Snow White Lies


Evil poisons everyone. Period. Our mouths water when we sink our teeth into what we have always craved. Surrendering to our desires by biting off delectable piece of the forbidden fruit is nothing more than a meager confession: Poison tastes sinfully sweet,”—Confessions of the Big Apple Debutante, by blogger Miss Snow White.

I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?

[Blog Tour] Black Iris

by Leah Raeder
Black Iris

It only took one moment of weakness for Laney Keating’s world to fall apart. One stupid gesture for a hopeless crush. Then the rumors began. Slut, they called her. Queer. Psycho. Mentally ill, messed up, so messed up even her own mother decided she wasn't worth sticking around for.

If Laney could erase that whole year, she would. College is her chance to start with a clean slate.

She's not looking for new friends, but they find her: charming, handsome Armin, the only guy patient enough to work through her thorny defenses—and fiery, filterless Blythe, the bad girl and partner in crime who has thorns of her own.

But Laney knows nothing good ever lasts. When a ghost from her past resurfaces—the bully who broke her down completely—she decides it's time to live up to her own legend. And Armin and Blythe are going to help.

Which was the plan all along.

Because the rumors are true. Every single one. And Laney is going to show them just how true.

She's going to show them all.


Wow, what can one really say about Black Iris? Leah Raeder is an absolute genius. The way she twists her words around to become the insane story that ends up being written is just beyond my comprehension. I mean she brings a whole new level of amazing to the plate here. I have to say that this novel is definitely more on the dark side, and I absolutely loved it. Leah Raeder makes dark and dangerous into completely irresistible and sexy.

The twists and turns that inevitably set this up for one of the most brilliant and epic reads of your life. However, this may be too dark for some, I have to admit that I completely fell in love. Throughout the novel you'll uncover lies, angst, secrets, betrayal, lust, heartbreak, and anger. Honestly I didn't know what was going to happen next, and to who. Black Iris is completely enthralling in so many ways. The fact that Leah put a book out there with the subject of bullying is in itself beautiful. Yes, it's a dark novel, but the truth is so many people fall victim of bullying, harrassment, and just any type of mental abuse. Why? Because they're different. There are a lot of people who can relate to this story in some way or another.

Again while it may be dark, it's absolutely worth the read. The secrets, lies, and betrayals that you think are going to shock you are just the beginning. The heartache that I felt while reading this was so uncontrollably real. I really felt for the characters, and can understand why Laney does what she does. I think that finding out who you are is the most important thing in life, and for Leah Raeder to recognize that and actually turn it into a story for people to read is beyond amazing. I can't tell you more about this book because I feel that anything that I could say about it would be spoiler-ish. Just prepare yourself for a mind-fuckery of a lifetime, and make sure your heart can handle it. The feels are undoubtedly going to knock you on your ass.

If you can handle a darker romance story, this is definitely the novel for you. This is a must read for me, and I can guarantee that you'll recommend this story to so many of your friends. Even if you recommend this just to talk about with someone... it's totally worth the read.

[Blog Tour] Opulence

  thumbnail (2)

Displaying 9781511730020.jpg

When I was twenty-eight years old, I wrote my own winning lottery ticket. A simple idea thrust me onto the fast track to wealth, and into a world I had only ever dreamt about. I submerged myself in the unfamiliar, a life that seemed all too alluring … until it lost its appeal.
I made my fortune, built my castle, and then exiled myself within its comforts once reality set in.
Far too late, I discovered I was drowning in a sea of hungry sharks. Given the choice to sink or swim, I chose the latter … and it cost me everything.
Devin McIntyre, the most dangerous shark of them all, was the last nail in my naïve coffin. His beautiful smile and amazing cock tainted me in ways I could have never imagined.
I craved him. I needed him. I loved him.
Miserable with the outcome of my prosperity, I set out to change what disgusted me most—the first decision being to rid myself of Devin. Little did I know that taking that first step would make me a slave to a man far more tempting … or that my addiction to Devin would threaten to ruin it all.

*** If you are not a fan of cursing, erotic and extremely explicit sex, cheating, immoral behavior, dysfunction or sexual scenarios that may make you feel uncomfortable this is not the series for you. 

Wow. This was one intense story. I'm so definitely happy that I got the chance to read this novella. I can't lie, the author had me at “Filthy erotic romance”. I was like SOLD! Then I read the synopsis and it was all over with. Hook, line, and sinker this girl was done for. From the first page you'll get drawn in, and unmercifully heated to your core, until the last page. No joke, I like to read before I go to sleep, and I read the first chapter and fell asleep. The second I woke up I dove in for more and completely devoured this novella. This is one of those stories you put your real life on hold for.

I loved Nina. I thought she was fierce and unrelenting, although a bit cold and maybe a little bit of a bitch. However, I've been told i'm quite the bitch, so I take kindly to other bitches... I guess it's like an understanding of sorts. There's an air about us that we just instantly connect on a different, albeit “bitchy” way. I do have to say that I absolutely hated Devin. From the first time of his mention to the very end of this novella, and that hatred got immensely worse through out the story. Devin could do no right in my eyes, even if the sexy scenes were out of this world. Although, my definitive favorite would be Aiden. So much sex on a stick.

Opulence packs a real punch for not only your heart, but your panties too. I was literally shocked when I finished the novella, partly because of the twist you just don't see coming, but the cliff hanger of a lifetime. I NEED the second novella, Reverence – RIGHT NOW! Oh god, how does it work out!? Aiden!? Nina!? Devin!? Well played, Angelica Chase... well played.

Angelica Chase may be a new author to me, but let me tell you her writing is fabulous. I left the story wanting nothing more than well, more. The way she writes her stories make the words fly off the page and move to an erotic dance around you, captivating you. I can't wait for more in this series, and I definitely need to check out her other series, Sexual Awakenings. Ms. Chase you have absolutely found a new fangirl in me! In case anyone is wondering... YOU NEED TO READ THIS! For so many reasons,you should read this. (Providing you're okay with an erotic story)

Opulence Teaser 1

“Fucking ride it,” he ordered, digging his fingers into my hips. I took in his lusty gaze as he eyed my bouncing chest. His wavy, dark brown hair glistened with a small amount of moisture from his exertion, sweat trickling down the front of his tuxedo shirt. His dilated pupils were a far cry from the dark blue depths that normally mirrored a stormy deep sea. He licked his full bottom lip as he thrust up hard, making me scream out.
“This is what you wanted,” he chided as he battered me with his cock, pounding it in from underneath me as I whimpered through the intensity of his thrusts. He made use of the leather chair he sat on, using the firm cushion to piston his hips upward and bury his length inside of me. He was beyond a skilled lover, and when Devin wanted to punish you, you damn sure knew it. Feeling him on the brink, I moaned in protest as he pulled out quickly and ordered me to my knees. “Suck me off.” Kneeling in front of him now, I looked up to see him eye me expectantly. Without waiting for me to fully open my mouth, he pushed to the back of my throat as he came in hot spurts, and I choked it down willingly. “So fucking dirty,” he murmured, massaging up and down my throat with his fingertips as his pumping slowed. He pulled out, rubbing the last drop over my lips. “Every drop,” he demanded, pushing his tip back slightly inside my mouth, forcing me to take the last of it in. “Nothing better than you, Nina,” he whispered sweetly, though the words were anything but. The truth was, I hated this beautiful man. I hated that I wanted him so desperately. At one time, he’d meant everything to me. Now I longed for the day I could break free, but I craved him like a drug.
I fed his need for dominance; he fed my inner whore.

Lust… My darkness was born in it. Her secret was created by it. My job was immersed in it. It would either ruin us or save us.
My name is Caden Morgan, and I am a sex surrogate. After years of seclusion and fear-induced abstinence, Ivy Jaymes came to me to fix her. Her love of erotic books brought her out of hiding and into my office. I had done this sort of thing hundreds of times… but she was different. Ivy’s secrets threatened my own. Her darkness paralleled mine. And my obsession for her was sure to break me.
Could we heal each other with love? Or would we end up decimating one another with Lust?

[Review] Aventurine

Aventurine (Chalcedony Chronicles #3)

Mari’s past and present are all mixed together. To start she finds herself trapped in the past while her friends from the past are now all in the future. She wants to go home, but Logan Jones has different plans—which include Mari. He might say he wants her, but soon she realizes that there’s something more behind it. To save everyone in the future, Mari strikes a deal. She must give up Seth and agree to date Logan. In return, he’ll teach her to how help her friends and family. Only, letting go of Seth and falling for Logan aren’t easy feats. If Mari can’t figure out how to do so, she might lose everyone she loves. 

          Let me start by saying that I'm forever in awe of BK's masterpieces that she calls novels. If you haven't started reading this series (The Chalcedony Chronicles), you should IMMEDIATELY start. This author has had me completely immersed in her works since her very first novel, To Stand By Her. I've been completely captivated by BK's raw talents and the immense originality and creativity behind her stories. Honestly I don't think I'll ever stop gushing about B. Kristin McMichael. Anyone I meet whether it be online or in person, and I know they're a reader – I suggest this authors novels to.   
           Aventurine is the 3rd installment in The Chalcedony Chronicles. This book is such an amazing follow up to the first two beautiful novels, Carnelian (Book 1) and Chrysophrase (Book 2). Reviewing a book in a series can sometimes be hard, especially later in the series – because I just don't want to give away any plot lines! I will say that the fluidity of this series is astonishing and the imagery will have your mind reeling about the places and times that the characters meet. I've always been semi-interested in history, but these novels pique my interest to a whole new level. The fact that you can picture in your mind how things used to be, compared to what they are today is something you'll never forget. For instance, being able to go back in time and see something before it came to the ruins that it is presently is so thought provoking.

               I absolutely loved this book and of course, I devoured it like all of BK's other masterpieces. This novel definitely packed quite a few punches and left my mind wandering in 20 different directions about theories that I think may come true. I adored the fact that there was a new character introduced to the story named Kye, and he is amazing in every aspect. There is so many things that I want to be able to say about Aventurine, but I just can't because I'm so completely against spoilers. I've definitely got some hunches on things though, and can't wait to see how they pan out. I really do urge you to read this series, its excellence is out of this world, and if I could buy everyone I know a copy just so that I could talk about B. Kristin McMichael's stories with, I totally would. If you're willing to give a new (to you) author a chance, I HIGHLY recommend this one. Hands down, one of the best writers I've read in a long time. All her books are a must read, and once you read them – come talk to me!!!

B. Kristin McMichaelOriginally from Wisconsin, B. Kristin currently resides in Ohio with her husband, two small children, and three cats. When not doing the mom thing of chasing kids, baking cookies, and playing outside, she is using her PhD in biology as a scientist. In her free time she is currently hard at work on multiple novels. Every day is a new writing adventure. She is a fan of all YA/NA fantasy and science fiction.
