~ REVIEW: Imperfect Truth by Ava Harrison ~

indexSynopsisI’m a blogger. He’s a writer.
He was my weakness.
I was his muse.

Once upon a time my marriage was built on love…
Until it wasn’t.

Where had we gone wrong?
I had given up hope…

But then he messaged me,
And his words intoxicated me.
Made me believe in love again.

Made me believe in truth.
My imperfect truth…

daniell review 5 star aAva is unhappily married to Alexandre, a man she once loved but now feels nothing but contempt for.  She is a stay at home wife who is ignored day and night.  However, she has found something to be passionate about: book blogging.  She has amassed a large following of fans and authors and is even getting noticed by magazines.  Due to being so popular, she thinks nothing of a friend request from a popular, intriguing author, Ryder Matthews, and accepts the request.

At first the messaging between Ava and Ryder is professional, although Ryder is a bit flirty.  But with Ava’s constant loneliness, the attention she has been craving from her husband, she is suddenly finding with Ryder. As things become more personal online, Ava meets Ryder face to face at a fundraiser event and the chemistry is undeniable. He says all the things she has been longing to hear and seems equally enchanted with her but won’t allow himself to act on his feelings while she still belongs to another man.

Will Ava give up her marriage, which is essentially over anyways, to embrace what Ryder is offering?  Read this wonderful story to find out!

As someone who has formed online friendships relating to books, I could totally feel the realness of this story.  I sympathized with Ava and her loneliness in her marriage to Alexandre. I understood the decisions she made based on her need for attention and someone to care about her and her happiness.  I was also intrigued by Ryder and as an author, he had such a way with words and mesmerizes Ava.  I hated Alexandre at times and found myself begging for him to just pay attention to Ava, even a little bit.  I truly was on the roller coaster with Ava throughout this book and loved all the twists and turns.  Amazing debut novel by Ava Harrison!! I am definitely a fan and look forward to reading more from her in the future.

 Synopsis

Fed up with her comfortable and dull-to-boredom life, Liv takes the bravest leap, leaving it all behind. Unfortunately the crux of her issues – her entrenched, well-kept emotional guard – tags along for the ride.

With the spirit of change burning from every pore and a determined plan to break free from her self-oppressed lifestyle to enjoy life’s simplest pleasures, she moves half way across the globe to a peaceful Spanish coastal town.

With an aim to feel whole again, liberated and happy by herself, Liv begins her journey while maintaining weekly-cyber therapy sessions with her long time, questionable shrink.

As Liv finally begins to enjoy her new life and experience the varied goods the exotic country has to offer, a sudden major turn leads Liv to be swept into the most tantalizing roller coaster of her life.

A turn that leaves her questioning everything she thought was right.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Excerpt

“A warm shiver trails from the very top of my arms all the way to my toes as his hands gently move to hold my shoulders. Slowly, they trail down, rising my skin in their wake. My breath is held and everything inside me springs tight when his body presses just enough for mine to absorb his warmth and to feel the firmness that I recently learned is part of him. He brushes my hair over my shoulder with his chin. A tidal wave of heat spirals below my waist once his warm, minty breath hovers closely, and his bristled cheek softly grazes my flushed one.

He halts for a long moment.

“What are you doing?” I croakily breathe.

“Waiting for you to stop me.” His voice is rasp and low and reaches to every single part of my alert body.

My heart and mind speed at a hazardous velocity while I struggle for my next move. The last thing I want is for him to stop. I don’t say a word but blatantly press back against him, resting my head on his drumming chest. It’s less of a spoken consent and more of a silent agreement. Whatever is starting between us is happening nonetheless, with my undeniable blessing.”

SynopsisShe’s Holding on Tight.

As a teen, Dawn Delgado ran from a life on the streets straight into the arms of Jimmy “Mad Dog” Sanchez, a biker who promised to be her knight in shining armor. But his love was just another cage. Ten years later, Dawn is determined to start over again—and be the kind of woman, and mother, she was meant to be. Could it be that Cade “Ryder” O’Connor, a member of a rival club, is the answer to her prayers?

Will He Give Her the Ride of Her Life?

A loyal member of the Sinner’s Tribe, gritty outlaw Cade is another hard-living, hard-riding biker who’s willing to sacrifice everything that defines him—because that’s what losing the cut means.

Or will she arrive at yet another dead end?

beyond the cut live
Excerpt“We never danced before,” she said softly. Her breath was sweet, citrusy, and he was tempted to lick that sugar from her lips, but uncertainty held him back.

“We never did a whole lot of anything before except fuck.” Exactly what he wanted to do now. And afterward, maybe they could talk, or do what couples did, although never having really been part of a couple, he didn’t know what that would be. Watch TV? Go for a ride? Fuck some more?

“Maybe that’s ’cause that’s all we’re good for together.”

That gave him pause. Yes, he enjoyed sex with Dawn, but he genuinely liked her. She was smart, sweet, sensitive, and funny. She had more grit and determination than anyone he’d met, working three jobs, putting up with Shelly-Ann, never giving up hope she’d get her girls back. He wanted to spend more time with her, but she was always running away.

“Well, we gotta have something together, because now you’re wearing my cut and there’s no turning back.” He brushed his fingers through her beautiful long, blond hair. They had that in common. But Dawn was soft, where he was hard. Curved where he was straight. Sweet where he was bitter.

“If you’d told me three weeks ago I’d be in a biker bar, dancing with a biker and wearing a cut, I’d never have believed you. This was the last thing I ever thought I wanted. Me. A biker’s old lady again.”

His old lady. He liked the sound of it. He liked watching the words on her lips, tumbling over the silky softness and into his heart. Three weeks ago, sitting in his booth at Peelers with Delilah in his lap, he never would have believed he’d have an old lady. “Say it again.”

She licked her lips, and the sight of her little pink tongue made him hard.

“Old lady.”

“My old lady. Say it.”

Dawn studied him for a minute, considering. “Yours.” She leaned up and kissed him and he lost the last threads of his control.
