Love has never been Cheryl Brigham’s plan. She’s not cut out for second dates, relationships, or happily ever afters.

Excerpt: 

“I met a cute guy,” Cheryl blurted out.

“Already? That was quick.”

“It’s a gift. What can I say?” Cheryl replied as she unzipped her backpack.

“You can start with the details.”

“Well, it’s kind of your fault.” Sera rolled her eyes, the disbelief at Cheryl’s words evident. “Had you not haphazardly shoved that evil book in my backpack, it never would have accosted him as I walked by, and then I never would have shared a cab with him to my apartment.”

As Cheryl spoke, she unpacked some of her stuff, placing clothes in the tiny chest of drawers near the bed.

“Aren’t you tired as all get out?”

“Yeah, I am. But it’s kind of hard to sleep right now. I’m buzzing with excitement.”

“I’d be worried that you were sick if you didn’t buzz with excitement while you were in Paris.”

“Yeah, but….”

“But what?”

“It’s kind of lonely.”

“You hate people.” Cheryl glared at her computer screen. “Well, except me.”

Cheryl shrugged. “I don’t know. I guess it’s kind of the reality of you and Destin getting engaged. Maybe it’s time for me to grow up.” Cheryl fiddled with the necklace she wore, three stones in varying shades of green, while on the computer Sera played with her own, though hers was blue.

“Stop it.” The edge in Sera’s tone caught Cheryl off guard. “You’re playing with your necklace.”

“See, that just proves how immature I am.”

“Shut up. I’m playing with mine too. I always do. But you wouldn’t have that necklace if you hadn’t done the most amazing, unselfish, mature thing anyone could ever do.”

“Aww, if my tear ducts worked, I’d cry.”
Sera laughed. “Your tear ducts work just fine. You just don’t let yourself feel anything. Which is fine, because that’s just you, and I love you for that. But don’t ever convince yourself that you’re not mature.”

“Okay, maybe mature wasn’t the right word.”

“Nope. Try again.”

Cheryl put her now-empty suitcase into the closet. “Maybe I hitched my wagon to the wrong star, and I’m chasing the wrong dreams. Maybe art isn’t what I’m supposed to do.”

“You are definitely jet-lagged because I’ve never heard you say such things. Please go to sleep and call me when my best friend has returned and kicked this insecure little brat to the curb.”

Two years with my knight in rusted armor

I, Makenzie Mayfair am leaving my husband.

This is my chance to begin again, to rip out my backbone and yell, “I’ve found it.” It may take time, it may take new friends, a job and even a jerk of a boss who is annoyingly handsome, but I will get there.

Excerpt: 

“You single?” Hudson asked suddenly.
My cheeks pinked. “Y-yes, actually, no, ah, it’s complicated.” I sighed and noticed everyone was waiting for an answer. “All I’m willing to say is that I left my husband on Friday.”
Hudson whistled and opened his mouth to presumably ask more, but Angelia smacked him in the back of the head. “No questions.” She turned to me and added, “Just putting this out there, all men suck. If you want to turn the other way and start looking at women”—she pointed to herself—“I get first dibs at your new sexual experience.”
A quick flash of me licking a fish popped into my head. It was my turn to choke and cough on my food.
“Um… I’ll think about it.”
She threw her head back and laughed. “Joking. Not about me being gay, but I think we’d be better off as friends than lovers.”
“I have a feeling she’ll always be a penis lover, Ang,” Ryan piped up and grinned, throwing a wink my way. “I’m good for a rebound.”
My head jerked back. Had I been too long out of the dating game? I didn’t know it was normal for men to state their intentions straightaway.
“Not all men are like these two,” Abby said as she threw a carrot at Ryan. “They’re just sex crazed.”
Dara snorted, then laughed. “You should have seen your face though.”
Grinning, I shook my head and went back to my food. I had a feeling I was going to enjoy lunch each day with my new colleagues. Even if they had bet on when I would leave.

About the Author: 


I was born in Brisbane Australia, my step-dad was in the army which caused us to move around a lot. We finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. I am the youngest of four children and I can say that I was spoilt a bit. I drove my mum crazy when I refused to eat meat at a young age.

Now I live with my husband and two children, and I find myself regretting all the troubles I put my parents through because my monsters are just as picky as I was.

I started writing in 2013 and self-published the first of the Hawks MC Club series, Holding Out. The next to follow was something different, I wrote Senseless Attraction, a YA novel. Soon, I was back to the Hawks series with number two, Climbing Out. I have more to write in the series, but there will be also be more novels in the humorous erotica genre, like Left to Chance.

#Review - F*ck Club: Riley by Shiloh Walker



Shiloh Walker never fails to amaze me with her fantastic story lines. By the title you know your in for a hot read but there is oh so much more going on in this story. F*ck Club: Riley has an intense story line with romance, drama, some steaming hot scenes, and suspense. 

 Riley Steele has not had an easy life. He and his siblings lost their parents at an early age. Riley would do anything and I do mean anything to make sure that his siblings are safe and taken care of. How could you not completely fall for this guy that has all the makings of one of the good guys. He took on a profession that may not be completely legal but he has done everything to make sure that his clients and family are safe, protected, and certainly well taken care. 

Brianna Sharpe is one of those characters that touched my heart from the beginning. She was Riley's first love. Since they broke up she has not had the best luck with men. Honestly she has horrible experiences. When things get REALLY bad she reaches out to Riley. 

Riley has always loved Bree and will do anything to help keep her and her son safe. He doesn't hesitate to run to her side when she calls. He steps up and offers a place for them to stay and a chance to be safe and secure for a while.

Living together and spending more time together they quickly find their attraction is still incredibly strong. There is no doubt that these two still have deep feelings for each other and their passion together is sizzling hot. They have so many obstacles to get through if they are going to get a second chance at love.

I really liked both Riley and Bree. Bree's son has seen things no little one should have to see ever. Ms. Walker has done a great job with the story line. She captured my attention quickly and kept me engrossed through the whole book. I loved Riley's family. I can't wait to see what Shiloh Walker has in store for Con in the next book. I'm really excited for it's release. Of course I'm always excited for a new release by Shiloh Walker. 

If you are a Shiloh Walker fan, like me, this is a MUST READ and must read NOW. If you enjoy an incredible story with some extremely hot scenes then I highly recommend this one. 

I was given the opportunity to read this stupendous story and it is my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.

About the Author: 

A high school English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay's the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay's goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she's done her job.

Lindsay's hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

The Heavenly Chronicles
By Jessie Wrights
Blurb:

Artan never knew what to expect when he was called to service on Earth, but the sight of his future charge made him think this one wouldn’t be so bad, until he gets shot during his first meeting with Elizabeth Savante. Turns out she already has a protector, and he is none too pleased to find that Heaven has taken an interest in his partner.

Khris thought he was safe, his work with Liz kept him constantly moving and out of Heaven’s cross hairs. That is until an angel shows up, and tells him that a demon is after Liz. And to make matters worse Liz is completely psyched about it. Now he has a choice, he can stay and help protect the best thing that ever happened to him, or he can run before Heaven finds out what and where he is.
