About SHOPPING FOR A CEO'S FIANCEE

We skipped right over the whole fiancée thing and went straight from girlfriend to wife.
At least, I think that’s what happened. I woke up after my brother’s Vegas wedding reception with my luscious girlfriend in bed with me. We’re both wearing wedding rings. So is her coworker, Josh. And our Vegas chauffeur, Geordi. Who the hell am I married to? Unraveling this mystery will be as difficult as figuring out why Amanda and I are having panic attacks over the thought of being husband and wife. Or, whoever we’re actually married to. Oh, ^%$#. It’s true that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, with one exception: If she’s my wife, we’ll make it work. If she’s not? I’ll make it happen. Get the 9th book in Julia Kent's New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series as Andrew and Amanda sort out their wild Vegas night...and the rest of their lives.

Read a Sneak Peek of SHOPPING FOR A CEO'S FIANCEE:

“We’re not—you don’t really—we can’t be—” “Married?” She laughs, but it’s a brittle sound. “Come on. We didn’t actually have a wedding last night.” “We didn’t? You’re sure?” I perk up. Great. She remembers last night. I squeeze my eyes and try to recall something—anything—that happened after Declan and Shannon said their goodbyes at the reception last night. “I’m, well, I mean...” Twisting in my arms, she looks at me with those big, wide, trusting eyes, her left hand splayed against my bare chest, digging in where the robe has separated. “You don’t remember what happened?” My voice drops with uncertainty. Hers goes up. “No.” “Quit joking.” “Not joking.” “We both can’t remember any part of last night?” “When does your memory end?” I ask. Mascara is streaked along the corner of her eye, and any makeup she wore last night currently resides somewhere on my skin or on the bedsheets. I can only imagine what I look like. Amanda, though, is gorgeous. In my arms and looking at me with a perplexed expression, biting her lower lip while she flips through the filing cabinets of memory in her mind, and— “I don’t know.” I sit up. “You’re the fixer.” “I know! But I remember saying goodnight to Shannon, hugging Declan, and then—poof! Nothing.” Poof. “That’s when my memory ends, too,” I say, my skin beginning to crawl. “I know one thing: we did not have a foursome.” “And I soooooo did not sleep with Josh. He’s gay. The man can’t handle watching a birth video. A real-life vagina would send him into cardiac arrest.” “I know my heart pounds whenever I see yours,” I whisper. She gives me a reluctant smile, in spite of her hangover. “That was baaaaaad,” she groans. “All signs point to the sex question being put to rest. Worst case, all we did was sleep with each other,” I note. “Worst case? Buddy, sleeping with me is best case. Best case. Always best.” That was an unfortunate choice of words on my part. Before I can do damage control, she speaks. “What if we are?” she hisses. “Are what?” Her eyes dart to mine. “Married.”

Blog Tour and Review: Into the Light by Aleatha Romig



An investigator's search for a friend draws her into a world darker than she could have imagined.
Sara Adams awakes blind, unable to remember the most basic details of her life, but her darkness seems a blessing when she discovers the terrors of The Light. 
Stella Montgomery investigates the news on the mean streets of Detroit, where she’s noticed a disturbing trend: young women are vanishing. When her best friend disappears, Stella investigates—despite warnings from her police detective boyfriend—following a twisted trail that leads her through the city’s most dangerous and forsaken precincts. There she uncovers something more sinister than she could have imagined: a shadowy organization known as The Light, led by the enigmatic Father Gabriel.
As Sara struggles to understand her place in the strange world she’s awakened to—an oppressive cult demanding unquestioning obedience—and her feelings for Jacob, the husband she can’t recall and whose harsh and tender attentions confuse and beguile her, Stella risks all to discover the truth. But enlightenment always comes with a price...



EXCERPT 

Jacob leaned over me, his chest flattening my breasts. With our proximity in the darkened room, I could only make out his form, his shoulders, arms, and the silhouette of his hair against some distant faint light. There were no details. Hearing his familiar voice, without seeing his unfamiliar eyes, eased my anxiety. He smoothed the hair away from my face and kissed my nose. “We both follow Father Gabriel. You aren’t the only one who must obey the rules. I can’t question why you lost those memories any more than you can question me. All I can do is hold tight to the memories I have of us, for both of us. Even though you don’t remember my face, I remember yours.” He traced under my eyes, wiping away the remnants of tears. “I remember your beautiful blue eyes, the way they open with amazement at new discoveries and the way they flutter as you come apart beneath me.” He was back to stroking my hair. “I remember the first time we made love and every time since.
“I remember the first time I saw you, the first time I heard your voice, and”—he brushed his lips against mine—“the first time I kissed you.” He scoffed, “It wasn’t supposed to happen, but I couldn’t resist. I knew you were mine from the first time I saw you, even if you didn’t.”
His memories gave me a sliver of my past. “I didn’t?”
“No, not then.  You were dating someone else.”
“What? That was before we were here, right?”
“Yes, it was before everything.”
He sighed and laid his head back on his pillow. I was afraid he’d stop talking, yet more scared to ask him to continue. Thankfully, he didn’t stop, but when he resumed speaking, his voice had a faraway tone, as if he was seeing it all again.
“You were laughing, and I thought you were one of the prettiest women I’d ever seen. You have a great laugh.” He reached for my hand and intertwined our fingers. “I know this crash course in remembering how to be an Assemblyman’s wife hasn’t given you many opportunities for laughter. That’s why I want your memories to come back. Sometimes it seems like we’re back at the beginning. I want to be beyond that . . .” He was back up with his elbow beside me and his head on his hand. Looking down at me, he continued, “To where you laugh instead of cry.”
“I’m sorry.”
He touched my lips. “To where you’re not constantly apologizing.”
I kissed his finger. “I’d like that too, but you have to admit, this hasn’t been easy. I mean my eyes, leg, and ribs. I’ve just gotten my sight back. We’ve been banished, and my hair is gone.”
“I do.” He exhaled. “I admit that it’s been a rough few weeks, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
“The Light?” I asked with a smirk.
“Yes. See? It’s something everyone wants.”


**** 4.5 Star Review ****

I have struggled with this review for DAYS. Just like Aleatha's previous books, everything I want to say needs to be explained. If I explain it, then I am giving away things I shouldn't give away.

This book, in true Aleatha fashion, is a total mind bender. Clues everywhere that you don't know are clues until you get to the end. Twists and turns out the wazoo. Characters that make you scratch your head wondering what the heck. A plot so twisty you will get whiplash.

I just couldn't put this book down. I think aside from Insidious, this is my favorite book of hers. I just can't explain it. It's pure genius. It has left me with a serious hangover. Aside from the plot twists, this one is like nothing Aleatha has written. It is so unique and mind-blowing, you will be begging for answers.


Aleatha Romig is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who lives in Indiana. She grew up in Mishawaka, graduated from Indiana University, and is currently living south of Indianapolis. Aleatha has raised three children with her high school sweetheart and husband of nearly thirty years. Before she became a full-time author, she worked days as a dental hygienist and spent her nights writing. Now, when she's not imagining mind-blowing twists and turns, she likes to spend her time a with her family and friends. Her other pastimes include reading and creating heroes/anti-heroes who haunt your dreams!
Aleatha released her first novel, CONSEQUENCES, in August of 2011. CONSEQUENCES became a bestselling series with five novels and two companions released from 2011 through 2015. The compelling and epic story of Anthony and Claire Rawlings has graced more than half a million e-readers. Aleatha released the first of her series TALES FROM THE DARK SIDE, INSIDIOUS, in the fall of 2014. These stand alone thrillers continue Aleatha's twisted style with an increase in heat. 
In the fall of 2015, Aleatha moved head first into the world of dark romance with the release of BETRAYAL, the first of her five novel INFIDELITY series. She also began her traditional publishing career with Thomas and Mercer. Her books INTO THE LIGHT and AWAY FROM THE DARK will be published through this mystery/thriller publisher in 2016.

Release Day and Review: Weightless by Kandi Steiner



I remember the lights. 

I remember I wanted to photograph them, the way the red and blue splashed across his cold, emotionless face. But I knew even if my feet could move from the place where they had cemented themselves to the ground and I could run for my camera, I wouldn’t be able to capture that moment. 

I had trusted him, I had loved him, and even though my body had changed that summer, he’d made sure to help me hold on to who I was inside, regardless of how the exterior altered. 

But then everything changed. 

He stole my innocence. He scarred my heart. He took everything I thought I knew about my life and fast-pitched it out the window, shattering the glass that held my world together in the process. 

I remember the lights. 

The passionate, desperate, hot strikes of red. The harsh, cruel, icy bolts of blue. 

They symbolized everything I endured that summer. 

And everything I would never face again.

Amazon   /   Goodreads


**** 4.5 Star Review ****

Words have escaped me. Like, literally flew out the window. This book left me breathless and speechless. This is the first book of Kandi's I have read (I know I suck.), but it definitely won't be my last. I honestly wanted to read this because I loved the cover so much. Then I peeked at the synopsis and knew I had to read it.

This book is so many things. It is a little sick and twisted. It is a little sweet. It is a little rough. I can't even begin to tell you all of the things that are in this book.

I have debated on what to write in this review for days. I am still a little lost with what words I should and shouldn't give you. On the surface, this is a story of love and loss in more than one way. But it is a story that is told from such a deep place, that it holds you captive from start to finish.

I think that it is important for me to talk about the pacing of this story. Some people like everything to just happen. Bam. Right away. Not me. I prefer a slower build to things. I like progression. This one is told in the perfect build up for the plot and sub-plots, that once things get real, they are real. You will feel so many emotions by the time you are nearing the end.

I am always nervous with authors I haven't read yet. I always want to like their books. I prayed that this one would win me over. In my mind, with a cover like that, it better. (I know, judging the book by its cover. How can you not with this one?) Kandi's writing spoke to me from beginning to end. Her storytelling is written from such a place that I don't think anyone can ever match.


Excerpt:

“I just don’t understand,” he said as he began rolling the ball up my calf. I moaned out loud, realizing that area was packed with trigger points, as he had called them. 

“Don’t understand what?” I asked, still holding my breath as he rolled over my other calf. I leaned up on my elbows and turned my head back to meet his eyes.

He paused, holding the ball in place as he gazed back at me. “How could I never have noticed you before?” 

I swallowed, almost more afraid of the brief tenderness I caught in his eyes in that moment than the usual hardness that existed there.

Shrugging, I answered his question just above a whisper. “I’m easy to miss.”

I held his eyes for a moment more before laying my chest back to the ground, resting my head on my arms. He started rolling the ball up my hamstrings and I closed my eyes tight. I thought I might explode from the mixture of pain and pleasure that rocked through my body. After a few moments, he spoke again.

“Maybe I just wasn’t looking.”


Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer. 

Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her "freedom of press." She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).

When Kandi isn't working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine - not necessarily in that order.

Feeling a little nostalgic...

characterized by or exhibiting feelings of nostalgia.
synonyms: wistful, evocative, romantic, sentimental; More

1.
a nostalgic person.

Five Christmases ago, I begged my (now) husband for a Kindle Fire. He didn't understand why I wanted one. I didn't really read anymore back then. He just thought I wanted it because of my always wanting new technology. But it wasn't that. I was seeing how much cheaper eBooks were and I was longing to read, a lot. Of coarse, me being spoiled, he bought me one for Christmas.

And so it began. For the next year I read book after book after book. Some good. Some really bad. I didn't really care. I was absorbing all of the words and couldn't have been happier. At one point, I just didn't know what to read. There were so many books at my disposal, but I wanted that next great book. I stumbled across of a few book blogs. Many were talking about the same books, so I went and 1-clicked. And then 1-clicked some more... You get my drift.

Exactly one year after I got my Kindle, I woke up and decided I wanted to share my love for reading with everyone. So, I started my own blog. At first, I had no clue what I was doing. I was just trying to figure out how to write reviews and get people to read them.

I quickly found out how the "book world" worked. Everyone, for the most part, supported one another. I was connecting with other bloggers, authors and readers. I was so over the moon at how quickly I was welcomed and embraced. It became an addiction.

Over time, my blog grew and grew. I am not blind to how my blog grew. It was because of authors, readers and bloggers, not just me. That is what this post is really about. A big thank you to everyone for following me, supporting me, reading my reviews.

How do I measure the success of my blog? Not by the number of "followers" I have. Definitely not by the dollars I make, since I make NONE. But by the support and love from the community itself. A big part of that is the authors. If I didn't have support from authors, I wouldn't have a blog. It really is that simple. Even if no one read my reviews, I would still have the authors.

Now comes the reason for the title of this post... Nostalgic. I sat on my porch last night, daydreaming. All of a sudden I was thinking about the authors who took a chance on me... although they thought I was taking a chance on them. Maybe it was a little bit of both.

I think back to the authors that were just starting out, just as I was. They just wanted people to read their books, and I just wanted to read all of the books. It was a win-win for both of us. I was new. They were new. We fit. Now, I sit back and look at how successful each and everyone of them are and I have to smile.

Although I love every author I have come in contact with over the years, these are the authors that I will always read and support no matter what. They hold a special place in my heart. We were trying to be seen and heard at the same time. Without the support of each other, that would not have been possible.

Now that I have completely bored you to death, I just want to share with you some of the authors I am talking about, so you can see I really am not just a rambling fool right now...

Before I tell you who these authors are, just know that these aren't the only authors that I adore. They aren't the only authors that I will always read and support. They aren't all of the authors who I have read since their beginning. These are the authors who were new when I was new... Who either messaged me asking me to take a chance of their book, or I signed up with a promotions company to take a chance on their new book in my first year of blogging! So basically, we started out together. I may forget one or two. It was a reading-filled year!!!

Into the Light teaser 2

Sara
Though I’d hoped to learn more about his meeting, with the events of the day and the warmth of his silent embrace, in no time at all, I began to drift off to sleep. I was nearly there when Jacob moved. Rolling me to my back, he hovered close and smoothed my long hair away from my face.
“Are you still awake?” he asked, his minty breath blowing over me.
“Yes.”
“I’m sorry…”
His simple apology had my full attention. I wasn’t sure I remembered hearing those words from him.
“…I meant to tell you how well you did at service.”
I smiled. “Thank you. I was scared, but Raquel and Elizabeth were with me the entire time. And Brother Benjamin,” I added, suddenly fearful of not acknowledging that a man had helped. He continued to run his fingers through my hair. “I didn’t want you to think that I’d been quiet because of anything you’d done. You were perfect.”
It was difficult for me not to ask the questions running through my tired mind, but Lying on my back helped me remember. “Thank you, Jacob. I want you to be proud. I’m sorry that I embarrassed you. I’m sure that’s what Father Gabriel was speaking to you about.”
His hand and breath stilled, as if he was considering his words carefully. “We’re leaving the clinic tomorrow. However, instead of going to our apartment, we’ll be staying at the pole barn for a while.”
“I don’t remember our apartment or the pole barn, but I’ll go wherever you take me.”
His lips brushed mine. The light touch ignited a park that detonated flickers of yearning throughout my body. I lifted my lips to his, wanting more than the chaste endearment.
“Sara, I…” Jacob didn’t complete his sentence; instead his hand slipped behind my heard, pulling me toward him. His kiss, no longer apathetic, devoured. Zeal radiated from his lips, and soon his breaths were labored. Like magnets we were drawn toward one another, closer and closer. My body liquefied, becoming pliable to his touch, while conversely, his hardened, ready to claim what was already his.
As the heat of our passion washed over us, I forgot my punishment. My attention went elsewhere. A tug on my hair propelled my head to tilt, while the persistence of his minty tongue encouraged my lips to part. Whimpers and moans reverberated in my mouth and bubbled forth. They were wordless sounds declaring my body’s approval.
The large, strong hands that had delivered pain now brought pleasure. I reached for his broad shoulders, opening my arms and willfully surrendering to his kisses. With a palpable hunger, his mouth moved from my lips to my neck and down to my collarbone. His actions sent shivers to my toes and tremors to my insides. Each kiss moved lower until he reached the neckline of my nightgown. The bra I’d worn to service was gone. My breaths quickened as each button cam undone, leaving me bare and exposed to his desires.
The sound of my heart echoed in my ears as he praised my beauty and whispered admiration for what was his. When he wasn’t speaking, his lips moved lower as his five o’clock shadow tantalized my sensitive skin. It was as his skilled fingers joined the assault, kneading my breasts and twisting my hardened nipples, that primal sounds came from in my throat. It wasn’t that I feared speaking. It was that words weren’t forming. Wanting what he could give, I reached for his head, wove my fingers through his hair, and pulled him closer.
Suddenly he stopped and pulled away, leaving me open to the cool air.
Dazed and chilled, I reached for my nightgown. Embarrassed and hurt, I began to button it.
“Did I do something wrong?”
