Release Day Blitz!

Purchase on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1HSVGFY

**WARNING: Features the inner thoughts of an alpha male who has had a taste of the woman he craves and now craves more of her. There are obstacles in the way, but to the brilliant and take-no-prisoners Dr. Sessions, obstacles can be taken care of…But the woman…she is the one who matters. Dr. Sessions’ public persona as a celebrity may be as the hot Sex Shrink of Seattle who is the understanding and compassionate man to all women, a perfect gentleman…but when crossed, betrayed, or backed into a corner…he will let his alpha side out. *** 

** This is the third book in a serial that will be consistently releasing every month or so but could be read first before reading Book 1 and 2 or in the order of Book 1, 2, and 3 ** 

I’m Simon Mark Sessions, Dr. of Psychology, Sex Therapist and Former Mr. Body, also an entrepreneur who made millions from owning a health supplement company. I have a practice in Seattle where I am a therapist. They call me the Sex Shrink of Seattle. My enemies call me The Eliminator. It is a reputation I have won the hard way, and there is definitely a past there that I have not yet confronted. Let’s just say, I wasn’t always the nice guy you see on television. Far from that, and the sooner my enemies see that, the farther away they should run. I don’t have time for chit chat, nor to listen to your frustrations and lies, because when you meet The Eliminator, this is one session, you want to avoid at all costs… 

This is a Kailin Romance book that is recommended for 18 and up due to mature subject matter and adult content. Kailin Romance books are new adult, adult or erotica fiction by Kailin Go

I'm Mark Sessions, Dr. of Psychology, Sex Therapist and Former Mr. Body, also an entrepreneur who made millions from owning a health supplement company.
I have a practice in Seattle where I am a therapist. They call me the Sex Shrink of Seattle. Women call me Sex on Legs. I'm an expert on sex because I get plenty of it, and I know a whole lot about it. I'm also on TV as an expert on sex therapy when the whole Fifty Shades thing became big so now my business is exploding with women wanting to learn how to break free of being prudes.
Problem is, I'm in a rut myself. It's not exciting for me anymore, until SHE walked through my door and propped herself down on my sofa. Who knew SHE would be taking lessons from me, but she is, and now she may be the one teaching me a thing or two.
For a mature audience.

Excerpt

"You’re on the speaker with Dr. Sessions and I,” Ella said. “What’s going on?”
The woman started to talk quite fast at first, showing that she was nervous, but then she finally had to take a breath and slow down. “So, what I guess I’m wondering is if men actually go for girls who are close to their ideal woman, or do they go for girls who are convenient, easy to please, and fit into their existing world?”
“Great question,” I said. “You know, it’s often said that women are complicated but I tell you ladies, men are just as complicated. What makes it even worse for us is that we don’t really know how to tell what we want the way you women can. You’re definitely the smarter species.”
Everyone laughed and I shrugged my shoulders in surrender, then leaned back on the couch and crossed my leg over, showing that I was focused on answering the callers question with serious integrity. “From what I’ve seen in my practice and around my friends, the confident men go for women who are ideal because they are not afraid to stretch their limits and become the man who is worthy of the woman they love.”

End Of The Year Book Survey!


To quote the creator  of this Survey...
"My silly little survey I created for myself to highlight what I read in 2010 suddenly grew when a bunch of others jumped in and has turned into such a fun end of year event that I have LOVED hosting and has made my TBR list grow crazily! Seriously, 369 people linked up last year and I know even more participated on their blogs and on Youtube!! So without further ado: the 5th annual End of Year Book Survey!
I know the year isn’t over yet but, as I said in year’s past, this is the time I start reflecting on what I’ve read and start looking ahead because I NEVER get much reading done during December with the holidays and what not!I’ll be filling mine out within the next day or so but I’ll be revising if I happen to read something absolutely earth shattering that would need to be on here!
So feel to fill this out whenever you feel like it…whether that’s today or in January   — I know everybody will want to reflect at different points! Feel free to link up and share your End of Year Book Survey and visit others on the list!

Review: How The Wolf Lost Her Heart by Sarah Brownlee

Book: How The Wolf Lost Her Heart
Author: Sarah Brownlee
Pub. Date: September 17th 2014
Pages: 216
Where To Buy: Barnes & NobleAmazon
Goodreads Link: Goodreads

Synopsis:

Set against the backdrop of a dystopian London where thugs and criminals run rife, Skye Archer possesses a rare gift, the ability to transform into her spirit animal at will. Widely regarding her morphing ability as a curse, Skye's aim is to keep it a secret at all costs. But one day she meets the intriguing and affluent, Raphael Renzo, who soon proves to have a secret of his own, one that could heal the downtrodden city and affect Skye in ways she never thought possible...

This debut novel from author, Sarah Brownlee, is a compelling and gripping read, taking the reader into a world where both the heart of a city and the heart of a girl are simultaneously pierced by one man.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

*Note, I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

My Review:

The main character, Skye Archer, can be a real pain in the butt some times. Then other times I love her. I have a real "love-hate" relationship with her.

This book contained two of my most favorite kinds of shifters ever (which was a plus!) Tiger's and wolves! Mhmm yes please! I thought that they were written well and believable.

To be honest, the only down side with this book didn't deliver the "WOW" factor with me. I mean, it was good, don't get me wrong. It just wasn't that good.

I would really recommend this book to anybody who is just starting to get into the whole shifter realm of books or who would like to try a shifter book, because I'm sure that this book would be fantastic to you guys.

(The Immortality Strain, #1)
Release Date: 12/09/14

Book Summary:
Everyone wants to either be a member of the Guild or work for them. Little does the populace know that the Guild hides sinister secrets...

For Tate Sullivan, life in her small, coastal town is far from glamorous. The affluent lives of the Guild members and their servants isn't something she has ever wanted. But all sixteen year-olds must take a simple test, and Tate's result thrusts her into the Guild's world, one where they hide horrible plans for those they select. Tate must fight the relentless General Dagon for control of her mind, body, and soul to keep the one precious thing she has always taken for granted: herself.

Her only ally is the same handsome boy she is pitted against in General Dagon’s deadly game. Quinn desires nothing more than to end the life of General Dagon who has taken over Tate's mind. While romance blooms between Tate and Quinn, General Dagon plots to eventually take over Tate's body, and love might end before it even begins.
