New excerpt

I continue to giggle all the way down the hall and into the elevator. As soon as we hit the elevator, the proximity of Skylar to my humming body really hits home and I feel a sudden wave of arousal. I haven’t felt this way since I woke up, not even with Danny. Glancing over at Skylar, I can see him fidgeting around.

As I’m looking at him, he turns to face me, and I can see the arousal in his eyes. He casually licks his lips and shoves his hands into the pockets of his jeans. I smile and turn back to face the front of the elevator. I have him right where I want him.

When the elevator descends to the first floor, I’m smacked in the face with the gravity of my reality. Danny is waiting for the doors to open, with a huge smile on his face. Glancing back to Skylar, I see that he’s been smacked just as hard. Skylar’s Adam’s apple bobs in his throat, like he’s trying to swallow his feelings, and moves past me toward Danny

New My Review

StarStarStarStarStar

Where to begin with this one…lately I’m finding it extremely hard to find the words to express how much I loved a book. Ashley Suzanne is a rock star! I have recommended this series to family and friends and they all come back to me saying “that book was a total mind fuck!” 🙂 Before Awakening even came out I was getting threats on my life from these people who supposedly love me LOL < – –  this is how good Ashley is!

Awakening begins right where Mirage left off. Therefore, my heart returned to its broken state. Mira is confused by her feelings towards Skylar. She will always love Danny but can she go on without the one man she knows is the one for her? Skylar fights his feelings for Mira the best he can, for how could he move in on his best friends girl?

Will these two come to their senses and be together???

I’ll pose a question; can someone truly move on from one relationship to another without serious contemplation? Without making sure the person you were has in fact beyond a doubt changed? I think not, and in this aspect Ashley nailed in on the head. OMG while reading this book I was on edge the entire time. I was scared of how it would end. My heart can’t take anymore breaks it in. Emotional rollercoaster is a damn understatement. My family calls me “heartless” well from Mirage to Inception and now Awakening I have felt more than I thought possible from a book.  Happiness, sadness, grief, longing, pleasure, pain and then right back over to HAPPY!

I’m not going to tell you who she chooses but I was say I was so damn happy!!!!

Over all this was such a good read. Not only do we see the changes in Mira but also in Danny and Skylar. And since the book is written in each POV you get to feel everything they do. It was awesome! I also loved the tie-in with The Rebel Walking series by Hilary Storm (loved those books). OH and we also get a sneak peak into Kylee’s story. I cannot wait for more from such an amazing author and person!

~ Facebook Page Author Takeover ~

6 Dec

So I wanted to share with you all what Entirely Books facebook page has planned for this weekend in my Author Takeover!

I’ve only done this a few times before and it seems to be a hit for both YOU and the AUTHORS! Why YOU? Well you get to interact with amazing authors. Play games, read excerpts and sneak peaks, ask them questions and well anything else they come up with. 🙂

First up…

vip banner1

Title: VIP
Author: M. Robinson
Genre: Erotica
New author bio
M. Robinson loves to read. She favors anything that has angst, romance, triangles, cheating, love, and of course sex! She has been reading since the Babysitters Club and R.L. Stein.
She was born in New Jersey but was raised in Tampa Fl. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D in psychology, with two years left.
She is married to an amazing man who she loves to pieces. They have two German Shepherd mixes and a Tabby cat.
New Synopsis

The beginning- A point in time or space where something starts.

32 year old Sebastian Vanwell, was a very successful yacht broker, who always loved the design and architecture of a luxurious yacht. His only addiction was being on the water. He loved it, he thrived on it, and he needed it in his life. After a very stable, loving child hood with a few bumps, Sebastian married the love of his life. The one person that he knew would always be there. Julia was his rock, and he loved her more than life itself. Sebastian kept his addiction to the water under control, wanting to keep his time with his wife and son his number one obsession, that was until he saw her. This new addiction haunted him, the one compulsion that he couldn’t control no matter how hard he tried.

Ysabelle Telle hit him hard, knocking the wind from his lungs. Coming from worlds apart, beautiful, dark complexion Ysabelle Telle didn’t have the rich, protected background that Sebastian Vanwell had. Ysabelle lived a life of hell, in poverty, growing up with a drug addict mother that never cared, and horrific living conditions. Ysabelle lived for one person and one person only; herself. She was pure perfection, her beauty along with a flawless body had men lined up, driveling over her insuring her success as a VIP.

There are too many words that describe the effects when two diverse worlds like theirs collide. They both have too much to lose to get caught in the forceful pull, which could destroy them both.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and drug use. Intended for mature audiences.

Series Title: The Maurin Kincaide Series
Author: Rachel Rawlings
Genre: Paranormal, Horror, Fantasy
New author bio

Rachel Rawlings

Rachel Rawlings is an author of Urban Fantasy novels. Her first book, The Morrigna, was published in 2010. Witch Huntbook two, followed on 2012. She is currently working on a novella in The Maurin Kincaide Series, Wolfsbane. She currently lives in Maryland with her husband and three children.

I’ve always been one to pick action over chick flicks and I think I approach writing the same way. I’ve read and continue to read series that are more leather and lace than bullets and octane because of their Paranormal/Urban Fantasy content but when it came to writing my own series I didn’t want my vampires to just bite, I wanted them to kick ass too! The Maurin Kincaide Series are slightly dark, action packed Urban Fantasy novels with a strong female lead.

New Synopsis

Book 1: The Morrigna

I’m Maurin Kincaide, a psychometric, and until a few days ago I was working for Salem’s Preternatural Task Force as an interrogator. I cracked more cold cases and got more confessions than anyone else in the department. Of course that was before I traded in my badge for an ancient Celtic sword. Now, I’m the Special Liaison for the Council, the governing body of the Others, and I take my orders from witches, werewolves and vampires.

I didn’t just make a career change though. I’m not the same person I was before. I’m stronger, I can heal from wounds that would kill a normal person. I’m developing latent psychic skills at a breakneck speed. Oh yeah, and it would seem that a Pagan goddess has taken permanent residence in my body and mind. Crazy thing is, I’m starting to feel normal, like this is who I’m supposed to be.

Of course, there are those who don’t agree. Morrigan and her sisters for example. Actually, I’m pretty sure they’d like nothing more than to see me dead. And if I can’t stop them and the demons they’ve raised, they just might get their wish.

Book 2: Witch Hunt

Maurin Kincaide is back in this action packed follow up novel to The Morrigna. No longer a member of Salem’s Preternatural Task Force Maurin is the new liaison for The Council, governing body of Others. During what should have been a routine meeting with her former Captain, Maurin is brought in on a murder investigation. Three dead witches, three cryptic clues, no sign of the killers and the Salem coven is losing allies within the Council. If Maurin and her unlikely partner Captain Matthison can’t stop the killers, the Witch City might be without its namesake.

Book 3: Wolfsbane

Given the choice between her sister’s wedding and witnessing the challenge for Alpha of the Salem pack, Maurin knows exactly where she’d rather be. Smack dead center in a pack of snarling werewolves wearing eau de filet mignon.

Until McKayla takes off the morning of her wedding. Being her sister’s keeper will not excuse her from her job as the Council Liaison. Torn between obligations to a family she’s avoided for almost a decade and the Council of Others, Maurin has less than twenty-four hours to set things right.

My ReviewGW
StarStarStarStarStar
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I was provided an ARC copy of this book by Author Ashley Suzanne for my honest spoiler free opinion.

The Destined Series is so far on the top of my MUST read list! Ashley Suzanne has done an amazing job first with Mirage and now with Inception. For those of you who haven’t read my review for Mirage, allow me to recap it for you…

Mirage was one of the bestest roller-coaster rides I’ve ever ridden! It is a story filled with love, heartache, grief and so much more. In Mirage we are given a story through Mira’s POV. There is a twist you will not expect and that twist RUINED me beyond measure. And I say ruined in a good way. I fell in love with these characters (mainly Skylar 😉 ) and the story Ashley Suzanne has given us.

Inception is the prequel to Mirage but should be read after. This novella is written in Danny’s POV. We are taken back to the beginning, to a time before the boys met the girls. We are shown how deep Danny and Skylar’s friendship/brotherhood really is. Though Mirage was an amazing book Inception make’s it that much better filling that gaps with more details.

And as I mentioned before I just LOVE Skylar and Inception sealed the deal for me! This badass hottie has me won over!!! He will forever be on my top book boyfriend list. LOL

I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE!
