Title: Balance Check

A #MyNewLife Novel

Author: M.E. Carter

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: August 18, 2017

Our Review: 

  I needed Balance Check (book 2 in the #MyNewLife Series) after the way Getting A Grip left me hanging! I was really rooting for Elena to find her Greg (or at least a little bit of Tripp on the side!) 

“Tripp flashes me a perfect smile full of perfect teeth and a perfectly wicked twinkle in his eye. I may be a tad dazzled by him. Just a tad.” 

Greg returns but Elena is wary of handing him her heart again and worried that he can’t be counted on to stick around and put her first in his life. 

“But years of getting screwed over has made her leery and less trusting.”

Balance Check is an easy to read story that highlights the heart and humor (and maybe a bit of a moral) that can be found in the everyday.  

“Yes, I’m desperate. No, I don’t want to seem that way. She likes calm, cool, collected Greg. I can introduce her to neurotic, overly-excited Greg later.” 

I loved this whole story and especially the adorable epilogue, but for some reason I’m now craving hot dogs! 😉 
4.5 Stars!

BLURB

 Life has a funny way of throwing you off balance.

 Take me for example. I spent years in a bad marriage with a self-serving ass, only to have the love of my life show up when I least expected him. Greg helped me on my journey of self discovery and taught me that, no, I’m not perfect. But I’m perfectly me. It was an amazing journey.

 We laughed hard. We loved even harder.

 And then he was suddenly and cruelly ripped away from me by the unclenching jaws of fate.

 Ok, so it wasn’t that dramatic. And I really need to stop watching the Investigation Channel.

But now Greg is back and as it turns out, re-incorporating someone into your life isn’t that easy. Between jobs, kids, and barely-there friendships, life and love can be messy. Making it all work is a balancing act.

But we’re determined to get it in check.

Our Review: 

 Getting A Grip is a wonderful and unique story that is more than a RomCom. Although it is definitely humorous, it is also real and full of heart and emotion. 

“Elena, you’re a woman, not a child. You’re supposed to have curves and scars and embellishments.” 

“Embellishments? Is that what we’re calling cellulite now?”

Elana is a 40 year old divorced woman trying to navigate and ‘get a grip’ on life and love after her husband left her for “Home-Wrecking Husband-Stealing Barbie.” 

“I would have laid into her so hard.” 

“No, you wouldn’t have.” She pulls the door open and we step inside the cool building as I concede her point. 

“Ok, fine, I wouldn’t have. But I would have thought very strongly about it!” 

There is snark, attempted flirting, lots of baby gymnastics, juice boxes, hot dogs and “A perfect, beautiful, Adonis of a guy….” and an ending that left me dying to read the next part of this story in book two.  
4.5 Stars!

AUTHOR BIO

 

Mother, reader, storyteller—ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.

  Synopsis

 Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.

 Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d think the hose in his pants is as big as the one on his fire truck. Not that I know anything about that nor do I want to. Nope, not at all. He’s already been forgotten like last season’s Michael Kors.

 CeCe Kensington is as pretentious and spoiled as they come. The ridiculous purses she shoulders around are as big as her attitude. And don’t get me started on her mile-long legs or full, glossy lips that are meant to be wrapped around a guy’s… If she only knew the dirty things I think about doing to that sassy mouth of hers, she’d be hightailing it back to her side of town.

When the beautiful boutique owner and sexy firefighter meet in the most unlikely situation, their two worlds collide, creating an explosion of misperceptions and combustible heat, trapping them in a fire they never saw coming. 

  

💘🔥💘 Review by TashaM 💘🔥💘

As always 6 stars to K.C Lynn. Boy this woman knows how to write. There has never been a book by her that I didn’t love. That didn’t have me sitting up all night reading. This book most definitely is Top 10 of the Year.

So Cockloft is CeCe’s book and if you loved her before. You in for a treat. From start to end I hooked. CeCe is everything we love and more. This woman is who I wanna be when I grow up. I love her Jist for life and her Fun, Sassy attitude. I adore her saying it as it and never being someone she is not.
I love how easily she drops her Walls around Gabe.
Then again no stands a chance with him. The man is One in a Million. No way you not gonna fall inlove with him. He is exactly what CeCe needs in a man.
I love their Banter, their Sexy talk, their Pillow talk but most of all the comic Lines in this book will have you Giggling like a school girl. Well in my case trying not to laugh too hard cos I might Pee Myself.

This book is damn Good. It definitely gets all the stars. From Start to end was just Beautifully written. The low Angst and Drama is exactly what the Doctor ordered for me., And boy did I get in buckets. I have to tell you there are moments you can’t help but tear up and there are moments that will set your panties on fire.
This book is the perfect example of just a little of everything at it’s perfection.

Grab it now and be prepared to be Laugh and swoon and Fan yourself.
Enjoy!!!!!

 #NewRelease #HisToBreak #Liam&Wyatt #DebutPairing #Instalove #Safe #YouKnowYouWantIt


Deep waters are treacherous enough, but Everly Mantel never thought she would lose her heart there. But when the hunky, gruff captain of a local fishing boat turns her tender ass bright red, all her former ideas about how love didn’t fit into her life are turned upside down.

James Morelock took one look at those khaki shorts and the wild tangle of red hair and something inside him caught fire.  Years of telling himself love was for fools broke over the bow of his heart and opened a spot he’d forever thought closed.  Only, he’s not sure his version of love is something this smart newcomer to Port Hope will understand. 

Will these two weather the storms of their past and finally give love a chance?  Or will James’s rough love and possessive obsession be more than Everly is willing to accept?


Author’s Note:  Liam and Wyatt will smoke your sardines straight out of the can with their debut collaboration.  Hot, rough, safe and just the right amount of adventure, you will be fanning yourself and rooting for these two to find their happily ever after.  Which they will.  Guaranteed.

She’s a 40 something regular lady who just happens to love badass alpha males who pull your hair and love their women with a lethal passion.

When she’s not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The Walking Dead can’t have a new episode every night, or looking cross-eyed at some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.

Toying with Her by Prescott Lane

Release Date: August 17th

 Contemporary Romance


Toying with Her, an all-new standalone from Prescott Lane is coming LIVE!!!

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

 So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.  

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.  

Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

♥️♥️♥️♥️About The Lucky Heart♥️♥️♥️♥️

Life on his ranch could be their future. If they can overcome their past.

 

Felicity’s life story reads like the script to a bad soap opera. Girl’s high-school boyfriend becomes a drug addict. Girl falls for boyfriend’s best friend. Girl leaves them both behind only to return home years later for murdered ex-boyfriend’s funeral. Now she’s back home in Montana, ready to start fresh.

Silas doesn’t need much. He’s got a great horse, close friends and the Lucky Heart ranch, but something has always been missing. He’s not an idiot. He knows the missing piece is Felicity. And now that she’s returned to Prescott, he’s got a second chance to win her heart. This time, the only thing standing in his way is history. Drudging up the past is going to be about as painful as playing tug of war with barbed wire. But if they can heal old wounds, he’ll get the girl he should have had all along.

Exclusive Excerpt:

What a fucking horrible day.

Wes’s funeral had been about as much fun as shoveling horse shit. I’d gone home to the ranch afterward and gotten straight to work, hoping it would distract me, but after three hours, I knew nothing was going to take my mind off Felicity.

Fourteen years. I hadn’t seen her in fourteen years, and today was the day she’d come back to Prescott. For Wes. She’d stayed away from her family, from me, for fourteen years, but she’d come back for Wes?

That stung.

Then on top of it all, she’d acted like an ice queen. It made the fact that she was still the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen even harder to stomach. I just couldn’t believe the harsh and rude woman at Wes’s funeral had been my Felicity.

So here I was, standing outside her hotel room door in the freezing cold, needing to see for myself if she had really changed that much. Because if she had, then maybe I could finally let her go.

I raised my fist and banged on the door, taking out some of my frustration on its wooden face.

“Coming,” Felicity called. She must not have checked the peephole because when she opened the door, she sucked in a sharp breath.

Fuck. Why did she have to be so beautifully sad? All I wanted was to pull her into my arms. Her eyes had been covered at the funeral, hidden behind huge black sunglasses, but now I saw they were red and puffy. She’d cried for losing Wes. Had she ever cried that much over me?

Without a word, she stepped back and swung an arm out for me to come in. I stepped inside and crossed the room but didn’t sit.

“How are you?” she asked after closing the door.

“Fine. You?”

She shrugged. “I’ve had better days.”

“So since you’re in a bad place, it gives you the right to treat people like shit?” The words flew out of my mouth without thought and I regretted them the second she winced.

She took a calming breath. “I know I didn’t handle myself the right way at the funeral. I’m sorry for being rude to you and I’ll be apologizing to my family on Christmas.”

I scoffed. “Did you apologize to your mom and brother for not visiting for fourteen fucking years?”

She winced again.

Fuck. What was wrong with me? I had always tried to keep a hold on my temper where Felicity was concerned but again I was blurting out attacks.

This time, she didn’t keep that calm composure. Her spine stiffened and her lip curled. “That’s none of your business,” she snapped. “I apologize for being rude to you at the funeral, but if all you’re here to do is yell at me, get out.”

I closed the gap between us, standing right in her space and glaring down at her. Most people, men and women, would have cowered. I usually intimidated people with this glare, but not Felicity. Time hadn’t dulled her feisty spirit in the slightest. She didn’t move an inch, just glared right back.

“You’d like that,” I sneered, “wouldn’t you?”

“Like what?” she asked through gritted teeth.

“For me to leave so you can go back to pretending that avoiding this place and the people here wasn’t totally fucking selfish.” I was being a complete and total asshole. I knew it, I just couldn’t stop. All the pain I’d buried for years had bubbled up to the surface and was spewing out of my mouth.

Felicity’s eyes welled but she didn’t lose her edge. “What else? Obviously, you came here to pick a fight. To hurt me back. So, keep going. If that’s what it will take to make you feel better, then please, keep going.”

Another thing that hadn’t changed: she called me on my shit. My anger deflated and I shook my head. “It’s not making me feel better.”

“Then what will?”

Not fighting with her would make me feel better. Having her explain what had happened all those years ago would make me feel better. Hearing why she’d stayed away for so long would make me feel better.

But I didn’t tell her any of that. Instead, I crushed my mouth to hers and hugged her tight so she couldn’t push me away. Not that she tried. Her arms wrapped around my waist and she fisted my shirt in her hands.

I poured all of the pain and anger she had caused me into our kiss. She gave me all of her grief and heartache. Neither of us stopped until we were both exhausted from hot and angry sex.

While she slept on my side, I stared at the ceiling, wishing tonight had gone a whole lot differently. I wished I weren’t still drawn to her. I wished that she had come back for me, not Wes. I wished that I weren’t such a damned fool, always waiting on the sidelines, ready to pick her up when he broke her heart.

All tonight did was prove one thing.

History really does repeat itself.

🐴🐴🐴 Review by TashaM 🐴🐴🐴

When I woke and saw this book on my Kindle Monday Morning Made. I have been dying to get my hands on the next book in this series. From the Prologue to the Epilogue I was glued. I finished it in one sitting that’s how Trapped I was when it came to this book.
10 Stars Hands Down. Favorite in the series….
So this was the 3rd book in the series and by far the best one yet.
That says something because from the first book I picked up by Devney Perry her Writing had become an addiction.

This book is about Silas and Felicity. Now I know you wanna hate her but trust she is such an amazing Heroine you gonna Fall head over heals for her.

We met Felicity because she is Jesse’s sister. She has a sharp tongue but when we see why your heart will just break for her.
Silas and her have such a beautiful yet tumultuous past. At the same time it’s clear as day that they were meant for each other. Even growing up its clear as day that belong together.

Silas is such Wonderful man. His heart is so huge. He is so incredibly patient and understanding. I’m so glad he has her heal his heart and wounds. I was so happy he was getting his HEA.
Silas is really what dreams are made of.

This story is so fantastically Written. There are times where your heart just breaks for these two, times you heart is beeming with Happiness and times that it’s racing either from the hot, Beautiful sexy time or because of the angst.

Devney surpasses all expectations with every book she gives. Her Writing is fantastic as always. She knows how to capture your attention and not let you go.

I love how Brilliantly she throws in Characters from the previous books. I loved those moments because of how much I love all the characters old and new.
I’m always so impatient for her next book and once again she has left me panting for the next book.

Enjoy!!!!

Royally Endowed 6Stars Must Read

ROYALLY ENDOWED
The Royally Series Book 3
By Emma Chase
Release Day: August 14th 2017
 

 
 
Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??
 
Sexy. As. Hell.
 
And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.
 
For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.
 
To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.  
 
The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.
 
But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.
 
Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.
 
But there’s only one woman he wants.
 
For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.
 
He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.
 
But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.
 
Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

Ellie and Logan are the best. I love princes and princesses but Emma Chase has given me a love for the royal relations. I may have begged and pleaded for an ARC and when it was given to me I devoured it.

https://www.tenor.co/G2we.gif

Every chance I get I have screamed how amazing and funny this book is.

https://www.tenor.co/sZti.gif

This book was more then I expected it to be. The sass that Ellie uses throughout this book made me smile. How Logan admires Ellie from not so far made me want to swoon.

https://www.tenor.co/vRZE.gif

Emma always tells the best stories but this one takes the Royal Cake to a whole new level. This will be one of your favorite reads. One you won't soon forget.

EXCERPT
Prologue
Logan
Some men think with their cocks.
You know the type. Quick smooth-talkers, shifty eyes always scanning for a nice pair of legs, a set of full tits, or a tight arse they can pant after.
Other blokes think too much with their brains. You know that type too. Annoyingly careful, slow-moving, constantly parsing their words like they already know whatever they’re saying is going to come back and take a bite out of them.
I’m not either of those.
I always go with my gut. When it clenches with a warning, I act—no hesitation. When it tugs and nudges, I pause and reevaluate. When it twists and writhes, I know, guaranteed, I’ve cocked up big-time.
My gut is my best friend, my conscience, my most lethal asset.
And it has never let me down.
It’s my gut that drags me to her door. That roots me in place as I knock. That gives me the words—pleading, unfamiliar remorseful words—I’ll gladly say to make this right.
To get her back.
Because while my gut is brilliant, sometimes I can be a real fucking idiot.
Yesterday was one of those times.
“Ellie. It’s me—open up, we need to talk.”
I sense movement on the other side of the solid oak door—not in sounds or shifting shadows beneath it, but more of an awareness. I can feel her in there. Nearby and listening.  
“Go away, Logan.”
Her voice is tight, higher-pitched than usual. Upset.
“Ellie, please. I was a twat, I know . . .” I’m not keen on begging from the hallway, but if that’s what it takes . . .  “I’m sorry. Let me in.”
Ellie is difficult to anger, quick to forgive; she just doesn’t have it in her to hold a grudge. So her next words fall like an axe—cutting my legs right off from under me.
“No, you were right. The princess’s sister and the East Amboy bodyguard don’t make sense—we’ll never last.”
Did I actually say that to her? What the fuck is wrong with me? What I feel for her is the one thing in my life that makes sense. That matters.
But I never told her that.
Instead . . . instead, I said all the wrong things.
I brace my palm against the smooth wood, leaning forward, wanting to be as near to her as possible. “Elle . . .”
“I’ve changed my mind, Logan.”
If a corpse could speak, it would sound exactly like my Ellie does now. Flat, lifeless.  
“I want the fairy tale. I want what Olivia has . . . castles and carriages . . . and you’ll never be able to give me that. I would just be settling for you. You’ll never be able to make me happy.”
She doesn’t mean that. They’re my words—the insecurities I put on her—that she’s hurling back in my face.  
But God, it fucking hurts to hear. Physically hurts—stabbing deep into the pit of my stomach, crushing my chest, grinding my bones. I meant it when I said I would die for her . . . and right now, it feels like I am.
I grab the doorknob to walk inside, to see her face. To see that she doesn’t mean it.
“Ellie—”
“Don’t come in!” she screeches like I’ve never heard her before. “I don’t want to see you! Go away, Logan. We’re done—just go!”
I breathe hard—that’s what you do when pain wrecks you, breathe through it. Then I swallow bile, straighten up, turn around and walk down the hall. Away from her. Just like she wants, like she asked. Like she screamed.
My brain tells me to move faster—get the hell out of there, cut my losses and lick my wounds. And my heart—Christ—that poor bastard’s too battered and bloody to say anything at all.
But then, just over halfway down the hall, my steps slow until I stop completely.
Because my gut . . . it strains through the hurt. Rebels. It shouts that this isn’t right. This isn’t her. Something’s off.
And even more than that . . . something is very, very wrong.
I glance up and down the quiet hall—not a guard or a maid in sight. I look back at the door. Closed and silent and still.
Then I turn and march straight back to it. I don’t knock, or wait, or ask for permission. In one move, I turn the knob and step inside.
What I see there stops me cold.
Because whatever I was expecting, it sure as fuck wasn’t this.
Not at all . . .
 

NewRelease #SoGood by Nicola Rendell #AnAlphaDogsSeries #OneClickIt #5Stars #RomCom



OUR REVIEW:
 

So Good is a super swoony, sweet friends to lovers tale. An accidental view shows Max a different side of Rosie and his eyes are opened to what has been right in front of him all along. 

“I had to get out of there. I needed a cold shower, or a call from my tax guy, or an unexpectedly urgent trip to the DMV—anything to stop myself seeing her stark naked every g-d time I looked at her.”

I was drawn into the story by the incredible humor and then captivated by the characters including Julia Caesar, the cat and Cupcake, the cutest dog. Max is a bit of a pushy alpha, but protective and thoughtful to a fault. Rosie is kind and independent, an awesome heroine who deserves her HEA. 

“You know, I never really had crushes.” He straightened out his dessert spoon and lifted his eyes to meet mine. “Because I think it was always you.”

Nicola Rendell has again given us a sweet, funny and Hot, Hot, Hot story to savor and swoon over. 5 Stars!!

SYNOPSIS

On the roof of a house outside Truelove, Maine, master carpenter Max Doyle looks down through a skylight and sees the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on. She’s naked, she’s gorgeous, and everything about her is perfect, down to the ball-busting tattoo of a rose that wraps around her hip. But it isn’t just any woman making his knees buckle. It’s his best friend, Rosie Madden. And as he stands there, mesmerized and precariously close to toppling off the roof, he knows he’ll never, ever be able to look at her the same way again.
Rosie can’t help but notice that Max is suddenly acting very strange—lots of long stares, totally tongue-tied, and not at all like the slightly cocky hunk she’s proud to call her best friend. She can’t figure it out, until later that night when Max rescues her from the world’s worst date, challenges her to a game of pool, and shows her just exactly what she’s got him thinking about. Repeatedly.
But life is complicated. Rosie’s cat, Julia Caesar, wants to eat Max’s dog Cupcake for an afternoon snack. A dream job threatens to pull them apart. And another glance through the skylight changes everything, one more time. Yet try as they might, they can’t go back to being just friends, because falling in love with the one you’ve always adored?
It feels so good.

#NewRelease The Edge of Us by Veronica Larsen #Standalone #5Stars #ContemporaryRomance


Our Review: 

The Edge of Us completely intrigued and enthralled me from the start. It had a mysterious air that kept me off balance trying to find which characters I could connect with, but everyone was keeping secrets. My sympathies were fickle and bounced from character to character at the turn of a page or the drop of a secret. 

“I step backward toward the door, watching her expression change. Her brows knit together and secrets swim past her eyes.” 

I loved the fun bantering between Mila and Andrew! I think that was when we saw the softer sides of these two. Mila is such an amazing character. She was strong and independent but with that she refused to show any vulnerability. 

“Do you do competitive jar opening on your time off? You work at an office. What do you do with these things?” I poke at his biceps” 

Amazing writing and surprising twists kept me turning pages as fast as I could read. Was I unraveling a second-chance, love triangle or friends to lovers tale? It is a completely original storyline that had me guessing what I was even reading.

 SYNOPSIS

Eight years ago, Cole Van Buren left me at the altar without a single explanation. My heart’s been at a standstill ever since, the anger keeping me from moving on. Keeping me from seeing the man who’s been right in front of me all this time…

Andrew’s been the friend I needed, the one constant through the hardest times of my life. But one night, the lines blur and we’re tipped into something more. Just when I’m ready to explore what we could be…

My ex comes back.

Cole says he didn’t come to get me back, but I should know better. The answers he dangles overhead are the ones I need to finally let go.

 Except there’s no such thing as closure, only a past that wants to pull you backward.

MARY B. MOORE

 

I’ve always been an avid reader and writer, so when my best friends (three males who drive me closer to insanity daily) dared me to publish, in fact triple dared with no returnseys, I couldn’t say no – the forfeits are always painful. Deciding to shelve all of the work I’d ever done and to start with a new project was my best idea though, at least I think so. After being on the brink of insanity many times, I’m delighted to confirm that I came out of it with my dignity still intact…just!

I’m the daughter of diplomats who has lived all over the world and you’d be hard placed to figure out where my accent was from – it’s a Heinz 57 variety accent. My poor child has also picked up my accent and vocabulary, which is predominantly American I guess. We should really be classed as having United Nations accents.

My projects so far are a contemporary romance series called the Providence Series, an MC series which I love called Luther’s Vengeance and also a paranormal series. In Luther’s Vengeance, I’ll be using my background to make it as ‘real life’ as possible, never let it be said my childhood was boring.

For now though, it’s going to mainly be about the romance…lots of romance!!

SARAH O’ROURKE

 

Sarah O’Rourke is actually TWO besties who live three states apart and write at all hours of the day and night! Born and raised in the Southern United States, they are overly attached to their one-click accounts, can’t make it through the day without copious doses of caffeine, and spend way too much time on the phone with each other.

Between them, they have four children and eighteen years of marriage…one to a super soldier and the other to egomaniac engineer. They hate empty chocolate wrappers and writer’s block, love to talk to readers…and oh, by the way, they write about strong, kick-ass women and hot alpha heroes!

💥💥💥💥BLURB💥💥💥💥

Erik Anderson is paying for his mistakes and enduring every bit of pain that comes his way. After all, if it weren’t for him, the girl who gave him more than he deserved would still be alive. Even if he were to be put out of his misery, he’d never see her again. Considering angels go to heaven and sinners go to hell, Erik’s going to burn.

Polly Madison has never had it easy. She wouldn’t even know what that looked like. Young and naive, she learned the hard way how vindictive some men can truly be. She’s fought her whole life for stability and control, both of which she refuses to give up ever again since she’s older and wiser now.

When Polly and Erik run into each other in the most clichéd way possible, it shouldn’t have meant anything.

In his arms, Polly felt safer than she ever has before.

Lost in her eyes, Erik sees a future he’d given up on.

They try to fight it. Try to deny something neither is prepared for. But when his own insecurities put her in harm’s way, Erik knows protecting Polly’s life is more important than continuing to wreck his.
