Excerpt

I should tell Quinn and Clay that he’s here. But one look at him and it’s like the last ten years have never passed and I’m back at the bonfire, the awkward high schooler uncomfortable in her own skin. Marching away from him in the woods. It was the last time I saw him. How is it possible that he can affect me this much after all this time?
He hasn’t noticed me, not with his head bowed, so I quickly turn around and focus on Pastor John as he finishes up his prayer. Him being here means nothing. I should be happy that I remember the pain from that night so well, it will make keeping my walls up around him so much easier.
“On behalf of the Davis family, I want to thank everyone for coming today. At this time, the family has asked for some time alone as they say their good-byes. They wanted me to remind everyone that the PieHole will be opening up for a few hours tonight starting at five for anyone that wishes to join them.”
I keep my arm around Quinn, not looking back to where I saw Maverick. I can hear the church slowly emptying and I feel a frown pull at my lips. I had hoped that when everyone started to leave that he would have come up front to be with his family, but so far, the pew we’re in is still empty save for the three of us. We sit and wait for everyone to leave, something that Clay had asked Pastor John to make arrangements for in place of the customary recessional, knowing that no one in this town would really mean a word of it anyway. Plus, I know Quinn is having a hard time. Regardless of the fact that she wasn’t the closest with her father, she was really counting on this—Maverick home. She’s still shaking in my arms, but when I look over at Clay I realize his silence isn’t because of the heaviness of Buford’s death, but instead anger over his brother’s absence that has started to build to a boil. I fear that he’s seconds away from tipping over the edge.
I stand when Clay and Quinn do, but hang back at the edge of the row we had been sitting in as they meet Pastor John and gather their father’s ashes. I can’t wait to get out of these heels. If it would have been acceptable to wear my boots, I would have, but Quinn would have killed me. As it is, I feel like I can’t take a deep breath with how tight my dress is against my chest. I never wear tight shirts. I haven’t since my boobs became beasts of their own right. I’m too busy fiddling with the straps of my dress, trying desperately to get some of the pressure against my chest to ease up so I could take a deep breath, when I heard Quinn gasp.
“Mav!” Next thing I know she’s running past where I’m standing, her black hair streaming in the air behind her as she speeds forward right into her brother’s arms. Clay moves to stand next to me and I look up to meet his green eyes, the questions he isn’t vocalizing dancing in their emerald depths. He’s not stupid and I’m doing a crappy job at hiding the memories haunting me right now. He gives me a small smile, shifting his hold on the urn to wrap his free arm around me and pulls me into a strong hold.
“You’re shakin’,” he says against my temple and I just nod.
“I’m good, Clay. Go see your brother.”
“I’m fine right where I am, sugar.”
I keep my eyes to the ground, focusing on his worn boots instead of looking up, hating myself for making this moment about me when I should be focused on them. Like it or not, I can’t fight the feelings that being near him bring me. I’m that stupid, naive sixteen-year-old all over again. “Let’s get out of here,” he says after a few silent seconds. I look up and give him a smile, hoping that it looks a hell of a lot braver than I feel. Inside I feel like I might puke.
 “You think I could have a second with my family?”
My head shoots up at the coldness I hadn’t anticipated in Maverick’s voice. He’s not focused on me, though, instead looking at his brother with a hard expression and one brow raised upward.
“Mav!” Quinn gasps and he moves his attention from his brother to her.
“Sorry, Quinn, but I’m thinkin’ that Clay’s lady friend would understand that this should be a moment for our family and give us time alone.”
“I’ll just—”
“Don’t you dare finish that sentence, sugar,” Clay all but spits through clenched teeth and drops his arm to take a step forward. “You’ve got something to say, Mav, then say it.”
“Nothing to say, Clayton, I just think it would be nice for your girlfriend to give us some space.”
“My girlfriend,” he parrots sarcastically, his deep voice vibrating in anger.
“Mav.” Quinn attempts to butt in, but stops when Maverick leaves her side and turns to stalk out of the church. I should find it comical that he obviously didn’t recognize me, or hell, maybe he did and he’s just picking up where he left off ten years ago in the middle of the dark woods. I take a deep breath. “It’s okay. He’s right. Y’all need some time as a family. I’ll head over to the PieHole and start settin’ up for tonight.”
Quinn brushes a tear from her cheek and just shakes her head. I look at Clay to see him staring in the direction that his brother just left.
“You’re family,” he finally says, not looking in my direction.
 “Clay, really, it’s okay. It’s been a long time since y’all were back together and I don’t need to be there for that reunion. It sucks that it takes all of this to finally bring him home, but he’s here and y’all need to make up for a lot of time lost.”
“Shut up, Leighton.”
“Don’t, Clay.”
“Don’t what? You’ve got every right to be here. You’re just as much a part of our family as he is. Hell, maybe even more so than he is at this point. So just shut up, come with us, and ignore him.”
I shake my head, the fight instantly leaving my sails, knowing I would be arguing until the end of time if I
pressed this issue.
“I can’t believe he doesn’t even recognize you,” Quinn whispers.

Connected since childhood.
Two souls: one dark and one pure.
Bracing to take the greatest step of all.

He wants to marry her; he has never wanted anything more . . .
. . . if only he could speak the words and declare it to the world.

Salome ‘Mae’ Nash’s life had been filled with heartache and pain . . . until, at age eight, she met a strange dark-haired boy from the outside world. Years later, and reunited with her great love, Mae is ready to solder her heart to his. Finally, Mae is getting ready to marry her man. But her fiancĂ© has become withdrawn. Something is deeply troubling him.

***I Do, Babe: A Novella (Hades Hangmen #5.5) is to be read AFTER Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen #5)***





“Mae,” Bella whispered as I walked from the changing room and stood on the elevated plinth opposite my friends and sisters. The mirror was behind me, but I did not yet dare look at my reflection. I glanced at Bella sat beside Ruth, her mother-in-law and Rider’s mama. Her eyes were filling with tears as she stared at me. Her hands were in front of her mouth.
“Do you like it?” I ran my hand over my pronounced stomach.
Bella nodded. “You are perfect,” she whispered. Ruth nodded in agreement.
I looked at Maddie. “Madds?”
She smiled warmly. “You are beautiful, Mae, this dress only enhances that. But this gown could not suit you more if you tried.”
“Styx will love it,” Lilah said and held Grace tighter on her lap.
“You look like a Disney princess,” Grace said.
A hand came down on my arm. I turned to see Beauty behind me. “You ever gonna look in the mirror, darlin’?” She smiled. This boutique belonged to a friend of Beauty’s, and Beauty had practically organized my wedding for me. I was clueless where to even begin.
“You look good, Mae.” I smiled at Letti as she sat uncomfortably on the couch. She had told me she was here to support me, but she had no opinion in such matters as wedding dress shopping. Or anything girly, she’d said affectionately.
“Turn, honey,” Lilah said and I nodded my head. I had no idea why I was so nervous. I knew that Styx loved me and I loved him. I felt as though I had been waiting for this day my whole life. That I had been waiting for the day I finally cemented him as mine. Forever mine, and me forever his.
Closing my eyes, I turned, allowing Beauty to guide me. “You ready?” she whispered. I pulled up the image of Styx in my mind. Me in his arms as we lay in bed. His large tattooed arms holding me close as we spoke. His voice gruff and deep. Then I pictured us laughing. The infamous Hangmen Mute of the Hades Hangmen, so different with me than with anybody else. To others he was aloof, silent, and menacing. But to me, he was loving, caring, and the most beautiful soul in the world.
The other half of my heart.

5 STARS!!


What an AMAZING book by Harper Sloan!! Lost Rider is my type of book; alpha cowboys, sassy women, love, passion, heartbreak & friendship.

Leighton James is one the best female lead characters that I have ever read. She is sweet yet sassy and will stand up to even the grouchiest of people. She has been through so much heartbreak, but instead of it dragging her down, she pushes herself up and moves on with life. Her friendship with Quinn is hilarious, oh and Jane!! Those two make Leighton blush and sputter so much, they have no boundaries. She has only loved one man in her entire life and that man broke her heart, but not her spirit. She has always been there for Maverick and has always believed in him, and even though she hasn't seen him in years, it still doesn't change how she feels.

Maverick is a very troubled man; he is a master of brooding, he is also sexy, charming, and a hard worker. My heart broke for what he was put through as a child, no one deserves to be treated like that. Maverick has always planned on leaving their small town, but he does regret leaving his siblings and the one woman who he has ever loved; Leighton. Maverick learned some eye opening revelations while he was doing the rodeo circuit, and it was tough for him at first, but when he comes back home, Leighton is there for him, in any way. I loved seeing Maverick become less and less haunted by the past and more open to the future. Leighton knocked down his walls and what she and everyone else saw underneath, was something beautiful.

The passion between Maverick & Leighton is explosive, always has been and always will be. I loved that Maverick wanted to prove to Leighton that he was there to stay and proved to her that she is and has always been the woman for him. I loved the bond that Maverick had with his siblings and how they are always there for each other. Maverick may not have come home in years, but you could tell when all the Davis children were there, there was a bond. Lost Rider brought me to tears but also made me laugh out loud and had me fanning myself. Harper Sloan is one of my favorite authors and this new series is off to a great start and I cannot wait for the next book!!

4 STARS!!

This is a new author for me and I am glad that I took a chance, because this was an enjoyable read.

Emma is a runner. She runs from commitment, her past, her mom & even Tristan. Tristan is a persistent man though, and he won't stop chasing Emma until he has got her. I understood what Emma's character was running from and I would have done the same thing, but at the same time, I didn't like how she just pushed everyone away. All her friends wanted to do was help her and when she finally did let them in, it was because she had no other choice. I also didn't like how she just couldn't believe in her mom; yes, I understand she wasn't that great of a mom when she was a kid, but when the changes are staring you right in the face, the least Emma could have done was at least try and believe. Tristan was different than he was actually described, at least I thought so. I loved how caring and sweet he was, but when people talked about him, it was like he was a playboy, but he actually wasn't, like at all. All he wants is to help Emma and I loved his determination and willingness to help her any way he could. 

The connection between Tristan & Emma has been there since they saw each other that first time again since they were kids. I loved that Tristan broke down Emma's walls and once Emma let go of the past, her character was much more likable to me. This really was a good book and I can't wait to see what L.D. Crichton comes out with next!!

PAPERBACK





Excerpt

My hand cradled the back of his neck, holding him prisoner.

I didn’t want him to look away, to move away.

I wanted him inside of me.

His eyes darkened and as if reading my mind, he moved back to pull his pants off. After grabbing a condom, and pulling it on, he came back and settled between my legs.

My arms went back around him, like returning to their home.

“Sam,” he murmured, tracing a finger down the side of my face. He tucked some hair behind my ear, and then I felt his lips against mine again.

Yes. Home.

That’s what this was.

I groaned, my head falling back, and I felt his soft chuckle against my skin, but then he reached down and shifted, lifting my leg until I wound it around his waist. He dipped in, shifting, and I felt him at my entrance. He paused, then slid inside.

My eyes closed and I relished the feel of him in me.

He began moving, thrusting inside of me.

As he kept going, and he slid his hands up my arms to capture my hands, I opened my eyes. We were staring back at each other, watching each other. I could feel him reaching inside of me, searching, claiming me. Everything in my body yearned for him, yearned for more. I wanted more. I needed more.

The second he touched me, everything blared alive. I was awakened. Always.

In and out. Mason kept thrusting.

My fingers clamped down over his, sinking deep as his pace quickened.

“Mason,” I gasped. Weak. His onslaught kept going, harder, faster. “I love you.”

He groaned, climaxing, and his body clenched as he thrust into me a last time. It sent me hurdling over the edge, and I wrapped both arms around his neck, hanging on.

A moment later, he brushed a soft kiss on my forehead before he slipped out.

I still lay beneath him.

I didn’t want to move.

I didn’t want him to move, and eventually, we slept like that.
 
I woke later, but I was still in his arms. He was curled up behind me, and I went back to sleep again. All the doubts and questions would be there tomorrow.

Review for The Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery


Title: Secrets of the Tulip Sisters
Author: Susan Mallery
Publisher: Harlequin
Publish Date: July 11, 2017

Synopsis


A captivating new novel about the problem with secrets, the power of love, and the unbreakable bond between sisters from #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery


Kelly Murphy isn't used to chaos. Her life as a tulip farmer is routine, after all--up at dawn, off to work, lather, rinse, repeat. But everything changes one sunwashed summer with two dramatic homecomings: Griffith Burnett--Tulpen Crossing's prodigal son who's set his sights on Kelly, and her beautiful, wayward and, as far as Kelly is concerned, unwelcome sister. Tempted by Griffith, annoyed by Olivia, Kelly is overwhelmed by the secrets that were so easy to keep when she was alone.

But Olivia's return isn't as triumphant as she pretends. Her job has no future and, ever since her dad sent her away from the bad boy she loved, she has felt cut off from her past. She's determined to reclaim her man and her place in the family...whether her sister likes it or not. For ten years, she and Kelly have been strangers. Olivia will get by without her approval now.

While Kelly and Olivia butt heads, their secrets tumble out in a big, hot mess, revealing some truths that will change everything they thought they knew. Can they forgive each other--and themselves--and redefine what it means to be sisters?

The Tulip Sisters are in for the most colorful summer of their lives...

5 STARS!!

This is the first book that I have read by Susan Mallery and I thoroughly enjoyed it!! This book was filled with forgiveness, family, learning to love yourself how you are and discovering new aspects of life.

Kelly & Olivia are estranged sisters who have a lot of work ahead of them if they want a relationship with each other. Kelly has a very one tracked mind. She doesn't do frills or make up, she is a tulip farmer, but she is also comfortable in her own skin. Olivia is completely opposite; she is glitz & glam, but she doesn't feel like she belongs anywhere. I love the dynamic between these two; their banter was funny and yet when it was serious, you could tell that both sisters were trying to let go of the past and move forward. Their past with each other is a tricky one, but they aren't fully to blame. Their mother is a she-devil who never cared for anyone but herself, I honestly felt so bad for both Kelly & Olivia, because they should have had a mother who loved them and nurtured them. I loved how Olivia branched out and started doing her own thing and finding her way. She really was an amazing planner and organizer and designer, and I was happy when Tulpen Crossing was open to her helpfulness and welcomed her.

Kelly & Olivia weren't the only main characters in this book, well at least for me; there was also, Griffith & Helen. Griffith & Kelly were fantastic together, and I absolutely LOVED what Griffith's profession was; I mean it really isn't common, but I think that is what made it all the more better. Griffith & Kelly each showed each other what real love was and Griffith was really Kelly's rock throughout this book. Helen is Kelly's best friend and I just loved her character. She was curvy and sweet and musically talented. My heart really went out to her, because I have been in her shoes before what with wanting to lose weight and have some body issue insecurities. Her character was just the sweetest and she brought a great dynamic in the Murphy family.

I loved Jeff & Sven, there characters really rounded out the story and their involvement with the other characters really worked well. I loved the romance that was woven in this book, it was centered on it, but it was just enough to placate the romantic in me. This book really was wonderful to read and I just loved the journey that Kelly, Olivia  Helen went on. Secrets of the Tulip Sisters is definitely one of my top reads for 2017 and I cannot wait to see what Susan Mallery comes out with next!!

About KISSING IN CARS (Kiss and Make Up, Book 1)

This novel, along with all others in this series, is a standalone with no cliffhanger. You're welcome.
WILL SHE, OR WON'T SHE...
Studious and (mostly) sensible, the only thing Molly Wakefield wants to do is get through Senior Year and graduate. Well, that and hit the beach in her spare time. Okay, fine - and go shopping every once in a while for a new dress... (and who could blame her?)
And things are going according to plan - until the day she spies Weston McGrath, handsome star athlete and scholar, spying on her in study hall.
A tad creepy? Maybe.
Thrilling? Absolutely.
You see, Weston McGrath happens to be one guy no one can get close to.
Despite her best efforts to avoid it (because let's face it - the guy isn't exactly "boyfriend material") Molly and Weston form a friendship.
And more....
Sort of.
But it's a friendship that comes with a price - because Weston just cannot seem to stop screwing things up. Or saying all the wrong things. Possibly in that order...
And who has time for an 18 year old "fixer-upper" that should know better?
Not Molly.
Or does she?
Note: This YA book is intended for 17+ due to the vulgar language used by its male characters (and occasionally the females as well, even though they're too lady like to do it throughout the entire book).

HE SAID...
“Trust me – If there’s one thing I’m not attracted to, it’s the shrieking, overly-dramatic shrew that’s taken over my sister’s apartment. And what is up with her hair? I know what I want; an easy, uncomplicated lay – and Cecelia Carter sure as shit isn’t one. But I never could resist a challenge, and vow to wipe that condescending grin off her pretty face. Aw, shit. Did I just call her pretty..?” – Matthew Wakefield
SHE SAID...
"Trust me - If there's one thing I'm not attracted to, it's an arrogant, selfish and foul-mouth hockey player. I know what I want; someone who’s good for my body and soul and makes me laugh - and Matthew Wakefield isn't any of those things. I cannot stand the sight of him; I mean, what a jackass. If I refuse to give him anything but sass and sarcasm, it's only because he deserves it…” - Cecelia Carter

About A KISS LIKE THIS (Kiss and Make Up, Book 3)

This novel, along with all others in this series, is a standalone with no cliffhanger. You're welcome.
ABIGAIL DARLINGTON IS AWKWARD…
She will never be “that” girl. You know the one: that girl on campus, confident in her own skin. Always saying the right things. Putting herself out there. Knows how to talk to a guy without stammering.
Nope. Shy but clever, and easily embarrassed, Abby is fine being the wallflower in her circle of outgoing, beautiful friends; she would rather read about a sexy book boyfriend than actually have a live, breathing one.
…BUT CALEB LOCKHART IS WORSE.
Star goaltender for the University’s hockey team, Caleb is quiet and broody, preferring the solitude of his orderly, regimented life. He doesn’t like, or need people—and plans to keep it that way. One more year left of hockey and he’ll be long gone.
AWKWARD NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD. Both their lives change the day that Abigail falls for Caleb. Well, falls directly on top of him, to be accurate. Because sometimes we don’t settle into love.
We fall there.
WARNING: This book contains cursing, and LOTS of it. It also has sex, uncomfortable and often awkward situations. Not to mention, the secondary characters say some really inappropriate s**t. Not intended for readers under 17

Review: 5 STARS!!

Sara Ney is a new author to me and this series just made her one of my favorites!! This series was filled with new beginnings & first loves.

This series was tastefully written and I loved all of the adventures that each couple went on. The men were alpha; protective, possessive, strong, sexy and sometimes awkward. The women were smart, sassy, sexy and sometimes awkward. I loved that we saw all the characters being interwoven throughout each book. I loved seeing each couple grow and I don't have an exact favorite couple, because I loved them all, but I must say that Caleb & Abby were probably the most funny and charming couple. 

Each couple goes through their ups and downs, and I really like that Sara Ney made their issues realistic and not over the top. Each book had their drama, but none that was too much to where it took away from the characters and the story line. Sara Ney did a really great job with making each book its own and I loved how in every book, the characters got older so the chemistry was a little more intense and there were definitely some provocative moments in the college year books. 

I am so happy that I took a chance on this author and I cannot wait to go and read more by her!!
