Excerpt
He’s swimming toward me, closing in, and I retreat until my shoulder blades hit the 

lip of the pool.

“Your fate is in my hands,” he says.

“I accept that,” I say. His surprised expression is so rare that I almost lose my train 

of thought. “What I can’t accept is not knowing my fate. If you’ll just tell me if I’ll 

live or die, tell me what I’m doing here, what my purpose is, and if it’s . . . forever, I

promise—I will be better.”

“You ask for a lot.” He steps within inches of me so our faces almost touch.

“Tell me that, and I won’t ask for anything else.”

He raises his hand to run his thumb over my cheekbone. The room is silent save for 

the acute splash echo of pool water. His fingers slide down my face and under my 

hair, where they wrap around the nape my neck. “You look sexy when you’re wet, 

Cataline.”

My eyelids threaten to close, but I force myself to hold his gaze.

He lowers his mouth to my ear. “You’d make a beautiful mermaid,” he whispers. 

“But, then, how would I fuck you?”

Review: Tall, Dark and Lonely (Pyte/Sentinel #1) By R.L. Mathewson


Synopsis
Things are finally looking up for Madison. After years of scraping just to get by she lands her dream job and finally has a decent down payment for a house so she can move her brother and sister into a real home. It's too bad nothing ever goes the way it's supposed to. When the mother that abandoned them years ago suddenly shows up and moves them to New Hampshire Madison has no choice but to go or lose her brother and sister. Shoving her dreams aside yet again, Madison tries to make things work, it's really cold, her fifteen year old sister acts like a hooker in training, men act funny around her, her boss is a real jerk, she feels like an outsider, her best friend turns out to be a sixteen year old punk, and the incredibly handsome guy renting the room adjoining hers not only hogs the bathroom, taking three showers a day and leaving her with cold water, but he also has a secret. A secret that she becomes a bit obsessed with and can't let go no matter how many times she's warned off.

Detective Ephraim Williams learned long ago not to show any emotion or allow himself to get attached to humans. What was the point? They came and went and he remained. This time wouldn't be any different or so he thought. When his landlady told him her grandchildren were moving in he didn't expect much, well other than to be left alone. What he didn't expect was to have to fight bloodlust every time he so much as caught a whiff of his delectable neighbor's scent or her bombarding him with questions every time she cornered him. If that's not bad enough a Master from his past has found him once again and is demanding his blood and is willing to do anything to get it, even using the exasperating neighbor that makes him feel more than pain for the first time in centuries.


My Review
 4 Bloody Stars!
After reading the synopsis I was like oh oh this is a book for me! I have only read one other R.L.Mathewson's book which is book 1 from the Neighbour from hell series called Playing for keeps which i loved! I know, I know just one other book *hangs head in shame* It is now on the top of my to-do list to get more books by this author read.


Tall, Dark & Lonely is book one in R.L. Mathewson’s Pyte/Sentinel series.I somehow got this notion that this was a funny book and would just be a fun, humorous book.And well it did have funny buts but there was a lot more to it and imagine my shock when it starts off on a serious note! It starts off telling us about Ephraim Williams and what happened in his past.We get insight into how things changed for him and the brutal condition he survived.My heart hurt for him and I really just wanted to make it all better for him!

Ephraim Williams is a special vampire known as a Pyte. Being a Pyte enables him to walk in the sunlight without being harmed.He has been alive over 200 years and settles in quiet areas and always keeps to himself.He is always in control of his blood lust and has never had a problem with it after he learned control.Things all change really fast when Madison Soloman becomes his new neighbour. He can't seem to stay away and his blood lust is out of control.She drives him crazy and he can't explain why her blood smells better than anyone else's.


Madison Soloman is a strong, responsible woman who has had to raise her brother and sister whilst her mother went away to do her own things, chasing men and so on.Nothing seems to be going well since her mother returned, they are on their way to live with their grandmother (their mums mum) who they haven't really met since their mother stopped talking to her parents. Madison has had alot on her plate, with raising the kids, putting herself through college, getting a job and so on. She hopes things with her grandma will help ease all the responsibilies.
Little does she know her new neighbour will change everything!


“I’m not asking you to love me. I’m asking you to let me love you. I’m fine if you never say it. I just want you, Madison.”


Madison was a likable character, she was funny with some of the things she came out with and she wasn't one of those whiny women thankfully because I am so sick of those. I loved the banter between Madison and Ephraim. Oh Ephraim oofftt he was so HOT!
R.L. Mathewson sure knows how to create sexy, hot, loveable male characters that make you wish you could live inside a book forever.I loved him, just didn't want this book to end, wanted more of Madison and Ephraim story. Hope we still see them in book 2.


“See that’s exactly what I’m saying. You’re seeing what you want, and what you see you explain away and excuse things like you’re fixing me. I’m not perfect, Ephraim and I really wish you would see that.”
“You drool.” 
“What?” That caught her off guard.
“When you’re asleep you drool. I’ve woken up more than a few times with a little puddle forming on my chest.” After a thought he added. “And you snore. Not a delicate snore either mind you.”
“I do not!” Her face colored with indignation.
He sighed heavily as if the knowledge pained him. “Oh, but you do. I’ve even heard Jill talk about it. Did you know that’s the main reason she was happy about her room. Actually, she and Joshua thanked your Grandmother for putting you at the other end of the house, something about finally getting a decent night’s sleep. They compared your snore to a chainsaw. I can see why they’d say that.”



Hahaha! I can't wait for more and I hope that as the series goes on it only gets better.I would definitely recommend this to PRN lovers and anyone who loves humour, fast paced story and much more.I could not stop reading this book and was up late at night.I just had to finish it, I was totally absorbed on this book and wanted more.I didn't want it to finish yet I couldn't stop reading it..yeah not a great combination.

My other fav character has to be Chris he was hilarious! Such a strong, funny, adorable character who is rough around the edges due to circumstances he has been faced with at such an early age.



“It’s not complicated and it doesn’t compare to my problem, now give me a damn cookie I think I earned it,” Jill snapped.

Chris grinned like it was Christmas morning. “Yes, you did.” He brought her a cookie. “Very good, my young one. You’ve made Chris very happy with this little tidbit of information.”


I am looking forward to see how the story continues.Book 2 is Chris's story and I am intrigued.I will be looking forward to seeing how his story unfolds and what will happen to the rest of the characters.

Unbearable Guilt
Breathe Again #2
By: Emma Grayson
Releasing Feb 24th, 2014


Blurb
Kane Archer hasn’t always been full of rage or torment, he hasn’t always hated life or himself, and he hasn’t always lived in a world riddled with so much guilt that it consumed him. There was a time when his life was complete, when he smiled and laughed, made electrifyingly passionate love, and breathed happiness.
Until the unthinkable took it all away from him.



Now, still reeling from his fiancĂ©e’s death two and a half years later, and with the promise he made to find the men who killed her and bring them to justice –regardless of the cost– Kane returns to Camden, the one place he swore he’d never go back to.


Numb, afflicted by guilt, and haunted by the events that led to Aimee’s death, the last thing Kane wanted was to meet someone he felt connected to; who made him feel again.

As Kane gets closer to the ones responsible for Aimee’s death, he’s thrown a curve ball when he discovers a secret so devastating it not only rocks his world, but threatens to destroy any chance at happiness.

Whitney Jareau packed up her life and left everything behind when tragedy struck her family. Finally able to get away from her persistent and domineering family who wanted her to do the one thing she couldn’t, she found her solitude in Camden.

Now, two years later, her family wants her home and will go to any lengths to get her there. With her heart on her sleeve for Kane Archer, a man so gorgeous it hurts to see the pain he carries, Whitney fights her family and refuses to return home to carry out their wishes.

Can Whitney stand strong without succumbing to the demands of her family?

Can Kane let Aimee and the past go in order to move forward with the woman who brought him back to life?

Or will he walk away from her and only ever feel the burden of UNBEARABLE GUILT

Ravage Me Blog Tour TeaserExcerpt
“Sugar, you just stirred up a shit storm.” The southern drawl to his voice mixed with the smell of leather, cigarettes, and radiating testosterone would have made my pussy clench, but he ruined that by pressing a damn gun to my head.
“Low, don’t.” I ignored Casey just as I always did. Quickly, I turned my body. As my arm reached back to knock the gun out of his hand, I instantly froze. The three patch rag falling on his chest was a red light flashing in my eyes. Immediately, I stopped, putting my hands in front of me. I would never touch a brother, outside of the ring that is.
The man standing in front of me caught my breath and short-circuited my senses. His broad shoulders were covered with a skin-tight, black t-shirt and leather rag adorned with several patches that fit him like a glove. His bulging arms were covered in tattoos from the wrist up. They were flexed, one pointed the gun with precision, and the other was fisted at his side. His light caramel hair was cut short on the sides, but longer on the top, begging for a woman’s fingers to run through it. His beard was cut very short to his skin making my mouth water, wondering what it would feel like between my thighs. His sapphire eyes narrowed at me as I stared effortlessly in them, becoming entranced unable to speak.
“What the fuck is going on here?” Breaking from this man’s stare, I focused on the familiar voice I’ve missed for too long. Pops eyes swept the room quickly, and when his eyes landed on mine, the anger in them instantly faded. “What the hell’s going on?” He eyed the man with the gun pointed directly at my head and he clenched his hands into fists.
“Hey, Pops,” I said, turning my eyes back to the beautiful specimen in front of me, wanting him to know that I wasn’t afraid. If I needed a bullet in my head, so be it. I wouldn’t shy away.
“You know this bitch?” the hot asshole in front of me clipped, and my lip curled slowly. If he wasn’t wearing that rag, I’d show him how much of a bitch I could be.
“Put the damn gun down, Cruz,” Pops said jokingly. The anger dripping off this man’s face in front of me told me he didn’t see anything funny about this. He began to take a step closer. “Cruz. Stop!” Pops barked loudly as the other guys started walking up behind him. Cruz instantly stopped, but kept the gun on me. “Cruz, this is my daughter, Princess.”
“Shit. Are you fucking kidding me?” Cruz’s anger was actually pretty funny, and I had to stifle the small laugh that wanted to escape. I had too much respect to let it fly. But the shocked look on his face was pretty priceless coming from a tattooed hot-ass. I probably should have told him that sooner, but what can I say … I was born a bitch.
“No, I’m not fucking kidding you. Get the fuck away from her, and put the goddamn gun down.” Moving my head to Pops, I could see he was fuming. Whenever Pops was mad, his forehead turned bright red, and the lines throughout it became more prominent along with the vein that ticked with this heartbeat. It’s a look I always hated growing up, and it used to scare the ever-loving shit out of me.
My eyes flicked back while Cruz took one more look at me. “If you’re still pissed later, we can meet in the ring.” I smiled my damnedest. I could see the smoke threatening to come out of his ears. Confusion laced his eyes, but I wasn’t about to explain right now. I held out my hand to Cruz, “Nice to meet ya. I’m Harlow.” He stared me down as if he was hoping he could make me combust into a million pieces. Sorry Buddy, your super powers won’t work. I’ve been here too long to let that get me.
He tentatively lowered the gun, putting it behind his back, bringing his hand to mine. My hand slipped into his warm, rough, strong grip, a shock raced through my body, beginning at my connected hand and racing all the way through to my feet setting my body on fire. “Cruz.”

Review/Giveaway: Becoming Noah Baxter (Marked, #2) by J.M. Sevilla


Synopsis
Part two of a two part series. 

Jay and Lily complete each other in ways no one else ever could, teaching one another things about themselves they wouldn't have known otherwise, but is it enough? Can two people from entirely different worlds find a way to make it last? Even if their love is strong enough, they still have an obstacle standing in their way. Will they survive the “game”, or will The Marker destroy everything they had hoped to create?

New Adult Romance.
This book contains violence, excessive language, and strong sexual content. It's intended to be read by mature audiences.



My Review
4.5-5 Fantastic, Jay Loving Stars!!


J.M. Sevilla any book you write.. I will be reading! So any more you release, just send them my way ;)
I absolutely adored book 1 in the Marked series and was really excited when I got sent this arc.I may have jumped in joy..okay that's a lie because its just to cold for that shit, I did do a little wiggle in my chair! I know, I know ain't I bloody active girl!

I was going to read it later because this one it the last book in the series *sobs* but it just didn't work out that way.Since I am on the subject of this being the last book, can we have more? pleasseee? Ben and Arianna and Hattie and Charlie soo need their own book! *puppy dog eyes*

“I can’t imagine a life without you in it. You make life worth experiencing, worth living.”


This book starts off where book 1 left off, Lily has gone home and Jay is trying to lure the marker out.It's kill or be killed.He wants her safe and away from everything as there may be a chance that he doesn't make it.They are separated and in this time you see change, their characters grow and become better versions of themselves. Lily who was at first seen as a meek and somewhat shy becomes more confident and brave.jay on the other hand wants to change, to become a better person for Lily.Nothing is that simple and as the story continues there are twists and excitement,intense scenes and pages you just can't stop turning.I was pulled in right from the start and couldn't stop reading until I had finished it.I tried to slow down, I just didn't want it to end but them my curiosity got the best of me.


“I’m afraid that somehow I’m cursed, and if the universe hears me something will happen and you’ll be taken away from me again.”


Jay struggles to become a better person, he believes that she deserves better and has no idea what she is doing with him. Their separation is difficult for both of them, Lily is always worried that Jay may not ever come back for her, what if the Marker kills him? She is trying to get on with her life but it just isn't the same without them having each other. Jay's love for Lily is more than he could have ever imagine it even overrides his hate for The Marker. His need for revenge is nothing compared to his love for Lily and he will do everything in his power to keep her safe.

“Be that man, Jay. Be the man who fights for us and will never let anything destroy what we have. Don’t doubt the love we share.”

Circumstances causes Lily and Jay to meet up again but its not easy and there is a lot of danger.Can their love survive? Or will The Markers plans break them apart forever?

New characters were introduced and I wanted to know more about them as well as old characters returning.We find out more about Ben and Arianna as well and I need more! Since reading book 1 I have had a soft spot for Ben and my heart hurt for him and I wanted to see things change for him.

I recommend this series to everyone who wants an intense, thrilling, action-packed journey filled with love, revenge and much much more!

********************
Book Excerpt
I was in some sort of maze. Gray, cracked, stonewalls surrounded me. I was outside and 
the sky was dreary. Why couldn’t I find someone with happy dreams? I mean, really are 
all people’s psyche’s this messed up? 
I felt the pull for me to move to my left. I stood my ground unwilling to follow the pull. 
I wanted the dreamer to stop moving. But the more I stood there, I began to feel my skin 
itch. I gave in and wandered around the maze.
“Nick?” He didn’t appear after a few minutes. “Nick?” But I got nothing.
I continued to wander. I didn’t have a problem until I cam to a dead end and the 
dreamer kept moving. I tried to back track, fighting against the pull, but the maze was 
harder to maneuver of my own free will. My skin itched and pulled and pinched. I 
began to run, trying to make up the distance.
“Nick!” I needed Nick to get me out of here. “Nick!”
The pull continued attack my skin. I felt a rain drop on my upper lip. Great, it was going 
to rain now I thought. I ran more and more and felt another drop. I touched my lip and
looked at my finger.
I stopped in my tracks. I touched my nose and found more blood on my hand. This 
wasn’t happening. It was not real. I was not actually bleeding. It was a dream. But the
pull started again. I moved. I ran fast.
I came to a dead end almost with each turn. I could feel the blood drip out of my nose 
like a leaky faucet. I wanted to scale the walls. I wanted to get the dreamer to just stop 
moving, to make this feeling stop.
I needed to wake up.

Cover Reveal: Toxic (Ruin 2) by Rachel Van Dyken


SYNOPSIS:

Everyone has a secret...

Gabe Hyde is on borrowed time. He's been hiding his identity for over four years-hidden from the world that used to adore him--obsess over him--driven to the edge of insanity by one poor choice. 
But that one choice, altered the course of his life forever. 
Pretending isn't all it's cracked up to be, especially when pretending means hiding your real self from the people that care about you the most. But if anyone ever discovered the truth it wouldn't just be his life at risk--but hers. 

Saylor doesn't hate men. 
Just Gabe. 
Only Gabe. 
He's a reckless, happy-go-lucky, silver spoon fed pain in her ass. Everything about him makes her more and more confused. Unfortunately they both donate time at the same Group Home. If she wasn't afraid of flunking, she'd be long gone. She hates that she's attracted to him almost as much as he hates that he's attracted to her--and she can tell, especially since their first encounter ended up making her knees so weak she couldn't form coherent sentences for weeks afterwards. But the closer she gets to him, the more confused she becomes. He isn't who he says he is, and he's hiding something big. 

What happen when two worlds collide? Two worlds that never should have met in the first place? Some secrets are too big to be hidden forever--the only question? Will his destroy everyone he loves? Or finally bring about the redemption he's been craving for the past four years?

Everyone has a secret...What's yours?

I really enjoyed this book it was different to the books I usually read and I loved the characters and how it all worked out. The moments between Madison and Carter were so adorable and I was like awww!


"She was pouting.When he watched his daughter do this, she held his heart. When he witnessed this sexy woman do it, she had his soul."

It was a journey through heartbreak and loss to healing and happiness.
It shows how life is unpredictable and even when things go bad, you should always have hope for tomorrow..
Tomorrow things will be better!
This is a funny, emotional, heartbreaking, beautiful love story!


"Caleb's lips were demanding against hers until a little voice asked,"Daddy,why are you on top of Miss Abby kissing her?" CRAP!"
