Book 13 in the USA Today Bestselling Impossible Series—Can be read as a standalone.

 

A man with a broken heart…

The agony of losing the woman I love to another Dominant has left me dead inside. Over the last two years, sex has become my drug of choice to cope with the loss. I know I’m too broken to ever love again, but that won’t stop me from trying to fuck my pain away.

 

A woman with a painful past…

I’m not interested in intimacy, but I am interested in sex. As a BDSM romance novelist, I need to explore the world of kink for my books. The power exchange is meaningless; nothing more than research. Until I meet him. The powerful Dom won’t relent until he breaks down all my walls, including the ones that protect my ravaged heart.

 

Bound together by lust and danger…

Chloe Martin is a BDSM romance author by night and an investigative journalist by day. When the latter brings her to the New York unit of the FBI to research the Latin Kings, she never expects her two careers to collide. The agent she’s shadowing—Dexter Scott—is also a Dominant, and he’s interested in helping with her research in the field and in the bedroom.

 

But Chloe’s story on the Latin Kings puts her in the line of fire, and Dex’s protective—and possessive—instincts kick in. Can he let go of his pain and find his happily ever after? Or will the danger that surrounds them steal his second chance at love?

About The Book COT Blue

Davis believed his life and everything about it was perfect.

He had a great job, his own house on the beach complete with a private ‘dungeon’ for his more adventurous encounters, great friends, the perfect club membership at a private BDSM club, and what he felt was most important, total control – until the day he was forced to realize that perfection wasn’t something he could control.

Imanya and Kaena were as opposite as two women could be, but had one thing in common…Davis.

Learning to trust again will prove that while he is the ‘dominant’ in the bedroom, they control what really matters…his heart.

Book Review ~The Coolest Way~ Nicholas Tanek

The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself

by:  Nicholas Tanek

18673607[1]

e4785-newsynop

Okay. So no one actually kills themselves in this book.

The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself pulls you into the early 90’s New York City rave scene, in all its chaotic, psychedelic glory. The narrator grabs you by your wrist and drags you behind two teenage lovers from New Jersey as they tumble through a whirlwind of reckless hedonism that eventually spirals into a dark, devastating world of drug addiction and heartbreak.

As a teenager, Lynn cried, “No one is ever going to write something for me.” Nearly two decades later, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Nicholas did just that. The gesture came too late for our unlikely heroine, but his heart was in the right place. A broken heart… but a true love. Reunited after years apart, Lynn and Nicholas embraced their love and sexuality, and embraced each other, despite troubled pasts, despite illness, despite all of their imperfections and mistakes. They shared the kind of honest and shameless connection that few have had the honor of knowing, and most would never understand.

“We’re not hurting anyone. We’re just living life without caring what anyone thinks about us.”

“It’s the coolest way to kill ourselves,” Lynn said.

So turn the page, and pull the trigger.

Nicholas Tanek is an American ghostwriter from New Brunswick, New Jersey. He graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelors in English. He has been a ghostwriter for over 15 years.

My name is Nicholas Tanek and I wrote The Coolest Way as a tribute to the love of my life who passed away 2 years ago at the age of 37. This book is the most important thing that I have done in my life. This true story tells a love story that spans two decades. We dealt with depression, drug addiction, abuse, homelessness, prostitution, and many other devastating issues. Although it was just a summer romance that faded away, we came back years together. We saved each other. Love and honesty saved us. It was not religion. It was not psychotherapy. Love saved us. I promise you that this is a very unique and personal book. It is a true story that is filled with hard drugs, kinky sex, and an endless amount of music references. Please read with an open mind and an open heart. It’s the coolest way…

5 – Roses – Unique Writing – Open-Honest-Gritty-Raw

How do you even express yourself for a book such as this, I’m not sure.  I’m completely at a loss for words here just as much as I’m at a loss as to how to mentally repair myself.  This Author really knows how to reach way down deep into your soul and rip everything out.  I honestly feel destroyed, damaged, wrecked, and torn asunder, however at the same time I do feel more complete, fulfilled, or maybe just healed enough to move on with my own life and brush the struggles from my past aside.  No matter what the Title to the book is people, his words hold a true meaning for real life and true love.

5e4ce90e4b830fa2fc5b708d610366a7[1]

5 – Hearts – True Love – Soul Mates

The Author tells this story of his own real life circumstances in a very true, gritty and raw way, it truly is a work of art and unique to his own style of writing.  He tells us about two people who are destined to be soul mates for I believe this is what they were, a true romance and a forever kind of love.  They start out very young yet share many experiences and go through a lot of emotional turmoil together.  This is his story, written for his love, Lynn.  This is his tribute to her as she passed and left him to mourn and struggle to overcome his grief. 

Quotes:

“Like a suicidal person on a cliff,  you just jump.  Love is a feeling that is worth dying for.” 

“Romance and danger are intertwined.  The danger makes the romance sexier.”

“Jealousy is a dangerous mistress who will always leave you bruised.”

5 – Tears – Emotional Turmoil

The Author introduces us to the most honest and strongest woman I think I’ve ever read about, she was emotional but tough, independent, strong and her strength helps her overcome things no woman should ever have to go through.  She has been through hell and back, struggling through addiction, mental and physical abuse, battered, bruised, homeless and later prostitution.   She was an inspiration, she was a survivor.

Lynn wanted more from Nicholas, she wanted the whole American Dream, a husband, a family, the white picket fence and all.  Nicholas wanted to live first, he was still very young and sex, drugs and rock and roll were what this era was all about, he wanted to experience it all.  He did.  She did.  They did.  This story is the consequences from those actions and their experiences.

The most unusual and uniquely original things about this author’s style of writing is his honest and open ability to share these experiences without regard to anyone’s censor.  Meaning who cares what other people think, words do hurt, but he is honest and true to himself and us and willing to share these struggles and life’s experiences with the world.  I absolutely admire him for this and always will.  He is my inspiration and my muse.

Nicholas goes on to tell about experimenting with kink and opens up about his fascination with Femdom, which he later explains in detail.  He tells about his experiences with sex, drugs, raves, and I truly think that music somehow played a big part in his coping mechanism to overcome his addiction to many things.

I could probably talk for hours about this beautiful one of a kind masterpiece but I shall have to stop now, I’ve said to much already.  This book has changed my way of life and my way of thinking, I definitely feel as if everyone should have a copy of this and experience a sense of freedom.  Open yourself up people.  Pick this copy up, find love, happiness, heal, move on and have joy.

Mr. Tanek I cannot do justice with this review, all I can say is Thank You so much for changing my way of thinking and helping ME heal.  You should not put a number of stars on perfection!

brick synopsisHope and Cameron made a five-year promise before college. Years pass and they never see each other again. But then one month before his planned wedding to Riley, Cameron looks outside and sees Hope in the pouring rain, watching him. Now, three years later, Cam has one day – a sick day on this last Friday of summer – to convince the one woman whose very existence breaths life into his lungs, that sometimes love like theirs actually does exist, and it’s that kind of love that lives forever, no matter how hard you fight to forget about it and move on. From the author of non friction and Hope, Sick Day follows one man’s day-long attempt to persuade the love of his life that sometimes it’s okay to break promises if it means keeping the ones that count.

5 – Roses – Romantic Love Story – Creative Unique Writing

I’m sure we have all had days where we want to play hooky, our physical beings are unable to go on, or maybe our emotional psyche is just in ruins.  In this creative story we find sometimes love is the common denominator that filters into a blood stream and takes control of emotional and physical functions.  Sometimes one cannot sleep, the mind continues to dredge up memories of past encounters.  One cannot eat for our bodies are full of emotional turmoil and yet somewhat empty for want of more… what could have been… what could be…

5 – Hearts – Devoted Couples – Love

Cameron is engaged to married, he has a unfulfilling job, he is lost, confused and desperate to fill a void he is missing in life.  Years ago he chose to walk away from a promise he once gave to his college love, his one true love, the one that got away, the woman he chose to let go and walk away from.  Desperate to find this missing piece of his life he decides to take drastic measures and take a Sick Day from work to conquer a heart worth living for.

~Cameron:  “I can’t have two halves of one life.  One that belongs exclusively to you, and the other that belongs to the hope of replacing you.  I can’t… exist without you.”

Hope McManus thinks she is stable enough in life where she came move on and settle down with someone she might be able to settle for.  She finds she must have Closure from her past with the only man she ever loved in order to end this unsettled feeling.

~Hope:  “I came here to find you, Cameron, but if you don’t tell me why you disappeared, you’ll never see me again.  I can’t keep beating myself up over this.”

3 Tears – Emotional Drama

The emotional drama the author weaves in this romantic tale of woe and passion is enough to have hearts pumping and nerves are forever frayed.  The author writes in detail about how the thoughts and feelings of each character are portrayed, the scenery around them is described almost as if you were there… in the park, at a candlelight dinner, on a beautiful yacht and falling in love all over again.

3 – Lips –  Hungry Love-Making

The spice we find in between the sheets in this romantic love story is exactly what we would want to explore when two people come together and share their souls.  The turmoil was evident when their touches consumed them, their past collided when their lips savored each others and their bodies connected when their desires took control.

My middle finger massaged her clit before reaching even farther south and dipping into her, just a shallow taste on my fingertip.

We kissed hard, lost in the thrusts, my hands gripping hers so fiercely that my fingers went numb.

Watching her, feeling her come against me.. it spelled my end as well.

Will this long ago promise survive the test of time.  Will these long ago lovers reconnect.  Will love last.  Let’s find out in this drama filled romantic tale of passion, woe and LOVE reunited.

Thank you Morgan Parker!
