Mirror, mirror … who’s the fairest of them all?

I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn’t grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all ‘mean girls.’

And those mean girls were right – it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world – and I knew the answer would never be me.

The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests.

The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward.

Well, that’s definitely not Willow Tate.

No. That will never be me.

Because I’m completely imperfect.

And … I hate myself.

I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

  
Excerpt

“Are you nervous right now?”

I nod.

“Tell me why.” His demand, steady and calm, gives me the courage I need to tell him. To open a vein and bleed my insecurities.

“I’m not perfect,” I whisper.

“And neither am I, Willow. I don’t want perfect. What so many see as perfect, to me, is fake. Perfect isn’t achievable naturally. No one, and I mean no one, is perfect.”

I’m shaking my head before he’s even done speaking, but one long finger comes up and presses against my lips before I can speak.

“No, let me finish. There isn’t beauty in perfection. It’s as fake as the image the word projects. Beauty is found in imperfection, Willow, because to admit you’re not perfect means you’re admitting you’re not whole and absolute. When I think of myself, I see someone willing to admit he’s as far from complete as it gets because, in order to get to that perfection, I need to find the other part of me who will make my life better. To take all the faults I have and fill them, and only then will I be there. You see, the way I see it, the only way to become perfect is to find that perfectly imperfect person who brings it out of you.”

When he stops, I swear I might have stopped breathing. How am I supposed to respond to that?

“Do you trust me?” he asks, his voice strong and sure.

“Yes, Kane. Nerves or not, I do.”

“Then let me show you what I see when I look at you.”

He brings his hands up, framing my face once again in a way I’m quickly becoming addicted to the feeling of. His warm eyes implore, begging me without words to let him continue. I do not intend to stop him, regardless of the butterflies currently taking over my system. I’m all in.

  
About the Author:

  

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00037]

 

SYNOPSIS:

She’s the girl who got away, but now she’s back…

Four years was all it took.

I told myself I didn’t need friends. I didn’t need family. I sure as fuck didn’t need him.

And you know what?

I was right.

He had been inside of me, coursing through my veins.

So I cut and bled Dash Chambers until I was free.

But the day I returned to Six Forks and was thrown at his feet, I realized I would never forget how it felt to have every inch of him inside me.

…and he’s waiting.

Angel thought if she ran far enough, she’d be free.

What’s mine will always be mine.

This time I do things my way.

 

Topless passionate heterosexual young couple

 

 

EXCERPT:

REGRET WAS SOMETHING I had become accustomed. Ever since I ran, I’ve lived with it every day. And now it seemed at every turn, I was adding to my list of things to regret. I saw the accusation, the anger, the distrust…

I’d made the wrong decision and paid the consequences by further damaging my friendship with Lake.

I excused myself to the bathroom when I couldn’t fake it with my head held high anymore. I splashed water on my face and pretended I wasn’t crying. I told myself I wouldn’t be a bad person and that from now on, I would only make good decisions, but I knew when I reentered reality, none of it would hold any weight.

A knock on the door jolted me out my self-loathing. I became as stiff as a board and held my breath as if the person on the other side could actually hear.

“Willow?” The feminine sound of Lake’s voice calling my name made me grip the counter. “I know you’re in there.” The doorknob turned as she knocked again.

With a deep breath and then another, I unlocked and snatched open the door. “Yes?”

“What was that down there?”

“I don’t follow,” I answered slowly.

She pushed into the bathroom and closed the door shut. “Who are you?” The pain was etched all over voice. “The Willow I know would never have kept such a dangerous secret like that and put lives in jeopardy.”

“The Willow you knew isn’t standing here. You took what was left of her when you walked away for him.”

“If you think it hurt watching me move to another school, then be thankful you never had to feel what it was like to find one day that your best friend was gone without a trace. I fucking mourned you, Willow. I didn’t leave because I preferred him. I left because I needed him. I love him, Willow.”

“And I needed you.” The volume of my voice increased with the overwhelming emotions raging inside. “He’s abused you since we were kids. You’re such a fucking masochist.”

“I’m not living in the past like you. I forgave him for me.”

“Have you? Why? Has he even apologized or did he just make you a bunch of promises that sounded good?”

“You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“I know what he did to you.”

“No one knows better than me.” Her tone took on a harder edge, and I could tell the pain was still there despite all their happily ever after bullshit.

“And what about what he did to me?”

“What Keiran did was despicable, but he didn’t make you fuck Dash and he didn’t make you fall in love. You did it because you wanted to and because your heart craved Dash. The start may have been false, but the journey was real.”

I searched for a spot on the wall and fixated on it. I couldn’t stand to look in Lake’s unusual eyes and not give in.

“This great love you speak of tormented you for ten years and did unthinkable things to you for entertainment. In every war, there are casualties and people get hurt. I was one of them. It was one thing to fall in love, but it was unbearable to watch you ride off into the sunset with him. You never even thought to help me learn how to heal as I did for you. Did you forget? I dried every one of your tears and shared your pain so you could find the strength to face the next day only to be knocked down again. And now you’re actually trying to convince me that it was love? Well, I found and lost my only chance at love because of him. I won’t forgive him. Not even for me. The pain serves me much better. It reminds me I’m alive, and it’s love that destroys you.”

Lake watched me with sad eyes and then shook her head, defeated. She turned to grasp the door handle to leave but turned back at the last minute. “You didn’t lose him,” she shot back forcefully. “You let him go.”

Review of Breaking Love

5*****

B.B Reid’s fourth installment in the Broken Love series is mind blowing.  B.B finally puts to rest the one questions that been on everyone’s mind, Where’s Willow?

Breaking Love beings where Fear Us left us, on the edge our seats trying to puzzle together where Willow could have gone. On the day of Sheldon and Keenan’s wedding Willow shows up in a very unusual way, leaving the gang to question where she’s been and why no one has heard from her. Dash wants answers and he will do everything in his power to get them.  Breaking Love has been the book I have been most eagerly awaiting for this year and B.B. Reid did not disappoint. Breaking Love is full of twist and turns and plenty of suspense and danger but most of all its hot and steamy, this book (and this series) is a must read for everyone!  Love this series and recommend it to all!

“Yeah, I guess I’ll…” She took a step back, a deep blush growing on her face.

Say something!

“I—” He cleared his throat. He was going to take a risk and pray it didn’t destroy their friendship. He couldn’t lose that, it was the only piece of her he could claim. But the chance at more than friendship? He’d risk it every time. “I’m glad you aren’t interested in Micah. He’s a great guy it’s just that he’s not…” He paused and rubbed the back of his neck.

“He’s not?” Mary paused and turned toward him, her eyes glowing with an emotion he didn’t dare evaluate.

“He’s not… me,” he finished, sealing his fate.

Mary’s eyes widened.

His heart stopped.

Then she smiled.

His heart made up for lost time and pounded forcefully, almost painfully.

Could it be?

Dare he imagine?

“You’re right,” Mary murmured, glancing down to her dress and smoothing it before meeting his gaze once more. “He’s not you.”

“Mary,” Joseph whispered, speaking her name with the reverence she deserved. She smiled gently. Unable to resist the invitation her smile presented, he took a few steps toward her. Reaching out, he slowly grasped her hand, the sensation at once intensely powerful and utterly comforting. Slowly, he allowed himself the pleasure of tracing her fingers before lacing them through his. His heart beat wildly with the awareness that he was touching her, his sweet Mary.

Deeply, he gazed into her eyes, filling himself on the acceptance, on the hope in her expression. As she raised her dainty hand, he closed his eyes. When she placed it on the side of his face, her warmth seeped into his soul, breathing life into him.

Her loving fingers gently caressed his cheek, and he memorized the sensation, committing it to the forefront of his memory. Opening his eyes, he learned by heart the soft curve of her cheeks, the perfect bow of her lips, the dark lashes framing her expressive eyes. Swallowing, he leaned forward and rested his forehead against hers.

She sighed.

Then she began to giggle.

He leaned back, furrowing his brow. “What exactly do you think is funny about this? I’ll have you know I’ve lived in terror for the past three and a half years.” He reached out and tugged lightly on the dark strand of hair that had escaped her braid.

“You? You have lived in fear? What do you think I have endured? After all, you’re older. You could have married long ago!” She leaned back and shoved his arm in a teasing manner.

Flirting?

Heaven above, Mary was flirting with him.

He could die a happy man.

“I think…” He chuckled, reaching out and grasping her hand, tugging her in closer. “That it’s safe to say we’ve both been tortured enough.”

“Agreed. However…” She tilted her head slightly, a grin breaking through her expression. “What do you plan to do about it? Hmm?” She tapped his nose slightly.

More than anything, Joseph wanted to lean in and taste the sweetness of her lips, but he couldn’t.

He had one chance to have her; he’d not ruin it by moving too quick, by letting his desire overrule his honor.

Mary deserved more.

  
  
Kristin’s inspiration for the romance she writes comes from her tall, dark and handsome husband with killer blue eyes. With five children to chase, she is never at a loss for someone to kiss, something to cook or some mess to clean but she loves every moment of it!

Review of The Lessons by Elizabeth Brown

Things weren’t exactly going according to my Plan, so I did what most Americans do when confronted with a problem : I hired someone else to fix it. 

Except ‘it’ was my virginity. 

And that ‘someone else’ was a sex surrogate. 

I should have known the answer wouldn’t be that simple.

5** *** Review

The Lessons was a fun, romantic read and I couldn’t put it down. The Lessons introduces us to Natalie a thirty year old woman who has had a rough go of life, first with her gay ex boyfriend then her sick and dying mother. Natalie at the age of thirty has yet to lose her V card. She decided that she needs a change and hires a sexual surrogate to take car of the situation., only one down fall she didn’t intend to fall for Ryan her surrogate.The chemistry between Natalie and Ryan is hot and steamy and off the charts. Ryan knows it’s forbidden and it could cost him his future. Throw in a meddling therapist, some crazy co workers and a best friend who happens to be your gay ex and you have an enjoyable fun read. I have recommended this book to everyone and look forward to reading more from Elizabeth Brown.

Synopsis

Erika

I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.

His name is Michael Crist.

My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.

But I noticed him.

I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.

Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.

Because he’s finally noticed me.

Michael

Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.

My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.

Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.

In my city.

Unprotected.

The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.

We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

I turned and stalked off, taking a left down the hallway toward the elevator. The doors opened as soon as I pushed the button, and I stepped inside, trying to calm my racing heart.

They still intimidated me.

And excited me. And challenged me. And knotted me up.

I’d kind of wanted to go to a party but not with them.

The doors started closing, but just then a hand shot into the elevator, and I jumped, seeing the doors re-open. I sucked in a breath, staring wide-eyed as Michael reached in, grabbed my shirt by the collar with one hand, and pulled me out.

“Michael!” I shouted.

I stumbled into him, and before I knew what was happening, he grabbed my wrists and locked them behind my back, walking into me and forcing me backward, back down the hall toward the kitchen.

“Let me go!” I demanded, my lips brushing the tip of his chin.

“I don’t know, guys,” he teased over my head, “she still seems pretty fucking easy to push around. What do you think?”

Laughter greeted me as he forced me back into the living area.

Every muscle in my body was on fire, and the tips of my toes kept getting caught under his sneakers.

I twisted my body, trying to break his hold. “What the hell are you doing?”

I pushed against his chest and jerked my body to the left, tearing out of his hold with every muscle I could muster.

I stumbled, losing my balance, and fell backward, crashing to the floor. Pain shot through my ass, running down my legs as the fall knocked the wind out me.

Shit!

Shooting my hands behind me, I pushed myself up and bent my knees, looking up at him as he advanced.

He stalked over and then stopped, towering over me. I immediately moved my hands and feet, crawling backward, away from him.

But then I felt something at my back, and I halted. I twisted my head, seeing a dark pant leg, and I didn’t know if it was Damon, Will, or Kai, but it didn’t matter. I was closed in.

Oh, no. I slowly raised my eyes, seeing Michael’s lips tilt in a devious smile. I stopped breathing, seeing him lower his body to the floor, planting his knees between my bent legs, and his hands at my sides.

My neck arched back as his face hovered over mine, but I tried to keep myself up as much as possible, no matter how close his body got.

“I thought you were one of us,” his whispered, his breath caressing my lips. “I thought you could play.”

I stilled, staring into his eyes.

You’re one of us now. Will had said that to me on that night so long ago.

Michael’s amber eyes searched mine and then dropped to my mouth, his breathing growing heavy as he stared at me like he was about to take a bite.

I wanted to cry. What the hell was going on?

Three years ago was nearly the happiest night of my life, and it quickly became the worst. And ever since then, Michael not only acted as if I didn’t exist, but also, at times, as if he wished I didn’t.

Now the guys were free, and they were all back together again. What did I have to do with any of this? What did he want with me?

“I don’t know this game,” I told him, barely audible.

He stared into my eyes, thinning his own as if studying me. “All you need to know,” he finally answered, “is that you can’t tap out.”

HOOKED BY LOVE

By Toni Aleo

COMING 12.28.2015

Things are out of control for the Sinclair boys! With two already in the NHL, Jace Sinclair is ready to follow in his brothers’ HUGE skates in the last Bellevue Bullies novel…

Jace Sinclair here, and I’m amazing. There is no other way to describe me. I am the leading scorer for the Bellevue Bullies, I’m the captain, and people love me: my family, my teammates, my coach, and the NHL. I already have one foot in the draft and I’m ready. This is my last year in college–it’s basically a conditioning year to get me ready for the NHL, to further my game, and I have to be focused. But then, it’s also my last year to have fun and not give a damn before my life really starts. Which means I’m gonna run through every girl I meet. That’s my plan. Because my one and only love is hockey. It keeps me warm even when it’s freezing. It’s always there when nothing else is. And it pushes me to be the best I can be. It’s my love.

That is, until I see her against a tree with a guitar.

Avery.

The last thing I wanted was to meet anyone. My heart is on the bench because I’ve watched my mom get broken by the person I call my father, and I don’t want that for myself. I don’t want to be hurt by anyone. I can’t give them that power.

But my heart is begging for ice time, and I can’t control it around her.

* * *

I’ve always been in the background. No one has ever had time for me and that’s fine; I’ve learned to cope. Coming from a family where hockey is life, the last thing I want is some big, burly hockey player charging at me. I don’t have time for it, but Jace Sinclair isn’t one to be deked around. The thing is, I came to the University of Bellevue for one reason and one reason only. To make my dreams of being a singer/songwriter come true. To work in the industry and pay my dues. Become who I really want to be.

I didn’t want to meet anyone. I didn’t want to end up freezing the puck with him. It’s not what I want.

I have demons.

I have issues.

Living in the shadows, no one even knew until it was too late. But Jace wants to know.

He wants me.

And that scares me the living hell out of me.

We were so worried about what would happen if we fell, but we never thought what could happen in the process of falling. We never saw it coming. But it’s here, and the repercussions are not pretty. We should have known that there is no way out of the zone when you are being Hooked by Love.
