Oh' Tequila #3 Series / NA Contemporary Romance 
Available on Amazon & KU from Limitless Publishing

I should have known this would happen...

Nothing about my Fraternity was ever simple. Parties, tequila – tons of tequila – and wild souvenirs from our kind of crazy.

Never, and I do mean never, did I expect my brother’s girl to target me in a midnight prank. A prank that backfired and left me squealing in pain.

Have you ever seen those shows, the ones that say the “dirty deed” sent you to the ER? Well, I went to the ER and yes, my manhood was involved. Let me just say, I gained absolutely no pleasure from it. Unless, of course, you consider that sweet nurse who treated me.

The problem? She hated me...and I had no idea why, but I wasn’t willing to let her walk away until I figured it out.

Emelie was feisty and I’d never felt the type of excitement I did after spending only five seconds in her line of fire. I was gonna enjoy this...way more than I should, and I knew it.

She saw, she conquered, and I was defeated. 
All it took was just one touch and oh, what a ride it was.



“Ethan,” I said, holding a tiny bear between my fingers. “Buddy, are you hungry?” I was practically begging my son to pay attention to me and stop idolizing the man who held him.

I held the bear closer and kind of shook it in between him and Clayton where he was still staring. Please just eat the thing and give us all something new to focus on.

“Ethan,” I said his name once more, and before I could register what was happening, Clayton wrapped his lips around the tips of my fingers and consumed the teddy graham. “Num num,” he said to Ethan, yet he was looking at me. “That’s yummy.”

She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes...thankfully. 

She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better...that quietness changes, fast.

Blog Review

This is book three in the Oh Tequila series and each can be read as a standalone. While you do see crossover characters you are never felt left out of anything that may occur at this fraternity house and boy these antics and pranks just keep getting better and more hilarious (OK even more ouch-full too) as you read each book in this series. I fell in love with each book and characters, but for some reason I have to say while all the others had a touching story this one melted my heart a little more. There were so many topics portrayed in this story that your heart melted one minute and burned the next and it wasn’t the Tequila doing the burning this time.
It’s Clayton’s turn to get a story and boy for those of us who may have judged him even a little bit as a typical frat boy, think again once you read this story we see a side of Clay that touches your heart with that One Touch and those actions. Don’t get me wrong he was still a comedic with the frat boys and the girlfriends who may just be better at the pranks than the boys, just saying.
Emelie is the ER nurse and oh the things she sees is something many people would be embarrassed to know they just became a story in the making after she tends to them. She is not only feisty she is driven, and she doesn’t let her background stop her from succeeding in life and her career. You may even tear a time or two with her story. The things Clayton does to develop even a friendship with her is touching and heartfelt and attempts to keep him away for the right reasons, but she can self-doubt the feelings all she wants cause you will see he isn’t your typical frat boy and Palmer just may the one to help her see this.
Palmer her BF is a true and faithful friend to Emelie. She never judges Emelie and is her back bone in many things, I’ll say it best to avoid spoilers. Palmer and the other frat twin have a story whether it was a touch, a shot of Tequila or a prank, but there is a story going on there, so we can only hope that they either end up next in the series or that if they don’t end up together that we get a double story on these secondary characters.
There is not a book by CA that you do not fall in love with or take a story away with you, but this may just be my favorite in this series or by her in general and that’s tough cause she has never disappointed us with these stories she writes and no two of her books are ever the same in any series she writes. I love her as an author and one of these days I will get a chance to read all her books not just some of each series. 

Title: Kandiland
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 19, 2018 Cover Designer: RBA Designs Cover Photographer: Perrywinkle Photography

He was forbidden, my boss and incapable of loving me.
People talked about him, whispered about him in passing.
He was the king of his town.
And I was a visitor.
I was by no means a smart girl. Never loved with my head, always with my heart.
That fact alone almost killed me once.
I should have listened the second time around.
But the king of this small town, had me starving. Had me craving his taste.
My name is Kandi, and he called me his Kandiland.
The king declared I was his medicine, and with each dose, he became better and better.
He was the perfect liar.
And I was his perfect Kandi.
Together, we were explosive, and toxic in every way.


Huxley may be the King, but Kandi is his kryptonite in his world of control. Two broken people that share an intense connection and while some of the past has a common ground the actions of control and independence of these two show you that inside every small town there is a story that is meant to be freed. This wasn’t just your typical worker fling, it had the suspense, mystery and that explosive toxic relationship that TL weaves into one to make your heart race and wonder if you are going to survive where its going or if the roller coaster will take you down completely.   The work of art that weaves the guts and love into one is what makes us fall in love with TL’s writing. I can never get enough of her work and while it wasn’t as dark as her other books, she definitely rocked this change up. TL may be going soft on us, haha Kidding it was a subtle way to hook new readers into her dark world if this was their first read. There is not a book by her that you will not fall in love with, trust me!

The Beast of Aubyn Hall by Alex L. Michaels

Link on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2rOuAR0
On Goodreads: https://bit.ly/2Jgvpt7


The man they call the beast, sworn off love, meets the bookish beauty who thinks that love exists only in books.
When Bronte Beltran finds out that her next assignment is cataloging the famous Aubyn Hall library, she's ecstatic. But when she finds out they call the owner the Beast of Aubyn Hall, not so much. A week in a dusty library should be right up her alley. But a wrong word at the wrong time and she might just find out what exactly is beastly about the Beast of Aubyn Hall.

Blogs Review:

Caine “The Beast” and Bronte “The Bookworm” is what we call the modern-day Beauty and the Beast. It was quite funny after I thought of this duo to be resemblance of the movie and the author calls them the same thing. Who wouldn’t want a library like Aubyn Hall? It is every booklovers dream, but you will see that the reasoning for Bronte and her clan to set up a library isn’t for what we think, and it shows you that even Beastly men have softer sides for good reasons. If you read book one, you got the Island Clue with some Stone throwing to cure your Writers Block and, in this story, we get the Beast and the Bookworm. There is a cameo second (literally) that is awesome and if you didn’t read book one you wouldn’t even know it, but for those of us who have read both books it was an added touch and nice bonus for that second, we saw them.
This story will hold your attention and not only cause of the dreamy library, but for the suspense and reasoning as to why Caine has hired this clan. You see the spark immediately between the Beast and the Bookworm and no matter how many times you make a fool of yourself and try to remain professional sometimes you need to “let it go” and be free to be yourself. The banter between the library clan was hilarious as was the Butler. Each book so far has been very entertaining and while we know that there is a third book coming down the road it will be interesting to see how the author relates this to entertainment is how I will best say this. Love how the mystery plays into an Island and a Library!

Review: Returned to the Light

Returned to the Light Returned to the Light by C.M. Radcliff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the sequel to When Darkness Consumes and you must read that first before reading this book. This story takes place two years later and while some may feel that is a long gap, trust me it makes sense as you read this book on why there is a gap. I’ll just say that it took that long for our broken hearts to heal even though we didn’t have to wait two years for this book (haha). I’m so glad that the author decided to write more on Ryder and Lydia cause she probably could have ended it on book one and left it as was even though with all the bad that happened it satisfied you, but we all know they had more of a story to give us. We had a lot of Q & A’s, but we weren’t sure if “the day she came back to me was the same day I lost her” was enough to pacify us as readers and if Ryder and Lydia were ever made to go beyond this factor. Ryder and Lydia’s story is not complete and the secrets are far from over.
Lydia’s darkness consumed you in book one and returning home was just as consuming and you feel the fear of knowing that with all good things must come the bad so what’s going to occur in this story. Oh, you just wait for it cause these lips are sealed! Pure torture, but you will see how far she has grown as well as the horrible events that she endured.
Ryder was never really perfect, but he is more of a mess than ever now with Lydia gone. Lydia’s ghosted memories and revenge on Subway boy doesn’t him heal. You see the mixed emotions he goes through before, during and after the return of Lydia. A lot of changed, but their love never was far even though they were far away. No one is perfect let alone a relationship, but once all the suspense and secrets are prevailed you will see that there is light at the end of a tunnel after all. I will say though that whether it was or wasn’t didn’t matter from the moment Ryder finds out a little something, but my heart is happy and then some with the results. Sorry that it is vague, but this is not a spoiler to be spoken until you read the story. Trust me though it’s worth the wait cause you see a softer side of Ryder.
We saw the Darkness in book one and in this book we see the Light to heal our hearts. Love that it was told from dual POV and we couldn’t ask for a better ending to these two characters. Hopefully we see them down the road!
