I had choices, we all do, the ones that I made changed everything. Before I knew it, the lines of right and wrong began to blur and I was consumed so deeply that I couldn't see a way out even if I wanted to. The path I chose is not for the faint of heart, it isn't always sweet, but it's real. What happens when all the things you have always wanted suddenly aren't all you want anymore? What do you do when the forbidden screams your name and both parts of your life become as vital as the air you breathe? You make a choice. This is my story.

Altered State Dividers Synopsis
Beauty lies in the truth.
A wife with a thirst for revenge desperately trying to save her marriage while hiding in the shadows of her memories... A woman with questionable intentions, a sketchy past and a taste for unavailable men... A husband in love with his wife, a man mesmerized by his mistress, a willing hostage caught between two obsessive women.
A murderer, a liar and a cheater. You think you know which one is which, but nothing is as it seems. After all, everyone wears a mask. Some are just better at hiding the truth than others.
Lies will be exposed. Truths revealed. Blood shed. All in the name of something far more potent than love and much more toxic.

Altered State AUTHOR BIO
Ella Dominguez
A full-time mom and healthcare worker, Ella was born and raised in a sexually repressed, strict Christian household in the bible belt of the USA. This upbringing and repression contributed to her wicked imagination and writing has been her only outlet for her sexual fantasies. Finally at the ripe and sexually primed age of forty, she mustered up enough courage to share her naughty thoughts and put pen to paper. I sincerely hope to find her niche in writing erotica in all forms, be it romance or paranormal.
“I don't consider myself an author. I consider myself an avid reader above all else, and someone who simply writes the stories that the characters in my head tell me to.” - Ella Dominguez

*Blog Tour* My Soul to Wake: Stain by Tara Oakes

*** Warning: this novel is intended for those over 18 years of age due to its erotic nature and mature content. ***
True love.
These are the things of legend. Unexplained, some even say impossible, but nonetheless prevalent in stories and tales from all cultures and in every land from the beginning of time. What if there is something to it? What if there is an explanation behind the mysteries and bedtime stories? Something beyond words?
She was taken from him in the cruelest way... condemned, sentenced and punished out of fear of the unknown. How is he supposed to live without her? How can he go on knowing that in this life, they will never be one again? There's only one thing to do... only one option that will bring them together again.
Leah is taken on a weekend excursion with her best girlfriends to let loose, relax and have a little fun. What harm is there in a little vacation? It's not like the legends, the haunted history of the place can scare them away. It's all harmless fun.
Or so she thought.
Something seems familiar about the town. The trees, the winds, the feel of everything. Her ever present nightmares have become more intense within the limits of the old historical setting. She's prepared to write off the whole trip as nothing more than a case of her mind running away with the sensationalized magic here. When she meets a handsome stranger who's eager to know her in a way no one else can, she begins to think there just may be something more to this place, something more to him.
Will has been waiting, biding his time, and praying that she'll come back. He's broken the natural order of things to possibly find her again, weaving their way through the years until they can be together again. He knows he may never find her, but he can't risk not trying. This place calls to her, just as it did to him. It will bring her back home. It will bring her back to him.
What's 300 years when it comes to true love? He's prepared to wait an eternity if he has to, just to see her, hold her, make her his and to help her remember what was stolen from them so long ago. He’ll stop at nothing to make her remember who she is, the power she possesses, and the love they swore to each other.
I received a copy of this story for an honest review.

Growing up one of my favorite books was The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare. In college on of my favorite conversations with a professor was about The Crucible by Arthur Miller. Something about The Salem With Trials has always interested me so when I saw the blurb for My Soul to Wake - Stain I knew I would enjoy it, I just didn't know how much I would love it. Part second chance romance, part moving flash of history this story just sucked me in and kept me riveted.

Painful dreams of a horrific death hundreds of years in the past have haunted Amelia her entire life. She's learned how to play pretend, to try to be "normal." A girls trip to Salem, Massachusetts awakens something in her that forces her to stop pretending. As flashes of a life forgotten intensify, Amelia meets handsome and charming Will. The pair are drawn together and Will offers to help Amelia learn about the ghosts of Old Salem that my have ties to her frightening dreams. Dark forces gather around the pair as Amelia must question Will's motives and her own sanity. 

What I Loved: Author Tara Oakes does a beautiful job of balancing past and present in My Soul to Wake. Each time period in the story felt equally as important. Also the connection between Amelia and Will is so strong and vivid that even though the story has a fairly quick timeline in the present day, I completely bought the pair as destined soul mates. My Soul to Wake - Stain sets nicely sets up an interesting series without ending with a cliffhanger.

What I Didn't Love: My Soul to Wake is told from Amelia's POV. Overall I loved seeing the story through her eyes but I finished the story wishing I knew a little bit more about Will's life before the pair connected. Hopefully we'll get a little more insight in the next book in the series.

Favorite Quotes:

"She wants to make sure I know that Will has no room for me. She's taking up all the space she thinks he has for a woman in his life. Bitch."
"I know he has faith. Faith that our love will see us through these trying and dangerous times to bring us to each other on the far side of it."
"The truth sings, calls to bring the two halves together. The song is old, but it will be heard again."

My Soul to Wake - Stain is a winning paranormal romance that captivated me from start to finish and I recommend it without reservation. My Soul to Wake Book Two - Sister will be released Fall 2015. I can't wait for more Amelia and Will.

Happy reading.

Tara is a thirty something newbie author from Long Island, New York. She's a voracious reader, a passionate writer and obsessive junk T.V. aficionado. When she's not doing one of those three things she is attempting to garden, hanging with her hubby or partaking in some retail therapy. She enjoys connecting with her readers and is having a blast entering into this new world of publishing.

I was feeling pissy.
Rome could tell, I knew, but thankfully, he didn’t try to distract me or talk me out of it. It wouldn’t have worked anyway. Sometimes a guy just felt pissed.
Okay. Sometimes I just felt pissed.
I hefted the last of the girls’ shit down the stairs and out into the driveway. Why women needed so much stuff I had no idea. I mean, hell, they walked around in tiny-ass bikinis all week, not like they needed the fifty pounds of crap they brought with them. Except for Rim, of course. She had one bag, one full-coverage swimsuit, and one thankful big brother.
“That everything?” Romeo asked when Trent and I handed over the last of the haul.
“I hope the hell so,” I replied.
Trent snickered. “Dude, I don’t even want to know what’s in those bags.”
Rimmel came down the steps with a list in her hand and stopped beside me. I glanced down to see the checklist the rental company left of all the things that needed to be taken care of before we left. “Everything is done,” she stated.
I noted the neat checkmarks beside each item and smiled. “Only you would find homework on spring break.”
She elbowed me in the gut, and I made a sound like it hurt. It didn’t, but I didn’t want to make her feel bad. It wasn’t her fault she was harmless as a fly.
“Sweet. Let’s go, then. The airport is waiting,” Romeo said.
Trent glanced at the red convertible. “You sure we’re all gonna fit in there?”
“Like sardines in a can,” I muttered.
“We’ll make it work,” Romeo said.
“Easy for you to say. You’re driving,” I cracked.
He gave me the finger.
“I’ll sit in the back because I’m smaller. One of you guys can take the front,” Rimmel offered.
Technically, we had one person too many for the car. However, instead of calling a cab or renting anything else, we were just going to put the extra person in the back. It was illegal, but who the hell cared?
Missy and Ivy came out the door and started down the steps. Ivy was moving slow and Missy kept her pace, holding her arm like she was an old lady with a broken hip.
“Move your ass, Blondie!” I yelled. “We’re gonna miss our flight.”
“Braeden!” Rimmel scolded me. “She’s hurt.”
I grunted. “It takes a lot more than a bottle cap to take that one down.”
From the stairs, Ivy told me to go suck an egg. I looked back at Rimmel and lifted an eyebrow. “She’s so delicate.”
Rimmel glared at me, and I knew I was about to get a lecture. God help me. If any other woman tried to lecture me, I’d tell ‘em to piss off. But Rim was different. She’d somehow gotten her way in my heart and made a place there. I was really good at keeping women out of there, but this was different. This wasn’t a romantic type of love; it was family. She was family.
In my pocket, my cell rang. “Sorry, sis, I gotta take this,” I said, trying to sound so sad I would miss her instructions (okay, I didn’t sound sad at all) and pulled it out.
It was my mom.
“Mom,” I answered and turned away from the group.
“Hi, Braeden, honey,” she said. “I’m just calling to make sure everything is still on schedule with your flight home.”
I was twenty-one years old and my mom still called to check up on me. She’d probably still do it when I turned fifty. “We’re heading to the airport now, Mom. Everything’s good.”
“Okay, well, you boys have a safe flight. And Rimmel, too.”
“Will do.”
I expected her to say her usual good-bye and end the call. But she hesitated.
“Mom?” I intoned. “Is something wrong?”
“Oh, no,” she laughed, but it was strained. “I just miss you is all.”
“I’ll stop by once I get settled back on campus.” Or maybe I’d just swing by on the way from the airport. I didn’t like to think of her sitting around worrying about me. Or being lonely.
She’d wanted me to live at home when I went to college, and I did freshman year, but I wanted to live in the dorm. I wanted a little more freedom, some space that was just mine. So I moved on campus. Sometimes I felt bad about it.
“I’ll look forward to it,” Mom said, breaking into my thoughts.
“Cool. I gotta go or we’ll be late. I’ll call you when we land.” I turned back to everyone. Trent was helping Ivy into the car, his hand on the small of her back.
I shoved the phone back into my pocket and went to the car. Trent was getting ready to squeeze himself in the backseat with the girls.
“You want the front, dude?” I asked.
“Nah, you can take it,” he replied.
I slid into the front and spun the hat on my head so it wasn’t backward anymore and then pulled it low on my forehead. The inside of this car felt like a pair of jeans with too much ass in them.
I ignored the chattering of everyone in the back as Romeo pulled away from the house and onto the main road. The vacay had been a fun time. And last night…
Well, I wasn’t going to think about that anymore.
Ten minutes down the road, a bare foot came up between the seats and rested on the center console between Rome and me. I glanced over and caught a flash of red polished toes and the edge of a Band-Aid.
“Your feet stink,” I snapped.
“Who sprinkled the bitch in your coffee this morning?” Ivy retorted.
I sat up, leaned around the seat, and stared at her from beneath my hat. She was in the middle with Missy, poor Rim squished up against the door, and Trent was on the other side of Ivy. Her hair was falling around her shoulders and her arms were crossed over her chest.
I felt our eyes connect; even with my hat partially blocking my gaze, my eyes still found a way to fix on hers. A shock of awareness jolted me, like a shot of tequila that lit a fire all the way from my throat to my stomach and then fanned out to coat my limbs.
Ivy’s teeth sank into her lower lip, and I had an acute memory of sucking it into my mouth and licking over it with my tongue.
There was no way she could know what I was thinking. I gave not one indication. Still, her body tensed and she pulled back her foot, withdrawing as far away from me as she could.


The Hashtag Series #4

It’s all about the #selfie.

She was the one girl I never wanted.

Until I had her.

One night.

One mistake.

Something we both wanted to forget.

I got rid of the proof. The one piece of evidence that could remind us both.

At least I thought I did.

When it shows up on the school Buzzfeed rumors fly. Friendships are tested and the feels get real.

I don’t do relationships. I don’t open my heart.

Especially for a girl everyone knows I hate.

What happens at spring break, stays at spring break.

Until it follows you home.
