Cover Jacket


 Synopsis I don't believe in fairy tales. I don't believe in glass slippers. I don't believe in Prince-Freaking-Charming.

Cinderella can kiss my ass.

I kiss frogs, sometimes even toads. I've given up on meeting Mr. Right, instead it seems all I meet is Mr. Wrong, Mr. Very-Wrong and even, Mr. Lets-Not-Even-Go-There.

Fairy tales are for morons.

Well, that's what I thought until Gabriel Black barged through my life, turning everything upside down. He's hot, sexy and little rough around the edges. But, he's hiding something, something deep. I can feel it, taste it and smell it.

Now I'm left wondering if he's my Prince Charming or my fairy tale villain. Will I ride away safely into the night, dreaming of happily ever afters? Or, will I stumble and fall in ridiculously high heels only meant for women with a death wish?

Once Upon A Time... I met Gabriel Black.

Synopsis
Lyric Scott has always had a good life. Outgoing, spunky, and musically talented, she’s constantly surrounded by family and friends, yet she still feels that there’s something missing.
Then she meets her new next-door neighbor Ayden Gregory. Mysterious, sweet, and sad, Ayden is the exact opposite of Lyric and exactly what she needs to fill the void in her life. Ayden Gregory has been through more than most people and believes his life is always going to be rocky, so when he’s suddenly adopted, he’s thrown for a turn. But even with a new, loving family, he still finds himself haunted by the memories of his old life. The only true breath of fresh air is when he’s with his best friend, Lyric Scott. As Lyric and Ayden grow closer, the lines of their friendship start to blur. But when Ayden's past unexpectedly pushes its way into his new life, their friendship and newfound attraction will be tested. add-to-goodreads-button
Excerpt
When he grows silent again, I crack an eyelid open. He’s dazing off over my shoulder with undiluted pain in his eyes. The realness of him causes my heart to stutter, and my fingers yearn to jot down unwritten words.
God, what has he been through to create such a look?
When his focus lands back on me, his eyes burn fiercely, as if he’s terrified out of his damn mind “Shut your eyes,” he whispers, almost horrified.
I do as he says without question, trusting him completely, even though his intensity is enough to make the calmest person in the world feel disconcerted.
He sticks the earbud in my ear and the gloomy, unhurried beat of Radiohead’s “How To Disappear Completely” soaks through my wounded soul.
“You picked the perfect song,” I mutter as the music engulfs me. “This is exactly what I—”
His lips brush mine, stealing the words right from my mouth. My breath catches in my throat and my first instinct is to pull away. But I don’t want to pull away. I want to stay. Let him erase that last few hours from my mind.
I keep my eyes shut, too afraid to open them as his lips timidly start to move against mine. Just a whisper of a graze. A heart-stopping brush. A soul-drowning taste. He does it again and again, taking his time, erasing all the ickiness from tonight. As I absorb each soft graze, his tongue slowly follows, slipping into my mouth. I gasp, but still don’t open my eyes. I barely move. Can hardly think. And when he pulls back, gently biting at my bottom lip, I stop breathing all together.
That burn songs promise.
Blazes in me.
Hot and scorching.
So sweltering and mind-numbing.
I feel it in my veins.
Liquid fire.
Passion.
Driving me insane.
And the bar set so high.
Ayden has soared over.
Past the heavens.
And captured me eternally.
“Go to sleep, Lyric,” he whispers, his breathing ragged.
I nod, still terrified to open my eyes. Terrified I’ll lose this moment.
A moment I know I’ll be able to fill pages and pages with the most powerful lyrics I’ve ever written. All about him and that kiss.

Control Me Review!

Five Stars
My Review



I cannot form words quite yet. I will though, review to come!

EDIT:

SO I read this book in an hour and a half. I 
loved to hate Carlos and you will see why. I think Mya is BATshit crazy but she is sweet. There is so many twists and turns that will make you scratch your head like 'what the hell was she doing?' but then smile at how crazy she is. I love how it was fast pace but over a course of just weeks. You wanted to see what was going to happen next with each page turn. For me Mya reminds me of that movie 'Obsessed' with Beyonce in it. The woman that wanted her husband carries the same traits as Mya and you wonder at how far she will go to have Carlos forever.

I loved their chemistry. They both try to deny it and it is their downfall in the end, you can tell they have chemistry and emotions they wish they didn't feel. They have so many reactions to each other and denying it further makes them weaker than they think.

I will be 
dying for book three until Feb, like dying because I want to know what happens between these two. They are addicting to read about yet you want to sometimes shake the characters and say "what the hell are you thinking buddy!" yup, happened a lot yesterday.

Carlos was 
interesting, I mean he was sexy as hell as a character but the dominating shit he did made me want to smack him and kiss him all at the same time. You know? No? Well you will.

Mya, this girl... She is 
intelligent and just a little off the crazy side but hey we all have our feats and that is hers. She is like a kid though and I hope she grows in the next book because I wanted to gouge out her eyes at times. She has so much potential she just chooses to take the easy route out of fear and that is what makes her weak. She can be so much more if she believed in herself more.

My favorite parts were figuring out the little details that most people will probably see unimportant but really it will come and kick you in the butt later. You will see what I mean when you read it. If you pull out your hair in anger at how these two avoid their feelings, don't worry... I did too. It was nice, not really but hey, this book is amazing with it's plot twists and the sex was more than mind-blowing, can't forget that ;)

LACES AND LACE

Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other…or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love?

Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she’s most passionate about. She’s a fighter, a survivor, and has everything she’s ever wanted but the one thing that matters most—love.

Karson is doing the one thing he loves most—playing hockey for the Assassins, yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago—Lacey.

Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present, and a possible future?

Can two people with fate on their side find a way back to each other? Overcome all the obstacles in their way to finally live life together to the fullest?

Or will they let those around them and the circumstances they face, along with questions and doubt, ruin a second chance at the life they both deserve?

Synopsis

When Ella Daniels and Micha Scott are fourteen, they make a pact to leave

begins to intensify. Feelings change. Grow. Veer towards love.

But one tragic night changes everything. Hearts get broken. And the future

Ella and Micha. It contains glimpses of when Ella and Micha were younger,

Excerpt

As we pull our hands away, I grow nervous because now I have to actually
kiss him. And not just kiss him, but kiss my first guy ever.

“Are you sure you want to do this?” I double check, wiping my palm on my
jeans. “Because I don’t know what I’m doing.”

“I’ll show you.” He’s already leaning in, his intense aqua eyes zeroed in on
my lips.

My heart dances like a crazy person in my chest, and I feel like I’m going
to throw up. “Micha, I …” I trail off, sucking in a huge breath as his lips
touch mine. My fingers tense around the chains and my whole body stiffens
while I try to figure out what on earth I’m supposed to be doing. Clearly
not just sitting here, frozen.

“Relax,” Micha whispers, putting a small bit of space between our lips.

Thinking the kiss is over, I let out a quiet, relieved breath. But the
relief is short lived because, a microsecond later, his head dips forward
and his lips brush against mine again. Only, this time, it’s different. This
time, he slips his tongue into my mouth.

Oh, my God, his tongue is in my mouth.

Micha Scott’s tongue is in my mouth.

And I just touched my tongue to his.

Before I can even register what’s happening, we’re kissing. And I mean full
on French-kissing. It goes on for what feels like minutes, our knees
knocking against each other as Micha plays with my hair and continues to
kiss me. Unfamiliar feelings prickle inside me, ones I’m pretty sure I’ve
never felt before, and that terrifies the living daylights out of me. They
make me feel so...

Out of control.

And Micha is supposed to be my stability.

I’m about to pull away because I can’t take the terror hounding inside me
anymore when a loud crash echoes from nearby and we both jerk apart,
wide-eyed and gasping for air. My cheeks start to burn and even Micha
appears embarrassed, which has never happened before—at least, from what
I’ve seen.

Seconds later, reality crashes over me.

Oh, my God, I just kissed my best friend.
