Synopsis

A love of a lifetime . . .

Leaving Belmont Clarkson is the hardest thing Sage Alexander has ever done. From the moment they met, she knew Belmont was the one, and getting up close and personal with him on his family’s epic road trip has taken her desire to a new, even hotter level. But there’s no way she can go there—not without revealing secrets that could devastate them both.

Losing Sage is not an option. Belmont’s heart is hers, has always been hers. He knows she’s hiding something from him, but nothing will stand in his way of telling her just how much she means to him. Finding her is easy—saving her from her past could cost him everything.

Excerpt

“You don’t have to leave right away,” Sage said when Belmont turned, watching her from beneath his eyebrows. “Can you wait here while I take a quick shower?”

Maybe that hadn’t been the right thing to say. His big back heaved and the touch of his tongue in her mouth came crashing in like a behemoth wave. They had crossed an unspoken boundary on the train platform. There was no going back to before, to when they stopped at rough, crushing embraces. As if that hadn’t been…more than sexual somehow.

“Yes, I’ll wait,” he said, his voice sounding like serrated metal. “I can light the fire for you.”

I’ll say. God, why did everything sound like an innuendo now? If her body weren’t flush and sweating beneath the jumpsuit, she would have laughed about it. But there was nothing funny about having Belmont looming mere yards away, looking like one word of encouragement would snap his chain and send him barreling toward her. “That would be perfect. I’ll just be…a few minutes.”

Sage all but dove into the itty-bitty bathroom, pressing her back up against the door and willing her racing heart to calm down. Why had she asked him to stay? Her resolve would weaken with every passing second. Biting down on her lower lip, she began the excruciating task of lowering the zipper of her jumpsuit, which kicked up a protest in her triceps and shoulder muscles. When she finally got it down, she gripped the hem of her T-shirt and attempted to lift it over her head.

Her arms wouldn’t cooperate. They flat out wouldn’t rise any higher than her ribs, leaving the T-shirt suspended in midair. Her muscles burned like someone had doused them in lighter fluid and held them above a flame. Sage’s agony must have escaped in the form of a whimper, because Belmont’s boots scraped just outside the door. And her stomach hollowed with awareness, lightning racing all over her skin.

“Sage.” His voice was deep, urgent. “Do you need help?”

No. Say no. She’d only gotten finished reminding him she didn’t need him. But in this case, it would be a lie and she’d done so much of that lately. With Belmont. The most truthful person she knew. “I can’t get my shirt off.” Her nose started to ache, the tip probably turning red. “My arms hurt.”

His growl was short and broken. A beat passed before the door opened and she felt Belmont filling the doorway behind her. She flicked a glance up to the ancient mirror and confirmed what she’d seen in her mind’s eyes. Belmont towering over her like an avenging angel, outlined by candlelight. He’d taken off his coat, leaving him in a black long-sleeved shirt, which he’d rolled up to the elbows. Every inch of visible skin was shot through with strained cords of muscle, as if his frustration were written on him like a road map.

Sage still had the shirt halfway lifted, so her lower back was visible. Not a big deal to most people. But Belmont had never seen anything below her neck. Or above her knees. With the jumpsuit peeled halfway down, the band of her underwear might even be peeking out.

Breathing grew difficult as Belmont took one step closer and took hold of the T-shirt, his knuckles grazing the small of her back. “You’re wearing”—his breath ghosted down her neck—“my shirt.”

Sage only realized she’d closed her eyes when they popped open. Oh God. In the shock of Belmont arriving, she’d forgotten. “I am?” Her mouth was parched. “L-look at that.”

“I am looking.” She jumped when Belmont reached over her shoulder with his left hand and turned on the shower, the sound of spray filling the room. Then the roughness of his knuckles returned, sliding up her spine along with the shirt. “I like knowing there was a layer of me standing between you and the earth.”

Her legs took on the consistency of Jell-O. His touch was a drug, making her languid, although it was different than the way he usually touched her. There was sex this time. So much of it. And it was that major difference that allowed Sage to accept the skimming of his fingers. Accept the part of herself that lusted. They were in a dark room and time had surely suspended anywhere outside this little plot of square footage. Words ached to leave her mouth, words that wouldn’t be suitable in the sunlight. This man, so warm and brave and large at her back, knew things about her no one else did. What was one more secret? “I stole it out of your suitcase. I broke a commandment and everything.”

“Why?” He breathed into her hair, sinking heat like an anchor in her belly. The shirt came off, her arms dropped to her sides, and she was left in nothing but a bra from the waist up. Inches from Belmont. “Why, sweetest girl?”

A light steam had begun curling in the air like beckoning fingers. Maybe this is a dream. It felt like one of the fevered fantasies she woke from on occasion, sweat slicking her breasts and neck. “Because I like the way you smell and it hadn’t been washed.”

His exhale was gravelly. “Sage.”

“Yes.”

She thought he might not respond, but finally he asked a question that made her nipples turn to hard points. “Can you manage”—a long, windy inhale—“the bra?”

Sage tried. She really, truly did. Her arms felt as though they might break off and hit the floor, but she reached back until her muscles locked up, refusing to move farther. But Belmont was already there, pushing them back down, holding them at her hips.

“Jesus. Please, stop. I can’t watch it.” His touch disappeared only for a second and then the cotton material of the bra tightened over her breasts. She could feel him working the back clasp with fingers she knew so well. They’d tunneled through her hair so many times, twisted in her clothing, but had never, ever, touched her with any kind of…intent. Intent to seduce. And that’s what he was doing, intentional or not. The inhibitions she’d held close forever, circled the drain, along with the shower water. “Your back is so beautiful.” A ghost of a fingertip traced down her spine. “But I need to leave before I—”

“What?”

“Before I turn you around.” They weren’t touching, but she could sense the shudder that ran through him. “Or look in that mirror.”

Right or wrong, the mine, their codependency aside, Sage knew if she let him leave just then, she would regret it for all time. Her body had been woken up. By one man. He’d kept her on the razor’s edge for thousands of miles, surrounding her with his power and taking it away. Over and over. And this fever wrapping around them in the tiny bathroom was completely different from easing his anxiety. Finally, she felt like a woman standing in front of him, instead of a calming device. This was mutual and alive and she couldn’t stand it to end. Tomorrow might be a different story, but this moment was the culmination of a thousand dreams and she could no more deny herself than she could forget his face.

“Belmont, do you think of the kiss?”

“I never stop,” he groaned into her hair. “Never.”

She took a deep breath for courage. “Will you shower with me?”

4.5 ‘My Heartbeat/Love of a Lifetime’ Stars

ALL THE FEELS!!!

Seriously, Tessa Bailey just wrecked me with these two’s UNBREAKABLE love story! Belmont and Sage’s broken souls stole my breath and made me cry like a baby – interrupted by so seriously needed fanning myself due their sexual tension and sexy times, it is Tessa Bailey, after all – and proved how family and soulmates’ love and support is the only healing possible! Loved really conquered ALL in this epic ending for this amazing series!

Belmont, the only remaining single – not really, lol – of the Clarkson siblings, has been since the very first book, the character I was most captivated and intrigued about, because for me, like it was reinforced multiple times in this book, Belmont was the core, the driving center of this damaged family. Bel was without a doubt one of the most beautiful male characters I have ever read.

He was the only one of his kind.

Belmont was special and unique in every way, and Sage knew that very well immediately after meeting him, all those years back. They were indeed drawn to each other like two halves of one’s soul.

“Your heart asked mine. And mine was already begging.”

My GOD!!! This man!!! Seriously, his love, no, love is not strong enough would for what we can feel he feels for her, WORSHIP is so much more fitting. Sage was the center of his universe, so when she is obligated to remove herself from his life, to protect him, we could already feel the depth of his heartbreak.

“My heart, Aaron. I don’t think I can keep it beating without her.”

Cue the sobby tears… Fear not, he didn’t spend the rest of the book balled up in despair, and went to get his woman and find out why she left their life so suddenly, and he had quite a battle ahead of him, given Sage was just has damaged as him. I have to say this book truly had all the feels, but in the first half I was a bit too lost inside their heads. Yes, we needed those thoughts to understand these two, but at some points they became almost the entire chapters, and given the sadness and depression of their state of mind, I felt it became too much. Yes, they did indeed live inside their heads, but a bit more of communication or at least an effort too, would have created a different dynamic and undoubtedly reached the full 5 stars for me. Actually Belmont alone would have achieved it!

“My name is Belmont. I’m your daughter’s…” Sweat began to bead on his brow under their close attention. “I’m your daughter’s.”

See what I mean? This introduction to her parents alone shows all everything that Bel is about: Sage’s! 😉

Sage knew exactly his level of devotion, because she reciprocated in measure, and that exactly her fear, considering her parents extreme codependency. That was their hardest obstacle and the line that they feared crossing, and OMG, their struggle just about undid me! It completely torn me apart and I was suffering to find balance right along with them. That woman was strong, because I sure has hell you not be able to resist everything that was Belmont… He was everything!

“I already knew. Because you’re a man who values everyone’s happiness above himself. And that’s what makes you the greatest man any of us will ever know. There’s never been anyone like you, Belmont. There never will be again. How lucky am I that I get to love you?”

She knew how love she was, even given his damaged soul, Belmont gave his all for her, even touching her with a care and love of one who touches a divinity, a relic. When he realized all his love and devotion was not one sided and that Sage crave him just like he craved her, it was like someone gave him the world. Apropos since she was indeed his world.

She fit against him like God had taken a mold of his body and created a woman who would correspond to every jut and angle of him.

Some may consider his level of devotion/obsession too much, too stalkerish, but I adored him for it, and devoured every word from his lips, case in point that I have DOZENS, yes, dozens of Bel’s quotes highlighted on my book, and it was nearly impossible to chose for this review, I wanted to show you everything that Belmont is, and what an lucky lady Sage was. 

There was nothing better in the entire world than being held by Belmont.

So I’ll stop here, and tell all of you to go get Too Beautiful to Break, and find for yourselves just how dreamy, swoon-worthy and perfectly imperfect Belmont is, and how amazing, heartbreaking and soul-warming his and Sage’s story is. Tessa Bailey may have given us the saddest/darkest of her stories in this book, but TBTB was so much more and even being each others one and only – can’t put into words I much I loved that <3 – it didn’t deter TB of given us some of her her trademark steamy hot sexy times, and dirty talk. Told you Bel was perfect in every way! 😉

Too Beautiful to Break was the PERFECT closure for this incredible and emotional series. What a better way to finish than with the person that was the hidden key behind all the complicated Clarksons HEA?! Brilliant Ending for a brilliant Series! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“A fearless man for a fearless woman, Sage. All of me is standing on this beach in front of you. All of me will stand beside you for the rest of my life.”

“There’s my heartbeat,” he whispered in her ear. “I love you.”

Synopsis

A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…
but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.

Excerpt

I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.

His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.

I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.

I don’t know what to say.

This guy has left me sort of speechless.

“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.

“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.

Oh god.

Why am I licking my lips?

It only made his eyes narrow and darken.

        I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?

“This is illegal,” I state.

His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”

I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.

“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”

“So are you, Alana.”

“It’s just … Lana.”

His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”

I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?

“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.

“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.

I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”

He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”

I lose my breath.

My eyes wide.

He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.

“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.

“And go where?”

“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”

Synopsis

 

Evander Lennox doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do.  At least, that is, until he’s sent to prison.  The four years he’s incarcerated, he’s had no choice but to do the things that he’s asked to do, when he’s asked to do them.  And now, if he doesn’t, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell.

Once he’s free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren’t as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He’s just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively.

***

Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere.

When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she’s finally getting to meet the family she’s always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas—giving her almost everything she’s ever wanted.

Just when she thinks she’s making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one.

After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she’s being used. Vowing to herself that she’ll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn’t prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge.

***

It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn’t as bad as it could be.

This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows.

But it doesn’t take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association.

Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side—the loss of everything she’s worked so hard for.

Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it.  Evander, however, decides that he’s not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.

Header Hail No

WOOHOO!!! A brand new LLV series for brighten my month and to gush over!!!

Hail No was more Hail Yeah!, because Evander and Kennedy’s story was the perfect start for this brand new and oh so promising series – if you don’t know what I mean, just check out those covers and Blurbs!!!

Evander has been very recently released from prison where he was wrongly convicted to, and now is back to the town where people seems to either hate him or want to have a roll in his bed. So basically everyone is out to get him, and that makes him awry of everyone. Well that is, until a certain adorable and quirky farmer gave him no other choice.

Kennedy relocated all her life three and a half years ago to start fresh and be near her new found family, specially her twin sister, so now her life is fully dedicated to them as well as to all her farm and its animals. Being the gently and giving soul that she was, when she crossed paths with the giant, smoking HOT tattooed ex-con, she didn’t she what the man that everyone seemed to look down on and be suspicious of, oh no, she saw the real him. And the more she got to know him, the more she wanted him. 

If there’d ever been a time where I wanted a man, it was now. I wanted him, and I wanted him bad.

Being how he knew he had no future to give to anyone, Evander did his best to push Kennedy away, and to show her the damage she was doing to herself by just being near him,even if it killed him to deny the insane attraction that came to the forefront each time they met.

I wanted her. 
I wanted her in my arms. 
I wanted her under my skin.
 I wanted her in my life.

No one could say that Kennedy was a quitter, because each single time that Evander pushed she went and attached herself to him, almost figuratively, lol, and didn’t allow for one single second that the disgusting and unfair townsfolk to keep her from the man she could she was as special and good to heart as they come.

And that’s when I knew that I didn’t care if this was a mistake.
 Nothing this good…nothing that felt this good…could be a mistake.

I loved Kennedy’s battle and resilience, but I really wish she had just fought for herself just as much has she fought for Van or for the rest of her family, but the way she was a pushover for them, and the horrible way they treated her, left me felling down with the character. 

Also, adding to that that I prefer when the H is the pursuer, and here it felt that Kennedy was the chaser for the beginning at least. Don’t get me wrong, I adored that she defended him, and didn’t give up on being near, I just felt if she hadn’t they probably would have never have this epic love they did, that he would have let his demons steal it, while blinded by his sense of protection and preservation of her, that would never have taken the chance, the risk. On that point I’m so glad she did, because of it he fell hook, line and sinker, and it was beautiful to see.

She’d wormed herself into my life, planted herself so deeply into my goddamn heart that I didn’t think I’d ever be man enough to let her live without me.

And damn, it’s such a shame on that point, because this man had Best Book Boyfriend written all over him! Ok, he still is that, very much so, and given how rightfully awry he is of people, I say he took a huge leap, along Kennedy in. Not only in, but completely sealing his heart!

I swear to Christ, this woman was my fuckin’ heart.

And in turn, he stole mine right out of my chest, right along with Kennedy’s, because every love profession, every  loving gesture, after he came to terms with it, was a thing of beauty. Yes, I could have gone without the numbering of how many woman he slept with, and his manwhore past, but I understood why he felt the need to do it, given Kennedy was given him her virginity, but he just went the wrong way at it. Typically guy mistake. LOL 

I quickly forgave him, though, first because all this was in the past, before meeting the heroine, second, because that is no longer the man he was, and he changed his ways after prison, so it has been a looooonnnggggg time for him, and third, he said the most swoon worthy things to Kennedy! Seriously, I melt in a puddle more than once!

“Spent every fucking second, of every fucking day since I’ve met you, thinking about you. Worrying about you. Wondering if you’ve eaten yet,” I whispered against her skin.  “I’ve slept with you only a handful of times, but it was enough to know that I don’t ever want to sleep without you again.”

OMG, see what I mean?! <3

Oh, Lani Lynn Vale has yet again made me cry – as well and laugh and all the other feels – in this book, because there are a couple of scenes there that if, like me you’re a animal lover, I’m certain you’ll be sobbing too, so don’t say you weren’t warned.

Evander and Kennedy were indeed the perfect introduction to the Hail Raiders series, and we could already meet most of the future Main Male Characters, and I considering all the trouble and troubled character, each and everyone of them seems to be, they look beyond promising! I feel another LLV epic series coming, and I can’t wait!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 

“There is one thing on this Earth that has the power to destroy me.  That’s you,” he declared.  “I love you, and I can’t imagine a life without you.  There’s not a single moment that goes by throughout the day that I don’t think about you.  So yes, I love you. It doesn’t matter if you break my heart for all to see…I’ll love you forever and always.”

Header Running Into Love

Running Into Love was one of the sweetest, funny and most lighthearted novels I’ve read in a while! A true feel-good kind of story!

Fawn, after a long line of disastrous relationships and dates, has basically given up on the dating scene. Add to that her nerdy and homebody character, she doesn’t hold much hope to find a love like her parents, a true forever kind of relationship.

That is, until she literally runs into a delectable shirtless stranger, LOL!

Levi, recently relocated to NYC, doesn’t know what hit him when this quirky and clueless gorgeous woman comes his way, so when he finds out she’s his brand new neighbor. Instantly attracted, he knows a good thing when he sees it, and he knows Fawn needs to be his, now he just had to convince her…

No one has ever kissed me the way he does. No one has ever made me feel the way he does—like he’s marking me, claiming me as his.

Or better yet, show her, because this woman was so adorably clueless when it came to the opposite sex. That was just one of the numerous qualities that hooked Levi in, as well as it did me. I loved her inner thoughts and hilariously awkward situations, she put herself (and her sisters) in. I couldn’t get enough, and neither could Levi. 😉

The woman who has made me want more out of life, the woman I want to spend my life with.

Levi was every bit of ARR Alpha – with a bit of more added patience, lol – and I adored how insistent and relentless he was in his pursuit of showing Fawn all they could be, and how he felt towards her, in all his protective, possessive and loving splendor. He was amazing!
And Muffin!!! How could I forget the Levi’s main supporter and advocate! That dog was awesome and needs lifelong supply of treats for all his role in bending Fawn to what was right in from of her!

Aurora Rose Reynolds, in Running Into Love gave me everything I look for in my Romance: a lot of funny touched with a bit of sadness, romantic and loving moments spiced up with some sexy times, delicious banter and to top it of a interesting suspense subplot that ties it all in this fantastic and colorful bow! Perfect start for this brand new ARR series!

Equally fantastic were all the secondary characters – seriously, their families were a hoot! – and I’m counting down the days until the next books of the series, and I’m crossing my fingers that we get Mac and Wesley as well as Libby and Lucas as MCs for the upcoming books!!! Pretty please?! Can’t wait!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“You stole my heart and my breath the day you ran into me,”

Header Drunk On You

SACREBLEU!!! *cue dousing myself with cold water*

Yeah, Harper Sloan always gives us smoking hot books, but ladies, this one was OFF THE CHARTS!!! One of the hottest books I have ever read, without a doubt. So considered yourselves warned – Panties may self combust with Mr. Control Freak himself, Shane Kingston! 😉

If you’ve read When I’m With You, Nate and Ember’s story, Shane and Nikki are no strangers to you, as the best friends, respectively, of the couple.

Physically attracted to one another from the moment they met, they never acted on it, first, because they were both in relationships at the time, and then when they were both cheated on and had to break it, because they were not aware the other was single, given their exs couldn’t seem to let them go. Well, Nikki has reach her limit, so why not use their unmeasurable attraction, to kill two birds with one stone, and get rid of the clingers, faking a relationship, while indulging on their bodies craving for one another?! Sounds simple enough, right?! LOL

I miss the connection I’ve deprived myself of. The chemistry between a man and woman. Companionship.

I was completely in control of my life now. Nothing would change that.

Of course, Shane is not that easy to convince – hello, Mr. Control Freak after all –  and tries to prove that to Nikki, and show her all the reasons for which it can be a bad idea. Not, mind you, because he doesn’t want her (oh boy, does he WANT her), but because he knows that nothing is simple about their volcanic connection.

Until the day that changes, I’m going to keep doing what I’ve done since the day she crashed into my life … ignore the twinge inside me that demands I claim her.

“A man like me … I would ruin you and have you begging to be ruined all over again once you’d recovered.”
“Don’t underestimate me, Shane Kingston.”

Oh, that’s right, also because he’s truly a control freak in every way, but specially the bedroom! That’s right, you can call him SIR! Like that man needed to be any hotter! With moves and sex appeal like his, poor Nikki, she stood no chance! 

All I can do now is pray that she meant what she said because, one way or the other, Nikki Clark will be mine.

But Nikki isn’t the only one being surprised, because not in a million years, would Shane have guessed that the sexy, sassy and outspoken Nikki, to be a submissive at heart. Well, lucky for them! Match made in Kinky Heaven! 😉

Until this moment, I never would have guessed I had a docile bone in my body, but there is no doubt Shane dominates every single part of me. 
Body and mind.

“Your body burns for me, Nikki, and all I’ve done is tasted your mouth. You think it matters if we know each other past that to fuck? I barely touch you, and you come alive.”

A we all know, there is never anything simple on a fake relationship arrangement, specially when the couple is burning up the sheets, at the level these two are, so evidently feelings can’t be deleted from the equation, on either part, and that apparent simple agreement is just the start of something SO much deeper. 

With just her hands and mouth, she fucking owns me. 
And I’ll gladly let her.

The last thought I’m aware of floating through my mind is that I’ve just been ruined for any other man. I’m so royally and literally screwed now.

“Not sure I can be your fake anything, mon colibri.”

Just like the last time with him, my mind fogs and I become drunk on the feelings he brings forth with his touch.

Yep, we knew it, and deep down they knew it too, so when the feeling became too much, too strong, and to apparent, there was nothing left but take them to heart and assume all they were to each other. I loved that them didn’t roll around in denial for almost all the book, it took a serious event, and a bit of help from their friends, but upon realization there was no more denial, and it was full steam ahead. And if there was one thing these two had in abundance it was STEAM!

“The first time I felt that hummingbird vibrate against my naked skin, you became mine, and there wasn’t a fucking thing fake about it, Nicole.”

“Do you see how hard I am for you?” 
“Yes, Sir,” she pants.
 “Never, Nicole. I’ve never wanted someone as much as I do you.”

I have to stand out this, Shane was a pack of male deliciousness! Seriously, Harper gave us a irresistible male character with this man, a smoking hot package with unaccountable sex appeal, rocking the bedroom talk with his domineering ways, speaking and saying the sweetest things in the language of love, like we stood any chance, declares and pours his heart out in the most swoon-worthy matter! Even his thoughts were gold I tell you!

When you have the real thing, you can see how cheap the imitations you had in the past hold up in what matters in life.
Almost two months ago, the girl I had a crazy-as-fuck crush on gave me an opening. I didn’t realize she would become my everything when we started our fake relationship. Now, I know there was never anything about it that wasn’t real. She’s meant for me. I was made for her. Two halves of a fucking whole and I know, without her, I’ll never have happiness again.

Sure, the whole sexual/sensual dancing with teasing and grinding for other women was something that put me off, personally, because I’m far too possessive of my male characters and my man to allow that (LOL), but Nikki was perfectly fine with it. She even got off on it, so you know, whatever rocks your boat.

Even if he was stripping it all off like he used to, I think I would still feel the same way. He’s mine and I’m his. The rest is just a show.”

It really was a beautiful and well written story, and I enjoyed and loved reading about these two, though I would have loved even more without a doubt if not for his – and hers – insistence on the whole ‘show’ side, because there was one or two moments in those events I really wish it weren’t featured there. I could live with a stage performance, with zero contact with the audience, but the way it happened, that was just a major turn off for me, and made me mad with Shane, and not for the same reasons Nikki was, LOL. It’s no news how jealous and possessive I am with my Hs! Yes, I’m weird like that. 😉

There was also a couple of character and development inconsistencies, that caught my attention, as well as a too big emphasis on their attraction from the moment they met, but easily discarded that I know it was the right attitude at the time for them, but I didn’t wan’t emphasized so much, and more than once in the present. I don’t want to be reminded more than once they were instantly and constantly attracted to one another, but easily moved on to other people (specially in Shane’s case), and didn’t fight for that connection. Their love story starts in the present, so let’s forget all about those feelings in the past.

Don’t get me wrong, those are just a details, because Shane really was close to perfect, and the way he grovels in the end… WOW! I fell for him and his french silver tongue right then and there! Full on dreamy devotion to Nikki! Sigh…

You have all of me. “There is nothing more important than that, mon amour. Every single inch of me. Inside and out. Body and heart. My control and trust. It’s all yours, Nikki.”

Drunk On You – which is the perfect title, btw – surprised me in the best of ways, and like I said before, you can’t forget something that is easily one of the HOTTEST stories you have ever read! It’s a really high bar that Harper Sloan set here, with these two. I devoured this as fast as starving person faced with a decadent chocolate cake – ok, with Harper Sloan’s I always do, lol – , and I wanted even more of these two, but I’m sure that just like with Ember and Nate, that we got to see quite a lot, and I loved every second, Shane and Nikki will get plenty of air time in his sister’s book, the next Hope Town! Can’t wait!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

“Je t’aime,” she gasps, her whole body shaking as she continues to cry, only now she’s smiling the biggest grin down at me. “I love you,” she repeats. “I love you so much it hurts.” 
“Je t’aime, mon amour. Je t’aime.”

In the end, we both got our exes out of our lives and won the greatest gift of all. 
Each other.

Excerpt

“Climb gates around here often?” he asked, no censure in his voice. I realized he spoke English as fluently as he spoke Spanish.

               He was clad in navy basketball shorts, a pair of Nike running shoes and he was just sweaty enough for me to realize he’d likely been working out. I swear I was hypnotized by all of his exposed skin, so much so that I could just about remember my own name at that moment. I’d have blamed the fall for my dazed and confused frame of mind but that wasn’t it at all. It was purely because of him—the sexy Spanish-speaking god who’d saved me from certain harm. My eyes trailed along his muscular but lean body hungrily as I catalogued just how ridiculously gorgeous he was. I was hypnotized by his six-pack and the set of V-cut muscles I had an insane urge to trail my fingers over.

               I’d have kept right on staring had he not cleared his throat. I cringed as I came back to reality and realized he’d asked a question I hadn’t retained.

               “Um, huh?” I asked, perfectly clueless.

               “I was asking if you’re a professional gate climber,” he said huskily.

               “No, I—”

               “She’s really fine after a fall from that height?” the officer asked as he came through the gate.

               “She never hit the ground,” my savior said, “since I caught her.”

               The cop looked almost as impressed as I felt. I’d have heaped praised onto the stranger who saved me had I not remembered that I needed to be focused on a more pressing concern.

               “So now that I’m on this side I really need to get my—”
               The officer pinned me with a look that left no doubt that he was in charge. “Miss, please remain silent while I work out what’s going on here.”

               I pursed my lips and tried to contain my annoyance. I knew he was just doing his job but all I cared about was finding Elvis.

               The officer turned back to the Spanish model—I naturally assumed he modeled because he looked like he belonged in sensual looking black and white ads for men’s cologne. You know the kind of ads I’m talking about, right? There’s always a sexy guy giving you the let’s have all the sex look with a set of eyes that are clearly attempting to hypnotize you into buying something.

                He was at least six feet tall and had a head full of thick, dark hair. His face was perfectly proportioned from forehead to chin, and I could find nothing that didn’t appear to be symmetrical. He had a ridiculously sexy closely trimmed beard that I wanted to trace with my fingers and his jaw was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. I turned crimson when my eyes trailed up and met his and I realized he was observing me—which meant he knew I’d been staring at him. Again.

               I bit my lip and tried not to blush as I blinked like an idiot. I was relieved to have a reason to look to the police officer when he cleared his throat to get our attention. “Are you the one who called about the disturbance down the side of the house?” he asked.

               I couldn’t resist the urge to let my eyes wander back to the Spanish god. I knew just enough Spanish to determine that if his looks were rated on the salsa scale he’d be called el más caliente.

               His eyes were on me as he answered the cop. “My brother called, yes.”

               “What’s your name, sir?”

               “Alejandro Cruz.”

               Even his name was sexy. My skin felt hot and prickly under his gaze. Anxious for a reprieve, I looked back to the officer.

               The cop nodded as he took note of it on his pad. “And your brother’s name?”

               “Rafael Cruz.”

               “And you?” the cop asked with a head nod toward me.

               “Kaya Porter.”

               “Can you spell that?”
               “K-a-y-a,” I answered.

               “That’s a weird name,” the officer said as he wrote it down.

               I wasn’t sure if he was being rude or not so I shrugged and said nothing. Alejandro growled something under his breath that I couldn’t understand. A shiver went down my back at the way the words rolled off his tongue. His Spanish accent fascinated me. I’d never been one to care one way or the other about a man’s voice, but his did things to me. I wondered if audio erotica was a thing. If it were, I would pay a subscription fee to hear him talk all day.
               “So were you trying to escape or get in?” the officer asked, ruining my good fantasy about an Alejandro Cruz dirty talk subscription service.

               “I was trying to get in,” I answered stiffly, annoyed that the officer had already forgotten everything I’d said, “I told you—”

               “No, no, she is not the disturbance,” Alejandro interjected. “My brother thought someone was trying to steal God only knows what from the exterior of the house. He was asleep and heard something outside his bedroom window and panicked. He shouldn’t have called the police—it’s animal control that we need. Some dickhead bird went through the trash that my brother forgot to secure and he’s been leading him on one hell of a chase around the yard.”

              My eyes narrowed and my hands went to my hips as I stared down the model. “Don’t talk about my little buddy like that,” I snapped.

 

Header I Want

QUE CALOR!!! Really, HOT DAMN!!! I feel like I should build a shrine for these Cruz brothers, because they are  whole new league of their own in matters of Best Book Boyfriend. 

Trust me, if you haven’t yet read the first installment, I Don’t, you need to. STAT! I though Mateo was as good as it could get, with all my ideals for main male character more than filled out. Well, seems I shouldn’t have supposed because Alejandro is just as dreamy and delicious! 

It didn’t matter because just like Mateo had said about the night he saw Avelina in the sunroom, I knew what Kaya was to me.

Yep, you got it right, Alejandro will conquer all your hearts and make you swoon, hard!

Alejandro and Kaya meet when she falls on his arms, literally, in her mission to recover her borrowed pet peacock, Elvis. Let’s just say it’s the most of unconventional first meets, but boy did it pack a punch. For both of them!

As much as I wanted to pretend I wasn’t, the truth was that I was beyond attracted to Alejandro Cruz.

Here it start the major swooning moments, given it only took that chance, brief encounter for Alejandro to know that Kaya is everything he’s been looking for – very unsuccessfully we might say,lol – and to know he’ll do anything to prove and show her she’s his one.

“Be careful, man. Your past—” 
“Is just that,” I interrupted. “It’s in the past. I never knew what I was looking for until I met her.”

Once again I was enchanted with how Ella developed this story, considering even though we have this instant-love/lust, their relationship has a wonderful slow built, starting with a good friendship, when both their bodies craved so much more, but Alejandro showed once again how incredible he was, because that is just what Kaya needed, patience, love and care. The insane attraction was always present, he just had to show her all they could be.

Our chemistry was electric, so much so that you could almost see it arcing between. I’d do whatever needed to be done to get her on board with being mine. Already I knew I was hers.

I can’t enhance enough how much I love all these characters, both the main ones and all the secondary ones, even the grumpy Rafael. And Elvis! OMG, he was bloody brilliant, and kudos to Ella for thinking so outside the box with not only in regards of the type of pet (loved all the extra info about this beautiful species I knew very little about), but also for giving him a more important role than I could have dreamt of! 

Alejandro was thankful to Elvis for all his help, and he was spot on! Without Elvis he never would have so easily conquered – or met – his soulmate!

I knew Kaya was different—had known it since the moment I met her. She wasn’t my past—she was my future.

From the first touch of his lips to mine I knew that Alejandro Cruz was in a class all of his own.

They really were PERFECT together! Completed each other in everything, and you could feel they were meant to be and I was rooting for them from the start, and so giddy with excitement right along with Kaya, because, hello? Hot swoon worthy, gorgeous latino! How could we resist?

“I wish there were a way to explain just how much I love your touch on my skin,” he said. “It is everything, Kaya. Everything.”

He was too much and not enough all at once, the most perfect symphony of feeling I’d ever experienced in my life.

Sigh… How good and delicious his this man?! And HOT! Sexy hot! Loyal, devoted, loving and caring, and all wrapped up in the perfect and irresistible package! Ella Foy hit all the right notes with I Want, exactly like she did with I Don’t, giving us this enticingly captivating, sweet and super sexy little read, that left me now craving, longing, even more for Rafael’s story, I need. Specially after that tidbit at the end! Now I’m the one that needs it, and NEED IT, NOW! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Te amo.”
Her eyes widened and her lips opened in surprise. “Is that—did you just tell me that you love me?”
“Sí, mi amor. I love you, Kaya.”

“There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you, Kaya. The instant you fell into my arms I knew you were my soulmate. Everything I’ve done since then has been about keeping you.”

               “I was trying to get in,” I answered stiffly, annoyed that the officer had already forgotten everything I’d said, “I told you—”

               “No, no, she is not the disturbance,” Alejandro interjected. “My brother thought someone was trying to steal God only knows what from the exterior of the house. He was asleep and heard something outside his bedroom window and panicked. He shouldn’t have called the police—it’s animal control that we need. Some dickhead bird went through the trash that my brother forgot to secure and he’s been leading him on one hell of a chase around the yard.”

              My eyes narrowed and my hands went to my hips as I stared down the model. “Don’t talk about my little buddy like that,” I snapped.

Synopsis
 

Baseball is life, the rest is just details.

Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.

Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.

Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends.  He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.

People think he’s a jerk.

And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.

***

Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.

Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat.  She was just there to do her job.

Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks.  And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.

But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.

What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.

Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent.  Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?

Wrong.

This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.

What else did she get?

The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.

It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.

HOT DAMN!!!These girls are AWESOME!

And yes, I mean both this writing duo and these Coltraine twins!

One Coletrain fleeing is not good, but those two teamed up is bound to be catastrophic.

After reading the first book, Jail House Rock, I thought things couldn’t get much better and funny than Millie and Jake, but boy was I wrong! Tillie, the true outlaw sister, and Nathan – aka Oficcer Trent – were absolutely brilliant. They are the proof that opposites do indeed attract, and even though they’re on opposite sides of the law, nothing can stop their destiny.

There’s only one thing I’ve ever wanted more than being a cop, and currently, she is Sugar Hills’ number-one fugitive.

Officer Nathan Trent, resident all-around good guy. My heaven. My hell.

And if they try, Nate isn’t going to allow it, because one thing he has no doubt since he was a boy, and he took a look at those blue eyes, Tillie Coletrain was HIS. After that he just had to bid his time until she was ready for him to lay his claim. Well, seems that time has come…

Despite knowing how wrong we look for each other from the outside, I know—and have always known—we are a perfect match.

Tillie may try to run, hide or push him away – she has done it countless times, lol – , even though she has wanted him for long to, but considering she thinks she is not good enough for him, she doesn’t even contemplate he can be hers, but Officer Trent is not taking no for an answer, and uses all the guns at his disposal to prove to her, he knows all that she hides behind that sassy and badass persona, and he loves all of her. That, and he’s been waiting all this time for her! Yes, ladies, a virgin H! Just one of the reasons for which I ADORED him soooo much!!! Best Book Boyfriend material right here!

He kisses me like he’s forgotten every mouth but mine. He meets my lips with the kind of fervor that makes me feel like he thinks he’s the lucky one and I’m the best thing that’s ever happened to him. And I’ve never been anyone’s best anything.

Wild Thing was absolute smutty perfection! Über funny and lighthearted, a super sweet and sexy alpha that proves himself BBB material, with some smoking hot moments and a kickass heroine with a huge heart. Indeed a fast paced, addictive little read, that I loved even more than the first book. Can’t wait to see what these ladies will bring us next! Maybe the nutty Hannah and her very own version of SOA, Jax?! LOL <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“For fuck’s sake, Officer Trent. Put the artillery away,” I say, nudging his big bicep with my elbow. “We aren’t at the damn gun show.”

“Always knew my heaven could be found between your thighs,”

Synopsis

After a painful loss, Cady Moreland is coming to Magdalene to start the next chapter of her life. A chapter that began eighteen years ago but had a heartbreaking ending. The time in between was full of family and friendship, but Cady could never get the man she fell in love with all those years ago out of her heart. 

Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn’t and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing…and life-altering betrayal. 

But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town’s beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can’t. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won’t be ignored. 

As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

Header Time in Between

Well, seems I’m yet again the odd woman out, since most of my friends seemed to love this one, but, Oh man, I can’t believe how disappointed I am right now….

This is one of my fav KA series, and I had such high expectations for The Time in Between from the moment it was announced, but Coert and Cady’s just let me down in a big way.

Coert turned out to be a major asshole, yes, KA’s Hs, always have some jerk moments, but this one… Lord, I just couldn’t forgive him, specially because of his mean, awful treatment of the h, and it last for so long, almost till 50%! And to top then (SPOILER ALERT) he finally goes and admits their break up and separation was mostly his fault, and confesses he never stopped loving her, which didn’t stop him from dating and dating after, and even getting engaged, with no mind of Cady’s feeling, even thinking the she was keeping tabs on him, arghhhh…(SPOILER END) and bam, does 180 and NO GROVELLING!!!! And here is the second part of my huge disappointment, Candy, oh, Cady…. One of the weakest and more doormat female character I have ever read! 🙁 This woman, really was an emotional punching bad, over, and over, since the beginning, and by everyone (yes, even her longing actual family, admit to being horrible in the start and she taking it). Yes, it’s good to have a forgiving nature, at least that’s what I’m told- I’m personally a grudgeful bitch, no news here, lol, and maybe why it bother me that much – but Cady was the very definition of sacrificial lamb! She took it, and took it, and even after they made up, she just pretended like there was no 18 year separation and that still everything was HER fault, or that it was to forget… Good God, woman!
Anyway, rant is over, and I have to point out, as usual I was involved with the writing, though we still get a lot of repeated KA maneirisms, but it was an interesting storyline, but I couldn’t get past these MCs personalities and characterization.
Of course what ended up saving, and raising this rating from a negative one was that PERFECT Epilogue! Lordy, that beautiful ending, was so emotional, so HEA in every way, and tied up the series with the perfect bow, that almost made me forget the disappointment with rest of the story, almost…. Sigh…

About the Author

Kristin Ashley - headshot

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
