Rocco Teaser 1




We didn’t speak as she walked towards me. She took a washcloth and held it under the water.

She raised it to my cheek, holding it over the graze. The control I had exerted inside for so long

gave way to an overwhelming desire for her. It had been two years that I had watched her grow

into a woman, two years of holding back, of knowing she wanted me and resisting her.

I closed my eyes and sighed. I turned and took a step towards her. I rested my forehead on hers

as she bunched my shirt in her hands. It wasn’t a conscious movement but my hand snaked

around her waist, gripping the t-shirt she was wearing. Her smell was intoxicating and my

senses spiralled out of control. I nuzzled into her neck; her warm skin met my lips. My tongue

trailed a path across her jawbone finding her mouth. She welcomed me in. As our kiss

deepened I walked her backwards, pressing her against the wall. I needed the wall for support.

And then I heard a small moan, a moan of pleasure.

“Fuck, fuck, fuck,” I said as I moved away from her.


ASHLEY'S 5 STAR REVIEW

I am in love with this series. As a reader who always wants to know MORE about the characters, Tracie Podger's character novellas are a brilliant addition to the Fallen Angels Series. 

We first met Rocco during Evelyn's story. A troubled young man forced to leave his village in Italy to live in America with Joe and family. We learn of his whole hearted dedication to his family, fiercely protecting those closest to him during a time of crisis. But his choices in protection do not come lightly or easily to this complicated but lovable man. 

While Rocco isn't a pivotal character to Robert & Brooke's story, he is the other half of Evelyn. Her story is essential to Robert's and ultimately Brooke's life. I fell in love with Rocco through Evelyn's eyes and my heart continued to break for this couple as we saw that same love radiating from Rocco. 

Rocco, a love story and journey into the past that is not to be missed.

Cover Reveal!




To The Steadfast
by Briana Gaitan
Genre: Coming of Age Romance
Cover Artist: Romantic Book Affairs
Release Date: August 31st 2015


Resolute. Firm. Unwavering
That was my love for him.

Steadfast for as long as I can remember.

As my best friend's brother, he ignored me before noticing me. He protected me, bought me my first beer, but eventually became my undoing. 


There was a time I would have died to get him to notice me, now I'd do anything to forget him. 

I'm not the one who can tame him, and he's not the guy who will change for me.

This isn't a story about falling in love, this is a story about falling out of love.

Unrequited love. 

And finding the strength to stand up for myself.

Here's to the steadfast.


*This is an standalone story that crosses years from YA into NA genre, due to HEAVY subject matter this book is for ages 16 and up. This is not your typical love story.*

Excerpt:

We don?t have drinks this time so instead I raise my hand
for a majestic fist bump. I'm not sure what to wish/salute to this time. Over
the weeks, we've gone through everything. Well, almost everything.
"To love," I say, knocking my knuckles against his.
"To infatuation," he corrects, fist bumping me again.
"No, to the steadfast."

Our eyes connect. Both of us realizing how cruel life can
be, how tempting it is to get swept away in the people that pay attention to us.

About Bound by Lies

Torn between two men; one was what I needed; the other was what I wanted.

One man was safe and the other was dangerous.

But both men would lay down their lives to save me.

ATF agent Sam Cortez is fighting to bring down the Estrada family empire, which was built on murder

and corruption.

Alex Estrada did what was needed to keep me safe…and paid with his life.

Starting over as I try to rebuild my life, it’s clear that the past is never what it seems.

What no one knew was that we were all bound by lies.

Add on Goodreads



Ashley's 4 Star Review:
What an emotional rollercoaster!! Emilia, Alex, and Sam are put through the worst circumstances and Emilia is caught in the middle. But while Emilia's head may by confused, her heart knows she belongs to Alex. 

I cried along with Emilia during many of the scenes in this book. It was heart-wrenching at times, but every word was powerful in telling the rest of Emilia's story. We see her much stronger and becoming her own person despite dealing with more tragedies. 

If you enjoyed Broken by Lies, or was even on the fence about it, I suggest you pick up this book and find out where Emilia ends up in life. The emotional journey is very worthy of your time. 

I'm looking forward to more from Rebecca Shea!

Maya Banks ~ Safe at Last is Live




Safe at Last is a thrilling and unforgettable story of separated lovers fighting against the odds to reunite. Safe at Last follows Devereaux Security Services employee and reader favorite Zack Covington and his long-lost love, Anna-Grace, a beautiful and talented girl with mind-reading abilities who went missing twelve years ago. Zack knows two things to be true: that he will never give up hope in finding his Gracie and that working with DSS means always expecting the unexpected to occur.
When a security job for a local art gallery reveals his missing Gracie is very much alive and an up-and-coming artist, Zack is overjoyed, but the broken soul he finds is far from the compassionate woman he remembers. Gracie is a survivor who falsely believes Zack betrayed her beyond forgiveness during an incident that left her without her psychic gift. With the enemies of DSS on their heels, Zack embarks on his most difficult mission yet: to earn back Gracie’s trust and to rekindle her love. 


Ashley's Review:
~3.5 STARS~ Told mostly in narrative form and story is repetitive. 

I really enjoyed the overall story in Safe at Last. But I was disappointed in the repetitiveness of the character's thoughts. I felt like I need to prompt the characters to keep going, we know that already. I was equally disappointed in the amount of narrative and lack of dialogue. I love to be in a characters head, but felt it was excessive in this novel. 

I have read other books by Maya Banks and love her work. This will not deter me from picking up future books by this author. This one just didn't work for me.

Excerpt,Two Releases and an Early Release....OH MY!!!


MANWHORE + 1  by Katy Evans
EXCERPT
FOUR WEEKS
I’ve never been so hopeful as when I board the pristine glass elevator at the M4 corporate building. A handful of employees ride along with me, murmuring perfunctory greetings to each other and to me. I think my mouth must be on vacation because I can’t seem to force it to speak. But I smile in reply—my smile nervous, nervous but hopeful, definitely hopeful. My riding companions step out on their floors one by one until I’m alone, riding up to the executive floor on my own.
Toward him.
          Toward the man I love.
          My body is raging. My blood is pumping—my blood is storming—my thighs are shaking. My stomach feels filled with little earthquakes that just won’t quit, then they turn into a full-fledged roil when I hear the elevator ting at his floor.
         Stepping out, I’m in corporate nirvana, surrounded by sleek chrome and pristine glass, marble and limestone floors. But I hardly have eyes for anything except the tall and imposing frosted glass doors at the far end of the room.
          Framing those doors to each side is a pair of sleek designer desks, for a total of four.
          Behind these desks are four women in identical black-and-white suits, sitting behind their gleaming dark-oak desks, working quietly behind their flat-screen computers.
          One of them, the forty-year-old Catherine H. Ulysses—right hand of the man who owns every inch of this building—stops what she’s doing when she sees me. She arches her brow, then seems both tense and relieved as she lifts the receiver on her desk and murmurs my name into it.
          I. Am. Not. Breathing.
          But Catherine doesn’t miss a beat as she motions me toward the huge frosted doors—those intimidating doors—that lead into the lair of the most powerful man in Chicago.
          The human being with the most powerful effect on me.
          This is what I’ve been waiting for, for four weeks. This is what I wanted when I left a thousand messages on his phones and what I wanted when I wrote a thousand others that I left unsent. To see him.
          For him to want to see me.
          But as I force myself to step forward, I don’t even know if I’ll have the strength to stand before him and look him in the eye after what I did.
          I’m wracked so hard with nervousness and anticipation and hope—yes hope, small but bright, even as I shake like a leaf.
          Catherine holds the door open, and I struggle to hold my head high and walk into his office.
           Two steps inside I hear the swoosh of the glass door shutting behind me and my systems halt at the familiar sight of the most beautiful office I’ve ever been in.
          His office is all vast marble and chrome, twelve-foot ceilings, and endless floor-to-ceiling windows.
          And there he is. The center of its axis. The center of my world.
          He’s pacing by the window, speaking into a headset in a low, low voice—the kind he uses when he’s pissed. All I can make out are the words have to be dead to let her fall into his clutches …
          He hangs up, and as if he feels me in the room, he turns his head. His eyes flare when he sees me. His green eyes.
          His achingly familiar, beautiful green eyes.
          He inhales, very slowly, his chest expanding, his hands curling a little at his sides as he looks at me.
          I look back at him.
          Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint.
          I just walked into the eye of the most powerful storm of my life. No. Not a storm. A hurricane.
          Four weeks, I haven’t seen him. And he still looks exactly as I remember. Larger than life, and more irresistible than ever.
          His striking face is perfectly shaven today, and his sensual lips look so achingly full I can almost feel them against mine. Six-feet-plus of perfectly controlled male power stand before me, in a perfect black suit and a killer tie. He’s the very devil in Armani; strong-boned, square-jawed, gleaming dark hair and those penetrating eyes.
          He’s got the best eyes.
          They twinkle mercilessly when he teases me, and when he doesn’t tease me, they’re mysterious and unreadable, assessing and intelligent, keeping me guessing about his thoughts.
          But I had forgotten how cold those eyes used to be. Green arctic ice looks back at me now. Every fleck of ice in those eyes gleaming like diamond shards.
          He clenches his jaw and tosses the headset aside.
          He looks as approachable as a wall, his shoulders stretching his white shirt, which clings to his skin like a groupie. But I know he’s not a wall; I’ve never wanted to throw myself at a wall like this.
          He’s walking towards me. Every step he takes makes my heart pound as he moves with that quiet and confident own-the-world stride of his.

          He stops a few feet away and shoves his hands into his pants pockets; and he seems so big all of a sudden, and he smells so utterly good. I drop my eyes to his tie as the little candle of hope I walked in with starts to flicker with doubt.

I'm a stay-at-home mom with four young children and one extremely supportive husband. We've been married for over ten years and reside in Metro Detroit, Michigan.

I've dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams.

When I'm not running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my family, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I'm writing!

I love music and believe that books and music can't exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!
