Reclaiming the Sand (Reclaiming the Sand #1) by A. Meredith Walters

Image
Available on Goodreads
Synopsis:
Bully and victim.
Tormenter and tormented.
Villain and hero.

Ellie McCallum was a bully. No connection to anyone or anything. A sad and lonely existence for a young woman who had come to expect nothing more for herself. Her only happiness coming from making others miserable.

Particularly Freaky Flynn.

Flynn Hendrick lived a life completely disconnected even as he struggled to become something more than that boy with Asperger's. He was taunted and teased, bearing the brunt of systematic and calculated cruelty, ultimately culminating in a catastrophic turn of events that brought Ellie and Flynn’s worlds crashing down.

But then Flynn and Ellie grew up.

And moved on.

Until years later when their paths unexpectedly cross again and the bully and the freak are face to face once more.

When labels come to define you, finding yourself feels impossible. Particularly for two people disconnected from the world who inexplicably find a connection in each other.

And ou…

Synopsis:

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.

Caged.

Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, I became her darkest storm.

Image
Now available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads

Sensual. Heartbreaking. Passionate. Overwhelming. Maddening.

That’s the love Finn and I share.

Review:

Note: This is the second part of the story that started in The Outskirts. If you haven't read book one yet you should or you may be a bit lost. Slight spoilers for book one ahead

The Outliers was another sweet read. Oh, Sawyer and Finn are perfect for each other! If you have read the first book you know some things will go down in this one, some things Sawyer never saw coming, and I was so glad that she has someone like Finn to be there for her and help support her. To give her that love and…

Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Hunt demons for thrills, then Netflix and chill.

Dominic Salem is many things: professional ghost hunter, curse breaker, and demon slayer to name a few. If there's one thing he's learned, it's never pick up hitchhikers. Something odd about this one made him stop. No doubt he'll regret it.

Lavinia "Vinny" Wake doesn't exactly trust her smoking hot ride, but her nightmares have her all messed up. The only thing she has faith in is her art. Life on her own is lonely, but at least no one can break her heart.

Dom can tell Vinny's nightmares aren't just dreams--they're way worse. Something or someone is drawing her into its trap. Turns out, though, Vinny's life isn't the only thing at stake. Her soul is on the line, too. No pressure.

Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Former hot mess seeking dysfunctional relationship single, well-together male. Sanity preferable.

From now on, I’m going to do everything right. I’m going to make good choices. Say goodbye to the bad boys, narcissists, and emotionally unavailable men. Because starting today, I’m a girl on a mission.

Find a man to walk me down that aisle.

It’s a good solid plan, but there’s only one tiny hiccup.

Adrian Daire.

I’ve asked for his help because if anyone can make me marketable, it’s him.

Only problem?

He’s also one of the aforementioned emotionally unavailable bad boys/ narcissists. Oh, yeah and he slightly crushed my soul once before. But no biggie. I’ve got three whole weeks to exorcise him from my head and my heart… for good.


Review:
I loved Tap Left. It was the perfect book for me. It had everything I love in a story. All that angst and drama and hate, but not hate. Oh, I loved this story. I enjoyed the author's other books, but…

Misadventures on the Night Shift by Lauren Rowe

Now available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Hotel clerk Abby Medford has always enjoyed the quiet solitude of the night shift. The long, boring hours allow her time to study her law books. But when bad-boy- rocker Lucas Ford checks into the penthouse suite one night and demands Abby personally deliver his room service request, her formerly quiet nights are quickly filled with Lucas’s erotic games.

Review:

I'll be honest here. When I first started reading Misadventures on the Night Shift I thought this might not be the book for me. I was on a long plane ride super early in the morning and still half asleep, but it wasn't what I wanted to read right then. So I put it aside hoping when I was in the right mood I would enjoy it more. And I am so glad I did that! Because once I was in the mood for s…

Bad (Bad. Dirty. Power. #1) by Stevie J. Cole & L.P. Lovell

Image
Now available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

True power is never held by good men, only the most perfect of villains. And she and I are both villains…

Two very bad people who want very bad things are never safe together.

Some love stories have no heroes.


Review:

Bad was an interesting read for me. I haven't read a lot of the authors other works so I went into it not knowing much about it. I knew it would be a dark read, but that was about it. And oh, it was fun. Definitely dark and twisted in a way I am not used to seeing.

Ronan is a Russian crime lord and really great at setting up what he wants to have all the power. People fear him for good reason. He doesn't care who he has to take out or what he has to do to get what he wants. He is a master at pretending to be a good person when he needs to be.

Camilla is a Cartel boss, but she has been kidnapped by Ronan when she gets caught up in what he wants. These two. They both are used to getting what they want and bo…

The Strongest Steel (Second Circle Tattoos #1) by Scarlett Cole

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Harper Connelly never expected to find herself outside of a tattoo parlor at one in the morning, summoning the nerve to take back her past. She's determined to forget her old life and is looking for an artist who can tattoo over the scars on her back.

Trent Andrews, local legend and owner of the Second Circle tattoo studio, has his own reasons for specializing in inking over scars. And in spite of her mysterious past and the difficult road ahead, he quickly realizes that Harper is funny, smart, and--under her ridiculously oversized clothing and SPF 100 sunscreen--totally hot. He's happy to take on the challenge of designing a meaningful and deadly full-back tattoo for her.

But when cryptic messages start appearing on Harper's phone, strange deliveries arrive at her door, and Second Circle is vandalized, Harper is convinced that her ex-boyfriend has tracked her down, and worse, that he knows about Trent. Running was the …

A Lover's Lament by K.L. Grayson & B.T. Urruela

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

In a matter of seconds my entire world changed, and it was in that moment that I stopped living and simply began to exist.

In my grief, I sent a letter to the first boy I ever loved. I hoped in writing it I’d find some peace from the nightmare I was living, some solace in my anger.

I didn’t expect him to write back. I wasn’t prepared for his words, and I certainly wasn’t ready for the impact this soldier would have on my life. A deep-rooted hate transformed into friendship, and then molded into a love like I’d never known before.

Sergeant Devin Ulysses Clay did what I couldn’t: he put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, restoring my faith in humanity and teaching me how to live again.

But now that I’m whole, I have a decision to make. Do I return to my life as I knew it and the fiancĂ© I left behind, or do I walk away from it all for the only man to ever break my heart?

Need You for Always (Heroes of St. Helena #2) by Marina Adair

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Emerson “Emi” Blake dropped out of culinary school to care for her ailing mother, but she has bigger dreams than running St. Helena’s most popular pita cart. First on the menu: upgrade to a gourmet food truck. A new part-time job as a personal chef will definitely provide the funds, but it also forces her into close contact with her one and only one-night stand, Dax Baudouin, who’s daring her to try a second taste.

Former army Ranger Dax has a clear mission: come home, get healed, and get gone. Yet Emi’s tough-girl exterior and hidden soft side are even harder to resist than her mouthwatering baklava. After years of battles, he knows better than to try to rescue anyone—not that she’ll let him get close enough to try. Truth is, Dax is starting to think that Emi’s the one person who can save him…if he can just persuade her to give him another shot.

Review:
Need You for Always was a cute read. Dax and Emi are perfect together and it wa…

Blog Tour: A Little Too Late by Staci Hart

Image
Now Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

I wasn't supposed to fall in love with the nanny.

When my wife left, she took the illusion of happiness with her, and I've been caught in a free fall ever since. For nine long months, I've been fighting to figure out how to be a single dad, how to be alone.

For nine long months, I've been failing.

When Hannah walked through the door, I took my first breath since I'd found myself on my own. She slipped into our lives effortlessly, showing me what I've been missing all these years. Because Hannah made me smile when I thought I'd packed the notion of happiness away with my wedding album.

She was only supposed to be the nanny, but she's so much more.

The day my wife left should have been the worst day of my life, but it wasn't. It was when Hannah walked away, taking my heart with her.

Gah! This story! I...I didn't want to put it down. When I first started reading this author I found her s…
