Ben Miller met the love of his life the day he crossed paths with Elle James in their high school cafeteria. New to Beaumont, he took a chance when he approached her. Their first encounter was everything his mother ever read to him about fairy tales. He saw the girl who would be his forever.

From the moment Elle James met Ben Miller they’ve been best friends. Everything they did, they did it together, from late night study sessions, family vacations, throwing bottles off the water tower, going to prom and finally moving to California for college.

However, after the almost tragic accident where she nearly lost her twin sister, Elle’s life hasn’t been the same, and neither has her relationship with Ben.

One fateful decision changes the scope of Ben and Elle’s relationship. For one, it means a new beginning. For the other, it means change.

The Last Resort Motel: Room Thirteen by D. Kelly

Release Date: April 12, 2018

 

Synopsis

 

Never in a million years did Sage Garcia think she would be spending her three-day weekend at The Last Resort Motel with the man she swore off years ago. If she hadn’t agreed to do a favor for her best friend Baxter, she would be enjoying her time off instead of being stuck up on a mountain with him.

After tricking Baxter into picking him up, Gabriel Ross is looking forward to a guys’ weekend. Besides, he can use all the help he can get while he runs the motel restaurant for the weekend. When he opens the door and finds Sage on the other side, he’s anything but disappointed. Too bad he can’t say the same about her. Sage still holds a grudge from a hookup years ago, but Gabe isn’t the boy he was back in the day and is looking forward to proving it to her.

With their chemistry burning hotter than ever, will Sage give in and let Gabe make amends? Or will she remain resentful while keeping her heart under lock and key?

Review by Susan:

This is a quick, sweet read, all though it’s a short story, it’s long enough to cover the important bits and doesn’t feel rushed. The story follows Sage and Gabriel, Sage is tricked into picking Gabriel up by her friend and Gabes cousin Baxter. Sage and Gabe have a rocky past, Sage still holds some resentment towards Gabe, but being in close quarters to him is bringing old feelings to the surface again. Can Sage let go of the past hurt and give Gabriel a second chance? You will have to read to find out! Another great read from this author.  4 Stars

THE HITCHHIKER

“You can run, but can you hide?”
Life was perfect.
I was on top of the world winning one case after the other leaving no survivors in the wake of my devastation. They may see a pair of long legs in Louboutin heels, but remember my name when I’m finished with them.
Caitlin Winslow, the best, cut-throat defense lawyer in California.
I never play to lose.
It’s not in my DNA.
The actions of ethics don’t exist in my domain.
Satan, my father, who shaped my life turns up dead. Kill shot to the back of the head in his sleep. The people who murdered him aren’t stopping with his death. They’re after me.
I ran in the dark of night. Karma that evil bitch meets me step by step and forced me to stick out my thumb on the side of the lonely highway. I’m now the HITCHHIKER begging for redemption.
Oh, how life has a funny way of smacking you in the face.
Katch Sterling storms into my life, and now I’m in his car.
Broody.
Dark.
All-man
My complete opposite.
Who would’ve thought my world would come full circle on that lonely highway with a hired killer…
BLANK CANVAS
I loved to draw and paint, throwing those spectacular colors across a blank canvas and turning it into something unique. Young, carefree, with the world in the palm of my hands. The options limitless.
My world ended the night the door creaked open. It was their first of many visits. Life as I knew it went blank. It became a survival game and counting my only solace to get through the pain.
It all became too much. I ran into the darkness of the night. That blank canvas long forgotten and incomplete. The ways of the streets became my new home. Drugs and sex my new survival. Until one night, it all went too far.
I was happy to know the pain would finally end; welcomed being murdered in a lonely alley. All of the weight on my shoulders and vicious memories would be forgotten once I took my final breath.
Life hates me, and I didn’t die. A second chance was handed to me, but what happens when I don’t want it?
This time, I have the chance to make my own art.
One person’s Blank Canvas is another’s Graffiti.
BRICK
My Sin. Her Redemption.
I’m the man your momma warns you about. The one you never want to meet in a dark alley.
I fight and protect me, mine, and my own. Take a bullet for anyone I love. No damn job is too gruesome for me.
And I’m the most loyal motherf*cker you’ll ever encounter.
I live on the wrong side of the law, and I’m damn proud of it. It’s rooted deep in my soul, stems from the scars of my past.
A pool of blood, a lifeless woman, and a missing child lead me into chaos, smack dab in the middle of it.
Why?
To protect what’s mine. Life has never had perfect timing. My sins and her redemptions are about to collide, leaving me changed forever.

Excerpt

MADDIE
“Who the
fuck invited you?” I snarl at Tyler. “And how the hell did you even find out
where I live?”
“I stopped
by Pete’s. Met Pete. Sweet guy, by the way. I would’ve imagined a strip club
owner as being kinda—”
“Pete told
you where I live?” Jesus. Thanks, Pete. Fuck.
“No, no,
not exactly.” Tyler’s standing way too close to me now. The girls are
pretending not to be able to hear him, but it’s clear they’re eavesdropping. I
hope they’re better at fucking guys for money than they are at spying.
Tyler leans
in closer still, and I really, really wish he would not do that. Because I hate
him and don’t want him anywhere near me. Or maybe because I can feel the heat
of his body and he kinda smells delicious. Which just pisses me off more
because I hate him.
He lowers
his voice and continues explaining how he found me. “Don’t be mad at Pete. He
didn’t want to tell me where you live. Seems like a really ethical guy.”
“Except he did tell you where I live.”
“Well,
yeah, but it cost me five grand.” My eyes go wide. “I mean, he’s ethical for,
y’know, a guy who runs a strip joint.”
 Nope. This is not going down like this. “Get.
Out.” I’m pointing at the door now.
“No!” Diane
whines. “No, no, no. We’re just getting to know him, Maddie! Oh, my God. This
guy. Where the hell have you been hiding him all these months?”
“Where have
I been hiding him?” I see red as I go to him, hands out, and slam them
into his chest. The force of my push makes him step back… half a step. Maybe.
“I wasn’t hiding him anywhere, you traitors! This asshole ducked out on me
years ago. And when I needed him, when I was begging him to—”  I shake my head to clear my mind. “And then he
shows back up and thinks everything’s gonna be fine just because we fucked a couple of times when I didn’t know it
was him!”
There’s a
beat before Annie says, “You fucked him?” with, like, way more excitement in
her voice than she should.
“Not the
point!” I shout as I slam my hands into his chest again.
But this
time, he grabs my wrist and stops me, saying, “Can we please talk?”
I struggle
in his grip, but he holds tight. I clench my teeth and spit, “Let go of
me.”
He does.
Immediately. Both hands up as if in surrender.
I decide to
change my strategy. Because clearly Tyler Morgan is being Tyler Morgan.
He attracts people to him like a siren song calling sailors to the rocks. He
knows how to play up the act he perfected long ago. Seemingly genuine,
charismatic, and fascinating as he leads the rest of us to our destruction.
So I pull
the friend card out and whirl around to face Annie, Diane, and Caroline. Taking
a deep breath, I say, “He’s not what you think,” in the calmest tone I can
muster. My voice is shaky. My hands are trembling with anger. But I hold it
together. “He ruined me,” I say. “He broke me into tiny pieces, dropped me to
the ground, and walked all over me.”
Annie just
stares at me, confused.
“What do
you mean?” Diane asks.
“He left
me, Diane. After Scotty died. He left me alone. He never came back. He never
even showed up for his funeral. I begged him,” I say, starting to cry. “I
begged him and he told me to stop. He just went on with his life like nothing
happened. Like my brother didn’t just die the most horrific death possible.
Like what we all meant to each other was meaningless. So I hope one of those
stories he told you about our childhood included that little fact. And
then…” I continue, drawing in a deep breath, willing the strength it takes to
get this last part in so I can twist that knife in his chest the way he did
mine. “And then he went off and made millions of dollars. Been living it up in
a goddamned penthouse, no cares at all. No worries at all. While I’ve been back
here…”
But I lose
it there. I can’t say the words selling myself.
Because I’ll die right now if I have to say that. I’ll die.
 There’s a filled beat while everyone stares at
Tyler, who never breaks eye contact with me. And I really wish he would.
Because his eyes are sad and hurt-looking and no fucking way will I fall for
that shit. No. Fucking. Way.
Caroline
mutters, “He’s a millionaire?”
Jesus
Christ.

Our Unscripted Story by L.A. Fiore

 

Title: Our Unscripted Story
Author: L.A. Fiore
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 29, 2018

 

Blurb
Greyson Ratcliffe. I met him at sixteen,
the hot new guy sitting on my jetty, an aspiring artist just passing through.
He was my first kiss and my first love. I wanted forever with him. I didn’t
even get a year.
Five years later, I’m a budding writer who scripts stories
of love and struggle, the good and the bad and the ups and the downs. He’s a
star on the rise; his wicked talent and crazy good looks have his face
plastered on countless magazines. We move in two different worlds and still our
paths cross again. We’re older and wiser and as crazy about each other as we
had been as teenagers.
My medium is words and my imagination is limitless, but not
even I could have written the incredible journey we traveled to reach our
happily-ever-after. Life isn’t like fiction, and the greatest love stories
don’t follow a script.

Review by Susan:

The first book I read by this author was on my list of best reads of 2017 so I had high hopes for this, it definitely does not disappoint!! I was hooked from the first page and spat out at the end! The story follows CIA agent Lucia Rizzo, her op is to find out who the navy seal mole is, the job is stateside so even better, what she isn’t expecting is to have to work with an ex Tony, or the sexy Gabe wilcox who turns her world upside down!

This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, there are loads of twists and turns that keep you turning the pages, just when you think you have it figured out, there’s another twist. The heat between rizzo and Gabe is seriously off the charts, it literally sizzles the pages. I loved the banter between Rizzo, Gabe and Tony, at times it has you laughing out loud. Rizzo is the perfect combination of sass, Witt, charm with a side of kick ass that keeps the boys in line!

This really is an incredible read that will have you on tender hooks and keep you guessing right till the end, the story and characters will stay with you long after you have finished reading and leave you with a huge book hangover! 5 Stars!

Author Bio
I live in Dallas but I am not a Texan by birth, I am a transplant from Tennessee and married a true Texan so I had to stay. We live in a older home in Dallas proper with our son and goldendoodle (who is roughly the size of a pony).
 
Writing isn’t my day job, however it is my joy and favorite hobby. I enjoy sending my friends new chapters nightly and hearing their reactions the next day. That is why I write, being published is just a bonus really. My real job is the same every day, but at night I get to be someone else and write about all these fun adventures and sexcapades:) When I’m writing you can find me on the couch, earbuds in and a full glass of wine beside me. Music inspires my stores, at the end of each book I list the playlist that helped me through writing the novel.
 
When I am not working or writing, I am reading. I go through about 3 books a week and I am 100% sure that I’m that annoying person at book-club that gets on to people when they are not keeping up with the monthly readings or suggest the movie is as good as a book (Sometimes I wish I could vote those people out of book-club like they do on Survivor. “The tribe has spoken”).
 
My favorite authors that inspire my writing are: Colleen Hoover, Sarah J. Maas, Sandra Brown, and Rainbow Rowell.

Excerpt:

“Iris?” August’s frown, the concern on his face, in his voice, remind me where I am. “Baby, you okay?”

I blink down at him dumbly, swallowing my tears, eating my memories whole and digesting a nightmare from long ago. I nod, my lips a cold, wobbly curve.

“Kiss me,” he whispers, his eyes so tender, so intent.

I remember a magical night under the stars, under a streetlight on the eve of greatness. A night filled with laughter and confidences, pregnant with promise. And I see him so clearly, my prince, asking for a kiss.

And I do.

I kiss him like the world might end tonight because I’ll never take this for granted. Not his kindness, when I’ve known cruelty all too well. Not his tenderness, when I’ve been handled roughly in the past. Not his love, when I’ve been possessed and owned and mistreated.

He thaws me with his kiss, my prince, and I melt into him. We’re chest to chest, with August’s number crushed between us. I take his cock in my hand, aligning our bodies, and two become one in a carnal slide of flesh. I anchor myself by my elbows hooked around his neck, and we kiss until I’m dizzy and our breaths tangle in a cloud of bliss. Under the jersey, his palm spans my back, digging into the naked flesh as our hips lock and roll and grind. My body clenches around him, and we pray, we curse, we moan, we mate like our bodies were made for this moment.

Ours is a love that reimagines—that peels back the sky at high noon searching for the stars, collecting them like shells in a bucket. We bathe in stardust, drink from the Milky Way, and dance on the moon. We pierce the firmament, peer into infinity, and tread on time and space. There is no before. There is no after. Now gives birth to forever. This moment may die, but this love never will. Time is not a line. It’s a circle, and we, August and Iris, we stand at the center.

“A STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND READ THIS NOW kind of book. Don’t hold your breath, this story will steal it from you.”

Review by Paula:

Ever read a book that you hope changes someone’s life? This is that book. I am Iris I felt her pain, her soul her heart beating while reading this book. I laughed I cried and even smiled and felt myself get even stronger knowing that I am a strong woman like Iris and nothing will change that. Yes this book has many talks about basketball and careers but it’s so much more. August is the sexy man on the cover with his good looks he’s more than that he’s a woman’s dream come true. Once you read the book I hope it changes your thoughts or truly makes you think about people around you daily. Long Shot is truly one book I’ll never forget. 5 stars definitely a 10 Star read and my top book of 2018
