 BLURB

 Every person has a story to tell. Some may be sweet with a happily ever after, but there are others that end in tragedy. Mine has yet to be finished. My name is Elizabeth Kingston and this is where my story begins.

I never thought my life could be so perfect. I have an amazing job owning my own bakery, and a wonderful husband who I love and who loves me back. Never once did I have to worry about anything, at least, not until the texts started coming in. They always begin the same way … numbers that spell my nickname when read upside down.

31773

It’s someone from my past, only they won’t to tell me who they are, but that by talking to them, I’ll figure it out. It’s a game I refuse to play. Unfortunately, I’m left with no choice when things begin to take a dangerous turn. His name is Anonymous and there’s only one thing he wants … ME.

EXCERPT

It’s closing time and Vikki and I are busy cleaning, so we can get home. My phone beeps with an incoming text and I look down at it and growl. “You can’t be serious.” Staring back at me isn’t a text from Jake, but from Anonymous. Even though I deleted and blocked the number ninety days ago, I still recognize it.

Vikki moves closer, her eyes wide. “What’s going on?”

I show her the text.

Anonymous: 31773?

Brows furrowed, she sits back. “What does that mean?” I turn my phone upside down, so she can see that the number spells out my name. Her eyes widen. “Wow, that’s cool you can type your name with numbers.”

“But not so cool when I don’t know who the person is,” I counter. “About three months ago, I got texts from this exact same person. Whoever it is likes to play games. I’m sick of it and I want them to leave me alone.” Taking a deep breath, I type out a reply.

Me: WHO IS THIS?

Anonymous: Why all the yelling?

I roll my eyes. This is just ridiculous.

Me: I like using all caps.

Anonymous: Don’t stop on my account. So, what have you been up to? Been a while since we talked.

Me: Yeah, it’s because I blocked the number.

Anonymous: Why?

Me: BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!!!!!

“What is he saying?” Vikki asks. I show her the texts and her eyes widen. “So, you haven’t talked to him since you blocked the number?”

I think back to when I blocked it and if my calculations are correct, the ninety days was up yesterday. “No, but he has perfect timing. My ninety days ran up yesterday. I might need to run to the cell store and see if they can block it permanently.”

My phone beeps again and a sharp pain settles in my gut. I just want whoever it is to leave me alone.

Anonymous: That hurts. You’ve always been friendly toward me.

Me: Obviously not friendly enough, if you can’t tell me who you are. It’s weird and it makes me uncomfortable. You need to leave me the hell alone. Don’t text, call, or try to contact me in any way. I’m happily married, and I want it to stay that way. GOODBYE!

Heart racing, I log into my cell phone account and before I can block the number, another text comes through.

Anonymous: Sorry 31773 but that’s not going to happen.

The blood in my veins runs cold. Hands shaking, I block his number and my phone drops onto the table. Vikki picks it up and reads the final text, her face growing pale.

“I don’t think this person’s going away.”

Mr. So Wrong by R.C. Stephens–Review

Mr. So Wrong is the second book in the series, but can be read as a standalone. We first meet Al in Mr. All Wrong, which is about his friend, Colton.

Albert Walsh the Third sounds like such a pretentious name, but truth is he’s just Al. Al is a guy who gave up that wealthy, snobby, privileged life a decade ago. The only remaining person that he talks to is his younger sister. Mr. So Wrong picks up where book one left off. His best friend has found love and is moving on, while Al is happy for him, this makes him unemployed and slightly lost. With nothing in sight, he plans a trip to spend Christmas with his younger sister at the family cabin in Colorado. Let’s just say his Porsche is not equipped for near blizzard like conditions and ends up in the ditch.

Samantha Belmont is a little girl who is lost and running away from life, despite, never leaving her hometown. Sam had made a promise to her mother when she was nine years old to make it out of their small town and find a good man to love. Here we are present day, where Sam is twenty-three and working side by side with her father on the ranch. Sam is coming home during the middle of the snowstorm and finds Al in the ditch. He is unconscious and freezing cold, so she takes him home (the home she shares with her father). It is the quintessential story of country girl and city boy.

Mr. So Wrong is a perfect balance of second chance romance among two damaged people, emotionally intense histories, new love/beginnings and breaking down the emotional barriers. Ms. Stephens wrote a book that was gripping, astonishing and outright beautiful. The plot and storyline was well done, as was the dual POV (past/present). The only negative I have is with the epilogue. If you are an epilogue whore, like myself, I was just plain wanting more. I felt that it was kind of lacking. Other than that, I truly do recommend this book.

“Even great men fall. I made fun of my best friend as he was falling hopelessly in love with his girlfriend. It was a jackass move I know. I’d been in love before but love was for fools. I promised myself I’d never fall in love again which means right now with Sam I’m totally screwed.”

Crux Untamed (Hades Hangman #6) by Tillie Cole–Review

Crux Untamed was one of my most anticipated reads! I knew when I read the blurb that I just had to read it. I was curious from the beginning of the dynamic duo of Cowboy and Hush. Cowboy’s outgoing personality and Hush’s calm and quiet demeanor pulled at me making me wonder what was going on underneath. As soon as I heard that Sia was Ky’s sister, I knew I had to have more.

This book…(smh)…man, this book was everything. It destroyed me in the best way possible. It was dark, gritty, uncomfortable, emotional (totally cried here), passionate and the underlying storyline was magnificent.

“Kärleken ser inte färger. Bara rena hjärter.” 

(“Love doesn’t see colors. Just pure hearts.”)

Our three leads are Sia (Elysia), Cowboy and Hush and I LOVED them. They stole my heart and had no concerns with giving it back. Prior to reading, Cowboy and Hush had me intrigued equally. While reading though, Hush, massacred my existence and slowly became my #1 go to guy of the series. Don’t get me wrong, I have other favorites, but Hush will always have an extra piece of my heart.

hush cowboy and sia.jpg

Tillie Cole mentioned that Jesse Williams, Kellan Lutz and Amber Heard were her inspiration for the characters. She did a pretty spot on job with description and transferring that into reader visualization.

“Three sets of blue eyes, all different. All who have walked different paths…All who have seen the full spectrum of life-the good, the bad, and the ugly.”

Sia is the sister to Ky, VP Hades Hangman. When she was seventeen years old, she got into some trouble and drew the attention of Juan Garcia (Mexican cartel). Ky and Styx (Pres of Hades Hangmen) had to go in and kidnap her back. Since this time, she has been hidden on a farm where she happily works with horses, as her own form of equine therapy. Unfortunately, she is indirectly found by Garcia.

“You’re mine, rosa negra. And I’m never letting you go.”

The underlying story and bond between Cowboy and Hush is beautiful, shocking and outright emotional. These twenty-six-year-old Cajun twosomes hale from an incredibly small town in Louisiana. Through much bad blood and incredibly hard to imagine horrific circumstances, they meet and have created a bond so strong, that nothing will destroy it!

Despite the seriousness and emotionally heaviness of this book, Viking and Ky brought forth some much needed instances of laughter. Despite being distraught and tormented, Ky mentioned something that just had me laughing with tears.

“It’s the thought of those fuckers double-teaming you that makes me see red…You’re my baby fucking sister. Now you’re in bed with not one but two brothers, who quite honestly could be fucking each other too. All I see in my head whenever you three are mentioned is a conga line of pussy, cocks and assholes. It’s fucking with my head!”

Truthfully, in all out honesty, Crux Untamed, is one heck of a book. You have Sia, Cowboy and Hush each with their own individual issues/storylines, but then you bring together three different people and meld those storylines into an incredibly heart-wrenching, yet tragically beautiful story, you simply end up with perfection. Everyone has their own very specific role within this threesome, it was exquisite to read. Sia is a broken woman, Hush is a damaged and lonely man, while Cowboy is the free-spirited glue that holds them all together. It was striking to read of them evolving and changing and finding peace within themselves and their souls. A truly impactful story with much greater depth than two men and a woman in a relationship.

“I couldn’t have been prouder to wear the Hangmen patch. Because they were my family…After fighting my demons for so long, I let myself accept the truth. I belonged.”

Bravo to Tillie Cole for another well done Hades Hangman!!

Live Free. Ride Free. Die Free!”

Enterrador by Ambere Sabo–Review

Entebook1023[18283]This was such a unique book.  I find it’s uncommon to read about the anti-hero and get their background story.  I loved this perspective, knowing the end before reading about the past. It allowed us to see how the ‘Enterrador’ persona was born, because there was a man, Adan, before there was an Enterrador.

The Silent Sons series, is listed as standalone novels. However, Enterrador has been brought up in the earlier books. This book gives a nice, concise explanation of who Adan/Enterrador is, where he came from and a small glimpse into where he is going. Who truly is/was the man behind the monster.

My head is so confused though. It’s telling me, ‘he’s the villain and shouldn’t be liked’, however, my heart is a bitch and has a different mind of its own. She’s telling me, ‘how can you really hate him after reading what he’s been through’. The thing is, I don’t know if I can ‘hate’ him after this. I felt so many emotions for him, that I fear when it comes to the next Silent Sons book (book 3, Lilly, Gunner and Enterrador), I may actually like him. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m still rooting for Lilly and Gunner, but it will be interesting to read book 3 with this newfound (semi) appreciation for the villain.

As usual with Ambere Sabo’s books, this was well written with wonderfully in-depth and complex characters. The story of Adan and Alex was so full of emotions and ups and downs. Happiness, sorrow, pain, love, absolute joy, along with a multitude of bad decisions and darkness all encompass this Silent Sons novella.

Ambere’s books continue to get better and I can’t wait for more!!

Title: Elite

A Privileged Novel

Author: Carrie Aarons

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations

Release Date: February 18, 2018

Elite Teaser 1 

BLURB

If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask, you’ll never be in.

Eloise Mason knows what it’s like to live among the privileged. Seeking a change from the upper crust society of Europe, she flies halfway across the world for a semester abroad in the one place guaranteed to toss responsibility out the window and provide some good, old-fashioned fun; college in The United States.

Except nothing at the picturesque, Ivy-covered university in Vermont appears as it seems. And after a mysterious invitation arrives on her doorstep, curiosity wins over the need to turn her back on games meant for the rich and ruthless.

Secret societies, risky tasks, and an inner circle to rival the royals. But it may just be one American boy who threatens to be the most dangerous endeavor of all.

Colton Reiter defines the word idolized at Jade Mountain University. In fact, he practically rules the roost from the three point line of the basketball court. The college’s star point guard, he is a god and treated as such; professional scouts at every game, teachers looking the other way when it comes to grades, and girls falling into his lap at the snap of a finger. He wants for nothing, or at least that’s what he wants everyone to believe.

But when he meets the sassy girl with the British accent who could care less about his status, her very existence threatens to unveil the skeletons buried deep in the back of his closet.

With stakes this high, and hearts on the line, can they turn their backs on power and popularity before the ivory tower comes crashing down on their heads?Elite Teaser 2

Genre: Romance Suspense

Release date: February 9, 2018

Blurb:

Mary Persephone Hail

Mary—well-wished-for child.

Persephone—destruction.

Hail—well that speaks for itself.

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child.  Persephone, though?  Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail?  Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.

The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.

Or so he thinks.

What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask?  Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival.  Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.

Dante’s a bad person.  He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds.  Karma is finally catching up to him.

This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.

He doesn’t want this child.

But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.

With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life.  But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind.  Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

F R O S T

Ella

Since I was a little girl, I have been surrounded by hate, death, murder, and slavery. I’ve been guarded my whole life by my brother—Raze, the kingpin of the underworld and the most feared individual in the United States of America. And then further more guarded when I found out the president of The Devil’s Own MC was my long lost half-brother. Being tossed around from one extreme protection to another has left a part of me yearning to break out of it’s cage. The part that I’ve tried to sugar coat and hide, because if she’s unleashed, everyone would see just how much like my brothers I am.

Panting, wanting, needing to unleash the side of me I’ve always known was there.

My secret is mine and my brothers.

Only they know what I hide and why I hide it. How I fight for love because if I don’t, my rage would win and I’d be a mere shadow of the girl people have grown to know.

But I broke.

And the man who held the hammer that shattered the walls I spent years building to cage in my rage—was a psychopath.
