Gabe tried to warn me, but I didn’t understand the depths of Sean’s corruption until he let them take me away. After everything we’ve been through, I’m crushed, but I refuse to accept this fate. Screw that, I’m not dying tonight.

I am late posting this review on here. I did post my reviews on Goodreads (as soon as I was finished with the last page!) and then B&N and Amazon when the links were Available.

Plot: 3.5  Characters: 5  Overall: 4

With a sad heart….. Let me start off by stating I had to fight my inner demons on giving this “installment” a full on 4 stars. This is the first book in the entire series I felt this way over. Since I am a faithful Sean and Avery follower and LOVE this series.

Let me get my inner demon problems out of the way first:
1.It felt shorter then the other books. While technically I went back and checked into this and it seems to be average with the other books in this series, I just couldn’t get past the tug of it’s “where the hell is the rest of my book” type feeling.So since I honestly know it’s the same “averaged” length I can’t hold it for a bad rating. It’s just my personal opinion.
2. I felt like we pretty much started in the same place we ended.

Now on to the good stuff:
I still enjoyed the book and finished it at one setting since I didn’t want to put it down. I think that majorly lied upon hoping to find out everything that is going on and who the shooter is from the last few books.

I felt like this book was packed with more action then some of the other books. It still had the equal amount of emotional roller coaster as we have all came to expect in the Sean and Avery world. And of course the drama is still there.

In these installment we start off with the Avery in “box” scenario that we were left with in AR13. And Sean and Black trying to make terms in the dorm room.

Avery is given some useful advise from Gabe. Will she listen? She is kind of confused with what he tells her, so she needs to peice it together better for her to fully understand what he means by this information. Since Gabe hasn’t steared her wrong in the past she knows he is telling the truth.

From there we have the normal Sean and Avery drama, mixed in with an oh so sexy Trystan Scott! We find out the Mel is still holed up in the bar with Trystan (her dreamer boy!)After talking to Mel, Avery is trying to piece together things about the murder that occured a couple installments ago. I can’t go into detail here as I don’t want to reveal to much of what she learns from Black. This part is very interesting though. I will leave it at that.

Both Black and Sean give Avery an offer. She is having problems trying to decide what to do. The book centers around these questions. She enlists the help of Mel and Marty but both have different outlooks and opinions. She needs to do some searching from within to give her the answer she is needing. (This installment we don’t learn her answer)

Sean, Black and Gabe all seem to be working together in some form to figure out who this mystery shooter/killer is. Every plan they have seems to fall through and something happens, or Avery doesn’t cooperate. (I am starting to get sick of Averys you can’t tell me what to do attitude! You would think she would be more thankful to people who are trying to keep her safe and figure out who is doing this. But is she? Nope)

So after my inner demons I loved this book. I just wish their were a faster story line like at the start of the series. I feel like it’s starting to lose some of it’s momentum. Which in turn makes me VERY sad. I say this because I feel like people might think they are wasting money when they aren’t really learning much.

With that being said, if the momentum and story line picked up I could see this series making it several more books.

I leave you with this shocker: By the end of the book there will be TWO dead bodies. Who are they? Read it to get your answer to that and what TWO offers Avery faces.

(This entire series is one of my favorite reads, so don’t let my 4 stars scare you away. Every book before this I would highly suggest 5+ stars. This one single book just didn’t give me the umph I wanted. But that didn’t get me down, I will continue to ride this series out, as I love Avery, Sean, Mel, Black, Gabe etc. The characters do it for me!)

(My Way Series #2)
by: HJ Bellus
blurb
Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin.

Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.
My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp…
Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp was sexy as hell, a charismatic beast, and soon became one of my best friends. We shared a love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck.
The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths? Or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

Excerpt

We get up at the same time and she follows me outside the door. The door comes out on the side of the house so we walk back to the pool. “It must be nice to have these views every day,” I say standing at the edge of the pool.

“It is,” she replies. “I love it here. I’m going to miss this place. I’m going to try to come back after senior year for college.” She stops behind me. My tattoo must be slightly showing from the sides of my shirt because she starts tracing the outline. The light caressing of her finger sends chills down my arms. “Usually people our age doesn’t have tattoos, what does it mean?”

I usually don’t talk about my tattoo because it’s mine and mine alone. Something I don’t want shared with the world. I’ve never told anyone what it means; not even Ryland. That’s the reason it’s in Latin. She whispers, “Infragilis.”

For some reason though, I want to tell her. “Unbreakable. It’s Latin.” I expect her to ask me a lot of questions; to quiz me on the meaning, but she surprises me when I hear nothing at all, just a sigh of contentment.

She runs her finger down my back. She clasps her small hands around my waist. The feel of her so close makes me close my eyes. I begin to turn around when she pushes me off the side, causing me to fall into the pool.

I come up for air, completely soaked, to her bent over laughing. “What was that for?” I’m trying hard to sound mad, but her laughter is contagious and before I know it I’m laughing along with her.

She stands upright, placing her hands on her hips. “That’s for earlier.” She winks. “I don’t get mad; I get even.”

I come to the edge, placing my palms flat on the cement, pulling myself up. She doesn’t realize she just made this a game. I can do this all night. It’s in my competitive nature. I’m trailing water as I stalk towards her. She is still laughing a little until she looks me in the eyes. Her eyes widen as she realizes what I’m doing and takes off running.

I chase after her around the yard. She’s pretty quick to be so short and dainty, but no match for me. I play baseball and football back home and I’m one of the fastest guys on the team. I’m not even breaking a sweat and I’m on her heels. I’m giving her a few minutes lead just to toy with her, allowing her to think she’s won. Right before she gets to the gate, I increase my stride and wrap my arm around her waist causing her to scream out. When she realized it was a little loud, she slaps her hand over her mouth trying not to cause a commotion with Ryland’s parents.

I pull her backward towards me and scoop her into my arms, cradling her. She places her arms around my neck for stability, but begins kicking her legs trying to break free from my grasp. “There’s not a chance I’m letting you get away now, sweetheart. I always love a good challenge.”

She looks at the pool getting closer with each step and turns back to me. “You wouldn’t dare.” She narrows her eyes. “Breyson, no!”

“Oh but I would,” I say and take off running towards the pool. I jump off the deep end of the pool with her in my arms. Breaking through the water, I release her so we can come back up for air.

She breaks the surface, brushing her hair back out of her face laughing. “The water is freezing. I can’t believe you did that!” She splashes water at me. “I didn’t bring any extra clothes.”

Her thin satin top is clinging to her body, revealing the outline of her bra and cleavage. For the top to be so conservative, reaching all the way to her neck in which it connects with the back fabric; this is by far the sexiest view I’ve ever had. There is something to be said about a woman that leaves a little to the imagination. When it’s all out there for the world to see, for some reason it’s less appealing.

“I wouldn’t worry about clothes. I’m sure we can find you something. She is wading in the middle of the pool and I am closer to the farther side. I begin making my way towards her, my eyes never leaving hers. She has the slightest smile on her face. When she sees me coming towards her, she begins swimming backwards slowly. “You trying to run from me?” I begin grinning because she is getting closer to the side, leaving less room for her to go.

“You trying to catch me?” She counters sarcastically. You gotta love a girl with a little spunk. Her back finally reaches the corner of the pool, not far from the diving board. She turns around noticing that she is now trapped and I have her right where I want her. She bites the corner of her lip.

I stop right before her, grabbing the edge of the pool in hand on each side of her. “Maybe I am. I know a good catch when I see one.” Her eyes are slightly hooded like earlier, giving me the answer to the question in my head. She is giving me the consent that she feels the way I feel right now. I close the distance between us. The warmth of our bodies mingling around us. The water isn’t so cold anymore. I wrap one of her legs at a time around me to support her against the wall. I remain holding one edge of the pool and place the other on her neck.

I lean in closer, our lips just a breath apart. “Stop running Kinzleigh.” Her eyes close as she releases a sigh. I can’t stop myself anymore. I don’t want to. I don’t care if I have to go back home in a few days. I would rather have a few days I’ll never forget than spend the rest of my life in regret. I softly kiss her lips before sucking the droplets of water from them slowly, savoring her taste. They are so full and soft. She slowly relaxes, letting me suck and pull at her bottom lip. I can feel her inexperience as she allows me to lead her lips where I want them. I slightly lick her lip requesting entry in which she grants. As I slide my tongue inside I seek out hers; it’s warm and moist entangling with mine.

I run my hand from her neck down the seam of her body, stopping at her waist, just before testing the waters and cupping her bottom. It feels as good as I envisioned it would feel and it’s covered in denim. I can’t imagine how it would feel bare. I continue to kiss and suck her lip, guiding her tongue in the perfect rhythm with mine. As she slides her tongue inside my mouth, I clench it in my lips and lightly suck it and release. The lowest moan escapes her perfect lips.

My hormones are raging. I can’t help it. Holding her by the butt, I pull her closer at the waist. My erection is pressing between her legs. Even in this pool of cool water, I can feel the heat radiating from inside the opening at her thighs. A growl comes from within my chest, causing her to slightly bite my bottom lip. Oh damn, for the first time in my entire life I feel like I could release my seed right here and she hasn’t even touched me. She brings her arms up around my neck interlocking her fingers at the back.

I lightly rub my erection over the jeans pressed against her, between her legs. She rolls her head to the side giving me access to her neck. I kiss just below the lobe of her ear and run my tongue lightly down her neck, stopping at the top of her exposed shoulder.

She begins to get a little bold and sways her hips from side to side. “If you keep doing that, I’m going to lose my control and I won’t be able to stop.”

She lifts her head and looks at me, smiling mischievously and kisses the area on the front of my neck between my collar bone. She lightly trails kisses higher up my neck. “Kinzleigh, you’re playing with fire,” I warn. She clamps her legs tighter behind my back and clenches the muscles between her legs that is pressed against me.

I can’t take it anymore. Without thinking, my hand goes for the button of her pants as I take her lips, more roughly this time. I finally pull away to look her in the eyes. I rest my forehead against hers. “I’ll have to go inside and get a condom from my wallet if you want to go any further.” I look in her eyes and her breathing is quickening. She looks like she is thinking about it, which only tells me one thing.         

“Kinzleigh, you have had sex before right?” I really thought Ryland was blowing smoke up my ass when he was talking about her being inexperienced with guys, but I really didn’t think he meant literally none. I will not be the one to take her virginity. That is a connection and attachment I stay away from. Plus, she doesn’t deserve that. Her first time should be with someone who has a warm beating heart; mine turned to ice a long time ago.

She isn’t looking at me. As a matter of fact she is staring at the water. She releases my neck. “No, I haven’t okay. Does it really matter whether I have or not. Since when do guys care about that sort of thing? It’s just sex right. Maybe it’s time I stop trying to be so perfect. Look at where it’s getting me. Nothing is going the way I planned. A few weeks from now my life will be over as I know it. Maybe I should just live for myself and have fun like everyone else. It’s kind of perfect really, if you think about it. You can help me get it out of the way and then we won’t ever see each other again once you leave. No lies, no expectations, just fun.”

Dammit! Why on earth does she have to be a virgin? I run my fingers through my wet hair. I want her; so bad I can’t stand it. I’ve never turned down a girl that looks even half as beautiful as her and I’ll probably hate myself for this. She may not want any attachments, but I can’t do it to her. She deserves better. I want to claim her as my own; mark her mine, but at what costs? “Let’s go inside and change clothes and we’ll continue this there.” I kiss her softly and lift her to sit on the side of the pool. I lift myself out of the pool and standing up, I reach for her hand. “Come on beautiful.”

Synopsis

Ace is bad.

Very bad.

After losing my brother, I know I should stay away. So why can’t I?

He’s irresistible. He’s confident. He’s amazing… but he’s dangerous.

He was there the night my brother was killed. He watched it all go down.

I should stay away. The things I saw weren’t acceptable. They’re not even legal.

I should want Ace as far away from me as possible—I should consider him a monster and a threat to my life—but something keeps drawing me back. Something keeps bringing me to him. Something is making me… weak for him.

He’s warned me many times to stay away. He’s even threatened me. But I know, just as much as he does, that I won’t stay away.
I won’t until I get answers.

But there’s one thing wrong with getting too many answers. It leads to lies. It leads to trouble. It leads to danger. But worst of all, it leads to me falling deeply and madly in love with him.

I’ve gotta be out of my mind.

Excerpt

Footsteps start up the complex stairs. They’re heavy. Slow. I try to control my breathing but it’s hard. The room that was once my sanctuary – my get away—now feels like a trap. A prison. I can hardly breathe.

Sealing my eyes, I listen as his footsteps get closer to my door until finally he stops. It’s quiet for a moment. I think he’s got his ear to the door, wondering what I’m doing.

Then he bangs on the door and I gasp. I don’t get up, though. He can’t get in. The door is locked and the chain is on. I don’t think he’d be dumb enough to kick the door in, knowing I have neighbors. Good thing they’re nosey. They’ll come looking for the noise immediately.

“London, I know you’re in there! Car’s in the parking lot.” His voice is no longer calm and casual. It’s angry and demanding. “Open the door.”

I don’t say anything, but I do stand and hold the knife in front of me just in case. I slowly walk out of my bedroom and towards the living room.

“Open it or I’ll kick it down. I don’t give a fuck who sees me.”

I gulp and gasp at the same time, which causes me to burp. And it’s pretty loud. Loud enough for Ace to hear.

Instantly, the door swings open and hits the wall with a loud thud. I scream as I fall on my side. When I look up, Ace is standing between the frames of his door, adjusting his tie. All I can make out is his shadow, but I can feel his eyes hard on me.

Stepping inside, he shuts the door behind him coolly. I scramble away with the knife in my hand. When I get to my feet, I dash for my bedroom and grab the telephone. He chases after me, warning me not to do anything stupid.

I dial 9, but I’m not given the chance to finish. He snatches the phone out of my hand and slams it down. I spin around, bringing the butcher knife in front of me again.

Ace takes a quick step back, glaring down at the knife. Then, a slow smirk forms on his lips. The lips I hated I admired once.

“I’ll cut you,” I threaten.

“You won’t,” he says boldly.

“I won’t?” I hiss, bringing the edge of the knife to his neck. “Don’t test me. I will.”

He raises his hands in the air, shaking his head. “When’s the last time you sharpened this bad boy, huh? Three years ago? It’s as dull as fucking a nun in bed.”

“I don’t give a shit! I can still cut you with it! Just… sit down!” I demand, circling him, knife still clutched in my hands and at his neck. “On the bed.”

He frowns. “No.”

“I don’t wanna hurt you, but if I have to I will!” I shout, voice wavering.

“That’s the thing… you won’t.” His tone is even.

I keep my tears back and my emotions behind me for now. I don’t want him to think I’m weak. I don’t want him to get away either. But deep inside I know I won’t hurt him. I won’t cut him. I’m too afraid to shed blood after seeing so much already.

With a bored sigh, Ace snatches the knife out of my hand and tosses it out of my bedroom. It skids across the hard wood floors, causing a clanking noise that makes my ears ring. I gasp, and start to run after it, but he grabs my arm tight and shoves me against the nearest wall. It’s not a hard shove. Nor does it hurt. But I’m still afraid.

As I tremble, he brings one of his large hands up and locks my face between his fingers. His eyes stare deeply into mine, his nostrils flared. From the slit of light filtering in through my window, he looks pissed. I know he’s going to kill me. I’m a witness.

“Listen to me,” he grumbles. His warm breath spills down my chest, across my cleavage. “I told you I’m not going to hurt you.”

“Why wouldn’t you?” I spit.

“I won’t. I’m not the one that killed Jonah. They did.”

Hearing Jonah’s name causes fiery tears to build in my eyes. “It’s your fault. I know it. Why wouldn’t they kill you, too? What were you doing there anyway? Why was Jonah there? Why did they kill him?” All of this is spilling out of me. I’m outraged. I’m pissed that Ace is still alive and my brother isn’t. I’m terrified. I’m… I’m a mess.

“Listen to me!” he demands, releasing my face to lock his hands on my shoulders. “I don’t know why they killed Jonah, all right? I don’t know why they didn’t kill me. But you have to understand… it’s what we do. It’s what Jonah signed up for. It’s business, and we can’t help when shit gets bloody.”

I process his words, give them some thought. “So… you’re the one that got him into that shit? What is it? What’d you promise him? I know Jonah, and I know he wouldn’t do something this bad without something in exchange.”

“I didn’t promise him shit.” Ace runs one hand through his slick hair. “He knew what he was in for. He was money-hungry, just like everyone else. He saw a way to achieve it and he went for it. It was a mistake… him coming to Atlanta.”

“How is that a mistake?” I demand. “I invited him. I graduated!”

Ace tilts his chin to meet my eyes. His are dark, and if I’m not mistaken, watery. I’m not given the chance to figure it out completely because he blinks and just like that, he’s angry again. “Don’t go to the cops. It’ll only get you killed.”

And with that, he releases me and walks out of my bedroom. I follow after him, grabbing his arm before he can get out the front door. “Killed by who? You?” I’m keeping my voice steady, but deep inside I’m scared out of my fucking mind.

Having been raised in foster care from the age of six after the death of her parents, Andi became emancipated at 16 after an especially horrible incident forced her into a psychiatric hospital.

The wedge between him and his family over his past relationship issues and career choices is not easily overcome. Luke must learn to face the past mistakes, fears and demons that constantly plague him.

Fireworks and passions quickly ignite between Andi and Luke in the midst of the chaos that surrounds and threatens them. She never revealed the secrets and lies that have plagued her, but when she publicly inherits her family fortune, the living, breathing past comes back to torment her and threaten all that she holds dear.

Courting Darkness

Courting Darkness – Week Blitz
By Melynda Price
Paranormal Romance
Date Published: 1/23/14
She’s captured the hearts of Heaven and Hell…
Betrayed by her true love, Olivia cannot let go of the angel her mind doesn’t remember, but her heart refuses to forget. In an attempt to reclaim her broken life, she is determined to unearth her past, but some secrets are better left buried.
To save her life, he sacrificed everything. Universal Law was broken when Liam violated Olivia’s free will. His guardianship has been revoked, and the pain of letting her go is nothing compared to the torture of enduring their shattered bond. He can no longer sense her, no longer feel her, and the enemy he risked it all to save her from, now has free reign to claim her for his own. To get her back, Liam must turn away from all he is, all he was, for the one thing he may have already lost forever—Olivia’s love.
Haden will stop at nothing to possess Immanuel’s Stone, and locked away in Olivia’s memories is the key he needs to find it. But in his quest for vengeance, he never expected to lose his heart to the enchanting green-eyed beauty. Forced to choose between love and revenge, Haden is captivated by a woman who will never be his…or will she?
EXCERPT
Before Olivia’s feet could touch the pavement, Haden’s hand was on her arm–his grip firm and unrelenting. It was difficult to imagine his touch being otherwise, yet only a score of minutes ago, he’d held her with a gentleness she’d thought him incapable of.
Looking at him now, wearing that standard-issue scowl, the impassive arrogant glint in those sea green eyes, she’d swear this wasn’t the same man. And therein lay the problem… She thought of him as such when the truth was, Haden wasn’t a man at all. Sure, he shared some of the same Homo sapien genetics, but he was so much more. And the minute she let her guard down and forgot that, was the moment she’d surely die.

Grinding his arousal against her backside, he growled, “I should take you right now for that little stunt. Haul that cush ass of yours into the back seat and finish this!”
It was a threat Olivia knew he could easily carry out. At her shameful, breath-hitching sob, Haden hissed a curse. His biting grip on her neck eased a touch. “Do you think that I want to want you, Olivia?”
She hoped his question was rhetorical because she couldn’t speak past the lump in her throat.
“Do you think this is some game you can outplay, outwit and outlast me? It’s not Survivor! I am ancient, Olivia, old as fucking Noah and his Ark. I’ve spent lifetimes hunting and killing the Sighted. Do not tempt me again, or I swear to God I’ll finish what you started.”

Knowing this was a Novella I knew to expect this as a fast read. This was a fun short story about Vanessa a 5th grade school teacher who is currently in the process of divorcing a major douche who did nothing but leave her hurt by the emotional pain he left her with, and Jackson a star studded basketball player who just moved into town.
I found the story lines to be very basic. Without going in to much details. The characters were written better then the actual story. Meaning you could actually visualize them in your mind, you could think about how they might look or act. While both main characters were a “perfect” fit and had lots in common I found this annoying over time. Over most of the story was predictable along the way. But since it was a fast read I still enjoyed it. I would like to know more about Jackson and Vanessa in a follow up book.
I think their story would of been better to tell as a novel.
