BOUNCE BY JAS T. WARD








                                           SYNOPSIS

     

The exciting novella that ties into the popular Shadow-Keepers Series by Jas T. Ward-- BOUNCE. 

Wisdom says that one’s past makes one’s future. Both intertwine with the present to weave the cloth of one’s life in a tapestry of events that show the whole play of time. 

But what happens when a past is forgotten. The threads of memory hidden away to prevent the cloth of time from being unfolded as to prevent it from being ripped apart at the seams? 

Power can destroy. Power can create. But when powers with no known purpose are pushed too far, can a love for mankind save it? 

This is the story of Bounce. 

The god without a past. The god with an unspoken and unknown future. And a god with a destiny and the power to save us all. 

Shame he can’t remember that. 

But someone does. 

**BONUS MATERIAL included at end of this book!!! - The exciting first three chapters of the second novel in the Shadow-Keepers Series: LUST as a special sneak peek!



                                                                     MEET THE AUTHOR

Jas T. Ward has always used writing as a necessary escape. With a past that is marred with a difficult childhood and domestic violence as well as being homeless as an adult, Ward lost her creative voice when she lost her soul mate to suicide.

Finding that creative voice once again in writing in social media via blogs and creative writing groups, it was the fans that encouraged her to put her literary weavings to paper for them to enjoy.

Ward lives in Texas with her dog and cat- Author Dog Pumkin and Writer Kitty Orleans and is the proud parent of three independent children. 

When asked why she writes, Ward answers simply:

Reading saved me. It was my salvation and my haven. I now strive to pay that gift back by writing books that can give the same to others. And to keep myself sane.

Dog Days of Summer by PJ Fiala




SYNOPSIS:

Joci was a mother first, a biker second and was running her marketing and design business, third.  She believed in a good cause while enjoying the open road with friends and family.

Dog owns a successful business building some of the greatest motorcycles around.  Men and women alike respected and envied him.  Being a veteran, he believed in helping other veterans in the only way he knew how, by riding motorcycles.


They meet, try to ignore the attraction and ultimately fall in love only to have their love tested by a jealous employee who wants Dog for herself.  Can they survive?



                                           EXCERPT


Excerpt 1


There were times like this when Joci wanted to burst out laughing it felt so good. The wind in her face, running through her hair, the sun warming her skin, the roar all around her, seven hundred-plus pounds of pure unadulterated power between her legs, and she was controlling it all. Gliding through traffic with her son, Gunnar, just a few yards in front of her, feeling all the love and joy God made for her, just her. Yes, these were the times Joci enjoyed. She smiled as they came up behind a car and floated over to the left lane to pass. As she watched, Gunnar glided easily past the car, his dark hair pulled into a low ponytail, the two little kids in the back seat watching him and smiling at each other. You could tell they were thinking, Someday, I’m going to do that. Then as she pulled up alongside to pass them, they started smiling and pointing at her, one of them turning to the adult in the front seat and saying something causing the driver to look over at her as she passed him. He smiled at her, and Joci smiled back at the reaction; it happened often. She could almost hear the kids in the back: Look dad, a girl on a motorcycle.

She easily pulled in front of the car and continued on down the highway to their destination. She loved this life, this group of people that she had, at least, this in common with. A few minutes later, Gunnar and Joci put their turn signals on to turn off the highway, onto a frontage road, and into the parking lot of Rolling Thunder Motorcycles. They navigated the last few shoppers straggling out at the end of the day.

Gunnar worked at Rolling Thunder Motorcycles as a mechanic for the past year. He loved working here. He loved the people he worked with, he loved the customers and their bikes, he loved building bikes, and lately Dog had let him help in the design on some of the custom bikes they were known for. And well-known they were becoming. Dog built some of the hottest bikes around. He had recently been in Rider magazine, and showcased on several “biker” shows. His reputation for building beautiful, custom, mechanically sound bikes was becoming legend.


Excerpt 2


 Gunnar said, “Conference room is this way mom.”
Joci nodded once and followed behind Gunnar as they made their way through the store and up the stairs. Joci noted the store was neat and tidy.  There were racks of clothing on one side of the store and parts, accessories, and motorcycles on the other. The store was well-lit and colorful. The logo painted on the wall, though, was boring. Rolling Thunder Motorcycles, Inc.  was painted in silver lettering on a white wall with nothing else. No real logo other than the name.

Entering a room off to the right at the top of the stairs, Joci stopped in her tracks as she crossed the threshold. Dog was sitting at the conference table, which was a large, well-worn oak table littered with beer cans, papers and miscellaneous food wrappers. About eight other people were either sitting at the table or standing around talking.

As she stood in the doorway he looked up from his reading and stared at her.

“Dog, this is my mom, Joci. Mom, this is Jeremiah Sheppard, but everyone calls him Dog.”

Joci watched as Dog stood to his full height, and rounded the table toward her. Well-built, broad shoulders supported the most beautiful head and face Joci had ever seen on a man. Long blonde hair and bright green eyes held her attention as he came to a stop in her space. He reached his hand out to shake hers, but Joci stood transfixed as she looked into his eyes.

“Nice to meet you Joci.  Gunnar has told me a lot about you. I appreciate your time in helping us plan next year’s event.”


Excerpt 3


“Are you seeing someone?” He held his breath. It was probably none of his business, but in all the times Gunnar had spoke of his mother, he never mentioned a boyfriend and Jeremiah knew his dad was out of the picture.
Her tongue darted out and moistened her lips as she looked at him with the most beautiful gray eyes he had ever seen. Framed by thick lashes, he had noticed her eyes the second she stepped through the door. When he stood in her space to shake her hand, her perfume filled his senses and caused his brain to short circuit for a few beats, which also caused his cock to thicken.

“Ah, no. No boyfriend. I… just can’t.” Joci took a step back and started to turn to leave his office.
“Call me if you have any questions, Joci. I’m excited to get this logo implemented. It’s something that’s been missing for a long time now.”

As she turned to walk out the door, Jeremiah took a deep breath and slowly let it out. She was breath taking. Tiny little body, beautiful smile framed by dimples, and she was smart. She had pegged his business needs within minutes of walking in the door of his shop. He wanted to get to know her better. He had never dreamed of finding a woman like her.


                            ABOUT PJ FIALA


I was born in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri named Bridgeton. During my time in Missouri, I explored the Ozarks, swam in the Mississippi River, played kickball and endless games of hide and seek with the neighborhood kids. Spending summers in Kentucky with my Grandmother, Ruth, are the fondest childhood memories for me.

At the age of thirteen, my family moved to Wisconsin to learn to farm. Yes, learn to farm! That was interesting. Taking city kids and throwing them on a farm with twenty-eight cows purchased from the Humane Society because they had been abused, was interesting. I learned to milk cows, the ins and outs of a breeding schedule, feeding schedule and the never ending haying in the summer and trying to stay warm in the winter. Our first winter in Wisconsin, we had thirty-six inches of snow in one storm and were snowed in our house for three days! Needless to say, I wasn't loving Wisconsin.

I am now married with four children and three grandchildren. I have learned to love Wisconsin, though I still hate snow. Wisconsin and the United States are beautiful and my husband and I travel around by motorcycle seeing new sites and meeting new people. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are interested in where we are going and what we have seen along the way. At every gas station, restaurant and hotel, we have people come up to us and ask us about what we are doing and offering advice on which roads in the area are better than others and great rides others have been on if we are interested.

CRIMSON TIES BY VL MOON AND JT CHEYANNE







SYNOPSIS:

Not everything in Heaven is as holy as it seems... 

In Crimson Ties, the second installment of the Crimson Nights Saga, Laziel is nowhere to be found, and with the ferocity of Malachi Denali's vampiric temperament growing out of control, Rome's Vatican enclave and those that dwell there risk everything to keep their King’s throne out of Darklon De Sangue’s treacherous hands. 

As Darklon's mental state deteriorates, his treasonous plans to overthrow Malachi know no bounds. With Arial dancing upon a deadly double-edged sword and working to gain Darklon's trust, this continuing saga keeps everyone on tenterhooks as new treaties are strengthened and friendships are forged by oaths and blood. 

Will Laziel return in time to save Malachi from those that threaten the male he loves, or will the fury of Malachi's distain for emotion see Laziel ascend if he refuses to accept the hand that destiny has dealt him and the gift of his angel's love? 

With emotions running high, and Malachi's past turning up to haunt them both in the form of the mysterious Vischeral Bourne, the twists and turns may prove too much for Laziel and his vampire. While Malachi and Laziel struggle with fate, an alliance with the wolves and the secrets behind the Nephilim and their sadistic Queen threaten to rock the very foundations of the supernatural world. 

Who knows what ties will bind and which will fade away. 

With a high element of supernatural romance and erotic sexcapades between male lovers, Crimson Ties may not be to some people’s taste, but for those brave enough to step into the wicked world of Laz and Lachi, we hope that you will read and thoroughly enjoy… 


                                                     




REVIEW:

         From the moment I finished Crimson Reign I began my countdown to Crimson Ties, and the waiting is finally over. When I finished reading Crimson Reign last year I wasn’t sure how or IF JT Cheyanne and VL Moon would be able to top it. Well I am so happy to report they did! Crimson Ties blew me away. It not only lived up to Crimson Reign, it may have exceeded it. By the end of the book I was a complete emotional wreck, in a good way! We are taken on a wild ride of emotions, from fear, joy, happiness, loss, love, to frustration and everything in between.

     There is never a dull moment in this book; you are kept on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last. And even then you in utter shock!! I believe my reaction to the ending was “WHAT do you mean that’s the end???!!”(In my family we call the “Pulling an Aaron” LONG story LOL) 

Once again there are multiple story lines going on, yet JT and VL make the transition from one to the next effortlessly. I don’t want to recount them all because you really need to read this for yourselves but I would like to give just a few of my favorite/highlights of this book.

First is the “triangle” between Malachi, Laz, and Loz. These charries, I love them so much, and their story also breaks my heart. I have a soft spot for Loz and wanted so much for her to find some kind of happiness. I have loved Laz and Malachi for so long, and to be able to read and become part of their journey is amazing. And can I just say I can’t wait to see Malachi rip Darklon a new one?! UGH that guy makes me crazy; he is a most excellent villain.

Second is Arial, I liked him in Crimson Reign but in this book I really started falling for him. There is something about this tortured soul that just drew me in. Is it wrong to want to snuggle a Fallen? Maybe but I can’t help it, there is so much sadness in him it nearly kills me. I cannot wait to see more of him and his story in the future. 

      Then there is the entire story of Copi and Vischeral, yet another set of beautifully stubborn, hot tempered, fierce males. Did I mention stubborn? LOL Yep they sure are, to the point I want to shake them both....or a smack on the ass….but they would both like that LOL!!

        I could go on and on about this book, I haven’t even mention Tobias and Roman, or Kimberly and Saul. Let’s just say I loved this book, I fell in love with all the characters, which is a must for me as a reader. I would recommend this series, hell these author’s to anyone. Well done my friends, thank you for this journey and I look forward to the next part.

SYNOPSIS:

A pulse of light preceded the gift of life breathed into the coldest and darkest of souls. Bathed in the glow of celestial love and swathed in a blanket of black satin wings nestled a king among kings, a vampire born to destroy the decay threatening to eradicate the race he was destined to save.

An angelic heart torn by yearning, suffering and pain throbbed to the rhythm of the life he created; a life prophesied in the scriptures by the Creator’s own hand. A vow of servitude given in blood sealed the fate of a Seraphim's heart and tied it eternally to the creation he craves, protects…loves.

Ancient treaties are lost and reborn, rising from the ashes as the Nephilim ravage the vampire race. The deviant desire that soared in Malachi Denali's blood threatens to bring Rome to its knees when Malachi's world, his soul and his heart are brutally shattered and torn apart.

Will purity born of an angel's love be enough to calm the savage mind of Malachi Denali? Or will Laziel be doomed to a life of purgatory for loving the life he was gifted to create…

This is not a HEA, or even a HFN....Who knows what will happen to seal their fate...only time will tell. Vampires, angels, demons and wolves together with love, betrayal, sadness and yearning make up the ongoing story that is...

Please be sure to show some love to this lovely lady and check out this and other books by her.




BIO

Writing is Sara's life. The stories fight to get out, often leaving her working on four or five books at once. She can't help but write. Along with her writing addiction she has a coffee addiction. Some nights, the only reason she stops writing and goes to sleep is for the fresh brewed coffee in the morning.

Sara enjoys writing twisted tales of passion, anger, and love with a good healthy dose of lust thrown in for fun. Almost a quarter of a century ago Sara met her lover, falling for him after knowing him for ten minutes. Sara's passion for him comes out in her stories, mixing with her passion for life, love, and good times, flowing onto the page and becoming tales from the heart.


                                                      A Southern Thing Series

Volume 1

Pray the Gay Away


     Star football player, Jack Miller, had it all. The perfect family, looks, girls hanging on his every word, and the respect of most people in his town. But one thing was missing--a man to be his own. When Andrew Collins showed up in small town, conservative Sweet, Georgia, he looked more scrawny mutt than high school senior. Andrew's plan was to keep his head down and graduate high school, leaving his family behind to start his real life. When he meets Andrew, Jack thinks he's found heaven, but reality holds him in check until one night when his lips gently slide across Andrew's and fireworks go off. As lust and something a little deeper brings them together, compelling them to take chances, people start to notice. Then the unthinkable happens, and Jack's parents find out he likes guys. The battle lines are drawn and they vow to pray the gay away.




Volume 2

Sending Jack off to Jesus


     Jack Miller has more than he could ask for with Andrew as his boyfriend, but it's being taken away from him and there isn't anything he can do. His father knows he's gay, and his mother wants him to have sex with a girl to make sure he's not mistaken. Andrew Collins has found the perfect home in foster care with Cole and Melinda Kemp, but it won't last. The DA thinks his parents have proven they've changed, but Andrew doesn't believe the change will last. Just when Jack and Andrew think it can't get any worse, it does. Jack's father sends him to New Life Christian Camp, a program that promises to pray the gay away. But Andrew has it worse as his father takes out his anger on him, leaving him near death. Both Jack and Andrew are lost to each other, their lives in tatters all because their parents wanted to pray the gay away.







Volume 3

My Big Fat Southern Gay Wedding


      When he was a kid, Jack Miller thought life would be a certain way, then he figured out he liked boys and not girls, changing the course of his future. Jack has spent the last few years learning that life doesn't always give you what you expect, in both good and bad ways. Andrew's gone missing and Jack's parents have split. He's made it through high school, but the future is nothing without Andrew. To be complete, Jack knows he needs to find Andrew and bring him home. But Andrew has disappeared. Lost doesn't even begin to describe how Andrew Collins feels. Homeless and destitute, he's ready to end it all. Thinking that Jack is dead, Andrew returns to Sweet to end his life on Jack's grave. Instead, he finds lies were told that drove him to a path of destruction. After not seeing each other for almost a year, Jack and Andrew come together, but their problems don't end there. They must work hard to make it to their big fat Southern gay wedding or risk losing it all.

Always by Kindle Alexander


I want to start off this post with a trailer for Always made by fellow blogger, owner/partner of Bibiophile Productions Becca Manuel. She did a great job, I love it!!








BLURB:

      Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future.

      Easy isn't even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton's life after his father, a devout southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table thirty-four. 



Review:

From the first page, hell the first paragraph, this book grabbed a hold of me and didn’t let go.  I hadn’t even gotten to know the characters or the story and I was crying before I had finished reading the first few pages. That is a testament to the brilliant writing of Kindle Alexander. She has the ability to express so much emotion in her writing it pulls you into the story completely from the beginning.  

For me one of the things I liked most about this book was the fact that it wasn’t about some “big bad” or someone trying to break Avery and Kane apart. It was about life, the kind of life we all strive to have. One filled with love, passion, family and career. And how each of this things are scary, wonderful, and completely worth fighting for. 

I was so engrossed in the life of Kane and Avery by the end of the book that my heart broke and I became a complete and total mess. My daughter comes in and sees me blubbering asks if I am ok, all I could do was sob, point at the book, and nod. She smiles as she laughs at me, tells me “must be a good one”. That was putting it mildly. It was a great one.

Always is a must read, so be sure you get your copy….but make sure to have some of these on hand!!!

Critique, Review and Hatefulness Supertatee's rantings from her Soapbox

        Let me start by saying this post is MY OPINION MY THOUGHTS AND MY FEELINGS!!!!! So if you are offended, sorry it was nice knowing you.

My sister and I started this blog as a place to talk about books we have read, those we like and don’t like. As time has gone on we have been fortunate enough to work directly with some authors on reviews, releases, and promotions. It has been a lot of fun. I personally post here, on my Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble accounts; as well as share on my Twitter and Facebook. And we try to remind the readers as well as authors that we are not professional reviewers or editors, we are just sharing our opinions. I also read reviews of other bloggers. Over time I have seen on all these sites reviews of many different people. Many just like us, people giving opinions. But there are others who seem to get great pleasure being complete and utter assholes. I am not just saying that to be mean but there isn’t another way to put it. If you don’t like a book, fine you are entitled to feel that way. And there is a way to write the review so that it helps other readers and the authors. For example if an author reads a review where someone states the book in question didn’t make sense or maybe didn’t flow well and the reviewer gives examples it actually can help the author when writing a future story. BUT there are those “reviewers” that seem to take it too far, they are hateful, rude and sometimes abusive. There is a way to explain why you didn’t like a book without being ignorant, insulting or cruel to the work or the author. I have seen so called reviews where the person writing it, who has no knowledge of the author other than what the “about the author” page in the book, has stated verbally attack the author. Why? Does it make them feel better about themselves? Personally when I see a review like that I completely dismiss it, I don’t take the advice of someone who gets off on being an asshat. What really gets me is on one of the sites I mention above there is a group of these people who are all over the place giving these kinds of reviews; each one nasty and vindictive; seems like they may need a new hobby, or a new personality.  I have seen where some of them even become aggressive with the readers that did enjoy the book and posted a reviewing saying so. Seems to me if they have the right to be mean and hateful then others have the right to write to a polite review, notice I didn’t say  a favorable one? To me a “good review” can mean the person liked the book or that they wrote a review stating why they didn’t like the book in a way that is helpful to all involved. As sad as those bad apples of reviews make me I would like to say Thank You to all the wonderful people who leave reviews both in favor of a book and those who even when they don’t enjoy a book still leave a review that is decent and helpful.
