Blown Away
The Crimes of Passion Series Book 2
by Charlene Johnson


Genre: Romantic Suspense


Zack Daniels grew up in a rundown apartment complex off the Las Vegas Strip. At an early age, he learned to protect and support his mother and sister with determination and grit. After his sister is raped by the son of a local Russian mobster and commits suicide, he joins the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police to seek justice for her and to protect the public. 

When a high-profile executive is murdered in his best friend’s hotel, Zack is assigned to track down the killer. The sole witness to the murder is a beautiful high-priced escort. He must let go of his vendetta against his sister’s rapist to work the case. 

Sonnet Banks goes to the wrong hotel room and witnesses a murder. She is stunned. She knows the killer. He’s someone from her past. Someone she hoped to never see again. 

During her police interview, Sonnet tells Zack she doesn’t recognize the killer, but Zack is convinced she’s lying. Zack needs the lovely, evasive woman to tell him what she knows and is willing to use seduction to get it. Yet, was it still seduction when all he could do was think about her? 

Zack Daniels is so hot he makes Sonnet’s knees weak. He checks every box for her. Every box. But even if he wasn’t her protector, she can’t risk getting close to him or anyone. And she can’t tell him the truth. 

After a bold attempt on Sonnet’s life, Zack enlists the help of two close friends and someone completely unexpected to protect her. The countdown to an all-out war looms before them. Would they all survive? Time was running out.

Book Series Feature & #Giveaway ~ The Locke Brothers Series by Twi J Bryant ~ Contemporary Fiction Love Story ~ @TwiJBryantBooks


The Locke Brothers Series 
by Twi J Bryant

Genre: Contemporary Fiction Love Story

Obsessed 
The Locke Brothers Book 1 



When Vanessa loses Sebastian to rehab once again, she finds passion in the most unexpected person. 

Vanessa and Sebastian have been best friends forever, but they're not just friends, they're friends with benefits. This arrangement has never been a problem, but Vanessa starts to long for more. How much longer can she stand the empty bed and a note on the bedside table the morning after? 

When Sebastian, a sexy drummer with a bad boy attitude, falls back into his bad habits, Vanessa watches him go to rehab with a broken heart, again. But the lead singer of Sebastian's band, Jessie, is ready to cheer her up. Vanessa needed a shoulder to cry on; instead, she found a dom she can't help but want to please. Jessie ignites her body in ways she's never imagined and slowly inches his way into her heart. 

Vanessa didn't want to fall in love, especially with a man so different from Sebastian, but sometimes the heart wants what it wants. 

The only problem is, Jessie is Sebastian's younger brother. 


Devoted 
The Locke Brothers Book 2 


Jessie and Vanessa are happy and in love. Finally, she's with the brother that is ready to commit, or so she thinks. 

Sebastian is back from rehab and although he wants Vanessa to be happy, it's hard to be just a friend while his brother steals her heart. Regrets follow him daily; but if he reveals his true feelings now, he won't only lose a brother, he might lose Vanessa for good. 

An awkward situation becomes impossible when Jessie asks Vanessa the unthinkable. 

Faced with a life or death decision while Jessie is already running for the hills, she turns to the one friend who has always been there for her, Sebastian. 

The rift between Jessie and Vanessa puts Sebastian in the middle; a hard place to be when you're trying to balance on a thin line between a devastated brother and the girl you've always loved. 

Will Jessie realize what he's giving up? Can Sebastian finally be the man Vanessa needs him to be? How will Vanessa choose and will it be the right choice? 


Beloved 
The Locke Brothers Book 3 


For the Locke brothers loving the same woman has always been a challenge, but nothing compared to the challenge they're yet to face… 

Finally able to pursue her happily ever after with Sebastian, Vanessa is overwhelmed and excited for the future. With Jessie's blessing, they move from dating to being engaged in a matter of weeks. She can't wait to spend the rest of her life with Sebastian and doesn't want to waste another second. 

But something is lurking in the background, something neither the brothers nor Vanessa could see coming. Something more dangerous than love, more threatening than heartache. When the news strikes, the turbulent love triangle is shaken to the core. 

Out of desperation to change her story, Vanessa, who was ready to say I do to one brother, ends up proposing to the other. The Locke brothers are at a crossroads. Faced with impossible decisions, heart-wrenching revelations and a love strong enough to tear them all apart. They both know that in the end, they'll do anything to please the woman they love. 

Love, heartache, regret, and passion all converge in this final novel of the Locke Brothers Series. Twi J. Bryant turns this love triangle on its head but in the end only one thing matters; their memories of her. 




This is actually two authors writing together! 

J. Bryant lives in a zoo. Not really, but come over at dinner time and you'll think you've stepped right into one between the teenagers and twins. She started writing as a creative way of getting her frustrations out and never expected anyone to read the madness that she jotted down. Then she partnered with Twi, who encouraged her to start a tumblr account and post the stories she'd written. HUGE MISTAKE! Now, we're sitting by the phone waiting on Ellen's call to invite us on her show. In the meantime she'll be cheering on her beloved Saints (ehhhm. Ellen, we're practically family) football team from where she resides in Louisiana! 

Twi is a devoted mother and wife who wasn't that good at cooking to begin with so she doesn't feel guilty when she orders dinner in so she has time to write. Her love of sticky notes and all office supplies keeps her organized while her house slowly dissolves into madness during writing jags with her lobster, J. Bryant. (It's a Friends reference. Look it up.) She lives in Phoenix, AZ, where it is too hot to do anything outside, so she spends most of her free time on her computer or playing Destiny 2 with friends. Writing is her favorite creative outlet.

Book Sale Blitz & #Giveaway ~ Let Me Go (Let Go, Book 1) by DC Renee @authordcrenee Contemporary Romance


Let Me Go 
Let Go, Book 1 
by DC Renee 


Genre: Contemporary Romance 


Rape. One word changed his life. Mason Tredwell had it all. He was a good looking, well-respected doctor. He had money, power, and friends. He never worried about finding a woman to warm his bed. But that all changed when he was wrongfully accused of rape. And now, after five years in prison and the loss of everything he cared about, he wanted revenge.

Abandoned as a baby and bounced around different foster homes, Kat Gingham never really had a charmed life. But now, things were really falling apart. She had no money, no job, and even her lying, cheating boyfriend was gone too. She allowed herself one night to cry about her situation before she picked herself back up. But when she woke up, she was no longer at home, and she was no longer alone. She was facing Mason, a guy who claimed she ruined his life. And he’s hell-bent on breaking her down, humiliating her, making her feel like he has all these years.

She claimed she had no clue what he was talking about, but he didn't believe her. The facts don’t lie.

Was Kat lying? Could she convince Mason to let her go? Or was fate playing a role in why they were thrown into this together?
