Blog Tour ~ Underestimated ~ Jettie Woodruff



Book synopsis: 

Warning! This is not your everyday fall in love romance. This book contains disturbing situations, strong language, graphic, sexual content, some forced, some not. If it's your happily ever after love story that you are looking for, you should probably move on. If you are up for the ride, stick around and it may just turn into a love story after all.

Morgan starts her life in a bad situation, she doesn't really know what she wants out of life. She's never had anyone to look up to, or help guide her in the right direction. She had it rough, and never dreamed that it could get worse, however she finds that it can, and does.

She learns what real hell is when she meets the husband that she doesn't want to marry, but isn't given a choice. Can she escape? She can, and does only to wake up and find herself right back at square one


Author BIO 



Jettie Woodruff is a practicing physician and has been a Civil War buff for decades. No. Not really, she is not a doctor nor is she a Civil War buff. She is however a goof-off and has a hard time being serious for too long.

She does enjoy a challenge when it comes to her writing. She feels as though she needs to pull every emotion possible from her readers. She wants you to be pissed off, questioning your sanity, depressed, happy, and hopefully turn your mind from wanting to cut the villain into tiny little pieces to loving him by the end of the book.

Underestimated was her first dark endeavor. It was a goal alongside of writing a series, a standalone romance, a young adult, which she can’t check that one off. She tried she really did, but her mind just doesn’t work outside the gutter and it quickly became rated X.

Jettie lives on 163 acres in a rural part of Ohio. She loves living in Ohio, except maybe the snow, and the long winters, maybe the hot summers too, Ah, hell, she hates Ohio. She does love the land and the solitude of the country. She just wishes it was in a geographically in a better part of the country.

Jettie has two grown children and one who will be eighteen in a matter of days. YES!!! She has also recently just had her first, cutest ever, most adorable, granddaughter in the whole world. Her oldest daughter just hit her with the news that she will be adding another grandchild to the family in February. Although she is sure she will fall in love with the little creature, she still can’t say the G word.

Jettie enjoys reading as much as she loves writing. She has way too many favorites to list, but one of her all-time favorites from years ago was the Casteel series from V.C. Andrews. One of her new favorites is C.J. Robert’s, Captive series. Reading it gave her that needed push that she required to say the hell with what people think and write Underestimated.

By day Jettie is wearing business attire and managing a mattress store. By night she is in front of a keyboard or her Kindle, wearing, well let’s not go there. Underestimated was her fifth book published. The first one was just shy of a disaster, not that it was a bad book. People liked it. She just knew nothing about it, no revising, no editing, just a spur of the moment…. “Oh, I wrote a book, lets publish it.” Train wreck and a half. Her Star series was one of her favorites and is held dear to her heart. She is now working on an adult romance that should be live around the end of August, early September. She can’t seem to stay focused on it at the moment, due to a much needed Bahamas vacation coming up with Adam Levine’s walking around half naked, buying her drinks.



Excerpt 


Lauren turned the radio to a country station. I hated country music. Brakes. Wait a minute. Drew hated country music. I had never actually listened to it. How could I hate it if I had never even listened to it?
“Where’re you from?” Lauren asked as we painted and listened to something about somebody digging their keys into the side of somebody’s souped-up four-wheel drive.
“Indiana,” I remembered.
“What part? I have a cousin in Indiana.”
And the questions begin. “Carson,” I answered with only that.
“What brought you to Misty Bay? I know you didn’t come all the way here just to work with Starlight Scarlett in her weird little coffee shop.”
“Now you’re scaring me,” I stated, hoping to get off topic.
She laughed. “You will absolutely love Starlight. She is as Bohemian as they come. I just know that you didn’t move to this sectarian town for that purpose,” she assumed.
“Are you calling this town a cult?”
“Are you going to avoid my question all night?” she retorted with her own question.
I smiled down at her from my step stool, which thank God she owned too. “I lost my job when they downsized, and my grandmother left me this house. I just decided it was time for a change.” I lied, hitting it right on the money. I smiled inside, proud that I remembered until I saw the look on her face. She knew I was lying. She knew my grandmother didn’t leave me this house.
“If we’re going to be friends, you can’t lie to me,” she said, being exceedingly blunt. “My aunt owned this house up until last month. She owns mine too. That’s why they are both ugly blue.”
I walked down the step stool to face her. “Lauren, please don’t ask me too many questions about my past. I am not running from the law or anything like that. I just need to keep a low profile,” I tried to reassure her.
“Well, you need a better story,” she said, turned and started painting again. “People around here know that my aunt has owned these two houses for years.”
Thanks a lot, Ms. K. Nice investigating skills.
“I’ve got it,” she stated matter-of-fact. I looked down at her with a peculiar stare. Why would she be so zealous about helping me? I didn’t get it.
“How old are you?” she asked, again bluntly.
“I will be twenty five next month. Why?”
“Perfect,” she alleged while I continued to look at her like she had two heads. “We went to college together, and when you lost your job, I told you about my aunt’s house, and you bought it,” Lauren exclaimed excited. “You didn’t tell anyone else the grandma story, did you?”






Underestimated by Jettie Woodruff  - Review
 
Unexpected Love Story!

I was hooked from the first page and was fully engrossed until the very last!

I couldn’t believe what Morgan went through in her life to then be handed over to the monster of a man who did even worse things to her.

She lived an awful life, yet tried to make the most of her time and never thought of leaving until it was suggested to her.  Even then she was thinking about him and how he would cope with her being gone.

Drew was a business man who wanted her just so that he could inherit some money, he didn’t want her in his life and made sure she knew that at every opportunity.  He was awful to her and didn’t deserve her in his life.

This is Morgan’s story of how she coped with this life that she had been dealt.  When she met Dawson, Lauren and Star her life changed for the better and she was allowed to be the person that she was meant to be in life. 

This love story is not your conventional love story and at some points it is hard to understand how her love grows and you get frustrated with some of the decisions that she makes.

I really enjoyed this book as it kept you guessing at every twist and turn in the story.  I was also frustrated with parts of the story too, but I’m happy with the outcome at the end of the story.  Knowing the full story – I actually believe that the resolution was the best one.

I know that any reader will enjoy this story because it is not your every day romance story.  There is eroticism, romance, unconsensual sexual acts and some thriller and intrigue in there too.

I will definitely read more from Jettie Woodruff in the future.

I give this book 5 stars, because it kept you guessing right to the end of the book what she was going to do.

Enjoy!!

Tina xx

Relinquishing Liberty
Series-Second Chances Book #1
By-Maureen Mayer
Genre-New Adult
Publication Date- August 26th, 2013


On the outside, Liberty Davis appeared to have it all…a loving family, a tight knit circle of friends, and a bright future ahead of her. Everything was perfect. That is until her brother tragically took his own life, turning her whole world upside down.


Left to pick up the pieces of her broken family, Liberty is faced with focusing all of her attention on helping her parents cope with the loss of their son, while putting her own life on the back burner. But what no one seems to realize is that she is just as broken inside.


Now, four years later, twenty year old Liberty is taking back the reins of her life. She leaves behind everything she’s ever known, hoping to make a fresh start…one where she isn’t faced with the constant reminder that her brother is nothing more than faded memory. What she didn’t expect to find along the way was Shayne.


Tall, dark and tattooed, Shayne Thompson has developed quite a reputation for being a player. Despite everyone’s negative perception, Liberty still finds herself drawn to him. When she learns that Shayne knows all too well what it feels like to lose someone you love, she finds that they have a lot more in common than just a physical attraction.


When Liberty discovers a secret from Shayne’s past that threatens to tear them apart, she begins to question everything she’s ever felt for him. Will Liberty choose to follow her heart or will she give up the one person who finally made her feel whole again?

Blog Tour ~ Vixen in Vegas ~ Emma Nichols



Blurb:

It was supposed to be a week of simply being, of living in the moment, and enjoying every minute while it lasted. Of course, that kind of intoxication can have lingering effects. For Sin, she found herself wanting to break all the rules, to extend her time with the stranger who stole her heart. Vegas was just the right kind of place to take such a gamble. Meeting up with BE at the gondolas was a risk. Love went against everything they had promised, but the best things in life can’t be planned.

Soon Alysin will be tested. 

After guarding her heart for so long, she finally let a man in and discovered that the worst things in life happened when she least expected them. When she walked in on BE with another woman and overheard their heated conversation, she suddenly remembered there was a reason she made these rules. 

Will broken rules lead to broken hearts or will she realize that though love was a gamble, she was all in?

Bio:

What made her decide to be an erotica author?


Simple.



How else was she going to parlay her two favorite past times into a career?



Emma is single and loving it. Like her first character, Alysin, Sin for short, she doesn't believe in settling or in settling down. She loves to indulge in her passions whenever the mood strikes and enjoys keeping all of life's cliche moments spicy.



Known for her sense of humor, Emma surrounds herself with friends whose antics often become the source of book fodder. Her ideal situation would be to explore the Caribbean while writing. She pursues that dream daily.

Review

Vixen in Vegas! 

Love In Sin City!

I loved Sin at Sea and didn't think that the second book could be as good as that. How wrong I was! Vixen in Vegas was all that and more!! Funny, sexy, erotic, loving, beautiful and emotional. All the ingredients needed for a fabulous book. 

I love Sin, she is sassy and takes no crap from anyone, yet she is very soft and shows her emotional side in this book. Mark is an amazing character - he has so much love to give and can't believe that Sin is really his. Together they make a fabulous couple as they are both so giving! 

I didn't see the couple of twists and turns that happened towards the end of the book. Oh My God!

Emma Nichols style is very witty and funny but serious when she needs to be. 

I absolutely loved this story and will definitely read more of her books!

I would give this book a hot and steamy 5 stars

Enjoy!!

Author Bio 

Meet Tracy Ellen...

When I was eleven, I got about a hundred bucks in cash between my birthday and Christmas presents. This was BIG money back then. I spent every red cent of it on five pair of darling shoes and a couple of heaving bosom / manly muscle romance novels. For all of my life, I've always had a thing for shoes that make me say "Oh yum", and a thing for reading books with plots centered on dangerously smart men and sassy, intelligent women. It's not an exaggeration to say I've avidly read everything I could get my hands on to find these jewels.

One day this past year or so, I realized that I spend more money on books now than I do on shoes. I was stunned. Should I be ashamed of this fact or proud? Then an even stranger thing happened. It was like a switch turned off/on inside me. All of a sudden instead of wanting to read about romance, I wanted to write my own stories about the building sexual attraction between a confident woman and a mysterious man.

So began my budding writing career. Then I made another happy discovery; I absolutely love writing! Since then, I've become a writing fiend. My self-published books include A Date with Fate and Courted by Karma in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series. I'm releasing the third book in this series, In Love by Design, in September 2013.

For those of you who may want to know some pertinent facts: Don't worry--I still adore yummy shoes and always will, even when I have one foot in the grave. Also, I was born in Indiana, the third out of five hellions. (My mother wanted to go to work every day.) I've always lived in the Midwest, except for six steamy months in Florida when I was nineteen. Currently, I reside in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota with my family. The college town of Northfield featured in Anabel's Adventures is just down the road a jaunt.

I love, love, love connecting with readers. Reviews, comments, posts, and emails are always welcome. Follow my blog (although, I’m sorry to say it's boring because I'd rather write books than write posts in my blog) or like me on Facebook to be aware of events, giveaways, new books I'm publishing, or a rare posting of something that strikes my funny bone. (Hmm, for a woman who loves to connect, I'm actually quite unsociable in the social media forum...)
