QUESTION FRIDAY! 29/06/2018 'Graffiti'

This week's question is;

Q) Do you write in your books? Under line anything? Use highlighter?  Dog-ear pages?

A) I definitely don't write in my books, or high highlighter or anything like that.  I use the highlighter on the kindle, but even then very rarely.
I've had to write in books in the past when I was studying, but that was different as they were text books.

Waiting On Wednesday 'Moonlight Seduction'

Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week the book I'm waiting to be released is Moonlight Seduction by Jennifer L. Armentrout, the second book in her de Vincent series.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and have been dying for the second book to come on.
Release date 26th June 2018.
The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel...

Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up... and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.

Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman... one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

This week's question is;

Q) What is the best and worst book to movie adaptations you've seen?

A) I always look forward to book to movie adaptations with excited and trepidation in equal measure.

Some of my favourite book to movie adaptations are;
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green- I thought it was a great one.  It kept all the most important parts of the book.  It was both funny and heartbreaking, and the characters were so well cast.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes- one of my all time favourite books, and I felt it was transferred to the screen really well.  Again the casting was fantastic.  I laughed and I cried at the movie, just like I did with the book.  There were some scenes from the book that I wished had been in there, but overall I didn't feel too cut up about it.

The Martian by Andy Weir- I didn't love or hate the book.  I enjoyed it but found the scientific descriptions very heavy going, whereas in the movie, I found it much easier to take in.  This is one instance where I actually preferred the movie over the book which is a rare occurrence indeed.

As for the worst adaptations, Ella Enchanted by Gail Caron Levine is one.  I love the book so much, and the movie is...different.  I don't hate the movie but it definitely stays from the book.  It's more of a comedy movie, and I loved it when I was younger, but as I've got older, I prefer the book over the movie.

Crux Untamed (Hades Hangmen #6) by Tillie Cole


A broken woman. 
A damaged man. 
A free spirit intent on saving them both.

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to. 
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose. 
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it. 
Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts. 
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive. 
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.

Dark Contemporary MFM Romance. Contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. Over 18’s only.

I'm a massive Tillie Cole fan, an absolutely adore the Hades Hangmen series. It is hands down one of my all time favourite series- I enjoy Tillie's other books, but the Hades Hangmen is my stand out favourite.
Normally when a new Hangmen books is released I stop everything and start reading it the day it came out.  With this one...I didn't.  It came out February and I didn't pick it up until the May.  I think I had reservation because it's a MFM romance, and I don't have much experience reading them, and the ones I have read are not favourites of mine.  I just think it put me off a bit.  And what I love about the Hades Hangmen men are that they are alphas and very protective and possessive of their 'Old Lady's' so I couldn't get my head around two men and one woman.  But when I finally picked it up, I just fell into the story like I have with every other Hades Hangmen book.  I loved both Hush and Cowboy- they were very different but each one you kind of fell in love with.
Hush is a very quiet reserved kind of guy.  He's been through some traumatic stuff, and feels he doesn't deserve anyone, and that he doesn't belong anywhere because he's not all white not all black.
Cowboy comes across as very fun loving and charming.  Flirty and funny, but he's also very loyal.
Sia, we met her in Hearts Recaptured as she's the VP's sister, and we knew she'd been through something horrendous but not the full story.  And it was truly horrendous.  She now lives a low profile life on a secluded ranch to escape her past.  I did like as as she stood up for herself against her brother when he tries to strong arm her.
I really loved this book, as I have done with each Hades Hangmen novel and regret not picking it up sooner.
Finally I've read a MFM romance novel that I think actually works.
5/5 stars.

This week's question is;

Q) Do your books go everywhere with you?

A) I nearly always have a book with me.  I use a lot of public transport so use that time to read.  I've either got my physical book with me, or my Kindle Paperwhite.

COVER REVEAL: Stoking Her Fire by Mila Crawford

I’d always loved her even if she never knew.

Growing up as Avery’s friend was the hardest part of it all, especially when all I wanted to do was claim her as mine. But I was that awkward, geeky kid with the black-rimmed glasses and was a social outcast.

Time and distance had separated us but I never forgot about her. My love for Avery never lessened. It only grew.

Now back in town, working as a firefighter. I doubt she’ll recognize me. I’m big, strong, and confident, so different than what I was all those years ago. Seeing her again after so long has me realizing too much time has passed. I know what has to be done.

I need to let Avery know she’s mine and that nothing and no one would stop me from claiming her.

Warning: This is a friends-to-lovers, double virgin safe romance that also has that spark of filth thrown in. Yes, you read that right … double virgins. No need to wear protection for this one because these two know exactly what they want and that’s each other.

Waiting On Wednesday 'A Wish For Us'

Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.
This week the book that I'm waiting to be released is A Wish For Us by Tillie Cole.  I absolutely love Tillie Cole.  She's one of my auto-buy authors.  I've loved everything of hers that I've read, and this is being 'compared' to her YA novel A Thousand Boy Kisses, which was so beautiful.  I loved it so much, so I'm really looking forward to another stand alone YA novel from her.
Released 1th June 2018.
39093527From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: For The King by Jenika Snow

Willow. Flower shop owner and commoner.

I was her king, a ruthless and brutal ruler who didn’t back down.
And from the moment I saw her I knew she was mine. I had to have her, not just in my bed but also by my side. As my queen.

So I had her taken from her home and made a deal with her. I’d make sure her ailing mother was taken care of and pay off her debts if she agreed to one thing.

Be my wife and carry my heir.

What I wanted I got, and the only thing that I wanted more than all the riches and jewels in the world was her. Willow.

Warning: Get your fancy clothes on—or off depending on how you roll—and get ready to dive into one hell of a royal love story. It’s got everything that presses your book buttons: a safe read that’s swoony, filthy, and delivers a HEA. It’s true what they say about this king ... he does always get what he wants.

I inhaled her panties again, that sweet scent of her pussy making my cock jerk in response. I was going to tear up her pretty virgin cunt, make it mine. She’d take all of my cock as I filled her womb with my seed, putting my heir deep inside of her, making sure she was linked to me forever.
Placing my hand between her thighs again—right over her now bared pussy—I added pressure. “Your cunt tells me you like what I’m doing, that even if you’re trying to be strong you know that I’m the only one who can give you what you need,” I growled out low. “You’re fucking soaked and it’s all because of me.”
I held up my hand, my fingers glistening from her wetness. “Open for me, Willow.” She widened her eyes but did as I said. I slipped my fingers into her mouth, made her taste herself.
“Lick them clean.”
She ran her tongue along the digits, sucking the cream off of them, and couldn’t help but make a small noise in the back of her throat.
“You like it, don’t you?” I said low, wanting to hear her say the words. I removed them from her mouth, took a half a step back, and dropped to my haunches in front of her, her pussy on display, my face right there, seeing it all.
“Fuck, I like that your cunt is mine now, that no one will ever fucking taste you, know how tight you are, how wet and pink you are when you’re turned on.”
I blew a warm breath on her pussy. I lifted my hands and framed her cunt, and pulled her lips apart with my thumbs. My groan was deep and filled with an arousal that no doubt matched hers.
“Spread your legs for me, Willow. I’m going to lick and suck at this little pussy until you come all over my face.”
She did as I ordered and I gripped the back of her knee and brought it over my shoulder, having her pussy spread obscenely wide. And then I had my mouth on her cleft, my tongue parting her folds as I ate her out almost violently.
I had one hand back on her ass, keeping her pressed to my mouth as I did exactly what I wanted with her. Squeezing the fleshy mound, I groaned against her soaked pussy at the same time I dipped my tongue into her body. Fucking her with my tongue and lips, I gently scraped my teeth along her flesh.
I lifted the hand that I had on the back of her knee and moved it between her thighs. As soon as my thumb touched her clit she came for me.
“That’s it,” I said against her swollen flesh as I continued to eat her out.
A low cry left her and she speared her hands in my hair and ground her pussy into my face.
“Fuck,” I groaned.
I gave her pussy one last long lick, like I was sucking on a lollipop, making sure I got all of her flavor, and then I stood. I grabbed her ass again and pulled her forward, letting her feel the hard length of my erection pressed into her belly.

Jenika Snow, a USA Today bestselling author, lives in the northeast with her husband and their children.
She prefers gloomy days, eats the topping off of her pizza first, and prefers to wear socks year round.

This week's question is;

Q) What was your favourite book from your childhood?

A) I don't really remember a lot of specific books from my young childhood.  I remember my mum and dad used to read to me and I loved it.  Stories from fairytale books, The Wind In The Willows etc.
I remember in Primary School we used to take a weekly walk to the local library and every single time I would pick up The Maiden on the Moor by Marilyn Singer.  I don't know why because it was such a morbid, dark fairytale type book.  I think it must have been the beautiful illustrations.
From later childhood I would have to say Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine.  Such an inventive Cinderella retelling.  I was hooked on it from the moment I picked it up.  I remember staying up way past when I should have been in bed to finish it, and I've since reread it at least 5 times.
