*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
“Save Me and I’ll save you”
Wow!! The Nocte Trilogy by Courtney Cole has finally come to an end and what an ending it was to Calla & Finn Price and Dare DuBray story. They say that everything comes to those who wait!! And after waiting I'm glad to say that Courtney didn’t disappoint. I can’t even begin to tell about what I have just read as I could do it justice and it probably wouldn’t make any sense. Ha-ha, But what I will say is the Courtney continues to take you on what I can only call in the nicest possible way a complete mind F*** for one last time.
"We're all a bit mad, aren't we?"
Within the first few chapters, I'm starting to rethink everything, any ideas, any feelings that I had started to go out the window. It was a case of what I thought I knew I didn’t. So I didn’t over think it, I just went with it knowing that Courtney would steer me right. So yes, I will confess there were many times I was confused, but in a funny sort of way I didn’t mind as it was what I was expecting. The end of Calla, Finn, and Dare twisted journey was never going to be a simple.
“I really am crazy, I’m as crazy as they say. I’m crazy”
“He stares at me, into me, through me”
I am going to repeat some of what I said in my Nocte review as I feel exactly the same way. Lux is a beautifully written, poetic cleverly crafted story. With intriguing and complex characters who share a special relationship and bond. There were lots of twist and turns that are intricately woven into the story, and at first may not make sense but they will at some point. Don’t even try to figure it out just go with and you will get a story that is unique and compelling.
“You have the power to change it. You always have, and you always do. Change it to the way it should be. Do it.”
I loved the ending and, of course, it was not what I was expecting twists until the very end, and it was very clever. I totally 100% agree with Courtney’s author’s notes at the end of the book. The way you interpret the ending will come down to what you believe in and your own beliefs. If you believe in fate, Kismet and that things happen that can’t be explained (like me) you will love the ending it if not, then maybe not so much, but I don’t think you will be disappointed.
"Warmth rushes through me because Kismet always prevails. The jury has decided. I feel it in my bones."
If you haven’t started this series, then I highly recommend that you one click it today. Don’t read other reviews as this series you need to go into knowing very little to get the full experience. You will also be in a great position that you can read each book back-to-back. I will admit I had forgotten a few things, as it had been a while since reading the first 2 books. What I needed was what you sometimes get at the start of a season of my favourites shows. …..”Previously in Notce and Verum” Lol
The Nocte Trilogy has been a crazy, frustrating, unpredictable, unique roller-coaster ride and overall I have loved it. Thank you, Courtney, for your wonderful imagination and bring this story to life. Look forward to seeing what that clever mind of yours has in store for us next.
The number of times!

Title: Working Girl
Author: A.E. Woodward
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Category: New Adult
Release Date: September 22nd, 2015
I thought he was my antidote, but it turns out that he’s just my new drug of choice.
Before him, it was heroin.
And then they put me here against my will.
At the time it seemed like my only viable choice.
I preferred stumbling through life numb to it all. But now I’m here, and every sound and every emotion is heightened to a level I never knew existed.
Then somehow, in a moment of weakness it became all about him.
He makes me feel things I never thought possible.
But I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to recover..
Tegan and Asher's story was not was I was expecting. It had a storyline that I have not read before and one that pulled at my heartstrings. It's a raw and gritty account of addiction and its effect on a person and those closest to them.
“My family was almost perfect. The only flaw was me. I didn’t belong. They shouldn’t have to deal with me. They deserved better.”
I was completely sucked in from the first page. The story flips between the past and the present, and I thought it was such a great way to do it and gave the story such an impact. The past gave us a painful and realistic account of Tegan life spiraling out of control, her struggles, her demons, her fears, and the choice she makes to get her next fix. As I read each chapter of her past, my heart was sinking for Tegan.
“In the mirror, I made eye contact with the broken woman staring back. The little girl within me pleaded with her, but her pleads fell on deaf ears”
The present we get to see Tegan’s struggle and challenges during her time in rehab, and her relationship with the counselor Asher. Asher is the person she trusts; the person gives her hope and who believes in her, makes her see and feel new things. Asher has a dark past; he too is a recovering addict, as their friendship deepens, as does their addiction for each other. They are drawn to each other and their connection is palpable.
“For the first time in my life, someone is really seeing me. They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul”
“I’m the fire, he’s the spark”
Reprieve was a not an easy read part were heavy and depressing at times, but that was to be expected due to the subject matter. The issues are real and are the reality of what real people are sadly going through. There is a lot of understanding, and compassion in this book. Nothing was sugar coated, and as I read the book, I hoped that Tegan could start to heal, and overcome her demons and find her way again.
“You need to beat this addiction because you have so much to show the world…and me”
A.E Woodward takes you on an emotional roller coaster you can’t escape from the writing was flawless and once you pick this book up you won’t want to put down until you've finished. I liked the ending, but I can’t help wonder if there will be more. Is Tegan and Asher's story over Mmmm I guess only A.E Woodward knows the answer to that ;-)
A.E. lives in Vacationland with her husband and two children. Between her real job and writing she finds little time to enjoy life's finer things. However in the free time she does manage to steal, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, and reading. A.E. is the author of Kismet and A Series of Imperfections: Imperfectly Perfect, Imperfectly Real, and Imperfectly Bad. Working Girl is her fifth book.

“Do you need anything? Water, saltines, anything?” Concern filled his features once again.
“No.” I smiled. “I’m fine. Just tired.”
He nodded his acknowledgment, and then he walked to the bathroom door while pulling his soaking wet shirt from his back. He tossed it on the chair, every muscle flexing with his movements. I might have been tired, but that didn’t stop me from being stunned into silence as my body flamed to life at the sight of his bare torso. My greedy eyes traveled from one end of his shoulder to the other, drinking in the beauty of his ink. Without glancing at me, he sauntered over to his dresser to pull out a dark-colorer shirt.
“Don’t,” I whispered, feeling my heart stop beating in my chest. It destroyed me a little every time he concealed this part of himself from me. I knew something awful had happened to Damien and that he didn’t want to talk about it, but him hiding it from me hurt beyond any other physical pain I’d ever experienced. His arms paused midair, and he gazed over his shoulder. From his side profile, I saw the instant his body tensed, and his jaw clenched.
“Please…” I swallowed thickly and dug for courage.
“You want me to stay. And I want to lie with you…with nothing between us.” I realized I was being unfair, but I was that desperate. A visible tremor shook through him. It felt as though an eternity had passed before he spoke,
“Don’t touch them.” My heart swelled within its confined space. He was going to trust me.
“I won’t,” I breathed in relief. “I promise.”
“Don’t ever break a promise to me, Raelyn.” He slowly lowered his arms and pivoted to face me.
“So, don’t make one if you can’t keep it.”
“I keep my promises,” I vowed with the utmost sincerity.
“As do I. Always.” His voice

Release Day Launch ~ Heart- Shaped Hack by @Tgarvisgraves Includes Excerpt, The first five Chapters and a Giveaway
Title: Heart -Shaped Hack
Author: Tracey Garvis-Graves
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: 25/8/15
When Kate Watts abandoned her law career to open a food pantry in Northeast Minneapolis, she never dreamed it would be this difficult. Facing the heartbreaking prospect of turning hungry people away, she is grateful for the anonymous donations that begin appearing at the end of each month. Determined to identify and thank her secret benefactor, she launches a plan and catches Ian —a charismatic hacker with a Robin Hood complex—in the act.
Ian intrigues Kate in a way no man ever has. But after learning he’s snooped around on her personal computer, she demands retribution. Impressed with her tolerance and captivated by her spirit, he complies and begins to slowly charm his way past her defenses. Time spent with Ian is never boring, and Kate soon finds herself falling for the mysterious hacker.
But Ian has enemies and they’re growing restless. In the hacking world, exploiting a target’s weakness is paramount, and no price is too high to stop an attack. And when Kate learns exactly how much Ian has paid, she’ll discover just how strong her love is for the man who has hacked his way into her heart.
“Imagine running into you here.”
“This is quite a coincidence.”
“It’s not a coincidence at all. I knew you were following me.”
“You did not.”
“I spotted you hiding behind the plant when I walked into the bank. Plus I could smell your perfume as soon as I stepped out here.”
“Did you”—she used her fingers to make little air quotes—“appropriate money from this bank?” she whispered.
“Of course not. I do all my work from the Batcave. Believe it or not, I actually bank here. I was just signing some papers.”
Kate had never seen a man look so utterly scrumptious while wearing glasses. There was something about the combination of his hair, his scruff, and the semi-rimless designer frames that made him irresistible. “Are the glasses a disguise? Because I totally knew it was you.”
“The glasses are real. I often suffer from eyestrain since I spend so much time on the computer, and I was up late last night, working.”
“They make you look very smart.” She took a moment to imagine how his scruff would feel rubbing against her skin if he were to kiss her.
“I am smart, but I think you mean devastatingly handsome. More so than normal, that is.”
“You’re so humble.”
“Ready?” He walked to the door and held it open for her.
“Follow me.” He looked at her and laughed. “That shouldn’t be a problem for you.”
They took the elevator to the basement, and when the doors opened to the parking garage, Kate followed Ian to a row of cars. He stopped beside one and pulled a set of keys from his pocket.
Ian smiled. “It’s a—”
“1964 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe.”
“’65. But color me impressed.”
“My brother Chad was obsessed with this car. He used to have a poster of it on his bedroom wall. There were only six built between 1964 and 1965.”
“A bit rare indeed.”
The last authentic Shelby had sold at auction for around seven million. Ian’s was obviously a replica, of which there were quite a few, but it was still a very notable vehicle with a price tag that started in the low six figures. “Helena called it an old blue car.”
He grinned, looking contemplative. “Technically, that is correct.”
Kate could not resist running her hand lightly over the Guardsman Blue paint and the white racing stripes on the hood. The Shelby was unmistakably race-car-like in appearance with its aerodynamic design and unique body style. Chad was going to be so jealous. “For someone who values his privacy, isn’t this a bit ostentatious?”
“Rakishly handsome playboy who makes grand philanthropic gestures and drives a flashy car. Any of this ringing a bell?”
“Rakishly handsome playboy?”
“Well, if the Prada loafer fits. Wouldn’t you fly under the radar more easily in, say, a Ford Focus?” she asked.
“A Ford Focus? You want me to tool around town in a Ford Focus? Jesus, would I still have my balls?”
“No, they cut them off when they hand you the keys. Of course you’d still have your balls. What kind of question is that? This conversation has gotten way off track.”
“You mean because we started out talking about my car and now we’re talking about my balls?”
“I believe so.”
“Maybe we should go back to talking about your car.”
“You want to drive it, don’t you?”
“Why would I want to drive your car?”
“Why wouldn’t you want to drive my car? Can you handle a stick shift?”
“Yes, and rather competently I might add.”
“That’s an enormous turn-on. Truly.”
She pretended not to hear him. “This is not a good car for Minnesota winters.”
“Horrible, I agree. My other car has four-wheel drive, but it’s not nearly as fun to operate as this one.” Ian dangled the keys in front of her.
He was right. Kate was dying to drive his car and couldn’t wait to see how it handled. She took the keys, opened the door, and reached over to unlock the passenger side for Ian. They belted up, and she started the car.
“Please note that I’m already making good on my promise, Katie. Because I assure you, driving this car will be the opposite of boring.”

Title: Chasing Cassidy
Author: D. Kelly
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 28, 2015
When Zachary Stafford first set eyes on Cassidy Pope she was being beaten by her father. After witnessing the traumatic event, he made it his mission to befriend her. As the years pass, their relationship evolves and Cassidy not only gives Zack her friendship but her love, as well.
Cassidy spent her childhood being verbally and physically abused. The best part of her life is her friendship with the Stafford twins, Zack and Rylee. Although she tries to put on a brave front, the years of abuse have turned Cassidy into a woman filled with insecurities who doesn’t believe she deserves love. Especially not the kind of love Zack has given her for the last twelve years.
On their wedding day, Cassidy’s insecurities get the best of her and she does the one thing she knows how to do well…she runs. Zack is devastated and when he discovers why Cassidy ran, his devastation becomes fury. Long ago, Zack made Cassidy a promise he fully intends to keep and sets off on a journey to bring her back into his arms where she belongs.
Will Zack and Cassidy get their happily ever after, or will Cassidy’s inner demons keep her from getting the only thing she ever wanted in this world? To be loved.
Chasing Cassidy by D. Kelly was a heartwarming and heartbreaking read, about first love, true love, soul mates, trust, hope, friendship and coping with your past. It also deals with the sensitive subject of physical, mental and emotional abuse.
“Faith makes all thing possible”
What I loved about this book was the support and love that Zachary gave to Cassidy, which started at such a young age. He is just perfect; he’s sweet, romantic, loyal and so protective of Cassidy. He knows her; he sees her fears, and he loves her it's that simple. Zach understands her better than she understands herself at times. All he wants to do is help her fight her demons and make her see they are meant to be together.
“I need hi in my life more that I need oxygen to breathe. Every part of him is intricately woven into my soul”
“You own my heart and soul. I’m your, too forever”
The story flicks between the past and the present, and I like that it is a great way to see how Cassidy and Zach grew from friends to lovers. How he became her whole world, and she became his. But it also makes you see where Cassidy fears and demons come from, and once I saw I could understand her. Cassidy has a good heart and with all that she has been through. The way she was treated by some was shocking and I will say she is a lot more forgiving than I would have been.
With Chasing Cassidy D.Kelly has written a book that will make you swoon, laugh, get emotional, and want to punch a few people. I loved the way it ended perfectly for Cassidy and Zach.
“Love finds us, we don’t find it, and no one can stop what’s meant to be”
I’m so looking for Rylee’s story I loved her, and the sneak preview that D. Kelly gave at the end of the book left me with the certainty that her story is going to be in an interesting read in more way that one. There is a lot more to Zack’s sister than meets the eye. Oh wow! That girl has got some secrets. FYI #TeamPete
“That’s my vixen. Wet as fuck and just aching for me to make you scream. My fingers are the only ones that ever belong in your pussy, Cassidy.” Chuckling, he corrects himself, “Well, mine and yours. You know how much I love watching you finger yourself until you come.”
“Zack.” His name falls easily from my mouth as he continues to finger me. There’s no way anyone could ever make me feel as amazing as he does. He’s right—he’s the only one for me, the only one I could ever love. I know that more and more with every passing second we spend here, but I still have a secret to tell him.
One that will change everything.
As he slowly pulls his fingers out of me, he brings them to his mouth one by one, tasting each one slowly, savoring the taste of me on his tongue. It’s as if he’s enjoying his favorite dessert, the eroticism of the moment is heady.
“Fuck, I’ve missed tasting you on my lips, and I’ve really missed running my tongue along your sweet, tight pussy as you come all over my face.”
Suddenly, he flips me around, holding both wrists in a single hand above my head with my face against the wall. His teeth bite down onto my shoulder but he soothes the pain with a swipe of his tongue and with the touch of his kiss against it.
“Perhaps I should punish you for running. What do you think? What should the punishment be for delayed sexual gratification?” Zack’s punishments are filled with pleasure and just the thought of it makes me want him even more. With my history, there’s no spanking, but the exquisite pleasure he brings me while he has me tied up is incredible.

Title: Be My Temptation
Author: Rachel Brookes
Series The Crawford Brothers 2#
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 29th 2015
Cover Designer: Wicked by Design
Photographer: Perrywinkle Photography
One night connected them.
One decision separated them.
One craving tempted them.
Ashlyn Hart was done with men, or at least those outside of her books. After stupidly falling for the charms of her cheating ex and having her heart broken yet again, she decided to create a new life. One that involved a career change, a new wardrobe, and the possibility of moving abroad. There was just one hurdle: the confident, stubborn and insanely-tempting Josh Crawford.
Josh Crawford hid behind the cliché bachelor lifestyle and a never-ending parade of women. He knew the game and played it well, but the night he tasted perfection four years ago never left him. Back then, he made a spur of the moment decision, one that he has battled with ever since. But beneath the playboy façade was a yearning that wouldn’t disappear. A craving for the only woman who could bring him to his knees: Ashlyn Hart.
Two weeks changes everything.
One night unravels the deepest of desires.
A simple taste unleashes memories that can’t be tamed.
When the girl who dreams of a happily ever after collides with the guy who lives the ultimate cliffhanger, what ending awaits them? Will fear overshadow love? Will the past play hindrance to the future, or will temptation conquer it all?
Well, let me tell you now if you loved Ky the first Crawford Brother then you are going to LOVE his little brother Josh that man is just so lush!! I like Ky but Josh I loved him. Be My Temptation by Rachel Brookes is the second in The Crawford Brothers series and is Josh and Ashlyn story. Two people shared a night one that five years later they have never forgotten; especially Josh Ashlyn was that one Temptation, who he just couldn’t forget.
“After all, no one knew it, Ashlyn didn’t even know it, but Ashlyn Hart was and would always be my forever girl”
From very early on I soon realised that there is more to Josh than meets the eye. He may have seemed like a ladies man, but he was selfless, had a big heart, and sexy alpha with all the right words. Ashlyn Hart was strong, sassy, funny, and independent, but an ex-boyfriend had broken her heart, and that make her cautious with her feelings. I like her, but once or twice I did want to give her a little shake and say just listen to what your heart is telling you.
“There was something different about Josh Crawford's attention. It made me feel like the world was spinning out of control around us but all he focused on was me”
I loved Josh and Ashlyn together and individually. The connection was high between them as was sexual tension. Their friendship/relationship was fun, flirty, sexy, cute, passionate and intense. They had to not let fear and the past stand in their way of what they want, especially Ashlyn as Josh deep down always knew what he wanted.
“Be mine today, tomorrow and forever, because we both know that we are the only ones for each other”
With Be, My Temptation Rachel has written a story about soul mates, true love, second chances, friendships and taking chances. And what you will do for that person who you know took your heart from the very first time you saw them. The one person who no matter what happens you will always want, them be your forever person. I adored this one, which wasn’t a surprise and loved being on Josh and Ashlyn journey.
“A risk is worth taking if it leads to a happily ever after”
Loved the way Rachel writes with such passion, she is such a talented writer. I just can’t help but love her characters and have great empathy for them. She never fails to pull on all my emotions I swooned, laugh, cried, got anxious, and wanted to punch someone while reading this one and those sexy scenes were hot!! Love the epilogue it left me with a grin on my face. It was the perfect ending for Josh and Ashlyn.
"You hold my heart in those pretty little hands of yours Ashy, I can’t survive without you.
It was good to see that all was well in the world of Ky & Eden, love that Rachel give us a different side of Eden. Rachel also introduces two hot sexy characters that will be getting books in the future Ashlyn’s brother Austin and his friend Ben Hunt. Let me just take a moment to talk about Ben Hunt from the snippet that we get of him, it was just enough to leave a lasting impression. I know that I’m going to love him and has alpha ways. I can’t wait for his book.
Fans of Rachel’s will love this one, and I suggest you one click today and meet the gorgeous Josh Crawford. I would also suggest that if you haven’t read Be My December then you should one click and read that one first. If you have not read one of Rachel’s books before, then I suggest you start today, and one click the Breathe series as you won’t be disappointed.

Read the first book in the series Be My December
December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.
The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.
The dream of a ‘happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.
The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.
I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.
I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.
I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.
The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.
A girl who can’t say no.
A guy who craves redemption.
A chance encounter?
It all comes down to this.
Be My December?
Rachel Brookes lives on the east coast of Australia where beaches, kangaroos and surfers roam free. Writing angst ridden love stories with a pinch of craziness, a dash of drama, a cup of romance, a spoonful of sexiness and delicious men to season is what she loves to do. Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can’t remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that’s because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop. When she does step away from her laptop, she spends her time with her amazing family or attached to her kindle catching up with all of her favorite book boyfriends. Books currently available include The Breathe Series – Just Breathe, Breathless and Breathe Again. The standalone, Be My December, will be released August 2014.

When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor—the intriguing man who has haunted her thoughts for a year. A man who led her to breaking every one of her rules for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.

And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.
But when a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?
Read The Prologue and Chapter One Now!
Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
