Interview with N.B. Baker

cpver

Hello Everyone!!

I am here today with N.B. Baker! Thank you so much for doing this interview with us! So, Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

Baker: I’m married and a mother of 4 (including 2 furbabies). One of my furbabies is named Kiera from the Thoughtless series! I work full time in the financial world (boring – lol). I’m totally addicted to coffee and Charlie Hunnam!!

ARABB: Ooh I LOVE Charlie Hunnam to!! He is such a HOTTIE! So what books have you written?

Baker: Everything is my debut novel.

ARABB: Thats awesome! What Genre is your book?

Baker: Contemporary Romance

ARABB: What is your current Work in Progress and if you are working on one, can we have a sneak peak?

Baker: Belong is my WIP – it’s been a long process and I still have a ways to go. It’s the story of Justin and Sarah from Everything. I really can’t wait to share this!

“Look, I like Leila and all, but you’re my girl. I’m taking care of you! Well, I mean if that’s alright with you. I want you to come stay with me, even if you only stay long enough to get back on your feet. My place is nothing special but you’ll be safe there. I promise that! Nothing, and I mean nothing will ever hurt you again. Not as long as there’s a breath left in me.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Come on Kitten, what do you say we chase the sunset?”
He opens up the throttle and we’re off. I wrap my arms tightly around his waist as the wind rushes past us. Nothing but miles and miles of empty highway in front of us. It feels like we’re the only two people in the world and it’s ours for the taking. Without thinking I let go of his waist raising my arms into the air as if I’m trying to reach the heavens. I feel like my soul has just taken its first breath. I yell as loud as I can “THIS IS AWESOME!” Justin looks back over his shoulder and gives me that classic Justin smirk and we go even faster.

ARABB: WOW! Can’t wait to 1-click that one! Do you think that a Cover on a book plays an important part in the buying process?

Baker: I think the cover is a huge part of the story. The cover is the stories personality all wrapped into one image.

ARABB: Who are some of your favorite authors?

Baker: SC Stephens
Kim Karr
Gail McHugh
AL Jackson
Tammara Webber
Tina Reber

ARABB: VERY good choices! What are your TOP 5 Favorite Books?

Baker: Oh, this is so tough!
(not in any special order)
Thoughtless Series – SC Stephens
Torn Series – Kim Karr
Collide & Pulse – Gail McHugh
The Regret Series – AL Jackson
Easy – Tammara Webber
Love Unscripted & Love Unrehearsed – Tina Reber
(There’s six sorry)

ARABB: Yea I know hard question! I don’t think I could even list my top 5. lol Favorite books quotes?

Baker: Oh wow!! My mind just went totally blank!! LOL

“You’re my Everything.”
“I will love you forever and a day.”
(Chance St. John from Everything)

“My world begins and ends with you.”
(Justin Troma from Belong)

ARABB: For your own reading pleasure, do you prefer ebooks or traditional paper back books?

Baker: I like ebooks because of their convenience, but a traditional paper back holds my heart! There’s just something about the feel of the pages in my fingers. Knowing that the rest of the story is just waiting for you on the next page.

ARABB: Im an ebook kinda girl, BUT I love my paperbacks too!!! What hobbies do you have?

Baker: My world is very full so when I have an extra minute of free time I love to write. Sometimes it’s just a couple of sentences before I’m interrupted but it’s what I love and will squeeze it in whenever I can!

ARABB: What famous person would you like to meet and why?

Baker: I would love to meet any of these amazing ladies! SC Stephens, Kim Karr, Gail McHugh, AL Jackson or Tammara Webber
I would also love to meet Charlie Hunnam, but to be honest I would probably just babble and end up drooling all over myself.

ARABB: I agree with you! Charlie would be nice to meet but I would probably just sit and stare lol Do you have a Book Boyfriend???? If so who and from what book?

Baker: My favorite will always be Kellan Kyle!!! He stole my heart and kept it!! After Chance St. John and Justin Troma of course! 🙂

ARABB: I LOVE me sum Kellan!! Perfect guy!!!!  Thank you sooo much for doing this interview with us and sharing a sneak peak of your WIP! Do you have any links that you would like to share so we can all stalk you?

Author Interview on S.J. Sawyer

Author Interview with S.J. Sawyer!!!

SJUntitled

Welcome Everyone!

Today We are VERY lucky to be interviewing S.J. Sawyer!!!

ARABB: Hi S.J. Sawyer, thank you for agreeing to this interview. So tell us a little bit about yourself an your background?

Sawyer: I am a twenty something author/photographer who lives in southern Oklahoma. I have a husband and three children: eighteen, five, and two (our eighteen year old is adopted!) I’ve been a writer all my life, always keeping secret stashes of notebooks around. Oops! Guess that one is out of the bag! I have a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature that took me five years to acquire thanks to my nasty habit of changing majors.

ARABB: So what books have you written?

Sawyer: Currently, I have four published books. Sealed series: Sealed, Teased, and Severed (a series novella). Like A Lady serial: Big Girl Panties. Sealed is now available free on Amazon and Google Play. Severed is also free, but it is not a full length novel (and should only be read after Teased to prevent spoilers!). It is actually a compilation of excerpts originally posted to my website as a gift to all the Kreed Jones lovers out there.

ARABB: Don’t we all LOVE FREE books!!! What Genre are your books?

Sawyer: Sealed series is contemporary romance while Like A Lady is New Adult. Having said that, my writing style is completely character led. Sealed series contains stories from various characters’ points of view, and because of their different personalities, some books are more explicit than others.

ARABB: What hobbies do you have?

Sawyer: Obviously, I’m a reader and writer. I think that is first and foremost a hobby because it is done for pleasure. As I stated in my bio section, I’m also a photographer. I love taking the perfect image for someone, capturing their life moment and preserving it.

ARABB: OK So, what are you Favorite TOP 5 Books?

Sawyer: Wow–I only get five! How is a book girl supposed to answer that? I’m going to cheat just a bit and include whole series because I can’t really pick one from the series…that just is NOT fair to the others!

Pride and Prejudice-Jane Austen
The Song of Ice and Fire series (also known to most as Game of Thrones…haha)-George R.R. Martin
The Time Traveler’s Wife-Audrey Niffenegger
With Me in Seattle series-Kristen Proby
Too Far series-Abbi Glines

ARABB: Dang good list of books!!! I know it is hard just to pick only 5! So, what is your favorite book quotes?

Sawyer: In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you–Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen (I’m sure you are noticing the theme by now…haha!)

Please, just call it big. Don’t call it pretty. That hurts its feelings.–Rush Finlay, Forever Too Far, Abbi Glines

Nat, how do you spell orgasm?
You don’t spell it, you feel it.–The Montgomery Girls, Play With Me, Kristen Proby

There’s also a certain quote that I love from Fifty Shades of Gray involving paperwork, but I’m not going to quote it. I’m sure you know it!

ARABB: Of Course we know that FSOG quote! I love it too!! While we talking books, do you think that a Cover on a book plays an important part in the buying process?

Sawyer: YES! I am a cover girl. If I like the cover, I’ll read the book. I’m not really a blurb reader because I know how forced that can be for an author. I am awful at selling my books through a blurb because those few words are so nerve wracking for me. Because of that, my blurbs tend to be short, sweet and to the point. I have been sidetracked, though, so back to covers…I think covers are very important to marketing a book. They seem to set the tone for the book. I also love teaser images (hunting for ever in search of the right image to match the characters and the quotes!) and really enjoy creating both.

ARABB: Yea, Im the kinda girl that looks at covers before I even read the blurb! For your own reading pleasure, do you prefer ebooks or traditional paper back books?

Sawyer: I prefer a paper back, but having younger children, it is much more convenient to have an ebook. Sadly, I’m almost completely reading on ebook these day.

ARABB: Sad to say I like my ebooks better because I can carry more than one book on my Kindle lol! Do you have a Book Boyfriend???? If so who and from what book?

Sawyer: I’m claiming dibs on Trevor Rossi (Sealed series) because he came from my head, and therefore, he’s mine. I’m also claiming dibs on Mr. Darcy and Rush Finlay because they are amazing book boyfriends! I’ll share, though.

ARABB: MMMM good choices!! How about Do you have a Crush on a Certain Model or Actor? If so who?

Sawyer: I have mad love for Ian Somerholder on many, many levels…the least of which is not his gorgeous, smoldering eyes and philanthropic heart. It’s a killer combination. I’m a huge Vampire Diaries/Originals fan. So, naturally, I also love Joseph Morgan. Hmm, maybe I just have a thing for “misunderstood” bad, boys!

ARABB: Oh you naughty girl with your “misunderstood Bad Boyz”!! What is your current Work in Progress and if you have one can you tell us about it??

Sawyer: I have several projects that I’m actively working on, and I have several projects that are simmering in the back of my mind for next year! I’m working on the rest of the Like A Lady serial. There will be four parts total, and the second, Hide Your Crazy, will release in early May. I am also working on the next installments of the Sealed series, Secured and Tethered. They will go live in June.

ARABB: oooo <<Rubbing my Hands together>> cant wait to read your future works!! Thank you so much for being with us today and taking time away from writing to do this interview! If the fans would like to follow you do you have any links you can share with them?

Sawyer: I love when people stalk me, but be warned, I might stalk you back! I love connecting with other readers because I really, really enjoy the reading experience.

I love you. Three little words which made Chris Caldwell run as hard and as fast as he could from any woman. Love had nothing to do with his desires; he had plenty of women wanting to share his bed for a night of wild abandon. Until Isabella…
She turned his world upside-down with her sexy body and sultry smile. Chris originally thought to just make her the next of his conquests. Instead she turned him upside down and in love for the first time. She made him want the trappings of love and maybe even marriage. Something he has never desired in his life.
But as Chris goes to bring in yet another shipment for the drug lords, his family is betrayed. Will he make it home to his beautiful woman or will the Feds finally take him down in a fiery blaze?

Just a taste of Nemesis...

Seeming to not take ‘no’ for an answer, she stepped into the shower. As I turned around to face her, she wrapped her arms around my neck, pressing her hot smooth body against mine. She opened her mouth and covered mine with her tender red lips as her warm, wet tongue started dancing back and forth deep inside my mouth. Who did I think I was kidding? I can’t seem to help myself when this beautiful woman is involved. She had gone to such great lengths to deceive me just for the chance to have sex with me. I cupped her ass with one hand as I fondled her firm breasts with the other. My god, she’s so damn hot I can barely hold on to her. The shower stall was small and I pushed her against the wall, letting the hot water spray on my back. She put her hand behind my head to bring my mouth closer to hers. We groped each other like savage beasts; our lips remained in a passionate kiss which seemed like it could last forever. I swear, I’ve been with a few women, but never have I felt this animalistic desire to want to fuck another woman as much as I wanted her. I couldn’t wait another moment, needing to have her right now. So I picked her up, with our lips still locked in a passionate kiss, carrying her off to my bedroom. As I laid her wet body on my bed, she let go of me long enough for me to find the harden nipples of her breasts with my mouth. She started moaning as I sucked on each one and then buried my face between the soft mounds of her beautiful breasts, her hands pulling at my hair. I took hold of her hands and held them above her head as I ravished her body with kisses, biting my way up her neck and finally stopped on her succulent, sizzling, hot lips. She took my lower lip in her teeth and then sucked my tongue into to her mouth for a long passionate, wet kiss. “Oh god Chris, I want you inside of me. Please take me now!” she said, breathing heavily against my mouth. She lifted her knees and spread her legs to give me access. I thought about taking her right then and there; fucking her hard and fast, but the sight of her legs spread along with the beauty of that small patch of blonde hair fashioned in the shape of a heart, beckoned my tongue like a magnet to the soft moist lips protecting her womanhood. I buried my tongue deep inside until I found her sweet spot, and as I tortured her clit with my tongue, she grabbed me by my hair holding me tight against her.

My Review of Nemesis...

 I was given a complimentary copy of this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

This book takes place a short time after the end of Satyriasis. Once again, Chris is up to his old antics of chasing women.. until… Isabella. They meet in school and she may just be the one to tame Chris and his wild ways.

The first half of this book, I would have given 3 stars. Then around the half way point, things starting changing.  The first half is more of same antics from the first 2 books.  The girls are always fighting to get the attention of Chris.   At around 50% in, things starting picking up. I feel like Chris started maturing. There was more action, than just in the bedroom and the story line picked up.  And the ending…. I was shocked. Definitely didn’t see it coming.

I’ve read all 3 books in this series and I could definitely see a huge progression in J.C’s writing from book 1 to book 3.

3 1/2 stars

A little something about Jc Black

JcBlack-BioPic

J.C Black was born in Memphis, Tennessee and grew up in the Florida Keys. I grew up in the ship building trade and became an expert in my field at a young age and made me very popular in the boating industry. I grew up in a time that the local fisherman were losing their homes and boats so they turned to smuggling to make a living. A lot of the people were friends of mine before they chose a life of crime and remained my friends for many years after, until the law caught up with them and put them in prison. I’ve been writing on and off for the last couple of years, but writing romance came from my love of women. Yes, it was a good life with the coconut trees, the great sandy white beaches and of course the beautiful women. I still get inspiration from the beautiful women and the sunsets. I love taking long walks on the beach, riding my Harley and enjoying life. I loved growing up in the Florida Keys, it was like paradise. Beautiful sunsets to inspire my life and beautiful women to inspire my writing. I love fast cars and fast boats and sometimes I would enjoy a race or two. I loved the sea and would spend as much of my time as I could I out in the ocean fishing, but of course that was at a time you could come home with a cooler full of fish. I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I was younger, but I had the whole Caribbean to explore so it didn’t matter back then. If you ever find yourself down my way, I will be the guy leaning against a coconut tree on the beach, watching another beautiful sunset and if I happen to say “hi” don’t be shy.

Synopsis:

Tensions rise, secrets grow bigger, and passions run deeper—and hotter—in Last Light, the second novel of the Night Owl Trilogy from bestselling author M. Pierce.

Matt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that left only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead.

Hannah Catalano is guarding a secret: she knows Matt is alive. After Matt’s memorial service, she lingers on the East Coast with his family, but it soon becomes clear that his brothers’ motives are less than gracious. Nate Sky is bent on tracking down the author of Night Owl, a book that charts the last days of Matt’s life with uncanny and scandalous accuracy, and which appeared only after his death. Seth Sky is bent on getting Hannah into his bed.

Hidden away in the woods, Matt and Hannah strive desperately to maintain their ruse and their relationship—but their web of lies only tightens as Matt struggles with the consequences of his decision, and Hannah tries to escape Nate’s libel suit and fend off Seth’s advances…until Hannah is put in danger, and Matt must make a life or death choice.

Excerpt

Sleeping on the couch is a bitch.

My back ached even after my morning run, even after a round of sit-ups and stretches—and a long, hot, lonely shower.

            As I padded past the bedroom, a towel around my waist, I tried the knob once more.

            Still locked.

            I pressed my ear to the door and frowned.

            Hannah had been bunkered in our bedroom all night and most of this morning. It was nearly noon. The AC ticked on and I sighed, roaming back to the kitchen.

            “I am definitely in the doghouse,” I muttered to Laurence.

            A notepad on the counter contained my list for the day.

            FIX SHIT

–        Talk about things w/Hannah (money, therapy, Chrissy)

–        Date (picnic or dinner)

I peeled off the note and wrote another.

Hannah baby, please come out. You can’t stay in there forever. I’m sorry. I love you. I need clothes. XO

            I knocked gently on the bedroom door before slipping the note beneath it. Then I retreated to the TV room.

            Several minutes later, I heard the door squeak open and clap shut.

            I returned to find it locked, a pair of my socks folded on the floor beside a note.

            Here you go.

            Grinning, I turned over her note and wrote another.

Where am I supposed to wear these? Or am I supposed to use them for something else? Take pity on a half-naked man. It’s getting chilly out here.

            I flicked my reply under the door, then sat on the floor and waited. Soon I heard Hannah rustling in the bedroom. The door opened a crack and a T-shirt flew out.

            She slammed it shut quickly.

            Click went the lock.

            “Goddamn it, Hannah.”

            I pulled on the T-shirt and shot another note under the door.

            Is this your way of saying you want to see my dick? So coy . . .

            A moment later, the door opened and a pair of sweatpants hit me in the face.

            Slam!—click.

            “Hannah!” I lunged against the door. “Baby bird?”

            No reply.

God, women are fucking mysterious.

synopsis

We live. We love. We die.
He is my ultimate undoing.
She is my strength.
He will destroy me.
She will make me whole.
I need him more than the control that he craves.
I need her more than I need my next breath.
He knows me.
She sees me.
As much as I want to, I can’t let him in.
As much as I’ve tried, I can’t let her go.
Together, we need him.

about-the-author

When J.M. isn’t working her Monday-Friday 9-5 job, she’s spending her time reading, writing and with the love of her life.

She’s an all-around Canadian girl. Born and raised in a small city.

If you don’t see J.M. writing, you’ll find her with her nose in a book. Whether it’s her words or someone else’s, she’s drawn to it.

J.M. loves stories with Alpha broken males and that need to be ripped apart and put back together again. Men that fall to their knees over a wink or a giggle from their females.

Two things you will never find J.M. without; her cell phone and lip gloss. If she has both of those items, you have a happy girl.

Since starting her writing adventure in 2013, J.M. has met many people, real life, online, in her head and she loves every single one of them. Without the support from others, none of this would be possible and she’s grateful for all that has been given to her.

review

*** 3 1/2 stars ***

I was given an unedited arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I need to start by saying, I wanted to love this book. It had so many great pieces that unfortunately didn’t fit together for me. There were also quite a few plot holes that made it a little hard to follow at times.

This is the story of dependency. It’s a look inside relationships and how they ultimately grow or get destroyed based on your actions. It takes a close look at those demons we all lock away that come bubbling to the surface when we least expect it.

You have Hope, Xander and Caiden who are all very co-dependent on each other, in some form. The dependency is borderline unhealthy in some aspects. Xander and Caiden are best friends, yet Caiden holds 3 pretty big secrets from him (and a few smaller ones). Then you have Xander and Hope who dated when they were younger, up until Hope left town unexpectedly. They cross paths again, but their relationship is still toxic. I had to stop reading a few times because as much as Xander and Hope love each other, I couldn’t help but wonder…. why are they trying to make this work? Xander came across very selfish and Hope came across extremely weak. At what point do you realize that this other person isn’t your missing puzzle piece?

This book is full of secrets and heartache. You are given small clues a long the way that you have to figure out. Some you will and others you won’t see coming.

I gave this 3 1/2 stars.

Rape. One word changed his life. Mason Tredwell had it all. He was a good looking, well-respected doctor. He had money, power, and friends. He never worried about finding a woman to warm his bed. But that all changed when he was wrongfully accused of rape. And now, after five years in prison and the loss of everything he cared about, he wanted revenge.

Abandoned as a baby and bounced around different foster homes, Kat Gingham never really had a charmed life. But now, things were really falling apart. She had no money, no job, and even her lying, cheating boyfriend was gone too. She allowed herself one night to cry about her situation before she picked herself back up. But when she woke up, she was no longer at home, and she was no longer alone. She was facing Mason, a guy who claimed she ruined his life. And he’s hell-bent on breaking her down, humiliating her, making her feel like he has all these years.

She claimed she had no clue what he was talking about, but he didn’t believe her. The facts don’t lie.

Was Kat lying? Could she convince Mason to let her go? Or was fate playing a role in why they were thrown into this together?

I have been writing for as long as I could remember. It started as poems as birthday and anniversary presents (they were super cheesy and all rhymed), moved onto monologues and short stories, then transitioned into fan fictions (yep, there are a few of mine floating around somewhere), and then I found the courage to publish a book. And I loved it! And so I didn’t stop.

I also love to read – I think that’s pretty much a prerequisite for writing. I read anything that sounds good and/or is recommended to me, but I tend to enjoy love stories or ones that make me cry.

A couple of fun facts about me: I work at an insurance company, but I get to work with my sister, so it’s fun; I have a loving and supportive husband; I am SUPER close to my family (like I talk to them several times a day – even my in-laws); I love to listen to the same song over and over again until my hubby says it’s been played out 20 repeats ago hehe; I dance around the house for fun. I think I’ve shared enough embarrassing tidbits.

One last thing – I have the best readers & fans!

OUAA synopsis

He’s trying to protect his heart…
She’s a shell of the girl she once was…
Can he chase away the demons threatening to destroy her?

Mackenzie Delano craves control. After tragedy strikes during her freshman year of college, she compensates for the helplessness she felt by micro-managing every aspect of her life, from her business life to her social life…to her love life. But she wasn’t expecting to cross paths with a mysterious man who seems to invade her every thought.

Tyler Burnham has been living his life with one rule in mind…never fall in love. Focusing solely on his career, he is able to remain a detached observer of life… Until a case is dropped in his lap, forcing him to form an intimate relationship with a sharp-tongued woman in order to obtain the location of a man deemed an enemy of the State.

When Tyler finds himself falling for Mackenzie, will he be able push his feelings aside and recover the information he needs? Or will he put the mission and their lives at risk to follow his heart?

Chasing The Dragon is the first installment of a two part series of deception and betrayal where nothing is as it seems.

***Note – Chasing The Dragon is the first book in a two-book duet and is a spin-off of T.K. Leigh’s USA Today Best Selling Beautiful Mess series. It is not necessary to have read that series in order to read this duet, but it will contain a mild spoiler from the third book in the Beautiful Mess series, Gorgeous Chaos.***

OUAA About Author

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is the USA Today Best Selling author of the Beautiful Mess series. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). She always had a knack for writing, but mostly in the legal field. It wasn’t until recently that she decided to try her hand at creative writing and is now addicted to creating different characters and new and unique story lines in the Contemporary Romantic Suspense genre.

When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found running and training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall). Unlike Olivia, the main character in her Beautiful Mess series, she has yet to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
