Love in Darkness by E.M. Tippetts - Promo!!!!!

Alex had everything when he was with Madison. But the darkness within him wouldn't go away. After two years apart, he returns to Pelican Bluffs and to the girl he never wanted to leave. 
 Madison wants to give their love another chance, but Alex can't fight fate. He is what he is. Ruined. Crazy like his mother. And Madison deserves so much more. When his secrets spill out into their small town, Alex has a choice to make. Hide away in the darkness forever, or let love in.
Excerpt:
 
“We have to break up,” I hear myself tell her. I’m standing on the rocky beach, my back to the crashing surf. In front of me is Madison, gazing up at me with pure pain in those ice blue eyes. Behind her is the rugged rock wall of the cliff face.
Her hair is pulled back in a simple ponytail and the breeze stirs the wisps that frame her face. The air is cool, but not cold. “I know myself, all right?” I explain. “The moment you move on, I won’t be able to take it. So I’ve got to let you go.”
“Don’t do this.”
“I’m sorry.”
“Take it back. Please. Alex, I don’t want to break up.” Her eyes are wide, like clear, crystal pools.
“And I need you not to write to me,” I say.
“Why?” Now she claps both her hands over her nose and mouth as if to hold back pain or tears, or whatever it is shining from her gaze.
It takes every ounce of my control not to back down. I have to stop kidding myself and finish this. “Because, I don’t want to know the moment you move on. I just… I need you to give me space.”
“You’re going to Japan. That’s not enough space for you?”
“I’m sorry, all right.” I back away, stepping carefully on the rocky beach. “But it’s not like we were ever going to last.”
“Why not?”
That, I should think, is obvious. Because the two of us together makes no sense. She’s beautiful and popular and has guys lining up around the block for a chance to be with her. I’m a high school dropout with a criminal record and no future. She should be embarrassed to be with me. Eventually we’ll both have to grow up. At least I’ll have the memories.
As I turn away, I hear her scrabble behind me, then the rapid beat of her boots against the stony ground. “Alex, wait.” Her tone is anguished.
I set my jaw against the pain, like I’ve stitched my own heart with a silk thread and am now yanking it hard enough to tear the organ. I keep walking.
She grabs my hand, her supple fingers wrapping around my palm. “Stop.”
I stop, but I don’t turn.
It doesn’t matter because she darts around in front of me and puts one arm around my waist. The other hand she slides up my back to grasp my shoulder. Her soft curves fit against my body. It’s how she always holds me, and I can’t endure it this time. I bow my head and just let the tears fall.
“Alex,” she whispers, touching her forehead to mine, that soft breath against my lips. “Don’t, okay? You promised you’d never hurt me.”
At that I let out a sob. Forget saving face. She knows me for who I am anyway and now she’s wiping away my tears. “Listen,” she says, “you need me not to distract you from your mission, fine. But I’ll always be here for you, and when you come back, I’ll be waiting.” She strokes my cheek with the backs of her fingers and leans up to press her lips against mine.
I don’t want to kiss back, but at the same time, I can’t resist. She runs her fingers through my hair and the kiss goes on and on until I’ve got both arms wrapped tight around her and I’m drinking in her essence, liquid fire that pools in my core. I have to stop this.
But when I do, she doesn’t let me pull back. She leans in and looks me straight in the eye. “I’ll wait for you. I don’t care if you don’t believe me. Let’s not end things with a fight, okay? Let’s end it on a good note for now.”
“Goodbye, Madison.”
“Bye, Alex. For now.”
“I love you.” I don’t mean to say it, but it slips out, my whisper barely loud enough for me to hear it myself.
Madison’s chin snaps up. “What?”
I shake my head, willing her not to press me.
“Alex-”
I start to pull away but she reels me back in, not by force, but with her gaze. Her eyes beg me not to leave. She puts one arm around my waist again and slides her other hand up my back. “It’ll be all right. Everything will be all right,” she says.
“We have to break up,” I hear myself tell her. I’m standing on the rocky beach, my back to the crashing surf. In front of me is Madison, gazing up at me with pure pain in those ice blue eyes. Behind her is the rugged rock wall of the cliff face.

No Tan Lines by Kate Angell

Summer is coming! I have faith that even with all of the wonky weather that everyone has been having it will show up on time bringing the warmth & relaxation that the season promises. And vacations. Let's not forget vacations & vacation reading! I have found a fantastic Summer beach/pool/on the plane or in the car book to throw in your travel bag.

No Tan Lines is first and foremost about a family feud that is a century old. A literal line was drawn in the sand separating two settlements and generations later the line still exists.

On one side we have the Cates family of Barefoot William. A laid back group that runs all the business' on the pier. The family decision maker is Shaye Cates and she is my kind of girl. Shoes are a nuisance and her office consists of a beach umbrella and chair set up on the beach. Office attire is swimwear or shorts & t-shirts. My kind of boss!

On the other side we have the Saunders family of Saunders Shores. An uptight straight-laced community where shoes are a must and no one would dare lower themselves to actually using the beach for swimming or tanning. Trace Saunders is the current CEO of Saunders Shores and the lifelong nemesis of Shaye.

Unfortunately, Trace has something that Shaye needs and through a series of manipulatory meetings they are working together to host a charity volleyball tournament.

Heads butt and sparks ignite when lines are crossed and the magic of the sun and sand lower inhibitions.

This is the first book in the Barefoot William Series and the 2nd book, No Strings Attached, is available now and I'll be reading it soon.

Don't Hate The Player......Hate The Game by Katie Ashley

So.........you know when you have a good friend and they introduce you to one of their good friends that you don't know? This new person is perfectly nice and you get along with them, but you can just tell that you won't be friends. There is just 'something' missing. You don't begrudge the friendship between your friend and this person and you don't mind hanging out with them. Just don't look for a phone call asking to hang out one-on-one. Know what I mean?????? That is the relationship that I feel I have with Katie Ashley and her books.

The first book I read of hers was The Proposal & then The Proposition (yes, I read them backwards by accident). I abandoned The Proposal about 1/3 of the way in & it took me 3 weeks to go back & finish it. I just wasn't feeling it. I'm nothing if not committed though, so I went ahead & read The Proposition. I struggled through that too. I bought into the hype of Don't Hate The Player.....and struggled through it too. Katie Ashley & I just aren't meant to be friends.

In Don't Hate The Player Noah Sullivan is reeling from the horrifying death of his best friend Jake. An accidental finding of an engagement ring in Jake's room has him embarking on a quest to find out which one of Jake's girls it was meant for. Is it Avery, the stuck-up Ice Princess who had cut Jake off from any sexual activity, or Presley the 'easy' girl who welcomed Jake into her arms & bed? Then there is Maddie the church girl who isn't anywhere near Jake's type. The quest takes Noah on a journey of self-discovery teaching him things about himself and Jake that he never knew. He questions how well he really knew his very best friend.

I do like the idea of this book & my dislike comes more from the execution of it. There are numerous misspellings as well as many sentences that don't make sense. Basically it needs more editing. I also feel like the story and her writing style are too juvenile for me. This is a YA novel, but I read this genre without feeling like this all the time.

So.......I know that we have mutual friends & I wish you all the best in your relationship, but Katie Ashley should not wait by the phone for my call.

Somerset by Leila Meachum

I came across this link yesterday and was sooooooo excited. Somerset is the prequel to the book Roses, which I have read & loved. It is along the same lines as the Thorn Birds or Gone With The Wind (which is my favorite movie btw). A great epic tale that spans generations and is heartbreaking in it's journey. I can't wait for Somerset to be released to gain deeper insight into the birth of grudge holding at it's finest.

If you haven't read Roses, please put it on your TBR list. I promise you won't be disappointed. Of course now that you know there is a prequel maybe you could wait and read them 'in order'.

The Vampire's of Soldiers Cove by Jessica MacIntyre

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slp3DpkySu8&list=LL_I2y1X83uPAENg1qUQvJ2A


When 24 year old Rachel Landry, who suffers from a debilitating mental illness, recieves a knock at her door one night from a stranger she gets an offer she can’t refuse. The chance to live as a vampire, gaining eternal life and relative sanity seems like a great plan. Soon she comes to realize she has been turned for a specific purpose and her vampire existence may be short lived. Also the handsome stranger may not be as much of a stranger as she thought. Facing her demons along with new enemies she must come to rely on her own strength to save her life, and the life of her new clan.

I was asked to check out this book, by the author, and I have to admit, I'm a little leery when that happens. I like to pick books on my own and even though I'm totally into the Vampire thing I still wasn't sure. I can be pretty picky.  Shame on me! Time and time again I am surprised when I get over myself and step out of my comfort zone. This book was just another one of those surprises.

Why you should read this book: there are vampires (obviously), there is romance, there are STEAMY sex scenes, there is conflict, and of course a HEA. Sorry if that's a spoiler! (not really - I hate reading books that don't end well) I raced through it in one sitting and can't wait to go back for a re-read. Definitely a must read.

Did I mention that it's book 1 of a 4-part series???? Book 2 has a tentative Sept/Oct. release date. Keep your eyes out for it - I know it will be great!

Beach Colors by Shelley Noble

If you like to read books by Kristin Hannah you are going to like this book.

Margaux Sullivan, successful NY designer of the brand M Atelier, has lost everything to her thieving husband. Her dreams of making it to New York's Fashion Week have slipped through her fingers. With her career in shambles and not a dime to her name she returns to the family's Summer beach house with her pride shattered. The beach house holds happy memories for her and the more time she spends there the more she can feel herself slipping back to the girl she once was. One that doesn't wear black all the time, but embraces color. One that still believes in dreams and wishes even after she's hit rock bottom.

Nick Prescott is a 'townie' that has returned to help his mother raise his nephew. His strong sense of familial obligation and guilt has him accepting the position of Chief of Police, giving up his dream job of being a History teacher. Nick has learned throughout his life that loss is reality and dreams are best forgotten about. Like forgetting about the 'Summer girl' who stole his heart when they were young even though they never spoke.

Can Margaux find her way back to the top? Does she still want to? Can Nick learn to loosen up and that dreams really can come true?

This book is a quick easy read & with Summer approaching, a great book to throw in your beach bag.

COVER REVEAL FOR 'LOVE OF TRUTH'

For the next eleven days all Amelia Adler wants is a nice relaxing vacation on the beach. All she’ll do is drink pineapple margaritas and read sexy steamy romance novels. She doesn’t want to think about the... stress of her daily life nor the fact that she doesn’t know what to do with her life.

Craig Patrice just wants to spend his last spring break catching wave after waves during the day in the Pacific Ocean, and relax as much as he can at night. This is his last break before finishing law school and starting at a firm this upcoming summer. He has no desire for a fling or a girlfriend.

Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan

In the beginning there were peanuts.....

Yowza! This book is so freaking intense. Do NOT read this book if you are looking for a fairytale romance with men who are 'good' and women who are 'pure'. DO read this book if you love rollercoasters. I loved the ride and recommend you buy a ticket to read. Just buckle up and hang on tight!

I was more than a little creeped out at the beginning of the story when little Eva meets Deuce for the first time when she is 5 and he is 23. Ewwww! Of course nothing inappropriate happens at that point, (other than they meet at Rikers Island while both are visiting their incarcerated fathers) but just knowing it will later was a little icky for me.

The 'relationship' between Deuce and Eva spans years. MANY years! Many TUMULTUOUS years. I'm not even sure where to start without spewing out all of the truly messed up stuff that happens in this book.

While their meetings are few and far between their reunions are intense and extremely passionate. Since their first hook-up (when Eva is 16 and Deuce is 34!) they both are clear that they should stay away from each other. Far away. That fact is reiterated by Eva's father who shoots Deuce twice after catching him with his daughter. A few bullets are nothing to a bad ass biker who knows what he wants.

Eva is the daughter of  Damon Fox AKA 'Preacher' the President of the Silver Demons motorcycle club. This translates to Eva having not only one biological father, but a club full of adopted ones. All willing to let her embrace 'club life'. Apparently in biker world it's ok for a young girl to know what the whores at the club are there for and to overlook that the guys are all married.

Deuce is the President of the Hell's Horsemen motorcycle club which is also filled with less than stellar characters, criminals and whores galore. A side story to this would be the multitude of STD's that have to be running rampant through these places. These boys share their toys. That's all I'm saying.

They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions and Eva's journey takes her straight to her own personal self-deprecating fallen angel type of hades.

Deuce wants Eva in ways that he has never wanted any other woman, but is not willing to give up his 'club' ways to have her. Although Eva grew up in this environment can she truly overlook his antics in order to be with him?

 Commence to reading to find out.....

Crush by Nicole Williams

No other way to put it, but it really sucks.......when a series you have devoted yourself to comes to an end. I have loved traveling the path of Jude & Lucy's relationship through Crash then Clash and finally Crush.

It has finally happened for Jude. His dream of being drafted into the NFL has become a reality. While being separated from Lucy is unbearably hard he quickly becomes enamored with his new lifestyle and all it affords. Wanting to give Lucy everything she has ever wanted he loses sight of the fact that the only thing she ever wanted was him.

While missing Jude desperately Lucy is determined to continue following her own dreams of finishing her dance degree. Taking classes prevents her from moving with Jude and to fill her lonely days she also finds a job with Anton her BFF's brother. (Remember India?) Unfortunately Anton is a hopeless flirt and has set his sights on Lucy. Jude sniffs out his intentions and old insecurities surface. Adding to the precariousness of the situation is Lucy's hesitancy to walk down the aisle. Will 'soon' ever come?

Does absence really make the heart grow fonder when temptation, money, jealousy, and an earth shattering revelation come into play?

Williams scores a touchdown with this book. Jude & Lucy are flawed, damaged and real. The ending is precious and endearing. This trilogy is going on my favorites list and Jude is definitely a top 10 book boyfriend!

Real by Katy Evans

Holy shit balls! I JUST finished reading Real and am in that place between the euphoria of finding a great book and the purgatory of never being able to read it again for the first time.

Brooke Dumas is a wounded former Olympic hopeful forging a new life for herself. Remington Tate (how sexy is that name?) is a boxer who fights in the underground circuit. From the moment he sees Brooke watching in the crowd he knows he has to have her. Coming face-to-face with the much adored boxer is almost more than Brooke can handle. She has never known anyone like him and from the first meeting she wants him. The way a woman wants a man. Bad! Remy hires Brooke to travel with them as his preventative rehab therapist. Sparks fly and Brooke quickly realizes that there is more to Remy than his looks. Something dark. She falls hard and when she finds out Remy's secret she must decide if she is willing to fight to keep him.

While this book is filled with all the things we love: a hot sexy troubled male, a beautiful desired female, an obstacle to overcome, and a tumultuous relationship path it is not pretty. It is rough and gritty and tackles serious subject matter. It's not a fairytale. This is real!


Great news! The sequel to Real called Mine should be arriving sometime this year. I can't wait to read more about Remy & Brooke.

This Girl by Colleen Hoover

Two thumbs up. Five Stars. Yada, Yada, Yada, Blah, Blah, Blah! It's Colleen Hoover - you know it was great!

The thing that has me the most excited about this book is this: it was to-a-T-if-I-had-written-it-myself-it-couldn't-have-been-more-perfectly-exactly-what-I-wanted. There was another author who recently released their male protagonist POV book & I was super excited to get it. Like, SUPER excited. Her main book is one of my absolute faves & I've probably read it 10x. Unfortunately the long anticipated book was a HUGE let down to me. It seemed to gloss over the main story when I wanted to relive it. Thankfully, Colleen lets us relive the love story of Will & Lake in a new way while maintaining all the parts we fell in love with in Slammed & Point of Retreat.

It was a pleasant surprise to find almost all of the characters from the prior books playing a role in this one. Kiersten is back & as inappropriate as ever. "What's a honeymoon? What do people do when they go on one?" Hilarious! Just saying :) Julia plays a large role in This Girl which allows us to gain even deeper insight as to the role she played in the prior books. I love Julia! Probably even more so in this book. The name Julia hold a special place in my heart as it was the name of my maternal grandmother who passed away when I was 11. Glad to see that it continues to be passed along to great characters. (hint, hint - sort of )

I was a bit leary at the flashback/present day format, but quickly got into it. I loved reading Lake's thoughts as Will shared his memories. Who doesn't want to relive their love story & remember what you both were thinking as it progressed? (I'd love to remember as it was 22 years ago :) )  Being a girl reading about a girl I found it funny when Lake's emotions would take over as if the events had just happened. Whether it was anger, jealousy, or tenderness I can relate. I think that's just part of being a girl. Will asks, "Who cares what happened on one silly date more than two years ago?" Um.....we do! Sorry that's just how we are wired.

You must read Slammed & Point of Retreat to fully appreciate the awesomeness of this book. That is kind of a bonus because if you haven't read them - I just gave you 3 great books to add to you TBR. You're welcome!

Colleen did not disappoint and she can be put on the list, all of us voracious readers have, of books to add based on author alone. Bravo Colleen!!!!!
