Book Blurb:

A second chance romance.

What happens when you fall for the boy next door?

Bea Norwood had the market on normal.

Drama free life? Check.

A single-mother who doubled as her confidant and partner in crime? Check.

A neighbor and best friend she trusted more than anyone? Check.

But that was until the day her mother remarried. The day that changed everything.

When her best friend’s cousin, Liam Falcon, is sent to live with his aunt and uncle to clean up his act, Bea finds herself falling for the boy next door. With their hearts so infinitely entwined, Bea turns to Liam as her only escape from her new step-brother’s daily torment at home. Bea thought their love could conquer anything. But she was wrong. Love was for fools, and she was the biggest fool of them all. When Liam left Lakeport, he took her heart with him, shattering the organ to pieces.

Six years later, Liam takes a trip back to Lakeport to visit his family, and to see HER.

His first love.

The girl who holds his heart.

The same girl who shattered it six years ago without looking back.

Liam is hell-bent on seeing Bea again after six years, but what he finds tears his heart in half. Bea Norwood is a shell of the girl he fell in love with. Underneath the baggy clothes, and pale skin, he knows she’s still in there somewhere, he just needs to find her.

Liam will stop at nothing to win his girl back, but sometimes, ignorance is bliss, and Liam isn’t prepared for Bea’s truth.

Review by Paula:

I love second chance romance books and this one though is definitely one I’ll never forget. I’m emotionally drained. I’ve cried while reading books but this one I sobbed many times. My heart broke for Bea. I give props to the author she didn’t sugar coat a thing and people unfortunately go through this on a daily bases. The world needs to feel and hear the truth!  Bea is one beautiful, strong woman that I see myself in her because like her, my man saved me. Liam is everyone’s dream man he made me swoon and cry for all the love he has!  This book will show you anyone can move on and be happy. It’s up to you to want it! 5/5 stars

One error in judgment. That is all it took.

They say don’t mix business with pleasure, but I fell in love with the client and now I’ve lost her.

But I would do it all over again if it meant keeping her safe.

Now I’ll have to fight like hell to earn her trust again. If I don’t, it could cost both of us everything.

Review by Candy:

You’ll definitely enjoy the second half of Jax and Neela’s story. Nana has a way work her royalty series. Multiple points of view from different characters brings it all together. It does leave wanting more for sure. This is a cliffhanger though.
When the truth comes out will Neela forgive and understand? Jax knew it would happen the lies would come out but can he fix it before it’s too late?
Couldn’t put it down. Nana pulls you in and keeps you wanting. This series had many segments to it and all are must read in order. Start with the Cheeky Prince. I really can’t praise Nana enough with words besides she’s great! 4 stars

All I ever wanted was family. But one mistake cost me everything I’ve ever worked for.

To get it all back, I’ll have to return home and protect the most stubborn woman on the face of the planet. To do that effectively, I’ll need to go undercover as…a Manny.

I didn’t mean to fall for her or the kid. I really should have known better. When you get this close, it’s easy to get burned.

But I’ll do anything to protect them, even if it costs me everything…again.

Amazon: 
Goodreads:

 

One year. One year since Tex had lost Memphis. One year since his lover had been killed, and it had yet to get easier. Everyone kept telling him it would, it never did. There were times he thought about ending it all, and then he would feel something…hear something, making him change his mind. Actually, sometimes he thought he was losing it.
And today, he called in sick to work, unable to get out of bed until this afternoon. When he finally emerged, he only relocated to the living room after grabbing a full bottle of Southern Comfort, plopping down on the sofa. The very sofa he and Memphis picked out together. It had been their first major furniture decision when they decided to move in together. The moment the delivery men left, Tex and Memphis broke it in thoroughly, wearing themselves out.
Tex’s eyes looked around the room. It seemed so empty without Memphis, and he felt so lost without his lover. He’d been sitting here for hours? Minutes? It had to be some amount of time since the bottle was half gone and he was feeling a drunken morose engulfing him, and he could not stop the bitter question from leaving his lips, the very question he had been asking daily since losing his best friend, lover, other half…his everything. “Why? Why Memphis? Why did you have to go? Why did it have to be you and not me?”
Shaking his head, Tex sniffled and brought his glass filled with amber liquid to his lips. “When you left, it completely broke my heart…I’m still broken. I need to hear you say that you love me one more time. A million more times, but that won’t happen. Can’t happen.” He took another gulp, draining the glass before wiping his nose with the back of his hand.
More tears were falling, but he ignored them like he’d done every time they sprang up. It was easy to do after all this time; besides, they didn’t matter. Nothing mattered any longer and hadn’t for a year.
He sobbed again and then got angry. “I wish you could come back to fix me, fix what you destroyed when you left, but that’s a pipe dream. You got mad, said your piece, and then stormed out of here. If you had just waited…” Tex choked on his words.
Pouring himself another glassful of liquor, he breathed out as drops of saltwater fell on his coffee table. He should probably stop drinking and put himself to bed to finish wallowing there, but he couldn’t. It had been one year. One year since that fateful night…unlucky night more like it. One year since he’d heard Memphis’s voice, touched his body, and the loss Tex felt that night remained just as acute tonight as it did then. He thought time was supposed to heal the wounds, to lessen the pain…lies. All lies. “It’s my fault, Memphis. If I hadn’t been spiteful and allowed that monstrous bitch, jealousy, to cloud my judgment…if only. If only. I regretted everything, regretted that the last words I spoke to you were bitter and vile. I can’t forget you, can’t move on. I’m lonely without you, Memphis. It hurts so much that you aren’t here.” He wailed like a banshee, his cry full of sorrow and pain.
Tex downed the entire glass, hoping that the pain would deaden or that he would stop feeling anything. Maybe if he drank enough, he could join Memphis.
Review by Christine:
It’s hard to even come up with words to explain how much I loved and enjoyed Unbreak Me by Maria Vickers. Tex & Memphis’s story is a heartbreaking tale of love, loss and trying to regain life after losing your soulmate. I want to get into the storyline but then I don’t want to give away a single thing about the book because I loved the journey I was taken on. While reading this story all I could think about was how this story would translate to a play beautifully. Unbreak Me is one of my Top Reads of 2019, grab it today and fall for Tex and Memphis like I did!

Maria Vickers currently lives in St. Louis, MO with her pug, Spencer Tracy. She has always had a passion for writing and after she became disabled in 2010, she decided to use writing as her escape. She believes that life is about what you make of it. You have to live it to the fullest no matter the circumstances.

From a young age, she has always loved books and even dreamed of being an author when she was younger. Growing up in the Navy, she used to weave tales for her siblings and her friends about anything and everything. And when she wasn’t creating her own stories, she had a book in her hand. They transported her to another world. She hopes that with her books, her readers have the same experience and that they can relate to her characters.

Getting sick changed her life forever, but it also opened doors for her that she thought would always be out of reach.

The Machine by Stephanie Julian

The Machine by Stephanie Julian is available now!
He’s cool as ice and hot AF…

Amazon — https://amzn.to/2BKyaBA
Apple — https://apple.co/2NfzzEV
Nook — http://bit.ly/2TZW0jU
Kobo — http://bit.ly/2BLjDFP

He’s cool as ice and hot AF.

Jake Mozik has fought his way back from a possible career-ending injury and has returned to the Redtails focused and ready to reclaim his former glory as half of the best defensive duo in the league. But his attraction to the fierce Faith is unexpected and distracting.

Faith doesn’t usually fall for overly confident, uber sexy jocks. But when she does, apparently she falls pretty damn hard. Jake is so not her type. Or so she thinks. Until he shows up to volunteer at the alternative school where she works and she sees a different side of the normally cocky athlete. He’s kind and patient and— Damn it, she is not falling for this guy. She’s rebuilding her life after a near-fatal accident and there’s no room for a man.

Jake is determined to make room in Faith’s life. And once he sets his mind on something, he doesn’t let go until he gets what he wants. And he wants it all…

Review by Christine:

The Machine by Stephanie Julian is a sexy romance between two recovering from injuries. Jake, star defense-man for the Redtails, who suffered a possible career ending injury and Faith who was in a near-fatal car accident. I loved the slow burn romance these two took us, the reader, on. Faith and Jake took us on amazing journey of healing and falling for each other. My only issue is I found the story ended a little abrupt but overall The Machine was a great addition to Redtails series. 4 Stars

Skirt Steak by Vanessa Vale

 

 

Title: Skirt Steak
Series: Grade-A Beefcakes #5
Author: Vanessa Vale
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 4, 2019

 

Blurb

 

Julia Duke has watched her brothers fall in love, and it’s
her turn. But after a rude ex complained she was terrible between the sheets,
her confidence is shot. If she can’t please one man, how can she satisfy two?
She’s not looking for love, but one Friday night — love finds her.
Bennett and Cash take one look at the fiery redhead and
can’t resist seducing her into their arms. Nothing will stop them from making
her theirs. Not the a-hole ex boyfriend, and not a scandalous past that may
change the way she looks at one of them forever.
Now that Julia knows what it’s like to be loved by some
Grade-A Beefcake, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep her men, no
matter who she has to fight to get her happily-ever-after: the rumor-mill, the
law, her crazy ex, or herself.
Remember: With a Vanessa
Vale book, one cowboy is never enough. In this smokin’ hot series, each heroine
gets an extra helping (or two) of Grade-A Beefcake.

 

Review by Susan:

This is the fifth book in this series but can be read as a standalone, the couples from the previous books do make an appearance but you don’t have to know their stories to enjoy this book.

I’ve loved getting to know the Duke family and we finally get Julia’s story, it was worth the wait! Julia was full of self doubt so it was wonderful to see her meet her men and for them to to show her how wonderful she is and give her what she deserves. I loved how she meets them and her initial confusion over their identities had me laughing out loud! As with all the books in this series, it’s a short read but full of heat and steam that practically melts your kindle.

Although this is a quick read, the story flows well and doesn’t feel rushed, there’s a few twists and turns that keeps you turning the pages. I was fully invested in the three of them and was rooting for them all to have a happy ever after, another fabulous read from this amazing author.  5 Stars

Blurb:
It was the biggest day of my life.

I know most people say that about something joyous; a graduation, a wedding ceremony, the birth of their

first child. My situation was a little different.

Sure, it was my eighteenth birthday, but it was also the day that I was sold.

Sold to a man with hair like a crown of gold and eyes blacker than the darkest pits of Hell.

He bought me to own me, to control me, and to use me as a means to an end.

I was his tool and his weapon.

And through it all, somehow, I also became his salvation.

Review by Paula:

First of all the cover to this book is absolutely perfect! At 18 Cosima is sold for debt of her fathers to Alexander Thornton. Alexander is dark, intense man. I felt bad for Cosima but her strength is amazing. Slave to her Master light and darkness both need each other. But things might not be what they seem. Wow I truly enjoyed this book very intense! I couldn’t stop reading it and that ending just makes me can’t wait till May! 5 stars

 

 

Excerpt:
I was locked in the dark but it was more than an absence of light. It was the blackness of my own solitude, the quantum hole at the center of my soul that was slowly sucking away at everything that made me me.

I tried to write an encyclopedia of Cosima facts to cement my sense of self in the chaos of night that had become my life.

Cosima Ruth Lombardi.

Born August 2nd 1998 in Naploi, Italia to Caprice Maria Lombardi and Seamus Patrick Moore.

My favourite colour was wine red, captured in a glass and held over rich, warm candlelight.

I loved poppies best of all flowers because they reminded me of me in a way that was narcissistic but true. They were bold as blood, stark against the softer colours of the traditional Italian countryside. They demanded notice and received it. But their beauty was short-lived and fragile as the thin silk of their petals. They fell to bits within a week and scattered on the wind.

I felt very much like one of those black centered blooms, falling apart with every breath I took without even one witness to my dematerialization.

He wanted me like this.

Lost like decaying particles in a petri dish.

I didn’t have to hear his British accented voice clipping the words into neat little explanations to understand why.

He wanted me broken.

A beautiful, hollow shell to break open and f*ck into.
