Happy Release Day to K.A. Linde and her new book Take Me with You – book 2 in the Take Me series. Make sure to enter the giveaway below for a signed set of the series! Good luck!
All of my demons are coming to head.
I thought Ari could push them back.
I thought I could conquer my vices with her at my side.
I thought wrong.
Fear is my new constant.
I thought I could conceal it, contain it, control it.
I thought that now that I had Grant the worst was over.
I thought wrong.
But if we’regoing to survive, wherever you go…take me with you.
Grant and Ari fell in love in the first book of this series. They are not the couple you would normally expect to see together…Ari, the good girl,working hard at her college degree and Grant is the bad boy rocker. Grant has the “manwhore” title, but once he meets Ari, life is changed. Grant surprised me with his softer side in book one, Take Me For Granted (http://amzn.to/1CJcX59)
So when I started this book…on page ONE, Grant showed me again that he is a good guy. He really loves Ari. I think from page one, literally, to the end of the book, Grant showed his undying love for Ari and that is what made me love this book so much. Yes, there are other people “testing” their relationship throughout the book, but Grant’s love and need was shown over and over again. Ari’s love for Grant was evident too!
“I could already feel the ache of missing him settling into my chest. I’d finally found a boy who made my heart skip, and i didn’t want him to go away”
KA Linde is the queen of angst. (Ummm..hello, she wrote the Avoiding Series – the ULTIMATE IN ANGST! http://amzn.to/1yK3kSg <—-only $5.99 for the series) But this book isn’t about running away from each other and not knowing what they want, it’s just a beautiful love story and the reality of being apart, growing up and falling in love.
” She still didn’t realize she was the one person who mattered. She was my life raft”
I really enjoyed seeing the progression of their love and lives together. Kyla has me on page one of this book. Thank you for giving us Grant!
Grant practically bounded across the room until he was directly in front of me. Then, his hands were cupping my cheeks so tenderly that it was as if he thought I might break in half. Without a word, his mouth dropped down on mine, and the kiss was as light as a feather. It was a question, a soft and delicate question, one he had never asked before—permission.
When I didn’t pull away from him, he received his answer. The kiss deepened, and he coaxed all the anger out of me. He drew it out as if sucking venom from an open wound. He kissed me so heatedly and lovingly that not even a drop remained. All that was left was a bottomless well of emotions of how much I loved and missed him.
When I came back into the moment, I heard the catcalls and yells from the people around us. It was then I remembered that we were in a crowded room, surrounded by people, and Grant had kissed the breath out of me. I flushed from head to toe at the attention, but he wouldn’t let me pull away.
“I’m sorry,” he whispered. “I shouldn’t have blown up on you. I shouldn’t have done anything. You’re all that matters.”
I stared up at him in confusion. “Who are you, and what have you done with Grant McDermott?”
He laughed that beautiful glorious laugh, and a smile lit up his whole face. It was that damn smile that had won me over in the first place.
“Run away with me,” he murmured.
“Run away with me. Let’s get out of here.”
“Where are we going?”

If A Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever. But what if he didn’t love you, first?
No-nonsense Liis Lindy is an agent of the FBI. Deciding she is married only to her job, she breaks off her engagement and transfers from Chicago to the field office in San Diego. She loves her desk. She is committed to her laptop. She dreams of promotions and shaking hands with the director after cracking an impossible case.

Though, as many lives as he’s saved, there is one that is beyond his reach. Younger brother Travis is faced with prison time for his involvement in a basement fire that killed dozens of college students, and the media want a conviction. Travis’s only savior is his unusual tie to the mob. In a deal that will spare his brother, Thomas has agreed to recruit Travis into the FBI.
Liis is stubborn, defiant, and yet somehow softens Thomas’s rough edges, making her the perfect agent to accompany him to the ceremony. Posing as a couple, they must travel to Travis & Abby’s beach vow renewal and give him the news, but when the pretending ends, she finds herself wondering if they were pretending at all.
In the second installment of the Maddox Brothers books, experience firsthand the mysterious world of the elusive Thomas Maddox, and how good love can be when you’re not the first, but the last.

No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.
Rules were made to be broken, right?
Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.
told me I’d be an escort; they made it sound so easy.
Really I’m just a high priced call girl.
Desperation brought me to this and it led me to him, my one and only client.
Hating him is easy, he reminds me of my shame.
Wanting him is wrong it fills me with guilt.
Loving him is a losing battle yet it’s become everything.
A gift and a curse, he consumes my every thought and I’d rather play my part in
his bed than to spend one day without him.
Abby’s review 5 stars
“They’re all looking to be the one…. the one who makes me want to take a chance on a real relationship. To that, I say fuck no.”
Alice Tribue’s talent shines in waves in this book! Waves people! When I read the synopsis for this book, no way did I ever think that this would be an emotional read, but it was. Why is that? It’s because Alice Tribue dives so easily into her characters hearts and lets you feel everything they are feeling.
Sage is desperate. You feel her desperation and you want to make it right for her. My heart ached because of what she had to do to survive. How much would you be willing to do to keep a roof over your head?
In some ways, this book questioned my morality. I thought over and over again. Is this okay? Were people taking advantage of Sage? Did Jackson taking advantage?
Then everything about Jackson makes sense. Jackson is all kinds of messed up, but he is this in a sexy, I want to reach out and save you kind of way.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I couldn’t put it down. My day was shot!! Alice Tribue knows how to write characters with depth but moving forward at a speed that keeps you engaged in every moment.
Beautiful, funny and an ambitious businesswoman (with one hell of an ass), Stephanie Robson is one of Linden McGregor’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as he’s known her.
But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed.
Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them were in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.
It sounded like fun and games at the time but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life.
Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line.
The pact is about to change everything.
Note: due to the dirty talk and sexy times, The Pact is not meant for anyone under the age of 18. All characters in THE PACT are in their thirties, therefore this is NOT a new adult book…even though love can mess you up at any age.
Ripped from Heaven, Burned in Hell.
Caught and caged in beauty.
Beauty comes at a cost.
One man holds the key to our survival, to our freedom.
Find out how I lived and lost the greatest thing on earth.
I didn’t see her coming and that will be my downfall.
She will ruin me, take everything from me, and give me everything I can’t have.
I can’t help her. I won’t.
She is innocence. She is strength.
She is my piece of heaven in hell.
I’m not letting her go.

In this Brotherhood you live or die by the three-piece patch. For Hold Dawson, Vice-President of the Hells Highwaymen Motorcycle Club, it’s not just black ink tattooed on his body, but the religion he worships, and the law that governs his life. Nothing else matters. Family by choice and not by blood. More sacred than a shared name. Bound by respect. Loyal to death.
But there’s another side to this life. One the President, Hold’s own father, lives and regulates by.
It’s blood in and blood out and only one man gets to be king.
Excerpt: Meet Hold
He watched her slender artist’s hand caress her taut, tattooed abdomen, instantly jealous that it wasn’t his own blunt fingers that idly drifted across her silky flesh. Her eyes flickered with awareness to where he stood at the end of the bed watching her. It only made his balls draw up tight. His rock-hard erection jutted outward, thick and long. He couldn’t halt his hand from massaging it with slow, steady jerks. His teeth burrowed painfully into his bottom lip. – Hell’s Ink

Eighteen-year-old Bree Bowen has spent her entire life training and working as one of her father’s assassins. Fear has kept her and her best friend, Wes, under her father’s thumb—until now.
When Wes takes matters into his own hands, securing Bree a new identity and a plane ticket to America, he gives her the one chance she’s been desperately seeking.
Learning to live a new life isn’t easy. Add in her new roommate, Reid, who just happens to be a stripper, and things start to get a little crazy. Falling for a man has never been part of her plan, but she can’t seem to stay away from Reid.
When Bree’s past comes crashing back into her life, secrets that she’s fought to keep hidden are revealed, and she’s forced to choose between Reid and the life she could have with him, or Wes, the one man who has always loved her unconditionally.
Regardless of her choice, she must learn the consequences of sin.

Book 2 in the Ruthless People Trilogy.
“One Secret. Multiple Casualties.”
Everything Melody Callahan has ever been told about her past is a lie. Her father lied. Her husband lied. But like all secrets…they come out. Not only is her mother, Aviela, alive but she won’t stop until she tears down everything Liam and Melody have spent the past year building.
With a new target on their back and the media now focused on their family as the Presidential election approaches, Liam and Melody must fight on two battlefronts. Melody is torn between being in love with Liam and wanting to kill him for lying to her. Being in love and showing love are two different things in her world. Liam wants to do anything to protect his family even if that means hurting the people he loves.
Family is everything… but what happens when they’re out for your blood? Everything they have been through is nothing compared to what is coming…
***Warning: This book contains adult language and subject matter including graphic violence and explict sex that may be disturbing for some readers. This book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.***
So, I am not quite sure where to start with this review because this book is all over the place. It’s a mob story, it’s a love story, it’s dark, it’s violent and even sometimes, laugh out loud funny. Have you ever read a book like that? NOPE! Within the past few years I may have possibly read 200+ books and have NEVER come across a book like this.
J.J. McAvoy is a genius writer. I am so invested in Melody and Liam that I couldn’t put this book down, my kindle smacked me in the head on many many occasions!
The banter back and for between Mel and Liam was just awesome…
Liam “You don’t date. I know, but I date. And since marriage is about compromise, I’m going to ignore you”.
Melody “I’m sorry asshole, but how is this a compromise?”
Melody and Liam were forced into this marriage but have been able to overcome quite a bit to become a team. A team of murdering, foul mouthed, hot sex having team, but a team nonetheless. The sex in book one was hot and sexy and again in this book it is, but I also found the love and intimacy between Liam and Mel was heartwarming. The word heartwarming isn’t always used when reviewing a dark novel like this but again, JJ McAvoy has made a book with all the elements needed to keep you reading.
“…he was in pain, and he was growing on me. I wasn’t sure when we had changed into this lovely couple, but with each passing day he was becoming a bigger part of my soul.” Melody
Melody is one bad ass woman. She is a smart, stong, a ruthless murderer, a loving wife, a bad ass boss with balls and and all around bitch of a women. She may be a bitch but you will respect the hell out of her. She has a softer side which we see during this book , which makes her more lovable. Who would have ever said “I respect and love the hell out of a murderer?”, well I just did. To watch Melody deal with the feelings that involve her mother, Aviella, will make you weep.
Liam..ahhh Liam. He’s sexy, hot, strong, cocky, bossy, a ruthless murderer, a loving husband and doesn’t take NO for an answer…ever! He is the ultimate alpha male but a soft side like you would never expect.
This couple is after world domination and they are well on their way. In this book we get to see many points of view, not just Melody and Liam, but Olivia, the pain in the ass sister in law, Neal – Liam’s older brother, Evelyn & Sedric – Liam’s parents, Fedel -Melody’s trustworthy body guard and Declan- Liam’s faithful cousin. With the numerous point of view, we get such a full picture of what is happening within this family.
I can’t say enough about my feelings for this book because it was just awesome, impressive, magnificent and amazing. Ruthless People was on my top 10 for 2014, and yes it’s only 22 days into the year and I am positive, this book will be on my top 10 for 2015!
Congratulation JJ McAvoy on this masterpiece and I can not wait to read book 3 in just a few months.

When she’s not doing one of those three things she is attempting to garden, hanging with her hubby or partaking in some retail therapy. She enjoys connecting with her readers and is having a blast entering into this new world of publishing.
I’D TAKEN HER, but ultimately, she’d taken me.
I’d tried to destroy her, but serendipitously, she’d destroyed me.
This was the beginning of the end.
Not the end of my feelings for her but the way of my life, my world.
Something would have to change.
Something would have to give…
Someone would have to die.
Just thinking of Jethro sent a spasm of desire through my core.
Dammit, what’s happening to me?
A daydream of Jethro slamming to his knees before me and wrenching my legs wide stole my mind. It was so vivid, so real—a trickle of need ran down my inner thigh. I gasped as I imagined his tongue lapping at my clit, his long fingers disappearing inside me—the same finger that I’d tattooed with my name.
Would I come harder knowing he touched me with a finger branded by me? Or would I hold on as tight as I could and make him work for it?
I needed to get rid of this satanic desire. I needed to be free.
My eyes opened, latching onto the detachable showerhead.
I could do it myself…
My heartbeat whizzed with need. I couldn’t fight the churning demand any longer.
Reaching upward, I unhooked the showerhead and turned the water temperature down so as not to burn myself.
Feeling awkward and ridiculous and a hundred times guilty for what I was about to do, I braced my back on the tiled wall and spread my legs a little.
My teeth clamped on my bottom lip as the water pressure tickled my clit.
Oh. My. God.
My eyes rolled back as I grew bolder and pressed the stream of heavenly water harder against my pussy.
Water cascaded down my legs while my torso shivered from sudden cold. My nipples stiffened as I wickedly angled the jet down and down until water shot inside me. Every jet and bubble aroused sensitive flesh, sending my muscles clenching in joy.
My legs trembled as my neck flopped forward and I gave myself over to the exquisite pleasure conjured by an innocuous showerhead.
Starbursts flashed behind my eyelids; Jethro loomed into my mind. I pictured him shrugging out of his black shirt, prowling toward me while unbuckling his belt and unzipping his trousers. I moaned again as my daydream shed his clothing and stood proud and naked before me. He grabbed his cock, pumping himself hard and firm, while his eyes feasted on what I was doing. He didn’t say a word, only watched, then crooked his finger and beckoned me closer.
My heartbeat exceeded recommended limits as I forced myself higher and higher, locking my knees against buckling as an orgasm brewed into being. I rocked the showerhead, biting my lip as the pressure spurted over my clit and then inside me. The rhythm I set was exactly like fucking and I daren’t overthink how I looked or how depraved I felt getting off this way.
My daydream forced its way past my misgivings. My forehead furrowed as I trembled, both welcoming and fighting an orgasm.
Daydream Jethro crept closer, working his cock, a dangerous glint in his eyes. The moment I was within grabbing distance, he captured my waist. “I need to be inside you, Nila.” I put words into Jethro’s mouth, but it was his voice I heard in my heart.
I moaned again, angling the showerhead harder against my clit.
“How do you want it?” my fantasy whispered in my ear as he spun me around and pressed me hard against the wall.
I swallowed hard, answering in my mind. “Fast and…”
“Filthy?” Daydream Jethro’s nose nuzzled the back of my ear, sending shockwaves down my spine. “I can fuck you filthy.”
I couldn’t speak. But I didn’t have to. My fantasy knew exactly how I needed it. Jethro bit the back of my shoulder, spreading my legs wider with his.
“Fuck me, Jethro Hawk,” I whispered.
“Oh, I will. Believe me, I will.” Without further warning, he dug his fingers into my hips and slammed inside me.
My fingers went numb as I slid the showerhead from clit to entrance. I cried out as water shot inside at the same time as Jethro thrust into me from behind, sliding deep and fast, stretching me deliciously painfully.
My heart exploded with bliss. An orgasm squeezed every atom, getting ready to hurl me into the stratosphere.
Jethro thrust again and I rode my new friend the showerhead.
“Oh, God. Yes,” I hissed, rocking harder. “Yes, yes…”
A masculine cough sounded. “You continue to surprise me, Ms. Weaver; at least this time, I rather enjoy it.”
Everything crashed into awareness. My daydream shattered, fracturing by my feet like broken glass. I squealed and dropped the showerhead. It turned into a water snake, spewing water left and right, wriggling like some terrible demon.
Jethro snickered. “You’re using up the entire Hall’s supply of hot water. Are you planning on saving some for the rest of the inhabitants of my home?”
