BETRAYED BY LIES - cover

From the USA Today bestselling author of the Unbreakable series, comes a sexy, heart-wrenching novel…Betrayed by Lies.

As an ATF agent, bringing down the Estrada cartel has been my sole mission. I’m a skilled agent, determined and fearless, but a relentless pursuit and a willingness to risk everything almost killed me.

A year later, when an opportunity in Los Angeles presents itself, I jump at the chance to start over and rebuild the career and life I almost lost.

Kate Stevens was not part of my new plan. I never expected she would be the one to save me from my past. She was exactly what I needed—smart, beautiful and independent. I finally have a future I look forward to.

Only nothing in my life ever goes according to plan. Losing Kate is not an option, but fate seems poised to ruin me, and there isn’t a damn thing I can do about it.

EXCERPT:

SAM

She shakes her head and laughs. “I don’t judge. It sounds to me like your therapy has helped you see what it is you need versus what you thought you wanted, and I’m so happy you’ve recovered from your injury and you’re able to return to work. So many agents aren’t as lucky as you.” There’s a spark of sadness in her eyes. A look that only the friends and family of those in law enforcement get when they think of those who aren’t as fortunate as I am.

I nod in agreement. “Which is why I was excited to take this opportunity here in L.A. with your brother. He’s giving me another chance to prove myself. California is a fresh start for me.” I smile at her and she smiles in return, and it’s soft, caring, and does things to me that I’m not sure I’m ready for.

“So what do you do?” I ask, turning the questions on her. I’m done spilling my garbage. I want to hear about her.

She drops her eyes from mine and takes another drink of wine before resting it on her thigh. “I’m an attorney. I do corporate law, mostly negotiating and reviewing contracts. It’s extremely boring to someone who’s not interested in legalese, but it keeps me busy and it pays well.” She shrugs.

“Do you ever end up in court?”

“No. Ironically, if there is ever litigation, we typically hire outside counsel. Sounds weird, doesn’t it?” She scrunches her nose up and smiles.

“Not really.” I shake my head. “I get why. You’re an expert at what you do. The attorneys you hire are experts in litigation. Everyone does what they do best.”

“Exactly.”

Our conversation slows, but it’s not uncomfortable in the silence. We both relax in the quiet and jut ‘be’. There’s something to be said for that level of comfort when you’re in the presence of someone else.

“So, when do you think you’ll be moving in?” she asks.

“I’m having some stuff delivered this weekend, so I hope Saturday is okay?” I raise my eyebrow at her, hoping it’s not an inconvenience.

She smiles. “Saturday is perfect.”

“I’m still waiting on a truck from Phoenix, so that’ll be sometime next week, but I’m ready to get out of that hotel. Speaking of that hotel, I really should get going. It’s getting late, and I didn’t mean to keep you up.” I stand up and she follows suit. We both carry our empty glass and beer bottle to the kitchen, and Kate swipes something off the center island.

“This is the key for the house.” She dangles the ring on her pointer finger. “You can have your alarm system installed anytime. If you need anything secured before then, I have a safe and an alarm on this house. You’re welcome to keep anything in here.”

“I appreciate that.” The soft tips of her fingers brush against my palm as she places the key in my hand.

“See you Saturday,” she says, her voice barely above a whisper.

“See you Saturday,” I return. For the first time in a long time, I have something to look forward to.

Great reads this week from Kristen Callihan, Staci Hart, Kendall Ryan and MORE! It’s Weekend Review Time! 4/16 through 4/22

THIS week was amazing! It’s so hard to believe that April is almost over and summer is just around the corner!

I will be spending my weekend with Tara Sivec and Mia Sheridan at #AITB17! Authors in the Bluegrass! So this weeks post is premade and I won’t post any sales as they may not be valid by the time it gets to you.  

First up is

Kristen Callihan gave us a swoony, lust inducing romantic football God with Finn Mannus. This book is just so sweet and has love oozing out of it’s pages. This is not your syrupy sweet kinda read it’s learning to love after love has left you with nothing to believe in. 

 “But one day, Chess, you’re going to feel safe enough to let go. And I’m going to be there to catch you when you fall.”


Opposites attract, we all know that. But when goth style photographer Chess meets Quarterback dream boat Finn, sparks fly and body parts rise. She knows he’s your stereotypical playboy…or is he?

Finn Mannus is the mold breaking sweetness that ropes you in and keeps you warm. His words, his actions are so sweet and this slutty man is about to change.

Witty banter, flirty fun, sweet emotion and building something you never knew you wanted. Something you never thougth you would have. The chemistry is off the charts but are these opposites really compatible? Past issues, broken souls, and being too timid to fall completly off the ledge of love stand in thier way. It’s an angsty ride into happiness and it is wonderful!

There are so many layers to Finn and if you pull them back enough you will find a broken heart of gold!

Change is never good, change is disruptive and uncomfortable but sometimes change is just the therapy you need to push you where you need to be.

Check out what is coming from AL Jackson! Cover Reveal for Stand w/ Giveaway!

STAND

A Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel

 

Coming May 22nd

 
Cover: RBA Designs
Photographer: Wander Aguiar 
 
 
 
 
From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next seductive, 
unforgettable Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…
 
 
Zachary Kennedy has never been known as a fighter, but he’ll never regret 
fighting for her…
I’m Zee Kennedy.
Quiet. Reserved. Predictable.
When my brother died, everyone thought I was just the good guy who stepped up to 
take his place in the band.
No one knew what I was hiding. The one thing I’ve been fighting for.
For six years, I’ve never lost focus.
Not until one chance encounter with Alexis Kensington.
Now she’s become my greatest temptation.
I knew better than to touch her, but now that I’ve had a taste, I can’t get enough.
Her kiss becomes my air. Her body my salvation.
She needed a savior and somehow she became mine.
Taking her was a betrayal. But keeping her means risking everything.
One look at Alexis Kensington, and I know she’s worth the fight.
Will my past continue to keep me down or will I finally find the strength to pull myself up 
and Stand…
 
 
 
Tingles rushed, my words nothing more than pants as he kissed down through the valley of my 
breasts. “Maybe you’re just remembering who you are. Who you were always supposed to be.”
I felt as if I was so close to knowing him. This boy who’s beauty had been muted. 
He groaned, half pained, half demand. “You almost make me feel like him.” 
Yanking me away from the railing, he hoisted me high. My legs were wrapped high around his 
chest as he carried me the rest of the way to the upper loft. To this magical place where twilight 
touched every corner, whispered its secrets and danced in its shadows. 
He’d barely tossed me to the bed when he was over me, shoving up my dress and ripping it free, 
my fingers just as frantic as I tore his shirt over his head. I searched him, hands racing across his 
chest, feeling the wild beat of his conflicted heart, hearing the struggle that whimpered from his 
spirit. 
He angled down and captured my mouth again. He kissed and bit and nipped as he held my face 
steady in the frame of his hands. Then he edged down, driving me wild with this murmurs of 
kisses at my jaw and ear and neck. 
“Zachary…please.”
I writhed, dizziness rushing as I stared up at him towering over me. 
His body was brimming with hard, cut muscle. Muscle that jumped and ticked and flexed, as if 
the desire thrumming in his veins stalked back and forth, a caged predator, searching for a way to 
be released.

 Such a great read right here! It’s like two books in one! You get all the goodness of Greek Gods and Goddesses plus a hot rocker playboy who is about to meet his match! You will fall in love with this NEW one! What happens when you face off with the Goddess of Love in a battle will they or won’t they? Lex and Dean are the newest pawns in THE GOD GAMES but there is more than just a human relationship on the line!




 

4 Star Witchy Excellent READ!


The Gods sit on their pearly perches on Mount Olympus and what do they do for fun? They battle it out and use humans as their pawns. Sometimes when caught in the cross of a battle the humans actually come out on top.

A fun, deep read of change and finding ‘The One’, when the stars align just right and you are on the side of the, Goddess of love, who always wins – your heart may just get what it wants. 

These Gods are petty and selfish, we know that..they always are. But I love a great read with the Gods and the Goddesses. A great learning experience through Greek Mythology. 

When love is on the line, Aphrodite always wins…Always! Apollo has too much to lose in this battle and he will do whatever it takes to win. One fateful day a long time ago change the fate of both these Gods. Anger and revenge has been the goal for eons but love is on the line for everyone involved. 

You get two books in one with this one. You get the rocker man whore who is never with a girl longer than it takes to do the deed, a woman who has never believed in love and is very superstitious then you get a good dose of Greek mythology. It’s like a Reese’s cup, hard yummy God chocolate on the outside with a tasty peanut butter love in the center.



Aphrodite knows love — just don’t ask her to figure out her own mess.  

Rather than deal with her sticky love life, she toys with the hearts of unwitting humans. It’s a little game she plays, and the stakes are high. Lucky for her, she’s just found the perfect match.

Lex is everything Dean needs, but he can’t have her.

It doesn’t matter that her eyes speak to a long forgotten part of him, or that her art and poetry touch his shredded heart. She’s off limits — crossing that line would implode his band and everything he’s ever cared about. There’s only one option: stay away from her, no matter the cost. Even if the price is his heart.

Dean is everything Lex wants, but she can’t take the risk.

The second she meets him, she knows her heart is in danger. She’s convinced it’s only attraction that has her hung up on the dark, quiet lead singer, but with every day that passes, she knows it’s more. It’s just that she can’t put her heart on the line. She won’t — love has never been worth the sacrifice.

If only they knew they were just pawns in a much bigger game. And in the game of love, Aphrodite never loses. 

 

 

 

*Formerly titled Deer in Headlights, Paper Fools has been rewritten and reedited just for you.*

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

PREPPY PART THREE FULL JPG

Preppy, Part Three: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater by T.M. Frazier

Release Date: April 26th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

The bowtie is BACK!

I’m reading this right now and WOWZA! This is amazing! Someone is out to get them…again…but who will it be? I can’t wait to find out!

Dre was just a beautiful stranger when Preppy saved her the first time around. Now, he has to save her again, but she’s no longer some stranger, she’s family, and he has no idea who or what he’s up against.

What he does know is that putting his family back together is the only acceptable outcome.

Preppy’s to-do list?

SAVE FAMILY. SEEK REVENGE.

He’s alive…and he’s out for BLOOD.

Preppy Part Three is the third book and conclusion of Preppy and Dre’s story. It’s also the 7th book in the King Series, which should be read in order starting with KING & TYRANT.

Excerpt:

Preppy placed his other hand behind my neck, pulling me closer. “Dre, when I look at you, when I touch you. I love you so much it fucking HURTS,” he said against my neck, the vibration of his words had my nipples standing at firm attention all over again.

“I don’t want you to hurt,” I said, although I knew exactly what he meant because I felt the same. I had so much love for him it made my chest swell to the point where I thought I might break inside. Preppy looked down between us to where his swollen cock bobbed with his every move. The head thick and purple, throbbing and glistening at the tip, dripping with his own need. “No, Doc, it hurts, but it’s the best kind of pain.” Preppy’s eyes were half-lidded. A devilish smirk played on his lips. “Look, it hurts so bad even my cock is crying.”

I returned his smile, looking up at him through my lashes. I licked my lips. Preppy groaned, placing his hands on both sides of my head, running his fingers through my hair. I pushed him to his back and crawled down his body, giving a quick lick to the tip of his cock, which pulsed in response. I watched his expression darken as he watched me kiss and lick my way around his thick shaft. “Fuck,” he cursed. “What are you doing to me, woman?”

“If your cock’s crying, then I’m licking the tears away,” I said, taking the head into my mouth and swirling my tongue around to taste his salty pre-cum. I moaned, the sound shot straight between my legs.

Preppy dug his hands into my hair deeper, pulling, holding me with more force. His abs flexed as I took more and more of him into my mouth, lightly sucking as I circled my lips around the soft skin of his extremely hard shaft.

I pulled back and softly blew on his wet cock. All the muscles in his arms tensed. His hips bucked into the air. His mouth fell open as he gazed down at me with a lust filled expression I know mirrored my own. “Any better?” I asked, wrapping my hand around the base of his shaft.

Preppy shook his head. “No, not better. I think it’s fucking worse,” he ground out, looking as if he were in pain.

“How so?” I asked, stroking him from root to tip with a slight twist at the top.

Preppy hissed. “Because I want to fuck you again, but now I also don’t ever want my cock to be anywhere besides that beautiful mouth ever again. Those fucking red lips. Jesus fucking Christ, Doc. I thought I’d already died, but you’re the one killing me.”

“You mean like this?” I asked, taking him into my mouth again. Further this time. Preppy had a monster cock and although I used to think he was joking when he said that it was the honest truth. There was no way I’d be able to take all of him but I did the best I could, taking him until the tip of his cock hit the back of my throat. Giving him all I could because I wanted to make him feel as good as he made me feel.

“Holy fucking, shit,” Preppy groaned, holding onto the ground for support with one hand, the other still fisted in my hair. The next few sentences that came out of his mouth were incoherent because I began to slide him out and then back again, using my hand on the part of his shaft that my mouth couldn’t reach. Over and over again I stroked and sucked him with my tongue, squeezing him with my lips and hollowing out my cheeks so my mouth was wrapped as tightly around him as possible.

I used my other hand to reach around him and squeeze his ass cheek, pulling him in closer, holding him to me. I released him and pulled him back again, letting him know it was okay to move. He nodded, and bit his bottom lip, watching as he began to thrust his hips upward into my mouth then slowly pulling back out, groaning as he repeated the motion.

Over and over again he thrust forward and pulled back. I braced myself with my other hand on his ass and again he held my head with both hands as he fucked my mouth. Harder and harder until tears were flowing down my cheeks. I watched as the cords in his neck strained with his every movement. I felt his ass muscles tense and watched as his entire body tightened and his cock hardened in my mouth before spurts of warmth shot from him, deep into my throat. Preppy threw his head back and in the sexiest most animalistic roar he came and came and came until I thought I couldn’t swallow one more drop of his salty release.

He pulled out of me and collapsed onto the floor without pulling his pants back up. He pulled me down with him and wrapped his arms around my back. “I think I just broke a promise to you,” he panted, trying to catch his breath. Our chests heaving together in unison.

“What promise?” I asked, confused.

He tucked me in closer, laying a palm over my breast. “The one where I said I wouldn’t die again,” he chuckled. “‘Cause, Doc, I’m pretty sure you just fucking killed me.”

She saw him naked..but it was all for a job. Chess has the ultimate dream job. She photographs nakedness! Right now it’s the offensive line of the famous New Orleans Football Team…NAKED! What a hardship..right!? She alway professional, until an oiled up Finn Mannus appears in front of her lense. They were always more than friends, attraction and chemistry explode on these pages and Finn will make you swoon, melt and squirm in your seat! A REALLY GREAT READ HERE! Make sure you check out the EXCERPT below!

5 Stars of Opposites Attract and Finn Mannus is a Swoony God Goodness!

But one day, Chess, you’re going to feel safe enough to let go. And I’m going to be there to catch you when you fall.”

Opposites attract, we all know that. But when goth style photographer Chess meets Quarterback dream boat Finn, sparks fly and body parts rise. She knows he’s your stereotypical playboy…or is he?

Finn Mannus is the mold breaking sweetness that ropes you in and keeps you warm. His words, his actions are so sweet and this slutty man is about to change.

Witty banter, flirty fun, sweet emotion and building something you never knew you wanted. Something you never thougth you would have. The chemistry is off the charts but are these opposites really compatible? Past issues, broken souls, and being too timid to fall completly off the ledge of love stand in thier way. It’s an angsty ride into happiness and it is wonderful!

There are so many layers to Finn and if you pull them back enough you will find a broken heart of gold!

Change is never good, change is disruptive and uncomfortable but sometimes change is just the therapy you need to push you where you need to be. 

 

 

First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…

What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun. 

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.

Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.

Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

 

 

CHESS

 

Grumbling, I toss on some black lounge pants and my oversized Tulane t-shirt and head to the drugstore. 

My head throbs by the time I get there, and my insides are writhing. I rest my hand against my lower stomach and grab a basket before calling James to complain. 

“I swear,” I tell him as I grab a bottle of painkillers. “It’s like this entire day has been cursed.” 

He snickers. “Curse. Get it? Curse?” 

I roll my eyes, even though he can’t see me. “Laugh it up. Meanwhile, it feels as if someone is playing Battleship in my uterus.” 

“Poor Chessie bear. At least we know why you were in such a foul mood.” 

A flush washes over my cheeks. “Yeah.” Lie. Lie. Lie. A tub of salted caramel gelato makes its way into the basket. 

“Tell me you’re getting some gelato,” James says. 

I smile. “Just grabbed it.” 

“Salted caramel?” 

“You know it.” 

I find the feminine products aisle and search for my brand. “I’m going to go home, take a long bath with my gelato, and forget this fucking day.” Forget Finn. “And then I’m going to go on Amazon and buying a freaking year’s supply of tampons so I don’t have to make these kinds of emergency runs anymore.” 

A low, deep chuckle rumbles from behind me, and all the tiny hairs lift on my arms. 

“But you’ll still need your gelato,” a familiar—fuck me, seriously?—voice points out. 

My insides swoop even as my cheeks burn. 

“Who is that?” James asks in my ear. 

I slowly turn on one heel. “The plague,” I say, glaring up at Finn Mannus’s smiling face. 

“From asshat to plague.” Finn scrunches up his brow. “I’m not sure if that’s a step down or a tie.” 

“Who is that?” James nearly yells now. 

I don’t take my eyes off Finn. “I’ll call you back.” 

James’s squawks of protest cut off as I hit the end button. 

“Are you stalking me, Mannus?” 

Finn a rests his hands low on his lean hips. “Having a healthy amount of conceit myself, I have to admire yours, but no, buttercup. My buddy Woodson lives a few blocks away. It’s poker night. I’m stocking up on beer.”

It’s only then I notice a twelve pack tucked under his other arm. 

“And tampons?” I ask, with a pointed look around the aisle we’re standing in. 

“Not tonight,” he says easily. “Though we used to keep a pack of them back in college. Light flows were perfect for stopping up bloody noses.” 

A snort escapes me. “Now there’s a visual.” Somehow, I’ve taken a step closer to him. He’s freshly showered, the golden brown strands of his hair still damp at his temples. And I wonder if he’s just come from the gym or practice. “So back in college you went and bought these tampons?” 

“Nah,” he says with a cheeky smile. “I’d ask one of the girls hanging around to get me some.” 

“Of course you did.” My nose wrinkles with annoyance. 

“Give me a little credit, Chess. I’d buy them now if I had to.” 

“Hmm…” I eye him, trying not to return his smile. If only because it’s more fun when he teases. “So why are you in this aisle now, if not for potential nosebleed needs?”

“That’s easy.” He steps closer, a warm wall of muscle and clean scent. “I heard your voice.” 

For a second I just blink. “You recognized my voice?” 

His gaze darts over my face as if he’s trying to get a read on why I’m gaping at him. “Not to be…ah…rude, but you’re loud when you talk on the phone.” 

“Yeah, but… You recognized it.” We’d only just met. It occurs to me that I’d recognized his both times he’d snuck up on me. Then again, his voice is distinctive, flowing like hot honey when he’s relaxed or hammering down like iron to rock when he’s taking command of a situation. 

A soft flush of pink tints the tips of his ears. If I wasn’t staring at him, I might have missed it. He shifts his weight. “Was I not supposed to?”

“No. Yes.” I shake my head and laugh. “I don’t know.” 

He grins then. “You’re cute when you’re flustered.”

 

“I’m not flustered.” I am.

  This sexy single Dad will have you swooning and squirming! Off the charts instant chemistry and hot sweltering attraction, this fun read will capture your heart!

house mate_amazonWhat’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.

Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.

His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.

The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?

 

This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.

 Such a great read right here! It’s like two books in one! You get all the goodness of Greek Gods and Goddesses plus a hot rocker playboy who is about to meet his match! You will fall in love with this NEW one!



 

4 Star Witchy Excellent READ!


The Gods sit on their pearly perches on Mount Olympus and what do they do for fun? They battle it out and use humans as their pawns. Sometimes when caught in the cross of a battle the humans actually come out on top.

A fun, deep read of change and finding ‘The One’, when the stars align just right and you are on the side of the, Goddess of love, who always wins – your heart may just get what it wants. 

These Gods are petty and selfish, we know that..they always are. But I love a great read with the Gods and the Goddesses. A great learning experience through Greek Mythology. 

When love is on the line, Aphrodite always wins…Always! Apollo has too much to lose in this battle and he will do whatever it takes to win. One fateful day a long time ago change the fate of both these Gods. Anger and revenge has been the goal for eons but love is on the line for everyone involved. 

You get two books in one with this one. You get the rocker man whore who is never with a girl longer than it takes to do the deed, a woman who has never believed in love and is very superstitious then you get a good dose of Greek mythology. It’s like a Reese’s cup, hard yummy God chocolate on the outside with a tasty peanut butter love in the center.



Aphrodite knows love — just don’t ask her to figure out her own mess.  

Rather than deal with her sticky love life, she toys with the hearts of unwitting humans. It’s a little game she plays, and the stakes are high. Lucky for her, she’s just found the perfect match.

Lex is everything Dean needs, but he can’t have her.

It doesn’t matter that her eyes speak to a long forgotten part of him, or that her art and poetry touch his shredded heart. She’s off limits — crossing that line would implode his band and everything he’s ever cared about. There’s only one option: stay away from her, no matter the cost. Even if the price is his heart.

Dean is everything Lex wants, but she can’t take the risk.

The second she meets him, she knows her heart is in danger. She’s convinced it’s only attraction that has her hung up on the dark, quiet lead singer, but with every day that passes, she knows it’s more. It’s just that she can’t put her heart on the line. She won’t — love has never been worth the sacrifice.

If only they knew they were just pawns in a much bigger game. And in the game of love, Aphrodite never loses.

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.  

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Witchy’s Weekend Review 4/9 through 4/15

 This week was light with the NEW but WOWZA it was amazing!

I have two reads of the week this week they are complete opposite ends of the spectrum Tortured will decimate your heart and just rip you to shreds and Mister Moneybags will twist you around but you will be smiling while it whirls you!

If you celebrate, I would like to wish you a very special Witchy Happy Easter!

Here is what your week looked like!

Nicole Williams brought us a harsh look at surviving. Brecken and Camryn live two different lives, suffered two different kinds of torment but both thier lives are irrevocably changed, destroyed and broken. These two heroes will rise from ashes of darkness. You will feel their pain, there distress and each heartbreaking moment!

OMFG! I’m hooked, I’m wrecked, I’m addicted..I can’t stop!

Two heroes will rise from the ashes of life’s destruction! This book is epic. It is hard, stabby feeling inducing rage that will leave you broken but unable to stop, unable to quit until you get to the end where the world will be right again. 

My heart broke for Camryn, it was bleeding on the floor with every strike. 

Brecken, such a hero. They both will have to survive, different lives with similar torture. They lost each other, they lost themselves, this is a story of survival, of the harsh reality of life lived in pain. The things we are willing to do to make it through the next breath no matter how hard it is to breath in.

Pain and anguish lace these pages. Loss, abuse, and tears. This book broke me at 60%, it dropped me to the floor and crushed me but I couldn’t stop. I could not leave Camryn in these pages with a monster. 

Take a deep breath and prepare to be shattered, to be angry and want to string this man up by his balls, he’s not a man. Brecken is a man, a broken, survivor and at the end you will have your pom, poms out cheering for the revenge that is soooo very warranted!

 

Mister Moneybags by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland is a great adventure in reading. An amazing mind boggling twister that is full of flirty fun and smiles. It’s like crack for your brain and completely addicting!

Amazing! I devoured this baby! I couldn’t read fast enough! Intriguing, fun, addicting words! Mister Moneybags is crazy good! 

Dex is amazing! He’s hot and maybe a little bit nuts and I loved him! This is twisty unlike we have seen from these great authors. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. 

It’s twisting and turning insanely goodness that keeps you going!

It’s out of this world how these two ladies work together to give us such amazing reads. This is flirty, fun, with steam and angst it’s really an all around can’t get enough read that you may just want to read again and again. It’s just that great!
