More Than This #1
*Mikayla*

In one night my fairytale ended.
 Or it may have begun.
 This is my story of friendship and love, heartbreak and desire, and the strength to show weakness.

*Jake*

One night I met a girl. 
A sad and broken girl, but one more beautiful than any other.
 She laughed through her sadness, while I loved through her heartbreak.

*This is our story of a maybe ever after.*
He was right. 
It made no difference whether it was 6 months or 6 years. 
I couldn’t undo what had been done. 
I couldn’t change the future.

I couldn’t even predict it.

It was one night.

One night when everything changed.

It was so much more than just the betrayal.
 It was the Tragedy. 
The Deaths. 
The Murders.

But it was also that feeling. 
The feeling of falling.

More Than Her #2

"For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction." 

 For every choice you make there are rewards, or there are consequences. 
It was my choice to walk away the first time.
 And my choice to chase her the second.
 But sometimes you don't get a choice, and all you get are the consequences.

 "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”  

Unless that someone is Logan Matthews.
 Because loving him didn't give me the strength to walk away. 
It didn't give me the courage to fight for him. 
And when it was over, all it gave me was a broken heart.

More Than Him #3

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." - Marianne Williamson

We live in a world of darkness and shadows, where monsters hide and aim to ruin.

And they did. 
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.

But now we're back. 
And we're fighting.

Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.

MORE THAN FOREVER #4
-LUCY-

There is a love so fierce it cannot be measured.
 A heart so strong it will never slow.
 There is a promise so sure it can never lie.
 He promised me that love forever.
 Even when it wasn't enough.

-CAMERON-

Forever. Everlasting. Eternal. 
There is no measure of time.
 No sounds of the ticking of a clock.
 Just the rising and falling of the sun. 
And our own sense of forever.

But our forever isn't always.

Enjoy this morsel of Marla and Beau’s story and check out Forever Branded available May 23rd or pre-order now.

Beau:

Life had offered me a pretty sweet ride. I had money, status and privilege. It bought me whatever I wanted, excused any indiscretion and included me in a VIP world.

But I didn’t give a shit.

None of it really mattered.

I’d lived for years in a fog after Marla broke up with me only to resurface when I had a car accident. It cost me my hockey career, my leg shattering as I wrapped my Ferrari F50 around a tree.

I was lucky to walk after that.

Having a near death experience scared me enough to straighten out my life.

I cut out the heavy partying and channeled my energy into becoming a workaholic and a fuckaholic. When I wasn’t at the office or working out, I was screwing every hot woman in Baltimore, trying to get Marla out of my head.

I could still remember how her soft skin tasted, the breathy, pitched moans she made as we went at it. It haunted me at times, even in the middle of a great fuck.

Marla was my first.

For everything.

I’d loved her so hard, I’d come apart at the seams when she left me.

I’d never been the same since.

Now, I just wanted to punish her.

Especially after seeing her at that party.

After all these years, she still took my breath away as she stood there wide-eyed. My blood ran hot and I wanted to make her squeal like the naughty girl she was hiding under that modest black dress she wore.

A rush of dirty flashbacks ran through my mind, mostly of her opening wide and welcoming me in. I had to control my first instinct to run over, scoop her up and lay a hard kiss on her sweet, lush mouth.

I had never gotten over her.

I knew it. I lived with it.

I should have been able to let her go and move on.

But she became ground zero for me when she blasted a hole the size of Texas in my heart. For now, I would settle for fucking her up, the way she had so easily done to me.

After I left the party and dumped the disappointed red-head back at her apartment, I sped off in my bright blue Bugatti Veyron as I high-tailed it across town. I had better things to do than waste my time dealing with her shit anyway. She was starting to look at me like we were more than fuck buddies.

We weren’t ever going to be more than that.

I would never trust a woman, again.

Not worth it.

I headed back to the Gators headquarters, where I conducted most of my business. Located in a high-rise, I keyed in my code and made my way up to the fifty-second floor in my private elevator.

As I set foot into the Gators office, everybody perked up.

The boss was in.

I passed a couple of women smiling in my direction, while men nodded in respect, through the glass plated walls of their offices.

Power was good.

Walking into my spacious office that overlooked the scenic ocean front, I was determined to dig up dirt on Marla. I had a million other projects that demanded my attention, but I didn’t care.

“Get Mitch on the phone for me, Donna,” I said to my secretary, taking off my jacket and throwing it on one of the leather high back chairs in front of my desk.

“You got it. Want some coffee?” she asked as I paced back and forth, trying to get ahold of myself.

Marla had me all whipped up. I could barely think straight.

“Sure.” I ran my hand through my hair, trying to settle my jets, wondering why that girl always got under my skin.

Donna brought me a cup of Joe, moseying in like she had all the time in the world. She was in her mid-fifties, with her red hair in a French twist, dressed like she was Peggy on the show Mad Men. She wasn’t crazy about technology, but she was the best damn secretary I could ask for —sharp as a tack, didn’t miss much, and she kept things running smoothly. Just what I liked.

“What’s got you all worked up?” she asked as she watched me pace.

“You don’t want to know.”

“Mm-hmm,” she said, studying me with her perceptive light blue gaze “I bet it’s a woman.”

“It might be…but you’ll never know.”

“Smart ass.”

I grinned. “You always keep it real, Donna.”

“Someone has to,” she shot back with a grin, turning around and heading toward the front of the office. A couple of seconds later, she shouted, “Mitch on line one,” as I grabbed the phone and sat down behind my big mahogany desk.

“What do you need?” my head of security asked as soon as he heard my voice.

“I need you to do some research for me.”

“On who?”

“Marla Matthews. I want everything on her. Leave no stone unturned.”

“Got it boss.”

I slammed down the phone and sat back in my black leather office chair. I lit a cigar, put my feet on my desk and thought about what had just happened.

God-damn Marla Matthews.

Still the most beautiful woman I had ever seen.

Curvy, sensuous, and hot.

She still had it, after all these years.

Twenty-two god-damn years.

I figured she’d be married with two kids by now.

But she’d been at the party all by herself.

Why?

It didn’t make sense.

I needed to know why she wasn’t married and being taken care of by another man. My gut clenched as I thought about the last time I saw her. She said some horrible things that I would never forgive her for.

I had been completely fooled by her innocent do-gooder act. But underneath her sweet veneer was a heartless woman who didn’t give a shit about anyone.

Least of all, me.

When I’d lived in Toronto, it been easier to put her into the back of my mind. Granted, I had been fucked up for many years, but still, I couldn’t see her because she was thousands of miles away.

But, here in Baltimore, it was hard to resist the temptation of knowing her every move. I could almost breathe her in here. No matter where I went.

I knew I would run into her sooner or later. Still, it had been a shock to my system, seeing her stare at me, like she was seeing a ghost.

FUCK! I couldn’t believe I still wanted to know what was going on in her life. It tore me up and I hated that she brought out so much emotion in me.

It hadn’t always been like that.

My first impression of Marla, when I saw her in the library all those years ago was that she was pretty, but a stick in the mud. She was a little frumpy in her overalls and plaid shirt.

Then she got all feisty with me when I showed no interest in that stupid paper on Jane Eyre for that damn Honors English class my dad pushed me into. Her big, brown doe eyes had flashed with anger when I called her boring.

Most girls would have twirled their hair and tried to win me over with a giggle and a smile.

Not Marla.

With tears in her eyes, she told me off without a second thought. So much passion in each word as she angrily picked up her notebook off the library table.

Whoa. She had all of my attention as she stalked off, while I sat back, wondering who she was.

How had I not noticed her before?

The sweet, brown eyes?

The long lashes that gave her an innocent, come-hither stare?

And that backside.

Heart-shaped.

Generous.

Hips for days.

Damn, I got a woody just watching her walk away.

Book Talk Review; One Foot In The Grave


 The Second Book in The Addicting Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost





















  You can run from the grave, but you can’t hide…

  Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She’s still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her, but when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

  Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again.

  Cat and Bones are back. But not together, if you read the first book Halfway To The Grave, then you know the choice that Cat made in the end. (No spoilers)

 This book is one that brings two people who deserve to be together back to each other. Even in the middle of a dangerous situation they manage to find the love that sparked between them all those years ago.

 Cat is a badass agent working for the government now, she uses all the tricks that Bones taught her to help her rid the world of those who get out of line.

 Bones is still is daring, dangerous, sexy self. He's spent the past four years doing what he's always done, while looking for the one that stole his unbeating heart.

   When they find each other, they find that the passion they once had is still burning strong. Only they both have issues with the past they need to deal with. And now a new enemy has emerged, looking for the dangerous half-breed.

The only way for Cat to escape the clutches of her newest mark, she must trust Bones.

Jeaniene took all the action from the first book and amplified it in this one. There is action, love, and some hotness (Trust me, there are scenes in here that you will need a fan for ;) )

Can Bones and Cat defeat their newest opponent and find love in each other again?

 What happens when you've never stopped loving someone all wrong for you?

 Falling in love is hard, but falling back in love, when everyone else is so against you seems to be impossible.

 This is a Must Read Series. I can't express to y'all how much I love these books, Cat and Bones have stolen a piece of my heart. I know I'm going to come back to them at least one more time, (Very rarely do I find books I love enough to reread [I memorize everything I read])

 *QuoteWARNING SPOILERS IN QUOTE-  "I've been looking for you every day since you left me, Kitten, and I'm sick of being without you. You've had your shot at things, now let me have mine." -Bones

                "We are who we become, not who we start out as." -Cat

                 "I think we need to have a little talk, woman to skank. I know why you're doing this. You want me to leave him again, but I can save you the oxygen in your words, because it won't happen. Bones forgave me for deserting him and running off for years, so you can bet your overused, group-orgy twat that I will forgive him for one bad mouthful of you, Now, are we very clear on that?" -Cat

Excerpt
 
I stand in front of her. “Take your clothes off.”

She looks surprised by this.

And normally, I’d want to undress her, but not now.

She needs this.

“Um,” she says, looking puzzled.

“I’m taking my clothes off,” I say as I strip them off and throw them into a chaise. “Get naked with me.”

Her eyes trail hungrily down my body. I love the desire I see in them, but that's not what this is about.

If it were, I'd have her stripped and pinned under me in about two seconds flat.

I walk down the steps and into the pool, the water the perfect soothing temperature.

She takes her clothes off and joins me in the center.

“I don't like being told what to do,” she says softly.

“I know you don't, but sometimes you need it.” I give her a long, sweet kiss. Then I hold her shoulders, keeping her away from me. “You're naked,” I state.

“Yeah, I am,” she flirts.

“That means right here, in this pool, it's just us. Naked.”

“You've said the word naked like four times. I get it. We’re naked.”

“We are physically, but I want you naked emotionally.”
 

Review

Season Two is hotter than Season One was.

Jillian never ceases to amaze me with her writing. If you thought that Season one of Captive films was jaw-dropping, hot, fun, and all around amazing, then you are in for a treat. 

We get more of our favorite KC characters, like we've never seen them before. 

There are twists and turns that I wasn't expecting, if you thought things were complicated in Season One, then Season Two is going to completely fuck with your mind. I know that it did mine. 

I'm aching to get Season Three, if you haven't read Seasons One or Two then you need to. 

Jillian Dodd takes all of our favortie Keatyn Chronicles characters to a whole new level. If you thought that High School was difficult, you're going to be overwhelmed with the dynamics of their adult lives. 

Riley, Keatyn, Dallas, Aiden, Ariela, Maggie, Logan, Vanessa, Dawson, and all of our other favorite characters, plus others show us what goes on behind the scenes of our favorite movies. 

It's amazing how Jillian is able to take our favorite characters and re-amp them. 

Written in the style that only Jillian can execute, get ready to experience a roller coaster.

Book Talk Review; Confess

 Colleen Hoover has done it again!

 
  From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a new novel about risking everything for love—and finding your heart somewhere between the truth and lies.
 Auburn Reed has her entire life mapped out. Her goals are in sight and there’s no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.

 For once, Auburn takes a risk and puts her heart in control, only to discover Owen is keeping major secrets from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.

 The last thing Owen wants is to lose Auburn, but he can’t seem to convince her that truth is sometimes as subjective as art. All he would have to do to save their relationship is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin.
 
 I love everything Colleen writes. I loved this book to, but to be honest it wasn't all what I thought it was going to be. Don't get me wrong, it was an amazing book, but as excited as I was for it, I thought there could have been something more. 
 
 Auburn has just moved to Texas, she is looking for another job in order to pay for some expenses. (No Spoilers!)  She happens to stumble across Owen and his art studio. 
 
 Owen and Auburn have an instant connection, and you find out from Owen that they have a deeper connection than Auburn realizes. Only you don't find out how. 
 
  I have to give credit to Danny O'Connor for the amazing artwork that he did. He has so much talent, every single painting in the book was amazing. I am so going to have to figure out a way to buy the print outs so I can hang them up. 
 
 Auburn has secrets that she wants to keep hidden, she has her life mapped out. What she can't afford is anything getting in her way. But she can't deny the pull she has towards Owen. 
 
 Owen's secrets are the only things that are keeping him away from Auburn. He wants to tell her, but when he finds out her biggest secret, he knows why he can't. 
 
 I  honestly was so excited for this book, but I felt like it fell kind of flat. I loved it all the same, Colleen is an absolute genius, but I couldn't help but feel there was more there. I still felt all the emotions that I normally feel when I read CoHo, but they weren't as intense. 
 
 I fell in love with Owen though, he was able to grab me and make me love him so much. And I did tear up a little at the end of the book.The prologue though is where I had the trouble with tears, within the first five minutes I was a mess, a blubbering, sniffling, giant mess. 
 
 I spent a lot of the book confused, as I tried to figure out what was going on, that was a good thing though. I loved how it kept me on my toes as I tries to figure out what excavate was going on with the characters.

Excerpt 

“Love requires work, Riley,” Aiden says. “It's risking your heart. It's wooing her when she has a boyfriend or is still seeing her ex. You and Ariela never had much drama. Once you asked her out, you never really broke up. I mean, until that day.”

“Graduation day,” I say, taking a gulp of milk and shoving another cookie into my mouth.

“Did you fight for her?”

I hang my head. “I was too devastated to fight. Then I was pissed. Then it was too late.”

“She's back. You have a chance. Why don’t you stop fucking around and take it?”

“If she—”

“If she breaks your heart, we’ll deal with it,” he tells me. “Call her and find out what really happened.”

“What do you mean? I know what happened.”

“Riley, you’re trying to fuck your feelings away. It’s not going to work.” 


Excerpt
 
“I didn’t mean to eavesdrop,” Maggie says, “But fuck yeah! I’m so proud of you for standing up to that asshole!” She studies me. “You know what. You look like you could use a glass of wine. Fortunately, that’s something we have plenty of here. Red or white?”

“White. I can’t believe I said all that. My dad is going to be mad at me when he finds out I lied to him.”

“And do you care about that?” she asks as she drags me out of her office, across the street to her house, and onto her front porch. “Sit and rock. I’ll be right back.”

I sit down and rock. And rock.

And feel a little calmer.

By the time she comes back with two glasses of a crisp Chardonnay, I say, “I’m proud of me too.”

“You should be. Can I see the Thanksgiving card?”

“Sure.” I hand her my phone.

“Oh, wow. You even made up a little rhyme.

We should thank you for your business this Thanksgiving day,
But, instead, we find Collin and his secretary rolling in the hay.
Yes, he has a wife who you all know,
But does that really matter?
Boys will be boys and all that chatter.
If you’re a wife and know how I feel,
Show Collin you won’t stand for this deal.
Move your business to someone worthy of your trust.
And not someone who just thinks about lust.
Maybe it’s time us women unite.
Like the Pilgrims and Indians did that night.
So Happy Thanksgiving,
enjoy your cranberry sauce
And know I’m divorcing this asshole,
Love, Ariela Ross.”

“What do you think?”

“I think if you stop planning weddings, you could write divorce cards.”
