Meeting him was a fluke. Dating him was a mistake. Watching him become a drug addict put me through hell. Running was my only option.


I'm running from my demons and when I find out she's trying to escape her past, I know what I have to do. 

One broken cop. One woman fighting for her life. A fragile love. 

Sinister secrets that threaten to tear them apart. 

They've been to hell. The hard part will be finding their way back together.

Natasha Madison completely stole my heart when she released her first novel, Something So Right. I was excited to learn that a new book was coming our way. From the moment I read the blurb, I knew that it was going to be a story that would make me feel many emotions. 

Bella and Lilah are looking for a new beginning. One where they can heal and be happy. When they leave the hell where they have been living, Bella is determined to keep Lilah safe and give her the life that she deserves. What she never expected was to have a sexy detective as a neighbour. Jackson makes her feel alive and makes her want more. As days goes by, Bella and Jackson create a strong bond. Jackson would do anything to protect Bella and Lilah. Will Bella be able to let go from her demons and trust Jackson with her heart? 

Bella and Jackson are a couple that will completely melt your hearts! Their chemistry is strong and their relationship has many stages in this book. Their friendship blooms into a beautiful story that will leave your heart bursting with love. Bella’s story is not an easy one to read. Many times, I wanted to jump inside the book and give her a massive hug. My heart broke for her and Lilah. These two girls have gone through so much! They needed to find an HEA that would make them feel safe and that would heal their emotional scars. Jackson was protective, kind, loyal, and a passionate hero. He made me swoon so many times and I loved how strongly he loved Bella and Lilah. It took no time for him to fall under their charm. 

I loved my reading escape! The main characters were amazing, the supporting cast fantastic and the story was a page-turning journey. I love following debut authors. It gives me a chance to see them grow as a writer and see the changes that they have made from one book to another. Natasha Madison’s writing style is captivating and will keep you turning the pages until the very end! I highly recommend this emotional book that will deliver all the feels. 


I give, Hell and Back, by Natasha Madison, 5 poignant, sensational, healing stars!

You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...

I want them all to read my words. And they do. Every last blood-stained sentence, they've read and praised me for. They love the gore and violence, the realness. And I get a sense of power with it all because I know a secret: the victims in my books—they’re real and have all died on my table. And maybe that’s why the last book had such awful reviews. Murder is, after all, a dirty little thing. Some can stomach it. Others can’t. My answer to those reviews: find a woman to co-author with. To be the next pathetic character in my book. Pity she’s so pretty. 

Miranda Cross 

All I’ve ever wanted was to be successful as a writer so when I was offered the opportunity to co-author a book with my idol, EA Mercer, I jumped at the chance. He’s beautiful and a literary genius, but something about him makes my stomach knot. And maybe it’s my overactive imagination making my hairs stand on end when he walks up behind me. 

After all, these wicked little words we’re typing are only fiction. They’re only fiction…

My marriage seemed perfect from the outside looking in. 

People envied me. They wanted my life, wanted to be me. 

Mrs Alejandra Gambino. 
Wife of Dino Gambino. 
Daughter of Eduardo Castillo. 
Respected. Loved. Mob royalty. 

They had no idea of the horrors that lurked behind closed doors. 
They didn't know I was at the lowest point a person could reach. 

Enter Julius Carter. 
Aloof, handsome, blue-eyed Julius Carter. 

He saved me. 
I screwed him over. 

Now everybody was after me. My life was forfeit. It was only a matter of time. I was a dead woman walking. 

The question was, who would get to me first?

Raw Family Series on Goodreads:


If you ask me exactly what I was doing when I read Raw two years ago, I can answer your question. I was doing my daily run on my treadmill when the last few chapters of Raw almost made me fall and break my face. I am not joking. I had to stop what I was doing because the last few chapters of that book literally destroyed my heart. I had the biggest book hangover and could not wait to find out how this series would continue. I am so happy with how the author wrote Dirty. The multiple POV`s made my bookworm heart happy. Julius and Alejandra`s story was captivating. It took almost two years to reunite with the Raw family, but it was worth the wait! Belle Aurora did a phenomenal job with this story and it left me wanting more! 

Mob Royalty Alejandra Castillo is living in a cruel world. When she married Dino Gambino, she never expected for her husband to turn into such a monster. A monster who makes her life a living hell. Alejandra gets a once in a lifetime opportunity to run away and never look back. The only problem is Julius Carter. His mission is to bring her back into that dark world. What she never expected was to fall for this mysterious and dangerous man. Their passion is all-consuming and forbidden. What will happen when their two worlds collide? 

I was ecstatic when I found out that Dirty was going to be released in 2016. Two years is a long time to wait to reunite with characters that you love. Expectations are set high and the countdown until the release day is brutal!!! What I loved the most about this book is that Alejandra and Julius captivated me from page one. I love Lexi and Twitch with all my heart so I was afraid that I would not connect the same way with Alejandra and Julius. It took me no time at all to fall in love with them and get transported into their world. Alejandra and Julius are two fascinating characters. My heart broke for them many times during this reading journey. I wanted to jump into the book and give them each a comforting hug. That is what I love about Belle Aurora’s writing style. She not only makes you read the story, she makes you feel it. 

This story kept me turning the pages and I was waiting for THE moment that would leave me speechless. What I like to call "The Belle Punch". That one moment when you are left gasping for air because what is happening is not at all what you were expecting. My expectations were high for this book and Belle Aurora did not disappoint! I highly recommend that you read Raw before reading Dirty. 


I give, Dirty, by Belle Aurora, 4.5 intriguing, dark, dangerous, passionate stars!

About the Author:

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under. 

At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown's Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance. 

Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love. 

Humorous romance novels. 

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. 

Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles. 

Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love. 

With words. 
With writing. 
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored. 

Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.

Bowtie...'till I DIE. 

Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck. 

He’s worked his way out from beneath a hellish childhood and is living the life he’s always imagined for himself. When he meets a girl, a junkie on the verge of ending it all, he’s torn between his feelings for her and the crippling fear that she could be the one to end the life he loves. 

Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet is strung out and tired. 

Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the reflection of the person she’s become. Just when she decides to end it all, she meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever. 

And their deaths. 

For most people, death is the end of their story. 

For Preppy and Dre, death was only the beginning. 

Love. Never. Dies

My Review of Lawless HERE
My Review of Soulless HERE


“No! I hate you,” she spat, as I continued to tug her beside me.  

“Good, you can hate me while I fuck you,” I said. “But first things first. My lesson obviously didn’t take in that brain of yours. You want what you want and I can’t stop you,” I said, as we approached the train tracks which were elevated on a mound of gravel several feet off the ground. The warning lights flashed orange, the neon reflective barriers dropped down to cover the service road, while the bells indicating an approaching train clanged away. “And since I can’t stop you, I’m going to help you out. Bullet in the head was so three hours ago. I’ve got something even better in mind now.” 

“Wait. What?” she asked, her teeth chattering. “You…you wouldn’t.” 

“Wouldn’t what?” I said, turning around to face her, almost losing my footing when I noticed the trail of dried tears on her cheeks. I looked away for a fraction of a second to regain my composure. “You think I wouldn’t kill someone?” I cocked an eyebrow. “You already know that I’ve been there, done that, bought the motherfucking t-shirt, doll.” Her eyes went wide and she made a move to step back. “Oh no, Doc, I read your letter and I saw what you wanted. And remember, I’m nothing if not accommodating.” 

When I pulled her to climb the gravel mound her knees locked up so I bent over and picked her up by the waist, tossing her over my shoulder, carrying her onto the tracks while she beat on my back with her closed fists. When I got to the top I set her down roughly and she fell backwards onto her ass, bracing herself with her hands against the large pieces of gravel under the tracks. 

The whistle of the train blew in the distance. It wouldn’t be long now. Dre made a move to stand up, but that wasn’t what I had in mind. I bent down and pushed on her chest, spreading her tiny frame across the tracks. I crawled on top of her, pinning her down with my thighs. I leaned over her, my chest to hers as we both breathed rapidly. She struggled underneath me to get up, pushing at my chest, but I wouldn’t budge. “Why the struggle, Doc? This is what you wanted, isn’t it?” She glanced up at me as the train whistled again. Her gaze flipped to her right, where the single yellow light from the train emerged from around the corner, shining brighter and brighter as it chugged closer and closer. For a moment she stopped struggling, looking back and forth from the train to me. “So what, you’re gonna die too?” she asked, hoping to appeal to my sense of self preservation. 

I shrugged. “I get bored easily, maybe the devil will make me his errand boy or something.” 

“Preppy, this isn’t funny. Get up and get off the fucking tracks,” she said, her concern shifting from herself to me. 

I shook my head and yawned. She wiggled underneath me, and although there was a train barreling toward us my cock once again stirred to life. Maybe I should just rip down her panties and push inside of her. Train or no train, it would be one fuck of a way to go out. 

“You have to choose, Doc,” I said, making my voice as serious as I was capable. “Life?” I asked, screaming over the sound of the train screeching against the track. I pushed my hard cock against her core and she gasped. Her trembling turned into a shiver, her mouth fell open. I glanced to the side at the blinding light of the approaching train as it bathed us both in a tunnel of light. I leaned down, so close that my lips were a whisper above hers, as I shouted, “Life? Or death? What’s it gonna be, Doc?” My hair blew around my face as the light grew brighter and brighter. “Answer the fucking question!” I demanded, my hands squeezing her shoulders, my fingers digging roughly into her skin. “DO YOU WANT TO FUCKING DIE?” 

With only seconds left until we became shredded under the train, Dre closed her eyes and sighed. When she opened them again they were glistening, fresh tears spilling from the edges. 

She started to speak, her lips forming the beginning of the word, but before it could fully leave her lips I stood, pulling her up with me. I lifted Dre into my arms and took a running leap off the tracks, my legs flailing in the air as we fell the seven or so feet. Dre’s decision still on her lips, her scream surrounding the air around us as we crashed down into the field. 

“I wanna liiiiiiiiiiiivvvvvveeeeee.”


Do you know who Samuel Clearwater A.K.A. Preppy is? 

If your answer is yes, you are excited just as much as me to be able to finally read his book. If you answer is no, what in the world are you waiting for to meet him?!?! He’s EVERYTHING!!! He’s a loyal friend, a gentleman with the ladies, a sexy beast in the sheets and a fun guy that totally turns bada** if you decide to backstab him or anyone that he cares about. 

Preppy is my absolute favorite character in Book Town! I wish I could go back in time and meet him for the very first time. Preppy is the kind of character that will make you feel all kinds of different emotions. Trust me when I say that you will not be able to resist him. Readers all over the world have been cheering for #TeamPreppy and we finally get to embark on another unforgettable journey written by the sensational T.M. Frazier. I highly recommend that you read the entire King Series before you start reading Preppy’s story. Things will make more sense and you won’t regret picking up those books. They are absolutely PHENOMENAL!!! 

T.M. Frazier has created a world where I want to live in. A world where fantasy and reality collide because of how much these books will make you feel. I disconnect from reality when I read one of her books. I’m not just a reader reading the story. I am a reader that transforms into a character that is super excited to reunite with an amazing crew and live every moment of their journey by their side. 

Samuel A.K.A. Preppy and Andrea A.K.A. Dre, are two broken characters that will steal your heart. Both of these characters have gone through some pretty bad things. When they meet, there is this irresistible pull that makes them want to learn more about each other. As days go by, Preppy and Dre become close and the passion between them is simply undeniable. Get ready for a roller coaster ride of emotions that you will never forget! Preppy and Dre are insanely hot, addictive and mesmerizing. 

I absolutely loved my reading escape! It was fascinating to see how this story intertwined with the series. T.M. Frazier always delivers a dark romance novel filled with twisted, wickedly hot and intense moments. I got answers to my questions, I reunited with a fabulous cast of characters and I was left speechless at the end of this story. T.M. Frazier always knows how to end a book with a BANG! I knew going into this book that it would end with a cliffhanger. I was ready for the cliffhanger. Until I read those final words. Ba-Bammmmmmmm!!! 


I give, Preppy: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater-Part One, by T.M. Frazier, 5 unforgettable, fantastic, heart-pumping, chill inducing stars! This book exceeded all of my expectations and became my Top Favorite Read of 2016. January can’t come soon enough!!! I need to know what happens next!
