COVER REVEAL: The One by Kimberly Knight




Synopsis 
Avery and Nicole's story.

Avery Scott is a hopeless romantic, the complete opposite of his best friend, Easton. For most of his life, he’s been searching for that someone special to spend the rest of his life with. The problem is, he’s had nothing but bad first dates with crazy women he’s met online or at his bar, Halo. When he hears about a singles cruise, his plan is to meet a lot of single women, to test the waters, but when a blonde consumes his every thought, he throws that plan overboard.

Nicole Chambers has had her fair share of heartbreaks. She’s tired of being single or dating guys with girlfriends. She wants to find The One. So she convinces her best friend, Brooke, to go on a singles cruise with her. What she doesn’t expect is to fall head over heels with the first guy she meets.

But what happens once the cruise ends? 

Life isn’t always fairytales and rainbows…

And meeting The One doesn’t always mean finding your happily ever after. Because life can give you a precious gift and then dangle it in front of your eyes and you’re left questioning where to go with your future—or if you even have one.

Re-Release of Double Blind Study Series Covers

Author: Heidi R Hutchinson
Genre: Contemporary romance

Learn To Fly (Double Blind Study Book 1) is currently FREE on ALL Platforms




WARNING: contains foul-mouthed rock stars, irritating exes, loud music, an overworked tour manager and random shenanigans.

Lenny Evans felt like her life was suffocating her. She would do just about anything to change that, which is how she ended up taking a job that landed her on tour with the biggest rock band in the world. The plan was simple: get a job, get out of town, don't get attached. But Lenny has never met anyone like the members of Double Blind Study and they easily adopt her into their makeshift family. Now, Lenny finds herself caring far too deeply for these tattooed misfits, daily bringing them closer and closer to revealing Lenny's true past and everything she's running from. Sometimes crashing headlong into the unknown isn't the worst thing.







Warning: contains foul-mouthed rock stars, surprise appearances from exes, heart wrenching revelations and of course, fantastically loud music.

BOOK #2 IN THE DOUBLE BLIND STUDY SERIES

He was as wild and unpredictable as a prairie storm. She was trying to pretend like he wasn't everything she ever wanted. How long can a storm be in stasis before lightning strikes?
Double Blind Study is taking charge of their future. Coming off of one of the most successful tours to date, they start their own label and decide to get back to what they love the most: the music. But relearning how to be responsible adults can be a long road. Blake Diedrich has been running from himself his whole life. Being in a band with his very best friends has helped to keep him on the move during that time. But then Blake's past joins the tour and he's forced to think about all the choices he's made to get him where his is today.

Lucy Newton, raised by her widowed rock star father, has a talent beyond measure. But she's placed her hopes on the back burner, putting family first. An opportunity arises that allows her to chase her dream but there's a catch: Blake Diedrich, the man who broke her heart too many times to count is part of the package.

Pride is a destructive foe and Forgiveness is hard to accomplish. Friendship is powerful and Love is unpredictable. Every journey has a purpose, will Blake and Lucy come out stronger for it on the other side? Or will it destroy what's left of their shattered hearts?






No matter how solid something seems, if enough pressure is applied, hearts and lives will shift. Shane Brookings, passionate surfer and accomplished athlete, was not a rock star, as much as he tried to represent himself as one throughout most of his adulthood.  Mostly, Shane had always been kind of a jackass.  A talented jackass, but still.  So it really came as no surprise to him that the only two women he had seen a future with, chose actual rock stars to hitch themselves to. Feeling cold and hollow, he returned to California to focus on growing his brand.  Determined to now stay serious about his life choices, he never anticipated Greta O'Neil's blatant shove into his life. Greta O'Neil, avid artist, surfer chick, and baby sister to a rock star, had a life that was anything but boring.  Having a knack for pulling sad men out of their funk, she sets her talents on Shane Brookings.  She has no intention of breaking her rules, which include getting too close, letting him in, and accidentally falling for the guy. But Shane is not like her other projects.  Not only is he built like a Greek god, he's hardworking, passionate, clever and heroic.  (Not that he believes any of those things about himself.)  The rules she has so firmly set down to protect herself, are more than shaken up with Shane's every push into her life. Even as they both compromise to make room in their hearts for the other, outside forces put pressure on their burgeoning relationship.  Shane's dream is put into jeopardy, ex-lovers surface at the worst moments, and their own faults threaten to violently tear them apart.






Release Date: October 28th, 2014 Available for Pre-Order on ALL Platforms Listed




Mike Osborn woke up in a hospital in Germany three years ago.  He was still breathing.  They had saved him. 

Double Blind Study has been through every rock and roll cliché ever contrived.  When their drummer nearly dies from a drug overdose, everything changes.  Life becomes important again.  Living becomes important again.

No one knows that better than Mike.  So why does he feel like even though he's breathing and he's happy, his heart isn't beating the way it should be?  Maybe it never did.

When Mike meets Clarke Matthews for the first time, he knows he should stay away.  He knows too much about her and what she's been through.  He knows that he's not the one who should still be here.  But for the first time, his heart has found another rhythm that matches its own.  Every beat reveals new colors exploding in his darkness.

Mike's been living life raw, unplugged.  He's close to a reckoning.  When it all comes apart, and he's faced with every mistake he's ever made, will the black win out and wash away the color that he's found?  Or will the steady drum of a healthy pulse finally push the black away for good?










Heidi Hutchinson was born in South Dakota and raised the exact right distance away from the Black Hills. She had an overactive imagination very early on, and wasted no time in getting most of her friends in trouble due to her unrealistic and completely ridiculous ideas. Seeing as she was so lazy and also afraid people would think she was bonkers, she didn't write down any of the story lines that played out in her daydreams. During her high school years, she took pen to paper and filled more notebooks than she is proud of with angsty, depressing, self-depreciating poetry. This led to her writing down more things: notes, ideas, character bios, plot twists that had no plot yet to twist. After years of cleaning up her own scraps of imagination with nothing solid to hold on to, she sat down and wrote the story that had been in her head the longest. Fueled by coffee and her unwavering and perfectly normal devotion to Dave Grohl, she discovered a writer living inside of her. She still lives in the Midwest, though not as close to the Black Hills as she would prefer, with her alarmingly handsome husband and their fearless child.  They eat more pizza than God intended and she listens to her music the same way she lives: loudly.

~Synopsis ~

With intertwining memories and world of deceit and betrayal yet to be exposed, Survival, book #1 in the Twisted series, is an intense, compelling page-turner, seen through the eyes of Skye 'the Skillet' Jones. With no friends, no family and a life of loneliness ahead, Skye was looking for a reason to fight. To live. To survive. A once happy family was torn apart, leaving a hazy cloud of confusion, abandonment and fear in its wake. Her twin brother, Oliver, was all she had. Until the talons of death and the consequences of his dangerous coping mechanism tore his life from him. Skye was left alone, mourning the loss of her brother and the life he would never live, when Cut Throat Curtis swooped in and taught her to fight; to control her emotional anguish with physical strength. But he was dangerous, a force to be reckoned with. A man with turmoil and secrets of his own. He soon left as quickly as he'd appeared, becoming a ghost in the life she no longer knew. She had nothing. She had no one. When all Skye had was her will to survive, fate have her Thomas. He fought for her, he fought with her and he loved her like no other. But fate was waiting, ready to strike with the force of a hurricane when she thought she had everything she'd ever wanted. It was coming, the cruel twist of fate that would bring Skye to her knees and threaten her survival once more...

“That dress makes your tits look incredible.” Thomas curled his arm over my shoulders, taking one of my breasts, sheathed in midnight blue, in his hand. “Yeah, well, those trousers are too tight. I could see your cock twitching for me all night.” “Mmm,” he groaned, moving his arm and slipping both hands into his pockets. “It’s been twitching for you for thirty-six hours.” That was how long it had been. Sometimes we would only last an hour without each other. Sometimes we’d go at it all night, multiples times, until I was so exhausted I only just made it to work the next day. And sometimes we would go for days with nothing but a teasing touch and a goading glare. It was what we enjoyed most. The anticipation. Building the need until it was on such a base level we couldn’t stop for hours. It had been thirty-six since he was last inside me. The only contact we’d had was chaste kissing, an ass grab on his part and a crotch stroke on mine. I ached for him; I would have torn my clothes off and rode him on the back seat if it weren’t for the game. We played it every time we went out.

 4 stars 

I guess I will start with how I loved Skye. She was amazing. She was strong and even though she had ever right to be a whiny character with a "poor me" attitude she fought her way through and came out on top time and time again. But how many times can you keep boucing back before you decide to just give up? I love strong female leads in a story.

So, Skye had it all at one time. A perfect family, friends, and just a good life. Then things change. The one thing I didn't really like in the story was that this once perfect life and then it all changed was brought up a few times. We learn that Skye's dad leaves them when she is a kid but we never really find out why? Just he left. There are some other things but I don't want to give it all away. We know her twin brother Oliver dies and now Skye is all alone. I know that this is the first book in the series and I am hoping that the reason so many questions were left is to pick them up in future books. 

It was a good story and I really enjoyed it. It is very emotional and I must say I was misty eyed in a lot of it but I also had a lot of questions when I finished. I'm looking forward to seeing if Skye will get her HEA or if she is destin for heartbreak forever.

The Scars of Us by Nikki Narvaez



Kaiya Marlow has always been cautious, precise in every decision she makes. When her dark past threatens to resurface, she decides to take precautions to protect herself by enrolling in self-defense classes at her gym.

Her instructor, Ryker Campbell, is the tattooed womanizer everyone warns about. Kaiya attempts to resist Ryker's advances, but the more time they spend training together, the harder it is for Kaiya to resist him.

Ryker's view on relationships is simple: strictly sex, nothing more. Haunted by demons from his past, he never allows himself to become attached to any woman. No attachment means no weakness, no vulnerability, no pain. He doesn't realize that his whole world is about to be turned upside down when Kaiya enters his self-defense class. Determined to have her, at least for one night, Ryker sets a plan into motion that will change both of their lives forever.

Will love be able to heal their scars, or are they too deep to overcome?




  5 stars 
Let me start with a brief run down of the characters. First there is Kaiya Marlow. She is a strong young lady who fights everyday to over come her tragic past but like everyone she has good days and bad days. Then there is Ryker Campbell, the sexy womanizing personal trainer, who just so happens to be the self defense teacher at the gym where Ky starts going and taking classes. Ryker also has his own issues with his past.

Now, this story was sad, funny, sexy, and actually filled with some great info. The story was great and after the first 3 or 4% I was hooked and had to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. There were parts that felt like my heart was being ripped out and then others that it was swelling and filling with love because the way Ky's brother and Ryker were treating her. Yes there were a few mistakes here and there and at times it did bug me. There were also times when they way Kaiya was acting that also annoyed me but I think the way the character was written was very real. I thought for a minute I was going to have to go hunt down Ms. Nikki Narvaez and make her write the second book faster because I was worried about a cliffhanger but there was not one. I still want that second book NOW but I will try to be patient and wait

I'm going to stop with that before I toss in a spoiler that I don't want to. Just now that it is a great book and I am looking forward to the second book to come out and will patiently stalk (in the total friendly way not the creepy way) Nikki's social media to make sure I don't miss that book.




               



So you can stalk Nikki Narvaez in the friendly way too.
