5 Stars for Mayhem by Jamie Shaw!

When college freshman Rowan Michaels meets gorgeous, up-and-coming rock star Adam Everest, she knows a player like him is the last thing she needs after her ex-boyfriend shattered her heart. But she can't stop thinking about the kiss they shared on his tour bus.

On the first day of school, Rowan is stunned when Adam saunters into her French class. He's soon failing miserably, and, on a whim, she offers to tutor him. But Adam doesn't recognize her as a makeup-free, glasses-clad, college student- a far cry from the beautiful, mysterious "Peach" he met at his concert.

During a wild weekend on tour with the band, Rowan can't help falling for the guy buried beneath Adam's rocker persona. Yet she knows she could never compete with the girls constantly throwing themselves at his feet.

Peach is all Adam thinks about, though, and when Rowan realizes this, she has a decision to make: stay just friends and protect her fragile heart.... or reveal the truth about the night they met and admit she's fallen completely, hopelessly in love with him.
Five stars for Mayhem by Jamie Shaw. One glance at the Mayhem cover containing an endorsement quote from one of my favorite new adult authors, Jay Crownover and I knew this was going to be a rocking book.

I loved the way Adam and Rowan have a sexual attraction/connection at their first meeting, when Adam knows her as "Peach. Then when Adam re-meets her and doesn't recognize her as Rowan, they instantly start connecting on a more personal level. Their relationship develops at a perfect pace with the perfect amount of building sexual tension.

The banter and interaction between the band mates and Rowan's friends is fun, and makes me look forward to more stories from this cast of characters. Mayhem is a fun, sexy read that  I found hard to put down.  I look forward to reading more books by this debut author.

Release Day Blast: Fat Louise by Jamie Begley

Fat Louise
Biker Bitches #2
Jamie Begley
Young Ink Press

She needed a hero; instead, she got Cade.

Cade was no hero. He was a nomad, a wanderer with no ties and he liked it that way. Hired out to save Fat Louise and her spoiled sister from a cartel run Mexican city was a risk he was willing to take, for the right price. With a certain gray eyed woman on his mind, he sets out to find her, fuck her and forget her. No harm, no foul. But it's all easier said than done when it comes to this plain Jane.

He expected a biker bitch who knew the rules; instead, he got Fat Louise.

Fat Louise wasn’t about to put her crew in danger. She had to learn to handle problems on her own, even if they included a six-foot biker she was forced to rely on, if she was going to rescue her sister. She never expected to see Cade again after she'd left Mexico, but all it takes is one night with him to prove that even a bitch’s heart can be broken

"I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I've always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

COVER REVEAL: Becoming the Whiskey Princess by Toni Aleo


About The Whiskey Princess...
For better or worse, for richer or poorer, ‘til almost death do they part…

Amberlyn Reilly took a risk and found a new life in Ireland. She did something drastic and jumped in front of a loaded gun for the one she knew she couldn’t lose. And with her mother’s last request, she did more than fall in love. She fell into Declan O’Callaghan—with her eyes wide open and her damaged heart and soul leading the way.

When Irish-born Declan O’Callaghan spotted Amberlyn across the lake, he knew his life was about to change. And it did. Now he has everything he’s ever dreamed of —he’s marrying for love, and with that love, the family distillery will now be his as long as he marries before the deadline.

Things are moving fast. It’s now or never. And as their beautiful relationship grows, time is something these two don’t have a lot of. Declan’s and Amberlyn’s souls are tightly tethered, but will the questions and second thoughts of others prevent them from having a life they’ve both only begun to dream of? Will family and the obligations that come with the O’Callaghan name push them to their breaking point? Or has the Whiskey Prince truly found his happily ever after taking Amberlyn as his Princess?

Release (Fire On Ice Book 5)

NHL Player Orion Caldwell protects his own. He's an enforcer to his core, but he was the one left defenseless when his longtime girlfriend broke his heart. Now he's all about his game, but spending the off season in his hometown forces him to confront painful issues- both old and new.

Samara Cross just wants to be invisible. After living a nightmare, she came back to her hometown seeking solace. But her quiet new life is upturned by the hot, charismatic hockey player who's taken a sudden interest in her. 

Orion and Samara find something unexpected in each other, but when the hockey off season ends, so does their time together. They struggle with their separation, confronted by ghosts of the past and an uncertain future, discovering that sometimes the only way to hold onto something precious is to let it go.

Orion's job on the ice is to protect, it is also his nature off the ice. During the off season he travels home to help his mother and sister. His father recently passed away and his sister's no good husband is gone- leaving her with his niece and sick nephew to support. His first day back in his hometown he runs into Samara, a girl he went to high school with, but never really noticed until now.

Samara has a troubled past, growing up in the foster care system and recovering from a bad relationship, she is guarded. When Orion starts pursuing her, she has to fight the instinct to run. She slowly begins to let down her walls, to let him in, but can't put aside the thoughts of what will happen at the end of the summer when he returns to his NHL life and the lingering fear of her past coming back to haunt her... Only she's isn't the only one worried about the end summer... Will true love keep those two together? Or, will the stress of distance and troubled pasts push them apart?

I loved this sweet story. It was all I had hoped for Orion and then some! The author does a fabulous job of slowly building a relationship, making you fall in love with her characters and has you rooting for their happily ever after. I gave this book 5 STARS and I look forward to more from Brenda Rothert, she has firmly earned her spot on my auto-buy list.

This book is part of the Fire and Ice series, and while I recommend reading this entire series, it an certainly be read as a stand alone book. Fans of romance in general will love this book and if you love hockey romance it is just icing on the cake!
