AtoZ Challenge along with Tuesday Jams - A (Amel Larrieux)



So thanks to Anna over at Herding Cats, I decided to join this challenge. You basically have to post everyday for the Month of April and oh...with each day representing a letter in the alphabet. I'm sitting here thinking...it can't be that bad right? well...lols.

Since today is Tuesday Jams as well....

An artist that is not nationally recognized, Amel Larrieux has a beatiful voice and her songs? muah! perfecto. But I guess since she's not running around half ass naked and shaking her tail feather...

Without much further ado, I give Mrs. Larrieux.




Get Up is my absolute favorite track by her.




Did you sign up for this challenge? What's your letter A today. Leave your link so I can stop by (:
And you Jammers, let's get today...eh?

I saw one movie this month and that was Singles Mom's Club by Tyler Perry. If you like the theme of hard working, single woman coming together with the common goal of looking out for each other and their children, then I think you will like this one. It was a good movie and funny too. There's one woman, Nia Long's character who is an aspiring author :D


And besides my usual regular occasional promo posts, its been a pretty busy month here at SR, I like that. Also, if you noticed that my review request page is down, it is.

Have a great April fellow readers!

M/M Book Spotlight - The My Brother's Keeper Trilogy




All three books are full-length novels and must be read in order. All books are available on March 30.

The My Brother's Keeper Trilogy
The town of Gilford has a Big and Terrible secret hidden in the ground.
Infecting those it touches.
Exploiting their darkness.
Consuming their souls.
It’s hungry. It’s vile. It’s evil.
And it wants out.


Book One: The First Three Rules
Marshal Jon Foster lost his purpose and his sanity the day he saw the image of his dead brother. The distraction saved Jon’s life but cost the lives of innocent people including his best friend and partner. It was a price for survival Jon couldn’t live with and was sure he’d never understand.
Driven by grief and guilt he tried to escape his past by fleeing to a small town in the middle of nowhere. Only instead of peace, the memories festered.
Then the offer of a stick of gum from a stranger changes Jon’s life and puts him on a road out of the nightmare he’s trapped in.

Ellis Harper has lived the past twenty years isolated from the outside world and sole caretaker for his mentally disabled brother, Rudy. While Ellis loves his brother, he longs for a life he’ll never be able to have. 




Shut away, his days consist of chores, endless cartoons, and games of Go Fish.  A world that seemed to have no end until an innocent misunderstanding turns Ellis and his brother into a target for a town bully.
It’s a fight Ellis can never win on his own but thanks to a chance meeting with a stranger, he doesn’t have to.

What begins as a new journey in love for both men quickly unfolds into something neither of them could have ever imagined.



Book Two: Rule Four and Five
A new chance at life comes in many forms: For Jon it’s a family made with Ellis and his brother Rudy. For Ellis, it’s Jon, who has brought the outside world into the protective life he’s built for his mentally disabled brother.

Together they have discovered true happiness and what it means to be loved.

Then one perfect disaster after the other pushes Jon’s resolve to its limit and Ellis over the edge. If they have any chance of saving what they’ve built both men must face their deepest fears.

It’s a test Jon thought he’d already passed and one Ellis never imagined he’d have to face. The journey will forever change who they are and redefine who they were meant to be.

It has to happen.
And all things happen for a reason.

Book Three: The Final Rule
Ellis and Jon need answers.
What is there to understand?
Why does it have to happen?
And what reason could ever justify losing those you love?

If only there was a simple answer. But the more questions they ask, the farther they must travel into the darkness and the things they see are not human, or even possible.
They are, in fact, Big and Terrible.

The plague is rising in Gilford. To stop it from spreading Ellis will have to embrace his destiny and Jon will have to let him go. Both men must be willing to lose everything in order to save the innocent.

It is, after all, rule number six.

Although now she calls the reading "research," the drawing "artwork", the writing "books," and the holes "ponds" and "gardens".

Cutting The Budget - March 2014



Hosted by Shari over at Delighted Reader. It's a great way to keep track on that book spending limit we seem to set ourselves up on, but never seem to follow.
(*taxes are included all book prices)

Todays budget will feature the remaining weeks of March. I simply forgot week's 2, 3...and week 4 is well being added now, lols. I didn't do much buying these last couple of weeks, I caught a couple of freebies &



.99 cent deals.  But then I received a credit from BN for $44.85 and I gladly spent it. I think that takes me over my budget for March...idk. Because technically its free money, I didn't spend any of my own? In any event, I separated the two.

Darby O’Rielly may look like a shy, quiet bookstore owner who waits up at night to make sure her fun loving little sister Rowan makes it home. But that would be a bad assumption if you intend to threaten her family and loved ones. If the deadly magic this witch possesses is unleashed, the whole neighborhood better watch out.
When two handsome brothers move next door, love blooms. Devon and Blake aren’t just hot, they’re vampires hunted by a man with unlimited wealth and vengeance.


With these two atypical couples together, mayhem ensues. Darby is forced to use her new-found magic when hunters snatch Rowan to lure the brothers to their demise. A wreckless decision by the enemy transforms Rowan into a werewolf, throwing her new love Blake into a downward spiral. Werewolf terrors from childhood paralyze his judgment and send him packing, leading Rowan into the arms of a wolf named Dean who helps ease her into the new life she’s forced to embrace.

New Release Spotlight: Seduced ~ Den of Sin Boxed Set 1



Hey Beautifuls! It's time to get seduced because the ladies of the Den of Sin series are celebrating the new release, all of the books are now in one box set! I read all the books that are in this one and lawd...hot! hot! hot! So go on and get it..you know you what to :D

FINAL_DOS_Boxedset_2500SEDUCED: DEN OF SIN Boxed Set 1

New Orleans’s elegant Beaudelaire Hotel isn’t just an acclaimed five-star hotel. Several times per year, the Beaudelaire transforms into a discreet den of sin, and its most important rule is guests must leave their inhibitions at the door. At the Den, lonely hearts connect and secrets are kept. Some guests go home alone wearing smiles, but others find the start of their happily-ever-afters.

Forbidden Rendezvous by Mel Blue

Seraphina orchestrates fantasies, but this year she’ll create one of her own. It’s against the rules for an employee to participate in the weekend-long sex-capades but she’s willing to risk it for Luke. His past and connection to her boss is clouded in intrigue, but she knows what he wants, and she plans to star in one of his voyeuristic fantasies.



Ménage a Troys by Holley Trent

At the Den of Sin anything goes, so instead of two newlyweds letting down their guards to finally consummate their marriage of convenience, three people desperate to be touched forge bonds. That’s all well and good for the weekend, but what will shake out of their tentative ménage a trois when it’s time to go home?

Wicked Surrender by Ambrielle Kirk

Kris is tired of spending her nights playing with hard plastic and silicone. She enters the den in search of a man who will indulge her intimate desires only for one night. When she spots Travis Brenden, a bachelor known for both his lucrative business deals and womanizing ways, she used his lack of memory of her as an advantage.

Redeeming The Amazon by L.V. Lewis

Karen hasn’t made love fully unclothed since her double mastectomy and demise of her marriage. Paul once left his heart in Baltimore with a former model, whose crumbling marriage was the only deterrent to his waning honor. A fantast weekend at his uncle’s hotel may give him a second chance with a contemporary Amazon…if her fear of rejection doesn’t become a barrier to their reconnection.

Leave your inhibitions at the door…and turn the page.
