Spotlight Author of the Week: Kimber S. Dawn

**•★ Spotlight Author of the Week: 
Kimber S Dawn **•

All About Kimber:
Who is Kimber? Shit, sometimes even I don't know, lmao. However if I had to type up an author bio (which, son of a bitch, I do) this is how it would read. BTW, caught a lot of shit for this author bio. Really don't give a fuck though, because I was asked to type up a bio. And if I can only say one thing for certain about myself, it's this: I'm real, I don't back down from what I believe, I say what I mean, and I mean what I say. I don't bite my tongue and I never try to hide the ugly parts of who I am... You either love me or hate me, but if you love me... I'll always be loyal, no fucking matter what ;).

I can be called a billon different things—daughter, wife, mother, labor unit nurse. I sell pussy on the side. *Coughs* That would be Persian kittens, thank you…you dirty-minded scoundrel. I'm a book blogger, book pimp, and a book whore. My two indulgences are my Jack’s in life…Jack Daniel’s and Blackjack. My biggest dream, the day I'll acknowledge that I've succeeded in life and can I die a happy woman, is the day I get to go two stark-naked hour-round sexual bouts with Jason Statham. *Sighs*

I was born and raised in Louisiana… and No, I do NOT live in a bayou, I actually see the beaches on the gulf coast more than I see a bayou, lol. I started writing poems and short stories very early in my life. You know, for the Michaels and Leos and Nicks in my life. I've been a book hoarder since I was eleven years old, but then a couple years ago something wonderful happened! The 50 Shades of Grey craze brought to life my inner smut whore and I commenced to read anything and everything smut affiliated. When reading wasn't enough anymore and I noticed that so many of the authors of my favorite indie authors and their books weren't getting the exposure their work deserved, I turned it into a mission, starting my own blog, buying their books and reading them one by one. I then wrote my reviews for my blog and didn't hold back in writing them (Hell yeah those motherfuckers a profanity laden). I've never done a single thing in my life halfway. I always go all in. After the success of my Blog, and the insistence of one of my bestest friends, my sister from another mister, Trina Taylor of Bad & Dirty Books, I was ready to finally take the plunge and see if I could write a book that was worth a damn. I'm a Southern girl to my core, a self-proclaimed smut whore, and I keep hearing that I’m an author, but honestly… I don’t believe the rumors, lol. I don’t feel like a kickass bitch spittin’ out lyrics, or stories, like a motherfuckin’ rockstar.

Tattooed across my ribs are the words I have always lived by: 'Aut viam inveniam aut faciam tibi.' Latin for: If I cannot find a way, I will make my own.

A beautiful, enchanting story of love, happiness—*Record needle scratches across vinyl*
I'm just f==king with you. Love, happiness, and fairy tales… Yeah, they don't live here anymore.

He wants to be the one who breaks her…
But it's not a question of who breaks her, the question is who destroys her.
“We will fight, angel. We’ll fight hard. But it’ll be worth every strike below the belt. Every hateful or spiteful word said, because when we love, when we fuck, when our passion reaches an intensity so goddamn powerful like it has every single time, it’ll extinguish all the bad. I want all your hate, Stell… Just as much as I want all your love. We are doing this. And there isn’t a damn thing you can do to stop it, angel. Is that understood?”

Roman Book 1
By: Kimber S Dawn
Release Date: September 21, 2014
Genre: Dark Romance


Roman is a man of little words and lesser morals. He's a man who accepted his demons long before the average person even realized they had any. Roman has never felt emotions like guilt, shame, or remorse. Roman has also never felt love, sympathy, or compassion

Jaded for reasons unknown with more money at his disposal than he knows what to do with, Roman's walk to the dark side began long before his first kill. He will taunt you, he will make you hope and watch in amusement as you fall for him, believing you're the one who can save his soul. Believing you're the one who can get through because the other twelve failed, you'll know to the marrow of your bones how lucky being number thirteen really is...

How do I know all of this? Because, my name is Heather Mackenzie and I've been number thirteen for a lot longer than I ever intended to be.

This book contains explicit descriptions of violence and sex, obscene language, torture, rape, assault. This book is intended for mature audience members only, and NOT intended for the weak at heart, nor persons with any triggers.

Roman’s Redemption
By: Kimber S Dawn
Release Date: September 21, 2014
Genre: Dark Romance


I once told you, "Every sin I commit, every life I end, every soul I purchase, I do so to watch in gratifying amusement as it fades out. I've taken these lives with whole and complete intentions of watching my sins and transgressions affect and alter the life of others."

I'm afraid those words no longer hold even a thread of truth.

The man you once knew is now nothing more than a ghost.

The blood staining my hands is no longer a consequence of my amusement.

I have become pure evil. The blood you see is the result of my visceral need to hinder the torment and desolation left in my wife's wake.

If you are foolish enough to believe all men are worthy of redemption, even those of us born evil, take my hand and allow me to show you what I believe about Redemption.

For this is, after all Roman's Redemption.

***This book contains raw and graphic sex, obscene language, violence, torture, rape, and assault. This book is intended for MATURE AUDIENCE MEMBER'S ONLY and NOT intended for the weak at heart, nor persons with triggers related to assault, rape, or abuse.***

He never meant to hurt her.

Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life.

She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget.

Review of Twisted Asphalt (Asphalt Outlaw Series #1) by Blue Remy

ATF Agent Sam Dean is missing, and Mason Younger steps out of the shadows – landing right in the middle of the Six-gun Outlaw motorcycle club and the James family.

In the outlaw underworld, Mace’s past in the Marine Corps Second Force Recon impresses the MC President, Alan ‘Stone’ James, quickly sending him up the ranks. His expertise in weapons, sharpshooting, and hand-to-hand combat makes Mace an asset when it comes to the club’s illegal gun selling. This allows him to take part in jobs that prospects never get to see. But this prospect needs to go deeper. This prospect needs actual access to the MC’s gun sales.

What the SOMC doesn’t know is that a patched member ratted out the club brothers and is providing all of the intel to build Mace’s cover.

Everything is falling into place and going according to plan. After three long years, the end is finally drawing near. That is until a chance encounter with Amethyst James sends Mace reeling. As an intense relationship begins to boil, Mace struggles to maintain his undercover identity, expose the traitor within the club, and bring down the MC.

With Amy knocking him on his ass, literally, bombs, and an attempted murder, Mace’s sense of reality begins to blur as he strives to fight his rapidly growing feelings for her and the new loyalty to his brothers.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
In this the first book in the Asphalt Outlaw Series by author Blue Remy, we have a fresh approach to the inside workings of not only a motorcycle club, but also the ATF.  This is the story of an undercover agent that may have bitten off more than he can chew!  A woman that not only literally knocks him off his feet, but gives him something that he cannot live without.  This is Amy and Mace’s struggle to find a way to make their HEA happen.

When the James family lost the matriarch, they lost more than a wife and mother.  They lost their heart and know that they cannot lose Amy, the MC Princess.  Someone wants her dead and is trying to destroy the James family.  There is an informant inside the club, a traitor that is feeding information to the feds. 

Sam Dean, an undercover ATF agent that has been planning the destruction of the Outlaws for the last three years.  With the help of an inside informant he has assumed an alias as Mason Younger, and becomes part of the club. Everything is going according to plan until he meets Amy James, the daughter of the club president.  Now, Sam’s agenda becomes harder to accomplish with the feelings he recognizes that he has for her.

When you lose your mother, your life is changed.  Your family changes and then when you lose your home, your business, things really start to change.  Add to that, you meet a man that makes your heart beat faster and you find yourself believing that this is your HEA.  Amy wants to believe in Mace, but there is something that just doesn’t add up where he is concerned.  Mace is there when she needs him and protects her, while keeping her safe. There is a force that is about to be unleashed and who knows what the outcome will be!

Hero: Sam Dean aka Mason Younger4.5 stars
Heroine: Amethyst “Amy” James 4.5 stars
Steam: 4.5 stars 
Plot: 4.5 stars 
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes! Sex, motorcycles, alpha males and hot ATF agents fill the pages of this remarkable book.  Betrayal and mysteries push this story to another level!

Would I recommend this author: Yes!  I am not easily impressed, but Ms. Remy has really done it with her new series.  The characters are well developed and the plot keeps you enthralled until the last page.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
Etched in Stone by Mayra Statham is a beautifully written love story about two soulmates, Parker Stone and Liz Del Rio finding their happily ever after ending.  The author magically intertwines their lives with mystery, intrigue and desire consuming the reader with a need to be immersed in their world.  The dynamics of the main and secondary characters brings a level of camaraderie and friendship to a well-developed plot.

Parker is a successful businessman, loving son, devoted brother and heart stopping gorgeous alpha male.  He has never wanted a relationship and thought he would live his life without the awe-inspiring love that his parents share.  When Parker, however, laid eyes on the beautiful Liz Del Rio for the first time, he knew without a doubt that he had found his one and only. After finding her, he loses the chance to introduce himself and she disappears without Parker knowing who she is. Finding her again so that he can claim her and let her know she is his is the beginning. When he does finally find her, he moves heaven and earth to let her know she is his angel.

Liz Del Rio does not trust easily.  She has been unlucky in love and is happy baking her special delights and sharing them with her patrons at Izzy Tizzy’s.  Her friends are her family and the inner sanctum of their group is tightly formed from a long hard path they've forged together.  She is a beautiful, sensuous woman that would tempt any man.  Her past mars her vision of what love is supposed to be like not allowing her to venture towards a healthy lasting one.

When the couple finally begins to connect, Liz's past comes back to haunt her and the trouble begins for them. Circumstances begin to spiral out of control and Liz is left devastated and lonely once again.

While reading, I found myself buried deep in the quagmire of evil that the villain’s reach spread over the couple.   Rooting for the hero and heroine to find a way to overcome and defeat this malevolent force in their way to finding their HEA, kept me involved until the end of the book.  It wasn't easy, many tears were shed but the ending outshines everything and leaves the reader happy and content.

Pre-Release Promo Tour: Under the Influence by L.B. Simmons


I loved you once. A love I thought irrevocable. A love I mistakenly believed could transcend both time and circumstance. Under the influence of my dimwitted, naïve, traitorous heart, I became intoxicated with what I now know was simply a figment of my self-indulgent imagination. So drunk
on the feeling, I couldn’t see what was right in front of my face. So foolishly enamored, I blindly followed my heart into the depths of an emotion that would ravage me.

Years later, I know now what I wish I knew then. I am stronger. Smarter. Tougher. I will not allow myself to be broken again.

I loved you.

I raged for you.

I wept for you.

And now, I’m letting you go.

Author’s Note:  Under the Influence is the journey of two childhood friends that spans the course of five pivotal years in their lives. It is a story about their discovery of true
friendship as it blossoms into first love, their experience of crucial sacrifice and ultimate betrayal, and their endurance of agonizing heartbreak on the way to finding lasting redemption.

I put the key in the ignition and started the Jeep when the door opened. My pulse quickened and I locked eyes with my monumental mistake.
I shifted the Jeep into gear and reversed. I did not want to see him and I definitely didn’t want to be alone with him. He held a motorcycle helmet in his hand and started toward me.
“Lieutenant,” he yelled.
I put the Jeep into drive as he continued rushing toward me.
Not a chance in hell. Accelerating way too fast, I peeled out of the parking lot without looking back. Adrenaline pumped through my veins. I turned the corner a lot faster than I should have and a security forces policeman flashed his patrol lights as a warning.
I slowed and drove the twenty-five mile an hour speed limit. The way my blood pumped, I could have gotten out and ran faster than I drove. I heard the motorbike’s buzz before I saw it. Locke was behind me. I wanted to slam on my brakes and see how far I could launch him into the air. He’d need his own jet to get down.
Once I got off the military base, I threw it in fifth. The motorbike had no problem keeping up with me. I pulled into my driveway, cut the engine, jumped over the door, and stormed to my walkway. He was off his bike and at my side before I made it to the porch.
I ignored him and trotted up the first few stairs to the porch. His footsteps followed.
“We need to talk.”
My key sank into the lock.
“Tinklee,” he said with a thickened accent.
I swung around, resisting the urge to push his ass off my property.
“So you do realize I have an actual name.”
“What did you want me to do?” he asked with a deep-set crease between his brows. He was visibly upset. “You shocked the bloody hell out of me. Why didn’t you tell me you were a JSF student?”
“I don’t know, why didn’t you tell me you were a JSF instructor?” I questioned and threw my hands in the air.
“You didn’t tell me your name, which by the way, might have been good to know. I read the student roster. That would have saved us both from this mistake.”
I jerked my head like his words slapped me across the face. It was too late. It was out there. I knew it was a mistake, but saying it out loud cut deep.
I turned back toward the door.
“That was a daft thing to say,” he said in a gentle, caring voice. “I didn’t mean it like that. Listen, last night was incredible.”
“Just go,” I replied. I turned the key and I tried to swallow the lump wedged in my throat.
He grabbed my hand and sparked that fire that made me want to forget who he was and what it meant. My perfect stranger was back with all his tenderness. I wanted to kiss him, hold him, and not have any of the rules matter. But I knew it was impossible. He knew it, too.
