Saven Deception (Saven #1)Saven: Deception (The Saven Series #1)
by Siobhan Davis

A girl with a hidden past. An alien prince. Their unlikely attraction could save two worlds… or doom them all…

Sadie Owens desperately needed a do-over. When she’s chosen for a six-month residency in a government-run undersea city, she willingly drops everything to participate. After all, the experiment could be a huge step forward for her overcrowded planet and her life.

The instant Sadie crosses paths with a hot guy with ocean-blue eyes she’s drawn to him in a way she can’t explain. But Logan gives Sadie mixed signals, and she can’t figure him out.

Logan Chandler has kept a lot of secrets for his species. If humans knew the real reason the Saven were on Earth, then their coexistence would be anything but peaceful. Logan has vowed to stay away from human girls, but he can’t help falling for the different and beautiful Sadie. Unfortunately, protecting the girl of his destiny could destroy his own kind…

As the mystery of the Saven starts to unravel, is it too late for Sadie to save her heart and the human race?

Saven Disclosure (Saven #2)Saven: Disclosure (The Saven Series #2)
by Siobhan Davis

Enemy alien ships crowd the skies over Earth while the world waits with bated breath. The Saven have been exposed, and where once they were abhorred, they are now championed as Earth’s greatest ally and only possible savior.

Logan and Sadie have been separated, and the longer he is gone, the more their love is tested by duty, doubts, and deception.

Sadie and Jarod have infiltrated the highest levels of government, but they are playing a dangerous game. Surrounded by people with conflicting agendas—hell-bent on using her for their own aim—Sadie is confused when the lines between good and evil are blurred. It’s impossible to tell friend from foe, and no one can be trusted.

When the full extent of the experiments taking place in Sector Twenty is disclosed, Sadie can no longer sit back and watch as the lower classes face a horrific fate. Racing to save her loved ones and mankind, she risks her own safety and the love she’s waited a lifetime for to do the right thing.

But no one thought to save her from herself.

My Review: A Distant Voice by Bridie Blake

A Distant Voice

by Bridie Blake

.

8AC7C9EE-1EDA-4907-B780-991B925999BCIn life you don’t find your voice. It finds you.

Violet Hayes knows how to survive the year living with her grandmother in the small town of Wandorah, Tennessee.

• Make Rose happy
• Don’t sing or play guitar
• Avoid Sally Shaw
• Ignore Carter Jenkins

It seems simple enough, right? Wrong.

• How do you keep a depressed sister happy?
• How do you deny yourself your dream?
• How do you avoid a friendship?
• And how do you ignore a boy when he’s everywhere you turn?

Violet’s to-do list just became a whole lot harder.

There are some books that touch your heart so deeply, and A Distant Voice is one of those books. Bridie Blake did an amazing job making the reader feel the emotions, there was some difficult subjects and she handled them so well. It’s a wonderful story about family, friendships and mental illness. This story has so much depth and truly speaks to the heart. I definitely highly recommend this one!! This indie author is a treasure worth finding! It’s a favorite of mine!! 5++ Stars!!!!

.

Excerpt:

He smiled and reached out to pull the guitar toward him. He strummed his fingers over the strings and played a few chords before glancing over at me proudly.

“Impressive.”

He offered me the guitar. “Your turn.”

“And what makes you think I can play?”

“Your bloodlines.”

I snorted out a laugh and clapped my hand over my mouth in horror.

“Play away,” he said, ignoring my snort, and pushed the guitar into my hands.

I stared down at it with my mouth hanging open. The way my heart raced you’d think he’d pulled the pin on a grenade and handed it to me. Relax Violet. It’s an instrument. It can’t hurt you. Unless I tripped over it and broke my neck. And that could happen. Probably not entirely realistic while I’m holding it, but if I dropped it and then got up and tripped, it … oh dear god, what is wrong with me?

His mom called out his name and he gave me an apologetic shrug. “I’ll be right back.”

He left the room and I remained where I was, the guitar still burning my hands. It had been months since I’d played. Months since I’d felt that wave of joy I got whenever my fingers ran over the strings.

A yearning, so strong it sent butterflies fluttering in my stomach, washed over me and my fingers moved. They ran over the strings, playing whatever came to mind. I closed my eyes and let myself be swallowed up by it all. I allowed myself to forget and be something else. Someone else.

I didn’t know how long I stayed like that but a shuffle behind me forced me back to reality. I opened my eyes and twisted around. Carter stood in the doorway, a look of wonder on his face and it made me squirm. I dropped my hands, rested the guitar on his bed, and scrambled to my feet. “I should go.”

He moved toward me slowly, as though scared a sudden movement would startle me. “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing,” I mumbled and folded my arms across my chest, tucking my hands into my armpits where they’d be safe and wouldn’t stray towards anymore strings.

His brow creased and I saw him trying to work out what had happened but I didn’t want to talk about it. I tried to duck out of his room before he asked me anything. He gripped my arm, stopping my quick exit. “It’s okay,” he said. “You’re allowed to enjoy things. You’re not betraying your sister by having fun or doing the things you want to do.” His voice, filled with sincerity and kindness, caused a lump to take up residence in my throat.

His hand ran along my arm and towards my hidden hand. He tugged on it until he freed it and he squeezed my fingers gently. I shook my head because he’s right, but he’s wrong at the same time. It was guilt over Rose that stopped me doing things but when it came to music, there was so much more to it.

Music destroyed Gran’s life. It ruined Mom’s childhood. I couldn’t love something like that because if I did, I’d open myself up to the same hurt. And I’m not anywhere near as strong as Gran. It would destroy me. It would be my trigger.

I wanted to tell him that. I wanted him to understand. But the words wouldn’t come out of me.

F8AD7F95-25A4-413B-BC08-FA47CD05ABA3The “Official” Bio

Bridie Blake lives, daydreams and writes in Melbourne, Australia. She’s happiest at her computer, coffee in hand, Tim Tams on standby and her furry companions Poppy and Mac at her feet. When not writing she’s usually found with a book in her hand or playing with her tribe of nieces and nephews.

Bridie is the author of the YA Fantasy novel, THE JEWEL OF KAMARA, and YA contemporary novels A DISTANT VOICE and UNTIL YOU.

.

The “Unofficial” Bio

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. Stories, songs, plays that I made my family perform. I always had a million things running through my mind and nothing has changed the older I’ve gotten. Actually it’s probably gotten worse. I’ve mastered the art of nodding along in conversations and slipping out the occasional ‘yeah’ and ‘mmm’ while constructing conversations and paragraphs in my head. If I stare at you blankly don’t fret. There’s nothing wrong with me, I’m just in one of my writing zones and there’s no helping me at this point! Just back away slowly and touch base with me in a month or so and I should be able to carry a conversation like a normal person. At least until the next writing wave hits.

It took me ten years to finish my first novel, THE JEWEL OF KAMARA, because I kept playing at living in the real world and thought being a writer was no more than a fantasy I shouldn’t indulge. Eventually the pull of my characters became too much that I just had to write the story, and I’ve never looked back. Creating stories is all I’ve ever wanted to do and now I’m doing it (while still playing at being in the real world from 9-5).

Release Blitz: The Sun by Stevie J. Cole

 

The Sun, an all-new Standalone Emotional Second Chance Romance by Stevie J. Cole is NOW LIVE!

 

 

From Goodreads Choice Awards finalist, Stevie J. Cole comes an epic tale of misunderstood youth and an undying, unconditional love that spans decades.

The cliche in love stories is that the good girl falls for the bad boy who smells of leather and exhaust from his motorcycle, and at the end of the day love conquers all.

The stories make it seem so easy. Life, on the other hand, makes it hard. The awful truth is: sometimes love leaves you in ruins.
Elias Black may have had a sleeve of tattoos and grown up on the wrong side of the tracks, but he didn’t have a true bad bone in his body. I loved him from the moment he kissed me, when I knew I no longer owned my heart, until the world pulled us apart.

And then I wanted nothing more than to unlove him, and he wanted nothing more than to unlove me.

I was just a girl who fell in love with a boy who fell in love with me until. . .

Gabby



Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover.

He was my soulmate.

We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.

Until he changed.

And I believed I was no longer good enough.

Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.

And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.

Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.

But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.

I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?


Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?

Excerpt:

A throat clearing alerts me to my brother’s presence. My eyes fly to the door, and Ryan is there, lounging against the wall, gaze narrowed as he watches us.

“Morning,” I croak, wincing at how hoarse my voice sounds.

“What the hell’s going on, Gabby? And why is Slate in your bed?”

“Technically, he’s not,” I say, unsuccessfully attempting to extricate myself from his grip.“He’s on top of my bed.”

At that moment, Slater, very unhelpfully, decides to nuzzle into my neck. A satisfied moan slips from his lips, and he blatantly inhales, rubbing his nose in my hair. “Mmm,you smell good,” he murmurs in a sleep-laced tone, pressing his morning wood against my ass. I can’t stop the whimper that escapes my mouth in time, and Ryan turns a very unflattering shade of red. If his jaw clenches any tighter, he’ll give himself lockjaw.

“This is not what it looks like,” I rush to assure him before he loses it.“And nothing happened, so there’s no need to go apeshit on Slate.”

“Someone better start explaining,” Ryan grumbles, and Slater stills behind me, slowly coming to.

“Ryan, dude. Stop freaking out,” Slater says after a tense minute of silence, his voice drenched with sleep.“I was only consoling Belle. That’s it. No need to look at me like you want to rip my head from my body.”

“That’s not the only part of your anatomy I’d like to dismantle right now,” my brother growls, slanting thunderous looks in Slater’s direction.

“Seriously, chill, bro.” Slater scoots away from me, and I instantly feel cold. I lie flat on my back as he swings his legs out the other side of the bed. Resting his elbows on his knees, he yawns. Thank God, he’s wearing a tank and sweats and that he’s hiding the evidence of his arousal until he’s gotten himself under control. The last thing I need is Ryan jumping to conclusions.

MY REVIEW

It’s funny how when you read a book, everyone comes away from it feeling differently or affected differently than everyone else. I read this book as a buddy read with Amber Hodges, a beautiful hearted person that I feel I got to know even better through this buddy read. She’s my chicky friend. Well, Amber and I had different feelings about this book when we finished. We both cried our hearts out, but for different reasons. Thanks for the buddy read, chicky friend, I enjoyed reading it with you so much! And thanks for putting up with all my ranting, raving, gushing, etc…comments. Poor Amber. She’ll probably never do another buddy read with me again!!

Ok..now about the book our wonderful, awesome, talented Siobhan Davis, wrote for us to read. The woman truly knows how to open her heart and bleed her words on to the pages. It’s the most beautiful experience there ever was. If you haven’t had a Siobhan Davis experience, you’re missing out.

For me the experience of the book was of a boy who loved a girl since he was very young, and she was younger, and she never took notice because she was in love with some one else. Heartbreaking…totally.

His name was, Slater. Her name was Gabrielle. But he called her Belle, and was the ONLY one who did. She was obsessed with Beauty and the Beast when she was little, and Slater used to tease her saying she wanted to be Belle for access to the library. But he was only partly right. She did daydream about being Belle, but she was no different than any young girl her age, and she wanted to be her for the prince. Not the books! Anyway, the name stuck, and Slater called her Belle ever since then.

She dated this other boy she loved, Dylan, for many years, until in college he began to change and they broke up. Her family was there for her, she had an amazing family. I really loved her family. And her brother Ryan, who she was very close to had her move in with him. Now Slater is Ryan’s best friend, has been since childhood, and a member of the family. He is one of Ryan’s roommates too. Slater wants to be there for Belle too.

“You’ll find someone amazing, Belle. Someone who sets your world on fire. Someone who appreciates how beautiful and special and intelligent and caring you are, and he’ll be the luckiest bastard because he’ll get to spend the rest of his life with you in it.”

So Belle starts to realize she has feelings for Slater. Feelings that maybe were always there, but she didn’t notice because she was so in love with Dylan at the time. So they fall head over heels in love. So much passion, so much love.

“I’d do anything for you, Belle. Anything.” Slater was loyal, devoted and totally in love with Belle. She meant the world to him.

Then there was news. Seemed like great news.
Then there was a tragedy.
Everything spiraling for Slater.

Can I just say I cried buckets for Slater….for SLATER!!! Yes, you heard me right!! It’s funny, but he is the character I identified with throughout this story.
And this is a long story. This isn’t one of your ok this happens, then this, then they lived happily ever after. Lol! This could have easily been two books full of DRAMA!!! When I say drama, I mean HEAVY DRAMA, EMOTIONAL, CRYING, SOBBING!!!!! Like I say, for me it was for Slater. But for someone else it could, and MOST LIKELY would have been for someone else!!!

After all is said and done about the crying, and who is crying for who. The thing of it is, the beauty of this story. Siobhan took to writing and opened her heart and poured it out and wrote a story that could affect us in this way. That could make some people cry for some characters and other people cry for other characters. I know she didn’t plan this, but when she opened her heart and bled on the paper, this is what happened. If she planned it too much, it wouldn’t have worked out this way.

This has been the hardest review I have ever written. I hope it’s not all over the place.

I highly recommend all Siobhan’s work!

She has the capability to put my entire life at risk.

My Review: IF WE FLY by Nina Lane

We fell in love. Then our world fell apart.

I wished so hard for Cole Danforth. And one day, he came true. He was my first crush, my first lover, my first and only love. He should also have been my last.

But in a split-second, we were ripped apart, our lives broken, my heart shattered. After ten years, I’ve returned to my hometown, the place of my greatest joy and darkest pain.

Cole is still here, but the beautiful boy I’d loved is gone. Now he’s a ruthless, unforgiving man determined to feed both my resentment and my lust.

Then our torturous past encroaches again, trapping us in a violent storm.

But this time, there is no escape.

My Review of IF WE FLY

“Don’t let go,” she says. “I won’t.” I lead her to the glittering wheel spinning against the night sky. “Come on, Josie Bird. Let’s fly.”

Oh, this series…I’m so in love with this series. I can’t say it enough…if you can, read this series!! Nina Lane has such a beautiful way with descriptive words. Her words tore my heart out at times. But read these beautiful examples:

“I keep going, desperate suddenly to run and keep running until the wind pushes me up into the sky, and I disappear.”
.
“A smile opens up from the middle of my soul, and a strange feeling lifts my heart. For an instant, I don’t recognize it. It’s light and airy, almost sparkly, like a purple balloon rising into the sky….Happiness.”
.
There were others, but I didn’t want to show you any that gave away anything.
This story about Cole and Josie really is heart wrenching. As I said in my review for IF WE FALL a tragic accident tears their world apart. Now in IF WE FLY, slowly we see things coming together again. But it’s not so easy. Nina Lane did a beautiful job weaving together love between Cole and Josie, love for family, and solving Josie’s mystery from her amnesia as a result of the the accident. By the time the book ended, I was so in love with the story that I wanted to start from the beginning and read it all over again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
5++ Flying STARS!!!

We fell in love. Then our world fell apart.

I wished so hard for Cole Danforth. And one day, he came true. He was my first boyfriend, my first lover, my first and only love. He should also have been my last.

But in a split-second, we were ripped apart, our lives broken, my heart shattered. After ten years, I’ve returned to my hometown, the place of my greatest joy and darkest pain.

Cole is still here, but the beautiful boy I’d loved is gone. Now he’s a ruthless, unforgiving man determined to feed both my resentment and my lust.

Then our torturous past encroaches again, trapping us in a violent storm.

But this time, there is no escape.

My Review of IF WE FALL 

I’m still trying to stitch my heart back together, and open a new box of tissues. This was a really…ugh…gut wrenching read. Just…such broken characters and raw emotions. Nina Lane really knows how to dig in deep.

First thing I’ll say is, make sure you read the prequel first!!! There’s too much you won’t understand if you don’t!!! Now, Cole and Josie are NOT in a good place. It’s VERY emotional and angsty. Josie comes home from California after 10 years to find that Cole isn’t the same person that he was before. Really Josie isn’t the same person either. They were both affected by the crash that happened all those years ago. Josie has amnesia and she cannot remember what happened after she left the anniversary party, until waking up in the hospital. She reads the police report over and over trying to remember what happened that day. She has nightmares and scary faces that she painted when she was in California. But now since coming back home she seeing the scary faces when she’s awake.
.
I don’t want to say too much and ruin the story for you. So I’m going to make this review a short one. But it’s interesting because it’s a little bit of a mystery, there’s romance, but then there’s angst and a lot of emotion. Then we’re left off wanting to know what happens in book two of the duet, IF WE FLY.
.
There were times that the book got me so emotional, and I haven’t been in a good place lately, that I thought I was going to hate this book. But Nina Lane has some unbelievable talent! She has won me over. I will be checking out some more of her books!! I am definitely giving this all the stars for all the feels!! I can’t wait to see what’s next!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

My Review of IF WE LEAP(Prequel)
.
This is the prequel to the What If Duet. It pulled me in from the very start. Her characters are so well written and very complex. Cole and Josie are the two main characters. They met as children and Josie befriended Cole, whether he wanted her to or not. But Cole was a broken and abused boy who had no friends and Josie was a tiny little thing, a couple years younger than him, that he felt the need to protect. Josie looked at him like he was her hero, she looked at him with respect. No one had ever looked at him like that before. So Cole and Josie became very special to each other.

Years later, now in College, Josie and Cole see each other again. They’re still very special to each other. Josie still looks at Cole the same way. But Cole is so damaged from years of abuse and manipulation from his father. He doesn’t feel he deserves Josie and he doesn’t want to pull her into his mess of a life. My heart really went out to Cole. Josie loves him, but loving a damaged and broken person is not so easy.

I can’t wait to read the Duet!! This is my first time reading Nina Lane and I’m already SO IMPRESSED!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The people we love are thieves.
They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.
*********************************************
They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.
He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.
He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.
I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.
Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.
But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.
You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.
I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.
He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.
And hoping.
Again.
