You & Me, the stunning conclusion to the Together Duet by Melody Eve is LIVE!

You&Me-ebook.jpg

After six years of watching over her, Roman finally made his move. Now he and Aria are in the middle of an unexpected whirlwind romance.

Well, unexpected for Aria at least.

Now that he has her, Roman will do everything in his power to make sure she’s safe. Convinced that it’s Aria’s ex who is responsible for the hang-up calls and cryptic messages that have been left in her apartment, Roman is covering all the bases to keep her safe.

But will his overprotective alpha male ways drive Aria away? Or will her stalker get through his line of defense?

Roman isn’t about to let his second chance at love get away. One way or another he will make sure they get through this together.

My Review…

Together Duet – Part Two

Wow, just wow! What an ending to this fantastic debut duet by new author Melody Eve!

This is the continuing story of Aria and Roman.  This story picks up right where the last book left off.

Just like Him & I (the first book in the duet), Ms. Eve gives us little teasers of information surrounding the mystery in the story.  She is the queen of misdirection, and I love it!

Aria is trying to exert her independence, but it comes at a price.  She is learning the extent of Roman’s protective tendencies.  Will she adjust accordingly?  Read on and find out!

Roman is still the stalkerish, protective, alpha male that I fell in love with! He is learning the difference between overbearing and letting Aria make decisions freely. He is still punishing himself for his past in the most “in your face” way.  Let’s hope with Aria’s loyalty and love he can move forward to the future!

If you haven’t yet, read this fabulous new series by the fabulous new author!  I cannot wait to see what she comes out with next!  I have clicked the links, joined the group, and am stalking this author, in a healthy way, I promise.  Like I said in my review for her first book, Melody Eve becoming an amazing author!  Well done!

Happy Release Day & Review – The Brightest Stars by Anna Todd

See My Review Below!!!

The Brightest Stars, a beautiful and gripping novel from New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Anna Todd, is LIVE!

The Brightest Stars AMAZON.jpg

International bestselling author Anna Todd returns with a gripping novel about a young woman’s journey towards love, and the obstacles life throws up at every turn.

Karina knows the harsh realities of military life. And like anyone who has grown up around an army base, she knows the background noise that follows a soldier home from war. That’s why she’s forging her own quiet life in her own little house. But she hasn’t turned her back on her family. She’s the glue that holds them together–when her father is deployed, when her brother, Austin, has another brush with the law.

Karina knows that she has to look after herself, that she can’t always fix what’s broken. But when Austin’s behavior worsens and her father’s reactions grow more extreme, Karina feels her own edges beginning to fray. That’s when she meets him–a closed book she’s desperate to open.

At just twenty, Kael is a handsome, brooding soldier struggling with the aftermath of two tours in Afghanistan. He’s emotionally damaged and closed off. Quiet doesn’t begin to describe him. But as Karina gets used to his stable presence, she finds it hard to ignore the way he makes her feel. In their time together, she finds the stillness she has always wanted and never found. She lets down her guard. And she lets herself fill in the blanks about this mysterious man.

But illusions quickly made are quickly shattered. That’s when Karina has to find her own courage–to untangle the truth from the lies, and decide what she’s going to do about it.

A riveting story about love and lies, THE BRIGHTEST STARS will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.

My Review…

Another stellar book!

I really enjoy when Ms. Todd writes with a military spin.  She gets it!

The Brightest Stars is the story of Karina and Kael, but it’s also so much more!

Karina is the product of her environment, her parents divorce and being an Army brat shaped her into the person she is now.  She is trying hard to break from her past and is well on her way, still with some bumps, but she is trying. The only person she really trusts is her twin Austin, and he’s a hot mess.

Kael is a mystery, wrapped in an enigma.  He is a soldier, he is just returned from deployment and is injured.  But who is he? Karina, despite her trepidation, wants to know more about him. She becomes addicted, almost obsessed with Kael and that scares her.

This story starts with sadness, but we won’t get the full explanation.  You will be guessing throughout the book.  In fact when I finished, I went back and read the first couple chapters to see if I could figure it out….I couldn’t.

The secondary characters are just as important as the main ones! Make sure you don’t just fly by them.  I got the feeling there is more at play than just complimenting the main characters in this story.

The ending, whew…well read it and find out! It threw me through a loop and I am hoping that Ms. Todd will grace us with another book in this world she created.  I would love to read more!

This book is one you won’t be able to put down until you finish it and then it will leave you hoping for more!

Blurb
The biggest story of her life is the one he wants to hide.
I’m homeless by choice.
I have no intention of returning to my former life after what I’ve done.
This—living among the filth and discarded remnants of others—is what I deserve.
As atonement for my sins, I give back; I help those who cannot help themselves. But it’s always under the guise of anonymity.
Newspaper headlines throughout the city are clamoring to discover my identity. Including the beautiful woman who manages to see through my “armor.”
She has the capability to put my entire life at risk.

My Review…

I just fall in love harder with Ms. Boldt every time I read her stories!

The Good Samaritan is the perfect story! It made me smile, it made me cry and it made me swoon! All the ingredients needed for a perfect romance.

But this is more than a romance. It’s a story about redemption and forgiveness.

I felt for Faith, I was full of sorrow about how she felt about her secret. How because of a hurtful past, it made her feel less than. Made her feel that she will lose herself and will never be happy.

Oh Jude. I wanted to wrap him in a warm blanket and hug him tight. He is searching for a way to redeem himself from his secret. But their is nothing to redeem. He is a true hero in every sense of the word.

I applauded Faith’s acceptance of Jude. She never saw anything other than what made him worthy of her love and faith.

I also applaud Ms. Boldt for making her characters flawed. Also for the honesty of making Faith and Jude fix themselves before trying to find their forever together.

The secondary characters are phenomenal! I loved how they came into the picture at just the right time. And how their presence made their mark in Faith and Jude’s lives.

I cannot tell you enough, dear readers, how much I loved this story! Do yourself a favor and get this book. Read it slow and enjoy it! It will make you stop and think of things you thought you knew just a bit differently!

One Rule: No More Men.
Two years ago I walked away from a marriage I thought would last forever and all I got from it was Dick … 
and I don’t mean the one between my stupid ex’s legs. 
I’m talking about the one hundred fifty pound furry dog said ex dropped off at my doorstep.
But I’d take Dick over any man, any day. 
So why did I resemble my dog, panting and drooling, whenever I ran into Hudson West, my sexy new neighbor?
True, the gorgeous veterinarian was hotter than sin.
And my new roommate only made it impossible for me to avoid conversation with a man I didn’t need.
Until tragedy struck and some jerk decided to run Dick down.
It was hotter than sin Hudson who came to his rescue. 
Then it became impossible to ignore him. 
It was only supposed to be a fling, a quickie, a one and done.
We both had reasons to keep it that way … my one rule and his five-year-old son.
Except things didn’t quite work out that way.
One turned into two, then three, annnnd you get the picture.
Before we knew it, he gave me a lot more than puppies and fairy tales.
And that stupid rule?
I should’ve stuck to it because now more than my heart was at risk.

BLURB

He was the hot popular guy. I was the nerdy girl with a fantasy crush.

All of my childhood, I was invisible to Adam Carlisle. That was fine, because I was too shy, and too smart, to think I had a chance with the most popular guy in school.

Until someone crowned him prom king…

And me queen.

But it was only a cruel joke that ruined my self-esteem and broke my heart.

Ten years later and my friend begs me to attend our school reunion with her. I’m older, wiser, but still a nerd. This event is setting off my anxiety.

I want it to be over.

Then… I see him.

My prom king.

Adam is hotter than ever. But what really gets my attention?

He’s staring right at me.

I’m not invisible anymore.

What happens when my fantasy crush becomes reality?

 

 

 

 

EXCERPT

There’s a commotion by the door and I look over and my whole body goes cold, then hot. Olivia Mitchell is standing in the doorway.

I didn’t think I’d ever see her again. Nobody thought we’d ever see her again. But there she is, alive and… beautiful.

And then she looks right at me. It feels like my heart stops. This song, looking at each other. It feels all too familiar, and I don’t think that I can keep still.

I glance over at Trent.

“Excuse me.”

He follows my gaze and smiles.

“It’s about time, man. Go.”

I leave my whiskey at the table, and I head straight for her. It’s like I’m being pulled, and she’s looking at me like I’m the last person she expected to see. I hope that I’m not the last person that she wanted to see. Olivia. Ollie. It’s been a long time, and there are emotions welling up inside my chest that I haven’t examined in a long time.

The first step is to say hello, Adam.

Don’t get ahead of yourself.

It’s shallow, but I’m stunned by how gorgeous she looks. Ollie was always beautiful in a quiet way, but it’s not quiet tonight. I try to pull my eyes away from the blue dress hugging her amazing body or else my dick is going to be as hard as granite. But holy fuck do I want to look and never stop looking.

She looks away from me and suddenly I can breathe again.

My Review…

New to me author!

Such a sweet and steamy story! This is a story I wished would have happened to me!

Nerdy girl and the popular boy…

Such an embarrassment at prom for Olivia (Ollie). Her crush for Adam was the stuff of high school memories. Adam’s reaction at prom proved to Ollie that it was an unreciprocated feeling, or was it?

Flash forward to the 10 year high school prom.  Ollie has no plans to go until her best friend convinces her to.  Ollie has grown into an independent, self sufficient woman, but still has some lingering self-esteem and self-doubt issues.

Adam and Ollie meet again at the reunion and sparks fly!!

Adam is so excited to start a real relationship with Ollie, but there is guilt too.  He is hiding something that could destroy the fragile beginning of the real thing.

This story is a just a lovely romp into the fantasy of so many nerdy girls! (Me included) It was a such a breath of fresh air.  A real tasty treat of a story!

Ramblings….Wine weekend and prison tats…sheesh

Well followers, I got to ramble a bit….

So yesterday, there was a wine festival in the neighboring town. This is the second year that we have gone and we have soooo much fun.  Enjoying wine, laughing with friends and buying endearing yard art and other crafted items….this year my yard art will include swinging roosters…I will have to post a pic when I can get my hungover ass outside to put it up.

After the festival, we decided to do a little bar hopping…so we stop we go in….and here’s where my musing will happen.

As you can see from my blog logo, I have a neck tattoo….it’s something special to me and it’s says “Bibliophile”.  Now since I have gotten it, I have been asked repeatedly what it means and I happily explain the definition and proudly tell them it’s a badge of honor for me…now some people thought it meant something about bibles, and I say I have read that too.  And I have had a few idiots thinking it said pedophile, like I would brand my body with that…people see “….phile” and go dark fast.

So back to the bar with my girlfriends…I need a refill so I meander up to the bar to get fresh cocktail, Grey Goose, Sprite and lime. (Can’t go too exotic in a small town.) Now yesterday was hot, I mean hotter than five kinds of hell hot, sweating like a whore in church hot.  I wore my long hair up in a messy bun with a cute bandana so my neck was exposed for all to see.  Now, I am a 46 year old, slightly “fluffy” gal, and not to stereotype myself or anyone else, I am the LAST person you would expect to do hard time in a state or federal penitentiary.

I am waiting patiently at the bar (I really was!!) for my refill when a gentleman (I use the term sarcastically) asks me if I have been to prison.  At first I wasn’t sure if he was talking to me because I wasn’t looking or interacting with him at all.  So when I did look at him and said “Excuse me?” I realized he was talking to me.  I looked a little confused and he said “Well you have a neck tattoo…” Now I don’t know much about “prison” rules/regulations but I didn’t know that a neck tat was an admission to serving time. I wasn’t sure to be amused or pissed at the assumption so I go to my “go to” persona, Sarcastic bitch, Lola….and Lola proceeded to say “Why yes, yes I was, for stabbing a man who asked stupid questions…I didn’t hear your question….”

Now I am proud of all my tattoos, well except for my first and I am in the process of fixing it.  They have meaning, they have history….I love them.
