**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Torch by Chelle Bliss

Torch by Chelle Bliss is now live!

Trace Caldo's smart mouth always gets him in trouble. As the youngest of three brothers, he's used to scrapping to earn respect. But when he picks a fight with the wrong person, Trace ends up kidnapped, bound, and blindfolded with no hope for escape. And when a beautiful woman comes to his rescue and offers him a way to stay alive, Trace can't refuse her.

Ana Marie Kelly appears to live a charmed life. Raised in a wealthy family, she has everything a woman can want—if you don't count freedom. Ana's always been under her father's thumb, expected to do as she's told and not bring shame upon the family. But when Ana makes a mistake that could send her life in a tailspin, she can only think of one way out—the handsome man in her father's garage.

...and their only way out is to say, "I do."

This is book 11 in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series. They are all stand alones, but I have have loved each one.  You have to love this family!

This is Trace and Ana's story.

The first meeting was intense between these two.  It was literally life or death and a couple of choices to make for each of them.  

I love how these two just connected so well.  Yes, they got together to save each other, but watching their feelings develop was awesome.  

Seeing Ana get stronger and be able to stand up to her father was great.  Seeing Trace change from his playboy was awesome.  

I can't wait for more from this family.

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Compel by Rachel Van Dyken and Patti Stanger


Compel by Rachel Van Dyken & Patti Stanger is now live!


From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken and bestselling author Patti Stanger comes a gripping love story of cursed soulmates who are forced to relive tragedy over and over again until their curse is broken…

Compelled to seduce, designed to kill.

What do you do when your love destroys the only person you are designed to be with?

For centuries I've been trapped in a curse with my soulmate, only she has no idea… until history finally repeats itself.

The Matchmaker of the Fae felt wronged when we both chose our own destinies, and now, we're forced to relive our fate over and over again.

I try like hell to fix the curse, but I remember nothing after each death, only that I'm lonely and heartbroken.

The small town of Orca Cove, Oregon, doesn't help matters.

Filled with paranormal lore from all over the world… if anything, they're just as trapped as I am.

My only help is the large library on my estate.

If I can just find the notes I know I would have hidden, along with texts, maybe this time will be different.

The house groans with need for its mistress.

My heart breaks with sorrow that she doesn't recognize me until it's too late.

Her blood will always be on my hands, just like her heart is in mine.

The path to your soul mate isn't a fairytale—at least ours isn't.

My Fae queen thinks she's nothing more than a normal college student. She believes that the world is just as she sees it, without a clue that the darkness lurking in the shadows, the man she'll fall for once again, the man who will be her demise…

Is me.

5 Star

What a great read!

No I didn't read a blurb for this.  If it's a Rachel Van Dyken book, I don't need to.  I'm going to read it no matter what.

With this one, I think it made it better to not get the hints that a blurb can give.  

Everything was a complete mystery for me.  And I honestly think that going in blind, made it better.

I had no clue what was going on.  I was figuring everything out alone with Luna.  It sucked me in and held me there.

I love both Luna and Ben.  And let's not forget about Aengus.

I really hope Aengus gets a book now.

I don't want to say anything about the storyline.  I don't want to give anything away.  There are a few surprises.

I absolutely love this book!

**REVIEW TOUR** The Game by Vi Keeland

Title: The Game
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 16, 2023


It started out like any other Tuesday.

I spent twelve hours writing algorithms for one of the largest companies in the world and then came home to work on a pet project of mine—feeding facts about the men I knew into a formula to find my perfect match before my twenties came barreling to a close.

But then a man knocked on my door and handed me some papers that turned my life upside down.

Apparently, a father I never knew existed had left me something in his will. That something turned out to be part ownership in a professional football team.

Next thing I knew, I was learning a sport I knew nothing about by spending time with the team’s quarterback who was out with an injury, a man who my formula would definitely determine was all wrong for me.

Christian Knox was too handsome and confident for his own good and could have any woman he wanted. Only lately the only woman he seemed to want was me.

But there was no way I was getting involved when I was now his boss, even if he was insanely gorgeous and had the dirtiest mouth I’d ever come across.

It would be wrong, wouldn’t it?

Probably. But you know what they say about things that are wrong...sometimes they feel so right.



Tonya's Review
5 Stars

This is another fantastic stand alone from Vi.
This is a football read.
Bella was thrown into being the owner of the Bruins.  Well, after a two-year court battle. 
She had a really hard life growing up after her mom died.  But she's smart, and strong.  
The first meeting between Christian and Bella was hilarious.  I was laughing so hard.
Christian is a great guy.  He plays the long game in winning Bella over.
He puts her first.
Now there is a little, well, not really little, mystery that he does help solve.
Loved this!

4 Stars

This is the first book in an all new fae series.  It's a good start and has me hooked.
Can an evil shadow fae be redeemed.  Are all shadow fae truly evil?
You'll find the answer to that while reading Kai and Ella's story.
I really liked how this all played out.  I will admit that I was really worried towards the last 25% of the book.  I wasn't sure how this was going to go, and end.
Can't wait for more.

 Release Date: January 5

It takes a lot to shake me, and even when I’m upset, most people wouldn’t even know it.
There was just something about the last job that kept me from keeping my cool.
I know how dangerous it is, and knew even better when I had to be carried away that day, becoming literally less of the man that entered that compound.
I was ordered to rest, recover, and recuperate, all under the watchful eyes of the team’s psychologist.
She was there to get in my head, to watch for signs that I may be a danger to myself.
She became my outlet, the calm to the storm trying to take over in my head.
There would be no problem with what we were doing because the possibility of returning to work with the Cerberus MC was never going to happen, and if there was an off-chance I would, walking away would be easy, right?

5 Stars

This is the 24th book in the Cerberus MC series.  They are stand alones.
This one starts out with a "OMG! This can't be happenin" moment.
I love Aro and Slick.
But for being a shrink, Slick can really get stuck in her own head.  A Lot
If these two would have just talked, it wouldn't have been as messy of a situation.
They kept second guessing the others motives and if there were feelings there or not.
This is  a great read.
I don't want to say what happened at the beginning though, sorry.  
Meet Marie James

Let's see...where to begin...

I'm inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we're doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master's degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there's usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I'm not writing; I'm reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I'm reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it's gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
