{Review} Consolation by Corinne Michaels

Consolation

Consolation

Blurb

Liam wasn’t supposed to be my happily ever after.

He wasn’t even on my radar.

He was my husband’s best friend—forbidden.

But my husband is dead and I’m alone. I ache for him and I reach for Liam.

One night with Liam changed everything. Now I have to decide if I truly love him or if he’s just the consolation prize.

 

Review

 

What a roller coaster of emotions, Consolation was one of those books that I just didn’t want to end, I have no words to describe all the feelings I went through while reading it.

As the story went on I was more drawn into it, gosh Corinne has amazing way with words.

Here character development in this book was perfection the relationship between Liam and Nat was deep and I think everlasting.

I was shredding tissues by the end of this book, tear stained pillow and all, I am only writing a short review because I will not spoil it, just know that this romance was perfection for my reader heart.

6 Amazing Stars!!!!

{Review,Excerpt & Giveaway} Never Gonna Tell by Sarah M. Ross

Synopsis

My name is Reagan Wilcox: high school senior by day, kick-ass investigative journalist by night. I’ve always loved observing people—especially when they think no one is paying attention.

I thought I was ready to cover any story. Work any angle.

Nothing could have prepared me for what happened that night. I wasn’t ready for what I saw. And I certainly wasn’t ready for him.

I always knew I’d write the headlines. Now, I just might become one.

 

ReviewI LOVED this book, I don’t read a lot of YA but this book had me hooked from page one! The storyline was one of originality and substance, it was really well written and suspenseful, not knowing what was going to happen next. Three words Adventure,Suspense with a twist of Romance is how I would describe this book.

Some of the choices Reagan made had me shaking my head but then I had to remember shes a teenager and everytbing was falling into place.

With a fantastic storyline and characters that made the story entertaining I am going to recommend this to anyone that reads YA novels I don’t think you will regret it.

4.5 Stars!

 

Excerpt

“All right, ladies, since once again it’s raining and the fields are soaked, we’ll be working indoors with the boys’ class today, playing table tennis. I want you to focus on your serves, as we’ll start actual tennis in the next few weeks, so be sure to rotate often. Get in groups of four—two boys and two girls—and come get your paddles and a ball. Coach Shaw and I will be coming around to each group to help out if needed and make sure you’re on task. Ready? Go.” She blows her whistle, and kids everywhere start grouping up.
Ugh! I hate this part. I just know I’m going to end up with the goth girl whose sole athletic ability seemed to be eye rolling and the captain of the chess club who puffs on his inhaler more than Snoop puffs on his ganja.
Sure enough, we’re the last three standing without a group. Seeing as my fate is sealed, I walk up to Coach Perkins to grab our ball and paddles and make one last-ditch effort to try to play on her sense of mercy and explain that we only have three and can’t play. The gym door squeaks open behind me. Ahh! A latecomer. Maybe I’ll get lucky and actually have a partner who’ll try to hit the ball.
Coach Shaw is already making the rounds, so Coach Jenkins hands me the equipment before she steps around me to take the late slip from whoever came in. “Here you go, Reagan. And, oh look, now you have a fourth. Mr. Calotta, you’ll join Ms. Wilcox on her team. There’s not enough time, so don’t worry about dressing down today.”
A cold chill runs down my back, and I instantly freeze. Mr. Calotta? As in, Marco Calotta? No, no, no, no, no.
If it weren’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all. Marco Calotta might be ridiculously hot with chin-length black hair that he keeps in a tight ponytail at the base of his neck, model-envy cheekbones, and piercing blue eyes so light and clear they could double as polar ice caps, but he scares the crap out of everyone in school, including me. I’ve made it two years without having an encounter with him; I don’t want to change that now.
I look up to realize that Marco is staring at me. Great, I’ve drifted off into my head again, and now he probably thinks I’m a mental case. I blink and look away, glancing back in his direction. He’s still staring. Like, hard-core staring. It’s freaking me out.
“Um, I guess you’re with us.” I don’t wait for his reaction or reply. Instead I take the paddles and head back to where the other two on my team are waiting. I want to smack myself for acting so stupid, but Marco makes me nervous for two reasons: I enjoy my kneecaps in one piece and I’m afraid I’ll start drooling if I look at him for much longer.
“This is never going to work,” Marco sighs, cocky smile plastered on his face.
Oh, crap. Did I say that last part out loud? “Um, sorry. What did you say?”

Release Day Excerpt:

THE CHURCH BELLS from St. Agnes Church chime, letting me know I have a half hour before Dad calls the National Guard out for me. Hmm, maybe enough time to head to the Shake Shack and get a frozen salted caramel hot chocolate—my new favorite addiction.

Gravel crunches under my feet as I cross the parking lot toward my car. As I dig through my backpack searching for my car keys, a yelp rings out in the distance. Pausing, I stand still and listen for the sound again. Was an animal hurt somewhere, maybe? The noise was muffled and not close by, so I can’t make out the source. The last bell chimes, reminding me I should hurry home, but the reporter in me won’t let me leave without checking. I wait a few minutes to see if I hear it again, scanning the area for the source.

Across the street, dark shadows fill the doorways of the now-closed shops that line the main road, setting my nerves on edge. The voice in my head nags that this is how horror movies begin, but I shake off the ridiculous thought. Horror movies aren’t real. The idea of scooping a story before anyone else—that’s a real possibility. Nothing moves except for the leaves as the breeze picks up. Just as I’m ready to give up, I hear the noise again, this time followed by what sounds like shuffling feet—like something sliding through gravel.

“What in the world was that?” I mutter. The sounds together don’t make any sense. If it was an animal yelping, what was that other noise? Had someone maybe captured an animal in a trap? This is rural Tennessee, so it wouldn’t surprise me. Everyone around here is well-versed in hunting, starting in elementary school.

My naturally inquisitive mind begins imagining several scenarios, and I can’t walk away. Not until I know. Lord knows if I just get in my car and leave, I’ll be up all night thinking about how I might’ve missed out on a story. Bye bye, scholarship.

I sigh, shoving my overflowing backpack in the passenger seat before slamming the car door as I head toward the source of the noise. I make my way toward the river, cutting through an alleyway. The single streetlight flickers, barely illuminating the area and making it feel even more desolate out here. Ominous, almost. I can’t help thinking that with my luck, it’ll end up being a skunk that sprays me for trying to help.

The alley is more of a narrow path between buildings, not even wide enough for a car to fit through. Overflowing dumpsters from surrounding businesses line one side while the other is a dirty brick wall covered in graffiti. If this were Baltimore, I might have been more cautious, but while Hope Mills isn’t Pleasantville by any means, I don’t feel afraid, only curious.

“Get your hands off me, you son of a bitch. You’re never going to get away with this!” a man growls in the distance, the final word echoing off the water.

I whip my head around, barely missing smacking it on an underhang promoting JT’s Soul Food Buffet. Okay, that definitely wasn’t an animal.

Lawrence Finkle, known simply to his die-hard Minnesota Wild fans as Viper, isn’t used to hearing the word no. He lives his whole life just a little on the reckless side. After all, life is just one big game, right?

Wrong.

When what was supposed to be an innocent bet goes horribly wrong, he’s left to deal with the aftermath—and the guilt. In an effort to make things right the best way he can, he ends up falling for the one person on the planet he never should have.

Review- Cowboy Paradise by Rhonda Lee Carver

Book: Cowboy Paradise
Author: Rhonda Lee Carver
Genre: Cowboy Romance
Synopsis



Exhausted with carrying around the weight of a damaged past, Cara is ready to take the ultimate step in finding her old self, before she met and married her evil husband. She needs to get away from the small town where rumors are spinning and people know her. When she visits Nirvana Ranch, an R&R, she realizes life isn’t as bleak as she thought.
Ben is missing something. He doesn’t feel the excitement he once did as a ranch hand at Nirvana, until he meets a guest that turns his world upside down. He has a connection with her that he can’t brush off or deny. Getting to know her breaks every rule in his book, but he is willing to take the risk.
Cara didn’t expect her life to change the moment sexy and rugged Ben walks in. Parts of her are flaming hot for cowboy, and she has an opportunity to break the rules, something her husband never allowed. Ben triggers her every fantasy and every desire. She’s on the ride of her life and it doesn’t require a saddle.What started as a strong urge to take Cara to a new level of passion becomes much, much more for Ben. Cara’s touch destroys the boundaries he’d built—exposing a secret of his own, a past of heartache and guilt.

Warning: Read at your own risk of falling for a cowboy.
Review
A fast and romantic western cowboy themed but that I thoroughly enjoyed. I do wish it was longer because I was enjoying it a lot.
The characters and a storyline are well developed and passionate, I completely fell head first for Ben.
Cara is a really lovable Female lead characters, strong willed yet soft.
Ben is hot! I love a good cowboy story and this one was really sweet and romantic, ticked all the boxes for me.
I look forward to reading more from this author.

Author Bio

At an early, Rhonda fell in love with romance novels, knowing one day she’d write her own love story. Life took a short detour, but when the story ideas would no longer be contained, she decided to dive in and write. Her first rough draft was on a dirty napkin she found buried in her car. Eventually, she ran out of napkins. With baby on one hip and laptop on the other, she made a dream into reality—one word at a time.

Her specialty is men who love to get their hands dirty and women who are smart, strong and flawed. She loves writing about the everyday hero.

When Rhonda isn’t crafting sizzling manuscripts, you will find her busy editing novels, blogging, juggling kids and animals (too many to name), dreaming of a beach house and keeping romance alive. Oh, and drinking lots of coffee to keep up with her characters.

Excerpt


“Ben, something’s in my pants.”
He dropped the basket to the ground. “What is it?”
“I don’t know, but…ouch! It stung me!” She froze. “Afraid if she moved an inch either direction whatever it was would sting her again. “I think it’s a bee.”
“What does the sting feel like?”
“Are you serious? A sting! Like someone shot a staple into my butt.” Tears came to her eyes.
“Drop your pants, Cara.” He was beside her in a flash.
The back of her thigh started to throb in pain but she continued to stare at him in confusion. “I’m not dropping my pants.” She was mortified.
“If it’s a wasp, it’ll sting you again,” he warned.
Fear washed over her, but not from the wasp. If she pulled down her pants he would see her panties, not the pretty, lace ones she wore once upon a time. Not the panties she knew men like Ben wanted to see on a woman. Cara’s panties certainly wouldn’t be found in a sexy lingerie shop. These were the comfy panties—as she liked to call them—she started wearing when James continually told her how fat she was getting. They didn’t cover up enough for her liking.
Had she gone mad?
And why did she care one hoot what underwear she was wearing? If Ben didn’t like them, then so what!
She smiled. Wow! She was getting the aggressive thing down. Deirdre would be proud.
“Do you need some help?” he asked.
She smacked his hand away. “No. I’ll do it, but you have to turn your head.”
“Cara, we don’t have time for this. Is it not processing that you could be stung again? This is for emergency reasons only.” The sincerity in his expression made it easier to do what she knew must be done.
Unbuttoning and unzipping her jeans, he was polite enough to keep his gaze on her face as she slowly slid the denim down her hips and thighs, slipping them to her knees. All of James’s cruel and degrading verbal assaults crawled through her mind as she stood there, partially naked. He had been the only man who’d seen her without clothes. And he’d never liked what he saw.
“Where did it sting you, sweetheart?” His gentle voice soothed her—a little.
“On my thigh, the back.”
“Turn and let me take a look.” His gaze slipped past her chest, her stomach and she crossed her, vulnerability easing through her.  “If it’s a bee sting you could still have the stinger in your skin, which could cause infection. We can’t let that happen. You’re in Nirvana and that bee just wanted a little taste of honey.”
How did he do that? How did he make everything seem okay? How did he make her concerns seem ridiculous? In actuality, her fears were silly. She was being silly. James was gone and she was moving on. The internal scars were fading.
Reluctantly, she turned and closed her eyes. His breath rushed from his lungs and she jerked. Then he was quiet for the longest time. Was he silently gawking at her large butt or her huge thighs? She’d never claimed to be a supermodel and never wanted to be.  She read in a magazine that men liked juicy butts, but what exactly did ‘juicy’ mean? Seconds turned into a minute. She started to turn back but he stopped her with a hand on her waist.  “What is it, Ben?”
“It’s definitely a bee sting, darlin’.” His voice was smooth as silk.
“Then get it out fast. This is awkward standing here with my pants down around my ankles.”
“Well, sweetheart, there’s a problem.”

The rules:

No dating.

No sex outside of the game.

No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract.  One that seemed like a good idea at the time.  A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed.  There were some rules though.  Lots of them actually.  Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal.  After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought.  Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

Review

Throb

Every girl needs three things

  1. A flutter in her belly when she meets him for the first time.

 Meet Cooper

 My lips brush the top of her hand lightly, my tongue sneaking out to fleetingly touch her skin.  The brief contact stirs an ache inside me.  This woman tugs at something—more than arousal—something that makes me want to slow down time just to spend a few more minutes standing here.

“Did you just…” she stammers a bit.

“Did I just what?”

She squints at me.  “You know.”

“Do I?”

“I felt your tongue on my hand.  You…you licked me.”

I’d been dying to run my tongue along her neck all evening, although I hadn’t really meant to be so crude about it.  It just sort of …happened.  “I wouldn’t say licked, maybe just a little taste.”

“So you tasted me?”

My entire body suddenly has interest in this conversation.  “I suppose I did.  But it wasn’t nearly enough.  That brings us back to my invitation for dinner.  Tomorrow night?”

“I can’t.”

“The day after then?”

She laughs and shakes her head.  The sound makes me smile.

“Good night, Cooper.”  She pulls the driver’s side door shut and leaves me standing there…for a full five minutes after she’s gone.

Review- Out in Time by Grey Cole

91AUGr1KXYL._SL1500_

91AUGr1KXYL._SL1500_

Synopsis

A slice-of-love-life story. Standalone novella. About 35,000 words or 95 pages.

A closeted football star. An out and proud photographer. And a road trip.

Wade Truman had grown accustomed to admiring Heath Taylor from afar. Now, years of denying himself and the irresistible Heath are wreaking havoc on Wade’s resolve. The odds are stacked against them … they’re graduating college soon. Wade just signed a multimillion dollar football deal—thrusting him even further into the spotlight. Not to mention, what would the gorgeously refined Heath want with a small town jock boy like himself anyway?

Heath grew up privileged, accepted, and out. And the two hells he swore he would never put himself through—crushing on a straight guy and being anyone’s dirty little secret—have presented themselves in one sweet talkin’, dream hauntin’ package. One weekend with Wade, and Heath’s sure the devil himself has come a-knockin’.

Warning: Contains Southern accents wielded like weapons of desire, a snarky, do-gooder Pennsylvanian, and two boys deserving of true love.

Synopsis

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole.
My other half– my twin brother, my Finn– is crazy.
I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me.
I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline.
Dare DuBray.
He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me.
He has the power to destroy me.
Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt.
Why? Because of a secret.
A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming.
You won’t either.

Review

When Courtney asked if I would read Nocte as an early reader I jumped at the chance, she is one of my go to authors and I love anything she writes.

She did tell me Nocte was unlike anything she had written and I knew some of the back story, however this did not decrease the impact the book had on me, weeks later I am still thinking about the what, how, where and when, my head just about exploded with theories as I read it, again none of those theories could have even compared to what I read and the emotions I went through.
Being one of the first readers of Nocte I had no one to talk to, no support and all I wanted to do was scream that everyone needed to read this book so I had someone to share the emotional upheaval in my life.
Here is a timeline of my read of Nocte
10pm- Start
10.30- WTF omg TEARS
11pm PM Courtney because I don’t know how to control my emotions and I need to talk to someone
Midnight til 2am I am completely and utterly engrossed and entranced by this book, there are no words to even describe the emotions I went through in those 2 hours, there was tears… lots of tears and heart thumping moments where when I closed my eyes I pictured the scene as if it was playing out a movie in my head.
2am – 6am- Because I had no one to talk to other than my tormentor (we will call her Courtney), I was up until 6am just rambling and sobbing in tandem.
This review may be a complete ramble to you all, but that is how my brain and heart reacted, this book is fucking phenomenal (I don’t normally swear in reviews either).
I felt every emotion, played out every scene in my head, until I was a ball of messed up but I love being messed up like this, because as I said earlier this book has stuck with me for weeks!
I know I haven’t given anything away, this is because you MUST experience Nocte for yourself, take it in, breathe and release, then come find me and we can chat. I was  blown away complete with goosbumps and you will be too!
