Illustrated Temptations: Appealed by Emma Chase

img_0006-0

Happy Book Birthday to Emma Chase!!! Appealed just went live the other day and I am so excited for you guys to meet Brent and Kennedy. This 3rd book from The Legal Briefs Series is such a sweet addition to the gang! I thoroughly enjoy reading Emma’s work (as if I haven’t mentioned that over and over and over again).

This story is all about second chances. B and K were oozing hot and sexy as hell together but it was the witty banter they shared that had me constantly laughing out loud. I loved Kennedy’s feisty  attitude plus Brent’s sexy humor. It’s amazing how Emma Chase brilliantly writes romances involving fierce, independent, sexy heroines with rich-playboy-with-cocky-attitude-heroes who always end up madly in love with each other. Also I have to point out that Emma deserves to get an award–“The BEST” in writing in male’s POV. I really think she was a guy in her former life. lol
All I can say is, one-click all of her books. Now.

Check out some of my teasers below… Continue reading

Life and Death Twilight Reimagined by Stephenie Meyer

When Beaufort Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edythe Cullen, his life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With her porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edythe is both irresistible and enigmatic.

What Beau doesn’t realize is the closer he gets to her, the more he is putting himself and those around him at risk. And, it might be too late to turn back…

If you thought that this book was just “switching gender roles and name changes” on the classic storyline, you would be mistaken. Not that the story doesn’t start out that way.

THE IMPACT

Tristan hit rock bottom, and no one felt the impact harder than Danika. She was forced to see, in the most brutal of ways, that love does not conquer all. Bruised, bloody, and broken she had to walk away.
THE AFTERMATH

Picking up the pieces of your life after a tragedy is a daunting prospect, and that’s considering you still own all of the pieces. But what if you don’t? What if someone else owns those pieces, and those pieces are a part of your soul?

You dig deep and work with what you’ve got.

That’s what Danika told herself and believed, every single day, for years.
Tristan and Danika’s love had failed every test that life had thrown at them. She couldn’t forget that, not for one second. And if those tests had been overly harsh, well, she wasn’t one to wallow in self-pity. The failure was the thing she had to focus on. The failure was the lesson. She had no intention of working so hard to make it out of hell without learning that lesson well.

THE REUNION

Over six years after the night that changed everything, Danika finds herself forced to spend the weekend constantly in Tristan’s company, as they attend the wedding of two of their dearest friends. It’s been long enough that she feels they can be friendly again without it destroying her peace of mind, but just a small amount of time in his presence has her remembering something she had forced herself to forget: There’d been a reason she’d gone through hell with this man, for this man, some true good to precede the bad.

She shocks herself by quickly giving in to a hunger that she never imagined could still consume her.
Even the best intentioned denial has a breaking point.

THE HARSH REALITY

After everything that’s happened, the rise and the fall, the pain and the aftermath, can these two navigate the waters of acute regret, survive the trials of coming face to face with all that they have lost, and find the strength to try again?

Elena Reviews: Thoughtful by S.C. Stephens

thoughtful

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

In Thoughtless, Kiera told her story. Now it’s time to hear from the sexy rock star who captivated us all . . .

THOUGHTFUL

The only place Kellan Kyle has ever felt at home is onstage. Gripping his guitar in a darkened bar, he can forget his painful past. These days his life revolves around three things: music, his bandmates, and hot hookups. Until one woman changes everything . . .

Kiera is the kind of girl Kellan has no business wanting-smart, sweet, and dating his best friend. Certain he could never be worthy of her love, he hides his growing attraction . . . until Kiera’s own tormented heart hints that his feelings might not be one-sided. Now, no matter the consequences, Kellan is sure of one thing-he won’t let Kiera go without a fight.
