Save Me by LJ Baker blog tour stop

Buy it HERE


Andi was doing just fine on her own. Sure the world had been hit with an outbreak that turned anyone infected into flesh eating zombies. Not to mention that everyone she ever loved was now dead. She was alive though, taking care of herself. She had little desire to indulge in building relationships with anyone. People just couldn't be trusted. Whether they screwed you over intentionally, or just managed to get themselves killed, no one stuck around for very long. She didn't need anyone else either. That was until Will showed up to save her.
Will, with his sparkling green eyes, lips you just wanted to taste, and insanely adorable crooked smile, wasn't letting Andi get rid of him so easily. Yet still, Andi did everything she could to push her feelings, and Will, away. The more time they spent together though, the more difficult that became. In a world where another day was not something you could count on, wasting even a single moment, could mean missing out on your only chance for happiness.

I am a YA nut and I LOVED this book! Throw in some zombies and heart stopping terror and you have this nerd girl in book heaven. 
Andi has been on her own for a while. After the virus hit and the zombie apocalypse began, she was with her parents for a while in the relative safety of her basement. They got too comfortable and ventured out too much and that's when she lost her family. Andi was doing an ok job of staying alive on her own, but one day she needed saving and Will showed up out of the blue to open a can on some undead ass and save her from certain death. She was grateful, but not looking to be part of a group again. Will though was hungry for companionship and wanted to stay with this surly girl even though she pushed him away. Soon though Andi opens up and finds herself feeling very comfortable with Will and possibly falling for him. 
I really enjoyed this book. It had a bit of everything I love; drama, horror, suspense and a love story. <3 I loved Will and Andi's drama. Does he like me? Does she like me? The jealousy when Dan and Janet enter the picture just adds fuel to the fire. The group eventually ends up traveling to a safe camp where more drama ensues.
It was a wild ride that had me fearful, sad, happy and eager for more! I would definitely give this one 5 stars!! Great job LJ Baker! I can't wait for the next one.

 ~MEET L J Baker~

L J lives on the Jersey Shore with her husband, four kids, two cats, and an inherited dog from  hell (a.k.a. the sewer gremlin).  Though writing has always been her first passion, she got a degree in psychological counseling and worked in the mental health field for awhile, which she finds very helpful in dealing with her crazy family.  She is a lover of all different types of music and books, switching between genres so wildly it sometimes makes people wonder if she has multiple personalities.  She is most likely to be found writing romance stories of all kinds (contemporary, erotic, new adult, young adult, fantasy, etc.) and has just finished writing her first book, Save Me. When she's not writing, she prefers to spend her time reading, taking photos, or spending time with her family.



When Dan emerged from the bathroom showered and freshly shaved, he was unrecognizable. If I wasn't positive that no one else was in the basement, I would have swore it was a completely different person. He shaved off the beard entirely and trimmed his hair to a manageable mop of dark curls that fell around his face haphazardly. It was easy to see his age like this. His crystal blue eyes stood out, captivating me. He was absolutely beautiful. He was dressed in a pair of old jeans that hung low on his hips and had a t-shirt slung over his bare, muscled shoulder. Without realizing it, I was staring, mouth dropped open. I'm surprised I didn't have drool dripping down my chin. Obviously enjoying my attention, or maybe my shock, Dan's lopsided smirk grew into a full on smile, revealing his perfect teeth. No one should look this good during a zombie apocalypse. I could feel the warmth spread across my cheeks in what I was sure was a deep red blush. Twenty minutes ago, Dan looked like a young Hagrid. Now he was looking like he was ready to grace the covers of a fitness magazine. Will cleared his throat loudly, breaking my stare.
"Oh don't you look hot!" Janet teased, tousling his wet hair.
"I think some people might say that," Dan said looking in my direction, winking, sending my blush further across my blazing face.
Janet's gaze flashed up and down over me, one eyebrow raised. She let out a huff bordering on disgust, and headed back to the kitchen to check on dinner. Ignoring Will's continued death glare, Dan walked over to me, lifting my chin to once again look at him.
"What do you think?" Dan asked, batting thick lashes over his hypnotizing eyes, stealing my breath from my throat.
"You, uh, you look, fine," I stuttered, lost for words.
I could feel the heat from his body between us. My mind went blank of any rational thoughts, leaving behind only sensations. I was aware of the pounding of my heart and my breath, loud in my own ears. His thick fingers slid up from my chin, behind my ear, then down and past my neck. His knuckles brushed down to the point of my v-neck t-shirt before moving back up, stroking across my warm cheek, before dropping his hand down to rest on my shoulder. I thought I was about to hyperventilate.
"Do I?" Dan asked, snapping me back to reality.
"Huh? What?"
I had no idea what he was talking about. I could feel Will's stare burning into me from across the room.
Dan laughed, kissing the top of my head, and went to join Janet in the kitchen. I was left standing there wondering what the hell just happened.
"Seriously?" Will asked, walking over to me, looking irritated.
"I thought you two were going to skip dinner and just go right for dessert."

Ixeos Rebellion by Jennings Wright

By Jennings Wright

With rebel leader Darian free at last, the humans and outsiders on Ixeos must find a way to join forces and defeat the Firsts. The problem? All slaves are tracked with GPS, the Firsts are the only ones with power, and roving gangs hate the rebels just as much as they hate the aliens. As Darian and the outsiders from Earth travel the globe through the mysterious tunnels in Paris, they learn that the Firsts are preparing to launch another wave of biological warfare. With a transporter that will allow the aliens to target any city, anywhere on the planet, the rebels know they must stop them at all costs. As things get more dangerous on Ixeos, the outsiders find that they're pushed to their limit. Will they fight for freedom, no matter the price?

Unleashed by Melissa Pearl Release day!!

Release Day for Melissa Pearl

The Trilogy is Complete!

Check Out Books 1&2:

Book One:



Darkness is covering the land. As the city of Mezrah grows with power and greed, the rest of the world can only stand by and wait for their inevitable destruction. The only hope against this growing power is an ancient prophecy that people have stopped believing in.

Then a star begins to fall.

Princess Kyla of Taramon stopped believing in the power of light the day her father died. Trapped in a city she does not care for, under the watchful glare of her mother, the queen, she struggles to accept her fate.

Then a star begins to fall.

Jethro has loved Kyla for as long as he can remember. Learning that she was to marry his cousin drove a wedge between him and the feisty princess. Watching her from a distance is a torture he is unable to free himself from.

Then a star begins to fall, sparking an ember of hope and sending two seekers on a treacherous journey into the unknown.

**Now on sale for only 99 cents!**


Book Two:



Danger surrounds the Seekers. Having already faced overwhelming odds, Kyla and Jethro discover it is only the beginning. Now they must face the power of nature itself.

Each day is a test of faith.

Two elements remain undiscovered. The light is yet to be resurrected. Dark forces prepare to descend upon the heroes of prophecy and they have one more power they must over come...their forbidden love for each other.

Each moment is a test of loyalty and courage.

In Taramon, Athra faces his own demons as he frets over the safety of his fiancée while trying to counter a dark evil that is brought to his doorstep. Treachery lurks in the shadows, forcing the future king into an action that could destroy his beloved city.

Through it all, they must cling to the truths hidden in the unseen.


Book Three:



The prophecy has failed. As Athra lies in the dungeons of Taramon with his defeated army, this is all he can believe. His city has been torn apart. He has failed his people and all that awaits him is an agonising death.

But the light has been found.

Ashan and his dark army proceed in gloating triumph. Safeer heads to Mezrah with Taramon's women and children, while the rest of his men remain in the northern city, forcing their prisoners to tear it down stone by stone.

But two sparks have been ignited.

Kyla and Jethro learn of Taramon's demise and, with the children, formulate a plan to rescue their people and bring an end to the overpowering darkness. It will take all their strength and every ounce of faith they possess...

But a furious light is about to be unleashed.

The bookish ramblings of a reading mom

It's been a real long while since I've had the time to sit and write anything. Lately my blog posts have been full of reviews, spotlights, cover reveals and not much of my own voice. I need to fix that and write to you all more often.
First off, thank you all that take the time to stop by and read my blog. Reading is my life and sharing what I read has become my passion. For the first 30 years of my life I didn't really have any one thing that I was really passionate about (besides my husband). Then when I turned 30 and had my first daughter that all changed. Suddenly I became passionate about a lot of things. First it was all about parenting and raising my beautiful daughters. Then a few years into the whole mom gig, I began to realize that I needed to have something that was just for me. Reading has always been one of my favorite ways to escape. So I started using books as my "me" time. I would let the hubster take care of the girls for about an hour and go someplace quiet to read. It was my new found moments of zen.
 Then one day I stumbled across a newly formed book club that met close to where I live. Oh joy of joys! It
was like the angels were smiling down on me. And the best part is, this book club is genre specific!! They read paranormal & fantasy. Had I died and gone to heaven? No probably not, but I was so extremely happy to have a place to go to talk about books that actually interested me! Throw in some really amazing ladies and I'm the most eager book club goer in history.
So flash forward to today. I'm now a reader, blogger, reviewer, author pimp, and all around book pusher. I'm thrilled that any of you care about what I have to say on the subject. What I have to say is this: Read. Share what you read by leaving reviews on amazon, goodreads, b&n, and anywhere else you can. Supporting the authors that make these amazing stories for us to read is really important. You don't have to be like me and devote hours every day to your support of authors, but leave a quick review. It helps. And keep reading!

Hotter Than Hot Cover Reveal

Hotter Than Hot by Milly Silver

Maggie Lee is Space Cadet 69. She begged for a different number. But no can do. She's stuck with a 69 on her forehead, until she's vaporised. That pretty much sums up Maggie's life.
Stuck in a boring job counting tins of meatballs.
Stuck on the dullest space station in the universe, Lanzarote.
And stuck with no hope of achieving her dream of flying scout ships.
Enter hot guy Hunter in his blinged-up spaceship. Things start to get unstuck for Maggie real fast.

Maggie needs to outwit evil Lord Zagon who wants to kill her for her cherished precognition helmet, find a rare space rock to save her family from suspended animation and flee from giddy space pirates wanting to pimp out her friends to the nearest aliens. Hunter being a sexy space god isn't exactly helping Maggie's concentration levels either.
Can Maggie pull it off? If she doesn't, her family will be frozen forever and Lord Zagon will rule the universe. Then she'll definitely never get to fly scout ships.
*HOTTER THAN HOT is a NA romantic comedy. It's a light, fast read that will keep you laughing all the way through. The perfect beach read!
