Blurb:

He’s football’s poster boy with one thing on his mind. Well, perhaps two things, but Shay Cunningham’s outstanding football career and contract negotiations take precedent over everything else. Even women. Living life to the extreme, Shay’s past indiscretions continue to fuel his lifestyle. And that’s just how he likes it.

Whitney Scott is broke, anxious and afraid. After an unexpected break up with her newborn baby’s father, her life is a mess. Down on her luck, she’s working hard to solidify her-and her baby’s-future. One uncertain step at a time.

When an emergency thrusts Shay and Whitney together will one heavy dose of uncertainty push them apart? Or will they be willing to make a Hail Mary pass with their hearts-trusting that the other one will catch it?

Shay Cunningham is going to break your heart!

Hail Mary is a charming story about Shay Cunningham, an NFL player and Whitney Scott, a girl who might be classy and southern but knows how to get down and dirty when need be.  I absolutely loved this story and these two characters.  Shay has a sensitive side and readers are going to fall in love with him.

We get to see them navigate their unconventional romance and rocky start.  Shay is a womanizing, popular football star who really has no time for much else.  Whitney is a single mom who’s just been dumped by her fiancé.  Together, they face a lot of challenges. I loved the way the characters and world were presented  I didn’t find myself skimming pages and really connected with all the characters.  I can’t wait to read more about the Mavericks!

About the Author:

Julianna Marley is fairly certain that she was born on the wrong side of the Mason-Dixon line. She’s in constant search of warmth, sunshine and water. When not writing about all the places she yearns to be, she can be found enjoying obnoxious amounts of coffee and getting bossed around by a four year-old. Julianna loves romance, humor and football.

Review: Born Sinner by S.L. Jennings

Born Sinner AMAZON

BLURB:

Twenty-two years ago, I was cut from a cold, sodden womb, and cradled in the filth and poverty of Chicago’s concrete arms. Statistically, I wasn’t supposed to survive these streets past the age of eighteen.

Fate had a different plan.

I was bred for one purpose and one purpose only: to unleash death and destruction on my world.

My thoughts are power.

My words are weapons.

Evil created me then grace tried to save me. But first… they tried to kill me.
They call themselves the Se7en. They are sin and salvation, and everything we’ve feared from the beginning of time. And their leader is the deadliest of them all.

He doesn’t lose.

He doesn’t compromise.

And most importantly, he doesn’t distract himself with mortal weakness.

Not until me.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he told me when he took me as his prisoner.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he’s been trying to tell himself ever since he took me into his arms.

5 Star Review

This book, man.  It’s difficult to give you an accurate review of the awesomeness that is Born Sinner without giving too much away, but I’m going to try.

First off, we’re thrust (heh) right into the action.  Our main character and boss bitch, Eden, gets herself into a heap of trouble and winds up falling in with a group of very interesting characters.  Eden has lived a difficult life which has included her insane mother trying to kill her while she was still in her womb and then attempting to finish the job a few years later.  Eden’s mom was convinced that Eden was pure evil, a product of an unholy union between Eden’s Mom and…wait for it…the devil.  Yep, Lucifer himself.

image2

Obviously, this has caused Eden to walk through life tormented that her mother hated her so much.  It has made her consider her life worthless.  There’s also the tiny issue that Eden has the ability to make people do…bad things.  So when Eden finds herself with a scary group of people, the truth is slowly revealed and that truth reveals that maybe Eden’s Mama wasn’t quite so crazy (I mean, she totally was, but maybe not full-on crazy. Like, half-crazy).  Eden winds up being tossed into a world that includes angel, demons, witches, and warlocks.  Her newfound friends are tasked with trying to discover just how powerful Eden is and prevent her from turning to her true nature, which is pure evil.

But while Eden is being tormented by the newly revealed truth and the nightmares that have plagued her for years, she’s got a fierce hero in her corner. Someone who wants to show her that she can deny her urges, make different choices, and become someone better.  Someone good.  Someone who can find redemption.  L – our hero – is the leader of the group that protects Eden.  He’s got his own unique set of issues and while he was once tasked with killing people like Eden, L sees something different in this girl.  He no longer wants to destroy her, he wants to protect her, he wants to help her change, he just wants her.  In fact, he wants her so much that L is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for Eden.

At its core, Born Sinner is a story of good versus evil.  A story of family.  And a story of sacrifice.  The world building was amazing, the pacing was on-point, and if she hadn’t ended it on a cliffhanger the size of the Grand Canyon, I might’ve sent SL Jennings flowers.  But I won’t, because she deserves to be punished 🙂 The second book of the Born Sinners series is HIGHLY ANTICIPATED by this reviewer.

Synopsis: Hands On is the first of a three-part erotic series from New York Times and USA best-selling author Cathryn Fox.

When hot as hell Danielle Lang showed up and asked me to teach her about sex, I thought I was hallucinating. Turns out the beautiful psychologist needed an extra bit of schooling in all things sexual so she could teach a class.
I’m always up for helping a friend. I mean, it’s the least I can do. What I wasn’t expecting is for her to turn the tables and teach me a few things. Only this short-term promise of two weeks in her bed is going by a little too quickly. Not that I’m thinking forever or anything.

I’ve got a football career to get back to. And she doesn’t want to be a part of my world. There’s no way we can be together—so I’m going to make sure I enjoy every sexy second….

This is the first of a three-part series full of mind-blowing sex, featuring a dirty-mouthed football player who knows the score and an inexperienced therapist who needs to learn it. HANDS ON is sure to leave readers begging for more. The next installment, Body Contact, will be published August 2016.

4 Star Review

Hands On is the start to the sensuous and fun three-part serial by Cathryn Fox.  While it’s steamy and panty-melting, it’s also well written, well paced, and you will fall in love with the characters.

Danielle is in a pickle of a situation.  She only has two weeks to prepare to successfully teach a sex therapy course…and she doesn’t have that much, ahem, experience.  Enter Jack, our sexy hero who you’re going to swoon over.  Jack and Danielle have history together and Danielle sees him as the perfect solution to her problem.  As you can probably guess, things don’t go quite as planned.  And while Jack is aware that Danielle is inexperienced, he has no idea that he’ll actually be her first.  So  when he agrees to help her it comes with the caveat that he’ll be in charge of the lessons…and that’s a fine damn idea.

While I normally try to stay away from serials, this one has tons of potential and I can’t wait to see how this story plays out.  There is a ton of room for both characters to grow and develop as the story progresses.  I can’t wait until the next installment, coming later this month!

I received an ARC via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

He was everything she wasn’t looking for …

Finding a naked rock star in my bed was not how I saw my new life starting. Especially when that rock star is Evan Wyld, guitarist of the hottest band on the planet, Dirty Texas.

He looks dirty as sin with colorful tattoos, muscles and piercings in all the right places. Summer is about to heat up as I join Dirty Texas on their European tour.

She was everything he wasn’t ready for…

Sienna Hayes is off limits, but ever since the blonde bombshell accidentally climbed into my bed, I’ve been fantasizing about the ways I could help her get over her ex.

She has baggage, but I’m known for being a good time. Maybe I can be her rebound, help put her back together again.

One little taste can’t hurt; can it?
