Well all I can say is that Cory has hit it out of the park again. She is the reason for the bags under my eyes and the intravenous coffee drip I have attached to my veins right now. Yes I know it is my own fault actually. I should not of started this book last night, but I as soon as I saw it say that it was live . Well my one click finger was itching, so I bought. The downloaded on to kindle, read the first page then the second page . Next thing I know hubby was taking away my popcorn bowl and kissing me good night. To which I responded I will be there soon , after one more chapter , well 4 chapters later and realizing I was on chapter 17. I decided to head to bed. Just finished the book.
Let me introduce you to Latch and Haven. Latch is for the lack of a better word a extremely sexy man whore , who is also a very rich man. But he is only 25, when he sees Haven at a party he is instantly drawn to the 37 year old . With her sexy librarian look but is broken beyond repair from a past relationship. The way they meet is right out of a romance novel, as he just promises her a taste. No names change but after she passes out , Latch being the gentleman he is takes her home . Then their relationship starts . The first few times well lack of a better word were awkward. Haven tries to push him away but he doesn't. I now have a new word for a blow job. puff chore anyone. I giggled when I read that . As their relationship grows, their pasts seem to come back and haunt them and Latch's dark secret is coming to light .
Cory takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The intensity of Latch an Haven's characters just hit you in the gut. Latch is larger then life and Haven may seem naïve but she comes out of her shell and really blossoms with Latch. Cory can take a character from one extreme to the other and does it in such a way it will rip your guts out. There is one scene at the gala that you will want to kill Latch . Cory builds her characters up and lets them fall to the depths of hell only to be redeemed and you fall in love with the new and improved character. I love her female characters as they are older and seem to be broken at first then you see them grow and become the woman that they should be . You feel like she is writing just for you.. We all can pick out something from each of her characters . If it is the best friend that is there to pick you up, eat junk food with you and then turn around and kick the bastards ass that hurt you . To the guy friend that would beat the crap out of you to teach you not to treat women the way you did.
Trust me ladies . you will fall in love and then get your heart ripped out, Then fall in love again.. This is one of those books that will leave wanting more. I laughed, I wanted to slap a few characters upside the head and I cried and I mean I had an ugly cry in a couple of areas. The book is flawlessly written and Cory writes with such love you can't help but to fall in love. There is a lot of sex in this book and I do mean a lot of sex. but there is also a romance and a love story. You will be wrapped up in a whirlwind of emotion .love and sex. You will want to find a very quiet place, grab your favorite drink, snack and comfy blanket . Because once you start reading you will not stop until you are done. Your kindle might have a melt down as you read but it is so worth it. This book should be on the top of your TBR LIST. I can't wait till Cory's next book . She is becoming one of my favorite authors . Check her out.

So gifted , Alfie is given opportunities to progress both as an artiste, with his band Crakt Soundzz, but also share to his passion and pass his knowledge on to others at music college. Alfie’s journey in life should be going in one direction, but his sole focus is on taking care of his responsibilities.
Circumstances in the background dictate what he needs. And what he is willing to accept. This is something he isn’t willing to compromise on. Focused and determined, the last thing Alfie needs is a distraction. What Alfie wants and what is happening in his life are poles apart, but he is determined to keep going no matter what. For now, it he thinks it’s enough. That is, until he meets Lily, the English girl who arrives at college to study music in Miami.
Lily is Alfie’s equal in many ways, musically gifted, stunning and in a different league to any girl Alfie has ever known. She is focused and driven. Single minded about her one passion in life. Music. The only thing Lily has ever wanted in life is to play and play well.
When Lily’s journey crosses Alfie’s life path, what ensues for the both of them is a complex ride of emotions and feelings. Neither of them, despite all of their combined attributes are equipped to deal with. Alfie is emotionally locked down, both from past experiences and his current situation. Lily is sexually naive and inexperienced. When their world’s collide there are far reaching consequences for the both of them, which neither expected. How can Alfie and Lily be together? Alfie shares his thoughts, feelings and emotional conflict in his story."
This story is Alfie's point of view. It is great reading a book from the main male character. It seems like it is always the female point of view . So this was a refreshing change of pace. The story revolves around Alfie and Lily.
Alfie has it all the looks and the talent to take him places in the music world. He is working hard with his band, going to music school, Every woman wants to be with him and every man wants to become him. He is a very strong willed guy, who has a single mind on music. Enters Lily girl from England, who has come to Miami to study music. Lily is driven with music just like Alfie. There is one thing in her life that she has wanted to do is play and play well
When they come together there are sparks but there are also problems in both their pasts and when they collide there are far reaching effects for everyone .
the author does a very good job on writing from Alfie's point of view. She takes us through all the emotions and questions that one man has. She also doesn't set the whole story around the two mani characters. There author brings in various relationships around the characters . Which to me adds to the whole concept . I have read books where it is just based on the main couple. The other characters are just window dressing , Not having much to do. But not with KL 's books all the characters are a part of the story . The relationships make the book seem more real and adds to the sexual chemistry to the couple also. Love the way that music is an big part of this book, there are also some very hot smoking scenes and I loved them all.
This is book is a blend of love, romance, music and self exploration. That will take you on a very emotional rollercoaster ride. It is full of angst, raw emotion and love . Which will make you laugh, cry and actually scream at your kindle. You will fall in love with both Lily and Alfie . You want to hug Alfie well ok you will want to throw Alfie on the bed and have your way with him but ok I digress. This is a long book but once you get started you wont want to put it down . So get comfy, grab you favorite spot and your favorite snack. Then settle down to read. Trust me you will have a book hang over after you have finished the book. Great read anytime

Tad McGreevy has a power that he has never revealed, not even to his life-long best friend, Stevie Scranton. When Tad looks at others, he sees colors. These auras tell Tad whether a person is good or evil. At night, Tad dreams about the evil-doers, reliving their crimes in horrifyingly vivid detail.
But Tad doesn't know if the evil acts he witnesses in his nightmares are happening now, are already over, or are going to occur in the future. He has no control over the horrifying visions. He has been told (by his parents) never to speak of his paranormal power. All Tad knows is that he wants to protect those he loves. And he wants the bad dreams to stop.
At Tad's eighth birthday party (April 1, 1995) in Cedar Falls, Iowa, the clown his parents hire to entertain Tad's third-grade classmates is one of the bad people. Pogo, the Killer Clown (aka Michael Clay) is a serial killer. So begins 53 nights of terror as Tad relives Pogo's crime, awakens screaming, and recites the terrifying details to his disbelieving family. The situation becomes so dire that Tad is hospitalized in a private institution under the care of a psychiatrist---who also does not believe the small boy's stories of having paranormal power.
And then the police arrest Pogo, the Killer Clown.
Flash forward to the beginning of Tad's junior year in high school, 8 years later. Tad is 16 and recovered from the spring of his third-grade year. When Michael Clay was caught and imprisoned, the crime spree ended and so did Tad's bad dreams.
Until now, in the year of our Lord 2003, when evil once again stalks the land.
Well this is a book that had me turning pages , even though it has a psychotic killed clown in it . This is a well written book that takes us on a journey . Ta is just a boy when they realize that he can see auras and has dreams of death . Noone believes him so he hides it . We jump ahead where Tad is a junior in high school and has friends and is in love with his best friend Jenny. As they navigate through school and life things start to happen and events unfold as they do their best to figure out where Stevie went and how to get Jenny away from Jeremy
The author took us on an adventure . The two main characters are well written and just a little misunderstood. Pogo the clown is the epitome of evil. And no I am not biased because I hate clowns . The clown is psychotic and jut pure evil. Then there is Tad, you just really want to hug him and keep him safe. He is so sweet and kind and lovable . The boy can see evil and is trying to understand it . He doesn't know how to explain to people about the evil he sees.
There is so much more going on in this town then anyone wants to know. There is the psychotic boyfriend of Jenny's and the people cheating on each other. Jeremy is one character that has the makings to be the next serial killer. He is very abusive to his family and Jenny. Jenny was to me in my opinion, acting like an abused girlfriend. She knew she shouldn't see him but she did anyway. That to me is classic battered wife syndrome. They are very complex characters that will make you scream at the computer and then in the next sentence you want to hug them up and never let them go.
The author threw a bunch of twists and turns in the story, like what ever happened to Stevie . You actually need to keep turning the pages to find out what the hell is going on . I will tell you this isn't an easy story to read. It will actually play with your mind a bit. I know it did with my mind. I was all over the place with this book, in a good way. I just couldn't get enough . I do admit it did drag for just a minute when Jenny kept saying that she shouldn't be seeing Jeremy but it wasn't that bad .
This is a great horror/thriller that will most definitely keep you reading. You will want to know what happens and what will become of the characters . Yes you will get invested in them, Cause honestly they are like the people that are in your life and live on your street. Yes even the psycho clowns. There is a cliff hanger at the end of this book but there is book two out.
So if you want a good horror story this is the book for you. But be prepared you will most definitely hate clowns after this book. Thanks Connie for adding to my clown phobia LOL
