I had life all figured out.


Married with a baby on the way I stupidly believed that things were perfect.


But then the good guy I fell in love with turned out to not be as good as I thought.


I was left alone to pick up the pieces of my life and provide for my daughter.


And then I met him.


Hayes.


The bad boy that just might not be so bad.

 


Three years after her husband walked out on her Arden James is struggling to make ends meet as a single mom. Despite it all, she knows she’s better off with her ex out of the picture, and so is her daughter.

Josh Hayes—player, jokester, and very naughty boy—is the guitar player for the band Willow Creek. He’s used to living the fast life, but suddenly it doesn’t appeal to him anymore, and he has his sights set on the fiery Arden.

Despite their undeniable chemistry, Arden isn’t sure she wants to invite a man into her life that has never been in a committed relationship before. But Hayes is determined to prove to her that there’s more to him than meets the eye. He just needs Arden to take a chance.

Zeke

One rule, only one rule women need to follow when they’re with me.

Don’t ask for more.

This rule is in place for a reason, you won’t get more of what’s not there to give.

Bexley

He is striking, and he’s all man. He is also the devil, or so I believe him to be. I gave him my heart, not realizing I was doing so. He likes to break me down, so I’m a shell of the person I once was. He’s chipping away at me, bit by bit. Though I’m not as weak as he thinks, and when I can’t handle it anymore, I will come back swinging.

Review – Never read anything from this author until now. But i am glad i did. The cover and blurb certainly pulled me into the book. When i was reading it at the start of the story it jumped around a little bit, but once i got on top of who was who and where we where time wise i was soon not putting this book down. Bexley our female lead is a strong woman and full of surprises. Zeke he was harder to fall for he was an alpha douche but then something happens part way through the story where my heart began to thaw for him. As the title Degrade suggests there are moments of degrading physical and emotional through the story but it is there for a reason to complete the story, but if you cannot read books with this theme in then you have been warned. Overall i really liked this author and their writing style and this story

Excerpt
I’m an idiot, I know this. I just can’t help myself. When it comes to him, I do as he says, do as he pleases. Even if it’s against everything, I believe in. He has a hold on me, which no other person has ever held. I don’t believe he loves me, but I love him. So that has to count for something? Right? My love is big enough. I believe it can hold onto both of us and wrap us up in a vice grip. See, I did tell you, I’m an idiot.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.

Second Chance – Allyson Sinclair

Second Chance
by Allyson Sinclair
Contemporary Romance
 
 
 
 
Anabella Stewart had the perfect marriage, children and a husband who loved her unconditionally or so she thought. She’d built her life around them for ten years until she was blindsided with the truth of who her husband really was, and everything she held dear and believed in evaporated in an instant.
 
Anabella’s heart filled with darkness and the only glimmer of light is the love she holds for her two young daughters. She’s content in her ‘no-one can hurt me life’, it’s controlled, she isolates herself, studies, goes to work and just keeps breathing.
 
A freak accident helps Anabella find her way out of the darkness when she meets Nikolas Turner. After the death of his parents he has a decision to make; return home to England or take over the reins of the family company.
 
As fate, would have it Anabella crashes into Nikolas’ life. She’s everything he thought he didn’t want from a relationship; a single mother who’d depend on him for comfort and support he didn’t know he could give. Being with her means not only loving her but also becoming a father figure to her children.
 
When life offers you a second chance, even when you don’t think you need one, you hold on tight with everything you have.
Review – This is a adult romance book, by that i do not mean it is full out dirty, but it does have some very sexy scenes in it. I mean it is for grown ups who have loved and lost and are taking that very daunting step into a new romance and second chances at life. This is a debut novel from a new author and it is a very, very good debut novel. There is plenty of depth to the characters, some suspense concerning an event in the book and the revelation, and some very funny and touching moments. The female lead will be connectable to all that read the story, she is vulnerable but strong and smart. The men in the book are equally as connectable to the reader. The characters all go on a journey and the reader gets swept along with them. I will be keeping a close eye on Allyson Sinclair and her future work as this lady has great promise in her writing that i will be looking to see what her next release will bring us 🙂

“Feel like going on an adventure with me?”
Being with you is already an adventure.
“Sure.”
“Have you ever been to D’Aguilar National Park?”
“No, I don’t actually go outdoors that much.”
“There’s a five-kilometre hiking track with an incredible view. I thought we could hike together?”
Oh my God, he doesn’t know how clumsy I am! Like, Bella from ‘Twilight’ clumsy.
“Nikolas, that sounds great, but I’m not always good on my feet. Maybe we should do something less dangerous?”
He laughs and raises an eyebrow. “Do you think I would allow any harm to come to you?”
“Ha! You don’t know how bad my version of clumsy is. On Claire’s cross country day, I rolled my ankle on the school oval and that was flat!” I laugh at my own clumsiness.
He reaches over the console for my hand and I let him take it, he raises it to his lips and kisses my knuckles. “I promise I’ll protect you, even from yourself.” He takes his eyes off the road for a moment to look at me. “Trust me, Anabella.”
He has no idea how hard those two words are for me.

Code Of Honour – Missy Johnson

Code Of Honour Book Cover Code Of Honour
Spontagio Family #1
Missy Johnson
25th August 2015

In a series debut for fans of Tracy Wolff and Sylvia Day, New York Times bestselling author Missy Johnson asks a burning question: What happens when love is undeniable—and taboo?

Pietro Gustovi is loyal, polished, and hard as stone, the kind of guy women want and men respect. At twenty-three, he’s survived tragedies that would break men twice his age. And he owes it all to his father’s closest friend, Giovanni Spontagio, who took him in as an orphaned teenager. Pietro would give his life for Giovanni . . . but his heart belongs to Giovanni’s daughter.

Raised in Chicago under the spotlight of power and privilege, Lucy Spontiago feels most alive on stage. Determined to become a prima ballerina, she escapes her father’s protective gaze long enough to audition for the ballet in New York City. Soon, however, Lucy realizes that she is not alone. Pietro is watching her back. And though he’s like a brother to her, Lucy cannot deny the thrill she feels knowing his eyes are on her.

Pietro could never betray his mentor by sleeping with his only child. But Lucy follows her passions, no matter how forbidden. Soon their nights are consumed by explosive, red-hot temptation—a dance that will expose shocking secrets and burn everything else to the ground.

Review – An interesting story that i enjoyed reading it was just i could not connect with the characters as much as i hoped i would. Also i found the relationship between Lucy and Pietro a bit tenuous and though i enjoyed their relationship together i did not like how it began it did not feel like a great start for them together. I am a huge Missy Johnson fan an will forever read her work and as this is the first book in a series i would be interested to see where the stories lead in the series.
