Cover Reveal: James Black by Skye Turner

James Black, the hottest name in Hollywood. Blockbuster films, tabloid headlines, and broken hearts surround this golden playboy.  Avangeline Price, a strong willed, tough as nails, zero tolerance for games woman who believes love only exists in books and movies.  James is accustomed to women falling at his feet. Avangeline has an intense dislike of celebrities and an even bigger dislike of James Black. 

She's unimpressed. He's intrigued. Both have preconceived notions.

But… sometimes the unscripted territory is what matters most.

When Hollywood meets Louisiana, can real life rival the movies?

Snake Eyes
By Melissa Pearl
January 30, 2015

Caitlyn Davis expects her sophomore year at UCLA to be perfect...until she walks into her dorm room to find Special Agent Zoey Kaplan of the FBI waiting for her. In that instant, she knows her idyllic year with new best friends, Nicole and Dale, along with her super hot boyfriend, Eric, is about to fall apart.

Having been forced to work with the FBI months earlier, Caity accidentally gave away her special ability to read people's emotions and know whether they were telling the truth. Now, Kaplan wants Caity to go undercover again for a secret operation that will bring her close to the sadistic Diego Mendez, a man believed to be involved in human trafficking.

Eric Shore is not a man who trusts easily. Having been burned multiple times, it’s hard for him to open up completely, but his love for Caity makes him want to try. Yet, her sudden withdrawal worries him, particularly when she chooses to spend time with her new roommate, Quella Mendez, over him. When Caity’s behavior begins to match that of her wild roommate, Eric wonders if their relationship is as strong as he believed.

As Caity struggles to maintain her relationship and do her job, she finds herself pulled further into a dangerous world that could take away everything she holds dear. Will Eric learn the truth in time to save her? Or will the man with the eyes of a snake destroy their perfect romance?

This is the third book in The Mask series. I couldn't put this book down. It has suspense in it. There is a small amount of danger where you jut suck your breath in and you don't even realize that you are holding it. 

I need to read more of what happens. I need to see what is going to happen with Caitlyn. I know this is a short review, but I don't want to give away anything. Just let me tell you this, this book will pull at your heart. It will test your strength to not want to yell and scream at the FBI agent yes, she is back, and she is on a very dangerous mission, and doesn't care who gets injured or killed in the process!

Get this book, if you haven't started this series, you are missing out!!!

Blog Tour: Paris Hemsworth's Road to Wonderland by Francesca Marlow

Book: Paris Hemworth’s Road to Wonderland
Author: Francesca Marlow
Genre: New Adult

‘Paris Hemsworth’s Road To Wonderland’ is the second novel in a new adult series, which tells the tale of a seventeen-year-old girl's tragedy. A tragedy that steers her down an unlikely path full of twists and turns. Paris is a naive, feisty fashionista who floats, carefree, through her life in 1990’s Manchester, thanks to her three great loves: her father, her best friend, and her motorbike. Izzy Moffit is a shy, quiet, literature lover who has been surrounded by violence daily, seeking solace in movies and music. The two are an unlikely duo, but since the age of four, they have been inseparable, always promising to be there for each other no matter what. 
That is until one day Paris receives heart-shattering news which turns her life upside-down. Suddenly, their friendship is tested in ways it never has before, and just when things are starting to look up for them, adulthood steps in and kicks them both in unimaginable ways. Paris is forced into a life full of fear, guilt and doubt, which sees her evolve from the feisty, fun young girl she once was into something she never thought she’d be. Weak. Having hit rock bottom, Paris is left with two options: climb the ladder back up or continue to swim in the sea of despair. The first option is easier said than done when you have no hope or faith left, when the loves of your life have all moved on, and you think you’re alone in the world. In the war against addiction, Paris knows it is only a matter of time before something has to give, but she is unable to predict at what cost.

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

This is the first book that I have read by Francesca Marlow. I started this book going in blind, I didn’t read the blurb or synopsis, and I normally don’t, this book was a little slow to read. It wasn’t just at the beginning, it was through the whole book. I am giving this book 4 stars. Despite the slowness of the book, it was an interesting story. The subjects in the book are harsh. They are subjects that we normally hear about, but when you are reading about Paris, you start to feel like she is part of your family. So when you are reading, you feel that you need to protect her, and there were times that I was yelling at my Kindle when I felt that she was doing something that she shouldn’t have been. 

Francesca knows how to put the emotion into a book. I cried several times in this book. And not just small tears, these were flowing, big crocodile tears. I understood the why, but way she was going about it trying to make her feel better. The one constant that Paris has is Izzy. Her best friend through it all. They are there for each other when they need one another. 

The one thing that I was not happy with was the way that Paris’ mom just kind of abandoned her. The mom took a new man friend, and kept telling Paris that she needs to grow up and stop being a spoiled brat. Well, my opinion, is when something tragic happens, and you have been the only child, you are going to be a tad on the spoiled side. The mom though, she was more spoiled. 

I want to read what Francesca puts out next. I want to read more of the wonderland that Paris is looking for. I wouldn’t call this a HEA, although I could see where it is one in the end. Read this book. You will enjoy it!! 


Francesca is a self-confessed drifter, never quite fitting in anywhere until she discovered the love of reading two years ago. Books proved to be non-judgemental, loyal and thought provoking, so much so that she was inspired to create her own world. A world where she could channel her every day thoughts and emotions to deal with the daily grind which we call ‘life’. Francesca’s biggest accomplishments to date are the two little ladies that share her heart, closely followed by the one thing she is very proud to say: “I wrote a bloody novel!” She’s a Yorkshire lass and a secret romantic at heart, with an eclectic taste in music and a great love for films - all of which continue to be a source of creativity as well as well deserved relaxation moments.
