THE GIRL I LOVED IS THE WOMAN I CAN’T HAVE

It was simple: Pay the debt and I stay out of jail. Pay the debt and I stay alive.

But I sacrificed it all for Beth.

I didn’t pay what I owed. I’m sure punishment is coming, but I can take it – as long as Beth is safe. Away from her mother and everyone else who would hurt her.

I gave it all up for two days with her. And it was worth it.

She always was.

THE SECRETS WE KEEP ARE WHAT TEARS US APART

We’re supposed to be done. Over. Tommy goes his way, I go mine. Cue the heartbreaking music.

I’m supposed to forget him, but I don’t think I can. And when the danger closes in on Tommy, we’re on the run again. From Bates. From my mother. From our past. And there are no safe places to hide.

Except one. And it’s the place that will hurt Tommy the most.

But maybe it’s time for me to face my past. My demons.

Maybe it’s time for me to save Tommy for once.

My Review:

4 Stars!

Oh my… the drama continues as Beth’s and Tommy’s story picks up where book one left off. Beth and Tommy are on the run. They have demons to face and danger around every turn.

I was super psyched for this book. We got the past in book 1 and now we get the present. The pace was a little slow, but the ending made it for it. The tale is gritty and ugly at times, but beautiful and sweet the next.

A great wrap up to Beth and Tommy and their epic story!

Beautiful young couple hugging and kissing isolated on black background.

ALL DEBTS MUST BE PAID

Tommy

Seven years ago, I thought I could save Beth, the girl I loved from the monster who was supposed to take care of us. I thought I could keep Beth and all the other kids at St. Jude’s Home for Court Placed Juveniles safe.

I failed. Badly. Now we all have blood on our hands and owe a dangerous man a very dangerous debt. We don’t know when he’ll come calling for payment, but when he does – we pay, or we suffer.

When my turn comes, I’m ready for anything.

Except seeing Beth again.

LOVE IS NEVER FREE

Beth

No one ever tells you that the cost of having your dreams come true is literally every single other part of your life. Yes, I’m a huge pop star these days, but I’m pretty much a mess, too.

I’ve spent my life hiding behind disguises, make-up and costumes, all to protect myself from the kind of pain that comes from revealing your true self to someone.

I did that once. With Tommy. The only person I ever loved. It didn’t turn out so well.

And now, with everything else falling apart around me, I’m suddenly in the backseat of his car.

Being kidnapped.

And the past we’ve both tried to run from is catching up with us.

Contains The Debt: A Prologue and 50,000 more words in the continuation of Tommy and Beth’s story

New Release: Don’t Look Back by Vicki Tharp

Don’t Look Back
Vicki Tharp
Publication date: November 19th 2011
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Ridley Meyer’s latest murder left him unsatisfied, but the spitfire with the U-haul may provide just the challenge he craves.

Veterinarian Audrey West is running out of time, yet she is determined to keep her inherited home out of foreclosure. With no more than a dream, a prayer, and a packed U-Haul, West moves back home to complete the expensive repairs. Just when Audrey thinks she might pull off the impossible, she finds her dream is not the only thing being followed.

Scott Romero has it all—money, ambition and a growing reputation as the city’s top veterinary surgeon. However, when his best friend Audrey is abducted by a killer, Scott realizes what he doesn’t have and he must risk losing his job, and his life, to save her.

Don’t Look Back was a 2007 Romantic Suspense finalist in the Romance Writer’s of America Golden Heart writing contest.

EXCERPT:

He leaned in to scrutinize his work. “Let me see.”

She turned toward him.

He pushed her hand out of the way. He poked. He prodded. He pressed. “I did Doctor Frankenstein proud. Maybe my stepmother was right. I should’ve been a real doctor. At least I wouldn’t have risked my veterinary license stitching you up.”

“I don’t—”

“I know. I know. You don’t like hospitals.”

“It’ll take more than a little thump to get me in one again.”

“Little thumps don’t require stitches. Little thumps don’t give you a concussion. And little thumps don’t get you almost killed.”

“Not this again.”

“Yes. This again.”

He raised his hands and took a step back. “Do me a favor.”

“What’s that?”

“The next time one of your clients waves a gun around, stay out of the way.”

“What in the purple hell did you expect me to do? Let her kill herself?”

“You should’ve gone for help.”

“Ms. Sims wasn’t trying to hurt me. Her dog, her baby, dropped dead. She was distraught, disturbed. If I hadn’t nosedived into the bench grabbing for the gun, I doubt

I’d’ve had a scratch on me.” Audrey squeezed her head to keep it from exploding.

“You’re not Superwoman. Bullets won’t bounce off you.”

She didn’t have the energy for this. “Finished?”

“Not hardly.” Scott tilted his head and gave her that sexy half-smile. That devilish smile. That maddening smile the lucky few had followed to his bed.

It was too painful to think about, and not just because of her headache, so she pushed it from her mind. “Thanks for letting me crash at your place last night. And for stitching me up.”

She’d stuffed everything she owned into her truck and U-Haul trailer. That wasn’t saying much since the truck and trailer were small.

“Staying at a hotel by yourself with a concussion wasn’t and option. As for the other, I don’t know how you talked me into it. You’ll probably have a scar.”

“Not a problem as long as your malpractice is paid.”

A laugh rumbled his chest, but the smile quickly slid from his lips. “You should stay a day or two. Make sure you’re really okay.”

Audrey scooched back and propped herself up against the leather headboard. Her brain protested behind the fireworks and the nine-piece drumline. “I’ve only got thirty days to finish the repairs on my uncle’s house. I have to leave today. I’ll call you from the road, let you know I haven’t bled out into my head.”

“Not funny.” Scott frowned but kept her gaze. “I’m due at the animal hospital at seven. I’m going to miss having you around. Guess I can’t talk you into staying for good, huh?”

“What?” Her voice jumped two octaves. “Who’s the one who stood in my kitchen two weeks ago and told me I should go? ‘This is your last chance to make good on your promise to your uncle,’ you said. ‘Take a chance on your dream,’ you said. Don’t even—”

“Down, girl.” Scott eased her back into the pillows with a hand on her shoulder.

Thank God. Hells-bells clanged in her head.

“Forget I said anything. At least sleep for a few more hours and then head out. You don’t look so hot.”

No kidding.

He patted her leg and by the way he didn’t get up to leave, she knew he wanted to say more, but he wasn’t any better at goodbyes than she was. Then Scott braced his hands on either side of her head, and planted a quick kiss on her nose. Like an adult to a child.

It might have hurt less if he’d eviscerated her with a spork.

She was leaving Texas. This morning. For good.

She snagged his tie. “If that’s the best you can do, Romero, it’s no wonder your girlfriends leave you.”

Why had she baited him? He couldn’t refuse a challenge, any more than a dachshund could refuse table scraps.

Was her mind muddled from the concussion? Or was she finally thinking clearly? One kiss. That’s all she wanted.

Like a lover, not a friend. Stupid. He’d locked her in the friend-zone years ago.

Except for the night of her high school graduation.

And two weeks ago when he’d convinced her she should leave.

The look in his eyes was the same now as then. Want, need, hunger.

Hand over hand she pulled him down. His lips brushed hers. Her breath caught. She blamed the

concussion. Her hands trembled. She blamed the pain. Her heart hurt. She blamed herself.

She wrapped her arms around his neck, deepened the kiss, tasted the coffee on his tongue, smelled the subtle tang of surgical scrub that never quite left his skin. She tilted her head, and he nipped her lips, traced the line of her jaw and down to her pounding pulse at the base of her neck. She guided him on top of her, his weight braced on his arms, but she drew him down until his full weight pinned her.

She floated.

No fears, no worries, no will power.

No wondering if she should stop or if she could stop – because she didn’t want to stop.

When Drew Lawless discovers a fatal flaw in his plan to avenge his parents’ deaths, he turns to the one woman he promised he wouldn’t touch. He offers her a deal, one that will bring her into his investigation, his life, and his bed.

Investigative reporter Shelby Gates never dreamed how twisted the case would become—or how fascinated she would be with Drew. Every day they spend together binds them. And every night brings her closer to realizing he might be the man for her.

As Drew’s feelings for Shelby grow, so does the danger. From the streets of Dallas to Austin’s high-tech business world, Drew and Shelby play a game begun twenty years before—a game they will win, or die trying.

Shelby brushed her lips against his, her whole body seeming to come to life. His lips were soft, his hands tight. He was enveloping her and she was completely defenseless against him.

She wrapped her arms around him as the kiss deepened, and suddenly she didn’t want to play it safe anymore. She’d been in her shell for so long and she wanted to come out of it, wanted to feel again. She dragged her tongue over his lower lip, and it seemed to awaken the beast in Drew.

He took over, the kiss going from sweet to carnal in an instant. His mouth opened, tongue sliding over hers and dominating with strength and a sensuality she’d never come across before. He kissed her long and hard, his hands molding to the curves of her body. Over and over again his tongue danced with hers. Never before had a kiss seemed so effortless. It was like they’d been kissing forever.

For a man who claimed he was socially awkward, he sure could kiss like a god.

It was getting out of hand, but she didn’t care. Nothing mattered except getting more of him. She could feel his cock under her, hardening, lengthening, getting ready for what it was meant to do. He could ease her back against the table, pull off her jeans and panties. It would be incendiary, like a rocket going off, an explosion she couldn’t contain. She could feel herself getting soft and wet and ready for him, as though her body had recognized its natural mate and wasn’t taking no for an answer.

“See, I told you we have chemistry.” His words rumbled along her lips.

She couldn’t argue with him. The world around them seemed hazy and unreal. There was nothing except his touch and scent and the sight of his eyes looking at her like he could eat her up. She knew she should stop him, knew it was getting out of control, but she couldn’t find the will. It had been so damn long since she wanted something she could actually have.

She wanted him.

Shelby let her fingers sink into his hair, drawing him back down. Breakfast could wait. She needed more of him.

New Release: Unforgiven by Willow Winters

 

 

Title: Unforgiven
Series: Sins and Secrets #2
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 19, 2017
Blurb
The sins of his past can’t be forgiven.
Mason Thatcher gave me chills when I first laid eyes on
him.  The good kind. The kind that makes your body ache and your heart
hammer.  
What’s better is that he looked at me the same way.
There was a hunger in his eyes that wouldn’t be sated, and a
confidence in his stride that told me I could never run from him. Back then, I
didn’t want to.
It’s not fair that his touch eased my pain.  
That his lips on mine made my worries vanish.  
That his love gave me a reason to breathe again.
With him, I felt complete, as if fate had given me a second
chance.
Then I learned the truth: the sins and secrets of what really
brought us together.  
I knew it was too good to be true, but I could never have
imagined he’d be capable of something so cold and cruel.
There’s no way we can go back to what we once were and it’s
not as easy as walking away.  He won’t let me.  He can’t risk me
telling his secrets.

I don’t know what choices I have or how I’ll survive this.
What he’s done is unforgivable, but that doesn’t mean he’s
going to let me go.

Contains The Debt: A Prologue and 50,000 more words in the continuation of Tommy and Beth’s story

My Review:

4 Stars!

I will warn you, this is not an easy read. The nature of the book is dark and there could be triggers.

The story is told in two parts – the past (7 years prior) and then the present. Dark things happened to the kids in the past portion of the book that affected all of their futures. Skip ahead 7 years and things are not at all peachy keen for these kids, who are now adults. They owe a debt to a mystery man and live in fear of what will be asked of them.

The story focuses on Tommy and Beth/Jada. Seven years before, they were young and falling in love. Then something happened that changed the course of their lives. They never thought they would see each other again, but an unexpected request sends them back into each other’s lives and not in the best of ways. Now, they don’t know how to treat each other. There are unresolved feelings, the most prominent being hurt. They have tried to forget each other, but neither were fully able.

I got this, the mixed feelings and the hesitancy. I got how and why Tommy felt the way he did. That didn’t mean I didn’t root for them to see each other and get over the ghosts haunting them. The book is emotional and dark and it sometimes hurts to read, but I read it in one setting. It ends on a huge cliffhanger that leaves one of the MCs in grave danger and the other MCs safety in jeopardy. Luckily, the second book comes out a week after the first.

Let yourself get lost in Tommy and Beth’s world.

Blog Tour: 4 Stars for Hard Stick by L. P. Dover

Title: Hard Stick
Series: A Breakaway Novel
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 13, 2017
Publisher: Random House/Loveswept
He carries a big stick. And he’s not afraid to use it.

On the ice, I’m Kellan Carter, powerhouse enforcer for the Charlotte Strikers. Off the ice, I’m just a regular guy. The last thing I want is to get mobbed by a bunch of groupies who are only after me for my fame and money. My ideal woman knows how to enjoy a little good, clean fun—and maybe some not-so-clean fun too. That’s the kind of girl I’d never let go.
When Kristen Robinson, the gorgeous, down-to-earth bartender I’ve been crushing on, agrees to let me take her out, I’m thrilled. We have an amazing night together, culminating in the most electrifying kiss of my life—and that’s it. Kristen tells me we can’t see each other again, but I know that kiss meant as much to her as it did to me. What I don’t know is that Kristen has a dangerous secret. . . .
I’ve proved to Kristen that she can trust me with her body and her heart. But when her past comes back to haunt her, I need to prove that she can trust me with her life. And I might have to get my hands dirty after all.
** Hard Stick is an action-packed romantic suspense. Just to warn you, the story line does NOT center around hockey. The main character plays but a lot of the book is set outside of the rink. **

My Review:

4 Stars!

Hey! Bet you already knew this, but just in case… this is not a sports romance. The male MC just happens to be a hockey player.

Now that that is cleared up…

I loved Kristen. Look, we all make bad choices in guys at some point in our lives. Kristen just happened to make a stellarly bad choice and had to pay for it. Everything changed and she and her best friend had to pay quite a price. In the end, she ends up with the very right guy–Kellan.

L P Dover always amazes me with her ability to write an lovely romance and add in a good dose of suspense and a dash of danger. It’s one of the reasons I love her books. The other reason – her characters. She writes amazing characters with flaws and issues and enough good to make you root for them. Hard Stick is no different. I wanted Kristen and Kellan to find their way to an epic romance.

Great writing and a good story plus great MCs make this one a great read!

“L. P. Dover did a great job with this book and if you know going into that it has more of a suspenseful love story, you might not be so surprised. I recommend this book. I couldn’t put it down.”—Wicked Love of Books

“I loved this book! A great romantic/suspenseful story with a HEA (and it also involved sports which is always a plus with me). I really liked the author’s style of writing.”—Rebel Spinster (five stars)

Hard Stick may have been my first L. P. Dover novel, but it won’t be my last. I am so excited to see what’s next in the Breakaway series.”—A Novel Glimpse

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L. P. Dover is a southern belle living in North Carolina with her husband and two beautiful girls. Before she began her literary journey she worked in periodontics, enjoying the wonderment of dental surgeries.

She loves to write, but she also loves to play tennis, go on mountain hikes and white water rafting, and has a passion for singing. Her two youngest fans expect a concert each and every night before bedtime, usually Christmas carols.

Dover has written countless novels, including her Forever Fae series, the Second Chances series, the Gloves Off series, the Armed & Dangerous series, the Royal Shifters series, the Society X series, the Circle of Justice series, and her standalone novel Love, Lies, and Deception. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense, but if she got to choose a setting in which to live, it would be with her faeries in the Land of the Fae.

I loved Kristen. Look, we all make bad choices in guys at some point in our lives. Kristen just happened to make a stellarly bad choice and had to pay for it. Everything changed and she and her best friend had to pay quite a price. In the end, she ends up with the very right guy–Kellan.

L P Dover always amazes me with her ability to write an lovely romance and add in a good dose of suspense and a dash of danger. It’s one of the reasons I love her books. The other reason – her characters. She writes amazing characters with flaws and issues and enough good to make you root for them. Hard Stick is no different. I wanted Kristen and Kellan to find their way to an epic romance.

Great writing and a good story plus great MCs make this one a great read!

Excerpt

“So what happened to Maddox? I couldn’t help but notice his
face.”
Dallas and Braeden glanced at each other and chuckled.
“Kellan fucked him up in practice,” Dallas replied.
I gasped. “Why?”
He finished off his beer, and I could tell he was feeling it
by the lazy smile. “It’s what he does. Maddox was being a dick and Kellan put a
stop to it. It’s why he’s our captain.”
“Wow, that’s craziness.”
I ran his card and held it out to him, but he grabbed on to
my hand. “You haven’t agreed to go out with him, have you?”
“Who? Kellan?” I asked. The girls gawked at me and snorted.
He nodded. “Yeah.”
“No, why?”
“Just asking,” he said with a shrug. He put his arm around
the blonde and they started for the door. “It’d be nice to get the five hundred
dollars.” They stopped and he smiled at me over his shoulder.
“What are you talking about?” I demanded.
Braeden sighed and smacked Dallas on the back of the head.
“Stop fucking with the girl.” Then he turned to me. “It was just a stupid bet.”
“Stupid?” Dallas laughed. “You put three hundred on it, so I
don’t want hear that shit.” In a drunken haze, he smiled over at me. “Just do
us a favor and don’t go out with him until after the weekend. We made a bet
that he couldn’t get you by the end of the week.”
Braeden hit him again. “What the fuck? Shut the hell up.” He
pushed Dallas out the door and they all followed him. So Kellan agreed to the
bet? That was mighty bold of him.
I could hear steps on the hardwood floor behind me. “You all
right?” Chris asked.
Turning on my heel, I smiled. “Yep.” If Kellan was trying to
win the bet, he wasn’t trying very hard. But then again, maybe five hundred
dollars was nothing compared to the money he earned. I used to make a good
living, but at least I was able to retrieve the money I had in the bank before
my supposed death. Having that money helped, especially since I didn’t make
nearly as much working at the pub. Hopefully soon I’d be back to doing what I
loved.
“Why don’t you go home? I can finish up here,” Chris
offered.
“You sure? I don’t mind staying.”
He shook his head. “Go. You do enough here as it is.”
I hurried behind the bar and grabbed my purse. “Thanks,
Chris. After all the training Aylee puts me through, I’m exhausted by nine
o’clock.”
“I can imagine.” He laughed. “I know not to mess with you
now.”
Aylee taught me many self-defense techniques and how to
fight. Before, I had no clue what to do if someone attacked me. After
everything that happened with Mitchell and Cole, I had to make sure I was ready
for anything. At least now, I wouldn’t have to worry about it anymore.
I waved goodbye to Chris and then walked out the door. The
night was cool and I breathed in the clean air; the smell of rain was near. We
needed it after the long, dry summer we had. Looking over at my car, I didn’t
realize there was a truck parked next to me with someone leaning against it. It
wasn’t just any someone, either.
“Where were you tonight?” I asked, looking straight at
Kellan’s smiling face. He had on a pair of jeans that hung low on his hips with
a snug green T-shirt that showed off his perfectly sculpted arms. Why did he have
to be so sexy? Not to mention, he had perfectly straight, white teeth, which I
thought would be a rarity among hockey players.
“So you missed me, huh?”
His smile was infectious and I caught myself smiling back.
“I wouldn’t say missed, but I was curious where you were. I saw what you did to
Maddox.”
He shrugged. “It had to be done. Maddox has a large fucking
head and needed to be brought down.”
I held up my hands. “You don’t have to explain. I, of all,
people know what kind of head he has.” It was the size of the entire country.
Chuckling, he stepped forward, his gaze roaming over my
body. “You seem different tonight. It’s not very often you smile.”
I hadn’t had a reason to, but I couldn’t tell him that.
“Maybe it’s because I know something you don’t.”
“Oh yeah? What’s that?”
“Uh, I don’t know, perhaps something about a bet?”

Excerpt

 

After a restless night, John woke early. She’d slept at his back,
unmoving, all night. But her presence there, the warmth of her body and the
sound of her soft breathing, might as well have been the five alarms to the
fire that had sprung to life in his blood—loud, screaming, and made to put a
man into action.
He sighed as he opened his laptop and sent an email to Hawk.
No updates yet. No evidence left behind of who the shooter might have
been.
Team news was slow as well. Jamie had left for Belize. Marcus traded in
his truck for a jeep. Tyler had gone back to work this week, and things seemed
to be going well for him and Jenny. Hawk maintained he would keep their
whereabouts to himself until he was sure. There had been some inconsistencies
from the Press. Two who spoke to Hawk claimed an informant.
John frowned. He couldn’t think of a single person from his team who
would spill the beans. They were family. They argued sometimes. But never…
“No.” He shut his laptop and checked his watch. Time to catch a plane.
“I still think we should go back to Harbor View.” Emily sat, watching
him, her brows furrowed, her legs folded in front of her and wrapped in her
arms. “We’d have Eddie. It’s safe there.”
Heat rose on his neck at the sight of her, sitting there, looking so
very darn tempting, so very not his to touch. His MO was to avoid close encounters—with
women in general. The rules of waiting had been pounded into his brain too long
for him to merely disregard them. He went on dates, just fine. He liked the
company of the softer sex, like the talking and the thought that went into it,
especially after hours and sometimes days of being around the male variety.
Emily was as far from the softer sex as he’d ever come across. Even the
other women at Hawk Elite—the few—had a soft edge and ways of doing things that
was apparently female. This women had steel in her spine. She was sharper,
harder even than some of the guys. Malcolm.
So to see her sitting there, looking so…pretty, so very mellow and
delicate, even a little uncertain forced him to see vulnerability, no matter
how sexist that was.
“Hello?” Emily tilted her head and unintentionally bared her shoulder
when the collar of her shirt shifted.
He rolled his eyes and stood. “We have to go if we’re going to catch
our flight.”
She rose, wearing only a very short pair of shorts. He quickly turned
to give her privacy. “I’m going to throw my bag in the truck and check out. Get
dressed.”
“Okay, Father John,” she said, a laugh in her tone.
He never let that nickname bother him before. This time it stopped him,
and he turned back and saw the laughter in her eyes, yet it wasn’t
condescending or even cruel. And then she winked. He took her in with his eyes,
her messed up air and rumpled clothes, and bit back a serious moan. When his
gaze met hers again, her eyes were wide as if she was surprised…
That he was attracted to her? That he was a man and wanted her?
He let her see, because it was one thing when the guys ribbed him about
being a priest, but when she said those words, it turned into something
completely unholy.
“Right,” she squeaked and hurried to the bathroom. “I’ll get ready to
go.”
He slammed the door when he went out, thankful when the cold air hit
his skin and cooled the heat within. He sent up a silent plea of mercy and
wasn’t surprised when only the whisper of the wind was his answer. Some things
didn’t need words.

Beth Rhodes grew up thinking she was going to travel the
world and be a missionary, helping the poor. She would travel to exciting
places…like Russia and Australia. She was going to wear a canvas backpack and
take a wooden raft down a river through the jungle. She never had any plans for
romance or getting married, either. But after a few years of college, studying
English Literature, she married her own real-life hero, who patiently puts up
with her absentmindedness and creativity… And the only poor babies she helps
now are her own six children.
She learned that life doesn’t always go the way she plans,
except for one thing, BOOKS.
At a young age, she read Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew then
worked her way through series by Brock and Bodie Thoene and Gilbert Morris. And
finally, she broke into romance with Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Nobody’s Baby
But Mine. Her one constant, besides God, has always been books. So it was no
surprise when she started writing them… 
Beth writes in order to share a little love and lots of hope
with a hurting world.
