My Review
First off I love this series so much.  This book is fantastic.  All has been quiet for the club since Kat and Dane’s wedding.  They took most of the Death Minions out and haven’t heard anything from them since until now.  The Death Minions have got a new leader, Adriel and his is determined to get back what they lost.  First the shoot up the Cherry, then there are a series of attacks on the Savage Angels.  Destiny is the lead act at the Cherry and Adriel has set his eyes on her.  She is attacked and then gets in a car accident on her way to tell Kade and Dane.  Kade and Zeke find her and call an ambulance.  When she wakes she has an attachment to Kade that wasn’t there before.  She has always thought he was attractive but never let him know before.  Kade has always had a thing for Destiny and finding her like that does something to him.  Someone is after his club and his girl.  He isn’t sure why Destiny is so attached to him now but he doesn’t mind it at all.  Kade, Zeke, and JJ have been nomad and are hoping to finally find a home with Dane and his MC.  Will they be able to figure out who is after the club before it’s too late?  Will this be the start of something between Kade and Destiny?  It was great getting to read about the MC again.  All the characters in this series are fantastic and I love getting to learn more about a few them with each new book.  I can’t wait for more books in this series.  Kathleen is a fantastic author and the world she creates with each book makes you wish you could be a part of it.  Adriel is a crazy and just wants revenge on the Savage Angels.  But does he have enough men to see this war through?  Dane and Kat’s relationship is talked about as well in the book and we are left with a bit of a cliff hanger.  I was torn with what happened with them during this book; which is just another reason I can’t wait for the next book.  I can’t say enough about this series or Kathleen Kelly.

I’m playing to win, and I’ll fight as dirty as I have to.
Release Date: March 31st, 2016


My father, Samuel Darcy, wrecked everything he touched—the business, our family, my mother. I knew if I didn't stop him he'd destroy it all. So I got down and dirty, stopped playing by the rules, and rolled in the mud right along with him. I bartered my soul, and in the end, I lost the one thing that I wanted most in this world.... my wife. Six months ago, Annalee gave me an ultimatum. Tell her about my secrets, or move out. I can’t confess to her that I’ve done shady business dealings to ruin my own father. In the end I let her go. But now? Now I can have her back. Taking down my dad, I learned that you don’t get what you want by following the rules. What I want now is my wife back. I want her back in my life and in my bed….I’m playing to win, and I’ll fight as dirty as I have to.

Taint (Snap Trilogy #2) Release Day

Urban decay examples of abandoned doorways

TAINT (The SNAP Trilogy #2) By Tara Dawn

"Captivating and enthralling - this series certainly will not let you go."
~ Bonny Capps, author of The Killer Series

"This suspense-packed thriller is one that fans of dark romance should not miss." ~ Courtney Lane, author of the Wicked Trinity Series

I'm so excited to get this installment into everyone's hands. It was a very emotional story for me to write. One that left me stranded at the top of a crazy ass rollercoaster. If you have yet to become a Snap Addict, don't run away. I've got a special going on for new readers. Thanks for checking out my newest release. I hope you enjoy it. ~Tara Dawn



I don't know who I am anymore, or what I'm becoming. Time doesn't exist in this godforsaken Hell I call my life. Every time I find a semblance of hope, it's bled away. Just like I'm bleeding away. The longer he believes he's won, the more I die inside. I may be nothing but a shell by the time this is over.

I failed her. I couldn't keep her safe. Now I may lose her completely. We're running against a clock controlled by a madman and we don't know when he plans to end his game. Every minute that passes without finding him makes the thought of killing him that much sweeter.

I didn't think it would be so easy. Pretty soon, my Snap will be on the streets and I'll be living the dream. That is, after I take Cash out. With him gone, I'll control not only the drug, but Hazel as well. If she listens, she will have a hell of a life. Right. Beside. Me.

*This series contains scenes of drug abuse, brutality, and rape. Reader discretion is advised.

Taint teaser #3

My hand slips from his and I make my way to the kitchen. I look at the bottle and back to my glass for a moment before putting the bottle to my lips. The wine fills my mouth, and I gulp it down hoping it will drown the emotions swirling within me. But the lump in my throat remains and grows larger with every pull off the bottle. The more I swallow, the more it feels like I'm choking. I lower the bottle, letting it thunk on the counter top, and try to breathe through the panic attack building inside of me.

 "I was infatuated with you."

The rumble of his voice makes me clutch the counter, my breath caught in my chest. As much as I want to know, I can't listen to it right now. It's all too much to take in when I'm still coming to terms with what Phil did to me.

"The longer I watched you, the more I was drawn to you," he continues, his voice getting closer. "You learn a lot about people when they don't know you're looking." My back warms as the heat of his body gets closer. He places his hands on the counter, trapping me between his arms. "Want to know what I learned about you?"

I stare down at the counter, thankfully hidden by the curtain of hair falling around my face, and shake my head. Cash's slight stubble on his jaw rubs against the side of my face as he leans closer, his chest grazing my back. His heart beats a rhythm that mine recognizes and tries to keep in tune with. I'd rather face Phil right now, because at least I know where I stand with him.

"You are selfless," he says, disregarding me. "You're happiest when those around you are happy. You have this need to help others without getting anything in return. But you're too prideful to let anyone in and help you when you need it most. You push people away by putting the focus back on them and deal with shit that you shouldn't have to deal with alone. And you do it all with the most beautiful smile I have every seen." His arms drape gently around me, and he rests his head against mine. "It's hard to find genuinely good people in the world," he whispers. "Trust me, I know. I've spent my life watching people selfishly choose their needs over others. And I turned into one of them."

Cash turns me around and cups the side of my face lifting it up to his. "I didn't want this to happen. I wanted to do my job and come home. But I couldn't stop thinking about you. I wanted what you gave everyone else freely. So I selfishly took it. I needed to see you smile at me like that and know I was the reason for it. And when you did, I couldn't get enough." He searches my eyes as he bares his heart to me. His mouth hovers over mine, bathing my lips in the warmth of his whiskey-scented breath with every word. "I wanted more. I thought I'd get it and walk away from you when this was over. But there's a piece of me that thinks I deserve this…" His lips brush against mine tormentingly as the shaky words fall from his lips. "That I deserve you."

My Review

This is the second book in this series and they must be read in order.  This book picks up right where the first one left off.  Grayson feels like he has failed again.  He couldn’t save his sister before and now he has failed to save Ellie as well.  He has threatened the brotherhood and is in hiding.  He is grieving Ellie and working on a way to avenge her.  What he doesn’t know is that Ellie isn’t really dead.  Ellie can’t wait to get back to Grayson and let him know that she isn’t dead.  The brotherhood is looking for both of them and they will never be able to be together.  They have help from Tuck.  Tuck is part of the brotherhood or was and he saved Ellie before she couldn’t be killed for real.  Between the three of them will they be able to find a way to get rid of the brotherhood for good?  I really liked this book.  Ellie and Grayson have a great love however outside forces keep them apart.  This book has lots of twists and turns.  Tuck has his own secrets you will discover when you read the book.  Ellie is so strong and has been through so much.  Grayson has killed just because imagine what he will do to for Ellie.  Tuck wants to help but I have a feeling that it’s not only for them but for himself as well.  The book ends on a cliff hanger just like the first one.  I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.  I love J.L. Beck and all her books.

Pursuing Carrie (Pretending #3) Blog Tour +Giveaway

Book: Pursuing Carrie (Pretending #3)
By: Jenn Hype
Genre: Contemporary Romance
**Can be read as a standalone, but backstory and character development from the first two books of the series may make this read more enjoyable.

Carrie is plain, quiet and doesn’t really give a shit what people think. Her priorities in life have absolutely nothing to do with dating or relationships. Quite the opposite, in fact, seeing as how a relationship is the absolute last thing she wants. Ever.
Joe is charming and charismatic, but the only thing he’s ever worked hard at in his adult life is his job. Outside of being a cop, he’s only interested in things that come easily, and that includes women. He gives the women he sleeps with respect, affection, and mind blowing orgasms - but that’s all he gives.
After being brought together by a mutual friend, Stacy, Joe and Carrie don’t exactly hit it off. They are the exact opposite of what the other looks for in a lover, yet they can’t fight the growing attraction that blossoms between them.
Under the pretense of wanting to be friends for the sake of Stacy, Joe sets out to win Carrie over, but his normal charms don’t work on her. And the more he tries to win her friendship, the more he realizes that friendship is not at all what he really wants.
Carrie’s willpower is strong, but it’s no match for Joe’s persistence, and despite her reluctance, Carrie finds herself falling for Joe in a way that she’s sure will cause irreparable damage in the end. Because nothing good ever comes out of hooking up with someone you care about, and why should this time be the exception?
Tainted pasts, crazy ex-lovers and flying dildos notwithstanding, Carrie and Joe find themselves venturing into unknown territory. It’s not easy, but it’s hot as hell, and luckily they are both too stubborn to give up easily on something that feels a lot more real than a short fling.
**Can be read as a standalone, but backstory and character development from the first two books of the series may make this read more enjoyable.

Pressing Adalyn - Free on i Books -  28th March – 1st April

3 years after graduating college, Adalyn still isn’t sure what to do with her life. After a traumatic event in college throws her life off course, she bounces between jobs and men aimlessly until deciding to move from her small town in Ohio to live with her college roommate, Stacy, in New York.
Being closed off and sarcastic has helped Adalyn cope with her past, but when Ian, Stacy’s sexy and successful friend, comes into the picture, her carefully constructed defense mechanisms start to fail.
Determined not to let Ian get under her skin, Adalyn fights hard to appear unaffected by Ian’s charm and devastating good looks. Undeterred and unconvinced by Adalyn’s attempts to feign indifference to him, Ian continues to push Adalyn out of her comfort zone, unwilling to give in to her efforts to push him away.
Slowly, Ian starts to break through to the core of who Adalyn really is, but both of their pasts threaten to destroy any semblance of a relationship that could ever exist between the two of them.

Playing Stacy
Stacy’s no stranger to trouble, considering that’s where her smart ass remarks usually land trouble. A drunken night out with her best friend Adalyn lands her in jail. Not that she’d done anything wrong, except for hit on the incredibly sexy cop who showed up to take a report from Adalyn who’d had her purse stolen. Chad, a no-nonsense officer who takes himself and his job very seriously, has no patience for Stacy’s shenanigans and over the top flirting. So he hauls her to jail to teach her a lesson, but didn’t expect it to cause Stacy to become a regular fixture in his life. Stacy ends up befriending Chad’s partner, Joe, who keeps her company after Chad dumps her in a holding cell for the night. Joe and Stacy hit it off right away, resulting in Stacy always being around, no matter how much Chad tries to avoid her. The constant bickering and sarcastic insults only heighten the sexual tension between Chad and Stacy, and Chad’s ability to control his emotions and actions becomes increasingly difficult. A low scale war is declared between them, but their actions continue to both hurt each other while simultaneously pulling them together. When the fighting leads to literal bloodshed, they begin to wonder if they both should surrender before the war destroys them both.
