Ashley Hampton works as a Licensed Psychologist in private practice during the day. When she leaves work, she puts on her writer and photographer hats and enjoys living in the worlds created in her mind. She lives near her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama with her cat, Gemma. Ashley wanted to find a creative way to meld her love for music and psychology with writing, and the Southern Rock Lyrics series was born. With other series planned, Ashley wants to write in the romance, erotica, and psychological thriller genres.
Ella Ferguson awakes alone in Italy, unsure of who she is, and a gorgeous man has claimed her as his own. He’s tall, dark, and sexy, with money and power, the kind of man who makes a girl want to be possessed. And he does possess her, whispering wicked wonderful promises to her, stealing her trust and her heart. Soon though, the past finds her, yanking her from a cocoon of passion and safety. Everything is not how it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it can set her free, if it doesn’t destroy her first.
Dang, dang, dang. I should’ve known better. I knew from reading The Secret Life of Amy Benson and The Inside Out Series that he books are filled with mystery making you want to uncover bits and pieces and needing the next book. I knew as I was reading I wouldn’t be prepared for this to end. I knew as the percentages grew higher that I wanted more secrets to be exposed.
Lisa Renee Jones layers so many mysteries together that one of the many thoughts that goes through your head, is damn she’s brilliant.
I think other words like torture went through my mind too. This is just a piece to a very complex puzzle. As you read this you will be entranced and then you will be needing more. Go in blind, but knowing that it’s not enough. This is the kind of book that makes a reader wild with all the who done it’s. I want to uncover everything. I want to reread Sara’s story and see what I can uncover.
Meet Kayden in Book one in the CARELESS WHISPERS series. This is a standalone spin-off of the INSIDE OUT series (soon to be a TV show) that follows Ella Ferguson, Sara McMillan’s best friend. #SayYesToKayden

I couldn’t sleep. I meant to go to the kitchen and then I ended up here because I wanted . . .” His reaction cuts like his anger. “Just never mind.” I try to move around him but his hands press to the wall beside me, caging me, and now I’m angry. “Are we doing this again? Don’t bully me. My stupid flashbacks are doing a fine job of that on their own. I said I’m sorry. Just let me go back to my room.”
“You wanted what?”
“I wanted you to do what you swore you could,” I blurt, having nothing to lose when everything is already gone.
“Only I don’t want you to fuck me until I can’t remember my name. I want you to fuck me until I stop thinking about that man and the gun. Because you were right. Memories are the enemies that never die. But I know you don’t want—”
His hand slides under my hair and he drags me to him, my hand flattening on the hard wall of his chest. “I do want. So fucking bad it’s killing me.”
My palm is directly over his heart, and I can feel it racing, the air around us crackling with barely contained passion. “I don’t need a hero to save my virtue tonight. I need you. So please. Fuck me and then fuck with my head so no one else can. Let me choose my own sins.”
He is stone, unmoving, his body steel, his expression unreadable, the sexual tension crackling between us. “You want sin, sweetheart,” he says. “I’ll give you sin.” His mouth closes down on mine, his tongue licking into my mouth, wicked with demand, and I can taste his hunger, his need. A deep, aching need I want to fill.

Title: Invincible Summer
Author: Seth King
We all remember our first love, that one affair that took custody of your heart and never really let it go. Readers around the world were touched by The Summer Remains, a heartbreaking and inspiring novel about one of these romances – but Cooper Nichols, the enigmatic young man at the center of the novel, was largely silent on the matter. Until now.
“I just can’t believe it’s over between you guys,” my best friend said as we walked down the pier. “You two were supposed to last forever.”
I stared out at the blue sea. “Oh, trust me, it’s not over. I am going to see that girl’s face in every crowd I look into, forever. And maybe a few forevers after that…”
And so begins the tale of young writer Cooper Nichols. Left in ruins after a tragic summer romance, Cooper is afraid the sun may have set on him for good – until his mother discovers a copy of Cooper’s journal he kept of that summer. As he reluctantly slips back into his own past in the pages of his notebook, Cooper starts to rethink everything he thought he knew about life, death, and all the love that can bloom in between – and what follows is a thrilling and breathtaking journey back to joy that will sink into you and stay there for the long haul.
Illuminating, romantic and soul-stirring, Invincible Summer is a testament to the miraculous power of love, in all its immortal glory and everlasting majesty. If you have ever found yourself drifting back to a long-lost romance during a quiet moment, prepare to be pulled under all over again.
“That one summer. Everyone’s got one, that fleeting season that rearranged you and imprinted itself onto your soul forever. You were mine. I swear I’ll never forget your hazel eyes. I swear I’ll never forget those few months when the winds roared. I’ll always think of you that way. And if you can, please come back to me. At the end of the day I’m just a boy who wants to get back to his first love, and I miss you. Just find a way back, please. I’ll be waiting.
Until then, I’ve got nothing…”

LOUISA’S 4.5 STAR REVIEW
How can someone follow up on one of my favorite reads of the year (The Summer Remains)? Well, Seth King has done it and in a way I would have NEVER thought possible.
I went into this book wanting more. Wanting to know and feel the impact that Summer had made on Cooper’s life, and all of those she touched. Summer was a force in everyone’s life. How can they go on without her? Summer and Cooper’s love was so unique, uncommon and remarkable. How could he move forward?
I did get that but oh so much more was given to me.
“…love is timeless and elegant and eternal – unkillable. Whoever said ‘happily ever after’ just didn’t understand what ‘ever after’ meant.”
You will read this book and openly think, “this has happened to me too, more times than I can count”, it’s eye opening, beautifully devastating but so engaging and arresting that you can’t look away.
Seth has proven himself to be a poetic writer and unfortunately I don’t always “get” the poeticism he is going after, so for many parts I was confused but ultimately knew where he was going with his thoughts. He explains his feelings, desires and environment is such a way that you can’t help but feel as though you are there. At times I couldn’t relate to his symbolism and metaphors. That may be my shortcoming but it was my only issue while reading.
Seth has spoken openly that this book made him cry while writing. I can see why now that I have read it. This book is SETH KING. This book, for me, was a part of his soul coming through his writing. He has shared another piece of his soul with his readers. This book is personal ~~ and once you read it you will totally understand. I read these words and thought, “I can’t believe Seth is writing these words, sharing these thoughts…” For me this book wasn’t just a book, but a cathartic release or a journey for Seth and possibly others who will be heard through his words.
“Some stories are told with words, that is true. Others are told with a paintbrush. But the best ones are told with love.”
I believe this book will take you to a place in your life that you where you may have had regrets, it will teach you to not give up, to always know that the ones you have loved and lost are with you always…
“Do not mourn those who leave us in the midst of the party; mourn the ones who sat in the corner and lived with no love, no energy, no dancing in their lives”
Many have said this book left them speechless, but for me, it made me want to talk about life, death, and what’s next…
“Love wins. It has always won, and it will always win. Remember that. And whatever you do, wherever you go, justice follows.”
Beautiful book Seth, thank you for sharing your life and soul with us once again.
“A person that doesn’t not read is like a ship that never leaves the harbor or a suitcase that never leaves the closet; what’s the point?”
Float on has another meaning for me now…

Our Review of The Summer Remains (5 of the Blushing Babes Reviewed & Loved it)
Our AUDIBLE Review of The Summer Remains
*This is a full-length standalone romance*
Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to a quickly worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may or may not end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.
As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coastline, Summer plays the odds and downloads a new dating app – and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.
Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will outlast this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.

Autumn Mahal and Hank Basara know they should stay away from each other. Both recovering from the loss of a mutual friend, and each bearing scars of their own, they know their love would look like a worn cliché, a trite romance novel for teens, some crappy made-for-TV movie languishing on your great aunt’s DVR. But as summer gives way to September and flirtation leads to something deeper, they learn there are some types of love you cannot run from, no matter how hard you try to flee.
Hilarious, heartbreaking and hopeful, Autumn Rising is a novella about the happiness we ruin for ourselves, the truths we can’t hide with a filter, and that elusive and victorious moment when we let love rush in and carry us to the sky. In a world of constant TMI, prepare to feel a story worth sharing – a story that will stay with you long after the summer fades to autumn.

THE THRILLING, EXPLOSIVE, AND PROVOCATIVE DEBUT FROM NEW ADULT ROMANCE AUTHOR SETH KING
In a stage of life when everything seems daunting, the fight to find love can still be the scariest thing of all – but in college senior Taylor Haney’s case, it may have just become downright deadly.
I’m bad – but I don’t want to be bad anymore.
In fact, leaving my Nashville life behind and swearing off love forever was the only thing keeping me from falling back into my old ways and fucking up again, and I was doing pretty well at pretending to be good – until I met Taylor Haney, that is.
Now I can think of nothing but Taylor. Her shy smile…the way she fidgets with her hands when she gets nervous…the sounds she makes when I tie her to my bedposts and go to town on her…the way I get a glimpse of eternity when I look into her hazel eyes…
And that little lovey feeling is the worst thing of all, because it means I’m breaking all my old rules now – and that means nobody is safe. Especially Taylor.
Because the last girl I fell in love with is currently lying in Brentwood Cemetery.

Amy Abrams doesn’t do love. Nor does she do emotional attachments, unless you count the connection she has with designer handbags. She grew up in an Upper East Side penthouse, which had about as much affection within its tastefully decorated walls as Castle Dracula. Her family is the precise reason why she points her red-soled heels firmly in the opposite direction of that dreaded four-letter word.
Then it happens. Love. It comes right out of the blue and knocks her off her six-inch heels. She learns that love comes with pesky side effects such as heartbreak, which seriously messes with the complexion. Amy promises herself that she’ll never open herself to that horrible feeling again. She doesn’t count on an infuriating, albeit drool-worthy biker to roar into her life and ruin the plans she had of locking up her heart. She keeps her distance, wary of the sinfully sexy biker whose tattoos should read Warning – dangerous alpha male, will screw up your life.
Amy may be an Upper East Side princess, but she wasn’t looking for Prince Charming. She wouldn’t mind the name of his hair stylist, though. Brock certainly isn’t a knight in shining armor, but he consumes her, body and soul. Drama pulls them apart; danger will bring them back together. When Amy is threatened Brock is there ready to save her life. Her heart is another story.
Holy shit, I was about to be sold to a sex slavery ring? My dad was not Liam Neeson; my chances of him rescuing me were slim to no…”
I was resigned to the fact I’d have to live without breathing. Without oxygen. I was willing to give you every last drop of my blood if it meant the world wouldn’t lose you.”
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth, then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing.

She has backpacked across Europe, ridden camels in the Sahara, eaten her way through Italy, and had all sorts of crazy adventures. For now, she’s back at home in New Zealand and quite happy.

LOUISA’S 5 (STAYED UP ALL NIGHT READING) STAR REVIEW
I am always so worried when I get a new Colleen Hoover book because what if I don’t like it? I am always so afraid…but I should know by now that it’s not humanly possible to not like a book written by Colleen. The question is more “how much am I going to like it?”
Many will see the synopsis and say “wasn’t this a movie”? What they will be saying after reading this book will be “This NEEDS to be a movie”. It’s nothing like anything you have read before.
The advice of her Fallon’s mother has stuck with her…
“You’ll never be able to find yourself if you’re lost in someone else.”
This statement will have Fallon making the decision to “find herself” before allowing herself to fall in love. She’s leaving LA and heading to NY, but not before she meets Ben. Their relationahip consists of seeing and talking to each other just one day a year, November 9th.
Ben is the knight in shining armor…he hears Fallon’s father degrading her and he can’t take it anymore. He intervenes and becomes her “boyfriend”. He gives her what she hasn’t had for a long time, a sense of worth. This chance meeting will change both their lives.
After this one day they decide to meet every November 9th for the next 5 years. They will not talk, text or stalk each other on social media. They find themselves drawn together on that day, year after year, ingraining each other to one another.
Colleen’s reference to books throughout this book had me laughing out loud. we have all thought it and she has put it into words!
Colleen references to book and romance novels specifically made me crack up throughout this book. Fallon gives Ben the “homework” to write a book about them. To write a love story but without the “insta-love”, “I own you’s”, the “bad boy motorcycle clubs” and the “you make me so wet” lines that make into so many romance novels (Never a Coho book). I loved that she can make light of this, as many of us readers have thought it was over the top at times.
There is a some sexy moments in this book, absolutely, it is romance, but Colleen doesn’t need the descriptive sex to make you feel the love and intimacy between Ben and Fallon and I think that’s why she’s such a revered author. She can “do” the sexy without being too descriptive.
“You have already made this the best sex I’ve ever had, and I’m not even inside you yet.”
“No combination of written words could ever do this moment justice.”
We have so many phrases that Colleen Hoover has given new meanings too
“I’ll take the Lake”
“I butterflying live you”
“Miles high Club”
We can add a new one to that list…
“Are you…booksting me?”
Booksting – Definition – “When a hot guy talks about books with a girl, it’s like sexting, but out loud an with books instead of sex.”
It sometimes it is just a book, however, this book, for me was real! As are most of Colleen Hoover’s books.
Once again- Colleen Hoover has enthralled, enraptured and absolutely amazed me with her story telling. Another 5 ++++ star read for me.
Kerry’s 5 STAR REVIEW
Once again I have gone into a Colleen Hoover book blind. I am so glad I did!
What a beautiful story about two broken souls that come together and make each other whole. I felt so many emotions from both characters, deep in the pit of my stomach, tears were shed, laughter was laughed there isn’t emotion Colleen Hoover didn’t have me feeling with this book. Colleen has written an amazing story. This book will have you feeling Ben’s and Fallon’s anguish, pain and love as if it was your own. Their journey is unbelievable and epic.
Fallon has been through something so traumatic which has changed the course of her life. She’s planning to move to NYC. But before she leaves she has a dinner with her father who is totally against Fallon following her dreams. At this dinner she has her unexpected meeting of Ben. Ben comes in after hearing all the terrible words Fallon father is spewing. He introduces himself has Fallon boyfriend. Could he be Fallon’s knight without the horse? Before Fallon leaves they make a decision to meet for the next 5 years on the same day but they can’t text, call or use social media has a way of communicating,
This book was a humorous read and is very different from anything that Colleen has written before.

Walking away from him was easy.
The first time at least.
Then he shows up late one night at Trihn’s ballet company, and all bets are off. Trihn knows that she should be careful. But when it comes to Preston Whitehall, she throws all her carefully constructed reasons for not dating out the window.
He’s cunning, charming, and hot as sin. And he knows exactly how to use those qualities to get what he wants. Soon, Trihn is dragged deeper and deeper into his rapidly intensifying whirlwind.
But where a storm is brewing…destruction and devastation follow.
Find out how Trihn goes from prodigy to party girl in this sexy full-length prequel to Platinum in the USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s All That Glitters series.
LOUISA’S 4 STAR REVIEW
My opinion of Trihn. the ‘bitchy friend” of Bryna from Diamond’s and Gold wasn’t very favorable. But this prequel has given some insight to why she is so jaded.
KA Linde has given us at the back story to why Trihn is who she is and why she’s so jaded and bitchy!
Trihn allows herself to be overwhelmed and taken by Preston. The sweet talking, good looking man. She usually doesn’t allow herself to be taken into a lustful way but just this once, she is enthralled and goes against all she knows. This decision just may change her life forever.
KA Linde has surprised me with this one. Not at all what I was expecting and that’s why I loved it as much as I did!

OUR REVIEW OF GOLD
My review 3.75
Oh, what a tale of lies and deceit does Jettie Woodruff tell. You must read Suit before Slut (it’s a twin duo). This book was highly anticipated after the doozy of a cliffhanger in Suit, and Jettie was nice enough to not make us wait too long. (IMO if you’re going to leave us with a cliffy, this is how you do it)
As soon as Slut starts, we are full steam ahead, thrown right in where we left off. Details are unravelled and piece by piece we are shown how horrible Gabby and Paxton’s life are.
I had to be subjective with this book, and with Pax. In general, his preppy appearance and cocksure attitude didn’t do it for me, so I had to look at this from Gabby’s POV. I think often as a reader you want to throw yourself in their shoes, pretend it’s you, see how you would feel in situations. I can tell you every time Pax started to redeem himself, he screwed it all up again.
But as everything is unraveled, it becomes clear that Gabby and Pax are both equally messed up individuals.
I think Jettie shows utter brilliance in her ability to leave your heart racing with this story. She writes a suspenseful tale that will keep you planted in your seat, reading.
I did feel like this started off super fast and then after halfway through I started to be hot with far too many details. I wanted, no I needed to find out what was happening and I found myself wanting to skim some things so that I could get answers.
Overall these two books will take you places you might not feel comfortable, but you will be entranced.
Kerry’s 3.75 Star Review
Suit left us off with so many unanswered questions, secrets… We were all wondering who was it Gabriella or Lizzy? Will she gain her memory? Will will really get to know Paxton?
These are the answer we are all waiting to know. The secrets and lies, mutilation through the whole story will have you on edge. We really did learn how they shared there past, why they hide the past. The couple showed us the love they have for their girls and would the love they shared be enough to get through the lies.
This is alittle different than what we except from Jettie it’s refreshing, humorous and yes she didn’t leave out the sizzling chemistry it wouldn’t be a Jettie book without it. It’s well written and I read it in one sitting it kept me guessing the whole time.
I can’t wait for the novella maybe we will get more answers.

His name is Michael Crist.
My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.
But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.
Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.
Because he’s finally noticed me.
Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.
Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.
In my city.
The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.
We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

I turned and stalked off, taking a left down the hallway toward the elevator. The doors opened as soon as I pushed the button, and I stepped inside, trying to calm my racing heart.
They still intimidated me.
And excited me. And challenged me. And knotted me up.
I’d kind of wanted to go to a party but not with them.
The doors started closing, but just then a hand shot into the elevator, and I jumped, seeing the doors re-open. I sucked in a breath, staring wide-eyed as Michael reached in, grabbed my shirt by the collar with one hand, and pulled me out.
“Michael!” I shouted.
I stumbled into him, and before I knew what was happening, he grabbed my wrists and locked them behind my back, walking into me and forcing me backward, back down the hall toward the kitchen.
“Let me go!” I demanded, my lips brushing the tip of his chin.
“I don’t know, guys,” he teased over my head, “she still seems pretty fucking easy to push around. What do you think?”
Laughter greeted me as he forced me back into the living area.
Every muscle in my body was on fire, and the tips of my toes kept getting caught under his sneakers.
I twisted my body, trying to break his hold. “What the hell are you doing?”
I pushed against his chest and jerked my body to the left, tearing out of his hold with every muscle I could muster.
I stumbled, losing my balance, and fell backward, crashing to the floor. Pain shot through my ass, running down my legs as the fall knocked the wind out me.
Shooting my hands behind me, I pushed myself up and bent my knees, looking up at him as he advanced.
He stalked over and then stopped, towering over me. I immediately moved my hands and feet, crawling backward, away from him.
But then I felt something at my back, and I halted. I twisted my head, seeing a dark pant leg, and I didn’t know if it was Damon, Will, or Kai, but it didn’t matter. I was closed in.
Oh, no. I slowly raised my eyes, seeing Michael’s lips tilt in a devious smile. I stopped breathing, seeing him lower his body to the floor, planting his knees between my bent legs, and his hands at my sides.
My neck arched back as his face hovered over mine, but I tried to keep myself up as much as possible, no matter how close his body got.
“I thought you were one of us,” his whispered, his breath caressing my lips. “I thought you could play.”
I stilled, staring into his eyes.
You’re one of us now. Will had said that to me on that night so long ago.
Michael’s amber eyes searched mine and then dropped to my mouth, his breathing growing heavy as he stared at me like he was about to take a bite.
I wanted to cry. What the hell was going on?
Three years ago was nearly the happiest night of my life, and it quickly became the worst. And ever since then, Michael not only acted as if I didn’t exist, but also, at times, as if he wished I didn’t.
Now the guys were free, and they were all back together again. What did I have to do with any of this? What did he want with me?
“I don’t know this game,” I told him, barely audible.
He stared into my eyes, thinning his own as if studying me. “All you need to know,” he finally answered, “is that you can’t tap out.”
