SWEET JAYNE by K. Webster Release Blitz & Review



B L U R B:
Nadia Jayne’s world is full of villains.

Kasper thinks he hates her.
Donovan thinks he loves her.
Logan thinks he owns her.

Sweet Jayne is a complicated girl…

She needs Kasper.
She hides from Donovan.
She has a plan for Logan.

But maybe complicated Jayne isn’t so sweet after all…
In fact, she might just be the biggest villain of them all.

WARNING: Story contains dark taboo themes and violence both sexual and physical which could trigger emotional distress in reader.


M Y   R E V I E W:
This book was so damn good. Right from the start. I was just so incredibly engrossed right from the very start. I've said before that K. Webster is the Queen of Mindfuckery and this book simply goes to prove that point. 

One thing that never ceases to amaze me about K. Webster's work is how as the book opens, she sweetly takes hold of your hand. And as the book goes on, she slowly leads you right out of your comfort zone. And before you know it, you're so far out of your comfort zone that you don't know which way is up, but you're so fucking wrapped up in the story that there's no way in hell you could ever turn back! 

I loved the characters in this book. Nadia Jayne, she has such a sweet innocent quality to her, however she's brilliant, her mind always working, always racing. You know her intentions are good and pure however you are never quite certain of her agenda, or just how far she is willing to go. 

Now, lets talk about the men in Nadia's life... 
Donovan, Nadia's step father totally oozes sexy, overprotective businessman. While you're not completely sure you can trust him, there is just something about him that makes you want to. I don't know what it was about him but he drew me in right from the very start. And I was TEAM DONOVAN before I could even figure out why. ...it felt so wrong but oh so right. 

Kasper Kasper just rubbed me the wrong way right from the start. He was out for vengeance, revenge on Sweet Jayne for doing wrong by him. I understood why he felt like his actions were justified but I still wanted just to share him a little and talk some since into him. I just love Nadia's heart and I feel like anyone who had the chance to get to know her could see what a good person she is. I wanted Ghost to see her. Ugh he made me SO MAD....until he didn't. I know that sounds like a spoiler but its not. There was just point in the book where I understood him a little better. Not because of something that clicked in the story, but because of something that clicked in my head & my heart. 

Logan Well what can I even say about this dude... he is one intense crazy sexy motherfucker. I think I'll have to let you meet him for yourself. 

This book was a crazy wild ride. A journey that ONLY K. Webster could take us on. I love K. Webster's work, and I can't think of anyone on the planet who I would so willingly hand my heart over to time and time again to dismantle, butcher, and then put back together again. I'm pretty sure she's taken a couple of years off my life, however I've given them willingly and I'll do it again... and again. 

I love this woman's writing almost as much s I love the woman behind the writing.

Ten submissive women. One billionaire dominant. Three months competing for his “affections.”
One winner takes all.
Dominic Reed, heir to an oil fortune, has spent his entire adult life perfecting his dark hobby. With little control in every other area of his manicured life, he finds his release as a dominant. With more money than he knows what to do with, he creates a TV show: The Dom Games.
This year is different than the past seasons, this year Dominic will be the star. He wants a forever submissive.
Before last month Kayla Parchet thought the word submissive only referred to dogs.

When Kayla is accepted to be one of the ten, her world takes a dark turn as she competes against women who live the submissive lifestyle for enjoyment. Can she hold on to her dreams long enough to win the competition and ten million dollars? Or will she get sucked into Dominic’s twisted world?
Only a few whips and canes stand between Kayla and the future she’s always desired.
Lights, camera, sex…
 


M Y   R E V I E W:
There are so many, SO many amazing books out there, we have TBRs with dozens if not hundreds of books on them, so to crack open a book, or as a blogger to agree to review a book, its an actual commitment, one I don't take lightly at all. I've never read a by Rachel Robinson before, but I read the blurb for this book and it just sounded like SO MUCH FUN! I don't even watch Reality TV but I think it totally was the idea of the reality TV show that totally hooked me. I read it and thought, "Ok this is gonna be awesome" 

And it did not disappoint! I couldn't even put it down for the first like 65% of it! But then, against my will, I had to sleep. Surprisingly the book didn't just focus mainly on the show or the games itself it put most of the focus on the two main characters. Which I loved. Because as interesting as the story is with the other contestants, and the dynamics of the game, I just LOVED the chemistry and the dynamic between Dom & Kayla. 

My critiques at all was that the book was a teensy bit predictable, and I also felt like the pacing slowed down quite a bit about 75% of the way through, I couldn't read it fast enough and then (to me) it just slowed down quite a bit. However, it was still really good and I thoroughly enjoyed it all of the way through. 

It was a lighthearted, fun book, it will be a perfect naughty pool side read! ENJOY! I did! :)

A B O U T  T H E  A U T H O R:
Rachel Robinson grew up in a small, quiet town full of loud talkers. Her words were always only loud on paper. She has been writing stories and creating characters for as long as she can remember. After living on the west coast for many years she recently moved to Virginia Beach, VA.

Crazy Good, her contemporary romance novel, is an International Amazon bestseller.

THIS OLD HEART OF MINE by AJ Compton Book Review



B L U R B:
Ava Malone knows all about being broken-hearted.

Born with a severe heart defect, she’s spent her whole life in and out of hospital desperately needing a transplant.

Just days from death, her weak prayers are finally answered, and she receives a new heart; one that not only saves her life, but changes it forever.

Now fit and healthy, Ava is able to do things she only dreamt of, like get a job and some independence, fall in love, and finally live life to the fullest.

But her journey of self-discovery takes her to places she never expected. Along the way, Ava doesn’t just find the woman she was always meant to be, but she also finds out more about the woman who no longer is. The one who gave her this new life because she lost hers.


Faced with a devastating dilemma, Ava must decide whether the heart that’s pumping inside her body now belongs to her, or is still beating for someone else.


M Y   R E V I E W:
Just wow, a beautiful book, through and through, cover to cover, inside and out. When I read the blurb, before this book came out, I have to admit, I was nervous. So scared that this book would wreck me, and break me. But AJ Compton is such an amazing writer I decided to bite the bullet and put my heart in her hands with the the trust that she wouldn't completely smash it to smithereens. :) 

I was so afraid that this book would be a story of love and loss. But it was SO MUCH MORE then that. It was a coming of age story of second chances. Not second chance love, but a second chance at LIFE. There are so many inspiring love stories going on in this book, the love between Ava and her best friend Finn is truly heartwarming. Ava falling in love for the first time was just.. the SWEETEST thing. But what touched me the most, was the story of Ava falling head over heels in love with LIFE! It was such a beautiful journey and I'm so thankful I was able to take part in it with her. 
Throughout this book, there is the exceptional bonus of being able to read some of the most beautiful poems I've ever read. I'm not an avid poetry reader, have never read a full book of poetry, however the poems in This Old Heart of Mine... they BLEW ME AWAY! They left me breathless and teary eyed. They were just absolutely beautiful! 

In one part of This Old Heart of Mine a sweet little girl asks Gabriel what a poet is. Gabriel replies, "Its someone who tells stories like an author, only the stories come from your heart, instead of your head." The little girl tells him, "I wanna be a poet, too." and Gabriel says "You can still be an author and be a poet. Just remember to write your stories from the heart." I LOVED THIS. And AJ Compton, is most definitely an author and a poet. She writes with her whole heart all the way down to her soul. She left it all on the page in this book and its absolutely beautiful!  It was an honor to read it, and I hope you all treat  yourself to this breathtaking story! 
E X C E R P T:

"...His laughter mingles with mine and is absorbed by the stars.
It’s a moment granted to us by people I hope are in the sky above us now, laughing as they look down.
I’m sure others on the ground are staring at the scene we’re making, casting their judgments. But they don’t know us, not like we know us.
They don’t understand the hope in our eyes or the alchemy of our blood.
They don’t know our truth. Our hearts. Our lives.
Lives that we now have the freedom to live or waste.
Once. Twice. Or as many damn times as we like."

P U R C H A S E    L I N K S:


A B O U T   T H E   A U T H O R:
A.J. Compton wants a lot of things; 

To write books that make you think and feel deeply.

To make you ugly cry and cry with laughter. In the same book.

To write stories that make you anti-social and have you staying up until 4am to finish them.

To show that life can be cruel and difficult, but it can also be incredibly beautiful and worthwhile.

And what A.J. really wants, is to write books that make you remember why you love to read.

AJ knows better than most that we don't always get what we want in life, but is going to give it a damn good try ;)

About CHARGED:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the second installment in the Saints of Denver series featuring a bad girl and a by the book attorney who could be her salvation…or her ruin.

Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Ever. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome. Avett is a pink-haired troublemaker with a bad attitude and a history of picking the wrong men.

When Avett lands in a sea of hot water because of one terrible mistake, the only person who can get her out of it is the insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on the no-nonsense attorney who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance. He literally has her fate in his hands. Yet there is something about him that makes her want to convince him to loosen his tie and have a little fun…with her.

Quaid never takes on clients like the impulsive young woman with a Technicolor dye job. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. Still, he’s determined to keep their relationship strictly business. But doing so is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.

As they work side-by-side, they’ll have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other—because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.


EXCERPT:
Avett

Don’t worry, Sprite, bad decisions always make for good stories…
              I could hear my dad’s gruff voice, lightened with humor, in my ear as he told me those words every single time I got caught doing something I wasn’t supposed to do when I was growing up. I was always doing something I shouldn’t then and now, so I heard those words a lot from him. Unfortunately, as an adult, my bad decisions resulted in consequences far worse than a scraped knee or a broken wrist from falling out of the tree in the backyard he warned me repeatedly wasn’t sturdy enough to limb. And sadly, my dad reassuring me in his firm and gentle way, while calling me his little Sprite as he kissed my boo-boos, wasn’t going to help my current situation at all. 
              This boo-boo was big-time. 
              This boo-boo was life-changing. 
              This boo-boo was anything but a good story waiting to be told.
              This boo-boo very well could be the end of me, the end of the rope where my patient parents had dangled precariously for years, and it very well could be the end of any kind of future I may have had. A future I was well on my way to letting a lifetime of bad decisions and even worse choices screw up. At barely twenty-two, bad decisions had sort of become my stock in trade and were as familiar to me as my own face. I was almost legendary, at this point, for putting all my trust in the absolutely wrong kind of people. If there was a wrong path to take, I was going to skip gleefully down that road and not look back until I ended up exactly in the kind of situation I found myself in at the moment. It wasn’t like this was even a new dead end; it was the same one I ran into over and over again. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get myself turned around, and the longer I was at this dead end, the darker and more wicked it became. 
              I knew better. I really did, even if there was a boatload of evidence contradicting that fact. 
              I wasn’t stupid, naïve, immature, or senseless. I might appear that way to anyone on the outside looking in, but I had my reasons for being a consummate failure and lifelong loser. All of those reasons had nothing to do with me not knowing better and everything to do with me knowing exactly what I deserved. 
              For a long time now I had been spiraling out of control, whirling, falling deep and deeper into a pit of really awful actions and consequences, each seemingly worse and more painful than the last. I also hadn’t made any kind of effort to try and pull myself out of it, so logically I knew the only place I was going to end up was right here, right at the lowest part of rock bottom. I never imagined the landing would be so jarring.
