Release Boost: The Bad Guy by Celia Aaron (Dark Romance)




Title: The Bad Guy
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 21, 2017



Blurb

My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this story.
I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.
Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.
She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he wants. That’s me.
I’m the bad guy.

Book Tour: Set You Free by Elmer Seward



About the Book
Title: Set You Free
Author: Elmer Seward
Genre: Suspense

Love, Lies, and the Secrets That Bind
Deena is running from a dangerous past.  When she finds herself in a small fishing village tucked away on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, she thinks she is finally safe. While there, she discovers a journal that weaves a story of secrets, passion, and unrequited love.  In its pages, she discovers the answers to her struggle with the shadows of her own past.  In the end, those shadows close in on her and threaten all that she holds dear.

Author Bio
Elmer Seward was born and raised along the Chesapeake Bay in southeast Virginia.  Growing up, the cemetery behind his house was his playground.  The metaphorical theme of death and rebirth that figures prominently in his novels is probably influenced in some way by the time that his mother heard, through the screened window, a small voice crying for help.  Rushing from the house and through the yard, she discovered her all-too-curious six-year-old son at the bottom of a freshly dug grave.  In that moment, he discovered that trouble is much easier to get into than it is to get out of.  Sometimes we need help getting out of the hole that we jump into willingly.
He is blessed to have a large blended family.  He is also the reluctant servant of three crazy dogs, a Maltese, a Japanese Chin, and a BruMaltChiYorkie.  All of these strongly influence the characters and events in his novels; however, his beautiful wife, Mitzi, is the true inspiration for the tender hearted but determined women in his stories.
He is the author of two previous novels, Hearts in the Storm and Dreams of the Sleepless.

New Review from Sadie: The Seraphina Series by Sheena Hutchinson


Seraphina's Awakening
(Book One of The Seraphina Series)
by 
Sheena Hutchinson



For as long as she can remember, Seraphina Cross has experienced these visions that made her feel like there was more to life. It wasn’t until one moment, one accident that her life changed forever.

She awakens the next day a new person in more ways than one. With no recollection of past night’s events, she’s forced to adapt to certain sensations she is experiencing all while trying to piece together what exactly happened to her that fateful night. Her strange, hectic life doesn’t seem to make sense until she meets a handsome stranger. Only then does the puzzle finally piece itself together.

What she doesn’t expect is the new powers she has developed attracting all kinds of unwanted attention. Thrown into a world she never truly believed existed she is forced to come to grips with who she is becoming while staying out of trouble long enough to figure out what needs to be done to fulfill her destiny.


When a book opens up talking about Angels and Heaven, I tend to get skeptical. As a woman of faith I sometimes worry about what direction the author will go, but no worries here. Seraphina’s Awakening by Sheena Hutchinson is a fun third person story following a young woman who is about to come face to face with good and evil.

Her guardian Angel, Nate, is strong, protective, and at times, funny. Not only is Sera learning about spirits and other natural forces, but Nate is learning about the one thing that angels don’t get to experience: emotions. All kinds of emotions. This story is a fun thrill ride as Sera’s dreams start coming to life.

I liked how the author was nice enough to share the dreams and would switch the POV so we can see how others saw what was happening. My one pet peeve with the book was that in the story Sera is constantly telling people they are getting her name wrong.”Sera with an E” the last chapter of the book her name is spelled Sarah. For a minute I thought maybe there was a new character. Other than that it is an exciting adventure.






Seraphina's Initiation
(Book Two of The Seraphina Series)
by 
Sheena Hutchinson


Seraphina Cross is unexpectedly thrown into this crazy, spiritual world of Angels versus Demons.Never did she expect to meet Nate who was just a figment of her imagination. Now she finds herself moving in with him because of her innate responsibility to protect her loved ones from harm. 

Finally beginning to feel at home in her new house and with her new relationship. Nate begins training Sera in all that she can do, surprising even himself at times.Just when she is starting to feel safe and powerful, Lucifer finds a new way to attack her at her most vulnerable. 

When her dreams are no longer a gift, can Sera control the powers needed to defeat what's coming before Lucifer fulfills his promise to her?


Book two of Sheena Hutchinson’s Series about Seraphina picks up right where book one left off. Our Fallen Angel, Nate, and Sera are still trying to figure out why the evil wants her. This leads her to a face-to-face with Lucifer. Sera has been “disappearing” during her dreams and she and Nate need to figure out what she is doing and why. We also learn that Jack is not who he seems. The evil is coming out in full force but Sera’s is excelling rapidly in her training. A few new clues do pop up when she gets a visit from her grandfather. 

I like the romantic moments between Sera and Nate stay PG, with him being a fallen angel, I am glad he is sticking with good morales. What does make me sad is that we have lost info about her best friend Amanda. She was prevalent in book one and now we only get a small moment, as if her best friend is no longer important. It was like she was forgotten and then given an “oh yeah, here ya go” scene.

All in all, the storyline continues with the rollercoaster of emotions and actions. Looking forward to see how it all ends.




Sheena is a born and raised New Yorker, even her writing can’t seem to hide her hard sarcasm. She claims destiny has lead her back to her true passion for writing.

She constantly strives to be a positive role model and writes stories that empower and inspire. Sheena always roots for the underdog, believes in love at first sight, and that everyone should have their happily ever after.

While God is currently still writing her love story, she continues to put all her effort into her writing as she is constantly getting new inspiration.

About the Book

Title: Ernie and the Evils of Insurance
Author: Brent Ayscough
Genre: Mystery Thriller

Ernie, an experienced logger from rural Washington State, loses his job when the logging operation he works for is shut down due to the spotted owl. When he goes in to apply for unemployment, Ernie is persuaded to take a job out of state as a temporary insurance adjuster in Los Angeles. While he knows that Los Angeles will be a lot different than Sedro Woolley, Washington, and insurance adjusting a lot different than logging, really, how hard can it be? And there are lots of downed trees in Southern California after the recent earthquake and storms they had there. 

So packing up his trusty chainsaw in his saddlebags, Ernie hops on his motorcycle and heads south. But to his dismay, Ernie discovers that LA is a lot farther from Washington in more than just miles. Unprepared for the corruption and callousness rampant in the insurance industry, Ernie soon finds himself not only in trouble with his job, but on the top of an assassin’s hit list. Still, although Ernie might be a hick from the sticks, he’s far from stupid. Blessed with an innate intelligence, an abundance of common sense, and a redneck sense of humor, Ernie will give his enemies a hilarious run for their money…if he can just survive long enough.

Krysten Lindsay Hager 
Publication date: March 21st 2017
Genres: ContemporaryRomanceYoung Adult



Emme is a sophomore in high school who starts dating, Brendon Agretti, the popular senior who happens to be a senator's son and well-known for his good looks. Emme feels out of her comfort zone in Brendon's world and it doesn't help that his picture perfect ex, Lauren, seems determined to get back into his life, along with every other girl who wants to be the future Mrs. Agretti.

Can Emme get over her insecurities and make her relationship work? Life sure is complicated when you're dating the it guy.


Dating the IT guy, is written by Krysten Lindsay Hager in first person POV following the main character, Emme. The story is about the challenges of dating the most popular guy in a small town. It's hard enough without the history of a cheating boyfriend and major self-esteem issues. Combine them all, and you get an amazing story. I loved how no matter how many times they got in a fight, or how many times they tried to make one another jealous, they still kept on coming back to each other. I also liked how the characters helped each other through a lot of family issues. And even when you, as a reader, begin doubt their (Emme and Brandon) relationship, they pulled through.




Krysten Lindsay Hager writes about friendship, self-esteem, fitting in, frenemies, crushes, fame, first loves, and values. She is the author of True Colors, Best Friends...Forever?, Next Door to a Star, Landry in Like, and Competing with the Star (The Star Series: Book 2).
