Blurb:

Fame.

Money.

Glory.

These were all the things that you would expect from being famous. The bait that the producers of the industry would tempt you with to get you on their side.

What they don’t tell you though are all the inner tragedies that come along just as quickly. They don’t tell you about the heartache that occurs when you realize that this wasn’t what you wanted at all.

They don’t tell you about the pressure that’s always on the verge of crushing you when you’re forced to do everything that the public demands for and not what you truly desire.

They don’t tell you about the self hatred that would soon take over your entire being at the thought that you will never be good enough.

No – they don’t tell you these things at all.

But, Lilith Rose will.

When Lilith Rose, lead singer to one of the most famous rock bands around gets tired of all the lies and secrets that comes with being famous.

She decides that it’s time for all of it to stop and ends up revealing everything on a Facebook live stream.

The result…

“Part of me wants to die tonight, part of me wants it to be an accident, and part of me wants someone to notice and save me.” – Lilith Rose.

Excerpt:

Time.

In the beginning, that was all there was. Seconds, minutes, hours pressed together, forming a mask of illusion that could never be dropped. A wall of steel grew around their hearts, one that couldn’t be broken. The United Misfits image could never be distorted.

It was wrong. It wasn’t right. No matter what her heart told her, it was wrong. Every flutter that skated through her stomach. His every skipped heartbeat, meant nothing. She was nothing. He was nothing. They were nothing.

It had been said many times, by many different people, the most broken person in the world could hide behind a perfected smile and a fake laugh. This could carry out a person’s persona, something that never even existed to begin with. That would never exist. Laughter and smiles filled with fake truths and real lies could hide what that person wanted to show, to tell, the truth.

In the end, she wanted to break free, but chains restrained her, blocking each and every move before she could make a single one, turning her into a prisoner. A captive in her own life.

Those chains squeezed tighter and tighter, never loosening their grip. They choked her from the inside, wrapping her tighter with every deceitful accusation and fake persona they put in her life. Deadly thoughts clouded her vision and stomped through her mind. Both of their minds.

Their hearts were noosed, yanked in every which direction. Like a snake. Until it all stopped. Until they both stopped fighting.

And when the fight dissipated, she could no longer turn away from the deceitful ways that they had so graciously bestowed on her.

Breaking the rules isn’t an option for photographer Kallie Gregory. Her career depends on it…

The only thing Kallie ever wanted to do was take photos. She’s been working with the industry’s most popular male models and building a name for herself. Proclaimed an up and coming sensation, Kallie knows she has to set professional boundaries with her clients. No dating the models. No exceptions. Following the rules has never been a problem, until she met Jax.

Jax Burke always gets what he wants, and that includes Kallie…

Jax is one of the most recognizable and sought-after male models on the market. When he makes a pass at the beautiful photographer at his latest shoot, she shuts him down. Despite their chemistry on and off the set, Kallie makes it clear they will never be anything more than friends. She’s witnessed the effects of what dating a model can do to a photographer’s career, and she’s worked too hard to ruin it now.

Fighting temptation was easier before her heart got involved…

Jax is happy to abide by Kallie’s friendship guidelines. He isn’t looking for a quick fling that will make the media rounds. He likes her, and with enough time he knows he can change her mind about all her rules.

Kallie still has her doubts, but Jax is willing to risk it all for love. He’s determined to convince her to finally take a chance on the life waiting for her out from…

SALE! 99 CENTS!

Hey bloggerverse! My book is on Sale now through Monday the 22nd for only 99 cents. If you like Paranormal books, this might be right up your alley. Here’s a little bit about Above the Flames!

Jasmine’s sixteenth birthday was the worst ever…

All in one day, her dad died, she met a demon, and her mother rejected her existence forever. After all, the demon who killed her dad was there to take her, and all because of her stupid powers—the ability to conjure blue flames.

Two years later, she’s happy. But happy never lasts…

After moving to Idaho to live with her grandparents, Jasmine has a new life. Almost nobody knows about her powers, and she’s just a normal teenager with normal problems. Then comes her eighteenth birthday—and the earthquake that changes her world forever.

An army of demons rise from Hell. And Jasmine is right in the middle of the battle…

When demons claw their way to Earth, Jasmine is surrounded by hundreds of fire-eyed beasts. Worse, she is captured by a big-shot demon named Bael. He’s a tricky foe with a chip on his shoulder—and the desire to make Jasmine use her powers for evil.

Amon is a fallen angel with an attitude—and everything to lose.

Successfully escaping the underworld undetected, Amon is on a quest to regain God’s grace when he rescues Jasmine from the clutches of a particularly nasty demon he knows all too well. The attraction between him and the not-entirely-human captive is instantaneous. Heavenly sparks fly, but ideas of romance will have to wait. First they have to stop the demon race from wiping out the mortal realm. Humanity’s fate rests in their hands.

Can two fallen angels rise above the flames to ensure a future for mankind? Or will Jasmine and Amon’s souls be bound together—in hell?

Review of Cursed by Nykki Mills

I was given a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Holy cow! I loved this book! So much, in fact, that I stayed up until 3AM to finish it. It was absolutely amazing! I can’t recommend this book enough to all of you out there who like a great, fast-paced, full of action and a little taste of horror read. Did I say it was amazing…because I can’t remember:)

Let me tell you why I loved it.

Gina-Okay, so this girl drove me bonkers, but definitely in a good way. I like when I go on a ride with the character and I definitely felt like I did that with Gina. She was so hell bent on accepting every bad thing in her life as normal that I felt horrible for all of the things she put herself through because of it. Absolutely amazing writing going on with this character. I felt what she felt and I was really rooting for her to just stop torturing herself because I could see how good of a person she actually was. The front she put on was just that.

Ben-A man with mystery. The truth is, Ben is just as tortured as Gina, he just hides it extremely well. It’s awesome though that he knows about this world and their chemistry is on fire! I found myself flipping through the pages to see if they ever gave in and took the plunge for that kiss I wanted them to have so badly. Smouldering moments between Ben and Gina for sure.

I hated Trent. All he was to me was an enabler.

Chance-He redeemed himself in my eyes and became a pretty good friend. Pretty cool although he was a pretty secondary character and we didn’t see a lot of him.

As for the lady in red…I couldn’t figure her out the whole story. I think Mills wrote her character extremely well to add a layer of mystery and kept me guessing the whole time. There were surprises along the way and I loved the story unfolding before my eyes.

The other bad guys were great too. Bad, jerky and extremely hateable…which I know isn’t a word but it just fits.

If you like YA Paranormal, ghosts and the whole scary story appeal, you will loved Cursed. I know I did. Just make sure you keep a light on when you read it.

If you haven’t got this already, I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next in the series!

So, definitely check out this book. It’s available today, August 2nd, On Amazon. Here’s the link: http://amzn.to/2aKCW5V

Review of Her Black Wings by AJ Norris

This book was great! Norris did a fantastic job pulling me in to this complicated world and I loved her descriptions!

Amalya was a very complex character. So many bad things had happened to her in her life and then she meets Elliott, who is in a bad place himself. Even through everything Amalya had endured she still had enough good in her to change things around her. Even though she hadn’t had the courage to do that in life, she does in death.

I just think that Elliott and Amalya are my new favorite book couple. I loved when they were together, how they communicated with each other. Sure, there were some issues but what relationship doesn’t have those? I think Norris did a great job making things believable.

I can’t wait for the next installment and would definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves angel and demon books!
