SPOILERS FOR FULL TILT….

Reeling from her loss, Kacey Dawson is grieving and heartbroken, her addictive demons hauling her back into the alcohol-soaked abyss she worked so hard to crawl out of. Kacey teeters on the edge of oblivion, and must fight her way through the pain, to build a new life for herself with her music, and somehow fulfill the promise she made to Jonah…one she feels is impossible to keep.

Theo Fletcher has a secret burning in his heart, one that he holds close, while he struggles to keep strong for his family that is falling apart. His mother’s health is fragile and his father’s disapproval is breaking him down. Theo is afraid if he follows his heart, he’ll fail, and not just himself, but his brother who believed in him when no one else did.

Drawn together by their pain, Theo and Kacey slowly build a friendship, re-forge old ties, help each other to heal, and give one another the courage to reach for their dreams. Together, from the depths of grief and guilt, they learn to laugh again, to trust again, and quite possibly find something beautiful and lasting amid the shattered pieces of their broken hearts.

Review – You NEED to read book 1  before attempting to read this book. Another full on emotional story that has you gripped from start to finish especially for the decisions the characters have to face in this story. Learning to live and love can be brutal but also beautiful this duo of books teaches you. I really recommend you set time aside to pick up both of these books you will not be disappointed

“I would love you forever, if I only had the chance…”

Kacey Dawson has always lived life on the edge–impulsively, sometimes recklessly. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch…

Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he’s vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.

Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.

Full Tilt is a story about what it means to love with your whole heart, to sacrifice, to experience terrible grief and soaring joy. To live life with all its beauty, and all its pain, and in the end to be able to smile through tears and know you wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Review – Wow i was not expecting that from this brand new author to me. This review i not going to go into much detail as you need to experience this story raw to get its full powerful feel. And when i say feel i mean it gives you all the feels, a whole rainbow of different emotions ran through me while reading this book. A journey of immense proportions happens to the two main characters in this story and trust me you will love getting swept away with them on it

Check out what reviewers are saying about this amazing new release!
“Alora Kate has a very talented writing style, that is not only emotionally captivating, but highly realistic with a dark edge. I couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough trying to find out Ashton’s haunting story.” ~ Jennifer, The Power of Three Readers
“Absolutely hands down the best book I’ve read in a long time. Alora Kate blew me away with this heartfelt story of survival.” ~ Marnie Warren
“When I was done reading it, I sat and cried my eyes out. It hit home on many levels for me. The first book that made me feel like this was Danielle Steele’s Malice. Both have incredible characters who show you their inner workings and how to grow and change the course of your life for the better. This is a truly incredible book, and Alora’s best book to date.” ~ Shani, The Chronicles of an Abibliophobiac
Synopsis:
Lincoln: Catching sight of my neighbor’s ass in the hallway the day I moved in more than piqued my interest. It’s not just the body that has my attention. She’s mysterious, hiding behind sunglasses that cover most of her face. I ask her name and try to get her to talk on the rare occasions I see her in the hallway, but every time she ignores me and turns away. I need to know more about this woman, I can’t get her out of my head. Do I keep trying? Do I keep asking her name?
Ashton: I’m barely holding on. I’m always on the edge, even after all these years. I live every day the same and I can’t change who I am no matter how much I try. My new neighbor won’t give up asking my name and trying to make conversation with me. If he knew me he wouldn’t keep trying. I’m a lost cause.

Excerpt:

I sucked in a breath. “Are you trying to kill me?”
“A little dramatic don’t you think, Ashton.” She stood up and smoothed out her clothes.
Suzanne was tall, skinny, and blonde and sometimes she wore glasses. Other than that, I don’t pay attention to people or the unique details they all have. They all blend into categories, and I can’t see past that. They are short or tall, fat or skinny, and the only other thing I notice is usually their hair color. And I guess glasses. Sometimes those stick out to me.
My world is boring.
Bland.
Dull and lifeless.   
Sometimes the beating of my heart is the only thing that reminds me that I’m alive.
“I’m scared, Suzanne.”
I’m always so fucking scared.
“Anxiety can do that to you.”

BLURB


 


Milly Evans has been PA to the head of Sparrow Towers for over eight years. And Milly loves her job. Her boss is the most affectionate and compassionate man she’s ever known. Geoffrey Sparrow’s high profile status and company prestige never changed the old man, and with his and Milly’s love for his respected company, their relationship gave them both something to cherish in the workplace and build an even better future for themselves and all Sparrow’s employees.

 

That is until her boss is brutally murdered and Milly witnesses the whole horrifying ordeal.
And then everything changes.
Warne Industries has been trying to snatch Sparrow Towers for months, their snide underhand ways not once swaying her much loved boss.
And now they are quick to move in and take what they always wanted – Milly included.
Yet, one of the CEOs of Warne Industries who had been hiding behind the anonymity of his partner turns out to be the best friend Milly had left behind years ago, Rik Bane. However, everything she used to love about Rik is gone, and in his place is an arrogant and cruel man, a man Milly no longer recognises.
His new ways, his coldness and the way he sneers down his nose at Milly give her many reasons to flee her new employers. Yet, driven by her love for Geoffrey and his resolve to create a traditional company, Milly is determined to stay and make sure his lifetime’s commitment isn’t torn to shreds and fed to the lions’ piece by piece.
Now Milly’s past, her secrets and the lies she had told to protect herself and everyone around her is suddenly about to blow wide open.
But when it surfaces that Milly is a witness to her boss’ murder, she’s soon running for her life, and the only man that can help her stay alive is Rik.
Review – I love a good romantic thriller, and when the characters have a connection that sizzles and has so much past it makes it all the more interesting. I was not sure where the story was going but it certainly kept me on my toes,and had plenty of suspense as well as some seriously sexy moments. I am no interested to see where this series goes, as this is book 1 in a new series for D H Sidebottom.

EXCERPT

She dropped heavily onto the inflatable chair and I bit
my lip to stop the loud laugh when she bounced off to the side and collided
with the wall, her forehead thudding on the thin tin keeping the shack
together.
“Fuck!” She giggled, clasping at her brow. Then came the
silly grunt I had so fucking missed. Her bright eyes found mine and we were
both laughing so hard that she held onto her side to stop the cramp.
“There’s a fucking YouTube moment,” she howled as tears
streamed down her face. There was only Esther Dean that could have me aching
with sadness one moment, and in the next, rolling around with laughter.
“Jesus bloody Christ,” I snorted. “I’ve changed my mind;
you’ll get my team killed!”
Taking a deep breath and wiping her tears, she righted
the chair and gingerly sat down, her giggle still making me chuckle. “Oh dear,”
she sniffed, attempting to curb her laughter. “Right, sorry.”
Shaking my head, I grinned at her. “Fuck, you’re so
beautiful.”
Any hilarity that was left evaporated so quickly the air clawed
at my throat. She gazed at me, her eyes soft and sparkling as my words hung
heavy between us.
“At least think about it,” I snapped, shifting quickly to
prevent the need to grab her by her throat and kiss her until we both got lost
in one another.
I didn’t wait for her reply, and I jolted when the
caravan door slammed shut behind me.

 

Fuck!

Branna – L.A. Casey

Branna Book Cover Branna
Slater Brother #4.5
L.A. Casey
15th January 2017

Branna Murphy is a survivor, a wife, a friend, a sister, and a soon-to-be-mother. She doesn’t have time to linger on anything, especially on a silly argument about how many children she will bear.

Ryder Slater is a hardass, a husband, a friend, a brother, and a soon-to-be-father. Unlike his wife, he has nothing but time to argue his case about how many children they will have… until that time is threatened to be taken away from him.

A surprise honeymoon deep in a beautiful forest for a secluded getaway was supposed to be fun, romantic and peaceful – until the storm of the century hits and both Branna and Ryder face a new enemy that has means to harm their family.

Mother nature.

Branna is consumed by her love for Ryder, and will fight to the end to keep her family safe. Branna treasures Ryder, and what Branna treasures, Branna defends.

Review – I adore this series and even after all the other books the author still knows how to surprise us with what happens to everyone involved with the Slater’s. There is plenty of romance and danger and it is always great to see the strong willed women  if this series come up against the hard as nails but very protective of their women Slater boys. Though boys is the wrong word when it comes to Ryder, he is all man and very alpha 🙂 A great short story to advance us with the characters of this fabulous series
