TNSC Box set

SYNOPSIS

Sex, Blood, and Rock n Roll Books 1-3 of The Night Songs Collection.

Because the Night

Sex, Blood and Rock n’ Roll

Immortal Dilemma is the hottest band in the Las Vegas vampire rock scene. They draw insatiable fans from around the globe, thanks to a supernatural attraction called Bloodlust. Tristan craved such an opportunity to fill his empty mortal life, and now he has eternity to earn his place along the legends of rock n roll debauchery.

Callie always feared that Tristan’s excesses would get him into trouble, but she never thought they’d lead him to immortality. To reconnect with him, she must weave her way through a world not only she had no idea existed, but does not welcome her.

Blade turned down a spot in Immortal Dilemma after learning what he must sacrifice for that lifestyle. He finds Callie a refreshing change from the girls in the vampire rock scene. When Callie drags Blade back into the world of Immortal Dilemma, his resistance drives her into the waiting arms of Tristan, who shows her the true meaning of Bloodlust.

But the very things that Callie fights so hard to save are the very things that fight to destroy her.

Night Moves

We bonded in darkness, over darkness.

Melanie Vaughn’s job ruined everything. Her social life, nonexistent. Her relationship with her boyfriend, a hostile roommate situation. She resolves to fix everything one snowy afternoon, but instead comes home to discover her boyfriend is already exploring other options. Blonder, bustier options. Rage drives Melanie to do the unthinkable.

When Soul Divider was on the top of the world, so was Ryder Maddox. When the band faded into obscurity, Ryder’s luck plummeted with it. In a last ditch effort to rekindle the band’s heyday, Soul Divider teams up with powerful vampire clan leader, Talis de Rancourt. In return for her services, the band pays the ultimate price for never ending fame.

Now on the run, Melanie meets Ryder in a middle of nowhere hotel. She never expected her teenage rock star crush to be as lost and as in need of a companion as she is. Their connection is all consuming, even before they find they share another kinship: murder.

The newly turned vampires in Soul Divider still have a lot to learn. The police and public begin to connect the girls that go missing or die in sync with the band’s tour schedule. Back at home, clues are also adding up against Melanie as well. Between constant media coverage and unrelenting attention from the authorities, Melanie and Ryder find themselves in uncharted territory.

We Own the Night

The Ultimate Manipulation.

Callie Chabot would stop at nothing to save her ex-boyfriend Blade Bennett from the clutches of vampire clan leader Talis de Rancourt, even if means becoming immortal herself. What she doesn’t know is that Blade has already defeated Talis, and he’s waiting for Callie in the afterlife.

Now Callie only has her creator, Tristan Trevosier, to turn to for guidance. But he’s too wrapped up in the debauchery of the Las Vegas rock scene to give a damn about the particulars of being undead. That’s enough to drive Callie crazy on its own, but female vampires are automatic clan leaders.

Not only does Callie have no idea how to wrangle a vampire clan, but her would-be followers have more to gain from her failure. They instead choose to follow Blade–and he’s hell-bent on making Callie pay for her bad decisions. Since he took out the existing clan leader, that automatically puts him at the helm of what should be Callie’s new clan.

A Master of Deception.

That’s when seasoned rogue vampire, Cash Logan, shows up, shrouded in magic and mystery. No one is sure which side Cash is on, but Callie needs to take a chance on the one vampire who is willing to give her the answers she needs, no matter how dark and frightening they may be. Callie must trust her instincts and form alliances that may backfire. Cash shows Callie that playing nice is no longer an option, and that fixing her wrongs won’t always make everything right.

To take control of her clan, Callie must look to her rival to discover exactly what makes her a leader.

REVIEW

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 4,5 STARS

Oh. My. God This Book!!!! The plot keeps getting better and better. The first book ended as a cliffhanger (Thank God I decided to read this trilogy when all the books were already published, on the contrary I’d have died), I was so anxious to know what was going to happen with Knox and McKenna, and then I was so pleased with the events of this book.

There were moments that I really enjoyed reading in this book. Some were sad, some were happy, some were really touchy, some were a little romantic and there was one super hyper hot sex scene that Oh. My. God. left me blushing and daydreaming about Knox. He is a helluva dominant. GIMME ONE KNOX TO GO PLEASE!

I really like McKenna, but the narration of Josh Goodman wasn’t the best in her POV, so it was kind of hard to connect with her, but her character is really good.

Finally, in this book McKenna thought about the consequences of being in a relationship with Knox, but she thought he was worth the risks. She believed so much in him, as a man, as a brother, but she still had trust issues toward him. I don’t blame her, Knox had lived a life of one lover after another and zero commitment, that lead him into his addiction for sex.

My obsession with Knox is bigger now. I can’t help it. He is very protective, caring and he is really trying (That is my weakness). He fears to mess things up with McKenna, but IMO he is doing great with her.

There was a little drama, all caused by McKenna and Knox’s insecurities, but I think it was all needed, for them both to mature, to rethink about their feelings and to reassure their relationship.

The ending was so shocking, almost heartbreaking, but I think I know what is happening. I can’t wait to start the last book of the trilogy.

Sin Amazon

SYNOPSIS

Charlie’s first love is perfect. He’s kindhearted, the sex is great, and he only wants her despite the spotlight that brings him fame. Her life is wonderful, filled with purpose and cushioned by the man of her dreams.

Something is wrong here.

Her instincts are kicking in, telling her that Slade isn’t the man she thinks he is, but her heart is at war. She loves him, despite the attraction that sparks between her and Nate, the lonely, magnetic man who has popped into her life solely to piss her off. Slade loves her, despite the bright cameras and hot women and the ongoing pressure to succeed.

Doesn’t he love her?

Slade’s getting closer to Charlie’s new friend, a girl who blushes in his presence and changes face as soon as he leaves. Reagan seems sweet and everyone tells Charlie she’s adorable, cute…innocent as an angel. But Charlie’s starting to see her differently. Problem is, no one believes her.

Simple jealousy, or a warning of what’s to come?

Someone’s plotting a murder, and its execution hinges on Charlie’s choice. If she turns the wrong way, ignores the right signals, and chooses the wrong man, well…

The ultimate sin will result.

REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW: 4 STARS

The third part of The Snapped Series was really amazing. I totally enjoyed reading it, getting to know what was next to Charlie and her relationship with Slade and what was going to happen with Reagan, Nate and Lara was really great and now that I’ve finished this installment of the serials, I need the next one now!

I like Charlie, she’s smart, sweet, loving, caring, a good friend. I totally understand her suspicious about Reagan, and sadly nobody believes her. Thank God she finally uncover all Reagan’s evil intentions but sadly, that revelation brought a broken friendship with Lara. I didn’t like Lara’s reaction after finding out about Reagan’s actions toward Charlie. *shakes head*

The situation with Nate was almost out of control. I liked that despite Charlie has an attraction for Nate, she stayed in her place as Slade’s girlfriend and she is still loyal to him.

The ending was shocking. Really intense.

Bring me the next please. ASAP.

Book #1: SNAPPED

Snapped Amazon

This series contains feelings after sex, good girls staying good (unless they don’t want to), good boys turning bad, great friends flipping sides, close lovers falling backwards, sassy mouths, stubborn jackasses, and a fight for the one, all in the name of f*cked up love.

But whose love is twisted?

In nine weeks Charlie Miller’s life goes from high-rolling perfection to a crypt of sin. All it takes is one night, one blade, and her boyfriend, best friend and new friends all either end up as suspects or dead.

Nate Westcott, a pierced, tattooed, charismatic lawyer, is a man she can’t have—but a seductive danger she can’t ignore. He’s cocky, infuriating, brilliant and wrong, yet he makes her question whether she really is the good girl she wants to be or more like the selfish killer everyone thinks she is.

And her body wants him in ways she’s not supposed to crave.

As the weeks close in, cracks start forming in her everyday world of pro football golden boys, law school domination and New York City nightlife. Everyone she cares about is at risk because one of them doesn’t love Charlie back. In fact, they want her out of the way. Disposed of. Set up.

One more step, and all Charlie has to do is fall through.

Week 1 starts now.

AUTHOR

Ketley Allison began her career by writing books as birthday presents for her friends (with her friend as the main character and opposite a super sexy lead, of course) before ending it in order to walk down a path she thought she was supposed to follow.

The writing bug never left her—and, in fact, would often bleed into the official papers she was supposed to write—so now Ketley’s putting down her suit and finally following her dream. While her friends are no longer the stars of her books, she still throws in bits and pieces of them into each and every one of her characters.

As a result, her books tend to focus a lot on friendships as well as love, because let’s be honest, friends are what really get you through—especially when your epic love turns into epic heartbreak.

Ketley’s debut indie ebook, DARK SOULS, the first in the Dark Souls Series, is available on Amazon right here and Barnes & Noble.

ENTWINED, Book II in the Dark Souls Series, is also available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
