~ New Point by Olivia Luck Review ~

14 Oct

91uPlepe8pL._SL1500_SynopsisImagine the worst day of your life. Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?

Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.

So I hid.

Nine months later and I’m getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy.

Healing is that simple, right?

Wrong.

Note: New Point is the start of a standalone series with connected characters, but independent story lines.

daniell review4 starsZoe Baker has just moved to New Point, looking for anonymity and a fresh start from the hell she endured 9 months before. Zoe has come a long way since the worst day of her life but still has some healing to do to get back to “normal.”  She has a new job at the local library and is looking forward to starting a children’s reading camp.

Miles Wilson was born and raised in New Point. He owns the local hot spot, Blue in Green, and enjoys the single life. Or at least he has been until now, when he meets the lovely Zoe.

From the time Miles catches Zoe trying to break into her own house, sparks fly between the two. The chemistry is fantastic and they bring out the fun, playful side in each other. But Miles senses that Zoe is holding something back from him and he just wants to help. Zoe is fearful that once Miles knows, he will think less of her or pity her.

Will Zoe trust Miles with her past and allow herself to fully heal from the past? Or will her fears and silence them apart?

I really enjoyed this book! I liked both main characters and their banter, especially in the beginning was sweet and funny. I also really liked the secondary characters and look forward to reading their story as well. Most of this book is written from Zoe’s POV but there were a few pages of Miles’ POV. This book held my interest throughout! I look forward to reading more from this author!

Synopsis

The day I found my mother dead was the day I was set free. That might sound harsh but my mother was a drug addict. Had been since I was a baby. Pills were her salvation. Crack was her demise. I should have known though, even dead, my mother’s demons wouldn’t stop chasing me.

To the outside world, I’m a normal, twenty something year old woman – brown hair with caramel colored highlights, gray blue eyes and French manicured tips. What they don’t see are the map of scars etched into my skin or the barb wired wrapped around my heart. As the saying goes, it only takes one person to change your life. That person for me was Andrew.

From the moment we locked eyes, I was hooked. He was intriguing, a word that doesn’t get used lightly. Men were a dime a dozen, but Andrew – Andrew was special. I could tell in the way he spoke, passionately and without reservation. However, my type and his type didn’t mix. We were bound to explode yet I was powerless to the attraction between us. As our paths merge, secrets are revealed, past bleeds into present and danger lurks on the horizon.

Synopsis

What do you do when running away isn’t enough?

Lena’s problems have caught up with her. Both of them. Blake and Slade Finnegan.

Now that her secret is out, there’s no denying her feelings, for both of them.

There’s no escaping the Finnegan Brothers.

Excerpt

“Should we go again?”

She laughed, “Of course.”

“You’re so cute how you thought that was a question.” I watched as he took his hand and put it around the front of her neck pushing her down on the ground where he had laid his coat in the sand. She smiled devilishly at him. I could almost feel the lust rolling off of her skin. I felt my breath catch in my chest as he spread her legs open and started kissing his way down her stomach. It was like a train wreck, I knew I shouldn’t be watching but I couldn’t take my eyes away. He took his large hand and cupped her right breast and pulled slightly. I watched as he squeezed hard and her face displayed a mixture of pain and pleasure. He drug both his hands down her body and spread her legs open.

Abou the authorkahlen bio

I’m a single mother of one daughter, Olivia. She’s amazing in every way.

I was born in the Midwestern United States and educated at a private university where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Administration.

I’ve always been creative with art, music, theater and writing. I decided to write a story as a way to build a network for a business venture. The reader support of my stories and my overwhelming desire to find out where my characters would take me, soon had the writing morphing the business. No one was more shocked than I. When readers began nominating my work for online awards, it took my breath away and only made me love it more. It soon became clear that writing was, and should be, my focus.

FIX UP (Patch Up #2)
by Stephanie Witter
New Adult Contemporary Romance


Fix Up Cover

Fix Up on Goodreads: Fix Up (Patch Up, #2)
Synopsis
Saying “I love you” doesn’t erase the old scars and fears.  

“I love you to insanity. I’m not even sure if it’s a good thing.” — Duke  

Skye is trying to overcome what happened with Sean. Now that she’s slowly healing, both physically and mentally, she’s determined to do something she should have done sooner.  

She’s meeting twice a week with a new, very young therapist, Dr. Marshall.  


There, she’s able to talk freely, unwind, and question things. Most of the sessions she talks about herself and her hangups, along with her relationship with Duke, which is still on rocky ground.  

“I want to taste his sweat. I want to hear his groans. I want to feel him inside of me.” — Skye  

But while Skye is slowly getting back on her feet, Duke feels like he’s drowning. He’s afraid of pushing her too much, of initiating intimacy, and it’s weighing between them. Moreover, knowing that he’s not the one she’s talking to anymore is making him feel things he never thought possible.  

“It’s a matter of when I’ll stop fighting.” — Duke  

As days pass, Duke is showing over and over how vulnerable he truly is and how Skye has more power over him than she ever imagined.  

When Skye sees how they keep hurting each other, she’s determined to do everything in her power to make things right, no matter what the cost. 

But one thing is still sure; she can count on Duke whenever she needs him, even if they disagree and fight. When Duke loves, he loves with everything he’s made of, the good and the bad.  

“Loving her is confusing, making me afraid of myself and what I can do … because I can break us both.” — Duke

Synopsis
In Patch Up and Fix Up you had Skye and Duke’s story.
Now, it’s time for Derek and Kate to find their path.  He fights for the people he loves.  

She fights against love.  

Kate Andrews is starting her second year of college in Seattle. She is happy to leave Chicago and her dysfunctional family behind to be with her friends again. Growing up she thought that her parents’ loveless marriage was all her father’s fault, but that summer she discovered that things are so much more complicated in life and love. Her mother is bipolar. That doesn’t mean her father isn’t unfaithful, nor does he support her and her choices. Additionally, he isn’t a great father or husband, but it brings a new perspective in her life; the way she envisions love.  
Derek Williams graduated college a few months ago, and while he moved back in again with his single mother and teenage brother, he never thought that he would be struggling with two crappy jobs. He is not succeeding in either of his jobs or in his countless plans for the future. Instead, he’s trying to bring back his brother and set him on a straight path, while trying to avoid the wrong crowd hounding him, thanks to his brother. Together with fighting his mother on her lack of support in their family, this all has caused chaos.  

“Yes, my life is a fucking mess. I have nothing for that girl who deserves everything, and yet I still can’t just sit on my ass and wait for the next asshole to pursue her.‘’ — DEREK  
 
Both of them are very different. Their upbringing is opposite; their vision of love and life contrast, and yet …
“I want to open up to it, open up to the possibility of heartbreak even if I’m scared to death. I’m ready to change up.” — KATE  
They’re both still hung up on each other. They can’t forget that one night they shared months ago, can’t ignore their attraction and quickly maturing love. They match in every way that matters, but time and time again their respective families are getting in the way.  
“He’s the commitment kind while I’m anti-commitment.” — KATE  
Are they willing to fight for each other? Is Kate ready to risk her comfort and everything else for love? Is Derek prepared to chose which battles are worth fighting for?  
“It’s never been friendship, and it’ll never be.’’ — DEREK
