                                  LAVEDA'S REVIEW 4.5 Stars

Broken City is a book about living life in the aftermath of destruction. There are four tribes that I know of, the Clark tribe, Marshall tribe, Lewis tribe and the Andak tribe. They live separate from each other and as far as I could tell, they don't get along. The Clark tribe lives in a peaceful compound and stays to themselves. Our two main characters are from this tribe, Deeta and Tom. Deeta is a 20 year old girl who has never been outside of the compond. She lives with in the compound with her mother, father and sisters. She is sweet, caring, loyal, brave and puts all others before herself. Then we have Tom, I'm not sure it ever mentions his actual age, but I know he's at least 30. Tom is a mystery. You know he's a good guy because of his actions and the way he takes care of everyone, but in the back of your head you're wondering if maybe he's got secrets we don't know about. He's a very closed off person, you rarely see his emotions, unless it's anger or he's around the children, then you see a bit of happiness. There were so many characters to keep up with it was unreal. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up. I was wrong, she makes all of her characters memorable in some way. So many twists and turns. You think you know where it's going, but you dont. I spent the whole book you are waiting for Deeta and Tom to realize that they like each other...I won't spoil it and tell you what happens. It's hard for me to really go into detail about this book and not give something away. I will just say, there will be fighting amongst the tribes, kidnap, love will be found, hearts will be broken and I will definitely be reading the next book because this one was awesone. I give Broken City 4.5 stars

Life isn’t turning out the way Deeta thought it would. With the Lewises defeated and peace between the tribes, she’d believed that the dark times were in the past.

However, troubles between the tribe continue and the Andak council has selected Tom as ambassador and chief spokesmen to the other tribes.

Deeta knows that there is still much resentment against the Andak, that Tom is in danger every time he leaves the safety of Andak city.

Struggling with her own her own complicated feelings against the tribe that she is now a part of, Deeta tries to ignore the changing attitudes growing within her.

Then Tom is betrayed and with the whole City thrown in to great danger, Deeta finds that reality can’t be ignored forever…





Hi everyone! My name is Dee Dee, I’m twenty six and I live in a beautiful part of Devon, England with my family. I have a younger sister, Amy who is a brilliant guitar player, some chickens, duck, geese, pheasants, a cat (that adopted us when we moved in!!!) and some Koi.

Broken City is actually my second novel. My first, as my Aunt so delicately put it, was crazy. In my defence I was only sixteen when I wrote it. On the plus side I learnt a lot (or so I hope) and two years later ‘Broken City’ was finished. Due to the support I have received from readers I have just finished the next book in the Broken City series, Broken Truce!

I have another book, ‘The Promise’, which is set in Saxon England is the beginning of a series. I’ve just begun to edit the next book and I’m really looking forward to releasing it. My third series is called The Chronicles of Discord. The first book, 'Fracture', is set in the distant future and tells the story of Astra, a young woman with a very big secret.

I have just finished the second book in the series and it’s currently awaiting editing. I really hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.

I love reading and have a kindle: I read almost anything with adventure and romance in it! I also like to cook and wear impractical high heels!!! And as you might have noticed I have a horrible addiction to exclamation marks!!!

Tour Stop & Giveaway~Fractured Steel by T.J. Loveless

Title: Fractured Steel
Author: T.J. Loveless
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Publication Date: February 15, 2014

Karen Barnes’s life is simple, just the way she likes it, surrounded by horses and the mountains of Laramie, Wyoming. She is well aware the longing for adventure can lead to blood and death, a hard lesson taught during her one, and only, tour in Iraq almost a decade ago.

A stranger approaches Karen about boarding a famous horse foaled in her stables, making her instincts go on high alert. She knows for a fact the stallion’s owner would never sell Five Alarm, the US Reining champion worth a hefty ten million dollars. In ten minutes the stranger confirms her worst fears, launching her into weeks of torment at the hands of her kidnappers.

Armed with a spine of steel, she steals a truck and trailer, rescuing another victim, and recovering Five Alarm, but the ordeal is far from over. The kidnapping was a cover up for espionage. Trusted contacts join the fray, and in the end, pay for their loyalty by dying for her safety. Others aren’t so trustworthy, and as the truth is brought to light, she is betrayed yet again.

Safety and freedom come with their own emotional shackles. She had the courage to fight the battle, but can she live with the aftermath of the carnage, or survive the fractures to her mind?

Born in Anchorage, I've lived ... well ... everywhere. From the Arctic Circle to a block from the beaches in Florida. I speak fluent Arkansas Hillbilly, make a mean gumbo, can sew when necessary and am a whiz at packing.

You'll generally find a Muse snuggled to my hip, the other one laying across my shoulders and Editor Kitty staring at the screen, waiting for the red ink to make an appearance. Once it does, he lays across the keyboard purring.

The family brags about the latest compromising position I've been found in, trying to figure out how to truly describe "legs all akimbo" or if falling on the couch could truly land a body in a certain position. They ignore my yelling at characters on the computer screen, and are forgiving when I accidentally write past the time for them to eat. It's one way of teaching the teenager to cook ...

Releases on February 15!

                                                     ~REVIEW~ ****

Let me start off by saying this book was absolutely beautiful. I loved every minute of it. I never wanted to put it down once I stared. I loved Reese and Walker’s instant connection to one another. It was one of those meant to be relationships that I just knew had to be. The beginning of the book is sweet and will just have your heart melting into a puddle with all the love and consideration that Reese gets from Walker. But then it’s like BAM and everything starts slowly spiraling and my stomach was in knots the whole time. I held my breath a few times. I was so devastated by the end of the book. It broke my heart that the book didn’t go like I had prayed and hoped it would. I was a crying mess at the end and was let down that things didn’t go differently.
You are going to love Walker Reed! He is one of the most amazing and passionate men. He gets in your heart and takes up residence in it. I really loved him and enjoyed getting to be a part of his journey in this book. My heart broke for him over and over though at all of the deception and lies that were going on around him and he never really finds out about them.

Reese is an amazing woman a woman who is loving and caring and does anything to protect those she loves. She proves herself more than once in this book by that. I was so heartbroken for her when things went the way they did. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get over the fact it all didn’t go like I hoped and I’m even more anxious for book two after finishing book one!
