Losing Forever – Blitz

Book Details:
Losing Forever
by Tara Gallina
(The Forever Series, #6)
Publication date:
September 17th 2020
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:

Healing doesn’t happen overnight. Neither does falling in love. 

Braylee

Frankenstein has nothing on this twenty-year-old. Okay. Maybe a few more stitches in a few more places but we both were sewn back together. 

A year and a half ago, I lost my family in an accident that left me scarred inside and out and with a sizable inheritance I refuse to spend. Money can’t bring me happiness. No touch can bring me comfort, and desire—forget it. Who’s going to want me like this? 

That’s what I thought until Grayson came into my life. 

The ex-baseball star has a list of home runs on the field and off. He’s all wrong for me, possibly broken beyond repair. I can’t help him. I’m still trying to fix myself. 

But when he’s near, parts of me spark back to life. And when he looks at me, I feel like my old self or a version of her. 

How wrong would it be to pursue this thing between us? Could I handle it? Should I bother finding out? 

Grayson

Damaged? Me? Maybe a little. Fine,a lot. But I’ve been through some shit. 

It’s not every day you find out your dad’s a liar and a criminal who launders money for the mafia. Trust issues are only one of my problems. Trouble has a way of finding me or maybe I create it. I turned down an offer to play in MLB and quit the game. 

At twenty-two, I’m a walking disaster, which is fine as long as I keep my guard up and don’t bring anyone into my mess. 

That was the plan until Braylee entered my life. 

How can someone who’s lost so much face the world with more strength than I have in my batting arm? I want to devour her and shelter her at the same time. 

I’m trying to be good. But that’s never worked for me in the past, especially when all I want to do is tear down her walls, her clothes, and anything else she’s hiding behind.

 *Spin-off to The Forever Series. Standalone.

The People We Met Along The Way – Blitz

The People We Meet Along The Way
by Beth Rinyu
Publication date: September 17th 2020
Genres: Romance, Women’s Fiction


Synopsis:

Would you be able to grant the same forgiveness to someone else that you’re so desperately seeking yourself?

Jillian O’Rourke’s marriage died long before her husband’s tragic accident. Years of battling with infertility and demanding careers melted their once solid relationship. Bearing the burden of guilt over his death, Jillian gets lost in despair and a series of what ifs. But one chance encounter with a stranger, changes everything. Now being faced with newfound knowledge and a painful decision, Jillian must push past her anger, learn to forgive and open her heart in ways she never could’ve imagined.  As she comes to grips with the devastation of her past, she learns to embrace the possibility of a future she never thought possible.  A bittersweet story of love, forgiveness, and the unexpected destiny that is sometimes handed to us in life from the people we meet along the way.


Excerpt:

“I just wish you didn’t hate me so much.” I concentrated on the coffee in my cup
as I swirled the wooden stirrer round and round. 

“I don’t hate you,” I said, focusing my attention back to him. “I hate what we did. I hate that I let it define who I was for so long, and I hate that I hurt someone cared about so much because of it. But I don’t hate you—you were just one of the many cracks in my life.” 

He creased his forehead. “I don’t understand.” 

I gazed at him long and hard, finally fearless of the shame the man staring back at me conjured up inside of me. He held no control over me, and he never had. I stood up and pushed my chair in as he sat there waiting for an explanation. “And I wouldn’t have expected you to. Goodbye, Jonathan.”

AUTHOR BIO:

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard. I love creating deep characters who you will love or love to hate.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? My happy place is a seat by the ocean with my feet in the sand or on the busy streets of New York City. You will more than likely find one of these places as the setting for most of my books.

StillWell

Stillwell
A Haunting on Long Island Book 1
by Michael Phillip Cash
Genre: Paranormal Thriller Mystery

Blurb:
Paul Russo’s wife just died. While trying to get his family’s life back in order, Paul is being tormented by a demon who is holding his wife’s spirit hostage on the other side. His fate is intertwined with an old haunted mansion on the north shore of Long Island called Stillwell Manor. Paul must find clues dating back hundreds of years to set his wife’s soul free.
Only .99 cents!!


Excerpt:

Paul turned from the dark window, twitching the drapes back in place. It was cold in the house; it had the dank feel of being unused. It had only been empty for a week, and yet it held a stale feeling of overripe food and decaying garbage.

The kids would be coming home tomorrow. He had sent them to his sister’s place for the past week. It was too hard to have to worry about their schedules when he was sitting by Allison’s side. The funeral was yesterday, and he asked his sister to keep them one more day. He needed to have some time to collect himself. He’d spent the last twenty-four hours sitting in the dark, staring at nothing, his mind too numb to think Lisa had taken over with the brisk efciency of the nurse that she was trained to be. Stella was eating once again and Jesse and his twin, Veronica, were able to sleep at night. His sister’s was the safe house, and while he desperately missed his children, he couldn’t deal with their everyday drama while he stayed with Allison for her nal weeks.

He played with the chain around his neck then placed the gold band that hung from it on his lips. He closed his eyes, feeling alone. It was his wife’s wedding band and it had never left her nger from the time he had placed it there almost fteen years ago.


Everything happened so fast. Too fast. His mind replayed the last six months in a montage of colors ashing like an out-of-control merry-go-round. Only it wasn’t a happy ride. Well, he sighed, he had to admit that he did feel relief. It felt wrong to have this burden taken off his shoulders, but his wife didn’t have to suffer any- more. He admitted to himself that he was weary too. She had gone from bad to worse in such a short time. She had slipped into a coma. He held her skeletal hand for a solid week, watching hope die alongside his wife. His family had brought in food, but he felt no hunger. As he stayed by her side, nothing seemed important. Paul stared at her face, memorizing every curve, her deep dimple, the mole she hated above her upper lip. Every second counted, and he wouldn’t waste a minute on himself.

His future yawned ahead in a great vastness of nothing that stretched endlessly before him. Alone, mute, and his thoughts jumbled in his head, he couldn’t nd words to say what he needed. Did she know how happy she had made him? Did Allison understand how much she meant to him? Could she know that his heart was so numb, he felt as though he were a corpse? Though he sat caressing her hand, could his wife sense the man next to her was spent, empty? It was that burnt-out feeling like after drinking so much that the liquor loses its taste and cigarettes burn with dying re.The irony was that he was the smoker, even though he had stopped when the twins were born, thirteen years ago. Allison wouldn’t have it in the house.

He cheated at work, chewing gum to disguise the smell on his breath. It had always been a huge ght, and while she painted all kinds of devastating scenarios if he continued to smoke, they never expected her to be the one to fall victim to cancer.

The twins were a rare handful for them. Married for just over a year, they were unprepared for the incessant work. He was building his reputation as a go-to guy for the McMansions that dotted Long Island’s North Shore. The pull of work and two newborns tested their marriage. Allison breast-fed until utter exhaustion—or as he liked to call it “udder” exhaustion—made her stop. She always laughed at that.

An Unquenchable Excess Of Love

Author: Anjutha Ranganathan

Publisher: Notion Press

Pages: 247


Review:

I read this book a few days ago, as soon as I could get my hands on this copy, and now I’m completely in love with this book. Each and every sentence will make you feel relatable to the content. Some of the poems touched me so deeply. The author uses simple words to make it easy for everyone, read it once, you’ll get the meaning easily at the first try, as it has straightforward words without complications. The author crafted it with simple usage of words yet its an adorable collection.

Book divides into three sections,

1. The Falling – (part I loved the most)
“Tonight my eyes will speak a million untold mesmerizing
tales.
Are you ready to listen to it all?

2. The Breaking – (these poetries breaks me a little)
“You showed me the stars when in doom, now those
stars are far away,
never to be reached”

3. The Healing – (It’s like, burn me down, I’ll fly through the fire. Comfortable poetry section)
” For all it takes is only little diligence
to reach the skies”


Each section of this collection focuses on a topic related to the three stages of love and also this makes it a perfect book to pick up either when in need of healing, falling, and positivity. The positivity that she puts in this book through her words provides comfort and this makes it a refreshing book. It inspires you to be a courageous person, filled with positivity, and and feelings that you can’t deny.
The book talks about some of life’s perfect little moments and also makes us believes that everything’s gonna be alright, even when you’re not in a position to smile, some of the poems will definitely make our lips curve into a smile (Especially at pg 44, Surrender, etc). I’m so glad that I read this book, thanks to the author who penned this incredibly awesome poetry collection.

Excerpt:

What troubles you, my king?” she asked as he approached. “Is it Minthe? May I suggest lye to remedy the
situation? It is quite painful when swallowed.”
Hades raised a brow. “Murderous thoughts already, Hecate? It isn’t even noon yet.”
She smiled. “I am more creative at night.”
Hades chuckled, and they fell into a comfortable silence. Hades, lost in his own thoughts. Hecate, staring
at the moon. After a moment, she asked him again, “What troubles you?”
“The Fates,” he said.
“Oh, the besties. What have they done?”
“They have given me a wife,” he said, raising both his brows. “Demeter’s daughter.”
Hecate laughed and quickly covered her mouth with her hand at Hades’ arched glance. 
“S-Sorry,” she said, and cleared her throat, composing herself. “Is she horrible?”
“No,” Hades said. “That’s probably the worst part. She is beautiful.”
“Then why are you so glum?”
Hades explained the trajectory of his evening in as few words as possible—Aphrodite’s bargain, seeing
Persephone for the first time, realizing his primal reaction to claim her was unusual, and uncovering the
thread that connected them.
“You should have seen how she looked at me when she realized who I was. She was horrified.”
“I doubt she was horrified,” Hecate said. “Surprised, perhaps—maybe even mortified if her thoughts were
anything like yours.”
Hecate gave him a knowing look, but Hades was not so sure. Hecate had not been there. 
“I have never known you to back down from a challenge, Hades.”

Indebted – Blitz

Book Details:
Indebted
by C. Hallman & J.L. Beck
(King Crime Family Series, #1)
Publication date: September 7th, 2020
Genres: Adult, Dark Romance, Romance

Synopsis:
It was a debt to be settled, a price to be repaid.

Sold. My body, mind, and soul, are given to the most terrifying man I’ve ever met.

Enzo King.

Violent, commanding, gorgeous, and sinister.

He’s a killer, a thief, and feared by many.

He has the ability to pin me to the ground with one single look and make me feel things I don’t want too.

Feeding off my fears, he holds me captive in his mansion away from the rest of the world.

I know what’s to come.
He’ll break me.
Take it from me.
Own me.
Soon enough my life will no longer be my own, but his.

Every part of my body, every breath I take, and every beat of my heart will belong to him.

He’s determined to settle the debt by taking everything from me, what he doesn’t know is that he’ll never have my soul or my love.

**This book was previously published in 2014 under the title Indebted but has been completely rewritten with new character names, and a more in-depth storyline. You’re not getting the same story from before.**


Excerpt:
A groan escapes her lips, and I smile against her mouth knowing full well she enjoys my lips on hers. I coax her lips open, slowly invading her mouth with my own. She tastes delectable, and I feel as if I won’t ever be able to get enough of her. 

Her small hands skim across my chest and onto my back. Her nails rake my skin, and I’m on the verge of losing the last shred that is holding me back from taking her right here and now.

Pulling back, I take in the red splotches spreading across her cheeks as her big, brown, doe eyes look back at me. She looks a bit taken back but more importantly, she seems thoroughly satisfied. 

“Not so much of a monster now, am I?” I joke, my finger swiping across her plump bottom lip.  “You’re still a monster…” she retorts, pulling away from me as if she is embarrassed to have kissed me, and enjoyed it. 
“Remember that sweetheart, when I bury my face between those creamy thighs of yours,” I smirk as I get up from the bed.

“There is no good and evil in this world, Piccolo. It’s just me, and that’s something you’re going to need to learn really fast. My patience for your misunderstanding is running really thin.” My grip tightens ever so slightly as I think about sliding my tongue across the sensitive part of her neck. 

“There is no misunderstanding. Only questions that you are not willing to answer,” she grits out between breaths. Her eyes are filled with lust, and I have half the mind to push this shit off the table and throw her down, push her panties to the side and slam into her over and over again. 

Instead, I smile at her sinfully. I release her as if her skin burns me and go back to my glass of wine.

“There is a special place in hell for people like you,” she spits at me. Her words mean nothing to me. At least they shouldn’t.

“We’re already in hell…”

About :
Once upon a time…
There is a girl with skin as fair as ivory and hair as black as night.
She was the apple of her father’s eye, but now that he has died,
someone wants to dip that apple into poison.
Advised to flee, Ivory escapes her elite world in New York City
and stumbles into a place she didn’t know existed.
A modern-day princess, afraid and lost on the dark streets, running for her life.
Ivory White has no one to call, nowhere to turn.
All she has is a random number scrawled on a torn napkin.
She calls. He answers.
Ivory is thrust into a house filled with misfits—

a band of completely untrustworthy men.
But can this group of men keep her safe?


Excerpt:

She looked like someone who’d just stepped out of a storybook. Nothing about her belonged here in my world.

Even though her clothes were casual, they were far too upscale for this place. The fabric was delicate and soft just like her limbs and the way she walked. Her round blue eyes scoured every inch of the place as though she had never been anywhere like this before.

And the hood. The royal-blue hood pulled up over her head was like a cloak, shrouding her in mystery and concealing so much more than just her features.

When I finally got a glimpse of her creamy white skin, I had to force myself not to react. She didn’t look like anyone from my world either. Not her heart-shaped face, perfectly formed chin, or red-rose lips formed in a bow.

A few strands of hair so dark lay against her cheek, and I could only think of black velvet.

That mouth, though. The standoffish, almost haughty way she looked at me, it didn’t really match. Like the storybook she stepped out of had a beautiful cover and artwork, but the interior words were aggressive and messy.
She’s scared.

It became more and more apparent the longer I sat beside her. She felt backed into a corner, into this bar, which was clearly out of her comfort zone. I understood that. I could even make allowances for her aloof, unfriendly behaviour.

I was interested. Definitely intrigued.

Marrying My Billionaire Hookup – Blitz

Book Details:
Marrying My Billionaire Hookup
by Nadia Lee
Publication date: September 12th 2020
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis:

If any of my over-protective brothers ask, I’m pregnant via immaculate conception. Otherwise, the baby I’m carrying could be the death of one hot billionaire…

Jo

After a succession of relationships bad enough to set a Guinness World Record, running into a ruggedly handsome billionaire feels like a sign. Edgar is from out of town, mesmerizing, and his voice reminds me of Louisiana heat. Just listening to him makes my toes curl. So I throw aside all caution and spend the hottest night of my life in his bed, knowing we’ll never see each other again.

Until a positive pregnancy test brings him back into my life. And now he only wants to marry me to do right by the baby, but here’s the thing…

I’ll never settle. I want what my parents have: true love. Nothing — not even the electric chemistry that crackles every time Edgar and I are together — will deter me from that goal.

Edgar

Love is like alcohol. It destroys clarity and impairs judgment. I’ve seen my parents making one bad decision after another in the name of love, destroying our family.

But Jo wants love before she’ll marry me. So I’ll approximate it. Unlike my father, I’ll make sure my child knows she’s cherished (contrary to what Jo thinks, I know it’s a girl). I’m too sensible to fall in love and disrupt my already well-ordered life, even though every second I spend with her feels like skydiving without a parachute…


Excerpt:

At the main door, I run into Yuna Hae, the party’s hostess. Her auburn
hair is down, and she is in the cutest Chanel dress and shoes. I’ve never seen
her look or dress badly—not that I’ve known her for long—and nothing hides her bubbly personality.

She hugs me. “Hey, you made it!”

“I wouldn’t miss this for the world!” I say, hugging her back. “Is Kim her
yet?”

“Nope. She’s being fashionably late, no doubt. But that doesn’t mean
we don’t get to hang out and have fun! Come on, let me introduce you to
some people.” She gestures, pulling me toward the center of the foyer. “You
have no idea how thrilled I am because all of my favorite people are here,
even Edgar.”

“Edgar?”

“Edgar Blackwood. Tony’s older brother. He spends almost all his time running the family business in Louisiana, you know. But I bet he wanted the
special treat I prepared!” She waggles her eyebrows.

“A special treat? Like…a cake or something?”

“Oh, you’ll be amazed. It’s awesome.” She taps the back of a tall, dark-
haired man. He’s talking with someone, but he turns around, green eyes sharp with interest.

I recognize him instantly. Anthony Blackwood. He’s pretty famous—and
infamous—and not only due to his family scandal. He owns some of the best and most popular clubs in the world, including Z here in L.A. He doesn’t seem as cold as his reputation would suggest, although he’
just as well dressed as the pictures I’ve seen. He’s very handsome, his
features finely carved. If it weren’t for the firm lines of his lips and jaw, he’d be pretty.

“Tony, say hello to my friend, Jo Martinez. Jo, Anthony Blackwood.”
He shakes my hand firmly.

“Anthony. Pleasure to meet you.”

“The pleasure’s mine,” I say.

“Ivy’s talked about you. She always appreciates your help.”

My smile grows more genuine. “She’s so lovely.” It’s true. She’s one of the nicest people to work for.

“Have you met my brother?” He gestures at the man he was talking
with, who comes half a step closer.

Anthony is certainly handsome enough, but his brother is… Wow.
Normally I think clothes make the man, wielding the presence he needs
if they have the right combination of color, material and cut. But in this case, clothes seem to be an afterthought. He’s tall, with magnificently broad
shoulders that signal power and dominance. He stands with perfect posture,
his back straight, his head angled just so to show the bold lines of his facial
bones. His features aren’t as elegantly carved as Anthony’s, but there’s rawness to them that’s utterly masculine and hot. And his eyes… They’re
green like Anthony’s, but different. Darker, deeper and completely controlled without being cold.

I wonder what they’d look like when they aren’t so controlled…
Suddenly, the place feels too hot.

My “no” to Anthony’s question comes out a near-breathless whisper. I
clear my throat and add, “I don’t believe so,” then extend my hand. “Jo
Martinez.”

“Edgar,” he says, with a hint of a Southern drawl. “Edgar Blackwood.”
Dios mío, that voice that should be illegal. It brushes over me, as decadent as
velvet, and I suppress a shiver as sensation seems to pool between my legs.
How in the world is he making his name sound like my dirtiest fantasy? My
grandmother would say he’s sold his soul to the devil.

He takes my hand in a soft fingers-only grip and gently pumps it twice.
The contact sends a tingle up my arm, making my neck heat.
“Charmed,” he says.

“Ooh, how nice. Is that what Louisiana gentlemen say when they meet a
lady?”

The green eyes crinkle slightly. “Depends on the lady.”

Oh my God. I bet tons of women sigh over him and make fools of
themselves. I don’t want to be a cliché he won’t even remember two seconds
from now.

But then I feel it… The soft, slow drag of his fingertips as though he
loathes to let me go. And although he’s looking at me calmly enough, I can
see a glimmer of heat in his eyes.

So this is a two-way street. And I can see that he knows it. We share a
moment that Anthony and Yuna are not privy to, even though they’re standing right beside us.
Solemn and somber is not my type. Usually I date men who are easygoing and don’t take themselves or anyone else too seriously.

But maybe he just takes his responsibilities seriously. If I remember
correctly, he’s the eldest Blackwood brother. Rafael acts like the weight of the world rests on his shoulders, so that makes sense. I wonder what Edgar’s like in bed. Is he still serious, even when he’s naked and hard? Does he direct all that serious attention to licking and stroking and fucking?

I try to tamp down a vivid mental movie of Edgar doing exactly that, but
desire sparks anyway. I don’t get it. I’m not the type to mind-strip a man I just met and fantasize about him. I’ve had plenty of hot male clients, and none of them made my hormones spin out of control.

“Would you like to get a drink?” he says, holding my eyes.
If you ask me in that voice, the answer will always be…
“Yes.”
