Fearless Blog Tour Banner

From Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a powerful new story of love, hope and redemption, of finding light in the darkest places.

Fearless, an all-new emotional standalone by Carly Phillips is now LIVE!


Fall in love with the Wards…
Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn't get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer.
Except Halley Ward isn't just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane's usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don't expect more than he's willing to give.
Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he's hooked. She says she's not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas.
Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they've made. Then it's Halley's turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she's finally coming to believe she deserves


Now…what do you say to some Italian ices? Ever been to Hank’s?”

She shook her head. “I’ve passed it but there’s always been a ridiculous crowd of people out front.”

“Well, it’s worth the wait. Feel like going on the way home?”

She nodded. “If you can keep me occupied while we wait, then I don’t mind.”

He laughed. “I think I like that challenge.”

When they arrived at Hank’s, an outdoor ice cream and Italian ices stand, they discovered a short line. Not enough for him to have to entertain her, and before they knew it, they were ordering.

Because they also had ice cream, Halley changed her mind when it came to ordering and asked for vanilla ice cream with hot fudge topping. Kane got a red Italian ice.

They took their desserts and walked over to a short brick wall and hopped up, sitting side by side, legs swinging as they ate.

He finished his first. “Good?” he asked, putting his cup down beside him.

She glanced over, laughing. “Your tongue is red.”

He stuck it out at her and grinned.

“Want some of mine?” She held out the spoon of vanilla and chocolate mixed.

“No, doesn’t exactly mix with my cherry.” He paused, as if thinking of something. “Unless…”

“Hmm?” She raised an eyebrow.

“Unless I’m kissing you.” And before she could react, he leaned over and swept his tongue over her lips and into her mouth, devouring her quickly but thoroughly.

She moaned into him, leaning in close, savoring the warm cherry flavor he brought to her dessert.

Before she was ready, he lifted his head and met her gaze, his eyes dark and hungry. “Now that is how to eat an ice cream.”

We’ve reached the conclusion of the Voyeur series by Elena M. Reyes and N. Isabelle Blanco. I almost can’t believe this is actually over. Here we are 5 books in with Freed. I tell ya, Reyes and Blanco have written a crazy, INSANE series… there are times I questioned myself. Freed continues on with what I have come to expect from this two authors… me over here shaking my head and wondering if they are real! My only issue is that I wanted more of an ending… more closure. You know? Like an epilogue or something more! I just felt like I needed a bit more from that ending. However, these writers continue to write these insane scenes that make you question your own sanity.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.



I count the seconds in my head within the darkness. On sixty-four, the lights come back on.
All the calmness disappears in an instant. 
“Noah?” Ivy gasps, standing less than fifteen feet from me, where the mirror was.
I’m so shocked by the sight of her, I can’t reply. My eyes trail over her, over how they’ve dressed her. In a mini-skirt version of a royal-blue, old-fashioned ball gown, the corset top displaying those fucking beautiful tits I love. The skirt only reaches mid-thigh, and of course, they paired the outfit off with black thigh-highs and sky-high heels in the same color as that gown.
On her head, a headpiece made out of royal-blue and black feathers.
Her eyes glow in the strategically-placed lighting, a mixture of hunger, intent, and urgency that confused my addled mind. 
“Noah,” she whispers again, eyes trailing my face and the creature they drew upon it. Or is she seeing deep into the pit of me, where the evil has already sunk deep?
Holy shite, they’ve done her up like an exquisite, exotic sex doll. Played up every single asset she has all with the goal of tempting whoever lays eyes on her.
Every twisted bastard and bitch that wants to fuck her before they kill her.

TEASER: THE REAL by Kate Stewart

Check out this teaser for THE REAL by Kate Stewart! Don't forget to add it to your TBR!


Contemporary Romance
Stand Alone


They say it happens when you least expect it.

It did for me.

It started the moment I saw the simple message pop up on my computer screen:

Cameron’s Mac: Hi.

And when I met the eyes of the gorgeous man messaging me from across the coffee shop, I never thought my reply would lead to the most intense, sexual, and passionate relationship of my life.

We both agreed to check our bags at the door and put our future hopes and aspirations on the table.

It worked.

I fell in love with his no holds barred attitude, sexy smirk, and undeniably good heart . . . and for a while we forgot about our baggage. We happily tripped over it to get to the other, neither of us willing to show the contents of our pasts in the off chance it could ruin us.

We built our love on a foundation of gray.

It was life in black and white that threatened to tear us apart.

About the Author:

RELEASE DAY: Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan

Author: Kennedy Ryan
Genre: Basketball Romance
Release Date: March 22, 2018
Facebook Party:
Read the ENTIRE first chapter here →
"This story was brutal truth wrapped in hope, courage and unflinching love. It's a must read. It's a STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don't hold your breath, this story will steal it from you." - J. Sterling, NYT Bestselling Author


Think you know what it's like being a baller's girl?
You don't.
My fairy tale is upside down.
A happily never after.
I kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud.
I was a fool, and his love - fool's gold.
Now there's a new player in the game, August West.
One of the NBA's brightest stars.
Fine. Forbidden.
He wants me. I want him.
But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won't let me go.

*Author's Note: There are aspects of this story that may be sensitive for some readers.

Sometimes I just want to write a review and leave it with one single word… WOW! Kennedy Ryan has knocked my sox off. When you sit down with a Ryan book you know that you are getting more than just a story, just a book… you are experiencing her words… you are living in that world that Ryan created. So based on that, all I want to tell you is that Kennedy Ryan has completely outdone herself in Long Shot. I’m not a huge fan of sport romances but this is soooo much more than that.

I love how when Kennedy Ryan tells a story, she goes completely raw and doesn’t mess around. Long Shot feels incredibly true and incredibly relatable. I see so many women when I read this story. Like I said, this is more than a sports romance. This is a story about one woman, Iris, finding her strength and determination to not only survive, but to flourish. 

I can’t recommend this book enough! Ryan’s writing in so fluid and hits you strait in the heart. Ryan opens up your mind and makes you think by expanding your mind. August and Iris share a sizzling hot attraction. But they share more than an attraction, there’s something deeper and meaningful there. I loved the… mystical powers interwoven into this story. It was different and just fascinating. The secondary characters were just unbelievable. I adored them! They were a fantastic support system. In that matter, all Ryan’s characters are so compelling, so deep.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”
            I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.
            “Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.
I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.
And I do.
I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.
He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.
Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.
