I’m a f*cking bastard.

I f*ck girls to forget about her.

She’s the girl I’m not supposed to want … my step-sister.

She hates me for what I’ve done.

I ruined her life.

Now I’m a Motocross racer. A winner. A player. A bastard.

But being a bastard comes with bad press.

Lucky for me Emily is a PR agent.

When she comes to work for me, I’ll make her remember why she once wanted me too.

She can’t say no … she needs me to keep her job, and I need her to f*ck me.

One way or another, she will be mine again.

Excerpt

“See?” I hold up the towel, staring straight into his eyes, so I can stop myself from accidentally letting my eyes wander off toward … I don’t know. 

He cocks his head and smiles. “Wow, I did not expect that from you, sis.” 

“I’m not your sis, Chris.” I dangle the towel in front of him. “Want this back? Say you won’t call me that again.” 

Instead of admitting defeat, he takes another step in my direction, catching me off guard. “Oh, no, you can keep it. I feel perfectly fine like this. With the exception of one thing.” He takes another step, making me lean back as far as I can without giving up my space and showing him that I am actually avoiding coming into contact with him. Who knows what will happen when he touches me. Actually, I do, and it isn’t good. It’s wrong. So wrong … 

“You,” he growls, and then he puts his arm around my back and pulls me in. 

I can feel his length against my pants, and I hope I didn’t dream it up that I feel it growing. Holy fuck. 

“Chris!” I shout. 

“What? Afraid?” he muses, leaning in with a smirk to taunt me. 

“Get off me.” 

“You used to beg me to do the opposite,” he says, biting his lip, which sends a bolt of heat through my veins. Why does he always have to be so vexing? 

“You’re just playing me,” I say, unwrapping myself from his arms. 

“No, I’m not, but you are.” 

“Stop with the semantics.” I throw the towel back at him. “And put this on. I’d rather not get another dick slap.” 

He laughs. “Guess that makes me the winner of this little bet.” 

“There’s no bet here,” I say. “No game. Just me proving that I’m fine with being your PR rep.” 

“Of course, you are …” 

“Hey, do you want me to do this or not?” I ask, raising a brow. He wraps the towel around his waist again, which makes it easier for me to breathe. “Hell yeah, I want you.”

She’s been Immortal Angel’s number one groupie for years, and she’s been privy to the out-of-control lifestyle of their radical drummer.

 Tanya’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                        Wow! I just got finished reading The Prince of Punk Rock and I really enjoyed this very HOT read by Jenna Galicki. If you decide that you would like to read this book be warned there is some very HOT male on male action. Tommy Blade is married to Jessie and he is bisexual. He finds that he has fallen in love with the lead singer Angel Garcia in the Immortal Angel band. Jessie has known that Tommie was bi and she wants to keep her man so she lets Angel in their marriage and finds she is falling in love with Angel. But, Angel is gay and really wants no part of Jessie sexually although, they do fool around a bit. I do feel that Jessie has to keep making concessions in her marriage because she doesn’t want to lose Tommy and I hope that she actually becomes a stronger person in the next book. That is enough of the story telling because I don’t do spoilers but, you should get the drift.I really liked the story and lord knows The Prince of Punk Rock is a VERY HOT read! I had to fan myself a few times because it is very steamy! The book ends on a little cliffie (not a major one) Fortunately for me I am ready to get started reading book 2 in the Radical Rock Stars Series and it is out and ready for me to start. I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review and I give The Prince of Punk Rock 4.5 stars. Now it is time for me to start reading “Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock Stars Book 2).                                 Nikki K’s 4.5 Star Review                                                                             The Prince of Punk Rock tells a story of unconventional love, jealousy, and friendship. Sometimes being in love with someone means loving them and trusting them enough to allow someone else to share their heart and your bed. Jesse sees that Tommy loves her, but she also sees he needs more. 

Never wanting to label Tommy’s sexual proclivities, Jesse suggests bringing in a third to feed Tommy’s hunger. Not until Tommy joins the band Immortal Angel, do they realize his true nature is bisexual. Joining this Punk Rock band fills more than Tommy’s musical soul, it fills the empty part of his heart. The part that only Angel can fill. 

As a lover of both Rocker Romance and M/M, I was hooked by this book. Author Jenna Galicki has written a sexy, yet difficult story. The emotions, this book elicit run the gamut from lust to hate. More than once I was moved to tears by the turmoil ever present in the lives of this open-minded trio.

I really enjoyed The Price of Punk Rock and the underlying theme of love, trust, and tolerance. I rate this book a 4.5.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review

Theresa’s Review: 3.5 Stars                                                                          Tommy is in a band. Tommy is bisexual, and his wife Jessi allows him to enjoy other men. Her rule is the encounters can only be one-night stands. Only she can have his heart. This arrangement seems to work for them, and it’s their secret. Through certain circumstances, Angel Garcia enters their lives, and nothing is the same. Tommy is immediately attracted to Angel, and the feeling is mutual. Jessi sees this isn’t like Tommy’s usual hook-ups. She sees Angel as a threat to their marriage, and is not happy about him being around. Until she finds herself falling for the loud and proud rocker.

A marriage with two people is tough enough, add a third, and it’s even tougher. Through all the ups and downs, these three people discover things about themselves and each other. Maybe they were meant to be together. I really enjoy reading M/M books, and this one was definitely different. I liked the rocker storyline. And the sex was really, really hot!

The Prince of Punk Rock is the first book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 3.5 stars.                                                                                                                                       Lita’s Review: 3.0 stars                                                                                            The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Star #1) by Jenna Galicki

Book one introduces the readers to Tommy Blade and his wife Jessi. Tommy is a gifted guitarist and is able to fulfill his dream of playing in a band due to wife. Jessi is the rock of the family and has done everything she can to make Tommy’s dream come true. She is his biggest cheerleader so much so she is the only one with a job and even quit fashion school in her last semester. Jessi is the only woman he has ever been with and loves her dearly, however Tommy likes sleeping with men.  When a new band is looking for a new guitarist Tommy ends up playing for Immortal Angels. The front man for the band is charismatic Angel Garcia and he is openly gay. Angel has an eye for Tommy and their chemistry on stage is something to behold. They both feel the electricity between each other and they definitely want to explore their relationship. Because Jessi loves Tommy so much she has given her blessings to bring Angel not only into their bed but their family. This is their story. It is a strange and emotionally taxing relationship considering Jessi loves Tommy with all her heart and likes Angel physically, Tommy loves both Jessi and Angel physically and emotionally and because he is truly gay he loves Tommy to the utmost but Jessi physically he cannot stand the touch of her but loves her emotionally. This is their struggle especially for Tommy who is stuck in the middle. I can say I struggle with what Jessi was willing to endure to make Tommy happy. Definitely could not get next to what she put up with but I can say the author’s graphic scenes between the 3 of them was something. I give this story 3 stars.

 Tanya’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                              Let me just say I am really enjoying reading the Radical Rock Stars Series. What you need to know is that this is a menage book with MMF, MF, MM erotic romance. If this isn’t what you like to read then don’t buy the book.Between a Rock and a Hard Place is the continuation of Tommy & Jessie Blade & Angel Garcia. Theirs is not a typical relationship. Tommy is bisexual and married to Jessie. Angel is the third in their marriage. Angel is gay he really doesn’t want to do much with Jessie although he has fooled around a little with her too and actually more in this book than in the first book in this series. What they find is that it isn’t easy to make a relationship like this work. They all have to get on the same page and all 3 have to work at making this relationship arrangement work. Oh and while they are working on their marriage the sexual encounters are Hot, Hot, Hot! Between a Rock and a Hard Place is about conflicts & jealousy. Life is full of “tough choices” and the 3 or them have to work at keeping their relationship intact. I can see why this might be a problem. I got my HEA although, their story will continue in Punk Rock Resurrection. I received a complimentary copy of Between a Rock and a Hard Place for an honest review and I give this story 4.5 stars.    

Nikki K’s Review: 4 Stars

The Sexy Trio of Jesse, Tommy, and Angel return in the 2nd edition of Radical Rock Stars Series. 

Immortal Angel has hit the big time. Tommy, Angel and the rest of Immortal Angel are about to embark on their first World Tour. Jesse has been a part of Tommy’s musical career since the beginning.  She has given up her dreams to help him pursue his.  The only problem is, Angel was never HER dream.

When Jesse realizes her unique fashions for the band have sparked interest with the public, she decides it’s her turn. Rather then following Tommy and Angel to Asia, Jesse follows her dream. She returns to college to get her degree in Fashion design. Will Jesse’s step towards her goal of opening her own boutique and designing her own line of clothing cause a rift between her and Tommy? Or will it bring them closer?

Author Jenna Galicki has once again infused heavy emotions with deep desire certain to keep the reader wanting more. The Love affair between Tommy and Jesse is stressed in this edition and Jenna shows the ugly side of poly relationships. That being said, the sex scenes in Between a Rock and a Hard Place left me needing to be near a hard place 😉 

If like me you are into tatted, sexy rocker dudes, and emotional rollercoasters, then this book is sure to strike a chord. 

I really enjoy reading about Jenna’s punk rockers and I give this book 4 stars. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.

Theresa’s Review: 3.5 stars                                                                        And so the story from The Prince of Punk Rock continues. The band’s success continues, and they’re about to go on a world tour. Bad news: Jessi has to miss the beginning of this tour, and that means Tommy and Angel are on their own.

When Jessi makes it back to the guys, they’ve got their groove and routine going, and Jessi feels out of place. She doesn’t like it, and is resentful of the relationship. Angel does his best to keep everyone happy, but sometimes fails miserably. Anything worth having usually takes a lot of work. For me, this book was way more emotional. You get to really see and feel their struggles, worries, but there is some fun. After all, they are rockers!! On top of their burgeoning superstar status, can they really handle all the work this relationship will no doubt require?

Between a Rock and a Hard Place is the second book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 3.5 stars.                                                                                                                                      Lita’s Review: 3.5 Stars                                                                       Between A Rock and A Hard Place (Radical Rock #2) by Jenna Galicki

Bok 2 is a continuation of their story. Immortal Angels has made it big and is getting ready to embark on a tour of Asia. There is one problem Jessi will not be able to make the tour since she has decided to do something for herself. She has went back to finish her fashion degree and wants to open her own store with her own creations. While at home in the States she has to deal with being home trying to focus on her schooling she has to endure photos in the papers with captions insinuating things regarding Tommy and Angel being together without their wife. Once she joins the European part of their world tour the pressures of getting her store open, still helping with working with the band and her insecurities of the time Angel and Tommy spent together are taking a toll on their relationship. Than when the band’s new manager is putting pressure on them to cut an album while on tour which leaves Jessi by herself while Angel and Tommy are forced to spent more time without her she is almost at wits end. When she is told there are issues at her store she goes back to the States without telling Tommy she was leaving. This action causes a chain reaction that could destroy the band in the middle of the tour and the album. This is what they go through to save their family. There are more graphic sex scenes between the 3 of them and they are quite hot. I give this story 3.5 stars.

Tanya’s Review:  4.5 stars                                                                        Wow I just finished reading Punk Rock Resurrection. This is Damian Hardy & Alyss Taylor story. I really felt for Damian Hardy. He later changes his name and you will see why once you read this book. He had a horrible life growing up with a mother that never loved him and felt he was an imposition. His mother kicked him out on his 18th birthday. Alyssa is one bad a** woman. She is a strong woman and I loved her character. And, the story continues from there. I can’t say more because I don’t do spoilers. At least I don’t intend to. Damian is really a very nice guy with a lot of anguish! Oh and really “Elvira” I loved her. (I can’t say who or what she is because again no spoilers).I really enjoyed reading this book. And as Jenna said you could read it as a standalone but, why would you because you will understand more about the characters that were written in the first 2 books. #1The Prince of Punk Rock and #2Between A Rock and A Hard Place. This book originally was an ARC for me. But, when I found out it was also on Kindle Unlimited I also got it through Amazon so that it could be a verified purchase. Anything to help out our Author friends. I give Punk Rock Resurrection 4.5 stars.

Oh and another book will be out soon by Jenna Galicki: Radical Rock Stars, Book 4 and this one is about Jimmy Wilder Coming Fall 2015. 🙂                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Theresa’s Review: 4.0 stars                                                               Damien Diamond is the bassist for Immortal Angels. He had a rough upbringing, and until Angel helps pull him from his black hole of drugs and alcohol, he was still having a hard time with life.

Alyssa is exactly what Damien needs; someone who isn’t impressed with his persona and will tell him exactly what’s on her mind. She sees him for who he really is, not that hardened, badass bassist. Without giving too much away, Alyssa allows Damien to put his tough act on the shelf for a bit while she manages things. He’s been through so much, and he finally finds a way to deal with his past without chemical dependency.

More hot sex and a really good story line. You get to see where Immortal Angels began. I kinda hoped Damien was getting his own story when I read the previous books in this series, and I was pleased to find out he did.

Out of the entire series, this is definitely my favorite. Punk Rock Resurrection is the third book in the Radical Rock Stars series.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 4 stars.                                                                                                                                                    Lita’s Review: 4.5 stars                                                                              
                                                                                                                   

Punk Rock Resurrection (Radical Rock Star #3) by Jenna GalickiBook 3 is the story of Immortal Angels bass guitarist Damian Diamond and how he met Angel, his wife and why his wife will leave him if he gets back involved with drugs and alcohol. Damian has had a hard life. Growing up he had to endure an alcoholic mother who was distant and cold. She was emotionally and physically abusive. At a certain age his only salvation was a bass guitar which he worked for at the local music store and used as a life preserver in a life of hell. Unfortunately he also found his mother’s pills and alcohol as a way to deal with the pain. Once his mother put him out at the age of 18 he found himself living on the streets. It was on the streets his friendship with Angel had been cemented. Playing the bass for the Immortal Angels, his friendship with Angel and his job at the tattoo parlor where he worked was all he had in his life. One day while at his job at the Tattoo parlor the new piercer show up Alyssa. Damian is smitten with her. This is his story of how he made Alyssa his wife and how he was able to get clean. Damian is a heart wrenching story when you learn what he had to endure and the head trips his mother placed on him. My heart went out to him and I loved his journey to finding love with Alyssa. I can say I enjoyed this book the best out of the 3 and I am looking forward to the next book which is the drummer’s story Jimmy. I give this story 4.5 Stars.    

  Nikki K’s review: 4.0 OOOO’s (O’s for Orgasms)

PUNK ROCK RESURRECTION Radical Rock Stars: Book Three Author: Jenna Galicki The old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” certainly works for Damien Hardy. His PUNK ROCK image would lead one to think he is no more than a rebellious irresponsible punk. In reality he is a sweet, gentle musician who happens to like blue mohawks and the Ramones. Damien’s childhood was lacking in many ways but most of all in love. Never did he ever think love would be a factor in his life, unless you’re talking about the love of his bass guitar. Alyssa Taylor is a goth goddess with a sadistic sensibility. A one time nursing student, she finds she has a penchant for sticking people with needles. Realizing her talents are better served in a nontraditional profession, Alyssa embarks on a career as a piercer in a Tattoo studio. The same studio that Damien works in for tips and free ink. As a free spirit, Alyssa was not looking for love or a relationship, but she didn’t run from it when she found it. As soon as the two meet, it’s instant chemistry. Never is the question “if”, but only “when”?! When will their punk and goth worlds collide? Will they be able to overcome Damien’s demon’s from his past. Is Alyssa able to overlook the black heart displayed on his chest in favor of the living man beneath the colorful surface? My only critique is that the level of pain and torment that Damien displays seems disproportionate to the details we are given of his past. I know it is macabre to say I was looking for the real pain to be brought to the surface, but that’s what I did. I would have liked a more detailed account of the real abuse he suffered. It would have made his actions more understandable. However, the depth of his emotional state is very evident and his need for love and acceptance is heartbreaking. Overall I enjoyed the story of Alyssa and Damien’s blossoming love. While I love the “Alpha males”, seeing a vulnerable man able to let his submissive side be shown was hot. When he allows Alyssa to take command of their sex life, I must admit to being nearly as excited as Damien. If you like hot tattooed rockers, kinky sex and a Domme with a soft side, you’ll really enjoy Punk Rock Resurrection. ** I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

Irons by MJ Fields 


Jax I was born and bred to be the man I am today. My father and his father were both graduates from The United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Both went on to become helicopter pilots. Both had seen plenty of action. Both had met and caused devastation. Both men, who I respect more above all, had served and protected the United States and her people honorably for decades.

My best friend, William Cruz, who attended the academy with me, had flown beside me, had lived the same life as I had and shared the same ambitions in life, was gone now. This was not part of the plan. Will and I were supposed to have each other’s backs, support each other and never let anything supersede our bond.

Francesca

I sat on Norfolk Beach needing to feel close to him on the anniversary of his death. It was a beautiful day in May and I was cutting class. I had done the same every year since he passed.

Jaxson Irons was only supposed to be in Pensacola for a year. But now three years later I still hadn’t heard from him. I saw a man running down the beach and I knew immediately who it was.

Jaxson didn’t respond the way I had dreamed he would. He told me we would catch up someday soon. I stood and watched until he was gone.

Thump, thump. I placed my hand on my chest as I felt my heart beat again for what felt like the first time in three years. Thump, thump. I felt the blood moving quickly through my body. It’s heat once again present. Thump, thump. I looked up at the sky and let out a breath. A breath that I had been holding forever. Thump, thump.

I felt tears fall down my face as I raised my hands in the air and laughed out loud.

Love Survives by Jennifer Foor

I know this because it’s my story.

The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we’d find each other again. I won’t sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into her life.

Sometimes love isn’t enough.

For me, it took some bad experiences, a little fate, and a lot of time.

This book follows Love’s Suicide. It can be read by itself as a stand alone.

Release Day – Under My Skin by J. Kenner

undermyskin-rd

Jackson and Sylvia are back in the third and final part of J. Kenner’s sizzling erotic trilogy. You definitely don’t want to miss how their story ends!

undermyskinAbout UNDER MY SKIN

Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks are back in the powerful finale of a provocative, sizzling-hot new erotic trilogy set in the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, andComplete Me.

He’s the only man I’ve ever loved, and the one man I can’t bear to lose.

Jackson Steele is my light in this world. Charismatic, bold, and always in control, he knows what he wants and how to get it—and absolutely nothing stands in his way. His hold on me is magnetic, his claim on me complete, his kiss my ultimate escape.

We both harbor dark secrets that could tear our lives apart. Though we’ve tried to bury our pasts, there are certain people who won’t let us forget. But the closer danger comes, the brighter the fire between us burns—our ecstasy consuming and soothing us both.

There’s no telling what lies ahead, but I know that Jackson never gives in without a fight. I’d do anything he wants to keep him safe, give him anything he needs. And now that we’re in deep, nothing can make me run.

Under My Skin is intended for mature audiences.

Nikki K’s Review

This couple has gone through hell to be together, and they prove once again in Under My Skin that nothing can stand in their way. The revelation of secrets in the first story threatened to tear them apart, and in this edition, the threat of those secrets going public pushes their limits, but their love is one for the ages.

Jackson and Sylvia continue to have a sex life that makes me swoon. Sylvia is able to give more of herself over to Jackson, and he willingly accepts. When life gets too dark and intense, they lock the world out and find solace in each others arms.
One of the reasons I am drawn to the Stark Novels is the intrigue wrapped up in the love story. And this book does not disappoint.

That being said, I have to admit I enjoyed Say My Name more than this book. However, this is still a good read. I must also confess, I have not read the second book as I did not have time to fit it in prior to reading this one. While I may have missed some details from the second book, It was very easy for me to follow the storyline.

Throughout the book, I found myself having aha moments plot points from the trilogy are revealed and questions answered. J Kenner has done a superb job of tying up all of the loose ends and leaving no stone unturned. I thank the author for finishing this trilogy as she did; it ended as I would have hoped.

I rate this book a solid 4 stars and recommend it to anyone with a penchant for angsty, sexy love stories.

EXCERPT

She slams the door shut, the limo pulls back out onto the street, and I am left beside Jackson who sits perfectly, dangerously still.

I swallow, my skin prickling from the rising heat.

I’m breathing hard, my breasts rising and falling. My skin is warm, and beads of perspiration have gathered at the nape of my neck.

He turns his head slowly, his eyes meeting mine, wild and feral and hard. There’s a hungry glint to them, and for a moment I fear that he will tear me to pieces. That I will truly stand as proxy for the bastards who leaked the news. For the fear that I know must be consuming him, just as it is consuming me.

But haven’t I repeatedly told him that I can handle it, no matter how bad it gets? That I will be his release valve, his safety net?

That I’ll willingly take in his pain—and then we’ll turn it around into passion.

I am still holding his gaze, and I feel locked in place simply from the force of his will. He has not touched me, and though we haven’t spoken, I know that he will not until I acquiesce. Not tonight. Not when he needs to push. To go as far as he needs, and then some.

“Yes,” I say.

A muscle twitches in his cheek, but he doesn’t otherwise move, nor does he say a word to me. He simply watches me for one beat, then another. It is as if he is sizing me up, testing my resolve. I stay where I am, looking back at him. But slowly—very slowly—I part my thighs.

Jackson sucks in a breath through his nose. Then he twists at the waist so that he can reach the intercom button. He jams his finger down on it.

“Don’t go home, Edward.” His voice is hard. Tight with control. “Just drive. I don’t care where. Just drive until I tell you to stop.”

Cover Reveal: Tiger Lily Part 3 by Amélie S. Duncan


Book: Tiger Lily (part 3)

Author: Amélie S. Duncan

Genre: erotic romance

Releases September 8th
Synopsis:

Lily loves Jonas, but implicit trust is another matter. After all they’ve been through, she still can’t believe he’ll stay no matter how deep or dark her secrets are. With her ex, Declan, up to his worst, Lily’s embarrassed and ashamed…but she’s once again underestimated Jonas. He has brains as well as beauty. With the same ruthlessness he uses to dispatch his business rivals, he vows to annihilate Declan.  

Lily is glad to relinquish control. Jonas is determined to personally oversee her recovery and she lets him. She’s still too weak to deal with the chaos that’s become her life. Jonas whisks her away to a secluded luxury loft in Tribeca and pampers her with sensual decadence. Every caress, every lingering honey-sweet kiss they share says he loves her—even the way he possesses her body in the sultry heat of the night…but will Jonas commit? Will he ever be able to say those three little words she craves to hear from him?  
Reviews by Tanya & Shannon:
Yes Shannon and I were the lucky ones and got to read Tiger Lily already!
Tanya’s Review: 5.0 ★★★★★

Tiger Lily is the wondrous story about of course Tiger Lily. I have loved each story in this Trilogy.

The story with Jonas & Lily continues in the last book of this trilogy. I have to say that I love all the characters that Amélie S. Duncan has written in Tiger Lily. Well almost all. Isn’t there always someone you love to hate in a story! Well of course there are 2 not very nice people and one of them is Declan, Lily’s ex-fiancé. And, the other person I can’t say because you just need to read this book. But, you as the reader will need to start at the beginning. With Tiger Lily #1. This book is not a stand alone!

I always take some notes while reading so I won’t forget about them and here are a few of my notes that I took.

→I now need to read Mary’s & Ian’s Story! And, Mary can stop pretending she isn’t interested in Ian! Amélie please write more so I will know their story.

→I love that Dani (ex wife to Jonas & mother to Paul) can be such good friends with Lily & Jonas.

→Paul is such a charmer just like dad.

Anyway I hope those were little teases will make you curious and you will want to read this series and of course Tiger Lily #3.

This ARC was a complementary gift for an honest review. I love this author and I hope that you will love Tiger Lily as much as I did. I can’t wait to read more books by Amélie S. Duncan.

Shannon’s Review: 4.0 ★★★★
Review of Tiger Lily #3 by Amelie Duncan

I would like to thank Amelie Duncan for the opportunity to read Tiger Lily part 3. I have loved this series from the very beginning and she does not disappoint with this book either as it’s the continuation of Jonas and Lily’s story. I absolutely loved that Lily was a much stronger woman in this installment while Jonas exposed his more vulnerable side.  I have found myself completely invested in each character including the supporting ones. I would love to read more about Paul (Jonas’s son) after he has aged some. Although he has given us a glimpse as to what a teenaged Jonas may have been like.  I also really enjoyed the teasing of a story between Mary and Ian.

I give 4 stars to Tiger Lily part #3 and can’t wait to see what Amelie Duncan comes up with next.

*I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Cover Reveal: SWELTER by Nina G. Jones

Author: Nina G. Jones

Genre: Erotic Romance

Release Date: October 1, 2015

Synopsis

I married the right brother.

At least that’s what I tell myself at night, when I stare at the ceiling and listen to the rhythm of the grandfather clock down the hall. It never feels like the mere passage of time, but a countdown towards something inevitable.

Bobby Lightly is selfish, irresponsible, and careless. I haven’t seen him since the day I married his brother. He slipped out during the wedding reception without a word.

A year later, I heard Bobby was drafted to Korea. He never said goodbye to anyone. Never sent a letter. We had all come to terms with the fact that he was probably dead somewhere, either a victim of the war or its aftermath.

That is, until in the midst of an unrelenting heatwave, he showed up at the doorstep of the house I lived in with his brother.

Everyone thinks I’m cruel. Everyone thinks I should be easy on him. They think I don’t understand him. They all think I hate him.

But what no one understands is that it was Bobby who broke my heart.

And I think he’s back to do it again.

Excerpt

“What do you want me to do?” I yelled frustratedly. “Pack my bags and go to India? Life’s not that easy. We’re not all you. We don’t all just walk away from our responsibilities.” I immediately regretted those last words, recalling the scar on his shoulder. There were some responsibilities Bobby faced when others would have run.

“It’s not about what I want you to do, Lil. What do you want?”

What I wanted was no longer relevant. It was too late for what I wanted.

“You keep taking that shit and one day you are going to wake up and realize you slept your whole life away. There may be people who need that, but you are not one of them. Let yourself feel it all. The good. The bad. The fucking great. Don’t imprison yourself.”

I knew he was right, but I had grown comfortable in the numbness. Yet there was something luxurious about the pain I felt upon Bobby’s return. It was rich and textured. I could feel it in my bones and my chest and on my skin. I could taste it. I could feel again. And feeling the pain also gave me room to feel alive.

“If you keep doing this, how are you any different than Rory? We want to get him better, right? Well the changes start with us. I’m back and trust me, that wasn’t easy for me. And now you’ve gotta bring yourself back.”

I swallowed sharply, preparing myself to say goodbye to my dear friend. A friend who had always been there. More than my sister, or mother, or Barbie could be. It understood my fears, my insecurities, the things I had sacrificed. It knew my secrets. I never had to explain myself to it. It never judged.

“Fine,” I surrendered. But I clutched the bottle tighter in my hands than ever before.

Bobby’s body language relaxed as he glanced over to me and opened his palm. “Gimme.”

“What? Now you want ‘em?”

“Don’t be an ass, Lil.”

I sneered at Bobby, slamming the bottle in his palm. The pills tried to seduce me one last time as I heard them dance in their container.
