Synopsis

Ellis Hughes has loved the girl next door since he was ten-years-old. She was his sun, moon, and every visible star in a clear night sky. She was also his biggest regret.

 

When a terrible accident rips Ellis and Harlow apart, it shatters both their hearts beyond repair. More than a decade later, Ellis has paid his penance, but his regret still lingers, and the love he once harbored for his childhood sweetheart has never faded.

 

What Ellis believes has been destroyed forever, slowly comes back to life, only for a cruel twist of fate to intervene. Knowing he cannot live his life without Harlow in it, he faces the ultimate test of selflessness.

About the Author

I’m a little neurotic; I function on a tiny amount of sleep, and a huge amount of caffeine. I love old movies, green skittles, and have a slightly strange, and irrational fear of stormy weather.

 

When I’m not locked away scribbling down the crazy stories that occupy my mind, I can be found at home in East Yorkshire with my husband and two children.

 

I’m unashamedly fickle and can be persuaded to do just about anything with the promise of a good book, new shoes, or a bottle of bubbles.

 

Oh, and did I mention I also love to write?

REVIEW:

There is not enough words to describe how I felt reading this book. In any language. It simply took my breath away. Ms Brooks has a way with her words that always leaves me speechless. And this book was no different. No. It was so much more. 


In here we meet Ellis and Harlow. Best friends. Best couple. Best everything. Nothing could keep them apart. Nothing and no one. 


Both of them are so hard not to love. You simply can’t hate them. It’s impossible. 


I knew Elle will not create a normal drama where there is a bad breakup because of misunderstanding or because they are off to college. No. She has to take your heart squish it slowly and then put into a mincer. When your heart is nothing but pieces, she is slowly picking all the pieces and expertly mending them together.  


There is not enough stars to rate this book. It’s simply a masterpiece that lands as first on my reading list for this year. It will be hard to move it from its spot. 


5 beautiful stars. 


Thank you for writing it. Thank you for giving us Harlow and Ellis.

ARC Review: Teacher by Heather Dahlgren and Ella Emerson

It’s Live!! Teacher by Heather Dahlgren and Ella Emerson


18+, Not suitable for persons under the age of 18. STRONG SEXUAL CONTENT, MATURE CONTENT, and STRONG LANGUAGE.

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

The fire I’d been trying to contain exploded. I pushed her against the wall and as her books fell to the ground, I slammed my mouth to hers. It was rough, demanding, all-consuming and when I got a taste of her again, I knew I couldn’t stop this time. She had no idea what she did to me, and I was about to show her.
I pinned her hands above her head as we continued this angry kiss. A kiss that made my cock rock hard and begging for release. When she moaned I broke the kiss and searched her eyes. “Nothing happened with me and Brandi this weekend. Nothing could happen because I don’t want replacement pussy, I want yours.”
She gasped, and I pressed my lips to hers again. Still holding her hands above her head with one hand, I trailed the other down her body until I reached the bottom of her skirt.
I pushed my hand under and rubbed small circles on her thigh. She thrashed beneath me, which turned me on even more. Slowly moving my hand, I cupped her pussy over her panties and she let out a yell that I kept quiet with my mouth. I rubbed her softly, feeling the heat and wetness through her panties. Feeling my way to the top of them, I reached my hand inside and was met with the softest, smoothest, wettest pussy I’d ever felt. I broke the kiss once again and nipped her bottom lip. “Fuck, your pussy is dripping with need. The idea that I made you this wet is so fucking hot.”
“Oh, Levi, please,” she begged and not one to disappoint I slammed a finger into her incredibly tight pussy.
“Fuck!”
“If you can’t be quiet, I will stop. Do not draw attention to this room,” I demanded, and like a good girl she listened. I worked my finger in and out of her as I buried my face into her neck. “Are you a virgin? You’re so fucking tight?”
“No,” she moaned out, and I knew I needed to give her the release her body needed so badly.
I added another finger and watched her beautiful face as she bit her lip to stay quiet. As I finger fucked her, I couldn’t help but look at the way her face flushed and her tits bounced. I was about to bust a nut from this alone, and I knew in the moment that I couldn’t just let her go.
Picking up my pace, listening to her soft moans, I reached my thumb up and rubbed her clit. Like a tsunami wave, her orgasm crashed over her hard and fast. I slammed my mouth to her to be sure she kept quiet while she rode this wave.
When I felt her body begin to shake, I pulled back, with my fingers still inside of her and searched her face. “This is how I feel about you. Understood?”

REVIEW:

Heather and Ella have done it again. She has captured interest with this story that I basically stopped only because I have to eat, sleep and go to work. But if I could I would just read it within few hours. My husband had to literally hide my e reader so I would go to bed.

The ladies have created the story and match their writing so perfectly that I was not able to tell the difference between their writing. And it’s really hard to do! So well done ladies here! Marvelous job!

But the story… I love a good love story. And if it’s hot, seamy and with sexy time it’s even better. For me a good relationship is compatible at all grounds. And sexy time has to be exact that: Sexy. And in here the scenes are just WOW. When I read them I wanted to jump my husband and basically make him if he refused to satisfy me.

In here we meet Levi and Trish. A teacher and a student. But what I like that the story is not starting at school. It starts with an accident and Levi plays the hero 😉 I liked him straight away. He was confident, handsome and hot. But also he was intelligent. Which I really do like in guys 😉 Trish is a Senior in High School and after her previous relationship she is not willing to trust guys. Simply she respects herself way too much. With Levi it’s different. Even though she is not dating she agreed to go on a date with him without hesitation. And Levi….Levi couldn’t help himself. What was their surprise when they meet not long after making plans…at school…as a teacher and student. Levi wanted to do the right thing and simply end the attraction but it was too strong. The pull between them was something that they both could not ignore.

I liked the story, even though at some parts it felt rushed and without much insight. Especially at the end. I missed the real drama. And I was a bit angry with Trish that she has not really defend Levi and said something about Mark being jealous. I was a bit disappointed here. But I really liked the real reason why Levi started to teach. It was different.

4 stars from me 🙂

perfectly imperfect teaser

Blurb

Mirror, mirror … who’s the fairest of them all?

I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn’t grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all ‘mean girls.’

And those mean girls were right – it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world – and I knew the answer would never be me.

The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.

The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.

Well, that’s definitely not Willow Tate.

No. That will never be me.

Because I’m completely imperfect.

And … I hate myself.

I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

 My thoughts:

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

It was my first book by Harper. And I ultimately LOVED IT. The first chapter made me cry, second made me mad and by the end of the book I was a raging, sobbing lunatic that was happy about the ending.

In here we meet Willow. Young woman who is struggling with her weight, appearance, behaviour and to be honest? Everything. She was not able to see herself in a positive way. Everything about her for her was wrong. So very wrong she decided to change it. But where normally a change is good I think it made her even more cautious about herself. But what drew me in the most? Her kindness. Harper has pictured her as kind and sweet person, but not stupid. And that’s what made it so amazing. I can’t stand sweet and stupid woman. And because of that I would bet most of women could find a bit of themselves in Willow. And when she meets Kane? OMG. The Sparks are just flying. You can feel the attraction and that SOMETHING.

Kane. God. Sexy and handsome actor that is tired of the Hollywood drama and expectations. What he wants is a woman with curves and actual intelligence. And not only a pretty face. When he meets Willows he is sure he has found that something. But as all famous people he has his own secrets and issues. But he is desperate to overcome all of them so he can be with the woman of his dreams.

Harper has touched really sensitive subjects here and she has done it perfectly. Her story line is flawless and characters are amazingly well developed.

5 heavenly stars from me! ❤️

 

About the Author

harper sloan

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

ARC Review: Blue Horizons by Kathryn Andrews

Title: Blue Horizons

Author: Kathryn Andrews

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Published: October 19, 2015

Will Ashton

Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.

At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough.

As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her.

Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more.

Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her.

Ava Layne

They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive.

Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.

OVER TEN YEARS ago my husband and I were driving from Chicago to Tampa and somewhere in Kentucky I remember seeing a billboard that was all black with five white words, “I do, therefore I am!” I’m certain that it was a Nike ad, but for me I found this to be completely profound.

Take running for example. Most will say that a runner is someone who runs five days a week and runs under a ten minute mile pace. Well, I can tell you that I never run five days a week and on my best days my pace is an eleven minute mile. I have run quite a few half marathons and one full marathon. No matter what anyone says . . . I run, therefore I am a runner.

I’ve taken this same thought and applied it to so many areas of my life: cooking, gardening, quilting, and yes . . . writing.

I may not be culinary trained, but I love to cook and my family and friends loves to eat my food. I cook, therefore I am a chef!

My thumb is not black. I love to grow herbs, tomatoes, roses, and lavender. I garden, therefore I am a gardener!

I love beautiful fabrics and I can follow a pattern. My triangles may not line up perfectly . . . but who cares, my quilts are still beautiful when they are finished. I quilt, therefore I am a quilter.

I have been writing my entire life. It is my husband who finally said, “Who cares if people like your books or not? If you enjoy writing them and you love your stories…then write them.” He has always been my biggest fan and he was right. Being a writer has always been my dream and what I said I wanted to be when I grew up.

So, I’ve told you who I am and what I love to do . . . now I’m going to tell you the why.

I have two boys that are three years a part. My husband and I want to instill in them adventure, courage, and passion. We don’t expect them to be perfect at things, we just want them to try and do. It’s not about winning the race; it’s about showing up in the first place. We don’t want them to be discouraged by society stereotypes, we want them to embrace who they are and what they love. After all, we only get one life.

In the end, they won’t care how many books I actually sell . . . all that matters to them is that I said I was going to do it, I did it, and I have loved every minute of it.

Find something that you love and tell yourself, “I do, therefore I am.”

My Thoughts:

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

It was my first book by Kathryn. And I’m ashamed to admit that. I own all of her books but there is always something that is more important. But after reading this book, I couldn’t wait any longer and started to read her previous books. I want to kick myself that I have always pushed them away. But anyway… let’s concentrate on Blue Horizons.

In here we meet Will Ashton. A successful musician who appears to have everything. Money, fame and life he has chosen 10 years ago. But standing on the scene during he concert his thoughts are not full of pride and achievement. There is no adrenaline. No rush he used to feel while performing. There is only feeling of being lost. The only thing he can think of is to run away from there. Far away. Somewhere where no one will be able to find him and somewhere where he will be able to think. To find his path again. After he walks away after the concert we meet him again few months later in the only place he is able to find piece. Among the mountains, on the lake where he used to spend his time with his grandfather. What he did not expect was to find something that was missing. Or rather someone. He did not expect to meet Ava and simply fell for her. It was not in his plans, but once he met her and got to know her, he realized that she was the missing piece to make him happy.

Avery Layne is a troubled young woman. She has lived through something that no one should have. And this traumatic day has damaged and scarred her beyond anyone imaginations. Now she a timid, closed and afraid of simple touch. When I read her memory flashes, I cried, even though it’s not an ugly crier. Not at all. But I felt her pain, fear and her drive to be free from this haunting memories. And she found her hope in Ash. A mysterious guy who she met during her weekend at her friend’s parents house.

Kathryn has touched a really difficult topic here and what I liked the most is the fact that she didn’t concentrate only on this. On ho Ava was damaged. Hurt. Scared. But on how Will wanted to help her even though he didn’t know what has happened to her and what to do. He simply took his own personal experience and tried to help her as once he was helped by his foster parents.

Kathryn’s writing is flawless. She has amazing style that pulls you straight away. I have fallen in love with Will instantly. And I have fallen in love with Clay. His quiet best friend. Even though he is not appearing in the book as often as I would like, I loved him for his kindness and understanding he gave to Will, when he needed it.

Beautiful story that will make you laugh, cry and sigh every so often.

5 heavenly stars ❤

Meet Dawn Brazil: 
I read words. I write words. I love words. Words have so much power, I understood this at an early age so story-telling has always been a part of my life. After college, I tried my hand at a few different careers – paralegal, customer service, sales. Yeah, I shouldn’t have. Now, I’m following my passion and doing what I love. I write Young Adult urban fantasy, science fiction, and romance novels. I live in Texas with my husband and three kids and my endless imagination.
 

Meet Sam Destiny:
Just a free-lance lover of the written word and fictional worlds… Everyone has that one perfect book boyfriend… I wanted my own, so… Here we are!
I’ve been writing since I figured guys in real life don’t do what I want them to do, and there is nothing better than to write the stuff you like… Until I realized that THOSE boys don’t do what you want them to do, either… *sighs*

Meet BA Dillon:
BA Dillon is a devoted wife and mother of two grown children, and a dedicated middle school teacher. Writing has always been an outlet for Dillon as she believes words are both powerful and magical. Tethered Through Time is Dillon’s debut novel. A Vision in Time followed in May 2015, and Shattered by Time is expected in 2016. It’s About Time, a novella, will be released in early September. Dillon also writes a monthly column, “Turn the Page,” for the magazine 85 South, Out and About in the Atlanta area.

Meet Jessica Florence:
What can I say. I love reading
Total addiction. 
I love all Romance Novels.
I am a sucker for happy endings and Alpha boys
I love books that make me happy and wanna laugh.
Meet Terra Kelly:
A romance nerd at heart, I tend to find inspiration in my dreams, or when walking my dog. My love for romance goes all the way back to when I was 15, and laying on my best friend’s bed reading romance books. It only took me 25 years to start putting all my stories on paper….well actually a computer. I was born and raised in Michigan, now live in the South in North Carolina. So my accent sounds like a Yankee with a slight Southern drawl. When I am not writing you will find me reading, or baking.
My real life romance started when I was just 19. Now over 20 years later, my husband is not only my lover but my best friend. We only raise furry kids, we have one dog and two cats. Our animals are all rescues.
I am a foodie, who loves creating recipes. Over four years ago I started a food blog at CafeTerraBlog. My love for food is why each of my books will always share new recipes made by the characters.
I love connecting with my followers. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. I will keep you up to date on what I’m writing, book release dates, and so much more.
Meet LadyJ:
I grew up in Upstate NY, but my heart belongs in Arizona. If given the chance, I’d gladly trade in frost burn, for sun burn! I speak in movie quotes ALL the time. Seriously, it might be considered a sickness by now 😉 I absolutely love the sound of others laughing. So I’ll try to get you to do just that!
I love coffee, peanut butter cups, and OF COURSE reading!
I grew up causing all kinds of trouble with my twin sister/partner in crime. 
My wild over-exaggerated story telling grew, along with my love for reading. With the support of my hubby and the encouragement of my womb mate, I put pen to paper, and let my imagination take over. 
I am an author currently working on the release of my debut novel. Forever Marked is a romantic suspense, and the first book in a series. I enjoy reading all genres. Paranormal, thriller, romantic suspense, dystopian…. You name it!

 

Meet R.J. Loom:
R.J. Loom was born and raised along the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio, where she still resides with her husband, two teenage children and two spoiled dogs. She loves books, music, travel and anyone with a great sense of humor. When she’s not writing, she can be found with her nose in a book, looking for more books to add to her “to-be-read” pile or spending time with her family.
Meet Franny Marie:
I live in Modesto, California(Too much hot weather) with my parents and Twin brother with Cerebral Palsy. I also have 2 cockers, buddy who is 3 and Ladie who is 1, they are my life. 
When I’m not writing books, I spend the majority of my time being a caregiver to my parents and Brother, I also squeeze in some time to play with my dogs and read.
I love reading Romance, Mysteries and Thrillers. You can also find me, Listening to The Weeknd almost 24/7 his music inspires all of my stories, Just ask my chicken soup ladies 😉
I’m currently working on Book 2 and 3 of the Initiation Trilogy which is a mystery thriller and suspense novella’s also Still working on my very first Novel I started back in August 2013, Intensive it in its 5th rewrite, I hope to have that out to you all sometime in 2017.
Lastly, I’m dyslexic, sometimes it shows up in my writing, but thank god for beta readers and editors.

Five years later, Laney comes back to her rocker boyfriend, but what’s waiting for her is not what she expected. Finally standing up for herself may be the worst mistake she has ever made, leading to some seriously dangerous consequences.

The horror she endured sends her to therapist James Hardy, a man that can make her forget about her demons while hiding his own.

They say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, but when the problem is buried deep down and the world seems like it’s against you, what do you do?

As Laney struggles to get her life back on track, a chain of events is set off and she realizes she has walked into a beautiful nightmare…

My review:

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book is a brilliant book for a debut story. Alisha has a way of telling you a really brutal story. She makes you feel so many things. She basically takes your heart, rips it out and squeezing it.

The books tells us a story of a young woman, Laney. A talented pianist that goes against her mother and decides to follow her dreams. Few years later she walks on something that changes her life forever. After that the chain of tragic events, that feels more like a nightmare, makes her go and visit psychiatrist office, where she meets Dr Sexy…I mean Dr Hardy 😉 And from there the story gets really sexy, but even though when she thinks that she can finally have a normal life, another tragedy strikes and she simply can’t coop.

I really enjoyed the book, but I expected a bit more (read: a lot) sexiness between Laney and Dr Hardy. I could feel the sparks at the beginning but then…they just went quiet. But even though it’s an amazing start of a new series!

Well done Alisha and I can’t wait for more! ❤

4 stars from me!

Title: Tribulation and Truths (Chastity Falls Series Book 3)

Author: L.A. Cotton

Genre: NA romantic suspense

Release Date: August 20th

 photo Synopsis_zpsojf4jd4c.jpg

When Ana revealed her suspicions to Jackson about the circumstances surrounding his father’s death, she never expected it to be the catalyst for a series of events that could change everything. It was supposed to save him, not push him away. But now Ana is left watching the person she loves more than anything, lose himself to vengeance.

Jackson has spent most of his life loyal to the man he calls Uncle. But since learning that Marcus Donohue might have been responsible for the death of his father, Jackson is consumed with the need for revenge. Even if it means hurting the people he loves, and going against everything he believes in, to uncover what happened.

Will the truth finally set Jackson free or will it ruin his last chance at happiness with Ana… and a life out from under the shadows of the Donohues?

Tribulations will be overcome, truths will be revealed. Welcome to Chastity Falls.

 photo Excerpt_zpsa5htxexx.jpg

“It’s my best shot. Only one of us is walking away from this and right now my upper hand is that Marcus thinks it will be him.”

Dennis stepped off the cage and blew out a long breath. “She doesn’t know, does she?”

“No. It’s for the best. Ana thinks we’re planning how we move forward on this together.”

Over the last couple of weeks, the pieces of the puzzle had slowly been slotting into place, and more and more I was realizing it was something set into motion a long time ago.

“If shit goes south, I need to know you’ll protect her. Even if it means getting her out of Chastity Falls. She’d never leave if I asked her to, she’s stubborn and she thinks we’re in this together.”

I hated lying to Ana, but it was better for her to draw her own conclusions than for me to admit that only one of us could walk away from this—Marcus or me. It would crush her. I couldn’t do it to her. To us.

“You know I will, but does it have to go down like this?” Dennis’ Adam’s apple bobbed and the desperation in his voice caught me off guard. “Is there no other way? Maybe we could go to someone for help?”

Scrubbing a hand through my hair I leaned back against the lockers and said, “This is the only way. We both know it. This is exactly the way Marcus planned it.”

The door swung open and the rest of the team filed in. I threw Dennis a look that I hope conveyed my gratitude.

I owed him my life.

I just hoped I didn’t have to pay up.

Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.

What can I say? The book is simply AMAZING. The whole series is. Every single book makes you fall in love with L.A. writing more and more. I think I’m just simply hooked on her writing style. The story she created just pulls you in and doesn’t want to let go. I always like to spread the books for few days, to savor it, but not with Chastity Falls books. I just have to know NOW. I was so angry I had to go to bed and stop reading. But lets concentrate on the story…

This part picks up where the previous book left us. Jackson *swoon* has joined Marcus in his shady business and took over Braiden’s position at the campus, but also started receiving more and more tasks, that were never entrusted to Braiden. He started to be included in the meeting with other bosses. And he found it is a “way in” to bring Marcus down. To get his revenge. To avenge his father. Where he was happy about being IN, Ana started being worried about him. He saw how he gets pulled in even further, deeper than what they agreed. What they expected.

Where Ana is sitting at home, worrying, Jax is uncovering more and more disturbing secrets. And what he learns changes everything. He starts thinking that all the secrets and the reality is bigger than what he can handle.

I will not say anymore to avoid spoilers, but let me tell you that: Lianne is just a freaking genius. The world she created makes you have a heart attack every chapter. Either you are being angry at Jackson, angry at Ana, at both of them for being stupid and resolving all their problems with amazing sex, instead of talking. Or you just want to strangle some of their friends when they see only incentives with Jax’s new position. But you will love Elena even more…. she is such a damn good friend… she is so supportive for Ana. Always being there for her. Just simply awesome.

But we have another character that will make you fall in love with him. Dennis *swoon*. Damn, he is hot and so supportive for Jackson. Being there for him, where Ana can’t and making sure he will not drown in the filth of Marcus’ world. After this book I have a new BBF…. ❤

It was an amazing end of Ana’s and Jax’s story. Full of drama, heartache, steamy sex and Jax 😉

5 stars!! ❤
