Mid Life Love Box Set - Whitney Gracia Williams


Title: Mid Life Love Boxed Set
Author: Whitney G.
 Publication Date: January 29, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Buy it today: Amazon


**BOOK 1: Mid Life Love 

If you'd asked me what love was two years ago, I probably would've said, 'It's this amazing feeling that obsesses and possesses you; it's what me and my husband currently have.' If you ask me that same question today, I'll say, 'Please get the hell out of my face.’ 

Claire Gracen's life is picture perfect. Her career as a marketing director is on the brink of being legendary, and her marriage to her high school sweetheart has never been stronger. No, wait. It has. It used to be amazing and fulfilling, but one day Claire realizes that she's been living a lie and her best friend and husband have committed the ultimate betrayal. 

Broken and depressed, Claire is in need of something new—new city, new job, new friends. 

When she happens to attract the interest of the sexiest man she's ever met, a man significantly younger than her, she immediately turns him down—only to later discover that this man is Jonathan Statham, self-made billionaire and CEO of Statham Industries. Her boss. 

Jonathan Statham is unlike any man she's met before. He's used to getting whatever he wants—whenever he wants, and he isn't about to take no for an answer. 

Sexy, unpredictable, and charmingly clever, Mid Life Love is a story that will captivate you, entertain you, and force you to fall deeply in love with the characters. 

**BOOK 2: Mid Life Love: At Last 

If you ask me if Jonathan Statham makes me happy, I’ll say ‘Absolutely. He’s the man of my dreams and I can’t wait to marry him.’ If you ask me why my ex-husband Ryan is currently one inch away from me—staring into my eyes and pressing his hand against my cheek, I’ll say, ‘I have no fucking idea…’ 

Claire Gracen finally has the life she’s always wanted: A career she loves, a man who’s willing to do any and everything for her, and friends that show her the true meaning of the word ‘friendship.’ 

As she and Jonathan prepare to make the ultimate commitment to one another and plan the wedding of her dreams, she quickly realizes that the hurtful past she left behind in Pittsburgh is a lot closer than she thought. 

Sexy, unpredictable, and as charmingly clever as Mid Life Love, ‘At Last’ will captivate you from the first page and never let you go.

Add it to Goodreads

Fuck me recklessly
Kiss me harder.
Take me again and again…
He and I met under a cloud of clich├ęs:
Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy fucks girl.
Our story was supposed to end right after the orgasms, right after we went our separate ways.
But then we saw each other again…
And neither of us could walk away.
Our rules were simple.
Our passion was scandalous.
Our hearts were supposed to be safe…
But when you find something so all-consuming—something so intoxicating and inescapable, you’ll risk everything you've ever had, even if you’re destined to crash and burn.
This is us.
This is our messed up love.
This is turbulence.

Eleven Weeks (Crazy in Love #2) by Lauren K. McKellar - Blog Tour &Review




Seven shots

Five siblings

Two boys

One heartbeat …


Stacey is good at pretending.

She pretends that the boy she's in love with doesn't exist.

She pretends that she's happy to live and die in this small town.

She pretends that her life is carefree while her best friend's life crumbles before her very eyes.

But Stacey's got a secret ...

And it's going to ruin everything,

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: January 2015.

After the emotional turmoil and devastation of The Problem With Crazy I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from Eleven Weeks, this was very much a blind beta read for me, I was assured this was a much lighter companion of sorts to the first book in the series, but what I wasn't prepared for was the depth of emotion that McKellar draws from a moment.

Am I scaring you? Are you grabbing for the wine and tissues? Hold on a second because this isn't that kind of book, where TPWC was very much Kate's story, this is clearly Stacey's, the fun filled, joyous, ready to party best friend. I thought no one could compare to Kate but boy was I wrong, the immediate connection I felt to Stacey caught me off guard, invested? Completely, utterly and within the first sentence. Stacey has never quite felt enough, never had a clear direction of what she wants and where she wants to go, she's never had the familial support that would reinforce her worth, would tell her she's capable of greatness, capable of anything she wants.

While Stacey stole my heart from the very first page, Michael held my attention, his easy charm and straight forward Aussie sensibilities was simultaneously endearing and sexy. A deviation from the stereotype, Michael isn't bad boy rocker, he's not waiting for the right girl to come along to turn him good, Michael is inherently good, throw in talent and a music star in the making and he's both the kind of guy you want to take home to meet mum and dad and the one you want to sneak out with in the middle of the night.

Once again McKellar has bravely taken her stories far away from the stereotype, she's dared to write something so effortless in it's sheer beauty that I was immediately drawn into her world, connecting deeply with her characters, leaving me desperately wanting more.

KICK (Savage Saints #1) by Carmen Jenner - Blog Tour & Review

RELEASE DATE: January 26th, 2015


When I was ten, my father indoctrinated me into the family. A brotherhood who would fight, protect, and give their lives for one another. A club whose ties ran thicker than blood, murkier than the dirt and grime that tainted my soul. Stronger than the bonds that connected me to my own family.
A band of brothers, where loyalty was kept and paid in a currency of blood.

When I was twenty seven, I betrayed that brotherhood. I’ve spent every day since running, avoiding paying back that debt.

My name is Daniel Johnson. I have betrayed everyone I ever loved.

And I’ll betray her too.

This is my story—if you’re screwed up enough to want to read it.

Warning: KICK contains graphic violence, profanity, drug use, and explicit sexual situations of a taboo nature. Intended for an 18+ audience only. Not intended for pussies.

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: January 2015.

 MC books have never been my preferred genre, I read to escape my reality, to live in someone else’s if only for a few hours, the idea of all that gritty, dark, blood lust has never appealed to me, until now.

KICK was my first foray into the world of MC novels, and it was everything I expected and so much more at the same time. Kick is not a romance, nor is it the tale of a pseudo bad boy waiting for the right girl to turn him good, KICK is dark, so very dark that at times I struggled for breath, so raw and real, that my heart ached, so desolate that I scrambled to find my way back from the edge.

Daniel (Kick) has grown up an MC brat, indoctrinated in the ways of the brotherhood, where loyalty reigns supreme, sacrifice is expected, and women are disposable, there to fulfil a need. The only woman he ever wanted was taken from him, and what remains is a man with nothing left to lose and a price on his head.

Jenner has dared to take this story somewhere other than the stereotype of drugs, women and criminal activity. The sense of helplessness I felt, the sheer mind numbing agony of this fast paced roller coaster ride that is Daniel’s life.

There is so much more to this story then just of a biker, as Carmen weaves a story of loss, betrayal, pain and hurt, we learn of Lauren and Daniel’s past and Indie’s present I often found myself questioning how can you find even a slither of light when the darkness surrounds you, how do you keep going when the world is desperate to drag you down?

KICK is at times brutal, graphic and a dark, desolate ride into the seedy underbelly of motorcycle gangs. For a reader like me it was often confronting, leaving me feeling sick, simultaneously wanting to put it down and walk away, and desperately wanting to read more, know more, to feel everything even if at times it made me feel uncomfortable.

But this isn’t only a story of pain; it’s a story of survival, of hope, of redemption, of strength, of overcoming even the worst things imaginable. I have been a long time fan of Carmen Jenner, her ability to wrench every raw emotion from me in one moment and then have me laughing in the next, but Kick with it's dark depravity, it's raw unquestioning emotional pull, has cemented herself as an author to not only watch but to admire. This book, Jenner’s words have taken an immeasurable toll on my battered and bruised heart, but most importantly, it left me believing that even in the darkest moments there’s light.

I take a deep shuddering breath, close my eyes and stretch my hand towards him. His touch is
gentle this time, far more gentle than I’d ever thought someone with so much uncontained
violence to him could be.
“Spread your fingers,” he commands. I do, and he lifts the roll of tape, presses the edge to my
skin and begins winding it over my knuckles. I close my eyes. The strident sound of it stretching
out from the roll makes me want to flee. It makes me want to run as far from his touch—from
any man’s touch—as I can possibly get.
The feel of the tape against my flesh, binding, holding, is so much worse. I tug on my hand, but
he won’t let go. My heart rate skyrockets, and sweat beads erupt over my brow and upper lip. I’m
in that room again, struggling, screaming, trying to fight them off, and failing.
Biker knows it, too. His dark eyes challenge, they dare me to run, but they also implore me to
stay. It’s ironic that the only thing keeping me here, keeping me grounded, is the man who
abducted me.
He holds my gaze. I don’t know exactly what is hidden in his dark blue one, but it suffocates the
panic within me, douses it like water flooding flames. He bends his head to my hand. Taking the
paper tape in his mouth, he rips it with his teeth.
I still. I soften. His gaze doesn’t leave mine, not even once. Not even when he starts in on my
wrist, gently biting through each piece of tape before pressing it down with his rough hands. I’m
mesmerised by his mouth, the piercing, and the soft, full lips. The light catches a silver chain
around his neck, something I’ve never noticed before—but then I try not to make a habit of
staring too closely at him. Not now, though. Now I watch every twitch, every blink, every intake
of breath, and every inch that is swallowed up by his mouth moving closer to my flesh.

Now Leaving Sugartown (Sugartown #4) by Carmen Jenner - COVER REVEAL

Title: Now Leaving Sugartown
Series: Sugartown #4
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Cover It! Designs
Release Date: March 2, 2015


Pepper Ryan grew up the troublesome, spoiled child of a rock god. With her less-than-stellar parentage, and the bipolar disorder that has plagued her existence, to say this little firecracker is a handful would be the understatement of the century.
Sammy Belle spent more than half his life saving Pepper. He’d been her strength, her sanity, and the protective brotherly figure she never wanted to have.
They were never meant to be together.
They gave in anyway.
And just when Sammy thought he had everything he wanted, Pepper ran.
Now twenty-three, Pepper returns to Sugartown, a failed tattoo artist with one too many screws loose who’s down on her luck, wielding an ice cream van as beaten up as her heart.
Sugartown’s most coveted bachelor has always been content with the quiet life he leads until Pepper, the hellion from his past, returns to test his strength, his patience, and perhaps even his sanity. But two can play at that game, and Pepper is about to learn that Sam can give as good as he gets.
Can this good country boy survive Pepper’s cruel city world, or will the whole thing be put down to a bout of temporary insanity?
One thing is for certain:
He’s crazy about her.
She’s just crazy.
Warning: Intended for an 18+ audience. Contains sexual content, oodles of profanity, a firefighter so hot you may need a very cold shower, and one pink-haired crazy Harajuku girl.

I stare at Sammy for entirely too long. He absentmindedly brushes a hand over his chin, an attempt to remove crumbs that aren’t there. Because why the hell else would I be staring at him like I wanted to give birth to his giant, Viking children?
“You’re a lollipop man and you work in a nursing home?”
“Yeah.” He mutters around a mouth full of bread.
“You’re like mother fucking Teresa.”
“Don’t start. Jake gives me enough shit over this stuff.”
Jake lets out a chuckle that has me impaling him with a single look. “You haven’t even heard the best part yet.”
“There’s more? What, did he create the fucking universe?”
“Sam’s a volunteer firefighter.”
I think I just came a little.
“Was, a volunteer firefighter. Now they pay me for it. And I don’t think you can claim sainthood from an occupation.”
“Dude. See that? That glazed over look in her eyes right there? This is why you need to be telling bitches that shit when we go out to pick up. Look at her, right now she’s imagining sliding down your fireman’s pole. I’m telling ya, you gotta use that shit, man. It’s fucking gravy, baby.” He laughs again, and then says, “Or baby gravy, depending on which way you look at it.”
“Shut the fuck up.” Sammy says.
Something occurs to me just then. Sam is a fireman. Okay just for a second, put aside the fact that you’re imagining those rock hard abs all greased up and covered in soot, and ash, and splashed all over the month of January, and think about this. Sam is a fireman. Fireman S—“Holy shit!” I exclaim, so loud that every pair of eyes in the room turn to look at me “You’re fireman Sam! We used to watch that show?” I implore, and then, because I don’t feel I’ve made enough of an arse of myself I sing the theme song, finishing with a pointed, “You are the hero next door!”
Jake’s loud guffaw fills the room. “Fireman Sam. Dude that’s fucking gold!”

Permanent Bliss (Bliss #) by BJ Harvey - Blog Tour & Review


Makenna Lewis never thought she would be the one walking down the aisle to marry her superhero. But then again, she hadn't expected Daniel Winters to crash into her life and tilt her world off its axis two years earlier. As they celebrate their last days of singledom, they find themselves battling over the guest list, managing the in-laws, and dealing with last minute disasters that threaten to disrupt their special day.

In true Bliss fashion, we’ll see freak-outs, awkward situations, hilarity, drama, and cringe-worthy moments as Mac and Daniel prepare for one of the most important days of their lives. Join the Bliss gang as they watch two of their own walk down the aisle and conclude their happily ever after.

This companion novella follows on from the end of True Bliss and will lead into Finding Bliss – Noah ‘Walking Dildo’ Taylor’s story.

***Disclaimer – Hot sex, drunken texts, horny phone calls, and a wedding anticipated by all but one. And, of course, a few freak outs along the way (but NOT the kind you’re used to) because that’s how Mac rolls ***



Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: August 2014.

I was lucky enough to receive an arc of Permanent Bliss in exchange for an honest review. If I wasn't already an avid fan of Daniel "Superman" Winters Permanent Bliss would of converted me...

I loved how much Makenna has grown, her days of level ten freak outs might not be over but they are definitely less frequent. This wedding has been a long time coming, Makenna is ready to walk down the aisle and into her forever with Daniel, the wedding may be only a formality for this family but what girl doesn't dream about their perfect day.

Permanent Bliss is the perfect novella to accompany the Bliss series, short, sexy, funny, and full of heart I couldn't put it down, and didn't want it to end. As with every book in this series, BJ Harvey manages to convey a story full of emotion, these characters are real, I was rooting for them, for not only Makenna and Daniel, but for three men who had played such a big part in her life before Superman walked into it, and Harvey handled a tribute to their past relationship with heart and conviction, I adored this novella, and I can't wait to continue this series in future books.


I’m riveted and distracted as he walks around to the driver’s window and hands him the money to pay my fare before he walks back around and opens my door. Clutching my bag of dirty fun in one hand and my purse in the other, I look up at him in awe as he stands there with his hand out and a perceptive grin.

“C’mon, gorgeous. Time to come inside.”

“Thought that was your job,” I say, forgetting that I’m sitting inside the cab and within earshot of the driver.
Daniel laughs before grabbing my hand and helping me to my very shaky feet, causing me to reach out and grab his biceps. “Shit,” I mutter under my breath as I’m gently moved sideways so that he can shut the car door behind me.
With a double tap on the roof of the cab, he bends slightly before scooping me up into his arms, one wrapped around my shoulders and the other underneath my knees. “Whoa, Superman. Pulling out all the stops?” I lean forward so that my mouth is right by his ear. “You do know I’m a sure thing tonight, right?”


The books are all standalones that can be read separately in their own right but feature common characters throughout the books.

There are currently four books planned for the series but I have tentative ideas for one more novel and one novella.

Out of the three females in the three books so far, there has been a brunette, a red head and a blonde – I wonder what Noah’s female of choice will have ;)

Each of those females have a favorite drink of choice; Mac likes tequila, Kate likes her win, Sam has a close relationship with Vodka (and couches)

Ben & Jerry’s ice cream features in every book (and I only tasted Ben & Jerrys’ for the first time in March this year!) Mac and Kate like Chunky Monkey, Sam likes Karamel Sutra.

Temporary Bliss (Bliss#1) is the only book that features all of the main characters (Sam first appears in True Bliss (Bliss #2).

All four planned books in the Bliss series will soon be published in portuguese in Brazilian book stores

Every book has songs as chapter titles

Permanent Bliss (Bliss #3.5) was written to give Mac and Daniel fans their happy ‘forever’ after for the couple that started it all. It also features all of the characters from the first three books and one scene you would never expect to happen ;)


#3.5 Permanent Bliss








#1 Temporary Bliss





*Disclaimer - There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have you husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries*

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn’t want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn't).

That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three 'friends with benefits'.

They know the score, they know they're not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys.

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.

Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she’s willing to give, she falters.

What do you do when something that you’ve known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?

If you’re Mac, you run and hide.

But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?


#2 True Bliss





She watched her best friend find her superhero.

Now she wants her turn.

Despite a run of bad dates with Mr. Wrong, Mr. Boring, Mr. Bad Breath, Mr. Grabby Hands, and even Mr. Say I Love You After One Date To Get Into Your Pants, Kate McGuinness is more determined than ever to find the one.

Having tried everything else, she turns to the internet in a last ditch attempt to find her elusive prince.

But Kate doesn't want an everyday, run of the mill love.

She wants the kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat. The kind of love that makes you dance in the rain and bottle up the sunset. The once in a lifetime kind of love that authors write about, musicians sing about, and lovers dream about.

Could a certain police officer in training, who has come to her rescue in the past, be the one to swoop in and save her heart?

What if the love Kate desperately seeks has been in front of her the whole time?
She just needs to open her eyes to see it...

*Disclaimer: This book contains a hot as hell stripper with a penchant for public sex and exhibitionism who may or may not succeed in bringing out the inner firecracker in all of us. Oh, and don't forget the batteries.*


#3 Blissful Surrender






This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her against.

**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided when the one woman strong enough to disarm him threatens his resolve not to let his past dictate his future.**


COMING SOON (Winter 2014/15)

#4 Finding Bliss

They call me the walking dildo.

Gratifying? Yes.

Something to be proud of? Certainly.

What I wish to be known for? Absolutely not!

Watching my best friend and my old fuck buddy walk down the aisle blissfully happy has just reiterated the fact that I’m thirty and perpetually single.

I thought I’d found someone I wanted to spend my life with but sometimes you have to face facts and realize it’s never gonna happen.

Funny how it just takes one person to make you finally see sense.

My name is Dr Noah Taylor and this is the year my life changed for the better.

*Disclaimer – This book features hot sex, filthy language, misuse of on-call rooms and the overdue redemption of the fake orgasm*

Like the other books in the Bliss series, this book can be read as a stand alone. There are common characters in the books but it is not necessary to read the first two books in the series to read this one.

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: May 2014.

When BJ Harvey said Blissful Surrender was HOT she wasn't lying! Although this book does form part of the Bliss series, with characters featured in previous books Blissful Surrender can be read as a stand alone.

In BS we meet Samantha Richards, strong, smart, sassy and a police officer. She's comfortable in her life, loving her job, surrounded by great friends and enjoys a casual no strings attached relationship with Tanner.
We also get to reconnect with our favourite Dom Sean Miller - charming, charismatic and sexy as all get out. Ten years ago these two had it made, they were the loves of each other's lives, their relationship was rock solid, until it wasn't, and when someone who should of had Sam's best interests at heart persuaded her that Sean was too domineering and wrong for her she listened, mixed communications followed and Samantha walked away from the first person to ever truly get her.

Ten years later, Samantha and Sean reconnect but are they strong enough to let go of the past and take another chance on each other?

Sean possesses all the qualities we like to see in a Dominant, but for me the true hero of this story is Sam. While she is definitely submissive in the bedroom, out if it she is strong, sassy, confident and the kind of girl you'd love to be friends with. The sex is steamy as hell, and if you enjoy your stories a little more erotic this is definitely one for you. I'd definitely recommend having plenty of batteries or a willing partner on hand after reading this. I can't recommend this series enough, grab a glass of wine, put your feet up and settle in for a fantastic read.
