WALLBANGER (Cocktail #1) by Alice Clayton

AUTHOR: Alice Clayton
GENRE: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
RELEASE DATE: 11/27/2012

The first night after Caroline moves into her fantastic new San Francisco apartment, she realizes she's gaining an intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy's athletic prowess, she can hear not just his bed banging against the wall but the ecstatic response of what seems (as loud night after loud night goes by) like an endless parade of women. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed dating hiatus, and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. The tension between them is as thick as the walls are thin, and the results just as mixed. Suddenly, Caroline is finding she may have discovered a whole new definition of neighborly...

In a delicious mix of silly and steamy, Alice Clayton dishes out a hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight...

After a long day of moving into a new apartment, Caroline is seeking peace and quiet and is ready to venture off to dreamland. However peace and quiet are nowhere within her grasp. Only moans, groans, quakes and vibrations of mind blowing sex. Sounds great, right? The only problem for Caroline is that this is happening on the other side of her bedroom wall. Night after night, Caroline is greeted with the sounds of spanking, obnoxious laughter, meowing and of course, wall banging. When Caroline finally decides to confront her neighbor, who she and her friends have nicknamed "Wallbanger", tensions flare. These two then find out how small the world really is when they both discover that they have good friends in common. After a few snarky exchanges, these neighbors develop a friendship over movies and zuchini bread. However tensions do flare. Only this time it's sexual tension. 
"Wallbanger" is hilarious! There were parts of this book that caused me to laugh out loud, for instance Simon's and his wall banging that caused pictures to fall off the wall and Carolina's nickname for his loud lovers. Even with all of the laughter and the comedy, "Wallbanger" is a romance novel and a very good one. You will love the story of Simon and Caroline, on their road from noisy neighbors to enemies to friends to lovers. "Wallbanger is MUST READ!"

REVIEW: "Mentality" by Ceet The Author

TITLE: Mentality
AUTHOR: Ceet The Author
GENRE: Street Lit/Urban Fiction
RELEASE DATE: 12/08/2011

** I received a copy of “Mentality”, from the author, in exchange for a fair and honest review.**

Mentality: The characteristic attitude of mind or way of thinking of a person or group.

There is much that can be determined about a person once their MENTALITY is discovered, and many believe that the way a person thinks influences their actions more than any other factor. For those things to be true, it would also mean that a person's MENTALITY would make their actions as predictable and easily read as an open book.

For David Horsham, Kyree Singh, and Natalie Porter, reading people's MENTALITY is more than a hobby, its a way of life. All three pride themselves on having the skills to predict other's movements, and all three use those skills to manipulate outcomes in their favor. They are slick and cunning, the best at what they do. But when all three paths cross one another, there can only be one left standing in the end. When MONEY, POWER, GREED, and REVENGE are involved, the battle becomes much more than a competition, its a matter of life and death. They are all used to being in control, but what happens when the roles are reversed?

In the fourth book from South Philly writer Ceet The Author, complex characters, intertwining storylines, and jaw-dropping twist and turns propel the story forward and keep the pages turning. MENTALITY is a detailed account about what happens when the powerful become the powerless, and the predators become the prey.

I received a copy of “Mentality”, from the author, in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Mentality, according to an online dictionary, is defined as a “habitual or characteristic mental attitude that determine how you will interpret and respond to situations.” This book follows three main characters’ (Kyree, Natalie, and Lidia) lives and gives an amazing account of how each character is either motivated or affected by money, wealth, power, and lust, how each of the things shape their mindsets or ”Mentality”, and the consequences, loves, and losses that these characters suffer as a result. “Mentality” follows three characters whose lives, and storylines intertwine into one book of betrayal and revenge.
Initially, after reading the first few chapters of this book, I thought that the book was leaning toward being about cheating from a man’s perspective, and that the title “MENtality” was a clever play on words. Because, the author is a man, writing about men, it did give a little insight as to how some men think and feel, especially toward women and relationships. 
As I read more of the book, a juicy storyline, was forming between Natalie, the mistress, Dave, the cheater, and his attention starved, neglected wife Lidia. Since, the book starts two years later with the character Kyree, I wanted to know how their lives intermingled with his. All I will say, for the sake of not giving anything away, is that the ending of this book will floor the readers. 
I enjoyed reading “Mentality”. It was very suspenseful and dramatic with enough erotica. It is just a good story, however I wish that the author wrote more detail in the story about how the revenge took place. All in all, I would definitely and have already recommend this book to others. I also feel that this story would make an amazing screenplay.

Ceet The Author is a writer/filmmaker from South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He began writing as early as age nine as a way to escape the harshness of his environment and he quickly found the craft both liberating and therapeutic. In 2009, Ceet took one of the many stories he’d crafted over the years and turned it into his debuted release, the instant hood classic “The Whore and The Virgin”. The positive feedback and support inspired him to then release his second effort “A Dog’s Day” later that same year. 

While still searching to find his voice as a writer, Ceet began working on another passion of his, filmmaking and videography. In 2010 he wrote, produced, and directed “The Wrong Few Brothas”, a mini movie/music video starring City Council and Jay Stars. After this project Ceet went on to produce and direct a wide number of independent film projects, including the documentary “The Dead End Movement”, “The BARZ freestyle series”, and the “Dead End Cyphers”. Ceet has also directed numerous music videos for artist in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, including the hottest video in the city in 2012, “The South Philly Anthem”. 

In 2012 Ceet returned his focus to writing and released his third novel, “Last Chance”. He also founded his own publishing imprint “BRP Entertainment” and released the first work under his imprint, City Council’s “At Any time.” Ceet followed that up with his customer highly rated fourth novel “Mentality” late in 2012. Fans of Ceet’s work credited his growth in style and creativity in this book. In January 2013 Ceet released the long awaited sequel to his first novel, “The Whore and The Virgin Part II” which was met with rave reviews. 

Today Ceet continues to work on building his writing and filmmaking career from his home in South Philly. He still self-publishes all of his work and produces skits and short films for the web. With several more releases set Ceet shows no signs of slowing down. 

Deceptive Innocence, Part One (Pure Sin) by Kyra Davis

TITLE: Deceptive Innocence, Part One (Pure Sin)
AUTHOR: Kyra Davis
GENRE: Contemporary Romance/Suspense
RELEASE DATE: 01/13/2014

Part 1 of Deceptive Innocence—the first book in the sensual, thrilling Pure Sin trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Kyra Davis (Just One Night). A beautiful young woman is out for revenge—only to find the man she’s targeting has secrets as dangerous as her own, and a passion she cannot resist.
Ever since her mother died while serving time for a murder she didn’t commit, Bell’s been focused on one thing: revenge. She knows her mother was set up by the head of the powerful Gable family, international bankers who will crush anyone for profit, or amusement. Now she’s determined to take the Gables down—from the inside.
Seducing her way into the life—and bed—of the family’s rebellious youngest son, Lander, she figures it should be easy to uncover the secrets she needs to destroy his family. But Lander turns out to be much more complicated than Bell ever could have imagined. He’s enticing, intelligent, mysterious—and their sexual chemistry is off the charts. Lander is still the target, but when he touches her, he starts seeming much less like an enemy… Which is why her anger is more necessary than ever: Memories of her mother must help fuel her quest for justice to the very end.

Deceptive Innocence, Part One, the first book in Kyra Davis' "Pure Sin" series introduces you to Bell or Bellona, or so that is the name that she is going by. Bell is determine to avenge her mother's murder sentence, which also led to her suicide. After many years of planning, she decides that she will gain her revenge by taking down the Gables, who are family that she feels is responsible for framing her mother, thus leaving her, a child, with no family, forced to fend for herself as she bounced from foster home to foster home. No tactic is off limits, as she uses her intellect and beauty to seduce Lander Gable, and wit, honesty and promised loyalty as infiltrates the home and life Travis and Jessica Gable.
Even after years of research and careful planning, she cannot quite shield herself from the feeling she gets when she is touched by Lander. Bell is supposed to be the one doing the seducing, yet she reminisces about his touch and his words when he's not around. She constantly has to remind herself of the bigger picture and why she is with him in the first place. Does it really work?

I absolutely love this story. First of all, it is well written. You can tell that each character was carefully thought about: their physical appearances, their personalities, background stories, etc. These are complex characters and they are written into the story in such a way, that they bring life to it. As the title suggest, deception, is a common theme of this story and is seen in more than just the main character, Bell.  
My favorite part of , Deceptive Innocence, is the romance and seduction between Bell and Lander.  Bell is there for a purpose, but clearly, she is the one that is being taken and possibly falling in love with the "enemy". She has these wandering thoughts of him and his touch, when she is supposed to be focused. I love how Lander demands that she only keeps her eyes on his while they are in the throes of passion. I also love how he make these comments and observations about Bell, that almost have her convinced that he knows her agenda. Hmmmm... does he?
I am anxiously waiting for Part 2! February 17th cannot get here soon enough.
recommend this to all who are looking for more than a romance read. This is romance and psychological suspense, with just the right amount of sex and lust. I LOVE IT!
