Easy with You

synopsis

Nothing has ever come easy for Lila Bailey. She’s fought for every good thing in her life during every day of her thirty-one years. Aside from that one night with an impossible to deny stranger a year ago, Lila is the epitome of responsible.

Steadfast. Strong.

She’s pulled herself out of the train wreck of her childhood, proud to be a professor at Tulane University and laying down roots in a city she’s grown to love. But when some of her female students are viciously murdered, Lila’s shaken to the core and unsure of whom she can trust in New Orleans. When the police detective assigned to the murder case comes to investigate, she’s even more surprised to find herself staring into the eyes of the man that made her toes curl last year.

In an attempt to move on from the tragic loss of his wife, Asher Smith moved his daughter and himself to a new city, ready for a fresh start. A damn fine police lieutenant, but new to the New Orleans force, Asher has a lot to prove to his colleagues and himself.

With a murderer terrorizing the Tulane University campus, Asher finds himself toe-to-toe with the one woman that haunts his dreams. His hands, his lips, his body know her as intimately as he’s ever known anyone. As he learns her mind and heart as well, Asher wants nothing more than to keep her safe, in his bed, and in his and his daughter’s lives for the long haul.

But when Lila becomes the target, can Asher save her in time, or will he lose another woman he loves?

*Blog Tour and Review* A Brutal Betrayal by DC Renee

ABrutalBetrayal
10728805_1490008501284486_248470151_nSynopsis4
Past. Everyone has one. It shapes the person they become. It determines the present. It even contributes to the future. And sometimes, people are thrown together in spite of it.
It was no secret that Megan Verona was raped. It crippled her being, turning her from a vibrant young woman to someone who feared intimacy. After years of struggling, she decided to seek help with a therapist, Declan Connors, in hopes of being able to finally have a relationship. Declan wanted to help Megan; he wanted to help everyone who sought his aid, but she was different. She consumed his thoughts until he could no longer deny his feelings. He hadn’t expected to fall for her and fall hard, but he did. It was a wonder when she returned some of his sentiment. But, like everyone, Declan also has a past, one riddled with pain and anguish, one he hadn’t fully dealt with.
If helping Megan brought out his own shadows, what did loving her do? How do both their pasts play a role in their future? Most importantly, can they conquer the past that threw them together?

Review

Shera’s review 4 of 5 Stars

Seven years ago Megan was raped when out with a friend at a bar trying out their fake ID’s.   A devastating event that left her broken in so many ways as it would anyone who experiences something so brutal and wrong.   Now today, she is still scared of anyone’s touch and deathly afraid of intimacy of any kind down to even hand shaking has left her living life alone ever since that day.  She has managed to keep living her life, but not the way she wants to and knows she should.  She wants what everyone else has….A Relationship.

Declan Connors is a 25 year old therapist which an extremely rocky past.  He normally keeps his practice limited to Vets and other issues and has never had experience with a rape victim.  His friend and former therapist Chuck that helped Declan with PTSD refers Megan to Delcan because she feels as if she can’t connect with her current therapist, but really she hasn’t had success with any of them.  He feels like Declan may be able to relate to her more.

Declan is only a few years older than Megan and soon as she walks into his practice he is so taken back by her beauty. She may be broken, but yet very beautiful inside and out.   As their therapy sessions take place, Declan immediately feels more than that therapist-patient connection.  He tries so hard to be professional and keep it that way.  But hey he is a man, what do you expect?  The temptation is too big, and when he sees how she responds to his version of personal therapy andhe can’t turn back.    He will do anything and everything to help Megan move on from her past.

Megan of course starts to open up, feelings develop but then memories start returning for both her and Declan.  Not everything is the way it always seems.  When you have two people that both have experienced trauma in their lives, things tend to be blocked out, forgotten and put so deep in the back of their minds that it’s almost like it never happened.  But they did…..  When the truth comes out who will end up more broken and hurt?

I really did enjoy this book.  I seriously love Declan to pieces.  The story was certainly emotional as dealing with two heavy issues such as PTSD of someone previously in the military as well as rape.  But it was much more than that, the whole entire story, the connection just all came together for me.   Do I think their connection was a little too rushed, maybe just a little but I overlooked it because I just loved both the characters and the way the story flowed.   You will be kept wondering what was really behind it all and you definitely have OMG moments in this one!  I give this a 4 out of 5 rating and recommend it as a worthy read!

About WHEN YOU’RE READY:

Years after suffering the tragic loss of her husband, Ethan, which left her alone to raise their young daughter, Clare Murray still holds the last letter he wrote with the words “When You’re Ready” written in his familiar messy handwriting, unable to break its weathered seal. Ready for what? He was her entire world, and Clare had accepted a life without him, without love. Until years later, fate brings her to an emergency room, and face to face with a stormy-eyed doctor intent on changing her mind.

Son of a billionaire, Logan Matthews has spent his life trying to make his absentee father proud. Without a family to depend on, all he’s ever wanted is a place to call home. After a failed marriage, Logan believes he’s unworthy of love…until he meets a woman who awakens his spirit and transforms his entire life in an instant.

But how far are Clare and Logan willing to go for love? Can his love mend the pieces of her grieving heart?

When their love is tested, is Clare ready to put her whole heart on the line again? Can Logan learn the true meaning of love, even if it means sacrificing his own happiness? When a second chance at love is given, Clare and Logan learn you are never truly ready until you’re ready to risk it all.

About NEVER BEEN READY:

Leah Morgan was done with men. After barely surviving a horrendous childhood, and a boyfriend who bailed when things got rough, Leah had given up on love. Then she met him, Hollywood’s new golden boy who suddenly had eyes only for her. She tried to convince herself that one night couldn’t hurt, but after six months, the memories of his mesmerizing gaze and searing touch still invaded her every thought.

Declan James had just one rule when it came to women. Keep it simple, and never linger. That all changed the moment he met Leah. Even across a crowded bar, he could tell she was different. Sweet, with just the right amount of sass, she made him break his golden rule and now he couldn’t walk away.

When casual becomes anything but, and emotions run deep, will Leah and Declan fight their fears, or let old insecurities tear them apart? When Declan’s past comes roaring back in a way neither of them could have expected, will they stand united or be torn apart by the challenges that lie ahead?

It was only supposed to be one night, but only forever will do.

About READY FOR YOU:

A second chance at first love.

Eight years ago, Garrett Finnegan’s world shattered the day Mia vanished from his life. He’s been struggling to pick up the pieces ever since. Haunted by memories and ghosts of the past, he chooses a solitary existence rather than risk his heart again.

When her new life is turned upside down, she finds herself returning to her roots and the hometown she left behind. Maybe now she can find a way to heal from the devastating mistakes of her past.

When a chance encounter brings these former lovers together, passion reignites in a way neither is prepared for. Can Garrett move beyond his anger and find a way to forgive? Will Mia’s insecurities and fears cause her to once again flee the life she’s destined to live?

Garrett and Mia will soon discover that they must journey into the past to find their way home.
