Will Ashton
Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.

At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough.As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her.

Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more.
Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her.

Ava Layne

They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive.

Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.

OVER TEN YEARS ago my husband and I were driving from Chicago to Tampa and somewhere in Kentucky I remember seeing a billboard that was all black with five white words, “I do, therefore I am!” I’m certain that it was a Nike ad, but for me I found this to be completely profound.
Take running for example. Most will say that a runner is someone who runs five days a week and runs under a ten minute mile pace. Well, I can tell you that I never run five days a week and on my best days my pace is an eleven minute mile. I have run quite a few half marathons and one full marathon. No matter what anyone says . . . I run, therefore I am a runner.I’ve taken this same thought and applied it to so many areas of my life: cooking, gardening, quilting, and yes . . . writing.

I may not be culinary trained, but I love to cook and my family and friends loves to eat my food. I cook, therefore I am a chef!

My thumb is not black. I love to grow herbs, tomatoes, roses, and lavender. I garden, therefore I am a gardener!

I love beautiful fabrics and I can follow a pattern. My triangles may not line up perfectly . . . but who cares, my quilts are still beautiful when they are finished. I quilt, therefore I am a quilter.

I have been writing my entire life. It is my husband who finally said, “Who cares if people like your books or not? If you enjoy writing them and you love your stories…then write them.” He has always been my biggest fan and he was right. Being a writer has always been my dream and what I said I wanted to be when I grew up.

So, I’ve told you who I am and what I love to do . . . now I’m going to tell you the why.
I have two boys that are three years a part. My husband and I want to instill in them adventure, courage, and passion. We don’t expect them to be perfect at things, we just want them to try and do. It’s not about winning the race; it’s about showing up in the first place. We don’t want them to be discouraged by society stereotypes, we want them to embrace who they are and what they love. After all, we only get one life.

In the end, they won’t care how many books I actually sell . . . all that matters to them is that I said I was going to do it, I did it, and I have loved every minute of it.
Find something that you love and tell yourself, “I do, therefore I am.”

Summer of Series: The One Night Series by Jodi Ellen Malpas

Background

So for my next choice in my Summer of Series, I decided to read The One Night Series by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I absolutely loved her This Man series, so I figured I would probably love these books too, but I was not prepared for how much I would LOVE  these books. I loved every single phenomenal word of them. They were everything. This series is definitely one of the best series I have EVER read. It completely consumed me from the moment I started it, and I never wanted to these books to end.

This series gave me a truly incredible and breathtaking love story that I know I will never forget.

This series follows Olivia Taylor and Miller Hart aka “M”, and what starts out as a promise of one night of immense and unforgettable passion, quickly turns in to something neither of them expected. One night changes everything for Livy and Miller, and I mean everything. One Night Promised, One Night Denied, and One Night Unveiled follows these two on their incredible and utterly emotional, passionate, and captivating journey as they try to figure out where their immense connection and feelings for one another could lead them, if they only give it a chance. It follows them as that one night becomes something so epically more. As that one night becomes everything.

The One Night Series was consuming, intense, and mesmerizing as all get out. My heart was so completely invested into this story and to these characters, and because of this author’s outstanding writing, I got to fully experience every lick of this amazing series. It had the most superb level of passion and heat, darkness and light, emotion and feeling. It truly had every single thing that makes a book and series extraordinary to read and experience.

This series and Livy and Miller fulfilled me so remarkably. They made me feel alive when I was reading these books and experiencing their story. They gave me it all, and I basked in every single thing they gave me because it was extraordinary, magnificent, and the perfect balance of everything. These books had and were everything.

I think The One Night Series may have even surpassed the This Man series, which is definitely saying something because I loved Jesse and Ava something fierce, but Miller Hart and Olivia Taylor just completely stole my heart. They made my heart feel alive, they made it melt and squeeze, and they made it break and hurt quite a few times too, but the completely took it in this series. I honestly think they’ll always hold a some piece to my heart, because after reading these books I know I will always remember their dynamic, distinctive, and truly wonderful characters, and the epic love story they shared together.

One Night Promised

Livy and Miller’s characters were both phenomenal, thoughtfully crafted and layered, and just so enrapturing. Throughout this series you get to peel back those layers and see the real them, which is nothing short of wonderful because let me tell you, Livy and Miller are a force to be reckoned with and there is so much to know about them. Livy is sassy and spunky and has such a fire to her. She’s also got past filled with hurt that has lead her to the present of this book and to one Miller Hart. Miller hart is enigmatic, possessive, intense, and just everything that makes a male character swoonworthy. Along with Livy’s character , he’s got past laced with more demons and pain than you can shake a stick at.

They’ve both experienced more than their fair share of hurt and darkness, but what they feel and experience together is nothing but light and heat and spark filled, and you will bask in everything you get to experience with them as they try to figure out what to do with all that their feeling. That was honestly one of my favorite aspects of this series. Getting the chance to see two authentic, dynamic, and fantastically complicated characters come together and attempt to overcome that darkness that has ruled their lives for so long. Experiencing their fight and determination will make you love their characters immensely, and will have you wanting to give it your all too in hopes that they can find a way to be together.

Their journey together will make your heart race more times than you can count, and be prepared for some tough emotional moments that will have you reeling, but also be prepared for a love story that will completely leave you in awe.

It’s been 2 days since I finished these books, and I am still in awe. That is a true testament to the shear amazingness and talent of Jodi Ellen Malpas and the stories, world, and characters she so superbly created. Along with Miller and Livy, Jodi Ellen Malpas creates wonderful and distinctive supporting characters that I just loved. They were incredible, and Livy’s Nan is just about the best person ever. She’s a true gem. Her writing is truly exceptional and beautiful, and just allows you to live through this series with Livy and Miller, and to feel every ounce of what these books have to offer.

One Night Denied

I felt every raw and honest and exceptionally crafted emotion. I experienced every moment of wonder and hope, every moment of passion and heat, every moment of heart melting triumph and visceral heartbreak. Every moment of laughter, tears, shock, fight, feeling, and intensity. Every. Single. Glorious and real and brilliant all-feel consuming thing.

After reading this series, so many phrases will hold new and utterly wonderful meanings. Every time you read “The Special One”, or the word fascinate, or Miller and Livy’s thing, or the phrase “Just…Fucking…Perfect”, or the word habit, you will smile or melt or both. These phrases and their meanings are just one of the many aspects that makes this series the truly phenomenal thing that it is.

The One Night Series by Jodi Ellen Malpas will give you everything and more. It’ll give you Livy and Miller and their breathtaking, emotional, and unforgettable journey together. It’ll give you an enthralling story you can’t put down, and truly don’t ever want to end. It’ll give you every aspect that makes a book and a series exceptional, because that’s what this series is. Exceptional.

When all of the distinctive and extraordinary pieces of this story and these characters fully come to light, you will be blown away by the wondrous, awe-inspiring, and beautifully breathtaking thing you just experienced. You’ll just love it whole heartedly, feel it so deep in your bones, and you’ll have no doubt that Miller and Livy’s story is everything.

21795430“His eyes are smiling, and then like a sun breaking through the gray clouds on an overcast, smoggy day in London, his mouth smiles, too—his perfectly straight, white teeth on full display, his eyes sparkling wildly. He accepts me. All of me.”  

Synopsis:

ONE NIGHT WILL NEVER BE ENOUGH . . .

Livy notices him the moment he walks into the coffee shop. He’s heart-stoppingly stunning, with a blue-eyed gaze so piercing she’s almost too distracted to take his order. When he walks out the door, she thinks she’ll never see him again. Then she finds the note he left on his napkin . . . signed M.

All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He’s obnoxious but well-mannered. He’s a gentleman but aloof. He’s passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can’t deny him . . . or herself.

M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed-and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he’s aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she’ll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses become her obsession-an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair…

But as their insatiable affair intensifies, the two attract the attention of an obsessive-and dangerous-third party. Discovering new revelations about Miller that rock her to the core, Livy will have to decide whether he’s ruined beyond repair.

Excerpt

“You’re really purdy,” she slurred with a lopsided grin, running her finger down my cheek.
“That’s it. No more drinks for you,” I said, dragging the glass away from her.
“No! I’ve only had three,” she said as she lurched forward, pulling the drink out of my hands.
“I’m enjoying myself. I’ve had a bitch of a week and I deserve to let loose a little.”
I held my hands up. “You’ve actually had four martinis, but anything you want, princess.”
Her eyes grew into little slits. “I’m not your princess,” she slurred, sounding completely adorable.
My cheeks hurt as I smiled. “I’m going to take you home now. I think you need to sleep it off.”
“Last time I checked,” she said before hiccupping, “you’re not my daddy.” A slow smile crept across her face. She scooted closer and whispered, “Unless that’s your thing.” She tried to wink, but both eyes closed, one after the other.
I leaned into her space, a breath away from her lips. “It’s not my thing, but I’m happy to act out your fantasies. But I don’t think you want to cross that line. Once you go there, there’s no going back.” I stared into her eyes.
“Oooh.” Her eyes grew wide. “Is that supposed to scare me, Mr. DeLuca?”
I didn’t move. “I’m just giving you fair warning. You’ve had a few drinks, and I won’t take advantage of that. I’m just telling you how it is.”
“You’re full of yourself.” Her warm, sweet breath caressed my lips as she spoke.
All I wanted to do was reach out, pull her face to mine, and kiss her full, beautiful lips. “I’m sure of myself and confident in my abilities, yes. That’s entirely different than being full of myself.” I licked my lips, testing her.
Her eyes dropped to my mouth as her lips parted.
“Another?” Lisa interrupted.
“We’re good,” I replied, keeping my eyes pinned to Race and waving Lisa off.
“Pfft,” Lisa scoffed, stomping away.
Race glared in Lisa’s direction. “She wants you,” she whispered.
Was she jealous?
“I don’t want her.”
“She’s a sure thing though.”
I leaned closer, leaving very little space between us. “I never liked easy.”
“All men like easy.” Her body swayed, moving so close our lips almost brushed.

Excerpt

“Sorry, sweetheart, but you’re going to have to hit a lot harder than that to leave a mark on my skin,” he prods, further irritating me, causing me to ball my hand into a fist again, ready to accept his challenge. 

“Let’s get a couple of things straight here, asshole. First of all, when I introduced myself to you last night, did I say, ‘Hey, sexy, I’m Charlotte. I want a good fuck and you look just like the guy to give it to me’? Well, did I?” I ask, seething with anger as he hesitates to answer me. Sure, I may have thought about his lips on my skin, but I never would’ve gone home with him on the first night, no matter what Lucy advised me to do. 

He blinks at me, looking from my fist to my face. “Uh…no?” 

“Exactly, so you can forget that whole part of your argument, but thank God you’re so fucking noble that you won’t sleep with another man’s woman. Seriously. Fucking kudos. I’ll have to get you a cookie for that.” He snorts, and I glare at him, shutting him up. “So second of all, did you ever ask if I have a boyfriend? Not that it should matter to you since you blew me off when I simply told you my name, but did you ever ask if I had a boyfriend?”

Incinerate_Alternate3_4x6postcardAgain, I get a blank stare before he lets out another, “No.”

“So then ask me.” 

He clears his throat before he asks the question. “Charlotte, do you have a boyfriend?”

Giving him a sweet smile that’s still laced with venom, I answer him. “No, Knox, for your information, I do not have a boyfriend. I did, however, have a fiancé until a couple of months ago. It looks like we have one thing in common. I, like you, cannot stand cheaters.”

Summer of Series: The Stage Dive Series by Kylie Scott

Background

So I love me a good rocker series, which is why I picked Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive Series for my next set of books to read in my Summer of Series. I had heard such amazing things about this series, and by chapter 1 of the first book Lick, I knew that I was going to love everything about this series.

The Stage Dive Series was bursting with so much distinctive vibrancy and liveliness, some seriously amazing and authentic characters that I completely fell in love with, and stories that were completely enrapturing from the moment I started them. Once I started this series, I couldn’t stop reading, and I practically devoured all 4 books within just a few days. They completely consumed me.

I was completely pulled into the world of these books, and this author’s phenomenal writing put me right into that world, heart first with these fabulous characters.

Each of the 4 books in this series follows a different member of Stage Dive, one of the biggest rock groups around in the world of these books. I loved that I got to know each and every one of the members of this band throughout this entire series and in their individual books. The way Kylie Scott wrote and crafted these books just allows you to really connect to all of them so much, and you will love them all fiercely for the wonderfully distinctive people they are.

David, Ev, Mal, Anne, Jimmy, Lena, Ben, and Lizzy are just kind of the best. They are all extremely authentic, intense and consuming in their own unique ways, and they all come across as extremely real when you read this series. That was one of my favorite aspects in this series: getting to know so many varied and engaging characters that I just completely fell in love with. Of course they all have their flaws and they’re complicated as all get out, but that just made them all the more real to me, made them more dynamic, and it made me love them more because I felt like I really got to know the real and honest them.

The Stage Dive Series also gives you 4 different stories that just pull you more and more into the world of these books. Each couple gets their own book, thus their book has a distinctive flavor and feel to it because of the characters themselves and the story they have. I loved that so much because it gave me 4 wholly unique stories  to enjoy, while weaving that vibrant thread of this series and the characters throughout each book in the best possible way. Their stories are also filled with such a phenomenal level of emotion and feeling that you get to fully experience because of Kylie Scott’s fantastic writing.

I felt each and every one of their stories whole heartedly. Their ups, their downs, highs and lows, and everything glorious thing in between. I felt their struggles and triumphs, their vulnerabilities, their stubbornness, and everything that made them who they were. I got to fully experience it all, and I pretty much just relished in that because it made these books and characters come to life.

Lick

I have to say one of my favorite aspects of this series was the big ass smile I had on my face when I was reading every single one of these books. I also burst out laughing reading them more times than I could count, and I will tell you right now that Mal is guaranteed to have you in hysterical fits of laughter in no time in each and every one of these books. That man is pretty much the best. Trust me.

Lick, Play, Lead, and Deep were each superbly balanced books with so much life, love, heat and passion, ups and downs, and glorious tension weaving their way throughout the magnificent and unforgettable pages of these books.

I loved everything about these books and their characters. This series once again reminded me why I love a good rocker book, but these books were honestly so much more than that. They were exceptionally written, captivating as hell, and had such fire and spark bursting from their pages. I loved all of the stories and characters I got to fully experience and connect with in this series, and I couldn’t get enough time with all of these phenomenal characters. They were all fabulous in their own way, and they are just one of the many aspects  that makes this series the outstanding thing that it is.

The Stage Dive Series was fantastic in every way, shape, and form. All of the books within it are must reads that will have you wishing like crazy that Stage Dive was a real band that you could fall in love with because the members of that band are truly memorable  in the most fantastic ways, and their lady friends are even better.

Believe me, these books are well worth a read this instant. Don’t be like me and wait forever to read and fall in love with them. Each book will just leave you in love with these characters and their world, so get to falling in love with them as soon as humanly possible. You won’t be sorry that you gave the members of Stage Dive a chance, and when you give them that chance, you’ll be blown away by what they give you.

*Though each book follows a separate couple, I would recommend reading them in order so that you get the most out of reading these phenomenal books!*

Anne Rollins never thought she’d ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls—especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones.

Synopsis2

(Stand alone)

I’ve loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It’s that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He’s on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

My Review

*****5 Everything Stars*****

As I sit hear writing this review I have to say that I don’t know if I’ll be able to fully capture the sheer magnitude of how much I loved this book. Saying I loved Bleeding Love by Harper Sloan doesn’t seem to do this book the immense amount of justice it deserves. And let me tell you, this book deserves a helluva lot of justice because Liam and Megan’s heart melting story is one that will truly stay with me forever.

Saying I loved this book still doesn’t seem like a strong enough sentiment for the utterly captivating, beautifully emotional, and truly unforgettable reading experience I had while reading Bleeding Love.

I felt this book in my bones, and so deep in my heart. I felt every stich of emotion, every heated and raspy breath of desire, every wisp of spark filled connection, every swoonworthy make your heart melt moment. I felt everything. Every beautiful, all feeling, and consuming thing. Every. Single. Thing.

And that is just part of what makes this book the exceptional thing that it is.

Even though I’m not sure saying I loved this book will do it the justice it warrants, I honestly can’t say enough how much I loved it. I loved the words I read. I loved all of the extraordinarily crafted feelings and emotions I got to whole heartedly experience. I loved the remarkable and captivating characters I fell so hard for. I loved their triumphs and struggles. I loved the moments that hurt my heart, the moments that tried to make it all better, and the moments that made it all worth it. I loved it all.

Liam and Megan’s story in Bleeding Love consumed me heart and soul right from the very start. I loved that in this story you were thrown right into the thick of it right from the very start, and that just worked so well for what was happening between Liam and Megan. You hit the ground running, and you don’t stop feeling and breathing and taking in this story until you reach the end. (And even then you still feel, and breathe, and take it all in because it is that fantastic.) This story will just enrapture you from the very start, and feeling all that you do from these two from the very beginning will have you rooting for them from page one.

Megan and Liam’s story is defined by a lot of things. It’s defined by the past, and the pain and struggle that it brings for Megan. It’s defined by the determination and stubbornness that comes along with it. It’s defined by the utterly magnificent level of fight that bursts from the pages of this book, from both Megan and Liam. (Especially Liam. That man fights hard, and you will feel that in your bones.) It’s also defined by the exceptional and breathtaking level of emotion and feeling you experience from Liam and Megan from the very start to the very end.

Bleeding Love is defined by so many incredible things, and each and every one of those things is what makes this beautifully crafted story what it is.

A story of two people fighting to see and realize that if they find a way to breakdown all the walls and put together all their remarkable pieces, they could truly share something so beyond worth it.

My heart went to Megan’s character right from the start. That girl has been through it all, and much is revealed about her past and how things came to be over the course of the story. Megan has gone through way more than what any person deserves. I hurt for what she went through, I connected so truly to what she was experiencing and feeling, and I cared for her so fiercely as she went through her breathtaking and heart squeezing journey in this book.

Even though Megan has experienced a world of pain and hurt, there is such a strength to her character attempting to push through. A fire and an effervescent spirit that is giving it her all for herself and for her daughter. I can’t say enough how much I respected, loved, and admired her and the tenacity that flowed from her even in those very dark moments. Megan is a gem of a character, who will just blow you away with everything she’s got.

Liam Beckett won me over not only with his heart stopping smile, but with his heart of gold that was bursting with so much authentic, raw, and honest feeling. There is just such a goodness to his character that you feel right from the start. What he feels for Megan and for her daughter will warm your heart, while also quite possibly bursting an ovary or two.

What I think I loved most about Liam was the level of fight that he had, and that he wasn’t afraid to put it all out there for Megan. He was there for her, and through it all he kept pushing and fighting with all of his might because he knew they could share something extraordinary, if they were only given the chance to. He also wasn’t too proud to put all of his feelings and intentions out there, and he did that so genuinely with such integrity, that I guarantee there is no way you won’t fall under the spell of his character. It’s simply impossible not to love him.

Liam and Megan’s story was definitely a journey. It had its ups and downs, and it definitely puts your heart through the ringer a bit with all that these two go through, but I am telling you that you will bask in everything you get with them both. Even in those moments where you’re feeling every heart squeezing moment so fully in your heart and when your tears are flowing freely, you’ll love it because of the extraordinary experience you’re getting with Liam and Megan.

You feel them. You get them. Your root for them. You love them.

I can’t tell you how many times I had tears come to my eyes when I read this book, or how many times my heart literally squeezed because of what I was feeling while reading. I lost count. I can tell you though that I highlighted practically half of the book because the words were just that meaningful, and they needed to be remembered. That is just a true testament to the real literary magic that Harper Sloan created and conveyed in Bleeding Love.

I have read and loved all of Harper Sloan’s books, and I have to say that when I read a book by her it feels like coming home. That might sound super cheesy, but it couldn’t be more true. Her phenomenal writing, outstanding stories, and fantastically dynamic characters just continue to enrapture me within their amazingness. I love what I get to feel when reading these books and spending time with all of these remarkable characters. They completely steal my heart each and every time, and I continue to be swept away in the wonderfulness that is the world of Harper Sloan’s books.

Bleeding Love was no different. The minute I started it, I knew I was going to love it fiercely. About 10% in I had a feeling it would be my new favorite book from this author, and by the halfway point I knew without a doubt that this was assuredly my favorite book of Harper Sloan’s to date. I will say that that surprised me a little bit, not because I didn’t think I’d love this book because I knew that I would, but because Locke had been my favorite character in the world of this author’s books since the moment I met him in Axel (Harper Sloan’s first book), so of course his book had always been special.

I’ve loved all of Harper Sloan’s magnificent characters. They’ve each stolen a little distinctive piece of my heart because they’re all kind of fabulous, and until this book I think Locke owned the biggest piece. But with one heart melting smile from one Liam Beckett, Liam’s piece became just a bit bigger. Then I read this book, and got to feel the goodness and wonderfulness emanating from that man, and the piece of my heart belonging to Liam, and Megan and Molly for that matter, got even bigger.

Bleeding Love was everything. It gives you every single authentic, amazing, and emotionally heart stopping thing you could ever want in a story. You feel every ounce of what you read in this book, and it reminds you of why feeling a book so fully is nothing short of wonderful. It’s a story of what happens when two people begin to realize that love is worth giving everything to, worth every bit of fight you have, and worth every incredibly breathtaking and heart pulling moment it can give you.

Like I said, Bleeding Love was everything, and you’re going to want to experience that superb level of everything right this very second. Believe me. That everything is everything.

bleeding love teaser 2

Excerpt

His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”

I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to. I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.

Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back. Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze. Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.

He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body. A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment. His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls. He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.

I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.

His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver. “Feels like heaven,” he says softly. “Everything, darlin’. Feels like everything.”

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

It’s a Cover Reveal: He Found Me Series by Whitney Barbetti

 
He Found Me: 
 
When I was seventeen, I disappeared. I walked out the door of my apartment with a backpack and never looked back. I left the life of Cora Mitchell behind, seeking freedom from my real-life nightmare. But my freedom came with a cost. I lived a fictitious life for the next six years, never letting anyone close enough to see underneath the facade that was Andra Walker. I was content with my simple little life. Until I met Julian. And the moment I started allowing myself to open up, allowing someone to see through the superficial, was the very same moment the Monster from my past would return to find me.
He Saved Me: 
 
Julian
I’ve come to understand that I’ll always find her. She’s my north star, my sense of direction. In her, I’ve found my home. She tells me I saved her. But the truth is, she saved me.
 
But nothing good can ever last. Andra’s keeping secrets. She’s holding something back. I’m trying, desperately, to anchor her. To let me in, to let me help.
 
But will all my efforts end up with a ghost of a girl I love?
 
Andra 
I’m used to disappearing. Vanishing into thin air, without a trace of who I’ve been or where I’ve gone.
 
But it’s so much harder to do with a broken heart and no hope for a happy ending. Sometimes the only people who can put all the pieces of us back together are the ones we least expect to. That’s what Julian did for me.
 
Julian found me. But now, all Six wants is to keep me locked up, away from the world, away from the Monster. I can’t live like that. It’s not living at all. Because I still have unfinished business.
 
And I’m going to make sure the Monster gets what’s coming to him.

Ace by Lyra Parish

Excerpt

Except of Chapter 1:

Disclaimer: this is subject to change.

Tonight I would fuck the blonde in the front row. The set was nearing the end and I could feel her gaze peeling off every piece of my clothing. I liked when a woman knew what she wanted.

Blue and green lights flashed over the stage then washed across the crowd. When we made eye contact again, her tongue traced the outside of her plump bottom lip and at that moment I knew she was DTF. Her being down to fuck made this so much easier but then again, being the lead singer of the Band of Brothers made panties magically melt. I’d be her fantasy for the night.

This tour wasn’t like the others because this time everyone wanted a piece of us as if our success happened overnight. But we earned every fucking opportunity we had. I would say given but that’s bullshit. My brothers and I worked hard for every small and large success we had because that’s our nature. We were raised to not take shit for granted and to work hard. Being assholes just came naturally but we knew to give respect where respect was due.

Each show from Florida to California, all the way to New York was sold out and that felt incredible.

The drums beat on as I screamed out the next few lyrics. “I won’t let the world decide. I’ll die before that happens.” The drums stopped and the distortion was cut leaving a melodic strum of Nicolas’s guitar.

The lights faded when walked off stage leaving the crowd to themselves. Ian, Nicolas, and Liam had huge smiles covering their faces as they chugged the water the technicians handed us. This would never get old. Moments like this were the ones we lived and worked for. Once the chanting and clapping started, the four of us walked back onstage and gave the fans what they wanted, an encore.

Green and yellow lights flashed over the crowd and smoke hovered at the bottom of the stage. We played three more songs and the people sang and swayed to the lyrics and music. Some jumped up and down, feeling the full beat of the drums while others banged their heads. The feeling of having thousands of people chanting my words would never become real. More often than not, I felt like I was in a dream, one that I never wanted to wake from.

During the last song, I pointed to the blonde who continued to visually rip my clothes off with every little blink she took. By the way she was dressed in a tight pink shirt and little bitty skirt, I knew she wanted to be seen. She could have possibly had this night planned from the beginning. Randomly, I chose a few others from the crowd to join us, to dance in front of our audience, to feel the temporary power. It was something I did every show, every tour. It was a habit of sorts.

Security helped the girls climb on the stage and they shook their asses in those little pieces of material that were supposed to be skirts. It always made women feel special when they were with the band, and I loved giving them just a little taste.

A person doesn’t fully understand performing live until they have had the opportunity to look out past the stage lights and see the people. Before the song ended, the technicians led the girls’ side stage as cannons of confetti shot from the floor. Different colored pieces of paper glittered everywhere. When the final song ended, my brothers and I walked side stage where girls anxiously waited us. I smiled, popping an eyebrow at my chosen woman for the night, and she instantly came to me. I wrapped my arm around her shoulder and hers hung on my waist. My brothers stopped in the green room with the other girls, but Blondie and I walked to the bus.

“I’m Lindsey,” she whispered in my ear before we reached the end of the hallway. I smiled at her and pushed open the exit door. Groupies and fans waited near the bus and as soon as we walked up they rushed it.

“I’ll be out in a bit,” I said, smiling at them with pearly whites. “My brothers are coming out that door over there. Really soon.”

I hated to out their exit strategy, but I wanted to take my time burying my dick deep inside Misty or Christy or whatever the fuck her name was. It didn’t matter. Names never did.

My Review

**** 4.5 AMAZING STARS****

Each time I sit down to read a new book in River Savage’s Knights Rebels MC Series, I fall more and more in love with this phenomenal series and its distinctive characters. River Savage’s fantastic writing continues to pull me into the world of this series, and I absolutely love every word I get to spend within it. Desertion, the third full length novel in this series, was no different, and I was completely enraptured by Jesse and Bell’s story.

It was heated and bursting with more sparks and fire than fireworks on the Fourth of July. It was emotionally consuming, and had me living and breathing and feeling every single exceptionally crafted feeling and emotion these characters were. It was entertaining as all get out too, and I couldn’t go more than a few pages without smiling or laughing or just enjoying what I was reading.

Desertion just gave me so much when I was reading it. It gave me two magnificent characters who were both fighting some major things in their lives. It gave me their fantastically intense story of what happens when those two dynamic characters come together. It gave me the distinctive world of this series, and all of the wonderful characters that come with it once again.

This book gave me so much, and I just relished in that because it was utterly fantastic to experience.

Jesse Carter is definitely a player to put it mildly. He puts on a happy-go-lucky front, but underneath his charming surface is a man that has experienced a world of pain and more hurt than anyone deserves. Jesse is still reeling from that pain in this book, and you get to experience that full force. Let me tell you that that pain is a doozy, but what you experience with Jesse will have you feeling immensely for his character. He keeps people away, he says things he shouldn’t, and he sure pushes and pushes until you can’t push anymore, but you will completely understand why he does that because of how fantastically this author writes and develops his character.

As much I sometimes hated what Jesse was doing to himself and to others in this book, I just completely understood where it came from and why he was like that, and that just allowed me to completely get his character. I cared for him, I felt for him immensely, and my heart just went to him with what he was going through. Reading Jesse experience that and try to fight through the darkness that threatens to overcome him will completely blow you away.

Bell Johnson was an incredible female character that I instantly connected to the minute I started this book. She was real, she was honest, and she definitely had a striking innocence to her. What I think I loved about Bell the most though was getting to see how her character evolved over the course of the story. Her character is wonderful throughout this book, but I got to experience Bell go from being reserved and held back, to someone who wasn’t afraid to give it all she had, fight back, and give as much push as she could. I loved seeing that evolution in her character because I felt that it showed so much strength in her, and it really just illuminated so many phenomenal things about her.

Like Jesse, Bell has some darkness in her past that continues to cloud her future. I was captivated completely in Bell’s story, and what her and her family were going through while reading Desertion. Reading what she experiences as she tries to find a way out from that darkness just made me love her character more, and just showed that she was a girl who was bound and determined to fight for her family and find the light to all of that darkness.

Now when Jesse and Bell come together in this book you get a lot of things. You get a whole heck of a lot of charm from Jesse, you get a whole lot of “you’re not getting any of this” from Bell, and you get the outstanding level of push and pull that results from that. Jesse and Bell have an electric level of chemistry that fires off of the page, and it just continues to build and build and build some more in Desertion until its inevitable explosion. And let me tell you, when it all explodes, it is mesmerizing, heated as all get out, and bursting with more passion and intensity than you can shake a stick at.

I feel like Desertion is defined in a way by the level of push and pull between Jesse and Bell. That push and pull is heated and sometimes it’s isn’t too pretty to experience, but boy is it emotional, all feeling, and laced with so much intensity. You will feel every single ounce of that push and pull, and your heart will go to both Jesse and Bell for what happens in the midst of all that. Your heart will break for them, it will feel for them, it will love them, and most of all it will want to fight for them because with every push and pull, you get a clearer glimpse of the extraordinary and vibrant thing Bell and Jesse could have if they only gave it a chance.

While Bell and Jesse try to make sense of what it is that their feeling for one another and where that could take them, this book also gives you a storyline filled with many twists and turns. I thought River Savage did an exceptional job of weaving the many layers to this story together, and it’s just one of the many aspects that reminded me why I have loved every book in this series. Desertion was packed with events that paced the story very well, and just had me beyond intrigued to learn what would happen next. While you get a complete story in Desertion, River Savage also did a fantastic job of setting up what’s to come in this series, which I am so excited and looking forward to reading.

That story also does a phenomenal job of bringing the wonderfully distinctive characters of this series together once again. It’s no secret that the Knights Rebels and their lady friends are some of my favorite characters around, and I just relished in getting to spend more time with them in this book. Their interactions with Bell and Jesse just made me love them more, and I was beyond thrilled with what I got to see with their characters. Nix, Kaydence, Holly, Sy, Beau, Kelly, Hunter, Brooks, and all the rest of the amazing characters in this series just added to how much I loved reading this book, and I for one can’t wait to spend more time with all of them.

River Savage and her outstanding writing just allows you to become fully encapsulated within the incredible world of this book with her fantastic characters, and I am telling you that you will love every word you get to spend within it.

Desertion was an emotionally charged book that tells the story of two seemingly opposite characters, who just might be exactly what the other needs to move past the darkness and pain that threatens to consume them. This book was exciting, and passionate, and intense in the best possible ways, while it told the story of two exceptional characters and their extraordinary fight. Sometimes they were fighting themselves, sometimes they were fighting each other and that magnetic pull they shared, and sometimes they were fighting that darkness, but through it all they were fighting and giving it their all.

This book will have you fully and whole heartedly experiencing everything with Jesse and Bell’s characters. You’ll hurt with them, you’ll bask with them, and you’ll fight and fall so deeply with them as you read their magnificent story. By the end of this book you’ll just realize why you love Jesse and Bell fiercely, why you love and root for what their fighting for, and why you once again love the wonderfully distinctive and wholly enrapturing world of the Knights Rebels MC.

Excerpt
I wake up to the heat of someone’s palm against my shoulder. Twisting around, my hand moves faster than my brain, and I snatch it off me.

“Jesse, it’s me, Bell,” she rushes out before I can take it any further.

“Fuck.” I release my grip on her arm and sit up, forcing myself back to the here and now.

“Did I hurt you?” I reach for her searching for any sign of a mark left by me.

“It’s fine. You barely touched me.” She holds her arm out letting me inspect it. I check it over one more time before releasing her and relaxing.

“You wanna talk about it?” I study her face, eyes calm, soft mouth. She’s not freaking out.

“Just some shit that visits my dreams sometimes, nothing that needs to touch you,” I reply, shocked I’m not retreating.

“I don’t mind, Jesse,” she pushes, and I almost cave. Almost.

“The last thing I want to do is talk about this shit, Bell.” She doesn’t argue or press, and I’m grateful for it. I don’t think I’d be able to keep my cool if she did.

“Come back to sleep.” She lies back down and I follow her. She doesn’t ask me any more questions, or make me feel like I need to tell her everything.

“That ever happens again, don’t wake me,” I warn. A menacing thought strikes through me picturing what could have happened if I didn’t wake in time. She’s lucky I didn’t hurt her, like the last time a woman touched me while I had a nightmare.

“You don’t always have to be so brave, Jesse.” Her hand moves to my dog tags. I don’t stop her. I’m starting to like the feeling of her hands touching them.

“Never tried to be, Bell. But talking doesn’t help me. Never has.” I think back to the time when I did try and it forced me out of control. Talking about those triggers only amplified my insecurities. When death sits afar, mocking you in the dangerous confines of your surroundings, it fucks with your head; nothing was going to change it.

Besides, my issues weren’t what I had done. They were what I had survived. My conscience wasn’t clear and my honor wasn’t clean.

“Promise me you won’t touch me.” I keep my tone even, controlled.

“I promise.” I take her hand in mine and bring it to my lips. Maybe one day I will let someone in. Let her in.

Today isn’t that day.

But today, I didn’t push her away.

That has to count for something.
