You wouldn’t think dying in the place
where death rules would change the fate
of the world, would you? Well it did. I died,
and now everything is upside down.

When Eden died in the Realm of Death, unbeknownst to everyone, her death changed the world. When her lifeless body is found by her father, Lakyn and brought back to the Michaelite Sanctuary, everyone thinks she is just suffering from the effects of the Death Blossom.

Little do they know, Eden is actually stuck inside her own alternative reality—one where she’s married to Asher, and all the souls of the newly dead have been spat out of the death realm.

Now Eden must race against the clock, and figure out what is going on with the souls including her own, all before she wakes up. The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of one sixteen- year old half demon, half angel girl.

Will it be too late? Or will Eden’s soul linger
in the Garden of Death for eternity?

The highly anticipated sequel to the bestselling
The Garden of Eden

Guarding Angel #Review @Saboviec

Guardian angel Enael can’t seem to keep her human Wards in check. They’re the ones who choose their paths before reincarnating—she’s just there to help make sure they stay on track. But it’s not as easy as it might look.

When she meets and falls in love with charismatic Kaspen, a fellow Guardian, Enael’s feelings about Heaven, Hell, demons, and the life she’s known are turned upside down. Worse, angel-turned-demon Yasva, Kaspen’s former love, still holds him in her clutches. Even as Yasva works toward obtaining complete control of Earth, she taunts and haunts Kaspen’s and Enael’s lives.

Now Enael is forced to face her past (which is centuries long and bursting with secrets), her present (which is terribly unfulfilling and full of questions), and her future (which becomes more uncertain as time passes). Armed with a newfound love and fear of losing it all, she must figure out how to save the world—-and the angel she loves. Which side will win? Who will Kaspen choose? Will Heaven and Earth continue to exist, or will everything go to Hell?

Enael is just trying to guard her wards and move to becoming a Keeper of the Books of Life. That is, until she meets Kaspen, a charismatic Guardian that shows her that there’s more to her existence. She, in turn, realizes that there’s more to Kaspen then meets her eye. She is more drawn to him than anyone before him, but her own past keeps her from letting him in. When Enael is introduced to Yasva, Kaspen’s former lover, she is thrown into a love triangle so dangerous that it is unknown if she and Kaspen will survive. She discovers that she must give up more than she bargained for to save herself and the angel that she loves. Guarding Angel is a wonderful story laced with love, loss, regret and salvation. Your knowledge of Heaven and Hell, Angels and Demons will forever be changed after reading this work. I know I can’t wait for the next one!

Devil's Bitch #Review @delenasilverfox

Norelia, Imperial heir and zealous second-in-command of the Endless Army, is cornered by a wager against her father, the Emperor. The stakes? To marry the winner of the next Summer Games in order to ensure the continuation of the Imperial line.

Confident she will win the Games and the wager, she is devastated when a mysterious contender named Reoth defeats her and claims not only the title of Champion, but claims Norelia as well. A misplaced note reveals Reoth and her father placed wagers on Reoth's ability to "tame" her, proving it was all a game after all.

When her father is killed in a surprise invasion, the Empire stands on the brink of war and Norelia is thrust into the center of it with Reoth, a man she'd sooner kill than trust. As Reoth admits knowledge regarding who is behind this invasion, Norelia must determine where his true allegiance lies before the Empire, and her heart, are destroyed forever.
This book was sexy and had just the right amount of action to go with it. Norelia was a great and strong heroine and I loved her she is the perfect match for the hero Reoth who is just as strong and stubborn as she is.

“Remember the day on the river when we went tubing a few summers back?”

Sara shifted the gear from reverse to forward, eyes darting over cars and trucks in the immediate vicinity. “Yes. What about it?” She stalled at the stop sign, not wanting to go at the same time another vehicle intended to. A horn honked and she jumped, glancing in the rearview mirror at the large white truck behind her.

“I think it’s your turn to go,” he said dryly.

The truck crept forward. Lincoln laughed, which caused her face to burn, but Sara ignored him, concentrating on driving.

“Remember how Cole was determined to knock us off the tube?”

The sun was burning down on them. The inner tube bobbed up and down in the small waves made by other boats, splashing warm brown river water on her. Sara smelled seaweed and sand, the faint scent of fish in the air. She was on her stomach, one arm under Lincoln’s hard chest, the other pulled toward her with her and Lincoln’s arms crisscrossed over each other’s, both hands locked on the handles. Her lifejacket dug into her ribs, slightly raised over her shoulders from the way she was laying.

Water glistened down his face as he turned his head to grin at her, his gray eyes sparkling silver in the sunlight. “Ready?”

Sara glanced up at the white and green pontoon boat and saw Cole watching her with a certain gleam in his crystal blue eyes. His light brown hair was streaked with gold from the sun, his body tanned and toned from working outdoors on an almost daily basis. A slow smile curved his lips, turning her into a fiery ball of need. Her eyes stayed locked with his, promises communicated back and forth. He winked at her.

“You know he’s going to try to dump us, don’t you?”

“I told him not to.” She glanced at Lincoln, saw his eyes were on her.

“He still will. You know that, right?”

She locked her jaw, nodding. “I do.”

Cole laughed, raising his bottle of water in a salute and turning to the seat behind the dashboard of the boat.

“Wrap your leg around mine.”

She shot him a look.

The boat started, a low purr filling the air.

He rolled his eyes. “I know you’d like any excuse to touch me and I really shouldn’t encourage your behavior, but unless you want to take a bath in the not so clean Mississippi, you’ll wrap your leg around mine.”

The boat started to move, gaining speed as it went.

“Sara.” Without thinking, she edged closer to Lincoln, his muscled leg twining around hers. “Hang on,” he shouted as the boat slammed forward, the tube gliding along the river after it.

“You can pull over now.”

She blinked. Trees and rolling hills loomed ahead. They were almost in the country. Sara shook her head. “No. I’m okay.”


“Yes. Just tell me where to go.”

He didn’t speak for a time, and then said, “Okay.”

“Why’d you bring that up?”


“The river. Tubing.”

“It was the first thing I could think of to take your mind off driving. Did it help?”

She nodded, taking a slow breath. “Yes.”

“Good. Turn left up here. The first house on the right. It’s blue. See it?”

“I see it.”

“And we’re here.”

She turned the key and the engine went silent. Her taut nerves were slightly relaxed, her breathing close to normal. She let her hands drop to her lap, staring at the red barn to the left of the house. A chicken darted past as she watched.

“Way to go, Sara Lynne.” He gently slugged her shoulder with his fist.

She turned to him. “Why that memory?”

He shrugged, but he wouldn’t meet her eyes. “I told you—”

“He dumped us. He dumped us and then I hit the water and was sucked down. My lifejacket got stuck on a limb underwater. I couldn’t get it loose and I was fighting to undo the lifejacket. I even thought maybe I would die.” She was breathing fast, the words stumbling from her lips.


“You found me. Somehow. You got the lifejacket off me and you pulled me from the water. The boat was coming back around. Your arms were locked around me tight. You had to be tired, but you never let me go. He was frantic, hauling me up first, hugging me, kissing me, telling me he was sorry. You got into the boat, you spun him around, and you punched him in the face. Spencer and Gracie were there, on the boat. Spencer had to pull you off him. You shouted things.” She suddenly stopped, a lump in her throat. She couldn’t say anymore.

“I told him he was an idiot.”

Other things. You said other things too. But all she said was, “Right.”

“Ready to work?”

“Lead the way, boss.” She followed him as he crossed the yard to get to the house, but her mind was still stuck on that day.

“You knew she didn’t want to be dumped! What the fuck were you thinking? She could have drowned. Fucking idiot,” Lincoln snapped and turned away from his brother, incalculable rage flashing in his eyes, stiffening his jaw.

Sara watched him storm to the back of the boat, ignoring Gracie when she tried to talk to him. She’d never seen him so furious before—never. Lincoln’s red plaid swim trunks were stuck to his legs like another layer of skin, his broad back taut. She was stunned by his reaction. Looking at Cole, she knew he was too.

Cole turned to her, his features tight. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t—I was just having some fun. You’re okay?”

She wiped water from her face, nodding. The outdoor carpet of the boat prickled her soft flesh and she moved to stand. “I’m okay.”

He helped her up, wrapping his arms around her. “If anything had happened to you—”

“It didn’t,” she broke in, eyes on Lincoln. He stared out at the endless water, profile carved from stone. He’d isolated himself from the rest of them, as though he didn’t want their taint of irresponsibility near him, or maybe just his brother’s.

“Because of Lincoln.”

Something in his tone made her glance at him, the flatness of it maybe. “Are you mad that he saved me?” Incredulity made her voice higher than it usually was.

He scowled, dropping his arms from her. “No.”

“Well, that’s good, because the alternative was drowning.”

The scowl deepened. “I know. It’s just…I’m supposed to save you, not him. I’m supposed to be there for you, not him.”

“You were too busy having fun driving the boat and trying to dump us,” she snapped.

“I know. I’m an ass.”

Her anger faded at the look on her husband’s face. It was full of self-recrimination.

“And proud.”

He nodded somberly. “That too.”

She felt herself soften toward him, as she always did. He looked so young, so pitiful. “I still love you.”

Cole looked up, flashing a grin brighter than the sun. “Good to know.”

“But if I was dead, I wouldn’t.”

“I’d still love you even if I was dead,” he retorted, trailing a hand along her hip and causing her to shiver.

“Okay, you two, it’s fun watching you almost make out and everything, but can we get going?” Spencer asked from where he lounged on the seat, Gracie beside him.

Cole moved to captain the boat and Sara walked toward Lincoln. The boat lurched forward as it accelerated and she grabbed the ledge to steady herself. She adjusted the yellow swim shorts as she neared him, tightening the straps of the turquoise bikini top. He didn’t look at her as she approached, his cool gaze trained ahead.

“Thank you,” she said quietly, sitting in the seat next to him.

Lincoln glanced at her. “I was scared out of mind, when you went under and I couldn’t see you. I—”

“Earth to Sara.” She ran into Lincoln’s chest, his hands steadying her as he set her back. “Sleepwalking again?”

She shrugged, her face burning. I don’t know what I would have done if anything had happened to you.That’s what he’d said. She hadn’t wanted to think about what it could have or could not have meant at the time. She wasn’t inclined to think about it that much now either. And yet…why had he brought up that day? Was he trying to tell her something without telling her something? Was she looking into it too much? Did he want her to remember what he’d said? Did Lincoln remember what he’d said?

“Why that day?” she pressed. An icy sharp wind started, tousling her hair around her face. Sara impatiently pushed it behind her ears, not letting him look away.

His neck convulsed as he swallowed. But he didn’t look away. Lincoln’s eyes were zeroed in on hers, looking at her in a way that made pressure form in her chest. “That was the day things changed for me.”


He finally looked away, tapping a pad of paper against his thigh. “Do you remember what I said to you, after it happened?”

She wasn’t prone to lying. She didn’t like being lied to and she didn’t like doing it to others. He was so intense, so still as he waited, like what she said mattered astronomically to him. Lie, Sara. For him. For you. Lie.

She opened her mouth.

Infinite Potential (Phasms, Vol. 1) #Review @bak229

For Kelsi Thomas, losing her husband at just twenty-three seems like the worst thing that could

happen—but living her dreams is even worse. Kelsi always Knows when bad things are coming, but even she never thought she’d lose her husband at only twenty-three. Since he died, she’s been living her worst nightmare. Her nights are filled with dreams of a Dark-Haired Man, but her days are full of guilt, because the Man fills her with longing and confusion, promising to give her all she needs, all she wants, all she feared she’d never have again. If only the dreams would stay in her head where they belong. Kelsi starts seeing the Dark-Haired Man in her waking life, shadowing her wherever she goes. And when her mysterious new neighbor, Aiden Hardt, knows about the Man in her dreams, Kelsi worries she can’t trust her own mind. He’s not what he seems. But even Aiden’s cryptic words don’t frighten her as much as the way she feels around him. Kelsi must sort through her emotions and figure out what’s real before she can ever hope to have a normal life again.


Garren has a true talent. It says something when I can cry over a character that’s not even alive in the book. My heart broke for Kelsi when Jamie died. You can feel her pain, you can feel how much she loved him. As you watch her fall apart, you can understand how a pain that deep can draw a phasm, as we come to understand later in the book. Garren made my skin crawl whenever Kelsi saw the shadow or the Dark-haired Man. Garren also has the ability to take you to the height of one emotion and then lets you fall to the lowest of another. This book is a roller coaster of emotions that I am willing to ride over and over again. Anyone who is a fan of the unknown, paranormal, and having a “knowing” feeling when something is going to happen, this book is perfect. I can’t wait for the next installment. The only problem I had with the book (it wasn’t the story, and I don’t know if it was just my devices) was the spacing and separation. There were paragraphs that were cut of midway and then pick up after a page separation. It was really frustrating. Otherwise, this would be a 5 star read.

Title: Forever Layla

Genre: NA Time Travel Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

What if the woman you envied most is the person you are destined to become?

In 1994, high school senior David Foster was the lackey and soundboard geek for his best friend's grunge band. During spring break, the band lands a dream gig playing at a motel in Myrtle Beach, SC. David expected all the girls to ogle the guys on stage, but when a beautiful blond "Bond Girl" approaches him and calls him by name, he's shocked to find out she knows more about him than a stranger should.

She even knows about his notebooks and his visions of time travel.

What she thought was a quick time-travel-sightseeing trip takes a surprising turn when she meets the young adult version of the man she'd heard stories about as a child. His fairy-tale romance with the woman he'd loved, Layla, inspired her to accept nothing less than a love just as strong...but hopefully not as tragic. When she won't tell the younger version of him her name, he calls her Layla--and the world as she knows it changes forever.

Discovered #Review @KimBlackBooks

Emily Roberts was done with men! She believed she was content with just focusing on her career. After Adam, her ex, cheated on her with not one but two of her co-workers, Emily fled from her former workplace, forgoing her internship and decided to start anew.

Though her decision to write off love had held up for over a year, her chastity belt would soon be put to the test when Julien Belmont, a French billionaire, takes an interest in her.

In one night, she questions everything she believes and though she is determined that he is no different from the rest, she finds herself in a world wind of affairs, lies and a tug of war between old and new men...

Can she learn to love again or will she flee from Julien, who she admits is the best lover she has ever had?

Julien Belmont is a gorgeous, commanding, and passionate Frenchman who enjoys his freedom. His ever growing sexual hunger makes it so his appetite is never quite quenched. At last not until he meets Emily. One night with her changes everything he has ever believed in.

Will his past destroy his potential future with Emily? Or will the fire between them burn eternal!

Note: This book is the first part of a series and is designed to be read in order.

This book contains erotic content and is not suitable for readers under the age of 18. 


Wow!!!  This novella is a book that keeps you on your toes wanting more.  The sex scenes are HOT!!  Emily is an intern chef that is caught up in a love triangle that is more of a web.  Julian is the vice president and also the son of a hotel chain.  He is Emily’s new flame that has never lifted Emily to the limits that she sees in the bedroom, but she finds out he has a secret that could keep them apart.  Adam, another chef and her ex, come back into Emily’s life pleading for them to be together forever.  Emily is torn on her decision and is uncertain about who she can trust the ex with the past or the new flame.  The ending is one that will definitely leave you wanting more.  I only gave this book a 4.5 out of 5 because Kim needs to take more time editing the book or have a person edit the book that is more experienced.   If she did that, I would have given her a perfect 5 because the material was well written.  I love how she is able to describe the scenes making you feel as if you are there.
