Review by Barbara

What a fabulous conclusion to the duet. Over Hard takes up rights where Over Easy (Book 1) ends. The author continues with this wonderful storyline with absolutely no drop off in humor, romance or suspense. If anything she steps things up keeping the reader engrossed in the story.

Harper has just found out Jack lied to her and feels like her life is crumbling around her. Between Jack’s lies and her ex stalking her she is at her wits ends. On the other end of things Jack is going out of his mind without her. When Harper is forced to see Jack because he’s keeping her friends twins they finally have a chance to talk things out. From here the story takes off and oh what a wildly delicious ride it is. 

The author’s words will have you laughing, your toes curling and at time wanting to bite your nails as the storyline unfolds. Between both their crazy ex’s, Jacks dysfunctional family and Harpers wacky friends this is an amazing duet that I highly recommend. 2 Thumbs Up for a fun, sexy exciting read!

Review by Kathy

I loved this book! Continuing with Harper and Jack's story, tying up loose ends, answering questions and bringing a bit more excitement and drama into it, it brings their story to a close. (I still want to know what's up with Riley though...I'm thinking another book???? )

When we slammed into that wall of a cliffie in the first book, we now pick up from there and find that communication would have saved everyone a whole lot of grief. But it wouldn't make for good reading if they did that, right? No, Jack's unexpected guests at his restaurant throws Harper for a loop and sends her running, right into her ex, who may or may not be holding a gun. It's pouring so hard and her heart is breaking and pounding so hard that she's not sure what she sees anymore, all she knows is that she has to get away from him and Jack. But when Jack calls out to her, her ex disappears. Making it into her car, she leaves Jack standing in the pouring rain, and her tears fall just as fast as the raindrops. Her friends step in, console and advise. OMG, even Rosa steps in and takes Harper and Riley into her apartment and "dolls" them up. A can of hairspray, a ton of makeup and she has Harper ready to go. While she works on Riley, a knock at her door has her sending Harper to answer it. JACK. He's done giving her space and they need to talk. She needs to hear him out. 

Things are seeming back to normal, when after a horrible experience at his parent's house that causes Jack's siblings to both quit their jobs with their father's firm, Jack's mother shows up at Harper's house..she's left her husband. What more can possibly happen? Now it is up to Jack to not only take care of his mother, but his daughter and her b*tch of a mother, his restaurant AND the overseeing of the new one that he is opening up. Oh and he also has to deal with Harper's ex. But, Jack isn't the one who takes on the bulk of those responsibilities, Harper does. 

Will Jack ever realize that he is more like his father than he thinks? HHMMMMMM. Sometimes it takes something major to open one's eyes to what they have right in front of them.

I loved this book and did not put it down until I finished it. It is a wonderful story filled with laughs, anger, fear, and so much love. The characters are so relatable and personable that they will embed themselves into your heart. 

I highly recommend this book and hope that everyone reads both books, well you kinda have to to understand what is going on in this one. Enjoy!!!

Review by Barbara

So what’s a girl to do when she wakes up with a hangover and gets a voice memo from her drunk self telling herself not to freak out, to remember what happened last night was a good thing and oh yeah, she’s now married to her childhood and longtime crush? She freaks out anyway, right! Especially since she hasn’t seen the guy since she was 17 and she’s now 22. Not to mention he’s hot, rich, famous and apparently her new husband - YIKES!!!

This is a fast paced fun sexy read. The author has done a great job with characters that will have you laughing one minute and your toes curling the next! My only negative, which in NO WAY reflects on the author’s wonderful storyline, is that I missed the connection to the “Last Resort Motel” and the gang that lives and works there, which the other books in this series all had. But otherwise, I offer the author 2 Thumbs Up for Room 419 and I recommend it along with all the other Rooms in the series.

Meet the Author

With over fifty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young age Ann has been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that was often the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

Ann loves to talk with her fans, as long as they realize she's weird and that sarcasm doesn't translate well via text.

He’d protect her from any threat… 
But what if the biggest threat is him?

Doctor Anne Nichols is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone. 

Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.

Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him

Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place. 

But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival skills will become much more than lessons…

Review by Barbara

This is one of those book that makes you say, “I can’t wait until the next book in the series releases”. You know where the author gives you a great beginning storyline with characters that just grab a hold of your heartstrings and just enough backstory that gets you excited about what’s to come while not taking away from the current book.

This is Zac and Annie’s story. Zac and his friends have moved back to his small hometown after many years serving in Special Ops and have opened a Linear Tactical, a place where they train people self-defense, weapons training and other special courses. Zac is haunted by the tragic death of his wife and young son as well as a drunken night shortly after his death where he spent the night with his wife’s best friend, Annie. As for Annie, she was not popular as a kid, people made fun of her stutter so she stayed in the shadows and had few friends. Annie she left town after that night night with wonderful night with Zac because he broke her heart by telling her to get out and never come back. Fast forward to the present, Annie has moved back to the town, is the head ER Doctor and lucky for her no one recognizer her grown up. Well no one but Zac when he’s admitted to the ER after wrecking his motorcycle. Zac is not happy about seeing because he feels guilty about what they did but also because he can’t remember all the details. But when he sees the fear in Annie’s eyes at seeing him again, Zac is even more guilty and confused. Zac and Annie have both thought about each other over the years and coming face to face again stirs up a lot of emotions the both try to hide as they work on rebuilding their friendship. But Zac still wants to understand the fear he saw in her eyes. 

The story really takes off from here. We meet the guys of Linear Tactical and watch them in action. Especially when danger comes to the area and the Sheriff needs their expertise. But what happens when danger hits a little too close to home? During all the excitement we also learn what happened in the past with Zac and Annie. Can these two possibly put the past behind them and become the friend they both need? This is a very exciting story and one I Highly Recommend. 2 Thumbs up for a great start to the series and this reader is Anxiously awaiting book 2 in the Linear Tactical series. 

Review by Kathy

What a start to what promises to be one fantastic series! Zac and Annie's story begins with a very rocky and painful start. After losing his family 6 years prior and throwing Annie out of his room and telling her to leave and never come back after a drunken night and taking something from her that he would have no memory of the next day, they are back face to face. This time Zac is a patient in the ER and Annie is the doctor that is tending to him. No one knew who she was as her last name had changed, and in the past Annie was always unnoticeable, always shy and shying away from crowds. But stepping into that ER room, after clearing the nurses who gathered to be in the same room with the hot Linear Tactical team, she is face to face with the man who she had quietly loved for years, the one her best friend had married and had a child with, the one they both lost years ago, the one who broke her like no other man had ever done, not even her ex-husband. Zac sees her and notices the fear in her eyes. Not just fear of this situation because she turns on the professional side of herself and handles herself well, but it is the fear of him that he sees and is confused. What was that all about? But Zac has always thought about Annie, even imagined being with her in his mind. Now she was here, but he needed to know what made her fear him? As they begin their friendship, Annie tells him that the past was the past, but he isn't comfortable with that because he truly cannot remember what happened that night after a certain point. But that will have to be put on hold until the current event of a couple of rapes have been solved. Danger is lurking and he wants to make sure that Annie is safe, but he also wants to get to know her more, to be with her, to find out once again what happened. And, that is all you get! I'm not going to say anything else about this story because you need to open the mysteries yourself. 

The characters are so very well written and so likable that you will want to move to their small town yourself, just to know these people. There are so many supporting characters that you will attach yourself to, besides the team themselves, there's Wavy, Riley, the Mayor..a trip herself, and the woman you will hate the most until you don't, Mia and many others. But it is Zac and Annie who will steal the show in this book because when they get together, the heat will definitely rise from the pages. 

A wonderful beginning to this series, that will give you a glimpse into the personalities of the rest of the team while giving you the lead character's story. Do not miss this one! I highly recommend this book!


“I was here a couple of years ago, but only for a day or two,” Anne told Zac, looking away. She had booked a room out of Oak Creek both times she’d dared come back. The thought of staying at The Mayor’s Inn had been too painful. She couldn’t even look at that hotel without feeling sick to her stomach.

And she’d avoided everyone—particularly Zac—as much as possible. Just in case his words about not coming back were still true. She tried to swallow the panic that threatened to overwhelm her. Maybe he still felt that way now, even though he hadn’t said anything at the hospital.

“There.” He pointed at her. “That look that just came into your eyes. I saw it at the hospital. It’s like you’re afraid of me, Annie.” He took a step closer and she instinctively one back. One of his eyebrows shot up, letting her know she’d proved his point. “Do you think I’m going to hurt you?”

“No.” Not physically. She’d never worried that he’d hurt her that way, despite having five inches and probably fifty pounds—all muscle—on her.

But he was right. She couldn’t continue living in Oak Creek with them ignoring everything that had happened that night. What had been said. What had been done. Maybe she would’ve tried to, and to avoid Zac forever, if he hadn’t ended up in her ER. 

But the truth was, there weren’t enough bushes in this town for her to jump into. She was going to run into Zac. A lot.

Sometimes all you could do was face the past.

She pulled a breath in. “I’m not scared of you. I mean, I know you would never hurt me physically. For crying out loud, you wrecked your motorcycle rather than hit a dog.” She’d meant for her laugh to seem breezy, but it just sounded stilted. “But yeah, I mean, we can’t pretend like that night never happened. The stuff we did. Stuff you...we said.”

His eyes narrowed. “That night we spent together after Becky died.”

“Yeah. That night.” As if they’d had another. “The bottom line is, I can’t leave here, Zac. No matter what you said then, or even if you feel the same way now.”

He shook his head, brows furrowing. “I don’t expect you to leave. You’re obviously a respected doctor, more than competent. Why would you think I wanted you to leave?”

Some of the tension she’d been carrying since his arrival in the ER began to ease. He was right. Something said in grief and anger six years ago didn’t necessarily hold true all this time later. She was silly for thinking it did. “Okay, well, it’s good to know you don’t feel the same as you did back then.”

He took a single predatory step closer, and she tensed again. “I said something that night to make you think you needed to leave?”

She stared at him, her mouth flopping open like some sort of fish. “You don’t remember what you said?”

Those words would be engrained in her memory forever.

Get out and don’t come back.

He rubbed his forehead. “That whole night is fuzzy for me.”

I can’t even bear to look at you. You just betrayed the only person in this town who ever wanted you here. 

Tossing her naked into the hallway before flinging her clothes at her. 

“What do you remember?” She forced the words past a throat that seemed to have dried up.

His hand moved to the back of his neck. “Honestly, not much at all. It’s sort of a blur.”

She retreated a step from him again. That night had been the most important night of her life. The best. The worst. It had changed the very fabric of her being. 

And it was sort of a blur for him.

Book Blitz with Giveaway & Reviews - Death By The River

Death by the River
Alexandrea Weis & Lucas Astor

Published by: Vesuvian Books
Publication date: October 2nd 2018
Genres: Horror, Young Adult
A high school “American Psycho.”
Along the banks of the Bogue Falaya River, sits the abandoned St. Francis Seminary. Beneath a canopy of oaks, blocked from prying eyes, the teens of St. Benedict High gather here on Fridays. The rest of the week belongs to school and family—but weekends belong to the river.
And the river belongs to Beau Devereaux.
The only child of a powerful family, Beau can do no wrong. Handsome. Charming. Intelligent. The star quarterback of the football team. The “prince” of St. Benedict is the ultimate catch.
He is also a psychopath.
A dirty family secret buried for years, Beau’s evil grows unchecked. In the shadows of the ruined St. Francis Abbey, he commits unspeakable acts on his victims and ensures their silence with threats and intimidation. Senior year, Beau sets his sights on his girlfriend’s headstrong twin sister, Leslie, who hates him. Everything he wants but cannot have, she will be his ultimate prize.
As the victim toll mounts, it becomes crystal clear that someone has to stop Beau Devereaux.
And that someone will pay with their life.


Leslie clung to him, wishing they were outside. “What is this place?”
“The cells.” Derek kept his voice low.
She squeezed his bicep. “I’ve never been inside The Abbey.” Leslie peered into the dim, cavernous corridor ahead, with only patches of light coming through the thick stone walls. “I wish we hadn’t come.”
“It will be fine, I promise.” He patted her hand. “Nothing will hurt you. I won’t let it.”
They crept along, their feet hitting sticks and fallen pieces of plaster from the crumbling walls around them. Puddles of water dotted the uneven stone floor and dampened Leslie’s tennis shoes. Mounds of dead leaves lay swept to the side. The low ceiling had roots coming through it, and the walls were cold and slimy to the touch. Derek shined his flashlight into the first room on the left. It was a depressingly small space composed of four walls and no windows.
It reminded Leslie of a jail cell rather than a place where a person would choose to live.
Scraps of paper littered the ground of the next cell they came across; another had a rusty metal frame of a bed. Several of the rooms had cracks in their plaster ceilings along with patches of mold. When they stumbled on a few rat skeletons, Leslie turned her head into Derek’s shoulder.
At the end of the passageway, sunlight snuck through a break in the wall. The intrusion of light was a welcome sight and Leslie’s fear abated. The jagged opening allowed green leaves from the plants outside to reach in, and a few creeping vines jutted up toward the ceiling. Along the floor, a thick pile of dead leaves hid the lower part of the opening.
“There was a cave-in along the wall here.” Derek brushed the leaves aside, revealing a fairly large breach able to accommodate one person at a time. “The other cells past this point are too dangerous to explore. We can get out here and avoid going back through The Abbey.”
Derek turned off his flashlight and handed it to her. He pushed the leaves back, pulled the vines down, and kicked the debris at the bottom away, trying to clear the opening.
While he worked, a glimmering light from inside one of the cells farther down the corridor distracted her. She flipped on the flashlight and angled it into the tight quarters beyond the cave-in.
The walls in this portion of the cells had deeper cracks than the rest of the structure. The fissures ran along the entire ceiling and down to the floors. Patches of black mold were everywhere. What struck her as odd was the lack of debris. It appeared as if it had been freshly swept without any leaves or rat skeletons littering the ground.
Derek came up behind her. “What are you doing?”
Leslie headed toward the room where she’d spotted the strange light. “I saw something.”
The smell of rot and mold filled her nose. Her skin brushed against the slimy walls, and she cringed. But something compelled her to keep going into the section Derek had deemed too dangerous to explore.
“Leslie, stop.”
Naturally, she ignored him and pressed on, testing the floor with the toe of her shoe as she carefully progressed. Her heartbeat kicked up a notch, but this time a tingling sensation of excitement went with it. She felt like Indiana Jones exploring a lost tomb and waiting for a booby trap to jump out at her.
Her beam of light filtered into the room, and her heart crept higher in her throat. She rounded the edge of the wall and halted.
The cell was small without any windows, but this room appeared lived in. Along the far wall, below a pair of rusted pipes where a sink had once been, a green cot—army issue—had a pillow and green blanket neatly stacked on top. At the foot of the cot was a blue ice chest; on top of it, an assortment of red and white candles.
Leslie went up to the cot and caressed the blanket and pillows. Her foot tapped something beneath. She bent down and discovered an old CD player.
What’s this?
Footfalls came from behind her. She swerved the flashlight around to Derek, fuming.
“Did you do this?”
“Do what?” He shielded his eyes from the light and stepped inside.
She wanted to believe he had no idea any of this was here, but her suspicions couldn’t be silenced. The whole scenario seemed so well-planned.
“What the hell?” Derek came up to the cot and lifted the pillow.
She stood back, studying his reaction as he browsed the contents of the room. “I thought you said this portion was dangerous.”
“It is.”


Review by Barbara

OMG OMG OMG… what an amazing read! I have absolutely no idea where to start with all the things I Loved about this book!!! Let me start by saying Huge Kudos to the authors. They have teamed up and brought us an intriguing storyline that will keep you on the edge of your seat and all but shock the heck out of you at many twist.

Beau is a very spoiled rich kid with serious problems. issues that his parents have done everything in their power to cover up because to Beau’s father, image is power. Out of feared for what his father would do to him if people saw his true self, Beau has perfected the perfect young man routine when he’s in public, at school and on the football field. But Beau is anything but a “good young man”. Due to his manipulative ways, Beau rules everything around him. He Lords over everyone and is determined to let nothing stop him from getting what he wants. The only person in his way of having it all is his domineering father, at least for now.

Most kids all seem to have their special hangout spot and for Beau and the kids in his school it the River and the remains of the Abbey. This is one place Beau feels free to be himself, especially in the Abbey cells, where Beau has a special room he likes to bring his dates. A place he secretly longs to bring Leslie, his girlfriend Dawn’s twin sister who he secretly longs for. But Leslie is one of the few people that hates Beau and sees him for the monster he really is.

As events start happening around him, Beaus paranoia builds and he starts to lose control. What happens when the world starts getting glimpses of the real Beau? Is anyone safe from the real Beau? What about his friends and fellow students of St. Benedict High? They may look like normal kids but are they really or do they all have secrets? Have the myths about the Abbey come to pass or are they simply ole wives tales?

I Highly Highly Highly Recommend this gripping story. In my humble opinion it is beyond amazing, a definite Must Read and easily a 20 Star Read (something I don’t think I’ve felt about a book in ages if ever at all). Grab this one up ASAP fellow readers, you will be so glad you did!!!! 

Review by Kathy

What an OUTSTANDING! An absolutely captivating story line, filled with mystery and intrigue, this story will have you spell bound and will not release you from it's clutches until you reach the end...which I must say I was not expecting that ending at all. Spectacular!

This story about high school seniors waiting to finish their senior year, doing what all seniors do, study, go to football games on Friday nights, hang out and party with their friends, has one central character that is a narcissistic psychopath. Never have I read such a character before in YA story, but my lord..this boy was totally warped and terrifying. The story revolves around the lead characters, Leslie and Dawn Moore(twin sisters) and Beau Devereaux, closely supported by Leslie's boyfriend Derek Foster. Beau is the boyfriend of Dawn, and he is a piece of work. The boy is the quarterback of the football team - she is the head cheerleader. His family owns almost everything in town, but is know for the brewery and their wealth, as well as their donations to different things in the small town. Beau's father is a hard man and expects his troubled son to walk a fine line, never let the people see his true self, always remember the reputation of himself and the family. Never do anything to tarnish the name of his family. Always charming, Beau has another side of him that is truly dark and sinister, one that no one knows about, until he begins to show a couple of girls a good time in "his" cell at the Abby. He gets high off of their fear, off of the pain he inflicts, off of their struggles. The one he really wants is Leslie. In his head, she is to be his to do what he wants, to show her that she is his.

Soon, Beau finds it hard to maintain his control over everything as his paranoia begins to get the better of him and he begins to implode. His life begins to spiral out of control but his father steps in and punishes him, takes away his freedom. Beau is almost sure two of his victims have talked to each other and he is almost sure they have talked to Leslie, and this infuriates him even more. He needs to amp up his game and get the girl he has dreamed of having for so long. He can hardly wait to sense her fear, to smell her blood.

These characters are quite impeccably written with so much detail into their personalities and their backgrounds. These are normal teenagers, but then again, no they aren't.

A well written dynamic read that will have you telling all of your friends about it. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
