REVIEW:

All I can say is wow I really enjoyed this book, I was lucky I got to read it straight after book one.
This is a complete story, with some spoilers if you decide to go back and read book one after you finish this one.
This is about time travel, and how love can influence the universe. This one is centred on a group of people, most in both books. We have David and Stella who first meet when she is in labor waiting to have baby all on her own at 21 and scared. When a handsome older man is in the waiting room. And begins to talk to her, and stays with her through the birth even sleeping chair. All Stella knows is how safe she feels, and he seems like a guardian angel.
That is the start of an intense and great piece entertaining Sc-Fi Time Travel romance that spans many years and adventures. This is told from Stella’s POV and the inside story with her relationship with David. That is a simplified description, but I don’t want give any spoilers away. I love a good piece of Time Travel romance so this was right up my street. Now I can’t wait for book three to see things from another pov, or anything else Brona mills writes. I’m pleased I’ve discovered another author to watch out for.

READ MY REVIEW:

Means the first book in Kennedy Layne new series the Office Roulette Trilogy, and how one man’s murder effects everyone working for him.
Brad Manon whose hedge fund company Manon Investments is found dead in the opening chapter. Laurel leaves her lovers bed to collect some paper work she needed. Unfortunately Laurel finds her boss and calls the police.
This is centred on Laurel and her relationship with Smith Gall, a handsome, sexy dynamic man. When the police start to investigate everyone’s skeletons come flying out the cupboard. Making you realise, how well do you know your colleagues that you work with every day and side by side?
This book is hot and sexy and surrounds Laurel and Smith relationship which is now out in the open. This a Kennedy Layne at her best we don’t find who the killer is yet, but we are left with plenty of suspects.
The next book in the trilogy is called Motive and centers on Rye Marshall and Grace Dorrance. I hope some insight into the murder. This Kennedy Layne at her best combining Murder with a HOT sexy love story.

Read an excerpt from MEANS

I couldn’t bring myself to end it.” Laurel Calanthe pulled open the pristine glass door that led to the offices of Manon Investments. The well-established hedge fund catered only to high net worth individuals and select business partnerships. The expensive décor was designed with those clients in mind.

In all honesty, even the air smelled of the same linen used in the manufacturing of U.S. currency. The heavy fragrance hanging in the air never failed to bring a smile to Laurel’s lips.

The fact that the door was unlocked meant someone was still burning the midnight oil, but that wasn’t unusual in their line of business. Brad Manon was fanatically selective in who he chose to add to the employment at his firm, most often ensuring the analysts understood loyalty and the importance of total commitment. Such marked dedication went the whole nine yards when it came to bonus time.

It was going on one o’clock in the morning on a Friday night, but that didn’t matter in the financial world. One of the world’s markets was always open, trading, and willing to take money from the fund’s capital holdings.

“You’ve worked too hard to give up your success for Smith Gallo,” Grace reprimanded, her voice of reason coming through loud and clear over the cell phone. Unfortunately, no advice she offered now could take back the fact that Laurel had just spent the last three glorious hours in Smith’s bed. “I’m not saying that you shouldn’t have a personal life, but does it have to be Smith? You’re both up for partnership. How’s it going to look if word gets out that the two of you are sleeping together?”

“That I’ve got tremendous taste?” Laurel asked halfheartedly, recognizing that she’d only put off the inevitable. It wasn’t good for her career to get involved with her competition nor was it wise to dip one’s quill in company ink. Oh, Smith had definitely dipped his quill in company ink. She’d even questioned if the partnership wasn’t why Smith had propositioned her to begin with, though their attraction had started long before either of them were up for promotion. Did he believe he could ruin her chances if Brad discovered their indiscretions? “I know, I know. I’ll tell him tomorrow that we should take things down a notch or two.”

Soft backlighting accentuated the empty reception area, though she didn’t pause on her way across the tiled entrance. She had one last destination in mind for the workday, and that was her private office where she’d left some files she’d planned to take home with her this weekend. Her black high heels clicked on the marble tile with each step she took until she reached the plush carpet of the private hallway.

“A notch or two?” Grace wasn’t being fooled in the least. “I was at today’s morning meeting, Laurel. The papers in your hand almost combusted from the way Smith was staring at you. Taking it down a notch isn’t going to cut it, not even close.”

“You only noticed that because you already know about the two of us.”

Laurel continued to walk down the hallway, noticing that a dim light was coming from Brad’s office. His private domain was located at the end of the corridor. The spacious corner office overlooked the beautiful city of Minneapolis, but he wasn’t the type to have an open-door policy. Quite the opposite. It hadn’t always been that way, but his demeanor had changed in the past few years… and not for the better.

It seemed it was in her favor to have stopped by for the files she needed, even at this time of the night when her boss was still here. Her presence in the office so late on a Friday would look good come next week when a final decision was to be made regarding the partnership slot.

Her chance at turning the fates was in the making.

“Look, Smith has a reputation for business and with women.” Grace muffled a yawn, reminding Laurel of the time. “Mixing the two together is just a recipe for disaster. I don’t want to see you get hurt.”

Laurel rested her tongue against the back of her teeth in an effort to counter that sentiment. Smith only allowed the world to see what he wanted them to see, and nothing more. He’d been born into one of the most prestigious families in the city, but he’d worked hard to make a name for himself based on I contribution to society. He was an enigma to most of the people he interacted with on a daily basis. He was nothing like his spoiled siblings who lived off their trust funds while traipsing around the world with the jet set crowd.

“I’m not going to get hurt,” Laurel argued, not truly believing her own contradiction. She had no idea where she stood with Smith, other than the sex was scorching hot. “Listen, I can’t talk about this now.”

She reached around the wall of her office and flipped on the overhead light. She hung the strap of her purse on the door handle before continuing down the corridor. Her heels sunk into the plush carpet as she got closer to Brad’s office door. It would ultimately benefit her if she dropped by and checked in, letting him see that she took her work seriously.

“Brad’s working late,” Laurel said, lowering her voice so that it didn’t carry through the empty hall. “I should say hello so that he knows I’ve been by.”

Laurel waited for Grace to acknowledge her bid at goodbye, not bothering to stop outside the doorway. She took a step into Brad’s office. The upcoming moment was mapped out in her head like a gambit in a game of chess.

She’d finish her phone conversation, not letting on that it was a personal call. He didn’t need to know that she wasn’t speaking with the London office. Such an appearance could only assist her in the meeting by the board in regard to the partnership, in which Brad’s opinion weighed heavily with the other partners.

Unfortunately, her night just went from bad to worse.

“… got an early breakfast with my mom,” Grace explained with disdain, not having the best relationship with her mother. Grace had no idea of the gravity of horror Laurel had just discovered. “Give me a call when—”

“I think… I think he’s dead.”

Laurel closed her eyes in disbelief, ignoring the hot sensation that practically singed her lashes. She hadn’t been sleeping well lately, and with the amount of overtime she’d been putting in at the office and additional hours she shouldn’t have spared in Smith’s bed, it was obvious she was having an acute panic attack.

The grisly sight before her didn’t change when she blinked her eyes multiple times. She tried to curtail her rapid breathing, afraid she would hyperventilate on one of the gasps in the back of her throat. She leaned back against the doorframe of her boss’ office and did her best to stop retching. She attempted to recover, seeking the support of her best friend, along with a dose of realism.

“Grace, I think he’s dead,” Laurel managed to say once again, her voice no louder than a whisper as she struggled to maintain what little composure she could muster.

Brad Manon couldn’t be dead.

  • Do you believe certain types of writing translate better into audiobook format?  
    • Yes. I think 1st person works best for audio in my opinion, especially if the narration portions are written in a more conversational tone rather than straight descriptions. Great dialogue also makes for a fun listen.
  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • No. When I signed my contract, my publisher did not have a contract with ACX. About a year later, my publisher provided its authors the option to add an audiobook to our existing contracts. I opted in, but by that time my book was almost done going through the first round of edits, so I didn’t originally write it with the intent of it going to audio.
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • While my publisher holds the rights and they put the project up for bid on ACX, I searched for narrators on my own and invited them to submit an audition through ACX. When I found Vanessa Moyen I knew she had to be one. Her voice was perfect and embodied the essence of my main female character.
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process?
    • We emailed back and forth many times. Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters? Yes, Vanessa is very committed to her work and she wanted to make sure she portrayed every character as they were written. We discussed character bios, personalities, and physical traits (including celebrity look-a-likes)
  • Were there any real life inspirations behind your writing?
    • While the story is fictional, I did draw from some real life experiences. Some were my own, others I borrowed from the life around me. My characters all have traits of people I know.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out?
    • What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing? I take writing breaks. Sometimes, I take too many and it pulls me out of  my writing zone more than I intended. My first book took me 5 years to write. I can’t let that be my average rate. TV and social media can be very distracting, so while it’s good to break from the writing screen, unplugging is also necessary if you want to get stuff done.  
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • Yes, but I only became a listener about a year ago. I tried it because people were raving about the narrator for a book series I loved (The Red Rising Saga) and I figured I’d give it a go. Once I started, I fell in love. A great narrator can bring a book to life almost as vividly as a movie can. Plus, I get to listen as I go, which means I get to “read” more books than I normally would. Helps me catch up on my TBR list.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • I think Vanessa did a phenomenal job at bringing forth Sara’s pain and guilt for the loss of her mother. I wanted to write the character as a spunky, witty, strong female, but I know she can come off too headstrong at times. I think Vanessa was able to soften Sara’s character, making Sara even   more relatable to women her age.
  • If you had the power to time travel, would you use it? If yes, when and where would you go?  
    • I am a bit of a sci-fi junky so time travel is a very interesting topic for me. The answer is complicated. As I understand it to be, if time travel were possible, it would only be possible to travel through time as long as you were traveling on a different plane/dimension. You couldn’t really time travel within our own dimension. Something to do with the space time continuum. Or maybe I made that up lol. So, yes, I’d time travel, although I don’t know when/where I’d go. I’d spin the wheel and let it take it me wherever whenever.
  • Do you have any tips for authors going through the process of turning their books into audiobooks?
    • Finding a narrator is not easy. Many do not do royalty share as the pay off can be small, especially for unproven work. And unless you are with a big publishing house, paying out of pocket for the per finished hour rates can be very expensive. Still, there are new emerging narrators out there trying to get their feet wet who are willing to take a chance on you because you are taking a chance on them. It will take a while to find a great one, but he or she is out there. Don’t settle just because you want that audiobook. Find the perfect match. It will make all the difference.
  • What’s next for you?
    • I am currently working on the sequel and conclusion to Wicked Dance. I also have an urban fantasy on the back burner, and I can’t wait to bring those characters out to play soon.

Dream Cast Nina Dobrev as “Sara”

Parker Young as “Tom”

Kristen Bell as “Jenn”

Bradley Cooper as “Jake”

Wicked Dance is a story of a dancer, who gave up a promising career on Broadway after car accident that killed her mother 4 years before. So when we meet Sara she is as an assistant to the head of the Dance School. Sara hates her boss Rebecca, who is an obnoxious women, who treats Sara shabbily.
Sara believes that she deserves to be unhappy, and keeps her emotions bottled up inside. Then she meets Tom and their connection is instant. What follows is a dance where they both try to understand their feelings for each other. They both have secrets they are hiding from each other.
This audiobook is 11hours long and ends suddenly, so we know there is another one coming.
I have to be honest Sara drove me mad, she seemed very immature, especially with her dealings with Tom. The sex is hot and Tom was swoonworthy and very romantic. It made me feel tired listening to the fast pace of the narrator, and listening from mostly from Sara’s POV .I think just because I was not blown away, we can’t all enjoy the same things. I would probably read something else from Olivia Boothe.
The narrator was very clever with the different voices and accents.

 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Olivia Boothe. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Review Tour: COLD BLOODED ( Cold Justice Series #10 ) by New York Times Bestselling Author TONI ANDERSON @toniannanderson @InkslingerPR

COLD BLOODED cb-available6[160395] BANNER

About COLD BLOODED

Searching for the truth…

Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body face-down in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine that her friend overdosed then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it.

Special Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn’t trust journalists and has no patience for Pip’s delusions, especially since her meddling could reveal why the FBI is interested in her friend’s last days. The dead scientist worked at the cutting edge of vaccine research and might have a connection to a new, weaponized, vaccine-resistant anthrax strain that just hit the black market.

…just turned deadly.

Pip is thrown off her game by grief and her unexpected attraction to the handsome federal agent. Hunt battles the same unwelcome pull, determined to resist the heat that threatens to consume them both. But the more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the sexy FBI agent, and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than capable of cold-bloodedly sacrificing anyone who gets in his way.

REVIEW:

Cold Blooded is another winner from Toni Anderson. Keeping me up well into the night reading about Pip and Hunt and their search for the anthrax dealers. I really felt the emotions from the situation that Pip found herself in, finding her best friend dead in the lake by her house. It enjoyable to watch the love hate relationship with Hunt and Pip their connection they fought all through the book.
As always I was compelled to read this enthralling book in one go, leaving me very tired the next day. Trying to write this without spoilers is difficult, but I was very upset with Toni about the fate of one of the agents. This is a great series and we were introduced to some new characters in this slice of Cold Justice. If you are new to the series, this works well as a standalone as we have the complete story.
I can’t recommend this series enough, and have been trying to catch up with the earlier books by listening to some on Audiobook. Okay enough rambling from me I loved this book as it has everything I love, excitement, intrigue, and mystery and even love what else can you asked for? Thank you Toni Anderson.

ARC Review: KNOCKED UP by STACEY LYNN @staceylynnbooks


Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn

Publication Date: June 12th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Knocked Up Cover_resize

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. Just not necessarily in that order….

Braxton: I should probably be dead or in jail right now. Instead, thanks to some tough love, I worked my ass off and now I own a string of tattoo parlors throughout the Pacific Northwest. And yet the one thing I’ve always wanted—a family—still seems out of reach. When my best friend gets married, I’m just hoping to blow off some steam with the super-hot maid of honor. But after Cara Thompson tracks me down to tell me she’s pregnant, she’s more surprised than I am when I tell her I’m all in.

Cara: For the first time in my life, I’m living for myself—not for my parents and their ridiculous expectations. I gave up on my MBA, dropped out of the Ivy League, and moved to Portland to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. And what’s the first thing I do? Get knocked up. For a tatted-up sex god, Braxton Henley seems way too eager to “be there for me.” Is this guy serious? Maybe. He sure is patient. Because he won’t back down until I admit what I know in my heart: that our one night stand might’ve led me to the one.

KnockedUP-AN

REVIEW:

Knocked up is a cut above, most of baby daddy books that are around at the moment.
Braxton and Cara met at their mutual friends wedding, and spent a wonderful night of sex. Cara being embarrassed slipped out in the morning.
Six weeks later Cara discovers she is pregnant, what follows is a couple learning about each other. On the surface they come from different backgrounds, so it’s about meshing their life and friends together.
I loved Braxton and Cara, as we know without problems and misunderstandings there would be no story. Through it all you can feel their emotions and love for each other, all the way to their happily ever after. An enjoyable and quick read. A good book to fill up your device with to read on your holiday or anywhere else. I have to just say Cara’s parents were awful, no spoilers just an entertaining read.

Floundering and unsure of how to cope with their grief, Alyssa and her husband drift apart until they are living as roommates instead of a deeply connected couple. Alyssa will do anything to get the intense passion back into her life and marriage, no matter how far out of the box she has to step.

If there is one thing tattoo shop owner Derek knows, it’s that once he set his sights on his wife, he never wanted another woman. Years together haven’t begun to put a dent in his desire for her. But everything falls apart when the anguish of loss barges into their lives. Adrift in his own suffering, Derek doesn’t realize how damaged his marriage is until his wife forces him to confront their issues. Now, he’ll do whatever it takes to get their lives back on track, even if the plan seems outrageous.

This is the first in a new series and deals with a very sad subject. Derek and Alyssa have always been happy and madly in love. Then everything falls apart.
Their daughter Katie dies of cancer, and the couple are devastated, and after both grieving separately they find they have drifted apart.
This is the story of how the couple find their way back to each other.
Alyssa finally decides to try an unusual ways to connect with her husband. This is a very sad story, but is told in dual POV so we realise how the couple work their way back to each other. Alyssa and Derek finally realise how much they still love each other. I have to say the sexy parts are HOT, but you will still need tissues for the sad bits.
This story stayed with me, well after the recording had finished
The Narration is superb with Noah and Erin, who are so versatile they bring this story of hope and love to life.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lilly Atlas. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Top 10 List

Top 10 Reasons why Lilly Atlas turned Escapades into an audiobook and why she chose Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard as narrators

10   Fun! It’s so much fun to hear my written word come to life. I get so antsy waiting to hear the chapters as Noah and Erin get them recorded.

  1. Award-winning narrators – Noah and Erin won the 2016 Audie award for Best Erotica Audiobook. You know that means they’re going to set your ears on fire.
  1. Love working with Noah and Erin – You can tell that both Noah and Erin really love what they do, and that comes through in their narrations. They are great friends and fantastic to work with and that really shines through in their audiobooks.
  1. Sexy – Let’s be honest here, this is a sexy book! Listening to it takes it to a new level. Audible didn’t make the “skip to the good parts” feature for nothing!
  1. Emotional story – Alyssa and Derek’s story is an emotional journey. You may have to grab a tissue or two (though I promise the HEA). There’s something about hearing the emotions acted out by Noah and Erin that makes the story really gripping.
  1. Growth as an author – Putting my books in audio has given me the opportunity to grow as an author. Part of that is expanding my reach to different readers/listeners, but a larger part is growing my actual writing. I now spend time thinking about how the books will sound as well as how they’ll read while I’m writing.
  1. Duet – I love duet narration, which is when the female narrator reads all female parts in each chapter regardless POV and vice versa with the male narrator. I think it makes conversation flow so well and feels like listening to a movie or play. Erin and Noah are lucky enough to be able to record together and their duet narrations are wonderful!
  1. Have you ever listened to anything by Noah and Erin before? If you then you know that they are just plain fantastic together. They play off each other so well and make the story come to life in a way that is very different but no less captivating than reading. Neither of them is ever just reading the book, they are acting out the story taking it to another level! They give good aural, as they say in the world of steamy audiobooks.
  1. Love giving the option of reading/listening – Audiobook lovers are popping up all over the place these days. For me, it’s a no-brainer to put my books in audio format. There are so many readers/listeners who like to switch between the written book and audiobook. Of course I’m going to give them what they want!
  1. Allows me to give my stories to people who don’t/can’t read traditionally – I’m obsessed with reading. To me, there is nothing better than getting lost in an author’s fictional world. There are many people who, for various reasons, aren’t able to read a traditional book. Be it time constraints, dyslexia, vision impairments, or any other host of reasons, no one should be denied the ability to dive into fiction for a while.

ARC Review: DEFENDING DANI ( Alaska Blizzard Book One ) by KAT MIZERA @AuthorKatMiz @LWoodsPR

 

Single hockey dad meets virgin nanny…can she crack the ice around his heart?
Defending Dani by Kat Mizera is AVAILABLE NOW!

Amazon ➙ https://amzn.to/2rwv7bh
iBooks ➙ https://apple.co/2jDxJzx
Nook ➙ http://bit.ly/2jFdpxT
Kobo ➙ http://bit.ly/2KFC3KO

Professional hockey player Sergei Petrov has had a rough time after the tragic loss of his wife. Playing hockey and taking care of his son are all he has time for, all he wants. Getting traded was not on the agenda. Neither was a sexy, hockey-playing nanny to further complicate things.

Star college athlete Danielle Cloutier may dominate the rink, but off the ice, she’s an amateur. She has been trying to get rid of her virginity for years, but guys are always intimated by her strength. That’s about to change when she meets her new boss.

Chemistry between them sizzles, hot enough to melt the most frozen of hearts, but Danielle can’t afford to get attached. Not when she’ll be leaving soon.

Sergei doesn’t know what to do with the sexy, stubborn woman, but watching her turn his new house a home makes him wonder if she’s exactly what he needs. Can he come to terms with his feelings before she skates out of his life for good?

REVIEW:

Defending Dani is the first in a spin off series from the Las Vegas Sidewinders. So we meet quite a few characters from previous books in the Series.
So the Dani in the title is Zakk’s little sister, so when Sergei gets traded to The Alaska Blizzards which is based in Anchorage. Sergei is a widower with a small son Nico, and Dani agrees to go to help Sergei and Nico set up home, and help look after Nico.
Dani plays hockey, and is training for the Olympics team. So Dani is a sportswoman in her own right. For the first time since his wife was killed Sergei feels like his at home, as they live play house Sergei has fallen hard, but won’t stand in Dani’s way.
I really enjoyed this couple Dani and Sergei were wonderful together, but what happens when you let the person you love go because you think you would hold them back? Get this book and find out, all those buff bodies playing hockey, Sorry I’m still dreaming.
There is plenty going on in this book, it was like visiting family with all the friends and families there. I can’t wait for book two in this new series.
This is told by dual pov and can be read as a standalone, I can’t get enough of Kat’s Hockey Romances.

About the Author:

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

ARC Review: ONLY HIM by USA Today Bestselling Author MELANIE HARLOW!

 

OnlyHimBookCover5x8_MEDIUM[159715]

Only Him, an all-new sexy and emotional second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available NOW!

MHOnlyHimBookWrapFB[159712]

 

Sometimes your first love deserves a second chance…

He was my first crush, my first kiss, my first everything.

But I’m not a lovesick teenager anymore, and I’d never let that cocky troublemaker break my heart again.

So when he shows up out of the blue asking me to have dinner with him “for old time’s sake,” I say I will. After all, it’s been twelve years, and I’m stronger and smarter than I was back then.

Except…he still does something to me. He’s got those eyes that make me weak, those hands that drive me wild, and a body I can’t resist—especially once I see the tattoos. It doesn’t take long for our trip down memory lane to go from sweet to sizzling.

We’re just as good together as we were back then—better, even—and I’m willing to give the only man I’ve ever loved another chance.

But he’s got to tell me the truth.

* * *

All I wanted was to see her again. Tell her I’m sorry. Make her smile.

Okay, that’s a lie. I wanted to do more than that—a lot more. But I know she’s better off without me, and I promised myself I’d behave.

Except I’ve never been much good at keeping promises…or my hands to myself when I’m around her.

I can make her laugh, I can make her cry, I can make her body surrender to mine in ways that neither of us could have imagined back then. I can—and I do—love her more than she’ll ever know.

But I can’t tell her the real reason why I’m here.

And I can’t stay.

REVIEW:

Only Him is a second or third chance romance, we have Dallas who left town many years before. Maren was his high school sweetheart and the love of his life. Unfortunately his parents sent him away to boarding school to straighten him out. He had very little notice, so when he left he never said goodbye.
The present day Dallas works in a tattoo shop in Portland miles from where he grew up. After a life threatening diagnosis he decides to say goodbye to Maren on the way to Boston to see a specialist.
I’ve just realised I’m rehashing the story and you want to discover that for yourself.
Unfortunately for me I’ve been in Dallas’s position and can understand wanting to connect we people we love.
This is a scorching hot sexually, but the love between Maren and Dallas is pure and enduring. I loved this story and enjoyed every minute. I was left with  feeling good and happy.

Wings of Flesh and Bones
Cathrina Constantine
Publication date: April 13th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult

An Angel. A Witch. A Demon. And A Choice.

Creatures from outer realms suck, as any gatekeeper worth their salt will tell you. Welcome to Rogan’s life, an orphaned seventeen-year-old who lives and trains with other misfits under her uncle’s roof, keeping Earth safe from non-human realm jumpers. Rogan’s biggest issue concerns her uncle’s short leash with her freedom—that is of course, until she’s taken by a notorious witch, and her life begins to unravel. Soon, the supernatural beauty discovers there’s a reason her uncle kept such a tight lock on her whereabouts, and that she has more than angel blood running through her veins.

Eighteen-year-old Max is an angel, and Rogan’s mentor and guardian. He’s well aware of her tenacious inability to obey orders, though he also knows she’s a fierce fighter. When he’s involved in a scheme that ultimately gets Rogan kidnapped, he must battle his way back to her in an attempt to save her from the darkness threatening to possess her.
