DELICATE LOVE by Josephine Brierley

Title: Delicate Love
Author: Josephine Brierley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 5 February


Life has dealt some heavy blows to Mackenzie Tillar. Bullied as a child, and no one to turn to, the one person, who was meant to protect her, to raise her, and surround her with unconditional love, had let her down. Kenzie learnt to deal with life in her own promiscuous way. Until that one fateful night when she met Sam, now she was contemplating breaking the very rules she had instigated.
For Samuel Edwards, being orphaned at a very young age meant that he found his own way in life. He lives it as he pleases, no room for relationships, no belief in love. It was never a part of his life. He’d never craved it, and never missed it. Until one night when he meets his match with Kenzie, she has the same rules, same fears.
They are both void of love, both not even searching for anything else. Fate brings them together, and thirty-six questions ignite a spark in them both. Could thirty-six questions lead to love? It was an experiment worth exploring.
Now they are playing a game, a game that suggests more, but is it more than they have bargained for?
** This book is Part 1 in a series, but is a stand-alone. There is no cliffhanger.
**This book contains some sexual content and disturbing situations. Over 18 years

About the Author

Josephine (Jo) is that person that watches the world turn, studying the characters that exist in life each day, finding different personalities, traits and attributes that can be worked into the stories that flow into her head.
She loves the escapism of writing, finding the time to create new characters whenever she can. With the support and encouragement of her husband, Jo has completed her second novel.
Delicate Love is an adult contemporary romance, with just a touch of anguish.  It's real life, mixed with angst and romance. The story revolves around 36 questions that were originally written as an experiment by Arthur Aron, 41 years ago. His aim at the time was to have a couple fall in love within his laboratory, to prove that intimacy could be encouraged. The laboratory part sounds romantic doesn't it?
 Chasing Butterflies was Jo's debut novel, and is a story she decided she wanted to tell after her own experience with breast cancer. In July 2012, Jo decided that a Bilateral Mastectomy was the best option for her after being diagnosed. Thankfully she was given the all clear after her surgery. It is a story based loosely on her own breast cancer journey, a story of a young woman who faces decisions that no one should have to and finds love along the way.
Jo lives on the Gold Coast, Australia, with her husband Rob, and pet dog Paris. Together they love entertaining, good times with friends and enjoying life.

BLOG TOUR: Drift Heat by Adrian R. Hale

Drift Heat BT Banner
Drift Heat Cover
I didn't want to only be known as the pretty, blonde daughter of a famous race car driver. I wanted to make a name for myself and I wasn't going to let anyone get in my way. So when I saw the opportunity of a lifetime, I jumped. Being the face of the hottest new racing team in the business was a dream come true.
Until he showed up.
Griffin McGregor. Bad boy star driver. On the track, he's gold. Off the track? He's everything my daddy ever warned me about. Infuriatingly egotistical, explosive temper, argumentative know-it-all...why does he have to be so freaking hot?
It'll be a miracle if we can get this team to the championship title without killing each other. Or worse. Because the last thing I'm going to do is wreck my career by jumping in bed with a race car driver.
“If you wanted to dance, sweet thing, all you had to do was ask,” Wyatt says, turning me in his arms and immediately moving us to the beat. “Griff, get over here and give this girl something to grind on. I bet you a thousand bucks it will be the highlight of your night and totally worth it.” I make to cover my face in embarrassment and move away, but Griffin is there, capturing my wrists in his hands and forcing his thigh between mine. My hands find his shoulders tentatively, and once again I am sandwiched between these guys who want nothing more than to get me off, now that they know they can. “Just relax, you’re too stiff,” Wyatt says in my ear as he massages my hips. I giggle because it tickles. His fingers dig in further as his thumbs brush softly under the hem of my tank top, finding skin, and suddenly it doesn’t tickle as much. Griffin pulls me close, crushing my chest against him as his fingers play along my waist. “Is this what you want?” he asks softly, his lips near my ear. “Maybe,” I manage, my eyes closing and chill bumps rushing from my neck to my fingertips with the hot breath he puffs against my skin. I like this feeling of being completely crushed between their weights and held like I’m precious. A little too much. “I bet you wish it was just me making you feel good,” he whispers just loud enough for me to catch what he’s saying. He draws his lips along my jaw as he pulls away. Is Griffin looking for validation that I’m attracted to him? That I’ve fantasized about what he would do with me? That I don’t need Wyatt? I pretend to not hear, because there is no way I can answer that. I shouldn’t even be here dancing with them like this. It’s hard to concentrate on the reasons why I shouldn’t when they keep up their pace grinding me between them, their hands wandering across my torso like they’re blind men discovering the sensation of touch. A breathy sound escapes my lips as my piercing catches the friction of Griffin’s leg. They’re going to do it again, and I don’t want it to stop, even if it’s wrong. I feel Wyatt’s face buried in my hair as Griffin drags his lips softly along my jaw. This isn’t dancing. It’s dry humping vertically, and I’m just along for the ride, caught up in the sensation of hands and legs. It’s probably indecent and not fit to do in public, but that’s partly the appeal. It’s dangerous and bound to get me in trouble and just like my street racing days, it gives me a high I can’t deny. Wyatt uses his hands to angle my hips, sliding me harder against Griffin while he buries himself against my ass. “Oh God,” I breathe, feeling my body reaching for that peak to free-fall from. Griffin takes my earlobe between his teeth, pulling lightly. I let my face fall into the space between his neck and shoulder, my arms grasping him tightly as waves of pleasure overtake me. Inhaling his spicy scent of cologne, soap, sweat, and even a little bit of tire smoke with a ragged breath, I work to not scream my pleasure. It’s even better this time around.
Adrian R. Hale is a whirlwind of energy and optimism, just as ready to tell you about her books as she is to invite you over for cookies. She is a big dreamer and believes in chasing them down with speed and enthusiasm, much like the characters she writes. You can find her cycling around Austin, TX, running trails, baking gourmet cupcakes, beautifying people for weddings and photo shoots, and traveling all over the country in pursuit of those interests. Once upon a time, Adrian went to college thinking she would be a journalist, but dropped out to go to beauty school. Her first published novel ended up being about a hair and makeup artist. Things have definitely come full circle! She loves hearing from her readers at

COVER REVEAL: Specimen by Shay Savage @savage7289


A soldier, a doctor, and a stark white laboratory full of lies.
Specimen releases on February 24th!
Pre-order NOW!

I awaken in a laboratory.
I don’t know who I am.
I’m inexplicably drawn to the doctor who cares for me.  She tells me I’ve been altered, that I’m stronger and faster, that I’ll be a key component in a war between corporations.  She says I volunteered for this.  She says I volunteered to be transformed, but I have no way of knowing if what she says is true.
Something isn’t right.  My memories have been taken, wiped clean, but dreams begin to slip into my conscious mind.  I can’t let anyone know when that happens, or they’ll remove my memories again.  Somewhere inside of me, I know I need to remember something important.
I’m fighting a war I don’t understand, and the one woman I rely on can’t be trusted.

Title: Black
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: January 29, 2016


I am loyal, but I will betray you.
I am strong, but I have scars.
I am an angel, but the devil.
I met her when I was sixteen and she was a breath of fresh air. She swooped in, making me smile. But then she left, taking my next breath with her.
Her smile could light up a room, making my black heart pitter patter.
I found her again ten years later, with a syringe in her arm.
Blood coming from between her legs.
She was broken and I was glad she was broken. She wouldn't think less of me and my damaged ways.

it was amazing

As an avid reader of T.L Smiths books, I was looking forward to reading this one.

Liam, is a very very dark man. He has demons that haunt him every day, he doesn't let anyone get close and accepts jobs as a hitman. He is deemed as the best around and has a reputation that should be feared.

Rose is a young woman that has dealt with her own demons and finds Black again after meeting him at a very young age.

This read, was a fantastic one to read, with lots of twists and turns as you come to expect from tis authors work. The chemistry between these two characters is off the charts, and you will be glued to the pages right until the very end.

This is a dark read, and is you are a lover then this is the book for you. I am looking forward to see what the next book is about.

 it was amazing
"Black surrounds me, Rose. If you're with me, near me, black will surround you, too. Then it will drown you. Taking everything you are with it."

Gah, I have no words for the mind fuckery this book puts you through. Liam Black is a damaged, dark soul. Honed to kill, to carry out jobs for money he began his training young. Alone in the world once his mother was brutality murdered he became an outsider, a boy with an edge that screamed danger even at the tender age of 16. Rose sees things differently to others, not accepting the preconceptions she is the glimmer of light in Black's dark existence until one day she disappears as quickly as she appeared in his life.

Fast forward ten years and her light in nigh on all but extinguished as Black finds her broken, bleeding and lost to a world of addiction. Unable to reconcile the girl he knew to the shadow of herself he has found he can't walk away even though he knows the repercussions will be great. Getting Rose back on her feet is out of character of the ominous Black and yet his soul is not quite as evil as it would first seem. He is drawn to her like a moth to a flame but will he still be able to fly once he has satisfied his addiction to her or will he become nothing but ashes?

Slowly we unravel what happened to our young star crossed, love struck 16 year olds that now ten years later he is a man who revels in blood and she is a drug addict that belongs to the local ruthless MC. Their story is not filled with unicorns and fairy godmother, just pain, misery and the plotting of men that deal in flesh, blood and sex. Sexy as hell, with their morals compasses totally screwed Rose and Black are a modern day Romeo and Juliette. The best love stories are sometimes the most tragic...

Black is a non stop thriller ride, intriguing, suspenseful and gritty. Many questions are left unanswered but hopefully we won't have too long a wait! What, who and WTF...bitter sweet and totally knuckle biting scenes made this one of the best reads so far of 2016. Black is damn sexy, Rose is a fighter and Jake...he needs his own story telling. "Paint it Black" has been on constant repeat, playing over and over in my head ever since I finished this book, it's a story that leaves you needing more, Black is haunting warned.

A Five Star Black is my favourite colour read.
