::A Review and Giveaway:: Shadowing Me by Crystal Spears



 
I've been sitting on this review for a few days now. Why? Because I honestly didn't know how to rate or review it. Shadowing Me was part of the Breakneck series, but didn't feel like it, but that isn't to say it wasn't a good book. It was, it was just different. I know, I know, that doesn't really make sense, but that's really the only way I can explain my feelings. I felt like Shadowing Me, was more of a Breakneck BDSM book, which completely worked, but I also felt like I was missing some of the MC.

Crystal wrote this book, like many of her others, in multiple point of views and I personally LOVE that. Shadowing Me mostly revolves around Tatiana (ZZ's daughter and Shadow.) You'll remember them if you've read the previous books. At first I couldn't really remember who they were, and while Crystal doesn't go back and review the previous books, it did all finally come back to me. I loved their story, and their journey, but wanted more...

Gahh...I feel like by saying I wanted more that I'm making it sound like it wasn't a good book, because it was, but I loved how raw the Breakneck boys had been, and didn't feel like I got that from this book. That was the only down fall...

At the beginning and end of the book there is a personal note from Crystal explaining why she wrote the book the way she did and I think her note leads me to believe that we'll get the "more" that I'm talking about in the next few books. That's the great thing. We're getting a few more full length novels and also a few novellas. I can't complain about that.

So...how did I rate the book? Overall, I would have to give it a 4. I know a lot of people are rating it a 3, and while I get it, and that's still a great review, I think they mainly did it because like me they wanted more of the rawness. But, the writing and story was strong and so were the characters, so to me that deserves...

Author Bio
 
Crystal Spears has always had a passion for literature. She fell in love with reading at an early age. After spending a decade in business management, she began blogging and book reviewing, only to find that that didn't satisfy her craving. So, she began to write. Like any Indie out there, she had goals and dreams. She wrote Talania - a trip down memory lane, a beautiful, contemporary romance novel. It almost made it to the top, just almost. Someone told Crystal to write what she knew. She gave serious thought to that advice.

For many years, her father had been CEO of a well-known gun and surplus store in Texas. He then bought a tattoo shop where Crystal found herself surrounded by bikers. Hardcore bikers. The Bestselling Breakneck Series was born when Crystal decided to write what she knows. Don't get the wrong idea.

Her Breakneck series is completely fictional, but based on things seen and heard, she now had a place to start writing from that knowledge. Seize Me was hardcore, and Crystal became the writer known as the chick with no boundaries. She took the critics the wrong way and made her next bestseller Withstanding Me a little tamer. Readers were quick to point out that they did not like that and demanded that Crystal return to gritty writing. When asked if she would write gritty from now on, her only answer was... "I'll write what my readers want me to write, and I'll also write what I feel."

Crystal resides in Indiana with her husband and their two children. They have a pit named Dozer, two fish, and one fancy rat. They enjoy the outdoors, and camp, fish, and go boating as much as possible.

Book 2 in the Filthy Beautiful Lies series.

I never expected to watch Sophie walk away. She was mine. I would own her. She just didn’t know it yet. New goal: Seal the deal and rock her world so thoroughly she never wanted to leave again.

Highly sexual and emotionally charged, Filthy Beautiful Love is the provocative conclusion to Filthy Beautiful Lies.


BUY NOW:







Excerpt

"You agreed to give me six months," he reminds me.

"I also agreed to give you my virginity," I add.

"But I didn’t take that."

"No, you didn’t," I agree. A fact that I’m painfully aware of.

"Are you still intact?" he asks, his tone raspy and deep.

A warm current zips through me, flushing my cheeks and soaking my panties. "Of c-course." My voice is hoarse and Colton’s dark eyes roaming on mine make it impossible to speak clearly. 

I see the vein throb at the base of his throat. "Good girl," he admonishes.

::Release Week:: UNFORGIVEN by Rebecca Shea

 
 
 
 
Let me start by saying that I loved each of the books in the Unbreakable series, but I loved each of them differently. I think that's the best part about this series.  Each book feeds off the others, but it's still it's own book with it's own story.

Rebecca's writing is strong.  She wrote this book knowing exactly where her characters would end up and it was evident.  Not once did I feel like the character was written to be "pushed" in a different direction.  They stayed true to themselves and that was because of Rebecca.  She kept the story strong and intriguing.
 
I first fell in love with Lindsay in Unbreakable, but even then knew there was more to her story than what was told.  I then got to know her a little better in Undone, but even then I knew there was so much more.  We get all of it in Unbreakable.  All. Of. It.

Lindsay is a character that I love.  She's strong, but vulnerable.  She has demons, but she knows it, and when it comes time to admit it, she does...fully!

And Matt...oh Matt.  That man knows how to love.  He loves Lindsay more than she loved herself and because of that he let her go when he shouldn't have...

"I don't know what our futures hold, but every time I try to envision mine, you're  a part of it.  In my dreams, you're the one I wake up next to every morning, and go to sleep with every night.  You're the one rocking my babies to sleep and holding my hand when I'm an old man.  It's always been you. It will always be you."

I'm sad to see this story end.  I fell in love with each character in each book and wish they could all live forever in every book that Rebecca writes, but I'm able to say goodbye with a happy heart. Thanks for that Rebecca!

Our Reviews
BOOM. MY VAJAYJAY IS ALL TINGLY AND MY BUNDLE OF NERVES NEED ATTENTION. 

I'LL JUST BE LOCKED IN MY BATHROOM. 

MOMMY IS BUSY, GIRLS. DO NOT FUCKING MESS WITH ME AND MY VAUGHN ASHER TIME. 

Nobody puts Vaughn Asher in the corner. NO ONE. Not even you she who needs a cock shoved up her ass. 

This series is going to ruin me. It is going to make me fall so deeply in love with it and then

BOOM

it will leave me lying on the floor like a used up filthy dirty whore. A fucking coke whore. That is what my future holds for me. I will never be able to move on and my family will need to lock me up in a psych ward because this amount of #NUTS is certifiable. 

all because of Vaughn fucking Asher and JA Huss. I am addicted to this series. I am addicted to Vaughn Asher and his "thumbs". Lesbehonest, I'm addicted to his cock too. 

But this installment wasn't about Vaughn Asher and his cock, or his amazing skills in the vagina department. This was about Vaughn Asher finding out what exactly he wants. This is Vaughn Asher at his most emotional self. 

It is also about Vaughn Asher claiming my heart and soul, making me melt and swoon for him. He put it everything out there and didn't hold back and 

BOOM 

I was screaming YES YES YES, GOD YES. This is perfection, this is exactly how it should be. VAUGHN ASHER you own every part of me. and then

BOOM.

I FUCKING WENT APE SHIT ON she who needs a dick shoved up her ass. I do not love she "who needs a dick shoved up her ass". I want to bitch slap her and shake her around the fucking room. 


UGH, She "who needs a dick shoved up her ass", has some explaining and groveling to do. HOW DARE SHE. 

I will no longer give her more of my amazing words. She better redeem herself in the next book, thats all I gotta say about it. 

JA Huss not only gives us more Vaughn Asher, but she finally gives us what she is best at and that's suspense. We are left with so many questions and I'm dying for more. My heart wouldn't stop beating and I felt like I might have a panic attack. 
JA HUSS can only give us one thing and that is greatness.



I’m in love with this series and with Vaughn Asher!! In my eyes, he can do no wrong! In BLOCK things get a little dicey with Vaughn & Grace’s relationship. Vaughn tends to be a bit of a control freak (which I think is cute) and this does not sit well with Grace, in fact this down right pisses her off! Things are smoothed over, but Vaughn does discover some dark secrets of Grace’s past. There are a lot of outside influences that affect their relationship in this installment.  I feel this was inevitable because of Vaughn’s celebrity status.
I really think Vaughn is a stand-up guy, Grace’s Night in Shining Armor………Maybe I am blinded by his beauty so I cannot see his faults. Grace on the other hand…..one minute I love her the next I want to strangle her. She can be strong, then wishy washy. She can be loving, then a down right bitch! UGH! I am going to blame all of her insecurities on her past because it is SO Fucking OBVIOUS that Vaughn is into her.

The ending is killer this time! I have a lot of ideas running through my head as to what exactly happened and how Vaughn is going to make Grace realize once and for all he is the one for her. To sum it up, I am TOTALLY ADDICTED to this series!!

Tyler's Undoing Excerpt & Trailer


TYLER'S UNDOING 
by L.P. Dover
Release Date October 6
Synopsis

She was what he wanted ... but she was also his undoing.

Through mutual understanding, Tyler’s secret affair with Gabriella Reynolds has come to an end.

It’s a decision that not only saves their friendship, but it’s one that will change his life forever.

For the past couple of years, Tyler Rushing has been known as one of the UFC’s most

memorable and sexy heavyweight fighters. Now he has the chance to win the title and claim the

fame he so deserves. He has everything he could ever want until Kacey Andrews walks through

the door of his gym, wanting nothing to do with him. Keeping his eyes off of her is a challenge;

there’s an innocence about her that draws him to her, and he’s not going to stop until he makes

her his. Little does he know that Kacey Andrews isn’t a stranger. She’s a part of his world; he

just doesn’t know it. It’s a secret she’s worked hard to keep hidden.

Kacey spent years trying to get away from the fighting world, away from the man who’s hated

among the MMA elite ... her brother, Kyle Andrews. Unfortunately, she’s brought back into it

when Tyler’s relentless battle for her heart wins her over, drawing her in. The only problem is

that secrets never stay buried forever. In the end, Tyler has a decision to make, and it’s one that

can possibly destroy his and Kacey’s life ... forever.

Trailer


Excerpt

Down the hall, I saw Gabriella, dressed in a white sundress with her long, dark hair pulled high into a

ponytail.

What the fuck? Tell me she’s not knocking on Tyler’s door.

My stomach coiled into knots and I held my breath as I waited on whoever was behind the door to

answer. Please don’t let it be Tyler. Slowly, the door opened just a crack and when I saw who was there I

gritted my teeth tight, the pain exploding into my head. It was Tyler, wearing only a white towel around

his waist. Blood boiling, I watched as he opened the door and she walked in, kissing him on the cheek as

she passed.

Frozen in place, I clenched my hands into tight fists and felt the anger boil through my veins. Before

Tyler shut the door, he stopped and slowly directed his attention to me. Immediately, he glanced into

his room and then back at me, wide-eyed and shaking his head. “Kacey, no,” he shouted. “It’s not what

you think.”

Turning on my heel, I glared at him one more time over my shoulder before taking off down the hall.

“Kacey, stop! Please, beautiful . . .”

I didn’t stop; I kept going. The last thing I wanted was to be made a fool of in front of everyone—

possibly people who knew my brother and who could recognize me. Instead, I kept running in hopes of

getting as far away as I could, away from Tyler’s voice screaming my name.

Looking back, I didn’t see him behind of me, but when I turned around, I ran right into a set of arms that

closed tightly around my waist.

“Kacey, what the hell are you doing here?”

Immediately, I froze and glanced up into the same set of sea green eyes I used to look at almost every

day of my life. “Paxton,” I breathed.

Tyler shouted my name and Paxton instinctively held me tighter, protectively. “What’s going on?” he

demanded, glaring down at me.

He looked like he was about to leave anyway since he was dressed in a black T-shirt and jeans with his

bag slung over his shoulder. Quickly, I pushed him toward one of the doors. “I can explain, but first, I

need you to get me out of here.”

“Is that Rushing calling after you?”

“Yes, now let’s go!”

Keeping his arm around me, he rushed me toward the door and out into the heat-filled night. What the

hell was I going to do now?

Blog Tour ~ Neurotica


neuroticabanner (1)

Neuro AmazonGRSW
About the Book:
If you find yourself talking to Jayne Dandy, keep the conversation on Star Wars and rubber ducks—best not to mention men, dating, or S-E-X. Because Jayne is fine with the way things are: writer of obituaries and garage sale ads by day, secret scribe of adventures in distant galaxies by night. But her crippling fear of intimacy has made her the butt of jokes since forever, and hiding behind her laptop isn’t going to get her lightsaber lit.

After her therapist recommends that she write erotica as a form of exposure therapy, Jayne joins forces with pen and paper to combat the demons that won’t let her kiss and tell. Unexpectedly downsized at work, she adopts a pseudonym and secretly self-publishes one of her naughty books to make ends meet. When her adorable, long-time friend Luke, co-owner of the popular Portland food truck Luke Piewalker’s, hears she’s been demoted, he insists on hiring her to sling éclairs and turnovers at his side. Her secret must be kept, but sparks ignite between them, sending Jayne and her X-Wing into a tailspin that will either make her face down her neuroses or trigger a meltdown of Death Star proportions.

My Review

I LOVE Eliza Gordon!! This is the second book I’ve read of her’s and was NOT disappointed! I really enjoy her writing style, light and witty. I love the voice she gives to her female leads. They are smart and independent, funny & lovable. Eliza is for sure an author that I will ALWAYS one click! I can depend on her to give me a great story, and Neurotica was just that, a GREAT story!
Jayne is a twenty-something, smart, funny, Sci-Fi Junky that just so happens to have issues with the S word……….SEX. No traumatic reasons as to why, just a weird quirk of hers, along with loving Ducks. She secretly writes Erotica via a pen name and when something happens is forced to publish her work to earn her some money. Luckily it takes off! But she does not want anyone to know it’s her……so she ropes in her friend to be her front.
Did I mention she has a crush on Luke “Pie” Walker?? The hot food truck owner that makes panty melting turnovers? They have tons in common, but Jayne is afraid to take it out of the ‘friend zone’ because as the mean girls in HS called her…….”Janie Prudie” she is afraid of SEX.
The side characters added a lot of funny escapades. Jayne’s best friend, the food critic, Luke’s quirky sister Leia and Jayne’s crazy neurotic family. ALL of these people helped Jayne realize that she needs to let go of her issues and not be ashamed of who she REALLY is!
This book was FUN, FUNNY, & SMART. It gave me all the feels without the sex. It made me happy while reading it and that will keep me coming back for more every time!

STAY WITH ME TRAILER: EXCERPT: As I lay there, trying to swallow a loud, obnoxious yawn, I remembered something he’d said when we first met, about life being too short. I imagined he had firsthand experience with shortened lives while he was serving. That mentality came from experience. I got that now. Could even understand it, but there was something I didn’t understand. “Why?” I asked. There was a beat. “Why what?” Jax sounded tired, and I should shut up or point out that I was now tired and could sleep, so he could leave. But I didn’t. “Why are you here? You don’t know me and . . .” I trailed off, because there really wasn’t anything left to say. A minute went by, and he hadn’t answered my question, and then I think another minute ticked on, and I was okay with him not answering because maybe he didn’t even know. Or maybe he was just bored and that was why he was here. But then he moved. Jax pressed against my back, and the next breath I took got stuck in my throat. My eyes shot open. The sheet and blanket were between us, but they felt like nothing. “What are you doing?” I asked. “Getting comfortable.” He dropped an arm over my waist, and my entire body jerked against his. “It’s time to sleep I think.” “But—” “You can’t sleep when you talk,” he remarked. “You don’t need to be all up on me,” I pointed out. His answering chuckle stirred the hair along the back of my neck. “Honey, I’m not all up on you.” I freaking begged to differ on that point. I started to wiggle away, but the arm around my waist tightened, holding me in place. “You’re not going anywhere,” he announced casually, as if he wasn’t holding me prisoner in the bed. Okay. The whole prisoner thing might be melodramatic, but he wasn’t letting me up. Not when he was getting all kinds of comfy behind me. Oh my God, this was spooning. Total spooning. I was spooning with an honorary member of the Hot Guy Brigade. Did I wake up in a parallel universe? “Sleep,” he demanded, as if the one word carried that much power. “Go to sleep, Calla.” This time his voice was softer, quieter. “Yeah, it doesn’t work that way, Jax. You have a nice voice, but it doesn’t hold the power to make me sleep on your command.” He chuckled. I rolled my eyes, but the most ridiculous thing ever was the fact that after a couple of minutes, my eyes stayed shut. I . . . I actually settled in against him. With his front pressed to my back, his long legs cradling mine, and his arm snug around my waist, I actually did feel safe. More than that, I felt something else—something I hadn’t felt in years. I felt cared for . . . cherished. Which was the epitome of dumb, because I barely knew him, but feeling that, recognizing what the warm, buzzing feeling was, I fell right asleep.   Stay With Me Teaser 2     STAY WITH ME Synopsis: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You and Be with Me comes a daring tale that pushes boundaries . . . At 21, Calla hasn't done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends. But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she’d left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming. Sexy and intense, Jaxis in Calla’s business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more.
