Dirty Letters

Release Date: 11/05/2019

 

A Contemporary Romance Novel

 

New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

 

EXCERPT REVEAL:

 

The small dining room table had a pile of mail. I’d had Dad’s mail forwarded to my house, so mostly it was just catalogs and junk. Once a month, Mrs. Cascio sent me everything that arrived, even though I’d told her it wasn’t necessary. I mindlessly fingered through the pile, not expecting to see anything worth keeping. But I stopped at an envelope addressed to me—well, not me, but Luca Ryan. That was a name I hadn’t heard in a long time. In second grade, my teacher, Mrs. Ryan, started a pen pal writing program with a small town in England. We weren’t allowed to use our real last names for safety reasons, so the entire class used her last name—hence I was Luca Ryan. I checked out the return address for the sender’s name. 

G. Quinn 

Wow, really? It couldn’t be.

I squinted at the postmark. It was from a PO box in California, not England, but I didn’t know any other Quinn other than Griffin. And the handwriting did look pretty familiar. But it had been close to eight years since we’d exchanged letters. Why would he write now? Curious, I ripped it open and scanned right to the bottom of the letter for the name. Sure enough, it was from Griffin. I started at the beginning. 

 

Dear Luca, 

 

Do you like scotch? I remember you said you didn’t like the taste of beer. But we never did get around to comparing our taste in hard liquor. Why is that, you might ask? Let me remind you—because you stopped answering my letters eight damn years ago. I wanted to let you know, I’m still pissed off about that. My mum used to say I hold grudges. But I prefer to think of it as I remember the facts. And the fact of the matter is, you suck. There, I’ve said it. I’ve been holding that shit in for a long time. Don’t get me wrong—I’m not obsessive or anything. I don’t sit in my house thinking about you all day long. In fact, there have been months that go by when thoughts of you don’t even enter my brain. But then some random thing will pop into my head out of the blue. Like I’ll see some kid in a pram eating black licorice, and I’ll think of you. Side note—I’ve tried it again as an adult, and I still think it tastes like the bottom of my shoe, so perhaps it’s that you just have no taste. You probably don’t even like scotch. Anyway, I’m sure this letter won’t find its way to you. Or if by some miracle it does, you won’t answer. But if you’re reading this, you should know two things. 

1. The Macallan 1926 is worth the extra cash. Goes down smooth. 

2. You SUCK. 

 

Later, traitor, Griffin 

 

What in the hell?

BLURB

 

I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.

Until one day it did.

Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.

Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.

Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.

 But what I found could change everything.

Claire Contreras latest book ‘Half Truths’ takes you on a suspenseful ride, with an ending that leaves you at the edge of your seat

Blurb

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.

*This is a complete standalone novel*


Review

The story follows Mae as she transfers to the school her brother was at when something mysterious happens that caused him to leave. When she gets there she finds she may have bitten off more then she could chew.

There were some things that I was not a fan of with Mae and Logan’s relationship. I didn’t start really liking his character until the final few chapters of the book. He would say or do things that made me wonder why Mae even liked him in the first place. Yeah I know we all love the bad boy thing but Logan just wasn’t tickling my fancy.

The flow is my biggest negative for the book. There were gaps in time (which is fine to have in a book) but there weren’t any clear explanation of time passing. Also there were things that just happened that came out of nowhere and i was confused how we got there.

The ending was able to save this book from being rated 3 stars for me. It twisted and turned and changed everything that you thought you knew. Some of the things I had figured out but there were still things that will blow your mind.

This book wasn’t one of my favorite from Contreras but it was a decent enough book. I had hoped for more and the flow was all over the place. I think there was a goal that she had in mind that sometimes she didn’t take the time to develop it. There were quite a few surprises that kept me intrigued but I had hoped for more in the end.

TRYING TO SCORE

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: November 12, 2019

 

 

About the Book

 

Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive … Double check.

 

Despite his demanding schedule, he still finds time to annoy me. I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.

 

But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn’t have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.

 

Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?

 

Is me.

 

Note: This high-heat standalone is chock-full of scorching banter and steamy good times. He’s a testosterone-dripping hockey player who wants a second chance. She’s a tough as nails attorney intent on making partner. Frienemies to lovers. No cliffhanger. Enjoy!

 

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new stand-alone novel. 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 is perfect for you!

Review

I had high expectations for this story considering how the last book ended. Memphis is trying not to stay alive as she tries to find out what happened to her father. Cannon is harboring Memphis’s secret while also struggling with the demands of his family.

There was some ups and downs for my feelings in the story. I had to power through some parts because I was hoping that it would be worth it in the end. It was an interesting enough story where it kept me interested, just not one of those stories that I couldn’t put down.

One highlight i can take from the story is the fact that Cannon and Creighton finally get their reunion. It’s no surprise that Karas would make Cannon work for it, considering that he considered Cannon as a brother even before knowing the truth and hates that he was in the not know. As we all known, Karas needs to be in the know.

I would have liked to have seen more of a umph at the end. Once we get to the big reveal, it felt rushed, as if we were just trying to end the story, rather then rounding it out a bit. I would have liked to have seen more of a struggle and more drama I suppose. Especially since there was this big build up that there was going to be some big explosive moment.

While I did enjoy the book, its not one of my favorites. It doesn’t in any way change how I feel about March’s work. I just think that for the alpha males, there are better ones in the books that she has written that I like better. Cannon is ok, but he was just a little too over the top for me.

Rating: C+

Can Vaughn handle the whole truth? Find out in the finale for K. Bromberg’s latest book ‘Reveal’

I play to win, and I won’t let anything—or anyone—get in the way of what I want.

REVEAL, the raw, sexy, and jaw-dropping finale to the Wicked Ways series by New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg, is available now!

cover169622-medium

The first time I met Vaughn Sanders, I knew I wanted her. Confident, intelligent, and downright sexy. I thought I knew how to play her game. I was ready and willing for the challenge. Little did I know she was full of secrets and surprises.

But so am I.

Charming a woman into my bed has never been my problem. It’s the relationship part that is. They want it. I don’t. But can you blame me? Broken marriages are how I make a living. Hell, no self-respecting man would let a woman own his thoughts, invade his dreams, and steal his heart. So how in the world has Vaughn done that to me?

I’ve fallen in love with her. There. I said it. But that acknowledgment comes with a heavy price.

Everything and everyone seem to be working against us, leaving us both to question whether what we have is worth the cost.

I’ll be damned if I go down without a fight.


Review

In the final book in the duet, Ryker has a lot of explaining to do with Vaughn and it's an uphill battle from start to finish. Vaughn is still trying to figure out what to do about Carter who is now determined more then ever to take her out. 

There are times when I got frustrated with Vaughn because she kept going back and forth on whether or not she is going to trust Ryker. Though he did some shady things to warrant not being forgiven, it was just more of the back and forth on her own decision. She said she did but then over the slightest thing go back to hating him. 

i did enjoy the suspense part of the story. There is a lot of build up between Carter and Vaughn. Then at the end we get not only one but two big surprises. It felt like a movie unfolding and once we got to the climax, you won't be able to put the story down.

She want's a fight_

Excerpt

“Ryker . . . please . . . just let me go.” But this time when she speaks there is something in her voice that catches my ear. The same thing that has me looking a little bit closer, regardless of how much my chest constricts in doing so, and I notice the tears welling in her eyes and the tremble of her bottom lip.

A chink in her damn armor. She doesn’t want to tell me we’re over any more than I want to believe her.

“What the fuck is going on here? You’re hiding something from me.”

“No. I’m not. This just can’t be.” She starts to skirt around me, and it takes everything I have not to reach out and keep her there.

“Don’t walk away from me when I’m talking to you!”

“And don’t you think for a second you can tell me what to do,” she counters, hair flying over her shoulder, jaw clenched.

“I’m not in the mood for your games.”

“My games?” she screeches and throws me off guard when I shouldn’t be. “My games? You’re the one who did this to me. All of it. And you tell me I’m playing games?”

“What the—?” I stop and try to figure out what she’s talking about. My hands are on her shoulders, and I’m all but shaking her to force her to look me in the eyes. “Did what to you, Vaughn? What the hell have I done to you besides fuck myself over by falling in love with you?” Words that should be said with kindness come out in a frustrated rage. Truths I don’t want to voice, and now I can’t take them back.

And she just stands there with her head shaking to reject my words, eyes wide with a hint of fear, and fuck if I don’t hate myself right now for everything I feel: rage, desperation, love, desire.

How can you swear you’re not cut out for a relationship and love in one breath, then with the next fight so goddamn hard to keep it?

What is this woman doing to me?

I scrub my hands over my face and take a deep breath to calm the fuck down. To force myself to cool my temper so I can keep her here instead of pushing her farther away.

“What is it, baby?” I all but plead with a voice as soft as I can make it. “Tell me why you’re walking away when you don’t want to.” She averts her eyes, confirming there’s something more. “I can’t help you unless you tell me what happened. I can’t understand why the other night meant nothing to you until you do.”

Come on. Talk to me.

“Carter paid me a visit after I left your place.” Her voice is soft, but her defiance is mounting.

That’s definitely not what I expected to come out of her mouth.

“What do you mean, Carter paid you a visit?”

“Just what I said.”

“Why? For what? That fucking asshole better not have touched you.”

“Does it matter if he did?” Her voice rises. “You invited him into my personal life. You gave him everything he needs to destroy me.”
