SIGNED PAPERBACKS GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Edge of Always by JA Redmerski

SIGNED PAPERBACKS GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Edge of Always by JA Redmerski

EXCERPT I turn to Andrew again, waiting for him to spit it out. A cold breeze rushes through my knitted sweater, and I hide my hands inside the sleeves. “You have five minutes to throw all of your stuff in your bag,” he says, and my heart is beating erratically before he finishes the sentence. He taps his wrist where there is no watch. “Not a second more.” “Andrew—” “This isn’t up for debate,” he says. “Go get your stuff.” I just look at him, face blank. My theory was right, but I didn’t want it to be. I don’t want to go on the road…I mean, I do…but it’s not right. It’s just not right. “You have four minutes now.” “But we can’t just leave like this,” I argue. “It would be rude.” I point at Asher. “And Asher just got here. Don’t you want to visit with—” “I… Read more »

DREW + FABLE FOREVER – Release Day Launch!

DREW + FABLE FOREVER – Release Day Launch!

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… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Layers by Sigal Ehrlich

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Layers by Sigal Ehrlich

REVIEW: Layers is an adult romance with Hayley, forced into applying for an internship after losing a bet. And Daniel, Mr. Stark, the billionaire owner of the company where said bet is carried through to the end. I found the beginning to be a little too fast. I did enjoy this book, and the characters were well developed, but the actual relationship really wasn’t. I didn’t really like Daniel. He treated his employees pretty bad, and although he was sweet with Hayley, it was very Jekyll and Hyde. Even Hayley mentions this, so it was on purpose. Even though he had a good explanation for why he was so aloof, I just didn’t connect with him all that much until the very end. The pacing was good and there was a lot going on in the book. One thing in particular was the running internal monologue in Hayley’s head. I… Read more »

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Where Life Takes You by Claudia Y. Burgoa

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Where Life Takes You by Claudia Y. Burgoa

  EXCERPT: My heart thundered as he released one hand and slowly moved it up and down my bare back. I listened to my body and let the music and Dan take me. We didn’t speak, we allowed the movements and beats to talk for us. Once he knew I’d stay close, he released my hips and back. His hands wandered around every line, curve, and corner of my body. I simply kept my hands over his chest, enjoying the moment. Our eyes locked, and he playfully mouthed I love you. Those words meant the world to me, and not thinking twice, I put my hands on the back of his neck and made him bent over me, so I could whisper at him, “I love you, Danny.” Dan placed his forehead over mine and closed his eyes tightly. “Say it again, baby, please,” he said. “I love you.” His… Read more »

EXCERPT – MEANT FOR ME MASON I didn’t realize how much she despised me until the moment I stepped into the doorway and Claire saw me, and I saw the outright venom in her eyes. From that look alone I knew she wouldn’t take me back, but it wasn’t going to stop me from trying. I came here for a reason and I’m not leaving until I do what I told myself I was going to do. I was going to put everything on the line. As I watched Claire turn her back on me and walk away, I had the deepest urge to handcuff her to a chair and make her listen to me. However, forcing her would only push her away even more. When I handcuffed her to anything it would be out of mere pleasure, not anger. I was determined to get her back. Rushing out of… Read more »
