All’s fair when you’re in love with War.
 
For seventeen-year-old Mia Ahlström, a world ruled by order is the only world she allows. A lifetime of chore charts, to-do lists and study schedules have helped earn her a spot in Redwood State University’s engineering program. And while her five-year plan includes finding her very own happily-evah-aftah, years at an all girls’ boarding school left her woefully unprepared for keg parties and co-ed extracurricular activities.
 
So nothing surprises her more than catching the eye of Tyr Fredriksen at her first college party. The imposing Swede is arrogantly charming, stubbornly overprotective, and runs hot-and-cold in ways that defy reason . . . until Mia learns that she’s fallen for the Norse God of War; an immortal battle deity hiding on Midgard (Earth) to protect a valuable Asgardian treasure from a feral enemy. With a price on his head, Tyr brings more than a little excitement to Mia’s rigidly controlled life. Choosing Tyr may be the biggest distraction—or the greatest adventure—she’s ever had.

Excerpt:
“Can I come in?” Tyr asked. His hands were still open—maybe to prove he was unarmed. Not that it mattered much—a guy who could fly and battle a creature that size wouldn’t need a weapon to debilitate me.
I gave him my finest stink eye.
“Please, baby. Let me explain.”
My eyes darted wildly between the forest and my boyfriend. There was a beast in the woods, but there was a man unaffected by gravity on the porch. One who had most definitely lied to me. I wasn’t sure which unnerved me more.
What I really wanted was to understand; understand how Tyr had done what he’d done; understand how he and Freya seemed human enough, but obviously weren’t; understand how that wolf was so powerful; understand how, if Tyr was an alien or a superhero or a mutant or whatever he was, how we could possibly have any kind of a relationship; understand why everyone but me had Henrik’s absolutely awesome lighters.
“I’m coming inside.” Tyr walked slowly, palms up, and stepped through the door. Then he walked backwards to the closet, where he hung up his crossbow and the two space guns. He shut the door gently, entered a code that I assumed locked the room, and closed the cover on the keypad.
I still hadn’t moved.
“Can I touch you?” he asked.
I nodded. Tyr slowly moved to my side. He took one of my balled fists and pulled me from the door.
“No more secrets,” he vowed. He pulled the lighter out of his back pocket and threw it off the porch. “Henrik didn’t make a special lighter. This is all me.”
He held out one hand and muttered something in Swedish I didn’t understand. Light shot from his hand and I spun around to follow its trajectory. It hit what looked like a clear screen at the edge of the woods, and traced an arc around the house in a half-dome, encasing the property in a silvery coating. Tiny spots floated gently from the dome, like thousands of luminescent snowflakes, and soon the ground around the house was covered in a glittery powder. Tyr snapped his fingers and the powder disappeared. Everything was as it had been—it was as if the whole night had never happened.
My knees buckled as the room started to spin. Tyr caught me just before I hit the ground. He swept me up in his arms and carried me to the couch.
“Okay, prinsessa. Time for the talk.”
He tucked a heavy throw around my legs and sat next to me. He kept one of his shoulders an inch from mine. I cautiously turned my head to appraise him. On the outside, nothing had changed. His eyes were the same midnight blue, his jaw the same perfect square, and the enormous arms folded calmly across his chest were the same ones I loved to curl up in.
But everything felt different. I realized I had no idea who this man actually was, where he came from, and what else he was capable of. The only thing I knew for sure was that I needed answers. Real answers, this time. No more secrets.
I drew a shaky breath and spoke the words that would change my life forever.
“Who are you?”

Synopsis:

The Monster.
In
one moment, my entire life was ripped away from me. I ignored the
warning signs until it was too late. Until I became the victim.


He took my life away from me; my freedom, my courage. I’ve lived my life in debilitating fear since that fateful day.


The Savior.
He was there the day it all went down, and he’s been by my side ever since. He’s been the only thing that’s kept me going.


He’s my best friend, but he wants more. I’m terrified to lose him. I’m terrified he’ll leave.

One brought me back to life.


I’ll never be the same person again–that girl died when the match was dropped. Too much has already been stolen from me.


It’s time to take back what’s mine.

Excerpt:

I
knew deep down inside there was a possibility he would take it to that dark
place, I just never admitted it aloud. I knew if I did, it would become real
and I had been living in my own lie for so long; I didn’t want to believe it.

It
isn’t until I smell the gasoline that I know we are at a point of no return.

“What
are you doing?” I sputter out, gasping for breath. My ribs ache, and I
have a splitting headache. I am blinking rapidly in an attempt to gain my
bearings. I can feel the cold, hard concrete beneath me and I realize I am
lying on the ground outside. The wind stings my face, sending goose bumps
throughout my entire body.

Why can’t I move?

Fear
begins to accelerate through my bones at a rapid rate. I can feel my heart
beating ferociously against my chest.

Why can’t I move?

I’m
still blinking continuously, hoping this is all just a bad dream.

“You
should have listened, Bryce. You never listen.”

I
rack my brain quickly trying to remember what, if anything I did wrong this
time. That’s when Tyson’s face pops into my head. Tyson was going to be my
accomplice tonight. He didn’t know it, but he was going to help me escape this
hell I’ve been confined in for the past couple of years.

I
swallow loudly.

He warned you,
my inner voice scolds me. The same voice that has held me frozen in fear in our
relationship for the past two years.

I’m
looking up at Robbie, and I don’t even recognize him. His eyes are cold and
dark, his expression blank.

That’s
when I see the match. He flicks it across the back of the holder and a flame
ignites.

“No!
No! Please!” I’m squirming around, but excruciating pain is shooting
throughout my entire body.

“Just
remember Bryce, you did this to yourself.”

And
then he drops the match.

When you get hit by it, you will know. 

Aubrey Tanner is married to her work. With her recent separation from long-time boyfriend and the town’s most eligible bachelor, she definitely isn’t looking for love.

You can’t see it, but it takes your breath away. 

Tate Manning travels where the leads take him, like a tourist town with a bakery full of sugary concoctions, the sweetest of which is the owner. In the right place, he pulls her out of harm’s way, allowing him to see through the town’s sleepy veneer to the crime running beneath the surface. Worse, Aubrey is unknowingly in the center of it all, and he can’t bear another innocent to be lost on his watch.



In that moment, love changes everything. 

Neither Aubrey nor Tate expects the temptation the other brings nor the complications. Aubrey must choose between the man that held her heart for years or the stranger who saves her from a bad situation. Unfortunately, Tate brings with him secrets and an agenda. How will he choose between his mission of revenge and the woman who chases away the darkness?

Realease Blitz and ARC review: Lucky Penny by L.A. Cotton

 

 

Title: Lucky Penny

Author: L.A. Cotton

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 Release Date: November 30, 2015

 

Blurb

 

I was his lucky Penny. He was my light in the dark, hope in despair. Our bond was one of survival, friendship… first love.

But then we were ripped apart and Blake Weston became the memory I turned to when everything else in my life fell apart.

Seven years later, a summer working at Camp Chance is supposed to be my fresh start. Beautiful scenery and the chance to better the lives of foster children–kids like me. But when my eyes land on him across the fire, time stands still and feelings come rushing back to the surface. I thought I’d moved on, tucked him away in my heart. One look into his soulful blue eyes and I know I’m wrong. Blake Weston can heal the broken parts of me. Restore my hope. Love me.

It’s our second chance. A sign we are supposed to be together.

Isn’t it?

I was twelve when I survived the accident that killed my parents. Fourteen when I survived the devil. And sixteen, when I survived a heartbreak of the worst kind.

But in my twenty-three years, Blake Weston might just be the first thing I won’t survive.

Excerpt

 

Marissa didn’t follow me. It was most likely she had pieced together our story after Blake’s song. How could she not? It was as if he had weaved our entire relationship into his lyrics. I could feel his sixteen-year-old self singing every line to my sixteen-year-old self. Although, I was pretty certain the sixteen-year-old Blake I’d known then had no clue how to play the guitar.

After washing the tearstains from my face, I brushed my teeth. It was still early, but I couldn’t face going back out there, so I changed into my shorts and tank top and climbed into bed. Sleep would be impossible, but at least here, I was safe.

Most people felt lonely in solitude, but I welcomed the silence. I embraced it even. Something about the quiet, the knowledge no one else was around, comforted me. I knew it made me different. I didn’t need a shrink to tell me that, but it didn’t change the fact that I found sanctuary in being alone.

I lay there not really allowing myself to think. Thinking was dangerous; it led to remembering, and my memories were stained with pain and hurt and the kinds of things that made most people’s nightmares look like a walk in the park. Instead, I tracked the uneven cabin ceiling. My eyes followed the planes of the wood from one end to the other and back again until they grew heavy.

A knock on the door startled me sending my already restless heart into overdrive and I rubbed at my eyes.

“Hello?” I called out hoping to hear Marissa’s voice, but I knew it wasn’t her. She wouldn’t have knocked; she would have barged right in and demanded answers.

“Penny, it’s me.”

I squeezed my eyes shut, but my mind betrayed me as an image of Blake’s face filled my head.

Another knock.

“Penny.”

Forcing myself to sit up, I swung my legs over the edge of the bed. He wasn’t going away. Blake—our connection—was something I was going to have to deal with sooner or later, and from Blake’s admissions over the last few days, it seemed that he was making the decision for me.

My legs were like lead as I walked to the door. It swung open and Blake stood there looking at me with such reverence in his eyes I almost crumpled. Maybe I did crumple because, before my head had time to process what was happening, I was in Blake’s arms, and he was holding on to me like he needed me to breathe.

“I’ve missed you so much. I’ve tried to stay away, to give you space, but I can’t. I can’t spend another day feeling like you might slip through my fingers again.”

One of Blake’s hands buried itself in my hair and cradled my head holding me to him. My face pressed up against the collar of his hoodie, and I breathed him in. He smelled familiar, like damp grass and fresh air, of a time when things were less complicated, and my heart ached for us. At that moment, we weren’t two strangers reunited by chance; we were sixteen-year-old Blake and Penny.

And we needed each other to survive.

 

My Thoughts:

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

OMG. What a book. What a story. Ms.Cotton has created a master piece. The characters are real and well developed. The story line is perfectly timed and all events are lined up in a perfect order. The writing style just speaks to me. The world created just sucks you in and doesn’t want you to let go until you finish.

The book made me cry, laugh and curse so much. It was a total roller coaster. Both main characters are just perfect. They have good and bad sides of them. They are broken souls who find after many years find themselves again.

Penny is a poor girl who is trying to find herself again. Firstly she lost her purpose of live with her parents death and then when she was separated from Blake. Since she became an adult she was trying to find a new purpose and way of living and not simply existing. The summer on a campus, taking care of kids from foster families. There she met Blake again and this meeting lead her to question her life, to love again but also to have her heart broken all over again.

Blake… I love him but so many times I wanted to kick his fine ass. I loved that he still felt strongly towards Penny and that he was still protective but his way of showing it sometimes made me scream. Literally. And even though he was determined to be with her it took him long time to actually tell his family that he doesn’t care about the status and proper behavior as per his social status.

This book is so emotional that I cried so hard and messaged Lianne saying that it’s her fault.

This book so deserves more than 5 stars!! ❤

ARC Review: Beautiful Rugged by Sara V. Zook

Title: Beautiful Rugged

Author: Sara V. Zook

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release: November 29, 2015

beautifulruggedfront

synopsis

Sometimes us silly girls fantasize about things that never come to be. I had expectations after college—expectations to run off with Jake Larson and start our life together in a little Pennsylvania farm town. I had my happiness mapped out inside my head.

I didn’t expect to run into a strange, alluring man with a beard and dark hair stacked up on top of his head. I didn’t expect to be attracted to someone so—different. He was everything I didn’t know existed. He could make me feel things I’d never felt before. It didn’t seem possible that we could be together. We both had obligations. The world told us no, but we couldn’t stay away from one another, couldn’t deny that we were drawn together. He was so beautiful—so beautiful rugged. I was going to make him mine.

 My Thoughts:

ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

It was my first story told by Ms Zook and I enjoyed it for its sweet romance.

I loved it because it wasn’t your traditional romance book where a boy met a girl, they fell in love, had some drama but then lived happily ever after….No the real boy who she loved was not from the same world she was. And I don’t mean that they were rich-poor boy and girl. By different world I went she was a normal college leaver and he was an Amish boy who did not know her way of leaving, but was drawn to her in ways he never knew were possible.

Sara has perfectly described all the emotions and made me feel every single one of them.

4.5 heavenly stars! ❤
