Logical. Rich. Driven. And he wants her. . .

More Than Crave You, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black is LIVE!

04 MoreThanCraveYou.jpg

I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined Nia could consume me. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart. Can I prove I more than crave her before it’s too late?

REVIEW:

This is the story of another Reed sibling, this time a half-brother named Evan Cook who has built a company from the ground up, and always with his assistant by his side. He hired Nia straight from college and never regretted it. Since losing his wife in a car accident, his now ready for a new wife to sort his personal life which has been a disaster.
Always being an analytical person he decides to place an ad and Nia can get him a short list. Bas and Nia who are close to him can’t believe that’s what he wants. So Nia goes around to help sort out his flat, and show him the basics.
This is a love story that at times is so sad, especially with Evan growing up in foster care has no idea how to deal with real emotions. At other times a story with great hope for the future. This is the story of a man who discovers what love is, when he has never been showed love. Nia has always loved Evan and she tries to show him what love is.
This is told from mostly from Evan’s POV, and how he learns about himself and how he learns to recognise love. This is a unusual love story, as the man in question has always lived in his brain, he learns all about his heart.

The biggest story of her life is the one he wants to hide.

I’m homeless by choice.
I have no intention of returning to my former life after what I’ve done.
This—living among the filth and discarded remnants of others—is what I deserve.
As atonement for my sins, I give back; I help those who cannot help themselves. But it’s always under the guise of anonymity.
Newspaper headlines throughout the city are clamoring to discover my identity. Including the beautiful woman who manages to see through my “armor.”
She has the capability to put my entire life at risk.

REVIEW:

The Good Samaritan is a powerfully written romance, there is so many great characters in this book, it a treat for the senses. It also highlights real problems so many people suffer from.
Jude is great guy, struggling after tragedy he feels guilty about, and tries to atone by living on the streets and helping others in need. Nothing seems to help until he meets Faith and Father James who runs the homeless shelter.
The only person to pierce his darkness is Faith a reporter who volunteers at the shelter.
Faith just sees a man in pain, not a bum who lives on the street. They become friends, Faith the only woman to interest him in five years. One night after work Faith is attacked and nearly raped fortunately Jude stops the rapist and gets Faith to the hospital in time. It makes them both realise what they feel for each other.
Alas the road to true love is paved with obstacles. This is a heartwarming and at times heartbreaking read. This book actually blew me away, and I admit tears were shed when I got to the end.

UNLOCKING SHADOWS by Kennedy Layne is available now! Read a sneak peek below and pick up this next installment in a gripping romantic suspense series – you don’t want to miss it!

About UNLOCKING SHADOWS

Gwen Kendall spent ten years in the Navy and used the last four to create a life for herself she could be proud of away from the confines of her overprotective family. Being the only woman in the Kendall clan tended to be a bit overwhelming at times.

Chad Schaeffer had been hired on to help restore an old farmhouse for one of the returning Kendall siblings. He’d heard about the trouble the family had encountered and honestly didn’t want to go anywhere near their properties. He had a change of heart when he saw the most recently returned Kendall sibling stepping out of her car with a key in her hand.

Gwen had waited a very long time to have a place to call her own, just as she had waited for the right man to share her life. One night of seduction convinces her she’s found both, but someone wants to take it all away. It’s been said that old houses retain a piece of each person who has lived there, but she never counted on the dark shadows wanting a piece of her.

REVIEW:

In this exciting instalment of the Keys to Love Series as we are getting closer to the killer. This time its super-efficient Gwen Kendall that comes home to Bythe Lake, and gets the keys to her homestead.
The difference with Gwen is that she left the Navy four .years previously, and has a successful business in the city which she is now opening her in Blythe Lake now she is home.
Now her brother Noah is in construction, they have been using Chad Schaeffer to work on Gwen’s new house. Immediately the attraction is there, Gwen can’t believe how Chad is changed from the skinny teenager she remembers.
The FBI has taken over the investigation, after 15 bodies of young women were found in the lake. There is a lot going on in the book in every way. I still don’t know who the killer is, and the residents of Blythe Lake are coming to the conclusion that it someone they trust or maybe a friend.

Time is running out for the killer, as the FBI swarm the tiny community, you can’t miss Gwen finding her soul mate in an unlikely place. I thoroughly enjoy visiting Blythe Lake and catching up with the Kendalls.

Read an excerpt from UNLOCKING SHADOWS now:

Gwen Kendall sure as hell didn’t belong in Blyth Lake.

Shiny black hair that resembled the luminous color of a raven was flawlessly cut to frame her sculpted face. Her porcelain skin surpassed the most beautiful porcelain doll, while her full lips were smoothly covered with red lipstick that basically begged to be worn off. She also had a figure that rivaled that of any obsolete hourglass.

Gus and Noah’s abrupt manifestation by Gwen’s side was a wakeup call, and Chad had to clear his throat so that he could call out a greeting. That last thing he needed to do was act like an imbecile in front of Gwen while Noah and their father looked on.

He was a grown ass adult, but even he agreed the word ass should be emphasized considering his reaction.

One would think he’d never seen a beautiful woman before.

Chad discreetly rubbed his eyes as he leaned against the white pillar of the wraparound porch that had been painted to draw in buyers, though that time was well over a few years ago. The previous owners only had so much discretionary income to put into the house, so they had chosen mostly surface elements to polish the curb appeal, as they called it. Which was a great reminder that the external shell didn’t always represent what was on the inside. For all he knew, Gwen’s time away had stolen her shy demeanorand she was hell on heels— not that she was wearing heels out here today.

“Chad, it’s been a long time.”

He was so fucked.

Gwen smiled brightly as she looked up at him from the sidewalk, her melodic voice like honey being slowly dripped down his skin. Fortunately, she waited until she’d taken the two steps to be by his side to hold out her arm in greeting. He now had a better rein on his responses and didn’t even let on that the faint scent of vanilla enveloped him as her fingers ever so slowly closed around his.

“It’s good to see you back, Gwen.”

Chad was grateful for an excuse to release her hand, extending his arm to Gus. The older man was friends with Miles and had been for years. It was good that there didn’t seem to be any animosity between the two regarding Clay’s recent stupidity. Their families were now too connected and entwined for there to be any residual hostility… or so Chad kept telling himself that on a daily basis.

“Are you here by yourself?”

Gwen’s question threw him a bit, but he caught himself before showing his surprise. He didn’t miss Noah’s wince, though. There had apparently been a conversation about Clayton’s recent lapse in judgement, and of course, Wes and Chad were guilty just by association. It didn’t matter that their older brother made his own choices.

Gwen had clearly made up her mind about the Schaeffer men.

If that’s how she wanted to play it, then that was fine by him.

“Yes,” Chad replied, letting her know in no uncertain terms by his steel tone that he was capable of keeping this professional moving forward from this point. “I was going to be the one handling your project, for the most part. If you’d prefer someone else heading up the renovations, I’m sure Noah can make a good recommendation.”

Gwen Kendall was the prime example of how one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. He should have known better, too. Well, he got her message across loud and clear.

Chad would do them both a favor and stay far away from wherever she showed her pretty face in town.

About the Keys to Love Series

Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgivable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.
