Sinner by Jackie Wang

 
 
Title: Sinner
Series: A Northbridge Nights Novel
Author: Jackie Wang
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Mystery
Release Date: July 22, 2017
 
 
 
 
First, he broke my heart. Then, he ripped it out of my chest.
 
Fifteen years ago, Beckett Longstead broke up with me, then disappeared.
 
One stormy night, he shows up at my doorstep bloodied and bruised, begging me for help.
 
I should’ve shut the door in his face. Should’ve left him to bleed.
 
But instead, I take him in and fix him, just like when we were teenagers.
 
Beckett has secrets, though, and everything about him screams guilt.
 
He’s hiding something terrible, but he won’t tell me what.
 
He claims he can’t remember. That he has amnesia.
 
He’s sick, plagued by nightmares, and his memory loss troubles me.
 
But he’s got no one else. 
 
So against my better judgment, I welcome him into my home, and back into my vulnerable heart.
 
Little did I know, his sins would destroy us. 
 
Little did I know, his secrets would ruin everything.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
When I think about his broken face, I can hardly breathe.
 
I’m worried that if I exhale, he will be gone forever. 
 
An overexposed photograph in my disjointed mental album.
 
Why can’t I rearrange that night’s events, put them in order?
 
I can remember the texture of his rough hands, the way they squeezed my shoulder that day. 
 
Hard enough to hurt.
 
But I can’t see his eyes anymore. They’ve been replaced by cruel black holes.
 
“Beckett, let me go.”
 
He had been miserable and trapped, but at least he’d been safe.
 
I thought I was offering him freedom, but I was wrong. 
 
So fucking wrong.
 
When I think about the years I spent loving him, nurturing him, living with him, I’d trade everything I had for an extra hour.
 
An hour where we’d read silently, side by side, until his tired head lolled and rested on my shoulder.
 
Just like old times.
 
Then I’d watch his fragile chest shudder as he struggled to breathe, and think about how grateful I was to have met him.
 
How grateful I was that he saved me and breathed life into an orphan who should’ve floundered, but thrived instead.
 
How grateful I was that for a few precious years, when it was just him and me, I was sublimely happy.
 
When I think about all the blood and tears, all the hissing and all that warped metal, I know I’ll burn in hell with all the other sinners.
 
And I’d welcome its gaping maw with open arms and thank God for punishing me.
 
But instead of casting me through the gates of Hell, God played a cruel trick on me.
 
He made me forget everything. He made me forget all my sins.
 
Then, He reunited me with my first love, and gave me a glimpse of hope, a taste of renewed happiness.
 
Only to take it all away a few weeks later, and ruin me all over again.

Book Review For: ‘Shameless’ By Lisa Renee Jones

Review:

Shameless - Lisa Renee Jones

‘Shameless’ By Lisa Renee Jones is Book Two in the “White Lies Duet” series. This book continues the story of Nick “Tiger” Rogers and Faith Winter. The first book “Provocative” began their story so I think to fully enjoy this book you should read that one first. But, Ms Jones writing allows for you to catch up to their story if you choose not to read the first book.
Nick had never met Faith before until he choose to attend the Reid Winter Winery open house, with the mind set to get all the information on her he could. Nick was under the mindset that Faith ha been involved with some tragic events that had happened. But when meeting her he slowly started to find that wasn’t the case. Now this book opens us up to what the fallout is when lies and truth come out.
Ms. Jones is one of my go to authors when I need a great hot, alpha romance story. I love her writing and always feel connected to her characters!
“My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.”

Life has a funny way of throwing you off balance.
 
Take me for example. I spent years in a bad marriage with a self-serving ass, only to have the love of my life show up when I least expected him. Greg helped me on my journey of self discovery and taught me that, no, I’m not perfect. But I’m perfectly me.  It was an amazing journey.
 
We laughed hard. We loved even harder.
 
And then he was suddenly and cruelly ripped away from me by the unclenching jaws of fate.
 
Ok, so it wasn’t that dramatic. And I really need to stop watching the Investigation Channel.
 
But now Greg is back and as it turns out, re-incorporating someone into your life isn’t that easy. Between jobs, kids, and barely-there friendships, life and love can be messy. Making it all work is a balancing act. 

But we’re determined to get it in check.

Getting A Grip by M.E. Carter.

 
 
 
 
 
Title: Getting A Grip
A #MyNewLife Novel
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 18, 2017
 
Blurb

This isn’t my life. Okay, it is my life, but not the way I envisioned it would be.
 
I wasn’t supposed to be a divorced mother of three when I turned the big 4-0.  Sure, I expected the fine lines, gray hairs and left over baby belly.  What I didn’t expect was expanding our family get-togethers by one… my ex-husband’s new child bride.  Ok, ok, she’s not young.  Maybe.
 
Did I mention this is not the life I planned?
 
It could always be worse, I know. I’m lucky to have a mother who loves to babysit, a best friend who loves sarcasm, and a new friend by the name of Greg, who is apparently a child whisperer and tells me my eyes are pretty.
 
Sigh… Greg.
 
The perfect, Adonis-like God of a man who keeps flirting with me. At least I think he’s flirting with me. It’s been so long, I don’t really know.
 
Between birthday parties, a few ill-advised bouts with make-up, and a whole slew of gymnastics classes, it’s finally time to take back some control.
 
So, while my girls learn all about how to grip the bar, I’m going to learn how to get a grip on my life.  And maybe my heart.
