I chased, you pushed

I chased, you friend zoned

I chased, you fell

Now I chase to protect you.

 

You chased, I resisted

You chased, I accepted

You chased, I fell

Now I pray you’re not too late.

After finally winning the heart of the woman I loved, there was no way in hell he was taking her from me.

“How was the omelet?”

Meagan’s head snapped up as she glared at me. I placed my hand on the back of the chair and stood there while her eyes quickly did a once over. I didn’t normally work on Saturdays, but I’d been working all night with Derrick on a case. I knew with the weather being unseasonably warm, Meagan would be here this morning, so I decided to end this silent treatment of hers once and for all.

She swallowed hard and then straightened her shoulders as she narrowed her eyes at me. “How did you know I was here?”

I pulled the chair out and sat down as I loosened my tie. Meagan’s eyes flickered for one moment as I pictured her dirty little mind going into a fantasy.

“I’m a detective, Meg. It’s my job to know things.”

She let out a curt laugh and rolled her eyes. “I’d hope you were tracking down the bad people and not what I’ve had for breakfast.” Her mouth dropped open and she tapped her finger on the side of her mouth. “Oh wait. You’re sleeping with one of them, so …”

Her voice cut off as she looked away. What in the fuck did that mean?

“Excuse me?” I asked as I leaned closer to her.

“Never mind.”

Kam walked up and set a black coffee down in front of me along with a piece of banana nut bread. “There ya go, Gray.” Turning to Meagan, she smiled. “Do you need anything else, sweetie?”

Meagan flashed her that beautiful smile of hers and shook her head. “Oh wait! The check please. I’m being chased away.”

“Put it on my tab, Kam,” I said as I continued to watch Meagan.

She flashed me a dirty look and gathered up her things. I knew from following her, she normally sat here for a few hours and read as she people-watched. She’d leave Kam a more than generous tip for taking up a table all morning, and then she headed to her office.

“I can buy my own breakfast.”

With a nod, I said, “I know that.”

Meagan grunted as she stood. Her next stop would be her office. She worked for a non-profit organization called Helping Hands. Meagan worked as a counselor to middle and high school kids dealing with issues like bullying. I’d never seen anyone so passionate about their job. From the little I gathered from Grace, Meagan had a hell of a time in college dealing with bullying of her own.

“Why don’t you spend the day with me, Meg?”

With raised eyebrows, she smirked. “What’s wrong, Claire busy today so you’re going for your backup?”

My body jerked as if someone had slapped me. “I’m sorry for taking that call. I didn’t know it was her.”

Something passed over Meagan’s face. “It doesn’t matter. It’s over and done with.”

I stood and reached for her arm. “Spend the day with me … as friends.”

Meagan lifted her eyebrow. “Friends?”

“Yes.”

“What are you playing at, Gray?”

With a puzzled look, I flashed her the smile I knew she loved. Her breath would hitch every time.

Meagan sucked in a breath as she quickly licked her lips. Bingo.

“Why do you think I’m up to something? You think all I care about is fucking you; I want to show you that’s not true. I want to show you how much I enjoy just hanging out with you.”

Meagan glanced around, worried someone had heard what I said. Turning her head back to me, she narrowed her eyes.

“What did you have in mind?”

I absolutely love everything that Kelly Elliott writes. Chasing You is the 5th book in Kelly’s Love Wanted In Texas series. This book tells the friends to lovers story of Meagan and Grayson. Kelly has a way of pulling you in from the very beginning and not letting go until the very end.

Meagan first meets Grayson at a club where he works as a stripper when she is Colorado with her girlfriends. She runs into him again months later and realizes that he is cousin to her friend Noah. These two have a strong attraction to one another and quickly become friends with benefits. They both love the easy relationship that they share.

Meagan is a victim of bullying all through college and can’t wait to get away from the girl that made her life a living hell. She moves to Colorado to work as a social worker to help kids that are victims of bullying. Grayson worked as a stripper to pay for his college and to help take care of his mom. He is now one of the youngest and best detectives in Colorado. Grayson wants more than a friends with benefits relationship with Meagan but she is afraid that Grayson will find someone better than her and leave her. Will these two ever be able to make a relationship work? Will Meagan be able to let go of her fear of abandonment? What will happen when someone from Meagan’s past comes back and tries to ruin her life again?

“Glancing between the soup and the beautiful girl sitting on my couch, I felt my chest tighten. I wasn’t falling in love with her, I was already in love with her.”

“Are you ready to fall?”
“Will you catch me, Gray?”

I loved the deep connection between Meagan and Grayson. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. I loved the emotional rollercoaster this book took me on. I loved all the unexpected twists and turns this story took. It was so fun catching up with the rest of the gang from this series. I can’t wait to see what Kelly is working on next!!

As fate would have it, he was ready to give a ‘relationship’ a try.

There were only two stipulations. One – we had to remain friends no matter what. And, two – sexually speaking, we had to play by his ‘rules’…

The first one came easy. The second?

Nothing could have prepared me.

SYNOPSIS

I had the perfect life.

The perfect husband. Colin Cassidy—the incredibly talented, extremely gorgeous, and unbelievably humble star NFL quarterback.

The perfect marriage. Our bond was unbreakable. His support unwavering.

The perfect career. As the recently-appointed executive director for the Boston chapter of Mending Hearts, a child abuse prevention and treatment program, my daily reward was helping to keep vulnerable, innocent children from being preyed upon and destroyed. It’s all I’d wanted to do since I was a teenager.

Perfect city. Perfect car. Perfect house with the perfect view.

From the outside looking in, it was impossible to find a single flaw in my life. I had it all. Everything I’d ever wanted.

But that kind of perfection came at a price. Demanded the ultimate sacrifice.

What happened when I discovered what I’d been missing all along? When I began to question if the lies were worth protecting?

What if suddenly the last thing I wanted was to be perfect?

About HE WILL BE MY RUIN:

The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her suspense debut with this sexy, heartpounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend’s death, a story pulsing with the “intense, hot, emotional” (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.

A woman who almost had it all . . .

On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation . . .

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

f97b4-excerpt_purple

Edging along the side of her bed—I actually have to turn and shimmy to fit—I move toward a stack of vintage wooden food crates that serve as a nightstand. A wave of nostalgia washes over me as my finger traces the heavy latches and handmade, chunky gunmetal-gray body of the antique box sitting next to the lamp. The day that I spied it in an antique store while shopping for Celine’s sixteenth birthday, it made me think of a medieval castle. The old man who sold it to me said it was actually an eighteenth-century lockbox.

Whatever it was, I knew Celine would love it.

I carry it over to the living room, where I can sit and open it up. Inside are sentimental scraps of Celine’s life. Concert stubs and random papers, a dried rose, her grandmother’s rosary that Rosa gave to her. Rosa is supremely religious, and Celine, the ever-devoted daughter, kept up appearances for her mother, though she admitted to me that she didn’t find value in it.

I pull each item out, laying them on the trunk coffee table until I’m left with nothing but the smooth velvet floor of the box. I fumble with a small detail on the outside that acts as a lever—remembering my surprise when the man revealed the box’s secret—until a click sounds, allowing me to pry open the false bottom.

Celine’s shy, secretive eyes lit up when I first showed her the sizeable compartment. It was perfect for hiding treasures, like notes from boys, and the silver bracelet that her senior-year boyfriend bought her for Valentine’s Day and she was afraid to wear in front of Rosa. While I love Rosa dearly, she could be suffocating sometimes.

My fingers wrap around the wad of money filling the small space as a deep frown creases my forehead. Mostly hundreds but plenty of fifties, too. I quickly count it. There’s almost ten thousand dollars here.

Why wouldn’t Celine deposit this into her bank account?

I pick up the ornate bronze key and a creased sheet of paper that also sits within. I’m guessing the key is for the desk. I’ll test that out in a minute. I gingerly unfold the paper that’s obviously been handled many times, judging by the crinkles in it.

My eyes widen.

A naked man fills one side. He’s entrancingly handsome, with long lashes and golden-blond tousled hair and a shadow of peach scruff covering his hard jawline. He’s lying on his back, one muscular arm disappearing into the pillow beneath his head, a white sheet tangled around his legs, not quite covering the goods, which from what I can see, are fairly impressive. I can’t tell what color his eyes are because he’s fast asleep.

“Well then . . .” I frown, taken aback.

I’m not surprised that Celine could attract the attention of a guy like this. She was a gorgeous young woman—her Mexican roots earning her lush locks, full lips, and voluptuous curves tied to the kind of tiny waist that all men seem to admire.

Nor am I surprised that he’s blond. It has always been a running joke between us, her penchant for blonds. She’s never dated anything but.

But I am surprised that she’d have the nerve to take—and print out to keep by her bed—a scandalous picture like this in the first place.

I wonder if she ever mentioned him to me. She always told me about her dates, utter failures or otherwise. Though it’s been years since she was seeing anyone seriously, and she was definitely seeing this guy seriously if she was sleeping with him. Celine usually waited months before she gave that up to a guy. She didn’t even lose her virginity until she was twenty-two, to a guy she had been dating for six months and hoped that she would one day marry. Who broke up with her shortly afterward.

So who the hell is this guy and why didn’t I ever hear about him? And where is he now? When were they together last?

Does he know that she’s dead?

Worrying my bottom lip between my teeth—it’s a bad habit of mine—I slowly fold the paper back up. Celine’s cursive scrawl decorates the back side in purple ink. Words I hadn’t noticed before.

Words that make my heart stop now.

This man was once my salvation. Now he will be my ruin.

ALP SarahLReview Owl

 

I love everything that K.A Tucker writes. I was so excited when I received an early copy to review. He Will Be My Ruin is a standalone novel with lots of mystery and suspense.

Maggie and Celine have been friends for many years even though they come from two different worlds. When Maggie finds out about Celine’s passing she puts her work on hold to fly to New York to take care of Celine’s estate. While she is there going through her friends stuff she starts to question what really happened to her best friend. Some of the things she finds in Celine’s belongings don’t add up so Maggie decides to do some investigating. She tries talking to the policeman that was at the scene but he isn’t any help but her does give her the name of a P.I. that offers to help Maggie for the right amount of money. Maggie starts to question everything she has learned about the people in Celine’s life and is regretting some of the things she has done along the way just to get the answers she so desperately wants. Celine had two men in her life that seemed like really good guys but the more time Maggie spends with them the more their true colors shine through. Will she ever figure out what really happened to her friend?

I loved Maggie’s character in this book. She was very determined to do right by her friend and was willing to do whatever it took to find out the truth. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. I loved the twists and turns this story took and found myself not able to turn the pages fast enough. I can’t wait to see what K.A. is working on next!!

a1589-event2bbanners-synopsis

Is it too much to believe that someone keeps returning to your life because it’s meant to be?

Zane Carson is an idealistic young man with one big skeleton in his closet when he first meets Jennifer Manders in college. They date only to break up soon after. The sexual attraction is like an electromagnet but they fight like alley cats. The relationship just isn’t worth it.

Zane’s band Fully Automatic breaks big about the same time Jennifer finishes college. One summer afternoon, they meet for coffee and sparks fly once more. It’s off again, on again, but they just can’t make it work and break it off for good, deciding it’s not worth the effort.

But Zane is drawn to her and, during a break in the music action, he tracks her down again, willing to change himself for her and needing to give her one last try. The attraction is as strong as ever, but now Jennifer is hiding something from Zane—something big, something that threatens to extinguish the spark for good. When Zane discovers her secret, will he be able to forgive her or will that be the end?

9c146-event2bbanners-excerpt

“Oh, Zane, this place is amazing. Why haven’t I ever heard of it before?”

“I can tell you exactly why. Three reasons.” She raised her eyebrows as he raised his index finger. “One, it’s almost downtown, and I know you avoid downtown like the plague. If I recall, you said something about rather losing a limb than walk the Sixteenth Street Mall again.”

“I said that?”

“Yeah.”

“Well…maybe that was a little drastic.”

“Yeah, probably.” He lifted the bottle of Dos Equis and then said, “Two, it’s a little hole in the wall. It doesn’t advertise like some of the bigger restaurants—no billboards, no newspaper ads, shit like that.”

Jennifer nodded. “Okay, yeah. And what’s number three?”

Zane leaned over the table and whispered. “It’s kind of a dive.” Jennifer couldn’t help but giggle. “But in a good way.”

She laughed out loud at that. “Yeah, definitely.” She picked up a chip and dipped it in the warm queso next to Zane’s bottle. “The food is amazing so far.”

“Just wait.”

The waiter came by with a pitcher. “More water, señorita?”

“Please.” After the waiter was back on his way, she said to Zane, “I love it. I love the people and I even love that stupid TV in the corner.”

Zane glanced over. “Yeah, well…”

“No, seriously. They don’t have the sound on, but it somehow makes it feel like home in here, you know? Lights and movement, but the sounds are coming from the kitchen and some weird soundtrack.”

Zane breathed through his nose, putting on a look of mock horror and said, “What if it’s our soundtrack?”

“What do you mean?”

“What if this is our movie? A movie about our lives…and that’s the soundtrack?”

“Three things.”

Zane grinned. “What?”

“One…if this is our movie, it’s pretty damn boring. No car chases, no sex scenes, no snappy dialogue—”

“Says who? My dialogue’s plenty snappy.”

“Two, the soundtrack sucks.”

“Well, don’t be telling them that.”

“And…I don’t have a three. I guess just two.”

A smirk covered Zane’s face. “And we can take care of the sex scene later.”

ALP SarahLReview Owl

I absolutely love the Bullet series by Jade C. Jamison. Locked and Loaded is the 6th and final book of this series. This book tells the story of Zane, the bassist for Fully Automatic.

Zane and Jennifer met in college and had an on and off relationship. They had deep feelings for each other but always ended up fighting so they eventually broke things off when Zane quit college to tour with the band. Zane had a rough childhood and is now an addict and his demons have taken over. He sleeps with lots of women and takes whatever drugs he can get ahold of to drown out the pain of his past. He eventually hits rock bottom and put himself into rehab. When he gets out he decides to try get in contact with Jennifer. Will he be able to convince her to give him another shot at a relationship or will she have already moved on with her life?

Jennifer has always loved Zane and she struggled when they broke things off and he quit college to go tour with the band. She moved on with her life and tried dating other guys but none of them were like Zane. She is surprised to hear from Zane after having no contact with him for 2 years. She agrees to go on a date with him and just when she thinks he has changed he ends up screwing things up. He promises her it won’t happen again but Jennifer doesn’t believe him so she gives him an ultimatum-go to rehab and get clean or stay out of her life. Zane struggles with believing that he will ever be able to overcome his demons. He finds a good therapist through his best friend Ethan and after time he learns how to fight the many addictions that he struggles with. Will Jennifer be happy with his progress and let Zane back into her life or will she have a hard time trusting that he is trying to better himself?

I loved the deep connection between Zane and Jennifer. It was fun catching up with the rest of the band members and their families. I do feel like the story was a little rushed and would have liked to see more depth to the storyline. I am very sad that this is the end of the Bullet series as I absolutely love these characters and will always wonder what they are up to. 

**PRAISE FOR LOCKED AND LOADED**

“AND she’s back! Who might you ask? Well of course I am talking about the hard rocking Queen herself…Jade Jamison and her fascinating, complex Fully Automatic cast of characters and in particular Zane, the quietly messed up bass player who lives his life on the edge and crosses the line one too many times before he falls from the cliff….

A lot of twists and a few surprises (some more expected than others) make this sixth book in the Bullet series a wonderful comeback for Jamison…after all the zombies, girl rockers and girl reporters of her other projects, I was very happy she went back to the series I first fell in love with and did an amazing job. Highly recommend if you have read and loved all the boys in Fully Automatic.” ~ Sue Banner, top Amazon reviewer

“When I finished this book my heart was so sad. Sad not at the book but sad that this was it. This was the end of the line for the Bullet guys. This was the end of a series that I have grown to love and looked forward to reading for years…” ~ Angie J, Twinsie Talk Book Blog, http://www.twinsietalk.com

Release Day Blitz-Beautiful Burn by Jamie McGuire

Beautiful Burn Banner

We are celebrating the release of Beautiful Burn by Author Jamie McGuire!

Beautiful Burn Official Cover

BB Synopsis Release

Fresh out of college, Ellison Edson has fallen through the cracks of rock bottom. While staying in her family’s vacation home in Colorado, her behavior has finally gained the attention of her parents—but not in the way she hoped. Cut off from the millions she’s always taken for granted, and left alone to fend for herself, Ellie spirals further out of control, making a mistake she can’t take back.

Like his twin brother Taylor, Tyler Maddox is a member of the Alpine Hotshots, fighting wildland fires on the frontline. As arrogant as he is charming, Tyler’s nomadic lifestyle makes it easy to contain his relationships to one night. When he meets Ellie at a local party during off-season, her extreme personality and dismissive attitude fascinates him at first, but as his feelings deepen, Tyler realizes that the crippling inner demons of the woman he loves might be the strongest enemy any Maddox has ever faced.
