Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….

Zack Martin

The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…

I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.

Nikki Fallon

After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. 

Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

Heartbreakingly Beautiful.

That's what Left Behind is.

Devastatingly Amazing.

That's what Left Behind is.

I have to admit that I'm a huge fan of Vi Keeland. I have read and loved every book she has ever written. She is really one of the best authors out there. And also, one of the most kind souls I have ever met.

Left Behind is simply one more example of her immense talent!

The story is just one of a kind. It's out of this world. I loved and hated it at the same time, as the characters are magnificent and bad things just happened to them.

Twisted fate strikes again in this novel, which is as exhilarating as heartbreaking.

I loved this book from the first pages, from the first glimpses in our characters.

The writing is beautiful, elegant and smart. It shows that two authors can write one book together and that book will be amazing. Collaborations aren't easy, as we all know!! But these two, well they really rocked this one!

The book is still fresh so the review has no spoilers regarding the story or the characters.

All I can and want to say is that this book is a DEFINITE MUST READ!! You are missing something important if you don't read this!!

So, Left Behind gets 5 Huge Sparkling Golden Stars and I sincerely hope no one feels left behind in this world..

Mia Ryan has learned the hard way that her choices can have horrible consequences. Taking an offer that was supposed to get her life back on track was nothing but a ploy. To keep the ones she holds dear safe, she's forced to finish what she started, without any hope of finding out why she was targeted in the first place. Though Mia has Ethan by her side, she can't seem to believe in him, especially since most of his life remains a mystery. 

Ethan Fitzgerald has done everything in his power to prove to Mia that she can trust him, but it never seems to be enough to convince her to drop the last wall around her heart. With deep and dark secrets lurking around every corner, he has his own plan to keep Mia from any danger, but it may just shatter their love forever. 

There are so many questions – with even more shocking answers – 

and when Mia uncovers the truth, nothing will ever be the same...


Just wow..

The Secrets & Lies Series is spectacular and absolutely breathtaking! The second book just continues and spreads the awesomeness of this series!!

The story is  well complicated, it has so many twists and turns that it's really hard to see where the author will take you! The story is smart and intriguing and pretty damn attractive!

The characters stay true to themselves, but at the same time we notice changes here and there.

Complicated is a very well written novel and a truly exceptional book as a part of a series.

M.M. Koenig proves once again how brilliant she is, and we couldn't be happier about that! She has delivered another amazing read with more mystery and sexiness!

The Secrets & Lies is a 5 Star Series and Complicated is worthy of them, as well.

Exceptional and Brilliant. Breathtaking and Sexy.

So, this great book receives 5 Huge Sparkling Golden Stars, which was not a complicated thing to do!

I woke to the sound of waves crashing as my nose caught the salty scent of the ocean. I rolled over to find red rose petals scattered over the bed, with a long-stemmed one lying in the middle. Securing the sheet around me, I rested on my elbows before picking up the single rose. Ethan was on his side with his eyes on me. I twirled the rose and gave him a soft smile. He was without a shirt and propped on an elbow. His messy hair was wet with droplets of water dripping along his neck and the contours of his shoulders, before sliding down his carved chest. The sunlight pouring in from the window made his body gleam. He always aroused me instantly, but staring at him now made him seem even more God-like, and I wanted every part of him.
“Did you take a shower without me? That has to be a first.”
Ethan reached over to tuck my hair behind my ears. His hand trailed down my side to rest on mine. “I got up at sunrise to catch some waves.”
“I didn’t know you surfed. I’m not surprised, since you like wakeboarding so much.”
He brought our bodies so close that our chests were nearly touching. My heart sped up as he leaned over me with his hand clamped on my hip. “I surf, but you’re wrong about boarding. I don’t like it – I love it. Surfers get really pissy if boarders ruin their ride so I don’t wakeboard when I’m on the ocean. I settle for catching waves on a different board, but I don’t love it nearly as much.”
I caught the passion in his eyes. Ethan loved doing anything on the water. My mouth twisted into an adoring grin as I stared at my magnificent boyfriend. “You taught me how to board. I suppose you can teach me how to surf, too?”
Ethan chuckled. “I’d love to. I’m not sure if we’ll have time on this trip. I’ll line up another one soon. We should go to Hawaii or Australia. If you’re going to learn, you might as well learn in one of the best surfing spots on the planet.”
His hand veered from my hip down to my ass where he gently pinched me. Ethan licked his luscious lips, and I saw a hunger in his eyes. I knew that look. My breaths started becoming shorter as I responded to his fingers traveling further down. Ethan hovered over me and pulled at my elbows to lay me on my back. He took the rose out of my hand and set it on the nightstand before sliding down the sheet. His lips fell to my collarbone and water dripped from his hair into my cleavage. The coolness of it sizzled with the fire inside me.
“When is our first meeting today?” I stuttered.
“It’s still early. We can do whatever you want for a while,” Ethan purred.
He continued to leisurely kiss his way down to my breasts while one hand wandered further down my thigh. My hand drifted between his thighs where I timidly stroked his straining erection. His lips traveled along my chest until they reached my breasts. Ethan flicked both nipples to attention before taking one and sucking frantically. I groaned when he gently bit down before letting his tongue take over.
“We can go for a walk on the beach,” Ethan murmured heatedly.
I grasped under his shoulders to bring him closer to me. Once in reach, I ran my lips along the top of his pecks and returned the favor by biting down along each of his nipples.
“We can go do some sightseeing,” Ethan groaned loudly.
My fingers ran across the tip of his cock before travelling down his shaft. I worked to match the speed of my lips and the hand wrapped around him. My body clenched as my ache for him grew. His lips journeyed to my neck where his tongue glided to my jaw.
“Or we can stay here and make love,” Ethan whispered passionately.
He spread my legs even further and settled his hand inside before running several fingers in and out. They slipped along the slickness. I bit down on his top lip as he approached my mouth. I moved my tongue along the top of his before going under his chin. I licked away at the saltiness with fervor. His chest rumbled as I continued meticulously sucking along his throat. His fingers matched the pace of my lips as they slipped over my clit.
He stilled my hand around him and placed it along his back. I brought my other hand around him tightly, needing him to satisfy the inferno he had created. He entered, with every inch of him penetrating deep within me. I cried out and commanded my overly turned-on body not to let go. I ran my hands down to his ass to urge him to move again. He groaned before twisting his hips.
I brought my hips up to meet every thrust he gave. My hands scratched up his back on their way to his neck. I pulled him into me in demand for more and he drove into me harder, creating a feeling of euphoria throughout my body. I screamed out his name with each twist of his hips. He slowed down to take several drawn-out thrusts.
“Fuck, you feel more amazing every time,” Ethan shouted.
 My hips matched his momentum as he brought us closer. He paused to roll us over to put me on top so I could take him. I rolled my hips with urgency to find a release for us both. My back arched as my hips carried along wildly. Ethan ran his hands along my sides before cupping my breasts tenderly.
“Ethan … God, yes …” I panted.
He sat up to bring our faces together and straddled my legs around him before driving his hips into me. My nails dug into his back as my body started to clench around him. Our thrusts sped up as our bodies strove for a climax. I tightened around him as he started to tremble. I ran my hands to his hair where I grabbed on tightly and screamed out as the ecstasy took me from the room to a far-off place. I shuddered and continued until my body found solid ground again. Ethan rested his head in my shoulder as he found his own release. He gently placed me on my back and slid out before falling next to me, his fingers scratching lightly along my belly.

When Jonathan decided to help Lisa, he was trying to atone in some way for his past sins. He certainly wasn't expecting to be pulled into a night full of hiding out from the press with a journalist called Sandra Haegen, and almost being choked to death by a rockstar in love with his ex.   

When Sandra decided to help Lisa by feeding Perry, she was just trying to be a good person. She also wasn't expecting to spend the night hiding from the press. Even more so, she wasn't expecting to spend the night with one of Australia's hottest young actors, Jonathan Masters. 

She also wasn't expecting to save his life.   And that's just the beginning.   

From there, these two must find a way live with the past and look to the future - no matter what the personal cost.

Exclusive Except: 

The next morning, I head into work to find yet another gift waiting for me on my desk. It’s a small white box with a blue ribbon tied around it, and the sight of it makes me stop in my doorway and immediately pull out my phone. “This needs to stop,” I say to myself with an annoyed shake of my head as I pull up Jonathan’s number and dial. He picks up within two rings. 
“Good morning, Red,” he chirps. “Stop sending me things,” I demand immediately. “You’ve got the wrong guy this time. Whatever you have, it wasn’t me. Maybe it was from that pretty boy you were kissing in the papers the other day.” “He’s not a pretty boy. You’re a pretty boy.” “That’s very sweet of you to say,” he jokes. “Well, I’m a sweetheart, what can I say. Listen, sorry to attack you, I should have checked the card first.” “You can call me anytime, for anything. I won’t hold it against you.” “Ok,” I laugh. “I’m hanging up now.” “Alright, you do that. But, Red, when am I going to see you again?” “I haven’t decided on that yet.” “You’re hurting me. I just want to be your friend and you’re putting up road blocks.” “I’m totally not buying this friend act.” “You should, because it can’t be more unless you want it to be. Besides, we have fun. We get along. You want fun, right?” “You’re trying too hard, Jonathan. I’m going now.” I can hear the smile in his voice. “Bye, Red.” Hitting the end call button, I walk over to my desk and pull the blue ribbon on the box to get to the card. For your tastebuds. Call me. Brad Smiling, I open the box and find a red velvet cupcake inside. When I bite into it–and yes­, I eat it immediately–it’s the softest, most flavour-filled baked treat I have ever had the pleasure of eating–and I’ve eaten a lot, so I know what I’m talking about. 

“You are very popular lately,” Erin, our receptionist comments on her way past my office. “You’re getting more deliveries than anyone else here. And the guy who dropped that off was H-O-T. Oh my lord, you are one lucky woman.” “He was here?” I ask, pointing at the box as I talk through a mouthful of cake. “I think so. Dark hair, brown eyes, tatts all over his arms? He was wearing a white bonds shirt, a pair of jeans, and some Vans. He didn’t seem like a courier to me.” “That’s him alright. How long ago?” “Maybe an hour? I told him you don’t get in until nine.” I swallow the last of the cake and lick the crumbs off my fingers and my lips, apologising that there was only one in the box as I do. Then I thank Erin for dropping by and when she leaves, turn to my phone again, this time ringing the correct person for a thank you.

 Yowza! We are extremely excited to bring you the Release Day Launch for Cora Carmack's ALL BROKE DOWN!! ALL BROKE DOWN is a New Adult Contemporary Romance novel being published by HarperCollins, and it is the 2nd book in The Rusk University Series.

All Broke Down

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iTunes


 In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love. 

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one. Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. 

When her latest cause lands her in jail overnight, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause. 

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. 

Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help. Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

Add it to your TBR on Goodreads!!

 I think I get it then. That decision I saw in her eyes back in the kitchen. That’s what this, what I’m about for her, too. I’m just another part of whatever rebellion she started earlier today. About doing what she wants, not what’s expected of her. “We’re not talking about me, though,” she says. “So you went to meet your friend, and then what happened?” She keeps her eyes down as she picks up the gauze and begins winding it snugly around the knuckles of one hand, and then the other. “He said the wrong thing.” “Which was?” “Dylan.” Now it’s her that’s pushing too hard. I didn’t want to talk about things with my friends, and I won’t talk about them with her, either, no matter how gorgeous she is. “I’ll guess. You were mad about what he did, and he wasn’t sorry.” “This isn’t middle school, Pickle. He didn’t hurt my feelings. He said some shit he had no business saying, and it pissed me off. The end.” “But you don’t think some of that anger stems from what you feel is a betrayal of your friendship?” She finishes taping down the last of the gauze, but doesn’t let go of my hand. “I think you’re analyzing me again. Making things more complicated than they are.” “And I think you’re just a guy who doesn’t like to admit he has feelings.” She drags out the word, teasing me with some goofy smile on her face. I turn my hand over so I can clutch her wrist. I curlmy other bandaged hand around her waist and pull her closer. 

“I feel plenty of things.” The teasing stops. She swallows. “I wasn’t talking about that kind of feeling.” With her standing and me sitting, I’m eye level with her chest. I see the sharp rise and fall as she sucks in a breath. I want her in my lap again, straddling me this time. “Doesn’t mean we can’t talk about that kind of feeling. Or experiment with it.” “Is that Stella girl an ex?” I cough, surprised. My throat twists uncomfortably, and it takes me a couple of solid breaths to get a hold on myself. “Ah, no. Stella and I have never dated.” “Have you—” “Do you ever run out of questions?” “Not ever.” She turns playful again, and I’m done doing this the careful way. If she wants a rebellion, I’ll be the one to give it to her. I want her against me, and I’m tired of waiting. I pull her forward, insinuating my knees between hers, and her body naturally follows, settling across my thighs. Her lips part, but she catches herself before she gasps this time. I keep her steady with my hands at her waist and say, “I’ll make you a deal. A question for a kiss.” Tentatively, she lays her palms against my shoulders. They rest there, her grip light and casual. She ponders my offer for a moment, and it drives me mad that she can do that while our hips are inches away from alignment. “Okay then. Are you—” I cut her off. “Not so fast, Dylan Brenner. I’ve already answered one question. We’ve got to settle up first.” I wrap her braid around my hand like I’ve been waiting to do all night, and I use it to pull her head back just enough that I can crush my mouth against hers.

Title:  Intensity
Author:  CC Koen
Genre:  NA, Contemporary Romance
Release Day:  October 20, 2014


What would you do to improve your life?

Twenty-one-year-old Serena Thomas is faced with a tough decision. Unable to get ahead of debt and loneliness since her grandmother’s death she finds a new job, placing the sheltered virgin in an underground escort business. She tells herself it’s just a temporary life choice, but destiny has a different plan. She meets a mysterious and gorgeous man, who happens to be her new boss. Will Serena fit in or will she be left all alone again?

Lincoln (aka: Linc) Jefferson has an unusual life. He established The Lounge, an exclusive escort club for very personal reasons. A place where the women say who, when, and what type of sex they’re willing to have. The escorts possess all the power and the money. It’s a business Linc guards at all costs. Trying to maintain the secrecy is a constant challenge and one that’s tested when he enters into a relationship with Serena. She tempts him unlike any woman, even though he’s surrounded by beauty on a daily basis. The more time they spend together the harder it is for him to keep his secrets. Will Serena stand by his side or will she abandon him?

Sparks and passion fly, taking these two on a journey neither could have expected.

Intensity is very special book, since its story is so different than any other and so damn unpredictable!

Every twist and every turn the story takes is unexpected and brilliantly developed. The characters take us in one helluva ride and we love every second of it!

I couldn’t put it down!!

Serena is such a lovely character! She has a good heart, but she isn’t naive or crying her heart out over men. She is a good and loyal friend. She isn’t fearless; she has fears that she deal with every single day. She is a good girl, but isn’t judgemental regarding others who aren’t.

Linc is well..a good man / alpha male. He has this ‘You’re mine - No one touches you’ thing, but he isn’t overbearing. He protects with elegance, should I say. He’s quite the gentleman for an alpha male, too.

I have to say that everyone should have one Serena as a friend and definitely a Linc as a man!

It’s beautifully written and everything fits perfectly!!

Intensity is a great book and I loved it!

I strongly recommend it!!

However, I would like to say that it’s the FIRST BOOK!! The story continues to the next book or books.

Personally, I strongly dislike when I don’t know this fact before I read the book. I don’t have an issue if it’s a 2 book story or a trilogy. But I do want to know beforehand. Unfortunately, it does not happen.

In conclusion, Intensity is a great book that you MUST READ!!

So, Intensity receives 5 Huge Sparkling Golden Stars!!

He yanked me up from my seat and launched his lips on mine so fast the contact zapped me with a thousand volts. His strokes, bold at first, lightened to soft, tender kisses almost as if he was asking permission to enter—to taste.
The heat from his hands, holding my upper arms, seared me.
My fists clenched and unclenched over and over at my sides.
Touch him? Don’t touch him?
Unable to deny myself, I moved closer, aligning my body with his. My hands gravitated of their own volition, melting to his tight abs and drifting upward, over his chest and up to his neck, where I held on for the ride.
His loud groan rumbled across my breasts, and his firm arms wound around my back, crushing me against him.
For the first time in my life, I surrendered and parted my lips, ready to welcome him in. Instead of tongues diving toward one another, Linc stilled and clamped his mouth shut. As I started to step away, he clenched my hips, holding me in place. He pressed his forehead to mine and slammed his eyes closed.
Kiss me, please.
