She's a shell of the girl she once was...

Can he chase away the demons threatening to destroy her?

Mackenzie Delano craves control. After tragedy strikes during her freshman year of college, she compensates for the helplessness she felt by micro-managing every aspect of her life, from her business life to her social life... to her love life. But she wasn't expecting to cross paths with a mysterious man who seems to invade her every thought.

Tyler Burnham has been living his life with one rule in mind... never fall in love. Focusing solely on his career, he is able to remain a detached observer of life… Until a case is dropped in his lap, forcing him to form an intimate relationship with a sharp-tongued woman in order to obtain the location of a man deemed an enemy of the State.

When Tyler finds himself falling for Mackenzie, will he be able push his feelings aside and recover the information he needs? Or will he put the mission and their lives at risk to follow his heart?

Chasing The Dragon is the first installment of a two part series of deception and betrayal where nothing is as it seems.

"Dance with me, Mackenzie," he said, holding my hand in his, sensually placing the other just below my hip bone.

"What are you−"

"Shhh...," he admonished, expertly leading me in our dance, the band playing Cole Porter's Every Time We Say Goodbye. "Just enjoy it and don't think."

I simply nodded, turning my head to scan the restaurant.

"Mackenzie, eyes on me. I need to know you're with me."

I snapped my eyes back to his, my mouth slightly agape as my heart pounded in my chest. He was warm and spellbinding. The way he held me in his arms comforted me and made me feel as if they were made to hold me.

"Are you with me?" he asked, raising his eyebrows.

"Yes," I said, my voice soft.

He leaned toward me and the bit of stubble on his chin brushed my skin. "Yes what?" he whispered.

"I'm with you."

The corners of his lips turned up slightly and there was a spark about him that wasn't present yesterday. "I like the sound of that, Miss Delano."

He pulled me closer and I tilted my head to peer into his striking eyes, needing the connection I felt at that moment. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced, all because of a well-placed hand, a sinfully sexy voice, eyes that made me want to melt, and arms that felt like home.

"Who would have thought that the Mackenzie whose lips I couldn't stop seeing in my dreams last night would turn out to be Mackenzie Delano, proprietor of South Padre's hottest new spot?"

"How did−"

"Shhh," he said once more. "You think too much. Just enjoy the moment because it's over once the band plays the final note to this melody."

I snapped my mouth shut, a strange awareness of loss washing over me at the prospect of this complete stranger walking away from me once the song came to an end, wondering if I would ever see him again.

"You're a lovely dancer, Miss Delano," he commented.

"Thank you," I answered, unsure of whether to say anything further. He seemed to be in complete control of the dance, of his words... and of mine. And, for the first time, I was okay with someone else calling the shots.

"You have a dancer's body. I'm confident you've bewitched quite a few men with the way you can seamlessly navigate the dance floor." He leaned toward me and whispered, "I must confess... You've bewitched me."

His voice was sweet as it crooned in my ear, and I was left a silent, blubbering mute, the sincerity in his declaration sparking a renewed sense of longing I had ignored for years. My breathing grew ragged, and I was unable to formulate any response. I simply lost myself in the moment of our dance, wanting his sensual words to ring in the recesses of my mind for all eternity. I wished I could have recorded his voice murmuring those endearing words to me so I could replay them over and over again when I needed to feel something I didn’t think I would ever feel again.

He molded my frame to his, our bodies swaying to the classic tune, and began to sing along with the band. I imagined he was singing to me, and me alone. His voice was deep and guttural, but sweet as he leaned toward my neck and crooned the last verse into my ear. I closed my eyes, losing myself in his warmth, his voice, his everything.

All too soon, the final note rang out, silence encompassing the room, but we continued to sway to the music in our heads, our rhythm perfectly in tune to each other. A loud drum kick echoed, startling me, and I opened my eyes, almost expecting it all to be a dream. But it wasn't, and I was met with my mysterious stranger's strong face. Time stood still as we simply stared at each other, neither one of us moving. I licked my dry lips, nerves causing my breathing to grow more intense and labored.

He grabbed my hand and brought it to his soft lips, placing a kiss on it. The contact caused a rush of adrenaline to run through me. Before I could ask his name, he was gone, leaving me stunned and alone once more.

Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband).

✿ My Review ✿





Rockstar + Biker = Awesome

Katarina Saunders, Kat, was the lead singer of The Grinders. A year ago, she had an accident that cost her her voice. She takes refuge on her childhood home. One day, while running, she meets Dane Reynolds, her neighbour and the President of the Savage Angels MC.
Dane Reynolds was a friend of Kat's mom and has been patiently waiting for Kat to come to him. After waiting a year, he decides to approach her. They feel an instant attraction and connection.
Soon, Kat and Dane start a relationship. But someone, a stalker, doesn't like it and bad things start happening. Who is stalking Kat?

This is a great book. I loved the way the story developed and it hooked me from the start. It has everything that is expected from a biker or rockstar book: action, drama, mystery and steamy scenes.
The book is mainly from Kat's and Dane's POV but there are a few chapters from the POVs of a few of the MC members, of the members and manager of The Grinders and of the stalker (he was really creepy!).

The characters in Savage Stalker are awesome and I loved the relationship between them.
Kat has been under the spotlight since she was twelve years-old and never slowed down, even after fifteen years. She is a strong woman, she knows what she wants and she fights for it.
Dane has all the features of an alpha biker: he is protective and possessive, strong and fierce, bossy and tough, and extremely hot! He will do everything to to keep the ones he loves safe.

Kathleen Kelly wrote an amazing book, flawlessly written. Her story and characters hook the reader from the beginning. Can't wait to read the rest of the Savage Angels MC series!

Nowhere But Here
Thunder Road #1
by
Katie McGarry

Release Date: May 26th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father — the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent — but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're... family. And while Emily — the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member — is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

✿ Excerpt ✿


From Emily's Point of View.
Set up: Emily is riding a motorcycle for the very first time and she's riding it with Oz.

THE MOTORCYCLE ACCELERATES AND THE FEW inches I had established between me and Oz: gone. My body slides forward, colliding into his, and we click together like two puzzle pieces. Heat rushes up my neck and onto my cheeks. My thighs are too close to his, too tight against his body and this is way more intimate than I have been before with a guy.

Even when the two of us kissed.

Oz veers left, away from Olivia's, away from the main road, and the entire motorcycle pitches to the side. My heart thun­ders and my fingers clutch not only at Oz's belt loop, but at the material of his jeans, and his hips.

Oz glances at me over his shoulder as the bike straightens out. "Lean with it, Emily."

Right. Lean with Oz and the bike. Got it. The narrow road curves ahead and this time when Oz and the bike tilt, I move along with it. Oz releases one of the amazingly high handlebars and massages my knee before returning his hand to the grip. Whether in reassurance or to affirm I mastered the curve I don't know, but either way, I sit higher.

The wind whips through my hair and onto my face and I shut my eyes for a brief second and pretend that I'm flying. There's something energizing, something hypnotic, something inside me that begs to burst out of a cage in search of freedom.

The motorcycle kicks forward and our speed increases. Beams of sunlight filter through the towering trees and green foliage blurs together as we fly over the road. From head to toe, my body vibrates with the loud growling of the power­ful machine.

My knee still tingles from where Oz laid his fingers on me and I've never been more aware of my hands in my life. I should let go of Oz's body, but I can't. Belt loops weren't enough and my fingers have somehow edged up and onto his sides. Oz is solid. Yes, definitely solid. Every inch of him that I touch is tight muscle.

Oz is a year older than me, but somehow he seems older, wiser and hotter than any other guy I've known. Just the way he rides his bike creates this overabundance of confidence.

Warm sensations I've never experienced before blossom through me. We enter another curve and I lean with him. I like how in sync I've become with Oz and the motorcycle. Like we've merged into one.

The purr of the engine deepens and Oz eases the bike to a stop. His feet hit the ground and he turns the machine off. It's as if all sound in the world ceased, or maybe I've gone deaf because there's no way anything can be this still or silent.

The wind picks up and the silence is frightened away with the roar of the trees bending. Both Oz and I shift with the flow of air and Oz doesn't move the bike until the breeze gentles.

Oz kicks down the stand and the bike tilts, but not too much. He sets a hand over the fingers that I laced together across his stomach. Oh, hell, I'm plastic wrapped to him. I drop my head onto his shoulder and it places me closer, and closer is not what I need.

I go to unglue myself, but Oz squeezes my fingers, send­ing a jolt of electricity up my arms. "You okay?"

I have to clear my throat to speak and that just sucks. "Yes."

Oz slides his fingers against mine and a fluttering occurs in my stomach. It's a light fluttering. Ticklish even, and my survival instincts scream at me to get off this motorcycle.

After losing his best friend to another guy, the notoriously too-confident Max Emory suddenly feels lost.

21 Stolen Kisses
by
Lauren Blakely

Genre: New Adult Forbidden Romance





✾ Synopsis ✾


When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.

And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.

There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us.
Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword.
Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love - the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before love - landed me in therapy.
Now I'm heading to college, and it's time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he's still in my life?
Because the one man I've always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can't have...
And he wants me just as fiercely.

Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

✿ Excerpt ✿


He inhales sharply. The look in his eyes says we're crossing into the danger zone again. It's the only place I want to be with him. Because when we're there, nothing between us feels dangerous. Everything feels right.

"I turn eighteen in a few more weeks," I say, like my birthday is an open invitation for us to slam back into each other.

He nods. "I know."

A breeze blow by and rustles his hair. A lock falls out of place. Instinct takes over. I raise my hand to reach for his hair.

But he's faster. He grasps my wrist, and the second he does, the moment expands. It stretches and unfolds into the thing I will replay tonight and tomorrow and the next day. I stare at his hand clasped around my wrist, flashing back to all the times he held my hand, touched my wrist, and ran his fingers along my arm. I shiver as the memories collide, the past slamming into the present.

I look up from our hands to his eyes. Blazing, full of heat. Full of all that restraint from him that I know so well.
