Release Blitz, ARC Review & Giveaway!- Fervent (Condemned #3) by Gemma James

RDB Banner
Title:  Fervent (Condemned #3)  
Author:  Gemma James
Genre: Dark Romance  
Date:  April 30th 2015

Plot:  Fervent is the third book in the Condemned series.

I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us show no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.

Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.

What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe. I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me.

He’ll even die for me.

NOTE TO READERS: FERVENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part three of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read! Please begin with TORRENT and RAMPANT, otherwise, FERVENT might not make much sense. 

 My Review 
☆ I received an ARC via Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!☆

The second to the last installment to this series, Fervent was one of those reads where you keep thinking to yourself that things can’t possibly get worse but they do.

Fervent Teaser1

Those of you who already read the first two books, should be well aware that author Gemma James doesn’t hold back on the punches, so expect the unexpected!

Rafe and Alex will be tried and tried again in the most pleasurable but insurmountable brutality of quests for love, salvation, redemption, and attempting to survive their most trying of tests.

Sorry, I normally would outline the general plot and character's mindframes and inner-conflicts, but I feel as if I would spoil and ruin what's to come in this read!

Anyway, awesome, awesome read!!

Release Day Blast!- Sincerely, Carter by Whitney Gracia Williams

Title:  Sincerely, Carter
Author:  Whitney Gracia Williams
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Date:  April 30, 2015
Plot:  Just friends.
We’re just friends.
No, really. She’s just my best friend... 

Arizona Turner has been my best friend since fourth grade, even when we “hated” each other. We’ve been there for one another through first kisses, first “times,” and we’ve been each other’s constant when good relationships turned bad. (We even went to colleges that were minutes away from each other…)

Throughout the years, and despite what anyone says, we’ve never crossed the line.

Never thought about it.
Never wanted to.

Until one night changed everything.
At least, it should’ve ...

Just friends.
We’re just friends.
I’m only saying this until I figure out if she’s still “just” my best friend…

Sincerely Carter4

Blog Tour Review & Giveaway!- Clipped by Love (Bellevue Bullies #2) by Toni Aleo

Clipped by Love Tour Banner
Title:  Clipped by Love (Bellevue Bullies #2)  
Author:  Toni Aleo
Publication Date: April 27th 2015
Plot:   Things are heating up for the Sinclair boys! With one already in the NHL, Jayden Sinclair is hoping to be next! 

This has been the toughest year of my life. I watched my brother go into the draft without me, my mom got divorced, and the weight of my family’s issues is heavy on my shoulders. I feel like it’s my job to fix everything while working my butt off in school and trying to make my game better. I have to go into the draft. It will give my family the support they need, and it will prove that I’m good enough. But to get there, I have to show I can be the best captain for the Bellevue Bullies. The spot is mine—no one can take it. First though, Jude is making me go on a brother’s weekend. Innocent enough, I guess…until I see her. She’s the biggest competitor I’ve ever faced. Not only for my spot but also my heart. It’s hard to ignore someone like Baylor Moore. 

I don’t lose. I can’t. My dad has bred me to be the best in anything I do. I am driven, I am smart, and I am going to be the first woman in the National Hockey League. No two ways about it. I’ve worked too hard. I’ve been through too much not to have what I want. I know I can do it. I will make my dad proud, and no one will stand in the way of that. That is, until I let him in. He scares me. He makes me feel. And he could very well be the one person who can make me want more than just to win. 

We both have the same goal. Victory. But how do you compete against the person you want to win? It’s not easy. Love isn’t something you can control. It isn’t like a puck that can be handled by a stick. No, it has a mind of its own and does what it wants. 

Neither of us saw it coming, and we really don’t know if there is a way to score, especially when you’re being Clipped by Love.

Clipped by Love teaser 2

Clipped By Love follow’s Jude’s younger brother Jayden and his ladylove, Baylor.

grey divider no background hi

Two individuals.

So different. And yet, so alike.

Driven.Passionate.And unyielding to failure.

Jayden--- the mature, middle Sinclair bro with the weight upon his shoulders.

Baylor--- the only woman on a men’s hockey team with a chip on her shoulder and something to prove.

Both with hopes and dreams of earning the coveted captain’s seat of the Bellevue Bullies and being drafted into the NHL.

But there is catch…. for women like Baylor, no female has ever skated in the National Hockey League. Ever.

And with this male dominated world with not so fond views and animosity of women in their testosterone filled rink, and a brewing love developing between her and Jayden, how will everything turn out?

Can Baylor break the mold and rise above her past to let Jayden into her jaded heart?

Will Jayden follow his big brother’s footsteps and Baylor in her father’s? Will they have their day in the big league?

And even if they were both to make it, how would they make things work?

How can two people, a couple more less, keep a relationship in a tangled web such as this? And can both set a path of their own?

Is this love meant to be? Or is it simply meant to be nipped in the bud? Read and you will find out!

#Wah. I LOVED Jayden Sinclair!! He was by far, the most patient, persistent, optimistic, and alpha of male characters that you can’t help but adore and fall in love with. Not to mention! Make you gals envy Baylor for such a hardworking and responsible young man taking such immense interest in her. Man, did he not give up on her!

As for Baylor... boy, was she a stubborn gal! Sometimes her stubborn personality, her insecurities, and that pride of hers got the best of her and got in the way of things!! I wanted to strangle her at times and knock some sense into her! XD lol

I’m really hoping that Jace’s story is up next, and perhaps, even Markus! Even though he is not a Sinclair bro! I adored him!

Can there be a SinclairXMoore love match in the mix while we're at it?!

Pretty please?!

One-click this one ladies!! You will definitely be 'clipped' by this book of a gem! ♥

Clipped by Love teaser 3


My Rating:

 Book One of the Bellevue Bullies Series


Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey’s in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but I’m good at it…really good. The draft is within my reach—it’s mine to take—but that’s not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words, I don’t do relationships beyond my family and friends. I’m happy with life. However, I should warn you that my story and how I see it playing out is about to change due to a certain redhead on campus.

She’s beautiful. Stunning. Breathtaking.

She’s my game changer.

He’s trouble from the moment I see him. I don’t know what I’m thinking, but from the moment I meet his gaze, I’m his. It’s a scary feeling.

I’ve never trusted anyone outside my aunt and uncle—and even that took months. I didn’t have it easy growing up. My mom was usually strung out, and she didn’t give me a second thought. Drugs and the men who paid her were more important to her. It was horrible, but I’m stronger today. Because of my past, security is what I need most. Money assures me that I can take care of myself today, tomorrow, and next month. I don’t want to ever be hungry or go without again, so I work hard for every penny.

Oh, by the way, I’m Claire Anderson. I’m a hard-studying sophomore at the University of Bellevue, dancer for the school dance team, and a burlesque dancer at a club, but that’s my secret.
You may think you know how our story ends, but you have no clue. It’s not easy falling in love… or living happily ever after. At first it may seem so, but when is anything worth having ever won without a fight?

Especially when you’re boarded by love.
