Jeremy's Story by Ned Ericcson Blog Tour Review - book trailer - giveaway

Jeremy's Story Tour Banner

Everyone has a story.
Dealing with HIV, high school bullies, and new found feelings.
That is Jeremy’s Story.

Synopsis

Jeremy is a teenager with a terrible past.
He has to live with its consequences for the rest of his life.
There is hope.
He’s found a new family, a new life, and a new school.
Will he be able to find friends? Love?
Or will he let those who would judge him prevail?

Jeremys Story Book Cover

Jeremy's Story Excerpt 3
The older man with the strangely macho-husky voice gestured for Jeremy to follow him. He didn’t seem very happy to see Jeremy. A sharp contrast to the welcome Jeremy had received from Principal Henderson. Jeremy followed, but not before he acknowledged Jeffrey with a shy smile and a nod. Jeremy heard the whisper as he took his first steps towards the offices. “Don’t let him push you around.” With that message ringing in his ears, Jeremy entered Vice-Principal Harold Karson’s office. It was spotless. There were files all over the room, but they were stacked in neat piles, in stackable boxes that were all labeled.
OCD much? Mr. Karson grunted for Jeremy to sit down. A grunt? Really? “Excuse the mess. It’s a busy time right now.” Jeremy smiled politely and started to sit. Before he could, the vice-principal stopped him with another grunt and gestured with his free hand as he stooped down, retrieved a disposable toilet seat cover, and handed it to Jeremy. “Would you mind sitting on that? Thank you.” Jeremy frowned. He recognized that tone of voice. He’d heard plenty of that sort of talk when he’d been living on the streets right after his mother had died—that dismissive “you’re no good” tone. Never felt so worthless in my life.
His dad and stepmom had warned him that people might be uncomfortable with his HIV status. He hadn’t experienced any of that so far; he hadn’t really. His dad had actually taken a few months to shop around for schools that would understand Jeremy’s situation.
The principal of Desmond Tutu High School had been extremely welcoming—it seemed fitting considering the name of the institution—and as an added bonus, the school was close to home. Jeremy hadn’t thought any of the staff had a problem with him.
Guess I was wrong.

My Review

This is a good read. Its all about a 15 year old with HIV.

Jeremy has had a tough time, abused as a kid, survived on streets and now has HIV - all under control though thanks to the fact he found his dad and he took him in - what a lovely family he has, so supportive and caring.

Jeremy has been persuaded to go back to school, so its his first day at high school and so much happens, a boy know as Jeffrey latches onto him - and they become an item just like that, that same evening he comes out to his dad, no problem.

I don't want to go into everything that happens but let me tell you in the space of 3 days the boys are in a relationship (non-sexual of course) and the other boys dad kicks off. It all just snowballs. Among all the hassles Jeremy is well supported by his family and his new friends Jeffrey and Arnold - they are really nice trio.

Now I could see all these things happening quite easily in real life, its the time line that I found unrealistic if it was spread over 2-3 weeks it would have been more acceptable. Also Jeffrey was willing to give his family up for a boy his known 2 days....... don't get me wrong his dad was scum and very homophobic, but they had only just met!

Now all my criticism sounds like I didn't enjoy reading this book, I did would just have preferred timeline extended.

synopsis
Lily-May, wife of Detective Murray and mother to beautiful Callie, tragically goes missing, with her daughter witnessing the ordeal, but unable to save her mother from the captor's grip. Will Callie be able to live with herself?
A mystery as to where she is or how she got there and to stay alive, Lily begins a new life pretending to be someone else. Will she ever be found, or will her captor carry out the unthinkable when he learns her true identity?
Back home, Lily's husband and daughter have been left to pick up the pieces. While both suffer immeasurable pain and emptiness, Callie believes she has seen her mother on a number of occasions but has been too scared to tell her dad who, unbeknownst to her, has witnessed his own sightings of this same woman.
Has Lily returned, or is it her ghost back to haunt her daughter and husband?

MY REVIEW

This book caused my heart to race almost all the way through, I don't normally read tense books. I did enjoy this book though and had to get to end before sleeping!

Lilly has been kidnapped, she doesn't understand why, the man thinks she's someone else. She does what she has to to survive hoping it won't be long until she is found.

The books delves into and tells the story from many perspectives, the captor, the hostage, the husband and the daughter, it also goes from past to present - yes that is a lot to keep up with but it does work.

It's one of those books you really can't say much about without spoiling it.

I enjoyed the book and I am interested in reading book 2 as the author knows how to tell a story.

I had a couple of issues, the witness taking so long to come forward and captors sudden clarity.

So yes I enjoyed this book and recommend it, I would be interested to know if the small things that bothered me were just me.

This can be read as a standalone, but there is a follow on book if you want to see where things go.

* NEW RELEASE * Blood Flows Deep (Ryze #1) by N. Isabelle Blanco #pnr #erotic #review



BLURB


Formerly known as the Szolite Series. The entire series has been renamed, reworked, revamped, and is now being re-released with new scenes and details never seen before! 

. . . . . . .

Ismini 

He wants to kill me . . . More than that, he wants to see me die.
I don’t know him. I’ve only heard about him throughout my short life.
It is my destiny to die at his hand when he sacrifices me to the Fates . . .
All so that my death can bring back his obsession.
The woman he loves.
He’s my death.
But he’s more than that.
He’s the air that destroys me with each breath. An addiction I never planned on having.
I’ve mated to my killer.
Either way, I’m going to die.
The question now is if I can survive long enough for him to complete his sacrifice and bring back the woman he truly adores.

Dyletri 

Fourteen-thousand years ago, I locked away my powers.
The loss of one woman took everything from me. I made a deal to wait. To sacrifice an innocent that would be born in the far future to bring my beloved back.
Then I laid eyes on that girl . . . and everything I thought I knew got shredded to shit.
She’s reawakened the monster in me.
The madness.
The hunger.
The creature that demands a taste of her flesh.
Even worse, for the first time in my long, brutal existence, the monster is demanding her blood.
I’ve mated to my victim.
I’ll have no choice but to keep my promise. I have to sacrifice her. And the moment I do . . .
We’re both going to die. 





MY REVIEW


Ismini and Dyletri <3

This is a reworked version of this story and I was lucky to read original a couple of years ago, even luckier to be asked to read newly worked book!

This is one them books that stick with you, I love Mythology, hot men, strong women and some sexy times :) 

Ismini has a destiny, she has known for a while now and fully accepts that she has to die to keep other people safe - she isn't a weak person, she just knows she can't change destiny. Maybe the god of destiny can though......

Dyletri, was the god of lust, he hung up his boots a millennia ago. He has been waiting for his lovers twin soul to be born so he can have his lover again, he made a promise, he has to keep his promise surely?

Ismini has seen images of Dyletri and knows that she would love to get him in bed but Dyletri hasn't seen her since she was small and struggles with his reaction when they finally meet - LUST, he wants her so much but can't have her.

If you love to watch a hot man struggle and get excited to see the woman get what she wants eventually you will love this book. It has some smoking hot scenes in <3

This book has mythology, gods with fancy names and personalities that you will want to know more about. There is great banter between all the characthers and of course the story has the necessary angst.

It has been a while since I read the first version but there seemed to be more background story of the gods, the sex was as hot and the attraction of our main couple was pouring off the page. Basically I really enjoyed rereading this hot book.

5 godly stars

Sale - Struck by Eros by Jenn Windrow

51h6KVvQ+0L._UY250_

Buy now on Amazon. Only $2.99!

Blurb:

One jaded woman. Two hot men. A challenge to prove Cupid doesn't always know best. After a lifetime of dating losers, Noel Chase thinks she’s found love with college professor Len Holder. But Cupid's aim sucks worse than his crap-tacular curse, sticking her with supposed soul mate, Grayson Adler. Grayson is gorgeous, Greek, and an exact replica of the man-whores of her past. No matter what the chubby cherub thinks, Noel is sure Grayson is Mr. Wrong with a capital “W.” Forced to do Cupid’s bidding, Noel must spend her days with Grayson matchmaking the unlucky-in-loves, and trying to resist Grayson’s charm and do-me-now sex appeal. But when Cupid tries to match her fiancé, Len, with another woman, Noel must make an excruciating decision. Defy Cupid and hang on to Len? Or succumb to her fate and trust Grayson with her heart?

   Jenn

EXCERPT 1
Grayson sat up and gave me the melt-your-heart smile I’m sure made most women drop an egg. But I knew from past experience that behind his oh-so-handsome features lived a playboy heart and a wandering dick.  
EXCERPT 2
Ten… nine… eight. A wrecking ball of desire rolled through me and crashed to a stop at the crux of my legs. Some people call it lust. I call it a two by four that beats me over the head and reminds me that my life is the complete opposite of normal. Oh hell, I didn’t even make it to seven before I wanted to rip off Grayson’s clothes and ride him like a dirty cowgirl on a mechanical bull. Struck By Eros new promo
EXCERPT 3
Last month Cupid shot my size-six ass with an arrow and saddled me with the soul mate from hell. I lay on my side and looked at the snoring mountain of muscle next to me. Grayson Adler. Supposedly my perfect match in every way, but whoever was in charge of perfect matches perfectly fucked up. Even though my body shook from a Grayson-induced, post-coital high, I still loathed my couldn’t-be-more-wrong-for-me mate. However, we were stuck together for eternity because of Cupid and his craptacular curse. A wall-rattling snore broke through the hum of the air conditioner in the over-priced hotel room we met in every two weeks for our do-it-or-die conjugal visit. Grayson reached down and adjusted his erection. His hand brushed my thigh and his touch ignited a spark in my nether regions. Hot and horny, that’s how things were with Grayson and me. Sexual compatibility off the charts. Too bad the rest of our relationship itched like sand in the crotch.

Jenn Windrow loves characters that have a pinch of spunk, a dash of attitude, and a large dollop of sex appeal. Top it all off with a huge heaping helping of snark, and you’ve got the ingredients for the kind of fast paced stories she loves to read and write. Home is a suburb of it’s-so-hot-my-shoes-have-melted-to-the-pavement Phoenix. Where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and a slew of animals that seem to keep following her home, at least that’s what she claims.

Haunted by the King of Death (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 11)
Felicity Heaton

A ruthless vampire warrior, Grave Van der Garde rules the mercenary Preux Chevaliers with an iron fist, determined to retain his hard-won position as one of the most powerful men in Hell and his reputation as the heartless King of Death. But beneath the cold façade beats the heart of a vampire torn between love and hate, ripped in two directions by a single ethereally beautiful female—his fated phantom mate.
Driven by her phantom instincts, Isla used a spell to make her solid in order to deceive the vampire who killed her sister’s demon mate and have revenge on him, condemning him with a single kiss to become a phantom too. But her plan took an unexpected turn when she fell in love with him, and with her new life, and the night she betrayed him shattered both of their hearts. Now, he lives to make her suffer through their connection, one that is fading with them as they begin to slip into the phantom world, and she must face the monster she created if she is to save herself and the vampire she still loves.
With a demon from Grave’s past determined to destroy him and everything he holds dear, and the clock ticking down to their inevitable doom, can he and Isla overcome their past and their pride to work together to claim the future they both desire deep in their hearts? Or will death finally catch up with the vampire king and his phantom mate?

Haunted by the King of Death – Excerpt
She swallowed hard as she faced the palace beyond the grand white marble fountain.
It was as beautiful as she recalled, the same colours as the other buildings within the fortress, but different in style. The façade stretched across the huge square, three storeys high, with rectangular black-shuttered windows only two metres apart, the white stone casings that surrounded them a stunning contrast against the yellow render. Between each window, a white flat stone column stretched the height of the floor, appearing to hold up the matching pale stone band that ran across the top and bottom of each level.
Words carved in Latin decorated the band across the top of the ground floor, centred above the arched entrance.
Nulla Misericordia.
Isla made her way past the fountain, focusing on the gentle sound of the water to calm her rising nerves, and strode towards the entrance. Vampires passed her but none of them stopped her from advancing. In fact, most of them didn’t look at her at all.
She wasn’t sure that was a good sign.
Was Grave luring her into a trap, or did he really want to see her?
She passed under the arched entrance of his palace and her pace slowed again as the four sides of the building towered above her in its bare courtyard. The inside was darker, with the two upper floors painted in a more sombre shade of yellow that was closer to grey, and the casings of the windows, the bands that delineated each level and the flat decorative columns all made of black marble.
The ground floor was different too, set back under the building, with rows of narrow arches supporting the upper floors and thick black columns between them.
She kept an eye on the guards who loitered in the shadows under the arches, aware of their eyes on her.
Her nerves started to get the better of her as she crossed the courtyard, her body and mind responding exactly as whoever had built it had intended. It was a building made to intimidate, to unsettle the visitor and set them on edge.
It captured the nature of the one who had ordered it perfectly, creating a vision of power and importance, but elegance too.
Grave.
Isla rubbed her damp hands on her leathers as she stepped up onto the raised path that ran beneath all the columned sides of the building and through the double-width black-framed doorway. Her eyes took a moment to adjust to the darkness on the other side, but she kept moving forwards, afraid that if she stopped she would run away.
Oil lamps flickered around the square entrance hall, illuminating the huge gold-framed paintings hanging on the black wall and the imposing white marble staircases that ran up both walls to meet in a curve at the first floor.
A second set of curved marble staircases ran from beside the top of the first ones, sweeping back towards the wall behind her to join with the second floor, and high above her an enormous chandelier hung in the open space between the two floors.
Isla kept an eye on it as she passed under it, her boots silent on the white marble tiles. She never had trusted it. It seemed too large and weighty to hang from such a slender chain.
She walked straight ahead, through another double-width doorway beneath the staircase, and her steps slowed further as she entered the corridor between the entrance hall and the audience room.
Isla turned her gaze towards the black marble floor, keeping her eyes off the grotesque display of mounted heads that lined the obsidian walls. She had dared to look at them once, had been horrified when she had found herself somewhat captivated by the gruesome collection and the way the light from the oil lamps flickered across them, a dancing of shadows that made them come alive.
Another trick meant to intimidate, designed to strike fear into the hearts of those who desired to make a pact with the vampire mercenaries of the Preux Chevaliers and their infamous leader.
Isla lifted her head as she cleared the corridor and her heart almost stopped in her chest.
Grave lounged on his ebony throne on the raised black platform opposite her in the pale-walled room, his scarred chest bare between the two open sides of his black dress shirt. A crystal goblet hung from between his long fingers and he raised it slowly, bringing it to his lips. He lazily sipped the blood, painting his firm lips crimson, his ice blue eyes on her the entire time.
She fought to find her voice as she stood before him in the bare room, but it wouldn’t come as he stared at her, cold and silent, as grim and dark as Hell itself.
His malice rolled through her, his hatred filling the room.
Scarlet ringed his frosty eyes.
The silence seemed to stretch into forever, thickening with each second that she stood in it without saying anything. She didn’t know what to say. She didn’t know how to break the silence.
What could she say?
There were a thousand things but nothing at the same time.
The longer he stared at her, the stronger a feeling within her grew, until she was close to looking away from him, unable to hold his gaze as her insides churned.
Guilt.
The man before her was so different to the one she had tricked into kissing her, so much darker, and it was her fault. She was responsible for the changes that had taken place, turning a passionate and attentive vampire into a powerful, dark and deadly monster.
And now she had to ask the monster she had made for a sliver of compassion, for his help.
She didn’t deserve it, but she still dared to hope that he would give her the help she needed because he would fade too if they didn’t do something about their bond.
His eyes narrowed on her and glittered with ice as he lowered the goblet to rest on the arm of his throne.
“Come to finish the job, Isla?” His voice darkened as he eyed the handles of the two blades strapped to her lower back. “I can see no other reason you would crawl back to me.”
The phantom instincts she tried so hard to contain got the better of her and she took a hard step towards him. “You deserved what you got.”
“Did I?” He chuckled mirthlessly, a bitter hollow sound that she didn’t like, not when she had heard him truly laugh with joy. “I seem to always get what I deserve.”
She wasn’t sure what he meant by that, but the distant look in his eyes and the feelings she could sense in him said it wasn’t directed at her. Something was troubling him. She glanced at his chest, at the fresh healing scars on it, and the ones on his handsome face too. He had been in a battle again. Had something happened there?
He idly swung the goblet back and forth, his pale eyes locked on it as the blood sloshed side to side.
“It is nice to still be able to hold things.” His gaze slid towards her and darkened, his voice little more than a snarl as he glared at her. “Would you not agree?”
She fought the urge but her eyes still dropped to her blue boots.
“We have a problem,” she whispered.
“No, I have a problem. More than one but let us focus on the one that stems from you.” Grave’s grim tone had her lifting her head again, pinning him with a look she knew conveyed every ounce of curiosity running through her blood because he scowled at her in the way he always did when daring her to say something when he wanted her silent. He stood sharply and the goblet in his hand came flying at her so fast she barely had time to dodge it. It exploded against the wall behind her and she flinched. Grave growled. “You get to go back to being the phantom you are. I fail to see how that is a problem for you, Isla. You can lure more men to their doom with that pretty smile and those wicked curves. You must have grown bored of being stuck in this world, bound to one male… unable to get your fill of—”
“We will not become phantoms,” Isla interjected, unable to bear any more of his barbs.
He fell silent, stood there before his throne staring at her again, staring right through her in that way he had perfected, reducing her back to the meek female she hated with all of her heart but couldn’t seem to stop becoming in his presence.
She looked down at her boots.
“If we do not become phantoms… what do we become?” His calm and collected tone sent a shiver through her, a warning that she was treading on thin ice. “What will this do to us?”
This male was at his most dangerous when he was like this, outwardly unaffected by anything, but inwardly churning with anger, with darkness that ruled him and began to show in his eyes as the scarlet gained ground against the pale blue.
Fire and ice.
Grave was made of them. A beautiful contradiction. Two elements that shouldn’t be able to live together but somehow he made it work, harnessed both to his advantage.
Savage bloodlust.
Ironclad calm.
Isla tipped her chin up and faced her fears head on, because all he could do to her was exactly what was going to happen to her anyway if he refused to help. “It will kill us.”
His handsome face turned sombre, lips flattening for a moment, before his expression darkened and eyes narrowed on her.
“And I am meant to believe this?”
Isla frowned back at him. “Believe what you want. It is the truth, Grave.”
“Do not speak my name,” he barked, so loud that it echoed around the room and she tensed, instinctively took a step back towards the door as his rage poured over her and shone in his scarlet eyes. “You do not have the right to speak it. Not anymore.”
Isla lowered her eyes and they caught on his chest, on a chain around it and a pendant she could see now that he had stood, causing it to fall from beneath the sides of his black shirt.
The delicate silver Celtic knot nestled in the valley between his pectorals.
The ancient symbol was one of protection, designed for a loved one.
A phantom symbol.
A gift that she had given him.
A spark of hope ignited in her chest.
Grave lifted his hand, slipped his fingers beneath the pendant and raised it, drawing her eyes up with it. They jumped back to his face when the pendant reached his chin and she searched his eyes, aching for a sign that whatever feelings he’d had for her still existed somewhere inside him and that he would help her.
“I wear this,” he said in a low voice, soft and almost tender as he gazed at the symbol of her affection. “I wear this to remind me of your lies… a reminder of what you did to me, in case I am ever foolish enough to forget it… to relinquish my mission to make you suffer.”
The spark of hope inside her stuttered and died.
His face blackened and he curled his fingers around the pendant as he scowled at her, the red bleeding from his eyes, leaving them icy cold blue again.
“If death is the price you must pay for what you have done, so be it, Isla.” He turned away from her, stepped off the platform and walked towards the open door in the back right corner of the room.
Isla took swift steps towards him, panic rising to swallow her as he stepped through the doorway.
Her entire body tensed when he slammed the dark wooden door in her face.
Her knees wobbled but she refused to collapse, forced herself to stand tall.
She had been a fool to hope Grave would help her. She never should have listened to her sister. Melia didn’t know him like she did. Now she had wasted another day in which she could have been hunting for a phantom mage.
But worse than that, she ached more than ever for Grave.
Isla pressed her right hand to her chest and closed her eyes, focused on the mark on her back between her shoulder blades, near her heart. It warmed, tingling on her skin, but then the connection that had been opening slammed shut in her face just as the door had.
She turned away from it, lifted her chin and let her hand fall away from her heart.
If Grave wouldn’t help her, then she would track down a phantom mage alone. She would do all in her power to stop what was happening to her, and to Grave.
She would save him somehow.
She owed him that much.
She couldn’t undo what she had done...
Isla stilled.

Arc Review

Another installment in F Heaton's Eternal Mates series - happy days.

This book is all about Grave, he has appeared in other books as the slightly grumpy vampire. Grave lives to fight, he has no other life since he was hurt by a woman, Isla.

Isla is a phantom, she should have no permanent form other than if she chooses to mate with someone a who is solid. Isla was solid but of late she's losing her form, that wouldn't be a problem but it appears she's in more danger than she first thought.

Grave and Isla make a great mating in my opinion, there story is full of drama with warm moments and not forgetting sexy scenes that heat up the book perfectly. We have a wait in them getting together physically, but there dreams/visions are very hot too.

I really liked Isla's story, it is no sunshine story, in fact it is quite sad - luckily she has a hot vamp on her side. 

Grave, what's not to like his a dark and dangerous vampire, on the moody side but he has a warm heart and a yearning for his family, Isla didn't have a chance really - I think that's why she kept away!

If you love a happy ever after with action and some angst you will love this series.

4.5 stars

Synopsis

No man has ever tempted Melina Blackwood to break her rules about getting involved with warlocks. At least, that was the case before meeting Trevor Dupree—a warlock who would need an accountant to figure out how many witches he’s been with. Trevor infuriates her, confuses her, but most of all, he makes her long for his touch. Turning him down wasn’t easy the first time, and she’s not sure she can resist the temptation now that Trevor is willing to do anything to make her his.
Trevor Dupree has been infatuated with far too many witches, believing every witch he’s dated had the potential to be the one he’d spend the rest of his life with. Melina Blackwood changed all of that, but the irritating witch not only turned him down, she practically filed a restraining order to keep him away. Six months later, she’s still the only witch he wants, and he has no intention of letting her walk away again.
One woman can prevent Melina and Trevor from finding their happily ever after. Her obsession with Trevor will drive her to do whatever it takes to possess him.
