Blurb

Claire Fortune arrives in Boston with an old notebook and her best friend’s dying wish – to finish the scribbled bucket list that Hope didn’t have time to complete. Moment by moment, Claire builds a life she never dreamed of – until Theo walks into the coffee-shop one crisp September afternoon, and her careful plans scatter on the winds.

Sometimes a chance meeting can change a life forever.

Sometimes fate knows exactly what we need.

Perfect for fans of ‘Me Before You’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, ‘The Promise’ brings together two people searching for a love that can overcome tragedy. A heartbreakingly romantic novel that challenges us to live – and love – every day as if it were our last.

Review


The PromiseThe Promise by Melody Grace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh. My. Gawd. This book…this is going to be a short review. so that I don’t give anything away, otherwise I’ll go on and on.

I can’t even begin to describe the feels and emotional rollercoaster I went through. Even though my circumstances haven’t been exactly the same as the characters in here the effect on my life and my family has been the same.

Claire and Theo were just so addictive and lovable! Honestly I don’t have a bad word to say against this book…not even about making me cry.

please read this! Promise?

Hi! I’m Melody Grace, author of the bestselling Beachwood Bay series. Some things about me:

1 I’m a small-town girl turned California beach lover.

2 I spent my childhood with my nose in a book before deciding to try and write one myself. I love all kinds of genres – from thrillers to YA and mystery – but romance has always been a passion of mine.

3 I love pistachio ice-cream, vanilla lattes, bad action movies, and Grey’s Anatomy (yes, I’m still watching… I can’t quit!).

4 I have an uncanny sense of direction. I once drove halfway across Canada without GPS or a map!

5 I have two adorable rascal cats named Bucky and Steve, I rescued them as kittens, and yes, I spoil them rotten.

6 I’m allergic to chocolate 🙁

7 I love sexy, heart-felt reads with strong heroines and swoon-worthy men. Why don’t you check out a couple of my books and meet your new book boyfriends?

Review: House of Ravens (House of Royals #5) by Keary Taylor

House of Ravens (House of Royals, #5)House of Ravens by Keary Taylor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

***4 1/2stars!***

I love Keary Taylor, that is no secret, and this series has been a favorite of mine. Seriously.

Keary kicks off the finale to her House of Royals Saga with flair if you’ve read the rest of the series…and I do mean ALL the books…then you’ll remember that we left off on a major cliffhanger (one i just want to jump around and point a finger saying I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!) and we pick up exactly where we left off at.

**Henry may be alive!**

This book was just a major unveiling and revelations all around. Henry, Rath (we find out his origins!), the army and it’s creator/leader, Ian, and Ian’s relationship with Alivia. I was caught up in the drama and loved watching it unfold, but I felt as if the ending was rushed, we had 5 books of buildup–for Alivia and Ian’s relationship, for this army and “war” that was coming, and setting up Henry’s return. Then all of a sudden it’s over and the battle was more like a confrontation. Henry is a dichotomy–he’s the one who was so brutal and left the blood smears at Alivia’s old apartment. Then there’s how Alivia knows her daughter is a royal Born and the father, but it’s kind of swept under the rug till the very end where it’s left open.

Alivia’s growth was once again one of my favorite things, she was never stagnant in this series. There was always a new direction to go for her.

I can’t help but to tell you to read this finale, and if you haven’t yet pick. up. this. series!

Viewing Room (Society X, #2)Viewing Room by L.P. Dover

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Viewing Room…What can I say about this book?

I only finished it last night, and it managed to be one of the first books I was able to finish after being in such a book funk the last couple weeks. Point to Gryffindor right there. I loved it. It was romantic, sexy, and angsty, but not in the way you would imagine. Another point to Gryffindor (aka the authors) But while I loved it, I was also a bit confused. So, I’m going to break convention and start with what put me off to get it out in the open before moving into the good, the great and the amazing!

We’ve all seen it: the rules of Society X.

viewing-room-teaser-3

Well for something that seemed so prominent in all the teasers and on the cover, in the blurb, this book completely disregarded them–and I mean completely. No one was anonymous in Society X. They all used names–not even fake names but their own–and on top of that they discussed themselves as well, the main characters, the employees of the club, the patrons, it seemed the whole thing was about breaking the rules rather than following them. But like I said before I was more confused about that fact than anything. After all…Rules are meant to be broken, are they not?

As for the rest of the story…*dreamy sigh.* Are there any more Hunter’s in the world? The story really does focus more on the 2 main characters, Hunter and Kennedy. Hunter is a law student paying his way through school by working at Society X and Kennedy is recently divorced lawyer, they meet at the club. Hunter I truly loved. He was a well-fleshed out character, and for the most part so was Kennedy. But there was one incongruity about Kennedy that didn’t add up: her family. Other than that though I loved her as well, they were both strong characters, and while they made mistakes they were so flippant about making promises like “I’ll love you forever” or “I’ll never leave” or to hightail it when the going gets rough. Both were mature and talked things through before any action was taken. and for that I give beaucoup points to Gryffindor! *mini-rant* I mean how hard is it to talk to the other person when you hear or see something that may not be right, when it breaks your heart? There are always more than one side to things. *end mini-rant*

Sorry folks, got carried away. To be honest this book had very thriller-type qualities that I loved. It was still a romance, and an erotic one at that, but definitely thriller. The romance and sexy got me into the book but the climatic Conan-Doyle-esque what will happen next kept me glued to the pages until the end.

Of course we also know I love my characters and there were so many extras who seemed like great character but unfortunately we didn’t get to see much of or get to know, its like they were magic popping in out of nowhere to do what was needed before they disappeared from sight and mind once more.

On one last note: the Viewing Room. It is the title of the book and in a way the focus, yet I feel I don’t understand it completely. I don’t want to give any spoilers away, but why is it a “viewing room” if sometimes no one is viewing the activities? It’s public or private depending on it’s user. Exactly what type(s) of activities happen in there? All mentions of it were quick and somewhat ambiguous, seeming to want to move on from that vein of thought.

The Viewing Room…for your pleasure, And yet it is outside of the room that the best fun occurred. 🙂

Excerpt

Tomorrow comes awfully fast and the day flies by. Maybe it’s because I’m not exactly thrilled about watching people have sex all by myself. It makes me wonder what kind of things people ask to see when they have requests. All I can say is that I feel like a creeper.

Chris walks into my office and stops when he gets a good look at my face. “Whoa, why are you so red?”

Glancing at the clock, I sigh. “Because in a couple of hours, I have to watch three people have sex in the viewing room.” He knows that I’m doing my own investigative work, but I never told him exactly what I’m doing until now.

He bursts out laughing. “Are you serious? What if it’s not the guy you’re looking for?”

I shrug. “Then I guess I’ll be watching these people have sex.”

“This is classic. I was going to ask you to go to dinner with me, but you’ll be too busy.”

I roll my eyes. “Ha-ha. I’d much rather be getting some dinner. I think I’m just going to stay here until it’s time to go.”

He tries to hide his smile and fails. “Have fun with that. You’ll have to let me know how it went in the morning.” He chuckles the entire time he walks to his office and then out the front door. I’ll never be able to escape him now; he’ll make fun of me for the rest of our lives.

Once everyone leaves, I eat the rest of my turkey sandwich I had left over from lunch while I look over my notes on Chad Bates. Jennifer never texted to tell me if he was going to be at the club or not, so I guess I’ll just have to find out when I get there. I wonder if Hunter’s ever done something like that … had sex with two girls on stage in front of an audience. That’s one of the reasons why I can never get serious about him. How can I when he does that for a living?

My time is running out so I close up the office and head to the club. The parking lot is packed, but I slip on my necklace and get out of the car. I try to ignore the evil looks from everyone standing in line as I walk up to the door. Luckily, Jared is right inside, dressed in his tux and his dark hair perfectly coifed.

“Good evening,” he says, taking my purse. It’s going to be hard to pin anything on Chad without physical proof. Maybe I can try to sneak in a hidden camera next time. Jared nods for me to follow him and we go through the door that leads to the sex rooms. Placing his hand on the doorknob, he smiles at me. “You ready?”

I laugh. “I hope so.”

We walk inside and he points to the purple, velvet couch. It’s the same place my co-workers sat when Hunter and I were on stage. “All you have to do is sit here and watch the show. If for some reason you have to leave, just press that blue button,” he says, pointing to it on the wall. “That way, I’ll know to come in and get you.”

I nod. “Thanks. I think I got it.”

He starts toward the door. “Enjoy the show.”

Excerpt: Wait by AL Jackson

 

Wait Release Banner

 Okay so I’m supposed to have a review (oopsie) but a little thing called Life got in the way, so I’m still reading this amazing f-ing book. I mean how do you not love Austin? I fell in love with him during A stone in the sea and Drowning to Breathe. But anyways, off point, what I’m trying to say is that I will get back to you with the review either added into this post or a brand new post all to itself! Check back in a week or less 😉
In the meantime, enjoy this completely loveable (and hot) excerpt from the book!

 

ALJackson-WaitBookCover5x8_BW_HIGH

From NYT & USA Today bestselling author comes a new Bleeding Stars stand-alone novel…

She is his strength and he is her weakness. And this time he won’t let her go.

 

Edie Evans is gorgeous.

Sexy.

Kind.

She’s also the definition of off-limits.

But that didn’t stop me from sneaking into her room to comfort her at night.

But guys like me? We destroy everything, so it should have been no surprise when I destroyed us, too.

The night I sent her running, I thought I’d never see her again.

Until I saw her standing like a vision in the crowd.

 

Austin Stone is dangerous.

Alluring.

Tempting.

He broke my heart and I refused to give him the chance to do it again.

It’s been years since I’ve seen him, and now I can’t do anything but stare at the gorgeous, tattooed man playing onstage. I should run. I know I should. But like a fool, I run straight back to him.

Our desire is overpowering.
Our need unrelenting.

She is my hope.
He is my weakness.

We should have known a passion this intense would burn us right into the ground.

“Shit,” I hissed, bracing myself against the spray of the icy shards pelting from the shower head.

I sucked in a breath, released it between clenched teeth, and forced myself fully under it.

Head dropped and chest heaving as rivers of ice-cold water slicked down my shoulders and back.

But it did nothing to lessen the need. Gave me no sanity or pacification.

Because all I could think about was the girl on the other side of the door.

My girl.

In my bed.

Wearing just her panties and my shirt.

An angel I wanted to dirty.

I always had.

Love was messy like that.

All of my restraint scattered. I gripped my cock. Squeezed the base. My mouth dropped open at the pressure of my hand against my rigid length.

A fool thinking it might be enough.

Shit.

God, I was a bastard, but there was nothing I could do before I was giving in, leaning forward and bracketing my forearm above my head to hold my weight.

Water pounded down on my head and back while I pounded my fist against my dick.

Trying to keep silent when all I wanted was to moan, teeth digging into my bottom lip as I pictured the girl spread out for me.

My breaths were coming short.

Panted and hard.

I gave into imagining the sounds she would make when I finally got to bury myself in her body.

A soft, soft gasp.

I slowed, trying to convince myself that throaty sound was all in my mind.

Just another part of this fantasy.

Until I heard the small thump against the wall.

Shit.

I mashed my eyes closed, like it might hide me.

Conceal the depravity of my actions after I’d just been comforting her hours before.

Heart thrashing, I turned and moved far enough to peek out the small section where the fabric shower curtain hadn’t been drawn fully closed.

It was just a little sliver that left me exposed.

But it was enough. When I peered out, I was looking right at my girl pressed up against the wall.

She stared right back at me.

And I wanted to be horrified, my mind scrambling to conjure every weak apology I could summon. Ready to fucking grovel to keep her from turning and running once again.

Because that’s exactly what I expected her to do.

But her expression…her expression clutched me in the center of the chest and sent what little brain function I had left stampeding south.

Red, lush lips were parted, her hand pressed to her hollow of her throat, pupils dilated so big that her hooded, cerulean eyes appeared black. Needy breaths were coming at me from that sweet mouth like a goddamned freight train.

Desire swelled in the confines of the too-tight room.

Alive.

She pressed deeper into the wall as if it might support her weakened knees. Head rocked back. Thighs squeezing together.

Motherfuck.

My hand shot to the shower wall to steady myself. “Warning you, Edie, you need to get out of here. Right now.”

Review: All the Rage by TM Frazier

All the RageAll the Rage by T.M. Frazier

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OH HOLY RAGE BATMAN!!

If you’ve read the King series you’re definitely going to want a piece of this book with Rage’s story and special appearances by Bear, King and Thia.

I’ll admit that the very beginning of this book was hard for me to get into. But on the other, I was trying to read it while on vacation in Hawaii with my family and 10 month old nephew, so I’m calling it a moot point.

This book is all about the Rage, about having such foreign emotions and feeling so alienated from life. I spent the entire book wondering what it is to be Rage, to be unable to help yourself to the heat and passion of anger, violence and the thrill of the kill…and then she met Nolan.

I loved the dichotomy that is Rage. How she feels so much! And at the same time people say she is unfeeling. I mean seriously she reacts voraciously to a speck of dust, she knows she has issues with being hypochondriac and other things, but wile she fears germs, anger takes the forefront in almost all of her actions. Only Nolan seemed to be able to tame that spark in her.

Nolan. Nolan. Nolan. I mean seriously can I just once not read a Frazier book and fall in love with the guy then feel like I’m cheating on the other men she has created. Poor Bear and King…totally cheating on them with Nolan now. He is just mmm.. Okay I’m getting so close to spoiler territory that I’m hating myself a little, on top of being very rant-y. So I’m cutting myself off!

All I have left to say is this:
If you’re a fan of TM Frazier, or even if you’ve never heard of her before I so recommend her work. This book could be read as a stand alone or as part of the King books as it spins off of those characters and world.

Review: House of Judges (House of Royals #4) by Keary Taylor

House of Judges (House of Royals, #4)House of Judges by Keary Taylor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am beyond a day late and a dollar short on this review, I know.
I fail at life…Cast your stones.

Okay, the review. Keary Taylor has done it again. I keep wondering how it’s all going to work out, but then as the plot unfolds it’s like

Of course how else is this supposed to go down?? But I digress.

House of Judges if a whirlwind of information, suspense, longing, and giddy anticipation.
No spoilers but just to tease….

The Information: We learn so much more about the vampire world, court life and even Alivia’s family. Being as she is a descendent of the third son, we finally get to meet the old codger, Dorian! Okay so technically he’s forever frozen at a young age, but technicalities….eh.

Suspense: What is going to happen to Alivia, to her house? What about the attacks that have been happening and why would they want to frame her???

Longing: Alivia and Ian are reunited…in prison, but they’re also separated by their cells and their actions. They sooo want each other

but then there’s King Cyrus and his twisted self, and Raheem with his affections and pet name ‘my nofret’. What’s a girl to do?

As for giddy anticipation….well I guess you’ll just have to read the book and suffer the same feelings I went through. 😉

I was transfixed from the very first book not only by her characters, but their development and the plot. *squees and shudders*
Yeah, I know. I get too excited about character development. And this book was a doozy of character and plot development its like how many epiphanies can occur in one novel? And well the little nugget that was unearthed at the end of the book.

Totally saw that coming from the very first, but well yeah there is something BIGGER happening here. And you need to read this book so then we can talk about what-the-ever-loving-frick is going on!!! So go forth my House and devour House of Judges then return to me so we can talk about what is going on here. PLEASE???

They call me Rage.

My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.

I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.

You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.

And I’m a killer.

This life is all I know. It s all I want to know. It keeps the s**t buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.

Without dwelling on the past.

Until him.

It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.

And my first love.

I have to choose.

The only life I ve ever known has to die, or he does.

Either way, I ll be the one pulling the trigger…

All the Rage is a STANDALONE

Prologue

It was once said that if you love someone enough you should let them go.  If they come back to you, they were always meant to be yours.  

It’s kind of bullshit.

My story was a little different than most.  I was a little different than most.  

Because in my story, if you love someone enough, you should first drop the gun.
