five gold starsReviewed by Jacqui

ARC received for an honest review
This latest book from D. Kelly is an absolute must read. The story is about an unconventional love between Rylee, Pete, and Nick. The characters are from Chasing Cassidy and reading it will help with the following of the story.
Rylee Stafford has always known she wanted a happily ever after, but not in the traditional way. Eight years of therapy have helped Rylee to understand what she wants and that it is all okay. The hard part for her is to see if others will understand her way.
Enter Nick and Pete. Nick has been in love with Rylee for as long as he can remember. Best friends with her brother Zack, he is willing to wait for Rylee to decide if he is what she wants. Pete is another friend that Rylee hooked up with at Zack and Cassidy’s wedding. He also is in love with Rylee and wants to continue their relationship. Rylee is in love with both men and wants them both. But Nick and Pete have a plan also.
This is an amazing story of the power of love. When you love as deeply as D. Kelly has written in Sharing Rylee, there are no obstacles in your way. This book is so well written that the complicated love story between these three seems normal. I cheered for Rylee in her coming to the realization she no longer has to hide. She could face her fears and get through this as a stronger person.
Well done D. Kelly!! I am in love with this story and everything about it. One of the best books I have read this year. Thanks for the chance to read it early.

Once again D. Kelly has sent me on an emotional roller coaster. This book is a must read.  The characters will suck you into their world so you can see their story with them. I love how bits and pieces of them are released a little bit at a time. This book is beautifully written, the saucy parts are hot and steamy. The main story line of the book keeps you intrigued so much so you may not want to put the book down ever.

Rylee, is a strong willed girl just trying to find herself self and her place in the world. She knows what she wants and what she needs to get it, but can’t seem to bring her-self to open the door to make her dreams come true. Nick knows what Rylee needs and is willing to give her anything she wants; after all he gave her his heart in high school, he just can’t figure out why he’s not enough. When Pete re-appears into Nick’s life and whisks Rylee away for a few nights of fun under the sheets, Nick can hardly stand it.  Nick wants more, Pete wants more and Rylee has friend zoned them both. How can you fall in love with 2 people and not break anyone’s heart.

Synopsis

Do happily ever after’s always have to be so traditional?
Rylee Stafford has asked herself this question since she was eighteen years old. Now, at twenty-eight she still doesn’t have an answer. One thing she knows for sure is even if she can have the unconventional relationship she’s always dreamed of, it would never fly with her family. Her sexual proclivities would never be accepted by them or their social circle.
The truth is Rylee is tired of hiding her feelings. Tired of wanting what she can’t have and so tired of feeling abnormal because she wants a different kind of love.
She’s kept her secret well hidden, especially from Nick, her on again off again love affair. Her secret isn’t their only stumbling block, though—Rylee’s also met someone new. His name is Pete and he sets her heart and soul on fire; he’s sexy, smart, possessive, and he wants her. No matter how much she cares for them she can’t bring herself to tell them the truth. The only way to Rylee’s heart is to have a relationship with both men.It’s only when Rylee takes her annual vacation does she finally realize her happiness is worth more than what anyone thinks of her. Now the only question is: will Rylee’s alternate lifestyle alienate everyone she loves? Or will she be accepted for the person she’s always been deep down inside?

Blog Page Break 2Excerpt 

“Nick, I think you should go.”

I feel like she punched me in the gut, but I’m going to take Zack’s lead on this one. He never let Cassidy pull too far away, and I’m not going to let Rylee shut me out now.

Silently, I get dressed. She’s still standing by the bathroom with her arms across her chest. She doesn’t want to get close to me because she doesn’t want to admit her feelings for me.

“Rylee,” I say, walking toward her at a slow pace. She eyes me up and down and presses herself as close to the wall as possible. She’s not getting away from me.

I pull her into my arms and crush my lips to hers. My hand weaves into her sexy, just-fucked hair, and I pull her tightly to my lips. I kiss her with all the passion I’ve had building inside of me for years and she feels it. I know she does because she hasn’t stopped whimpering the entire time her tongue has been dueling with mine. When I finally slow the kiss, she whimpers even more, and when I slowly pull away, her fingers go immediately to her lips as if she’s trying to savor the magic we just shared.

“I’ll go for now, Ry, but not for long. I’m going to check in on you every day, but I’ll give you space and stay away. Don’t take too long because I want you now more than ever, Rylee. I always have and I always will.”

 
I place a soft kiss to her forehead and leave.

New Release + 5 Star ARC Review ✽ Lasting Lyric (The Downtown Series #4)by TJ West

Lasting Lyric (The Downtown Series Book 4) T.J West

 ARC received for an honest review

 

Oh T.J. West you have done it again in your Downtown Series. This time with Slim and Lyric. I fell in love with these characters. Two people who started out as friends, or in this case band member and manager, who decided that resisting what they have is pointless. Who better to fall in love with than your best friend who kicks your ass at video games?!

 

Slim McQuaid is the guitar player for JINKS. Easy going and happy he forms a strong friendship with their new manager Lyric Newton-Crow that has him wanting more. After the bus accident that sent Lyric to the hospital and away from Slim for months he is ready to show her that he wants more than just the friendship.

 

Lyric is the daughter of famous parents and siblings. Never getting the acting bug she takes a job as JINKS manager and follows her dreams of the music industry. Her dreams also lead her to Slim. His easy going demeanor and ability to lose gracefully at video games sparks her interest. But she is his manager. Nothing can happen. Or so she thinks.
Once again TJ West weaves us a sizzling tale of a sexy rocker and the woman who loves him. Filled with the type of steamy scenes and storytelling you love from the author, this book will not disappoint. This is one of my favorite rocker series. Add to that the covers create an image for you when you read, what is not to like?! So once again TJ West, thank you for giving me the chance to read the next installment of the Downtown Series. Rock on sista friend!!

Synopsis

 ***Warning- Not intended for those under 18 years. Extreme language and sex.  ***This book is part of a series- book 4.

 

It was a spark neither one of us saw coming…

It was a love neither one of us expected…

 

It’s a competition of wit and intelligence.  Our attraction undeniable and our chemistry magnetic.  Very much different in our upbringings, so naturally the odds would be stacked against any kind of romance.

 

I’m the rock star and she’s every bit the good girl.  We respect each other, but push each other’s buttons.  Our friendship is unconventional, but something inside of me tells me that Lyric is my perfect fit.

 

It only takes one moment to change everything, one moment to turn my whole world upside down.  What happens when you fall in love with your best friend?  Are you prepared to handle the emotions?

 

She’ll be the lyric I can’t shake…

Excerpt

 

She giggles again. “Night, Hot Stuff.”

“G’night, Charlie.” I may have said goodnight, but my body is not ready for it. My fingers itch to get a feel of her belly, her skin. It’s all so fucking wrong, though. Why hadn’t I ever felt this way for her before? Why now? Why are my eyes suddenly wide open for the very first time? How did I not see her before the accident? I want things to go back to the way they were. I don’t want to have these feelings for her…I just can’t help it, though. I need to feel her. A need that is so wrong, yet feels so right. Very slowly, I inch the tips of my fingers to the edge of her cami. I pause. I don’t want her getting the wrong idea, even though it is the wrong idea. One finger. Two fingers, then three. The rest follow suit and trickle their way a little up her cami. Lyric flinches and her body stiffens. I stop. “Sorry,” I mumble. “My fingers cold?”

“No,” she whispers out. “Why are you touching me there?”

Crap, she hates it. She doesn’t want this. I give her my best answer, anyways. “You’re soft.”

“Can’t sleep if you keep tickling me.”

Tickling. I bite back a laugh and proceed gliding my fingers across her belly. Holy fuck, her body is soft as hell. I fucking love it. “Tickles, huh?”

“Yes.” I can tell she is trying hard not to laugh. She’s very squirmy and it’s making my cock hard. Hope she can’t feel it. “Stop it.”

“Okay,” I chuckle. “Night again.”

She sighs, “Night.”

“Is it okay if I just keep it there? I promise, no tickling.”

“Fine,” she groans, and I bet she has a smile on her face, along with an eye roll.

I can’t stop skimming her belly and flirting with her. “It’s, like, really soft.”

She snaps, “Slim!”

My body shakes with silent laughter. “Yeah, I’m done. Go to sleep.”

“That’s what I’m trying to do.”

“Sorry,” I chuckle.

My hand stays planted on her belly, and I hope that tomorrow night we’ll be able to do this again, and maybe…just maybe, I’ll inch further up her cami and hit my jackpot. My flirtation is going to test our relationship, but will Lyric decide she’ll want to flirt back and possibly take our friendship to the next level? Only one way to find out.

Author Interview

Tell us a little about yourself and your background:

I’m originally from NS, Canada later moving to LA where I now live with my kids and husband. I’m a huge hockey fan, love the water, and have the biggest obsession with Ketchup chips. I can hear you all gaging now, but trust me these things will put me in my grave, but it will be so worth it. J

What inspired you to write your first book?

What inspired me to write my first book, was I heard a friend had written a book and something lite inside me. I thought “well I want to try.” So, I sat down in front of my computer and three years later here I am.

What inspired you to write your first book?

I think it would be Pop Goes the Wesel by James Patterson because it showed me that romance and suspense can blend well together.

How much truth is in your fiction.

It depends on which story, Darkness Series has the most truth to it. Broken would have about 60% and Blackstone has about 20%.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor and why?

That’s a hard question, it’s a tossup between James Patterson and Katy Evans. They each have left their mark with me. James Patterson for his creepy way of telling you a story that keeps you on your finger hooked on the next page so that you don’t have to lose a beat. Katy Evans, because she can write one hell of a twisted sexy screw-up male lead. Remington Tate will always be in my top 5 beloved alpha characters.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

I weave several story lines together and drop clues throughout. It can be tricky linking them together or forgetting to link them…it happens but thankfully I have a whole team who works with me so eventually the loose ends get found!

Do you have any strange writing habits?

I need music to loop in the background as I write, or listen to rain on an app I have. Really, it just depends on the mood I’m trying to create. Other than that I just write until I’m done.

How important are names to you in your books? Do you choose the names based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning?

Names are strange for me. I am always googling them, I tend to go for the shorter ones, I like four to five letters. It’s just an odd cork of mine. Savi, Cole, Seth, Emily, Mark, Mia, Lexi etc…They don’t have to have meanings, more of just what suits how I see them physically. I am an extremely visual author. I see each scene as if I was directing a movie. Right down to the music, background, lighting, and smells.

Are you a plotter or a pantster?

I’m a total pantster, I can’t do story boards. I get an idea and just start to write. Where it goes is what the story must be. It can change about 150 times but that’s okay because it was meant to be.

What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?

I would say my Broken Trilogy has been my greatest accomplishment. That story came to me in a dream and I had to put my other series on hold because Savannah’s story was screaming at me. Best decision ever.

Is there one subject you would never write about as an author? What is it?

Hmm, a few months ago I would have answered this question differently. However, now that I am writing this mc series I’m not sure if I have any boundaries anymore.:/ I will never torture an animal in any of my books, Adler is safe and sound with a family member (Darkness Series).

What is your least favorite part of the publishing / writing process?

Passionate scenes are a bit of a struggle for me. I can do “intense passion” but “slow/sweet passionate scenes” I get a little antsy on. Cole Logan, helped me get through Broken. For whatever Cole opened a new door for me. Still, not my comfort though.

Is there a certain type of scene that’s harder for you to write than others? Love? Action? Racy?

Least favorite part of writing would be editing or when you have boxed yourself into a corner. Then realize that you will have to remove the scene and start over again. I write fast and hate to stop and go back to what needs to be re-written.

What writing advice do you have for other aspiring authors?

My advice, just keep writing. Take breaks when you need them, there’s no shame in taking a month break, sometimes your head just needs it. Sit on the story when you’re done, tuck it away, wait a month and go back over it. You’d be surprised what you missed. Get a great editor. Invest a few hundred $250-$800 it may sound like a lot but it’s your hard earned work with your name on it.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself sitting in front of my lap top working on a fifteen book series. I’d love to write a story that last over “their” life time. Time will tell.

Just some fun questions

Characters often find themselves in situations they aren’t sure they can get themselves out of. When was the last time you found yourself in a situation that was hard to get out of and what did you do?

I honestly can’t recall a real life situation that I got myself into that “I” actually got myself out of. However, I did get myself and my friends into a positional situation in Vegas and thankfully my friends came to the rescue by being aware and reading the “signs” I didn’t see. …I leave you with that.

Does your significant other recognize his moves in your writing?

Oh Lord…yes *tugs on collar* and not just in the romantic scenes… *cough* Seth Connors personality.

What literary character is most like you?

Savannah Miller. Her feistiness.

What secret talents do you have?

I used to act in theater and film back in Canada…not sure if that was a talent lol

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love the water so anytime we get the chance we head out to Parker, AZ and spend as much time as we can on the Colorado River.

A Blackstone soldier, Mark is transferred to the North Dakota hospital with the security clearance to treat members of the elite covert team. The pretty new nurse assigned to his case knows her stuff, but Mark soon discovers she knows more than just how to save lives. Mia Harper knows the Blackstone Code. 

Mia is a bit of gypsy and doesn’t engage much with people—but there’s something about her mysterious new patient… 

After Mark recovers from surgery, he is discharged from the hospital with orders to rest. Not that he does. Instead he rushes to México for the team’s next assignment. But when he returns to the hospital again and again with minor—and not so minor—injuries, Mia suspects he’s only coming to see her. Romance ignites, and because Mia signed a non-disclosure agreement at the hospital, Mark is able to open up more with Mia than any other woman. 

Some debts demand payment in either cash or blood… 

When someone from Mark’s past comes to him for help, old secrets start to resurface, and more blood is shed. Worlds collide and lies are exposed in an all-or-nothing underground poker game.

Mark must put his life on the line to keep Mia safe…and to finally learn the answer to the question that’s haunted him his whole life.

BROKEN #1 

My name is Savannah Miller. 

My father is the mayor of New York. One day after my twenty-seventh birthday I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I’d ever known. 
I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process. 

Then one night an elite group of US Army soldiers came to my rescue. I was brought to a safe house and given two options: 

One—Stay under their protection and follow their rules or… 
Two—Leave and be guaranteed to be returned to the savages within a week. 

I chose option one. 

As I work with a therapist and begin processing my hellish ordeal things slowly begin to surface. With the help of new friends and a potential new love I fight to get my life back and make choices that will forever alter my future. 

This is my story… 

SHATTERED #2 

After witnessing the murder of her lover and the heartbreaking loss of their unborn child, Savannah wants to end it all. 

Then she is given a second chance at love. Sadly, even when life hands you second chances it doesn’t always follow that things will work out the way you want them to. 

Some lies can just be too painful to move on from. What’s worse than being Broken? Being shattered… 

MENDED #3 

Savannah takes control… 

Tired of all the lies and deception, Savannah Miller must learn to face life on her own. As she seeks to find out who she really is, she still is still burdened with the fallout from past traumas that left her broken. 

Her fragile hold on her new life slowly gives her the confidence to move ahead. What she really needs is right in front of her—Cole Logan is patiently waiting for the right moment to prove his love. But her past isn’t finished with her yet… 

Are Savannah’s strength and Cole’s love enough to vanquish the shadows, or will those who mean them harm succeed in preventing the mending of their shattered souls?

DARKNESS LURKS #1 

Emily McPhee has struggled to overcome her father’s death…It’s not easy, but Emily finally has the life she wants. She’s an A student at Orange University and has a comfortable home and a great circle of friends. She’s also in love with handsome Orange PD officer Seth Connors. He doesn’t seem to return her feelings, though, so she tells herself his friendship is enough. 

Jimmy Lasko is a psychopath, and Emily is his greatest obsession…Lasko knows what he wants—what he deserves—and has the deadly skills and unending patience to get it. What he wants is Emily, and he is watching and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. That time is coming soon; he’ll make sure of it. A sense of unease settles on Emily, but is the danger real or imagined? 

When Emily begins hearing noises and suspects someone has been in her house, Seth urges her to get a roommate. But after a search, she realizes a certain attractive cop would be the perfect choice, and Seth moves in. 

Seth loves Emily, but fears his feelings might make it difficult to protect her. In all areas of his life, Seth sees himself as a protector. He’s determined to keep Emily safe, but he pushes the captivating blonde away in an attempt to stay objective. However, after her stalker makes a failed attempt to capture her, Seth can no longer deny his feelings. 

With help from Seth’s police colleagues, he and Emily set out to identify the person hunting her before it’s too late. But is it worth the risk to bait the trap with what he wants most? 

DARKNESS FOLLOWS #2 

Emily McPhee is in the clutches of a monster… Despite the protection of her boyfriend Seth Connors and his colleagues with the Orange Police Department, Emily is imprisoned in a basement by her psychopathic stalker Jimmy Lasko. His bizarre behavior adds to her terror, and a video link forces Seth to witness her captivity, leaving him feeling helpless as he, the OPD, and the FBI search for her. 

Freedom isn’t free, and safety is just an illusion…Though Emily escapes the basement, the threat is far from eliminated. In fact, things she learned while being held by Lasko lead her to believe he isn’t working alone. Lasko is still out there, determined to get her back, and crazier than ever. If he does have a partner, Emily has no idea where the threat might lie or who she can trust. 

DARKNESS FALLS #3 

More than a year after her ordeal, Emily McPhee finally feels safe…Emily’s psychological scars are healing. Things are great between her and OPD Officer Seth Connors, and her biggest problem is the X-rated Halloween decorations her best friend Pete has placed all around her house. 

If only it would stay that way… Seth senses something isn’t right, but he doesn’t know where the danger is coming from…or why. He’s sure Emily’s neighbor, Travis McKay, is hiding something, and the man pays way too much attention to Emily. 

To make things even more complicated, a new female officer appears to have her sights set on Seth, and fellow officer Alexander Avery has some sort of connection to a mysterious brothel employee. Seth has a feeling all these odd things are somehow connected—but he knows he’s missing a huge piece of the puzzle.

Jami Denise
Jami Denise is an up and coming writer from Southern California.
She writes Romance, Romantic Suspense, and Erotic Romance.
Her books are always on the spicy side with a little bit of sweet to make you swoon. Her feisty kittens always give the bad boys a run for their money. She likes taking risks, pushing her characters into directions that challenge the reader and take them out of their element. You’ll usually find the unexpected to happen in her stories. Life isn’t always pretty, and she likes to layer her words with true grit.
She is a self-professed cat lady, addicted to coffee, Monster, birthday cake lip balm, and loves all things old,grungy,and fast. She’s well versed in sarcasm, and the F-word is her favorite adjective.
When she doesn’t have her nose in a book, or fingers on a keyboard, she’s spending time with family and friends, watching old movies, and waiting for the next felon to come sweep her off her feet.

L.B. Dunbar
I’d like to say I was always a writer. I’d also like to say that I wrote every day of my life since a child. That I took the teaching advice I give my former students because writing every day improves your writing. I’d like to say I have my ten-thousand hours that makes me a proficient writer. But I can’t say any of those things. I did dream of writing the “Great American Novel” until one day a friend said: Why does it have to be great? Why can’t it just be good and tell a story?
As a teenager, I wrote your typical love-angst poetry that did occasionally win me an award and honor me with addressing my senior high school class at our Baccalaureate Mass. I didn’t keep a journal because I was too afraid my mom would find it in the mattress where I kept my copy of Judy Blume’s Forever that I wasn’t allowed to read as a twelve year old.
I can say that books have been my life. I’m a reader. I loved to read the day I discovered “The Three Bears” as a first grader, and ever since then, the written word has been my friend. Books were an escape for me. An adventure to the unknown. A love affair I’d never know. I could be lost for hours in a book.
So why writing now? I had a story to tell. It haunted me from the moment I decided if I just wrote it down it would go away. But it didn’t. Three years after writing the first draft, a sign (yes, I believe in them) told me to fix up that draft and work the process to have it published. That’s what I did. But one story let to another, and another, and another. Then a new idea came into my head and a new storyline was created.
I was accused (that’s the correct word) of having an overactive imagination as a child, as if that was a bad thing. I’ve also been accused of having the personality of a Jack Russell terrier, full of energy, unable to relax, and always one step ahead. What can I say other than I have stories to tell and I think you’ll like them. If you don’t, that’s okay. We all have our book boyfriends. We all have our favorites. Whatever you do, though, take time for yourself and read a book.
