Blurb
Some stories are a fairytale…but this isn’t one.Caelan Gregory’s life fell apart the night he went home and opened the door to find his whole family murdered.

When Sutton Hale moves into the apartment across the hall from Caelan she’s not prepared for her reaction to him. Something in his broken blue eyes calls to her—after all she’s always had an irrational need to fix everything.

But Caelan doesn’t do relationships or feelings. He does drugs and alcohol. However, he can’t ignore his desire to get to know the raven-haired woman across the hall.

Two broken souls trying to mend one another.

But not everything can be fixed.

In the end, Caelan and Sutton will have to learn that there is beauty in the ashes.

Sarah A’s Review ~ A Postcard Would be Nice by Steph Campbell

 

apwbn-ebookSeventeen-year-old Oliver Wu remembers four things about Saturday night.

  1. He remembers going to the party and seeing Paloma, the girl he’s had a crush on for years.
  2. He remembers the disappointment he felt when Paloma left early, just when he was sure his bravery had paid off.
  3. He remembers the room spinning and someone helping him up the stairs.
  4. He remembers waking up next to Tarryn, a girl he barely knows, with his clothes on the floor.

There’s just one notable memory missing.

Oliver doesn’t remember saying yes.

When Tarryn laughs off Oliver’s panic and tells him he should take her out for breakfast, he doesn’t say no. He stops himself from saying no to Tarryn for weeks because he’s waiting for what never comes—an honest answer about what happened that night.

With his friends shutting him out, and the rumors swirling, Oliver is turning into himself and just trying to make it through the rest of his senior year with his head down.

But the one person that Oliver wants to hide the truth from more than himself, Paloma, is the one person who won’t back down and accept his changed behavior. Oliver opening up to Paloma not only means facing what happened that night—it means airing a truth that could easily rip Paloma’s world wide open, too.

ALP SarahAReview Owl

I was impressed with how light this book felt when it dealt with such dark topics.  Topics that are rarely tackled in any sort of literature.  I have read books that didn’t cover nearly as tragic of circumstances with the grace Steph Campbell demonstrated in this book.

When I first saw the synopsis for A Postcard Would be Nice I was intrigued.  While I’ve read several books that have dealt with sexual assault never was the survivor a male or if it was the story wasn’t his and he was only a supporting character.  Oliver was a fresh face for an issue I feel very passionately about.   Though he is a fictional character I still felt a certain sense of bravery in having those words, his story in print for the world to read.  This book shed a much-needed light on male victims of sexual assault in a way that felt real.

My only wish for this book was that it was a little heavier.  While the overarching theme of the book was extremely heavy and uncomfortable for the masses, I would have loved more darkness.  In actuality, the book was nearly perfect and moments of levity helped to bring more life, believability, and relatability to Oliver’s story.  My personal preferences always lean toward the darker, heavier, more painful storylines and that is the only reason I would ask for more of a walk down that lane.

I have previously read and loved Steph Campbell’s books and have loved every one for different reasons.  She has the ability to make her books widely relatable while still dealing with very specific themes and I appreciate that about her writing.  Her books feel like they are, or could be a person’s true life story.  In a time when often stories tend toward the unbelievable (or at the very least, highly unrelatable) Ms. Campbell always lends a voice of truth to her stories and that is what keeps me returning to her books time and again.

But when the gallery owner propositions him on the first day, Trent can’t help but think his worlds are a little too close for comfort.

Will their high-voltage passion spark everlasting love or will their lives break the circuit between them forever?

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.

I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.

That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.

Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.

After We Fall by Melanie Harlow
Publication Date: November 28th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance

MHAfterWeFallBookCover5x8_BW_300.jpg

Synopsis:

Jack Valentini isn’t my type.

Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.

Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.

But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me for ten days, and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.

His huge, hard muscles.

Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.

And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife three years ago left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.

But he’s wrong.

I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.

Cover Reveal ~ Blackbird by Molly McAdams

blackbird-cr-banner

blackbird-coverFrom New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams comes a powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

I live in a world few know exist. I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life.

Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip.

Briar Chapman is going to be the death of me, and I don’t care. I’ll take every day with her until that death comes, and I’ll welcome it when it does.

On the outside, Lucas Holt is what nightmares are made of. A man cloaked in darkness, with sin-filled eyes and an enticing grin. A devil so devastatingly beautiful and cruel that his very presence instills fear.

But beneath his terrifying, ever-calm exterior is an affectionate man haunted by a past that refuses to stay buried. And Lucas looks at me as though he’s finally found the only person who can make it all go away.

We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night—and I want to lie in the wake of our war.

out-of-bounds-cover

The first rule of football–don’t screw with a streak.

My career is finally looking up, and I’m leading a new pro team down the field every Sunday. No way will I mess with that. But when I meet the most stunning and captivating woman I’ve ever seen, I tell myself one night will have to be enough.

But it’s not. And now I can’t get her out of my mind. Even when I’m playing. Even when I need to focus. Even when I’m on the hottest streak of my life.

And it turns out, she’s not just some random woman I met. She works for the team. My team.

***

I only have one goal this season–do my part as the team’s lawyer to keep them out of trouble. Help rebuild their reputation on and off the field. There’s no room for error and certainly no room for a secret tryst with a player . . . even if he’s the quarterback.

Right?

EXCERPT

When we reach her home, a cute little white bungalow, she gestures to the porch. It’s teeming with potted plants and flowers, as well as pizza coupons and takeout menus stuffed behind the mailbox next to the doorway. “Thank you, Andrew. For the drinks and the escort service.”

I wiggle my eyebrows because she says escort in kind of a naughty way. “And thank you for the surf angel-slash-nurse work.”

“My pleasure. I was happy to save a guy in distress.”

I narrow my eyes and protest her description. “Hey now. I’m not dude in distress.”

She whispers “just kidding” as she leans against her porch railing. I don’t think it’s intentional, but that pose shows off all her assets. The swell of her breasts in her tank top, her curvy hips, her strong legs. This woman just fucking does something to me. Turns me on, that’s what she does. Makes me hard as hell. Though she’s made it clear that the night ends right here, I intend to make the most of this good-bye.

I move closer to her and run my hand down her arm. I watch as goose bumps rise in its wake. My voice goes low. “Do you know what I’ve been thinking about?”

She tilts her head to the side. “What would that be, Andrew?”

It still sounds funny to hear her call me that. But next time I see her I’ll tell her that everyone calls me Drew. With my other hand, I brush her hair off her shoulder, cataloging her reaction to my touch. The way she shivers. How she sways closer. The rush of breath on her lips. I bring my mouth to her ear, and whisper. “What it would be like to kiss you.”

I pull back, wanting to look at her. Her lips are parted, then she licks them and swallows. It’s like she’s taking a step closer, saying go for it. “You should absolutely find out then,” she says, soft and inviting.

My fingers travel from her shoulder, up to her hair, and I rope my hand through those blond locks. I pull her close, savoring the warm feel of her sun-kissed skin and the smell of sand, surf, and sunshine in her hair.

I dip my mouth to hers, clasping her face in my hands. When I nip her bottom lip, she gasps. It’s such an alluring sound, and it turns me the fuck on even more. My dick would very much like to go inside her house tonight, but kissing is all that’s on the menu, so I kiss her in a way that’ll leave her wanting more. Because I want so much more of her, and I also want her to know that.

I’m not sure how I went from leaving the field when practice ended this morning, to spending the afternoon surfing to get my mind off all the changes I’m sure are coming, to kissing this beautiful stranger outside her Venice Beach home. But hell if I want to analyze this moment.

I spend my working hours making decisions, analyzing, choosing. Then executing.

Right now, I want to get lost in something that no one else controls but this woman and me.

Release Blitz & Review ~ A Harmless Little Ruse by Meli Raine ~ Sarah A’s Review

2-a-harmless-little-ruse-ebook-coverShe has no idea what she’s doing. Loose cannons never hit their targets.

And they take out plenty of collateral damage.

Four years ago Lindsay experienced the unspeakable right before me, and I couldn’t stop them.

But that’s all changed now.

When her father, Senator Bosworth, contacted me to ask — demand — that I protect her, it was a second chance. A shot at redemption.

An opportunity to right an unspeakable wrong.

Controlling Lindsay as she seeks her revenge on the monsters who hurt her won’t be hard.

Containing my own out-of-control feelings for Lindsay and keeping up this ruse of cold-blooded distance will be.

Even harder than admitting to her what really happened that night four years ago.

It turns out I don’t have to, though.

Someone else did it for me.

And I’ll make sure they regret it.

A Harmless Little Ruse is the second book in this political thriller/romantic suspense trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine, and is entirely from Drew’s perspective.

ALP SarahAReview OwlJESUS CHRIST!  I can not even comprehend the level of insanity that was A Harmless Little Ruse.  I can’t.  I have theories.  So many theories; some of the crackpot variety, some that may hold more of an educated viewpoint.  And I trust no one.  NO ONE.  Not even Lindsay and Drew.

I am so impressed with both books, I’ve read, in this trilogy.  Meli Raine has done an amazing job of weaving hundred of lines of suspicion, thousands of details that lead in a million directions, and lending credence to each of them.  Just when I think I’m sure I’ve figured out what is going on there is some sort of roadblock to that theory, but not a big enough to make that path impassable.  It’s an amazing piece of artistry that she has woven.  I imagine, if the books of this series were a tapestry, it would be enormous and vivid, primarily composed of red, blue, and purple, but with threads of the darkest black leading the eye away from the true focal point.  It is also a picture that will never be seen without having the perfect perspective and a high enough vantage point.

I have been left on tenterhooks, flailing for some sort of solid ground on which to plant my feet.  My mind is swirling, my heart racing, and my body aching from the intensity and stress this book put me through.  And left me in.  If i had access to A Harmless Little Game yesterday, it would not be soon enough.  I need resolution.  I need to know who and what and why and how and all of the things about the torture Lindsay and Drew were and are being subjected to.  I’m dying, in the best way possible, to find all the answers that will end this series.

New Release, Giveaway, and Review! – The Presence of Grace by Anie Michaels

 

 We are so happy Anie Michael’s new book is live and I can’t wait to share my review next week for The Presence of Grace!  — Whitney

 

 The Presence of Grace by Anie Michaels

Series: Love and Loss #2

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 18, 2016

Blurb

Devon Roberts was familiar with loss. He’d lost his wife and, in a way, he’d lost himself. Moving through life with two kids, doing everything he could to make life good again for his son and daughter, meant romance was the last thing on his mind.

Until he saw her.

Again.

She was the first person to make him feel as though loving someone else wouldn’t be wrong.

Even though he thought his loss was unbearable, he never could have fathomed she might have had more slip through her fingers.

He’d fought before; fought for his family, for his love, and for his life. But her fight, although buried deep and festering within, was a fight he wasn’t sure he had the strength to overcome.

All he knew for sure was that his life was better in the presence of Grace.

Whitney’s Four Star Review

I’ve been wanting Devon’s story ever since The Absence of Olivia was released!  The hot, single dad wasn’t always the most lovable character but it was easy to forgive because of his past.  The loss of his wife and complete upheaval of his life would cause any man pain and confusion.
I cried at the beginning of this book and it started off on great footing.  Devon immediately garners sympathy and Grace is a great heroine from the first time we meet her.  A schoolteacher with a past, her gentleness and shy demeanor are an obvious match for Devon and his children.
Overall, this is a sweet story of two people with devastating loss who learn to take chances and love again.  There are some sexy times and that is nicely balanced with emotional storyline.  The story is a bit predictable and slowed down a few times but I was very happy with the end.  The author’s writing flows well and there are some very cute moment with the kids.  Devon deserves happiness and Grace is the perfect woman to help him get there!
