The Rebels by Brittany Jo James Blog Tour {review & giveaway}




THE REBELS
Author: BRITTANY JO JAMES 
Genre: THRILLER/SUSPENSE/ROMANCE
SYNOPSIS:

Happiness is only reserved for the upper class in the United States of America. 


As a military wife who spends most of her time working for minimum wage, Temper Jensen can attest to that. Finding a spare moment to spend with her husband, Voss, is a luxury she can hardly afford. 

Everything changes when the citizens realize that the president of the country is nothing more than a terrorist bent on total domination. Freedom no longer exists for the citizens of the United States of America and all who dare defy their new rulers are considered rebels of the nation.

Temper knows what she must do, even if it means being separated from Voss in order to save his life. Risking everything, she runs home to her moonshine-brewing anarchist daddy’s home in southwest Arkansas to collect a congregation of rebels to fight back. No one can be trusted, especially Temper’s devious ex-boyfriend who won’t take ‘no’ for an answer.

Can Temper reunite with her husband, keep her wayward family out of trouble, and restore the USA to the nation under God that it was intended to be — or will freedom as we know it be lost forever?

MY 5 STAR REVIEW:
Whew Boy! Brittany Jo James has blew me away AGAIN! I swear this girl keeps getting better with each book. I just want to hug her up and squeeze her cuteness.

This book is so different from what she has written before. This really hits close to home because it could really happen. I mean this is what our country could come to. Scary huh? It has it's historical aspect which James has become famous for as well as the romance but with this book she has thwn in an enormous of suspense and mystery.

This book left me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Which for a girl trying to stop biting her nails was very hard.

I loved this book. So far I have to say this was my favorite of hers by far. I can't wait to see what comes from her next!

True North Finding Home Jake & Livie by Allie Juliette Mousseau {review}


 Synopsis:

An Amazon Best Seller in War and Military Romance! 

**Watch the video for Livie and Jake's original 
love songs by Allie Juliette Mousseau** 

**Buy the mp3s! .99 cents each!** 

"When you're lost... True North" 
The North brothers were hell on wheels-adrenaline-junky bad boys. You’d think they had a death wish – every one of them – but they didn’t really, they just got off on the thrill of pushing every limit, that gravity or any other force told them they couldn’t conquer. What they weren't prepared for were the women that would steal their hearts. 

Book 1 True North Finding Home Livie and Jake 
Livie Morrisey is dreading seeing Jake after his heroic homecoming from Afghanistan. She's been in love with Jake North since she was a little girl, but he was three-and-a-half years older than her and her big brother’s best friend. She was always nothing but the off-limits little sister – until the night before Jake left for the Army, when he'd given her her first kiss. They'd kept in touch for a year, but once Jake was deployed to Afghanistan, he'd cut off contact suddenly and she'd never heard from him again. For the past three years Livie has kept herself distracted with homework and her university studies, but now Jake's going to be up close and personal. And Livie can’t decide if tonight's finally the night to prove to Jake she’s all grown up or the night she should let him go forever. 



My Review:
This book touches on some very real life issues that are difficult for some to read about. I believe it is also hard to accurately depict but I was pleased with how this author came about with dealing with it. This book is a love story but it allowed us into the world of war and how it affects those who fight for our country's freedom on a daily basis. 

I loved this story from the beginning. We are allowed to see the characters before the events that made them who they are today. Before war changed Jake. It was a sweet story that was at times very gritty and also very sexy!! The author allows us to form attachments with all of the family so that we will want to read more about them. Which I do. I can not wait for more of Nate & Jules! Their story is going to rock my socks! 

An amazing book with lots of emotions. Must read!! 


Final Life & Final Stand - The Transhuman Chronicles books by Rose Garcia {reviews}




Synopsis:
For Dominique Wells, nothing sucks more than being forced to move cross country during senior year. Angry and feeling alone, she thinks things can't get any worse until her new neighbor pressures her into playing a psychic card game. When she touches the cards, she has a vision of a red desert where an evil presence hints at past lives and threatens to kill her. 

Dominique tries to forget the experience, but the vision follows her, intensifying with each repetition. Plagued by fear and foreboding, she’s determined to figure out what’s happening to her. But she gets distracted when her parents invite a mysterious and gorgeous new student to stay with them and the hot guy from school starts pursuing her. If Dominique is to have a future with either one, she must solve the mystery of her past and put an end to the evil that's hunting her. If she doesn't, she'll be dead. For real. 






Synopsis:
Dominique is still alive after killing Tavion, the Tainted who's hunted her for lifetimes. Yet her protectors still fear for her life. They force her to flee Houston and abandon the friends she loves. But they can't protect her from herself. When Dominique starts hearing Tavion's voice in her head, she realizes that her personal connection to the Tainted still exists. And when her car is ambushed, she discovers another frightening truth—someone close to her is a traitor. 

Desperate for answers, Dominique seeks the aid of first lifers Trent and Infiniti. With their help, she hopes to find her new enemy. But things get complicated with Trent because of her emotional pull toward Farrell, and even more complicated when the whispers in her head threaten her loved ones. Determined to live, Dominique decides to make a final stand against the forces that want to end her. For good. 



My Review:
So luckily I was able to review these books back to back because honestly I would have gone nuts...the bad part...I still have to wait on book 3. Holy crap! I have to wait on book 3. I need it so badly. The way book 2 ended. I am dying here. OHMYGAWDDDDD!! These books are AHHHHHH-MAZZZING!!!

Book 1 - Wow. It sucked me in and I was finished reading before I realized I was at the end of the book. And then I was like WHAT? In book 1 you meet all the characters and you become attached. Some you like and some you just want to growl at. I immediately felt bad for Dominique. She is tossed into this world where she feels so lost and it seems like everyone around knows what's going on but her. Which is really true. You will definitely be on the edge of you seat holding your breath waiting to see what happens next.

Book 2 - This book is like you want to scream one minute and cry the next. Because it's an emotional rollercoaster. Just when you think you know what is happening. BAM! Garcia changes the course. You have no warning at all. It's pure craziness. It's wonderful but crazy. I loved it. But I have no idea what to expect next. This is what I need the next book. I'm scared. I know what I want to happen. But I don't know what will. I can only hope that some of the author twist and turns will come through and a miracle will happen. Someone come hold me!! 



The Harder I Fall by Jessica Gibson {review}



Synopsis:
Becca Langer was not a normal girl, she didn't have normal girl problems. For most of her life, she’s had to take care of herself, her younger brother Chad, and her drunk mother. She’s lived under the shadow of what her father did when she was ten years old. Forever branded by his actions. 

College was her escape, she could get away and finally live. Her dream was to make it in the New York Ballet Company one day. That for her meant a long road full of hard work and dedication. She didn't have time for distractions, and Levi Klein was definitely a distraction. 

Will Levi be able to crack through her tough exterior and really see the wounded soul underneath? Becca needs to be loved, but the question is, will she let Levi love her? 




My Review:
So we start this story with Becca dealing with an emotional nightmare and preparing to leave home for college.  From there we watch her battle herself and her need for friendship and her need to protect herself from getting close to anyone. She becomes friends with her roommate Sadie and Sadie helps Becca to open up. Then Becca meets Levi. Levi wants to be there for Becca but Becca doesn't know how to let him in.

This story is extremely emotional. Becca has not had a good life. She has a mother who has never been there for her. She has a little brother who she has always tried to protect and who she feels guilty for leaving behind. But through it all she has fought. She's strong but can she keep it up. Will her strength be her weakness in the end?

I loved all the characters in this book. The story flowed so easily. At times I wanted to shake Becca and scream look at what you have in front of you - Levi loves you!!!! But sometimes love takes time. :) It was a super sweet love story with a wonderful message behind it. A must read. 4 star!!

I can't wait to read Chad's story! He was such a sweetie.

Deception by K.A. Robinson Cover Reveal



Deception by K.A. Robinson Cover Reveal

Description:

Please note: This isn’t your typical love story. Things are messy. Characters aren’t always what they appear to be. Wrong decisions are made. If you’re not a fan of the darker side of love, this might not be the book for you. Read at your own risk.

I’m strong—or at least, I want to be. I try to be. Oh, how I’ve tried.
But life screwed me over. When I was at my weakest and lowest, desperate and alone, he found me.
Robert changed everything. He gave me everything.
He was every woman’s dream—rich, powerful, and charming. He made me forget the fact that he’s twenty-four years my senior.
He made me feel alive, and for the first time in my life, I was content.
Until I met Cooper—his son.
And Robert? He began to change.
I’m despicable. I know I am. I’m ashamed of what I want.

Things are never what they seem.

Greed.
Lust.
Lies.
Murder.
Deception.


Chapter One is available on K.A. Robinson's blog now. You can read it here!

Also, here is a teaser! (The very first one!) This is completely unedited!

I have no idea what you’re talking about.” I whispered as I took a step back. My back hit the wall, but he continued to step closer. He stopped right in front of me and rested his hands on the wall next to my head so that he caged me in.

“You’re a terrible liar, Claire. Even now, you want me. Your pupils are dilated and your breathing is uneven. You know what I can do and you want it. You want to be the one on my bed with my head buried between your legs.” He leaned closer so that his lips touched my ear. “All you have to do is ask. I promise you’ll be screaming when I’m done with you.”

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it's been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn't start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn't long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa's brain and The Love Series was born.

Bestselling Author of the Savannah Series. I published my first novel Irresistible Desire last March, and since then it's been whirlwind year! I love my die hard fans #KaydensAngels!

A stay-at-home mom, Chelsea spends her days drinking entirely too much caffeine, baking sugar-sweet treats she never eats, and jotting down notes for her novels. A dreamer at heart, she's creating happily ever afters. She's a lover, a writer, a dreamer, would rather type than speak, wants to remember everything, loves lots of ice in her drinks, and is slightly introverted.

Scarlett lives in the Midwest with her sexy husband, two girls, and three furbabies. She dabbled in writing right after college but it wasn't until she took up blogging about eight years ago that she started writing seriously. After writing a few boring service pieces for some online publications, she went back to her true passion, fiction. When she's not busy writing steamy stories, she can be found with her nose in a book, camping, or geocaching with her family. She loves Diet Coke, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and 80's hair bands.




Marissa Carmel has loved writing ever since a young age. She has a duel degree in History and Political Science, but took as many creative writing classes in college as she could. She spent most of her twenties bartending which is where she met her husband and a multitude of interesting people. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s hanging out with her family, experimenting in her kitchen or doing yoga on the living room floor.
