Changing Tunes by Heather Gunter Review Tour



Changing Tunes is a New Adult Romance by the fabulous Heather Gunter and today we get to share our thoughts with you.


Title:   Changing Tunes
Series:   The Changing Series
Author:  Heather Gunter
Genre:  New Adult
Release Date:  February 16, 2014
Cover Design:  Robin Harper of Wicked by Design



Ashley Davis is over her high school 'bitch' label and has decided to reinvent herself. College offers a new beginning, a chance to be different. After being assaulted, she's realized that she needs to change and college is just the place to do it. Nobody knows the Ashley she used to be and she'd like to keep it that way.
Afraid of falling into the same patterns she decides that having no friends, no life and focusing on school is the way to go, but she didn’t bank on someone like Mac as her roommate or the tall, dark and completely geek hot in his glasses, Zeke Whitman.

Ezekiel (Zeke) Whitman is driven and focused when it comes to school. When he's forced to partner with a tall, leggy blonde with a slight attitude, he's thrown for a loop. With so much at stake, Zeke can’t afford distractions and Ashley is certainly that. From their first encounter Zeke sees more than just another gorgeous girl.

As Ashley grapples with leaving the ‘old’ her behind, she realizes that sometimes changing tunes isn't as easy as it sounds. Sometimes you have to keep a little of the person that you were, in order to become the person that you want to be.









I yank his shirt up and over his head, and make quick work of the button on his pants, pushing them all the way down never breaking eye contact. He senses my urgency and lets me take control. It’s liberating, but different at the same time. Touch is involved; his. His touch makes me feel alive. I walk us backwards until we fall onto the bed. He holds his arms out to keep from falling and squishing me. I wrap my arms around his neck and yank his head to me, kissing him with all I have. My tongue enters his mouth and makes a thorough exploration. I suck on his tongue and then bite it gently. He groans into my mouth, my hands trailing down his muscles and down past that sexy trail of hair. I grip him firmly and feel him jerk in my hands. I pump a couple of times and then swirl my finger across his tip, running my hand back down, repeating the movement again.

“Sweetheart, you’re killing me.”

 He kisses my neck and uses his fingers to roll and pinch my breast, making me even wetter.

“God, I need you now.” I push him and roll him over, straddling him. I lean over the floor and snatch his wallet out of his pants pocket, handing it to him. He grabs a condom out then hands it to me with a playful smile. I play back. “What, you want me to put it on?”

His smile grows bigger. “You’re so damn sexy when I watch you tear it open with your mouth. And when I watch you roll it over me, it nearly undoes me.”

I do what I’ve done so many other times, but this is different. It’s intimate and special. From now on, I’ll only ever do it for him. 







4.5 Stars

Changing Tunes by Heather Gunter was an absolute joy to read. I fell into this story and had a hard time pulling myself away. The characters in this story are relatable and written with a perfect combination of emotional issues, redemption and love. 

Ashley Davis is starting her new life in college, trying to become a better person, she is going to steer clear of the “bitch” was in high school. This girl has some major problems, she is described as a complete knockout but they way she degrades herself is sad. I felt for her in this story. Her family life is less than desirable and I don’t think she’s ever had anyone really care for her. When she gets to college, she meets Mackenzie “Mac”, her new roommate. I loved Mac and I am pretty sure she is Ashley’s first real friend. There are also a couple of other great supporting characters that form a pretty tight bond, and then there is Zeke Whitman… THE GUY <3 a="" and="" but="" character="" combination="" damn="" funny="" genuine="" great="" have="" he="" hot="" is="" lethal="" may="" nbsp="" secrets="" sexy="" shock="" smart="" some="" span="" swoon="" that="" what="" will="" you.="" zeke="">

This book has everything I love in a good romance: Love, Loss, Friendship, Redemption, but it also has those twists and turns that I didn’t’ see coming. I have high hopes for The Changing Series; I believe it’s going to be a great series from Heather. Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

Look for Tattered Pieces by Heather Gunter - Coming Soon

Riding high on the waves of success, Dove Sinclair, lead singer of Tattered Pieces, has it all - until one fateful night her party hard lifestyle almost costs her everything. Stupid and reckless doesn't even begin to describe her actions. Getting arrested definitely wasn't in the game plan, nor was an enforced stay in the Serenity Lakeview Clinic. If Dove wants to keep her band, her career and her life, then there is no alternative. The question is, will rehab force her to deal with the things that have triggered her reckless behavior or will she continue trying hard to forget and fade further into the dark.

Jasper Phillips is the kind of guy everyone loves. He comes from a good family, works hard and seems to have it all. Friendly, positive and popular are words people use to describe Jasper regularly. Sometimes what’s on the outside is only what we want people to see, while on the inside we’re battling demons that are too frightening to describe. When those demons manage to catch up to you, the whispers of their world becomes a very inviting place.

Dove doesn’t understand how Jasper fits in at Serenity Lakeview Clinic but something about him calls to her, awakening her desire to feel alive and normal again. As Jasper battles his inner darkness he is drawn to Dove, all the while fearing that if she gets close enough she won't like what she sees. As Jasper struggles to stay in the light, can he help Dove see what she has right in front of her?

Cover Reveal for Cowboy Dreams by Kasey Millstead



Title: Cowboy Dreams
Series: Down Under Cowboy #3
Author: Kasey Millstead
Cover Design: Cover It Designs
 Release Date: June 2014 

My decision for moving from Sydney, NSW, to Pine Creek NT, was purely selfish...to begin with.

My best friend, Edie, had gone off on an adventure to find herself, and instead she'd found the love of her life. Not wanting to be left behind, I decided to follow her. I made this choice for a few reasons. First, I didn't want to be without my best friend. Second, I'd slept with my boss, and trust me, once that happens, shit just gets awkward! And third, on a visit with Edie, I'd met a man.

Clay Forde.

A hunk of Aussie, crocodile egg collecting, cowboy, badass, hotness.

We had a one-night stand...and then another one when I visited again.

Then, I found out I was pregnant.

So now, moving to the Northern Territory wasn't just about me escaping the awkwardness at work, or tagging along with my best friend. It was about developing a relationship with a man I hardly knew, who I was about to have a baby with.

I'm loathe to admit it, but I'm scared and I'm nervous. But most of all, I'm petrified he's going to reject me. Because even though our "relationship" so far has been limited to two sexual encounters, I can't help the feelings that have taken root in my bones...feelings for Clay. And the worst part is, I don't even know if he feels an inkling of what I do.

Like a thief in the night, love will take them both by surprise.


Desolation By Jo Matthews
Liam Jenkins grew up with everything he ever wanted. At age 17, his world is ripped apart and he finds himself without a home, without a car, and without money. His support system is gone and he is left to fend for himself. Not having any other option, Liam turns to sex and small crimes to survive.
When a beautiful woman chooses not to turn him into the cops but invites him to her hotel room instead, Liam’s world is flipped upside down again and everything he’s learned on the streets ceases to exist.
