A Woman Gone Mad Blog tour!




BLURB: 
Forget everything you know about fairytales. There comes a point in a woman's life when she realizes not everyone gets a happy ending. 

And no one knows this better than Lillian Shaw.

The safety of a small southern upbringing and a happy normal family couldn't keep life from chipping away at her.

And nothing leaves its mark like the bite of a broken heart.

Blow after blow, Lillian tries to stay optimistic, but when faced with a choice that could destroy her future, she gives in to the temptation.

When your first true love comes crashing into your happily ever after, you're supposed to walk away. Not fall back in love.

But saying no to Leo was something Lillian could never do... 

Once lines are crossed is there any going back? 

Or is the risk that Lillian Shaw takes going to leave her broken again... 

And this time be enough to make her A Woman Gone Mad? 

***Warning: This is not a shy and tender fairytale love story. It's a raw, tragic, and gritty story inspired by true events. This book is not for the faint of heart, it contains graphic language, sex, violence, and drug use. MATURE Audiences Only. Not intended for young adult readers.***
 



 MY REVIEW:
CUT MY HEART INTO PIECES!
I'll admit it, I wasn't sure what to think when I first started reading. It wasn't a drag me in to the story... AT FIRST, BUT!

Each chapter drew me in further until I was so absorbed that I couldn't stop. No. Not until My heart was cut out and fed back to me. I'll admit it. I broke the ef down and cried. Washed the makeup off because I could no longer dab the tears away. It was the realism, knowing the events that made me cry were real and true. And then to have to deal with another blow, and another? I wanted to take Lil' under my wings and find the beautiful HEA she deserves.

There are some crazy times, some crazy teen moments I could totally relate to. Midlife changes I could relate to and pain I could relate to, but on some levels, I'm not sure if I could deal with some of the most tragic moments. I certainly was crushed with the pain of knowing and dealing with what Lil' had to deal with. Life is not fair. Not in the least. Life can be cruel, it can bring us to the lowest depths and to a point we feel we cannot come back and give up, but it's all of those things that can make us a stronger person.

This isn't a story where you can complain (though people will find a way to complain about anything that is nothing) about the characters, not when it's based on a true story. And not when you run with the heroine and know her pain, feel her pain right with her. It's the happy moments that took away a little of the heartache I felt and I really want more of Lillian's future.

I absolutely LOVED this story. LOVED it. It drew every emotion out of me and I love that. This is a story for those who can take a beating, who can handle the gritty and the emotional pitfalls. It's not a story for the weak, but more for those who can handle descriptive writing and more than a PG sex scene.

LOVED A Woman Gone Mad

Mellifica blog tour!

BLURB: 
No one understands the obsession Melissa Quinn has with Arien Hart. He’s different—misunderstood. The more her friends warn her of Arien, the more Melissa refuses to listen. Enchanted by Arien’s charisma, she plunges into an impassioned relationship, leaving her boyfriend, Sandy Bavetta behind. Melissa is blind to Arien’s faults, so Sandy has no choice but to leave it to fate. When Arien's love destroys Melissa, Sandy fights for his girl before the consequences are devastating. 


MY REVIEW: 
Mellifica is an empowering, emotional journey sure to tug at your heartstrings. Choices... will it be SANDY or ARIEN

We all experience the heartache of a first love. But what happens when
it changes your entire person? When promises are made and taken to the 
extreme, sometimes life throws a curveball, or in this case, wrecking ball, 
and changes everything. Mellifica is a story of Melissa's first love, a love 
gone terribly wrong. She's a normal sixteen-year-old who has plenty of 
friends, goes to church, and has just landed Sandy,the sweetheart she's 
had her heart set on. Life is good, Melissa is happy with 
 SANDY

Until... ARIEN

Chad, Melissa's cousin, introduces her to his new buddy, Arien. Something 
about the way he looks at her and speaks to her draws Melissa closer to him. 
Eventually, she gives up on her current relationship with Sandy, partly because 
he breaks her trust, but the bigger reason is her sudden attraction to Arien. 

Arien becomes Melissa's life, her future, her everything. He speaks beautiful 
thoughts, promises to love and take care of her forever, but never does she 
expect the gut wrenching experience she's headed toward. When the death of 
one of Arien's favorite teacher's shocks Arien and the high school students, 
Melissa vows to take care of Arien in order to help him deal with the loss. What 
she doesn't expect is his sudden need to help someone else, and the many nights 
he doesn't contact her. She doesn't expect her whole world to come crashing down, 
but it does. On top of suffering all of life's cruel blows, Melissa is also left with no 
friends, an overbearing mother who seems to have no understanding of the 
devastation her daughter is suffering. 

TURMOIL. DEVASTATION. GUT WRENCHING PAIN. 


Will she regain control of her life and move past the evil blows life has dealt her?
Will it ever end?

OMG! Y'all need to read this one! So freaking good!

FIGHTING TO FORGIVE BOOK TOUR!






Fighting to Forgive

by JB Salsbury


What do you do when everything you avoid, turns out to be exactly what you need?


Easy and predictable, just the way he likes it, Blake Daniels flies through life the way he burns through women: on his terms, no regrets.

With his fighting career in full swing, he’s on the threshold of title contention. But when his training is compromised by injury, the stakes grow impossibly higher. The rage that fuels his punches also chips away at his focus, and he risks losing everything he cares about.

He won’t let that happen. 


Not again.

Layla’s through with men. After a marriage that never should’ve happened, she hopes to reclaim the pieces of the woman she lost years ago.

Emotional abuse has left her insecure and terrified. A master at faking what she’s not feeling, she masks her self-doubt in false confidence.

She’ll never let another man hurt her. 

Not again.

Chased by shadows of the past, Blake and Layla know what they don’t want, but their hearts have a different plan. As a web of lies and betrayal threatens to destroy them, they’re forced to make a choice.

Is love enough to heal even the deepest wounds?


MY REVIEW:
✫✫✫✫✫
 
O.M mother freaking Blake-Snake and all naughty things! Forget my panties, Blake's sooo swooony and... Ok, so most know I was all Jonah, Jonah, Jonah previously, but now? Oh, Blake, you've stole my heart on so many levels. He's everything I never thought he was, he never thought he was. But! He had me so fracking peeved at one point and I wanted to hall Layla away. Run girl, run! But then that damn Snake strikes, fills you with his special brand of Blake poison, infiltrates every single cell within you, and... and! He's got you wrapped/filled/and tucked so far into him that you beg him to never let go, and totally FORGIVE him!

So lets talk about this sweet duo, Layla and Axel. I hearted them both from the very start. Oh what Layla went through with that F*ckstick ex! But there's nothing better than a Snake, the Blake kind, to wrap himself around you and do deliciously naughty things to you! Blake's every bit of a bad boy we knew he was, and the protector and lover we never thought he'd be. Ohhhh but he has his moments. One. Certain. Moment! I wanted to grind my hooker heel into his balls! Oh wait, I don't wear heels LOL. But I wanted to at that One. Certain. Moment.

Like Jonah and Raven, Blake and Layla have a seriously screwed up past, but it's easy to love them, root for them, even through ALL of their flawed beauty.

To wrap this up without spoilers, all I can say is...

HOLY mother of PYTHONS! Jump into Blake-the-Snake's skin and let him devour you!
Move over Remy and Hello, Blake!
