EXCERPT

 

“We need to keep moving, I don’t have time to explain this over and over to you. I can’t penetrate your naive little brain any more than I have.” His Adam’s apple bobs, and he grips my cuffs, pulling me after him.

“Why do you have to be such an asshole!?” I yank back on the cuffs to get his attention.

Looking over his shoulder, he jabs, “I guess you just bring it out in me, Rookie.”

That stung.

We walk for what seems like forever, and not one car drives by. The moon is high in the sky, and the wind is beginning to blow with a chill that has me shrinking into myself to keep warm.

My emotions are a mess. I don’t know what to accept as truth, and what is a lie. I’m always so sure of everything, until Zeek walked in my life. Now, I know nothing about nothing.

A shiver trembles from my lips causing my teeth to clatter. Zeek looks over his shoulder and stops.

“You cold?”

“I’m fine.”

Ignoring me, he shimmies his leather cut off.

“Here, this will help.”

I shake my head and hold my cuffed hands up.

“No, really I’m fine.” The last thing I want is to wear the insignia of the club that just offed one of my family members.

His face hardens, his eyes narrowing in on me.

He grips my upper arm turning me forcefully, and places the warm leather on my back. The smell of cologne, worn leather, and a hint of mint cocoon me in a blanket of danger. I find it comforting, the lingering scent a warning of adventure and risk. It’s no surprise I crave an adrenaline rush, and Zeek is a non-stop high.

Peering up under my lashes I catch Zeek looking me over hungrily, the look in his eyes anything but earnest. They’re hooded and trailing up and down my body unforgivingly.

Finley (Sunset Cove Series #1)

AMAZON US | AMAZON Universal

Finley-EllaFrank-CustomDesign-JayAheer2016-WM-Ebook-finalimage

It’s time to come home, Finn.

It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.

Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.

On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.

Six words will forever change the course of their lives.

Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.

Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.

Nothing is as simple as it seems.

After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.

Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.

The law said I was a runaway.
I preferred the term survivor.
After being broken down and emotionally tortured for fifteen years, I made a choice to change the path that my life was on.
It left me alone, homeless and scared, but alive.
The streets were where I found my family. A group of kids like me who society had failed to protect.
We weren’t teenagers anymore – we were a statistic, a nuisance, the scum on the bottom of the city’s shoe.
When he showed up that night, I never expected to feel the things I did.
He was honest and protective and he saw straight through the hardened exterior that I had created.
He made me want to fight for something better.
I could run, go back to the street and continue risking my life just to live.
But now, being offered something more, I wasn’t sure if I could go back without at least a taste of what it was like.
We came from two completely different worlds, but they were about to collide. And I was about to learn that maybe the grass really wasn’t that much greener on the other side.

Title: Fatal
Series: Portland Street Kings #2
Author: Evie Harper
Genre: Contemp Romance w/ Suspense
Release: March 30, 2016

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mackson King’s past is a dark, horror-filled chasm that could swallow the toughest, most dangerous men. A member of the notorious Portland Street Kings, he’s impossible to intimidate—but he can be hurt. He learned that the hard way, thanks to her. Lana. The one woman capable of easing his nightmares, of soothing his demons, was the very woman who shredded his heart. She took away his torments, only to become one of them.

 


 

Born into a family who lost their way long before she arrived, Lana Scavello has carefully enforced a steely interior that shields her heart from harm. But that doesn’t mean she can’t cry, and she’s spared Mackson King more tears than he ever deserved. Finding Lana at her most vulnerable, saving her when she felt the most invisible, he burrowed beneath her defenses to carve his own personal door to her soul. Only to decimate it, along with everything she’d ever known.

 


Now, years later, fate has thrown the couple together once more. Pain, heartbreak and betrayal will explode to the surface, leaving both of them raw, aching, exposed. And that’s when their true love story begins…

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Josie's review

 

5 stars

 

I absolutely loved Collision and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this next installment.  Fatal picks up right where Collision left readers off, but this time we focus on Mack and Lana.  As with the first book, Fatal’s prologue starts off with a heart stopping suspenseful scene and from there on it never ends.  I absolutely love how this author continues this series with two different characters yet manages to keep up with the very chaotic and violate rivalry between Scavello’s and the Kings.

 

The Portland Street Kings are bound together not only by blood but also by their loyalty and trust.  Mack and Lana’s relationship starts off years ago before the rivalry even existed between the two families. And let me tell you it was nothing but pure, innocent and beautiful.  I loved how the author is able to take readers back to a time to a place where things were not hectic in their lives, back to a time when these kids were just kids.  Mack and Lana’s relationship was one that developed through friendship where the two shared a very unique bond.  However, due to a horrific and violent incident the once lovers are now sworn enemies.

 

Lana’s life with her father was difficult and seriously, that is really putting it lightly.  When we are taken back to the past, we see firsthand just how cruel and vicious her father truly was.  My heart broke for this young version of Lana. She was constantly being demeaned and mistreated by her father, but despite those vicious times in her life, she was able to find comfort and love with Mack, even if it was for a short time.  It was hard to watch what happens to this young girl after things changed for her and Mack.  The years have given Lana a much needed push to become a stronger person, but she is still helpless, full of pain and huge loss.  Fate once again will put Mack and Lana together again and Lana will now have to face some hard truths that she has chosen to ignore.

 

Mack as we all know is a King.  And for a King family comes first.  He never once thought he would lose Lana in the process, but what also hurt was her betrayal.  Mack is just like his brother Slater.  He is an alpha male, tough, dominant and loving.  Over the years no other woman came close to owning his heart, like Lana did and still does.  We see him struggle to get over his anger and the sting of Lana’s betrayal. He doesn’t want anything to do with her, but he fails miserably.  He is controlling and caring and has to be in her presence somehow.

 

I loved the connection Lana and Mack had.  They were prefect for each other. Together they balanced each other out.  The couple and the Kings have a lot going on, besides trying to move past the betrayal, hurt and trust.

 

Ms. Harper writes a vivid and multifaceted story that adds fascinating characters to her story line that as a reader I could not help but connect with and fall in love with.  Fatal is not just about a romance and street life, it is also about these characters that will fascinate you.  These kinds of characters only help to make this story more enthralling and engaging.  Lana and Mack and the Kings have so much drama thrown at them in Fatal, but it was nice to see that the characters never once gave up on each other.    Oh my word, and leave it to Ms. Harper to reveal more secrets, more danger and another possible love story.  I can’t wait to get my hands on the next chapter of this series, because from where we left out, one story finally closed but there is another one front and center and I just need to have it.

Synopsis

“What he doesn’t realize is the girl he remembers doesn’t exist anymore.” -Lily

Goose calls her Little Bird. But the love of Lily’s life has no idea why the nickname describes her so perfectly. He doesn’t know who she really is, and that their first meeting wasn’t a happy twist of fate, but an elaborate plan that’s been years in the making.

But then lies do what they always do. They pile up, like feathers in her hands, and one by one they all fall.

 

As Road Captain for the Harbingers of Chaos Motorcycle Club, Goose is an expert at spotting potential danger from miles away. He’s also a living and breathing lie detector.

And yet…when a new little bird dances her way into his life, the vast threat she poses to his club slips right past his radar. He’s too distracted by the color of her lips, and her not so subtle curves, to see her for what she is.

A little lyrebird.

A ghost that’s haunted him for years.

And ultimately, his downfall.

“She says she’s not the girl I remember. I’m not so sure.”-Goose

excerpt

“Perfect Rage”

Excerpt Copyright © 2016 by Nashoda Rose

The porch boards creaked behind me. I spun, but not fast enough and a hand clamped over my mouth. I was yanked backward to land against a hard chest then dragged into the darkness of the far corner of the porch where the light failed to illuminate and a tree concealed us from the street.

My scream came out muffled and barely audible.

“Shhh,” he murmured against my ear.

Connor?

His warm breath wafted over the side of my neck and goose bumps popped along my skin. But it wasn’t from fear, well maybe a little, but it was more an awareness. Like my body awakened to his touch.

“They put a man on you.”

Ernie. He’d seen Ernie. Connor managed to get by an ex-navy SEAL. It shouldn’t surprise me. He excelled at being invisible. But the question was had Ernie seen him?

“He’s good. Took two hours before I had the chance.” And he’d always been patient. “You going to stay quiet if I remove my hand?”

I did my best to nod, but his grip on me was constricting and I only managed a slight dip of my chin. His hand slid from my mouth to the curve of my neck where his fingers enclosed, not harsh, but with purpose.

His rough whisper rumbled, “Can’t leave yet. Tried to. Bike found its way back here.” His body stiffened. “I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.”

Oh, God. I squeezed my eyes shut as tears pooled. I was uncertain what he’d do to me right now. He was on edge, but I couldn’t stop the overwhelming need to curl into his arms and take his pain away.

His body stiffened and his forearm across my breasts squeezed. I whimpered under the pressure, but didn’t struggle.

“I’m sorry. Fuck, I’m so sorry about your family, sweet-baby.”

My breath locked and a tear teetered then fell. Wetness trailed down my cheek. I hadn’t heard him call me that in eleven years and it was as if I were back there with him, falling in love all over again.

His fingers splayed on my neck gently applied more pressure. It wasn’t restricting, but it was controlling and I knew he’d easily cut off air if he wanted to. But I trusted that Connor would never willingly hurt me.

It was the graze of his lips on the edge of my jaw that sent my heart rocketing and my belly into a perpetual whoosh. Confusion and desire clashed as my body and mind fought against one another.

“You should’ve chosen me,” he murmured.

I had chosen him. Everything I’d done was me choosing him. But that wasn’t what he was talking about.

“You should’ve chosen me,” he repeated then nibbled on the lobe of my ear, his teeth grazing the sensitive skin. “Why? Why didn’t you kill me instead?”

 

“Perfect Rage”

Coming Soon.

Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.

Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she’s done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There’s only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.

Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.

Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally’s best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He’d do anything for Sal–even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she’s “more than pretty,” and expertly kissing her at parties.

The problem: Sally’s been in love with Becks all her life–and he’s completely clueless.

This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question:

Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?

EXCERPT

 

Gently, Becks placed his hand on top of mine.

     I didn’t jump this time, but my body was like a live wire, lit up from the inside.

     “Jeez,” Becks said quietly, running the tips of his fingers up and down my arm.  “You’re shaking, Sal.”

     Mortified, I looked down to see that he was right.  Every time his fingers passed a certain place on my skin, gooseflesh appeared first followed by a tiny quiver.

     “Sorry,” I said, completely at a loss.

     As much as I tried, I couldn’t command myself to not react. Why was my body betraying me like this?  Didn’t it realize that if Becks saw how much I loved his touch, how much it moved me, he would know?

     Just as I feared it might already be too late, he said, “This isn’t working.”  Removing his hand, he sat back, shaking his head.  “I don’t know why I freak you out so much, but we need to try something different.”

     I was a lot of things, but “freaked out” was definitely not one of them.

     “Here,” he said, moving a bit closer.  “You do me.”

Synopsis

He’s gorgeous.

He’s reckless.

And he’s every woman’s dirty fantasy in the state of California.., except one… Quinn Ashby.

Recent graduate of Penn and top of her class, Quinn is whip smart, ambitious and interning as the new marketing coordinator for the Bexley Bruisers American Hockey League team. The last thing she needs is to waste her time on guys…especially one as lethal to her focus as Cash Brooks.

But once the bad boy hockey star tempts her into his world, threatening her professional future, she’s forced to decide whether to let him into her heart…or to leave him behind forever.

 

 
 

 

Josie's review

 

4.5 stars

 

Oh my word, this book was just simply amazing!  You know when you read a book that leaves you feeling speechless and you can’t express fully what you feel, that is how I feel at this very moment.  Perfect Sense is the perfect mix of angst, romance, drama, secrets, laughs and two strong loving complexed characters.  The story itself is very engaging from the very start to the very last page. Once I started this book I could not stop. 

 

Quinn was the perfect Heroine.  She is so strong, determined and focused.  She is witty and not easily swayed, which is why when she first meets Cash she does not fall for his charms.  Quinn turned him down at every turn, and let me tell you the man bought his A game, but it did not work for Quinn.  Quinn knew his game, his reputation proceeded him and she was not going to be just another notch on his bed post. 

 

What follows is a funny game of cat and mouse. The banter between Cash and Quinn was so refreshing.  Cash saw something different in Quinn and he was determined to get her.  Once Cash gains Quinn’s trust, what followed was one steamy, heavy and intense relationship.  Quinn was an open book and she held nothing back where Cash was concerned, but sadly that was not the case with Cash.

 

We do not get Cash’s POV in this story, but we do get to see his desperation and need for Quinn through the writing.  The distrusting and insecure people they are today are the results of their traumatic pasts and that really broke my heart for them.  Cash choice not to open completely to her really caused some issues between them. He knew that once his truth came out he would lose Quin forever and that was something he could not tolerate.  When the ugly truth and Cash’s insecurities comes head on, Quinn is forced to make some life changing decisions.  Will Cash lose Quinn forever?  Will Quinn be able to see past Cash’s lies and secrets and forgive him? 

 

I really loved this story. I’d definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait to see what the author brings out next.

Lucas Barnett and Gabriel Stewart didn’t have it easy as kids. They were only trying to deal with bad situations at home when they became lifelines for each other. Their pipe dream was to someday meet in LA, where Lucas would design skyscrapers, and Gabriel would learn to fly. But then Gabriel disappeared without so much as a goodbye, and Lucas got himself in trouble with the law.

Five years later, both men are at a loss when they run into each other at a Hollywood bar. Lucas is still angry, but it’s not as if Gabriel could control how his mind and body had betrayed him. Being found on the ledge of that bridge had changed everything.

The attraction is immediate, but it’s more than their inability to keep their hands off each other. Neither man expects the fierce connection pulling them together. Unfortunately, ignoring their problems doesn’t make them disappear. Gabriel’s internal struggles are serious…dangerous. And no matter how much Lucas wants it to be true, saving Gabriel won’t make up for not being able to save his mom. If they don’t find the strength to face their own demons before the darkness takes hold, they risk more than just losing each other forever.

EXCERPT

 

I grab a piece of pizza and we finish the whole box, while drinking soda and watching a horror flick on TV. With each minute that passes, Gabe gets closer to me. It’s not one of those lame-ass things you see in movies, where the distance keeps shrinking while they get the balls to make a move. I just think Gabe craves contact—skin and flesh and warmth. And even though I’m not typically like that, I suddenly want to give it to him. Or maybe I’m just a selfish bastard and I’m fooling myself because I really just crave him.

So I do it, blatantly just move closer. Our legs touch, jeans against jeans. Our arms though? That’s skin against skin and I think maybe I really do crave skin and flesh and warmth the same way he does. At least when it’s him, I do.

The movie ends, and out of the corner of my eye, I see his head turn. Feel his gaze on me.

I want to taste him.

Me taste him. I’ve felt his lips twice and both times were both Gabe’s doing. This time it’ll be mine. I turn to him, touch his cheek with my left hand, let his hair slide through my fingers and then grab on.

Then I’m leaning forward, my tongue at the seam of his lips. Gabe opens up for me and I thrust my tongue inside. The feel of him, the taste of him goes straight to my head—both my dick and the one on my shoulders.

He moans into my mouth as I push closer to him. Reading my body language, Gabe turns, lies down so that he’s on his back and I’m between his legs, leaning over him.

My dick aches. I feel his, hard and thick against my stomach as I kiss him deeper.

“I can’t believe you’re here,” I say as my lips slide down his neck. I can’t believe I just said that either.

Gabe’s hand tightens in my hair and his hips move, as he rubs his erection against me.

“I can’t believe it either.” He’s breathless, his voice hoarse with lust. It rocks through me and I suddenly want nothing more than to see what he looks like when he comes.

Once upon a time, I lived in New York City and was a wardrobe stylist. I spent my days shopping for photo shoots, getting into cabs, eating amazing food, and drinking coffee at my favorite hangouts.

Now I live in the Midwest with my husband and son—my two favorite guys. I’ve been a clinical social worker and a special education teacher. But it wasn’t until I wrote a weekly column for the local newspaper that I realized I could turn the fairytales inside my head into the reality of writing fiction.

I write Adult, New Adult, and M/M Contemporary Romance. I’m addicted to lip gloss and salted caramel everything. I believes in true love and kissing, so writing romance novels has become a dream job.
