[Blog Tour] Forbidden


Title: Forbidden
Book #: 1
Series: The Gabriel Lennox Series
Author: M.L. Desir
Publisher: Booktrope


Who wants to live forever and at what cost? Forbidden, Book One of the Gabriel Lennox series, is a dark fantasy that asks this very question.

Three-hundred-year-old Gabriel Lennox doesn't look a day over 18 and despises being called a vampire. He prefers living separately from the decadent pathetic blood drinkers known as the Chosen. Gabriel prefers to live as an immortal who abstains from the liquid red heat simply because he chooses to do so.

He resists the desire for blood until three other immortals intrude upon his life of solitude and elitism. Beautiful and powerful Lilith, his alleged creator, wields the ability to torment him through visions of the past he would rather forget. Seth, a sadistic monster in the guise of a handsome youth, has the power to bless or curse others with dreams or nightmares. Nikolai, a mysterious child robbed of his innocence and mortality is the third of the interlopers who wreak havoc on Gabriel's solitude. 

Through these three, a dramatic series of events unfolds that will force Gabriel to choose between his desire for isolation from humankind and his fellow Chosen or his thirst for justice in a world where injustice is rapidly gaining.

[Review] Wrecked & Yours

Wrecked and Yours

 What could drive best friends apart? 
Once Miranda, her little sister Cassie and Jason were inseparable—homeless teens standing together against the rest of the world.

But those days are long gone.

Unable to deal with the ghosts of her past any longer, MirandaTemple abandons her life and everyone she knew, determined to carve a new identity.
She thought nothing could make her go back, but when her beloved younger sister Cassie is in a car accident, she discovers she was wrong.

As Cassie fights for her life, Miranda has to try to pick up the pieces of the destruction she left. And face the inner turmoil she’d always tried to deny before it permanently destroys any chance for happiness.

Jason swears his friendship with her is ruined. But as Miranda and Jason worry about Cassie, they start to rediscover each other and learn how to forgive. But with so many scars separating them, can they learn to trust each other again?




CeeCee James is a new author to me, and I’m so so glad that I’ve discovered her. The writing in this novel is beautiful and brushes on so many subjects. The imagery was simply astonishing and makes you feel as if you’re there with the characters. I haven’t been reading for quite a while, as I’ve been going through some rough times. With the end of an 8 year relationship, moving halfway across the country, and leaving everything that I’ve known I have been an emotional basket case. Whether it was hiding my emotions from myself or other people, to outright bawling my eyes out because I had a bad day.

THIS novel is the reason I read books.  I feel like this novel brought me back to life.  The messages of strength and resilience throughout this book made me realize that I WILL survive, just like the characters in this book. I know it’s a really far-fetched correlation between my situation and Jason, Miranda, and Cassie– but the struggle is real no matter what your issues are.  The pure will to survive on the journey that these characters take is simply magnificent.

If you don’t know my reviews, I don’t like to tell you about the story; that’s what a synopsis is for.  My feeling towards this book is what you should want to know. Well, let me tell you… this is an amazing read. I laughed (the witty banter is unreal), cried, smiled, and genuinely cared what happened to the outcome of each character. My mind is still reeling over everything. From Jason’s crooked grins to Miranda’s anxiety attacks I felt pure joy and sadness. The level of unbridled forgiveness in this novel is astonishing.

I devoured Wrecked & Yours in one sitting, and sat there after the end just waiting for the next installment to magically pop into my kindle and say READ ME! Well, as much as I stared… it didn’t happen. Seriously, CeeCee James you’re outstanding. You’ve most definitely got a new follower in me. I eagerly anticipate the next installment of Miranda, Jason, and Cassie’s journey, along with your other novels that are now on my absolutely must read list!

 Recommendations for this book will be flying out of my mouth, because I think that EVERYONE should read this.  So get to it.

[Book Blitz] Strip Back

 photo Strip Back banner_zps08jl4s9m.jpg

Book: Strip Back
Series: Naked Nights #0.5
Author: Ava Manello

Synopsis

 photo Ebook_zps7fwsn65g.jpg

Strip Back brings you back to how the Naked Night's began. This is Eric's story. Back when life was a little less polished, and a whole lot harder.

Before there was Strip Teaser, there was Eric; manager and founder of the Naked Night’s male stripper troupe.

You wouldn’t think you’d be past it at 34, but that’s the position Eric found himself in, as well as newly single after finding his girlfriend in a compromising position.

Setting up the Naked Night’s wasn’t easy, it wasn’t fun, and it wasn’t without sleaze, but somehow he did it.

Strip Back is a humorous and steamy tale of one man’s journey to fulfill a dream. Not all male strippers are the same.

What others are saying 

Ava has fantastic penmanship to bring to life a band of male strippers with her own style of panache. It was great to see how Eric put together his team and how Guido the Italian Stallion from ……. (hahahaa not gonna tell you if you haven’t read Strip Teaser ☺ ) got his spot too. ~ Goodreads 

I love Ava Manello's writing style. Her characters are charming and have a sense of humor. You truly route for their happiness because they are so likeable. This story also has a strong plot, and is filled with steamy scenes. ~ Goodreads 

Wow... Wow.... Wow, yes the very very talented Ava Manello did it again, she had me gripped from start to finish.
I loved seeing how it all began, I love even more how loveable Eric is, he's incredibly sweet with a huge amount of sexy thrown in. ~ Goodreads

This was great !! I had already read and loved Strip Teaser...these books have a great storyline and tons of hotness and humor it is just a refreshing change !! ~ We Stole Your Book Boyfriend
