Dear Selah,

Do you remember me?

Of course you don’t. So I’m going to give you a refresher course.

I’ve known you for years and years. We used to have beautiful conversations. There was no one that knew you better than me. We were handmade for each other.

Lately, it’s become achingly obvious you’re miserable. You’ve moved back home to take care of your ailing mother. You’ve been looking for a new job, but that’s not going well. Admit it: it’s all too much.

Everyone around you sees your suffering, but they’re not willing to help you.

Everyone but Jackson.

He comes into your life at the perfect moment and offers you everything you could want: a shoulder to lean on, love, and most importantly, hope.

But there’s no one that can compare to me. You seem to forget that I’m your figure 8. Your infinity. You try to run, but I will always find you.

Yours Truly,

Figure 8

 

 

CJR Review

I’ve been in the mind of this author before and its a screwed up place! Couldn’t wait to get back in there!!! But oh jeez. Wow.

This book. I’m having trouble trying to write this! My thoughts are everywhere!

I had no idea where this was going!

As I was reading, the theories were flying around in my head…I thought I had it and BAM, another curveball thrown at me!

Not saying anymore than that. Wow you have to read this.  But I advise not to read before going to bed cause I couldn’t sleep thinking about it!!!

SHADE'S LADY - cover

About SHADE’S LADY:

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

REAPERS AT ITS FINEST….AGAIN! 4.5 stars!

I think it’s safe to say that Reapers Legacy is my fave book of all time so when a Reapers tidbit pops up, I grab it!

Shade and Mandy aka Batman and Wonder Woman, don’t have the most normal of starts and both very reluctant about getting involved. But when these Reaper men want something or someone, they go for it!

Mandy is crazy and I love her! Her inner monologue is just fabulous! More than anything I loved Mandy and her sister, Hannah’s relationship, it blew me away.

And Shade. OMG….what a man! Gives Ruger a run for his money! But don’t tell Ruger, he is still my numero uno!

This has everything you want in an MC/Reapers book, and I know it was meant to be a short but I would’ve loved this to be a bit longer, the ending a bit more descriptively drawn out….but i’ll take any Reapers action there is!

We Said Forever by Marie James is LIVE!

 

 

Title: We Said Forever

Author: Marie James

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 15, 2017

Blurb

Rock bottom.They say the only way to go from there is up, but what is “up” when you’re born into someone else’s rock bottom?

At ten, football became my first love. It’s what got me out of the house away from my self-destructive family. My love for football landed me at Las Vegas University with a full ride scholarship, and the orange on my jersey was my favorite color…until my eyes landed on the red dress Fallyn wore the night we met.

At twenty-one, I jumped off the cliff into the unknown the second Fallyn McIntyre danced in my arms at a party. I had the greatest girl in the world and the opportunity to play college ball every Saturday. My rock bottom was looking up, thanks to my two first loves.

Parties, sex, and football—life was perfect. But one drink too many, and my world came crashing down. When I chose pills over my second love, my head told me it was the best decision I ever made. The pills keep me warm and protect me from the distance Fallyn created. Percs don’t judge me. They make me feel alive. 

Threes.


They say the best things come in threes, but one leads to a stable future, one is my salvation, and the other drags me to hell—a hell I’d willingly burn in for eternity…if it weren’t for my second love.

Surviving Harley

by K. Webster
Publication Date: March 14, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Amazon | Kindle World

Taylor Cunningham is a diva talk show host who’s signed on for ninety days of marriage to a stranger.

All in the name of skyrocketing her career.

Harley Harrison is a bearded survivalist who’ll do anything to move past a broken heart.
Even if that means letting millions of people choose his perfect match and letting them televise his every move.

Opposites don’t always attract. Two people can’t be forced to be happy. And after nearly three months in marriage hell, they are counting down to the moment they can throw in the towel and divorce, without breaching contract.

But then everything changes in the blink of an eye.

One hot drunken night. A national scandal. Terrorists. Bombs. And total anarchy. This unlikely couple will be forced to work together…even if it kills them.

Will they survive and find love along the way?
Or is this marriage over in more ways than one?

***

From sexy stories with married couples fighting against outside forces to keep their happily ever after in the Sex & Vows series to unexpected pregnancies that lead to happy marriages in the Yeah, Baby series… the Sex, Vows & Babies world is full of over the top alphas, sassy heroines, insta-love, wedding bells, and growing families. Although the wide cast of characters in both series have managed to find the loves of their lives, there’s bound to be plenty more out there who could use Sex, Vows & Babies in their lives.

Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning…LIVE!

 

 

Title: Beast: A Hate Story, The Beginning

Hate Story Duet #1

Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard

Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance

Release Date: March 14, 2017

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.

He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.

The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

Now I know better than to speak of happily ever afters.

Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.

#bestfriendssister The Play Mate by Kendall Ryan is LIVE!

the-play-mate-kendall-ryanSmith Hamilton has it all—he’s smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he’s not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm’s length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she’s blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family’s lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She’s crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie’s plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.
