SYNOPSIS

Alexis Marchand is one of the biggest movie stars in the world, loved by millions of fans around the globe. Her meteoric rise to fame has come with its fair share of heartache, but she’s remained strong, thanks to those closest to her and their unfailing support. Life as a movie star is good.
Until one day a simple letter arrives and turns her world upside down. Now she lives in terror, afraid of that one fan who has taken it too far.
Hunter McKary knows something of movie stars because of his time as a LAPD detective. He thought he left those days behind him, but when he’s sent to find out who’s stalking the beautiful blond actress the world adores, he grudgingly goes to New York, expecting to find a typical spoiled diva like those he met so many times before back in LA.
The woman he finds isn’t anything like he expected, and a job he dreaded becomes something else entirely. But someone out there has different plans for Alexis.

Behind The Scenes Excerpt
After pacing until her legs felt like they’d give out, Alexis closed the door behind her and settled into the most comfortable spot in the house—her new office chair. Plush and comfy, it practically swallowed her up in its softness, just what she needed to feel safe again. She still felt trapped in her own home, but at least in that dark blue chair, she could pretend that her life hadn’t become a series of tiny rooms connected by dark hallways.
She began reading a script her agent Melanie had told her about weeks ago and had finally been delivered to her the day before she left LA. Titled Haunted By Love, it told the story of a woman who was being haunted by her dead husband, who everyone believed she killed. Alexis had only gotten a third of the way into the story, but she already hated it with a white hot passion.
All the parts she got offered were the same. All the characters felt delicate and frail, like at any moment in the film someone could come up behind them and say boo and they’d crumble into a thousand terrified pieces.
She wanted to play strong women. Kickass women. Characters who could stand on their own and brave whatever the big, bad world threw at them. Instead, the woman she sat reading sounded far too much like herself lately.
Terrorized and afraid to leave her house.
Pitching the script onto the floor, she brought her knees up to her chest and closed her eyes. This was how she’d spend the rest of the day. Curled up in a ball and pretending the world outside didn’t exist.
A knock on her office door ruined that plan not five minutes later, though. Why couldn’t they just leave her alone?
She leaned back on the arm of the chair and yelled in the direction of the door, “I’m busy. Whatever it is, talk to Lauren!”
As she watched in horror, the door opened against her explicit instructions and Paul walked in with a man Alexis had never seen before. Smiling, her manager showed the man off like he’d just created him in a lab or something.
“Alexis, this is Hunter McKary. He’s the man we talked about earlier today. He just arrived, so I wanted to introduce the two of you.”
Her gaze traveled from Paul to this Hunter person and then down the full length of his body, from head to toe. Her first impression was he looked like a cop. Or someone who could play a cop in the movies. He had short brown hair a little too much like that ex of hers, but his face had a rugged look she liked in men. This Hunter certainly didn’t have a pretty boy appearance so many of her co-stars had lately.
He didn’t smile, which unnerved her. There he stood in her home and he couldn’t even crack a tiny smile on their introduction? That seemed rude. He was probably one of those stereotypical overly serious bodyguard types she’d never liked.
She did like how that rugged look made him appear tough, so maybe she could tolerate the sour puss thing he had going on. For once, though, she wished the men who came into her life didn’t look like stone cut outs of real men.
As that drifted through her mind, her gaze slid down to his body again. He looked hard there too, like he could protect someone. Well, if his job was going to be doing just that for her, he fit the bill.
“Alexis, did you hear me?” Paul asked, tearing her out of her thoughts about Hunter.
She stood up and extended her hand to shake his hand. “It’s nice to meet you, Hunter. How long have you been a bodyguard?”
He shook her hand for a moment and then pulled his away abruptly. “I’m not a bodyguard. I spent time as an LAPD detective, and now I work for Project Artemis as a specialist helping people who need protection. A bodyguard is what the world will think I am, but trust me. I’m far more than just a mere bodyguard.”
She stood shocked at how terse he’d been. Unnecessarily terse considering she’d been more than polite with him. 
Cocky men were top on her list of things she didn’t want to deal with in life, so she needed him to understand she wouldn’t be treated rudely like that, no matter how much Paul thought of his boss.
“Well, if you’re anything like the cops in LA now, I don’t see what you could possibly do for me. They haven’t been able to find out the identity of my stalker for months, and I’ve had to move clear across the country because they couldn’t do their jobs.”
Hunter remained stone-faced as she spoke, and when she finished, he said nothing to her. Not a single word. Instead, he turned toward Paul and said, “I need to know the layout of this whole place. Anywhere someone can get in, I want to know about it.”
Then he walked out, leaving her standing there feeling insulted and wondering what made this guy think he could pull that cocky shit on her. How dare he ignore her like that! He worked for her. Who did he think he was?
  Paul remained behind, smiling as if things had gone swimmingly. God, did he ever not think everything was just fine?
Pointing at the door Hunter had just walked through when he left so rudely, she asked, “And you think that person is going to be the one who helps me get my life back?”
He looked away and nodded. “Well, he isn’t exactly the chattiest guy in the world, but I trust Persephone. If she thinks he can help, I say give him a chance.”
“Says the man who promised me that moving cross country to this awful place would solve my problems. I’m guessing this Persephone finds his Cro-Magnon routine perfectly acceptable, but I don’t. If you think I’m going to take being treated like that in my own home by some for-hire security guard, you can forget it. Tell him to go find a job at the mall because I’m not having it!”
Alexis sat back down on her comfy chair and folded her arms across her chest as steam practically shot out the top of her head she was so furious at Paul for bringing that man to her home. She wouldn’t be treated like some insignificant thing who didn’t even deserve an answer by any man, least of all some stranger in her own home.
“Lexi, just listen to me. Give him a chance. I promise you Persephone wouldn’t have sent him if she didn’t think he could help. Just give him a week. If you don’t like him by that time, then he’s gone. Promise me you’ll give him at least that long, though?”
The look on Paul’s face told her he was worried, and he had good reason to be. She’d had enough of men pushing her around for an entire lifetime. She wouldn’t be taking this Hunter guy’s shit not one more time.
“The problem isn’t with me, so you’re wasting your breath talking to me, Paul. The problem is with him. He’s rude to the person he’s supposed to be helping and in her own house, no less. If he can’t change his attitude, then he’ll have to leave and not after a week. Now. So you have a choice. You can continue to stand here and stare at me with that terrified look in your eyes, or you can go find your friend’s guy and explain to him how things go here at Casa Alexis. Whatever you do, shut the door on your way out and tell Lauren I want to see her.”
He scurried away, knowing full well she meant every word she’d said. She didn’t make hollow threats. Not to men who cheated on her and then thought she’d merely stand idly by when they stepped out with other women, and certainly not about a man she’d just met and already didn’t like enough to want him thrown out into the street on his ear.
Reaching down, she picked up the script for Haunted By Love off the floor and flipped to the last page she’d read. After only a few lines, it became apparent trying to focus on anything would be a complete waste of time, so she threw the script across the room in frustration. It knocked over a lamp, which crashed to the floor and smashed into a million pieces.
This day just got better and better.
Her head began to pound from a stress headache as a result of Hunter McKary and his rudeness. She didn’t want to play a victim in any more films or in her own life either anymore. Even more, she didn’t want to be someone the Hunters of the world thought they could ignore so easily and never pay a price.
She heard a light tap on the door she recognized as Lauren’s signature knock and called out, “Come in!”
Her best friend and assistant peeked her head around the door and smiled. “Paul said you wanted to see me?”
Alexis nodded and waved her in. “Yes. I need to see a friendly face after meeting that odious man.”
Lauren closed the door and came over to sit down on the floor in front of her. With her usual sweetness, she touched her hand and smiled. “It didn’t go so well? He looked very handsome, at least.”
Handsome didn’t matter if the man had the manners of a pig.
“Nothing special, if you ask me. I’ve dated much better looking men, so whatever he thinks he’s got going on, it isn’t much.”
“What made him so odious?” Lauren asked innocently.
Alexis opened her mouth to explain what happened, but nothing came out. She was so furious. The man had actually made her speechless.
Finally, she said, “I don’t want to talk about it now. Just take my word for it. He won’t be here long if he doesn’t realize who’s the boss here.”
“It’s your home, Alexis. Paul needs to understand that if you don’t want someone in it, they need to go. I think he’s forgotten that lately.”
She smiled down at Lauren. “Thank you for reminding me. This is why you’re irreplaceable, you know that? Everyone else could go away, but as long as I have you to rely on, I know I’ll be okay.”
“You can rely on me. Always. Never forget that.”
Alexis closed her eyes and took a deep breath in. At least she had one person she could trust in the world.



My Review- 5 Stars!

The Project Artemis series was so enjoyable and I am sad that this is the last one as of now. K.M. Scott and Anina Collins wrote such a fantastic series. It had me on the edge of my seat with the suspense aspects. I loved watching the relationship between Alexis and Hunter develop. This installment was beautifully written, the character development was fantastic, and the book kept me drawn in from the very first line to the last.

I would absolutely recommend the entire series for those who love suspense, action, and of course romance! The Hollywood Star, Bodyguard scenario was a new one for me as I typically don’t jump at those types of books but because of these two fantastic authors I will be giving them all a chance from now on and will be definitely reading more from these two authors. An absolute five star read!

Bolt 4 – Synopsis  


 

Can love ignite a soul darkened by vengeance? 


 

Life is beyond different as the girlfriend of a retired superhero, but to Emmalina Crist, the reward of loving Reece Richards is worth the cost. But when she comes across proof that Reece has been hiding a significant secret from her, their relationship is irrevocably rocked. 


 

Reece might have hung up his crime-fighting leathers, but he’s continued dancing with danger by working covertly with ex-FBI hotshot Sawyer Foley to learn more about the Consortium—and how they can beat the sadistic scientists at their own game. While Reece denies revenge as his motivation for the hunt, he’s forced to reexamine his motivations when Sawyer brings a questionable ally into their inner circle—and a distraught Emma finds out. 


 

Now, Reece has never been closer to unveiling the Consortium—but at what cost? His honor? His life? And what about the woman who has helped him redefine both? Is he willing to let Emma go in the name of vengeance? Or will their love be the light his soul truly needs?




Bolt 5 – Synopsis 


 

Driven apart by fear… Reunited by danger… 


 

Though it’s tearing him up, Reece Richards is determined to honor his woman’s wishes for some time alone in New York to work with the nonprofit organization she now leads—until a secret missive from the Consortium changes everything, forcing him to fly to the Big Apple in the name of protecting Emmalina Crist from those who wish to do her harm. 


 

His plans on watching over her from afar are blown apart when her life is threatened—but even though he’s in exactly the right place at the right time, she’s not happy to see the man she left on the West Coast so she could get some clarity. 


 

Now, her perspective is more jumbled than ever. She loves Reece, but doubts from her past and confusion about the present form a wall around her heart, making her wonder if she’s strong enough to be with a man—a superhero—like him on a long-term basis. Though their bodies burn for each other, is the bond of their souls just as formidable? Or is she the weak link in Reece’s armor that he can’t afford?

Bolt #4 Review-

Angel Payne!!!!!!! This saga just keeps getting better and better! Bolt Saga #4 picked up where #3 left off. Reece and Emma are working to bring the new nonprofit wing of Richard’s Resorts to life. These two are trying to figure out life together with Emma’s career path picking up and her traveling.

Part 4 takes the saga in a totally different direction then I could even imagine. Angel keeps you hooked on the story right up to the last page and with a cliffhanger that makes you pick up Part 5 immediately! The chemistry between Reece and Emma keeps the pages plenty steamy, I loved how what I expected to happen didn’t and I was given a completely new aspect to this couples journey to follow.

I have been BOLTED and I LOVE it!

Bolt #5 Review-

Emmalina and Reece are back in part 5! Another steamy addition to this saga. I have absolutely loved the Bolt Saga and can’t wait to see what #6 brings us!

Emma has a new job, yet her thoughts are scattered and Emma decides to take to take some space apart. She knows she truly loves Reece but her thoughts keep her guessing on how she should act. Reece had sworn to put Emma first, which is the only reason he agreed to this distance that separates them. That is until he hears about the Consortium being up to no good. He knows he has to protect Emma at whatever cost.

I absolutely loved this addition to the saga. These two always are electric together and keep you flipping pages at lightning speed. Angel Payne has written such a masterpiece with the entire saga and each installment gets better than the last!

My Review- 5 Stars!!

This book was absolutely fantastic. I am new to Ashton Blackthorne, but I am so glad I gave this author a chance! I certainly do not regret picking this up at all. The book was written fantastically, it was emotional, it was dark, it sucked you in from the very first page and made me invested in all of the characters.

There was plenty of lust, love, anger, betrayal, and I loved every single second of it! This family has endured so much and the way they handle trying to get through it all was absolutely fascinating to read.

This is the final book in this series, but even having not read the others I was able to follow along and understand what was happening. This followed Ash, Amber, Ayden and several supporting characters and I enjoyed them all! There is so much mystery to this book. There was so much suspense and the passion from each of these characters had me reading as fast I could.

I’m an Ashton Blackthorne fan for life now!

My Review- 5 Stars!
I’m newer to Red Phoenix books and I have to say I absolutely loved this book and cannot wait to read more!

Charlie Walker had a few goals in mind that he was determined to tackle. One which was to graduate high school and second was to join the Army. Charlie did that and with his years of service completely behind him, he learns about the world of BDSM, and embraces it fully.

Candy Cox had absolutely everything in her world stripped away from her. Candy finds freedom in the BDSM world and wants nothing more than to wear the collar of the man that has now stolen her heart. She embraces the submissive side. Captain knows that he isn’t what Candy needs in her life, but he knows one thing and that is he loves her too.

This book was so emotional and took you on such a roller coaster. There is drama, action, turmoil, love, lust, you name it. Red Phoenix will definitely be on my “one click” list now that I have read this.

Bolt Saga OneA powerful man… A shocking secret… 

Working the nightshift at a five-star hotel in downtown Los Angeles, Emmalina Crist has had her fair share of strange encounters. But none of them have prepared her for the experience of meeting the enigmatic Reece Richards. 

Emma’s connection with Reece is hot as hell and impossible to ignore, resulting in a night of passion that’s unlike anything she’s ever experienced―but even the man’s magical lips and hands aren’t worth repeating the indiscretion. Sleeping with the boss―especially when he’s one of the world’s most notorious players―is a dire mistake under normal circumstances, but even more so with business booming because of Bolt, the mysterious “superhero” turning downtown LA into a truly supercharged tourist destination. 

What if Reece could tell Emma their electric attraction is more than just passionate chemistry? That the superhero she celebrates and the lover she resists are the same man? Reece knows that sharing his secret with Emma means exposing her to the same lunatics who are out to destroy him. Can he take that chance? 

 

Bolt Saga TwoThe man behind the mask… The love she can’t give up… 

Sometimes, fighting the flames only fans them―as Emma Crist and Reece Richards have quickly learned. But Reece’s secret identity threatens their electric attraction when a face from his past reappears, leading to a confrontation that changes everything. 

Emma now knows the truth about what Reece does in his “spare time.” But what can she do about it? The man behind Bolt’s mask is the love she refuses to give up―but she’s not alone. A band of rogue scientists still want their prize lab rat back, and they’ve enlisted Reece’s gorgeous and dangerous ex-girlfriend to help.Emma’s always known she’s wanted more than your typical average relationship―but what happens when destiny comes with danger? Is the power of love strong enough to survive supercharged evil? 

Bolt Saga ThreeBolted…and bonded… 

 

Happily ever after is a much different experience when the whole world is along for the ride―especially when life is racing at Mach speed and the prince is a real-life superhero. But Emmalina Crist is doing her best to keep pace ever since being swept off her feet by the charismatic Reece Richards, bad boy billionaire turned world’s most electrifying superhero. 

She’s the most envied woman on the planet, but also its most confused. How does life ever return to “normal”? She’s captured the globe’s most renowned bachelor and she’s the media’s new darling because of it―but thanks to the Consortium’s relentless pursuit, the idea of losing Reece at any second is her new reality. There’s no instruction manual for dating a superhero. But when a girl is bolted by true love, she must find the courage to reach beyond reality, expectations, and even herself, in a fight for the ultimate power. Everlasting love.

My Review- 5 Bolted Stars!!!

My expectations for this book were HIGH, and I was NOT disappointed! Angel Payne absolutely slayed this book and I cannot wait for the next installment! Reece Richards is a rich playboy by birth, turned Superhero by a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or was it? Bolt had me turning pages as quickly as possible!

Emmalina (Emma) Crist is running from a life of privilege so she moves to LA and takes a job as a Reservations Manager at Hotel Brocade. Reece just happens to own the hotel. Reece and Emma meet while working and it is like SPARKS, INSTALUST, WOWZAAA, KABAMMMM! (Seriously it is!) I have absolutely enjoyed following Reece and Emma’s journey together and cannot wait for the next installment.

Bolt comes from The Misadventures With A Super Hero book from the Misadventures Series. I had read the Misadventures version first and was hooked! Angel Payne is rocking the Bolt Saga and I need more!

With a pull stronger than anything I have ever
known, I march down the aisle compelled to surrender to the darkness.
With these rings… I become their bride to keep.
*This is a standalone full-length dark reverse
harem. Dirty taboo with not just one, but four. You may be afraid to walk down
the aisle on this one.

My Review- 5 Dark Stars!!

The spiral has honestly left me at a loss of words. This book really was a complete and total mind f–k for me, but not in a bad way.

Madeline was dealing with domestic violence from her husband. While she may have felt and looked at her weakest during the beginning of this book, you quickly learn how extremely strong she is. Her rock bottom pushed her to leave, pushed her to try to find peace, and pushed her to not take sh-t from anyone!

Jack suffered great loss, and was completely broken from the loss of his wife and son. His life is spiraling out of control and he is on a mission to find some type of peace although he doesn’t quite know how to achieve it.

This story was genuinely deep, full of so many emotions. It was dark, it was twisted, there was turmoil, and kept you on your toes. It wound up being such a beautiful story that will for sure stick with its readers for a long time to come.

#MisadventureswithaRockStar

Synopsis:

Heather Myles isn’t exactly thrilled to accompany her groupie roommate to an Emerald Phoenix concert. The aspiring screen writer would rather be home with a good book. After Susie pleads with her, though, Heather relents. What the heck? Maybe a change of scenery is just what she needs to combat her desolation over getting turned down by yet another small production company.

After the performance, Jett Draconis, lead singer and guitarist for the band, isn’t up for the party scene. He’s grown tired of being mauled by horny devotees…until an auburn-haired goddess catches his eye. Though she initially rebuffs his advances, he’s determined not to take no for an answer. Sparks erupt between him and Heather, but Jett knows better than to fall in love. A secret from his past could destroy him—and everyone close to him—if he does.

My Review- 5 Stars!

Another fantastic Helen Hardt book, and a fantastic addition to this unforgettable series!

Misadventures with a Rock Star was everything that I expected from a Helen Hardt read. It kept me turning pages and left me completely satisfied.

Heather Myles goes to see the band Emerald Phoenix with her roommate. Little does she know as she stands around in the “groupie” area after the show that she’s going to meet Jett a man that just won’t quit. As she looks at the scene playing out around her she knows she is completely out of place and decides in that moment that she wants to leave. While Heather is outside awaiting her ride, Jett introduces himself after she catches his eye. Heather is absolutely attracted to Jett, but she ultimately isn’t interested in hooking up with him.

Jett has sold his soul to the devil to get himself to the top. Looking in from the outside you have to wonder, how could this guys life get any better? He’s rich, famous, and can have any woman he wants. Except he knows he wants more. In my opinion, he has demons and he doesn’t quite know how to push them aside so he can redeem who he truly is. While he enjoys the good times with his bandmates he knows he ultimately wants to play classically.

These two will risk a lot to learn more about each other, and it’s a journey you definitely want to take with them. There are some scorching scenes in this book, but I loved the emotional trying scenes as well. These characters will stay with me for a long time to come.

Blurb
Wall Street
Journal bestselling author Ilsa
Madden-Mills and
USA Today
bestselling author Tia Louise are back with an all-new romantic comedy filled
with Southern sass and steamy scenes that will have you laughing out loud and
fanning yourself. Pour the sweet tea and get ready…
“The best way to get
over your sh**ty ex-fiancé is to get under a shiny new stud…”
As soon as
Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I
need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle.
A few
stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home
run—until he disappears without a trace.
Whatever.
Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway.
I resolve
to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on
turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B.
What I
don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen!
You see, my
sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home
improvement star of The Right Stud, and
he’s got an offer I can’t refuse.
With a
suitcase in one hand and a hammer in the other, he wants to move in and
renovate my old house while he films his new show.
But my
roommate has secrets, and they threaten to rip our blossoming friendship—and
possible love—apart.
When push
comes to shove, is Jax really The Right
Stud
or is he just another nail in the coffin of love?

My Review- 5 Stars!

Life sucks for Ashton in general. From catching her fiancee cheating, her grandmother passing away and her trying to save her childhood home and memories. With this book you will go through quite the journey with Ashton. There’s parts that have completely inappropriate characters, crazy and fun friends. There are so many laughs, so much steamy scenes and all of it is just perfection!

I read this book in one sitting and I will definitely be reading it again in the future. The characters will stick with me for a long time. Jax is everything and absolutely slayed me. You’ll absolutely love him! I just loved these two!
