Book: Crossing The Line (The GEG Series #3)

(standalone read)
Author: Jacquelyn Ayres

Genre: erotic romance/humor



Synopsis

Psychotherapist, Madelyn St. Claire, has all the answers. At least, that’s what the plaques on her wall say. There isn’t a fear she’s met that she hasn’t helped a client blast through. So, why can’t she work through her own?
Oh, that’s right…

She’s been so busy helping everyone else through their challenges over the years, including her best friends—the GEGs—that she never even realized she had any of her own true fears. Then again, she didn’t have a reason to until he came along.Cellist, Declan Pierce, can hit all the right notes, as long as he’s hitting them on stage. When he’s off . . . well—he’s off. So, he keeps his head down and tries to stay focused on his career and his son, Hunter. They have shared in a trauma that would bring most closer. However, theirs has only weighted their bond down, slowly causing them to drift further and further apart. 

That is until a beacon of light shines through.
That beacon is about five-foot-nothing, all curves, heart, brains, and no BS.
But that is only part of this story.

It’s a long road to Happily Ever After. Maddie and Declan learn that it takes more than just the two of them to get there, and it’s not a smooth stroll. It’s not meant to be, though, is it?Life can give you whiplash. Buckle in and hold tight to those closest to you because, honestly…

It takes a village to make love epic.
Review

This book will take you on the emotional ride of your life. It is hilariously funny. The GEGs will keep you in stitches with some of the things that come out of their mouths. But, when you least expect it, the book will slay you. You will definitely want to keep tissues handy because you will need them more than once. This book is so much more than just a love story. It is a story about family, whether that family is by blood or not. The love story is just the icing on the cake.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that there are some really dark moments in this book that might be a trigger for some people. It deals with detrimental loss and dark mental illness. It all works together, however, to make an amazing story. If you can handle the dark moments (and they are just that…moments), this book is definitely worth the read!

**ARC rec’d in exchange for an honest review**

Meet the Author


I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.
Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.
I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn’t reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures.
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it’s my characters and not “the voices” . . . that would be creepy.

Desire After Dark
 Book: Desire After Dark
Series: Gansett Island Series #15
Author: Marie Force
Publication Date: May 23, 2016

BLURB

Tobias “Slim” Jackson has the perfect life as a pilot on Gansett Island in the summer and in Florida in the winter. He’s happiest when he’s in the air, or at least that was the case before last summer when he met Erin Barton, Gansett Island’s newest lighthouse keeper. Now he can’t seem to find his usual enthusiasm for flying, winter in the sunny South or anything that doesn’t include her.

Erin has been stuck on pause since she lost her twin brother. She’ll tell you herself that her life has been a hot mess since Toby died. After dropping out of law school, she’s flitted from one pointless job to another, existing rather than truly living. Then she comes to Gansett Island to take over as the new lighthouse keeper and meets Slim, who happens to share her beloved brother’s first name. That small coincidence is enough to convince Erin that she needs to spend more time with the dashing pilot—except for the fact that he’s spending the winter more than a thousand miles from her.

Now Slim’s come home to Gansett for the holidays and to hopefully pick up where he left off with Erin. He’s got twelve days before he’s due back in Florida to finish out the remainder of his winter obligations. A lot can happen in twelve days, but will it be enough to convince Erin that it’s time to start truly living again? Read Slim and Erin’s story and catch up with the rest of the Gansett Island cast in Desire After Dark!

REVIEW

It is always nice to have the opportunity to take a trip back to Gansett Island. This trip was no exception. Erin and Slim’s story is so good. Slim fights hard to help Erin past her fears in order for them to have a relationship. His support of her is unwavering. Erin deals with her OCD and her fears constantly but has not felt that she would be able to move past them. That is, until Slim. He makes her want more. He makes her want to be able to move on with her life. Slim and Erin’s relationship has developed quickly and is definitely HOT! The chemistry in this couple if off the charts!

We also get to visit with the other Gansett residents in this book. We get to catch up with several of the couples and get to attend the wedding of Evan and Grace. The characters in this series are amazing and each book gives us a little look into the  lives of most all of them. There are several laugh out loud moments with some of the Gansett residents.

This is a great book. I still remember reading the first book in this series. I loved it and have loved every book in the series since that time. It is amazing that we are now at book #15. This one is as amazing as all of the other fourteen! If you haven’t read the series then you need to start now. If you have read it then grab this one today!

Blurb

Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she’s known about Kayden Wilkens—the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway a month earlier. But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

 

Sexy couple in leather jacket hugging each other

 

Excerpt

“You are all kinds of tattooed hotness, Kayden Wilkens. Hawk.”

His lips curve. “Is that you talking or the wine?”

“It’s called liquid courage.”

“You’re adorably drunk.”

I stroke his cheek, which feels much better than mine. “But you’re here, and you are The Hawk and I know I’m safe.”

“You are safe with me, Ella.”

“I am, but you’re dangerous to everyone else.”

His expression sobers. “Is that what you think of me?”

“Don’t go getting serious on a drunk person. I didn’t mean that negatively—you’re everyone’s protector.” I grab his T-shirt. “I meant that the bad guys are in trouble when they piss you off. And I meant it like you’re a badass, thus the ‘you’re sexy’ comment. Wait. Did I say that or think that? I’m saying it now. You’re sexy.”

He flattens his hand at the small of my back. “Badass?”

“Badass.”

“Do you know how badly I want to be inside you right now? Right here?” His hands go to my sides, traveling to my breasts, his thumbs stroking my nipples to hard peaks.

I grab his hands as my cheeks flush. “Too bad I wore jeans. You’ll have to behave.”

“Will I?” he asks, flicking my nipple.

I grab his wrists, firming my voice. “Stop, because yes, you do. I am not getting undressed in public.”

He reaches down and fingers the easily undone laces that line the front of my jeans. “I’ll settle for you having an orgasm until we get home.”

I reach for his hand. “I can’t have an orgasm in public, either,” I say, but my body betrays me, my sex clenched and wet.

“That sounds like a challenge—and this is barely public.” He pulls several of my laces loose. “I told Niccolo I couldn’t command you to orgasm. I want to try.”

“You can,” I assure him. “You can pretty much just look at me and I’m wet.”

“Are you telling me you’re wet now?”

“Very—so take me home and do something about it.”

His hand goes to my jaw and he drags my gaze to his.

“I never thought I’d use the word home again—let alone have a woman I want to use it with. I love you, Ella.”

“I love you too—” He slips his fingers beneath the laces and suddenly they’re intimately pressed to my sex. “That was unfair!”

“You’re not wearing panties,” he observes, slipping a finger inside me.

“Kayden—”

“And you are very, very wet.” His head lowers, lips at my ear. “I would kill to feel you around me right now.”

I pant, and my sex clenches around his fingers. “You’re about to embarrass me.”

“No one can see us.”

“That’s not what I mean. I mean—” He thumbs my clit and presses another finger inside me. “I’m going to come really fast.” He kisses me, a deep slide of his tongue, and oh . . . oh . . .

EXCERPT:
 
He leans down and moves his mouth over mine, devouring its
softness. Slowly, I lift my arms around his neck, running my hands through his
thick hair. I tug on his hair, not wanting this kiss to end.
When he pulls back, he leaves my
mouth burning with fire. 
With a wicked grin on his face, he points to the shower. “I have to get out of
here before I have my way with you. Your brother is out there waiting. Go get a
shower, cool off, do what you have to do to calm yourself down. But if I hear
moaning, I am gonna be all over you whether your brother is here or not.”
I chuckle knowing what he is
insinuating. Before he can move, I bite his lower lip, sucking it into my
mouth. I release his bottom lip and place a soft kiss on it. “Mr. Banks, I will
have you know, if I plan on moaning, it would be because you made me, it won’t
be self-induced.”
I push myself off the counter,
walking over to turn on the shower. When I look over my shoulder Jamie is
standing there, his jaw clenched, his eyes slightly narrowed.
I am going to give him a show and
drive him crazy. He thought he was cute when we were younger when he jumped
naked into the pool at my birthday party, I am going to have a little fun with
him today.
I pull the hem of tank top up and over my head, leaving me
standing there topless. My back is facing Jamie, so he can’t see my breasts. I
slowly peel my sleep shorts off of my body, one leg at a time and toss them in
his direction. When I turn around his muscle flicks angrily in his jaw. I fix
my eyes on his. “Do you like what you see, Mr. Banks?” Knowing that he is going
to lose his shit, I quickly get in the shower and shut the curtain behind me.
Peeking around the shower curtain, I
squeal at the intrusion into my personal space as Jamie smirks at me saying so
quietly that I’m not entirely sure I heard him, “You think you’re funny, don’t
you? Two can play at this game. You better pray the next time I see you naked,
your brother isn’t in the next room. Cause if he is, he will hear what you
sound like when I’m making you come with my mouth.” He reaches out and pauses
mid-air as he’s about to stroke my breast. Instinctively, I lean toward his
touch wanting his hand there, wanting him in here, knowing my brother is
literally steps away from me grabbing him and pulling him into the shower with
me. Inhaling a breath, never breaking eye contact with him, I moan, quiet
enough that no one hears but he heard. Smirking at me with lust-filled eyes, he
pulls his hand back, retreating the hand that was so close to the water beading
on my nipple that my skin feels his absence and he never even touched me.
And he stalks out of the bathroom.
Just like that.
Holy. Shit. I need to make this a
cold shower after what he just said to me, after how he almost touched me. A
smile spreads across my face as I hear the bathroom door shut. One for Cami,
One for Jamie.
Why did I invite my brother with us
again?

Genre: Paranormal Romance




Synopsis:


Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.
Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.
Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.

Fanmade Trailer
Excerpt


I felt feverish, and I couldn’t move. I tried to open my eyes, but something heavy weighed on my eyelids.
Although I couldn’t see or move, I heard voices around me. The first one was female, and she had an English accent like Sheriff Gray. “She’s still got a fever.”
Then, I heard a male voice. “What if she doesn’t wake up?” He had the same accent, but he wasn’t the sheriff.
At that moment, I realized they were talking about me. “Don’t worry…she will.”
It’s my fault. Dad’s going to bloody kill me.”
It’s not your fault. Stop saying that. She’ll be okay, and Dad will understand.”
I shouldn’t have brought her here.
You did the right thing by bringing her here. I can take care of her.
There was a momentary pause. “What if she finds out?”
That’s for Dad to decide.”
The voices faded in and out. Sleep bore down on me, but the last words I heard from the man stuck in my head. “I’ll watch over her.”
A severely dry mouth and splitting headache interrupted my peaceful sleep. I couldn’t hear the two voices, but I heard breathing in my left ear like someone was sleeping next to me. I tried to open my eyes so that I could ask them for water and medicine for my headache. The weight on my eyes was gone, so I tried to open them, but they felt sticky this time. I struggled to peel them open, blinking rapidly to loosen my eyelashes.
When I finally opened my eyes, they felt swollen. The pain in my head spread throughout my entire body. Dim light surrounded me in this strange room. I lay on a bed and looked up at the ceiling. I tried to speak, but my throat was dry. Only a quiet wheeze escaped. A low groan followed as my headache pounded against my temples. I still felt hot and sweaty. Layers of blankets covered me, and I wanted to yank them off. When I touched my abdomen, I wore nothing but my bra and panties.
My eyes darted around the unfamiliar room. On the wall, I noticed a shadow of something next to me. What the hell is that? I turned my head and saw a candle in the window, but what cast the shadow scared me to death. A large, white wolf lay on the floor beside me. There was no mistaking it for a dog. The bed was low to the floor, and its head was close to mine. I opened my mouth wide, prepared to scream, but wheezes and weak gasps escaped, instead. I thrashed my head against the pillow, as if the motions would turn up the volume in my voice. Finally, a shriek pushed through my sandpaper throat. It was a high-pitched squeal at first, but then, it burst forth and filled the room. I sat up quickly. Aching pain tore through my body, and I heard my bones crack.
The wolf awoke with a start. It jerked its head up, and glowing, yellow eyes blinked until they settled on me. I shrank away from it, nearly falling off the bed, screaming until I went hoarse and gasped for breath. The wolf stood on all fours, its size definitely that of a Great Dane. Our gazes locked for a brief moment before the animal ran out the room. I sat against the headboard, clutching the blankets against my chest. I was alone and terrified. Within seconds, tears trickled down my cheeks.

Farewell Apathy

The world is a scary place, even when you know who you are, where you come from and most importantly, who your enemies are.

So imagine how I felt when I woke up inside of Mayford Mental Institution, strapped to a bed in a dark, empty room with no recollection of how I got there. Try to picture having no family or friends to help you try to remember and adjust to a totally new life.

If only my problems stopped there. If only I didn’t have someone trying to torment me at every turn. If only my life didn’t become more and more complicated the more I started to remember.

It started out okay enough – my friend-turned-psychiatrist Mark found me a job and a place to live. My neighbor Keegan took me in under her wing and helped me adjust. Wyatt, a dark, brooding and dangerously sexy new tenant moved in a week after me, taking on the task of reminding me what blinding lust feels like.

What goes up, must come down, and as soon as life starts to feel like something I can handle, the gravity of my messed up life yanks me right back down on my ass. Kind of crazy how quickly you can go from being completely apathetic about your unknown future, to fearing that your future might not even exist at all….

What’s up world – I’m Jenn Hype.

Author, mother, wife, singer/songwriter, aspiring comedian – I wear many hats. Some of them fit, some of them look ridiculous, and all of them are fun. Life’s too short to take anything too seriously, so I don’t.

Sarcasm is my go-to, especially when it’s most inappropriate. Need someone to make an uncomfortable situation even more awkward? I’m the girl for the job.

I’m ridiculously A.D.D. and I own it. I have a serious addiction to ecards and the majority of my Pinterest account is dedicated to them. The key to my heart is glitter and caffeine – my needs are basic.

I’m a bookaholic and I crush hard on my book boyfriends and their authors. Some might call me obsessive, but I disagree. That word really doesn’t do justice to how crazy I get when it comes to something I’m passionate about. I’m not afraid to go fangirl on you, so don’t test me.

Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask. I’m an open book, and I love to hear from readers.
