Never Let You Go: A Modern Fairy tale (A MODERN FAIRY TALE)

By: Katy Regnery

LINKS: AMAZON | GOODREADS

 

SYNOPSIS:

In this modern retelling of “Hansel and Gretel,” 13-year-old foster children, Holden and Griselda, escape from their abductor after three years of brutal captivity and try to cross the Shenandoah River on foot. Tragically, one of them makes it to safety but the other is left behind.

Ten years later, Griselda’s boyfriend drags her to a fight club grudge match where her world is turned upside down when she watches Holden step into the ring.

Though the connection between them is fierce, bitter regret, simmering rage and a cache of physical and emotional scars lie between them, just as dangerous as the whitewater of the Shenandoah.

Never Let You Go is a story of fear and hope, defeat and survival, and two people – once profoundly broken – who discover that love is the only thing that can make them whole again.

This is a standalone novel inspired by Hansel & Gretel. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to profanity, scenes of physical abuse and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. (Note: children are not sexually abused in this book.)

WHAT DID I THINK: 3 out of 5 Stars

I am not a fan of flashbacks when they are written into every chapter.  Just when I thought we were past the flashbacks, one would reappear. I got what happened to Griselda and Holden.  I understood the pain and what they had to endure while they were being held prisoner. I did not need another seven flashbacks.

Holden and Griselda are foster kids who were kidnapped by a man and held captive for three years.  They were physically and mentally abused. One of them escaped while the other was caught.  The story fast forwards 10 years.  Holden has a girlfriend and Griselda is living with an abusive boyfriend.  By chance they run into each other.

I love stories about foster kids who later reconnect in life and who truly had strong feeling for each other.  There is no doubt that Griselda and Holden love each other and they have to get through many obstacles to have their love.  Holden’s girlfriend springs something on him which changes the course for Gris and Holden to be together.

I saw the love these two characters had for each other, but I was just not as connected as I hoped I would be.  All the drama and obstacles were too predictable for me as well their solutions.

“LEARNING TO FALL” by Jillian Eaton

LEARNING TO FALL

BY: Jillian Eaton

LINKS: AMAZON |GOODREADS

Note: Date of post, LEARNING TO FALL is on KINDLE UNLIMITED!

SYNOPSIS:

There are some lines that should never be crossed…

…and some desires that cannot be ignored.

Driven, meticulous, and a bit of a control freak, Imogen Finley is elated when her hard work and dedication culminates in a teaching position at Stonewall, a prestigious liberal arts college on the coast of Maine. Everything in her life is going exactly as she planned it… until she meets Daniel Logan.

Charming, mysterious, and wickedly handsome, Daniel is not the kind of man Imogen ever planned on falling for, but after a chance meeting at a bar that’s exactly what she finds herself doing and he quickly becomes the one thing in her life she can’t control. The one thing in her life she doesn’t want to control.

But as their passion escalates, so does the dangerous situation they find themselves in. Because Daniel isn’t just the man Imogen’s falling in love with… he’s also her student.

 

WHAT DID I THINK: 3 out of 5 Stars

The beginning of the book was a lot of Imogen’s background.  There was a lot of inner dialogue and a lot of detail about everything which at times made me lose interest.

I love quirky heroines.  They are some of my favorite, but what started with me thinking that Imogen was quirky and cute quickly turned that she was just annoying.  At first,  I thought the relationship with Daniel had potential, but their relationship became awkward. I wondered why Daniel wanted to be with her. I do not think I could be friends with Imogen.  This is a teacher/student romance, but I felt by the time we got to that part, I already disconnected from the characters.

Ride Steady (Chaos #3)

By: Kristen Ashley

LINKS TO BUY: AMAZON

 

AAGoodreads2

 

SYNOPSIS:

The ride of her life . . .

Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy—until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa’s pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.

Climb on and hold tight . . .

In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he’s the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa’s acting, it’s clear she’s falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker’s secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa—or ride away forever . . .

WHAT DID I THINK: 4 out of 5 Stars

Carissa Teodoro has had a crush on Carson Steele (like every other girl) since high school. Carson has always been known as a loner, but that is only because he kept to himself.  He had enough to deal with at home with his father’s constant mental and physical abuse.  One day Carissa gets enough nerve to ask Carson on a date…this happens to be the day that Carson decides to leave town and never come back.  He tells her no and this changes the course of their lives.  Carissa marries man who constantly cheats on her and Carson goes on to life a where he changes his name.  8 years later, Carissa is divorced with a baby and Carson has joined the Chaos.  One day, Carissa is stuck on the side of the rode with a flat tire.  A biker pulls up to help her.  Even though she does not fully recognize him, he appears familiar.  To show her gratitude the next day, Carissa goes to The Ride where Joker works with a pie.  Joker acts like he does not know her…only he knows all too well she was the girl that he left behind in high school thinking that she deserved a better life than what he was able to give her.  If he only knew that the decision he made all those years ago was not the best decision for her and from there the story begins.

I liked this book and it felt like the old KA which I adore.  It was nice to see some of the old characters that I have loved in the past make an appearance.  I usually loathe books that have the best friends that are always around, but not in KA books.  I think every woman needs friends like Tabby, Tyra, Gwen, and most definitely Elvira.

I usually hate baby mama books, but there is only one author (the amazing KA) who can write a book about a single, divorced mom without making her pine for her ex or have hatred towards the world. Kristen Ashley knows how to make you immediately feel connected to the characters.

Outside from the first couple of pages, there was very little angst.  Once the couple got together…they were together. It was not insta-love even though you knew what this couple felt for each other in high school.  I just wanted a little more.  Everything kind of went too smoothly.  I appreciated that nothing dragged and everything was out in the open, but I was hoping for some drama or “something” towards the end. For a book that was over 600 pages, I was expecting and wanting more.  It wasn’t a bad read; it was just a nice read.

“THE CHILDREN OF DARKNESS” by David Litwack #giveaway @davidlitwack

 

Children of Darkness

The Children of Darkness, book one of the dystopian trilogy, The Seekers by David Litwack

“But what are we without dreams?”

A thousand years ago the Darkness came–a time of violence and social collapse when technology ran rampant. But the vicars of the Temple of Light brought peace, ushering in an era of blessed simplicity. For ten centuries they have kept the madness at bay with “temple magic,” eliminating forever the rush of progress that nearly caused the destruction of everything.

Childhood friends, Orah and Nathaniel, have always lived in the tiny village of Little Pond, longing for more from life but unwilling to challenge the rigid status quo. When their friend Thomas returns from the Temple after his “teaching”—the secret coming-of-age ritual that binds the young to the Light—they barely recognize the broken and brooding man the boy has become. Then when Orah is summoned as well, Nathaniel follows in a foolhardy attempt to save her.

In the prisons of Temple City, they discover a terrible secret that launches the three on a journey to find the forbidden keep, placing their lives in jeopardy. For hidden in the keep awaits a truth from the past that threatens the foundation of the Temple. If they reveal that truth, they might release the long-suppressed potential of their people, but they would also incur the Temple’s wrath as it is written:

“If there comes among you a dreamer of dreams saying ‘Let us return to the darkness,’ you shall stone him, because he has sought to thrust you away from the light.”

Praise for The Children of Darkness

“A must-read page turner.” Kirkus Review

“Litwack’s storytelling painted a world of both light and darkness–and the truth that would mix the two.” Fiction Fervor

“A fresh perspective on our own society…[an] enjoyable read that will make you wonder just how society will judge us in the future.” Lexie

 

 

David LitwackAuthor David Litwack
The urge to write first struck when working on a newsletter at a youth encampment in the woods of northern Maine. It may have been the night when lightning flashed at sunset followed by northern lights rippling after dark. Or maybe it was the newsletter’s editor, a girl with eyes the color of the ocean. But he was inspired to write about the blurry line between reality and the fantastic.

Using two fingers and lots of white-out, he religiously typed five pages a day throughout college and well into his twenties. Then life intervened. He paused to raise two sons and pursue a career, in the process becoming a well-known entrepreneur in the software industry, founding several successful companies. When he found time again to daydream, the urge to write returned.
After publishing two award winning novels, Along the Watchtower and The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky, he’s hard at work on the dystopian trilogy, The Seekers.
David and his wife split their time between Cape Cod, Florida and anywhere else that catches their fancy. He no longer limits himself to five pages a day and is thankful every keystroke for the invention of the word processor.

“ACROSS THE DISTANCE” by Marie Meyer

Distdownload

Across the Distance

By: Marie Meyer

Links: Amazon | Goodreads

 

SYNOPSIS: There’s a drawer I never open. It holds a picture I never look at. It reminds me of a day I hate to remember, but I’ll never forget.

 

I’d give anything to be like the other girls on campus. Going to parties, flirting with boys, planning for a future. But that’s not me. And hasn’t been since the day my parents died. The only thing that got me through was Griffin. Even though I didn’t have my family, I always had him. Only, now I’m not so sure I do.

It’s not just the eleven hundred miles separating us now that I’m at college. And it’s more than his band finally taking off, and all the gigs and girls suddenly demanding his time. It’s like everything is different—the way we talk, the way we text . . . the way he looks at me and the way his looks make me feel.

Griffin has been the only good thing in my life since that horrific day. I can feel our friendship slipping away—and I’m terrified of what will be left in its place…

 

WHAT DID I THINK: 3 out of 5 Stars

Jillian parents died when she was 6. Jillian and her sister had to move in with her grandparents.  Next door lived Griffin who immediately became her protector. As years go by, they become better friends.  Before Jillian goes away to college and Griffin leaves to pursue a career in a band, Jillian takes a chance and kisses him only to have him push her away. Jillian knows that there will be nothing between them, but they still continue to be somewhat of friends through Facetime and texting.   Jillian has a hard time in college while Griffin is busy trying to get his career off by meeting with producers, etc. They lives become somewhat separate even though they try to continue a friendship and see if it could be more.

I have to be honest and say that this book was just frustrating for me.  Griffin would say he was thinking about Jillian but I never felt he cared.  There were so many times he left her hanging, plus there was his girlfriend.   That whole relationship Griffin had with his girlfriend, I felt was to cause tension for the reader.  However, it only made me not like Griffin and I started to disconnect.  I did not like the way Griffin made Jillian feel.  The way the relationship developed did not work for me.  The heroine in this story, I felt, was the only one hurting and hoping.  I wanted Jillian to have more and better. I love stories with angst.  I love when the author tortures me but I have to first feel a true connection between the characters.  I have to feel the love.  I did not feel any love or deep connection outside of friendship and I am not even sure I felt friendship that from Griffin as they got older.  In the end, I was disappointed with the story.

“THE DEFINITION OF ICING” by Aven Ellis

Icingdownload (1)

The Definition of Icing

By: Aven Ellis

LINKS: AMAZON |GOODREADS

Side note: As of the date of this post…THE DEFINITION OF ICING is on AMAZON UNLIMITED!

SYNOPSIS: Kenley Hunter finally has everything sorted out. Fresh from studying chocolate making in Europe, she’s gambling everything on her new business, Confection Consultations.

 

All Kenley wants in life is people to take her seriously, to see the person on the inside rather than the

blonde beauty on the outside. While pursuing her passion of chocolate, Kenley discovered people seek her knowledge. They see past the exterior and fall for the chocolate delights in front of them.

So with work as her focus, Kenley is ready to start her career in Dallas. Men are out of her recipe, because she fears that once they get past her looks, they’ll be disappointed in what they find. Kenley decides she’s all about the chocolate now.

Or is she?

Because a chance meeting with new Dallas Demon hockey star Nate Johansson might change everything.

Sent to Dallas in a blockbuster trade, Nate is somewhere he doesn’t want to be, for reasons that have

caused him heartbreak on multiple levels. Nate knows he will never trust a woman again after what

happened to him in Minnesota.

But when he meets a woman with an intriguing name and a passion for chocolate, Nate isn’t so sure about

his theory. And he might just learn a definition of icing other than the one used in hockey with Kenley as his guide.

 

WHAT DID I THINK: 3.5 out of 5 Stars

This was a very nice and sweet romance.  It was cute and contemporary.

I loved the beginning and how Kenley and Nate meet at a photo shoot.   The photographer wants to use Kenley’s looks and sex her up and Kenley does not want any part of that and speaks her mind.  Nate takes notice and is impressed.  They start talking and Kenley asks Nate out.  Nate shoots her down because he is not ready to date after something that happened to him back in Minnesota. The woman he loved cheated on him and it seems to linger in the back of his mind.

Kenley and Nate have another chance meeting and at this point Nate takes Kenley out on a date.  Nate opens up how he is not ready to really get involved with someone so Kenley never pushes which leaves her second guessing their romance.

It was not a bad read.  The book has its moments and then it felt like it was just going through the motions.  I loved CONNECTIVITY (I am going to reread this little gem right now) and WAITING FOR PRINCE HARRY by Aven Ellis.  They seemed to have that punch that made me feel happy, but at the same time the tension. I want to be teased and as well as tortured.  Nate did not want to appear like he was pining, but his feelings obviously went deep for this other woman that cheated on him.    The tension was supposed to be whether Nate would be able to move to a place where he could have a full and meaningful relationship with Henley and move past the woman who lied to him, but I did not want my hero to linger on how another woman cheated on him and how he has hold off on a great relationship.  Don’t get me wrong…Nate was sweet, but I got frustrated with his trust issues.

Blog Tour “TRUSTING LIAM” by Molly McAdams #giveaway #takingchances

TrustingLiam
trustingliam
Synopsis:
From the New York Times bestselling author of Taking Chances, From Ashes, and Stealing Harper, comes the new unforgettable adult romance Molly McAdams’ fans have been waiting for—the sizzling story of a young woman who must place her trust in the one man who can break through her defenses.

A night they will always remember…a connection neither can deny…a secret that could destroy it all…

When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor—the intriguing man who has haunted her thoughts for a year. A man who led her to breaking every one of her rules for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.

Liam Taylor has been asked to help socialize his boss’s nieces. But what he thinks sounds more like a babysitting job ends up leading him to the only girl who ever slipped away before morning—a girl he thought he’d never find again. And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.

But when a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?

Excerpt:
“Trying not to wake him, I slowly slid out from under his arm and off the bed to search for my clothes. Once I was dressed, I told myself to just leave, but I couldn’t help it—I turned to look at him in the light. I needed to be sure I hadn’t made him up.

The images from last night tore through my mind again when I saw the large, tattooed arm resting where my body had just been. The muscles were well defined even relaxed, and the face had a boyish charm now that he was asleep. Such a difference from the predatory stare and knowing smirk I kept seeing in my mind. Before I could stop myself, I gently ran my fingers through his dirty-blond hair that, now in the sunlight, I could see had a red tint to it. And I knew if he opened them, those arctic blue eyes would once again captivate me.

But I couldn’t risk that.

I’d already stayed too long; I’d already made a mistake with him. Drunken one-night stands weren’t my thing. Drunken one-night stands with strangers in Vegas were even worse.

Straightening, I turned and walked quietly from the room.”– Molly McAdams, Trusting Liam

WHAT DID I THINK: 3 out of 5 Stars

This can be read as a standalone, but some of it will better relate if you to read Taking Chances before you read this book.

This may have some spoilers if you have not read Taking Chances.

Taking Chances was one very interesting book/read for me.  On one hand I loved it since it completely shocked me.  I read it the first week it came out so I did not see one review.  I avoided GR like a plague that week.  I also “hated” TAKING CHANCES since it took away my favorite character.

My rating really has to do with the fact that I just did not like the heroine, Kennedy or “Moon” at all.  She was just … there.  I was disappointed.   I wanted the best for Liam and to me (and this is my opinion) Kennedy was not the best.

I was also disappointed in the development of the characters. I just needed a little more. The story was not engaging. It felt like a repeat of many other romances I have read over and over involving one night stands.  Same story, just different names. The same games were played with the same feelings retold. It was nothing new.

Kennedy and her twin, Kira, are moved to California after there has been a threat to their family.  I did not care for Kennedy, but Kira was worse.  A spoiled brat does not even describe that girl’s behavior.  The behaviors of both of these characters were exhausting at times.  I don’t even know why Liam wanted the heroine.  I wish it was spelled out in the beginning because I did not see it or feel it.   He had  one night with her a year ago in Vegas.  What was so amazing about her???  I did not get it. There was nothing unique about the story and the characters.

Trouble in Loveland by Jennifer Peel

What teenage girl hasn’t gone to great lengths to get noticed by her crush?

Charlee Jensen is no exception. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately in the end, Ryan her much older neighbor and unrequited love has no idea she exists during her teenage years, at least not the way she wants him to.

That all changes, though, when Charlee returns home, after eight years, to work for her estranged father and Ryan … her teen crush. This time, Ryan has no problem noticing her. His only problem is that he isn’t quite sure what to do with this woman who is suddenly all grown up, beautiful and annoyingly charming.

Throw in a cute three year old, and an ex-wife that’s not quite ready to let go, and you have a whole lot of trouble in Loveland.

Trouble in Loveland is a clean, heartfelt romance filled with humor and tenderness.

Praise for the Book

“Jennifer Peel’s writing captures you from the start and pulls you in. Trouble in Loveland is a fantastic book and was the perfect escape that I look for when I read. It has it all! Drama, humor, and romance. Highly recommend!”

“I have a new favorite author! I am so glad that Jennifer Peel started writing because she writes exactly the kinds of books that I love and Trouble in Loveland is no exception–it’s good, clean, romantic fun!”

“Funny and heartfelt! Jennifer Peel creates characters that are so relatable! This story made me both laugh and cry. A must read!”

 

Excerpt

Ryan’s eyes seared into mine. “I was hoping I would get to dance with you tonight.”
“You were?”
“Yes, but you’ve been quite popular.” He pulled back a tad and looked down at my dress. “You look very …”
“Please don’t say grown up.”
He smiled and shook his head. “I wasn’t going to say that, I was going to say …” he tried to think of something.
“You were going to say it, weren’t you?”
He sighed. “Charlee, you really know how to make a guy feel inadequate don’t you.”
“I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be. I find I like it.”
“You do?”
He nodded his head. “I also find you to be very …” he hesitated.
“Very what?”
“Beautiful and annoyingly charming.”
“How can somebody be annoying and charming at the same time?”
“See what I mean?” He winked.
In my heels, we were practically eye level, and our faces were mere inches apart. I could smell the sweet smell of honey on his breath; I wanted more than anything to taste it, and the way he was looking at me at that moment, I thought maybe he felt the same way. His eyes quickly turned to confusion though before he pulled me a little closer. I rested my head against his and swayed against him. It was even better than I imagined. I wanted the dance to last forever.
“By the way,” I whispered in his ear. “I find you very beautiful too.”

“GIRL OF MINE” by Taylor Dean #giveaway @taylordeanbooks

Taylor Dean’s newest book is now available!

GIRLOFMINE


 

The book trailer:

 

The song that inspired me while writing GIRL OF MINE:
(Watch until the end. There’s a surprise!)

A interesting tidbit about GIRL OF MINE:
My dad always worried about the cost of the electricity bill. If he walked past my bedroom and noticed that my light had been left on, he would turn it off and holler,
“That’s okay, Taylor, I got your light.”
It became a bit of a joke in our household. My siblings and I loved to try and catch my dad leaving on a light, just so we could say,
“That’s okay, Dad, I got your light.”
Now that I’m an adult with my own family, the term takes on new meaning.
The message behind it has worked its way into my new novel, Girl of Mine.
My father brought me into this world, he cared for me, and he taught me well. He gave me my “light,” my life.
He nourished my “light” and helped me become the person I am today.
So, Dad, thanks for getting my light.
I’ll always be grateful.

Taylor Dean lives in Texas and is the mother of four grown children. Upon finding herself with an empty nest, she began to write the stories that were always wandering around in her head, quickly finding she had a passion for writing, specifically romance. Whether it’s paranormal, contemporary, or suspense–you’ll find all sub-genres of clean romance in her line-up.
