[Book Tour, REVIEW & Giveaway] Chasing Morgan by Jennifer Ryan




Chasing Morgan

By Jennifer Ryan


FBI agent Tyler Reed trusts only facts and evidence, until the day a beautiful blonde delivers a life-saving warning … based on nothing more than a vision. Five years later, the mysterious Morgan Standish has used her talents to help Tyler and the FBI bring down countless criminals. Still, Tyler knows next to nothing about her. She contacts him by phone—and by some sort of psychic connection he’s not prepared to admit exists—but has not shown herself once. Until now. Morgan’s gift may let her see things others can’t, but it comes at a price. Getting too close to anyone is dangerous, especially the gorgeous, moody Special Agent Reed. For she’s seen the future: if they meet again too soon, an innocent could be lost. But when Tyler’s latest case forces Morgan out of hiding, she is the one thrust into the path of a serial killer, the Psychic Slayer, who will stop at nothing to protect the secrets only Morgan can see.

My Review: 

4.6 Star Review – Chasing Morgan

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Jennifer.  This book includes passion, laughs, heartache, psychics and murders. 

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books first.

Saved by the Rancher (The Hunted #1)
Lucky Like Us (The Hunted #2) 
The Right Bride (The Hunted #3) 

FBI Agent Tyler Reed has been working with a psychic for the last 5 years via phone calls.  Before that he really didn’t believe in anything that he could see.  When a woman came up to him and gave him information that lead him to be able to save his sister’s life he started to believe.    

That was the last time he saw Morgan Standish in the flesh.  Morgan has been helping Tyler & his partner Sam since that day on their cases.  She is in Tyler’s head and can sometimes talk directly to him in his mind.  If he needs her he thinks about her and she will call him.  He vents all his problems to her and she listens.  All Morgan has asked of him in all the years is that it never get out that she is helping him.


When a detective who is mad about the FBI & Morgan solving his case tells the press Tyler and a psychic named Morgan were working together all hell breaks loose.  Tyler can feel Morgan scream and pull away from him.  He feels so empty without her presence that he has felt for the last 5 years.  Since Tyler has only ever received contact via the phone from Morgan he has no idea where she is and how to contact her.


Her father calls and tells Tyler her last name which they had not known before and asks where she is.  After they run checks on him they find out he has been in prison and holds Morgan responsible for him being there.  Even with her name they can’t find her.


When other psychic’s in the town are being murdered they try even harder to contact her.  With every new murder they know the killer wants Morgan as he thinks she can see all that he has done.  He wants to kill her last but he must kill all the others so they can’t see his past evil deeds.


Morgan has been living as Matt’s (Sam’s twin brother; Sam) neighbor for the past two years.  She has sworn him to secrecy about her location and not telling Tyler or Sam.      After losing her connection with Tyler she has no idea until Matt tells her that there is a killer killing the off the psychic’s. 


She comes to town to help Sam and Tyler.  But will Tyler accept her help?  Can she save the next psychic from the killer?  While she is helping out the FBI will her father find her?  What exactly is in Morgan’s past that Tyler didn’t know because he never asked?


Tyler is sweet but misguided in his relationships.  He is all about setting down but at what cost?  Morgan is a sweet woman.  When she has a vision it drains her and leaves her exhausted.  As she helps out more and more what cost is it putting on her mentally and physically?

Without hesitation, she gets the man out of harm’s way before they’re run down.

Unwittingly, Elizabeth has put herself in the path of a serial murderer, and as the only one who can identify the FBI’s Silver Fox Killer, she’s ended up in the hospital with a target on her back.

All that stands between her and death is Special Agent Sam Turner. Against his better judgment, Sam gets emotionally involved, determined to take down the double threat against Elizabeth—an ex desperate to get her back, despite a restraining order, and a psychopath bent on silencing her before she can identify him.

Will he find out in time that Shelly’s lying and Marti’s the one who’s actually carrying his child? It’ll come down to the day of his wedding. After choosing Shelly over Marti at every turn, will he convince Marti she’s his world and the only woman he wants?

[Book Blitz & Giveaways] Fearsome by S.A. Wolfe

Fearsome by S.A. Wolfe
Publication date: October 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


Jessica Channing’s big city life should be more exciting than sixty-hour work weeks and popcorn nights with her girlfriends, but it’s not. She has worked hard fulfilling her role as a child prodigy and graduating college years before her peers. She’s the good girl, the brilliant girl.

Unfortunately, she’s also the dateless young woman.

That all changes with one phone call. Jess’s rigid, predictable life upends when she must visit a small, obscure town to deal with a relative’s death. This isn’t just any little speck of a town, though. Long lost memories come crashing down on Jess’s world when two men, the Blackard brothers, seem to lure her in.

Dylan is cover model handsome, and pursues Jess the minute she comes to town. Then there is tall, dark and gorgeous Carson, who hides his own secrets behind his hardened reserve.

For someone who has been governed by her own obsessive behaviors and fears, Jess lets her guard down and jumps at the opportunity to have an affair with a man she actually finds attractive for a change.

There’s just one problem. Jess discovers that she can’t have a simple romantic fling because true passion does indeed come with some very big strings attached to it. She will have to own up to her own truths about love and face the two extraordinary men; both troubled in their own ways and both determined to have her.

Dylan’s reaction is evident. I’m at the end of the hall in the kitchen doorway when Carson answers the door and Dylan’s face drops. “What the fuck are you doing here?”

“Hi, brother,” Carson greets him with a smugness in his voice. “I was working on the kitchen and thought I’d stay for dinner. I see you’re making your eggplant parm. Wouldn’t want to miss that.” He holds the door open for Dylan who storms through with two bottles of wine in each hand.

“Oh, fuck you,” Dylan snaps and head towards me. He kisses me on the cheek. “Hi. So we’ve got company.” He shakes his head at me.

“Here, let me open the wine.” Carson squeezes between Dylan and me, grabbing the bottles. “You cook. Jess and I will drink this fine vino you’ve brought us.”

“I didn’t bring it for you,” Dylan counters.

Carson studies the wine label and raises his eyebrows. “You’ve dropped an impressive little bundle on these two gems. Can’t wait to drink it.”

Dylan ignores him and makes his way into the kitchen where he begins to pull items out of the fridge along with pots and pans from the cupboards. I’m caught in the middle of some brotherly group dynamic that is foreign to me, so I stay out of it and keep quiet.

Carson uncorks a bottle of wine with a switchblade he pulls out of his pocket. I don’t know whether to be unnerved or impressed that he carries a knife and knows how to open a bottle of wine with it. He makes one slice around the seal, thuds the base of the bottle against one of the vertical beams along the wall and then pulls the cork out with his teeth. I’ve never seen anything like it. He looks even sexier merely by doing that little move. His hands are full with the bottle in one hand and the knife and cork in the other, so he pulls a kitchen chair out with his foot.

“Have a seat, milady, and join me in a glass of the grape,” he mimics a thick Scottish brogue.

“Oh, please,” Dylan says over his shoulder as he slams pans on the range.

I laugh and sit down. Carson smiles at me and pours a tiny amount of the wine into a juice glass for me. I take a little sip and nod approvingly. I know nothing about wine.

Tell Me When by Stina Lindenblatt
Published by: Carina Press (HQN)
Publication date: January 20th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


Amber Scott should be enjoying life as a college freshman. She should be pursuing her dream of becoming a veterinarian. She should be working hard to make sense of her precalculus math class.

She shouldn’t be waking up her college roommate with screaming nightmares. She shouldn’t be flashing back, reliving the three weeks of hell she barely survived last year. And she definitely shouldn’t be spending time with sexy player Marcus Reid.

But engineering student Marcus is the only one keeping Amber from failing her math course, so she grudgingly lets him into her life. She never expects the king of hookups will share his painful past. Or that she’ll tell him her secrets in return, opening up and trusting him in a way she thought she’d never be able to again.

When their fragile future together is threatened by a stalker Amber thought was locked away for good, Marcus is determined to protect her. And Amber is determined to protect Marcus…even if that means pushing him away.

[Cover Reveal] Halfway Hidden by Carrie Elks

Halfway Hidden          by Carrie Elks
Publication date: November 2013
Genres: Erotica, Romance

designed by Mayhem Cover Creations


When fear mixes with desire, who can you trust?

Rachel Stone is stuck, contemplating that very question. Spending her time as a bartender in an isolated West Virginia town, she hides behind dark hair and an assumed name. She exists from day to day, trying not to let her past overwhelm her.

When a tall stranger walks into the bar at closing time, her attempts at hiding turn to dust. Muscled and intense, he is attractive enough for Rachel to ignore her instincts and listen to her baser desires. As a storm brews in the skies of West Virginia, confusion builds in Rachel’s mind. What begins as flirtation explodes into a darker, more primal passion, leading her to question everything she thought she knew.

While snow blankets the outside world, they are forced to remain inside, confronting their demons and the sizzling attraction between them. Submitting to their urges is easy; learning who to trust is anything but.

Advisory: This novella contains references to past abuse, and rough consensual sex.
