Review Blitz- Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

  The first time I met Caine West was in a bar. He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out. When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass. You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married. He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done. Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant. Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy. Oops. My mistake. Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology. I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right? That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning. Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant. I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking. Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West. This was going to be interesting… ADD TO GOODREADS  

 My Review 

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

I have this guilty pleasure when it comes to taboo-forbidden kind of romances.  Granted, these are both consenting adults in this novel so it shouldn't be, but the whole student & teacher dynamic is a HUGE no-no in all aspects.

I've been following author Vi Keeland for a while now, ever since her Fighting series, and I've noticed that she never fails to intrigue me with these risque kind of romances.  I mean, we've had hot off the charts MMA fighters, rockstar gods, a playboy pilot and dirty talking attorney, and so so much more!!  This is more yumminess that I could ever imagine!!

For all those who have kept up with her novels like I have, then you will or perhaps won't know what to expect next next from this talented author.  For me, some off the elements from this story as well as her previous writings mirror each other in some aspects.  But in entirety, it was its own in whole.

Anyway, make sure to check it out and one click right away!

Release Blitz & Blog Tour Review- Out of the Ashes (Maji, #1) by L.A. Casey

Title: Out of the Ashes
Series: Maji, Book 1
Genre: Science Fiction, Romance

LA Casey brings her readers OUT OF THE ASHES — the first Sci FiRomance book in a new series of sexy standalone novels. These other world alphas are looking for their perfect mates that can bring them to their knees… and human women fit their criteria perfectly.

For Nova, a twenty-three-year-old survivalist, wandering a barren wasteland was a lonely existence. But her day-to-day life was about to drastically change forever. Gone were the days when her only worries were rabid animals, augmented humans, the unforgiving scorching sun, and rogue watchmen. Now, Nova found herself faced with a new threat, and he was tall, grey, and horribly stubborn. 
For Kol, a two-hundred-year-old daredevil, sailing the never-ending waves of deep space was a vast and thrilling life to lead. He had one objective on Earth—rescue as many human females as possible and return them to his home planet. It was supposed to be simple, but no one told Kol that a human female’s tongue could slice a male like a blade. His charge was short, strikingly attractive, and she talked way too much. 
Nova wasn’t going to be kidnapped without putting up a fight, but Kol was more than ready to go toe to toe with her. These two species set out on a collision course that would redefine the phrase “The Big Bang” forever.

 My Review 

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

This book was enjoyable but not anything I haven't come across in a sci-fi/post-apocalyptic and romance novels.  One thing I noticed like all of the other LA Casey reads was that the females were still all hellraisers and the males just have to take their bat sh*# craziness.  I don't know about anyone else but oh hell naw I would not put up any one being mouthy or scrappy with me.  I felt a little sorry to the males in this read! lol

That all aside, I did find this novel a likable read with potential.  I always do wonder if there is life outside of our solar system and what would happen if our planet became a wasteland and this was one take on it.  Granted, it's a bit dramatic but hey it's a story and I did like it.

Anyway, I am curious for the next book in this series so I will be bookmarking this series as one to keep watch on.

I swayed from side to side as my pain and shock became too much for me. I focused my blurring vision dead ahead and made out six dark figures walking toward me. Six huge figures. When they stopped a few metres from me, they stared at me, and me at them. They were fully clothed in a black armour of some kind, and it only made them look that much more intimidating.
The man in the front said something in a language that didn’t sound of this planet, and without thinking, I stammered, “Wh-what?”
The man grunted and turned to his right and spoke to the person behind him in that same strange language.
“No,” the man behind replied in strained English. “We’ve practiced for weeks; you have not. You need to learn how to speak the human languages to make this mission easier, just until we fit them with translators of their own. Do what I told you to do. Repeat what your translator says through your comm, and the female will understand you like you can understand me right now. I’m not responding to you anymore unless you use this particular human language.”
With a defeated sigh, the large man turned back in my direction.
“I sa-said,” he rumbled in a bizarre accent as he switched to an extremely choppy version of English, pausing every couple of words as if he was trying to form them as he spoke. “What ‘re … you ‘oing … out … ‘ere?”
After he had spoken, he removed the mask that covered his face. The now well-lit area shone brightly on his face and revealed all I needed to know about him to be terrified. He had vibrant grey skin, dazzling violet eyes, and menacing sharp teeth with gold caps on them. That was the moment I dropped to the ground like a sack of potatoes and began tumbling into darkness.
“Why do fe-females … ‘eep ‘oing … dat ‘round me?” the Maji asked with a tired sigh.
Without missing a beat, the other voice said, “I told you that you were ugly. How many human females must faint before you until you realise that?”
