Breaking with His Past by James Lee Hard

 

 

31836781
After serving five years in jail, Logan is ready to start over and forget all about his past. But things are not that easy, especially when people can’t see past the ex-convict, and getting a job is harder than ever.
Meanwhile, Kyle has finally come to terms with his own sexuality and does the hardest thing he’s ever done in his life: getting a divorce from his wife, Jessica, with whom he has a toddler named Ryan. He leaves both behind in a bid to rebuild his life and to become the father he dreams of being to his son.
It’s in this hurricane of life-changing events that Logan and Kyle end up meeting each other by chance in a small town far away from their previous lives. The spark between them is immediate and strong, but they both try to fight it, coming up with excuses not to pursue it.
While their friendship evolves, they find themselves even more attracted to each other. But will Logan trust he can find love with another man while his past is still so present? And is Kyle ready to invest in his first gay relationship at the same time as he’s fighting for his son’s custody?
Set in a small town with quirky characters and all the peculiarities that only a small town can offer, Logan and Kyle embark on a journey that could change their lives forever. But will they feel free to follow through?
WARNING
This book contains explicit sexual scenes as well as some graphic language. It is intended for a mature, adult audience.

“I don’t know where we’re headed but I know I’m not gonna let you go anywhere…”

I’m not going to go into great detail regarding the plot as the book description gives enough away.
As with previous works by this author,I got quickly into the story,not wanting to put it down until the end-the only issue I have is I would’ve liked a longer Epilogue,as I felt it slightly rushed in some of the detail-but that is because I loved Logan and Kyle’s story that much I didn’t want it to end!

With each book by this author,I feel they are getting stronger in their writing style,developing engaging and thoughtful stories that captivate the reader,making you care about the character’s you are reading about.

Congratulations James Lee Hard on another great story!

Love is a tricky business – especially when left unfinished.

Liberty Rose – world famous television reporter, best-selling novelist and philanthropist returns to the west of Ireland, the place where she grew up, for the wedding of her daughter.

To the outside world it appears she has it all – international career, good looks, wealth, two children and a happy marriage. However, all is not as it seems and her success has come at a price.

Now, the emotional upheaval of her daughter’s wedding throws a harsh spotlight on her own marriage and unavoidable truths must be faced. But matters are complicated by the presence of the only other man she has ever loved. A man she hasn’t seen in twenty-eight years and with whom she still shares a raw chemistry.

He makes it clear he wants to deal with their “unfinished business” but is getting tangled up with her past any good for her future?

Author Interview

When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I was always a storyteller and as I grew up I realised I could marry my ability with the English language to all the stories roaming around my head and get them down on paper. At about ten years of age I was producing little homemade “books” and at fourteen I even “launched” a local magazine! I didn’t think of writing as a viable career until my mid-twenties when I became a journalist but that didn’t provide enough of an outlet for my imagination, so I eventually decided to focus on writing books.

What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

My earliest memory is of reading Robin Hood. I remember the description of him being dressed in “lincoln green” and wondering what sort of green that was! I was most troubled by this. I’d say I was about seven at the time. The book was a present from Santa Claus and it was my first book with no pictures. I can’t tell you how disgusted I was at Santa for bringing me a book with no pictures!

What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

Traditionally I love crime fiction and I always thought that would be what I would write so no-one is more surprised than me that I have written nothing to do with crime fiction! In recent years I have been reading a lot of romance and romantic suspense – which I really enjoy. I also love the classics – anything by Jane Austen, The Bronte sisters, Thomas Hardy etc. I adore beautifully written books so will often have a look at the writers listed for big international literary prizes and check out the books. This is how I came to read Atonement by Ian McEwan, one of my favourite books. I also love reading collections of poetry – Yeats, Kavanagh, Seamus Heaney.

What is your favourite book?

  1. Book? Do I have to pick just one? Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. The Hunger Games trilogy and The Twilight series. Some recent favourites are Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan, Consolation & Conviction by Corinne Michaels and The Love By Numbers series by E.S. Carter.

You know I think we all have a favourite author. Who is your favourite author and why?

I love Ian McEwan for the richness of his prose and imagery. Kaylea Cross for her tight plots, thorough research and great sex scenes. Suzanne Collins for her brutal and unflinching subject matter. Thomas Hardy for his beautiful imagery, George R.R. Martin for his incredible world-building and Stieg Larsson for Lisbeth Salander. Mia Sheridan, Corinne Michaels, Kristen Ashley and E.S. Carter for their wonderful characters, great storylines and depth of character.

If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?

I’d go back to London 1938 and tell, the then British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain just how Adolf Hitler and Nazism were going to pan out and that he needs to abandon appeasement and take action.

When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

Finding the time to write and being able to get into the right headspace is difficult – never the writing itself.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

Oh Yes! I’m a dog nut! I adore my dogs! I’m still grieving over the loss of Miss Billie – a lab collie cross and a huge character – loved by all who met her. She died just before Christmas. I still miss my old girl Zara, an amazing German Shepherd who was in my life for over ten years.

What is your “to die for”, favorite food/foods to eat?

Oh this is easy! Fresh Atlantic lobster plucked from the pristine waters of the west of Ireland, served with lemon or garlic butter. New potatoes freshly dug from my dad’s garden along with his carrots and my mother’s scones and apple pies are unbeatable.

Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Not to be all “famous sport’s brand” about this but just do it! I’d also say don’t waste your precious time with traditional / legacy publishers. Indie publishing is the way to go – if you are a success then the legacy publishers will come looking for you and that’s the way to have them.

The thrilling conclusion to Sage and Ethan’s journey that began in The Seer’s Daughter.

For one hundred years, a demon has been watching, waiting, plotting…
White witch Sage Matthews has inherited a gift that makes her both integral to an ancient prophecy and a target for a demon-possessed serial killer. Assigned to catch the killer, Detective Sergeant Ethan Blade falls wildly, and inconveniently, in love with the one woman he doesn’t know how to protect.
Together Sage and Ethan delve into the prophecy, and the more they learn, the more deadly their situation becomes. At midnight on the night of the blood moon, an ancient doorway will open, and a master demon and his horde will pour through and unleash hell on earth. Only Sage can stop their onslaught—but not if the demon kills her first.
With the blood moon looming, Sage discovers she can join forces with “the alchemist’s son” to destroy the demon. But who is the alchemist’s son? And will he be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice required to end this struggle between light and dark forever?

I was given a copy in exchange for a review.
I enjoyed this book,so much so I went and re-read it before doing this review!

What can I say…without giving away much detail?

This story was well written,great character’s not only in the two leads of Lauren and Mackenzie,but other’s featured were just as important to the flow,and I would love to see more of not only our leads,but them too! (no pressure Tracie!!)..The ‘scenes’ were pretty H.O.T.(the book blurb refers to the nature of what they are) I got into the story quickly,having an idea of who Mackenzie would turn out to be,after the first meeting of both him and Lauren-where to her-he was just a ‘stranger in a bar’ (leading to Hot sex with a ‘stranger’ fantasy-Oh MY!!)

Lauren,30-feels ‘worthless,inadequate,lonely'(due to the fact of her husband Scott’s on going affair in their place of work-resulting in him leaving her 6 months prior to when we begin) after her encounter with her ‘Stranger’-then the discovery of who he actually is…he comes to her with…

‘I have a proposition for you…’

As the story continues,there is much going on (again am not going into it as you would be better to read it!) But what I feel about this is really Lauren has a journey of self discovery-having been with one person for a period of time-being hurt by their actions,moving on from that to a whole other world of experience that Mackenzie introduces her to..

‘For that few hours,she came to life,she became empowered,she wanted something and she took it’
‘I want you to love yourself again,to explore and discover who you really are’

‘Mackenzie Miller should have been a class A drug.He was addictive,as powerful,and as damaging…’
OH INDEED!! Cue yet another Book Boyfriend on an ever-growing list!!!

Congratulations Tracie on creating yet another awesome story-and I hope it is not the last we see of them (again no pressure!! lol)

WARNING: SPICE LEVEL – HOT!

A few minutes later my phone vibrated on the table, and I read a text message that sent shivers down my body. I want you, Claire. I’ll make you beg. I’ll fuck you until you can’t feel your legs. Whisper in your ear to come for me while you dig your nails into my back.

“Oh my God,” I blushed uncontrollably as his hand made its way back onto my legs. “Jake, stop!”

“Do you really want me to?” he whispered, moving steadily upward. “Tell me you really want me to, and I will.”

I should have. I knew that I should have. I should have made Jake stop. We were in the library, for crying out loud. People studied there. And we weren’t alone.

I looked around. I didn’t see any cameras. At the same time, that sneaky hand reached the inside of my thigh. I gasped, closing my eyes.

“I’ll stop. I will.” His hand disappeared up my skirt.

I opened my legs slightly, aching for his touch.

“Hmm,” he whispered, “I think you want me to keep going.”
