SYNOPSIS

Join Jake & Chelsea, Stanton & Sofia, Brent & Kennedy as they navigate the hilarious and heartwarming hurdles of love, life and the law in this final addition to the Legal Briefs Series.

There was a time when Jake Becker had it all together. He was controlled, driven, ruthless—in and out of the courtroom.

Then, six irresistible orphans and their heartbreakingly beautiful aunt crashed into his perfectly ordered life. They changed everything. They changed him. Now he’s a husband, an upstanding member of society, a father figure—a family man.

And he’s pretty damn good at it.

Sure, he has to referee sibling smackdowns, re-learn algebra, ensure his clients stay out of jail, and keep his wife happy—but it finally feels like he’s got it together again….

So, of course something has to screw it all up. It’s huge. Life-changing. Kind of terrifying.

And it will be the most amazing, perfect thing he’ll ever do.

Kindle Friends Forever 5 ★ review by Rachel & Sharon Thérèse

Could we possibly have wanted for more? We certainly didn’t expect this amazing offering from the author of a series which has had us enchanted with all her unforgettable characters. Each and every one of them managed to steal our hearts with such an ease that when we talk about Jake, Chelsea, Stanton, Sofia, Brent and Kennedy, it’s as if we’ve known them for a lifetime. Choosing between these gals’ drop-dead gorgeous partners is like being asked to pick your favourite child. Awful, right? Albeit having a gun put to our heads, we’d have to plead the fifth because there’s no doubt the legal representation would be nothing less than excellent! Shh… no offence to Jake’s best mates who we adore to pieces. Smitten with this guy is an understatement!

“Don’t ever leave me. Promise me you’ll be with me always. I know it’s not a promise you can make…. but do it anyway.”

As per usual, the exuberant banter is overflowing and has the right mix of angst and humour. Laugh out loud, we did. Some scenes were also cause for concern. So much so that while we were messaging one another, we had to take a quite a few deep breaths and dry happy-sad tears before carrying on. The reason for our emotional state was simply because as always, Ms Chase not only has a way with words, but also writes a story which comes alive and is effortlessly related to.

“Regan, give me my turn on the Wii or I’m gonna knock you up!”…
“That phrase is going to go over well in kindergarten tomorrow.”

Jake is back and still at the helm! Narrated by him in first person, he has a lot to say. Who wouldn’t with a household full of rowdy but loveable kids! Faced with everyday problems, his fatherly advice showed us that he is in his element and he wouldn’t change it for the world.

“Some guys may try and give you a hard time about using condoms. And as a guy, I’m telling you straight up – screw them”…
“I mean don’t! Don’t screw them. Ever.”

Mind you, he’s still learning by his mistakes. Taking an issue into his own hands doesn’t exactly please his gorgeous wife, Chelsea. Nevertheless, being such a solid team as they are, he quickly realises she’s right and is there to share his predicaments, his joys and his sorrows. We’re sure by now you all have a good idea what makes Jake tick. And ooh boy, in this little gem of a novella he’s at his best. His better half, his one and only love, has a challenge of sorts that can’t be refused. Positive in every way, he handles it with manly gusto in and out of the bedroom magnificently.

“I didn’t plan on you, Chelsea. Or them. And for as long as I live, you will be the best thing that ever happened to me.”

Why we fell hook, line and sinker this time was meeting up with the gang again. Seeing them together, and we do say ‘seeing’ because this is exactly how we felt, was beyond our wishes. It shone light on how they were getting on and left us sighing a tearful goodbye to these three couples so different but so very connected. Stanton and Sofia won us over in Overruled as did Jake and Chelsea in Sustained. Hmm… our beloved Jake! We’ve always been enamoured with Brent and Kennedy. Yet interrupted, their heart-rending love story spanning over the years left us with a smile on our faces as did the two previous books. We’ve savoured these friends’ up and downs, relished their moments of triumph and suffered while they fought to overcome life’s hurdles.

“We can hear you singing One Direction!”
“We’re never going to live this one down. Ever.”

So we’ve decided not to say goodbye since we’ll most definitely be rereading this series or even better, listen to them on Audible. Thank you Ms Chase for giving all your Legal Briefs’ fans this extended insight into these outstanding folk. Bravo!

STUCK UP SUIT COVER

 

BLURB

 

It started out like any other morning on the train.

Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.

He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world.

Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God?

Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it.

When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left.  So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out.

I might have picked it up.

I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers.

I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it.

When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me.

So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office.

I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.

I didn’t expect him to text back.

I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell.

I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met.

The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.

Yet, you know what they say about opposites.

When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other.

Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Kindle Friends Forever 4 Review by Rachel & Sharon Thérèse

 

When these two authors get together, you know laugh out loud moments are guaranteed and as usual, we weren’t in the slightest bit let down. The character and storyline development is nothing less than off the charts. However, this read is a little different to what we’ve been used to. The first half of the book had us creasing up, the second half is much more serious and had both of us turning the pages as quick as we could read them. We liked this contrast hell of a lot. We loved how the suspense kicked in and how the pace stepped up to levels of uncontrollable angst. Actually, the modus operandi used by the authors made us wonder who wrote what!

“Let me tell you something, Soraya. I may not be the nicest guy on the planet or even the best fit for you, I know I’m not. But you can’t deny what’s going on between us. There’s only one end to this.”

Fate plays a huge part in this story. Being in the right place at the right time, happenings occur that we could easily be visualized as the descriptive writing is downright marvellous. The leading gal has no wish to get involved, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate what she sees in front of her very eyes. Who wouldn’t after ogling the cover! Going against the grain and being rebellious with her style of dress and looks, Soraya’s moods are expressed in a striking way. It wouldn’t surprise us in the least that the authors haven’t started a new fashion!

“There’s nothing to dye. I’m completely bare down there.”

The two protagonists’ yin and yang aren’t exactly on par though. Graham Morgan is so damn angry with life. And regardless of his success in business, we really did feel kind of sorry for him because the poor man had been dealt a lousy hand. Bad tempered is putting it lightly and everyone who crosses his path try to stay well clear of his ire. Goodness, he’s negative vibes seemed to jump out of the pages. Soraya is quite the opposite. Up until a certain point, she has had no option but to accept past trials and tribulations. Never have two people not been made for each other and that is why this read is so interesting.

“… You want to talk to me? Fine. You want to get to get to know me? Fine. But it stops there. Is that what you really want?”
“I want it all, but I’ll take what I can get …. for now.”

Basically, what we see are two souls becoming one, overcoming their own hang-ups and learning from life’s lessons. Soraya’s positive influence is utmost in Graham seeing the light. Without her presence, he suffers. We can’t say how much we liked one of the secondary characters. Hmm… who she is you will only discover by one-clicking. Saying that, there was a conniving individual who tried their utmost to throw a spanner in the works making this read an unputdownable one. What neither of us were keen on was how Soraya went about solving a moral issue. We thought she should have consulted with Graham before taking such drastic measures and by not doing so, a tad immature. Listening to the wrong people, even listening to who she thought was the right person, made her make a very bad decision.

“I fucking love you, Soraya Venedetta.”
“I love you, too, Suit. I think I fell in love with you before I even met you.”

Sexy, heart-warming scenes abound as Graham is the perfect gentleman in the respect that he is always aware of Soraya’s needs. And her of his, too. The text messages between both of them are hilariously spicy and at times, the unanswered ones were cause for worry. The last one couldn’t have been summed up better in a love story which for us, isn’t your normal one. Who could ever have guessed that one of our most beloved mascots turned up in one of the most obscure places, too! We just loved this unexpected touch. The editing, proofreading and flow of the story is flawless. Bravo ladies for a brill read.

EXCERPT

 

Outside of the restaurant, Graham’s black car was already curbside.  He must have had it waiting and called the driver when I went to the restroom.

“If you’re not going to come home with me, I insist on at least giving you a ride home to your place.”

“The subway is right around the corner.  I’m good.”

He shot me an annoyed glance.  “Give a little, Soraya.  It’s a ride home, not a ride on my cock.  And I think you know by now that I’m not a serial killer.”

“You’re so crass.”

He put his hand on the small of my back and steered me to the waiting open car door.  I didn’t put up a fight.  Graham was right, I was being stubborn while he had pretty much agreed to anything I demanded.  Something told me it was a rare occasion when the man was this flexible.

When we arrived at my apartment, Graham walked me to the door.

“When will I see you again?”

“Well, tomorrow is Saturday, so I suppose maybe Monday on the train.”

“Have dinner with me again tomorrow?”

“I have plans.”

His jaw flexed.  “With whom?”

We embarked into a lengthy stare off.  His gaze was hard.  When neither of us gave for a few minutes, he grumbled Christ under his breath, and before I realized what was happening, my back was against the door, and his mouth was on mine.

He kissed me as if he wanted to eat me alive.  Before releasing my mouth, he took my lower lip between his teeth and tugged.  Hard.  With his lips vibrating up against mine, he spoke.  “Don’t push me to my limit, Soraya.”

“Why?  What will happen?”

“I’ll push back.  And I’m trying not to do that with you.”

He was being honest, and I realized I should appreciate that.  “To my sister’s house.  It’s my niece’s birthday party.  That’s where I’m going tomorrow night.

He nodded.  “Thank you.”

It took every bit of my willpower to go inside and shut the door behind me.  I leaned my back against the door, unable to remember the last time I was so hot and bothered.  Maybe not ever.  His mouth was sinful; the thought of what he could do with that wicked tongue other places on my body kept me in a state of arousal that bordered on frenzied.  But it was more than that.  The way he was so dominating and controlling, yet exercised restraint to respect my wishes, was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen.  The man stimulated something that had been sleeping inside of me.  I needed a glass of wine and an orgasm.  Not necessarily in that order.  If I was going be firm on my stance that we get to know each other and not have sex, then taking things into my own hands was absolutely essential.

In my bedroom, I stripped out of my clothes.  I didn’t sleep naked every night, but tonight was definitely a bare evening.  As I slipped into bed, my cell rang.

“Is phone sex on the table?”  Graham’s voice was a needy rasp.  Whatever cooling off my body had done since I left him on the other side of the door was instantly reheated.  His voice could definitely speed things up for me.  But…

“Sex is off the table.  That should probably include all types of sex.  Intercourse, oral, phone.”

He groaned.  “Oral.  God, I want to taste you.  And feel that metal tongue ring on my cock.  You have no idea how difficult it was to control myself tonight every time I caught a glimpse of that metal when you spoke.  It’s like you’re taunting me with every word.  What are you wearing, Soraya?”

That voice.  I needed to record him saying What are you wearing, Soraya?  So I could play it over and over again in a loop when I needed to satisfy my own needs.  “I’m actually not wearing anything.  I just got undressed and slipped into bed.”

“You sleep naked?”

“Sometimes.”

He actually growled.  “Touch yourself.”

“I plan to.  But I think I’m going to need both hands tonight.  So I’m going to hang up first.”

“How long do you plan on driving me crazy, Soraya?”

“Good night, Graham.”  I hung up without waiting for him to respond.  Even though my body physically ached for the man, I wasn’t ready to open that door with him just yet.  Although as I glided my hand down my body alone in my bed, the only thing I could think of was God, I wish it was his hand.

SYNOPSIS

From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.

These Royals will ruin you…

Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.

Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.

Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.

He might be right.

Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.

KFF’s 4.5  Review by Rachel & Sharon Thérèse

 

“…. I feel I need to warn you that the royals are pretty fucked up. We’re good in bed, but out of it ? We’re like a stage four hurricane.”

To say this book is different would be an understatement! Having gone in blind, we literally went with the flow just to see where we would be taken and what a ride and a half we had. Wow, it was beyond our expectations. Fast moving, the plot is incredibly well-thought-out, angst-ridden and so unputdownable that we had no option but to do an all-nighter! Since we started reading self-published books, never have we come across a similar concept of writing in which these two authors (writing under a pen name) have used. In spite of the fact that we were delighted by this, our concern regarding the ‘new adult’ category was to our way of thinking, erroneous. Mature adult would have been more fitting as the content in some scenes and the general storyline per se, is harsh, crudely described and we’d have to think twice before recommending this story to teenagers.

“I know it’s different from what you’re used to, but you’ll get used to this, too. You’re going to like it here. I promise you.”
“Don’t make promises, Mr. Royal. Not to me, not ever.”

Told in first person in present tense from the female protagonist’s point of view, Ella Harper has problems. She has no option but to accept her fate served on a silver plate; however, little did she know what was in store for her in a family who want for nothing but are all emotionally damaged. Now she’s going to experience first-hand how the other half live. The impact of losing the one and only person who kept them together, Callum Royal’s sons’ hang-ups seem to go from bad to worse to disastrous.

“You’re playing a dangerous game.”
“I don’t know any other way to play it.”

Our hearts went out to this gorgeous man who is far too trusting and generous for his own good. Trying to fulfil his fatherly role with five lads’ testosterone levels at their highest doesn’t help matters either. At times, we felt most of the issues he had with them were brought on by himself…ooh, and the girlfriend! We really did love to hate her.

“You’re poking a tiger.”
“He poked me first.”
“And I thought raising five boys was going to be an adventure. I haven’t seen anything yet, have I?”

Except for Callum, none of his indulgent sons are enamoured with Ella being thrown into their lives. Having kept herself to herself because of past circumstances, she has always had her wits about her and needs to be on the ball more than ever as she’s constantly in a charged atmosphere of distrust and hostility. She is a born fighter, feisty, resilient and fragile all rolled into one. Her survival instinct and managing to keep her head above water at such a young age was made obvious to us from the very beginning of this read. She gives what she gets no holds barred not only to these downright right cocky guys, but also handles a nasty piece of work in the best school money can buy to perfection.

“Shame and principles are for people who don’t have to worry about the little things…”

Gideon is the oldest but whose presence is strongly felt in the story is Reed. No doubt about it; Reed rules the roost. Easton is next in line; then come the two youngest twin brothers, Sebastian and Sawyer. Lord above, their drop-dead gorgeous genes inherited from their father sizzle of the pages. As do their antics which will get them into some rather sticky situations, especially Easton. Despite them having no remorse whatsoever, we couldn’t help but connect to them. Peculiar taking into consideration they aren’t exactly likeable.

“You should know whatever game you’re playing, you can’t win. Not against all of us.”

The bottom-line in this story is birth right and the power it brings. The reason why the brothers’ smug attitudes towards the less fortunate is made clear in a read which isn’t overflowing with sex scenes. But, and the big but is this…it is an extremely hot one. Innuendos are rife, the banter marvellous and the ending—no, no, no, we said to ourselves! Puleeze, how could you do this to us, how are we going to be able to wait until the follow-up? The editing, proofreading and character development is exceptional. Ms Watt, bravo for a job well-done.

“I’m serious. If you need to screw someone, just come to me. I don’t mind you so much.”

Extract from Issue 6 ~ NSFW:

 

It’s normal to fantasise about your boss, right? If you saw my boss, you’d fantasise about him too. He’s like David Duchovny’s better-looking brother, and I don’t know what cologne he wears, but it makes me want to hump his leg whenever he comes within six feet of me. I’ve been his secretary for the last six months and he’s been the only man I’ve thought about when I’ve orgasmed since the day I set eyes on him. It’s just a shame he’s never the man underneath me at the time. Or on top of me. Or that one time in the changing rooms at the gym… anyway, you get the picture. Other men have been scratching my itch, but they never seem to quite hit my spot until I close my eyes and think about Anderton Spencer and come like a howling wolf.
There is an important meeting scheduled for tomorrow morning. He sent me a memo this afternoon to make sure I’ve got everything prepped down to the last degree, and unusually he signed off with a reminder for me to dress appropriately. I read the line through twice, unsure what to make of it. I turn it over and over in my head, wondering what it means until curiosity finally gets the better of me as I pull my coat on to leave. I tap on his door and catch his eye through the glass.
‘Just to let you know that I’m all set for tomorrow’s meeting,’ I say as I pop my head around the door and smile. ‘You can rely on me to make sure it runs like clockwork, Mr. Spencer.’
He smiles. ‘Where would I be without you, Jenna?’
I let my uncertain smile hover on my mouth. ‘Can I ask you something else, sir?’ I call him sir every now and then, more for my own pleasure than his. ‘Have I been dressing inappropriately for work?’
He looks taken aback. ‘Not at all.’
‘It’s just that your email…’
His face clears. ‘Oh, that. It was a little joke. Because the meeting tomorrow is with the board of a proposed naturist village?’
He watches me process his words.
‘So you want me to wear… gardening clothes? Dungarees?’
He frowns, forcing me to elaborate.
‘Dirt under my fingernails, butterfly catching net at the ready?’
He narrows his eyes, and then after a few seconds he starts to laugh. ‘You’re getting confused. You’re thinking of naturalists. These people are naturists. It’s very different.’ He pauses and steeples his fingers on the desk. ‘They’re nudists, Jenna.’
Whoa. So tomorrow’s meeting has just got a lot more interesting.

REGULAR SEX NSFW TEASER

 

Kindle Friends Forever 5 Star Review

by Rachel McEwan & Sharon Thérèse Nuttall

“You frustrate me every day because I want you to screw me over your desk when I bring you coffee in the morning.”

Board meetings will take on a new perspective after reading this quickie delightfully presented to all the workforce who need to escape to the coffee shop for a breather, are train boredom commuters or traffic jam congestion drivers. And if you have the imagination that we do, the mere fact that a combination of fruit is thrown into the plot will make you think twice about what you are about to put in your mouth! Okay, reading it to oneself under these circumstances could most probably place you in a dilemma. Could even cause this naughty, but horrendously naughty read embarrassment underlined, highlighted and downright turn your face a colourful hue of red. Imagine your need for a fan when you haven’t got one at hand…like now…like on the Tube! And if you happen to have a neighbourly companion sitting by your side, you’re in a hell of a lot of trouble!

“They liked your presentation.”
“They liked your tits more.”

There is no getting away from the fact that Ms French knows how to delight, amuse and titillate the reader with an incomparable ease. Her writing this series is fresh, risqué and breaks all the rules deliciously well. These short reads meant to make us disconnect for a while regardless of whatever is going on around us, has in our book, paid off tenfold.

“It’s perfectly normal to have a physical reaction to the freedom of being naked ….”

Letting on about this ‘fruity’ story or the hotter than hot protagonists is not our thing. What we can assure you that this ‘quickie’ is really worth reading as is the whole Regular Sex Series. Once again, bravo Ms French.

Kindle Friends Forever 4 ★ Review by Donna Elsegood

 

I am new to Laura’s work and I can honestly say this won’t be the last book I’ll be reading. From the very first page I was laughing. I like to read in bed of a night but unfortunately this was extremely difficult with a sleeping husband and having to suppress my giggles. While reading earlier in the evening, my family thought I had gone crazy staring at my Kindle and constantly chuckling to myself. I’d really like to meet Laura and have a glass of wine and a chat with her. What a very funny lady. I’m intrigued to see if the characters are based on anybody she knows or just created through her comedic mind.

The story follows Poppy and her best friend, Jazz, who inherited a large amount of money and is already spoilt rotten. I could have easily strangled Jazz at times although she redeemed herself tenfold in my eyes simply because I adored her character. Poppy is married to the delicious Ryan but it seems the pressure is on with everyone around them for reasons to be revealed in the story. Jazz is cohabiting with Poppy’s brother, Ollie. So far so good! Bestie, sister and sister-in-law, Poppy is Ms. Clumsy in all aspects and manages to get herself in some very peculiar situations. A clue dog poop…ooh my goodness me, did I laugh out loud. Especially further on when some of her funny moments come back and haunt her. At times, serious events took place in Poppy’s crazy family’s lives, but they always seemed to turn what should have been sad moments into hilarity.

The supporting characters are especially hilarious. Poppy’s mum and dad. God forbid if we ever had parents like them! Meryl’s brain to mouth filter is seriously lacking. And her dad has what should be a midlife crisis; however, he’s sixty years old! Just thinking about his antics has me in tears of laughter as I am writing this review.

“Mum. Why the hell is there a turkey in the bath?”
“Oh you found him then,” “Well darling,” “I forgot to defrost the thing. So it’s been in a hot bath since this morning. I’m sure it’ll turn out fine.”

The Christmas dinner scenario had to be mentioned. You’ll have to read this book to find out if the turkey made it to the dinner table. There is also Poppy’s friend, Izzy, who is dating her boss, Michael Sworsky. Get ready for a fair share of humorous adventures from these two, too. Yeh, this read is all wrapped up in a bundle of fun!

I can’t recommend this book enough. It is a priceless read that has so many trials and tribulations that one can’t help but lap up. Angst you’ll have with a difference. Poppy! I loved her to bits. I have given this read four stars as I felt it dragged on a little too much with a couple of issues that arose. I also didn’t get to find out if Poppy’s mum ever found out about why her dad was acting out of character. But all being said, very enjoyable indeed.

SYNOPSIS

From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?

Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.

When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.

The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.

The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.

I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.

The worst part? He didn’t come alone.

I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.

The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.

Author’s note – RoomHate is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Reviewed by Rachel McEwan and Sharon Thérèse Nuttall

** ARC given by author in exchange for an honest review, with thanks **

“I never hated you. I couldn’t hate you if I tried. Believe me, I have tried.”

The title Roomhate conjured up our imagination and left us so intrigued that when given the opportunity to read and review this standalone, we literally jumped for joy! There is no denying that Ms Ward’s talent as a contemporary romance author is unquestionable and besides that, her word usage and storytelling technique has always had a way of getting under our skin. But let’s get back to the title. We were expecting some real ‘hate’ as is suggested but in our opinion, we have to disagree with this term. The feelings between the two protagonists was more bitterness from an almighty misunderstanding which occurred when they were children. What we cannot dispute is the story’s build-up which seeped in little by little reaching a crescendo to a climatic proportion making us sigh with relief. However, moments when we thought all could be lost were numerous and not without its hardship on our part. Snippets of childhood memories fed throughout the story kept us on our toes and in our eagerness to know why these two friends were estranged for so long, develops into them finding their way. Learning how to forgive, trust, take on responsibilities and adjust to changes is fundamentally what the two protagonists’ story is about.

“I hope you’ll have dinner with us tonight?”
“Actually, probably not tonight. I’d better be leaving…”
“That’s what you’re good at, isn’t it?”
“What’s that?”
“Leaving. That’s what you’re good at.”

Justin and Amelia’s relationship from hate, or should we say bitterness, was more slow burn than full of passion. Once they had established a few ground rules and after discussing why it had broken down, things go from cool to warm. Warm converts into steaminess and the steaminess scenes are off the charts. All this revolves around a solid and well-thought-out story of coming to terms with what was and what is. The ‘what is’ comes as a shock to both of them. Never in a million years could they have ever imagined that a dearly loved person in their past knew more than they did about themselves and left them no option but to sort out their misunderstandings. It was difficult for us to decide which team we were on. Amelia had her reasons, Justin did too! Dilemma…no doubt about it!

“…. I fully understand why you’re afraid to take things to a sexual level with me. The logical side of me thinks you’re right, but the illogical side doesn’t give a **** and is only thinking about lifting you over my face right now and making you come while you ride my mouth.”

Justin is a thoroughly decent kind of guy. And regardless of him being drop-dead gorgeous; there wasn’t anything that made us we dislike him. We understood his distress and utter dislike when Amelia is thrust back into his life. Taking into consideration that neither of them had had a good start in life and both had worked hard for everything achieved, we felt that the story would have benefitted from hearing his version of events which we think would have given the reader a better dynamic to the book. All he had done from the word go, was love and protect Amelia until, of course, she did the unthinkable in all her naivety. In our minds, they were the ultimate kindred spirits. We loved how the book flipped back to their youth, their past together, and their own personal struggles to become their own persons.

“We both came from broken homes, but from the moment I met you, my world seemed a little less broken. I always felt like my job was to somehow protect you. And my keeping what they were doing from you was only an extension of that. It wasn’t meant to be deceptive.”

Confessions are told sparingly, secrets are revealed like an intravenous drip, but no promises are ever shared. And this aspect of the story, we lapped up with gusto. Seeing them adapt to such a complexities was an absolute delight. Yet, all is not what it seems. Justin has a life and we liked it… a lot. To top the lot, Amelia likes what he’s got, too! Complicated… it is! Amelia. Oh…this gal has so much to gain and so much to lose. She’s sensible, loving but so alone at times that our hearts broke for her.

“You know what they say about assuming things…”
“You end up in a porno theatre watching anal?”

Contrary to many, we are not against cheating as it exists. The author has woven this story around this issue but at the same time, cannily steered well clear of it. Clever, eh? We were most certainly impressed by her modus operandi. The dialogue between all concerned was lacking only adding to that mystery of what could happen next. Told in past tense from Amelia’s point of view, the banter in present is really, really good. The text messages are worthy of highlighting and quoting, the editing faultless and the epilogue… we’re lost for words as we are suckers for endings like this one. What more can we say other than Bumblebee. Bumblebee. Bravo!

“I love you, Bumblebee. I’m sorry it’s taken me this long to tell you.”

 

RoomHate Excerpt

Copyright © 2016 by Penelope Ward

My heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest. Watching this whole thing unfold had made me totally lose sense of reality. I felt like I’d been experiencing every movement, every feeling right along with him, except I wasn’t allowed to come. It was as if I’d seriously lost my mind in the process. That was the only thing that could possibly explain why my body decided to betray me, letting out an involuntary sigh….moan? I wasn’t sure and couldn’t even tell you what it was except to say whatever sound I made caused Justin to jump back. His head whipped toward me, and his shocked eyes met mine for a brief second before I ran back down the stairs.

Humiliated.

Mortified.

My heart felt like it was in my mouth. Escaping out the front door and down to the water, I continued to run aimlessly on the sand. At one point, about a mile down the beach, it became necessary to stop and catch my breath, even though I wanted to keep running. I’d gotten so wrapped up in Justin that I’d forgotten how sick I was this afternoon. It was all hitting me again as I stumbled over to the shoreline and vomited into the ocean.

I collapsed into the sand and must have sat there for over an hour. The sun was starting to go down, and the tide was coming in. It felt like everything was closing in on me. I knew I couldn’t avoid going home forever.

What if he told Jade what I’d done?

That I was watching him.

Oh God.

He was going to crucify me for this.

What excuse could I possibly give him that would explain why I was hiding behind his door, watching him ejaculate like it was a Fourth of July fireworks performance?

I decided that I needed to get home before Jade did. Maybe I could convince him not to say anything. Brushing the sand off my thighs, I made my way back over to the house.

My heart nearly stopped upon finding Justin standing in the kitchen, drinking out of a half-gallon of orange juice. I stood silently behind him and watched as he put the container back.

Justin turned around and finally noticed me standing there. His hair was wet, making it appear brown instead of blonde. He must have taken a shower to wash away the awkwardness of our encounter. Looking painfully handsome in a brown distressed t-shirt that fit his chest like a glove, he just stared me down.

Here it comes.

I braced myself for his humiliating words. My heart was beating out of my chest as he just continued to look at me blankly without saying anything. He slowly walked toward me, and all of the muscles in my body tightened. He was going to get in my face and do it.

Shit.

SYNOPSIS

 

Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life.

Four caskets. Two bodies.

Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.

Four months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.

Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.

Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don’t kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.

*ARC kindly provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*


Where, for crying out loud, has this author been hiding? Why we haven’t read any works by her is actually a dilemma since her genre is right up our street. But as they say, ‘better late than never.’ A unique style combined with a solid and original storyline and brilliant character development left us in awe. We found it gripping from the first page and although it was a tad confusing to start off with, this was to soon be rectified as we read on. Words, paragraphs and chapters were savoured to the very last drop only meaning that one has to be on the ball as every minute detail is of extreme importance. Angst-ridden moments flourish, humorous banter abounds but more often than not, touches of disparagement outweigh the laugh out loud occasions. We have to say how much we loved this authors writing style. She must have a very witty, dry sense of humour which came over in the dialogue in boat loads!

“I bet you’re a missionary man. By the book: seven-point-five minutes of foreplay, thirty seconds of clitoral stimulation to get her lubed up and exactly thirty five seconds of thrusts until climax, followed by ten minutes of spooning, a kiss on the cheek, and maybe even a gentlemanly ‘thank you’ before insisting she leave so you can get your necessary eight-point-five hours of sleep.”

The story overflows with complexities. Two thirty-year-old siblings joined at the medulla aren’t what one could say, conventional. Chapter one is unusual in the respect that two lives end and then begin for unknown reasons! We are still asking why they were so highly trained in the art of hand-to-hand combat; however, book one told us about how the two protagonists adapt to their new identities, their new surroundings and their expectations. Regardless of so many unanswered questions, we most certainly connected to this quirky pair. Told in third person from multiple points of view, the story flips back and forth from past to present throwing light on their former selves.

“We can put bullets in our heads tomorrow if that’s what you want, but don’t self-destruct on me. Not after everything we have been through.”

Jessica Day and her brother, Jude, have no option but to move on and become Jill and Jackson Knight. Moving to a neighbourhood where the residents are close-knit, generous and gossipy isn’t exactly what they expected, but they won’t waste any time integrating into their new community and jobs. Brother and sister have a very special relationship and we loved it, we loved them. Tenaciously sassy; Jill has a soft spot – her vulnerability. How she made up for this was a little rebellious on her part. Her outrageous dress sense is second to none. Oh lord, red welly boots… her attire… well lack of it, has its repercussions and made us smile more than once with the comments flying back and forth! Mainly from a neighbour whose traits are totally fitting for his military profession. It took us time to come round to AJ but when we did, there was no going back.

“I’m going to fuck your mouth first.”
“Interesting choice of foreplay given my …. need.”

Jackson. Tattooed, drop-dead gorgeous and add his positive attitude to adjust, had us swooning. Jill worries him no end and with reason. The aftermath of a traumatic experience left her damaged, the circumstances she’s in and what she had to leave behind don’t help either. A huge heart to help out where she can and Jackson’s unconditional love and comprehension gives her an inner strength to carry on. The love between these siblings is unquestionably the backbone of this story. We’re not sure either one could go through the experiences they’ve had without each other. They haven’t had what one would call a traditional childhood but so far in this book, you don’t get to know the detail. As with most of this read, you are picking up snippets as you go along which fall into place as you near the end!

“It’s a kiss, Jessica. Not sex.”
“Whoa…. Clearly you don’t understand. A kiss is a save the date, an RSVP to my vagina that says: You. Will. Be. There.”

Wow, the ending! That really did leave us blown away! We aren’t going to spoil it but unusually, the ending of this read isn’t really the ending! Confused? You will be but let us explain. The author kindly gives you a little taster of the beginning of book two, Middle of Knight. You don’t have to read it but being gluttons for punishment, we did! Let’s just say we ‘one-clicked’ as soon as possible! Although we were left bereft from what we’d read, we have to know what happens next to this brother and sister. All we know is their lives are about to get a whole lot more complicated!

“So you want me for my body?”
“I think we both know it’s not for your stellar personality.”

If you are looking for a read full of intrigue, suspense, passion and without question, originality, this book delivers! It’s not your typical love story per se but it was an amazing insight into the minds of two extraordinary individuals. The book comes under the erotica genre and to a point, we have to agree as the book does contain some very steamy sex scenes; notwithstanding, it’s so much more than that. Our recommendation would be to go in blind and get ready for the ride of your life! Also, do not be tempted to skip a few pages to find out what happens next (tempting we know!) as the chances are you would miss a vital piece of information which could be key to the story. Bravo Ms Jewel E. Ann!
