The woman I fell in love with is a walking contradiction...

The man I fell in love with is a f*cking liar... 
I don't have much time to reveal all the details, but I will say this: The "Woman disappears after wedding" and "Woman flees before honeymoon" headlines are lying.
I'm not missing.
I didn't run away after my wedding.
I would've never run away right before our scheduled honeymoon.
My husband has taken me.
No, correction: He's kidnapped me because he claims that "it's what's best". That I'm a mere pawn in his twisted game of chess.
Despite the fact that my heart is still tethered to his, or the fact that he's still the most gorgeous and beautiful man I've ever met in my life (he can still make me wet with a single sentence), I have to focus on getting away from him.
I have to accept that he's no longer the man I fell in love with.
He's the king of lies...

Book Review *UNSCREWED* by Ren Alexander

Unscrewed

by Ren Alexander

 

 

 

 

Greg Rodwell.
The myth, the man, the legend.
Yeah. I’m none of that crap.
Okay. I’m a man. There’s that much.
Almost everyone calls me Rod, whether I like it or not. I’m the guy others look to for a laugh, a dirty joke, a distraction—the office clown. Even my best friend, Hadley, laughs.
It’s just that, I’m not always laughing. Not even on the inside. Nobody knows the real Greg or the agony I hide with humor. My recently dead sister had a clue, but she’s in no position to blab. I screwed up big time—then and now—but it’s all my undoing. Through everything, Hadley’s been my cure and my curse. And I fell in love with my married best friend. But she wasn’t always married, and I wasn’t always broken.
I had a millisecond of a chance, but I blew it, siding with morality. What guy does that? And sailing that sinking ship all the way down, I sacrificed my wants for her needs. Doing that, I fathered a kid with the office trouser troll. Stupid? Hell to the yes. Because now, regardless of the grand total, I want something I can’t have. Integrity and my sanity be damned.
But nobody, especially Hadley, can know the real Greg Rodwell, my tortured soul, my unashamed love, or my darkest truth, because it wouldn’t just blow her mind.
It would rock our damn world.
Ren Alexander is the author of seven novels in contemporary romance, including The Wild Sparks Series, The Keys to Jericho, and UNSCREWED. She was born in Wheeling, West Virginia and graduated from West Liberty University, where she received a B.S. in criminal justice. Although interested in that field, her true passion was reading and writing. She currently lives in Detroit, Michigan with her husband, two daughters, and two cats.
Ren’s novel, The Keys to Jericho, was chosen as an “Official Selection” in the Romance category of Apple Literary’s 2017 Annual Book Awards.
Favorite Books
Jane Austen’s “Sense and Sensibility,” S.C. Stephens’ “Thoughtless” series, Patricia Cornwell’s Scarpetta books, Kirsty Moseley books, and the list goes on.
Personal Interests
I love reading, writing, and playing The Sims. They’re all serious addictions. Send help.

REVIEW!

 

 

Finally Greg Rodwell!
Full of wit, charm, empathy, comical quips, loyalty, and unquenchable love.  He is truly unforgettable,
his colorful vocabulary, his humorous fashion expertise, his downright outrageous and amusing
behavior abounds.  Rod continuously has me in hysterical fits with his Hello Kitty Kite-flying abilities
to his Strom Trooper Ties, and his Sponge-Bob Coffee Cups.  I just can’t, I can not.

 

 

 


I am just destroyed by this mans secrets and excessive need to be loved.  Trust me you do not know Rod
at all, until you read his story.  Then perhaps you will have to re-read his story to know just how many
demons ride his soul.  They are extensive and they are corroding his psyche which eventually wear poor
Rod down until they affect his trust in just about everyone he holds dear.

 

 

Through all his strengths, his bad decisions somehow get the best of this man.
Still he tackles them all, and tries to be a good buddy, best friend, co-worker, paralegal,
and maybe a father, maybe a lover? 
There are still plenty of questions to be revealed and tons of mystery to wade through,
and I guess that’s why this author has stated this is just Book One is this incredible
journey of Greg Rodwell.

I cannot wait to get to it, bring it on Ren Alexander, you madam are a genius storyteller for I can practically smell Rod’s Chrome spray all up in my nostrils!

~Book Review~ In The Unlikely Event – L.J. SHEN

 

In The Unlikely Event

 

by L.J. SHEN

 

 

L.J. Shen comes a new, star-crossed lovers romance about loss, love, and meeting The One when you are too young to know how to keep them.
Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.
A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.
An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.
We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.
Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.
In New York.
And he’s America’s music obsession.
The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.
The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.
Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.
But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.
I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.
I have a career I love.
A boyfriend I adore.
An apartment, a roommate, a life.
I changed. He changed, too.
But Mal kept the napkin.
Question is, will I keep my word?

L.J. Shen is USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author of contemporary romance books. She lives in California with her husband, son and lazy cat.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading a good book with a glass of wine and catching up on her favorite HBO and Netflix shows.
Yeah, she’s a badass like that.
stalker links!
Alright so right from the start I could tell this work here was completely different from anything LJ Shen has produced as of yet. A very refreshing new take, a unique blend of angst, and really an emotional yet addictive story from start to the end. 
Malachy Doherty is charming, sweet, humorous, fun, charismatic, definitely swoon-worthy.  He is exactly what Aurora a.k.a. Rory needs at this time in her life as she struggles with daddy issues and going through grief.
Rory is young, sweet, feisty, and fun, when these to meet it’s an instant bond and enough chemistry to burn your eyes out of their sockets.
When the young lovers meet, Mal is a musician solo-ing it up on the streets and Rory is an up-and-coming photographer who takes her camera everywhere.  It all begins with a promise-contract to wed in the unlikely event they meet in the future, it is wrote on a bar napkin that Mal keeps for years in his back pocket.
 
Fast forward into their future and you find the hero and heroine grew jaded, flawed, broken, jagged, and trying to fit their missing pieces together again.  You know this is life in general, there are tons of accusations, assumptions, ups and downs, twists and turns, lies and deceit, we all make mistakes.  But its time to solve all these riddles and they do in the most humorous of ways.  Their story is quirky, cute, loving, heartbreaking and truthful to a fault.  All their broken pieces seems to fit naturally back together.  I cannot really say anything further without spoiling this epic love story except that no chocolate bars were harmed in the devouring of this novel.

~Leave Me Breathless~ BOOK REVIEW!

LEAVE ME BREATHLESS

BY Jodi Ellen Malpas

 

 

Ryan Willis has spent years in the protection business, a job that requires constant vigilance and quick thinking. His only chance to truly relax is at his secluded cabin in a small town where there are never any surprises. So when Ryan returns after an assignment and encounters a beautiful stranger, he isn’t only surprised, he’s also instantly intrigued.

Hannah Bright is a breath of fresh air, and Ryan is soon completely consumed, unable to stop from falling for her. As the two grow closer, his instinct tells him something is amiss. Yet nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he starts digging into her past.

Hannah spends her days painting, running her arts and crafts store…and hiding too many secrets. It’s why she won’t let the ruggedly handsome bodyguard get too close. But their chemistry is undeniable, and Hannah quickly finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance with Ryan. He is peace personified, a balm to her battered soul. Yet the gorgeous, captivating man who has swept Hannah off her feet doesn’t even know who she really is. And the moment he finds out, both their lives are at risk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biography
Jodi Ellen Malpas was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys. Working for her father’s construction business full time, she tried to ignore the lingering idea of writing until it became impossible. She wrote in secret for a long time before finally finding the courage to unleash her creative streak, and in October 2012 she released This Man. She took a chance on a story with some intense characters and sparked incredible reactions from women all over the world. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters have become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.

book review

 

First do not try to compare with This Man or One Night Series.  This is sorta a spin off from The Protector in which you will meet the hero from one to another, “Jack and Ryan”, and yeah, yuumm!  Protective Alpha Heros in Security ok, so yeah… yumm.

 

 

Now Ryan and Hannah meet in a freak unexpected way and there’s an instant insane chemistry and not just physically, they are both intelligent and do love the same things, art, outdoors, family and food.  Ryan is extremly protective and not in the alpha male way, its in his blood and career.

 

  Hannah has an old-fashioned innocence to her and is very artistic don’t get me wrong though, you could never push this woman around, she does have her own voice.  She comes off a bit shy at first, reserved and maybe even skittish.  There’s a bit of mystery surrounding her, she’s hiding secrets, hiding her background, she needs TRUST.

 

 

As the two draw closer, their spark is ever present and Ryan has a quiet intensity about him that pairs well with Hannah’s unique grit and insatiable need to please.  I love how the author wrote about a small town and the characters within, Ryan’s cabin was unique, his daughter Alex was delighful and maybe even the star in this gem.  You almost feel like your swimming in his lake or even flying high on Alex’s swing, it’s very endearing to all of your senses.

 

 

 

It’s a bit slow-paced but then builds into a crescendo in the end as secrets are revealed and monsters come out of hiding, the attacks are fierce and eventually the end is exactly what JEM always promises us.  Sink you soul into this lovely find book lovers, you will not be disappointed. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~Book Review~ *CREDENCE* by Penelope Douglas

CREDENCE

by Penelope Douglas

Three of them, one of her, and a remote cabin in the woods. Let the hot, winter nights ensue…

Tiernan de Haas doesn’t care about anything anymore. The only child of a film producer and his starlet wife, she’s grown up with wealth and privilege but not love or guidance. Shipped off to boarding schools from an early age, it was still impossible to escape the loneliness and carve out a life of her own. The shadow of her parents’ fame followed her everywhere.

And when they suddenly pass away, she knows she should be devastated. But has anything really changed? She’s always been alone, hasn’t she?

Jake Van der Berg, her father’s stepbrother and her only living relative, assumes guardianship of Tiernan who is still two months shy of eighteen. Sent to live with him and his two sons, Noah and Kaleb, in the mountains of Colorado, Tiernan soon learns that these men now have a say in what she chooses to care and not care about anymore.

As the three of them take her under their wing, teach her to work and survive in the remote woods far away from the rest of the world, she slowly finds her place among them.

And as a part of them.

She also realizes that lines blur and rules become easy to break when no one else is watching.

One of them has her.

The other one wants her.

But he…

He’s going to keep her.

Penelope Douglas is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Her books have been translated into fourteen languages and include The Fall Away Series, The Devil’s Night Series, and the stand-alones, Misconduct, Punk 57, and Birthday Girl.

Influences:

Apocalyptica, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, Black Veil Brides, Nonpoint…to name a few
She lives in Las Vegas with her husband and their daughter.

 

 

 

 

 

Tiernan de Haas is a strong female heroine, don't get me wrong, however she has been totally alone, secluded and immature especially to be making decisions about relations relating to her education, mental health and body.  Following the deaths of both parents together, sorta like a suicide pact, she receives word to live with her father’s stepbrother and only living relative Jake Van der Berg and his two sons, Kaleb and Noah. 





In the secluded mountains of Colorado away from any towns, people or civilization, Tiernan soon finds out what home, hope, feelings and love are all about.  But lines and boundaries are being cris-crossed and blurred for the heroine was raised in a wealthy household lacking in parental dicipline, guidance and loving support.  



 

Now Penelope Douglas is a master story teller because you feel being up in these snow capped mountains, when she writes she pulls you right into the setting she sets.  You feel like you are right in front of the fireplace, you can see yourself feeding the animals, you can see yourself hunting, fishing and swimming in and around this homesteads rivers and lakes.  Now that is a true artist.  







It's not all love and games soon Tiernan will have to do battle with her feelings of home, health, love, education and life.  Don't miss out on this erotic, forbidden, even taboo tale of hope, loss, love and life.

~Book Review~ THE WIVES -Author Tarryn Fisher

THE WIVES

by Author Tarryn Fisher

Thursday’s husband, Seth, has two other wives. She’s never met them, and she doesn’t know anything about them. She agreed to this unusual arrangement because she’s so crazy about him.

But one day, she finds something. Something that tells a very different—and horrifying—story about the man she married.

What follows is one of the most twisted, shocking thrillers you’ll ever read.

Tarryn Fisher is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of ten novels. Born a sun hater, she currently makes her home in Seattle, Washington with her children, husband, and psychotic husky. Tarryn writes about villains.

Website

I would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K. Rowling could do that. Instead, I try to write stories that pull on people’s emotions. I believe that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force. I love villains. Three of my favorites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity (like me). I like to make these personality types the center of my stories.
I love rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm. I hate bad adjectives and the word “smolder”. If you read my book-I love you. If you hate my book-I still love you, but please don’t be mean to me; I’m half badass, half cry baby.

My Gawd! I’m still a sweating, quivering mess, lol.
Ok dang, the mental state is always a super scary thing for me. More so than health or spirituality, mental illness is no joke.

Having someone so stealthy, sneaky and manipulative is super sleazy and downright spooky as well.  Living, breathing, sleeping, and eating with someone that has ulterior motives can absolutely drive a sane mind batty.  It messes with your psyche and drives deeply into every pore, every nerve is in a super sonic pulse, you are never calm and never stable.  You cannot tell if this is a lie or if that is a truth.  This book delves into all these troublesome thoughts and feelings, stabbing at your mind like a .. well a mind f*ck.

 

There were some heavy duty twisty, turny things going on in this wonderful piece that still keeps me up at night, what an emotional roller coaster, I highly recommend this jem to anyone for a fantastic getaway from life in general.

And the ending?!  Holy sh*t didn’t see that coming!
