BLOG TOUR – What We Left Behind  by Nikki Sparxx


Title: What We Left Behind 
Author: Nikki Sparxx
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Add On Goodreads 


Dear Liv,
Hope this letter finds you well. Fuck, what has it been? Nine years? Ten? I guess it would be about nine since that’s how old our daughter is. She found me, Liv. She wants to meet us—both of us. I thought we should make the decision together. I can come to you or you can come home. I know your momma misses you something fierce. Let me know what you decide.

Lincoln
It’s been ten years since I left. Turned my back on my home, my family, and him. I wasn’t strong enough to salvage what was left after we gave her up. I couldn’t bear to see the look of disappointment and blame in his eyes.
I should’ve fought harder for her; for us. Now, all the feelings I spent ten years burying are beginning to resurface from one letter; one single piece of paper. I’m not sure I have it in me to face my past but I know I can’t turn my back on her again; not when I gave up so easily the first time.









Lover of angst, drama, and happily ever afters, Nikki Sparxx is the bestselling author of The Scars of Us. When she’s not writing, Nikki enjoys reading, playing Texas Hold ‘Em poker, and bingeing Netflix.

BOOK BLITZ – Scozzari (Deviant #3) by Jaimie Roberts 

Title: Scozzari
Series: Deviant #3 
Author: Jaimie Roberts 
Genre: Romance, Suspense 
Add on Goodreads 

Jeremy (Jez) Scozzari

At the age of four, I was kidnapped by an enemy of my father, and as a result of that day, I have learned to fight. Since the age of eighteen, I’ve been known as Jez (One Punch) Scozzari because the full force of my fist is enough to take down my opponent with just one hit.

With the help of my dad, I turned into a tatted up machine—built for speed, built for stamina … in all senses of the word. I was prepared to fight, prepared for practically anything. But nothing had prepared me for the girl who had once stolen my heart to come catapulting back into my life again. One look from her when she turned up that day at college, and I was back to when I was ten-years-old. She was my first crush … my first kiss. 

And now that she’s back, there’s no way I’m going to let her escape this time.

Caitlin Summers

When I was ten, I fell for a boy who stole my heart. He was sweet, kind, and gentle. He was my first kiss—the one who made a lasting impression. 

Then, at the age of thirteen, I had to move, leaving behind my heart which belonged to that sweet, kind, and gentle boy.

Now, I’m back, hearing that the sweet boy I left behind has turned into this tattooed bad boy with a reputation for fighting … and an equal reputation for sleeping around.

I was determined not to let him in. Determined to put my walls up so high that not even the famous “One Punch” Scozzari could penetrate them. 

But then came my first day of college when I saw him for the very first time in almost six years. One look from him and my solid walls came down with an earth-shattering crash. Just that one look and he had me … and he knew he had me.

That was day one of Jeremy stalking me.

I’m screwed.

Please note: This book is a standalone. However, it is recommended to read Deviant and Redemption first as it contains characters who are in Scozzari.

Warning: Contains scenes which readers may find upsetting. Please proceed with caution.

Tonight, Zoe wasn’t wearing the halter-neck dress. She appeared in figure-hugging jeans and a blue cotton blouse that set off the topaz in her beautiful irises. After declining a glass of wine, she sat next to me, shooting me a look from under her dark lashes.
Mrs K arrived with our starter course, a fresh vegetable salad made with cucumbers, tomatoes and onions. She served us and returned to the kitchen.
I swirled the wine in my glass. “I’m sorry if I was a little abrupt when we said goodnight yesterday.”
“Abrupt? You were more than abrupt.” Her eyes flashed. “You were downright rude.”
“I’m not a nice man. I don’t do ‘nice’. I can’t.”
“Why?”
Ever forthright.
“If I show any weakness, I’ll be finished.” I lifted my fork and speared a tomato.
She took a sip of water. “Being nice isn’t the same as being weak, I don’t think.”
“You are right, rybka. It isn’t.” I shook my head. “I guess I’ve just gotten out of the habit.”
She chewed some salad and swallowed. “Were you horrible to your wife? Is that why you got divorced?”
“None of your concern,” I snapped, slamming my hand down on the table. Dishes rattled and the water in Zoe’s glass sloshed over the edge.
She shot me a withering look. “There you go again, being a prick. I’m only trying to understand you, Taras.”

Blog Tour – Trapped By The Mob by Tami Lund

Series: Detroit Mafia #1 
Author: Tami Lund 
Genre: Mafia Romance 

Add on Goodreads 


Sure, Antonio Sarvilli is the money man behind his brother’s criminal empire, but that doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy. He’s not the one out there killing people. All he does is make greenbacks and enjoy the fruits of his labor.

That attitude changes when his brother assigns him to get to know Phoebe Cavanaugh, a Good Samaritan who witnessed something she wasn’t supposed to. 

Now, all Antonio wants is to get out so he can be with Phoebe.






“Wait,” she said, grasping the front of his shirt. “Why don’t you come in for a nightcap?” That was code for let’s have sex, right?

 “I’m not sure that’s a good idea.”
“Why not?”
“Er…” 
 “Is it me?”
“Is what you?”
“The reason you won’t do anything more than give me a peck on the cheek. Because if you think I’m that kind of girl, rest assured, I’m not.”
“What kind of girl is that?”
“I shouldn’t.”
“Why not?”
“I…”
“You’re giving me a complex.”
“Trust me, you should not have a complex. Under any other circumstances, I’d have had you on your back last night, if not the first night we met.”
“I want to be on my back. Well, maybe I’d rather you be on your back. I kinda like being on top.”

I’m having an out of body experience. At least…I think. Isn’t that what it’s called when your spirit abandons you to watch—from a safe distance, with the appropriate amount of judgement—while you make questionable decisions?

Yup, one of those.

I want to shout, “STOP ELLIE, DON’T DO IT!” But spirit me doesn’t have a voice. So I watch as she…I…we? Makes a sex contract with her…our…new boss.

This is a good time to mention the 45-minute HR meeting we sat through last month expressly forbidding this sort of thing.

In our defense, Max is ridiculously hot, and I…we may have accidentally quit.

With a sigh, I look down at the bodies pressed against the wall of the executive office.

Yup, we’re totally screwed.












Writer of words. Mother of Joy. Wife of Compassion. Carmel likes to write stories about real people who go through real struggles and come out the other side stronger. She also likes to write smut. Welcome to her brain. It’s a little screwed up, but always well intended.

Author: Laura Daleo

Finals are over, and twenty-year-old Claire Matthews can hardly wait to begin summer break until…she arrives home to an army of police swarming her parents’ front lawn. Detective Reynolds delivers the dreadful news that the man and woman inside the home are dead, and Claire is forced to identify their mummified bloodless bodies. Her world comes to a grinding halt when she learns that it is her mother and father who are the deceased, and her younger brother, JJ, is nowhere to be found. The predator accused…a vampire.
Claire is no stranger to vampires; in fact, these days’ vamps are a dime a dozen. One-hundred-thirty years ago a vow was made, combining the two worlds. A vampire’s survival no longer required a human sacrifice. Vampire Centers were created, offering human blood through transfusion; yet, why were her parents bled dry? Why now? What changed? Could a rogue vampire be responsible?  Was it possible vampires, Nate and Parker, JJ’s best friends, suddenly hungered for human blood?
