Book Blurb:

From authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert comes a smoldering standalone enemies to lovers romance that will, ahem…check all your boxes.


I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.


Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.



I was so excited to read this book!  
I've been a fan of Chelle Bliss from before the Men of Inked series. 
This was so different from anything she has ever written and I know this is a collaboration but it was phenomenal!
The characters were energetic and the banter between them was sexy and sometimes infuriating but that 
just made the story so much more addictive. The story was actually released 
at a perfect time.  
During this time when all the political crap is going on TV it was really refreshing to read something that is NOTHING like that. 
Jude was so down to earth, 
real and sexy as hell! 
His dirty mouth made him even hotter. 
He stood up for everything he believed in and even though him and Reagan were supposed to be sworn enemies the magnetic sexual attraction between them 
definitely squashed that idea. 
I mean it's really hard for two people that are physically attracted to each other to be in the situation that they were put in and not want to jump each other's bones you know what I'm sayin? 

Teaser 6 copy

Reagan was a sassy little thing 
that packed a big punch. She knew her strategy and was prepared to crush Jude. 
Until she met him in person and then everything was out the window.
She lost her cool on more than on occasion.
I liked that she was not weak and timid.
My favorite thing about her is that she cussed like a sailor!  
I mean that's really who she was even though she was a politician she had a potty mouth.
I think honestly with politicians or any type of person that is in the public eye; everyone forgets that they are human too.
Basically when it comes to these two it is pure human animalistic magnetic attraction that brings them together. 
Democratic or Republican 
you can't stop that!
 I mean that's on the surface, but there are a lot of stolen moments they share that build this Enemies to Lover's Story.  
The way the story is told, the anticipation keeps you on the edge of your seat and the writing is perfection. The supporting characters added the depth and suspense the story was built on.  
It was everything and more than
 I wanted it to be.
I started this book and went from 0 to 45% and like a couple hours and the only reason why I didn't get a hundred percent is because my eyes closed on their own behalf un-benounced to my mind because I was so not ready for that. 
This story just grabs you and captivates you  and you Can.NOT. STOP. it's like Pringles once you pop you can't stop!
Don't think twice about this one Honey just go on ahead and one click this bitch and then stop by and thank me. 
I will be waiting to tell you

~5 Stars Aren't ENOUGH~One by Jewel E.Ann

releaseblitz 2CoverOne copy

Title: One

 Author: Jewel E Ann Genre: 

Romantic Comedy Release Date: July 28th, 2016



Lake Jones is a cover girl for cutting-edge prosthetic legs, a binge-watcher of Netflix, known to spy on her neighbor through her door’s peephole, and fond of laser games with her hairless cat. She’s also a bit sexually-frustrated. Until … God bestows a breath of mercy upon her in the form of Minnesota’s NFL starting quarterback. But this gift is no stranger. Lake met Cage Monaghan three years earlier. It was one day. One moment. One kiss that resurrected her dreams of finding love. His dimpled smile distracts from his imperfections, which include: a love for country music, fishing, and a feline-hating girlfriend. When life finally gives them their chance, it’s a humorous and heart-wrenching journey to find their place in the world. "We would be Cage and Lake. We would be unpredictable. We would be reckless. We would give normality the middle finger.” ***This book is a standalone. However, it is HIGHLY recommended that any readers who have not, but may consider, reading the Jack & Jill Series, do so before reading this book. It contains spoilers to Jack & Jill.

Jewel E. Ann has outdone herself yet again. After reading the Jack & Jill series I didn't think it was possible but she succeeded. 

One was spectacular!!

 I'm on cloud nine now! I'm so in love with these characters, not just Lake and Cage but everyone from the Jack & Jill series.

Before reading One I strongly suggest that you read the Jack & Jill series. 

It's a must! 

Because of the story and the fabulous characters. 

You will love One even more. 

I sure as hell did. I fell in love with the characters all over again. 

It also made me appreciate 

Ann's brilliant mind. 

Her writing and storytelling 

is in a league of its own. 

Even the simplest words evoked so many emotions within me. 

It's incredible!

 I kept highlighting page after page. 

Her words were that addictive and magical. 

I felt hypnotized cause I wouldn't or couldn't take my eyes off the pages, afraid I would miss a word or a sentence.

Lake and Cage's love story was nothing short of a masterpiece! They were phenomenal. 

I loved how Cage SAW Lake for her beauty, 

for who she was and not her disability. 

The same can be said for Lake. Cage was her one chance for love again and in her eyes he wasn't the big hot shot NFL star. They were just Lake and Cage. Their love was inspiring and so god damn beautiful. Their relationship was intense, romantic and funny as hell. I easily felt their chemistry when they first met in Dawn Of Forever. It was even more apparent in One, which only made me giddy as hell. I loved that it was told in both Lake and Cage's POV. Their love was intoxicating and all consuming. Every moment in this story was important and earth shattering. I appreciated and loved the references to when they first met. It also played a huge part in there relationship. Just genius!

I was happy that I got more of Luke and Jessica. More than I could even imagine. So damn satisfied. Also another reason to read the Jack & Jill series.

Jewel E. Ann is a brilliant storyteller. I've read five books of hers and I'm just in awe of her talent. She's a genius with words, knows how to captivate me and tickle my taste buds just the right way. 

In my eyes One is a masterpiece! My masterpiece! I loved every thing about this story and its characters. It was beautifully written. I wanted to lick the words off the pages. One deserves more than five stars. It's just that good! It's phenomenal!

Review Post~Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen

The new series is set in Vermont. 
True North is populated by the tough, outdoorsy mountain men that populate the Green Mountain State. They raise cows and they grow apples. They chop a lot of wood, especially when they need to blow off steam. 
(Beards are optional but encouraged.)

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the orchard.

The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they’d shared a couple of steamy nights together. But that was a lifetime ago.

At twenty-seven, Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, three siblings and a dotty grandfather. He doesn’t have time for the sorority girl who’s shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.

Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder’s travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay—a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way.

They’re adversaries. They want entirely different things from life. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey’s top secret enchilada sauce, and then some.

This was story was just what I needed to read in this sweet summer time. 
My first book from Sarina Bowen and judging by this book, not my last. 
I was so entertained by 
Audrey, Griff and his wonderful family. 

I liked everything about the grumpy 
yet very sexy farmer Griff. 
He encompassed everything a real farmer was and how dedicated 
he was to that life and his family. 
Audrey won me over as well with her absentee mother, but was one hell of a fighter when it came to 
what she wanted in life.
Their relationship was funny and sexy and I liked that they had history together. 
That made their attraction more believable and it resonated with me. 
The secondary characters were fabulous. 
I was intrigued by Jude, Zach and the entire Shipley family. 
They all made Bittersweet work 
and gave it heart and charms. 
Made me smile, big time.
I would have liked less food descriptions, at one point I almost yawned out loud because it was a part of every conversation. 
I love food but it was a tad too much.
 Other than that it was an amazing story with lovable characters. 
The writing was great and 
so was the pace of the story. 
I'm definitely going to read Jude's story.

I have followed this author since she wrote her debut Tears Of Tess. 
It blew me away!!! 
I knew great things would 
always come from her an undoubtedly they surely have. 
It's crazy because I always think at the end if each book I read of hers that she can't possibly out do "that series/or book" and then I stand corrected over and over again. 
There are only a handful of authors that obtain this rank for me 
and she is one of them!!! 
I just finished Pennies and I know as a blogger I shouldn't  torture  myself. 
I should have waited till they were all out before I started but I love this job of giving authors exposure way too much, but I'm dying right now. 
That was so raw and I feel splayed like a butterflied steak on the grill. I
'm reeling  and my heart is pounding. 
I want Dollars so bad I  can taste it!

I was taken back Again by how well she captured and described Pimlico's experience. 
It was uncanny! 
I'm just shaking my head like FUCK there aren't words to 
describe how I feel.
This is a story of transition and survival. This is not a love story, nor for the meek and weak hearted. 
It's raw, painful and 
down right absurd at times. 
It's reality honey and not one 
anyone of us wants to live through.
The topic she chose is not one that is often talked about, 
not in the US anyway. 
It's something every single person takes for granted on a daily basis without even realizing it.
Pimlico was a phenomenal woman. 
Her strength was incredible. 
I don't mean her physical strength her inner strength, her will. 
To live, to die, to die, to survive,  to just be 
is something that deserves 
an Academy Award. 
Her master, was a sadistic, evil, dark Mutherfucker!!! 
The darkest!!! 
He holds ranks right up there with the Devil himself!
 Never ever the kind of thing you would want to encounter in a thousand lives. 
I say thing because, I doubted he was human at times. 
I guess the best way to describe him was a sociopath. 
Yep that pretty much sums him up.
Then there is Mr. Prest, I don't  know yet whether he is good or bad? 
pennies c2.jpg
I will say he is definitely a mystery. 
One that piqued my 
interest rather heavily.  
He invoked feelings from everyone who encountered him myself included. 
He's magnetic. 
Don't get it twisted, he is certainly one to fear, but how much? 
Only time will tell. 
This story will eat you alive. It will evade your head, 
until you reach the end. 
EVEN then you'll want more!!!
I have Thank Pepper for sharing her impeccable gift of writing.
 I hope she believes in herself with as much determination as 
the characters she creates!


teaser 3.jpg

Fuck this.
I stalked forward.
My hand came up.
The urge to soothe her catapulted my fingers to her cheek. My skin erupted from her delicate heat. I’d already had my single touch when I’d petted her hair. I wasn’t permitted a second.
But it didn’t stop me.
One second, she stood close, arching her chin at the door.
The next, she was across the cage, flying into a stack of boxes that tumbled in a clatter of butcher knives, butter knives, and sharp forks.
Her eyes turned luminous in the gloom, locking on mine with rage.
I’d forgotten myself by feeling sorry for this beaten wraith, but she hadn’t forgotten her overwhelming hatred of men.
I didn’t look away. But I didn’t explain myself, either.
I’d borrowed her for the night. If I wanted to touch her, I could. The fact that she’d leapt away meant I could report her to her master and have her punished.
Or you could punish her instead.
The distance between us grew thicker as we breathed fast.
I waited…wanting to know just how deep her education in pleasure flowed. Tearing her gaze from mine, she swallowed hard. Piece by piece, she hid her loathing, replacing it with reluctant acceptance.
Inching closer, her toes nudged aside sharp blades as she made her way to me and fell to her knees on the cold concrete.
Half of me jolted with insane lust. Most of me shied away with repulsion as her straggly hair covered her face but not before I saw the twisted disgust and echoing despair.
“Get up,” I murmured. Even though my voice was low, the cavern of the garage amplified it, layering it with bite.
Instantly, she swooped up. The crackle of her joints and misused cartilage in her bones sounded like tiny gunfire.
“Don’t kneel. Not in here.”
