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.

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.
