Review: Luke: A Scrooged Christmas by CP Smith

36656497

A short but sweet tale of Insta-love and faith.

If Luke Knight could change anything about his life, it would be the day his nephew died. Filled with guilt, Luke lived a lonely existence. Until the day an angel crashed into his truck… and struck his heart.

Anna Stubbs knew one thing without question: God has a reason for everything. Her optimism and faith shine from within, and no matter how hard Luke tries, he can’t ignore it.

When life throws an unexpected curveball, both Luke and Anna will need to reach deep inside themselves this holiday season, and learn to have faith that God is in control and duck slippers truly are a man’s undoing.

Rated R for language and sexual content.

MY REVIEW

Luke: A Scrooged Christmas by C.P. Smith
Luke and Anna
THIS WAS FANTASTIC
5 Stars

This is a novella and for those of you that don’t know what that is, it’s a short novel or long short story… and in CP Smith’s case, it’s an even quicker version of her “insta-love” kinda stories.

This is a holiday/Christmas setting and in the (kindle addition) 73 pages you’ll go from gloomy to joyful to alarmed to turned on to shit, who knows anymore!! God I love her stories!!

Anna is coming home for the first time since her parents passed and her brother Gregg is leaving on a trip with his band which leaves Anna home alone for Christmas. She’s not thrilled to say the least, but when a fender-bender happens and an unexpected malfunction with her furnace, things go from bad to holy fucking hot!!

Luke is a contractor by trade, but filling in for his friend’s heating and Air Conditioning Company while he’s away for the holidays, so when he gets a call about no heat on Christmas he’s not exactly overjoyed, but heads out non-the-less.

Eeeeek, this story is short, but packs a punch! I could not put it down. I was drawn to Luke and Anna immediately and their charm and keenness kept me turning pages like they were on fire. LOL, they just might have been. The storyline was exceptional and effortless to read. The pacing was perfect and the climax did the book justice. I loved it!

New Release: Sensual Secrets by Ellie Masters

Sensual Secrets: Not your mother’s coffee table book…RELEASING November 20th!

Title: SENSUAL SECRETS: Not Your Mother’s Coffee Table Book

Author: ELLIE MASTERS

Release Date: NOVEMBER 20th

Genre: ROMANCE, SHORT STORIES AND POEMS, PICTURE BOOK

COVER

Video Trailer

BLURB

This isn’t a novel… it’s not a book of poems… it’s something MAGNIFICENT!

Enter a world of luscious thoughts and decadent desires. Within these pages you will find a momentary escape from the real world as you sink into a sensuous realm where reality, fact, and fiction combine to sweep you away in an unadulterated fantasy.

Why is it called “Not Your Mother’s Coffee Table Book?

Because, the stories and images inside this book are not fit for younger eyes. They are however, meant to inspire your imagination; to take you on a sensual journey into “what if”and “what may be.” It’s a key to the discovery of the soul, a path less taken, a road you will want to travel again and again. It’s something to share with your lover. You’ll want to keep it close at hand. Under your pillow might just be the perfect place!

The concept for SENSUAL SECRETS: Not Your Mother’s Coffee Table Book came to me this Fall. I enjoy writing erotic shorts, snippets of stories, kernels of revelation, simple moments where we can dip our toes into another place, a sensual realm where we can dream and play. Sensual Secrets is a compilation of my sinful shorts, passionate poems, and sexy short stories written this past year, all bundled into a visual feast for your enjoyment.

Ellie Masters BIO:

FB bio pic

Ellie Masters has been exploring the worlds of romance, dark erotica, science fiction, and fantasy by writing the stories she likes to read. When not writing, Ellie can be found outside, where her passion for all things outdoor reigns supreme: off­ roading, ATV-ing, scuba diving, hiking, and breathing fresh air, are just a few of her favorite pursuits.

Wife, lover, and mother are her most treasured roles, but Ellie has played many parts: counter-girl at McDonalds, a research assistant in a Nanofabrication facility, rocket scientist, physician, and now a published author with the release of her debut novel Changing Roles. Ellie is adding to her publications, HEART’S INSANITY: an Angel Fire Rock Romance coming August 2016.

She has lived all over the United States, east, west, north, south and central, but grew up under the Hawaiian sun. Now, Ellie is proud to call herself a Southern transplant, learning to say y’all and ‘bless her heart’ with the best of them. She lives with her beloved husband, two children who refuse to flee the nest, and four fur-­babies; three cats who rule the household, and a dog who wants nothing other than for the cats to be his friends. The cats have a different opinion regarding this matter.

Ellie’s favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch, laptop in place, watching a fire, drinking a good wine, and bringing forth all the characters from her mind to the page and hopefully into the hearts of her readers.
