Hard to Let Go on Goodreads

Book Description:

Beckett Murda hates to dwell on the past. But his investigation into the ambush that killed half his Special Forces team and ended his Army career gives him little choice. Just when his team learns how powerful their enemies are, hard-ass Beckett encounters his biggest complication yet—a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey. A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers’ Hard Ink Tattoo shop following a bad break-up—and finds herself staring down the barrel of a stranger’s gun. Beckett is hard-bodied and sexy as hell, but he’s also the most infuriating man ever. Worse, Kat’s brothers are at war with the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett’s sights . . . and in his arms. Not to mention their enemies’ crosshairs. Now Beckett and Kat must set aside their differences to work together, because the only thing sweeter than justice is finding love and never letting go.  


 Taking a deep breath, Beckett knocked on the door. No answer. He turned the knob, and the door opened. “Go away,” came a strained voice. Beckett poked his head through the opening. Kat sat in a ball in the corner, her legs pulled up to her chest, her arms hugging herself tight. “Aw, Jesus, Beckett. Really?” Her face was splotchy and her eyes watery, though he didn’t see any tears. Ten-to-one she was going through some adrenaline letdown right now, too. Which no doubt made it all worse. That shit could fuck you up even when you were used to how it left you feeling drained and shaky, by how all the stress you’d suppressed during the height of the crisis boomeranged twice over after the fact. He came into the room, closed the door, and turned the lock for good measure. And then he crossed to Kat, scooped his arms under her knees and behind her back and lifted her up against him. She smacked his chest. “Put me down.” “No.” He moved to the edge of the bed. “I don’t need this right now, Beckett. Put me down.” “Yes, you do,” he said, sitting on the edge of the mattress. He pulled her face in against his throat and smoothed her hair back from her cheek. She trembled against him, just the littlest bit, her skin hot to the touch. He pressed a kiss to her forehead and hugged her tighter. “You did good, kid.” Every one of her muscles went tight. Her hand fisted in his shirt. And her breath caught as she buried her face against his neck and shoulder. Then Kat burst out crying. And it was like being torn apart and put back together, all at once. He hated her pain, but he adored that she wasn’t hiding herself from him, and that she was letting him be there for her. He didn’t shush her, or try to talk her down, or encourage her to dry her eyes. To be sure, her tears were like daggers in his heart—they hurt like fucking hell. But the only way she was going to feel better was to let this shit out. Ironic realization for him—he did actually see that. But just because you could see what was good for others didn’t mean you had the first goddamned idea how to apply those principles in your own life. And that was a problem for another time anyway. What mattered right now was Kat. What mattered … was Kat.

On My Knees by J. Kenner - Review


Amazon ~ Barnes&Noble ~ iBooks ~ Google Play ~ Kobo ~ GoodReads

Author: J. Kenner
Publication Date:  June 23, 2015
Publisher:  Bantam Books
Series:  Stark International, Book 2
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Age Recommendation: 18 and up
Rating: 4 Stars

Book Description:

Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels:Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.

Powerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.

Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release.

I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back.

On My Knees is intended for mature audiences.

My Review:

On My Knees picks up right where we left off after Say My Name.  The secrets that we learned in the first book will be shared with others, sometimes willingly other times not.  The main storyline in On My Knees is learning how Jackson and Sylvia work through these secrets and discovering if they can hold it together for each other.  If they are strong enough to be more than the secrets they share.

In the first book I have to admit I was not a huge fan of Jackson Steele, he came across as shady and aloof to me and I couldn't bring myself to feel an attachment toward him.  I am happy to say that in On My Knees I have fond myself growing to like him.  We learn more about his past, more about how he became the person he is due to the treatment he received as a child.  His fears of abandonment plays a key role in this story.

Sylvia I actually found frustrating this time around.  She holds tightly to her secrets but then castigates Jackson for his, even if she does this quietly and to herself the reprimands are there and they are affecting the relationship.  Yeah, there are some pretty big secrets that come to light but she felt so hypocritical at times.  At the same time I loved her because she's fighting hard for what she wants.  When lines get blurry at work she accepts the challenge and stands her ground.  I also loved that Jackson doesn't hold her choices against her when it comes to her job.  I love that he can say he knows how important her work is to her and not make her feel guilty over her choices or try and hold it over her head.  I also loved that Damien sees her for the strong woman she is and while he has to make his own choices, choices for his business he doesn't shove her thoughts and opinions aside simply because he is uncomfortable with a situation.

Speaking of Damien we see a lot more of him this book and I was glad to have him back.  He's such rich (not trying to be puny) character so having his thoughts and emotions alongside Jackson and Sylvia's added a needed layer to the book.  It truly allows us to see a depth that would have been missing with out him, in particular reference to Jackson's childhood.

The one thing that I had a little trouble accepting this time around is the sex scenes.  Don't get me wrong, J. Kenner writes a steamy sexy scene, it was more the reasons for the sex.  I had to go in with a really open mind and constantly remember that these two people are messed up.  It just got frustrating at times that they would have sex simply because they were angry, because they were happy, because they wanted to fight with someone, because they needed some release from their emotional state.  I like a good sex scene as much as the next person but sometimes there can be too many sex scenes just for the sake of a sex scene.  Maybe now knowing all (well not all, I am not sure we will ever know ALL this couples secrets) I need to go back for a re-read and try and see it in a different light.  On that same note though I love how much they get each other, how open they are with their needs and wants  How they fit together so well and fight to work through things.

On My Knees leave us with another cliff hanger, but I think knowing what we know now it was easier to accept that then it was in the first book  (I am not a huge cliff hanger fan if you didn't guess, haha), it feels more validating to know that we got so many answers even when we are hanging on the edge waiting for more.  I am looking forward to Under My Skin and hoping that this couple gets a break because they are certainly getting put through the ringer!

This is a great read for any contemporary romance readers who like their plot with a side of steam, and a big helping of secrets and suspense.  On My Knees shouldn't be read with out having read Say My Name first, it is not a standalone.  If you enjoyed Damien and Nikki's story (The Stark Trilogy) you will definitely be a fan of this series.

Publication Date:  25 June 2015
Publisher:  Cerulean Books
Series:  The Collector's Society, book 3
Genre:  Fantasy Romance
Age Recommendation: 17 and up
Rating: 5 stars

Book Description:

After years spent in Wonderland, Alice Reeve learned the impossible was quite possible after all. She thought she left such fantastical realities behind when she finally returned to England. Now Alice has become a member of the clandestine Collectors’ Society, and the impossible has found her again in the form of an elusive villain set on erasing entire worlds. As she and the rest of the Society race to bring this mysterious murderer to justice, the fight becomes painfully personal. Lives are being lost. Loved ones are shattered or irrevocably altered.

If she wants to win this war and save millions of lives, Alice must once more embrace the impossible and make the unimaginable, imaginable. Sometimes, the rabbit hole leads to terrifying places. 

The Forgotten Mountain - Off With Their Heads


 The van door behind us slides shut. A click signals Marianne’s adherence to my wishes, and then we three descend upon the front door, the crunch of dead leaves and twigs beneath our feet cutting through the uneasy silence the gloom sunrise has brought. In a surprising show of gentlemanly manners, the A.D. moves to open the door. When the handle does not depress, a half smile curves his lips. “It’s locked. But no worries. I can have it picked open in no time.” “There is no need.” Darkish-blonde brows scrunch together. “But—” “Stand to the side, please.” When he fails to move at my thinly veiled order, Mary not so gently yanks our companion away. The door before us is thick. The handle is ornate. It is a beautiful door, no doubt chosen specifically to adorn a building as fine as Bücherei. It takes me three strong, measured swings of my war hammer against the handle and its surrounding area to break it apart and permanently scar its beauty. Picking a lock is kind, respectful even. A picked lock can be relocked. I do not wish this door to close behind me. I do not wish to be respectful of Bücherei. The time for genteel manners is gone. The A.D. is in danger of catching flies with his mouth as he ogles the door’s remnants. For someone who professes to be so clever, he certainly underestimates ladies far too often. Stale darkness, oppressive and opaque all at once, looms before us. I am unafraid, though. I am not even taken aback. I believe in the impossible, after all. I have seen, lived the impossible. I step past the wreckage into the house.     

My Review:

I adore this series...I don't know how else I can put it.  Heather Lyons has created an amazing world that I can so easily get lost in.  It is a world that plays out in my mind like a movie, in fact I think it would make fantastic TV show...that so needs to happen.  It would be like a mix of Dr. Who, Once Upon a Time, and CSI...It would be amazing.

We jump right back where we left off after The Hidden Library, which means you open the first page of this book screaming Noooooooo, that can not be happening.  There is no slow build up or down time, we are right back there and Alice, Alice is PISSED and I LOVE it.

Alice Reeve is the best female 'superhero' ever!  Yes I realize she has no traditional "super powers", what makes her a superhero is her determination and drive.  She is a badass, take no names, get sh*t done kind of woman and if that wasn't enough she is amazingly loyal and caring.  I love how everyone in this book has come around to fully recognizing her strengths.  There is no wishy-washy with her and she pulls no punches.  She's been to a force to be reckoned with since the moment she was brought to us but now, now she has her heart on the line and nothing will stop her.

As always the Heather's cast of characters are amazing, they have become a true team.  I am so in awe of how she weaves them all together perfectly, breathing life and brilliance into each one, even Grymsdyke (One of Alice's spider guards from Wonderland) who will fast become one of your favorite characters.  Finn is as always perfection, we get a bigger glimpse into Victor, Mary, and the A.D., the Librarian, and many more.  I have so many emotions tied up in these characters, Alice who I want to be, Finn who I want to Love, Jace, the White King....Oh JACE, I can't even go there most of the time...  These characters become a part of your heart and soul through these books, Heather truly makes them come alive and brings you into their world.  

There is not a lot I can say about the story and plot with out giving it all away so It's best that I leave you with a YOU HAVE TO READ THIS SERIES!  Heather answers all kinds of questions left from the first two books, but she also opens up a whole new set of them.  Thankfully there is another book in the series coming out, not so thankfully we have to wait for it, haha.  I can say that when you get to the end you are going to be begging for more.  This is an action packed, fast paced story with so many twists and turn and the romances...just so perfectly swoon worthy with out being over the top.  Any fan of fairytales, fantasy, paranormal, and/or romance will really love this series.  I can not beg you enough to pick it up and give it a try.  I promise it will be one of the best things you decide to do.  This series MUST be read from book one, everything builds together, all woven together as tightly as one of Grymsdykes webs so if you haven't started this series before, do not start with The Forgotten Mountain, start at The Collector's Society and then just hold on for an amazing ride!

Gold Shimmer by P.T. Michelle - Cover Reveal

Title: Gold Shimmer
Series: In the Shadows #4
Author: P.T. Michelle
Cover Design: P.T. Michelle
 Release Date: August 4, 2015

Book Description:

I never thought that my plan to crash a masked party to exact a bit of revenge would fall apart so easily. It was a foolproof plan. The absolute best scenario. Moon-and-stars-aligned worthy. No one would suspect I was anyone other than the wealthy, self-absorbed girl I pretended to be. The one who would wreak havoc that night.

Then again, I also didn’t plan on running into a wall of sharp wit and steely determination named Calder. The dominant, charismatic Navy SEAL might’ve called me by Celeste’s name, but he refused to let me hide my true self from him. His special brand of honest, seductive charm was impossible to resist. He was confident and demanding…and everything I wanted. But the deeper I fell, the higher the stakes rose while playing a role. So I held onto our intense connection for as long as I could, knowing that he would never know me as Cass.

When an unexpected turn of events gives me a second chance to see Calder again, of course the opportunity comes with strings attached. I had no idea how dangerously tangled and deeply knotted those strings would become, but for the one man who gave me the courage to live my life for me again, I’d do just about anything.

Even become someone else.

The Espionage Effect - The Blindfold Pic Quote


“Do you remember their love?” An odd question, even to my ears, but I needed to know. He didn’t reply right away, only briefly paused, then continued typing. I didn’t release the photograph. Didn’t turn around. Entranced to a level I couldn’t resist or deny, I remained rooted to the spot on his bamboo office floor, clinging to a fragment of someone else’s joyous life, stuck in my admiration for those who’d been able to defy the choking darkness of the world for its breath of light. The keyboard clicking ended entirely. But I barely noticed. My heart pounded in my ears as I gripped the frame, thumbs slipped into place on the perfect silver surface. My fingerprints might as well have marred the perfect picture. Its image marked me. Indelibly. How had one two-dimensional image branded my heart so fast? On a shaky exhale, it hit me. It hadn’t. The delicate aging photograph hadn’t been the one thing, it had been the last thing, the proverbial straw on the camel’s back—the catalyst to the fractures spider-webbing through an armored façade I’d so carefully constructed finally shattering apart, blowing to dust the once impenetrable fortress walls I’d imprisoned myself within. “I remember.” His voice slid over my senses, warm and soft. His heat came up behind me, wrapping around me as his strong hands ran down my arms, then covered my hands as they still clutched the frame. For the first time in my life, I finally stood without my armor. Terrified, yet convinced I needed to take the leap of faith even if I died from the fall, I leaned back into his strength. And he held me. As I began to shake, gripped the frame tighter for fear of dropping it, he simply held me. “Their laughter is the greatest memory; I can still hear its echo in my head, feel its presence in the middle of the night.” An aching pang thumped from behind my ribcage. That he would be lonely in the darkness too, seek the memory of what he’d once had to lull him to sleep. I’d done the opposite. “I can’t remember mine.” My voice croaked. Hands trembling uncontrollably, I clattered the bottom metal corners of the frame down onto the perfectly polished surface before I dropped it. “Their love, I mean.” I sucked in a ragged breath as my arms drew against my middle. I hugged myself, trying to hold in the pain that I’d never let myself feel. His arms followed, covering mine. A cramp burned at the base of my throat, and I closed my eyes, pinching back hot tears, afraid of losing myself to the scathing onslaught of feelings. As my breathing grew shallow, Alec tightened his hold, wordlessly providing his protection from the unseen threat.
