Excerpt

 
I sit outside on a bench, looking at the scuffs on the tips of my black leather shoes. The bottoms are worn from wearing them while riding my bike. It was the only sign that set me apart from the other rich kids where I grew up. Other than Cruise, no one rode motorcycles or had dealt with anything worse than getting a warning after getting busted for smoking, skipping school, sneaking out, smoking weed, getting drunk, or driving over the speed limit. The list could go on.
 
I have a car. I just don’t drive it much, preferring the freedom I feel on my bike. It wasn’t just my clothes or the bike that set me a part. None of them had lived, breathed, existed simply because their soul mate did. Not even now.
 
From the moment I saw her, I knew Sara Jane was it for me, an angel in a Catholic school uniform, eating a candy bar. She couldn’t have been more innocent. Except she was. The girl had barely been kissed. It’s like she had been waiting to meet me, as if she had saved herself for me. How a girl who looked that good and smelled even sweeter remained untouched for so long was beyond me.
 
I would have loved her no matter what. She could have been a prostitute, and I would have only seen her halo. I was a ship navigating a stormy sea, but she called me to her lighthouse, a beacon shining in the dark. It was never about her innocence, or the sins I had inherited. The day I met Sara Jane was about two lives that weren’t meant for only one lifetime, but destined to be together forever.
 
Maybe that’s what had given me the confidence to break away from the kids I grew up with. I knew I was meant for something bigger than a life of partying and getting high socially.
 
I was meant for Sara Jane, and she for me.
Tracey’s Review

Well, I finally got my hot little hands on SAVIOR, the second book in the Kingwood Duet by author S.L. Scott, and it was everything that I was hoping. I was hanging onto the cliff that Suzie threw readers over at the end of SAVAGE (Book 1) by my fingernails, y’all, and dying to see what was next for Sara Jane and Alexander. SAVIOR started out with a bang, and, friends, there is no break in the action, the suspense, and the glorious passion of it all, from the first page to the last.

As I was reading SAVIOR, I kept thinking about what a range Suzie has with her books. The two books in the Kingwood Duet are unlike anything else of hers that I’ve read, and they are riveting and wonderful in their own way. There is such a depth of emotion between Alexander and Sara Jane, a bond that nothing, and I mean nothing can break. And, while that’s a common theme in all of Suzie’s stories, there’s just something different about this series. Dark, dangerous, and filled with edge of your seat action, these books make for a story that you just can’t stop reading.

I couldn’t have asked for a more satisfying conclusion to the epic story that began with SAVAGE, and sped through SAVIOR to find the answers to all of the questions, the secrets that were waiting to be revealed, with barely a pause. Suffice to say that fans of romantic suspense NEED to have these books atop their TBR, because they will blow you away. There are plenty of angsty, heart-stopping reads out there, but Alexander King and his queen are in a class by themselves, so do yourself a favor and dive into them now.

About COLD MALICE

Available September 12th

ASAC Steve (Mac) McKenzie is out to prove himself by leading a task force investigating a series of murders in the heart of Washington, DC. His undercover work in an antigovernment compound twenty years earlier is related—as is the sweet, innocent girl he befriended back then. Now that girl is a beautiful woman, and she has something to hide.

Tess Fallon spent a lifetime trying to outrun her family’s brand of bigotry, but someone is threatening her anonymity by using the anniversary of her father’s death to carry out evil crimes and she’s terrified her younger brother is involved. She sets out to find the truth and comes face-to-face with a man she once idolized, a man she thought long dead. As the crimes escalate it becomes obvious the killer has an agenda, and Tess and Mac are running out of time to stop him.

Will the perpetrator use a decades-old dream of revolution to attack the federal government? And will the fact that Tess and Mac have fallen hard for each other give a cold-hearted killer the power to destroy them both?

New Release + Blog Tour + 5-Star Review: Beneath the Truth by Meghan March

 

From USA Today bestselling author Meghan March comes the final sexy standalone set in the Beneath world of New Orleans.

I used to believe there were lines in life you don’t cross.
Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal.
Until I learned people don’t always practice what they preach.
I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything.
Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.
What I don’t expect is for her to be here too.
Another line you don’t cross?
Don’t touch your best friend’s little sister.
She’s always been off-limits.
Too bad I don’t follow the rules anymore.

Tracey’s Review

Meghan March has gone and done it. She’s written the last book in the Beneath series, telling the story of Rhett Hennessy and Ariel Sampson, and tidily and emotionally wrapping up a series that I have enjoyed very much. While it’s sad to see this group of stories come to an end, Meghan has done an excellent job of bringing everything full circle, and I could not put this book down to save my life.

Rhett and Ariel have known each other forever. As her big brother’s best friend, Rhett was literally the boy next door, and the star of Ariel’s dreams, both then and now. When a family tragedy bring Rhett back to New Orleans, it isn’t a happy homecoming. He’s been out of contact and away from the Big Easy for years after the life-changing events that took place, and coming back is bittersweet, to say the least.

For Ari, answering her brother’s summons to come back to New Orleans isn’t even a question for her. Even though she’s the owner of her own tech firm, and a certified genius, Ari’s family is her touchstone, and being back home is exactly where she needs to be. When the mysterious events surrounding both her family and Rhett’s start to get darker and more dangerous than either of them could have anticipated, Ari and Rhett will team up to do whatever it takes to crack the case. And if all the close contact finally allows them to open their hearts to each other, all the better.

I absolutely adore Ariel. She is a firecracker, with all the sass and savvy that Meghan routinely brings to her lead ladies. She really doesn’t need a man to feel complete, because she’s doing just fine on her own, but, heck if she’s going to pass up the opportunity to make good on her childhood crush.

Rhett has a lot of baggage, but he’s also plenty in touch with himself, and this trait is one of the things that I most love about the way that Meghan writes her men. Strong, mysterious, Rhett is these things, but he’s also seen enough to know that life is short, and opportunities not to be missed. He loves NOLA, his family, and Ariel’s family above all, and will do what it takes to shed light on the events going down, and he won’t waste anymore time letting a certain redhead know how he feels.

Meghan couldn’t have written a better conclusion to this beloved series, in my opinion. There are all of our favorites from the earlier books, heartfelt passion and serious sizzle, and a wonderful epilogue that had me smiling. 5 stars, of course, for BENEATH THE TRUTH, and for this series. Fans of books with passion, suspense, and plenty of emotion will love this book (and the others!), and I highly recommend it.

New Release + 5 Star Review: Blind Date by Bella Jewel

Blind Date

By Bella Jewel

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Buy: Amazon / B & N / IBooks / Kobo

Synopsis

From Bella Jewel, the USA Today bestselling author of the wildly popular Alphas Heart e-series, comes a pulse-pounding thriller about a serial killer who’s hiding in plain sight, targeting his prey one BLIND DATE at a time. . .

After the death of her husband four years ago, Hartley Watson is finally ready to meet someone—and maybe even have a second chance at love. But then, just as her dating life seems to be getting started, Hartley is struck with a horrifying realization: Someone is watching her. Entering her own home. Even knows the intimate details of her life. How else to explain the strange deliveries, or the sudden appearance of mementos from her dead spouse—ones that she had kept for so long in storage?

If only Hartley could know for sure whether what is happening to her is real or if her grief is making her lose touch with reality. Those around her aren’t convinced that she’s being stalked, nor is the wonderful, supportive man Hartley’s started dating. The exciting new life she has created for herself is slowly becoming a nightmare. . .How can Hartley seek protection when nobody believes that she’s at risk—and the only one in the world she can trust is herself?

______________________________________

Michel’s Review

In today’s world the dating scene is ruled by the swipe of a finger.  Dating Apps are the key to connecting with others without having to physically put oneself out there night after night. A date can be made with one swipe.  In many ways this way of dating is wonderful because one can filter out the duds and find someone more suited to their interests.  There are drawbacks to this method of dating as well because a person is relying on honesty and integrity and that is not always the case.  In all reality you don’t know what you are getting yourself into.

After several years of being a widow, Hartley Watson is ready to join the land of the living.  Her best friend convinces her to join a blind date dating site to meet new people.  While she is reluctant, she agrees it’s time to move on with her life.  The first few dates are a disaster but by the third date things are starting to look better.  She’s actually starting to enjoy dating once again until weird things begin happening in her life.  It seems like the ghost of her husband has surfaced and is meddling in her life.  At first she chalks it up to an active imagination and guilt until things start turning downright creepy.  She feels like she’s being watched and has become fearful of her own shadow.  Her friends and the new man she is dating think it’s just harmless coincidenses rather than a dangerous stalker.  Her cranky neighbor, a police detective, isn’t convinced it’s harmless.  There is a serial killer known as the Bowtie Killer loose in the city and killing women.  He’s trying to figure out the connection between the dead women and Hartley. He’s fearful Hartley may be the next victim. Can he figure it out before it’s too late for Hartley?  What makes this case even more complicated is he’s starting to actually like his crazy neighbor a little more than a neighborly way.

Bella Jewel had me on the edge of my seat with this book.  The suspense kept escalating and the plot became even more complicated as the story progressed.  While I suspected who the killer was all along, his actions and motivations remained a mystery until the very end.  The romance between Ace and Hartley is a slow build that turns from hostility to respect before the sexual tension takes over.  It was refreshing to see a relationship that wasn’t based on insta-love or driven by sexual attraction.  They really got to know one another before they ventured into a romantic relationship.  The sexual tension was brilliantly hidden within the hostility and reluctant friendship.

If you are looking for a thriller mixed with a hot romance I would highly recommend Blind Date by Bella Jewel.

It was one dark night that brought Damon Wolfe and Sophie Parker together. They were two tortured souls, looking for escape, and they weren’t supposed to see each other ever again…

Four years later, Sophie’s FBI father, who is also Damon’s mentor, is killed in a suspicious car crash after leaving Sophie a cryptic message to trust no one from the agency. When Damon shows up looking for her, she isn’t sure if he’s friend or enemy, but she knows he could easily rip apart what is left of her heart.

The last thing Damon wants is to get involved with Sophie again. It was hard enough to walk away the first time. But she’s in trouble, her father’s reputation is under attack, and the lives of his fellow agents are at stake if there’s a traitor in their midst.

When someone starts shooting at them, they have no choice but to go on the run and off the grid. Everyone in their world becomes a suspect. They want to uncover the truth, but will it turn out to be the last thing they expect? Proving her father’s innocence might just cost them their hearts…and their lives…

EXCERPT:

She could see the war going on in Damon’s eyes, the need to do the right thing, the desire to feel what they’d felt once before.

“I don’t want to hurt you,” he said huskily.

“You won’t hurt me.”

“You said that the last time, but I hurt you then, and I don’t want to do it again.”

“That was different. We know each other better now.”

“That might be true, but there’s something else that’s also true—I don’t do love, Sophie. I’m not good at it, and it doesn’t work out. I might be exactly what you want in the night, but I will never be what you want in the morning.”

“In the morning? We don’t even know if we’re going to have a morning, Damon. You told me that I need to stay in the moment. This is the moment. So, stop fighting. Please, stop fighting.”

“You’re not playing fair, Sophie.”

“I’m not playing at all,” she said, recklessness driving her forward. She pressed her mouth against his, and took what she wanted. It was a heady, glorious, freeing feeling.
