Blog tour stop! Saving Rain by Karen-Anne Stewart – @SKarenAnne

IMG_1054ABOUT:

Raina has tried to forget her past, forget the pain, but when she finds herself staring straight into the fury blazing in her ex-boyfriend’s eyes, her dark past comes rushing back. Furious with herself for actually having chosen someone like her father, she uses that anger to her advantage and fights for her life…and for her future that she prays will involve the man she can’t seem to get out of her head. Kas is a natural leader, a fierce fighter, the type of man you send in when you need to get the job done. He is a courageous hero who is used to risking his own life to save others, but can he save the one who has captured his heart from her horrific past and the men who are hell-bent on destroying her? As Kas and Raina try to navigate through the twists and turns of a deviously intelligent human trafficking group, they find solace in each other’s arms. Can they infiltrate the trafficker’s tight ring, saving the innocent lives from imminent danger before it’s too late?

Saving Rain is intended for readers 18 and older.(less)

ALEXANDRIA’S REVIEW:

I read this book in about two days and while over all it was a good read, I struggled understanding and keeping interested. It’s very sad and almost frightening in the beginning and I think that is what paused my love for the book. I always love a book, though, that you know that the character are meant to help each other. And that is what this book has!

In the end I did enjoy it and I think I’ll read it again soon to give it another shot. But there was something off for me.

VERDICT:
Give it a shot. You may just fall in love with the characters :)

RATING:3stars

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

karen
I am a new author and have recently discovered that I am now addicted to writing.  My first novel, Saving Rain, was originally going to be a single novel, but  it quickly turned into a trilogy.  I fell in love with the characters and had to continue with the story. Saving Rain is a new adult contemporary romance meant for readers 18 and older.
I live in the mountains with my family, and I love to read, hike, and travel when I am not writing.  I am a sucker for romance, especially a book with a strong alpha male who has a sensitive side.  I also enjoy a good mystery and thrillers.  My favorite author is James Patterson, he is an amazing writer.
With being a newbie, I am just learning all the ropes, but I’m loving the wild ride.  I plan on writing for as long as my fingers have dexterity.

Sharing Pleasures – Book 1 – The Richmond by Victoria Dunne – @erotic_lit

SHARING PLEASURES
ABOUT: Alex has always fantasized about seeing his wife, Diane, pleasured by other men. With the purchase of a very realistic dildo and one very hot leather corset, Alex is now ready to introduce Diane to the idea of taking on other lovers while he watches. Will Diane be open to this new direction in their relationship? Will Alex regret this choice and how will this decision take a toll for the good or bad of their marriage?

REVIEW: In a way it wasn’t really even for me. But there was also a sense of reality to this story. Alex & Diane have been a happily married couple for many years who find themselves with their grown child out of the house, hence “Empty Nest” – Diane has had a personal transformation of life having lost weight and toned her body and bringing that self confidence back to herself. Alex follows suit with his wife and Bow Flex becomes a daily routine and he has to make a transformation of his own. They, as a couple, have always had a good sex life it has just turned into more experimental. Having told each other their own personal fantasies they decide to take act them. Diane learns that Alex has fantasied about watching his wife with other men; will they play out this scenario. How will Diane feel about her husband’s fantasy and will Alex regret this?…should Diane agree.

Diane & Alex now frequent a local bar that had live music and good overallvibe, friendly people, great and friendly staff that have become to know them well. The perfect setting to perhaps make this dream fantasy until a reality scene. Also Alex has become a regular at an adult store that has toys and wonderful sexy clothing that he loves to surprise Diane with. A certain leather corset helps this untold fantasy become a erotic reality for both. Diane having and oozing self confidence has no problem turning a head or two…

Being a short read I would say exceptionally hot the fantasy becomes life, and I’m sure perhaps this happens more in marriages than people think, and why this may not work for a relationship to add spice this way, Kudos to them.

Would I read more from Victoria Dunne – I have no doubt that I would indeed, would I act on them? probably not. But change of pace reading is a great quality to a reader, exposure to different and new things is good for the mind, it bring thought, possibilities and exploration. I don’t think that is ever a bad thing.

VERDICT: Not For Everyone.
