Blog Tour | The Demon Hunter Series by D. A. Roach

by D.A. Roach
The Demon Hunter Series Book 1
YA Paranormal Romance

At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most…

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.

Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

The Demon Hunter Series Book 2
YA Paranormal Romance


Cassidy and her mystical ring are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Demon World and the Mortal Realm…

A conflict with the demons has left Killian, head of the Demon Hunters, injured and stripped of his powerful Demon Hunter tattoo. Cassidy is tasked with caring for him in the Human Realm until he is well enough to cross back into the Demon Realm. But soon she notices he is acting strangely and begins to suspect something is wrong.

She seeks help from Serena, a retired Demon Hunter, but it’s too late…

Cassidy returns home to find Killian has gone missing. Tyler, a friend with his own set of mystical powers, shows up to tell her that Killian is at his house demanding a meeting with the Demon Queen Rya. She and Serena have to work fast to find a way to heal Killian and get Cassidy’s ring away from him before Rya is involved. Meanwhile, Tyler and his dad have their own plan to make a deal with the Queen.

The Queen has a decision to make, but not before securing her leverage…

Rya wants time to consider the offer presented by Tyler’s dad, and takes Cassidy to the Demon Realm as collateral. The Demon Queen must choose between Tyler, the mate she was promised, and the mystical ring that was forged for her years ago.

Tyler is forced to face the inner demon he has worked so hard to restrain. Will he succeed, or will he be lost to the darkness, leaving Cassidy to be sacrificed by the demons?

As both sides gain alliances, the tension between the realms grows and the time for action draws near…


D.A. Roach has been telling stories since she was a young girl in the suburbs of Chicago. In college she met the man of her dreams, her happily ever after, and married him 2 weeks after graduating. They have 3 kids together and a pet cockatiel named Gimli. D.A. did not find a love for books until after college. Her parents were immigrants from Lithuania and found tv and radio easier ways to hear stories so they did not do much reading or encourage it. But once she finished college and D.A. had free time, she discovered how amazing it was to get lost in a story.

D.A. is a full time mom and wife. When she is not doing domestic things (laundry, bills, etc) she is writing, reading, creating mixed media art, and helping beautify her kids’ school landscape. Oh, and she is ALWAYS listening to music. Her favorite authors include Rebecca Donovan, Richelle Mead, Larissa Ione, Stephanie Meyer, E.L. James, and Sylvia Day. Reading great works from authors like these has motivated D.A. to write her own stories. She hopes to make positive changes in the world with her art and writing.

Book Review | With Ties That Bind (Broken Bonds #3) by Trisha Wolfe!!


Title: With Ties That Bind (Broken Bonds #3)
Author: Trisha Wolfe
Release Date: February 7th 2017

GoodReads Blurb:

Third novel in the With Ties that Bind trilogy. Final novel in the Broken Bonds series.

To protect the woman he loves, Detective Ethan Quinn defied the law he’s defended and upheld his entire career. He turned his back on his honor and ethics with only one objective in mind: protect Avery at all cost. Now he’s tangled in a web of deceit and corruption, no better than the killer he’s hunting.

As Quinn navigates a treacherous maze, he senses a rat amid his department. He suspects the perpetrator is hiding in plain sight, using their shield within the law to disguise them.

Who is the real Alpha?

Having been framed for murders and crimes they didn’t commit, a suspect is under investigation by not only the ACPD, but the FBI, and lead medical examiner Avery Johnson feels the pressure from all sides as she guards the secrets within her lab. Quinn went to great lengths to save her, to protect her…and now it’s her turn to be the hero for the man she loves.

A showdown is looming, the Alpha is ready to strike. No one is safe as the clock ticks down to the final moments that will test every member of the task force, leaving only one side left standing.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I can not believe this series is over. A grand total of seven books over the last two years. I discovered Trisha maybe five years ago through a short story she published. That short story made my top 10 reads that year. Then a couple years later her With Visions of Red series began. I was ecstatic when I was personally invited to her review team. I didn't even think twice about signing up and I am over the moon that I did.

Fast forward to now: the last book in this series is out and I've finished it. I've loved every beautiful, touching, haunting, loving, twisted word. (The twisted parts may have been some of my favorites.) This last books shows how much thought Trisha put into the books and how they tied together. (No pun intended...I think.)

I found myself really liking Quinn even before he and Avery got their own books. The way Trisha described him had me intrigued right away. I have always liked older men. He and Avery had a great relationship that I loved reading about. His determination to protect her and hers to not to be a victim led to some head butting moments between the two. There was also some breaking loose on Quinn's part. Which, I'll admit, was super hot and super enjoyable to read.

The Alpha's POV...I have to admit I loved reading it. Something about getting inside the Alpha's mind...I got excited every time I got to a chapter in the Alpha's POV. I definitely think the identity of the Alpha was a surprise. Here's the bigger surprise. I figured out who the Alpha was. I was proud but also felt like I got a little jipped. Nevertheless, the identity was an awesome reveal. Everything was awesome. I read 70% of the book in one day.

Once I got to the last few lines I found myself tearing up. Not for anything particular except that it was the end. I've come to love these characters. Quinn, Avery, Sadie, Colton, Chase, Alexis, even Carson. I was tearing up simply because it was over. While I am super excited for what Trisha has planned next I will miss these characters dearly. I can feel myself starting to tear up as I finish this review. The With Visions of Red series has a proud place on my bookshelf and when With Ties That Bind is available I know they will, too. I also have an inkling that these will be some of the few books that I actually reread. I give this book 5 quills. Overall, I give the series 5 quills. 6 if I could. If you love dark and twisty, or you're looking to dive in, I highly recommend this!!

Book Review | Collide by Michelle Madow


Title: Collide 
Author: Michelle Madow
Release Date: February 9th 2017
Published By: Dreamscape Publishing
Page Amount: 308 pages, Kindle Edition

GoodReads Blurb:
I should have died when I was shot at the Halloween dance.

Instead I woke up—one week earlier, in a parallel universe where my mom's fatal car accident six months ago never happened.

A world with my mom still in it was all I ever wanted. But in this timeline, everything is different—my grades, my friends, and even my boyfriend. I'm a stranger in my own body, and I don’t like who I’ve become.

But one thing is the same—that shooting will still happen at the end of the week.

I'm the only one who knows. Which means I'm the only one who can stop it.

But first I need to convince someone—anyone—that I’m telling the truth... and then get them to help me.


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. I've been much more selective in taking on review books but when I got the e-mail from Michelle I just knew that I had to review this one. This was a very fast paced that definitely kept me flipping the pages. It was hard to stop because I really wanted to know what happened. The characters were pretty good, too and easy enough to relate to. It's funny how I started off liking Jake but then ended up liking Zac. I like Zac more than Jake and that's really all I can say without giving away a spoiler.

I always found the Many Worlds Theory fascinating so I was really excited when it popped up in this book. I like that Michelle worked that in although I do wish we'd gotten some more answers. It didn't ruin the book for me but I wish that they were there. It was also sometimes a little too fast paced and I wished that there more detail or showing, or more feeling from the character.

And the school shooter was to one dimensional for me. I know I was seeing them through Anna's eyes but there wasn't enough to them for me. We didn't see enough of them. And there was only contempt for them which I understand 100% but I wish there was some more dimension to that whole situation and character. Then again, I always want to get into the minds of people when something like that happens. Pick it apart. I've always really been one for understanding the "villain".

Overall, it was an enjoyable read. I think I'd give it 3.25 quills.

Release Blitz | Crown of Lies by Pepper Winters

“I met the boy I wanted. But then he vanished and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”


Crown of Lies is NOW LIVE! 


“I met the boy I wanted. But then he vanished and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”

Noelle Charlston lived a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security.

However, two meetings with two men changed her happy existence forever. First, she met the boy who made her heart sing. Second, she met the man who made her blood quiver.

Noelle’s freedom was no longer hers. It belonged to the man her father believed was the perfect match. The man who pulled his lies over everyone he touched.
Including her.

Seduced and manipulated, Noelle lives two lives. The one everyone sees on the outside and the one no one sees on the inside. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he webs—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she’d been and turn her into something else.

Until her past collides with her present.
And it’s her turn to lie.
To everyone…including herself.

Finn Cohen isn’t a survivalist. He likes computers and internet-researched his way into the final round of contenders for a new type of reality show. The premise? Spend 30 days on a deserted island with a woman he’s never met, and pass the tests the producers give them. Sounds easy enough. He just hopes he gets stuck with the hot chick he can’t stop staring at. 
Penniless is exactly what Jessa McDaniel is. She’s living in her car, working under the table wherever she can…which, without a high school education is about all she can do. She needs to get on the show. She needs the money. Jessa is confident she can survive. She’s been doing it since she was old enough to remember. She just hopes the producers don’t put her with the stupid guy that keeps staring at her.

Will the pair last thirty days under harsh conditions? Or will the producers’ tasks have them crying Mayday sooner than we’d like?

Two souls. One goal: Sink or Swim.
