Book Blurb:

I don’t believe in destiny.

In fate.

Or in soul mates.

But I believe in Hawke.

My life has never been whole since my parents left forever. I have my brother, someone I can barely tolerate most of the time, and I have my best friend, Marie.

And I have myself.

But when Hawke walks into my life, there’s an immediate connection. Our eyes lock and an unspoken conversation is exchanged. For the first time in my life, I actually feel something.

But he doesn’t.

He keeps me at arm’s length and pretends there’s nothing between us when there clearly is. I’m not the kind of girl to wait around for any guy, so I don’t.

But that doesn’t mean he isn’t in the back of my mind.

Our paths cross again in a way neither one of us expect and it changes everything. Was it destiny that made it happen? Was it fate?

Or was it something else?

~ 4 Grizzly and Muffin Stars ~

I am having a real hard time writing a review for Monday by E.L. Todd. Not because I didn’t like the book, but because I can’t get my thoughts organized enough to put them down on paper. I apologize now, if this review is short or vague. I am going to just express my feelings while reading this book.

Monday is my first book by E.L. Todd and I really did enjoy this book. I actually devoured it and couldn’t put it down. With that said, there were also aspects of the storyline I didn’t like at all and that is the reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars. I was immersed in this story and the characters. I loved E.L.’s writing style and her ability in creating an interesting story and characters you couldn’t help to connect with. She does cover a pretty serious subject in this book and I thought she handled it very well. The subject of Domestic Abuse is covered, but it’s not the main characters who are involved directly. It’s the Hero’s mom who is the victim and we get to see how a loved one handles this situation.

This story had my feelings all over the place. I was happy, sad, mad, and even blushed a time or two. I was also pretty frustrated during this entire book. There is a lot of angst between Hawke and Francesca….so much so I wanted to chuck my kindle on many occasions. Just when I thought things were going to work out for them…BOOM!!! something happens to change it. And of course then this book ended with a CLIFFHANGER!!!! I went into this book not knowing it was a continuing series and that it would have a cliffhanger….This is a book I would’ve have waited for the next book to be out before reading it. I guess that just means I really want the next book….like NOW!!!

I will say that the connection between Hawke and Francesca was something special and had me continually rooting for them to make it. I loved that Francesca loved and saw Hawke for who he was on the inside and was able to look past his flaws and see what he couldn’t see. Is her love strong enough to get them through the tough times or will he push her away for good??? Those are some of the questions in my head that I am hoping the second book…. Tuesday….answers.

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who believes in soul mates and a connection so strong, how can it be wrong. But if you aren’t a fan of cliffhangers this is a book you will want to read when you have access to the next book in the series.

I look forward to reading more about Hawke and Francesca and I really hope to see them get their HEA. Goodness knows they both deserve one. This will definitely not be my last book by E.L. Todd!!!!









My phone rang and Hawke’s name was on the screen.

I forgot to call him and tell him I’d be late. “Hello?”

“I know you’re late to everything but…a phone call would have been nice.” He was half teasing me, half being serious.

“I’m sorry. I got a flat tire, and I’ve been trying to change it.”

“What?” he barked.

“Dude, this is really hard. I’ve been out here for an hour and a half.”

Instead of laughing, he growled. “Are you kidding me right now?”

Did I miss something? “What?”

“Why didn’t you call me? I can change a tire in two seconds.”

“I thought I could figure it out until…I realized I couldn’t.”

“It’s freezing outside and it’s dark. Are you stupid?”

Now I growled back. “You don’t need to be a dick.”

“I’m going to be a dick when your head is shoved up your ass. Now where are you so I can come and get you?”

“I can change the tire on my own.”


“How will I ever learn if you don’t let me figure it out?”

“I could teach you. Did you think of that, smartass?” He was practically screaming at me over the phone.

“If you’re going to throw a hissy fit, I’m going to hang up.”

“You better not—”


I set my phone down and got back to work.

He called back in two seconds.

I sighed then answered. “What?”

“Tell me where you are.”

“So you can come down here and yell at me?”

“So I can change your tire. Now spit it out.”

“I’m almost done. I can figure it out.”

“You’re really pissing me off,” he snapped. “Tell me where you are or—”


He called back immediately.

He was such a drama queen. “What?” I yelled.


I rolled my eyes and stayed mute.

“Now tell me where you are before I search the streets.”

I looked around and tried to find a street name. “I’m at Gettysburg Park. I’m right at the curb.”

Now he hung up on me.

~ 4 Stars ~

Dare to Take was an enjoyable and quick read. It is second chance romance but also a forbidden story between a man and his love for his sister’s BFF. This book had a little bit of everything. We had some laughter, love, suspense and a little bit of drama to keep the reader turning the pages.

Dare to Take is the 6th and I believe the final book in the Dare to Love Series by Carly Phillips. It is a stand alone novel but has some reoccurring characters from past books, because this series centers around the Dare Siblings. I am usually the type of reader that has to read a series in order, but for some reason this book called to me and I read this before reading any of the other books. I didn’t feel lost at all, Carly did a fantastic job filling in any of the missing components so that I could follow along without any trouble. I found the storyline engaging and entertaining, so I never felt that the story dragged on. I felt the pace and flow was spot on. This is my second read by Carly Phillips and I am a fan for life. Now I need to go back and read all of the rest of the books in this series :) I have definitely fallen in love with Carly’s writing style, creative stories and lovable characters. Plus she knows how to write one steamy love story 😉

One thing I love about Carly’s books, is that she gets to the heart of the story right from the start. From page one she sucks her readers in and doesn’t bog down her stories with a lot of build up or information that the reader doesn’t need. She also doesn’t overload the story with a lot of excess drama. The drama that was created in this story was because of the demons that both Tyler and Ella needed to overcome. The drama is pretty short lived in this story. I also loved that she added the aspect of suspense to this storyline…she kept me guessing 😉 I also really enjoyed the epilogue in this book, because it seemed to wrap up the Dare Sibling stories and also introduced the new Hero to her new series that is coming out. I look forward to reading Kade’s story.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Carly Phillips and also a fan of second chance romances or forbidden sister bff’s stories. If you like a quick, sweet and sexy read then this is the book to pick up and enjoy. It will leave you with a smile on your face.

The sun shone overhead, the temperature neared ninety, and the humidity was hair-curlingly high on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, making it hard to believe a hurricane was coming soon. Ella Shaw glanced up at the blue sky, knowing it wouldn’t remain pristine for long.

The calm before the storm.

She pulled her hair into a high ponytail and headed out of her hotel, determined to hit the local gift shop she’d caught sight of on her way to the photo shoot yesterday. She’d seen long, draping, blue-beaded necklaces from the storefront window, but she hadn’t had time to stop. Her boss was a stickler for getting the right shot in the exact light, and they’d worked well past dark. By the time they’d wrapped for the day, the store had been closed.

As an assistant for Angie Crighton, a fashion designer based in Miami, Ella was responsible for the little details involved in a photo shoot. And though Angie, the photographer, and models had left the island this morning, Ella had stayed to make sure the shooting site was clean, the hotel pleased enough to allow them back another time. And if she were honest with herself, she liked the downtime after the craziness of a photo shoot, the rushing around of the crew, the bossiness of some of the models and, of course, of Angie herself.

Ella appreciated the fact that she had time to souvenir shop for her best friend, Avery Dare. How ironic was it that the two girls from very different worlds had met at all? But they had. And it was Avery who’d introduced Ella to the finer things in life, leading her to seek out a job with an haute-couture designer. Whereas Avery came from a wealthy family, Ella had been raised firmly middle class, but the two girls had bonded instantly. They’d even shared an apartment until recently, when her best friend had moved in with her rock star boyfriend, Grey Kingston.

Yep, two different worlds, even now, Ella thought wryly. But their friendship was solid. Which reminded her, she needed to let Avery know she might not make it back to the States tomorrow as planned.

When Ella had heard about the storm changing course, she’d tried to book an earlier flight out, without success. She shivered at the possibility of being stranded here alone during a hurricane and knew Avery would like the news even less. Her best friend suffered from severe anxiety, and Ella didn’t like to make her worry.

She’d just buy Avery an extra gift to make up for it, she thought, walking into the shop. She immediately headed to the turquoise-blue beads she’d seen through the window. The shopkeeper claimed they were Larimar beads. Even if they were fake, the beads, popular in the Caribbean, were said to have healing powers. Ella purchased two dozen, a mix of bracelets and necklaces, so she could share with the children at the cancer treatment center where she and Avery volunteered.

Avery had been nine, Ella ten years old when they’d met at a Miami hospital, both donating bone marrow, both there at the behest of a parent. Neither of them really understanding what was happening. All Ella had known was that she was doing a favor for her father, helping the stepmother Ella didn’t like all that much to begin with. Even at a young age, Ella had been a good judge of character, a better one than her father, obviously, because shortly after Janice had gotten well, she’d left Ella’s dad. And both her father and Ella’s life had gone downhill from there. Ella shook off the thoughts of her past before she could go deeper and darker, and focused on the pretty jewelry.

She spent some time choosing a thick turquoise bracelet for Avery and a similar one for herself before paying for everything and waiting for the shopkeeper to wrap things up.

Bag in hand, she started back to the hotel, cutting through side streets and looking into the windows of the stores, soaking up the culture along the cobblestone streets before heading back to Miami tomorrow. At least, she still hoped she’d be home. Knowing she couldn’t change the outcome, she pushed her worrisome thoughts aside. She’d deal with the situation as it came.

Sweat dampened her neck from the humidity of the island, and she contemplated taking a cab back to the hotel. She reached into her straw bag and pulled out her cell phone to make the call, when, without warning, she felt a hard jerk on her purse.

“What the—?” She spun around, but whomever wanted her purse was quicker.

She barely caught a glimpse of a tall guy with dark hair as he yanked harder, nearly pulling her shoulder out of its socket before slamming her against the nearby building with his other hand.

Her head hit the concrete wall, and spots immediately appeared behind her eyes from the impact. As she struggled not to pass out, the man grabbed her purse, along with her cell phone that had fallen to the ground.

She opened her mouth to scream, but nothing came out. Her legs collapsed beneath her, and she fell to the ground, her head smacking the sidewalk before everything went black.

bigeasyThe New York Times bestselling authors of the Masters of Ménage series present the third scintillating novel featuring the privileged, wealthy, wild men of Creighton Academy—the Perfect Gentlemen.

Years ago, Naval officer Dax Spencer and NCIS agent Holland Kirk indulged in a steamy affair—until she betrayed him in the wake of his father’s death. Dax tried to put her behind him with a payback of his own. But he never forgot Holland…

Now, as Dax and his fellow Perfect Gentlemen unravel a web of lies, he discovers his family’s tragedy is part of a much larger conspiracy. Soon, all clues point him back to New Orleans…where Holland waits, protecting her deadly secret and holding a torch for the only man she’s ever loved.

Once reunited, they can’t fight the passion flaring hot and wild. But something sinister lurks around every corner, from the elegance of the Garden district to the beauty of the bayou. Dax and Holland may find their way back to each other—if they survive…

She emerged from the bathroom as he approached. Her eyes widened when she caught sight of him, but she settled back into her calm and collected persona. “Are you ready to go?”

So polite. He wanted to get past that genteel surface and find the passionate woman he knew lay underneath. “I’m ready for a lot of things, Holland. Most of all, I’m ready to finish what we started all those years ago.”

She backed up, her body hitting the wall behind her. “What are you talking about?”

Oh, she knew exactly what he was talking about, but he could make it clear to her. “I never got to finish that kiss. My father interrupted us.”

Holland shook her head, but she was looking at his mouth. Her breath had gone shallow. “We finished. And I walked away.”

He moved closer, crowding her. “I definitely didn’t get my fill, sweetheart. Maybe if I had, you wouldn’t have left. I think it’s time we fixed that problem.”

Dax leaned in slowly, giving her the opportunity to protest. He’d never force her . . . but persuasion was something else entirely.

“Tell me you don’t want me to kiss you right here, right now.”

“You know I can’t,” she whispered.

That was what he wanted to hear. He braced his hand against the wall above her head and hovered close, breathing in her scent. She smelled like ripe peaches and something so her. It thrilled his senses.

Slowly, he reached for the soft skin of her face and cupped it. “I never stopped thinking about you. Not once, Holland. I don’t think I’m capable of forgetting you.”

“This is a mistake.” She breathed the words onto his lips, their mouths drawing ever closer. “It can’t end well.”

He closed the remaining distance between them and brushed his lips over hers, giving her a taste of what was to come. “It can if we make it. We choose our fates.”

He would make his marriage work. Together, they would have children who always felt loved and never worried that their parents didn’t put them and each other first.

Dax deepened the kiss, sliding his tongue over her plump bottom lip and thrilling when she shuddered. Her trembling hands skated up his torso as she pressed their bodies closer and kissed him harder. Then she opened her mouth and he felt the slide of her tongue against his.

Pure fire threatened to consume him. Usually, he took his time and worked up to sex, but the feel of this woman in his arms made him rough and ready in a heartbeat. He wanted to shove her against the wall and thrust his cock deep. Take her. His whole being screamed out to claim her once and for all.

He pinned her to the wall, covering her body with his as he prolonged the kiss. With greedy palms, he hugged her curves, then settled on her waist and pulled her hard against him. He hated the clothing between them, wanted nothing more than to feel her silky flesh.

“Dax, we shouldn’t,” she breathed against his mouth.

“Stop thinking. Feel. Feel how much I want you, Holland.” He pressed his pelvis against hers. It wasn’t a gentlemanly thing to do, but he couldn’t be polite with her. She brought out the caveman in him. He wanted to mark her, to let everyone else know this one woman was his.

He silenced her with his kiss, delving deep again. Her fingers clung to his shoulders as her body molded to his, fitting together. Chest to chest. Belly to belly. His erection nestled against her pussy.

Could he take her in the bathroom? He had a condom. All he needed was a few minutes of privacy to ease the ache they were both suffering. But as much as he wanted her, Dax couldn’t fathom that his first time with Holland would be in a public john. She deserved better. So did they.

As he forced himself to ease back, an unfamiliar voice drifted down the hall. “If you’ll come this way, we’ll take a peek into the private dining room.”

Holland gasped at the intrusion and shoved at him. Dax stared at her flushed cheeks and swollen lips, a ribbon of satisfaction winding through him.

“As you can plainly see, Antoine’s is noted for its romantic environment. Like everything here in New Orleans, we keep it spicy,” the male voice said again.

Dax grimaced when he noticed a group of tourists taking one of the food and wine tours conducted daily throughout the city. As the group passed, Holland looked even more flustered. Obviously, she hadn’t been caught in many compromising positions before. Luckily he had.

Dax stepped in front of her and nodded to the guide as he walked past.

“Y’all have a nice night in the Quarter,” he said with a smile.

*Warning: This book contains strong language and graphic sex between a teacher and his consenting student. It’s hot and sexy smut at its finest. Mr. Tucker is recommended for mature readers 18 and over.

A senior bet.

Almost every school has one–a tradition that’s passed down from year to year. My small school in Tennessee is no different. While some seniors at schools all across the country have senior pranks or senior ditch days, our school has the senior bet.

Lose your virginity by spring break–have proof–and you’re in the running for prom queen.

Does it sound ridiculous?

It absolutely is, but ridiculousness won’t stop me from getting my prom queen nomination. I’ve had plenty of opportunities to lose my V-card to one of the boys at my school, but I don’t want to sleep with a high school boy. I want a man with experience. I want the man that’s been starring in my wet dreams at night. I want my history teacher. I want Mr. Tucker.

~ 4 Sweet Girl Stars ~

Let me start by saying I LOVE Justine Elvira books. Her stories suck me in and keep my interest all the way through. Mr. Tucker was no different. I found the story line very interesting and held my attention all the way until the end. Her books can be very addicting!!!

With that said, Mr. Tucker isn’t my favorite book by Justine. I really enjoyed the main storyline of the student/teacher plot, but I guess one thing I didn’t like about the story was the premise of this High School bet to become a nominee for Prom Queen. I don’t want to go into specifics, because I don’t want to ruin the story for others, but I just had a hard time swallowing that part of the story. I think if that aspect would’ve been left out of the book, then this would’ve been an easy 5 stars for me. Like I said I really LOVE a good taboo read and this student/teacher story was a great one.

I thought the story moved along smoothly and nothing was really dragged out to slow the pace of the book down. I will say I had a slightly difficult time connecting with Mr. Tucker (Landon) in the beginning because he wasn’t like Justine’s normal Hero. I would’ve liked to see more of the man he was at the end of the book during the whole story. I will say one thing for Justine….she sure does know how to write a steamy book 😉 This book borders on Erotic. I had to fan myself and drink plenty of ice cold water to cool myself down on many of occasions.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great student/teacher taboo story. This book has little to no angst or major drama, but the sexual tension was off the charts. This book is told mostly from Savannah’s POV but we do get some chapters from Landon’s POV also. This is a stand alone book with NO cliffhanger.

I will say that if you aren’t a fan of a taboo story, or where there is a teacher/student relationship or if a large age gap bothers you, then this isn’t the book for you. There is a seven year gap between Savannah and Landon. When the book starts Savannah is 17, but she turns 18 shortly after the start of the book. Landon is 25 during the story. I will say that nothing happens between these two characters until she is of legal age, so there is no worries there.

Meet Marco Valenti in Hook by Elisabeth Grace!

hook teaser 6









Women loathed me without even knowing my name.
Men coveted the very idea of me.

Escort. Call girl. Prostitute. Hooker. Whore.

I’d heard it all. Done it all.

Over the years I’d felt a lot of things about my occupation…but not regret–never regret. I had my reasons for doing what I did and nothing and no one had ever made me question them.


He’d changed me and I’d naively fed into the fairy tale.
But Marco wasn’t my Prince Charming.
He had secrets of his own.
Secrets that would eventually rip away everything I held dear.



hook teaser 7




Marco leaned into me, his breath fanning across my face, causing goosebumps to race across my skin. “You’re very stubborn for someone who’s paid to provide me pleasure. É una fortuna che mi piacciono le sfide.”
“What was that?” I asked softly.
“Good thing I enjoy a challenge,” he replied without blinking.
I cleared my throat, uncomfortable with the level of attention he was giving me. “Why don’t we get on with what I’m here for,” I suggested in a sultry voice.
His eyes narrowed. “As you wish. Your madam says you are like a…” He looked off toward the ceiling. “The animal that changes color.”
“A chameleon?”
“That is the one.” He smiled widely, showcasing a dimple in his left cheek, made more pronounced by the dark stubble on his jaw. As sudden as the ferocity had flared up inside of him, it quickly disappeared.
“It’s true. I can be whatever you want,” I replied in a seductive voice. I closed the distance between us, placing my hand on his chest. He flinched at the contact like I’d scorched him. Not a lot, but enough that I noticed.
Looking up into the depths of his dark eyes, I said, “Why don’t you tell me what you’re looking for, and then we can discuss any extras in my payment.”
The smile dropped from his face and he reached for my wrist, pulling my hand from his chest. “What I want from you will be very different than most men.”
My eyes widened and I sucked in a breath. This ought to be interesting. I’d had all manner of things proposed to me before, but the fact that Marco felt the need to warn me set off alarm bells ringing in my head.
“And what is it you want from me, Mr. Valenti?” I whispered.
“Call me Marco.”
“Alright, Marco.”
He traced his thumb along my hairline and stared down at me, intensity pouring out of his gaze like a waterfall. My breathing hitched, and I found myself wanting to lean into his caress to further close the distance between us.
Then the hum of his cell phone vibrating from his pocket broke our connection. He reached into his pocket, glanced briefly at the screen, and stepped back to take the call.
“As always, your timing is impeccable.” The corners of his mouth dipped, and I had the distinct impression that he wasn’t pleased with whoever was on the other end of the line.
Marco listened for a moment while staring out the wall of glass down to the strip below. His hand holding the phone flexed around it for a second at something the other person had said.
“Give me five minutes,” he bit out.
Another pause.
“Well, if you want it to happen tonight, you have no choice but to wait.” Without a goodbye, he ended the call and placed the phone back into the breast pocket of his suit jacket.
With his hands on his hips, he remained facing the window for a moment, drawing in deep breaths of air.
“I must go.”
Not what I was expecting to hear. “Okay…”
He turned and stalked forward until only mere inches separated the two of us. His large hand came to rest at the swell of my hip before he leisurely dragged it across my waist and brushed the side of my breast with his palm. My nipples tightened inside my lace bra.
Marco dropped his hand and leaned into me. My heart picked up pace inside my chest as I waited for his lips to touch mine. He stood solid and still before me while I waited, my anticipation like a live wire setting every nerve ending in my body on fire.
Just when I thought he’d close those final few inches, he brought his face alongside mine and his low voice sounded in my ear, “I’ll get you your money.”
His words were like a bucket of cold water, and I stepped back as if he’d slapped me. It pissed me off that he’d left me wanting.
He stalked back over to the bar and returned a moment later with an envelope. I eyed the cash inside before placing it in my purse. It seemed ridiculous to me that I’d be paid for having a conversation in the man’s room for such a short time, but I wasn’t about to argue with him about it.
“It’s been a pleasure, Mr. Valenti.” I made sure to use his last name since he’d asked me not to. I had a tendency to lash out when I was upset.
An amused grin formed on his face, but he said nothing. I strutted around him to the suite door.
As I unlocked the dead bolt then slid the chain across, Marco’s hand landed on my ass, skimming over it a few times before his other hand pulled my hair to the side to expose my neck.
I hadn’t even heard him come up behind me.
He pressed a kiss to the base of my neck and I shuddered, shivers racing up my spine. I felt his smile against my skin before he removed his lips and stepped away.
Without a backward glance, I turned the door handle and left the suite.
The warm feeling that had invaded my chest remained, but my stomach fell into a nauseous churning. Somehow my body knew what I didn’t already. Marco Valenti would be the springboard in my life that caused everything to change.

~ 5 Italian Stars ~

Nooooooo!!! I can’t believe that ending. I NEED the next book like now!! Is it June yet?? LOL :)

Holy Moly….Elisabeth Grace outdid herself with this book!! I loved ever second of it.

Hook was so different from anything else she has written. This book definitely packed a punch. It had everything a 5 star book should have. She gave us mystery, suspense, sex, and a lot of love. Now I know what you are thinking…another Escort story, there is going to be cheating or other things a reader won’t like. Well I am here to tell you this book has NO CHEATING what so ever. I love how this story unfolded and I think other readers will love this as well. I will give you one warning though….this book does end on a CLIFFHANGER and it is one that will have you biting your nails. So if you aren’t a fan of cliffhangers, my suggestion is to wait for the second book to be released before reading this one. But you will want to read this Duet for sure.

What happens when a High End Escort meets a client who changes her views on everything she believed and also opens her up to other options in life??

Well I am not going to answer that question, you will need to read this book to get that answer. I will not be discussing the plot of this story at all because I don’t want to ruin it for others who haven’t read the book yet. Just know that this book will have your mind reeling and you will be sitting on the edge of your seat, just waiting for the answers. This book does raise a lot of questions in the mind of the reader and none of them are answered in this book. I am guessing all will be told in the next book Burn, which is due out in June sometime. I absolutely loved every character we meet in this book. Brandi, Marco and all the others.

Brandi is a high end escort in Las Vegas. I loved that she didn’t hide what she did and made no excuses for it either. She had a really strong reason for being an escort and I can understand why she turned to this lifestyle. She is very loyal and protective of the ones she loves. She is one of my favorite heroines!! I am definitely interested to see where her story leads. As for Marco….he is one fine Italian man. Talk about a man who can melt panties 😉 He is strong and mysterious, but also has a warm and caring side to him. I can’t wait to find out his secrets.

This is for sure one of my favorite reads of 2016 and I know I will be reading it again in the near future!!

So if you are a fan of an escort themed love story that has romance, suspense and mystery, then this is the book to read!! Pick this one up, you won’t be sorry!!!

William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.

Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.

When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again. In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.

Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before. But he never imagined what that fight might cost him.

A.L. Jackson gives you an intimate look into the lives of a family bound by an unseen connection in this new contemporary romance.

Jackson that I have read and I am ready to build this woman a shrine.” Natasha is a Book Junkie

A Letter to my Readers


Rape. Just typing that word makes my gut tie up in knots. And that’s part of the problem.

Because it’s so uncomfortable, we don’t want to talk about it. So it gets buried at the bottom the newsfeed or forgotten altogether, like the backlog of untested rape kits.


Last March, I released Quiet Angel in which the heroine is a survivor of childhood sexual assault. A few weeks later, my husband became gravely ill, and we spent the rest of the year (5 long hospital stays and 4 long surgeries) fighting to regain his health. As I sat in the hospital chair next to his bed night after night, I got messages from women about how my book touched them. Some shared their reasons, and others didn’t.


I came to learn that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. How could I not know that? just released a book on the very topic. Yet I didn’t see one post about it on any of my social media accounts.


Early this year, I began writing Layers of Her with the intent to spread awareness and donate of April’s profits to charity. I was nervous when I started, and I still am. I mean, how much the profits be? Will readers assume I’m a survivor or I know one? Will I do the topic justice?


Why am I doing this? It’s a whole lot easier to stay silent. But that’s the whole problem, isn’t I work in a field, in the genre of fiction, that is mostly comprised of women, where sexual assault is one of the most common tropes. And with each passing page, we pull for our broken heroes and heroines to heal, find love, forge a new path. That’s all we want for them. We need to do same for the real life heroes and heroines, those brave souls who fight the real fight every single day. So join me this April in making some noise to raise awareness, not only for the survivors but for those who love them.

AP new - synopsis.jpg


People always say it’s what’s on the inside that matters. If that’s the case, I’m screwed. On the outside, everything looks put together — blonde hair, blue eyes, tall and lean. By society’s standards, I’d be considered attractive. But f*ck society, I know what I am. I know what I’m made of. The recessive genes that reared their heads and created a decent looking package on the outside don’t make me who I am. What about all the evil lurking inside? What about all the other parts of me that aren’t so easy to see? Some of the most beautiful animals are also the deadliest. Take the polar bear, for example. Cute and cuddly on the outside, but it’s really a predator that will bite your f*cking head off. That’s a dangerous combination.


And that’s exactly like me, exactly who I am. Bad — and once you go bad, you can never go back.


WARNING: This book deals with the harsh reality of rape that could be upsetting for some readers.



AP new - excerpt.jpg


“What made you come for me?” she asks.  I tell her my theory about men making decisions based on one of three body parts — head, heart, dick.  “So which led you to my house tonight?” she asks.


“Let’s just say two out of three ain’t bad.”


Her giggle fills up the room.  “Stone?”




“Don’t let me forget.”  


“Forget what?”


“How good I feel right now,” she says.


I know exactly what she’s feeling.  She doesn’t think she deserves to be happy.  It’s a constant waiting on the other shoe to drop so you can prove to yourself that all the bad shit you fill your head with is true.  That you’re bad, and that’s why bad things happen around you, or to those you love.  Dealt with that myself when Tate got her diagnosis.  Who am I kidding?  I still fight those demons, knowing she’s suffering because of my mistakes.  Self-blame is a bitch.  Self-hatred is even worse.  Guess I’ll just have to teach Campbell to love herself as much as I love her.


Yeah, yeah, it’s fast.  But how long does it really take to fall in love with someone?  A minute?  An hour?  A day?  A year?  For me, it took exactly one kiss.  The moment her lips touched mine in that hospital room, I was gone.  


Besides, what do you really have to know about a person to love them?  Not a damn thing other than how they make you feel when you close your eyes at the end of the day with them wrapped in your arms.


Layers of Her - Teaser 01 v2.jpg


* Reviewed this book for the Blog Tour *

~ 5 Forgiving Stars ~

I didn’t know what to expect when I chose to read Layers of Her, I just knew that I had to read it because Prescott Lane wrote it. I will be honest and say I was quite nervous about reading this book, given the topic. And after reading the letter to the readers from the author, I thought this story was going to be different.

This book went in a different direction then I thought it would, but I will agree with the author, this book could be a trigger for someone who has trouble with the topic of rape/sexual assault. I will say that Prescott did a great job writing this book. She wrote about a topic that is not usually talked about freely and usual shoved under the rug. She handled this situation with tact and decorum. If you are a reader who has some trouble when reading about sexual assault, I will say that she did this book justice in the fact that nothing is graphically described. I will also say that the actual assault in this story is really a small factor in this book, she doesn’t describe the event at all. What this book touches on is the after effects of an assault and how it effects everyone, from the victim and those around the victim.

I really don’t want to say much more about the storyline, because I don’t want to spoil anything. I just felt that what I wrote above, the reader needs to know going into the book. Everything else I believe the reader needs to discover on their own.

Layers of Her is truly a story of forgiveness, love and healing. In this story we follow the path to forgiveness for Campbell. Campbell was a different heroine than I have read before. I can’t explain why because that is a spoiler, but she was a strong person, but also so very broken. She truly believed that she didn’t deserve to be loved and that she was bad and dark on the inside. That is until she meets Stone and he shows her that she is worth loving and that your past doesn’t define the person you are today. Campbell and Stone’s relationship is of the insta- love variety. They moved pretty quickly in this book, but for some reason it worked in this instance. I loved Stone!!! He was so patient and understanding. He truly is the epitome of a Book Boyfriend.

This story showed that there truly are many layers to people and that if you find the right person, they will love all the layers unconditionally.

I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a quick read, but filled with a lot of emotions. If you don’t mind a book that covers some serious topics, then this is a book I think people should read. I truly believe it will give many readers an insight to what a victim of sexual assault and those who love them go through.

Katy Lewis
has it all: a sports reporting job she loves, a great roommate, and two
brothers who, while nosy, always have her back. But when Conner Roberts, Katy’s
unrequited first crush, suddenly shows up—and shows interest—after nine years,
she reverts to a sweaty, panicked sixteen-year-old once more.
And if trying to read Conner’s
signals isn’t tough enough, Katy’s heart is sending some mixed messages of its
own. When a beautiful blonde coworker starts pursuing Katy’s boss, Dylan
Sterling—her longtime mentor and friend—she realizes she may have a problem
with that. A reunion with Conner is what she’s dreamed of for so long…so why
can’t she stop thinking about Dylan?

For the first time ever, Katy must
fact-check her heart. Should she go after the guy she thought she always wanted
or see if there’s something more with the one who’s been there all along?

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

4 “two peas in a pod” stars!

This is a cute story! Something More Than This takes you on short journey through Katy’s little love triangle. The gist is Katy’s torn between a childhood crush, Connor, and the man she didn’t even know she wanted, Dylan.

“What is wrong with me? Why am I thinking about this? And why the hell does it bother me to the point that I’m embarrassed to even look at him right now.”

The story is filled with more humor than I expected, mostly from Katy’s best friend, Mimi. And the humor was refreshing. As much as I enjoy a love triangle, a love tringle with humor instead of drama is great.

“I need to get home and hide under the blankets and figure out what I’m going to do about Conner…and Dylan.”

Would I have handled things the way Katy did?!? Would I have done and said some of the silly things she did?!? Heck no, but it sure was funny!! I knew from the beginning where she needed to be, but I still enjoyed reading about her silly self getting to that place J Connor and Daniel are both great guys, but it was obvious from the very beginning, who she was meant to be with. Or at least to me it was, just not her 😉

“He’s what I want. But I don’t know how to tell him that, so the words get lodged somewhere in my throat.”

This is an entertaining and easy read that is sure to make a great weekend read. Or even better, a good beach day read J This was not my first read by this author, and not my favorite, but still very good. Let me know what you think! Happy Reading!
