*New Release* Empire by Rachel Van Dyken

Empire 0 days

 

empire smash cover art

I have lost everything.

My purpose

My love

My soul

Death knocks on my door, I want to answer, but every time I reach for the handle — the promise I made her brings me back.

So I breathe.

I live.

I hate.

And I allow the anger to oil beneath the surface of a perfectly indifferent facade. I am broken, I don’t want to be fixed.

But the Empire is crumbling and it’s my job to fix it.

My job to mend the pieces that were scattered over thirty years ago.

A trip to New York, only one chance to redeem a lost part of our mafia family.

The only issue is, the only way to fix it, is to do something I swore I’d never do again.

An arranged marriage.

Only this time.

I won’t fall.

Or so help me God, I will kill her myself.

My name is Sergio Abandonoto, you think you know my pain, my suffering, my anger, my hate?

You have no idea.

I am the mafia.

I am the darkness.

Blood in. No out.

*Blog Tour / Review* Wednesday by Kendall Ryan

hump day avail nowWEDNESDAY

By: Kendall Ryan

Release Day: May 23

Standalone

 ebook Wed

synopsis

Hard core fucking.

It’s not what I really want, but it’s all he has to offer. He’s filled with turmoil and heartache and regrets, but for two hours every Wednesday all he feels is me. How much I desire him, how desperate he makes me, how much I’d like things to be different between us. Real.

He used to be my best friend back before he got married. And now? Now, he’s a young widower. It’d be wrong on so many levels to expect something more from him. So I give him what he needs. Dark delicious fucking. But I know I can’t keep this up. I’ve already given him my body, my soul. I want him to have my heart. It might drive him away forever, but that’s a risk I’m forced to take.

Wednesday is an angsty romp told from dual points of view. If you’re in the mood for something quick and dirty, you’ve found it. Proceed at your own risk.

This was a quick short, hot and steamy read from Kendall Ryan.  Even a little angsty drama was thrown in here!   This was fast paced but to be a novella it had to be.   While I know this was meant to be a quick short read, I really wish it was a full story! It had the making of a seriously good novel.  Or maybe, I am just stingy and I wanted more time with these characters!! I can’t help it!

Shaw lost his wife in a tragic accident.  He is hard working and a seriously sexy smoking man, however he is a little broken.  Chloe has been there since they were kids.  She’s always had an interest in Shaw and when he lost his wife she was there for whatever he needed, whenever he needed it.  That happened to be her body.  Nothing more…. But is it REALLY more than that?   Can Shaw let go of the grief and move on?   Will Chloe finally get fed up and decide it’s not enough even though she cares so deeply for Shaw?

I really loved the story line.   You’ll have to read to find out why exactly the book was titled Wednesday but I think it fits appropriately.

Shera 4

Well when one of my favorite author kicks off a new series, I am ALLL over it!  Sway is the first book in the Landry Family Series.

Barrett Landry is the mayor of Savannah.  He is currently in the run of his life preparing for the race for the governor of the state.  He has his fun, gets what he wants, when he wants it.  He sort of just lives his life going through the motions.  Stressful job, busy life, no time for a steady girlfriend.  Every woman he meets is perfect content with just being with him if only for one night stands and they only see the potential he could bring to his life.

And…. Welp, it would’ve stayed that way for Barrett until he meets Alison Baker.  She knows what she’s heard about him and he proves right when given the chance.  However, Alison allows something into Landry’s life that hasn’t been there for a long time.  FRESH AIR.     She is a single mother just trying to do right by her son.  Do right by herself.  She’s got goals and will never let another man steal her dreams.

Do these two let the walls come down?   Once Barrett can see the other side of life from politics, will he jump ship or hold steady?  Will Alison allow a man into her and her son Huxley’s life especially after what happened in the past?  Who can you trust, when it comes down to it?  Will YOU #VoteLandry?

While I love Barrett, I can’t hide that I am a tad more interested in his brother Lincoln and Ford.  Graham I am sure has a story, but I really want Lincoln and Ford’s.   I can’t WAIT for some more Landry tales to be told by Adriana Locke!

Sway is the first book in the Landry Family series by Adriana Locke.

Barrett Landry is currently the mayor of Savannah and is running for Governor. His life is up for everyone to see and have an opinion on. He is surrounded by people and lonelier than he’s ever been.

Alison Baker is a single mom just trying to do right by her son. She’s had the life in the lime light and it all back fired on her when her husband decided to trade her in for a newer model.

When Alison and Barrett meet by chance at a political event, Barrett is absolutely intrigued by Ms. Baker. While Ali’s body is saying hell yea, her brain and heart know better than to get involved with a man like Barrett.

Can Barrett prove to Alison that he is worthy of her love AND her son’s love?

This book was different than anything Adriana Locke has written before. It was a good book but I felt like we didn’t really get to know Alison and Barrett like we have other characters that Adriana has written. I will definitely be reading more in this series!!!

ABOUT EASY KISSES:

The Boudreaux Series. Sexy. Intriguing. Easy.

Simon Danbury, an internationally sought after motivational speaker, helps women from all walks of life with love, self-esteem, dating and career building skills. Handsome, witty and wealthy, Simon seemingly has everything a man could want.

But appearances can be deceiving.

While Simon may have the answers for millions of women all over the world, when it comes to his own love life, he’s a giant, sexy mess. Divorced, and convinced that he’ll never love again, the very last thing he expects is one Charly Boudreaux.

Charly doesn’t want to be at this seminar in the middle of nowhere, but her sister made her go. She’s the one who has her life together. Great career, amazing family, nice home, and loyal friends. So what if she doesn’t have a man? She doesn’t need one. If she’s learned anything in her almost thirty years, it’s that men are more trouble than they’re worth.

And they have a nasty habit of breaking your heart into a million tiny pieces.

So she’ll sit through all of Simon’s touchy feely crap and go home and get on with her life. Except Simon isn’t really spouting crap, and when he smiles at her, the butterflies are ridiculous.

Never mixing business with pleasure, Simon finds Charly, a bright spot in a universe that’s been dark for too long. But will he be able to resist her?

And why would he want to?

synopsis

From New York Times Best-Selling Author K. Bromberg comes an unforgettable series about lust, love, redemption, and healing…

Our paths should never have crossed.

Colton Donavan was arrogant, exuded that bad boy vibe, and embodied everything I never wanted. And yet all it took was one night, one hallway, and one stolen kiss for me to know I hated him and desired him instantly.

My heart was healing. His soul was damaged. But with one bid, one little boy, and one carnival date, I couldn’t walk away and he wouldn’t let me in.

This is our story. Our fight. Our perfectly imperfect love.

synopsis

What happens when the one person you never expected suddenly happens to be the one you’ll fight the hardest to keep?

Colton stole my heart. He wasn’t supposed to, and I sure as hell didn’t want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist.

Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don’t think I’ll ever be the same. She’s seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she’s still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint, and I am most definitely the sinner.

How is it the one thing neither of us wanted—neither of us anticipated that fateful night—has us fighting so hard to keep?

He steals my breath, stops my heart, and brings me back to life again all in a split second of time. But how can I love a man who won’t let me in? Who continually pushes me away to prevent me from seeing the damaged secrets in his past? My heart has fallen, but patience and forgiveness can only go so far.

How can I desire a woman who unnerves me, defies me, and forces me to see that in the deep, black abyss of my soul there’s someone worthy of her love? A place and person I swore I’d never be again. Her selfless heart and sexy body deserve so much more than I’ll ever be capable of giving her. I know I can’t be what she needs, so why can’t I just let her go?

We are driven by need and fueled with desire, but is that enough for us to crash into love?

synopsisWhen life crashes down around us, how hard are we willing to fight for the one thing we can’t live without, each other?

Life is full of moments.

Big moments.

Little moments.

And none of them are inconsequential.

Every single moment prepares you for that one instance that defines your life. You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything.

Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she’s worth the fight…but how do you fight for someone you know you don’t deserve?

Love is full of ups and downs.

Heart stopping highs.

Soul shattering lows.

And none of them are insignificant.

Love is a racecourse of unexpected twists and turns that must be negotiated. You have to break down walls, learn to trust, and heal from your past in order to win. But sometimes it’s the expected that’s the hardest to hold on to.

Colton has healed and completed me, stolen my heart, and made me realize our love’s not predictable nor perfect—it’s bent. And bent’s okay. But when outside factors put our relationship to the test, what lengths will I have to go to prove to him that he’s worth the fight?

Whoever said love is patient and love is kind, never met the two of us. We know our love is worth it—have acknowledged that we were meant to be—but when our pasts crash into our future, will the repercussions make us stronger or break us apart?

kristy bromberg

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced (releasing 1/11/16)), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat (releasing 11/3/15), and a short story titled UnRaveled.
