Published December 8, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog

We’re celebrating the release of WHEN WE FALL by Marquita Valentine! Join in the fun!

 

Title:When We Fall (Take the Fall #2)
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: Decemeber 8, 2015
Book Description:
The last time Piper Ross saw her best friend’s sexy older brother, Jase Simmons, he was being taken away in handcuffs. Seven years later, two things haven’t changed: Piper is still head-over-heels in love with him . . . and Forrestville’s chief of police—Piper’s dad—still hates his guts. So when Piper sees a chance to get close to Jase, she makes her move—literally. As his new roommate, and as the office manager of his tattoo shop, Piper won’t be satisfied until Jase knows that she wants to be his.
The quintessential good girl, Piper is pure temptation for Jase. The only reason he’s always kept his distance is because she’s the last person he’d ever want to hurt. But once he realizes that Piper is ready to take the leap, everything just makes sense. Suddenly Jase feels like a new man—until nasty rumors start swirling and Piper’s heartless father stirs up even more trouble. Now Jase must convince Piper that she wasn’t wrong about him . . . because falling in love never felt so right.
Book Review:

I have loved all the books I have read from Ms. Valentine. I sadly never read Take the Fall, but that did stop me from enjoying When We Fall.

 

This was a story of the “good girl” falling for the “bad boy”, a lot of times that situation is over done and a boring read, but this one was the opposite. Not sure what it was all this one, but it wasn’t boring and I just couldn’t put it down!

 

I really liked Rowan; she was stronger than she wanted to believe she was. Standing up and fighting for what she loved was strong. I was not a fan of her parents at all! Her mother was a piece of work and always put her down. I also think her father was doing some things that would hurt Jase. Then there was Jase, at first he pissed me off on how he treated Rowan and how he felt in order to push her away, he needed to flirt with other girls. Over time though, Jase won me over.

 

I can’t wait to read Hunter’s story next. I think I know who it will be with!!

Narrated by Arielle DeLisle
Music by Troy
Release date: November 2015
A
storm is coming, and with storms come restless waters.
Pulled from the depths of catastrophe and
depression, Blythe McGuire has learned to escape from her past while embracing
the future. A future now entwined with the Shepherd siblings.

With Chris, she shares a staggering romance
that kicks heartbreak’s ass.

With Sabin, she shares an intense friendship,
one that’s becoming more complicated than either had expected. A friendship now
being put to the test because Sabin’s brutal past still haunts him. Because
trauma is the gift that keeps on giving without mercy.

Now Sabin is the one left drowning and
struggling to breathe, and his turmoil threatens to send all three into dark
currents they cannot escape. Even after going through her own hell, saving
Sabin will take much more than Blythe had anticipated. Their connection and
their love could help, but getting him to reach for her hand could be Blythe’s
biggest challenge ever.

 

 

From Author Jessica Park
Gah! I am so excited for the release of the Restless Waters audiobook! It’s always
exciting when a book I’ve written comes to life in a new form, but this project
snowballed into something more beautiful than I could have imagined. I wasn’t
sure I was even going to do an audiobook, but then I reconnected with my
fabulous Left Drowning narrator,
Arielle DeLisle. Once she was on board, my enthusiasm for creating this version
of my book soared. She understands my characters as well as I do, and she’s the
only person in the world I would entrust to deliver their voices.
So, as thrilled as I was to have her attached
to this project, there was one idea I had to present, and I wasn’t sure how it
would go over with her…
Restless
Waters
includes lyrics from my friend and
phenomenally talented musician, Troy. Beyond that, he actually wrote a song for me! Er, well, for the
book.
“Coward”
is the powerful single he created, and everything about it reaches into my
heart. More music from the book is available on his recently released EP,
When
The Lights Came
, and he’ll also be releasing more music
from the book soon!
So, I couldn’t imagine having these lyrics
narrated… I mean, it’s one thing to read the lyrics in the context of the
book, because it’s sort of the equivalent of poetry, but I felt sure something would
really be lost if they were read aloud. More than that, we had an opportunity
to do something incredibly unique and dynamic.
Because Arielle is a sassy rule breaker and a
rebel, like I am, she agreed: We would ask Troy to record acoustic versions of
his music to incorporate into the audiobook.
And then Troy agreed.
And then suddenly the three of us were
working together seamlessly on this production! An indie trifecta, each of us
bringing something different to this work, and all of us supporting and
cheering on the other. It was an extraordinary experience.
Troy and I have been trying to work together
for years (his former band, In Like Lions, is mentioned in Flat-Out Love!), and we finally got our chance. Troy is, without a
doubt, the voice of Sabin. Nobody sings with Troy’s level of passion, emotion,
depth, soul, and beauty. It was an honor to use his lyrics in the text of the
book, but hearing his voice as Sabin’s in the audiobook is phenomenally moving,
and I am so grateful for all the work he put in. Troy also narrates the chapter
titles and opening lyrics, and I think it’s just perfect having him as Sabin
doing those introductory pieces.
As far as the three of us know, an audiobook
that incorporates music as the Restless
Waters
one does hasn’t been done before, so that’s another thrill for us!
Listeners not only get to savor Arielle’s perfect narration (Man, does she
capture these characters and all the ups and downs of the story!), but they get
to hear what it would be like to be right there with Sabin as he sings and
plays guitar.
We are so proud of this audiobook and
terribly excited for fans of the Left
Drowning
series to take a listen!

From narrator Arielle DeLisle
Restless Waters was a project I held very
close to my heart. The timing of how it came together for me — as a narrator
and collaborator and fan of the prequel I’d recorded 2 years ago — was truly a
beautiful experience for me. It’s one of my favorite projects I’ve worked on,
ever. To say this was an intense recording experience would be an
understatement! Not only was this thick with emotion and depth, which required
a lot from me as a narrator, a challenge I absolutely loved, but it also is an
exceptionally unique multimedia audiobook. I could not imagine a better suited
team, all of us with our own personal connections to the work, and all driven
toward the end-product being as great as we could make it. 
Working with Troy and his producer, Dante, to
get just the right feel and timing to allow the story to unfold around and on
top of the music was a beautiful enhancement to this already moving story. I
have a background in commercial production and was able to facilitate this
collaboration, and Jessica and I were on the same page — if we break the rules
of how audiobooks are produced, it has to have meaning and it has to be
perfect. The script informs the narration, introducing the music adds dimension
to the tone, and the blend of narration and music work together to create an
atmosphere that you just don’t get when it’s only one piece or the other. I
love what we’ve done and couldn’t be happier with how it all came together.

Excerpt
Chapter
1
DRAW
ME IN, MY SWEET MEDUSA
ALEXANDER
October
            Revenge.
They say revenge is a dish best served
cold, but I think I’d like mine hot, hot and bothered for me.
My car was parked behind a stand of
cattails, just beyond the dilapidated-looking barn so I could admire the muscles
in her legs when she put her boot in the stirrup and boosted herself up and
into the saddle. Her breasts bounced when she landed, taunting me further. Her
hair was as flaxen blonde as her horse’s mane, it streamed through the breeze
behind her as she urged the animal into a gallop. She leaned over the horse’s
neck and whispered words in the animal’s ear. I imagined her lying over me, her
silky hair cascading over my bare shoulders as she used encouraging words to
urge me on.
In pursuit of my prey, I’d discovered
her. I had come here after Billy Buford, the man I was certain would lead me to
the whereabouts of my big brother. Whether Kon was dead or alive the trail went
cold in Crossroads.
          Day after day, I searched every backwoods shanty and
abandoned still in Marshall County, Alabama, but Billy Buford was nowhere to be
found. I should admit that I’d come up empty-handed and chalk it up to another
dead end. I convinced myself I’d trekked into the armpit of this county so I
could locate Billy, but I had been sticking around to keep an eye on her.
            I’d met
Billy once over a beer with my brother. He was thick through the neck and thick
in the head, he was a bruiser and bully. I thought of him as Billy goat gruff.
I couldn’t figure out what my brother Kon saw in the guy, before Billy had
finished his second beer he was chasing some skank. After he left with her Kon
told me Billy was engaged to a beautiful girl — belle of the south — Kon called
her. I gave my brother a double take — how could anything that shallow acquire
anything of worth?
            Dumb luck
was the only explanation I came up with because she was the most tantalizing thing I’d come across in Alabama. But
I’d never been desperate enough for female companionship that I’d stalked an
unsuspecting female. I expelled a heavy breath into the thick air and the
rearview mirror fogged up. I chuckled at the thought of her body hovering over
mine, telling me what to do. When had I ever needed directions? Especially from
a sweet little piece wearing frayed Daisy Dukes. 
            The
binoculars felt slippery in my hands as I pushed them over the leather on the
passenger’s seat. I had to stop this; I chastised myself as I rearranged myself
in my seat. I was obsessing over her as much as what I’d come to this backwoods
town for in the first place.
I
was here for revenge. Retribution. I’d take it hot or cold, maybe I’d have a
serving of each.

Release Day: My Soul to Keep by Kennedy Ryan

Published November 16, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog

release day banner copy

Synopsis

It seems the things worth keeping are often the hardest to hold…

KAI

I had two things in life that mattered. My mother and my music.
Mama was taken from me too soon, and now music is all I have left. It’s the thing that’s pushed me right out of backwoods Georgia into Los Angeles, where the line between fantasy and reality shimmers and blurs. I’m finally making my way, making my mark. I can’t afford to fall for one of music’s brightest stars. Not now. Music is all I have left, and I’m holding on tight with both hands. I won’t let go, not even for Rhyson Gray.

RHYSON

I had one thing in my life that mattered – music. The only constant, it’s taken me to heights most people only dream about; a gift dropped in my lap at birth. I thought it was enough. I thought it was everything until I met Kai. Now she’s all I think about, like a song I can’t get out of my head. If I have to chase her, if I have to give up everything – I will. And once she’s mine, I won’t let go.

Goodreads

Excerpt

I shouldn’t have come. All the things I felt and fought, the things I suspected he felt too, he just spewed all over me. And as much as I want to be, I’m not sure I’m ready. I’ll never forget seeing my Mama in bed for days after Daddy left. And even though she got up, I suspect a part of her never left that bed, but just stayed there, waiting. We had to leave the house where she grew up and where I spent my first years, because Daddy left us with nowhere to go. Mama learned to stand on her two feet, and I’ve done the same. I just didn’t count on Rhyson sweeping me off of them.

“We’re obviously on different pages about this.” I pull my hands free and turn to leave, but he steps in front of me, blocking my grand exit. “Let’s talk later.”

“Enough talking.”

The heat of his body grabs me before his hands do. He traps my chin between two fingers, taking my mouth in a paradox of rough and tender. I want to move. To slide away from his body pressing me into the pool table. But I can’t. Not with his hand caressing my back. Not with his tongue in my mouth. Not with his erection pressing into my stomach. I can’t. I won’t. I have been denying myself this, and I’m so damn hungry. My mouth opens under his, ravenous and wet and hot. His groan vibrates against my lips.

“Yes. Good God, yes, Pep.” His words slip down my throat.

I strain up on tiptoes, clawing my fingers into his dark hair, forcing him closer. He lifts me onto the pool table, planting himself between my knees. His fingers skim my bare thigh, working up my leg until he reaches a damp patch of silk. He pushes my panties aside, rubbing his hand into the wet flesh there before sliding one long finger and then another inside of me. I rock into these fingers which have awed millions with their skill. They own me. I’m the instrument in his hands. He’s playing me. Plucking at me. Strumming me.

He tugs at the wide neck of my sweater until it falls away from my shoulder, slipping his hand in and cupping my naked breast. He brushes his fingers over my nipple, and I lose my mind and every inhibition. My head flops back and I stretch my legs wider, offering him anything he wants.

“Are you kidding me?” His question burns the vulnerable curve of my neck as he drags his lips to my shoulder. “You come here wearing no bra and think I won’t…”

He abandons the words, his dark, untidy head disappearing under my sweater, and before I have time to regain even millimeters of sanity, my nipple is in his mouth and he’s suckling me. Not gentle. Not soft. My breasts are so small, he almost eats me whole. Every draw, every suck, every bite sends a power surge to my core until my knees hold his hips in a desperate grip, and my nails rake across the flat surface of the pool table behind me.

His mouth at my breast. His fingers inside me. His clean scent surrounding me. I have nowhere to hide anymore. I am exposed. I want to spread myself wide open for him. That voice that has been telling me I can’t rely on him. I can’t trust him. I can’t need him—that voice is stunned into silence by his thorough possession of my body, by the inferno between my legs, blazing a hole right through my soul and scorching my heart.

Amelia Bradbury is finally free from Queen Julia and Cresthaven, but she isn’t safe yet. The Keeper power runs rampant inside her and it will take an ultimate act of selflessness to contain the darkness that threatens Amelia’s sanity and the future of the Immortal race.

Aidan Montgomery refuses to give up on Amelia. Once she’s rescued from the Keeper’s hold, he intends to prove his love is more than a side effect of the prophecy, even if doing so leads him away from his pack and on a journey that will irrevocably change them both.

When the past and the present collide and the shocking origin of the Immortals is revealed, Amelia and Aidan are forced back to Cresthaven to end a war that never should have started.

Amelia grew up in a world of half-truths. She knows she’s an Elder, but has no idea what that means. Her father reminds her daily that she must maintain control, but he refuses to explain why. Even worse, she’s betrothed to the prince of the Immortals and doesn’t even know his name.

Finally breaking free to live a few normal years at a community college, the last thing Amelia expects is to find her best friend in a cheeky southern girl, or fall for a self-assured human who sees her for who she is, not what she will become.

As she learns more about herself, Amelia realizes the line between love and duty is a thin one. As her power continues to increase exponentially and her questions are slowly answered, Amelia must make the ultimate choice. The question is, will her head win the battle, or her heart?

Peter: I’ve always felt
like I was saving myself for her.
Not that way. Not sexually. Saving my life. Trying to be smart about what I do.
Actually giving a damn. Because I matter to her. It’s something I’ve never had
— anyone who cares like she does — and it’s absolutely amazing.

She’s amazing, this very good girl I can not have. Her dad made that clear the
night he caught us together, but that’s not enough to stop me from me from wanting
her.

Still, it would be a completely selfish move on my part to draw her any deeper
into my life. I just heard my mom’s getting out of prison early. Not for good
behavior. Because of overcrowding. Life was always crazy with mom. If she comes
back, if she wants me back, my life turns to crap. I know that, and at sixteen,
I don’t think I can do anything about it, except maybe run as far and fast as I
can. Even Dana, my very good girl, won’t be able to save me.

Release Blitz: With Visions of Red Box Set by Trisha Wolfe

Published November 4, 2015 by adventuresinbooklandblog
Title: With Visions of Red Boxed Set
Series: Broken Bonds #1-3
Author: Trisha Wolfe
Genre: Dark Romantic Thriller
 Release Date: November 4, 2015
Blurb
Book One

Passion and lust ignite. Dark and light battle. This explosive first installment of the Broken Bonds series sets the exhilarating pace for a cat and mouse game where no one knows who’s really pulling the strings.
Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers’ heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way—because it’s safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that’s how she’s coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen.

She will never be a victim again.

Now, she’s honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie’s head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul.

When she meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive BDSM club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.

Book Two The UNSUB has made contact.

After a rapid string of grisly murders shakes the usually peaceful city of Arlington, Virginia, the sadistic killings of young women lull into a deceptive calm. Agent Sadie Bonds knows the terror isn’t over; serial killers don’t stop until caught.

And this sadist has targeted the profiler, revealing pieces of her dark past and weaving her secrets into each gruesome crime scene. Is the killer someone from Sadie’s past, her present? Or is he part of a fated future she brought on herself? The answer lies within the riddle of the copycat killings, ones mimicked after the infamous Blood Countess.

As tension brews in the department awaiting the UNSUB’s next move, Sadie’s more than on edge—her deviant cravings for the possible perpetrator have ratcheted out of control. She needs the feel of Colton’s ropes binding her, sheltering her from stark reality.

Only Colton Reed has his own twisted secrets that threaten to unravel not only Sadie as they come to light, but the UNSUB’s carefully constructed web now entangling both the profiler and her sexy bondage rigger.

Book Three Who is the UNSUB?

For Agent Sadie Bonds, finding the answer to that question means the difference between life and death for someone close to her. The UNSUB’s latest abduction reaches right into the heart of the ACPD, forcing every member of the department to search within their ranks for the sadistic perpetrator.

Suspicion not only clouds the task force; it slithers into Sadie and Colton’s bond, challenging their love. Discovering the truth means facing their past together. Sadie’s connection to Colton has quieted her inner demons—but is she strong enough to confront the real monster?

All players take their places as the stage is set for the final scene. With the UNSUB manipulating the game, even Sadie and Colton fall victim, spiraling deep into the darkness that threatens not only their lives, but their trust. As Sadie navigates a tortuous maze, Colton will do whatever is takes to protect her.

 The truth will set you free. Only for Sadie, her truth will test the very fabric of her reality. She must silence the threat, or risk losing everything and everyone she loves.

ONE LIFE (Only You #2) by A.J. Pine
NA Contemporary Romance
Berkley/Intermix
BLURB:

In the latest from the author of One Night, tragedy causes a young woman to struggle to keep her head above water, and the only one who can help her is the guy who’s been in the friend zone for the past year . . .
Every time life throws Zoe Adler a curve ball, she changes her appearance. Freshmen year—after almost following in her mother’s alcoholic footsteps—she said good-bye to her blonde, girl-next-door image and opted for jet black hair and piercings galore. After her brother Wyatt’s death, she escapes to the city to teach a summer art program for kids. Her black hair goes blue, and she finds solace in the arms of a longtime friend, in his heart, and in his bed—but her guilt makes her unable to accept the love he wants to give.

Spock might be the guy to save Zoe. But when she learns the truth about his past, the edge she’s teetered on since losing Wyatt drops out from under her. The girl who kept it together for everyone finally falls apart. Now Zoe must choose between drowning in guilt about Wyatt or asking for help. But even if she gets the help she needs, Spock may not be waiting for her when she’s ready to let love in.
