AUTHOR : L.A. Fiore
RELEASE DATE : February 9, 2016

 My first memory was of a slap, hard across the face: the sting on my cheek and the jarring of my bones as I slammed back into my bed. It was my dad who had hit me.

 I had been four.

 Most of my memories were much of the same and no one ever saw, no one ever fought to help, no one ever cared.

Then we moved.

My new neighbor cared, rescued the twelve-year-old I had been from a beating. Always thought I'd suffer the nightmare alone, I was wrong.

Mace Donati saved me that day in all the ways a person could be saved.

And his daughter, Mia, she became the friend I had always wanted, my conscience when my own faltered, the light that led me home when I had lost my way.

The girl who grew into the only woman I would ever love.

But when you realize you're more like your father than the good people who took you in and gave you a home, the only way to return their kindness is to let them go.

I let them go, got so far lost in the shadows I couldn't remember who I was anymore. Mia never gave up on me. She fought for me, kept the light on so I'd find my way back.

And when I did, life threw us a curveball. I had to hurt Mia in order to save her.

But when my past comes back to haunt me and I almost lose her, I'm ready to fight for her...fight to find a way back into her heart while keeping the demons from my past from finishing what they started.

I’ve never felt more alive than when I’m on my knees before my master.

Some would say I should be ashamed.

Others might say I’m filled with sin.

I say I’m just a woman with unstoppable determination, doing whatever it takes to secure her freedom before the opportunity fades forever.

Nobody knows about us. Not my father, my three mothers, or my seven brothers and sisters.

I was bred to be chaste and true, expected to find a respectable polygamous man and carry on the tradition of our faith.

But this man? The one who owns me with biting kisses and the crack of a leather paddle? He might be the only thing that can save me.

Submission equals freedom. It’s an equation I never thought possible until the day Dane Townsend showed up in my life.

I’m Bellamy Miller, and this is what happens when an angel loses her wings. 

At the end of Arrogant Master, I was totally surprised how Bellamy felt like the villain turned hero. I mean the story focuses with Jensen and Waverly and oh boy it was seriously hot. But the story of Bellamy and the intriguing Dane Townsend left me in total anticipation for this book. 

We all met Bellamy in the first book, she was proper and made us all believe she is the perfect daughter. This book tell us how Bellamy got her work and what really happens when she leaves the house all the sneaking and secrets are finally revealed.

Now, Dane Townsend. The Mysterious Billionare Dom. What appeals to me about him is that he is a straight forward no bullshit type of guy. He gets what he wants. But I think the very important part of this book is that when he start feeling something for Bellamy and I myself love this. The game changer girl. 

I was given ARC for this book and when i finished reading this book, I sent Winter a message. Told her I want more chapters. I hope you agree with me. Even though the book itself is great but I want more. I just feel I cant have this story end. I love Dane and Im really hoping for more scenes with him and Bellamy especially like a normal couple. 

But over all this is a great read and a hot one! 

:ARC given in exchange for an honest review:

  I give 4 Spanking and Bending Stars!!!!

AMAZON BESTSELLING AUTHOR Winter Renshaw recently celebrated her third 29th birthday. By day, she wrangles kids and dogs, and by night, she wrangles words.

Kira Dallaire is desperate.
Some challenges in life seem too hard to overcome. With little money, and even fewer options, the quick-witted and vibrant twenty-two-year-old needs to reinvent herself. Known for her generous heart and impulsive personality, she devises a survival plan, possibly her most outrageous idea yet.

Grayson Hawthorn is losing hope.

Some obstacles in life seem too hard to overcome. Betrayal definitely being one of them. With limited capital, and dwindling resources, he is attempting to resurrect his failing family vineyard, a self-imposed vow seemingly destined to fail. That is until a young woman enters his office with an outlandish, unexpected proposition impossible to refuse.

What begins as a temporary business arrangement, soon evolves into more as vivacious, spirited Kira challenges detached, arrogant Grayson to want more from life. To want more for himself. But as their wills clash and fiery passion ignites, they'll realize that sometimes the past creates walls too difficult to climb, and that lies and deception rarely precede a happily every after.

As Kira and Grayson race toward their destiny, they will discover that some vows are meant to be broken, and others are worth risking everything for . . . even your very own heart.
Every time I receive an ARC from Mia Sheridan, my mind is going crazy! Like I need some mental and emotional preparation when I start the book. 

For me, Mia Sheridan's book represent real life lessons. It is something one way or the other her readers can relate to. Her books also inspires me so much that I made teasers with my favorite quotes from the book.

I honestly didnt read the blurb of the book before I started it! I know right? But that is how confident I am that I will love this story, I also want the suspense factor on how the story will unfold.

Only Mia Sheridan can create this kind of story. Iam still on my Prison Break hangover so you can imagine that I am picturing Wentworth Miller throughout this book

I mean???? Look that this guy soooo perfect!!! Anyway, I dont want to spoil anything about the story plot and all but this book is about Puff the Magic Dragon and some plot devising little witch!!! Ba-na-nas!!!!

The setting is the beautiful Napa Valley, honestly I fell inlove with Napa Valley after seeing it in Parent Trap... Those rows and rows of grape trees and those stacks of barrels? I wish I can just sit all day stare at the trees and sip wine! That is life!

We will get to know the characters and their journey leading them both in each others arms, I think Mia is the one who sold me to the idea of fate! Regardless of where and what you are doing fate will always lead you to the person you meant to be with. And its always against all odds!

I adore Kira, her plot devising are just too brilliant! I mean we cant really expect everything to be always perfect right? But she is like the fire in this story! Fire of that Magic Dragon! Her beauty, Her stubbornness, Her spirit, Her passion really defined this story.

The Dragon aka Grayson... dont we all love this guy? His character is what I am always looking forward to read. One that is very hard and non emotion showing guy then chapter by chapter he just get uncovered! and dont we all love to be the one who make a guy fall? Seriously, if Grayson is right here infront of me.... I guess Il be begging to be his Kira.

Always a pleasure to read a Mia Sheridan's story. Its one of those times that you simply hug the book or your kindle once you've done reading it. It makes the story more real and more stamped in our hearts!

Other teasers I made:



Mia Sheridan is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author. Her passion is weaving true love stories about people destined to be together. Mia lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband. They have four children here on earth and one in heaven.

BOOK REVIEW : PAPER HEARTS by Claire Contreras

I lost her.

No, I didn't lose her. I threw her away.

She was my best friend.

I was never supposed to fall in love with her.

I was careless.

She was heartbroken.

I was doing fine until she came back into my life and reminded me what love was supposed to feel like.

When it's all said and done, she may not want to stay, but this time I'm going to do everything in my power to not let her go.

Let me tell you this after reading this book..... it will guarantee BIG FAT UGLY TEARS!!!!! ba-na-nas!!!! This book made me feel my heart is breaking! Like I dont want to ever stop reading!!! i wanted to know what happens but I dont want to turn the page because it means im a page closer to the end... and i dont want to stop reading Jensen and Mia!!!!!!!

First you need to read Torn Hearts to set the stage for your tears. Of course we know Jensen and Mia have long history and been separated during college years. then when Jensen came came he delivered the news to Mia he is to become a father. With all the devastation and betrayal Mia felt she cut all ties with Jensen. Then the need to be in Oliver and Elle's wedding ..... every emotion is raw and can be felt the tension is there! Gosh i love reading books (sigh) then Jensen finds out that Mia is moving to New York and be working there! Thus brings us to the heart achingly beautiful story of Paper Hearts.

For so long i have been reading romance novels but only this time i paused and really stopped reading and stared at nothing and thought that i wish i have someone i can talk to and love me and have the passion like Jensen does! i really love second chance stories!!! This is one of the books that you finished and read another one.... because honestly my feelings are still overwhelmed to start a new one.

I hope to anyone who would read this book will love it as much as i do, because Claire deserves our admiration. i just love her books and her words totally worth buying and reading!!!!



 Claire is a New York Times & USA Today Best Selling author, mother of two, wife of one, owner of three dogs, and breast cancer survivor.

She enjoys writing anything from children’s stories to erotic suspense, but her most notable work is a contemporary romance. When she’s not writing, she’s reading and dreaming about places she wants to visit.



Ivy Lee, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have finally found it working in her uncle’s tattoo shop in San Francisco. But all that changes when a robbery turns deadly, compelling her to pack up her things yet again.
When they need the best, they call him. That’s why Sebastian Riker is back in California, cleaning up the mess made after a tattoo shop owner with a penchant for blackmail got himself shot. But it’s impossible to get the answers he needs from a dead body, leaving him to look elsewhere. Namely, to the twenty-something-year-old niece who believes this was a random attack. Who needs to keep believing that until Sebastian finds what he’s searching for.
Ivy has one foot out of San Francisco when a chance encounter with a stranger stalls her departure. She’s always been drawn to intense men, so it’s no wonder that she now finds a reason to stay after all, quickly intoxicated by his dark smile, his intimidating strength, and his quiet control. That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter was no accident—and that their attraction could be her undoing.

From Dublin to San Francisco, Ivy  is one person I envy her constant traveling makes me wanna be like her. One night in the streets of San Francisco Ivy, bought dinner for her Uncle Ned and returned to his tatoo shop with a one dead client and his uncle being tortured eventually being murdered. 

From Vacation to Assignment, Sebastian is being called back from his vacation for an assignment with a retrieval and possible elimination operation. I love theses kind of character, i love how authors bring us to their minds and how careful and meticulous these people are being researched.

I a a very huge fan of Ten Tiny Breaths series but this series made me a certified KA Tucker fanatic! its suspense with a romance and equally hot and unique male leads! The moment I finished reading the book i message k.a. and told her how i felt about the book. She told me that she wasnt sure if readers will like Sebastian knowing he is a killer. But i assured her that the character was well written to be loved by her readers! i mean i know stalking in shadows is creepy but Sebastian worked it like this super hot spy.

This is a must read book and meant to be discussed among your book girlfriends!!!!
