What I've Read, and What Have Been Up To

Hello My Fellow Bookworms, I haven't made a post since the last day of March. I'm sorry for that. Been busy with life and reading. Racing season has begun!!! There was a practice session on the 31st of March. The first race of the season was Saturday 14th.... My brother broke the back axel. He was in seventh place and doing really well. Hopefully the car will be fixed. There is a race this coming Sunday April 22nd.

As far as reading goes I've read a few books so far in April.... I feel a reading slump coming on.

*Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl 3/5 stars
This book took me 2 months to finish.... Thus why I am in a reading slump
* Unwrapped by Taryn Quinn 4/5 stars
Reading fluffy romance books helps me when in a reading slump... yes it was a Christmas story. Don't give me that look. Spring isn't acting like spring here in Central PA.
* Flithy Scrooge by Taryn Quinn 4/5 stars
* Mountain Man Candy by Frankie Love 4/5 stars

Currently reading Wild In Love by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully. It is an ebook ARC. I'm 39% in and really liking it.

Not sure what I will read after that. I want to reread the A Court Of Thorns and Roses trilogy to get read for A Court Of Frost Starlight. I have it preorder for my Nook app on my phone!!

My brother's roadrunner for the 2018 season. We have a new sponsor Frank's Electrical Construction and will be adding another soon.

Happy Reading and Racing, Ashley!!!

What I've Read and Currently Reading Updates

Hello My Fellow Bookworms, I'm sorry for not posting an update on Monday. My cat Lily was spayed on Tuesday. So I have been playing cat nurse. I did finish reading Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. I rated it 4/5 stars. It was just a very slow read for me. I needed a pick me up so I reread King by T.M. Frazier. It was even more amazing the second time around. I read Dream Dark which is book 2.5 in the Caster Chronicles. Gave that 4/5 stars. I will be reading Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Not sure if I will finish it over the weekend or not. I feel like reading a book on my kindle.

What have you read over the past week? What are you reading over the weekend? Let me know in the comments down below!! Happy Reading, Ashley

I took a couple days off. I haven't been feeling like myself. Just really down in the dumps. Happens to me sometimes. I read Daughter Of The Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I loved it. Will be posting a review soon. I am still working through Beautiful Darkness. I am hoping to finish that this week. We shall see. 

What to do all do when you are feeling low? I played alot of Candy Crush on my phone. I did try writing a song which is what I usually do when I don't want to talk to anymore. I'm not very good at opening up to anyone. 

I hope you're reading week is going well. What are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Reading, Ashley

Blog Tour: "Up In Smoke" by T.M.Frazier and Review

Up in Smoke, an all-new gritty standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author T.M. Frazier is LIVE!

 "I’m a man without a conscience.
  I deal in murder and mayhem.
I’m the best at what I do.
Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job.
A means to flush her father out of hiding.
Except there isn’t anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she’s keeping.
She’s stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins.
She’s cocaine with legs. A f*cking addiction that makes me question things I’ve never questioned before. Want things I’ve never wanted before.
I might have her, but she isn’t mine to keep.
If her father doesn’t show his face, she will be mine.

** Other books in the King Series DO NOT have to be read to enjoy Smoke's book. Up in Smoke can be read as a standalone. **

“All these bruises,” Smoke muses. “And not one of them caused by me.” He trails a hand up my arms and down my flat stomach. “Pity, but I still have time to leave my mark on you yet.”
My entire body stiffens. I’m as rigid as a corpse.
Smoke chuckles and I’m glad I’m facing away because his laugh is pure torture, causing his erection to vibrate against my folds which are aching for more contact.
“You will be punished, hellion. You can be sure of that.”
I look over my shoulder and meet his dark eyes which darken even further as his pupils dilate. His lingering gaze rakes me over from my feet to my breasts and back down to the space between my thighs. He licks his full bottom lip.
My stomach flips. My will to fight him off doesn’t waiver, but my body isn’t getting the message. My core clenches again. I turn back around to face the tile, digging my teeth into my lower lip until I taste my own blood.
His chest presses against my back, and his hardness pulses between my legs, rubbing against my inner thighs. He squirts some shampoo in his hand, working it into my hair. He tilts my head back and rinses my hair then slides his slick and soapy hand down my body.
I’m breathing rapidly now. Short quick breaths I can’t control. There’s a deep rumble in his throat. His hand travels lower and lower on my stomach until it’s between my legs. He’s working his thumb over my swollen nub, sending sparks of need, pangs of pleasure, and a wave of self-hatred, surging within my battered body and bruised soul.
“What…what are you doing?” I ask, seeing flashes of white hot lust behind my closed eyes.
“More questions…” his voice a hearty amused rasp. His fingers circle my clit while he continues to rock his hard cock between my legs. The pressure building is so strong it borders on painful.
Tears leak from my eyes. I’m so fucking mad at myself for being turned on. For Smoke being right. I’m so wet. He feels it. There’s no way he can’t feel it.
He leans in close. I’m stone still except for the tremors gripping my body. He licks the tear off my cheek and groans. He dips the tip of his finger inside of me and I tighten around the intrusion. It’s a foreign sensation. Strange. It feels both wrong and right. Pleasurable and painful. “Your tight little pussy is weeping too. I wonder if its tears taste the same.”
I look over my shoulder as he withdraws his finger and sucks it into his mouth. He groans. “Fear or desire. They both taste real fuckin’ good to me.”
He places his hand back between my legs. When I try to squeeze my thighs together to keep him out he parts them with his knee on a grunt and begins circling my clit again. This time harder. Faster.
I’m staying as still as I can, but when I feel something begin to happen inside my body. The sparks he ignited within me are all crashing together. I can’t hold back. My face scrunches as I try to fight the orgasm fighting its way out, but it’s no use. I can’t fight it. It’s too fucking strong. I’m so fucking close.
I arch my back without thinking, pressing my ass against him, begging for more. For what I need to push me over the edge.
Smoke hisses. “Oh, what I could do to this beautiful little pussy.”
The pleasure builds and builds as he strokes me harder. Faster. I’m about to come all over his fingers when the feeling is lost.
I spin around.
Smoke is gone.
I can’t see through the steam so I shut off the spray and wipe the water from my eyes only to see Smoke toweling off in front of the sink on the other side of the bathroom.
The only proof I have of what just happened between us was real is his cock. Erect. Thick. Huge. The purplish swollen head bobs against his abs, jutting out over the top of the towel he wraps around his waist.
“What…what just happened?” I stammer, leaning back against the wall for support.
Smoke steps forward, and when I go to jerk back, he reaches out and pinches my nipple painfully hard. I yelp and leap back, slipping on the tile, falling on my ass, taking the shower curtain down with me.
Smoke rips the curtain off my head and glares down at me with a triumphant grin on his evil beautiful face. “What just happened was called punishment and you got off easy. Next time I’ll split that tight pussy in two with my fucking cock.”
He goes to leave but stops. “You want pain?” he asks. “I’ll give it to you. You want pleasure? Now that’s something you’re gonna have to earn.”
He leaves, slamming the door behind him.
I release a shaky exhale.
I’d hoped the rest of my time with Smoke would be tolerable, but there’s no fucking way that’s going to happen. Not now. Not with my skin crawling with need. I’m losing my mind. About where I am. About what this is all about. About this beautiful horrible evil man.
I feel like I’ve already been split in two.
What Smoke is doing to me is far more than punishment.
It's  pure fucking torture.

My Review:
Before I get into my review on Up In Smoke. Let me say this.I came across King by T.M. Frazier last May from BookTubing Amy. At the time I read it King was free to purchase. I did sign up for kindle unlimited just to binge read the read of the series. I fell in love with the story lines and characters....
Now onto my love for Up In Smoke. Smoke is one badass mofo!!! I loved seeing him and Frankie interacting. 
This book was everything I've come to love from T.M. Frazier. Smoke and Frankie are quite the duo. I loved reading about each of their backgrounds. Seeing Smoke bond with Bear,King, and Preppy. Made my heart all warm inside. I adored this book just as much as all of Tracey's books. Words won't ever give justice for how much I love this book!!! I am so glad to have been given an ebook ARC of Up In Smoke. Tracey thank you for another amazing male and female main characters. This was one crazy ride. 

5/5 stars... I'd give a billion if I could!!!

Happy Reading, Ashley
