Blog Tour & Giveaway: A Necessary Sin [The Sin Trilogy 01] by Georgia Cates!

Publication date: 29th December 2014
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Bleu MacAllister is consumed. A horrific childhood incident has caused every decision in her life to revolve around bringing a monster to justice. With years spent studying The Fellowship, an organized crime brotherhood of liars, thieves, and killers, Bleu will rely on her skills as a special agent to cut Thane Breckenridge off at the knees. But walking hand in hand with retribution means risking collateral damage, in the form of Breckenridge’s son Sinclair—until Sin becomes so much more than Bleu bargained for. She’s always known this undertaking would place her life in danger—she never imagined her heart would be as well.

I'll start off by saying that I signed up for this Blog Tour on a whim lol! I've heard a lot about this author's other books, but I've not read any of them, so I was a little unsure about signing up to review this book! I also didn't know what to expect from this book lol! The synopsis is very intriguing, but it leaves it open so you're not 100% sure what could happen! I'm so happy I signed up to review this book though! It completely blew me away and exceeded my high expectations! I loved everything about it! The plot was amazing! It started with a bang and then it ended with a bang! I was intrigued by it right from the first page and I also read this book in a few sittings because I had a hard time putting it down! There was also suspense in the plot, action and plenty of romance! There were also plenty of seriously hot scenes too! And they were seriously hot lol! I loved that the setting was in Scotland too, because that's where I live! I loved the way the accent was written too lol! Overall, I loved the plot and I thought that it was developed brilliantly! The characters were seriously awesome! Bleu was the main female character and she had been through a horrible ordeal in her childhood! In fact, it was more than horrible! There isn't a strong enough word to describe what she went through! This book was about Bleu getting revenge on the person who killed her mother and almost killed her, and Bleu totally went about it the right way! She was quite a sneaky character, but as the book developed, so did her feelings for her love interest and the guy she was planning to kill's son! I just loved Bleu! She was always composed and she was really easy for me to connect with! Sin was the main male character and love interest of Bleu! He was one seriously hot guy, and I loved how protective he was of Bleu! His feelings for Bleu grew stronger and stronger as this book progressed and he did things in this book that proved just how much he loved her! I kind of felt for Sin in this book as well though as he was the pawn in Bleu's revenge plan! Sin actually kinda took the news better than I was expecting when it came out though lol! He really impressed me in this book and I thought that he was a brilliant character! I loved that this book was written from both Bleu and Sin's point of views! I wasn't sure if it was going to be, so it was a nice surprise that it was! It added a lot to the suspense side of the plot and it was amazing to see the main characters feelings develop for each other through both of their eyes! I can't wait to read the next book in this trilogy! The ending of this book was left at the perfect place and I'll definitely be reading the next book as soon as it releases! The cover for this book is seriously hot! I actually love it and the model on the front looks badass, just like Bleu's character is! It suits the cover for the second book perfectly too! Big thank you to Georgia for an ARC of A Necessary Sin and to Inkslinger PR for having me on the Blog Tour!

Spending the summer in the country, away from Joel, is the last thing Alexandria wants to do. But lucky for her, the sexy farmhand, Landon, who helps out around her grandparents’ place, is a very nice distraction.

 11. The Outsider Chronicles by Nicole Williams!

Hard Knox [The Outsider Chronicles 01]!
Knox Jagger. The name inspires resentment in every male at Sinclair University, want in every female, and contempt in Charlie Chase.

Charlie can be summed up in three words: independent, independent, and independent. To Charlie, Knox epitomizes everything that’s wrong with college males: prolific one-night stands, drunken senseless fights, and a body that hints at prioritizing gym time over study time.

As an up-and-coming writer for Sinclair University’s newspaper, Charlie’s tasked with getting to the bottom of who’s been dropping little white pills into girls’ drinks at parties. In an ocean of All-American boys sporting polo shirts and innocent smiles, Knox is the obvious suspect. As evidence piles up against the bad boy of Sinclair, Charlie becomes more and more certain it isn’t Knox. But when her drink is dosed at a party and she wakes up on Knox’s couch the next morning, Charlie’s left with more questions than answers when it comes to Knox Jagger.

How can Charlie ever hope to uncover the truth behind a guy so closed off he’s become . . .

Hard Knox.

Damaged Goods [The Outsider Chronicles 02]!
When Liv Bennett said good-bye to her sinkhole of a hometown, she planned to leave that chapter of her life behind forever. But forever turned out to only be three years.

After her addict of a mother up and disappears, Liv returns to what she considers her own personal hell smack in the middle of nowhere Nevada to take care of her two younger sisters, and she promptly reinstitutes the golden rule that got her through her first nineteen years of life without getting knocked up, roughed up, or messed up: don’t date the local boys and, god forbid, don’t fall in love with one of them.

It isn’t long before that golden rule is put to the test.

Will Goods grew up in the next trailer over, but the wild, careless boy who used to tear up the town with his three brothers has morphed into someone else so completely, he’s almost unrecognizable. The quiet, contemplative man who works on cars every night and takes care of his mentally ill mother every day is nothing like the local boys Liv grew up avoiding.

But when Liv considers suspending her golden rule just this once, she finds out something about Will that will change everything.

Will Goods isn’t who he used to be—he’s not even the man Liv thinks she’s gotten to know over the summer. He’s become someone else entirely.

He’s become . . .

Some stories are a fairytale...but this isn't one.

Caelan Gregory’s life fell apart the night he went home and opened the door to find his whole family murdered. Since then, his life has held no meaning. He’s angry. He’s bitter.

When Sutton Hale moves into the apartment across the hall from Caelan she’s not prepared for her reaction to him. Something in his broken blue eyes calls to her—after all she’s always had an irrational need to fix everything.

But Caelan doesn’t do relationships or feelings. He does drugs and alcohol. However, he can’t ignore his desire to get to know the raven-haired woman across the hall.

Two broken souls trying to mend one another.

But not everything can be fixed.

In the end, Caelan and Sutton will have to learn that there is beauty in the ashes.

9. Burying Water [Burying Water 01] by K.A. Tucker!

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

5. Wicked [A Wicked Saga 01] by Jennifer L. Armentrout!
Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

2. The Hades Hangmen series by Tillie Cole!

It Ain't Me, Babe [Hades Hangmen 01]!

Sinning never felt so good…

A fortuitous encounter.

A meeting that should never have happened.

Many years ago, two children from completely different worlds forged a connection, a fateful connection, an unbreakable bond that would change their lives forever…

Salome knows only one way to live—under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence—the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free.

Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again.

River ‘Styx’ Nash knows one thing for certain in life—he was born and bred to wear a cut. Raised in a turbulent world of sex, Harleys, and drugs, Styx, unexpectedly has the heavy burden of the Hades Hangmen gavel thrust upon him, and all at the ripe old age of twenty-six—much to his rivals’ delight.

Haunted by a crushing speech impediment, Styx quickly learns to deal with his haters. Powerful fists, an iron jaw and the skillful use of his treasured German blade has earned him a fearsome reputation as a man not to be messed with in the shadowy world of outlaw MC’s. A reputation that successfully keeps most people far, far away.

Styx has one rule in life—never let anyone get too close. It’s a plan that he has stuck to for years, that is, until a young woman is found injured on his lot… a woman who looks uncannily familiar, a woman who clearly does not belong in his world, yet a woman he feels reluctant to let go…

Heart Recaptured [Hades Hangmen 02]!
Even salvation can be delivered through the love of the damned…

Beauty can be a curse.

Faith can be a cage.

Only love can set you free.

A few long weeks after being reluctantly ripped from the comforting embrace of her sacred prophet’s religious commune—the only life she has ever known—a terrified Delilah is thrust into a world enveloped by evil and swimming in sin.

Steadfastly devout in her faith, and retaining the deep belief that her soul is innately tarnished as a branded ‘Cursed woman of Eve’, Delilah is determined to find her way home to her people in The Order and away from the corrupt and damned outlaw motorcycle club—The Hades Hangmen—who hold her at their secluded compound for her protection—a 'protection' she strongly resents.

Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lord’s revealed prophet, can her Satan-spawned soul be truly saved. Conditioned her entire life to believe she is a witch... a life-long temptress… the devil’s whore... Delilah increasingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle club—a deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful man—is charged with her care, Delilah begins to see that this dangerous and moralless sinner from the 'outside' may offer her something she did not know could truly exist: unconditional love.

Kyler ‘Ky’ Willis loves his life: a daily abundance of brotherhood, liquor, the freedom of the open-road and—best of all—his pick of hot women. Raised a biker brat and now VP of the most notorious MC in the States, Ky has no shortage of club sluts warming his bed; a situation he takes full advantage of… until a certain blonde enters his life… a gorgeous pilgrim-blonde he can’t get out of his head… a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult… and a pilgrim-blonde he’s been ordered to keep the hell away from and his whorish hands off.

When yet another in a lengthy line of drunken blunders forces Ky to reluctantly take charge of the pilgrim-blonde’s care, he realizes that there could be more to this woman than just supermodel looks and a stacked set of tits. He begins to see that she could be the woman who could do the impossible—tame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.

But the unyielding bonds of Lilah’s past are strong, her ‘people’ determined and, with a new Prophet in charge and hell bent on revenge, they are mightily reluctant to let her go...

1. The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout!
White Hot Kiss [The Dark Elements 01]!
One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

I was completely enthralled by the first page and I had a hard time putting it down! I also read it in a few sittings! The plot was amazing! I loved everything about it! As I said, it was full of romance, action and suspense, which I loved! It also had plenty of seriously hot scenes in it too! I think the temperature in my room got hotter because of them lol! Overall, I absolutely loved the plot of this book and I had a seriously hard time outing it down as soon as I started reading! The characters were amazing! Gabriella 'Gabby' was the main female character and she was kick-ass in this book! I just loved her, and I loved that this book was about her finding love! She was a character that I loved in the books she was a secondary character in, and I couldn't wait to read her story! Gabby definitely impressed me in this book! She was so fierce and she didn't panic about the situation she was in! She took control of it and she did some dangerous things to protect the people she cared about! I just loved her and she blew me away in this book! I really hope she's in the next book so that I can see how her relationship with her love interest has developed! Paxton was the main male character and he was seriously hot! I just loved Paxton! He was everything I love in a guy, and I also loved that he regretted what he did in the past and that he was trying to make up for it! He was also super protective of Gabby, and I could see how far he would go to protect her and make sure she was safe! He even did something in this book that showed how far he would go to protect Gabby and make sure that she was safe! Paxton was just an amazing guy, and he was seriously hot with Gabby! They may just be my favourite couple from this series, which is hard because all the couples in this series are amazing lol! I loved that this book was written from both Paxton and Gabby's point of views! It really helped me connect more with the two of them and I loved getting to see their relationship develop through both of their eyes! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! The character that it's going to be about is the most intriguing character in this series in my opinion, so I can't wait to read his story! The cover for this book is absolutely perfect for it! I'm so happy there's a couple on it because the other covers in the series have hot guys on them lol! The models are also the perfect Gabby and Paxton! Big thank you to L.P. Dover for an ARC of Paxton's Promise and to Inkslinger PR for having me on the Blog Tour!

 Or are we doomed to accept a life of loneliness?

 My current bed friend is someone who’s struggling to find his own acceptance. His big crime? He’s following his dreams. His father can’t accept the fact he no longer wants to follow in his footsteps. Should he be shut out because he quit the family business? I don’t think so. But if he should, I’ve got bigger problems.
My crime? 
I cheated on my husband and then killed the man I cheated with. Would you still accept me?

Author bio:
B.L. Mooney started writing when the voices and storylines in her head ran out of room. They were getting too cramped and neither B.L. nor the characters could take it anymore, so she did the only thing she could do—she made room. She always knew she wanted to write, but vowed to make time for it later. Now that she’s made time for writing, most everything else falls to the wayside. That seems to suit the characters that keep popping up in her head just fine.

B.L. lives in the Midwest, and her other talents include in-demand cookies, a very dry sense of humor, and stealth eavesdropping. Some mannerisms, attitudes, or twists come from random sentences picked up while passing by strangers. So speak up the next time you have something to gossip about. You never know, it may just end up on the pages of the next book you read.

She loves to hear from her readers and you can contact her via email at AuthorBLMooney@gmail.com

Synopsis: Being stranded in L.A. wasn’t the best start to Jared Jackson’s music career. In fact, it should have been the forewarning that things were not what he thought they’d be. Especially when he’s collected from the airport by the band manager’s sharp-tongued niece.
The draw for Jared is immediate. In his heart, he knows Skylar Murphy is the girl for him. Proving it to her, however, is a whole other story.

With his future in peril, Jared’s dream spirals in a tailspin as secrets and lies sweep him into a dangerous life.

Will Jared rise above the destruction or will his new circumstances be his undoing?

I loved the first book in this series, so I was really excited to read this book, even though I knew that it was going to be about different characters, one of whom appeared in the first book! I then got an email about a Blog Tour for this book, and I quickly signed up to review it! I was so excited to read it! This book was freaking amazing! It had me hooked from the first page and I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading it! I also read it super fast lol, and in only two sittings! I just loved it and it definitely exceeded my high expectations! The plot was amazing! I thought that it was going to be a straightforward rock band book, but then it started to completely change direction and the author added her own spin on the plot! I loved this because I didn't see it coming at all! It was quite unexpected, but it was so good! There were also plenty of twist and turns in the plot and some hot scenes too! There was also plenty of suspense too! I just loved everything about the plot and I loved that joined together well to create an amazing plot! The characters were just as amazing as the plot! Jared was the main character, and he was seriously hot! He had also been kept in the dark a lot in his life, and he found out a lot of secrets in this book! I did feel really sorry for him that a lot of things were hidden from him, but in a way I could understand why his parents kept secrets from him! They did it to protect him and to keep him safe! Jared was such an amazing guy though! He really impressed me! I loved how protective he was of his love interest too, and I could see that he had deep feelings for her! Skylar 'Murphy' was the love interest of Jared and she was so fierce at the beginning of this book! She didn't let anything stop her lol! She started to come out of her shell as this book progressed though, and she let Jared see Skylar and not Murphy! Murphy had also been through a traumatic experience and then she went through another traumatic experience in this book! I felt so sorry for her because I loved Murphy and I wanted her to be happy and safe! I just absolutely loved her! I loved that her feelings for Jared developed over time and that they didn't start something straightaway and that she thought about a relationship with him before she started one! It was definitely the right way to go! I was kinda expecting this book to be written from both Jared and Murphy's point of views, but it was actually only written from Jared's! I normally don't like books written from only a guy's point of view, but I enjoyed reading this book from only Jared's! I would have loved maybe a few chapters from Murphy's point of view though as she was quite a pivotal character! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I'm not sure if it's going to continue Jared and Murphy's story, but I think it is after the ending of this book! I'll definitely be reading it as soon as it releases! The cover for this book is stunning! It suits the book perfectly and I love how well it suits the cover for the first book too! Big thank you to Sonya for a copy of End Note and to Racine's PA Services for having me on the Blog Tour!
