Mr.Wright by Liz Kelly

Mr. Wright (Heroes of Henderson Book 6) by [Kelly , Liz ]
Mr. Wright
Series: Heroes of Henderson, Book 6
Author: Liz Kelly
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 24th 2017

After Dallas, Laidey Bartholomew finds Henderson to be a breath of fresh air. Out from under the expectations of her socialite family, she can be as invisible as she chooses. She’s perfectly happy flying under the radar, until a hot-tempered, masculine work of art roars into town on his Road King and zeroes in on her. 
All of a sudden, Laidey’s not invisible anymore. 
Xavier Wright hasn’t lived in Henderson for fourteen years. You’d think by now everyone would have forgotten about his juvenile antics. Knowing his sick ma doesn’t need any additional stress in her life, he’s determined to make amends for his bad-boy ways. Unfortunately, a certain little newcomer continually brings out the worst in him.
She’s way too prissy for him. He’s way too domineering for her. 
Harry believes it’s a match made in heaven. 
All the books in the Heroes of Henderson Series are complete romances. They do not need to be read in order, but it might be more fun that way as characters continue to show up in Henderson in big ways and small.
My Review
I was so excited to head back to Henderson much like Xavier Wright on his hard candy hot-rod-red Road King. We got to catch up with old friends and make some new ones on this road trip back to the town everyone wishes they could visit. 
Xavier with his gruff yet swoon-worthy demeanor and Laidey... well she was just adorable. I loved the sentiment that it took her leaving home to find her home. Xavier and Laidey's story kept me glued to my Kindle. It was so enthralling to watch these two discover they were the yin to the others yang. 
On a side note: Getting to know a new (existing) Henderson family - the Wrights was beyond delightful. If Xavier is any indication of what's to expect if more Wrights do in fact come back to Henderson... I CANT WAIT!!

Immersive Fantasy™ Instructions
Getting set up - These three steps are crucial to ensure you can access the AR content.

1. On your smartphone or tablet, download the Aurasma app from your app store.

2. Login to the app, and register your account.

3. Search for the user ‘MarkedByFate’, and click follow.

Accessing the Immersive Fantasy™ Augmented Reality content - Follow these steps carefully to access the AR content. Additional help can be found on the Aurasma help desk.

1. Read and enjoy the story, and watch for clues to the AR content. These will appear in the form of images with a symbol next to them, denoting the type of AR content. Content viewable includes images (camera icon), videos (movie clip icon), or music (music icon).

2. You will need one device/format to read on, and a smart device to access the AR content.

3. When you spot an Immersive Fantasy™ clue, open the Aurasma app on your smart device.(Navigate to the viewfinder screen if the app does not automatically do this.)

4. Centre your viewfinder on the trigger image. Make sure to include all of the trigger image in the screen. You can view the content vertically/in portrait or horizontally/in landscape.

5. The app will display the AR content in the form of an image overlay, video overlay, or music overlay, as denoted by the symbol next to the image.

6. Enjoy! You can zoom in and out and tilt your camera to fully explore each piece of content. Make sure you have your sound turned on so you can listen to the video and audio content! You will have to continue focusing on the content to keep listening to music/watching videos/viewing images.

7. It might take a little practice – don’t worry if you struggle on your first try.

Troubleshooting - What to try if it won’t work.

1. No AR content is popping up: have you registered an Aurasma account, and followed ‘MarkedByFate’? You must do this to access the content.

2. No AR content is popping up: have you made sure all of the trigger image is in your viewfinder?

3. No AR content is popping up on my kindle/e-ink device: please adjust your device screen brightness. If the screen is too bright or too dim, the image cannot be recognized by the app.

4. I can’t hear any sound: check the icon. Only video/music AR content has sound.

5. I can’t hear any sound, and it should be playing some: please ensure your volume is not muted and turned up.

6. The content keeps disappearing: ensure you keep the viewfinder focused on the trigger image so that the AR content will remain overlaid on your screen.If you move too far away from the trigger image, the AR content will disappear.Activate it again by re-scanning the trigger image.

7. Can I access the eBook and the AR content on the same device? No. Aurasma uses your device camera so you will have to read the book on a different device to the device you are using Aurasma with.

8. It’s just not working – I’ve tried everything: Please refer to the Aurasma help files, and contact their helpdesk if you are still having issues. Whilst extensive testing has been performed to ensure maximum device compatibility, regrettably not all devices may be compatible. Best compatibility will be found on pixel-based screens with good brightness levels.

He was a nameless guy in a bar--a man Grace couldn't get out of her head... 
A week later, she came home to find him sweaty and shirtless with a tape measure in hand, remodeling her loft. As a Parker-King, she's not allowed to want someone like Noah Dalton. She's sick of her life, though. Sick of the rules of being a Parker-King. She wants something more, even if it isn't forever. Somewhere in history, there was that one time where hot, no-strings-attached sex didn't end badly, right? Finding comfort in the arms of a former SEAL is easy, not falling for one . . . not so much. 
Noah left the military and moved to New York for one reason: his daughter. Not for some uptight businesswoman--a Manhattan elitist. So when Grace offers him the kind of relationship that no hot-blooded man can turn down, he should say no. And when her seemingly put-together life spins out of control, and his instincts to protect and save kick in, he should turn away. But he doesn't. 
Can two people from different worlds really live in the moment, knowing they're on borrowed time, or is someone bound to get hurt?

A splash of light shines beneath the door at the end of the hall. I swear I didn’t leave anything on this morning.
I touch the knob, a slight tremble moving down my arm and to my hand as I think back to the hotel in Greece.
My stomach tightens and burns, and my pulse skates to a faster speed. I slowly twist the handle, but my mind is protesting, begging me to run. My body is stiff and my muscles taut.
I should’ve run that night in Athens. Why’d I open that door? Why am I opening this one?
I inhale a deep breath, holding it—and it’s like the air in the room cocoons me and I can’t exhale.
I’m expecting the worst. Athens, part two. Another incident.
But once the door is wide-open, I see a man crouched over a wooden beam on the floor, a tape measurer in hand. The guy’s shirtless. His tanned, muscled back has a slight sheen of sweat down his spine.
He’s got to be part of the new remodel team I hired last weekend.
I bring a hand to my chest and try to calm down. To get my mind off Greece and back in New York.
“Who the hell are you?”
He’s a carpenter, right? I just want confirmation.
My hand goes inside my purse, and I search for my phone just in case I need to call the cops.
The man releases his tape measure and it retracts and snaps, falling with a thud to the floor. He slowly lifts his hands as if he can actually see me and I have a gun on him.
He rises to his feet. “Sorry. I work for Bella. She gave me the key.” He turns toward me.
My lungs deflate as if they’ve been poked with a needle, and I’m losing oxygen fast. It’s not because of Athens.
It’s because it’s…him.
Military Guy. Unless I’m wrong about him being military.
I’m never wrong.
“You.” His brows pull together and his hands fall to his sides.
I remove my hand from my purse and drop the bag to the floor. I’m more comfortable now that I know the shirtless guy isn’t some psychopath but in fact a construction worker.
But it’s the hot guy from the bar, which is still pretty damn bad.
“You’re Grace? I wasn’t expecting—”
“And what were you expecting?” I fold my arms and remain standing just inside the living area. He’s near the wall of windows overlooking the city on the other side of the room.
“I guess I pictured Grace as someone twice your age with a lot of cats.” A sheepish grin sweeps across his face.
I open my palms and glance to the left then right. “Do you see any cats?”
His smile deepens.
“And does my name sound old?” Maybe it does. The hyphen doesn’t help.
“Well, I don’t think that anymore. Now looking at you—Grace fits.”
I’m not sure what that’s supposed to mean, and I don’t bother to ask. I blink and try to figure out what the hell is going on.
“Are you stalking me?” I ask instead, though I know this must be crazy stupid luck that he’s now remodeling my loft. Of the millions of people in the city…

My Review
Standing up for yourself and learning to trust again are two tasks that are immensely more difficult than one thinks. Grace has been living under the restraints and expectations from her family for far too long. Burned by the opposite sex, navy seal Noah just wants his daughter. These two have a lot to overcome... 
This story is packed with characters you can't help but root for, characters you want to kick in the booty, and even ones you will completely misjudge. I laughed, screamed, and cried throughout these pages and when an author can pull those emotions from a reader you know its a fantastic read, amazing escape, and the wonderfully written journey they bring you along on.

Touching Infinity by Erin Hayes

Touching Infinity 
Author Erin Hayes
In the future, corporations rule the galaxy. And they’re willing to pay a hefty price to get ahead of the competition. 
Enter the downlooters—space pirates who have no affiliation with any corporation. They’ll steal any information for the highest buyer. It’s dangerous work, but for some, it’s the only way to make a living. 
It’s how Clementine Jones has spent most of her life. As first mate of the PĂ­cara, she’s more robot than human and the one who downloads classified information to her storage banks. 
After years of making successful downlooting runs, she thought she was prepared for everything. She was wrong. 
During a particularly easy run, she accidentally downloots a virus unlike anything the galaxy has ever seen. It’s already killed hundreds of thousands at a space port, and it wants to spread even further. 
Worst of all, it wants to do it through Clementine.
My Review
An author so talented they have you reading sub genres you never considered before and LOVING every minute of it. Truthfully, I am not sure anyone but the talented Erin Hayes could get this reader to WILLINGLY go any where near space pirates never mind enjoy the journey. The world she paints is so detailed you feel like your right there with Clem and her crew on the Picara. This is an action packed hit that will pull you in faster than a black hole. As this is book one I am all too excited to see where things go from here.

Fallen Halos: Watchtower 1 by Erin Hayes and Rebecca Hamilton

Fallen Halos: Watchtower 1 
Authors Erin Hayes and Rebecca Hamilton
Charmed Leagacy Cursed Angel Watchtowers
Genre Post-Apocalyptic Romance
Release Date October 2nd, 2017

Haunted. Cursed. Helpless. Life is dangerous this close to the Door to Hell. 
Half insane after the death of his wife and daughter, Rahym runs a lodge near the Door to Hell. With a sector curse that causes anyone to collapse into Hibernation after four hours of exertion, a stay at the lodge is the only way for people to cross the Karakum Desert without falling victim to fire or demonlings. 
Then Nakir, an old friend and the angel leading the rebel group known as Halos, appears with a plan to break the curse. He’s brought Rahym’s childhood love Jennet whose special witch powers may be the tipping point the resistance needs to win.
But first, they’ll have to brave Hell itself. 
They just need Rahym to show them the way. He’ll have to decide if he’s willing to risk his life for a cause he once believed in. Or if there’s even enough left of the world worth saving.

My Review
This standalone installment in the Charmed Legacy: Cursed Angel Watchtowers collection features Rahym Tezel as our lead hero. Nakir is a fallen angel and Jennet a witch. They travel through the Door to Hell in hopes of lifting the curse. This world is wonderfully constructed and such a fascinating plot! I honestly couldn't put it down and went to CharmedLegacy.com afterwards to find more books in the collection.

BROMOSEXUAL by Daryl Banner

Bromosexual by [Banner, Daryl]
Author Daryl Banner
Genre M/M Romance
Release Date October 9th, 2017

Stefan Baker, who used to be my best friend and bro, is a totally cocky bastard.
And he knows it too. 
With his backwards cap, lopsided grin, and ripped bod gifted from the gods, he struts around town like he owns it. 
But I won’t let him own me, no matter how hot he's gotten over the past eight years since he went off to become a pro baseball player in the major leagues - and since we had our brutal falling out and everything fell apart. 
But when a hard night lands him at my front doorstep - desperately in need of a place to stay - I get one look into those rich blue eyes of his ... and realize our story is far from over. 
My former "bro" and I are about to define a whole new term for the steamy, beautiful mess that's about to happen between the two of us.
My Review
I'm going, to be honest, and say I was a little worried to start this book. The title conjured up ridiculous images of a novel full of cliches and annoying frat boys but I had faith the author (one I've come to love) would deliver something amazing.  
The lesson I learned from this novel is have faith and you'll be delivered something beautiful. Life is all about the gray as nothing is ever black and white folks. The only thing one ever needs to put in the blank that follows "I am" is me. You don't need to be one thing or another. You just need to be you!  
You'll find this author's trademark humor and wit light up these pages as your drawn into one epic, angsty, slow-burn, yet hott romantic journey. I honestly highly recommended you give this story a read, funny title and all. Because titles or labels don't mean a thing!! I hope you love Stefan and Ryan's journey as much as I did.

Ruin of the Gods by Erin Hayes

Ruin of the Gods (The Elysium Legacies Book 3) by [Hayes, Erin]
Ruin of the Gods
Author Erin Hayes
Series The Elysium Legacies, book 3

Hell hath no Fury. Because she’s taking a vacation. 
Officer Tessa Forney is a brilliant cop with a fiery temper and a predilection for toeing the line of the law. She’s good at her job too, much to the chagrin of her by-the-book partner Raph. She just always seems to be at the right place at the right time. 
What Raph doesn’t know is that Tessa is actually Tisiphone, one of the Furies of ancient Greek mythology. After breaking up with her boyfriend of five-thousand-years because he cheated on her—bastard—Tisiphone is determined to take her anger out on the bad guys during her extended mortal vacation. 
But when too many gods and goddesses suddenly decide to take time off, the balance of nature is thrown into disarray. And the consequences are far bigger than Tisiphone could have ever anticipated. 
These gods aren’t going on vacation—they’re being kidnapped. And she will have to find them before it’s too late. 
New York Times bestselling author Erin Hayes presents Ruin of the Gods, which continues Tisiphone's story where Callie's left off in Shades of the Gods and Blood of the Gods.

My Review
The always surprising yet never dull Tisiphone is back to tell us her story in book 3 of The Elysium Legacies series. Hell's youngest Fury is still on vacation in the mortal world and keeping busy as Officer Tessa Forney. Mortals and Gods/Goddesses alike should take cover though. Because our favorite Fury is even more furious as she deals with a broken heart. Five thousand years is a long time to just get over... There's a sake up at the police station and the mortals seem to be shy some important godly influences. Can Tisiphone get to the bottom of everything before its too late? 
I was beyond excited for the third book in this addictive series and totally intrigued to learn more about the fiery Fury we connected with, laughed because of, and totally wanted as a best friend from the first two books. This authors talent for crafting relatable and deep characters and storylines that will provide epic book hangovers is present and accounted for in Ruin of the Gods and this reader highly recommends you do NOT miss out!

The Harker Trilogy by Erin Hayes

Book 1: Damned if I Do

Damned if I Do (The Harker Trilogy Book 1) by [Hayes, Erin]
Available in KU and on Amazon HERE
I've spent the last five months trying to find the bastard who took my sister's life and ruined mine. 
Being brought up in a family that hunted the supernatural should have helped, but even with a slim chance that I can save us all, there's still the bigger chance I'll die trying.
Unfortunately, there's one important thing my family didn't tell me: When you fight against immortal vampires, you're the one who's running out of time. 

Book 2: Damned if I Don't

Damned if I Don't (The Harker Trilogy Book 2) by [Hayes, Erin]
Available in KU and on Amazon HERE
After botching our chance to cure vampirism and the infection that's killing me, I'm at a loss. My cousin Carl won't speak to me. The bastard who killed my sister is still alive. And Jude, the amnesiac vampire, says he's in love with me. 
What's even more shocking is that I love him back. 
But the more Jude learns about his past, the more it will tear our relationship and our lives apart. I'm running out of time to find a new successor to become the new Progenitor. Because when I die, it's game over for all of us. 

Book 3: Damned Either Way

Damned Either Way (The Harker Trilogy Book 3) by [Hayes, Erin]
Available in KU and on Amazon HERE
I’m finally free of my family’s curse. 
Except now, the world is ending. FML.  
Anthony, the vampire that killed my sister and my brother-in-law, has won. I've lost everything. I no longer have my powers. I have no idea where Amelia is. And the vampire I love has surrendered to the hunger that is throwing the world into chaos. 
The worst part? I can't do anything about it, because I'm no longer the Harker. Sure, I'm not dying anymore, but I'm barely living at this point.  
But there may be one last chance to save us all. If only I can find it in me to make one final sacrifice.
