Add to Good Reads

Life changes in the span of a heartbeat. One, tiny heartbeat. 

Blake and Layla have lived through disappointment and regret, only finally finding relief with the powerful love they have for each other. A love they intend to fight to keep. 

They’ve had to forgive each other, but can they truly move forward without facing the pain of the past?

Layla’s been avoiding the phone calls. Nine months pregnant and exhausted, she doesn’t want the complication. But she can’t run from the truth. Whoever’s calling was there eighteen years ago. Unlike her, he remembers the night that changed the course of her life, and he’s ready to talk. 

Blake’s preoccupied with an email, a few simple sentences sent through cyberspace that have the capability to rob him of his sanity, his freedom, and the people he loves most in the world. When he’s called home for a mysterious reason, leaving Layla isn’t ideal, but hope for reconciliation combined with his brother’s secrecy ignites a curiosity he refuses to ignore. 

Putting the pain behind them is no longer an option.

To get the answers they need, they must face the past and open up old wounds that threaten to bleed them dry.

Club Prive: French Connection Vol. III by M.S. Parker

I totally enjoyed this entire series...  The twists and turns though out every book kept you on the edge of your seat.  I am so in love with the way Ms. Parker tells a story.  I do not want to give anything away, but I love a good happy ending, even if it is not the one you expect while reading the whole story.  The character development in this series was awesome... Carrie went from shy in the background girl to strong, sexy and confident.  Gavin also went through a lot of change, and it was so great to see them grow together.

Title: Parker Sibling Series Box Set
Author: Leigh Ann Lunsford
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 19, 2014


Not Enough
Brielle Parker has her life in front of her; she just does not know how to live it. After years of not being enough for her parents, or the dreams she once had, how did one man, Colby James show her she was actually more than enough? Raised by her grandparents with her three siblings, Brielle was loved, no doubt. However, her grandparents were taken too soon, and she was left with her older sibling to try and raise her younger ones. She couldn't help but let the doubts take over her life. Would she ever be enough? Then Colby walked in and changed everything, and just when she was facing her fears and falling in love for the first time, Colby ripped her heart out. Will they be able to get past their mistakes to live the life they both want? Did Colby finally break Brielle when all he wanted to do was protect and love her? You can rebound from some mistakes, but some you just have to learn from and walk away. The love they have is true and pure, but will they finally be enough for each other

Not Leaving
Addison Parker has loved one boy all her life, Tyler James. She met him the first day of school after moving to Tennessee to live with her grandparents. Through death, raising her younger siblings, betrayal, and heartbreak, he has been there. She has forgiven him for many things, but this time when he leaves, she decides he is not her future anymore. Tyler James loves Addison Parker. He has made mistakes, but his love is always constant. He wants to be with her, but through lies and misunderstandings it doesn’t seem possible anymore. When a single moment changes his future, will he be able to come back and pick up the pieces of their relationship, or did he finally break all of her faith in him? 

Not Hiding
Cambree Parker has finally flown the nest and headed off to college in a different state, truly alone for the first time. Trying to escape from her sisters shadows, she runs from the lies and deceit that have plagued her family for years, and from the boy who stole her heart and shredded it in the process. Once there, she realizes her freedom is not all she hoped it would be. She misses her family, thinks of Max daily, and when she decides she wants to take control, she is attacked, leaving her family to fear for their safety. Can she protect her heart and remain safe when the source of her heartache has taken up permanent residence by her side? Max Baird knew he messed up. His guilt over Cambree being attacked makes him doubt if he is good enough for her. He just knows he can’t walk away. She has told him she hates the lies, but the one he is keeping can blow her family apart, and he doesn’t know if she will ever forgive him. He has seen his share of sorrow and heartbreak, but he refuses to allow Cambree to suffer at his hands anymore. He will prove to her they can work. Hopefully he isn’t too late. 

Not Over
Dustin Parker had life and love in his grasp until the moment she disappeared without a good-bye. He has watched his sisters struggle, fall in love, and find a happily ever after. He thought it was his turn, but fate had other plans. Leaving the family again, this time to attend school across the country, he will play soccer, and try to keep her off his mind. All of a sudden in walks someone to occupy his bed but not his heart. Why is he promising her forever? Teryn Hall has suffered years of abuse, held a prisoner in her home by the one man who should have nurtured and loved her. Her scars run deep, and when her pain bubbles to the surface she can’t control the memories and the anguish. She thought she was doing the right thing when she walked away. She thought he would wait for her. Didn’t he promise her forever? Right when she thinks things are back on track, the news of Dustin moving on could derail her. Can love really survive anything?

Fan Girl Focus - Kendall Grey

So, each of us has those authors that we totally fan-girl over.  One of mine is Kendall Grey.  The Hard Rock Harlots is one of my all time fave series.  I wrote a review of another of her books (Hot-Blooded totally kicks ass, go read it!) and completely lost my shit when she quoted my review in a Facebook post.  Seriously.  I screencapped the shit out of it and once I changed my pants <wink>, I posted the squee-worthy moment to my own FB.  Don't believe me?

I'm not quite sure how I am going to keep from ending up a drooling incoherent mess when I actually share air with KG in the spring.  If I can speak at all, I'm picturing a scene like the Saturday Night Live sketch with Chris Farley and Paul McCartney.
Now that I've created this meme, it will no doubt run through my head when I meet KG.
I have never been to an author event - I will be attending my first in early 2015, where another few Fan Girl Faves (and possible future post subjects) will be in attendance. Fellow ECBC Patti and I are going to try to keep each other's Fan Girl reactions in check.  Maybe by the time that weekend is over, I'll be able to act relatively normal in mixed company (fingers crossed) so that I won't be the recipient of a restraining order from KG come May (fingers AND toes crossed). 

I'm not sure how Patti is with "celebrity" encounters, but I have a history of falling completely silent and staring slack-jawed while trying not to blatantly stare.  

Or turning into Captain Obvious, usually by telling the famous person "hey, you're (famous person's name)", y'know, just in case they weren't sure.  

The last person I did that to was an NFL football player who very graciously smiled, and said "Yes, I am" before putting his finger to his lips - I'm assuming it was to keep his presence a secret, but in hindsight, I suppose it could've been that he wanted to hush my crazy.

Deadly Fallout (Red Stone Security Series Bk 10) by Katie Reus

I have loved Red Stone since book #1, and now we are up to book #10, hard to believe.  I love how Katie keeps bringing it with new characters and awesome story lines with classic Katie Reus twists and turns.  Could not put this down until I was finished, even though I should have been working!

Zoe is forced to leave her job in the hospital due to the stalker and the ruined reputation that he has created of her.  After six months of easy breathing, he returns and goes straight to Zoe to let her know that he still wants her.  When the stalker ends up dead in the first chapter, I could not imagine how this was going to work.  Well, I should never second-guess Katie Reus and her dynamic writing skills.  Twists around every corner, turns that you could not imagine and, of course, hot chemistry between Zoe and Sawyer keep the pages turning until you are at the end before realizing you are there. 

Sawyer has been hot for Zoe for some time, but never acted on his feelings because of her brother Vincent and the personal conflict that they have.  But as soon as they lay eyes on each other, the sparks fly in only the way that Katie can make them fly.  With his need to protect Zoe from what is going on, he puts his new job on hold and falls hard and fast for this beautiful doctor, who in turn is falling just as hard and fast. 

Being the 10th book in this series, I am strongly hoping that Katie continues this series.  It Rocks!!!  If I could I would give it 10 stars!!

Hunter Reborn by Katie Reus

Another great read from Katie Reus.  Never let down when her name is on the by line.  In this the 5th book of the Moon Shifter series, we finally get the goods on the sexy as hell Aiden.  As the pack heads out to find the source of the vampire blood trafficking, Aiden is thrust back into the feelings of the bond-mate he lost 60 years ago.  When he realizes that she has no memory of him except for that she was told he eliminated her family, he needs to prove that his love and their bond will survive all.

Larissa was awakened by a not so ‘good’ witch after being in stasis for 60 years to a world that is totally unlike the one she remembers, from cell phones, to clothes and the way people act around her.  She is to put it mildly in shock and in fear of being with Aiden even though she feels the bond and knows that she should trust him, she does not remember him.
Throughout the story, memories are revealed, darkness is brought upon the pack and the couple as the evil behind the death of Larissa’s parents and the reason she is really awakened is revealed.  My favorite parts are the weird blood drinking crap, but hey that is why I love Katie, she gets me! (that part in the cave under the house was the best) LOL 

We also get a glimpse into Ryan and Theresa’s story, which I am hoping in the next editions we get the full scoop.  This book, like the rest kept me turning the pages with eagerness to find out what will happen next and if Aiden and Larissa will make it to their Happy Ever After!…. You will have to read it to find out!
