Cover Re-Reveal for Sleeper and Awakened by Amy Brock McNew

Sleeper – Once the beast is awakened, she can’t be chained.
A throne with no ruler.
A beast stretching awake.
A goddess unleashed.
Makenna is a self-proclaimed freak with abilities she can’t control. She’s clawed her way through life, fighting to maintain her sanity. Her lonely existence has only fed the vicious animal within her, one she barely contains and doesn’t understand.
Rhys has prepared since birth to be alpha and king of an ancient race of wolves. Instead, he leads half a fractured clan against a depraved madman. But victory begins to slip through Rhys’s fingers. Only one thing can save them. A single requirement for him to claim the throne:
Bonding with his mate, the one warrior queen born to each generation, the incarnation of a primal warrior goddess who holds more power than any of them can imagine.
When Rhys finds Makenna, he believes the battle has shifted in his favor. He never imagined his heart would want her as much as his body. While Makenna is drawn to Rhys with terrifying intensity, his arrival triggers an acceleration in her abilities, the beast within her rising to the surface. 
Will discovering the truth give Makenna the peace she craves, or will it ignite a savage escalation in the war, drenching their lives in blood? 
Awakened –  A goddess enraged leaves only ashes in her wake.   https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GJXRBK7 

Sometimes, being queen royally sucks.
Makenna has embraced her true self and taken her rightful place as Alpha at Rhys’s side. But learning how to live as mates in the midst of a raging war proves more difficult than anything she’s faced. That is, until the goddess stretches fully awake, taking control and burning everyone in her path.
But that fiery power may come in handy to battle Kylian’s diabolical plans. Using dark magic that shouldn’t be possible, he’s torn a hole in the fabric of reality and put their kingdom in more danger than ever.
As Makenna fights the rising power within, her entire world crashes down around her. Secrets are revealed and hearts broken when an unlikely ally presents them with an impossible choice to end the war. When the truth comes to light, it will challenge everything they believe. Leaving them to face an agony they could never have imagined.
The bonds of family and pack are tested to their limits. Nothing is what it seems, and loyalty is strained to the breaking point. Can Rhys and Makenna hold on to each other and solidify their bond while reclaiming their throne? Or will the truth be more devastating than lies, tearing them apart forever?   

Both are available in KINDLE UNLIMITED!



Heat Stroke Cover & Blurb Reveal

How about an impromptu Cover Reveal today?!

Cover and Blurb Reveal for Heat Stroke.

RELEASE DATE: August 5, 2019

Beautiful cover by: Megan J Parker-Squiers/ Emcat Designs

Heat Stroke Blurb:




a condition marked by fever and often by unconsciousness, caused by failure of the body’s temperature-regulating mechanism when exposed to excessively high temperatures

For too many years Blaze Carrington riled me up. Just the sight of his smug, perfect face made my blood boil. And, he knew it.

He’d goad me… taunt me… push my buttons.

I knew that he knew and that only annoyed me further. As kids, and then teenagers, he’d torment me relentlessly.

The angrier I’d get, the smugger he’d become.

Everyone loved him, but not me.

I just wanted to punch him in the face girls fawned over.

Then, he left for college. My life calmed. I was able to breathe and live my life without the chaos known as Blaze.

I was happy…

Only now, he’s back. My blood is once again heating at the mere thought of Blaze Carrington.

But this time, I feel feverish and it’s not with anxiety or ire…

This time, it’s desire…

**Will be available on Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and KOBO.

Only now… she’s back.
He sees the front she presents to the town and everyone they know, but he knows she’s hiding something.

“5 Stars
An Emotionally Charged Read
“An emotional charged story of how love can lead to redemption from the demons of war. Skye Turner does a great job of giving the reader exactly what they need to feel the pain Luka most go through to realize that what he needs most to help his broken wounded soul has been right in front of him along. Rea’s battle to bring Luka back to the man he was before the mission is a great example of the type of love everyone searches for but some never get a chance to find. The Chemistry between the two is that slow burn that is always right there under the surface no matter where they are or who else happens to be around. I really enjoyed the emotional journey that Rea and Luka take us on to Battle to bring Luka back from the brink . looking forward to the next stories in the series.”

Rookie Love


Rookie Love Blurb:

Jase Stevens has a life and career that are heading in one direction… up. His career as the pitcher for the Baton Rouge Gris Gris, the baseball farm team, is garnering him national attention as a major league contract seems to be rapidly approaching. His love life is also not lacking. His devilish good looks and southern charm have women flocking to him both on and off the baseball diamond.
Cally Cooper loves her life and takes pride in the fact that she helps animals that otherwise might be lost due to irresponsible owners and neglect. She runs Love & Paws, a non-profit, no-kill animal rescue center. The animals fill her life with purpose and her heart with love, though lately she finds herself yearning for the love of a good man as well.
After one night of celebration, Jase is arrested and charged with a DUI. Community Service at the Love & Paw’s animal rescue center is part of his sentence.
Neither Cally nor Jase are happy about the situation, but neither have a choice in the matter.
Both have preconceived ideas of what the other is like, but as they spend more time together, a spark of attraction takes them by storm. Will they realize that maybe they misjudged each other?
When two people find something they didn’t know they needed, will they embrace it or run from it?
Are they willing to take a chance on love or will the idea of opening yourself up to something you never expected have them both running from Rookie Love?
***This book is intended for those 18 and older. It contains graphic language and adult content. Those against those things should NOT read!


“Perfection. The perfect balance of romance and story to entrance every reader.” J. Ross, WSJ, USA Today, and NYT Bestselling Author
“Not your average baseball story. It will have you swooning one minute and hot and bothered the next.” H. D’Agostino, Author

“5 Stars
Homerun from Skye Turner
Rookie Love by Skye Turner, such a great little book! I was impressed, being this was my first read from Skye, but nonetheless so happy with the way Rookie Love turned out. Skye does a great service to readers by putting the character’s inner dialogue in italics, and making it so funny and snarky, that I looked forward to whatever Cally and Jase had to say.
The chemistry was instant, but still not as rushed as some I’ve seen, and I liked that they were still able to have some ‘get to know each other’ time before hitting the sheets. The bedroom scenes were hot, and well written, another great factor from Skye that I liked. The romance progressed at a great stage and everything about their relationship was believable.
I did like how the beginning, with Jase getting community service, wasn’t glossed over, making his character ever more real to me. And I liked how Cally was snarky and almost mean to him at the beginning, it showed that sometimes characters do act like real life people. It also was cute how she turned things around and begin to fall into lust, then love with him.
Skye writes with heart and heat! Jase and Cally’s relationship burned from the pages, they spark immediately but still retain that innate, real vibe that pulls you in! Rookie Love was an amazing little jewel of a book!”

Review of Sands of Time by Heather D’Agostino

Sands of Time Blurb:

Kaitlyn Hughes always wanted to run her own bakery. After attending culinary school in Paris, she began working under one of the best chefs in the business and fell in love. Life was perfect, or so she thought. When her parents ask her to come home for the holidays, she decides to take a much-deserved vacation with support and encouragement of her boss. Five years away does something to you. It messes with your memory and makes you believe that you don’t miss the things that you do. You don’t realize it until its too late. When Kaitlyn unexpectedly runs into Eli Baker, the one she left behind, all bets are off. Promises are forgotten. What ifs roar to life, and what seemed like a dream soon becomes a nightmare. Does absence really make the heart grow fonder? How much are you willing to give up for true love? This book contains profanity and graphic sexual encounters. It is intended for adult readers.

My Review:


I loved Sands of Time by Heather D’Agostino.

This is the perfect summer read.

Kaitlyn and Eli are both relatable characters and Heather writes in a way that involves the reader and makes us feel las if we’re friends with the characters and a part of the story.

This is a second chance (or third) romance. It’s a destined-to-be together love story, but, it’s not typical.

Kaitlin is a strong female who has dreams and fully intends to bring them to fruition, even at the sake of losing love.

Eli is guarded with good reason though he cannot deny his feelings.

The emotion was heartfelt. The romance was swoon worthy. And, the sex was well written.

If you’re looking for a lighthearted, quick summer read, grab Sands of Time. You won’t be disappointed.

It’s a page turner.

One of Heather’s best books!

Easily a 5 star read for me.

Sands of Time is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

COVER REVEAL for UN-Christmas by Skye Turner

Hey y’all.

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve had a Cover Reveal. Hell, it’s been awhile since I’ve had a release.

I’m so excited to show y’all the cover and drop the Blurb for my NEW book, UN-Christmas, RELEASING, Thursday, November 29, 2018. 

UnChristmas eCover


UN-Christmas Blurb

Christmas… the time of year when everything is shiny and bright. Music blares from store speakers. People pretend to be jolly when they’d just as soon smother you with glittery wrapping paper and everyone professes false goodwill and love for their fellow man.

No, thank you.

Rose Devillier knows the truth of the matter. It’s all a sham. It’s just another way for corporations to make a buck by shoving their fabricated cheer down everyone’s throats. After all, two Christmas’s ago… all illusions about the season of faith, love, and giving were destroyed… Like glass bulbs falling from tree branches to explode all over the floor, nothing left behind but shattered memories.

Noah Warren has always had Rose’s back. Best friend and confidant since diapers, and, now her assistant, he’s always been whatever Rose has needed him to be.

Only now she wants to head to a cabin in the wilderness for most of December to escape the trappings of the holidays… she wants an UN-Christmas.

Can Noah convince Rose that one bad memory doesn’t define an entire holiday? Can the magic of the holidays open not just her eyes, but her heart?

What happens when her greatest gift of the season is realizing that she only thought she hated Christmas?

**This is an adult romance book and contains adult experiences, explicit language, and graphic sex scenes not suitable for all readers. Intended for those over the age of 18.

COVER REVEAL: Gillian Zane’s Survive

I’m so excited to share my dear friend, Gillian Zane’s, Survive, the first book in her NEW spin-off series, Cajun Zombies.


Title: Survive

Series: Cajun Zombies Book 1 (NOLA Zombie Spin-off)

Author: Gillian Zane

Releasing: 11/12/18

More Info: books2read.com/cajunzombie


Gillian Zane brings zombies back! Set in the same world as her NOLA Zombies, you’ll go back to day 1 of the apocalypse with the Cajun Zombies… 

What do you do when the U.S. military starts gunning down infected civilians in the streets? You…BUG OUT.

Captain Samantha Smith of the United States Army is on a mission to transition out of the military and get a real job. As a mercenary. The problem is, there’s a virus messing with her ability to get to Southern Louisiana and interview for the job. Flights are grounded, there’s rumors about New York being under quarantine, and now she’s forced to drive from Colorado Springs to the Godforsaken environment that is the Louisiana coastline. 

The virus isn’t supposed to be a big deal, though. Or so the news says. As Sam gets closer and closer to the city, things get steadily worse. The iKPV virus might be running rampant in New Orleans. As chaos takes hold of the world around her, Sam steps up to command. She teams up with two soldiers who bring loyalty and stability to an uncomfortable mission that no one prepared them for as the military breaks down around them. Their new mission: Survive.

About Gillian Zane:

Gillian Zane is an Amazon bestselling author that specializes in genre fiction for adults. At the age of ten, she decided she would be a writer and has been determined ever since. Between that decision and when she actually finished a book, she’s served in the military, became a cog in the corporate marketing wheel as a person “that makes things pretty” and has been laid-off too many times to count. She writes full-time, but still continues to “make things pretty” by designing book covers and websites for her fellow authors and bloggers.


Sierra Burgess is a Loser Movie REVIEW

Sierra Burgess is a Loser REVIEW

It’s that time… the time when I, Skye Turner, Internationally Bestselling author of Adult Romance Books reviews a Netflix movie.

Sierra Burgess is a Loser dropped a few days ago on Netflix. It’s another YA Rom Com and I was all over that.

Add in the fact that Noah Centenio is in it as Jamey, the loveable quarterback with a deaf little brother, and there was just no way I was skipping it. (He’s my current cougar crush and he will always be my Peter Kavinsky. If you have no idea what I’m talking about… DO YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK?! and immediately go watch To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before… on Netflix. You’re welcome.)

Ok, back to Sierra Burgess now. Sierra is a girl with serious teenage insecurities. She’s not stick thin and popular. She has one real friend, who is totally awesome and I want to be BFF’s with him, and is a band geek with serious smarts. She’s targeted by the “mean girl” and looked over by pretty much everyone else.

Veronica is the “mean girl”. She’s gorgeous, popular, and totally in charge. Or is she?!

Purely by chance, Sierra starts a technology “relationship” with Jamey. Jamey thinks he’s talking to Veronica.

Sierra and Veronica work together to catfish Jamey because both have something the other needs. Sierra has brains. Veronica has looks.

The movie itself is pretty cliche. It’s like every other YA movie, however… I really enjoyed it.

Can polar opposites become friends?! Can the band geek actually end up with the quarterback?! And, can Sierra learn to love herself as she is?!

It’s a good message although Sierra isn’t overtly likable as a character. She IS a teenager though, so it’s understandable.

Jamey is EVERY teenager girl (and 38+ year old woman’s) crush.

Watch the movie. Swoon over Jamey/Noah. And, remember what it’s like to be a teenager.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4.5 STARS)

More Noah please, Netflix!

Just because I like him… enjoy some of Noah as Peter Kavinsky. 😉

Why are you still reading this instead of watching Netflix?!
