Release Day Review | HARD TO LET GO (Hard Ink #4) by Laura Kaye

Beckett Murda hates to dwell on the past. But his investigation into the ambush that killed half his Special Forces team and ended his Army career gives him little choice. Just when his team learns how powerful their enemies are, hard-ass Beckett encounters his biggest complication yet—a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey.

A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo shop following a bad break-up—and finds herself staring down the barrel of a stranger’s gun. Beckett is hard-bodied and sexy as hell, but he’s also the most infuriating man ever. Worse, Kat’s brothers are at war with the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights . . . and in his arms. Not to mention their enemies’ crosshairs.

Now Beckett and Kat must set aside their differences to work together, because the only thing sweeter than justice is finding love and never letting go.

Blog Tour Review | Taking Heart (Healing Harts #2) by T.J. Kline

T. J. Kline's Healing Harts series continues as a soldier suffering from PTSD and a therapy dog trainer find that some scars can only be healed by love...

Julia Hart knows how much good she does training therapy dogs—it's what helped her overcome her own trials after a relationship turned unexpectedly violent. But moving beyond her mistakes meant trusting only her family with her heart.

Dylan, a former soldier, has run out of hope for recovery. Plagued by nightmares and flashbacks, he doubts anything will help him overcome his PTSD. When his brother convinces him to try one last time, he agrees to get a therapy dog.

Dylan didn't expect to find Julia or a chance for a "normal" future again. But when Julia's attacker is released from prison, Dylan and Julia will have to face the past together.

The Beginner's Contour Kit

It seems like everyone and their mother is raving about the wondrous effects of contouring. Though it's not magic, when applied correctly, the shadows and highlights created by contouring can slim your face and enhance your features. I've been contouring (the non Kim K way) since college using the good ol' 3-shape technique with a bit of Nars Laguna, and have since graduated to a cooler-toned taupe contouring powder (Nyx Powder Blush in Taupe) and a touch of whichever bronzer I'm loving at the moment. There's currently an abundance of contouring kits on the market in powder, cream and liquid formulas so I did a bit of research, sifted through the offerings, and I think I've found the perfect contour palette.

Review & Giveaway | SINFUL REWARDS 12 by Cynthia Sax

The thrilling conclusion to the Billionaires and Bikers series!

One tiny mistake turns Bee Carter's worst fears into a terrifying reality. She knows she isn't alone. The sexy, honorable man she adores stands by her side, willing to sacrifice his freedom to ease her concerns.
But she yearns for more than he is offering. She wants a partner who will love her as fiercely as she loves him, who will say the words and mean them, and someone who will choose her because this is what he desires more than anything else, not merely out of a misguided sense of duty.
Will saying no to the man she loves earn Bee unbearable heartache or will she finally get the forever she craves?

Monthly Beauty Favorites | May 2015

It's that time again when I like to give you all a round-up of what products I've been loving in the past month. May was a particularly rough month beauty-wise, so there was definitely a lot more trial and error than I normally go through. This month was all about hydrating my skin and finding no-fuss pastel makeup to perk up my complexion for the Spring. Here's what I was loving:

Two New Eye Products From CoverGirl

I've never been the biggest fan of CoverGirl cosmetics. I don't know if it's the packaging or their perky, girl-next-door image, but they were never really a brand that I gravitated towards while perusing the drugstore makeup aisle. In recent years I've stumbled across some amazing base products from themtheir Stay Fabulous Foundation is one of my must-havesbut I've yet to delve into their eye products. I've heard so many people rave about their mascaras, so when Influenster offered to send me CoverGirl's new The Super Sizer Mascara and their Intensify Me! Liquid Liner to test out I was really excited!
