RELEASE, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: DEVIL by Ker Dukey

 

DEVIL.

A DARK SUSPENSE NOVEL

BY KER DUKEY

NOW LIVE!!

Synopsis:

Evi Devil.

Yes, that’s really my name.

The irony is not lost on me.

I was created from two evil souls and have the name to prove it.

Devil worshipers, perverts, murderer. Is all terms used to describe the parents I refuse to remember. My mind won’t allow me to.

And why would I want to?

One born of dirty blood running through her veins can never truly be clean from its murky hue.

No matter what they try to tell me happened in my past, my mind denies me access, therefore how can I know it’s true?

How can I believe that’s what I’m born from?

Glimpses of my past haunt me, the screams of terror echo in the silent darkness of my memories, trying to remind me that my Mother went from room to room butchering our family.

I’ve learned from scars that I suffered abuse and that my Father and siblings weren’t my Mother’s only victims.

Hearing what they tell me.

Reading the words printed in the papers. None of it can prepare me for what’s to come.

My biggest lesson is learning that some memories we suppress for a reason.

~*~ TSC REVIEW~*~

6 STARS

I’m a HUGE fan of Ker’s. 

She has such an incredible way of weaving a story, that no matter how dark the subject, you find yourself mesmerized. Evi story will not only suck you in, it will grab onto your soul and never let go. 

She lives through things no one should ever have to. And what makes her endearing is how incredibly strong she is. Even though she doesn’t think so. The journey that Ker takes us on with Evi is definitely twisted and dark. But there are so many rays of light that break through along the way.

Max is the only childhood friend Evi had, and once they find each other again, he’s determined not to lose her for a second time.  We catch glimpses of their childhood through her memory recall. 

This book is captivating and mind blowing. It’s honestly one of those books you need to read for yourself to truly appreciate how brilliant Ker truly is. And if you have any issues with abuse, please heed her warning at the beginning of the book.

Meet Ker Dukey

International Bestselling Author Ker Dukey

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

RELEASE, REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: #MOMFAIL

Cover Design: MadHat Books

Release Date: July 25, 2017

 

Synopsis

Everyone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You’re constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, “is this chocolate or … oh, crap …” and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons.

Let’s be honest … even when we’re doing this “mom” thing right, we’re somehow doing it completely wrong.

Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS.

*Stories inspired by real life (unless you’re a cop, then it’s all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we’re all just trying to survive by any means necessary.

Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper.

~*~ TSC REVIEW~*~

4.5 Hilarious Stars

Let’s face it. Before we have kids, we judge others and think to ourselves, “I would NEVER let my kids do that” or “My kids would be so much better behaved than that”.  It’s easy to do that. Until you have your own. Then all those ideals and plans go right out the window. 

There was not one story in this anthology that I didn’t find myself thinking back to my own early journey on this road called motherhood and laughing at how naive I was. I definitely laughed, and cringed at some of the situations I found myself in with my own family that were eerily similar to some of the ones in here.  

My favorite had to be Afternoon Delight by B.L. Berry.  We all know when you have small children, sex becomes one more thing on your “to-do list”. You try and schedule it,  like a doctors appointment, and all the spontaneity that you once took for granted goes right down the drain. This particular story had me laughing so hard, because I’ve been in this situation myself (minus the triplets).  But ALL the stories are relate-able in one way or another. 

If you’re looking for a light-hearted, make you laugh out loud read, or just need confirmation that  you are not alone on this journey, read #MOMFAIL!

Title: Writing Mr. Right

Author: T.K. Leigh
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: June 26, 2017

Blurb

 

My name is

Molly Brinks, but most people know me as Vivienne Foxx, bestselling author of

chance meetings, stolen glances, and the much-needed happily ever after. My

addictions include coffee, home improvement television, and the occasional pint

of ice cream. The love of my life is an eighty-pound labrador retriever named

Pee Wee. At the age of twenty-nine-plus-one, I am at the top of my

game…professionally. My personal life is a completely different story, one best

left untold. Success has its sacrifices and I’ve been more than happy to put my

search for Prince Charming on the back burner while I create fictitious tales

of the naïve virgin, the broken girl with a torrid past, and the strong-willed

student finding their own Mr. Right… Until one hell of a case of writer’s block

and a tight deadline set by my publisher forces me outside my cozy downtown

Boston apartment in search of inspiration.

Armed with

an account on every dating website out there, I devise a plan. Meet some nice,

professional men. Go on a few dates. Hope one of them has the spark I need to

finish my book. Then walk away.

But plans

are meant to be broken.

My name is

Molly Brinks, and this is my story about Writing Mr. Right.

 ~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

4.5 Stars
This was not the typical book that I’m used to from T.K. Leigh. I’m so used to her darker, more suspenseful reads, and this lighthearted, funny story was a very nice change. There is so much I want to say, but I can’t without giving it away.

This book is a great combination of heartwarming and hilarity, with moments of tugging at the heart strings dispersed throughout. Molly is funny. She’s smart, feisty and very set on her belief that “real love is not real life.” There were times she’d be so stubborn, I’d get frustrated with her, but then she’d do something to make me laugh and all would be forgotten.

The secondary characters in this book are fantastic, and I can’t wait for Drew (her brother) to get his book.

If you’re a fan of T.K. Leigh’s writing, then pick this book up. You’ll enjoy seeing her lighter side.

~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

5 STARS

If you’re a fan of the forbidden romance, this book is for you. It’s a modern twist on a timeless classic that will leave you wanting SO much more!

Roman and Julianna are natural born enemies, only they don’t know that. She’s the chief of police’s detective daughter, determined to make a name for herself without her fathers help. He’s the reluctant heir to the mob empire who tried to escape his fathers grasp.

I love the way these two meet. It’s so unconventional, and absolutely fitting for them. The chemistry is explosive, and right away, Roman exerts his gorgeous alpha self. He’s arrogant, but not overbearing. 24 hours. One night. That’s all he can give her. And in that time, they discover all of the commonalities that they share. Loss, heartache, not living up to expectations. And wishing they had more than one night to spend together.

Julianna is a spitfire. She’s a little insecure when it comes to men, but with her job, she’s determined and fierce. I love the inner dialogue when she comes face to face with Roman after their one night.

Sienna’s writing is wonderful. This story flows, and before you know it, you’re at the end. It’s filled with suspense and twists, all wrapped up in a sexy package. The ending alone will leave you gasping. I’m very excited for the next book. I need to know how they handle the situation they’ve both been unwillingly thrust into, and whether or not their hearts survive.

 

Sienna Blake is a pen name for a USA Today Bestselling Author. She loves all things that make her heart race — rollercoasters, thrillers and rowdy unrestrained sex. She likes to explore the darker side of human nature in her writing.

If she told you who she really was, she’d have to kill you. Because of her passion for crime and forensics, she’d totally get away with your murder.

 ~*~TSC REVIEW~*~

5 STARS

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times. I LOVE Jacobs writing! Like, I might very soon be elevated to stalker status, because I’m always anxiously awaiting his next release.

I was looking forward to Punched after reading Penalty, and it was so good, I read it in just a few hours. Could not, would not, put it down!

Noah Nolan is a fighter; in every sense of the word. He comes from a background he’s ashamed of, in a neighborhood that leaves a lot to be desired. He has less than stellar parenting, which is what drives his fight to be better than all of that.

Reagan Collins is the sweet daughter of world-famous retired fighter Jimmy Collins, who now trains Noah. She’s recently returned to Boston from school in California, ready to run her fathers gym and get started with her life. Working in the gym where the man who broke her heart four years ago won’t be easy, but she keeps her chin up and her resolve strong.

I absolutely adored this second chance romance. It’s a beautifully written tale of young love, regrets and moving forward. Underneath Noah’s perfectly sculpted physique and tough MMA facade, is a genuinely nice guy, who has never stopped loving Reagan. And Reagan is just as wonderful. She is probably one of my favorite female characters, ever. She’s smart and strong, but incredibly sweet and forgiving.

This book is another feather in Jacobs cap, and may just be my favorite of his so far. It’s the perfect combination of sweetness and hotness. If you like sports romance, and second chance romance, this is the best of both worlds that you do not want to miss.
