing up on the Central Coast, Scarlett Holloway always dreamed of seeing her name on the cover of a book and on the New York Times Best Seller List. What better way than to bring part of her past onto the pages of a novel, as well as writing about issues that women face on a daily basis? When she is not in her bunny hole writing, she is a massage therapist, trying to help people through therapeutic healing. Scarlett is hopelessly devoted to her husband, who she lovingly calls her plot bunny, and is active in her teenage son’s life.
