Throw Back Thursday…..Ten Tiny Breaths by KA Tucker

“Just breathe. Ten tiny breaths … Seize them. Feel them. Love them.” 

“I don’t hate you. I could never hate you. Give me your heart, Kacey. I’ll take everything that comes with it.” 

“I want to make you smile. For real. Always. We’re going to go for dinners, and see movies, and walk on the beach. We’ll go hang-gliding, or bungee jumping, or whatever you want to do. Whatever makes you smile and laugh more. Let me make you smile.” 

“What’s wrong is that every morning and every night, I lie in bed wondering why you’re not beside me.” 

“I’ll make you whole again, Kacey. I promise you, I will.” 

“Hope. Hope that something beautiful may come from this tragic story. Fear. Fear that it won’t. Forgiveness … forgiveness.” 

“I can feel his very existence as if it’s wrapping its hand around my soul, cradling it, trying to protect it from harm and I’m terrified. Terrified because I don’t ever want the feeling to end.” 

Just breathe, Kacey. Ten tiny breaths. Seize them. Feel them. Love them.

Four years ago Kacey Cleary’s life imploded when her car was hit by a drunk driver, killing her parents, boyfriend, and best friend. Still haunted by memories of being trapped inside, holding her boyfriend’s lifeless hand and listening to her mother take her last breath, Kacey wants to leave her past behind. Armed with two bus tickets, twenty-year-old Kacey and her fifteen-year-old sister, Livie, escape Grand Rapids, Michigan, to start over in Miami. Struggling to make ends meet, Kacey needs to figure out how to get by. But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle anything—anything but her mysterious neighbor in apartment 1D.

Trent Emerson has smoldering blue eyes, deep dimples, and he perfectly skates that irresistible line between nice guy and bad boy. Hardened by her tragic past, Kacey is determined to keep everyone at a distance, but their mutual attraction is undeniable and Trent is determined to find a way into Kacey’s guarded heart—even if it means that an explosive secret could shatter both their worlds.

Waiting For Wednesday…..Keep Her Safe by KA Tucker

Noah Marshall has had a privileged life thanks to his mother, the highly decorated chief of the Austin Police Department. But all that changes the night she reveals a skeleton that’s been rattling in her closet for years: she doesn’t deserve her commendations or her medals—in fact, she deserves to be locked behind bars for what she did to a fellow officer to save her own reputation. When she finally succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family’s life, she leaves Noah alone to carry the burden of this shocking secret, which she makes him vow never to share.

Gracie Reynolds wasn’t born into trailer park life, but after ten years of learning how to survive in The Hollow, it’s all she knows anymore. At least here people don’t care that she is a byproduct of a white mother and a black father. And they certainly don’t care that her dad was a corrupt Austin cop. Here, she and her mother can almost forget the shame he brought upon them…until a man who clearly doesn’t belong shows up on her doorstep one night, asking questions.

Together, Noah and Gracie set out to uncover the truth about the Austin police department’s dark and messy past­—but the scandal they uncover is bigger than they bargained for, and goes far higher up than they ever imagined.

Review Blitz: Torrid Little Affair (Forbidden Desires #3) by Kendall Ryan

TLA AmazonThe best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

My Review

“This thing between us–whatever it was–was powerful. Overwhelming.”

“Something abut this woman–the feel of her, the taste of her, just her general presence–made me want to know her. To have her completely as my own.”

“I wasn’t generally a cuddler–at least, I hadn’t been for a long time–but tugging her against my chest was a powerful instinct. I needed her close, needed her safe. I needed her to understand that I would protect her, that I would look out for her needs. Emotional, physical, all of them.”

My heart ached for Cooper after the events of Dirty Little Secret. He was so unexpected, so sweet, and boy did he ever deserve love. So, when I heard that he was getting his own book….Well, I just couldn’t wait to get my greedy hands on Torrid Little Affair.

Torrid Little Affair picks up about 6 months after Dirty Little Secret. Cooper has been drowning his feelings and trying to forget about the woman he could never have. However, as life would have it, Cooper could only escape for a little while. Real life was calling and it was time for him to get back in to it. Cooper is a mess, but he is trying to move on. The one thing he never saw coming…Corinne. Shy. Sweet. Unbelievably Sexy Corinne. Something about this woman just called to him; made him feel things he couldn’t quite understand. He just had to know more about her. Only, there is more to Corinne than meets the eyes. Sure she’s shy, but she’s also scared and guarded. The pull between Corinne and Cooper is a strong one and one that can’t be denied. Will Cooper be able to break down Corinne’s walls and show her all that she’s been missing? There is only one way to find out…..

Torrid Little Affair was an intriguing and captivating read. I was hooked on Cooper and Corinne from the very beginning and was dying to know more. I love, love, loved getting to know more about Cooper. He is so much more than I was expecting. Complicated, but desperate for a love he’s never experienced. And Corinne….this woman had quite the mystery about her. She was afraid of some many things: letting someone in, moving on, taking a chance on love. I wanted to know what made her this way and I couldn’t help but root for her to find her way. Together, Cooper and Corinne were off the charts. I mean, the sparks between them were intense and just burned up the pages. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them. I loved watching them open up to one another, take risks and navigate their way to a happily ever after.

Overall, I thought this book was a really great read. I loved getting lost in Corinne and Cooper’s story and easily finished it just one sitting. I think this book was a great addition to The Forbidden Desires Series and I look forward to seeing who will fall next…

New York Times bestselling author Cristin Harber’s DELTA: REDEMPTION is the kindle daily deal – it’s on sale for .99c today only! Get your hands on Victoria and Ryder’s story now – you don’t want to miss this one!

ABOUT DELTA: REDEMPTION

“My name’s Victoria–No last name. Don’t ask.”

That was all that the woman would share when Delta team’s expert trigger man, an Australian named Ryder, pulled her from the pits of a human trafficking nightmare and took the gun from her hand.

He didn’t mean to steal her revenge but survival was the priority. Now that Victoria’s home? She had a past he was trying to understand while keeping a secret from her that might tear her apart.

But he’s not the only one. When she goes missing, Delta team discovers that Victoria No Name was a one-woman vigilante force, taking on whoever crossed her path, from gun runners to a drug pushing motorcycle club.

She was exactly who Ryder thought she might be, and now he was coming in to help–whether she wanted backup or not.

Get your hands on DELTA: REDEMPTION for .99c now!

READ AN EXCERPT FROM DELTA: REDEMPTION

The tears came. She couldn’t stop them, and she hated the path they burned down her cheeks, hated that Ryder was witness to her unraveling, just like he’d been in Russia.

He rested his hand on her back, not speaking, and he didn’t move to shush her. His palm simply rested there.

“Ryder.” She fell against him, and he wrapped his arm around her.

“Easy, love,” he whispered. “Take a breath.”

“I can’t.”

His chin touched the top of her head, and the arms that she knew could hug her like all hell did the job, wrapping her away from the world until the tears stopped.

“Feel better?”

Nodding, Victoria drew in a deep breath, wiping under her eyes. “Could you hand me a tissue?”

He was already halfway off the bed as if reading her mind and handed her the box. Again, Victoria wiped her face. With another fresh tissue to cover her eyes, she could barely look at him.

“This can’t be what you signed up for,” Victoria mumbled. “Sorry.”

“Stop apologizing.”

She balled the tissue up and hazarded a glance in his direction. “Why did you come here?”

“I was worried about you.” Ryder tilted his head back to the bed. “Can I sit again?”

Victoria’s eyes squeezed shut, but she nodded.

“I don’t have to. Never mind.”

She blinked and refocused on him. “What?”

“I didn’t mean to invade your space.”

Her head dropped. Ruined. He saw nothing but a ruined woman who was so fragile he misread what she meant with a simple look. “I didn’t—I wasn’t… I made a face. Or I didn’t mean to make a face.” She cringed. Such a mess! She couldn’t even get her words right. “I sound like an idiot!”

“You don’t.”

“I do. I’m not someone people worry about. Ever. I worry about people. That’s what I do. Did! I took care of people, and now look at me. I’m broken.” A sob caught in her throat. “I thought I was strong, and now, I’m this.”

He came to her bedside, swooping next to her. “Victoria.”

“Something happened to me. Over there.” She sucked a breath as she collapsed against the pillows. “And I can’t.”

He put a careful hand on her forearm. “Listen to me.” He ducked down close. “I don’t know what’s the right or wrong thing to say now, so I’m just going to say this.”

He came closer so their eyes met. His head was almost level with hers on another pillow, but he held her gaze and didn’t let go.

“Please don’t tell me to get up,” she whispered. “To get back to my life.”

“I wouldn’t dream of it.” Ryder shifted so his weight was semi-on the bed, but he didn’t break their stare. “We brought everyone home, and every girl said you were their savior, that you put yourself in front of guards for them, that you made sure they had food. If nightmares struck, you coaxed them back to sleep. You were their guardian angel in hell.”

Her eyes burned again with tears, but she wouldn’t look away from his emerald ones.

“Whoever you are, love, wherever you’re from, you take as long as you need to get back the strength it took to become you, and I will stay by your side to help you if that’s what it takes.”

“Why?” Her voice broke along with a stray tear.

“Because I admire warriors.”

Review: The Boyfriend by Mika Jolie

According to the law of attraction, women and men can’t be friends.

Contrary to this myth, my friendship with Coriander Phillips does not rest on unrequited love or un-actualized lust. We’ve been inseparable since the day I pulled one of her pigtails and she punched me in the gut.
She’s hilarious, fun to hang out with. Together, we’re like peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and meatballs, wings and beer. A match made in heaven.
She’s the bomb.
Did I mention she’s smokin’ hot? I’ve checked her out…maybe once or twice. Hey, I’m a guy.
Seriously, no awkwardness, no secret yearning for our relationship to escalate beyond the purely platonic. I’m the boy friend—the loyal shoulder she cries on, the dispenser of coffee, sympathy, hugs, advice, and affection with no expectations.
Until the invisible line between friends and lovers became blurry.
Now I want more. I want her.
All I have to do is convince her we can be more than friends.
Right?
If only it were that easy.

My Review

“I am consumed by desire to mark her as mine and possess her. A need I never knew I’d feel for a woman. A need that is so intense, it wrenches a deep, rough male groan from me as I pull her, caveman-style into me.”

The Boy Friend is a super cute friends to lovers romance. This story was told all from Dean’s point of view and I just loved getting inside of his head and hearing his thoughts.

From the moment I met Cori and Dean,  I couldn’t help but fall in love with the two of them. Their chemistry was amazing and I just loved their friendship. Their friendship was one that had stood the test of time and one that you just knew was destined for more. Watching these two fall and navigate their way to happily ever after was a complete joy to watch. I couldn’t get enough of them and was on pins and needles waiting to see how their story would turn out.

The Boy Friend was a quick and fun read for me. I devoured it easily in just one sitting. I thought the story-line was a lot of fun and if you know me, you know I am a total sucker for friends to lovers romances. And I’m happy to say that The Boy Friend hit all the marks for me. It was fun, and flirty. It was sexy with just the right amount of angst. It had great push and pull. And a romance that just keeps you begging for more. This is my first book by this author and I can already tell, it won’t be my last. I look forward to checking out more from her in the future.

Review: Explicitly Yours by Mika Jolie

Marriage. 

The final frontier. The end of dating. The number one cause of divorce. 

I bet you every man who is about to take the plunge experiences a wide range of feelings. As a guy, whose wedding day is only seven days away, I know this.

Anxiety—Nerves are kicking in. Yeah, even confident, cocky guys like me are bound to face nuptial stage fright.

Let’s face it, forever is kind of a long time, right?

Excitement—Coriander and I are going to make it official. I’m marrying my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with.

Nothing can top this moment.

That is until I got the biggest surprise of my life…

***While this book can be read as a standalone, it is highly recommended to read The Boy Friend first to avoid any spoilers.***

Amazon: http://amzn.to/2BNMKG6


My Review

Explicitly Yours is the follow up novella to The Boy Friend. Explicitly Yours is told from dual points of view and is the conclusion that fans have been waiting for. Now, since this book is a novella, I’m going to keep this review short and sweet. I don’t want to spoil anything!

So, what can I tell you about Explicitly Yours? I can tell you that it is the conclusion that fans of Cori and Dean have been waiting for. Follow Cori and Dean as they enter a new chapter in their life. These two love birds couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out. But, leave it to fate to throw a few more surprises their way. Cori and Dean have a love that can withstand any obstacle, so for this little novella, all I’m gonna say is sit back and enjoy the ride….

Explicitly Yours was a super quick read for me. I loved getting to spend a little more time with Cori and Dean and seeing the rest of their story play out.  Their little novella hits all the marks and is just the quick read I was looking for!

Release Tour with Review: Unraveled (The Ryder Boys #1) by Mia Kayla

Title: Unraveled
Series: The Ryder Boys, Book One
Author: Mia Kayla
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 4, 2017 
I once loved a boy who grew into a man. 

A man that promised me stability, loyalty, and a lifetime of security. I had it all—at least I thought so. Until mere minutes with someone else made me want for more. More than I already had. Forbidden wants that I shouldn’t wish for. 

Cade Ryder was everything my Ivy League pedigree should have stayed away from. Every sane part of my existence screamed for me to keep my distance. 

Distance from where he worked. Distance from him, his body, and his soul-searing eyes. 

But the more I stayed away, the more our lives merged. Now my life—my normal—is unraveled. My heart, my hope, my new future all in the hands of a tall, tatted bartender. 

I planned my forever with the perfect man. But sometimes the heart wants more than stability, more than security, more than what others want for you. One thing’s for sure—destiny can’t be planned.

My Review

“For once in my life, I wanted to welcome this danger. I wanted to live on the edge.”

“My whole body gravitated toward his as though he was fire and I needed the voodoo of my foul mood melted.”

“I was tired of pretending I was happy in front of everyone else and trying to convience myself that I was happy. Sometimes when you lie long enough, you tend to believe the lies.”

“His body, his being, his whole self was meant for me, too. I believed it. I believed it with every thrust of his body against mine, with every word that left his mouth and with every kiss he planted on my lips.”

Addictive. Unable to put down. Fast-Paced. An incredible story-line. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Unraveled.  Unraveled is incredibly well written and a great romance with a bit of a forbidden aspect. It also had a great opposites attract element as well. I loved the characters. I found them easy to connect with and easy to relate to. I was hooked on them from the very first page.

From the moment I encountered Cade and Angie, the sparks and chemistry were off the charts. Their connection so intense, it left me breathless with anticipation. I couldn’t wait to see them together again. I was hopelessly addicted to them and couldn’t stop myself from devouring their story.

Cade is the kind of guy that you just have to know more about. He is sexy and confident. He appears to be a total bad boy. But underneath all the tattoos is a strong, dedicated and just overall good man. A man who is broken, but who has a heart of gold. The kind of man that would do anything for those who were lucky enough to be in his life. The kind of man that knows what he wants and knows what is important in life. The kind of man that brought Angie back to life. And Angie…She’s not perfect. On the outside she appears to have it all: wealth, a great job, family. But, on the inside she is just bursting to be set free. She isn’t happy with the status quo, but is afraid to ruffle feathers. Meeting Cade showed her that she needed more out of her life and that things had to change. Angie had a lot of growing up to do throughout this story, and I won’t lie, there were plenty of times where she just frustrated me to no end. But, I knew her heart was in the right place and that she cared deeply for Cade, she just had to be willing to take the leap.

Overall, I thought Unraveled was a really great read. It was so enjoyable and captivated me right to the very end. I thought this book had just the right amount of sweet and steamy romance, drama and some interesting twists along the way. I think The Ryder Boys Series is off to one to terrific start and I can’t wait to see where this series is going to go next!

Chapter One

The clock flashed ten p.m. on the stand beside me. 
One potato. Two potato. Three.

 

One wiener. Two wiener. Three.

 

Now 10:01 and all I could think of at that moment was… six more minutes. Six more minutes until he came inside me and we were done. Done until the next time. Well, next Saturday night, just like clockwork.

 

Pitch darkness surrounded us in our two-bedroom condo in the most posh area of downtown Rosendell. The only gleam in our room was the brightness from the city skyscrapers outside highlighting the movement of his body against mine. The sweat of his skin slick against my skin. The scent of sex permeated the air.
Sex was always the same. Missionary style on our bed with him pumping into me. I closed my eyes and tried to let the sensations over take my body.
For once, I wished he’d call me sexy, talk dirty…do anything to make me feel as though this wasn’t a job that I was expected to perform. I wanted to feel that connection, like we used to and not feel like we turned into an old married couple when we were merely in our early twenties.
Seven years together wasn’t a lifetime. Being in a relationship shouldn’t seem like a death sentence.

EXCERPT:

When they entered the house, Dakota wasn’t surprised to see that the inside matched that of the outside.  The creaky wooden floors were covered with thin rugs, and tapestries that looked to be made of the same material hung on the walls.  A fire roared in a fireplace, but that was the liveliest thing in the single-room cabin.

        “Put her on the bed,” Monique instructed, and Dakota gently laid Anastasia on the small twin-size bed.

        “I love you,” Dakota whispered, and kissed her pale cheek.  He pressed his forehead to hers.  “Please come back to me, Ana. I can’t live this life without you.  We have to experience that future we’ve dreamed of.”  He placed another kiss to her forehead and then stood.  “If anything happens to her because of you, I don’t give a shit how powerful you are—I will come for you.”

        “You think I’m afraid of you?” Monique’s lip twitched as if she were amused.
