*Blogtober day 2*Lead Security

Title: Lead Security
Series: Rogue Security & Investigation #3
Author: Evan Grace
Genre: Security Romance
Release Date: October 2, 2018

 

I’ve spent the last several years building my company, having zero time for a social life. I preferred it that way. After the mess my ex-wife left me with, I have no interest in anything remotely close to a relationship.
Until I meet my daughter’s new next-door neighbor.
Harley is kind, beautiful, and she’s also an erotic romance writer. To any man, she’s the perfect package. To a gun-shy man like me, she’s a one-way road to disaster.
Unfortunately for me, my daughter’s newfound friendship with Harley means I get to see more of her.
And the more I see her, the more I want her.
But my instincts are telling me there’s a danger lurking around her, following her, waiting for the right moment to strike. And the closer I get, the more I realize there’s only one way I’ll allow any threat to get near her…
and that’s over my dead body.

 

 

A Midwesterner and self-proclaimed nerd, Evan has been an avid reader most of her life, but five years ago got bit by the writing bug, and it quickly became her addiction, passion and therapy. When the voices in her head give it a rest, she can always be found with her e-reader in her hand. Some of her favorites include, Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Madeline Sheehan and Jamie Mcguire. Evan finds a lot of her inspiration in music, so if you see her wearing her headphones you know she means business and is in the zone.
During the day Evan works for a large homecare agency and at night she’s superwoman. She’s a wife to Jim and a mom to Ethan and Evan, a cook, a tutor, a friend and a writer. How does she do it? She’ll never tell.

How to Kill a Rock Star

How To Kill A Rockstar By Tiffanie Debartolo

Published September 1st 2005

Written in her wonderfully honest, edgy, passionate and often hilarious voice, Tiffanie DeBartolo tells the story of Eliza Caelum, a young music journalist, and Paul Hudson, a talented songwriter and lead singer of the band Bananafish. Eliza’s reverence for rock is equaled only by Paul’s, and the two fall wildly in love.

When Bananafish is signed by a big corporate label, and Paul is on his way to becoming a major rock star, Eliza must make a heartbreaking decision that leads to Paul’s sudden disappearance and a surprise knock-your-socks-off ending.

Book Blogger Test – Tag

Hey, I love all these new book blogger tags.  I was having a little look around and came across Hammock of Books, who had done this tag and wanted to give it a go, all for fun….

1. What are your three bookish pet peeves?

  • Books that take FOREVER to get to the main plot.  Nothing worse than reading about 50% and still not reached the point of the story.
  • Female characters that always need rescuing, or fall in love with a man who obviously treats her bad.
  • Cliffhangers where there is no second book…… This happens a lot and I am left hanging, I do not like not knowing what happens next.

Insta2. Name a perfect reading spot.

My spot on the sofa, snuggle up with a blanket curled up.

3. Give three reader confessions.

  • skimming through parts that bore me ( I am not the only one surely).
  • Reading certain chapters I loved in old books I have read.
  • I have dog eared some books in my past, or ruined my book in the rain…. BOOK MURDER I know.

4. When was the last time you cried during a book?

I honestly do not remember.  I remember the first time I cried during a book and that was reading P.S I love you.
PS, I Love You

5. Number of books on your bedside table? 

Ummm does my Kindle count I have 8 books on my kindle waiting to be read….. my bedside table consists of baby stuff recently I used to have 3 physical books on there.

6. Favorite reading snack?

Not really a snack but I will always have a hot chocolate with me.

7. What are three books you’d recommend to anyone?

Angels Blood (1st in the series) by Nalini Singh.
Bared to you (1st in series) by Sylvia Day.
A Bargain in Silver (1st in series) by Josie Jaffrey.

Noticed a theme here…. I love series.

8. Provide a picture of your bookshelves.

If only I had all my books from childhood, and hard copies of the books I have read on my kindle…. I would half half a room full.
On the top shelf on the left there are two rows of books for the house of night series.  This series is still going on, but I gave up.  I found they lost their flare and it went on way too long.  P.S The Kenny Dalglish is Craig’s book not mine.
As I have got older my books involved a lot of romance and fantasy.
There are 4 series of Fantasy, multiple books from Sylvia Day all romance, a few mystery on the bottom shelf.
Can you tell I love owls.  The two picture frames are Craig and I when we were young 😛 and a photo of my scan at 18 weeks when we found out we were having a boy :).

My bookshelf.jpg

9. How much do books mean to you in three words?

My dream world.

10. Biggest reading secret?

Not really a secret  but I prefer Romantic fantasy based books.  My first series like this was Twilight, followed by Nalini Singh’s series Guild Hunter.

I tag…  Anybody that wants to do this for fun 🙂

Goodreads Review – “This book made me laugh, cry, cringe, and sit on the edge of my seat. If you like romance books with dirty sex and a bit of mystery, then this is the book for you.”


Goodreads Review – “I have to say that I absolutely loved this book.”


Goodreads Review – “I honestly hope this author never suffers with writer’s block. Her ideas and the conversation between these men are awesome.”

  
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
