Cover Reveal ~ Waking Up In Vegas by Stevie Kisner


~ Cover Reveal ~

Waking Up In Vegas by Stevie Kisner


First off I have to say that I'm really loving this cover ~ who is this man? Well that I don't know but I'm excited to be participating in Stevie Kisner's Cover Reveal of Waking Up In Vegas. I added it to my Goodreads TBR ~ and I'm excited for the release!
I’m Tack Morgan, and I’m Las Vegas Magazine’s Sexiest Man. I’m the host of the most listened-to morning drive-time show on Vegas’s FM dial.

I’m also in therapy for sexual harassment.

My therapist is the one making me write this. The doc says it’ll help put things into perspective.

To be clear, I don’t have sexual harassment issues. I have sexual frustration issues.

And it’s totally not my fault.

That responsibility rests squarely with the person I’m being accused of harassing. I see her each and every weekday morning at the ungodly hour of 6 am.

Funny. I used to think that was the best time of the whole day. I lived for starting my mornings so early, not seeing my bed until many, many hours later.

Unless it was for recreation.

At the risk of sounding cocky, I recreated a lot.

Sex is my sport of choice. Or at least it was, until Jen waltzed through the station door and announced she was my new morning-show co-host.

I swear, she’s developed some sort of pheromone-canceling ESP that follows me around everywhere and cockblocks me at every turn. I haven’t gotten laid in… too long.

Honestly, I haven’t been keeping track.

Actually, yes, I have.

It’s been two months.

Coincidentally, that’s exactly how long Jensen McKenzie has been my co-host.

I don’t think my balls can get any bluer
After reading that synopsis I can't wait to see what happens between Tack & Jensen.  Waking Up In Vegas anticipated release date is December 2013!

~ About the Author ~



This is not an easy bit to write. Mostly because I don't find myself a interesting subject. I've known me too long to be fascinated. But you haven't, so here goes:

I fell in love with music early.
According to my mother, I knew all the words to The Archie's 'Sugar Sugar' when I was two. If that gives you a clue to my age, so be it. I won't 'fess up, as my brain thinks it's twenty-six, and I don't want it to catch on that it's not.

Reading followed shortly after that... my brother is two years older than I am (almost to the day) and I would sit next to him when he read. He let me because it was the only time I wasn't hitting him. I did it because I loved words (it's the fire-sign in me) and he would trace under the words with his finger as he read out loud. As he sounded out words, I did the same in my head, and after a few months, the wondrous world of all those funky symbols finally made sense. I took off with it, and never stopped.

('Aw, honey honey... you are my candy girl, and you've got me wanting you...') Sorry. Once the iPod in my head gets to playing, it doesn't shut off. And I mentioned a song, so it decided I needed to hear it. On repeat.

Fast-forward to now:
I live with my husband and grown son in a suburb of Albuquerque. How my son can be all grown up is beyond me. After all, I'm still twenty-six, right? A beautiful Golden Retriever own us, and thinks we live to give her turkey and throw balls endlessly. She's mostly right.

Nelle L'Amour's Gloria's Secret Blog Tour

Today I'm delighted to welcome Nelle L'Amour's Gloria's Secret Blog Tour to Stick Girl Book Reviews. This happens to be a tour that I'm hosting and a book that I thoroughly enjoyed and can't wait to share with you!
Gloria Long is the beautiful, self-made CEO of Gloria’s Secret, the world’s largest retailer of lingerie. While her global emporium is famed for selling erotic fantasies, Gloria’s emotional scars inhibit her own sexual desires. Her powerful defenses melt when she meets Jaime Zander, the devastatingly gorgeous advertising guru, who is determined to win not only her account but also her heart by awakening her sexuality.

A man who has never heard the word “no,” Jaime takes his creativity to the limit to make Gloria fall apart and fall for him. But major obstacles stand in the way--Gloria’s Secret’s ruthless Chairman, who covets Gloria and is out to destroy Jaime, as well as his manipulative sexpot daughter, who wants both Gloria’s job and her hot, new love. Complicating matters further, Gloria harbors a dark, horrific secret, that when exposed, will shatter both her empire and her life. Will she be able to have it all or will the walls come tumbling down?

This approximately 225-page novel will be followed by the suspenseful and steamy sequel, Gloria’s Revenge, in October 2013
My 5 Star Review ~
I was provided with an ARC of Gloria's Secret in exchange for an honest review. I've never read anything by this author but you can bet your arse I will be reading more from her. I went into this book blind ~ not knowing the author's style and with no expectations whatsoever and I have to say I was certainly doing this....... Gloria is the CEO of Gloria's Secret which sell's affordable high quality lingerie! She built her Company from the ground up and made it into a highly successful venture! The book starts out and immediately I was ..... I was like seriously what just happened there? The book delves into Gloria's childhood which was far from picture perfect. Along with her best friend, Kevin, she has made something out of her life but she has a secret and it's a BIG one and it is ... Gloria is in New York for Gloria's Secret Annual fashion show along with interviewing major advertising companies to kick of her new line of FSOG inspired lingerie and other things. It is during an elevator ride to her next appointment when her eye's first land on Jaime ~ and let me tell you her first introduction to him had me... I seriously was laughing and thinking I would've DIED! Jaime is all that and a bag of chips ladies. He is the kind of man that makes ladies want to ..... He is a head turn with those denim blue eyes! When they meet up again I can pretty much guarantee that Gloria was beyond.... and then the ride begins! This book had an alpha male and some very hot and steamy ..... It also came with it's very own want to .... spoiled little rich girl, Vivien, who happens to be the Chairman of Gloria's Secret Board! I was literally .... when I learned more about Vivien & her father and how they actually "fit" into this story. Jaime didn't have the pristine childhood one would think regardless of his wealth. There was a point in this book where I wanted to..... when Gloria witnesses something and then I wanted to ... right along with her. Gloria needs control in her life and Jaime wants to take control of her life but at what costs? and I keep wondering what his real motivations are? I feel like there is a "hidden" agenda that has yet to be revealed. A return trip to Paris for Gloria was another very ..... point in this book. She has just suffered a devastating blow and BAM another hit's her. Of course, there were a few surprises in Paris one that made me want to ... and another that had me..... I was freaking ESTATIC! Of course I got to the end and I was ..... wait, it just ended LIKE THAT???? NO WAY I need to know what happens NOW! I was totally...... It was a great read for me! I loved the suspense but I also liked the fact that Gloria was thrown off her game. She is seen as such a powerful woman and when Jaime comes into the picture he surely.... Gloria so much so she was often flustered! Gloria's Secret is a very sexy read that will have you keep turning the pages trying to fit all the puzzle pieces together but leaving you without a few key pieces. It's a story about passing control & trust onto someone else but at what price? I can't wait for Gloria's Revenge to see what happens next with this. There are still secrets to be revealed and the repercussion's from such secrets make me wonder what the downfall will be. Will Gloria open her heart and let "love" in? Is it truly love? and will her past come back and make her pay for something that happened a long time ago? Well I honestly don't know that but I trust Nelle will answer my questions with her next book! A 5 star sexy read set in New York City & Paris! The secondary characters range from warm & funny to downright shady & disgusting. There will be some you want to ... and a couple you will totally want to ... I recommend this one if you like a little suspense tied into your romance as well as one hot alpha male who will have you fanning yourself many times throughout this book!
