~~ 5 Brotherhood Stars ~~

 

Hold on to your hats….this book was quite the adventure.  Let me start by saying that Debra Anastasia knows how to write a book/series that keeps you wanted more of these characters.  Saving Poughkeepsie is book 3 in her Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series and I have to say I loved each one of them equally.  This is an AMAZING series.  What I loved about this book and the others was that we got so much more than just one story.  This was more of three stories in one.  Debra’s writing is flawless and engaging.  This book sucked me in as soon as I started it and didn’t let go until it was done.  Saving Poughkeepsie was a continuation of Beckett and Eve’s story but we still got to see Blake and Livia and Kyle and Cole’s story play out.  These three brother’s lives are so entwined that you can’t really tell the story without telling all their stories.

 

I loved the direction that she took with this story.  I can honestly say I didn’t see it coming and I haven’t read anything like this before.  I won’t be telling any secrets about the storyline, just know it will keep you turning the page.  I am also glad to say that my love for Beckett is still just as strong as it was in the first two books.  Beckett was just as raw and gritty in this book as before, but I was glad to say  that we also got to see another side of him that made me love him even more ;)  I also enjoyed watching Eve and Beckett grow stronger in this book.  They truly are each other soul mates.

 

As I said before we also got to follow the journey of Blake, Livia, Kyle and Cole in all three of these books.  I was so glad that we got to continue on with their stories as well, sometimes in series we lose previous characters or are only given small glimpses into their futures.  That is not the case with this series.  There is NO way to tell one story without telling the others.

 

I know that this review is pretty repetitive and vague, but I truly believe that this is the type of series you need to go into blind.  I would definitely recommend every one of these books.  If you are looking for an interesting storyline with amazing characters and is nothing like you’ve read before….Then pick up this series….You won’t be sorry :)

          excerpt

“I’m not
worried about tomorrow. I’m worried about right now, with you, under this
Christmas tree.” Blake supported her neck as he laid her on the floor.
Livia
turned her head. “You’d better convince me. So far you’ve talked about the dog
going to the bathroom, trash, and dirtiness.”
Blake
kissed her jaw and turned her head gently, kissing her mouth as she bit her
lips together.
“Can’t I
just convince you with my manly ways?” He wiggled his eyebrows.
He could,
of course, do just that—but she shook her head. She loved the playful sparkle
in his green eyes. His five o’clock shadow just made him more handsome, framing
his kissable lips with scruff. 
“Okay.”
He put his fingers at the bottom of her shirt, lifting it gently so he could
circle her belly button with his index finger. “You’re the sexiest, most
beautiful woman on this planet. So sexy, in fact, that I had to have you. I had
to make you bear my children because my universe and yours had to be combined.
Everything I’ve ever been needed to be buried inside of you, so deep, so full
of love that we created life. Twice.”
He lifted
her shirt and kissed the tops of her breasts, whispering his devotion into her
skin. “And it’s never enough. Unless I can hear you coming, I can’t think of
anything else. All day every day. For years now. You’re that powerful, Livia.
This. Us. It’s so intense that years haven’t cured me. I can’t stop wanting to
make love to you.”
“Wow.”
Livia smiled and pulled his face back to hers, kissing him and effectively
stopping his beautiful words.

excerpt

The enormous skybox spilled over with A-listers, and it was decorated with a glitzy Vegas lounge motif. Lisa was in her element, pointing out celebrity after celebrity, drooling over each and every one.

“Holy cow! Jessie, look at Ashley Marshall! Those boobs are totally fake—I don’t care what she said in that interview! Do you see Jordan Priestly over there? He is so much hotter in person, don’t you think? Should I go and talk to him? He just broke up with Melissa Travers, I read about it in US Weekly on the flight out here!”

Laughing, Jessica’s eyes traveled around the crowded skybox, marveling at how many stars showed up to Oak- land that night. I guess Dezzie is one hot ticket after all.

Her smile faded when her eyes locked on Paul Emerson. Oh please, not again …

“Lisa!” She nudged her friend.

“What?” Lisa snapped to attention. “Do you see someone else? Is Dezzie in here?”

“No, not Dezzie. Paul Emerson.” Jessica nodded to where he stood.

Whoa,” Lisa breathed. “He’s gorgeous, Jessie, you crazy ass fool. Remind me again why you’re not interested in bedding that perfect specimen of a man over and over and over?”

Jessica rolled her eyes. “That’s just the wrapping, Li. I’m much more into what’s inside the box, you know?”

“Look, sweetie, you’ve already unwrapped the pack- age and acknowledged how unbelievable it was. How much better do you think it’s going to get?”

“That’s not what I meant,” Jessica groaned. She was fighting a losing battle. Lisa didn’t care about substance.

“Uh, don’t look now, but I guess Emerson spotted you too, Jessie.” Lisa poked her with a long red fingernail.

“Whaa?” Jessica turned to see Paul walking towards them. Oh crap. “Don’t leave, okay, Li? I’m telling you, something makes me really uncom—”

Lisa snorted. “Spare me, Jess. If some rich foxy guy had me in his sights, uncomfortable is the last thing I’d feel. Loosen up a little and have some fun with it. You’re young, hot and based on that smoldering look he’s giving you, I’d say you’re pretty damn good in the sack.”

Emma Hart’s brand new series BY HIS GAME starts off with this explosive first book Blindsided!

 

 

RELEASE DATE: January 12, 2015


From Emma Hart, the New York Times bestselling author of the Game series, comes a brand new series where the game is realer, the tension is
tighter, the sex is hotter, and the stakes are the highest of all…
Two people. Two agendas. Two games.
What happens when the out-there It-Boy of football meets the secret It-Girl of fashion?
As the daughter of Hollywood’s sweetheart, Leah Veronica can’t even buy a coffee without finding her face on a magazine stand, so it’s no wonder she’s launching her first fashion line in secret. With it debuting at New York Fashion Week in just under a month, extra time in the spotlight is the last thing she needs.
The son of the best quarterback the league has ever seen,
filling legendary shoes as the L.A. Vipers’ quarterback was inevitable for
Corey Jackson. So was meeting Leah Veronica—the first girl to hand him his ass
without putting a hair out of place.
Getting the handsome, prickly blonde into his bed becomes
his number one goal. But getting the sexy, over-confident footballer the hell
away from her becomes Leah’s—at least until she realizes the best way to do
that is to give him what he wants.
If only it was that simple.
When Corey discovers who she is, and private photos of Hollywood’s finest find their way online, everything they thought they knew is
thrown into disarray.
And when secrets are exposed and hearts are shattered, they have to figure out if they’ve been blindsided by love or reality, and if it’s
worth running the extra yard to win the game they never meant to play.

excerpt
Leah’s Great Aunt Ada has been staring at me all night. I’m hovering somewhere between cute and creepy, because she has the most adorable little grin she shoots my way whenever I catch her looking. Crow’s feet appear at the corners of her eyes, and her cheeks flush just a little. I think she might have a crush on me.
Again, hovering between cute and creepy.
“Aunt Ada. Will you please stop looking at him like he’s dessert?” Leah sighs, taking Ada’s plate from in front of her.
“Stop hooking up with Bert? Whoever is Bert?” Ada replies,
looking genuinely confused.
I quirk my eyebrow, and Grace leans across the table.
“Hearing aid, Ada.”
The old woman blinks, then slips her hand into her pocket.
She pulls out a small, nude-colored device and fits it to her ear. “Now, Lele, what was that you were saying about hooking up with Bert?”
Lele?
Leah catches my eye and gives me a death stare. “I didn’t say anything about Bert. I asked you to stop looking at Corey like he’s dessert.”
“He isn’t?”
I cough into my hand.
“Ada, it’s late. I think you should, perhaps, go to bed now.” Grace winks at me and stands.
“But we haven’t danced.”
“People don’t dance at dinner now, Aunt Ada,” Leah tells her. “They eat, they drink, they go home.”
“Well, how boring. You young’uns don’t know how to have a good time.”
Grace swoops Ada out of the kitchen with her still muttering about ‘kids today.’
“Oh, they do,” Leah murmurs, loading the dishwasher. “They just don’t invite old people along.”
I grin. “Do you need any help?”
She shakes her head instead of answering me verbally. She hasn’t said a fucking word to me since she rebuffed my offer of a date. Even through dinner, she managed to contribute to the conversation without directing a single sentence at me.
And it’s slowly starting to really, really piss me off.
I watch her scrape the plates into the trash then bend over and put them in the dishwasher. Her dress rides up her legs, the hem hovering at the very top of her thighs. If she bends over another half an inch, her underwear will be fully exposed to me. So will her ass, and if she’s that kind of girl, maybe her pussy, too.
My cock twitches at the thought. Fuck—I want to go over there and see. I want to flick that stupid fucking dress up and see what kind of underwear she wears, and if that doesn’t make me hard imagining it…
“Are you staring at my ass?” she asks, her words slicing through the silence easily but sharply.
“On a scale of one to ten, how honestly do you want me to answer that?”
“Very honestly.”
My eyes coast over her smooth skin. “About a fifty.”
She slams the dishwasher shut and turns. “Seriously? Is me telling you to cut the crap an open invitation to ogle me?”
“No, but you wearing a dress that short and bendin’ over is.”
Her lips thin. “And you wonder why I won’t go out with you.”
“Maybe I’m not bothered.”
“Yeah?” She rests her hands flat on the table opposite me and leans over. “So why’ve you been looking at me all evening like I’m a math puzzle you can’t figure out?”
“Because you confuse the fuck out of me.” I hold her gaze.
“One night you don’t want me. The next, you’re in my arms, fucking whimpering
into my mouth. Then not even twenty-four hours later, you’re tellin’ me where
to go. That’s why I keep looking at you.” My eyes drop to her tits. “That and you’re
hot as hell.”
She stares at me until I bring my eyes back up to hers.
“Wow. And that right there is why I just told you ‘no’ when you asked me out.”
She pushes off the table and stalks away from me.
“What the hell are you so mad for?” I get up and follow her out to the back yard. “You’re the one sending me more messages than I can keep up with!”
“Then this is the last one!” she yells, turning to face me.
“No. That’s the message, Corey, all right? I can’t go out with you. I cannot be
seen in public with you. I do not need the media craziness that will come with
being associated with you.”
“You’re Grace Veronica’s daughter. They photograph you getting a coffee, for fuck’s sake!”
“And that’s why I don’t need more attention!” She runs her fingers through her blonde hair. “I just don’t, okay?”
“Why? It makes no sense.”
“It does to me.” Her eyes soften and she wraps her arms around her waist. “It’s dangerous for me, okay? I can’t explain why, so you have to accept that as it is. You have to take my no for a no and just leave it alone.”
“See, that’s where the problem is. I can’t,” I say, moving
closer to her. She doesn’t move. “I wanted you the moment I saw you in the bar.
I wanted to fuck you, Leah. I still do. I’d love nothin’ more than to have your
body beneath mine right fuckin’ now. But you turned me down with that sassy
mouth of yours, and now I’m intrigued by you.”
“Intrigued by me? There’s nothing to be intrigued by. I’m pretty boring.”
“You’re wrong,” I mutter, dipping my face close to hers without touching her. “I want to get under your skin, darlin’. I want to consume you. Even if it’s only for a night. I want to finish what I set out to start when I walked up to you in that bar.”
“You can’t.” She swallows.
“I can and I will,” I echo her words from earlier. “I won’t leave you alone, Leah. I will pursue you until I get what I want. Until I get you.”
“You won’t. Get me.”

 

I cup her jaw and brush my nose along it. “I want you, Leah.
And I always get what I want.”

When Ryan Matthews meets Julia Abbott for the first time at Stanford University, he immediately knows she will change his life.

As the bond between them grows stronger, they are both miserable as they are forced to watch as they each date other people.

excerpt

 

~Ryan
The biggest moment of my life found me unexpectedly. It crept up softly, and settled around me like a fuzzy blanket. A mere whisper; it hit me like a sledgehammer. At the time, I knew it was significant, but I didn’t realize just how those few seconds would change absolutely everything: how one brief glance could leave such an indelible stamp on the remainder of my life. It would become a contradiction; an unstoppable force that would send me reeling out of my control, churning and shredding my emotions, but create the most incredible contentment I’d ever feel. Contentment that could wrap me up in a warm, safe place or devastate me to the core and leave my heart in shambles. It would become years of want and pain, lust and love… It would hurt like the deepest hell, but become the most euphoric and precious ecstasy I’d ever know. I’d never forget that day, that moment; that glance.
It would wreck me. It would make me.

I’m a single mother of one daughter, Olivia. She’s amazing in every way.

I was born in the Midwestern United States and educated at a private university where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Administration.

I’ve always been creative with art, music, theater and writing. I decided to write a story as a way to build a network for a business venture. The reader support of my stories and my overwhelming desire to find out where my characters would take me, soon had the writing morphing the business. No one was more shocked than I. When readers began nominating my work for online awards, it took my breath away and only made me love it more. It soon became clear that writing was, and should be, my focus.

~~ 4 Stars ~~

Pulled Beneath is an emotional story about a girl who’s world is turned upside down when a tragic event takes her away her parents and leaves her alone. Not only has she lost her parents but she has found out she had a family that she never knew and that everything she thought to be true were all lies.

This is the first book by Marni Mann that I have read and I have to say I found it quite enjoyable. It is the first book in the series, but each of the books can be read as a standalone. I thought the author did a fantastic job with developing the storyline and the characters. I was a little nervous for a bit, because I thought this story was taking on a different route, but I am glad to say my thoughts were completely wrong. I felt the pace and flow of the story was great. It wasn’t to slow and nothing was rushed. The storyline was unique enough to keep my interest all the way through and she even threw in some twists I didn’t see coming and could never have guessed.

My heart really broke for Drew….she had just lost her parents to horrific tragedy and then she is tossed into a world she knew nothing about. She had known that her mom and dad were from Maine, but never knew why they left or what had happened. She thought that her grandparents had died years ago. That was not the case. Once she received the call to come to Maine because she was left something by her grandparents, Drew was taken back. She is then thrown into this town, where everyone knew of her mom, but no one was talking. During this time she meets both Brady and Saint (aka Justin). She is drawn to Saint and has a fondness for Brady. Although the two guys can’t stand each other. Over the course of the story we find out why. We also find out just how broken both Brady and Saint are also. I really liked both of the guys, but I also had problems with both of them. I really thought all these characters were relatable and believable.

We also meet Rae (Brady’s BFF and Saint’s Ex.) and Gianna (Drew’s BFF). Rae is the character in the second book of this series. We get to know w a little bit about her and her past with Brady and Saint, we also see a not so nice side of her. I am really hoping that we see a better side to her in her book otherwise I am not sure how much I will like her. Gianna is the BFF everyone wants. She was so supportive of Drew and told her what she needed to hear without holding anything back. I would love to read a story about her and maybe Brady?!?!?!?! (crosses fingers)

I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking for an emotional story that also touches on some tough subjects. I will say my only disappointment about this book was that it was light on the love story part of the book. I would’ve liked to have seen Drew and Saint together sooner and for a longer period of time. There was a lot of push and pull with them and I felt a little cheated by their romance. Still not enough to completely ruin the story for me.

synopsis

 

Storms can’t last forever…can they?

For five long years, Rae Ryan has lived in a storm over which she has no control. Little by little, everything has been taken away from her—her job, her relationship, her best friend and her home. Plagued by nightmares and a terrible family secret, she carries her scars as much on the inside as she does on the outside.

Hart Booker, another disappointment from her past, returns to Bar Harbor and shelters her from the rain. He reminds Rae that forgiveness is possible, happiness can be found on the other side of darkness, and beauty rests beneath her scars. But a sinister figure lingering in the background seems determined to pull Rae back into a past she’s been trying to outrun. Can she survive the storm and become part of the light she so desperately desires? Or is she destined to remain
Pulled Within?

Recommended for mature audiences due to explicit language, sexual abuse, disturbing situations, and drug use.

 

 

review

 

* A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review *

~~ 4 Healing Stars ~~

Pulled Within is the second book in Marni Mann’s series, but can be read as a standalone. This book was truly it’s own story. I was shocked at how little some of the other characters from the first book weren’t in this book.

I enjoyed this book and the author’s writing style. She knows how to create an engaging storyline that keeps your attention all the way through. I think the only thing that I didn’t like was that to me this seemed more like Brady’s story of healing then it was Rae’s. I thought Brady’s storyline took up too much space. I understand that Rae and Brady were BFF’s, but I would’ve liked the healing to be more about Rae and her past. I thought it took to long for her past to be revealed, so it made the healing part of her story a little rushed. I did like that we got bits of her past through flashbacks. Normally I think flashbacks are risky, but in this story they worked. I was also happy to see that Rae and Hart didn’t take too long to reconnect. I liked watching their relationship unfold throughout most of the book. I truly felt their feelings were genuine.

We met Rae in book 1 Pulled Beneath. She was only in that book every now and then, we don’t really get to know Rae until this book when everything is revealed. Rae is a troubled person and a broken soul who is determined to help everyone in her life and fix their issues, without really looking at herself and her issues. Rae had a tragic event happen to her and her family when she was younger and her life has revolved around 12/17. She just reminds herself that she needs to get through that day. So besides this tragic event she was dating Hart (in high school) and her disappears without so much as a word, leaving Rae hurt and confused. But now 5 years later Hart is back in Bar Harbor and determined to get Rae back. I really liked Hart….he was the right mix of Alpha male and sweet and tender. Although I did find his reason for leaving in the past kind of weak and uneventful. I was kind of expecting something a little bigger. I did like that even though Hart knew Rae was hurting inside, he never gave up on her and didn’t push her. He just helped her through the tough times until all was revealed Rae was truly on a self-destructive path until she reconnected with Hart and he helped get her on the right track.

I would recommend this book to everyone who is looking for that second chance romance and a book about learning to heal yourself, so that you can put the past behind you.

abouttheauthor
km
Kirsty Moseley has always been a passionate reader since she was a little girl, devouring books overnight, barely sleeping and paying for it at school the next day. Writing has come similarly to her and once she discovered Wattpad, she finally plucked up the courage to post one of her stories. Seven million reads later, she self-published her debut novel THE BOY WHO SNEAKS IN MY BEDROOM WINDOW, which later became one of 10 Finalists for the 2012 Goodreads’ Choice Awards, Best YA Fiction. Shocked and overwhelmed by the response, she published her second novel ALWAYS YOU a few months later.

If she had to sum herself up in one word, it would probably be ‘daydreamer’ – but unlike most of her school teachers, she doesn’t necessarily view that as a bad thing. After all, she read somewhere once that books are like waking dreams….

She lives in Norfolk, England with her husband and son.

J.B. Morgan resides in Oregon where she’s a wife and a stay-at-home-mother of two. When she’s not writing she can be found carting her kids everywhere, volunteering at their school, busy with her church calling, or reading. She loves the NY Yankees, traveling, her family and chocolate.Two reasons that helped inspire J.B. Morgan to try her hand at writing:

1. When she was younger, she would make up hero-rescuing stories in her head, revolving
around boys she had crushes on at school.

2. She missed reading about nice, normal, good men and books with a story line.


J.B. likes to write clean New Adult & Contemporary Romance stories. Her up-coming books are mostly suitable for older teen- YA readers as well as those in the New Adult/Contempt genre.  She definitely knows how to write a swoon worthy leading male.

synopsis

Blood.

That’s the only memory he carries from a childhood he does not remember. And now it is all he knows. Blood is his life.

Knox Bishop has done a lot of horrible things, all at the command of the man who holds his leash. It’s a matter of loyalty for him. Allegiance to the man who saved his life when he was a child. So he goes where he is needed and does what he is told. He tortures. He kills. He kills. He tortures. It is an unrelenting cycle that he constantly craves and can never quite satisfy.

Until her.

Eighteen year old Lacey Barnes distributes her assets to fund her dreams. Medical school is the end game and she is determined to get there by any means necessary. But a family member’s careless mistake derails her plans and now she must pay a price in order to save him.

She goes to Knox willingly offering him the only valuable thing she has. Herself. In doing so he allows her into his world, a world filled with darkness but rather than being scared it intrigues her. It lures her, calls to something in her that she hadn’t known existed until he awakened it.

Every bit of his flaws is reflected in her and Knox will do anything to keep her in the darkness with him.

excerpt

Lacey

Sordid words echo off the sullied walls of the motel room, a disjointed symphony of grunts and groans as he labors for release. The sourness of his breath, the hot wet beads of his sweat, and the unrelenting grip of his fingernails burrowing painfully into my skin is all too familiar—a necessary evil of the oldest profession in the world. With his mouth poised at my ear, he whispers words meant to turn me on, and I arch my back, rotate my hips, and drive back against his cock to show that I enjoy his dirty little words. He likes it when I do that, pays a little extra when I play the bitch in heat. He smacks my ass to get me going, a precursor to his release, and I smile thinly. I send a silent thanks to the prostitute gods that it’s almost over. He’s done in a short countdown, filling the condom, and I’m out of the shadow of his collapsing weight. He lands in an unceremonious heap across the bed in an attempt to catch his breath.

“You were amazing, baby,” he pants, raising his head slightly to look at me. “As usual.” He grins and drops his head back on the bed with a great sigh.

“Glad you enjoyed yourself,” I reply tonelessly, twisting my arms to fasten my bra strap. I slip on my threadbare T-shirt and shimmy into a black mini skirt that hides very little from the outside world. Stepping into the pair of black and white low tops, I feel the wad of cash pushing back against my toes, a clear indication that it’s been a good night. Keeping my earnings in my shoe is a great hiding place because it’s probably the last place anyone would look if I ever got mugged.

“I’m out of here,” I say as a farewell, grabbing the two hundred-dollar bills on the nightstand on my way out of the cheap motel room.

synopsis

What Marissa Johnson never expected when she came to Illinois to tour her brother’s Alma mater was meet the man who would haunt her dreams.
Once introduced, she knew she would do anything to stay close to him and hope for a chance.

Mike Harrison never expected to fall for his old college friends little sister. Defending his heavy weight title and having any woman he wanted wasn’t enough to keep him away any longer.

Two years came and went while neither of them acted on their wants or desires. All of that changes when someone’s grief brings the two together into a situation they can’t ignore any longer.

But what happens when insecurity, jealousy, and lack of faith come into play? Can these two overcome the obstacles thrown in their path or will it all come crashing down around them?
