Blog Tour Review- Inevitable (Key West #2) by C.A. Harms

BT Banner
Title:  Inevitable (Key West #2)
Author:  C.A. Harms
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: June 30th 2015 by Limitless Publishing LLC
Plot:   Harper Jameson, had built the necessary walls to keep her heart safe. Never again would she allow herself to become weak and vulnerable.

Confident and full of attitude.

A mask she wore that many fell for…

Accept Easton Black.

He was equally confident, cocky and knew what he wanted.


Things he wanted rarely escaped his grasp. He was immune to the façade Harper had created.

She was Intriguing.

It was Inevitable and Harper could sense that there was no way out. Easton Black would no doubt be the man who could change everything.

People aren’t always as strong as they appear to be on the outside…

Harper + Easton.

A beautiful tale of filled with a hot, sexy alpha male and a fiery female heroine!

Inevitable is the second book in the Key West series and did was brilliant nonetheless!

Author C.A. Harms writes with flare, integrity, and with feeling!

Harper and Easton’s rapport was a really well-grounded and executed as we have a female lead, Harper, who hasn’t had it easy in life and is head strong and spirited; and a resilient male counterpart, Easton, who can hold his own and go up well against her. While Harper is prickly and rough around the edges, Easton can see well beyond that, that vulnerability she tries to hide inside despite her tough exterior.

They have this rare type of bond that transcends beyond broken pasts, insecurities, and just dwindles down to the two of them being able to strip down each other’s layers and call out each other’s bullsh@$ and just be themselves around one another.

I really loved the give and take they highlight in one another and how they give each other something worth fighting for.

Can this duo face the inevitable and submit to fate? To destiny? Or will it crumble around and consume this unlikely couple?

Read and you will find out!

Plot:  If your soul has been plunged into the dark depths of despair, how hard would you fight to claw your way back to the surface? Can the life you lost be restored, or is it destined to be forever phased out of existence? Fated to dissolve into a distant memory.

The Black Market—a ferocious, starving beast. An endless sinkhole of precious valuables; the playground for blood-thirsty power seekers. Only one thing feeds its hunger like no other…human life.

A sinister criminal ring has descended on the small town of Norton Springs, instilling fear in the residents. A vicious wave of disappearances coupled with the gut-wrenching horror of infants being ripped from the arms of their helpless mothers has the town quaking in terror.

No one is safe. Everything you thought you knew is about to change in this second installment in The Darkness Series.

 My Review for Bk1- Malevolent 


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

Malevolent was a different direction from what I usually go for in reads. I’m normally not into dark reads, probably because I don’t care for angsty or heavy themes it, but this one piqued my interest.

In a setting all about starting over, a sinister lurking in the background, and highlighted in suspense, I couldn’t help but feel as if anything was a go. Especially with a killer on the loose, a sexy cop heroine trying to catch him/her before they strike again, and a tumultuous whirlwind romance taking place. It was quite an interesting set up and fascinating turn of events all up in one.

Cassia Brightmore was a new author to me, but as of now, no more. I will definitely be checking into her and keeping up with her and this series.

I can’t see where she takes this series next, as it kept me intrigued, on my feet, and constantly surprised.

Wonderful read!

Teaser 2

The second installment in the series, author Cassia Brightmore goes in a more darker direction and doesn’t fail to bring things up the notch.

As I, like other reviewers, were asked not to share the plot as it could ensue spoilers, all I can say is that Evanesce brings in old and reoccurring demented themes and characters while also bringing up controversial twists and turns that will make you sit at the edge of your seats with suspense.

I really did not know what to expect through on through, but, Cassia Brightmore managed to grip my attention from start to finish with her amazing writing style!

And what of that ending?! Sheesh. Talk about speechless!

My Rating:

Gripping Red’s hand tight, the two ran up the stairs, Brooke wincing each time one of the boards squeaked under the pressure of their weight.  At the top, the door was open, a fact that had Brooke’s heart jumping up her throat like it was on a damn trampoline.  Peering out, she ensured there was no one in sight before tugging Red forward.  A few steps into the carpeted foyer, the sound of voices drifted towards them.  Panicking, she pulled Red into what she thought was an empty room and shut the door.
              Panting, she leaned against the door, trying to catch her breath. 
              “We have to hide here, Red.  I’ll check if it’s safe in a few minutes.”  When there was no reply from Red, Brooke turned her head, searching.  “Red?”  The other woman stood frozen, unmoving in the middle of the room.
              “What are you—ahh…” Brooke stepped up beside Red, concerned why she was non-verbal.  The room was not empty as she had expected.  It wasn’t empty at all and the scene before them was a terrifying one.
              Cots.  Rows and rows of cots and each one was occupied with a tiny infant.  Some were sleeping, wrapped in thin blankets.  Others were squirming, having come loose from their bundle.  A few were wailing, a loud sound that would make any dog in the surrounding area sit up and take notice.  How Brooke didn’t hear them, was beyond her.  The adrenaline was a roar in her ears, blocking out everything except listening for footsteps of anyone that might be approaching.  A quick count revealed twenty-four cots.  Twenty-four babies either stolen are birthed by a mother that was likely a prisoner in the same house of horrors she was trying to escape from. 
              Covering her mouth, Brooke supressed a scream of disgust.  Children.  Helpless infants all lined up and ready to be sold by the indescribable monster, Marcus.  An auction straight from a mother’s worst nightmare.
              “Red,” she tried to get her attention.  “Red,” she said with more force.  When that still didn’t work, she reached out and lightly shook her.  The haunted, empty look in her eyes when Red finally acknowledged her, broke Brooke’s heart into a million tiny pieces.
              “My sons.  My daughters…” she moved towards the cots.  “I—I have to find them.  I—I—I didn’t get to—to hold them,” she stammered, peering over the cots at the tiny faces.  Her heartbreak was written all over her face as she searched from cot to cot for her children. 
              Not being able to stand seeing her torment, Brooke rushed to her side, trying to tug her away. “Red, I don’t think they are here now.  These…these are infants.  As in just born, and you—” Red’s head whipped around to pin Brooke with furious eyes.
              “Shut up.  You know nothin’.  My children are here.  They are here.” Tears sprang to Brooke’s eyes at the utter despair in Red’s voice.

              “I really wish they were, God, Red.  But I promise you, we will make these bastards pay.  We will find your children and make sure they can never do this to any other woman,” Brooke’s promise was fierce and true.  She would shut this operation down, even if it killed her to do it.

A hot celibate priest breaking his vows? Yes, please!

11124253 1571777159750054 1395049734 n


Although, maybe it's just me but, I skimmed majority of this read. I just did not connect with the plot and especially the main characters as much as I would have thought.

A lot of the book content seemed to focus on sex, which I'm not complaining over, but I wished there was something more to hold my interest, ya know?

Basically, after tragedy strikes and Tyler becomes a priest at his family's Catholic church, one day during confessional he meets Poppy.

They have an instant connection, or should I say attraction, and from there everything is pretty fast-paced.

There was sex, sex, and lots of sex!!


But when Poppy's ex, Tyler's family secret, as well as his decision to stay in the priesthood or leave it all completely--come into play, will he repent for his sins? Or find love and happiness in the sacrament of love?

So, would I recommend this read?


Maybe. If you love smutt galore and constant "c*nt," "wh#re," and "lamb" references.

All in all, a big toss up for me. I didn't hate this read, but I didn't love it either. I could feel Tyler's dilemma about his vows, his guilt for what happened in the past, and the angst he felt over falling in love with Poppy; not to mention, the anguish of ever letting her go.

It's just, something was missing in it for me.

ARC Review- Cale (Walk of Shame #3) by Victoria Ashley

18720 1695145544047102 2274953154524895671 n
Title:  Cale (Walk of Shame #3)
Author:  Victoria Ashley‏
Publication Date:  July 6th 2015

Plot:  My name is Cale Kinley and I’m a fucking Virgin…

Well, with the exception of my tongue. The countless things I can do with my tongue are bound to leave you breathless and begging for more, but more… is something that I can’t give. It’s a choice. My choice.

There’s a reason for that. A very good reason, and that reason is her.


She’s the only woman that I want to bury myself deep in. The one woman I have wanted since I was old enough to fuck.

I never got my chance though, because she left. She had no choice and it stung like hell. But I couldn’t let her leave without telling her how I felt. I wanted her to be my first and I didn’t give a shit how long I’d have to wait.

It’s been six years and now she’s back and sexier than all hell. Just the sight of her stops my damn heart from beating. I want her and for more than just having her as my first.

I’m determined to have her in every way possible. She thinks this is still a game; that I’ve already given myself to countless women. What she doesn’t know is that I have a lot of willpower.

When I want something as badly as I want her, I don’t let shit stand in my way. I’m going to prove that to her. There’s just one little problem I need to take care of…


 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much!! ☆

"When Cale loves someone, he loves them with everything in him."

Cale. The virgin male heroine of the series. Man, was I waiting for his story. Especially, after reading that synopsis! Wowza!

11402668 1693612447533745 7546297607444377684 n

Cale and Riley have been besties ever since they can remember. They also have been unknowingly in love with each other for as long too.

With chance taking Riley away and years later bringing her back into Cale's grips, he's not taking any more chances. It's time now to finally claim what's always been his, and that is, Riley.

11698565 1695317350696588 5067823263130170214 n

But with Riley's ex and Cale's racy occupation at The Walk of Shame causing concerns, as well as the two battling their own insecurities and feelings for each other, how will it all turn out? Is their love truly meant to be? Or not at all?

11042965 1644911135737210 7035350423691353875 n

An over all smexy as hell read of missed opportunities and friends to lovers romance, ladies get ready to be fanning yourselves and your undergarments!
