Fierce Synopsis

Tori’s MMA career was taking off, until she beat the wrong man. Her training partner, nursing a bruised ego, snapped—shattering her trust and confidence.
Three years later, Tori’s keeping her fists to herself as she struggles to put herself through college. But when a group of gangbangers hassle her at work, old habits kick in and her fists fly. Max Estrada, a frequent diner customer, steps in and gets them out of hot water, but Tori is still fired… days before tuition is due.
With no other option, she’s forced to take a desk job at her old pounding grounds, where her demons still haunt the cage and the temptation to go glove-to-glove with familiar pro-fighter, Max Estrada, is too much. The sexy Colombian draws her back into the world of MMA and revives her dreams of becoming a professional face-puncher—until Will, her old partner and current Middleweight Champion, struts back into the gym. The secret they share is an unexpected liability to his career, and he’s determined to keep her silent.
With her life on the ropes, Tori will have to face the past for a shot at winning back her future, or carry the weight of a loss even greater than before.

Review and Give-Away: Deep Surrendering – Episode 5 – Chelsea M Cameron

Received from InkSlingerPR

Received from InkSlingerPR

Title: Deep Surrendering
Series: Episode 5
Author: Chelsea M Cameron
Publisher: Self Published
Publication Date: 27 July 2014
Source: Review Copy
Rating: 3.5/5

Synopsis from Amazon

With thousands of miles separating them, will Fin and Marisol be able to keep their relationship alive? Or will the distance finally come between them? 

REVIEW 

Please bear in mind that this is the fifth episode in this serialization, therefore IMPOSSIBLE to review without spoilers for previous events within the plot.

With Finn now abroad with work for 8 weeks things are a little awkward at first with the phone and video chats. Seeing Finn’s sweet side more than normal really endeared him to me, even he slightly skanky secret didn’t put me off. It just made me wonder what on earth really happened to Finn and what role does his father have to play in it. Revelations about Finn’s family life round out some of his personality. No wonder he is screwed up. Yet you have to feel that he has made the decision to shape his life-like that, he takes ownership of the twisted. SO is it possible to break down his barriers and at the end of the day, does he really want them down. For me I think that is the crux of the story. Is Finn willing to reset himself, not unlike Christian Grey in respect of attaining emotional growth.

This episode focuses more on Marisol’s family dynamic and the interactions with her best friend. Having grown-up in a world similar to Finn’s, Marisol has distanced herself from the privileged (shallow) lifestyle of her parents. Marisol is very independent and self-reliant, she prides herself on her empathy, work ethic and organisational abilities. If you think about it, she likes control in her life as much as Finn does in the bedroom. While comparing her life to Finn’s we can see that there is little hope for Finn ever escaping the tight reins of his father. I can’t help but wonder where on earth Finn and Marisol are heading as he has no escape and she won’t go back to that sort of lifestyle for anything. Add in growing emotions on both sides and its a volcano ready to explode.

I’ve got to be honest; these episodes are killing me, I’m not coping well with the gap in finding out what happens next. While I like the tension in theory, the reality is IT’S DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!

So thanks Chelsea for the HUGE freaking CLIFFHANGER at the end of this episode. *sigh*

About ADDICTED

Ethan Frost returns in the breathtaking conclusion to New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Tracy Wolff’s seductive novel Ruined—perfect for fans of Release Me and Bared to You.

As Chloe Girard discovers, there’s love . . . and then there’s addiction.

Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He’s rich, gorgeous, powerful, one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.

But that’s not why I’m with him.

I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me. The way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.

But sometimes it terrifies me how much I crave him, how much I need him just to breathe. I always thought it would be my past that ruined us, but there’s a darkness in Ethan I never dreamed existed. Can we survive as his secrets surface—threatening to unravel us both?

Praise for RUINED:

Tracy Wolff knows how to steam up the pages, and she proves it again in Ruined. If you’re looking for a hot read, curl up with Ethan Frost.” —New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner

About Tracy Wolff

Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

 The Outsider Chronicles, #1

New Adult/Adult Contemporary

Releasing August 12, 2014

Cover designed by Okay Creations

Knox Jagger. The name inspires resent in every male at Sinclair University, want in every female, and contempt in Charlie Chase.

Charlie can be summed up in three words: independent, independent, and independent. To Charlie, Knox epitomizes everything that’s wrong with college males: prolific one-night stands, drunken senseless fights, and a body that hints at prioritizing gym time over study time.

As an up-and-coming writer for Sinclair University’s newspaper, Charlie’s tasked with getting to the bottom of who’s been dropping little white pills into girls’ drinks at parties. In an ocean of All-American boys sporting polo shirts and innocent smiles, Knox is the obvious suspect. As evidence piles up against the bad boy of Sinclair, Charlie becomes more and more certain it isn’t Knox. But when her drink is dosed at a party and she wakes up on Knox’s couch the next morning, Charlie’s left with more questions than answers when it comes to Knox Jagger.

How can Charlie ever hope to uncover the truth behind a guy so closed off he’s become . . .

Hard Knox.

BOOK SUMMARY

Children’s librarian by day. Romance novelist by night.
British single father.
Someone else is writing this love story…

Blair Walton isn’t your average curvaceous tattooed children’s librarian. She’s also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her BFF Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she’s afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death . . . if she knew about them. That’s why she and Raine write in secret.

On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and “do some research”. Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He’s British, looks fabulous in a suit, has glorious blue eyes and gets bonus points for being an amazing single dad to his adorable son, Drake. But what starts out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. And Blair’s not the only one with secrets.
