Katiebird reviews Nocte and Verum by Courtney Cole

Nocte by courtney coleVerum by courtney cole

The Nocte Trilogy by Courtney Cole

My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole. My other half– my twin brother, my Finn– is crazy. I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me. I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. Dare DuBray. He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. He has the power to destroy me. Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. Why? Because of a secret. A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. You won’t either.

Courtney Cole has been a favorite author at BT for awhile, because of the versatility of her stories and writing style. She can do paranormal romance, adult humor, and even Young Adult. But I have to say this is my favorite series she has written so far.

Katiebird’s Shout Out to Two Erotic Books

Katiebird’s Shout out to The Silver Chain and Confessions of an Alli Cat 

It’s me again, stepping outside my comfort zone here. I don’t read a ton of erotica, mainly because graphic sex scenes aren’t my thing. I love LOVE and a majority of erotic books don’t focus on that aspect of the relationship. It’s all about physical gratification and sex. There are definitely exceptions, like Fifty Shades of Gray and Captive in the Dark. Just to name a few of my favorites.

Tamie Reviews: Before We Fall by Courtney Cole

The synopsis:

Sometimes before we fall . . . we fly.

One dark moment was all it took to turn twenty-four-year-old Dominic Kinkaide’s world black. On the night of his high school graduation, a single incident changed him forever, and he became a hardened man-famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured inside. Now all he cares about is losing himself in the roles that he plays.

At twenty-three years old, Jacey Vincent doesn’t realize how much her father’s indifference has affected her. She is proof that sometimes it isn’t one specific moment that wrecks a person, but an absence of moments. She tries to find acceptance in the arms of men to fill the void-a plan that has worked just fine for her, until she meets Dominic.

When jaded Dominic and strong-willed Jacey are thrown together, the combination of his secrets and her issues turns their attraction into the perfect storm. It could change their lives for good-if it doesn’t tear them both apart . . .

Tamie Reviews: If You Leave by Courtney Cole (Beautifully Broken series #2)

The synopsis: 

26-year old Gabriel Vincent is a badass hero. Or he used to be, anyway. As an ex-Army Ranger, Gabe never thought he needed anyone. But after one horrible night in Afghanistan scars him in a way that he can’t get past, he needs someone who can help him heal…even if he doesn’t realize it.

25-year old Madison Hill doesn’t need anybody…or so she thinks. She grew up watching her parents’ messed-up abusive relationship and she knows there’s no way in hell that she’s ever letting that happen to her.

They don’t know it in the beginning, but Gabriel and Madison will soon develop a weakness: Each other.

But Gabriel’s got a secret, a hidden monster that he’s afraid Maddy could never overcome… And Maddy’s got issues that she’s afraid Gabe will never understand. They quickly realize that they need each other to be whole, but at the same time they know that they’ve got demons to fight.

And the problem with demons is that they never die quietly.
