About ABANDON:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Seaside Pictures series…

It’s not every day you’re slapped on stage by two different women you’ve been dating for the last year.

I know what you’re thinking. What sort of ballsy woman gets on stage and slaps a rockstar? Does nobody have self-control anymore? It may have been the talk of the Grammy’s.

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention that. I, Ty Cuban, was taken down by two psychotic women in front of the entire world. Lucky for us the audience thought it was part of the breakup song my band and I had just finished performing. I was thirty-three, hardly ready to settle down.

Except now it’s getting forced on me. Seaside, Oregon. My band mates were more than happy to settle down, dig their roots into the sand, and start popping out kids. Meanwhile I was still enjoying life.

Until now. Until my forced hiatus teaching freaking guitar lessons at the local studio for the next two months. Part of my punishment, do something for the community while I think deep thoughts about all my life choices.

Sixty days of hell.

It doesn’t help that the other volunteer is a past flame that literally looks at me as if I’ve sold my soul to the devil. She has the voice of an angel and looks to kill—I would know, because she looks ready to kill me every second of every day. I broke her heart when we were on tour together a decade ago.

I’m ready to put the past behind us. She’s ready to run me over with her car then stand on top of it and strum her guitar with glee.

Sixty days. I can do anything for sixty days. Including making the sexy Von Abigail fall for me all over again. This time for good.

Damn, maybe there’s something in the water.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Excerpt:

“You ready?” I gripped my drumsticks tightly in my right hand as the screaming from the crowd pierced my ears, causing an onslaught of adrenaline to pulse beneath my skin.

Drew, one of the leading frontmen for our band, Adrenaline, rolled his eyes and shot me a middle finger. Then he straight-up tugged his leather pants down below his hips to show off his legendary V.

We get it, bro, you’ve got an eight-pack where there’s usually only six.

With a flourish, I pulled off my simple white tee and shrugged. “What? Two can play that game.”

“Seriously, guys?” Will gave me a shove. “They already gave us shit last time about you two comparing dicks. It’s the Grammys, not the Super Bowl. We have to be clothed.”

I eyed him up and down. “Question. Was it your plan to go out there looking like the dad of the group, or was it just a happy accident?” He was in skinny jeans and a simple vintage tee and wore his typical thick black glasses that somehow still got him action from his wife, actress Angelica Greene. It was confusing when Will got action and I didn’t.

Not that I wasn’t getting any.

I inwardly smirked. I was dating one of our background dancers, while at the same time hooking up with one of Zane’s—both of which were performing with us tonight. Hey, it wasn’t like I planned for them to ever meet! And before you get your panties in a twist and start calling me a whore while chanting things like “I pray your dick falls off,” let me explain.

I have a solid reason for dating both women.

You ready for it?

The truth bomb of the century?

I don’t actually have a heart. You see, a long time ago in a land where my innocence thrived—you know, before the mistakes with the drugs, alcohol, and the time I carried a live chicken on stage and kissed it—I was in love.

Real love.

Not the kind where you say it just because you want to have sex with someone so badly, you’re willing to sell your soul to the devil. Twice.

Real, honest to God love.

Her name? Abigail.

Her current status? Breaker of souls and spawn of Satan.

His name is Flynn.
Flynn Phillips.

Life is no longer full of ones but full of firsts.

Can I make Flynn my last?
Can one become two… forever?

Danielle’s Review

5 Stars

This is part 2 in Isaac and Flynn’s duet. I had forgotten how much I loved these “Two” until I read this book!!

Isaac and Flynn both love each other but when old insecurities raise their ugly head, it’s going to take both of them handling things differently than they have in the past. Their careers have them thousands of miles apart but they try to keep their connection alive and are learning to communicate their needs with each other. Isaac and Flynn had their HFN ending with One but do they have what it takes for the long haul?

I love all members of the Fox family and didn’t realize how much I had missed them until I began this book. It is so easy to fall right back in with them. Isaac and Flynn love each other and their connection is so passionate but sometimes you need more to make it last and that’s what this story is about. My only complaint about this book is that it was over too soon and now I have to wait to reconnect with this family once more! I continue to be a huge fan of ES Carter!!

About the Author:

71Wrb2dFmDL._US230_

 

USA Today Bestselling Author, ES Carter, lives in Cardiff, South Wales—the home of castles, dragons, and folklore.

Her family joke that she was born with a book in her hand, and the urge to write stories soon followed.
At eleven, she won her school’s literary prize. At ages fourteen to sixteen – her poetry phase after falling in love with Dylan Thomas and e.e. cummings – she had a few poems published, but life, love, and family overtook her dreams, and she was in her thirties when she began the scary journey of self-publishing.
Her debut and internationally best-selling series, ‘Love by Numbers’, are a set of interconnected stand-alone romances, all with varying themes of love. From second-chance to romantic comedy and M/M romance. These stories do not need to be read in order (apart from the opening duet Nineteen/Twenty One), in fact, she is often guilty of advising readers to start at the last book and work their way back through.
Contemporary romance is not the only genre she writes, her second series, ‘The Red Order’, is as dark and twisted as you can get, but there is beauty there too if you can open your eyes and look.

With many more stories bursting to be set free, she hopes you stay along for the ride.
She loves to connect with readers, so please feel free to friend/follow her on Facebook, IG, and Twitter or join her reader’s group, E’s Elite ❤

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

4.5 STARS

Never have a read such a suspenseful and action-packed novella! It may only be 92 pages, but Leuschel left nothing out!!!!

This is an incredible look into a disturbed and manipulative female mind! Alexa appears perfect. She is the shining example of a high-powered executive. However, you know what many people say, appearances can be deceiving, and that is definitely the case with Alexa. She is beautiful, smart, and people take notice when she enters a room. Underneath, she is none of those things except a disturbed and manipulative individual. It doesn’t take her long to win over almost everyone in her new job except Monique who can see Alexa isn’t all she pretends to be.

On the other hand, Rosie is sweet and very hard-working. She works long hours to pay for her mother’s care, but she is still having trouble making ends meet. It doesn’t take Alexa long to worm her way into Rosie’s life offering a shoulder to lean on. When you lean on Alexa, it always comes with a price as Rosie will soon discover.

The book was narrated by both Alexa and Rosie. It was incredible seeing inside Alexa’s mind. Readers get an up close and personal view of just what a psychopath she truly is. In her warped perception, she is the victim. She is always the one being taken advantage of and set up. In reality, she is the perpetrator, not the victim, which was fascinating to see how warped her perception was.

This is a book certain to spark some interesting conversations, and it would make a great read for a book club!

Returning Home by Riann C. Miller Release Day Blitz with Excerpt & Review

 

Returning Home (A Novella)

Riann C. Miller

 

Contemporary Romance

At fifteen, I fell in love with Luke Runyan.

 

With just one look, one touch, he became my world until he shattered my heart into a million pieces. No one meets their soulmate when they’re only a kid, yet convincing my heart to move on is a task I never mastered. 

 

My heart has only ever belonged to one woman, Samantha Harris.

 

Sam had dreams; dreams I couldn’t deliver, which left me with only one choice… I walked away. 

 

Whoever said time heals all wounds never lost the love of their life. And they don’t force you back to the same small town you’ve spent your entire adult life avoiding, especially when she’s everywhere you turn.

 

Juggling the bags in my hands, I manage to get the back door open. My stomach grumbles from the sweet smell of warm cookies. I place the bags on the counter, ready to swipe a cookie from a cooling rack when Margie walks into the kitchen.

“Oh, you came. I wasn’t sure if you’d bring my order this week.”

“I don’t bail on people; you should know that by now.”

I wince when her mouth turns down with a frown.

“I don’t know what I would do without you, Sam. I guess I was just worried things would change now.”

I force a smile, hoping it doesn’t look nearly as fake as it feels. “Nothing is going to change unless of course, you want it to.”

She limps in my direction and pulls me in for a hug. I lost my mother when I was five and over the years, Margie has filled the void I’ve felt. Losing her isn’t an option, at least not one I can live with.

“I would understand if you didn’t want to come by.”

I open my mouth, ready to reply when he walks into the kitchen. The second Luke spots me he freezes, both of our bodies going stiff.

Margie’s eyes follow mine until they stop on her son. “Oh, I thought you were taking a nap.” Her voice shakes, probably expecting all hell to break loose, but I’m not about to act like a crazy ex-girlfriend.

“I couldn’t sleep.” Luke’s deep voice rumbles through me. He looks the same, just bigger, harder, tougher compared to the eighteen-year-old I remember.

I clear my throat and my wandering thoughts. “I didn’t check your order before bringing it to you. If you’re missing anything, let me know.”

I lean forward, giving Margie a quick kiss on the cheek. “Have a great day.” Without looking at either of them, I swiftly walk out the back door.

My entire life has been one messy situation after another. I shouldn’t be surprised that Luke of all people would return home and somehow magically become my patient, but damn if I don’t hate my new reality.

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

****4 STARS****

“…when your heart finds its soulmate, life will always find a way of bringing you back together.”

 

Returning Home is an enjoyable and emotional second chance romance. Twelve years ago, Luke left the girl, Sam, who he thought was his forever behind, shattering both his and Sam’s hearts. He has returned home to his small town with an injury while in combat. As fate would have it, Sam is the home health nurse assigned to help rehabilitate him. As Sam notes, fate has never been kind to her, so why should she be surprised that Luke is now her patient. The resentment and pain hasn’t eased over those years, and that is evident in their first meeting. Both soon realize maybe their love story has ended quite yet, and maybe Luke’s reason for leaving wasn’t for selfish reasons.

This is a novella, so it is short, but Miller didn’t not shortchange her readers. It’s packed full of emotion. I fell in love with the storyline and the characters, especially sweet Katie. She could melt anyone’s heart. There was some drama and angst, but nothing was drawn out or overdone. It was a heartwarming second chance romance and a great way to spend my afternoon!

 

Hi, I’m Riann. I’ve been obsessed with reading romance novels for close to five years. I love getting to know new people in the book community and I’ve met several people along the way that I consider true friends. I’m happily married with two children. When I’m not reading or writing, I’m usually spending time with my family, friends or watching baseball.
