Meet Luke Crawley in Blake Austin’s debut novel of loss, redemption, and ever-enduring love releasing on February 24th 2016

Luke Cawley is a broken man. After his wife’s tragic death, he lost everything that mattered in the world. Now, his life is filled with hard days, harder nights, and a steady stream of alcohol and the wrong kind of women. Nothing helps.

Until the letters arrive on Luke’s doorstep.

Nine envelopes. Nine messages. Nine chances to find his way back.

Rae Goode is looking for the real thing. After fighting her way out of a string of bad relationships, she’s ready for something different–something true.

She meets Luke while piecing her life together, and right away she can tell that he’s different. Drawn together by fate and the desire to heal, Rae and Luke discover new ways to mend their broken hearts–one letter at a time.

Excerpt

As soon as the word left my mouth, Rae’s face opened up and she was smiling over at me and it was like I was falling in towards her. When she was happy, I got vertigo. All those happy brain chemicals just took over and I was lost in bliss.

“Get out of my rescue, Luke Cawley,” she said.

“Will do,” I replied, scooping up King’s leash and opening the door again. But before we stepped out, Rae’s voice came after me.

“Hey Luke, you want to hook up sometime?” she asked. I turned around, probably looked startled. Sometimes I’m smooth, sometimes I’m not. “I mean, I could help you with King. At the dog park or something. You get a dog tired enough, he won’t rip up the house.”

She smiled. Clearly this was a professional courtesy she was extending, right? But I still couldn’t help feeling like it might do me and King both some good to see Rae again.

“I uh, lost your number,” I said. Sounded a lot nicer than ‘I threw it away while I was cleaning my house.’ I took out my phone. “I’ll just put it into my phone this time. Rae, right? What’s your last name?” I made a new contact.

“Goode,” she said.

I’d remember that. I didn’t have the best memory, but I remember what’s important. I decided I couldn’t let it be a sign, though. It was just a last name. Totally wasn’t a sign. I’m too grown up to believe in things like that.

                I tapped in her number, texted her so she had mine, then I reached down, pet King on the head once more, and left the shelter with my dog in tow, feeling pretty good after all was said and done.image02.jpg

Soulless: Lawless Part 2, King Series Book 4 by T. M. Frazier (5*)

28020254.jpg

Release Date: 23 February 2016

The finale to Bear and Thia’s epic love story

It is necessary to first read Lawless to fully enjoy Soulless.

*I kindly received an Arc in exchange for an honest review*

Frazier does it again in the epic finale to Bear and Thia’s story. The woman left us with a hell of a cliffhanger in Lawless (Book One) and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in and find out what she had in store for the star-crossed lovers this time around.

I don’t want to give too much of the story away because there are so many twists and turns along the way that should be experienced first hand. Just know that Chop is more evil and sadistic than you could ever imagine, King and Ray as loyal as you could hope for and Bear and Ti’s love for each other stronger than ever before.

‘Bear was as beautiful as he was hard. He was as complex as he was simple. He was both the storm and the calm. The fear and the solace. The rage and the peace. My life and my love.’

“Maybe I felt like keeping you out from behind bars and in my sight where I could protect you was a little more f**king important than my raging undying motherf**king overwhelming need to be with you.”

You will both ugly cry and laugh out loud. Your heart will melt along with your underwear and you will be left with the best kind of book hangover because the ending is just… gah!!!!
There is also an introduction of a new character who I absolutely loved and I really hope that all those hints in there were the beginning of another spin off series.

1-click people, you won’t regret it.
Have to go now.
I need to do another happy dance around the living room one more time 🙂

The Other Man by D Breeze

dbreeze

The Other Man- D Breeze

I was intrigued by the blurb of this book as soon as I read it; I knew I needed to have it in my life. Little did I know it would flip my little world inside out.  I read this book in the space of less than 24hrs.

Sex is not ‘routine’ any more.

There are sex shops decorating the high-street, free porn all over the internet and lets not even get started on the new BDSM phenomenon. So when things get a little ‘stale’ in the bedroom, what would you do?

Carly made a suggestion; a suggestion I wanted nothing to do with at first, but she was my wife and I’d have done anything to make her happy. I went along with her plan, even though I really didn’t want to. It actually worked, for a while. Until something changed.

Then I wasn’t doing it for her anymore.

Instead, it was all about secret liaisons, stolen moments and the thrill of getting caught. My life changed overnight and there was nothing I could do to prevent it. Lust is an unstoppable emotion when it takes hold.

Rules are broken.

Mistakes are made.

Lives are destroyed. Be careful what you wish for, because sometimes, that wish can come true. Blake Thomas was her wish…

Until he became mine.

I have only read one ménage book and that was Travis by Nicole Edwards. I wasn’t sure what to expect but this book blew my freaking mind, I needed an ice bucket for pretty much every sex scene, my heart thumped, I sympathised with Blake so much when Zach came along.

I’m not going to go into too much detail as it would give a lot away. D Breeze has just become a staple in my author list. She’s set the bar very high for future books ire ad in this genre. I may also have gone on a one click spree of other m/m books.

Seeing Blake struggle with what was going on in his life, really hit home with me. Soulmates is something I believe and I believe I am lucky enough to have found mine. But to think that maybe I wasn’t his soulmate, How would I feel? Would I ever be able to move on? To be there along with Blake thinking he has found his soulmate in Carlie then BOOM Zach comes along. Blake doesn’t know what’s hit him and he struggles to deal with all his conflicting emotions. You can’t help but to go along on this emotional journey with him. There are ups and downs and even a few curveballs thrown in for good measure.

I think what I loved the most was, This could happen to anyone, there wasn’t a fantasy thrown in here, your neighbour, your teacher, Boss, this could happen and I loved the reality of that. It wasn’t always pretty. Everything screamed real life to me.

 

I finished this book two weeks ago and I’m still hungover from it, still fresh in my mind. that to me is a sign of a fucking fantastic book!

 

This does end in a cliff hanger but, god, it’s a good one, but don’t despair Book two, The Only Man is out 15th March (THANK THE WRITING GOD’S!!!)

Well…erm, I don’t know where to start, I loved this story.

Lydia is the town Crazy, but in reality she isn’t, its ignorant people, bad situation and typical small town mindedness. I related to Lydia so much. We are all in our own way crazy aren’t we?

Annie did a freaking amazing job on this story, I finished it a fair few days ago and I’m still finding myself thinking about Lydia and Callum.

You know I don’t like to go into great detail about books and ruin the enjoyment of a first read. What I will say about this book is that it is a must read. Captivating and gripping, there are a few twists too, Lydia is a force, You never quite know what she is going to do next, Unless it’s the mug

Callum is Kitty’s cousin (Kitty is Lydia bestie) He already has pre conceived notions from childhood about Lydia. Over time he comes to realise all is not as it seems. So interesting to read, its duel POV  so we get to hear from Callum too.

Kitty and Joe are supporting characters that play a huge part in the book too, you grow to love them too, more so when some secrets are revealed. SEE you need to read this book! Talking about it is making me want to re-read already.

This review does the book no justice, the words just don’t seem to be enough.

Lydia Baker is returning home, despite being less than welcome and less than excited about it. The last time she was in the nosy little town of Park Bay, she was being shipped off to the looney-farm by her own father. Her best friend, Kate, is the only reason she’s going back, and Lydia is determined more than ever to fix herself and stop relying so completely on her friend. Which would be
easier if Kate’s judgmental cousin wasn’t in town too and if he didn’t make her drool so damn much.

Callum Reeves hasn’t seen his cousin, Kate, in eight years. Returning home was meant to be the easy comfort that he needed after losing his high flying job in LA, and consequently, his high flying girlfriend. A new job, his hometown, and finally
surrounded by what he knows. It would be perfect if it wasn’t for Kate’s nutjob best friend always being around. Her mood changes as often as her hair colour – which is a lot- and all Callum wants to do is strangle her. That is when he’s not
thinking about how good she’d look in his bed.

He hates her. She isn’t too fond of him either. He’s a straight-laced townie she can’t understand, and she’s crazy and broken in ways he can’t imagine. Their curiosity for one and other has them discovering things they never knew about themselves as well as each other.

With the entire town watching every move that’s made, Lydia’s ever growing insanity, and Callum’s job with the enemy, what’s the worst that could happen?

This is a new author to me. I enjoyed the book, struggled to get in to it at the start but I was soon hooked.

As the president of the Sin City Outlaw Motorcycle Club, I fuck as hard as I ride and rarely go to bed alone.

The women are fast and the violence is intense.

I excel in both.

People either respect me or fear me. I’m not arrogant. It’s just the truth.

I was a king, reigning over Vegas without complication, until one gorgeous sheriff made everything fall apart.

When I saw her, I became a Neanderthal, wanting nothing more than to be between those legs.

I guess that’s where I went wrong, because my reality was shot to hell real fucking fast.

One kiss caused her to step over that blue line.

One night in her bed made me a traitor.

And now… we’re both screwed.

 

I love this type of forbidden love; it was exciting, terrifying and downright dirty.

The kind of love Zeek and Jillian have is intense.  He’s a scary Mofo and she is the goody two shoed Sherriff who doesn’t know when to back down until he backs her on the bed or the road or anywhere he can that is 😉

But we all know outlaws and the law don’t mix, what happens when they do? It can never end well surely.

Can a killer and a cop live happily ever after? I NEED TO KNOW!

Cock-A-Saurus Rex, intrigued? I was killing myself laughing at this bit.

This is face paced, cruel, sexy as hell, baffling and downright dangerous book to read.

I’m very much looking forward to book two in the series.

It does end on a slight cliff-hanger that will leave you with your jaw on the floor begging for more, just be careful your pants don’t drop with your jaw 😉

EXCERPT- These are Celine’s most private things. No one was ever supposed to find them.
With slightly shaky hands, I shift my focus to the bottom of the closet, where shoe boxes and storage containers are stacked in tidy piles. I toss them about, rooting through the contents, anxious over what I might find.
Until I come to a decorative box of dangly necklaces and bracelets, made from giant stones. An uneducated person might mistake them for costume jewelry, but I know that the diamonds are real. I can tell by their sparkle. Several receipts sit at the bottom of the box, indicating a pawnshop where it looks like Celine had already sold some pieces.
I crawl on my hands and knees to check under the bed. Nothing but a single dust bunny—the soul survivor of Celine’s excessive cleaning regime—hides there.
I toss the lamp onto the recently delivered and freshly made bed—the silk white shade bends but I don’t care—and pull apart the makeshift end table, yanking the long and narrow crates apart to hit the hardwood in a loud clatter.
Books spill out everywhere.
The crates are full of little books, ranging from pink journals with unicorns to leather-bound diaries with locks. No keys included.
I didn’t know Celine kept a diary. But of course she did. She liked keeping track of everything. It only makes sense that she would keep track of her life.
I gather every last one and spread them out across the bed. Hoping that somewhere in here I’ll find a reasonable answer…
Dreading the truth.

About HE WILL BE MY RUIN:

The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her suspense debut with this sexy, heartpounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend’s death, a story pulsing with the “intense, hot, emotional” (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.

A woman who almost had it all . . .

On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation . . .

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.
