PAPERBACK: http://amzn.to/2jxHgeE

This tight end is at the top of his game.

He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His—ahem—stats are perfect.

But I can’t fall for him.

He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?

This guy is their star player.

The Foster Child By Jenny Blackhurst was one hell of a spooky book, having never read anything by this author before I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.
I really didn’t need to worry from the first page this story captured the reader building the atmosphere gradually and hooking its audience so subtly that before you knew it you were so emotionally invested in what was playing out before our rapt eyes.
So The Foster Child tells the story of Ellie Atkinson a foster child placed in the system after the death of her family in a house fire.
Along comes child psychologist Imogen Reid who upon returning to her childhood town after a big blip in her illustrious career inherits Ellie’s case.
From day one on the job, it’s apparent to Imogen that things in her old town are not right.
Everybody seems afraid of the quiet eerie eleven-year-old and Ellies only supporters are Her fifteen-year-old foster sister Mary and Imogen herself.
So, my god, this was creepy.
I actually found myself questioning everything I thought I believed.
You could feel the mass hysteria building as it was fueled by what people thought was real.
Taking on a life all of its own, like a snowball building its momentum.
Then BAM!!!!
everything came to a head and you were left feeling a trifle dim questioning yourself, did I really think that ?.
You as the reader have been swept along in the mass hysteria along with everyone else in this small community.
I loved this story, the characters were so real and interesting, this could be set in any small town around where I live.
The Foster Child was a fascinating insight into small-town dynamics and also a creepy atmospheric chiller.
Do you know what I liked best, it was how one young girl can start a rumour that actually takes on a life all of its own.
fuelling its own journey along the way.
Or did it!!! that twist at the end Man, didn’t see that coming.
It left us the reader with a whole host of new questions to ask.
So I end this review in a bit of a quandary.
What do I actually take away from this as the truth, I think in this instance only Ellie is aware of the bigger picture she is the puppetmaster of this chilling tale.
That is the only reason I deducted 1/2 a star from this as I was left feeling slightly confused, wondering what to actually believe.
I would like to thank Netgalley, the publisher and the author for providing me with a free ARC of The Foster Child this is my own free and honest opinion.

LipsCloseToMine-500.jpg

Lips Close to Mine to Me by Robin Bielman

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 20th

Synopsis

I wasn’t supposed to see Levi Pierce ever again. A few months ago, he charmed the pants off me and we spent one incredible night together.

End of story.

Only it wasn’t. Pretty soon everywhere I turn, I see him. Our best friends are dating. My mother mistakenly—and happily—thinks he’s my plus-one to my cousin’s wedding. And he’s the guy I have to work with on the most important job opportunity of my life.

Here’s my problem: I like Levi. I like his killer smile and his dreamboat eyes and definitely the way he makes me feel in bed. But I’ve sworn off relationships. So when the sexual tension reaches epic proportions and we fall back into bed together, I tell myself it’s temporary. When I start to feel more, I tell myself it’s over.

Only Levi isn’t a forget-it kind of guy. When his lips are close to mine and he swears he’s always wanted me, my defenses disappear. But some things in life just aren’t meant to be.

Or are they?

AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT CATHIE DEVITT

Cathie Devitt has always been a scribbler. Cathie never held any ambition to have her work published, she just loves words, (which you will understand if you ever try to engage her in conversation).

“Encouraged by friends who write I submitted a few poems and short stories to various publications and was delighted when they were accepted for magazines and anthologies. There is nothing a writer likes better than the thrill of seeing their work in print…or is there?”

Cathie’s comedy drama “Mammy” was written for the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and following that success went on to be performed at Edinburgh Fringe and Henley Festival. Cathie performed the lead role in the Glasgow events.

This experience reminded Cathie of a play that she wrote in her last year of primary school. “A New Door Opens” Another play that brought success in that it toured around several schools in Glasgow at the request of Cathie’s then Head teacher, Mr Murphy. Again, Cathie played the lead role.

“ I think it’s good for a writer to have the confidence to read or perform their own work. It brings it to life as only the writer really knows when best to change tone and pace. Of course should Gerard Butler or Bette Midler ever want to read/perform my work, who am I to stop them?”

Page-1-Image-1[1].png

When Cathie published her first book “Don’t Drink & Fly!” she was again caught up in the warm hug of the validation of it being published, the book launch, media coverage and positive reviews. With book number two now on sale “Don’t Doubt the Magic!” Cathie still feels in awe when folk take time out of their busy lives to read and comment on her work.

“I don’t submit much of my work for publication just because I never seem to get the time to hone and polish it to a standard that I feel is my best. Percentage wise though I have a good track record. I feel saddened when I hear writers measure their success only by their book sales/reviews/ ratings and awards. Whilst I understand that public recognition is valuable I think a it can detract from what we as writers do and that is share our imagination for others enjoyment. Marketing is very powerful and sometimes gems are drowned in the surging sea of the publicity of work from cash happy agents.”

With a hectic life, family and work commitments, Cathie continues to write.

Bait by Jade West

Release Date-August 14th 2017
Publisher-Jade West
Genre-Erotic Romance
Kindle Edition-403 Pages

A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did.
A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me.
And now he’s coming for me.
Rough. Dirty. Dangerous.
It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.
He’ll make me his and I’ll pretend I don’t want him to.
I’ll run and he’ll chase.
Because I asked him for this.
I begged him for this.


Tonight, in the darkness, he’s the hunter.
And I’m the bait20728920_638988426294879_7319807723764178913_o.

(TRIGGER WARNING!!! Bait has a forced seduction fantasy as its main subject PLEASE AVOID!!! If this is a trigger for you.)
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟STARS.
Jade West has done it again for me, made me fall head over heels for another one of her stories.
No one I have found can write it quite like Miss West, her books and the characters they contain are pure an utter filth.
The words they use, the situations they experience, well let’s just say I’m fanning myself quite robustly here phew!!!! super hot!!!
So where was I, Oh yeh, pure filth, So as I was saying, Jade, is the master of kinky fuckery and she so adores taking the reader out of there comfort zone and her latest offering “Bait” is no exception.
Here she takes the scenario of hunter and Bait, that taboo forbidden fantasy of a forced seduction.
A monster actually waiting alone in the dark to pounce.
Well obviously in real terms, this would be so terrifying but as a consensual fantasy, this is a whole different ballgame indeed.
And this is what our heroine Abigail longs for, yes she’s definitely a trifle stupid advertising for a hook up online, so not safe you silly girl.
That’s why it’s lucky when our gorgeous tattooed hero Leo is the one that volunteers to be her monster in the dark.
Now, this is where this author comes into her own. not only does she write such taboo but enticing material, but she also manages to grab you by your heartstrings and pull, drawing such emotional responses from her characters and also her readers.
So Bait itself while being super hot was also a deeply emotional experience.
Jade West has the ability to weave the diverse with the normal, Bringing it out into the mainstream.
She has created two very likeable multifaceted individuals, equipped them both with a major ton of baggage and then turned up the heat.
The result is this very unique offering which I loved immensely.
I would even go as far as to say Bait has become my new all-time favourite of Jade West’s Books,
That is probably until I read her next one.
I also adored both Abigail and Leo as characters and this is where I think Jade really succeeds, she creates a connection, making the reader actually care, and this I think is a rare talent so bravo a real
Well done Miss West.
