What have I recently finished?


Two years ago, he took my innocence and ran,
Luckily for me, he’s a slow runner.
He doesn’t know that he gave me the most beautiful gift in the world – my son. 
I’m going to give him a gift too – revenge! 
And if he’s thinking he can get me and my son…
Well, he can go take a walk!

She’s my best friend’s little sister. 
I should never have touched her. 
But I did.
She was hot. She was fun. She was begging me for it.
So I gave it to her… all night long.
I told her I loved her. I promised her the moon and stars. 
I meant every word.
Then I vanished. I couldn’t tell her why. I still can’t.
We haven’t talked since.
But I saw her yesterday. She’s still hot enough to stop traffic,
Even with a kid.
She’s got secrets, but so do I. 
I know she still wants me, but she’s not begging this time.
This time she wants me to beg. 
But I don’t beg. I take. 
And I’m taking Jessi. Secrets and all.

Review coming tomorrow…… stay tuned.

What am I currently reading?

New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history—and it’s the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to. 

She hopes she can start over in New Orleans, where her ability to see ghosts isn’t so freaky. She’s even starting college, but the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren’t faced with a family she barely knows, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved. 

Can she really escape her past and be semi-normal? Even with her sister Mary and best friend Eric by her side, it’s going to be a wild ride once she agrees to help Mary’s new friends investigate a “haunted” house. 

The house’s new occupants are terrified, and the ghost seems to be attacking their little girl, leaving everyone desperate for answers. Emma isn’t sure what to think when she discovers Dr. Lawrence Olivet was also invited to investigate. 

Will her gifts be enough to save the family that is currently being stalked in their own home? And when some of her own family’s long-kept secrets come to light, will her fresh start be over before it even begins?

From K.A. Berg and T.E. Black comes a story of the forbidden desire—a story so delicious you’ll need more than One Taste.
 
I live the good life. I’m wealthy, the CEO of the advertising firm my father built from the ground up. I’ve been deemed a god in the sheets by the female population of New York City and have the equipment to match. Life is great.
 
Until my social life messes with my professional life. I’ve become a frequent flyer on the gossip pages. A detriment to business. Just as my perfect life is starting to crash down around me, I meet her.
 
All I wanted was one taste.
 
Now, I’m addicted.
 
One taste doesn’t seem to be enough.
 
I need more of her.
Too bad, too, because things are about to get real complicated.


 

Kimberly is a stay at home mom to four beautiful, crazy children by day and a steaming hot novelist by night. She is a Jersey girl at heart and that’s where she currently calls home with her amazing husband and children. 
 
Her debut release Inhibitions and the subsequent Uninhibited Series as well as the spin-off Apprehensive Duet both show her love of all things football. But not to worry, she’ll still bring you plenty of steam!
 
When not writing she can be found curled up with a good book or watching her beloved New York Jets. Lover all things romance, including a little M/M action as well as the dark and twisted. She enjoys video chats with her best friends and always loves to hear from her fans on social media.

New Adult and Contemporary Romance author, T.E. Black, also known as Tiffany, is never without a book in her hand. Whether she’s reading the newest release from a fellow author, or proofreading one of her own drafts, she’s always keeping busy.
Tiffany writes about imperfect heroes and strong-willed heroines. While, her heroines are known for going to head to head with the men in her stories, the heroes she writes always have that special touch of alpha.

When she’s not immersed in the literary world, Tiffany makes use of her time by being a full-time graphic designer for a company she owns and operates, creating book covers, teasers, banners, and swag for other authors and herself.

She began writing when stories she had read sparked an idea. She plotted her story, wrote three chapters, then scraped it where she let it sit in her computer for months. Instead of focusing on the potential of the story she had begun, she couldn’t help but feel as if she would never be able to publish a book as good as the ones she had read.

Months later, she obtained the courage to go back to her laptop and open up the dreaded first draft she had written. With a clear head and determination, she worked for hours on perfecting the three chapters she had written.

When she sat back in her seat, looking over her six thousand words, it clicked.
The story fell into place.
The characters spoke to her.
The plot lines began to pour from her fingertips, landing on her keyboard.
And then it finally happened.
She had written a novel.

Love it, like it, or hate it, Tiffany loves hearing from her fans! Feel free to connect with her!

Heartless #1 – Book Review

Synopsis

36136586
I’m warned that Carter Hayes is heartless.

He’s part of the screw crew.
He’ll just use you and leave you.
He’s ruthless and always gets what he wants.

Just look for the trail of broken hearts and dreamy sighs and you’ll find him.

“Hot as sin, Carter.”

I don’t have time to fall head over heels for any guy. Besides, he’d never notice someone like me. I have a three step plan. Get through college. Get a job. Get my sister out of the hell hole I left her in. That’s all I have time for.

That’s until I hear of the betting pool the guys started. Whoever screws me first gets the money. The moment Carter looks at me, I know it’s only because of the bet.

I tell myself our first kiss is only for show.
I hate my heart for falling for his irresistible charm.

For one foolish moment, I actually want him to be my first earth-shattering love. All it takes for me to give in is a little attention, a cocky smile, and a fake promise of a happily-ever-after.

When I’m surrounded by crumpled sheets and the smell of sex, I realize I let him have me for four hundred dollars.

To save what little pride I have left, I pretend it didn’t mean anything, that he’s just one last screw before we all leave college.

I’ve spent the last four years lying to myself. When I’m ready to take the final step of my plan, and save my sister, guess who walks through my front door?

This is a full-length, stand alone, unrequited love/second chance romance. 
Note: The book ends at 77% with samples of Predator and Protector.

Review

hlt

Carter Hayes and Della Truman, both go to the same college, but both in very different social groups.
Della is keeping her head down, working at a local diner to save up money to look after her sister after college.  Della and her sister lost their parents who sadly passed away when they were young.  Leaving Della to step up and provide the best life for her little sister.
Della is in her final year of college.  So far she has kept to her books, worked late nights, and gone home when she can.   She comes across as a protective girl, but tends to act first and think things through later, jumping to conclusions and impulsive, this doesn’t always work out how she planned, especially in her final year of college when she meets Carter Hayes.

Carter is part of the “Screw crew”, well known for picking up girls and then leaving ASAP.  He has been labelled Heartless, mess with him and he is sure to get you back far worse than you dished out.
I found Carter to be a quiet man unless approached, however he has a very caring heart hidden under his tough exterior.
Della is having a hard time when part of the crew Rhett keeps hitting on her.  Rhett is known at the beginning of this book for never giving up when he sees a girl he wants.
After Della uses some smart ass remarks to challenge Rhett he is more intrigued.  Rhett decides to place a bet that who ever gets Della into bed by the end of the year will win £400, at this point Carter walks in willing to defend Della but she is having none of it.  Della become feisty and rude, this of course sets Carter off to the point he lets her know how he feels.

Even though Rhett comes across as a jerk at the beginning, the screw crew are more like brothers and do actually respect women.  They help one another, and would never hurt anyone. They just happen to be a very attractive group of men that women throw themselves at, but not Della.  Well she thought she wouldn’t but Carter was different, more challenging and matched her.

Rhett- “You never use your strength against a woman.  You’re not fucking stronger to hold them down.  You’re stronger to protect them asshole”.

Della doesn’t realise the groups kindness and caring manner until she walks home late after work one night and two drunk men make advances at her.
She was extremely lucky that the 5 guys from the screw crew were driving by.  Once they see she is in distress and realise what the two men are trying to do, the boys jump into action.  Rhett and Carter protect her while the others sort the two men out.  After this Della becomes included in their family, against her choice of course.   The guys help her with her car and take genuine interest into how she is feeling.

Throughout the book I enjoyed reading how Della and Carter fought.  They obviously were attracted to one another but refused to give in.  When they did they would both become defensive and show hatred.

After college 4 years later, a lot has changed for Della, she has had to grow up considerably and take over a diner left to her.  She was struggling but getting by.  Then she bumps into the screw crew and Carter!   Some big surprises are to come his way and they are both forced to face each other and their feelings head on, but this time they can’t think about themselves.

The whole book was amazing, i was kept on my toes and did not expect to read what happened when Carter and Della meet again.  These two characters are both strong in their own way and I fell in love with them both, they have both had to face a lot in their life but now they have to come together.  This book also gives the reader a chance to see the story from both their sides of life, by each chapter focusing on one or the other.

Michelle Horst has definitely included fun, humour, erotica and overall a great page turner.  I will definitely be reading the rest of the books in the series.  They are all stand alone books but link into the series by following each of the 5 men.

Current Read…. Romance

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.
