The Paranormals are riding high and Zak should be ecstatic. Instead, he’s exhausted. Having to supply the demon Abaddon with a quota of souls, as well as rehearse, record, and tour means his workload is just too heavy.

 

Shop Assistant Erica is feeling down. Running The Paranormals Fan Club in her spare time, their fans believe she’s in constant touch with her idols, while the truth is she’s not seen them since the final of Britain’s Best New Band and she weirdly can’t remember much of that.

 

When Erica demands a face-to-face interview with Zak, he surprisingly invites her to spend a week accompanying the band as they play London. The band are annoyed at not being consulted, apart from guitarist Noah, who knows that Zak’s deal with the demon can be undone if Zak finds his true love, and what if Erica just happens to be the one?

 

All hell (well, the seventh dimension), is about to break loose.

Synopsis

What to do when your husband runs off and leaves you singleโ€”when being single is not your thing?


Lizzie has decided that single life does not suit her.

From castles in Scotland to barns in Kent, via apartments in London, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery as a single woman with all the humorous pitfalls along the way.

Naked artists, extreme earth lovers, taxidermy, and blow up dolls, are just some of the encounters Lizzie has to endure in her effort to get her life back on track.

With the dashing Scot, Ronan, by her side, will she ever be able to do that?

Or will his mountain of baggage just pile alongside hers creating an impenetrable wall between them?

A humorous journey of self-discovery and single life as a fifty-year-old.


Limp Dicks & Saggy Tits Excerpt

Copyright 2019 TJ Podger

Fifty and single was not a great place to be. Especially when I had no desire to be either. But, against my wishes, I found myself to be exactly at that point.

Why should meeting a man be so difficult at my age? Why couldnโ€™t I walk into a bar and not look like a cougar on the prowl or a nearly-OAP being patronised by the youth? Why couldnโ€™t I still have a healthy sex life even if I didnโ€™t have a husband anymore?

Too many whys, and after my third glass of wine, I guessed I could continue to add more butโ€ฆwhat the fuck good would it do?

โ€œLizzie, are you listening to me?โ€ I heard.

โ€œNo,โ€ I replied, draining the glass I held in my hand. โ€œIโ€™m thinking about what the nurse said to me.โ€

โ€œWhat did the nurse say?โ€

โ€œThat I might need to consider lubricant.โ€ I was aware of the slur to my voice. โ€œShe said I have vaginal atrophy. Fucking vaginalโ€“โ€

โ€œWhatโ€™s vaginal atrophy?โ€ he asked, interrupting.

โ€œA shrinking fanny, Joe!โ€ I replied.

โ€œLetโ€™s just call it a return to virgin fanny, it sounds better. So, did you hear what I said earlier?โ€

I was lying on the sofa. There was a romcom playing on the TV that I had absolutely no interest inโ€”had probably seen twenty years agoโ€”while my best friend, Joe, was sitting in the chair opposite me.

โ€œNo, what did you say?โ€ I asked, shuffling up a little so I at least looked interested in what he had to offer.

โ€œI said, I think we need a little weekend break away,โ€ Joe repeated.

โ€œI like the sound of that.โ€

โ€œI might have a look online tomorrow.โ€

Maybe he told me more, I had no idea. I awoke the following morning with a banging headache and a mouth tasting like a sewer.

โ€œWho filled their mouth with sewerโ€ฆstuff, to even come up with that phrase?โ€ I said aloud as I climbed from the sofa in need of water.

The kitchen was spotless, and I gave an imaginary thumbs up to Joe who had obviously cleared away our takeout containers. I smiled at the small box of empty wine bottles heโ€™d left on the counter, ready for recycling.

I scratched my head, feeling the tangles in my hair from sleeping on a sofa at a strange angle, and probably tossing and turning at that. On sniffing my armpit, I tried to decide on the urgency of a shower, or whether I could fit a cup of coffee in first. However, since I was alone, it didnโ€™t matter if there was a slight sweaty smell; coffee was needed.

The only time I drank instant coffee, from the jar, was when I was hung-over. I hated the stuff normally, but I couldnโ€™t be arsed to make fresh. I unscrewed a jar, banged it on the counter to loosen up the granules, and plunged in a teaspoon. Once deposited in a mug, boiled water added, and a splash of milk, I piled in some sugar and sipped. On hung-over mornings it was nectar for the brain.

Flashes of conversations filled my mind as I walked through to the bathroom. I was sure Joe mentioned a weekend break at some point the previous evening. I hoped it involved a spa, and wine, and maybe a nice restaurant, and a bar, and maybe more wine.

My singleton life sinceโ€ฆhim, revolved around too much alcohol, and not enough self-love, of any kind so yes, a nice spa would be perfect. It was time to kick myself and my alcohol-fuelled body back into shape. I was that buoyed in that precise moment, I showered quickly, drank down the rest of the coffee, and then had the bright idea to hit the gym, a place I hadnโ€™t ventured to in months.

I pulled on some leggings and accompanied them with a long t-shirt to hide the rolls of fat. I found my trainers and a gym bag with a towel and toiletries and before I could change my mindโ€”or sanity returnedโ€”I left the flat and walked up the road.

Iโ€™d made it halfway before my body started to sway and a small wave of nausea washed over me. I could have very easily turned around and headed back home. I was determined, however. I was going to the gym; I was sick of myself, and I was sure everyone else was too.

Many a time Iโ€™d made the decision that I didnโ€™t want/need a man in my life and every time, I knew I was kidding myself. I also knew it was the fallout from being cheated on and left to pick up the pieces while he swanned around town with a bloody drag queen.

Maybe if sheโ€™d been tall, blonde, slim and well spoken with a high profile job in the city I might not have been so bitter. If she had been the typical just-out-ofโ€“her-teens bimbo with no aspirations other than wanting a sugar daddy, I could have understood, sort of. But a drag queen? Now, I have nothing against drag queens, per se. I have everything against my husband running off with one.

I had no idea why the situation seemed worse, I mean, it was pretty laughable. He was short, balding, with a paunch forming, and heading for his sixties. โ€˜Sheโ€™ was over six feet in height and that was without the five-inch heels, muscles, tattoos down one arm from days in the navy, of disputable age, and with one false eye! I mean, for fuckโ€™s sake, why?

Book Review- Blossom In Winter By Melanie Martins.

Book Review – Blossom In Winter by Melanie Martins.

I thought this was a fantastic dark, romance readโ€ฆ in the beginning. However, I felt it inconsistent and slow. The characters needed more development and so did the story, in my opinion. Itโ€™s classed as a romantic thriller so I was waiting for something to happen with maybe her best friend Emma, seeing as she liked to torture a boy or 2, but no. Or maybe thereโ€™d be some stand-off between her and Alex (the love interest) for Petraโ€™s affections as itโ€™s later revealed Emma seems to have feelings for her, but no. Instead, apart from at the beginning, Emmaโ€™s scenes are fleeting. I donโ€™t even understand why Petra was best friends with her as she was a horrible person!

I couldnโ€™t quite believe the relationship between Petra and Alex Van Dieren or that her dad came around to the idea of Petra dating and ultimately getting engaged to his best friend. The relationship just progressed too quickly!

It surprised me to find out quite late on in the book that Alex was a dom. Although it was hinted at that he had a dark sexual side and had a fetish/kink quite early on in the book, the author didnโ€™t go into any detail until he mentioned about the girls that he had dom/sub relationships with. And this was only mentioned in passing in his narrative, it wasnโ€™t a big revelation.

โ€œIf I recall properly, only my former subs used to beg me to f*ck their asses. Wow. I tremble at the thought that Petra might actually want to become one.โ€ Page 388

That is well over half way through the story. There IS a contract drawn up but this is in relation to their relationship and the media (heโ€™s a wall street businessman in his 40s, sheโ€™s just turned 18). Hmm I do wonder what a person living the sub/dom lifestyle would think to this bookโ€ฆ
He never actually discusses this dom/sub lifestyle with her so he just comes across as controlling. Especially with him giving her rules such as not leaving the table without his permission and having to change into a nightgown when she does so. But also when he forces her to have sex with no warning at all just so he can selfishly get his rocks off! She had absolutely no idea whatโ€™s going on and is so confused and upset by it. Later, out of nowhere, Petraโ€™s personality then changes and she goes on to be the dominatrix when she next sees him. I mean, I get her thought process, she wants to beat him at his own game and prove sheโ€™s not gonna be walked over BUT this isnโ€™t explained. Itโ€™s just as though sheโ€™s turned into someone else. Sheโ€™s also portrayed as naive yet mature but they donโ€™t really go hand in hand and it was shocking to see her go from virgin to wanting to explore everything sexual within weeks of losing her virginity! Now, I donโ€™t know about you, but I wouldnโ€™t wanna try anal so soon after having sex for the first time!

In the end I just really struggled with this book. The dialogue was cringey at timeโ€™s, especially during the sex scenes when Petra would say, โ€œAhhh…โ€ instead of the author simply stating that she groaned/moaned. I was expecting more thriller alongside the romance but it left a lot to be desired and a lot of unanswered scenes and questions! Scenes which could have lead the book into a thriller but didnโ€™t really take off. The sub genre is more taboo (age-gap plus heโ€™s her godfather who brought her up like she was his own) than anything else.

this book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review

Thereโ€™s something about the scent of blood from the undead.


In the heat of battle, hybrid Ava Lรณpez discovers she has new and fascinating powers, but she does not know how to control them. Though her former enemies have offered her refuge and helped her acclimate to the vampire lifestyle, even they donโ€™t understand her enhanced magic.


With mounting threats from Avaโ€™s former coven and reckless rogue vampires, Ava and her new friends have no choice but to request the wisdom of Holland Taylor to help her understand her powers. Holland is one of the most powerful witches Ava has ever met, and he is also Jeremiahโ€™s ex, which introduces another wrinkle.


Tension between the vampires and Avaโ€™s former coven is building, and when the witches offer a deal Ava would be remiss to reject, she is forced to choose between the life she once considered safe and the life she never wanted.

Book Review – If We Were Young by Anna Bloom.

๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค Book Review – If We Were Young by @annabloombooks. ๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค

If We Were Young is wonderfully written with fantastic characters and great character development. I found Ronnie to be so relatable and wondered how Iโ€™d be once my own daughter becomes a teenager. I love the way her daughter was portrayed, as well as the moody teen mannerisms. What really resonated with me personally was the fact that Ronnie has social anxiety. She has it so bad that she canโ€™t speak and/or throws up. I love that although this is primarily a romance, Anna touched upon the affects of anxiety and how it can affect us so that those who donโ€™t have it can understand it better and those who do can relate right along with Ronnie and know exactly what sheโ€™s going through.

Ronnie and Matthewโ€™s friendship had come to an end one sad night back in uni, then 15 years later they were reunited through a business opportunity. I loved seeing it all unfold before my eyes and found myself frustrated and on edge wondering if Ronnie and Matthew would be able to see past their anger and become friends again, wishing and hoping theyโ€™d become much more than that. You learn throughout the story that so many obstacles had been thrown in the way over the years, unbeknownst to them at the time, that had stopped them coming together and it made me feel so sad because their lives could have been sooo different!

This book captured my heart and didnโ€™t want to let go! I have so many feels! Iโ€™m incredibly excited that thereโ€™s going to be a sequel! I need to know whatโ€™s next for Ronnie and Matthew! Iโ€™m also still mad at Angela and her selfishness!! Grrr!

This is a second change romance, friends to lovers story (will they/wonโ€™t they?) that is so easy to get into you wonโ€™t want to put it down!

Book Review – Dark Secret by Danielle Rose.

I fell in love with this book straight away! Witches AND vampires?! Whatโ€™s not to love if youโ€™re a fan of YA paranormal reads? I love how in-depth Danielle went with the witches and their magic lore and I love the spin that she took with the main character, Ava, after a fight with a vampire didnโ€™t quite go to plan. Ava is tasked with protecting her coven and the village of Darkhaven from the vampires but her coven doesnโ€™t trust her ability to sense the darkness that is coming which she tries to prove otherwise. Throughout the book she goes from strength to strength, but not without her flaws and weaknesses, whilst she struggles to adapt to a life she never wanted. There is a hint of romance running through this book which I really enjoyed and am excited to see where itโ€™ll lead in the second book. Danielleโ€™s writing is incredibly detailed and such a delight to read. I really enjoyed that it was written in first person too. This would be the perfect book if youโ€™re just starting out on your YA paranormal journey.

Synopsis

There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.

Seventeen-year-old spirit witch Ava Lรณpez is the self-appointed guardian of the witches and humans of Darkhaven, an idyllic village nestled between the forest and the sea. Her watch: vicious and bloodthirsty vampires.

Ava is a novice in the eyes of her coven. If she expects to protect them and the secrecy of their powers, she must gain better control of her own. When a full moon ritual goes awry, control may be lost forever, and Ava is exiled from her coven. Forced to seek refuge among the beings she had always sworn herself to hunt, she vows revenge on those who have upended her life.

But the more time Ava spends away from her coven, the more she discovers a startling truth: the witches havenโ€™t been honest with her. Avaโ€™s quest to strip the truth from everything sheโ€™s ever known begins with the toughest realization of allโ€”coming to terms with who she has become.

Book Review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May,

Book review – The Cake Fairies by Isabella May.

Blurb:

1960’s Somerset is no fun for cousins Polly and Annabelle Williams. Mourning their non-existent love lives, and the mundanity of village life, their only pleasure is baking – until a chance encounter has them magically transported to the bright lights of London… in 2019!

Promised a chance of love, first they must teach the people of the future about the simpler pleasures of life by becoming Cake Fairies. Over the course of a year they set off on a delectable tour of the UK, dropping off cakes in the most unexpected of places and replacing the lure of technology with much sweeter temptations.

But will their philanthropical endeavours lead them to everlasting love? Or will they discover you can’t have your cake and eat it?

My review:

What a book this is! It is so much more than a book about two cake making cousins running their own cake shop in the sixties, who may or may not find love! Sooo much more! For one, thereโ€™s time travel!! Which I thought was an awesome part of the book. What really spoke to me, though, was that it tackles the issues of how modern tech, like our phones, affects us today and how most of us just seem glued to our phones instead of engaging with the people and taking in the environment around us. In come Polly and Annabelle with their cake making skills who are sent forward in time to hopefully make people see how important it is to take a step back from their phones and really pay attention to those around them. It really hit home for me because I often think we should spend less time on phones, tablets, PCs etc. and more time with the ones we love! Itโ€™s a fabulous read and one Iโ€™ll cherish for a long time!

She had no idea what I was willing to do, who I used to be, and what I was capable of when it came to protecting those I loved. She had no idea the lengths Iโ€™d go to to give her a happy ever after. My girl had no idea at all.
Authors’ Bios

Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-oldโ€™s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you donโ€™t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.

L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.
Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there’s more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.

The Only Exception could be read as a standalone, but in order to fully understand their history and backstory, we strongly, strongly advise reading The Trouble with Izzy and/or A Fight for Ethan first, both of which are available for #FREE in Kindle Unlimited.
