*REVIEW* The Truth About Kadenburg (The Kadenburg Shifters #1) by T.E. Ridener

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 5 Stars

Presley and Lorcan grew up together in Kadenburg. Presley moves away with her boyfriend Tim but when Presley ends up going through a rough patch, she heads home to Kadenburg, to her Uncle Arnold. Being back, she discovers things she never knew, like the fact Uncle Arnold, Lorcan's family and herself are shifters. Bears to be precise. 

She finds out that they is a war going betweens the bears and the wolves and it's only a matter of time before the wolves attack and they will have to defend themselves. Presley finds out a lot about herself and her mother and father as well as her relationship with Lorcan.

This is a fantastic read and i truly thought it was written beautifully. I was gripped from the start and it was such an enjoyable read. I love my paranormal and shifters are one of my favourites. I have to say. i haven't read about bear shifters before so that was a pleasant change and all characters were great especially Lorcan. Such a calm, caring, handsome, muscular guy. What's not to like! I'm looking forward to reading book 2. 

26 year old Presley Goult's life is anything but ordinary. Her mother abandoned her as a toddler after her father’s death, leaving Presley to be raised by the only family she has left-her uncle Arnold. After years of being away she returns heartbroken and devastated knowing this is the last place she wants to be. Unbeknownst to her, Kadenburg is not your ordinary town. There are secrets that have been kept from Presley for her own good. Will she find out the truth of who she is and the part she will play in the war that is about to erupt before it is too late to save everyone that she loves? 

28 year old Lorcan Bamey was Presley's best friend growing up. He has always been there for her when she needed a friend and someone to lean on. Although he has always wanted more from Presley, rules are rules and he was forbidden to express his interest in having a relationship with her. You see, his upbringing was very different from most of the boys in town; the female must make the choice. It is part of Urseth’s law; laws that Presley will soon discover when her uncle finally decides to be honest about their ancestry. 

Will Presley accept the truth about Kadenburg, and herself, in time to save her people?

* REVIEW * - Wicked Ties (Steele Security #2) by A.D. Justice

Reviewer : Cheryl
Rating : 5 Stars

In the first book in this Series I came to know a little bit about Bull and I loved him.   In this book I absolutely am obsessed.

Much like the first book Wicked Games, Wicked Ties, brings the thrill, suspense, and twists.  It keeps you focused on your ereader and makes you stay in place until the very last word.  I know it is a bit cliche', but I could not put it down!

Chaise is in trouble and seeks help from Noah.  She shows up at his wedding as an uninvited party goer, but never makes it in because of the Steele Security men led by Bull.  At first glance Bull thought Chaise was trouble and was trying to break up Brianna and Noah, but her attitude reflected she was truly scared.  She is taken to the Headquarters of Steele Security for an interview, but is followed by bad guys.  These men are waylaid by other members of the Security team while Chaise and Bull get away.  When they finally arrive to their destination Chaise stalls and tells Bull as little as possible.  As scared as Chaise is she tells him what happened to her and her suspicions about the company she works for.  When it is clear that there is no place safe for Chaise, Bull takes her to the safest place he knows of: his home.  They are attracted to each other and when they come together it is on a primal level.  Chaise is hiding secrets from Bull about who she is and when it all comes out Bull loses his trust in Chaise and more chaos ensues.  Chaise leaves and goes back to where it all started only to be kidnapped.  Will Bull be able to save her in time?

Chaise is vulnerable, but she is a very strong female character.  When it comes to being pushed around she will not stand for it.  Bull is the take charge kind of man and with Chaise he fits right in.  He keeps her grounded and away from the edge of her sanity.  What happens when she is on her own?  What happens to them when she is kidnapped?  One click this one to find out.

What if everything you believed in turned out to be a lie?
What if learning the truth changed everything?

Colton “Bull” Lanier thought he had his life all figured out. His trust was hard earned. He let no one see the man inside. He didn’t believe in love and he didn’t get involved. That is, until she walked into his life.

There’s more to Steele Security’s newest client, Chaise, than what meets the eye. She’s in trouble but she’s also hiding something and keeps her secrets close to the vest. With her life in danger, Bull reluctantly takes on her case to help her find a missing girl and protect her life in the process. 

When their attraction flares hot enough to burn them, Bull gives Chaise something very rare – his trust. But as worlds collide, lifelong secrets are revealed that makes Bull question everything he’s ever believed. When Chaise disappears, the men of Steele Security are on the case. But will they get there in time?

Forgiveness. Trust. Love.

Ruthless. Doubt. Coldness.

Will Bull find out what kind of man he really is?

* REVIEW * - What Happens In Vegas ... Doesn’t Always Stay There (The Porter Brothers) by Terry Towers

Reviewer : Kaylene
Rating : 3.5 Stars

Interesting storyline, with a few twists...

What Happens in Vegas is a book about two brothers, NYPD Officers Dane and Graham Porter and their chance meeting of Genevieve (Ginny) Fennel ,who has gone to Vegas after being left at the altar by her high school sweetheart - simply awful. She’s hurt and sad but doesn't want to waste all that money she spent on their honeymoon (because it was non-refundable) so she goes to Vegas solo.  Whilst playing the slots she meets Dane and decides to do something she’s never done in her life, a one night stand.

Ginny also meets Graham, Dane’s brother in a very interesting way.  They end up having a night of pleasure m-f-m ménage and she leaves the brothers and does the walk of shame after a freak out, leaving Vegas and going home, hoping to forget what had happened. 

Without going into too much detail because I’d give the storyline away, but basically she struggles to figure out which brother she actually wants to be with.  I loved both of the brothers, and I can understand why she had so much trouble making a decision.  To know who she picks you will have to read the book.
This book had some pretty hot moments and I enjoyed it.  I was not disappointed by Terry Towers as I have read another of her books and enjoyed it.  I did feel that the story ended abruptly and would have liked to have seen this story go on a little to explain the chosen brother’s life with Ginny.  This is a book that I would recommend if you can look past a few editing issues and the abrupt finish, but all in all I give it three point five stars and round it up to four stars.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not always…

After being left at the altar by her high school sweetheart Genevieve Fennel is done with love, done with romance and done with men. Period. She’s always been a good girl, while her friends indulged in casual encounters and they seem happy and satisfied enough. So why can’t she?

Meeting NYPD officers Dane and Graham Porter in Vegas gives her an opportunity to be the bad girl she thinks she needs to be. After a night of passion, she finds herself embarrassed of her wanton behaviour, but takes solace in the fact she can put the night behind her once she returns home.

Back in New York just when she thinks she can forget what happened in Vegas, destiny shows it has other plans. When there’s a break-in at her boutique, it’s the sexy-as-sin Porter brothers who are sent to her rescue intent on stirring up the feelings of abandon she’s trying to forget.

How can she forget what happened in Vegas, when the two men who brought her to such heights of pleasure refuse to let her go so easily? Even if she does decide to open her heart to them, how can she make a choice between the two amazing brothers, both intent on winning her affections? Or maybe she doesn’t have to...

* COVER REVEAL* Impulsion (A Station 32 Novel)" by Jamie Magee


His fingertips slowly moved down her face, down her neck. He noticed how all the tension in her body drifted away, how her eyes slowly closed, the long, deep breaths that were causing her chest to rise and fall.
“The sight of you brought it all back, past and present colliding with a magnitude that is so great…that I have no choice but to stop and realize that the only thing holding us back this go ‘round is us.”
He reached his arm around her waist and pulled her body against his, causing her eyes to fly open, those breaths to come even faster. “And Harley, I’m going to fight like hell for you. And as soon as I make you mine again, I will die before I ever let anyone take you from me again.” His hand rose to her face, his thumb grazed her flesh, his eyes dipped to her lips, then met her gaze once more. “You’re the only woman I have ever loved. That I ever will love.”
All at once, they both moved forward, their lips connecting as if they were molded from one source, a well-practiced dance of flesh, the perfect rhythm, teasing brushes of tongues that knew just when to fall into a deeper kiss, a kiss that was so devouring that all thought, all reason vanished. The impulse of the heart, that deep passion that lies dormant within erupted to a euphoria that made it impossible to fathom life outside of that very instant.

Author: KM Golland
Re-Releasing 1st May 2014

You can close your eyes to the things you don’t want to see, but you can’t close your heart to the things you don’t want to feel…
Alexis Summers is happily married and a mother of two gorgeous children. She’s been a stay-at-home mum for nine years now, but it’s time for a change.
Starting a new job with a prestigious hotel, she’s excited about her new career. Her boss, the hotel’s owner Bryce Clark, is rich, gorgeous, funny, single and, as Alexis quickly learns, a genuinely nice guy looking for his one true love.
He is also a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Alexis.
The intense chemistry between them is undeniable — but Alexis is happily married to Rick, and no matter how strong her feelings are for Bryce, she is adamant she will not betray her husband and family. She draws a line in the sand but finds it increasingly difficult not to cross. Will she succumb to temptation?

~Our Review~
Reviewer: Kaylene
Rating: 5 Stars

What a surprise this book was.  When I one clicked this I wasn’t sure how I would react to unfaithfulness in a marriage but how wrong was I.  This book is hot, so hot it was burning my fingers but I couldn’t put it down.
Alexis is happily married or so she thought to her husband, when Bryce rocks her world and turns it upside down.  Alexis started working again after having her children and on her first day spills coffee all over her new boss Mr Bryce Clark (hotness personified).  They seem to have an instant connection and she fights with her conscience about the feelings she is having for Bryce, after all, I reiterate, she’s happily married. 
There was some frustration in this book because I wanted them to get it on, but you know it’s so very wrong.  The emotion in this book at times had me wanting to turn the pages quickly but also throw it against the wall.
There are some laugh out loud funny moments, Alexis is a hoot.
I cannot wait for the second book in this series and I will be one clicking it as soon as its available.  Well done Ms Golland, your writing skills are exceptional and your sense of humour is fantastically fun to read.

~Interview with KM Golland~

We recently got the chance to ask KM Golland a few questions. Here's how it went!

Which writers have influenced you the most? 
I wouldn’t say that any particular writers have influenced me to write, as the inspiration to pen my first book pretty much came out of nowhere. There are authors who I admire and enjoy reading though, and they are Sylvia Day, John Marsden, Pepper Winters, Tiffany Reisz, Zack Love, and of course the legendary Dr Seuss.

What inspired your idea for this book? 
I think it was the aspiration to create a story that was a good balance of fantasy and real life. A story you could escape in yet relate to. I also wanted to write something sexy but that also made you laugh. I’m a huge advocate of a good snort outburst.

What issues do you think your book raises and how do you think it affects its readers? 
The most prominent issues, I think, are that of infidelity and temptation, which is what the title of the book suggests. A lot of people can be put off by such a topic. But this is where some of those real life elements I mentioned before come in to play.
Ignoring the evils of life, in my opinion, is naive. So I don’t omit them in my writing. But that doesn’t mean I glorify them either. I just accept that they are a part of our every day lives.

 How long did it take you to write this book? 
From the moment I opened my laptop and wrote ‘Chapter One’ until the moment I pressed that final full stop, it was just over one and a half months.
Being my first ever attempt at writing, how quickly this book was created even surprised me, LOL. Mind you it was a first draft and in need of A LOT of TLC.

What is your writing routine like and do you have a special place to write? 
I’m going to confess that my special writing place does not adhere to Occupational Health and Safety standards, being that I sit cross-legged on my living room sofa with my laptop. There is no office, no desk, no ergonomically designed chair; just me, my sofa and my laptop.

Is there any advice you would like to give someone who’d like to become a published writer? 
Be true to yourself and your own style. Don’t try and mimic others in the field. At the end of the day, a book will always speak for itself.
You have to have the ability to back yourself and know, to an extent, what you are getting into. Oh, and hire a professional editor to go through your MS with a fine toothed-comb. When I first self-published Temptation, I did not do that and it was the biggest mistake and subsequent lesson I have learned thus far.

When you are not writing what do you like to do? 
When I am not writing? What’s that? LOL. Can I rephrase this question? Okay, how about this: Before I became a writer... I loved what most wives and mothers love, spending quality time with their family. Going on holiday and short weekend trips to the beach. I’m also a big sports fan and love my Essendon Bombers and car racing.
Maybe when I am not so crazy busy, I can fit some of those things back into my life

What does your family think of your writing? 
My husband thinks it’s great, even though he has had to pick up a lot of the tasks that I no longer have time to do. He enjoys it when I read the books to him and also doesn’t mind the research I have to... um... look into. But we won’t go into that right now.
My son thinks it’s ‘cool’ that his mum is an author, and is forever telling anyone who will listen... which can be just a tad embarrassing at times. But my daughter probably hates it because she has suffered the most where my time and attention are concerned. I’m hoping that when she is old enough she will understand that Mummy is a busy writing bee.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? 
I never knew writing was something I wanted to do until I actually started doing it. Without trying to sound obnoxious, it just came naturally to me.
So I think it may have been the point where I read back my first chapter, smiled to myself, and said ‘That’s not bad for a novice, but more importantly, that was so much fun do.’

Do you hear from your readers and what kinds of things do they tell you? 
Yes, all the time. And I absolutely love it. It makes writing stories for people that much more enjoyable.
I try to respond to every message I receive or every comment I am tagged in on Facebook, but it is becoming increasingly hard. I did say at the very beginning of my writing career though, that I would put aside time every day in order to interact with my readers and fans, and I will endeavor to do that.
What do my readers say? That I’m awesomesauce and the Zeus of the author world... okay, well no they don’t exactly say THAT, but they do write and tell me how much they appreciated my books and want to know when they next instalments are due out. Oh, and a lot of my American readers tell me how much they love the Aussie-isms I use. Like ‘arse’ and ‘cuppa’.

What can we look forward to from you in the future? 
More books! More grey hairs! <-- not that anyone looks forward to those.
Basically, I plan to write until I am unable to do so. So keep an eye out for my upcoming releases.

And now for some non book related questions :)

What do you remember of your first kiss? 
It took be by complete surprise!

What was the most creative pick-up line that has been used on you or you used on someone else? 
You smell like trash, may I take you out?’ Yep... that was used on me at a local nightclub many years ago. I also feature it in my next release, Attraction.
Personally, I thought it was a great line and would’ve totally given the guy my number had I not been engaged and in love.

What do you do when you think no one is watching? 
Nothing I wouldn’t do when someone is watching, except maybe get undressed, LOL.

What are your favourite songs?  Do you have a playlist you listen to for inspiration? 
I am a playlist junkie and have a Spotify account, so please follow me.
As for favourite songs, I have MANY and mention a few in the Temptation Series. ‘November Rain’ by Guns N’ Roses, ‘Stairway to Heaven’ by Led Zeppelin, ‘Birth’ by Thirty Seconds to Mars and ‘Need You Tonight’ by INXS are just to name a few.

What was your favourite childhood book? 
Fox In Socks

What is your favourite addition to chocolate? 
*Shouty caps needed* PEANUT BUTTER!

Beside your own stories, what is your favourite series and who wrote it? 
Oooh that’s tough. There are so many awesome series out there and written by extremely talented authors. But the two series that never seem to leave my mind are The Original Sinners Series by fellow Harlequin author, Tiffany Reisz, and The Rock Chick Series by Kristen Ashley.

What would you be doing if you didn’t become an Author? 
Hmm... life has many twists and turns so I cannot answer that question with accuracy. But, if I was to hazard a guess, probably Conveyancing.

Thank you KM Golland!
