Title: The Five
Author: Lily White
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: March 20, 2019


Every man who meets Rainey wants her. Having lived a life of sex, drugs and manipulation, she is a temptation with far too many secrets.

When psychologist, Justin Redding, is assigned to Rainey’s case, he has no way of knowing the tale of debauchery he will encounter.

On a twisted path of love, loss and murder, Rainey leads Justin through the events of her life.

Death follows Rainey…

Justin fights to discover her secrets…

But will he discover the secret of THE FIVE in time to resist Rainey’s ultimate seduction? 


“This book deals with sensitive subject matter that may be upsetting to some readers.”
“No, Rainey. Let me look at you. I love looking at you. Even when I close my eyes, all I see is you.”

I dropped my arms, my legs trembling. This was Rowan, the sweet, kindhearted boy I loved. Yet, in that moment I feared him. The adrenaline was wearing off and I was suddenly so cold.

His lips parted as he stared at me, those blue eyes I knew so well slowly taking in my body as heat blazed behind them. He’d grown so large, twice my size at least, and it had never occurred to me how strong he was until now. Nobody would pick on him anymore. Not without getting their asses handed to them in a fight.

“Can I touch you, Rainey?” His eyes lifted to mine. “Is that all right? For me to touch you?”

“Always,” I whispered, unable to put any strength in my voice. “You can always touch me.”

He stepped forward and I stepped back out of instinct. He would never hurt me. Not Rowan. But what I saw in him now was the predator that had always lingered just beneath the surface. He wasn’t a monster like his family or David. Not him. He was something else entirely.

Pain shot through his eyes when I moved, his hands fisting at his sides. “Do I scare you now?”

Shaking my head, I forced my mouth to move. “No. It’s just -“

“Just what?”

“You’re different, Rowan. A man, I guess. You’ve grown.”

Blue eyes held mine, the darkness in them seeping away, but not entirely. His lips pulled into a tight smile. “You need a man. I’ve become exactly what you need. For you, Rainey. Not anybody else. Just for you.”

I drew in a rattling breath. “Touch me.”

Rowan moved forward and I held my ground, craning my neck to look up at him. He was shaking, his skin so cold that I knew I had to fix him somehow. “Rowan?”

“Yeah?”

“Will you kiss me?”

The Bachelor Auction

  

The Bachelor Auction 
 J.C. Reed
July 1st 2018

 

All is fair in love and business…

My friend’s plan is pretty simple: win the bachelor auction in a charity event and get the most influential man to sign a business deal with us. It’s a do or die situation. But plans rarely go as you would expect.

When the bids begin to take ginormous proportions, my friend can’t stop in her rush of excitement. We don’t have the money. We can’t afford him, and yet, before I can even comprehend what’s happening, we’re the highest bid.

“The bachelor” aka Tyler Becks isn’t old and ugly. He isn’t very business-like, either. In fact, it’s hard to imagine that someone with his brain and bank account can be this sexy.
He understands our cash-strapped situation and is kind enough to cancel the bid. Let us out of the contract. No hard feelings. Or so he claims.

He’s even kind enough to want to work with us. With me, in particular. I can’t refuse, even though working for him means I have to see him every day. My future depends on it.

I won’t let my guard down. I won’t fall for him, and particularly not now that I know he’s hiding something from me. Everything comes at a price. Even Tyler’s generosity.

Rating : 3 Stars
Blurb :

The fateful day Mimi Marcus has dreaded begins with a phone call… The wife of a U.S. Marine, Mimi spent countless nights worried that her husband Joel would fall in the line of duty. He had fought valiantly and served his country with honor. That’s exactly what they tell her when they deliver the news—Joel was taken by the enemy in Afghanistan. Her husband is dead. In desperate need of closure, Mimi travels to the one place Joel still has ties—The Marcus Ranch in Texas, inherited by his handsome younger brother Austin. New beginnings are only an illusion… The closer Mimi grows to the Marcus family, the more she considers it home. But when suspicions of Joel’s past surface, Austin refuses to disclose family secrets—even to his brother’s widow. It’s only by accident she uncovers evidence of Joel’s tainted past. Devastated by his lies and betrayal, she slowly opens up to Austin, and together they unfold layers of pain and grief. Mimi is sure she’ll never love again, but is Austin the man to prove her wrong? Then the unthinkable happens… Just as Mimi finds new hope in a future with Austin, Joel returns home from war. Enraged, traumatized, and teetering on the edge of insanity, Joel confesses to a history of deception, revealing yet another secret—this one too terrible to forgive. In an awful twist of fate, Joel proves marriage vows are made to be honored. No matter what.

Review :

Till Death Us Do Part by Cristina Slough was not an easy read for me. In fact it was a very hard one.

And I had to try twice to get myself to continue reading.
It might have been a mistake to read the Blurb – but on the other Hand I might not have chosen to read it at all without reading the Blurb.
And those divided feelings continue for me throughout the whole book. It is a well written novel with fully developed characters.
The problems I encountered are my personal ones only and result ín my very personal point of view on a soldier novel.
The storyline of this book definitively deserves reading attention and I am sure it will find many lovers.
As usual I will not comment on the story itself in this special case also to refrain myself from rubbing off my personal point of view on to fellow readers.
Instead I would like to invite you to read this story because I am curious what you think …

“Come, lass. Get on a plane with me.”
 
After a business deal goes awry, Laird Callum McRae is in over his head, struggling to keep his castle afloat. He knows exactly what he has to do to save his family of brothers. Collecting a debt from the corrupt man who swindled him is his only mission. But when he meets a compassionate and determined woman, his plans change.
 
Now, he needs to get the girl while confronting her father…
 
Mathilda Storm will do anything for her sister—even if it means entering into a contract for a loveless marriage. After all, it will solve her family’s problems. But she doesn’t count on meeting a broad-shouldered, rugged Scottish laird. And resisting him is harder than she imagined. As the chemistry between Callum and Mathilda ignites, Mathilda is torn between her desire and her need to help her family. Can the practical daughter marry the Scot without losing her heart along the way?

 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Fae – “I LOVED THIS BOOK!
Callum is freaking adorable. I want all the sequels yesterday.
It was such a good read. I burned straight through it.
I cannot wait for more!”

Brittany – “This book was so adorable and amazing and I don’t have enough good things to say about it! I loved Callum. I loved his family. And I CANNOT wait for the rest of this series.
Please please please tell me we get books for the Twins at some point?!?!”

Paula – “I loved this book! It had all that I would expect with hot Scots and rambling castles. The chemistry was hot between Mathilda and Callum.
I had to giggle when I discovered that I was reading this book with my own manufactured Scottish brogue! The detail to the culture was so explicit that I was thinking in Scottish too.
Can’t wait for more.”

ChikaP – “Callum McRae is tall, sweet, sexy, and loyal. What more can you ask for in a hero? Add to that his Scottish accent and there are no words to describe that kind of perfection. His heroine is Mathilda who is confident, independent, sassy, and knows what she wants out of life. Reading their story was an absolute pleasure and one that you don’t want to miss out on! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a super steamy and sweet romance (essentially the perfect kind of romance)!”

Excerpt
 
Adele was
babbling, she knew, but she couldn’t stop herself. So she was thankful when
Jones cut her off and yanked her close. He sat up at the same time, and before
she even realized what was happening, he was kissing her.
Finally.
The last
time – the only time – they’d kissed, he’d disappeared forever. This
time, she was determined to make the most of it. They both shifted onto their
knees, arms going around each other, and when she gasped at the intensity of
his hold, his tongue slipped into her mouth. She moaned and curled her fingers
in his hair, praying the moment would last forever.
Ah, but
this place is the anti-prayer. So shall you think it, so shall it not
be.
Jones’
hands had moved to cup either side of her face. He pulled away, then leaned
back in for another slow kiss. Tried to say something, then kissed her again.
Once more, and she could just feel it – it was the last one.
“I wish we
could stay here forever,” he whispered, pressing his forehead to hers.
“Me, too,”
she whispered back. He grabbed hold of her wrists and gently removed her arms
from around his neck.
“But it
can’t be. You either go forward, or you go back. You can only stand still for
so long, Adele.”
She didn’t
even know what he was talking about, and she knew he was right. The storm above
them was getting worse. Something was coming. Eternity waited for no one, not
even her, it seemed.
She
squeezed her eyes shut tight.
“I tried,
Jones. I tried to stand still with you. I tried to get caught in the now with
you.”
“I know you
did. And now I want you to try something else,” his voice was so low, she could
barely hear it over all the thunder.
“What?”
“I want you
to concentrate. And then, I want you to open your eyes.”
She bit
into her bottom lip and turned her head, brushing her nose against the side of
his cheek so she could remember the feel of him. Inhaled deeply so she could
remember the smell of him. Then she took an even deeper breath and did as she
was told.
She
concentrated on the ground below her. Listened to the storm raging above her.
Felt Jones’ body heat in front of her.
And she
also remembered. Could hear her brother Ocean laugh in her ear, the sound made
such rare appearances. Could picture her brother River standing in front of
her, looking so serious and concerned. Could feel her brother August around
her, giving her one of his big hugs.
The wind
around them didn’t lessen in intensity, but it did slow down. Or time slowed,
she couldn’t be sure. There was a terrific booming noise, followed by the sound
of something ripping. At first, she thought it was the sky – the storm must
have really been opening up. Then she felt a tremor in the ground under her,
and she knew what it was.
The giant
tree was finally tipping over. It groaned as gravity took hold of its weight
and pulled it over the edge of the cliff. She could actually sense the roots
being ripped from the earth as the tree made a swan dive.
And as the
roots came free, they tore apart the face of the cliff. She could feel the
ground crumbling away from her, could tell she was falling. Jones held onto her
for as long as he could, but just as his arms were about to reach their limit,
gravity took over once again and yanked her away completely.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Author Bio
 
 
Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
 
I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.
 
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Reading a book written by Stylo Fantome equals a journey into the unknown. She never ceases to amaze me. I should have known by now that reading the blurb of “while I was away” would do nothing in the way of preparing me for what was to follow actually reading the book.

Already wayyyyyyy before this book came I gave exactly this kind of plot a lot of thoughts due to some private reasons. So it was a no brainer that I had to see how Ms. Fantome worked on the obstacles and logistics. And she did good – with all the twists and turns – ups and downs she squeezed into the plot – gosh – there were times I really lost my way in this plot and I was wondering what might be happening next – and that is a something that does not happen to frequently.

Still I can not help myself but for the second time within one week I have the line “Alice in Wonderland” on the tip of my tongue – . And if this would be a movie there would be a Johnny Depp in the cast because this whole plot is an explosion of color. It is bizarre to say the least – and still it manages to be romantic. It is a rollercoaster of emotions and at the same time you think there have to be drugs involved in this story.

I think this book is one of a kind and I would recommend it with a line like … If you ever felt you wanted to read a love story for adults that felt like Alice in Wonderland – look no further.

My “negative” point … (if you can call it that) I felt there were to many plot strings. Meaning – while I loved all the secondary characters all of their plot strings were to prominent. Sometimes I was about to loose my way wondering which character should have the main attention…

Which makes me wonder in hindsight – maybe that was intentional by the author – I would not put it past her … I just wonder why ? hmmmm

Anyway – 4 stars for this really surprising book Beautifully written and I will never hesitate to pick up a book by this author if the blurb appeals to me as she never ceases to amaze me.

While it really surprised me in a positive way – I felt I could not keep my focus on the leading characters and therefore I was not 100% into the emotional rollercoaster as I should have been.

Agon (Mystic Protectors, #2)

  

Riss
Mystic Protectors #1
Kathi S. Barton
February 10th 2014

 

His love for her was forbidden…

Riss has been around since the beginning of time and watching his charges be born, grow up, and die has taken a toll on him. Until lately, being a Protector has always been enough… The Archangel Michael, Riss’s mentor and superior, decides with the help of their “Boss” to change things up a bit―like the rest, he doesn’t want to lose one of his best Protectors. Riss is assigned to guide and protect Kala. Riss is not happy about the changes and hopes this is his last assignment as a Protector before he can quit and live his last year on Earth and die.

She has nothing left to lose―except her life…

Kala has lost everything: her family as a child, her job, and now her apartment. She is also having weird dreams that she can’t quite remember…dreams revolving around a single white feather. Kala’s sexual fascination with the feather brings forth the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen―Riss. He came for his feather―he can feel everything she does with it throughout his body.

Sex with a human is forbidden and Riss has never even considered it―until now.

A madman, suffering from a delusional fantasy, has set his sights on Kala. He has already killed and will kill again. She will be his or suffer the consequences…

And Riss has been forbidden to interfere…

REVIEW : The Truth About Him (Everything I Left Unsaid #2) by Molly O’Keefe

Title :

The Truth About Him

Author :

Molly O’Keefe

Series :

Everything I Left Unsaid #2

Release date : November 24th 2015
Rating : 3 Stars
Blurb :

We played our roles, told each other lies.But now Dylan is no longer just a mysterious deep voice on the other end of the line. We’re face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real. We still have secrets—but so much is crystal clear: The thrilling danger.The raw, naked desire.The need to keep feeling the way he makes me feel. Forever.Dylan is putting up walls, trying to keep me safe, but he can’t shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now it’s my turn, if only he will let me.

Review :

The second book of the “Everything I Left Unsaid ” series starts where the first one finishes. We directly are confronted with this very tensed situation that makes you wondering: what is going to happen the next round about 350 pages…. Some things happened, but in my case not enough. While I really enjoyed getting to know more about the very special characters, it was difficult for me to fully enjoy the story as it all gor a bit confusing in my opinion. It felt like the author was not able to completely focus on the story in general which is why it was difficult to follow the story.

Because of the missing focus, it was also difficult to actually “feel” the relationship of the two main characters. Something we don´t have to talk about is the writing-style. Again as flawless as it could be!
