It's not often I write a rambling post on here, I usually just post releases and reviews. But I feel something as important as our first anniversary needs to be documented in a blog post.
Exactly one year ago I clicked post on the first ever post on here.
Since then we have now got over 2200 likes on our Facebook page and have Twitter and Google plus too.
Sure we aren't as massive as some other blogs that I know of, and I'm okay with that. This was never about how many likes or followers we could get.
It was about being able to read and rave about the books that I love.
It was about being able to support Indie authors.
And that is what it should be about.
The amount of friends I have made in this year is incredible. I have been to two signings and had amazing times at both of them.
I have blogger friends, author friends, reader friends and swag making friends. People I can talk book stuff with and who seem to understand me more than anyone else I know. People I feel like I have known for years!
I suddenly realise my place in life. This is my place. These are my people. Book world is my life.
A year or so ago I would never have even thought of writing a book or making swag and now I do both alongside this blog too!!
And when I'm not doing any of that I'm reading, and I wouldn't have my life any other way.
I love my life now, I never realised anything was missing. Now I know it's complete.
I am a Blogger, author, swag maker for life...

GRIT by: J.C. Valentine Spartan Riders #1 Publication Date: April 19, 2016 Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance, MC RomanceSynopsis: Gabby Morgan isn’t looking for love. Not even a little romance. Following a rocky past that she’d just as soon forget, she’s determined to focus on the future. One that most certainly doesn’t involve the tough-as-nails, short-on-words, hot-as-hell biker…or his kid. Blake Mahone may not be done with women, but he’s finished with relationships. Then Gabby Morgan enters the picture. She’s flawless, refined, and as his kid’s teacher, way out of his league. She acts like she hates him, but her eyes tell a different story. Before he knows it, Blake finds himself hot for teacher, and he’s more than ready to learn all her secrets. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a shot…without getting them both killed in the process.
GRIT - EXCERPTSensing movement, Gabby opened her eyes and found herself staring at a wall of male chest. Leather creaked as Blake drew even closer, closing out what little space was left between them. Body heat licked her breasts sending goosebumps scattering down her arms and across her chest that teased her nipples into stiff, sensitive points. When he leaned down, placing his face so close to hers she could practically taste the beer on his breath, Gabby shivered. It became painfully clear that the time for fighting this attraction had come to an end. The sheer torture of trying to resist was something she could no longer abide, and so Gabby gave in. “You want something, teach?” The low rumble of his voice reached down deep, sending a flood of heat rushing between her thighs. “I—” “Because the way you’ve been watching me all night tells me you see something you like. Or maybe it’s not so much a like as it is a need,” he growled, one hand reaching up to curl a lock of her hair around his finger. The way she bloomed for him told her that he was right. He was beautiful, he was edgy, and in the rare moments that he opened his mouth to speak, he was devastating. She needed him in the worst way. To ease the growing ache inside of her. To temper the need she’d felt from the moment she laid eyes on him. But she didn’t know him. And what she knew of him, she didn’t necessarily like. “I don’t know if I…like you,” she whispered into the narrow space dividing them. Bending farther down, the rough hairs dusting Blake’s jaw scratched deliciously against her cheek as he placed his lips beside her ear and whispered back, “I don’t know if I like you either, teach.” She felt the heavy weight of his hand curl around her hip and give her a possessive tug, pressing them together, chest to chest. “Is that a problem for you?”

Release date: 18th April 2016
There is nothing I can do.
The world keeps turning, the engines keep running, but I am stuck in a downward spiral with no one left to pull me out.
I’m an idiot, a liar, a disgrace and whatever else you want to call me. Go ahead. It’s nothing I haven’t told myself a thousand times over. You’re completely right.
It doesn’t change the outcome though and I have to live with that for the rest of my life. There is no light at the end of the tunnel for me, no chance at redemption. I don’t deserve it, but I still want to carve my little slice of happiness out from the mess I created.
I’m asking you to believe me.
I’m asking them to forgive me.
I’m asking him to save me.
But maybe I’m asking just a little too much.

OMFG!! I Love This Book, Couldn't Get Into It In The Beginning But When I Did BOOM!!!! I Was Hooked. ~ She’s A Lip Biter
Skye glides down the hall and spots me.
“Hey handsome, you okay?”
Sighing, I shake my head. “Nope.”
She frowns and grabs my hands facing me. “What’s wrong?”
I don’t even know where to start. How about—I’m infiltrating your clubhouse, and I have to take down the brother’s I’ve grown to love. I miss my kids and wife, and yet somehow I feel like I’m falling for you too, which is only making things harder. I don’t want to betray anyone and yet I feel like, in the end, I’m going to betray everyone. Yeah, how do I explain that?
“I miss my kids,” I choose to tell her instead.
She nods and presses her forehead against mine. “I’m sorry. Is there anything I can do?”
I shrug. “Make my kids appear out of thin air?”
She giggles and nods. “Your wish is my command.”
The bathroom door opens and Jackson walks out. “I’m here.”
Skye backs up and her mouth drops open. “Please tell me that’s not one of yours? ‘Cause if it is, I swear to God I didn’t conjure him up.”
Throwing my head back laughing at the sheer awesome timing of that, I shake my head. “No gorgeous, this is Jackson. He’s Nikita’s kid. I’m watching him for her while she talks to Lookout.”
She slumps her body and nods taking a deep breath. “Oh thank God, ‘cause I thought for a second there that I was doing something I didn’t know I could. You know, super-powers and all that.”
Smiling, I pull her to me and kiss her forehead. “God you’re cute. No, that was just impeccable timing.”
“So I get the whole missing your kids thing now. When you’re finished babysitting, if you want to talk I’m here. I’m always here.”
Smiling at her, I nod. “Thank you, that means a lot.”
