What if a ‘Once in a Lifetime’ could happen twice?

Suffering from a past full of tragedy, Dahlia London's soul has been left completely shattered. Happily ever after is a far cry from reality in her world. But, when she is reconnected with her past, the bonds that form are irrefutable.

When River Wilde, lead singer of The Wilde Ones, comes back into Dahlia’s life, the intensity that fires their relationship combined with underlying feelings that have never died lead her to believe she has met her soulmate.

Struggling with confusion as old connections fade and new ones begin, Dahlia's grief begins to lift--but guilt remains. River wants to be the one to mend all that is torn within her.

But with a past that is never really gone, can their future survive?

Misguided Heart by Amanda Bennett

Misguided Heart Blog Tour Stop 


What if with one choice you could change your whole life in a matter of seconds?

Aston Boyd has always put everything into her work. She has never needed anyone in her life and has survived on her own since she was 18, never looking back. When she gets her dream promotion and becomes the new editor at one of the biggest publishing houses in Arizona, she thinks she has finally figured it all out.

But, when Aston receives an invitation to her first love's wedding, she starts to re-evaluate just how much she has given up for her career.

With a mission in mind to try and win back the one she let go, she never took in to consideration that what she might need, or even want, could be right in front of her.

Will she be willing to put her heart out there to get back the life she could have had, or will she try for something new?

Sloan Holden is the quintessential bad boy trying to cover all that up with his good boy act. He has spent the last 9 years trying to prove to his over bearing father that he can change his ways, and one day run his publishing house. The only thing standing in his way is the slew of fast women and his wild lifestyle, which he just can't seem to give up. He doesn't do relationships and always vowed to stay single forever.

A lot can change when the one person you thought you would never fall for worms their way into your heart, but will the feelings be returned?  


“Nice mouth! Well at least from what I can remember.”

Seriously? Was he seriously flirting with me now? Man this guy is either bi-polar or just really fucking good at getting what he wants.

“Can I help you Mr. Holden?

“Ah, so we're back to Mr. Holden, huh? Can't we just go back to you just calling me by my name and not my fathers?”

“Um, no sorry. I think it's safer to stick with Mr. Holden.”

“Well it probably is but you know, he is a married man.” He winked.

“Ha ha, very funny. How long have you been working on that one?”

“Oh Ms. Boyd I love our little bantering sessions lately. I have to say, they do make my day a little bit easier.”

Don't look at his eyes! Do not look at his eyes. You stupid bitch you're looking at his eyes. His eyes were more of a honey color today and just as mesmerizing as any other day. I wanted to run my tongue along his neck and chest, stopping at his nipples for just a minute and then continue on down his body. I wanted to take his long length into my-

First off I want to say that I enjoyed reading Misguided Heart. I really liked it. 

So getting off in the nitty gritty stuff. Ashton was no meek girl, she kicked ass and didn't let anyone come in her way when she worked so hard in achieving. Then she gets a wedding invitation of her first loves wedding with the girl she never really liked and everything she wanted crashed down on her. Made her feel that everyone is getting what she wanted. She wanted to settle down, get married and have kids but that didn't happen. 

When she first accepted the invitation she went there in the intention to show it doesn't effect her at all, than she saw the wedding she planned. Internal struggle starts. 

Coming to Solan, he is the hot, jerk and a big player. Never cared about anything, took what he wanted and moved on. He started to notice Ashton and than a whole lot. He decided than and there he wanted her and will not stop until after he gets what he has to have. 

They both have their own past demons to fight. Secrets that they kept hidden. Will Ashton goes back to her first love? Will Sloan get what he wants and leave her? Or will he find something he can't seem to let go?  

Overall I liked this story, I don't want to spoil much but I had to stop a few times in reading this because Ashton and Sloan got in my nerves a bit. They knew what they wanted but let everything else get entangle and get messy that you don't know what exactly you wanted. One thing I liked was when they messed up both of them hurt each other back, so it wasn't like there was one really hurt party. They both knew exactly where they are coming from. It is just that they didn't tell the truth and got hurt. Sloan was a little worser than her and Ashton need on really good shake. 

But than again, it is called Misguided. 

I did enjoy the book it's a standalone and has HEA. So I'm happy. ;) 

Want an enjoyable read with a flawed hot jerk and a messy badass girl than grab your copy.

Fight or Flight


Fight or Flight by Jamie Canosa
Release: March 2013

Be smart.
Keep your head down.
And look out for number one.

These are the rules Jay has lived by for the past two years. The rules of surviving life on the streets. But when Em comes bursting into his life, in all of her disastrous glory, the rules go right out the window.

Flee what’s been left behind.
And never look back.

Emerson’s plan was simple. Though, it was easier said than done. The city streets are dangerous and unforgiving to a new arrival. Especially, a seventeen-year-old girl who’s never known anything but life in the suburbs. Sometimes, however, what’s lurking behind those white picket fences can be more frightening than any dark alley.

Both of them made the same decision when life got overwhelming—to run from their demons. Brought together by fate or circumstance, Em and Jay find the kind of love neither of them ever expected. But, when those demons come back to haunt them and their love is on the line, which instincts will they choose to follow this time . . . Fight or Flight? 


Sounds really good!! Can't wait to read it.

Touch Smoke Surprise!!!!!!!!!

THIS SERIES HAS BEEN REVAMPED!!! It's so PRETTY!! Tell me who is excited?!! I am!! You too?

Synopsis Touching Smoke:

For sixteen-year-old FALLON BRAEDEN being on the run had been the easiest part of her life. Packing up and crossing whole cities on a split second decision had been tedious, having no friends and being alone had been painful, but being caught by the truth was something she learned too late was worse.

Fallon is a weapon. She was created to destroy. Keeping her alive, keeping her safe is all Isaiah knows. It’s all that matters, because Fallon is his. She belongs to him. She is a part of his body, his soul, his heart. He will do anything, kill anyone to keep her, even if it means sacrificing himself.

But can Fallon believe the stranger on the motorcycle claiming he was there to die for her? How do you trust when you have no one but the memories of a girl you’ve never met and a tall, dark, gorgeous boy that you feel pulsing deep in your soul? What do you do when you’ve been lied to your whole life? When you’re told you’re normal even though nothing about you is normal? Fallon must learn quickly just what she is before the evil chasing her finally gets what it wants… her blood.

The world depends on her not falling in love, not giving in. But what happens when the temptation becomes too great, when falling is her only option? Can she live knowing the world will burn because his touch is the only thing keeping her alive?

Touch Passion. Touch Power. Touch Smoke!

Synopsis Touching Eternity:

Before Fallon was created to destroy. Before love became the ultimate weapon of destruction. There was Amalie and the horror that started a revolution that tore the fabric of humanity, of everything standing in the balance between power, hope and survival.

Amalie has one wish, one gnawing desire — she wants to die.

She wants to leave this world behind with its pain and darkness. She wants to finally breathe. But Amalie is a prisoner, a disease, not fit for life. She is unwanted, unnatural. She is defective, something useless and broken. Her own mother hadn’t wanted her. Her father hated her. The world shunned her and the only person she had ever loved, truly and with all her heart and soul, couldn’t stand the sight of her, couldn’t stand the thought of ever being with her. She repulsed him. Her insanity disgusted him. He’d forgotten her. He’d left her behind, deserted and abandoned her to a madman hell bent on crushing her, stealing her soul and shattering her will.

But what if she’s finally given hope? A reason to live? Can Amalie finally accept the hand offering so much for so little in return? Can she love again when she has nothing left to give?

Can she finally be free?

Blog Stop: Running on Empty

~ Synopsis ~  
I had the perfect life. 
Beautiful and loving husband. Three gorgeous little girls. 
Successful career.
The only thing missing was the white picket fence. I really wanted that fence. 
Three years ago, I lost that life. I lost my husband. And I lost myself. But, eventually, I found my way through the darkness. I’ve made peace with my new life. I have my girls, and that’s all that matters. They are my world. I have no illusions of ever falling in love again or getting whisked away on a white horse. 
But then he came back into my life. On a freakin’ motorcycle.
There’s no way I’ll let him turn my life completely upside down. Absolutely no way. 
The question is...
How long can I keep pretending that I’m happy with my life being right-side up?

Review ~  

Alex is a single mother of three beautiful little girls. When her girls lost their father, her youngest was just a baby than. After losing her husband Alex was broken, she lost the love of her life and thinking that their is no second chances in life she created little happiness along the way just for her girls. She made sure she did everything she can do to keep her daughters happy, fulfilled their hearts desires and kept herself happy tried so hard to hide her pain from them little did she know that they notice it. Her girls tried as much as they can to keep her happy in their own way. When she realizes that they know she tries VERY hard as much as she can to shield them from it. When she has time on her own she knows that she isn't really happy but only is trying for her daughters, who mean the world to her. 
“You go on, each day, as though you’re happy and at peace with your life. Or at least trying to convince yourself that you are. But you also go on, each day, not really living.”  
 Enter Blake her closest childhood friend he comes into her life again. He comes and things start changing and Alex doesn't like that obviously. He represent a form of help because when he comes is when she needs it. Desperately. She hates help. She hates asking for help or even taking what's offered. Blake being the very patient guy he is and knows her so well (even better than she knows herself) even after all the time they have been apart. So sees right through her. Right through the anger, right through her pushing him away. He shows her to be happy again make her feel things she didn't think she would feel again. She is cherished, taken care of after awhile for once someone is thinking of her and its not Hallow. 
“I feel safe. I feel protected. I feel relief. I feel scared. I feel vulnerable. I feel desire. I feel… Everything.”

The fear of heartbreak and potential loss from hurting her girls with the pain again she rationalizes that she is protecting them when a little part of her knows that she is protecting herself, she is scared so she fights her feelings for Blake. Fights it fiercely. 

This is a heartwarming story if second chances at love again. Will Alex keep fighting and lose the best thing that is happening to her again because of her fear or will she embrace it. Or will she be too late. 

"You’ll never have your happy ending unless you’re brave enough to open the book and start your story.”
Running on Empty is the journey of Alex who had lost everything and was only left with her girls, she lost the sparkle in her eyes, the joy of life and the love for living. It's a journey of finding herself once again. Second chance at that perfect life again. Read it and see for yourself if Alex is brave enough to open the book and start her story. Or not.  

~ My thoughts ~  

I really loved this story. Really much.  It was really well written for a debut. There were its intense moments, where I wanted to cry with Alex and when I wanted to shake her for stop being stupid. I love her daughters to bits. They are so CUTE. So loving and so naughty that was an ingradient Alex needed in her life. They kept her happy that way. While she revolved her life around her kids she stops caring about her own. Thankfully for Hallow, Alex was taken care of in a good way. She just need a spark to ignite in her life. Put it on fire and wake her up from zombie living of life.  It's a beautiful story. I finished it in one sitting. So go on, GET YOURS!  

My verdict?! 4.5 Heartwarming Stars.

Shifting Dreams Cover Reveal!



Another fantabulous cover to reveal! Have you read any books of the fabulous Elizabeth Hunter? No, than get going! I have read her Elemental Mysteries series, AMAZING I tell you.  Something to add to your TBR list! Something tells me this is going to be another unforgettable story to be told.  Scroll down and read the blurb. Than you will be excited as I am!


Somedays Jena Crowe just can’t get a break. Work at her diner never ends, her two boys are bundles of energy, and she’s pretty sure her oldest is about to shift into something furry or feathery. Added to that, changes seem to be coming to the tiny town of Cambio Springs, big changes that not everyone in the isolated town of shapeshifters is thrilled about. 
Caleb Gilbert was looking for change, and the quiet desert town seemed just the ticket for a more peaceful life. He never counted on violence finding him, nor could he have predicted just how crazy his new life would become.

When murder rocks their small community, Caleb and Jena will have to work together. And when the new Chief of Police isn’t put off by any of her usual defenses, Jena may be faced with the most frightening change of all: lowering the defenses around her carefully guarded heart.

Shifting Dreams is the first novel in Cambio Springs, the new paranormal romance series from Elizabeth Hunter, author of the best-selling Elemental Mysteries.
