Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway. CHASING RIVER by KA Tucker

We are absolutely thrilled to bring you the Review Tour for K.A. Tucker's CHASING RAIN! CHASING RIVER is a Suspenseful Romance novel, and the third novel in K.A. Tucker’s Burying Water Series, published by Atria books, an Imprint of Simon & Schuster. CHASING RIVER is set to be released July 7, 2015! If you haven't already, be sure to grab BURYING WATER and BECOMING RAIN, the first two books in this thrilling series!!   

Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn't risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.

Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.

Let me start by saying that KA's Burying Water series is one of my favorite series ever. Each one of them have been a favorite and Chasing River was no different. KA outdid herself with this book!

Chasing River really has it all, and it was everything I expected and then some.
If you have read Burying Water you may remember Jesse's sister Amber. She has been planning for a trip around the world for quite some time now. In Chasing River we follow Amber in her adventure and what an adventure it was!
I absolutely loved that we get a little bit of a background story on the IRA and the tough political times in Ireland from the past and present.

Ireland was one of Amber's destinations and she had it all planned out, the places she would visit and the tours she would take, she had a whole Travel Bucket List full of options. That is until she finds herself walking towards the wrong place at the wrong time. This is where she encounters River, who literally saves her life, or at least saves her from being very badly hurt. The strange thing was that after saving her life he disappeared, and though Amber was forever grateful to this stranger, she couldn't deny it was suspicious he was there to help and even more suspicious that he wouldn't stick around.

River has a complicated story. His family had once fought with the IRA and believed in their cause. Something River and both his brothers, Rowen and Aengus, grew up surrounded by, and while River no longer got himself involved with any of that business his brother Aengus still did. 

Amber had always walked on the right side of the law and being the Sheriff's daughter always made her a stickler as far as rules go. Despite the suspicion Irish police planted in her regarding the mysterious stranger who saved her life, she can't stop thinking about him. Unexpectedly Amber will stumble upon the opportunity to track River down, and she takes it, besides wanting to see him again she wanted to thank him for saving her life. 

River and Amber never expected to have the connection they had from the beginning, even that first day when River pushes Amber out of danger's way. They both know that her time in Ireland is limited, and Amber has never been the type of girl to have a one night stand with a bartender, even if this bartender is who saved her life. At the same time she wants to be that girl who lives in the moment and doesn't worry about the rules. Amber wants more than anything to be able to follow her heart. 

Things won't be easy though. It's not just about her having a life in Oregon she needs to get back to and River having a life he can't abandon in Ireland. There are secrets Amber will discover about River and his family and what it means for any kind of future for them.
She's afraid of making the wrong decision, she is afraid of getting hurt, she afraid for River and afraid for herself. She will have to decide what matters most, obeying the law or protecting the man she has fallen for.

I couldn't get enough of this story. What I loved the most was that I felt a connection with each one the characters. KA is great at getting the reader to identify with her characters, I even felt bad for Aengus at one point and believe me that's not an easy task. I mentioned earlier that this story has it all, and it really does. Adventure, romance, unexpected turns and even humor. We get to see a lot of Ivy in Chasing River (you may remember her from Burying Water, she was the tattoo artist friends with Jesse) and I really can't wait to get to know her even better in the next book!
Beautifully written and most definitely my favorite of KA's books, nothing is more captivating for me than seeing character development and in Chasing River we get just that with Amber. We see her grow in more ways than one, we see her find a balance between her old and new self. 

If Chasing River is not in your TBR you need to fix that right this second, I 150% recommend it. You may want to add Burying Water and Becoming Rain as well, as they are both absolutely fantastic!

Chapter 1 Part #2 from BLACK DAWN

She pushed out a breath, not wanting to deal with reality. Matt thought she had a security clearance, that she worked a freelance techy “geek” job—God forbid the guy rub two brain cells together—and she had to travel to clients. It was one of the few things he let her do without him anymore, but that was primarily because they needed the steady income from her work. 
She’d lied to him from the get-go about exactly what she did to earn a living. Maybe that made her a bad person. Maybe she’d known without realizing it that she was headed down a road that looked perfect but was rocky and dangerous. When he’d dangled a permanent, protective connection in front of her, she jumped at it. Too hard. 
Well, this was her work, and the deep, dark hacker underground wasn’t a security-clearance type of job. Without even asking, she knew there was no way Matt would allow her in this world. Her world. Where she was literally the best of the best. 
But seriously, when did she have to ask to have a job? To do what she’d done for years? Simple answer—the second he’d slipped a rock on her ring finger. 
Phiber tried again with his dance moves and a smile that highlighted a scar above his lip. “If not a drink, then just want to party?” 
She held up her left hand and wiggled her fingers to highlight the engagement ring. “Thanks, but I’m good, Phiber.” The guy smiled, probably because she knew his handle. 
“Tonight’s really a rager.”
Apparently her subtle “no thanks” hadn’t indicated that she wasn’t in the mood for conversation. Though truth was, she could use a chat. Not that she was lonely. She had friends. Maybe. Just online now, it seemed. She was falling further away from the girls she’d once been close to. All except for her foster sister, but even Meredith hadn’t seen Lexi in weeks. 

“Yeah.” She bit her lip and nodded at Phiber instead of focusing on her troubles. “It’s crazy tonight.” 
“You hear SilverChaos did all this?” Phiber slugged back his drink. “Mad props to that guy.” 
She stepped back. “Yeah.” 
“Think he’s here?” He laughed. “Could be me. Could be you.” 
“Except you’re Phiber.”
He shrugged. “But who are you?”
She needed an exit now. There was no way the guy would pin the elite handle on her, but why risk it? She clapped her hand on his back, patting him like a dude. “See ya, buddy.” 
Lexi tugged on her leather string bracelet, fidgeting, and moved away. She felt Phiber’s eyes still on her, and even though he couldn’t know she was Silver, she had the heebie-jeebies. She melted through the crowd, chatting with others who didn’t creep her out. One weird guy wouldn’t ruin her fun as she hid from home, avoiding her jerk of a fiancĂ©. Though he was so much more than that lately. Her fingers brushed her tender eye. 
Stop thinking about him. Shaking her head clear, she tried to focus on the music, dancing to the beat from the sidelines of the makeshift floor, but her heart wasn’t in it. Why did she lie to herself? It wasn’t Matt’s attitude anymore, nor was his drinking just a random occurrence since losing another job. Matt had crossed the line. More than once. A push. A slap. All came with an apology and excuse. He shouldn’t have been drinking. He’d never do it again. She made it happen, and God, she knew better. 
But it happened more and more often. Not every day. Not even every week. That would be, like, abuse. This was more like... abuse. Shit. She couldn’t even admit it out loud, couldn’t even tell Meredith. Nope, like a little wimp—like nothing who she was—Lexi could only hmm and hum when anyone asked questions. All she did was bury her face in her computer. Well, that wasn’t entirely true—she’d also rescued Bacon Byte, her cute, slightly morbidly obese pug. But even Bacon’s sweet sneezes and snores didn’t turn Matt into a civilized human being. 
Who threatened to hurt a dog? Whether it was off-handed jokes about letting the poor thing gorge herself or jumping at Bacon to scare her, Matt made Lexi’s heart race. Awful people were mean to puppies. Now when she went out of town for her “web security” meetings, she asked Meredith to puppy-sit. So much for Operation Melt-Matt’s-Blackened-Heart. 
How did she have a man’s ring on her finger when she didn’t trust him alone with her dog? 
“Easy,” she murmured to herself. 

She was the queen of abandonment issues. Bouncing from one foster home to the next had really done her in, which was why she showed up to these absurd competitions and kept next to no winnings, donating as much as she could afford. If she could make one little girl’s world happy with stupid money, then yeah, she didn’t need to bring home major dough. But all of that charity still didn’t make her comfortable with the idea of walking away from the only man who claimed he’d never leave her or let her go. Ever

Sexy young couple kissing and playing in bed.
 Exclusive Excerpt: Still avoiding my gaze, he does a cursory look about the room to see if we’ve missed anything. Apparently he’s satisfied that we’ve cleaned up all traces of our little rendezvous because he walks to the door and grasps the handle; once its open, he motions for me to exit first. At the opening, I pause in front of him and wait until he finally lifts his eyes to mine. I scrutinize his blue depths and search for any difference after what we shared. No. He has shut me out once again. “No regrets.” I leave him with the same words as always. And, like always, he says nothing in return. I step out into the hall and come to a sudden stop. Brannon is just leaving out of his room at the end of the hall. He smiles and opens his mouth to speak, but then his eyes dart past me and his lips come together in a grim line. I can only imagine what he is seeing. Rumpled clothes, messy hair, swollen lips, and glowing skin. This is the second time he has run into us in this state, but this time, there is no question what just happened. It’s pretty damn clear. Brannon starts toward us but his eyes are on Ean. I decide to let him deal with it and walk away, albeit slowly, so that I can eavesdrop a little. “Dude,” Brannon’s voice is low and accusatory, “Please tell me that you did not just fuck Aden’s sister with him in the next room.” “Watch how you fucking talk about her, Brannon.” Ean growls. Silence. “Relax.” Ean’s voice is laid back now, almost nonchalant. “We were just blowing off some steam. Don’t make more of it than it is.” His words cause tears to prick behind my eyes. One of the worst things about complete honesty is that you can’t pretend that someone is lying to save yourself from pain. Ean truly believes that’s what we are. And, somehow, I’ve let him continue to believe that I’m ok with it. Yep, I’m as much to blame for this as he is. I blink away the moisture. I don’t deserve to wallow in self-pity, especially since I know, the next time he comes to me, I won’t turn him away.

I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance. I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books. I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter, and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Blog Tour - Excerpt: WICKED WHITE by Michelle A. Valentine


Are you ready to meet Ace White? You can get your hands on WICKED WHITE by Michelle A. Valentine now!



After his mother dies, rock star Ace White—lead singer of the red-hot band Wicked White—is done with the celebrity game. The phony people, the meaningless one-night stands: he doesn’t want any of it anymore. Quitting in the middle of a sold-out tour, Ace sets out to find some place—any place—where he can be alone.
Aspiring singer Iris Easton’s life has never been easy. First, her mother walked out on her when she was a kid. Now she’s buried in debt, weeks after losing her beloved grandmother. When a mysterious and sexy new guy moves in next door, Iris can’t help but be drawn to his soulful gaze. She can tell there’s something from his past haunting him—something he’s not telling her.
Just as Ace starts falling for Iris, the media go on a worldwide hunt to find the missing rocker. Will true love conquer all, or will the truth be the very thing that tears the couple apart?

Unable to wait any longer, I grab the bottom of his shirt and whip it over his head in one swift motion. My eyes follow the long, lean muscles in his chest down to the incredible set of drool-worthy abs on display in front of me. Most rock stars I’ve ever seen pictures of are covered in tattoos, but surprisingly, Ace only has one. It’s a line of script above his heart. 
I run my fingers over the words and read them aloud. “‘To thine own self be true’?” 
He smiles. “It’s a quote from my favorite Shakespeare play, Hamlet. It’s a reminder to me to always put myself first.” 
I smile seductively. “How’d you become so knowledgeable about something so romantic?” 
“Let’s just say I’m more than a pretty face.”

Blog Tour: Excerpt - ON MY KNEES by J. Kenner


Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels:Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.
I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge. 
Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone. 
Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release. 
I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back. 

On My Knees is intended for mature audiences.
Read the first chapter of ON MY KNEES here!

“Let me see,” I say as my fingers reach for the buttons on his shirt. I undress him slowly, then carefully peel the white cotton away from his tanned body. His chest is lean and muscled, with broad shoulders and just enough chest hair to give a woman something to tease with her fingers. He is perfection, but right now, his skin is marred by bruises rising in various shades of purple and yellow. 
My stomach twists, but I don’t look away. Instead, I hold tight to his hand and pull him further into the apartment. “Come on,” I say. “We’re going to fix you up.” 
“Sylvia, wait. I shouldn’t have—” 
I press a finger gently to his lips. “No. Please. We can talk later. Right now I just—” I draw a breath. “Right now I just need to take care of you.”

Guest Post: CHASING THE WIND by Nazarea Andrews + Giveaway

Today we have a guest post from Nazarea Andrews, author of CHASING THE WIND. We have a few teasers from the book and a contest! So be sure to check out the whole post! 





Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00033]
Kaida grew up in two worlds--a child in the Manor raised by Sabah before she was granted Citzenship. But the only place she has ever felt like she's belonged is with Cedric and Guin, the boys she grew up with. When Cedric's involvement in a rebel faction goes wrong, the Commission exiles her and holds Guin hostage. Now, she's on her own for the first time, and searching for the sister who left her behind and a princess who was stolen from the City--and then she stumbles across a face from the past. Hawke has been an outcast since his Tribe died. When he finds Sabah's sister on the road, he agrees to help her. But as they search the wilds and grow closer, his disdain for her is slowly replaced by a deep attraction for the girl who faces every challenge so bravely. And as the City's deadline dwindles, and the boy she loves hangs in the balance, Hawke is left to wonder if he is protecting her, or if he the biggest threat she will face.


Amazon | Barnes & Noble


What will Sabah do, when she realizes what I’ve brought her? For the first time, I let myself worry. She could be furious. There’s no real way of knowing, with Sabah. But then, she could be thrilled. It’s the first time she’s had contact with any of her people from before she disappeared into the Wilds. A familiar lance of regret goes through me. Sabah and I would never have made a good pairing. I know it, and try to console myself with that knowledge as I cut a rabbit free of my snare. But it’s hard to accept that when she’s so damn gorgeous and full of fire. She would make a good Tribeswoman. If she could swallow the Claiming. I wonder if Kaida can.

A sexy, suspenseful new romance novel from Lauren Blakely, author of the New York Times Bestselling Seductive Nights series…. 

She was the one who got away… 

Ten years ago, Brent Nichols let the love of his life slip through his fingers. It’s his greatest regret, especially since she’s all but disappeared. But when the gorgeous and captivating woman walks into his life unexpectedly, he’s determined to win her back. Whatever it takes, he won’t make the same mistake twice. 

Easier said than done…

Shannon Paige has hardened her heart to the man she was once engaged to be married to. After the way he left, and after the hell she’s been through with her checkered family, there’s no way she’s letting him into her life again. The problem is, the second she sees him, he’s more handsome and charming than before. And she’s torn between wanting to fight with him and wanting to sleep with him - maybe both. Soon they fall into each other’s arms, consumed with a desire that burns through the years. 

But if these two fiery lovers are going to have a real second chance at this kind of intense, passionate, bone-deep love, he’ll have to give her his whole heart, and she’ll have to give up all the secrets from her messy past. 

And that messy past is about to spill over into her carefully constructed present…

She turned to look at him, and neither one of them said a word. Her green eyes were dark and intense. Her lips were so close. The inches between them were swallowed whole by the connection that crackled between them. She seemed to sway closer, and he moved in, seizing the moment.
He lifted his hand to her hair, still sleek in its twist, different from the shade she’d had when he knew her, but beautiful just the same. A strand had fallen loose, chestnut brown and curled. He touched it, ran his finger across the single lock. Time melted away as he leaned into the familiar crook of her neck. The craving for her ran so damn deep it lived inside his bones.
He inhaled her, that honey scent, a new smell that in an instant marked her.
“Shan,” he whispered, rough and gravelly, filled with so much want for her, which had built over the years, grown higher, spread further, formed roots. Inhabited him. He was desperate to have her in his arms again, to smother her in kisses that erased all the years.
“Brent,” she whispered, his name sounding like sugar on her tongue.
He buried his face in her neck, layering kisses on her soft skin. “Where have you been?” he asked, though it was entirely rhetorical. She hadn’t been with him. He hadn’t been with her. That was the answer.
“Where were you?” she countered softly.
He lifted his face and looked her in the eyes as he brushed the back of his fingers along her cheek. “Thinking of you,” he said.
He didn’t know how he’d gone from breaking two glasses to finding her falling into his arms. But that was where they were. He cupped her cheeks in his hands. “You’re so fucking beautiful,” he rasped out, and then he crushed her mouth. He consumed her lips. He kissed her hard, and greedily, and the world around him turned black and small. It faded into a speck of nothingness because there was room for nothing else in his world but her.
