I was scared to read this book, because quite frankly, Jewel E. Ann makes me feel EVERYTHING. She makes me laugh, she makes me cry, she makes me fall in love and she breaks my heart. And as much as I love it, I fear it also because I never get the story I expect and I never expect the story I get. Which is a phenomenally good thing and hard to pull off. This book is no exception. It is the very best stand alone she’s ever written (and that’s saying A LOT because Only Trick and Undeniably You are spectacular).

The blurb for this story is accurate, but OMG it’s only the tip of the iceberg. I know reading it makes you think you are going to get a certain type of book about a certain thing… but you’re not. You’re are going to get something completely different. This is not a book about cheating, it’s a book about life and all the things you never see coming.

Parker is amazing and complex and somehow both a free spirit and a control freak. I adored her and I felt every inch of her struggle with right and wrong, good and bad and all the gray area inbetween. And I loved and felt for Gus too, but he is only a small portion of what makes this book amazing. There is so much love and life and learning in this book and such a long and winding road to the happy ending.

Here’s the thing… It’s pretty easy to make me cry. I’m a crier, it’s not that hard, write something sad and I’m gonna cry. I can name at least 50 different authors that pull that off. But making me cry from sheer freaking happiness, I only need one hand to count the authors that can pull that off. So as I was lying in my bed, sobbing because watching this love story unfold was so fucking beautiful, I’m was kind of in awe of Jewel. Anyone who has read her books knows why I love AJ, and Jones, and Cage, and Trick and Lautner. But the H in this book is my favorite, my very favorite… And I’m not done with him. My one caution on this book is this…I can’t stop reading it. I’ve read it like three times in a row. So…yeah…addictive.

Scarlet Stone by Jewel E. Ann

Amazon / < span=""> href=”http://apple.co/2eeitrX” target=”_blank”>iBooks / Nook

Title: Scarlet Stone

Author: Jewel E Ann

Genre: A romantic suspense standalone

Release Date: December 10th, 2016

Synopsis

“My name is Scarlet Stone, and my biggest fear is that someday I will find what I want most in life, and it will be impossible to steal.”

What happens when life just stops? When one moment makes you question your entire existence?

Scarlet Stone is a third-generation thief who has everything: a doting fiancé, a spacious London flat, and a legitimate job offer. In a single breath, everything becomes nothing, and she finds herself on a plane to Savannah, Georgia in search of the meaning of life.

After securing a six-month lease for a beachfront house on Tybee Island, Scarlet changes the way she looks, thinks, eats—basically her entire outlook on life. She needs peace, but what she gets is a housemate who looks like Thor, acts like a warden, and smells her proximity like a Bloodhound.

Theodore Reed is a carpenter and perfectionist with a body built of steel, a black, hollow heart, and a hunger for revenge. He doesn’t like company, girly-smelling crap, and British accents.

He resents every breath she takes.

She’s fascinated by his every move.

In time, they discover their coexistence is toxic, their physical attraction is electric, the secrets they keep mean the difference between life and death, and the only truth they share is that everything is a lie.

“Over eighty-five percent of the world’s population believes in a higher power, yet, very few people believe in miracles.”

Do you believe?

Jewel E. Ann is one of my very favorite authors, so any day that one of her books ends up on my kindle is a very good day. This woman completely sucks me into every story she tells and Scarlet Stone was no exception. I was hooked on this story from page one and invested by chapter two. As with all Jewel books, she doles out the story in tiny little increments. You just have to expect that she is going to feed you little pieces along the way and in the end she is going to tie up every single loose end and a perfect little bow that takes you by surprise. Just trust and hang on for the ride.

I have a hard time deciding what Jewel is better at…writing amazing, enthralling, complex characters or writing amazing, enthralling, complex storylines. To be honest, she excels at both. I loved Scarlet. She was unique and her back story was like nothing I ever read before. She was a times beautifully calm and serene and at other times a hurricane.  Theo was amazing (and frustrating) and a crazy mystery for most of the book, but when he finally shows his heart and his journey….WOW. I was blown away by him in both good and bad ways.

As always, Jewel doesn’t tell you the story of two characters, she builds a world full an amazing supporting cast and a plot woven so tightly around them you can’t help but buy into it completely. The begin of the story was amazing, and while there were parts in the middle where I questioned whether to not Jewel was going to be able to pull it all together, the end just completely blew me away. I have seriously gone back and re-read parts of the end over and over I loved it so much. There is NOTHING this woman could write that I will not read. Nobody does it better.

Title: One
Author: Jewel E Ann
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 28th, 2016

 

Synopsis:

Lake Jones is a cover girl for cutting-edge prosthetic legs, a binge-watcher of Netflix, known to spy on her neighbor through her door’s peephole, and fond of laser games with her hairless cat. She’s also a bit sexually-frustrated.

Until …

God bestows a breath of mercy upon her in the form of Minnesota’s NFL starting quarterback. But this gift is no stranger. Lake met Cage Monaghan three years earlier.

It was one day.
One moment.
One kiss that resurrected her dreams of finding love.

His dimpled smile distracts from his imperfections, which include: a love for country music, fishing, and a feline-hating girlfriend.

When life finally gives them their chance, it’s a humorous and heart-wrenching journey to find their place in the world.

“We would be Cage and Lake. We would be unpredictable. We would be reckless. We would give normality the middle finger.”

***This book is a standalone. However, it is HIGHLY recommended that any readers who have not, but may consider, reading the Jack & Jill Series, do so before reading this book. It contains spoilers to Jack & Jill.

Kristys Review (2)5 1_2 Star ReviewI’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but Jewel E. Ann is undoubtedly the best author writing books right now. That is not an opinion….it’s a fact. Her Jack and Jill series was my absolute favorite read of last year. Seriously, if you haven’t read that yet…..RUN AND GRAB IT !!! (Hint the first book, End of Day ,is free right now.)  So when I found out Cage and Lake were getting a book of their own (and a second chance) I was ecstatic.  I was worried though….I mean I had such high expectations and I knew there wasn’t going to be as much action as there had been in the JnJ series so I had doubts. Silly stupid me. I should know better. Every Jewel E Ann book I have read has been SPECTACULAR and this is no exception.

Cage and Lake are wonderful and it is so great to get to hang out with them again. Both of them will melt your heart and then, when they are together the heat will melt your lady parts. (Can I say that?) But what makes this book extraordinary is the fact that the story is not extraordinary. These are two real people, in real life situations, facing challenges and trials and every day life and they are trying to figure out how to do it together. Funny things happen because that’s real, sad things happen because that’s how life is sometimes. They have ups and down, they have stops and starts….it’s glorious. I adored every minute of it. Cage is right up there with the best BBFs ever written but Lake? Lake is messy perfection. I loved her

As with every Jewel book, One has ALL the emotions….EVERY.SINGLE.ONE. I laughed loud, I cried hard, I swooned big time and I cheered like crazy. This book…..this book is the ONE.

Excerpt

Tugging off her shirt, she smiled. Gone were the compression bras; she didn’t burn them, but they were hauled off with the trash shortly after the infamous refrigerator sex. Lace, satin, and underwire took their place.

“What you’re doing right now feels more intimate than anything you’ve ever done to me with your mouth.”

“We’ll see about that.” He wet his lips, eyeing her white lace bra. Approval glimmered in his eyes.

She removed the rest of her clothes, eager to be in his arms. He took a step back as she moved toward him.

“Stop.”

She froze. Her hands searched for a place to be: hanging idle at her sides, covering her breasts, shielding her neatly-shaven pussy?

“Repeat after me.”

“What?” Her voice squeaked with disbelief.

He grinned as his ego gobbled up her confidence. “I’m beautiful.”

Ryn squinted.

“Say it.”

She sighed. “I’m beautiful.”

“I’m taking back every bit of confidence that bastard took from me.”

It would never happen like that, but someone who hadn’t been in her shoes could never understand. However, she loved the naked man standing before her for saying it.

“I’m taking back every bit of confidence that bastard took from me.”

“I’m worthy of happiness.”

That one hit harder than it should have. She’d never given happiness much thought.

“Say it.”

“I’m … I’m worthy of happiness.”

“I’m going to marry Jackson Knight and love him in spite of his multiple fucked-up personalities.”

“Jackson—”

“Say it.” His voice carried a rare pain and vulnerability.

“I’m going to marry Jackson Knight…” she stepped closer and rested her hands on his chest “…and I’m going to love Every. Single. One. Of his fucked-up personalities.”

“I’ve had a shit day,” he whispered, brushing his thumb along her cheek. “Until now.”

She nodded slowly, then looked up at him. “I’ve had a shit life … until now.”

“Touch me,” he said.

“Where?”

“Everywhere. Make me feel human again.”

Kristys Review (2)

6 Stars

SOMETIMES I forget why I love books so much, Sometimes I forget why I put so much effort and energy into a book blog. It’s especially easy to forget theses things after reading a string of mediocre books that are neither memorable nor moving.

BUT THEN….then I read a book like Dawn of Forever and I REMEMBER. I remember that a book can make you feel everything. It can make you sob like a baby, it can make you smile and laugh, it can make you beg and break.  It can make you love and hate.  A book can make your heart expand with love until your chest hurts and then break it into a million tiny pieces.  And the very best books pick up all those little pieces and put your heart back together better than it was before.  Yeah….Dawn of Forever is that book.

There is NOBODY writing today that does it better than Jewel E. Ann.  Every book, every time and this series is no different.  The entire series is brilliant.  There is no other word for it.  Every character is so complete, so multi-faceted, so human and yet so extraordinary.  I loved every single one of them.  I cried and laughed and fell in love with each and every character.  I both wanted to BE Jillian and was so profoundly glad that I was not Jillian.  And Luke, Jackson and AJ??? There are no words.

One of the most impressive things about this series is how much is going on.  The plot is extensive, intelligent, enthralling and by far the most complex I’ve read in a long time…..and even with all of that….the plot is crystal clear, precise and easy to follow.  This book sincerely has the single best use of flashbacks I’ve ever read.  It’s never been done better.  I was simply blown away.

Above all else though, for me the eloquence of the writing is what made this series unforgettable.  The writing is freaking gorgeous.  Simply beautiful.  I’m not a big highlighter when I’m reading, but I highlighted a million things in this book.  Thoughts and the emotions have never been more beautifully expressed, I’m getting teary just remembering it and I finished the book 3 weeks ago.  Three weeks later and I still get weepy.

Here’s the bad thing about this book….the book hangover is a monster.  It was 2 weeks before I could even start another book, 2 weeks before I could move these characters out of my head, 2 weeks before I was even able to consider letting these characters go.

EVERY ONCE in a while you can read a book that makes you rethink everything you know. A book that makes you want to make changes. A book that has you taking stock and re-prioritizing. A book that hits so close to home you can’t help but recognize your own demons.

The Jack and Jill series by Jewel E. Ann may not be that for everyone….but it is that for me.

“‘God gave you a gift of 84,600 seconds today. Have you used one of them to say thank you?’ William Arthur Ward.”__Middle of Knight

One crazy dog—one awkward vet—one naked pool guy—and one life-changing month in California to make friends, fall in love, and twist fate.

Who gets paid to walk a dog and recline by the pool all day? Sydney Montgomery, aspiring museum curator and professional house-sitter, that’s who.

When her aunt and uncle need a house and dog sitter for thirty days in Palo Alto, Sydney can’t turn down the chance to be closer to her sister in L.A. Within twenty-four hours of her arrival, Sydney’s cleaning up runny dog poo, taking an uncooperative pooch to a handsome yet awkward vet, and being rescued from the bottom of the pool by a naked “pool guy.”

Lautner, “pool guy,” has a hot body and a cool persona. With eyes of iridescent blue oceans, he is mesmerizing, sexy, and addictive. What he is not—the pool guy.

Dr. Lautner Sullivan is a college wide receiver turned pediatric resident. He knows how to woo a woman with flowers, pastries, and sweet tea. Lautner is every girl’s dream, but Sydney is not every girl. She’s immune to rainbows, fairytales, pixy dust, and the “L” word.

The attraction is immediate, the friendship is earned, and the love is undeniable. Thirty days is their forever, but forever is not long enough.

Middle of Knight

End of Day

Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life.

Four caskets. Two bodies.

Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.

Six months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.

Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.

Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don’t kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.

Middle of Knight

The living seek forgiveness. The dead seek revenge.

A first love.
A last breath.
A haunting past.

Armed with a sinful past and an equally sinful body, Jackson Knight absolves his vow of celibacy to pursue Sergeant Monaghan’s unsuspecting—older—housekeeper.

Ryn Middleton, on the cusp of turning forty with a snarky daughter, a killer dog, and an abusive ex-husband, finds Jackson’s advances humorous and unbelievable. After intense negotiations including Vera Wang, Ed Sheeran, and sex four times a day, Ryn accepts Jackson’s marriage proposal on their first date.

What could possibly go wrong?

While struggling to lay claim to the woman of the dreams he never had, Jackson is forced to deal with a grief-stricken Jillian trying to hold on to her past without letting go of her future—the doctor who took her heart and the Sergeant who gave her a new one.

Beyond the hope for light, lies the middle of darkness, the illusion of truth, and a haunting past.

Dawn of Forever Teaser 2

Q & A with Jessica (and Jillian)

Q:  Jillian, why do you seem aloof or immune to the opinions of other people?
A: What people think should only shape them, not anyone else. You give away a piece of
yourself to every opinion that you let matter.
Q: So…. wearing panties, a thread-bare tank top, and red rain boots to get the mail is your
neighbors’ problem if it’s offensive, not yours?
A: Correct.
Q: Okay, moving on … Why the red rain boots?
A: Why not? I’m a woman. It’s my God-given right to not have to explain everything I do.
Q: Well said, I’m with you on that one.  Speaking of things you do, you feel the need to make men bleed before you have sex with them … what goes through your mind as you’re drawing blood?
A: That’s simple. I think, “Let’s see how bad you want to fuck me.”
Q: Do you feel regret after you do it?
A: Every time.
Q: So then why do you keep doing it?
A: The same reason some people get drunk and vomit over and over again. They like the
numbing feel of the alcohol in their blood and it becomes an addiction, a coping mechanism. I
like sex. The blood is my coping mechanism and my need to do it is my addiction.
Q: Luke and AJ are so different. How could you love two men who are so different?
A: Easy. One had my heart. The other showed me I could live—love—without it.
Q: What do you think of Jackson’s attraction to older women? Any idea what that’s about?
A: I think we’re twins, born of the same blood, and missing the “normal” gene. But mainly I think

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.

Blurb

Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life.

Four caskets. Two bodies.

Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.

Four months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.

Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.

Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don’t kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.

end of day teaserKristys review5 Star ReviewThis is my second Jewel E Ann book, the first being Only Trick which I absolutely loved (check out my review here), so I had high expectations for this one.  But I read Only Trick so long ago I think I almost forgot how good of a writer Jewel is.  Twenty percent into this book I was reminded…BIG TIME.  All I kept thinking was Oh my GOD this is so good!!! and Wow I love this book.  After reading a few ho-hum books in a row, I REALLY needed this.

Jewel does a few things better than almost any writer I know.  First of all, she can weave a mystery with the best of them.  She inherently knows the exact right amount of information to dispense and the exact right time to dole it out.  She keeps you enthralled, dying for more information but satisfied to enough to never feel bored.  And she makes sure that everything, every detail fits perfectly into the final picture.  Everything works, everything makes sense.

Secondly, she writes amazing characters that are so different from almost any other character’s I’ve read.  They are all so unique, yet so phenomenally real.  Jillian Knight is a wonderful heroine…funny, irreverent, independent, hot, horny and completely able to kick ass.  She’s also damaged, dark and confused.  And she manages to be all of that in a completely believable way.   All of the male character’s in this book are swoon-worhty and yet completely flawed.  You’ll fall in love with every single one of them and you’ll want to smack them in the back of the head too.

Lastly, she gives you a tremendous story…full and complete that will tug on all of your emotions.  I Jewel E Ann books makes me laugh out load, makes me cry every. single. time.  It takes me forever to read one of her books because I find myself constantly re-reading paragraphs…not because I didn’t understand them but because I adored them so much that I want to experience them a second time before I move on.  That happened in this book ALOT.

OK…here is my ONE  negative.  This book was a bit of a cliffy and I wasn’t ready for it.  Parts of the story came to their conclusions, so I wasn’t left feeling completely unsatisfied.  Actually, I felt very satisfied when I finished but I still crave more.  I would equate this book to that smaller orgasm you get from foreplay BEFORE you get the giant earth shattering orgasm at the end of great sex.  I enjoyed the hell out of the foreplay and I can’t wait for the sex (sex=book 2)

 

Excerpt

“Have you ever killed anyone?”

Jessica’s smile slipped. “If I told you then I’d have to kill you.”

“So you’re a secret agent?”

She flipped onto her stomach, resting her chin on her crossed arms. “If I said yes then it would no longer be a secret. Come on, Jones, you’re losing your focus. Don’t let me feel smarter than you or our time together will be over and I rather like hanging out here.”

“Luke,” he corrected.

“Lucas.”

“Luke.”

“Lukey.”

“LUKE!”

“Lulu.”

“I mean it!” Luke showed another rare moment of teetering emotion.

Jessica chuckled. “What are the chances of us having sex? I’ve never done it missionary, but you could possibly counsel me through it.”

He refocused on his crossword puzzle, filling in a word in pen. “Less than zero percent.”

“So, not in my favor, eh?

“Why not missionary?”

Jessica smiled in delight that Luke continued with the topic of conversation. “I’m sure you already know, but if you want me to say I need control, then sure, I need control. But the truth is I’d control any sex position you want to put me in.” Jessica winked as Luke gave her a fleeting glance. “I just don’t want you thinking you have control, even if I know it’s not the case. Pisses me off to see the smirk on a guy’s face when he thinks he has control.”

“Tell me why you need control.” Luke continued with his crossword.

“In bed?”

“Yes.”

“Someone has to have it.”

“Why?”

“Because someone initiates it.”

“So if I initiate sex with you will I have control?”

“There’s only one way to find out.” Jessica wiggled her eyebrows at an ill-humored Luke.

 Excerpt

Miss Knight.” He shut the driver’s door and slung his messenger bag over his shoulder. “Do you need something?”

“What does AJ stand for?” She inched forward until they were toe to toe, red rain boots to tan combat boots. Jillian loved how her skin tingled in his proximity, how she felt dominated by his stature but not submissive to his strength.

“Your shorts are too short.” The authoritative intonation of his voice felt like a tongue dragging over every pleasurable nerve ending in her body.

“Too short for what? You, Sergeant Monaghan?”

“We don’t have a club house or swimming pool. Why the bikini top?” AJ clenched his fists as Jillian moved her feet between his. Her cleavage-bared chest pressed against his stomach.

“Is my body appalling to you, Sarge?”

“The old men in this neighborhood don’t need to have their wives pissed at them all day because the new neighbor gets her mail wearing a little bit of nothing.” His voice escalated with each word as it muffled into pure grit.

“Sarge, are you upset about my mail-retrieving attire or that I get the mail after you’ve already left for work?”

He narrowed his eyes.

“Because you’ve already seen more than the other neighbors.”

AJ maintained a scowl, but his deep swallow gave him away.

“How’s your lip?”

The tip of his tongue instinctively glided over the small red spot that was still there. “Tell me. Are you one of those kinky dominatrixes that likes it rough?”

Jillian twisted her lips and rolled her eyes, diverting her gaze from his. “Hmm … no, that’s not an accurate assessment.” Dr. Jones ruled out that possibility years ago.

“And why is that?”

She yanked his T-shirt from his pants and snaked her hand up a few inches against his taut, bare skin. Gripping his dog tags, she gently tugged until he gave in and leaned forward to prevent her from breaking them.

“Because I don’t want you to submit to me,” she whispered her words like a potion meant to cast a spell.

AJ secured her ponytail in his fisted hand. “I assure you words like surrender, succumb, and submit are only under the list of things I’m incapable of doing.”

Jillian smiled. She never considered her issue an addiction, but at that moment it was powerful and all-consuming. “I’m going to bring you to your knees, Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan.”
