lovearrives.jpg

Synopsis:

An Unlikely Couple Struggles to Reconcile the Burdens of Their Past

Dani Prescott came to the children’s hospital to spy on Brett Somers–so how did she end up on a date with him? Weeks earlier she’d seen an interview in which he blamed her mother for the plane crash that had killed his parents. But the crash had killed her mother as well, so Dani can’t believe the story Brett’s trying to sell to the media.

Vowing to find a way to discredit the privileged–and maddeningly handsome–Brett, Dani has been following him and taking photos, hoping to find something she can use against him. But when she catches his eye instead, she quickly finds herself offering up a fake name and agreeing to a date. Brett knows this mystery girl is hiding something–but he’s got his own secrets to keep. What will happen when he discovers who she really is? Will Dani and Brett look beyond their own heartaches to discover a love that could heal their deepest pain?

Fresh, flirty, and fast-paced, When Love Arrives is an engaging story that will have readers falling in love with the characters as they navigate the tricky waters between romance and revenge.

Review

A love story at its finest! This is such a great book. There is heartbreak, pain, love and a yearning for God that is phenomenal. I absolutely loved all of the characters! Dani is such a sweet girl that has had a difficult life, she has plans to ruin the man that cursed her mother on live TV. Brett is a selfish man that has done despicable things in his past. They meet, is it by chance or is it Dani’s devious plan to make Brett pay for things he said about her mom? Things are so difficult for her and she tries to hate him but love blossoms. Beyond all odds, they first became friends and then love takes root.

A beautiful love story between a man and his long lost child, a man and woman, and these characters and God. Not only is there the story of Brett and Dani, it is also a story of Meghan (the mother of Brett’s child) and Jonah (Brett’s son that he didn’t know existed, til he was in a coma) and also the story of AJ and Shelby. So many characters and so many stories all wrapped up in a neat little package. Even though there were so many characters, it did not make it confusing at all and the story flowed so well that I found myself zipping through the book just to find out what was going to happen! Suspenseful at the end and a true romantic happily ever after. I really enjoyed this book, the characters are great and the story moves quickly. The story is ultimately about forgiveness! Which is a great reminder to us all! I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I will definitely be recommending this book! I will also be checking into more of what this author has to offer!! A great author and a great book!

Synopsis:

North American Book Award Winner in Mystery

When San Francisco Homicide Inspector Rebecca Mayfield arrives at the scene of a deadly shooting, she’s shocked to find that the witnesses have caught the killer, and that he’s someone she knows. Rebecca’s a by-the-book detective, and she’s always done her job according to the rules, without hesitation … until Richie Amalfi comes back into her life.

Richie knows his way around everything and everyone in his city. When people say they “know a guy who knows a guy,” Richie’s the guy they’re talking about. He can usually help people out of tight situations, but suddenly finds he can’t get himself out of hot water when he’s accused of murder.

Richie’s on the run, and he runs straight to Rebecca to help him prove his innocence. From the nightclubs of North Beach to the scenic heights of Twin Peaks, dangers lurk and more deaths happen. As Rebecca discovers there’s a lot more to Richie than she thought, and a lot more to like than she imagined, she soon fears not only for her life, but also her heart.

 

Review:

Great book!  If you are a big fan of mysteries, then this is the book for you. Not only does it have suspense and a whole lot of mystery but it also has a great love story! There were several twists and turns that kept the pages turning! It is a short book  but it packs a punch. Even though Richie is a troubled guy, you can’t help but root for him! They make such a cute team even if Rebecca doesn’t want to believe it!

There are a lot of characters in this book, but the way the author sets up the story it is easy to follow and very enjoyable. It was definitely a surprise to finally figure out who the bad guys were! It will keep you guessing and once you think you’ve solved the mystery, something will change and you will be back guessing again. I definitely enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the next books in the series!

I will be recommending this book! Definitely check it out, the first book in the series is free!!!!

The Perfect Stranger (Los Santos Cartel #2) – Available Now
Author: Melissa Jane
Genre: Romantic Suspense (Cartel)
A SAINT.
A protector from evil. One who without fear will lead you safely through darkness. 
LOS SANTOS. 
Cold and ruthless. A CARTEL who cares only for revenge and glory. 
My name is Nina Cross, and I’m the Los Santos’s newest prey. Determined to prove my partners innocence and avenge his violent death, I stumbled naively into the spider’s web. Tangled with lies and hunted for truth I was shadowed with each step I took. That was until one man, relentless in his touch and his desire threatened to bring me to my knees in ways I both craved and feared. 

 

Jair Ruiz. Powerful, brooding and confident and not at all who he seems. He has me in his sights and has every intention of toying with his newest target while fighting to keep us both alive. 
When the FBI turns it back on you and Los Santos cartel have already dug your grave, who is there left to trust?
Only one man. A saviour.
But if I look my saint in the eye and all I see is the devil…do I run?

“I Would Like to give this Book 5+ STARS for the Amazing Character execution and Brilliant Author Writing.” – Amazon Customer

“Never Trust A Saint is by far the BEST book I have read this year!” – Amazon Customer

The Devil is like a shadow.
It follows.
It waits.
Gabriel Nicholas Santos. Born with a name belonging to saints, yet evil to the core. When he smiled, people would die. When he lost control, hell would open up its fiery gates. He was nothing more than a malevolent puppet to his elusive uncle.
Together they were LOS SANTOS cartel, rulers of South America’s most feared and powerful drug empire. The price on their heads was high. The price of becoming one of them? Even higher.
Both were my targets who knew the game well. While one kept me close, the other became a myth. But I would wait. I would watch. I would become just like them in order to finish them both.
But it was never going to be that easy. Not now. Not with… her.
Gabriel had his sights fixed on FBI Agent Nina Cross. Strong. Beautiful. And none-the-wiser of those who shadowed her every move. She held the answers he had killed so many for. She was the one thing stopping LOS SANTOS from taking full control.
And I had one job. To both save and destroy Nina Cross. But that was only the beginning.
Only when you cover your enemies with dirt are they truly gone.

When a monster owns your past, can you control your destiny?


Only daughter of the volatile President of the Black Shamrocks MC and long-suffering sister to four overprotective brothers, Madelaine O’Brien has survived circumstances that would have broken a lesser woman.

Mikhail “Mad Dog” Kennedy is her salvation, her reward for continuing to fight, and the matching piece of her soul.

With her life happy and on track, will the reappearance of the monster from her past be the event that finally breaks her? Or will he be the catalyst she needs to put it all behind her, once and for all?

They say when life gives you lemons; make lemonade. What happens when life keeps sending you demons who refuse to stay buried? Do you lie down and accept defeat or rise to the seemingly unwinnable challenge, and start SEIZING CONTROL?

With the woman he loves—the woman he failed— fading away before his eyes, Mikhail Kennedy knows he needs to do something drastic to save her. To save himself. If she flinches away from his touch one more time, his guilt-ridden heart is going to shatter into a million pieces. 

Madelaine O’Brien knows she’s drowning. The after effects of what happened to her are slowly killing her will to live; yet, she can’t find the strength to stop it. Keeping everything a secret is the only option. Her internal battle to fight off her feelings of contamination and shame is hard enough without needing to explain to the Black Shamrocks MC what really happened with her crazy ex-boyfriend. 

When Mik comes home and tosses her motorcycle helmet into her hands, declaring that they’re going to ride for as long as it takes for Maddi to open up to him, she realizes this is make-or-break. The trip is either going to push their relationship past the point of no return or it’s going to be their chance to set about SOOTHING SUFFERING.

Black Shamrocks MC #3.5 Novella

 


Wendy Markham. Gentle. Compassionate. Loyal. Step-mother to five headstrong children, long-time partner of the cantankerous ex-President of the Black Shamrocks MC, and the woman everyone turns to in a crisis.

Patrick “Beast” O’Brien. Brutal. Merciless. Duplicitous. A father in name only, traitor to his own Club, and a man living on borrowed time.

He’s broken all of the rules, hurt the one’s closest to him, and then run away like a coward. She’s been left behind to clean up his mess. Pouring every ounce of energy into their abandoned children, the last thing Wendy needs is for her own health to fail.

Facing the battle of a lifetime and determined to protect everyone from the fallout, she forges ahead alone. In the meantime, Beast’s found that putting your ego above your family makes for a lonely life. When he discovers Wendy’s secret, will he learn the true value of what he threw away and find the capacity to commence CONQUERING CIRCUMSTANCES?
Revenge or the love of his life?
Her soul mate versus her family?
Whatever they chose, someone loses. 

Mik and Maddi. Mad Dog and his Angel. Mikhail Kennedy and Madelaine O’Brien. One without the other just doesn’t seem right. They’re made for each other; soul mates who’ve survived every obstacle thrown in their way.

It should be smooth sailing from now on. Mik taking his rightful place as the President of the Black Shamrocks MC with his woman by his side. Maddi free from the demons that plague her, finally back in the tender embrace of the love of her life.

Revenge. That dish best served cold. The need for it is eating Mik up inside. Filling him with hatred and blinding him to Maddi’s struggle. He wants to avenge every wrong done to them while she wishes to forgive and forget. 

A life filled with love and happiness ought to be their destiny. A future filled with pain and regret appears to be the actual outcome. With the love they’ve fought so hard to protect at stake, can they let go of the past and stop TEMPTING FATE?
DISCLAIMER: This book contains depictions of graphic situations and is not suitable for all readers.
It’s said that only in our darkest hour do we find light. That may be true for the lucky ones. When your light has been extinguished and pitch-black bleakness has taken hold, you could be excused for doubting that it will ever be reignited.

 


In the past when people mentioned Joel O’Brien, they talked about “the quiet one”. The boy who was the family’s voice of reason and their go-to guy for wisdom well beyond his years. Nowadays, they whisper about the “crippled one”. The man who radiates darkness, who wallows in his self-pity, and refuses to find a way to deal with the injuries he sustained at the beginning of the war that’s threatening to engulf the Black Shamrocks MC. 

Sascha Koswalski is the light of her family’s life. With a smile that could brighten the day of the most hard-hearted, the single mother’s innate exuberance lessens the pain of her physiotherapy clients. She’s yet to find a patient who doesn’t respond to her sunny nature and skilled hands. 

Until Joel. The stubborn, angry man might be the one patient she fails. Unable to crack his protective shell, Sascha is on the verge of giving up when Joel shows her another side of himself. Buoyed by the knowledge that there is a man filled with hope hiding underneath his cold veneer, can the physiotherapist rehabilitate more than his broken body? Will she be the light that reignites his belief in himself and sets them both on the path to FINDING NIRVANA?

“Tru Blue” ~Melissa Foster~ Pre-Order Tour!

Title: Tru Blue
Author: Melissa Foster
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 9, 2016
-Pre-Order Available Now-

Imagine falling in love with a man, then finding out he was a killer…TRU BLUE is a sexy, dark stand-alone novel written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice romance readers have come to love, and the deeply emotional literary prose women’s fiction readers have come to expect, from New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster. 

He wore the skin of a killer, and bore the heart of a lover…

There’s nothing Truman Gritt won’t do to protect his family–Including spending years in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. When he’s finally released, the life he knew is turned upside down by his mother’s overdose, and Truman steps in to raise the children she’s left behind. Truman’s hard, he’s secretive, and he’s trying to save a brother who’s even more broken than he is. He’s never needed help in his life, and when beautiful Gemma Wright tries to step in, he’s less than accepting. But Gemma has a way of slithering into people’s lives and eventually she pierces through his ironclad heart. When Truman’s dark past collides with his future, his loyalties will be tested, and he’ll be faced with his toughest decision yet.

“Several emotional topics — such as drug addiction, abandonment, infertility and unexpectedly becoming a parent — are easily woven together without making the story feel crowded or overdone. Foster writes exceptional characters that keep readers thinking long after the book is finished… The dynamic members of the Whiskey family are the foundation that holds the group together and they are exactly the reason we’re taught not to judge. Let’s hope we hear more from all of them!” -RT Book Reviews

TRUMAN GRITT LOCKED the door to Whiskey Automotive and stepped into the stormy September night. Sheets of rain blurred his vision, instantly drenching his jeans and T-shirt. A slow smile crept across his face as he tipped his chin up, soaking in the shower of freedom. He made his way around the dark building and climbed the wooden stairs to the deck outside his apartment. He could have used the interior door, but after being behind bars for six long years, Truman took advantage of the small pleasures he’d missed out on, like determining his own schedule, deciding when to eat and drink, and standing in the f**king rain if he wanted to. He leaned on the rough wooden railing, ignoring the splinters of wood piercing his tattooed forearms, squinted against the wetness, and scanned the cars in the junkyard they used for parts—and he used to rid himself of frustrations. He rested his leather boot on the metal box where he kept his painting supplies. Truman didn’t have much—his old extended-cab truck, which his friend Bear Whiskey had held on to for him while he was in prison, this apartment, and a solid job, both of which were compliments of the Whiskey family. The only family he had anymore.
Emotions he didn’t want to deal with burned in his gut, causing his chest to constrict. He turned to go inside, hoping to outrun thoughts of his own f**ked-up family, whom he’d tried—and failed—to save. His cell phone rang with his brother’s ringtone, “A Beautiful Lie” by 30 Seconds to Mars.
“F**k,” he muttered, debating letting the call go to voicemail, but six months of silence from his brother was a long time. Rain pelleted his back as he pressed his palm to the door to steady himself. The ringing stopped, and he blew out a breath he hadn’t realized he’d trapped inside. The phone rang again, and he froze.
He’d just freed himself from the dredges of hell that he’d been thrown into in an effort to save his brother. He didn’t need to get wrapped up in whatever mess the drug-addicted fool had gotten himself into. The call went to voicemail, and Truman eyed the metal box containing his painting supplies. Breathing like he’d been in a fight, he wished he could paint the frustration out of his head. When the phone rang for the third time in as many minutes, the third time since he was released from prison six months ago, he reluctantly answered.
“Quincy.” He hated the way his brother’s name came out sounding like the enemy. Quincy had been just a kid when Truman went to prison. Heavy breathing filled the airwaves. The hairs on Truman’s forearms and neck stood on end. He knew fear when he heard it. He could practically taste it as he ground his teeth together.
“I need you,” his brother’s tortured voice implored.
Need me? Truman had hunted down his brother after he was released from prison, and when he’d finally found him, Quincy was so high on crack he was nearly incoherent—but it didn’t take much for f**k off to come through loud and clear. What Quincy needed was rehab, but Truman knew from his tone that wasn’t the point of the call.
Before he could respond, his brother croaked out, “It’s Mom. She’s really bad.”

“A Better Way to Pray” ~Andrew Wommack~ Review

betterwaytopray

Synopsis:

Andrew Wommack uncovers the traditions and misconceptions in prayer that often bring more suffering than good! In finding out how Jesus taught us to pray, we can bring joy back into our relationship with God.

Many people, who truly love God with all of their heart, find it difficult to pray as they have been taught. And their once-vibrant relationship with the Lord has become stifled, mechanical, and lifeless. What they don’t understand is that prayer is an opportunity to have communion with God – fellowship with the Father. Of course it includes requests because we need help from our Father every day, but it also includes a connection and friendship with God. Readers may find it amazing that God would talk with them just as a friend, but His greatest desire is for His children to know Him in much the same, intimate way as He knows them.

After 30 years of ministry, Andrew Wommack has discovered some important things about prayer including what prayer is and what it is not. Uncover the traditions and misconceptions in prayer and discover true and meaningful communion with God through Jesus’ example of prayer. More importantly, you’ll come to know a new, profound joy and fulfillment in your relationship with God, receiving the answers you need.

Review:

A great book! Prayer.. We all have questions. Are we praying the correct way, are we using our quiet time with God appropriately, are we asking for “favors” instead of being thankful.

There are so many ways to pray and sometimes we don’t know if we are doing it right. This book points out many misconceptions about prayers and is a riveting tutorial on how to pray the right way. To connect with God on a deeper more meaningful level and to understand that sometimes we don’t need a long prayer session as long as we are praying to God with honesty and truth.

“What would be left of most Christians’ prayer lives if all the repenting for sin, asking for things, and intercession were subtracted? 16 Prayer becomes religious when you try to use it for something God never intended. How Long Do You Pray? Hardly anything! Most people’s prayers consist of, “Oh God, I’m so sorry because I’ve failed again. Help me overcome this problem. God, heal this and provide that.” And if they’re really spiritual: “Do this and that for these other people!” That’s about what it amounts to.”

I love this quote from the book…because seriously how many times have we prayed just to repent of our sins. For me, numerous times, without even thinking about it. This book really helped me to remember the reason I pray to God, to be thankful for everything he has given me and to protect my family. This author really connects with those readers that are parents. Sometimes we just can’t devote time to prayer like we should, but that’s OK. We find our ways to make it work around the crazy of raising young kids. The following quote hit home for me, being a parent to 3 kids under the age of 7 is rough sometimes!

“You simply cannot live life in the real world the way many people teach prayer! They talk about waking up two or three hours before anyone else in order to pray. Then they pump you up and send you out full of inspiring stories. If you can do it—great! But if you have kids that keep you up until ten, awaken you two or three times during the night, and then have to rush off to work by 5 a.m., you won’t be able to get up that early to pray; and God doesn’t want you to either! “It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late…for so he giveth his beloved sleep” (Ps. 127:2).”

Overall, a great book that has a very powerful message. I would definitely recommend it! I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review!

Add to Goodreads
My whole life I’ve wanted nothing more than to fit in.
Only, my whole life I’ve done anything but.
That’s probably because I’m anything but average. After all—female serial killers seem to be a minority in today’s society.
And that’s ok—because I’ve longed for a change for quite some time now.
Which brings me back around to fitting in.
You know what one has to do to fit in?
I do.
One has to blend.
Which is great news!
Because I realize my clock is ticking, so to speak, and now I want a family. Luckily, I’ve always been good at getting what I want.
So I figure what better place to blend than suburbia?
All that stuff I did before—it’s water under the bridge now. I just hope it’s not too late to change my ways. Here’s to hoping for suburbia’s sake, too.
I mean, what are the odds I could be the girl next door?
Apparently, they’re better than you might think.
==============================
Your whole life you’ve wanted to fit in.
Only your whole life you’ve done anything but.
That’s probably because you’re anything but average— you’re a killer— but, then so am I.
You say you’ve longed for a change for quite some time now.
This is good because, well, me too.
Your clock is ticking, you want a family, but you waste so much time.
I know because I’m watching, waiting, blending.
What you don’t realize is if you want me, and I think you do, then you’ll have to change your ways because sometimes hunters become hunted.
But what are the odds of that happening in suburbia?
Apparently, they’re better than you might think.
 
    
You told me by candlelight last night that your real name is not Ryan as it said on the dating site, as you said at dinner. It’s Jude. I wasn’t surprised. We all become someone different online. As you ran the tips of your fingers across my cheek, you promised you were sorry for lying, and then you showed me when you touched my scars with your lips. You asked for the truth about them, but I didn’t give it to you. You don’t get to be the only one who lies. Which is why I haven’t told you exactly who or what I am.
It isn’t time for whole truths about anything.
Speaking of names, it took a lot to pry Amy’s last name from your lips, and you see… you do still keep her close to your heart. You’re protecting her. This is how I know. It’s dangerous, Jude. She is dangerous, and you need closure, you really do. It’s too much to go around carrying the weight of her, believe me, I know. Morris was the answer you gave when you finally relented—but you lied. Your jaw did this twitchy thing, and that’s how I knew. We all have our tells, and apparently, that’s yours.
“No doubt, she’s married now,” you add, to cover your tracks, to conceal your lies, and you are still in denial, still protecting her, and it’s okay because, luckily, I know how to hunt people.
Later, I withdrew in your lies, and you sensed me pull away.
I started slowly at first, retreating into myself and then I left and didn’t speak to you for four days. You let me have my space, at first. I’ll give you that. But the thing you need to know about women is that it isn’t space we want, not really. We want a fight. We want a man willing to burn for us—someone willing to put it all on the line. We want to go to war.
I know you have it in you, I do. This is why I don’t return your calls. This is why I play hard to get when the truth is I miss you. I miss the way your arms feel around me, the way your eyes bore holes into my soul—all the ways you seem to know me even though you don’t. So on the fourth day, when you show up at my door, this is why I practically leap into your arms. You aren’t confused like most men would be. Not you. You come bearing gifts that aren’t flowers. You come bearing breakfast and plane tickets, and you are a warrior, Jude, you are.
