Sabotage by Dale Wiley

SABOTAGE RELEASE BLITZ

***

Sabotage-Wiley-ebookCover

Every hour, explosions rock the United States—without warning of where they will occur.

Big cities. Small towns. Rural back roads.

Sinister messages appear on computer screens across America, and the message is clear.

No one is safe…

- Not disgraced FBI agent Grant, awaiting his call back to the big time;
– Not rapper Pal Joey, an international sensation;
– Not savvy beauty Caitlin, the ultimate “Sin City” party girl;
– Not even Naseem, the would-be martyr who helped plan the attacks.

As an unhinged mastermind paralyzes the country, all roads lead to Las Vegas, where unlikely heroes must put aside their differences and forge an alliance to stop the attacks before the passing hours bring down a Nation.

Can four people, united only by their hatred of a common enemy, stop …

Sabotage?

Sabotage takes you from many different vantage points through a series of domestic terror attacks. It moves fast, and was very fun to write. It has been very satisfying to turn it over to a small number of readers and gauge their response.

I have always loved the Beastie Boys, and, of course, who doesn’t love their song “Sabotage”? I had a trailer for a movie using that soundtrack in my head, but the story had never come together. One day, while boating on Lake of the Ozarks, I started seeing a story. It didn’t necessarily match up with the Sabotage trailer yet, but I eventually thought about using the new story along with what I had already written.

Sabotage is very different than my first novel, The Intern. There are some funny characters, but it’s not written for laughs in the way that book was. I also hope the reader enjoys the multiple points of view, male and female, and this obviously gives it a very different feel from my other book.

MOONSHOT_2x6_bookmark-BACK.jpg

Synopsis:

Moonshot_FrontCover_Final_LoRes

Baseball isn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…

The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase … he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil.

I tried to stay away. I couldn’t.

Then, the team started losing.

Women started dying.

And everything in my world broke apart.

CRUSH AMAZONThe danger isn’t over.

It’s only just begun.

Circumstances brought them together and their undeniable connection won’t let them part. But when the past and the present collide, emotions run high—things are said, lines are crossed, and rules are broken. Both focused on crushing the enemy, the retribution is almost too much to bear. Still, there’s no undoing what has already been done, and every action has a consequence.

He loves her and she loves him, but love isn’t a shield.

Sometimes your only choice is the one you’d rather not make. Pushed to the limit, the tainted love of Logan and Elle is in jeopardy. With outside forces driving a wedge between them, they have to dig deep within their souls to release the ghosts of their pasts, and fight even harder for what neither knew they needed—each other.

Can love really conquer all?

Owned (Book One in The Decadence After Dark Series)

“I like you collared, baby. I like you naked, I like you mine.”

Ellie Stevens has lusted over Kayne Roberts since he first walked into the import/export company she works for a little over a year ago. As Expo’s most important client, Ellie has always kept a safe distance from the man with the majestic blue eyes – until temptation finally gets the better of her. Impulsively, Ellie invites Kayne to one of Expo’s infamous company parties her flamboyant boss is notorious for throwing. Unbeknownst to Ellie, the god in the Armani suit isn’t just the suave entrepreneur he portrays himself to be. Underneath the professional exterior is a man with a secret life, dark desires, and nefarious contacts.

In a hidden corner of a trendy New York City lounge, the spark kindling between the two of them ignites. Unable to resist the sinful attraction, Ellie agrees to leave with Kayne, believing she is finally bedding the man of her dreams. Little does she know when she walks out the door, she’s about to be Owned.

Claimed (Book Two in the Decadence After Dark Series)

With one look he consumed me.
With one touch he marked me.
With one kiss he owned me.
With one whisper he claimed me.

“No matter where you go or who you’re with, you’ll always be mine.”

Ellie Stevens thought she had moved on from the domineering man who abducted her. Now living in Hawaii and following her dreams, no one is going to keep her down. But things aren’t always as they seem.

About the Author
K.D. Carrillo
I’m super normal.
I’m a single mom to one. Which is plenty, because my son is a genius.  How many mothers have to tell their children to turn off the documentary about Einstein so they can sleep?

I suppose it was inevitable.  My brand of rebelling in college was to minor in French when my advisor told me not to take it.  

I’m a teacher by day, and wonder woman by night.  Okay, not really,  But how cool would that be?

I like long walks on the beach, and running in slow motion.  Oops,  wrong profile.

Seriously,  did I mention I’m kind of a nerd? That’s in now, isn’t it?

I live books.  Love isn’t a strong enough word.  I think my first crush was on a Hardy Boy.  Now I’ve moved on to rock stars and tattooed bad boys, as long as they’re fictional.  

Talking about myself is weird, because I’m just me.  So anything else you want to know hit up my author page on Facebook.

Dismantled by Yara Greathouse – My Review

Title: Dismantled
Series: Girls On Top Series
Author: Yara Greathouse
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 18, 2015
Cover Design: Rebecca Berto of Berto Designs
Photography: Erin Dawn Photography
What happens when a stranger takes everything from you in the blink of an eye? When your life goes from perfection to hell and you aren’t sure if you want to climb out of the hole you’re in or dig down deeper?
Events from Traxx Maxwell’s past prevent him from getting into serious relationships and he likes it that way. One unexpected day, hell breaks loose. “The Incident” happens. Traxx is forced to watch something that no one should ever see. He starts to fall into a person that no one recognizes. There is darkness moving within him – he is broken inside.
While she’s waiting for Traxx to quit his slutty ways and really notice her, Ciara Collins is dating other guys and having fun. One unexpected day “The Incident” takes over Traxx’s life. While he tries to push everyone away, Ciara refuses to retreat. Can she help him put his fractured life back together or will he have to remain this shattered shell, completely dismantled?
And just when life seems somewhat bearable, the creepers who have been quietly observing and enjoying Traxx’s suffering, have decided to take everything away from him – once and for all.
This is a story about how the unexpected can make someone’s life fall into pieces, and how unconditional love and friendship can help those who are dismantled become whole again.

 

 

Dismantled (Girls on Top Series, Book 2)
TRAXX & CIARA: LET OTHERS LOVE YOU, YOU ARE WORTH IT

This is one of those books that once you start reading, you want to continue until the end. This is Traxx and Ciara’s story; told in each of their POV’s.

Traxx has issues and as such he moves from woman to woman – “Sex and satisfaction were the ultimate goal.”

“There may be – possibly – only one exception. There’s this girl I have some…feelings for. Her name is Ciara Collins. I have known her for over two years. She is absolutely off limits. She is also absolutely fucking perfect.”

Ciara is a strong, independent, yet loving woman – “I’m just patiently waiting for him to be ready to find something other than a quick fuck. I’m in no rush. I know the real Traxx. The one he only lets me see when no one else is around.”

“The very first time I saw him, I knew deep in my heart he was pure, undiluted trouble. Did it matter? No. There was nothing I could do. The word attraction is defined as “the electric or magnetic force that acts between opposite charged bodies, tending to draw them together.” That’s exactly how I feel about Traxx Maxwell, and I’m almost certain that he feels the same way about me.”

An “incident” happens and it changes Traxx in a very deep and dangerous level. But, he has a tight and great group of friends that love and support him unconditionally. They are also very protective. Ciara is one of those friends and her mission is to BTB (“Bring Back Traxx”). After the “incident” they all rally to help Traxx come out of his troubled feelings and his nightmares. True loyalty. BTB gives Traxx and Ciara a chance to connect one on one and have their feelings come to surface. Of course, it’s not an easy task; throughout the story there is mystery and suspense lurking. Yara Greathouse weaves the suspense into the story and it kept me wondering…what or who it could be. It kept me on the edge of my seat.

This story has it all. Tragedy, hot steamy scenes, (oh the shower scene-my lips are sealed!!), funny scenes (brotherly rivalry), danger and suspense. It is a story about trust, loyalty, honesty and learning to live in the moment; taking chances and facing your fears. It is a beautiful story. Read it! You will love it!

I was provided with an Advance Reading Copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

View all my reviews

 

I’m still waiting for him to say something…
anything. So many emotions cross his face in a matter of seconds. Happy.
Confused. Sadness. I don’t know what to say. Perhaps I need to say nothing at
all. In the stillness, our eyes do all the silent talking. Our chests move with
heavy breathing and desire pours out through our pores. It’s unmistakable. The
question is what are we going to do about it? The seconds feel like hours while
we weigh each other’s options.
Finally, Traxx man-ups the situation, and he slowly
takes a couple of steps until he invades all my senses. So close that I can
feel his body heat, and the clean scent of his cologne becomes a part of the
air I breathe. I look at him, my high heeled shoes giving me a closer look to
his masculine face. His jaw is tense. His eyes intense. It’s a lot more than I
can take. He’s everywhere and nowhere all at once. I want to grab a hold of
him, and I want to turn around and walk away. Too many feelings…too much. I
want it all. With shaky fingers I place a hand on his chest. I’m unsure if I
should push or pull, so I leave it still instead. He is rock solid and soft at
the same time, if that’s even possible. His heat burns my hand, but I won’t
move it. It’s the best burn I’ve ever had.
The heat moves through that hand and comes into me
– inside of me, moving throughout my body and filling in my empty heart. One of
his hands comes up to cover the one I have on his chest, and as I turn my head
to look at the Traxx sandwich my hand’s caught in between, his other hand lifts
up, and grabs my hair, moving it behind my shoulder. His hand caresses my
shoulder, then my collarbone, never leaving my skin, until it finally wraps
around the side of my neck and with his thumb, he gently rubs the outline of my
jaw. Back and forth. And again – back and forth. It’s a beautiful feeling. It’s
excruciating. I catch myself looking into his eyes and then my eyes move so I
can stare at his lips.
“Ciara, you are breathtakingly beautiful.”
I realize I can’t talk and then something similar
to a whimper escapes my lips. I recover quickly by clearing my throat and
whispering, “Thank you.” The time lingers on. I wish I could pull him inside my
place and into my room. Keep him there, allowing myself to be selfish. There
are so many things I want to do to this man that even eternity wouldn’t be
enough time. I also need to try and decipher these feelings I have for him. To
show him someone cares and that he is worth it. His eyes say so much and
nothing at all.
Raising my chin with his fingers, Traxx whispers,
“It’s time to go.”
“Is it really… time?”
“Yes, it is. We may have to finish… this… another
day. Don’t you think?”
“Agreed. We really have to work on…this.”
He kisses the top of my hand and steps away from
me, back into the receiving hall, waiting for me to lock the door. I turn
around and he smiles and extends his hand towards me. I hold on to it and
follow him to the truck. The thought occurs to me that I would follow this man
anywhere he needed me.
