 August 24th 2018

 

I try not to think too hard about the fact that in order for me to live, someone else had to die.

Everyone gets to live.
Some for longer than others.

For Violet, born with a life threatening heart defect that has controlled her twenty-one-years, life has been anything but easy.

When reality is a high-risk game of trial and error, Violet finds solace the only way she knows how – with a brush in her hand.

But everything can change in a heartbeat.

Surrounded by loving family and the best friend a girl could ask for, Violet must ask the universe for the biggest favour of all – the one that will keep her alive.

Tear-jerking, agonising and uplifting, My Heart Needs will give you hope for today and each day that follows after.

REVIEW : Finding Perfect by Ella Miles

 

 

Finding Perfect

  

Finding Perfect
  —
  Ella Miles
September 24th 2018

 

I want the perfect man, and Ace Knight isn’t him.

He’s a foul-mouthed, pothead, tattooed bastard.
He may have saved my life, but he also cost me my nursing career with one smug kiss.
Now I’m broke, homeless, and jobless.

I wanted a man in a suit.
Tall, dark, and handsome.
Not broken, cursing, and cynical.

Knight thinks I’m the perfect woman for him.
Perfect to help him keep his ex-wife from inheriting his millions.
I can’t refuse his offer. I need the money.

But what if he expects me to…sleep with him.
I can’t…I won’t…until he smirks and then I’m toast.
I think I need a new plan.

Bad boy + flawed girl does not equal perfect.

How to Lose a Fiancé by Stefanie London

Release Date: June 17, 2019

Cover.jpg

How to Lose a Fiancé, Book #2 in the Greek Billionaires contemporary romance series by USA Today Bestselling author Stefanie London.

Sophia Andreou has always been the “good daughter” who tried to keep her domineering father happy. She followed the rules and did everything that was asked of her. But this time, her father is asking too much. The family company is crumbling, and her father has arranged a marriage to a Greek billionaire who can save their property business. What?! Umm no thank you. If Cinderella can dress up to win a prince, surely Sophia can do the opposite and ditch hers…

Dion Kourakis has come a long way from being an orphan with only a single friend to his name. Now he runs a billion-dollar investment company and has the respect of everyone in Europe. His charming personality covers a lot of emotional scars, including his desire to make his mentor proud. Dion doesn’t exactly want a bride to go along with his next business deal, and he plans on letting the lass down gently when they meet…

Only, his future bride has turned out to be nothing like what he thought she’d be. She’s quirky and has a habit of turning up to social events in strange outfits. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what she’s up to, but the harder she tries to convince him she’d be an awful wife, the more he wants to convince her they’d be perfect together.

CAN THIS BE READ AS A STANDALONE?

Yes! Each book in this series features a different couple, so they can be read in any order.

Excerpt:

He expected some hesitation from her over the marriage thing. Hell, he’d hesitated himself. It had taken him a full two weeks to process her father’s offer—or rather, ultimatum—and come to grips with the idea of marrying a stranger. Seeing his mentor, Elias, hooked up to half a dozen different machines after having a fall in his home, with tubes coming out of every orifice, had finally pushed him over the edge.

Closure was now within Dion’s grasp, he could shut the final page of his father’s book. He wanted that feeling so bad he could taste it…so bad he would marry a stranger.

“We have plenty of time to get to know one another.” Dion motioned for her to follow him outside. “Your father told me that you’ve been working in the family business.”

“That’s right. I’ve been doing some general admin,” she replied. “And I have my own virtual assistant business, too.”

The sun had set some time ago, but the lights dotted around the garden brightened the front of the house. He unlocked the car and held the door for her.

“Ah, so you’re a businesswoman. I’m sure we’ll have a lot to talk about, then.”

“Sure, although it’s not real passion in life, to be honest.” She looked at him expectantly, as though wanting an invitation to elaborate.

“What would you rather be doing?” he asked.

The car’s engine rumbled as he pulled out of the circular path in front of the four-car garage. A warm breeze carried the salty tang of the ocean into the car.

“You know, I’m really passionate about taxidermy.” Sophia nodded as though this was the most normal thing to say. “There’s just something about animals that fascinates me.”

“Taxidermy?” He frowned. “Like, stuffing dead animals?”

“Stuffing or mounting,” she said. “It includes both.”

Was she for real? Her expression didn’t reveal even a sliver of amusement.

“I see it as a way to prolong an animal’s life,” she explained. “I know it might seem a little strange, but trust me. When I bring my collection over, you’ll see how wonderful it is.”

He gulped. “Your collection?”

“Yes, I have a huge collection. Squirrels and racoons and a couple of cats that I found. Strays, you know. Lots of people think they have time for a pet and then they just dump them. I even have a fox. She’s a real beauty. I was thinking we could put her in the living room. Or maybe the foyer, so she can greet guests.” She clapped her hands together. “Baroness Sasha Foxington III would absolutely love that.”

Baroness. Sasha. Foxington the fucking third.

Was he in a nightmare right now?

Sophia reluctantly agrees to an arranged marriage to protect her mother. She flies out to Corfu to meet her soon to be fiancè but she has a plan.

Dion wants to buy Sophia’s fathers company for personal reasons and if that means a bride being in deal then who is he to say no. He wants the company more than anything else. I didn’t even mind that he is a millionaire. He did act like it and he doesn’t have a string of women.

I rarely wander into the rom com genre there is just something that rubs me the wrong way. Keeping a balance where it is funny but not going over the line to ridiculous is a difficult feat. I found that this applied here. The plot was a bit thin and could have had more depth. But rom com is meant to be fluffy. The writing is excellent and engaging.

I was enjoying it up until the 28% mark and then I hit a snag. The heroine was about to do something stupid but she managed to backtrack but in the end it all blew up in her face. She knew it was a bad idea yet she did it anyway.

I liked it but if you love rom coms then this is the book for you.

Worn out and on the run, Aries Bracken’s life has quickly gone from bad to worse. Kidnapped by a team of mercenaries, she tries to convince their domineering commander that he has taken the wrong woman. She’ll play the helpless female until they slip up and when they do, she’ll be gone!

Skin Walker Commander Conn Drago’s mission was simple, retrieve the woman and deliver her for payment. However, he quickly discovers that not only is the beautiful and spirited Aries not the intended target; she’s also unaware of the fact that she too is a Skin Walker. When Conn realizes others are hunting Aries as well, he can’t fight his compulsion to protect her. He’ll have to battle both her unknown enemies, his own Skin Walker kind, and Aries’ desire to be free to claim what he has decided belongs to him.

Leto (Skin Walkers, #6)

  

Leto
Skin Walkers #6
Susan A. Bliler
April 23rd 2013

 

Shy Brookes is in a world of hurt. Attempting to rescue the handsome man she discovered her fellow scientists were hoping to use as a live specimen, Shy finds herself locked up and tortured in a cell of her own. When a team of mercenaries tears through the facility and effectively rescues her, Shy assumes her problems are over. Wrong! The team of Skin Walkers insist that she belongs to the handsome prisoner she’d attempted to free. Claiming she carries the man’s scent, the Walkers are determined to return her to her mate.

Leto Reigns doesn’t know who’s to blame for his captivity at the Megalya labs, but he’s certain Shy has played a role. She’s admitted to being an employee of the facility that hunts and experiments on his kind…Skin Walkers. His plan is to snap her pretty little neck the first chance he gets, but first he’s determined to find out why she carries his scent. He’ll have to control his temper and his disconcerting attraction to the auburn haired beauty to get his answers, if she’d stop running from him long enough to allow him to get close.

REVIEW : King (Skin Walkers #1) by Susan A. Bliler

 

 

King (Skin Walkers, #1)

  

King
Skin Walkers #1
Susan A. Bliler
October 28th 2013

 

A consummate professional, Lilly Worthington, has been personal assistant to CEO, Monroe StoneCrow for years. In that time, she’s witnessed much that leads her to believe there is something strange about Monroe and his staff. Tight-lipped and unwilling to rock the boat, Lilly performs her duties with skilled efficiency. Nothing could make her falter from her schooled indifference to the odd occurrences that plague StoneCrow…that is until King Mulholland arrives.

After years of being surrounded by Monroe’s gorgeous staff, Lilly is disconcerted to find that she cannot shake her attraction to King. Worse, he’s assigned as Monroe’s Chief of Security meaning he’s constantly in her presence. The distraction of King coupled with sudden threats at home has Lilly wondering if the two aren’t somehow connected. Are Monroe and King hiding something?

Skin Walker, King Mulholland, is called home to repay a debt to his friend, and Dominant Skin Walker, Monroe StoneCrow. Determined to even the field and then move on, King goes to great lengths to avoid Monroe’s machinations where pairing Walkers is concerned. Only two things stand between King and his freedom: Monroe’s scheming, and Lilly Worthington.

Inexplicably drawn to Monroe’s personal assistant, King is certain Monroe is somehow to blame. King struggles to fight his urges where Lilly is concerned; however, when Lilly is attacked all bets are off. Single-minded, feral, possession consumes him and his need to protect Lilly begins to outweigh his desire to play hardball with Monroe.

When King is finally stricken with what Monroe calls the affliction, King is more than ready to claim his angel…he is eager!

REVIEW : Marko (Skin Walkers #16) by Susan A. Bliler

 

 

Marko (Skin Walkers, #16)

  

Marko
Skin Walkers #16
Susan A. Bliler
 December 29th 2017

 

Thea Kinsey is pregnant with a Skin Walker child and on the run. Worse, how does she explain to the father that she shot him by accident? There’ll be no explaining. He’s vowed retribution and Thea has no choice but to run fast and hard to keep from being caught.

Marko Storm is as messed up as they come. Having been captured by Skin Walker enemies years ago, he’s never been able to fully control his shifts or abilities. Things get even worse when Thea’s injected with some strange drug that has him unable to resist her. When Thea disappears from the Estate, Marko goes on the hunt, and when he finds Thea, the affliction hits with a powerful blast that’s almost as painful as the bullet she shoots into him. Thea doesn’t know that since their coupling, Marko’s completely lost the ability to shift, but that won’t keep him from hunting her. He knows she’s carrying his baby and once he finds Thea, he plans to capture and to keep.

****

“Hang on!” Marko shouted as he climbed into the truck and twisted the key in the ignition. Jamming the truck into gear, it lurched forward even as panic hit.

Thea’s hope that the dart had been a placebo, meant to terrify instead of doing any real damage, faded a quick death as her overheated body and suddenly sensitized flesh told her they’d definitely injected her with something. Moaning, Thea curled in on herself.

“Thea, hang on!”

She couldn’t formulate words, so she lifted a shaky hand and grabbed the empty tranq dart beside Marko’s thigh where he’d dropped it onto the seat.

His eyes shot down, and he cursed. “Fuck! What is it?”

She could only shake her head as her belly clenched hard, shooting pain to her sex that was surprising and frightening. She breathed through the round of agony and only caught bits of Marko’s words as he spoke into his comm.

“I don’t know what the fuck it is, but she’s in pain! Yes, I know she’s a SW friendly. I’ve read her file!”

Another wave of agony hit, and she breathed deep and slow, embarrassed that her clit suddenly chose this moment to come to life and find the friction of the denim bunched between her legs enticing.

“We can’t come in! They’re on us. I need help!”

Thea heard him say someone was on them and she struggled up with a groan to peer out the back window. The movement was a mistake. On her knees, the material of her pants pressed tighter against her clit and had her rocking forward and backward. Why did it feel so good? What in the hell is going on?

“Thea, stay down!” Marko’s large hand on her back flattened her to the seat before he went back to his conversation. “Someone just took ‘em out. We’re making a run for it. We’ll hole up and wait for you to come to us.”

Thea slid to the floor and squeezed her legs tighter, rocking quicker until to her utter mortification, orgasm seized her. She breathed through it and prayed Marko couldn’t tell. Huddled on the floor of the truck she moaned and wanted to cry when the pain returned full force and then some. Her orgasm only gave her a brief respite. Oh no!

“I don’t know,” Marko barked, and she peeked up from where she hid her face in arms resting on her knees to see him snag the dart from the seat. He held it to his nose and inhaled deeply. “I smell…” He paled and didn’t respond. Slowly, his eyes left the road and slid to her. His mouth fell open and his eyes rounded in horror as he stared at her in complete shock.
