Release Blitz: MURDER AT BROADCAST PARK by BIll Evans


Thriller / Mystery
eBook Published: October 17, 2017
Publisher: Koehler Books October 2017

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Before this current age of broadcasting acquisitions and mergers, local TV stations were owned by the broadcasters, not investment firms. They lived to tell the stories of their communities. In Murder at Broadcast Park, the CBS station located in the rich resort town of Santa Barbara becomes it’s own story. “We never want to be our own news,” was the mandate from Barry Burke, the station’s news director. Except in this case, people are dying. With three murders, more affairs, but no suspects, investigators peer behind the scenes of the local news. Pull the veil off to find twists, turns, and secrets behind the scenes of this resort TV station and its cast of TV professionals. Nothing is off limits.


Praise for Murder at Broadcast Park:

"Add Murder At Broadcast Park to your must read book list - immediately!" --John Hannon, President, Jim Doyle & Associates, author of the Amazon best-selling book series, Engaged Management

"Lights..camera..Homicide ..Broadcasting Icon Bill Evans has crafted a tantilizing tale.. a real sex, lies and videotape odyssey into a dark side of the TV news business Sordid..salacious..from beginning to end." --Phil Blauer, News Anchor, FOX 5, San Diego

"Murder, sex scandals and cover-ups. It sounds like a great news day until you find out: you are the news!" --Dana Beards, Political Reporter, Capitol Television News Service

"A serious page-turner for serious 'who done it' fans. Don't read the first page of Murder at Broadcast Park unless you plan to race through every page until the end. Vivid and memorable characters. A twisty plot that keeps you guessing. And all of it in laid back Santa Barbara where murders are not the norm. Right? In his sojourn novel Bill Evans proves himself to be a master story teller. I can't wait for his next one. Hint. Hint." --David Welch, Talk Show Host, WRNR

"I was hooked on the first page and then could not put this book down. Murder at Broadcast House captured me with real characters and a great story. A perfect escape book until I realized how realistic it really was." --Jim Doyle, Founder, Jim Doyle & Associates

"Bill Evans has created a fabulous look "inside a working Newsroom" while at the same time, crafting a "page turning" thriller that will have you glued to every scene. As someone who spent 54 years in Newsrooms from New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas, to Reno, Idaho Falls, and Bozeman, I LOVED IT!" --Ted Dawson, Former Sportscaster KABC-Los Angeles

Book Review: HOW I MAGICALLY MESSED UP MY LIFE IN FOUR FREAKIN DAYS by Megan O'Russell

32231955

Title: How I Magically Messed Up My Life In Four Freakin' Days
Author: Megan O'Russell
Category/genre: Young Adult Fantasy
My Star Rating: 4/5
 
Goodreads Blurb:

Ever wanted to grow a five-story tall flower in central park? How about fight a deadly battle under the subway tunnels of Manhattan?

Don't worry. I never wanted to either. But if you're ever being chased by ladies made of mist and you have to save the girl with the sparkly eyes you've never had the guts to say actual words to, there's an app for that.

I found a magic cell phone, opened an app I shouldn't have, burned down the set shop for my high school's theatre, and it was all downhill from there. A drag queen seer who lives under a bridge is my only hope for keeping my mom alive, and I think the cops might be after me for destroying my dad's penthouse.

But it gets better! Now I'm stuck being the sidekick to the guy who got me into this mess in the first place. It'll be a miracle if I survive until Monday.


My Review: 

This was such a fun, relevant book for all the socially awkward kids out there! I was one of them back *mumbles* years ago, so I get the need to believe that one day you're going to wake up and be the star of your own story.  The hero,  Bryant Adams, gets that chance when he finds a magical cell phone that only works for magical special folk and -to his surprise- he is one! I loved how the girl he's had had is eye on forever just happens to get pulled into the mess so she gets a chance to see just how special he really is... really, every weird-teen's fantasy, isn't it?  The style of story-telling is unique and entertaining.  Very comical and sarcastic, which for a young adult book is perfect. I do feel, however, that this would've been better with slightly younger characters. It read a little borderline middle school/high school to me instead of 17ish, where the heroine should be a tad more mature.

Book Review: TATTOOED LOVE by Simone Elise


Tattooed Love


Title: Tattooed Love

Author: Simone Elise

Category/Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Star Rating: 4/5


Goodreads Blurb:

When your heart rules your mind, you don’t get to choose who you love. But what if that love could lead to your own destruction?
Amber is a rebellious high school senior and the only girl in a family of outlaw bikers. Her four brothers left when she was young to keep her away from their style of life, but despite their efforts, she’s wrapped up in criminal activities and her life is rapidly spiraling out of control.

With her life finally going up in flames, adding fuel to that fire is smoldering and infamous biker Jax. As she begins to fall for her dangerous love and throw caution to the wind, Amber might not be able to turn back from the risky path she’s chosen...

Being together might be dangerous, but, after all, outlaws are meant to break the rules. 




My Review: 

Ok, so this was my first biker read, and I'm not one for contemporary romances, but I was in the mood for something outside of the ordinary so I thought I would give this one a go... and I actually really liked it!  There was a ton of action, excitement abound, and the chemistry between Jax and Amber was crazy electric, and even though I usually go for the beta guys for my book boyfriends, Jax wasn't too over the top alpha for my taste. Or, maybe it was the way Amber held her own against him that made up for it.  She was a straight up badass and totally had me in her corner right up until the end when she caved to his "rules" so easy (especially considering she supposedly hated him at this point).  It felt way out of character to me, but that was a minor issue.  The only big negative for me was the sex scenes.  I love steamy, don't get me wrong, but these felt... awkward.  I mean, full on conversations in the middle of throwing down?  Mmmm, never happened to me, personally, and it really killed the mood in my opinion.

Overall, great book!

Publisher: Asset Creative House

The Hunger Games meets Romeo and Juliet in a stunning debut about a forbidden romance between a young activist and a government employee for a corrupt bureau that controls the population by deciding who lives and who dies.

Roman Irvine is a disgruntled IT Technician for the Divinity Bureau, a government agency that uses random selection to decide who lives and who dies. In a world where overpopulation has lead to pollution, a crippled economy, and a world in crisis, he’s accepted the bureau’s activities as a necessity… until he meets April McIntyre.
April has every reason to be suspicious of Roman. He works for the Divinity Bureau, which sent her father to an early grave. But he’s also sweet and loyal, and unbeknownst to her, he saved her life. As Roman and April fall deeper in love, the deeper they’re thrust into the politics of deciding who lives and who dies. Someone wants April dead. And the bureau’s process of random selection may not be so random after all…


Tessa Clare is the author of The Divinity Bureau. When she’s not writing, she’s an entrepreneur, an activist, a speaker, and the Managing Director of Asset Creative House. Throughout her early career, she was a concession stand attendant, a busgirl, a barista, a player’s club representative for a casino, and an administrative assistant. She also spent years working as a manager for Vacasa, whose business model and revolutionary marketing strategies would later inspire the groundwork for Asset Creative House. The Divinity Bureau is Tessa’s debut novel about a forbidden love between a young activist and a government employee working for a corrupt bureau, set in a dystopian world.

Book Blitz: DIRTY DEALINGS by AJ Adams

  Title: Dirty Dealings
Series: Zeta Cartel #3
By: AJ Adams
Publication Date: June 28, 2016
Genre: Dark Suspenseful Romance
#dirtydealingsblitz
I could’ve fucking strangled her. She knew it too because she stepped away quickly. “Touch me and I’ll have you!” she snarled.

“Bruja mala leche! What the fuck do you think you’re playing at! You can’t push me around!”

“Sure I can.” Her eyes were slate grey, the same colour as the sky, and just as cold. “I need help, and you’re going to give it.”

“What the hell are you talking about?”

“I’ve got a situation. I need someone who isn’t afraid of murder and mayhem.”

I should have charmed her, offered to help and maybe it would have settled it, but I was too mad to even consider it. “Help you? Over my dead body!”

She shrugged. “We can do it that way, too.” She took out her phone. “I’ll call you soon, hopefully within the hour. If you still refuse, I call Smith.” The eyes were hard. “I’d rather not shop you, because I hate that bastard, but I will if you make me.”

I gave her my number. I mean, I wanted to kill her, but in London they notice things like bodies in the street. Especially if you’re careless enough to do it in broad daylight next to a cop shop.
------

Quique is having a bad time. Back in Mexico his marriage has fallen apart and his wife has made him a laughing stock by cheating on him. Now he’s in London and finding himself out of his depth with a complex commercial deal. To make things worse, Natalia Truelove, a chef and pub manager, is blackmailing him. Quique is ready to commit murder and he’s pretty sure who his first victim will be.

Warning: Dirty Dealings contains strong adult language and themes as well as graphic violence and sex scenes.

Release Blitz: MY IMAGE OF YOU by Melanie Moreland

  Title: My Image of You
By: Melanie Moreland
Publication Date: September 19, 2017
Publisher: Random House LLC/Loveswept
Genre: Contemporary Romance
#myimageofyourelease
A globe-trotting bad boy chases the one that got away in this addictive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Contract. My name is Adam Kincaid, and I’m the best at what I do. After losing my parents, I decided to follow in their footsteps, and now I’m the most daring freelance photographer in the world. Maybe some think I’m a loner, but I don’t care. All that matters is the shot: braving danger and devastation in search of a single image with the power to tell someone’s story. But as good as I am, accidents happen—and thank god for that, because it’s what leads me to her. . . Alexandra Robbins. My nurse. My savior. With her fiery red hair and crystal-clear blue eyes, the camera loves her . . . and I have to have her. We soon find that we’re perfect together. We just fit, physically and emotionally. And yet something isn’t right. Something from her past is haunting her, and no matter what I do to help her break free, I lose her. Today is the day I try to win her back. Not only do I need an explanation, I need her in my bed once again. I don’t just want a damn picture—I want her. Because what we have is a love that never fades away. . .
“There are so many things I want to do with you,” I assured her, and licked my lips as I stared at her, my voice husky. “To you.” “Tell me,” she insisted, her fingers curled into fists at her sides. I stepped behind her, wrapping my arm around her waist and pulling her to my chest. I smoothed my fingers up her arm, trailing them along her skin. Small goose bumps broke out, pebbling the surface as I dropped my head down into her neck, kissing and swirling my tongue. “I’m going to explore you—everywhere. I’ll touch and discover every part of you. I want to know what makes you gasp, what drives you to distraction. I’ll find out what I can do to make you groan and beg me to take you. I’ll know your body better than you do.” I drew her skin between my teeth, biting and sucking. “I want to kiss you . . . taste you everywhere.” I slipped my hands under her shirt, teasing the softness of her stomach and side, stroking upward until my hand cupped her breast lightly. “I bet you taste different all over. Sweet some places”—I dropped my hand down, running it along the edge of her waistband—“musky and tangy others.”
New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them. 
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. 
  Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.
