Our love is imperfect in the most perfect way. It is love done our way. Raw. Unconventional. Sexy as hell. Most importantly, it is honest to the core, or so I think. One little, white lie shouldn’t do so much damage. Yet, it changes me forever.
The worst part is that Declan whispered that sweet nothing out of protection. My safety is on the forefront of his mind, especially since there are others who’d hurt me simply to get at him. I never think that he would be the one to cut me so deeply. And it all starts with that first prick—the night he saved my life.
Sarah J. Pepper specializes in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit? Get a glimpse inside her head at http://www.sarahjpepper.com

Synopsis


Mena Constantine is pissed off.

Finally freed from her fifty-year imprisonment by a maniacal leader, she is desperately trying to recover and get her life back. Problem is, the life she had is long gone.

Asher Crane is a dead man.
As a Guardian to the King, his only purpose in life is to keep the King alive. And he’s failing. Miserably. With the King ill, the Queen dying, and zero plans for a successor, he’s pretty much screwed. Because if the King dies, the law says Asher dies, too.

Excerpt
© Copyright 2016 Annie Anderson
Mena
He’s not going to explain a freaking thing to me, I think as his mouth settles into a firm line. Asher’s eyes appear half pissed off and half sad. He looks like he’s struggling with something, but he’s not saying anything. I haven’t spent that much time with Asher, but I can tell getting words out of him will take some engine grease and possibly a crowbar.
I think I’d rather skip the part where he has to let me down slow.
“Okay. We’ll talk about it later,” I concede with a shrug and shake of my head.
In the grand scheme of things, I have a pretty good idea of what he’ll say. I mean, honestly? Who would pick a girl like me? I’m not sure how this whole Wraith mating stuff goes, but if the man has a choice, he has to prefer a better crop than me.
I don’t need to be worrying about this now anyway. So what if I felt a connection to the first man probably ever? So what if I clung to him like a monkey on a tree? So what if I feel safe with him, a feeling I haven’t had in a very long time? So freaking what? I don’t deserve a man like him. After the lives I’ve taken… happiness just isn’t in the cards for me.
“I’m all right. It’s not going to hurt. I didn’t even notice it was dislocated before now. It’ll get popped back in, I’ll be able to heal and walk. Win-win. You can go. I’ll be fine,” I tell him, my voice sounding almost dead even to my ears. I need to cut this off as soon as possible. His face tells me he is reluctant, but he needs to go.
“Come on Asher,” Evan says at his elbow, and she escorts him from the room, practically dragging him behind her up the stairs.
My eyes are on the stairs long after he disappears from my sight. In those moments, I take the time to shore up my heart. I don’t need to rely on Asher. I shouldn’t even rely on Aurelia or Rhys or prey on the hospitality of the Wraiths.
I should do the right thing. For once, I should do what I’ve always needed to do. But I need to be able to walk to do it.

Review

“We all have people who carry us through the worst of times, the saddest of times, the times that seem impossible to break free from.”

Seriously?!? I cannot even explain how this book ripped my heart out, but somehow made it all right with the ending. It’s a Young Adult story of first loves… forever loves. It’s a roller coaster of emotions that I highly suggest you do NOT read in public (you will cry. just go with it and have tissues on hand).

“I don’t know me without you…”

The synopsis gives nothing away of the magic that’s in the pages of ‘A Thousand Boy Kisses’. While reading it, I started to get a strong feeling as to where the story was headed. I was completely wrong. About all of it. The story line takes a complete detour from where I thought it was going and brings you on a journey that you need to read.

Young love is really so rare. To find your soul mate from a young age…. most say it’s almost impossible. You eventually grow up and become who you were meant to be. You start to drift from certain people. But what if that person you met at such a young age was really who you were meant to spend eternity with?

Rune and Poppy are just two halves of a whole. Circumstances beyond their control will pull them apart and try to change their destiny. In the end, the truth hurts worse than anything Rune could ever imagine. It becomes the toughest thing he’ll ever have to struggle with.

To keep this review spoiler-free, is super hard. The best parts of the story revolve around pieces that I can’t share because you need to experience them the way I did. You need to go in not knowing.

5 out of 5 stars

•Elastic Heart by Mary Catherine Gebhard • Blog Tour w/review•

Title: Elastic Heart
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Release Date: Feb 25, 2016
Find on Goodreads
What do you do when the man who raped you has the entire police force in his pocket? When you’re called a slut, a whore, and a liar? You get your own justice.
My name is Nami DeGrace, and six months ago I was a normal college student. I was volunteering on the campaign of a man I believed in, a man I thought to be good and noble. Then one night that man forced himself on me and everything changed.
The media reviled me. The police didn’t believe me. My friends abandoned me. I dropped out of college and only have one mission in life: make him pay. That is, until Nick Law came in to my life.
Indomitable, infuriating, and irresistible, Law is complicating things.
Law gripped the back of my neck and pulled me into him. It wasn’t a kiss—it was a merging. I didn’t just taste the power, I felt the cutting intensity throughout my body. I responded instantly, wrapping my arms around his neck and moaning into his mouth. Law stopped and undid my hands from his neck. I opened my eyes, confused.
“Can’t have you waking everyone up,” Law said, grinning. “Be good and you’ll be rewarded.” I wanted to rebel at that. I nearly slapped him across the face. Yet deep inside, his words made me glow. I dropped my arms to my sides and waited for instructions.
Law traced a finger from my cheek down to my collarbone and carefully brushed aside my cotton shirt. I shivered as my shoulder became exposed. Bending down, he placed a light kiss on the tip of my shoulder. I bit my lip to keep from whimpering.
“Good girl,” Law murmured against my skin. It took all my willpower not to grip Law by his powerful shoulders. I didn’t want him to stop, though, so that meant playing by his rules. I kept my hands next to my sides because that meant Law would continue kissing me.
Law placed a hand on my stomach and I gasped.
“Shh…” Using his other thumb, Law tugged my bottom lip. “You have a beautiful mouth, Dandelion. Don’t let it get us in trouble.” I was speechless, or at least I thought I was. My thoughts got jumbled up with his hands on my mouth and my stomach.
Then he did something amazing.
Something reckless.
He slid his hand from my stomach and beneath my jeans.

Review

“The biggest tragedy of your life will be you not realizing how amazing you truly are.”

I love the details…. when an author takes the time to make sure to get all the little nuances correct. From the first page with the ‘rape kit’ scenario, Mary Catherine Gebhard reels you in to a story that is built on all aspects of fear that a victim experiences. There are no holds barred. It’s ugly and sad and will make you angry. The one thing it won’t do is make you regret reading it.

“I’m afraid I’ll never be myself again.”

Nami is trying to pick up the pieces of her life after she is raped by a man who is in the public eye. No one believes her. She loses her friends and is forced to go into hiding because the media paints a very ugly picture of her. Nami is a sinking ship in the vast ocean of depression, until Nick Law comes into her life and refuses to give up on her.

The key word in Elastic Heart is Trust. How does someone earn back the ability to trust others? Once you’re stripped of it, you become a shell of a person. That is Nami. Just a shell trying to seek revenge on the person who caused all the damage in her life. Nick comes into her life and tries to show her just how strong she is. Her world fell apart, yet she didn’t crumble. She stood up and kept going when most people would raise their white flag and give up.. on life.

“It was where he held pieces of me I hadn’t known still existed”

This one held my attention from the first page, all the way until the end. It had me second guessing certain characters and not trusting anyone, right along with Nami. I just couldn’t stop reading, once I started.

5 out of 5 stars

*****

Mary Catherine Gebhard bites off more than she can chew and sometimes calls herself Eva Natsumi. She’s lived in Salt Lake City, Utah her entire life, but occasionally goes on vacation from reality. Don’t worry, she sends postcards.
