Pretty; Blog Tour

by Amber Lacie
Dark Romantic Suspense Thriller

After a lifetime of torture from a man set out to destroy her, Andie finally finds herself surviving on her own free of his grasp despite her past still haunting her dreams. Laith had his own demons to fight, but now he's thriving in Chicago as the owner of City Ink Tattoos. When Andie and Laith meet their worlds shift as they find strength in each other. Will they be able to build with the pieces of their hearts they have left, or will their love crumble and fall leaving them both completely shattered? **Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only.*

“Everyone I have ever loved has left me. Intentional or not, they’ve left me alone and broken. You were so beautiful when I found you on the bench. It was the sounds of your heart breaking into a thousand pieces which drew me to you, and then you looked up at me. My heart stopped, my breath became yours, and at that exact moment, I knew I would never be able to get enough of you.” Cradling me to his chest, his fingers brush through my long messy locks. “Please, don’t go. I need you just as much as you need me. I know you feel this, whatever this is between us. You look so frightened, but when I touch you I can see your body accept me. I calm you, and you do the same for me.”

“Nothing anyone can say or do will change how I feel about you. I’m a broken man, Andie. For once in my life, I feel whole. I feel when I’m with you, I’m not just existing. I have a purpose, a reason for still being here on this earth when everyone else has left me, and it’s you. I love you.”
“Laith.” His name falls from my lips in a soft whisper. Never in my life did I ever picture being with someone, not like this. “I don’t deserve you.”
“That’s bullshit and you know it. Now, tell me what you keep thinking. Tell me what you’ve said under your breath. Tell me the thoughts I’ve heard slip from your lips.”
“I love you. I love you so fucking much and it’s scaring the shit out of me. I don’t know what to do, what to say, or how to breathe. I’m lost and I feel weak, but I’m not those things. I’m not weak. I don’t need people to save me, I take care of myself, and I don’t how to do any of this.” Tears fall from my eyes, sliding down my cheeks, and land on the sheets beneath my head.
“You’re far from weak. You’re fucking incredible, and I’m lost in you.” His lips collide with mine, all the while my heart slams in my chest as if it might explode.

Sometimes love is fated in the stars. You know you are destined for each other. Your souls entwine and you can’t imagine your life without them.
Sometimes it’s found when you’re not looking for it. It peeks around the corner when you least expect it, sweeping you off your feet, carrying you off into the sunset.
Sometimes, there are a lucky few who get to experience both. I was one of the lucky ones.

Read It Review It Book Blog: The Importance of Reviews

¸.•´¸.•*´¨)✯ ¸.•*¨)
✮ (¸.•´✶ (¸.♡ Why Book Reviews are    
✯ ¸.•*(¸.•´✶ (¸.♡ Important to Authors
What’s great about reviews is that it helps an author you like in so many ways. New readers can discover new authors they love, the author him or herself can attract new readers who might not otherwise have found them, the list goes on and on. But in today’s marketplace where there are so many books, the wonderful thing about great reviews of a book is that they can go viral, and help the author succeed based on word of mouth alone.
Chances are most people reading this have bought at least one book this year and read that book plus others you already had. Did you enjoy any of those books? And if so, did you leave review for the books anywhere? I’d say nine times out of ten, the answer to this last question is no. And I’d have to answer “no” as well. I’m just like everyone else in that my time is limited or I simply forget to write a review for a book I enjoyed. But I need to be better about leaving those important reviews at sites such as or Barnes & Noble and via social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads.
Why are reviews important, particularly if you enjoyed a book? There are several reasons. Here are a few.
1. We live in a world where people are much more likely to vent online if they hate something than to post something nice if they enjoyed it. Sad but true. So if you have 100 people read a book and 98 love it but only the two who thought it was garbage post a review, guess what. People who come across that book on a retailer’s site are going to think it’s garbage. They won’t know about the 98 people who thought it was a wonderful story with engaging characters. Those negative reviews could keep people who might enjoy the book from buying it, depriving the author of sales that are necessary to help pay his or her bills.
2. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, authors look for good opportunities to get the word out about their books. Sometimes online advertising venues have requirements such as a certain number of positive reviews on retailer sites before they will even consider selling you an ad. The same is often true of book review sites, especially if those sites are popular and have a lot of clout among readers.
3. A larger number of reviews, especially positive ones, helps books get seen on sites such as We all have heard about the mysterious algorithms that determine which books pop up on things such as the “you might also enjoy this” suggestions. Visibility is important in a marketplace flooded with books, so every little bit helps. Its been said that it takes 10 reviews on Amazon before a book can be added to those “also bought” and “you might also like” lists. But the more, the merrier.
4. Again and maybe most important Word of mouth. If someone sees a positive review of a book and decides to give it a try, he or she might also enjoy it enough to not only leave a review but also tell their friends about it. We’ve all heard stories about how word of mouth sent a book from obscurity to the bestseller list. Look what happened with 50 Shades of Grey. From a tiny publisher with very little promotion, this book was a huge international bestselling phenomenon, all because people were talking about it.
Sure, it’s a long shot, but it’s better than no shot.
A good review is to an author what oxygen is to other people. They live for them, they love them, Authors truly do appreciate the time and effort it takes readers to write and post reviews. They know our time is every bit as valuable as theirs.
It means so much to them when a reader takes the time to share their opinion and support their work.
So if you read a book, write a review. It doesn't have to be 5 paragraphs. Just let others know how the book made you feel. How it might have touched you. Or how you connected with something or someone in the story.
On behalf of Authors everywhere and those of us that love them.  Thank you in advance for your gift of reviews. <3

The Ocean Between Us
by Michelle Heard
5 Stars

I absolutely loved this Story! The characters are so strong. The book is so full of feels! I had to set it down twice. There are triggers so read the blurb, but it's a must read!

Dying to experience life, I cross an ocean to get away from my fears. I find my safe haven in the form of Detective Aiden Holden. He shows me what love is, but then our lives collide. Our little world shatters, and I'm caught in the crossfire.
I'm forced to return home, to let go of the only person who has made me feel like I could be more.
How do you return to a cage once you’ve tasted freedom?
My only hope is that Aiden will cross an ocean for me.

Complicated Parts Book 1 by Ashley Jade

Complicated Parts Book 1
By Ashley Jade
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Mindblowingly Epic!
Most Anticipated book of 2018! Life is complicated, love is addicting, and we make bad choices even when we know it's gonna hurt. It's just the way it is. That's real! I know I've seen more train wrecks than rainbows in my lifetime. Deep down I'm a good person. That's why I get it. This book is so far from conventional, it's complicated, but it's real with all the dirt and grit. This Author is great because she's willing to take risks she creates the most dynamic characters and she lets them tell their stories. They are so easily brought to life in your mind that you become a part of the world she's built. You want to engage with them on a personal level, give them advice, or yell at them. You'll love them, you'll hate them, you'll cry for them. The whirlwind of drama and angst, the twists and turns, the push and pull, the whatever the hell this thing is that keeps certain individuals coming back won't let you go either! From page one you won't put it down. I've been waiting a long time for this story and it's been worth every agonizing minute. I'm ok with the cliffhanger now that it has been split into a duet because I know part 2 is coming soon. But I easily could have read a 2000 page story straight through its that good! It is a #MustRead! *You do not have to read Complicated Hearts 1 & 2 before you read this Book.
