He Will Be My Ruin

K.A. Tucker

Release Date: February 2, 2016

Genre: Adult Suspense





✾ Synopsis ✾


The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her suspense debut with this sexy, heartpounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend's death, a story pulsing with the "intense, hot, emotional" (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.

A woman who almost had it all...

On the surface, Celine Gonzalez had everything a twenty-eight-year-old woman could want: a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan's Lower East Side, a job that (mostly) paid the bills, and an acceptance letter to the prestigious Hollingsworth Institute of Art, where she would finally live out her dream of becoming an antiques appraiser for a major auction house. All she had worked so hard to achieve was finally within her reach. So why would she kill herself?

A man who was supposed to be her salvation...

Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what's left of her best friend's belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a lethal cocktail of pills and vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers a scandalous photograph in a lock box hidden in Celine's apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man Celine believed would change her life.

Until he became her ruin.

On the hunt for evidence that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine's private life — and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer. A killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

✿ My Review ✿





WOW!

This book is amazing!!!

Maggie Sparkes is back to New York to take care of Celine's, her best friend, belongings after her she was found dead in her apartment. It looks like Celine committed suicide, but Maggie doesn't believe it.
Did Celine kill herself? And why?
Or was she murdered? And if she was, by whom and why?

He Will Be My Ruin story is fantastic! It is full of mystery and drama, with a touch of laughter and steamy scenes. The suspense kept me hooked and I couldn't stop reading until I finished the book. Like Maggie, I wanted to find what really happened to Celine. Every time a new character was introduced, I thought "This character killed Celine!". But then a secret from Celine's past was unveiled and I was like "She killed herself!". But then something happened and I changed my mind again!
I loved that the book was from Maggie's POV but that there were some chapters from Celine's POV.

The characters in He Will Be My Ruin are great and I couldn't help but love them.
Maggie is an humanitarian. She is very strong and independent. But she's also very sweet and kind. I love how loyal she is. She knew Celine and she didn't believe that she took her own life and wouldn't stop at nothing to find the truth.

He Will Be My Ruin is an incredible book. K.A. Tucker wrote a fantastic story with awesome characters. Her writing style is flawless and makes you connect with the story and the characters.
Can't wait to read more!








✿ Excerpt ✿


"I need some advice, Grady, and I have no one else to ask."

"Shoot."

"If you needed answers and the only person to give those to you was a person you didn't know, had never met, and who might not like the questions you have to ask, what would you do?"

He twists his lips in thought. "I'd create a situation to meet this person, and make it hard for them to refuse me."

Simple in theory... "But how?"

He exhales heavily, his warm breath grazing my cheek telling me that he's facing me. "Find common ground. A location, a purpose, an acquaintance. Force the meet and then work your questions around the real ones that you want to ask. You can get a lot of information out of a person just by treading too close to what they don't want to talk about. The look in their eye, their facial expressions, the way they react to the mention of a name, or a place."

Grady seems more intelligent than what I'd expect of a pot-smoking building super. "You sound like you've been in my situation before."

"Once or twice. Maybe." I hear the smile in his voice.

Find common ground. Force the meet. The only common ground I have with this guy is now six feet underground in a San Diego cemetery.

Unless...

There is something that we're both very familiar with.

I pull out my phone and scroll through my emails to find the one with her phone number. I know this is beyond inappropriate, but once I get something in my head, there's no dislodging it. Plus, I'm high.

"Hello?"

"Hey Dani. It's Maggie Sparkes."

"Hi... Is everything okay?" She definitely sounds shocked to hear from me.

Grady watches me quietly. "I'm sorry to be calling so late. You know how you offered help with anything I needed? Well, I need a favor."

♡ Blog Tour + #Giveaway ♡ Thirst: Blood of my Blood by R.P. Channing @RPChanning



♡ Blog Tour ♡



by
R.P. Channing

Genres: Young Adult Romance, Paranormal Romance, High School, Vampires, Demons, Witches, Dark Fantasy, Horror

Release Date: November 26th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


240+ Pages
WITH BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS

***********************************

~ Kira Sutherland ~

After a near fatal accident (and getting cheated on by her 'boyfriend'), and beating up the lead cheerleader (with whom the boyfriend cheated...), and being labeled as having 'issues' in her school because she, uhm, sees ghosts, Kira is left with two choices:

1. Continue her 'therapy' (where she's told the ghost is a hallucination and also gets her legs ogled too often...)

Or

2. Go to Starkfield Academy, a boarding school for "Crazies and Convicts" (as the social media sites call them.)

She chooses the latter...

***********************************

~ Cory Rand ~

Cory Rand has not had an easy life. His mother died in a car accident when he was twelve, and so did his mother's best friend... sort of. You see, Janice made a promise to take care of Cory just before she died, and so she lingers. Undead. A ghost that watches out for him.

Brought up in an abusive home, Cory quickly falls into a life of disreputable behavior. After his third offense (which was prompted by a girl, as usual - he has a weakness) he's left with two choices:

1. Be tried as an adult and share a cell with a guy named Bubba (he thinks...)

Or

2. Go to Starkfield Academy, which Cory is pretty sure is run by vampires. But, hey, at least he'll get an education.

He chooses the latter...


It's at Starkfield that Kira meets Cory Rand, a boy with an insatiable Rage who sees ghosts, too. As well as other things, other things from his past, things that confuse him, things like fire and witches and demons.

Things he's always ignored.

Until now.

PROLOGUE

-1-
The Puppy Eyes

My life was perfect.

I had the perfect shoes and the perfect friends and I lived in the perfect house. My nails were perfect and my hair was perfect (except on Sundays, it was always windy on Sundays) and I had the perfect clothes. My lips were a perfect red and my hair perfectly straight. My eyeshadow was perfect, my hips were... okay, and my waist... well... also okay. Nothing was wrong in my life.

But then there was Jack.

Jack was a problem.

He needed to go. I mean, when you're dead, you're dead! I had told him this endlessly. Somehow, Jack didn't get it. I mean, I felt sorry for the guy. Sure. Being stuck between this life and the next. But just because I found him, does that mean I needed to keep him?

I think not!

Sadly, when Jack got that look in his eyes, that weary, almost teary (if his tear-ducts worked) look, I melted. I just couldn't send him away. Not even Jack knew where he would go after he died.

Would he, like, die? As in — dead, nada, kaput, finito, gone, no more? Bye bye, sayonara, ciao, hasta la vista baby and all that?

I couldn't have that on my conscience. No way.

I lay on my bed, wondering what to do about him. "Jaaaaaaack," I hollered.

"Jaaaaaaack!"

Still no answer.

"Jack!"

Jack... materialized.

His eyes rolled down to the ground. He was making those puppy eyes again. "Jack, I told you not to do that. I told you not to play on my sympathies."

His puppy eyes became worse.

His skin was gray and, well, dead.

"Oh, brother," I said. "I have to do something about you. If mom finds out I have another 'imaginary friend' — at my age — well, I'd die of embarrassment. But, like, really die. Not like you." I wondered about this. Would I die? Was Jack a freak accident, or did all people live on like him? Think of the cemeteries...

The idea excited me somewhat.

"What would you have me do, Miss Kira?"

"Knock off the Miss Kira crap. I told you it's just Kira."

"Yes, Miss Kira."

The dead. There's just no reasoning.

"Fine, Miss Kira it is then." Rover barked like a lunatic in the garden. No one else might be able to see Jack, but I was sure my dog could.

"I have to do something about this," I mumbled.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I'm wearing a huge smile as I get dropped off at my building and walk through the door, talking to Ariela on the phone.

Having her come back into my life after so many years has been both excruciating and exhilarating. But this weekend changed things. We faced our past together and, in one week, we're going to decide if we want to pursue a future together.

As much as I want to be with her, honestly, I'm a little torn about it.

Part of me wants nothing more than to pretend we never broke up. But the reality is that she's married. And even though she filed for a divorce, I wonder if it's too much too soon.

In a very short time — on a whim — she came to California, was reunited with me, slept with me, filed for a divorce, got a new job, and went back to Eastbrooke. I mean, how many more life changes can she throw at herself all at once?

I loved her with everything I was in high school, and I was devastated when she left with nothing more than a goodbye.

And since she's come back, she's wreaked more havoc in my life.

Soon, I'll have to decide if I want to risk another relationship with her. Even though she still looks like the girl I loved, she's different — life, age, and time have that effect.

"Riley!" A shrill voice stops me in my tracks, wiping the smile off my face.

"Shelby, what are you doing here?" I ask, as she gets up from the couch in the lobby. "I told you I didn't want to see you again."

"I need to talk to you, Riley. It's important. Can I please come up?"

I know girls like her. No way I'm letting her come up.

Ever.

"Shelby, as in naked, leather-strap, threesome Shelby?" Ariela asks in my ear.

"Uh, hang on," I say to her, putting the phone against my chest. Then I say discreetly, "Shelby, whatever you need to say, you can say here."

"God, you're such an ass," she hisses loudly. "I thought you might want to do this in private."

"I don't want to do anything with you, in public or in private."

"Well, you're going to have to now, Riley. Because I'm pregnant," she says, uttering the words no man wants to hear from a three-night screw.

"You're what?"

"Do you really want to do this here?" she asks, glancing toward my doorman.

"Fine. Come up." I drag her into the elevator. Once it closes, I say, "I don't know who you've been fucking, but if you're pregnant, there's no way that it's mine."

"Yes, it is, Riley. I haven't been with anyone since we broke up."

"We didn't break up. You went to a few events with me. We fucked. And I used a condom every single time."

She shrugs. "I don't know what to tell you. They aren't one hundred percent effective. I'm sorry, Riley. I certainly didn't plan on getting pregnant."

"Aren't you on the pill?"

"No, it made me fat."

I shake my head. I can't fucking believe this. But I'm not stupid either. I go into my guest bathroom, grab a pregnancy test out of the cabinet, and then hand it to her. "Take this."

"Why do you have that?"

"Honey, you're not the first girl to tell me she's pregnant." I open it up and hand it to her. "Go pee on it, bring it out, and we'll watch. See what happens."

She hesitates, just as they all do. "Um, I don't know if it will work yet. I'm barely pregnant."

"So you didn't do a test?"

"Yes, I did a test, Riley. God, you're being such an ass."

She's right. I am. "I'm sorry. Please, for me, go take the test."

"I will, I'm just saying that they aren't all as accurate as the one I took." She lets out a dramatic sigh and goes into the bathroom, not bothering to shut the door. When she sees me watching her pee, she gives me a sexy smile.

I turn around.

Fuck.

Of course, that's what got me into this mess.

Please, please, don't let her be pregnant.

I hear the toilet flush and turn around.

"Here's the stick, Riley. I'm going to sit down. Pregnancy is exhausting."

She flops down on my couch while I stare at the stick, willing the line not to change.

But it does.

✿ My Review ✿






Amazing book!

I loved the The Sinners MC series and couldn't wait to read the MC Sinners Next Generation. And Pandemonium didn't disappoint!

Ava is the daughter of the President of the Hell's Knights MC, Jackson, and grew up loved and protected by him and her biker family. Until one day she is taken and she starts drowning. The only one that can save her is Lucas Black, the man that found her after she was kidnapped.
Detective Lucas Black finds Ava on the street, beaten and bloody. He tries to help Ava deal with what happened to her, while trying to heal himself.
Soon, they fall in love, but the fact that Lucas is a detective doesn't sit well with Ava's family and friends and Lucas hidden past also threatens their relationship. Will they help each other heal? Will their new found love survive?




Pandemonium's story is fantastic! It has everything a MC romance must have and more. It is gritty and raw, very emotional and with very hot scenes. Pandemonium takes the reader in a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
I loved how the book was written, with Lucas' POV mostly being is past and Ava's POV the present.

Ava is a very strong young woman. She went through a lot but didn't want to hurt her family, especially her father, with the truth about what really happened to her. She is very stubborn and knows what she wants but also very down to earth. I loved her relationship with her family and friends.
Lucas is so swoon worthy! He went through something a father should never go through but he was able to fight back and move on, even though he didn't believe he would be happy again. He is so fierce and protective, but also very kind and gentle with Ava. Swoon!
I loved reading about Addison, Cade, Spike, Ciara, Serenity, and Jackson again! I missed them!
I also loved meeting the kids and the little glimpses about their stories.




Once again, Bella Jewel wrote an amazing book, with a fantastic story and awesome characters. Her writing style is great and you'll want to read the book in one sit.
I can't wait to read the rest of this series!
