Three years lost; a body marred and a mission complete. 

Waking after an four day coma, Kady Jenson felt her life was crashing down around her. Three years of her memories were missing, and the compelling man at her side was not her years-long partner, but a stranger – a stranger who promised to help her recover what she had lost.

But how did Kady come to such a place?

What dark, mysterious events stole her past and threatened her future?

How did her lover become a stranger, and a stranger become so terribly important?

What happened to turn Kady’s orderly life into a terrifying nightmare which would leave her permanently marked, body and soul?

Author Bio:

Raised in a creative family, witnessing one another expressing themselves through creativity, albeit musically or through a form of literature, it was only a matter of time before my passion for devising characters and their unique stories in their own world, began to form and grow. From there the seed was sown and flourished into a young girls dream.

Throughout the years I have often toyed with the idea of pursuing this path, yet unknowing where to begin. There are so many routes in this day and age to help get from A to B, that the dream was both tangible and terrifying. So with that, and after a few months of kicking myself into gear thanks to a certain someone, I decided to self-publish, and that decision was most probably one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I am a mother of a 6 year old son who knows how to keep me on my toes, and married my high school sweetheart 6 years ago. I can't express how supportive and understanding both have been while pursuing this journey.

If I'm not writing I'm constantly thinking about writing and can be found either chasing my son around, with my nose in book or being creative in the kitchen.

Blog Tour for Eva Simone


Synopsis: 
Jess Foster is your typical party girl…or so it seems….

She’s got it all, money, looks, brains and sex appeal to rival any siren. Living in Manhattan with her best friend Lily, Jess enjoys the high life, toying with men and casting them aside, but behind the party girl façade is a broken, scared young woman who feels like she can’t confide in anyone. She hides it well until she spends the night with a sexy Italian player.
Simon Mantovani doesn’t do relationships.
He’s witnessed one woman he loves being broken beyond repair. He couldn’t protect her…and he will never let that happen again. He keeps his conquests to one night only, making sure to remove any emotional connection from the equation. That is until he’s introduced to a vixen who captures his attention. Convincing himself it’s a purely physical reaction, he embarks on a quest to get her out of his system…not so easy when you recognize the pain of a broken soul behind the most beautiful eyes you’ve ever seen.
Have Jess and Simon met their match in each other? Will they be able to forge something real together, or will their primal, undeniable attraction to each other be the very thing that rips them apart? Jess is a master of self-sabotage. Confronted with a decision that could change everything, will she put her trust in the man she so desperately wants?
A thrilling tale of caustic love between two people that swore never to go down this path. Jess and Simon will take you on a rollercoaster ride as they struggle to find their place in each other’s lives.


Sometimes love just isn’t enough…

Review: 
Enchanted and Desired

I enjoyed the 1st book in this series and fell in love with Jess and Simon. Their connection was evident then. I was looking forward to their book. 

Jess is a very strong independent woman with some underlying trust issues and you can't blame her. She finds it hard to let men fully into her heart. Even sexy and loyal men like Simon Mantovani. Yeah he is known for his way with the ladies but you can see the changes around Jess. The sexual tension is at hurricane level between the two. From his Italian looks and sexual allure, Jess can't fight the attraction any longer and their journey begins. They have so many ups and downs I just wanted to hug them both. Eva completely pulls you into their feelings; you feel every emotion from Jess and Simon. Simon wants all in with Jess but she doesn't fully give 100% and Simon hates that but his loves holds firm but for how long? 
Events make their love bubble burst and more hurt causes them to pull away, again I wanted to hug them both because you can't help but feel both their pain. 
Things happen for a reason and they are now a permanent fixture in each other's lives and my stomach knotted when they didn't go down the happy path straight off. Life is full of bumps and pain but Simon wants give up and he stands by Jess's side.
This is an amazing story and everyone will enjoy it.
