Cover Reveal- M. Leighton

So we're so excited to present you with the absolutely breathtakingly beautiful cover to M. Leighton's book, All the Pretty Poses! We cannot wait to get our hands on this book and know you all feel the same way! So you ready to see it?!?!

Releasing January 26, 2014

He never wanted to be a hero…until she needed him to be.


It took Kennedy Moore years to put her life back together after Reese Spencer shattered it. But she did. Now, years later, strong and independent, she is in pursuit of a single dream—to dance with the Altman American Dance Theater. Unfortunately, Kennedy is learning that a girl from nowhere with no money and no contacts might never be able to reach her goal.

That is, until Reese reappears, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that Kennedy just can’t refuse. In exchange for working on his yacht for a few short weeks, he’ll get her an audition with the famous dance troupe. All Kennedy has to do is keep her head down, work hard and resist Reese. That sounds easy enough, right?


Reese doesn’t want to make it easy for Kennedy. Seeing her again has started a fire in his blood—an unwelcome one. It took him years to forget about her before, so this time he has a plan. It’s simple: Get Kennedy on his yacht, seduce her, get her out of his system, move on with his life. That sounds easy enough, right?

But the one thing Reese didn’t plan for was Kennedy herself—a girl so strong yet so broken, she makes him want to rescue her, to take care of her. To save her. Even if he has to save her from himself.

Twenty-year-old Keeley Moison moves across the country for one reason: to escape the traumas of her past and start over at a new college. What she doesn’t expect is to be thrust into a dangerous future - one where the quarterback of the football team has set his sinister sights on her.

Loner Vahn Silver is an outcast and likes it that way. Living in the shadows, Vahn forces himself into the light to protect Keeley from the man who killed his best friend - even if that means risking his own life. 

But Keeley soon learns that the football team rules the school and everyone in it. When Vahn ends up in the hospital after a vicious attack and her quarterback stalker edges closer to his prey, Keeley must find the strength within herself to fight - and take back the change of possession

Talk about an emotional ride and a glimpse of hope that maybe, just maybe, there is a chance of love at first sight. M.R. Polish took me on an amazing journey with this book. I was having a hard time deciding what book to read and needed something to get me back in my reading mojo. I remember loving Ageless Sea and had Change of Possession on my kindle, loved the cover so I opened it up. So not disappointed.

Keeley moved away from her hometown in hopes of escaping her past. Which she manages to do but is thrown into something even crazier. Meeting Caty, a girl from one of her classes, bumping into Jonah, and a party later where she meets Steve, the quarterback and ‘king’ of the school… Keeley’s life is thrust into something she never saw coming. Steve is….well he has some serious issues… ones that I won’t say because you need to read this book. A mysterious number warns Keeley, but who is it?
Vahn *girly sigh* can I have him please? Vahn has a past too, but instead of running from it he’s trying to expose the truth. Some might say get revenge for his friend, I say he’s trying to prevent it from happening again. So when he sees Keeley falling into the circle that controls everything, he does what he can to prevent her from the same fate. She doesn’t realize it at first, until he asks her to meet him on the boat.

“At that moment, life was perfect. I was alive, and Vahn was the reason why.”

When Keeley realizes the mystery guy is Vahn, it’s like everything is looking up. But perfection isn’t possible and in this case, the drama comes in the form of Steve. What happens? Will Keeley and Vahn make it out alive?

This book was beyond amazing and surpassed my expectations. It definitely got my mood going for another book, it’s just going to be a tough act to follow. M.R. Polish tackled a subject beautifully. Not many people would have brought what she has to life in these pages and I applaud her. Drugs and control are things real people face on a daily basis, its books like Change of Possession, that give hope to those who have been in the same situations as these characters. If you haven’t picked up this book, you need to do so now!
Just finished Change of Possession and I LOVED it!! Keeley was trying to start out fresh after a crazy teen past. She starts meeting new friends and trying a party. This guy Steve takes a weird interest in her.... Wayyyyyyy to weird for her liking. Weird things are happening and she tries to back away. Steve does not like it. She also notices this hot guy... Dark and mysterious. Who knew he would be looking out for her. Vahn... That's his name , starts calling her and they start hanging out. It's what they called "Insta-love". Guess who doesn't like it? That's right Steve. He thinks Keeley is his. And let's just say all his friends are just as messed up. When Keeley finds herself happy with Vahn how far will Steve go to try to take her? You won't believe the one crazy after another. I was I shock most of the book! It kept me going till the end. I read it in one afternoon and loved it!! This is a keeper for sure! Go grab yours today!! 

M.R. Polish was born in Idaho, a long, long, long, maybe not that long time ago.... Writing has always been there for her. Growing up, her mind was filled with stories, some she shared and others she filed away to write down later in life. It wasn't until 2011 that she decided to publish her stories for everyone to enjoy. Her first award and when writing became more than just an idea was in the 5th grade. She won the scary story contest for the school newspaper. It is one story she still has tucked away for memories. Her teacher told her she could be anything she wanted and that she had a talant for writing, being creative and drawing people into her stories. M.R. took that to heart and continued to write, although mostly in secret until recent years.
Now you can find her enjoying life with her family - wrangling her four kids, setting traps in the house with toys for unsuspecting victims (aka, her husband) and writing down all her crazy and fun stories.
"Life is too short to stand by and watch everyone else live your dreams. The bigger the dream, the bigger the adventure!" ~ M.R. Polish

Christina's Review : 

I was excited to read this because I love Danielle's books. This one was no different.  I loved how Carter and Elizabeth just literally run into each other.  At first Carter is a jerk but his past relationships cause him to be that way.  See his previous fiancĂ© well she slept with his dad, broke up his family, all because she wanted the money and power of a doctor.  Carter never wanted to talk to his dad.  Elizabeth was hesitant to start a relationship because she had been treated badly as well.  Carter saw what he wanted and went for it in Elizabeth.  When they decide to date and then go further what will their families say?  Also Elizabeth works for Carter's dad, which he doesn't like.  How will this all play into their relationship? 
I loved the flow and tension in this book.  I was scared several times for the two of them.  But knowing Danielle is a HEA writer I held tight.  I do wish there was more of them but I know Danielle always has something in the works. :)  Go grab your copy today!! 

Author Bio
Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince. 
Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.
Sadly the first piece she ever sent out for publication of any sort was a letter to the editor of The Home News Tribune. It was a piece of thanking the first responders for their bravery and selflessness on Sept. 11th. It was chosen as letter of the week. 
In 2007 Danielle collaborated with Charlotte Doreen Small to write songs for her CD More. Danielle wrote the lyrics for Take My Hand, and Goodbye, while Charlotte contributed the melody. In October 2011 Danielle’s debut novel For Always was released. She has since released The Heart Waves Trilogy, Heart Waves, Breaking Waves, and Waves of Love.  Danielle graduated from Farleigh Dickinson University with honors, and currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and three children.

Entangled Embrace Blog Tour - Sneaking Candy - Reviews

All I ever wanted was to make a name for myself as Candice Salinas, creative writing grad student at the University of Miami. Of course, secretly I already have made a name for myself: as Candy Sloane, self-published erotic romance writer. Though thrilled that my books are selling and I have actual fans, if anyone at UM found out, I could lose my scholarship…and the respect of my faculty advisor, grade-A-asshole Professor Dylan.

Enter James Walker, super-hot local barista and—surprise!—my student. Even though I know a relationship is totally off-limits, I can’t stop myself from sneaking around with James, taking a few cues from my own erotic writing…if you catch my drift. Candy’s showing her stripes for the first time in my real life, and I’ve never had so much fun. But when the sugar high fades, can my secrets stay under wraps?

When I first started this book I immediately knew I was going to love it. Presumptuous much? Definitely. I usually get a feel for a book within the first couple of pages and Sneaking Candy definitely grabbed my attention. So much so that I was up till 4am reading the book until it was finished. I still find myself going back to the book from time to time, in between breaks at work, a browse at lunch, and I’m not tired of it.

Candice is a creative writing student who’s attracted to her Professor, her mentor. I mean that happens right? Spending all that time perfecting your skills it’s bound to happen… or not happen. So Professor Dylan caught Candice’s eye but so has another guy…James, a barista that she sees often… when she gets coffee to ogle the guy of course. But Candice has a secret that no one but her best friend and roommate can know. It could jeopardize everything, not to mention Professor Dylan would be livid. So what’s the secret? Well Candice can also be referred toCandy Sloane the indie author. You see Professor Dylan, among many others in this book, would frown upon Candy. The thing is, that touches home with this book, is that its actually happening. There are so many ‘traditional’ authors that frown upon indie authors. Does it make it right? No. Is it wrong? Maybe. It shouldn’t matter how a book is published, a story told is a story told. How it’s put out on the shelf shouldn’t make a difference but it does and Candice knows this so she tries to keep it a secret.

“James wore a white T-shirt like it was his bitch.”

Then there’s James. The hottie that Candice took a chance on. The boy is beyond yummy and totally off limits… or is he? What happens when the rolls are reversed? Candice is a TA and when she finds out who the start student Professor Dylan was going on and on about, the last person she thought it was going to be was James. Oh the fates! After one drunk night can Candice keep herself in check, can James deal with the fact that they can’t be anything more than colleagues… friends? What happens when lines get crossed and a secret is found out? What will Candice do? What happens with Candice and James? Professor Dylan? Who will come out on top? You need to read this book, I absolutely recommend it! Lisa Burstein did an amazing job on this book and I can’t wait to check out more of her books. I want more of Candice and James!
<3 Dani

I was completely thrown into this book.  Candice Salinas is a graduate student for creative writing and she is working under a professor who she kinda has the hots for.  Well She learns quickly that he is a grade A ass! She is supposed to teach students and do discussion groups.  He is very particular! Candice also loves going to the local coffee shop where she loves looking at James the barista! He seems to be her muse for her secret writing project.  See she has made a name for herself in the NA writing industry.  She's Candy Sloane.  And come to find out her professor Dylan HATES those kinds of writers.  So she tries to keep it a HUGE secret!
Candice decides to let "Candy" out and try to date James.  Only a few days later to find out that he is one of her students AND a super excellent writer.  She tries to keep James just friends but there attraction is too strong.  And I must say that James is amazing! Can they have a relationship?  And can Candice keep CANDY under wraps?  You won't believe the asshole moves the professor makes!!
Overall I loved this book.  I would love to have more of Candice and her Roomate Amanda.  And even more Candice and James.  I recommend picking this up right away!
