Cover Reveal: True Love Way by Mary Elizabeth

Monday, October 27, 2014





Some days are brighter than others, but Penelope Finnel has learned she can be invisible behind the colored lenses of her heart-shaped sunglasses.

Her mind is her own worst enemy, and simply waking up in the morning is risky. For a girl like her, staying in bed is easier. Especially when the day comes to start school in a new town with new kids who don’t understand that the clouds are not the only reason everything is so gloomy.

Dillon Decker is a typical boy from a typical small town who radiates light and happiness. Under the hovering glare of her father, Dillon leads Penelope around on his bicycle’s handlebars, hoping he will be the cure to her madness.

But as time goes by and when friend turns to lover, and lover turns to caretaker, how much can either of them endure before they’re swallowed whole?

This is a story about rollerblades and moving trucks, trading candy for smiles, and passing notes across lawns.

First love and the struggle to keep it sane.

The true love way.







Then the screen door opens and slams shut again, and standing beside the light Nazi is Penelope. Her hair is up now, and from what I can tell she’s not chewing gum anymore. Her knees are dirty, and her shoes are untied. The Discman isn’t on her hip, but her green sunglasses are still on her face, even though it’s nighttime.
Suddenly Mr. Finnel’s voice scares me out of my own head. “What are you looking at, boy?”
Definitely over six feet tall, the daughter Nazi isn’t leaning against the porch post anymore. He’s standing in front of his daughter, blocking my view of her.
I straighten my spine and speak too loudly, too quickly. “Nothing!”
He laughs at me again, but his eyebrows are more serious than ever. From behind her father’s arm, Penelope peeks out. I can’t see her eyes through her glasses, but I know she’s looking at me. I can’t stop looking at her.
Mr. Finnel’s laughter stops. “See something you like, boy? Do you think I’m cute?”
“Wha … what … no,” I stutter. My heart stops. He hates me.
Finally, she speaks, soft-spoken and small. “Don’t embarrass me, Dad. You’re so embarrassing.”
The heart Nazi puts his arm over his daughter’s shoulders and leads her down the steps to the walkway leading to the Chrysler.
“The boy next door is weird, Pen. Don’t talk to him,” he warns her with amusement in his voice. “He offered me bolts.”

Synopsis
When Avery Hensley met Conner Wellings, she thought she’d found the guy she was going to spend the rest of her life with. She got married young and had the most beautiful son in the world. Life seemed perfect. But not everything is what it seems. Turned out Conner had another side to him, a darker side that Avery didn’t see coming. He wrecked and broke her into a thousand pieces, leaving Avery to put herself back together. From then on, Avery vows never to let a man into her life again. But then she meets Tristan Morganson. He’s sweet and sexy and wrecks Avery in a different way than Conner did, the kind of way that makes her feel alive again, the kind of way that makes her think maybe not all guys are bad. But can Avery trust him enough to let her walls come crumbling down?



Excerpt
  add-to-goodreads-button 

(Can be read as a standalone)

As if I’ve lost my mind, I wet my lips with my tongue, a move I haven’t done in years. A slow smile curves at his lips.

“You did that on purpose,” he murmurs while eyeing my mouth and moistening his lips with his tongue.

“No I didn’t.” I suck my bottom lip into my mouth.

What the hell am I doing?

Stop leaning in Avery.

But we move like magnets. He leans in a little. I lean in a little. Me. Him. Me. Him. There’s hardly any space left between us. I can feel the warmth of his breath. Smell the delicious scent of his cologne. He’s still holding the cigarette and smoke circles around us mixing with the intensity of the moment. Am I going to do this? Let my wall down for another guy?

No.

Yes.

No.

I never fully get to make the decision because Tristan eliminates the last of the space between us and our lips collide.

Synopsis

She can track down the world's most dangerous drug lords, hack into any computer, and kill a man in fifteen different ways—but when she comes face-to-face with the only man who’s ever held her heart, it might be her most dangerous mission yet... Or is it? 

Sloan Walker. Dr. Felicia Santora. Agent L-55. 
Three very different personas, three very different names, but all have one thing in common. They’re all controlled, acted out, and lived by one woman. 

Her past has been long forgotten. Ten years have gone by since someone remembered the girl she used to be. The young girl with the big-brown eyes and beautiful dreams of happiness, dreams of love. She now lives a clandestine life. A life filled with top-secret missions and covert assignments. Only a handful of people know the true nature of her job. Her safety is constantly being pushed towards the brink of life-threatening danger. 

Then one day someone unexpectedly steps back into her life…

A man who once owned her mind, body, and soul. 
A man who held her heart in the palm of his hand. 

He remembers. He knows. 

And this knowledge could threaten everything she’s worked so hard for. Nixon West is as intelligent as they come and his Navy SEAL training has made him one of the most dangerous weapons in the United States Military. The moment she reappeared into his life he promised himself that he wouldn't let her go. 

But the true question is…what extreme lengths will Nix go to for her? 

She will soon face another mission.

And it will test everything. 

Time never seems all that important until your life hangs in the balance. 

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock…

Blog Review: Taming Ryder by Nicola Haken

Monday, October 13, 2014

Taming Ryder blog tour banner
Synopsis


You met Ryder Richardson in Being Sawyer Knight. Now, this is his story.

I’ve done it. I’ve stuck a whopping two fingers up at my parents, I’ve made a name for myself as one of the world’s biggest porn stars and I’ve finally found a family I belong in. Life is amazing. I get paid to do all my favourite things. Fuck. Party. Travel the world. What’s not to love? And then he comes along. Mason George – Back Door Studio’s newest exclusive model and the guy who has the potential to either fuck it all up, or take me on the best ride of my life. ~ Ryder

I’m desperate. I’ve got nothing and nobody left. Entering the daunting world of adult entertainment is less of a dream and more of a necessity. Signing as Back Door Studio’s latest model has the ability to either ruin or make me, but I made a vow at my first audition never to let myself regret it. I continue to question myself each day, but no amount of what’s, why’s or what ifs will change where I am or where I’m heading. Am I strong enough to do this? To embrace it? To enjoy it? I have no idea. The only thing I’m certain of, is that if anyone can teach me who I’m supposed to be, it’s Ryder Richardson.
~ Mason


“Because the most exciting things in life always happen via the back door”


 
Ash's Review:
 
 
This is the second book in the Souls of the Knight series by Nicola Haken.  I did not read the first book, Being Sawyer Knight, but since each book are about different members of the band, I did not feel lost or confused while reading this one.
I was very excited to read this book because it sounded so different from other books that I have read in this genre.  I LOVED the fact that Ryder was an unapologetic porn star.  He loved what he did and didn't have any shame. I also loved the fact that he was "out and proud".
 
Taming Ryder is about the romance between Ryder and "newbie" Mason.  Mason is new to the porn industry and while he is working in the industry out of necessity, he does not ever seem ashamed of what he is doing.  From the beginning Ryder can tell there is something different about Mason.  He begins thinking and feeling things for him that he never thought he would experience.
 
Ryder's childhood was very different from Mason's.  Mason grew up in a home that was full of love, even after he came out as gay.  Ryder's family was prominent in politics in England and they shunned him.  Ryder also experienced something very traumatic, and it is because of this that he was determined to never fall in love.  But Mason changed that.  Taming Ryder is a story about friendship, family and love and shows us that you don't have to be blood to be a family.
 
I really enjoyed this book.  There were a few scenes that seemed a bit far fetched and sometimes it could be a little cheesy, but overall it was a great story.  The novel was also very well written.
 
I am giving Taming Ryder by Nicola Haken four glasses of Pinot Grigio, which is my new fav!  Cheers!
