|The Bachelor Auction|
|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’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.
Till Death Us Do Part

Till Death Us Do Part by Cristina Slough was not an easy read for me. In fact it was a very hard one.
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)!”
Can span any distance, stretch across time, last beyond death.
The pressure against your skull damaged your brain.
Which leads one to wonder …
The damage left you unresponsive to most kinds of stimuli.
If you fall in love in your dreams,
And this unresponsive state is what’s known as a coma.
Can you find that love when you wake 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.

|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.

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…

The Truth About Him
Everything I Left Unsaid #2
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. Weâre face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real. We still have secretsâbut 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 canât shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now itâs my turn, if only he will let me.
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.
