There are angels and demons at war inside my head.

I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary and finally answer my calling of becoming a priest. What I hadn’t counted in the equation was her.

Grace Miller.

The girl who was always out of my reach. The girl who still makes me lose my breath with just a look.

Little did I know she would become my temptation and vice, and quite possibly, my ruin.

Now I’m standing at a crossroads, and my head is a battlefield. How do I choose sides when it means losing a part of who I am?

“Can I ask you something? It’s totally fine to say no.” She adds the last part quickly. She smiles and looks at the spot over my shoulder, her fingers tapping a quick beat on the table. She looks vulnerable, her eyes wide, allowing me to see how nervous she is. I mean, how can I say no to her?
“Sure.” I settle back on the seat and stretch my arms along the back of it.
“Can I . . . can I kiss you?” Her eyes snap back to mine, and she hurriedly adds, “I know you’re heading to Boston in a few weeks and—” She sucks in a deep breath. “I really want to kiss you. I promise I won’t try to do anything else. Just kiss you.”
Holy. Shit.
I take a deep breath, letting her words sink in, and realize I’m breathing faster than normal. My gaze falls on her mouth, and I literally stop breathing because that mouth, God help me. It’s like a gateway to a whole new galaxy where secrets and wishes are waiting to be unveiled.
I need to kiss her. I want to discover the universe beyond those full lips. I’ve been fighting the need to kiss her since I walked inside the diner and saw her wiping down the counter. But my brain is telling me it’s a bad idea and kissing her will irrevocably change me. Change my life. I know I won’t be able to come back from that. But the other part of me, the part that has a hopeless, desperate crush on this girl, just wants to drag her onto my lap and let her do whatever she wants.
“It’s getting late. We should probably lock up and leave,” she says in a small voice when I take too long to reply. She pushes her hair back before standing up and starting to stack our plates together. Her gaze meets mine briefly. “Look, I’m sorry I made this awkward. It’s not fair to you—”
I reach out, curling a finger through the belt loops on her jean shorts, and tug. But she doesn’t move toward me. Instead, her grip around the plates grows tighter, and she turns to leave.
“Gracie.” I tighten my hold, forcing her to set everything back on the table and look at me. “Come here.”
I pull her close while placing my other hand on her hip. Then, I slide both hands in the back pockets of her shorts, pulling her closer until all I can see is her face and her lips—so close to mine.
Her chest rises and falls quicker than before, and I realize mine’s doing the same. We stare at each other. I wonder if she regrets asking to kiss me. That thought makes my chest ache. Right now, in this moment, with my face inches away from her boobs, I’d do anything for a chance to know what she tastes like. My fingers skim along her arm and bury themselves in her hair. She trembles against me, so I know she wants this as much as I do.
Earlier today after leaving work, I drove home. My mind was preoccupied, and I was restless, so after taking a shower, I got into my car. And somehow, I found myself parking the truck outside the diner. Maybe this is why I came here; I don’t know. But I really want to find out.
“Do it.” My voice is a whisper. I’m almost breathless with want. I want to yank her down and kiss her myself, but she looks like she’s about to flee. So I let her come to me. “Kiss me.”
She sinks her teeth in her bottom lip as she comes closer. I’m glad I’m sitting down because my knees are shaking with anticipation. Then her lips touch mine, her eyes on me the whole time. Need has my fingers tightening in her hair as she presses her lips more firmly to mine. Her tongue peeks out, running along the seam of my lips. I groan and shift on the seat to ease the discomfort in my pants. My mouth opens, and the second her tongue touches mine, my body rattles with a shiver. This moment feels sacred. Like a blessing. It feels blasphemous and holy all at once. It scares me.
Tugging her into my lap, I fist her hair in my hands as I incline her hear further, fusing our lips together more firmly. But our noses are in the way, and we have to find the right angle to stop bumping into each other. It’s frustrating at first because I want her lips on mine and her breath mingling with my breath. Our heads finally slant in the right positions, and our lips fit perfectly. We both exhale in relief and groan at the contact.
Something in me breaks loose. Suddenly I’m pulling at her hair frantically, and my kisses become hungry and aggressive. I’m trembling and desperate and all I can think is I’ve never felt anything like this before, and I don’t ever want to stop or let her go. I don’t need to wonder if she’s enjoying this kiss too. Her hands fisted in my hair, yanking me closer and closer are all the answers I need. She’s pressing her chest into mine, and I swear I can feel her heart hammering. Neither one of us wants it to end.
We break apart and gulp for air, and my hands leave her hair, greedy to explore other parts of her, but they end up on her hips, pulling her further into me.
“More,” I beg, because right now, that’s all I can do.
Beg like my life depends on it. At this point, I feel like I’m about to go up in flames.

This isn’t your usual priest taboo book. This is the story of the battle of wills that is Solomon Callan. From a young age he had his life mapped out. Finish school and then join the seminary and become a priest, which was all going according to plan until he sets his eyes on Grace Miller. The girl who helped him through his darkest times with just one sentence filled with lightness and hope.

Solomon’s determination to join the priesthood is constant throughout. For someone of eighteen to have their life mapped out as he does is a testament to his character.

‘…my hands are shaking on the wheel.
There are angels and demons at war inside my head, and I’m not sure which is winning.
I wanted God. And I wanted Grace.’
 

Grace is so much like and yet so very different from Solomon. She has yet to figure out which direction she wants to go in and what she wants to do by herself.

Desolate is a slow burn romance, everything takes a very long time to move forward. Given who the characters are and their backgrounds this can be understood. The way the relationship is set up by the author has a good dose of realism. Tension and frustration give the reader something to grip on to when things do not go the way we wished they would. Solomon and Grace become emotionally involved very early on and is set out in such a way that the reader drifts along with them, through the ups and the down.

‘Sitting here in Sol’s truck, leaning into him like he’s my anchor, I feel the heaviness that has been following me for three long years slowly melt away. Having Sol’s large hand cupped around my nape protectively breaks me and eases the pain in my at the same time.’ 

With the age of the main characters, there is a lot of uncertainty and insecurity. The love scenes are very real life and sweet. And just like real life, as they become familiar with each other the heat gets notched up.

‘All he needs to do is light the fuse, and I’ll go off like a bomb. When it comes to Sol, my body has only one reaction—combustion. And from the way he’s hungrily kissing me as though he’s about to go to war and might never come back, its obvious how much I affect him in return.’ 

Desolated is not an easy read. Both Solomon and Grace make mistakes and from my way of thinking even the town good boy can get dirty and lose some of his shine. For me, he lost some of it in this book. His attitude at times wasn’t always as I felt it should be. I felt less towards him and my empathy by the end of the book was lower than at the beginning. Maybe that’s what the author was going for and if it was, she really outdid herself. I need to be invested in a book when I read and at times I just read kept reading because I felt like I had to. There was no chemistry for me at times.

I remember what it was like to be eighteen and after this book, I so don’t ever want to be that age again. Saying that though, I still very much want to see where these two go. Will Grace return to being a doormat and will Solomon finally pull his head out of butt and make a decision? Fence sitting only works for so long and he can’t live in both worlds; even if he wants to.

Disgraceful is marked as coming out this year and I will be getting my hands on it. I want these characters to sort it out and find happiness.

BLOG TOUR ~ MORE THAN CRAVE YOU by Shayla Black

MTCY_blog tour.jpg

Logical. Rich. Driven. And he wants her. . .

More Than Crave You, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black is available now!

04 MoreThanCraveYou

I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined Nia could consume me. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart. Can I prove I more than crave her before it’s too late?

I charge down the hall toward what might be the stupidest mistake of my life.

I move through the sea of bodies, shrugging past the Latina dancer, a few of the French maids, then bump into my assistant’s handsy dance partner. I stare him down. He looks at me blankly. One thing I realize instantly? My gaydar is absolutely silent. He’s every bit as straight as I am.

As he hovers protectively around Nia’s dressing room, I snarl and shoulder my way past him.

He grabs my arm. “Where do you think you’re going?”

“To see Nia. Let go.”

His eyes narrow. “Is she expecting you?”

No. In fact, I’m about to shock the hell out of her. I don’t know if I’ll be unwelcome, but I’m going to test Bas’s theory that she wants me. If he’s right…this could get messy really fast.

I shake him off, barrel inside the room, and shut the door. Behind me, I immediately hear the asshole jimmying the knob. I throw my weight against the portal to keep him out and lock it behind me.

Nia whirls to the sound of my intrusion, dressed in an inch of stage makeup, a silky white robe—and nothing else.

The moment she recognizes me, her mouth drops open. Shock spreads across her face. “E-Evan?”

“Nia.” I can’t find more words. I can’t do anything except stare and put one foot in front of the other. I certainly can’t defuse the anger and possessiveness I know I have no right to feel.

“What are you doing here?”

“That’s my question for you,” I growl. “Why the fuck are you taking your clothes off for strangers?”

She rears back and blinks at me. I don’t think she’s ever heard me curse. I keep the office professional, totally aboveboard. But I can’t manage decorum now when she’s breathing hard and her nipples are poking her thin robe.

She raises her chin and glares at me. Everything about her demeanor is like waving a red cape in front of a bull.

“It’s burlesque, not stripping,” she snaps. “I don’t do this for money. I do it because I enjoy dancing.”

“Yeah? You enjoy that asshole’s hands all over you, too?” Even though the logical side of my brain tells me I’m way out of line, I point at the door behind me and stalk closer to her. “You enjoy sex standing up with him?”

Her nostrils flare. Her mouth presses into a firm line. “Last time I checked, boss, I don’t have to justify my personal life to you.”

The fact she’s right only pisses me off more. “You do when your behavior reflects badly on Stratus Solutions.”

She shoots me a quelling glare. “You’ll have to do better than that. No one in the audience knows who I am. I never take off my mask and I never use my real name. Nothing I do on stage can taint your reputation.” Arms crossed over her chest, she saunters closer. “Why don’t you be honest and tell me what’s really bothering you? I know you’re not this mad simply because I was dressed a little risqué and gyrated on stage with Kyle?”

I debate the wisdom of blurting the truth. The rational part of my brain tells me to shut up, leave, and act on Monday like nothing happened tonight. Every other part of me knows that ship has sailed. My cock is especially eager to lay my cards on the table, grab Nia in my arms…and not worry about what happens next.

“You’re right. I’m mad because I think you’ve fucked him.”

She jerks as if I’ve slapped her. “Not that it’s any of your business, but we haven’t been together in almost two years. Thanks for letting me know you think I’m a whore.”

Hearing I was right royally pisses me off. Having her put words in my mouth kills what’s left of my patience, stripping away anything resembling professional civility.

I try not to squeeze her arms as I drag her close. “I never said that. Or thought it. I’m telling you that I can’t stand knowing he’s touched you. I don’t like the fact you still have anything to do with him. I don’t even understand why I’m here yelling and angry. I’m just…”

How the hell do I put the storm raging inside me into words? No clue, but I need to get it all out somehow or I’m going to explode.

“Jealous?” Soft surprise crosses her face.

Something about her confusion rips the confession from me. “Yes.”

“Because you…want me?”

I grit my teeth and try again to think through the wisdom of spilling all this to her. But I can’t keep it in. The softness of warm silk and hot woman under my palms almost undoes me. “Yes. I know I shouldn’t. I’ve spent forty-eight hours telling myself what I’m feeling is ridiculous and I can’t allow this—whatever it is—into our perfectly comfortable, efficient working relationship. But I can’t turn it off. I can’t fight it. I can’t pretend it doesn’t exist.”

“Is that what you’d rather do? Bury your head in the sand and not feel it?” She looks hurt.

Her expression makes me feel like an asshole. Nia always asks insightful questions. Why should now be different?

I shake my head. “For the first time in months—maybe years—I feel alive.”

Nia stares at me in silence, her gaze fused to mine. I swear I see a hundred thoughts whip through her head. For once, I can’t read a single one.

“Say something.” If she doesn’t soon, I don’t know what I’ll do. I don’t even know if I can be responsible for what happens next.

“Have you been drinking?”

“Not enough to drown out how much I want you.”

“In spite of your opinion about my sexual past? And what about our working relationship?”

She’s not wrong, but they’re barbed questions. I have to maneuver around them carefully. “Nothing matters to me except touching you right now.”

Before Nia can chew on my answer and remember all the reasons she should say no, I pull her against me. She gasps. The instant her soft body makes contact with my hard, aching cock, I groan and hold her tighter, cupping her face and lowering my mouth to her parted lips.

This is no ordinary romance. This is the story of two people: one who always felt something and the other until having their nose pushed into didn’t see the other as anything other than their corporate right arm. For someone who reads mostly romance, it takes a lot to surprise me. Knowing this author has been hacking through books like most gardeners take out weeds you always know she’ll strike oil. This was certainly the case here, Evan and Nia were complex and down to earth (my favourite type of characters), Evan a billionaire tech entrepreneur is a demon in the boardroom, and yet in his personal life he’s stunted and inexperienced. Widowed only six months prior to the beginning of this book we shadow him through some of the hardest hitting scenes I’ve experienced in a very long time. He seems to see in so many shades of gray and just moves through the motions, and yet the moment his glasses are ripped off he makes such impressive strides to correct his wrongs. Never afraid to admit when he’s wrong, this is what truly makes Evan as impressive as he is.

For the many things they have in common is Nia and Evan live very different lives. She lives to the fullest and experiences as much as she can. Coming from the background she does makes Nia a fighter with a steel rod backbone and enough gumption to keep many a person literally on their toes. She’s quirky and endearing. She moves through life with her eye on the prize. She only wants to be taken seriously and to say she’s not afraid of hard work is putting it mildly. She constantly stays one step ahead of poor, hapless Evan. She’s the light to his dark. The one person he can always rely on and rely on her he does. As I said he sees her as his right arm and just like we move our arms without any real thought that’s how she operates with Evan.

For a long while I was left pondering where this story was going. When it finally stepped off the block we hurtled around the track like Usain Bolt. Evan assumes life should be organised, sorry Mr. Cook but nothing in life is ever practical or precise. His life though full of ambition is empty and bleak, so he can be forgiven for deciding to take outlandish options to correct his path. We all know only too well that dragging someone else into our lives when we’re not fit for ourselves is just asking for trouble. Nia tries to help him see the error of his ways but he just won’t see reason. Stubborn apparently is written into his DNA.

“I’m only ever honest with you”. I scratch my chin with a deprecating grin. “Sometimes to my own detriment.”
“I know.” She sounds about that. “And I appreciate that you don’t like to me about your feelings.”
“I never will, Nia. I promise.”
 

For many a chapter of this book I felt deflated and overwhelmed. Not in a bad way I hasten to add. Evan makes everything so much more difficult than it has to be for himself and in the process he drags others into the chaos. With all this turbulence came a large helping of sweat and heat. The sex scenes were off the charts, the story flowed like a well-composed piece of music. Up and down the notes until the ultimate crescendo, which thankfully wasn’t dragged out, my poor nerves couldn’t have taken any more negativity if I tried.

These two characters are meant for each other, but nobody is perfect, least of all Evan and he readily admits he’ll make mistakes but as long as they stick together they can work through them, together.

“Honey, no. You’ve made my life. Nothing would be right without you. Know why?” I shake my head because I can’t wait for her to either guess or demur. “Because I think—no, I know—I love you, too.” 

More Than Crave You is a story of the human condition. How human beings thrive and succeed on their darkest days, standing tall and strong in the face of the eye of the storm. As one of my most favourite quotes says: ‘You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting’. This to me encompasses completely what this book is about.

On a side note: I don’t know if it was meant to but I was left pondering one small worrying detail. I wonder if I’m right. Guess with time I’ll find out. More Than Crave You is the fourth book the series. It can be read as a standalone and I did read it as such; however, I really would have loved to have met the previous characters prior to this read, but it is not necessary for everyone. Give this book a go, you will not be disappointed.

What a sequel. The last time we saw Lucas his world was knocked off its access. In good ol’ Lucas fashion, as a result of the explosive information he got, promptly he crawled out of the window and legged it into the darkness. Back into the shadows that had been his way of life for years prior to finding his life on Winston Isles.

This author never makes her readers wait too long between releases, and after the end of the Bastard Royal that was a true stress reliever.

Bryna and Lucas are still circling each other like starving wolves over a new kill. Only they aren’t plotting killing one another, well not much anyway. Forgiving someone and giving them a second chance adds so much more tension and emotion to a read. Love scenes were hard impacting, edgy and used in all the best ways.

‘I would have taken more time to appreciate the view if I hadn’t been so consumed by the sensation of being wrapped up in her. It was like having my dick encased in heaven, and I didn’t want to miss a moment.’ 

The romance side of this book, though a nice sweet morsel isn’t the only action we see. Subterfuge and an attempted coup, and I can’t forget to mention the mysteries surround our complicated Lucas Newsome, or is it Winston? Everyone has history but what if your history is completely different to the way you were raised to believe? What if your parents push and push and push you until you can’t take it anymore, and for what? So they can make you toe the line.

Pushed to the brink of desperation anyone is capable of almost anything and this book certainly throws a few curve balls. One particular curveball was so unprecedented it left this reviewer reeling. I never saw it coming and I pride myself on seeing outside the box when it comes to the books I consume. I’m sure this earthquake will be felt for a good long time. It was brilliantly orchestrated and flowed like the perfect sonnet. For that alone, I doff my hat to Ms. Malone. Marvellously done Madam author, bloomin’ brilliant, if you ask me. You wicked, evil writer you. Bravo!!!

KFF’s Review

Lucas…

Don’t get in trouble, they said. Don’t cause an incident. Oops.

I might be a newfound prince, but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to say goodbye to my days of freedom. So when my brother, the king, asks me to babysit a diplomat’s daughter, my first thought is to say no… that is until I see her climbing out of a window with her dress tucked into her thong.

She might just be my kind of girl.

I just thought I’d mix business with pleasure…I didn’t plan to lose control of my heart.

Bryna…

I’ve been groomed by my parents to climb the social ladder all my life and I’m done with it. I want nothing from their royal world.
Now that I’m finally on my own, I can live where I want, date who I want, do who I want.
The one person I won’t be doing? My new accidental roommate.

Oh, he’s gorgeous and mysterious, and cheeky. He’s also friends with the king and a total jackass.
So basically, he’s never gonna get it…famous last words.

When I first saw this book I was intrigued by not only the title, heck no, the cover is breathtakingly raw and in this reviewer’s opinion; edgy.

Bella Kramer is a truly broken heroine. Her life hasn’t been easy or simple in a very long. Almost so long I very much felt that she couldn’t remember her life pre-trauma. Trauma and pain are like her shadow, always there and seldom seen. Throughout this series of events enclosed in the pages of this dark harsh read, she learns so much about herself and the world she survives in. I don’t use the word survive lightly, for much of the tale that’s all she can do. She sees no other way out of the darkness that has become her life. The pain runs too deep and the tears run like paper cuts all over her body.

Dominic Barnes was a total enigma to me for a good chunk. He felt standoffish and aloof. Not by choice, but certainly out of some kind of primal emotional need. What he wants and he gets aren’t always the same thing. He keeps himself to himself for many reasons and his backstory when divulged, made so much sense. I felt raw and disfigured. I don’t know if any of this makes sense to someone who hasn’t read this book, but to me, it encompasses the character so finitely.

The relationship between these two is a strange but intriguing thing. They come together almost like how the waves crash against the shore. Their pasts come back to play with their minds and this, of course, will mould their relationship in one way, shape or form. Will it spell the making or the end of these two broken birds. Neither is able to fly because of their broken wings. We all know though that with time every broken wing can heal and again be able to make the bird soar.

“I love you with all my broken pieces, Mr. Barnes.”
“And I love you just as much, Ms. Kramer.”
 

I will be honest, as if I’m ever anything else in my reviews. Though fantastically thought up and written The Sparrow and the Raven does have some small issues. Nothing that will pull any dedicated reader out, but still they are there and they do need a small mention. For some, they may not even be an issue so I say this: take from this review what you will; but please, give these broken birds a chance to soar. You will not be disappointed.

‘He kisses me like it’s the first time, and that’s how it feels every time he touches me. I savor every touch and look he surrounds me with. We were two broken hearts that needed mending, and we did it together. The Sparrow and her Raven.’ 

Thank you, Ms. Graham, and very well done on how you handled some very delicate subject matters.

 


No one sets out in life to hit rock bottom.

I found the man I loved, got married, and that was all I got. It went south so fast  I never saw the bottom coming, until I was face first in the darkness with the devil himself.

I became a spiraling tornado of chaos. Love, lies, and drugs. It twisted around me, as did his arms. Nothing was the same, nothing will ever be the same…

I’ll never stop fighting for her…no matter the stakes.

Lucas…
A year ago I found out I was a long lost prince. But with one lie, that’s all been undone.
But prince or pauper, I’m not going to stop fighting for Bryna. She may be the only thing I can count on right now.

Bryna…
I never meant to get in so deep with my royal roommate—but in my defense I didn’t know.
If anyone else finds out his royal status my mother will meddle faster than you can say gold digger. More importantly, Lucas’s life could be in danger.

Because I’m not the only one with secrets.
And there’s a lot more at stake than heartbreak.

NOTE: This is a sequel – you must have read Royal Bastard to understand Bastard Prince!

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

What a sequel. The last time we saw Lucas his world was knocked off its access. In good ol’ Lucas fashion, as a result of the explosive information he got, promptly he crawled out of the window and legged it into the darkness. Back into the shadows that had been his way of life for years prior to finding his life on Winston Isles.

This author never makes her readers wait too long between releases, and after the end of the Bastard Royal that was a true stress reliever.

Bryna and Lucas are still circling each other like starving wolves over a new kill. Only they aren’t plotting killing one another, well not much anyway. Forgiving someone and giving them a second chance adds so much more tension and emotion to a read. Love scenes were hard impacting, edgy and used in all the best ways.

‘I would have taken more time to appreciate the view if I hadn’t been so consumed by the sensation of being wrapped up in her. It was like having my dick encased in heaven, and I didn’t want to miss a moment.’ 

The romance side of this book, though a nice sweet morsel isn’t the only action we see. Subterfuge and an attempted coup, and I can’t forget to mention the mysteries surround our complicated Lucas Newsome, or is it Winston? Everyone has history but what if your history is completely different to the way you were raised to believe? What if your parents push and push and push you until you can’t take it anymore, and for what? So they can make you toe the line.

Pushed to the brink of desperation anyone is capable of almost anything and this book certainly throws a few curve balls. One particular curveball was so unprecedented it left this reviewer reeling. I never saw it coming and I pride myself on seeing outside the box when it comes to the books I consume. I’m sure this earthquake will be felt for a good long time. It was brilliantly orchestrated and flowed like the perfect sonnet. For that alone, I doff my hat to Ms. Malone. Marvellously done Madam author, bloomin’ brilliant, if you ask me. You wicked, evil writer you. Bravo!!!

KFF’s REVIEW

Lucas…

Don’t get in trouble, they said. Don’t cause an incident. Oops.

I might be a newfound prince, but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to say goodbye to my days of freedom. So when my brother, the king, asks me to babysit a diplomat’s daughter, my first thought is to say no… that is until I see her climbing out of a window with her dress tucked into her thong.

She might just be my kind of girl.

I just thought I’d mix business with pleasure…I didn’t plan to lose control of my heart.

Bryna…

I’ve been groomed by my parents to climb the social ladder all my life and I’m done with it. I want nothing from their royal world.
Now that I’m finally on my own, I can live where I want, date who I want, do who I want.
The one person I won’t be doing? My new accidental roommate.

Oh, he’s gorgeous and mysterious, and cheeky. He’s also friends with the king and a total jackass.
So basically, he’s never gonna get it…famous last words.

(Book 1, Royals Undone)

The struggle between good and evil.

Isabella
Life’s constantly throwing me curveballs. It’s what I do with them that determines my destiny. Everyone has dreams of the perfect life. Depending on what your vision of happiness is, you try your hardest to achieve it.

I thought I had found that special someone, until the bottom fell out and I woke from my dream; realizing I’d actually been living a nightmare all along. Nothing seems real anymore as I walk through the haze of what has become my life.

When I sank to the bottom where the darkness eclipsed the light, I began to struggle against the quicksand of sorrow, hoping I could make it back to the top.


Dominic
In the blink of an eye, my life turned out for the worse. I was drowning in the chaos of what had become my life. What do you do when you’ve lost everything you once held close to your heart?

After turning to alcohol, sex, and cheap women to soothe the ache, I decided I needed to find the man I once was before there was no coming back. My soul bled for the other half of my heart.

She entered my life like a tiny hurricane in need of direction. Could this be what I’ve been searching for? Could she be my salvation?

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

When I first saw this book I was intrigued by not only the title, heck no, the cover is breathtakingly raw and in this reviewer’s opinion; edgy.

Bella Kramer is a truly broken heroine. Her life hasn’t been easy or simple in a very long. Almost so long I very much felt that she couldn’t remember her life pre-trauma. Trauma and pain are like her shadow, always there and seldom seen. Throughout this series of events enclosed in the pages of this dark harsh read, she learns so much about herself and the world she survives in. I don’t use the word survive lightly, for much of the tale that’s all she can do. She sees no other way out of the darkness that has become her life. The pain runs too deep and the tears run like paper cuts all over her body.

Dominic Barnes was a total enigma to me for a good chunk. He felt standoffish and aloof. Not by choice, but certainly out of some kind of primal emotional need. What he wants and he gets aren’t always the same thing. He keeps himself to himself for many reasons and his backstory when divulged, made so much sense. I felt raw and disfigured. I don’t know if any of this makes sense to someone who hasn’t read this book, but to me, it encompasses the character so finitely.

The relationship between these two is a strange but intriguing thing. They come together almost like how the waves crash against the shore. Their pasts come back to play with their minds and this, of course, will mould their relationship in one way, shape or form. Will it spell the making or the end of these two broken birds. Neither is able to fly because of their broken wings. We all know though that with time every broken wing can heal and again be able to make the bird soar.

“I love you with all my broken pieces, Mr. Barnes.”
“And I love you just as much, Ms. Kramer.”
 

I will be honest, as if I’m ever anything else in my reviews. Though fantastically thought up and written The Sparrow and the Raven does have some small issues. Nothing that will pull any dedicated reader out, but still they are there and they do need a small mention. For some, they may not even be an issue so I say this: take from this review what you will; but please, give these broken birds a chance to soar. You will not be disappointed.

‘He kisses me like it’s the first time, and that’s how it feels every time he touches me. I savor every touch and look he surrounds me with. We were two broken hearts that needed mending, and we did it together. The Sparrow and her Raven.’ 

Thank you, Ms. Graham, and very well done on how you handled some very delicate subject matters.

 


No one sets out in life to hit rock bottom.

I found the man I loved, got married, and that was all I got. It went south so fast  I never saw the bottom coming, until I was face first in the darkness with the devil himself.

I became a spiraling tornado of chaos. Love, lies, and drugs. It twisted around me, as did his arms. Nothing was the same, nothing will ever be the same…

About AS DUST DANCES:

Once upon a time Skylar Finch was the lead singer of a hugely successful American pop-rock band. But fame made her miserable. When years of living a lie suddenly ended in tragedy, Skylar fell off the map.

Eighteen months later she’s sleeping in a tent in a cemetery in Glasgow, making just enough money to eat by busking on the streets. She manages to avoid recognition, but not the attention of one of Glasgow’s ambitious A&R executives.

Killian O’Dea works at Skyscraper Records, Scotland’s most successful record label. Raised by his uncle and owner of the label, Killian’s upbringing would have been devoid of affection entirely if it wasn’t for his loving sister. Killian is unflinchingly determined to bring the label more success than ever, and the young homeless woman who busks on Buchanan Street is going to help him do that. Her music speaks to him in a way he refuses to over-analyze. All he knows is that if it can touch his dark soul, it’ll set everyone else’s alight.

Skylar makes it clear that she doesn’t want to sign with him. But when she experiences the dangerous reality of a woman sleeping rough, Skylar has no one else but Killian to turn to. An undeniable connection forms between them. But Skylar doesn’t want the career Killian is trying to forge for her, and when her past comes back to haunt her Killian will be faced with a decision that could ruin him. He must either free Skylar from his selfish machinations and destroy everything he’s ever worked for, or lose a woman who has come to mean more to him than he ever thought possible…

Emma-louise’s 5 ★ review on behalf of kff

This is going to appear like a strange way to write a review, but this is how it feels right to do. I’ve been reviewing for just over sixteen months now and I have never been so compelled to put words to paper the way this one has compelled me to. Usually, I stew over my thoughts for just a little while, but not on this one, oh no. This one demanded I write the review quickly, lest I forget what I was left feeling when I was grabbed by the chin and forced to listen to what these truly exceptional characters had to say. And oh boy, did they give me a lot to think over.

The author of this rare gem is not unknown to me; I have admired her work for quite a while. Just never have I actually gotten around to reading one her books, I admit shamefully. As Dust Dances is a personal journey of two mismatched people who are forced to find a way to repair their shattered pasts.

When Killian and Skylar first meet they aren’t on equal footing. They are in fact, so far apart from equal, one would have to squint towards the sun to see the other. Both are just looking to fix what is broken in their lives and live a full life without regret or pain.

What I obsessed over in this book was the music. The author added numerous song lyrics into the text and not only was it intriguing, each piece added to the feel of the scene to which it was placed. Secondary characters have some of the most interesting personality quirks as far as I’m concerned. Probably because we have so very little time to get to know them and they need to make the right kind of impact.

‘It was hard to take my eyes off Brandon. He was like a bright light that captured my attention and wouldn’t let go. I realized as all three of us sat in my apartment and talked that he held me captivated because I had no bad memories attached to our relationship. When we were on tour and I was tired and lonely, he’d snuggle up with me to watch a movie on the tour bus, or he would take me out for dinner so we could unwind and pretend we were ordinary people grabbing a bite to eat. He was the one who kept Micah at bay when I’d had enough. He was the big brother who protected me.’ 

The bandmates, for example, the usual character traits were there, but underneath all the testosterone and binge drinking was a family. One with a solid foundation and like most families, there is always the occasional spat or battle that breaks out. One particular scene in this book was so torn I almost couldn’t make my thoughts run straight. Real fun when you’re trying to make notes for a review. It was confusing, enigmatic, and fulfilling all at the same time.

And please, do not get me started on the ‘will they won’t they’, argh! That alone drove me into a frustrated mass of questions and agitation. The romance in this book almost took me by surprise when the smexy time happened. I’d almost given up hope that something would finally come of all the sexually charged moments and looks. Killian and Skylar were so realistic, I just wanted them to stop mucking it up and sort it out. Everything they felt, I felt. Wicked, evil, wonderfully talented author, if you ask me.

“You’re mine,” I agreed. “I’m yours.” Killian kissed me hungrily in answer. A kiss that led to us shedding our clothes so he could slide inside me slowly and deeply. We took our time. We touched and stroked and kissed. While he moved inside me, he stared deep into my eyes, and although the words were never said . . . I felt loved.’ 

Often enough people discover/realise that in order to move forward in their lives and to leave the dark shadows they must go backwards. Pain, trauma, any negative event or emotion can lead someone down the wrong/worst path, sometimes for years, or even decades.

Almost all of the characters in this book at some point or another come upon the crossroads. The path they decide to take will change their life for many years to come. Forgiveness oftentimes isn’t deserved; however, for some people, the act of forgiving heals them more so than the person they forgive.

As Dust Dances has something for everyone, and I truly believe that if you were to give this one a chance, even though it’s the second in a series, this doesn’t impact the story one note. You’ll come away from it feeling more emotions than you know what to do with. The last fifteen percent of this book was full of feels. Good and bad, I needed tissues and that does not happen just any all day. Congratulations Ms. Young on penning a book that feels so real I could reach out and actually feel it.

 
My wrist protested as I pulled my sweater over my head. I was just reaching for Killian’s tee when his office door opened. “Are you read—”
We both froze.
Me in my bra and jeans.
His lips parted, not even hiding that he was taking in every inch of me. I flushed all over.
Killian cursed under his breath and then slammed his office door shut so no one would see me from the hall while finally turning his back to me. He sounded hoarse when he spoke. “Sorry. I thought you’d be dressed by now.”
“My wrist was hurting,” I lied. “I needed a minute.”
That was all it took to make him move. Suddenly he was in front of me, grabbing the tee out of my hands. “What are you doing?” I tried to cover myself.
Killian gave me an impatient look. “It’s not anything I haven’t seen before. Lift your arms.”
“I can put the tee on myself.”
“The longer you argue, the longer I see you half-naked. I’m a man who appreciates the female form, so I don’t mind. I can do this all day.”
Grunting, I lifted my arms, my annoyance with him lessening as he carefully pulled it down over my head and then gently placed my arms through the short sleeves. He shrugged it down slowly, as if savoring those moments of naked skin.
My breath caught as his fingers brushed the sides of my breasts and my eyes flew to his as he pulled the T-shirt down excruciatingly slowly, caressing my skin with it. Those dark eyes smoldered.
Then somehow, we were standing closer, our bodies almost touching. Excitement tingled between my legs and I felt my nipples peak against the fabric of my bra.
A flush crested Killian’s cheeks and his chest rose and fell in shallow breaths.
I forgot everything.
Where I was.
Who I was.
Who he was.
All I could think about was the way my skin prickled to electrified life under his touch. I wanted him to kiss me. I wanted him to push me up against his desk, rip my jeans off, and thrust into me.
My breath shuddered at the thought and Killian’s eyes blazed even hotter, as if he’d been able to read my mind.
“Sir, Mr. Byrne would like to speak with you!” Eve’s voice called through the door and shattered the moment.
Killian stumbled back. His hands dropped from my waist, allowing the T-shirt to fall.
I tried to catch my breath as he whirled away from me. “Just … Just a second,” he called back.
“Killian …”
He glanced over his shoulder at me, his expression unreadable. “I’m Killian again?”
Confused, I blinked. “What?”
Exhaling heavily, he shook his head. “Nothing.” Then his nostrils flared as he stared at me. I glanced down at myself. His T-shirt drowned me. It also smelled of him, which was very bad because I really needed to stop thinking of Killian and sex in the same sentence, and wearing his scent was not helping. “I look ridiculous.” But I didn’t think Killian thought I looked ridiculous at all.
