Review Tour + #Giveaway: Kiss Me Deadly by Tamela Miles @jackiebrown20 @GoddessFish

Kiss Me Deadly

by Tamela Miles

GENRE: Horror/Paranormal Romance


You never see the claws until you feel them.

Kiss Me Deadly is the chilling follow up horror and paranormal romance anthology to the fan favorite collection of stories, Rock Paper Scissors, brought to you from author Tamela Miles. Five unsettling tales of horror, with a pinch of the paranormal romance many readers have come to enjoy.

The Swinging Tree:

Audrina and Matt are all set to enjoy a vacation in a charming little town in Northern California. But the town holds deadly secrets that no citizen is willing to speak about. Silence may be golden, but it puts Matt and Audrina on a collision course with a dark force that is hell-bent on vengeance.

Hands Clean:

Lili's life is forever changed after a beach house getaway with her friends. She is given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to exact punishment on the one who betrayed her trust, and she grabs it once because she doesn't believe in transcendence.

Be Home by Sunrise:

Chase has been taking care of headstrong Tiffany since he turned her into a vamp. When she does the unforgivable, he whisks her away into hiding. She hopes their bond will go from maker and child to lovers, but there's a looming presence that won't let them ride off into the moonlight together. Or let them go unpunished.

Witch Bitch:

An afternoon spent with friends and new girlfriend, Luna, has Mason feeling hopeful about the future after his struggle with depression. When the situation goes from friendly to life or death, he is forced to confront the demons he has spent so many years running from. For some, forgive and forget isn't an option.

Paper Dolls:

Zach makes a great escape from his old life to Vegas with his new partner in crime, Paris. She challenges him to reflect on his ways and embrace the dangerous path they're both on. Too bad, for a city full of women, his soul searching takes him to an even darker place. Two is company, three is murder.

NOTE: The book is on sale for $0.99.


Matt slowly made his way across the field, completely unaware of the rugged ground beneath his bare feet. He had one objective on his mind as he moved along. He had to get to the source of the whispers. The mist was heavy and dampened his bare chest and pajama pants. Still, he trudged on until he reached the tree. He stopped abruptly and looked around.

The woman in the flowing white dress emerged with a lilting laugh. She danced around him; her lips parted provocatively. She whispered his name over and over. The beauty of her brown skin and short wavy hair captivated him, and he shuffled toward her. He could hear her in his head.

Not tonight, lover. But, soon, you’ll come to be with little ol’ Jewel to stay.

She disappeared into the mist, and Matt’s eyes snapped open. Confusion set in as he realized that he was in the field behind the Bellewood and not still sleeping beside Audrina. He looked around, completely dazed.

What the hell…”

He ran the whole distance back to the hotel, and as he entered the lobby, one of the employees gave him a once-over. He met the older African American man’s eyes and was surprised at his direct gaze. “A bit early in the morning for a long walk. Watch out for that mist, Mr. Marsh. It can change your whole life.”

Matt gave him a terse nod. “Thank you.” He swiftly headed for the elevator and, once inside, looked down at his feet blackened with dirt. He desperately needed a shower, and he hoped Audrina was still sleeping so he wouldn’t have to explain something that he himself couldn’t understand. As far as he knew, he had never sleepwalked.

My Review:

Kiss Me Deadly is filled with lots of twists that will keep you hanging on for more. It is full of mind-twisting evil. Is it real? I sorely enjoyed reading each and every story that Kiss Me Deadly had to offer. I pulled into its world the moment I read the first page.


A Woman hears voices in her head. Are they a product of her imagination or are they real?

The Singing Tree

A man and woman go on vacation. Strange things start happening to the man that he can’t explain. Is it all real or a product of his imagination?

Hands Clean

A Woman is the product of a violent crime. But the question now is – is payback worth the price?

Be Home by Sunrise

A vampire is brutally attacked and now she is in mortal danger. Can her maker save her?

Witch Bitch

Teenage boys decide to attack a witch. Did they bite off more than they can chew?

Ten Years Later

A man loses his job. After revealing this to his wife he learns that his life was never what he thought it was.

Paper Dolls

What a dark and twisted story of pure evil. I guess the saying what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Or maybe more like it never happened to begin with.

If you are looking for a short read that packs a punch then Kiss Me Deadly may be just what the doctor ordered. If you have a few minutes to spare grab a copy of Kiss Me Deadly today!
