A book where the romance is just as dangerous as the crime….
FBI Agent Devon Mitchell is trying everything he can to move on with his life. 

Except he can’t.

After losing the one person he loved more than life itself, he struggles to carry on with the guilt and burden of letting her go. When a new assignment in his old hometown lands on his desk, he can’t help but feel drawn to it.

Drawn to her...

But this isn't a case he was assigned, but a secret undercover mission that could ruin his career if his cover is blown.

Tegan Anderson wishes for a normal life. Pushing her way through college, she finds herself in dead end relationship number three—except this time, the guy is into something far more dangerous than your usual twenty-three-year-old is involved in. 

Drugs, dirty money, and casino debts are just a few things her ex has found himself wrapped up in.

When the people he owes money come looking for him, she finds herself in a situation that could be the difference between life and death. 

With the odds stacked against them, and a herd of angry men after them, can Devon and Tegan survive the mayhem that is about to ensue? Can they overcome the past or will it shatter both of them?

Sometimes, love isn’t enough, but could theirs be truly invincible?

Release Day Blitz for Bad Blood by Amity Cross @givemebooksblog @amitycross

Title: Bad Blood
Series: Royal Blood #2
Author: Amity Cross
 Release Date: April 7, 2015


A killer without a master.
A monster without a leash.

Xavier “X” Blood is a contract killer. Cold, calculating, devoid of feeling.

He knows the best way to drive the life from another human beings eyes, but what he doesn’t bargain on is wanting to save a life he’s meant to take.

Mercy Reid was good at running from her demons. That was until she met X and her life was thrown into chaos.

Mercy finally has him on her side…and in her bed, but it’s at a cost far greater than she could’ve anticipated.

On the run, they must learn to trust one another beyond their burgeoning love if they want to get through the coming chaos. Revenge, truth, lies...heartache...insanity. All of it threatening to drive them apart.

Mercy will do whatever it takes to avenge the horror that Sykes put her through. Anything. Even if she has to drown the last of her soul in the bad blood that threatens to destroy the last thing she holds dearest in her heart.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ Obsessed by books arc given in exchange for an honest review. ~*~

"She wanted revenge. I wanted her. I'd shaped her in my own image at her behest. A monster and his apprentice."

And oh boy is Mercy a fast learner! Picking straight up from where we were left dangling at the end of book one, Mercy and X are on the run. Unleashed from his ties to Royal Blood, his new master is unaware of the power she holds over him. Using his skills and talents X teaches Mercy to become detached, efficient and his equal on the killing fields. Their story takes them on a journey of self discovery and it is a time of metamorphosis for them individually and together. Seeking revenge for the death of her family Mercy never planned on falling in love. X having set himself free of Royal Blood's conditioning has to deal with the encroachment of feelings, memories and regaining his humanity in small fragments. Can this couple survive the cataclysmic changes that their decisions have wrought?

Of course there are other dangers to face...Sykes knows he is a hunted man and has put the wheels in motion. The chase leads them to Paris and Mercy learns more of the web she has been caught up in. Power, greed, human trafficking, pain and misery will it all be too much for her to handle? Whilst X trains and plans revenge he too is undergoing some changes, as the conditioning breaks he is left with memories and dreams, questions that he can't yet answer. They are both haunted by demons, existing in their own personal hells only surviving by their fierce connection. They are slaves to their pasts, controlled by their feelings for one another.

This ends with Mercy rite of passage...with her becoming X equal. But there is so much more to be told. Who is The Watchman, what has Vaughn got planned, what is Royal Blood's next move!?! The plot is twisty and dark. Tenderness is fleeting,X showing his love and commitment in violent acts that turn her on! The sex is seriously explosive and I can't wait to read more.

Five earth shattering stars.

Kelly Jamieson - Loving Maddie A To Z @KellyJamieson

Kelly Jamieson Loving Maddie From A To Z 4/7/2015
Loving MaddieBlurb: Award-winning photojournalist Zack Donovan is happy to be alive after being held captive by a band of rebels in Syria. He's not so happy to be on his way back to Chicago to recuperate with his college friends Maddie and Aidan, who are now a couple. The fear while being held prisoner was nothing compared to how he feels about facing the two people who unknowingly broke his heart seven years ago. Maddie and Aidan are deeply in love, but lately they feel something is missing for them. They'd do anything to make the other happy, but are struggling to figure out what that is. Those problems are set aside, however, when their best friend from college is taken hostage in Syria. After graduation, Maddie and Aidan were hurt by Zack's refusal to ever come home to visit, but he's still their friend and he has no family, so when he's finally free they insist he come stay with them to recover. Zack's a different man now. He's seen terrible things. He's come to terms with his sexuality and embraced his need to dominate. Maddie and Aidan would be shocked to know the kinds of things he likes to do. A guy like him will never have a relationship like theirs. But when Zack realizes he might be able to show Maddie and Aidan what they're missing, he faces a dilemma. Do something? Do nothing? Pretend everything's fine? Help them if he can? But will showing them what they're missing help save their relationship...or destroy it? add-to-goodreads-button31    

Maddie_teaser1 Excerpt:
Zack stared out the window of the Boeing 777 as the wheels touched down at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.
He was about to see Maddie and Aidan again. That should have filled him with dread. He’d been avoiding them for seven years. Now…he didn’t feel anything. After what he’d been through, he’d shut down. Over-the-top emotions had no place in his life. Hopes got crushed, fears got mocked. Hate made you bitter and love made you weak. He was just lucky to be alive. After the things he’d endured, seeing his two old friends, the ones he’d run from with a broken heart and never looked back, was really no big deal. Broken heart. He almost snorted out loud. Looking back now at his youthful misery, it seemed so…over the top. Whatever. Not that he was all eager to see them. He just…had nowhere else to go. Sure he did. There were a lot of places he could go. There was a whole world out there. He could go visit Kate in London, hanging out in her elegant flat. He could go see Jean-Marc in Paris and have some fun in the dungeon he’d introduced Zack to. He couldn’t go there. Who was he kidding? He was a mess. He’d lost so much weight his skin was hanging on his bones. He was having nightmares and flashbacks. Neither Kate nor Jean-Marc had offered him a place to stay. Maddie and Aidan had. Maddie’s emails pleading that he should come to them when he’d finally been released from hospital in Germany must have caught him at a weak moment. He found himself agreeing to come to Chicago and stay with them while he recovered. He couldn’t imagine showing up at Kate’s place in this kind of shape. She was a lovely woman, but probably not strong enough to deal with his shit. Jean-Marc…same thing. He didn’t want to do this to Aidan and Maddie either, but somehow he knew they were solid and strong enough to deal with this. His employer had made it quite clear that he wasn’t going to be working for a while. Six weeks of leave to “recuperate.” But they didn’t understand—he was fine. Well mostly. Hell. And what was he going to do for a six weeks? Jesus. If he wasn’t already whacked, he’d be really out of his mind after sitting around doing nothing for that long. The plane took forever to taxi to the terminal, then even longer to open the door and let people deplane. By the time he was able to rise from his seat, grab his bag from the overhead compartment and file off the plane, he was antsy and itchy. Maddie had insisted they’d pick him up at the airport. Were they waiting for him just inside this building? Was he going to be able to handle seeing them together…seeing them as lovers, not just friends? Were they going to freak out seeing him like this, after all this time? Somehow they’d kept his return under the radar. The media had been all over the story, a happy ending story this time compared to some recent events. He’d given a ton of interviews in Germany. He knew they wanted to cover it, the homecoming, the guy who’d survived—but he couldn’t handle that. He wanted to tell the stories—he didn’t want to be the story. He knew at some point he was going to have to face the press once home, ha, even though he was one of them. He just couldn’t do it right now. So the State Department and Stockton had managed to keep all the plans on the down low, as had Aidan and Maddie. He rubbed his face as he emerged into the terminal. He tugged a newsboy cap down over his eyes and kept his sunglasses on even in the terminal, in case someone recognized him. As if he was a fucking movie star, or something. He hated the media attention. He followed the swarm of people toward the baggage claim, his insides tightening up. Everything turned to a blur around him as he tried not to look for familiar faces in the crowd, all the noise around him becoming a muted roar. He focused on finding the carousel displaying his flight number, shoving his hands into the pockets of his new jeans. For some reason he didn’t want to see them first. “Zack!” He heard her voice behind him and stopped. His shoulders tightened, but he turned. Something inside him clamped down on his heart, squeezing it. He looked at Maddie nearly running at him, fuck, so gorgeous it made his throat ache. Her shiny brown hair was still long and straight, hanging below her shoulders. She used to wear her bangs thick and straight across her forehead, but now they were swept to one side. Her smile was as sweet as ever, her cheeks pink, her sapphire eyes shiny. Behind her was Aidan, striding fast, an intense look on his face. Aidan hadn’t changed at all. Maddie barreled at him, long legs bare in a pair of cut off denim shorts, flat sandals, a loose flowery top in pale grey with pink flowers flowing around her slender torso, tiny straps leaving arms and shoulders bare. Then she was nearly knocking him off balance, her arms going around his waist, her face planted in his chest. His lungs burned and his throat closed up. His arms closed around her helplessly and he squeezed his eyes shut against the stinging he felt. Fuck. Fuck! He did not want to feel these things. He’d been dealing fine with all his crap, mostly by shutting down. But now he was suddenly terrified he was going to burst into tears.

Title: Exotic Racing Crusader (Exotic Racers #1)
Genre: Erotica,. Contemporary Romance, New Adult


It was the day of a special occasion in my life, when my entire future was rewritten and set on a new course

Or was this always part of destiny that I believed you cannot run from?

My Destiny. Now Ours. Together. Exclusively.

As I watched him at the show I never planned on attending – I was certain of one thing about his velocity:

ONLY GOD is capable of catching him. 

The moment we met, there was no looking back on a past life down a darkened and lonely road any longer.

Before him I had never dated anyone. Before him I lead a normal good-girl life.

With him my plus size curves and unique facial features are loved and adored beyond a passionate and lustful extent

Beside him I became queen to the messiah of an exotic cars racing universe I defied heaven for

As fate would have it, regrets collected like old friends ready to relive both our darkest moments

It’s always darkest before the dawn, but to see the sunrise at the end of the finish line, there are SEVEN words of a pledge barricading the way:


Cauterized words onto his soul that will decide if he is either a villain or a savior

The ultimate sacrifice must be made by him alone
Which will he choose? Which will he let go of? Which means more?

This is our journey
This is where our racing legacy with fast cars begin.

Contemporary, Erotica, New Adult, Romance : Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Review by Ally Obsessive One Clicker

** ARC provided by Obsessed by Books for an honest review **

This was a first time read for my by this author Jordana Mia Lezamy. Wow what a debut novel this was for me I had no clue on what this book was about until I started reading Exotic Racing Crusader. I was hooked when I started reading it and was amazed at the story. I was glued to every page until I finished reading Exotic Racing Crusader.

Kaidence is a twenty six year old who has never felt loved by a man before. She is a virgin still and feels lost and wants what her family has. She is plus size woman and doesn't care how she looks she has a positive attitude about herself. Titan is sexy and all alpha he is also rich. He turns Kaidence's world upside down when they first meet.

I loved how these two grew stronger with each other and made a great relationship with each other. They were both amazing couple and liked how they interacted with each other. I enjoyed the races that were involved in this book.

If you like race car drivers this book is a must read. The action scenes in the book were cool to read. Can't wait to see what happens next.


Review by Wendy Book Obsessed Pimpette

* * ARC given on behalf of obsessed by books for an honest review * *
This book is hot. Titan is a alpha male who tends to be rough around the edges sometimes, but what alpha male isnt. I love the fact will see how a real girl (not a size 2) deals with being a little big and how she feels about her body image, Kaidence is awesome. I truly loved this book. we have great characters with real issues and we see this book being about love for family, friends and lover. Kaidence and Titan are awesome. definitely a must read.

"You can't run from Destiny...All Roads Lead to the same destination." - I live by this self-made motto. 
I'm addicted to Italian Ice-Cream & Exotic Fast Cars *this will be made VERY clear in my book* 
My home is in the city of Lost Angels aka Los Angeles in the U.S.A 
I am plus size full figured girl and so is my leading lady in my debut novel. 
Single, 28 years of age, i am the middle sibling to an older brother and a younger sister. 
I am loud, funny and i have no shame in life. 
I only read dark themed novels or extreme alpha male storylines and i am addicted to music more than the average human should be. I cannot live without it especially 90's music. I first started writing at the age of 13 years old where i had won awards in school for my writing skills and original storylines. Such as the one in my debut series Exotic Racers : Exotic Racing Crusader + Exotic Racing Commander + Exotic Racing Conqueror all to be released in 2015.

About the Author

Willow has always had a penchant for weaving tales. Whether it was horror stories for her bunkmates during sleep away camp, or full blown novels, the written word is always something that Willow has been drawn to. After years of debating whether or not her stories were good enough to be seen by anyone other than people required by blood to tell her they enjoyed them, she has finally made the leap into self-publishing.

A Chicago girl born and raised, you will find that most of her stories are either based in, or somehow tie back to the city she knows and loves. Her loyalties lie on the North-Side, as she proclaims she is a Cubs fan, and a fan of anyone playing against the White Sox. She can also be found regularly rooting for the Illini, when she isn’t being forced by her husband to betray her loyalty to the Blue and Orange in favor of a weekend cheering on the Spartans.

When she isn’t writing (in the physical sense- as stories are always brewing in her head in some form), she can regularly be found feeding her coffee addiction at the Green Mermaid (otherwise known as Starbucks). She is also a voracious reader and is quite certain that there is a glitter encrusted picture frame bearing her headshot somewhere on the wall at Amazon that says “this woman pays our salary.” You can also find her frequently stalking Goodreads, Pinning, FaceBooking, or hanging out on the Twitter.
