But freedom has a price.
She ends up on foreign turf; a farm in Oregon with her volatile boyfriend, Roy and his family, who seem to hold even more secrets than her own. As time goes by, Pearl is drawn into beautiful but also tumultuous relationships with these strangers in Oregon, all the while losing a bit of herself with each drop of booze Roy drinks.

And would the answer come too late, as her world spirals down into a path of destruction?

Sweet Blood of Mine - John Corwin
Price as of 1/31/13 prices are subject to change at any time.
FROM MEGA NERD to SUPER STUD

Justin Case and women do not mix. Man boobs, a love of Kings and Castles, and being tight with the "nerd" crowd certainly don't win him any points either. After rescuing Katie, his crush, it turns out she might not be the girl he thought she was, while Elyssa, the school's Goth Girl, turns out to be more. Can high school get any more confusing? 

Determined to improve himself, he joins a gym and meets a sexy girl that just oozes a "come hither, Justin" vibe. Until she attacks him in the parking lot, and Justin realizes she's no ordinary girl but a being with supernatural speed and strength. After a narrow escape and an excruciating migraine headache, he wakes up with supernatural abilities all his own: speed, strength, and the ability to seduce every woman he sees. 

While that might sound like the perfect combo for any hormonal teen, Justin is a hopeless romantic who wants his first time to be special. Is that too much to ask for? But he doesn't know what he is or how to stop his carnal urges. One thing is clear: If he doesn't find answers there are other more sinister supernaturals who would like nothing better than to make him their eternal plaything and do far worse than kill him.

Review~Ten Tiny Breaths~ K.A. Tucker

"Just breathe" my mom would say. "Ten tuny breathes...Seize them. Feel them. Love them."


I don't even know where to begin reviewing this book, my heart aches after finishing it. It was beautiful. Very well written and the story was amazing. Kacey experiences great trauma in her life when she loses almost her entire family and she spirals down a destructive path until her sister pulls her out of it, and then Uncle Raymond climbs into Livie's bed and she takes her sister and moves to Miami. Kacey has learned to be cold and almost uncaring until she meets Trent who "melts" her cold heart, along with her neighbor Storm and her daughter Mia who she can't help to care about. To me this story is about forgiveness, forgiving yourself as well as forgiving others and learning to cope. Kacey suffers PTSD and refuses to discuss anything involving her past and just when she starts to really feel like her self again the unthinkable happens. This story has left me with what everyone is calling a book hangover it is an extremely beautiful story about healing and I strongly recommend it . 

5 out of 5 stars (I want to hug this book)


Synopsis

But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed with Livie one night, Kacey decides it's time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast , Kacey and Livie start their new lives in an apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a perfectly matched stage name to her profession.But Kaceys not worried.

Truth ~ Aleatha Romig

May Contain Spoilers To Consequences! 

This series very reminds me of the TV show Revenge it keep you on the edge of your seat, its juicy and sexy!I love it!

When Claire is released from prison after receiving a pardon all you can do is wonder who? and why? Truth was everything you could ask for in a 2nd installment of a series. I'm in awe with how the author has now made me actually like Tony.. I was rooting for him and Claire. You thought your mind was safe after Consequences THINK AGAIN! This book has me questioning my sanity? And all I can think about are these Loopholes Anthony keeps mentioning!  I had no idea there was going to be a third book that i was going to have to wait impatiently wait for. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who.

“In their figurative game of chess, Anthony Rawlings had Claire in check. Every move she made, he countered.” 

“I have made some bad decisions… and done some things I regret in my life… but without a doubt… what I regret the most… is divorcing you. If you tell me there is hope, that one day you’ll be Mrs. Rawlings again, I will wait.” 

“No matter how much he loved her ... his need to fulfill his promise to Nathaniel would always prevail.” 

“Claire to Tony: "I know you enjoy coffee, I'd offer you some. But, the last time I got you coffee, it didn't work out so well for me.” 

Synopsis

Claire Nichols endured the CONSEQUENCES of Anthony Rawlings’ vendetta. 

When she first arrived to his home, her goal was survival. Through strength and compartmentalization Claire captivated her captor. Her resilience in the face of his rule threatened Anthony’s well developed plan. Domination became desire and power turned to love. 

Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect. Yet, reality was a roller coaster of emotion. Claire’s world teetered on the edge of sanity as Antony monitored her every move. When given the opportunity to flee, Claire drove away. A fateful decision which set a well laid plan into motion. 

However, unbeknownst to either of them, there were others who saw past the perfect facade of Anthony Rawlings. There were others who saw the TRUTH. Conspiracy and unfulfilled promises result in an early prison release for Claire. Not just a release – a pardon. According to the law, her crime never happened! 

Will it be that easy? Faced with freedom from her past... can Claire seize it? Can she build a new life, mend her broken spirit, become the woman she once was, and seek her own revenge? Or is it all a game? And does the game master have different plans?

How does Sophia Burke fit into the puzzle that is Tony and Claire? Will her presence affect the future of this well esteemed man? Can he dominate twice? Is that his goal? 

TRUTH continues the tumultuous saga of CONSEQUENCES, introduces new players, and uncovers more intrigue. Aleatha Romig skillfully weaves past transgressions through current deception to create a fervent world of obsessed desire. In this reality can an all-consuming relationship survive? 

When buried sins are discovered they threaten not only Tony and Claire’s future -- but their very lives! Will the TRUTH be revealed in time

Consequences ~ Aleatha Romig

 So some of my Reviews got lost on our blog that went wonky and some need to be shared!


This book is Wow just wow. I was terrified going into this book, it is not my normal kind of read. For that reason I have been putting of the highly recommended Captive in the Dark because it scared me... well since Consequences was on sale for a whopping $0.99 I figured I'd give it a go. I would not classify this as a romance, even tho when Anthony is being sweet to her it can almost seem that way. The "hero" Anthony Rawlings (and I'm using that term lightly because he is no HERO or is he? more like a criminal ) anyways is more like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde type of character. For me though even in his "sweeter" moments I couldn't get over his brutality in other moments. This book is a very good read, may not be my typical read but it grabbed me and wouldn't let me go. I wanted to cry for and hug Claire. But most importantly and above all my favorite thing about this book was I absolutely didn't see the ending coming, which is so rare and the only other book to do that lately was Hopeless.... I literally just finished this book , went straight to Amazon and purchased Truth. This book took my mind to places I never thought they'd go. Make sure you have Truth  handy after you finish you're going to need it!
“He spoke again as if he hadn’t just shattered his promise and her security. Her house of glass now lay in a pile of shards.” 

“God she hated the dance. A blow to the cheek one minute and discussing a romantic getaway the next. It was the one stepforward, two steps back waltz. She wanted to scream. Sitting on the side of the bed, Claire allowed herself tears and swallowed” 









Besieged by memories of a brutal abduction, Claire Nichols wakes in an unfamiliar bedroom, within a luxurious mansion. Her recollections have one common denominator, the man she just met, Anthony Rawlings. 

Unbeknownst to Claire, for a very long time, she has been within Anthony’s sights. Many of the pivotal events in her life occurred, due to his sinister manipulation. Every action has a consequence, and his actions result in their chance meeting. 

More than a psychological thriller, Consequences is a vivid story of one woman’s struggle to survive incomprehensible circumstances. Every aspect of her being suddenly depends upon the tall, wealthy, dark haired, dark eyed businessman. Anthony Rawlings is known to the world as prosperous, benevolent, and kind. Claire quickly learns that he can also be a menacing controlling captor. 

With few options but concession, Claire attempts to earn her freedom, while enduring a hellish existence that truly appears perfect. Persevering tests and trials, she struggles to retain her pure Midwest values and beliefs. Encouraged by memories of a loving upbringing, she gains strength in the simplest of joys: solitude in nature and good in the face of evil. 

His goal in sight, Anthony’s calculated agenda encounters an unforeseen detour. He becomes captivated by Claire’s beauty, resilience, and determination. The interaction of these two compelling characters instigates strong emotions: fear, anger, love, and lust. Claire and Anthony’s tumultuous journey flows into uncharted waters of intrigue and passion.

Utilizing vivid detail, this 167,000-word novel unfolds like a movie, before the eyes of its readers. From the opening criminal abduction, through twists and turns, to the unlikely romantic thrills, the suspense climaxes as Anthony’s motivation becomes evident. 

Anthony and Claire must decide if they will stay true to one another, or allow preceding actions to result in justifiable Consequences


Review Beautiful Things Never Last ~ Steph Campbell

"You told me a long time ago that beautiful things never last. But I think you're wrong. I think they can. if you fight for them. If You let them change, Quinn. They can morph into something even better. If you make it work"

This book was AMAZING! So much better then Grounding Quinn which I loved. Seeing how Quinn and Ben grew and flourished together was awesome. Now Ben Ben Ben what can I say besides I wanted to HURT him slap him strangle him what an idiot! And don't even get me started on little Ms. Manipulation Caroline! Still loved Carter tho because he's just so supportive. That quote up at the top that moment in this book had me in tears. This book is a must read! 5 out of 5 hearts! (no stars this book needs hearts!) It could be read with out reading Grounding Quinn first but i wouldn't recommend it.


Synopsis


Mature Content: Language, sexual situations, alcohol

It’s been a year since Quinn's life was changed for good by that Christmas kiss from Ben.

A year spent getting her life together. No more crazy parents looking over her shoulder, no more self-destructive behavior or secrets. Now, she and Ben share everything— including a tiny apartment, and a beautiful love.

Since he met Quinn, Ben’s life has been full of change. After finally standing up to his mom, he’s cut ties with his family and moved across the country with the only girl he’s ever wanted. But there’s something to be said for feeling needed, and he’s not sure that he is anymore.

When Quinn’s accepted into a month long culinary program in Italy, she’s ecstatic. But while she’s in a gorgeous country learning gnocchi and pesto, Ben’s blowing off her calls and pulling back.

But someone from Ben’s past walks back into his life, and he finally feels like he has a purpose again. Someone to take care of... Someone to save.

When Quinn returns, and the who's and why's of Ben's behavior are revealed, how does she have any choice but to walk away from the only guy she's ever loved?

And how can Ben ever learn to let her go?

In this follow-up to the 2011 release, GROUNDING QUINN, love and loss take on new meanings when roles are reversed, and the lengths that we go to to protect our hearts are challenged in new ways.


Review of The Edge of Never - J.A. Redmerski

Review by Nicole Delfs

I knew it, I knew it, I totally knew what was coming and even then I wasn't fully prepared for it. Read this book, don't let anyone's review color your opinion about it and embrace every second of it. The last book that left me feeling like this was Hopeless and its a feeling you only get after finishing the rare book. I'm not going to lie, I suffered emotional trauma at the hands of this book. There were parts where I literally couldn't breathe. Its been a good 10 minutes since I finished and I'm still in Wow-freaking-holy-poop-I-can't-believe-I-just-went-through-that-whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! And that's why I can give this book...
                                               
                             A solid and resounding 5 out of 5 Stars or in this case Heart Palpitations!

                           





Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?
