Virtual Book Tour Life on Fire by Jenetta M. Bradley and Karen D. Bradley #newrelease #fiction #fridayfinds

 Title: Life On Fire
Genre: Fiction

Author: Jenetta M Bradley
About the Author

Chicago natives, Jenetta and Karen Bradley, are sisters and authors. Jenetta has always had a love for writing and has written and published five fictional books. She also post weekly updates to The SSMD, her online, interactive fictional story of a relationship advisor helping the Single, Shacking, Married, and Divorced (SSMD) while dealing with her own life’s ups and downs.
Her younger sister, Karen, didn’t start off sharing the love of writing. While being a creative mind, English and Grammar were never her strongest subjects. As life would have it, her weakest link would become her saving grace in life. It was during college she wrote her first book to help her cope with the death of her father, the upheaval of emotions, and her changing family dynamics. Writing fiction soon became one of her favorite forms of therapy.

About the book


Brooklyn Saunders' life is set ablaze when her ex, Dante Nines, and a newly single friend, Hunter Torres, vie for the number one spot in her heart. Unknowingly, Dante brings trouble to her door causing their personal and professional lives to collide in the worst way. The entanglement unleashes a danger that will have both of the men she loves fighting to keep her safe. Will Brooklyn survive the chaos threatening to destroy her very existence? And if she does, who will she choose?

 Character Interview

Q. Please tell the readers who are the main characters?

·         Brooklyn is a head-strong senior analyst with an eclectic group of friends
·         Dante is Brooklyn’s ex whose work at an elite investigation firm causes a few challenges in his personal life
·         Hunter is a club owner and an entrepreneur with ties to people who don’t always abide by the law
·         Liang is Dante’s partner who is fighting demons from her past

QWhat or is there conflict in the story?

Brooklyn loves both Dante and Hunter for different reasons. Two good men who love her enough to work together to keep her safe when trouble finds her.

Q. Which characters in “are you most like?

Keep in mind I co-wrote Life on Fire with my sister Karen. When I think of Brooklyn the main character, head-strong, full of swagger as she sashays around in high heels (something I’ve never mastered) I think of Karen.

For me, I think I’m more like Liang, Dante’s partner who has a quieter fierceness, but is just as head strong. There’s a part in the book where Brooklyn and Liang are about to go toe to toe. Brooklyn was ready to jump obstacles to get to Liang and Liang was waiting in the cut ready for the fight. That scene reminds me of how my sister and I approach challenges, my sister is going to jump at it and take them down by the throat. I’m going to wait in the cut and swipe their feet from under them. Either way they are going down.

Q. Take us inside “your book” What are two major events
taking place?

Brooklyn is torn between trying to reunite with her ex, Dante, or pursue something new with her newly single friend, Hunter. In the midst of this, she is pulled into the middle of a deranged criminal’s twisted plan and faces losing her life.

Q. Are your characters from the portrayal of real people?
The characters are a blend of real people’s personality traits but never a portrayal of one specific individual.

Q. Describe each character in three words?

Brooklyn – stubborn, smart and sassy
Hunter – loving, personable and determined
Dante – strong, caring and protective
Liang – loyal, focused and resourceful

Q. If your book became a movie who would play the characters?

If Life on Fire became a movie, casting Brooklyn would be the most challenging. For Dante, it would either be Omari Hardwick or LL Cool J. Liang would be Ming-Wa Wen and Hunter would be played by either Laz Alonso or Christian Keyes.

Q.  Your lead characters have “baggage” that keeps them from wanting to pursue a new relationship. Do you think sometimes we let our past get in the way of what God has planned for our futures?

The past always has the potential to get in the way of God’s plans. We can become so focus on the past that we can’t see what God has laid out for the future. The fear of being hurt or letting go of things and people whose season has ended sometimes prevents us from pursuing something new and accepting God’s plans. We need to recognize when the baggage of the past is weighing us down and tripping us up and let go and let God do His thing.

Q. How do you see yourself in your character’s story, if at all?

When you talk in the general sense of living, we all are faced with being indecisive and unable to clearly see what’s best for us at some point in time. I’ve never been torn between two loves, but I have been torn between two job opportunities.

One Delicate Night by Joy Avery, Book Blast and Goodie Bag Giveaway #newrelease #contemporaryromance #fridayfinds


Enter to win One Delicate Night Goodie Bag

 One Delicate Night
Publication Date: 7-11-2015
Genre: Contemporary romance

Author: Joy Avery



Can one night lead to forever?

Kassidy Monroe has spent far too many nights alone. But could she actually go through with a one-night stand? No! At least, that’s her answer until her eyes settle on him—tall, dark, and ultra-mysterious behind a black and platinum mask that makes him even more appealing. It’s lust at first sight, but how far is she willing to go with a man she’s just met?
Jaxon Prescott has always gone after what he wants. And he wants her—the sexy vixen in the feather mask. Something about her calls to him, and he’s all too willing to answer. An invitation to his hotel suite was supposed to be for a night she wouldn’t soon forget, but somehow the tables turn. He never imagines he’d be the one constantly reliving their time together.

One need. One night. One unforeseen outcome.



Joy Avery is a contemporary romance author who loves watching her imaginary friends fall in love. When not crafting her next love story, she enjoys reading, spending time with the family, playing with her two dogs, and cake decorating.
She’s the author of the novels Smoke in the Citi, His Until Sunrise (book 1 in the Indigo Falls series), Cupid’s Error-a Valentine’s novella, and His Ultimate Desire (book 2 in the Indigo Falls series).

Then her best friend intervenes—gifting her a night of dinner and dancing with a Cupid’s Arrow escort. What could be the harm? Though Cupid’s Arrow is known for matches made in heaven, she’s not looking for a love connection. Then she meets her Cupid’s Fellow and everything changes.

Business mogul Weston Henshaw doesn’t need Cupid’s Arrow to get a Valentine’s Day companion, but Cupid’s Arrow needs him. Seems his sister’s charity event has done far better than anticipated. Only problem…a shortage of eligible bachelors to pamper all of the lonely hearts. When he agrees to be bait for an evening, he never imagines meeting the one woman who makes him wish the night would never end.
An error by Cupid’s places Danica and Weston on a road to destiny, but will they maintain the course?

Between Love & Hate by ALTonya Washington #newrelease #fiction

Cahlir Decker and Bizay Donneeter had an extraordinary involvement that resulted in more than either of them ever intended. Their connection went deeper than the sexual chemistry that sizzled to life between the powerful corporate consultant and the lingerie entrepreneur. At least, that was what Biz thought until their enjoyable time together ended when she woke one morning to an empty bed and no sign of Cahlir. Biz refused to acknowledge how deeply the man had wounded her-how deeply her feelings for him had grown in the short span of time they had known each other. She was angry and hurt and leaned on a fair amount of hate to survive. Not a bad plan until she received word that her family’s advertising firm was in trouble and that Cahlir was its new owner.
Biz didn’t have time to let fear register over the unexpected turn of events.
Fear however, did eventually find its way to the forefront of her mind as did a healthy dose of suspicion. Did Cahlir know that she’d left San Diego pregnant with their child? What would he do when he realized she’d had their daughter and had kept her from him for four years?


Bizay Donneeter ladled another generous helping of Potato soup into her bowl and smiled. God, this is Heaven, she thought. She’d debated on whether she would attend the party given by her friend Carla Decker. Now she was glad she had chosen to attend. The gathering was beyond impressive. Still, it was the delicious soup that impressed her most.
Biz decided not to leave her position by the table, since she planned on polishing off the entire tureen. Despite the huge bowl in her hand, she was still an enticing vision. The ankle-length shimmery beige evening gown fit her like a second skin. Besides complimenting her dark-chocolate complexion, the sexy creation was deceptively designed to make an admirer think he was seeing more than he actually was. The dress did that and more. The spaghetti straps slid partially off her shoulders, while the snug bodice emphasized her ample bosom. There, the material stopped and showed off a toned stomach. Multiple straps crossed over her shoulders, connecting at the small of her back to fall into a long, clinging skirt.
With a minute shake of her shoulder-length waves, Biz’s warm brown eyes scanned the room, surveying the other guests in attendance. She was glad Carla had been thoughtful enough to invite her. Biz had already been in California a week opening her second lingerie store. There hadn’t been much time for rest, but the party was proving to be the perfect way to wind down.
Carla Decker mingled through the large crowd, checking on her other guests. She had thrown the gathering in an attempt to draw her brother out of his shell. Unfortunately, there was no trace of the guest of honor. After a while, something told her to check the balconies. She prayed he had not left without telling her, and was about to give up the search, when she spotted him on the most secluded balcony.
Cahlir?” She called, walking up behind him and sliding her arms around his waist. “Baby, what are you doing out here?”

Cahlir Decker shrugged wide shoulders while offering an absent shake of his head. “Just needed to get some air,” His extraordinary silver eyes stared out over the lawn.
Carla stepped around to face her brother and frowned. “Listen you, if the balcony is where you want to spend the rest of the party, that’s fine. But, I’ve got plenty of female friends who’d love to be out here with you. That’s why I threw this party, you knucklehead.”
Cahlir turned his intense gaze toward his sister and smiled. Carla was older by four years, but he had always been much bigger. Still, the woman could be a formidable bully when she put her mind to it. Cahlir would not hold that against her, though. He knew she had her reasons.
Of course, that didn’t stop him from making one last attempt at not having to go back to the party. “Listen Lady, I’m fine. I just don’t care to mingle right now.” He told her.
“Oh, you don’t care to mingle right now?” Carla repeated in a whisper. “Well, I’m not having’ it. Now you get your cute butt back inside and at least act like you’re having a good time.
All you have to do is stand there and the women will fall at your feet.” Carla assured him, before she poked his chest and walked away.

Rescued by Love by Kendra Y. Adama, Virtual Book Tour #newrelease #christian #nonfiction #fridayfinds

Bestselling Author | Empowerment Speaker | Minister |
Certified Christian Counselor and Mentor

Kendra Y. Adams was born in Duncan, Oklahoma, but raised in Houston, Texas. She is a wife, mother, administrator, and founder, alongside her husband, of Heaven on Earth Marriage Ministry, a community-based ministry that encourages, enlightens and empowers marriages.
She is a minister and teacher of the gospel, certified Christian counselor and mentor. With more than twenty years in ministry, Kendra loves to serve and has held various leadership positions in the area of women’s ministry, youth, music and marriage ministry. She is also a contributor to two published books.

Kendra is an encourager and a firm believer in marriage maintenance and mentoring. She and her husband are passionate about empowering couples with tools to be successful in their marriage. In addition, Kendra has a heart for teen moms. Because of her life experience, she stands as an encouragement to let them know that God loves them and has a plan and purpose for their lives.

Kendra, tell us about your book?

Rescued by Love is a “testament” of God’s Love. I really prefer not to call it an autobiography because although the book talks about my life experiences, the prevailing message I want to be heard is that God’s Love can deliver you out of any situation or any dark area in your life.

In the beginning of the book, I talk about the power of a testimony....Growing up we use to have what we called “Testimony Service”. In this service (which would sometimes go for hours), we testified about what God had done for us so that #1) It could give glory to God #2) It could be an encouragement to somebody else.
When I wrote this book, I had those 2 things in mind.. Giving glory to God & encouraging somebody else who may be in a place in their lives where they feel discouraged and like nobody loves them – not even God.

I believe people are looking for transparency and we need to get back to sharing out story. Testimonies are effective and they are powerful. That’s what witnessing is about. Not necessarily throwing a ton of scriptures at somebody, but simply sharing what Jesus did for you ….. and in that – you can still share the word of God and how the word and the demonstration of Christ’s love changed your life.

Secondly, in this book I make reference to God’s Unconditional, Unending and Unfailing Love. These are the characteristics of “the God kind of love” that I’ve personally experienced.

Unconditional love – Romans 5:8 But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. It doesn’t mean that God loves everything we do, but rather His love for us is not like man’s … it doesn’t fluctuate - meaning He doesn’t care more for us when we please Him or less when we have failed or sinned against Him. He died on the cross so that EVERYONE could be redeemed and experience eternal life. His love for us is so pure, compassionate, intense and powerful that He loves us even when don’t love ourselves. The very essence of who He is - is Love.

Unending love – 1 Chronicles 16:34 NIV Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. We have a covenant of Love. His love is unending .. It’s everlasting.
Unfailing love – Psalm 48:9 NIV Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. Psalm 107:8 NIV Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men. God’s love is unfailing. He never stops loving us. There is nothing we can do to make God stop loving us. We don’t have to wonder about his Love. His love never fails.

How did you come up with idea for this book?

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve shared my testimony and someone has said that needs to be in a book. It just so happens that I love to write …. God begin to give a desire to write my story.

He gave me the title of this book about 3 years ago, but I didn't attempt to start writing this book until the beginning of last year ... And after getting only a couple of chapters drafted, this book went into what I call a paralyzed state (some people call it writers block) whatever it was, I couldn't compose in writing what needed to be said in this book.

On 9/2/14, I was laid off my job and it wasn't even a month later that this book was birthed.

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

Once I stepped into the “season” to write this book and God begin speaking to me, it was easy to write. I found myself in a writing marathon and completed the book in two days. Of course we’ve been editing the book and tweeking here and there, but for the most part, the book was birthed in two days which was amazing to me.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

1) I don’t care how ugly your past or present situation is, God can take it and use it for His glory if you allow Him to.
2) Unless hurt is healed, it will manifest negatively in your life.
3) Forgive so that you can be free to live – release those who have wronged you and allow God to heal you.
4) God is a God of restoration

Who are your favorite authors?

Geesh! So many … but I would have to say Joyce Meyer and Dr Myles Munroe top the list.

What book(s) are you reading now?

When All Hell Breaks Loose, facing your fiery trials with Faith by Richard Roberts

The Source of My Strength by Charles Stanley
