Dallas:

He’s the one that got away. But, Banks Weston is more than just the man who got away. I let him go. He’d been ready to share with the world his true self, living life openly. He’s loud and proud. It’s all the many things I’m not. It took me a while, but I did it—everyone knows I’m gay. I want him back. My betrayal broke his heart. No—I obliterated it. But somehow, our paths cross again, and we have a reason to come together and pretend we’re something we’re not. Though in my heart, I’ll always hope for the second chance I don’t deserve.
Banks:
I both hate him and love him all at the same time. His arrogant smirk, the way he rakes his hands through his hair when he’s nervous, and how he lightens any situation with his humor—are just a few things I miss about Dallas Phillips. I won’t let him suck me in again by his charming nature. My guard is up. I’m standing firm. That is until we find a reason to be together. We’ll have to fake it, showing the whole world that we’re a couple. Then again, it won’t be hard because my heart has never stopped loving him.

Walker 
There’s nothing better than a packed house on a Saturday night, and co-owning the hottest restaurant and bar in town with my best friends, isn’t so bad either. We put everything into Burgers and Brew. My job is to keep the alcohol moving and the patrons coming back for more. I won’t let anyone break my focus.
That was until I saw her.
As much as I try, I can’t fight it. Mallory makes me crave a future I never wanted for my own.
Now, I want it all.
Mallory 
When I started my new job at a local specialty burger restaurant, I wasn’t expecting to find a tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome distraction in the form of Walker Meyer. He’s one of the owners, which means hands off. Only problem, it’s a lot easier said than done.
Especially when he’s so good with my daughter.
I try to keep him at a distance, but he’s insistent, slowly breaking down every one of my walls. He’s fighting to convince me I can trust him with not only my heart, but my daughter’s too.
I pray he’s right.

Chapter One
Walker
At exactly eleven o’clock, I slip a quarter into the old jukebox on the back wall. The bar is silent as they await tonight’s selection. My bar, my choice, and tonight, I’m feeling a little rowdy. The opening melody of “Dr. Feelgood” blasts through the speakers, resulting in a loud cheer from tonight’s patrons. As I make my way back behind the bar, I get a few high fives from the guys and even more phone numbers slipped into my palm from the ladies. I wish I could confirm they’re all single, but the truth is they’re not.
Just a typical Saturday night at Burgers and Brew, the place I co-own with my three best friends. We all have our forte within the business, and mine’s behind the bar. Mixing drinks and slinging beers. That’s my life, and damn, what a life it is.
I slap Jasper on the back as I slide under the bar and jump right back in to filling drink orders. Everyone’s singing along, word for word to the ol’ 80’s hair band tune, as part of our weekend ritual. It’s an ode, a salute to our college days and the band we all grew up listening to. We built this business, taking an old brick building in downtown Stewart Grove and turning it into a staple.
Jasper’s the man in the kitchen, the one who comes up with the mouthwatering burger creations we’re known for. Isaac is the numbers guy, the man who keeps us in the black and our taxes completed on time. Jameson’s the muscle because he’s big and tattooed. But he’s more than that. Jameson is talented as fuck with a guitar and serves as our house musician Friday and Saturday nights. Then there’s me. Walker Meyer, bartender extraordinaire, who keeps the beer flowing, the panties melting, and the tips rolling in.
We’re the Brew Crüe, and damn proud of it.
“Dance, dance, dance, dance,” the crowd starts to chant, encouraging me to do what I do every weekend when we play Mötley Crüe.
Dance.
When I glance over at Jasper, he’s already shaking his head, but there’s no missing his wide grin. He knows what’s coming. Placing my hands on the bar top, I jump, hoisting myself up on the aged oak. Patrons erupt into cheers as I grin down at them. Mostly, at the ladies. The single ones and even the not-so-single ones. No, I’m not taking any of them home, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give them one hell of a show.
I twist my ballcap around so it’s on backward and start to swing my hips. Mama blessed me with moves, which helps almost double my tips every night. Women go crazy for a man who can dance. That’s evident by the number of panties that’ll be thrown behind the bar in a matter of moments.
Swaying my hips, I do a little dip and grind, popping my ass out and sending the ladies in the front row into cardiac arrest. They scream and reach for my pant legs, digging their nails into the denim. Instead of shaking them off, I wink and carefully walk a few steps away. Then, when we get to the refrain in the song, I throw my arms out to the side and belt out the words, everyone singing along with me.
It’s like karaoke.
But better.
As the song winds down, I steal the drink in Jasper’s hand and hold it up over my head. Everyone in the bar does the same. We sing. I dance and drink. The panties start flying.

“I…I didn’t want his hands.” She pauses, biting down hard on her lower lip. “I wanted yours.”
“Do you think you deserve them after that?” I press my forehead against hers, her lips close enough for me to bite.
She pauses for a split second then nods.
“I told you I’d bring you here tonight to show you what happens when you disobey me. Now you’ve let someone else touch you, which is even worse.” My pulse throbs against my throat, adrenaline flooding my insides. So much control, lost in a goddamn hot second. These are my fucking rules, nobody else’s! My skin crawls with the knowledge that the curves of her body were just worshipped by another pair of hands. An overwhelming urge to go back into that room and strangle that guy takes hold, and the only thing that keeps me rooted to this spot is Heaven and her wide-eyed stare. “Nobody touches what’s mine. Do you understand that? I don’t fucking share…ever.”
Her hands travel down the sides of my torso as she nods. “Okay.”
“No wife of mine will ever disobey me,” I hiss. “Or there will be consequences.”
“Are you going to punish me now?” she says in a sultry tone. “Because if you don’t, I have to warn you…I might keep being bad…”

📚Emily’s Top 10 Books Read In 2020📚

2020 may have been a sucky year but it was actually my best reading year. I read 250 books in 2020 but these 10 stood above the rest. This was also the year I discovered my love of middle grade as I’m sure you will notice in this post. I hope 2021 will bring even more wonderful books into my life and I can’t wait to see what it holds. Let me know if you have read any of these books!

10. Keeper of the Lost Cities: Legacy

(Keeper of the Lost Cities #8)

By Shannon Messenger

Middle Grade

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5

Synopsis For KOTLC Book 1: Twelve-year-old Sophie Foster has a secret. She’s a Telepath—someone who hears the thoughts of everyone around her. It’s a talent she’s never known how to explain.

Everything changes the day she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy who appears out of nowhere and also reads minds. She discovers there’s a place she does belong, and that staying with her family will place her in grave danger. In the blink of an eye, Sophie is forced to leave behind everything and start a new life in a place that is vastly different from anything she has ever known.

Sophie has new rules to learn and new skills to master, and not everyone is thrilled that she has come “home.” 
There are secrets buried deep in Sophie’s memory—secrets about who she really is and why she was hidden among humans—that other people desperately want. Would even kill for.

In this page-turning debut, Shannon Messenger creates a riveting story where one girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world, before the wrong person finds the answer first.

9. Unbirthday

(Twisted Tales #10)

By Liz Braswell

Young Adult

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis: What if Wonderland was in peril and Alice was very, very late?
Alice is different than other eighteen-year-old ladies in Kexford, which is perfectly fine with her. She’d rather spend golden afternoons with her trusty camera or in her aunt Vivian’s lively salon, ignoring her sister’s wishes that she stop all that “nonsense” and become a “respectable” member of society. Alice is happy to meander to Miss. Yao’s teashop or to visit the children playing in the Square. She’s also interested in learning more about the young lawyer she met there, but just because she’s curious, of course, not because he was sweet and charming.

But when Alice develops photographs she has recently taken about town, familiar faces of old suddenly appear in the place of her actual subjects-the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar. There’s something eerily off about them, even for Wonderland creatures. And as Alice develops a self-portrait, she finds the most disturbing image of all-a badly-injured dark-haired girl asking for Alice’s help. Mary Ann.

Returning to the place of nonsense from her childhood, Alice finds herself on a mission to stop the Queen of Hearts’ tyrannical rule and to find her place in both worlds. But will she able to do so . . . before the End of Time?

8. The Tyrant’s Tomb

(The Trials of Apollo #4)

By Rick Riordan

Middle Grade

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis For The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1):

How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour.

But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go… an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

7. The Ship of the Dead

(Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #3)

By Rick Riordan

Middle Grade

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis For The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase #1):

Magnus Chase has seen his share of trouble. Ever since that terrible night two years ago when his mother told him to run, he has lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, staying one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, Magnus learns that someone else is trying to track him down—his uncle Randolph, a man his mother had always warned him about. When Magnus tries to outmaneuver his uncle, he falls right into his clutches. Randolph starts rambling about Norse history and Magnus’s birthright: a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

The more Randolph talks, the more puzzle pieces fall into place. Stories about the gods of Asgard, wolves, and Doomsday bubble up from Magnus’s memory. But he doesn’t have time to consider it all before a fire giant attacks the city, forcing him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents. . . .

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die.

(Keeper of the Lost Cities #6)

By Shannon Messenger

Middle Grade

My rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

5. Night of the Dragon

(Shadow of the Fox #3)

By Julie Kagawa

Young Adult

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis For Shadow of the Fox (#1): 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.

3. Keeper of the Lost Cities: Lodestar

(Keeper of the Lost Cities #5)

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

2. Pride and Prejudice

By Jane Austen

Classic Literature

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis: Since its immediate success in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in the English language. Jane Austen called this brilliant work “her own darling child” and its vivacious heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, “as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print.” The romantic clash between the opinionated Elizabeth and her proud beau, Mr. Darcy, is a splendid performance of civilized sparring. And Jane Austen’s radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.

By Kerri Maniscalco

Young Adult

My Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis: Two sisters.

One brutal murder.

A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself…

And an intoxicating romance.

Emilia and her twin sister Vittoria are streghe – witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Vittoria misses dinner service at the family’s renowned Sicilian restaurant. Emilia soon finds the body of her beloved twin…desecrated beyond belief. Devastated, Emilia sets out to find her sister’s killer and to seek vengeance at any cost-even if it means using dark magic that’s been long forbidden.

Then Emilia meets Wrath, one of the Wicked-princes of Hell she has been warned against in tales since she was a child. Wrath claims to be on Emilia’s side, tasked by his master with solving the series of women’s murders on the island. But when it comes to the Wicked, nothing is as it seems…

Excerpt
I navigate the bumpy gravel drive in my heels and rolling luggage until a
wheel locks up. I rock the bag side to side, searching for the issue. “Where
are you?”
“Let me help you with that.” I look toward the deep voice and I’m met
with a smile. My heart skips a little and I’m stunned.
“Uh… I think it’s a rock.” I say without drooling.
He picks up the sixty-pound bag without issue, moving it to the sidewalk.
I open my mouth to thank him when I see all eyes on us. I nervously chuckle.
“I’ll take it from here. I don’t want you to lose your place in line.”
“I’m already seated. I saw you struggling and thought I’d lend a hand.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes, ma’am.”
“Ma’am?” I laugh and he stammers a little. “I’m much to young to be
addressed as ma’am, don’t you think?”
“It’s how my mother raised me.” He flashes a trillion-dollar smile that’s
derives straight from the steamy depths of hell because it’s downright sinful.
The man is a work of art.
Powerful jaw. Broad shoulders. Beneath that shirt is a chiseled body, I’m
sure. I swallow around the stone in my throat as he hunkers closer and examines
the wheels on my bag.
“Here’s the issue.”
I blink, and his face is close. Super close. I’m finding it hard to
breathe and when I do, I inhale a long drag of temptation.
Can a man smell yummy? Yes.
Better than the scent of homemade southern food lingering in the air?
Absolutely.
God, yes.
“Everything all right?” A crease of concern bunches between his dark
brown eyes.
“Uh…”
My lungs empty as I take a quick inventory of the man in front of me. A
man rendering me speechless in the right way. This moment is going down in the
books. But in my defense, I’m delusional and sleep deprived. That’s what it is.
I lay a hand over my galloping heart, fighting to string together a response.
I inhale and… oh hell, that damn delicious scent tickles my nose, and the
sensation travels through my body, awakening a whisper of attraction. I groan.
Stop breathing, Jayda. Just stop breathing. I chastise myself the moment
I lock eyes with him.
“Yeah, I…” I shake to quiet the voices in my head. “Long morning of
travel.”
I can’t look away, and neither does he. I came to Southern Soul to meet
my best friend, Catrina. I figured staying with her for the week would makeup
for Brett ditching me.
Damn, Texas has some fine ass men. The masterpiece before me has a beard
and full eyebrows. He’s groomed, but all man. His golden peanut butter
complexion reminds me of my Reesie Piecie. And with that thought comes the
thorn in my side, Brett.
“Huh, thanks. I got it. I appreciate your help.” I stand and he moves
with me until he’s towering over me.
And he’s tall. I almost groan again, but I hold it in. It’s time for me
to find Catrina. Unlike my boyfriend, I’m a lot of things, but I’m not a
cheater. The moment I want someone more than what I have, I’m out. At least,
that was before I had Reese. Now, I stay because… staying’s the right thing to
do.
“My pleasure. Name’s Kamal Montgomery. And you are?” He extends a hand.
“Jayda Dallas.” I take his hand and immediately regret it. A trail of
heat flows from him to me in a timeless extension of energy, paralyzing me.
“Huh, someone’s waiting for me. Thanks again.”
I retract my hand, but not before he flips it over. The perfect thick
brow of his arches in an unspoken question. I slip my hand from the warmth of
his. But the heat of his touch lingers.
I rub my hand along my skirt, trying to erase the memory as I reclaim the
handle of my bag and start rolling towards the front of the line.
“Hey, Jayda!” Catrina sings, wrapping me in a sisterfriend hug as we
squeal like kids. When we finally step back, she takes possession of my bag.
Then she stares at the man now standing beside us. “Kamal.”
Kamal nods, “Enjoy your meal, Jayda.” Then he disappears.

Can you ever truly escape your past?
 
B.C. Morin returns to her world of vampires, werewolves, nephilim, and the carefully created hybrids who are now fighting to keep the crumbling peace between the species.
 
“The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased. It can only be accepted.” ~Unknown
 
Especially if the past made you the rare immortal hybrid you are today.
Emeline Huntley is a survivor. A reluctant immortal who has lived through losing her family, being experimented on, wearing a clockwork collar that could behead her at any moment, and being under the control of one of the most ruthless men she has ever had the displeasure to know. Now, she and her lethal and intoxicating husband Alexander, also a hybrid have become peace-keepers. If you consider vigilante mercenaries for hire, peace-keepers, that is.
Emeline and Alexander have been thrust into the center of a surge of murders that threatens the already fragile state of affairs between vampires and werewolves. When a hooded figure targets them at home in the States and they run out of answers here, Emeline and Alexander have to go home to England. Fighting ghosts of the past as much as the enemies of the present, they find that this is far more than a species war. Someone is playing a deadly game and Emeline and Alexander are in their way.
Enemies are gaining ground as danger closes in on the couple and the past they have tried so hard to avoid rushes back. Calling on the very vampire and werewolf they were created from, Alexander and Emeline try to get to the bottom of it all and stop the mysterious figure before more lives are taken. But as the dead ends keep piling up, time is running out…
