**COVER REVEAL** Learing To Heal by RD Cole

Release Date: December 10, 2013
Cover Reveal Organized by: KRBB Tours & Promotions

"If fools rush in, than most people in love are idiots. And I'm the biggest one of all."

Meet Jasmine Coleman. She's the girl that's outgoing, beautiful, and full of self assurance. A confidence that's forced to cover the scars she hides. When rushing into love becomes a heartbreaking mistake the last piece of it disappears. Now she is left uncertain, weak and full of self disgust. But her strength is needed now more then before.
Mason Reed is the quiet computer geek that's always the friend and never the boyfriend. Putting his social life on hold to help his single mother has left him shy when it comes to the opposite sex. And meeting Jazz is no different. However being in love makes you do crazy things and his crazy has major consequences. Especially when the truth is revealed to others who are determined to rip them apart.
Rash decisions have major consequences. Some good. Some bad. All are life changing.
"The truth doesn't always set you free. Sometimes it breaks you apart and leaves you in pieces."

A knock on my window has me jumping out of my memory and out of my skin. Looking around I see i'm parked. Guess I was so out of it and involved in my daydream I don't even remember doing it. I turn toward the knocking and see Mason standing there with a concerned look on his cute face. I step out of the car and lock it, but don't make a move to walk toward him because his attire catches me off guard.

Instead of his usual logo t-shirt and jeans, he's wearing a dark green polo and fitted khaki pants. He's even sporting some Sperry's on his feet. Now it feels like a date cause we are both dressed up. However, I always dress up like this. 

Well, not exactly like this. I mean I don't always wear something so tight, but i'll be fat in a few months and won't be able to fit into it anymore. It's a mid thigh sweater dress with a scoop neck that's the same shade of pink as my lipstick. I have a thin brown belt around my waist and matching five-inch heeled boots that reach my calves. I decided against the tights though because I seem to be having hot flushes lately. 

We stand there for what feels like forever staring at one another. How did we go from comfortable conversation to uncomfortable silence? Before I can compliment on his clothes I hear someone call his name. I look in the direction at the same time he does and see a girl about my age or older with dark, brown hair in a stylish pixie cut walking our way. 

She's staring me down with her creepy golden eyes like I'm a threat. Oh hell no! I straighten my shoulders and do what I do best. Not take shit. I've never let anyone see my insecurites except for one and that will be the last time, because people like to play on your weaknessess. She finally looks toward Mason when she reaches us and smiles sweetly. "Here idiot. You almost left your phone" She hands it to him and bumps his shoulder with hers playfully. I see some type of relationship here, but i'm not sure if it's romantic one or not.

"Shit. Sorry about that." He turns towards me smiling and is completely unaware of the bitch stare this girl is still giving me. :Jazz this is Chanda. Chanda this is Jazz." Chanda? what kind of name is that? I internally slap myself for acting like I care. Because I shouldn't and don't. Only my friends call me Jazz and I have a feeling Chanda and I will not be a friend any time soon if ever. I stick out my hand gracing her with manners my parents raised me with. "Please call me Jasmine. Nice to meet you Chanda."

Ignoring my polite introduction and protruded hand she looks at Mason. "Remember, I need to be at work at midnight." Then she walks away. "Well she's lovely." I lower my hand and shake off the embarssment before I get back into my car. Watching Mason walk around to get in I fight down the urge to drive over Chanda while her backs turned. I have a feeling this won't be he last time the compulsion crosses my mind with that bitch.

My name is Robin and I live in Alabama. I grew up an army brat and traveled alot until we finally settled down along the Gulf Coast when i was 4. My husband is 9 years younger so I guess that makes me a COUGAR. I have a little girl who is 9 and is blind as well as autistic. My life is not boring with them two in it. Believe Me.
I have always loved creating and I would constanly draw on my walls. I love painting and reading. Writing is something I wanted to do but didn't think I could, until I woke up at three a.m a few months back and started writing. Life has a way of throwing rocks at you and putting cracks in you soul. Either you can duck and cover or you can make something beautiful from the cracks. After that, the story took over. Even though some pieces of my life experience are within it, it is Tru and Jax's story now. I have truly fell in love with this story and I hope you do too.

Review: Night Owl by M.Pierce

5 Stars
"I never want to learn how to say goodbye".
Love is unstoppable....

At twenty-eight Matt Sky has the perfect life. He has a beautiful girlfriend, a massive inheritance, and four national best sellers-all penned under his airtight alias, M.Pierce.

At twenty-seven Hannah Catalano has a train wreck. Her boyfriend is a deadbeat and her job is abysmal.

Matt and Hannah meet online as writing partners. Their relationship is safe, anonymous, and innocent...

Until Matt sees a picture of Hannah.

Hannah's picture sparks and attraction Matt is powerless to ignore. When circumstance brings Matt and Hannah together, the strangers begin a love story thats passionate, poignant, unforgettable, and unstoppable.

That was freaking awesome!!!!

The story is hot the sex is hotter, kinkier, and just plain scorching. M. Pierce that was a huge surprise, wasn't sure going in but right from the start I couldn't put the book down and read it in one sitting, paying for the lack of sleep today lol but so totally worth it.

It's a love story that has it's usual ups and downs and some that not everyone has to go through. You feel for Matt the reclusive writer and he is god damn hot and kinky!!! He has his share of demons which he tries to hide but you can't help but feel something for him, and Hannah I love having a strong female character you see her break down like anybody else would in that situation but she doesn't give up she wakes up and fights for what she wants and that's Matt.

The book doesn't have a cliffhanger in a sense it's wrapped but nicely and I loved how it ended and then I read the epilogue and was like WTF??? You can't end the book and then write the epilogue the way it was written but that's what makes this book more intense. It has me longing for the second book in this trilogy and cannot wait till it comes out supposedly in January which isn't to far but far enough!!

Great Job M.Pierce you have a fangirl right here!!!

Review: Bold Tricks by Karina Halle

5 Stars
"Beyond the ocean and the world and the stars. You're mine beyond that, baby, and I'm yours."

With more lives at stake and games in motion, Ellie, Camden and Javier form an uneasy alliance that will take them from the treacherous streets of inner-city Mexico to the wilds of the Honduran jungles in order to find their freedom. But with liberty just on the horizon, the cost might come at their own redemption. 

The final book in Karina Halle's The Artist's Trilogy starts where the second book Shooting Scars leaves us with the unlikely trio of Ellie, Camden and Javier just escaping Travis's compound and trying to outrun the cartel. Right from the start its all action and quite fast paced going from one thing to the other introducing new characters along the way. 

In this story you see Ellie start wising up and stop feeling sorry for herself over what happened and what her life turned out like, which was refreshing while still being the bad ass who will do anything for the people she cares about and loves.

The romance that Ellie and ???? rekindle is a big part of the story it isn't just helicopter chases, gun fights, car chases you name its probably in there at some point bombs and shit going off. You see Ellie recognize what life is about and what she is missing out on and decides from there that she needs to tell ???  that she loves him and needs to know if it is reciprocated. 

The ending like WOW through all the twists and turns whats going to happen or what you think and its completely not how you thought it was going to go down makes you keep wanting more and giving up everything for the day to see how its all winds down between the acts of revenge and betrayal and how you are loyal to the ones who deserve it.  

I love Karina's style of writing from all her books from the EIT series to this one she knows how to keep the story going and leaving her reader's hearts beating so fast you think your going to have a heart attack. Keep up the great work I will read any of your books and i'm constantly recommending them to all my friends. 

There isn't much else to say being the third book without giving spoilers away but if you haven't read this series i suggest you get on it fast and hard. The First in the series is Sins and Needles then Shooting Scars and finally Bold Tricks you don't know what your missing out on.

"I fucking need you and I need you to forgive me. I need that more than anything in the world! I need you to make me good."

Review: Games Of Fire by Airicka Phoenix

5 Stars
Sophie has enough problems in her life without Spencer turning her blood to fire, without his eyes freezing and burning her, without his hatred for her. Since his migration into the house next to hers, Sophia Valdez isn't sure whether she wants toss him under a bus or kiss that smirking mouth of his. But even as the temperature rises around them, leaping flames of passion, want and desire, everything either has ever known will be shattered by the lurking shadow hounding their every step, wanting revenge.

Spencer Rowth moves to the sleepy town of River Port with his mother and twelve year old sister, Suzy, to escape a deceitful father, an unfaithful girlfriend and a life crumbling much too fast for him to grapple onto only to be smacked upside the head by the last thing he wanted again. Sophie was everything he refused to want. Her temper, her wit, her laugh, her smile, the way her entire body goes up in flames under his hands are things he would rather slam a lid on and forget. Instead, he finds himself falling for the smart-mouth next door. But how long will he have before the evil chasing them catches up? How long before the very thing he never wanted becomes his only thread to sanity? And who is after them? What do they want and why do they want Spencer and Sophie dead?

I was sent a copy of Games Of Fire for a honest review.

Ok this book will have you going till the very end!! Wondering why life is getting in the way of you finishing this book because you do not want to put it down.
Ahh Spencer who sexy moody thing you  *Swoon*
He starts off being what Sophie would say a Jerk. A completely moody sexy jerk. Did I mention he has tattoos *Double Swoon* to go with his bad boy persona.
Then one day he cannot fight his feelings anymore and Sophie begins to break down the walls he has built up after being hurt by another chick who shattered him.

"The fiery trickle of outrage burned up her throat. "How the hell would you know that when you never gave me a chance?"
Something dark and scorching flickered behind his eyes. "Because no other girl has ever made me want to forget all my own rules for them"- Spencer

All the way through this shit is happening to them and you get glimpses of the psychos mind at the end of some of the chapters and crap can I say creepy!! The way they watched them stalked them did psycho things to mess them up. Made you want to read faster to see what would happen next and then the ending going to say it again Holy Shit!! As alot of it happens in YA books the banter back and forth between the characters was awesome. Sometimes it can feel forced but between Sophie and Spencer who felt the tension the good and the bad the way they gave it back to each other you were like' Yeah take that jerk face, and you take that blondie' lol. But the feelings that come across the page you feel them and makes you fall in love with them even more.

The ending OMG was freaking awesome you will have to read the book to find out more but would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves YA.

"His eyes were twin flakes of ember floating into the night from a roaring inferno.
"I won't let anything happen to you. No matter what i have to do, I will keep you safe."
