AUTHOR BIO

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under.

At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown's Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.

Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.

Humorous romance novels.

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles.

Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.

With words.
With writing.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.

Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.

Secrets ruin lives, and lies protect those secrets… 

Wanting to escape her life in New York City before starting medical school in the fall, Anna Dillon convinces her best friend Dante to travel with her to Thailand on a medical mission. While volunteering in a coastal village recently ravaged by a tsunami, Anna meets Jude Grayson. They share an instant attraction that leads to a brief, passionate affair. When she has to rush home for a family emergency, he promises to stay in touch.

But Jude never calls, and Anna tries desperately to forget him.

Five years pass, and Anna finally moves on with Dante after giving up hope that Jude will ever return—until they come face to face again in a chance encounter. Reeling, Anna discovers the life-altering secret of why Jude never contacted her—and why they can’t be together. But the passion that ignited between them on an exotic beach years ago never died, making it impossible to stay away from each other.

And Dante? Anna discovers that the friend she grew to love—and trust—has a secret of his own.

Blog Tour & Review - Prophet Takes All by Melissa Brown













Prophet Takes All  (Compound Series #4)
by Melissa Brown
Release Date: October 25, 2016 
Add to Goodreads

Amazon


SYNOPSIS


Fools.
So many fools. Nothing but fools.

That worm of a detective, my mother, Paul. Fools—all of them. But Aspen, oh Aspen…she was the biggest fool of all.

Aspen Black, a seemingly ordinary woman of the compound, transformed into the utter bane of my existence in just a matter of months. She had the gall to question me, to seek the counsel of an outsider, and to disobey my word.

To add to her list of transgressions, Aspen recruited my own brother in the crusade against me. For this, they must both be punished. And their daughter, Ruthie, is the key to their retribution.

Aspen and Paul will pay for their crimes against the one true prophet. If it’s the very last thing I do.






*My review contains mild series spoilers*

I wasn't sure how to feel about this book at first. I didn't think I would like it written strictly from the Prophet's pov. Fortunately it's not. We also get Ruthie's, Aspen's, Paul's, Sarah's, Isaac's, etc. But, surprisingly, I didn't hate the Prophet's pov. I thought it was clever of Brown because we were able to learn the full extent of the Prophet's plan without it actually happening. And you may think I'm crazy but I thought he was kind of funny in the way a power-hungry, bumbling, ego-maniac can be.

The only thing I didn't like was how Detective Cooke, such an important character in Mother Before Wife and Just Keep Sweet, was just kind of thrown aside in this book. It was hinted he might be a possible love interest but it felt like Brown changed her mind so she cut him out almost completely. Like she didn't know what to do with him. Of course, if he ends up getting his own book then I take back what I said. Lol.

Also, it didn't bother me but it might bother other readers, this book had zero steam. I would hardly even classify it as a romance in comparison to the previous books in the series. But Brown is in the unusual situation of having the H sleeping with a dozen women and having it be perfectly acceptable so I appreciated her predicament and I didn't let the vagueness bother me.

Otherwise, it was an enjoyable read. I'm satisfied with the ending. I love this series. Well done.

Beard Science

by Penny Reid Winston Brothers #3 Publication Date: October 11, 2016 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Humor, Romance



beardscience




Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need? Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee’s reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother’s ambitions, and her father’s puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate. And desperate times call for Cletus Winston. Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So… what’s a maniacal mastermind to do? Likely, the last thing you expect. ‘Beard Science’ is the third book in the Winston Brothers series, is a full-length romantic comedy novel, and can be read as a standalone.

5 STARS!!

Oh Cletus you oddball, banjo-playin', sausage makin', blueberry pancake eatin', schemin', blackmailer you. We've all been dying for this book and Penny Reid did not disappoint. Cletus made me squee through every page. He's such an original and refreshing character. I like his quirkiness, he had so many funny moments. But he's also fiercely loyal to his family and that made him especially endearing.

What surprised me the most was how much I loved Jennifer. In previous books she seemed kind of dull but she was a people watcher. That's what happens when you're mostly ignored all your life but she was sharp as a tack and boy did she have Cletus's number. I loved the way she got one over on him and made him notice her.

It was fun seeing Cletus rattled. He was insistent that they didn't suit, that they were just friends and he wanted to help Jenn make her life her own. It should come as no surprise she hates being the banana cake queen. But when Cletus stops fighting it...*sighs* Let's just say he's an amazing boyfriend.

Reid also did a great job setting up Beau's book. I'm looking forward to it.

Best book of the year. Amazing job. Bravo, Ms. Reid!

About Penny Reid



SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing). By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

Release Blitz - Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas





Title: Punk 57
Genre: New Adult
Author: Penelope Douglas
Release Date: October 21, 2016



Synopsis:

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Douglas, comes the latest New Adult romance of love, hate, and everything in between...
"We were perfect together. Until we met."
Misha
I can’t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me.
In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.
It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever…
And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.
Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.
We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?
Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?
F*ck it. I need to meet her.
I just don’t expect to hate what I find.

Ryen
He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.
Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his phone number or picture or something.
He could be gone forever.
Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.

*Punk 57 is a stand alone New Adult romance. It is suitable for ages 18+.
