Cover Reveal and Preorder Link: Wicked Fall by Sawyer Bennett

Title: Wicked Fall
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Series: The Wicked Horse, #1
Never in your wildest dreams could you begin to imagine all the filthy and depraved things that go on inside The Wicked Horse. Step inside and Woolf Jennings will make every one of your dirty fantasies come true.

He's covered in a facade of deception. An enticing blend of multi-millionaire and hot-as-hell Wyoming rancher, those that think they know Woolf Jennings admire his abilities to preside as CEO of his family's cattle and oil empire. But only a privileged few truly understand what fuels the glitter of depravity in those gorgeous blue eyes. Only a few know he's opened up a sinfully erotic and private sex club named The Wicked Horse right at the base of the beautiful Teton Mountain range.

Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she's managed to put herself right in Woolf's line of sight... the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down.

Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie's dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he's ever believed about himself.

Blog Tour: LOVE ALWAYS, DAMIAN by D Nichole King

Author: d. Nichole King
Series: Love Always Series Book #2
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
They say time heals all wounds. 
What a load of bull. It’s been four years, and Kate’s voice still echoes in my mind. 
Every. Damn. Day. 
I numb her memory when it taunts me. In college, I drown her out with booze and easy lays. 
I can’t do what she asked. 
I can’t let her go. 
Not even when Lia shows up, freaking ripping what’s left of me to shreds. Caring about someone isn’t worth the deadness that follows after they’re gone. I didn’t ask for this. Didn’t ask for her. 
And I sure as hell didn’t plan to miss her when she walked out of my front door. Now, if I want to keep her, I have to straighten myself out and earn her. I can’t screw this up. 
Because if I do, I’ll lose more than just Lia. 

I’ll lose my life…

It takes me an hour to get to the cemetery. After Mom and Liam died, I never stepped foot here. Not until Kate convinced me to come. It had been one of her five wishes. One through three I’d done because she was with me. Because I loved her. I promised her number four, so I followed through. Number five, though?
Number five is impossible.
I come here often now—day, night, whenever I need to be close to her. Even in death, Kate draws me in. To this place where she’d only trodden once when she was alive.
I grab the three bouquets of flowers from the passenger seat and swing the door open. When Kate brought me here four years ago, I barely managed to get out of the car. Now it’s easy.
Too fucking easy.
I don’t even think about coming anymore. It’s automatic. Routine, like my nightly shots of whiskey.
It shouldn’t be like this. In three short years I lost the three people I loved most. Death sucks, and I’ve had my fill.
I slam the door closed and tread over the grass. The three identical stones jut up from the ground, and even when I’m here after dark, I don’t have a problem seeing them. They’re etched into my memory.
The idea to have Kate buried here beside my mother and brother was entirely mine and entirely selfish. The Browdys had asked me to help with her funeral arrangements, and other than the time of the graveside service, this had been my only request. This way she’d be close to me.
Shade from the elder tree casts a shadow over them. I stand inside its cover from the sun, facing the cold memorials. These pieces of granite have no real connection with the people they were.
Hell, they didn’t even pick them out. Didn’t see them, yet their names, dates of birth and death are etched into them as if they’d been owned by those they claim to represent.
Cemeteries—these stones—aren’t for the dead.
No, they’re for the living.
My gaze trails over the Celtic symbols engraved at the center of each one. Identical to the tattoos inked into my body. Faith. Brotherhood. Hope.
My eyes linger on Kate’s as they usually do, and the memory of when I’d given her the trinity heart necklace pours over me.
“It’s the Celtic symbol for hope. Now you’ll always know where to find it,” I’d told her.
Damn. I’d given it to her so she’d think of me whenever she needed me, but really, it was I who needed her.
I take a deep breath to hold myself together. I lost everything the day Kate died.
I rake a hand through my hair and shut my eyes. Out here, away from everyone, I don’t have to pretend that I have a fucking clue how to live without her.
Out here, it’s just me.
In front of Kate’s gravestone, I lower myself to the ground, dropping the flowers at my side. My chest is empty, yet somehow, it hurts. It’s the same damn thing year after year—aching to see her smile at me just one more time. One more and I’d be satisfied, I tell myself.
I know it’s a lie because one more smile from her would never be enough. I need to touch her, run my fingers over her warm skin and protect the hell out of her.
But I’m a failure. I had the power within me, in my blood, to save her, and I failed.
I can barely see the inches in front of me as I break down. Four years ago, my father sat here with me and told me the pain would never go away, but it would lessen over time.
What a load of bullshit; the pain has only grown.
“I miss you so damn much, Katie,” I say even though she can’t hear me. And that thought kicks me in the gut as much as anything. No matter what I say to her now, she’ll never know any of it.
I slide my fingertips over her name: Kathryn “Katie” Browdy. Seventeen short years on this earth and I only had her last months. They were the best months of my life.
I sit with her until the sun begins to send streaks of gold over the horizon. Even though Kate would be disappointed, I need to pick up more liquor before I head home. I have to have something to get me through this pain.
A gust of wind rustles the dead flowers I left on their graves last week. I scoop them up and replace them with the fresh ones I brought. Daisies for my mother, some generic flowers he wouldn’t give a shit about for Liam, and red roses for Kate.
Always red roses for my Katie.
“Love you, Mom,” I murmur, fanning out the daisies in the vase beside her headstone.
Then I move onto Liam’s. “Take care of my girl, man,” I tell him, then I remember how I’d taken care of his. “But if you touch her, I’ll fucking kill you.”
I squat down and lay Kate’s roses at the base of her stone. There’s nothing I could say to her that I haven’t already said a million times. So I settle for the words I couldn’t say until just before she died. “I love you, baby. I’ll always love you.”

Since I was born and raised in Iowa, I like to create stories where my home state is the setting. There's nothing like small-town Midwest scenery to create the perfect backdrop for an amazing tale!

I've always loved to read and write. I'll read anything: Classics, fantasy, contemporary, mystery, horror. It doesn't matter as long as it draws me in. As a kid, I was raised on authors such as Lurlene McDaniel, R.L. Stine, Danielle Steele, Mary Higgins Clark, Stephen King, and Shakespeare.

Writing-wise, my fondness lies in the YA/NA genre, though I do have a couple of women's fiction stories swimming around in my head. 

When not writing, I'm usually curled up with a book, scrapbooking, or doing yet another load of laundry.

Along with my incredible husband, I live in small-town Iowa with my four adorable (yet ornery) children and our dog, Peaches.

Book Review: Freeing by Ek Blair

Title: Freeing
Author: Ek Blair
Series: Fading Trilogy, #2
**This is a companion novel to the USA Today Bestseller, FADING.**

Knowing who you are and accepting who you are come at different prices. 

Jase Kinrick grew up in your typical, all-American household. But after the death of his sister, his parents shut down, forcing him to deal with everything life throws his way alone. Terrified of the person he’s discovering himself to be, Jase has his way with every willing girl to try and rid himself of what he fears he is—gay. 

Escaping California and moving to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, Jase frees himself to the reality that he likes men. Never staying with any guy long enough to get to know them, he doesn’t realize that he’s still hiding from who he is until he meets Mark. Scared of having real feelings for another guy stirs up the questions and fears he’s fought hard to bury. 

To strip away the barriers to the heart of what is real, and to be okay with what lies underneath, will be Jase’s moment of truth. But he’ll need Mark to lead him there.

4.5 emotional stars

*It is recommended that you read Fading before reading this. Freeing is a companion novel.*

Having read Fading in August 2013, I have clearly had a break and many books in between....but I will admit that it was so easy to get back into this storyline. Knowing that this was a companion novel to Fading, I knew there was going to be some overlap in the story and I was concerned about that because I don't enjoy the retelling of a story in a whole new book. Well, let me tell you this much: it is NOT a retelling....we get his POV, but the story revolves around Jase and what he is going through. I loved the voice in this story and how it was told.

Jase has a lot of pain in his life....he lost his sister, he isn't close with his family and he is struggling with his own identity. Is he gay or is he straight? He fights so hard with himself and that just really made me feel so bad for him. No one should have to go through this alone and he hid so much and shouldered the burden of his own mental hangups. My ached for him. And then to find out your best friend gets brutally raped? That terror he felt, and the realization that that sort of pain is inconsolable must have been just heartbreaking. I teared up seeing this through his eyes.

~But I'm scared. I'm scared to know what this has done to her spirit. How will she ever heal from this?~

In addition to everything else going on in his life, Jase was constantly trying to come to terms with who he was and what his feelings for men were, let alone Matt. The walk we took in his shoes was very difficult for him personally, and the cruelty he dealt with was something no one should EVER have to deal with. Interestingly enough, it was emotionally tiring for me as well. Back and forth, try and give was never-ending for him. It really just made me feel for him....he had an amazing new boyfriend, and he didn't know how to accept that fact. He couldn't come to terms with it and that made it hard on not only him, but Mark too.

While this was Jase's book, Candace was an integral part of it because she is an integral part of Jase's life. Jase adored Candace....we know this from Fading, but they had a relationship like no other. He was her protector and was always there for her. I loved that their relationship was so deep, so secure, that they knew they had each other's backs and nothing would get in the way of that. I appreciated Mark, but once he showed who he was and how much he cared for Jase, I fell hard for him. But his acceptance of Jase's relationship with Candace was what sealed the deal. The ability to 'see' the love that these three had for each other was very interesting as it was a little different than the norm, but I enjoyed watching Mark and Candace's relationship blossom. I was able to feel the emotion that these friends had for each other. These two men loved her unconditionally and it was very apparent. Seeing this happen through Jase's eyes was a treat. Their dynamic was written so perfectly; one was her emotional sounding board and the other really had a stronger grasp on the mental anguish and was there verbally to help guide her AND Jase. So perfect were they for perfect.

There was one point during the story that made ME think that Jase had found his center....but hadn't realized it yet. When the arms of your lover can deliver you peace, hold on with all your might because finding comfort after pain isn't always easy. Mark was such a good man for Jase and I loved the way he comforted him and was always patient with him. He was devoted to Jase....and Jase was slowly coming to realize this.

~My mind creeps back to reality, and I wonder, through all the hurt I've caused people, what I ever did that was so right to deserve this. This right here.~

The emotion in this story was delivered very well. I love Mark and Jase, and I love how they fit so well together. Completely, 100% in love with these two. This book was so good.

As soon as my needle touches his skin, I know this guy is different. He talks to me about the weather and then I feel him sliding down in the chair. Very slowly. No way this is an accident. As he moves down, my face is closer to somewhere it shouldn’t be. If he wants to play, he’s come to the right place. Time to up the ante so I move my shading needles faster and deeper into his leg.

“Ow, that hurt.”


~ B ~
Grabbing my hand, Daniel leads me to the stairs. Guessing, he continues in the direction of my bedroom. I shut the door with a kick of my foot. Turning, I move my hands up his chest, my eyes taking in everything manly about him. “I hope you’re one of those guys who keeps a condom in his wallet, because if not, we’re going to have a problem.”
Daniel’s hands find the edge of my t-shirt and rolls it up and over my head. Without hesitation he says, “Yeah, I’m one of those guys. Take off your pants.”
