✾ Synopsis ✾


Miranda

I was always the life of the party, the happy one.
Until Preston killed my soul.
When he came into my life, he destroyed me. I was a shell of my former self, pretending to be fine while wishing I wouldn't wake up the next day. I never dreamed my best friend would come back into my life... and bring Brad Nicholson with her.
I never dreamed the homicide detective with the cocky attitude could show me my worth again. He could show me that my life could be amazing every day.
Until the day he found out about my past with Preston. Then, I was sure he'd see the real Miranda and ditch me for good.


Brad

From a young age, I made a decision.
I knew what I wanted to do with my life and from that point on, my work molded me. Everything became routine. Casual. Until Mackenzie walked into my life, bringing her best friend, Miranda, with her.
From the first moment I saw Miranda, I knew she could be someone special. I didn't have time for relationships, but she was different. She was a piece of the puzzle that could be missing. But she was broken, I could see that. And all I wanted to do was turn her into the girl I knew she really was beneath her perfectly placed mask.

✿ My Review ✿





Amazing book!

Chasing Each Other is Brad and Miranda's story, whom we met in Chasing the Stars. It is the second book in the Chasing series but can be read as a standalone.

Since he met her, Brad felt an attraction for Miranda. But for him, their age difference was too much and he couldn't see someone as beautiful and young as Miranda wanting something with him.
From the moment she met him, Miranda felt a pull towards Brad. But she couldn't believe someone as hot and kind as Brad would want something with a girl with a troubled past like her.
Until the day they can't deny their connection anymore. Will Brad accept their age gap? Will Miranda tell Brad about her past? And how will he react when he finds out?




Chasing Each Other is an amazing book with an incredible story. It takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and keeps the reader hooked from the first page. It is a very emotional romance, a little dark, full of drama, but also has laughter and very steamy scenes.

I loved Brad, although sometimes he seems to be a little bit of an a**hole. He is very sweet and kind with the people he loves. I loved his relationship with his mother, Mackenzie and Harley, and how he was so patient with Miranda.
Miranda is a broken girl. Her previous boyfriend damaged her not only physically but also emotionally. When she meets Brad, she doesn't have any self-esteem and tries very hard to survive each day and keep the demons of her past away. Deep down she is a fighter and you can't help but cheer for her.

J.D. Rivera wrote an amazing book with an incredible story and awesome characters. Her writing style is fantastic and makes the reader connect with the characters. I really loved seeing Hayes and Mackenzie again and I would love to read more about Carson. He was awesome!

✾ Synopsis ✾


Mackenzie...

With each dawn rose a new day, but nothing changed. Not really. My life was the same revolving circle. We barely lived. We moved. We barely got by in a new place. Until we moved again.
New school. New trailer park. Different day.
The first day of my senior year in high school, I was ready to give up. Ready to run far, far away and hope I would never be found. But I'm a smart girl. I knew it would never work. I had a plan. One I was so close to fulfilling. I could start over. Be a new person.
Live without the "poor girl" and "trailer trash" labels attached to my back.
I became guarded, living by my own rules.
Rule number one: don't worry about learning their names, I wouldn't be around long enough for them to learn mine.
But then, I met him. I tried to resist, tried to push away, make myself seem uninterested, but Hayes wouldn't let me. He saw something in me and chased me until I finally gave in. We became friends — best friends. And then, we became more. My guard fell and I opened my heart, only for him to crush it in his bare hands.


Hayes...

Sex. Booze. Football. In that order.
I'd never been the kind of guy who "did" relationships. They seemed pointless. Girls threw themselves at me, practically purred for me to seduce them.
Why would I give that up?
Why would I want more?
But there was something about Mackenzie. Something different from all those other girls. She was someone I was willing to risk everything for. I didn't care where she came from, or about her past. It didn't matter that she lived on "the wrong side of town" and I was the rich kid "sitting on a gold mine".
Even more, those other girls didn’t matter anymore. Because they weren't my Mac.

✾ Synopsis ✾


After a devastating world war, our government has manufactured genetically altered humans. These 'creations' are designed to manage and enforce law and order amongst the citizens. Creations don't know fear or pain. Their sole function is to fight the enemy and live to battle again.

Orphans Kylie Alexander and her twin brother, Lukahn were born for this purpose. Dedicating their lives to sharpening their deadly skills and forfeiting the chance of love and freedom. They ready themselves for Separation, the deadly rite of passage where the oldest teens are drafted into the final preparation for war.

When Kylie and Luke are shipped off to separation three months early, questions arise. Who is the real enemy? What is really happening beyond the fractured sanctuary of the training compound?

Humans and creations alike have become lethal foes when a plague of the living dead becomes the number one hazard. Strategies change as the twins discover they may not be the saviors of humankind after all.

They may be the real enemy of the people.

✿ Excerpt ✿


He places his hands over mine, and moves them so I can feel him underneath my touch. We move up, down, and over his upper body. I get to his waist and move around him to his back. I don't know why, or what makes me, but I pull him closer.

As our bodies meet, he greets me with his lips. A kiss as gentle as a breeze.

Like in the alley, our lips and tongues are already familiar with each other. Again, a heat wave rushes over me and my chest rises, pressing against him.

He breaks our kiss, and like yesterday, my lips instantly miss his. "I have a real issue with jealousy," he says. "And I don't like him."

I nod.

"I am also very selfish."

"Right." Just, shut up and kiss me. Again. And again.

"I don't mean to come off as a tyrant."

"Un-huh."

He looks away from me. "So, I need to be the only guy you're kissing, the only guy touching you, and he cannot touch you. Not even to escort you to an execution."

I nod, impatiently waiting for his lips to return.

"Respond," he says low with authority.

I bite back my smile. "I understand."

"And I'll give you the same."

"I thought you said you weren't kissing anyone."

"No, I said no one has ever seen me with all my clothes off. I've kissed plenty."

That makes me feel uneasy. I've only kissed one, and now two, including him. "And touched?" I question and my own jealousy of the ones who came before me twitches my trigger finger.

"Not the way I touch you, or want to." His hand on my back slips under my shirt and he touches my bare skin. It slowly moves to my hips and grabs me firmly. My skin moves under his touch, tightening and letting go, chilling and warming. I'm shaking and I hope he can't tell.

"Good." In my mind, his hand travels aggressively up over my stomach to my chest, it grabs me before his other pulls my shirt over my head. My thoughts ignite a heated ambition within me. My breaths quicken and realizing it, I make them quiet so he can't tell.

♡ Cover Reveal ♡ Damaged & Dangerous (The Sacred Hearts MC #6) by A.J. Downey




Damaged & Dangerous
The Sacred Hearts MC #6
by
A.J. Downey

Release Date: September 27, 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


She's Damaged...

Dani Broussard never imagined that her life would turn out like this. She always thought that her grandfather would be there for her into adulthood and that her high school sweetheart, Jared, would be the man she would marry. That isn't what happened though. Instead, her grandfather got sick and passed away before Dani saw the age of nineteen. It was just her and Jared until he hooked up with a local MC, The Suicide Kings... Then it was just her. Pig-Pen claimed her body, rules her life, but he would never hold her heart. Kept because of her looks and a particular set of skills unique only to her, Dani has been with The Suicide Kings for the last three years... three long damaging years. She hates it, all of it, the pain the humiliation, the fear... and as strong as Dani is, as clever as she can be, she is quickly finding that death may be the kinder, gentler option rather than live through any more of this hell.

He's Dangerous...

Red-XIII is, and always will be, a Sacred Hearts man. But for now, he's a Suicide Kings prospect. Tasked with providing intelligence on the King's inner workings to his real club, Thirteen has been slowly, quietly and carefully dismantling the King's operation from the inside out. The situation is dangerous, good thing Thirteen is a dangerous guy but even he can't be everywhere at once and a couple of missteps have cost the Sacred Hearts dearly. Doubly determined to finish this with no more wreckage or damage to the SHMC, Thirteen is blindsided by his heart when he lays eyes on Dani. A pretty, little thing with long black hair and striking blue eyes. She slays him with one look from her damaged soul and now Thirteen has tasked himself with two missions... Take down The Suicide Kings and get both Dani and himself out alive.

For now those missions run parallel to each other but what happens if they ever end up at odds? The bigger question is, how can he get close to the VP's Ol' Lady as a Prospect and not get them both burned?

✿ Excerpt ✿


I finished cleaning the clubhouse all the while trapped in memory. I didn't realize that I'd had company as I'd worked. As usual, he was there, parked on the end of the couch, boots propped on the old, scarred, garage sale coffee table, only this early in the day he'd forgone the beer in favor of a bottle of water. Another thing that set him apart as 'other', to the rest of the guys beer was bottled water.

I secreted a small smile in his direction and he secreted one back but we didn't speak, we didn't need to. Soon, Skid came around and our little private moment was in the wind but that was okay. I knew that I could or would never be with Thirteen, but having him around had become a little ray of light in an otherwise darkened room. Maybe it was foolish to hope or to dream at this stage but I couldn't help but believe that with a guy like Thirteen around the club, maybe, just maybe things could get better.

"What you smiling about?" Skid asked me as he bellied up to the bar. I startled, had I been smiling? I glanced at the older biker and he raised an eyebrow under his faded black do-rag.

"I don't know..." I frowned and flailed helplessly inside my head for a convincing lie, "I was just thinking about a piece I was going to try and create. I think I have all the pieces now."

Skid chuckled, "It's good to see you smile Rac. How 'bout you get me a beer? One of them ones with the orange dude on the label." He turned on his stool and started talking to Thirteen who had been grinning like an idiot behind his back but who quickly schooled his features into neutrality before Skid turned.

I rolled my eyes at Thirteen behind Skid's back and got Skid the bottle he asked for, popping the top. I set it on the bar by his hand and he picked it up and drank, never breaking his stride as the two of them spoke bike. I was simply nothing more than furniture again which I didn't like but at the same time was definitely the lesser of two evils.

Pretty soon Gordy, Pipes and Cooter came in from the front of the club and I was serving them up drinks when Pig-Pen and Griz made their arrival. The rest of the guys started to trickle in from the front or the back lot and girls started coming intermixed with the guy's arrival. The party was in full swing the sky dark outside when Gordy swore and pounded his fist on the bar.

"God damn fucking son of a bitch!" he bellowed, looking at the lighted screen on his phone. Griz shoved down on the head of the strung out broad sucking him off and she choked, struggling.

"What is it now?" he demanded and let her up. She stood up disgusted and stumbled towards the bathrooms.

"Trouble!" Gordy declared, "But if we all go now we might make it, Ace and Deuce are holed up at the North West safe house, says Sacred Hearts have 'em pinned down, four of 'em." Griz stood up and tucked himself back in his pants doing up his jeans.

"Boys! We're goin' huntin'!" he yelled. A cheer went up and I swallowed hard, Thirteen stood.

"Not you!" Gordy stabbed a finger at him.

"Take Coon to your place and keep her locked down. She's our last bet on making any god damned money."

Thirteen raised an eyebrow, "I live in a cabin with no electricity!" he declared.

"So fucking what!?" Pig-Pen called, "Don't care if she's comfortable, so long as she can produce. Don't be god damned pussy over her pussy!"

Thirteen gave a shrug and I gathered my purse. The guys were all going out the back door to the parking lot where they kept their bikes I could already hear some of them firing up. Dredd and Flyer were chasing out the club sluts, which truthfully there weren't many left hanging around since the club's drug supply started drying up. I came around the bar and Pig grabbed me by the elbow, hard.

"You're my bitch, so don't be getting any ideas about spreading those whore legs of yers for Pretty boy over there," he muttered savagely in my ear, his breath washing over me, a fetid mixture of whiskey and cigarettes with an overlay of just plain rot.

"I wouldn't dream of it." I plastered on a fake as hell sincere smile, "I know who takes care of me," I said.

"Damn right." And as if to prove his point he shoved his mouth against mine and his tongue in my mouth all the while looking daggers at Thirteen. I gave little resistance. I didn't want or need any bruises except the ones that were likely imprinted on my arm from where he gripped me, besides that, I'd learned a long, long time ago that resistance was futile and only hurt more in the end. Pig-Pen finally broke the kiss and thrust me in Thirteen's direction before going out the door.

"You good to ride?" he asked. I nodded grimly. I just wanted outside so I could spit. Thirteen grabbed my coat off the hook in the wall behind the bar and handed it to me and I shrugged into it.

"C'mon." he put a hand on my shoulder and made like he was shoving me in front of him out the door, though his grip on my shoulder was light, not painful. He put on his helmet and glasses sitting astride his bike. I put on the spare and with one final brave smile at Pig who was glaring at me and standing with Griz and Gordy I got on behind Thirteen.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Roth cleared his throat. "Shortie, look... look at your hand."

Look at my hand? Why in the world would he be asking me to do that in the midst of all the cray?

"Do it," he said quietly and too gently.

The dread exploded in my gut like buckshot, and my gaze dropped to my left hand. I expected to see the weird marbling of black and gray, a mixture of the demon and Warden that existed inside of me and a combination I'd become almost familiar with by now. My nails had lengthened and sharpened, and I could tell they were hard enough to cut through steel, as hard as my skin, but my skin... it was still pink. Really pink.

"What the...?" My gaze traveled to my other hand. It was the same. Just pink. My wings twitched, reminding me that I had shifted.

Zayne swallowed. "Your... your wings..."

"What about my wings?" I almost screeched, reaching behind me. "Are they broken? Did they not come out—" The tips of my fingers came into contact with something as soft as silk. My hand jerked back. "What..."

Stacey's watery eyes had doubled in size. "Um, Layla, there's a mirror above the fireplace. I think you need to look in it."

I met Roth's gaze for a second before I spun around and all but ran to the fireplace I was sure Stacey's mom had never used. Clutching the white mantel, I stared at my reflection.

I looked normal, like I did before I shifted... like I was going to class or something. My eyes were the palest shade of gray, a watered-down blue. My hair was so blond it was almost white, and a mess of waves that went in every direction like usual. I looked like a colorless china doll, which was nothing new, except for the two fangs jutting out of my mouth. I wouldn't show them off at school, but that wasn't what caught my attention and held it.

It was my wings.

They were large, not as massive as Zayne's or Roth's, and normally they were almost leathery in texture, but now they were black... black and feathered. Like legit feathered. That soft, silky thing I'd felt? It had been tiny feathers.

Feathers.

"Oh my God," I whispered at my reflection. "I have feathers."

"Those are definitely feathered wings," Roth commented.

I whipped around, knocking over a lamp with my feathered right wing. "I have feathers on my wings!"

Roth cocked his head to the side. "Yeah, you do."

He was absolutely no help, so I turned to Zayne. "Why do I have feathers on my wings?"

Zayne shook his head slowly. "I don't know, Layla. I've never seen anything like this."

"Liar," hissed Roth, shooting him a dark look. "You've seen that before. So have I."

Bitter Sweet Love
The Dark Elements #0.5





✾ Synopsis ✾


In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn't just Jasmine's crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny — fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything... right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn't help that Jas's father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he's back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn't taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart — or shatter it all over again...


"With her signature flare for combining humor, romance and action, Armentrout weaves a fast-paced read that will have readers' hearts racing in more ways than one. Like Armentrout's previous heroines, Jasmine is fun and full of attitude, while Dez is as snarky as he is sexy. This is a must read for new and old fans alike!" -RT Book Reviews

White Hot Kiss
The Dark Elements #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens — a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe — Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth — a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to — especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne... it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life — no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who's pretty sure things can't get worse.

The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla's powers begin to evolve, and she's offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She's finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay...
