With everything they have been through, Becca and Tyler know that secrets get them nowhere. They have made great leaps and bounds in their relationship, but Becca can’t help but feel he is still keeping something from her. Between the local detective snooping around and asking questions at the Conklin building and Tyler’s evasive answers, Becca remains skeptical about his excuses. The detective seems more interested in Tyler’s father’s “projects”, but Tyler’s hands seem to be in the pot as well.
Unfortunately, Tyler’s past comes back in his face along with his shady business. Will Becca hold true to her new found confidence and claim what’s hers… including Tyler?
Conklin's Foundation is the second book in Conklin's Trilogy, written by Brooke Page. I read the first book, Conklin's Blueprints, and fell in love with both Becca and Tyler, as well as the book and the author. I finished Blueprints and immediately one clicked this one so I could immediately continue reading this amazing love story. I was not disappointed.
In this sequel, it becomes even more evident that this new author has amazing talent. The story continues to be believable while it makes you feel all type of emotions! The sequel is well written, as the first book is, and again, it is a novel rather than a novella. I just feel deeper in love in with Tyler. Another well written work of art from Brook Page.
Unfortunately, I do not have the option to one click the third and final book of this series. I have to wait impatiently for it to be released and THIS has thrown me into a book hang over. I may not be able to read another book until the next book is released. There is no cliff hanger. I just can't get enough of Tyler and Becca.
Again, I highly recommend this book by Brooke Page. This second installment picks up where the first one stops without a cliff hanger. I do recommend that you read this series in order. It's not a bad thing because you'll not want to miss a second of Becca and Tyler!
Once again, I'm amazed and awed by the talent that this brand new author possesses! One click now and see for yourself!

She is reviewing THE LONELY by Tara Brown
This is not a love story. It is so much more. But like all things in life, you have to get past the worst to get to the best.
This is a dark and captivating novel, tread lightly.
The truth is subjective to what the lonely lets in.
Emalyn Spicer has lived with it for a long time. She thinks it goes back further than her memories do. She knows it goes back further than the OCD.
When she arrives at college, her OCD's and the lonely refuse to let her have her wish to be normal.
When she meets Sebastian and starts to fall for him, she lets herself believe it's possible to outrun the things chasing her from the past. But how to you get away from the things inside of you? How do you run from yourself?
Just as she gives up and succumbs to the lonely, the unthinkable happens. She finds herself once again trapped in the dark, once again held against her will.
This time she meets the lonely head on. In the darkest corners of her mind, she discovers there is more to her world than she ever imagined. She discovers that the lonely was there for her, protecting her from herself and her secrets.
How far would you go to find yourself?

The story is written mostly in the first person. Dan's point of view. The author does that seamlessly there are a couple of spots that it changes but it is part of the story line, The scenes are so well written it almost feels like you standing in the snow in Lake Tahoe or running for your life in Vegas. You find yourself cheering for the good guys and wanting to find out who the murder was .
The story is well written and flowed so well I was engrossed from the very first chapter. I was reading well into the night and I just couldn't put it down. I so wanted to figure out who did it. I couldn't do it, I was so confused but in a good way. I just couldn't figure it out. The conversations are realistic and you can hear the voices in your head as you read.
So if you want a great detective book give this on a chance I know you won' t be disappoint I know I wasn't

***Warning: Graphic sex and violence. Age 18+ only. This is the sequel to Deliver but can be read as a stand-alone. Her life is like a prison cell. A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside. Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe. He belongs in a prison cell. The 6x8, make-me-your-b*tch variety that locks from the outside. But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break. And he just found a sexy new toy. Capturing her is the easy part. Her f*cked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next. But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.
Ok here it is OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD. I was so happy and honored to get an ARC of this book. I was so excited when I cracked open my kindle. I got my bowl of popcorn and my drink and sat down to read. Next thing I knew hubby was coming into the house asking me what was for dinner. My response ummm whatever you want cause I am at a very important part in the book. All I heard from the kitchen at that time was a snort and a grumble as he made burritos and ate the leftover Chinese food in the fridge. He knows not to bother me when I am engrossed in a book like I was with this book. Ok I will now get to the review part of the book and stop talking about the eating habits of the man in my life.
Ok this is Van's book. If you have read deliver, you will remember Van. I hated him in Deliver but that is what a good villain is. You hate him and then he comes back to redeem him. This book is all about Van and his redemption. You find him at the beginning of the book stalking Liv and her new boyfriend. He wanted to find out where his and Liv's daughter was . Well he didn't know that the house he was sitting at was actually occupied by a gorgeous woman that has so many issues of her own . She hasn't left her house and is OCD. Amber is off her rocker, honestly this poor woman you just want to wrap her up and lock her away at the beginning of the book. Van finds her right in the middle of a panic attack as she tried to go outside to get the parcels she needed. He was instantly attracted to her and he wanted to break her and then use her to help with Liv and getting access to his daughter. He first had to break her of the phobias she has. That could be difficult. Well its harder then both of them think.
Lets see what can I say about Van, He is so hot from his grey eyes to his made for sex body. To the alpha, dominance. He is one melt your panties off man. But there is a sadness within him. That we find all about in this book. You just want to take him in your arms and hug him tight an let him know everything will be all right. Then throw him on the bed and have your way with him in every position imaginable. His redemption was so powerful I had the ugly cry. He turns out to be a great guy.
This book had me page turning, I couldn't put it down. Pam takes us to the pits of hell with both the characters. She shows us the cracked broken souls that they have. The hell that made them the way they are now. I love the way the Pam makes you go from love to hate and then back to love. She loves to throw so many twists and turns. YES I ADMIT IT I ugly cried and I mean I really ugly cried.
Not going to give you any spoilers but there are a couple of times that will make you cry cause it is so heart breaking and gut retching, you will want to either throw your kindle across the room or hug it tight. This is the second book to Deliver but it can also stand alone. But if you want really get to know Van I strongly suggest you read Deliver before you read Vanquish cause you will understand more about what motivates Van. If you love dark erotic tales this is the book for you .
this book deserves more then 5 stars you can give it on the sites . Check it out , I promise you that you will enjoy

Explore Jessica Aspen's new world of contemporary, new adult, Gothic romance with her new series of short paranormals: Haunted Holidays.
I fell in love with Jessica Aspen when I found her first book in the TALES OF THE BLACK COURT TALES. Since then I have well lets just say kind a stalked around Jessica's page and grabbed her new releases up. I loved her paranormal stories so when I saw that she started a new world of new adult romance with a mix of paranormal. I was intrigued. I knew she could write about fairies and twisted fairy tales. Now I was excited when I got this book. As I read the blurb I went ooooh this could be good it takes us back to a past life and a ghost story. I love a good ghost story and I love a good romance. So combining them is the cats meow for this girl
As I started reading I met Jen Mcnamera a girl running away from a wedding of her best friend and her ex boyfriend and an overbearing mom. Just wanting time alone. She comes to the farmhouse that Nate is renting to her. Oh Nate is hot and so damaged from a past relationship. All he wants at the beginning is to rent out the farmhouse to pay his brothers off and maybe have a holiday lay.
As the story progresses poor Jen is terrorized by a ghost and Nate and her have to work together to get to the bottom of the reason of the haunting. As they work together they realize that they are growing closer and realizing that they are great together. But will they survive the ghost and the past to claim their future
For a first book in the contemporary romance , Jessica hit it out of the park. She takes a ghost story an mixes in a love story that goes from the past to the present. The story flowed flawlessly between the past and the present. There were some really steamy scenes also. Both in the past and the present.
Jessica's characters are always well written and it is true about these characters. Even the ghost is well written and oh boy she is evil and selfish. You can see the characters evolve and grow with each turn of the page. Even though this is a ghost story it is also a love story between two people and you can feel the love story coming through.
This was a sexy page turning novella which will take you into the past to help understand the present. So if you want to read a suspenseful sexy story that has a terrifying ghost and a hot and sexy couple check out Jessica's new book . I give it a five star rating and I want you to add it to your reading list today

She is no longer free.

There are no rules. Only payment
I have been waiting for this book since Pepper told us she was writing it. I stalked her page daily for any information on this mysterious man named Jethro Hawk. Pepper described him as evil pure evil.
So when I started this book I was like ok bring on the hot Alpha man, but let me tell you I wasn't expecting such a cold man. Lets just say that Jethro make other alpha males like Christian Grey and others look like bumbling teenagers. He is cold hearted and so much in control. He will drive you crazy you will either want to slap him or throw him on the bed tie him up and do what ever you want to him. He is just as my friend Ashleigh said he is evil hotness and you just can't get enough, Of course we will love to hate him, like all bad ass characters. Nila is an overprotected, overworked shy woman with very little experience that we all know Jethro will use to his advantage in getting her to break.
Pepper is the queen of Dark erotic tales . She will take you to the pits of hell and rip your heart out. Trust me you will need a box of Kleenex when you read her books. The twists and turns will take you to the ends of the earth and back. Her characters are so dark and so well written, you so want to slap a few of them and hug the others. When you think you can't go any darker Pepper comes up with a scene like the dining room scene where everyone gets to basically meet her and taste her. That one shocked me a I read it . I mean I could feel her humiliation and the realization that she has to do this to get info on why she is there. There is a big cliff hanger at the end of the book and trust me it will leave you with a bunch of questions. Trust me I had a few like who the hell is Daniel and is he crazy or just jealous of Jethro and will Nila ever find out exactly what happened a long time ago
I can't wait for the second installment. I want to find out what happens. So if you want a great dark story that will take to the depths of hell and back. Check out DEBT INHERITANCE . Trust me you will not be disappointed at all

But when that hero turns out to be a rogue vampyre prince with a haunted past, Leena begins to question if her feelings for him are the work of divine intervention, or a love spell gone horribly wrong.
Athena’s Oracle is a prequel to the novels Dark Heirloom and Dark Liaison, also by J.D. Brown. Set in 4th century B.C.E., Athena’s Oracle chronicles the romance between Leena and Jalmari during the very early trials of their immortal lives.

Little does Becca know the owner of the architecture firm she lands a job with has an intriguingly mysterious son. Tyler Conklin is infatuated with Becca, yet is apprehensive about a public relationship because of his hidden baggage. Not wanting anyone to know about his slight obsession with her, their potential relationship must be kept a secret. Will Becca put up with Tyler’s untold story for long? Will she tolerate being his secret?
Conklin's Blueprints, by new author Brooke Page, is the first book in Conklin's Trilogy. It is a real novel about an amazing love story that does not put you in a land of make believe. I was glued to the book from the first word. I finished in less than two days. It is an amazing story with hot love scenes. Tyler Conklin is every thing a lady wants in a man. Once again, my list of book boyfriends has grown!
Wow... This book is from a new author AND this is her first ever book. REALLY? I'm stunned, amazed and in awe. Brooke Page has amazing talent and I predict she will go far with her writing career. I don't usually read plain vanilla romances because they are just fairy tales and I stopped believing in those a long time ago. Conklin's Blueprints was a definite exception. This book has believable REAL characters. Yes, they have scars and they have issues and baggage, but even those are real and believable. I immediately related to Becca, the female lead. I felt as if I could actually be her. I wish I was her!
This is the beginning of a great love story that is not easily forgettable. Better yet, it's also a story of two people coming together due to a chance meeting and then beginning the process of helping one another heal. I fell in love with the two main characters. There are other characters I either loved, hated or felt sorry for. I yelled at time. I cried at times. I laughed at times. Then toward the end, I cheered out loud so much that my family thought I was crazy! That's how much I got involved in the story. I felt as though I was in it with the characters as a friend. I wanted to hug Brooke for courage. But enough! You'll have to find out all of this yourself by one clicking now!
The characters and plot are well developed and the plot moves smoothly. The dialogue is flawless. I was unable to put this book this down and read it in one sitting. Despite being part of a series, the book is written as a full novel rather than the ever popular novella that is so frustrating to me. After completing this book, I immediately one clicked the second book in the series, as I was not yet ready to leave Tyler and Becca. There is no cliffhanger but rather more to experience. I highly recommend this book...

Patti just keeps getting better and better with each episode. The twists and turns are coming fast , one minute you think you have it figured out and boom Patti throws the twist that sends you in a totally different direction. I still haven't tried to figure it out, I am just loving every episode. I so can't wait for episode 7, yes I admit it I am addicted to this story and the way it is written. Patti just has a way with words and her characters are so lifelike and you just want to cheer for them, You want the girls to find out what they really are and soon.
