About ARRANGE ME

My name is Courtney Jane Salinger…
and I’m sick of games.
Sick of the Friday night bar-scene-cum-meat-market.
Sick of the boy-girl, man-woman, mars-venus, flirtation-without-expectation, game-playing nonsense.
Sick of awful dates and one-night stands, booty calls and guys who don’t call back, mixed messages or NO messages and—and—and…I’m sick of all of it.
I’m done.
I just can’t do it anymore.
It’s too hard, and worse: little by little, it’s making me hard.
It’s breaking my heart.
What DO I want?
That’s easy.
I want a house in suburbia with a white picket fence.
I want babies to buckle into a minivan.
But most of all, I want to be married.
I want a husband.
So I’ve made an important decision: I’m making my escape from the dating world and the single life.
I’ve filled out my application on ArrangeMe.com and I’m putting my fate into the hands of experts.
Is it a little scary?
Sure.
I mean, I have no idea who I’ll end up with. After all, I’m planning to marry a complete stranger.
But between you and me?
I can’t wait.
Being arranged can’t possibly be worse than being single.
Can it?

ARRANGE ME THE GIRLS

♥♥REVIEW:♥♥

Arrange Me is an unusual romance, but a beautifully written one. Courtney a 28 year old New Yorker is tired of dating the never-ending disappointments, and the whole meat market. While at Tidewaters with her friend Dina who enjoys the hook-ups etc, Courtney talks to the barman Josh, and bemoans her situation and tells him she wants to get married and how unhappy she is.


So after watching an advert on the television for ArrangeMe.com she decides to go for it, and let the experts to match her with her future husband.
This is premise of the book and there is quite a lot going on. We wait with Courtney while she finds out who husband is, and that happens at the altar.


This Katy at her best drawing into story so much I couldn’t put it down as we watch everyone around Courtney who are appalled at her choice. So you must read the book to find out who stands alter waiting for her. One reminder this book one of a duo, but don’t worry this a hot sexy and beautiful romance.

Audiobook Review Tour: SALVAGE RAT Written by LARRY.N. MARTIN, Narrated by JEFFREY KAFER

Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer

Length: 8 hours 56 minutes

Publisher: Tantor Audio

Released: Sep. 9, 2018

Genre: Military Science Fiction

Star Force pilot and hero Wyatt McCoy left his medals and career behind after the Rim Wars, disillusioned and bitter when he learns the truths behind the conflict. He takes his converted gunship, the Nellie B, and heads to the Near Fringe, salvaging derelict ships and abandoned stations and mining colonies.

Dr. Beth Parker is a space archaeologist, documenting the history of planetary expansion and colonization for Kalok Enterprises and the Interplanetary Mining Guild. A piece of alien technology embeds itself in Beth’s arm, giving her the ability to see the energy impressions of long-ago people and events. When Beth uncovers proof of genocide that could bring down the big mining companies, she’s the target of assassins.

Wyatt makes a split-second decision to intervene, launching them both into a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game with some of the most powerful organizations in the system. They can prove Kalok and Interplan killed millions – but can they live long enough to tell their story?

I do enjoy my sci-fi so this book was very entertaining when Wyatt ex-military Salvage Rat lands on a planet which has top salvage. While there he spots a young women being shot at so he decides to help Beth a Space Archaeologist getaway.

So begins a partnership which leads them straight into the middle of rebellion as the more they salvage the evidence they find of mass cover ups.

Where whole colonies have been destroyed. This is told from Wyatt’s point of view the narrator has a great voice that kept me on the ship with him. A Great piece of Science Fiction, one I would enjoy again.

Profile of Wyatt McCoy, protagonist of Salvage Rat

Wyatt William McCoy

Height 6’2”

Weight 190 lbs

Muscled athletic build / gymnast build

Dark brown hair

Dark brown eyes

Medium skin tone

Age 32

Wyatt was born on Ceristan Station, an oribiting military base for Star Force. His mother Adrianna Marie Alfonsi, was a Vipor pilot for Star Force and moved to piloting military shuttles for officers when well into her pregnancy with Wyatt. His father was Brodie Callum McCoy, a gunship pilot for Star Force. Wyatt grew up on Ceristan, spending much of his time in the youth home with other military children, while his parents were on assignment. He grew up being groomed for Star Force and never considered another path. As he would later tell others, “piloting is in my blood.”

Wyatt prefers reality in both his food and his experiences. In a world where virtual reality, synthetics, and artificial constructs are prevalent, Wyatt wants to plant his feet on solid ground and experience nature with all of her unpredictability. He’d rather have tasteless food that was harvested than a gourmet meal out of a food synthesizer.

Wyatt’s favorite pastime is tinkering and improving the Nellie B. To him, she’s more than a ship and has saved him countless times. Some might consider it an obsession but when you’re in the Dark and there’s no one for light years, your ship is everything.

Q&A with LARRY N. MARTIN, Author of Salvage Rat

  • Were there any real-life inspirations behind your writing?
    • When working on a story, whether my own, one I’m co-authoring, or even those I’m working on behind the scenes, I try to immerse myself in the world with what I view and read. I am a visual person and having a picture of characters, the world, and its elements help me tell the story. For Salvage Rat, I switched my pleasure reading to science fiction and turned to every “space” movie I could find on streaming. For this book, it included The Expanse, Dark Matter, Altered Carbon and books by David Weber, Dan Simmons, and David Drake. A single image or situation will sometimes take hold, and my mind will start writing an entire story based on “what if?”
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What to do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • I can’t afford burn-out or writer’s block. My partner and I are full-time writers and make our living from books. Regardless of whose name is on the cover, we work on everything together so there are often several works in queue. That helps when you get stuck because often the boredom or block comes from not having the story clear in your mind. I’ll switch to another book, often in a different genre, until the pieces fall back into place and I can continue. The variety of working on multiple projects also helps because not all projects are in the same stage and it takes a different mindset to revise, edit, format, or promote than it does to write.
  • If you had the power to time travel, would you use it? If yes, when and where would you go?
    • Most definitely. While I enjoy works of fantasy, I know enough history to know that it wasn’t nearly as mystical or magical as it is portrayed in the books and that the middle ages didn’t smell so good. I’d opt for going forward in time to the major cities of the world to see what science and technology had been developed. I love science fiction and would love to see how things have evolved; that is if we haven’t messed up too badly.
  • If this title were being made into a TV series or movie, who would you cast to play the primary roles?
    • This was a much tougher question than I thought it would be. I settled on Steven Strait (from The Expanse) to play Wyatt. Maybe bulk him up a little, but the overall presence and feel he lends is perfect. For Beth, I’d cast Olivia Wilde. She has the look and the strong personality that lends itself to the character. Beth isn’t a follower and while not a soldier in the traditional sense, she can hold her own.
      12. What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
      To each, their own and we can agree to disagree. I grew up with a mother who read to me every night and hearing a book holds a special place in my heart. We did the same with our own children, carrying on the tradition. I enjoy being able to close my eyes and lose myself in the story (though not when driving). Hearing a book versus reading it is not better or worse, just different. Audio also is a great alternative for situations when you couldn’t otherwise read. I no longer have to commute to work, but when I was spending hours on the road each day, audio books made it so much better. I still regularly listen to the BBC version of The Lord of the Rings on long car trips.
  • What gets you out of a writing slump? What about a reading slump?
    • Somewhat like writer’s block, you can’t afford to not keep at it. Often just working on another project for a short while will help. I’ve found a similar approach to reading slumps. I’ve now moved mostly to eReader and so have several in-process books at any given time. The slump is usually because what I’m reading doesn’t fit with my mood and switching from one book or genre to another is all it takes.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • To an extent, I believe it depends on the story you are trying to tell. Hopefully, when you are starting out, you know if you have a single story or a larger arc that will require more books. Another variable is what your publisher wants from you. Even if you are writing a series, I believe you owe it to the reader to give them a complete story within each book and not leave them hanging. Most readers understand the serialized approach, having grown up with television. It gives you the benefit of pulling them into your world and hopefully getting them to come back for the next book. If it’s stand-alone, they may be interested in your future works, but aren’t as invested.
  • Have any of your characters ever appeared in your dreams?
    • Not in interactions with me. However, I have dreamed about “their” story and what should happen next as if I were one of the characters. I attribute it to my brain working out the story while I sleep. Even if I don’t always remember the details, I often find that issues or challenges work themselves out if I sleep on it.
  • What bits of advice would you give to aspiring authors?
    • Keep writing. Don’t try to get it “right” or “perfect,” as you go just get it all down and then come back later to fix. It’s much easier to revise and tweak a book once you’ve got words down. It doesn’t matter how much you end up throwing away or deleting, you’ll still find yourself moving forward, and none of it was wasted. The words you didn’t like will often inspire better ones to replace them.
  • What’s next for you?
    • Lots more books. In addition to the sequel to Salvage Rat, several co-authored works are coming: the second in the Iron & Blood: Jake Desmet Adventures as well as a new urban paranormal fantasy series – the Joe Mack Cauldron books – based on the legend of Joe Magarac.

ARC Review: ALL WE WERE ( Ex-Factor Duet Book 1 ) by USA Today Bestselling Authors ELIZABETH GRACE & MICHELLE LYNN! @InkslingerPR

All We Were AMAZON

Will I ever stop hurting the one person who’s never hurt me?

I’ve done things I can never undo.

No matter how much I wish I could, sometimes the wounds I inflict are too deep, too catastrophic, too septic to heal.

As I look into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved I know I’ve gone too far. I’ve finally crossed the line.

Even if he knew my reason for doing this, he’d never forgive me.

He always puts my needs before his own.

Now it’s my turn to protect him.

None of that matters though because the betrayal and disgust in his eyes comes from deep within his soul. There’s no coming back from this.

He will forever be tormented by what he’s seen, and he will never forgive me.

The last fragment of my heart to hold out hope that we’d share a future, withers anddies.

REVIEW:

Wow this book as blown me away, the authors haven’t pulled any punches. The story is about Jimmy a rising Film star and Lilah a model with a drug and alcohol addiction and how it affects their lives.
When you have a loved one as an addict, it not just the addict that’s effected. This is a no holes bared book as we follow their lives and love. Is Love always enough? This is a dual point of view, so we follow both sides and helps to feel invested in the characters. The is read into night book as I couldn’t put it down.
This is a duet so we finish on a cliffhanger

gold-star4gold-star4gold-star4gold-star4

All We Are AMAZON

Coming face-to-face with my past changes EVERYTHING.

I’m at the top of my game. All my struggles have finally paid off. Life should be great.

I mean, life is great.

Except for the fact that I can’t stop thinking of her. The woman who mangled my heart into a bloody pulp and never looked back.

If I could free myself of our shared memories, my future would be golden.

There’s only one way to move on—I have to confront the past, so I can move into the next chapter of my life in peace. Which means confronting her for the final time.

I had no idea that knocking on her door that day would turn my life upside down.

ARC Review: LOST AND FOUND ( Masters & Mercenaries, THE FORGOTTEN Book 2) by New York Times Bestselling Author LEXI BLAKE! @authorlexiblake @InkslingerPR

LostAndFound eBook high res

BLURB:

Owen Shaw and his “brothers” lost everything, their entire existence erased. Science had robbed he and all the Lost Boys of their memories and their past, but not their future. Hunted by every intelligence agency in the world, they are focused on two goals: find a cure for what was done to them and ensure that the technology that ruined their lives doesn’t get out into the world. Rebecca Walsh might be the key to achieving both. Owen has been studying her closely, living in her building, and he cannot resolve how such a beautiful, giving woman could have helped design the evil process that destroyed his past.

Dr. Rebecca Walsh has dedicated her life to researching the secrets of the mind. Her atmospheric rise in her field was fueled by the horror of watching her mother’s agonizing journey into madness at the hands of a disease with no cure. She vowed to never rest until she finds it. But obsession takes a heavy toll, and when Owen moves into her building she realizes how much of her life she has missed out on. Owen opens her eyes to a whole new world, filled with joy, laughter, and possibly love.

Owen and Rebecca grow closer, unraveling more about each other and the mysteries surrounding her connection to Hope McDonald. As the sinister forces working against the Lost Boys descend on Toronto, secrets long buried are uncovered that could shatter the bonds holding the Lost Boys together and cost Rebecca her life.

EXCERPT:

“Becca.” Owen’s voice was low. “Concentrate on me, on our conversation. You’ve done incredibly well. You’ve been able to hold it off, but this has gone on far longer than you ever should have been expected to handle it. This elevator is tight. I feel it, too, but we can hold off the anxiety together.”

She doubted very much the man in front of her was anxious. He looked solid, like the kind of man who took whatever came his way and simply dealt with it. He wouldn’t have needed two freaking years to figure out what he wanted. He would have signed his divorce papers and moved on, not hiding in his work.

It struck her forcibly that she might never have met a man like Owen Shaw. Her childhood had been fairly sheltered. She’d constantly been surrounded by intellectuals, men and women who were far more concerned with their work than anything else.

The ground beneath her shifted and the elevator dropped what felt like ten feet, but she knew in her head it was mere inches. Her heart rate tripled, and she grabbed on to the closest thing she could—him.

His arms went around her, holding her up, and she heard it. He was so tall that her head naturally rested on his chest, and she could hear his heart beating in rapid time.

He was nervous.

The phone rang and Owen cursed, reaching out to grab it. The shaft was so small, he didn’t have to let her go to grasp it.

“What the bloody hell is happening, Colin?”

She could hear his voice over the line. “Sorry. So sorry. We had to lower the shaft the tiniest bit. I should have warned you. It’s not going to fall. Just needed to reposition to get to the problem. Not long now. Another half an hour or so and I’ll have you right out of there.”

“If you do that again, do you know what I’m going to do to you, Colin?”

There was a pause over the line and she could practically hear Colin’s gulp. “Write my father a tersely worded letter of complaint?”

“No, I’m going to pull your heart out through your throat and then I’ll shove it back up your arse.”

“You sound very much like Liam Neeson in that movie.”

“Liam Neeson is Irish. I’m a Scot. I assure you what I’ll do to you will make you run into Liam Neeson’s arms and beg him to save you.” He reached back and hung up the phone with a resounding clang.

His arm went back around her. “It’s going to be all right. They’ll move faster now. So you’ve taken a sabbatical from men.”

She breathed him in, loving how he smelled. Were men supposed to smell so good?

She could feel herself relax as he held her. She’d known him for three hours. She shouldn’t let him hold her like this.

And why the fuck not? Because it wasn’t smart? Because he might think she wanted something she shouldn’t?

She was human. Why shouldn’t she want him? Because society told her that good girls didn’t make out with guys they’d just met in an elevator?

Society sucked, and she wasn’t a good girl. When her husband had tried to put his name on her work, she’d told him to fuck off and write his own paper. When he’d cheated on her, she’d walked away.

She was single.

God, was he single?

She stepped back.

“What’s wrong?” Owen asked.

“Do you have a girlfriend?”

His lips curled up in the sweetest grin, as though he knew exactly why she was asking that question. “No, love. I don’t have a girlfriend and I don’t have a wife.”

He was single. She was single.

The moment lengthened between them.

He stepped back. “I’m sorry. I’m coming on way too strong.”

He wasn’t. He’d been gentlemanly, friendly. Up until the last couple of moments, he hadn’t put a hand on her or leered. She could feel his attraction. It was there in the warm way he looked at her, in the set of his shoulders, relaxed earlier and tense now that he’d touched her. He was thinking about the same thing she was.

“I’m very nervous, Owen. My logical mind knows that it’s far more likely for me to die getting hit by lightning than in an elevator, even one that’s stuck.” Unfortunately, her logical mind was slowly losing control of her dumbass lizard brain.

“Will talking help?” Owen asked. “Because I’m willing to do that. Or whatever you need to take your mind off things.”

There was a wealth of promise in those words. Dirty and sweet at the same time. They’d shared her wine, passing it back and forth between them, her lips touching the same place his had been moments before. When she’d drank after him, she’d thought about kissing him.

It had been too long. Two years was way too long to go without sex.

They had a half an hour or so. At least that’s what Colin—who might be murdered soon by Owen Shaw—said. She even thought his name was sexy.

What exactly would it hurt if she did kiss him? If she touched him and let him touch her? Hell, what would it hurt if she fucked him? They were both single, both a little needy. They had some time to kill. They’d done everything else.

“I would like to kiss you.” If he didn’t want her to, he could say no and they could find something else to do. She wasn’t going to be embarrassed because some guy didn’t want her. Some stunningly gorgeous guy. Some really funny, sexy guy. After all, she wouldn’t see him after this. She’d never seen him before. He’d told her he was moving in, but she went into work early and came home late. He was a bodyguard, so he likely worked odd hours and traveled a lot.

He was safe. She could open that door, enjoy herself, and then close it again. Owen Shaw could be her first really good memory in a long time, the start of many because it was time to get serious about finding some joy and balance in her life.

But only if he wanted some joy, too.

He moved back, placing his back against the elevator wall, the sweetest smile lighting up his face. “You have no idea how much I want you to kiss me. I’m right here, love. Do your worst.”

He was letting her make the first move. And probably the second. And the third. He was obviously a careful man. It would be easier if he took over, but he was right. This needed to be her choice, and she had to make the move.

She’d been the girl who’d told her parents at the age of five that kindergarten was boring and she wanted to move through the grades until she found something challenging. When they’d told her they wanted her to slow down and enjoy her childhood, she’d gone on strike until the teachers at her school begged her parents to let them move her up.

She was the girl who’d put it all on hold to take care of her mother, too.

She wasn’t the girl who didn’t take what she wanted, and she wanted Owen Shaw.

“It’s been a long time since I did this.” But her body was already heating up. Her body remembered. Her marriage might have sucked, but the sex had been fairly good. It had been the reason she’d married him. She’d gotten used to regular, good sex.

She’d get used to it again, just on her terms this time.

“Somehow, I think you’ll remember,” he said. “You play all you like. Stop when you want to.”

She’d been right about him. He was a careful man. “And if I don’t want to stop?”

“Then you should be happy I’m a man who believes in being prepared.”

REVIEW:

Well Lexi Blake has done it again, another all-nighter because I couldn’t put the book down it down.
We have a team of men used in mind control experiments and now they have no memory of their previous lives. The doctor and team in charge are mostly dead. When they discover Dr McDonald sent a package to Dr Rebecca Walsh. They know the baddies will after her.

So the lost boys, who are trained operatives move
into position to discover what Dr Walsh knows about the research, and to try and find what Dr MacDonald’s research. Only on the first day Owen gets stuck in the lift with Rebecca. When neither can control themselves.

The chemistry is off the charts, and his cover was a gay man married to the love of his life is blown straight away. This is a great series every story stands on it’s own, but to understand the players and background you need to read in order. I love this series, and this only the second book so you have read one other and your away.
So with have lots of action, baddies, creeps and sexy hunks with plenty of love and sex going round

About MY FAVORITE COWBOY:

New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant rounds up the hottest cowboys in Texas in her latest novel of no-holds-barred passion.

Audrey Martinez is a veterinarian who has devoted her whole life to the care and protection of horses—even if doing so leaves her little time for meeting a man. Who would have thought that a strange case of criminal horseplay would lead her to falling deeply, wildly in love? If only the man who makes her heart race faster than a wild mustang would let his guard down, that is. . .

Caleb Harper is no ordinary cowboy. Sure, he wears his hat, boots, and jeans like a second skin, and displays an easygoing charm that comes from years of working on the ranch. But with his military background, and Army buddies at his side, he is tried-and-true Texas tough. Audrey knows she can trust a man like Caleb to help her save horses. But can Caleb trust himself to resist his attraction to Audrey—or will the sparks of their desire end up getting them burned?

REVIEW:


This the first contemporary I’ve read of Donna Grant, as I’m great fan of the Dragon Kings. So I love Cowboys and I thought I can’t lose.
Well I did not lose, I definitely won, I loved it. I have to say this is more a Romance with a heavy dose of suspense.
Someone’s been poisoning the Horses at the Auction house. So David the owner calls in his equine vet, and Audrey the vet is trying to find out what the poison is. David asks for help from another Ranch and along comes to help, and the single hunky Cowboy takes a fierce fancy to the best Equine Vet in the area. That sets the scene, and when things heat up it’s not just the situation. Caleb never thought he would fall in love, that is until he met Audrey. Caleb is the youngest of three siblings, and the first two books in the series feature his siblings.
This has all, I love it and now I want to read the others in the series. This can be read as a complete standalone. I just nosy and what to know whats the story of the other characters from other books. I always been nosey, it’s something that came about honestly.

Between a fated dance at the Ryder mansion…a life-changing walk through a hedgerow maze…and a massive battle with none other than the King of Hell…Lincoln realizes that he wants to share his life with Myla Lewis, the part-demon girl who has captured his heart. However, an evil thrax noble—the powerful Earl of Acca—is prepared to do anything to stop Lincoln and Myla from having a future.

But Lincoln won’t give up on his Myla. Ever.

To fight Aldred, Lincoln works to create a different kind of marriage—an Alliance of the lesser thrax houses against Acca. Sadly, just as Lincoln starts to makes some progress, the nobles who’ve joined his Alliance begin to vanish. Is Aldred behind the disappearances, or is someone else vying for power? When Lincoln discovers the truth, it upends his entire world, threatening his future with Myla in ways no one could ever have imagined.

“I absolutely love Christina Bauer’s style, full of action, intense scenes, and characters that will test one’s imaginations to the max!” – Tome Tender Book Blog

REVIEW:

Well I don’t know what to say , except Christina has done it again made fall in love with Lincoln again. It was great seeing Myla through Lincoln’s point of view. It made you realise how he could not be completely dazzled by Myla, when you know what his days look like.
So even though some the story was familiar from Angelbound, most of the time it felt like a completely different story. I think Christine redeemed Lincoln completely, and you couldn’t help admire him. Myla as always is her usual snarky self and that’s why we all are addicted to reading about her.
Lincoln definitely has his adventures, most of I really felt for Lincoln when you read about his life without Myla. A Great addiction to the Angelbound family.

I LOVE Jami’s sports romances, and wasn’t quite sure what I was expecting. This is the Gone Missing Detective Agency with a great romance, with  a lot of suspense thrown in to make it more interesting. What a character Bronson is. Working on a missing person’s case Bronson tries to persuade the daughter of what he believes  a crooked crime family. Rebecca, a society woman to help him with information.
It’s not until Rebecca needs help that she approaches Bronson. Total opposites with nothing in common, to keep her safe that decide to a fake marriage so they can stay in same house.
This is so entertaining watching Rebecca and Bronson being so careful around each, we know what usually happens with fake marriages. This is one stop read because I couldn’t put it down.To find out what happens Grap this brand new book and hopefully series.

REVIEW

I’ve been looking forward to Dylan and Audrey’s story. When they first meet Dylan bowled over by Audrey confidence and how outspoken she is. At first is like watching the foreplay that was mostly verbal, but was never the less scorching hot. It was foreplay of the mind which Laurelin does so well. Audrey is Sabrina Lind’s younger sister, we met her in Donovan and Sabrina duet.
This was an introduction to Dylan’s life and his fierce attraction to Audrey Lind a young women who is young enough to be his daughter. I don’t know how Laurelin Paige does it creating these hot tortured men, and super confident women who give them a run there money. This has really whet my appetite for hot hunky tortured men. While I’m waiting for Sweet Fate I’m going to read Donovan’s again.

gold-star4gold-star4gold-star4gold-star4

Blurb:

British ad exec Dylan Locke isn’t looking for love. He isn’t looking for fate. He’s definitely not looking for Audrey Lind. She’s pretty, far too young, and overly romantic–in short, exhausting.

But when the girl, young enough to be his daughter, literally lands in his lap and asks for his expertise, he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t interested. In her body, in her innocence, in her philosophy.

In the kind of kismet that starts with kisses.

But Audrey isn’t looking for love either–she’s looking for lessons, and she’s certain Dylan knows everything she needs to learn.

If he agrees to play the teacher can he keep his heart?

Of course he can.

Then again, he might be lying.

Excerpt:

Too bad she was that kind of girl. The kind of girl who wanted a man to love her before she lifted her skirt.

God, she was young. Younger than whatever ridiculous young age she actually was.

I’d sworn off love years ago, but not sex. Never sex. And Audrey Lind was all sorts of temptation, the kind I knew better to stay away from. She was too romantic. She was too American. She was too young. Much too young. I was definitely old enough to be her father. Probably.

Definitely.

I didn’t want to think about that.

“I’m pretty sure I can convince you kismet exists too, if you’ll just do one thing.”

“What’s that?”

“Kiss me.”

I was alone. I would always be alone.

I was a girl who felt things.

Dylan was polite, but he wasn’t nice.

I thought she’d be less dangerous in the sunlight.

I was wrong.

She was sex on heels, and I was a goner.

Audrey Lind: Part wildling, part devil, part innocent, all contradiction.

I wanted to kiss her again. Because she had perfect plump lips. Because she tasted like honey. Because she was warm and the night was cold, and I’d been in the dark for so long.

Colliding into her had been like crashing into sunshine. She made me feel warm in places that had been cold for oh, so long.

“I can’t decide if I need to shelter you, or if I should show you off.”

I stretched her and filled her and punished her pussy for being so perfect, so tight, so inexperienced

I fucked her like I’d paid for the hour.

“I’ve never watched anyone watch me like you’re watching me now.”

About the Author:

With over 2.4 million books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. Her international success started with her very first series, the Fixed Trilogy, which, alone, has sold over 1 million copies, and earned her the coveted #1 spot on Amazon’s bestseller list in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and Australia, simultaneously. This title also was named in People magazine as one of the top 10 most downloaded books of 2014. She’s also been #1 overall books at the Apple Book Store with more than one title in more than one country. She’s published both independently and with MacMillan’s St. Martin’s Press and Griffin imprints as well as many other publishers around the world including Harper Collins in Germany and Hachette/Little Brown in the U.K. With her edgy, trope-flipped stories of smart women and strong men, she’s managed to secure herself among today’s romance royalty.

Paige has a Bachelor’s degree in Musical Theater and a Masters of Business Administration with a Marketing emphasis, and she credits her writing success to what she learned from both programs, though she’s also an avid learner, constantly trying to challenge her mind with new and exciting ideas and concepts. While she loves psychological thrillers and witty philosophical books and entertainment, she is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.

BLURB:

From best selling author R.C. Stephens comes a steamy, suspenseful new standalone romance about a British alpha hero and the one woman he can’t seem to forget.

Eleven years together and today I find out . . .

I don’t know the first thing about the man I’m sleeping beside every night.

My marriage is built on a bed of lies . . . Nothing is real.

Each day I’m barely surviving, falling deeper into despair and loneliness.

Meeting Hayes Taylor is not in my plan.
Younger, beautiful and broken—just like me. I feel a connection with him I’ve never experienced before. But I am a married woman, and cheating isn’t in my DNA. I ignore the sexual tension between us and push him away.

And like most women, I stay in my marriage for my kids.

But my husband not only manipulates, he keeps secrets I’m not prepared for. Secrets that may destroy me . . .

This is not only my fight song, this is my journey to discover love.

Fraud is for a mature audience only. It is a full length standalone with a sexy alpha hero. There is no cheating and a guaranteed HEA that will leave you swooning.

REVIEW:

I have read quite a few books written by this author and I’ve loved everyone. In this one was more gritty, and a strong intelligent women is made to almost apologise for asking her husband to be supportive and take responsibility for anything in her marriage. Luckily Natalia had good friends and family. Natalia meets Hayes when he was saying with his cousin and his wife Immy. Hayes had left the Royal Navy, and was going back to Uni because he wanted to be a doctor who specialises in Therapy for ex- service or anyone with trauma.
I digress this book hooked me and kept me there, I kept waiting for Natalia to wise up and leave her husband who was manipulated and used the children and her fears against her.
This was an unusual book and I am glad I read it. This so much more than you realise. A Romantic suspense feel definitely. We follow for years and know there is no hope for the marriage.

About R.C. Stephens:

As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending.

She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure!

After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her tenth book and can’t seem to stop the stories running through her mind. Visit R.C. on her Facebook page to find out what’s new in her life and what releases she has coming up.

New review graphic blog_review

In this episode we have Mr Dos, who Anthea meets in her second month long stop around Australia. So as I was saying this time she is sent to the farming community and the country folk.

In this episode Anthea was out of her depth completely, but she embraced the life staying on a farm. It didn’t help when she met Mr Country Boy.
Lets put this way Mr Dos was so much more fun and in depth than Mr Ono and after enjoying this one so much.

I ‘m looking forward to Mr Tres and next month’s exciting article. A nice bite size read that entertains and light enough to read before bed or in your lunch break
