That is exactly what happened."

For The Lover of Mythology Giveaway Hop with Grand Prizes (INT)


Here is my two cents into why I love mythology books, everything about the gods, especially Greek gods and their magic intrigues me. I fell in love with Greek gods especially when I started reading Sherrilyn Kenyon - The Dark Hunters Series. I completely loved this series because not only are the Gods ruthless, they are cunning, caring and Hot!!! literally and they have the ability to destroy or rebuild anything. My favorite God in this series was Acheron the son of the Destroyer. Acheron had the ability to smite whoever, pesky little human, other gods but he never abused his power. He was always caring and since he was the leader of the Dark Hunters he dedicated his existence to saving the human even when it would cost him the most.
This giveaway hop is running from June 1st to 8th .
 I will be giving away one E-book or book of your choice that  is centered around any and all types of Mythology(Greek, Roman, Egyptian and so on) to include the following Genre(s) YA, Fiction, Nonfiction, Adult, Romance and Erotic, up to an $12.00 value to one winner.

Unbreak Me Promo Blitz and Author Interview

Author: Lexi Ryan

Genre(s): New Adult/ Contemporary Romance

Goodreads: Add to TBR List

Purchase Links: Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Smashwords |

Book Blurb:“If you’re broken, I’ll fix you…”

I’m only twenty-one and already damaged goods. A slut. A failure. A disappointment to my picture-perfect family as long as I can remember. I called off my wedding to William Bailey, the only man who thought I was worth fixing. A year later, he’s marrying my sister. Unless I ask him not to…

“If you shatter, I’ll find you…”

But now there’s Asher Logan, a broken man who sees the fractures in my façade and doesn’t want to fix me at all. Asher wants me to stop hiding, to stop pretending. Asher wants to break down my walls. But that means letting him see my ugly secrets and forgiving him for his.

With my past weighing down on me, do I want the man who holds me together or the man who gives me permission to break?

Book Excerpt:  Asher looks damn fine standing there, his dark shades blocking his eyes from the setting sun, a tiny silver hoop glinting in each ear. He is all hard muscle and tan in his fitted black t-shirt and faded jeans. I always said there’s no man as hot as my car. Now I’m not so sure. 

My first thought is that we could be naked and in my bed in twenty minutes. My second is of the story Lizzy just told me, a story that makes Asher the worst kind of bad boy—capital B, capital N, Bad News.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Purchase Links: Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iBooks

Book Blurb: Angela Peterson was always the quiet, shy kid growing up in Harper Falls, crushing on the high school quarterback and honing her football strategy skills. Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she’s shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls asks her back to his hotel room. And then tries to steal her job.

Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position.

But the Harper Falls High Eagles are Angie’s team, and even the hometown hero won’t take that away from her, no matter how hot he is. As the two engage in a battle of wits and wills, this is one game neither is prepared to lose.

My Rant: Skin in the Game was erotic and sensual. Cade was mouth watering hot. This man knew how to push your buttons in a good way. Cade was unadulterated sexy muscle build athlete that knows how to turn a woman into mush by the things

Synopsis: My life has always been safe. I like it that way. I grew up in a fake society where plastic hearts rule. If our hearts are made of plastic, they can never be broken. My parents have expectations and I do everything I can to meet them, even if it means giving up on my own dreams. 

Now, all I want is to be free to make my own choices.

Dane Wright is everything I have been warned to stay away from. We met one night while I was with my perfect, parent-approved boyfriend and I haven’t stopped thinking about him. I don’t want to like him. I am doing everything I can to ignore his pull, but my heart seems to want what it cannot have, what it has never had.

Life is a series of choices and I have never been able to make my own. Until one day, when my heart decides to make a choice for me.

Synopsis:  After surviving a devastating car accident that took her father's life, Bryn Woods feels like she has nothing left in her hometown of Savannah, GA. Along with losing her father, her boyfriend, Tyler, unexpectedly leaves town the same time of the accident. Feeling alone, broke and confused, Bryn leaves Savannah for college in New York City to escape her heartbreak.

Four years later, Bryn returns to Savannah to live in her childhood home. Slowly, she begins to let the people of her past back into her life. She lets the protective walls she's built to protect herself crash down around her. As she begins to find love again with Tyler, secrets start to unravel themselves about his past. Tyler has secrets of his own. Secrets connected to the death of Bryn's father. Secrets Tyler didn't even know he kept.
My Rant:
This book tugged at my emotions. The main character Bryn looses a lot in the beginning and these tragic events leaves her feeling like she was abandon by the people she thought would be by her side the most. Honestly from the beginning I felt that she and Tyler had something special between them and why he up and left they way he did left such a void in Bryn. 
From the beginning I am crying my eyeballs out. Literally because the storyline was so emotional but I am not only teary eyed because it is such a sad story, I am mad so mad that I could not come to grips that at this point Tyler was completely on my sugar honey ice tea list.

“Wait a second. You’re saying you could tell things about me just by looking?”

“Yes, I can.” She crossed her arms and stared him down.

“Okay.” He faced her. “Give it your best shot.”

“Well, let’s see.” She considered his appearance. “You dressed in casual attire, so you wanted to appear relaxed and confident for our date, but you’re particular about your clothing. Silk, white, button down shirt, the first few buttons are open, and chino dress pants, so you aren’t uptight, but still somewhat conservative.”

Declan arched his brows. “Go on.”

                               Excerpt for Ultimatum: 

Purchase Link : Amazon 

The room was rectangular, dark and windowless, with deep crimson walls that matched the comforter on the king-sized bed; Gage had already laid several items on the end. A rack of cuffs, chains, whips, paddles, and God only knew what else hung on the far wall. An odd-looking bench sat in front of the display. Not certain what the X on the wall, the hooks in the floor and ceiling, or the plethora of items on the shelves were used for, I tore my gaze from the terrifying sight. A group of comfy chairs and a couch were arranged on a throw rug at the opposite end. Across from the bed a swanky bathroom, outfitted with a whirlpool tub and separate shower, could be seen through an archway. 
Gage fisted my hair and yanked me against him. “These are my rules. Remember them.” He trailed a hand down my throat, and his fingers settled on the buttons of my blouse. “Number one, don’t fight me. If you do you’ll be punished.” He slowly unfastened each one, taking the time to brush his fingers against my skin. “Two, unless I’ve given you permission to speak freely, always call me Master when we’re alone.” He slid his hand inside and palmed my breast. “And three, obey without hesitation. Do you understand these rules?”

“I-I understand.” I forced the words past my quivering lips. 

He let out a low chuckle. “I don’t think you do. I think it’s time for your first punishment.” He gripped my hair even tighter. “Before we go any further, you need to choose a safe word.”

“And if I say this word . . . you’ll stop?”

“Yes. And then I’ll turn you over to the authorities. Neither of us wants that.”

“Then what’s the point in choosing a safe word? You know I won’t use it.” 

“Because what happens here will be on my terms, but ultimately your choice. I won’t move forward without it, so choose wisely, something you won’t forget or accidentally say.” He withdrew his hand from my breast and put a few inches between us. “It’s the only word that will save you from your punishment. Screaming, crying, begging me to stop . . . none of those tactics will work.”

“You sick bastard.”

Giveaway Info: Also Zoey is hosting two huge Giveaways on her blog Click Here to enter.

 I was fortunate to get the wonderful and talented Ms. Zoey Derrick to take some time out her busy schedule to sit down with me for and interview before her release of Finding Loves Wings. Here's what Zoey had to say about herself her work and upcoming projects.

Crystal: Zoey, I have had the pleasure of knowing you and from my experience I know that you are blogger and avid reader but I know there is more to you that meets the eye so can you tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to be an author?

Zoey: Well, where to start would be a better question. I’m a mortgage loan underwriter by day, a single mom of a beautiful, energetic 8 year old in the evening, and a writer in the night. I love good books, great food, and I’m an avid music lover.

Being such an avid reader inspired me to write my own story, and the need to put my own fantasies to paper.

Crystal:  Is Zoey Derrick your only pin name?

Zoey: Yes, Zoey Derrick is the only name that I’ve written anything under, for now.

Crystal:     What Genre’s do you write in?

Zoey: Adult Contemporary/Erotic Romance, and I’m dipping my feet into some really cool Paranormal Romance.

Crystal: Are there any book or authors that have influenced your work?

Zoey: Is this blog long enough for this answer? I’ve always had a story to tell, but there are so many wonderful authors that have inspired not only Finding Love’s Wings, but also writing. It started about a year ago, when I picked up Fifty Shades of Grey. From there I discovered the likes of Marata Eros, Debra Anastasia, Shoshanna Evers, and Jennifer Probst and discovered the wonderful world of Indie Authors.

Crystal:  You are about to release Finding loves wings, how does that make you feel?

Zoey: Nervous, Excited, Scared $hit-less, but more than anything a very strong sense of accomplishment. Ask me again on release day, no doubt I’ll be cowering in the corner. :-)

Crystal : How did you come up with the title and can you tell is who designed the cover and when is the release date?

Cover Reveal: Dangerous to Know & Love by Jane Harvey-BerricK

Author: Jane Berrick

Publication Date 17 May 2013 

Purchase Links: only on eBook via Amazon and Smashwords

Genre: Mature new adult, with scenes of a sexual nature

Readership: Women aged 18+ (this novel will have a mature content warning as the sexual content does not fall within the New Adult classification guidelines)

Tag line: Silence is only skin deep.

Blurb: Set in Georgia, modern day.

Nineteen year old Daniel Colton is the guy all the girls want to date, and the man all the guys want to be. Moody, with an explosive temper, closed off and sullen, he’s also beautiful, tatted in delicious ways, with a pierced eyebrow and spiky black hair. It’s rumoured he has piercings in other places, too. Is he really mad, bad and dangerous to know?

Daniel lives with his older brother, Zef, and their home is party central. You want drugs, a good time, liquor, no questions asked? Colton’s is the place to go.

When Daniel and good girl Lisanne Maclaine have to work together on an assignment, Lisanne finds there’s a lot more to the college’s bad boy than his reputation. He’s intelligent and funny and good company. And then she discovers his secret, why he’s so closed off to everyone, and determined to keep people at arms’ length. But being his secret-keeper is harder than she ever dreamed.

Who is Daniel
This is the journey and development of Daniel, a first year college undergraduate, majoring in business.
Both of Daniel’s parents died two years ago in a car wreck. Daniel has an older brother Zef who deals in drugs and the once typical, blue-collar American family home is now a trashed drug den because of Zef’s never ending revolving door of party goers and ‘clients’. If you want ‘it’ everyone knows you go to Zef’s place to get ‘it’.

Daniel keeps to himself. Everything about his behaviour is unwelcoming. Although beautiful, Daniel oozes arrogance: he’s tall and slim with spiky black hair, has a broad back and strong muscular arms complete with swirls of red, gold and black tattoos drifting down to his elbows, and matching nipple rings. He wears Ray Bans, a leather jacket, and has a silver ring piercing his left eyebrow, smokes cigarettes, drinks booze and drives around on a 1969 Harley Davidson.

Daniel is the ‘hard’ boy; a player. Daniel is angry. Daniel has a secret. Daniel is deaf (this is a spoiler, please don't reveal – Daniel’s deafness is inferred from the very beginning but it is not fully revealed until the end of chapter two ). Music, once the centre of his life, is now lost to him.

Who is Lisanne
Lisanne is a first year college undergraduate, majoring in music (classical violin) with a minor in business. Lisanne also happens to be a great singer with a penchant for blues and indie rock, and becomes the lead of a local band.

Lisanne comes from a ‘nice’ family complete with a mom and dad who are math teachers, a younger brother, and a typical ‘white picket fence’, middle class, American home, complete with a large peach tree in the front yard.

Lisanne is the ‘soft’ girl; an innocent girl, a 'library' girl.
