Claire Contreras latest book ‘Half Truths’ has a very ominous feeling

You’ve heard of these groups – the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries – I’m the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I’m fresh meat. New blood. New money, too.

They think they’ll elbow past me, that I’m here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they’ll find out soon enough that I’m not.

I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I’m not. I’m here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs.

I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn’t here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn’t here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He’s saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead.

It’s a game I’m willing to play.

I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I’ll be the first to make it out intact.

THE DAY HE CAME BACK IS LIVE!

 

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Penelope Ward

SYNOPSIS

It was the summer of my life.

I’d met the guy of my dreams.

Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits.

But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.

He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.

Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

 

What a summer it was.

Until it all ended—badly.

 

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.

That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.

I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

 

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.

But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?

What if he loved someone else now?

I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

 

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

PLAYING FOR KEEPS

Hot Jocks, Book 1

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: August 13th

 

 

About the Book

 

I’ve never been so stupid in my entire life. 

 

Elise Parrish, my teammate’s incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister, should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn’t get the memo. 

 

After our team won the championship, our flirting turned physical, and I took her to bed. Then shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake. 

 

She thinks I don’t remember that night – but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I’ll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips….

 

And now I’ve spent three months trying to get her out of my head, but I’m starting to understand she’s the only girl I’ll ever want.  

 

I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won’t be easily convinced.  

 

That’s okay, because I’m good under pressure, and this time, I’m playing for keeps.

 

Get ready to meet your new favorite hot jocks in an all new series of stand-alone novels. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

Can Vaughn open herself up to love in ‘Resist’ by K. Bromberg

Resist - BT banner

A sexy, emotional roller coaster ride with explosive chemistry between a powerhouse couple. I was hooked from the first page!”– J.T. Geissinger, author

Resist, the first in an all-new irresistible duet by New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg is available now!

!!Resist cover

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Driven series comes a powerful romance about reaching great heights through low depths.

Who says you have to play by the rules to get what you want?

Agreeing to meet Ryker Lockhart is my first mistake. Rich, handsome, and more than intriguing, he thinks blackmail will bend me to his will.

But he’s wrong.

I may have done a few things that weren’t exactly legal, but I have my own reasons for that. The last thing I’m going to do is let some high-powered divorce attorney come into my life, have my body, and rule my heart. Not to mention ruin everything that I have carefully built in just a short amount of time.

But as much as I try to resist him, and against my better judgment, there is something about him that has me agreeing to his proposal.

I’m putting everything on the line for him. I just hope I won’t lose everything when this is all over.


Review

ughn’s story and life is anything but easy. She is determined to win the battle in her life and Ryker is only a complication. Ryker loves his life and doesn’t want any complications either. But that all changes when he meets Vaughn and she turns his world upside down.

There are clues that will explain about Vaughn’s past and it doesn’t take much to figure it out. I like that while I knew what happened, I like that Bromberg took time getting the two main characters to get together. My favorite kind of love stories or romance books are ones that are realistic, as if they could really happen.

Ryker is a jerk at times and sometimes I don’t know if I want to like him, but then he does this real big swoon worthy thing and I am a puddle. Bromberg has me on the ropes so we will see where it goes from here.

That ending. Wtf. I have so many questions and I need answers now. If I were you, don’t read this book if you don’t have access to the second book. You will thank me!

Excerpt:

“It won’t be as easy as you think to walk away from the high life. Money is a powerful thing. Once you have it, it’s hard as hell to live without, Vaughn.”

I start to protest but then realize he doesn’t get it. He knows how much he is paying me. He sees the expensive clothes and jewelry I have on but has no clue they are from thrift stores and pawnshops.

“I’ll walk away.”

The chuckle he emits scrapes over my nerves and irritates them. “No, you won’t. You’re addicted to the power of it. Of knowing you can bring a man to his knees. Of the ability to use your body to get exactly what you want.”

“You don’t know a thing about me.”

But the ghost of a smirk that plays at the corner of his mouth makes me fear he just might. “You don’t have to be embarrassed by it, Vaughn. I get off on the same type of power when I’m in court. It’s a high. Something once you have a taste of, you only seem to want more of.”

“Don’t paint your experience on my canvas,” I murmur.

“Here we are,” he says, pulling my attention to our surroundings instead of to him. We’re standing outside the entrance to The Club, and every part of me deflates a little at the thought of having to go back inside with him.

Of having to play more of the part, when this, me getting to be a little more of myself, has been so unexpected and nice.

“Here we are,” I repeat.

We stare at each other, the shadows of the night playing over his face and reminding me I barely know this man and that I do, in fact, want to know him more.

“I’d be more than happy to drive you home—”

“But—”

He puts a finger to my lips. “But that’s too personal.” He steps into me so that we’re both in the shadows now on the broad sidewalk.

“It’s too personal,” I agree as I draw in the scent of him, the feel of his palms as they run up and down my arms. And for the briefest of moments I forget what I’m doing here and that he’s paid me for it because all I can think about is him kissing me. All I want is him to.

“Why don’t we go—”

His lips close ever so slowly over mine so that I have no choice but to sink into the kiss. A kiss that’s soft and tender when every other one we’ve shared thus far has been raging with a lascivious desire.

But not this one.

My body heats up nerve by nerve. Muscle by muscle. Sensation by sensation.

Until he leans back so his forehead rests against mine and we breathe in the same air.

“Good night, Vaughn.”

What?

My head snaps up as Ryker takes a step back, regret owning every part of his expression, including the desire warring in his eyes.

“I don’t understand.” Flummoxed, I stand where I am and just watch him as he takes another step back and points to the taxi pulled up to the curb at my back.

“Your cab is here.” His smile is pained.

“But . . .”

He lifts a hand in silent goodbye before he turns the corner, leaving me staring after him as the taxi driver ushers me into the cab.

Tears sting my eyes as he pulls away from the curb.

Ryker just gave me exactly what I asked for—no sex—and yet every part of me is confused by it.

Because I want him.

And now I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to do about it.

December and Gareth fight for their chance in ‘Until December’ by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Title: Until December
Series: Until Her #5
Author: Aurora Rose Reynolds
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2019
Blurb
Gareth Black is drawn to December Mayson the moment he spots her across
the room at her cousin’s wedding. When he approaches the beautiful woman, she
captivates him with her shyness and wit, making him crave her.
With a pull so strong it’s impossible to ignore, December knows there’s
something between her and Gareth. She just hopes they’re capable of jumping the
hurdles ahead of them.
Two boys, an ex, a surprise that will change everything, and a
disgruntled co-worker, guarantee these two will have their work cut out for
them if they are going to find their happily ever after.


Review

In this latest book December takes center stage as she has to juggle being a girlfriend to Gareth and making sure not to step on any toes with the people in his family. Can she handle his ex?

One of the reasons why I like this series is that Reynolds focuses a lot of attention on the romance scenes and sprinkles a decent story in there as well. With this book, we get more story then romance. There is a lot of build up with December and Gareth that it takes about 50% of the book before they finally get together.

Since there was more of a story focus in this one, I would have liked a bigger BOOM moment at the end. There was one that came out of left field because I was expecting something completely different. Some may find this a good thing, but for me, it just was very confusing.

The reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 3 stars is because I really liked the couple as a couple. They were very sweet and cute and since reading about them together made me laugh/smile I couldn’t give the book a 3 star. But reading this, you need to possible lower standards in comparison to the other books in the series.
