✿ My Review ✿





Another amazing book by C.A. Harms!
Always His is the first book in the Crazed Devotion series.

Young and in love, Nicole and Ryker made promises to each other. But Ryker broke them after he enlists in the Marines, leaving Nicole without an explanation.
Heartbroken and still pining for Ryker, a druken Nicole seeks comfort in the arms of Tyler. From that one night stand, Nicole's greatest gift is born: Tori.
Years later, Ryker comes back asking for forgiveness.
Will Nicole forgive him?






I loved Always His! The story is amazing and sucked me in from the first page! It is full of emotion and it'll take you in an incredible journey. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll scream. But you'll want more!

I loved Nicole! She is so strong and independent. I loved that she didn't give in easy to Ryker and made him grovel.
Ryker is a hot and sexy marine. He has all the traits a alpha male must have: he is protective and possessive, not only of Nicole but also Tori, but also very sweet and gentle. I loved that he knew he messed up and was willing to fight for Nicole.

Once again, C.A. Harms gives us an amazing story with great characters. The story is beautifully written and you can't help but connect with the characters.
Another hit for C.A. Harms and I can't wait to read Liz and Ben's story!








✿ Excerpt ✿


"Hey, Nic, when you gonna give a guy a chance?" A deep chuckle followed Jimmy's attempt at snagging that date he'd been working on for months.

I didn't even take the time to turn and acknowledge him. The man pulled the same shit every Friday and Saturday night. He was at least five years older than me and had a beer gut the size of a pregnant woman's in her last trimester. He was harmless, but he loved to fire me up. Guys like him were one of the things that came with working in a small-town bar and grill. Lucy's was the place to be, and all the hopeless men seemed to flock to it, hoping to get lucky.

"Come on, sweetheart, just a chance is all I'm asking." I heard a few more chuckles from the men he was sitting with. They too had heard this song and dance, time and time again.

"I've given two chances to two different men in my life, and both times I got screwed over. Ain't gonna happen again, Jimmy." I continued to clean off tables as the night came closer to an end.

Most people in town knew the details of my story. They knew the heartache I felt when Ryker left and never returned. They watched as I moped around town, missing him with everything inside me. They watched as I slowly began to self-destruct and fall to pieces.

I should have been smart enough to realize when Tyler Murphy started hanging around me that he had an ulterior motive. But I was young and vulnerable, and he saw right through it. He was able to catch me at my weakest, and nine months later I had a sweet little baby girl to show for that one night of drinking. Now, I wouldn't change the fact I was a mother to a darling three year-old angel, but I sure would change who her daddy was.

Tyler has only seen his daughter a handful of times in her short life, and he had made every one of those times all about him. He was a worthless piece of shit, and most days I thanked God he kept his distance. I didn't want Tori to be influenced by her father. He was too drunk to see straight practically every day of the week, and I didn't want my baby girl to have that type of disappointment in her life.

"Lay off, Jimmy." Speaking of Tyler, I closed my eyes tightly as his voice grew louder and closer. The moment his hand touched my hip, I spun around and shoved the half-empty beer bottle I'd been holding in his face.

"Touch me again and you'll be picking glass shards out of your head for weeks."

Tyler narrowed his eyes and smirked. "Still feisty as hell." He backed up and held his hands out in surrender. "You know how much that turns me on, babe."

"I also know we could put a dress on a pig and you'd still sport wood," I fired back and walked off toward the bar to empty my arms. I wasn't in the mood to deal with Tyler's shit. "I think you need to spend less time worrying about getting laid and more time providing for Tori. You know, your daughter."

"Come on, Nicole, don't be like that." He gave me his best charming smile while taking a seat on the barstool on the other side of the bar. "I'll give you some money next week."

I couldn't help but laugh. "I've been hearing that same shit from you every month. When do you plan on following through? A child is not an occasional responsibility, it's an every-damn-day and-night obligation. When are you ever gonna grow the hell up?" I could feel my ears getting hotter with every word I spoke. "You are twenty-five years old, and I swear to God, most twelve year-olds have more sense than you do." I slammed the bottles into the garbage can and fought to control my anger.

"You didn't think I was that bad the night you crawled in bed with me." This was Tyler's game. He was always throwing our one night of nothing special in my face.

"That's not the way I remember it at all. I remember being upset and you continued mixing drinks for me. It's sure is funny that after about the third one, I remember nothing until I woke up the next morning and looked over to find you. Hell, I even contemplated gnawing off my own leg for fear of waking you if I moved it from beneath your legs." His smirk had finally fallen from his face. "All I wanted to do was wash that mistake from my memory. Forget I ever believed you actually wanted to be a friend. The only good that ever came of that night was Victoria, and I wish more than anything your sorry ass wasn't her father. Because that little angel deserves more than what you could ever give her."

Tyler pushed up from the barstool, and it fell to the ground behind him. The few people that were still lingering around the bar turned to watch as he leaned in, placing his hands on top of the bar. "What do you expect me to be, more like your sweet Ryker?" When Tyler said the name, his nostrils flared with irritation. "Just face it, Nicole, no one will ever be able to be who you want. Everyone that tries will just be competing with him. But you need to remember this." His cockiness returned, and my heart was racing. The mention of Ryker always got a reaction out of me. "He left you, without looking back. Not so much the perfect man, if you ask me."

Without thinking I lunged at Tyler and swung my fist, and it connected with his lower lip. A set of strong arms wrapped around me from behind, and I knew it was Greg, the bartender.

"Get out of here, Tyler, before I turn her loose," he said.

Tyler licked the small amount of blood on his lip before backing away with a smirk. "See you later, Sweet Pea. Give Tori a kiss good night from her daddy."

I tugged at Greg's hands, trying to get away, but he only held me tighter. "Slow down, darlin', that man ain't worth the time or the energy."

He was right, I knew that, but it still didn't tame the need to beat his ass. Tyler Murphy was and would always be a worthless drunk. He played games, and I refused to allow him to play me.

♡ Release Blitz ♡ Evil by Tijan @TijansBooks @SBelleBookblog #Live #OneClick #99c




Evil
by
Tijan

Release Date: May 13, 2016

Genre: Paranormal Romance







You know that group of people in school that everyone fears? Popular. Beautiful. The in-crowd?

That was my family. Kind of.

We were above that group. We held court over everyone else. We were the best looking. We were the mysterious and elusive ones. Most of the girls wanted to (and did) date the guys, but they didn't want to be one of us. They couldn't be. They were our prey.

We were the feared.

But like every family, nothing is as it seems. That was my truth.

Kellan was in his own league. He was our leader and he was the one no one messed with. No one dared. He was ruthless, powerful, and no one could match him...

Except for me.

I was about to find out just how different I was from my family.


** Evil is a full-length paranormal romance stand-alone. **

As I drove through the backstreets of Poehler and headed out of town, I saw Leah and a few others leaving one of the pizza places, like a normal teenager enjoying time with her friends.

I'd never been a part of that world. None of the Bradens had. And for some reason, it never bothered us. We were meant for different things. Still... a part of me wished things could've been different. That I could've grown up as a normal girl with a normal family and even a normal boyfriend.

When I slowed and turned onto the gravel road that led to my home, I knew it was useless to wish that.

I wasn't normal. No one in my family was, but it would've been nice to know what normal felt like.

We lived in a three-story brick house. And as I parked to the left of the garage, I cursed when I saw that every single light was off. That didn't mean everyone was asleep, not in my family. It meant that they were outside, probably down by the river.

It was a little reprieve for me.

I let myself in to the empty house, kept the lights off, toed off my sandals, and moved into the kitchen. The bare tile felt cool underneath my feet. As I opened the fridge, I pulled out a container of orange juice and then screamed.

Kellan stood right behind me, a foreboding expression on his face.

"Oh God." I laughed, weakly, as I set down the orange juice. "You gave me a heart attack just now."

Kellan cocked his head to the side, his eyes on mine.

When I shut the door, the fridge's light was replaced by the moonlight. It fell over his face and gave him a shadowed, mysterious look. Anyone else would've shuddered in scared anticipation. I just shuddered because it was cold.

"What?" I asked. Kellan had something to say, I could tell. I didn't have the patience to play his games.

"Where were you?" he asked, his voice low and gruff, almost raw.

"I had things to do. What are you talking about? I told you that." I wanted him to leave it alone. I didn't want to tell him about the painting, not after so many years of secrecy.

"No, you didn't tell me anything. And I knew you didn't want me to ask, just like you never want me to ask." Kellan moved forward and leaned against the fridge. I knew he didn't intend it, but his stance seemed predatory.

"I saw Leah leaving the pizza place tonight. You sure you want to miss out on that?" I asked nervously. I downed the rest of the orange juice, and when I turned toward the sink, Kellan grabbed my arm and hauled me back.

"What?" I asked. Kellan had never been intentionally rough with me. I'd never seen it, but I knew he had it in him. In fact, something told me that he had a lot in him that I wouldn't want to know.

His fingers tightened on my arm. "What were you doing tonight?"

I looked at his hand, almost distantly, though I felt the pain intimately. "Don't ask me that."

"Why? Are you going to tell me the truth?"

I looked up and met his gaze. His eyes were a piercing blue, so beautiful to look at, but I swallowed and steadied myself. "I would lie. And I don't want to lie to you."








Hello~ (waves)

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

The only thing I take with me, besides a bag of clothes, is the memory of one night. That one night with Frankie, my best friend's little sister. The woman I have loved as long as I can remember.

The memory is what keeps me going when I learn the truth. It's what keeps me sane when I feel like I'm losing my mind. And, it's what drives me back to a life I ran from eighteen months ago.

Yet, nothing is the way it used to be. Frankie has a secret. One that changes everything. Changes who I am. Letting her go is not an option. I have to make her trust me. I need to make her mine.

✿ The Author ✿


Josie Wright has always been a bookworm, spending every free moment with her nose buried in a book. While others were out partying, she spent her evenings with Heathcliff, Sydney Carton or Snape. Romance, fantasy, thrillers - you name it, she read it.

Thanks to the Kindle, she finally arrived in the 21St century and discovered the Indie literature world. Josie has been lost to it ever since. With her love for the written word and her promiscuous feelings for countless book boyfriends, the next logical step was to start writing. The voices in her head and her imaginary friends wanted out to play and so she wrote her debut novel That One Night, that's to be released early summer 2015. And the good news is, there are more voices and imaginary friend where Ben and Frankie came from.

Josie is a financial expert by day and a writing junkie by night. The rest of the time she's a bit of a hippie, a bit of a goth and many things in between. Josie loves to spend time with her husband when she can tear herself away from her book boyfriends. She loves video games, movies, good food and even better music. She's addicted to chips, long baths and shoes. Oh, and books of course. Definitely books.
