Dirty Little Secrets

Check out what the BUZZ is about onDirty Little Secrets.

Just One by Emily Hemmer

BLURB


Limping her way through a high society birthday bash, Charlie would like nothing more than to trade in her high heels for a pair of old cowboy boots. But when she finds herself tail over tits in the hydrangea, and Alex Ramirez appears to lend a helping hand, four-inch stilettos seem like the least of her worries. What's a country girl to do when her knight in shining armor turns out to be a rich boy with a mysterious agenda, and a pair of panty-dropping dimples? Two star-crossed lovers, one night, and a really naughty leather belt. Maybe Charlie should get out of Harlow County more often…


  


REVIEW


Dang it, Emily why did you have to tease me like that. I so wanted Charlie to smack Miss "Phoney boobs and attitude". She was just literally belittling her in front of Alex and for him to say NOTHING..... Oh, NO.....Okay now I have too many questions that is going unanswered until September 30th. I SO think they have a business agreement or are step-siblings. UGH.... I hate waiting.


Okay now that my venting in OVER, I suggest everyone read the book for the beginning of how Charlie meets Alex or Romeo meets Juliet or Cinderella meets Prince Charming.... Worth the 99 pennies plus more. Hot sex over sugar.....

Hell's Knights by Bella Jewel

18211118




BLURB


Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we've all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?
I thought I knew sex. I've had sex. Heck, I've felt lust. Once, I've even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was.
Until I met Cade.
He's the meaning of sex.
He's a biker.
He's dangerous.
He's powerful.
He's dominant.
He wants me.
My world is about to change, for the better? I don't know. But here's my story, I hope you're ready for it because it's not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It's passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.



REVIEW

Talk about gut wrenching on the edge of your seat romance. WOW..... The sex scenes was hot but the trials and tribulations of the characters were WILD.... Bella "PUT YOU ON YOUR ASS" with this one BABE....


Addison had a hard life and was raised on lies from her whore of a mother who was trapped in a life and the only way out was death by overdose. Yeah sounds typical huh but it was far from it. Addison was a hard-ass sassy survivor who was brought to her knees by someone who shared in a life just as crazy as hers. Yes my sexy biker VP, Cade. Protector, dominant, sexy, and will leave you wet and wanting MORE. I fell in love with him from the first smirk that appeared on his face.


I can go on and on about how the events of this story and the full circle it came in with the characters and the wonderful reunion and understanding of father and daughter but I just want you to read it for yourself. I want book two NOW......

Forget Me Not Blog Tour

Forget me Not Blog Tour


SYNOPSIS:


Lily had a crush on her brother's best friend, Derek for years - which led to their steamy night ten months ago in her bedroom. Now, Lily is going off to college and she and Derek are still going strong. However, when school starts, she realizes it's hard to maintain a relationship while also trying to live her own life. She and Derek find themselves falling apart and Lily has no idea where to turn.
Enter Jack. Everything about him is wrong for Lily and she knows it, but she can't stop herself from being attracted to him. When things implode with Derek, it's Jack who is there to pick up the pieces - and show Lily an entirely new set of experiences she didn't know she was missing.
Of course, Jack has his own problems and once Lily gets to know him better, she starts to wonder if she can handle all of Jack. When Derek reappears on the scene, Lily is forced to decide between two guys and herself. Can she find herself without losing the people who matter in the
process?


Sensual Sexy Lingerie


REVIEW


Lily needed to find herself and going to a college of her own was the way she felt she would insure that she was growing up and independent. I had a conflict of interest in her character and could not agree with the path she chose in "fitting into" college. I know we all have to grow and find our way but I felt she belittle herself to live up to not being a snob or "princess". I would have to say that she redeemed herself when she gave herself time to figure out what she wanted in her life as well as a man.


Jake dealt a shitty hand but he found what worked for him to get him through it. Life on the edge without letting many in worked for him. Lily was the bridge that brought together acceptance and judging for him. Something he could not grasp for the life of him. I still think he needed the closure in which his dad and grandmother believed.


I enjoyed the message of the story because I feel it was more about Jake than Lily but I still was  team Derek in the end. Lily should have just maintained a friendship with Jake to show he could have people who didn't judge him. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.


Here is the music that inspired the author when writing the book and special scenes.....


PLAYLIST


“Amsterdam” – Guster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0TQVbiWeEs

I have to admit I was a year or two out of college, I think, when this song came out, but it reminds me so much of school and it is a great break up song. Not depressing, just more accepting of the way things change. I think it captures the theme of the novel pretty well.

“Beautiful Girl” – INXS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aH986VE47M8

For me, this song captures the way that Jack feels about Lily – he wants to be good enough for her, but he also knows his own story is tough to face. He wants to love her, but he doesn’t think he deserves real love.

“Bullet with Butterfly Wings” – Smashing Pumpkins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-r-V0uK4u0

Oh, this song. There are three reasons I chose this. First, at one point during a sex scene, Lily mentions that the music playing is violently angry. This is the kind of music I pictured for that scene. Secondly, Jack is in a band and this is the kind of music I imagine they play, and the lyrics would be the sort Jack would write. He definitely would see himself as a “rat in a cage.” Finally, I wrote a book about college. I went to college in the 1990’s. There was no way I wasn’t mentioning Smashing Pumpkins! Lol. J

“Somewhere Only We Know” – Keane: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oextk-If8HQ

The novel is romance and it is erotica, but it is also about letting go and moving on. This song reminds me of that moment when you know everything is falling apart, but you want to hang on and make things go back to the way they were before. Lily can’t understand what is happening and she isn’t sure she is ready for everything to end yet.

“When You Were Young” – The Killers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff0oWESdmH0

In some ways, this is self-explanatory, but I love the lyrics for this novel. Not only is the song about moving on, but it is also about saving yourself and not hoping someone else can save you.

EXCERPT


I don’t know what I expected Cade to do, but what he does, has my head spinning. He takes me to a private bar out the back, and locks the door. It’s empty, and my guess, not used a great deal. I watch as he stalks over to the bar and walks around, picking up a bottle of whiskey. He flicks the top off, and puts it to his mouth, drinking. I watch as his throat moves, and oh my, I think my panties just went from soaked to drenched. When he puts the bottle down, he opens the nearby freezer and pulls out some ice. He shrugs off his leather jacket, grips the hem of his shirt and tears it off. I stare, eyes wide.

Cade is fucking beautiful. Every inch of him would make any woman’s panties soaked in seconds. He comes around the bar and stops in front of me. His face is hard to read, but I can still see the lingering anger behind his stony expression. He’s angry at me, no, he’s fucking wild at me. Understandable, I suppose. I watch as he reaches down, gripping his jeans and popping the top button. I swallow and my palms become damp. When he lowers them and his cock springs free, I shudder. He steps forward, gripping my jaw and running his thumb over my bottom lip. His gaze is intense, fierce, even a touch feral. He grips a couple of ice cubes, and puts them towards my mouth.

“Suck these, then get on your knees sugar, and suck my cock.”

BOOK BLURB


Mesa Arraguso writes about hot cowboys for a living. Being a romance writer has it perks and its drawbacks. She spends a lot of time alone in front of her computer, but she gets to fantasize about incredibly hot men wearing cowboy boots and Stetsons. While visiting San Antonio, Texas for a writer’s conference, she finds herself stranded on the back roads of Bandera only to be rescued by one of the most gorgeous men she’s ever encountered, be it fantasy or for real.

Joel Young is a cowboy. From the top of his Stetson to the tip of his dirty cowboy boots, he’s cowboy through and through. Along with rescuing women when they do silly things like running out of gas miles from town on a dirt road, he spends his days herding cattle, fixing fences and breaking horses.

Can one handsome cowboy and a city-girl from LA find common ground is the Hill Country long enough to see beyond a quick fling?

TEASER


“But look at all the stars.” She stopped so she could look up at the night sky. Billions of stars winked off and on lighting up the sky. “Look! A shooting star.” She closed her eyes to make a wish though she couldn’t believe she wished for a kiss.

“What did you wish for?”

“I can’t tell you or it won’t come true.”

“Sure you can. I won’t tell a soul. I promise.”

“All right. I wished you would kiss me.”

She could see the white of his teeth as he smiled. “Is that all?”

“Yes.” The word came out in a soft whisper.

He stepped in front of her and slipped his hand along her cheek to bury his fingers in her hair. God, it felt wonderful. The slight tug on her scalp set her heart to racing a hundred miles a minute. A flutter started in her belly, spreading lower until she felt on fire from his touch. She closed her eyes as his warm breath spread across her lips. Her lips parted on a sigh, accepting the warmth of his mouth. His lips were soft, yet strangely unyielding, like he wanted to absorb her strength through her mouth. One of his hands rested on her hip, pulling her into the curve of his body. His chest felt hard beneath her hands. The soft brush of his tongue on her lips parted them to his invasion. She wanted this, needed to feel alive, needed to be a woman again.

A soft moan escaped her as he took the kiss deeper, bringing both of his hands up to cup her face.

The sound of wolf whistles brought her back to the present as she heard the catcalls from his brothers near the fire. Joel stepped back, breaking the kiss.

LAW of Attraction Banner

Title: The Law of Attraction

Author:  N.M. Silber

Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy/Light Adult Contemporary Romance (18+)

Publication Date:  July 23, 2013

Cover Design:  Cheekycovers

PublisherMendelssohn Levy Publishing

Event organized by: Literati Author Services


SYNOPSIS


Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom …

Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.
And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.
And Marla wanted Braden.
And Cole wanted Gabrielle.
And Mrs. Mason wanted Braden.
And an anonymous letter writer wanted to keep Gabrielle and Braden apart.
Together Gabrielle and Braden discovered many important things, like which doors at the courthouse actually locked, and that desks could be useful for more than writing. They also found out that the path of love was not always smooth, and it was sometimes trod upon by some really wacky people, like a confused fanny grabber, an eighty-two year old pothead and a gentleman who threw a wine and cheese party in his pants. Could true love overcome a lack of privacy, interference by jealous rivals and the insanity of the criminal court system?

NOTICE: This book contains explicit descriptions of sexual situations and mature language. It is intended for readers over the age of eighteen.

REVIEW


I was unable to put the book  down. Braden and Gabrielle were a hot and “saucy” couple. The banter in and out of the court room was hilarious and the sexual tension was just there.  They only part that I didn’t like was “it ended”. I wanted MORE…… This was a GREAT relaxing read and hilarious to a fault.

I so think I need to give the date rule because I am like Gabrielle, the one night thing is so not for me. A little harmless flirting can go a long way in and out of the courtroom. The best scene was the bar in my opinion when there were passing the note. The “I Love Lucy” reference was off the meter and the funny part was I so thought the same thing after it was stated of course. The investigation part was so what Lucy would have done.

Braden was a protector by nature and did not let his family status go to his head. I was so happy he was laid back and freaky by nature. Gabrielle brought him to his knees FAST….

I want to thank N.M. Silber for this book. I recommend everyone read it and spread the word. Book 2 will be even better. I can not wait for it to be released.

EXCERPT


I quickly finished my coffee and had just started to feel semi-human again when I heard my cell phone start ringing. I froze. Jess swung around and gave me an expectant look.


"Gabrielle! Answer your phone!" she ordered, diving at my purse. She grabbed it and threw a Hail Mary pass across our kitchen that would have had NFL scouts interested. I caught it … and fumbled … but Jess was on it. She threw her body on the bag and thrust her hand in just in time to click answer and pant into the phone like an obscene caller.

"Give me that!" I grabbed it away from her. "Hello?"

"Gabrielle? Are you okay? Was that a dog?"

"Braden? No, that was Jessica. She exerted herself a bit on the way to the phone." I gave her a "what the hell is wrong with you?" look.

"I see. I think. Uh, anyway, I hope it's not too early ..."

"No. I've had my coffee and I'm not even hung-over this morning." I started straightening my pajamas like he could see me. And like it would matter that Betty Boop's ass looked crooked on my nightshirt.

"Are you usually hung-over on Saturday mornings?"

"No! I just meant that I might have gotten a hangover from last night because I don't usually drink a lot. I would have stopped after two beers and a shot but Mark pawned his shot off on me too."

"You do remember that we’re supposed to go out tonight?" he teased.

"I wasn’t drunk!"

"So you remember hooking up?"

"What?" I heard him start laughing. He was kidding. Whew.

"Where did you want to go tonight?" He still sounded amused.

"It's not fancy," I said hesitantly.

"Good. I wear a tie five days a week."

"It's not that far from my apartment and we could walk there if you didn't mind."

"Great, the weather's beautiful."

"It's Middle Eastern food. Is that okay?"

"That's fine."

"You're very easy to get along with outside of court."

"Are you saying that I’m not easy to get along with in court?"

"You can be tough sometimes."

"So can you."

"You’re being very easy right now though."

"Maybe I’m hoping you’ll be easy later." He laughed and I felt myself start to sweat. "I’m teasing you. I said that I would leave everything up to you and I’m fine with all of your suggestions. It just so happens that I like casual, I like walking and I like Middle Eastern food."

"Okay, well if you like walking we could go for a walk after we ate."

"Sure. Did you have somewhere in particular you wanted to go?"

"Yeah, it's close by though. Either you'll appreciate it as much as I do or you'll think I'm kind of nuts but it would probably be better that you knew that going in."

"What time should I pick you up?" he asked, sounding very amused now.

"How about six o'clock? I live in the Chatham. It's just off of Walnut ..."

"I know exactly where it is. I live two blocks away from you."

"Well, that would make a booty call very easy. Oh shit. I said

that out loud too didn't I?" I heard him laugh really hard. Good, hopefully he thought I was joking.

"Gabrielle?"

"Yes?"

"I also like you." I wanted to throw down my phone, jog the two blocks and throw myself into his arms. "Yeah, well I like you too even if you do put my clients in jail. See you later Mr. Prosecutor."

"See you later Ms. Saucy Mouth."

We hung up and I collapsed onto the sofa and starting kicking my legs and making a noise so high-pitched that it probably attracted every canine on the block and was picked up by sonar in the Atlantic. Jess, who had tactfully left me alone, came running back in.

"Jesus, Gabrielle! Are you having a seizure?!"

"Please please please can I keep him mom? I promise I'll take care of him! Oh baby, I’ll take care of him!"

"Good lord. She's finally gone around the bend. Can I have your Manolos when they come to take you away?"

"Jessica, he's so sexy! He’s got such a great sense of humor and he was totally

comfortable with me choosing everything. He even said something kinda sorta romantic. I've heard that such men existed but I've never seen one up close."

"Well, we need to make sure we don't frighten him off. We'll approach him very slowly and speak in quiet gentle tones. Put on some nice perfume and let him sniff you."

"God, I hope he doesn't think I'm nuts after tonight."

"Oh don't worry honey. I'm sure that he already knows that you're nuts."

AUTHOR BIO


Author PicOnce upon a time ... N.M. Silber was a criminal defense attorney who got up each morning, donned her power suit and sensible pumps, downed a gallon of coffee and set out to "fight the good fight" while trying to not go insane. Having a dark sense of humor and a sarcastic wit helped -- a lot. Another thing that helped was reading. As escapism was the goal, she liked to read romance novels, especially really funny ones and really sexy ones. Then one day something beautiful happened -- she read one that was both funny and sexy at the same time. She hung up her power suit, put away her sensible pumps and moved her coffee mug to her computer. Now she writes funny and smutty romance novels herself and she lives happily ever after.

Worth the Effort by Mara Jacobs

When your past meets your present.....

Worth The Effort (Worth Series #4)


BLURB


If it was easy, it wouldn't be worth it.


Deni Casparich has been obsessed with the story of the Brockway Mountain Hermit since she was a kid. Little did she know he was her hottie of a boss.

Sawyer Beck is not the legendary hermit, but having spent the last ten years of his life in near seclusion, he might as well be. Pulled back into real life, Sawyer begins working together with Deni on his engineering firm's big new project. Who knew protractors and slide rules could be so sexy?!

But Sawyer's haunted past and Deni's shaky present are putting up obstacles at every turn. Can these two engineers build on a foundation of more than mutual attraction?

Is their love...Worth The Effort?

REVIEW


I was waiting for this book and was not disappointed. Deni and Sawyer was a match made in heaven. The age difference never mattered because deep down they understood each other on a personal stand point and on an emotional level. The struggles were match and heart warming.


I cried when Sawyer told the story of his wife. I know is had to be hard when the person who loved you could not help. The guilt in his heart was understood by his family and friends but when he ruled it suicide when everyone sugar coated it I pulled out the tissue. Deni knew her role was to hug and comfort the pain. I could have choked him when he deemed himself unable to go through what he went through with his wife when Deni shut down but I also understood.


Deni was a spitfire when needed be, she never held nothing back when she told him exactly how she felt. She was strong and a fighter and started opening up as much as she could without letting everyone in on her health secret. She had hope that is would pass.


All worked out in the end and as book 4 in the series came to a close, I am anticipating book 5. Thank you Mara for another wonderful life experience book. The situations draw you in as a "could be moment". I TOTALLY recommend the entire series a must read.

Everything Bared by Kristine Cayne

Everything Bared


BLURB


Two polar opposites--she's kinky, he's uptight--discover they share a taboo desire that may destroy both their futures.
Firefighter Dani Harris has always wanted a family, but doesn't think it's possible because of her demanding, high-stakes career. Her sex life is as high-adrenaline as her job, and that's just one more thing that makes her unsuitable to be a wife and mother. Her secret kink--exhibitionism--has gotten in the way of more than one relationship. Will she ever find a man who not only shares her wild fantasies, but loves her for them?


Burdened with ensuring the success of the struggling family business, William Caldwell IV needs a wife suited for a CEO--one with money and connections, who can manage his busy social life and raise their 2.5 children. He's got everything all mapped out, but when he meets Dani, a woman who's every kind of wrong, she taps into desires he's only half-recognized and long-suppressed. Suddenly his carefully crafted five-year plan feels as confining as a straightjacket.
As Dani and Will's sexual experimentation escalates, they test the limits of polite society by baring all and risking exposure--an exposure that could cost them their reputations and careers.



REVIEW


Dani has bared her feelings about Will to her first female friend. After a devastating earthquake she found herself as the roommate of her late night dreams. What she did not count on was that she starred in his as well.

William was a man climbing the corporate latter of his family business. Always know for having a "stick up his ass" until the smart mouth firefighter came in and removed it with her whitty ways and sexual kink. I was floored with Will and knew deep down he would come around and not settled for what would be "good for his image". He was drawn to Dani and their little arrangement was not going to work.

Dani was a town hero amongst her peers in the platoon and the world for being a kick-ass K9 rescuer. Her and COCO was a team within themselves. She had deep doubt and self esteem issues from the nagging of her mother and the put down of ex-lovers. Will was her rock even though it was a tough struggle, she opened up her inhibition and allowed him in. Finding out that her had secrets in which he needed to come to terms with too,

They were a match in bliss and relied on the strength of the other to get through the obstacles life threw at them at every turn. I really enjoyed this book 2 in the series but felt there needed to be more. I hope the next story gives us more in the conclusion of the decisions Will MADE FPR THE SAKE OF HIS love for Dani. I suggest everyone start with Aftershocks and work their way to this book because Kristine firemen are OFF THE CHAIN SEXY......

Ella's Turning ? Blog Hop

Ellas Turning What Blog Hop Graphic (1)


 

In honor of helping Author Ella Jade celebrate her 40th Birthday. I would like to share a memorable Birthday of my own. I would choose my 30th because it marked a new beginning in my life. I was storing away the stress, struggle, and bad choices of my 20's and starting something new.

I made a life goal chart that was to be accomplished in the next 5 years and am happy to say I did it every step of the way. From ending a marriage that was emotionally draining to starting my own businesses. That day was filled with laughter, love, and deep cleansing. Don't get me wrong I partied HARD with all the perks of being free. I rented a hotel suite and had a massage therapist, nail tech, and food for me and my closest friends to enjoy being woman and "letting our hair down" so to speak.

I have a couple more years to go to reach the 40 mark and wonder what dreams I will want lived out then. Happy 40th Birthday Ella Jade, I hope you live it to the fullest and reach for the stars.

The Arotas Trilogy by Amy Miles

It is a wonderful thing when you are hooked on a series when you don't even get finished with book 1. That is exactly what happened when my guest blogger, Kimberly Hill started reading "Forbidden". She couldn't but the book down and so here we are with WONDERFUL Reviews from ALL three books.

Forbidden: Book I of the Arotas Trilogy


Forbidden Book 1 in The Arotas Trilogy

Roseline Enescue has been turned immortal against her will by none other than the man she married.  After taking his abuse for centuries, she finally manages to escape. She flees to the US where men are drawn to her and women are jealous.  She makes two friends, Sadie and her brother William.  Then things get strange when she meets Gabriel Marston!

OH MY WORD!  I have LOVED this book.  I enjoy this genera of reading but it definitely has to keep me entertained from the get go.  This book did.  I couldn’t put it down.  It was very well written and keeps your attention.  I have already shared with my book club, family, and friends.  I would recommend this book to anyone!  Definitely a must read!

Reckoning: Book II of the Arotas Trilogy


Reckoning Book 2 The Arotas Trilogy

In the second book of The Arotas Trilogy, Roseline ends up forming a truce with Nicolae.  They go looking for Fane and try to find out exactly about this prophecy that Gabriel is involved in. What exactly will they find out?

I am so addicted to this series.  I was so shocked with this one.  I am trying to decide what I think about one of the new characters. I loved him at first, and then wanted to reach through the kindle and strangle him. LOL,  I am so looking forward to reading book 3!

Redemption Book 3 Arotas Trilogy

Roseline is going through some changes since Lucien has taken her.  Malachi’s blood slows the process of her changes but doesn’t stop it.  She needs help and fast.  Can she make it to Gabriel before the changes over take her?

Gabriel is finishing up his tasks and then he is going to be re-united with Roseline.  But what will happen when he finds her?

This story had some sad parts.  But the story was great.  When Fane finds Roseline at Torrent, I was totally shocked with the way he found her.  The battle was intense and well written.  It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  It ended leaving me hopeful that there will be more to come for Roseline and Gabriel.

Desperate to break free…

I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn.

I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…

Emerge by S.E. Hall

Choices of the HEART

REVIEW


I was drawn into Laney and Evans story and was happy when they finally got together right before prom. It was like the classic fairytale but with a tragic ending. I can honestly say I did not understand her reason for the break-up before going to college but related on a personal level because I was Laney years ago.

Evan was TRUE about his feelings from the beginning and I adored him and his perseverance to be with the woman of his dreams. He did everything to make things right even down routing his life and transferring schools with no scholarship or anything. To get there and come head to head with his worse fears. He never claimed to be a saint but never gave his heart or soul to another in hopes of being with his one true love.

Laney was swept off her feet by the attention of feeling lonely in a new place. Battling emotional decisions drove her in the arms of the man that can show her the world and gave it without second thought. Giving less thought to the man who has been by her side from the beginning and vowed his LOVE for her with no ending in sight.

Never backing down from a challenge of getting what he want the sexy Dane set out on a mission to WIN her heart and never let her go. Laney had a choice to either embrace the new her or remain the person she was before and stay with what was comfortable. I was NOT happy at all with her choice because in reality Evan never had a fighting chance. In my opinion Dane should have backed off when he saw the push and pull of Laney's emotions.

I am awaiting book 2 because Evan needs to find his HEA because his PLAN A although very heart felt was an epic fail.  He has so much love to give to that special deserving someone. The author did a wonderful job in the YA. The emotional back and forth of growing up and spreading your wings when going to college is what many experience.


BLURB


Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her since Evan, her best friend, has coveted her since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.

Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an animal all his own.

A story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.

Sink or Swim Blog Tour

SoS BT banner


REVIEW


This book was wonderful. It showed how in trying to save one or many lives you lose yourself in the process. Trying to survive become a rehearsed chore that still in the end leave you fighting for you last breath. It takes the one in which you are trying to protect to help you swim to shore and be the person in which they say deep down. A real tear jerker.


Allie was a torn soul throughout the book but her LOVE for Dean as well as for her mother in which she resented for many reasons caused her to lose who she was to an abusive father who knew no ends. Dean was on a mission to seek truth as well and protect and nurture Allie in her time of need. I was proud of him over coming the battle to respect her wishes as well as keep her safe. In the end keeping her safe is what won out.


Jamie did an excellent job in demonstrating the struggles of a battered child and mother in a situation that can only lead to death. For strength if you are going through similar situation, I STRONGLY suggest this book.


Sink or Swim ebooklg


BLURB


There are some things you just can't walk away from.


When sleeping in vacant warehouses and dark alleys becomes preferable to living at home, something is seriously wrong. But when word reaches Allie that her mother is facing a life threatening illness, she has no choice but to return to the place of nightmares. Leaving wasn't a choice, it was a necessity, and if returning hadn't been equally necessary, Allie never would have set foot back inside that hell-hole.

Dean is no stranger to hardship, but the day Allie walked out of his life, taking his heart right along with her, was hands-down the most frustrating. Six months later, she's back and Dean refuses to rest until he figures out exactly what the hell happened.

Now, Allie's drowning. Drowning in lies. Drowning in the truth. Drowning in pain, and anger, and fear. But there comes a time when every drowning person must decide whether they will . . . Sink or Swim?

 EXCERPT


"How long? How long has this been going on?"


"Since I was about...twelve-ish." That sounded about right.


"Christ," Dean breathed, and she could see his mind working, Remembering. "All of those times. The bumps... bruises...scrapes. That time you broke your arm riding your bike. That was him, wasn't it?"


He managed to keep his voice even, but his knuckles were white from how hard he was gripping the table. Allie just nodded. He knew and there was no use hiding anything anymore. It was time to go all in. Show him just how gutless she really was.
