For years she has waited for this moment. Years ago he was the one who took her heart and now he is the one who is breaking it. Farrah doesn`t know why he did it but knows she must get revenge for her mother. It is all she has been trained and waited for to happen. Xavier Santini was her everything and seeing him again all the feelings she thought was gone is back full force. Her mission is to get the deets from him to find out why he killed years ago not fall for him . Yet one kiss from him is all it takes to ruin her plans. Xavier is not what they told him to be a murderer is what she thinks in her heart. Farrah knows her family is wrong about him but each day with him is making her confused in how she can complete the plan. The Santinis were her mothers salvation but to her they are the killers. Being with Xavier she is more than just a girl finding her first love but a woman now who wants all he can give to her. Can she survive this rivalry before she looses Xavier for good this time?

Nothing can keep his feelings for Farrah hidden. Xavier has waited to find her and now that he knows where she is he wants what should have been his years ago a life with her. His father always told him to not get near her but because of him he started a war he didn`t know was going to happen. Farrah is his everything and seeing her now years later shows him the love he has for her has grown stronger than ever. He knows that once his secret is out she will hate him forever. As the son of the head Santini family he has to follow orders even the ones that make him a killer. Xavier knows he wasted years in hiding his feelings towards her and now he is ready to make Farrah his forever. Can he settle the past with her for a future together?

Have to say I just loved it when a bad boy tries to redeem himself even as bad as Xavier Santini. In my head when I started reading about him I imagined Justin Theroux that brooding, sexy and dangerous in Xavier Santini. Morgan Black created this hot man for us showing us all his secrets, vulnerability and most of all his feelings towards the forbidden fruit, Farrah. Now here is a girl who at a young age witnessed her mothers death and now a war has started. I loved that Morgan Black wasted no time with Xavier and Farrah getting together and man the sex between them was hotter than ever as years went by. Wasted is more than a book of the Mafia but of a family watching one of their own and a man getting the woman of his dreams after all these years. Loved it.

170 years he has seen many things happen like the rise of fall of so many wars, plagues killing thousands but the one he will always remember is the loss of his lovely, Lydia. For years he has tried to die but once again fate lets him live. Tired of everything happening just when he is ready to die again fate throws him Leah Winters. Unsure what fate is doing right now he is scared of the inevitable when it comes to Leah. His feelings, the memories and most of all the love he feels is all coming back like a tidal wave. Jack knows he shouldn`t question life but knowing Lydia is alive in Leah is not what he expected in a little town like Portland, Maine. Seeing Leah he sees Lydia but it is the person that holds her soul that captures his heart not his early love. He knows once she knows the real Jack Hammond she might run away and knows this time he will never survive loosing her.

Something about Jack Hammond speaks to Leah Winters. He is like a dream she has been waiting for years and now she is unsure what to do with the feelings he invokes in her. She knows if she reveals her secet of the memories she has had people will think she is crazy. Yet when she is with Jack he is bringing out all these feelings she has never had with any other man and it scares her. Jack is not one of the usual guys and being with him she is sharing secrets she has never told no one including her brother, Grady. Love exists but the attraction Leah has with Jack is not the usual love in th e 21st century but one of the old and past where manners and betrothals existed. Can she figure out what is happening before she looses Jack again like before?

This is the first I have read by Jen Printy and have to say I love where this series is going. At first I was kind of weary about Jack Hammond but once you read about his ordeal you will start to soften towards him. I loved that the attraction between him and Leah when they first meet is unique, new and well just truly old fashioned romance blooming. They have a past that is hard to explain but once Jack finds Leah no one can tear them apart. Leah is sweet, naive at times but through everything she takes Jacks story like a pro. Not afraid of him but instead is more than ready to be with him even though there is someone wanting to tear them apart, Death. Have to say for being the first time I read about Jen Printy I cannot wait for the sequel and see what Death has in store for Leah and Jack.

Anne hates being sick but in this case she thanks herself for being sick for it brought in Dr. Jim. Here is a man who is making her think about things like falling in love and finding that special someone in her life. The one guy she thought might have been the one apparently didn`t care she was sick and looked elsewhere for getting tired of waiting for her to make a move with a friend. Anne never believed in serendipity before but after meeting Dr. Jim twice she knows fate wants them together. Everybody tells her she jumps to relationships too fast yet Jim is wreaking havoc in her libido. Something about him calls to her and unsure what to do she lays it all out even knowing that she might not make it if he breaks her heart.

Dr. Jim has dated many women and have had patients flirt with him. Yet when he sees his next patient he cannot feel just as her doctor. Anne somehow knocks the wind out of him and for the first time he wants to really play doctor to a woman like her. She is sexy, funny, beautiful and the most sickest person he has ever seen but it doesn`t stop the attraction towards her. All it took was one flirty remark from her and he is lost in her. Anne is unlike any woman he has known and this scares him in a way that it is exciting to him. He knows he can`t always be her doctor but is determined to be the man for her in every way in her life and forever.

In one word the chemistry between Jim and Anne is HOT. The scene between them in the hospital at first meet was just hillarious in a way that Rae Daniel not only made it funny but have to say sexy as well. This is where we see the fun side of Anne that not many people see and man Jim is one guy to make all her dreams possible. The fiece obsession Jim has towards Anne is like nothing he has experienced before and this was fun to see him deal. Rae Daniel did a beautiful job in showing us not only Anne`s fears of being dumped again but also Jims fear of losing his heart to a woman who can easily break him. Loved it and though it was only 91 pages have to say you will not be left unsatisfied.

One stupid mistake is all it takes to make Abbie Coopers life hell. It has been months since then and she has tried to be good ever since. School and getting to the best college is her main goal right now and has no time for distractions especially someone wanting to reveal her secret. It is called The Avenger and they are wanting to sabotage all she has worked and Abbie is determined to find the person before all her dreams go up in smoke.  Not only does she have to deal with his person but she has to deal with Christian Wheeler. Here is a bad boy that is making her want more than just studies and getting accepted to the best college. He is the first boy to make her wonder about kisses and well love. Abbie knows a boy like him is dangerous and has baggage but man his ex is one she doesnt need in her life right now. Something about Sidney and the Avenger makes her wonder if maybe she always been a target. She has no idea why Sidney is out to get her but knows she is tired of living in fear. One mistake almost ruined her and now Abbie will do anything she can to find that person even if ite means lying to her parents and Christian.

I have to say Glede Browne Kabongo sure knows how to put us on the edge of our seats with so many twists in this book I thought for sure I knew who the Avenger was in it. Have to say I felt for Abbie for all the work she has done and then dealing with the issues with her mom. Yes you should read Swan Deception first but this is all on Abbie Cooper and her story. I loved that no matter how determined she is to be good all it takes is a hot guy like Christian to make her well a little confused lol. Glede Bronwe Kabongo did a great job in this book showing how mature Abbie has become and well how she is dealing with life right now. Can`t wait for more of Abbie.

Deklan has tried to be patient with Harley but how far can he go before he looses control on her and loose the love he just found.

Oh my GOD I am so excited for this sequel by Jerri Williams. I thought the first one gripped me to tears but knowing that Deklan is there all the way just grabs me again. I once again have to applaud  Jerri Williams for creating Deklan just for Harley. These two have a bond that is not only unique and special but one that through pain can be healed. Have to say the emotional twists Jerri Williams takes us in this book was like wow. I thought I cried a lot in the first book but man this one just will wreck you in every way make sure kleenex is nearby for Jerri Williams will not give you a break. Loved it so much between Deklan and Harley dealing with their issues and just wow. Loved it.

How far will life kick you in the ass before you can say Fuck It. This is something that Harley has been asking herself since she was a little girl. Everybody else has the perfect family, perfect mom and dad a place to feel love and cherished. Love, something Harley has never felt in her life. For years she created a double life to stay strong and well to hope. It is a life that she knows because of it people see her as well easy. Everything changes though when she meets Deklan. He is like something out of her treasured books, a hero. Harley has no idea why he is there but cannot shake him off and now she is just tired. For years she has tried to be strong knowing that somewhere over the rainbow there is no pain, hatred, abuse and just maybe the love she has read about in her books. Can she go on knowing that lately hope is on a thin thread?

Deklan has never met a girl like Harley. People say if you want a good time she is the one to go to. Yet something about the kiss they shared tells him something else differently. He shouldn`t even be here at his hometown but when his brother calls he knows it is time. For years he thought the inevitable wouldn`t happen and he wouldn`t loose his mom but life is full of unexpectancies. Seeing Harley though he wonders about her and why she has the same look and pain he used to have years ago. He knows she is hiding something and he is determined to help her in anyway even if it means it`s the last time he sees his mother.

This is the first I have read from Jerri Williams and have to say WOWZA. Right from the beginning Harley blew my mind away for her fears, strength and hope. My heart just cried everytime she went through what she did in the book for no girl should go through it. Gut wrenching is what comes to mind and Deklan is just what she needs right now in her life. The attraction and bond she feels towards him is one for the books. I have to say the villain in this book is just outright abominable. I mean for Harley to take this just shows that this is not your regular damsel in distress but a woman who has to be applauded for what she goes through. I cannot wait for the sequel for Deklan and Harley have a story much more to tell. Loved it.

HisToGuardFinalAbout HIS TO GUARD

Even if you’ve given up, it doesn’t mean your heart ever does.

With her life in danger, Raquel Santana had just begun to blend into the sleepy little town she’d escaped to, to start over. Now her father’s non-negotiable plan to protect her could ruin everything. After adamantly refusing to have someone watch over her, she finally relents.

Only nothing can prepare her for who arrives at her doorstep.

Finding out the beautiful woman Isaiah Romero is assigned to guard is someone he has a sizzling past with—someone he’s never been able to forget—should’ve been a good thing. But when that woman is someone who a)he’d never trust with his heart again and b)completely off limits to him forever now, his loyalties are tested.

When the forbidden becomes His to Guard . . .restraint becomes a torment.

Despite the attraction he’s surprised he still feels for her and the inevitable sexual tension he knows he’ll have to endure, Isaiah is adamant about one thing: even unwritten rules should never be broken—until they are.

Author’s note: Welcome to the Fate series! Each book in the bestselling series is a stand-alone love story following a new couple. There is no need to read the others to keep up with any of the stories. But you’ll enjoy reading each title and seeing familiar faces make appearances.

Get a Peek at HIS TO GUARD

Isaiah wasn’t even all the way down the back door steps when he nearly gave himself whiplash doing a double take. For a moment, he had the insane idea that maybe he’d done so much thinking of Kelli in the last month he was beginning to see her face where it wasn’t. It couldn’t be her. Why would she be here? He peered at her, still not a hundred percent sure it was her. Then she smiled as she said something to his sister Emi, who she was sitting next to. It was definitely her and his heartbeat sped up. He’d never forget that smile. It almost made him smile as well, but he still felt too stunned.

Was it possible she was a friend of Emi’s? Or was Kelli here for him? Other possibilities raced through his mind as he took a couple more steps down the porch into his uncle’s backyard, where family and friends were gathered. She sat there continuing her chat with his sister. Just like everyone else in attendance, she appeared as laid back without a care in the world. Then their eyes met and locked, and her sitting up straight with a jolt said it all. She hadn’t come here for him. Kelli was as stunned to see him here as he was to see her.

“Sai,” Nathan said breaking Isaiah from his thoughts. “I was beginning to wonder where you were.”

Isaiah glanced at him, taking the beer Nathan handed him. Before he could ask about Kelli, his brother smiled big, turning in her direction. “Check this out.” He started in Kelli’s direction. “There’s someone here I want you to meet.”

Isaiah followed him as the wheels in his head spun wildly. The tiniest of hopes that maybe she was there for him were squashed the moment their eyes had met. Kelli still hadn’t taken her eyes off him and Isaiah could feel in his gut this wasn’t going to be a happy reunion. He turned to his brother, who was smiling a bit too big, even as he brought his beer bottle to his lips. That’s when he noticed it. The twinkle in his brother’s eyes and how overdressed he was for Manny’s backyard shindig. It felt almost as if things slowed and they were walking in slow motion as he turned to back to Kelli. She, too, was a bit overdressed for a backyard gathering. Were they on a date?

Overwhelmed with panic, Isaiah gulped. He felt too dazed to come up with even a single excuse why he might need to make a mad dash back into his uncles’ house and back out the front door so he could get the hell out of there. More than anything the pain was back and it was even more brutal now.

Emi, who still sat with Kelli, leaned in and said something, motioning in Isaiah and Nathan’s direction. Kelli’s eyes widened in what appeared to be the same horror Isaiah was feeling. Emi very likely had just let Kelli in on who he was—Nathan’s brother. Obviously, she hadn’t had a clue whose brother she was now dating. Was it possible she might’ve been seeing Nathan before the weekend she spent with Isaiah just last month? Was that why, even after the unexpected amazing connection Isaiah thought they’d had, she’d blown him off like she had?

Nathan rarely brought girls to meet the family, let alone small intimate gatherings like this one where even more extended family would be . . . unless he was finally serious about one. Fuck.

What felt like the longest walk of his life finally came to an end when they reached her. Like a deer caught in headlights, Kelli continued to stare at him, appearing completely stunned.

“Sai,” Nathan said with that same twinkle in his eye. “This is my girl, Kelli Santana.”

Synopsis:

At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most…

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.

Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

How can you write a sex scene when you the author haven`t had sex in well you can`t remember the last time. This is something that romance author Ashley Roberts keeps questioning herself. After 10 novels published she has no idea where her next book will be coming from which is scaring her right now. She`s done everything she can to get her mojo going and well a ski resort is her last option. Everything should have been easy and quiet finally a place for her to get her story out of her head. Problem is that she didn`t expect getting stranded and a fine sex on a stick man like Nick Fazzone awaiting for her. Everything about him shows he is a womanizer but no matter how hard she tries Ashely cannot resist him anymore. It started off as a fling but somehow he got under her skin. She knows in some bizarre way it is because of him that she is finally getting somewhere but how long can she rely on Nick when all she wants is what she always dreamed of having which is love and acceptance.

All Nick Fazzone wants is to get away and relax. The ski resort was supposed to be a place for him to finally get away from all the pushing his mother is doing right now. He knows his mother means well but he is not ready to just settle with one woman when he is still well sowing his wild oats. No woman has gotten under his skin to the point where he wants more than just one night with them. Since meeting romance author Ashley Roberts he is feeling more than just a horny guy in heat. He enjoys her company and something about her calls to him like no other woman has done. It started off as a fling yet along the way he is starting to feel like this is more than a game with her. As a man who is used to just bedding and leaving the girl for the first time in his life he doesn`t want to leave this girl. Is it Ashley and her beautiful, sexy body that is calling him or can it possibly be love in his life for the first tme?

In one word for Nick and Ashey is WOW. Right away from the first chapter I was hooked to the point where the book just flew by. I was like nooo it can`t be done already. I have to say I love this series only wish I got a hold of the first one in this series. It can definitely be read alone but man Nick is one hot Italian Stallion and you so need a cold glass of water to cool down. I felt for Ashley Roberts for even I couldn`t resist this guy. At first he did come of kind of cocky yet once you read what he`s dealing with from his mother and family well you kind of feel sorry for him and all the pressure. The passion between them is hot and the love between them in some ways was funny, sweet and fascinating how they complete one another without realizing it themselves.This is one of those books you don`t want to pass up Magda Alexander have to say shined in this story cannot wait for Raphaels story. Loved it.
