There are always things in a marriage that cause the couple to place distance between each other. But, what happens when you try to fix that marriage, you end up having to try and save yourself and your friends instead?

Josh is trying to fix his marriage all because he let other things come between him and his precious wife. The closer he comes to making things right with her, he finds someone is out to stop him from not only fixing his marriage, but continuing to live all together—someone who is close to him, but only for the simple purpose of making sure that Josh isn’t caught off guard. His life is in danger and so are the lives of his best friends. He’ll stop at nothing to get his marriage back to how it was before, even if it means using a little violence.

**Contains some adult situations and violence as well as language.**

excerpt 2

Josh’s blood boiled with each word that came out of Logan’s mouth. When he mentioned Clarisse, Josh snapped. Standing up, he slammed his hands on the table. “Get. Up.” He managed to grit out.
“Excuse me? I’m the one with the gun,” as if to prove his point, he waved the gun around.
“Put it down and face me like a man. You want this seat so bad, well prove it. Right now you’re only proving that you’re a coward.”
Two shots were fired and hit the wall behind Josh. Lunging at him, Josh knocked him and the chair to the floor. The gun fell from Logan’s grip and slid across the floor. While Logan was temporarily stunned, Josh began to pound his fists into Logan’s face. Each punch was harder than the last.
While Josh continued to punch Logan he gritted out words. “…for Steve…Jon….Matt….” he couldn’t see straight as blood began to coat his knuckles. Logan’s pleas for mercy were drowned out by the rage that was screaming in Josh’s ears. He’d put up with shit from Logan for so long that it had built up into this.runaway 2
Logan threw punches back at Josh but none of them seemed to find their target. Tears were streaming down his face as he gave up defending himself and covered his face with his arms trying to keep the blows to a part of his body that was more manageable pain wise. Grunts and strangled cries escaped his throat as he tried to push Josh off in between punches. Nothing seemed to be working for him. The more he fought back, the angrier Josh got and the harder his punches fell. Several bones in his face crunched as Josh’s fists continued to rain their fury down on him. When the one next to his eye cracked, he screamed at the top of his lungs.
Matt and Jon ran into the conference room and pulled Josh off Logan. As soon as Logan was free, he scrambled away and looked at Josh horrified. Tears were mixing with his blood that was running down his face. His left eye was swollen shut while the rest of his face was cut up from the sharpness of Josh’s knuckles and the various rings he wore.
As Josh examined his work, his breathing was erratic. Fury was still surging through his body and mixing with the adrenaline rush he’d gotten from attacking Logan without warning. All the anger that had built up over the past few months had been unlocked and unleashed on its intended target. When he’d heard bones crack and crunch under his fists, the demon that he’d suppressed inside had awoken and demanded more. He whispered the snide comments that Logan had made over the past few months as well as the words that he’d spoken against Clarisse.

I saw this cover and wanted to see what was behind the women in leather on a motorcycle. When I started to see these teasers and excerpts popping up on my news feed I knew I had to buy it when it immediately came out. This is a quick read and the price is great for all the magic the author will bring to you.

You are drawn in with a mixture of romance & paranormal. What do I mean by this? Well the author has managed to bring to you demons who has decided to leave their life style and come to earth and live as humans and whats best is that she has inputted real life situations  and added danger. Trust me when I say after you read this little book of surprises you will definitely be hooked and be wanting more from the author, I know I do.  I look forward to reading more from this amazing author and will be following her in the future.

I’m just like anyone else. I have everyday problems that never seem to go away and I bury myself in a good book when I need an escape. My second escape would be writing. I love the paranormal and everything I write seems to revolve around something paranormal. Some of my best ideas come from sitting and just talking to a friend (or two) and then they just pop up. Never underestimate the ability to get an idea from an everyday situation.

review by sue 2

The author has taken a book and turned it into a complete package. She truly amazed me because when I first started to read it I thought it was a love story with a little bit of something else. However, as the story falls into place the characters grabs you and you fall into their world. You right away know that Samantha has a past she runs away from and has found a place she believes is safe. The characters she meets from the place she settles all have their own personalities and even some are hilarious. I will have to say my favorite person in this book is Tyler because he is truly funny and outspoken. And Samantha has a very sassy  attitude that will keep you laughing when she starts off.

While the author gives you little breadcrumbs throughout the whole book, she definitely knows how to keep the suspense going until the end. And the author throws in a special surprise for the readers in the midst of the excitement, but you will have to read it in order to find this out. Even though Samantha tries her hardest you can’t fight love! Great job to the author! This was an enjoyable read and I think you should read it!

about the author 2pandora 2

Tiffany Toto was born February 11th, 1974 in Tucson, Arizona. She is the youngest of five children born to Westley and Patricia Botts. Her siblings are Tom, Tim, Trisha and Terese. Tiffany’s two children are eldest Miranda, and son Jacob. Tiffany has always loved creative writing and has written short stories in the past. She has an incredible love for animals and is a true advocate against animal abuse.

Tiffany is the Author of The Pandora Romance Series. First book of the series is “The Pandora Affair”, Second book “Pandora’s Soldiers” is currently being written.

I have been an avid reader of romance novels for years but they were always the same…just romance and drama, the sex was never enough to blow your mind and the drama…well, let’s just say there is more drama in my dreams. If you are lucky, there may be some suspense. I am one personality that enjoys everything. I have yet to find that one book that made me sit back and go “Wow, that was amazing!” I thought about how great it would be if someone wrote something that incredible…then I thought maybe I should try it.

There are different kinds of readers, there are those who can use their imagination to picture the story and there are others who read the story but would love to have more of a visual. If you read a lot of romance novels, and you make the decision to read my book you will realize that “The Pandora Affair” is nothing like anything you have ever read. It turned out better than I could have ever hoped and it offers everything a creative and hungry mind longs for. The Pandora Affair has Romance, sex, drama, mystery, suspense, murder, humor and a gay best friend! My books cater to all.

I started writing The Pandora Affair in February of 2001 and finally completed it October 2012…why did it take me so long? I am guessing my A.D.D had something to do with……OH look at the kitty……where were we? It also went on hiatus during my divorce. So once it was done, I needed feedback to see if it was worth publishing….a small chosen group that were also enthusiastic romance readers were my guinea pigs. Every single person loved it and told me I HAD to get it published, ever since I have been hounded relentlessly to write another. So, my mind starts churning and the thought process for a new book began. Along with my newfound love and appreciation of life, and my new life experiences in seeking personal growth, new love and desires, and new friendships. My new book “Pandora’s Soldiers” will also be a reflection of my experiences with my very first book “The Pandora Affair”.

I never would have thought that love or even passion would become part of my life again after my divorce, until James was unexpectedly brought into my life. His charm, intelligent personality, handsome face and his extremely sexy physique seduced me into his world and he is constantly challenging me to be a more passionate, inspiring writer than I was the day before.

I really hope everyone enjoys the books as much as I do…
