And for those of you who might be interested here is a excerpt from Book 1 of the Sullivans The Look Of Love. I hope you enjoy.

Enjoy the following excerpt for THE LOOK OF LOVE…

Chase almost missed the flickering light off on the right side of the two-lane country road. In the past thirty minutes, he hadn’t passed a single car, because on a night like this, most sane Californians—who didn’t know the first thing about driving safely in inclement weather—stayed home.
Knowing better than to slam on the brakes—he wouldn’t be able to help whomever was stranded on the side of the road if he ended up stuck in the muddy ditch right next to them—Chase slowed down enough to see that there was definitely a vehicle stuck in the ditch.
He turned his brights on to see better in the pouring rain and realized there was a person walking along the edge of the road about a hundred yards up ahead. Obviously hearing his car approach, she turned to face him and he could see her long wet hair whipping around her shoulders in his headlights.
Wondering why she wasn’t just sitting in her car, dry and warm, calling Triple A and waiting for them to come save her, he pulled over to the edge of his lane and got out to try and help her. She was shivering as she watched him approach.
“Are you hurt?”
She covered her cheek with one hand, but shook her head. “No.”
He had to move closer to hear her over the sound of the water hitting the pavement in what were rapidly becoming hailstones. Even though he’d turned his headlights off, as his eyes quickly adjusted to the darkness, he was able to get a better look at her face.
Something inside of Chase’s chest clenched tight.
Despite the long, dark hair plastered to her head and chest, regardless of the fact that looking like a drowned rat wasn’t too far off the descriptive mark, her beauty stunned him.
In an instant, his photographer’s eye cataloged her features. Her mouth was a little too big, her eyes a little too wide-set on her face. She wasn’t even close to model thin, but given the way her T-shirt and jeans stuck to her skin, he could see that she wore her lush curves well. In the dark he couldn’t judge the exact color of her hair, but it looked like silk, perfectly smooth and straight where it lay over her breasts.
It wasn’t until Chase heard her say, “My car is definitely hurt, though,” that he realized he had completely lost the thread of what he’d come out here to do.
Knowing he’d been drinking her in like he was dying of thirst, he worked to recover his balance. He could already see he’d been right about her car. It didn’t take a mechanic like his brother, Zach, who owned an auto shop—more like forty, but Chase had stopped counting years ago—to see that her shitty hatchback was borderline totaled. Even if the front bumper wasn’t half smashed to pieces by the white farm fence she’d slid into, her bald tires weren’t going to get any traction on the mud. Not tonight, anyway.
If her car had been in a less precarious situation, he probably would have sent her to hang out in her car while he took care of getting it unstuck. But one of her back tires was hanging precariously over the edge of the ditch.
He jerked his thumb over his shoulder. “Get in my car. We can wait there for a tow truck.” He was vaguely aware of his words coming out like an order, but the hail was starting to sting, damn it. Both of them needed to get out of the rain before they froze.
But the woman didn’t move. Instead, she gave him a look that said he was a complete and utter nut-job.
“I’m not getting into your car.”
Realizing just how frightening it must be for a lone woman to end up stuck and alone in the middle of a dark road, Chase took a step back from her. He had to speak loudly enough for her to hear him over the hail.
“I’m not going to attack you. I swear I won’t do anything to hurt you.”
She all but flinched at the word attack and Chase’s radar started buzzing. He’d never been a magnet for troubled women, wasn’t the kind of guy who thrived on fixing wounded birds. But living with two sisters for so many years meant he could always tell when something was up.
And something was definitely up with this woman, beyond the fact that her car was half-stuck in a muddy ditch.
Wanting to make her feel safe, he held his hands up. “I swear on my father’s grave, I’m not going to hurt you. It’s okay to get into my car.” When she didn’t immediately say no again, he pressed his advantage with, “I just want to help you.” And he did. More than it made sense to want to help a stranger. “Please,” he said. “Let me help you.”
She stared at him for a long moment, hail hammering between them, around them, onto them. Chase found himself holding his breath, waiting for her decision. It shouldn’t matter to him what she decided.
But, for some strange reason, it did.

Wicked Fate

Wicked Fate (Wicked, #1)

Tabatha Vargo’s Wicked Fate is amazing.  Each character is very will written.  The story line is very easy to follow, and keeps you wanting more.  There is the perfect amount of happy, sad, and mystery.  I won’t lie I did cry through part of the book, but won’t tell you why or when you’ll just have to read it.  There are so many things that I would like to say about the book, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone that wants to read it.  The stories beginning really captivates you and makes it easy to imagine being in Mage’s shoes.   The story between Mage and Adam is amazing.  I would not change a thing about how it is written.  Things are not always what they seem to be in this book; which is what keeps the suspense going.  If you are looking for a great YA paranormal book to cozy up with and read this one I highly recommend.  If book 2 is anything like this one I will be in line waiting for it.  Be sure to check out the author on Facebooks and Goodreads.

C J Roberts

C.J. RobertsSeduced in the Dark (The Dark Duet, #2)

Just read C.J. Roberts series The Dark Duet.  I’m not sure to describe it, but it was ver intense and kept you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what is going to happen next.  normally there is a bad guy and a good guy in most love stories but, in this the bad guy turns into the good guy.  The story line is so realistic that I forgot that I was actually a fictional book.  There are so many parts in the books where I wanted to put it down and not read anymore but, I just couldn’t do it.  I needed to know what happened to Livvie and Caleb.  As crazy and messed up as their situation is I couldn’t help but like Caleb in some weird way.  This book is not for the squeamish.  But if you and handle BDSM/Erotica style then check these books out.  They are very graphic about the situations that both Livvie and Caleb are in and have been in.  So if you decide to read I hope you find as interesting as I did.

S.C. Stephens

Effortless (Thoughtless, #2) Thoughtless (Thoughtless, #1)

So I just finished the Thoughtless Series by S.C. Stephens. The first books Thoughtless keeps you on your toes. It is an emotional rollercoaster and makes you not want to put it down so you can find out what happens next. It is a lot of drama, but it was a good read. As usual the guy that wants the girl is described to be sexy as hell and of course has beautiful blue eyes (as do most of the guys that want the girl have), but that is only the icing on the cake. As much as I like Kellan I am more drawn to Denny. The bad boy is always the one the gets the girl, but in this case I think the good guy should get picked. Don’t get me started in Kiera I really am not fond of her. Her character is very well written but she doesn’t deserve the good or the bad guy in this series.

Honor Series

So I just finished the Honor Series by Teresa Mummert, and all I have to say is you have got to read it. This story has just about everything you could want in a book. It keeps you guessing and on your toes. It’s right up there with Fifty Shades of Grey. I personal like this series a little more, but it’s to close to say for sure. If you read it I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. The characters are described very well, and it makes you feel like you actually know them.

Books to read

So I just finished ready Sylvia Day’s 2 crossfire series, and LOVED them. I can’t wait till book 3 comes out in May.
The story line really keeps you on your toes and wanting more. The only thing I hate is having to wait for book 3. But I’m sure it will be worth it. Sylvia Day is one of my favorite authors and does an awesome job keeping you wanting more. If you haven’t you should check her other books they are just as good.
