Author: A.L. Jackson
Publication Date: October 26, 2019

Summary:
Evan Bryant wasn’t your typical hero.
But he was mine.
Broken by the worlds’ standards, he was still the strongest boy I would ever know.
My best friend. The boy I’d given everything to. My heart, my body, and the promise of forever.
The day I’d needed him most, he walked away.
He left me shattered and questioning the love I’d thought we’d shared.

Three years later, I wasn’t prepared for him to return to Gingham Lakes.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he wasn’t the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.
My fingers still would have ached to caress his skin.
My body still would have begged to get lost in his touch.
And my heart . . . it would have always sung his name.
But time changes things. With it, secrets that could ruin everything.
Can we find a way to love again, or have the fears of our past stolen the hope of our forever . . .

Review:
This book was a surprise. This story is raw, beautiful and deep, that grips your heart and doesnโ€™t let it go. It has so much feeling, that I could feel the ache through the words on the page. Itโ€™s an emotional powerhouse, perfectly crafted and beautifully written. Youโ€™ll want to turn around and read it again the second youโ€™re done.

ADAM

Returning to my drug-dealing past wasnโ€™t on the agenda when I accepted the full ride to play ball at Cypress U. But Mom lost her job. And my sisterโ€™s medical bills are mounting. So, Iโ€™ve no choice but to change the playbook.

When Emily walks into my life, like a fallen goddess with the ultimate power to destroy me, I know Iโ€™m screwed. I should steer clear, but Iโ€™m the one supplying her poison of choice. Falling for her is a complication I donโ€™t need, but the more sheโ€™s around, the harder it gets to walk away. She needs me, and I crave her more than the sport I love.

Now, itโ€™s all on the line. Including the NFL career thatโ€™s tantalizingly close.

The stakes are high, but family means everything, so Iโ€™ll take my chances.

EMILY

Itโ€™s only a problem if itโ€™s out of control. And I have it in hand.

Except a certain a-hole discovers Iโ€™m using again, and he threatens to rat me out to my folks. Momโ€™s president of Cypress U, and Dadโ€™s the illustrious football coach. Appearances mean everything to them, and Iโ€™m a continuous disappointment.

They told me Iโ€™d be out on my ass if I fell off the wagon, so keeping it a secret is my number one priority.

Until the super-hot all-star QB takes more than a passing interest in me. Adam gets me, in a way no guy ever has, filling my head with ideas of foreverโ€”and now, I want more.

Dating my dealer is a recipe for disaster, especially when itโ€™s forbidden, but I canโ€™t help myself.

Because Iโ€™ve fallen too deep.

And the hole is too large to crawl out of.

Excerpt:

Iโ€™m half-tempted to call Donnie to make sure he gave me the correct address when headlights brighten the narrow alleyway.

The SUV is crawling toward me, and my nerves are jacked. I shouldnโ€™t be doing this. I should find a decent part-time job to pay for my sisterโ€™s medical expenses, but I see no other way. We have to get her vest fixed or buy a new one. Selling drugs is the only way to make some quick cash. Besides, Iโ€™m good at it. I sold dope and pills for years, and Iโ€™d never been arrested. I always had my pulse on the neighborhoods, and I knew where cops loitered at night.

Youโ€™ve been out too long. Things might have changed, and youโ€™re in a new state.

I push my inner thoughts aside. None of that matters. Iโ€™m always alert. I always know whatโ€™s around me, and as Mom tells me, Iโ€™m perceptive as hell. I have to be. Taking care of Mom and Phoebeโ€”especially Phoebeโ€”I have to be alert to her sounds, her breathing, and her emotions.

Thinking of my sister sends pain slicing through my chest. I canโ€™t let anything happen to her. She spent two days in the hospital, where the doctor pumped her with antibiotics, until she started feeling better.

The SUV pulls to a stop, and a short stocky guy gets out of the front passenger seat brandishing a gun. The driver, a taller man than his compadre, follows.

I lift my hands as if a cop is arresting me. โ€œIโ€™m unarmed.โ€

Aiming the gun at my head, he stalks toward me. His dark eyes are hard, his mission resolute. โ€œMove and youโ€™re dead.โ€ His deep voice is lethal.

An all too familiar wave washes over me, and Iโ€™m tempted to back out of this stupid idea to sell drugs and run before he pulls the trigger. Iโ€™m not any good dead to Mom and Phoebe. But I know his words are just a scare tactic while he frisks me.

I stand statue-still while the second dude, sporting a thin beard and no mustache, pats my sides, my lower back, down my legs, and straight down to my ankles. He sticks one finger in the air. โ€œAll clear.โ€

The stocky dude lowers his gun, and, inwardly, I grin. The goon didnโ€™t find the blade in my boot. Iโ€™m not about to use it though. But I donโ€™t walk into situations like these unarmed. Still, I make a mental note of the type of men Iโ€™m dealing with.

A tall man climbs out of the back seat. Heโ€™s sporting baggy jeans and a New York Yankees ball cap, and the gold bling around his neck probably weighs ten pounds as it glints off the dim light on the side of the car repair shop.

Itโ€™s all I can do not to roll my eyes. Donnie doesnโ€™t show off like this dude. Donnieโ€™s motto is blend in with the crowd. Standing out only draws attention.

โ€œYou must be Wrangler. Iโ€™m Ray Diaz.โ€ Ray struts over to the metal garage door. โ€œYou understand I have to be careful.โ€ He punches a code in on the keypad tacked to the frame of the door. Within a second, it opens.

I tuck my hands in my jean pockets. โ€œIโ€™m well aware of the industry.โ€

A deep chuckle erupts from Ray. โ€œI heard. Donnie told me you were a cocky punk too.โ€

Itโ€™s my turn to laugh. โ€œWhen I need to be.โ€

Review:
Prepare to cry, swoon and fall in love with Adam & Emily. This is such a heartfelt and romantic story, that youโ€™re not going to want to miss.

Written by two of my favorite authors, they wrote as one. It was seamless. It was such an honest, raw depiction of addiction. I cried so much through this book for Emily and what she was going through. Adam loved so hard. It was one of the things that drove him to sell drugs. A stupid and dangerous idea, but it is how he first met Emily. He was drawn to her from that very first moment. Then he found out that she is the Coachโ€™s daughter. He doesnโ€™t want to get kicked off the team, but he canโ€™t help his feelings towards this girl. Emily feels the same way. And what unfolds is a really beautiful romance. Add in lots of ups and downs, twists and turns, some shocking revelations, and you have the perfect book!!

If It’s Only Love by Lexi Ryan

Release Date: September 10th

if it's only_amazon.jpg

If Itโ€™s Only Love, a sexy new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan.

Meet single dad Easton Connor as he leaves the NFL and returns to Jackson Harbor to fight for another chance with the love of his life.

***

I donโ€™t regret much.

Not my decision to enter the NFL draft before finishing college.

Not fighting custody of my daughterโ€”even if, biologically speaking, it turns out sheโ€™s not mine.

And certainly not seducing my buddyโ€™s little sister ten years ago.

But when it comes to Shayleigh Jackson, my no-regrets attitude stops there. I screwed up royally where sheโ€™s concerned. Then I made another mistake when I let her shut me out of her life.

Now after more than a decade living in different time zones, Iโ€™m coming home to Jackson Harbor. My first priority is getting my daughter away from the media circus in LA, but the moment I see Shay, I know Iโ€™ll stop at nothing to win her back.

So what if she wonโ€™t speak to me? So what if sheโ€™s changed? So what if sheโ€™s fallen for some douchebag professor? Iโ€™ve never gotten over her and I know she feels the same about me. Iโ€™ve let her go twice. I wonโ€™t make that mistake again.

Excerpt:

โ€œWe need to figure this out.โ€

She spins back to me, her eyes blazing. โ€œDo it yourself.โ€

I huff out a laugh and prowl toward her. โ€œWhat did you say?โ€

Those defiant eyes brim with tears and her bottom lip trembles. โ€œI said do it yourself. I have nothing to say, but youโ€™re the one so determined that we have this conversation.โ€

I come closer. She backs against the wall, and I keep coming until there are only inches between us. โ€œThatโ€™s real mature, Shay.โ€ I cup her jaw and stroke her bottom lip with my thumb as I study her face. โ€œThis is what you want?โ€ I dip my head and bring my mouth a breath from hers. โ€œYou want me to corner you and make you talk? Maybe I need to remind you how good we are together.โ€ I cock my head to the side, touching the bridge of my nose to hers. โ€œYou try to keep hating me, but you lose your grip on it when I get close, so I wonder what would happen if I got closer.โ€

Her breath is sweet against my lips, and she grabs my arms and curls her fingers into my biceps.

โ€œIs that how it has to be, then? You want me to press you against this wall and kiss you until you canโ€™t remember your name and canโ€™t blame yourself for letting your guard down?โ€

Her pulse quickens beneath my fingers and her back bows as she arches into me. โ€œWe have nothing to talk about.โ€

โ€œBullshit. But maybe first you want me to track down that fucker youโ€™re sleeping withโ€”the one who youโ€™re fine to let โ€˜see other peopleโ€™? I could throw my weight around a little. Heโ€™d probably leave you alone just so he doesnโ€™t have to deal with me.โ€ I drag my nose along her cheek until my mouth is at her ear. โ€œThen you wouldnโ€™t have to tell him that you donโ€™t want him. You wouldnโ€™t ever have to admit that even after all these years, even after all the shit fate threw at us and all the mistakes I made, you still want me more than youโ€™ll ever want him.โ€

She swallows, and when she draws in a breath, I think sheโ€™s going to deny it. But she doesnโ€™t say a word. Her only response is sliding a hand up to cup the back of my neck. Fuck yes.

โ€œIโ€™m not going to do that for you.โ€ It takes every drop of my will to force myself to step back. โ€œI want you to talk to me. I want you to scream at me for every shitty decision I ever made. Then I want you to kiss me and tell me I get another chance. I want you to break it off with that douchebag completely and be with me, but Iโ€™m not going to do it for you.โ€ I take another step toward the door. โ€œYouโ€™re going to have to make the choice yourself.โ€

My Review

This series has been a favorite for me. The wonderful dynamics of a big family, and the romance as each sibling falls in love. I have loved each and every book, but this one is definitely my favorite!! This was filled with more than the romance story! We saw a young girl, Shayleigh, who fell in love with her older brotherโ€™s best friend, Easton, at a very young age. She had body image problems, and felt someone as beautiful as Easton would never be attracted to her. But when she was 16 (i think) Easton began to notice. He always cared about her like a younger sister, but now he was noticing more. But she was too young. He went off to Chicago and was drafted into the NFL, so they didnโ€™t see each other. Except one time when Shay was in college and her class took a trip to Paris. I wont say how they saw each other there (spoilers), but they both still had feelings for each other. So much happens. Itโ€™s like they werenโ€™t meant to be, but loved each other so much. Then he moves back home and into Shayโ€™s life again when sheโ€™s 30. Still there are obstacles. Thereโ€™s so much angst in this book. But the love story that develops is so beautiful and passionate.

Review: Unforgettable by S.B. Alexander

Title:ย Unforgettable
Author:ย S.B. Alexander
Publication Date: August 20, 2019

C2BB2FD3-B7AC-4F0F-B2E8-6B8ED2E11D1A

Summary:
Heโ€™s a football god.
Sheโ€™s the daughter of a Texas senator.
Their chemistry is like oil and water.

My name is Ryker James. I hate when people tell me what to do. Iโ€™m cocky, ornery, and I take things when I want them. Caring isnโ€™t in my vocabulary unless itโ€™s related to football or my family, and I just lost my entire family in a blink of an eye.

Now all I have is football. The problem is the misery, the drinking, and the parties have more appeal to me. But Lakemont University wants that championship. Fans want to see wins on the scoreboard, and my teammates salivate to crush our opponents every game. Yet the only pass I might be throwing is at the auburn-haired girl who waltzes into my life.

Sheโ€™s fire. Iโ€™m ice. A combination that doesnโ€™t work.

So let the games begin.

My name is Haven Hale, and Iโ€™ve been tucked away in a boarding school most of my life. Now Iโ€™m a big-time college girl, and all I see is freedom in front of me. But first, I have to agree to my fatherโ€™s demandsโ€”no media attention and no sororities. If I can follow those two edicts, then college life should be a breeze.

Until one close encounter with Ryker James, and Father Dearest has changed the game. Stay away from the big, bad quarterback, or face my fatherโ€™s wrath. Thereโ€™s only one problem. I canโ€™t help who Iโ€™m attracted to.

And Ryker James is a magnet, built to attract any female, constructed to make any girlโ€™s heart sputter, and my heart is beating off the charts.

But itโ€™s time to choose between the devil I know and the one I donโ€™t.

Review:
This author constantly surprises me with her books! This is definitely a favorite for me!! I love those guys who are prickly on the outside, but once the right girl gets past that, heโ€™s full of feelings and emotion!!

Ryker is exactly that kind of guy!! When he meets Haven, he thinks she is beautiful and heโ€™s drawn to her, but he feels theyโ€™re not right for each other. โ€œSheโ€™s fire. Iโ€™m ice. A combination that doesnโ€™t work.โ€ But there is more in the way of them being together than he realizes!

Haven has had a lonely upbringing since her mother died. She has been tucked away in boarding schools and longed for a relationship with her father. Now sheโ€™s at college and has more freedom than sheโ€™s ever had. When she meets Ryker she thinks heโ€™s gorgeous, but she also thinks heโ€™s a total jerk!

The characters were awesome!!! Including the side characters!! I loved the romance! *swoon* I was so wrapped up in this couple!! The emotion had me bawling my eyes out, and I did what I could to keep my kindle dry. This is such a wonderful love story, and more! You donโ€™t want to miss it!!!

Review: The Chosen One (Alinthia 4) by Siobhan Davis

Title:ย The Chosen One (Alinthia #4)
Author:ย Siobhan Davis
Date of Publication: June 30, 2019

83F1C646-0465-41C8-9A8F-9131767FC3A4

Goodreads Summary:

Is she strong enough to fulfill her legacy or will the dark side prevail?

After the gruesome battle on Xzanthar, General Arantu is on a mission to seek retribution, and he has Earth in his sights. Alinthia and her protectors ally with the government to shield innocent humans from attack, but thatโ€™s not their only concern.

As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Alinthiaโ€™s awakening draws closer, and no one knows what to expect.

Working from the secret societyโ€™s hidden base in the Valley of the Queens, Alinthia attempts to forge partnerships with alien allies in preparation for the ultimate battle. However, emotions are running high, distrust is rampant, and loyalty is hard-won.

Dane continues to push Alinthia away, causing additional friction and uncertainty when they can’t afford to be divided. Determined to avoid confronting what happened on Xzanthar, he throws himself into his duties, butting heads with everyone as he struggles to deal with the aftermath.

Presenting a united front has never been more important, but will their bond be enough to save Alinthia from the dark, evil forces still lurking in the shadows? Or are they all doomed to fail?

My Review:

If youโ€™ve been following this series, then you know that Alinthia and her 4 protectors (Dane, Maddox, Beckett and Cooper) were brought together as babies and bonded with magic. Then then were ripped apart from each other and grew up the 4 protectors separated from Alinthia. They were taught of the prophecy that centered around Alinthia and her protectors, that their bond was important in helping her be the savior of the universe. But Alinthia grew up on earth with her memory wiped, not knowing of her protectors, their bond, or the prophecy.

Now that Alinthia is reunited with her protectors and the bond growing and her powers getting stronger, they run across some pretty traumatic things that happen to them. Now as a result of that some of the protectorsโ€™ bond with Alinthia is growing stronger, but some is growing non existent. My heart cries for suffering that goes on and i worry, because if they donโ€™t repair the bond then Alinthia wonโ€™t be able to defeat General Arantu (the threat to the universe).

In this book, The Chosen One, things get really hot & steamy between Alinthia and her protectors. Except for one, where things are pretty cold & distant. Can Alinthia keep her protectors close and strengthen her bond? My heart was aching so much for all the hurting & pain. I had tears sliding down my face. But she has her other protectors who tell her they love and cherish her all the time. Theyโ€™re so sweet and so loving. When General Arantuโ€˜s men attack earth Alinthia takes them out. But Alinthia has nightmares where some creature is trying to kill her and itโ€™s like what happens in her nightmares really happens, so she becomes afraid to sleep.

This book touches on the science fiction aspect, but i think it focused more on there relationships as the Chosen One and her Protectors. Their bond is important, and we see how the three of them have opened up to it and become so much closer to Alinthia. But we also see that link that is fragile, that is breaking and needs help and isnโ€™t accepting it. This book was so important in bringing us to the final book. I loved it. Those complex characters were written so well, not just their dialogue and their thoughts, but their actions as well. I just love this series and really look forward to the last book!! Very Highly Recommended!!!

Excerpt:

I look up into his dark eyes. โ€œThis is a dangerous game of cat and mouse weโ€™re playing.โ€

โ€œMore like a game of cat and bird,โ€ he corrects.

I straighten my posture, my nipples grazing his hard chest. โ€œAnd we all know how that turns out in the end. The cat eats the bird.โ€

Nine lightly scrapes his nails over my bare arms before pressing them into my skin. I gasp at the slight bite of pain. โ€œNo, the pretty bird swoops down from nowhere and sinks her sharp talons into the cat, marking him for life.โ€

Thereโ€™s no sarcasm in his voice. I donโ€™t know how to begin to process what it is heโ€™s saying. It takes all of my concentration to get out my next few words.

โ€œAnd…and then what?โ€

Nine picks me up off the floor in one quick motion, flipping me back onto the bed. He crawls over my body, hovering above me, pinning my wrists to the mattress. He grazes his teeth over the sensitive spot behind my ear. He lowers his voice to a deliciously deep rumble that has me vibrating with his every word.

โ€œAnd then he eats her.โ€

About the Author

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier never dreamed that a single person would ever read a word she wrote when she published her first book. Now, she is a five-time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world.

T.M. enjoys writing what she calls sexyโ€˜wrongside of the tracks romanceโ€™ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines.

Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay.

She loves meeting her readers, but if you see her at an event please donโ€™t pinch her because she’s not ready to wake up from this amazing dream.
