Cold Stone Touch

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** Kobo ** iTunes


Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay...

SCT available now


I’d remained in bed after that, trying to sort through the odd tingling in my chest. There was a slight smile on my lips, because Zayne…well, he’d made my day, but then I’d remember what Roth had said to me the night before and the smile would wash away as if it had never been there.

I probably needed to get used to the whiplash mood swings.

It wasn’t until after dinner that I decided to scrub a day’s worth of gunk off myself. Gingerly, I peeled the bandage off, happy to find that the cut in my arm was healing as expected. I didn’t need to cover it anymore. The arm was still tender, but the Warden blood in me was quickly undoing the damage from the iron.

After changing into fresh pj’s, like a total hermit, I padded over to my desk, where I’d left my cell phone. It had been on silent all day and when I tapped the screen, I wasn’t surprised to see a slew of texts from Stacey.

Where r u?

R u skipping, u ho?

A minute later: Your locker misses u. Guess u sick with the herp?

Oh my God. I laughed out loud, grinning as I thumbed through her texts. Our bio sub is still hot. U r missing this.

Bio is lonely.

My boobs miss u. How weird is that?

That was notably weird and yet not surprising.

If I get my cell taken from me, it’s ur fault.

Holy shit, Layla, where r u?!?

Air punched out of my lungs as I read the next text and the several following them.

U have no idea who just walked into bio!!!

Roth is here!

Holy Canola oil, why aren’t u here to witness this?

Ok. He says he had mono. Srlsy? Do people still get mono? And who in the duck was he kissing? A second later—Duck? I didn’t mean duck. That’s SO not what I meant, autocorrect.

Another text had come in about fifteen minutes after the last one. He asked where u were. I told him u joined a cult. I laughed. He didn’t.

Finally, the last text was to call her if I wasn’t dead.

“What in the Hell?” I tossed my cell onto the bed, mouth hanging open.


And don't forget! The choice is yours...

Beginning today you’ll have 3 weeks to visit the series website,, to take a poll and decide which guy Layla should ultimately choose in the final book in the trilogy, Every Last Breath.

At the end of 3 weeks, we will tally all the votes, and that’s when Jennifer L. Armentrout will start writing Every Last Breath. The guy who gets the most votes is the one Layla will pick.

To prevent early spoilers, we're not going to reveal who won the poll in advance…you’ll have to wait until Every Last Breath goes on sale on July 28th, 2015 to find out whether Zayne or Roth wins Layla in the end. We promise the book will be epic and definitely worth the wait!

Who do you want Layla to end up with? Go to and vote for your choice!

{Blog Tour: Review, Top 10 + Giveaway} of Alec by L.A. Casey

Alec by L.A. Casey

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
GENRE: Romance
THEME: Erotica, Mature

Keela Daley is the black sheep of her family. She has always come second to her younger cousin Micah. Even in the eyes of her mother, Micah shone bright, and Keela faded to black. Now, in adulthood, Micah is a bride-to-be and the spotlight is solely on her. Keela is a low priority…or so she thinks.

Alec Slater is a bachelor, never one to bed the same woman, or man, twice. He is a free agent who does what he pleases and answers to no one; that is until a fiery Irish redhead with a temper to match her hair colour knocks him on his arse. Literally.

She hates to admit it, but Keela needs a favour from the cocky Slater brother, a huge favour. She needs him to not only escort her to Micah’s wedding, but to also pose as her boyfriend. Alec agrees to help Keela, but has certain conditions for her to abide by. He wants her body and plans to have it before anyone can say I do.

What he doesn’t plan on is losing his heart as well as the possibility of losing his family when someone from his past threatens his future.

Alec owns Keela, and what Alec owns, Alec keeps.


After reading Dominic I felt it was going to be tough to beat the intense and hot romantic connection the leads had. Alec is a whole other ballpark, I had a bit of a love hate with Alec but I adored Keela because she’s just plain awesome.

Those who read the first book know about the Slater brothers, Alec is the older brother and was forced in becoming an escort after something Damien his other brother did, which got them in trouble. He has an interesting “appetite” and knows he has the charm.

Keela on the other hand I thought rocked, she has some majorly tough moments and is totally feisty. I knew she would be a good one to tame Alec and could challenge him into becoming a better guy. What was even more awesome was that she needed a date to her cousins wedding, which she’s dreading for many reasons. She asks Alec after being told by her friend to ask one of the brothers. I found all this hilarious and ballsy to ask a guy she didn’t know well. Thus Alec totally takes her up on the offer with a bit of incentive on his side; of course he wants something in return. But desperate times calls for desperate measures.

Anyways their chemistry was off the charts, there were moments I was laughing and moments I was fanning myself because the scene were that hot. But the Slater brother’s life is a dangerous life because of their past and it does catch up with them. There is a ton of drama and something the Alec does that actually made me lose all the connection that I started to like him for. Sadly I’m not keen on what he does even with the explanation.

Nonetheless I did enjoy this story because I wanted to see the brothers all have happiness. The romance is always awesome, as in the first book they are smoking in this one. The characters have a lot of depth and are nowhere near perfect, but it makes them real, which I like in stories. The ending I was happy with, I’m always going to root for these brothers and cant wait to see what happens next.

{Early Review} of Freed by Stacey Kennedy

Freed by Stacey Kennedy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Erotica, Mature, Romance. BDSM

Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.

Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive, he desires only to give her everything she craves.

NOTE: Freed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.


I’ve been so excited to get back into the Club Sin series by Stacey Kennedy for a while now, even more so to hopefully find a happy ending for dear Mary. What I liked about this story was that this book ventured out of Club Sin and more into the life outside of a Dom and his Sub. Mary is a dear sweet woman who is friends with the owner of club sin Dmitri and his sub Presley whom the readers meet in book one. I couldn’t wait to see how Mary finds her happiness after years of being without the one man she loved.

Freed follows Mary Schmidt, a doctor, mother and former submissive to her love Charles whom she lost to an illness many years ago. She lives her life still mourning his loss and happy to see her children living their lives and reaching for their dreams. That is until she meets Elliott, who reminds her so much of her connection with her Husband and awakens the submissive that she had forgotten about so long ago.

Mary is a woman who has lived a wonderful life, she found the one man whom she loved every moment of every day, and he gave her children and adored her to no end. But when he passed her life was a void, she was a great doctor but she was missing that lifestyle they shared so deeply. A submissive always yearns for her Dom, that returns to her in the form of another man Elliott. It was interesting to see the perspective of a seasoned Submissive, someone who has live and loved the life. I don’t know much about the life myself but with Kennedy’s writing you can feel the love and loss, the connection and heartbreak and what it means to have this type of relationship. I loved seeing what Mary had with Charles but adored that she could find it again in Elliott.

Elliott is a good man, he knows he feels a deep connection with Mary, but is also unsure how she will react with him. He slowly learns about her past, her fears, her loss, and that maybe he can be the one to fill her heart again. I adored his connection with Mary, it was hard to picture her with anyone but Charles because the readers get to see in flashbacks their deep connection, but Elliott is everything she needs.

Overall this was a great addition to the series, I met Mary in the first book and get small glimpses at her life and lost love. It was really nice to see her character happy and get an idea of what she once had. The romance and heat between Elliott and Mary is smoking hot, I had to fan myself a couple times with the intensity. Kennedy does a fantastic job once again emotionally connecting her readers to her characters, I really felt everything that Mary was going through, I wanted her to find happiness again. This could easily be read as a stand-alone but to know more about Mary, I recommend read the other books in the series first.


This is an adult novel meant for mature readers over the age of 18, for its sexual content. Fans of Christina Lauren’s Beautiful Bastard series and Love, In English by Karina Halle will want to get their hands of Freed by Stacey Kennedy.

{Review} of Slade by Laurann Dohner

Slade by Laurann Dohner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: Paranormal
THEME: Erotica, Mature, Romance

Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver—but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man Trisha will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland…he doesn’t even remember her!

The nosy new doctor wants to know all about the breeding habits between humans and Species. Slade proposes a hands-on education but she’s not interested in a one-night stand. He can’t offer more because he’s haunted by the memory of a woman he once tried to claim. He’s shocked when he realizes they are one and the same. He’s blown it—she’ll never give him a chance now.

But, when her life is in danger, he’s the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.


I read the first in the New Species a while ago; I loved the idea of living in a world where a new species was introduced, them being human with animal traits. The controversy, the unique habits of the people who were tested on, and how each would learn to live now that they were free from being experimented on, was so intriguing. I couldn’t wait to continue the series and learn more about them.

Slade follows Trisha Norbit who is a doctor working for the New Species. Before she worked at a hospital where she met Slade, who was one of many New Species who were save from the scientist who experimented on them. Years later she is now working at the New Species headquarters, hoping to discover more about them and if they can eventually have children. But while on a scheduled trip for a meeting with the leader of the New Species; she along with her guard are run off the road and hunted. Her guard Slade the very man she met years ago, is her only safety and he will do anything to keep her alive, even if it means he has to get close to a human like her.

Trisha is a very dedicated doctor and is intrigued with the New Species and if there is a possibility of breeding between humans and them. From what she knows if that New Species are infertile. Aldo that the first human and NS couple are keeping mum about their relationship. But all her intrigue goes out the door when her life becomes endangered because she’s is targeted for being a human helping the NS. I liked Trisha’s character because she’s all about the science and understanding ways to help the NS, but she also is extremely attracted to Slade, the one NS she met years ago who kissed the bejesus out of her. The duo get stuck in the middle of nowhere with hunters who are anti-new species after them. Her interactions and chemistry with Slade are fun and hot. Trisha has so many questions and Slade is interested in human life and mating of course. In the end Trisha realizes that her connection all those years ago, is still there floating between them.

Slade is a major kick butt rough around the edges type of guy. Totally alpha male, he is mixed with a canine and has really protective instincts. What I like about the New Species is that they are human, but have slightly different looks that make them stand out among human males. Their noses are wider; their eyes are different colors, and their body build is massive along with speed, strength, etc. Slade is very protective and caring when it comes to Trisha, they bond really quickly and need each other to survive being hunted. I love how Slade cared for her, he does make some mistakes but in the end figures out how to make up for it.

Overall this series is great, I love the world building and the political sides of humans that are for and against the New Species. The romance is definitely intense, of course smoking hot and Slade really knows how to make a girl want to faint. The dynamic between the two leads is amazing and I could see that Dohner knows hows to keep the romance and suspense going no matter the situation. Slade introduces more characters and also continues to show what happened to Fury and his mate from the first book. I’m totally looking forward continuing the series and seeing which kick butt male is next.

Second! Is the phenomenal Keri Arthur and her best character Riley Jensen who has a little bit of both awesomeness of vampire and werewolf. I like this series because Riley is a super sleuth in a paranormal world working only her equally cool brother and a seriously hot vampire. Each book always has some seriously intense twist and was great from beginning to end.
Lastly is the YA/Adult novel and still going series Poison Study by Maria V Snyder. While working at borders I discovered her books in the YA section but she wrote the series also in adult.

I married a korean haha!

3. I love old movies, classics like Roman Holiday, Dial M for Murder and the Original Sabrina. Pretty much anything with Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, and Humphrey Bogart. One of my all time favorite classic movies

4. I love rainy days! I live in sunny California so we don't get much of those if any. Especially now that we are in a drought. But I was luck enough to get married on the last big rain storm we had here almost four years ago! So it was a lucky day to get married in the rain!

{Author News} Support The Nothing! Last in The Between trilogy

I also enjoy support authors whenever I can, but even more so when an author loves their series so much but needs the help to finish it for their fans.

Author Kerry Schafer has a dream to finish her trilogy and has started a Kickstarter to help support her in her goal to complete it. 

If you want to know more about her Kickstarter series click here to help support: The Nothing Kickstart

The kickstarter ends November 11th

Between Blurb:
Vivian Maylor can't sleep. Maybe it's because she just broke up with her boyfriend and moved to a new town, or it could be the stress of her new job at the hospital. But perhaps it's because her dreams have started to bleed through into her waking hours.

All of her life Vivian has rejected her mother's insane ramblings about Dreamworlds for concrete science and fact, until an emergency room patient ranting about dragons spontaneously combusts before her eyes--forcing Viv to consider the idea that her visions of mythical beasts might be real.

And when a chance encounter leads her to a man she knows only from her dreams, Vivian finds herself falling into a world that seems strange and familiar all at once--a world where the line between dream and reality is hard to determine, and hard to control..
