Release Day: Surviving Amber Springs


Today marks the release of Surviving Amber Springs, a second chance reverse harem romance that will appeal to both reverse harem and contemporary romance readers alike. This book has everything you have come to expect from my work – twists and turns galore, tons of emotion and angst, drama and suspense, and a controversial story-line. PLUS, there is plenty of swoon-worthy romance and three times the male hotness to drool over!

I’m always nervous-excited with every new book launch, and I regularly tell my husband that the day I’m not is the day I’ve become complacent and should give up! But my anxiety today is a lot higher than usual because this is such a sensitive subject and I really hope everyone understands the message I’m trying to convey. Yes, this book is entertaining but I also hope it’s thought-provoking and insightful. I urge everyone to read the note at the start before reading as this book may cause triggers for some readers.

I’m enormously proud of every book I write, but this one has touched a special place in my heart and I hope it does that for you too.

Book Description:
Let him who is without sin cast the first stone…

I’m the second-most hated person in Amber Springs.

First place honors go to my twin, Ethan; however, hate isn’t a strong enough word to convey how people feel about him.

Not that I blame anyone—some days, I hate him too. Mostly, I’m just lost and afraid, drowning in a sea of betrayal and guilt, wondering how this happened right under my nose.

There’s no choice but to leave. To move clear across the country in a last-ditch attempt to start over.

Transferring to a new school midway through senior year is hellish for most people. For me, it’s a welcome relief—until someone discovers our secret and now everyone knows.

The pointing, whispering, and scathing looks follow me around again, and I’m back to square one. Except, this time, I’m not alone.

Axel, Skeet, and Heath took me under their wing from the minute I arrived here. I’ve no idea why three of the hottest guys in town took any interest in me or why they continue to have my back, but I’m so grateful to have them in my corner.

Because, right now, they’re the only reason I’m not following my brother into an early grave.

Due to sensitive content, and possible triggers, this book is recommended to readers aged 18+. Full length novel.

Book Trailer

Excerpt

“You go first,” Axel says in a whisper on the landing, thrusting a fluffy white towel into my arms.
I channel my inner seductress, narrowing my eyes and licking my lips. “We could always shower together.”
He pushes me into the wall, caging me between his arms while leveling a dark gaze on me. “Showering won’t be all we’re doing if I go in there with you,” he warns, his voice rough and husky.
“Why do you think I suggested it?”
His lips descend on mine, and he kisses me deeply. I pant into his mouth, clutching at his waist, pulling him flush against me. The evidence of his arousal, prodding my stomach, coils my insides into delicious knots, and I’m already so wet for him. I whimper when he suddenly pulls back. “Are you sure, Blaire?” His eyes examine mine carefully. “I thought you needed space.”
I was right. He was purposely ignoring my wishes, yet I can’t find it in me to criticize him for it. Not when he seems to know what I need better than I know myself. “I do.” I sigh. “I don’t. I … I don’t know.”
“And that’s exactly why we shouldn’t.” He kisses my cheek, moving to step away.
“No.” I fist my hand in his shirt, pulling him back into me. “I need to feel … something real.” My eyes convey every emotion racing through me. “Please, Ax. I just … I just need you.”

Review: The Chase (Briar U #1) by Elle Kennedy

Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.

And that his best friend has a crush on me.

And that I just moved in with them.

Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates?

I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I’m not about to start. I’ve got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he’s missing?

He knows where to find me.

My Review:
FLOVED. Loved the Off Campus series and have been patiently waiting for this new spin-off series and it didn’t disappoint. Loved Summer and Fitz from the original series and it was so great to read their romance. Adored all the cameos from Dean, Garrett, and Tucker, but wish we had gotten some Logan! Can’t wait for Breanna’s story and my money’s on Jake Connelly being the guy but I’m wondering if she’s going to throw us a curveball instead as he’s not a Briar hockey player so I think Elle has something up her sleeve … can’t wait until Feb to find out what!

Review: Crave Me (The Good Ol’ Boys #4) by M. Robinson

They say in order to find yourself you have to go home.
What if home was what you’re running from?
Where did that leave you?

Always on the other side of the fence.
Always looking in.
Always wishing you were someone you couldn’t be.

Until one day you meet her.
The one.
She was my high, but she was also…
My demise.

STANDALONE within a series. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Strong language and themes, and sexual content, not intended for readers under 18. This is a Full Length Novel.

My Review:
For me, this was, hands down, the best book in the series. It was also the darkest and some of it was difficult to read but I still couldn’t put it down. The author handled the addiction story line perfectly and though I had periods where I hated both mains, my heart hurt for them more than anything. Their chemistry seeped off the pages of my Kindle and I shipped them so hard. I felt every emotion with them and I was hooked from the first page to the very last.

I really felt for Austin, and I was disgusted with Lucas, Dylan, and Jacob in parts, as well as his parents. The only one who ever listened to him growing up was Half Pint. His self destruction and loathing after the accident was palpable and watching his demise was heart wrenching. Thankfully, it ends in a happy place.

It was great to catch glimpses of the other characters and I like how all the storylines tie in with previous books. All in all, this was a great series and one I recommend. The author has created a great set of characters I became very invested in, and I loved all the angst and drama too. Ticked a lot of the boxes for me!

To the reader who suggested it on my Inseparable product page – thank you! I would, most likely, not have discovered this book or this author otherwise.

Review: One Small Thing by Erin Watt

Blurb:
Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, she’s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems a small thing, just for her.

Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is…

Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth’s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.

Now Beth has a choice to make—follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apart…again.

My Review:
I’m a massive Erin Watt fan and the blurb for this new book sucked me right in. I love a good forbidden romance and this was very close to perfection. Poor Beth. My heart bled for her. She was a great combination of vulnerability and strength. Chase was amazing, and I really felt for him. I was screaming at my Kindle at the abusive treatment he endured. The romance was a little too light for me with this one, and I hated that every single authority figure seemed to think it was okay to bully a boy who had already served his punishment. Other than that, I loved every bit of it and I think the authors did a wonderful job portraying the grief and torment in an authentic fashion. I also really enjoy Erin Watt’s style of writing and the pacing flowed beautifully, so much so that I stayed up until 4 a.m. reading this in one sitting. Highly recommended, especially if you are already a fan of this talented duo.

The edgy, angsty, addictive YA/NA crossover series from L. A. Cotton continues…

They thought the fight was over…

All Maverick Prince ever wanted was to play basketball in college. So starting for the Steinbeck Scorpions should be a dream come true. But not everyone wants to see him succeed. Just because you’re on the same team, doesn’t mean you play by the same rules.

Lo Stone thought her life was finally on an even keel. As if being a senior and having to think about her future isn’t bad enough, she’s a stranger in her own house. And the longer she goes without seeing Maverick, the harder it is to ignore the little voice of doubt whispering in her ear.

They thought the games were over, but the war is only just beginning…

My Review:
Another amazing addition in this highly addictive series. I just love Lo and Rick. They are right up there with Sam and Mason and Ella and Reed in my opinion. New antagonists combine with familiar ones to add suspense and tension, and Lo has to dig deep to find inner strength and finally overcome her demons, in this latest installment. I’m very intrigued by Macey now and I look forward to her story. Kyle was hysterical as usual. All in all, another fab read.

Thanks to the author for providing an ARC of this book which I am voluntarily reviewing.

My Review:
FLOVED. This was an incredible start to a captivating rock star romance series. I’ve been on a rock star romance bingeathon the last few weeks and I’ve read lots of the bestselling, most-popular series’, and I’ve got to say this series is my ABSOLUTE FAVE. If you like angsty, swoony romance set within the backdrop of a traditional rock star scene, then I think you will ADORE this series.

I love, love, love Noah, and Mel is a great MC. The other guys in the band are equally intriguing as are all the secondary characters. This satisfied my angst-loving drama-loving heart to the max. I knew it was moving toward a key traumatic moment and it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through reading – I kept thinking when is it going to happen and what exactly is going to happen? I’m about to find out.

Review: Finding My Way (Beaumont #4) by Heidi McLaughlin

Blurb:
Liam Westbury has the world at his feet. He’s the quintessential golden boy. He’s the superstar quarterback for Beaumont High. His girl, Josie, is head cheerleader. He has his choice of colleges just waiting for him. Except he’s suffocating from all the pressure he’s under and no one understands.

Liam Page is the heartthrob he never wanted to be. He’s successful, smart and in demand by record companies and his adoring fans. Music is his passion, his love, but something’s missing. His nights are lonely and he longs for the girl he left behind. Seeing her in every face in the crowd haunts him with the knowledge that she hates him. Going home has never been an option until now.

Be there when Liam Westbury becomes Liam Page and follow the highs and lows of the Quarterback turned Rockstar as he finds a way back to Beaumont in this prequel to Forever My Girl.

My Review:
This was a great companion novel and it contained completely new material which was refreshing. I really came to understand Liam’s decision once I saw the backstory. I had read some of the reviews before starting, and was afraid I would hate him after reading this, but I didn’t. I actually really felt for him in the first half.

Mason’s decision was really shitty and while I had been looking forward to meeting him, he wasn’t a very good friend. He was mooning over Katelyn and no one else seemed to matter. I was hugely disappointed in Josie. She had complete blinkers on and she never asked her boyfriend what was wrong or made any effort to understand him. I actually came out of this thinking she doesn’t deserve him.

The second half of the story was difficult to read at times because I didn’t like seeing Liam with other women and I can’t understand how he could be in love with Josie for ten years and still sleep around so much. And he lied when he said in the first book that he had only enjoyed hook ups because he had a relationship with Sam. Hated reading that part and was glad it wasn’t too detailed.

There were a few timeline errors that bugged me, but that’s just a pet peeve of mine, and it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story. My only disappointment is I would have liked to have seen some of the reunion with Josie (especially the initial scenes and him learning about Noah) from his perspective, but overall it was a fantastic addition to the series.
