About The Book

Laney Briggs was almost certain that her sexy-assed Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson, was gonna pop the question. Instead, he went and pulled one helluva fast one—he arrested her best friend, Luke Wagner, and skipped out. Now Pistol Rock’s firecracker deputy is ready to go Wild West on Gunner…if she can just keep that raw, sexual chemistry under control.

Gunner was planning to propose, and it all went to hell. Now he’s boots-deep into an investigation with ties to the Dirty Southern Mafia and corrupt cops. Yep, Laney is definitely gonna have his hide. Especially when she finds out just how much he’s been keeping from her…

But Laney has a weakness for Gunner’s delectable cowboy hotness. And for him, she will break every rule in the book—including the ones she’s sworn to uphold.

See where the sparks began to fly with book 1 of the Deputy Laney Briggs series, Pretty Reckless.

Her gaze fell to my ass, then rose to my face. “I didn’t know a case of blue balls was on the dinner menu for the evening.”

Ouch. In response to her question, I tipped my hat and said, “Darling, I can’t help it if the good Lord made me healthily endowed.”

Her eyebrow arched. “Oh my god, you’re thinking about me naked.”

Naked. Up against the wall. Screaming my name. Hell, I’d take any one of them and not in a particular order.

“Well, yeah.”

“That could become a real big problem.”

“Tell me about it.”

Laney laughed, the girly sound of her voice making the strain beating down my fly even more painful. “Because I’m thinking about whether the townsfolk will disapprove of me sending another load of rock salt into your ass.”

She must’ve noticed the wince that slipped from my lips, because her upper lip twitched in an attempt to suppress that pretty plump smile of hers.

I shrugged a shoulder. “They would, I promise.”

“Really?” She stepped in closer and ran a hand down my chest, sending every single cell in my body humming let’s have sex. “I probably could convince them it was an accident,” she said, tossing me a cute wink.

There’d be no argument from me on that accurate assessment. Maybe if I played my cards right on the ride over to our house she’d hear me out. God, I was gonna have to master a skill and learn to swallow my pride this time around.

“If you give me a ride, I’ll confess to whatever questions asked.”

The car keys dangled in her petite hands—the same hands that held the power to drive me nuts by simply squeezing my ass. She looked around, almost nervous about what to say next, then fitted me with an icy stare capable of sawing me in two. “Well, cowboy, it looks like you’re in luck. I know just the place to drop ya off at.”

Pathetic, how much I enjoyed that nickname

***Trigger Warning*** This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Book Review

This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp was a very interesting book to read.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this  book but the subject manner intrigued me so I knew I had to give it a chance.  This was an easy read because it is a YA novel so that made it a super quick read which is good because I can squeeze it in between other books.  This book was hard to read at times simple because of the subject but even during those times I wanted to keep reading.  It reminds me of movies where you want to look away from what is going on but you can’t because you have to know what is going to happen.  If you are looking for a different type of book to read I would for recommend this book to you.  Please don’t read this book if violence or guns can trigger you.

This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Silently Broken by Maegan Abel


Silently Broken by Maegan Abel was a good book.  This is the 2nd book in the series and you can read this book without reading the first book but if I could recommend one thing I would say to read the books in order.  I was able to figure out what was going on but it would have been easier if I had read the first book.  There are parts where things didn’t make sense because of the fact that I didn’t know the back story.  I really did enjoy this book even when I was lost.  The author did a great job of helping me understand why the characters did what they did.  I love when authors can make me feel like I am there with the characters and this author was able to do that.  If you love thrillers than I know you will love this book.

About The Author

Maegan despises writing about herself in the third person. She also hates touting her accomplishments like she thinks she’s really done anything special…

Now that we got that out of the way, I’ll tell you what you need to know. I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I went back to school in my late twenties and studied Stage Production Technology. I now work full-time in the alterations shop of a major department store and part-time backstage in the various theatres around the area.

I’ve been an avid reader from a very young age and the top goal on my list of things to accomplish in my life was to write and publish a book. During the summer of 2013, while working backstage on The Lion King, I read eleven books in four weeks. I read my first New Adult book and was introduced to a genre I felt I could totally relate to. The idea for Perfectly Broken and the character of Lili was born backstage during that time.

The Fury by Shane Gericke

TLC Book Tours

The Fury by Shane Gericke was an amazing book.  If I am being honest I only picked this book because it was a thriller so I went in more blind than I usually do when it comes to books that I review.  I am so glad that I decided to review this book because I loved everything about it.  As most of you know I love thrillers and this book didn’t let me down.  It kept me reading right up until the end because I had to know what happened and how it ended.  I loved all the characters in this book and the setting was also something that I really enjoyed.  This was one of those books that once you get to the end of it you can’t stop thinking about it and I usually have to take a day off between books because I can’t stop thinking about the book I just finished.  If you love thriller books I would add this one to your must read list and trust me you won’t regret it.

The Fury by Shane Gericke

About The Book

The Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico washes a cache of doomsday weapons onto a Mexican beach: bombs filled with VX nerve gas mixed with anthrax, invented by the Nazis during World War II and perfected by the United States to use in the Cold War. The bombs soon fall into the wrong hands and create an unstoppable opponent. Only one Chicago Police detective has a chance of preventing those bombs from being used on American soil.

Reeling from the recent murder of her husband as well as allegations of police misconduct, Detective Superstition “Sue” Davis is thrown into an undercover assignment. She must infiltrate the Mexican narcotics cartel responsible for the death of her husband in order to get close to the cartel’s sociopathic enforcer, Jiminez “Jimmy” Garcia.

But when the entire Garcia family is killed in Mexico by a U.S. Special Forces raid gone wrong, Garcia will stop at nothing to get vengeance, including triggering newly acquired bombs on American soil. Superstition’s assignment quickly becomes more dangerous than planned as the threat of a terrorist attack looms closer.

Welcome, Reluctant Stranger by E Journey

iRead Book Tour Logo Medium

Welcome, Reluctant Stranger by E Journey is the last book in the “Between Two Worlds” series.  I have to say that this was my least favorite book in the series and I am not sure why.  I just didn’t feel like I could connect with these characters as well as  I did with the other characters in the first two books.  There were also places where this book didn’t seem to flow as well.  Now with all that being said I did still like this book.  I like that you don’t have to read all the books to know what is going on.  If you love romance novels than I would check out this series because even though I liked the first two books more than this one I would still recommend the entire series to you.

Welcome, Reluctant Stranger!

About The Book

Frantic flight, peaceful life. Act of treason on an island country. Cauldron of warring emotions. Exotic beauty, ace with a gun. Hunk with gifts for mockery and cooking.

Nine-year-old Leilani and her family mysteriously flee the island country of Costa Mora, leaving her father. Years later, her peaceful solitary life in California ends when she rescues Justin Halverson from thugs and she learns a devastating truth about her father. As she agonizes over her father, Justin comforts her, and they’re drawn closer together.

With Justin, she returns to her birthplace to get her father quietly out. There, she reconnects with her past, but can she forgive her father and accept him for who he is? Can she finally be at peace with who she is? Welcome, Reluctant Stranger interweaves a love story into a tale of past political intrigue and Leilani’s inner journey, accepting her past.


About The Author

EJourney is a realist who thinks she has little imagination. Credit that to her training (Ph. D., University of Illinois) and work in mental health, writing for academics and bureaucrats, and critiquing the work of others. She’s been striving ever since to think and write like normal people.

She’s a well-traveled flâneuse—a female observer-wanderer—who watches, observes, listens. And writes. A sucker for happy endings, she finds enough that depresses her about real life, but seeks no catharsis by writing about it. For her, writing is escape, entertainment. She doesn’t strive to enlighten. Not deliberately. But the bias of her old profession does carry over into her writing. So, instead of broad shoulders and heaving bosoms, she goes into protagonists’ thoughts, emotions, inner conflicts, insecurities, and struggles to reach balance and grow.
