***COVER REVEAL*** Entangled by S.E. Hall

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]add-to-goodreads-button31Synopsis:
Things heat up, and not just the Georgia summertime, when Dane and Laney go head to head over plans for her new duplex. But Laney's got his number, and knows just how to coerce her bossy, domineering man. Spend the summer with the gang and find out...just how many is a crowd?
The members of the Evolve Crew are getting older; so is the content. Mature audiences recommended.
“Men shouldn’t know how to decorate anyway, using words like gaudy.” I let one brow raise and give him a suspicious smirk. “Do I need to learn how to fix the cars then? What if I get a flat?” “Oh baby,” he growls, his feet pounding the floor as he stalks toward me, “you questioning my manliness?” “Maybe,” I tease, slowing backing up. “Nancy.” My eyes dart anxiously around the room, mentally planning my escape route in this new territory. He laughs deeply, not a ‘ha ha that’s funny’ laugh, but more an ‘uh huh I’m coming to get ya’ sexy laugh. “Got it planned yet?” He grins knowingly, one eyebrow cocked. “Better run to wherever looks the most comfortable.” There’s no furniture yet, what is he talking about comfortable? Seeing the confusion on my face, he answers unasked. “Showing you how much of a man I am when I catch ya,” he creeps closer, “so I’d stay away from the tile, might hurt your back,” the mischief in his eyes ignites as he continues moving slowly closer, “or your knees.” Do I still have to pretend I don’t want to be caught? I love this side of Dane; the dominant, controlling, hunter than comes out more and more every day. The game’s precept itself is laughable; no one could question Dane’s virility. It seeps from his pores, an aura around him taking up all the air in a room. And he’s all mine. From his forever jostled brown locks and matching warm eyes, cocky lopsided grin and sculpted chest all the way to his eight back, that irresistible v and toned, tight ass- he is mine. “You wouldn’t!” I challenge, knowingly delightfully well that he would. “Oh baby, you know I can and will.” He flips open the button on his pants, that cocky grin suffocating me from where he stands, “I think you want me to.”

2 CHICKS AND A BLOG ***** 5 Star Review *****
Brooke amazeballs Cumberland, girl you have done it again!

The story of Vel and Eric takes off in a whirlwind once again and it is absolutely amazing. Twists and turns, laughter, heartbreak, and many wtf moments later I just loved it. The writing style that she has with these characters and this story, I am so completely in love with. She takes you into their lives, like you, yourself, are living it. You feel for these people like you know them personally. She blew me away yet again from start to finish. I simply cannot wait to read more of anything that she puts out.

When true love sparks, will you run from it, or let it burn through you and make it real.

5 amazing stars!!!!

***COVER REVEAL*** Feel Like Makin' Love by Barbara Stewart

Have you read Rock and Roll Never Forgets?  How about When I Look To The Sky?  Well, this story follows Andy Stevens through his life after Bethy. 
RRNF was one of the BEST stories I have EVER read, in my life.  I am in awe that Barbara invited us to participate in this cover reveal.  I cannot wait to read this one!!  Make sure to add it to your TBR.

Andy Stevens was a ‘Rock God’ of the music world in the 1970s and 80s. He lived his life on the road, going from one concert venue to the next. And then he met the sweet girl-next-door, Beth Morgan, his “Bethy”. As a couple they spent many years together traveling life’s highway – a path with many ups and downs, detours, and finally a place where they would spend their forever together, but forever was a brief moment. 
Carlee Oliver became an unexpected addition to Andy’s life that changed his direction completely. She taught him how to love – unconditionally – and became the daughter he never knew he needed. But now she was off in Europe, married, sharing her life with a new husband, and for the first time in many years, Andy found himself alone. 
Reflections of years past and memories led him on a new journey. 
Could he share his heart again…?

***TOUR STOP*** Stories for Amanda - Various Authors

Amanda Todd was a young girl who dealt with bullying for three years.  Lured into a bad decision by a cyber-stalker when she was only 12 years old, she was mercilessly targeted online and in real life over and over again, until it became more than she could deal with.
She wanted to help other kids by sharing her story and letting them know they should never be punished for who they are or for making a mistake. is an organization that reaches out to kids in need, educates about the harmful effects of bullying and provides resources that can make a real difference.
If you don't know Amanda's story, you can search her on YouTube and see a video she made 3 weeks prior to taking her own life (she tells her story) because of 3 years of vicious bullying.
When people try to bring you down, it’s because you’re above them.
You only need one person to believe in you… that person is YOU.
With love to Princess Snowflake and others in need…
100% of the proceeds from sale of this book will be donated toward that vision.
The authors are humbled and proud to offer our support to this very worthy cause.

Stories for Amanda is a collection of short stories from these 16 VERY talented authors:
Karen Avivi - Stand Alone story
Kahlen Aymes - Missing Scene from The Remembrance Trilogy (Ryan and Julia)
E.K. Blair - Missing scene from ROTTEN
J. L. Brooks - Stand Alone
Claire Contreras - Stand Alone but characters from upcoming release; Catch Me
Kelly Elliott - Stand Alone
Kailin Gow - A You & Me Trilogy Story for Book 1: Saving You Saving Me
Karina Halle - Stand Alone featuring characters from The Artists Trilogy
Nina Lane - A Spiral of Bliss short story
E. L. Montes – Stand Alone
Alexa Nazzaro - Stand Alone
Jessica Prince - Short story from Picking Up The Pieces Anthology
Madeline Sheehan - Stand Alone
Michelle Valentine - Black Falcon prequel to Rock the Heart
Nikki Worrell - Stand Alone
I was approached by Flirty Dirty Book Blog after the RT Convention last May about this cause so I researched Amanda's story and like so many others, was moved to tears. I have a daughter that is just a year or two younger than Amanda was when she ended her life. I asked Denise Tung... "What if we put together a book where 100% of the proceeds went to help fund the anti-bullying effort?" She was thrilled with the idea and then I reached out to some of my author- friends. The response was overwhelming and the rest, as they say, is history.
Now it is 16 stories (some missing scenes from a popular series) and some brand new short stories, from 16 authors that reach across the Young Adult, New Adult and Romance genres. It is our hope that our readers will come together to support this very worthy cause and that we can help, in some small way, to keep even one more child from suffering from this horrific epidemic...
These are very generous women and I feel honored to share pages with them.
2 Chicks And A Blog - ASHLEY'S REVIEW
Let me just start this by saying, WOW.  I am beyond HONORED to have been selected to read and review this amazing set of short stories by some of my most favorite authors. 
Stories for Amanda includes short stories, that are almost all 5 star worthy. 
The pure fact that these authors took time from their busy schedule to write these stories for this amazing cause melts my heart.  In an Indie world, that at times, is filled with drama and bullying of it's own, these authors took a step out of their own world in order to help this cause. 
Bullying is a pandemic these days.  Almost everyone is bullied in some way or another.  This needs to stop.  These stories revolve around a central theme and I'm sure I don't need to spell it out for you.
I wished, at the end of almost all of these stories, that they weren't just stories.  I want more.  This anthology has opened my eyes to many authors that I haven't read before.  There will be some stalking in their near future.
Please purchase this book on the 22nd of October to help these authors support this cause.
Bullying needs to stop, people need to be aware of the effects of bullying and people need to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves.
2 Chicks and a Blog PROUDLY stand with these amazing authors against bullying, in any way, shape and form.  We give STORIES FOR AMANDA 5 out of 5 'We'll Stand By You' Stars!!!

Destroying the Wrong - Manda's Review

Destroying the wrong takes you on a journey between 2 high school students trying desperately to not get involved in the crazy bullying that goes on all around them. 

It follows Kat (the bookworm) and Alissa (the boy crazy best friend) on emotional journey from love,  betrayal,  bullying, hurt, laughter, tears and family. They go through it all and then some. It really jumped into the feelings that these girls felt from cyber bullies to real life in your face nitty gritty bullies and I must say they  handle it well. These two girls push through the emotional baggage of high school to graduate from school early and fight for what they believe in. They learn self confidence from every situation by getting through it with each other. 

I'm pumped for the next one in rhe series. This chick gives it 4 stars!!

"I love you Kat----- I Love you back Alissa"

***BLOG TOUR STOP*** Cage by Harper Sloan

"Alpha heroes you'll want to kidnap and keep, heroines to root for, and sizzling love scenes with emotional punch." Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author

Greg Cage was born to protect. While growing up, he was his mother and sister’s shield against the world… until he failed. For the last decade, he has carried that guilt and need for vengeance around… until it was stripped from him. Now, with his best friend getting married and no longer needing his protection, he is even more lost, completely adrift, and desperate for some control. All he has ever known was how to protect: his family, his friends, and his country. Can he go against everything he has ever known, and give up that control?

Melissa Larson will never let anyone hold the reins in her life. She has been the rock in her family for more years than she can remember, and the fight to keep them together is her main priority right now. She has always been fiercely independent and proud. The last thing she will ever do is ask for someone else’s help. But when that choice is out of her control, forcing her to rely on others to save her and her family, and pick up the pieces that are left, will she be able to let someone else be her strength?

The second Greg locks eyes with Meli, he knows that she is someone he needs. Someone he craves. Meli knew the second she met Greg that he would be nothing but trouble and heartache. Her life takes anunexpected turn, and that bitch Fate is back to wreak more havoc on another member of the Corps family.

All hell breaks loose, leaving Greg no choice but to call in a favor. He hooks back up with his old friend Braxxon Breaker from the Breakneck MC. Together, they make sure that nothing threatens anyone Greg loves again.

CAGE is a complete story with a HEA.

Author info
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthyobsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her ereader attached. As an ex-reviewer and blogger, Harper's passion for reading runs deep. It wasn't until 'Axel' decided to take up residence that she realized her true calling.
She started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

2 Chicks and a Blog Review - Ashley's Feelings ..

Axel Who??!?!

Oh sweet baby Jesus .. Cage .. WOW!!! Words can't even do this exceptional character justice. I have NEVER "swooned" so hard and so fast for a character as I did Cage. I made it to 5% and I knew this was the man of my dreams.

Harper's writing is AMAZING and I can't believe she keeps getting better and better with each book, chapter, paragraph. She is truly amazing and I am so honored that I was given an ARC to read, in return for an honest review. Even as I read the ARC, I still purchased this copy and read it AGAIN because, well, it's that effing amazing.

Cage finds himself between a rock and a hard place a few different times throughout this novel. Dealing with crazy wanna be girlfriends (PS give me a shovel so I can knock some sense into Mandy. REALLY!?!?! That's the kind of girl that gives ALL of us a bad name. Stage 5 Clinger does not do her justice. She might be stage 6). A piece of information that can (and might) devastate the new interest in Mr. Cage's life.

Getting Greg's story now, really helps puts things we learned about him in "Axel" into prospective.

Talk about an ALPHA ... WOWZA .. Pure Alpha OOZES from his pores and I love each and every darn drop. Greg Cage, this man, he loves hard and screws harder.

Melissa. GAWD how I love this girl. Not afraid to take charge emotionally and sexually. Mother of all things HOLY, I might have a lady crush.

If you're looking for a book that has angst, love, passion, SEX, and a hella back story, this friends, is your book. READ. CAGE. NOW. You're welcome!!!
