Tami's Review:
5 Hearts pounding Stars
Cat Mason had me at 1973 Plymouth Baracuda
 Convertible!!! Favorite car ever!! 
Very first Cat Mason book for me and i have yo say definitely NOT my last!! I love love loved it!  
Gravity has everything I love in a book, steamy scenes, great character development, and suspense to blow you friggen mind!!! NEVER SAW THAT HAPPENING..... was a continuous mantra while reading this book.
I enjoyed the banter between all of the secondary characters as well. There was so much happening, but it flowed flawlessly throughout the entire book. 
Luke.... Oh man i need a Luke in my life! He is the ultimate caretaker and loves his family and friends with an intensity that blew me away. 
Kionna, damaged dancer that is willing to hide behind a mask to fulfill her dream to be a dancer. She lives a quiet normal life until she meets her neighbor's hot as sin son Tattoo shop owner Luke. Someone isn't happy about the budding relationship and that is when things REALLY start to go nuts!! What a roller coaster. 

"We're all halves, searching our whole lives for that missing piece. You go through your entire life relying on other. They rely on you. Its the cycle of it all. You may not like it, but it's the truth."  Luke
"Out of pain can come beauty. It's about embracing all the parts of life;  the good and the bad."
"Sometimes, Kionna, you have to feel the pain. Succumb to the power of it, truly let it take over to really know that you're living" 
The words that came out of Luke's mouth were totally swoon worthy!! 
I can't wait to hear more about the Artistic Pricks Ink gang!!! Kudos to you Cat Mason for a phenomenal story and leaving me yearning for more!! 
This review is based on a complimentary copy gifted from the author for an honest review on behalf of Elaine and Tami's JB3' Blackbirds

Elaine's Review

I was blown away as always by how J.M. can pull you into a story and she sure did that with Lucy and Heath. She had me crying from the start of the book to the very end.    For Lucy, she says she hates him but deep down she really doesn't and for Heath, he has loved her since he was 18.
Now his dream has come true. Heath is hiding something from Lucy and he need to tell her before she finds out from someone else. He has the girl of his dreams but will it last and for how long? 
 Lucy and Heath have had their struggles throughout the whole book and now that they are married and Heath's brother O has been injured will Lucy and Heath's marriage survive before they kill each other or will LOVE conquer all? You will need to read the whole story to find out...

Body: A leap of marital proportions.

Des has had her share of heartbreak. To protect herself, she likes her men cheap, easy, and for one night. Meeting O awakens a hope inside her; a hope that maybe there is a happily ever after for her.

O is virile, handsome, a gentleman, and young; maybe too young. He’s also a patient and Des doesn’t date the patients; not anymore. Unable to deny the attraction, she asks O out, against her better judgment.

Des is keeping secrets, dangerous ones, and O is more than willing to fight for her, no matter the cost. Convincing her that he’s the one for her, no matter their age difference, Des and O decide to take a leap that will change their lives.

With an attraction so sudden and so strong there’s bound to be problems.

When the past comes back to destroy Des, will O be able to save her?
And will Des see the truth, that when love is involved, age is just a number?

Author Bio


I'm a stay-at-home mom with four young children and one extremely supportive husband. We've been married for over ten years and reside in Metro Detroit, Michigan.

I've dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams.

When I'm not running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my family, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I'm writing!

I love music and believe that books and music can't exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!

My name is Kaylie Flanders, and maybe you heard my story. I was held captive by a psychopath for a decade; six years ago, I escaped. Freedom, though, is harder than I thought it would be.

The only place I feel truly alive is inside the darkness of Club Shamballa. In the shadows of the club, I meet a masked stranger with piercing green eyes, a body chiseled to perfection, and a magic touch.

No voice.
No face.

I can’t see him, I can’t hear him—yet he touches me in ways no one else has before.

Who is Mask, and what is he hiding? Can we heal our broken pasts together?

Rockstar Series by Anne Mercier





Series: Rockstar
Author: Anne Mercier



#1 Falling Down

DISCLAIMER!

If you're unable to suspend disbelief and escape to the Rockstar Land of Fiction, then this book probably isn't for you.

As with all the Rockstar books, this book contains mature content and is inappropriate for persons under 18 years of age.

This story contains grief, loss, sadness, darkness, light, happiness, angst, swearing, explicit sex, graphic violence, new beginnings, and soulmates.

I recommend listening to the playlist whenever possible to get the full effect of the story. You may need tissues.


Jesse Kingston, lead singer for Falling Down, is a tall, dark, and gorgeous temptation I don’t want to resist.

I’m going to ignore all the warning signs and do what I normally wouldn’t—I’m going to indulge my fantasies and give this sexy rocker what he wants and something he won’t soon forget—me.

Will our time together end up changing this bad boy? Or will it end up changing me? 

***This is a stand-alone novel with a HEA. No cliffhanger***

#2 Blush

*WARNING* This is NOT a dark romance. There will be MINIMAL angst or drama. There will be lots of laughs, frequent dropping of the F-bomb, and crazy monkey sex. 

You know how people say they woke up in Vegas married and you're like, how the hell could that possibly happen? Who does that? Well, us apparently… and the press is having a field day.

Let's not even get started on the topic of my mother. Then there's my grandpa wanting to meet my new husband--that's not scary at all. On top of that, we're heading out on tour and I'm a nervous wreck--factor in the fact that Jesse's newly changed marital status doesn't seem to be an issue for the groupies. Nothing deters them. Not even the fact that I'm standing right there when they proposition him.

I can handle the press, my mom, and even my grandpa. But the women who are ruining my current mood of "happy", well, they've got another thing coming. It's time to put these women in their place because nobody messes with my happily ever after.

Sera

He’s my protector, my confidante. Then one night he became more. I want him, I need him, and, if I’m honest with myself, I love him. I just don’t know if he’ll ever see me as more than what we’ve always been: friends. I don’t want to lose him but it’s getting harder and harder to keep my feelings to myself. Should I risk it all or play it safe?

Cage 

She’s my light, my saving grace. The night we came together I knew I could never live without her. I want her to be mine: my lover, my friend. Maybe, if I can get her to see past all the reasons why we shouldn’t be together, she’ll be my forever. It just might be time to turn it up and go for broke.
