    SALE!! Limited Time Only!! Collecting The Pieces by L.A. Fiore!!

    Collecting the Pieces AMAZON.jpg
    At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last…a fairy tale of my very own.

    But this story isn’t about Jake. It’s about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me—downright pisses me off at times—but he also brings me back to life.

    My name is Sidney Ellis and this is my story of finding love twice—the first when I needed it most and the second when I never saw it coming.

    Review: Rock Chick Reawakening

    Rock Chick Reawakening Rock Chick Reawakening by Kristen Ashley
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    5 "No more building castles" stars!!

    This book was amazing!! It's the story of how Daisy and Marcus started and to say that this made me happy (after so long) would be an understatement!! This book was classic Kristen Ashley and the Rock Chick crew were just as I remembered them. Daisy was very much a southern belle, Dolly Parton-esque, slightly tacky stripper but you couldn't help but love the hell out of her. We learn about her beginnings and it sure wasn't pretty. But every time I read her say "Honey bunches of oats" or "Honey bunches of love", I giggled. This girl was HILARIOUS and so CUTE!!

    To be completely honest though, it was Marcus's character that brought this story home for me. I fell in love with the way that he loved Daisy. He was a man accustomed to getting what he wanted, when he wanted it. No questions. No waiting. But with Daisy he was patient, kind, considerate, generous, compassionate, understanding, loving, and let's not forget that throughout all of that, he was obviously Alpha.

    Reading this novella, which truth be told read more like a full-length book, reminded me why I consider each KA book a one-clicker. It reminded me why I remain a dedicated fan to her work. Her stories are real and the plots are NEVER stagnant. Yes, her books follow a formula. But it's the KA formula, which has been tried, tested and true. Often copied but never duplicated. KA is one of a kind and this story gave proof that not only is she the Queen of Alphas, but she can create an absolutely beautiful Prince Charming!

    Passing Peter Parker by JD Hollyfield


    J.D. HOLLYFIELD is turning up the heat in Comedy.
    #hotcom #nerdalert #KU #whoispeterparker

    Synopsis 


    Miss Thompson is a substitute teacher with legs for miles and a foul mouth. Mr. Parker is a nerdy science teacher who loves to taunt and tease with his wicked tongue.

    Together they learn a lesson in chemistry and how opposites attract. Their sex is getting an A but will Miss Thompson pass Peter Parker? Or is this just a little fun until school's out for the summer?

    Excerpt


    He lays us down on the soft bedding, adjusting himself above me. His eyes bore into mine,
    the intensity sending a wave of heat to my core.

    “You’re in my house, in my bed. I have a long list of things I plan to, and will, do to you.
    So, if this isn’t what you want, tell me now.” His blunt words cause my heart rate to spike.
    I can feel him already hard on my stomach.

    “Do I get a preview of what I’m in for if I say yes?” My voice now thick with lust.
    I already know I’ll let him do anything to me, but the arousal of him telling me just what
    he plans on doing, already has me wet.

    “I’m going to lick, suck, and bite every single part of your body. Parts never touched
    before. I’m going to make you beg, scream, moan. I’m going to push you to a limit that
    may threaten to break you, but the pleasure will be just as rewarding.”

    Review: It's You

    It's You It's You by Katy Regnery
    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    BLURB:
    ONCE UPON A TIME...
    the most beautiful boy in the world kissed me.
    I've never been able to forget.
    Perhaps it was his jet-black hair,
    or the changing copper-color of his eyes,
    the intense way he looked at me...
    or the fact that he awakened my passion for the first time,
    at once otherworldly yet heartbreakingly real.

    After that kiss, I never saw him again.

    His name was Jack Beauloup.
    Jack, my "Beautiful Wolf."

    Twenty years passed.
    He has returned.
    For me.


    **********

    Jack Beauloup and Darcy Turner share one, perfect kiss in high school before he vanishes from sleepy Carlisle, NH without a trace.

    Twenty years later, Darcy, who has never forgotten Jack, is shocked when he suddenly appears as a guest at her cousin's wedding. Their attraction to one another is just as searing as it was in high school, but immediately there are a landslide of questions that need answers. Where did he go? Why did he disappear? And what made him return?

    As they find their way back to each other, they will discover that the secrets Jack holds are enough to bind them for life, or rip them apart forever.


    And that about sums it up. No need for me to rehash the plot. Darcy and Jack meet, literally fall in love at first sight, and share a kiss during one summer. That was 20 years ago. Darcy doesn't see him again but can't forget him. She hasn't been able to let him go. Now he's back to claim her, to fulfill all of their desires, and to make their dreams come true.

    I absolutely loved Jack/Jacques. He was divine book boyfriend material. His love and devotion for Darcy seemed unparalleled. He was handsome, sexy, charismatic, smart, caring, sensitive, had a secret, and the list goes on. I FLOVED him!!

    I'm really enjoying this duet. I love when authors step outside the box and Katy Regnery not only did it, but she slayed her attempt! The paranormal romance genre has a new contributor and I for one am excited to see what else she will come up with.

    As for the story of Jack and his Darcy, I'm interested in how their HEA will play out. There are quite a few obstacles in their way, but if I had to guess, Jack will have no problem overcoming them. On to book 2!

    Release Date: January 3, 2017

    Blurb:
    Kayla Sutton has finally submitted.

    And now that Gage has his wife firmly under his control again, he won’t stop until he’s extracted every last independent drop from her being.

    As each day passes, she learns new ways to accept his dominion. After all, she has a lot to atone for. Flirting with disaster with her ex-lover turned brother-in-law might be forgivable, but it’s not so easily forgotten.

    And neither are skeletons. If there’s one thing Kayla has learned it’s that skeletons don’t just come out of the closet; they bust through with the power of a locomotive, mindless of the destruction they cause.

    For the sake of her sanity, Kayla must make a tough decision, even if it means leaving everything behind.
