Something is terribly wrong. I can feel it. My stomach is restricting, contracting. “Oh God.” My hands clutch my stomach. Excruciating pain progresses from
my lower abdomen.

“Clove.” That grating voice reaches my ears from across the room.

“Stay the hell away from me.” His bare feet appear in my line of vision. His jean clad legs bend landing him on his hands and knees in front of me.
“Please,” My voice wobbly. I’m petrified. I don’t know what’s happening or why. An unsettling feeling begins to well inside of me, clamping my eyes shut as
another agonizing pain jolts. Only this time the pressure is so intense, so unbearable, making my body shake, beads of sweat instantaneously emerge on my
forehead. “Trent.” Someone is calling his name, it’s not me though as my ability to speak is gone. My hearing is not.

There is nothing in this world that could make me not recognize the sound of that southern accent calling out Trent’s name. My heart pounding at an
increasingly rapid pace. A dozen needles stabbing profusely over and over again.

My forehead crinkles in confusion, lifting it slowly, the click clack of her heels on the hardwood floor, louder the closer they approach. Heels as bright
red as the blood beginning to pool underneath my body, those shoes are demanding the right to be heard as she squats down next to Trent. “W…what are you
doing here?” My trembling sound waves ricochet throughout the room.

“You don’t look so well Clove, my dear.”

Her sound sugary sweet. She’s watching me so intensely. I don’t know how or why it hits me, but it does. When her head tilts to the side, her snide smirk
graces her face.

“Y…you,” I say through a clenched breath. The last thing I remember before I fall on my side, crying, pleading, begging god to save my baby is the sound of
her malicious laugh.

ContriteContrite by Kathy Coopmans

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Contrite by Kathy Coopmans is one of the best books I have read in 2015. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading. I felt all the emotions Clove was going through. I was gasping and covering my mouth most of the book. This book does end in a cliffhanger, but oh it is so good!!

Clove Calloway knows within an hour of picking up her husband Turner from the airport that something is different, yet she can't pinpoint what. Together since college, they know everything about each other... so why has she spent the last few days watching everything he does, hoping for a clue? What could have happened within the week he was gone?
One way or another, she's going to find out.
When Clove enlists the help of her brother Zach, a police detective, she's afraid her suspicions of infidelity will be confirmed. Terrified that such news will crush her heart, she sets about preparing for the worst, only to find it's much more than she could have imagined- there is no other woman.
Clove's life is about to descend into a web of deceit, lies, and betrayal.
Appearances can be deceiving...and only the Master Manipulator will be left standing.
*Note* This book contains graphic scenes of physical and sexual violence. Reader discretion is advised.

This book is a mindf*ck and expect a rollercoaster ride. I can't for Reprisal.....

Title:  In

Love's Defense

Author: Lorraine Britt

Genre: Contemporary Adult/New Adult  Romance

Publication Date:  June 15, 2015


Wilson Jasper McLaglen IV inherits three things when he loses his parents…his

father’s partnership in the law firm he helped build, the stately Southern home

he grew up in and the family’s distillery.  To the outside world it seems like he

has it all.  Except someone to share it with.

Elyse Gibbs inherits two things when she loses her parents…a mountain of debt

and her little brother.  To the first year law school student, both are

overwhelming…and it’s a losing battle she is fighting alone.

When Wil McLaglen literally knocks her off her feet, it seems he could be the

answer to her prayers.  Instead she’s too proud, too headstrong, and she pushes

him away.  Will she let her pride get in the way of her heart?  Wil wants to give

her a future, to make her dreams come true, to give her a family.  Now if she

could only realize she truly is his dream, that her dreams are his dreams…if she

could only let him make those dreams a reality, for them all.


Why did he have this gnawing feeling deep down in his gut telling him that Elyse

was that girl?  He’d had that feeling since the moment she dowsed him with

coffee on the courthouse steps.  Every moment she’d spent with him since had

only reinforced it.  He knew, after last night though, that he had a long road

ahead of him.  She wasn’t going to open up to him and let him into her life

easily.  There were a lot of walls built around her.  How was he going to convince

her he was worth her letting down those walls?
