Cover Reveal for Strong Enough 
By Alexis Alexander

Getting  To Know 
Alexis Alexander
Author of Strong Enough
Mike Crowson
Cover Model/Muse

"You should fear how great you can be, not how big you can fail." ~ Mike 
     Part two focuses on Mike. I'm not going to bore you too much with his biography because I want you to go to his webpages & check him out. As you will see in this interview Mike is very intelligent, thoughtful, considerate, forth right, funny, motivated, & humble, just to name a few things. 

      This interview is not heavily edited. I want you to hear Mike's answers in their entirety.  If you really listen to his answers I think you will be as impressed by this young man as I was. As much as his accomplishments in what he has achieved with his body need to be acknowledged, he is more than a face or a body to look at & drool over. I can't tell you what "it" is that he has that makes him so driven to succeed. I can say there need to be more people like him.

     Mike is the middle child of 3 boys. He played baseball until being injured. You'll often see his Father in pictures at his bodybuilding competitions. One of his goals this year is to turn IFPB Pro. He has also launched his own "personal trainer in a pocket" website, 

I can also agree with Alexis that he doesn't take a bad picture. Not one time does he have a weird expression on his face when the video is frozen. It's annoying. I'm joking....well kind of. ;)

     I hope you enjoy getting to know Mike & wish him success in his journey to New York.
"Success is a journey, not a destination." ~ Unknown

Seven days. And seven rules to break…

District Attorney Vanessa MacGregor firmly believes that structure and order are the stuff that dreams are made of. Happiness can be planned—and it starts with the seven rules she’s laid out for her future. But as she’s organizing her best friend’s wedding in Hawaii, all of Vanessa’s best-laid plans are about to meet their match in a wickedly hot MMA fighter…

Jackson "Jax" Maris is focused on surfing, training, and fighting. That is, until he opens up his big mouth and finds himself having to pretend he’s engaged to his little sister’s best friend, Vanessa. When they’re forced to share a romantic bungalow, however, their little charade suddenly takes a turn for the seriously sexy. And while Jax is definitely not part of Vanessa’s long-term plan, he has seven days—and seven naughty nights—to turn her seven-rule plan upside down.


Rules of Entanglement (ROE) is the 2nd book in the Fighting for Love Series, with Seducing Cinderella, being book #1.  In Seducing Cinderella we are introduced to Vanessa MacGregor, a smart mouthed, energetic, very structured woman, who is Lucie's best friend.  Vanessa  created her "Lucky 7" Rules to Live By.  The questions is, WHY DID VANESSA REALLY CREATE THESE RULES??? 

I have to say that I was captivated with ROE from Chapter 1.  I found Jax so appealing, that I just wanted to know more about him.  Jax has never met a woman like Vanessa.  Jax is used to women falling on his every word, women aiming to please him, but that all changed the moment he met Vanessa. 

Vanessa is never short on words and will not allow anyone to call the shots, including a hot MMA fighter named Jax Maris, even if it is her best friend, Lucie's brother.  Vanessa has built wall around her heart and she refuses to allow a man to hurt her.  Will Vanessa open her heart to Jax?  Will Jax be able to break down those walls?  

As Jax and Vanessa spent time together, I loved the bantering between the two.  I found it absolutely hysterical and was laughing out loud while reading the book.  Vanessa was definitely a challenge to Jax and she was not going to make anything easy.  I felt the connection immediately between Jax and Vanessa, it was as though I knew them personally. 

Jax is absolutely YUMMY.  I thought Reid (Jax's best friend and Lucie's fiance) was a total sweetheart, but Jax definitely gave Reid a run for his money.  Jax may be a tatted up MMA fighter, but he is a total teddy bear and knows all the right things to say to charm the panties off of a lady. 

Rules of Entanglement will have you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what is going to happen next.  I could not put the book down, I pulled an all nighter because the suspense was killing me and I had to know what was going to happen next. 

Throughout the entire book, I was standing on the sidelines routing for Jax.  I wanted Vanessa to find love and have true happiness.  BUT, you will have to read the book to know what happens because I will not give any spoilers away....  But I will tell ya one thing,  RULES OF ENTANGLEMENT is a MUST READ !!!!! 

I look forward to reading more books in this series, and I hope we get more of Reid, Lucie,
Jax and Vanessa.

COVER REVEAL ~ "Search Me" by Katie Ashley


Nineteen year old Lane Montgomery never imagined her usually boring summer in the boonies would require her to trade her toe shoes for hunting boots or her monotonous college textbooks for treasure map deciphering. Never would she have imagined after breaking her grandmother’s precious Native American statue, danger, a lost treasure of Cherokee Gold and a hostage situation would arise. Nor could she predict that the one man destined to protect her and her family was her childhood nemesis and former crush, Maddox Diaz.

Returning after three years in the Army, twenty-two year old Maddox Diaz is confronted with more than he bargained for when agreeing to help his childhood buddy and deepest regret, Lane. Suddenly he is thrust into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with armed and ruthless treasure seekers that results in car chases and gun battles all in the presence of the one girl who still manages to haunt his dreams and drive him wild with desire.

Lane is determined to deny the sizzling chemistry with the man who stole her virginity and broke her heart. She just wants to stay alive with her heart intact. Will she be able to resist the man whose body sets fire to all her senses?

Getting to Know Alexis Alexander & Mike Crowson Part One


Getting  To Know 
Alexis Alexander
Author of Strong Enough
Mike Crowson
Cover Model/Muse

          I had the pleasure to spend a couple of hours chatting with soon to be published author Alexis Alexander and her cover model/muse, Fitness Model Mike Crowson. They relaxed in bed (separately, get your minds out of the gutter, ladies) while we chatted. They were fun to get to know. I learned a few interesting things about each of them. I learned some interesting tidbits, like Mike’s philosophy of “I can’t hear can’t.” I tried to think about how much that made sense. Then I tried to think about how much it didn’t make sense, but it made my feeble brain hurt, so I stopped. I hope you enjoy reading & watching their interviews as much as I did.

         This will be a 3 part series. In Part One we get to know more About Alexis & her writing, with a few tidbits from Mike. Part Two is Mike’s getting to know you segment. Part Three will be a question & answer session with Alexis about her book Strong Enough.

Getting to know you with author Alexis Alexander.....
         Alexis is the author of the soon to be published new adult novel, Strong Enough. A military brat who graduated from high school at 16 & went on to attend Texas Tech & graduate from Wayland Baptist with a BS in Business Management. Later she received her Masters in Adult Curriculum and Instruction Education. She currently practices as a wealth manager, but hopes to enroll in law school next fall. Her goal is to practice Business & Entertainment Law.
        Learning the guitar has taken a back seat to book writing for the time being. Alexis hopes to pick it back up soon & resume her second life in music. She is a movie loving pool shark with a shoe & purse fetish. Her family is a big part of her life with her teenage daughter, 2 pugs, older brother whom she describes the other pea in her pod,  father & step mother, along with her friends.

Mike help us get to know Alexis, please.
        When I was first contacted by Alexis I had just started in modeling. She is the first person who gave me a step into modeling. This is my first book cover, my first time as someone’s muse. (That he knows of…) When the weekend of the photo shoot (for the cover of Strong Enough) arrived it was like, I guess, I made it. Whenever either of us needs something we’re a phone call away. It really means a lot to me. ~ Mike

         Their relationship has grown from Alexis seeing a picture online & approaching Mike about using his picture on her fan page into a friendship & business partnership. They have a mutual respect for each other that is easy to see. Each of their strengths compliments the others.  They bring different talents & skills to their ventures, which entail more than the book. Neither lets the other downplay their intelligence or accomplishments. They like the opportunity to call the other one out, especially Alexis.

We hope you enjoyed getting to know Alexis. Come back on Sunday March 31st for the cover reveal of Strong Enough & Part Two of the interview, Getting to Know Mike Crowson. You’re going to love it!

Review ===> Haven from the Storm By Sarah Dosher

Haven from the Storm (Storms of Life #1)


Most were asleep in their beds the night Lily Grace’s entire world was ripped apart, leaving only darkness and torment in its place. The only remaining person she depended on abandoned her without a second thought…or so that’s what Lily has believed for the past four years.

Dean Haven has returned for one reason—to win Lily’s love again. He’s already broken her heart because of the demons that haunt him. Can his desire for Lily keep him from succumbing to those demons again?

Dean has no idea what awaits him when he tries to fight his way back into Lily’s life. Everything he remembers has changed, including Lily.
Is love enough when you’re forced to weather the storms life has blown your way?

My Review:

Haven from the Storm is to be released March 30th. 

I received Haven from the Storm by Sarah Dosher, compliments from the author for my honest review.

I was instantly hooked to this book, right from the Prologue. Author Sarah Dosher does such a wonderful job with the details that I was completely engaged in this book and was not able to put it down.

Lily has experienced more heartache and loss than anyone in her town is known to. Her mother and brother died. Her father is an abusive and resentful alcoholic. The only person she’s ever given her heart to, bailed when she needed him the most. Despite all that, she has proven to be such a strong, independent person, practically raising herself since the age of 14.

Dean’s first instinct when situations get tough is to run, run away far and fast. With both parents gone, he only has the support of his grandmother who raised him. Going off to college, he tries to escape his past and make a future for himself.  He finally realizes that running away is only a short term escape, not a solution, and most of all he cannot run away from his past forever. He is slowly facing his demons, but it’s proving that it may be too late.

Dean’s grandmother Violet tries to play matchmaker and tries to get them back together again. Can Dean and Lily salvage whatever relationship they had four years ago? Lily’s father has a different idea. He has some kind of vendetta against Dean and his family, that he threatens Dean and Lily’s future. Will they be able to stay away from each other or will the strong connection they have keep them together? Will love prevail in this situation? You will not only fall in love with Dean and Lily, you will practically fall in love with Grandma Violet. She seems to be the grandmother everyone wants around. Adley and Derek, Lily and Dean’s friends, bring lots of humor to the book and they also show the true meaning of friendship.

My emotions ran wild straight from the beginning. I’m not going to lie; you are definitely in for some big heartbreaking moments, which will leave you feeling very frustrated at times, maybe even angry. Don’t get me wrong, there are many happy and satisfying parts in the book; just be prepared for the rollercoaster of emotions! The way Sarah wrote the book, I felt like I was there living everything that Lily went through. I was feeling every feeling and emotion poured into the book, and I actually felt like I was a part of Lily. I really do look forward to reading more books from Sarah. ~~ Jennelyn


Now that Lucas has declared his love for her, Sienna is sure the drama between them is over.
She’s not afraid of Lucas’s ex-wife or whatever secret the other woman is holding over him. For two blissful days—the remainder of Sienna’s contract with Lucas—they hole up in a vacation house in the mountains of Tennessee, consuming each other. At the end of their stay, Lucas comes to Sienna with a proposition: his band, Your Toxic Sequel, is going on tour with Wicked Lambs, and he wants her with him the entire time. Sienna agrees to work wardrobe and be his official girl.   Life on the road is different from anything Sienna has ever known. Not only does she have to deal with Lucas’s band members, but she’s also forced to be around Cilla, the lead singer of Wicked Lambs, who’s clearly in love with Lucas. Despite horny band mates and a persistent gorgeous rock goddess determined to sink her claws into Lucas, Sienna stays by his side.  Then the threats start.  Lucas’s ex-wife Sam isn’t happy that he’s moved on, and Sam begins harassing Sienna—everything from threatening emails to phone calls and even fake accounts on Your Toxic Sequel message boards slamming her and spreading vicious rumors. Sienna keeps this from Lucas since she knows how bad Sam is for his music.  It’s not until Sienna is attacked by a crazed YTS fan hired by Sam, and Sam starts to aim her verbal threats at Sienna’s grandmother, that Lucas finally reveals his secret. And it’s a big one...

San Francisco Indie Author Signing!!!!

This June 15th, will you be attending the San Francisco Indie Author signing??? 

Take a look at the AMAZING Authors who will be in attendance at this event! 

Click the link below:



He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy.

So, that was Matt.  Who Julie Seagle likes. A lot.  But there is also Finn.  Who she flat out loves.

Complicated? Awkward?  Completely.

But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother's? This was all supposed to be temporary.  Julie wasn't supposed to be important to the Watkins family, or to fall in love with one of the brothers.  Especially the one she's never quite met. But what does that really matter?  Finn gets her, like no one ever has before. They have connection.But here's the thing about love, in all its twisty, bumpy permutations—it always throws you a few curves.  And no one ever escapes unscathed.

New York Times best-selling author Jessica Park mines the territory of love’s growing pains with wit, sharp insights, and a discernible heat and heartbeat. Her previous novels include Relatively Famous, and she authored the e-shorts What the Kid Says (Parts 1 and 2) and Facebooking Rick Springfield.

The author of Flat-Out Love has donated this book to the Worldreader program




There's a new cocky bad-boy in the Black Falcon world this round.  Meet Donovan (inspiration for him Matt Walst):


“Can I buy you a drink?” A man’s voice asks to my right.
My head snaps in his direction and my eyes land on an incredibly handsome man. Blonde shaggy hair drifts over his brow and he shoves it back as he grins at me. His blue eyes drink me in slowly as he waits for my answer.

I return his smile with a polite one of my own. “Thank you, but I’m with someone.”
He learns in closer and completely blows off my refusal. “I’m Donovan. You might’ve heard of me?” He pauses for a brief second, but when I give him a blank stare he continues, “I’m the guitarist for Embrace the Darkness.”

I nod. “I’ve heard of you. You’re the opening act for Black Falcon, right?”

Donovan smirks. “Not for long. They’ll be opening for us soon enough.”

He turns, practically pushing his chest against my arm and I take a step away. “Pretty sure of yourself, aren’t you?”

He shrugs. “Why not? I’m great at what I do and my band kicks ass. What’s so wrong in taking pride in something you know you’re good at?” Suddenly I feel his hand on my ass. “Why don’t you do your self a favor and come upstairs with me?”


Chase Grayson has never been interested in having a relationship that lasted longer than it took for him and the girl to get dressed again.  But then he stumbled into a gray-eyed girl whose innocence poured off her, and everything changed.  From the minute Harper opened her mouth to let him know just how much he disgusted her, he was hooked.  

But a princess deserves a prince charming that can make her dreams come true.  Not a guy that can turn her life into a nightmare.  

All good intentions go out the window when she starts to fall for the guy he’s come to view as a brother.  He’d wanted to protect her by keeping her away, but he can’t stand to see her with anyone else and he’ll do anything to make her his.  But when it comes down to Harper choosing between the two, will Chase have the strength to step back from the girl that has become his whole world if it means she’s happy? 

Lines will be crossed.  Friendships will be put to the test.  And hearts will be shattered.

Music of the Heart
by Katie Ashley 
For Abby Renard, the plan was supposed to be simple—join her brothers’ band on the last leg of their summer tour and decide if she’s finally ready for the limelight by becoming its fourth member. Of course, she never imagined stumbling onto the wrong tour bus at Rock Nation would accidentally land her in the bed of Jake Slater, the notorious womanizing lead singer of Runaway Train. When he mistakes her for one of his groupie’s, Abby quickly lets him know she sure as hell isn't in his bed on purpose.

Jake Slater never imagined the angel who fell into his bed would resist his charms by promptly kneeing him in the balls. Of course, the fact she seems like a prissy choir girl makes her anything but his type. So he is more than surprised when after betting Abby she wouldn’t last a week on their tour bus, she is more than willing to prove him wrong. But as Jake’s personal life begins to implode around him, he finds an unlikely ally in Abby. He’s never met a woman he can talk to, joke with, or most importantly make music with.

As the week starts comes to a close, neither Abby nor Jake is ready to let go. Can a sweetheart Country songstress and a bad boy of Rock N Roll actually have a future together?


Katie Ashley is the New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon Best-Selling author of The Proposition. She lives outside of Atlanta, Georgia with her two very spoiled dogs and one outnumbered cat. She has a slight obsession with Pinterest, The Golden Girls, Harry Potter, Shakespeare, Supernatural, Designing Women, and Scooby-Doo.

COVER REVEAL - "UNCHARTED" by Tracey Garvis Graves

This is the companion novella to ON THE ISLAND!! ♥ WANT!!! ♥

When twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all.

Calia Reed wasn't part of Owen's plans. The beautiful British girl -- on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James -- made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn't know anything about the life he left behind.

But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago .

And when Owen shows up at Anna and T.J.'s door with an incredible story to tell, everyone involved will learn just how much their lives are intertwined.

Uncharted includes an early look at Covet, coming September 17, 2013.
