About the Author

I'm sort of international in terms of my parents' mixed-nationalities and where I've lived, but I think of myself as British. I spent my childhood in an idyllic Scottish country town. Now I live in Perth, Western Australia.
The idea for SHE came to me at the beginning of this year. I was working on a website as a freelance editor and I saw several posts about writers required for short erotic stories. My curiosity was sparked!!
I wrote the first two pages of SHE and something clicked within me. I knew I wanted to (had to) keep writing it and a plot formed in my mind soon after.
Because this was my first piece of erotic writing I had anticipated that SHE would be a short story, but once these characters got going they could not keep their hands off of each other
Very soon I surpassed the 100k mark and I had so much I still wanted to write, and so decided to cut SHE in Parts 1 & 2.
I published SHE part 1 a few weeks ago (have you got your copy yet?) Part 2 will follow next year.

Blog Tour and Review: Reparation (The Kane Trilogy book #3)

*Review at bottom of post*

The Devil has met his match
When Tatum O'Shea decides it's time for some payback, no one is safe from her new game - not even the devil himself. Tate is going to get her happily ever after, even if it means making everyone else unhappy in the process.
But a persistent Jameson, a meddling Sanders, and an amorous baseball player make it very hard for a girl to keep her focus, and suddenly it seems Tate has a few too many suitors for her fairy tale ending.
Sometimes, it's very difficult to tell who Prince Charming really is ...
WARNING: may induce Kindle throwing, screaming at fictional characters, and possibly a few tears. Also graphic sexual situations and sadomasochistic themes.

Goodreads Link

Jameson watched the Bentley pull up the driveway. Sanders got out of it, alone. They hadn’t spoken the entire time. Jameson hadn’t called – if he had, he probably would’ve lost his shit. And he didn’t want to do that. Sanders probably hadn’t called for the very same reason.
“Nice little vacation you had there,” Jameson commented, taking in Sanders’ rumpled suit.
“I wouldn’t say that,” the younger man replied, heading into the house and straight into the kitchen. Jameson followed him.
“I almost thought you had left with her,” he voiced his fear. Sanders stopped in front of a cupboard.
“I would never do that. I simply tried to reason with her,” he said.
“Oh really. And how did that go?” Jameson snorted. Sanders snorted as well and pulled open the cupboard.
“Not well. She is severly unbalanced.”
Jameson was a little shocked as he watched Sanders pull a bottle Jack Daniel’s out of the cupboard. He walked up next to him, watched as Sanders got a tumbler out of another cupboard and then poured about three-fingers worth of the amber liquid into the glass.
“She’s also a bad influence. What are you doing?” Jameson demanded. Sanders handed the glass to him.
“This is for you,” he replied. Jameson took the glass.
“Oh god, why?” he groaned, then knocked back the liquid.
“She offered to sleep with me.”
Jameson started choking on the whiskey. Sanders pounded on his back, but Jameson waved him away. Stumbled over to the sink and turned on the faucet, stuck his mouth underneath it. He must have heard wrong. He couldn’t believe it.
“I’m sorry,” he gasped for air, leaning against the counter. “You’ll have to repeat that. What happened?”
“Sex. She offered to have sex with me.”
“I see. Did you take her up on this offer?”
Oh my god. I have to kill Sanders. How am I going to do this? That stupid bitch …

About the Author 
Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ..., forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT. I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me. Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

(5 out of 5 well deserved STARS!)

You know, I actually had Degradation on my TBR list for longer than it should have been. The moment I started reading it, that was it for me. The series starts strong, ends strong, and the middle is filled with so much anticipation for what will happen next that you don't notice the time flying by while you read. There were so many ups and downs that I had no idea how it was going to end up, I had hopes of course but those tended to fluctuate while I was reading.
Reparation was a perfect conclusion to the series. I hope to see more about other characters in the future, especially Sanders, he was my fav!
Overall, Reparation had me hooked beginning, middle, and most definitely end. This series is one of my favorites of 2014, I highly recommend it but only if your okay with erotica novels with a twist.
I look forward to more books by Stylo Fantome, they'll get cuts in line on my TBR.

(5 out of 5 mermaid-a-licious stars) 

A quick review for Erica Cope's YA novella prequel to Sea Swept, Riptide.

I've been excited to start this series and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the author. It is a quick read but it's filled with such a great basis for Sea Swept. I look forward to reading more and watching the story unravel. Erica Cope's stories never disappoint! Be ready to dive into another great read! (Pun totally intended).
This is one of those books you can read in one sitting and be satisfied. I will warn you though, you will want to read Sea Swept as soon as you finish. I wanted to.

Book Review: Poppy (Behind the Words book #3)

Poppy Taylor is a successful hair, makeup, and clothing stylist with a client list packed full of elite musicians, actors, and celebrities. After months of touring with the bands, The Daughters of Darkness and the platinum selling rock group, From Yesterday, one final night changes everything. Will love evade her, as always, or will she find it in the least likely of places, in the arms of a rebellious rocker she never expected?

Riley Huntington is the bass guitar player for the rock band, From Yesterday. His bad boy exterior isn’t exactly the lifestyle he lives though. With his longtime relationship on the rocks, Riley finds himself alone and full of new feelings for a girl he never saw coming. When life gives him a chance to start fresh, will he take it?

When two unlikely people are thrown together during one night of passion, will sparks ignite a long-lasting fire, or will the temporary flame burn out before it ever has a chance to catch?

on the guest floor was rattling from the bass of the music blaring throughout
the rooms. I was sure that I had drunk close to my weight in tequila alone, not
to mention the large number of whiskey shots I had thrown back, but I was still
standing and I was feeling good; no, better than good: I was feeling fan-fucking-tastic as I moved my body
along with the beat of the rap song that was playing.  I threw my hands in the air above my head
before bringing them back down, trailing across my body as they went. Sweat was
beading across my collarbone as a few drops trailed their way down the valley
between my breasts. The melody was enchanting me, making me move provocatively
with every beat and I loved it.
my hips from side-to-side, I felt a large body step up to my swaying backside.
Most guys were my height or only slightly taller, but whomever was behind me
was taller than the average Joe. I continued to rock my hips back and forth as
I spun around to face my dancing partner and smiled widely when I took in
Riley’s large frame behind me. He looked as sexy as ever: black jeans hanging
loosely on his hips with a plain forest-green shirt stretched tightly across
his broad chest. He gripped my hips as I snaked my arms around his neck. When
we had first arrived at the party he had disappeared. I had assumed it was just
to get ready for the party but when he never returned I had quickly turned to
liquor to dull the sting of disappointment I’d felt.
looked up at him through my lashes as I rubbed my body along his to the beat of
the song. Riley’s hands were still gripping my hips as he rolled his large self
along with my rhythm. My liquor-induced bravery was taking control, and I had
to struggle to try and tame it. Riley’s hands pulled me gently until I was
completely flush against him and I felt him
straining against the zipper of his pants. I drew in a long heavy breath as he
moved his hands around my waist and splayed one of them across my ass while
resting the other on my back underneath my shirt. His skin was warm against
mine. I closed my eyes and took in the feel of his hand moving gently up and
down my spine as we continued to sway against one another, and I felt his
breath tickle the side of my neck.
dancing is as passionate as sin,” his words crawled slowly across my neck
causing the skin to rise with goose bumps. I shivered and leaned forward to
reply when I heard Jayde yelling for me to do a body shot from across the room.
on, Poppy!!!!!! Body shots!!!” her slurring voice called out before the next
song started up and Riley took a couple steps back.
watched his electric-blue eyes darken just a little as I called back to Jayde
and made my way through the crowd to the long bar that separated the kitchen
from the living room. I stumbled a little as I tried to maintain my balance in
the shoes I was wearing, but surprisingly I wasn’t falling all over the place
from the amount of alcohol I had consumed.
on up on the bar, it’s your turn!” Jayde spun around and pointed her index
finger at my chest. She was so care-free and unbelievably funny when she was
sober, but when she was drinking those same attributes about her seemed to grow
even more. Jayde was a knockout! I envied her different colored eyes: one green
and one blue. It was hard not to look back and forth between them whenever I
spoke with her.
you crazy?” I placed my hands on my hips and laughed. “I’m almost as long as
the bar, Jayde, and all of those alcohol bottles at the end will be in jeopardy
if I jump up there,” I laughed again as I twirled my hand around in the air
when I felt big hands latch around my waist.
you go,” Riley’s baritone voice was at my ear, sending chills across my skin. I
gasped from the unexpected contact as my bottom was placed against the cool
wood of the bar.
your legs bent and you won’t knock anything off,” Cash suggested as he grabbed
the bottle of tequila, the salt shaker, and a few lime slices. “Who’s up
first?!” He held them up in the air.
Jayde snatched the items from Cash’s hands. His eyes seemed to darken when she
said it. I wasn’t sure if it was due to the fact that she was going to be
taking a shot off of my body or the fact that he was head-over-heels in love
with her and wouldn’t admit it.
you taking it from?” I asked as I laid my body across the wood bar.
I suppose. It’ll hold the tequila the best,” Jayde shrugged as she plucked the
top from the bottle. I grabbed the hem of my belly shirt and pulled it off.
Apparently they weren’t expecting that because Cash let out a cat call that had
me blushing and Jayde cracking up. Most girls would have been ready to scratch
my eyes out if their man whistled at me like Cash had, but not Jayde. It was
just another reason why I loved having her as a friend.
was wearing a black lace bra that had studs running across some of the lace on
the front of the cups. It was a pretty bra, one of my favs…and apparently a new
focal point for Riley’s eyes. When he realized I was watching him staring at
the rise and fall of my chest, a wicked grin spread across his face. Yes, I had
a good-sized chest. No, I wasn’t born that way. I was the girl that was overly
tall but lacking in the boob department. Did I go overboard and get gigantic
tits when I got implants? Nope. I went with a full C-cup and you couldn’t
really tell that they were implants at all unless I had on a massive push-up
bra or you felt them.
poured the cool tequila into my navel and I felt my stomach contract from the
feel of it. I took a lime slice and placed it in my mouth as she trailed a line
of salt up my stomach and between my breasts. “Here goes nothing!” She called
out just before she dropped her mouth to my body, licking the salt from between
my breast to my navel before she sucked the tequila from my navel swiftly. Her
lips were on mine as she sucked the tart juice from the slice of lime resting
between my lips. Jayde pulled the lime from my mouth and I sat up enough to
brace myself with my elbows against the bar. We definitely had a crowd of
observers around us then.
looked over at Riley and felt my heart pick up the pace from its normal steady
beat. His electric-blue eyes looked like tiny lightning bolts were going off
throughout them. I had never seen him look so
intense. It was like something inside of him was ignited and I was hoping I
would find out just what that something was.
turn!” Cash stepped up but was quickly pushed back by Riley.
don’t think so, lover boy.” Cash’s face fell. “She’s all mine.”
three words bounced around inside my head.
She’s all mine.
knew he meant he was up next for the body shot, but the thought that it could
be something more was knocking loud and clear in my mind. I laid back against
the bar and felt the chill of tequila fill my navel again as I slid a new slice
of lime into my mouth. The grainy feel of the salt was back in the exact same
spot as before. I took a deep breath to try and steady my erratic breathing and
closed my eyes. There was no way I could watch Riley lick his way down my body,
suck tequila from my navel, and drop his lips to mine. The thought of it was
erotic enough, but watching him while he did it…that wasn’t anything I could
warm breath tickled the skin across my collar bone just before I felt his
tongue make its way between my breasts, skipping the area where my bra came
around, and continued down to my navel. My body was screaming for more as he
sucked the tequila up into his mouth. The loss of his tongue and lips on my
skin was devastating, but it quickly subsided as our lips connected, causing an
unexpected moan to escape from the back of my throat. Riley squeezed the lime
juice from the slice between my lips and discarded it onto the counter before
bringing his mouth back to mine. The tart juice of the lime lingered between us
as his tongue danced around mine, adding a hint of salt into the mix. The kiss
seemed to go on forever, but forever wasn’t long enough when Jayde’s voice
broke the spell.
there, Riley! Give the girl some room to breathe,” she drunkenly laughed and
Riley pulled his lips from me as fast as if I had burned him.
didn’t say another word before he walked off into the crowd of people dancing
and grabbed hold of some brunette that I didn’t know. I quickly looked away as
I slid down from the bar and put my shirt back on, hoping that the heat of
embarrassment that I felt in my cheeks wasn’t obvious to everyone else.
ya goin’?” Jayde asked as she filled a Solo cup and extended her arm to me.
“I need some
air,” I fanned myself with my hand and took the Bourbon-filled cup from her. I
needed to cut myself off, but seeing Riley all over some girl not even five seconds
after his tongue was down my throat left a bad taste in my mouth.

(5 out of 5 Stars)

This is one of the books I have been dying to read and let me tell you, it lived up to every expectation I had!
I absolutely love the female leads that Savannah writes. Poppy is... Hmm... I want to say "softer" than Arianna and Jade. I felt so anyways. I don't mean this in a bad way AT ALL. I loved Poppy she had the right amount of sweet and sass. There were parts in the book when I thought she'd bite her tongue but she ended up doing the exact opposite and it made me love her even more. She had her not so great qualities. i.e.- running away a lot. But, that just made me that much more captivated by her story and waiting to see what would happen next.
Nate... Oh my goodness NATE! He's totally one of my favorite characters from this series. There were times in the book when I wanted to reach into my Kindle and shake the hell out of him but I settled on shaking my Kindle instead or voicing my very loud opinions to the screen. Either way, he's a book boyfriend that you won't forget.
I have read the prior two books in this series (Arianna and Jade). I couldn't compare them side by side and say which is my favorite, they all have ups and downs. In poppy you relive a few curveballs and they were still a very sore subject for me. My heart was absolutely breaking all over again.
I would most definitely read this ENTIRE series again. It's one of my favorites and I'm so excited to read more from Savannah!
I would recommend reading the books prior to Poppy in the series that way you get to know the characters from the beginning and live through the experiences with them. It's such an amazing series and I would hate for anyone to miss out on these books.

Blog Tour & Giveaway - Wrong For You by Lisa Cardiff

Alec Reed, the drummer for Chasing Ruin, has secrets…lots of them. He can’t even remember a day without them because it all started before he was born. He’s spent his life trying to outrun his past, until he ends up back in the town where it all began.

Violet Emerson knows exactly where her life is going and exactly what she wants until Alec Reed walks into her life. With his dark tattoos and his sexier than sin eyes, Alec is everything her parents warned her about. She knows she should keep her distance, but something about him sucks her in and she can’t let go.

But will Alec’s secrets destroy everything?

He pried her fingers away from his hips and pulled her shirt over her head. His white-hot gaze seeped into her pours making her tremble. She reached out to pull him against her, but he wrapped his hands around her wrists, pinning her hands next to her hips on the kitchen counter. “Don’t move. Let me see you,” he said as his fingers whispered across the tops of her breasts so lightly her skin pebbled under his touch. “Do know how sexy you are?”
“Not sexy,” she mumbled because she didn’t think of herself that way. Cute, attractive, pretty maybe, but sexy she was not. Sexy was reserved for beautifully styled woman on the cover of a magazine with perfect clothes and hair. She didn’t have either and she really didn’t care before this moment. “Not compared to you.”
Alec chuckled as his lips twisted into a cocky grin. “You don’t know what you’re talking about.” He reached around her back unclasping her bra, sliding the straps down her shoulders with a reverential swipe of his fingers.
Her eyes fluttered as she arched toward. “You’re so out of my league. We’re not even in the same hemisphere.” She was the girl next door, whereas he was larger than life, living in LA, probably brushing up against stars, attending functions she couldn’t even fathom for his job at the agency. She wasn’t meant for that type of life.
His hands paused, no longer moving and she opened her eyes.
“What’s wrong?” she asked.
“Don’t say that. It’s not true.”
She opened her mouth to object, but he placed his finger over her lips.
“If anyone isn’t good enough here it me.” Darkness flashed across his face. He had secrets lots of them, she realized and a tinge of unease slithered down her spine. “I’m not a good person, Violet, but when I look at you, I want to be.” He looked up at the ceiling momentarily. “Maybe that counts for something,” he mumbled, his voice almost inaudible.

After spending years practicing law and a million other things, Lisa decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer and she must confess that inventing characters is so much more fun than writing contracts and legal briefs. A native of Colorado, she lives with her husband and three children in Denver. When she isn’t managing the chaos of raising three children and owning her own business, she can be found reading or writing a book.
