Release Day Blitz & Review: Lie to Me by Gracen Miller!

Lie to Me by Gracen Miller
NA Dystopian Romance

In the 23rd century, war has ravaged the planet.
A biological weapon has decimated the population, and those who remain have been driven to desperate measures to survive. Over the course of a century, evolution delivers an answer — the Xeno gene, which provides its bearers with immunity to disease. All adolescent girls are tested for the X-gene, and carriers are obligated to bear children for the good of the human race.
The promise of salvation comes at a terrible price.
Stone Emmerson, heir to a position of supreme power, is surprised to learn his best friend Kella is an X-gene carrier. He’s quick to claim her as his own, but as a mere servant, Kella can’t help but doubt his motives. Before he can offer the protection of his name, she escapes his household. Mourning her loss, Stone becomes a black sheep among his peers by focusing on the welfare of his people.
While survival and freedom hang in the balance…
Starting over under an assumed name, Kella is a founding member of the X-Diplomats, a radical group dedicated to stopping enforced X-gene testing and promoting equal rights for commoners. Years pass before she crosses paths with Stone again. As the web of deceit that has come between them unravels, their love begins to grow. But can Stone turn a blind eye to Kella’s violent revolution and see the justice of her cause? Or will their differences prove too great to overcome?
What price would you pay to break the chains of oppression?

Gracen is a hopeless daydreamer masquerading as a “normal” person in southern society. When not writing, she’s a full-time basketball/football/guitar mom for her two sons and a devoted wife to her real-life hero-husband. She’s addicted to writing, paranormal romance novels, movies, Alabama football and coffee…addictions are not necessarily in order of priority. She’s convinced coffee is nectar from the gods and blending coffee and writing together generates the perfect creative merger. Many of her creative worlds are spawned from coffee highs.

One of my favorites from this author. The unique world and political intrigue fascinated me and drew me into the story until I was hooked. The world building was incredible and definitely my favorite part of the story. This is a Dystopian novel done right. It shows the reader just how messed up of a world these characters are living in. Lie to Me is not for the faint of heart. The story is intense and dark, gritty and sexy. Nothing is sugar coated, which is refreshing. I enjoyed seeing the darker aspects of the book in full glory versus being glossed over; I like that Gracen often pushes those boundaries in order to make the story real. 

Though the story deals with the heavy topics of segregation, sexual slavery, and violence, the book never feels overdone or weighed down. That is the mark of a great storyteller. Gracen balances all the bad with good writing, badass characters, and a thrilling plot. She writes with a wonderful fluidity that never allows for a dull moment. 

The characters are written in such a believable way. They feel like real people. I love how passionate and dedicated they are; it really comes through in the writing. Kella and Stone's story is tragic, yet hopeful. Lie to Me is a New Adult novel, so it has just the right amount of steaminess to compliment everything else happening in the story. The pair had a sizzling chemistry that built up over time instead of happening automatically. The build up is well worth the wait!

Lie to Me was a great adventure, one I recommend to anyone looking for a Dystopian with a bit of darkness and spice.  I would love to see more in this world. I think it would be interesting to see things changing in the other Quads.

Possessed by a Dark Warrior by Felicity Heaton
A powerful warrior and commander of the dark elf legions, Bleu is a loyal and devoted male, and one who has never failed in anything—except one thing. Love. When an elusive female dragon shifter surfaces in Hell again, giving him a mission to hurl himself into, he gladly returns to his hunt for her and the deadly blade she stole from his prince seven centuries ago, but as he closes in on his prey, fate reveals she is far more than his enemy.
Having escaped from the black market arena and her life as a slave, Taryn sets her sights back on the task she began seven hundred years ago when her brother stole a precious sword, but in the three centuries she’s been a captive, everything has changed. Corrupted by a craving for power, her brother has become dangerously obsessed with finding the blade and using it to claim the ultimate treasure—the position of King of Hell.
Faced with having to end her beloved twin to stop him from bringing all of Hell to its knees before him, will Taryn be strong enough to use the very blade he seeks against him? And when Bleu finally catches his elusive prey, will he listen to his head as it demands he complete his mission or his heart as it demands he claim his eternal mate?

He’s not the guy you date. He’s the one night stand.You’d think this man who sent hot looks my way, who called me succulent, would want to strip me bare and spread me out on his bed like every other woman in Chicago.
Except, he passed on my offer….
Just like I once passed on his.

He’s broken, like I am.
And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole.
So I try to distract myself with dating.

The more time Tahoe and I spend together, the more confused I feel.
I'm trying to open up to love.
But I'm quickly realizing that the only man I want is the stubborn, cocky, unattainable playboy Tahoe Roth.
The one my mother warned me about.
The one my body craves.
The only one who will surely break my heart.

Cursed in Stone Series and Cover Reveal by Lia Davis and Kerry Adrienne!

Cursed in Stone
By Kerry Adrienne and Lia Davis
Genre: Gothic romance
Tagline: Cursed by forbidden love, freed by eternal light 

Cursed in Stone, a Gothic Romance series from Lia Davis and Kerry AdrienneConstantine De La Fontaine fought in the Third Crusade, certain he was on the side of the righteous. After being wounded in battle, he’s tended to by the beautiful and mysterious Amara, a woman who’s hiding a dangerous secret. She’s the caliph’s daughter, and he’s promised her hand in marriage to the demon who’s made him powerful. Con and Amara’s love is white hot, but forbidden. When the demon finds out about their tryst, he lashes out in a jealous rage, cursing both to live out eternity in their own personal hells.

Able to take human form only during the three nights of the full moon, he wanders the streets of the cities the curse transports him to, lost and broken hearted. Then, a whisper on the wind and a magical pull to a gemstone gives him new hope for breaking his curse and finding out what’s happened to his lost love. A cloaked figure, an ancient tome, and more gemstones slowly begin to help him unravel the mystery of his curse—and possibly his freedom.
