TWO REVIEWS ~ TOUCH MY SOUL by Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey-Berrick

Today we are thrilled to be sharing two reviews of Stuart Reardon and Jane Harvey-Berrick’s heart-breaking love story, TOUCH MY SOUL

“Oh, you little heartbreaker!”

Ben Richards is a professional rugby player, successful and single. He has everything he wants in life, except for the health of his younger brother who suffers from a life-limiting illness.

When fun and feisty physiotherapist Brunina comes into both their lives, he realizes that love is a precious gift—and that a little love can last a lifetime.

Jane Harvey-Berrick and Stuart Reardon seem to me to be having a wordy-wise book love affair going on! In a nutshell; they cracked it in this novella, making me sob ‘till the cows came home! The flawless first-person perspective in past tense shares thoughts, fears and future doubts. Okay…I am a crybaby per se, but that doesn’t mean that their latest offering didn’t touch my brainstem in every possible way. A duo to be reckoned with regarding sports romance if you like the thrill of going in blind; delving into the unknown and yearn for surprises, Touch My Soul has it all. It’s not a long read; however, the authors have covered a heart-wrenching subject with the utmost compassion, finesse, and sensitivity.

The opportunity to learn more about the stress behind professional rugby was far too enticing to be ignored since this genre apart from contemporary romance is at the top of my list. And to top the lot, a solid storyline about how two brothers felt in a dire situation was in my book, beyond special. Why you may ask! It was a question of tackling head on one’s acceptance of what’s on the cards. How Ben Richards come to terms with his younger brother, Paul’s illness. How they both cope with it. Regarding everyday tasks, Paul’s self-respect is in question since simple things in life aren’t easy and ooh boy, did I feel for him.

Here steps in a no-nonsense physiotherapist not to be messed with. Brunina aka Ru has a new job to do as best as she can in front of some very attractive and burly rugby players. Their flirtations could easily overstep the mark; nonetheless, someone reminds them about the art of courtesy. She’ll cannily take what she gets with abounding Brit humour and sass and I fell hard for her. A relief to laugh out loud when the story is so heartbreaking. Work ethics she has, but she catches the eye of Ben. He likes what he sees and sparks fly, romance is in the air and I clapped my hands with glee.

Ben is adorable. Chivalrous, attentive…hmm, my new book boyfriend if he’s not already been taken! Opening his heart, observing his thoughts and watching how the story evolved kept me attentive at all times. Ladies, he and Ru’s chemistry cannot be denied. For me, their story is so much more than the steaminess, which I might add, is scorching hot.

The beginning of the story is harsh stuff, and as it rolled on, I was left with a lump in my throat. The twist floored me to the point of tears, the ending…I have no words to describe how I felt. I honestly don’t know how these authors have managed to pull off such a beautifully written novella, seeing as the content is so dense. This little-big gem of a read is not too long or too short and most certainly a must-read. Bravo Harvey-Berrick and Reardon!

Reviewed by Anna on behalf of KFF

A collaboration of two authors, their novella is packed with an emotional punch. A short story that made my heart shatter into pieces but made whole again by the inspiring message and hope.

Ben Richards is a winger for the Finchley Phoenexis, a top league Rugby Union Club.  He is wholly dedicated to his sport, a responsible young man and a skilled athlete at the top of his game.  Paul, his younger brother, is the one who keeps him grounded and makes him reflect on life and the choices given to him.

Bruninha or Ru, is the new physiotherapist of the team. A little spitfire who won’t be messed around in the locker room by a bunch of jocks, she is quick-witted and can give as good as she gets. Ru is a young woman who’s full of life and loves her job.

This tale narrated from Ben’s point of view may be short but is full of angst. When I was warned that I might need tissues, I knew that somewhere along the storyline this will end in tears and although I didn’t bawl my eyes out (I managed to hold it in), the grief and heartbreak I felt for the characters was totally consuming. This book is not only about romance but also tells us about the two brothers’ relationship. Eighteen-year-old Paul is a charming character, he may be physically weak but his zest for life is contagious. The interaction between Ru and her family, with Ben and his own parents, is significant.

The authors successfully combine the entertaining world of rugby and the fascinating family dynamics of Ben and Ru’s families. My only gripe is that because this is a novella, I felt short-changed, I wanted so much more. I hope the authors will give us more of Ben’s story. I highly recommend this.

“What’s the matter with you?” Paul asked the next evening. “You’re being weird.”“What are you talking about, you little squirt? Weird how?”“Smiling and shit. It’s creepy.”Without looking, I threw a cushion at his head and flipped channels on the TV. Mum and Dad were having a rare night out for just the two of them, so Paul was staying with me. We didn’t call it babysitting, but that’s kind of what it was. It took quite a lot of planning for him to spend the night away from home: there were all his meds to pack up; his high-calorie drinks, some strange banana-flavoured stuff called Fortisip which was like a thick milkshake and a feeding supplement. I kept a bunch of his stuff at my place anyway, and I knew he liked getting away from Mum and Dad—they could be pretty stifling, especially now he was 18. He should be leaving home and taking the place he’d been offered at Cambridge to study Chemistry or going backpacking around the world or getting his first job. Instead, he was stuck being a kid while his health became more and more fragile. He threw the cushion back and grabbed the remote control, flipping back to the DVD channel. I groaned. Game of Thrones again. I’d never got into it, even though I thought that Queen of Dragons chick was hot, but Paul loved it.
“So, are you going to tell me what’s up?”

“Nope.”

“You’re being a dickhead, Ben,” he grumbled.

“Not true! I’ve ordered pizza and I’m letting you watch Dungeons and Dragons.”

He gripped the remote control and glared at me.

“It’s Game of Thrones, knob head.”

“Cheese dick,” and I grabbed the remote, holding it over my head.

“Wanker.”

“Tosser.”

“That’s weapons-grade tosser to you.”

I was distracted when my phone beeped with a message and Paul yanked the remote control out of my hands.

Have fun with Paul.

Excited about our date! You’d better impress me.

Ru x

“What’s that stupid smile on your face?” Paul asked suspiciously.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“It’s that girl, isn’t it? The hot one at the hospital.”

My denial was a second too slow.

“Holy shit, are you shagging her?”

I slapped him around the head, not very gently.

“Don’t talk about her like that.”

He rubbed his head, surprise written on his face.

“Sorry, bruv. I didn’t realise that you liked her that way.” He paused. “She seemed really nice.”

“She is,” I said shortly.

 

QUICK QUOTES

Life would never be the same again. Sometimes that’s not necessarily a good thing.

Guys, if you’re reading this, here’s a tip from the top: women love cake. Doesn’t matter what kind because they love all types of cake.

If you were twice as smart as you are, you’d be half as smart as you think you are.

Her mittens pressed against the back of my neck, drawing me closer, and we kissed, on the top of a London double-decker bus as snowflakes started to drift down around us, catching in Ru’s dark hair, sparkling like diamonds before they melted. Could anything ever be this perfect again?

Ru was the storm that I didn’t see coming. No clouds on the horizon, just the heat on my skin as I felt the electricity between us.

CRAVING TRUTHS by K A Sands is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing the third book in KA Sands’ The Razer Series, CRAVING TRUTHS

One second.

The blink of an eye.

No turning back.

If there was ever a Princess with a crooked crown, I was she. My indiscretions were well known, my reputation less than clean. A pawn in Daddy’s games, I played my part well.

A single act of desperation brought my world tumbling down around me, the consequences bringing a beast to my door. One adamant on leaving me broken.

I hadn’t counted on the one thing I’d never had being my saving grace.

Love from a man who had yearned to know me for more years than I understood.

Love from a man who’d been left irrevocably scarred by the memories of his past.

Both men were different, their intent the same. But I was Charlie’s princess, the Boss’s daughter, and I’d learnt to live behind a wall of armour from an early age.

I didn’t know if I was ready. If I was worth it. If I deserved it. Until the little boy with the big eyes stole my heart.

This is my story. This is my fight. Truths were unfolding whether I was ready or not.

This is the death of a princess.

*Please note – Craving Truths is the 3rd book in The Razer Series and is NOT a standalone. Contains content only suitable for 18+, including graphic scenes.

TAYLOR #0.5

Seven years.
Two thousand, five hundred and fifty five days.
Too many seconds to count.

My lonely existence is scattered over countless towns and cities. I’d given up a long time ago. Lost my way. The only constant – my sister – lives the same lie.

A distraught encounter.

A passionate outburst.

One look. One touch. And the pain of yesterday manifests into something else. I forget I broke his heart, right along with my own. Remember the promises we made. Yet I walk away for a second time.
If only I’d take a gamble and reach.

On crumpled paper, I leave him a clue, one that speaks of hope and fear.

Of love.

The last pin has been pushed and now all I can do is wait…

Cover Designer: Melissa Panio-Petersen

FINAL REDO 5ML Paperback 6x9_BW_350 copy.jpg

Thea Hughes has five minutes to live.

A car accident stole her parents and left her with the second-worst documented case of amnesia in the world. She now has only minutes of experiences, of consciousness, of life…before her memory is wiped clean. The once effervescent artist with a promising future is reduced to scribbling with pens and paper, living an empty, quiet life, three hundred seconds at a time.

Jim Whelan is on autopilot.

A foster kid shuffled around the system since birth, he’s lived his entire life without knowing love…and it’s taken its toll—until he learned to fight back, carry his armor, and keep his head down.

Working as an orderly in the Blue Ridge Sanitarium, deep in Virginia countryside, Jim looked up…and found Thea.

When Thea has the chance to break free of her five-minute prison with a risky, experimental surgery, it could lead them both to an epic love they never thought possible… or one that could require the ultimate sacrifice.

NEW JUNIPER SMOKE COVER.jpg

In an age of casual hook-ups, can love survive the test of time?

Juniper and Kyle meet when she is dangling forty feet from a museum scaffolding.

Juniper Mills is a straitlaced but sassy curator at a History Museum. Raised by her mother to hate men, she worries she’ll die a frigid scholar in a musty house with an army of cats and a lake of books.

This helps him cope with the dark memories of his ex-girlfriend, who still haunts him. Not looking for love, he only hooks up with Amazonian models.

When he joins the museum board, Juniper falls for him. She wants him, but knows it’s going to be as hard as catching the ocean in a teacup. Juniper becomes Kyle’s obsession, but the tragic secrets of his past cloud his feelings.

Juniper manages to knock Kyle’s world off its axis and their galaxies collide in this very unfairy tale. But can they overcome their differences and stop a hateful and vindictive person from tearing them apart?

RUMBLE
(World Class Wrestling #2) a release boost!

Add to Goodreads

 

 

Two years. That’s the amount of time I’ve wasted lusting after Wyatt
Douglas.

He had me the moment he roared up on his bike and flashed his charismatic
smile my way. I wanted to jump on, wrap my arms around him, and ride off
into the sunset.

Then my brother introduced him as his friend and crushed my short lived
happily ever after.

To make matters worse, we work together at World Class Wrestling and our
storylines are intertwined. I have a strict rule I’ve always adhered to;
never mix business with pleasure.

But with each moment we spend together, avoiding that carefully drawn line is becoming more difficult.

There’s an ongoing rumble between my heart and my head. Which one will win out in the end?

Reviewed by donna on behalf of KFF

Ronnie Gunn is one gutsy and determined woman who works at World Class Wrestling. She’d met Wyatt Douglas two years ago and has secretly had a huge crush on him. The moment he got off his motorbike and showed his charismatic smile and good looks, she was hooked. Jess, her brother and Wyatt’s best friend, throws cold water on her short-lived notion of any kind of romance. Things are made awkward when they have to work together with the wrestling storylines entwining. First rule, don’t mix business with pleasure; however, Ronnie finds this increasingly difficult when they spend a lot of time together.

I liked Ronnie’s fearlessness but underneath it all, I could understand why she was harbouring such strong feelings. Wyatt is equally attracted to Ronnie and has wanted her just as much, although he knows she’s stubborn and would build up any walls allowing him to be with her. Furthermore, Wyatt’s full of confidence and determined to fight for her. The only thing these two have to worry about is Ronnie’s brother, Jesse. He would be none to happy about his little sister and best friend getting together. Gosh, the chemistry and sexual tension was like a pressure cooker waiting to explode between the two!

Rumble is the second book in the Wrestling duet and despite being a stand-alone, I would highly recommend reading Tussle first. Jesse Gunn’s brother, Ronnie and his lady love, Lilah make cameo appearances. These two fabulous characters were in Tussle, so it was great catching up a little and finding out how life was treating them. I love the World Class Wrestling theme. It brings something different to the vast amount of sports romances out there plus it was back down memory lane, watching wrestling on a Saturday afternoon with my dad when I was a child. Mr. Chance yet again shows his diversity and you could tell from his words that sport is his passion.

I was enthralled from the first page right up until the very last one. Rumble had everything to keep me entertained; funny, romantic, steamy and slow burn. The characters are well-developed and definitely have that likeability factor. I wanted to know where the author would take me and a couple of surprises along the way were a welcome addition to the story. Such an epic thrilling read, I even played the group mentioned in Rumble just to get into the participants moment. We all know this is a sport where they like to make a grand entrance. A very enjoyable story and worthy of the five stars given.

Beautiful and mysterious she possessed little more. . . Than a dangerous and troublesome past.

THE MISTER, the highly anticipated new love story from #1 New York Times bestseller E L James is available now!

the mister hi res 1.22.19.jpg

London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? And can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?

From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.

I can’t recommend reading and listening to The Mister at the same time enough. In fact, there was a moment when I had to recharge my earphones and ooh boy, did I miss the sensuously aristocratic voice of narrator Dominic Thorburn. And Jessica O’Hara Baker did a very fine job indeed narrating the female protagonist’s feelings, her cadence and that of others. James has been very adventurous mixing Maxim Trevelyan’s thoughts in first-person and Alessia Demachi’s story in third and I won’t even start on the excellent character development!

The author’s combined two complete opposites from totally different walks of life and not just made it work, she nailed it! Another detail which grabbed my attention was the truncated sentences which for me, made a lot of sense since the young lady who would rock Maxim Trevelyan’s world has a couple of problems understanding our idioms and adages. James’ carefully-worded prose knitted together with an original plot put me at ease, seeing as I had no idea what to expect. I’m a glutton for the Fifty Shades series…but this book, well, apart from having a fairy tale ring to it, I can honestly say is it was beyond my expectations.

Fast-moving if not distressing, the prologue opened up my appetite for more. Then when they meet, I had to smile because the scenario was in effect, unusual. Maxim has it all. Or does he? A constant pleasure-seeker, he’d never had trouble finding female company and despite being sorely tempted to have his way with Alessia, he does have a moral compass. Nonetheless, he can’t take his eyes off this lass with a beguiling talent, and she rather likes what she sees, too.

But there are so many hurdles to overcome in this slow burn romance. Present-day subjects such as social class, wealth versus poverty and the protagonists’ cultural differences were told fittingly. But the illegal goings on…deary me, it’s harsh stuff to stomach. Also, reading about Alessia’s plight broke my heart in two. Talk about flipping the pages isn’t in it! 80% in and all I yearned for was getting to the end just to find out if they’d have their HEA.

On a lighter note, the banter’s fabulous. Of course, being the upper-crust Brit that he is, doesn’t stop Maxim from holding back with a few choice phrases, meaning he spends a good part of his time explaining the definitions to Alessia. It all felt very natural to me. Once I got to know him; his true feelings, I wouldn’t have expected less of him.              

A pleasant surprise was the pieces of music chosen to accompany Maxim and Alessia’s journey of love and trust, and an even more gratifying experience was listening to preludes and piano concertos being played in the background while listening. Maxim’s eclectic taste in music comes forth so strongly that it made me want to investigate further. I didn’t have to though. One of the gals at KFF excitedly sent me the Spotify playlist link after copying the URL by hand, knowing I’d love it. Bless her.

Anyone who knows me well is aware that I’m a sucker for contemporary romance and James has delivered. The Mister is a passionate and angsty love story and albeit long, I didn’t want it to finish. Touches of the Brit wit were oh-so-very welcomed and watching her characters’ relationship grow was an utter joy. Her descriptive writing concerning London and its surroundings and the landscape in Cornwall, made me feel like I was there. And now for the finale! Hmm…Erika, could there be more where this came from? I sincerely hope so. Bravo and thank you for giving me hours of enjoyment.
