When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

Archer’s Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first three books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Book Heaux Rating: A Gazillion STARS!!!!

OK, so the first thing you need to do is… GO BUY THIS BOOK!

Just like every other book by the lovely and talented Mia Sheridan, Archer’s Voice blew me AWAY!  This book is unlike any other book you’ve read or will read. AND if you do end up reading a book similar to this in the future… That Author learned from Sensei Mia! This book was so good that I got pissed at my family when they tried to pull me away from it. I didn’t want to cook, clean, or sleep.. I just wanted to read more about Archer and Bree.

Archer is unlike any other book hero you’ve ever met. Which was good for me because I’ve just about had enough of the filthy rich, playboy, alpha-male.

Archer’s story is touching, Bree’s story is touching and together they make a new story that’s just…. Beautiful.

“I had his heart, and his thoughts, and him. And it was more than enough. In fact, it was everything.”

So beautiful that I tried to talk Mia into keeping Archer between her and I… I didn’t want to share him! LOL!

But, in the end we both agreed that there was enough of him to go around 😀

Not only is Archer hot!

“I had never seen at 8 pack, but there it was, right in front of me. I guessed that even slightly strange, silent hermits weren’t exempt from exceptional physiques.”

But he’s diabetic coma inducing sweet

“What I know, is that you walked through my gate that day and I lost my heart. But not because it could have been any girl-because it was you. I lost my heart to you. And Bree, in case you’re wondering. I don’t ever want it back.

And knows just how to love a woman.

I decided that I was more interested in focusing on the great privilege I’ve been given in having you at all.

Doesn’t he sound perfect to you ladies? Because he does to me. Have a seat on your throne Queen Mia! You deserve it!

Hi Monica. Thank you so much for taking the time out to do this interview with us. One Week Girlfriend pulled me out of a serious reading rut and now I’m a big time fan of yours!

Thank you so much Karleigh I appreciate you asking me these great questions! I love that OWG pulled you out of a reading rut. I’m flattered.

Ok, first we will start with a few serious questions, and then do some rapid fire.

Where did you get the idea for this series?

I saw a local newscast about a teacher who was arrested for having sex with her 17 year old male student. It started my brain churning about the differences teen boys who are victims of molestation and how they’re viewed versus teen girls. Then it sort of took off from there…

What is your favorite scene from each book?

One Week Girlfriend – the scene in the back of the car when Drew and Fable first kiss.

Second Chance Boyfriend – the scene where Fable’s out with Jen and she texts Drew to come see her. That moment when the girls are gushing about how hot he is and Fable’s smug knowing that he’s all hers…that was fun to write. Oh and the end of SCB too. I cried when I wrote those last lines. 

What was the hardest scene for you to write in each book?

Anything to do with Drew and Adele and what she did to him—those scenes just broke my heart. OWG was harder to write versus SCB only because he was dealing with a lot of terrible stuff in the first book and unable to talk about it to anyone. I can’t imagine what that would be like.

 What are you working on next?

I am…working on something right now I can’t discuss! But I hope I can say something soon. 

Rapid-fire questions. Don’t think, just answer.

 Celebrity crush: Chris Hemsworth

Chris-Hemsworth

Weirdest phobia: I hate touching rubber bands. They stink. And they feel weird.

I’m totally addicted to: Diet Coke and Bravo TV

s0458667_sc7imgres

Marriage is: Awesome

The best compliment I’ve been given was: You’re my favorite author! (that means so much to me I swear)

The most important lesson I’ve learned about love: It’s not easy but when you find it and make it work, it’s definitely worth it.

If I could pick four people to have dinner with, dead or alive, I’d choose: Um, my husband and three kids? I really like those people so…LOL.

Sex on the first date is: Sometimes a mistake and hey, sometimes not. 😉

The illegal thing I would do if I could get away with it: Jewelry thief

url

The quality I like most in a man: Sense of humor

The comfort food I crave most: chocolate cake

The best gift I’ve ever been given was: My daughter! She was born two days before my birthday.

Most Embarrassing moment: Tripped and fell in front of a bunch of people

I feel sexiest when: My husband kisses me

5 book boyfriends: I just…I can’t narrow it down! There are too many great book boyfriends out there! So I’ll say my own: Drew, Colin, Owen, Matt, Gage and Archer (whoops that’s six)

My favorite drink is: Malibu rum and pineapple juice

imgres-1dole_pineapple

If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be? Pretty much any romance heroine because she always gets her man.

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I’d want a golden lasso and wear those cuffs on my wrists. Basically, I’d want to be Wonder Woman.

How would you describe yourself in three words? Loyal, giving, funny.

And of course,

I’m a purse, book and shoe Heaux! (I have issues)

 Release February 4, 2014

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes a tempting new novel of secrets, lies, and redeeming passion.

Two million dollars secured Noah Crawford the most enticing woman he has ever known. Initiating Delaine Talbot into a sensuous world of pleasure took them both to the brink—again and again. But when Noah discovers why the beautiful innocent sold her body to the highest bidder, he’s faced with the hardest thing he ever had to do: Set her free.

Lanie can’t believe Noah would let her go. Doesn’t he know they share a bond deeper than sex—a connection too powerful to sever? Not even a treacherous enemy out to destroy Noah or the dark secret haunting the multibillionaire can keep them apart. But first Lanie has to show him that he belongs to her, even if it means risking everything for a love that can never be bought or sold.

A Million Guilty Pleasures is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

 Book Dame’s review 3.5 stars

I want to start off by saying I loved the first book in the series! I found it exciting and was absorbed by Noah and Lanie’s story. It was a steam hot read, and light and funny, too. So could you imagine how thrilled I was to get to read the second book, before releasing. This book didn’t capture my attention as the first. I still found it hot, but I wasn’t as enthralled as I was with the first. The best thing is this book doesn’t play games, things aren’t drawn out or forced. It just wasn’t as exciting as the first book. I didn’t get lured back in as much as I thought I would. So maybe my hopes were too high, and the weren’t going to live up to expectations. Either way, I still found scenes funny and others hot. I was happy to get the rest of their story. I think I would of been happier if it was all one book!

Blurb:

Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco had vastly different childhoods. Haven, a second-generation slave, grew up isolated in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, lived a life of privilege, never having to answer for anything he did.

Both now seventeen, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide, making them question everything they ever believed. Entangled in a web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface, they have more in common than anyone would think.

 Book Dame’s Review 4.5 stars

I have to start out by saying how real this book seemed, I felt like I was in the pages. I love how J.M. Darhower  wrote this novel. The only way I can find to describe it,  that comes to mind, is Haven and Carmine live in black in white alone, but coming together their worlds become brightly colored. Of course, not all the colors are merry and happy colors. No many are dark, and haunting. Carmine and Haven come from different worlds, and forced under the same roof, where they find solace in each other. Learning and striving for one another. Not having any idea what they are up against, what secrets can drown them or shatter them. Can Carmine let go of the one thing that changed his life? And who is Haven really? Can they find a way to be together? What means would you go to ensure your love’s future, in a world where loyalty and trust, are life and death questions? This book will wide your vision, crush you and have you pushed into a world you are afraid may really exist, Bewared this is a long book, and you will be reading until you can barely keep your eyes open. Once you start you won’t be able to put it down!

Rome (Marked Men #3)
Author: Jay Crownover
New Adult
Publication Date: January 7, 2014
Publisher: William Morrow an imprint of HarperCollins Publishing
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

Rome Cover-2

Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect. Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon. Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

Book Heaux Rating: 5 Stars!

I’ve been a huge fan of Jay Crownover from about the second page of “Rule.” There’s just something about her writing that makes you fall in love with every single character she introduces you to. The skepticism I felt before reading Jet reappeared when I started Rome. I was nervous, thinking that I might not love this book the way I loved the others. That she couldn’t possible recreate the same magic again. But just like she did for Rule and Jet… She hooked me, in the very first chapter. This book is a great continuation for anyone who loved her first two.Situations and emotions that were left unresolved are addressed in Rome.

And now let’s talk about Rome! As messed up as he was on the inside… He sure was hot!

He had short, dark hair cropped close to his head, and over the reflective lenses of the sunglasses there was no missing a jagged white scar that hooked through his eyebrow and down next to his eye. His face had a vivid intensity about it that just made him stupidly hot. Even without that body he was bound to make the opposite sex stupid. Panties across the nation would melt.

Are you drooling after reading that? Cuz I am!

And then of course we have Cora. HOLY HELL!!!!!! Those two are smoking hot! Sparks fly from the moment these two have their first interaction and I found myself on the edge of my seat..Waiting for Cora to continuously give him major tongue lashings.

We don’t need all that negative, Captain No-Fun. Why don’t you go spread your doom and gloom somewhere else?

Yes, Tiny Ms. Cora packed a mean punch. These two were just awesome together, both needing to be loved but in very different ways. You know what else is awesome about this book, you don’t have to suffer through ridiculous bouts of angst. Are there problems? Sure! But nothing that would cause me to shut my kindle and throw it on the floor for a few hours. This book is honestly just a beautiful story about love. And it’s awesome.. And I want more.. Soon! Please don’t keep us waiting too long Jay!

Description

They fell in love in high school and found their way back to one another despite the odds. But can first loves really be forever? For Reed Johnson, the dream was always football. But then Nolan Lennox took over his heart. Is he willing to give up his first love just to keep his true love? Or will he be too late? Reed and Nolan’s story continues in “Going Long,” sequel to “Waiting on the Sidelines.

 

Book Heaux Rating: 5 Stars

I was completely obsessed with Nolan and Reed after I read “Waiting on the Sidelines” and “Going Long” did everything necessary to feed my obsession.Things started off sweet and perfect! I was swooning, blushing and my heart was constantly pounding in my chest…. It was nice. LOL!

Then sh*t hit the fan! These two just couldn’t get it right. I wanted to scream at them! Shake them! and then push them into a broom closet and not allow them to leave until to talked to each toerh… Like REALLY talked. I mean seriously their communication skills sucked ass, but then again.. they were only 20 years old. The good thing about stress and angst in a book is that it makes you appreciate happiness that much more. And after all that Reed and Nolan had been through I REALLY APPRECIATED THEIR HAPPINESS!

I loved this series, I love Megan for recommending it and most of all I love Ginger Scott for writing it… And I need more books like this 🙂
