GIVEAWAY & Review Tour ~ The Tattered Gloves by JL Berg

ttg-blogtour

ttg-amazonHead down.
Don’t look up.
Never make eye contact.

Those were the words I lived by growing up, the words that protected me in an unsafe home. But words are only letters and eventually even they couldn’t keep his hands off me.

Hoping to leave behind the shattered life of my past, I find myself in a boring, small town, with an aunt I’ve never met and at a school I loathe.

But soon I learn, not everything in this world is as black and white as I’ve determined. Sometimes those we are so quick to judge often need a second, third or even fourth time to make a first impression.

And often, there are friendships and even love waiting just around the corner, if we are brave enough to take the first step.

Am I brave? Or will I hide behind these tattered gloves of mine forever?

The Tattered Gloves had the potential to be a truly powerful and moving piece about the horrors that can befall a child in a home where there is little care for their well-being.  It could have been an inspiring message of hope and healing but it fell short of that, for me.

I am a big fan of the journey characters take within a book and if their growth and story arc is healing, the ending doesn’t necessarily have to be happily ever after, it just needs to be the thing that is best for the characters.  I didn’t quite get that from this book.  Everything ended up tied up in a nice little bow and I just didn’t quite feel like it was a realistic ending for the characters involved.  At about 2/3 of the way through the book, I had an inclination this was going to be the case, as there just wasn’t enough book left to properly resolve all of the things that were going on with the characters.  There was also a point where it where the aunt alluded to going through something similar to what Willow had and that ball was totally dropped in favor of a much less horrific back story.

It is because of the expectations I formed while reading this book that I was left wanting.  There was just so much potential to tell such an important story, a story bigger than a girl falling in love with a boy, and I wanted THAT story.  The story The Tattered Gloved ended up being was a lovely story, it held an important message and told of the dangers of judging people without getting to know them first.  It demonstrated, wonderfully, the differences of living in a home filled with love and acceptance to one filled with indifference and distrust.  While I had thought, this was going to be a gritty story about the worst things that can happen to a person with a dash of love and romance thrown in, it was actually more about the different types of love a person can experience and how important each of them are, with a dash of how the residual effects of past trauma color those relationships.

Letting The Tattered Gloves stand on its own, leaving all of my expectations and hopes for the story aside, it was a very touching story.  The relationships between each of the characters was wholly unique and beautiful.  I came to love each of them, for different reasons, and the all brought their own messages about love and life to the book.  It was well-written and help my attention, the words made me care deeply for the characters and their futures, the plot, while not as fleshed-out as I’d have preferred, was riveting.  For a person looking to dip their toe into deeper subject matter without going headlong into the darkest reaches of those subjects, this is an amazing place to start.

Raised by my four brothers, I’m the poster girl of a hot-mess. A sucker for cheating assholes and shitty friends.

It’s the reason I’ve come home.

The only reason!

I arrive to find the family business in shambles. My brothers have managed to run it into the ground. With new competition, the stakes are high, especially when I realize whose stealing all of the business out from under us.

Seeing him again isn’t the hard part.

I’m over Crane Lord, his cocky, dangerous sex appeal, his criminal ways of getting by, and how he used to own every part of me.

I can’t.

Shit!

EXCERPT

The driver pulls into the parking lot of my chosen location and spats off the amount I owe him. I pull out my ex’s bank card and wait. When he gives me a paper to sign, I tip him a hundred bucks. He graciously thanks me with his Russian accent, in which I return an easy smile and tell him it was my pleasure.
I’m spiteful and it feels so fucking good.
Revenge to me is like a fine aged wine is to a hoity-toity Stepford wife. It’s my happy place where I know I won’t be a victim of my stupidity.
My day is spent on a new tattoo; a piece representing the lying douchebag who doesn’t have a clue who he’s dealing with. It’s a giant cockroach with a vividly detailed Chuck Taylor slamming down on it. Underneath it states, ‘paybacks are a bitch and so am I’. Every single second of the needle penetrating my skin absolved the time and effort I’d put forth on another failed relationship. I’ve been around guys my whole life. He’s a dime a dozen. My only regret was getting serious in the first place. I should have learned a long time ago that you can’t count on anyone, at least not anyone I know.

I could write an awesome synopsis of All They Wanted. Tell you how you’re going to get more of Gunner and Ellie, Josh and Heather, and the oh-so-sexy Jeff and his outspoken bride, Ari, as they head out on a couples camping trip.

Never mind that both Ari and Heather are pregnant and moody. Or that Gunner forgot to bring the food … I mean really, Gunner? I could even tell you how Josh takes a tumble down a hill and—

Now you didn’t really think I was going to tell you what happens … did you?

I absolutely love everything that Kelly Elliott writes. I was so excited when she announced she was going to write a novella featuring the Wanted gang. It was so fun catching up with Ellie, Gunner, Jeff, Ari, Heather and Josh. The gang decides to go on a camping trip before Heather and Ari have their babies. Ari and Ellie have some fears that life will get busy soon and everyone will grow apart but this camping trip proves that their friendships will last forever no matter what happens in their lives.

I always loved how close these couples were and that they never let anything get between them. The camping trip starts out kind of rough but they try to make the best of it. They encounter some interesting situations during the trip and it keep me laughing the entire time. I love how Kelly also gives us a look into the future of the couples and their growing families. If you love the Wanted gang this is a definite must read novella!  I can’t wait to see what Kelly is working on next!!

5 Stars!!

GIVEAWAY & Blog Tour ~ Tempting Tristan by Melissa Foster ~ Sarah A’s Review

tempting-tristan-coverTempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, hot alphas.

Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and figure out where he keeps going wrong. He knows his biggest fault–he leads with his heart, not his head–and that’s never going to change. But after several introspective weeks, he’s beginning to get a handle on things. That is, until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar…

Alex has spent eight years in the Army, months in a hospital bed, and far too long hiding his sexual identity. He’s guilt-ridden, damaged, pissed off, and up for a Silver Star–for the incident that nearly cost him his life, and kept him from his grandmother’s funeral. But all he wants to do is forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn’t necessarily accept, and live the life he’s always dreamed of.

The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together the hotter the flames become. But the closer Tristan gets, the more Alex’s walls go up, and when the two walk onto a military base, Tristan finds out Alex’s physical scars aren’t the ones that run the deepest.

It’s not often that I read a book in a series, stand-alone or not, without first reading the other books; I did not do that with Tempting Tristan and never felt lost at all.  While reading Tempting Tristan did leave me with the desire to read books 1 &2, Catching Cassidy and Discovering Delilah, I didn’t feel like I was jumping into the middle of a partially finished story.

I am always a sucker for a good military romance, there is just something that pulls on my heartstrings about a man brave enough to risk it all in service to his country.  It doesn’t hurt that military men are usually struggling with the affect war had on them, watching them overcome the struggle with their inner demons.  Tempting Tristan nearly hit the nail on the head on all counts.  It was so close to being all of the things I crave.  It just didn’t quite have enough struggle for me.

Tempting Tristan was a very sweet M/M romance.  Not quite too sweet, but just on the border.  There were a few moments of pure angst, of the painful recovery I was hoping for, but they were quickly resolved.  It didn’t feel rushed, or unrealistic, my icy black heart just thrives on those painful moments more than it does the true love that was felt in every encounter that was had between Tristan and Alex.

I loved Tristan and Alex’s story, I really did.  It was deep and moving.  It was exceedingly clear that they were made for one another and perfectly filled any holes the other had.  Their love was beautiful and something that every person should strive for.  However, I wanted a little more conflict in their love story.  I know I am selfish, but the heart wanted what it wants.

Tempting Tristan was well told, it was obvious that Melissa Foster is in her element in the romance genre.  She was able to seamlessly transition from each stage of development in Tristan and Alex’s relationship as only a person who is well-versed and comfortable in their profession can do.

ALP Excerpt Owl

We step forward at the same time, and he presses his rough hand to my cheek. “I don’t know what kind of pussies you went out with before, but I wanted to fucking claim you in there.”

He slides a hand around my waist, tugging our bodies together. I feel every hard inch of him, and he’s got me so hot I’m sure we’re going to combust.

“I’ve spent almost nine years hiding who I am, and I’m not willing to do it anymore,” he says through clenched teeth. “Not here, where I came to start over. Where I came to live on my terms without the goddamn military hanging over my head.”

“I have no interest in hiding,” I assure him.

“You’re sure? Because I really want to kiss you right now, and I don’t care who sees us.”

I respond by pulling his mouth to mine, my break from men long forgotten. We stumble backward, crashing into the railing, fighting for dominance as we did yesterday morning. The passion between us has a life of its own. My hands claw over his ass, up his back. I want to strip him down and take all of him. I want to discover why he’s so rough and learn what about those shadows that are lurking behind his gorgeous eyes. Instead I take, and give, and take more of the angry kisses. When we finally tear our mouths apart, my body’s still reeling, and we both curse under our breaths.

“Okay?” he pants out.

I nod, knowing if I open my mouth, I want to fuck you, is going to come out.

ALPOwl Series

HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real series of stand-alone romances that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting–most of the time. This series is written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster with LGBT themes.

catching-cassidyWyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to spread his parents’ ashes and to try to figure out his next step.

Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands–but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home–even if her jealous boyfriend is giving her hell for it. But he doesn’t have anything to be jealous of…or does he?

It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.

discovering-delilahAfter the death of her parents on the day of her college graduation, Delilah Armstrong thought she could finally follow her heart and come out to her closest friends, but the guilt of going against her parents’ beliefs haunts her. The feelings she has for her best friend, Ashley, are stronger than anything she’s felt before, but Delilah has never even kissed a girl, and fear stops her at every turn.

Ashley Carver promised herself that she would never again date another girl who wasn’t out, but that was before she met intoxicatingly sweet and sexy Delilah.

When another girl offers to teach Delilah the ropes, it changes Delilah’s whole world and gives her the courage to go after the only girl she really wants. But coming out isn’t as easy as Delilah imagined, and moving past her parents’ death and the feelings of guilt she is left with is even harder. The intense passion between Ashley and Delilah is too strong to deny, but coming together means risking everything.

Discovering Delilah is an edgy, evocative, romantic story of friendship, family, and the courage to love.

Cover Reveal-The Playbook by Kelly Elliott

playbook_amazon

 

My life revolved around two things. Football and my cock. And not necessarily in that order.

Being the head football coach for a top university in Texas had its ups and its downs.

The ups? Endless women to f*ck.

The downs? The politics that came with the job.

From the moment Aubrey Cain walked into my office, she turned my world upside down. Being forced to have her follow me around for a month was going to be a pain in the ass. Especially since I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her.

The best I’d hoped to come out of this was a few nights with her in my bed. I never imagined she’d be the game changer.

Brett Owens was my assignment.

Head football coach for a top college, bad boy reputation, short temper, and handsome good looks should have scared me off. But I was tougher than that.

From the first words out of his obnoxious, dirty-talking mouth, I knew it was going to be a long month. It wasn’t five minutes after meeting him, he hit on me. If only I had known his blue eyes would haunt my dreams and awaken a desire inside of me I never knew existed.

This was business. There was no way I would be tempted by him no matter how good looking he was or how many things he whispered in my ear.

He was only supposed to be my assignment. Not the man who threatened to destroy both my heart and my career. I would follow along with his playbook for now. But who would end up winning was anyone’s guess.

The Playbook is a stand-alone novel.

Lauren took a drink and turned to Colt. “Let’s dance!”

Jumping up, she pulled him out to the dance floor as I chuckled and continued my people watching.

The song changed from a fast song to a slower one. Oh, it’s Dan and Shay. I love that group. Scanning the dance floor, my eyes came to a halt.

“Jase,” I whispered as I watched him dancing with some girl. All of sudden the lyrics to the song played loudly in my ears.

He wasn’t talking at all to her, but he held her close to him. “Bastard,” I said out loud as the guy standing next to me at the bar looked at me shocked.

“Oh shit, did I cut in front of you?”

Pulling my eyes off of Jase and the girl, I took in the sight in front of me.

Cowboy. Tight jeans, nice body, boots, and a smile that would knock any girl off her feet. Any girl … but me.

“Nope, sorry that wasn’t directed at you. The guy who asked me to dance is dancing with someone else.”

I pouted as he smiled bigger. Good lord … when did I learn how to flirt?

Reaching his hand out for mine, he winked and said, “His mistake just became my gain.”

With a flirty grin, I set my drink down and placed my hand in his and let him lead me to the dance floor. The last place Jase would ever expect me to be is a bar in Llano. I had to admit when Lauren mentioned this place, my heart began to race at the idea of maybe seeing Jase. I just hadn’t planned on seeing him with another girl.

Lucking out, the next song was another slow one. Spinning me around, the guy pulled me closer and asked, “What’s your name?”

“Taylor. Yours?”

“Brad.”

Oh yuck. Why did he have to have the same name as my dad? Crap.

“Nice to meet you … um … Brad.”

“Pleasure is all mine, Taylor. I can promise you that.”

Ugh. Men.

He pulled me closer and I was praying to God this guy had something in his pocket and it wasn’t what I thought it was poking my stomach.

Blah.

For a few seconds I totally forgot why I had agreed to dance with him. I quickly looked around until I spotted Jase. He looked miserable and somehow that comforted me.

Broken Love- Final Front- Digi CraftAva Moore was settling into her new life in Austin,Texas. She could almost be tempted to say it was perfect.

Perfect downtown apartment.

Perfect job as a fashion designer.

All of her dreams were coming true with the world at her fingertips.

That was until Ryder Montgomery appeared in her life. A chain of events lands Ava in the middle of his family’s Montana cattle ranch where she not only finds love, but a mysterious connection to Ryder’s sister when she stumbles upon her diary.

Will Ava have to give up the dreams she was building back in Texas to follow her heart? Or will she find dreams and a new life in Montana?

Broken Love is book 4 in the Broken series.

 

EXCERPT

Wrapping her arm with mine, my mother and I headed through the house and to the back. “Now, Ava, try to keep your very outspoken thoughts to yourself.”
My mouth fell open as I let out a gasp. “Oh my God. What do you think I’m going to do? Offend the little old consultant men, and then they won’t want to work for us?”
“Yes. That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.”
Liza bumped my shoulder as she rushed past me. “Don’t worry, Court, when she sees them she’ll be too busy wiping the drool from her mouth to even talk.”
I rolled my eyes and took off after Liza as she yelped and ran through the kitchen with me hot on her trail.
“This is not the first impression I’m talking about, Ava Moore!” my mother called out as I followed Liza out onto the back porch. Liza immediately took a right turn and I didn’t realize how fast I was going. Trying to come to a stop, I hit the stairs and ran down them only to run right into the back of someone, causing their drink to go everywhere.
“Shit!” I shouted as my head throbbed from slamming into what felt like a brick wall. As I put my fingers up to my temple and closed my eyes, I prayed the hangover would just go away.
“Ava?”
I know that voice.
Peeking one eye open, the other one quickly followed as I gasped and said, “Ryder?”
I quickly scanned around only to find everyone staring at both of us, and I couldn’t help but notice the stunned expression on my father’s face. “You know my daughter, Ryder?”
The smile that spread across Ryder’s face spoke volumes.
“Yes, sir, I do.”
I could feel all eyes on me as I let out a nervous chuckle. “Well, I mean we’re just acquaintances.”
Ryder raised his eyebrows as the other extremely hot guy standing next to him coughed and looked at Ryder.
“No, I mean we’re more than that.” Shaking my head and then moaning from the sheer pain, I held up my hands and said, “No! I mean, we’re just friends. New friends. Like I ran into him on the street and knocked all his paperwork out of his hands and then ran into him again—”
Oh Jesus, I’m digging myself into a hole.
“We ran into each other again yesterday when I was attending a meeting at a restaurant in Austin.”
The other guy coughed again and glared at Ryder.
My father walked up and kissed me on the cheek as he looked back at Ryder and said, “What a small world.”
It appeared Ryder had to force himself to pull his eyes off of me and as he looked at my father and nodded. “Indeed it is.”

“W-where are we going?” she asked as she glanced over her shoulder.

Opening the laundry room door, I pulled her in and pushed her against the wall.

“I need to feel you, Paislie … taste you.”

Each breath was forced as the rush grew bigger. I’d been waiting for so long for this moment.

My hand slid up her dress and moved softly along her thigh where I brushed my knuckles across the thin lace material. Son-of-a-bitch. My cock was throbbing I wanted her so badly.

My fingers pushed the material to the side as Paislie lifted her leg, allowing me better access.

I slipped two fingers in and moaned as my dick hardened painfully more. “Fucking hell. You’re soaking wet.”

Her head dropped back as she whispered, “Please. Malcolm, I’ve waited so long for you.”

My lips moved along her neck, placing soft kisses as I slowly moved my fingers in and out of her. Sliding another one in, I moved faster. “Yes,” she hissed as she pumped her hips. I didn’t want her coming yet. The first time she came, it was either going to be on my cock or my tongue.

Pulling my fingers from her, Paislie let out a whimper. I lifted her up and set her on the counter. It was going to kill my leg, but I needed to taste her.

“Lay back, Paislie. I want to taste you … now.”

Her eyes widened with delight as she smiled and laid back. I lifted her beautiful gown and moaned when I saw the garter and panties.

“Jesus, you’re perfect,” I moaned as I pushed her panties out of the way and licked up her pussy. Paislie gasped and grabbed onto my hair.

“Oh … dear … God,” she panted.

I’ve given plenty of women oral sex, but this was different. So very different. Paislie tasted sweet, addictive, like a drug. I instantly craved more as I licked and sucked her more. Her body quivered and I knew she was close. All I would need to do is concentrate on her clit and push my fingers in.

The knock on the door had us both freezing. Paislie lifted her head as we looked at one another. She shook her head and mouthed, Are you fucking kidding me?

I absolutely love everything that Kelly Elliott writes. Adrenaline is the second book in Kelly’s Speed series. This book can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading Ignite first to get a better understanding of the characters.

Malcolm Wallace loves living life in the fast lane. He is one of the top NASCAR drivers in the world and has a chance at becoming #1 since his rival has recently retired from racing. There is nothing more that he loves in life than being out on the racetrack. He lost his one true love in a car accident back in high school and now puts everything he has into his career. He doesn’t think he will ever find love again so he just sleeps with countless women night after night. One afternoon while getting ready for a race he runs into Paislie who is there to watch the race with her boyfriend. He is immediately attracted to her and will do whatever it takes to spend more time with her. After one date with her he feels a pull towards her that he has never felt before.  Will the demons of his past continue to push everyone away or will Malcolm finally be able to let go of the past and move on with his life?

 

” Look into my eyes, Paislie. I’ve never felt like this about anyone.”

“That shit was not in the cards for me. Never has been….never will.”

Paislie Pruitt has gone through lots of heartache in her young life. Her mother died when she was young and her dad left her at an orphanage when she was just 9 years old. She is afraid to get to close to anyone as she is afraid they will leave her just like her dad did. She keeps herself busy with word and avoids men. Her best friend convinces her to go out one night and this is where she meets Trey. She takes him back to her place and they spend a wild night together. They start casually dating and he invites her to go to a NASCAR race with him. While at the race she runs face first into Malcolm and is immediately attracted to him. She finds out that Trey has another girlfriend so she breaks up with him. She decides to take Malcolm up on his offer for a date and the sparks fly. She doesn’t want to get to close to Malcolm because of his history with women but she can’t deny her feelings for him either. Will Paislie’s past continue to haunt her or will she decide to give a relationship with Malcolm a try?

 

“I haven’t slept with many men, but more than I should have at my age. I often wonder if I’m even capable of loving someone. If I let my heart open up to them, I have a fear they’re going to leave me like my father did.”

I loved the connection between Malcolm and Paislie. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. I loved all the twists and turns this story took. I really enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster the book took me on. I can’t wait to see what Kelly is working on next.

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!!
