The Man I Need by Shanora Williams Blog Tour


There are things that women want, and things that women need.
I know deep down, with every fiber in my body, that I need Mr. Ward.

He started out as my landscape designer, but became so much more.
Now, my life is on the line while living with the devil himself. I have been torn down and broken, and I don’t think I can take anymore.

The man I need was never the one I married.
No, the man I need is the one I was never supposed to have. He’s the one who showed me gentleness, kindness, and true love.

Ward would put up a fight for me at any cost.
I know for a fact, I could be so much happier with him…

But when I come face-to-face with reality, I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to risk it all for someone I’ve just met, even if it seems like Mr. Ward and I are a match made in heaven.

***This is the second, and final book in the Ward Duet. You must read The Man I Can't Have before reading The Man I Need.***

The Man I Need is the second and final book in the Ward Duet. It shouldn't be read as a standalone. To get the full effect of the storyline of the duet it should be read after reading The Man I Can't Have. If you have issues reading about abuse and rape, this book is not for you.

The Man I Need picks up right where The Man I Can't Have left off. Marcel and Gabby have had their affair, Kyle has found out about it and is showing his true colors. Gabby sees a side of Kyle that she has only seen once before. He promised he wouldn't hit her again, so she stayed. When he found out about Marcel and Gabby's affair he's thrown into a blind rage. Gabby does what she needs to do to get out of the situation, all the while looking over her shoulder.

Marcel has fallen in love with Gabby. He'd do anything to help her leave her abusive husband. Shanora Williams did a fantastic job with this duet. She was able to give you the rough, gritty parts but made you fall in love with the sweet, sexy scenes. I loved seeing the sweet side of Marcel and the chemistry that was so hot between him and Gabby.

Take Me Down by Carly Phillips Blog Tour


Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.

Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.

Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys… But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.

Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel… everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.

“I like the dreamy look on your face.”

“It isn’t often I’m thrown into a good memory of my mom,” he admitted.

More often than not he thought about the bitter ones of his dad and his lack of attention, his many wives, and losing the one parent who loved him unconditionally.

“Do you know the key ingredient that differentiates a Snickerdoodle from a sugar cookie?” she asked.

He shook his head. “Can’t say that I do.” That memory escaped him.

“Cream of Tartar. It’s a leavening agent that gives the cookie its signature tangy flavor and chewy texture.”

“She made them every Christmas,” he said, hearing his own wistful tone. “We left them out for Santa.”

Emily smiled at his memory. “I’ll make them for you one day if –“ She shook her head.

If you’re still here went unsaid.

“Can I take this to mean you’re not mad at me anymore?” he asked, leaning in on one arm.

She poured the brownie mix into the pan and sighed. “I was never mad at you. At first I was just scared to death. Then I was frustrated with dad and the situation. You being here, supporting his dream doesn’t help. But I’m not angry at you.”

The heaviness in his chest eased. But he was going to throw her an even more difficult question. He wasn’t sure if he expected an answer and given he didn’t know if he could answer in return, it wasn’t exactly fair.

“Okay then, good. What about before we came back? Are you still running from what we felt?”

She’d stuck a chocolate covered finger into her mouth and at the question, her eyes opened wide. The question had been bad timing on his part because his dick hardened at the sight of that finger in her mouth. He wanted her lips wrapped around his cock.

But, they had important things to discuss. “Running?” she asked on a squeak.

He pushed himself to standing and strode around the island, coming up to her and pushing her back against the counter. “Running,” he confirmed. “Not physically but emotionally.”

“I can’t let myself get too attached to you, Parker. You’re leaving. Sooner not later. Just because we don’t discuss it doesn’t make it not true. I need to protect myself.”

Her words sliced through him because they were true. Because he hated them. Because she was right and he didn’t want her to be. So he did the only thing he could do in the moment.

“But we have now.”

This is Parker's story. While you don't need to read the previous books in order to understand what's going on, it does give Parker's brother more context.

Parker is okay with his life. He likes working with his family and despite having some bumps in his road, is feeling pretty good about where he is. When his grump of a brother asks him for a favor, Parker is sent to Montana to scout resorts for a corporate retreat. What he finds instead, is a feisty woman and a great father figure.

I really liked Emily. Despite her nature to not trust, once she makes up her mind about something, she sticks to it. She was strong when she needed to be, but also vulnerable. It helped to make her more relatable. I loved her dad. He was hilarious and reminded me of my grandpa. Emily has had a bad experience with men and therefore is immediately ill at ease with Parker and his slick, city ways.

Watching these two dance around each other and figure out who they are together was fun. They were witty, sensitive, and really brought out the best in each other. Both Parker and Emily will have to make some huge life decisions and find out if they can truly make the most out of their situation. I am looking forward to more books.

This is the second book in the series – and I would say that you would benefit from reading these books in order to understand the background to the Knight brothers behaviour and rationale.

In this installment, Parker, the least business interested brother, gets his story told in full. We know that he is a reluctant part of the business, but he is loyal to his brothers, and realises that Ethan, who always behaved like a father to him, needs him to step up. So even though he does not want to go and view ski chalets in Montana for a company retreat, he does. A car problem leads to him staying in a rather run down B&B and meeting the woman who will change his life forever.

Emily has left a terrible marriage to a city slicker type, and is back home with her dad, still grieving the death of her mother. She is busy baking for her best friend's coffee shop and trying to persuade her dad to move to Florida. So when the Parker steps into the B&B, she is in total denial of the chemistry which is evident from that very minute. We are the very happy audience, watching the crazy but inevitable unfold before us. She is a lovely person, who has worked out how she let life get away from her and intends to never lose her independence again. Given how important Parker values being in control, you can only imagine the issues this causes.

I love how both Parker and Emily both have a need to reconcile their needs and wants to give them a chance at a future. Living half a country away is the least of their issues... which is a bit of a problem! They are both such lovely people, that one can only wish they sort it out sooner than later.

Lovely addition to the series – and wow, Ethan getting his happily ever after in the next book... that is going to be one tough nut to crack but I have little doubt that Phillips has the very person lined up and ready to go the distance.


Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Neither Parker nor Emily were looking for love. Each is just trying to hold their families together and survive life. Parker's life hasn't been easy, losing his mom at an early age and then his father virtually abandoning his children after her death – to the tragic automobile accident that killed his fiancée and his skiing career.

Emily has lived the dream, leaving small town Colorado for the big city living of Chicago where she met who she thought was the man of her dreams. Turns out, he wanted to mold her into the woman he wanted her to be rather than love the woman she was. Returning to her hometown to take care of her dying mother, she left the city, the job, and her husband.

Now she just wants to be herself, take care of her father, and figure out how to make her dreams come true. Parker, on the other hand, is just in Colorado to do a job for his brother. He's not looking for love, his guilt is still weighing him down.

I really enjoyed this installment and can't wait for Ethan's book.

Larisa knows that she's a great cop. But being the only woman in her crew, it sometimes makes her think. With the death of her father so recent, Larisa knows that she just needs to plow ahead. When she's given the assignment to go undercover, she jumps at it... until she finds out that she'll have a babysitter in the form of her dad's hot partner. Nicolas has been the star in some of her erotic dreams since she was younger. But the last thing she wants is him following her around and making her job harder.

The chemistry between Larisa and Nicolas was just okay for me. While I found that their history helped in their "relationship," it also felt somewhat forced. I wanted a more natural flow to their relationship.

Nicolas wants to keep his heart hidden and Larisa thinks that a one off will do the trick. Can either of them figure out that they are what they need? I wish this was slightly longer – it felt cut off at the end and I wanted more of the couple and their story. It will be interesting to see what happens next.



SAMARA KING is the author of sexy contemporary romance and romantic suspense. Writing romance has been woven into Samara's world since her days of sneaking to the back of the library in grade school... of course, at some point, there was studying (usually after the end of a chapter.) When not dreaming up her latest hero who may or may not resemble the likes of Morris Chestnut, Channing Tatum or the latest MUST-HAVE-HIM archetype, Samara can be found jamming out to music, sipping on her favorite drink: cinnamon coffee or if the mood calls for it – because let's get real – often life requires Moscato while watching This Is Us, shopping for plants she cannot kill, and dancing.

Currently, she writes for multiple publishers, including her own imprint Crave. Previously, Samara cohosted SoundNOff, a poetic format for poets and spoken word artists and hosted InCharacterN10, a former showcase for authors on Blogtalkradio.com/samaraking. Her well-received poetry collection, The Ebony Kryptonite, preceded her poetic EP, Stripped Barefoot, a sultry mix of poetry and spoken word, which went on to reach #20 in Chicago’s Top 40 on Reverbnation in September 2013.

Samara resides in the Midwest, mixing city life with her family... and characters who never sleep.

Red Fish, Dead Fish by Amy Lane Audiobook Review


They must work together to stop a psychopath—and save each other.

Two months ago Jackson Rivers got shot while trying to save Ellery Cramer’s life. Not only is Jackson still suffering from his wounds, the triggerman remains at large—and the body count is mounting.

Jackson and Ellery have been trying to track down Tim Owens since Jackson got out of the hospital, but Owens’s time as a member of the department makes the DA reluctant to turn over any stones. When Owens starts going after people Jackson knows, Ellery’s instincts hit red alert. Hurt in a scuffle with drug-dealing squatters and trying damned hard not to grieve for a childhood spent in hell, Jackson is weak and vulnerable when Owens strikes.

Jackson gets away, but the fallout from the encounter might kill him. It’s not doing Ellery any favors either. When a police detective is abducted—and Jackson and Ellery hold the key to finding her—Ellery finds out exactly what he’s made of. He’s not the corporate shark who believes in winning at all costs; he’s the frightened lover trying to keep the man he cares for from self-destructing in his own valor.

I’m currently kicking myself for not listening to Red Fish, Dead Fish sooner. Honestly, with as much as I loved Fish out of Water, I’m still uncertain as to how it took me so long to cue up its sequel. Between the continuation of Jackson and Ellery’s story and Greg Tremblay back as narrator, it boggles my mind. I can only assume that I was subconsciously worried – needlessly and unnecessarily – that I wouldn’t love book two as much as I loved book one. How utterly silly of me.

Picking up two months after the end of book one, Red Fish, Dead Fish has Jackson just getting back to work… well, chomping at the bit to get back to work full-time after his part-time return didn’t go as well as planned (and thanks for the bonus chapter that showed just how that went down). On par with the aggressively independent man we met in Fish out of Water, Jackson is bordering on resentful that those close to him are trying to keep him from doing for himself. Ellery, Jade, and Mike walk a fine line trying to support Jackson while trying to keep him from overdoing it and ending up back in the hospital, AGAIN! Good intentions be damned, Jackson Rivers has a home still being renovated, meth dealers to roust from said home, and a serial killer to catch, and he’s going to do it all or die trying. Unfortunately for all involved, dying trying isn’t off the table. While Jackson might be sharing some of Billy Bob’s nine lives, there are some situations when even a tomcat can’t land on his feet. And that’s exactly what has Ellery so scared. I have to say that Lane did a fabulous job of keeping Ellery and Jackson true to the characters we met in book one. While there is definitely some character growth in Jackson, it occurs in kicks and starts, stunted just like the man; and the level of emotional and physical trauma Jackson endures this time around just adds to the complications and obstacles he has to overcome. Jackson’s sense of recklessness comes off like a bit of a death wish, but it’s the objective observation of Ellery’s mother that makes it easier to understand why Jackson seems so out of control – and had me nearly crying for the little boy Jackson once was. If it weren’t for the fact that Ellery is as stubborn as Jackson is reckless, I don’t know that the showdown with the serial killer would have felt nearly as believable, but it was absolutely perfect for my favorite crime-fighting couple. And the threat to Taylor’s client… WOW! The fact that I get to dive right into the next book is the only thing that makes my waiting to listen to Red Fish, Dead Fish worth it.

It’s no secret that Greg Tremblay is my favorite narrator, so there’s not a lot I haven’t already said about his talent in my previous reviews. What was new for me was just how CREEPY he was able to make the serial killer’s voice. I love the amount of emotion he taps into when narrating Ellery and Jackson, but the whiplash level of crazy that Owens displayed was superbly done. I can’t forget the damaged vocal cords voice of Tess Dakin because that had to hurt to perform, but it was an excellent touch. And I love the way he’s able to capture Taylor’s cool aloofness and warm amusement – the woman is a bit of a contradiction at times and Tremblay conveys that so well. The accompanying stories were a delight because I’ve recently read Racing for the Sun and was amazed by the voices Tremblay created for Ace, Sonny, Jai, and Alba. It was such a treat that left me grinning and even more enamored with his narration. Being as I don’t have to say goodbye yet, I’m off to listen to A Few Good Fish.

This is the second in the series, but the first that I have read - the leads in book one feature big here, so I think it would be a good idea to read them in order. That said, it was a good story in its own right.

I enjoy kitchen-based stories, and there were elements of this which were very enjoyable, but also some which I understood from a plot basis, but they felt slightly out of place in the restaurant context. I particularly disliked the Vegas solution as being too convenient.

The romance starts as a deep dislike, due in no small part to a miscommunication, but once Bobby decides that he doesn't like the person he is becoming, the situation improves. There is some chemistry, but these two are sizzling, not burning things up. It is very sweet and gentle, which belies at least Cal's seemingly strident and somewhat fiery nature.

Overall this was a sweet read, which had some interesting insights into the opportunities of a TV chef and as a second book in the series, it sets up future possibilities.

Sydney is a corporate lawyer who has had a tough time attracting men who can satisfy her body and mind. When her friend pushes her to take a vacation, Sydney decides that it's the perfect time to feel out a one-night stand or a fling of some kind. What she doesn't expect is Josh.

Josh knows what he doesn't want. He doesn't want to die young like his dad. He wants someone to come home to, to love and cherish. But with his pesky brothers hounding him, Josh knows he has to get out soon or drown.

When Josh and Sydney meet, there is instant chemistry. They play for a few nights and when their time is up, both think this is the end. However, fate had something else in store for them.

I wish this book had a more realistic first encounter. There is no way that a seasoned dom would play as hard as they did that first night. While their tryst was hot, it was not very realistic in my mind. However, I did like that they liked more than just the physical aspect of their attraction. Their minds melded as well. I wanted more from the story post-sexual encounter. I thought that they would have a great, longer story and really enjoyed where this one went, despite the short length.
