Shea Berkley started out writing nonfiction (not so fun) and quickly moved into fiction (totally fun), and knew she'd found her calling. (Her family was thrilled she'd found friends to play with even if they weren't technically real.) She's still pleasantly surprised people are willing to pay to read her stories. Besides writing, her many diversions include kickboxing, reading awesome books and hanging out with her loud and rambunctious family. With five kids (all girls), her biggest job is to make sure the little darlings don't harass the neighbors and then play dumb when the cops come knocking on her door.

Just Couldn't Put Down Giveaway Hop!

Hey all, welcome to our stop on the Just Couldn't Put it Down Giveaway Hop! Thank you to Stuck in Books for hosting.

Books you couldn't put down, I bet we've all had quite a few of those. I know I have.

I'm going to share with you just a few....

This whole series is one I couldn't put down. Each book brought more and more laughter, excitement and twists, you can't help but be sucked right in.

Here's the blurb from book 1, First Grave on the Right.

 This whole grim reaper thing should have come with a manual.
Or a diagram of some kind.
A flow chart would have been nice.
Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. Meaning, she sees dead people. Really. And it's her job to convince them to "go into the light." But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (like murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she's been having about an entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely. But what does he want with Charley? And why can't she seem to resist him? And what does she have to lose by giving in?


This one is a little more... adult. ;-)

Another amazing book I couldn't put down.

 He was on a collision course.
… I had paved my way
He answered to no one.
… I respected authority
He wanted me.
… I despised him
He didn’t take no for an answer.
... NO!

When freelance photographer, Corinne Lee, is required to visually document the nationwide tour of Wild Nights Male Revue, she finds herself in a world of near-naked, testosterone-fuelled men on stage—not her photographic muse of choice. She also finds herself in the arms of Josh, the revue’s star performer.

Josh Adams thrives on the limelight, the stage and, most of all, the attention of women who endlessly throw themselves at him. He dances sex, speaks sex, breathes sex … is sex! Josh lives for sex, but never with the same woman.

When both opinionated and headstrong characters are closely thrust together in a lust-ridden and sexually-charged environment, which of the two will break first?
Will Josh realise that Corinne could be the exception to his ‘no strings’ rule? Or will Corinne let go of the fantasy of finding Mr One and Only?

You can check out my review of Revue HERE 


This one is an old fave of mine.

Hush, Hush 


Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.

Now for the giveaway. 

One winner will get their choice of any of the books I've shown above (with the series, winner can choose any book from that series, including Hush, Hush series.) OR a $20 Amazon gift card so they can buy their own Couldn't put down read.

To enter, just fill in the raffle form below.

 Giveaway is international

Good Luck!

Book Review - Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little

(Forbidden, #1)
By Kimberley Griffiths Little
Release Date - 4th November, 2014
Published by - HarperCollins

  In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden’s tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden’s turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe’s leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family’s position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden’s heart.

Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden’s heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb’s increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden’s every move, she knows she must find a way to escape—or die trying.

With a forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family’s survival on the line, Jayden must embark on a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself.

Set against the brilliant backdrop of the sprawling desert, the story of Jayden and Kadesh will leave readers absolutely breathless as they defy the odds and risk it all to be together.


My Rating:


My Review: 

I have to say, the first thing that got me was that cover, It's very alluring and leaves a promise to sweep you away in it's pages.

Forbidden is a beautifully written story, from the first page I was swept away to an ancient time of priestesses, tribal life & the harsh deserts of Mesopotamia. Oh and Dancing, I can't forget the dancing.
 Kimberley gives in-depth detail into the hot and ruthless desert, She shows the harsh reality of what it was like for the tribes living and travelling in it. But she also shows the beauty.

The characters were alluring and bold. I just loved Jayden, a young desert girl betrothed to her wicked cousin, Horeb. A man that she loaths beyond reason, but was still willing to marry to protect her family and help her tribe. I loved watching Jayden grow throughout the story. After losing so much she has to be the strength that holds her family together, family is everything to Jayden. 
When she meets Kadesh, things start to change for Jayden. Kadesh is handsome, kind and a smart young man, everything that Horeb was not. He made Jayden feel things she could only ever dream of.

Could Jayden ignore these feelings and still marry the beast, Or could she betray everything she knows and follow her heart. I know which way I'd go. ^_^

A unique and addictive storyline, twists and turns which will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat, Characters you'll fall in love with. Add a sprinkle of spine-tingling romance and you have the wonderful story that is Forbidden. What more could you ask for?! Forbidden is a must read for all the YA book lovers out there. ^_^


Before you go I wanted to share with you (only saw it myself yesterday) the cover for book 2, Banished.


It's simply stunning! I can't wait to continue Jayden's story. ^_^
