About the author:

T. K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a producer / attorney by trade. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband).

When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character from her debut novel, “A Beautiful Mess,” she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

So here are some teaser picks from “A Beautiful Mess”

Book Trailer

Blurb:

Things are starting to heat up in Atlanta, or at least in Jane’s celibate life of two years. On the two year anniversary of her nasty split between her and her ex, Jane’s friends, Molly – class “A” filthy mouth – and Albert – flamboyant dresser extraordinaire – decide it’s high time Jane drops the conservative persona, let loose and start to have some fun once again.

Brady Matthews, Atlanta Braves first baseman and well known through the media as Atlanta’s gigolo, thought he was just taking his new teammate, Michael Banks, out on the town. Little did he know Michael’s friend from college, Jane, was going to show up at their table and turn his world upside down.

When Brady meets Jane, he is instantly attracted to Jane’s innocence and inner sex kitten but the last thing she wants is to be thrown into another relationship with such a publicly known man-whore especially after her heart was broken so devastatingly. Brady makes it his mission to win Jane over and make her see him as the man he actually is, not the way the media perceives him. But it is not that simple. Wedding plans, spring training, ex’s, old college friends, the paparazzi and gossip magazines seem to keep getting in the way of Brady’s goal to earn Jane’s heart.

Caught Looking goes through the love lives of Jane, Brady and their group of friends fighting the hardships of cheating, trusting, losing love and trying to find it once again. In one of America’s hottest cities, the gang heats up the sheets while their lives entangle together causing heartache, suffering through loss and finding love….hopefully.

Excerpt:

He was all man, definitely over six feet tall, pure muscle but not bulky by any means, dark brown hair, green eyes that could melt any heart and an amazing tan that didn’t stop where his jersey met his skin. Thanks to GQ she knew exactly what he looked like under his uniform. She might have once or twice looked at his player profile but he was mostly known outside the sports world for his celebrity girlfriends and flings. He was a little bit of a player but with those muscles and eyes, he had the right to be.

My Review:

Holy HOTNESS from HELL.

Well I just…..I really don’t know where to start with this book!

Seriously…..

First I need to thank Meghan for providing me with an ARC copy of this  book to read and review for this blog tour.

Secondly!..I completely feel lost. I feel like my hearts been dragged out, boiled, knifed, fed to the wolves and stitched back together again, talk about emotionally draining.

This book is written perfectly, Megahn gives us multiple POV’s so we know where everyone is thinking at any one point in this book, as there is ALOT of action going on.

This book definitely aint your happy-go-lucky romance, SHIT hits the fan, betrayal comes in the biggest of forms, new friendships bloom, love finds its way back, and grief sneaks up on us like the devil in disguise!

Literally at the end I was in balls of tears, I don’t think I’ve cried so much whilst reading a book 😦

This is the first book I have read by this author, and YOU Missy, have astounded me by your work. I will DEFINITELY be keeping a VERY close eye on you 🙂

P.S I CAN NOT WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON THE 2nd BOOK “PLAYING THE FIELD”

P.S.S I do hope Molly gets her HEA! ❤ Heartbroken

Author Bio:

When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn’t take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch.

It wasn’t until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books, I came across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven’t turned back since.

You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with anticipation.

​I am currently residing in beautiful Colorado Springs where the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five, four-legged children.

Blog Tour On The 12th Date of Christmas By Nikki Lynn Barrett

On The 12 Date tour Banner II

On The 12th Date of Christmas

Blurb:

After being mugged, Robin Sorenson is left shaken and her spirit in humanity broken. Worse, she’s not sure how to deal with the new anxieties or who to confide in since she’s always preached to pick oneself up and move on. Yeah, she’s been the go to girl when anyone’s had problems.
Christmas is coming, and her belief in magic and miracles has faded.

Then Jonas comes back.

Jonas Aimes made a mistake. A big one, when he walked away from Robin a year earlier. He’d loved her, always had and still does, but his desire to please his aging and strict parents took precedence. Back from the overseas internship they’d struggled to get him in, he plans on winning Robin back. What he didn’t count on was discovering the shell of the vivacious woman he’d loved.

Broken.

Remembering her love of Christmas, Jonas pulls the holiday heartstrings. What? All is fair and love and war. Right?

Twelve days, Twelve Dates.

Robin is speechless when Jonas not only refuses to leave her alone, but dares her to accept his cheesy holiday themed challenge. Twelve dates to give him a chance to prove he loves her and is never leaving her again.

But in the season known for miracles can Robin find the magic needed to open her heart and faith once more…or will she forever wonder about the ghost of the Christmas past that could have been?

My Review:

First I would like to thank the author for providing me with an ARC copy of this book to read and review for this blog tour ❤ Much Loveage

I love to read Christmas romances towards the said joyful time of the year, it brings joy, happiness, love and family and makes me go all warm and fuzzy.

Although this is a hearty Christmas romance, it’s still full of anger, pain, suspense, family betrayal, loved one mistrust.! Definitely kept me on my toes and wanting to not put my kindle down, so I could get to the bottom of the story 🙂

Jonas realises he messed up big time letting his family come between the love he had for Robin a few months back. He is back now, more determined than ever to win back his girl, but nothing prepared him for what was in store for him.

Nothing prepared him to find Robin the way she is.

After being mugged Robin has no Christmas spirit left to give and she certainly doesn’t want to receive any back, but when a past flame re-enters her world determined to get the “old” Robin back, can she keep pushing her loved ones away?

Can she carry on being without the love of her life?

I loved Ben, he is so adorable for an 8 year old boy. Clearly matured well and definitely acts older than her is.

Excerpt:

“You hit Eric’s car?” Oh boy, no wonder Jonas sounded so frustrated. Eric wasn’t going to let this go easily, especially since they’d seen him with another woman. 

No wonder Cheyenne and Jacob worried so much! 

No doubt he had to have made some sort of comment to one of them.

“Yeah. I swear I checked when I backed out! He really came out of nowhere.” Jonas sounded defensive.

“Hey, I believe you,” Robin said softly, hoping he’d calm down.

“Sorry. I’m just rattled I guess. He gives me the creeps and I never get that way about someone without good reason

I’ve met him twice and his vibes are never good. You’re there alone with the kids? 

You have the door locked, right?”

“Yes Mom,” she joked, but she knew he just had her best interest at heart. 

“Sorry. I know you’re only looking out for me.Of course I locked the doors. 

Right after Cheyenne and Jacob left.”

“That’s good. Hey­”

They both were startled by a loud banging sound.

“What was that noise?” Jonas asked. Robin heard the alarm in his voice.

Her heart raced faster as she went to inspect. It sounded like someone was at the front door. “I’m not sure.” The pounding got louder. She froze in the living room, 

the memories flooding back of a few months ago. The same sound, the same fear returned. 

Her hands shook and she dropped the phone. Still numb, she managed to pick it up and put it back to her ear. 

Jonas’s voice on the other end kept repeating the same question.

“Robin? Talk to me! What’s going on?” She heard him swear under his breath.

“I­” She choked on her words. “I think I’m having an anxiety attack. It reminds me of­”

“It’s okay. I’m on my way. I’m not too far from you. Just stay as calm as possible and don’t answer the door. 

Stay on the phone with me. I’ll be there right away and then we’ll call Cheyenne and Jacob. Just keep talking to me, okay? 

Do you know who’s at the door?”

“No. I just­ the pounding, the eerie feeling. It reminds me­” she stuttered. God, she was so cold all of a sudden. 

Words formed in her throat, but she couldn’t get them out.

The knocking continued. Then yelling. Damn it, that sounded like Eric. “Jonas? I think it’s Eric.”

Then the knocking began at the window. The shades were drawn, the curtains closed, 

but he had to have seen the light.

“I know someone’s in there! Don’t ignore me!” He sounded pissed and slightly drunk. When would it ever end? 

Why did he have to keep hounding everyone? It wasn’t like he had his son’s best interest at heart. 

He had another child with Petra and he still had to come over here to stir up trouble. Stupid bastard!

“Damn it. Okay, I’m hurrying. Almost there, baby.”

“Don’t get into an accident, Jonas.” She sat huddled on the floor. Her entire body tensed and she was shaking.

“When I get close, I’m going to hang up with you. You call Cheyenne or Jacob. 

Let them know what’s going on and if I have to, I’ll call the cops.

I don’t know what this guy is up to, but I can’t imagine it being good.”

Whatever Eric wanted, he must have decided to give up. That was very unlike him. The knocking stopped,

then Robin heard the sound of an engine. Either Jonas had arrived, or Eric had left. “Did you pull up?” 

Her voice came out in a quiet squeak. Her leg muscles relaxed first, and she felt the tension leave her 

body just slightly.

“No, I’m not there yet. Turning down the street now. Oh crap! Someone just peeled out like an idiot. Whoa.”

“I think he left. He gave up,” Robin whispered. Why she felt the need to talk so quietly, she didn’t know.

“I’m pulling up now. I don’t see him. I bet that was him that left. I’m coming to the door. Let me in, please. 

I need to make sure you’re okay, because you don’t sound like it. If you want to call Cheyenne and Jacob still,

we will, or I can stay with you until they come home.”

Robin didn’t want to ruin their evening, but she knew Cheyenne would freak if she tried to call and heard

Robin’s distress. She tried to make her legs work to get to the door, but they were weak and almost gave out on her. 

Fumbling with the lock and the handle, Robin forced her shaky hand to get the door open.

 Her mouth went dry and she nearly choked on air, but the sight of Jonas on the other side of the wrought iron door gave her a sense of peace. She unlocked that door as well and he immediately rushed in and reached for her.

She collapsed in his embrace.

Blurb: 

The magic of Christmas has been lost to Jacob Winston. At the suggestion of his ill sister, Jacob takes a job as a Secret Santa at the mall, hoping to restore his Christmas spirit. Even that doesn’t seem to work, until a special little boy ambles up to make a very special wish…

Cheyenne Jensen is struggling to raise her two kids without the help of her ex-husband who refuses to acknowledge his daughter’s existence and doesn’t provide for the son he does. This Christmas is shaping up to be as heartbreaking as the last, until her son Ben’s kind actions lead a stranger to them.

Ah, but it’s Christmas time and the magic has begun.

When Jacob and Cheyenne meet, neither can deny their immediate attraction to one another. As situations arise that require they spend more time together, their feelings grow stronger and stronger.

With Christmas fast approaching, the pair learn what matters most in life.

Now, if only they could ditch the ghost of Christmases past.

Maybe this holiday will bring some wishes come true- for everyone after all.

My Review:

Another magical Christmas romance, This is the beginning of the story. A HUGE thank you to Nikki for providing me with an ARC copy of this to read and review for this tour.

I kind of did things backwords with this series. I read “On the 12th Date Of Christmas” first and this book second. DUH! So I knew that Cheyenne and Jacob got together .

This though showed me how two lost souls came together during hard times at Christmas. With everything going on they still managed to fit in a little Christmas love and spirit.

As I mentioned in my review for “On The 12th Date Of Christmas” I fell in love with Ben’s character. In this book, he’s so much more adorable, soo strong for a little boy who doesn’t have a permanent father figure in his life, that is until Jacob shows up.

Cheyenne is a little dubious with letting another man into her life, after the hell she went through with the TWAT of an ex, but like any other women in the same situation, she deserves happiness and a shot at love.

With issues of his own Jacob is a little hesitant to let love in. With the sickness going on in his family, can he be there for Cheyenne and her kids. Can he give himself to her wholly?

Like I said in the beginning, another great Christmas read, I definitely enjoyed this story as well as Robin and Jonas’s story 🙂

Great work yet again from Nikki, and I look forward to future books 🙂

Blog Blitz – All For Allie (Shaken #1.5) By J Bailes

image01

Please read Shattered and Shaken (book 1) prior to All for Allie (1.5) 

Synopsis

Mature audience only 18+ 

Walking away from her was the hardest decision I ever made. Leaving her without an explanation broke us both. Our hearts have been left shattered. I could make excuses. I could lay the blame on others, but still I made the decision. I had to. It was the only way to protect the both of them.

After all of Allie’s loss, my thought was only on her and her happiness. On her love and need for her big brother. I was replaceable, Kyle wasn’t. I wouldn’t allow him to crush her heart with his death. I knew I had to follow him. I would throw myself on top of bombs, in front of bullets, whatever it took to get him home to her, alive. There are two sides to every story, and you’ve only heard one. Don’t be so quick to judge; I hate myself for what I’ve done. But all that I did, it was all for Allie.

Synopsis

18+ Mature Audience Only

Allie Anderson has encountered more heartache than any one person deserves. She’s lost her father to cancer, her brother to war, and the love of her life –Wyatt – took her most prized possession and vanished without a trace. She’s left crushed and heart-broken.

Blake, Allie’s best friend, is everything she needs; he’d give her the moon if she asked for it, but there’s one problem – he wants Allie entirely. How can Allie give herself to anyone when she’s not sure there’s enough left of her heart to give away?

Allie’s life begins to fall into place. Her heart begins to heal. Being happy is no longer a foreign emotion. That is until the man who broke her years ago returns, shattering her fragile heart all over again.
Allie soon discovers that hearts are like broken glass; you can put it back together again, but it will never be the same.
