The Voice-Book Blitz

During her abduction and assault, Audrey begins to hear a voice. She hopes she’s not going crazy, because after what she’s experienced, that’s the most logical explanation. However, as she begins to listen to the voice, Audrey realizes that someone may be telepathically trying to help her. Unfortunately, rescue isn’t all she needs. In order to leave behind the constant reminders, she flees to her Aunt Kate’s house in San Diego, and assumes a new identity. It works—until the eighteen-year-old twin boys who live next door threaten to break through the protective walls she’s worked so hard to build. Between Caleb going out of his way to befriend her and Justin avoiding her at all costs, Audrey doesn’t know if normalcy will ever find her again. But one thing is certain: When a familiar danger resurfaces, it’s the same voice that she turns to—a voice that is not only real, but a lot closer than she realizes. Gripping and tastefully told, The Voice is a story of healing, trust, and courage.

Beyond Shame 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Beyond Shame (Beyond, #1)  
5 of 5 stars false  
All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond–beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman’s daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.
The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal–men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four’s ruthless leader, and he’ll defend the O’Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.
Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they’re crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she’ll have to open herself to the gang, to a dangerous world of sex, lust and violence. A world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission


5 sexy erotic stars.

Wow, just wow. Sector 4 is my kind of place and the O'Kanes, are definitely my type of people.

What a lucky, lucky girl Noelle is, she gets kicked out of Eden, where everyone lives a strict conservative existence, straight into Sector 4 and into the protective arms of Jasper. Jasper (said in a sexy husky sigh) I adore him, I want to do deliciously bad things to him, and if you read this book you will probably want to too. I don't think I will ever (EVER) listen to the word "open" again without having a mini orgasm.

This is the story of Noelle and Jasper…

"Are you going to teach me about make-up sex?"
He shook his head, "I'm going to show you what it means to be mine, with nothing held back."


Whenever I think of how to describe Sector 4, I think where the wild things are and essentially this is a accurate statement. Gangs, alcohol, sex …compared to Eden the Sectors are gritty, raw, dangerous… but very real. Eden equals step-ford wives in my book, a false boring existence that would drive you crazy.
This has to be one of my favorite dystopian worlds I have come across. I kept on comparing it to Stacia Kane’s downside series, which is one of my favorite urban fantasy series, because of it’s grimy and dark feeling, I loved it! And to top it all off it's an erotic book, it about makes it perfect.
Be warned I am not exaggerating; this book is heavy on the steam, with some scenes that are not for the faint hearted, phew!!!
So many things about this story appealed to some wonderful place inside of me. However, the O'Kanes and their strange wonderful little "family" was probably my favorite. Bringing to my attention human natures need for family, and out of necessity and in the absence of a real one, these band of misfits have come together.
All held together by a very intriguing man, Dallas. Can't wait for his book!
Kit Rocha had done a great job introducing a new fascinating world, without bogging us down with too many details. It is obviously going to be a series, with a different couple in each book, which is just fine with me, I have been getting sick of all these trilogies with there cliff-hanger endings anyway. (No I lie I love you all, just write faster, please). She has also carved her own niche into the genre of erotic romance. It is in a world of its own, literally.
The only complaint I have is that I have to wait to read the stories of the other amazing characters that I met and fell in love with, Kit Rocha I am sending good luck writing vibes your way.
P.S. I did not know that this was an alter ego of Moira Rogers, who's books I also love, these are just dirtier and edgier, yum!

Obsidian (Lux #1

 4 of 5 stars false
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is


Forget ET, I want a LUXAN to crash land in my backyard.
What a fantastic beginning to a new series, and with a new paranormal edge. I don't believe I have read a book quiet like it.
The characters were great, Katy was realistic and I loved how she wasn't a simpering miss, crying because the hot guy gave her crap. She totally gave it back to him,then went home to cry into her pillow.( I mean come on who doesn't?)
Daemon, was a total jerk, but as the book went on it was great to see how torn he was in trying to keep away from Katy but still ending up on her doorstep. Love it!
On top of that, the story of the Luxan's, their powers, how they came to be on earth, the fact that there actually seems to be some sort of or real Men in Black, (DOD)and then the evil Arum. I didn't want this book to end.
It is a really great, different Young Adult Novel. Obsidian is a highly entertaining, really well written, easy to read story with likable characters and a good plotline. I will be continuing on with this series.

Platinum 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
1 of 5 stars false 
Althea Grant's Charleston gallery might be suffering from the bad economy, and her artistic aspirations have gone nowhere, but she's doing just fine, thank you. When bad-boy sculptor Steel rides up on his motorcycle looking to rent studio space, his infusion of cash is more than welcome. But his art is raw, visceral, sexual—and completely inappropriate for her pastel world of watercolor landscapes.
Steel, fascinated by Althea's rare albino coloring, sees in her the key to his next piece: a metal satyr designed for bondage games. Moving into her gallery basement is the first step; seducing the cool Southern belle into modeling for him is the second.
As Steel peels away her careful manners and tasteful outfits, Althea begins to realize her life isn't just fine at all—it's as pale and washed-out as the watercolor paintings she's failing to sell. Can she transform her life and accept her most secret desires?


****NetGalley provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Althea owns a failing art gallery, she is has a boring life, with a boring boyfriend. Steel comes to the gallery and once he sees Althea he wants her, to pose for him and in his bed. He rents space in the basement to work on his sculptures, they get close and Althea starts to see a new side to herself. Althea was stuck up, indecisive, rude and in denial a lot of the time. Steel was surprisingly bland, he was supposed to be this bad boy but he just came across as a bully at times and other times he faded into the background. I don't know what happened, the set up was so good and the beginning was hot, then nothing. There was no real story line, the couple just had a lot of sex. Some of the sex scenes were degrading and seemed borderline abusive. The rest of the sex scenes were boring and I found myself zoning out while reading them. I did not like this book.
