Chloe Reed and Nick Grayson couldn’t have more different lives. Where Chloe had a bleak future and was trying to deal with a loss that had left a hole in her heart, Nick was a happy-go-lucky guy, leading a carefree life with a path set.
Until one fateful night, they met and everything changed. The night that gave Chloe hope for the future, left Nick scarred for life. Was their meeting a one-off tryst or was their story just beginning?
An incredible story of taking a chance on someone and saving them. I could call this a story of fate. It makes you feel like there is always a reason for certain things to happen and for certain paths to cross. Chloe is facing a family loss, things spiral out of control and on one fateful night Nick finds her and brings her back to reality. But then when she wants to find her knight in shining armor he is no where to be found. Nick is facing an unexpected devestation and ends up going a different direction. This might be cliche’ but they run into each other one night a couple years later. They reconnect briefly only to be redirected once again. There is some push and pull with the story but it is written beautifully. Both characters are very well defined and you connect with their feelings and thoughts in a way that grabs you by the heart and will bring tears to your eyes if you are not careful. This is a novella, but it could have been so much more. The good news…there is another full length novel coming out soon! I am so excited! Getting this glimpse of Chloe and Nick will be on my mind for a long time to come. I can’t wait to continue their story!
Jett Vaughn has one thing on his mind these days – Presley Hart. He will do anything it takes to make her his. At least, he thinks he will.
Presley Hart wants one thing in life – a man who will make her his number one. After being married to a man who never put her first, she swore she’d never settle for second best again. At least, she thought she wouldn’t.
When Jett’s life comes crashing down around him, his flaws are laid bare for all to see. Presley stands by her man but there’s only so much she can do to help him. She loves him and wants to be with him but she has her limits and Jett’s about to reach them.
In the midst of hurt, loss and destruction, can love win out? Can a man who is struggling to find his way, show the woman he loves just how much he wants her to be the one? Or is there only so much a heart can take before enough’s enough?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
EEEP. I finished book 1 and jumped right into book 2. Jett and Presley are a great couple to read….yes you wanna kick their butts every now and again buuuut a fun couple none the less.
The book starts right where the novella stops. We see Jett and Presley dealing with the news about her marriage to another less then famous rocker Lennon. Jett is still uber caveman, alpha over his new woman but he is ok with what she hid from him. Presley is all in with Jett. She never thought she would agree to date another rocker but Jett is NOT Lennon.
This book our couples faces A LOT of drama We see them doing a good job coping, fighting, making up and then trying to figure out the next step. I really liked Presley because she put Jett in his place. She was honest with his bandmates and manager Tom. She was only there for Jett. She could care about anything else. Her job was him and how to help him along. She was always telling Jett what he didnt want to hear and sometimes this caused friction BUT she was never untrue to her character. Jett is a romantic at heart but at times his fear of loss made him do things that made us and Presley sad. However, true to form out rocker would come back and grovel like the best of them!! LOL
The band mates are awesome guys. I cant wait to read West’s story but I really want to know more about Van. What the heck is up with him and his anger with Jett????
USA Today Bestselling Author Nina Levine is an Aussie author who writes alphas with a side of dirty and sassy women who don’t hand their hearts over easily.

You know what they say about wishing for the impossible.
My name is Talia Perizkova, and time is usually my best friend. It’s been good to me in the months since I left the man who nearly killed me, and I’ve returned the favor by working hard at Stone Global Corp, even getting promoted to lead one of SGC’s key expansion projects.
There’s only one mar on that record. The night I told time to kiss my ass, during a business trip to Vegas with my bosses–yes, my bosses–and experienced a night for the record books with them both. But what happened in the City of Sin refuses to stay there for any of us, and time has joined forces with his pal, karma, to exact payback where it most matters. In my heart.
Fletcher Ford. Drake Newland. They’re two of the business world’s sexiest, most sought-after bachelors, and I’ve fallen for them both. Their passion is everything I crave, their protection is everything I need–and their love is everything my orthodox family will never let me accept.
The solution, according to them, is simple. One man steps down, so at least two of us are happy.
I could find a way…
But sacrifices are rarely simple, and one plus one doesn’t always equal happily-ever-after. That means all three of us have some huge, hard decisions to make. Take a chance on this rare love we’ve been given…or give in to fear, and lose each other forever?
OMG!! HAWT HAWT HAWT!! I am a giant fan of this series and these authors. I loved Kil and Claire’s stories but have loved the additional side characters stories as well. When we got a glimpse of these three in then Vegas Anthology, I was fanning myself!! WOWZERS and yummy!!
Drake, Tolly and Fletcher are a combustible MFM trio. Drake and Fletchers are “brothers from another mother” and they both meet and set their sights on Natalia AKA Tolly. She is the perfect woman for them. We see how they “get together” in the Vegas anthology but now it has a couple weeks after the fact and Tolly is freaking out. I mean these guys are EVERY WOMAN’S DREAM so why would they want her?? Plain and simple frump girl? I loved how they went to force a confrontation out of Tolly…I was cracking up. These guys were soooo outta place and super uncomfortable but the will endure anything for their future and that is what Tolly is…their future!!
Tolly loves these guys but her family is not having it. Her insecurities will not let her be happy and then neither will their other one night stands…they remind Tolly of what she isn’t and what they are…BEAUTIFUL, ELEGANT and PERFECT. Hey thanks Tolly’s ex Gavin for the mind games! You’re a peach!!
When the trio finally gives it a 110% all in, someone steps forward to shatter the HEA for the group. The remaining 2 are left lost and confused. Will they ever get back to the happy they had or was it all an illusion?
I wanted to kick Tolly’s butt in the beginning because she was soooooooooo unsure of herself but then when I saw her growth from the love of her men …at the gala…. yeah that showdown was awesome but the final show down at the end of the book had my heart so happy.
I loved the guys and just like Tolly I loved them both for different reasons. They both bring love and warmth to her but they also provided her with some much more.

A bit about me…
I’ve been hooked on books since I was a kid but it got worse in my twenties, when I discovered romances–the hotter, the better. Growing up in Southern California, with lots of surfer manliness surrounded me, was certainly a good boost for reading about delicious alpha guys and the women who adore them. When I learned I had a knack for telling these stories too, I guess you could say I was doomed–though my path toward romance novelist took a few detours via a concert-reviewing gig for my college newspaper (free show tickets…backstage passes…that was a no-brainer), artist interviews for a Beverly Hills dance music mag, personal assistant work for a record producer, dance club disc jockey, and a lot of fun in the hospitality industry.
These days, I still live in California, and have found an amazing alpha guy of my own who was brave enough to marry me. We live on a street that looks like Brigadoon, with our beautiful daughter. I have the best life ever, and never forget to thank the Big Guy Upstairs for it, either.
Victoria Blue lives in her own portion of the galaxy known as Southern California. There she finds the love and life sustaining power of one amazing sun, two unique and awe inspiring planets and three indifferent, yet comforting moons. Life is fantastic and challenging and everyday brings new adventures to be discovered. She looks forward to seeing what’s next!

SUMMER’S BAY by A.C. BEXTOR
For years, Ryleigh has ignored her heart’s desire and its ache for the man she’s always wanted. Since coming home after years of being away, she discovers her love for him hasn’t changed. The only problem is she’s no longer the girl she once was.
BLIND FAITH by TERESA GABELMAN
Committing her life to teaching the blind, Julie Daniels doesn’t expect cowboy Clay Marshall to turn to her for help. As their worlds collide, Clay and Julie discover they have to rely on blind faith to find their own slice of happiness.
KISS, INTERRUPTED by S.R. GREY
Shy girl Brooks Happ wants nothing more than for her first kiss to come from someone who’s her complete opposite, Confident Sebastian Kain fits the bill. Problem is, the world won’t cooperate. Time and time again, Brooks’s first kiss is interrupted. A cute, funny romantic comedy sure to make you laugh.
HER KIND OF CRAZY by NINA LEVINE
Juliette Taylor never saw Tanner Brady coming and as much as she swears he’s all kinds of wrong for her and that she wants nothing to do with him, he’s out to show her otherwise.
Never in a million years did she think a laid-back tattoo artist could be the man for her, but he’s determined to show her that she’s his kind of crazy.
I purchased this book one because it has two authors I enjoy reading, Teresa Gableman and Nina Levine, plus it is for a good cause. I was also introduced to two more authors I have never read before, A.C. Baxtor and SR Grey. I enjoyed and devoured all four small town short stories.
I loved the country story of Teresa Gableman Blind Faith. Julie was brought in to help Clay’s brother Bo learn to deal with his blindness. This is a great love story of quite shy girl having a crush on the jock in high school only to meet up years later. The connection between Clay and Julie was awesome. Bo put up a heck of a fight but the shy quiet school girl was stronger than Clay thought. I would love to hear more about Bo and Juile’s sister.
Her Kind of Crazy by Nina Levine was wonderful. Juliette knows what she wants in life she has a 10 year plan and nothing will distract her. Until she stumbles into Tanner Brady (darn high heels) and he just may have put a kink in her plan. Loved the connection between Juliette and her sister, she is always there to make Juliette stop and think about things. The relationship between her and Ana was great she was more than an employer she was a friend. No matter how professional Juliette tried to be Ana treated her more like a BFF. Juliette was determined not to let anything derail her from her 10 year plan especially a hot “bad boy” with tattoos. However, Tanner was determined to change that. I so hope we get more of Tanner in the future.
Summer’s Bay by A.C. Bextor was a first for me by this author. Ryleigh is set to marry her high school sweetheart who happens to be the brother of her first crush and man that broke her heart. You can see the disconnect the entire time between Ryleigh and her fiancé, Myles, and the connection that is between Ryleigh and Chase. I wanted to shake Ryleigh so many times to just admit what she really wanted not what she thought she had to do.
SR Grey’s Kiss, Interrupted was the first kiss gone wrong and funny. Brooks was the shy girl all her life and had never been kissed. She found the perfect guy she wanted her first kiss to be with. It happens to be another counselor at the camp, Sebastian. Only problem is night after night something happens and their kiss gets derailed. The antics of the kids, especially one little boy, in the camp were great.
If you have never read any of these authors this is a great way to be introduced to them. All the stories were good and they were quick reads. Plus it is for a good cause.
He knows everything. She has all the damn answers.
I’ve always been a free spirit. It’s my nature. I crave control, but with her it’s far more.
He’s a power hungry climber. Her wealth could buy and sell me.
It’s too much pressure being the center of anyone’s focus. She underestimates my desire for her, my need to please just her.
When he’s vulnerable, it’s hard to deny him. Her crooked smile cripples me.
He hides his demons, but I’m no fool. She thinks not committing to anyone makes her more honest. She’s wrong.
A man like him deserves someone who can offer that kind of love. She promises nothing, yet I feel like a king when she says my name.
I never let anyone possess me like he did. Not before. Not after. My greatest regret was compromising. I should have never held back.
Still, when we’re apart I’m not myself. I miss the days when she was just down the hall.
He’s better off without me, and it hurts. The ugly truth is I need her more than she needs me.
Our relationship was born out of lust and curiosity. The lies we told ourselves killed it.
Together, we found Nirvana. We learned it was all a mirage.
I ruined him. I broke her heart.
I keep coming back. I can’t let her go.

Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen cab is not a normal way to meet someone. Damn it if that tattoo-covered would-be felon isn’t everywhere now, and lighting everything on fire under her skirt.
His name is Hudson Fenn, and he’s frustratingly impossible to pin down. He works as a bike messenger, but has the manners of a prince—along with a strange tendency toward breaking and entering. As much as Verity knows he’s not her type, and likely to land her in jail, she can’t help but find her truest self when they’re together.
Can she be brave enough to give Hudson a real chance? Will he be bold enough to reveal the man beneath the ink, or will his secrecy doom their connection? Also, WTF is the deal with Verity’s boss? No less than thirteen of your favorite romance writers have teamed up to tell this sexy, wacky, snort-inducing tale. With them you’ll visit the world’s most irritating office, a VIP room of questionable cleanliness, and the fanciest apartment a bike messenger has ever inhabited, but you’ll still never see this ending coming.
OH HELL YES! This story is hilarious, twisted, witty, insane, with lots of HOT and NOT!
Within the first few chapters I was hooked. It has everything! Verity is a girl trying to make it in the big city when her photography career didn’t quite work out. She takes a taxi home after work but shares it with this incredibly hot tatooed guy…we later find out his name is Hudson. They get caught in traffic, the cab driver and another driver get out of the vehicle and are arguing all crazy like so Hudson decides he will take the cab and drive Verity and himself to their destination. Verity is going all crazy about him stealing the cab and making comments about her vagina to make him not want to rape her. HE DOES NOT! He is a gentleman and pays for the cab. It was at this point (very early in the book) that I knew I was in trouble because there is no way I was putting this book down until the end. Sadly this is what happened. I lost a night of sleep before I knew it and was zombified the next day. TOTALLY WORTH IT! This is just the start. Their relationship has them breaking all the rules. There are secrets. Everyone has a secret! There are break-ins, sex, hilarious banter and….wait for it…..lifesize sex doll issues!
“She’d fix it. Mission: Bring Back Pussyfeathers was a go.”
“A little while later , after nearly being drilled into Mrs. Beatman’s apartment one story below , Verity really wanted to be that girl who could say something sexy. But she wasn’t that girl. “There’s a twenty on the dresser for you.” Not even close to being that girl. Hudson shifted to look her in the face. “Excuse me?” Verity giggled. At least she’d been able to throw him off balance. That was a nice change of pace. He laid on top of her while they caught their breath.”
“This mafia-style burial of a sex doll would no doubt be a tale she and Hudson told while tits deep in the hot tub at an Ocala retirement park 40 years from now. It had been just a little criminal and a whole lot perfect.”
Absolutely insane! Definately a page turner. Go ahead. Pick this up. You won’t be disappointed.
But I’ve made some bad mistakes, made the wrong choices.
Who hasn’t? But the consequences are tearing us apart.
I love two people.
I love them differently.
The world tells me I have to choose. Why? Why do I have to choose?
Loving hurts. Dancing heals.
Love makes you soar, makes you fly and sets you free—and then it lets you freefall until you’re smashed and bleeding on the ground. Ultimately, love is the worst thing that can happen to a human being.
Im my opinion.
I love two people.
I love them differently.
One is a man.
One is a woman.
And they are brother and sister.
**** A stand alone novel in the best-selling Rhythm Series. ****
Jane is a writer of contemporary romance fiction, known for thoughtful stories, often touching on difficult subjects: disability (DANGEROUS TO KNOW & LOVE, SLAVE TO THE RHYTHM); mental illness (THE EDUCATION OF CAROLINE, SEMPER FI); life after prison (LIFERS); dyslexia (THE TRAVELING MAN, THE TRAVELING WOMAN).
She is also a campaigner for former military personnel to receive the support they need on leaving the services. She wrote the well-received play LATER, AFTER with former veteran Mike Speirs. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk1CyB8c0xA )
After the loss of his closest friend, and with a scheduled deployment closing in, the last thing Army Ranger Colin Dunham wants is to start any new relationship. But Joey, with her gorgeous eyes and blunt honesty, grabs Colin’s attention from the moment he catches her watching him from across the bar. He knows one night is all they can have. This mysteriously addictive girl ends up taking over every one of his dreams and nightmares, though, crossing the line of another night he’d rather forget.
As dreams become reality, Colin steps in to protect Joey from a threat he never imagined. And when tables turn, it’s Joey who must protect him.
Circumstances are never what they seem.
Can just one night lead them to the other side of heartache?
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
I am enjoying Rebecca Brooke writing style. Yes, she draws you into the story makes everything so real like you are their fighting their battles with them and wanting to shake the ever-loving crap out of some of them at times. I was laughing at times, cried others, my heart sunk and at times it found its way to my throat. The drama and battles on the battlefield and at home were so real and frustrating at times.
Colin is a Ranger in the Army. It’s what he is and will always be. He knows nothing else and wants to be nothing else. He watched his best friend die doing what they loved and now he is left to deal with everything on his own knowing if he talks to anyone about the nightmares his career will be over. One night he meet a woman whit beautiful blue eyes but knowing he will be leaving on tour he walks away because making her wait 3 months before seeing her again is not fair, until he sees her at the camp when he arrives.
Joey is a pilot for the Army. She loves what she does and has the spirit to go with it. She is tired of putting her heart out there only to have guys walk away when they find out her job. Until she meets Colin they spend time together and then the unthinkable happens and their black hawk does down now they have to fight for what they want to get back to their jobs and each other. Is it possible or will it be too much.
The support system they have when they are dealing with everything is amazing. I love Daniele, tanner and Greg as much as Colin and Joey. When Colin hits rock bottom and boy does he hit rock bottom in a big way, who will be there to help him climb to the top again. He has pushed everyone away not only Joey but Danielle, Greg and Tanner. Can he overcome the destruction in his path or will he prevail and who will be left standing by his side?
I am a sucker for the real life tell it like it is military book. Joey is a strong tell it as she sees it kind of woman. I absolutely loved watching Joey and Colin’s friendship grow and my heart broke for Joey each time Colin pushed her away. The way all of them came together more as a family than friends showed the true life of a military family. Great story line, excellent drama, and I need more. I just found our Rebecca has a cook about Daniele, Nate and Tanner story you better believe I will be checking that out.
Rebecca a New Jersey native has had a passion for reading all of her life. No matter the genre, turning her dreams into stories for her readers to treasure is more than she could ask for. She lives with her family wishing every day could be spent in the summer sun.
