Synopsis

Bad Boy. Screw-up. Good for nothing. Hero. Angel. These were all words Grayson ‘Torren’ Trammel had heard whispered behind his back over his lifetime. What he hadn't heard was ‘quitter,’ and he’d be damned if some little rehab chick, with her beautiful brown hair, and hot, sassy little mouth was going to label him as such. 

To My… 

Tru knows Grayson’s not for her. He’s too bad. Too hot. Too demanding. Too taken. 

She tells herself that almost daily as she helps Grayson get back into fighting shape after a horrific accident nearly ripped his life away from him. That had taken the life of one of the men in his MC. 

Grayson is everything her father warned her about, but there’s just something about him that intrigues her. That makes her want more. 

The man's a firefighter. How bad could he be? 

Line… 

Apparently, he could be way worse than bad, but he could also be so very, very good. Something Tru realizes, rather quickly, when the two can no longer fight the pull that’s between them. 

Now there’s only one word she wants to hear when it comes to him: his.

My Review 

If you have read any of this series You know they contain hot, alpha males. An this one is no different. Once I started reading I was hooked. I love that when you read a Lani Lynn Vale book you know exactly what you are getting. You know you are in for a great read. 

This book like the others in the series is about a MC group who all happen to be in one force or another whether it is police or fire. What an ingenuous idea to include all thinks hot. I love Torren and Tru's story.  

This is a book that will leave the world as you know it behind in a trail of hotness, Male perfection. romance and drama. All the perfect ingredients for a great read. It exceptionally written. Contains a great story with well thought out character's. 

I give this 4/5 stars

My Review 

When I read the blurb for this it caught my attention, but let me tell you the blurb does not do it justice. Once I started reading I was captured. Its a mixture of heartbreaking, finding yourself and romance all over again and not in the way you may think. 

I loved the characters in this. I thought Elena did a great job with them. I had a lump so big in my throat I think at some points I was on the edge of my seat. I wanted to reach in and speak to Sebastian. He's hot, sexy so sweet. 

I really think you need to add this to your tbr list. You will need to read book 1 first Look after you first. 

This book is amazing, its a heartfelt read that really pulls on your heartstrings. 

I give this 4/5 stars.

Excerpt

Copyright © Elena Matthews 2015

Prologue

I’m clutching Ava’s hand as if my life depends on it. My entire body is shaking as I look at the love of my life, my fiancée, the mother of my child in sheer desperation. I love her so damn much. I don’t care that she cheated on me. I don’t care that she didn’t tell me her secret. I can forgive her, I can...
“Where do we go from here, Ava?”
“I have to follow my heart,” Ava says painfully.
“And what does your heart say?”
My adrenaline goes up a notch as I wait for her terrifying answer. I can see her eyes begin to fill with tears and my heart thuds against my chest as I witness the look of pain etched along her beautiful yet battered face. God, the things he did to her… I can’t even contemplate it. Fuck.
Please say it’s me...
Please...
I need you...
I love you.
My eyes widen hopelessly as she opens her mouth to speak.
“That Ashton’s the one I want to be with.”
My chin begins to tremble on its own accord, and my insides snap and shatter at her words. An indescribable pain ricochets across my chest and I find it impossible to find my next breath. The tears I didn’t realize I held, begin to fall.
The motherfucking floodgates open and I cry hysterically in the arms of the woman who doesn’t love me anymore.
In that one moment, everything changes, and I turn to the only thing I know will numb the pain of my loss.
Cocaine.

Cover Reveal - Just Say When By Kaylee Ryan





Author: Kaylee Ryan 
Cover Designer: LM Creations
Release Date: May 2015



Synopsis:

Saving myself for marriage, not hardly.
Saving myself for someone who will make my heart race, most definitely.

In theory it's a good plan, however even the best-laid plans fall through. Seeing him, being around him, alerts all my senses and I dream about being his, wrapping myself in his arms and never letting go. The only problem – he sees me as his sister.

My name's Ava Evans and I'm in love with my older brother's best friend, Nate Garrison. 



Burying myself in work for the past two years, avoiding any thought of her, has worked, until now. She's everywhere, in my dreams, in my gym, and in my heart. I'm not sure when I fell in love with Ava Evans, but I am completely in love with my best friends baby sister.

At first she was too young for me and that made it easy to stay away. Now, it's a struggle to keep my distance.

How am I supposed to resist her when I can’t escape her? If he ever found out, it would ruin our friendship. Even with that knowledge all she would have to do is...

Just Say When.

My name is Ally Prince and I've always been unlucky in love. I dont know why, I just alwayshave.

When all of my best friends were falling for their soul mates in College, I was left behind. I was Ally, the pretty cousin of superstar quarterback, Romeo Prince. I was Ally, the best friend to the most amazing group of girls I've ever knowna title I loved, but one I became tired of 'just' being. And I was Ally, the one on which they could all rely.

But to me, I was Ally, the girl with the heart no one had claimed... And I was, Ally, the girl, who underneath it all, was heart-breakingly lonely.

I LOVE love; the thought of it, the nervous excitement of falling for Mr. Right, the desire of someone becoming my entire world... of me becoming theirs. Ive always wanted passion, heart-stopping, epic, life-changing romance... Ive always wanted the fairytaleIve always wanted it all.

It just never seemed like I would get it.

For the past few years I've thrown myself into my career as a museum curator. Im the best of the best, the person every museum wants to hire, so when an opportunity came up to move to Seattle, I jumped at the chance. My cousin and my best friend lived in Seattle and I needed a change.

I needed a new beginning.

I wasn't expecting to meet anyone in the Emerald City. I wasn't expecting to work closely with the reclusive new sculptor my all-important gallery design was centered around. And I certainly wasn't expecting to fall for him... heart-stopping, epic, life-changing love...
My real life fairytale come true.

But, like in every fairytale, theres a villain, a dark and tortured soul... I just didn't know that the villain and the hero in my story would end up being one and the same.

My Review 

I am so excited to share this author with you. I discovered Tillie Cole after Christmas, and have read all of her books. Reviews on which you will see soon. This book Sweet Hope is Book 4 in the Sweet Home series. 

This book is everything I thought it was going to be and a whole lot more. Full of surprises as to who Ally's mystery man is..........

Once you read a Tillie Cole book you will be hooked. If you are going to read this book, I suggest you start from the beginning with Sweet Home. Tillie has an exceptional talent and style of writing. Once you start reading you are captured. I couldn't put this book down. I don't think I breathed the whole way through. Even after I was done I couldn't stop thinking about it. 

The characters are so well written. You feel like you know them. The way in which you are drawn into the book it's like you are a part of the story, you see it playing out in your mind in bright colours, the smells, sights and sounds enveloping you within the story. 

Sweet Hope is exceptionally perfect, stunningly flawless. And an Amazingly fantastic read. 

You need to add this to your "TBR" list. 

I give this 5/5 stars and 5/5 for movie moments.

Excerpt
Vin sat forward like an excited child. I had to stop myself from laughing at the grin on his face. So,he said conspiratorially, Elpidio...
Yes,I croaked, my voice barely audible. The mere thought of curating his work made me feel weak at the knees.
At last Im commissioning his first show and I am looking for the right curator to put it all together.His eyes narrowed. Do you believe this could be you?
Yes, sir,I retorted with confidence. As soon as I heard about the position, I dropped everything to fly out here to meet you. I know Im the best person for this job. Ive studied his work.  Ive written academic journals on his methods and on his themes. Ive written articles on his rise to fame.
Vin sat back, clasped his hands and nodded his head. He seemed to have lost his enthusiasm. My stomach rolled. I wanted this position so, so much.
Ive read your articles and journals, Ms. Lucia,he said. I waited for him to say more. Youre an exceptional art scholar and you clearly have a passion for my protégé.
Yes, sir,I replied, Hes one of my favorite contemporary sculptors.I paused at what Id just said and lowered my eyes to inspect the wooden table. No, excuse me,I said nervously, Elpidio is my absolute favorite contemporary artist, period.
Vins head tilted to the side. Why?Vins eyes had lit up with interest.
Why…” I whispered, contemplating how I could express my love for his work in words. I took in a long breath, thinking through my answer, and opted to speak from the heart.
I closed my eyes picturing his sculptures and let my words flow. His worksThey are both the saddest and most beautiful pieces of art I have ever seen. Every curve of the marble comes from deep within his heart. The themes of his works are both provocative and gutting at the same time. I could get lost in every single one of them, all day, everyday for the rest of my life and never tire of it. They are raw and poeticso tragic, yet so beautiful. The merest of glances at any one of the pieces evokes a kaleidoscope of emotions from the very depths of the soul. I dont know what else to say except that his work communicates with me like no other,I patted my hand over my heart, it speaks directly to every fiber of my being. I feel his work. I feel it, as though it lives and breathes, just like you and I.
Opening my eyes, I blushed in embarrassment as I realized just how lost to my thoughts I had become. Vin leaned forward again and tapped my hand with his.
Well, Ms. Lucia, that was quite the answer,Vin said, with a hint of humor in his tone.

Huffing a nervous laugh, I brushed a loose piece of hair from my face. Hes quite the sculptor.

AUTHOR BIO

Displaying Tillie Cole Author Pic.jpg
Amazon & USA Today Best Selling Author, Tillie Cole, is a Northern girl through and through. She originates from a place called Teesside on that little but awesomely sunny (okay I exaggerate) Isle called Great Britain. She was brought up surrounded by her English rose mother -- a farmer's daughter, her crazy Scottish father, a savagely sarcastic sister and a multitude of rescue animals and horses.

Being a scary blend of Scottish and English, Tillie embraces both cultures; her English heritage through her love of HP sauce and freshly made Yorkshire Puddings, and her Scottish which is mostly demonstrated by her frighteningly foul-mouthed episodes of pure rage and her much loved dirty jokes.

Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved forty miles north to the 'Toon', Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended Newcastle University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Religious Studies. She returned two years later to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching High School Social Studies. Tillie, regards Newcastle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven 'proper mint' and 'lush' years.

One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on her much loved and treasured Kindle, Tillie turned to her husband and declared, "D'you know, I have a great idea for a story. I could write a book." Several months later, after repeating the same tired line at the close of another completed story, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and "just bloody do it!" For the first time in eleven years, Tillie actually took his advice (he is still trying to get over the shock) and immediately set off on a crazy journey, delving deep into her fertile imagination.

Tillie, ever since, has written from the heart. She combines her passion for anything camp and glittery with her love of humour and dark brooding men (most often muscled and tattooed theyre her weakness!). She also has a serious side (believe it or not!) and loves to immerse herself in the complex study of World Religions, History and Cultural Studies and creates fantasy stories that enable her to thread serious issues and topics into her writing -- yep, there's more to this girl than profanity and sparkles!

After six years of teaching high school Social Studies and following her Professional Rugby Player husband around Europe, they have finally given up their nomadic way of life and settled in Calgary, Alberta where Tillie spends most of her days (and many a late night) lost in a writing euphoria or pursuing a dazzling career as a barrel-racing, tasselled-chap wearing, Stetson-sporting cowgirl... Ye-haw!

Release Day - Jake Understood By Penelope Ward

Displaying 22016504.jpg

Blurb 

From the New York Times bestselling author of Jake Undone, comes a full-length standalone companion novel and sequel.

A different side to the story: Jake’s side.


“We’re getting a new roommate,” they said.

I thought nothing of it...until she walked in the door. Her hand trembled in mine as she looked at me with fearful eyes. My entire world spun on its axis.

Nina...

It was a mismatch made in heaven: innocent girl from the boonies moves in with tattooed, pierced, badboy engineer.

I came up with a bet, a plan to tutor her in math and coach her through her phobias. What I wasn’t betting on was becoming addicted to her.

But I was living a double life on weekends, and once she found out about it, she’d be gone.

I had to protect myself and that meant one thing: I couldn’t fall in love.

In Jake Understood, pivotal scenes from Jake Undone are retold from Jake’s point of view combined with all-new material from both the past and present time where Jake Undone left off. It can stand alone but if both books are read, should follow Jake Undone. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.
