You know how you always say someday I will?

Well, I’ve hit my someday.

Someday begins today.

Baylee Morgan is at a crossroads of her life. Leaving her marriage of ten years and the only life she’s ever known, she starts over in a penthouse ocean-front condo in Santa Monica, California. She soon finds herself immersed, albeit reluctantly, in the daunting and perilous world of dating as an almost thirty-something in Los Angeles, unsure of how to act, what to do, or whether that hot guy she meets in yoga class is straight.

Sebby Powers’ dream has always been to work in the film industry. At the age of thirty-five, he’s one of the youngest up-and-coming producers in Hollywood. His life is perfect. Perfect apartment. Perfect girlfriend. Perfect dog. Until a friendship with a beautiful woman with vibrant red hair and a similar taste in cheesy movies throws his perfect life into a tailspin. 

The Other Side Of Someday is a fun, sexy story of looking for Mr. Right in a world full of Mr. Wrongs, when Mr. Right could be just next door.

Excerpt

 

“Sebby?” I called out, hesitantly walking through the entryway and into the open living space.

“Holy shit!” I exclaimed when my eyes settled on him standing in front of his refrigerator. But that wasn’t what caught me completely off-guard. It was the fact that he was standing there, holding a towel in his hand, exposing himself in all his glory. I quickly spun around, my entire face turning a shade of red that would put my hair color to shame.

“Fuck!” he shouted. “Do you take the world’s quickest shower or something?!”

“Balls,” I muttered, keeping my eyes glued to a large print of a vintage DC-10 that was hanging on the entryway wall.

“What?” he countered, his voice turning light and amused. I could almost picture that sexy and adorable smile drawn on those kissable lips of his.

“There were balls. And stuff.”

He laughed harder than I had heard him laugh in the few weeks I had known him, the rumble echoing in the open space.

“I’ll never be able to look at you again without seeing your balls, Sebby. Just thought you should know that.” I drew a long breath, trying to settle my nerves. Seeing his mouth-watering body completely bare didn’t help matters any. “Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to go back to my apartment. I’m going to have a shot of whiskey. Or tequila. Or gin. Or whatever will make my blood pressure drop. And then I’m going to come back and we’ll try this again, okay?”

“I promise I’ll be dressed when you come back.”

“Why were you bare ass naked in your kitchen anyway? Did you want me to walk in on you like that? Trying to show off?”

“Do you think I have something to show off?”

“I… Well…” I shook it off. “I’m not answering that.”

“Okay then.”

“Okay.”

“Baylee…?”

“Yes?” I turned around as one often does when their name is called.

“Jesus!” His expression grew wide and he hastily attempted to hide himself.

“For fuck’s sake!” I spun back and faced the door once more. “Did you not think to cover yourself up after the first time I walked in and saw you naked? I’m still standing here. You know that bath towels serve some rather astonishing purposes these days, the most useful of which being something to wrap around your waist to keep your junk covered! I’m leaving and taking two shots of whiskey. Be back in five minutes.”

Vicky’s Review
Loved, loved, loved it! I know I probably say this about all of T.K.’s books but I think this was my favoritest one yet! The chemistry between Baylee and Sebby is instant from the moment they meet. I loved this lighter side of this read and my sides still hurt from all the laughing I did through-out. Baylee needing to move on after some drama in her life takes off on an adventure and it was interesting to see where her journey takes her. I loved getting to see bits and pieces of her mother through her journal, it gave the story an element that needed to be there. We meet some interesting characters, and some not so savory ones. There is lots of fun to be had while reading it and there were a few times it gave me goosebumps as I was reading. The anticipation I had in waiting for this one definitely payed off. I hope to see more of these types of stories from her. And oh the men she dreams up has me confused as to who I should love more. Did I say I loved it? Great read, well written and moved at a great pace. It was inspiring at times and others it will make you want to throw your kindle- so make sure you have a good protective case 😉 . I can’t say anything more with out spoiling it for you, so you will just have to read it to find out why I enjoyed it so much!

Shaun Brannon is broken to the core. But even though Kelsey’s heart is cracking as she helps him carry the weight of his past, she can’t walk away from her promise to be there for him, and she can’t ignore her deepening feelings. So she tries to accept the little he’s offering, even though she wants it all. But after months of wrestling with her emotions, she decides she must risk losing him by asking for more than he’s prepared to give her.
Shaun won’t admit it, but he aches for more than Kelsey’s warm body in his bed. The problem is, something stands between them. The whole truth about what happened eight years ago. When Kelsey demands to have all of him or she’ll walk away, he knows the time has come to tell her the truth. But the fear of reliving the past is just as paralyzing as the thought of losing her.

Oh man this one was a doozy of a roller coaster ride. There are different twists and turns and I could not put it down! In this one we get a glimpse of Shaun’s past with Carmen. There is such a love between them, you can see why he is tortured with the thought of loving again. Kelsey has some big changes happen for her, and when things go awry it seems all is lost. Will they be able to find what they are both looking for? Dori definitely has a way of drawing you in and only giving enough information as you need it to keep you guessing. I loved this installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book as Shaun returns to his hometown to face his demons. I wonder what that one had in store for us!!

Cinnamon and Sunshine
Sage Springs Series, Book 3

By Hollie Westring

Release: Friday, Jan. 16, 2015

Lexi Alamont’s been looking for love for years. But living in the small town of Sage Springs, Mo., means the search has not been fruitful. Sure, there are ghosts galore in town, but the selection of living men isn’t anything to write home about. She’s happily watched her two best friends meet their matches, and she can’t help but think that maybe she’ll have her chance before long.

When Cruz Drakov comes back into town to do some work for his paranormal TV show, Lexi’s called in to sweeten up the crew with her baked goods. With her growing business being praised from the mouths of celebrities, Lexi’s happy to oblige. What she isn’t expecting is to gain the attention of the guy who’s everything she’s shied away from. Cruz is a self-assured witch, a realist, and not afraid to play the field with his charismatic demeanor. Lexi’s optimistic, sweet, and looking for the one who will make her heart whole.

Sometimes love is hiding in places you’d least expect. Just ask Lexi and Cruz.

Suleika’s Review

OMGosh! Best Book EVER! Like seriously it is sooooo good. Romantic and funny and emotional, it has everything even a little mystery.
I loved the first 2 books in the series and I was thinking that #2 was my favorite so far but I totally changed my mind with this one, Lexy and Cruz are the best couple ever! They both were great characters, just perfect in every way and I already loved them before but on their story I fell in love with both of them even harder. The story is perfect, not a single boring moment. So many funny moments, I was LOL so hard last night. There is this part where Cruz asks Lexy if she was checking his @ss and it is so funny I am laughing again just thinking about it.
We see a different side to Cruz that I totally loved, he is so different than what we thought of him from book #2 and although I loved him on that book I loved him even more after I got to know this side of him.
I loved that all 3 girls were very much on Lexy’s story and that their friendship was as strong as before if not more.
I absolutely loved how the author ended the story and I was very much satisfied and happy. I was very emotional because it was very beautiful too, you might cry if you are as invested in the series as I was.
Perfect conclusion to the series and I really wish there could be more, I am really not ready to say goodbye to Sage Springs, it is a great series!!!
I have to say this series it’s my #1 this year.
If you like witches and towns full of friendly ghosts, a story full of love and friendships and even a little mystery then this is the series for you!.

Vicky’s Review

Loved this book in the series!! I am sad to finish though as I have come to love Sage Springs and its inhabitants. Lexi seems to be looking for love in all the WRONG places. After a string of bad dates, Cruz shows back up in town to shoot his paranormal celebrity ghost show. The kiss they had last summer has stuck with them both. Has what Lexi has been looking for been this close and in front of her this whole time? Knowing Cruz is only going to be there for a few short weeks Lexi decides to make the best of it and try not to let her heart get lost and broken in the process. There are a few twists and turns and, I had a hard time putting it down as I could not wait to see how the story unfolded. Excellent read, great series, awesome characters. I am hoping that maybe there will be an off-shoot to the series. I would like to know more about Bianca, as I think she just wears a tough exterior and really does have a heart inside. Overall I really liked how each book in the series centered around a specific character but that they were all included in the stories.

Vicky’s 5*  Review

This story was gut wrenchingly amazing. There was plenty of ups and downs, mystery and suspense to keep me intrigued through out. I must advise stocking up on tissues for this one though as it had me going on a roller coaster of emotions.. #Happiness #Sadness #Hatred and #Love this is just some of the emotions you go through with Marley and Her twin Brother Cam who if you got to read The Beautiful Mess Series or Heart of Light you had already gotten to meet. I love the fact that we get to know Cam in his younger years and get to learn more about his sister Marley. I liked the fact that some of the story is told in the form of Marley’s journal. It gives us a deeper feel of what she is going through. This story deals with some hard but true life issues that are sometimes just brushed under the rug. We get a peek into what one faces after trauma, and the aftermath of Mental Illness that can come along with it. Can Marley escape the darkness that is shrouding her life and find the light? Or will she be consumed by it and let it take over? You will have to read to find out.This was very well written and I cant wait to learn more about some of the other characters in the book, and see what paths they take on their journey’s…


Excerpt

I had gotten used to things over the years. Marley’s emotions always took you on a wild roller coaster ride, the ebb and flow often unexpected and sometimes tumultuous. But during those moments that things flattened out, and the ups and downs of her life were on an even keel, even if for just an instant, those were the times that I treasured. I wouldn’t trade those rare memories for anything in the world. Those were the times that I saw the real Marley…the girl that forced me to play Barbie’s with her, the girl that convinced me the mud pie she made for me was really chocolate. The way her eyes brimmed with enthusiasm and mischief at the same time, you couldn’t help but believe her, knowing that she would squeal with excitement and delight when you pretended to take a bite of her ‘chocolate’ pie.

“Remember the tree house?” she asked, bringing me back from my own memories. I could hear the lump in her throat.

“How could I forget? You hounded Dad for months to build you one.”

“Remember going out there after he died, but before Mama lost the house?”

I nodded, finding Marley’s hand and grabbing it. “Yeah, I do.”

I felt her body tremble beside me as big, fat rain drops began to fall. “I think it would have been the best tree house on the block.”

“The way Dad doted on you, it would have been a tree mansion by the time he was done with it.”

Losing my father was hard enough when I was just eight, but having to be faced with the constant reminders of his life made it even more difficult. The worst was looking out our back window at a tree that he had begun to build a house in for Marley and me. The night that Mama had explained to us that Dad had gone to heaven and wouldn’t be coming back, I remember glancing out there and seeing Marley sitting on the lone wood plank that he had set up as the foundation of the tree house. Nearly every night that we lived in that house, we would go out there and simply lay down and look at the stars.

“This reminds me of that,” I said softly. “Of those nights in the tree house.”

The sound of thunder boomed around us and we remained on that roof, not caring that we were both drenched from the late summer downpour cloaking the town.

“Me, too,” Marley said. “I think that’s why I like coming out here so much. It reminds me of ‘before’. It makes me feel closer to Dad. I always swore I could hear him talking to me in that tree house and, some nights when I’m out here, I can still hear him.”

“What does he say?”

She turned to face me and almost broke into tears. “That he’s proud of you. That he can’t believe how much of him he sees in you. That he’s happy you don’t let anyone or anything influence your decisions. That he’s thankful you’ve never abandoned me.

Vicky’s 5* Review

I really liked getting to know Cali and Owen. I thought it was great that they had found each other again and reconnected. There was a LOT of steaminess throughout the story.. But enough storyline to keep you wondering what was going to happen next. Add in drama and some twists here and there and it made for a great read. Michelle was very descriptive and that helped make you feel as if you could see what she was describing. Owen is definitely Book Boyfriend Material.. Hot, caring, and a hefty pocketbook.. He would do anything for Cali and makes sure to let her know how much she means to him, but when disaster strikes and unknown people try to bring Cali harm, will he be able to? Or will they both fall prey to what evil is lurking? If you like a steamy read that will keep you intrigued then this one is for you…

Vicky’s Review

5* All the way!

What can I say. I fell in love with Cam in The Beautiful Mess Series. He was such a sweet guy who always seemed to be trying to help others, even if it meant sacrificing his own happiness. In this book he is no different. We start off with a girl escaping a hotel where she has been being held against her will for quite some time. With the help of a loving staff member from the hotels staff she manages to flee. But to what? Getting as far away as she can she ends up on a beach.. Where she meets the owner of the house she is renting. When she looks into his eyes she can feel the safety and comfort she longs for. Now don’t let me fool you into thinking this is all sugar-coated happily ever after kind of story. Jolene is a strong woman but she has a lot of issues and distrust especially when it comes to the opposite sex. She is a feisty one and I loved the bickering back and forth between her and Cam. There is some darker issues in the story-line but T.K. did a wonderful job with the story and I fell in love with these new characters. The story line was gripping and the character’s were very relate-able. There are some ups and downs through out, and a very special guest shows up!!

There is so much I want to tell you but I don’t want to ruin it for you… you will just have to read it and see. 😉

Excerpt

“Why don’t you like being touched?” he asked quietly in a bold move.

Jolene stopped dead in her tracks, glaring at him. “I just don’t, alright?” she hissed, her voice raised. “And it’s none of your fucking business why I act the way I do. I see what you’re trying to do, Doctor.” She spun around and stormed back toward the house, wanting to get far away from his prying, yet consoling, eyes.

“What, Jolene? What am I doing? I just want to get to know you. I want to spend time with you, and I need to know why certain things set you off so that I don’t do them!” He ran along the shore, catching up to her, stopping short when he almost reached out and grabbed her arm to force her to talk to him.

Feeling him approach behind her, she reeled around. The expression on her face was fierce. “You’ve been a therapist for far too long. You need to get it out of your head that you can help me.” The ocean wind whipped her hair in front of her face and her voice rose in anger. “You can’t! No one can! So just stop! Stop taking an interest in me! Stop with the whole nice guy act because, based on my experience, that’s all it is!” she cried through her tears, her voice becoming barely audible. “A fucking act.”

She closed her eyes and inhaled deeply before opening them, the pain of what she had experienced the past decade of her life visible in the look of unease on her face. She took a step closer, her eyes remaining glued to Cam’s.

“You show up on my doorstep acting like my savior when the world has gone to shit. You tell me how you’ll look after me and protect me. And you know what those are?” She could see the hurt that her words were causing him, but she didn’t care.

“Lies, Cam,” she said quietly. “Just lies. You say you’ll help me and watch over me, but you’ll turn. I can’t… I can’t go through that again. Please. I beg you. Just stay away from me.” She spun around and began walking briskly away from him.

“You don’t have to do this, Jolene!” he shouted, running to catch up with her. “You don’t have to choose fear.”

“Yes, I do,” she insisted, turning to face him once more. “It’s the only way that he won’t…”

“You can choose me instead,” he interrupted.

Her breath caught at his unexpected reply. “Cam, I…” She trailed off, hiding her tear-filled eyes.

“Don’t let your fear control you, Jolene,” he implored, his voice soft. He brought his body close to hers. “Please, choose me, not fear.”

About the Author

T.K. Leigh

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is the USA Today Best Selling author of the Beautiful Mess series. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn’t until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre.

When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

Review Tour + Giveaway for High Class Harlot (Switching Tracks Series, Book Two) By Delia Steele

Blurb:

People spend their whole lives being condescending cockstars. Assuming they know something when they don’t. Assuming they know who someone is when they have no idea. Assuming that, because they can see something, they understand it. Let me tell you right now, STOP ASSUMING! Until you walk a day in someone’s gold-studded hooker heels, you do not know them or their story. Do not assume your struggle is worse simply because it’s yours. Do not assume they are ok just because they look to be so. And do not assume you are a better person simply because someone chooses to sin differently than you.

My family has money. We buy what we want without fear of being destitute, and we will never worry about having food or any other necessities. My struggle in life is not with the money, but where it comes from. My father’s secret is carrying a hefty price tag that I can no longer afford. My soul is priceless, and he is stripping it away from me. My world isn’t all rainbows, sparkle, and diamonds falling from my exit hole like Rory’s story portrayed. For every high, there is a low, and the higher you go, the further you have to fall.

I have the best things in life, except for life itself. Everyone I love has moved away; my passion to exist has deflated; my job is a joke; but more than anything, I hate who I am allowing myself to become. Is there anyone strong enough to hold my hand on this road to self-preservation, or am I to travel it alone?

If you start my story, please find it in yourself to finish it before you judge me. Don’t assume you can know where I am headed without seeing where I have already been. I am Amandolette Riaz, and I am a glitzed-up glitch in today’s delicate world.

**High Class Harlot is Book 2 in the Switching Tracks Series. It can be read as a standalone but most characters are introduced in Book 1, Trailer Park Princess. High Class Harlot picks up in timeline where Trailer Park Princess ends.**

Review:

******Where do I even start. In the first book in the series Trailer Park Princess we got to meet Rory’s crazy best friend Mando, this is her story. And I anxiously awaited this one. I loved Mando and here we get to see a different side of her. As she struggles with new revelations and relationships we find her #Sparkle starting to fade. Being as stubborn as she is she keeps it all on the inside and tries to deal with it on her own. Will she be able to bring her shine back? Or will she self destruct and take everyone down with her? And although I love her craziness I was glad to get to know her on a deeper level. The story was well written and I devoured it in NO time. I cannot wait to see what the other stories in the series bring. I like to get to know the character’s back story. It really helps you understand why they are, even if you hate them. Ugh of course we have to deal with #DRAMA and #ISSUES but this would not be Mando’s story with out it. This is a must read for those who like an excellent story-line filled with twists, romance, and a grandma just as crazy as Mando. And don’t forget to #LetYourTacoSparkle ******

About the Author:

Delia lives in Mississippi, better known as “The Sip”, where she was born and raised, aside from the short time she spent wandering the beaches of Destin, Florida. She has two amazing kids who are the light in her life, and she is married to a very patient and loving man. She works a fulltime job Monday–Friday. Yes, she’s so domesticated! Delia is Mexican-American, or in her words, “brown!” In her spare time, she enjoys singing extremely loud, dancing around for hours, and watching her kids just be kids. Delia is eclectic and obsessive. She is always happy. She believes we should all have fun sometimes, and when we do something stupid, we should write about it, dude! If she could be anything when she grows up—because she is currently refusing to—she wants to be a fulltime superhero. You know, wear awesome boots; have long, full, flowing hair; wear her panties on the outside of her clothes (and have it be OK); ride on a magical horse with wings; and save the world. Who wouldn’t want to do that? Happy Reading!
