Don’t miss the next chapter in the New York Times bestselling series from Marie Force! Read the electrifying romantic suspense novel that everyone is talking about!

It’s just another day at the office for Washington Metro Police lieutenant Sam Holland when a body surfaces off the shores of the Anacostia River. But before Sam can sink her teeth into the new case, Secret Service agents seize her from the crime scene.

A threat has been made against her family, but nobody will tell her anything—including the whereabouts of her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano. This isn’t the first time the couple’s lives have been at risk, but when a bombshell from Sam’s past returns to haunt her, she can’t help but wonder if there’s a connection.

With a ruthless killer out for vengeance, and Nick struggling to maintain his reputation after secrets from his own past are revealed, Sam works to tie the threat to a murder that can’t possibly be a coincidence. And she has to get it done before her husband’s career is irrevocably damaged…

“Thank you, Brant,” Sam said to the agent in charge of Nick’s Secret Service detail.

“You’re welcome.” Brant paused before he added, “I know we’ve had this conversation before, Mrs. Cappuano, but I really recommend that you have a detail until we’re certain we’ve contained this threat.”

“I appreciate the recommendation, but I’ll be providing my own security through my team here. I’ll be accompanied by other armed officers everywhere I go. There’s no need to be redundant.”

“Redundant,” Nick muttered with a grunt that would’ve been laughter if the subject matter hadn’t been so grave. “Brant is suggesting added precaution, not redundancy.”

“It’s not necessary,” Sam said, digging in. The last fucking thing she needed was to be escorted around by federal agents. She may as well hang up her badge if that was going to be her reality.

“On that we disagree, my love,” Nick said. “But I’m not going to waste everyone’s time fighting a losing battle. Brant, we appreciate your thoroughness and ask you to keep us posted on the situation.”

“Will do, sir. I’ll wait for you outside.”

When they were alone, Sam looked up at Nick. “I know what you’re going to say, and—”

Nick kissed her hard. “I’ll see you at home later. Let me know if anything pops in the investigation.”

“That’s it? That’s all you’re going to say?”

“That’s it.”


“What does that mean?”

“You surprise me.”

He threw his head back and laughed. “Then my day is officially made. I’ve managed to surprise my shrewd, sexy wife.”

“I thought you were going to do the whole alpha-dog lift-your-leg thing and demand I have a detail.”

“Sorry to disappoint you on the leg lifting, babe, but we have a deal. Would I like you to have a detail? Abso-fucking-lutely. Do I understand why you won’t allow it? Yeah, I get it. Doesn’t mean I like it, but I get it.” He kissed her forehead and then her lips. “Now, we’ve both got stuff to do, so let’s get to it so we can get to the best part of the day.”

“Which is?”

His lips were a heartbeat away from hers when he said, “The part where you crawl into bed with me and rub your naked self all over me.”

Big Shot

Sexy Jerk World – Book 2

By Kim Karr


Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.

Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today.

Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.

Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.

A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.

The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.

But this time around, I can’t have her.

This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

RELEASE DAY 1 Big Shot Kim Karr Teaser 1

JULY 18 Big Shot Kim Karr Teaser 3

Michel’s Review

It’s no secret that I am a huge Kim Karr fan.  I love her writing.  She has the unique ability to think outside of the box and take predictable plots to another level.  She also gives her characters complex personalities that come as a surprise as their character develops in a book.  I can honestly say that Big Shot is one of my favorite books by her so far.

Readers were introduced to Jace in Sexy Jerk.  Besides being a successful businessman, he is a single father and widower.  Readers were able to get a glimpse of him while he was bogged down with his grief and maneuvering parenthood.  We also got to see a bit of his kinky side as well, when he becomes the third in his best friend’s bedroom.  The impressions readers were left with were intriguing.  We knew there had to be more to this man than what was initially presented.  It all goes back to ten years ago when he was a college student and fell hopelessly in love with his best friend’s girl.  The twisted love triangle ended badly and none of them got their happily ever after.  They all moved on in life and found their special someone to build a future with.  Unfortunately for Jace, his happily ever after was ended abruptly and he was left alone with his darling daughter. His main focus in life is raising her.  When a bully from school upsets his daughter he does what any good parent does, he takes control of the situation.  When he confronts the bully’s parent he’s in for a complete surprise.  It was the girl he fell hopelessly in love with and lost ten years ago.  He doesn’t want to want her and he can’t stay away.  This time around he has life experience, maturity, and better coping mechanisms in his arsenal.  He’s not going to let Hannah get away this time but first he has to let go of his grief.

Hannah never thought she would see Jace again after college.  When he turns up on her doorstep angry and defensive, she’s shocked.  Dealing with him on a daily basis through their children’s school functions is manageable.  What makes it worse is she was hired to work for his company.  Now she has to deal with him at work.  She’s not the same girl she once was.  Her future took a very different path and now her priorities are making a good life for her and her son.

Hannah and Jace can’t stay away from one another.  This time there isn’t a third person in the bedroom to hold back their insatiable passion for one another.  The only thing standing in their way is themselves.  They will have to choose how they want to mold their futures.  The choice may be what fate intended for them all along.

The only thing I can say is I LOVED THIS BOOK!  Kim Karr explored all the emotions that most authors don’t touch upon in menage type romances.  She showed the other side of the passion and the realities of the emotional repercussions.

I would highly recommend this book!

New Release + Review: Exploited by A. Meredith Walters – Zero Day Series – Book 1


A Zero Day Romance – Book One

By A. Meredith Walters

Buy: Amazon


In this pulse-pounding novel from the bestselling author of Butterfly Dreams, a vigilante hacker plays a seductive game with the agent who’s chasing her online—and sharing her bed in real life.

At first glance, I’m nothing out of the ordinary. I am a daughter. A sister. A friend. When you look at me you won’t see anything that warrants suspicion. I don’t look like a criminal.

My name is Hannah Whalen, but most people know me as freed0mov3rdr1v3, or “Freedom Overdrive”—one of the world’s most prolific and notorious hacktivists. My goal—my purpose—is to shed light on the evil that lurks behind the corporate and government lies we have been force-fed for too long.

My story begins with the best possible intention. Devoting my life to exposing the corrupt. The dishonest. The unethical. For that, they label me a cyber-terrorist. Wanted by the FBI, I’ve always been one step ahead.

Until I fell in love.

Because I’m sleeping with the man who’s hunting me. And he has no idea that I am his prey. Now I have to decide what’s more important: my freedom or my heart.

Note: Exploited ends on a cliffhanger. Hannah’s story continues in Aftermath.


Michel’s Review

Exploited by A. Meredith Walters is the debut book  in the new Zero Day series.  This new series has a fresh storyline which focuses on cyber crimes and the elite underworld of hackers.  With the stroke of a key a person’s life can be ruined.  Corporations can be bankrupted.  Powerful secrets can be revealed.  The almighty hacker has the power to destroy the world without a warning.

Freedom Overdrive… aka freed0mov3rdr1v3… has gained notoriety in the cyber world as the hacktivist exposing powerful corporations known for their corrupt misdeeds and control over the ordinary peoples lives.  This cyber vigilante’s actions are untraceable and has eluded the FBI for years.  Freedom Overdrive’s activities have waned in the past two years but suddenly resurfaced in a big way and once again gaining attention in the cyber world as well as the FBI.

Hannah Whelan is Freedom Overdrive.  She’s on a mission to destroy those who have destroyed ordinary people and ordinary families.  Her motivations are pure.  She covers her tracks and is untraceable.  On the surface she’s appears to be an ordinary person that no one really notices.  She lives her life quietly, doesn’t socialize, doesn’t have friends or family relationships, and never allows anyone to become close with her.  Her focus is revenge for her family. Her secret world behind the keyboard is expertly hidden and off the radar.   When she steps outside her perfectly structured domain and teams up with another hacktivist, TOx1cwrath, it becomes  the biggest mistake of life.  Her perfectly structured world spirals out of control.

Hannah targeted FBI agent Mason Kohler to stay one step ahead of the FBI.  What she didn’t count on was falling in love with Mason.  She also underestimated his brilliance and dedication to his job. She also underestimated her shadow partner TOx1cwrath.

Between her relationship with Mason and her partnership with TOx1cwrath, her life is spiraling out of control.  Her lies are catching up to her.  Her over inflated ego is blinding her.  Her new shadow partner has outsmarted her and is destroying her with her own weapon of choice, the keyboard.  One stroke and Hannah is exposed.  Mason knows who she is.  Her shadow partner, TOx1cwrath, has set her up.  Who is TOx1cwrath?  Can she outsmart him and take him down before it’s too late.  Can she let go of her love for Mason to save her skin or will she be ruined by her own inflated ego?

I found this book very intriguing.  It had a different plot line that kept me turning the pages. A. Meredith Rogers did an excellent job portraying the cyber world without making it too overly complex for readers to follow.  There were a few blips in the overall plot that left me scratching my head wondering what I missed because there wasn’t enough explanations. One was why she targeted Mason in the first place because at that point her endeavors were untraceable.  The other thing that threw me off track was the build up of some of the potential characters who could possibly be TOx1cwrath.  There just wasn’t enough background to understand the hostility or motivations.  While Hannah was a different kind of book character I will say that she really wasn’t a nice person.  She treated people with indifference or hostility.  I had a hard time seeing the connection between her and Mason.  The one thing that kept me intrigued and turning the pages was all the possibilities that haven’t been revealed at this point.  My faith in A. Meredith Walter’s writing ability kept me invested in the story because she is known for creating complex characters and unpredictable plots.  I want to see what comes next because I feel this book is only scratching the surface.


Zero Day Series

Aftermath – Book Two

Pre Order: Amazon


Can a thrilling love affair survive a scorched-earth cyber-war? The chase is online in the explosive conclusion to the Zero Day series from New York Times bestselling author A. Meredith Walters. 

Spoiler alert! The following reveals crucial plot points from Exploited.

I thought I had been so careful. I had planned, plotted, played the role, always staying hidden from the man who was hunting me. But now Mason Kohler knows who I really am. The cat has found the mouse—the agent has found the hacker.

And the worst part is, he thinks our love story is a lie.

I fell for him from the beginning. That was always real. But it doesn’t matter now. Mason’s waging a war against his heart, and he’s determined to bring me down at all costs. So now I live in fear, all because I was betrayed by someone I foolishly chose to trust.

See, all that time I thought I was exposing corruption, I was unknowingly conspiring with the worst kind of evil. Now, to prove myself to Mason and save what we have, I have one last hope. One obsession. I must learn the identity of my true enemy—the anonymous individual known as Toxicwrath—before it’s too late.

Release Day Blitz: Well Built by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde


Well Built by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Date of Publication: July 25, 2017



When it comes to women, sexy, well-built Kyle Coleman has always been a lover, not a fighter. His one exception? The sassy, tempting, smart-mouthed Ella Fisher. Her family and his are sworn enemies, which make the two of them off-limits—despite the fact that she’s inspired some of his dirtiest, most erotic fantasies for years. But when the lines between animosity and lust become irrevocably blurred one fateful evening, their one night stand leads to a very unexpected consequence—that changes everything between them forever.

Available From


Ella flinched, and without thinking, she clutched on to Kyle’s arm with both of hers, one hand clamping tight around his bicep and the other around his forearm as she clung to him.  As if he sensed something was majorly wrong, he anchored her closer to his side and pulled her into the first alcove they came across, which was a boutique that was closed for the evening.  She gulped in a breath, feeling as though she couldn’t inhale enough oxygen into her lungs.

          “Jesus Christ, Ella.  You’re not okay,” he said, his voice gruff as he framed her face in his hands, his brows furrowed in worry.  “You’re shaking and on the verge of hyperventilating.”

          On top of everything else, she felt her cheeks heat with embarrassment that he had to see her like this.  “It’s the city,” she wheezed out.  “I hate everything about it.  The noises, the people, the traffic.”  She was starting to pant, which only increased her light-headedness and her panic.  “Everything feels like it’s closing in on me.”

          He immediately pulled her against his chest, and she went willingly.  Wrapping one arm securely around her waist to hold her tight against his body, he pushed his other hand through her hair until his fingers were curved around the back of her head, which he guided down to his chest with her face turned away from the congested street. She desperately gripped his T-shirt like a lifeline.

          “Close your eyes and concentrate on slow, deep breaths,” he ordered huskily.  “Just relax.  I’ve got you, Ella, and you’re going to be fine.”

          She swallowed hard and concentrated on each inhale and exhale while he stroked his big hand up and down her back and gently massaged her skull with his fingers.  Her cheek was pressed against his warm, solid chest, and she couldn’t remember ever feeling so safe and protected.  For so long, she’d been the responsible one taking care of everyone else and putting their needs above her own. It had been that way for so many years that it had become second nature to her and a part of her daily life taking care of the market, her father, her sister . . . 

          But this comforting embrace . . . it was almost luxurious.  Like a rare treat where she could let down her guard for a few minutes knowing that someone else had everything under control.  She’d never thought that someone would be Kyle Coleman, or that being in his arms again would feel so good . . . or so perfectly right.   

          God, she’d missed him.  So damn much

          She burrowed closer, stealing a few more moments with him.  With her heart rate and breathing returning to normal, the masculine scent of him filled her senses—woodsy with a hint of spice—calming her jangled nerves and elevating her awareness of him as a man who was attentive, tempting, and becoming increasingly irresistible by the second.

          While her body had softened against his, she realized that he’d gone tense, despite the gentle stroking motion of his palm along her back.  Her breasts were cushioned against his muscled chest in the most sensual, arousing way, and through her skirt, she felt his thighs flex against hers as he shifted ever so subtly.  She bit back a soft groan when the firm bulge in his jeans pressed against her lower stomach, telling her just how affected he was by this embrace, as well.     

          “Better?” he asked, his gruff voice reverberating through his chest and against her cheek. 

          “Yes.  Much better,” she murmured, but made no effort to move just yet.  Not until she was absolutely forced to, because this was sheer heaven.  “Thank you for being so patient and understanding.  I really do appreciate it.” 

          “Of course,” he responded, as if him taking care of her was a given.  “I had no idea you had urban-phobia.”

          “Urban-phobia?”  She couldn’t contain the giggle that bubbled up inside of her as she lifted her head to meet his rich, dark brown gaze.  “Did you just make that word up?”

          “Maybe.”  His eyes crinkled at the corners as he gave her a boyish grin that peeked through that trimmed beard on his face and was filled with humor.  “But you’ve got to admit, it sounds official, doesn’t it?”

          She laughed, the last of those jittery nerves ebbing into a slow, simmering warmth that settled in her belly just as everything and everyone around them faded away.  They stared into each other’s eyes, and with his arm still wrapped tight around her waist and his fingers still tangled in her hair, the atmosphere between them changed, their mutual desire growing into a nearly tangible thing. 

          Slowly, she released his shirt from her fists and splayed her hands on his chest so she could better span the impressive expanse of muscles beneath the soft cotton.  He was solid and strong and well built, and so deliciously hard, she thought, as she dared to skim her hands a bit lower, until her thumbs boldly brushed across the upper ridges of what was undoubtedly the start of a spectacular six- or eight-pack abdomen.   

          A deep, tortured groan rumbled in his throat, and the fingers in her hair tightened.  Holding her head immobile, he tipped her face up to his while his darkening gaze dropped to her mouth.  His chest rose and fell much heavier now, as if he was trying to maintain a tight rein on his control, and right or wrong, she wanted to crumble that polite restraint.

Release Blitz + 6 Star Review + 2017 Favorite: Savaged Vows by Jennifer Lyon – Savaged Illusions Trilogy – Book 2

Savaged Vows
Savaged Illusions Series – Book 2
Release Date: July 24, 2017
Buy: Amazon / B & N / ITunes / Kobo


How much will she risk for love?

Despite her dark past with a rock icon, Liza Glasner can’t walk away from the man she loves with a fiery passion—sexy rock star Justice Cade. A surprise pregnancy and marriage give Liza the family she’s craved since she was fourteen. But her love is tested when Liza’s worst nightmare—Gene Hayes—bursts onto the scene, spreading lies and smears to tear her and Justice apart. Can Liza trust Justice to choose her over fame?

How far will he go for fame?

Justice fiercely loves his beautiful and resilient wife Liza, and he’s determined to protect her from Gene Hayes. At the same time, he’s loyal to his band. The four other men in Savaged Illusions are his brothers, and together, they are battling hard to come back from a humiliating defeat. But just as the pinnacle of success is within their reach, Justice discovers a truth that will either decimate his band or destroy his wife.

Can their love survive?

Secrets and betrayals explode in a heartbreaking twist that threatens to rip Justice and Liza apart forever.

Savaged Vows is book 2 in the Savaged Illusions Trilogy, and ends in a cliffhanger. Book 3, Savaged Devotion, will be released in September 2017.


The Savaged Illusions Trilogy by Jennifer Lyon has become my favorite rock star romance series!  This is not the typical rock star romance with a brooding rock star and sweet ordinary girl but rather a complex collection of different romance genres blended together in perfect harmony to make a thrilling, emotional story that will hold the readers captive.

Savaged Dreams – book one ended on a huge cliffhanger.  I had no idea where the aftermath of that cliffhanger would lead.  I can honestly say it wasn’t anything predictable. Savaged  Vows – book two took on a different life in itself that ended on an emotional irreparable cliffhanger and left me wanting more right now!

Savaged Illusions is trying regain their momentum after losing the tv reality battle of the bands competition.  They are trying not to let Liza become their Yoko Ono.  The band has hired a progressive manager that knows the business.  They are in the studio recording their album on their own dime.  The upcoming release and promotion of their album is draining them financially but they are willing to sacrifice the time, effort, and funds to make their future a success.  There is no room for anything else in their lives.  Their goal is to make the top 100 on the charts and secure a place on the World Rock Stage concert in Paris.  This concert will launch their band and give them world wide recognition and secure them a tour contract. Gaining this is going to cost more than money and hard work, they may have to sell their souls and compromise everything they hold dear. It’s a sacrifice their willing to make because the outcome is worth it all.  They naively believe they can control the circumstances without any repercussions. Little did they know it could cost them everything and make Liza a Yoko Ono.  Not only will affect the band, it will give the devil more than his due.

Liza survived the brutal attack after the final band competition.  Savaged Illusions lost the competition and they blamed her even though she was the real party targeted.  It left her on the outskirts of the band even though her boyfriend Justice was the lead singer.  Her past involvement with mega rockstar Gene Hayes has put Savaged Illusions in a negative light with the fans.  The band doesn’t want her involved with their next steps to fame.  She’s okay with that because she’s trying to finish school, graduate, and secure a job.  Things start going in positive directions for the band as well as herself even though she and Justice are juggling a long distance relationship.  They are secure enough in their relationship to make this work.  And it does until a surprise pregnancy enters the picture. Liza and Justice decide to get married before his schedule gets too busy. Not only is she supporting their household, building her career, managing Justice father’s stability, she is also experiencing the upcoming birth of their child alone.  Every occasional moment she has with Justice ends up in a negative mess with the press, which in turn alienates her more with the band members. Through unanimous vote, the band decides she cannot be near their album tour until they secure a spot on the World Rock Stage in Paris.  Justice promises to bring Liza to Paris with them so they can have their belated honeymoon and precious time together before the baby is born.  Liza is taking it all in stride even though she feels isolated and lonely.

Paris is exactly what their relationship needed to reconnect and jumpstart their future.  Paris was exactly what the band needed to claim the future they worked so hard for.  Paris is the city of love and everything was perfect. Paris is also the city of betrayal and destruction.  Savage Illusions gained their fame but lost their souls.  Liza paid the price.  The devil, Gene  Hayes, got his due and more.  Cliffhanger!

OMG… this book took the series to a whole new emotional level that left me devastated. It’s impossible to contemplate which direction it will go next because it seems so hopeless. The writing was brilliant because it added so many layers to the story. The suspense escalated and the ulitimate showdown was heartbreaking. This book touched on many issues in life such as PTSD, homelessness, pregnancy, rape, relationship issues, friendship issues, greed, and notoriety. In spite of it all, the best part is there is a beautiful romance and unquestionable love that shines brightly.

September can’t get here fast enough! I need Savaged Devotion now!

about the book(2)

Trixsters Anonymous Ebook Sassy, dramatic, hot-headed are just some of the words used to describe me since the time I was born. A few little mishaps growing up and my mom has a running ‘Emerson Baker’ prayer circle, and I have the reputation of a spit-fire that won’t go away.

I prefer the terms loyal, passionate, fiery, and possibly a bit impulsive.

So when my best friend proposes the concept of starting our own business, I jump on the idea.


That should be our motto… because your secrets can’t stay hidden for long with Trixsters Anonymous on the case.

We are the moonlighting duo hell-bent on helping those who suspect their lovers are cheating. We’re professional, careful, and completely anonymous…What could possibly go wrong?

Walker Scott… that’s what goes wrong.

I never stood a chance against the gorgeous, hazel-eyed, fiercely determined man who storms into my life and completely blindsides me.

He’s the proof that opposites attract—and when they do, the chemistry is explosive.

Did I mention he’s also a detective? A very, very, talented detective?

Pretty soon being a Trixster is a lot more complicated.
