Thirst by R P Channing Cover

~ Kira Sutherland ~

After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her ‘boyfriend’), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated…), and being labeled as having ‘issues’ in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:

1) Continue her ‘therapy’ (where she’s told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often…)


2) Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for “Crazies and Convicts” (as the social media sites call them.)

She chooses the latter…

~ Cory Rand ~

Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother’s best friend…sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.

Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual – he has a weakness) he’s left with two choices:

1) Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks…)


2) Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he’ll get an education.

He chooses the latter…

It’s at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.

Things he’s always ignored.

Until now.

The Puppy Eyes

My life was perfect.

I had the perfect shoes and the perfect friends and I lived in the perfect house. My nails were perfect and my hair was perfect (except on Sundays, it was always windy on Sundays) and I had the perfect clothes. My lips were a perfect red and my hair perfectly straight. My eyeshadow was perfect, my hips were…okay, and my waist…well…also okay. Nothing was wrong in my life.

But then there was Jack.

Jack was a problem.

He needed to go. I mean, when you’re dead, you’re dead! I had told him this endlessly. Somehow, Jack didn’t get it. I mean, I felt sorry for the guy. Sure. Being stuck between this life and the next. But just because I found him, does that mean I needed to keep him?

I think not!

Sadly, when Jack got that look in his eyes, that weary, almost teary (if his tear-ducts worked) look, I melted. I just couldn’t send him away. Not even Jack knew where he would go after he died.

Would he, like, die? As in — dead, nada, kaput, finito, gone, no more? Bye bye, sayonara, ciao, hasta la vista baby and all that?

I couldn’t have that on my conscience. No way.

I lay on my bed, wondering what to do about him. “Jaaaaaaack,” I hollered.


Still no answer.



His eyes rolled down to the ground. He was making those puppy eyes again. “Jack, I told you not to do that. I told you not to play on my sympathies.”

His puppy eyes became worse.

His skin was gray and, well, dead.

“Oh, brother,” I said. “I have to do something about you. If mom finds out I have another ‘imaginary friend’ — at my age — well, I’d die of embarrassment. But, like, really die. Not like you.” I wondered about this. Would I die? Was Jack a freak accident, or did all people live on like him? Think of the cemeteries…

The idea excited me somewhat.

What would you have me do, Miss Kira?

“Knock off the Miss Kira crap. I told you it’s just Kira.”

Yes, Miss Kira.

The dead. There’s just no reasoning.

“Fine, Miss Kira it is then.” Rover barked like a lunatic in the garden. No one else might be able to see Jack, but I was sure my dog could.

“I have to do something about this,” I mumbled.

Author Bio

R P Channing started writing three years ago, but never published anything even after churning out over a million words of fiction. Thirst: Blood of my Blood is the first book he dared to publish. When asked why, he said, “Because it’s the first thing I wrote that my wife actually enjoyed reading.” When not hammering away (most literally) at his keyboard, he can be found buried in a book, reading anything from romance to horror to young adult to non-fiction to comedy.

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Fears and Scars (Damaged Hearts #2) by Emily Krat

Fears and Scars (Damaged Hearts #2)


One lie can destroy everything. What will a pile of them do?

A chance encounter changed everything for Ryan and Liz. Five months later, they have an all-consuming love, a deep emotional bond, an explosive sexual chemistry, and a newfound trust. They’re engaged and on the way to their happily ever after.
The only problem is a secret from Elizabeth’s past that Ryan has been hiding.
The truth will come out. Will it set Ryan and Liz free or break them apart and destroy their dreams?
Life challenges every relationship. Ryan and Liz will learn that secrets aren’t their only problem.

“We’re strong. We’ll survive this. We can survive anything.” – Ryan.

My Review:
Firstly I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the lovely Emily for kindly providing me with a copy of “Fears and Scars” to read and review.
I can’t remember how many times my heart broke whilst reading this, I also think I’ve over emotional because I practically cried through the whole thing…I do have the flu so I blame this for being hormonal and tanked up on medication to make me feel this way 😀 haha
I loved how the story picked up where it left off, they both have an undeniable connection, their love is so strong….or so they think….
The story truly does  captures just how deep their feelings go and how far they’re willing to go to protect one another.
Liz is finally happy and ready to plan her future but once again life throws a curve ball into the works
Ryan is desperate to love and protect Liz from any more hurt, Yet in doing so he risks losing the one thing he can’t live without, her love.
An emotional train wreck is the only way to describe the way this book makes you feel.
Two perfectly broken souls find the path of redemption together but can they resist the temptation of causing  further heartbreak along the way?
Fearing to trust, fearing to love only causes them anguish and pain and will only result in leaving scars.
“Let me chase away all your fears about us.
Let me kiss all the scars I left on your heart.”
Trust me, you will love this instalment. I’m being vague so I don’t spoil the story.
One thing for sure is, you will fall back in love with this couple.

Book Excerpt

I had only ever been with one man. And that man was my everything. Jay had way more experience in that department than I did and the kinds of experience he probably enjoyed would be far more than anything I would even know – let alone do.  Images begin flashing of the glamorous and sometimes sleazy looking woman. The remarks that Chris made about me going to him for seconds!

Oh god…

My whole body begins to tense as I feel Jays mouth kiss me gently behind my ear, surging the tremors to waves of anxiety.

“You don’t have to be scared of me. With me. I will take care of you. Always.”

Oh my.

His warm breath cascades over my skin and my body fights internally, with wanting to leap and wanting to hide. As the inner struggle continues with Jay teasing my skin with his seductive caress, a loud clatter behind me is enough to jump me from my feet.

I squeal.

About the Author:

From the earliest age I was a born storyteller.
Ask my parents and they will tell you I had a gift for making a simple event seem like an elaborate one. Purposely? No. Innocently? Yes. It was my imaginary world that initially led me to believe I wanted to be an actor. All of that role playing and living in fantasy… it was an obvious direction for me. However, becoming quite uncomfortable with the limelight quickly saw that dream diminish.
Over the years I turned my world of fantasy into stories, and eventually began writing them down. Before I knew it, ‘Cut’ had been completed.

Expected Release Date:

March 2016


What’s it about?

The Debt Collector

I pay my debts, and I expect others to.

I was raised in the slums of London, I knew nothing of privilege. My father was murdered when I was seventeen. Morty figured my father’s passing meant I would automatically take on dad’s debts. I refused.

And I paid for that refusal.

So did my sister.

So now I fight. All I know how to do is fight. The best cash is in the states, so that’s where I am now. A big fish called Vito came along offering me a “favor” when I arrived.

Another debt.

I paid for that one too.

I knew Kyla Hensley would be trouble when I met her. But I wanted her. I could see through the falsehood of her wannabe-slutty clothes and her sexy legs. So I chased her.

Besides, trouble is my middle name.

Kyla Hensley

I was brought up in privilege, but I lacked everything else. My father is a business tycoon who buys and sells and doesn’t care who gets rolled over in the process.

I never knew my mother, and all I have of her is a photo with a note scrawled on the back in French saying “I’m sorry.” The only Female Figure I had growing up is my dad’s wife who is a bleach blond with seven boob jobs. We never bonded.

I drink. I party. I meet guys.

But I wasn’t always like that.

I’ve had a string of lovers in the last few years, the worst and most recent of which was Vince Somerset. My best friend Vera was dating a guy called Rory Cansoom who is the opposite of Vince in so many ways, and yet so the same.

She and I hit the road for the summer, getting away from the two college psychos and just trying to have some fun.

But there’s a funny thing about trouble, the more you run from it, the more it finds you.

Which is when I met the Debt Collector.

It was only supposed to be sex. He made that clear. I made that clear.

That’s all it was supposed to be.

I never expected to fall in love. I never expected to fall so deeply, madly, uncomfortably in love with a man who is wrong, so wrong for me.

And yet…so unbelievably right.

~*~ Blog Tour & Review ~*~ The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn

We’re celebrating the release of THE MOTHER ROAD by Meghan Quinn!
THE MOTHER ROAD by Meghan Quinn
NA Romantic Comedy
Release date: January 12, 2016
Cover Designed by: Meghan Quinn


Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.
It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.
What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.

My Review:

Firstly I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the lovely Quinn for kindly providing me with a copy of “The Mother Road” to read and review.

I absolutely FLOVE Quinn’s work and I can’t seem to get enough of them…and of course her…I’ll even be honest in saying I have an author “Boner” for her 😀

Anyway……The Mother Road is a totally laugh-out-loud read that will rock your socks off from the very beginning.

I know my review wont be good enough to describe what I have just read, it would never give this the justice and appraise it so deservingly warrants. In all honesty this was the most hilarious book I’ve read in a long time!

The young and b-e-a-utiful Marley McMann  grew up as a tomboy on a farm in New York. Now she’s a California girl running a beauty blog.

What happens when you mix the past and the present together?

Marley gets talked into going on “one more road trip” with her brother who is due to be married soon and her father in the memory of their mother who had died before the family could complete their road trip, route 66 was the last one….oh and if you mix one helluva hunk with junk-his-in-trunk *wink wink* then we’ve got ourselves one helluva CRAZY road-trip the’re all about to embark on…..

An RV full of sexual tension, out-of-this-world pranks and some of the most heart-touching moments…..YEP, all of that in this one little book, you should totally check it out if you don’t believe me!

I laughed a lot, I also cried. I absolutely FLOVED this book.

In my opinion this is probably Quinn’s funniest book to date.


About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

~*~ New Release & Review ~*~ Tiny Glitches By Rebecca Chastain

Tiny Glitches

Amazon (US): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B017Z9NROY

Amazon (everywhere else): http://smarturl.it/TinyGlitches


Life isn’t exactly normal for Eva Parker: the stronger Eva’s emotions, the faster nearby electrical devices die. Eva can’t have a cell phone, use a computer, or be in a car for more than a few minutes without killing it. Dealing with her electricity-killing curse makes living in modern-day Los Angeles complicated enough for Eva—and that was before she was blackmailed into hiding a stolen baby elephant and partnered with Hudson, a sexy electrical engineer Eva just met.

Dodging repeated attempts on her life made by ruthless corporations hunting the elephant is easier for Eva than quelling her growing affection for Hudson, and while protecting an elephant is hard, controlling her curse is a lot harder. However, Eva must do both, because if she lets her emotions free and falls in love with Hudson, neither of them will survive.

Enchanting and quirky, Tiny Glitches fuses electrifying romance and high-voltage suspense in a rollicking adventure.

My Review:

Firstly I would like to kindly thank this lovely author for being kind enough to provide me with a copy of “Tiny Glitches” to read and review.

I love it when you come across hidden and great gems like this, and I’m grateful for the opportunity, this will be my first time in reading anything by the lovely Chastain, but I do look forward to read more from her in the future….*fingers crossed*

Living with a curse can be torture, Eva knows this first hand; especially since she has one that involves electrical currents. It seems Eva drains energy from anything electrical that she is anywhere near, so yeah, this can be a deadly curse not only to herself but those around her.

Hudson; now where to start with this guy….I was always left wondering will they, or won’t they. I’m totally rooting though….

This book definitely has a complex plot with many threads weaved into the tiny minuscules of the writing. It has mystery & suspense as Eva and Hudson try to figure out why Eva was targeted to take care of a creature from the very beginning.

With some unlikely help and a hunky Hudson, Eva just may be able to save herself and the possible downfall of society, that’s if she can stay out of trouble long enough though…..

I’m not sure on what I was expecting BUT it worked and I FLOVED it! Chastain totally changed things up. At times it was totally mind blowing, in a unexplainable confusing way, but I don’t want to say anything more otherwise I’ll end up giving parts away, and we don’t want that.

Be prepared to become totally engrossed in this beautifully written book and the reader is only left with only 1 question….. is this a series or a standalone novel
