Mason by Lisa Helen Gray Release Blitz

We are excited to be part of the Release Blitz for book 2 in the Carter Brothers Series by Lisa Helen Gray, MASON

I’m Denny Smith.
I moved away to my Nan’s house after my parents happily kicked me out.
Why, you ask? Because I ruined my future, so they say.

If you ask me, I was a naive seventeen year-old girl who chose to sleep with the boy she had loved from afar for years, only for him to want nothing to do with me in return.

So here I am, back at the one place I had hoped to never return, where I’ll attend court as a witness.

Now I have to face him...Mason.

There’s no other way around it.

He can’t know my secret...but he will.

When I returned, I expected him to have moved on with at least a million and one other girls, to have forgotten the naive school girl with a crush that followed him around like a lost puppy, but I was wrong.

What I got when I arrived was five brothers, a Granddad, a pushy Grandma, and a best friend who would stop at nothing to make me stay.

But only one of them has the power to make me stay...Mason.

After everything, can I truly trust him again or will he continue to break my heart?

If you mess with one Carter brother, you mess with them all

Kim's Review

This is the 2nd book in the Carter Brothers Series and should be read in order.

Denny Smith’s one night with Mason couldn’t have gone worse. Things between the two of them have changed and now Denny is keeping a secret not only from Mason but all her friends too.  The thing about secrets are they never stay that way.  When Denny’s secret finally comes out will it bring Mason and back together or will it tear them further apart?

I was given this in exchange for an honest review.

Denny is used to being none existent to her parents and only can rely on her brother and best friend Harlow.  She’s had to become independent and strong to deal with how her mother treats her.  Having her Nan, Harlow, Harlow’s Grandma and the Carter Brothers around kept her from feeling lonely.  Denny is a girl who goes after what she wants and she's wanted Mason for years, so when she got the chance to have just one night with him she didn’t have to think twice.  She’ll remember that night and his reaction for the rest of her life.

Mason had a hard childhood.  His drug addicted mother took off leaving his alcoholic father to raise him and his four other brothers.  Things got better when they went to live with their granddad but what happen to him when he lived with his father has long lasting affect that has him running scared when Denny takes root in his life.  Mason wants her but feeling like he’s not good for her he does what he thinks is best and pushes her away.

Lisa started this series with a bang when we got to meet all the Carter Brother’s in Malik and Harlow’s story but if you think you know what’s life was life for any of them you’re sadly mistake.  Mason is one of the guys you know is a player but there is just something about him you can help but want.  Denny fell for his charms but more than that she fell for the man.  The attraction between these two is one that no one can resist.  They both know they want each other but they are hiding their feelings from each.  Every time Denny is around Mason goes on the defensive and you just want to reach into the book and slap him upside the head.  Denny is equally frustrating by keeping a secret that will come out and end up hurting both of them even more.  The push/pull between these two is what draws you in cause you want them to get together but at the same time you think both of them need to smarten up and see what’s in front of them.  Lisa sweeten the story by having a visit from a couple of character from the Forgotten Series.  How they interact with Denny and Mason has to be my favorite part aside from the ending which I can’t give away.
Each time Lisa releases a new book it becomes my new favourite.  With the Carter Brother Series each  book gives us a little more insight into the abuse they suffered in childhood, as well as how each character lives can change for the better.  Lisa has created an amazing group of character that you can't help but become emotionally invested in, and wishing you could be part of there family. I can truly say that Lisa Helen Gray never disappoints me and she’s an awesome author! I’m impatiently wait for Myles to come out now!

Lisa Helen Gray (1987) born in Birmingham. All Lisa has ever wanted to do in life, apart from be a mother, is to read and write, and at a certain age she wanted to be a princess.We can all dream, right?

Serious note though, she has been a passionate reader ever since her Nan first handed her The Three Gollywogs by Enid Blyton. After that, she lived in a land of fantasy. 
First came Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then Angel, and it went on to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that there is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels.
She got into reviewing other author’s novels, and then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If I could I'd wish it all away (2014). 

She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn't got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty Little Liars, walking dead, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and of course, Veronica Mars. Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books

Buccaneer Beauty by Viola Russell Blitz


Buccaneer Beauty is the story of Grace, Grainne, O’Malley, the beautiful daughter of a powerful Irish chieftain and a conventional mother.  At the age of eleven, Grainne cuts her hair and sneaks aboard her father’s galley ship, determined to follow a life at sea and to seek the company of a handsome Scottish gallowglass, Bruce Donnel.  Grainne proves herself a budding warrior when Spanish marauders invade her father’s vessel, but her parents have other plans for her.  Though she proves an able sailor, Grainne is forced to marry Donal O’Flaherty, another powerful chieftain. Though enamored of Bruce Donnel, she nonetheless obeys her parents and proves an able helpmate to her violent and rash husband, continuing her own adventures at sea while raising children and supervising her husband’s home.  Her heart, however, still belongs to a handsome Scot who she can never have. 
Upon Donal’s death by ambush, Grainne continues her adventures along the Irish coast and Europe, secretly battling England’s growing power in her country.  Alternately sleeping with the devil or manipulating the British authorities to her own ends, Grainne is determined to save her family and people from the tyranny imposed upon them by England. To make her family stronger, she weds Richard Bourke, one of the most powerful men in the region, but she can never forget Bruce Donnel and the passion he incited within her soul.  Richard proves Grainne’s most stalwart supporter and she his, their minds and bodies uniting in an almost mystical union. Together, they faced the English with no fear—with only audacity and boundless courage.  Still, the shadow of a youthful gallowglass intrudes on Grainne’s peace.   


Viola Russell is the pen name for Susan Weaver Eble.  A teacher by day, Viola Russell pens her novels at night and on holidays. She adopted a pseudonym (her grandmother’s name) so that her students would not find her, but they, ever tech savvy, discovered her identity. She lives in New Orleans with her amazing husband Ben and sweet dog.

The Ascension of Laney by Kris Hack - Release Tour

Author: Kris Hack
Cover Design: Regina Wamba, Mae I Design
Release Date:  August 20, 2015


I loved him at fifteen. I thought we’d stand the test of time. He was my forever but maybe I fell too fast or loved him too much. Maybe I came on too strong or maybe I did something wrong. He still left. Turned his back on me without a word. I never thought I’d see him again and to be honest, I didn’t want to. I began to hate him even though he would never know it. But then, I did see him again and with him came the secrets that would forever change all of our lives. 

She was only a recurring dream in my foggy subconscious. A voice. A face. We weren’t supposed to dream. We weren’t supposed to remember. They said it was impossible and the before would never come into the now. None of the others remember, at least not that I know of. What I do know is that she was my everything, my every waking breath. Now that I’ve found her I will not be losing her a second time. She will be mine again, no matter what the cost.



Kris Hack lives in Texas with her husband and their two furbabies. As an adult she became an avid reader and always seemed to have her own story to tell.  Finally, she took the leap and wrote, and wrote, and wrote, until she laid her heart and soul into writing and told her story. The Ascension of Laney will be her first published work and she plans to publish many more in the future.

“If something happens to me, promise you’ll look after her.”

Luck’s driving so he only glances at me for a second. “Why you thinkin’ like that, Dante?”
“Nothing. This whole fuckin’ mess is making me realize I should make sure she’s better taken care of. He told her I sent him to pick her up because the club was on lockdown and he was takin’ her to our safe house.”
“Don’t be so hard on yourself. You haven’t been together that long. She’s young. It’s not a stretch that you wouldn’t have shared everything with her.”
“No. But he used that against her. Someone else could.” I stare straight ahead. “I told her she can trust you. I’d send you. Explained we ain’t got a safe house.”
“But beyond that. We all know the risks. You seem to understand…know her needs. So if something happens to me, I want you to make sure she’s okay.”
Luck doesn’t seem to know what to say to that. 
I think of how to explain it better. “I don’t want someone like Romeo gettin’ his hands on her.”
“Yeah. I hear what you’re saying. Of course. But can we not talk about something happening to you. It’s bad luck.”
I can’t help laughing at that. “I ain’t sayin’ ‘fuck my girlfriend,’ bro. Just—”
“Yeah, I got it,” he says with a snicker.
“I’d want you in my role too. But Romeo already knows that.”
Feelings time over, I relax into the seat and plan how I’m going to murder Hemi when I find his disloyal ass.
I want more answers from her, but I think she’s done. She yawns and I pull her against me, reassuring her that she’s okay. Hell, reassuring myself.
