BLURB

Face of an angel.

Body of a god.

And a mouth so dirty he could make the devil blush…

Fix Marcosa’s time can be bought with money, but he isn’t selling sex. Murderers, rapists, criminals: if you’re on the wrong side of Fix’s moral code, you’re in trouble. The kind of trouble that winds up getting you killed. As a hitman for hire, Fix is no stranger to violence. He’s merciless. Relentless. A true savage, down to the roots of his very soul. You can beg. You can plead. You can pray, but it won’t do you any good. Once the tall, dark stranger arrives at your doorstep, it’s already too late to repent.

Sera Lafferty’s no stranger to heartbreak. With an abusive father and a dependant sister, her life has been one of sacrifice and compromise. As soon as she sets eyes on Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa, she recognizes the darkness in him and makes a vow: she will not get involved. But trapped inside a motel room with the sexiest man to ever walk the earth? Throw in some tequila and the storm to end all storms, and Sera finds herself worshipping at the altar of Marcosa.

She knows she made a mistake.

She knows she needs to run.

But when she witnesses the assassin at work first hand, she knows it’s far too late. Thrown into the back of his sleek black ride, Sera finds herself trapped, and in more way than one. Fix is deadly. He’s demanding, he’s dirty, and he’s determined to claim her for his own.

P.S. I Hate You by Winter Renshaw Release Blitz with Excerpt

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Isaiah,

Eight months ago, you were just a soldier about to be deployed and I was just a waitress, sneaking you free pancakes and hoping you wouldn’t notice that my gaze was lingering a little too long.

But you did notice.

We spent a “week of Saturdays” together before you left, and we said goodbye on day eight, exchanging addresses at the last minute.

I saved every letter you ever sent, your words quickly becoming my religion.

But you went radio silent on me months ago, and then you had the audacity to walk into my diner yesterday and act like you’d never seen me in your life.

To think … I almost loved you and your beautifully complicated soul.

Almost.

Whatever your reason is—I hope it’s a good one.

Maritza the Waitress

PS – I hate you, and this time … I mean it.

 

 

There’s no denying something’s there, something that makes my heart trot when he looks at me, something that makes me slick on an extra coat of lip balm or an extra spritz of perfume before dashing out the door to meet him.
And while I’m the one who made the rules—no romance and only honesty at all times—I’m the one who can’t stop thinking about what would happen if we broke one of them.
Only problem is, I have zero idea if he’s thinking what I’m thinking. He’s so even-keeled and emotionally guarded, but they say actions speak louder than words and the fact that he’s here, spending time with me doing stupid shit has to count for something … right?
“Why are you staring like that?” Isaiah asks when he turns around.
My cheeks warm. I’d been spacing off. “No reason.”
“Bullshit. You can’t lie, remember? Tell me what you were thinking about.” His lips draw into a playful smirk, and I can’t decide if I like his mysterious side or his spirited side best. It’s like trying to choose between white chocolate and milk chocolate, which are both delicious in their own ways.
“You don’t want to know.”
And I’m serious. He doesn’t want to know that I’m thinking about him in a way that I was determined not to. Besides, he’s leaving in a few days. There’s no point in ruining the rest of our time together by making this situation unnecessarily complicated.
“Try me,” he says, his stare boring into me. Something tells me he’s not going to let this go.
Giving myself a moment, I gather my thoughts and nibble on my lower lip. “I was just thinking about connections.”
“Connections?” His hands rest on his hips, his shoulders parallel with mine. I have his full, undivided attention.
“I was just thinking about how I hardly know you, but I feel connected to you,” I say, cringing on the inside but fully embracing the discomfiture of this conversation.
He says nothing, which doesn’t make this moment any less awkward for the both of us.
“You asked!” I remind him, throwing my hands up.
Another moment passes, the two of us lingering next to some hairy elephant-looking creature with a long-as-hell scientific name as a group of children runs past us.
“Now I want to know what you’re thinking about.” I nudge his arm. “It’s only fair.”
He smirks, then it fades, and he gazes into the distance. It’s like there’s something on the tip of his tongue, but if I push or prod too much, he’ll never share it.
“Nothing, Maritza. I was thinking about nothing.”
I don’t buy it, but I don’t press any further. I want to burn this awkward moment into a pile of ash and move on.
“Are you going to remember me after this week?” I ask after a bout of silence.
His golden irises glint as his eyes narrow in my direction. “What kind of question is that?”
“A legit one,” I say. “Will you remember me? Or am I always just going to be that waitress girl that you hung out with for a week?”
“Don’t think I could forget you if I tried.” He speaks in such a way that I’m not sure if what he’s saying is a good thing or a bad thing. “Can I be honest right now?”
“You must. It’s a requirement.”
Isaiah’s tongue grazes his full lips for a quick second and he holds my gaze for what feels like forever. “I don’t want to make this any more confusing for either of us, but I feel like kissing you right now.”
I fight a smile. I don’t want to smile. I want to scoff at him and tell him to stop being such a hypocrite.
But that’s only half of me.
The other half of me wants him to kiss me, wants his hands in my hair and his taste on my tongue just one more time because we’ll never have this moment again and once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

ml1

 

BLURB: 

“A journey through life, loss & love.”

Young Astraea Salvo and Gabriel Varon discover a new friendship after separate tragedies change their lives. Together, they develop an affinity that quickly grows into an incredible bond despite the challenges of distance and the turbulence of adolescence. Unfortunately, nothing could prepare them for what was yet to come.

With war comes invisible wounds which are the toughest to heal. After combat in the Middle East, Gabriel must face his most difficult battle within himself.

With life comes love which is the hardest to keep. Astraea must overcome an intense loss and the growing distance between her and Gabriel as their lives pull them in different directions.

As adults, the two struggle to accept that their once unshakable friendship may never be the same again. But their genuine feelings continue to remind them that their bond will never completely be broken. In life, hearts don’t always win and the past isn’t always easy to escape. Will the unrelenting ties that bind them be able to defy the odds?

After all, anything worth fighting for never comes easy but will always be worth it in the end.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

4 STARS

The Long Road to Serenity is a sweet, emotional first love/friends to lovers romance. Astraea met Gabriel when she was just 7-years-old. She and her mother have traveled to Texas to visit her mother’s good friend. It’s a much-needed trip as her father died months before. She and Gabriel become fast friends and inseparable that summer. Even when she and her mother return home, she stays in contact with him. Their summers together create a life-long bond that develops into something more, but life throws them some curveballs that could tear them apart.

I loved the way in which the story was told. It was not rushed, and it allowed their relationship to develop and grow. Because of that, I was drawn into their story. In addition, it allowed them to develop into their own selves and not just as a couple.

Speaking of characters, I liked both of them. Poor Astraea was given some major blows by life. Yet, she always managed to pick herself back up. No matter what she was going through, she just wanted to help Gabe.

Part of me was frustrated with Gabe for pushing her away after returning home from war, struggling with PTSD. However, another part of me understood his reasons. I gained a new respect for him when I realized he needed her. He was in his heart being unselfish. He didn’t want to hinder her life in any way. He knew he always loved her, he just finally had to accept that he deserved her and her love. They each brought a calmness and serenity to the other. Great romance!!!

New Release & New Review: Come a Little Closer by Kim Karr! 5-Stars…Romance with a Suspenseful Twist!!!

 

Title: Come A Little Closer
Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 28, 2018

Blurb

I haven’t always been this bad…

Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties
and bent at the knees rather than the waist.

Pomp and circumstance changed all that.

Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I
should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though.
I found him irresistible. That sexy grin, those skilled fingers, and that
dirty, dirty mouth were a lethal combination.
I wasn’t supposed to want him. I wasn’t supposed to let him put his
hands on me. I wasn’t supposed to do a lot of things…but I did.
He wants to keep me close.
I should push him away.
He says he can help me.
I’m not so sure.
For some reason, he thinks there’s good left in me.
What if he’s wrong?
Everyone knows a good boy can’t turn a bad girl around.
Everyone knows it’s always the other way.
Everyone…except him.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 STARS

Well, Kim Karr crushed this one!!!! 5 Stars all the way for me! It had MAJOR steam, mystery, beautiful settings, and great characters. All of those elements combined with the fact that it was also very well-written made this a PERFECT read. Karr had me riveted from the very first scene…wow!!!

Poor Sadie has lived with secrets all her life, and she has spent her adulthood moving forward and trying to make a good life for herself. Now, her past is coming back to haunt her, so she does what she always does, she runs. However, this time she has a very angry and sexy man chasing her. He was supposed to be an easy mark, even if she detested stealing from others, but he turned out to be more complicated that she ever anticipated.

Jaxson was on his way to paradise for the job of a lifetime when he met a beautiful woman by the name of “Sarah” in an airport bar. He recently lost his fiancée to another man, and he has been celibate, swearing off women to concentrate on himself. “Sarah” is a temptation he can’t resist. After she accepts a drink and his proposition of “no strings” sex, he is more than delighted. Too bad the next morning, reality will set in when he wakes up to realize “Sarah” isn’t who she says she is, and she has run off with his money and livelihood. Luck is on his side when he finds a clue she left behind, and he vows to make her pay.

The attraction between these two is electrifying. They are “two lost souls, broken, damaged, and incomplete” yet there are “electric sparks, dangerous chemistry, and lust.” All those complicated emotions drew me into their story.

Sadie has made some wrong choices which leads to her even making worse decisions, but they do come from a good place in her heart. She’s trying to make things better. Jaxson looks like the all-American man, but he also exudes “sin, power, and seduction” with a completely naughty side. Sadie seems to bring that out in him. Yet, he also is a nice guy even though he tries to hide it since being the nice guy got him nothing but a broken heart. As much as Sadie brings out that naughty side, she brings out the good guy too. Once he knows her story, he will do anything he can to help her. But, he never counted on falling so hard for her.

In addition to this being a steamy romance, it also had elements of mystery and suspense. I certainly wasn’t expecting the twists and turns that occurred. Plus, the locations on the tropical islands made me feel like I was there in paradise as well.

I love the way Kim Karr writes. It is so much more than just a book; it’s a story she tells. Her use of literary devices and her descriptive writing is what sets her apart from some other writers in the same genre. She adds little things that make the story bigger. For instance, she added the 12 Steps that Sadie learned in her Al-Anon meetings and weaved them seamlessly into the book. My most favorite part of the book was the last two sentences in the epilogue, talk about making my heart melt!!!! It was perfect!!!!

New Review: Our Unscripted Story by L.A. Fiore: 5 Stars: “Stunning, Beautifully Written Romance”

LF_OUS_LIVE_FB1

OUS Ebook Cover Final

Greyson Ratcliffe. I met him at sixteen, the hot new guy sitting on my jetty, an aspiring artist just passing through. He was my first kiss and my first love. I wanted forever with him. I didn’t even get a year.Five years later, I’m a budding writer who scripts stories of love and struggle, the good and the bad and the ups and the downs. He’s a star on the rise; his wicked talent and crazy good looks have his face plastered on countless magazines. We move in two different worlds and still our paths cross again. We’re older and wiser and as crazy about each other as we had been as teenagers.

My medium is words and my imagination is limitless, but not even I could have written the incredible journey we traveled to reach our happily-ever-after. Life isn’t like fiction, and the greatest love stories don’t follow a script.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 STARS

Wow! I was not prepared for the emotional journey L.A. Fiore was going to take me on. It was stunning…she broke my heart and then tenderly put it back together.

From the very beginning, Alexis held a special place in my heart. Her spirit was incredible, and her imagination is what helped her survive. Her imagination has no boundaries, and when she sees Greyson Ratcliffe she makes up all sorts of stories in her mind, mostly involving them as a couple. She convinces herself that will never happen, especially because she zones out whenever she is near him.

Greyson has moved to the states from Ireland to begin his career as a successful artist, but his grandfather (whom I adore by the way) wants him to finish high school. He knows his time in the small coastal town has an expiration date, so he has no intentions of getting involved with a girl, that is, until he sees Alexis. Something about her just pulls him in, and he can’t resist.

There were so many things I loved about this book. The first part reads like a sexy young adult romance. Fiore taps into those emotions of first love, and it made me remember that special time in my life. However, Alexis and Greyson won’t get their HEA until much later, after having their hearts broken, and having to work so hard to get it. Their journey is very much like real life…it is full of joy, sadness, love, hardships, hope, redemption, and second chances.

There is so much more that happens within the pages of this book, and as I hinted at before, parts will completely break your heart. Just know that out of the sadness, there is incredible joy.

It is a beautifully written book and all the parts fit perfectly together from the title to the quotes that Fiore uses at each new part.
