Synopsis Logo

After being rejected by his childhood best friend, Todd Dixon turns his back on love and all its false promises. Three years later, he’s living in a new city, making a name for himself with his bar, record label, and one night stands.

Lily Spring knows nothing but the music that flows through her veins, but after one night of betrayal that ended in tragedy, her entire life falls from under her right along with her musical dreams. Now, she finds herself living in a new state with a sister she barely knows and a dream that she MUST fulfill.

He’s everything she doesn’t need.

Stubborn as hell, sexy as sin, with a reputation as wicked as his body. To make things worse, he’s her new boss and the ticket to what she’s always wanted.

When two fates collide and passions burn high, will the fire die or will it simmer into a slow burn becoming much more than either of them thought possible

This isn’t just a love story.

This is a story of hope, repentance and second chances.

Are you ready?

Blurb:

Freya Nissan grew up knowing that she was different. A free spirit, an outsider, a maverick who sees beyond the confines of her human world. She’s the soulful, idle daydreamer of her sleepy English village, who no one believes will ever amount to much…until the day she does.

Her visionary beliefs spark in her a passion to bring to life the dreams she has at night — dreams of journeying to other realms (entire worlds that exist alongside of and even intertwine with the Earth we live on now). And as this story embarks, Freya disappears from her village in search of a discovery that will change her forever.

Christian Delaney died a long time ago. From that day to this he has been waiting for a love that seems determined to elude him…until the day Freya appears.

The inter-dimensional love story that unfolds between them proves to be as unique as it is troublesome, for not all are enchanted by Freya’s capabilities and for daring to be different she andChristian might just pay the ultimate price.

This series debut from bestselling author Annabel Fanning delivers a thrilling and compelling tale of adventure, love, and believing in your dreams.

Excerpt:

“So, where am I?” I ask nervously, walking forward and hoping that this awkward feeling will disappear very soon.

But before I can get an answer, I stumble over my own feet and fall forwards. He catches me in his arms without moving backwards. My hands are splayed on his chest. I remove my left one immediately, but the right one stays where it is. Over his heart.

We stare at each other. There’s a moment’s silence, which feels like hours. Then understanding comes pouring into me.

Oh my God.

I look into his eyes, my own now flooded with a mixture of panic and accusation. He stares sadly back — obviously I’ve reacted the way he feared I would.

I feel nothing under my hand. There is no heartbeat.

“Am I dead?” I whisper.

Images flash through my mind…my parents, Felix, my home…can this place really be where I am safest?

He looks down, then back into my eyes. The back of his hand brushes softly over my bruised cheek, but I pull it away. This is no time for him to be seducing me.

“Am I dead?” I ask again, a little more firmly.

He gently takes my hand off of his chest and places it over my own heart. I feel its quickened pace and sigh in relief.

“No, Freya, you’re not dead,” he says, seriously. “But I am.”

Scattered Ashes

 Scattered Ashes (Ashes to Ashes Book 1)

I didn’t know what to expect going into this book. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a paranormal romance but what a pleasant surprise this book was.

We escape into a world full or Phoenixes, Wraiths and Seers, there we find Aurelia and Rhys who are bound together beyond their control. Aurelia hates Rhys, or does she? She has every reason too, but not everything is what it seems. There are two sides to every story after all.

Aurelia and Rhys must now stand together to fight an enemy that threatens to destroy them both. As they uncover the true depravity of their enemy and her reach,they also uncover their true feelings for each other.

There is a lot of detail in this book and I am in awe of Annies imagination and her ability to convey the images she creates. Many of the elements were new to me but she is able to explain them in a way that is understandable to new readers of this genre.

I really enjoyed the contemporary feel to this novel too and the strong female lead. She is very likable and doesn’t take any shit.

“When I said ready the safe house, I did not mean call every warrior and their brother to come guard us. I meant turn the lights and the hot tub on and get some booze. What the shit is going on?”

In fact, there are elements of humour throughout that bring light relief.
“There is nothing wrong with you,” Rhys tells Aurelia. “You are strong and beautiful, and I’m fucking lucky to have you. I just need to buy stock in fire extinguishers. No big,”

All in all this is a thoroughly enjoyable read and I look forward to the next installment now that I have been introduced into her world.

Obscured by Tara Sue Me writing as Cat Waters (4*)

Obscured was given to Emma through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Releasing October 12th 2015, pre-order link below.

There’s the truth you know….

At age 16, Athena Hamilton traded her body for survival when a powerful Vegas hotelier and pimp lured her into his world. Ten years of turning tricks has taught her to trust no one and feel nothing. Yet a chance meeting with a childhood crush sparks hope for something more.

The truth you believe…

There’s no way Isaiah Martin could want her. He’s a pastor. Too good. Too pure. But when she learns her days are numbered, she runs into the safety of his arms and trusts his promise of protection.

And the truth you never imagined…

The aftermath of a tragic accident and a bitter betrayal leaves her destitute and alone. The one man she shouldn’t trust offers her a chance to escape. But when good and evil collide, what do you do when the truth is Obscured?cover74815-medium

Obscured

I went into Obscured blind; I skimmed over the synopsis, the cover and Tara Sue Me was what drew me in.

Throughout the book there were twists and turns I never expected, it kept me wondering what would happen each time I turned the page. It was fast paced and quite enjoyable.

Athena Hamilton became a prostitute at 16 years old, after meeting Mike Randolph. After meeting an old friend 10 years later something within Athena breaks as she decides to run. This is when she find out the truth, truly is, obscured.

I found Athena to be a little bit flaky at times, but who can blame her when you read what she’s gone/going through. Her decisions at times had me shaking my head, thinking ‘you silly girl’.

Isaiah Martin, her old friend, tells her he is a pastor. When Athena makes the decision to leave, her path leads her to Isaiah once more. To begin with he was likable, a southern boy, all grown up, Athena can’t see he’s almost too good to be true.

There was a twist in the story, a good one in which Athena seemed to be on the way to getting her happy ever after.

Saying anymore would be a spoiler, so I’ll leave it there. Obscured was generally really good, 1* off for the flakiness of Athena and the fact it’s looking like a series but there was no mention of it.
