The Unidentified Redhead (Redhead Series #1) by Alice Clayton


Book Blurb:

Now available in eBook, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton’s debut novel is a playful and erotic romance between an aspiring actress and Hollywood’s hottest new leading man.
 When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actress, it’s a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best-friend agent, will that dream become a reality—or at thirty-three, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? And when an unexpected sizzling romance with Jack Hamilton, the entertainment industry's newest “it” boy, threatens to shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life, how will that affect her career…and his?
Funny, borderline neurotic Grace is perfect in her imperfections, and the sexual chemistry between her and charming yet blissfully unaware Jack is off the charts. With laugh-out-loud dialogue and a super-steamy romance that will get your heart racing, sneaking around in L.A. and dodging the paparazzi has never been so fun.


Jo-Anna's Review:

 First off, hot British boy!! Hello Jack Hamilton!!!!

Grace Sheridan and Jack Hamilton were made for each other! The hot sizzling chemistry between those two is unreal. Grace is a sexy confidant woman who meets sexy confidant movie star Jack Hamilton. There's an age difference but you wouldn't know it by the way they talk to each other.

This book was hilarious, sexy, and hot!

I really liked it and I hope to read book two soon. Alice Clayton did a good job for her debut novel.


About the author:



Novelist Alice Clayton makes her home in St. Louis where she enjoys gardening but not weeding, baking but not cleaning up after, and is trying desperately to get her long-time boyfriend to make her an honest woman--and please buy her a Bernese Mountain dog.

After working for years in the cosmetics industry as a makeup artist, esthetician, and educator, Alice picked up a pen (read laptop) for the first time at 33 to begin a new career: author. Having never written anything longer than a grocery list, she soon found writing to be the creative outlet she'd been missing since walking away from the theater 10 years before.

She has a great time combining her love of storytelling with a sense of silly, and she was shocked and awed to be nominated for a Goodreads Author award in 2010 for her debut novels, the first two installments of The Redhead Series--The Unidentified Redhead and The Redhead Revealed. Her latest novel Wallbanger is a return to her trademark comedic erotica, or funny smut, that Alice has become known for.

Additionally, Alice loves spending time with her besties on Not Your Mother's Podcast (check them out on iTunes) and has recently partnered with actor Greg Grunberg, blogger Brittany Gibbons, and actress Keili Lefkovitz on a new travel show that will begin filming in January.

Alice enjoys pickles, Bloody Marys, eight hours of sleep and a good pounding.

Angie J's 5 Star Wet Panties Review:

I was given this book by the author for a truthful review.

I must start this review by saying BRAVO ENDING!!!!  My heart is racing and I immediately messaged the author to say I was STOMPING my Foot!!!  She is such a master at teasing us *giggles* in alot of ways this novel.

If you are up to date with the series, SWEET!! If not please start with the Brie at the Training Center.  These books take place after she is through submissive school and is in a happy and stable relationship with her Master.

So this nook is another great installment to Brie.  She and Tono have to face their feelings about one another.  I must say I enjoyed seeing him be a little 'rougher" with Brie.  During the Graduation ceremony he didn't seem to have the "harder" side so that was pretty exciting.....annnd let me say the scene was pretty HAWT!!!

Todd, Todd, Todd.......I really just feel for the guy but DUDE LET HER GOOOOOOOOO...enough about him.

Ms, Clarke has really really really peaked me.  She hates Brie BUT......I wanna know what is up.  I wanna know why she is so draw to Brie but hates Brie.  I mean we learned some thing about her and Rytsar but what else makes drives her???????

Grey and Lea's Flogging Scene......I loved how Brie is so expressive and Grey can pick up on it.  he is such a great man...and Lea...who doesn't love her!!!

Sir *Dreamy Sigh*  he was very missed in this novel but the gifts and poem defo brought a tear to my eye.  I will say the cliffhanger at the end is in regards to Sir and I am guessing his past.....?????  Man, it was an epic ending and i am going to be driving Red CRAZY until book 6 is out!!  LOL

Jo-Anna's Review:

So as most of you already know, thanx to Angie J, I'm a HUGE FREAKING FAN OF Red Phoenix!! I have 3 favorite serial novel writers and she is definitely one of them. 

So I finished all of her Brie books and I'm dying for the next one (After Graduation #5). Well I decided to go back to the very beginning of Red's world and read every single thing written by her.

I'm starting with the Sensual Erotica series and I LOVED IT! So far it's very different than the Brie books but it's a nice change. It cleanses the palate so to speak.  

You meet Amy and Troy who have been friends forever but that's it...just friends. Well I just started this wonderful serial novel but I'm assuming Troy is trying to get out of the friend zone? I could be wrong as Red likes to change things on us readers. And OH MY GOSH the ending? Seriously? Her ends are ridiculous! I love them! Definitely leaves you panting and wanting more!

Wonderful job Red as always and I look forward to the rest of my journey with Amy and Troy! 


Excerpt from Loving Amy:

He noticed her stumble as she walked away. Then Amy bumped into the couch and fell on the small Christmas tree in the corner. Daniel helped her up, righting the tree. Amy giggled and looked in Troy's direction. Crap, she is really drunk. It would be so much easier to pretend she wasn't. Now what was he going to do? He didn't want her feeling taken advantage of after the hangover wore off.

He stood out on the deck a while longer contemplating his next move. Troy sucked on his cigarette to give himself time to think, but it didn't take long to formulate a plan. Troy crushed the smoldering butt with his foot, before heading to his bedroom and locking the door behind him.

Amy lay in a seductive pose on his bed. "You made it. I was afraid you were having second thoughts."

"Never." Troy pulled off his shirt and tossed it to the ground before getting into bed with her.

Survivor Roundup (The Zombie West Series #2) by Angela Scott


Book Blurb:

Red always knew she would have to face the man who nearly destroyed her. She just didn’t figure it would happen so soon...

With the plague sweeping across the nation, destroying many and turning others into walking corpses, survivors head West in search of a chosen land, a place designed to keep the infected out, while sealing survivors inside. In theory, the idea seems the only way to keep humanity alive. In practice, it doesn’t matter whether a person is on the inside or the out—there is no humanity.

...And even though John Gatherum hunted her down and instigated their reunion, Red’s no longer the passive girl he once manipulated. This time, she has a hidden agenda of her own.

Kill him. Save her family. Save herself.


Jo-Anna's Review:

 Angela Scott does it again with another fantastic read! I'm honored to say that I was approached back when a tour was being for regarding her second Desert book I believe and I fell in love with her writing that I had to read everything written by her and now I can proudly say,  I HAVE READ EVERY BOOK BY ANGELA SCOTT!!! (so far that is) ;)

Angela does it again with the sequel to her to The Zombie West series. I just love Red and Trace and every single character in these books. The zombies are awesome too cause who doesn't love a little zombie action?

Again, the people of The Zombie West books are trying to keep away from the zombies and fight for survival. These books are about hardship, rough times, survival, laughter, friendship, love...*swoon* They are just fantastic. If you've read the first Zombie book, definitely read this one.

I can't wait for the 3rd installment of this series! I know Angela will not disappoint and she'll do us readers proud!!


Author Information:



Angela Scott hears voices. Tiny fictional people sit on her shoulders and whisper their stories in her ear. Instead of medicating herself, she decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. She's not crazy. She's an author. For the most part, she writes contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraled out of control, she found herself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West--and loving it. Her zombies don't sparkle, and they definitely don't cuddle. At least, she wouldn't suggest it. She lives on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. She graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of her love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn't require math. She can't spell, and grammar is her arch nemesis. But they gave her the degree, and there are no take backs. 


New Cover of Sweet Thing by Renee Carlino


Angie J is currently reading this book to review!!





Book Blurb

Mia Kelly is a twenty-five-year-old walking Gap ad who thinks she has life figured out when her father’s sudden death uproots her from slow-paced Ann Arbor to New York City’s bustling East Village. There she discovers her father’s spirit for life and the legacy he left behind with the help of an old cafĂ©, a few eccentric friends, and one charming musician.

Will Ryan is good-looking, poetic, spontaneous, and on the brink of fame when he meets Mia, his new landlord, muse, and personal heartbreaker.

A story of self-discovery and friendship, Sweet Thing shines light on the power of loving and letting go.

About the author:

Image of Renee Carlino

Renee's first friends were the imaginary kind and even though her characters haven't gone away, thankfully the delusions have. She admits she's a wildly hopeless romantic and she blames 80's movies staring Molly Ringwald for that. She lives in Southern California with her husband, two sons, and their sweet dog June. When she's not at the beach with her boys or working on the next book, she likes to spend her time reading, going to concerts, and eating dark chocolate.

The 'What if" Guy Book Tour by Brooke Moss




The "What If" Guy 

Book Blurb:

What would you do if your "what if" guy showed up at the lowest point of your life?

(Autumn Cole clocked hers with an encyclopedia.)

After losing her job at a swanky Seattle art gallery and finding out her father has been hospitalized, single mother Autumn Cole reluctantly returns to her tiny hometown of Fairfield, Washington, to put the pieces of her life back together.

Her disgruntled twelve-year old son isn't thrilled about going from hip to hick, but Autumn's got it worse. She resumes her role as the daughter of the town drunk, promptly facing a crisis with her father that's been decades in the making.

Running into Henry Tobler, and nearly breaking his nose, is almost more than she can handle, but can rediscovering love-and herself-with her "what if" guy teach Autumn to forgive before it's too late?


 

Angie J's Review:

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

OMG This book has me in tears....good and sad....cracking up and crying over loss.  I have to commend Brooke, she has mad writing skills.  I have loved both books of hers and will most definitely keep an eye out for her new releases.

Ok this book is about finding the love of your life but letting him go when you find out you are preggo with another mans baby...GASP...right!!  So 13 years later Autumn stumbles into her small town with said child, no baby daddy or job.  She moves home with her town drunk dad to get back on her feet and help him because he seems to be sick. She enrolls her son in her old school and walks him to class.  When she opens the door her life is forever changed...Henry is the teacher!!  She proceeds to bash him in the face with an encyclopedia, drop hot gravy in his lap and pretty much be a total klutz throughout the book.  I remember squirming in my chair, laughing out loud at how uncomfortable poor Autumn was feeling!!!
Henry is stunned that the love of his life is here...granted he is married to someone else....but still she is here.  Now I must say Henry never really loved the wife but married her because it was kinda expected after 8 years of dating!!!  However, Henry's wife doesn't want to let him go.  He ran as far away from her as he could get which is how he ended up in Autumns hometown...never knowing it was her town OR that she was returning to care for her father.
The chemistry that Brooke builds for these two people is amazing.  From the first scene you can feel their WANTING and their PULL together.  I did want to smack Autumn a few times for never giving Henry the chance to explain situations but I also wanted to kick Henry in the butt because he KNOWS how nuts Autumn can get :)
My favorite parts of the book :
1. When Autumn finally admits to Henry she loves him and never stopped all these years.  It also happens to take place in front of the entire volunteer fire department.  IF you know anything about small towns, gossip runs crazy!!  The things Autumn says is hilarious and mortifying!!!
2.  I also loved the epilogue.  It is told in Henry's perspective.    I kinda like getting an insight to his view of everything since the book is Autumns.
3. I also loved the relationship that Autumn and her dad plus her dad and Elliot make.  It was very emotional when they are all fishing and her dad lays it all on the line and admits his feelings for them and Henry.  It made me teary eyed!!
Ok So I have gone on and on and on but I loved this book.  The chemistry was wonderful.  The angst was high and the love was all encompassing!!!

"I write because if I don't...my head will explode, and ruin the drapes." ♥

Brooke Moss is the name, contemporary romance, fantasy YA, and women's fiction are the game.

Brooke writes complex, character-driven stories about kismet, reunited lovers, first love, and the kind of romance that we should all have the chance at finding. She prefers her stories laced with some humor just for fun, and enough drama to keep her readers flipping the pages, and begging for more!

When Brooke isn't spinning tales, she spends her time drawing/cartooning, reading two books a week (ask her who her faves are), watching movies then comparing them to books, and, of course, wrangling four kids, one hubby she lovingly refers to as her "nerd", and attempting to conquer the Mount Everest of laundry that is the bane of her existence.

Make Mine a Cowboy by Sandy Sullivan



***RELEASE DAY***

Blurb:

Mesa Arraguso writes about hot cowboys for a living. Being a romance writer has it perks and its drawbacks. She spends a lot of time alone in front of her computer, but she gets to fantasize about incredibly hot men wearing cowboy boots and Stetsons. While visiting San Antonio, Texas for a writer’s conference, she finds herself stranded on the back roads of Bandera only to be rescued by one of the most gorgeous men she’s ever encountered, be it fantasy or for real.
Joel Young is a cowboy. From the top of his Stetson to the tip of his dirty cowboy boots, he’s cowboy through and through. Along with rescuing women when they do silly things like running out of gas miles from town on a dirt road, he spends his days herding cattle, fixing fences and breaking horses.
Can one handsome cowboy and a city-girl from LA find common ground is the Hill Country long enough to see beyond a quick fling?

Excerpt:

As the water began rising rapidly she realized she needed to get the hell out of her car before it was washed away. In the distance she could make out several larger rocks. "If I can get on top of them, I should be safe from the rush. Of course, that means I'll be out in the rain getting soaked.” Fear rose, threatening to choke her with the lump in her throat. She rubbed her arms trying to calm the chills while deciding what to do. She really didn’t have much choice. Water ran in rivulets down the windshield. Lightning continued to flash and thunder rolled over the area. She sucked in a large breath as she bit her lip.
A moment later a tap, tap, tap on her window startled her out of her thoughts. She jumped and screamed as a face appeared near her door. Blue eyes with long lashes stared back beneath a black cowboy hat. Black hair ruffled slightly with the wind.
"Ma'am? Are you all right?"
"I'm fine."
"You need to get this car out of the water. You'll be washed away. It's rising fast."
"I can't. I'm out of gas."
"Open the door."
"Hell, no. Do I look crazy to you?" she asked, her voice shrill with terror.
"Trust me. If I were a serial killer, I wouldn't be out in this shit trying to find women to abduct. I'm going to help you, but you need to get out of the car first before we're both swept away."
Mesa bit her lip. Should she trust him?
"Ma'am?"
"All right." She eased open the door to find the water almost reached the bottom of the car. The cowboy pulled the door the rest of the way as she grabbed her purse.
"We have to hurry," he said, offering her a hand to help her from the car. "Let me help you. This water is rushing pretty fast."
A red horse stood patiently several feet away with its head down, riding out the storm the only way horses knew how. A cowboy on a real horse out here in the middle of nowhere? Surely, it's safe. I mean serial killers don't ride horses, right?

Excerpt


He winced as she dabbed again. It had to hurt, she knew but all she could think about was kissing those full lips. She wanted to see his eyes dark with desire. Feel his hands on her bare flesh. Have those lips on other places of her body like her breasts, her nipples, or her clit.
“You okay?” he whispered, glancing up through those impossibly long eyelashes.
“Yeah.” Her heart pounded behind her ribcage.
“Your pulse is fluttering.”
“I know.”
“Why?” His voice continued in a soft, coaxing tone reminding her of how he spoke to the horse while she gave birth to her colt.
“It’s nothing, Joel.”
“Do you want me to kiss you?”
She closed her eyes and licked her lips. God, do I ever want you to kiss me. More than my next breath. More than a winning lottery ticket. More than…
The next thing she knew, he had twisted her around so she lay flat on the bed with him hovering over her. He bent down and brushed his lips against hers so softly she wasn’t sure if he’d actually kissed her.
“You shouldn’t be doing this.”
“I know.”
He kissed her again, this time with his tongue softly brushing her lips as if to ask for permission to deepen it. Her lips parted of their own accord without her even thinking beyond how his lips felt against hers. The dip of his tongue tore a moan from her mouth. She tangled her hands in the front of his western shirt, wanting nothing more than to remove the barrier between his skin and hers.
The fire burning in her gut prompted her to return kiss for kiss, touch for touch.


Angie J's Review:

I received this book ARC from the author for an honest review.

Raise your hands if you have read a Sandy Sullivan novel?  Shew!! Then you all know how hawt they are right!!!???   GREAT because this book defo doesn't disappoint at all.  I also loved the BDSM aspects of  Joel and Mesa sexual relationship.  I find BDSM super hawt to read!!! *blushes*

This story is about independent minded, strong willed, romance writer, Mesa who runs out of gas in the middle of a thunderstorm WHEN a flash flood is about the hit.......not good right?  Did I mention she freaks in storms???  Bad sitch for Mesa until *tap tap tap* on her car window is a hot, sexy cowboy (Joel) who offers her help.  The chemistry is uber thick.  Both Mesa and Joel can feel the sexual tension.  They try to fight it because the family has a strict "no screwing guest" rule on the dude ranch they run.  Mesa writes erotic cowboy novels so she decides to stay for a few days at the ranch.  Well friends what do you think happens?  OF COURSE they can't stop the attraction and damn is the sex hot.  Then typical male Joel tells Mesa she is "almost the best he has ever had"....oh yes ladies he was a total douche at that point.  Well Mesa was not thrilled...hell would you be????  They fight and then have some make up sex and then her time to leave has arrives.  Their week is over.  Both are totally head over heels in love with the other BUT are tooo afraid to admit it.  So what happens you ask????  Hrmmmm guess you better just buy the book to find out. I will say i was yelling a little bit at BOTH of them for being soooooo dang stubborn!!!!!

My favorite parts of the book are when Mesa and Joel have a "food fight" of sorts while they have an argument about a misunderstanding.  I also love love love Joel's matchmaking mother Nina.  She is a driving force behind this family of 9 boys.

I love the set up at the end of the book for Jess.  He totally needs some love because he is a broken, unhappy cowboy. When you read about his ex-wife you will wanna hug him for his heart ache but also kick him in the balls for being an ass!!   I cant wait to see him get his butt kicked by love AND see what a true loving relationship with a woman will do for him.

Book Blurb:
Forgetting who you are, your ambitions, your passions is crippling….but remembering – embracing your purpose with a new sense of determination is more than empowering….it's life altering. Charlie Myers is on a life altering path that will cause the dammed to humble in silence.

One night…just a few friends, how could it go so wrong? That was the question seventeen year old Charlie Myers was asking when she found herself in the ER. Outwardly nothing was wrong with Charlie, she was a vision of perfect heath, internally she was battling a raging headache…one the doctor told her she would overcome shortly, but Charlie knew something else was wrong …very wrong.

Part of her had been stolen…she was missing memories. Those memories were sacred. They held the key to her sanity. They told her that the sinister whispers, the shadows that came to life before her were not as ominous as she felt they were. They held the bond with her late father, a famed musician. They caused her to forget the one talent that allowed her to face the darkness that haunted her every waking hour. They also masked a much deeper bond, the face of the one that had stolen her heart, long before the age of seventeen.

Sitting in the ER with her angry mother she couldn’t figure out what she was missing, or even how. Her thoughts told her that she needed to protect Britain, a friend of hers, but that didn’t make any sense – Britain didn’t need to be protected from anyone, he was strong, young, and absurdly wealthy. Charlie also knew that even though her friend Bianca called Charlie her best friend, she didn’t trust her …she was almost sure she despised her, but she couldn’t figure out why, or understand how random thoughts were telling her that she adored both Britain and Bianca – that they were her saviors – that they brought silence to the unstoppable whispers, but the silence scared Charlie. In her mind anyone or anything that could bring silence to something that dark could not be good.

Charlie wanted to stay in NY, figure out what she was missing, why, and who was behind it all, but her mother had other plans. Against her will, Charlie was sent to Salem to live with her sister, within that small town Charlie found her memories and so much more.

Her story begins now.

Note: One random commenter will be chosen to win a ebook copy of See. Good luck!

Jo-Anna's Review:

So I chose to review this story because it sounded really good and I love a good YA novel. I was right. Jamie sets the bar with the first story to this series.

Meet Charlie. She loses her memory after a night goes wrong with her friends. She's confused and has no idea what's going on. Her memories come back slowly and she learns there's more to them then she could imagine.

Jamie draws you in as a reader. You feel the confusion that Charlie feels through the story because she has no memories, so you learn with her what happens. It could get frustrating at times but I think that's a good thing. You're feeling what Charlie feels. Personally, I like being able to feel what the main character feels. It helps me enjoy the story even more because I feel like I'm actually there.

As Charlie gets her memories back, some of the people who are supposed to be her friends, she actually doesn't trust them. Something is off about them and she ends up learning why.

This is my first story by Jamie that I've read and I really liked it. I hope to read more.

This is the 2nd book of the Playing With Fire Series by TE Sivec. Once again... Tara ROCKED my world with the twist in this book as well as the first one. Just when you THINK YOU KNOW... YOU HAVE NO IDEA =) . Kudos again to a book that kept me on edge with the who's, what's, hows and wow that was a HOT SCENE.
 
 
Falling Into You by Jasinda Wilder
 
  CLICK HERE
 
This was THE MOST emotional read of the year for me. I knew what was coming. I read the blurb but still it doesn't lessen the blow any. This book was a differnet genre for Jasinda and like most people I was unsure at first. SHE DID IT!!! SHE ROCKED IT !!! like nobody else. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down.. NOW.. if only the next book would hurry and come out...*sigh* I'm so impatient
 
Wounded by Jasinda Wilder

So this book was NOTHING like I expected it to be. It was dark, twisted, violent and BEAUTIFUL. Yep the story within all the violence and darkness was absolutely beautiful. I loved getting lost in this book. Jasinda once again amazed me with this one . It was unlike anything else I had read of hers.
 
 
Relentless by Cassia Leo

This is book one of the Shattered Hearts Series and HOLY CRAP ! This book was so great. I was glued to it. It was one of those I"M READING FEND FOR YOURSELF FAMILY BOOKS... I couldn't do anything but read. I was so into the lives of Claire, Adam and Chris. I mean I  literally had DREAMS of this book. It was always on my mind. This was my first book of Cassia's and definately not the last.
 
 
Pieces Of You by Cassia Leo

After reading Relentless I CRAVED this book. Like I needed to know then what was gonna happen next... I even threated Cassia with going into labor early if she DIDNT get me this book..... as the old saying goes.... good things come to those who wait... TRUE STORY... it really did. This was the perfect book to the series. Cassia did such a good job with filling us in and keeping us enthralled with Claire, Adam, and Chris. Now if only book 3 will get here.... I may actually go into early labor if it doesn't come soon this time LOL =)
 
 
Lover At Last by JR Ward

I waited sooooo LONG for this book. I was THRILLED to find that Qhuinn and Blay would finally get to tell their story. It was bittersweet though. Part of me liked the going back and forth for them the build up but... the other part was like YES FINALLY THEY ARE TOGETHER AT LAST !!!! There was some major controversy with this book and well for me I LOVED IT ! I thought Ward done a GREAT job in telling their story. There were a few tiny things I would have changed ( more detail in the hot sex scenes) but overall one of my fav or the ENTIRE SERIES !

OMG.....what can I say about this book... KELLAN KYLE.... that sums it up RIGHT? I was heartbroken that this would be THE END of the series. I was praying that like many endings it wouldn't be rushed.... IT WASN"T. It was the perfect ending to a perfect love triangle. I actually fell in love with ALL the characters in this book. I was so ANTI Griffin and yes even Kiera but this book made me love them. So the actual word to sum it up was PERFECT but I still love screaming KELLAN KYLE =)

This was the first in a series. This book had me at the first page. I was HOOKED. I had been looking at this book for a while and really wanted to read it so when we got a request on the blog I JUMPED on it. I was so excited. Then when I found out it was written by 3 authors TOGETHER. I was amazed at how well it all flowed good together. These gals done an AWESOME job.
