Blog Tour & Review: Black Horse by Addison Kline

Title : BLACK HORSE
Author : Addison Kline
Genre : Romantic Suspense

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22064966-black-horse
“What would you do if the only man you ever loved was the son of the man that murdered your parents?”
In Addison Kline’s fiery romantic suspense novel, Averi Ford’s future collides with her past with ferocious intensity. Averi Ford and Colt McClain have loved each other since they were children. They both come from a broken past. Colt’s mother died when he was young, and Averi’s parents were taken from her at the tender age of five. The same man is responsible for both of their broken childhoods: Tom “Black Horse” McClain. He also happens to be Colt’s father. Now twenty years after the crimes that fractured both of their hearts, Black Horse is getting out of jail and he’s coming after the girl who testified against him: Averi, herself. Colt wants to hide her, but Averi refuses to run.
“Our past does not own us, and we owe it to our hearts to show the world that love can arise from the darkest of places. We just have to survive Black Horse to tell the tale.”

 

 Addison Kline has written an action fueled romantic suspense book that will set you on the edge of your seat and have you wanting to know ‘what’s next’.The opening scenes will draw you in and is a definite page-turner. The relationships are well thought out and throughout the books you can tell that the author has set up the supporting characters to feature in future books. She has cleverly woven little snippets of background information without taking away from the main story.

Averi and Colt have a bond that is indescribable. It’s solid and real. I’m not sure how exactly Averi got away with the relationship for so long without her brothers actually kicking up more of a fuss, but that seems minor once we get into the grit of the story. I found this story to be about redemption, revenge, family, sticking together, and bonds that can never be broken. The middle of the book is a turn back in time that leads you through a series of events that seem like snapshots of a camera. They are short, sharp, but full of information that push you through the timeline. Cleverly done. There were a few twists and turns I didn’t see coming, for which I am greatful to the author for! Black Horse is one mean S.O.B, a sick twisted individual that doesn’t deserve to live. It’s up to every person who has ever been affected by him to stand together as a unit and take him down…. But can they do that without tearing themselves apart? You’ll have to read to find out!

MyReviewBadge
 This book comes right off the tails of a viewing of Furious 7 (the newest installment of the Fast & Furious series). I absolutely love the movies and the family aspect of them, and I think it parallels in this book. I wasn’t a big fan of the female main character. Kaidence came across as quite immature and I found it hard to believe her age and success. However, I commend the author on featuring a BBW heroine. Titan surely sounded as hot as he was made out to be, and I’d love to see the team in real life! The author does a nice job of integrating all of the fast cars and fancy things, so if you are a car lover you are sure to like this book! Congratulations to the author on her debut novel.

Book Review: Undercover by Kasey Millstead

Undercover Cover

Genre: Erotica. Romantic Fiction. Contemporary Romance.

In out, in out. I watch my cock sliding in and out of the club whore’s pussy. My gut tightens, not with desire in the lead up to my climax, but in disgust. I squeeze my eyes shut, praying the image isn’t burned into my retinas. I hate my fucking job…

When FBI Special Agent, Roman ‘Oak’ Drake, infiltrated the Zephyrs MC, he expected to find a lot of things – all of them illegal. What he didn’t expect to find was the beautiful brunette serving drinks behind the bar at Club Z.

Willa Burke spends her nights serving drinks at Club Z. It’s not the life she imagined for herself, but sometimes you don’t get a choice; you just have to do what you can to get by.

Outside of working for them, she’d never shown an interest in the Zephyrs.

Until she met Oak. The tall, wide, muscled man with skin the color of burned caramel and eyes a shade lighter than melted chocolate.
Teaser Undercover
She wants him.

He wants her.

She’s good and clean.

He’s good and clean pretending to be bad and dirty for the sake of his career.

When Oak brings the Zephyrs to their knees, will it also mean the end for Willa and him? Or, will it strengthen their bond?

Undercover is a stand alone novel with a happy-ever-after.

MyReviewBadge

Ahhh, this was a great in-between book. By that I mean it was a really good, quick read. It was full of enough action, drama, and oh my where-is-the-fan hot scenes!!! What I really liked about it was how the author played out her characters, without over analyzing or describing.

 

I was/am a huge Sons of Anarchy fan (what can I say, Charlie Hunnam….actually..say no more) so whenever I see a story come out that is Motorcycle Club themed I want to dive in, but I’m wary. There is a particular sensitivity that needs to happen. The world of MCs are a private one and can come across and particularly cliché, or unrealistic (in as much as you can be in made up fiction world). Millstead did a great job by keeping the “MC” aspect out of it, instead concentrating on the relationship development between the two main characters, Oak and Willa. Oak was menacing enough to still be lovable. Willa wasn’t a wallflower, although at times I was confused at her ability to ‘get over things quickly. The author pulls off the story by offering alternative POVs so the reader gets inside both main characters heads. This really helped with story flow, especially with the “undercover” aspect. I also appreciated that it is a stand-alone novel and without any ‘spoilers’ the characters get a HEA.
This is my first Kasey Millstead book, but I really liked the flow of her writing and her words so I’m sure I’ll be grabbing more!

Book Review: Outside the Ropes by Ashley Claudy

OTRcover60956-smallGenre: New Adult. Romance. Suspense. Action.

Regan Sommers spent her life fighting. Fighting foster parents, kids in the group home, and classmates. But the night she has to fight for her life changes everything.
Now, she’s fighting for money in the ring, and from the first punch she’s addicted. Every addiction has a price though, and this one is the gym’s star boxer, Gage Lawson. He may come in an enticing tattooed package, but his demands are more than she can handle.
OTR
The responding officer from that night, Anthony Fields, comes with no demands. He want’s whatever she’s willing to give, and Regan can handle that. She can definitely handle him.
But no help comes string free, and Regan’s not the only one with a hard past and scars to cover. The life she was trying to escape is nothing compared to the danger she’s in the middle of now, and she can’t fight her way out.

***Reader please be aware: Story contains mature content such as: Drugs, sex, abuse, and explicit language that may be upsetting for some.****

MyReviewBadge

The author does a great job weaving multiple story lines through out this book, suspense and action included. There were a few angles that I wished had been resolved by the end, or had a little more depth put into them, but for the majority of the book I wasn’t worrying about that.

Regan’s character was likable, a strong female, who also has enough vulnerability that the reader can relate to her. In some of the ways she acted she showed she wasn’t the complete tough girl, which added depth to her character. The way shIMG_20150217_142044e craves attention didn’t make her less likable, in fact it shows that being damaged allows her to get through life the way she has.

At first I was confused by Gage, but at the same time intrigued and sucked into his demeanour and appeal. Throughout the story he remains a mystery, but at the same time you also feel like whatever his motivation is, it’s for the best. Who doesn’t love a hot boxer who knows goes all protective, but not in an aggressive and possessive way!?OTR4

I was hoping some of the loose ends would be tied together, but I compliment the author in giving the reader an experience that will have them hanging for the next installment. In the end, I really couldn’t put the book down and now I really can’t wait for the next book! *warning, there is a bit of a cliff hanger…..

New Release & Review – Anyone? by Angela Scott

ANYONE Cover SMALL  Genre: Young Adult. Action. Drama.

The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….

…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.

Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no callie catchoice—he must find her missing brother.

Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.

But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed to do if he never comes back?

Surprisingly, I wasn’t sure how I was going to with this book. I’ve been watching so much The Walking Dead and Zombie or Apocalypse stuff of late that I was sure it would all blend in together. Luckily, Angela Scott has done a wonderful job of creating a worlds end that left me begging for more! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I think this is my “first apocalyptic” story I’ve read (as I said, watched is different). The story starts with an action packed scene of Tess frantically racing around her house as the world begins to end. Her dad takes her to a bomb shelter he’s prepared, (cue flashbacks of Doomsday Preppers! – that show!!!!!)  and then he leaves with the promise of coming back…but he never does….

IMG_2598From this moment, the reader is taken on a journey with Tess, as she navigates burning suns, sink holes, massive tornadoes and hail storms. All with her kitten, Callie, in tow. Along the way she meets a couple of characters who helped to keep the story line fresh, and interesting. I really love how the author has fleshed this story out, and although you might think you know what’s happening, suddenly there’s another corner turned and you’re left wondering. This book has given me a severe book hangover. I stayed up late into the night reading it because I had to know what happened in the end. Grab it now, and read, because I’d love to know your thoughts.

Apparently she also writes zombie stories…I must get onto these!

About The Author:
I hear voices. Tiny fictional people sit on my shoulders and whisper their stories in my ear. Instead of medicating myself, I decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. I’m not crazy. I’m an author.

For the most part, I write contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraleme3d out of control, I found myself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West—and loving it. My zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, I wouldn’t suggest it.

I live on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. I graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of my love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. I can’t spell, and grammar is my arch nemesis. But they gave me the degree, and there are no take backs.

As a child, I never sucked on a pacifier; I chewed on a pencil. I’ve been writing that long. It has only been the past few years that I’ve pursued it professionally, forged relationships with other like-minded individuals, and determined to make a career out of it.

 REVIEW:

The first three chapters of this book is a whirlwind of action as the book is set up in a paranormal world of wolves and packs at war. Be sure to read them for free, I’m fairly certain you’ll want to grab the whole book to see what happens!

This young adult paranormal romance was captivating, and really sucked me in. The author has a great style of writing, and I often forgot I was reading a “young adult/teen” genre. The prose was well developed, and the story line was captivating and had me up until the early hours of the morning. Katalina has many struggles to face all of a sudden, and the way she handles them is up to the help of a wolf from the rival pack. Their story and the relationships in the book are well-developed. The supporting characters were a valuable asset to the storyline, and I enjoyed the set up of pack relations, politics, actions, and resolution. Reading this book will leave you satisfied, as the author does a wonderful job of creating a story arc that loops around and finishes without any cliff-hangers. Also – LOVE the cover!!!!

New Release & Review – Through The Fire by Michelle Irwin

BDP BADGE 1Bottom Drawer Publications is proud to present Through the Fire, book one in the New Adult Paranormal series Daughter of Fire, by Michelle Irwin

Ever since Clay, a soldier for an organization tasked with ridding the world of non-humans, stumbled upon the secret of her birth, Evie’s been on the run. Now he’s back, and she’s unprepared as he forces his way into her heart.

TTFPolaroid

 Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

Evie Meyers’ life is one spent on the run. Every minute of every day, her life is in danger if anyone should suspect the truth about her ancestry. Her father was willing to risk everything to keep the truth hidden, even from her, but the lies he fabricated were exposed when her high school crush, Clay Jacobs, inadvertently stumbled upon her secret. His discovery puts Evie at risk from a secret organization tasked with washing the world clean of nonhumans—and Clay is one of its deadliest soldiers. Forced into a war she doesn’t understand, all because of what she is, Evie is left with no choice but to flee with her father to escape persecution.

When Clay reappears in her life, battle scarred and mysterious, Evie is unprepared and terrified as he forces his way back into her heart. When the battle catches up with her, and a tragic accident tears apart the peace she discovered, she finds herself alone and without the protection of her father, or her lover. Now, she needs to keep her secrets hidden and learn to survive on her own in a world that wants her dead, all while searching for the missing piece of her heart.

I have to say, I have been anticipating this book for awhile now. I knew it was being written, but didn’t quite understand what it would be about! For a first time author, Michelle has proved to herself, and her readers, that she is a force to be reckoned with.

Through the Fire is the first in a series, and although I’m not a huge fan of starting a series knowing that other books aren’t complete, or have a set release, this was an exciting book on my to be read list! It’s set in a paranormal world, which in my opinion can be a tricky thing to do. Being the first in a series, there are snippets of characters introduced, that I am very keen to understand further in future books, I certainly hoped they’re developed further! I also think the interactions between the “Rain family” was too brief, but I’m sure that’s coming… Paranormal worlds can often come off as being a bit complicated and messy, however, Michelle has managed to create a world the reader can immerse themselves into, without confusion.

She weaves in the legends of the old-timers, such as the fae, that we all know, as well as creating her own world, involving non-humans, with the ability to create fire (You’ll get it once you start reading), and an elite group of people, known as “The Rain” who hunt down all the paranormal creatures of the world, believing they are all evil. The heart of the book is the Romeo and Juliet relationship between Evie (a phoenix) and Clay (The Rain). They meet as teens, but then, we don’t see any interaction until they are older, Evie having fled under instructions from her protective father. Their relationship starts where they left off, however a tragedy soon tears them apart. Throughout their time apart, instead of thriving, we see the main character struggle with her identity, ability to develop relationships, and life-as something other than ‘normal’. I really appreciated the fact that the author showed these struggles and lead the reader through a timeline that wasn’t hurried, nor too slow. clay1

The author has blended in enough action, romance, and mystery to make this a brilliant read. The push and pull of the relationship between the main characters, along with the timeline of events, is cleverly composed and smoothly executed. Warning – the ending “may” cause you to throw the book and cuss the author…but in a really good way! GO, read it and tell me what you think!

Read this book if you’re after a new world to immerse yourself into. A story of a girl who’s lost and struggling with a power inside her, and of a boy who could be her saviour, if only he wasn’t her sworn enemy.

I can’t wait to read the next installment.
