Kenzie Michaels resides in the Midwest with her husband, three children, and various household pets. She is the 'wild child' of author Molly Daniels. They cohabitate nicely
inside the brain of a woman in Indiana who's the mother of three and 'Aunt
Molly' to the entire neighborhood. A devout chocoholic, her hubby has learned
to watch out when the characters in her head take over and not get too upset
when the words are flowing and all concept of time is lost. (LOL)



EXCERPT
Austin captured her once inside the darkened office and swung her into his arms for another kiss.  Her shoes hit the floor as she moaned, and felt his tongue slip past her teeth.
Cara struggled and tore her mouth from his.  “Wait. This can’t be happening.”
“Why not?  I’ve enjoyed the past two weeks of getting to know you.  I’d like to get to know you a little better, that’s all.”  Austin pulled her back and covered her mouth with his.
She hesitated a moment.  How long had it been since her last kiss?  It’d been two years since David had broken up with her, not understanding her responsibilities to her mother.  With a muffled groan, Cara tossed her purse to the floor and twined her arms around his neck.  Moisture pooled between her thighs as his tongue explored the corners of her mouth.  She eagerly returned the kiss, and was rewarded when one of Austin’s hands slid upwards to palm her breast.  Cara didn’t pull away; soon his cool fingers slid inside her bodice and nudged the lace of her bra aside.  She moaned when he rolled the nipple between two fingers and pressed herself closer to him.  Dimly in the background, she heard the vague tones of Bette Midler singing “Wind Beneath My Wings.”
“Wait. My phone’s ringing.  Austin,” she pleaded and forced herself to pull away.
“Can’t you ignore it?” He panted, reaching for her waist.
“I can’t.  This one is important.”



Kenzie will be awarding an eCopy of one of her back list to a randomly drawn commenter at each stop during the tour. An eCopy of Class Reunion and a $10 Amazon GC will be awarded to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour plus another randomly chosen commenter will win a $10 Freya's Bower GC. 


Review:
A perfect touch of romance, lust and love. The sex scenes were pretty intense, the romance had great build-up and the ending was pure bliss. Honestly, I'm surprised it was as good as it was with it being so short. I'd love to read on about these characters though. See where things end up say five or ten years own the road. 
Here is to hoping for more!


4/5

  6. Good, concise review. And that's such an intriguing question...Can Alzheimer's and romance mix? Interesting.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.
