My name is Vicious. God-given name, I cross my heart.

And it fits.

I’m a hot-as-f, inked-up tattoo artist at the trendiest shop in the Rocky Mountains.

I have the looks, I have the bike, I have the reputation.

That means I get the ladies.

Sure. There are lots of women out there who hate tattoos. Wouldn’t be caught dead with guys like me. And that’s fine. I’m not looking for girls like that.

I’m looking for that other kind of girl.

The wild one, the bad one, the crazy one.

Funny thing is… the one I fell for isn’t that girl.

She’s the Good Girl.

And maybe back when she was nineteen I came off as a ‘maybe’, but after seven years of distance I am now the definition of ‘not a keeper’.

But I can be a keeper.

can make the good girl swoon.

can be the dream guy she never saw coming.

If she would just… not press charges… I’m pretty sure I can turn this whole relationship around.

Vic Vaughn is Vicious is a bad-boy-trying-his best-to-win-her-back romantic comedy about a misunderstood tattoo-artist-biker called Vicious and a good girl named Daisy who ghosted him seven years ago after she came to her senses. It’s filled with funny twists, dreams of grandeur, and all seven members of the most inappropriate family in all of Colorado.

Book Blitz & Giveaway - Keeper of Souls by Harper Ray

Keeper of Souls
(The Revenant Trilogy, #1)
Author: Harper Ray
Publication Date: June 29th, 2021
Genre: NA Paranormal

Book Description:
“What would you do if Death gave you a second chance?”

Most people who escaped death were relieved, happy to be granted that second chance at life. In my case, it was more of a curse than a blessing.

Everyday I woke, I was tortured with another soul. They all wanted something from me, but I couldn’t give it to them. Instead, I ignored them. I neglected the pain they had laced beneath their hollow eyes. I dismissed the screams that shattered my eardrums every time my head hit the pillow.

The souls took pleasure in patronizing me. They were a constant reminder of why I shouldn’t have been granted a second chance.

I had managed to escape Death twice, but the third time was my undoing. He came back with a heavy vengeance. Suddenly, I was thrown into a battle between two brothers. Heaven and Hell. Light versus Dark.

They both needed me on their side, but after facing Death for the third time, I wasn’t sure I would survive the cruel fate he had planned.

BOOK REVIEW: Anna by Meghan Riley

Author: Meghan Riley
Genre: YA Fantasy / Coming of Age / Romance / Sci-Fi
Publication Date: 29th August 2013

Book Description:
Just your average high school science geek…or not? When a haphazard smattering of freckles on her arm start to change causing a series of unnerving hallucinations and odd side effects that only Anna seems to notice, she can’t help but wonder if she’s losing her mind or if there truly is something to the visions. Her roller coaster senior year of high school may make it easy for her to live in denial, but she'll soon learn what you don't know about yourself could kill you. Will you see the clues before Anna does?

Buy Links:


Anna Stuart is your average high school kid trying to get through life after the death of her father, who died while on duty in Afghanistan. With her younger brother rebelling and her mother struggling to keep everything in order, the only semblance of escape and normality Anna has to rely on is the company of her best friend, Heather, and her school crush, Steve McCormick, one of the most popular guys in school who barely knows she’s alive. Things start to change, however, when Anna notices strange freckles on her arm that she links to the hallucinations that start to invade her life. Is Anna losing the plot or is there more behind these strange freckles?

As a coming of age romance, the book pans out well. The problem is that a coming of age romance was not what was promised. I was expecting a fantasy novel but the book barely showcased much fantasy elements. The priority was on Anna and Steve and how she felt about him. I didn’t mind the interaction and chemistry between Anna and Steve but it took up the majority of the story, and I was really looking forward to exploring the fantasy elements, but they were ignored and pushed aside in favour of a rather mundane story. I didn’t expect to finish the book, but I found Anna to be a very likeable character that I stuck with it to find out the cause behind the freckles.

It was just an okay read for me. I was promised a different adventure, and I suppose that left me feeling disappointed.

BOOK REVIEW: Goodnight, Campsite by Loretta Sponslor

Goodnight, Campsite
Author: Loretta Sponsler
Genre: Children's Picture Book
Publication Date: 20th November 2015

Book Description:
Children love books, almost as much as they love camping! “Goodnight, Campsite,” is the perfect place for young readers to start a great outdoor adventure and discover camping options along the way – options from tents to various recreational vehicles (RVs).

“Goodnight, Campsite,” is set in a beautiful nature park. The story follows visitors as they explore the park during the day (hiking, biking, fishing, etc.), and then returns with them to their campsite at night.

Preschool-aged children will love the beautiful and colorful pictures – and searching for the squirrel hiding in the pictures. Rhyming text will keep children engaged, as they build sound associations and phonemic skills.

Also included in the book is a Campsite Bingo game!

Buy Links:


Good illustrations and rhymes but I think this one will miss the mark with the targeted audience. It wasn't exciting enough to retain one's full attention and it's focus on a camping experience for adults rather than for kids may not bode well with young readers. It was an okay read albeit somewhat tedious.

Doesn’t matter if he does make my knees weak and my heart race. I’m not giving in!

I don’t even mind that she’s an exhibitionist, as long as no one touches. Doesn’t matter to me her uncles were both rotten to the core. The Devil’s Fury may think she belongs to them, but I have other plans. Alora will be mine — no matter the cost.

WARNING: Rooster is part of the Devil’s Boneyard MC series. There are adult situations and bad language. No cliffhanger. Happily-ever-after and laughter guaranteed!
