Just call him a rule breaker…

Zephyr Donovan knew the sacred rule. Never date a student. With the demons in his past, all he wanted was a fresh start. He wasn’t looking for trouble. But trouble tasted so damn good.
There are reasons for the rules…

Malia Adams had a complicated life. Well, actually it was pretty simple. Survive. Stay off the streets by any means necessary. And that was a nightly struggle. She didn’t have time to get involved with anyone.

Especially not the one person she can’t have.

All he needs to do is stay away. All she needs to do is forget him. Too bad that was all easier said than done.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

4.5 STARS

I’m completely new to the Donovan clan, so I wasn’t sure what to expect after reading the synopsis, except that it sounded like it would be a great book, and it was! I loved every minute of it!

Zephyr Donovan has had a really bad year. He witnessed something that no one should ever have to see. Because of it, he has nightmares, and he carries a huge amount of guilt. When he gets a once in a lifetime chance, he grabs onto it, never realizing how it will completely change his life.

Malia has also fallen on hard times, but she refuses to give up. She has her little sister to take care of. She works several jobs, and now, she finds herself pretty much on the street. She has come too far to just give in, so she forges ahead. She has been selected to be a part of a project, and if she wins, she will have a dream job with the firm that is in charge of the project. She is determined nothing will stop her….that is…until Zephyr enters into the picture.

Zephyr and Malia meet one night at a faculty function. There attraction to one another is instant and powerful. As much as Malia wants to give in and be a normal college student, she can’t. They meet again and share a powerful kiss, but imagine their shock when she finds out he is her mentor. They are, of course, shocked and agree a relationship is off-limits, but the heart wants what it wants.

Both Zephyr and Malia are unbelievably strong characters. He is a survivor, and everyday can be a struggle for him. Malia is incredible, the lengths she goes to protect her sister just made me love her even more.

Despite their powerful attraction to one another, Malone developed their romance slowly which made it all the more realistic. As much as this was a romance, it was also a journey of self-discovery of who Zephyr and Malia were. They really completed one another.

Malone added some twists that I didn’t see coming, and they made the book even better. I loved the Donovan clan. They are the perfect example of what a family should be. I can’t wait to get to know more about the other characters in the earlier books. The epilogue was a work of genius, setting readers up for the next book in the series!

Author Bio

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone.

Elite (A Privileged Novel) by Carrie Aarons Cover Reveal

 

 

Title: Elite

A Privileged Novel

Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Sarah Hansen, Okay Creations

Release Date: February 18, 2018
Blurb
If you’re in, you’ll never have to ask. If you ask,
you’ll never be in.

Eloise Mason knows what it’s like to live among the privileged. Seeking a
change from the upper crust society of Europe, she flies halfway across the
world for a semester abroad in the one place guaranteed to toss responsibility
out the window and provide some good, old-fashioned fun; college in The United
States.

Except nothing at the picturesque, Ivy-covered university in Vermont appears as
it seems. And after a mysterious invitation arrives on her doorstep, curiosity
wins over the need to turn her back on games meant for the rich and ruthless.

Secret societies, risky tasks, and an inner circle to rival the royals. But it
may just be one American boy who threatens to be the most dangerous endeavor of
all.

Colton Reiter defines the word idolized at Jade Mountain University. In fact,
he practically rules the roost from the three point line of the basketball
court. The college’s star point guard, he is a god and treated as such;
professional scouts at every game, teachers looking the other way when it comes
to grades, and girls falling into his lap at the snap of a finger. He wants for
nothing, or at least that’s what he wants everyone to believe.

But when he meets the sassy girl with the British accent who could care less
about his status, her very existence threatens to unveil the skeletons buried
deep in the back of his closet.

With stakes this high, and hearts on the line, can they turn their backs on
power and popularity before the ivory tower comes crashing down on their heads?

Escort.jpg

Escort by Skye Warren

Publishing Date: March 6th, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Photographer: Wander Aguiar

Model: Travis S.

There is no shame in pleasure. And no love in business.

I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I’m getting lucky. There shouldn’t be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L’Etoile, everything changes.

1) For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me.

2) Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more.

3) Except that . . . she’s a virgin.

I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can’t I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account.

Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I’m an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction.

But once I realize one night with her won’t be enough, I’m the one who’s screwed.

Escort will release LIVE on Amazon March 6th!
