Release Day: Supernatural Chronicles: The Vampires by Brenda Pandos

Amazon: amzn.to/1MOIkTe

Google: bit.ly/1kgsB2Z

After narrowly escaping annihilation, eighteen-year-old Julia Parker and her vampire friends are on the hunt for their next big thrill. 

When a blood-penned riddle triggers Julia's thirst, the vamps fear they're being lured into a trap. And when the note's 'ink' drives Julia into a rage/frenzy, her friends are left with no choice but to destroy it. 

Though Julia returns to her normal self, the threat isn’t over. The letter warns that a sacrifice is required in order for them to keep their immortality. As each minute passes, the group starts becoming weaker. Unsure how to satisfy the letter’s author, they go to New Orleans anyway, but this is no ordinary trip. Evil lurks in the shadows, feeding off Julia's bloodlust and preparing to stake her and her friends at the first opportunity. And with the moon coming into position, they’re running out of time. If outside forces don't bring the coven down, Julia herself may be their undoing. Because fulfilling the riddle will cost Julia one of two things: a treasure she holds dear or her own immortal life. 

Failure is not an option. 


Beneath the brow of Bourbon and French architecture, the iris of New Orleans swirls with flecks of worlds and beings unknown to mankind. Come with us as we chronicle their journey—each supernatural race must hunt for an offering in hopes of saving their own. Skinwalkers, Wolves, Vampires, Dragons, Succubi, Witches, Necromancers, Cupids, and Asgardians are all in danger of losing control as an uprising darkness threatens to rip the veil that protects them all from the great beyond.

Ten original novellas, following each supernatural race as they fight an elusive enemy, are written by New Adult authors Lila Felix, Kristie Cook, Brenda Pandos, Delphina Henley, Julia Crane, Jamie Magee, Morgan Wylie, Kallie Ross, S.T. Bende, and Rebecca Ethington. Come join them for the hunt and discover hidden treasures inside.

 Mommy warrior, comma-kazi, wife, computer whisperer, Pinterest addict, chocolate enthusiast, vampire and zombie slayer, merman magnet, and lover of all things pure and right. Well... maybe after a cup of coffee or two.

Author Brenda Pandos lives in California and is surrounded by the loves of her life—her husband, her incredible boys, a grumpy cat, eight chickens and her characters. Before becoming a full-time author, she worked as an IT administrator. After her son’s ASD diagnosis, everything changed. Being pregnant and embarking on a 35 hour a week in-home therapy schedule was grueling to say the least. She craved a meaningful escape.

Never having aspired to write before, she wrote her own vampire tale for kicks. Four months later, The Emerald Talisman was born. Unsure who'd want to buy her novel, she entered her fledgling book in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and placed as a Quarter-finalist. That gave her the courage to go Indie and from there, she traversed into a life she’d never imagined and loves to this day. And since a small group of fans grew into a larger group of fans, all cheering her onto books two, three, four, five... and so on, she hasn't looked back.

Release Day: Something Precious by M. Clarke

Download Soundtrack 

As Jax and Rachel start their lives together, finally engaged and living in Los Angeles, all seems right with the world until Chloe wants to enter their lives again. She wants to be closer to her son, Jace, and in order to keep the peace, Jax agrees. Unfortunately, trouble seems to be swirling in the air when Rachel’s high school crush enters their lives; meanwhile Chloe proclaims to be pregnant. 

Rachel is left questioning whether Jax is the one she wants to live happily ever after with, while they are left pondering who could be the father of Chloe’s baby. Could their relationship be strong enough to surpass these obstacles or will this mean the end of Jax and Rachel's love.

International Bestselling Author Mary Ting/M. Clarke resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children's chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

Review: Beautiful Redemption (Maddox Brothers #2) by Jamie McGuire

The Maddox Brothers
book 2
Jamie McGuire

Adult / Romance 

If A Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever. But what if he didn't love you, first? 

No-nonsense Liis Lindy is an agent of the FBI. Deciding she is married only to her job, she breaks off her engagement and transfers from Chicago to the field office in San Diego. She loves her desk. She is committed to her laptop. She dreams of promotions and shaking hands with the director after cracking an impossible case.

Special Agent in Charge Thomas Maddox is arrogant, unforgiving, and ruthless. He is tasked with putting away some of the world’s toughest criminals, and he is one of the best the Bureau has to offer. Though, as many lives as he’s saved, there is one that is beyond his reach. Younger brother Travis is faced with prison time for his involvement in a basement fire that killed dozens of college students, and the media want a conviction. Travis’s only savior is his unusual tie to the mob. In a deal that will spare his brother, Thomas has agreed to recruit Travis into the FBI.

Liis is stubborn, defiant, and yet somehow softens Thomas’s rough edges, making her the perfect agent to accompany him to the ceremony. Posing as a couple, they must travel to Travis & Abby’s beach vow renewal and give him the news, but when the pretending ends, she finds herself wondering if they were pretending at all.

In the second installment of the Maddox Brothers books, experience firsthand the mysterious world of the elusive Thomas Maddox, and how good love can be when you’re not the first, but the last.



I'm loving this series so far! The Maddox brothers are addicting.

This book follows the story of Thomas (Tommy, TJ) Maddox. He is the oldest of the brothers and took on most of the responsibilities after their mom passed away. He helped raise his younger brothers while his dad was dealing with his wife's death.

You could read this book as a stand alone, but if your at all interested in reading the series I'd definitely recommend reading them in order. This is listed as book 2 in the series, but to get the full story you need to read Beautiful Disaster, Walking Disaster, Beautiful Oblivion, and then Beautiful Redemption. (technically making this the 4th book)

After reading Travis and Trenton's stories I was expecting Thomas to be... well, not what he is! He surprised me, in a good way. With this book we get more into the backstory of the boys and a few more things make sense. Also, this book is a little more adult than the previous books.

I really liked Liis, she is a strong female character that didn't put up with anything from anyone. She wasn't emotional and annoying with the love story like a lot of female characters tend to be. It was refreshing. One of the previous books kind of gave away the conclusion to this one so there wasn't as much suspense as there could of been, but towards the end a twist is thrown at you so fast it'll make your head spin!

I can't wait to read the next book!

Review: Beautiful Oblivion (The Maddox Brothers #1) Jamie McGuire

Beautiful OBLIVION
The Maddox Brothers 
book 1
Jamie McGuire

New Adult / Romance 

Fiercely independent Camille "Cami" Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college.

 Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.
Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.

Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.

As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.


As always, I enjoyed this book by Jamie McGuire!

I've grown to love the Maddox boys in the couple of books I've read so far and can't wait to continue on with the next one.

Beautiful Oblivion is Trenton's story. It's packed full of sarcasm, playing hard to get, and some twists and turns. I was blown away with the ending, it was driving me mad trying to figure out what secret Cami was keeping, but I NEVER would have guessed that! Wow, just wow. I have no words for the shock I felt! Loved it.

I loved all the time at the tattoo shop, it has me craving some new ink myself. ;)

I like that the books are all the same basic timeline and we get to see what was going on behind the scenes with the other characters. It answered a few questions I had from Travis' story.

I'm in the process of downloading the next book, so I'm off to continue reading.

****** NOTE ******
While this is listed as book 1 in the series, I would HIGHLY recommend reading the Beautiful Series first! 
Beautiful Disaster - Travis & Abby
Walking Disaster - same story from Travis' pov

New Release: No Way Out Series: SIN (book 1) by Shari J. Ryan

sin bk 1 banner.jpg


No Way Out Serial Series; Book 1

86 pages
Published by: Booktrope Editions
Published: October 15, 2015

No Way Out: SIN (BOOK ONE)

I’m called Sin. People think there’s a reason for my name, and they might be right.

Most of us think we live in a world that runs on truth, politics, and laws. We don’t. We live in a world full of lies and deceit. That’s why some of us are here in the town of Chipley. Two hundred prisoners and Reese. Sweet, innocent Reese, who was taken and held captive in a shed for three years by my father.

Releasing her is dangerous, but I have to.

She’ll think she’s being saved. She’ll think she’s getting a second chance. She’ll think she’s finding a speck of light in the darkness her world has become.

But the light reveals what the darkness has concealed. And it isn't pretty.

In Shari J. Ryan’s Psychological Thriller, you’ll be left questioning the definition of truth.

**This is a serial novel, which means it is part one of many. THIS IS NOT A STAND- ALONE novel. There will be a cliffhanger. But never fear book 2 will be out soon.**

A loud flutter sounds from the sky, and I look to see if there is a plane up above, wondering where it's coming from and where it's going. The right direction might point us toward a nearby city. Regardless, there's an aircraft, which means Sin and I aren't completely lost in the middle of nowhere. Not as it seems anyway.  A helicopter finally appears on the horizon behind us, and heads in the direction we're walking. The sound of the propellers biting at the wind becomes painfully loud as it flies over our head, and the rush of air nearly knocks me over. I can't help but wonder why it's flying so low over this town.
"Bad timing," Sin says. He stops suddenly and drags me off the path and behind one of the sheds where no one can see us. Over here, I see trees in the distance. They're the first trees I've seen—maybe that means there's a road on the other side of them.
"Should we go that way?" I ask, pointing toward the green blur of leaves.
"No. That's not the right way," he says. Sin squats down, pulling me down with him until I'm resting on my knees. "Listen. In the next few minutes, you might see things that scare you, and when you see what I'm talking about, I'm going to need you to remain calm."
"I am calm." Not necessarily inside, but I'm good at pretending.
"I know you are easily excitable, and I can understand why, but right now, it's important that we stay calm." He places his hands on my shoulders and looks me in the eyes. "Do you understand?"
My skin tingles beneath his touch, even separated by the thin material of my shirt. "Please tell me what's going on."
He nods his head and looks away from me. "We left the safe area. The shed and the basement—those are safe zones, meant for the caretakers. Chipley is an isolated town, imprisoning many people from the outside. Including us."
"Isolated?" Imprisoning… Care takers?
"There's no way out. Not that I have found yet. We're surrounded by an electrified wall." Every piece of hope I had developed over the past twenty-four hours has shattered into a pile of dread. "I don't know if we'll make it out, but we're damn well going to try. And this might be the only way."
"What is the reason we are confined in this town?" I ask, unsure if I want to know the truth.
"You and I are the only two people who don't have a reason to be here. So, I can't answer that." There's no reason for why I was taken. There's no reason for why I'm confined to some compound of a town.
"And there's no reason for why you are suddenly so kind to me… I don't understand any of this, Sin. And I most definitely don't understand you." My breaths shudder as I try to compose my anger, sadness, and fear. "You've been so mean to me, but then there are moments like now, where you're nice. Why?"
"I'm angry," he says through a growl. "Your existence here has made this more complicated than it once was for me. I need to protect you. And for that, part of me feels resentment. However, the other part of me feels deeply connected to you, and for that reason…I can't fully resent you."
"I didn't ask for this," I tell him. "And you don't need to make me your problem."
"It's too late," he says as his hand cups around my cheek. Gentler than I thought capable, he presses his lips against my forehead and pulls me in against his chest. Again, I hear his heart beating—the comforting sound of not being alone. Warmth covers my body from the roots of my hair to the tips of my toes. I hate how he makes me feel so many different things at the same time. "Reese, I will do what I can to keep you safe."
"Safe from what?"
Before he has a chance to either ignore my question or answer me, I hear his name called again. "Sin," the voice shouts in a whisper. I glance over Sin's shoulder, seeing that man with the blanket again. JJ. He's limping toward us with a paper bag. Food? I pull out of sin's arms and take a few steps toward the man. I'm starving.
"Is that food?" I ask.
"Reese, no!" Sin shouts.
