Book Synopsis
The Darkest Days are finally upon us and the Daughters of Eve shall rise again. 
Jess sacrificed herself for the people she loved but she now has to pay the consequences for her actions because something dark is coming and it is heading straight for her. She really did not think her life could get any more complicated but when another tall dark stranger walks back into her life she realises she has a decision to make. All she wants is for everyone to leave her alone and let her live the life she thought she once had but things are getting out of control fast. The love she has for Reuban can only ground her for so long and her anger is beginning to spiral out of control. If she tells him how she really feels she could lose him forever or get him killed and that is a risk she could never forgive herself for. 
The Council have accepted her for what she is but has she? There is a huge possibility everyone she loves is going to die if she stays, but if she walks away she will have to leave the love of her life behind and that would rip her soul apart.
The only way out is to work with the one person she hates more than anything in this world and that was going to take a lot of self-restraint if she was going to get through this nightmare without killing him.
Reuban can see the torment within Jess and it is breaking his heart. He would do anything to ease her pain even if it meant letting her walk away, destroying him in the process. His only hope is to seek guidance from Brigate and finally understand the true meaning of Megan's Prophecy. It started with a Prophecy and it is there he will find the truth and it is a secret that could tear the Council to pieces.
A fractured alliance will be formed again with a new generation of warriors and Jess is at its centre. The war is about to begin and a destiny will finally be fulfilled!

Exclusive Teaser:

Death & Maria…

I stood staring through the glass partition when I saw that ginger Empath look up and storm in my direction.  I rolled my eyes and sighed.  Why did I always have to receive abuse from women?  Civilisations had bowed down to me in fear and now I couldn’t even scare a stupid Empath!
“What the hell do you think you’re doin?”  She was stood in my way with her hand on her hips and it was taking all of my self-control not to move her out of the way.  Jess was obviously feeling elated because her wings were fully outstretched,
“I’M GOING TO SEE MY DAUGHTER, NOT THAT IT’S ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS!” I frowned,
“And you can cut that out right now!”  And now the silly woman was pouting and tapping her foot.  This will not do at all!
“DO YOU NOT KNOW WHO I AM YOU SILLY CREATURE?” I bellowed.  That should have scared her but I watched in amazement when she looped her arm in mine and turned us around.  I found myself looking over my shoulder at Jess kissing her wolf while I was being manhandled by a woman,
“Yadda, yadda, yadda, I know exactly who you are and if you call me a stupid ginger Empath once more I’m slapping your face.  Oh and you can pack that stupid voice in as well.  It doesn’t work on me when Jess does it and it sure as hell won’t work coming from Death, so you can just stop it!”
“HOW DARE YOU SPEAK…”
“Seriously!  When was the last time you spoke normal?  I’m betting you didn’t speak to Eve like that, in fact I bet you were all hearts and flowers before you knocked her up?” she interrupted.  If she wasn’t careful I would judge her right here.  How dare she speak to me in this manner!
“HOW…”  Heavens above, she was interrupting me again!  She stopped and stood in front of me placing her hand on my arm,
“Look cut the crap!  I can feel how worried you are for Jess so be her father for once and not a ‘know it all’ celestial being.  Her voice scares the shit out of her and I’m guessing you had a hand in saving her again so please try and be normal for her.”
“LOOK…” I coughed.  I couldn’t believe a stupid ginger Empath was making me change my voice but here I was doing just that, “…she is my daughter and I couldn’t let her die so I helped her along a little.  Not that it’s any of your business might I add!” I sighed,
“The name is Maria by the way, NOT the stupid ginger Empath!  Jess is ok but she will need time to come to terms with the fact you’re here.  When Eve died it destroyed her and she’s felt alone ever since.  Deep down she doesn’t even hate you, she regrets not knowing you and so barging in there isn’t going to do you any good.  I have no idea what you’re doing here because Jess isn’t ready and you have incredibly shit timing!” she pouted,
“I am here to protect my daughter from the approaching darkness and if I go back now Evelyn will have my balls!”  I seemed to have an uncontrollable urge to talk to this woman and it was annoying.
“Excuse me, Evelyn?” she questioned looking puzzled.  Of course, she wouldn’t know Evelyn was in the mists with me,
“Yes Evelyn, my wife and Jess’ mother.  She would not be pleased if I simply ran back home without trying to help our daughter!” I scowled,
“Eve is with you?” she said astonished,
“Yes.  Has anyone told you that you’re nosey for a crossbreed?” I said raising an eyebrow,
“But she died?”
“Yes indeed she did!”  Maria was starting to try my patience,
“And you didn’t judge her?”  Her voice was sounding an octave higher probably from the shock,
“It was not my place to!”
“Because she was your wife?”
“ENOUGH WITH THE QUESTIONS!  EVELYN IS NOT YOUR CONCERN AND NEITHER IS JESS.  IF YOU DO NOT STEP OUT OF MY WAY I WILL SMITE YOU!” I bellowed shacking the light fittings.  I stood in absolute horror when the stupid ginger Empath started laughing,
“Oh...sorry…wait…can’t breathe…oh God…smite!” she snorted and I raised an eyebrow.  It was no wonder Bunny and Jess liked this woman because she was insane,
“Will you stop laughing?”  Even I was starting to smile,

“I swear if you call me a stupid ginger Empath once more…I mean it!  You know Eve was my friend and it was my job to protect her.  I’m now friends with Jess and if you think I’m gonna let you stroll in there and upset her after she’s been asleep for six weeks you really have another thing coming!  You may be a scary Archangel but you’re also a father and it’s about time you stepped up to your responsibilities.  I promise you that once she is a little more stable I will take great pleasure in introducing you but for now just let her have a little time with the man she loves, please.”

                       Beyond Repair

                                                      By Chelsea Camaron 



  My review-


I have loved all of the books in this series but this one truly is now my favorite! These are a few reasons why......... Chelsea has a way of making you FEEL the story, it grips you and pulls you in and emotionally you are at the edge of your seat the whole way through. The only choice you have (because you CANNOT stop) is to just ride the waves along the way! I felt very connected with Tiffany in this book. I have felt the same things she feels and literally my heart broke for her. I am not ashamed to admit I cried or teared up ALOT. She doesn't just create fiction she creates life stories. It feels REAL! There is a message in every book she writes and this one just shows you that nobody is BEYOND REPAIR! 




"Who am I? A cold, snobby, and insecure bitch. That's not who I really am,that's who I let everyone see. I'm really loving, loyal, and sensitive. I'm aso weak; very weak. Matt was always there to pick up the pieces, now he's gone. Time to be brave, Tiffany. Time to broaden your horizons and step out of what's expected of you. Time to claim your life." 

So Harrison is amazing! I fell in love almost instantly. I hated Tiffany and then I hated Sophie. At times I loved and felt sorry for both but in the long run I knew in my head who Harry was destined to be with. I loved everything about this book. It's a story of loss and love and it will truly capture your heart to the fullest! WHO DOES HARRY CHOOSE????? WELLLLLL HURRY UP AND READ IT!!! 


"You're my calm in the storm, my tranquility in chaos. You're my rock and my safe place. Today, I promise to love you unconditionally and without hesitation."
    

SYNOPSIS-  

Harrison and Tiffany have a long history of hooking up. Harrison decides he wants more. Tiffany, a spoiled Southern Belle is embarrassed by a working class Harrison. After over two years apart Tiffany is missing his touch. She heads to Charlotte to bring some important news. 

Harrison is finally settled in Charlotte. He has a job he loves, his sister close by, great friends, and an awesome agreement going with Sophia. 

Can Sophia ever want more from Harrison than just sex? Has Harrison fallen in love or just lust with Sophia?

After all this time and hurt feelings, is he really meant to be with Tiffany? Can Harrison manage to let his guard down and find his way back to Tiffany? Will Tiffany be satisfied with a regular working class mechanic? Or is their relationship in the past and beyond repair?

BedRock - by Britney King

When Addison Greyer, a happily married mother of three, decides to re-enter the workforce, she never once considers that taking a job might unravel everything she thinks to be true about her life--that it would cause her to look deep within and confront fears she didn't know existed. She couldn't have foreseen how a chance meeting or a single day can change the course of an entire lifetime. 

Like many women, Addison is defined in terms of marriage and motherhood, until she suddenly finds her life turned upside down by her husband's decision to take a job thousands of miles away. When her tough-as-nails boss offers her an opportunity she can't refuse, Addie is forced to make difficult choices. Those choices take her further and further out of the carefully crafted fairytale life she has created and lead her into an unknown world where things are anything but black and white: a world where she learns that desire is not only dangerous but deadly. In this world, all bets are off as she is forced to finally confront her past. As her past and present collide, she has to make decisions that for most are unthinkable, decisions that can tear her family apart, and perhaps even have fatal consequences.
Bedrock is a love story designed to showcase how the choices we make ultimately shape our lives. It serves as a reminder that in the end what defines us is not the big events, the monumental occasions. It's the tiny, seemingly inconsequential moments in between. It's proof that time passes and we cannot, no matter how hard we try, get it back. Bedrock is a story of love and grief that pretty much sums up the context of the human experience.

Good Vibrations - by S.L. Scott

And things like making her promises too soon that won't do either of us any good. She makes me want a future that's not possible, and one I don't deserve.

Listening to my ego got me into this situation. Will listening to my heart get me out?

Review of My Now & Forever by HJ Bellus

I hate to say that I ever doubt a book. But I also hate going into the book with a mindset that it is going to be EPIC, just to be let down. So, for the most part, especially with authors I don’t know – I tend to try and start the book with little to no expectation. And I absolutely love it when said book just surprises me and turns out to be such a fabulous read!!

My Now & Forever really surprised me.  I mean, what a FUN story!!

Amelia, or Milly, is 5 when her whole world is shattered and her horrible parents just leave her. They just up and leave. Gone. Poof. As a parent, this was really hard for me to read.  And my heart broke for this sweet little girl who was abandoned by the two people who are supposed to love her unconditionally.

But Milly is a fighter. She doesn’t give up.  Even after she is married to “The Bastard”. And oh is he ever a bastard.  Milly’s one saving grace is her mother-in-law (I know this shocked me too, married women!), Frances.  But after getting to know Frances, I can see exactly why she fell so in love with the woman. After a crazy turn of events, Milly ends up divorced (Hallelujah) and on the road to Colorado to start her new life.

Milly quickly develops a one of a kind friendship with a local Colorado girl, Lacey.  I absolutely loved their relationship.  It reminded me so much of my friendships with my girlfriends.  Let me just stop right here and say that this is what I loved most about this story….it was so real. I mean the goofy things the characters say.  The playing Uno and watching movies. Trips to Disneyland.  The random clumsiness. It just so real, so it was easy to relate to.

“Oh sorry, I need serviced,” I blurted. “I mean I need lubed,” was the next fucking brilliant thing that flew out my trap. I started shaking my head from side to side because that even sounded worse. Malcolm let out a slight chuckle and replied, “Are you trying to tell me that you require my services there, sweet pea?” I was totally and completely fucking embarrassed! "...'Oh yes, I am fine. I just decided to wrestle this door on top of a ladder in the middle of the day. I'm pretty sure the door won this round,' I replied coolly, while my insides were screaming and writhing in motherfucking pain."

Colorado is also where Milly catches the eye of our hot cowboy, Mr. Cree Fitzpatrick.  If you look up adorably swoon-worthy in the dictionary, you will find a picture of Cree Fitzpatrick.  The man is a gem! I fell in love with him so easily.  I mean, HELLO, not only is he a hot, manly cowboy….but the man is funny, sarcastic, romantic and he is an amazing father. Yes, you read that correctly, father. The man is just…*sigh*…..

“ ‘Do you want to know what I see when I look at these toes? I see the perfection that god created just for me. I see a creative and talented woman with the biggest heart that has ever walked this Earth. I see the woman that I am madly in love with. I see my Dolly who brightens every single one of my mornings with coffee,” he said in between kissing my toes 
Cree’s daughter, Annie was a highlight in the story for me.  She was absolutely precious!

Milly quickly finds her “family” in Lacey, Cree, Williow, Greyson and Annie. And it’s just beautiful. But Cree and Milly both have difficult pasts. And the hard thing about running away from your past is that it always catches up with you.  And when the past comes calling for Cree and Milly, things get rough.

This story was funny, quirky and full of life. There were times where some of the dialogue felt a little forced, or maybe out of place in certain scenes, but overall – this was a fantastic book and such an enjoyable read.

REVIEW/ SPOTLIGHT AND GIVEAWAY FOR LAURA DUNAWAY

                                  MY REVIEW OF DISTORTED



WOW just WOW is all i can say about this book! Seriously this book took me on a ride of a lifetime.
I can say that I have read many love triangles before but I have never NOT been able to pick a favorite guy until DISTORTED! I loved them both so much and I was so so torn through this book! 



"I had two men that declared themselves to me and I loved them both in very different ways"


Aly has worked with Paul for years and she has also been in love with him for an equal amount of time. I never really blamed Paul because lets face it, most men are totally oblivious to those little details so yeah I never held that against him. Actually, I loved Paul from the second I was introduced to him and was just set that Aly needed to pick him cause he OOZED sex and was just incredible. Soon Paul starts to change and realize maybe he wants Aly too but one problem is the girlfriend Casey, YES I said it GIRLFRIEND! One day Aly gets her wish and in the heat of the moment things get crazy! She is on cloud 9 THEN that is when the ball drops and she gets her heart shattered!

"I told her I've always been in love with you and that I'd finally told you. I told her that I was going to fight for you, that I only wanted you."


Aly and Ethan have been best friends since college. She senses that he wants more but doesn't want to loose her best friend so she just plays it off like funny HA HA. He is a WONDERFUL man. After I met Ethan I soon learned that maybe I don't want Paul to win her heart just maybe I want Ethan. He is the sweetest man ever!  Soon things change and she looks at her best friend and sees that she is in fact in love with him too! SHE IS LOST!



"We were friends first and we will be friends last, no matter what"


This book totally had my heart split in two pieces. I didn't want a man to get hurt but by the end I did have a favorite and I still hurt for the other man reguardless. I felt every feeling that Aly felt just almost like I was the one that had to make the decision. I LOVE how she pulled this book off. I love how it all played out and I loved all the characters. Laura Dunaway totally rocked this DISTORTED love triangle and keeps you needing more! 


"What started out as something completely distorted ended up being something completely perfect"


"The only thing that mattered, that would ever matter, was him. I had finally found my happily ever after"

                                              EXCERPT FOR DISTORTED


“Then there’s the girl I work with. She’s really hot, sexy actually. Her shoulder length blonde hair drives me crazy; like the way she twirls her fingers through it when she’s nervous. Though, when it’s up in a twist, like today, she fidgets with her fingers. Her dark brown eyes make me want to fall to my knees every time she looks at me.” He paused and stared at me for what seemed like a very long time, “you may know her. Her name is Aly,” he said barely above a whisper as he caressed my cheek with the back of his fingers.

My heart slammed against my chest once again. Jerking my head up to fully look at him, I stared into his eyes. There was no humor or teasing in them. They were filled with sincerity and if I wasn’t mistaken, filled with desire. I struggled to find words. “Um, what?” I asked staggered. I was in shock. He had never spoken to me like this before, never this direct.  His lips curled into a ghost of a smile. “Yep and the outfit she’s wearing today is going to torture me all day long; showing off all of her curves in every possible way. So yeah, that’s who I think is hot,” he said as he dropped his hand from my face and turned to walk into his office. I sat there staring blankly at the doorway, wondering what the hell just happened.


And the lovely author herself!
