Review – Branded Anthology – Various Authors


B.L. Wilde, Jeanne McDonald, Jo Matthews, Mary Elizabeth, and Sarah Elizabeth give us five good reasons why good girls love bad boys. The men of Branded are sexy, adventurous, and troubled deep into their souls. There may be no redeeming them, but at the risk of losing everything, these good girls must decide if loving their bad boy is indeed worth the cost.



I’ll review each story separately, then give my thoughts on the anthology over all at the end.

Condemned – B. L. Wilde – 3*


Although the story was set in the US, and the author/editor did a great job with catching the Britishisms, a couple snuck through and disrupted my flow a little, but no so much as to ruin the story for me. It may only be I caught them because I’m a Brit myself. The one thing that did ruin my reading flow were the short and choppy sentences, a lot of them beginning ‘I’. It just broke up my fluidity of reading at times.

The premise of the story was a great idea, but I felt it needed a little more refinement to make it that touch more relateable and enjoyable and to suck the reader into Clay’s world. He’s supposed to be fuming with anger and out for revenge, but these emotions didn’t jump off the page at me, and his back story came across as a little cliche.

Renegade – Jeanne McDonald – 4.5*


I was sucked into the story from chapter one, instantly being drawn to Lucy and her internal struggle after the shooting which was beyond her control.  It’s a shame I can’t stand the Beatles, because there are references to the band throughout the story which made me laugh.

That first kiss – hot damn, it was amazingly hot and made me want to curl my toes! It was a classic bad boy meets chick cop story with a slight twist which I loved. My only issue (and the reason i didn’t give it 5*), was I wanted more. McDonald could quite easily make this a full novel.

Desolation – Jo Matthews – 3.5*


It was a bit of a slow burn at the beginning of the story, with some confusing POV switches. I found myself having to read back a few lines now and then to remind myself who’s POV I was reading.

really wanted to feel sorry for Liam and the situation he had been forced into, but i couldn’t. I couldn’t connect with him due to his cocky attitude. However, I did enjoy the way Matthews moved the story along with quite large time jumps.

The ending, for me, was a bit unbelieveable with the way his mother finds him, but it gave Liam a softer side that I appreciated.

Low – Mary Elizabeth – 4*

low (2)

I was instantly drawn into the story and ‘Low’ is likeable and the way he is written really makes you root for him throughout the story.

The struggle face by Low and posey is a very real one, one that many readers could relate to, which I think is the biggest draw to this story. Everyone, when faced with the trouble they are faced with, has quite possibly considered the choices these characters make. They may not have acted upon them for whatever reason, but the ideas have been there at the back of the mind.

The only issue I had with this story was the abrupt ending. I was happily reading and then pow; the end. I WANT more. I NEED to know what happens to these 2 crazy in love kids and I have FAR too many questions!

Don’t Let Me Go – Sarah Elizabeth – 3.5*


I was a little confused by this story, but I pushed on and read the entire thing. I did enjoy it thanks to the dialogue which felt very natural. I did continue to struggle to follow the story a little, but that didn’t  prevent me enjoying it.

The moments between ‘lamb’ and CL when they were alone were very sweet and never once felt rushed. They fit with the storyline and I was totally rooting for the two of them. My favourite moment was when she asked what ‘CL’ stood for – it was funny, cute, and completely endeared him to me.

The ending… I wasn’t sure whether to be shocked, cry, or smile. It was a little expected, but that didn’t mean I wanted to read it, yet it was a natural end to the story.

Over All – 4*

All in all, this anthology is a great collection of stories about bad boys in different guises. Some were a little cliche, but mostly, the ideas of the stories were great. Some could have used a little more refinement or extending. Well worth a read, but I wouldn’t read all in one sitting. The stories are great to read one at a time, picking up and putting down when needed.

by Kris Thompson


Release Date: November 13 , 2014

“It’s better to die on your feet than beg on your knees.”


Lillian Locke had the perfect life in Boulder, Colorado. She had the boyfriend of her dreams, a wonderful family, awesome friends, and a spot on the track team at a great college. There wasn’t anything life could throw at her that she couldn’t get through . . . until he found her.

Lillian never could have imagined being abducted and chained up in the dark. Worse yet, being just one of many girls kidnapped and held captive by a madman. All she can do now is hope that she survives the brutality of their captor long enough to find a way to free herself and her new captive friends.

When Richard Haines’ girlfriend goes missing, he makes it his personal mission to find the woman he loves and bring her home to the safety of their loved ones. Seeking the help of friends and family, Richard abandons everything except for his pursuit of Lillian. But when someone else close to Richard goes missing, and the bodies of the abducted girls start showing up in the hills outside Boulder, the only thing he can do is hope that he finds her before it is too late.

Blog Tour – Slate – Maria Lisa DeMora

Slate Blog Tour banner


Andrew Jones grew up in a small town in Wyoming, and as a teen watched his family implode following the death of his father. Driven by the need to provide for his little brother, he begins looking for work, restlessly traveling from job to job on his Indian motorcycle, seeking something he cannot define.

Meeting Davis Mason, President of the Rebel Wayfarers MC in Chicago is a pivotal event in his life, and over the following years he gradually becomes Slate, assuming the persona as first a prospect into Mason’s MC, then as a full patch member. He has finally found the brotherhood he longed for, a sense of connection and belonging…a family and home.

The only thing missing from Slate’s life is a woman who can love him…all of him. He finds his match in a daughter of the MC, and his dreams become filled with her silent smiles, unruly red hair, and soft curves. Slate works to gain her trust, but as their relationship slowly begins to grow, ghosts from their previous lives threaten to ruin everything and put the woman he loves in grave danger.

Can he save her from dangers drawn to her by the past, or will she and their love be a casualty of conflict caused by the club.

Meet the Author

Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available, I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”

Oatmeal is her comfort food. She hates gardening but loves flowers; not cut arrangements, but in the wild, outside. She has a deep and abiding respect for our military. Her dad was career Air Force, and parades make her cry.

A serious hockey fan, she’s loyal to the Edmonton Oilers, and the local ECHL team, the Fort Wayne Komets, are a fav of hers. She has season tickets and even tries to hit the road games within a hundred-mile radius.

On music, she says, “I love music of nearly any genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap, hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars. If said bar has a good selection of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”

Cover Reveal – Zombified – Maggie LaCroix

cool TWCS logo

A Cover Reveal

by Maggie LaCroix
Release Date: August 28 , 2014

Zombified-3D-Paperback-eReaderMonsters know their place: vampires are sexy; zombies just decompose. But Maggie La Croix’s Zombified conjures up an entirely different kind of undead raised by good old-fashioned Voodoo. These gorgeous walking corpses are spared the indignities of putrefaction.

Take Henri Jolicoeur. More than one hundred years after his death he is still a bewitching Adonis. But zombification does have its downsides—a powerful Voodoo priest who enslaved Henri, his teenage zombie sister, and five other poor souls. That is, until a hurricane devastates Louisiana and breaks the curse.

Enter Josie Cortez, a Texas newspaper reporter who desperately needs a good story to get her editor off her back. One look at Henri and his weird little family and she knows she’s struck journalism gold. But strange, dark things keep happening around Henri. Falling for a man without a heartbeat could get her more than a broken heart. It could get her zombified.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen she first embarked in fiction writing, Maggie thought, Piece of cake. After all, she’d been a newspaper reporter for ten years; writing was her daily bread. But Zombified, her first novel about a band of sexy zombies, was anything but easy. The story wasn’t conveniently laid out for her at a press conference; it had to be coaxed out of her own imagination. Plot points resisted solving, descriptions meandered, and characters misbehaved. But just when things seemed bleakest, it happened. Maggie fell in love with it all: the zombies, the love story, and even the rituals of writing.

Maggie likes her leading women flawed and her science fiction sexy. She went to school for journalism and political science. She lives in the United States.

Lissa Bryan

Release Date: 21st August 2014
Genre: Dystopian
ISBN e-book: 978-1-61213-264-8
Available from: Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and TWCS PH

After surviving the Infection and a perilous journey through the wasteland that was once the United States, Carly and Justin have found a safe home in the isolated town of Colby.
Even so, balancing the duties of survival and a growing family isn’t easy. As they emerge as leaders, they face difficult questions about justice in a lawless land, basic human rights, and freedom in a world where strength defines worth. More than ever, they have to rely on one another for strength and support during the darkest of times.

It’s a journey down the long and broken road through The Land of the Shadow.

Guest Post: 

Everyone is in love with Sam, he is a big favourite in your series. Do you have a strong love for wolves/dogs? Do you have a dog like Sam in your life?I do have a strong affinity for canines and I think that comes across in the books. Dogs and wolves are different creatures, of course, but their social structure and intelligence are similar. Exploring those similarities and differences has been one of the things that made writing this series so enjoyable.I’ve always had dogs in my life, from the time I was very young. All of them have been rescue animals, so I’ve dealt with dogs of a lot of different backgrounds and have seen their remarkable ability to adapt to their situations. They’ve taught me how attuned canines are to our body language—sometimes they know what we’re thinking even before we do.One in particular helped shape Sam.  She was the most intelligent canine I have ever encountered. Honestly, if I tried to put some of the things she did in a novel, no one would believe it. I get incredulous looks whenever I tell stories about her.

Most of my experience with wolves, has been from a distance —alas— since they’re extinct in this part of the country.  All I can do is watch nature videos and uploaded footage from wildlife rehabilitation centers, and read research papers on their behavior. Sam is special, but I wanted his behavior to be believable.

Carly knows that Sam isn’t a dog, and she carefully monitors his behavior for any danger signs. He was intensely socialized with her as a pup, so he’s bonded to his human “pack,” and he has a submissive nature. However, Carly has to always be alert when around others to make sure that Sam’s nature doesn’t cause problems.

Sam has been a great character to write about, and I’ve learned so much in my research. I’m really going to miss writing about him now that the trilogy has finished.

We got a little glimpse of how Carly met Sam in the first book, but we get to see a bit more of the scene in the second. I thought I share it with you here, a little sneak peek of The Land of the Shadow:

She passed by a small alley between the buildings, and a rattle made her jump and fumble for the nine iron tucked into the basket.

Behind one of the buildings was a pile of trash, and one of the bags was moving. Carly stared at it and watched as it shook. She railed at herself for being an idiot, even as her feet carried her forward. She was likely to see something awful on the other side of that bag, a rat maybe. She kept close to the wall until she was close enough, then craned her neck.

A small, black-brown ball of fur was pulling at the black plastic. Carly must have made a small sound, because it looked up at her, its blue eyes shining.

“A puppy!” Carly gasped. It was the first dog she’d seen in a long while. The news had said dogs and cats were just as susceptible to the Infection as humans. At the sound of her voice, the puppy ran toward her, and tears stung her eyes. It was so desperate at the sight of another living creature that it ran to her without hesitation, without fear. She bent to pick it up. It wiggled in her hands, licking every bit of skin within reach of its tiny pink tongue. Carly laughed and rubbed behind the little flopping ears.

The thing was so small, it couldn’t have weighed more than a pound or so. Her fingers felt little but bone and fur. She lifted it to peer underneath. A boy. His little paws swam in the air, and she laughed again. She smiled when he licked the tip of her nose . . . an honest smile. It felt like so long since she had done that.

She plunked the puppy into the child seat and pushed the cart back to her building. It took three trips to carry up all the bags up to her apartment one-handed, but she found she didn’t want to put the puppy down. She even held on to him as she put the food away into the cupboards.

She also talked to him while she worked, though she knew he could not understand. It didn’t matter if he didn’t understand. It felt good to let the words pour out of her, to tell someone else about what had happened. When her voice broke, he looked up at her with a curious tilt of his head.

“I’ll be okay,” she told him. She had to be okay now. She had another creature depending on her.

Her mind already on the things she’d need to get from the grocery store for him, Carly took her backpack from the closet and folded a towel in the bottom and zipped it up so he could poke his head out.

Back at the store, she felt no hesitation at entering, her mind on the supplies she needed: puppy food, flea and tick repellant, dewormer. She took almost as many supplies for the dog as she had for herself, she reflected with a grin as she carried her bags back to the apartment.

She spooned some of the mushy meat into the little plastic dog bowl she’d bought, and he attacked it. He was so small, he should probably still be drinking his mother’s milk, but this was the best she could do. He ate until his tummy bulged and then crawled over to curl up on Carly’s lap. He slept so soundly, he didn’t wake when she moved him over to the sofa where she could be more comfortable. She was surprised at how soothing she found petting the puppy.

The sun was setting when he opened his eyes and looked up at her with a little wag of his tiny tail. His expression was so sweet, so warm, hopeful, and trusting. It reminded her of Sam’s earnest expression in The Lord of the Rings, the last movie she and her father had watched together.

“Sam,” Carly said. She picked up the puppy to rub her cheek against his fur, and quoted Frodo’s words to him. “I’m glad you could be here with me, Sam. Here at the end of all things.”

A Cover Reveal


Eight Days a Week

by Amber Johnson


Release Date: November 6 , 2014



Andrew Lyons has been running from responsibility his entire life. Returning home after a couple of years abroad, he finds himself jobless and living in close quarters with a sister he can barely tolerate. At her request, he searches for a job on Craigslist, but finds a room for rent instead. Or so he thinks.

Gwen Stone is in a lurch. With a new promotion at work and two young children at home, she’s in dire need of a caretaker. When Andrew shows up on her doorstep, she thinks he may be exactly what she’s looking for. When she offers him the job, he’s more than interested and she’s confident she’s made the right choice.

It shouldn’t be awkward at all.

But Andrew isn’t exactly forthcoming about his intentions, and Gwen has some secrets she’s unwilling to share. When the mom and the “manny” don’t have a clue what they’re doing, things are bound to get messy.

What do you get with two kids who don’t know how to be kids, a man who never grew up, Beatles Rock Band, and hundreds of hours of kids’ TV? A very interesting job, indeed. But when emotions get in the way, there’s more at stake than just an occupation.

Because life doesn’t have clock-out button. And neither does love.

Amber is a full-time mom and a full-time wife who is employed full time and writes when she can. She believes in Happily Ever Afters that occur every day—despite the obstacles real life serves up on a regular basis. Or perhaps they’re sweeter simply because of them. She always has two rubber bands on her wrist, a song in her head, and too much creamer in her coffee cup that reads ‘Cocoa,’ because she’s a rebel.

If she’s not at her desk, with her boys, or behind the computer, she’s supporting live music with her arms raised above her head and her eyes closed, waiting for the drop.
