Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.

I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

I am so pleased I went into Love Online blind. Wow, this is like no romance I’ve ever read before! Overflowing with surprises, the storyline couldn’t have been more original, Ward’s character development was spot on and the dual narrative worked like a dream. But what Penelope delivered and is right up my alley was the dialogue. Sassy blurb abounds, making it a fast-paced read which I sailed through in one sitting.

Ryder McNamara. Irresistible and terribly considerate, he’s got everything going for him. But what I really liked about Ryder is he’s not your typical rich mucho macho hero. Nor does he have a complicated soul. Don’t you just love a drop-dead gorgeous guy who owns his feelings regardless of the complications! Well, if so, you’re in for it! Fulfilling his empty life, making it complete meant the road he’d been taking wasn’t enough. At the beginning of his story, the author teased me with a scenario, giving the impression of unrest and although it seemed feasible, I was left me hanging for more. Thus said, later it became clear that he needed to divert his attention elsewhere. What he does isn’t exactly a means to an end either, and could easily have its repercussions. But…and the huge BUT here, if there weren’t one obstacle he’d have to contend with, there seemed to be a dozen more lined up. I talk about his insistence with delicacy since he’s not one to give up once his mind’s made up.

Montana. Wow, what a really lovely gal she is! Making ends meet means having two jobs. One of them I never ever expected and I hope I’m not letting on but as the title implies, has everything to do with being online. I felt she was too young to shoulder such huge responsibilities; however, every single day with a smile on her face she gets her act together. Sorry ladies, not telling you what it is but I will say this: having accepted her fate a while ago brought home to me that whatever the expectations one has or circumstances one’s in, a strength of character to carry on is crucial. Montana has precisely that.

Ladies, these two will steam up your eReader! Not only are they on the same emotional level, but the sexual tension throbs off the pages. Them being totally sincere with each other melted my heart and is paramount if their relationship is going to move forward. But is a deep understanding and respect enough for them to get their happy ending? Did the twist in the story give me a reason to be worried? Want to find out? One-click!

For me, Ward’s stand-alone novel doesn’t have two protagonists, but three! Now then, they’re not a third wheel or even on the sidelines. You’ll see for yourselves that their well-being is first and foremost for Montana and Ryder and why I was bowled over by such an unforeseen relationship. The texts. Gosh! To say I laughed my head off would be putting it mildly. All the feels ticked my boxes and Ryder’s advice, ooh my…simply cracking! It’s not an overly angsty read; nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope you do too.

Normally, I get carried away with my reviews. This one I’ve had to cut short since I have no wish to spoil it for you. Sweetness flourishes, emotions kicked me in the backside and because I am a romantic at heart, all I can say to Ward is Bravo!

Needing a few seconds to prepare, I closed my eyes the moment I knew he was about to turn on the camera.
I don’t know why I was so afraid to see him. Maybe I was worried his looks would somehow change the way I viewed him. I hated that I’d even had that thought. I didn’t want to be unattracted to him physically because I was so very drawn to him in every other way. Shouldn’t those be the ways that mattered? I was scared I would somehow feel differently about him, and he deserved better than to be judged on his physical appearance.
“You can open your eyes,” he said.
My heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest.
Here goes.
One, two, three…
When I saw him right in front of me, my mouth fell open.
Oh.
Oh my.
Oh wow.
Big, glowing eyes. Perfect nose. Stubbled, angular jaw. Full lips. Strong arms. I just kept blinking because I couldn’t believe my eyes. He looked like a model or a movie star. A rush of insecurity hit me.
Is this a joke?
No, it wasn’t.
It was really him.
Ryder.
Oh my God.
The lust consuming me made me feel almost guilty. But I was so damn relieved that he was truly as beautiful on the outside as I believed him to be on the inside. He was almost too beautiful, if there were such a thing.
He looked nothing like the vague image I’d formed in my head, which was sort of like a silhouette without a clear face but with a brown beard, kind of like a hipster. Not sure why I’d pictured him like that. It was kind of funny how off base I was. This was not what I’d been expecting. Because how could someone so thoughtful, attentive, creative, and considerate be so strikingly handsome that he made me speechless? And it was clear now that his sexy voice absolutely fit him.
“You’re…” I hesitated.
“Oh shit.” He laughed. “What are you thinking?”
“No. No, no, no. Nothing bad at all. I just don’t even know how to articulate it. You’re…beautiful, Ryder. Absolutely beautiful.”
He let out a breath. “And you’re…handsome, Eden. Very handsome.” His impish grin was so sexy.
I chuckled. “I know beautiful is an odd term for a man, but you are. All this time you’ve been hiding from me when you’re drop-dead gorgeous. Why?”
“You really did think I was ashamed of my looks, huh?”
“Well, I’d be lying if I said that didn’t cross my mind. I wondered if there was something you were self-conscious about. That always made me a little sad. But it never mattered to me, because I’ve been connecting with you on a deeper level.”
“I think that’s exactly why I didn’t want to change things,” he said. “Why fix something if it ain’t broken?” When I fell silent, he asked, “What are you thinking?”
A nervous energy overtook me. “Nothing. I’m…still just taking you in.”
“Okay. Let me know when you’re done so I can stop sucking in my abs.”

THE PERFECT DUET by Meghan Quinn IS NOW COMPLETE!

THE PERFECT DUET IS NOW COMPLETE!

The Left Side Of Perfect is LIVE!

For better or for worse,’til death do us part . .

The better captured me; she’s who stole my heart.

And made me realize I couldn’t live without this woman.

The worse of her took my breath away–kicked me when I was down and twisted me into a million knots.

When I first met her, I thought she was someone I would never see again.

The second time I ran into her, it was a random coincidence.

The third?

I didn’t know it at the time, but she was the girl I was going to marry.

But life isn’t always perfect. You have to take the better and the worse–even if it means giving her up, having her slip between your fingers, and letting her walk away.

I’m getting married.

This is forever, ’til death do us part.

Just a heads up to those who haven’t read the author’s previous duet. I recommend that you read The Upside of Falling and The Downside of Love to give you a full background of the main characters in this story.

This friends-to-lovers romantic tale features Colby Brooks and the two women who came into his life. The first one is a mutual friend from a previous relationship and the second woman he bumps into by accident and gradually falls in love with her. I must admit I always had a soft spot for Colby in the previous duet and I was hoping he will get his own story someday. Well, my wish was granted, thank you very much, Ms. Quinn.

In this well-written narrative the author provides the readers an extensive backstory of Colby’s friend and her nondescript and mildly irritating presence in the previous books makes you realise there is more depth to her than how she was portrayed before. Her somewhat insignificant character suddenly metamorphoses into the girl who just might be the right girl for our hero. With Colby’s emotional and moral support she slowly comes into her own. Will she finally appreciate her own self-worth and find her own happy ever after?

I felt that the first part of the book was a bit slow to my liking, but it picks up the pace halfway through. The other woman who comes into Colby’s life is perceived as the perfect match for him; however, I found that their relationship was almost too good to be true. Surely there must be a catch? This first book ends with a cliff-hanger and fortunately for us readers, book two is released the day after because I am dying to find out who Colby is going to end up with. This first instalment is the author’s wicked way of tormenting her readers, but I am very impressed with the way it turned out. If you are one of those readers who didn’t like how the second book in the previous duet ended, you must give this one a try or you will be missing out on Colby’s greatness!

The Right Side Of Forever – Release Day 31st August

In sickness and in health, to love and to cherish . . .

It sounds so simple, to love someone unconditionally.

To give them your heart.

So why is she slowly eating away at my soul with every unanswered phone call, every unread text, and every door left unopened?

She said yes, and yet, in order for her to be with me . . . I need to let her go.

Reviewed by Anna Green on behalf of KFF

Told in different points of view, this friends-to-lovers/love triangle epic romance continues with the couple’s engagement and someone else’s broken heart.

When a reader comes across a hero who is a dashing Air Force pilot, kind, sensitive, great in bed and with a generous heart you have an almost perfect male protagonist that no one in this planet is good enough for him. The author has created a god amongst us mortals that matching Colby with a heroine who not only is insecure but also has a lot of baggage seems inadequate. But this is where I truly admire Ms. Quinn’s skills because her brilliant narrative of the heroine’s backstory certainly turned my head and I ended up rooting for her. I love how the characters in this romantic tale treat each other with respect and maturity. Rory and Stryder also play significant roles in this story and bring closure to the whole messed up saga.

“Just like there is a right side and left side of perfect, there is a right and left side of forever. The left side of forever represents the relationships that come and go in your life but have had an impact on the person you’ve become. The right side of forever provides the relationship that stays with you, the relationship that’s imprinted itself so deep into your bone marrow that you live and breathe for that person.” 

This author successfully entwines the imperfections of the two main characters and creates two wonderful individuals who are the opposite of each other like two puzzle pieces that are a perfect fit, yin and yang. Their previous relationships made them who they are now and although I felt sad and angry on behalf of Colby in the other duet, this second book brings everything into a full circle. When an author’s clever narrative can make you switch sides and cheer for someone who you were not overly impressed with previously, then Ms. Quinn must be a mind-bender or one who has upped her game. I think this is her best work to date. If you loved the first duet then this beautiful love story will tickle your heart and make you swoon for Colby. (4.5 Stars)

Her hands rest on her hips, the navy-blue Grecian-style dress draped down the length of her body, a small slit on the side that barely reaches her knee. “You’re really fixated on this, aren’t you?”“Nah, didn’t care too much. A homemade dinner would have been nice, though.”“I can’t cook.”“Neither can I,” I answer honestly. I either eat out, or I make myself scrambled eggs, and that’s about it. Rory taught me how to make meatballs once but hell if I can remember how to do that. All I know is that I enjoyed crushing the beef between my fingers. I get by with limited knowledge in the kitchen.She chuckles. “Well, aren’t we a pair?” She turns to watch Stryder and Rory together. Apparently not giving a shit about the even bigger elephant in the room, Ryan asks, “Is this weird for you?”

“I have a flask in my jacket pocket, so you tell me.”

She lifts her bouquet and pulls out a mini bottle of alcohol. She wiggles her eyebrows at me. “Thought maybe we’d both need this since we have to sit through having all these pictures taken with them.”

“Smirnoff? That’s what you brought with you?”

“It was all I had. Don’t judge me.”

“I’m judging.”

Playfully she whacks my arm. “You shouldn’t be judging me. It was innovative. I carved out a little space in my bouquet for this bottle. If anything, you should congratulate me on this genius idea.”

“Was it your idea?”

“I mean”—she toes the ground—“I might have seen the idea on Pinterest along with a recipe for beer cookies that tasted like vomit.”

“Beer cookies?” I shake my head and take the little bottle from her. Twist the cap, tilt the bottle back, and swig. I hand it back to her, leaving half the bottle. “Even I know better than to think beer cookies would taste good.”

“They were for a boyfriend I was trying to impress.”

“Impress or poison?”

“Impress.” She laughs. “Although after our breakup, I should probably say poison. Teach all future suitors: if you mess with me, you get poisoned.”

“It’d keep me away, that’s for damn sure.”

She finishes the rest of the little bottle and returns it to her bouquet. She pats it and says, “I can recycle it later.”

“Get drunk and save the earth. Sounds like a good combination to me.”

“Ryan and Colby, can we get you over here for a few pictures?” the photographer calls out.

“That’s our cue.” Ryan pokes my cheek with her index finger, looking sincerely at me. “Don’t forget to smile, because these pictures will last forever.”

“Scowling not in the job description of best man?”

As we walk over, she says, “I would normally say no, but given the bride is your ex-girlfriend, one scowl is allowed.”

“One scowl? Damn, better make it a good one.”

 

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

5 Stars~Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse at KFF

Ooh my, I still can’t wipe the grin off my face regardless of the ginormous cliffy which I might add, knocked me for six! Yeah, it’s totally Nina’s style but at the same time, totally unexpected since I thought she’d lead me to a place where there’d be a glimmer of hope. And although this is the first book in the What If Duet, I highly recommend reading the prequel first, If We Leap. It takes place a while back, giving readers a better understanding of her protagonists’ young lives and yes, the ending is just as gut-wrenching as this one. So, more advice…take a deep breath ‘cause you’ll probably want to stamp on your Kindle! Now then, If We Fall didn’t take off where I assumed it would. More reason for me to be intrigued, especially seeing that Cole had changed so much and Josie; well, I really don’t want to say too much because you have to read these guys’ story.

I fully admit that I love all Nina’s previous publications, but this one is simply beyond perfection. For the want of getting my hands on If We Fly coming 13th September, is something ridiculous! My patience, in this case, is literally zero and you’ll see why. Two lives. Two people from different backgrounds, who seemingly have most of the cards stacked against them for reasons to be divulged, start making plans. Their future looks bright, they have the blessing of Josie’s parents, and then everything came tumbling down in the split of a second. Argh, Cole and Josie made me cry. Okay, so I do get teary-eyed pretty easily, but what had happened wasn’t in the slightest bit fair. And few authors get me swearing like a trooper, but my language turned the air blue in more than one scenario. Yet Lane got me thinking about the consequences, how it had deeply affected them, how Cole coped with it and how Josie’s suffering altered her happy-go-lucky character. Trying to pick up the pieces, their lives go on. Neither are happy.

The author delved into Josie’s trauma in such a way that I couldn’t help but feel her pain. On the other hand; Cole, I didn’t know him. Gone was that enthusiastic lad I knew. Gone were his dreams. He is even more gorgeous, much older of course; however, his bitterness, his selfishness and need for vengeance vibrate off the pages. When I wished for the return of normalcy because I honestly believed it was possible, another hurdle appeared on the horizon.

This read that brought out all the feels was read in one-sitting, left me in an emotional mess, and I can’t wait to see to see if Josie and Cole get their happy ending. The way things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if, in book two, I have a nervous attack so Nina, please don’t break my heart more than it already is! One of my fave romances of the year, trying my very hardest not to let on was a real effort, but I must for you readers. Bravo Lane!

KFF’S REVIEW

 

 

New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Nina Lane writes hot, sexy romances about professors, bad boys, candy makers, and protective alpha males who find themselves consumed with love for one woman alone. Originally from California, Nina holds a PhD in Art History and an MA in Library and Information Studies, which means she loves both research and organization. She also enjoys traveling and thinks St. Petersburg, Russia is a city everyone should visit at least once. Although Nina would go back to college for another degree because she’s that much of a bookworm and a perpetual student, she now lives the happy life of a full-time writer.

About UNZIPPED (Coming 30/10/2018)

Picture this – I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I’m good and ready this time around. After all, if you’re going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops.

There’s only one little problem.

My college girlfriend isn’t the one who shows up when I play my “I’ll do anything to win you back” tune.

The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore. But she’ll help me win her back. Anything for romance, anything for a guy so willing to go big for love. And that’s what I want at first. Until I get to know my new “romance coach” and discover she’s funny, clever, and keeps me on my toes. And boy, do I ever need that.

Now I don’t want to win anyone else’s heart. I want the woman who’s been helping me all along.

Trouble is – she thinks I’m in love with someone else, and when we take off on a road trip, everything I think I know about women is about to be unzipped and turned inside out.

Wanted what we can’t have.

Only my fantasy has turned into an obsession.
Every night like clockwork he’s there.
Every night like clockwork I’m ready.

I’m not the kind of girl who does this kind of thing and
he’s exactly the kind of man that does.

He’s as sexy AF.
Dominant as all hell.
Built like a machine.

And when he turns up at my work

My worst f**king nightmare.

I swipe my key through the door scanner. It’s 9:35 p.m and I’m late. After not wanting to come at all, and deliberating the whole thing for over an hour in the shower, I’m finally here.
I’m not really sure why, but what the hell. It can’t hurt, I suppose.
I walk into the gym and take a look around. There are a few guys working out at the back, plus a girl on the treadmill.
Great. He’s not even here.
All that over-analysing for nothing
Damn it.
After making my way onto the treadmill I start walking. I turn up the speed and begin to walk faster. I suppose I’ll have to actually work out then. What an anticlimax. I spent over an hour psyching myself up to be here, and he doesn’t even show up.
Fucking typical.
All men piss me off.
Oh well, it’s his loss.
Turning up the speed, I begin to jog, getting lost in the repetition. But when I look up into the mirror, I see him. There he is. He’s sitting on the weights bench in the corner, and flashing a slow sexy smile my way. He’s wearing a white T-shirt and navy sports shorts.
My stomach dances with excitement. I force him a smile, and then I look down, pretending to be uninterested.
God, he’s so….
He’s probably just a prop in this place. That’s what I would do if I owned a gym: pay gorgeous guys to hang out and make the girls swoon. It makes good business sense, that’s for sure.
I run for fifteen minutes, and he does weights as he watches me. To be honest, I wish he would look away because I’m dying over here. I can’t run for this long naturally. I’m totally showing off. I may go ass over tit at any moment and skin my knee to the bone.
One man finally leaves the gym, and then five minutes later the other one follows. The group of guys walk out the back, leaving only one woman in the gym who is doing sit ups. His eyes trail over to her, and I wonder is he thinking the same thing as me.
Buzz off, woman. Why are you in the gym so late, stupid?
I stop running and bring the treadmill back to a walking pace. I wipe my face with my towel, grateful when the lady packs up her things and leaves through the front door.
Brock’s eyes find mine in the mirror and a dark smile crosses his face.
Shit. My heart begins to beat faster. I keep walking, and he stands to make his way over to me.
“Hello,” he purrs.
I smile goofily. “Hi.” Why does he have to be so damn sexy? I can’t even pretend to be cool.
He puts his hand over mine on the handrail, and I feel an energy zap between us.
“I’ve been thinking about you all day,” he says.
My eyes hold his as my stomach flips. “Y-you have?” I pant.
He nods slowly, his eyes not leaving mine for a single second.
“What were you thinking about?” I ask.
“I was thinking that I need to talk to you in private.”
God, is he for real? “Is that so?” I look around the empty gym. “Is that why you had to wait for everyone to leave to come and talk to me?”
“Well, I didn’t want anyone to be suspicious of the two of us talking the other night in the bathroom.”
“Talking?” I smirk. “Is that what you call it?”
He smiles sexily, and my stomach clenches yet again. Don’t smile at me like that.
“Yes.” He pauses as he rolls his lips, as if amused. “It was a very stimulating conversation.”
I smile as I continue to walk.
“For some more than others,” he adds.
Unable to help it, I laugh. “Yes, it was a very stimulating conversation that we had the other night.”
His eyes hold mine. “Did you enjoy it?”
What’s it going to be? I get a vision of Simon last night with that girl.
Sink or swim.
“I did.” Our eyes are locked. “Very much, actually.”
Oh, this guy makes me want to be a dirty whore.
Satisfaction flashes across his face and he licks his lips. He runs his hand up my forearm, his eyes following his touch. “I have something else to tell you.”
I act surprised. “You do?”
“I do.”
“What is it?”
“I can’t tell you here, Pocket.” His eyes rise to my lips.
“Why not?” I feel the burn of his gaze.
“It’s private.”
He takes his hand off my arm, and it causes me to frown. I hate the loss of his touch. “So, where do you want to tell me this private information?” I ask as I play along.
“We should probably talk where we talked last time.” He rolls his lips to hide his smile, he likes this game.
“Really?” I widen my eyes.
He nods slowly. “Really.”
I continue to walk on the treadmill.
“So, I’m going to go into the discussion room now.”
“The discussion room?” I widen my eyes and laugh. “You are something else.”
“I know,” he chuckles, and then gestures up to the ceiling. I look up, following his direction.
There’s a camera…
Shit.
“I’m going to go into the discussion room, and in five minutes, you should do the same.”
“But, they’ll see us?” I whisper.
“No, they won’t. Once you come into the bathroom, you just have to stay in there for five minutes. If we don’t enter or leave together, the tapes won’t be looked at. Not unless there is an incident and they have to be watched back.
“Oh.” I frown, and without another word he disappears up the hall with his gym bag. I walk for another five minutes with my heart beating out of control. This is so naughty, so freaking hot, and I have to say, so out of character for me that it’s not even funny.
I’ll just go and talk to him—see what he has to say. I hope he kisses me again. His kiss was to die for. Who the heck is this guy, anyway?
I would never do this. I am not the sort of girl who meets up with guys in a public bathroom. My eyes flicker to the hallway as my excitement runs through me.
Am I?
I hit stop on the treadmill with my heart hammering in my chest. I take my towel and drink bottle, and then I walk up the hall to the bathrooms. I look up and see the camera at the end of the hall positioned so it shows all of the five bathroom doors clearly. I drop my head to hide my face.
As long as I don’t walk back out, he said I’m fine.
God, if anyone ever knew I was doing this, I’d die.
I walk to the end door and take the handle in my hand. I pause for a moment and close my eyes. My heart is banging, and I look back up the hall one more time. Should I go? No. Just do it.
I open the door and rush in, quickly closing the door behind me. I flick the lock and turn around.
The room is filled with steam and the shower screen is open. Brock is naked in the shower when he turns to face me.
His large shoulders and chest have soap over them, and his hair is already wet. His stomach is rippled with muscles, and his huge hard cock hangs heavily between his legs.
He smiles sexily. “Took your time, Pocket.”
Oh, dear God. Holy. Fucking. Shit.
“Brock!” I frown as I stare at him. “What the hell are you doing?”
I glance back to the door, damn it. I can’t leave for a few minutes.
He looks at me casually and rubs the soap in across his chest. “Taking a shower, what does it look like?”
“You’re incredible.” I shake my head in disgust. “I’m leaving right now.”
“Why?” He gives me a slow sexy smile and holds his hands out to the side. “Taking a shower is a perfectly natural thing. I wanted to be clean for our conversation.”
Bastard.
“You want to have a conversation with me with,” I gesture to his groin, “with your dick hanging out.”
He looks down at himself, and then back up at me. “Does my dick offend you?”
“Yes,” I gasp. “Your dick offends me.”
I glance down again. That is the most beautiful dick I’ve ever seen. Okay, sure, I haven’t seen many, but I’m still sure it’s the most perfect one there is. For fuck’s sake, this guy is so over confident, I don’t even have words to describe him, and why the hell is it turning me on?
This is un-fucking-believable. How on earth did I get myself into this situation?
Brock continues to rub soap over his chest, eventually lathering his groin area up, too. I have to concentrate on not looking down again.
“Why?” he asks.
I frown. “Because… because…” I look around as I search for the right choice of words. “It’s the assumption you make that I am comfortable with you being naked when I’m not.” I shake my head and throw my hands in the air. “I’m so not.”
“If it makes you feel more comfortable, I am completely fine with you taking your clothes off, too.” He shrugs casually. “You know, for our discussion.”
I smirk. Of all the hide. “You’re an idiot.”
He smiles that sexy smile again, and I feel my insides begin to melt. “I prefer to think I’m just honest.”
“How is this being honest?”
“Well.” He pauses as a moment as he soaps his groin up again.
“Will you stop doing that!” I snap. “It’s very distracting.” I concentrate hard on keeping my eyes focused on his face.
“Big dicks don’t lie,” he says, raising his brow.
I stare at him, completely lost for words, even though I really want to howl with laughter. “You did not just say that?”

Behind every great hatred there may be a love story, but behind the face of an angel and his sweet words was nothing but pretty little lies.

My hatred for Noah Hill really did start as love – hard as it is to believe.

A love that was the earth-shattering, forever type that not everyone is fortunate enough to experience in their lifetime… or so I thought.

Take a picture, it’ll last longer.

That’s what he said to me.

That was the biggest lie of them all.

Because the broken heart remained long after the pictures burned.

REVIEWED BY TRACEY LOU ON BEHALF OF KFF

Author Kristi Lynn is a new author with great potential and a bright future ahead of her. SWERVE is her debut novel and won’t disappoint you. Her words on paper come from her heart and soul.

This book is a second chance romance and we all love one of those. Camryn and Trystan were high school sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Unfortunately, this was not to be the case. Misunderstandings and heartbreak lead this couple to be separated for 12 years.

An unexpected death draws Camryn back to town and you can be sure Trystan will be there for her. He’s always loved Camryn and has been waiting for her to listen to and give him a second chance. Things are never what they seem and stubbornness played a big factor in this couple lives.

Trystan is a lovable character, an alpha male who is now a respected police detective. I kind of felt sorry for him after learning about the circumstances that had shaped his life. But the one good thing to come out of it all was someone he wouldn’t be without.

Camryn is feisty and stubborn and doesn’t want to be hurt again. Will she finally listen to what he has to say? I hope so! Can Trystan make her listen? Will these two characters get their happy ending? Second chances don’t come around too often. So I say, grab it while you can!

There were some great characters in this book, I especially loved Hunter. I sincerely hope we get to hear more from him in the future. My last mention before I leave is for the cover of this book. Simply stunning and Hot Hot Hot. Well done and congratulations on your debut novel. Something to be proud of!
