Author Bio

Rylee Everley Series by S.M. Knowles

S.M. Knowles was born in Elmira, New York where she was swept away in a whirlwind to the Land of Oz--Independence, Kansas. Her parents were relocating for working opportunities and decided that this would be the perfect place to start new roots. Little did she know that this place would contribute to the inspiration for the first book she wrote in her Rylee Everley Series.

While growing up, S.M. would travel the roads around her house while imagining she was somewhere else. Her imagination would take her everywhere, making the long hot summer days seem shorter throughout her fantasies.

At the age of twelve, she decided to write her first book. Filled mostly with dialog, she filled up one-hundred pages, front and back. After taking the book downstairs to show her mom, and persuading her to buy her more paper, she excitedly ran back to her room. As she barreled through the door, S.M. tripped over items left on her floor, and her papers came raining down in her room. Discouraged, she stood there in tears, picking up her papers and throwing them in the trash. Her work had no organization, no numbers on her pages, just a child fulfilling a joy that she would put down and not pick up again.

When she became older, she joined the military for something different. In that time, she was able to explore many places and even met her husband in Iraq. After coming home, she started her family in Arizona and went back to school, earning a Master's degree in Adult Education and Training.

The Arrangment 14 Review

ferroThe Arrangement 14 (The Arrangement Series)
By: H.M. Ward
Release date: 2/24/2014


Sean Ferro is a liar. Everything he’s ever told me melts away until only the truth remains and I don’t like what I see. Gabe tried to warn me, but I didn’t understand the depths of Sean’s corruption until he let them take me away. After everything we’ve been through, I’m crushed, but I refuse to accept this fate. Screw that, I’m not dying tonight.



I am late posting this review on here. I did post my reviews on Goodreads (as soon as I was finished with the last page!) and then B&N and Amazon when the links were Available.

Plot: 3.5  Characters: 5  Overall: 4

With a sad heart..... Let me start off by stating I had to fight my inner demons on giving this "installment" a full on 4 stars. This is the first book in the entire series I felt this way over. Since I am a faithful Sean and Avery follower and LOVE this series.

Let me get my inner demon problems out of the way first:
1.It felt shorter then the other books. While technically I went back and checked into this and it seems to be average with the other books in this series, I just couldn't get past the tug of it's "where the hell is the rest of my book" type feeling.So since I honestly know it's the same "averaged" length I can't hold it for a bad rating. It's just my personal opinion.
2. I felt like we pretty much started in the same place we ended.

Now on to the good stuff:
I still enjoyed the book and finished it at one setting since I didn't want to put it down. I think that majorly lied upon hoping to find out everything that is going on and who the shooter is from the last few books.

I felt like this book was packed with more action then some of the other books. It still had the equal amount of emotional roller coaster as we have all came to expect in the Sean and Avery world. And of course the drama is still there.

In these installment we start off with the Avery in "box" scenario that we were left with in AR13. And Sean and Black trying to make terms in the dorm room.

Avery is given some useful advise from Gabe. Will she listen? She is kind of confused with what he tells her, so she needs to peice it together better for her to fully understand what he means by this information. Since Gabe hasn't steared her wrong in the past she knows he is telling the truth.

From there we have the normal Sean and Avery drama, mixed in with an oh so sexy Trystan Scott! We find out the Mel is still holed up in the bar with Trystan (her dreamer boy!)After talking to Mel, Avery is trying to piece together things about the murder that occured a couple installments ago. I can't go into detail here as I don't want to reveal to much of what she learns from Black. This part is very interesting though. I will leave it at that.

Both Black and Sean give Avery an offer. She is having problems trying to decide what to do. The book centers around these questions. She enlists the help of Mel and Marty but both have different outlooks and opinions. She needs to do some searching from within to give her the answer she is needing. (This installment we don't learn her answer)

Sean, Black and Gabe all seem to be working together in some form to figure out who this mystery shooter/killer is. Every plan they have seems to fall through and something happens, or Avery doesn't cooperate. (I am starting to get sick of Averys you can't tell me what to do attitude! You would think she would be more thankful to people who are trying to keep her safe and figure out who is doing this. But is she? Nope)

So after my inner demons I loved this book. I just wish their were a faster story line like at the start of the series. I feel like it's starting to lose some of it's momentum. Which in turn makes me VERY sad. I say this because I feel like people might think they are wasting money when they aren't really learning much.

With that being said, if the momentum and story line picked up I could see this series making it several more books.

I leave you with this shocker: By the end of the book there will be TWO dead bodies. Who are they? Read it to get your answer to that and what TWO offers Avery faces.

(This entire series is one of my favorite reads, so don't let my 4 stars scare you away. Every book before this I would highly suggest 5+ stars. This one single book just didn't give me the umph I wanted. But that didn't get me down, I will continue to ride this series out, as I love Avery, Sean, Mel, Black, Gabe etc. The characters do it for me!)

My Way Series Blitz!



(My Way Series, #1)



Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!

Hey Hoochies! I'm Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its!

I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket list, a '66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that changed my life forever.

I found Cree… 

A pirate with a little princess and they swept me off my ever lovin' feet, filling my world with sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again.

They forced my fragile heart to trust and love without fear.

But the truth is, nobody’s past stays hidden forever. It’s an invisible monster waiting to attack and destroy. It has the capability to ruin everything you’ve worked to set right.

All it takes is one final blow to the gut to end everything…

(My Way Series #2)

by: HJ Bellus


Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin.

Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.

My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp…

Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp was sexy as hell, a charismatic beast, and soon became one of my best friends. We shared a love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck.

The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths? Or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?
