Kennedy Brennan was just about to start her life after graduating from the Barton Music Conservatory, She and her 3 best friends decide to have one last night out before the graduation ceremony the next morning. Accepting drinks from a secret admirer brings her life to a screeching halt. After waking up from a coma and facing her attacker during a trial she changes her identity and starts a new life in Denver. Finding an old run down building across the street from her favorite bakery she plans to start a Music Conservatory of her own. The only thing standing in her way is Billionaire Real Estate Developer and One of America’s Most Eligible Bachelors Easton Kerrigan.

Kennedy and Easton’s Story is the beginning of a 6 book Series involving The Kerrigan Siblings and Friends.

This book is filled with really likable characters. I loved Easton and Kennedy’s families! Also, this book is like a drama and angst filled soap opera! I loved it! It certainly keeps you turning the page to find out what happens next!

3

The pacing of the book felt off to me. There were times things would happen so quickly and weren’t really described well. I found myself flipping back to see if I skipped something. Also, throughout the book Kennedy (and eventually some other characters) discuss having conversations and encounters with dead friends/loved ones. This might be really annoying/unrealistic to some readers since these conversations with the dead guide a lot of Kennedy’s actions. I, however, wasn’t really bothered by it but I wanted to mention it since some people will roll their eyes and find it very unrealistic.

Defying Fate by Heidi Lis ∼ Blog Tour
Genre ∼ Contemporary Romance
Released ∼ May 28th, 2015

Synopsis

Sometimes love can turn ugly.

Sometimes love can hurt.

Sometimes the best thing to do is escape!

Leaving everything behind Izzy Parker escaped the hell that had been her life. Driving as far west as she could, to get away from her evil past she ended up in Washington State.

Izzy’s new life is turned upside down when she meets her Harley-riding neighbor Braxton Ryles.

Larger than life Braxton is a biker with a mouth to go with it. Owning his own shop, he controls most things in his life. Living and loving hard, the only thing that means anything to him is his daughter Eve. Upon hearing they had a new neighbor move in, his curiosity gets the better of him when his daughter won’t stop talking about their new neighbor.

The instant their eyes meet, chemistry takes over and ignites into an inferno of lust. His sense of humor and her blushing tendencies seem to sizzle whenever they are together. The only problem is they both have troubled pasts, evil ex’s that want to rip their new found happiness apart.

One-ex wants revenge; the other seeks vengeance.

What happens when their new found love collides with the ones who threaten to take it all away?

Can love survive? Or will their pasts burn their dreams of a future to ashes?

Love will be tested, hearts will break, and the horrors of the past will reveal a secret Izzy is desperate to keep hidden.

My Review:

Heat-o-meter: R with some NC-17

Rating: C+

This book started off good for me. I liked the suspense and there were characters that I wanted to reach into my kindle and kill myself! I actually think its great when an author writes a villain I feel that strongly about. But, this book did contain one of my deal breakers: cheating. If that isn’t a deal breaker for you, you will probably really enjoy this book. Honestly, it is a small event in the grand scheme of the book but I just couldn’t like the hero after that. I also lost some respect for the heroine for how easily she forgave him.

But, if an indiscretion isn’t a deal breaker for you, this book is one you should certainly pick up!!

Excerpt

He leans into me, his lips barely touching mine. I am yearning to feel the softness of them as he teases me with a slow lick of his lower lip. My eyes are entranced. His wet, velvety tongue glistens as if inviting me in. I’m visibly shaken as every ounce of my body feels like it’s now lit on fire. Braxton is intoxicating.

Review: Pretty Boy and an Interview with M. Kay Fox!

Blog Tour
Pretty Boy
by
M. Kay Fox
July 6th – July 16th
 
 
Such a pretty boy.
Kip Klein has heard this for a
very long time. Apparently that was all he was ever good at anyway. His own
mother despised him for looking like his deceased father. It forced him from
his small hometown to the big city of Chicago.
Lights. Camera. Action.
Welcomed with open arms into the
career of modeling, Kip finds himself doing anything to keep his name and image
out there including showing off his assets for the ladies. Losing his edge, Kip
is sent home to Hawker Flats to rediscover just what made him rough. He
discovers much more than past memories.
The latest Summer fling.
Could her life get any harder?
Summer Sadler is orphaned, a guardian to her half-brother and working every
waking hour she can. On the verge of bankruptcy, she is duped and used for the
land that she owns. Was it too much to hope that the torture would end?
Just one more kiss.
Summer didn’t expect to collide
with Kip Klein, but collide she did. The rigid muscles and tantalizing voice
chase away all reason to keep her distance. Maybe one kiss will cure
everything. Maybe one kiss will destroy them both.
2
Heat-o-meter: R (This book is promoted as an Erotic Romance but I thought it was fairly tame and y’all know I don’t usually read erotica!)
Rating: B-
This book is a cute, short read that you can finish in 1 sitting.Ok, the prologue starts off with a bang and I was like “where the heck is this going!?!”. I liked Kip and Summer. My only real complaint is the book is a novella that I wanted to be a novel. It all felt rushed and at times I though maybe I had skipped a page by accident. So, if you are looking for a quick read with good romance, this is perfect! If you are looking for deeper characters and drama, this might not be your thing!

Author Interview

1. What inspired Pretty Boy? How did you come up with the idea and these characters?
>>A couple of reader friends and I were talking about male models and how they have become so popular in the industry (especially Indie) and I started to wonder if they were forced to do things that maybe they wouldn’t like so much just to keep their following. I don’t think the idea is as far fetched as it seemed at first. I think most of our fears are being forgotten when you are on top.2. Do you have any rituals when writings (do you have to listen to music, or be in a certain chair, etc)
>>No rituals so much, although this is my first book. I always sit down with a stack of scratch paper, a drink, and a snack. I’m not that superstitious, I guess.

3. Do you ‘map out’ a story before writing or do you just go with it?
>>I just started writing. I really had no idea where it was going. I knew what Kip wanted to say, but beyond that it was mad typing and then major editing.

4. What books do you have coming up that we should keep an eye out for?
>>I haven’t planned any further books, honestly. A few readers have asked for more of Summer and Kip. A couple suggestions to me were to use other male models or some of his friends from the book. We shall see. You’ll be just as surprised as me!

5. What is your favorite genre to read? Who are some of your one-click authors?
>>I am totally enthralled with S.E. Hall and Angela Graham. I read just about everything. My favorite genre is romance and anything remotely sticking to it, I’ll read it.

6. How do you choose a title? How do you choose your character names? Do you try to avoid naming them after people you know?
>>Pretty Boy as a title came easily. I thought about how lots of people think models are just pretty faces and that they really have nothing else to offer. As it coems to character names, I chose Summer for her comparison to the season. She’s beautiful, but really hard to know. Sometimes she can just be too hot to hold. As far as the others, I try really hard not to rhyme. That isn’t as easy as you think it might be 🙂

7. Ok this is a question I call ‘favorites’. Just tell us your favorite of each of these things:

a. Color >>Blue
b. Food >>Chinese
c. TV show >>Rookie Blue
d. Movie >>The Other Woman
e. Book >>Handled by S.E. Hall and Angela Graham
f. Author >>A.C. Wilson, Shevawn Michelle, and Sara Zook
g. PC or Mac >>PC
h. Coke or Pepsi >>Pepsi but really Mt. Dew
