Amazon Buy Link https://amzn.to/2OMWZRG

 

This book had me belly aching laughing in the beginning during a particular scene. and when I was all comfy and snug and happy as a bug in a rug reading this book, the author rips the rug out from under me and sends my heart rolling across the floor!

“Things were so much easier in the dark”

How do you write a raving review without spoilers yet convey Why this book…why this series is so amazing!?!

Be prepared to have your socks knocked off…hold on tight, cuz you’re in for one helluva ride!

This book will shatter your heart, have you hoping, have your heart soaring, make you cry, and leave you with one helluva  book hangover! And EVERY bit worth it!

This is a very dark series….and there are triggers galore.
I hope people read this series…i hope people can find hope and inspiration from the author’s charachters…from the words that effortlessly flow off the pages and squeeze your heart like a vice.

They say “things that don’t break you…will make you stronger” but sometimes we shatter into itty bitty pieces…we crawl within ourselves and hide.
We try to escape the pain.

Can someone who shatters be put back together?

If they can…will they ever be the same?

Can love be enough to save somebody?

READ THE BOOK!

This is a gut wrenching read, trigger laden, darkie dark dark….and i would highly suggest taking the warning seriously. HOWEVER…if you decide to read this book…and I HOPE HOPE you do!!!! May you find the light and keep on reading…cuz this series is absolutely amazing!

Take deep breaths
Grab some kleenex
Grab a blanket…cuz sometimes we all need a security blanket ❤


Complicated Hearts (Complicated Hearts Duet, #1)Complicated Hearts by Ashley Jade

Amazon Buy Link https://amzn.to/2xt5mv7

Complicated Hearts had me hook line and sinker! Ashley Jade dove into m/m m/m/f and nailed it! Her mastery at story telling takes you on a journey of love, heartbreak, and picking up the pieces even if it scares you to death. But what happens when all the pieces get jumbled together in one lump sum? You get Complicated Hearts! If you love that “punch in the gut” feeling, you’re gonna love reading this! A tangled web woven around different lives and hearts, I can’t wait to read book 2! It’s about to get real!


SparrowSparrow by L.J. Shen

Amazon Buy Link https://amzn.to/2NqYgl9

I f’ing LOVE Sparrow! i have read Vicious and Defy by L.J Shen, and am anxiously awaiting Ruckus’s release, i love the Hot Holes! But i had never read Sparrow and was lucky enough to win an e-copy through a contest
Sparrow is a hate to love mafia romance. There is murder, kidnapping, betrayal, cheating, secrets, love, hot buildup to hot sex scenes, a twist i didn’t see coming, and a kill list.
Sparrow is a woman after my own heart. Feisty, mouthy, tomboy, and an independent redhead. Kidnapped by the well-known “Fixer”, son of a dead mobster and forced to marry him. Tho they grew up in the same neighborhood, he is 10 years older than her. He is a well known womanizer and had never even so much looked her way, now…now Sparrow is marrying him, and she doesn’t know why…and Troy is not about to clue her in. She may have to marry him, but she doesn’t have to like it, or make it easy! Tho she is scared of him and the rumors surrounding him, she shows her disdain by being mouthy and calling him on his sh$t. Troy is intrigued, her hard life (mother left her and her father, and her father worked for Cillian, Troys father and is an alcoholic) and neighborhood made her feisty, and stronger than Troy originally gives her credit for. The attraction grows, on both ends, but sooo many secrets, no trust, and the pretty boy, married, Brock that works for her husband…so nice and seems concerned about her, where Sparrow’s new husband is hot, he’s still “dangerous” according to gossip, and an asshole, yet, tho she may hate her husband, her body reacts traitorous towards him. Can they build a life on their “arrangement”? what will happen when ALL the secrets come to light? can u forgive betrayal? Leigh had me glued to the recliner and on the edge of my seat as the story of Sparrow and Troy unfolded. The characters are well-developed and the story flows like a river into the falls towards the end leaving you with a pounding heartbeat and breathless in anticipation as the story reaches its climax. a MUST read by L.J Shen!

Reds Chit Chat with Zane Michaelson

I began writing in August 2017.’Thou Shalt Not Love’ is my favourite up to now…..

5171QO8ZuoLZane Michaelson stopped by to chat with us today and I am really excited to see what he has to share. 

I have followed  Zane Michaelson since he released his first book in October 2017. His debut book, She Loves to Watch Me Play, is a retelling of his life at a time which was not all hearts and flowers. Each book after this one made up this chapter, There Are Two Sides To Every Story. This final book includes his wife’s (Jenna Michaelson) side of  their story. It completes the puzzle perfectly.

Zane Michaelson’s new release, Cammie: By Invitation Only book 1 was a secret release to tease his readers while he takes a bit of a break. He has been going non-stop since he starting publishing his books almost a year ago. I think he has earned some time off.  The Redheads Review Squad all agree that Cammie is a must read and great start to this new series.  Links to purchase Cammie are below the interview. 

Click on the links below to read the full review.

Red: Zane Michaelson continues to blow me away with his original stories and his writing style.

Kitti Kat: This story drew me in…it is blistering and panty melting!

Foxy Lady 369: I love this book! It’s one of those books that leaves you on the edge of your seat and the intensity of wondering what will happen next.

 

The Interview:  Don’t mind all of the fangirl moments in this interview. Since I have followed Zane Michaelson for almost a year and devoured all of his books, getting to do an interview with him is a highlight of my blogging. So let’s get started…….


1) When did you being writing? Also, which of your published books is your favorite?
Zane: I began writing in August 2017.’Thou Shalt Not Love’ is my favourite up to now as it was the first work of fiction that I published. It proved I could do it, and the response was amazing!
Red: It has been amazing to be with you since your debut in Oct 2017. 
2) Do you have a favorite character from your books? How do you select the names of your characters?
Zane: I don’t have a favourite character I can tell you about as that book hasn’t been announced yet.
Choosing character names isn’t as easy as people think it would be. I get the names once I build a visual picture in my mind. If I don’t have the name, it’s because I haven’t described the character well enough.
Red: Just so you new readers are warned. Mr.  Michaelson is a big, I mean huge, tease. Like how he snuck in that “book that hasn’t been announced” part? He keeps you on your toes. 
3) What is your favorite part of being a published author?
Zane: I love the fact I have a fantastic company behind me (Junction Publishing / Happy Ever After Publishing). They take care of everything and nothing is decided without me. Down to the editing and the fantastic cover art,  they won’t accept anything but the best. I definitely won the lottery signing with them.
Red: Your covers are amazing and the women go crazy for them. Ok I will admit to having some items with your covers on them. Some coffee mugs, some t-shirts, maybe a charm or 2.  I mean, come on, those men are HOT! Now looking at Cammie I think I need to add to my collection. 
4) Where is the strangest place you had a book or character idea come to you?
Zane: I get ideas in the strangest of places. On the toilet, in the dentist, driving, and people watching (Or as my wife says, being nosey). But mainly, my ideas come when listening to music. A song title can give me an idea for a book, and the characters come from something as simple as that.
Red: I know you like to share your music with your readers in Zane’s Hangout on Facebook. I spend time in there on occasion. If you would like to join us here is the link:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/294699031009501/
5) How long on average does it take you to write a book?
Zane: My first novella ‘She Loves to Watch Me Play’ took me just under two days to write. I’m not sure if that is a good or bad thing, but the response has been fantastic. 
Red: I am not surprised to hear you wrote that so quickly. It felt like an outpouring of your heart as I read. Oh, I am supposed to be an unbiased journalist here. Well I blew that one but I am who I am. I fangirl often. 
6) Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
Zane: I don’t tend to read them, but people do point both the good and bad out to me, so I have to take notice. Saying that, I take them for what they are – people’s opinions. I am just happy people have read my work. You can’t please everyone, and sometimes bad reviews tend to draw more people to your work. Curiosity killed the cat so to speak!
7) Which of your books do you wish more readers were aware of?
Zane: ‘There are Two Sides to Every Story’, which is my true story, and co-written with my wife, Jenna.
Red: This was the perfect way to close the door on this chapter of your writing and move into the new writing you are doing now. Cammie is a great example of your new work. 
8) What do you do what you suffer from writer’s block?
Zane: I don’t suffer from it thankfully, and I think the reason is my fondness for working on multiple manuscripts – I never get bored of the same thing.
Red: I bet you have a lot of ideas floating around that you can’t wait to get on paper. I guess that saying doesn’t really work anymore. I mean I am typing, not writing on paper. Oh well, moving along.
9) Did you have a mentor when you started?
Zane: No. I was all alone in a world I knew nothing of. My friends Gloria and Carol were a great help at the start and without their guidance, I would have made so many mistakes.
Red: I have been fortunate to meet both of these ladies and I agree they are fabulous. Plus Gloria is great at keeping you in line, or at least she tries. 
10)  Advice for aspiring authors?
Zane: Write what you know! Get a fantastic editor and take care with your covers.
Sounds good to me!
Red: Great editor, check. Beg you to help with covers, check and check. 
11)  What’s next for you?
Zane: I have so many new releases planned for the rest of 2018, and right up to 2020. Keep your eyes on Zane’s Hangout as everything is announced there first! There is so much more to come from me, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Red: Here is that link again to Zane’s Hangout https://www.facebook.com/groups/294699031009501/

12) Tell us something fun. Anything that can make us smile or giggle. Life is too short, lets spread some smiles around. 

Zane: I hate anything that scurries about; mice, rats, spiders, oh and birds too. Their feet/claws terrify me and the thought of them touching my bare skin is my worst nightmare. I think I would pass out/wail/have a heart attack, if it ever happened! (Saying my prayers now!)
Red: Now that is something new to me. So camping in a tent would not be on your favorite vacation activities list . Got it. 
13) Anything else you would like to share?
Zane: I think I shared more than enough in the ‘I Know What You’re Doing’ series! Some of my readers are still recovering.

Thank you for being here and sharing with us today Zane. You know I have been a loyal reader of yours from the beginning. I am anxiously waiting for Zander, book 2 in your By Invitation Only Series. I have Angel of Mine pre-ordered. 

Thanks for taking the time to chat with me .

~Red xoxo

❤ Synopsis: ❤

Despite having had a rough life, Seth has a big heart. After spending nearly ten years sleeping rough on the streets of New York, he’s managed to get himself freelance work and a place to live. But his new found security is about to be torn apart, as the horrors of his past come back to haunt him in the worst possible way.

Dante was sent to watch over a young Seth when his mother died. As an angel, he had many rules to follow. The most important of which was to never fall in love—especially when it involves a human who is your charge. For the last ten years, Dante has kept his feelings for Seth hidden. That is until the night Seth’s past catches up with him.

When Seth is murdered, their destinies are changed forever. Feelings and emotions come to the surface, but will the rules that govern the afterlife keep Dante and Seth apart for eternity, or will they be able to find their happily ever after together?

HOPE . . . because that’s all there ever is. by James Crow

Working so hard, and single-handedly, has left Pete ripped to the nines, a body any girl would pant for. But Pete isn’t interested in girls or sex of any kind. Pete is asexual and proud of it. That is until he uncovers the old pit and its secrets whisper sweet nothings in his ear.

HOPE . . . because that’s all there ever is.

HOPE

The cycle of life; of lives

The cycle of truths; of lies

The cycle of greed; the cycle of need

The cycle of living, of dying and rotting

Mistakes repeated; lessons forgotten

Hope is a constant,

A thread running through

You can claw for its promise,

Claw till you’re old

But only the special ones keep to its hold

Pete Harding isn’t yet thirty, but he’s made a name for himself in the Scottish Borders. Pete has worked hard, his mission to build cabins around the loch – his loch – his skills as a builder, a planner, a Continue reading “HOPE . . . because that’s all there ever is. by James Crow”

When Colin Everett and Anthony Graves suspect the beautiful and shy Sydney Burke is in need of help and discover she’s interested in their alternative lifestyle, they take her under their wings and introduce her to a world she never knew.

Through careful instruction, they open Sydney’s eyes to what love and friendship meanwhile helping her overcome the wounds of her past.

Three hearts become one as scars and tortured pasts are exposed, but can the unconventional love between them survive the threats both from within and from the outside?

Even when she’s returned to them, their relationship has been shattered and the damage has been done. While many of the wounds lie hidden, everything must be exposed for them to heal.

Colin, Anthony, and Sydney have built an unbreakable bond that gave them courage and strength. They’re committed to each other and the life they’ve created for themselves.

Yet, not all roads have room for three. Some can only fit two—and some are meant to be walked alone. It was never about the end…it was always about their journey.

Alone, Lost, and Ours are books four, five, and six of the Everett Gaming Series and follow the continued unique relationship between Colin, Anthony, and Sydney. When dark forces disrupt their relationship, they must struggle to heal the wounds created while finding their way back to each other.

Between The Lines

by Drew Sera

https://amzn.to/2vSJSr3 *right not the price is $2.99 but always check before you bay

This book is my favorite. It’s not as dark as her other books but just as sexy. Plus it include so much about the facebook romance book world. Takeovers, working with a PA, author events. For me this is 5 start plus plus plus recommended.

“She believed she could, so she did.”

My name is Amy Andrews, and those are the words I live by. I write happy-ever-after romance novels and after writing ten romance novels, you’d think I’d know a thing or two about love. But I’ve been chasing my own happy-ever-after for a long time. I seem to have no problem starting my own fairytale, but the ending never comes. My love life isn’t the best-seller that I’ve written, so I decided to change things up and write a dark romance.

While finding my way around and reading books in that genre, I discovered something unexpected. I found a sexy, romantic man who happens to have a soft spot for romances. He’s an alpha male and that type would never have appealed to me before…but it’s amazing what you see when you look between the lines.
