“The feeling I have in this very moment, after not seeing her for so long, will haunt me forever, reminding me why I left to begin with.”

For as long as I can remember, Easton Crews has been off-limits. As much as it kills me, that’s never going to change.

After his little disappearing act three years ago, then suddenly showing up out of nowhere, I shouldn’t want anything to do with him.

It doesn’t matter how beautiful he still is. Or how close we once were. It shouldn’t matter that my entire body lights on fire with need whenever he gets close.

He chose the worst possible time to leave without so much as a goodbye.

However, just like the first day he walked into our home, I’m drawn to him, needing him near me just as badly as I need air to breathe, and I can’t stand it.

I want to hate him. I know I should hate him. But hating him is the last thing he’ll let me do.

I push, he pulls harder, until I’m completely wrapped up in him, my mind lost in the one person who is forbidden—the one person I’ve always loved, even when he belonged to someone else.

Easton was never meant to be mine. It took me years to come to terms with that and now that I finally have, he’s here, right in front of me, more irresistible than ever.

The part I fear the most about that—he’s the one person capable of completely wrecking my world.

 “I’m not leaving until you take all of your hate out on me. Let me feel it. All of it. Every dirty look. Every nasty word. I will have it all before I leave. Stop hiding from me.”

This. Book. A couple years ago I was talking to V about stories she had going on and she sent me a snippet of this one. I immediately started begging for the entire thing. Completely enamored with the characters, the story, the emotions and I couldn’t get enough. When she picked this one up again I knew it would be epic and completely different from anything she had written before. I would get this book literally sentences and paragraphs at a time and I ain’t even gonna pretend I didn’t want to wait. I begged for this book like crazy.

Easton and Kota are so special to me. So many parts of this book I can relate to. The emotional parts especially. I laughed and cried. I was mad. I swooned. This book literally has all the great things.

Victoria did and phenomenal job with this book. I’m so grateful for this story. It was addicting and completely amazing. Don’t miss this epic friends to lovers/forbidden romance. It’s one that I’ll always cherish and devour time and time again!!

 EXCERPT

She stops and turns around when she hears my boots crunching in the gravel behind her. The cold look in her eyes is almost enough to freeze my damn heart. “Don’t you dare follow me, Easton. Turn back around and go inside.” With pained eyes, she points at the building and screams. “GO!”

After yelling at me, she immediately turns back around and starts walking again to get away from me.

Ignoring her demand, I stalk toward her, wrapping my arm around her waist right as she attempts to straddle her motorcycle.

“You’re not driving home,” I say, while squeezing her waist and pulling her against me. “I get that you want fast right now. That you need a rush to clear your head. Trust me, I know you. I’m the one that got you addicted, but you’ve had too much to drink.”

“You don’t need to worry about what I do,” she growls out in anger, before elbowing me in the stomach in an effort to get away. “Dammit! Let me go. I need to leave. I can’t be here.”

She’s still trying to fight me, so I carefully lower her to the gravel and trap her under my body, pinning one of her legs underneath mine. “Give me your keys,” I growl, an inch away from her lips. “Don’t make me force them out of your hand. I can pin you under my body all night if I fucking have to, Kota.”

“Yeah, I don’t think my brother would like that much.” She attempts to buck me off with her hips, but it does nothing.

I smirk down at her and push my hips closer against her body. “Fight me all you want. I’ll win.”

“Fuck you, Easton!” Breathing heavily, she lays still and fights to control her breathing from below me. After a few seconds, her eyes meet mine, and she grins. “Fetch.” She tosses her keys across the parking lot and then pushes my chest, speaking against my lips. “Now. Get. Off.”

I release a hard breath and take a moment to analyze her face. It feels like forever since I’ve seen it.

Her big, gray eyes are framed by long lashes and her dainty, freckled nose is now pierced and flaring out in anger.

Catching me off guard, she pushes her way out from under me and closes her eyes as she runs her hands over her face and lays back. “Just leave me be. I don’t want to be anywhere near you. I’ll have Hope take me home.”

“You really mean that?” I question with a tight jaw. “You still hate me after three damn years?”

“How can I not?” she bites out, before jumping to her feet, ignoring my hand as I reach it out to help her. “You tore my heart out. Now get out of my way.”

I bite my lip, holding in my anger as she pushes past me and disappears inside.

I’m still standing out here with my hands in my hair when she walks back out a few minutes later following Hope to her old, beat-up truck.

My heart pounds relentlessly as I watch them hop inside and drive away.

You tore my heart out.

Those five words hurt like hell. She’s always been good at making me feel.

My life is a mess.

I’m walking around with a black eye. My position on the hockey team is questionable at best, and if that’s not bad enough, I think I’m falling for my dead girlfriend’s best friend.

Every day, it’s a fight to feel alive, and yet, I drink to numb the pain. Everyone is standing back, watching me fall apart.

Everyone except Hannah. No matter how many times I push, she’s there to pull me back. She refuses to let me spiral any deeper. And after one kiss—she’s impossible to ignore.

Unfortunately, it seems she and I aren’t the only thing being kept a secret.

Anyone who has ever experienced losing someone you love knows that life is broken into two parts. One part is life with the person you loved and the other is trying desperately to find a new normal after that person is gone. It’s a heartbreaking thing to experience and Nick found that out at the young age of seventeen when his girlfriend Mia died. He is completely lost and deals with his grief in the only way he knows how but that his friends and family do not approve of. He is constantly drinking, fighting and hooking up with random girls. My heart broke for him over and over as he tried to find himself again and deal with life without the one person her thought would be his forever.

“The thing is, there’s nothing left of me for them to take. Mia took it all with her last breath.”

Hannah made a promise to her best friend Mia before she passed away to watch out for Nick and make sure he is ok. Hannah is trying desperately to make good on what she said she would though Nick doesn’t make it easy at all. The thing is Hannah may just be in love with her dead best friend’s boyfriend. After months of them hanging out and trying to help him find his way out of the darkness, it seems he feels the same way.

“I’m going to kiss you, and once I do, everything is going to change.”

I honestly wasn’t sure how I felt at first when these two started to get together so soon after Mia passed away. They both felt the same way too, like maybe people wouldn’t understand so they tried to hide how they felt. It becomes such an emotional roller coaster for them because they have this pull they feel towards one another but they both feel like they are betraying Mia and her memory. I was a big fan of Hannah. She is a force to be reckoned with and Nick was just so lost I was hoping they could help each other find a new normal. As much as I wasn’t sure how I felt at first about them getting together so soon as the story went on and secrets are revealed, I wanted them both to be able to love each other the way they wanted to see that you can’t help who you love. This book kind of ended on a cliffhanger with things up in the air and I can’t wait for the next one to see if Nick and Hannah get the chance they deserve.

“You happened out of nowhere, and I realized I can still feel the way I did. All was not lost when she died. The stars still shine up there, and the earth still spins, and that’s because of you. We’re just under a different sky, Hannah.”

Excerpt

Her fingers rub against each other like they’re trying to control themselves. Does she want to reach out and touch me? The thought of her being nervous makes me smirk. Her eyes scan up my legs, to my bare chest, and stop on my lips. She bites down on her own, and I can’t help but notice the pink hue on her chest.

She’s losing it. There’s a power in that, an exhilaration that’s hard to ignore. I need to remember to lose the shirt more often.

“I never noticed…” she whispers, moving her hands down to her sides. “I mean, I noticed. I just never…”

“Allowed yourself too long to appreciate it.” I move toward her.

“Right.” Her chest rises and falls rapidly, like she has zero control of herself.

“And what about now? Are you going to allow yourself?” My last step brings me to her feet, and I straddle one leg while standing above her.

Her chin lifts, and her hair skims over her back. “It’s probably not a good idea.”

“Sometimes the bad ideas are the ones that change our lives, Hannah. Let me change everything.” I lean down, inching my lips closer to hers. “I know you said you didn’t want me to kiss you yet, but…”

Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 4, 2019 

BLURB

A secret society.
A forbidden crush.
And an unsolved murder…

Emily Danes expected the tough classes at Campbell College, one of the most exclusive and prestigious universities in the world. She expected the ivy-covered halls. She expected the money.

She didn’t see Wolf Astor coming.

Obscenely wealthy, socially connected, and heart-stoppingly gorgeous, he’s everything she ever dreamed of in a man.

He’s also a total prick.

But at a place like Campbell College, there’s no escape. Not from Wolf, and not from the secrets hidden behind the graceful facades of the campus.

With every day that passes, she’s drawn deeper into the underbelly of the wealthy and privileged at Campbell: a secret society known as the Skulls & Thorns.

And with a murderer loose on campus, she’s running out of time to escape.

The blurb of this book really sucked me in. Promise me secret societies, suspense, hot guys and murder and I am all in. Emily worked her ass off to get into Campbell College and she certainly isn’t going to let Wolf in all his mysterious brooding hotness get in her way of doing what she came to Campbell for. A fresh start and to concentrate on her education. But Emily who is by nature curious is drawn into the mystery surrounding the death of a student that was part of the mysterious Skulls and Bones secret, yet not so secret, society on campus. They’re rich, elite and her new frenemy/these two are superhot for each other. Wolf just happens to be their golden boy leader.

“Alexander Astor, or Wolf, or whatever he is calling himself these days…he is a prick. He may be hot, but I’d do better staying away from guys like him. That much I am sure of.”

Wolf saw something he wasn’t supposed to and now everything he thought to be true feels like a lie buried under the mystery that is Skulls and Bones. His main focus this year? Find out who killed Asher and why. What was not supposed to be his main focus? Emily Danes, the fierce and beautiful pixie haired freshman he just can’t get off his mind.

“I knew there was something about her that called to me the first time I saw her.”

Can the two of them figure out who killed Asher or will the secrets surrounding his death stay within the walls of Rose House? Ok, so I really did enjoy Wolf and Emily’s relationship. They were sweet and definitely had some fantastic chemistry. I will say the first half of the book was a little slow going for me and I struggled with it at times. The second half was a lot better and I liked the whole mystery part but then that ending? Like what was that? It felt very rushed like the author just decided hey, this is it and I feel like it ended without some really important questions answered. It wasn’t really a cliffhanger as I really am not sure there are even more books. It was more of a I’ll just leave you half satisfied here. SO while the second half was better, I obviously was not a fan of the ending. I am interested in reading more from this duo in the future.

“The door of Rose House slams shut with all the finality of the gates of hell slamming shut behind a newly departed soul.”

EXCERPT

Pulling my two heavy textbooks for this class out of the stack too, I arrange everything nicely. Just as I am getting my brand new pencils ready, I am startled by a loud bang. My desk mate drops his books on the countertop and sits down, looking at me askance.

I startle to realize that it’s the blond Greek god I ran from only yesterday. Tall and broad-shouldered, he wears his black denim and dark blue tee shirt incredibly well. He knows it too, judging by his posture. He perches on his stool and crosses his arms, expectant. Perfectly unkempt sandy blond hair, dark brows spread wide over the darkest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, a patrician nose, two incredible cheekbones, and the most expressive lips…

This guy is fucking hot, excuse my French.

Which are currently smirking at me. I knew hot guys back home in Prineville. Mostly I avoided them, truth be told. But this guy is on another level. He is so dazzling that he could work in television… and bad tv just so happens to be my weakness.

Being around this guy is enough to make me rethink the bright yellow tee shirt dress I am wearing. I want more than anything to tug the hem down and smooth my hands over my black tights, but I don’t.

Instead I blush, fumbling to introduce myself. Sticking my hand straight out and tossing my messy blonde hair back, I try for an authoritative voice. “I’m Emily Danes.”

At the front of the classroom, the professor clears his throat, ready to start talking. My eyes dart to him, but then he reaches for his bunch of tissues again. Glancing back to my partner, I see him eye me up and down in a totally unsubtle way.

At last, he leans forward and shakes my hand. His skin against mine is hot. I bite my lip, refusing to let a little thing like instant animal attraction do me in.

“I’m Wolf,” he says, his voice low and gravelly. He looks me over once more. Then he arches a brow, his smirk deepening. “Did you find all of your panties last night?”

My cheeks instantly go the exact color of a ripe tomato. I lick my lips and frown. What am I supposed to say to that?

Everyone has a best friend. Mine just happens to be Dr. Christian Gallagher— the gorgeous, green-eyed heart surgeon who wants to have a baby with me.

Yes, you read that correctly.

When my mother approached me on my thirty-third birthday with a brochure for egg freezing, it was a glaring reminder that my biological clock is ticking toward its expiration date. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom and had a plan — one that was destroyed when I caught my professional hockey player husband in bed with another woman.

Despite my broken heart I still believe in love. I want the happily ever after, but I also want a child desperately and won’t settle in order to make it happen.

That’s why when I decided to take my mother’s advice, Christian came up with his own plan: Let’s have a baby together.

It’s a bad idea. A really, really bad idea. And yet…I can’t stop thinking about how great it could be.

There’s just one condition. Before we have sex (oh, yes, we’re doing this the old fashioned way!) Christian is adamant we go on three dates.

Sounds easy, but it’s not.I thought sex would be the hard part, but the dates are only making me fall for the man I’ve known almost my entire life.

Whoever said sex doesn’t change things never went to bed with their best friend.

This is a cute, friends to lovers book and was fun to read. It did drag a bit by reiterating some stuff but picked right back up. Christian and Meadow have been friends for years and they have vacationed with their families, spent holidays together. Both of them have had huge crushes on each other but naturally the other doesn’t know it. Not only are they best friends but they work together. Christian is a top notch heart surgeon and Meadow is a nurse who happens to work at Christian’s fathers office.

Meadow has had a failed marriage and is still licking her wounds but her biological clock is ticking and since there is no new men on the horizon, she takes a cue from her mother who suggests freezing her eggs for when she does find someone. Once Christian gets wind of this idea, he has one of his own. For them to have a baby together and not by freezing her eggs…the old fashioned way. Can two friends who have secretly have feelings for each other have sex to create a baby and not fall even harder for each other? Can Meadow stand another heartbreak? Can Christian who is so driven to be the best, have time for a baby? Will he lose Meadow as a best friend if this back fires in there faces? Can Meadow keep her feelings for Christian in control?

Watching these two plan for a baby and get to the point where they have to do the “deed” was so fun to watch. Not only are there some comical moments, it was a romantic story as well. Love scenes were steamy and I loved watching these two realize that maybe a baby won’t be such a bad thing for their friendship after all. Could it make them even closer?

This was a super cute book and was definitely a feel good love story.

First and foremost I really liked this book. The flow was amazing and I devoured it. I love the characters and their chemistry. I wanted more though. I felt like maybe it lost a little bit of steam from book one but by the end, everything worked out as it should. I’ll also be honest and say Lennox really ticked me off a bit. But man oh man, did he get redeemed.

Overall this duet is a must read. I loved it. The sassiness, the silliness and even the seriousness of it was addicting. Magan Vernon nailed this duet.

Excerpt

As soon as I opened the front door, Juniper and the dog ran to each other like they were lifelong friends who hadn’t seen the other in years.

“Princess Cupcake, you’re here!” Juniper cooed, taking the little eight-pound spiky brown-haired dog in her arms. She petted her behind her perky little ears, the dog closing her eyes and panting in response.

“Princess Cupcake?” Roo asked.

I shrugged, looking up to see her and her sister both standing in the doorway.

I was afraid after our talk this afternoon that Rachel wouldn’t come. But seeing her there had me smiling even wider.

“I guess Juniper and I may have to discuss a name change,” I said, stepping aside and letting everyone into the foyer.

“Come on, Princess Cupcake, come see my room.” Juniper and Ariana charged up the stairs.

“Hey, be careful. A dog is a live animal, not a toy,” I yelled on deaf ears since the girls had already ascended the stairs and rounded the corner in a flurry of giggles.

“I’d better check to make sure Squeaky, err, Princess Cupcake is okay,” Roo said before bounding up the stairs after the girls.

I waited a full five seconds before I wrapped my arms around Rachel, crushing my lips to hers.

She stilled as her first reaction then slowly her body melted against mine. Her mouth parting as our tongues met.

Her kisses were sweet like her vanilla lip gloss and strawberry bubblegum. I wanted to stay in that moment with her. To get lost in those lips.

But reality slapped me back when she put her hands on my chest, gently pushing against me until she broke our kiss.

“As much as I enjoy that, I have a feeling there’s something else going on in that pretty blond head of yours. Like maybe you’re still thinking about L.A.?” She raised her eyebrows.

I swallowed hard. “Maybe.”

She blinked. “So, is getting the dog a deciding factor and we’re just here for moral support?” Her words trailed as she caught her swollen lip between her teeth.

Letting out a deep breath, I leaned back, dropping my hands from her waist. “I don’t know, Rach. I’ll be honest. I’m still twisted about the whole thing. I guess I figured the dog would help make this decision.”

“Seriously? After everything earlier today and you still don’t know what you want.” She shook her head, muttering under her breath.

I winced as if her words verbally slapped me. “I know. It’s hard to say no to Trish. It’s a great opportunity in L.A. for Juni and me.”

Title: Right Where I Want You
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 28, 2018

There’s a thin line between love and hate . . . and it cuts right through the middle of their office. 

Bad boys? They run right over good girls like Georgina Keller. But after a confidence-shattering breakup, she’s determined not to let anyone at her new workplace push her around—least of all the brooding creative director, a “bad boy of publishing” who’s made it clear she’s enemy #1.

Sebastian Quinn’s taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women may have gotten him to the top of a leading New York magazine, but the reputation that made him is suddenly threatening to end his career.

Georgina can help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but in order to do that, she’ll have to start at the top—and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction will distract her.

Because if Sebastian gets her right where he wants her, it means she’s going down.

Georgina Keller is the fixer…the one you bring in when the company needs a PR makeover. After a bad breakup, she’s determined to be more of her alter ego “George” and quit letting people walk all over her. Sebastian Quinn has been pegged as the media world’s bad boy. He’s the Creative Director at Modern Man and is proud of its unapologetically macho stories and advice. From day one, these two clash and sparks are flying. Will Georgina be able to fit into this testosterone filled environment and keep things strictly business?

“Maybe I couldn’t help being attracted to Georgina’s hot and cold personality, but acting on it wasn’t an option. Not only was she the first person to threaten my career in a long time, but I’d vowed to remove any ice from my life. It was only warm, nice girls from here on out.”

I don’t know why but there was just something about this business enemies to lovers story that ended up being exactly what I was in the mood for. There was so much chemistry with Sebastian and Georgina’s verbal sparring that I found myself anxiously awaiting for them to cross that line. I also loved that deep down they were both good and genuine people. They both just had trust issues to work through. I was just sucked in by their feisty banter and office politics and it just made it addictive to read. A nice book for my Christmas break.

I’ve enjoyed all of Jessica Hawkins’ stories and find myself enthralled by her characters and their complicated lives. This story definitely ranks right up there with the rest of the amazing stories and intriguing lives she creates.

Excerpt

At the stadium’s concession stand, I took a tall stool, putting Georgina and I at eye level since she stood. “So, why didn’t you kiss François?” I asked. “Bad breath?”
She gasped into her hand. “My breath is fine.”
“I meant his. I’m sure yours is pure relish on a hotdog.”
She made a face. “Gross.”
“I happen to love relish,” I said. “But does François?”
Each time I said François with flourish, she flinched. I didn’t care. Something about him bugged me—I just couldn’t put my finger on it.
“We didn’t kiss because you interrupted us,” she pointed out.
“So? If I were in his position, and we both wanted that kiss, I wouldn’t let anyone stop me.”
Frank and I are clicking,” she said, scowling. “There was even mention of spending time at his summerhouse.”
“Hamptons?”
She coughed into her fist. “Boca Raton.”
The idea of Georgina spending a summer with him in Boca Raton was tragic enough that I almost smiled. I got the sense she was playing up the date. If it was so great, why wasn’t she sitting here with him? And why was I more relieved than smug about that? “Meanwhile, Justin and I will be clamming in Montauk.”
“You two should really just make it official and announce your love to the world.”
“But then I wouldn’t get to flirt with pretty girls.”
“For someone who pretends to have as much game as you,” she said, “I still haven’t seen you successfully flirt with any girls since I’ve known you.”
I smirked. “How do you know I’m not flirting with you right now?”
