Current Read…. Romance

36452037

I have been sent an ARC of this book for a review once read.

Rachel has always wanted one thing, true love. She has dreamed about her perfect wedding since she was little and it seems she will finally get it with her fiancé Ethan. However when Rachel meets Tom, an elegant, smart conceited lawyer, everything she believes and feels is called into question. This is a captivating story about the power of distance, lack of time spent between couples, and confusion that put Rachel In Between the two men. Caught in the web of the consequences of their decisions, life’s twists and turns, and the effects of karma on each of the characters. This book will make you question the reason why we do things, and will push you to side with characters as you live through their choices. In Between emphasizes the importance of bonds, true love and the power of forgiveness, and how these can turn the worst of situations into valuable life lessons of love and hope.

When I love two very different men equally, how can I choose one over the other?

I don’t think I ever had to choose, because even though I may not have realized this at the time, my heart and mind did. I chose long ago whom I truly loved. Which is why I ended up with one and not the other. I never had a chance of making the right decision if I had chosen myself, but that’s the funny thing about life sometimes it helps you identify the right decisions and that’s what happened with Ethan and Tom. I can definitely say with out a doubt that my mind and heart always knew what was best for me, and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.

Recently Finished: Defiant Attraction.

Defiant Attraction

Arc sent to me for an honest review
Dan might be the enemy of my enemy, but I’m not sure that makes him my friend. He’s definitely not my ‘step brother’, no matter what everyone at school says. Honestly, I don’t know what he’s supposed to be to me. Or what he’s becoming…

Fact: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In the yearbook, I’ll be Sophia Ramos: Valedictorian. Years of honor roll certificates, AP classes, and lugging around an obnoxiously large cello case are about to finally pay off. If everything goes according to plan, I’ll escape these decaying suburbs for a top university across the country.

The problem? A few years ago, my mom met someone just as broke, just as drunk, and just as impulsive as she is. Approximately five seconds into their relationship, they decided it would be an excellent idea for him—and his son, Dan—to move in with us. (Spoiler alert: it wasn’t).

Now I share a house with none other than Daniel Cole. Even though Dan dropped out two years ago, he’s still the tattooed, bad boy, heartthrob, legend of St. Anthony’s Academy. He and I aren’t supposed to have anything in common.

Living together means war. First, Dan and I were at war with each other. Now, our rivalry is giving way to an unlikely alliance—two opposing sides teaming up against a common enemy: our respective parents.

Which is to say, we’ve been hanging out.

Question: What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

Here’s the thing: My brain is a complex organ. One hundred billion neurons, each with an average of seven thousand synaptic connections to other neurons. My brain is my ticket out of here.

My heart, by contrast, is a pump. It moves blood around.

know Dan is off-limits. I know I shouldn’t do something I’ll regret. And I know how much is at stake (my family, my future).

So why can’t I stop thinking about him? Those inscrutable jade eyes. The smile that can say a thousand different things at once. That tattoo curving across his abs…
Even though I know better, I feel that pounding in my chest. And it’s getting harder to ignore.
But if I follow my heart, I can never go back.
Answer: There is no such thing as an immovable object.

Review : Defiant Attraction: Book review


What will I read next-  The ghost downstairs.

After making a fatal mistake on the job, Lina Zuendel seeks shelter in a Seattle assisted-living facility as their live-in nurse. But peace is not what she finds. She soon hears tales of ghosts haunting the house, and of two tragic deaths that took place in the 1930s. Unexplained events send her to ask questions of the handsome resident houseboy.

Ren Schultz, a seemingly young live-in houseboy, tries to avoid his growing attraction to the new nurse. His secrets are too dangerous to share, no matter how lonely he has become. But Lina is persistent, and soon uncovers dark truths that no one else has dared
to face.

As their attraction grows, so does the intensity of the paranormal activity. Can their love survive the mysteries that lurk in the old sorority house?

His Miracle Baby- Book Promotion

Every doctor told me I’d never have a baby.
But after just one night, I’m pregnant with his little miracle.

Elias Weaver is the kind of guy I should avoid. He’s the mayor’s son, and his bad boy reputation makes me nervous. But I put all that aside for just one night, and I make the best mistake of my life.

He gets me pregnant. It’s a one-in-a-million chance, but of course it happens to me.

I’m having his miracle baby, but I’m not sure that I’m ready to be a mother.

We barely know each other. He’s handsome, cocky, funny, and completely blew my mind in bed, but I’m drowning in debt and barely able to take care of myself.

He wants to step up and be a father. More than that, he wants me. I decided to give my baby up for adoption, but he’s starting to make me reconsider.

Everything about him drives me wild. His touch, his stare, the way he laughs as his hands slide down my back.

He’s not letting go without a fight. He’s going to remind me why I gave myself to him that first night.

If he keeps touching me, I just might give him everything he wants and more.

Chosen: The Complete Edition (Allure) by [Litton, Josie]

Now Complete in One Volume!
My name is Grace Delaney. I was born into this country’s most admired political family. When I was sixteen, the media dubbed me “America’s Princess”. I hate being called that, all the more so since I discovered the terrifying secret hidden behind my family’s glittering public image.
A few months ago, I graduated from college determined to make a life of my own. But now suddenly Adam Falzon is in it. The head of an old-world family with a reputation for ruthlessness, he looks like a fallen angel. As attracted as I am to him, I’ve come to suspect that Adam is hiding secrets even more deadly and dangerous than my own. I don’t dare give into my feelings for him.
But I may not have a choice. With every beat of my heart, he is drawing me further into a web of dark desire. My chances of escaping are slipping away. Worse yet, I’m no longer sure that I want to.
CHOSEN is a story of dark romance. It contains scenes of coercion, both emotional and physical, and should not be read by anyone who could find that distressing.

I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.

24330073-_sx540_

Well after that small intro about the book there is not much more to add when it comes to the story.  I was addicted. This is a very short story, only 141 pages.
I loved getting to know Sophie and Dan in this story.  2 teenagers/young adults who both have a parent who is just getting by in life.  Alcohol, arguments, abuse, yet these two stay strong and find love,  friendship in one another.

Sophie – A straight A student, cello player, lover of classical music but lives at home with a troubled mother and step dad.

Dan – Complete opposite, guitar player, tattoo’s everywhere and a troubled kid .  Dark past.  Every tattoo tells a story.

They are not related, however referred to as step siblings throughout the book, School can be a cruel place.  Once the secret is out there is some incest comments.  And of course social media plays a heavy part in the reveal of this story,  after all gossip spreads fast in school.

This book is definitely filled with lots of sexual tension and sex…. no other way to tell you all.  I am not mad about it.

For a short story this book is AMAZING. If you want an erotic, fun short story then give this a read, well worth it, and definitely added to my favourite shelf.

The Silver Bullet – Solis Invicti Book 4 – GIVEAWAY.

The silver Bullet book 4
“To think of death as a thing of beauty: that’s a threshold you can’t cross twice.”

The truth is out, and Emmy is faced with a choice she dreads: surrender her mortality, or allow her frailty to threaten the nascent society the Silver are building. With exile the only reasonable alternative, she struggles with feelings she can’t define and a duty she’s reluctant to accept.

While the Silver city hangs in the balance, Emmy must remake herself to redeem it and save her friends. Her reinvention forces her to choose sides, threaten alliances and risk becoming like those she fears: inhuman.

The Silver Bullet is the final book in Josie Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti paranormal romance quadrilogy, set in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic London where a deadly infection threatens to wipe out humanity. The only people who can stem its advance are the Silver, a vampiric race who offer a simple exchange: protection in return for blood and subservience.

Pages- 317
Available – Paperback and Kindle
Goodreads –  4.69/ 5 stars
Amazon – 4.8/5 stars

This ARC was sent to me in E book form, I was asked to give an honest review for a free copy.
Disclaimer:  There may be spoilers if you have not read the other 3 books!

Fourth week post the weepers coming out.  We follow Emmy and Ollie post another attack by Ben, accept this time Ben does not care about his own kind, everyone must go, or rebel with him.

Emmy annoys me, Sol has given her many chances to be with him, be safe.  Why can she not decide on a man, after all she has had Drew, Sol and now Ollie.  That is a lot of love triangles in just under 4 weeks.  But then again the feeling the world is ending can lead you to make last minute decisions.

Emmy passed the trials and is able to turn silver, however she now has a huge choice to make.  She has just found out that Sol, the leader has silvered for her – the biggest kept secret of all.  If Ben Succeeds in killing Emmy then he kills Sol, meaning one step closer to being the leader of the Solis Invicti.
Emmy still cannot make a decision argh.  She is stuck between a human life with hopes of a new beginning and perhaps a family one day, or does she turn silver, and go against everything she and her former friends believed in.

I cannot tell you too much more of the story as there would be too many spoilers.  This book is well worth the read to find out what Emmy chooses, the betrayal’s and the change in relationships, the drama and the plots.

What is the silver bullet?,  does Sol find the answer to save the humans and his own kind? or is Ben going to put down anyone in his path to seek power?

You must read this book, but read the series first.
