Naughty New Year Bloghop!!

Hey y'all, Happy New Year! I'm super excited for 2013 and all it will bring. So, here's my first hop and post of the year, welcome to the Naughty New Year Hop! 

So, I decided to share my stats for 2012 and my resolutions for 2013. So, here you are:

In 2012, I:
-Had 54 posts
-Participated in 9 blog hops and 2 Secret Santa gift exchanges
-Hosted 28 tour stops
-Read over 350 books (not counting all the repeats)
-Posted 11 reviews

As of Dec. 31, 2012, I have:
-102 GFC followers
-139 Twitter followers
-39 email subscribers
-112 Goodreads friends
-3593 page views

So, with that in mind, here are my 2013 resolutions:

-Revamp and design my blog- I've been toying with the idea for a  while of professionally having it done, and now I'm in the process of designing and pricing it

-Participate in more blog hops and tour stops and reading challenges
           -At least 15 blog hops
           -At least 35 tours
           -At least 2 reading challenges

-Post more reviews-now that I've got my feet wet and have an idea of how to proceed, I'm going to start posting up more of my reviews. Aiming for at least 50 this year.

-Get all my followers up to 200. 200 GFC, Twitter, email, and Goodreads friends each.

-Getting at least 10,000 page views.

-Maybe get other reviewers for my blog in order to be able to share more books. Still debating this though.

And in non-blog related news, I also plan on finishing my college degree and losing at least 50 pounds this year. 

So, those are my resolutions. What are yours?

Doms of Dark Haven
Met Her Match (A Hawkeye Story) by Sierra Cartwright
Genre: BDSM Erotic Contemporary
Series: : Hawkeye; Previous Book: Bend Me Over

Highly trained Mira Araceli can hold her own in the toughest parts of the world, but not, it seems, against her secret crush, Torin Carter. She’d fallen for her Hawkeye instructor years before, and to him, she’d been just another recruit; fresh, green, idealistic.

Torin, with his dark Irish good looks and fierce temper, doesn’t want a partner, any partner, and especially not Mira. But assignments are assignments, and he takes his responsibilities seriously. So when the beautifully submissive Mira crawls into his bedroom, a leather belt between her teeth, he calls on all his resolve to send her away.

Unsatisfied, Mira ups the stakes and finds another dom to play with at Dark Haven. Beyond furious, Torin storms into Master Xavier’s club and claims his rights to dominate Mira. For the first time in her life, she’s met her match.

Educating Evangeline by Belinda McBride
Genre: BDSM Shape-shifter Paranormal

This isn’t what she came here for!

Pursued by a group of mysterious hunters, Evangeline Jones was desperate for sanctuary when she ducked into the doorway of Dark Haven. Instead of safety, she discovers a decadent, sensual world that challenges her very outlook on life.

Harte Sommers is charmed by the little wolf with the pink streak in her ebony hair. As alpha of the Napa pack, he sometimes feels that he’s alone at the top. When he meets Eva, he knows he might not be able to keep his wild little wolf at his side, but his heart tells him that his lonely days might be at an end.

Simon Says: Mine by Cherise Sinclair
Genre: BDSM Erotic Contemporary
Related Title: Master of the Mountain

With an empty nest and divorce in hand, Rona decides it’s time to explore the fantasies that nourished her through a long, tedious marriage to a man whose idea of outrageous sex was leaving the lights on. At the top of her fantasy list is touring Dark Haven, the BDSM club, but she isn’t prepared for the effect of a powerful Dom. When Master Simon takes control and introduces her to toys and sensations she’s never felt before, she realizes he could fulfil every fantasy on her list all by himself. But she’s vowed to never get trapped in a relationship again.

One of the most popular Doms in Dark Haven, Master Simon has had his fill of eager, shallow, young subs. Rona is older, intelligent, independent...and sweetly submissive. After an evening of intense pleasure and despite her obvious attraction, she refuses to see him again. He needs a way to change her mind. She’s not the first sub he’s taken on a journey of exploration, but he’s beginning to think she might be the last.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, strong BDSM theme and elements to include exhibitionism and voyeurism.

Breaking Up is Hard to Do by Shannon West

Chad is terrified his parents will discover that not only is he gay but he has a very handsome, very Dominant boyfriend. Chad has been slowly exploring his submissive tendencies, and his patient, thoughtful boyfriend, Keith is giving him plenty of time and space, under his careful supervision. When a lesbian co-worker whose parents are also pressuring her, proposes she and Chad get married in name only to throw off the parents, Chad agrees and tells Keith he’ll “keep him on the side.” The one thing he doesn’t figure on is a pissed off Dom, with something to prove to his boy. Chad’s about to learn one very important lesson—breaking up is very hard to do when your Sir won’t allow it.
