Life coach and best-selling author Victoria Price has it all: a successful career, fabulous friends, a fantastic penthouse in Manhattan. What she doesn’t have—and doesn’t want—is a husband. Fifteen years ago her high school flame broke her heart so badly she swore she’d never love again. Now she makes millions teaching other women how to be just like her: a ruthless bitch.
Drop-dead sexy restaurateur and infamous playboy Parker Maxwell has only three rules for the women he dates: no questions about his past, no expectations for the future, and no spending the night. When he meets Victoria, however, he’s willing to break his own rules if it means sating the explosive desire she arouses in him. What he doesn’t know is that the alluring Victoria Price used to be the mousy Isabel Diaz, the girl he deflowered and dumped long ago.
Presented with a perfect opportunity for revenge, Victoria decides the game is on. But when her connection with Parker proves more than just skin deep, she has to make a choice: continue with her plan for payback, or risk her career, her reputation, and her heart by taking a second chance on love?
Book Beginnings on Fridays is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader. A couple of Fridays a month, I will share the first sentence (or so) of the book I am currently reading, along with my initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
It’s me again, talking about the amazingness that is Jennifer L. Armentrout. She completely owns me this month, because the second book in the Titan series came out this week, The Power! Seth was so inspiring and such a badass, that he got his own series after the completion of the Covenantseries.
WOW. And yet again, Debra Anastasia WOWed me. First of all, happy release week to this wickedly wonderful lady! The Revenger is live and up for grabs! I just gotta warn you tho… this book is no dark romance! It’s a trap! Not sure what genre it should fall into, but it’s kind of a mind-fucking twisting-beautifully-sick-badass-fantasy-unsettling in a good way-kind of read! I really don’t know what I’m talking about. Like, I have no words or correct phrase to describe it. Whew! I devoured it in a day. I couldn’t wait until I got to know all the details, and so I had a one night stand with this book! I FLOVEd it!!! And the ending is awesome for me, others might wish for a different one but they are no Debra Anastasia. So yeah! Amazing job Deb! 😉
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Today is the release day for The Revenger by Debra Anastasia, and I have an excerpt and teaser to share with you!
The real hero of this story is dead. You should have met him. He was a beautiful man. The love of my life. I didn’t deserve him.
Now what’s left are the jagged edges of the person I am without him, and what I have to do to get by. This isn’t even a story about love. Not really. It’s a twisted tale of revenge and hate—a happily never after.
The only man in my life now is the one I have to kill.
Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now.
Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge, and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.
Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself.
Sometimes life makes you work for that happily ever after…
Being a huge fan of JLA, I am always sure that I will love whatever she writes. This book in particular though, hit me a little differently.
I admit, I’m not a huge fan of the paranormal genre…but I do have a few of my faves on the list. I’m so glad to be able to add one more author for keeps. I recently had the opportunity to read Saving Evangeline by Nancee Cain. It was her debut novel and I must say, AWESOME JOB! She’s now on my radar for a must watch author.
So as I was saying…the author slayed it with a beautiful writing flow, an amazing story line, and characters to fall in love with. I loved the journey of these two souls who are both lost and trying to find themselves. They learn the meaning of life together; they learn how to live it; and they both learn how to love. Remiel and Evangeline are two special characters that will make you cry, smile, laugh and hope.
