Published 02/12/2013 by leannecrabtree

Thrash Ebook Cover

Name: Thrash (Bayonet Scars, #2)
Author: JC Emery

Release Date: January 2014

Synopsis:

Loneliness suffocates the heart. Acceptance breaks down walls.

As a Lost Girl to the Forsaken Motorcycle Club, Nicole Whelan knows how to party. She’s not cut-out for relationships and her life is way too complicated for anything more than casual encounters. But one night when she falls into Duke’s bed at the clubhouse, he sees something in her that he can’t let go of—no matter how many times she tries to run.

Having been left to raise her teenage brother, Jeremy, she’s already got her hands full and isn’t looking for anymore complications. But Duke’s just watched his best friend fall for the only girl he couldn’t have, and then lose her so shortly after, shaking him to his core. Faced with his own loneliness, he’s more determined than ever to break down Nic’s walls and show her that he can be good for her; but he’s got a bad track record and she’s got a bad temper. Changing his ways isn’t easy when he’s not sure what he’s even changing for.

The violence and turmoil are at an all-time high, and Forsaken is in a vulnerable place when a twist of fate breathes new life into the club. It’s a much-needed beacon of hope for the embattled biker family, even if everyone’s not exactly on board. With Duke and Nic’s relationship already on shaky ground, and something even more important at stake, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club will fight like hell to keep their family together and whole.

Love is never more precious than when it’s new.

ABOUT DREW + FABLE FOREVER:

Monica Murphy returns with her most beloved characters, Drew and Fable, in this eBook original short story that brings her bestselling New Adult series full circle.

Fantasy. How I ended up with NFL player Drew Callahan, the guy every woman wants, is beyond my wildest dreams. All I know is that once he chose me as his one and only, I sure wasn’t looking back. I had past wounds and he showed patience and concern—even accepting responsibility for my messed-up kid brother. Now, yet again, he’s found a way to blow my mind: an exotic wedding and honeymoon miles and miles away from home. What else could a girl ever ask for?

Reality. Except now the honeymoon’s over. Drew’s football schedule takes him on the road constantly, while I need to stay put and look after my brother until he finishes high school—because God knows our sorry excuse for a mother won’t. I know Drew loves me with all his heart, and I’ll always be over the moon about him. This just isn’t how I imagined life as newlyweds . . . dealing with the distance, missing him constantly. But we’ve gone through hard times before. We can get through this, too, right? We’re Drew and Fable, together forever. At least I hope so. . . .

EXCERPT:

“We should check out Ocean Avenue tomorrow,” Drew whispers close to my ear, amusement tingeing his deep voice.

“What? Are you serious?” Even though I’ve come to terms with being here, it doesn’t mean I want to linger and make it a serious vacation. Besides, Drew needs to get back home so he can resume practice.

“Well yeah, remember the spot where we kissed?” His eyes are warm as they search my face, filled with so much love I feel my heart swell.

“Yes,” I whisper achingly. “Of course I remember.”

“I want to go back there.” He tucks a strand of hair behind my ear, his index finger lingering on my skin. “I want to kiss you again in that little alley and remember how wet we were from the rain. How nervous I was. I was scared you might reject me.”

I’d felt the same way. We’d dealt with much of the same feelings and fears and hadn’t even known it.

“I want to take you to that store where you got the dress that just about killed me and buy you whatever you want,” he continues, his fingers drifting across my jaw. My eyes flutter closed as memories rush back at me. “I want to sit outside the dressing room and have you come out to show me every single thing you’re trying on.”

That he remembers all the little details sends a thrill of pleasure spiraling to the very depths of my soul.

“And then I want to wander off for a bit and let you do whatever you want, secretly hoping that you’ll send me a text that says marshmallow. Though if you don’t that’s okay because I’ll send you one instead.” He offers up a crooked smile and the sight of it cracks my heart wide open, overflowing with so much pure love for him I want to cry. “Because we made a deal. Whenever we see or hear that word,

the other comes running. I’ll always be the one to rescue you, Fable. You never have to worry about that.”

Book Review – Willing Captive

Published 27/11/2013 by leannecrabtree

18071296

Name: Willing Captive

Author: Belle Aurora

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Funny, New Adult

Release Date: 26th September 2013

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Delilah “Lily” Flynn is used to her drab existence. Lily’s been living it for twenty two years.
Her boring life is suddenly turned on its head when she’s rudely kidnapped from her bedroom.
Or so she thinks.

Nox Taylor is far too high up in his field to be assigned a babysitting job.
There’s nothing more he wants than to complete his mission so he can be rid of the smartass tomboy, Lily.

Day after day, Nox watches Lily and her strange ways. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever met.
Getting close to the girl is purely for her own protection…right?

Lily never imagined she’d make her first real friends in captivity.
What lengths would she go through to keep them?

After seeing a lot of people I follow on Goodreads giving this 5 stars, I just had to buy it yesterday when it was 77p and then just couldn’t resist reading it and WOW!

I loved this. From start to finish, I was hooked.

I liked Lily. She was both sweet and fiery and gave as good as she got when needed. As for Nox, he had a cockiness to him that drew me in from the moment he removed his mask. I loved watching their relationship develop throughout, it was both fun and sweet and I fell in love with them.

The storyline was interesting and unique. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen but I’ll tell you now, I was NOT disappointed.

I wasn’t expecting for the…case? to finish at the 75%-ish mark and from there I was wondering where it was going to go with still a quarter of the book to read. I’ll admit for a good 10% or so I had a steady stream of tears running down my cheeks, thinking: No! I refuse to believe it! and then the tears continued for a different reason.

It’s a sweet and emotional story with a thread of humour throughout and it was right up my street. If anyone knows a story like this (and/or Wallbanger by Alice Clayton) then please let me know. Thanks.

I highly recommend you read this if you like romances with a bit of humour and a captivating storyline 🙂

Cover Reveal – Whispers and Wishes by Hollie Westring

Published 04/10/2013 by leannecrabtree

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00015]

Name: Whispers and Wishes
Author: Hollie Westring
Release Date: November 7th 2013

Synopsis:

Eliza Monroe has been traveling the United States for three years, immersing herself in the towns she visits as she searches for the mother she’s never known. She hopes returning to her grandmother’s inn in Sage Springs, Mo., will provide the break she needs to evaluate her lonely life.

What Eliza isn’t expecting is to have two men enter the picture, not making her decision to stay or leave any easier. One has been her foundation, while the other is as comfortable as she is hopping from city to city. Throw in a kooky grandmother, a cheerful best friend, a sarcastic guest, a town where residents and spirits interact like neighbors, and Eliza has little time to contemplate her future.

Friendships grow, webs are spun and lies are revealed before Eliza comes to terms with what she wants in life and learns what’s really important.

Tijan

Published 23/09/2013 by leannecrabtree

brokescrewed1 brokescrewed2 fallencresthigh

So as you may have noticed I’ve gone back to New Adult books, simply because I cant resist them. So I started reading Broken and Screwed by Tijan last night and I fell in love with the characters, though they drove me potty for a good portion of the book. As soon as I finished it earlier, I bought the second book in the series, Broken and Screwed 2 and I’m just over a third of the way through. It’s all looking much cheerier for the characters in this one, which is great.

I also have Fallen Crest High–I’ve had it for a while now–by Tijan and after reading these two, I cant help wondering why I haven’t read it sooner. I know there’s a second book in that series too, Fallen Crest Family, and if the first is anything like Broken, then I know I’ll devour it.

So I was just wondering have any of you read a book by Tijan? If you have, what did you think? Would you recommend any?

Cover Reveal – Four Seconds to Lose

Published 12/09/2013 by leannecrabtree

FSTL

Name: Four Seconds to Lose (Ten Tiny Breaths, #3)
Author: K.A. Tucker
Release Date: November 4th 2013

Synopsis:

Owning a strip club isn’t the fantasy most guys expect it to be. With long hours, a staff with enough issues to keep a psych ward in business, and the police regularly on his case, twenty-nine year old Cain is starting to second guess his unspoken mission to save the women he employs. And then blond, brown-eyed Charlie Rourke walks through his door, and things get really complicated. Cain abides by a strict “no sleeping with the staff” rule. But being around Charlie challenges Cain’s self-control…and it’s been a long time since any woman has done that.

Twenty-two-year old Charlie Rourke needs a lot of money, really fast, in order to vanish before it’s too late. Taking her clothes off for men makes her stomach curl but Charlie tells herself that at least she’s putting her acting and dancing skills to good use. And though her fellow dancers seem eager to nab their sexy, sophisticated, and genuinely caring boss, she’s not interested. After all, Charlie Rourke doesn’t really exist—and the girl pretending to be her doesn’t need to complicate her life with romance.

Unfortunately, Charlie soon discovers that developing feelings for Cain is inevitable, that those feelings may not be unrequited—but losing him when he finds out what she’s involved with will be more painful than any other sentence awaiting her.

TTB cover

The first in the series, Ten Tiny Breaths–an amazing book, I might add!–is going to be released in paperback on September 24th 2013!
