Illustrated Temptations: Poughkeepsie Begins by Debra Anastasia


“You will never be alone! We’re together. Do you understand?.”Beckett

How could you not love Beckett? Cole? and Blake? These three have always been on the list of my favorite book boyfriends. They made a comeback after the happily ever after on Saving Poughkeepsie. It’s not a continuation though. It’s a rewind from the start, when the bromance blossoms between the three. I had a love-hate moment reading Poughkeepsie Begins. There were so many heart wrenching scenes that I truly cannot imagine happening to these young boys. But everything that they went through really defines and molds the strong foundation of their brotherhood.

Debra will always be on my top favorite authors.

Check out some of my favorite scenes…

Tina Reviews: Joseph Fallen (Estate Series) by M. S. Willis



Content Warning: This bookcontains graphic sexual situations, mature language and explicit description of physical and sexual violence.There is a fine line between genius and madness…
Between love and hate,
Between right and wrong.
Joseph had created The Estate for her…
His wife,
The woman he chose to bear his child.
She was beauty unsurpassed;
And her song was unlike anything he’d ever known.
However, their love was a story that would not find a happy ending.In this prequel novella to the Estate series, follow Joseph Carmichael as he creates a world unlike any other. Because, in order to comprehend The Estate, you must understand Joseph; but, in order to understand Joseph, you must discover how a man falls from light into the pitch black depths of ultimate darkness.

Illustrated Temptations: Before Ryan Was Mine by Kahlen Aymes


Ryan and Julia—one of my all time favorite couple from The Remembrance Trilogy by Kahlen Aymes.

It always excites me when an author decides to write more about their beloved characters.  That’s why I am a bit disappointed with myself for not reading it sooner when I got my copy. Well you know how real life intrudes on our reading time. lol Anyway, I’m just so glad to know more about Ryan and Julia during the time when they met and how all the sparks happened. And it was all written here—Before Ryan Was Mine.

This series is one of the sweetest love stories that will always have a special spot in my heart.

Check out Elena’s review here.

I hope you enjoy my illustrations…
