Redemption: Part 6 

by Kate Benson

 

Synopsis:

***This book contains material intended for mature readers***

ADAM

I said I’d never let things go this far, but a taken heart can also be a deceptive one.
Being with Bella has turned my life upside down.
Now, I’m on the verge of losing everything I’ve ever worked for, including the love of my life.
I’ve fought for her, bled myself into us.
The board has come for us, our stalker is waiting, and the media continues to fuel the fire.
What began with a chance of redemption will end the same.
I think I always knew it would.
I just never thought I’d be fighting for her redemption instead of mine.

ISABELLA

Despite my insecurities, Adam has never left my side.
Now, he’s facing the loss of his company, of everything because of our relationship.
For the first time, my trust isn’t enough to save us and my options are down to one.
He won’t like it. In fact, he’s already forbidden it.
However, this is one time I can’t obey him no matter how badly I want to.
The day I met him, Adam gave me a chance at redemption.
In the end, I’ll do whatever it takes, including breaking my own heart, to give him the same.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Great ending to a fascinating series!!!!

Book 6, as with all the other books in the series, picks up right where book 5 ended. Kate Benson has steadily built the suspense throughout the series as she continued to deepen the relationship between Isabella and Adam. She gave her readers a very satisfying ending, answering all of the lingering questions.

I am a fan of a series as long as the storyline continues to be fresh and characters still have a story to tell. Benson definitely kept this one fresh with the suspense. Both Adam and Isabella changed throughout each book, especially Adam. I remember when I first was introduced to him, he seemed a bit cold. However, he was anything but that. I loved seeing him open up more with each book. Isabella was always steadfast, loving him no matter what. This couple definitely deserved a HEA.

I have always thought Benson had a magical way with words, and with each book, she continues to prove that time and time again. This talented writer can move me with her words in her acknowledgement and dedication in the beginning of the book. Her characters are very real, and they are a very real part of who she is. That is quite evident in everything she writes. I just wish I could live inside her mind for just a little bit!!!! If you haven’t discovered her books, you really are missing a treat!

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane by Emily Harvale Blog Tour with Review

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane

by Emily Harvale

 

Synopsis

Snow is falling in Little Pondale, lights are twinkling and the smell of pine trees and roasting chestnuts fills the air …

But Mia Ward is in a bit of a jam. She’d planned to rent out Corner Cottage for Christmas but thanks to best friend, Ella Swann, it’s double-booked. Now Mia’s got to let one ‘party’ down, or find another cottage – fast.

Best friends and single mums, Cathy Cole and Christy Franks want their kids to have an old-fashioned Christmas. Ice-skating, carol singing, making decorations, and tobogganing are on their list of festive fun and Little Pondale is the perfect place. Especially as it has no mobile phone reception. That will make it harder for Cathy to be found.

City banker, Leo Hardman is wondering if renting a cottage for Christmas as an anniversary surprise for his parents, was such a good idea. Little Pondale may be where his parents met, but his mum doesn’t seem pleased to be back, and his brother, Hal isn’t happy that the village is so tiny and only has one pub.

Meanwhile, Jenny Lake is settling in at her cousin’s bakery, having left her (broken) heart in Florence, but Christmas was never her favourite time of year. And Reverend Glen Fox has taken over at St Michael and All Angels. He’s glad it’s a temporary post because village life is not for him.

But luckily, for locals and visitors alike, there’s a sleigh-load of Christmas magic heading for Lily Pond Lane; enough to put a sparkle in everyone’s festive season. Although Christmas may not go quite as each of them has planned.



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Emily Harvale has again given her fans another great addition to her wonderful, heartwarming series. I was so glad to see that there was a Christmas addition!!

Harvale returns with some of my favorites, Mia, Ella, and Jet while meeting new ones. I have to be honest and say though, I was most curious of where Mia and Jet’s relationship is going. These two have had quite the journey, and Harvale exceeded all my expectations!

Harvale has always captured my heart with her storyline and her characters, but this one was really special. She truly captured the Christmas spirit. It certainly put me in the “holiday spirit.” She does such a great job of creating such a detailed setting, and I can always picture it so clearly in my mind.

One of the reasons I love this series so much is because I feel like I have gotten to know the characters I met from the very first book. They have grown and changed so much. I feel like I’m catching up with old friends. As always, I will be looking forward to returning in the future and seeing where the characters will take me!

About When You Became Mine:

I was twelve years old when I fell in love with Piper Kelley. Even at the age of eight, she was everything I wasn’t: brave, bold, and beautiful.

The night of my college graduation party, I finally made my move, but Piper only had eyes for one man—my younger brother.

With a battered heart, I left for Vegas, determined to put her behind me. But eight years later, fate proved once again that it had never cared about my plans.

Now, I’m back home, and determined not to fall into the same trap I spent the majority of my adolescence trying to escape.

But when Piper finds herself at the risk of losing her medical license, I realize just how far I’m willing to go to protect her.

I was twelve when Piper Kelley became mine.

It’s time I let her know.

Exclusive Excerpt:

He tucked a stray strand of hair behind my ear, his hand lingering as his thumb swiped the last bit of moisture from my face. “I love this song.”

My brows wrinkled and I strained my ears to hear what song was playing. “Yeah.” I forced a small smile and let my eyes flutter shut. My body began to sway with the music, and I let the artist’s soulful voice wash over me. “Maybe one day I’ll get to dance at their concert.”

Lawson moved and I opened my eyes to see him stand. Jumping from the last two steps, he turned back to me, his hand outstretched. “Why wait?”

With a soft smile on his face, his eyes sparkled as he asked, “Dance with me?”

I shook my head. “No, uh, I’m not really good.”

He laughed, the sound warming me. “Me neither. Come on.”

What the hell?

I stood and brushed off the back of my pants, hesitating. Who was this guy? His smile widened, and he winked—Lawson Reed, the nerdiest man I knew actually winked at me, before giving his outstretched hand a little shake. With a lift of my shoulders, I sucked in a breath before stepping into his open arms.

It was strange at first, but when he pulled me in close I rested my head on his chest, desperate for any morsel of comfort I could get. His heart beat strong, steady, in rhythm with my own. I allowed my lids to flutter shut again and I inched myself closer, holding Lawson impossibly tighter while he slowly rocked me back and forth.

The music played, and I got lost in the words.

The way they felt.

The way Lawson felt.

The way I felt in Lawson’s arms.

All too soon, the song ended, and a more upbeat one took its place.

Synopsis:

Landing a writing gig in Hollywood was just as difficult as becoming an actor, and something Claire Becker had learned the hard way.

Sure, she didn’t have to conform to ridiculous beauty standards and give up her love for raw cookie dough, but the sting of rejection burned all the same. The only things that kept her sane were her two amazing roommates and her guilty pleasure—writing fan-fiction.

Getting lost in her own world, she’d forget that she had yet to land her dream job, and instead spent time with her dream man—Nick Larsson. Well, at least in the literary sense. Too bad he wasn’t aware or an active participant—her fictional love life, outstanding.

Tall, good-looking and sexy beyond comprehension, Nick Larsson not only had a famous last name—and four equally smoldering brothers—but was talented beyond belief. A star on the rise with a critically acclaimed series, his body and face were what fantasy scripts—and dreams—were made of. Made for some pretty steamy writing opportunities too.

And yes, it was probably “wrong” for Claire to objectify him, but it wasn’t like anyone knew about it. Just her, and her two amazing, supportive roommates.

Or at least they were amazing and supportive, and bound to be missed after Claire killed them.

In a moment of unexplained insanity, one of them —or both, each as bad as the other—sent her latest installments to the man himself.

Cue panic of epic proportions.

All Claire needed to do was sneak into his apartment and retrieve the misappropriated story before Nick, or anyone else, read it and mistook her for a creepy stalker. Although, breaking and entering probably wouldn’t convince anyone to the contrary either.

Claire was going to get the best material of her life, or end up with a restraining order. Either way, the story was getting a hell of lot more interesting.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

 

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.

When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.

She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.
