He taught me how to keep my emotions in check and how the outside world is a cruel place. He said there was no such thing as love, because love hurts people, and it makes people weak.



He said I wasn’t weak.



My whole world changed when I met Ryan. He made me feel different, in a good way. As our friendship progressed so did my feelings. Feelings I wasn’t supposed to have. And I wasn’t sure they’d be reciprocated. After a stint in jail, it only made his heart harder. 



But I was always the one there, to pick up the pieces. I just wasn’t sure how long I’d keep doing it. I was just a girl in love with a guy that I couldn’t have.

Synopsis:

There’s a girl asleep by my bed. Her name’s Sophie and she’s the love of my life.
She doesn’t know that. I’ve never told her, nor given her any clues. I’ve been careful. I’ve been diligent. I’ve been the biggest asshole the world has seen.
To her. And to everyone.
But after I fell sick, she came back and she’s still here. I don’t know why, if it means anything, what she wants from me.
I know I want everything from her but I can’t ask for it.
Because I fucked up, I’m probably dying, and it’s too late for second chances… right?

This short novel is a standalone story in the Wild Men world (companion to Dark Child), and will release in October as part of the Cards of Love 2018 series.

📝MY REVIEW📝:

StrengthStrength by Jo Raven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars
Oh wow! This was another amazing book by one of my favorite authors. Jo Raven has a talent for writing that is so unique. No other author I have read, tortures their heroes like she does. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to watch a character suffer and be able to do nothing but read faster to get to the HEA. Jo raven writes from the heart and amazes me constantly.

If you’ve read Dark Child then you know of Griffin and Sophie. And while you do not have to read that book prior to Strength, I recommend you do because there are quite a few mentions that might make the book even more enjoyable for you.

Griffin is going through dark times. Not only does he suffer from PTSD, there is an issue with his health. My heart broke for this man over and over. In addition to his self-loathing, Griffin believes himself unworthy of Sophie’s love. Sophie was an amazing, strong character. She was just what Griff needed to help him heal. Sophie would teach this tortured man how to love as well.

I can go on but that would mean I’d have to give you details and since I refuse to ruin this book for you, you will have to read it on your own. I promise if you are already a fan of Jo’s, she won’t let you down. And if you haven’t read anything by her yet, I absolutely recommend that you do!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Trent
How do you go home when home is gone?
I’ve paid my dues for protecting someone I love.
In return my family, my life, and my freedom—all taken from me.
When a friend calls in a favor, I go from nothing…to having a job and a place to live.
A fresh start brings something more; a woman who brings out my protective instincts.
She’s been hurt—it’s written all over her.
There’s one thing for sure, I want her.
And I vow that nothing will ever harm her again.
Michelle
I’ve hit rock bottom, and I’ve slowly climbed my way back up.
Now, I keep myself locked away. It’s easier than letting people in and telling them about that night.
I live my life in the shadows because happiness is something that I can’t have.
I keep my pain where it belongs, in the past. I keep my secrets buried deep down.
Now my past is colliding with my future, and I’m not sure how I’m going to survive.
But in the midst of the darkness is a shining light: Trent.
Sometimes you find home in the place you least expect it.

 
KL Humphreys lives in Ireland with the love of her life and her baby girl. In a way, the world has him to thank for her debut novel, Deadly Hunt. After years of thinking about writing the story that had been dying to get out of her head, she finally confided in her other half. He gave her all the encouragement she needed to get the story out, he has been with her every step of the way.
 
KL loves music, especially pop, R’n’B and rap and if she’s writing you will find it playing somewhere nearby. She also loves all romance novels but of course, Romantic Suspense is her go-to genre. When she isn’t writing it…it’s a good bet she is curled up somewhere reading it.

10. Even The Darkest Stars

(Even The Darkest Stars #1)

26958226

By Heather Fawcett

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis: Kamzin has always dreamed of becoming one of the Emperor’s royal explorers, the elite climbers tasked with mapping the wintry, mountainous Empire and spying on its enemies. She knows she could be the best in the world, if only someone would give her a chance.

But everything changes when the mysterious and eccentric River Shara, the greatest explorer ever known, arrives in her village and demands to hire Kamzin—not her older sister Lusha, as everyone had expected—for his next expedition. This is Kamzin’s chance to prove herself—even though River’s mission to retrieve a rare talisman for the emperor means climbing Raksha, the tallest and deadliest mountain in the Aryas. Then Lusha sets off on her own mission to Raksha with a rival explorer who is determined to best River, and Kamzin must decide what’s most important to her: protecting her sister from the countless perils of the climb or beating her to the summit.

The challenges of climbing Raksha are unlike anything Kamzin expected—or prepared for—with avalanches, ice chasms, ghosts, and even worse at every turn. And as dark secrets are revealed, Kamzin must unravel the truth of their mission and of her companions—while surviving the deadliest climb she has ever faced.

9. Shadow of The Fox

(Shadow of The Fox #1)

36672988

By Julie Kagawa

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis: One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos.

Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.

Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart.

With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

7. Roomies

34466910

By Christina Lauren

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis: From subway to Broadway to happily ever after. Modern love in all its thrill, hilarity, and uncertainty has never been so compulsively readable as in New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren’s romantic novel.

Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.

For months Holland Bakker has invented excuses to descend into the subway station near her apartment, drawn to the captivating music performed by her street musician crush. Lacking the nerve to actually talk to the gorgeous stranger, fate steps in one night in the form of a drunken attacker. Calvin Mcloughlin rescues her, but quickly disappears when the police start asking questions.

Using the only resource she has to pay the brilliant musician back, Holland gets Calvin an audition with her uncle, Broadway’s hottest musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until his reason for disappearing earlier becomes clear: he’s in the country illegally, his student visa having expired years ago.

Seeing that her uncle needs Calvin as much as Calvin needs him, a wild idea takes hold of her. Impulsively, she marries the Irishman, her infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves and Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway—in the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting—will Holland and Calvin to realize that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?

Now Hogwarts is being patrolled by the dementors, the Azkaban guards who are hunting Sirius. But Harry can’t imagine that Sirius or, for that matter, the evil Lord Voldemort could be more frightening than the dementors themselves, who have the terrible power to fill anyone they come across with aching loneliness and despair. Meanwhile, life continues as usual at Hogwarts. A top-of-the-line broom takes Harry’s success at Quidditch, the sport of the Wizarding world, to new heights. A cute fourth-year student catches his eye. And he becomes close with the new Defense of the Dark Arts teacher, who was a childhood friend of his father. Yet despite the relative safety of life at Hogwarts and the best efforts of the dementors, the threat of Sirius Black grows ever closer. But if Harry has learned anything from his education in wizardry, it is that things are often not what they seem. Tragic revelations, heartwarming surprises, and high-stakes magical adventures await the boy wizard in this funny and poignant third installment of the beloved series.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

As Jude becomes more deeply embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, she discovers her own capacity for trickery and bloodshed. But as betrayal threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

BLOG TOUR ~ The Pieces That Built Me by Amber Lacie ~ Genre: #NewAdultRomance


The Pieces that Built Me
by Amber Lacie
New Adult Romance



 


Every person is a puzzle made up of many different pieces, each connecting perfectly to the pieces around it. After a while, a picture begins to come into focus, and then we, the puzzle creator, can finally make sense of the beauty displayed before us.
It was different for me. Some of my pieces were bent or twisted, but I made them fit. It wasn’t until I finally let him in that I realized I was missing one important piece…

Love.

I knew how to give it. What I didn’t know was how to accept it––until he showed me how…



“Do you remember the first day we met?”
“Yeah––I was waiting with Daniel at school and you walked up.  Why?”
“That was the first day I started writing my own songs.  As hard as I tried, they always felt empty. Do you remember the first time we kissed?”
A soft smile formed on my lips as I remembered the way his soft lips felt against mine.  “Perfectly.”
“I couldn’t get it out of my head.  Words were slamming against each other in my mind.  That night I put my heart onto paper. It was the first time I felt like I was doing something.  I knew at that moment, music was my calling. I mean, yeah, I thought about it before, but I always felt like I was trying too hard.  You came along, and I didn’t have to try anymore.”
Flying.  It’s the only word I could use to describe what I felt at that moment. His words made me feel weightless.  I was soaring above the clouds with the stars. It’s still one of my favorite memories. I felt beautiful, loved, and wanted.  It was perfect.
August pressed a soft kiss to my forehead as I closed my eyes, reveling in his touch.  “This is the very first note I wrote after we kissed. It was the note.  It’s everything.”
 
He was leaning against the building with one leg bent behind him, and he was swinging his keys around on his index finger.  I stepped out onto the sidewalk and my stomach flipped a little as I watched him rake his bottom lip through his teeth. Every time I saw him he got more attractive.  He was forbidden. He was everything that was wrong. If he was the poison apple, I was Snow White, and I was going to sink my teeth into him.
“Damn.  You look amazing.”
I smiled, as I tucked a stray curl behind my ear.  



“There she is.”
“There who is?”
“The girl I knew in high school.  Remember her? She was the one I fell in love with.”  Being a songwriter gave him an advantage over me. I could never match my words for his.  It was a battle I would never win.
“You should know she’s gone, August.  She left a long time ago.” I shifted on my feet.
“No, she’s just hiding.”
I took a step back.  “I don’t remember you being this witty and sure of yourself.”  Deflection.  It was the only move I knew how to do well.
He saw my move and countered me.  “What do you remember?”
Memories flooded my mind as I closed my eyes.  “I remember the garage. You would play your guitar and try to get the others to learn the notes you had in your head.  I remember leaning back on my dad’s bikes and pretending not to watch, when I was.”
“What else?”
“I remember the first time you grabbed my hand.  I was so nervous, but you didn’t notice. Do you remember when we would sneak around school, trying to see each other without being caught?”
“Yeah.  I remember your lips always tasting like the bubblegum you were chewing.  The first time I saw you, my heart skipped a beat and I couldn’t catch my breath.  I watched you walk away that day and every time we’ve been together since. I don’t look away until you’re gone.”
His heart may have skipped beats, but mine was jumping valleys.  “Why?”
August shrugged his shoulders as if it all made sense.  “What if you changed your mind and you wanted to come back to me?  I didn’t want to be the one to walk away. I didn’t want to miss a moment with you.”
“Is that a song?”
“No.”
“It should be.”

which has taken so much from him. 

He’s learned the hard way that if you want something to be done, you have to do
it yourself. 

 

No more waiting for others to make a difference. 

 

With football, a pre-med program and a coveted internship, he has no time for
anything or anyone else. The truth is, he doesn’t think his barely healed heart
can take it. 
 
Despite his determination to remain distant, he soon finds a girl who will not
only fracture that resolve but shatter it completely.

The odds are stacked against her. 
 
Will she have the strength to prevail?

Excerpt
Prologue
Jesse Falcon

 

Every time I near her door, I struggle to go inside. I hate being in the hospital. The smell is a mixture of things, all inescapable. The most prevalent is the jumble of two emotions—happiness and sorrow. Some people laugh. Some people cry; it all depends on the day.
I force myself to stand outside her door for a few more minutes. Who would’ve thought that I’d be here? Who would’ve thought I’d be spending my afternoons in a hospital entertaining her while she fights for her life? Not me. And I’m sure as hell she didn’t expect to be here either.
No one should expect to be here because no one ever should.
Although my feet want to remain frozen, I take a deep breath and force myself to knock. I wait a few minutes, but no one answers. I press my ear to the door, hearing no noises coming from the other side. Maybe she’s sleeping. I should come back another time, I tell myself, but I know I’m just trying to find a reason not to go into that room. Instead, I do what anyone in my position would do; I fight my cowardice, my desire to run away.
I open the door and let myself in. I’m immediately greeted by an empty space. Even for a hospital, it looks too clinical. The bed is made, the machines have been put away, and the flowers that were here yesterday are gone. There’s no sign that someone was here. No sign that she had been here before.
Immediately, I get the feeling that something is wrong.
Zoe Evans
Cancer.
That is the word ringing in my ears.
I have cancer.
Cancer.
Me.
I have it.
The word continues to loop like a bad soundtrack in my mind. It’s on repeat, but I struggle to comprehend it. I hear my mother’s cry and turn in her direction just in time to see my father bringing his arms around her to keep her suddenly limp body from hitting the ground. Her reaction is what tells me I’ve heard the doctor right.
I think back at how I ended up here. One second, I was on the phone with my mother, telling her about this fever that wouldn’t go away. Even with the fever, I remember telling her how excited I was to finally get a break from school and spend my time with her and Dad. She kept insisting I get myself to the hospital, but I refused. I thought it was nothing…but it persisted. The fever didn’t go away, so I finally decided to listen to my mother.
A fever. That’s all I thought I had, but I was wrong.
I have Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Leukemia.
Cancer.
Me.
I have it.
The rest of the doctor’s words are lost on me as I feel as if I’m not really in my body anymore, I’m not in this room anymore. Suddenly, I’m lightheaded and my vision blurs.
“Are you okay, Zoe?” I think I hear someone say, but before I can answer, everything goes dark.

She came into my life without warning. It wasn’t love at
first sight, but the more time I spent with her, I knew she was the one. Our
relationship was complicated, and I knew I had my work cut out for me. I have
to prove to her that she’s all I see. That no matter how the past reads, we can
re-write the future.
He’s the sexiest one of the group, in my personal opinion. We’re friends, and
colleagues, well technically he’s my boss. He’s also the man that consumes my
thoughts, and my desires. I have too much at stake to allow myself to jump into
bed with him, but I really really want to.

One taste and I know I’ll never be the same. Cassidy can prolong this all she
wants, but I know how it ends. When she’s mine.

He’s relentless, and I let him drag me under his spell. It
can’t happen again, but Gavin, he’s Insistent that this is just the beginning.
