Thanks to Edelweiss and the author, I was allowed to read a complimentary copy of this book. I was very excited because I have read Shelly Bell in the past and loved her work. I was not disappointed as this book was not only a very hot read, but a very intriguing one also.

The book takes you into the world of BDSM. The majority of the book is spent in the home of a sex club and centered around Danielle’s entry into the world as a sex slave trainee. Danielle is only there to try to get secrets of the owners in order to save her step-mother but she secretly has desires that fall into this world. Even bigger is her renewed attraction to the owner, Cole, even though she has blamed him for years for her father’s death.

As the book proceeds, we learn more about Cole. Danielle and Cole can’t deny their mutual attraction. The suspense increases as Danielle tries to get the information she needs without losing Cole in the process. Then comes the final twist of the book that no one expects.

This book keeps you on your toes and wanting to read it to the end. It was a great read and five big stars. Great job Shelly Bell!

A sucker for a happy ending, Shelly Bell writes sensual romance often with a bit of kink and action-filled erotic thrillers with high-emotional stakes for her alpha heroes and kick-ass heroines.

She began writing upon the insistence of her husband who dragged her to the store and bought her a laptop. When she’s not working her day job, taking care of her family, or writing, you’ll find her reading the latest smutty romance.

She currently writes erotic suspense for Avon Red Impulse, Loose Id, and Soul Mate Publishing.

Title: Fall of Knight
Author: Steven Cross
Genre: YA psychological thriller
Publisher: Booktrope Publishing
Release Date: April 7th, 2015

A normal teenager Dean Knight is not.

With a mental illness that threatens to take over his sanity; a sister who’s deep in her own problems; and a wasted mother who couldn’t care less about it all, Dean is left to battle real life on his own. School, bullies and medications are his realities.

Then there are also the ghosts, the hallucinations and of course – the monster.

In the middle of it all, when everything seems to lose purpose, hope comes shining down on Dean’s miserable life. Her name is Ella and for one reason or another, she actually wants to be close to Dean. With Ella’s help, the lost teenage boy decides that he could finally win a battle or two – both in real life and in his writing.

But hope is a tricky thing. And the monster seems to know that.

When secrets buried down for almost a decade come out in the open, what do you do?

Steve Cross’s first successful writing project was a play about a werewolf that his eighth grade English class performed. Though the play was never published, the warm fuzzy feeling from its public performance has never quite left Cross, who continues to sink his teeth into a variety of writing projects. His first publication was a haiku, followed by two middle grade novels published by POD publishers and a young adult novel published by Buck’s County Publishing.

A fanatical St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan; a lover of all kinds of YA fiction, as well as the writings of Dean Koontz and Stephen King; a fan of all kinds of music – from Abba to the Zac Brown band, Cross dreams of the day he will write a best-selling novel or sell a screenplay for seven figures, so he can retire and write more best-selling fiction.  Until that day, he and his wife Jean, Missourians born and bred, will continue to toil in the field of education and live in peace with their two dogs and two cats and wait around until their daughter Megan and son-in-law Sean give them grandchildren to spoil.
