I live, train, fight and f*ck hard. And if she wants to become a star she’s going to have to do everything I say.
I’m Hollywood’s best kept secret and I’ll do anything to keep it that way.
No one can know all the bad sh*t I did to become the world’s most dangerous stuntman.
All your favorite action heroes were trained by me, but I’m no hero. I’ve made a thousand mistakes in my life.
The biggest one was saving Autumn Moore.
Now, because of a viral video, I’m being blackmailed into doing the impossible. I have one month to take this geeky, starry-eyed YouTube celebrity, and make her a bad ass leading lady.
I expected her to fall apart when I got my hands on her.
What I never expected was her strength.
Her beautiful innocence threatens every lie I’ve told myself about happiness not being for me. When I’m with her, I can feel parts of my heart that I thought were numb.
But it doesn’t matter. The dark past I’ve been trying to outrun is about to show up on my doorstep.
When it does, it’ll destroy us both.
Breaking Autumn is a standalone, full-length romance with a HEA and NO cliffhangers or cheating. It’s a white-knuckled, screaming hot, sex-fueled thrill ride into the dangerous world of film and stunts and was written by a real life professional stuntman, American Ninja Warrior athlete and (as of this book) cover model!

Straight up and Dirty by Stephanie Klein

Jolene’s  Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My thoughts :

Straight up and Dirty is a book that I’ve turned to year after year. It’s been my go to bowl of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream – the late night phone call to my girlfriends – the wine that chills me the fuck down when I think life couldn’t get any worse, the words on the pages have become that soft, cuddle blanket, the foot that kicks me in the ass and says, “Shit could be worse now get the fuck up and take a shower.” and no this isn’t one of those self help books claiming to reshape your life with cheesy affirmations, no this is real life. This is her life.

Straight up and Dirty has seen me through 1 ½ marriages and a couple douchebag boyfriends. I’m surprised that I’m not sitting next to Stephanie Klein somewhere in a cozy little joint in NYC sharing friendships gone bad, marriage and relationship war stories….because shit, we have plenty to get us through a few appetizers, the entrée, desert and a few after dinner drinks…..hell, we’d probably close the joint down.

I came across Stephanie years ago while surfing the internet when I was still foreign to the term  “blogger”, I was amazed at how raw one person could be. I truly admired her ability to just throw her life out for all of us to read. I was thankful.

I wasn’t alone.

Here she was displaying her life, her trials, her kick ass-grab the world by the balls moments and not giving two fucks what people thought. I loved it. That’s when I stared at the countless journals I had lying next to my bed with my life, my trials, my kick ass moments written on those pages and thought how therapeutic it would be to just put it all out there. Maybe my story, my deep dark moments could possibly help someone. That’s when I became a blogger and that’s when I picked up Straight up and Dirty.

Straight up and Dirty is a memoir, the story of a blogger, writer turned author. It’s a story about survival during a marriage that ended in betrayal, coping with a mother in law that could rival any villainess in a Disney flick, it’s about picking yourself up after divorce and rediscovering your self-worth while throwing yourself back into the sea of dating (again and again), it’s about still having hope after those small penis moments and knowing things could be worse. I mean, you could be Minetti, the small penis man that made it into a book.

(excerpt)

Minetti. His last name even sounds like it means” small penis” in Italian. You know he’s doing the best with what he’s got; you feel it in the stubble of his pubes. You’re certain he’s trimming to make it look bigger. He must know he’s little. But he doesn’t have a fancy car or fancy voice. He’s genuine, and it’s sad because you can’t move past it.   

Take it from me, this book is a must read. It’s my Pride & Prejudice, my go to book when I just need to feel ……less alone and it’s hilarious!

You don’t believe me well ……. read on :

“Klein’s sense of humor is downright wicked…In the end, Klein’s is a great, fun read.” — Publisher’s Weekly

“50 Must Summer Reads” — Entertainment Weekly

“beneath the wisecracking tales of solo supermarket shopping, phone therapy and Hamptons houseshares, the raw emotion about her divorce and nightmare mother-in-law rings true. Plus, any girl who can pen such gems as, ‘I wanted to verb his noun’, deserves respect.” –Marie Claire UK

“Stephanie Klein is so gut-wrenchingly honest that it’s embarrassingly entertaining to read her oh-so-real stories, even if you haven’t experienced what she’s gone through” — Jane Magazine

“Popular blogger Stephanie Klein’s raw account of divorce at age 29 is refreshingly honest and funny without delving into cheesy chic-lit territory. You’ll easily relate to Klein– even if you don’t have a ‘wasband’” — Marie Claire, 10 Best To Do

Jolene’s  Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My thoughts :

Being a urban fantasy junkie, I’m still shocked that I hadn’t come across this book or this author, until now.  I mean, seriously she’s been around for quite a few years and while scrolling through Amazon and Goodreads, I was astounded……vampires, angels, demons….shit, where in bloody hell have I been?

Sure, I’ve been busy….well,  distracted with life and all its messed up glory but I could have found solace in the worlds Author Brenda K Davies creatively paints months ago. I could have fallen deeper into my book coma and hid away behind the pages instead of getting annoyed with the books that didn’t take me far away from my reality.

Let me just start by saying that Good Intentions was fucking fantastic!  Just imagine your world being flipped upside down, everything that you thought you knew and were told growing up, were lies or fabricated. The country that you love has been ripped apart by war (so you were told by news media) and now, it’s about survival. Until one day, you are traded for scrapes by your own mother and torn away from your family….it is then you learn the truth. The truth about your existence. The truth about good and evil. Angels and Demons. It is then you embark on your journey and realize your purpose. Ohhh and throw in a few sexy demons to boot.

See, pretty good shit.

 

One of my favorite moments:  This is between River and Kobal. Kobal his helping her tune into her abilities.

“Try harder.”

If she figured out how to harvest the life around her, I was fairly certain I’d be lying in the middle of the field a hundred feet from here. She couldn’t know her fire wouldn’t have an effect on me, but if she learned how to turn that pulse of life into a weapon, she’d have me on my ass, and with the look on her face right now, she may keep me there.

“I am trying!” she snapped. “Maybe you could show me a better way to do it instead of barking at me to feel the pulse and try harder! I’m not Luke Skywalker; I can’t just feel the force like he did.”

A stab of jealousy tore through me at the mention of another man. I’d never felt jealousy before, never expected to experience the searing heat tearing through my chest and making my blood boil. My claws extended and if he’d been standing before me, I would have killed him.

“Who is this Luke?” I demanded.

She rolled her eyes. “He was a character in a movie I saw once, years ago.”

“You humans and your infatuation with fictional characters.”

Her eyes narrowed on me. The shadows rimming them made their color a deeper almost midnight purple. “You demons and your dickhead comments.”

Could you share a bed with a smoking-hot stranger?
I’m stuck in my hometown with a depressing job and no future. So when my best friend asks me to drive all the way to NYC so I can be her maid of honor, I jump on the chance to escape. Or I would have, if my car hadn’t broken down. I’ve never been lucky. Then HE shows up—a guy straight out of a fitness magazine, wearing a sharp suit—and he actually fixes my engine. I’d love it if he’d fix a few other things of mine, but I’m in a rush. I don’t think I’ll see him again. Except here he is, staying at the same hotel as me. Turns out they lost my reservation. My mystery man offers to save the day again; I can sleep in my car and probably get arrested for it, or I can share his bed. He says nothing will happen between us… unless I want it to. I should know better than to hook up with someone I met 24 hours ago. I might regret this in the morning, but for once in my life? I just want to get lucky. Too bad I don’t know who this man really is. And when I find out… My whole world is going to change.

The only problem is I don’t have one… he dumped me, and they have no clue.

When he pulls that mistletoe out of his pocket I know he’s only looking to jingle my bells. Even so… it’s getting harder and harder to keep my hands off of him.

I only wanted him to play pretend, but after our not-so-silent night together…

I’m starting to want something real

The media calls me the Grim Reaper of Wall street.

I became the youngest billionaire in history because I’m ruthless—Bigger and Badder than my competition. That’s also why I know investing in this small town’s football stadium is a waste of my time.

What I didn’t know was that she was living here.

Judy is the girl that got away. I’ve thought about her for years; the night when we danced together… how she felt in my arms.

Now, I finally have a chance to make her mine. But doing so means going all in on an investment that’s doomed to fail.

And I never, ever fail.

Will she be the first person to make me?

This second chance love story has everything from a secret baby to a bad boy football player turned billionaire-bad-ass. This full length standalone has absolutely NO cheating and comes with a sexy, heart-wrenching HEA. Looking for more hot billionaire action? At the end of Bigger and Badder is the standalone prequel- Billionaire Takes All- which includes a brand new sexy as sin epilogue that’ll rock your world.

Reese King: Olympic medalist, underwear model, Greek god.
His body is chiseled from rock, sculpted by the weight room, and refined by water.
On a daily basis his skin is completely bare for everyone to see, tan and defined, only covered up by a minuscule piece of spandex. There is no denying his sex appeal.
I hate to admit it, but I’m head over heels infatuated with him.
There is one HUGE problem though. His achingly gorgeous abs, inked up arm, and cocky swagger belong to my boss, the high-profile, reality star bitch from hell and certified heinous human being, Bellini Chambers.
What I think is going to be an easy job assisting a glorified wench turns into a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.

For some, the kitchen represents a sanctuary of the senses—a mergence of soul and sustenance that licks at the flesh while teasing the mind’s pleasure. To others, it’s but a steely hive of horror. And then there’s JESSICA AMES, a canned soup kind of girl in a land of haute cuisine whose aversion to culinary adventure once seemed all but incurable. But when she catches the eye of celebrity chef MARCO ADRIANO at a pretentious rooftop soiree, his uniquely sensual take on food whets an appetite that may just prove insatiable. If only they’d had more time…

Some devote a lifetime to the endless pursuit of love. Others spend even longer trying to outrun it. Between the shimmering lights of Paris and New Orleans’ commercialized sin, author J.D. Lexx embarks on his latest hunt. Once content to walk blindly in the light, these days he prowls a different world, one of shadow and sensuality where flesh yields to the probing hungers of fantasy. Driven by painful reminders of opportunity left unseized, he roams, tirelessly seeking the next in a growing collection of Crimson Confessions.
Yet these tales of conquest and seduction which have brought such notoriety are merely bait for a more transcendent prey. The one he truly stalks is infinitely more elusive, and lethal in her charms. To win her over, and write the happy ending to this unfinished story, an infamous collector of secrets must now lay his own bare for all to see. Chasing a trail of enticing exploits stretching from Sin City to Prague, every stop leads him back to the beginning…and one step closer to her.

My name is Parker Hale and I single handedly brought down a Dynasty.
For me, life has been a study in bad decisions and worse results.
My party boy days landed me with one foot in the grave, but Rebecca Sloan pulled me back from that ledge.
She’s here for me when I need her most and all I do is disappoint.
I’m scared to lose what we have.
I need to fix this mess before it’s too late.
There are fates worse than death.
I’m gonna prove it.
