Book Trailer




A Ray of Hope by Jeanne McDonald





Micah Cooper, an EMT in New York City, was no stranger to thinking fast and acting faster. His life was a continuous loop of spontaneous decisions. Everything was a matter of life or death in his line of work. He lived for the thrill, and loved the ability to help those in need.

Being the son of a well renowned surgeon, Micah was well educated in the life of a medical professional. He had seen everything, or at least he thought he had. But when the planes crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Micah realized he hadn’t seen it all. In a single moment, he lost his ability to think. Trapped inside the south tower was his wife, Hope.

Hope was Micah’s world, his sunshine, and when the towers collapsed, so did his heart. He watched, along with the world, as the heart of America went down in dust and flames. Through the chaos and devastation, Micah only had one mission, to find Hope.

By his side, through the madness, was his trusted partner and friend, Zachary Pearce. Together, they raced against time and destruction to save Hope. In the midst of tragedy, discouraged that all might be lost, Micah holds on to a ray of hope that his wife will be found.


Review by FS Meurinne

The events of 9/11 changed the world, no matter where you where, I'm sure everyone remembers what you did on that day. For me was a day I had a college exam, I've woken up at 3 am to study (my normal study time, in case you wondered, I wasn't ever able to study during regular day time). After I was done I decided to turn on the tv and watch the morning news as I got ready. The exam wasn't until 11 am (Central Time) so I watched everything as it happened. I still have my exam as I don't live in the US. But we where all shocked about everything.

This story reminds us of some of the many stories of that day. One where hope was present and the only thing that kept most people from collapsing as well.

Even though it is a novella, it is enough for the reader to fall in love with the characters and their story. We all know there wasn't a HEA for everyone in 9/11, but there where a few miracles that showed us that you should bever loose hope or take things for granted.

Give this story a chance to show you a story that could've been true for any hero of the NY-EMT brigade.

Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld


Uglies (Book #1)

Tally Youngblood is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait for the operation that turns everyone from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to party. But new friend Shay would rather hoverboard to "the Smoke" and be free. Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world and it isn't very pretty. The "Special Circumstances" authority Dr Cable offers Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.




Pretties (Uglies #2)

Gorgeous. Popular. Perfect. Perfectly wrong.

Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun -- the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom -- is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life -- because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive.




Specials (Uglies #3)

"Special Circumstances": The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent, rebellious ugly. Back then Specials were a sinister rumor -- frighteningly beautiful, dangerously strong, breathtakingly fast. Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special. But Tally's never been ordinary. 

And now she's been turned into one of them: a superamped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid. 

The strength, the speed, and the clarity and focus of her thinking feel better than anything Tally can remember. Most of the time. One tiny corner of her heart still remembers something more. 

Still, it's easy to tune that out -- until Tally's offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently. It all comes down to one last choice: listen to that tiny, faint heartbeat, or carry out the mission she's programmed to complete. Either way, Tally's world will never be the same.




Extras (Uglies #4)

It's a few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime. Without those strict roles and rules, the world is in a complete cultural renaissance. "Tech-heads" flaunt their latest gadgets, "kickers" spread gossip and trends, and "surge monkeys" are hooked on extreme plastic surgery. And it's all monitored on a bazillion different cameras. The world is like a gigantic game of "American Idol." Whoever is getting the most buzz gets the most votes. Popularity rules.

As if being fifteen doesn't suck enough, Aya Fuse's rank of 451,369 is so low, she's a total nobody. An extra. But Aya doesn't care; she just wants to lie low with her drone, Moggle. And maybe kick a good story for herself.

Then Aya meets a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks, yet are deeply secretive of it. Aya wants desperately to kick their story, to show everyone how intensely cool the Sly Girls are. But doing so would propel her out of extra-land and into the world of fame, celebrity...and extreme danger. A world she's not prepared for.

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay



I live in a world without magic or miracles. A place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. A place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. I am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days I wonder how I am still able to lift my feet to walk.

Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her—her identity, her spirit, her will to live—pay.

Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But the more he gets to know her, the more of an enigma she becomes. As their relationship intensifies and the unanswered questions begin to pile up, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she’s been hiding—or if he even wants to.
The Sea of Tranquility is a rich, intense, and brilliantly imagined story about a lonely boy, an emotionally fragile girl, and the miracle of second chances.

How the hell does a man seduce a feisty woman whose gotten tired of waiting for him and is hellbent on not giving into him?

Review by FS Meurinne

As this being her first book. Elena dis an amazing job. Greg is a great character, a man that struggles to trust everyone after he discovered his wife with his best gay friend. His issues not only got him to become a reserved guy but also to finding himself in a path where he needs to find himself back in order to get to open his heart to a woman that has certainly traspassed the walls he had built around his heart.

This story also has steaming hot scenes, with plenty sexual tension that will keep the reader wanting to keep on reading. I'm looking forward for what Elena will write next.






The Ferro Family Series by D.H. Ward



The Arrangement 1 (Sean Ferro) 

FML is becoming Avery's motto. Just when she doesn't think things could get any worse, they do. When her car stalls out at a busy intersection and she gets out to check under the hood, a guy steals her car. Armed with a dress and a pair of Chucks, Avery runs after the thief. When a hot stranger offers to help, she can't say no. That's how Avery meets Sean Ferro, the totally sexy, totally damaged guy with more secrets than she has time for. 

Avery doesn't have time for anything anymore. Her is life falling apart and it's not just the car. It's everything, and it doesn't matter how tightly she tries to hold on, there's nothing left to hold on to. With the sudden death of her parents, it's only a matter of months until Avery's shot at college is gone, and she's living in a cardboard box. Other students have their families to rely on when things get bad. Avery has no one. 

But there's one option, one incredibly sexy, morally devoid, option. If Avery takes a job as a call girl, one guy could save her. One client. One time. She just has to say yes.




The Arrangement 2 (Sean Ferro) 

Avery's life is slipping between her fingers. Everything that she worked to achieve will be gone if she doesn't take this job. The idea of being a call girl doesn't appeal to Avery, but her first client does. Sean is too difficult to resist. This might be the opportunity to fix her finances and find love. She just has to have enough guts to go through with it.




The Arrangement 3 (Sean Ferro) 

Sex isn't love, but it feels like it--that is until Sean bolts from the room. For a moment, everything seemed fine. Avery's life didn't feel so impossible. She got the guy and the money, but then everything shifts. The line between reality and fantasy gets hazy. It's impossible to know if her feelings are genuine or just an illusion. 

To make matters worse something from Sean's past surfaces. Devastated, Avery realizes that Sean isn't the guy that she thought he was. Avery's heart can't take another loss and this time, it looks like she's going to lose everything.




The Arrangement 4 (Sean Ferro)

Avery finds out too late that her heart isn’t cut out to be a call girl. She’s too attracted to Sean. Avery doesn’t just want Sean’s body, she wants his heart. When he sent her away, Avery was devastated. Trying to pick up the pieces is hard, especially since she can’t get another job. 

Caught in an impossible position with her employer, everything hinges on making this next client happy, but things don’t go as they should. To make matters worse, Sean shows up at the worst time. Avery dreams of a chance to start over, to erase Sean from her life forever and leave her old life behind. But, it’s beginning to look more and more like just a dream.




The Arrangement 5 (Sean Ferro) 

Avery’s emotions are fried, but she doesn’t have to think twice about her BFFs Marty and Mel. They mean everything to her. They’re the family she doesn’t have. In a crisis, they’re the people to have by her side, and God knows this is a crisis. Friends like that are worth their weight in gold. 

If only things with Sean were so simple. Regret is something that is impossible to subdue. There are still things to be said, things to do. Life is too short to live in the past, but when Avery wakes up at the hospital she finds that her world has changed. 




The Arrangement 6 (Sean Ferro) 

Just as Avery thinks she finds balance with her position as a call girl and her relationship with Sean, everything changes. The relationships that she has depended on are suddenly gone. After years of friendship, Avery is forced to face the cold hard truth--there is no place for feelings in this kind of business.




The Arrangement 7 (Sean Ferro) 

When Avery learns Sean's dark secret, everything changes. His confession blindsides her. Sean has a shady past, she knew that from the beginning, but this is so much worse than she thought. There's a dangerous side to Sean. It's alluring and frightening at the same time. Avery has to decide if love can overcome anything or if she should protect her heart.





The Arrangement 8 (Sean Ferro) 

Nothing ever goes the way it should. Marty is barely a friend any more, and the roommate from hell is doing Naked Guy on my couch again. It's bad enough that it feels like my life is coming apart at the seams. There's one man that has held it together for the past few weeks, but things change. All it takes is a few words and everything shatters.




The Arrangement 9 (Sean Ferro) 

When Avery finds out that the cowboy who requested her services for the night is Marty, things take an unexpected turn. If Avery declines her friend, she'll be in trouble with Miss Black, but if she accepts--this could mean a new, normal relationship and saying farewell to Sean forever.

Review by FS Meurinne 

When I received this ARC I was beyond excited. This series have become a must for me. Even though I wished each book in The Arrangement Series where longer, I'm happy that I can still read them the author is committed and deliver the new book in a reasonable time that would allow the readers not to go insane.

Even though I started with Damaged, I was curious as how the author managed to create a series about the Ferro brothers, giving us a greater insight into their world. This part of the series tell the story about Sean Ferro and his not so normal relationship with Avery. This book is no exception, Avery is still trying to find her way in a world that is not for everyone, trying her hardest to figure out her relationship with Sean, if it can be called that. I don't want to give any spoilers away, but I will say this book is a roller coster of emotions, there will be times you want to strangle some characters to make them see, you will be conflicted with the relationship that has all readers hanging and if this book is not enough, well good news there is a book 10 coming up next.

Make sure you read Damaged, the story of Peter Ferro and pre-order Stripped, the story of Jonathan Ferro.

H.M. Ward and myself have arranged a surprise for the readers. I'll be offering a Damaged audible audiobook giveaway in this website in the Giveaway Page (link at the top), so make sure you subscribe and check in regularly so you don't miss it!




Damaged (Peter Ferro)

Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word. 

Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it--any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life. 

Peter is beyond beautiful with his sexy blue eyes, dark hair, and toned body. Add in his charming wit and Peter is everything Sidney ever wanted in a man, but when things get hot and heavy Peter shows her the door. Sidney takes the walk of shame and leaves. It's the end of the worst blind date ever. Her life couldn't possibly reach higher levels of suckage, but it does. 

The next morning everything comes crashing down. The insanely hot guy from last night, the one that saw her half naked, is teaching at the front of the class room.




Damaged 2 (Peter Ferro)

Home isn't supposed to be dangerous, but for Sidney it is. Returning home means that she has to face her past.

It's a chance to set things right. 

What Sidney doesn't realize is that she's dragging Peter into a collision course with his past. Peter must deal with the demons haunting him if he wants to move forward with Sidney.

When a beautiful woman and a hot bodyguard come together to battle bad guys, each other, and their own feelings, someone’s bound to let their guard down. 

Review by FS Meurinne 

I received a copy of this amazing story, and after just reading the summary I was already intrigued with the story and looking forward to reading it. 

The story is about Chase Murphy, who works for CEP, New York City’s top-rated security agency, who is hired as a bodyguard to protect Julia Cooke, only daughter of one New York’s wealthiest man, Allen Cooke. Whom does Julia see as a total asshole dad, making Julia think that money is more important than anything else including her. 

As the story develops, you find that Julia has been attracted to Chase for a couple of years now, but haven’t found a way into his life. Meanwhile Chase, has been putting a face in order to deceive Julia’s advances in order to keep up his job. Loosing it will mean dropping law school, and that is not an option. Well, not until one incident that results in Julia starting to find cracks inside Chase’s wall and ultimately his heart. 

But this story is not only about two young adults falling for each other, the sexual tension that the author was able to build and project not only kept the readers entailed but also helped the characters to develop and grow. The author was awesome enough to give us different point of views, making this story way more interesting as you find out what all the characters are going through, specially Julia and Chase. Making them a couple that will be on your mind for a long time. On the other hand, you get mysterious kidnappings of New York’s wealthiest family members. Young adults are being taken hostages and never returning alive. Meanwhile Julia is being a bit na├»ve about everything that is going around, making it more difficult to Chase to keep Julia safe, which is his priority in his job and heart. 

You will not be disappointed, as there is a great plot, with two characters that you’ll fall in love with and yes, there is great sex in it. I’m sure all readers will be left wanting more of them and so it is good news this is only the first book in the series. Stand by and wait for the next. 

Being Chased is being offered for free on Amazon, so make sure you grab it now.

Review by FS Meurinne

When I received the ARC copy for another Shay Savage book, I was so excited to be able to read it before it was released. Shay as always blowed up my mind with this. I loved Otherwise Alone, Surviving Raine is one of my all time favorite Shay Savage story, but with this sequel this story has a new place in my heart. I can assure everyone that hasn't read anything by Shay Savage that you will love her hands down, and for those who have, let's just bet you will be reading this as well. I will always respect authors and Shay is not only a great one but a friend I hope to keep forever. Shay, you nail it with this book!



Otherwise Alone by Shay Savage


Lieutenant Evan Arden sits in a shack in the middle of nowhere, waiting for orders that will send him back home - if he ever gets them. Other than his loyal Great Pyrenees, there's no one around to break up the monotony. The tedium is excruciating, but it is suddenly interrupted when a young woman stumbles up his path. 

He has two choices - pick her off from a distance with his trusty sniper-rifle, or dare let her approach his cabin and enter his life. 

Why not? It's been ages, and he is otherwise alone...

Great story as always.

Surviving Raine by Shay Savage


As the captain of a schooner catering to the elite on the Caribbean Seas, Sebastian Stark does his best to avoid any human encounters. Interacting with people isn’t his thing, and he prefers the company of a bottle of vodka, a shot glass, and maybe a whore. There’s no doubt he’s hiding from a checkered past, but he does well keeping everything to himself… 

…until the night his schooner capsizes, and he’s stuck on a life raft with one of the passengers. 

Raine’s young, she’s cute, and Bastian would probably be into her if he wasn’t suffering from alcohol withdrawal. As the days pass, DTs, starvation, and dehydration become the norm. Even the most closed person starts to open up when he thinks he’s going to die, but when she realizes their traumatic pasts are connected, it’s no longer the elements that have Bastian concerned. 

He has no idea how he’s going to Survive Raine.

Review by FS Meurinne

Shay as always has come up with another great story. This story will keep you on a roller coaster that you won't want it to stop. The chemistry between the protagonists Sebastian an Raine is awesome, their interaction is quite different from anything you've read before. Imagine a guy trying to avoid any human encounters, suffering from starvation, dehydration and alcohol withdrawled stranded on an island with no other than a young girl. Getting Bastian to open up an Raine to help him so they can both survive is not an easy task but Shay nail this story brilliantly. I'm looking forward for a sequel as it's a story you would never forget and will always look forward for more.
