KANDY

I was left broken, my heart beating a little bit harder in order to survive. I’d tried picking up the pieces, but when it came to Cane, it was hard to let go.

The way we touched was special and we promised to never forget one another. I had him right in the palm of my hand–thought everything was perfect–but in the blink of an eye, he was gone, leaving me with no choice but to pretend that what we had never existed.

CANE

She was off-limits to me, but I pushed the boundaries anyway. Now, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, my career slowly but surely slipping out of my grasp, and ghosts from my past returning to make things much more complicated.

My love life had never meant so much to me until I met Kandy.

After being knocked down and left stranded, any sane man would have stayed far away, but I wasn’t sane–not by a long shot.

I knew reality was harsh, and the universe had all the odds stacked against us. Despite it all, nothing was going stop me from making her mine again.

And if someone tried, they were going to have to go over my dead body first.

Picking right up where we left with Wanting Mr. Cane (Cane #1), All heck has broken out and everyone is involved! There’s Blood, there’s a concussion, there’s someone in jail… I don’t know which way to turn!!! 

How could love between two be so hard?

Kandy is now at the University of Notre Dame (Go IRISH!!) getting into the grove of living on her own, going to classes, and being a part of the baseball team. The only thing missing is Cane. He is in her head 24/7.

Cane is trying to smooth out so many fires going on in his life. I’m willing to call him up and let him take care of me too…. Just saying 😉 I have fallen for Mr. Cane, he is everything and more. 

Just when we think all the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed…

There’s so many people out to get these two. 

The ending…OMG never in a zillion years would I have expected this one!!! Pick up that flip phone hidden in your dresser behind toys and undies…Because that text… I NEED BOOK 3 NOW!!!!

When love hits you , it doesn’t care about age or color or even if it’ll hurt. 

description

And it hits hard!! Kandy Jennings is infected with love, the same ailment is eating up Quentin Cane alive. They’re so far apart, yet just a memory away in their souls. The story is is flowing way past the tragic mark almost into ugly-cry territory. Shanora has dipped her pen in pain & tears, impregnated it with misery and angst. I felt sorry, oh so hurtfully sorry for them. Why couldn’t the world leave them alone!!
My life was unusual. I only prayed my abnormal life would make me resilient one day. 

description

They’re just loving for God’s sake, not hurting anybody!!. Though I did understand Derek, I wanted to plead to his fatherly heart, have mercy you world!!
To say that I was teary eyed most of the time, is an understatement. I had in my prejudiced mind, assumed that Kandy was too young, what does she know about love, but as they say about people who assume……..
The book moved me so much, just spoke to my optimistic heart. I hope they get peace & happiness in their ever after and forever after. The utter pain that Kandy goes through, being judged and ridiculed, thrown out and alienated, it was heartbreaking 
Only a slut would be okay with sneaking around with a man who was nearly twice her age. Only a slut would fuck her father’s best friend, ruin everything, and still choose him afterward. 

description

One noteworthy thing here, shanora took a path less traveled and made Cane pretty strong. I mean he’s panty melting sexy and all, but he’s the calmness centers him, which in turn tethers Kandy and they don’t waste time in denial for long.
As shanora shows they have an uphill battle, actually more like Everest-mine trek!!
But we’re all in it together. We are right besides Kandy-cane, every step of the way, rooting for them and praying for them, and as long as they hold hands and eyes on each other, destinies should combine
when we’re together, it’s like nothing else matters. But when we’re apart, all of the demons start to pop up and reality is shoved into our faces and it’s harder to breathe— harder to think clearly.” 

description

“Should” being the operative word because as depicted in the end, shanora has a sinister twist planned and WTF is going on here ?!!😮

About CD Reiss:

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Oh My Qunbula what an explosive story!

description

Trust CD to write a heart thumping story which is thrumming with danger, there’s a buzz in the background, ebbing and flowing and we get a scary ride into the dark tunnels of Caden’s mind!! I was as anxious and apprehensive as Greyson, she’s a saint I tell ya. And all the other military wives whose husbands suffer from some from of anxiety and PTSD, a huge salute to you ladies !!!
I feel this story is about FAITH. Faith in your country to protect you, Faith in your partner to pull you through hard times, enough to make you want to be a better person and faith in yourself to try and control the demons in your mind. What happens when Faith is not enough and demons overpower your attempts ? You compartmentalize and lock some doors and pretend those cells don’t exist. That’s a brain’s survival mode!
Human beings were capable of selecting memories to suit their attitudes about present circumstances. We forgot the pain of childbirth to have more babies. We leaned over the toilet, swearing we’d never drink again, then said “thank you” when offered a fresh glass of wine. 

description

Unnecessary wars create casualties of all kinds and this series is expertly touching upon the adverse effects of Iraq War on US personnel. The daily dangers The twists and turns made me dizzy, I gasped, I swore, I was shit scared and I hurt.
I Knew it !! Knew that snake Ronin had the key, the ground zero of all this shitstorm! I effing knew it!! 
CD highlights the dangers these brave men and women face in the war zones on a daily basis. Bombs, mortars, suicide bombers, IEDs, insurgents, snipers, constant gunfire…….. it’s a critical and deadly lives they lead. This is more true of life saving Doctors who work round the clock, saving lives and treating patients, driving their bone tired bodies on caffeine shots, vitamins, and amphetamine.” 

description

And their spouses suffer with them
In the unwinding, my own feelings were freed. Disappointment unraveled to reveal anxiety, which dissolved into a puddle of worry that boiled with anger that steamed into sadness before soaking into resentment. 
Snipers being the deadliest cause they hide in minarets and shoot these people like flies.that leads to the need to constantly be hyper alert, looking over your shoulder or scopaesthesia , which may result in paranoia and ultimately PTSD.

description

Caden is already dealing with remnants of Balad & Abu Ghraib war in his mind, add to this Baghdadi posting under the constant bullets flying around and bombs exploding heightens the trauma. Now he’s dealing with a new THING. It’s buzzing like a swarm of drones or bees.
I knew sanity was a slippery concept, but Damon was gone, replaced by a buzz I didn’t know well enough to fear. I didn’t have time to attribute it to the pace of the work or even pure necessity. I only had time to get pieces of metal from a guy’s lungs.
This new Thing wanted her pain like a thirsty man wanted water. Damon was gone, but I was still broken in two.
 

description

Greyson wants to be there for him to pull him at the critical moment and offer herself up as therapy or cure, if you please.
This perilous move on her part results in a disaster.
Fucking Greyson hard was the way to get rid of Damon. This new Thing craved danger. 
I won’t say, I can’t say because my attempts are too tiny and puny in trying to explain. I’ll let CD do this job, go read this eye opening series and revel in the master craftsmanship of Christine. She’s a maestro in writing complex stories that deal with heart and brain.
I’d happily be MrsVitaminG to MajorRabbitsFoot. . Caden with sky in his eyes, your beauty and bravery just devoured me whole. I was enamoured by you and fallen completely in love with you. I wish I was your Greyson, your Vitamin G, to hold you, take your pain and talk you through it! Till then I’ll keep my small self folded and tucked between the pages of this story and call my self a part of it by association
You just can’t see the big picture. None of us can.”
“Maybe the picture’s too big for me.”
 

CANNOT wait for the next and hopefully last book, cause the ending gave me jitters!!!

Excerpt

When Anna opened her eyes hours later, Nick was back, stretched out on a sunbed, his skin bronzed and maybe even a little pink in places. 

She thought he was asleep because his eyes were hidden behind sunglasses, but then he turned his head toward her, and gave his trademark grin.

She started to speak, but he held his finger to his lips and silently stood up from the recliner, holding out his other hand in an invitation.

Again, Anna started to speak, but he shook his head, that slow, sexy smile curving his full lips upwards.

As she took his hand, the palm felt warm and slightly rough, and he wrapped his fingers around her, tugging gently.

Slipping slightly in her flip-flops, she followed him toward the sea.

He bent down and slid off her footwear, tossing them over his shoulder. Then they paddled through the clear, shallow water until the sea reached mid-thigh. The current tugged gently, feeling cool and delicious against Anna’s sun-heated skin.

As they cleared the rocky promontory, she found herself in a tiny, hidden cove; somewhere that could have been a smugglers’ cave in earlier times.

Nick pulled her against him, kissing her lips, her cheeks, her nose, her forehead; licking up the side of her neck, and tugging on her earlobes with his teeth.

His bare skin was hot under her searching hands, and then she felt his hard length straining against the shiny material of his lucky Speedos.

She paused.

She’d given him those swimming trunks, and he’d worn them for every game including his testimonial.

“These have a lot history,” she whispered against his throat.

Nick smiled wickedly but didn’t speak. His silence was tantalizing, drawing her into his game.

Anna let out a long breath that ended in a sigh.

Maybe he was right. Maybe they’d talked enough for now. Although in recent months there had been too many shadowed silences, too many things unsaid. Maybe now, connecting without words was something they both needed.

She silenced her busy mind and gave in to her body’s demands.

Anna gripped the thin material of Nick’s Speedos and pushed them over the firm globes of his ass. The material caught at the front on his thick cock and he groaned softly, sliding the material down the heavy muscles of his thighs and calves.

He gripped her waist pulling her towards him as he kissed her chest, nuzzling her breasts and biting her nipples through her bikini top.

She felt rather than saw him undo the twin bows that held her bikini together at her shoulders, not knowing where he threw it, not caring.

He didn’t bother to remove the bikini bottoms, simply nudging the material aside and lifting her up quickly.

Anna gasped, then wrapped her legs around him, sinking down, sliding shaft to root.

He used his incredible strength to lift her up and down—slow, deep strokes that she felt to her core. The sun beat down on her head, on her back, on her arms, and the heat built up inside her, the movement becoming rougher and more uneven.The coil of desire tightened inside her, threatening to spring loose at any second, at any moment, at any…Anna shrieked as her orgasm struck, and she quivered and shook in Nick’s arms. He swore quietly as he exploded inside her and slowly sank to his knees, the hot sand coating Anna’s sweat-slick back.They lay together on the baking sand, hot and sweaty and sticky, their mouths open, their eyes closed.

Ok first of all..Stuart Reardon- WOWZA ! 

description

Now that the ogle party is dealt with, let’s focus on the story part. Gasp-worthy & in depth look at the modelling world and a fabulous take of it from a male POV. I’ll be honest, I thought male models had it easy. Myths are shattered and often ugly truths exposed in the book. So mouth agape and all, I loved the book.
Its a life-changing moment for any athlete to play his last game and then say goodbye to his field and team. They’ve been living/breathing the sport as long as they can remember and their life has molded around it.
With all the injuries I’ve had, I should be glad it’s my last game, but deep down I’m not. I don’t know what I’m going to do next— midlife crisis here I come. It’s like leaving home again— I’m leaving the comfort of team sport, leaving the lads I’ve grown to call brothers, leaving the commitment, the comradery, the lifestyle, the sense of being a part of something bigger than myself. 

description

The night it all ends, voluntarily or due to injury, retirement brings down the mountain of identity crisis crashing down on the player. His moorings are untied and he drifts. An insightful, informative and behind the scenes look into the life of Rugby Player -Nick Renshaw. He retirs and is now trying to find a motive, an aim to get up in the morning, something to get excited about. I have to be honest here, I went in quite blind. I was expecting a raunchy, smutty description of a high profile lifestyle that I assumed belonged to cover models and pinup models. Boy ! Was I wrong. 
whole process of modelling a lot vain and a little ridiculousness. 

description

This book I believe closely resembles Stuart’s own transition from a 16 year rugby career to a successful and famous model life. But I guess, or I’m hoping it’s quite fictionalized. I wouldn’t wish a Molly on my enemies even !!
“It’s slam dunk and Fuck You, Mouldy McKinney! 
Struggles, trials, injuries, pockmark self-dignity at times in the search for Destiny. 
What happens next?
What defines me?
Who am I?
He’d achieved what he set out to do— there should be no regrets. But it was so damn hard to let go, so hard to unplug.
I’ll never replace this. Rugby is under my skin, it’s in my blood, it flows through my soul.
What am I, who am I, now I no longer have rugby?
 

description

It’s itching his soul, flaking his psyche and battering his confidence. Add to this the over supportive fiancee, scandals that don’t seem to die down, an ex whose talons are embedded deep in his life and painful injuries. That all tests their relationship and patience starts to wear thin at times.
The story was so poignant and truthful, I could feel Nick’s frustration and Anna’s desperation.
It was such a departure from the usual sports romance where the Hero has it all and is strutting through life with a sexy heroine in his arms, mouthing smutty dialogues, having sexathons and everything in life is served on a golden platter.
Nope, this book turns the golden picture around and shows you the flip side , hidden life of the players and models and Inner workings.

description

I loved reading it, I was engrossed into this world Stuart and Jane created. It’s forthright, upfront and candid at most times, which was a breath of fresh air. No false promises or rosy glasses here. Everything is stark and genuine. I wish I had read book 1 first, but I’ll be doing that now. They’re standalone so this one could be read as is.
Also noteworthy is gay element in the storyIt’s s not caricature-like, but people with feelings, that get hurt when taunted and bullied, when closeted and revealed, when abandoned and accepted. 
Pick up this book if you want a unique sports romance book, so far away from the generic cookie-cutter books. If nothing, pick it up for Hot Stuart Reardon and if the scenes are as true as I felt them to be, they’ll melt your panties and then your heart😜
Anna was limp, lying on her side with her thighs pressed together— even her skin seemed in shock with the thoroughness of Nick’s love-making. 
There’s hot sex alright, but there’s also soft romance, not the usual “You’re Mine, Come for me” dialogues but heartfelt words that may have been spoken to some very wonderful woman in Stuart’s life.😍 swooooooooooon! 
Like Brendan says “A good rogering by the rugby Romeo. I’m totes jelly.” 
This book has it all, feelings, emotions, tears, laughter, smiles, pain and ultimately bliss.

I never imagined that I would fall for cowboys! But after this second visit to Julep Ranch, I’m ready to save a horse and ride a cowboy!!!

Jarret has a heart of gold. Will do anything and everything to protect his family and farm. The pact the 4 of them made that day always in the fore thought. Scars to remind them. One by one till peace is found. 

When the sassy, back bone stronger than cement, Maybe arrives at the bar… Jarret has guard up. There’s something there but only time will tell what she is up to.

Maybe is out to find answers. Everything has pointed her to Julep Ranch. What she didn’t expect was to find someone who would cause her to step back and find out who she truly is. 

Family is certainly not made up of blood. We find that in Buckled, family is who you are branded with. 

Absolutely loved Jarret and Maybe. Now I’m ready for Lorne’s story! And to find out what happens with what they acquired that doesn’t belong to them!!! 

 

621b5-20180226_070300Screen_Shot_2017-09-10_at_7.48.56_AM_medium

 

Welcome Back to Julep Ranch. Here 4 young friends grew up, fell in love, struck eternal friendship bonds and they still hold those ties sacred, come what may. And Pam throws a a LOT their way.
The mood is reminiscent and rebuilding. It’s a “lying-in-wait” kind of vibe you can feel.

description

Pam has a gift. She can shove a fist in your rib cage and squeeze your heart tight. She can make you FEEL! She can make you fall in love with bad boys, make you root for them, make you cry with them and then make you smile too. Her stories stay with you ALWAYS. Nobody writes angst and desperate love like Pam.

description

Buckled is following KNOTTED, the story that introduced us Jake & Jarrett Holston, Connor & Lorne and their Blood Vow. The circumstances leading up to the vow were dreadful and life-shattering, to say the least. Though Jake & Conor are limping back to normal, Lorne is being missed, and Jarrett is still a third wheel. The boys are working hardest to restore their Julep Ranch, troublesome situations are being dealt with, threats are being removed but still it’s a long way to go before happiness and prosperity returns for good in the grief stricken & devastated Ranch. She made my heart cry tears of blood in KNOTTED, the despair and bereavement still continues , a tad diluted though. 

description

Maybe Quinn visits the Julep Ranch . Her motives are ambiguous, her movements suspect. She’s on a truth finding mission, which puts her on a collision path with Jarrett. Sluething on naive Maybe’s part is embarassing and hilarious . Hearts collide, beat and get tangled together. The story floats on air from here. Their lust pink cloud getting rosier and fluffier and I, as a reader, am on a high just watching them explore each other, body and soul.
He shackled my heart with his, and I wish he would lose the key to that lock. The steady beat of his love against mine empowers me, strengthens me, makes me believe that as long as we’re together, it’s enough. We’re enough. 

description

The thunderstorm scene was explosive, orgasmic and euphoric. I still am getting goosebumps picturing it. So powerful in love, so intense in passion, so perplexing in dejection , this story will echo and resonate in your heart. The music will bounce off of your walls, will drown you , yet won’t let you drown
Cold drops, sultry air , and the distant rumble of thunder— there’s something celestial about kissing this man in the rain. It’s a frenzied moment that refuses to wait. An outpour of love desperate for connection, uncaring about soaked clothes or chilled skin. It’s a rebellion against threatening winds and depressing conditions. Nature brings the rain, but we stand against it, united in mutual need. 

description

I felt overwhelming, staggering sentiments. I loved and fell in love, hurt and was ready to hurt, was destroyed and ready to kill, I was rescued and was ready to live happily ever after. 
I still have a long way to go with these characters. I’m definitely sure next book will be explosive & provide the closure so badly needed .

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Publisher: Self Published

Release Date: July 6 2018

Edition/Format: Edition~ 1st /Format ~ eBook & Print

Blurb/Synopsis:

What she saw was enough to make her a liability. 
 
Aubry Clark was thrilled with the direction her life was headed.  AC Interiors, her design business, was taking off thanks to high profile clients like Liam Lockwood and Mike Chesterfield, giving her a chance. She could practically taste the success she was about to come into and the steamy cat and mouse games between her and perpetual bachelor, Mike, didn’t hurt either. 
 
Until one day, just before sunrise, she went down to the docks to set up a photo shoot she’d dreamed up. She wanted to capture a colorful graffiti wall to use against the minimalist décor she had in mind for an upcoming project. But what she accidentally captured instead, was about to change her life forever.
 
The click of her camera shutter was the last untroubled sound she heard. When a muffled scream ripped through the air, Aubry turned around.
 
That was her first mistake. 
 
When men dressed in black, forcefully shoved a scantily-clad girl in a shipping container and set their sights on her, Aubry ran.

Then, Jackson Emery appeared.

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…

I prayed for him to be mine.

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

5 Always and Always Stars


Zoom in…
Once you zoom in, you realize we are all similar in so many ways. We all bleed red and even monster’s hearts can break. Just got to remember to always zoom in. 

Brittainy Cherry can write a book like no other!!! Takes everyday people and their love and heartbreak…wraps it up in a novel that you cant stop reading. So many ah ha moments in her book that not only gives you the right feelings but opens your eyes to seeing life in a better way. 

They’re gonna bleed you out till you’re nothing and then they’re gonna ask how you died. 

That is life… The people who are the first to run to you to find out what is happening in your life, they are always the first ones to run their mouth. Spreading the rumors, talking about you like you are an imagination. With Grace, she was raised the PC (Preachers Child) and was always expected to let everything roll off her shoulders. Sit up, hold your head higher and let it go. For goodness sakes, her father was the preacher…cant let rumors bring down the church and all that her father and his father and his father worked so hard building.

Every person deserves a haven. A place they can go to breathe fresh air, because sometimes life can be toxic. 

Jackson has been living the dark life for quite some time. Snapping that wrist band, taking the sledge hammer to the junk cars out back. Vowing to not break sobriety. Although the feeling he got when he was using was outstanding, once you came down, you still were in the dark. 

I just imagined that a man who was that built upstairs couldn’t be that built down below. 

Grace and Jackson are from two different lifestyles. Yet they couldn’t be more alike and better for each other. The families hate each other and have raised their children to hate each other. But does anyone know the reason behind all the hatred these families hold against each other? 

Absolutely LOVED this book! As with all of this authors books, you are sucked in and held hostage until you finish. I laughed, I cried, I held my breath and I shook my head. This book gave me everything I need in a book.

Powerful Emotions 
This book packs a punch, will knock you down, make you walk through a gamut, you’ll look at the walls adorned with beautiful artwork of human relationships. A girl is on a brink of a major upheaval in life, which throws everything she’s ever believed in up in disarray.
Our lives had been so tangled together that I was almost certain he took parts of me when he untied our love.
Who was I supposed to be now?
Was I even still a person of my own accord?
Without Finley, did I even exist?
 

To find a way out of this fog of deceptions and betrayals, she finds a beacon of hope in the town’s monster. Together they support each other and try and fix their broken lives. The strongest underlying message is empowerment of women. Not lay down and be treated as a doormat, but find a voice and follow it, shed the shackles of their subjugation. Believing in themselves rather than feeling lost without men.creating their own identity and not losing their sparkle in shadows of their men
Love was a messy emotion that didn’t walk a straight line. It worked in waves and loops of ups and downs. It was a screwy emotion that could somehow still exist amidst the ultimate heartbreak and betrayal. .

description

The most amazing thing about picking up a Brittainy Cherry book is that you’re guaranteed to have an emotional storm in your heart. Sympathies swirl and twist , uplift and drown, ebb and flow , sweeping you in a river swollen with moods , tempers and sentiments. The story pierced straight in my heart with its honesty and passion. My eyes were overflowing and my insides were twisting. I rooted for Grace & Jackson, cried for them, was ready to fight their families the town, the entire world for them.
I wished there was a way to stop it— to shut off the love faucet, to make my heart stop feeling.
But still, it felt.
Still, it burned.
 

description

They go through so much torment, such anguish, such conflict, I was done. I was ready to take a hammer and beat up a car or something, trash a shop, break some bottles,  anything to vent my anger. Every couple Brittainy creates, they’re beautiful but broken souls, victims of life and its circumstances.

description

In a small town in Georgia, A damsel meets a monster and she zooms in close enough to see deep into  his beautiful soul hidden behind the perceived  ugliness. It takes a lot of courage, a lot of patience and a lot of generosity of spirit, all of which Grace Harris has in abundance.
You just needed faith the size of mustard seed that no matter what, things would work out. 
Schooled to be a perfect  lady, Programmed to behave like a Stepford wife, as she and her sister Judy have to hide their ambitions, thoughts, emotions and opinions to themselves and trim their personalities to fit into the “Pastor’s Family”  expected framework. 
Jackson and his dad are town monsters. Beasts to be feared and avoided at all costs and ridiculed whenever.  They’re ostracized by day but solicited at night by horny women looking to be fixed
The women of that town had no problem hating me when the sun shone while moaning my name when the shadows of the night fell. I was the secret escape from their fake realities. Some kind of challenge for their well-behaved Southern souls. 

description

I cant, won’t give the story away, but I’ll say this.It just surprises you at every turn every chapter the story develops and reveals truths. Ugly truths about small townspeople mentalities and it’s prejudices
On the other hand there’s beautiful truths about kindred spirits finding solace together, healing their wounded hearts together
“when you zoom in, when you truly look at the person beside you, you’ll see many of the same things. Hope. Love. Fear. Anger. Once you zoom in, you realize we are all similar in so many ways. We all bleed red, and even monster’s hearts can break. Just gotta remember to always zoom in.”
To always zoom in…
 

description

This book is not JUST  a story, its a pious sermon, reminding us to open our hearts always. Let the fresh air of acceptance and love come in, swirl around, drive away demons of prejudices, stink of bias and mould of judgements out of our hearts. 
“If you turn your back on one, then you turn back on all and THAT is the ultimate sin- to disgrace God’s people.
It’s poetry in motion, changing mood from poignant to angry to lusty to passionate to angsty to frustration and eventually acceptance. The story flowed so smoothly and flawlessly I didn’t even find time to put it down. Engrossing completely, I was totally submerged. Pick up this book when it releases and just enjoy the beautiful journey !

Synopsis: Years ago, I was burned by a woman.

 

I forgave, but I haven’t forgotten, and it’s a road I’ll never go down again.

 

My career has become my life instead. I’m Max Graham, the biggest music agent in the business. Women love me, but I don’t do love anymore. I’ve found another way to meet my needs.

We might just have the hottest sex life in Miami and LA.

 

We don’t date anyone else—although, sometimes, we invite someone for a night. We travel the world, and I lavish her with gifts. But she knows my career comes first.

 

And the best part? For the past two years, she’s been happy with our arrangement.

Or so I thought.

 

I’ve survived heartbreak once before, but this one could be the end of me.

5 LA to Miami Stars!!!

I have enjoyed all the books so far on the Men of “The Agency” but Max’s story in Contracted is by far my most favorite! Written flawlessly and flowed perfectly, I was unable to put this book down once I started. 

Max is a workaholic always on the go, meetings, dinners, concerts, you name it. But that is what has made him who he is. Willing to work 16 plus hours a day, 7 days a week has granted him the lifestyle that he has worked so hard to get. 

Eve is just like Max, being a stylist to so many LA customers, she has built the business from ground up and is constantly on the run from client to client. Her business is the world to Eve. 

Two years into a relationship together, with Max based out of Miami and Eve in LA, how much longer can these two continue to meet up on the whim. Count on a free 20 minutes to catch a quickie together? Its hard for anyone to do a long distant relationship. Now toss in two job obsessed individuals. Set up for a disaster or set up for the long run?

This book had all the feels!!! Not to mention a great present from Eve to Max in the first part of the book –insert warning to wear sham-wow panties during this part—had me squirming in my chair!!! Absolutely loved how headstrong both Eve and Max were. Eve didn’t back down from her ‘More’ plea and Max stood behind her in what she chose. 

Great Job Marni!!! This book was awesome!!!

 

621b5-20180226_0703007188d-images-19

 

This is the BEST book of the series. We’ve had Brett & James story , Jack & Samantha story, so Max & Eve story was next step and it’s a giant leap from first book, In terms of heat, angst, tears & Passion. Max Graham is self confessed workaholic. An ambitious agent on the rise & rise and he works his tight ass off, for it. Eve Kennedy is his counterpart & match in ambition, zeal, passion and sexuality. She’s an equal partner throughout their relationship. Choosing to remain in-the-moment, no strings attached, no future planning, no tantrums, no monogamy. It’s a match made in heaven where hungry bodies need to be fed & replenised, hearts are kept aside.
“We’re talking about Max Graham. That man doesn’t compromise. He’s as ruthless in business as he is in the bedroom and everyday life. It’s his way. Always. And there are no exceptions.” 

description

That becomes a problem because Eve’s heart develops a crack and feelings seep in
They. Are. Doomed !.
She starts looking for MORE , could be James’s impending nuptials, or her ticking biological clock or the fact that Max has consumed her senses all around.
I want to wake up next to you every morning . I want to eat breakfast with you when we get home from the gym. I want to jump in the shower with you as you’re getting ready for work. I want to see your face over candlelight. I want your lips to be the last thing I kiss before I close my eyes. 

description

Now the story is at an impasse and Marni skillfully negotiates around the minefield of emotions, carrying wounded hearts and career mirages. Skirting around personal ambitions and golden futures, they are charging at windmills it seems. Marni is a master at writing smouldering sex scenes, very detailed yet fresh, she keeps the readers spellbound and this book is no different. I was moist in my eyes and otherwise😜 it touched my heart and my soul at multiple places.
Eve, You deserved more.
I know that.
I wish I’d given it to you.
I wish you’d let me give it to you now. —Max
 

description

Im guessing Scarlett still hasn’t met her match or else her book would be out too
#WriteMarniWrite, we need scarlett’s story and probably Shawn’s story next. Come to think of it, could be just one book **hint..hint** marni!😉
Amazing story, I read it in one go!

fire was the ultimate cleanser. Tremendous heat consumed all in its path— nature’s way of wiping the slate clean. 
Fire is the foreplay and fire is the climax of this story, a lot of scorching-burning sex in between.
O’Shea brothers are being hunted and destroyed.
Yes, we were the O’Shea Brothers.
Irish blood.
Vengeful souls.
Killer hearts.
Dallas Callaghan picked the wrong family to cross.
 

So they are on the run with Alana, their baby sister and her best friend of sorts, Monet the Witch, Monet Guinevere McKnight. They all land up in Ireland, living off the land. Men toiling and women housekeeping. The primitive living in the middle of nowhere, the hard work builds up a lot of energy which they find releasing in oomph-worthy screaming, steaming sexdescription

Monet is an informal bride to be shared by all and an unwilling hostage becomes a willing participant as her inner sexual diva is unleashed.
The brothers – Cal, Rogan, Derrick, Nolan are all men of the soil, yet mafia in their blood. They treat Monet callously as a fuck-toy which soon balances to an equal partner
The story was good, scenes were scorching and steaming.
I felt it lacked story depth, Is all

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.

The Bad Ones
The book starts with Constantine coming back to Fuller with Dulcie. They’re revisiting all the places that hold special meaning to them & I think they’re looking for closure that’s why they’re walking amongst the ruins of their past. old urges die hard and the itch of seeking scent of blood has started to tear its head. At the risk of their arrest, they go and break into homes just to see observe and get closure but the end is surprising as they revert to their old selves.

Muscle Memory is probably one of the best books I’ve read in my life . Jon gets a phone call from the hospital saying Delaney has been in an accident as he rushes over, its a sense of Deja Vu. my heart jumped to my throat, I swear. it’s not funny stylo!! How mean of you to scare us like that but it’s still the most beautiful story even after a tiny hearystopping snippet.

In the Twin Estates follow up, wulfric just got married to Katya and it’s a heavy and hot beginning to their honeymoon. And what would wulfric and Katya be without Liam. he has a hilarious guest appearance part to play in this fabulous follow up .
I didnt realise how much I missed the trio !!

With a

something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and
neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our
twisted family tree.
 
I wasn’t

They
weren’t my parents.

4 Lemon Pie Stars

I absolutely love the way Stephie Walls can draw you into a book just by the blurb. This book is exactly what the blurb states…

I wasn’t her brother.
They weren’t my parents.
Not that it mattered…

She was off limits.

Portia was placed with her foster family after she lost her mother from drugs. She was adopted by the loving couple who raised her since that day. 

Jude was a in and out foster child. With no other family, he was placed in the home when his mother’s illness spiked. 

Years have gone by; Jude and Portia were the children that Hensley and Ernie could never have. Family vacations, school functions, family dinners…they raised Jude and Portia like they were their own children. 

When feelings get to be too much for these two to hide, is it truly wrong that they want to be together? Even though everyone sees them as brother and sister?

It’s a battle of right and wrong in their minds. Right because it feels so good when they are together. Wrong because they’ve been raised as brother and sister. 

It’s a tug of war, back and forth, should we or should we not. Reasons vs. Doubt. Which side will win? At what cost to the people who have raised you as their own.

The Heart Wants What The Heart Wants 
Let me start by saying that love follows no boundries, no age, no relations. It’s wonder when Portia and Jude, foster kids in Shaw home, just stumble & fall in love. It’s messy, conflicting, tearing, slaying love
This was the Portia I’d loved as a kid, through the various awkward stages of puberty, and now into adulthood—although each with a different passion. 

description

Hearts oscillate between should we/shouldn’t we constantly, which became annoying but I tota Lily get it. Social restrictions ,Tabboo relationship, which is technically not forbidden, but they are young kids. Moral compass is going haywire, physical reactions belie sensible morals.
I wasn’t her brother
They weren’t my parents
Not that it mattered……
She’s off limits
 

At times, maybe few only, Portia seemed self absorbed and childish. Jude was angry and frothing with jealousy more than she was.  But at least he read smut. #GoJude!!
Pick up this slow burn story and watch your heart twist & hurt
