Michelle Hathaway has it all: a view of the Eiffel Tower from her loft in Paris, a successful career as a fashion photographer, ownership in an up-and-coming art gallery, and jet-setting days filled with excitement. But, even with all that luxury, her life feels aimless.

Over the years, Michelle drifted on the tide of a long distance, on-again off-again relationship with Micah Roberts, a hot bass player in a popular rock band. When he finally asks her to move to Los Angeles to be with him, she risks everything, taking the leap into a new life.

Drowning in the wake of her decisions, she struggles just to breathe as destiny threatens to take everything. As unexpected events devastate her, will Michelle surface from the depths of despair?

Penumbra Book Summary

In one night, I lost everything: my hopes and dreams, my best friend, and Shadow’s heart. He told me he loved me, but it was just a lie.

The Midnight Society has fallen, reduced to ashes by a monster–a person whom we all once trusted. The betrayal has shattered our lives forever and Shadow, Lord of the Midnight Society, finds himself at a crossroad.

One road leads him further down the path of vengeance, filled with unending violence and dead bodies. The other road leads to me. However, our path to happiness is paved with broken glass and razorblades, and at some point, one of us is going to fall.

Welcome to the world of the Midnight Society.

Logan discovered both love and heartbreak at the tender age of seven, when the pretty little blue-eyed girl next door stole his Kit-Kat bar and shared it with the bad boy from across the street. Devastated, Logan found solace by escaping into imaginary worlds he forged with words, creating kingdoms where the chivalrous knight always got the princess.

Twenty three years later Logan spends his days in a suit and tie, working for the government on matters of network security. However his thoughts never strayed too far from the incendiary nature of love — the passionate fire that’s both scintillating and dangerous. Obsessed with exploring the steamy and mysterious side of human nature, Logan continues to create worlds filled with thrills, mystery, and of course, sex.

5 – Roses – Unique Story Telling / Creative Writing

5 – Hearts – Soul Mates – Lovers

Aria is struggling to heal her battered and bruised heart after a whirlwind of a romance suddenly comes to a screeching, soul wrenching immediate halt.  This leading lady holds her own though and never loses her commitment to protect those she is devoted to.  Her friends… her family… she remains ever loyal.  Her strength to overcome her raging desires will be tested as the remaining Midnight Society members band together to find their enemy.

“All that bullshit about wanting to leave The Midnight Society, taking me away and traveling, making love in exotic locations, was all a string of words meant to keep me around so I could be your fuck-buddy, am I right?”  ~Aria

Piano-Legs

Shadow Tremaine is still as reserved, mysterious and secretive as ever, revenge is the only thing on his mind and he will conquer his need to bring justice to those that have suffered from the hands of his enemy.  This hero will never stop the raging need to avenge his friends and family and destroy the enemy seeking out his loved ones and burning a hole in his psyche, even if it means losing the only woman he has ever loved.

“My mind has been preoccupied, if you haven’t noticed.  I’m sorry if holding your hand, whispering sweet nothings in you ear, and taking you away on an extended vacation is not at the top of my list at the moment.”  ~Shadow

5 – Lips – Erotic Delight

Yes this author knows how to write spicy scenes that not only will have your panties dropping but they will burst into flames.  This couple’s hunger for each other had me sweating and wishing for my own partner to quench my thirst.  Shadow is the type that keeps emotions inside yet his burning desire for Aria makes the animal in him emerge forceful and passionate until she submits to paradise. 

Shadow was kissing me with a sense of urgency, his mouth was the coolness that could vanquish the raging fires within me.

His thrusts were slow at first, but quickened in pace as he placed his hands on my knees and pushed my legs apart, forcing my inner-muscles to clench tightly around his cock.

Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.

 
My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.
 
And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.
 
Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.
 
Being with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay. There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.

2 Roses – Romance

Honestly this book is not one for the romance shelf, instead it’s a warming tale that consisted of building friendships and coming to terms with one’s decisions in life.

Kendal made a haunting decision 4 years ago that will eventually impact not only her life but the lives of her son and her baby daddy’s to.  The consequences of this decision later leaves her feeling guilty and unable to move forward.   She still loves him, her first.. her only true love.

Jax is left devastated at Kendal’s decision to end their passionate love affair of nearly 2 years and the closure that he needs to move on never came to pass.  Although he made it big and is riding high on his Rock Star status he is left unfulfilled and empty inside.  He misses her, his one and only love, the one that got away.

374a03f20b1f085b0768843e518b29af[1]

3 – Hearts for Friends

Friendships are depicted in detail and their loyalty to each other is very touching.  Kendal’s friends literally have her back as they travel with her through her journey of grief and pain.  It’s very refreshing to find her ‘boyfriends’ portrayed more as her ‘brothers’ instead of lusting after her,  they continue to protect her and I admire that old school charm the author gives them.

5bebe77ba5120f3ff6165075f81ff7d7[1]

Finley was very sweet in this story and I can’t wait to read more about him.  His innocence is enough to tug at my heartstrings and I cannot wait to see if and when he meets his Rock-Star Daddy.  I have mixed emotions about how Kendal handled this defining moment in her life, although I see her point in the decision, I also see how this affects Jax’s life.  She later sees the error of her ways now that Finley is growing up without his father in his young life.

Will Kendal and Jax find their HEA?  Will they ever come together as a family?  I can’t wait to find out in Rockstar’s Girl! 

Thanks K.T. Fisher

Jacqs is a twenty-eight year old woman caught up in an on again, off again relationship with Bond, who is her best friend and the one who causes her the most heartache. She succumbs, yet again, to his powerful charisma, but vows not make it into more than it is, a great night of sex.

Will Red and Jacqs budding relationship pull apart their tight-knit group of friends and will Jacqs survive being Stuck In Between.

CHAPTER THREE
Stuck in Between – Chapter Three

Blakely Bennett grew up in Southeast Florida and has been residing in the great Northwest for over eight years. She graduated from Nova Southeastern University with a degree in psychology, which accounts for her particular interest in crafting the personalities, struggles, and motivations of her characters. She is an avid reader of many genres of fiction, but especially erotica and romance. Writing has always been her bliss. She is attracted to stories of self-struggle and ultimate recovery.

 

Blakely is married to a wonderful, loving and supportive husband, also a writer, who helps to keep her grounded. She is a mother, a communitarian, a lover of music (always on while she is writing—thank you, Pandora), and a good friend. An advocate of love and female empowerment, she is a facilitator for a women’s group. She loves to walk and hike for exercise and finds that, since moving to Seattle, WA, she is now one of those “crazy” people who walk in the rain.
Stuck In Between (erotic romance) is her 5th novel. She is also the author of the dark erotic suspense, My Body Trilogy (My Body-His, My Body-His (Marcello) & My Body-Mine) and co-authored the contemporary romance, The Demarcation of Jack with her husband, Dana Bennett.

One woman, two men, hmm…
Which one will she choose? One, both, or neither?
Not your Normal Romance Read.
I read this novel as a participating blog of this Release Blitz. Stuck In Between is my first, Blakely Bennett novel. After reading this first novel in the, Bound by Your Love Series, I wonder what will be coming next in this series? For this novel included a lot of very interesting characters and very strong friendships.
Ratings
3.5 book review
3.5 Roses of Writing Raves
The story line leaves the reader wondering how the story will end and which character(s) will be featured as this series continues. The characters themselves are bold, individualistic, and vary in background stories. What brings this interesting group all together? Family, Friendship, and Love. All three of these factors play major roles in the novel.
My favorites about the novel: 1) Heroine is twenty-eight years old, Heroes that are thirty years old. 2) Strong Friendships, and 3) How music factors into each chapter.
Each chapter provides the reader just a little more detail about the various individual characters. Just enough to keep interested in he story line and how their past factors into the series as it grows.
Love. Only four letters. Yet, four letters that can bring either great happiness or great sadness. Everyone wants to be loved. However, love and trust go hand in hand. There can not be one without the other.
Which will the heroes and heroine find at the end of this story?
Overall story line and plot was very creative. Enjoyed the fact that the heroine drove a VW Bug (this reviewers all time favorite car and hopes to have her own someday). And that the novel was set in Florida. This reviewer have not been this far into Florida before, but none the less has Happy memories of the various cities in said state.
Novel contained a few grammar issues, but nothing to major. They could easily be figured out. Readers should be able the follow the time-line of the story. Though there were a few times this reviewer became confused. Once was with the color of the jacket mentioned between Bond and Jacqueline during an outing. A second was during a pool scene and I was like, how did the heroine get dressed so fast. As mentioned above, this reviewer really liked how the author wove music into each chapter. With that being sad, the only downside for this reviewer was that the love triangle between the two heroes and the heroine went on and on. Got to wondering if they were ever going to make a decision, work it all out.  There are three specific days of the week that certain plans are made between various friends. Both heroes have secrets that they keep from the heroine. Do they reveal them all in this first novel in the series, or are there more to come.  that The characters are actually working at everyday jobs and many scenes take place at the heroines job. One scene takes place at a restaurant with swinging booths. This reviewer plans to look this place up or contact author to see if it is a real place. It sounds so wonderful.
tear book review image
1 Tear Drop
As an emotional reader this reviewer did cry once or twice. It was mainly in scenes containing Jacqueline and Bond. I could feel the hurt, confusion, and frustration that Jacqueline had about Bond. In time the reader will come across what makes him act as he does. But even with that being said, if this review had to choose either or, I believe I would be …Team Red!
5.0 Romance Raves
Oh My!! From beginning to end this novel was a rockin’!!! Each hero has his own little ‘bag’ of tricks. And my oh my!!! Let me just say, you might find a trick or two you might want to try!!! The love scenes are the real reason I kept reading this book. They are HOT! HOT! HOT!

Taylor, the wild, impulsive and far-too-appealing seventeen-year-old had been driving him nuts. Her school girl crush on him had been the last thing he needed. Now he had time to concentrate on his booming classic car part business, his new found love– drag racing, and keeping his twenty-year-old brother Barrett out of trouble.

But when Taylor returns from her aunt’s more grown up, utterly seductive, and attached to another guy, Clutch realizes that the only thing he ever needed or wanted was Taylor Flinn.

Excerpt

She came around the corner, unexpectedly and like a hurricane of stars. My mind went completely blank. I hung up and stuck the phone in my pocket.

Taylor’s long lashes curtained her smooth cheeks as she dropped her gaze.

 The adrenaline rush left behind from getting my hands on a sixty-five Shelby morphed into an explosion of every emotion I’d ever felt. I lunged forward and grabbed her hand. She gasped as I dragged her around the back of the building.

I pressed her up against the bricks and stared down at her.

Blogger Review

Hello Readers, I am currently reading this book. I am about half way through so far. So more details will come later. But, for now let me tell you that Tess Oliver is a new author (at least to me). Clutch is the first book by this author that I have read. So far I generally like the book.  I am glad to know that this is a series. Series are my preference when reading. I enjoy connecting with the same characters. Seeing familiar names, backgrounds and new adventures arise with said characters. To me a series brings a reader closer to the characters in the novel. The novel seems more real. Like you might actually know the hero and heroine, and their friends in REAL life. It leads to new developments in a novel that you really hated to see end. Know it continues with new plots and twists.

Clutch is actually Book 2 in Tess Oliver’s Custom Culture Series. However, Clutch can be read as a Stand-Alone novel.  During the read, the reader comes to learn a little about the tight group of friends that help in developing the story, as well as leading to side stories that (at least I hope) will develop into future books in this series.

Chapter 1 start out with the main character (hero) Jimmy aka Clutch in an auto race. It isn’t until later in the chapter that the reader hears this characters name mentioned. While at the track readers are introduced to some of the other characters in the novel. There is Dray, who through his description must be a fighter of some sort.  His girlfriend is Cassie, who has taken up photography and works in FreeFall, Nix’s Tattoo shop. Nix is a good friend and school mate of Jimmy’s (Clutch). Nix is who the first book is about and where the reader first meets this group of characters. Scotlyn is Nix’s girlfriend. In Clutch , the reader gathers that she has had a very hard and difficult life, and that she does not talk very much. Also that Nix loves her very, very much!

The night starts out pretty exciting for Jimmy (Clutch), that is until he comes home. You will have to read the book yourself to find out what happens at this point. As another character is introduced into the novel at this point.

Readers will pick up that Jimmy (or rather James, aka Clutch) is all about classic cars. He and his other good friend, Jason own a classic car repair shop. Now this part is interesting to me, because my brother does the exact same thing. So when the book mentions car shows, and how excited characters get over a certain car, I can actually imagine what that would be like.

Off and on in the beginning of the book the name, Taylor is brought up. What readers can gather  at this point is that she is an older high school student that has a huge crush to the very tall and well built Clutch. Apparently she likes to make herself a nuisance, and is always getting into trouble showing just how big a crush she  has on Clutch. This ultimately gets her sent to Florida to live with a dull aunt for a while during her senior year of high school, (which takes place all in FreeFall, Book 1).

In Clutch, Book 2 of the Custom Culture Series, Taylor has returned home for her eighteenth birthday. Readers now find that she has made a deal with her parents, that she will basically straighten up and fly right (as my own parents still tell me to do at over 40).  So she shuts down her spunky outgoing spirit and dates Adam who is the hottest guy in the senior class. But is Taylor really happy? Her brother sees her as a troublesome nuisance, her mother sees her as hyper and messy (compared to her own quiet temperament, love of all things spit-spot clean and tidy, and dull interests). Her dad…? Well so far the reader will only know how much he likes to yell.

Taylor’s family is constantly watching her, questioning her, and under the spell that Taylor has changed her life. Ah… but has she really?

Taylor has had serious feeling for Clutch since she was sixteen. Clutch has also had a secret crush on her, though he has never shown it. After all she is just a ‘kid’ compared to him, and his best friends sister.

In Clutch, readers  will discover two people that care about each other, but due to this, that, and the other, their feelings get miss understood and hurt feelings come into play. Thus creating the plot for this novel. Will they ever ‘make up’ and become a real couple? Well readers I have not read that far yet. And even if  I had I would not ‘spoil’ the novel for you.

Rating as of 11-30-2013

As of right now my ranking of, Clutch is a 3.5

Earlier I mentioned that I am new to the author, so I am not sure about her style of writing yet. The more I read, the more I will understand in this regard. So far the book has been an easy read. Wording is simple, the chapters are not overly long. Both Clutch and Taylor take turns, giving the reader a POV perspective of said characters. It takes several chapters before Clutch and Taylor actually meet. When they do, sparks fly…but I am not telling you just HOW they spark!

Currently I am on chapter 13, so not quite halfway done with the novel yet. In all there are 29 chapters in this particular novel.

The dialogue has mostly been among the guys in the novel. Cassie, Scotlyn, and Taylor have had minor roles this far in.

The only romance so far has been one HOT kiss between two characters and some sweet kisses between others.

I plan to finish the book, I want to see how it ends. Then depending on my reading schedule, I already have Book 1, FreeFall  in my TBR (To Be Read) collection. Remember I said I liked reading books are a series. Even though Clutch can be read as a stand-alone, I am curious to read the first book and see how the series starts from the very beginning. Thus, probably filling in holes from Clutch, since I am new to all of these characters.

Readers, if you like big hunky guys with long blonde hair, classic cars, tattoos, and a little romance and mystery thrown in, then this book is for you.

Synopsis

After leaving high school, with a hard won diploma and the title of most likely
to break hearts, Alexander “Nix” Pierce has left his wild, out of control years
mostly behind him. A small inheritance from his grandfather has given him the
funds to open up his tattoo shop, Freefall, and he has started to pull his life
together. Aside from trying to keep his best friend, Dray, from killing himself
in the fight ring, and his slight obsession with a pin-up model he’s never met,
Nix’s life is going smoothly . . . until Scotlyn James, the object of his
obsession, walks into his shop.

Ever since a tragic accident
killed her family and left her alone in the world, Scotlyn James hasn’t spoken
one word. Up until now she didn’t care that she had no way of talking to people.
Her awful aunt would never have listened, and Lincoln Hammond the arrogant,
selfish man who pulled her from the streets of Los Angeles wouldn’t hear her
words if she could speak. But when Lincoln insists she get a tattoo to
cover up a scar on her side, Scotlyn meets the artist, Nix Pierce. And now she
longs for her voice. Now she has found someone who will hear
her. 

Caution: This title contains strong language, alcohol
use, violence, and sexual situations.
