Hard. Painful.
Tragic.
This is what my life
has become – purgatory. Floating in the middle of what could’ve been and what’s
never going to happen.
My past dictates my
future. Every step forward, guarantees ten steps back. Regret entwined with an
addiction to bad decisions, living in the moment and neglecting the
consequences has become a way of life.
Ignoring all the
warning signs, I didn’t see him coming. He was supposed to be a distraction, a
bit of fun amidst all my chaos. But Elliot Ramzy turned out to be all that, and
so much more.
*Deviate is a spin
off novel and can be read as a complete standalone. The characters in this book
are originally featured in Devastate*

Melanie Smith has spent her entire life waiting for her happy ever after. For a moment there, everything is hunky-dory until her boyfriend falls in love with another man. Trying to move on, she makes every effort to find “the one.”
Watching everyone around her find love, leaving her knee-deep in spinster status, Melanie decides on a new path: become a surrogate for her ex-turned-best friend. She doesn’t bargain on a two-for-one deal: a baby for bestie… and a new man.
Join Melanie on her journey as she navigates the highs and lows, the cravings and confusion of love and trying to find meaning in those three empty words.

 

“Melanie.” My name came out like a seduction, teasing me. I clenched my legs together, the pad that I was sitting on crinkling in response. The man was pure sex and everything he did or said jump-started my body. “Tell me about having this baby.” He glanced down at my chart. “It says here that you are going to be a surrogate.”
“I… um….” I looked away, my eyes finding a spot on the floor to focus on. I didn’t know what to say. Did he need to know the details? My hesitation must have shown, because he cleared his throat.
“If you’d prefer, I can transfer you to a female doctor. I know sometimes these things can be difficult to talk about. Dr. Phillips might be available.”
“No!” My voice was about three octaves too high. Okay, I sounded eager. Way overeager. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to freak out. It’s just hard to talk about.” I shifted on the table, the crinkling returning. “Dr….” I squinted, trying to remember his name. He never did introduce himself.
“Please call me Ashe.”
“Ashe,” I said with a smile. “Well, short version is my ex-boyfriend, now best friend, fell in love with a man, got married, and they’re having trouble adopting. They want to have a baby so they asked me, and here I am.” I pulled on the gown. Ashe cocked his head to the side, studying me curiously. Yup, he thinks I’m certifiable.
“Okay,” he said, looking away, but not before I caught his lips curve into a smile. Lips that look like they need a big fat kiss from yours truly.
“You’re a good friend to do all this.” He smiled as he went to the door and pressed a button. A moment later the same female nurse from earlier came in and went over to the counter and put gloves on. They snapped on her wrists, causing me to jump.

I had no choice but to call my father, Demon, president of the Blue Devils MC, when I realized someone was following me. I had walked away from him and his outlaw lifestyle five years ago along with the man who had wrecked my heart. When I looked up to see my protector on his motorcycle I wasn’t expecting it to be Wrecker. He was the last man I ever wanted to lay eyes on again. I had warned him if I ever saw him again I would shoot off his d*ck and I meant it.
Wrecker
The run was supposed to be a simple one. Pick up the girl and take her to the hideout until it was safe to return her home. There was one problem, she was my ex, the daughter of my club president. She hated me for what I did to her, but I still loved her and I intended on making her mine again. No matter what it costs me.

Joshua Dawson is my best friend’s ex-boyfriend. That alone
should be reason enough for me to keep my distance. Add in that he’s a well
mannered, loyal and hardworking artist and I should be running in the other
direction.
He’s damn near perfect, and I prefer my men hard to love and
easy to leave. Josh’s only flaw is he wants forever, and for the first time I
might want the same. But loving someone doesn’t mean you deserve them.
He’s all I want and everything I can’t have.

RHR RATING 5*/5
Firstly,what a beautiful cover design for this story!

Canvas can easily be read as a Standalone,and for those of us who have read the previous books where Josh and Elle feature,it is one that we knew was coming, were all excited to see where their story would go.
From the Prologue,to the Epilogue,we are given so much more than just a friends to lovers tale~told in DUAL POV’s ~yes the HOT scenes between Josh and Elle are that -the obvious attraction between both comes across,and with how she reacts to him,at times,I must admit,did annoy me (tho as the story unfolds,reasons for why are revealed) It was great to see Kyle/Janny Derek/Kenna (who we’ve seen before) giving a slight insight to what was going on with them.
Josh with his art and his desire to be a Tattooist/owning his own studio,also brought in a series of new characters,and his family~Dad and Older brother with an MC /younger brother who,like him,is not in that life~All of whom could be potential story-lines for future works?? (no pressure Jacob!)
As I’ve said~it is more than just the friends to lovers, there was a lot going on in the story,and I haven’t gone into detail because,it would be better to read it for yourselves!

Meet Author Ker Dukey

 

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so I thought it best that I tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made of light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.
