synopsis

One year ago, I became a missing person. I left everything behind—family, friends, school. It seemed like a good idea at the time. My only option, really, until I realized running from a police officer isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

It’s been exactly three-hundred and sixty-five days since I left home, but I’m finally ready to take the step I should have taken a year ago. I’m done hiding. I’m done running. I’m going to take my life back.

It was supposed to be easy. A meeting with Jason Pierce, a private investigator, was set up for me. All I had to do was go to him, let him do his thing, and then I could go home, or so I thought.

That is, until I met Jason and things got … complicated.

~ 5 Stars ~

Talk about a book that was captivating, intriguing and unputdownable!!!!

Two Truths and A Lie by Ashley Stoyanoff was filled with mystery, intrigue, suspense, romance and a very HOT Hero!!! Ashley knows the perfect mix when it comes to writing an amazing book. Nothing overpowered this story. We had just the right amount of mystery and suspense to keep you turning the pages, and enough romance to make you swoon and root for Elena and Jason. This book isn’t over done with sex either, which I really liked. Don’t get me wrong there is sex in this story, but not until much later in the book, but this story didn’t really need the sex to make it steamy and make you want to finish their story. She even added in some great secondary characters that had me laughing.

When an author can touch on that many feelings and emotions in a book, that to me is what makes it a 5 star read.

Now as for the storyline….yes it is similar to others I have seen before in this genre and was fairly predictable, but Ashley was able to add her own spin to the story to make it unique and worth reading. She knew when to throw in some twists to throw the reader off and make the story interesting. She also created great characters. Elena and Jason were fantastic characters to me. They were relatable and fun to read about. They weren’t broken, but that’s not to say they didn’t have some trouble in the past. Both had trust issues, but it is completely warranted. I would say that this book was an insta-love type story, but the way Elena and Jason’s story played out, it felt believable. Nothing seemed rushed.

This book is part of a series, but it is a completed story with a HEA. I believe the other books will be about some of the secondary characters we meet in this book. I am really hoping that in the other books Elena and Jason will still make an appearance. I want to see them again and see their HEA.

This is my first book by Ashley Stoyanoff and it won’t be my last. I look forward to reading other books by her and the other books in this series.

EXCERPT from SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS:

SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS, Book One in a brand new erotic romance series, Sinful Nights! In the high-heat, high-stakes, high-glamour style of the Seductive Nights series…

            She turned around and pushed hard on the ladies room door. But she felt his hand around her wrist, and he yanked her back, spinning her in one quick move, so she was chest to chest with him. She felt his breath on her.

“It did work out well for me. I’m also not the same person I was ten years ago,” he said, then did that thing again — that thing where he undressed her with his eyes, where he fucked her completely with his hot, dirty stare. “And you obviously have become a different person too.”

He tugged her, pulled her closer. His heart pounded against her breasts. His hand gripped her lower back.

He felt so good that she didn’t resist because her stupid body was stuck in the past, was living ten years ago when he alone was the one who could help her, who could free her, who could take away all the pain in one touch.

But he hadn’t, had he?

He’d caused more in his wake.

In his cruel exit.

She jammed a hand against his chest. His strong, firm chest that she knew intimately. The fucker. “I had reasons. Real reasons. Life and death reasons,” she said in a low hiss.

He shut his eyes briefly, looking pained. He sighed heavily, then somehow his arms were around her, and this time his touch wasn’t sexual. It wasn’t lustful. It was an embrace. From someone who knew nearly everything about her.

“Are you okay? Are you safe?” he asked in a whisper into her hair.

A tear had the audacity to slip out of her eye. To slide down her cheek, and fall onto his shoulder. It was a Pavlovian reaction. Too many tears had fallen on that shoulder.

“Yes,” she said quietly, with a nod. “I am. It’s fine. It’s all fine.”

He pulled back, tucked a hand under her chin, and lifted her face. She was so close to him she could trace the outline of his jaw, could run the pad of her finger over his stubble, his unbearably sexy eight-o-’clock shadow. She could drag her fingernails through his hair, soft, thick strands that simply had belonged between her hands. She could look in his eyes as he moved in her, those deep, soulful eyes that understood her. Somehow, he was rough and gentle, he was charming and fierce, he was funny and dirty. He was the man she’d wanted to spend the rest of her life with.

“Are you sure?” he asked, so much tenderness and worry in his tone.

She gathered herself, and willed that obstinate organ in her chest to stop beating in double time. She informed her traitorous body to stop trembling just from being near him. “Yes. I’m sure.”

He let her go. He tipped his forehead back to the bar. “I should get back out there. They’ll start wondering. See you in a few.”

And he walked away.

Just like the last time she’d seen him.

She pressed her lips together, and breathed out hard. She pushed open the ladies room door, walked to the sink, dropped her hands onto the cool tile and let out the longest, hardest breath. She hoped to hell this was the only time she’d have to deal with Brent Nichols.

When she was near to him like that, she couldn’t think straight. She could only feel. And that was far too dangerous for her heart.

About SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS:

A sexy, suspenseful new romance novel from Lauren Blakely, author of the New York Times Bestselling Seductive Nights series….

She was the one who got away…

Ten years ago, Brent Nichols let the love of his life slip through his fingers. It’s his greatest regret, especially since she’s all but disappeared. But when the gorgeous and captivating woman walks into his life unexpectedly, he’s determined to win her back. Whatever it takes, he won’t make the same mistake twice.

Easier said than done…

Shannon Paige has hardened her heart to the man she was once engaged to be married to. After the way he left, and after the hell she’s been through with her checkered family, there’s no way she’s letting him into her life again. The problem is, the second she sees him, he’s more handsome and charming than before. And she’s torn between wanting to fight with him and wanting to sleep with him – maybe both. Soon they fall into each other’s arms, consumed with a desire that burns through the years.

But if these two fiery lovers are going to have a real second chance at this kind of intense, passionate, bone-deep love, he’ll have to give her his whole heart, and she’ll have to give up all the secrets from her messy past.

And that messy past is about to spill over into her carefully constructed present…

 

SWEET SINFUL NIGHTS is book one in SINFUL NIGHTS, a four-book series. Each book will follow a new couple.

Forced to re-evaluate her feelings, Bree is left alone with a heavy heart and the realization that Drew’s nightmare changed everything.
The effects of his trauma once again surfacing, Drew had no idea how volatile his actions were until it was too late. He must work to rebuild trust with everyone around him, all while participating in vigorous therapy and being separated from Bree. When a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity presents itself with impeccably poor timing, Drew has some tough decisions ahead.
Can he heal the wounds his past has created and quiet the demons that haunt him? Can he repair the damage done with his love or will he give up?
Discover if it’s all too much and Drew ends up…
Tapped.

 

Author’s Note: Tapped is a continuation of Totaled, the first book in the Totaled series. It is highly recommended to read these books in sequential order. Due to mature content, profane language, and sexual situations, this book is recommended for ages 18 and up.

 

Something told me to walk around to the back and my legs took me. I followed the skinny path within the dunes and sea oats on the side of his house until he came into view. Standing with his back to me, he watched the water as the sun rose higher and higher above the horizon, the colors beautifully framing his silhouette. He turned his head ever so slightly, I guess sensing that I was there, and then turned around completely.
I froze.
I was unable to take another step for a few seconds as we stared at each other. His posture relaxed, relieved to see me before him, and he advanced toward me. I walked forward, my stomach in knots of nervousness, and he matched me step for step until we were mere feet apart. The salty sea breeze blew violently around us both, coming off of the crashing waves and onto our skin. The second we entered each other’s space, my world went silent. I didn’t hear the water or smell the ocean. I didn’t feel the wind on my face or the sand under my feet. I was only in tune to him.
He swallowed hard, his eyes sharp and assessing, darting around my face as he took me in. They roamed and finally settled on my cheek just underneath my left eye; his shoulders fell as he exhaled. His right arm reached for me, stopping midway and then slowly continuing up, his eyes asking for permission. I lowered my chin and leaned into him as his fingertips grazed over my skin, tracing the scar he had given me. My eyes closed at the intensity of the moment.
He moved a few inches closer and cradled my jaw in his hand, urging me to open up and look at him—to really see him. I did and his eyes brimmed with tenderness and compassion. I looked into them, trying to memorize every shade of green, every fleck of gold, not knowing what the future held. I just knew that if I was never able to lay eyes on him again, this was the image that I wanted to remember. My gentle and loving Drew, normally stuck inside a giant, rough exterior, was now exploding out, his shrapnel penetrating my soul.

~ 4 “Redeeming” Stars ~
Tapped is the second book in Stacey Grice’s series. This book is a continuation of book 1, Totaled. Tapped takes off right where Totaled ended. This is NOT a standalone book. You definitely need to read the first book before going into this one or you will be completely lost.Just like in Stacey’s debut book, I thought this book was an enjoyable and emotional read. For only being her second book published I think Stacey did a fantastic job completing Bree and Drew’s Journey. This book deals with a serious subject matter, such as PTSD. I thought Stacey did an amazing job getting the reader into the head of a person who suffers from this disorder and what they go through on a day to day basis. She accurately portrayed that when dealing with PTSD you have to remember that it isn’t a quick and easy fix….it’s not a sprint but a marathon. But as long as you have loving, loyal and supportive people around you can get through anything. My only negative with this story, is that I was hoping to see more of Drew and Bree together. I wanted to see them happy together for more of the book. It’s hard to explain what I mean without spoiling the storyline, so I guess you’ll just have to read the book to understand what I am saying ;) This in no way took away my enjoyment of the book.Like in book 1, Tapped is told in Dual POV. I think that was the right direction to go with this story, because we really needed to be in both characters heads to appreciate everything they are going through. Drew and Bree do not have an easy road ahead of them in this book. They definitely have a lot to overcome and work out. I have to say that I really loved Bree in this book. She was such a strong character. After everything that happened in book 1, she never faltered when it came to her love for Drew. No matter who told her to move on and forget about him, she wasn’t willing to do that. I loved watching her be his rock in this journey. Drew was such a broken soul in this book….it was heartbreaking watching everything he went through and all that he had to overcome. I was glad to see that even after a small time of weakness, with the help of therapy, he was able to get things back on track for him and learned to love himself and realize that the things in the past weren’t his fault.

We get to see all the same secondary characters in this book. I have to be honest and say that I trouble with a couple of the secondaries in this book. Pat (Bree’s Father) and Sue (Bree’s BFF) I really wasn’t happy with them for the majority of the book. Pat was just an overbearing parent, that I thought Bree should have told to stuff it. She was an adult and he treated her like she was a teenager. I understood why he reacted the way he did, but he also needed to learn to let her go and make her own mind up. I was glad to see that Sue eventually came around, but I still think she was a little hard on Bree and Drew also. I would’ve liked to learn a little more about Liam in this book. There were questions raised about him in my mind while reading this book and I don’t feel they were every really answered. It’s not anything that is bothersome, I use felt more could’ve been revealed about his feelings during this book.

I would recommend this book/series to anyone who is a fan of a MMA story. I think everyone should give this author a shot, because I know that I will continue to read whatever she publishes.

Under the Influence KINDLE

Dalton,

I loved you once. A love I thought irrevocable. A love I mistakenly believed could transcend both time and circumstance. Under the influence of my dimwitted, naïve, traitorous heart, I became intoxicated with what I now know was simply a figment of my self-indulgent imagination. So drunk on the feeling, I couldn’t see what was right in front of my face. So foolishly enamored, I blindly followed my heart into the depths of an emotion that would ravage me.

Years later, I know now what I wish I knew then. I am stronger. Smarter. Tougher. I will not allow myself to be broken again.

I loved you.

I raged for you.

I wept for you.

And now, I’m letting you go.

 

Author’s Note:  Under the Influence is the journey of two childhood friends that spans the course of five pivotal years in their lives. It is a story about their discovery of true friendship as it blossoms into first love, their experience of crucial sacrifice and ultimate betrayal, and their endurance of agonizing heartbreak on the way to finding lasting redemption.

Synopsis

It’s not cocky when you’ve got the goods to back it up.

Lust-maker. Pleasure giver. Fantasy creator. I can blow your mind in five seconds flat — but trust me, you’ll want this to last all night.

There’s not a woman in the city who can resist me. Except one.

Now she’s got a proposition: Seven days. Every position. No strings attached.

She wants to know what she’s been missing.

Who am I to say no?

Excerpt

“I’d invite you back to my place, but it seems you’re already here,” I say.

“Take me upstairs,” she pants. “Now.”

I carry her to the bedroom. It’s big, with glass walls on either side that look out over the ocean on one side and the city on the other. The bed is shallow, and I’m so revved up I nearly throw her onto it. Our bodies are still dripping wet, but I don’t care. I can barely think, her body’s turning me into a madman.

I climb across the bed toward her and peel her lacy underwear off. When it reaches her feet, she kicks it to the floor. I grab her hair in an expert fistful. She moans, tilting her head back as her eyes start to close. I stop to watch her and she looks at me.

She’s soft and feminine under my hands, her beautiful body weak against mine. I roll her on top of me in one swift motion and push her head down towards my hard cock, sticking ramrod straight up into the air. I guide her mouth to it, and she wraps her lips around the head. They suck gently, and I hold her just on the edge, just where her lips can kiss it, until I can hold it no more. I want her wetness, her hotness. I force her to take in the rest, pressing my cock into the side of her cheek. Her teeth graze the sensitive curves, but I’m so hot for this girl even the mild pain feels good.

With her head under my palm, I guide her thrusts, forcing her into my rhythm. I pull her ass around so she’s sideways in front of me, then land a sharp, loud smack on the round cheek. She moans, her body jerking. I rub the redness that emerges on the erotic curve of her backside, and as her mouth pumping gathers pace I smack her again. Harder.

synopsis

First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels.

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward–full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from… But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can’t ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her–the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants…

review

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

~ 4 Solid Stars ~

I haven’t read many Motorcycle Club stories, but I have to say, if I am going to pick one up, I would definitely turn to Joanna Wylde. She knows how to write a really good MC book, plus her Heroes are FANTASTIC!!!. I always know that if I pick up one of her books I am going to really enjoy it :)

Silver Bastards is the first book in a spin off series from her Reaper’s Series. Now don’t worry if you haven’t read the Reaper’s series, this series is completely different and about a new motorcycle club. The only reason it is a spin off is because Puck was introduced in one of the Reaper’s books. We also do see some of the Reaper’s characters in this book, but it doesn’t spoil anything of that series either. To me this book had a different feel from her other MC series and I really liked that. We didn’t get another series like her first one. To me this book was more about Becca and her journey and troubles, than it was about the MC. We did see the going ons within the club, but it just wasn’t the focus of this story. It’s hard to explain without spoiling the story, so I guess you’ll need to read this book to understand what I am saying ;)

One thing I really like about Joanna’s writing is that she gives us the right mix between the raw/grittiness of a MC book, but still is able to show the sweet side of her characters. Nothing is over the top, she makes her stories believable. Plus she knows how to write a sex scene without it being over the top raunchy, but will also melt your panties.

I think my only negative about this book would be regarding the heroine Becca. She drove me crazy by the end of the book. She had some serious issues, not that I blame her, she had a horrible childhood with her mom and stepdad, but those issues dragged on throughout the whole story, even after Puck proved he wasn’t like her stepdad. She just kept constantly trying to push Puck away and that got old by the end. It didn’t stop me from really enjoying this book, but it was why I couldn’t give it 5 stars.

Now PUCK on the other hand…..YUMMY!!!! There is just something about a strong Alpha male who is direct and to the point, but still knows how to sweet talk his woman. I can’t help but fall in love with him. He really made this story for me. I also loved that this book was written in dual POV, so we got to get into Puck’s head.

Now don’t get me wrong….things were not smooth sailing for Becca and Puck….their relationship starts off really rocky and continues that way even 5 years later, but it was great watching them break down the walls they both built around themselves. I absolutely loved the ending to this book…..I had a huge smile on my face.

After reading this book, I believe this is the start of another great MC series for Joanna Wylde and I can’t wait to read the others. You are going to want to read this book if you are a fan of Joanna’s and MC books.

excerpt

Ignoring him, I settled back on my stool and surveyed the room. We sat in Becca’s section, and what I saw wasn’t making me happy. I knew she was a good waitress, but she’d just started here and it showed. Not only had she fucked up several orders, she didn’t quite seem to get the rhythm of the bar. That wasn’t my problem, though.

My problem was that despite these fuckups, nobody seemed to mind. I had a nasty suspicion this was due to her perky tits, friendly smile, and tight little ass that seriously just needed a bite taken right out of it.

She really, really needed to get a new job—every man in the place wanted her. Including me. Especially me. I hated them. All of them. I shifted uncomfortably, because just like every time I shared a room with her, my pants had gotten tight.

Torture. Becca was just so fucking fine on every level, and not just her looks. There was something about the way she carried herself . . . I couldn’t put my finger on it. Like she was dancing through life to some song nobody else could hear. Never met another woman like her—she wasn’t just sexy, she was a survivor and I admired that.

She’d grown up so much since the first time I’d met her. Bigger boobs, a nice fullness to her ass that was nowhere close to fat but would be perfect to hold tight while I fucked her. Her lips had plumped, too, and over the years she’d gained a sparkle in her eyes that turned her from pretty to 100 percent spectacular.

Not to mention how she’d tasted.

Nearly blew in my pants when I’d taken that mouth. Just the memory got me hard. Make that harder. Fucking basket case.

When I’d pulled up to find her sitting outside with Collins, a thousand murder scenarios ran through my mind. And yeah, I know I covered that already, but if anything ever deserved empha- sis, this was it. Collins needed to die. I didn’t care how nice he was. After that I’d throw Becca on the back of my bike and make a run for the hills . . .

Okay, so there were a few problems with the plan, the top one being she hated me. Or she should—I’d certainly given her cause. Boonie nudged me.

“Did I mention you’re pathetic? You want her, take her. Other- wise let it go because you’re an embarrassment to all men in general and to the Silver Bastards in particular.”

Greg
isn’t a bad looking guy. He’s not even slightly bad looking. In fact, he’s
extremely good looking with his brutish looks. But that’s the thing – he’s just
too beefy for my taste. He’s thick all over. Well, from what I can see, and
what I’ve heard, he is. Which is good for him since most people think buff guys
usually suffer from teeny weeny syndrome and they’re just trying to
overcompensate in other ways.
His
head is typically filled with blonde locks, but he shaved it off this summer.
Maybe it was some sort of rugby initiation or whatever weird sport he’ll be
playing in college.
“Excuse
me, Greg?”
His
head swings my way as if he was just waiting for me to call his name. His smile
is wide and his hazel eyes are bright. He’s genuinely a happy guy. And that’s
what I like about him. That’s why I’m able to look past his player ways and
enjoy his company.
I
do a quick glance up his muscly body from feet to face. His tan, smooth-looking
legs are crossed at the ankle, reaching the other side of the truck as they’re
stretched out. The colorful, geometric print trunks fully engulf his thighs, which
is a plus. Guys shouldn’t wear more fitted clothes than I do. Then there’s his
tank top. The non-existent fabric bunches loosely in the middle of his torso.
“Yes,
Quinn?” he smirks.
“Your
chesticles are showing.”
He
glances down and laughs. “Is that a problem?”
“No.”
I pop a grape in my mouth. “I just can’t stop staring.”
He
laughs even harder and I try my best to refrain from it myself. I’m not looking
to choke on a grape as we drive down the highway.
“Make
em’ pop,” I demand as I lift my sunglasses to the top of my head for a better
view.
“Do
what?”
“You
know.” I sit my grapes down and hold my hands in front of my own chest, moving
my hands up and down. “Make them pop, dance, jiggle. Hell, make them rain for
all I care. They have to be capable of doing something cool.”
“Oh,
hell yeah. I’ve had that shit down since the seventh grade.” He straightens his
back and positions his arms in some weird flex in front of him. Then he begins
to make them pop, drop and lock it. I giggle like a little girl as I watch. His
face makes it all the better as he seems to be straining. He looks constipated.
Without
any inclination, I toss a grape at his tits. And with perfect precision he
bounces his man boob just in time to deflect it. I play catch with his chest a
little while longer before finally putting my earbuds in and relaxing.

Hot, seductive, enticing.



He’s at least ten years older than her seventeen years, and he knows exactly what he’s doing to her with that look.



Walking away would be the smart thing to do…

Synopsis

The tables have turned. Now I have the power—and it’s his turn to beg…

Everyone wants to be me.

Maybe it’s the sway of my skirt or the way I flip my hair, but I don’t care. Even though their attention is the last thing I crave, I just can’t stop. I dominate the track, the speed rattles my bones, and the wind and the crowd screams my name.

I’m her. The girl driver. The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do.

They all talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate? When is he coming back to town, Tate?

But I refuse to care too much. Because when Jared does come home, I won’t be here.

Tatum Brandt is gone. I’m someone new.
