BLOG TOUR WITH REVIEW – Wheeler by Sara Butler Zalesky 

Sara Butler Zalesky
Publication date: July 4th 2016
Genres: Adult, Romance, Sports, Suspense

Known as the Ice Queen of the peloton, pro cyclist Loren Mackenzie rarely shows emotion in the heat of competition; she leads her team with quiet strength and determination. But her successes have not come without suffering, and her tragic past is hidden inside tarnished armor.

While out on a training ride with her cycling team near Enfield, England, a chance meeting quickly develops into an unexpected whirlwind romance. But a relationship with an A-list celebrity brings with it the microscope of tabloid-media attention, which expose jealousy and rivalry that threaten to undermine Loren’s leadership of her team.

The new romance also reveals a dangerous obsession, culminating in a terrifying confrontation with someone from Loren’s past. Her injuries not only put her chances at the World Championship in jeopardy but also bring forth memories of a life she had long buried – for good reason.

Can Loren open her heart to the love she has held at a distance, or will her fear ultimately defeat her?

The follow up novel in the Wheeler series is coming soon.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 review by Sam .

 I decided to read this book as a change from my usual genre choices, while still having a romantic angle. Zaleskys writing style is immersive and the structure of the novel is well thought out and beneficial to the story. As someone who has never been a fan of watching events such as the Tour de France I was a little concerned as to whether it would interest me, however I found myself unable to put the book down. The explanations and descriptions of the cycling, training and strategy used were easy to follow and Zalesky portrays the cyclists in a way which makes you appreciate the hard work they put into their profession. 

The characters in the novel, especially the main character Loren Mackenzie, are well developed and the evolution of the secondary characters combined with Lorens flourishing relationship with actor Graham Atherton make for a compelling read. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and would read future books by this author.

Author Bio:

Sara was born in the wee hours of a November night in New York City. When her family moved to a small borough in northwestern New Jersey, she had little choice but to move as well. Self-sufficiency is a tough thing for a toddler.

The dichotomy of being the middle child of three, but the only girl, was difficult, as typically no one really pays attention to a middle child. Mostly, Sara spent her time creating fanciful stories in her head when she should have been focused on other things, an issue that continues to this day.

Most of these stories have never been shared, let alone completed. This all changed in the spring of 2015, when Sara was encouraged by a friend to expand upon a short story she had accidentally emailed to him. The result is ‘Wheeler’, a romantic, women’s fiction/sport novel, which combines the author’s romantic inclinations and her passion for cycling.

Sara currently resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA, with her loving husband and their son. She is a paralegal for a boutique law firm in Chester County, Pa, an avid road cyclist and indoor cycling instructor at a national chain.

BLOG TOUR – Spell BOOK & Scandal by Jen McConnel

Spell Book & Scandal
Jen McConnel
Publication date: October 31st 2017
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Shelby King is tired of living in her sister’s shadow. Just because Christina is the most powerful caster in school doesn’t mean Shelby’s any good at magic; she’s a scribe, like her mom, and everyone expects her to write spells for her sister, the way her mom always has for her dad. But Shelby’s spells fail spectacularly, and by the time she’s a sophomore, Christina won’t touch them with a ten-foot-pole; their parents aren’t much better. Shelby is fed up, and she decides to show the world she doesn’t care if she isn’t as good as her stuck-up sister, or as talented as their powerful parents. In fact, she decides it’s time to break all the rules, magical and otherwise, and she starts sneaking out to meet Jeremiah Smallwood, the second-best caster in school at illegal pop-up spell battles around town. She may not be able to scribe for him, but she doesn’t mind letting him think that she could; Shelby’s been half in love with Miah as long as she can remember, but he’s never paid attention to her until now, and she’s not going to risk her chances worrying about a pesky thing like the truth. But when Christina rats her out to their parents, Shelby can’t control her anger, and words come pouring out of her that she can’t take back even if she wanted to, threatening Christina’s future…and Shelby’s own chances with Jeremiah. It’ll take more magic than Shelby’s ever dreamed of to set things right, but no scribe has that much magic…right?

BLOG TOUR WITH REVIEWS – Written In Flames by Ashleigh GiGiannoccaro & Eva Logan

WIF BT Banner.png

WRITTEN IN FLAMES, a Romantic Suspense by Eva Logan & Ashleigh Giannoccaro is LIVE!



Now I lay me down to sleep

I dream of flames that are soul deep

But if they should come

Before the night is done

I pray the lord my heart to save

If the fire my flesh should crave.

Nolan Leith: pyromaniac, recluse, and predator perched above the world.

Delilah Carmine: heir to a failing business, ballerina, and obsessive compulsive.

The pull of the fire was never something he could ignore. Even now, he barely controls the need to set the entire world alight. His one lover is a flaming seductress that taunts him with her beauty and danger. He couldn’t resist if he tried. Will they all get burned, or will they rise from their ashes?

Delilah brings with her an intruder to his sacred zone. Curiosity has her trespassing upstairs. Her nocturnal neighbor fascinates her, the brooding tenant above her has her enthralled and captivated. She needs to be the one to extinguish his burning needs, but will he have tolerance for her compulsive habits or will he see Red?

Passion is a wildfire which devours everything in its path.

Broken people shouldn’t play with matches.


 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 REVIEW by Lea

Oh my goodness! This book is just too beautiful. It’s tragic in a wondrous sort of way. I really can’t describe well enough the genius of this book, the way it touched me. 
I’m a big fan of love stories involving broken souls and this is just that, but with so much more.
Ash and Eva have created some wonderfully complex characters that really get under your skin and draw you in to their story. Not only are the hero and heroine a joy to meet but so are the villains of the piece.
I can honestly say I was swept away and my heart was, quite surprisingly, beaming by the time I had finished this book.
I hope there will be many books to come from these two authors.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 REVIEW by Jodie 
What can I say really. This author has always held a special part of my heart and this book is no exception to that. The added bonus being that another author has been thrown into the mix that I will now have to go and stalk (sorry not sorry)

It is beautifully written while being detailed in its content and just has you over a barrel until you have finished the very last word. It’s words are enthralling and just simply won’t let you go until you reach the end but even then you want more and more and more. 

Ashleigh and Eva have a superb talent of being able to make the book come alive.. you see the words jump off the page and swing into action you watch as the story unfolds. I even dreamed about this book! 

This book has all the feels going on and that one things I love about Ashleigh’s writing. She had the ability to make you feel everything that is going on in those pages. It makes reading come alive! Both authors have done an amazing job in this co written book. 

This book flows beautifully from the very first to the very last and I would change a single bit of it. Thanks for yet another amazing journey
