excerpt

I slid my hand around her waist, pulling her body against mine. Those tits. *****. I felt them press against my chest and hated the fact that I wasn’t feeling them against my bare skin.

She was an eager kisser—lips open wide, her tongue furiously swirling with mine—maybe the most aggressive kiss I’d ever had with a girl. And the little noises she was making were begging me to keep going.

Kissing her in this house, right here in the hallway between her room and what used to be my room, was one of the things I had wanted to do but never did. I’d had opportunities, especially on those nights when she would come to my room to watch TV or a movie. So many chances. Yet I resisted because I had to. She was off-limits back then.

Now? Forget it. There was no stopping this now that it had started.

Dawn was getting worked up fast. Pulling me closer to her. Lifting one of her legs and wrapping it around the back of my thigh. I’d been with horny girls before, but this was something else. This was pent-up frustration, anger, something…

Blurb:

In their final summer before graduating college, three childhood friends expect an uncomplicated transition to adulthood…but learn they all still have some growing up to do.

Alex Makapulo is facing a crisis of faith.

Raised a Catholic, Alex is considering becoming a member of her best friend Jack Page’s church—against her family’s wishes—but she can’t quite take the final step of baptism. Jack loves Alex and doesn’t understand her hesitation, and Alex wonders if Jack’s love is a blessing or a distraction to test her religious conviction.

Lori Hanson embarks on the trip of a lifetime.

For her twenty-second birthday, Lori’s grandfather presents her with a summer vacation in England. While preparing for her adventure, she meets British musician Colin Watson online and quickly falls for him. They plan to hook up when she lands in London, but her grandfather forbids it. Due to complicated family dynamics, Lori must regretfully comply with his wishes, though she vows never to forgive him.

Andy Taylor is looking for love in all the wrong places.

When Andy runs into an old crush, she decides she wants a more meaningful relationship with sexy Miles Webber. But when she confides in Alex, her friend warns her Miles only wants her for sex. Andy becomes angry and devises a reckless plan to distract Alex’s attention from her relationship. Things don’t go quite as she expected, though, and Andy is left facing a crushing moral dilemma.

As the summer unfolds, three young women learn love and faith go hand in hand, not everything is black and white, and sometimes in a fast-paced world you have to slow down, breathe a little, and find your own definition of love.

 

My Review

This story is a real inspiration to all. I loved the characters and felt that the author had written them well. Alex trying to decide about her faith In God. Lori and her trip abroad with her paternal grandfather, and Andy, looking for love in all the wrong places and ends pregnant, this is the year before their senior year of college and they have their lives all planned out.

I loved how the moral issues were brought into this story, and seemed like very real issues that many young adults go through, their questions about their lives and also how Faith in God can play out in their lives, rather they believe or not.  I think the friend’s in this story are so lucky to have each other and made this story really interesting to read. To me this isn’t the typical cliché type of book. These characters were all different and yet they have been friends for a long time and did encourage each other and tried to be there for each other.

I love reading books that make you think and feel you have gotten something out of the story, which I did.  This will be a book that I will reread and there are some parts in this book that I want to remember. Especially that last quarter of the book.  I also love that it is a clean, Christian book.

By Rhonda L. James

Genre: Romance

Age category: New Adult

Release Date: May 31, 2015

Blurb:

From the author of Across the Miles, comes the sequel to the love story of Sebastian and Brooke. Go back to the days after Brooke left for London, and find out what happened to place Sebastian in that hotel room with nothing but memories and a bottle of whiskey.

What happens to America’s favorite rock star when his picture perfect life falls apart? Again…

Sebastian and Brooke had a fairy tale romance, until one choice tore them apart. Brooke’s decision to move away and run Max Wolf’s struggling restaurant, Lardon’s, stands in the way of Sebastian’s plan to propose on the night of his birthday. They have a fight and he takes off, leaving her to board a plane to London without saying goodbye. While there, she meets Reid, a handsome chef who just happens to live in the same building she now calls home. Their newfound friendship, and Reid’s attraction to her, only adds to the strain on her already fragile relationship with Sebastian.

Then, one out of control night changes everything as they know it, and their relationship is put to the test. Now, do they fight for what they love? Or choose to walk away? Will facing your demons destroy you? Or make you stronger? Surely, a love that was meant to be can face any obstacle.

A force too strong to ignore. A need so deep it aches. Undying love.

A heart may be broken, but it keeps on beating. And never gives up.

Jacob

As a rule, men don’t grow up believing in a happily ever after. We don’t believe in meeting the love of our lives; or the white picket fence, and 2.5 children. Every man thinks that those stupid dreams or fantasies are just nonexistent shit until it happens to them. We should have been forewarned.
I wish I was prepared for someone to appear in my life and change all my priorities. I suddenly wanted that fence and children. The part of meeting the love of my life became very real, but I wasn’t ready for suddenly losing it all, and my life plummeting into this shithole forever.
The heartbreak of losing your soulmate is one of the worst pains you will ever live with. I should campaign and warn the young people. Vaccinate against love because if you lose it, you could lose yourself for the rest of your life. The burden on your back will forever mark you and wither away your soul, darkening your days and the rest of your natural life.

This isn’t false advertisement or a dramatic display of one bitter soul.

Pria

I fought by my mother’s side until her last breath, and tried to help my father until his last memories dissipated. My sister is the last one standing, but her life is a miracle that can end at any given moment. All my life I’ve never been alone, but always felt lonely.

Today, my options on how to live my life are endless, yet my heart and my best friend limit them. Stay in Seattle, close to the one person that will never let me inside his world.

The thug, as mom would’ve called him. A man with a bad boy attitude and a heart bigger than the ocean.

claudia b.

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new adventure.

She now lives in Colorado working as a CFO for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.

excerpt

Compassion for his friend filled Joseph’s whole being as he stared at him. Surely, there has to be another way? He couldn’t resist asking himself. No answer came and he shook his head before joining his friend. When he stood next to him, he turned so he could face him.

“Please… don’t.” He begged. “I have tried every possible avenue. Arianna assured me there is no alternative.” he answered Joseph’s unspoken question.

“So you must die?” he asked, his voice constricting.

Roan gave a curt nod. “You must understand that I have no choice…”

“Everybody has a choice!” Joseph shouted.

“Not me.” He swallowed, trying to keep his emotions intact. “If I don’t…”

“What then?”

“We are not the only ones who will lose… The humans will be the ones to suffer most.”

He gazed thoughtfully at their leader. “Please, think of Miguel?”

Bang! Roan’s fist met the wall. Small stone fragments flew in all directions. “I have!” He growled.

Genre: Women’s Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Family Saga
Release Date: August 1, 2015

Book Blurb

The second book in The Boots My Mother Gave Me series, Sole Sister picks up several years later, continuing the story of Harley LeBeau and her rebellious sister Katrina ‘Kat’ LeBeau.

Relocating to Nashville to be closer to Harley and Miah, Kat aspires to launch her Sole Sister fashion line. A gutsy and impromptu plan suddenly lands her on the cover of The Ville Spill—the local celebrity gossip rag—alongside country music’s latest heartthrob, giving Sole Sister the push it needs. But Kat quickly learns that not all press is good press.

Years removed from an abusive childhood and teenage pregnancy, the past that Kat never talks about continues to seep into her life and relationships. Still struggling with the images of finding her father after his suicide, Kat forges ahead, vowing to avoid past mistakes. To focus on her career and responsibilities as a single mother, she swears off the disappointments of love. The first man she ever loved, her father, broke her heart. The first boy she ever fell in love with, her daughter’s father, broke her heart.

What Kat didn’t plan on was Nashville SWAT Officer Connor Reese. She and Connor have more pulling them together than keeping them apart. Kat finds herself in familiar territory when her plan to steer clear of heartache is derailed after spending a night in his arms. Will facing her past help to secure her future? Will Connor offer her a second chance at life and love? Or will her heart break yet again?

Staying true to its predecessor, Sole Sister explores the dynamics of strength in sisterhood, the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between a mother and daughter, and the courage to become more than one’s past.

excerpt

This was my old pattern: fall in the sack and fall in love. Where did that ever get me? Don’t be so immature, Kat. This is needing. We’re just needing.

“Don’t do that,” he whispered, shaking me gently.

What? What was I doing? Still moving in slow motion with him, it felt like I—we—were doing everything just right.

“Get out of your head,” he continued, as though he could read the introspection in my eyes.

“I’m not,” I lied. “I just don’t want…” I couldn’t make the rest of the words come.

“You don’t want to feel…fall?” He never broke rhythm, the cadence of his hips as sweet and provocative as his lips.

My back arched with the flow of his thrust, relaxing on the ebb, allowing just enough time for my compressed reply. “Do you?”

“What do you think I’m doing here?” And there was that grin, less audacious this time but equally sincere.

There was no room for talk momentarily, carnal moans, groans, purrs, and growls taking precedence as our bodies neared the summit. So instinctive, our bodies—our primitive minds. Ah, hell, who needs a brain?

“I want to…I really want to.” My bottled-up whisper, barely audible, felt safe. What was it I was professing that I wanted to do exactly? Fall or come? I clenched my legs tighter around his backside, locking him in. No more playing around, I needed him right there with me.

“You fall, I fall,” he grunted between thrusts.

‘You come, I come,’ I recalled the words I said to him in the backroom of my shop. Fall or come. Maybe he was as confused as I was.
