• His Uptown Guy by Felice Stevens

    This book hit a special place in my heart.  My husband was a Police Officer who worked “The Pile” after 9/11 happened.  He stayed down there for months trying to help families find their loves ones.  PTSD was felt by the whole city, those who survived, those that lost and many others. 

    For Jesse, hi PTSD left him homebound.  I can’t imagine the pain and anxiety he suffered.  It takes the tender touch and love of a good man like Dash to help Jesse heal.  This is a heartfelt story of over coming tragedy through love.

    When Jesse Grace-Martin loses his father on 9/11, his charmed life is gone forever. People look menacing, and the streets no longer seem safe. After experiencing a brutal mugging, Jesse retreats to his apartment in the landmark Dakota building. Five years later, his first attempt to walk outside those famous gates again is a disaster—except for meeting the gorgeous maintenance worker who helps him through his crushing panic attack. Jesse can’t stop thinking about the guy but hesitates to reach out, knowing he has little to offer.

    Dashamir Sadiko has big dreams. Money in the bank tops his list, and his peek into the life of the uber-wealthy at his job at the Dakota is all the incentive he needs. Struggling to work full-time and go to college, Dash desperately wants to break the cycle of poverty his parents had hoped to leave behind in Albania. When the two men become friends, Dash isn’t sure what to expect but can’t help his growing attraction to sweet and sexy Jesse. It’s nice to see how the other side lives, but his affections can’t be bought; Dash wants to be his own man.

    Defying the Dakota’s co-op rules, the two share lunches, their hopes and dreams, and ultimately their hearts. Jesse slowly regains his courage, but he’s worried he’ll never be the person he once was and that he’s not good enough for Dash. And Dash isn’t convinced the son of poor immigrants’ has a place at the table with a blue-blood, trust-fund man. Jesse needs to realize that money can’t buy happiness and love, while Dash must learn to trust that what they have is real, that he’s more than Jesse’s walk on the wild side with an uptown guy.–

    Years ago, they were in love. She was an up-and-coming superstar and he was the devilishly handsome security professional hired to keep her safe. They fell hard and fast, no matter how they tried to resist one another. But not everyone around them was happy about their relationship, and a string of lies and deceit destroyed what they once had.

    Having just taken the helm of a nationally renowned protective services company, Kynan McGrath is looking to rebrand and revamp his career. The newly crowned Jameson Force Security is moving from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the mountainous steel town of Pittsburgh, and the last thing Kynan has time for is to deal with his past.

    More than a decade has passed since their split, but even a bruised and battered heart remembers its first love. So when Joslyn Meyers comes to him for help, Kynan reluctantly agrees to keep her safe from a terrifying stalker who keeps threatening her life.

    As the danger they face continues to intensify, Kynan realizes he’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman who turned her back on him all those years ago. Because one thing is certain — no matter how hard he tries to convince himself otherwise, Joslyn still has his heart.

    Grigore “Wolf” Lupei left his past behind and for good reason. Staying with Caitlyn Summers would have held her back, would have stifled her dreams and her beautiful voice that deserved to be shared on a world stage.

Wolf can’t let her know the truth. He’s not the man she used to love–no longer a man at all, but a creature of the darkness. A lethal vampire and member of the Sons of Sangue MC. But when he learns someone has threatened Caitlyn’s life, nothing will stop him from keeping her safe.

    Caitlyn Summers is at the height of her career, performing sold-out shows all over the world. When a death threat comes, she refuses to cancel her tour, reluctantly agreeing to a hire a bodyguard. She never dreamed the one man who broke her heart would come walking back into her life to protect her. She’s never gotten over Wolf, but putting her life in his hands is the last thing Caitlyn wants–especially when she realizes what he’s become. But there’s no denying her desire for the dangerous man, and as the spotlight thrusts her into a killer’s reach, Wolf will have to prove that Caitlyn can not only trust him with her life, but with her heart as well.

     

     

     

     


  • 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.
