From the outside, Abby’s life looks like a fairytale.

Loving family, wealthy lifestyle, education at a prestigious university. The truth? She’s barely managing to survive. Few know the nightmare she lived before she was adopted. And no one knows the secret agony that still haunts her nightmares.

With a degree from Berkeley, she could have gone anywhere, but she’s back in Colorado. Not for a fresh start—fresh starts are only an illusion—but for Wes Ahern. Her protector, who throws around words like “therapy” and “talk to me.” Her brother in every way but blood. The one man she wishes could be so much more.

Maybe, just this once, she can stop running from her demons.

But does she dare let Wes see inside the darkest closets of her pain…or will love be the biggest mistake of her life? 


Excerpt:

I can pinpoint the moment when Abigail Lyons lost her optimism. It was the day her grandmother died. That’s when I began to talk about myself in third person, imagining the worst that could happen and learning to dissociate when my brain couldn’t handle the input. 

It was the same day I stopped laughing with ease and speaking my mind confidently. At sixteen though, that’s when I went quiet for good. The day I lost all hope, became swallowed by loneliness—leaving nothing more than a scared bundle of nerves who wanted to jump out of her own skin. At twenty-three not much has changed. But I try to hide my flaws and fears. Somedays I’m brave enough to fight against my mind to conquer the latter. Other days, I’m not so lucky. 

Like my fear of flying with a bunch of strangers. As the plane takes off, I close my eyes, hold onto my bracelet, and count the crystals. I’m not a fan of airplanes. They’re too small, there are too many people on board and anything could happen during the flight. Though, according to my best friend, Wes, the probabilities of dying in a plane crash are one in eleven million. He once explained to me that it’s more likely to be hit by a meteorite, drown in my own bathtub, or get mauled by a bear in Yellowstone than die in a plane crash. 

He might be right about those statistics. But logic doesn’t apply to my phobia. Every time a plane takes off, my heart beats faster than a cheetah hunting for her next meal and sweat drips down my back. Honestly, I’m not afraid that the plane will lose altitude or collide with another aircraft. I fear that I’ll crash emotionally during the flight. The question for me isn’t whether or not the pilot loses control. My mind is asking, what if I have a full-blown panic attack in an environment where I don’t have control or any means for emotional release? 

When the pilot announces that we’re allowed to turn on our laptops and move around the cabin, I put on my wireless headphones and turn on my music. If I’m lucky, the two glasses of wine I downed before boarding, plus the one I drank before takeoff, might help me sleep during the almost three-hour flight. If I’m asleep, I won’t have to think about the people around me. Or the possibility of him finding me once I’m back in Denver. 

My throat tightens at the mere thought of seeing him again. I shut my eyes, squeezing them hard. My body trembles. It’s been so long that he shouldn’t have any effect on me. I count, controlling my breathing. But it’s impossible to calm myself when the images of what happened that night come back. The voices are back too. My heart beats wildly. 

Please, God, help me. 

Not now.

Book Blitz: A Perfect Mistake by Laura Brown

A Perfect Mistake 
by Laura Brown 
Published by: Lakewater Press
Publication date: November 12th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Goodreads


Falling for the forbidden has never felt so right…

When social worker Nica Anders indulges in one night of sexual passion with delicious Deaf man Cam Thompson, the last thing she expects is to see him the next day while visiting her dying client. He’s Cassie’s grandson and caregiver, the one treat she shouldn’t have tasted. Now her job is on the line, demanding she stay away.

But their attraction is building like a raging inferno and Nica can’t help but get burned.

Cam Thompson’s life is a mess. He’s losing his grandmother, the one person who’s supported him his whole life, and her dying wish is for him to settle down with a good woman—specifically her social worker Nica Anders. Despite Nica trying to hold tight to her ethics, he’s falling for her hard and fast. 

Yet Cam’s grandmother isn’t the only matchmaker in his family, and someone’s determined to keep him and Nica apart.

Steamy, touching, heart-warming. A much-needed #OwnVoices romance to go perfectly with that plate of chocolate brownies and glass of wine!


Excerpt:

Her spark returned, the same I had grown up with, and I forgot about her struggle with her knitting.

I’m right about you and Veronica,” she signed.

Give it time.”

Time.” She shook her head and reached for her knitting. Before her hands could grasp the blue strands she turned back to me. “Time will steal everything from you if you give it a chance. Time stole your father from me, and nothing I could ever do would get that back.”

I swallowed the lump in my throat. The closest thing to a relationship I had with my father was the memories my grandparents held on to. The man hardly ever interacted with me unless my mother told him to be the disciplinarian. I leaned forward and placed one hand on hers. “That’s why I don’t want a relationship.”

Grandma shook her head, her brow creased in determination. “It’s not the relationship, it’s the who. That’s why I want to set you up, to find a match to be good to you. And you won’t find a better one than Veronica.” Grandma turned to Grant. “You help him out, this Veronica is good for him. He’ll need her.” She faced me. “Make sure she visits me before I go.”

I had a sneaking suspicion her will to fight just grew stronger.

I’m not here to kiss and make up. I’m looking for my missing sister.

Ugh. I so don’t need Leo’s protection.
Don’t even get me started on his oh-so-secret past.

The best part? He doesn’t have a clue what I’m hiding.
It’s got ten little fingers and ten little toes and eyes just like his.
I’m no beauty. He’s too beast. Fun times ahead.
They say you can’t run forever.
Sometimes you stand. Sometimes you fight.
And sometimes an unbroken hero barges back in to lay down the law…

Excerpt:

I’m sure she’ll say yes. I think.

But there’s this breathless moment when I think I might be about to get my heart crushed. She just stares at me with her eyes so wide, unblinking.

Goddamn, I know she loves me. Know she wants to run away with me.

But what if I’ve pushed too hard, too fast? It’s honestly asking a lot after the life she’s been trapped in. This much change just might be terrifying and—

“Yes!” she cries, tumbling down into my arms, barely catching the ring box to clasp it between our twined hands.

Then comes the kiss to end all kisses. It tastes wet and salty, her tears flowing freely.

Maybe not just hers, even if I’ll never admit it out loud.

Even if she’d said no, I’d still have done everything in my power to protect her.

To save her from that wretched man.

Still, the fact that she wants to leave that life behind not just as my lover, but as my wife means the damn universe.

It’s everything. It makes everything I’ve endured to get here worth it.

The pain. The torture. The conditioning. The brainwashing that even now scares me, when I’ve done everything I can to fake compliance while fighting the command triggers burned into my grey matter.

She’s the one reason I’ve been able to hold on.

And she doesn’t even know how long she’s been keeping me together.

One fine day, I’ll tell her.

I’ll tell her how young Tiger fought against his bonds each and every time Dr. Ross held him down and injected him with burning shit to make him more obedient and whispered the same words to him over and over and over, engraving them deep in his brain.

I’ll tell her how that boy held on to her and wouldn’t let him take the memory of a pretty girl twirling a flower between her fingers under the summer sun, and the shy, sweet way she looked at him.

I’ll tell her about an older kid wondering who she grew into, now and then dreaming her voice. The same voice I remembered hearing deep down in the catacombs under the mansion.

I’ll tell her about carving her face into thin slips of wood, carving flowers I swore I’d give her one day, holding on to them when I felt like I’d break at the slightest provocation.

I’ll tell her how sometimes the neat lines between love and obsession get so blurred, I can’t even breathe anymore without picturing her.

That’s why I want to save her so much.

Because Clarissa saved me.

Right now isn’t the time for those words, though. Now’s the time for tearful kisses, for the tight roughness in my throat, for her arms around my neck and her body against mine, and then we’re hand in hand, and I’m sliding that pretty, slender engagement ring on her delicate finger.

I can’t stop smiling, and my smile echoes on her lips, in her eyes.

We don’t need to say a word as we stand, picking at the flowers from the edge of the cliff, hand in hand.

Yeah, it’s that corny old legend, the lovers of Heart’s Edge.

That old promise.

The one where they say if you toss flowers over the cliff with the person you love, maybe you’ll be together forever.

So we pluck the petals with starry-eyed looks and hold them up high. And when we cast them over the edge and into the wind, sending them swirling into the night, I think I can see our forever.

Little do we know that our promise ends in less than a week…

Book Blitz: My Billionaire Fake Fiance by Linda West

My Billionaire Fake Fiance 
by Linda West 
Publication date: November 5th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Goodreads


He needs a fiance to seal a deal. She needs a Christmas miracle to save her home.

Devlin is a sexy billionaire with a successful company that supplies boxes to Bamazon. Allie is an activist trying to save the trees. When these two opposites are forced to strike up a deal the fickle snow flurries of fate send them down a destined road they never expected. Set in the adorable snow town of Kissing Bridge with a quirky loveable cast of characters sure to make you smile.


Excerpt:

He looked up with a sneer that somehow made him even more handsome than his usual dumb-looking, charming Peter Pan look. 

“Anyway, would you like me to take you home now?” I tried to keep the hope out of my voice.

He pulled the ring out of his pocket and looked at it wistfully. “No. I have to fix this somehow. I just have to think.” He hit himself on the side of the head a little too hard. 

I winced. Ouch.

More head hitting—this time harder.

“Hey—hey, stop that,” I said. “You’ll hurt yourself.” 

Devlin stopped like a child that had been reprimanded and stared at the ring again in a trance. Rich people problems. Maybe I should take him to his therapist.

“What, exactly, were you trying to get your fiancée to do?” I had to ask. “Because you obviously didn’t want her to be herself.”

 Devlin threw his hands up.   “She’s beautiful.”

 I rolled my eyes.  

“And?”

“Balderdash! I thought she was fine being single. Women!” 

I looked at him with no sympathy.

He let out a big sigh. “My father’s a traditionalist. I just thought it would be better this way. Make him happy. Win-win.” 

I shook my head.

“In what logical world did you think that you were going to bring home an exotic dancer and get her to act like she was a perfect 50’s wife?” 

He clenched his hands.

“Right, I was crazy.”

“Well, if you just needed a darn fake date, you would have been better off grabbing somebody off the street than trying to remake Sofia Denario!”

She has the chance to create the future she wants . . . but first she’ll have to face her past.

Young, vibrant, and willing to confront any obstacle in her path, Bree Yarbrough has spent the last few years traveling the world and learning from the great artists. Only, her work has yet to strike a lasting chord. When her hometown mentor reaches out with an opportunity that will set her on the path to success, she knows she can’t say no. But once back in Silver Creek, she discovers she isn’t the only one who’s returned home. Justin Cory has as well—and he’s living next door. She may have made a fool of herself over him before, but Bree isn’t the kind of girl to let past mortification stand in the way of something she wants.

The last ten years of Justin Cory’s life has been driven by one focus: go to school, get his physical therapy degree, and return home so he can be there for his mom. But now that he’s back, he can’t stop thinking about the night that changed his life forever—and the guilt he can’t escape. Fun, irresistible, and once-best-friend Bree seems like the perfect distraction. She isn’t sticking around past the holidays, so he doesn’t have to worry she’ll expect more than he can give. But as they spend the season together, stolen mistletoe kisses start to feel all too right. However, with the future uncertain and the past hanging over them, it may take more than mistletoe to get from Christmas to forever.


Excerpt:

“Bree.”

Speak of the devil.

She steeled her resolve before turning to face him. “Justin.” She didn’t know what else to say.

He didn’t seem to have any ideas for conversation either, as after he locked his gaze on hers, he then turned and stared at the blank wall on the other side of the room. She didn’t follow suit. Instead, she watched him. And she told herself not to think about how good he looked. Or how much she’d missed him in the last three and a half years.

He sported a trim beard now that was just a touch shorter than his dark hair. His lips were still both a firm slash under a straight nose and as sinfully gentle-looking and kissable as they’d always been. And his lashes remained long, thick, and insanely sexy around his soulful hazel eyes.

Geez, she could so fall under the spell of this man again. 

Geez . . . she so had to get a grip, or the next six weeks were going to be both mentally painful as well as sexually frustrating. 

She rolled her eyes. She wouldn’t let the latter happen no matter what. Because she was over him. It only took one time of offering herself to a man and having him turn her down—while he also pointed out that if sex did happen, it would be nothing more than sex—for her to get a clue. Justin Cory wasn’t for her, and she wasn’t for him. End of story.

“Mom tells me you haven’t given her a decision yet.” Justin finally spoke, and as he did, those soulful, see-too-much eyes turned back to her.

“You’ve talked to her?” She’d only been gone from Mrs. Cory’s office for three minutes.

“She texted as soon as you left. Says I have to make sure you stay in town.”

At this, Bree lifted her brows. “You have to make sure?” Why on earth would that be the case?

He lifted a shoulder. “She seems to think it’s my fault that you never come home for more than a couple of days.”

It was.

And my fault that you left in the first place.”

Bree stared at him, unwilling to agree to either statement. “And here I always thought of your mother as a smart woman.” 

At her reply, Justin merely blinked. 

“You know that I’d always intended to leave,” she pointed out. She also fervently hoped he’d forgotten that she’d also once offered to leave with him.

“That’s what I told Mom.”

“Then I don’t understand why you’re even standing here.”

His jaw tensed, and his eyes went flat like they had Friday night. “I’m standing here because my mother asked me to. Can I tell her your answer is yes?”

He could tell his mother anything he wanted to. But she wasn’t telling him a thing.

Book Blitz: Aces High: A Second Chance MC Romance by M. Never

Aces High: A Second Chance MC Romance 
by M. Never 
Publication date: September 25th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Goodreads


From USA Today bestselling author M. Never, comes a hot, steamy, adventurous second chance romance.

Ten years ago, all Liv Ward wanted was my love. What she got was a broken heart instead.

When The Bowman’s death causes my world to come crashing down the only silver lining is it brings Liv, his daughter, back into my life. The last thing the sharp, artsy, brunette wants is anything to do with me. But time away and grief do strange things to people, bringing them together in unexpected ways. Like, drunk and horny and naked in your bed.

With my options running out, I find myself in a cut throat race against time, fighting for the woman I want back all while trying to figure out exactly how to stay alive. 

Now…
I have two weeks left to live. 
Two weeks to come up with one hundred thousand dollars. 
Two weeks to convince the woman I love she loves me, too.


Aces High is a complete standalone in the Baum Squad MC universe. It includes intense sexual situations and some violence. Reader discretion is advised.


Excerpt:

Kissing Liv in the past versus kissing Liv in the present is pretty much the same. It’s electrifying, juiced with adrenaline. I take immediate charge, trapping her head and driving my tongue straight into her mouth. She’s as willing now as she was then, maybe even more so. A small part of me wishes this was happening under different circumstances, but that’s life, right? You take what you can get. And I want Liv. I want her naked, and writhing, and moaning. Free. I want her free from the pain that is destined to follow her for the rest of her life. Because when you love someone that much and you lose them too soon, the hurt only dulls. It never disappears. Planted on the curved couch, we furiously work to strip each other naked. I pull down the straps of her soft tank top to reveal a pair of perfect, perky breasts. I bury my face between them as Liv pulls at the button of my jeans. It pops, and the zipper explodes, allowing her to push the denim down my thighs. We’re a mess of hands and lips and tongues. Tipsy from the tequila and wired from the coke. It’s a dangerous combination—sex, drugs, and alcohol. It strips away all inhibitions and leads us down a blind, wild path.
