Book 2 of the Briarcrest Academy Series

A new adult romance from bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills

Release Date May 13, 2014

Synopsis:

Born on the poor side of town…

Ballerina Dovey Beckham is a scholarship student at Briarcrest Academy, determined to prove she’s more than just a girl with the wrong pedigree. She does whatever it takes to succeed in her endgame, even if it means surrendering her body…but never her heart.

Until the day she meets him, and he rips apart all her well-laid plans. Suddenly, the girl everyone thought unbreakable might just shatter.

Born into wealth and privilege…

Cuba “Hollywood” Hudson is rich, spoiled, and a star football player. With his fast cars and superficial girlfriends, he lives the high-life, hiding his secrets from the world.

Until the day he meets her, and she offers him something he’s never tasted…love.

But once in a lifetime kind of love doesn’t come easy. When trust crumbles and doubts creep in, both will have to decide to either love or let go…forever.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy, where sometimes, only the wicked survive.

Excerpt:

Cuba’s POV

Not exactly a meet-cute…

The room closed in, making me sweat. I hadn’t talked to her in over a year, and now here we were, face-to-face. Two ex-lovers who hated each other.

I had to get away from her.

Dovey tilted her head as I stood, giving me a scathing glare. “Leaving so soon? Yeah, go ahead, cut and run. Coward.”

I ignored her and tried to get Weinstein’s attention, to let her know she could flunk me for all I cared.

“Before you go, tell me one thing, and I’ll make sure we aren’t partners in this class. You’ll be free of me,” she said.

“What?” I asked, my voice going all raspy, blocking all the words I wanted to say. They weren’t things she ever needed to hear.

“Why so cruel to me? You aren’t to the other girls you date and dump. Why single me out?”

I seethed. “And it didn’t take you long to find someone else, now did it? How is Spider? Does he get you hot like I did?”

She smirked. “He’s fine. He thinks I hung the moon. He thinks you’re an ass. I agree.”

I tightened my fists and pressed them against my thighs, swearing to myself I wasn’t responding to her bait. I swore. She was a dangerous game I didn’t need to play.

Suddenly, her face fell. Was she recalling the last time we were together? Was she remembering how I used to…

“I trusted you,” she whispered, all her anger seeming to be gone. The unsteadiness of her voice undid me, sent me right over the edge of that precarious cliff I’d been hanging on to by the skin of my teeth.

Yeah, she hadn’t been the only one who’d trusted me. I’d ruined them all. Every last one. Dark thoughts assaulted me, of the blood I had on my hands.

Snap! My pencil broke and small pieces flew across my desk and into the empty space between us.

I wanted to pummel my desk until my fists bled. I wanted to punch a hole through the wall, the floor, my face.

Everything was my fault. Just mine.

She’d been collateral damage, the kind that breaks everyone involved. And I was sorry for it, but sometimes you do what hurts because it’s for the best.

But she was my kryptonite, leaving me no option but to hurt her. Again.

I didn’t think about my cruel words, I just said them. “You were a curiosity, Dovey. You weren’t the usual BA girl, and I wanted a taste. That’s all. I moved on when it got boring. Get over it.”

kis kis kis kis

Synopsis

Becca Campbell is a mother, friend, and widow to a war hero (may he rot in hell). She just wants to raise her daughter right and keep her bed-and-breakfast afloat in this economy. Her traumatic past leaves her with no desire for a relationship—until Grayson James walks through her door. He’s not the type of man you can easily say “no” to. Becca can’t quite understand the pull she feels toward him. But then his controlling nature starts to push her away—and into Ray McNeil’s comforting arms. Which is right where Ray has always wanted her.

Who will Becca choose?

Will she finally give in to her feelings for Ray, or continue the tumultuous relationship with Grayson? Only one thing is certain—either choice will mean saying goodbye to caution.

Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, dubious consent, strong language and violence.

10% of the proceeds from this book will be donated to YWCAUSA.org to help abused women and children.

Review

It was refreshing and a pleasant surprise to read a story about characters who were adults and therefore aware of what they wanted (in a sense, as if the characters always knew exactly what they wanted there probably wouldn’t be much of a story to be told) and who weren’t so naive in their personalities.

Becca was a wonderful character, she was quirky, strong, funny and a lovely and caring mother. She definitely annoyed me at times with the decisions she made and her thought process but the fact I was invested enough to get annoyed at a character is always proof to me that the character has got to me and is someone I am enjoying reading about.

Grayson was a character I had trouble with because there were some aspects I liked about him and others I didn’t. There’s no argument that he was sexy and an alpha male but he was sometimes too possessive and jealous and calling a women he is meant to love a whore takes jealous boyfriend a little too far for me. I was able to move past this though as this was obviously a story about a turbulent relationship so heated arguments are definitely expected.

The plot itself was fast-paced, there was a lot of drama. The constant back and forth arguing between Becca and Grayson did get a little irritating but there was plenty happening within the story that I never became bored and I was 100% hooked, wondering what was going to happen next, if Grayson and Becca were ever going to sort things out and settle and what else was going to come along to mix up the plot.

A fast-paced story, packed full of drama, romance, and passion, with well developed characters means overall I give this book a solid 4 smooches!

Deviant by Callie Hart Review

20564453

Synopsis:

Sloane

I’m not proud of the things I’ve done.
The things I’ve had to do.
The things I’ve given away.
but I’d give it all over again to find her.

Even if i die trying,
I have to find Alexis.

Zeth

She wants me to help her,
But I won’t.
She wants me to save her sister,
But I can’t.
She wants me to be her hero,
But I’m not a good man.

I am her damnation.

Review

I am a very visual person. The covers of books and the teasers are what really grab my eye. If they are done well, I tend to purchase the book without really knowing much about it. Confession: that was the case with Deviant by Callie Hart.

The other night, in the middle of the morning as I was putting my daughter BACK to bed, I happened upon a super hot teaser for this book. It looked right up my alley. I thought to myself “Huh, well why haven’t I seen this before? It comes out in a few days…” So I immediately went to Callie’s Facebook page. I could instantly tell that she was a newbie to this scene! Only a few hundred likes and not the usual bombardment of promotional everything that I’m used to seeing. I got a really good vibe from what I saw and just knew that this was going to be a good one. Damn, I love it when I’m right!

zeth

Deviant is the story of Zeth and Sloane. Zeth is a bit of a wildcard. An asshat who likes to play dirty, both in life and in the dark. Sloane is an innocent who has been thrust into, probably her second worst nightmare, her sister has been taken. Through a complex series of events, these two meet and Sloane has to decide if she wants to take a walk on the wild side, literally, to hopefully find her sister.

sloane

This is a novella, which I actually loved! It was nice to sit down during an extended lunch and read a story that had you gripped from the first page! And let me tell you, the ending will knock your socks off! It is DAMN hot!!!

Sloane and Zeth fight against each other which only makes it extremely hot when they finally succumb to their feelings. I loved how the past was interspersed with the present. I loved how easy it was to read, and how enjoyable. I loved how it may appear as though it is something that you have read before, and yet it is still fresh and HOT.

scent

The senses were used beautifully in this story you could almost smell and hear exactly what Sloane was. To me, that is an added element to reading this genre that sets the story above others. If you can see, hear, smell and taste what is described, hmmm…poetry on paper.

I cannot wait for more of Zeth and Sloane! This is a MUST read new series. The elements of danger, lust and obedience have me reeling for more!

Synopsis

Welcome to Lindsey Point, Connecticut: suspicious of outsiders, loyal to tradition, and absolutely devoted to its local legends.

Enter Sophie Smithwaite, travel show host, in town to film an episode about Lindsey Point’s haunted lighthouse. But digging into the story of a tragic murder-suicide and love gone wrong reveals startling connections to Sophie’s own past. When a gorgeous local handyman fills in behind the camera, Sophie’s life gets complicated by more than just her family history.

Part-time paramedic, handyman, seasonal Santa… Lucas Oakes does it all–except get attached. He’s still reeling from the death of his best friend ten years ago and the more recent infidelity of his ex-fiancee. Yet despite Sophie’s big-city nosiness and her insistence on chasing long-dead ghosts, he’s drawn to her.

But mixing with an outsider means questioning people and traditions Lucas has always defended. When a series of attacks seem to be connected to Sophie’s investigation, both Sophie and Lucas must decide if they are willing to risk everything to uncover the town’s secrets…and their own.

CONTENT WARNING: Contains one barb-slinging travel show host, one hunky handyman who knows exactly how to use his tools, and a small town brimming with secrets .

Review

Beacon of love is a small town romance with a lot of mystery!

Sophie Smithwaite is a Travel show host who spends her time in small town after small town digging into their history. Never in a million years would she expect to find herself so intertwined in the story behind the mystery at Lindsay Point! Upon her arrival Sophie bumps into Lucas, a 6’7 town handyman/part time paramedic/all around good guy! But oh boy this small town hunk has some issues to work through!! Never the less, these two have some major chemistry and the sexual tension is off the charts!  As Sophie starts to discover more about the town of Lindsay Point it is very clear that there is more going on here than meets the eye. With ghost’s and murder, plane crashes and infidelity you are really kept guessing throughout this book. Beacon of Love was a little less steamy then I am used too and I did find myself disappointed after all the build-up between Sophie and Lucas only to have their sex scene be non-descriptive and fade to black. This book’s ending was left a little open ended but I do know it is a series so I look forward to reading more about this couple in upcoming books! Overall this was a great romantic mystery and I will definitely pick up the next book in the Hometown Hero’s series.

Synopsis

I am a Master.

You must know this fact to understand my story.

I capture women.

I break them down.

And I rebuild them.

If they are lucky, they are sold into the professional hands of another Master. If they are less fortunate, they are buried beneath the ground, never to be thought of again.

I lust for the control, I demand absolute submission and my body yearns to warp the minds of those I train.

Power is the only thing I’ll ever need and I am addicted to the feeling of ultimate control.

I am wealthy, good-looking, educated and charming.

And I am – in no way – a good man.

I do not want love.
I do not want kindness.

She thought she could change me by giving me the two things I knew I never wanted.

She was wrong.

Review

WTF, Lily White?!  Seriously, WTF?!  I am sitting here trying to think of words to describe how much I hated to love this book.  The whole thing was gut twisting and completely wackadoodle and I couldn’t put it down.  Even when I wanted to, I just couldn’t stop!  I am slightly disturbed that I found some of this book erotic. What does that say about me?  Oh god, someone help me.  I think this book traumatized me!

Lets start with crazy ass sadistic Aiden, shall we?  His character is awful.  He is a horrible, awful, demented, man with no redeeming qualities.  This is where the book really differed from other dark books, for me.  Usually, the dark men in these types of books are tortured, or were abused themselves, or something that explained why they were such lunatics.  But nope, not with Aiden.  He is just a crazy bastard and he likes it that way.  He has no love in his heart for anyone or anything except money.  He is really quite appalling and I hated him from the beginning of this book to the very end.  5 % into this book and he had already abducted and was getting ready to rape Rebecca.  He demeans her in every possible way I can think of.  This is not the fun type of rough sex.  This is the scary as shit type of sex and Aiden is so good at it. He is completely frightening.

images (3)

And Rebecca!  Rebecca, Rebecca, Rebecca!  You have Stockholm’s Syndrome, baby girl.  Hell, maybe she didn’t.  Maybe she is just as crazy and fucked up as Aiden.  Who knows?  This book is a complete mind fuck.

Her Master’s Courtesan is a fast paced erotic thriller.  It is extremely, extremely dark.  I cannot emphasize this enough.  Rape, abuse and physical violence are prevalent throughout the entirety of this book.  If you are looking for some romance and a happily ever after, fucking move on!  It was still an absolutely fabulous read that I could not put down.  It is superbly written and off the charts crazy.  Congrats, Lily White, you get the bat shit crazy award.  5 smooches.

Synopsis

When Katherine “Kate” leaves for her freshmen year at college, a grounded and stable piece of her is missing. She pushes away the ghosts of her past, determined to start her college life single, carefree and distracted.
Throughout high school Kate was reserved and shy, with little experience. Now, on her own, with little holding her back, Kate is ready to branch out. She bonds with a tight knit group of friends and even starts casually dating. What starts out as innocent flirting on the tennis courts slowly turns into a friendship and eventually something more complex. Reed comes into her life giving her the distraction she craves more than anything; but is she ready to give her heart away so easily?
Things get complicated when Kate’s ex-boyfriend and first love continues to pursue her. Kyle deeply regrets breaking her heart when he left for college the year before and is now on a mission to reclaim her. Kyle’s persistence and relentlessness is nothing short of obsessive. He will stop at nothing to win her back and prove his love.
Kate finds herself torn between her past and the unknown of the future. Her determination to stay distracted may just be her downfall or the beginning of something new and wonderful.
***For Mature Readers 18+***

Review

In the Perfect Distraction we are introduced to Kate, fresh out of high school and ready to start college a free woman.  Her boyfriend of two years Kyle, broke up with her when he left for college the year before, so she decides to do the same-go to college single.  Once at school, she is determined to be the girl she wants to be.  Not Kyle’s ex, not the Kate with some family problems, just happy-go-lucky-Kate, is that too much to ask?  For her, it seems to be.
 
Kate’s Freshman year starts out with a bang, she likes her roommate Quinn well enough and meets some others as she settles in.  Maggie, Kelly, Jenna and a few boys Derek, Marco and of course Reed form a bit of a party group and start to hang out together.  Kate settles into college life and here is where I had a bit of a problem with the story.  Kate seemed very immature to me as compared to her girlfriends.  For example, she was so worried about kissing guys, which came off as more of an elementary level action as compared to college level. 
 
So Kate tests the waters with a few guys, but all roads lead back to Reed.  He is good looking, a tennis player and has the prettiest blue eyes ever (which is mentioned constantly, as well as Kate’s lip biting). Reed and Kate have the tennis thing in common, so they strike up a friendship that way, playing every Saturday.  Kate is aware of Reed’s player status around campus, so she doesn’t make any moves other than friendship wtih him.  School is out for the summer, Kate and Reed go their separate ways and we meet up with them her Sophomore year. 
 
During the summer Kate goes back home and ends up giving into her nagging ex Kyle.  This guys comes off as a total d-bag and stays that way the entire book.  He treats Kate like property and she falls right under his spell when they spend time together again.  After a few incidences with Kyle, Kate is done, however she doesn’t really tell him, she just ignores him.  Kyle is at a different school, so it is easy for Kate to go on with her life like he doesn’t exist.  Some of the prospects from the year before like Marco, have graduated, so Kate finds herself getting closer to Reed.
 
Reed isn’t who Kate thinks he is, so she starts to let him get closer than the year before, talking to him about Kyle and a bit about her family life.  He feels the same way about her, but knows that Kyle isn’t too far in the past and he still effects Kate.  Reed wants to make sure Kate feels the same and I think his 50 questions game was a great way to do it.  So Kate wants Reed, Reed wants Kate, Kyle still wants Kate and that is a recipe for trouble.
 
Things go all kinds of bad with Kate and Kyle, making Reed look like even more of a stand up guy.  He is good to Kate, but she just doesn’t think she is enough for him.  Kate wants to get her life straightened out with Kyle and her family once and for all before she can fully give herself to Reed.  
 
The story is solid and a little YA for my liking. I wasn’t connecting with Kate at all. She seemed to be too wishy-washy when it came to Kyle and the decisions she had to make.  She made them a bigger deal than they needed to be. The book is a bit of a cliffhanger and I do want to see how this story is going to play out-especially with Reed.

Chasing the Wild Sparks

by Ren Alexander

unnamed (25)

Synopsis

What would you do if the love of your life doesn’t want the same life you do?
Hadley Beckett has failed in not only her career, but as a daughter, friend, and girlfriend.

Hadley’s longtime boyfriend, Finn Wilder, who is Richmond, Virginia’s local daredevil and favorite sportscaster, isn’t afraid of anything…except for LASIK surgery, dancing, marriage, and kids—the last two being what Hadley desperately wants with him. Finn leads a very public life; however, he leaves Hadley in the dark about most of it. Despite his public persona, Finn is viciously protective of his private life. Excluding their families, his best friend and Hadley’s friends, nobody knows he has been dating her for three years. Finn loves Hadley and he knows she wants to get married. Nevertheless, he has his own reasons for not wanting to marry her.

Fearing at 33 that she will soon be too old to have kids, Hadley wants Finn to change his mind and marry her, yet her insecurities about his seemingly charismatic personality and his constant rebuffs have her questioning her aspirations. With conflicting advice from her friends, Hadley concludes she should take things into her own hands.
Would he change his mind then?

Finn pressures Hadley into moving in with him, but being traditional, she wants to be married first and she wants to stick to her beliefs, just as he clings to his own. Finn has tolerated Hadley’s stubbornness long enough and he’s reaching his breaking point.

Finn Wilder has his own story to tell.

Daring the Wild Sparks

by Ren Alexander

Synopsis

In the follow up to “Chasing the Wild Sparks,” Hadley Beckett’s quest for wedded bliss perseveres…

What would you do if the love of your life were closer to making your dreams come true?

Riding high in her relationship with her sportscaster/local daredevil boyfriend, Finn Wilder, Hadley Beckett makes plans concerning her future with Finn. Big plans.

Spending time with Finn at his parents’ house for Easter, Hadley can’t wait to share some of her ideas with him, hoping he will go along. She knows she has an uphill climb ahead of her, but she’s optimistic that after what they recently went through, Finn will be receptive to what she has to say.

Infamously anti-marriage, Finn promised Hadley he’d consider taking her to the altar if she gives him more time. Diving headfirst and with encouragement from her best friend Morgan, Hadley devises a backup plan if Finn can’t make a decision soon. However, her other close friend, Rod, disagrees with Morgan’s advice, partly to just oppose her in spite, but also having actual valid points of his own. Feeling conflicted, Hadley takes both of their suggestions and blends them together, formulating her own way to handle Finn.

On the other hand, unbeknownst to Hadley, Finn has plans of his own as well.

Hadley is determined to succeed, yet is she unwittingly destined to fail?

Excerpt

“It’s not that I was trying to hide it from you. I just… it’s a part of me that I’ve worked hard to bury for a long time.” Right about now, I’m really wishing I had listened to Dylan and pulled down the Johnnie Walker. I’m irritated that I’ve driven this wedge between us. Dylan has been there for me since college. He pushed aside his aspirations to help me start the promotions company when he could have easily been hired on with any fancy corporation and raced his way up the ladder.

Dylan’s feet drop to the floor as he leans over the desk. “But why? If you’ve been burying it, that means this wasn’t a surprise to you. Why wouldn’t you tell me what was going on in that thick skull of yours? Some of the shit we’ve been through together, I can’t think of a single fucking thing I would keep a secret from you.”

“It’s not that I don’t trust you, D,” I groan, tilting my head back against my chair.  “I just… if I told you, I’d have to tell Tommy. And if he knew, everyone would know and I’m not ready for that. Maybe someday I’ll have someone in my life and I’ll have to tell them, but until then, I don’t see a reason for my family to know.”

“Seriously? Do you really think Tommy would run to your mom? And even if he did, I think you’re imagining a worse reaction than they’ll have. You have the type of family most people would kill to have.” He reaches across the desk, slapping me across the back of my head. The cockeyed grin on his face lets me know that while he might be upset with me for keeping this secret, he’s not angry and this won’t be the death of our friendship.

“You’ve met my family. What do you think they’re going to say when they learn that I like dick?” For as accepting as the Reed family can be about a lot of things, that acceptance doesn’t extend to one of their own having bisexual tendencies. They’d run with the fact that I am attracted to women and ask why I can’t be happy finding a good woman to settle down with. Until Mary, there wasn’t a woman I would have considered such a move for. With Mary, I feel as if we’d be incomplete without Jeff.

“Fair enough. But I’m not them and I highly doubt Tommy would say anything. After all, he knows them just as well as you do and I don’t see him throwing you under a bus.” I get what he’s saying, but it’s too late to change it.

“You could have told me.” If I’m not mistaken, Dylan sounds more hurt than angry. That shouldn’t surprise me, but it does. It wasn’t until recently that the man showed any sort of emotion. “You should have told me, man. You and me, we’re closer than I am with my own brother. I just…”
