From New York Times Best Selling author Lisa Renee Jones, a story with the heat of 50 Shades and the mystery of Pretty Little Liars. Now in development for cable TV with acclaimed producer Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland w/Johnny Depp)
How It All Started...
One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I'd question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She'd bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expired.
Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman's life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman's life, and yes, read her journals--dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I'd never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.
Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn't know. I was becoming her.
The dark, passion it becomes...
Now, I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of being, and I've been delivered to the doorstep of several men, all of which I envision as one I've read about in the journal. But there is one man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed possible. That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn't find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don't understand why his
dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.
All I know for certain is that he knows me like I don't even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep asking myself -- do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn't it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for more.

The All For The ❤️❤️❤️ Team asked Nikki Some Questions:
1.How did you become an author?
By accident! I started off as a blogger after rediscovering my love for reading when Mr Grey gatecrashed my world! I couldn’t get enough of new book boyfriends and stories that captivated my thoughts. I never dreamed I would, or could write a book. Then a Bruno Mars song triggered something in my mind while driving to work one day, and by the end of my shift, a whole new world had developed and Mr King and Arianna were so vivid, it was like I had known them for years! The rest is history!
2. What's a typical day in the life of an author?
Well, for me, it’s crazy! I work as a full time hairdresser and have two children, a hubby and a dog, so every day is busy busy. I don’t get to write until I have come home, cooked for the family and settled down by about 7/8 at night. Then I write until my eyes can’t stay open any more! Days off are bliss as I sit on my butt all day and immerse myself in a different world.
3. Where do you write?
I have 2 places that I write most of the time. My little box room in the house that I converted from a dumping ground into an office. And my rocking chair that overlooks my garden, the kids have dubbed it, kindle corner!
4. What’s the best part of being an author? There isn’t just one great part. There’s so many. Living in the minds of my fictional characters is a feeling you just can’t explain. Releasing a book, with your name on the front cover, is exhilarating to say the least. But also, getting to meet awesome readers, bloggers and other authors on this crazy train is so much fun. It’s all amazing.
5.Does music play a part in your writing process. If so which artists are your favourites to write to?
Music plays a HUGE part in my writing process. I have a spotify playlist for every book I’ve written, and it’s played on repeat whenever I open up my word doc. I also have playlists for setting different moods.
A few of my favorites are...Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, James Arthur, Sam Smith and Adele.
6. What advice do you have for wanna be authors?
Oh my goodness, there are so many things that I have learnt along the way and I honestly think I could write a small book on it! I think the most important thing is, and it’s said a lot, is to write for yourself. Ultimately you need to be in love with your characters and your story. The feeling you put in to it will hopefully transpire through to the readers that pick up your story.
Edit, edit and edit some more. Then give your manuscript to a professional editor. It is more important than I can say!
Both of my books went through edits by me, a beta read by four separate readers,each who are honest and not afraid to say if something doesn’t work, then an professional editor and a proofreader after that!
7. What are you reading now ?
I’m not reading anything at the moment. I try not to get stuck in to someone else's world while I’m writing my own story. But I’m desperate to pick up a book! I’m always happy to hear suggestions as to what to read next!
8. Which author do you fan girl over? Pam Godwin. I actually think I might have a girl crush on her. God help her if I’m actually ever in the same room as her!
9. What was your last 5* read? Pam Godwin’s Vanquish. I bought it on release day (My birthday I might add, Pam must have known!) but I couldn’t start it until I had finished writing High Stakes. Damn near killed me to wait but it was very worth it!
10. Typically you write from the female POV but High stakes had a few chapters from Denham’s, which is the best to write male / female?
I really enjoyed writing from a Male POV, it was so much fun! The novel I’m currently working on is dual POV, I love the versatility you have with it. I can let my imagination run riot!
11. Which of your characters would you most like to be and Why? Ooh this is tough. The obvious answer would to be Arianna, then I would get my delicious Denham all to myself. But, I’m very fond of Lottie. She is straight talking but so loveable, and she lives life with a fierce determination which I admire.
12. Are any of the characters from your books based on people from your real life? Yes. I find myself adding little characteristics from my friends and family to my characters. Every character i have treated are unique, but they definitely have traits from people i know. Mr King is very inspired by my hubby!
13. Have you ever re enacted any of your sex scenes?
All sex scenes are tried and tested previous to getting them down in words. Oh, re-enacted? Yes, many times ;)
14. Which book boyfriend would you like to snog the face off?
I have to choose just one? In that case, Mr Grey of course.
15. Vanilla or Kinky - Kinky
16. Lights on / lights off - Can I say candlelight?
17.Alpha CEO’s or Best friends turned lovers? CEO’s all day long!
18 Tattoos? Turn on or turn off - Turn ON
19.Bad boy or good guy? - Good guy (with a dash of bad!)
20. Finally...Denham or Spike??? No, no and NO! This is impossible. Denham is my first. He will always have a very special place in my heart, and he’s a hot motherfu@ker! But Spike, well, I know things about Spike that you guys don’t, and I think he would give Denham a run for his money. I really do!

Our Holding Aces Review:
*** A Review From All for the ❤️❤️❤️ Review Team *** Holding Aces by Nikki Groom reviewed by Kelsey at Kelsey's Korner Blog
I really have to say bravo to Nikki Groom for this fabulous debut novel.
Nikki has created a new book boyfriend named Mr King, I’m sure it won’t be long before he’s a household name. He’s suave, debonair and handsome (I want him!!). He’s charming, sexy and witty (I want him!!). He’s kind, strong and protective (I want him!!).
Yes I liked him a lot, I also liked the female lead character Arianna, even though she had suffered trauma she still had some energy and fight left in her and I liked the way they fit together and complimented each other. This book had me reading at a very fast pace, it flowed beautifully and it was an easy read. The way Nikki built up the scenes had me anticipating and it was very clever of her. She didn’t rush into the sexual side of things, it was a slow flickering burn waiting to ignite and when it did she portrayed it perfectly. It was hot and sexy but it felt real and not overly done, formulated just right to give you that heat and feel that tingle inside.
I got through this at whippet speed, the banter between the support characters was delightful, the bouts of humour tickled me and I would love to see more stories coming alive in Nikki’s head through these characters. This novel definitely had lots of content but if I have to be extra critical my only complaint would be that I would have liked more angst earlier. But that’s just me, I’m kind of sick and twisted like that.
I knew this was part one and would end in a cliffie, but I felt like this was just the beginning to what could be a tremendous series. For a new author to come up with the quality and style of writing that Nikki has done in Holding Aces I can only take my hat off to her and applaud. I look forward to seeing the next instalment and hope I don’t need to wait too long.
If Nikki progresses the way I think she will I can definitely see another best selling british author in the making and I’ll be willing her on from the sidelines.

High Stakes -The Kingdom Series bk2
High Stakes is the conclusion to The Kingdom Series. It is not a stand alone. Holding Aces is book 1 and should be read first.
“Stupid. Beautiful. Girl. How did you ever think you could be free?”
The last words I heard before the darkness took me and my dreams were shattered
I was on my way to having it all.
Friends, family and a future.
Everything I had wished for but never thought possible.
Denham King showed me just how good life could be. A life where love and happiness were within reach.
I should have known it would never last.
My past is a dark, damp cloud, that has seeped into my skin and left a cold promise.
A promise of hurt and pain.
A promise of a long, hard fight, where the stakes are high and the risks threaten lives.
When your world gets thrown in all directions, and your dreams for the future are torn from your grasp; how do you go on?
Can I fight the demons that haunt me?
Can love save me from fate’s cruel path?
Our High Stakes Review:
*** A Review From All for the ❤️❤️❤️ Review Team *** High Stakes by Nikki Groom reviewed by Jo @ Four Brits And A Book.
Tears in my eyes?
Sense of completion and ending?
Needing a story for the side characters?
Yes. Yes. And HELL YES.
This sequel in the series was heart warming, heart shattering, breath holdingly (yeah, this review needs a made up word!) amazing!
Holding Aces left us holding our breath! Thank goodness I had High Stakes to delve and dive straight into and what a book!
The premise of the story is very insta-love but both characters had such upsetting pasts that you needed them to find one another and heal together and live for the day as one.
I adored all of the characters. From Arianna's loud mouthed bestie, Lottie, to Denham's right hand man, Jack and back again to their exes, Jonny and Amy. That's right. I liked the exes. They played their parts perfectly and I loved to hate them. I lived to hate them.
Fighting for their love was never going to be easy but my goodness what a TWIST at 80%. The last 20% of the book had me guessing and coming up wrong at each turn. This is the point where it became edge of the seat, nail biting kind of good.
I won't lie. I shed tears. I felt anger. I was dejected and low. But I also experienced highs and smiles and a soaring heart. But that ending? Mixed feelings. I can't help but feel the King family hasn't had their perfect ending. Dennam, yes. Tara and Spike, definitely not. Please, Nikki, write their books too! And Little But Loud Lottie, *sobs* bless her poor heart.
Read these books, you won't regret it!
"She's the Queen of his heart.
He's the King of her love.
They're an army of two."
*** A Review From All for the ❤️❤️❤️ Review Team *** High Stakes by Nikki Groom reviewed by Kelly @ Kelly's Kindle Konfessions.
Nikki Groom is fast becoming one of my favourite authors, she has the ability to suck your heart and soul into the story and then spit them back out.
High Stakes is not a standalone book it's the eagerly awaited part two, part one being the heart stopping Holding Aces.
As Holding Aces ended in a cliffhanger I couldn't wait to get my hands on this beauty, I'm so glad it didn't disappoint. The story continues where part one left us Arianna in the hands of the one man she fears the most, I don't want to give too much away but that scene does not end as you would expect.
For a lot of this book Denham and Arianna spend it getting to know each other, spending time with each other and their families cements their relationship. Arianna discovers the secrets behind Denham gaining the Kingdom and his father's death and for once it would seem that Arianna is living the life she always wanted - for a while she is living her dream but of course that's not going to last, as there is a huge shadow about to rock both their worlds and those the care for when they least expect it.
This book certainly kept me entertained from start to finish, I had a real hard time putting it down so much so I had a row with my husband when I refused to turn my kindle off - that ending was so worth that row - it left me somewhat heartbroken too. What makes this book so good is the strength of the characters their do or die approach to life and of course Spike and Lottie bring a lot of light hearted banter to the story too which I loved.So much so that I would love to see them get their own book I need to know how their story ends. Would love to hear Tara's story too !

In this sizzling conclusion to WILD TEMPTATION, Liv and Tyler see the boundaries of their addictions pushed to new limits as their heads battle with their hearts for an explosive fall into the depths of love…
I gave him my body, and he gave me no strings. It was that simple… in the beginning.
I never could have imagined my temptation could become my addiction. If I knew for a second how entirely Tyler Stone would consume me, I never would have handed him my body so freely.
His addiction feeds mine. My cravings ignite his. Together we are dangerous. Destructive.
But now it’s too late. We’re bound by more than our inexplicable need for the other, and the ties that hold us together are irreversible.
He craves my body. I crave his heart.
This is addiction.
Wild Addiction is book two of the WILD series. It is preceded by Wild Attraction, a free prequel, and Wild Temptation, the first full-length novel.
“No, you don’t. You’re impulsive and indecisive and spur-of-the-moment.” He runs his nose up my neck. His breath coats my skin in a swath of heat that sends tingles through me. “It’s what I love about you. I love it when you don’t think.”
“Because when I do, I overthink to hell.”
“Precisely.” He smiles against my skin. “So stop thinking.”
“Even if I think you’re cute?”
“Especially that.” He laughs, his hands settling against my waist.
I expect them to slide down, to cup my ass and pull me toward him. They don’t. They flatten against the small of my back and linger there. The heat from his hold seeps through the material of my sweater.
The tension zings. It bounces off him and me, colliding in the tiny space between us and igniting like fireworks on the Fourth of July.
My chest heaves with anticipation. I want his touch. Despite my earlier thoughts about the sex overriding the rest of our relationship, when we’re here, like this, so close, I can’t help but need him inside me. I can’t help but want to be so connected to him.
“There’s more to us.” The words leave me, barely audible, unintentional.
“What do you mean?” he whispers into my ear.
“Than our addiction. There’s more, isn’t there? It’s stronger than our addiction. More intense, yet just as dangerous. It’s lingering under the blanket of our addictions.”
Tyler eases one hand around my front and up my body until he’s cupping the back of my head. “Yeah. Yeah, there’s so much more than our addiction.”
I press my face into his chest as Nana’s words come back to me. “When you’re in love, you’ll know it.”
“We are so fucked,” I whisper into his shirt. “So fucking fucked.”

In this sexy new CALL series spin-off series by New York Times bestseller Emma Hart, enter the intense world of a no strings relationship and experience addiction like you never expected...
The moment I walked in to find Mr. Tall, Dark, Handsome, and Oh So British--my mind-blowing one night stand--as my photographer for the shoot that could change it all, I knew life was throwing me a curveball.
The moment he, Tyler Stone, walked into my best friend’s apartment, I knew that curveball was heading straight for my gut.
The hit comes in the form of a no-strings proposition… One that gives him utter control over my body.
If I surrender, that curveball is steadily en-route for a collision course with my heart.
He’s a sex addict. I’m a love addict.
This is temptation.
*Wild Temptation is book one of the Wild series and a full-length novel at approx. 92,000 words.*

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy - unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
