Title: WHEN YOU BECAME MINE

Author: A.S. Teague

Genre: Contemporary

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.



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good enemies/friends to lovers book, and this one has to be one of my favorites!!!

Piper and her twin brother, Jack, grew up with Lawson, Hampton, and Georgia. As a little girl, Piper gave her heart to Hampton. He was her hero, always taking care of her and protecting her, at least that is what she thought! Lawson was  Hampton’s older brother. In reality, he was the protector, only wanting happiness for Piper. However, she always saw him as judgmental, never realizing how deep his feelings were for her. After college,, he leaves, hoping never to return and have to face his feelings for Piper. Fast forward years later, and fate brings him back home and right back into Piper’s orbit and closer to her than he ever imagined.  Oh wow, what a story these two have to share with us. It’s a tale full of love, emotion, drama, and a subplot involving some suspense. What you get is a great book, one that is hard to put down.

Lawson and Piper are very well-developed and complex characters. There was a whole other level to Lawson I didn’t know about. I discovered some of those at the same time Piper did. It’s funny how you think you know someone, but you have no clue. Once Piper’s eyes are opened to Lawson, she begins realizing what a treasure she had in front of her the whole time. I really enjoyed seeing these two discover each other in a completely different light.

The book does have some lighter moments, especially the banter between Piper and Lawson. The addition of Hampton and Georgia just made it funnier. While there were parts I really laughed at, there were also some really sad moments dealing with loss and how to move forward, especially when you harbor guilt.

I have to commend Teague for the addition of the subplot involving some suspense. In some books, that may be seen as an afterthought and not connected to the book as a whole. That was not the case in this book. It factored into the plot as a whole and added another level to the book.

When You Became Mine was a book that had it all….love, romance, spice, laughter, and most importantly, second chances. It made me stop, think, and really appreciate those I love! If you are looking for a book to capture both your heart and your mind, you can’t go wrong with this one!

This Love by Kelly Elliott Excerpt Tour

12 Oct

 

 

 

 

 

I was a self-appointed bachelor and happy to have the title. Everyone thought it was time for me to settle down and find a nice girl. Well, no thank you. This cowboy wanted to stay clear of relationships. I wanted the freedom that came with no strings.

But what did I know? Nothing apparently.

Everything changed when I looked into her green eyes; my world tilted when she smiled at me.

What was this feeling?

Whatever was happening had me losing my damn mind. I fumbled with my words. My body wasn’t my own. I wanted her … desperately.

Was I ready to give up my bachelor days, or was this Irish girl simply an itch I needed scratched?
This Love is book 6 in the Cowboys and Angels series

EXCERPT

 

“Do you like kissing women and getting them all hot and bothered and then walking away? Does that get you off?”

Cord walked around his desk and headed toward the door of his office. Where in the hell did he think he was going?

He shut the door and turned back to face me. When he walked toward me, I stepped back until me legs hit his desk.

“You were hot and bothered by our kiss?”

The way his blue eyes searched me face had me panting. It was getting harder to breathe, especially with him nearly pressed against me body…again.

“No,” I lied.

“That’s not what you just said, Maebh.”

I stood up straighter and squared me shoulders. “By your own admission, and on more than one occasion, Mr. Parker, you don’t always understand what I say.”

He laughed, and I moaned internally. God, I loved his laugh. And his smile. And the way he ran his fingers through his hair.

“Why are you so interested in if I’ve fucked someone in here?”

“I’m not,” I stated, me hands going to me hips.

He leaned closer, a whisper away. “You’re lying. I can tell because your cheeks are turning a beautiful shade of pink. I wonder how vibrant that pink gets when you come?”

Me mouth opened in utter shock, and I stared at him.

“I bet they turn vibrant.”

Cord stepped closer.

“I’ve never found the right woman to bring into my private space and make love to, but there’s always a first time…”

Me tongue bathed me dry lips. Cord’s eyes followed, and he let out a soft growl from the back of his throat.

“You… You…”

Christ, what are you trying to say?

“May I ask you something, Maebh?”

The way he said my name made me knees knock together. The room was spinning.

“Y-yes.”

“Did you like the kiss we shared? Did you like my hands under your dress? My cock pressed against you?”

I wanted to say yes, but I couldn’t forget how he’d made me feel when he walked away and then pretended it had never happened.

“I might have enjoyed it more if you hadn’t walked away from me like an arse.”

His smile instantly disappeared.

“Maebh, I didn’t mean to…”

My hands went to his chest to push him back, but I jerked them away when I felt the zap of energy rushing between us.

What in the world did this man do to me? He was dangerous. Very dangerous.

“I need to get back to Aisling. Have a nice one, Cord.”

He stepped out of my way, and I was relieved I wouldn’t have to argue with him.

Me eyes burned, and I couldn’t figure out why I let this man get me so worked up. I headed for the door, but before I could open it, Cord took me arm and spun me around. He pushed me against the office door. I was having a déjà vu moment.

“You didn’t enjoy any of that night, Maebh?”

A sexy smile moved over Cord’s face. “Answer me.”

Me eyes bounced all over his face as I fought to remember how in the hell to speak.

“What are you doing to me?” I whispered.

His forehead leaned against mine, and I noticed his chest heaving.

“I could say the same thing to you, agra.”

Everything stopped, and I inhaled a sharp breath.

“Where did you hear that?” I asked.

Cord moved away and pushed his hands into his pockets.

“Answer me,” I demanded. “Where did you hear that name?”

He shrugged. “You better get going, the restaurant opens in a few hours, and you’ll need to be ready.”

My mouth hung open. He was going to call me sweetheart and not even tell me how he knew that word.

“You confuse me, Cord Parker. One minute you make me think you want me, the next I’m like a bug you have to squash.”

He stood there, not saying a word.

“Do you?”

His eyes jerked up to meet mine. “Do I what?”

“Want me?”

It was the boldest question I’d ever asked a man, and me neck and cheeks felt like they were on fire. But I had to know. I needed to know how he felt.

When he didn’t reply and dropped his gaze, I had me answer.

“I didn’t think so,” I said, with a nervous laugh. “Stupid fool am I.”

“Maebh—”

“It’s okay. I see the women who throw themselves at you. I won’t compete with the likes of that.”

A look of horror moved over his face.

“I know I’m not as pretty or as…experienced…” I needed to leave before I kept spewing words.

“What are you talking about? Maebh, you’re…”

Cutting him off, I tried to act peppy as I plastered on a fake smile. “Have a good one.”

And like that, I was rushing down the hallway from Cord Parker. I’d just humiliated meself, and I would never forgive meself for being so damn weak.

It was a silly crush on a handsome boy who would never be happy with a girl like me.

Title: The Gathering

The Ivy Blackwood Chronicles

Author: L.A. Fiore
Genre: Contemporary/Thriller/Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 12, 2018

 

Blurb
Words like unnatural and impure started the whispers.
From the very beginning, Ivy Blackwood was different. She
was only a child when she was accused of setting the fire, one she passively
watched engulf the small house she had called home. Her fingertips burned and
her hair singed. Some who watched her crossed themselves, convinced she was
soulless for she showed no emotion at all. Calm and dispassionate, even when
the screaming started that quickly turned to bellows of agony before dying into
nothing but the roaring of the fire.
She was locked away where she couldn’t bring harm to herself
or others. To all involved, they had protected the world from a monster, but
sometimes things are not what they seem.
