Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00014]

BLURB:

It was always bros before hoes—except when Josephine Faulkner got involved.

The saying had been obliterated for Maxwell Sheridan the moment he met her. His Josephine. She had become his everything without even trying. It’s too damn bad that Max broke her heart. Left her behind to seek redemption for his past mistakes. Life with Josie was perfect. He had found his La Vie En Rose … Or so he thought.

One moment outside her apartment building changed it all.

Josephine Faulkner’s world erupted with a single phone call. She became numb with a revelation, and her beliefs held no meaning the moment Maxwell Sheridan left her. Gone was the perfection she thought they had found together. All the good taken away by his decision.

But his goodbye wouldn’t destroy her.

Josie has more important things to worry about than the shattered pieces of her heart. Because not even Max can stop her from saying the one goodbye that means the very most.

The very last goodbye that will hurt her in ways Maxwell Sheridan couldn’t.

PLEASE NOTE: With the Last Goodbye is NOT a standalone novel. It is the conclusion to Maxwell and Josephine’s story, which begins in With the First Goodbye. You should read With the First Goodbye prior to reading With the Last Goodbye!

TLUndertheStarsBookCover5x8_BW_325

Under the Stars

All around us was darkness and night…

I’m not a hero. I’m a survivor.

I had one way out, and I took it.

Now all I want is peace,

A place to pick up the pieces and start over.

But she wants justice.

Names on a list, faces in the crowd.

I vowed to help her, but it’s taking us back to the demons.

Until he appeared.

I thought he died in the fight.

I was wrong.

He’s here.

Stronger, more powerful… Sexier.

And dangerous.

The boy I loved is now the one man we have to fear most.

When he tried to save me, he had no power.

Now everything has changed, and he’ll never stop until I’m his.

Excerpt:

~ Lara ~

We stop walking and turn to face the emerald waters. The briny air pushes her hair back and around her shoulders. Tendrils spin around my face, and the inescapable sorrow filters through my chest.

“I can’t do this anymore.”

“Yes, you can.” Her voice is flat, and she bends to put Pierre on the dry sand. “I’m going up. How much longer will you be out here? Celeste is making Quiche Lorraine for breakfast.”

Another sigh. “I’ll be up in a bit. I’m finishing my exercise.”

“Don’t stay out too long or I’ll eat all the food! Come, Pierre!”

I watch her run up the tall staircase, her little dog at her heels, thinking of the reasons she has to run. I remember her as a small girl on the street, in the dark alley behind the theater. She was thin and starving and hunched in the corner waiting to die.

She was so malnourished, I thought she was younger than her actual age, which was twelve. I remember carrying her inside and fighting with Rosa. I remember Rosa boxing my ears and telling me the first time that kid cried, she’d throw us both in the alley with the rats. I remember the terror I felt that night and Molly falling asleep so quietly with her head on my chest.

She needed me. She loved me, and I loved her fiercely in return.

I remember her running around the theater, a sweet and innocent kid never suspecting the hawk was circling above, watching her, closing in to steal her soul and warp her future. I’ll never forgive myself for what happened to her. I’ll never forgive myself for not being there to protect her.

A flash of pain moves through my stomach, and I remember someone saying the same words to me not so long ago…

Walking to the edge of the water, I look out at the surf, at the waves rushing in and out. I think about how nothing bad can happen here. The sins of the past are far, far away from this beautiful place.

Only it’s a lie.

The sins of the past are never far away.

We carry them with us in our hearts wherever we go.

No matter how far we run, we can never outrun ourselves.

Tears are in my eyes, and I blink them away. My emotions are so close to the surface these days. I squat and wrap my arms around my knees, holding my insides together and wishing…

My wishes never come true.

“Lara!” A strong male voice cuts through the breeze.

For a moment I don’t believe it. It’s a wish caught on the wind and carried away out to sea.

“Lara!” It’s louder this time, closer.

Nervous anticipation floods my chest. I stand and look up and over my shoulder. The staircase where Molly descended is empty. The one ahead of it is empty as well.

Was it a dream?

Another shout, and I realize it’s coming from behind me. Turning, I see a tall figure jogging down the steps. He’s alone, and he’s moving fast. I look around, and no one is here. I have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

My heart alternates between beating out of my chest and dying. I’m back on that train, seeing him for the first time out of the blue, completely caught off-guard, alternately panicking and rejoicing… He’s alive!

He’s wearing faded jeans and a plain white t-shirt. His caramel hair is a little longer, but not much. It moves in the breeze as he approaches me.

He’s strong and pure and gorgeous as ever, and the way we touched, our glorious reunion is stronger and hotter in my memory than the sun climbing higher in the sky.

I want to cry. I want to sing. I want to hold him…

But now everything has changed.

Review:

Talk about angst and tears. This is the emotional conclusion to With the First Goodbye and we get to find out what happens to Max and Josie. Josie just wants to be someone’s first choice and Max wants to get atonement from him past sins with his best friends.

The problem is, take those top two reasons and add in the fact that both Max and Josie love each other so much it is so hard to read about because it is about forgiveness and acceptance and overall a love so powerful that you can’t help the feelings and you can’t get rid of them either.

While this is NOT a standalone it does a great job picking up right where book 1 (or maybe book 5) left off. And you get all the emotions, and in fact, I recommend a box of tissues. But this is seriously an epic conclusion to a great duet. This is told in dual POV and again it jumps right in with the perfect amount of detail, angst and sweetness.

Review:

This book is a great example of showing that sometimes two people are better then one.  Lara had a knack for running away, especially from Mark to try to keep him safe…and yet, he was never going to let her go.  Time has passed since Under The Lights and yet, we see how much their love is still there and burning stronger then ever.  Mark really is her knight in shining armor and she is his Queen.  Their love is so fierce that nothing will ever stop those feelings.

This is the quest for revenge, and trying to right wrongs, and yet, we see this pure and in a way innocent love that Mark and Lara share.  Every character in this book is so well written and you can feel for them all even if you don’t agree with what they are doing.  Molly and Ronald are some great characters and as always give us additional insight.

This is written in dual POV which is my favorite and it does not disappoint.  This is how you know how much Mark and Lara mean to each other.  I would call this a dark book and yet their love is so bright it in a way overpowers the dark.  The author just sucks you into this world of revenge and love and redemption.

“All the sin, heat, and dirty underbelly that comes with it. I’m dying to read Under the Stars!” –Nora Flite, USA Today bestselling author

Under The Lights

Heroes don’t last long around here…

Fall in love with the sexiest girl in New Orleans?

Check.

Prepare to die for her?

Double-check.

Larissa is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.

She’s the rising star of the Pussycat Angels, the hottest burlesque show in the French Quarter.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw her.

The curve of her breast outlined by sparkling rhinestones.

Slim hips wrapped in black fishnets.

Long, dark hair…

She’s the Dark Angel who stole my heart.

Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.

Cat eyes and blood red lips.

Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.

I couldn’t keep my hands off her…

But her fame had a dark side,

A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.

I would do anything to save her…

He would do anything to see me dead.

Excerpt:

“You’re so good.” Her voice is soft, and she traces her finger along the bandage before lifting her blue eyes to meet mine. “Thank you for buying me lunch. For saving me…”

Without warning, she steps forward and wraps her arms around my waist, pressing her face against my chest, and I don’t hold back. She fits perfectly in my arms, and I inhale the sweet scent of her hair just before I press my lips to the top of her head.

Her voice is muffled against my shirt. “It feels so safe here.”

“Lara,” I whisper in her hair. “I want to keep you safe.”

She pulls back, and I loosen my hold. But she doesn’t leave. She puts her hand against my cheek, lifting her chin as she rises higher on her toes. Hell if I make her work for it.

Leaning forward, I capture her lips. They part, and our tongues meet, curling together as I hug her closer to me. She exhales a little noise, and her fingers thread in the sides of my hair. I trace a line with my lips to her ear.

“I want you so much,” I whisper.

She turns, searching for my mouth, and I kiss her. She fists my shirt in her hands, pulling it up and placing her palm against my bare stomach. I groan deeply, and my hands slide under her ass. I lift her against my chest, and her legs go around my waist. Our kisses are wildfire, fast-moving, lips pulling, hungry for something more. Something just within reach.

She moving subtly against my waist, and the blood rushes downward. I’m hard and she’s riding me, stroking my erection with her crotch.

“Lara,” I groan.

Her lips still, and she holds my cheeks, looking into my eyes. “That night on the catwalk… The way you looked at me…”

My brow collapses at the memory. “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

“I only want you to see me.”

Her lips are pink and swollen from my kisses. I lean forward and kiss her again, tasting her like she’s water in the desert. She exhales a little noise, and it’s a charge straight to my cock.

I love her lips. I love her mouth. I want more. I want all of her.

“Does your waist hurt?”

She leans forward, running her nose along my jaw. “Nothing hurts. Everything is amazing.”

Review:

A lot can happen from the very first page. Mark and Larissa have a very different journey in the world of “burlesque” dance/strip clubs….seedy is one way to say it. Mark and Larissa are both looking to get one foot up and yet, falling for someone else barely getting by isn’t how it was suppose to work for Lara. But Mark saved her and yet even before then there was something about him. This book has so many details and their initial feeling for each other is one of those things written in a way you knew that the other was someone special. One look was all it took. But twists and turns and other people’s ideas gave us a great story with more then just a romance.

Lara in some ways seems very naive, and yet, at times she doesn’t, and that confused me. I love her protectiveness of Molly as well. Roland may have good intentions and yet sometimes they come at the wrong time. But I still love his protectiveness. Mark has a past, but he is one that will instantly draw you and you can’t help but hope for the best for him.

I don’t feel like this is your typical romance, and that makes the book so much better, and while it does end with a cliffhanger, at least the wait isn’t too long for the next one. But the writing flows nicely, you get a great story that doesn’t leave out details and really sucks you in with that.

AM_RB_1

BLURB:

The highly anticipated conclusion of The Jaded Series, featuring the beloved Nick and the relentless Chris. Be prepared to experience an emotional roller-coaster of a life time!

What do you do when you lose the single most important thing in your life? You grieve. You sink so deep in a hole, you can no longer see the top. All you see is dark. Your life becomes dull and dreary. You withdraw from your friends, lash out at the ones you’re closest to, and become so absorbed in your pain, you feel the only way out is to end it permanently. Your heart no longer pumps properly and you can never get enough air in your lungs. You drink, you neglect your health, and you rent dirty hotel rooms with the sole purpose of ending your pain in them. Guilt eats at you for not being at the one place you were needed the most. And you become angry because you were left behind.

Or at least, that’s what I did. Until she came along…

Chris, the bane of my existence. She’s always there in the background, watching me, trying to ‘be there’ for me. But I don’t want her help. I don’t need her to butt in where she’s not wanted. I just want to be left alone in my dark world. But she’s not giving up, even when I’m a bastard to her. Every time I turn around, there she is. And what’s worse, she’s starting to make me want things. Things I never thought I could have again. She’s making me forget the pain and bringing color back into my life with her fiery red hair, bright green eyes, and the silly faces she makes at herself in the mirror. But what happens if I let her in? Could I be brave enough to open myself up, knowing the possibility of having it snatched away again. Once I know the feeling of touching Chris, of having her heart and soul blend with mine, I would never survive losing that.

Can I take the chance of her being my savior, even knowing that she could also be the one that could push me other the edge of self-destruction?

Awaken Me can be read as a stand alone, but it is HIGHLY recommended to read at least the first in the series, Shatter Me. Through Shatter Me, you will understand the emotional ties between Nick and Chris and why Nick is the way he is. Without reading Shatter Me, Nick’s behavior may seem too harsh for some readers. This is not a light read. Deals with mental abuse through extreme grief. Intended for readers 18+.

Review

What an amazing book to end this incredible series.  So many tears throughout this book and we still get some laughs and happy moments as well.  Nick is very closed off as you find as you read the other books in this series, and he is kindof a jerk, or rather REALLY a jerk to Chris.  I sometimes wished that she would have at least TRIED to move on…but she KNEW she and Nick had a bond and boy was she right.  Nick needed to move on with his life and yet he was stuck in his head and couldn’t help it, it was nice to finally see all of his thoughts.  The dreams were a very nice touch also of Anna, and gave us insight to the past.

This author finds a way to suck you into the world of these characters and makes you feel like you are one of them.  Then it ends and you feel this loss and you don’t know what to do with yourself.  The writing is consistent throughout the entire series and flows nicely even between the books.  This isn’t a stand alone though so should be reads after the other 3 books.

But again this is a series that will consume you and this is the end so needless to say it is way more emotional and you will be satisfied with the journey.
