Blurb:

Temperance Blanco served to bring order to her family and small town. She thought if she practiced her craft and lead the immoral on a path to restraint, life would be perfect. What she didn’t count on was her intense draw to her employer, the handsome new night club owner—Raiden Spellman.

Luna Lopez hits her stride!

 

Where do I begin with Luna Lopez’s upcoming release? She tackles multiple heavy topics like growth and maturity, forbidden love, owning one’s sexuality, and walking into unexpected relationships. She manages measuring all the right ingredients together and mixing in the proper amounts of sexy, snarky, and suspense creating a multifaceted work based on complex themes which blew my socks off.

I sliced off a taste of the raw dough for this piece, thinking the masterpiece swirled around the idea of a student-teacher taboo prose piece. Where My Heart Lies digs deeper into the final baked good Lopez delivered. The rich ingredients mold together into a savory blend of goodness including mending broken hearts, dissolving a marriage—which is not done through falling out of love but rather recognizing types of love—and strengthening a strained relationship. She cleverly mixes in a scorned ex-lover and a fresh look at a misjudged relationship. Then, Lopez set her words to the proper temperature of sexy time and sprinkled it in areas with enough spice to pull out all the emotions from anger, fear, and guilt to hope, love and laughter. This bakes into a well thought out treat from page one to the end.

Her characters develop in a rich, batter of connection through growth and maturity. The themes dive deep into the richness of discovering what one seeks out of a life lived to its fullest. She truly hit the baker’s dozen of novels with Where the Heart Lies and is a must-read.

Willow Olivia Walker is a newly single Cambridge University student heading home for the summer holidays, following a bitter split with her controlling and manipulative ex-girlfriend, Kristina.

Initially dismayed to discover her eccentric parents have hired the beautiful Georgia as a live-in nanny for her two younger sisters, she treads carefully, but slowly, a friendship blossoms that has the potential to bloom into something special.

Discovered in flagrante by her over-bearing mother, Willow packs her bags and returns to Cambridge, intent on spending the remainder of the summer months preparing for the academic year ahead.

A chance encounter between Willow and barely separated university professor, Francesca Marten, is the start of a friendship that extends beyond the confines of student and teacher.

In Francesca, Willow finds a lover who knows what she wants, but for Francesca, Willow is the epitome of the young, carefree girl she left behind twenty years before.

As Willow and Francesca’s friendship blossoms, danger lurks around the corner, as somebody is watching their every move, intent on revenge for what they perceive as the ultimate betrayal.

Together, Willow, Francesca, and a host of others dig deeper to find the tormenter threatening to derail their future paths.

Bio Author Luna Lopez

My name is Luna Lopez, and I’m from the South West of England.

Shea nails this rockstar romance!

 

Jayla and Austin come from the wrong side of the tracks. They grew up together, holding one another up, through the tough times in their socio-economically depressed neighborhood. Poverty brought them together and broke them up, but they each paved a path of success on different scales.

A decade later and a past hidden deep, they meet again under different circumstances which play on their meager beginnings. Austin, the famous rockstar, and Jayla, a private security team expert, are thrown together as Austin, and his band, is in need of protection. Auston only has his eye on his old friend who he refuses to let go this time around.

Kacey Shea rocks the socks off this bad boy rockstar and humble security officer. She develops Austin and Jayla in a slow burn wrapped with scars from the past and a refreshing newness to a couple comforted by blending the old and the new. Shea writes Jayla with a tough as nails attitude but leaves her kryptonite dangling in front of her. A bit of a paradox of sorts, as Austin is the wild card to Jayla’s rock solid stability. Together they fill in the missing years and must decide if this is their time or if they are passing in the night one last time. Shea nails this rockstar romance!

JAYLA

I tip my chin up, letting my head fall back against his stomach. I catch his grin and let my own lips curve up playfully. Or at least, it starts that way. Under the heat of his stare and with his hands still moving across my shoulders in deep, sure circles, my body tenses for an entirely different reason.

His touch feels intimate.

The way he’s studying me from beneath those dark lashes is intense. He doesn’t look away, and I couldn’t if I tried. “Honestly, Jay, what can I do? You shouldn’t carry all this stress.”

“I—” want you to touch me. The words catch in my throat and hammer in my chest. My pulse gallops and I press my legs together as the need between them—the need for him—obliterates any rational thought.

I almost say those words aloud.

By the heat in his stare, I wonder if he feels it too.

“Jay,” he whispers. My name on his lips is full of the same tortured longing I feel down to my core. We barely scratched the surface of this sexual tension when we were teens, both too young and too naïve to fully understand the power of it.

Now. Right here. I swear those same feelings have multiplied and grown. It’s overwhelming. Terrifying as hell. And yet . . . I can’t help but arch my back even more. I delight in the way his gaze drops to the neckline of my shirt.

His eyes zero in on my chest and his touch becomes feather light as his stare takes in the hard peaks of my nipples straining against the soft cotton fabric. I want him to touch me there. To haul me off this chair and into his arms. I need to taste his lips as they press against mine. Crave it.

“I have an idea,” he whispers so softly that if I weren’t watching his lips I would have missed the words.

“Yeah?”

His hands brush along my arms, down to my elbows and then back up, his fingers so close but not touching the swell of my breasts. “It’s selfless on my part, because you know how giving I am.” He’s teasing. Joking. But it doesn’t kill the chemistry that swirls between us. If anything, it only adds charge to an already building momentum.

His hands feel good, but they’re not enough.

“Your idea?” My gaze waits for his.

“I want you, Jayla.”

“Oh.” Heat pools in my belly. My skin feels flush. And my body, my body wants this and everything he wants to give.

His hands slide up the length of my neck, then still as they cup my face. “I’ll make you feel better. I swear.” He tilts my chin up and my back arches in response. His body leans down over mine, slowly closing the space between our mouths.

“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” I murmur, completely fascinated by the heat in his stare, and the way his tongue swipes across his lips.

“Let me kiss you at least?” He lowers his mouth, his intent as clear as his words. “I’ve been dying to taste those lips. To see if they’re still the same.”

“Um . . .” I should feel caged in. Between the chair and the table, his hands near my throat and his body behind mine, I expect my anxiety to ruin this moment. Only it never comes. Instead, desire and attraction so powerful flood my veins. I almost reach up and grab for him.

“One kiss?” He bends, closing the remaining space until there isn’t more than shared breath between us. All I need to do is close the space, to nod my consent, and his lips will crash on mine.

Realising Kara is the girl for her, Yasmeen is hell-bent on living the life she wants, even if that means going against her father’s wishes.

Holland’s Poems Touch the Human Condition and More!

 

Rev. Rebecca Holland reaches new heights with love, life, regret, and more in her first publication Through My Good Eye: A Memoir in Verse. She allows her poems to sing the song to the unsung heroes in family, feminism, and faith. Through the gift of diverse poetic style, she shows the growth she made along her path as a woman held in her youth by cultural constraints as well as genetic ones. The best part of her penned ink is it weaves in her savior but does not push her beliefs onto others, but allows for the freedoms of belief we all carry upon our own shoulders. A quick beautiful read entwined with the human condition and the perfect savior for the artist behind the words.

Michaelson Finishes His Invitations with a Splash!

Zane Michelson has a knack for twisting the plot and leaving you waiting for the next release. However, each sweet taste of mystery and thrill is laced with a bit of bittersweetness which makes it well worth the read. The By Invitation Only Series follows the lives of Cammie, Zander, and Jensen through a cat and mouse style chess game. It’s filled with deceit, in the most solicitous of ways, denial, with regards to fallen trust, and of course, it wouldn’t be complete without betrayal at the cost of unconditional love. Michaelson creates the trifecta in Cammie, Zander, and Jensen with just the right amount of sex, thrill, and suspense mixed in ingredients.

Belle Brooks is Always Together!

Belle Brooks is the picture perfect jack of all trades author. She’s penned romantic heartbreak, soul-searching drama, psycho mind-bending thrillers, children’s self-esteem builders, and now young adult prose. She is willing to take that leap and put her best foot forward, which is a mighty fine set of shoes got working in her favor.

 

In her latest release, Miss Not Together, Brooks tackles the harsh realities of turning from girl to woman, innocence to maturity, and young love’s confusion into a sweet tale of growth and admiration for the human condition. In Hilary and Grayson she knocks out each end of the teen growth cycle. One paved in innocence and buried in her school to work to avoid growing up, while the other faces survival after tragedy and despair to keep his family going. Grayson is by no means the boy from the wrong side of the tracks, but circumstances leave him in a place where protecting what’s sacred for his family leaves him in a bind.

Hilary unravels through the leap from childhood to adulthood as she deals with her own feelings about her parents, her school, her peers, and her new frenemy relationship with Grayson. Brooks tackles these issues with a dash of humor, a splash of tears, and a pinch of realism which truly suits the genre. Bravo on a job well done with the YA genre and the issues which keep teens not so together!

Meet Hilary Watts: pretty, straight A-student, teachers’ pet, goody two-shoes, totally has it all together—and has never been kissed, or even had a boyfriend for that matter.

Meet Grayson Dymicks: badarse persona, new guy in school, just moved in next door, volatile—and a total jerk.

When Hilary finds herself attracted to the very person she shouldn’t be, she never imagines all her well-placed Jenga blocks will come crashing down—or that her first ever kiss will be with a boy every girl in school wants for themselves.

Hilary’s life is turned upside down and she realises she’s not as put together as she thought. Instead, she’s as totally messed up as all the other teenage girls her age—but is this a romance destined for a happily ever after or a broken heart?

If you love Beth Reekles and John Green, then you will adore Miss Not Together!

Blurb: 
I’ve planned well, studied hard, and dreamed of my future. It keeps me alive, ignoring the things from my painful past. The thing about life is that it can throw a curveball into your path that you can’t anticipate, and plan accordingly.

But life’s cruel. It offers both good and bad, and no time for the right reaction.

My junior year of college should be one of the best but my chance run-in with a loner freshman that harbors deep secrets soon pulls me into her mysterious world.

Unfortunately, her omissions of truth find me in a dangerous place.

Then, I meet Blake Angel. He is one of those curveballs of life…easy on the eyes, and every time we touch, sparks fly. But I can’t. I won’t. I have a game plan, a play-by-play for my future.

Before I realize it, everything has changed. The hidden secrets and lies only confuse me more. Worse, I may not be able to save myself, Samantha Sawyer, from those that now hunt me—and I have no idea why.

CM Genovese MC Series and More!

 

CM Genovese, where does one start? He’s an author who understands the depth of character development and how it moves the plot along as well as suspense and conflict. He also creates a society where the laws are loose, but the judge and juries are decided by the underworlds who rule it.  He challenges the traditional and sorts out the outlaws or rather presiding justice of the outlaws.

Calm’s Storm, the title alone exudes the motif at hand. An adjective which possesses a noun is cleaver and truthful. He does the same with the prequel, Anger’s Fear. Genius! The titles exude a sophistication which traditionally is not seen in many works. He not only breathes life into the titles, but he also hits the literary home run with them.

Link and Tesla’s unique relationship presents a paradox of sorts. Link exemplifies confidence with all that his lawless, restless, and unrefined behaviors. While Tesla shows promise, purity in an unpure society, and freedom. Their ties create a bond which holds the glue together for the MC, but is it strong enough when you throw in a cult, runaways, and a plethora of business deals which could be powder kegs with one misstep? The brilliance in CM Genovese’s details and infusion of literary tricks makes this a read not worth missing!

About the Author:

Love is not always patient. Love is not always kind. It cuts deep, and it scars. It sometimes hardens a fragile heart. CM Genovese spins sexy tales that pair bad boy alpha males with tough, wild, and feisty women. Both with quick tongues and fiery tempers. Neither with a hint of inhibition. Real romance doesn’t take place on rose petals. It happens on the hood of a car. This is romance in the raw.
Under the pen name Chris Genovese, I write romantic books that aren’t quite as dark. Under the pen name Carver Pike, I write horror and dark fantasy. So, CM Genovese is right in the middle. It’s edgy, gritty romance.
