I’ve known fear.

I’ve known pain.
I’ve known horror.
I’ve known all of it.
I’ve guarded myself as best I can.
I’ve hidden myself from him.
I’ve changed my name.
I’ve moved.
But he still haunts me.
One day, I’m sure he’ll find me again.
I don’t trust anybody.
I don’t believe in anybody.
I just want to be free.
Until I meet Jack.
I’m not looking for him, but that’s the thing about heroes.
You’re never looking for them.
He won’t take no for an answer.
He’ll battle past my fear, my pain, and my horror.
He’ll sweep into my life like a hurricane, and it won’t matter how hard I fight.
He’ll break past my walls.
And he’ll change me.
Maybe, he’ll even save me.

Review
4-star
Healing the Broken by K. Street is a debut book by this author and you wouldn’t know it by her writing style. It was smooth and transitioned nicely throughout. She had 2 main characters that were loveable and strong.
Ryann is a woman who has seen things most people never do and she is still having the nightmares to prove it. Cashel is a man that has been burned in the past but when he runs into his old childhood friend Ryann he wants to help fix her. With memories at the forefront for both, a love grows between the two and when Ryann’s past comes back to haunt her, Cashel is there to protect her.
This is an emotional story that will have you laughing one minute and in tears the next. There is so much strength and honesty in this book that I couldn’t put it down until I was done.

Excerpt

 

Cash’s POV“Stay.”

It’s uttered so quietly, I assume she’s dreaming. Without turning to look at her, I take another step out of the room.

“Please.”

There is a desperate sound in her tone that seizes my heart and traps the air in my lungs. Turning back, I go to the side of the bed and crouch down, so I’m eye-level with her. Softly, I push the hair off her forehead and hold her gaze. All her defenses are down. If a person’s eyes are windows to their soul, I feel like I’m seeing into the depths of her. Seeing all the broken pieces.

“All right, baby girl, I’ll stay.”

From WSJ Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a new stand-alone contemporary romance.

Fake engaged to the hottest quarterback in the country? SCORE.

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,

But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.

Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL.

He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.

He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.

Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,

He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,

And he’d never get another piece.

A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . .

And I was lost.

I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.

I forgot we weren’t REAL.

Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist,

Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

 

Three months. Two hearts. One fake engagement.

Review

4-star

This is the first book by this author I have read and what a refreshing read it is too!

Sunny moves across the road from the all star quarterback at her college, Max, and didn’t intend to have anything to do with him however fate intervenes. She agrees to a fake relationship but also finds a friend in him.

Sunny is such a strong, sassy young woman who is able to stand up for herself. Max knows he is a brilliant football player but strives to maintain higher morals. I really enjoyed the descriptions and could easily identify with these characters. The secondary characters are also described well and you either like them a lot or readily dislike them intensely. Mimi and Tate are two such fabulous characters that you could read more about.

I thoroughly enjoyed the honesty in the story for example how Max is up front about wanting to be intimate with Sunny, there is no sneaky behaviour.

I will definitely be reading more books by this author.

New Release & Review: Kiss Cam by Anie Michaels

 

 

 

Title: Kiss Cam
Series: With A Kiss #1
Author: Anie Michaels
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 6, 2017

 

Blurb
Life was smooth sailing for Riley Smith. She’d earned a promotion, was living the dream as a single gal in a big city, and treated herself to one of her favorite things – a professional basketball game. In Riley’s opinion, nothing ruined a good basketball game like the halftime gag, the Kiss Cam. When the camera lands on her and the sexy stranger in the next seat over, peer pressure from the arena forces them to kiss. It was supposed to be quick, meaningless, and comical. Instead the kiss was hot, delectable, and left her reeling.It hadn’t been a great night for Camden Rogers, son of Portland’s mayor. On a date with a woman he didn’t care for out of obligation to his politician father, meeting the sassy and intelligent Riley was the last thing he expected. Kissing her, however, was the hottest thing he’d ever experienced. Never one to back down from a challenge, convincing his hesitant kissing partner they could be more would be his biggest accomplishment yet.

They came from two different worlds, a divide Riley was sure they couldn’t overcome, but Camden was convinced she was the one. Will Riley be able to let her guard down and let Camden in? Or will the Kiss Cam be their only sexy encounter?

I absolutely loved this book. Kiss Cam by Anie Michaels is the first book I have read by this author and I will gladly read others. She had 2 strong characters that had great chemistry with each other and the relationship transpired over the course of time not instantly. This book will have you laughing out loud often and swooning right along with Riley when Camden puts on the charm.

Crash by Lizzie Hart Stevens

Publication Date: February 2nd, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Crash, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Lizzie Hart Stevens is now LIVE!!!

lhscrashbookcover5_5x8_5_bw_300

Zane is cocky, a Grade A asshole and the most gorgeous bad boy I’ve ever laid eyes on.

I consider it my personal calling to prove to him he isn’t God’s gift to women. He embarrassed me, he got under my skin. And I can’t let him get away with it.

Until he shows up at my best friends wedding. All wearing his suit and tie, looking like a model straight out of GQ. And even though I thought I’d moved on, our connection was undeniable, the sex unbelievable. It was a night I’d never forget.

We can’t get enough of each other. Each night is better than the last, each touch bringing us closer than I ever imagined possible. Piece by piece he’s tearing down his walls, showing sides of himself I never knew existed.

But when tragedy strikes can we survive the fall out, or will we crash and burn?
