Book Review: How To Seduce A Gargoyle in 10 Days (A Wicked Tale) by Saranna DeWylde + giveaway

How To Seduce A Gargoyle in 10 Days
by Saranna DeWylde
A Wicked Tale
ARe Books
Genre: M/F, Paranormal , PNR
Got gargoyle?

Ginger Butterbean would like to, but she’s not sure how to go about it. Her marriage of a hundred years has crumbled to dust and she’s worried her witchy bits might be so full of cobwebs, they’ve malfunctioned.

She needs sexy gargoyle Slade Nightwing to remind her of what it means to be a witch and that love isn’t just a fairytale.

This is a very short and steamy read. It's all witchy bits and warlock wands. If you want to get a little taste of this magic world, then give this speedy read a try!

I would have liked to read something a tad bit longer, but for what you get there was a good helping of romance all laced with an adult Harry Potter feeling. While the main couple have a very rushed experience, things get hot and heavy pretty fast. It's maybe more of a sex slave type of book then anything else. Even though she seems to be the one giving more then receiving. But hey, with jacked up men this hot...who the hell cares!

Some funny-snarky parts add to the overall story, if you want to try a quick read that's entertaining then this one may just be for you!

Book Review: Revved (Axle Alley Vipers #2) by Sherilee Gray + giveaway

Revved (Axle Alley Vipers #2)
by Sherilee Gray

October 13th 2015
by Entangled: Indulgence 
He'll rev her up and drive her to the edge...

Rusty West swore she was done with men. Instead, she channeled her passion into West Restoration, the car shop she runs with her sisters. But Rusty's aloof composure fades when the owner of the competition comes striding into her shop, over six feet of sexy, rough-edged confidence…hot enough to send Rusty's motor into overdrive.

Reid Parker worked his ass off to get what he wants—and what he wants is West Restoration and its crew. He never expected to find a shop of all-female mechanics…or the stunning redhead who ignites a lust that threatens his cool. But Reid plays carefully. He never, ever gets involved with a woman beyond one night.

And no matter how hot the sparks, Rusty will never compromise her business for a man
Reid Parker grew up hard. Coming from nothing he had to work his ass off to get where he is. There was no way Reid was letting some local new shop steel his business, which is precisely what they were trying to do. Ready to battle he heads off to do exactly that, battle. Once he enters the shop however he absolutely did not expect to see a shop of female workers who were not only hot but who also had a natural talent in the restoration of the cars. They were good, really good. Now he can’t decide what he wants more, the hot co-owner or the whole shop with the lot of them with it. F-it Reid is going for it all. He gets what he wants right?

Rusty West, has poured her heart and soul into her new shop West Restoration that she runs with her sister and her best friend. She does not date, ever. This is her life and exactly how she wants it, until a 6 foot hot sexy male specimen walks into her shop. To top it he is her competition, so not what she needed right now, or is he exactly what she needs?

Rusty and Reid’s characters and relationship you could relate to. They both had to work hard to get where they are. Both are smart, tough and likeable characters. Gray really made you feel what they went and are going through. All the characters were in fact relatable you want to know their story. It definitely was a fun steamy read and recommended.

About the Author:
Sherilee’s always had a big (some may say warped) imagination, and as a kid scared herself conjuring up horror stories full of ghosts and other terrifying creatures. As she got older the stories changed quite a bit, but they were always there. Still, she never dreamed of actually writing down any of those wonderful imaginary people or places. Not until many years later when her sister introduced her to the wondrous world of romance novels, and her very large book collection.

She’s pleased to say, she still has the big imagination… only now her characters are chasing their happily ever after.

Sherilee Gray is a kiwi girl and lives in beautiful New Zealand with her husband and their two children. When she isn’t writing sexy, edgy contemporary romance or fueling her voracious book addiction, she can be found dreaming of far off places with a mug of tea in one hand and a bar of Cadburys Rocky Road chocolate in the other.

Guest Post: That awkward morning after... by Naomi Bellina (Sins of Long Ago book tour) + giveaway

 That awkward morning after

Have your ever woke up and wished you could go back in time and erase a few hours? You're in bed with someone you like, but you weren't quite ready to take it to the next level. Whether it was alcohol, a hot band, a full moon, or some other force fueling your passion, you ended up having sex. So now you have to gracefully escape. One of the best excuses is work. You can leave super early if you have a job to get to. No time for chatting, breakfast, or even coffee. If it's a weekend, you'll have to get more creative.

Let's say you actually want to stick around and get to know your friend better. What do you talk about? My advice, stick with the safe subjects. The weather, how good the band was, you'll have to get that sushi again, etc. Then, once you're out of bed (with or without another round of fun), gauge your partner's mood. Do they want to spend more time with you? If not, it's probably not personal; they need a little space and some time to process. If it turns out to be just a single encounter, be glad you used protection and carry on.

In Sins of Long Ago, Gen is rusty at dating and glad Vincent leaves her home early after a night of hot sex. She likes him, a lot, but needs time to herself. Of course, she has a curse that could kill her hanging over her head, so her situation is kind of unique.

How about you? Do you have a good morning after story? 
Thanks so much for letting me share with you, and thank you for reading!

Sins of Long Ago (Nocturne Book 2)
by Naomi Bellina
Genre: Paranormal romance
Publisher: Liquid Silver Books
Date of Publication: 7/27/2015
ISBN: 9781622102372
Number of pages: 189
Werewolves and humans don't mix. Until danger forces an alliance and desire demands satisfaction.

Leading his pack of werewolves keeps Vincent plenty busy, and now with a predator out to harm them, life is more perilous than ever. The last thing he needs is a woman to complicate matters, especially one who sets his body and soul on fire. She's a human and a witch — totally the wrong woman for him. Even if he could take a mate for his own, he refuses to put her in the danger his life has become. No way can they ever be together. Werewolf-style love is fine anyway. No permanent partner, no bullshit, no heartache.

Genevieve has never known true love. Cursed by an enraged woman long ago, females in her family are doomed to go insane if they fall in love. Life has been fine without a man around-- until a hot werewolf drops in and captures her heart. Though they have plenty of obstacles to overcome, Gen knows they can work past them. Tell that to Vincent, as he struggles with old pack rules about love, sex, and consorting with humans.

As Vincent searches for a killer, deals with death among his own, and tries to keep his hands off Gen, she attempts to end her family curse. Together, they must find a way to break free from the sins of long ago.
