  • Who We Were by Melissa Collins

    No matter how much you love someone, no matter how much you want to help them, fix them; until they love themselves, can help/fix themselves, they will not be ready to love and be loved by anyone else. Ryan and Quinn had to go through many trying years before they learned this lesson. They loved each other. That was never in doubt. The timing for them to be, that is what was so soul crushing.

    This book was a roller coaster of emotions I didn’t want to come off of. 

     

    Who We Were…

    Two awkward teenagers – the loner and the nerd, trying to find our place in the world. Paired in wood shop, we knew nothing of each other, except that we wanted to know everything. Then one life altering moment changed it all and we were left with shattered dreams and broken hearts.

    Who We Are…

    Two grown men – braver and smarter than we used to be, trying to heal the damage from that irrevocable moment. Even though the past was behind us, dead and buried long ago, we found it impossible to move on without ripping open the scars of our deep wounds.

    With twelve years of unanswered questions fueling our desperate need for the truth, we must figure out if who we were will destroy who we are.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

    Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.

    Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

  • Just One Kiss by C. A. Harms

    Just One Kiss Banner 1500x760
    Cher is always right, it’s in his kiss.  One weak moment in the woods was all it took for Palmer to fall.  For Corbin, he fell a long time ago.  I love these crazy fraternity brothers and their crazier pranks.  They are brutal!  They play hard and love harder!  Corbin had me choking up, but Palmer was just what he needed.  I love when these guys adopts little ones into their lives.
     

    Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00006]What do you get when you mix Tequila with a house full of rowdy Fraternity brothers who have no boundaries? A cucumber, a pink thong, and a bottle of lube. Oh yeah, and super glue. There is always super glue…

    Parties, drinking, and plenty of mornings where you can’t remember what you did the night before…that was my life.

    Yet, there was one memory that lingered in my mind. Ten minutes in the woods with Palmer that got too intense to ignore.

    But ten minutes with her wasn’t enough. It would never be enough.

    She’s a force, one that swept in unexpectedly, knocked me on my ass and left me with an intense craving. Palmer tried to fight it with every fiber in her being, but I could see the desire in her eyes. That curiosity that lived inside of her, wondering what it would be like if she just gave in…again.

    I had to convince her that our time together wasn’t a mistake. That she wants me as much as I want her. We share a connection, a bond, that has changed me in ways I never expected. She saved me. And to think…

    It all started with Just One Kiss.

  • Havoc by Kindle Alexander

     

    A CLIFFHANGER!  REALLY! AHHHHHHHH!  You mean I have to wait until next year to find out if Key and Alec and make it work?  What I really can’t wait to see is for Alec’s date to get a beat down. Please say I get that in the next book!  Pleeeeessse!!!

    A book that will cause Havoc in your life because nothing will get down until you are done with reading it!

    Keyes Dixon’s life is challenging enough as a full patch member of the Disciples of Havoc Motorcycle Club but being a gay biker leaves him traveling down one tough road. With an abusive past and his vow to the club cementing his future, he doesn’t believe in love and steers clear of commitment. But a midnight ride leads to a chance meeting with a sexy pretty-boy in a wicked hot sports car that has him going down quicker than a Harley on ice. 
    Cocky Assistant District Attorney Alec Pierce lives in the shadow of his politically connected family. A life of privilege doesn’t equal a life of love, a fact made obvious at every family gathering. Driven yet lonely, Alec yields to his family’s demands for his career path, hoping for the acceptance he craves. Until he meets a gorgeous biker who tips the scales in the favor of truth…and he can no longer live a lie.
    Can two men from completely different worlds…and sides of the law…find common ground, or will all their desires only wreak Havoc?
    Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!
     
    I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
    Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.
     
    I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
     
    That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
     
    Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
     
    Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.
