The YOUNG AND THE SUBMISSIVE by Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, and Isabella LaPearl - #BLOGTOUR, #BOOKREVIEW, #GIVEAWAY


Title: The Young & The Submissive
Series:  The Doms of Her Life
Authors: Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, and Isabella LaPearl
Release Date: October 29, 2013

Raine Kendall has everything a woman could want…almost. Sexy, tender Dom Liam O’Neill is her knight in shining armor, but Raine keeps pinching herself. Is he too good to be true or is this growing connection one that could last a lifetime? She’s constantly torn by her abiding feelings for her commanding boss, Macen “Hammer” Hammerman, especially in the wake of the mind-blowing night he cast aside the barriers between them and ravaged every inch of her body.

Hammer, Liam’s former best friend, can’t stop coveting Raine. But Liam is determined to hold and guide the woman he loves and see if she can be the submissive of his dreams. However, he’s finding that her trust is hard won and he needs a bloody crowbar to pry open her scarred soul. So he risks everything to win her once and for all. But once he’s put his daring plan in motion, will it cost Liam his heart if he loses Raine to Hammer for good?

The emotions and relationships in The Young and The Submissive were a train wreck. Raine admits her trust issues, but Liam and Macen's are just as overwhelming.  They both have unresolved trust issues from the past.  Their dominant natures don't allow them to express themselves fully and they are all a mess. 

The Liam and Macen are forced to work together to help Raine.  Even though they're still upset with each other they want what's best for Raine.

Beck also comes into this book a lot and we learn quite a bit about him.   We also learn more about Macen and his wife and a lot more about Raine's childhood.  Her trust issues stem from her childhood.

Finally there are quite a few steamy scenes.  Overall a great book.  I really can't wait for the next book.

Are you ready to get to know Malcom? FIND ME IN DARKNESS by Julie Kenner releases today and you can get your hands on it for just .99c!


Title: Find Me in Darkness
Series: Find Me
Author: Julie Kenner
Release Date:  January 13, 2015 
A doomed woman. A dangerous and mysterious man. And an epic passion that cannot be denied…
From the first moment I saw Malcolm, I felt his power shudder through me. Lithe and powerful, dark and controlling, he cast a spell over me that I didn’t understand, but to which I willingly surrendered. One touch and I melted. One glance into his storm-swept eyes and I was lost. One kiss, and I was bound. But sometimes passion can burn too hot, and it would take all of our strength for Mal and I to survive the fire that raged between us...  


Wow!  I just finished reading Find Me in Darkness and that's my first thought.  Find Me in Darkness was a very quick read, but be prepared to put everything else aside.  Once you start it you can't stop.  We met Mal in Caress of Darkness, but in this series we learn to love him.  One word to sum up Malcolm is intense.  He's also dedicated, loyal, protective, and sexy.  He's also all alpha male and extremely dominant.  I don't know how Julie Kenner does it, but each of her characters is different, but they are all almost perfect. 

From their first meeting Christina is drawn to Mal, but she has no idea why.  Mal knows why but he doesn't share.  They're relationship is doomed from the start, but the intensity and passion can't be stopped.  It's a forever kind of love.  It's tough to write about them without giving away any of the secrets in the book so let me just say that you have to read this book (and this series).  

I am so happy that the books are releasing next week and the week after because I need to know what happens with Mal and Christina.  I'm anxiously awaiting Book 2 and Book 3.  

I give Find Me in Darkness FIVE STARS! 


Find Me In Darkness – Part 1

Find Me In Pleasure – Part 2 - Jan 20th

Find Me in Passion – Part 3 - Jan 27th

  *** And be sure not to miss the first novella in this exciting and sexy series by Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner), Caress of Darkness, a 1001 Dark Nights novella.

Each of the 1001 Dark Nights novellas stands alone. (Caress of Darkness and the 2015 release, Caress of Pleasure.) The Find Me books are a true trilogy spanning Mal and Christina’s romance and are meant to be read in order.

Laura Kaye's dark romantic suspense series, The Hard Ink Series, keeps readers on the edge of their seat. Today, we are thrilled to share with you the cover for the upcoming novella, HARD TO BE GOOD. But that's not all we have! Check out the cover for the next novel in the series, HARD TO LET GO. We can't wait for you to get your hands on the next two Hard Ink men, Jeremy and Beckett. Without further ado...

Check out the beautiful cover for HARD TO BE GOOD!


Hard Ink Tattoo owner Jeremy Rixey has taken on his brother’s stateside fight against the forces that nearly killed Nick and his Special Forces team a year before. Now, Jeremy’s whole world has been turned upside down—not the least of which by a brilliant, quiet blond man who tempts Jeremy to settle down for the first time ever.

Recent kidnapping victim Charlie Merritt has always been better with computers than people, so when he’s drawn into the SF team’s investigation of his army colonel father’s corruption, he’s surprised to find acceptance and friendship—especially since his father never accepted who Charlie was. Even more surprising is the heated tension Charlie feels with sexy, tattooed Jeremy, Charlie’s opposite in almost every way.

With tragedy and chaos all around them, temptation flashes hot, and Jeremy and Charlie can’t help but wonder why they’re trying so hard to be good…

HardToLetGo CVR

Five dishonored soldiers.
Former Special Forces.
One last mission.
These are the men of Hard Ink.

Beckett Murda hates to dwell on the past. But his investigation into the ambush that killed half his Special Forces team and ended his Army career gives him little choice. Just when his team learns how powerful their enemies are, hard-ass Beckett encounters his biggest complication yet—a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey.

A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers' Hard Ink Tattoo shop following a bad break-up—and finds herself staring down the barrel of a stranger's gun. Beckett is hard-bodied and sexy as hell, but he's also the most infuriating man ever. Worse, Kat's brothers are at war with the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett's sights . . . and in his arms. Not to mention their enemies' crosshairs. Now Beckett and Kat must set aside their differences to work together, because the only thing sweeter than justice is finding love and never letting go.
