Jay McLean

✾ Synopsis ✾


In a sprint, every millisecond counts.
When you're waiting for love, those milliseconds can feel like eons.

High school senior Lucas Preston has it all: star of the track team, a scholarship waiting for him, an apartment to himself and a revolving door of girlfriends. He also has an older sister, five younger brothers and a father who relies on him to make sure those brothers don't kill each other.
His saving grace? Lois "Laney" Sanders, a girl he started to fall in like with when he was just eleven.
A girl who became his best friend, his confidant, his courage.

It took only sixteen clicks and eight seconds for Lucas to realize that his like for Laney had turned into love.
Eight life-changing seconds.
It's also the exact length of time it took to lose her.

✿ My Review ✿





Lucas is book one in the Preston Brothers series by Jay McLean.

Lucas Preston and Lois "Laney" Sanders became best friends in the day they met when they're both only eleven years old. Through the years, they have been there for each other, for the good and for the bad.
But they want more. They're both in love for each other, but they're afraid to show their feelings. Lucas feels he isn't enough for Laney. And Laney is waiting on the sidelines for Lucas to notice her.
When lines are crossed, will their relationship bloom from friends to lovers, or will they lose everything they built through the years?

I loved Lucas! The story hooked me from the prologue and I couldn't stop reading. It took my emotions in a rollercoaster ride and I loved every second. I laughed, I cried, I screamed.
I really loved how Lucas and Laney's relationship developed and all the tension between them.
And the wisdom of Kathy Preston? Amazing!

Lucas Preston is amazing and so swoon worthy! He's always loved Laney, but never thought he was good enough. He always thought he had more time to make her see that he was the one for her. But circumstances changed and lines were crossed. Now he has to prove to her that he really loves her. I loved how he fought for Laney and how loyal he is to his family. How he took care of his little brothers. So sweet!
Lois "Laney" Sanders is a shy girl, but also very strong, independent and full of attitude. She fell for Lucas when she met him and has been waiting for him to notice her. When Lucas hurt her really bad, she makes a decision that changes their lives forever.

Jay McLean outdid herself with Lucas! She gives us a superb story of friends to lovers, full of emotion, hooking the reader from the first page, and characters so real and relatable that the reader can't help but feel what they're feeling.
Can't wait to read the rest of the series, especially Logan's story!

✾ Synopsis ✾


How far will one man go for the woman he's loved since high school?


Jamie

I've been in love with my best friend for as long as I can remember. I tried to tell her in high school, which royally backfired. Ten years hasn't changed things, but now I'm finally ready to lay it all out on the table. The only problem? She's got her sights set on someone else.

I made the mistake of letting her go once before. This time I’m going to prove that the only guy she needs is me.


Brynn

We're best friends — nothing more — and it's good like this. That's what I've been telling myself since the night in high school when we shared a single kiss, a night that was great — but then wasn't. Now we're on a road trip to California, and he's surprising me at every turn: helping me overcome my fear of heights, belting out my favorite Monkees song, and looking way sexier with his shirt off than a best friend is supposed to.

But admitting how I feel may mean losing our friendship. I thought I'd find the answer to my happiness in California, but now I'm wondering if the right guy for me has been by my side all along.

✿ Excerpt ✿


She took a step closer, and he inhaled the warm scent of vanilla and, maybe, a hint of cinnamon? He'd been too caught up in the moment to notice before. But now he began to feel drunk, wondering if one glass of wine could knock him on his ass. But he knew it couldn't have. It was this woman.

He swallowed hard, his throat suddenly dry.

"Jesus you smell good, Annie."

She leaned closer. Because apparently she was trying to kill him.

"What would the line be — if you wrote it in your book? How would you describe my scent?"

Uh, he could describe the agony of the erection straining against his pants, but somehow he thought she wouldn't appreciate that.

Christ. Words. She wanted words, now? After he told her he was blocked? But he had to prove his plan would work, that they could use this evening — and each other — to their advantage and neither of them be worse for the wear.

Fine. Words. The girl wanted words, so he would deliver. "He grew drunk," Wes said. "Drunk on the nearness of her, on the warm, sweet scent of home. Because that's what she was to him. She was home. And until he kissed her, he hadn't known what that meant. Home wasn't a place. It was a state of mind. It was her, the intoxicating scent of her skin, and his lips pressed against it."

He hadn't realized until he spoke the last of it that his eyes were closed. Maybe hers were, too, because she wasn't saying anything. All he heard was her sharp, shallow breaths. All he felt was his forehead pressed to hers.

How the hell did they get here?

"I think your writer's block might be cured," she whispered. "That was way more romantic than an ice sculpture."

Wes laughed softly. "I don't write romance," he said.

"Whatever," she countered, but she was still smiling.

"How about your ex situation? That cured yet, or do we want to give them more of a show?"

She cleared her throat. "I think the jury's still out."

Okay. They were on the same page — so to speak. He wanted this night, whatever ended up happening, and Annie seemed on the verge of jumping off this cliff with him.

He straightened and took a step back so his eyes could find hers. She chewed her bottom lip.

"One night, Annie. Whatever you want out of this evening, I'm your guy. And when we go home tonight—"

"Tomorrow," she said, and Wes's brows drew together. "When we go home — tomorrow..."

The One That Got Away
Kingston Ale House #1
by
A.J. Pine

Publication Date: April 18th 2016

Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select, Contemporary Romance





✾ Synopsis ✾


She's holding out for a happy ever after.


Annie

I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It's why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I'll never get disappointed by love.

So what if my brother's best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he's agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.


Wes

The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league.

Now I'm her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated.

Annie is my muse. When I'm with her, my writer's block fades away, and the words finally flow.

The only problem? She wants the fairy tale — her very own happily ever after — and anyone who's read my book knows the truth. I just don't believe they exist.

✾ Synopsis ✾


She created the game, but the rules are about to change.


The second I met Will Evans in his three-piece suit with that hot as hell British accent, I wanted him.

That is... until he insulted my shoes and stole my corner office.

Now I have to work side-by-side with the surly British arsehole who just set my career back six months.

It's fine. That accent won't get to me, no matter how sexy it sounds when he asks permission to do things professionals shouldn't do. On the couch. In the corner office I still wish was mine.

Maybe we can't keep our hands off each other, but I'm sure as hell not falling for a guy who lives an ocean away. Because in six months, he's leaving for good.

I don't do broken hearts, but you know what they say...

There's a first time for everything.

✿ Excerpt ✿


TRUMAN GRITT LOCKED the door to Whiskey Automotive and stepped into the stormy September night. Sheets of rain blurred his vision, instantly drenching his jeans and T-shirt. A slow smile crept across his face as he tipped his chin up, soaking in the shower of freedom. He made his way around the dark building and climbed the wooden stairs to the deck outside his apartment. He could have used the interior door, but after being behind bars for six long years, Truman took advantage of the small pleasures he'd missed out on, like determining his own schedule, deciding when to eat and drink, and standing in the f**king rain if he wanted to. He leaned on the rough wooden railing, ignoring the splinters of wood piercing his tattooed forearms, squinted against the wetness, and scanned the cars in the junkyard they used for parts — and he used to rid himself of frustrations. He rested his leather boot on the metal box where he kept his painting supplies. Truman didn't have much — his old extended-cab truck, which his friend Bear Whiskey had held on to for him while he was in prison, this apartment, and a solid job, both of which were compliments of the Whiskey family. The only family he had anymore.

Emotions he didn't want to deal with burned in his gut, causing his chest to constrict. He turned to go inside, hoping to outrun thoughts of his own f**ked-up family, whom he'd tried — and failed — to save. His cell phone rang with his brother's ringtone, "A Beautiful Lie" by 30 Seconds to Mars.

"F**k," he muttered, debating letting the call go to voicemail, but six months of silence from his brother was a long time. Rain pelleted his back as he pressed his palm to the door to steady himself. The ringing stopped, and he blew out a breath he hadn't realized he'd trapped inside. The phone rang again, and he froze.

He'd just freed himself from the dredges of hell that he'd been thrown into in an effort to save his brother. He didn't need to get wrapped up in whatever mess the drug-addicted fool had gotten himself into. The call went to voicemail, and Truman eyed the metal box containing his painting supplies. Breathing like he'd been in a fight, he wished he could paint the frustration out of his head. When the phone rang for the third time in as many minutes, the third time since he was released from prison six months ago, he reluctantly answered.

"Quincy." He hated the way his brother's name came out sounding like the enemy. Quincy had been just a kid when Truman went to prison. Heavy breathing filled the airwaves. The hairs on Truman's forearms and neck stood on end. He knew fear when he heard it. He could practically taste it as he ground his teeth together.

"I need you," his brother's tortured voice implored.

Need me? Truman had hunted down his brother after he was released from prison, and when he'd finally found him, Quincy was so high on crack he was nearly incoherent — but it didn't take much for f**k off to come through loud and clear. What Quincy needed was rehab, but Truman knew from his tone that wasn't the point of the call.

Before he could respond, his brother croaked out, "It's Mom. She's really bad."
