Trust Me (Rivers Edge Book 1)

Fight Me (Rivers Edge Book 2)

 

reviewReview by Kristin Marvin

Expect Me is the third book in the Rivers Edge series but can be read as a standalone.

Expect Me is Travis’s book. Travis, as we know is Avery’s (Trust Me) brother. While at his sister’s wedding, Travis meets Josselyn McCray, a waitress at the wedding. While he thinks he’s being coy, everyone notices that Travis can’t keep his eyes off Josseyln, including Josseyln herself. Josseyln ends up back at Travis’s apartment for one night of unadulterated passion. She flees before the morning light. Travis is left to wonder what happened to the woman that captured his heart that night.

“Time to face the man who changed my life forever…”

Two months later, Josseyln shows up on his door step and drops a bomb he never saw coming. He’s going to be a daddy to an essentially complete stranger’s baby!

Travis is the youngest of the four Steven’s boys. He works hard, side by side with his father at the family construction company. He is a protective older brother to little sister Avery, and the proverbial punching bag for his older brothers. He’s not the confirmed bachelor, one night stand type of guy that his brothers or friends are/used to be. Travis works hard and wants the same loving relationship his sister has.

“I want to be there for you and our baby.”

Travis and Josselyn are, for all intents and purposes, strangers. They know each other’s bodies but that is all. Travis and Josseyln agree to avoid the undeniable attraction, and try to become friends first, for the sake of their unborn baby.

Travis wants nothing more than to provide for this woman and their child and will go to the end of the world to do so. While getting to know each other, Travis is also working on physically providing a home for his growing family, this means more time apart from Josseyln. She sees this, through hormonal eyes, that Travis is regretting his choice.

Can Travis prove to Josseyln that nothing matters more to him than her and their baby? Can they overcome the odds and become friends, lovers, and parents to this child?

We do see past couples throughout the book as well as Travis’s all-knowing mom who’s wisdom is still flowing freely!

Another steamy, small town romance from Lacey Black! I absolutely loved this book! I loved watching Joss and Travis grow together as well as individually throughout the book!!

5 stars!

So, holy Frigging WOW!   I thought I had a grip on what the hell was going on in the Blyss world, but nope, JC pimp slapped me with Blyssful Lies – BANG, BAM, in YOUR Face Shera, lol.  Blyssful Lies just blew my little perfect bubble world apart!  (Of Course, Travis remains in my bubble)

I seriously thought I hated Nick, like he was just not redeemable in my eyes at all.  But then this sadistic bastard has a sweet and loving side?  It is almost like he is tormented.   So I willingly put myself into the Stockholm Syndrome category, because now I myself am sure I have it.

Then we have my man Travis. HOT as hell Travis.   I am still very much in love with Travis.  In Blyss we got a hint that Travis was infact a good guy.  He had feelings, wants…. In Blyssful Lies we get full blown exposure to everything that makes Travis and I didn’t think I could love him more than I did in Blyss, boy I was so very wrong.

Julianna is left confused, conflicted and tormented.  She doesn’t know which way is up anymore, but one thing she does realize, is she has feelings for Travis, or does she?  Memory loss is a true bitch and when things start coming back what is going to happen??

“What we have is more profound than pure bliss, and believe me when I tell you I never want to let you go.” 

He might not want to let her go, but will Julianna refused to be held on to?

JC gives you books that will make you laugh, cry, want to crawl in a hole and hide, then warm your heart right up, all packaged up into one nifty little present.   There are a ton of WTF just happened moments that will have you swiping your reader faster then it will actually move.   I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails in this one!  The ending, oh HOLY ENDING!   I can NOT wait for the next book.  I NEED to know what happens, like yesterday!     5 SMOKIN Stars!  Bring me MORE J.C!

Blyss BT Banner

 

Blyss_FrontCover2_WebSynopsis4
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF SUCH A GENRE—THE LIGHTER SIDE OF DARK?
Everyone will have their own definition of “Dark” vs. “Contemporary”, and perhaps there is a mixture of the two. I like to call this the “Grey” genre.
However, there is one thing for certain; you haven’t ever read this type of story before. Blyss is an original, one of a kind storyline in theme, circumstance, and character action.
You will definitely need all three books in order to put together the pieces of this puzzle, but isn’t that what makes reading fun? Book one sets the stage while you begin to embrace the thrill, the suspense, and the anticipation. There is a romance story amongst all the turmoil…you will just have to hang on for the ride.

*~*~*~*

CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE (with dark moments)

Blyss is something the world has been trying to create since the beginning of time, the ultimate aphrodisiac. A drug that’s used against women with one single purpose in mind….

Julianna Oakley has just finished up her junior year at college and flies home to spend her last free summer with her father on their prestigious Georgia estate. Julianna isn’t your typical spoiled, rich girl, prima donna. She’s down to earth and has an independent streak a mile wide, insisting she make her own way in this world.

Nick has been setting the stage for a long time, and sparks fly when their separate worlds collide. She is Nicks’ ultimate obsession, and he will stop at nothing to own her.
When Travis, Nick’s right hand man, lays his eyes on the prize all hell is about to break loose.

Travis should know Nick is playing for keeps, and while Julianna is fighting for her freedom, a lifetime full of secrets and twisted perceptions slowly unravel as Julianna gets caught in the fray.

Warning:
** Mature Audiences Only** This book is intended for mature audiences only (18+) and contains sensitive subjects, explicit descriptions of sex, drugs, dirty talk, strong language, and violence.

Review

Reviewed by Shera 4 of 5 Stars!

First let me say, this was a fanfreakingtastic book!  I would consider this book on the darker romance side, less on the contemporary romance side and I LOVE DARK!  Yea, call me cray cray but I get sucked into a dark book like a lint ball into a hoover!  There is just no escaping!   This story revolves around a kidnapping and being forced in to the world of a new drug called Blyss.   It’s supposed to be the end all be all of aphrodisiacs, given to women for one reason only.    I am sure you can guess what that is.

Poor Julianne was kidnapped and taken away from everyone she loves.  She comes from a powerful family and when a business deal goes the wrong way, Julianne is caught right up in it.   Forced into a world she doesn’t know.   She’s feisty, driven and she won’t go down without swinging that’s for sure.   Her attitude might get in her trouble, or it may just save her life.

“I am Julianne Oakley and I have not begun to fight”

Nick who is the “Boss” has been sorta obsessed with Julianne for years, ok scratch that has really obsessed.  One thing is for sure he totally underestimated her resilience.   He is selfish, egoistical asswad with his own form of twisted (I love twisted).   Then you have Travis, Nick’s partner who is the “Trainer”.  He seems the complete opposite of Nick.  He is kind and caring to Julianne.  Gorgeous, charming, HOT Alpha Male and he seems as if he cares of Julianne, but does he really?  Is that the real Travis?

You really should hate both Nick and Travis, but you can’t.  It’s like your mind is saying WTF why do I like either of these guys, but you will and you won’t be able to stop it so don’t bother trying!
Can Julianne hold on to her sanity long enough to stay alive? Can she help but not fall for one of these boys?

This book has some very hot scenes, but some having you gripping your kindle so hard because they are gut wrenching jaw dropping hold on tight scenes.   Blyss to me is the ultimate date rape drug, which makes you love and hate what is going on.

I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds and look forward to the next book in the series!   4 Stars!
