About the Book

At a film festival in a small mid-western city, runaway teenager, Lilly has come looking for old boy, Bobby. He’s a dangerous man with powerful connections, but he owes her money and she’s desperate enough to come looking for it. In this Southern Ohio based crime novel, everyone’s got secrets. But Lilly’s about to find out, the worst type of secret its the one you keep from yourself.

Desperate, impulsive and self-centered are just a few adjectives that comes to mind regarding Lilley / Carol Ann. Not completely convinced if the streets made her that way or it's just her nature. Reading No More Birthdays put me in the mind set of Pretty Little Liars, where I was thinking if you just tell the truth and stop doing things on impulse things could get better. If that was to happen, unfortunately there would not be a story.

Runaway teen, Lilly is a complete trainwreck. On the trail of someone for her past she lands in a no name town with only a few bucks to her name or a place to stay in hopes to collect what's she owed. Normally I'm firm believer that if you do the work you should get paid. Although there are situations that you should just walk away from.Her actions made me crazy. I wanted to scream “Stop! What are you doing?” I wish she would allow someone to either help her or somehow forcibly get help.

I’m not sure what caught my attention first the updated cover or the blurb, but I knew I had to give Lissa Pelzer writing a try. The story flowed smoothly and while sometimes annoyed I remained on edge until the last page. No more Birthdays is told solely from Lilly’s POV, which is normally not my thing. I’m convinced it worked for me because of all of the nonsense that was going on.

While the story doesn't necessarily leave you with a cliffhanger,which I'm rather pleased with. You are left with a “what just happened moment” and for that I will be in full attendance for the follow up Dead Memories

About the book

Sometimes the best thing a good girl can do is make a bad decision.

Jessica has always been the girl with her head in the clouds and her nose in a book, only dating the “nice guys”. But when rough-around-the-edges Viking-biker-god, Mad Max, and his precocious little girl move onto her street, Jessica falls hard and fast for both of them.

Max is no stranger to women wanting to share his bed—and he’s always been more than happy to oblige them all. He’s lived wild all his life—that is, until a daughter shows up on his doorstep and he meets a redheaded angel down the block.

There’s nothing more he wants than to claim Jessica as his, to bring the gorgeous spitfire to his bed. But a man like him doesn’t get a happy ending with a woman like her. He’s got a whole other life, one he’s kept secret for good reason.

If Jessica found out what he really is, there’s no way she could love him. He should keep his hands to himself. But he’s Mad Max—he’s never done the right thing, and he’s not going to start now.

Warning: Contains a dominating alpha male who’s a lot more than he seems, and a good girl with a swirl of flavors under her vanilla.

A woman with the heart of a revolutionary,
The mind of a pragmatist,
And the inappropriate humor of your tipsy BFF...

Born in California and raised in South Florida, I've moved around like a gypsy with a bounty on my head ever since. Along the way, I've worked as a community organizer, a professional matchmaker, an art teacher, a popular blogger, and a crisis counselor (to name a few). All the while, longing to have the guts and follow-through to do what I really wanted: to write and become a published author. That wish has finally come true and tickled pink with glitter over this good piece of fortune.

What else? Hmm...I love indie, lo-fi, complaint rock played on vinyl, wearing black because it's slimming, the theater, well-informed optimism, happy endings (both kinds),and making those close to me laugh 'til they snort. I'm a self-admitted change junkie, loving new experiences and places, but have now happily settled in the cutest lil' town, Vienna, Virginia.

Squeee! Favorite couple is back and I’m loving it. Can’t really say which I enjoyed more This is Love or This is War. What I can say is that both are awesome ways to spend a few hours of my day.Like many I was on edge afer reading the last page of This is War. Once I was able to get my hands on This is Love, I was not disappointed. Kennedy Fox amazing ability to make you fall in love repeatedly page after page will continue to be welcomed.

We had formed a friendship that was bonded and full of trust . I want to feel that again.

Travis and Viola were once friends then became enemies, ultimately becoming more. I enjoyed how the relationship between these two developed over time. While I didn’t agree with them sneaking around I understood it. Can a secret between lover’s make their bond stronger?

This is Love continues where things left off from This is War. Travis was involved in a car accident now in the hospital with some serious injuries, creating an enormous amount of questions without the possibly of any prompt answers.The fact that Drew’s on again off again girlfriend Mia was found in his backseat without any clothes raises major one. Why?

“Come closer, “ he says “You aren’t the boss of me, Travis King. … I think we both know that’s not true. I’ve had you counting until you lost your voice.”

The steamy romance continues after Travis is released from the hospital with Viola as his recovery nurse. Things start to become complicated as trust is trying to be developed in their new relationship that is still a secret from Viola’s brother Drew. Stolen glances and secret touches only heighten the intimacy. Now don’t believe for a second that the much adored banter between these frenemies / lover goes by the wayside. Where would the fun in that be? I will admit that its not well hidden that something is different. Will these two manage to ease Drew into the idea of this blossoming relationship or will things blow up in there face?

While This is Love is allegedly the conclusion of the Checkmate series for Travis and Viola, please beware that you’re walking into a cliffhanger. This tidbit left me in a plethora of moods. Disappointment due to the abrupt ending, ecstatic how things are going, and now anxious to get my hands on Drew and Courtney’s story This is Reckless .

Blog Tour: Stolen Breath by Mia Hoddell

Stolen Breath by Mia Hoddell
Release Date: December 5th 2016
Series: Chequered Flag #3
Genre: Sports Romance/Romantic Suspense

My name is Zeke Lawson, but you probably know that already because everyone’s heard of me.

I’m the bad boy of Formula One.
The player.
The heartbreaker.

At least that’s what I allow people to believe.

The truth is too precious to be tarnished by reporters, and no matter what my fans think, they don’t deserve access to every detail of my life. It’s just a shame Nadine Hadley doesn’t see it that way.

She’s writing the feature every driver longs for on me—the one that can make your career. The only problem is she wants more than I’m willing to give her … and she’s playing dirty to get it.

Flirtatious smiles, skimpy dresses, sex: Nadine is using my reputation against me, and it’s working. No man could resist her, especially when she swears not to print my story.

So now I’m in too deep.

I want her more than anything, yet falling for a journalist may cost me the one thing I vowed to protect. Although, that seems insignificant when compared to another issue I face this racing season.

Did I forget to mention someone is trying to kill me?

*Each book in the Chequered Flag series can be read as a standalone and is complete with a HEA.*

Stan stood as I moved to sit down and held out his hand.

“I’m afraid I have to head off, but you have my number if you need to discuss anything.”

I shook his hand and, with a final pointed look at Zeke, Stan left.

“Are you going too?” I prayed he’d say yes so I could head home early. I needed to regroup after the shock he posed to my system.

“Yep, but you’re coming with me.” Zeke signalled for the bill while I remained standing, dumbfounded. He paid, and only when he started to slide out of the booth did I find my voice.

“Why would I do that?”

“Because you like your job and wouldn’t want me making a complaint to your boss.”

I planted a hand on my hip. “You wouldn’t.”

“Sure I would.”

“Really? You’re blackmailing me?”

Zeke stepped out of the booth, forcing me to wobble back on my heels. “I prefer to think of it as gentle persuasion. After all, your boss wanted personal, didn’t he? For that you’re going to need to be my shadow. If you’re not, you aren’t doing your job.”

“You’re unbelievable. Where the hell do you even need to go?”

“First we’re going to get you some new shoes, then I need to meet up with some triathlon buddies.”

I picked up my file and followed him from the restaurant, irritated. “You do triathlons?”

“See, I’m being helpful. You wouldn’t have known that if it hadn’t been for me.”

“I can think of a few things you are, and helpful isn’t one of them.”

Zeke chuckled. “One of them is sexy, isn’t it?”

I grumbled in response, choosing to change the subject so we didn’t stroll into dangerous territory. “Why are we getting me new shoes?”

“Because the ones you’re wearing are too big. You’ll slow me down or break your neck trying to keep up with me.”

“I’m fine, you worry about yourself.”

“You’re getting new shoes, princess. Deal with it.”

As if to prove his point, I tripped over the kerb as we crossed the road. This time I was sure I’d hit the concrete, but Zeke’s arms locked around me and pulled me upright. He didn’t need to say I told you so, his expression said it for him, and I resisted the urge to slap the smirk off his mouth.

“See? Why are you wearing these death traps anyway? I’ve never seen you look so … not put together.”

I huffed. “Mine broke on the way to work and these were the only ones someone could lend me.”

Zeke set me safely back on my feet and took my hand. I glanced down at it then up at him. The gesture felt unfamiliar and personal, not something I associated with Zeke. As if reading my thoughts, he explained, “In case you fall again.”

“Sure, because the only thing you’re interested in is my safety.”

About The Series

Chameleon Soul (Chequered Flag #1)

​I have it all: my dream career as a Formula 1 driver, more money than I can spend, crowds who cheer my name "Teo Coates," and an endless supply of beautiful women to warm my bed as I travel the world.

I should be happy. I should love my life.

But none of it means anything without her.

One year ago, the love of my life broke off our two-year relationship via a phone call. No explanation, no apology, and no sign it was coming. She shattered me…ripped out my heart. And the worst part is that I couldn’t stay to fight for her without losing my career.

However, now the racing season’s over, I’m back, and I intend to reclaim my girl’s heart.

There’s just one problem.

The girl I left behind no longer exists. Plagued by fear, something has broken Raine Wilkins to the point where she’s struggling to cope with each day. It’s going to take all of my skill to gather the explanation I was denied a year ago and persuade her to reveal her secrets. But if there’s one thing I can guarantee, it’s I never lose. I returned to the UK with one goal: win back the girl I love, and nothing and no one will get in my way.

Twisted Mind (Chequered Flag #2)

She’s toxic.

Everyone tells me to leave her—that she’s going to destroy me.

But things aren’t that simple.

Elora’s pregnant with my child and I endure her twisted games of manipulation and violence to protect my unborn baby. I never predicted she would do the unthinkable or that she was cruel enough to kill.

Yet she did, and now everything’s spiralling out of control.

The light-hearted jokester on the race track isn’t a part I can play anymore. The Dustin Coates everyone loved is no longer me. I’m merely a grief-stricken man who’s barely able to function.

At least until Tazia Nixon moves in next door.

She soothes my aching heart and helps me forget. With every second I’m around her, I can feel myself being revived.

However, beneath her eternal optimism is a distressing past, and the lies are starting to unravel around me. I should have protected my fragile heart from her when I had the chance because now it’s too late. Someone out there wants to destroy me, and the odds are stacking up against us. They know Tazia can break me beyond repair, and they aren’t afraid to use her.
