Summary:

I’d do anything to keep my mother alive.

Anything, including ask Ian Kerr for help. I don’t know much about him, except that he has more money than some small countries. And he’s willing to spend it on me. Just one catch: there’s a string attached, and not just the one I feel pulling me into his arms and his bed. There’s also the plan for revenge he wants my help with.

Every time he says my name, it makes my body shiver and my heart stutter. I know he’s going to wreck me, know there won’t be anything left of me but lust and sensation by the time he’s done with me, but even though I can see the heartbreak coming towards me like a train, ready to crash into me, I can’t get out of the way. I want what he makes me feel. Want what he’s offering.

This may have started out as something to save my mother, but now…now it’s about what he makes me feel. I’m in danger of losing everything that’s important. Worse? Ian’s whispered words and hot caresses are making me believe that’s okay.

Mild Excerpt:

“Bad morning?”

The question comes from a rich deep voice to my right. Some stupid actor, probably. The notes of his voice are perfectly modulated as if he spent years perfecting the tone and depth to reach the biggest audience.

“Yeah, what’s it to you?” I challenge because I’m not in the mood to be chatted up by some wannabe in an off, off Broadway production who wants to try out some new lines on a messenger girl.

My sneering gaze melts right off my face when it lands on the owner of the voice. Dark haired and dark eyed, the stranger gives me a slow smile as I take him in. He’s tall, much taller than my five foot four inch frame. I have to trek upward to see the entire package.

And there’s so much to appreciate from his trim waist to the wide shoulders encased in a gray wool suit coat that fits him so well I wonder if he was sewn into it. Tiny stitches on the lapel mark it’s expensive provenance. A dark tanned neck gives way to a firm chin and lush lips. Bee stung is the description that I’ve heard used to describe the same look on super models. Those lips are about the only soft thing on his face. Those lips and a hollow on the side of his face that appears when those plush lips curve upward. The divot is too shallow and wide to be termed a dimple, but it’s just as devastating.

One hand is stuck in a pocket and his jacket is pushed behind the hand to reveal a flat stomach. No desk paunch on this guy. There’s an intense sexual aura about him. The nonchalant stance, the dark gaze, the lush lips are all an invitation to rip the buttons of his snowy white shirt apart and see exactly what lies underneath all of those fabrics.

I stick a thumb under my jaw under the guise of giving my chin a scratch just to make sure my mouth is closed. This guy? He can practice lines with me all he wants.

Extra Hot Excerpt:

“What makes you think I’ll be done with you?” He says and he moves my hands upward until they meet in an arch above my head and he can grip my wrists in one big fist. Free, his left hand slides down my arm, leaving a trail of goose bumps in his wake. His mouth is on my chin, my jaw, and then my neck. He’s tasting me, pressing the flat of his tongue against my racing pulse. “Maybe I’ll never be done with you and your solid gold pussy.” At the last word, he closes his mouth over that pulse point and sucks hard. The only thing holding me up is his hand around my wrist. He pumps his thigh against me and an involuntary moan escapes my lips.

“I don’t care,” I manage to choke out this obvious lie because my body cares a lot. “I’m not a toy. You don’t get to put me in Barbie’s expensive town home and play with me until you’re bored. I’m a fucking real person and my mom’s a real person. And we don’t need this shit right now.”

He doesn’t stop my diatribe but he doesn’t lift his mouth from my skin either. He’s sucking hard at the spot where my neck curves into my shoulder and his hand is under my ass, moving me backward and forward along his thigh. His other hand has worked its way under my shirt and is palming my breast, a large thumb rubbing my nipple. I realize my hands are free and that I’ve been holding them above my head while he rubs all over me. When I drop my hands to his shoulders I find I can’t push him anyway. Instead, I’m using his shoulders as leverage to grind down on his thigh.

The nerve endings of my sex are hyper sensitized and I swear I can feel every thread of his superfine wool pants. His leg moves, a tiny hitch, but it interrupts the rhythm and removes the pressure. “Don’t you stop,” I threaten him, all the heat in my tone has turned from anger to throaty desire.

“Shh, bunny, I got you.” He lifts me completely and spins me around. I have no option but to wrap my legs around him. A few quick steps and we’re in another bedroom with one giant bed and nothing much else. He tumbles me back onto the bed and then lowers himself on top of me, and there’s nothing in my field of vision but the hard planes of his face and the ruddy flush of desire on the high points of his cheekbones. He looks fierce and hungry.

Before I can capture another thought, his mouth is on mine and his hand is pushing aside the lace of my soaked panties. I’m moaning from both the feel of his thick tongue inside of my mouth and the sensation of one and then two of his fingers thrusting inside me. Sucking hard on his tongue, I lift my hips to grind against his hand.

His free hand spears my hair and tugs my head back as if he can’t get his tongue deep enough inside me. He tastes of spearmint and earthiness, of true desire. My whole body is alive and it’s straining toward him, toward completion. I brace my feet against the mattress, seeking more pressure. Breaking away from his mouth, I pant, “Harder. Fuck me harder with your fingers.”

I give him a quick once over. His suit is ruined. He never took even his coat off when he finger fucked me and I’m guessing the fragile wool wasn’t meant to be worn during any intense physical encounters. There are creases in the arms and shoulders were I clutched him and was that a … stain on his thigh. I ducked my head to hide my embarrassment. “You owe me a lot of explanations.”

“I’ll be here when you’re done. Come back and we’ll talk.”

I give him an absent nod but it’s not sufficient of a response for him. He strides over and tips my head back. “I’m having this suit bronzed, you know.”

My cheeks heat because I know he’s referring to the mark in the wool made from my arousal. He leans down and gives me a hard kiss.

“Come back here tonight.” It’s a demand and not a question.

I Am The Weapon (The Unknown Assassin Book One) by Allen Zadoff

I Am The Weapon
Allen Zadoff

cover46773-mediumLittle, Brown Books for Young Readers

Previously published under the title Boy Nobody

Synopsis:

They needed the perfect assassin.

Boy Nobody is the perennial new kid in school, the one few notice and nobody thinks much about. He shows up in a new high school in a new town under a new name, makes a few friends, and doesn’t stay long. Just long enough for someone in his new friend’s family to die-of “natural causes.” Mission accomplished, Boy Nobody disappears, moving on to the next target.

But when he’s assigned to the mayor of New York City, things change. The daughter is unlike anyone he has encountered before; the mayor reminds him of his father. And when memories and questions surface, his handlers at The Program are watching. Because somewhere deep inside, Boy Nobody is somebody: the kid he once was; the teen who wants normal things, like a real home and parents; a young man who wants out. And who just might want those things badly enough to sabotage The Program’s mission.

In this action-packed series debut, author Allen Zadoff pens a page-turning thriller that is as thought-provoking as it is gripping, introducing an utterly original and unforgettable antihero.

 

My Review:

Action-packed thriller.. the entire book was wonderful but once I reached the half way mark I didn’t stop reading, not even to take a quick break, until I was completely finished. I swear I could not read the pages fast enough.

Let me not forget to mention that I quite enjoyed the writing style. Straight forward and to the point. It made it to where the reader was able to stay totally engrossed without becoming bored and distracted.

Also, this book is really good at showing us how the choices, even the smallest, has an impact on our lives. How everything can change in the blink of a moment. It’s been very interesting and entertaining to say the least, watching each choice the MC makes and how the plot unfolds because of those choices.

I definitely recommend this book to pretty much anyone who just enjoys a good read because to be perfectly honest when I first read the blurb I thought to myself well this really isn’t my typical choice but I am very glad that I decided to read it anyway. Very enjoyable read in my personal opinion.

4 very solid stars.

Excerpt: Why do you care?

“Cold?” A deep, cocky voice greets me. I look up to see Asher leaning against a black Aston Martin DB9, my dream car. Damn if he isn’t looking every bit as delicious as he normally does. I really need to get my head examined. My lips form a tight line. “Why do you care?” It comes out harsher than I meant it too. Why does this guy get under my skin? The unnerving guy holds his stance, his scrutiny still focused on me. I try to ignore the burning sensation his gaze causes as it settles into my skin. I’m definitely not cold anymore. Asher breaks the awkward silence after a few moments. “Do I make you anxious, Eve?” “No.” I shiver but for a different reason now. My name sounds like a prayer on his lips. Nodding his head in understanding, he prowls over to me like a predator who has its prey in their trap. “You sure?” he whispers. Holding my position, I lift my chin and attempt to show him he doesn’t affect me. “Yes.” Asher stops in front of me, bends down and forces me to look him in the eye. My eyelids flutter just the tiniest bit at his body’s nearness to mine. Damn traitorous body. The corners of his mouth lift smugly as he moves closer. So close I can feel his minty warm breath on my lips. Chuckling quietly, he takes off his jacket and my heart begins doing back flips. His shoulders are really broad. Slowly, he leans forward, wrapping his leather coat over my shoulders, engulfing me with warmth and his intoxicating scent.

 
An Interview With The Revelation Cast: Eve, Asher, and Gage!

In my opinion, it’s always fun to get to know your favorite book characters on a more personal level. Recently, I sat down with some of my main characters from Revelation over coffee, while getting to know Eve, Asher and Gage better. Hope you enjoy it!

Q: Okay guys let’s start off with an easy one. If you could be an animal, what would it
be?

Asher: “This is an easy one for me, a dragon.” (Smirks sexily)
Eve: “I think, a giraffe. They have really pretty long necks and lovely eye lashes.”
Gage: “A giraffe? Any animal in the world, love, and you pick a giraffe?”
Asher: “Giraffes are beautiful animals, good pick, siren.” (Squeezes Eve’s hand)
Gage: (Sighs deeply) “A lion.”

Q: Give me one word that sums up your Revelation character?

Asher: “Intense.”
Eve: “Unsure.”
Gage: “Wise.”

Q: Eve, you and Asher have intense chemistry, but you also have amazing chemistry
with Gage. Can you talk about that dynamic?

Eve: “Asher and I definitely have a powerful relationship. On the one hand, he’s very intense with me, but at the same time, he treats me with nothing but love, adoration and awe. Gage always has me guessing, which keeps me on edge. I’m never really sure where I stand with him which is what makes our relationship rocky, but magnetic. It also helps that both boys are easy on the eyes.” (Giggles)

Q: Asher can you describe Eve for me?

Asher: “There’s just something beautiful about her. Eve is very strong. She’s not
the damsel in distress type of girl. It’s actually kind of weird. Before we met, I
expected her to be a wreck, but she’s tough. At the same time, there is softness to
Eve when she lets her guard down and that draws you in. Plus she’s stunning, I
mean look at her.” (Side-glances to Eve and locks eyes for a moment)

Q: Gage, we’re still getting to know you, and I understand over the course of the
Series, we’ll get to know more. Is there anything you can tell us about your character that we have not learned yet in Revelation?

Gage: “I think I’m misunderstood. I don’t over complicate things. I happen to
be very deep, and unlike Asher, who is reactive, I tend to be more strategic and
thoughtful when I approach situations. Over the course of the series, I think you’ll
start to learn more about why I am, the way I am, and why I choose to do the
things I do.”

Q: Eve you’re the vessel in which readers get to experience the story, through your
eyes. What is the one thing you hope the reader takes away from it?

Eve: “I hope that readers understand that this story is truly one of self-discovery,
love and sacrifice. Not just for my character, but every character who
makes up this story.”

The Girl Who Never Was “Book Extra”, The Legend of Cottingley

GirlWhoNeverWas-HorizontalBadge-2

Cottingley

In the early twentieth century, two little girls caused a massive media event when they claimed to have taken photographs of faeries near the brook in their backyard in Cottingley, England. The photographs caught the imagination of the country, and celebrities like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of Sherlock Holmes, descended upon the area, hoping to spy faeries themselves.

Eventually, the little girls admitted it had all been a hoax, and that they had set up the photographs using paper cutouts of faeries from a catalog.

Good thing, too, because all the attention was really cramping the style of the faeries who liked to pop over to Cottingley for a visit.

Do you think there is any truth in the legends? What mythological creatures do you think might be hiding out there? Unicorns? Bigfoot? The Loch Ness Monsteottingley

The Girl Who Never Was by Skylar Dorset Book Trailer Reveal & More!

GirlWhoNeverWas-HorizontalBadge-2

Hi Everyone, Today I’ve got some really cool stuff to share with you. Some background info on the Unseelie Court and Wizards. I am also sharing a link for the first 5 chapters of The Girl Who Never Was as well as the book trailer reveal!!

*The Unseelie Court*

In Scottish folklore, the Unseelie Court was the “evil” court set up in opposition to the Seelie Court. I really liked the idea of there being no such clear dichotomy any longer: Both courts had become corrupted and dangerous to the Otherworld. Because the Seelie Court was traditionally considered the court of light, I placed it in bright sunlight. By contrast, the Unseelie Court was traditionally considered the court of darkness, so I placed it underground, accessible to our world by going below. This is not to imply that the Seelie Court is accessible by going above, but I wanted to keep the dichotomy between the two. In my head, they almost exist on the same sheet of paper, but one is on top and one is on the bottom. The Seelie Court rules the Otherworld and its tendrils are everywhere. I wanted the Unseelie Court to be its own little fiefdom within that kingdom, tolerated by the Seelie Court only because the Unseelies had assembled enough power of their own to resist them. The Unseelies do not mind being creatures of the darkness, and they are happy to stay in their self-contained world. Their border control measures are intense, and they seldom interact with the rest of the Otherworld. The Seelie Court would tell you this is because they do not wish the Unseelies to have access to the Otherworld, but the Unseelie Court has no desire to branch out into the rest of the Otherworld. They have no interest in political power, they only seek to be left alone to their dark magic. The Unseelies will grant asylum on occasion to those who need it. Because it is the only independent place in the Otherworld, it is the only place to hide from Seelies. Also, because it is so inaccessible, all sorts of amazing legends have grown up about it in the Otherworld. Otherworld creatures are taught that everyone and everything could be living in the Unseelie Court, every terrifying creature that could be imagined, because none of the Otherworld creatures really know what happens there.

*Wizards*

In the days when the borders between the Thisworld and the Otherworld were open, wizards (the female counterparts were known as witches) were quite common and it was considered a well-respected calling. It was favored, in the beginning, by families that already had great wealth, because there was little money to be made off of it. Magic, however, was a dangerous thing to practice, exhausting and potentially deadly if abused, so it was mostly favored for second sons as an alternative to the clergy. Witches and wizards attended universities of magic in order to learn their craft. Each developed talents for a particular type of magic that acted as their specialty. They tended to be naturally self-confident and arrogant, as belief and intent were two necessary ingredients to magic, which resulted in many clashes and feuds. Every witch and wizard consider themselves to be the best, and every other witch and wizard to be a pretender to their throne. Magical alliances were frequently fraught with tensions between overbearing personalities, and, as such, wizards and witches tended to be loners when it came to each other, even if some did develop friendships outside of the field. (William Blaxton had a reputation for being an especially gregarious wizard when it came to interspecies relationships, which was how he ended up forging the New World path.) When magic began to fall out of favor in the onslaught of science, it began to be seen as a haven for eccentrics. Most of the last of the wizards and witches were adventurous souls, drawn to the unpredictability of the practice of magic, and many of them ended up in the New World, which they thought at the time might be more accepting of the idea of the continued existence of everyday magic. Will Blaxton settled Boston. His fellow wizard Roger Williams settled Rhode Island, slightly farther south, together with help from their fellow witch Anne Hutchinson. Meanwhile, another wizard, self-styled Lord Timothy Dexter, settled north of Boston in Newburyport. In the early days, the witches and wizards thrived and were well-respected members of the community, but eventually they began to clash more and more with the humans who arrived and who were not interested in continuing on the practice of magic. Most of the witches and wizards went underground and rewrote the history books to take the power of their magic out of the words. The Salem Witch Trials were an effort to ferret out all of the remaining magic in the New World, but it was sadly entirely ineffective and managed merely to kill a great many innocent people, as the witches and wizards had already gone into hiding by that time.
