BLURB

I’d spent my life as a plaything. A toy to be used by powerful and deadly men in whatever way they pleased. So I was just as surprised as anyone else that I had feelings left. Feelings that lead me to fight for true love while damning myself.

And that’s just where this story begins.

Desperate and alone I turned back to my childhood home. The first wicked place I’d known with the darkest villain among them. My stepfather. But I could weather his storm in exchange for safety. I had to.

What I didn’t expect to find was Niall McDonough. The only man I’d ever really loved had reappeared only to become one of them. Someone ruthless and cruel. He wants to ruin me. As my stepfather’s savage soldier he might just do it.

But then again, twelve years ago a fortune teller predicted I’d need just such a soldier to save both my heart and soul.

****This book contains graphic sex, violence, uncomfortable sexual encounters, and dub con. It’s intended for mature audiences, over 18 only****

Ok, so I don’t want to really give too much away. I think this book was a unique read. I will say the first few pages I was a little confused but was glad I forged forward. This is a dark read and had me re-reading a few times because I was thinking…”did I just read that”.

Niall and Drea have a past when they were younger so in love. Due to unfortunate circumstances they broke up and have led extremely dark lives separately and Niall hates Drea now. Not 100% but close. She has been a literal sex slave and he is just evil. Their paths cross and Niall welcomes it because he is watching her get payback. But can he really watch? Do old feelings start to surface and break the walls he has so carefully built. Can he watch her be raped and tortured and passed around?

Drea’s feelings for Niall have never gone away. She thought breaking his heart was saving him and giving him a chance at a normal life. What she didn’t expect was he would choose a dark, lonely life for an enemy of hers.

Watching these two rehash old memories and the truth come to light was emotional and some scenes were just brutal. This was a standalone and I will definitely be reading the other books in this series.

EXCERPT

“My, my, this is interesting. Perhaps Deirdre is an appropriate name after all.”

“What the shit is going on here?” My mind was clearing. Sort of.

“I’m reading your future, darling. Your dismal and sorrowful future.”

I felt like I’d been hit. Hard. And I knew what it was like to be punched, slapped, kicked… I tried to shake off the list.

“What does it say?” My words were shaky, no matter how I tried to steady them.

“You will cause much unrest in this little corner of the world.”

The hair on the back of my neck stood up. No, was on the tip of my tongue. My mom had gotten me out of a life of mobsters and murderers. I wasn’t an Ulster anymore. I wouldn’t be. I was just another teenaged girl wondering about her future.

“Rivers of blood. Chaos and pain. Betrayal all at your hand,” she mused in partial phrases. “You will need a soldier at your side if you wish to be free of it all.”

“A soldier?” I swallowed, sorrow swelling in my heart.

“Someone to wage war. Someone ruthless and brutal and savage.” She arched her eyebrow. “If you don’t find him, you both end up dead. Just like the legend.”

I rolled my eyes with a wild grunt and shoved up from the table. “Convenient legend,” I snarked under my breath.

“Heed my words or don’t, it makes no matter to me. It’s your fate and your fate alone that you have to face.” She shrugged before unwinding to stand. Incense swirled around her again as she walked toward the back corner of the room.

I shoved up from the stupid pillows on the stupid floor of the stupid Irish gypsy and started to stomp off.

“Today, lightning will strike, Deirdre of the sorrows.” Her voice seemed far away, too far away. “Take that as a sign of what’s been set in motion.”

After that cliffhanger we were left with in a Love Song for Liars, I was waiting…rather impatiently I may add…for more of Annie and Tyler’s story. We all knew it wasn’t over. A love like that just doesn’t end like where it was left off at and I had to know what happened next. Where the author would take their story. A Love Song for Rebels picks up over a year after Tyler left Annie brokenhearted. Now they’re in the same city and at the same performing arts school. A place where they are both hoping their dreams become a reality. But what does that mean for the two of them? Is this their second chance or will their dreams take them in different directions? This book had it all. Tons of angst, much needed forgiveness, a beautiful sacrifice and a whole lot of love. Oh and it also a huge ass cliffhanger that had me freaking the hell out.

“He ripped my heart out more than a year ago, but it healed. Maybe it’s not the same shape it was, or the same size, but I patched it up with ambition and resolve. There are no cracks in it anymore.”

After Tyler left, Annie took things into her own hands. Where she could have been broken, she picked herself up and was determined to do whatever it takes to succeed and be seen. When her Dad says no to Vanier, what’s a girl to do? Well, obviously just go anyways and try really damn hard not to let your Dad find out. So off to college Annie goes…a wiser and stronger version of the girl we knew in the first book. But what she didn’t expect was to see Tyler again so soon. For all the feelings that came flooding back to the surface when the boy she once loved is standing in front of her in the place she wants to stay hidden. Asking for something she doesn’t know if she is ready to give.

“You taught me to want things I never let myself want. Fuck Annie. You taught me to dream.”

Tyler thought walking away from Annie was what he had to do for the both of them. But he never forgot her…never stopped loving the only person who truly saw him. So while he was shocked and totally unprepared to see her again at Vanier of all places, he was ready to throw down and fight for their second chance. With so many secrets and obstacles in their way does their love stand a chance? Okay so I completely loved Tyler in this book and the last. He was just amazing. I love how the author gave them both time to grow up in a sense. Both Annie and Tyler were different people when they cross paths again, but the love they shared was still there just waiting to be set free. I love how they both were so selfless when it came to each other. Two of my favorite characters I have read in a long time. We were also introduced to some kick ass secondary characters that I just absolutely loved in this book. The only issue I had with this book was when they meet up again it’s kind of like falling into old habits. It was a tad quick and I think I would have loved more of a build up…a tad more suspense. But I did love this story and I completely love Annie and Tyler. I’m hoping Jax redeems himself in the next book because right now he’s way at the bottom of my list of people I love in this story. I did hate the cliffhanger and not because I hate cliffhangers but because why oh why did you leave us like that Piper Lawson? NOOO. I need the third book now!!

LONDON PREP: BOOK 2
By Jillian Dodd
Release Date: May 21

It’s only my second week at Kensington School, and things are getting complicated.

I thought my relationship with Harry was finished, but he came over late one night, apologized, and asked me to be his girlfriend. I swooned right there, in the middle of the street.
And we are definitely back together.

He calls me babe, brings me flowers, and is planning our first official date.
Our relationship is growing, and I’m starting to want him in ways I never expected.

 I’m falling for him.

But then there’s Noah.
I live in his house and share a bathroom with him, and we’ve had a few intense moments.
But nothing compared to him sauntering into the room, declaring that want him and that, at some point, he’s going to give in to me.
I know!
The nerve.
I’m not sure how I’m going to tell him that I’m dating his best friend again.
Or how I’m going to keep my eyes off his shirtless chest.

With tensions running high between Noah and me, Harry’s ongoing family issues, my new friendship with Naomi, and Mohammad’s party-planning skills, things are getting crazy.

But the even crazier part is—I’m really starting to love it here.

Book Two picks up right where we left off at the end on one. My emotions have been up and down as Mallorie’s life is full of drama knowing she has two weeks left. She follows her heart but it’s pulled in two different directions. I love the drama and tender moments with each of the guys. My little ol’ soul can’t take the confusion much longer. I’m dying to know what’s going to happen the last week she’s there. Will these friendships survive when Miss America returns to her home?

Excerpt

“Do you want to dance?”

She nods.

I hear my brother make a noise and pretend I didn’t. She said yes, and I’m going to cling to that.

Here might be the last time I ever get to hold her in my arms, and I’m going to take it.

“I love this song.”

I love you.

“Why is that?” I ask.

Her arms move to my chest, and I wonder if she can feel the pounding of my heart. My nerves are bowstrings, being pulled taut before the arrow is ready to fly. Everything inside of me is strained, but I keep it together.

Sydney and I move, the world falling away as it always does when I am with her. Gone is the hurt of my past, the uncertainty of my present, and the regret of the future ahead. Right now, I have her.

She’s here, in my arms, where she’s meant to be.

I don’t care if the sky lights on fire because she’s all I see.

“Listen to her.” Sydney’s voice is quiet and pensive. “Listen to her talk about him giving up and her asking him to stay.”

And I do. I hear the words, and I swear that she’s singing to us.

“Don’t tell me it’s too late,” Emily croons.

“I won’t give up that easy.

Don’t call me darlin’ and tell me that you’re leavin’.

Don’t walk away.

Stop pushing me when you know you want to hold on.

It could be so easy for us, baby.

I’ve been here, but you don’t see me.

Don’t let go if you’re not ready for me to walk away.” The acoustic guitar takes over as her voice drifts off.

“Syd,” I say her name as both a plea to let go and hold on.

Her hands grip my shirt tighter. “Don’t. Don’t let go. Don’t push me away.”

I see the tears in her eyes. I don’t want to push her away. I want to hold her close, kiss her senseless, and love her until she knows it in every fiber of her being that she’s everything I want.

I see her. I feel her. I know her in my bones, but I won’t be able to be who she needs.

No matter how much I wish it weren’t the case, I can’t give her the life she wants with a husband and babies. All I can offer her is a friendship that has an expiration date because once my six-months is up and she has moved, I know I won’t allow myself to see her again.

The song ends, and the two of us stop moving, just watching the other.

The spell that was surrounding us seems to break and awareness fills her gaze. Her fingers loosen and drop from where they had been clutching my shirt and she takes a step back.

The loss of her is felt everywhere. My heart doesn’t seem to beat as strongly, the cold hits my chest, making it hard to breathe, and the emptiness from her loss leaves me weak.

For those minutes I held her, the world made sense. And now … I need to leave.

This was a great read!! A great storyline, well written and super likeable characters. Cohen is a young, hot, single dad and half owner of a very popular bar. His ex left him right after their son was born and signed over all her rights and ran away with another man. To say Cohen has bitter feelings for her and her family is an understatement. He loathes them all…maybe.

When his son takes ill and has to be rushed to the emergency room, he is taken back to see his doctor. Jamie, the doctor, is his ex’s sister. He has not allowed anyone from his ex’s family to see or be part of his young son’s life. However, he has a soft spot for Jamie and always has. He has always had an attraction to her, but she was young and his girlfriend’s little sister. But on more than one occasion has he had the thought “what if I picked the other sister”.

Jamie, is a young successful ER doctor and there’s no love lost for her evil sister. She has a soft spot for Cohen…always had a crush on him. Now that she sees her nephew, her heart melts. It kicks off when she asks to be part of his life and Cohen has a tough decision to make.

It was so much fun watching these two deal with old, new feelings and a cute little five year old that draws them all together. Of course, there are a few bumps in the road that had me on the edge of my seat but I’ll keep those to myself. It is well written and I couldn’t put it down until I was done. I definitely look forward to any future books in this series.

Chapter One

Jamie Five Years Later

Nine hours down.

Three to go. Three hours until I can go home, finish that box of Thin Mints I shouldn’t have bought, and binge-watch a show on Netflix.

Netflix and cookies. Netflix and single. Netflix and story of my life. “Tell me he finally agreed?” Lauren, our charge nurse, asks—referring to the appendicitis patient who’s been refusing an appendectomy all night.

I nod. “After his wife promised to buy him a new TV.” She scoffs. “I’d love to say someone being bribed to have life-saving surgery is a shocker, but after working in the ER for so long, I’m not easily shooketh.”

“Tell me about it.” I glance around the emergency room. “What’s next for me?” It’s been a slow night at Anchor Ridge Memorial Hospital, and as much as that’s a good thing, it can get boring.

She points down the hall. “Exam room three. Five-year-old with a fever.” Her tone turns bubbly as she wiggles her shoulders. “Dad is super hot, by the way.”

I shake my head and tap my knuckles against the triage desk. “I’ll let you know if I need anything.” “Ask him for his number,” she half-whispers with a thumbs-up. I roll my eyes and dismissively wave my hand. “Absolutely not.” “All work and no play makes Jamie a grumpy doctor.” “Yeah, yeah, yeah.” I spin on my heel and walk to the room. The door is cracked, and I knock, snatching a pair of latex gloves on my way in. “Hello, I’m Dr.—” I stop, stumble back two steps, and cover my mouth with my hand. Holy crap. My body tenses, and as soon as my gaze meets his, his jaw flexes.

I struggle for words as anger and disgust line his face. Words I’d planned if this moment ever happened. Unfortunately, those words become a scared bitch and run away. “Cohen,” is all I manage in a whisper. He stands tall from his chair, his narrowed eyes pinned to me, and moves to the side of the bed, blocking my view of the patient.

Lauren’s words hit me. “Five-year-old …” My attention slides from Sir Pissed Off, and I shift to the left. “Oh my God,” I whisper, gaping at the little boy in the bed. A little boy whose eyes are sleepy and nose is red and irritated. Those sleepy eyes, a walnut-brown with a slight slant, match his father’s. The same with his thick ash-brown hair. But the dimple in his chin and heart-shaped face match hers. “Is this …?” My hand shakes when I point at him. It’s a dumb question. Even if he says no, he’ll be a liar. “What are you doing here?” he repeats, his tone harsh. If I wasn’t at a loss for words, my smart-ass self would throw out something along the lines of, What do you think, dumbass? I’m sporting a doctor’s jacket with my name embroidered on it.

But I don’t. Because I can’t. It’s a challenge, wrapping my head around them being here, let alone dragging out my sarcasm. “I’m your doctor,” I finally say before signaling to the boy. “I’m his doctor.” Sound cool. Confident. You’re the fucking professional here, Jamie. “We want a different doctor,” he hisses, his voice low enough so only I can hear. “I’m the only doctor on shift tonight.” I’m speaking to Cohen, but the boy holds my interest. He’s watching this exchange, his eyes pinging back and forth between his father and me with curiosity on his tired face.

“We’ll go to another hospital then.” “Why, Dad?” the boy whines, sniffling. “I don’t feel good, and what if I puke in the car?” “I want another doctor.” His broad shoulders draw back. He raises a brow when I hold up a finger, turn, and scurry out of the room. I rush over to Lauren. “Can you watch the boy in three for a minute? I need to talk to his father privately.”

She peeks up at me from her computer and tilts her head to the side. “Yeah … sure.” Cohen is pacing the room when we walk in. “A word,” I say, jerking my head toward the doorway. Cohen’s attention darts to the boy, and he delivers a gentle smile. “I’ll be right back, buddy.” He gives him a quick peck on the head and swings his arm toward the door, his eyes cold. “After you, Your Highness.”

Lauren throws me a curious glance when he walks past her, and I shrug as if this isn’t about to be awkward city up in here.

As we leave, I hear Lauren asking the boy what his favorite cartoon is. Cohen keeps his distance while I lead us into a private room, the one reserved for breaking bad news to families.

I speak as soon as I shut the door., “Cohen—”

Too bad he doesn’t let me get more than his name out. Rude. His deep-set eyes level on me. “This is a conflict of interest, Jamie. The nurse can help us. We don’t need you.”

“We don’t need you.” The memories of the last time he said those words to me smack into me like a headache. It was the last time I saw him. The last time he looked at me with the same resentment. Either he doesn’t realize how hard his insult hit me or he doesn’t care. I snort, anger biting at me. “What do you think I’m going to do, huh? Kidnap him?” “Considering who you’re related to, who knows?” “Wow.” I clench my fists to hold myself back from smacking him in the face since his words are like a slap in mine. “You have some nerve.”

It’d make for some bad headlines if a doctor slapped a patient’s father. There’s no apology on his face when he holds up his hands. “Just saying it how I see it.” “Then allow me to say it how I see it.” I thrust my finger toward the door. “You have a sick son in there, and it’s my job to treat him. Don’t like it? I don’t give a shit.” I shove past him, stalk out of the room, and don’t check to see if he’s following me.

“Everything okay?” Lauren asks, her eyes glancing over my shoulder, and I realize Cohen is behind me, still keeping his distance.

“Peachy,” I chirp before approaching the bed and smiling down at the boy. “What’s your name, honey?”

“Noah,” he croaks. Even though I was sure it was him, my head spins at his confirmation. I tenderly squeeze his arm, and my tone turns cheerful. “Hi, Noah. I’m Dr. Gentry. Can I ask some questions about how you’re feeling?”

He nods. Cohen stalks to the other side of the bed, his eyes on me, and Lauren migrates to the corner, her nosy ass interested in this shitshow.

“He has a fever,” Cohen tells me, his tone softer. “For how long?” He scratches his scruffy cheek. “Over twenty-four hours.” “Appetite?” He shakes his head. “Not even sugar. I can hardly get him to drink, and he has no energy, which is very rare for him.”

“Cough?” “Yes.” His jerk attitude settles while we turn our attention to Noah. I ask question after question as I take his temperature and go through all the motions.

“Symptoms tell me it’s the flu,” I say, removing my gloves and tossing them into the trash. “We’ll do a test, and I also want to run some blood work to make sure we’re not missing anything.”

Cohen nods. “Thank you.” I smile at Noah. “We’ll get you back to feeling good in no time.” I give Lauren, who’s gathering supplies for the test, a head nod and leave the room.

I‘ll definitely be pairing wine with those Thin Mints tonight. Lauren comes scurrying into the doctors’ lounge ten minutes later. “Whoa, what was that about? Dude was super nice to me but acted as if you’d pissed in his Cheerios.”

Here goes.

A chill sweeps up my neck. “That’s my sister’s ex … and her son … the ones she left.” “Oh, Jerry Springer.”

THE RIVAL ROOMIES
By Piper Rayne
Release Date: May 12

I’ve loved him from afar.

Though most times he’s only a foot away.

I’m smart enough to know he’ll never be anyone’s forever.

He checks all the bad boy boxes. Tattoos. Check. Motorcycle. Check. Chip on his shoulder. Check check.

If he wasn’t my neighbor and friend I may have thrown myself at him. Okay, yeah. I wouldn’t. Because guys like Dylan don’t want a woman who writes kid’s math textbooks under him in bed. Instead, I pathetically savor morsels of moments where I have his sole attention.

That was until his archenemy moved in with me. Now suddenly, Dylan’s moving in too and warning off the first guy in a long time who’s showing me interest. Could he finally see me as more than a friend, or am I just a prize to win and show off to his enemy?

Rian is a math book writer and basically the “square” of her group of friends. She bakes, is sweet and wouldn’t hurt a fly. She also has a major crush on her good friend and now roommate Dylan. Dylan is a tattooed alpha that has his own shop and has recently moved in with Rian. There is another roommate Jax…and that’s part of the reason Dylan moved in with Rian. Jax is from Dylan’s past and that plays a big part of this story. Dylan knows Rian has feelings for him and it’s mutual. They are both hiding feelings until it’s too much and the fallout is cute to watch.

This is your standard friend to lovers romance except they live together. I wanted to love this book but for some reason I never got to love status. I was in “like” with it instead. Which isn’t a bad thing, I just never felt a romantic connection between Rian and Dylan but more of friendship. I like the previous books in this series and will read new ones but I wish I had felt more with this story. I’m sure some people will love it.

BLOWBACK
Book Two  

This was supposed to be simple. Vengeance was mine. But I should know by now that nothing in life is easy.

My endgame has changed all because I met someone who wishes I was dead. Yet her hatred is the only thing saving her from The Big Bad. My lies protect her, so the harder she hates, the safer she is.

The thing about love and hate—it skates a very thin line. I need to stay away. It’s better for everyone if I do. But fighting this is like fighting nature.

Our paths crossed for a reason, and my Tiger isn’t fooled. Once the smoke clears, she will see every player, including me. I don’t deserve a second chance. But I want one…because I want her. The question is, what happens when the truth is finally revealed?

With the end in sight, I can promise you there will be nothing but violence and mayhem.

Oh yes, blood will be shed.

“Every story has a hero. And it has a villain. But in this story – you got both, wrapped in one.”

Holy whiplash! There were so many crazy and intense twists and turns in this book, I could barely contain myself. What a perfectly epic conclusion to a fantastic duet. Blowback picks up right were we were left with that jaw dropping cliffhanger at the end of Bullseye. Bull is still hell bent on seeking revenge against the men that killed his brother and took his freedom. If his crazy fucked up plan works more blood will be shed and his enemies will pay. But at what cost?

“My shackles were invisible, and I never believed in fairytales. I still don’t.”

This book is mass chaos and carnage right from the get go. It’s dark and dirty and heartbreakingly beautiful. As Bull’s need for vengeance goes deeper into the depths of his tortured soul so many more players enter the game. Meanwhile he’s made a deal with the devil…well, one of the devils because believe me there’s an influx in this duet. Part of that deal is he has to stay away from the one person besides his brother who has ever meant anything to him. But Bull isn’t the kind of man who follows other people’s rules, he’s the kind that breaks them.

“Deeper and deeper, I’m falling down the rabbit hole, but it seems fitting – because we’re all mad here.”

Tiger and Bull basically have a shit show coming their way and so many obstacles trying to tear them apart when they both so obviously want to be together. Bull may think his soul is too dark and that he is unworthy of being loved, but Tiger takes this tortured man and shows him what love is and that he is deserving. Amiss all the blood, death and mayhem it really was a beautiful love story for these two. I loved Tiger in the first book and even more in this one. She was fierce and a force to be reckoned with when a monster tries to take those she loves the most. Bull is dark and intense and oh so beautiful. There are also some amazing secondary characters that I loved in this second book and some scary ass depraved ones too. I am so glad Monica James wrapped this story up the way she did. I adored Bull and Tiger. This duet consumed me and I loved every minute of it.

“I will always favor the shadows. I was hardwired that way. But the light doesn’t scare me anymore.”
