Dimitri King is a killer โ€ฆ and an addict. Born into one of the most ruthless motorcycle clubs that ever ran the streets of St Louis, the only life he has ever known is destroying him from the inside out. A lifetime of trauma, bad decisions, and heinous violence has left him on the brink of complete disaster, but one mission will change everything.

Annalise Hale, daughter of Senator Ronald Hale, is the prima ballerina of the St. Louis Ballet. The picture-perfect trophy from afar, her life is a delicate facade that hides unspeakable pain.

All she wanted was to escape.

She never dreamed of this.

Blameless in her fatherโ€™s crimes, she is caught up like an exquisite pawn when the Sinners take her. Face-to-face with Dimitri King, like two sides of the same broken mirror, they have scars so deep, pain is the only feeling they know.

A match made in heaven but forged in hell, will they find their wounds fit together to create something beautiful or will the sins of their pasts be too great to overcome?

I’m just a girl who likes to daydream and sometimes I write them down to share. Growing up, the literary world was my safe haven. A wonderful place of fantasy beyond the bounds of reality. As an adult, I put that behind me to practice medicine. My husband and I owned our own practice, had two children, and lived a somewhat normal life. Fate had other plans. In the span of a year, we sold our practice, bought a 96 acre farm in the hills of West Virginia, and adopted 3 of our patients (ages 1,3, and4). It has been an adventure of ups and downs and learning to laugh at ourselves. Yet, somewhere in the midst of kids, chickens, and toothpaste covered dogs, I began to write again. My late night / early morning escape lets me dream beyond all limits. I hope that you will enjoy the journey of the stories as much as I have writing them.

Author: Lynne Leslie

Series: Skullz Ink Series

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Dates: August 14th and August 28th




I had my entire life in my hands until fate laughed in my face and tore it away.

I let myself go to a dark place that consumes me and threatens to never let me go.

Until I hit rock bottom.

With nothing left to lose, I claw my way into the light with the help of friends, family, and soothed by the sweet, sweet buzzing of Foxโ€™s needles inking my skin.

My name is Allie Stevens and this is how I came to be the new me.

*Being Allie is book one in the Allie & Fox duet. It ends on a cliffhanger and their story will be resolved in book two, Loving Fox.

Life can be a hardcore bitch sometimes. I thought I had mine all planned outโ€”until that bitch laughed in my face.

Some say life is predestined, while others say itโ€™s all up to fate. Well, if this is what they have in store for my life, then I say fuck them both.

Losing it all wasnโ€™t in my plans, but it was in someone elseโ€™s. It wasnโ€™t supposed to end like thisโ€”but it did.

It all started the moment Liam came into the bar looking for a hook-up. I didn’t know him, had never seen him around, but I was drawn to him. There was something about him that grabbed me and wouldnโ€™t let go. Liam had this animal magnetism that made it extremely hard to say no. I should know, I did it, repeatedly. I watched him take home a different woman every night. Then he touched me. With one seemingly innocent touch of his fingers against my skin, I was his. I was never supposed to fall in love with himโ€”but he made it irresistible. I wasn’t supposed to be able to survive after losing him eitherโ€”but eventually I did.

This is the beginning and the end of our tale.

Just a garden variety romance yet so much more.

This is a story about what happens at the start and after the end.

This is the tale of me becoming the new me.




Two years ago I fell in love with a woman that wasnโ€™t mine to fall in love with.

With no other choice, I stood by watching as she lost everything, until all that was left was a shell of her former self.

And I let her drag me down into the darkness with her.

It’s hard to compete with a ghost, but Iโ€™m determined for her to see me as more than the friend Iโ€™ve been.

So, I fight the only way I know howโ€”down, dirty, and with the buzz of my tattoo needle.

My name is Fox Beckett and this is how I won Allieโ€™s love.

Loving Fox is the conclusion of the Allie & Fox Duet.

Review: Jackson (Eternity Springs The McBrides of Texas Book One) by Emily March, #ContemporaryRomance

Emily March

Genre: #ContemporaryRomance
My Rating: 3.75
Cover: 5

Publication: June 25th 2019
Read: June 25th 2019 *ARC provided by publisher via NetGalley
POV: Third-person alternating perspectives
Find on Goodreads:


From New York Times bestselling author Emily March comes Jackson, the newest novel in the critically acclaimed Eternity Springs series. 

Sometimes it takes a new beginning 
Caroline Carruthers thinks she buried her dreams along with the love of her life…until a stranger named Celeste dares her to chase a dream all on her own. Moving to Redemption, Texas, is chapter one in Caroline’s new life story. Opening a bookstore is the next. Finding love is the last thing on her mind as she settles into this new place called home. But when she meets a handsome, soulful man who’s also starting over, all bets are off.

to reach a happily-ever-afterย 
Jackson McBride came to Redemption looking only to find himself, not someone to love. Ever since his marriage ended, he’s been bitter. Sure, he used to believe in love–he even has the old song lyrics to prove it–but the Jackson of today is all business. That is, until a beautiful young widow who’s moved to town inspires a change of heart. Could it be that the myth of Redemption’s healing magic is true…and Jackson and Caroline can find a second chance at a happy ending after all?

My Review: 3.75 Stars

I wanted to love this book. I enjoyed it but it didn’t have my heart pumping.ย 
Caroline is currently married at the beginning of the story. I won’t go into specifics on that. I thought she was a lovely character and deserved to be happy. Unfortunately, life happens and well…things become complicated… and very sad.

Jackson has his own demons in the way of cruel ex-wife. She takes something from him he cannot bare to lose. And so because of that, Jackson has sworn off women. When he and his two cousins inherit land, they decide to turn it into a high-end B&B. I enjoyed the way the author described the old buildings on the property. I could really see everything she was trying to write about. This particular aspects of the book were one of my favorites.

Long story short, Caroline and Jackson meet when she comes to town to write a travel piece about the land Jackson now owns. They definitely have a connection, but what that connection was, neither recognized. Many months later, Caroline moves to town and opens a book store. She and Jackson meet again and become good friends. I want to say that their relationship was a slow burn but that just wasn’t the case for me. The pace of the book as well as the development of Jackson and Caroline’s relationship was slow. Very. I admit I was able to put this book down too many times. 

I really don’t want to spoil anything for you in the way of details. I do want you to know that I didn’t hate this book. As I said earlier in my review, I enjoyed it, as an overall read. I think what bothered me the most was that I couldn’t feel a connection between the H/h. As friends, I thought they were believable and genuine. But when the line was crossed to an intimate relationship, I just wasn’t feeling it.

There is definitely a happy ending. So be assured about that. The epilogue was another favorite part of the book for me.

This was my first read by this author. Would I like to read more from her? I would definitely like to do that. Just because I wasn’t in love with this one book doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love another. I am a very openminded reader. I enjoy all tropes of romance and don’t make set-in-stone final opinions on just one, or even two books. So yes, I’ll absolutely give this author another chance to woo me, lol.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Release Blitz: Wreck My World by Victoria Ashley, #ContemporaryRomance is Available Now!



Title: Wreck My World
Author: Victoria Ashley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2019
โ€œThe feeling I
have in this very moment, after not seeing her for so long, will haunt me
forever, reminding me why I left to begin with.โ€
For as long as I can remember, Easton Crews has been
off-limits. As much as it kills me, thatโ€™s never going to change.
After his little disappearing act three years ago, then
suddenly showing up out of nowhere, I shouldn’t want anything to do with
It doesnโ€™t matter how beautiful he still is. Or how close we
once were. It shouldnโ€™t matter that my entire body lights on fire with need
whenever he gets close.
He chose the worst possible time to leave without so much as
a goodbye.
However, just like the first day he walked into our home,
I’m drawn to him, needing him near me just as badly as I need air to breathe,
and I can’t stand it.
I want to hate him. I know I should hate him. But
hating him is the last thing he’ll let me do.
I push, he pulls harder, until I’m completely wrapped up in
him, my mind lost in the one person who is forbiddenโ€”the one person Iโ€™ve always
loved, even when he belonged to someone else.
Easton was never meant to be mine. It took me years to come
to terms with that and now that I finally have, he’s here, right in front of
me, more irresistible than ever.
The part I fear the most about thatโ€”heโ€™s the one person
capable of completely wrecking my world.
โ€œIโ€™m not leaving
until you take all of your hate out on me. Let me feel it. All of it. Every
dirty look. Every nasty word. I will have it all before I leave. Stop hiding
from me.โ€

She stops and turns around when she hears my boots crunching
in the gravel behind her. The cold look in her eyes is
almost enough to freeze my damn heart. โ€œDonโ€™t you dare follow me, Easton.
Turn back around and go inside.โ€ With pained eyes, she points at the building
and screams. โ€œGO!โ€
After yelling at me, she immediately turns back around and
starts walking again to get away from me.
Ignoring her demand, I stalk toward her, wrapping my arm
around her waist right as she attempts to straddle her motorcycle.
โ€œYouโ€™re not driving home,โ€ I say, while squeezing her waist
and pulling her against me. โ€œI get that you want fast right now. That you need
a rush to clear your head. Trust me, I know you. Iโ€™m the one that got you
addicted, but youโ€™ve had too much to drink.โ€
โ€œYou donโ€™t need to worry about what I do,โ€ she growls out in
anger, before elbowing me in the stomach in an effort to get away. โ€œDammit! Let
me go. I need to leave. I canโ€™t be here.โ€
Sheโ€™s still trying to fight me, so I carefully lower her to
the gravel and trap her under my body, pinning one of her legs underneath mine.
โ€œGive me your keys,โ€ I growl, an inch away from her lips. โ€œDonโ€™t make me force
them out of your hand. I can pin you under my body all night if I fucking have
to, Kota.โ€
โ€œYeah, I donโ€™t think my brother would like that much.โ€ She
attempts to buck me off with her hips, but it does nothing.
I smirk down at her and push my hips closer against her
body. โ€œFight me all you want. Iโ€™ll win.โ€
โ€œFuck you, Easton!โ€ Breathing heavily, she lays still and
fights to control her breathing from below me. After a few seconds, her eyes
meet mine, and she grins. โ€œFetch.โ€ She tosses her keys across the parking lot
and then pushes my chest, speaking against my lips. โ€œNow. Get. Off.โ€
I release a hard breath and take a moment to analyze her
face. It feels like forever since Iโ€™ve seen it.
Her big, gray eyes are framed by long lashes and her dainty,
freckled nose is now pierced and flaring out in anger.
Catching me off guard, she pushes her way out from under me
and closes her eyes as she runs her hands over her face and lays back. โ€œJust
leave me be. I donโ€™t want to be anywhere near you. Iโ€™ll have Hope take me
โ€œYou really mean that?โ€ I question with a tight jaw. โ€œYou
still hate me after three damn years?โ€
โ€œHow can I not?โ€ she bites out, before jumping to her feet,
ignoring my hand as I reach it out to help her. โ€œYou tore my heart out. Now get
out of my way.โ€
I bite my lip, holding in my anger as she pushes past me and
disappears inside.
Iโ€™m still standing out here with my hands in my hair when
she walks back out a few minutes later following Hope to her old, beat-up
My heart pounds relentlessly as I watch them hop inside and
drive away.
You tore my heart out.
Those five words hurt like hell. Sheโ€™s always been good at
making me feel.
