Blurb

After tragedy rocks the small town of Danville Creek, best friends Emma Blake and Branch McKenna are ripped from the only homes they’ve ever known.

Twenty years later, they are called back to… Rosey Plantation.
A getaway shared by their parents and... the place they were all found dead.

As they get the house ready to sell, they uncover clues to a game—a handcuff key in a trinket box, eye bolts anchored into the basement wall, silk bindings in unusual places—and discover it wasn’t a retreat but a place to play.

While Emma and Branch find solace in one another, and explore some of their own dark fantasies, mysterious things start happening. Convinced they need to play the erotic game, or end up like their parents, their lives start to unravel.

Some say ghosts can haunt, but when the danger becomes real, they find themselves racing against the clock to find the killer among friends before history repeats itself.

Are you ready to play, Ring around the Rosey?

They all fall down.

Anthony Dwayne

Anthony started writing years ago as a hobby, but it quickly turned into a passion. He first began publishing under the name, Kane Caldwell, but has since changed the name he will continue publishing under. He is the epitome of a country boy with jeans, t-shirt, hat (No, not a cowboy hat. Lol), scruffy face, work boots on, driving his truck and definitely not a guy you'd picture writing romance. Anthony works in the construction business where he runs his own crew. He has two awesome boys, and an amazing woman that keeps him on the edge. He drinks way too much coffee and probably curses in one day what others curse in their lifetime. Lol! Anthony resides in the south where the weather is warm but most times sweltering hot. During down time, he loves to be surrounded by family, friends, great food, or engrossed in a good book. And of course, putting his imagination to work, where reality and fantasy collide.

Author: Maria La Serra
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 24, 2019



Blurb

What do a hotshot lawyer and a moonlighting beauty have in common? Not much, but when they have to put their differences aside for a good cause, anything can happen. Maybe even love.

Victoria Fairfax wasn’t looking for love. Instead, she was hoping to earn enough money to start her own catering business by working nights as a bartender for charity events. However, love might have been looking for her when Jack Turner, a handsome guest, comes to her rescue after a man harasses her on the job. 

Jack seems like the perfect guy—a successful young lawyer at one of the biggest law firms in the city with charm to spare. The only problem is, Victoria’s deep-seated hatred for lawyers. Despite her growing feelings for Jack, she can’t bear to get too close to him in case he turns out to be just as rotten as the lawyers from her past. As Jack falls more and more for Victoria, he realizes that his relationship is more complicated than he could have ever imagined, and he faces a difficult choice—to choose between the well-being of one of his clients or his growing feelings for Victoria. 

Will they unravel the tangled web of their past and present and heal after a lifetime of pain? Or allow their past to keep them apart?

Review: The Beginning of Always

The Beginning of Always The Beginning of Always by Karen Janowsky
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The Beginning of Always is the final book in Karen Janowsky’s The Persistence of Memory series, and it was an enjoyable ending to the series. Although it was enjoyable, I’m going to be honest and say I wanted more from this one. However, this is a reflection of my expectations and feelings towards the series, and I’m sure there are many people who will be satisfied with the ending.

From the start of the series, the thing that grabbed me the most about The Persistence of Memory was the superhero and mythology element of the series. I love such stories, and it was always these aspects that grabbed me the most. Although I enjoy a good romance, the romance in this one never really grabbed me. I was never as invested in the relationship between the leads as I had expected to be, meaning the parts of the series focused upon the romance did not grab me as much as the action.

With The Beginning of Always, the story focuses mostly upon the romance. There is a bit of action, but for me it wasn’t enough. I liked seeing the way things came together, I really enjoyed some of the details that came to light, but it felt like it happened much to quickly. It made up a very small amount of the stories, and I wanted more from it. The rest was focused upon the romance, and things felt too clinical for me to be truly invested.

Overall, The Beginning of Always was an enjoyable end to the series, even though it wasn’t quite what I had expected. Those invested in the romance in this series are sure to have a lot of fun with all the things that play out in this one.

Review: Have You Seen Luis Velez?

Have You Seen Luis Velez? Have You Seen Luis Velez? by Catherine Ryan Hyde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Have You Seen Luis Velez? surprised me in the best of ways. I was interested by the idea of the story but did not imagine myself becoming as invested in it as I did. Add in the fact I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump and have not been wowed for a while, and this one gripped me good.

Have You Seen Luis Velez? sucked me in from the very first page. I found myself hooked and powered through the book in a single sitting as I needed to see how everything came together. There were plenty of aspects introduced throughout, and each time something new came up I found myself sucked in ever deeper. It dealt with much more than I’d expected, pulled out more emotions than I’d imagined, and I could not get enough of this book.

It’s a simply written story, but the messages within are not simple. It makes you look at yourself and the world around you, it makes you stop to consider the way in which we’re all connected, and it leaves you more aware of the world upon finishing. It’s an easy story to read, but it has a big impact.

Without a doubt, Have You Seen Luis Velez? is well worth the read.

Review: Choose Me

Choose Me Choose Me by R.C. Boldt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

R.C. Boldt has a way of sucking you into her work and Choose Me is a perfect example of how her stories grip you from the start to the end. Without a doubt, Choose Me is another fabulous read from R.C. Boldt.

From the very first page, I was sucked into this story. As soon as I started reading, I found I could not put the book down. I was lost, gone, hooked, and the rest of the world ceased to exist. I had to devour the story, and I did so in no time at all. I was in love with the characters and events, desperate to see how everything came together, and happily lost myself to all that played out.

It’s a story filled with plenty, one that hooks you on multiple levels. The friendship and the love, the drama and the unknowns, the questions and the answers; even when things play out the way you expect them to, you find yourself in love with reading the specifics and finally seeing how the characters response.

It’s a beautiful story in the way only R.C. Boldt can make a story beautiful, and I cannot recommend this one enough. I loved it, I was touched by it, and I’ll be thinking about this one for a long time to come.

Without a doubt, R.C. Boldt has given us another winner.
