Blog Tour: My Perfect Imperfections By Jalpa Williby

I can’t talk.
I can’t walk.
I’m alive.
But, am I living?

My name is Lily Cooper, and I have Cerebral Palsy.
I can’t seem to control my muscles. My body refuses to cooperate.

I may be confined to my wheelchair, but my mind is sharp.
And I’m stubborn as hell.

I will not allow my disability to define me.
I will pave my own path in life.
I choose strength.
I choose to live.



The rain slamming on the windshield is making it impossible to see clearly. I can tell she’s too upset to notice that she’s driving too fast, especially around the curves. I bite my bottom lip and swallow the scream from escaping when the van slips a few times. I don’t want to yell at her for fear that she’ll turn around to check on me while driving. Instead, I hold my breath and pray that she’ll slow down.

The headlights come from nowhere, blinding us. Where did they come from?

“Hold on, Lily!” she yells as she spins the steering wheel.

My heart stops beating when the van swerves out of control. I shut my eyes as the deafening sound of the screeching brakes and the crunching metal hits me like a tidal wave. The shattered glass tinkles around me, and everything moves in slow motion. As our van continues to spin, a deathly silence encases me.

I hear nothing. I feel nothing. I’m floating…and my life flashes before my eyes.

Release Blitz: 120 Days ... By M. Stratton

 ebook cover (1) 
120 days... The average number of days someone stays at Last Resort.
17 weeks. Surrounded by love, laughter and support.
4 months more time than they had before they walked through the door.
Real estate developer Ethan McGregor’s life was changed forever when his younger brother told him he was dying of cancer. Ethan was ready to do whatever it took to save Evan, but Evan had other plans.
Say goodbye…
Samantha Truman runs the privately-funded Last Resort. Watching her parent’s drive and determination to live longer than the doctors gave them was the inspiration for the resort. It is her heart and soul--she lives to make sure that each day is precious, and one more sunrise or sunset can make all the difference the guests at Last Resort need.
After finding his brother’s journal, and discovering more about Last Resort, Ethan is determined to find out if this place is one of those “too good to be true” places that turn out to be a scam. But he was not ready for Samantha Truman, he was not ready for everything to change, for his point of view in life to be so incredibly altered, for the world to turn its axis. There are, after all, some things Ethan can’t control, who to fall in love with is one of them.
How much can change in 120 days?

There are truly not enough words to describe how blown away I was by M. Stratton's stunning and breathtaking 120 Days... A book that had me messaging the author because this heartbreaking yet hopeful story was stellar. The story follows Ethan McGregor, a successful business man set on being the best at his job and closing the big deals. One day his younger brother Evan unexpectedly stops by and reveals that he has terminal cancer. Ethan is shocked and tells Evan that he'll get him the best treatment but Evan tells him it's too late. The reason he is there is to say goodbye. 

This moment it a catalyst for change in Ethan's life. The heartbreak over his brother and Evan''s journal leads Ethan to go to the place his brother spent the last days of his life, Last Resort. While this place sounds like a haven for those terminally ill, Ethan wonders if it's a scam. While he goes to investigates  he meets the resort owner, Samantha "Sam" Truman, a woman will not only challenge Ethan but also lets him see the reason why Last Resort is such a special place. 

I don't think I ever read a book that had me reaching for the Kleenex box three percent into the story like 120 Days...  by M. Stratton did. In fact I reached for it a few times. I'm sure you're thinking well, of course it's sad because it's a book about people dying. The thing is it's so much more. It's about living life to the fullest as much as possible. Embracing it, appreciate every sunrise and sunset you have the privilege of seeing. It's about not taking life for granted because you never know what's going to happen. So much happens in this story that it you will go through every emotion as you read it. 120 Days is a beautiful story about love, being the best person possible, laughing, and living. M. Stratton poured so much love into this book. You read it in every single page of the story through Ethan, Sam, and all the people at Last Resort. If there is a book you should read, 120 Days... is it.

 “I’m not sure you want me
cooking for you, or anyone else. I feel like you kidnapped me and you’re trying to give me this life that’s not really mine. I don’t feel like the type to be controlled.”

Paxton placed a finger over both my lips and shushed me with a quiet, “Shhh, hush now. I assure you with everything in me that you are the type to be controlled. That’s why you suck my dick. That’s why your legs fall apart whenever I come near you. You’re a slut. My slut. I own you.” His dry, sultry words,  touched my lips while his fingsers slid down the middle of my neck. One straight line. The dry swallow stuck in my chest when his hold over me wrapped gently around my throat. His grip tightened and his lips met mine. “Shhh, don’t talk, baby girl. Turn around and go take a shower like you were told”
My eyes cowardly dropped to the floor and I submitted.

My name is Jettie Woodruff. I am from Ohio. I don't know what genre I write in. People tell me I have my own genre. I write whatever I feel, because that's what makes me happy. I don't want to be in that box where I can only write one genre. I tend to like my bad boy's, taboo; touchy subjects that make you want to throw your kindle. Usually at said hot alpha male. Sometimes the female lead as well. My motto is life is short. Very short. If it doesn't make you happy anymore then why do it? Move on. Some of my favorite things, besides writing are friends, family, and the beach. Music, although my interest has changed after forty, I like the new stuff. Happy Reading.

Release Blitz: Fighting His Fire by Ann Lister

#‎DanteandAshton ‪#‎FightingHisFire #MoreRockGods #No1GayEroticaOnAmazon

Can Ashton Resist Dante's Inferno?


Locked-down at a Los Angeles intervention facility, everyone around Dante Dupont and his Black Ice band mate, Ashton Lane, thought this would fix the issues between them. Dante and Ashton knew differently. What made this a hundred times worse was the fact they were stuck in this room together. They hadn't shared space like this since the one afternoon they both wanted to forget. And, revisiting that nightmare was not an option . . . with or without the help of a therapist.

Two musicians. Same band. Afraid to admit their true feelings, being in close quarters again has them both at their breaking point. They say if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, but neither of them can find a reason to leave, and fighting the fire is becoming more and more difficult to do.

Dante's baggage isn't pretty and his scars run deep, but Ashton might be the one to finally see beyond his past and help him find a way out from the smoke screen he's spent his life hiding behind. In order to get there, though, they'll both have to walk through the flames.

You can add it to your TBR on Goodreads here:

Dante's had one hand on Ashton's throat and the other fisting his hair and Ashton did nothing to fight the hold. Instead, he stood there gulping air into his lungs while doing his best to slow his

breathing and the racing of his heart. The scorching glare Dante had aimed at him was a contradiction to the erection Ashton could feel pressing into his hip.

“It's always going to be like this for us, isn't it?” Ashton questioned with a hint of sadness in his voice.

“What'd you mean?” Dante's grip on Ashton's throat loosened.

“Contentious. Volatile. Physical. Pick one. They all apply,” Ashton answered.

“I think it's called passion,” Dante's grin was slow to take shape on his face, but when it did it made his eyes sparkle with mischief.

“Does passion leave bruises?” Ashton tipped his head at Dante.

“Are you going to deny this doesn't get you cranked up?” Dante's hand left Ashton's hair and slid over his naked chest and stomach, then lower to circle Ashton's aching cock. Ashton hissed when Dante's grip tightened. “You're rock hard for me.”

“We might end up killing each other in the process of what ever the hell this is,” Ashton's voice was a strained whisper.

“What do you want it to be?” Dante prodded.

“I'm not sure,” Ashton returned. “But I do like this. A lot.”

“I know you do and I'm a big fan of this, too.”

Once we were alone on our way to school, she glanced down at our joined hands and then back up at me. Her wide smile and bright eyes told me she was feeling the same warm feelings I was.
“Hey, boyfriend,” she said as she gave my hand a squeeze.
The shit-eating grin lifted my cheeks again. “Hi yourself, girlfriend.”
“We probably shouldn’t play hooky today, should we?” Without releasing my hand, she sped up a little before turning to walk backwards so that she could meet my eyes.
I thought about the day we could have if we did and ached to say yes. “We probably shouldn’t. It’s probably a better idea to prove we’re going to be responsible even if we’re a couple.”
“Hmm, couple. I like the sound of it.” She turned around again, resting her head against my arm as we walked.
I dropped her hand and wrapped my arm around her shoulders.
“Maybe we can still be responsible if we’re a little late though?” she asked.
“Maybe. Why? What do you have in mind?”
She dragged me in the direction of the park where we’d played cards the day before—the park which had been “ours” for as long as I could remember and where everything had changed.
“Well, our first date was cut a little short, don’t you think?”
The ghost of her lips tracing over mine filled my mind, together with the memory of her tongue tangling with my own.
“Definitely,” I said, unable to keep the lust and desire from my voice.
We walked in silence until we arrived at our park. Without any verbal agreement, we made our way toward the table we’d claimed as our spot years earlier.
Alyssa sat on the bench and I took my usual place perched behind her on the table. I placed my legs on either side of her body and leaned my chin on the top of her head. It was a position we’d sat in hundreds of times before as we chatted about anything and everything. Only, this time it was different. Neither of us spoke, which had never really happened before. The silence around us was almost maddening; the only sound, our matching breaths.
“So—” we both said at the same time, before stopping at the same time.
“You go—” Again our voices were almost perfectly in sync.
I chuckled as she turned around and knelt on the bench to look at me. I helped her up onto the table beside me and just looked at her for a moment. Her lips called to me, and I wanted to kiss her, longed to with every part of me, but I didn’t know if I should. I didn’t want kissing to be the only thing we had. There was so much more that I liked about her and none of those things had changed. Yet it was still different. Everything was different.
“Don’t hate me for asking, but is this weird as hell for you too?” she asked.
My relief that I wasn’t the only one who was feeling the new, odd atmosphere surrounding us escaped in a quiet laugh. “So weird.”
“It shouldn’t be though, should it?”
“No. I mean, we’re still us, right?”
She practically leapt in place. “Right!”
“We’re still friends,” I added. “We always will be.”
“Exactly. We’re just friends that kiss now.”
As she said the words, my gaze was drawn to her bright pink lip gloss. I licked my lips. “Friends that kiss a lot?”
“If you’re lucky.”
I trailed my hands into her hair, drawing her face slowly closer to mine. “Am I?”
“I don’t know,” she whispered. Her lips were so close to mine that I could feel her breath on my skin. “I’m starting to think that maybe I’m the lucky one.”

Rating: 4-stars



Michelle Irwin has been many things in her life: a hobbit taking a precious item to a fiery mountain; a young child stepping through the back of a wardrobe into another land; the last human stranded not-quite-alone in space three million years in the future; a young girl willing to fight for the love of a vampire; and a time-travelling madman in a box. She achieved all of these feats and many more through her voracious reading habit. Eventually, so much reading had to have an effect and the cast of characters inside her mind took over and spilled out onto the page.

Michelle lives in sunny Queensland in the land down under with her surprisingly patient husband and ever-intriguing daughter, carving out precious moments of writing and reading time around her accounts-based day job. A lover of love and overcoming the odds, she primarily writes paranormal and fantasy romance.

Blog Tour & Review: EX-CON Selected Sinners MC By Scott Hildreth

Title: EX-CON
Author: Scott Hildreth
Release Date: August 17th, 2015
Series: Selected Sinners MC, Book 5
Cover Model: Darren Birks


People break promises. It happens every day.

Jack Shephard is tall, muscular, covered in tattoos, and rides in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club. Most people wouldn’t believe a word he said based on his appearance alone.

But they don’t know Jack like I know Jack, and Jack made me a promise.

There’s one small problem. Jack’s been arrested on a murder charge he didn’t commit, and he’s facing life in prison.

But he promised me he’d always come home.

And Jack doesn’t break promises.

EX-CON is a stand-alone, no cheating, no sex outside the relationship, HEA story of love, loss, second chances, and living life outside of the boundaries most citizens live in. It is Book V in the Selected Sinners series of MC Erotic Romance novels, and is able to be enjoyed fully as a stand-alone. To experience the series in full, Making the Cut, Taking the Heat, Otis, HUNG, and EX-CON may, however, all be read (in that order).

When you think a MC romance story, you automatically think of it as being raw, gritty, living on the edge of danger as an outlaw, women and sex. What you don't think about is one of the best not only romance but love stories you'll read this year. Scott Hildreth's EX-CON delivers an exceptional story that breaks the mold, and will stay with you for a long time. EX-CON is the story of Jackson "Big Jack" Shepard. A man who lives by his own set of rules and his word is worth more than gold. He is one of the most respectful, sincere and genuine characters you'll read. The more you read about Jack, the more you see he has the qualities that essentially makes him this ideal man. He just happens to be in an MC outlaw covered in tattoos.

As the story opens up, it isn't Jackson who we meet first, it's actually Emily Stewart, who I have to say that I absolutely loved as a character. She's a 21 year old out for a good time, but when a guy at the bar she's at won't take the hint and leave her alone, Jackson steps in. While you think this may be the typical rescuing the damsel in distress story, it is not. Jackson is being the standup man you'll continue to see in the story. Emily, knows how to take care of herself and isn't afraid to speak up. She's a strong woman. What you'll see is that Jackson gives Emily a feeling she never truly felt till she was in his presence.

There is definitely a magnetic pull that Emily and Jackson have. The respect Jackson shows Emily is those opening scenes is not something she sees from men and makes her intrigued by him. This is the thing you find out about Jackson throughout the story, he's not typical in how he approaches life. When she finds out he's a dominant she wants to know more and see if she has what it takes to be with Jackson. The relationship is truly one of my favorites of the year. The anticipation in the way it develops has you on the edge of your seat like Emily and has you falling in love too. On top of that it is incredibly sexy. If there were ever two characters who fit perfectly like two puzzle pieces, it is Jackson and Emily.

EX-CON is a book that is different from anything out there in the genre. It has it's fair share of twists and turns. While you may know the outcome of some parts from reading previous books in the series, Jackson's story has so much to it, it shouldn't be missed. The stoic character you get a few glimpses of in the other books, shines brightly on his own. Believe me, it's some story. What makes it an absolute standout has to do with the wonderfully written characters Jackson and Emily. You will feel everything these characters do. It is also the love, devotion, heartbreak, hope, second chances, and loyalty that Scott Hildreth perfectly writes about in EX-CON. It's all that combined that has no doubt made this the best book of the series but also on my list for one of the Best Books of 2015.

Don't miss out on this fantastic story that will leave wanting just one more page, because you won't be able to get enough of Jackson and Emily.

A Personal Note from Scott About Himself and His Personal Journey with this Book

I began riding with my first MC after 20 years of riding alone. Although I didn’t know it at the time, immediately following my introduction to the club, I became the target of an ATF investigation.

The investigation ended when a helicopter, over 30 ATF agents, US Marshalls, and countless other SWAT Team members converged on me one day.

I was indicted on more than two dozen criminal counts, and given the option to plead guilty to one and receive a light sentence (probation). If I fought them, they explained, I would face life in prison.

Well, I’ve never been one to give up easy, so I chose to fight.

And I fought all the way to the US Supreme Court.

The fact I lost my case didn’t really matter to me. Fighting was more important. Standing up when most citizens would sit down had always been my nature.

My time in prison wasn’t easy, but I made it the best I was able. The days drug on forever, at least initially. In time, my mind made sense of it all, and digested it as being a new way of life; my only choice, so to speak.

In EX-CON, Jack’s thoughts, feelings, decisions, and actions were mine. What he felt, thought, and went through in the book is accurate down to the smallest of details.

My experiences in life cause my books to have more ‘feel’ than a conventionally written novel. EX-CON is no exception. It’s gritty, real, and raw as are most of my novels. But one thing it has that no other Scott Hildreth novel shares.

300 pages of compassion.

Enjoy knowing a little more about me. And enjoy EX-CON, which is a reflection of part of my life.
