About As You Were

They say love is beautiful.

They lie.

Love is a dark, broken man with whiskey-colored eyes. Love is knowing he will never return my feelings. It is the final chord of a guitar riff as it bleeds into silence.

Love is Zeke Danton.

I convinced myself I needed him. I thought there was no one better to record my debut album with…

I was wrong.

Encased in layers of ice, he wears his pain like a protective shield.

Wanting what I can’t have might ruin me. But so help me, I crave his destruction.

This book is the second stand alone in the Rising Star series by Lee Piper and my first read from this author. In this book we get Zeke and Willow’s story and I really loved these two together. The author sure knows how to pull you in with her amazing characters and I had a lot of love for the secondary characters as well. I will for sure be going back and reading Shiloh and Reid’s story asap because holy hell those two are smoking hot! I really enjoyed this book. I laughed out loud several times, loved the angst that was thrown in the mix along with hot alpha males and loved the bond these characters all had. Not to mention I am always game for a good Rock Star romance.

“Love is a dark, broken man with whiskey colored eyes. Love is knowing he will never return my feelings. It is the final chord of a guitar riff as it bleeds into silence.”

Willow’s band recently won a competition and as a result they get to work with the hottest music producer in the industry, Zeke Danton. When I say hot I don’t mean just his talent, this man is a can I have a tissue to wipe the drool off my chin kind of hot. The chemistry between Willow and Zeke is crazy intense right from the get go. Thing is Zeke is not only talented and sexy as hell but he is moody, and all over the place. Willow knows she should stay away but with a man like Zeke sometimes that’s just not possible, no matter how much you think your heart may be broken in the process.

“I see you. I want you. Open up to me.”

I loved these two characters and how even though they were each others opposite in so many ways they just fit together so well. Willow was all sunshine and boldness and beauty while Zeke was all sexy, broody alpha male with some serious trust issues. They had to navigate through some pretty bumpy roads to be together. From crazy ass exes to career choices but these two had each others back and I was hoping their love for each other would see them through. I truly enjoyed Willow and Zeke’s story and can’t wait to read more from this author.

“Give me your storm, Zeke. All of it. Don’t tame the chaos. Don’t suppress who you are.”

Where Bad Boys are Ruined by Holly Renee ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review & Giveaway!

Release Date: December 5, 2018

Cover Design: Artist Regina Wamba

Synopsis

I ate leftover cupcakes and cracked macarons for breakfast.

I was ninety percent sure he simply ate up girls like me.

I was covered in paint splatters, cake batter, and sweat the first time I met him.

He was covered in badass tattoos and a smile that seemed to hold a secret I would never figure out.

Rule number 1 was never, under any circumstances, fall for the man who I wrote my lease check to.

So, I tucked him away in the “Fantasize Only” compartment of my brain and called it a day.

But he didn’t make it easy.

He was arrogant, funny, and the biggest flirt I had ever met.

Most of the time, I didn’t know if I was just a game to him.

If I didn’t know better, I’d say he was on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart, too.

Cold Cole Heart

by K Webster
Publication Date: November 14, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU | Paperback

I once was a hero.
Until she kept me as her captive, tortured me, and killed my brothers.
She bred a monster.
Nothing could stop me from seeking revenge.
But it was over so quickly—her easy death a mercy she didn’t deserve.

For a decade, the burning rage of what she did has transformed into something uncontrollable. Something I want to feed. Something I crave to unleash.

I want to make her pay.
Over and over and over again.

Finding the evil, spoiled women sates my ravenous, vengeful soul.
I hunt. I capture. I destroy.
Slowly. So slowly.
One, two, three, four, five…
And now six.

I’m wicked and sadistic.
I am Cold Cole Heart.
My mission is death and their payment to me has come due.

Number six thinks she is different.
Yet when I look at her, I see them.
She will pay.
They always do.

Cole Heart was once a hero. He gave his all for his country and returned broken and tortured. Now he’s a monster that needs revenge for his family…his team. He will make them pay. The evil and spoiled women that think the world owes them something. He stalks and captures his prey. Natalie is number six. She thinks she can stay with him. But none of them do.

“My lips crash to hers again. I want to taste her soul. If it’s as innocent as she likes to pretend, I want to lick and bite and devour it. I want to inhale it. I want to smear it all over my fucking body.”

This made my little dark and twisted heart grin evilly. I loved Captain Cole Heart and his malevolent acts. He really got creative in his torture and Natalie was the perfect victim. Captive books are my jam and I really was in the mood for some crazy when I picked this story up. It spoke to all of my demons and I was not disappointed with the story flow and how it ended. Perfection.

If you like dark or taboo stories, you cannot go wrong with K. Webster. I still am catching up with all depraved things from her, but I will find and consume them all. I don’t have many more to go.

Perfection!!! This book just calls to my dark read heart and I devoured it. I loved the story and characters. I loved how both of them were intense and although submissive she wasn’t a doormat. This was definitely an angsty read with lots going on. The ending had me crying and wanting more. I wanted to scream actually! I can’t wait to see what happens with Pet next. Amazing read!!!

Excerpt

 

Beautiful, isn’t it?” He presses his front against my back, eliminating the space between us. My heart races as I feel his erection through his suit pants.

I shiver. “Will you hurt me in here, Sir?”

“Of course.”

“Will you make me cry?”

“I usually do.”

I steel my jaw, because the way he talks about my pain, my torment, is just cruel. “Then what are you waiting for?”

“An audience,” he whispers, his tongue darting out to lick the space where my shoulder meets my neck. I close my eyes, bring my arm up behind his head, and slide my fingers into his hair as he devours my flesh. My body is electric, on fire, and buzzing with need. His words terrify me, and yet I’ve never been more turned on.

One unfortunate decision had bought me a life sentence, serving time alongside the gang I’d worked years to avoid. My affiliation with Union 21 had wreaked havoc all around me.

Then came Diamond.

In a world filled with neon-pink lights, glitter, and rhinestones, she was a flawless gem. While she didn’t realize her worth, I recognized her value—priceless.

I’d stop at nothing to have her, even if that meant going against the most powerful drug lord around.

Friends come and go, but Diamond is forever.

Well…I am kinda on the fence with this book. It was a great storyline. I felt like it was addictive and exciting to read. A little on the darker side. It was also a super sexy read. Which is always a plus. I guess where I am having an issue is that the conflict should have been a little bigger with a little more bang involved. Other than that I really loved the entire book and characters. There was some hot and sweet and just down and dirty as well. Just what I was looking for. Walls is a new to me author and I’ll definitely check out what else she has going on.
