Coming Soon Announcement {Giveaway}: Lost Stars by R.E. Hunter

RE Hunter teaser-loststars
Title: Lost Stars
Author: R.E. Hunter
Genre: Contemporary Romance - Standalone
Release: TBD


I was lost. Alone. I left Jameson out of necessity. I was desperate to protect him, and I had to save myself. It was all that mattered. Even if it meant shattering his heart into a million pieces. And mine along with it. But here I am, standing in front of him, and the new life I so carefully built is unraveling before my eyes. A secret long buried threatening to swallow me whole. I can't walk away again, but if I stay, I'm scared I won't survive the fallout...


It's so natural, the pull between us. It makes gravity look weak. My body starts toward him before my brain has the chance to decide otherwise. He's always managed to be just what I need when I need it, and now is no different. Despite the anger and pain that clouds our past, I grab hold of what he's offering without a second thought."

What Others Are Saying

It's so full of twists and turns, and OMG moments that you will once again be drawn into stalking, plotting, and the emotional roller coaster we know as Matt. ~ Goodreads Review 

Her stories have so many twists, turns, and bumps they literally leave your head spinning and your heart wondering how or why it could feel anything for these sinister and hateful characters!! Oh did I mention my jaw being open plenty of times too!! If you do not take the time to read Viveca's foreward in her books, go back and do so. Her thoughts are absolutely fascinating. That mind of hers is definitely twisted. Goodreads Review

he action is fast paced and the characters well developed. Once again Ms. Benoir has delved deeply into Matt's twisted mind to share his story and she is not done yet. ~ Goodreads Review

This book is long but again, the writing is fabulous. I must admit the first book was quite shocking with the horrifying acts it held within, but this book was less shocking and I really enjoyed it. ~ Goodreads Review

“We’re fucking wasted on destruction,” I say.
“That we are …” He muffles a laugh.
“This isn’t funny, you know.”
“Oh, I know.”
“You just tried to kill me,” I say.
He tilts his head. “And you just tried to kill me.”
When I try to push him off me, he grabs my wrists again and slams them above my head. “We’re both dirty fucking killers, Vanessa,” he says.
“Let me go,” I say.
“Or what? You’re going to run? You’re going to kill me? I doubt it.”
“You don’t know that,” I say, biting my lip.
“I do because you’re still not telling the truth. At least, not to yourself.”
“What are you talking about?” I say as he crawls on top of me again.
“I’m talking about the fact that you, after everything I’ve done to you, still think of me as someone you could be with.”
I swallow away the lump in my throat. “No.” I shake my head. “Impossible. We’re two different people.”
“Two different people united by the same lust for vengeance. Hate. Murderous tendencies.” He leans in closer. “I know you’re lying, Princess. I can smell it.” He sucks in a breath with his nose.
I shiver underneath him, feeling the sparks alight. “I’m not … I can’t. This just can’t.”
“It can because you want it to. Because I want it to. Stop saying and thinking things that aren’t true. You know as well as I do that it’s unavoidable.”
His eyes are half-mast, sultry, almost seductive, and I can’t help but want to lean in for a kiss.
It’s disturbing, I know. After just wanting to kill him, and him wanting to choke me, I still desire him. Our connection feels stronger than ever now that I’ve spoken the truth, and it’s hard to ignore the growing tension between us. It’s the flipside of deep-seated hatred … love bursting underneath the surface, ready to pop out and grow.
But is it really the right thing?
I press my lips together, and he brings his hand to my face. I expect another slap, and close my eyes, but instead, he surprises me by caressing my cheek. When I open my eyes, he’s smiling.
“I’ll forgive you, if you’ll forgive me,” he whispers.
I blink a couple of times. “How? After all of this?”
“Just say the words,” he muses. “Forgive and forget.”
“I …” I take a deep breath as a single tear runs down my cheek. He catches it with his finger and puts it in his mouth, sucking hard.
“Hmm … Nothing like some tears in the morning.”
I shake my head, chuckling to myself. “You’re one sick bastard.”
“One sick bastard you’re in love with.”

Controlling Interests (The Legacy #2) by Lana Grayson
Cover Designer: Rebecca Berto from Berto Designs
Expected Release Date: July 15, 2015


Submission is survival… Sarah Trapped. Seduced. Betrayed. Submission is the greatest revenge. When I turn twenty-one, my family’s secret trust passes to me, and I’ll finally destroy Darius Bennett…if I survive my captivity. But vengeance comes at a cost, and Nicholas Bennett demands a male heir to ensure my safety. I fell hard for my step-brother, but loving the man is easier than trusting a Bennett. Hiding our relationship will protect us, but what will happen if the lies twist and the truth is revealed? I have to save myself, because I don’t know if anyone else will. Nicholas Devoted. Consumed. Lost. I’m out of options, out of allies, out of time. I want it all—my step-sister and her heir, the money and empires—and I’ll stop at nothing to ensure they’re mine. But saving the woman I love means either betraying her secret or losing the power that is my birthright. How do I protect my family from Sarah Atwood, and how do I keep her safe from my father? The answer? I can’t. And the sacrifice will ruin us both.

Release Week Event {Review + Giveaway}: STOP! by Alison G. Bailey

Title: STOP!
Author: Alison G. Bailey
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary
Release Date: 6/25/15


Every life has a different path full of sharp turns, smooth curves, and steep drop offs.

Hollis Murphy has a plan—college, career, boyfriend, love, marriage, family. A predictable, normal life. She’s on track until an outside force causes her to crash and burn. They call it an accident, because that’s the only word they know to explain what happens to her. It helps everyone move on with their lives, except for Hollis. She holds on to the belief that she’s been targeted for a reason. 

Risher Stevenson is intelligent, caring, sweet, and the hottest boy Hollis has ever laid eyes on. He fits perfectly into her original plan for a normal life. Everyone loves him.

Benton Daniels is intelligent, caring, sweet, and the bravest boy Hollis has ever met. He doesn’t fit into her life but gives it purpose and makes it extraordinary. Everyone hates him.

One is bullied. One is tormented. All are judged. How will it STOP?


“Name?” she said, impatiently.
I was so flustered that for a second I’d forgotten who I was. “Hollis Murphy.”
She scribbled something on a spreadsheet and handed me a packet with my name and the number two hundred ten typed out on the front sticker, which I assumed was my room number.
In a flat bored voice, she said, “Everything you need to know is in the packet. Should you have any additional questions or needs after reading the information, please ask your RA. Have a productive semester. Next!”
Clutching the envelope to my chest, my gaze shifted back down, and I walked quickly out of the office.
As I turned the corner, a loud deep woot! jerked my attention down the hall. I took one step before crashing full force into something solid and warm. Stumbling back, I dropped the envelope. Once my balance returned, my eyes focused on a gray T-shirt with cut off sleeves, stretched across broad shoulders. When I glanced down in search of my envelope, I couldn’t help but spot the narrow hips and round ass covered in black basketball shorts. As I squatted to pick up the envelope, a tanned forearm came into view. My gaze roamed up to find the arm was covered in bulging muscles.
“Oh god, I’m so . . . sor…ry,” I stammered, my cheeks heating with embarrassment.
            “Here ya go,” a deep voice said.
Reaching for the envelope, my gaze inadvertently shot up to the warmest green eyes ever created. His dark brown hair was cut short on the sides, longer on top, and tousled. The perfect amount of scuff peppered his strong jawline, with deep dimples framing a sexy lopsided smile. The air was immediately sucked from my lungs. He wasn’t just hot, he was boy band hot.
            A deep chuckle drifted down before I realized he had stood up and was extending his hand to me.
Oh boy! I get to touch him.
I slipped my hand into his and felt an immediate jolt of electricity. The muscles in his arm twitched. He felt it too.
“Thank you,” I said, as he helped me up.
            “I’m Risher Stevenson.”
            He was actually introducing himself to me.
            It had become a habit not to look directly at anyone, especially a stranger. I automatically angled my head down and to the left, to hide the messed-up side of my face. But those green eyes locked me in place. 
            “Hollis Murphy.”
            “Nice to meet you Hollis Murphy.”
            “Sorry again about running into you. I need to do a better job at watching where I’m going.”
            The tip of his tongue slipped between his lips before they formed into a slight smirk. Just as he was about to speak, his name came barreling down the hallway.
            “Rish! Get your ass down here. We’ve got a ton of boxes to haul in.” A blond-haired guy was standing at the end of the hall.
            “I gotta go finish helping my friends move in.”
            I nodded.
            Risher took three steps before turning back toward me. “Don’t do too good of a job.”
            My eyebrows squished together in confusion.
            “At watching where you’re going. I hate to think I won’t get rump bumped again.”
He winked before jogging away.
            I Sasquatched those shoulders, those hips, and that ass all the way down the hall.


Before I get into my review I first would like to say the this was my first book my Alison. I have heard nothing but great things about her Perfect series, so I was super excited to start STOP!.

STOP! is about a girl named Hollis. She had an accident that caused her to had surgery which in turn resulted in a scar on her face. She was often called names in high school so she is insecure while entering her first year in college. There she meets two boys. 

Risher is adorable. He's smart and he is very kind.

Benten is going through something not all of us understand, but Hollis sees him as brave.

After finishing this book I was kind of disappointed. The writing was great, but it was Hollis that just didn't do it for me. Torwards the end I didn't really understand some of Hollis' decisions in terms of telling the authorities know about what was going on with Benten.

One thing that I would liked to know more about was Fishers past with his father. This book was a bit rushed at the end and I didn't really like that.

This book is labeled as New Adult and I don't know if the author intended for is to be NA or not, but aside from some bad words it felt like I was reading a Young Adult book.

All in all it was a good read, but I expected more from the other characters.

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

Belén: I’ve loved Luciano ever since I can remember, desired him before I even knew what it meant. He’s always been the only man in my life—my constant protector, and his rejection only intensifies my need.
