✾ Synopsis ✾


Lea Lamb and Austin Wolf were young when they fell in love. They never imagined the future could hold anything other than together - forever.

When Lea's father dies in a tragic fishing accident, she's crushed under the weight of her grief and catches a glimpse of another type of future, one she knows she's not strong enough to face.

Austin is angry. For the past fifteen years, he's believed the woman he loved with every ounce of his soul left him without so much as a backwards glance.

When Lea unexpectedly returns to their hometown, all the years of heartache inside Austin bubbles to the surface and presents itself as blinding rage.

Faced with the truth about the past, a newly discovered secret, these former lovers will learn that if they want to have any chance at the future they'd given up on all those years ago, they will have to rescue one another from drowning in pain so debilitating it will leave them both fighting to breathe.

✿ My Review ✿





Amazing!!!

The death of Lea Lamb's father changed everything for her and Austin Wolf.
Lea and Austin have been dating for three years and can't wait to be husband and wife. When Lea's fisherman father dies, she leaves Cordova, leaving Austin behind.
Fifteen years later Lea is back to Cordova. She still loves Austin but knows she must hate her.
Austin loves Lea, but at the sime time he hates her for how she left.
When the truth comes to the surface about what happened after Lea left, can Austin and Lea find a way to be together?






Aurora Rose Reynolds delivers an amazing book with a fantastic story. Fighting to Breathe takes the reader in a rollercoaster ride of emotions. It has lots of drama, angst, romance and steamy scenes. The story hooks the reader from the first page.






The characters in Fighting to Breathe are great and really relatable.
Lea left home because she was afraid of losing Austin the same way she lost her father. Now she is back and going through a rough time. She manages to stay strong but there are times you can see her vulnerability. She still loves Austin, but believes he has moved on and that he hates her.
Austin is so swoon worthy! He is strong and fierce, and very protective. After Lea left he lost a part of himself. He tried to move on but he couldn't. He loves Lea but he wants to hate her because of the way she left.






Once again, Aurora wrote an amazing book and her writing style makes the reader connect with the story and the characters. And she gave us another alpha male!
Can't wait to read the rest of this series and more from Aurora.

Katherine in Gold
The Beachy Bride #2
by
J.B. Hartnett

Release Date: July 9th, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


*Warning: this is a love story with sexual situations and copious swearing. It also deals with an inappropriate relationship between an underage girl and a much older man.

When Katherine Symes experiences heartbreak at the age of twenty, she picks herself up, dusts herself off, and declares no man will ever break her again. The independent, potty-mouthed Katherine makes no apologies for how she lives her life. Marriage, babies, and husbands are ideas she's never even entertained. There is only one thing she's never had the guts to do.

Open her own cafe.

The day of her best friend's engagement, a stranger bulldozes his way into her life. Handsome, tall, and annoying as hell, he pushes all her buttons. A mutual acquaintance introduces them, and the stranger, Holst Rutherford, wastes no time in presenting Katherine with half ownership in a coffee shop he wants to open in Laguna Beach; he just doesn't want to do it alone.

Can she put up with Holst to achieve her lifelong dream?

Holst moved to the coastal town of Laguna Beach with clear intentions: a fresh start, concentrate on his new business, and enjoy the beach at his doorstep. After ending a toxic relationship, he never considered entering a new one. But there is something about the ever-combative Katherine which makes him realize she could be much more than a business partner. She just might be the one.

However, she is going to need a little convincing.

✿ Excerpts ✿


He looked around my bedroom for some weird reason, then said, "Baby?" He dipped his head so he was right against my ear. "You aren't weak, and I'm sure you can take care of yourself, but I think it's time you let a man help who will make sure, when all is said and done, you have someone to walk out of battle with at your side."

Fuck, I was gonna fall in love with him, that dirty, sneaky, big-dicked, perfect-mouthed, motherfucker.

Apparently, he got all that from the look on my face and smiled. "At least you didn't say what you were thinking out loud."








✿ Teaser Quotes ✿


When I stood before her, nude, my body wet with saltwater from the ocean, I wanted her. I wanted to take all that attitude and fuck it away... her sarcasm, her filthy mouth, her passion, her pain, and show her what a real man was. Katherine declared she was a woman of her word, and I was a perfect match for her... a loyal man.

Always.




"I will treasure that back-handed compliment until I take my dying breath, Katherine."

"Keep calling me Katherine and that dying breath might come quicker than you think," I rallied, thankful the coffee was bringing me back to my good ole self again.

"There she is." He smiled wide, and fuck him for having perfectly straight, white teeth.

Julie is a Southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin) and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers).

She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she could be a singer songwriter... the 'writer' part is the one that stuck.

♡ Excerpt Reveal ♡ Bleeding Love (Hope Town #2) by Harper Sloan @harpersloan @RSofRomance





Prologue

Megan


Holy shit.

What am I doing?

"Oh, God! Right there... I'm coming... Don't stop!"

Is that me screaming like that?

Holy shit.

I didn't even know that noises like that could come out of my mouth!

"You like that?" he asks with his lips pressed against my neck – the vibrations shooting straight to my core.

I focus, my now alcohol free vision, on the man thrusting above me. His dark hair is blending in with the shadows that are dancing around the room. His face is a mask of ecstasy as he thrusts into my waiting body. It's a look of pure desire that I will never forget.

What the hell am I doing?

"You feel so good. Your body so greedy for my cock. You want it harder, darlin'?"

I moan shamelessly and feel my body get even wetter with his huskily whispered words.

Screw it – this feels way too good to stop now.

I reach down, dig my fingers in the firm globes of his ass, tip my head back and beg. Beg with incoherent cries for him to take me harder. To take everything he can.

**Two Hours Earlier**

"You look beauuuutiful," I sing as Dani Reid – No, Dani Cage – walks over to sit next to me at one of the tables scattered around the backyard wedding.

She looks at me, her stunning green eyes bright with love and happiness.

"And you sound a little drunk, my friend," she laughs.

I just smile at her, running my fingers through the lace on her wedding gown. "This is soft."

She just laughs and leans back and looks across the yard to where her new husband, Cohen, is standing by the dock talking to some of his friends. This is another one of those moments when I'm reminded that this group doesn't have a single unattractive person in it. I take a second to look at all the well-built, good-looking men standing around him. When my eyes meet Liam Beckett's, I look away quickly. For months now Liam has made no secret that he would love nothing more than my undivided attention.

"They're all so unfairly hot. No men should be that attractive," I whisper in awe, gaining me another chuckle from Dani. I blush when I realize that my thoughts aren't staying in my head, where they belong. When I look back over to where the group of men are standing, my eyes hit the familiar pair of deep brown ones again, eyes that always seem to know each and every time I'm looking their way. I quickly look away, feeling that blush get even brighter. I'm not ready to deal with him right now. At least not when I'm this tipsy.

Picking up my wine glass, I take another healthy swallow as I do a quick scan, taking in all that is the Reid Family property. They've done a beautiful job transforming the backyard of Dani's family home for Cohen and Dani's wedding. I still can't believe that Dani managed to pull off a surprise wedding without Cohen even catching the smallest hint of her plans.

"Are you sure you're okay with Molly spending the night with my parents, Megs? I know it's hard for you to leave her overnight, but they just love your daughter to pieces. And I know Owen loves having her around." Dani reaches out and takes the hand I had resting against the table while she speaks.

"Yup," I smack and nod my head.

"You're drunk," she says, repeating her earlier observation.

"I'm not drunk, I'm tipsy. There's a huge difference there. If I was drunk I wouldn't be able to walk. Watch!"

I jump up from my chair with a little more power than I mean and quickly stumble when the narrow heel of my five-inch shoes sinks into the soft grass beneath me.

"Whoa, there darlin'."

I feel it, those words, every single syllable deep down in my gut. Each rumbled word vibrating through my body creating a slow burn until they end with a sharp pulse between my legs. His arms locked at my elbows and my back solidly against his front – where my graceless stumble caused me to end up. I jerk my body tight and feel his laughter reverberate through my body once again.

I attempt to pull my arms from his loose but strong hold, only to give up when it becomes clear that he isn't going to let go. Shifting until my face is turned, he lets one arm go and helps me spin until I'm facing him, and moves his hands from my elbows to my hips.

"Hey," he says with a smile, the dimple in his cheek popping out.

"Liam," I sigh and then curse myself for not being able to hide my reaction to him.

His smile turns knowing and his eyes darken before dropping to my lips.

I gulp.

"You should be more careful, Megs."

"It's Megan," I snap.

"I know, babe, you don't have to keep reminding me."

"Then why can't you seem to actually remember it?" I squeak and try to pull my body away from his grip – and fail, again.

"Someone doesn't sound drunk anymore." I hear Dani speak but I don't take my gaze off Liam. "She does look it though." She muses on a laugh, which finally gets my eyes to snap to hers.

"I'm fine! I just had a few glasses of wine and I haven't eaten much. But, I most definitely am not drunk. I think I would know if I was drunk."

Okay, so that's a lie. I might not be drunk, but I am definitely slightly past tipsy. Dealing with Liam – or rather my attraction to Liam – is hard enough for me on a good day, when I'm completely sober. But with this amount of wine flowing through my body, I just can't trust myself.

It's taken everything I have to keep him, and his obvious interest, at bay for the last couple months. When he's around he goes out of his way to get me alone and lay it out. He wants me.

"You look stunning when those shadows aren't rolling around your shoulders," Liam whispers, his lips press close enough to my ear that I can feel his words one by one against my skin.

I shiver, his words hitting me close to home, but the tone causing me to forget I should be pushing him away. Especially when he's talking about things that he has no business speaking about.

"I'm fine," I stammer.

"Yeah, darlin', I know you are."

His eyes keep their hypnotizing hold on my own. I hear Dani excuse herself. I don't turn to watch her disappear in the lingering crowd of party-goers that are still left milling around. The music is still floating in the air around us. As I look into his eyes everything around me feels like it's... alive. It's a feeling that I've been missing for the last few years. A feeling that only comes to visit when I'm with my daughter, or until recently, when Liam Beckett is in the same room. It's a feeling that, even though I shouldn't, I feel guilty for allowing myself to enjoy.

Whether it's the wine, the fact that Molly left a few hours ago with Dani's parents, or the man standing in front of me, all I know is if I don't hold on to this feeling for as long as I can right now, I'll regret it for years to come.

"Megs," he says on a sigh, his fingertips digging in and his eyes swirling with a rich hopefulness that turns those golden flecks you can normally see swimming in his brown eyes into a burning fire lighting his gaze.

Hungry eyes.

I don't think. If I had given myself just a second to process my next move, I'm sure I would have backed out of his hold and run as fast as I could to my car. But, I didn't think, so my next move was pure, one-hundred-percent Megan. But not the Megan I've been for the last couple years since my husband died. No, this Megan feels like I've finally dug myself out of those ashes I've been living in since my life burned up around me. The cloak of depression that normally lingers loosely around my shoulders, dropping to my feet with the feel of Liam pressed tight. I know this feeling won't last, but I suddenly want to hold on to every second I can of this experience, until it leaves me.

I reach out and curl my fingers around his forearms. My eyes growing wide when his brow lifts. With a quick push I rock up and close the distance that is left between our mouths. When my lips touch his, that feeling of being alive burns so bright every nerve in my body feels it, each inch of skin boiling and cooling so quickly it's as if I can't make up my mind if I want to be hot or cold. My hairs stand on end, my skin pebbles – going cold before rushing heat fills my veins, and the very thump of my heart seems to skip a beat the second our lips touch.

One thing I know for sure. I want this. I want this and Liam's going to give it to me.

He doesn't pause. His groan vibrating against my chest only lights the feeling that is firing through my skin. My hands move from his forearms and I run my hands up his chest until both hands curl around his neck and I use the hold to pull my body even closer to his.

His hands move from my hips and he curls them around my bottom, pulling me tightly against his body. When I feel the very obvious sign of his attraction, I moan deeply, and shiver when he answers with one of his own.

I can't tell you how long this kiss lasts. When his tongue moves to swipe against my lips, I open without reservation. We continue, our tongues dancing together while each of our moans are swallowed by the other, until I have to pull away to gulp a breath of air before I pass out – however, the way I feel right now, passing out might very well be a possibility.

"This is finally happening," he snarls in a tone that should scare me, but all it does is act as kerosene to our already uncontrollable fire of lust.

"It is," I agree without question.

"Now," he says.

"Okay," I agree on a sigh and sway toward his hard body.

With the encouragement he needs, his hands finally leave my body. He turns me, wraps one thick arm around my shoulder, and turns to walk toward the front of the house.

"We're leaving?" I question lamely.

"Darlin' I didn't stutter. This is happening," he says, pausing when he reaches the side of the house and the shadows that will give us the privacy we need. His body turns, moving me to stand before him once again. "I need to know you're with me, Megan. I've wanted this since the day I met you, but I knew you weren't ready for me. I've been trying to keep my distance, just waiting for those clouds to leave your eyes. If you don't want me to take you back to my house, strip you naked and fuck you until you can't walk for weeks, then say so now, because the second I have you I won't be letting go."

"Oh, boy," I whisper.

"I prefer oh God, but I'll make that the first item on my to-do list."

"You'll make what?"

"My to-do list, Megs. The list of things I've wanted to do to you for months now. Making you scream oh God will be number one, followed by my name, of course."

"Oh, God," I repeat, my mind swilling with the promise his words inflict.

"Yeah, you're getting it."

His mouth crashes down on mine for a hard but quick kiss before pulling back and giving me another one of those knee-melting smirks. "Last chance, Megan," he whispers while his hands are framing my heated face.

Whatever he sees in my eyes is enough, he gives me a light kiss, takes his hands from my face and curls one around my left hand and pulls me toward his truck.

(Stand alone)

I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

Release Date: February 17th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I've loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He's been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I've loved him through every girlfriend he's ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I've loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he's acted like I'm a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it's time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say... it's going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.

✾ Synopsis ✾


I'm soaring.

After years of hard work and determination, I am exactly where I want to be in life. As the top ranked Freestyle Motocross rider in the world, I have more money than I could ever dream of spending and gorgeous women throwing themselves at me in every city I land. I have everything I could ever want.

Everything except her.

While in Breckenridge for my best friend's wedding, I was introduced to Dakota Shavell, a friend of the bride-to-be, and from the moment our blue gazes met, sparks flew.

What I initially intended to be a single steamy night together turned into a scorching two week road trip to New Orleans with a sassy-mouthed blonde. Being between her legs gave me a bigger adrenaline rush than I'd ever gotten from flying through the air while straddling a bike.

It was supposed to just be fun, a good time. I planned to walk away unchanged.

But it was more. Feelings I never intended to have got involved, and I'll never be the same.

Yet, I still walked away.

Except now I'm injured and my outlook has changed. Priorities have become clear.

And I'm going back to reclaim her... to show her that together we can make the fire between us burst into flames.
