Review4 Pennies

Dancing with Devia it is one crazy good book.  Jullian never even realizes that one innocent meeting with a woman named Devia at a car show had the potential to send him and his life on a whirlwind of unpredictable circumstances with horrible consequences.

I enjoyed the way that the story is told, from the point of Jullian looking back to explain to us how he ended up where he is at this time.

He was a man that went from believing he had it all, a loving wife, two amazing children and a career that he loved, to losing it all.  The hardest part to watch was him not even knowing or understanding how everything was pulled out from underneath him, he was always in the dark.

Devia is a devil on earth.  She believes she should have whatever she wants no matter what the cost is to others.  I do believe she has no soul.

Throughout this book we are taken on a ride, right alongside with Jullian, the only difference we at least had a little of a clue what was going on behind the scenes.

This book kept me on my toes, at times it was hard to tell what was up or coming next.  The only truth throughout was Devia was a conniving, horrible human being that will stop at nothing for what she wants.  Jullian appears to be a very naïve, individual who doesn’t listen to his own gut when he should have and it gets him in quite a few predicaments.

Viveca Benoir does a great job with writing using the element of surprise, catching the reader off guard.  Just when you think you know where the story is going another aspect is thrown in the changes the story entirely.  Even after finishing I was left thinking was that real, and who is telling the truth….

BOOK REVIEW ~ STRIP BACK, ERIC’S STORY 0.5 ~ BY AVA MANELLO (PENNY STEPHANIE)

Posted on

AVASTRIP BACK  (1)

23198845

Title: Strip Back
Series: Naked Nights #0.5
Author: Ava Manello
Cover by:MargreetAsselbergs
Hosted by:Francessca’s Romance Reviews

Synopsis 3Strip back teaser (1)

Strip Back brings you back to how the Naked Night’s began. This is Eric’s story. Back when life was a little less polished, and a whole lot harder.

Before there was Strip Teaser, there was Eric; manager and founder of the Naked Night’s male stripper troupe.

You wouldn’t think you’d be past it at 34, but that’s the position Eric found himself in, as well as newly single after finding his girlfriend in a compromising position.

Setting up the Naked Night’s wasn’t easy, it wasn’t fun, and it wasn’t without sleaze, but somehow he did it.

Strip Back is a humorous and steamy tale of one man’s journey to fulfill a dream. Not all male strippers are the same.

Review5 Pennies

 

Eric’s story and the creation of Naked Night’s…

During this book we get to see what Eric’s thought process was in the creation of Naked Night’s, the turning point at which he decided it was time to make a change in his life and to witness the connection and coming together of him and Christy.

To be told at the age of 34 you are too old for your profession, had to be quite the wakeup call for Eric.

This book was very entertaining and enjoyable.  I loved Naked Night’s book 1, Strip Teaser, but wasn’t sure what to expect with a prequel book.  This book surpassed anything I could have imagined.  We got to meet the guys from the beginning, learn their personalities and see more of Eric the person not just the stripper.

This story is one man’s journey in discovering he can do anything he sets his mind too.  He discovers what true friendship is in Tiny and he also discovers what it feels like to truly love and lose that love before it even has a chance to go anywhere.  I enjoyed every minute of this book and just wish it was longer.  I can’t wait to see what is next to come in the Naked Night’s series from Ava Manello.

Author Bio

I am a wife, a programmer, and now an author. I have an adorable mini Schnauzer and more books than I have room for. I love reading romance because no matter what may be happening in my life, I can always count on my books to end happily ever after. The day I met my husband was the day I truly began believing in happily ever after. After hearing me complain a few too many times that I had “nothing” to read despite the hundreds of paperbacks scattered around the house, my husband began suggesting I write my own stories. When I finally took his advice I discovered that although I enjoy my day job as a software engineer, my true calling is to be an author.

My sister drilled into me an appreciation for fantasy and mythology, something I try to bring to my books. My debut novel, “Breaking the Nexus”, started as a book written for NaNoWriMo and has grown to so much more. It was the conduit that introduced me to a fantastic group of independent authors who have changed my life in unimaginable ways.

When I’m not writing, I’ve found a passion for blogging and interviewing fellow authors. I also love reading (of course!), baking, crochet, sewing sock monkeys, playing video games, and all sorts of random crafts. I have an incurable love of rubber duckies and stuffed animals, and I believe nobody should have to grow up if they don’t want.

 Excerpt

#Excerpt

“I’m going to tell her tonight Corbin. This time I will do it, I swear.”

My foot is tapping the wood porch in front of Jos and Luna’s place while my hand keeps combing my hair back. Damn it why can’t I get up the nerve to tell Josephine about Robin? Because she will hate me that’s why. Jesus, I hate me. No wonder that prick Ryan was being such a dick. I think he’s just a natural asshole but with the information he has, he is ready to take me down. That shit bag is chomping at the bit to sink his teeth into Josephine. I know once she learns what happened she’ll dump me. Perhaps that’s what I deserve, to have the most beautiful woman show me heaven and then drop my ass.

God, I hate myself right now.

“Well, wait until after dinner, okay Pierce? I want to have a good time tonight.”

Corbin pats me on the back and rings the doorbell. We can hear laughter coming from inside. The door swings wide and Luna is standing there in a long green silk dress looking almost as striking as the gorgeous raven haired beauty standing just behind her.

My nerves disappear for a moment as I try to catch my breath. Josephine has her head tilted down ever so slightly, but her gaze is set upon me. She is so beautiful standing there in her white dress. It makes her skin glow or eyes sparkle or something that stops the world for that moment.

Luna practically knocks me over to get to Corbin, jumping into his arms and snapping me back into reality. I feel a hand on my arm, firm but gentle if that can happen. Looking over, I see Josephine smiling.

“Are you okay Pierce? You should watch where you’re going Luna, you nearly knocked over my man!”

Did she just call me her man? Perhaps this double date wasn’t such a good idea. I am sure Corbin won’t mind if I cancel and Josephine and I stay the night in bed.

“Are you feeling alright Pierce? You have a strange look on your face.”

“Ahhh…Yeah, I’m okay. Sorry, my mind was somewhere else for a moment.”

“I think I can guess Pierce — did it have anything to do with my bedroom?”

She is smirking as she somehow reads my mind right now. How does she do that?

I wrap my arm around her waist and pull her in to feel her warm body next to mine. The soft beat of her heart reverberates through me as I inhale her sweet floral scent. I don’t think I will ever be able to smell honeysuckles ever again without Josephine popping into my head. Even if she leaves me. Shit! I just remembered why she would leave me. I nuzzle my head into her neck to make the nerves go away.

By K. A. Sterritt

Release date: November 14, 2014
“One foot in front of the other. Breathe in, breathe out.”
Holly
Ashton hasn’t celebrated her birthday since her mother passed away.

independent woman she wants to be.
Professionally, she has it all together. A great job as an architect at Sydney’s most prestigious firm keeps her focused.
Her
personal life is far less charmed. Emotionally detached from everyone
other than her small circle of friends and family, relationships are a

Life is exactly how she wants it to be – until the day of her twenty-fifth birthday.
A chance encounter with Ryan Davenport, CEO of a property development firm, turns her tightly controlled life upside down.
Ryan
is driven, ambitious and used to getting what he wants – and very
unexpectedly, what he wants is the beautiful, smart-mouthed Holly
Ashton.

When neither of them believes in happily ever afters, how are they supposed to find their own?

Review5 Pennies

This review was difficult for me to write because there is just so much I want to say about this book, but I don’t want to take anything away from readers getting their own experience when reading it.  The Holly Project is a very moving story about life, death, friends, family, and the journey of one girl to discover that there is a difference between just existing and living.

I really loved this book and can’t wait to see what will come next from K.A. Sterritt.

Holly suffers a great loss at the early age of 15 years old.  Loss always hits everyone differently, but in this case it had a profound effect on Holly’s life and the decisions that she makes in her personal life.  She grew up seeing a perfect love story between her dad and mom, so after her mother passed and she saw the shell of her dad, she made a decision from that day forward that she would never do that to anyone.  She would avoid love and relationships at all costs.  But sometimes fate has different plans.

Holly has a core group of friends, Audrey who has been in her life since childhood and is like a second sister.  Then you have Zara and Jason, both she met at the University, the foursome is very close and hangs out all the time together.  Even though Holly has a great start of a career as an architect and great friends, she is still not living.  She is basically floating through life and waiting for the inevitable death that will come.

When Holly lands her dream job and finds out her new client is the Ryan Davenport, she is floored and not sure what to think or do.  The instant chemistry they have for each other is amazing to watch develop.  The journey that we see over the span of a year for Holly, her friends, career, family and Ryan is one that fairy tales are made of…There is even a wicked witch known as Rachael.

Throughout this book we get to witness some very high moments and the lowest of the low moments for Holly, but we also get to witness her growth as an independent woman.  The discoveries that she makes and the strides that she makes for her future make for an amazingly moving story to read.  We get to see if two anti-relationship individuals can come together to make a future.

When Holly meets with her father at the suggestion of Audrey is one of my favorite parts of the book.  It is so raw and heart-warming to witness the changes in Holly just from talking with her dad.  When he explains to her that you can’t look at the end of life but you have to cherish what you were able to have, made me have to grab a tissue…

Holly’s father’s response to her question, “How are you even functioning?  Because for eighteen incredible years, I had everything. Some people never get that – I got eighteen years. Of course I wanted more. I wanted my forever. But I was lucky to get any time at all with that women…She’s still here with me Holly.  I’m not just functioning. I’m living.”

Synopsis 3

#Synopsis:

Everything Avianna Linton thought she knew was shattered in one traffic stop. With her life turned upside down, she flees to the bright lights of New York City hoping for anonymity and a new life.

Rising from nothing, Noah Adams holds onto his power and control with a bone-crushing grip. No one dared challenge his authority until her…

Avi’s disdain for Noah is barely contained, and Noah does everything he can to restrain himself—a concept he has little experience with.

There’s more between the two than either of them realize. A force looms near, hovering with deadly precision and motivated solely by revenge.

Avi wonders who her new friends truly are and if she’s already in too deep. Noah, accustomed to getting what he wants, will do whatever it takes to draw Avi’s in deeper.

Deeper is an interracial romantic suspense novel by new author Allyn Lesley.

Excerpt

#Excerpt

© Allyn Lesley 2014

Where the fuck is that little she-devil?

Zo pointed toward the dance floor, addressing his employer’s unvoiced question. “Under the ball.”

Noah saw her clear as day and dancing way too close with someone who might soon be leaving the club with a limp. He blew out a breath. She knew better than this, yet she still tested the limits set up for her protection.

A restraining hand on Noah’s arm paused him mid-stride. “Boss?”

Noah’s eyes widened at Zo’s hand. Immediately, the younger man’s hand fell away, and he wisely stepped back. Even in the dim light, Noah saw embarrassment tinge Zo’s face.

            “I, um. Excuse me, Mister Adams, but I can’t let you go over there,” Zo said, swallowing the fear his boss evoked.

“Let. Me?” Noah pointed at himself and straightened to his impressive six feet and five inches. “And who’s going to stop me?”
