To Wendy. Keep rockin' girl!
To Diana's fans, past and present, who wondered when she would
find her happiness. This one is for you. I hope it was worth the wait.
Yeah peeps....thats right this is from the inside of of Tonya Ramagos' new Rock Hard Seduction series...Magical Riffs...uhhhh huuhhhh and that dedication is to, Yeah thats right again...ME!!!!!!!
(bouncing up and down here) Just how fricken cooooool is that!
I have been anxiously awaiting this story (obviously) because im hoping that it will bring alot of loose but wonderful ends up to greatness!
And seriously b/c Tonya writes one helluva series!
This is one of the best series I have read. I mean usually book two or at least book three starts to dwindle...but not with this series. And as much whining as I do about Derek and Alicia, I still deep down think the ending was actually quite perfect and to be honest I read it like every couple days. It is the most touching ending in a book ever!
So Magical Riffs.....the story of Alicia's best friend Diana and the new Bassist of Facade. And oh....they have already met, and Diana broke his heart ten years ago...history always makes for a nice tortured hero...dontcha think? And I dont think I like anything better than a tortured hero!
So off I go to devour my new dedicated eloving book...yummmmmm yummmmmmm.

Tonya Ramagos' Rock Hard Seduction series is seriously one worth reading. This cover that I have posted is by far one of the best yet in the series...man just check out that package!!!
The series follows the band members of Facade a hard rock band, and let me tell you these are some hot men.
The first in the series Voices and Lies is about the lead singer Derek and how he is trying to get away from the life of fame for a little r & r. The heroine Alicia is completely enamored with him and imagine her shock when he shows up at her sisters famous b & b for his relaxing vaca. The story is completely steamy and totally heartwrenching, I have gone back over and over again to read the ending and just cant get enough of the emotion that runs through these two. This one is on my highly recomended read list.
Book number two is Picking Art, this one is about Suzanne and Garret the bands guitar player. Now I didnt think I would like this one near as much as the first but Garret was such a contrast to Derek that it was refreshing. Suzanne is a prim and proper lady, never heard of the band and that I think makes her even more appealing to Garret. This is truly a great romance novel with a really wonderful HEA.
Book three is Sports Beat, now this one I knew I would like! I first read blurbs on this book and discovered the others and was hooked from the minute I read the blurbs. This is Melody and Reese's story. Two very headstrong people not looking to be in a relationship at all. Melody is a very strong, proud, smart heroine with a past that is a little haunting. Her brother is a famous hockey player and is friends with Reese Torrin drummer of the band facade. Reese had never met Melody until the night they were at a game and he was sitting next to her badmouthing a play her bro made. Mel didnt take shit from anybody and let him know that. I think it was love at first snap for these two they just didnt know it. There are a lot of ups and downs in this one and I swear Tonya does justice for all of these books.
Now for book number four that I am anxiously awaiting!
Magical Riffs-This is the story of Diana. She is Alicia from book ones best friend and she has been present throughout the whole series. I was at first dissapointed when she didnt get hooked up with Reese b/c she was enamored with him in the first book. But after reading Reese's story I came to realize that Diana and Reese being great friends actually just fit. So to find out that Diana finally is going to get her HEA is wonderful. Now how does this tie into the band Facade, well let me tell you. Funny how the world works sometimes isnt it. Facade recently lost one of the bands originall members due to him having a family and not wanting to tour anymore...understandable. Looking for a new bass player, in walks James to the auditions. He is an immediate fit for the band. When Diana hears his name, emotions tear through her and suspense of all suspense as this happens in Reese's story we are left wondering what the hell happened between these two. Dammit!!!!
Thank God it comes out in like two weeks!!!! Less actually.
Now my love for Tonya goes beyond this series as the woman can write some of the steamiest sex scenes ever! She has some menage books that I think burned my ram up on my computer. Her heroes of silver springs series is another of my faves and swear the woman has met one of my all time fave bands....DISTURBED!!! God...I cant tell he enough how jealous I am of this!!! Plus and this is one of my fave things about an author. She is very easy to talk to, she emails you back and I find that refreshing.
So I would highly recommend pretty much anything she writes....

Ok so I promised my friend Lindy that I would post her product on my blog, but I wanted to wait until after I tried out some of it...hello obviously. All I can say is WOW!!! I HIGHLY recommend the Whipped Sugar Scrub, and the Whipped Body Frosting. These two products used together will leave your skin glowing! Not to mention the heavenly fragrances! I have tried a couple, Black Coconut (smells a lot like Hawiian tropic which I just love for the summer), Cherry berry and my all time fave so far...Lemon Cheesecake. OMG that Lemon Cheesecake is absolutely to die for. I seriously had to ration my usage b/c I was wanting to eat cake everytime I used the stuff.
I am a big fan of sugar scrub and I have used some of the higher end ones (I wont name names but it starts with are and ends in bon) and it leaves behind this film on your skin that you have to rewash off. Not the Whipped Sugar scrub, I have used it for about 5 days in a row now and my skin is shining...plus those hard spots, elbow, knees, ankles...look fabulosity! I mean it is summer after all! I have also used the bath whipped Cream Soap, great stuff too, and then use the sugar scrub after that the body frosting and man oh man...my legs and arms are like what the hell is going on here...I feel softer than ever! Seriously I love this stuff and plan on ordering some more products soon!

You will not be sorry!

ALRIGHTY!!! I HAVE SEEN THE PURPLE LIGHT!
Rhev's book is done. Now let me say, after Lover Enshrined I was sooooo fed up with Ward. I was just done with her books. Phury was such pussy and his mate sucked too. I was pissed b/c she gave a ton ton of time to the new troika and I really didnt like and still am not too sure about JM. So when the Compendium came out I was like no way dude, not happening....well....she threw in a short story of Bella and Z and Im telling you that thing would never have sold so many copies if she hadnt. Plus another bonus was a blurb about my main man Rhev. Now for some reason, dont know what it is...but I can read a book and usually p/u whether its gonna be worth the read. Let me say, Ward had me on this one. The blurb reminded me of her earlier works.
So that being said, I have devoured Lover Avenged. Ward has redeemed herself in mine eyes. This is probably bumped up to my third fave, my first being of course Z and Bella, and my second, which is much controversial with people being V and Jane. Rhev's story was very well done. Ehlena is the effin shit! She is sooooo real, she has a real job, she has to struggle to survive and take care of an aging father and the glymera have done the family wrong. Its in your face realism from a paranormal standpoint. You can just picture yourself in her shoes. To be honest I didnt experience that with any of the others. Rhev is heartbreaking. Yes he's a pimp, drugdealer, criminal...but you know what how far would you go to take care of the only people you loved and that loved you? Hey, dont put me in that sitch cuz your gonna get the same results. Rhev makes the ultimate sacrifice as his secrets are about to go live to the public, he gives himself to that sadistic sympath princess. Man shit hits the fan too...now dont get me wrong, Ehlena is totally pissed that Rhev is what he is but hey..she gets over that eventually and goes to rescue him.
There are also alot of other story lines happening here...Wrath and Beth are featured alot and it was great to see them back in action. Wrath ends up losing his site completely. He also was going out fighting without Beth knowing and man...shit hits the fan. He also interacts with Payne...not much mind you and V still has no clue about her.
Tohr is back, he wallows around for about half the book, then Lassiter tells him Wellsie send him to save Tohr and whups, I better shape up. Which kinda irritated me. He really destroys JM in this book before he wakes up and as far as JM is concerned he is done with the "family" sitch.
Speaking of JM....well....lets just say you see the next book unfold. Like I said before im not a big fan of his, so its going to depend on the other arcs in his book and the next one coming out b/c I dont think I would buy it in H/B. He gets some serious groove time in with the females too though...not just Xhex either and not just M/F. Xhex has a long road to recover from in the next book as she was taken prisoner by Lash, and who knows what he's doing with her. JM's final thoughts on that is that he is going to find her and get her back. No Matter what.
Lash is in this one alot, as he is the new face for the Lessening society...good stuff happening with him too.
One more note...I really really like iAM and Trez. They are the quiet Moores that guard Rhev with his life. I should say quiet but extremely effective and deadly. It was great to see those two again. Hope to see much more of them iin the future.
I really recommend it great job by Ward!
