"What better way to celebrate a birthday and exceptional hard work than with the best announcement I could be making. *drumroll* After careful calculations, Good Faith’s final totals for this year to date are 1327– which means….

That’s right, you amazing readers, supportive fans, and everyone who spread the word about Liz, Stewart Realty, Jack Gordon, Jack and Sara, and the rest of the crazy Stewart Realty family in an effort to get us over the 1000-books-sold by 12/17 mark – you did it! You. Are. AWESOME! From the very bottom of our hearts, we thank you. This is the best birthday present you could give Liz – the demand from her fans for more of a “beloved series that never should’ve been.” Because that’s exactly what this series was when it started and with each book, with each reader, with each fan, it became so much more.

So, as a special thank-you to all of you who have been with us through it all. To you who have waited just over a year to find out “what happens after.” To everyone who read the last five words of Good Faith and screamed “NO! Liz, no” with tears streaming down your face. For the fans who came into the Good Faith support group and yelled at us or emailed us privately when you got to “that certain spot.” For every single one of you, we are releasing an extra special sneak peek today at the first chapter of “Net Worth” the Good Faith sequel."

Jack Gordon is Ann Arbor's most delectable bachelor. At age thirty-five, he's made millions as a top-selling Ann Arbor real estate broker and has the right connections to close a deal by any means necessary. With his rugged good looks and compelling personality, he has a virtual black book most men would kill for and he uses it often, never settling for one woman for very long.

While his D/s past remains buried, exactly where he wants it, an undercurrent of boredom and dissatisfaction runs through his life now. A disastrous experience years earlier made him swear off the whole scene, but the more Jack suppresses his natural Dom, the more his frustration grows.

Sara Thornton, a rookie in the real estate game, has fast-tracked herself to the top of the Ann Arbor market. Her life reflects a disciplined and focused routine, exactly the way she wants it. However, as her career takes off, the fulfillment she seeks remains inexplicably out of reach. The one thing she knows for sure, she will not join the Jack Gordon groupies in her company, no matter how tempting that might seem.

A chance encounter, then a difficult transaction, throw Jack and Sara together and the sparks fly high and hot and often. Forced to confront the compulsions that gain momentum with each sizzling encounter, their relationship seems to spiral out of control until Jack finally admits what he needs, and shows Sara what she's been missing.

Jack Gordon thought he’d finally made it. He had a wildly successful career, money in the bank and even returned to his life as Dom, putting an end to a string of unfulfilling sexual encounters. Now that he's made the ultimate commitment to Sara Thornton, he believes all is right in their world. However, a series of misunderstandings and a dose of self-fulfilling prophesy bring his perfectly crafted house of cards tumbling down around him, forcing him to confront lingering misgivings about marriage and trust. Could those be the only two things he can never achieve?

Sara struggles with her intense need for Jack and her desire for less volatility in her busy life, two goals which appear to be mutually exclusive. Although willing to put in the time and emotional effort to make their relationship work, she finds it futile and frustrating, littered with clashes thanks to near-identical personalities and temperaments. Given Sara’s history, easing back into the comfortable status quo becomes easier than fighting a war with the one person who should be her safe haven. But will the easier choice satisfy her the way only Jack can? Is her "war" one that comes from without or within? 

Buffeted by circumstance, temptation and distraction, Jack and Sara’s tenuous relationship crumbles, sparking a continuous quest for the ever elusive: trust, love and acceptance. By the time they rebuild a foundation for renewal, fate has other plans. This leaves them both reeling, once again questioning their destiny. 

Closing Costs

Buy it on Amazon | BN | iBooks | Kobo | Tri Destiny

Love conquers all? Not likely, according to Sara Thornton. She's spent eight years coming to terms with the new parameters of her life while resigning herself to the idea that “happily ever afters” are best left to fairytales. Sales manager for her successful real estate office and juggling an added element of responsibility she never thought she'd face, Sara continues to struggle with the men in her life. Love, for her, has only meant hurt, broken trust and anger; all of which she’s completely banished from her life, so she claims.

Jack Gordon has come a long way since his early days of obsession with Sara. As the general manager of Stewart Realty, his own level of responsibility for the well-being of others has ramped up. He’s even honed his caretaking skills, now that he has someone who loves him unconditionally.

Continuing to invest effort and rebuild their relationship, he and Sara grow close as friends. Despite this, his ultimate question remains unanswered; the one he keeps asking, no matter how many times she says no. Sara isn't prepared for the keen focus of his need--to have her back, once and for all. Her stubborn resistance nearly rips both lives apart

The epic conclusion to The Realtors series, Closing Costs brings Jack and Sara truly full circle. Proving that the heat of lust and obsession; the need for control and to be mastered in many areas of life can lead to love —surprising you when you least expect it – if you will only allow it.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Identity by Cleo Scornavacca

Title: Identity (Miss Taken #2)
Author: Cleo Scornavacca
Genre: Romance, suspense 

..............People aren’t always who you believe them to be.

Dominick Kane and Rain Medici started their relationship with one another in the most unconventional way.

He kidnapped her.

With the kidnapping now behind them, life returns to normal, right?

Not a chance.

The push, the pull and their fights for control that we’ve come to love about Dominick and Rain
still exist. And so does their passion.

People aren’t who you think they are. Familiar faces are not so familiar. The past and the present
collide, opening up all of those old wounds and struggles once again.

Now, everything you thought you knew, gets blown out of the water.

Can Dominick and Rain finally heal what’s broken? Or will new discoveries push them even
further apart.

Will love win out and bring them back together? Or will ghosts of the past ultimately destroy

their love once and for all.................


5 Stars

I like how the story starts off.  You immediately see Dominick's reaction to Rain leaving him and there is no lapse in time from the end of Miss Taken to the beginning of Identity.  Rain is so strong and she finally learns to stand on her own 2 feet and stand up for herself without anyone else's help.
Questions that you were left unanswered in book 1 were answered in book 2.  More questions arise in book 2 and you guessed it we have to wait for them in book 3.  Cleo does a great job of holding the readers attention and keeps them interested and not just in one book but in a whole series.  I have a love/hate relationship with all the characters especially Rain, Dominick and Tommy and I know that is what Cleo intends when she writes her characters but it doesn't make it any less frustrating when you want to punch them so very often. Jaw dropping secrets are revealed and more are kept and hearts get crushed.  There are super sweet surprises throughout this entire book and you won't see them coming.  Next is Tommy's story and Oh boy I can't wait for you to read what happens with Tommy in Identity!  I love Cleo's books and will continue to read and recommend everything she puts out.  


As far back as I can remember, I've loved books. I love reading them and finally, I've admitted to myself that I love to write them. Since the day I started to write Rain and Dominick's story, I've never looked back.
When I write, much of the time the story plays in my head as a movie and sometimes even includes background music. We can all use a little background music. I try to add elements of things I love. And share them with the readers. I'll continue to create characters and stories that you can laugh, cry, love, hate and even become slightly crazy about.
Cleo is a wife and mom. She is an aesthetician and make-up artist and has worked for companies such as Bobbi Brown, Princess Marcella Borghese and MAC cosmetics. Besides writing and loving to read everything romantic; she has a healthy obsession with the Jersey Shore and loves to go there to write every chance she gets.  Let's face it, we can all use some crazy every now and then.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Faery Marked by Mary Waibel

Book Blurb:
When Callie Rycroft wakes to find purple flames flickering on the ceiling, she believes she’s still dreaming. But soon she’s forced to accept that she has magic―a special magic that grants her entrance into the Faery Realm.

For centuries humans have been banned from Faery, but dangerous times call for dangerous measures. Declared Champion by the Faery Queen, Callie is assigned a Guardian, and tasked with finding the Cordial―a magical elixir needed to keep the portal to the Faery realm a secret from humans.

The upside? Reece Michaels, the boy she's been crushing on for years, is her Guardian. Callie hopes that, by spending time with Reece, he'll start to see her as more than just his best friend's sister.

The downside? She's in a race not only against time, but against another Champion, and a rogue Guardian―a Guardian who stands to threaten her developing relationship with Reece.

Magic, mistaken identities, and hidden agendas are the least of Callie's worries when she learns that the Cordial requires a sacrifice. Will Callie be willing to risk everything―even Reece―to complete her task as Champion? Or will she let the portal open, and doom both realms?

Strong female characters use both brain and brawn to save the day and win the heart of their men. Mary enjoys connecting with her readers through her website:

5 Stars

Faery Marked begins with us meeting Callie, a student in high school and she's complaining about having to get up early because her brother has freshman college classes at the butt crack of dawn so she had to go to school a little early. She only does that a few days a week because the other days her crush Reece takes her to school so she gets to sleep in. That's her biggest worry for now is getting up early after having nightmares. All that starts to change when she starts having weird feelings around certain people and then as the blurb says she wakes up from a nightmare one night to purple flames on her ceiling. What!? Purple flames...I thought to myself, how cool! Anyways, someone finally tells her what’s going on and that she's the Champion that the faery realm needs to keep their secret and save everyone in both realms. She steps up and does what needs to be done. She's got great character and strength to go into something as blind as she did. With Reece by her side as Guardian there isn't anything she can't conquer or is there? Is someone going to lead her down a different path that could have horrible consequences? I figured out way ahead of time where the ending was headed, well sort of because I was still surprised about a couple of things and now I can't wait to read the second book.
Ms. Waibel has a way of telling a story that will suck you right in and leave you wanting more. Her characters are super fun to read about. I loved the plot and the magic was out of this world awesome. Imagine just thinking of something and being able to do it. I don’t read much YA but this is definitely a great start to a new YA series and the next book can't come soon enough.

Everything Avianna Linton thought she knew was shattered in one traffic stop. With her life turned upside down, she flees to the bright lights of New York City hoping for anonymity and a new life.

Rising from nothing, Noah Adams holds onto his power and control with a bone-crushing grip. No one dared challenge his authority until her…

Avi’s disdain for Noah is barely contained, and Noah does everything he can to restrain himself—a concept he has little experience with.

There’s more between the two than either of them realize. A force looms near, hovering with deadly precision and motivated solely by revenge.

Avi wonders who her new friends truly are and if she’s already in too deep. Noah, accustomed to getting what he wants, will do whatever it takes to draw Avi’s in deeper.

Deeper is an interracial romantic suspense novel by new author Allyn Lesley.

Where the fuck is that little she-devil?

Zo pointed toward the dance floor, addressing his employer’s unvoiced question. “Under the ball.”

Noah saw her clear as day and dancing way too close with someone who might soon be leaving the club with a limp. He blew out a breath. She knew better than this, yet she still tested the limits set up for her protection.

A restraining hand on Noah’s arm paused him mid-stride. “Boss?”

Noah’s eyes widened at Zo’s hand. Immediately, the younger man’s hand fell away, and he wisely stepped back. Even in the dim light, Noah saw embarrassment tinge Zo’s face.

“I, um. Excuse me, Mister Adams, but I can’t let you go over there,” Zo said, swallowing the fear his boss evoked.

“Let. Me?” Noah pointed at himself and straightened to his impressive six feet and five inches. “And who’s going to stop me?”
