Lies Unspoken by Lisa DeJong – Review!

lies unspoken cover

I tried hard not to fall for the bad guy.

 

My new roommate, Blake, is a jerk—an unemployed artist with a chip on his shoulder. I can’t stand him unless his hands are on me. He makes me desperate for him, and everything he makes me feel.

 

And then there’s my new boss, Pierce–successful, charming, and extremely good-looking. He goes after what he wants, but what does he see in me?

 

I try to stay away, but I end up in the arms of exactly who I was hiding from. And when I find out what’s being hidden from me, my heart twists in ways it never should.

 

I thought I knew him.

I didn’t.

The way he kissed me.

The way his hands traveled every inch of my skin.

I thought it meant something, but as it turns out, it was all lies unspoken.


Court’s $0.02:

 

 As most of you know, Lisa is one of my favorite romance writers.  I am not a huge romance reader (yes odd considering our blog is mainly romance) but Lisa is one of the very few authors that I will read without even asking what the book is about.  Her writing has always been able to be able to pull at my heart.  And she does that once again with Lies Unspoken.
“Love isn’t defined by what you deserve. It’s about finding that one person you know you can’t live without and never letting them go.”
Lisa had told me at the Vegas signing that this book was going to be nothing like I’ve read from her before.  And wow was I taken by surprise.  I could feel everything in this book.
Lila is thrown off kilter when she has the rug yanked out from under her.  But instead of wallowing in her misery – she decides the best way to move on is to do just that – move!
Being in a new city all by yourself definitely has it’s positives and negatives.  You get to experience everything without someone else’s opinion but you also have no-one to share it with.
“You’re the type of woman that men don’t know they want until they’ve already fallen.  You’re there and then you’re just…..everywhere.”
Lila meets Pierce and Blake and these two couldn’t be more different than night and day.  Pierce is Lila’s new boss and Blake is her friend’s brother and her new roommate.
And if you want to know what happens after that – I am not telling!! LOL
I will say that my heart ached for Lila throughout this whole book.  Lila’s just wants a fresh start and no problems.  But sometimes we don’t get to choose our destiny.
“For what could have been minutes, or maybe hours, I fall back to the heartbroken woman I was months ago.  This time, I have no one to blame but myself. Blake warned me. I didn’t listen. Pierce offered to catch me, but I’d already fallen.”
Pierce and Blake may be two totally different men – but you will want them each for very many different reasons.  And you will find yourself having a love/hate relationship with them both.
The ending – so did not see that coming and I cried – HARD!  I seriously think my heart flopped onto my kindle after reading that.
March 1 can not come quick enough!!!

Strayed (Caged #6) by Amber Lynn Natusch – Review!

13517503

(If you haven’t read the other books yet, you might not want to read this)

Reunited at last, Ruby and Scarlet have tried to mend their fractured relationship. But Scarlet’s unwillingness to share what she did during her three week expedition has Ruby frustrated and Sean seething. When Ruby starts to remember events she never witnessed, it becomes clear that Scarlet’s days of secrecy were far more nefarious than she let on.

As though that weren’t enough, an enigmatic note and key entangle Ruby in an off-the-book murder investigation. Detective Alan Beauchamp will stop at nothing to uncover the truth surrounding the death of his mentor. But when he and Ruby attempt to retrieve the evidence necessary to solve the case, they soon find themselves in the killer’s sights.

With unknown assailants after her and Scarlet’s dark deeds surfacing, can Ruby survive long enough to find a way out of death’s path, or will events already set in motion lead to her ultimate demise?

Court’s $0.02:

HOLY MOTHER FUCKING SHIT – my exact words to Amber when I finished this book.  I am still trying to pick my jaw up from off the floor.
This series just blows me away!!  I absolutely love it and this book just reiterates why!!  If you have not started this series yet – NOW IS THE TIME!!!
Amber holds nothing back in Strayed – it is all out there.  I will say nothing more than that though.  You must read to see what I mean.
“All was right with the world, if only for that moment. And that was where I choose to live – in the moment – because in a life like mine, one could never be too certain when the moments would end.”
Ruby and Scarlet are trying to come to terms with one another.  But secrets will always cause problems if they are not disclosed.  But what if sometimes those secrets will cause more harm than good if they are let out??
Ruby is dealing with having new roommates and trying to move forward with her life all the while shit always seems to find her.  Her CF list always to seem to be added to – nothing ever taken away.
And just when she Ruby thinks she has all the answers – another twist is thrown into the whole mix.  Things never are as they seem.  Ruby has so many people in her life – she is never sure where to turn or who to really trust.
This story will pull at you. Have you guessing at every corner.  Amber does a phenomenal job at keeping you on your toes the entire ride.  You will be gasping, shaking your head in disbelief, finding yourself going “WTF!!”, and just sheer shock and awe as you read.  You will get answers to questions that have lingered, but in true Amber Natusch fashion – those answers will just cause you have to more questions!!
There are so many great surprises in this book.  I found myself elated at some and others just pure shock.  You will absolutely love this book in the series.  I truly believe this is my favorite one!!
These characters have all grown on me.  I really enjoy reading the banter between all the characters.  It just gives you a stronger connection to not just the story, but the characters themselves.  You truly feel what they are feeling.
“By realizing that who you are is not defined by what you’ve done.”
Amber – you have done it once again – given me what I wanted and left me wanting even more!  BRA-FUCKING-O!!!!
Go buy this book NOW!!!  You are absolutely insane not to!

ebook cover

SynopsisIn the land of Hollywood, bright lights cover lies, truths hide in shadows, and the lives of the rich and famous are illusions created by smoke and mirrors.

When costume designer Josie Bane first lays eyes on Anders Ellis, she hates him instantly. Conceited and arrogant, he’s the epitome of a Hollywood playboy. So it’s much to Josie’s dismay when he becomes the star of her sexual fantasies.

Never expecting to see him again, she gives in to her desires for a night she’ll never forget. However, Josie soon learns that life is full of surprises. When their paths cross again, sparks fly. With three little words, Anders changes everything.

He’s after one thing.

She refuses to give it to him… again.

When Josie realizes she’s falling for a man that will never let her in but refuses to let her go, she must decide if the risk is worth the reward.

With a relationship shrouded in secrets and outside forces poised to tear them apart, did they ever stand a chance? Before the smoke clears and the curtain falls, Josie and Anders must distinguish between what’s fact and what’s fiction in a place where the truth is never black and white.

Frozen by L.A. Casey – Happy Release Day!

Frozen Release Day Banner

Title: Frozen
Author: L.A. Casey

Frozen Cover

synopsis

Neala Clarke is a woman of her word, when she gives you it, expect her to deliver. Neala gave her niece Charli her word that she would get her a doll for Christmas. Never mind that there is only one week until Christmas and everywhere that stocked toys is practically sold out. Neala gave her word that she would get that doll for Charli, so she will move mountains to make it happen.

Darcy Hart is a people pleaser, when he is asked last minute for a doll by his adorable six year old nephew Dustin, he of course, says yes. However, Darcy faces a dilemma, the particular doll he needs is sold out everywhere. Darcy makes one last attempt to get the doll at a local toy store, and finds out they have only one left in stock, but he also finds out he is not the only person interested in claiming the doll.

Neala and Darcy go way back, playing in each other’s play pens kind of way back. They are not friends, more like mortal enemies, and both of them wanting a single doll was the start of a series of events that no one could have predicted, not even Father Christmas himself.

Frozen Teaser #1

excerpt

I snarled, “Give me the doll. Now!”

Darcy had the box against his chest with both hands on it. His fingers tapped against the box while a smug smile stretched across his face.

He glanced to the snowmen gathered around my feet and teased, “You’ve got to watch your step, sweetheart.”

I blew out a frustrated breath. “I swear if you don’t give me that bloody doll I’ll-“

“You’ll what?” Darcy cut me off, his smug smile still in place on his handsome face.

Damn him.

“I’ll shove me foot so far up your arse you’ll need a surgeon to remove it.”

Darcy’s eyes widened. “You’re a foot shorter than me, and at least fifty pounds lighter. You’re a tiny little thing, Neala Girl. I’m not scared of you. You can’t hurt me.”

Wrong.

He was so wrong.

“I can hurt you, and I will unless you give me the doll.”

Darcy raised an eyebrow and snorted. “How about… no.”

Bastard!

I curled my lip into a sadistic grin. “Okay, you asked for it.”

Darcy shook his head at me and moved forward so he could brush by me. “I don’t have time for- What the hell?”

When Darcy was close enough to do so I manoeuvred my body behind his, hooked my arms around his chest and searched for his nipples with my hands. When I found them, I grabbed them between my index fingers and thumbs and pinched.

“Me nipples, let go of me nipples!” Darcy cried.

I growled and tweaked his nipples a little harder. “Let go of the doll, and I’ll let go of your nipples.”

Wow.

There’s a sentence I never thought I’d hear myself say.

“You need a good guy. A long-term guy. One who does dates and romance and emotional strings…I’m just an asshole who wants to tie you up, make you come, and walk away.”

 

Samuel Bradshaw is a man with a reputation—the kind of reputation that should have me running the other way. Instead, it has me searching for the shortest distance to his bed. I won’t be the starry-eyed girl who thinks she can change a man like Sam, and despite what he thinks, forever is not what I need. I need the things he makes me feel, the way he turns me on, and the promise of pleasure in his eyes. This promises to be SOMETHING WILD.

 

 

Excerpt from SOMETHING WILD by Lexi Ryan

© 2014 by Lexi Ryan

 

Sneaking into this room seemed like a great idea when I was on the dance floor with him, his hard body pressed into mine, but alone in the quiet conference room, I’m pretty sure this could be the most reckless thing I’ve ever done.

What if someone catches us in here? Hell, what if he doesn’t come? What if he does? I’ve thrown myself at Sam before, and it didn’t end well. He has no idea how hard I took his rejection, or the decisions I made after I left his room that night.

I should leave. I should . . .

The door clicks and then Sam steps inside, his eyes raking over me.

“Hey,” I whisper. “You came.”

He closes the door behind himself, turns the lock, then stalks toward me.

Thank you! the girlie bits shout. Stupid brain upstairs was about to ruin everything!

“Are you sure you want to do this?” His voice is a low rumble that I swear I can feel right between my legs.

Hell yes, I want to do this.

But I also don’t. Because Sam’s no longer some unrequited crush. He’s a friend. And if this goes to hell, it’ll make my life exponentially more awkward.

“We need rules,” I say quickly.

He takes another step closer. And another. Until I’m looking at his chest, smelling his aftershave. He tilts my chin up with his index finger then traces my lips with his thumb. “Hold that thought?”

I nod, nearly breathless at nothing but the touch of his thumb skimming my lips.

“I need to do this first.” He cups my jaw in his big hand and brushes his lips over mine. My lips part in surprise at the gesture that’s almost . . . sweet. He deepens the kiss, slanting his mouth over mine and sliding his tongue inside.

He tastes like beer, and I want to get drunk on this kiss—to overindulge until I can’t see straight, to imbibe until sobriety is a distant memory.

This is how kisses should be. I love the way his hand slides into my hair as he samples my lips, love how his kiss manages to be simultaneously gentle and demanding. It’s the kind of kiss that makes your toes curl, the kind worth remembering in five years when you’re lonely and bored and wondering if kissing had ever been so sweet.

When he pulls back, his eyes are hooded, darker. Sexy as sin. “Now, what were you saying?”

I have no idea. “Ru . . . rules?” I manage.

“Ah, yes. Well, I’ve never done well with rules, but tell me yours and I’ll see what I can do.”

I take a breath and try to figure out a rule that isn’t just Kiss me like that every time, or Please don’t make me fall for you.

“You keep looking at me like that,” he warns, “and I’m going to kiss you again, and we may never get to discuss these rules of yours.”

Right. “We can’t tell anyone,” I say. Cally and my sisters will try to make more of this than the one-night stand I know it to be.

His expression shifts and becomes unreadable. “Okay. What else?”

“This doesn’t change anything between us. We’re friends.” Something in my chest objects to that rule. It feels like a betrayal. But I want to say it before he does. I have to.

“Sex changes everything, Liz. That’s half the fun.”

“It doesn’t have to. I want us to still be friends after tonight.”

“Oh, we can be friends.” His breath ruffles my hair as he skims his fingertips down my bare arms, sending delicious shivers through my body that land low in my belly and turn my insides to goo. “But it’ll be different.”

“How so?”

“We won’t be able to look at each other without remembering what it was like. And if I have my way—” He dips his head to my ear and tugs the lobe between his teeth. A shudder rocks through me. “—every time you look at me, your panties will go damp as you remember what I did to you.”

Angelisa Stone is a typical Midwestern wife and mom, frazzled by parenting and housework, and overwhelmed with sports schedules, doctor appointments, and three-dimensional creative projects due “tomorrow morning.” Angelisa dreams of white sandy beaches, clear-blue waters, and Midori coladas in hand, but realizes that her loving husband and four not-so-perfect children are her real dreams-come-true. Writing and reading are her passions, and she hopes (and prays with her fingers tightly crossed) that readers will find enjoyment and escape through her words and characters.
