A girl with a dark history…

Avery Breslin took a leap of faith when she changed her name. As Avery Patterson, she is no longer the daughter of a serial killer. No longer the girl who was bullied and abused through high school. A fresh name and a fresh start at Columbia University means Avery can leave all that behind. There’s only one thing marring her dream of a clean slate….

A boy with a past of his own…

Luke Reid has a lot going for him: sex appeal, badass tattoos and insane musical talent. Despite his guitar skills, his calling in life has always been to serve and protect. A NYPD cop by day, singer in rock band D.M.F by night, from the outside Luke seems like he’s got it made. But falling for a girl whose father was accused of deeply sinister acts—a man whom Luke shared a devastating history with, himself—only serves to complicated things.

Pieces of a puzzle…. Four symbols, four methods of destruction. A trade. Borrowed wings. Dark secrets that threaten to destroy.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette
~*~ Obsessed by books arc given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

"We're both a little broken, you and I. I see you, Avery. I really see you, the paces you're wounded, and I want to be the person to put you back together again."

Being young and in college is normally enough drama and angst for anyone but what if your dad was a murderer? What if your mother had emotional cut you off, providing you with everything you need to live financially but giving you nothing to soothe the loss in your soul? Moving away and starting fresh with a new name and a false past seems the only way Avery, Iris as she once was, can hope to escape the horror of her past. But sometimes the past doesn't want to remain secret...

This is an intense, gripping suspenseful read that had the hairs standing to attention on the back of my neck for a large percentage of the novel. Avery is trying hard to be a journalist,  to have morals and maybe just maybe prove to the world that her dad isn't who they think he was. Endeavoring to be better than gossip hungry news reports that helped destroy her life, she strives to be the top in her class and report only the facts, only the truth.  And yet she doesn't let anyone in, doesn't trust easily as she is hyper aware information is power but somehow her best friend Morgan at college manages to break through her armour and encourages her to live a little. Avery's life becomes a little more complicated as a face from her past walks right back into her life.

Luke Reid, small town cop, now working as one of New York's finest. He had a connection to Avery's dad before his death, a bond forged in pain and sorrow but was also the first on scene in that fateful night. He has maintained a friendship of sorts with Avery. They haven't seen each other since she disappeared to become someone else. Luke takes full advantage of the situation and ensures they meet up and resume their contact. Luke has changed in the time apart though, separated from his high school sweetheart and finding solace in his passion - music. He was taught to play by Avery's dad and pours all his emotions into his voice. Being part of an up and coming band D.M.F. could forever change Luke's path if only he has the courage to follow his dreams and chase what he truly wants. Caught between his need to save and protect, to help Avery and show her he loves her Luke is complicated man.

Caught between her desire for alpha male Luke, her blossoming friendship/relationship with sexy Irish exchange student Noah she knows her heart already belongs to one and is tryin to fight it by spending time with the other. To add more drama her best friend Morgan maybe dealing with her own demons and they suddenly rear their heads refusing to be hidden any longer.

And then boom...her real identity is revealed to college and Avery is sucked back into that reality. Human nature is cruel and people are petty, it's amazing how Avery rises from the ashes stronger and even more determined. Fighting to prove her dad's innocence as her Uncle is also pulled into the investigation due to some new information being uncovered. Four symbols may be the key to unlocking it all. Will Avery put the pieces together in time, can Luke open up and reveal the tragedy in his own life that Avery's dad helped him come to terms with?

This is a fast paced, amazingly well written story, with plots that are cleverly interwoven that keep you invested right to the last page. My jaw literally dropped at the last plot twist as I felt suckerpunched...I honestly did not see that coming. The writing style is gripping with the right blend of sexy sizzling attraction, strong characters and drama to make this a smashing five star read. I am so eager to read Summer...I can't wait to find out what else the future has in store for them.
 





Review by Emma Mistress of all Dark & Twisted
Winter by Frankie Rose is a New Adult novel and part one of a two part series. This book told predominantly through Avery Patterson's pov and is a dramatic, suspenseful, romantic and emotional read. Frankie knows exactly how to hold a reader's attention from beginning to end with engaging characters and intricately woven plot lines and twists.

Avery Patterson knows only too well how other people's actions, assumptions and deceits can change your life. She knows you can't escape your past, especially when people are determined to air their beliefs and grievances against you to gain their 30 minutes of fame. Avery has tried everything to escape the shadow of her past; moving states to New York to study Journalism, changing her name and suffering loosing everyone even, her mother, due to one person's actions: "My family name is synonymous with pain and murder no mater where I seem to go, and thats why I've abandoned it. That's why, when I left my last behind in small town Wycomming to come to college I became Avery Patterson."

What do you do when your past catches up with you? The past in the shape of a person who has one tenuous link to that past and they understand you but aren't being 100% open with you, do you trust them or severe all contact as their link to that past is too painful to bear and they could ruin all your carefully laid plans. Can Avery allow someone to breach her ice cold protective defenses which she uses to keep herself safe but lonely and maybe take a risk for a chance at happiness?

Luke Reid has secrets he needs to keep hidden too. He's linked to Avery in ways she doesn't know, he possibly holds the key to the truth but doesn't want to share this just yet until he's certain it's safe to reveal: will it ever be the right time and what will that truth of his cause Avery to do?

Luke Reid is a hot, tattooed, alpha Cop whose driven to protect and help others. He likes his job serving the community but his heart lies in music and performing with the band D.M.F sates that need of his on nights he's not working. He's like Avery leading a double life, will he ever be wiling to take a risk reaching for the stars or will he keep his dreams locked away and not daring to risk the fall of failure.

Can Luke or Avery help each other escape their painful pasts and work together to discover the truth of what happened all those years ago or will they both stay in the cold state of Winter forever with their own pasts and other peoples agendas working against them....
"but we're both a little broken you and I....I really see you, the places your wounded.I want to be the person to put you back together."

This is a novel that keeps the tension and suspense coming until the very last page. The dramatic final twists will leave you reading open mouthed for sure as you do not see them coming!!
Winter doesn't end on a cliffhanger but the door is left open for more and so roll on Summer as I want to know what happens next.

Cole McCade - Preorder Blast @ColeMcCade


A Second Chance at Paris by Cole McCade
One week in Paris. One chance with her childhood crush. And one lie that could ruin it all.

Before she was Dr. Celeste London, Astrophysicist, she was Mary Celeste Haverford: dork, loser, the geek formerly known as Hairy Mary. But she’d left all that behind—and left Ion Blackwell behind, nothing but an unrequited crush and the memory of a high school field trip, a night in Paris, and the words Celeste had never had the courage to say. She’d never expected to see him again…until a surprise encounter on a Parisian riverboat tour brings him back into her life, and gives her the opportunity to start over as someone new. Someone Ion doesn’t recognize, transformed from a social outcast into a polished, professional woman that Ion doesn’t realize is the girl he’s been longing for since childhood, the ideal he’s dreamed of his entire life.

Suddenly this vivacious (if charmingly awkward) “new” woman is teaching him that real love is better than any dream—but Celeste is hiding more than her identity. Hiding something that makes it hard to trust her increasingly erratic behavior, and her frequent secretive phone calls. When the truth comes out, the deception could shatter them both…unless they can give each other a second chance, and take a risk on love.

Pre-Order Blitz: Hero by Night by Sara Jane @smutbookjunkie

Hero By Night
Book Three: Independence Falls
January 20, 2015
Synopsis
He was nobody's hero until he landed in the wrong bed … Armed with a golden retriever and a concealed weapons permit, Lena Clark is fighting for normal. She served her country, but the experience left her emotionally numb and estranged from her career-military family. Staying in Independence Falls seems like the first step to reclaiming her life until the town playboy stumbles into her bed … Chad Summers is living his dream—helicopter logging by day and slipping between the sheets with Mrs. Right Now by night. Until his wild nights threaten his day job, leaving Chad with a choice: prove he can settle down or kiss his dream goodbye. But when he ends up in the wrong bed, the one woman in Independence Falls he can't touch offers a tempting proposition. Chad is ready and willing to give in to the primal desire to make Lena his at night—on one condition. By day, they pretend their relationship is real. But their connection extends beyond the bedroom, threatening to turn their sham into reality if Chad can prove he's the hero Lena needs night and day … forever. Hero 2
Excerpt
“I didn’t realize fake relationships came with flowers and presents.” She took the colorful arrangement, waiting for him to hand over the bag. “This is just a little something to get us started,” he said, holding it out of her reach. “For your side of the bargain.” She held out her hand. “Hand it over, Chad Summers.” Hoping he wasn’t making a huge mistake, running their deal into the ground before they left his family’s property, he gave her the pink gift bag. She set the flowers on the two-person table and pulled out the tissue paper. Then she reached inside, her blue eyes widening as she removed her present. “You bought me a vibrator?” Lena turned the pink silicone sex toy over in her hands. “Thank you. But—” “Lena.” He reached out, careful not to touch her as he took the vibrator from her. “Let me show you why.”

Spies, vengeance, and one seriously well-dressed man

"If Bourne dressed like Bond and acted like Grey, you'd have Jax De Luca."
An addictive new romantic suspense series from the desk of USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy/JJ Knight

Mia trembles as she reads the letter that arrives from Ridley Prison.

Seduction. Bondage ropes. Descriptions of things Mia has never experienced or known.

The man’s words are desperately passionate. He longs for a woman who must have given him a fake address. Mia’s address.

She plans to send the letter back. He’s a convicted felon.

But his words gnaw at her. She’s never done anything dangerous. And no man has ever talked to her like this.

So Mia writes him, pretending to be the woman he desires.

It's her one dark thrill in her dull, solitary small-town life.

The man is in prison for another fifteen years.

It's harmless. She is safe enough.

Until he escapes.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ Obsessed by Books arc given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

Ooooh think Mission Impossible, spies and treacherous dealings. Jax is in prison, having fallen for the schemes of Jovana and found guilty of murder, he breaks free to clear his name. Once upon a time he was in line to take over the Vigilantes, a top secret agency, but due to his poor judgement he has been sucked into a underhand plot.

Conversing in code with his contact on the outside he is aware Klaus must be in trouble as his responses are a little off, making his first move to track Klaus down he finds Mia at the safe house instead. Cue some kinky bondage and a sizzling attraction that neither one can deny. Jax, still jaded by his experiences at the manipulative hands of his last ex believes Mia is something she's not.

Mia is an orphan, her aunt has recently passed and she is floundering directionless in life. Finding letters in a stack of disregarded post she is intrigued by the passion of the words. Caught up in the erotism she writes back trying to be a little adventerous, a little less boring believing it will be nothing more than a little fantasy as he is an inmate and due to serve 15 years. Her world is shattered as she gets caught up in the crossfire...

This is the first in a series that is fast paced, suspenseful and full of tension. The imagery is got and the sexual awareness running between Jax and Mia is tangible. A fab introduction to the plot, characters and I can't wait to read more!

Four nail biting stars.

Review by Wendy Book Obsessed Pimpette

*** obsessed by books arc given for an honest review ***

this was thrilling read.

Mia is a young twenty year old has lost her aunt that she took care of. while trying to figure out what to do with her life next, she encounters a letter that has already been opened and is addressed to k. Kraus. what she read is shocking words of seduction and bondage making mia feel things she has never experience in her life. Against her better judgement she response to this letters from Jax, enjoying what words they hold, but not knowing that they hold a special code. Jax is receiving these letters from Mia not understanding whats written in them. Jax is determine to find out what is going on and is still planning his escape from prison. While Mia dreams of Jax when she sleeps she is waken one night to come face to face with the man in her dreams. This book is amazing, I hate its a cliffhanger but I cant wait to read the next one.
