Review – NINE MINUTES by Beth Flynn

I am KICKING myself!! Read my review of Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn to find out why!

nine minutes

image

On May 15, 1975, fifteen-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida.

From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity and a new life in the midst of the gang’s base on the edge of the Florida Everglades—a frightening, rough and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival.

And at the center of it all is the gang’s leader, Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life.

So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows and forced to lean on the one person who provides attention, affection and care: her captor. Precocious and intelligent, but still very much a teenager, Ginny struggles to adapt to her existence, initially fighting and then coming to terms with her captivity.

Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive—or get out at all? Part psychological thriller, part coming-of-age novel, filled with mystery, romance and unexpected turns, Nine Minutes takes readers into the world of one motorcycle gang and inside the heart of a young girl, whose abduction brought about its fall.

My heart hurts. I’ve been asked if I have a pulse, never mind if I heart, because I hardly ever cry at books. And I mean hardly ever! But this book… It hurt. It still does. I just couldn’t stop the tears. That last paragraph…that last line… Ugh, my heart. This is without a doubt a book which will stay with me for years to come, and is easily a favourite book of 2016.

I think it was the fact that the book is set in the 70’s that put me off reading it for so long, even though I have a huge love of biker books. I finally loaded it up on my Kindle and decided to give it a shot before the author attends Four Brits Book Fest in June, and oh my word… To say I devoured this book (and it’s sequel) was an understatement.

I became so obsessed with this story t hat I just couldn’t stop reading. I read and cried my way through this book in just one day, and then started on the sequel. within two days, I ‘d read both books, and by the following day, I started on an instant re-read. They were just that incredible. I loved this heart wrenching story so much, and even now, it’s been weeks and weeks since I first read them and I just can’t over Grizz and Ginny’s story.

The first two books in this series completely took me over, and I can’t wait for the third and final book, releasing this summer, to do the same. Absolute must reads!

Cover Reveal and Excerpt – DIRTY SEXY SECRET by Nazarea Andrews

Check out Nazarea Andrews next book, Dirty Sexy Secret; doesn’t it look hot?? I’m lookng forward to this one!

image

Even when you know better….
There are a million reasons why Hazel Campton is off limits: she’s a journalist. I’m a cop. Oh, and she’s my foster sister.
My secret is I didn’t care. I haven’t stopped wanting her since I slept with her the night before she left.
She’s trouble. Always has been.

It’s hard to resist the thing you’ve always wanted…
Growing up with Brandon Archer means I know him. Good. Bad. Everything in between.
It’s just never mattered.
My secret? That night. The one I stole, that’s kept me from Archer and Green County, for four years.
Now I’m home, and nothing has changed. Except me. And not in the way that means a damn thing.
Because I still want him.

Everything can change with a knock at the door…
Secrets. Everyone has them. Archer. Me. This town.
Perfection only runs surface deep in Green County. When there’s a knock at me door, it’s a familiar face all covered in danger, and all those secrets we hide? They’re about to come tumbling out.

The first in a sexy new series about Green County, and the people who serve there.

image

Some people say you can’t go home again. And that is a complete pile of bullshit. You can. It just won’t be home.
I should know. I did it.
Green County doesn’t change. It’s been four years since I bolted and six months since I sucked up all my pride and ego and came back. And it still struck me as strange. Green Co was exactly the same. Same ridiculous festivals. Same leafy boulevards and parks filled with yoga moms and shrieking children. The same gossips line the coffee shop and eye me when I step in.
They’ll chatter my every move to Elijah later, cooing over him while warning that I was too skinny, too wild too rude too too too.
They did the same thing in high school.
Nothing changed in Green Co. If you want change you go somewhere else and you let it wrap you up tight and fight like hell to keep from being dragged back.
Elijah gets pissy when I say shit like that. But Eli never left Green Co. Never felt the need to get out, to see and shape the world. He’s always been more than happy to see and shape the County.
And you know, he was right. He was good at it. I loved that he cared so much about Green Co. That he wanted to save the little Kansas county from itself.
Someone had to.
I flash the ladies a smile as I order two extra large iced coffees. Cindy grins at me, punching in the order and adding a slice of banana bread and her boxed lunch.
“Long day, Hazel?”
I smile, a half quirk of my lips that passes as a grin these days. “It’s a day ending in Y, Cins. Those are always long.”
She gives me a smirk that tips toward worry. “You need a day off, sugar.”
I make a face, and drop a twenty on the counter as I take my order. “I don’t even know what I’d do with that much free time.”
She arches an eyebrow at me and I grin at her.
“Hazel, my love,” Gabe says, sailing through the door of the coffee shop as I turn away from the counter.
I swallow the grin before it twists into a smirk. “Gabriel,” I say, almost frosty and he laughs.
Smug bastard.
“We should carpool, love, if we’re going to keep meeting like this. Save the planet and all.”
“Because you care so much about the damn planet,” I scoff, and he makes a face, all wounded dignity.
The problem with that face is that I know Gabe. I’ve known him my whole life.
Gabe is everything I ran away from when I left Green Co. Everything I wanted to forget. The smirk that means trouble and the too sharp eyes that sees right through my quick easy lies and watches with concern when I isolate.
Fucking bastard is my neighbor. He’s too damn close for comfort and too damn nosy for his own good.
And coming from an investigative journalist, that’s pretty fucking nosy.

Review – LISTEN TO ME by Kristen Proby

Kristen Proby has a brand new release! The first book in her Fusion series is now live!! And there’s an added bonus of a song to go along with the book! Check it out below.

img_4743

image

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy…exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

image

Kristen Proby’s Love Under The Big Sky series is one of my favourites, so of course, I jumped at the chance to read the first book from her brand new series, especially with how seductive the synopsis had it sounding. It’s probably no big surprise that it only took one day for me to read this book. The story was entrancing and the characters inviting; it was so easy to get lost in their lives.

I loved Jake and Addison! I loved how strong but at times vulnerable Addie was, and I loved how Jake almost came across vulnerable because he didn’t realise his own strengths, but he was always there when Addie needed him, even when she didn’t know that she needed him. Add into the mix an exclusive song written and recorded just for this book (from Jake to Addie) and we are definitely onto a winner! (If I Had Never Met You is available to buy from iTunes and Amazon right now!!)

It wasn’t just Jake and Addison I loved, I have mapped out stories for all her friends, and I am so excited for all of them! Three out of the four friends and co-owners of Seduction really stood out for me: Kat, the uber cool and spunky friend; Mia, the workaholic chef friend; and Cami, the hopelessly in love friend who I am most desperate to read about! I didn’t feel like there was that much of a connection between Riley and myself as the reader until right towards the end, so I’m interested to know more about her. maybe she will be the dark horse whose story will knock it out of the park.

Adult contemporary has become my favourite genres thanks to the likes of Kristen Proby. Listen To Me was another tantalising read to add to her growing list of fantastic books! Bring on the rest of the series; Cami’s up next, and I cannot wait!!

Double Review – TWISTED PERFECTION and SIMPLE PERFECTION by Abbi Glines

I have had a love of Abbi Glines books for many years, and I’ve just recently started to catch up. I read Twisted Perfection way back in 2013, flash forward 3 years *cringes at the long wait* and I finally read the 2nd and final part to Woods and Della’s story, Simple Perfection. Read both reviews below, and get clicking!

 twisted perfection

image

Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…

Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.

What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…

image

Way back in 2013 when I was hopelessly in love with Rush Finlay, and had a fairly deep dislike of Woods Kerrington, author extraordinaire, Abbi Glines wrote and released Twisted Perfection…all about the guy I didn’t like. *sigh*

I wasn’t looking forward to spending more time with him, but being as I loved this authors books, I dived right in. Oh my. I all of a sudden had a whole new appreciation for this character, going as far as to say that he knocked Rush out of the way to be my favourite Rosemary Beach hottie!!

I absolutely loved this book!!! Woods and Della and Rush and Blaire and all the rest of the crew. I loved it all and I didn’t want it to end. Without a doubt one of my favourite Abbi Glines books to date.

image

***

 simple perfection

image

Woods had his perfect life mapped out for him. Rise up the ranks of the family business. Marry the rich girl of his parents’ dreams. Pretend that wealth and privilege was all he’d ever wanted. Then a girl named Della breezed into town, a beautifully imperfect stranger who captured his heart and opened his eyes to a new kind of future. Woods is ready and willing to sacrifice everything for her when the sudden death of his father leaves him with his mother to care for and a business to manage.

Della is determined to be strong for Woods, even as she’s quietly falling to pieces. No matter how far from home she’s run, the ghosts of her past have never stopped haunting her. Struggling to hide her true feelings from Woods, Della fears she can’t be his rock without dragging him down into the darkness with her. But is she strong enough to let go of the last thing holding her together?

image

I have to say, I wasn’t anywhere near as addicted to this book as I used to be with Abbi’s books (it’s been a few years). It was an ok read for the most part, and I felt one pivotal scene was really rushed, but then for the last 30% it really picked up and I ended the book with a smile on my face, after wiping away a few sneaky tears.

It was great to be back in Rosemary Beach, and I’m not sure why the first half of the story didn’t quite work for me, but I loved the final 30% so much!! There was so much drama and emotion, and yes, I may have shed a quick tear. Along with breaking the hearts of readers across the land, Abbi Glines also set up the next few characters books in this much loved series.

I’m looking forward to Grant and Harlow, up next!

Review – TOO LATE by Colleen Hoover

A free book from Colleen Hoover?? Yes, please! I loved Too Late! You can read it on Wattpad (free site/app) now!!

image

Sloan will go through hell and back for her little brother. And she does, every single night.

Forced to remain in a relationship with the dangerous and corrupt Asa Jackson, Sloan will do whatever it takes to make sure her brother has what he needs.

Nothing will get in her way.

Nothing except Carter.

Sloan is the only good thing to ever happen to Asa. He knows this and he never plans on letting her go; even if she doesn’t approve of his lifestyle. But despite Sloan’s disapproval, Asa knows what it takes to get what he wants. He knows what he needs to do to remain on top.

Nothing will get in his way.

888Nothing except Carter.

image

Whoa. What a book!! And for free! It was great but also torture to read this book as it was being written. The amount of times I refreshed my notifications on Wattpad just to see if there was an update yet was ridiculous. This book obsessed me. It was the last thing I checked at night (there were a lot of nights up until 3.30am checking for new chapters) and it was the first thing I did on a morning, and then repeatedly throughout the day.

I loved all the characters, even the ones I hated. Man, Asa was an absolute nut job! But he was so freaking funny at times! “It’s my f***ing cake!” “F***ing whore.” Until you read the book, you won’t understand the levels of hilarity in those words. So for that alone, you need to read it!

But on a serious note, Too Late was another hit from Colleen Hoover, and it is now officially complete!! Once the book receives 1 million hits on Wattpad then she will write an epilogue, but for now, it’s done, it’s epic, and it’s a book which is definitely a must!

*this book is free to read on Wattpad*

Review – HE WILL BE MY RUIN by KA Tucker

So. Freaking. Good. You need to read this book, as soon as possible.

image

The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her suspense debut with this sexy, heartpounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend’s death, a story pulsing with the “intense, hot, emotional” (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.

A woman who almost had it all . . .

On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation . . .

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what’s left of her best friend’s belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine’s apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine’s private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

image

This man was once my salvation. Now he will be my ruin.

WHY???? Why did I leave it so long to read this book? I am KICKING myself!! I was excited for this book, for still, for some reason, I was hesitant to actually pick it up. And I have no idea why because as soon as I did finally turn that first page, I could not stop!!

Talk about an edge of your seat read! There’s a hashtag going around with this book — #ISuspectEveryone — and oh how fitting! Because I honestly did suspect everyone!! Even the poor old dear next door. I had next to no idea where this book was going or what would happen next, and I was like an addict desperate and needy for more!

I know I’ve completely abused the use of the exclamation, but trust me, they are all worthy! This book was just that good!! And yes, there was a romance, and though I didn’t know who the true suspect was, I knew who I didn’t want it to be. And man, it was so hard to know who to trust that it made my crush awfully difficult, but by no means less thrilling; in fact, it probably made it even no so!

So in case you haven’t gathered yet, He Will Be My Ruin is a book I wholeheartedly recommend to each and every one of you! I’ve certainly learnt my lesson with this book; I won’t be leaving it so long to read a book by KA Tucker again.

Review – UNSEEN MESSAGES by Pepper Winters

Seriously, just go and buy this book right now. I can’t handle how much I love it.

unseen messages

image

“There is a message for everything. From handwritten to verbal, seen and unseen. Messages exist all around us.”

But what if you don’t see?
What if you don’t understand?
What if, by ignoring the message, your life is never the same again?

Estelle Evermore morphed from nobody to somebody overnight.
Galloway Oak put his past behind him and endeavoured to make his fortune using his trade.

Two strangers.
One plane.
Multiple unseen messages.

From sky to island, they find neither fame nor skills can save them. Stripped from society and left alone to survive the elements, the very task of staying alive outweighs all other needs.

Until survival turns to desire.
And desire turns to danger.

From New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters comes a timeless love story answering the question of what happens when everything is stripped away.

image

Our island hadn’t changed. But my God, our world had.

I just don’t even know where to start with this book. There’s so much that I want to say, but because of spoilers, I just can’t. But I hope you I at least make you realise just how bone deep I loved this story. I mean, I’m not a fan of long books. I’m too easily distracted and I get bored waiting to find out how the story ends. I didn’t realise when I first started, but Unseen Messages is close to 600 pages. 600 pages filled with such a powerful, heartfelt, and heartbreaking story, and not once did I ever get distracted or bored. In fact, I would have quite willingly read 600 more.

It was that good. It was that good, that even though I know I would never survive being stranded on an island, I found myself wanting to be! I spent the three days it took me to read it, dreaming about it, and I’ve not been able to get it out my head since I finally put the book down. My heart actually feels heavy that it’s over. I miss the characters, the life, the story. I miss it all. Because this author created something so spectacular. So special. And I’m begging anyone who has ever listened to my recommendations, and even those of you who haven’t, to please pick up this book!

I really don’t want to go into the story, because the synopsis doesn’t tell you much, and as far as I’m concerned, if the author wanted you to know anything before reading the book itself, they’d put it in the synopsis. But this book has so much more to offer. So much despair, so much hope, so much destruction, so much love, so much heartache, so many moments! The “moments” that you know you”ll never be able to forget. The moments that you hold in your heart, long after you’ve closed the book. The moments that, combined with everything else, lead you to one heck of an intense book hangover.

Unseen Messages is not only one of my favourite books of the year, but by far, one of the very best books I’ve ever read.

“Woman, you’ve had this power over me all along…You just didn’t pay attention.”

“Are you saying I’m unobservant?”

“I’m saying you’re everything I’ve ever wanted.”

Review – WALK THE EDGE by Katie McGarry

I am so in love with this series!

walk the edge

image

One moment of recklessness will change their worlds

Smart. Responsible. That’s seventeen-year-old Breanna’s role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyber-bully’s line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas “Razor” Turner into her life.

Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don’t belong. But when he learns she’s being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it’s time to step outside the rules.

And so they make a pact: he’ll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she’ll help him seek answers to the mystery that’s haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they’re both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they’re going from here.

image

The boy everyone sees but nobody knows is with the girl who everybody knows but nobody sees.

The second book in Katie McGarry’s Thunder Road series is here and just as addictive and consuming as its predecessor. I absolutely loved Razor and Bre’s story, and it was so good to be back with these characters (yes, we get to see some of our favourites from Nowhere But Here, as well as meet some newbies).

Razor and Be…what can I say about these two? Though their love was certainly beautiful, their lives were wrought with strife, which together, made for such a gripping read! One sitting is all it took for me to read this book from beginning to end, and I thoroughly enjoyed every heart-breaking, heart-pounding, and heart-felt moment packed within the pages.

Was there anything I didn’t like about Walk The Edge? In short, the answer is no. Razor’s book was long awaited for me, and it was well worth the time it took to reach my book-hungry hands. I devoured this beautiful, emotional read with eager eyes and a full heart. I loved every second!

“That works for me, too.”

“I’m here about your mother.” The asshole knows he has me when my eyes snap to his.
“She’s dead.” Like the other times I say the words, a part of me dies along with her. This guy has green eyes and they soften like he’s apologetic. “I know. I’m sorry. I’ve received some new evidence that may help us discover what caused her death.”
Anger curls within my muscles and my jaw twitches. This overwhelming sense of insanity is what I fight daily. For years, I’ve heard the whispers from the gossips in town, felt the stares of the kids in class, and I’ve sensed the pity of the men in the Reign of Terror I claim as brothers. It’s all accumulated to a black, hissing doubt in my soul.
Suicide.
It’s what everyone in town says happened. It’s in every hushed conversation people have the moment I turn my back. It’s not just from the people I couldn’t give two shits about, but the people who I consider family.
I shove away those thoughts and focus on what my father and the club have told me—what I have chosen to believe. “My mother’s death was an accident.”
He’s shaking his head and I’m fresh out of patience. I’m not doing this. Not with him. Not with anyone. “I’m not interested.”
I push off the railing and I did out the keys to my motorcycle as I bound down the steps. The detective’s behind me. He has a slow steady stride and it irritates me that he follows across the yard and doesn’t stop coming as I swing my leg over my bike.
“What if I told you I don’t think it was an accident,” he says.
Odds are it wasn’t. Odds are every whispered taunt in my direction is true. That my father and the club drove Mom crazy, and I wasn’t enough of a reason for her to choose life.
To drown him out, I start the engine. This guy must be as suicidal as people say Mom was because he eases in front of my bike assuming I won’t run him down.
“Thomas,” he says.
I twist the handle to rev the engine in warning. He raises his chin like he’s finally pissed and his eyes narrow on me. “Razor.”
I let the bike idle. If he’s going to respect me by using my road name, I’ll respect him for a few seconds. “Leave me the fuck alone.”
Damn if the man doesn’t possess balls the size of Montana. He steps closer to me and drops a bomb. “I have reason to believe your mom was murdered.”

Review – THE HURRICANE by RJ Prescott

Emily McCarthy is living in fear of a dark and dangerous past. A gifted mathematician, she is little more than a hollow, broken shell, trying desperately to make ends meet long enough to finish her degree.

Through an unlikely friendship with the aging, cantankerous owner of an old boxing gym, Em is thrown into the path of the most dangerous man that she has ever met.

Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell is cut, tattooed and dangerous. He is a lethal weapon with no safety and everyone is waiting for the mis-fire. He’s never been knocked out before, but when he meet Em he falls, HARD. Unlike any other girl he’s ever met, she doesn’t want anything from him, but just being around her makes him want to be a better person.

They are polar opposites who were never meant to find each other, but some things are just worth the fight.

“If you need time, then I’ll give you time. If you need friendship, then I’ll give you friendship. But you’re mine, and when the time is right, when you’re ready, I’m coming for you.”

Why did I leave it so long to read this book??? There’s not many things I love more than a good book about a rough tough guy who falls hard for the woman in his life, and The Hurricane by RJ Prescott had me swooning over Cormac ‘The Hurricane’ O’Connell from page one. It’s been a while since I’ve read a fighter romance and this book reminded me just why I love them so much.

Cormac and Emily had such a great romance. The type where you know they’re destined to be, and Cormac would do anything to make it possible, including starting out as friends until the fragile and shy Emily felt ready. She had been through such a lot of pain and torment, and she was constantly living in fear. Suddenly being pursued by a giant of a fighter was not in her plans, but just maybe, he might be the very thing she needed? I loved just about everything about these two, though I have to say, I wasn’t keen on her constantly calling him “O’Connell”–it felt too impersonal.

There’s one thing you can almost guarantee in books about fighters, and that is the people they have in their corner. Their family. And I don’t mean blood relations either. Cormac had such a tightknit group of people behind him, and then once Emily entered the fold, she too was welcomed with open arms. And who wouldn’t want to be loved and protected by the loveable rogues who box at Danny’s Gym?

I not only loved Cormac and Emily, but I also loved Danny, Kieran, Tommy, Nikki, and everyone else who was a part of Cormac and Emily’s circle, and I really hope we see books for some of those in the future. There of course, are characters who I loved to hate. Cormac’s mum, Katrina, and Frank to name a few. Though I hated their vile characters and the things they did, I loved what they brought to the story.

The Hurricane ended with a fantastic epilogue, and though there wasn’t a cliffhanger, it was definitely set up for the second book the series, The Aftermath. I absolutely cannot wait to see what the sequel brings for Cormac, Emily and the rest of the crew.
