✨ “The Last Hour” Release Blitz ✨

Title: The Last Hour
Author: Tara Brown
Genre: YA Dystopian
From the trees, I can smell them—smell their fear.
They’re scared as they scurry like animals.
They look different now.
Clothes are ripped.
Hair is dirty.
It’s not them I’m watching for.
They don’t know it, but I’m watching over them.
They move silently, not making noise.
It’s a different world.
Everything is quiet.
The prey moves differently here.
The others listen—always listening.
Silence was survival.
But what are we all surviving for?
I believe growing up in a really small town gives a person a little advantage when it comes to the imagination. You need one or you go mad.
Needless to say, mine saved me. After it got me into trouble first, that is. That’s the problem with a vivid imagination, all the lies you tell.
I am happily married with two daughters.
I have two giant dogs, two savage cats, and a penchant for a glass of red.
Also, I drag my bread through the sauce. I can’t help myself, bread is life.
According to my age, I am meant to be a responsible adult, but it isn’t going well at all. I would still head off to Hogwarts tomorrow and I suspect there isn’t a single wardrobe I haven’t crept into, hoping to find the door to Narnia. And don’t even get me started on the King’s Road, I get lost.
Fortunately, I am an international bestseller so I have wormed my way into a quirky or eccentric category.
Thank God for that.
I am represented by Natalie Lakosil from the Bradford Literary Agency and am published traditionally with Montlake Romance.

Locked-Down Heart (Combat Hearts #3)
Tarina Deaton
 Contemporary | Military Romance
Denise Reynolds’s tightly controlled life is thrown off kilter when she’s given custody of her young cousins. There are days she has a hard enough time getting herself out of bed, never mind two precocious kids. 
 
If that wasn’t enough, Chris Nolton comes strolling back into town as suddenly as he left it. She’d broken her own rules and given him a chance once before, only to have him ghost on her. But he’s not there for her this time. No, he’s leading the FBI Task Force intent on capturing the kids’ biological father. A man who was sent to prison for manslaughter. A man who was released five years too early. A man who wants his kids back.
 
The past has a way of repeating itself and once again, Denise finds herself defending the innocent against the evil of world. One wrong decision, one second guess, could have devastating consequences. To protect the most important people in her life, she’ll need to trust the one man with the power to break her.
 
“WOW! This is such a touching & interesting story. The beginning was totally sad because of the cancer that took Sarah from her family. I was intrigued by the PTSD mentioned and how dogs help those with PTSD. I am so happy that Denise and Chris found their way back to each other and found their happily ever after. Oh Kimber and Kaden are adorable too! FANTASTIC job Tarina! I would recommend this book!” Dawn A Cruikshank
 
Stitched Up Heart (Combat Hearts Book 1)
 
As an Air Force medic, Bree Marks saw the worst the War on Terror had to dish out. Now a physical therapist, she uses her experience to help other veterans heal from their physical wounds; while she battles her own emotional damage.
 
Blaming himself for his best friend’s suicide, former Army Ranger Jase Larken, retreated from life. To honor his best friend’s memory and assuage his guilt, he started an outdoor adventure company to help veterans with PTSD.
 
Bree had better things to do than catch her cheating fiancé in bed with another woman. Jase is something better – for a night at least. For the first time in years, Jase wanted more. When he finds her again, he doesn’t give her another chance to run.
 
Jase’s protectiveness grates on Bree’s independent nature. She’s dealt with her fair share of alpha-male, door kickers and doesn’t need one telling her what to do now. But as a new danger emerges, Bree and Jase must face their pasts, before someone’s obsession with Bree destroys any chance they have of a future.
 
 
 
“There was nothing about this book that I didn’t love. Nothing I would change. I enjoyed every minute of this read. Tarina Deaton has an amazing writing style that really worked for me.” Jessica’s Totally Over The Top Book Obsession.
 
Half-Broke Heart (Combat Hearts #2.5) 
 
 
Denise Reynolds is used to putting up a good front to show the world a strong, capable woman, but keeps a lot of things buried deep.
 
Chris Nolton is everything she learned the hard way to avoid — a sexy alpha-male who could charm her out of her pants and work his way into her heart. If history has taught her anything, it’s a deadly combination, but he manages to dig up emotions and longing she’s tried to bury for years.
 
He says all the right things and pushes her boundaries in all the right ways. Letting her guard down is difficult, especially since believing all the right things in the past led to unimaginable consequences.
 
Being content with her life may no longer be an option, but risking her heart may bring her to her knees.
 
 
“Wow! Powerful story about Denise, Chris, Bree & Jase. I was intrigued by the story starting with page 1. Thank you for bringing to light about veterans with PTSD. This is a book I would recommend.” Dawn A. Cruikshank
 
Rescued Heart (Titan World)
 
 
“Please, Jordan. It’s Emme.” 
 
The last thing Major Jordan Grant expected was to be pulled off his unit’s deployment for a civilian mission. But when Titan calls, you answer — especially when the mission is to rescue the younger sister of your childhood best friend. 
 
Moments away from death, NGO nurse Emme France could only pray for a miracle. The last person she expected to see in the smoke and dust was Jordan Grant, her teenage crush and litmus test of all the men she’d dated ever since.
 
Lying low at Titan’s exotic Abu Dhabi headquarters while the media furor around her rescue settles, Emme and Jordan explore a mutual attraction that is no longer young and innocent. Days in the desert paradise ignite desire and blur reality…until they return home, where Jordan rejoins his deployed unit and Emme is left alone to reevaluate her life and priorities.
 
Their passion was forged in the fires of combat. Will the home fires be enough to keep the burn alive?
 
 
“Tarina Deaton’s Titan World Rescued Heart is a Blockbuster. Great story line, mixed with intrigue, adventure, romance, heart melting, panty dropping moments and the ultimate happily ever after.” Cathy, Amazon Review
 
Tarina has spent her entire life in and around the military – first as a dependent and then as an enlisted Air Force member.
In 2015, a friend challenged her to complete NaNoWrimo. She dusted off one of the many stories she’d started over the years, threw it in the trash, and started all over.
Her debut novel, Stitched Up Heart, released in September 2016. She draws heavily from her own military experience to create authentic characters and to give a realistic perspective of the challenges they face.
Tarina is still active duty and a single mom of four-year-old-twins. Her favorite hobby is sleep. She has delusions of retiring from the military to be a full-time writer and stay-at-home mom.

 

🎰 “Bordello” Review 🎰

📖 “Bordello” By Nikki Ash

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

5 straight to my favorites list stars!!! I absolutely love this story! I did not know this was THE Giovanni (from “Fighting for Your Love”!! I knew I had a thing for him back then!!! Ahhhh I love it!!!

🖤This is Giovanni and Aria’s story…

Aria~ I am literally in hell. I won’t let this break me but I don’t know if my mind won’t have any other choice. But then in walks the man of nightmares except he wants me. Me?!?! I don’t care who he is just please save me…

Giovanni~ I have no need for anything other then a good fuck. I am going to one day lead my family and be a mob boss, no respectable woman needs to be in this life style and risk her life because of me. And then one beat up and broke girl with fire in her eyes turned my world upside down. Don’t worry I know I can’t keep her forever but for now I will make her mine….

💭My thoughts

Omg this is wonderful. Let me say I have read every book this author has wrote so I already had my bar set pretty high and damn she leaped right over that Bitch!! Idk why I didn’t put two and two together and realize this was the Giovanni that I was curious about before. Damn I love him so freaking much!! This author has a way with these men, she makes you want even their dark side!! Now this book was a little darker then her other reads and I think it is my favorite. It definitely should have a trigger warning so be prepared. If you only shit rainbows this definitely is not for you.

Back on to the sexy Valentino men. Omg I want every brother!!!! Ahhh. Damn Nico!! He is that charming sexy Italian Brother. Whew. This book not only had some great men but some really great women and realistic. I love the friendships, they all felt really genuine. So many twists and turns I enjoyed as well. I had so many favorite parts but I think when they were driving the boat I almost combusted!!!

This author is one hell of a writer and I can’t wait to see what is next. Make sure you get a copy of this book, I’m telling you it is one of my top reads this year!!!

💔 “Jackson” Review 💔

📖 “Jackson” By Tracie Podger

🌟🌟🌟💫

3.5 stars!!

This was a very emotional story. I loved that there was so much more to Jackson then meets the eye. This was a story of two broken souls that use each other to heal. It’s crazy because I think these two loved each other long before it was acceptable but they remained good friends. I am not a big fan of Summer’s. I tried but she just didn’t cut it for me but my heart broke at the beginning for her because of that douche of a husband she had.

Now, Jackson, on the other hand I adore him in a unusual way. Of course he is broken so I want to fix him but the shit he has been through, well I think he has just found a way to cope. Except he really didn’t did he?!!! I will say I dislike his father very much. And the whole Honey thing, I totally get it unlike Summer did.

Going into this book for some reason I imagined something different. But I rode with it and continued on. The beginning just didn’t pull me in and then I began to skim and just could not really get invested. I should have been way more emotional then I was and it is not lack of this authors talent. Because her words spelled it out but I think the plot just didn’t connect me or maybe it was just one little thing off. It does sadden me because this author is one of my favorites!!

There are a lot of good reviews for this book so I think you all should give it a go and let me know how you felt. And honestly I think I will come back with a whole new set of

eyes in a couple weeks and try again. All the wordage was there and I did feel things I just wasn’t invested.
