Amazon Review – “A beautifully written love story that is guaranteed to melt you heart!”

Amber’s 5 Star Review
Kindle Alexander does it once again for me, bringing out so many emotions in this wonderful story of connection, acceptance and love. I adored Thane and Levi both individually and as a couple. Two men set in their views, with lots of walls and lots of insecurities. When they meet it was more than electric; seriously the explosions were white hot! But one incredible night brought so many anxieties and freak outs on both parts. I loved that Levi never backed down on his goals, and he held firm to his need to work for whatever he or his brother’s needed. Likewise I loved how Thane has a single focus about what he wants, though Levi Silva definitely rocked his foundation. Watching them find their way to be together has to have made Reservations one of my favorites from KA for sure!! Can’t wait for Julian’s story bc he was so awesome in how he was a friend to both, calling them both out on their stupid! Loved it!!
Jenn’s 5 Star Review
Kindle Alexander has done it again, another emotionally charged, consuming story about two men who truly deserve happiness and find it together. I absolutely adored Thane and Levi and their journey made even better by the appearances from characters from previous books. I fell completely, head over heels for these two men and their passion and love!
Thane is a very driven and successful man, he goes after what he wants and makes it happen. He doesn’t do relationships or emotional attachment and sex is basically a business transaction for him. Levi left medical school to take care of his younger brothers after their father’s death. He has goals of getting back to medical school but that is going to take money, something he doesn’t have much of. Levi is offered a job at a new club called Reservations, a place where he can earn a lot more money. It does mean that he’d be wearing a very skimpy uniform for high paying men though. Levi makes it clear that he will not have sex for money. When Thane first sees his newest employee, the attraction is immediate and undeniable for both men but there’s a major misunderstanding between the two that could jeopardize everything that could be between them.
Once again Kindle Alexander weaves a perfect web of romance, humor, drama, healing and above all else love. Thane has to come to learn that not everything has a price and he definitely some making up to do with Levi. He has to show that he truly cares. Levi has plenty of his own issues as well, and is trying to make the right decisions for his family. This story and these characters went straight to my heart and I loved every bit of it! Another wonderful book from Kindle and I’m already looking forward to their next story!
Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.

I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.

That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.

Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.

“What made the book for me? One word: Gristle.

Gristle, the straight boy, Jay’s best friend, his “bro,” is one of the best characters I’ve had the joy to read this year. His devotion to Jay is breathtaking, his snark so very snappy […]. Read this book if nothing for the character of Gristle. […] Spectacular.”

Book blurb:

 

Walker has two wishes: to perform the play of his dreams alongside his best friend at Wellington’s Tory Street Theatre, and to meet that special someone. Someone he’d go to the ends of the earth for. Someone who might only exist in fairy tales.

When Jay meets accordion busker Lethe Cross, it’s like living a dream come true. Lethe’s music captivates Jay, and he resolves to meet the man who plays so beautifully. But then he discovers Lethe’s life is more like a nightmare. The phrase “down on his luck” can’t begin to cover it. Determined to help, Jay does some snooping for answers—and winds up on the wrong end of a centuries-old curse. The good news is there’s a way to break it. The bad news is it might cost Jay his life.

This book was previously published by Dreamspinner Press. This updated 2nd edition has some rewritten parts and has been line edited again.

 Jenn Review

3.5 – 4 Stars

I thought this was a very touching story, one that was different but very emotional! The book focuses on Jay and Lethe and their journey together, but Gristle is really just as important as the other characters. Life is not easy for any of these characters, they struggle for sure, but they find beauty and love in life, even if it hurts.

Jay and Gristle are the best of friends, are roommates and really are everything to each other. Their goal is to get their play to a good theater, and perform for all to see. They are working hard to make it happen too. They may not have much in the way of money or possessions but they treasure each other and what they have. Then Jay meets Lethe, he plays beautiful music that Jay is drawn to, just like the man himself. There’s something different about him though and when Jay learns the truth it’s shocking for sure. Lethe is cursed, one that’s been handed down for generations, and when people look at him, they see a mask, the face of someone they desperately want to see again. But not Jay, he sees Lethe and the two quickly form a beautiful relationship. Life’s not that easy though and tragedy strikes leaving Jay broken and seeing someone other than Lethe when he looks at him. They truly do love each other though, and now the question is how they make it work?

I did enjoy this story, although for the majority of this read everything felt bitter-sweet. My heart really hurt for all of these characters and what they all had to go through. There really is so much love in this story, but again it felt so bitter-sweet most of the time. These characters love each other so much that they are willing to make sacrifices for each other, just hoping to give happiness to that person. This really was a touching story from start to finish and I especially enjoyed the way it all came together in the end, my heart was finally happy!

Excerpt 

Lethe turned, and I reached to the beginning of the strap. I was tired. It’d been so long now. I missed seeing him. “Really look at me, Lethe.”

“We’ve talked about this.”

“But—”

“It’ll hurt you.” He stopped, swinging away from me, shoulders curving. “I’ll be hurting you. And—”

I rested my forehead on the back of his neck. “When you take it off, I’ll be seeing you. Please, look at me.”

His back shuddered, and his voice came out strained. “I can’t take that risk.”

I tightened my grip on his shoulder and moved my head away. “Don’t you trust me?”

“Yes, I trust you.”

“What is this, then?” My insides hitched with my voice, showing the cracks of the broken me that I struggled to keep together. “I’m sick of looking at that stupid mask, Lethe. It’s been too long.”

Andy Gallo’s stories capture how he wished he’d spent his formative years, instead of how it really happened. Unfortunately for his characters, they find themselves infused with some of Andy’s less noble qualities.

A hopeless romantic, Andy writes seated next to a hundred year old Smith Brothers typewriter he inherited from his grandfather. He also dreams of superheroes and wizards and sees no reason why two men with superpowers can’t fall in love just like everyone else. Although not all of his stories have a paranormal bent, a touch of the supernatural never derailed a good read in his mind.

Married and living his happy ever after, Andy helps others find their happy endings in the pages of his stories. He and his husband of more than twenty years spend their days rubbing elbows with other parents as they raise their daughter. Embracing his status as the gay dad, Andy sometimes has to remind others that one does want a hint of color even when chasing after their child.

 4 Stars
Ever wonder what would happen if an author brought your favorite dirty-talking, alpha male villianish character to life to protect those he cares about, well Aden Lowe has done it with this book! Johnny Quick is The Author’s most famous, foul mouthed character and he is one heck of character, coming on the pages and into the real world. Aden takes you inside Johnny’s mind as he’s sent to help The Author’s PA deal with some jerks at a signing.
I really thought this was a fun read, really going to a different side of the story, changing up the usual romance MO. It was interesting and new and I really enjoyed the ride! Johnny is the rough guy who gets the good guys their HEAs in his books, but never getting his own. That is until he meets an author at the signing, and it changes him, beyond the character he was created to be. It was fun to see those changes progress and how that impacted The Author and his plans.
Aden Lowe really delivers a new, unique view of the book world, the characters and those big author events. It was dramatic, exciting, funny and at times sweet in a Johnny Quick kind of way. I definitely enjoyed this book and I know these are characters that will stay with me!

Soft fingers trailed over my arm and down to my hand, where her fingers laced into mine, and held my full attention. “Let’s go, baby.”

Shocked, I didn’t resist in the slightest, and followed her right on out of the bar, all thoughts of the waitress gone. Who the fuck knew why a gorgeous chick like her would grab a perfect stranger and lead him out of the bar like that, but hell, I wasn’t fighting it. “You know, sugar, all you had to do was ask.”

She led me into the elevator and waited for the door to close.

All or Nothing an all-new, steamy MM romance by Felice Stevens is available NOW!

AllOrNothing-400x600

All or Nothing
by Felice Stevens
Publication Date: October 3rd, 2017
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

A past he couldn’t forget

Adam Barton is living his dream of working as a firefighter in his small Texas town, but a tragedy from his youth continues to haunt him. He decides New York City is the perfect place to start a new life and joins the FDNY, living and loving his own way—no strings and nothing personal. Until he catches sight of Rico Estevez, the sexy chef with the mysterious smile who rocks his world. After one explosive night together, Adam craves another….And then another. The more he and Rico are together, the more Adam wants him.

A future he never imagined

Rico Estevez is living a lie. For years he’s hidden his sexuality, afraid to hurt the career of his politically ambitious father. He’s the perfect American―the best schools, top of his class and most importantly, to his father, a successful businessman. Who needs a boyfriend when sex is so easy to find? Starting a torrid love affair with Adam Barton isn’t a problem; neither one is looking toward forever. But Rico’s father is about to get the chance of a lifetime and Rico feels forced to play by his rules.

Rules are made to be broken

Adam proves more unforgettable than Rico ever imagines, but he gives in to family pressures above personal desire. When a fire reunites them, both men discover their passion for each other hasn’t died; rather it’s stronger than ever. Want turns to need and something more dangerous to their hearts—love. Adam and Rico know if they want to have it all, they can let no one and nothing stand in their way of a life together.

Jenn Review

4.5 Stars

Felice Stevens always delivers an emotional, powerful story and she’s done it again with All or Nothing! I totally fell in love with Adam and Rico and their journey to find happiness. This is a story about accepting and loving who you are and finally opening yourself to real love.

Rico and Adam both go through life avoiding relationships, thinking random hook-ups will do for them. They don’t think that love and commitment is going to be a part of their lives, that is until they act on the intense connection between them. Neither man can seem to stop thinking about the other, despite their initial intentions but both of these men have secrets, ones that may tear them apart.

Rico works hard at his catering store with his business partner Gideon, fulfilling his dream. Despite being his best friend, Rico still keeps Gideon at arms length, never really letting him in. With his father heavily involved in politics, Rico knows he can’t openly come out and live like Gideon and his fiance Jonah. Adam is a firefighter, a proud and brave one, but he lives with the pain of his past, losing his first love.

This story went straight to my heart right from the start. Both of these guys carry around pain but find that when they are together, that pain seems to lessen. They have something so very special together, and even when they are fighting it, it cannot be denied. These two really have to learn to open up and embrace the future, not be stuck in the past and Felice Stevens does a wonderful job creating that journey for these two. I loved how their story came together and seeing both Adam and Rico grow and fall in love with each other. Their story is packed with emotion and love and is another perfect example of why I love Ms. Steven’s books.

Excerpt:

“I don’t know why it’s been so hard to forget this. I should become numb to it like the other guys.”

“That’s not who you are. You care about people. It’s why you do your job so well.”

Surprised at Rico’s insight, Adam gave him a shy smile. “I didn’t think you noticed.”

“I noticed.”

The song ended, yet they remained on the dance floor, with Rico half-hidden in the shadows, silent yet with a presence so overpowering, Adam couldn’t help but be drawn to him. Rico reached up, grasped the nape of his neck, and pressed their mouths together, and as always, it took only the touch of those firm lips to crumble his defenses. They remained on the dance floor, kissing until the sound of whistles and clapping brought Adam back to reality.

Shrugging it off, Rico took his hand, and they returned to the bar, where their burgers awaited them. That revelation by Rico had shaken Adam, and he chewed and swallowed his food, sneaking sideways glances at Rico, frustrated at his inability to gain any sense of Rico’s thoughts behind that neutral mask.

“So how long have you two been dating?” Dale wiped up the counter, getting rid of their empty plates.

Holding his breath, Adam waited for Rico to answer.

“It’s not like that. We’re friends.”

“Yeah.” Adam gave Dale a weak grin, but by the bartender’s dubious expression and quirked dark brow, Rico’s explanation didn’t go far toward convincing Dale.

“Whatever you say, Rico.” He set a fresh foamy glass of beer in front of each of them. “Here’s to your kind of friendship. I’d like to find it for myself.”

“I need to settle the check. Here’s my card.” Rico scowled and flicked the card over to Dale, then took a long drink, finishing half his beer in one gulp. Not once had he looked at Adam since they’d sat down from dancing.

Unsure what to do or say, Adam sat quietly and finished off his drink while Rico signed the receipt. When Rico got up to leave, Adam followed his lead and shook Dale’s hand.

“Thanks for everything.”

“No, thank you. And take care of him. He’s kind of a mess.”

“You coming?” Rico’s face was a storm of emotions.

Without responding to Dale, Adam hurried outside to join Rico, who’d already left. “Rico, wait up.”

Rico halted and turned, his face no less dark than earlier, but Adam recalled his words on the dance floor.

“Uh, thanks for dinner. Do you want—”

“Come back with me?” Rico crowded close, his breath smelling sharp from the beer, and Adam wanted to taste his tongue. “Spend the night?”

While in Leary’s, Adam hadn’t been certain he’d be invited back to Rico’s, but he wasn’t about to question his luck right now.

“Yeah, if you want.”

Rico ran his nose down Adam’s cheek, and goosebumps prickled up his arms despite the warmth of the evening.

“I want,” Rico whispered. “I want you.”

About Felice:

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love, but getting there is oh so fun and oh so sexy.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass (or two of red wine). I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there are bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

BLURB

Psychic Emory Jackson and former black ops specialist Jonathon Silver are men from two completely different worlds with one thing in common: heartbreak. Emory still mourns the loss of his husband five years prior, and Jon is reeling with grief from the recent death of his twin brother.

Sparks fly when mutual friends introduce them, but it’s so much more than basic attraction. There’s an undeniable awareness and a sense of belonging that neither man can deny. Despite Emory’s premonition of a future with Jon, he has vowed never to love again. Jon is convinced that his tainted soul is the reason he will never have someone to call his own. What if they’re both wrong?

Maybe these broken men with their jagged edges could somehow align perfectly to form something whole and beautiful. But will that realization come too late for them?

Jenn Review

4 Stars

Oh man, this story starts off with a major kick to the feels! I really did enjoy this book, it was different from what I was expecting, but definitely a good and emotional story. Jon and Emory are great, if broken characters who truly deserve some happiness in their lives.

Emory and Jon have both experienced great loss in their lives, Emory loses his husband after an accident and Jon’s twin brother is killed. Neither man has room in their heart for another, at least that’s what they think, until they meet each other. There is an instant connection that they both try to fight, and hard but fate seems to be pretty determined to show that these two are just meant to be.

I really liked Emory and Jon and definitely felt for these two, man my heart hurt for these two at times both for what they had been through and for what they were putting each other through fighting their feelings. I felt like I got them though, Emory feeling guilty and not wanting to take away from what he shared with River. I think Aimee Nicole Walker does a great job showing just how much pain Emory felt for his feelings towards Jon in the beginning. I also liked the use of his visions and River’s role in those too. Jon has lived a life devoid of love, minus the months he got to spend with his brother before he dies. Emory brings out something in him, makes him something he never knew was possible. These two are passionate and intense and even in the tough moments you can feel the love they have for each other.

Overall, I really enjoyed this read, I felt connected with these characters and wanted them to be happy. It’s certainly not an easy journey, but both men need to let go of the past and be open to the future to get their HEA! I loved the other characters in the book too, they add such beautiful friendship to Jon and Emory’s lives. This was an emotional and touching story about finding that forever person! I’m definitely curious about Beau and hope we get more of his story!

EXCERPT

“I think we need to clear the air,” Jonathon said in a calm, rational voice.

“There’s nothing to clear,” I countered. “I’m nothing to you; you’re nothing to me.”

“You think it’s that simple?” Jonathon took two steps toward me. I took three steps back. Jon jerked to a stop when he saw my reaction. “Emory…” He broke off and ran both his hands through his hair. “I know you felt it the night we met. I saw your eyes widen in surprise when the electricity shot through our bodies.”

“So.” Denying it existed wasn’t working. It was time to change tactics. “That doesn’t mean I want or will act on it.” I ran my hand over the infinity tattoo I had inked over my heart. It felt like River’s name was burning my skin like he knew the truth and was calling me a liar. Or, maybe it was anxiety that gripped my heart in its tight fist. Whatever the reason, I felt lightheaded and dizzy. Suddenly, my body felt cold and hot at the same time, and tiny little needles pricked my skin from head to toe. I licked my lips that had suddenly gone dry and numb.

“Emory?” I heard Jonathon’s voice, but it sounded like he was calling to me at the end of a very long tunnel instead of five feet away. He walked toward me, but I kept backing away. I hoped he would stop, but I saw the determination in his eyes. “Emory, I just want to help you.”

“Then leave,” I wheezed between gasps.

“I’d never leave anyone alone in this condition,” Jonathon said angrily. “Now be quiet and let me help you.” He gripped my bicep firmly, but not painfully, and guided me to a kitchen chair. He gently set me in the chair then placed his hand on my stomach beneath the center of my ribs and the other on my chest. I burned beneath his touch. I wrapped my hands around his thick wrists and tried to push his hands off of me. “Stop it, Emory,” he said firmly. “You’re hyperventilating, and I can help you. I. Will. Not. Hurt. You.”

Hot tears of humiliation flowed freely down my face. No one had ever seen me in the midst of a panic attack and I’d always been able to pull myself out of them on my own. That one was different, and I knew I needed help.

“Ignore my hands on your body, but look into my eyes and listen to me.” His demanding, deep voice was nearly hypnotic. “Inhale deeply through your nose, Emory. Hold it for a count of three and release it slowly. When you do, you’ll feel my hands moving up and down with your lungs, and your brain will recognize you’re breathing even before the fresh oxygen pushes the carbon dioxide out of your body. Do it with me, Emory.”

I breathed in slowly, held it for three seconds, and released it. I focused on the way his hands moved up and down with my breathing and pretended that I expelled all the bad energy with every exhale. I repeated the process ten or twelve times before I was completely calm again.

Jonathon pulled his hands off of me and balled them into fists. He didn’t look angry or like he wanted to hit me. It looked like he needed to do something with his hands but wasn’t sure what. He lowered himself into a chair beside me.

“What caused your panic attack?”

“You,” I replied sullenly.

“Emory, I haven’t done anything to you so why would the sight of me cause you to panic?” Jonathon sounded truly baffled and a little insulted.

I knew it would take drastic measures to push him away, so I let him have it with both barrels. “I had a psychic vision about you—well. Us.”

Title: Survivor
Author: T.M. Smith
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2017

Taylor Langford’s world is torn apart when he is only thirteen years old—his parents killed, leaving him alone and orphaned. With no living relatives, he’d certainly be another statistic if not for the intervention of the policeman who found Taylor in the crawl space where his mother hid him that fateful night. Despite the tragedy and resulting anguish in his life, Taylor knows how lucky he is.

Frank Moore is a rookie with the Dallas Police Department when he and his partner answer a call in Devonshire, one of the city’s more affluent neighborhoods. They think the young boy in various pictures throughout the home has been kidnapped until they find him, shaken but alive. Officer Moore recognizes the pain in the kid’s eyes, having lost his own mother to cancer when he was just a boy. He steps in, making sure Taylor is placed with a loving foster family. Over the years, Frank becomes a permanent fixture in Taylor’s life.

A decade later, the case remains unsolved and the once gangly, uncertain teenager is now a college graduate who knows exactly what he wants. He’s coming home to the man that helped mold and shape his life, the man he’s loved for as long as he can remember, Frank Moore. But Taylor isn’t the only person returning to Dallas, and while Frank is distracted by his own conflicting feelings and the new bond growing between the two, the past creeps up on them, determined to finish what was started ten years earlier.

A note from the author…

I hope you enjoy Frank and Taylor’s story. It’s been a long road to get them settled, but I’m happy with where this story has taken them. When I started this book, the intent was to write a stand-alone story, but that has changed. Characters continually evolve throughout the writing process, and there are several characters in the book that want to tell their story. I’ve grown especially fond of Rory and I can’t wait to write his book, which will take us back to when he first joined the Bureau, and continue on to his happy ever after.

Please be advised: This is a May/December romance, and as in life, there are sexual situations that take place prior to the main characters finding their way to one another. This is not gratuitous; it is meant to show character growth and self-realization. There is absolutely no cheating.

4.5 Stars
I feel like I have to start by talking about this cover, I am absolutely in love with it! There is something so very beautiful about it, but something that evoked a lot of feeling for me before I even started the story! And oh what a story, I think TM Smith did a great job with this book, it is filled with emotion and love, and while there is pain the love is what wins.
The prologue absolutely got my attention and sent a chill down my spine. I knew immediately I was going to be hooked on this story. Taylor is only 13 when his parents are brutally murdered while he was hidden away in the attic. The police officer who finds him, Frank, waits patiently for Taylor to feel safe enough to come out of his hiding spot. The two form a bond then and it grows as Taylor grows up with Frank always a part of his life. This story alternates between Frank and Taylor’s POVs and starts when Taylor is still a teen. I really liked the early chapters as Taylor grew up, I really felt like I got to know him. As Taylor graduates from college he knows it’s time to confess his true feelings for Frank, and at the same time Frank is thinking the same thing and both men scarred that it could ruin the friendship they already have.
I absolutely adored Frank and Taylor together, once they finally confess their feelings it’s just so natural and loving between them. They have a shared past, one that includes a lot of pain but deep down they know each other so well and have loved each other for so long that their relationship is natural. It may seem like insta-love but I liked it – these two are just meant to be. Just as things settle between Frank and Taylor though the past comes back to get them and the truth comes out about what really happened the night Taylor’s parents were murdered.
There really was so much to love about this story, the bit of mystery surrounding the murders, the deep love between Taylor and Frank and also the wonderful supporting characters. TM Smith does a fantastic job of mixing in humor and sweetness into these characters. Frank’s partner Caleb and his wife are just pure awesomeness and Taylor’s adoptive parents are great, so loving and supportive. I felt like this was an honest story, Taylor struggles with what happened but he has a wonderful support system around him and he has Frank. Overall this was a great read that I could not put down! I love Taylor and Frank and their beautiful, healing love. I’m definitely excited to see what TM Smith is going to do with Rory!!

Ebb and Flow

Title: Ebb and Flow

Author: Andrew Grey

Series: Love’s Charter (Book 2)

Genre:  M/M Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Release Date: Aug 18 2017

Edition/Formats Available In: eBook & Print

Blurb/Synopsis:

To achieve happiness, they’ll have to find the courage to be their own men.

As first mate on a charter fishing boat, Billy Ray meets a lot of people, but not one of them has made him as uncomfortable as Skippy—because he’s drawn to Skippy as surely as the moon pulls the tides, and he’s almost as powerless to resist. Billy Ray has spent his life denying who he is to avoid the wrath of his religious father, and he can’t allow anyone to see through his carefully built façade.

Skippy is only in town on business and will have to return to Boston once he’s through. But he doesn’t count on Billy Ray capturing his attention and touching his heart. After all, his father has certain expectations, and one of them is not him staying in Florida.

Billy Ray doesn’t realize just how much he and Skippy have in common, though. They’re both living to please their fathers instead of following their own dreams—a fact that becomes painfully obvious when they get to know each other and realize how much joy they’ve denied themselves. While they can’t change the past, they can begin a future together and make up for lost time—as long as they’re willing to face the consequences of charting their own course.

Review

4 Stars

Ebb and Flow is the second book in Andrew Grey’s Love’s Charter series and my first book in this series. I haven’t read the first one yet, and while I felt like there was a story there from some of the other characters I didn’t feel like I was really missing anything when it came to my feelings about Skippy and Billy Ray. (Although, I definitely want to read the first one!!) I really enjoyed this story and these characters and felt for what they both went through with their fathers.

Skippy and Billy Ray definitely don’t seem like a natural fit, Skippy is a successful lawyer and Billy Ray has lived in this small town his whole life and works on a fishing boat, but these two have a connection right away and soon find out they have more in common than they ever would have expected. I really liked these two together, they totally worked for me! Both of these men struggle with fathers who do not accept them and yet they spend their lives trying to be what those fathers want. When these two meet, it’s like something clicks for both of them and they realize there is more to life than their fathers opinions.

I liked Skippy but it was Billy Ray that really got to my heart. He is such a sweet guy but has experienced so little love and care in his life. I really loved seeing him grow and embrace his relationship with Skippy. He becomes so much stronger and is a great match for Skippy, showing him what is really important.  Overall, I really did enjoy this book and the characters and am really looking forward to more of this series!

EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN: A Novel

Jessica Redmerski

Fiction & Literature | Post-Apocalyptic | Suspense | Romance

683 pages

Thais Fenwick was eleven-years-old when civilization fell, devastated by a virus that killed off the majority of the world’s population. For seven years, Thais and her family lived in a community of survivors deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. But when her town is attacked by raiders, she and her blind sister are taken away to the East-Central Territory where she is destined to live the cruel and unjust kind of life her late mother warned her about.

Atticus Hunt is a troubled soldier in Lexington City who has spent the past seven years trying to conform to the vicious nature of men in a post-apocalyptic society. He knows that in order to survive, he must abandon his morals and his conscience and become like those he is surrounded by. But when he meets Thais, morals and conscience win out over conformity, and he risks his rank and his life to help her. They escape the city and set out together on a long and perilous journey to find safety in Shreveport, Louisiana.

Struggling to survive in a world without electricity, food, shelter, and clean water, Atticus and Thais shed their fear of growing too close, and they fall hopelessly in love. But can love survive in such dark times, or is it fated to die with them?

 

Excerpt

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I was supposed to travel with him until he got me out
of Lexington City and then I was to make a run for it, kill him if I had to—but I didn’t. I was
supposed to stay with these people and leave Atticus to do what he wanted, go where he
wanted, without me—but I couldn’t. I was supposed to be afraid of him not only because of the
terrible man he was when I first laid eyes on him, but also because he was a man—but I wasn’t.
I wasn’t afraid of him.
I was afraid for him.
I was afraid of being without him…
“Thais?”
I looked up; my bottom lip quivered.
“I will wait for you,” I said, trying to be strong. I wiped my tears, swallowed hard and
nodded.
Atticus dashed outside, pushing the barn door out of his way. Seconds later he came
back with the horse. He tossed the quilt we’d slept on the night in the barn, over the horse’s
back. Then he went over to the backpacks, stepping around Rachel’s unconscious body, and
shoved everything back inside. He helped my arms into the straps of the larger backpack.
Fitting his hands on my hips, Atticus hoisted me up and set me on the horse; I grabbed a
hold of the horse’s reins.
“Stay out of sight of the house,” he said as he fitted the smaller backpack and his jacket
between my legs. “And cut through the woods there”—he pointed toward the back of the
barn—“that’s west; just keep as straight as you can in that direction, but don’t leave the woods.”
I nodded.
He walked with me outside the barn, stopped to look out at the flat land beyond the
highway where those who were coming for us would likely be, and then led me around the barn.
The deep woods beckoned me out ahead; I couldn’t help but feel intimidated by them, as if they
were some kind of final leg of our journey—or the beginning of my journey alone.
Steadying my breath, I looked down at Atticus once more, transfixed on his intense blue
eyes, the sculpted shape and rough texture of his handsome face, and I couldn’t imagine at this
point never seeing it again.
“I’ll come for you,” he promised.
Tearing my gaze from his, I faced forward and tightened my grip of the reins.

THE FORBIDDEN by Jodi Ellen Malpas (August 8, 2017; Forever trade paperback original; $15.99)

A new story of dangerous temptations from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the This Man trilogy. 

Annie has never experienced the ‘spark’ with a guy – the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It’s not just a spark that ignites between them. It’s an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.

Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who’s had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she’s already in too deep. And Jack isn’t only dangerous. He is forbidden.

“Every kiss, every sexy scene, every word between this pair owned a piece of my soul.  I could read this book a hundred times and still react as if it was the first time.  The Protector is a top 2016 fave for me.” –Audrey Carlan, #1 bestselling author of The Calendar Girl series

 

jenn-review

3.5 – 4 Stars

So, this is one of those tough reviews for me! This story is beautifully written, it’s intense and hot (I mean come on, it’s Jodi Ellen Malpas) but it’s definitely forbidden! Yes, it has the perfect title. This is one of those books that will test you, how you feel about these characters and what you think about true love. Love isn’t always neat and doesn’t just show itself when and where you want it, sometimes the circumstances are messy and hard and mistakes are made, but in the end does true love find a way through the ugly.

That pretty much sums up how I felt about Annie and Jack. I wanted to love them, I did but I struggled. It’s clear they have a connection and passion and that I did love about them but there is a lot of gray area in this story. I will say that Jodi delivers an incredible story, one that will suck you in, that you just have to keep to reading to find out what actually happens to Jack and Annie.

Blog Tour Excerpt

 

“Thank you for your help,” I say quietly, studying him, definitely detecting that he’s deep in thought. Don’t ask, don’t ask, don’t ask. I need to get back into my apartment without engaging with him, which could prove tricky when he’s blocking the doorway and looking like he has no intention of shifting to let me in.

“Annie,” he breathes. “I’m struggling so badly.”

“I’m not doing this.” I swallow, pushing my way past him. He grabs me by the top of my arm and holds me in place. “Let me go, Jack.”

“I’ve already told you I can’t do that. Annie, I’m drowning here. I’m going out of my mind, and the more time I spend with you the fucking worse it’s getting. Listening to you, talking to you, sharing a passion with you that goes way beyond the amazing time we had in bed together.”

“You have to forget!” I yell, knowing anger is the only way forward. Be angry with him. Let it dominate me and rule me, because the alternative scares me to fucking death.

He pushes me into the hall and slams the door behind us, forcing me to back up. “No,” he says, straight and even. “No,” he repeats, moving one more step forward, except this time I don’t retreat. Because I can’t. Because he has me locked in place with those grey eyes, and now they’re back to their full glory. Sparkling, even if it’s with anger. He reaches for his shirt and starts unbuttoning it before shrugging it off and throwing it to the floor, revealing the chest that’s haunting me.

I quickly look down at the pile of material, my mind reeling. His chest. His perfect damn chest. “What are you doing?”

“I have no fucking idea.” He reaches for me and slides a hand around my neck, pulling me to him. Our chests meet, and my determination to repel him vanishes under our connection. Wrongs turn into rights. Conflict turns into craving.

“I can’t get you out of my head, Annie.” His forehead meets mine, his palm massaging away the tightness in my neck muscles, softening me up until I relax in his hold. “I want you all over again, and I can’t even find the will to worry about how much more that’ll make me want you.” He breathes down on me. “I’ve played that night on repeat. I’ve dreamed of holding you in my arms again. I’ve craved the sound of your voice, the feel of your touch, the softness of your lips on mine. I know I shouldn’t want you. But I do. Nothing has ever made me feel this insane with need. Nothing has taken up so much space in my head. I can’t fucking help it, Annie.” His grey gaze sinks into me, my heart steadying to an even thrum. His head starts to shake mildly, his splayed hand moving up to the back of my head and fisting my hair. “I don’t want to help it,” he growls. “I want you. I don’t care how wrong it is.” His clenched fist tightens, gripping my hair harshly. “I know I’ve been on your mind since I fucked you every which way in that hotel room. Stop denying it. Don’t insult me and tell me you don’t crave that amazing feeling all over again. I can see it in your eyes every damn time I look into them. You. Want. Me.”

It’s me who moves in first. All me. I lunge forward and smash my lips to his, the magnetic force winning. His words winning. Jack winning. My heart winning. I coax his mouth open with hard, hungry kisses. I’ve lost my mind to a craving too powerful to fight off. And, like Jack, I don’t care how wrong it is.

Lost.

Yet as he walks me backward until my back slams into the wall, I feel found again.

I cry out, and Jack moans. We’re clumsy and desperate. He’s pushing me up the wall with the force of his kiss, then he’s rolling away, taking me with him until it’s his back slamming into the wall. It’s the elevator all over again. The atmosphere is sizzling. I’m on fire. He scoops me up, pinning me to him, and carries me into my bedroom. I focus on him. Only him and the return of feelings that I’ve fantasized about since that unforgettable night. All the guilt is abandoning me, and I let it, unprepared to let anything stop me from taking the forbidden.

It could be their undoing, the end. His end.

This is war, blood will spill, and someone in the heart of the Brandon family will not survive….

5 Stars

Okay, if you haven’t read the first two books in the Dirty Money series, stop now and go read them! Bad Deeds definitely cannot be read as a standalone. Now that that’s out of the way oh holy moly – Lisa Renee Jones that cliffhanger – I can’t even!

The Brandon family and Emily are back and just as intense as ever! Shane is still working hard to keep the villains, including his own brother, out of Brandon Enterprises, but it is no easy feat. His father and mother are dishing out their own mind games and it really just feels like you never know what is coming next. The cartel is involved even deeper and players are starting to reveal themselves. Emily and Shane’s bond continues to hold strong despite what is going on around them.

Lisa Renee Jones really creates a powerful, ruthless story full of mystery and suspense and what the hell is happening, and I can’t get enough. This is one of those books that I just couldn’t put down and I NEED MORE! The ending ripped me apart and I feel like there is a part of me just holding my breath until I can find out what has really happened. I really have loved this series, it’s complicated and edgy mixed with passion and love. You think you’ve got something figured out and then there’s a new twist making you re-think every theory. I definitely cannot wait to see what happens next and seriously, if you haven’t read this series you really should!

Excerpt:

“What is in your head right now?”

His eyes heat, darken. “You. Always.” He inches back and looks at me. “You’re mine. Mine to protect.” His voice is low, fierce, and he grips my panties and yanks them away. “Mine to fuck.”

I gasp and grab his shoulders. “Shane.”

His answer is to wrap his arm around my waist, pull me close, his cheek against mine, his fingers pressing into the V of my body. “Wet, just the way I like you,” he says, pressing two fingers inside me. “Wet for me. And too fucking perfect for my sanity sometimes.”

“That doesn’t sound like a compliment,” I pant out, grabbing the lapel to his suit as a sweet ache begins to build in my sex as his thumb strokes my clit.

“And no one else,” he murmurs, nipping my earlobe, “will ever touch you like this.” His fingers caress deeper inside me. “No one,” he adds, “will ever make you say their name like I want you to say mine right now. Say it.”

“Shane,” I whisper, and not because he wants me to, but rather because it’s there on my lips, the way I wish his tongue was on my lips now. “Shane, I—”

Seeming to know what I need, he cups my head and kisses me, long, slow, sensual strokes of his tongue that somehow make every touch of his fingers more intense.

“Come for me,” he murmurs, and this time when he kisses me, I start climbing that wall to release, and I’m there at the top in an instant. I stiffen while his fingers and tongue tease, please, and then I jerk, I’m over it, tumbling in an instant into shudders and shakes. Shane’s lips lift from mine as he breathes with me. His fingers slow as he eases me through the waves until I collapse against his chest.

He tangles his fingers in my hair and drags my mouth back to his. “And no one but me will ever make you come like that again,” he declares, the waves of his emotions beating down any embarrassment I might feel over having had an orgasm on his father’s desk.

“No one has ever made me feel what you make me feel, Shane.”
