Music . . . the heart’s greatest librarian.

The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia.

At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I’d always envisioned. I’d found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.

You see, my favorite songs had a way of playing simultaneously. I was in love with one man’s beats and another’s lyrics. But when it came to the soundtrack of a life, how could anyone choose a favorite song? So, to erase any doubt, I ditched my first-class ticket and decided to take a drive, fixed on the rearview.

Two days.

One playlist.

And the long road home to the man who was waiting for me.

 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~REVIEW~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ll start with this: This book is from another dimension.


First the blurb talked to me on a almost spiritual way. Music is, with books, something I’m really passionate about. I can dedicate hours, days, obsessing over lyrics and melody. I’m okay with saying I’m a tad crazy when it comes to music. So when I learned that Kate Stewart, one of my favorite authors, was about to write a book around music, rock star, concert, passion, I was in, eyes closed.

Then, the writing. This woman can write, and her words are powerful. I don’t want to spoil the book but when an author makes you crave words like she did, that’s what I call true magic.

I am completely enamored with this story. Definitely one of her best works, Kate Stewart takes us on an emotional journey, one you will not forget. I never expected this book to pull so many heartstrings but it did. It freaking did, to my utmost amazement.

 

 

 

Third and Long (Moving the Chains 3) by Kata Cuic

Synopsis

Not everyone plays by the rules.

Eva Papageorgiou has it all: the popularity that always felt so elusive in high school, looks that men can’t ignore, and a boyfriend that other women covet. She’s gorgeous, powerful; she has the world at her fingertips.

And it’s all a lie.

The problem with living a lie is how easy it is to forget who you’re lying to. Eva’s time to withdraw into the shadows has expired, courtesy of Rob’s rising fame. Her only option is to hide in plain sight.
Amid all the chaos, Rob is her safe escape from it all. They continue to be stronger together than they ever could be on their own.
Until being together is what tears them apart.

Rob Falls has everything he’s ever wanted: his dream girl, a winning team, respect from everyone. He’s at the top of his game, with a Heisman nod on the horizon, and the potential to be a first-round draft pick.

And it’s all crumbling before his eyes.

The mounting pressure of being an athlete at the next level while doing all he can to protect Eva takes its toll. He doesn’t sleep enough, he worries constantly, and he’s torn wanting to be in two places at once.
Rob never imagined the day he’d have to choose between fame and love.

Sometimes life makes choices for us.

With the game and their hearts on the line, will Rob and Eva keep their secrets hidden? Or will they reveal everything to each other, to themselves, to the world…only to lose it all?

Kata Cuic’s tagline is Real Romance from the Trenches of Real Life. Seriously, there has never been anything more fitting. This book, these characters… they are real to me. I think about them, I cry for them, I hope for them, I want for them. When this series ends I will mourn the loss of them, I will cry because I won’t get to follow them into old age. Hell, I have tears rolling down my face right now just thinking about it. Nobody…NOBODY writes like this. I can’t think of one other author that writes real life so perfectly, so eloquently and so emotionally.

This book is both a big departure from the first two books of the series and a perfect logical inevitable progression for the characters. The first book, First and Goal, is sweet and funny and emotional. It’s first love and first mistakes at their finest. The second book, Second Down, is sadder and tougher. It’s love surviving in the face of adversity and heartbreak. And this book….this book is love struggling to survive in the face of real life. Real life were things can go from amazing to unbearable in the blink of an eye, where things aren’t fair and love isn’t easy and some days it’s all you can do to hold on. But where the good days make all the bad days worth the effort.

Rob and Evie are real people to me. They are so intricate and fleshed out and believable. In this book, more than any of the others in the series, you understand them, you feel what they feel, you know them and consequently you take the journey with them. When they got it right, my heart rejoiced with theirs, and when they made mistakes my heart broke with theirs, and when they cried, I cried horrible ugly-cry tears. I have never, in my life, read a book that made me feel so much. And the other characters in this story elicit just as much emotion from me. There are characters that I love passionately, and characters I hate viscerally. There is literally not one character in this story that I don’t have some kind of reaction to…and that to me is the mark of a great book. Nothing is a throwaway, everything, every character, every scene, every action,  builds this world and this story.

I read a ton of books, and I have for years, and in my opinion, there are only a handful of authors I’ve come across that can make a story live and breathe real life the way Kata Cuic does. I have loved other books and other couples, but with Rob and Evie I find myself constantly needing to be reminded that they are not, in fact, real people. Third and Long will stay with you long after you’ve finished it, at least that’s true for me.  This book is not light and fluffy, it’s not rainbows and unicorns, and if that’s what you’re looking for, this might be the wrong fit for you. But if read to feel real emotions, if you read because you appreciate the journey as much as the destination, if you read because sometimes you need to get lost in someone else’s life for awhile, then this book will blow you away. When the last book in the series comes out, I have a feeling it will be bitter sweet. I can not wait for the rest of Rob and Evie’s journey and I desperately anticipate their HEA. I know when they get there, no other couple will ever have deserved it more. But I also know, when I turn to the last page, I will be so grateful for the journey and so sad for the end of the ride.

About the Author

Kata lives near Pittsburgh, PA with her husband and three children. When she isn’t writing or rewriting or editing or staring at the infuriating blinking cursor on her screen, she’s reading. A self-proclaimed binge-reader who has issues with moderation, she struggles to wear all the necessary hats of wife, mother, reader, writer, chef, maid, chauffeur, nurse on any given day. Caffeine, wine, and natural insomnia are constant bolsters in the pursuit of getting everything done.

She has a degree in Linguistics and is, in fact, fluent in several American English dialects including Pittsburghese and sarcasm. She’s eternally grateful to be a part of the last generation to go through college without social media documenting the entire ordeal.

A few of her favorite things are books (duh), chocolate, cats, and gardening. Her biggest guilty pleasure is 90s rap and R&B (which she has to listen to when the kids aren’t around).

Choosing Forever (Torn Duet #2) by Mia Kayla

My First 6 STAR read of 2017

On Amazon: http://amzn.to/2lFFLb6

 

Synopsis

Life is made up of choices.
Single choices like bricks laid out in a path. A path that leads to your future.

At twenty four years old, I would have never guessed I would be stuck between two men—two men from opposite spectrums of the universe.
Their lives, their worlds, their demeanor is as different as the darkest of nights and the lightest of days.

I love them both, but I have to choose.
There is only one choice I can make.
And I choose forever.

I read a lot of books so it’s rare for me to close a book and know immediately that it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read…. but with this book I knew instantly. It’s that crazy good. I just want everyone to read this duet, absolutely everyone. It just does everything right. It is simply one of the most beautiful romances I’ve ever read. Actually it’s maybe two of the most breath-taking romances I’ve ever read, which is why I was so blown away.

I know not everyone loves a triangle…read this one anyway. I know people like the concept of a once in a lifetime love that is like nothing the H/h have ever experienced before….read this book anyway. I know not everyone embraces the idea that you can love two different people for very different reasons at the same time….READ. IT. ANYWAY !!!

This book took my breath away…over and over. It made me smile and swoon and laugh and cry and scream and sob and question everything. I’ll be honest, I finished Choosing Forever a while ago and I am still thinking about it. A year from now I will still be thinking about it. It immediately claimed a spot in my all time Top Ten. This book…. these feelings… this emotion…. THIS is why I read.

💜 Punk 57 💜 by Penelope Douglas

Title: Punk 57
Genre: New Adult
Author: Penelope Douglas
Release Date: October 21, 2016

On Amazon: http://amzn.to/2eoCq0C

 

Synopsis


From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Douglas, comes the latest New Adult romance of love, hate, and everything in between…

“We were perfect together. Until we met.”

Misha

I can’t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me.

In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.

It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever…

And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.

Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.

We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?

Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?

F*ck it. I need to meet her.

I just don’t expect to hate what I find.

Ryen

He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.

Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his phone number or picture or something.

He could be gone forever.

Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.

*Punk 57 is a stand alone New Adult romance. It is suitable for ages 18+.

Kristys Review (2)4 1_2 Star ReviewWhen a Penelope Douglas book hits my kindle I’m like a kid on Christmas morning….excited, impatient and a little worried that I might be disappointed. Luckily this author NEVER disappoints.  I could not put this book down, I just wanted real life to disappear so I sink into this world and never come out. It had everything I love in a book: angst, humor, emotion, passion and that sense that something big is just around the corner.

I loved Misha, he was messed up perfection. He was the good guy wrapped in the bad boy tattoos. He was sweet and sour and salty in all of the best ways. Ryen was a more challenging character to fall for. She was everything I loved and hated about high school. Somehow she was the girl you hated and the girl you were all rolled up together. She was a character very few writers could pull off properly and Penelope hit the mark perfectly.  And once again, Penelope writes a book about high school characters that are perfectly teenage, yet completely relatable to readers of any age. OH…

And this book was smoking hot too.

The one and only reason this book wasn’t a 5 star read of me was that the ending came a little too quickly. I love resolution in the books I read, but I thought maybe the last 1/4 of the book threw a little too much at me too fast. I guess I just wanted time to savor some of the resolutions a little bit more.

I would say the true test of a book is how long it stays with you after you turn the last page. This book has not left the front of my kindle carousel. I have gone back and read passage after passage. I’ve look up scenes, bookmarked and highlighted. Like everything Penelope Douglas writes, I will read this over and over and then buy the audiobook when it comes out so I can listen to it too!!!

Fall Back Skyward by Autumn Grey <3 Release Blitz and 5 * Review <3

 

 

Title: Fall Back Skyward
Series: Fall Back #1 
Author: Autumn Grey
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: May 9, 2016

 

Blurb
Eleven years ago, I saved her. I loved her. I still do. But they took me away from her and locked me up. For two years, all I could think about was her. She consumed me. Took up every room in my head and gave me something to focus on, knowing I would see her soon.

Nine years ago, I watched her as she walked down the aisle and into the arms of a man that wasn’t me. My brother. I promised him that I’d leave town.
I did and never looked back.

Now, I’m staring at seven letters, each envelope stamped with one word in bold, red ink: URGENT.

I have no choice but to go back home. Seeing her will be the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do. But in order to reconcile with my past, I have to face my present. Even if the thought of seeing her, knowing that she is out of my reach, kills me.

I have no idea what awaits me, but I can only hope that the demons of my past will finally be buried and put to rest.

 Wenn's Review
5 STARS REVIEW
I’m having the hardest time writing this review. It was all I wanted and at the same time it exceeded my highest expectations. I’m afraid all the words in the world will fail to explain how beautiful and hopeful this love story was.

Of course to reach the happy ever after they both deserve so much, Cole and Nor will have to go through hell and heaven. They will have demons both psychological and physical to fight against.
It felt like I was reading two books at the same time, one with a young version of Cole and Nor and a second story with two grown ups with a scars and broken souls.

If someone told me I could fall in love twice with the same character I would not have believed it. I fell in love with a young Cole, a sweet boy, fiercely protective of his loved one. He made me giggle like a school girl, love like I could love for the first time. I had butterflies in my stomach each time he came to see Nor.. I then fell in love with an older Cole, a strong man, broken but resilient. A man with a past that made him turn his back to his family, his first love, his future. A man who will have to face all he ran from…

If someone told me I would fall in love twice with the same character I would not have believed it. I fell in love with Nor, a beautiful scarred soul, a giver and carer who would do anything for her family. A devoted daughter and sister. She was a fierce girl, every day blossoming thanks to Cole and her own willpower. I then fell in love with a woman who went through so much, taking care of everyone, trying to heal and surmount the pain, the loss of her present, the fear of her future. But how to do this when you still mourn your past?

I also fell in love with the couple Cole and Nor formed. He saw through her pain right from the beginning. Was there for every step, every fall, every victory. A love like this is so pure and unique. It is built on solid foundation and can never be broken. But when outsiders do everything in their power to stop two soul mates’ dreams, things are done, regrets are numerous, forgiveness is hard to come…

If someone told me I would have hated a character that much I wouldn’t have believed it. I wanted to scream, curse, punch this mean piece of shit, who didn’t realise he had before him the best daughter one could wish for. He was a pathetic excuse of a father and husband.

This book is full of hard situations, and even with all the sorrow, desolation, anger I felt, it is one of the lost hopeful book I’ve read.

Autumn Grey is definitely a go to author for me as I know she will make me go to the deepest parts of my soul, make me shed some tears (I almost NEVER cry while reading), make my blood boil, my cheeks turn red, my body tingle…
Every single word she writes is a little treasure to be cherished. I highlighted so many quotes and took a lot of time to think about their meanings. It is so inspirational.

I hope you’ll give this book a chance. I will never forget it

Excerpt
The air around me shifts, like atoms rearranging themselves to accommodate a potent, powerful entity. My eyes snap open. I swing my head around to my right and there, lying next to me calmly as though it’s something completely normal, is Cole Holloway.

I bolt upright and turn to face him. “How did you get up here?” He doesn’t respond. Then I remember that he can’t hear me. I touch his arm, making sure he can see my lips. Thank goodness the moon is full tonight. He tilts his head to the side to look at me. “How did you get up here?”

He points to the side of the building. I follow his finger and see the white ladder poking at the roof. Ah, I’d completely forgotten about it.

He turns his head and faces the sky. Holding my breath, I study his profile; his sharp nose and angular jaw. A faint scent of musk cologne drifts toward me, making the hair on the nape of my neck stand on end.

Dragging my gaze from his face, I look up at the infinite dark sky and I smile. Every part of me is centered on him. His movements. Every rise and fall of his chest doubles my heart beat until the only sound that fills my senses is my pulse pounding in my ears.

Thump.


Thump.

Thump.

Seconds, minutes, probably hours go by. Centuries could pass. Seasons could come and go, but I wouldn’t notice, because this is the most spellbinding moment I’ve ever experienced in my seventeen years on this earth.

Something fleetingly touches the back of my hand, startling me.

There it is again. A soft touch along the side of my pinkie. My skin is on fire now. My heart is in my throat and my lungs are nowhere near working right. The touch is firm now. Deliberate. He hooks his pinkie around mine and tugs gently. Then he exhales hard, and I swear the roof moves beneath our bodies. Suddenly, the finger uncoils from mine, leaving me cold. I blink several times before twisting, turning my head to the side to look at him.

Did I imagine that touch?

I glance down and see that his hand is curled into a fist at his side. He sits up, then turns slightly to the side to face me. His face is framed in shadows so I can’t see it clearly. A shiver skitters down my back as he leans forward without warning until I feel his quick breath fan my lips, his eyes on my mouth the entire time. He takes a tendril of the hair fanned around my head and rubs it between his fingers, his eyes not leaving mine. I’m captivated by his eyes, his overwhelming presence. I should scold him for being too forward and getting into my space, but I can’t. I’m mesmerized by the inhales and exhales passing through his parted lips.

He lets go of my hair and climbs to his feet with the agility and swiftness of a panther. Between one breath and the next, he’s gone, disappearing into the night as quietly as he came. Taking with him a tiny piece of my heart. As odd as it sounds, I feel a certain connection to this quiet boy.I attempt to prop my upper body on my elbows so I can watch him as he walks back to his house, but they feel too jelly-like. I settle back on the roof, grinning and listening to the muffled crunch of his shoes on the grass until it fades.

What do you do when everything you thought you knew about yourself turns out to be a lie, forcing you to re-evaluate your life?

Do you face them?

Or do you run?

My name is Suzy. I am the girl who has always believed in fairytales, unicorns, and that wishing upon a shooting star would make all my dreams come true.

I have always had faith that I would find my very own Prince Charming. I have always been certain that we all have a soul mate…that we will find our true love someday, and that we must never give up.

But not that long ago, I started to wonder…

What if my Prince is in fact…a Princess?

Why is it so hard to be seen for who I am?

Love is love, isn’t it?

I have started to lose faith in my once so adamant beliefs: where is my one? Where is the person who will be able to restore my faith in the fairy-tale and the happy-ever-afters?

Is New York the right place for someone like me? Or will she squish me like a small, insignificant bug beneath her feet?

Only time will tell.

MY REVIEW

5 STARS

Fool for Love is such a beautiful and inspirational tale.

Fool for Love has been on top of my most expected books list.
I met Suzy in Make Me Believe and fell in love with a charming, bubbly, funny, full of life young woman.

We meet her again in Fool for Love but this time Suzy is not as bubbly and is a shell of her former self. After a hard and hurtful confrontation with her parents, Suzy leaves for New York.

Suzy meets Garrett under unexpected circumstances to say the least. They make a deal, and thus starts the hide and seek, the hot and cold, the sweet and tortuous “relationship” between them.

Garrett is a troubled man. Older than Suzy, he has been through so much already, following the motions of life but not living them.
When he meets Suzy, a tiny spark burst into his life. As much as he tries to deny and fight his attraction to Suzy, he can’t stay away from her for long. And Oh boy, he puts so much effort at avoiding her!!!!

We can only root for those two lovable (but grumpy 😉 ) characters who will find their solace in each other arms and hearts.

Garrett and Suzy will, step by step, build themselves a future as individuals, as a couple and along the way they will slowly heal each others scars.

Karen Ferry has a way with words. Her stories are always very introspective, wise and thoughtful.
Her writing puts you right into the story, living with and through each characters’ actions and reactions.

EXCERPT

She leans down and brushes her mouth over mine, and the zing that always shoots through me

when she kisses me hits me straight in my heart. She doesn’t take it further, though, and I close my

eyes when she places her head on my shoulder.

“Sleep, honey,” she mumbles.

I close my eyes.

But sleep won’t come. Not even when I feel her body relax further into mine, or when I hear

the faint snores falling from her mouth.

My mind won’t rest. It keeps reliving that horrible night, or what I remember of it, over and

over again until it circles back to Suzy’s words.

Life is for the living.

I don’t give in to the small seed of hope she has planted in my once so cold heart.

I want to flee from the foreign emotions coursing through me at this very moment. I have to

keep reminding myself to keep my heart closed off under lock and key, and in order to do that, I

must push Suzy away from me for good.

The thought makes me sick to my stomach, but it’s for the best.

I cuddle closer to her and kiss her forehead.

“Sleep, my waif…the morning will come soon enough.”

Something akin to a needle pierces through my heart. I lie there, close to her, unable to sleep

despite my exhaustion, as it bleeds on throughout the night.

A plan begins to form in my mind – a plan to push her away.

She will come to hate me in the morning, but it’s the only way I can think of to keep my heart

intact – before I fall head over heels in love with her and begin to believe that I could ever have a

future with her in it.

Before I ruin her forever.

And before I ruin myself.

A Letter to my Readers

 

Rape. Just typing that word makes my gut tie up in knots. And that’s part of the problem.

Because it’s so uncomfortable, we don’t want to talk about it. So it gets buried at the bottom the newsfeed or forgotten altogether, like the backlog of untested rape kits.

Last March, I released Quiet Angel in which the heroine is a survivor of childhood sexual assault.

A few weeks later, my husband became gravely ill, and we spent the rest of the year (5 long

hospital stays and 4 long surgeries) fighting to regain his health. As I sat in the hospital chair

next to his bed night after night, I got messages from women about how my book touched them.

Some shared their reasons, and others didn’t.

I came to learn that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. How could I not know that? just released a book on the very topic. Yet I didn’t see one post about it on any of my social

media accounts.

Early this year, I began writing Layers of Her with the intent to spread awareness and donate of April’s profits to charity. I was nervous when I started, and I still am. I mean, how much the profits be? Will readers assume I’m a survivor or I know one? Will I do the topic justice?

Why am I doing this? It’s a whole lot easier to stay silent. But that’s the whole problem, isn’t I work in a field, in the genre of fiction, that is mostly comprised of women, where sexual assault

is one of the most common tropes. And with each passing page, we pull for our broken heroes

and heroines to heal, find love, forge a new path. That’s all we want for them. We need to do same for the real life heroes and heroines, those brave souls who fight the real fight every single

day. So join me this April in making some noise to raise awareness, not only for the survivors

but for those who love them.

AP new - synopsis.jpg

People always say it’s what’s on the inside that matters. If that’s the case, I’m screwed. On the outside, everything looks put together — blonde hair, blue eyes, tall and lean. By society’s standards, I’d be considered attractive. But f*ck society, I know what I am. I know what I’m made of. The recessive genes that reared their heads and created a decent looking package on the outside don’t make me who I am. What about all the evil lurking inside? What about all the other parts of me that aren’t so easy to see? Some of the most beautiful animals are also the deadliest. Take the polar bear, for example. Cute and cuddly on the outside, but it’s really a predator that will bite your f*cking head off. That’s a dangerous combination.

 

And that’s exactly like me, exactly who I am. Bad — and once you go bad, you can never go back.

WARNING: This book deals with the harsh reality of rape that could be upsetting for some readers.

AP new - excerpt.jpg

 

“What made you come for me?” she asks.  I tell her my theory about men making decisions based on one of three body parts — head, heart, dick.  “So which led you to my house tonight?” she asks.

 

“Let’s just say two out of three ain’t bad.”

 

Her giggle fills up the room.  “Stone?”

 

“Hmm?”

 

“Don’t let me forget.”  

 

“Forget what?”

 

“How good I feel right now,” she says.

 

I know exactly what she’s feeling.  She doesn’t think she deserves to be happy.  It’s a constant waiting on the other shoe to drop so you can prove to yourself that all the bad shit you fill your head with is true.  That you’re bad, and that’s why bad things happen around you, or to those you love.  Dealt with that myself when Tate got her diagnosis.  Who am I kidding?  I still fight those demons, knowing she’s suffering because of my mistakes.  Self-blame is a bitch.  Self-hatred is even worse.  Guess I’ll just have to teach Campbell to love herself as much as I love her.

 

Yeah, yeah, it’s fast.  But how long does it really take to fall in love with someone?  A minute?  An hour?  A day?  A year?  For me, it took exactly one kiss.  The moment her lips touched mine in that hospital room, I was gone.  

 

Besides, what do you really have to know about a person to love them?  Not a damn thing other than how they make you feel when you close your eyes at the end of the day with them wrapped in your arms.

Blurb

Ellie Anthony isn’t looking for love. She isn’t even looking for a man, but when Jax Mayson insists on keeping her and her daughter safe, she’s left with no choice but to trust him. Now she just hopes she doesn’t get hurt when she falls hard for a guy who’s known for breaking hearts.

BOOM the moment he sees her. When he finds out she has a daughter, he realizes he wants a family, and he will do whatever is necessary to keep both of his girls safe, even if that means facing the demons from his past.

 

 

 

 

Excerpt: Until Jax

“Thank you again for taking me.” Pulling my eyes from the road for a brief moment, I look at Ellie. Her head is resting against the window, her legs pulled up onto the seat, tucked near her ass, and her arms are wrapped tight around them. One thing I’ve noticed about her over the last few hours is she’s always wrapping her arms around herself or tucking her body into a tight ball. It’s like she’s forcing herself to stay together.

“I told you I got you, baby,” I say gently, wanting more than anything to take her hand in mine, but every time I touch her, she freezes up like she’s waiting for me to strike out at her, and I would be lying if I said that didn’t piss me the fuck off. It does; it feels like a slap in the face every time it happens.

“I know,” she whispers, and the te

ars I hear in her voice cause a sharp pain in my chest.

Fuck.

“This is the turnoff.” Her feet go to the floorboard and her hands to the dash as she sits up taller, moving her face closer to the windshield. We drive up a long dirt driveway with forest and the occasional broken down car on each side. When we make it to the top of the hill, a singlewide trailer comes into view, with junk cars and garbage piled up out front.

As soon as I come to a sto

p, she opens her door and hops out before I can tell her to keep her little ass in the cab. I don’t even know how I’m going to deal with the range of emotions that have settled over me since seeing her for the first time.

“Fucking Boom,” I mutter, getting out behind her and doubling my steps until I’m able to reach her side, where I wrap my hand around her waist and pull her closer to me. She’s so fucking tiny that the top of her dark head sits right at my chest. So fragile, from her too soft skin to her petite size. And she’s mine.

Wenns Review

4 Star Review

What can I say… I’m a huge Aurora Rose Reynolds fan.
I’ve read all her books and each one is precious.

I loved this book, really but I didn’t get a BOOM as big as I usually do when reading Aurora’s books. I thought, maybe, it could have been a little bit more detailled.

Don’t get me wrong, you need to read this book, to meet these fabulous characters.
You’ll fall in love with them, you’ll cry with them and as Ellie, you will find it hard to resist the hot piece of man that is Jax.

But Ellie protects her heart and her daughter too. I understood her reservations and found it absolutely funded.

All the Mayson’s family was here to support Ellie and Hope in any way they could, and THERE you remember why you love the MAYSON so much!!!

In a nutshell, I still adore Aurora Rose Reynolds’ writing and will as always be fangirling each time she releases a new book.

Book Blurb

The New York Times Best Selling author Nashoda Rose is back with the much anticipated story of Kai and London in the Unyielding series.

Kai
There is nothing I care about.
No attachments.
No connections.
Outwardly, I’m a perfect gentleman.
Until my target sees my knife.
I fear nothing, not even death.
In my world, death is considered a privilege.
But my life comes with unbreakable cruel strings and
when I met her, I should’ve walked away.
I didn’t.
I was too selfish.
And that sealed her fate.
Because one week with me led her into the hands of ruin.

London
We all have unique layers that make up who we are.
What makes us vulnerable or strong.
What we fear and what excites us.
But peel back those layers and you’re left naked and exposed.
They did that to me.
Each piece was slowly stripped away then burned.
I merely existed.
But there was one layer they overlooked.
The most important of them all—the tie to one man.
The man responsible for me being this way.
The man who found me.
And the killer who would do anything to protect me.

Perfect Ruin is the dark erotic story of Kai and London.
Their beginning.
And the continuing story of Vault.

Must be read in order:
Perfect Chaos (Unyielding, #1) Deck and Georgie
Perfect Ruin (Unyielding, #2) Kai and London
Perfect Rage (Unyielding, #3) Connor’s story
