Just an Illusion—Unplugged tells Sawyer’s story. Every thought, every feeling, are yours for the taking. Are you ready?

✯✯5 Sawyer Filled Stars!!!✯✯

Holy smokes! Dee Kelly had me hooked lime and sinker from the very first page from the very first book of this incredible series. Since then I’ve been Team Sawyer 110%. But, after reading this my % of how much I’m team Sawyer went up double. I didn’t think that could happen. But, Dee pulled it off. 

I’m usually not one for reading a series and picking up the next book that’s told in the POV of somebody else. But, this one was so much better then I ever could’ve imagined. We get the major storyline from Sawyer POV and we also get things we never knew even happened. 

We all know that both Sawyer and Noah had both fallen and been played by that evil women Marilyn. But, we get it from Sawyer and my hatred for her escalated higher then I thought possible. 

I’m not going to give you a play by play. Even if you read the previous books you might be thinking I’m not missing anything. Well, YOU ARE!! What you’re thinking. I dunno. How about a Sawyer and Belle BFF thing going on. All joking aside their relationship and all their exchanges were my all time FAVORITE parts of this story. 

We know Sawyer and Noah are twins and the rest of the band they all see themselves as family. But, you really feel it reading thru Sawyer’s eyes. 

Noah. Oh Noah. He’s been under my skin since book one. I always felt he was rushing things with Mel and wanted things his way. Yes, that’s still the same. But, we see a different side to him. The side his brother, his twin, his other half saw him. How he was scared to loose her. How he was scared to loose Sawyer because of him and Mel. Sawyer refused to loose his brother bc of a girl. He needed his brother. But, Sawyer also needed Mel in his life in order to survive. Sawyer would rather have her as a friend if he couldn’t have her the way Noah did, then risk loosing her at all. 


Dee wrote this book beautifully. She gave you a full book from Sawyer POV without retelling the entire story over again. No, you got few key pieces again just differently and an entirely new story as well. I’m promising you the wait was so completely worth it!! I know the next parts gunna be more of the harder emotional part. But, I’ll have my tissues on standby and I’m all ready for it!

Excerpt

My stomach is queasy. Between the blood, alcohol consumption, and general stress of the day, I’m wiped. As soon as Dr. Martin leaves, I take the seat next to Mel and hold her hand.
“Hey, Princess, you lucked out tonight. Mac is good at his job, but never in a million years did I imagine we’d need him to take care of something like this. That man deserves a raise, a vacation to a tropical land, a new house, car, whatever he wants. Nothing in the world is more precious than having you and Noah safe and here with us.”
She looks so peaceful; you’d never know she’s been to hell and back tonight. As I look at her, my mind floods with memories from the last few months. It’s crazy to think she’s only been in our lives for four months. I’m pretty sure I fell in love with her the second she called me a dick. Fire flared in her eyes, but her cheeks blushed the perfect shade of pink. My cock was instantly hard. She was the perfect blend of feisty and humble.
Later that night, when she walked into my bathroom, it seemed like the fates had aligned and brought her to me. I was a goner the second her lips crashed against mine. And when she turned me down, fuck … I felt like an addict being denied his high.
That was the beginning of the end for me. I couldn’t shake the way her lips tasted against mine, or how her body heated with my touch. All night long, her sultry moans reverberated through my body. I’d only had a small taste of her, but I wanted more— so much more.
“Noah,” she mutters, still sleeping.
Noah. It all comes back to him. Noah was enraptured by her. That was something new; I’d never seen him like that before. As much as it pained me to do so, I stepped back for him. Little did I know how intense my feelings for her would become and how large of a wedge she was going to drive between the two of us. I thought I’d been doing good the past few weeks. Just like any addiction, I was beating it. Until Sara held that gun to her head. I realized then I’ve been fooling myself. I love her more now than ever before.
“Noah,” she calls out again, a bit more coherent this time. His name on her lips is just the reminder I need to set me straight. It’s like Wyatt said, she made her choice. No matter how much it hurts, she picked him, and I’m going to respect that. I just need to figure out how.

Excerpt

After removing my shoes and putting my clothes in the hamper, I hop under the heated spray and try clearing my mind. It’s no use; I’m still picturing the glimmer of lust in Mel’s eyes from when I told her I wanted to put her over my knee. I want to smack that tight ass of hers until it’s pink and she’s begging me to fuck her.
Unlike earlier today, my cock is rock hard. My soaped-up fingers circle the tip of my dick, my pre-cum adding to the slickness. With my head against the tile wall, I work myself to the point of no return. Imagining Amelia’s pretty, pouty lips circling my dick and swallowing me down her throat is my undoing. My body trembles with the aftershocks of one of the best orgasms I’ve ever had. Getting myself off shouldn’t feel that good, but damn … it was like she was right here with me.
How am I letting this girl I don’t even know get under my skin? She’s bitchy, sarcastic, and undeniably sexy in the most obscure way. She’s not one iota my type, yet I can’t get her out of my head. I just need to sleep with her and get it out of my system. She seems like the kind of woman who can handle a one-night stand. And since she doesn’t like me or my band, I won’t have to worry about her turning into a clinger.
I’ve just wrapped my towel around my waist and cracked the bathroom door when I hear someone step into my room. No one comes in without knocking, ever. If it’s not her, it’s Belle, but one of them is about to get a surprise.
Rapidly flipping the light off, I open the door and pull the unsuspecting girl inside. “What the fuck?” she gasps.
It’s her.
“Fucking hell, Princess,” I growl. The room is dark and steamy, and before she can tell me to shove my Princess comment where the sun doesn’t shine, my mouth crashes against hers. As I wrap an arm around her waist and pull her closer, I weave the fingers of my free hand through her hair. Her scent is intoxicating, and as I slide my tongue across her lips, she opens to me. My heart pounds in my chest as our tongues meet for the first time. Her mouth tastes like heaven, but the two of us together could easily burn a path straight to hell.
Her body fits perfectly against mine, and as our tongues duel for control, she wraps her arms around me and releases her soft cries of pleasure against my mouth.
If another woman had ever kissed me like this, I would have given up my bachelorhood a long time ago.
She tugs my lip ring with her teeth, and it sends a jolt straight to my cock. I’m moaning just as much as she is, and when her body begins grinding against my dick, I slide my hand down her tight little ass, bringing us even closer together. I want her doggy style on my bed, and the thought alone practically takes me to my knees. Her gasp brings me back to the present as she abruptly pushes me away.
What the fuck?
“We can’t.” Her voice is a breathless whisper.
“Oh, Princess,” I say, placing her hand on my dick, “I’m pretty sure we can.”
She laughs, and it’s like music for my soul. With a laugh like that, I have to see her smile, so I flip on the light and she blinks rapidly. Oops, guess I didn’t exactly think that through, but oh well, it’s worth it because she’s still smiling and it looks damn good on her. Once her eyes focus, she takes me in. There isn’t an inch of my body her gaze doesn’t roam across. I know she said no, but when she licks her lips and bites down on her bottom lip, I know it’s her mind talking over her sex drive.
When her eyes land on my chest, the rapid rise and fall of hers becomes noticeable. This girl has a thing for my piercings. I’m tempted to drop my towel, if for no other reason than to see her lick those luscious lips of hers again. Too bad, she’s starting to come to her senses, I was enjoying the pheromone high between us.
With a regretful look, she speaks, “I’m sorry, but I can’t do this.”
“Your body says otherwise,” I counter, curious as hell to see how this is going to play out.
“Maybe it does, but I don’t think with my body anymore, I think with my mind. We can’t do this if I’m coming on tour with you.”
So she made her decision. All right, I’ll play her game … for now. I’ll deal with a temporary disappointment as long as I know I’ve got access to her for the next year and a half. I’ll talk to Noah about her tonight and tell him how I feel because if there’s one thing I know as easily as my own name, it’s that me and Princess are meant to be fuck buddies.
“All right. I’ve never had a woman turn me down before. I’m not sure I like it. It’s your call, Princess. You know where to find me if you change your mind.”

Stefanie's Rating
 ✯✯5 Cruz Filled Stars!!!✯✯ 


HJ Bellus continues to prove why she’s becoming one of my new fav authors. I only recently found her why she co-wrote a few books. This is her second book she strictly wrote. I legit no joke read this in one sitting, less then 5 hours and I was done. 

Layla grew up with her dad and her abuela (grandma) after her mother walked out on them. Layla’s father is an MMA fighter and she grew up with him coming home covered in bruises. Layla loves her father more then anything but she hates fighting and fighters aren’t her favorite people. 

Layla’s a traveling ER nurse and she’s finally going home to visit her father and abuela after being gone for sometime. She’s looking forward to her abuela’s tamales but that’s not what she walked into. Her abuela passed out and she made it to the hospital just in time to say goodbye. When she falls down two strong arms catch her before she falls and she instantly feels safe. Cruz should be everything that Layla can’t stand. But, there’s such an instant connection between them that it doesn’t even matter that he’s a fighter. 

Cruz is an MMA fighter whose known as The Notorious Rumbler is as bad ass as they sound. He’s hoping this is the year he gets to Las Vegas and get the championship. Cruz lost his father and sold his gym. It’s how he ended up at Diablo’s Thrown, (Layla’s dads gym). Their dads were friends and he knew with his dad gone he’s the right guy to help him. 

Cruz knows exactly how Layla is feeling. Cruz will do anything to be there for Layla. The more time they spend together the more they talk. Layla realizes Cruz has been where she’s at now with the loss of her abuela. Once Cruz gets his hands on Layla he never plans on letting her go.  She’s all his and he plans on it staying that way. Until somebody from each of their pasts comes back and plan on making issues for them. 

Both Layla and Cruz were fighting demons from their pasts and because of that they both had trust issues. Granted Layla’s trust issues were worse then his. But, if I had an MMA fighter boyfriend that had been around the block as much as he had I’d prob be crazy too lol.  

Cruz might’ve been an MMA fighter. But, when he’s not in the ring he’s a gentleman and the perfect man. Layla might not put up with anything. But, she’s the perfect match for Cruz. 

I loved this story and was so man when I finished it lol. There was so much going on in it. From emotional, to full of suspense and heart wrenching. It had it all. I’m looking forward to the next book in what’s starting off as an awesome series.

✯Release Review✯The Book Splash Horror Story by Cassia Brightmore



The Book Splash Horror Story by: Cassia Brightmore Author
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: February 9, 2018
Cover Design: Just Write Creations


Vacationing with a splash of blood…

Rennie Laval was about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. A virgin cruiser, what better way to pop her cherry than onboard the luxurious Norwegian. Set to sail to the sunny Caribbean on a week long vacation, her only expectation was to soak up the warm sun, and spectacular sights, all while consuming frothy umbrella drinks.

Travelling solo didn’t faze her, not when she would be a part of a group of cruisers, known fondly as “Book Splashers.” A unique author signing event at sea, getting the chance to attend was a dream come true for an avid reader like Rennie. The large group of more than three hundred authors, readers, photographers, models had welcomed her with open arms. The hosts, Harper Sloan and Felicia Lynn, reassuring her she’d never be left on her own.

Duke Kincaid was fed up with life. After catching his fiancee in bed with his best friend, he spontaneously booked himself on a cruise, needing to get away from their betrayal. A Caribbean vacation was just the escape he needed. Colliding with another solo traveller while boarding, a beautiful brunette, seemed like fate. A little fling on the open waters would definitely go a long way to wiping out unwanted memories.

While he and Rennie grow closer on and off board the ship, they’re both flung headfirst into a nightmare when members of the Book Splash start showing up dead. The first tragic death seemed like an accident, but when the body count rises higher than imaginable, and the deaths become more gruesome, it’s clear that a sinister force is stalking the ship, focused on the members of their group.

Trapped in the middle of the ocean.
Ensnared in a deadly game of kill or be killed.
What would you do in order to ensure your own survival?

For Rennie, Duke and the Book Splashers, their dream vacation may be their last.


✯4 Bloody Twisted  Stars!!

Holy mother jeez!! Cassia is known for her dark, twisted, bloody, mind blowing reads. This book was no different. The only thing different is she based both the story and characters off the annual cruise the indie book world goes on every year.

Rennie's a book lover and has become friendly with the authors and bloggers in the Indie community. The past few years the community goes on an annual cruise they've called Book Splash. This year Rennie has decided she's not going to enjoy the cruise by the pictures posted on Facebook. Nope!! This time she's going and she'll finally get to meet the people she feels she's known forever and finally go on a cruise.

Rennie meets a sexy tall man named Duke and she instantly wants to punch him. She learns that he's actually going on the same cruise ship as her. Even though he originally rubbed her the wrong way and she didn't like him, she cant help but be attracted to him. Rennie meets the other Book Splashers and the all just have a great time. Rennie continues running into Duke and the more time they spend together the more she likes him. If only things were that easy where she can enjoy her cruise with her fellow book friends and spend time to get to know Duke more. 

Duke is a business owner and works a bunch. When he walks in on his fiancĂ© in bed with his best friend. After he gets into a fit with his best friend Duke decides he  needs to just go away. He finds the first cruise ship thats leaving and books his ticket. Duke was expecting to just go and get away. 

Duke wasn't expecting to meet Rennie and be attracted to her the way he is or be on a cruise with a group of authors, readers and bloggers who call themselves "Book Splashers".  The woman stare and gawk at him. Apparently he's a hit with them. So much so that they're trying to get him on their book covers LOL. But, before the cruise really gets into full effect things change for the worse. People in the book community start getting killed. The only thing on Duke's mind is to keep Rennie save. Duke didn't care what he had to do he was going to keep her safe!

I read this in 2 sittings. In true typical Cassia fashion she kept you on your toes. I never knew what was next. At one point I thought I knew who the killer was and I was mad bc I liked this person. But, I'm an idiot, bc its Cassia and she's everything but predictable. I was not expecting who the psycho killer was. Cassia needs to start writing faster bc I'm ready for her next killer book! I've never been on a cruise before and always wanted too. But, after reading this I'm not sure I want to go on a cruise. Thanks for that Cassia ARGH LOL
