synopsis

What happens when young hot university rocker meets beautiful slightly older professor?

After a tragic accident that plays on an endless loop in her mind, wild child Kate Jolie died inside. She now functions only through her rigid, ironclad routine, which keeps her mind and soul in check – balancing her in a dangerously precarious position between life and death.

Rocker and Master’s student Sam North knows no limits and seeks out every challenge to conquer and defy. With his cocky grin, piercings, colorful tattoos, undress-you bedroom eyes and magnetic sex appeal, he has no trouble finding women to warm his bed. When he spies his new professor, the gorgeous Ms. Jolie, she’s just another summit he wants to climb in order to reach its peak. But as he begins to catch glimpses of her soul, she becomes his Everest.

Kate Jolie is the only woman who wants nothing to do with Sam North – and the only woman he can’t do without.

 

 

review

~~ 5 Sam North Stars ~~

This is the first book by Allie Juliette Mousseau that I have read, but it won’t be the last. I have to say that I normally don’t like reading a book that is part of a series, without reading the prior books first, but in this case I didn’t have a problem with it because it is truly a standalone novel. Yes there are reoccurring characters from the other books, but Allie did a fantastic job filling in the blanks, so I never felt lost or confused.

Finding Now is Book 3 in her True North Series. This series is based off the North Siblings and their quest to find love. This one was about Sam North and Kate Jolie. This was a fun, sweet and sexy read. I was laughing at times, smiling most of the time and even shed a tear or two towards the end of the book. What I really found refreshing in this book was that even though it was NA book, we didn’t see some of the other stuff that generally accompanies this genre. There is NO Cheating, NO love triangle and overall NO stupidity on the parts of the characters, but it wasn’t an insta love connection either and wasn’t to over the top in cheesiness. I thought the flow and pace of the story were spot on. Nothing dragged but she also didn’t rush aspects of the story. I also LOVED the ending of this book, although I would’ve liked an epilogue to just follow up with Sam and Kate. Not a deal breaker though…I still thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Sam and Kate are the main characters of this story. Sam is a 22 yr old guy who is having trouble deciding what to do with his life. He actually is really good at everything he puts his mind to. He is a Rockstar musician, also loves to race cars and is in school getting his masters degree. His true love is Music though, but he just doesn’t know if he can commit to going on the road and giving up the other 2 things he enjoys as well. Kate is a 26 yr old woman who is a professor, but is also a shell of a girl. She had a tragic accident happen to her 6 years ago and she has never been able to get over it….until she encounters Sam. After they meet, Sam takes Kate on a journey to finding herself again and letting herself open up to love and being happy again. I loved the relationship between these two. Both helped each other in ways they didn’t know were possible. Sam will definitely melt your heart and panties ;) I absolutely fell in love with him and because of that I am going to read the first two books in this series, so I can meet the other men in this family.

I would for sure recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the rockstar romance, but that is so much more then just the rock and roll love story. If you are looking for a story with heart, laughs, and some sexy times, and that has characters that feel real and have depth, then I would say you should read this book. I believe Sam North should be on everyone book boyfriend list!!!

excerpt

Kate’s POV

One of my favorite parts about our new friendship was the texting. Usually when I came home from Kells to the silence of my apartment, I dreaded being alone with my thoughts, but now like clockwork Sam texted me every night. Thursday night was no exception.
Sam: Miss me yet?
If I had to admit it, yes, I missed him very much already and it had only been about 30 minutes since he’d left.
Me: **eye roll**
Sam: You’re a pretty little liar. But I forgive you. Get some sleep tonight. I have something special planned for this weekend that you’re going to love!
Something special? My heart thumped.
Me: I’m in bed but I can’t get any sleep with my phone beeping with your messages.
Sam: You’re in bed?? What are you wearing?
I closed my eyes and smiled. The thought of telling him I was in a soft, lacy camisole top with a pair of boy shorts made sweet sensations stir in my belly.
Me: Be good.
Sam: Oh, I’m very good!
I bet he was.
Me: We both have class early.
Sam: Set the phone close to your pillow.
That was a new request.
Me: Why?
Sam: So I can sleep next to you.
A sensation like soda pop filled my veins with rising bubbles that seemed to start at my toes and rush to my head. I held the phone and rolled to my side as I settled the device on the side of my pillow.
Me: Done.
Sam: Good. Did you feel that small breeze against your skin? That was me imagining I was kissing you goodnight.
I imagined his voice saying those words, low and serious, and it made me close my eyes and catch my bottom lip between my teeth.

synopsis
At twenty-four, Clarinda James has lived a traumatic life. One of the last images she saw before losing her sight was that of her parents’ death. The nightmares of that time still haunt her every night.  Taken in at nineteen by her sister, Clary didn’t know there was going to be a price to pay, a price far greater than her blindness. It’s not until Blue walks into her life, she realises it’s possible to experience the joy of warmth. In her darkness, Blue will become her beacon, her guide. Little does she know that she’ll need to count on Blue more than she thought she would.
She has to…if she wants to stay alive.
Blue Skies is on the lookout for a woman. Always there to support his brothers, Talon and Griz, he’s not a stranger to the craziness of love or life. Nor is he a stranger to making it clear that comments surrounding his name are out of bounds. Despite the often effed-up situations his brothers find themselves in as a result of their women, he’s more than happy to settle down when he finds his missing piece.
After three weeks of seeing a gorgeous redhead in a café, he refuses to let the opportunity pass him by. Building a tentative relationship with Clary is no easy task; she’s damaged. It’s not until he discovers the truth behind her darkness that he willing lays claim to her. He is determined to protect her, no matter the cost. She is irrefutably his.

 

synopsis
“Because I have had my eyes on you for three damn Saturdays, waiting to catch your eye, waiting for you to get the courage to come talk to me, but you haven’t. So now, we do this my way.”
“Your way?” I asked on a whisper.
“Yeah, sugar,” he said softly, “my way.”
Licking my suddenly dry lips, I then said, “You sure are…”
“Cocky? Great with words? Smart? Handsome?”
Smiling, I shook my head. “I wouldn’t know. I can’t see,” I told him and removed my sunglasses, blinking in his direction.

He hissed, “Your eyes are damn beautiful like that.”

abouttheauthor

I was born in Brisbane, Australia. My step-dad was in the Army, which caused us to move around a lot. We finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. I am the youngest of four children and I can say that I was spoilt a bit. I drove my mum crazy when I refused to eat meat at a young age. Now I live with my husband and two children, and I find myself regretting all the troubles I put my parents through because my monsters are just as picky as I was.

I started writing in 2013 and self-published the first of the Hawks MC Club series Holding Out. The next to follow was something different, I wrote Senseless Attraction, a YA novel. Soon I was back to the Hawks series with number two Climbing Out. I have more to write in the series, but there will be also be more novels in the humorous erotica genre, like Left to Chance, which is out now.

synopsis

When Ryan Matthews meets Julia Abbott for the first time at Stanford University, he immediately knows she will change his life.  They have an instant, unbreakable connection that goes beyond partying and palpable attraction.  Although his intelligence and good looks land him any girl he wants, Ryan hesitates to cross that line with Julia because she quickly becomes the best friend he’s ever had.

 

Both secretly in love, Ryan and Julia are terrified to take the chance that could mean the loss of the very person they don’t want to lose.  As the bond between them grows stronger, they are both miserable as they are forced to watch as they each date other people.  But will Ryan’s all-consuming jealousy and Julia’s deeply broken heart torment them enough to make one or both walk away?

 

Join Ryan and Julia on the beginning of the journey that has made Kahlen Aymes’ Remembrance Trilogy an international bestselling favorite among her readers.  This book was written after The Trilogy was finished due to an abundance of reader requests for more of Ryan and Julia’s story.

 

And so…

excerpt

Excerpt from Before Ryan Was Mine, The Remembrance Trilogy, Prequel, Copyright 2014, Kahlen Aymes, All Rights Reserved.

 

My beer slipped from my fingers, and I scrambled to catch it but it was being lifted by another set of slender fingers without the blazing red nails.  By the time my eyes shifted up and focused, Julia was leisurely taking a drink from my bottle.   Her hooded green eyes appraised me, with my date almost on my lap.  I barely noticed Leah because my attention was on Julia, and then her eyes shifted twelve inches right, landing on Leah.  Julia hated beer, but still here she was, stamping her ownership with something as simple as a pull on my beer bottle.   She probably didn’t even know the effect it had on me at such a base level, but I fucking loved it.  Something tightened deep inside my chest, and my dick twitched inside my jeans.

“Ryan!  Are you gonna let her do that?”  Leah demanded indignantly, her eyes flashing haughtily up at Julia.

My lips raised in the slightest smirk.  Julia echoed it when her eyes locked with mine.

“Yeah, she… uh, she can do that,” I confirmed without emphasis.  Amusement at Julia’s confidence made me want to laugh out loud.  I felt fucking elated.

Leah huffed beside me and angrily flung herself back against the cushions of the couch, removing her leg from mine.  “Well, do you know her?”

“Yeah. Yeah, I know her.”  Boy, do I know her.

Julia wobbled a little, and I could see she’d had more to drink than she needed.  Still, she grinned at me, her arm bent at the elbow as she curled my beer close to her chest, not drinking, just holding it in place.  My instinct was to reach out or stand up to steady her.

Angrily, Leah pushed on my shoulder and spewed venom in Julia’s direction.  “Are you going to introduce us?  Is she your sister?”

Julia started to giggle.  “Pffft!  Do I look like his sister?”

“Then who are you?” my date demanded, her expression hard.  I watched the exchange, anxious to see what Julia would say.

“Oh, we’re ….”  She handed back my beer and walked behind me to sit on the top edge of the back of the couch and slid her hand over the shoulder Leah had shoved.  “Well, let’s see… we’re…  mmmm…”  Her words were nonchalant but her eyes widened, waiting for me to finish the sentence.  “What exactly are we, Ryan?”

“This is my best friend Julia.  Jules, this is Leah.”  I said the words carefully, but couldn’t tear my eyes from Julia’s face.  Her features were filled with laughter and devilry.

“His date,” Leah spat.

“Congratulations.”  Julia focused on Leah and wagged a finger in her direction.  She was clearly tipsy.  “You need a donut.”

A laugh burst from my chest because I couldn’t help myself.  You need a donut. I thought it was fucking hilarious, but Leah was clearly pissed.

“What did you say?”

“You seriously need a donut.”

Leah looked indignant and furious, but my shoulders were visibly shaking with laughter when Julia turned her attention to me. “Can I talk to you for a sec?”

“Excuse me,” I murmured to Leah then immediately rose to follow Julia a few feet away.  “Are you being careful?”

“Is it just a coincidence that you and Twiggy are here tonight?”

I swallowed at the accusation in her tone.  She was tipsy, but her eyes still burned into mine.  “Yeah.  I had no idea you were even going out, but I’m glad I’m here.  Who is that guy?”  I wanted to ask why she let him touch her in such a familiar way but clamped my jaw shut.

“He’s a guy.  Collin, I think?  No big deal.”  She shrugged nonchalantly, and her hand came to rest on the front of my shirt.  I should have been reassured as her deep green eyes looked up imploringly.  “Don’t worry, Ryan.”

It was all I could do not to cover her fingers with my own.  “I worry.”

“I know.”  She leaned in and wrapped her arms around my waist in a brief hug and the scent of her perfume engulfed me.  “I’m glad to see you.  I’ll call you tomorrow.”

~~5 Stars ~~

 

Before Ryan was Mine is the Prequel to Kahlen Aymes Remembrance Trilogy.  This can be read before or after reading that trilogy, but I have to say that I was extremely glad I read it after, because then I was already aware of how their story turned out.  The sexual tension in this novella is off the charts and would’ve drove me nuts not to know what happened between these two characters.

 

The Remembrance Trilogy is one of ALL TIME FAVORITE Series.  I absolutely LOVED Ryan and Julia and their love story.  So I was so happy to hear that Kahlen was writing their story of how they met and became best friends.  Like with her trilogy, the writing was seamless and effortless.  Kahlen has an amazing way of writing a story that sucks you in and you can’t help but fall in love with all the characters.  This is short novella, so it is a quick read, but still just as great as her full length novels.

 

In this prequel we get to see how Julia and Ryan met and became best friends.  I absolutely LOVED both characters when I read the trilogy and I have to say that my feelings are still just as strong after reading this novella.   Even though this prequel was a great addition to this series, I was pretty frustrated by the end of it.  I wanted to smack both Julia and Ryan and tell them to wake up!!!  I enjoyed how Kahlen wrote this story to cover the years they were in college, but nothing felt rushed and didn’t drag out either.  She gave us just enough to fully connect with the characters and see what we didn’t get to in the first book of the trilogy.

 

If you are a fan of Kahlen Aymes and her Remembrance Trilogy or are looking for that really sweet fairytale of a love story then you don’t want to miss this book and all the others in the series.  Ryan and Julia will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart and I am sad to see their story come to an end :(  I guess I just have to do a re-read :)

*Review copy received from the author for an honest review*

5 amazing and heartbreaking stars!!!

WTF just happened?? I am heartbroken!!!  I would call this story a roller coaster, but I can’t! There were not enough ups for that. I feel like my heart was broken over and over and over. Wow, this was one heck of a read. I really didn’t understand what I was getting myself into with this one. Heartbreak and a sleepless night were not on my agenda…till I started Lies Unspoken.

“I want to hate him, but my body is drawn to him like a magnet.”

Lies Unspoken is Lila’s story. She up and moves to get away from an ex that hurt her, only to unexpectedly run right into the arms of two men who also have the potential to hurt her just as much. Blake Stone and Pierce Stanley are two eye-catching men that can have any woman they want, but both want her. And having them both interested in Lila at the same time is a disaster waiting to happen.  Too many secrets and too much hurt!! Oh, and don’t forget all the HOT and steamy sex scenes ;)

“This whole city and the men in it are throwing me for a loop.”

I truly didn’t expect the twists and turns that this story took me on. My heart ached for all the characters. But, that ending!!! It broke me!!! This story had me asking WHY?!?!? But, all this emotion I am explaining, it made this story awesome!! I wouldn’t have loved it so much if it hadn’t had my emotions so whacked out.

This author is not new to me, and this is not my first 5 star review for one of her books. She has a lifelong fan in me, and I can’t wait for the next installment of this series.

lies unspoken

excerpt

Without warning, his lips crash into mine. At first I fight it, pushing hard against his chest, but he tastes like whiskey. Woodsy and smoky like a campfire, matching the intensity of his kiss. He melts away my anger with his mouth, leaving days’ worth of unrealized sexual tension in its wake.

He tastes.

I lean into him.

He sucks.

My knees go weak.

He isn’t something I wanted. Not three weeks ago. Not even three minutes ago. But as his hands slide up my back, coming up to circle my neck, I’m drowning in want. He tilts my head back to allow himself better access. My tongue tangles with his. Never in a million years did I envision this … how much pleasure I would feel from a simple touch. I guess sometimes we have to have our desires at our fingertips to realize their true depth.

When his lips leave mine, his hands stay. We went from one extreme to another so quickly … I’m not sure what will happen when he pushes the brakes. His face is close, like he wants to kiss me again, but his hands fall away from me instead.

“Don’t—”

One step back.

“Ever—”

Another step.

“Let me—”

Another step. His back hits my bedroom wall.

“Do that again.”

As he exits the room, I’m left wondering what the heck just happened. That kiss took all the cells in my brain and tangled them. I never imagined this, and I hate to admit it but I liked it.

TitleKiro’s Emily (Rosemary Beach)
Author: Abbi Glines
Publisher: Atria Books (December 15, 2014)

synopsis

The year is 1992, and no one on the rock music scene is hotter than Kiro Manning, the lead singer of Slacker Demon. With a multi-platinum record, total ownership of the Billboard charts, sold-out concerts, and sinful amounts of money, Kiro can have anything—and anyone—he wants.

So when a dark-haired, conservative beauty rebuffs him at a concert after-party, his first thought is, “Who the hell does she think she is?” His second thought: “How do I make her mine?” Kiro has always loved a good challenge, but not every girl wants to get involved with a rock god. Especially this girl.

He let her go that night, but he never forgot her. And when they met again, he vowed not to give up again so easily.

As the world worshipped Kiro, he came to worship the girl, who became everything he never knew he needed. The only girl he would ever love. His Emily.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a heart-wrenching e-novella in the Rosemary Beach series about the star-crossed romance between Kiro and Emily, first introduced in Take a Chance. This is Abbi’s holiday gift to the devoted fans of the series.

excerpt
Kiro         
knocked on the door, trying hard not to be pissed that this piece of shit
apartment complex with no fucking security was Emmy’s home. This wasn’t where
I’d been picturing her. And I pictured her a fucking lot.
Waiting with my hands tucked in the pockets of my jeans, I was trying to remain calm.
But fuck it all, I had been waiting to see her face for months. Every time I
heard her voice my entire body went on high alert. I couldn’t rein in its
attraction to Emmy.
I heard a chain sliding out of the lock as the door swung open, revealing her in
a pair of tiny little shorts and a camisole. Her hair was tangled and her
gorgeous eyes were wide.
 “Kiro,” she said, unable to hide the grin that lit up her face. It was midnight. I had
changed my flight from London to come here instead of Los Angeles. I didn’t
fucking miss my house. I only missed one thing while on tour, and it was this
face. Fuck me.
“I wake you up, angel?” I asked, stepping into her apartment with my hands still
firmly stuck in the pockets of my jeans. I didn’t trust them around Emily. They
wanted to touch her.
 It was then I realized she had just crawled out of bed. Her hands went to her hair
as she ran her fingers through the strands, trying to tame them. But I liked it
just the way it was.
“I…you’re here. At my apartment.” She sounded flustered. Then her nose scrunched up and she frowned. “Oh wait. I’m asleep. This is a dream.” Her face fell.
 Fuck it! I took my hands out of my pockets and wrapped her in my arms. She inhaled
deeply as I held her to my chest. “I’m real and you’re very awake,” I told her,
unable to keep the thickness out of my throat. She got to me. She was fucking
with my head. Seriously fucking with it.
“You feel real.” Her arms came around my waist.
 I closed my eyes and soaked her in. Pressing a kiss to the top of her head, I
stood there with her in my arms as long as she would let me. Hell, I would’ve
stood there all damn night if she wanted me to.
“I thought you’d be ready to go home. Aren’t you homesick?” she asked, tilting her
head back to look up at me.
“I was only missing one thing, angel. And it wasn’t in fucking L.A.” I winked as I
cupped her face and felt her soft skin under my thumbs as I brushed her
cheekbones.
She frowned a moment. “Do you mean me?”
I hauled her against me and lifted her inches off the floor as I took the few
strides to the sofa and sank down with her in my lap. She didn’t pull away, and
God, that felt good. “So fucking sweet,” I murmured as I stared down into her
face. I hadn’t made this shit up. She was better than I remembered. Fuck, she
was so much better. That voice had gotten me through the tour.

synopsis

Starting over in Denver with a whole new circle of friends and family, Asa Cross struggles with being the man he knows everyone wants him to be and the man he knows he really is. A leopard doesn’t it change its spots and Asa has always been a predator. He doesn’t want to hurt those who love and rely on him, especially one stunning arresting cop who suddenly seems to be interested in him for far more than his penchant for breaking the law. But letting go of old habits is hard, and it’s easy to hit bottom when it’s the place you know best.

Royal Hastings is quickly learning what the bottom looks like after a tragic situation at work threatens not only her career but her partner’s life. As a woman who has only ever had a few real friends she’s trying to muddle through her confusion and devastation all alone. Except she can’t stop thinking about the sexy southern bartender she locked up. Crushing on Asa is the last thing she needs but his allure is too strong to resist. His long criminal record can only hurt her already shaky career and chasing after a guy who has no respect for the law or himself can only end in heartbreak.

A longtime criminal and a cop together just seems so wrong . . . but for Asa and Royal, being wrong together is the only right choice to make.

abouttheauthor

Ker Dukey
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where i love interacting with my readers.

synopsis

Born into wealth and privilege, free-spirited Liv Quinn left it all behind when she realized there was more to life than living off of trust funds and barely skating by.  Since then, she’s worked and fought for everything she’s earned and never looked back at the world or the family she left behind.

 

Jackson Reid is starting over with a new job in a brand new city.  A single father to his son Noah, he hopes the change will help strengthen the bond that has seemed to suffer since puberty reared its ugly head.  What he hadn’t planned on was Liv—his exotic next-door neighbor who drives him insane with her wild, new age lifestyle, but still manages to leave him aching for more.

 

As challenges arise and feelings intensify, will these neighbors be able to look past their differences and find a middle ground?  When love comes knocking, will they be ready, or not?

review

* A review copy was provided by the author for the Blog Tour *

 

~~ 5 Stars ~~

 

Ready or Not is the 4th and final book in J.L. Berg’s Ready Series.  I absolutely LOVE this series.  Each of the books have been wonderful.  I thought this book was slightly different from the other 3 books, in that it wasn’t as emotional as the other ones.  This one had more humor written into the storyline.  I thought this book was the perfect mix of humor, romance, steam and even drama.  I guess you could consider this book a standalone, because J.L. does a great job filling in the blanks when needed, but I truly feel that this is a series that needs to be read in order, so you get the full effect and connection of the characters.  Because each couple plays such a big part in each others lives.  They truly are interconnected.  As always, I thought the writing of this book was flawless.  J.L. Berg’s writing is always smooth and fast paced.  She never rushes anything but the storyline is so effortless that it just flows along and makes it hard to put down.  I will say that this book seriously had me laughing out loud so many times.  I loved the banter that the author created between Liv, Jackson and Noah.  But actually all the characters added their own comic relief to the story.  What I love the most about J.L.’s books, is that they are truly a feel good fairytale type love story.  Yes she adds a little drama to keep the story interesting, but it is always short lived and never the main focus of the story.  She also creates stories and characters that are relatable and believable.  It is almost impossible not to connect to her characters, their personalities suck you in and wish you were a part of their circle of friends.

 

In this book the focus is on Liv, Jackson and Noah (Jackson’s 11 yr old son).  We met Liv in Ready For You (Book 3)  She is the best friend of Mia.  Liv is a free spirit who loves life and has built a good life for herself after her parents abandoned her.  I loved Liv when we met her in book 3 and I loved her in this book.  She was a sassy but lovable character.  Don’t get me wrong she was slightly broken because she didn’t feel she deserved love or that she would ever be loved.  This stemmed from her childhood.  Well that all changed when she met her new next door neighbor Jackson and his son Noah.  Jackson is a single dad, who is just trying to provide the best life for his son.  So he moved them to a new town and started a new job.  Noah was a lost young man.  His mom left when he was an infant and now his dad changed everything again on him by moving.  Jackson is concerned about Noah and takes him to a therapist….Liv!!!  Liv doesn’t know that Jackson is her new neighbor.  These two characters were great together.  I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll say you need to read this story to see the connection Liv and Jackson have.  I will just say that things in the beginning weren’t smooth sailing, but it had me laughing so hard at times.  Now don’t get me wrong, Jackson was also a swoon worthy guy.  He knew how to melt a pair of panties when he needed to ;)

 

I thought this was an excellent ending to this series.  I am going to be sad to see these characters go.  I loved that J.L. Berg included all of the past characters into this story so we got to keep up with what was happening with them.  The love and friendships in this series were just amazing.  This is a series I will reread many more times in the future.

 

I would definitely recommend this book and series to anyone who is looking for that emotional story that isn’t loaded down with excess drama, but one that will leave you with a huge smile on your face.  Pick up this book, you won’t be sorry!!!!
