Review: Conceit (7 Deadly Seals)

3:26 PM 0 Comments


Conceit (Se7en Deadly SEALs #1) by Alana Albertson

Published March 2020

Se7en deadly Navy SEALs bound to secrecy about a party that ended in tragedy.

Six months my innocent brother Joaquín has spent in jail for a murder.

Five hours a day I've trained to go undercover to learn the truth.

Four plastic surgeries to transform into a pinup to gain access to their world.

Three shots of tequila I down before I take off my clothes to dance for the SEALs.

Two years since I'd left my soul mate Grant, the only man who can help me now.

One dead stripper found strangled and drugged.

Zero room for error. I'm Joaquín's only hope for freedom. No sin is too depraved, no challenge is too great. Even if it means destroying my soul.



Ok I'll be honest with you, there was a point I thought to abandon this one but then it picked my interest. (That and I can't leave books half way...)

Her brother is accused of murder and this girl takes "I'll do anything for my brother" to a whole new level. 

She's willing to change her whole life and appearence to get to the botton of that mistery. Her changes may seem like too much but you can see the logic behind it, she IS dealing with SEALs and especial ops people. 

I really enjoyed seeing her perspective on things. What she's willing to sacrifice and who she's facing against with. Also, you get that she's been protected her whole life and now we get to see a new face, a stronger and determined new person. 

This was a short novella and Left you hanging and wanting for more. There are a lot of questions: What happened to make her break up with her ex? Whose the killer? Why won't his team mates help him? 

And I'm really intrigued by her new life undercover.

Review: Called by the bear

3:21 PM 0 Comments


Called by The Bear by V. Vaughn

*This is a serial. The installments are not novel length.*


I’m Carly Cutler and my dreams predict the future. So why am I dreaming about a sexy beast of a guy, a bear, and a paw print design? I don’t know. A force I can’t fight wants me to find out, and I’m leaving the only life I’ve ever known. With a fresh tattoo of a bear paw and my best friend by my side, I’m on a quest to find a man I’ve never met.

Sierra Steele here, and ready for adventure – We’ve been chosen. The moment I saw Carly’s first tattoo, I felt the undeniable attraction of the guy I’ve been dreaming about. My cautious friend can’t resist the pull either, and we’re off to the mountains to get answers. Something’s calling us, and I’m certain the hunky men are our exciting destiny. They’ll keep us safe from the bear, right? 





My thoughts... 

She never felt like she belonged. Being bigger than most also put a damper in her but when she starts dreaming about a hit guy and leaving her life behind, she feels like she has no other choice than leave. Luckily, her friend has the same dreams and goes with her. 

I was hesitant at first, I felt like there was too much of her tome still in California. The journey was more exciting. Meeting the other girls along the way but still not knowing what was calling them to leave. 

I really enjoyed the storyline in the book. The clan calling the girls and the conflict among the bears was a ver exciting element to add. However, the connection among the characters felt too rushed. Yes, they are soul mates and I know they have to feel close to each other but It felt too physical and I didn't see the emotional connection between the two main characters at first. 

I think the only ones who bother to start getting to know each other first were (bad one and other girl). And we still have to see were that goes. 


Her best friend relationship was weird too... see for spoilers

(She was supposed to be someone's soul mate, jumps right into it and then it turns out they aren't! See the problem with the connections, I feel like they had to somehow feel a bit off?)

Like I said, I love the idea of the plot. But at the same time the book has to many pairs and overlapping. I feel like this should have been a shorter book focusing on one pair at the time while moving the plot forward so it could be easier for the reader.

I still enjoyed this very much and I am looking forward to see what happens with the clans.

Meet the Authors:

Mignon Mykel 

Mignon Mykel, author of reader-favorite Prescott Family, loves books, dreaming, and espresso. When not writing, you can find her reading, hiking, or hanging out with her adorable nanny boy-os.

Her books have been likened to “real life” and much like real life, sometimes the biggest hurdle in a relationship is one’s self. Outside forces are not always applicable in the struggle toward HEA. She loves to read books in large worlds, where many books down the road, you get a glimpse at a former favorite couple. It is because of that, that every Mignon Mykel title you read, is connected to any other title in some shape or form. However, everything—with the exception of the Playmaker Duet—is a complete standalone.

Connect with Mignon Mykel: https://mignonmykel.com/ 


Aubree Valentine 

Aubree Valentine began her book world career back in 2016 as a virtual assistant for a friend/author and as a book blogger. While working with authors, PR companies and fellow bloggers, she fell even more in love with the Indie community and decided to launch her own small scale PR company where she continued to hone her skills as a virtual assistant to several authors and studied the ins and outs of what it takes to help succeed in the industry. When she's not working with her partner in crime, you can find her penning fun and flirty stories about all of her imaginary and very smexy alphas. This includes her current and most popular series, Too Hot To Handle.

Aubree has a degree in sarcasm and resides in Pennsylvania. She enjoys reading, chasing after her twins and her three furbabies, cuddling with her husband, and coming up with new project ideas that often involve power tools. She's usually always online via Facebook or Instagram @authoraubreevalentine.

Jennifer Bonds

Jennifer Bonds writes sizzling contemporary romance with sassy heroines, sexy heroes, and a whole lot of mischief. She’s a sucker for enemies-to-lovers stories, laugh out loud banter, and over the top grand gestures.

While she’d like to tell you she’s always loved reading, it just wouldn’t be true. In second grade her mom had to bribe her to read (and learn multiplication tables), but by the time she reached middle school she was hopelessly addicted to all things fiction. Amazingly, it didn’t help her popularity level, but did inspire her to write her first book, which (thankfully) is buried in the basement where it will never see the light of day.

Ten years of professional insanity and one MBA later, Jennifer decided to take a chance and pursue her dream of writing. Because, honestly, what could be better than spending your days reading and writing swoonworthy romance?

She also writes YA paranormal romance as J.J. Bonds.

Jennifer lives in Pennsylvania, where her overactive imagination and weakness for reality TV keep life interesting. She’s lucky enough to live with her own real life hero, two adorable (and sometimes crazy) children, and one rambunctious K9. Loves Buffy, Mexican food, the Winchester brothers, and all things zombie. Sings off-key.

Brooke O’Brien

Brooke O'Brien is the author of the Heart's Compass series, the Tattered Heart duet, and her newest release, BRIX, a stepbrother/bully romance.

Growing up Brooke always had a love of writing; she started out writing poetry when she was young and began journaling her thoughts as she grew older. Diving headfirst into a good book has always been therapeutic for her. Now her two passions have collided.

Brooke believes you can cure any bad day with chocolate or by going on a long drive with the windows down and the music turned up! She's found that's when her characters talk to her the most! If she's not reading or writing, you'll probably find her spending time with her family and friends, watching Hawkeye football or NBA basketball, going to the movies, or collecting signed paperbacks.


She loves to interact with readers! Keep in touch with Brooke by following her on Social Media and join her exclusive Reader Group.

Tina Gallagher

Tina Gallagher wears many hats. She’s a wife, mother, author, and editor…and that doesn’t even include her day job.

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Tina worked a spectrum of jobs ranging from baking and cake decorating to marketing and project management. But her true passion is writing. In between her day job and spending time with her family, she manages to fit in time to write the romance novels she loves so much.

Tina lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her husband and two children.

Victoria Pinder

USA Today Bestselling Author, Victoria Pinder grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun though she left that for a while to live in New Orleans, Denver and now Pittsburgh. She started single but the husband and then children joined in on the fun. She’s worked in engineering, then lawyer, then teacher, and finally novelist. She refused to one day turn 50 and realize she had nothing but her career and hours at a desk.

During all this time and travel, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s expectations, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.

She’s always been amazing, adventurous and assured. It’s what gets her through the day.

Promo: Right With Me

Forever Write PR and Stacey Lewis proudly present to you the release of Right with Me (A With Me In Seattle Universe Novel).

Title: Right With Me (A With Me In Seattle Universe Novel)
Author: Stacey Lewis
Publisher: Lady Boss Press
Release Date: 6/22/2020



Blurb:

Being a single mom by the time Hailey Lucas turned thirty wasn’t one of her life goals. In fact, the only good thing she can find about it is being able to finally follow her dreams instead of his.

Getting involved with another man isn’t in any of her plans either, especially not one with baggage of his own in the form of an ex-wife from h*ll. One he wasn’t upfront with her about the first time they met and she wasn’t yet an ex.

Now Mitchell Anderson wants another chance, but the only thing he has going for him are his two adorable kiddos and the fact that his kisses turn Hailey to mush.

Is that enough to build a relationship on? He wants to show her being with him is the right choice, but first she has to forgive him for the secrets he kept before.


About the Author:
Stacey is the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author of the Nashville Secrets series and the Nashville U series.

She's also the single mom of three amazingly crazy boys and since she's a transplanted Yankee, considers herself a big city girl living in a small town. Because she can't live in the cities she loves - Nashville, New York, Chicago - she writes about people who do instead. When she isn't writing, you can usually find her curled up with a sexy book, or more accurately, scrolling through Tumblr. She also isn't afraid to admit her favorite addictions: Tumblr GIF's, social media, Spotify, Dr. Pepper, and of course, dirty books. Hunky heroes with control issues and strong heroines who stand up to them are her weakness. She loves to talk books - not just her own - with anyone, so send her a message!

Exclusive Excerpt

Copyright 2020 @ L.R. Jackson

I stop in my tracks as I hear the front door slam. This is it. The plan is in motion. My heart beats faster, and my palms become sweaty as I try my best to remain calm in the denim jean skirt and midriff top that Monroe forced me to change into. I’m sure this is regular attire for her, but it isn’t something I would wear, and I feel very exposed at the moment. Jasen walks in with his briefcase, and immediately, my lungs stop working. He drops the briefcase down in front of him and watches me with the sexiest dark brown eyes I’ve ever seen. This is not the teenaged Jasen I remember. He’s bigger. Sexier. His muscles strain against the blue collared shirt he’s wearing. His sleeves are rolled up, revealing thick biceps. He looks like walking lust and temptation. He turns and opens a cabinet. “How was Philly?” “Good,” I answer as my body heats from nervousness. And other things. He closes the cabinet and turns around to face me. He narrows his eyes as he tears the wrapper off the granola bar in his hand. “You’re awfully quiet. Is something wrong?” he asks before taking a bite. “No, everything’s fine,” I reply. “How’s your sister?” “She’s doing great.” “So, you two are good? You’re speaking again now?” “Yup.” “Good, now you can stop talking about how much you hate her.” “What?” I ask softly. I’m not sure if I heard him correctly; did he just say that Monroe hated me? He stops chewing. “Oh, come on, you say it all the time, Monroe. How Morgan was the favorite, and how Grandma Rose always defended her no matter how wrong she was.” So, I had heard him correctly. I’m instantly angered. Monroe hated me. She betrayed me, so I should be the one hating her, not the other way around. Had I known about this sooner, I would have never agreed to help her. I snap out of it and answer his question. “We worked out our differences. Everything is good now.” He takes the last bite as he watches me. He swallows and tosses the wrapper in the nearby trash bin as he walks closer. My body stiffens when he stops right in front of me. Uh-oh! He’s entirely too close. His lips are mere inches from mine, and I can smell the mixture of peanut butter and chocolate on his breath. I can also smell his cologne. And it’s intoxicating. He places his hand around my waist and gently pulls me to him. “Did you think about my suggestion? Are you willing to try?” he asks. “Yes,” I answer as my eyes fixate on his. “So, you’ll go?” he continues. “Yes,” I answer again, mesmerized by his baritone voice. “Good. I think it will be good for us,” he responds. He leans in and kisses me, rendering me powerless. My eyes close and my mouth opens as I allow his tongue to enter. Sparks ignite every nerve ending. His hands make their way under my skirt, and he tugs at my thong, pulling it down. It fall to my ankles, and he lifts me up and on top of the countertop. I’m lost in the moment. It’s been so long since I’ve touched a man, and my body is all too welcoming of Jasen’s hands. My skirt is lifted around my waist, his fingers are between my legs, and he’s kissing my neck softly. “I’ve missed touching you. I want you so bad, Monroe… right here, right now.” My eyes fly open at the mention of my sister’s name, and I clasp my legs together just as his finger reaches my clit. “What’s wrong?” he asks. “I can’t,” I answer.
