Blurb

A STANDALONE NOVEL that does NOT need to be read in conjunction with any other book.

From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a friends-to-lovers story with sexy new characters.

After getting dumped, the last thing I needed was to move next door to someone who reminded me of my ex-boyfriend, Elec.

Damien was a hotter version of my ex.

The neighbor I’d dubbed “Angry Artist” also had two massive dogs that kept me up with their barking.

He wanted nothing to do with me. Or so I thought until one night I heard laughter coming through an apparent hole in my bedroom wall.

Damien had been listening to all of my phone sessions with my therapist.

The sexy artist next door now knew all of my deepest secrets and insecurities.

We got to talking.

He set me straight with tips to get over my breakup.

He became a good friend, but Damien made it clear that he couldn’t be anything more.

Problem was, I was falling hard for him anyway. And as much as he pushed me away, I knew he felt the same…because his heartbeat didn’t lie.

I thought my heart had been broken by Elec, but it was alive and beating harder than ever for Damien.

I just hoped he wouldn’t shatter it for good.

Author’s note – Neighbor Dearest is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Excerpt

Penelope Ward

Looking tense, he placed his hands slowly into his pockets as he looked at me. “What exactly happened last night?”

“What are you talking about?”

Nice try dodging the question.

He moved in closer to me. “What am I talking about? You leaving me with a giant fucking basket of muffins and running off before I could even say anything? Ring a bell?”

“I thought you’d be alone. It caught me off guard.”

His eyes softened. “You were upset…”

“No, I wasn’t.”

“You’re a terrible liar, Chelsea. Fucking horrible at it. You don’t hide your feelings very well.”

“You think you know just about everything there is to know about me, don’t you?”

“Not everything. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to read you. It’s one of the things I like about you, though. You’re one of the least fake people I’ve ever met.”

“Then, tell me. Why do you think I was upset?”

“Honestly? I think you’re confused about me.”

“Confused…”

“Yes. I think you’re wondering why I opted not to have dinner with you and instead ended up with a woman I’d literally just met, someone who isn’t as sweet as you and sure as fuck isn’t as pretty as you. So, you’re wondering what the hell I was thinking. Am I right?”

That’s exactly what I was thinking.

He continued, “I know we haven’t known each other for very long, but I do feel a connection with you, okay? If you’ve sensed something, you’re not imagining it.”

“Well, if I wasn’t confused before…now I definitely am.”

“I feel like I need to say this now, because I can’t stand the thought of you thinking that I somehow find you undesirable when it’s exactly the opposite.”

I crossed my arms. “Again. Not following you.”

He closed his eyes as if to try to find the right words. “It’s just that I know for sure that I can’t ever be what someone like you needs in a boyfriend, in a partner. It’s not that we wouldn’t have fun or be great together at first. I’m just not good for you in the long-term—not marriage material. And the reasons are too complex to get into, except to say that it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with me. I can’t, in good conscience, start something with a girl like you.”

“A girl like me…”

“Yes. You’re not the kind of girl a guy takes home for a quick fuck. You’re the girl he keeps.”

Right. Just like Elec did.

5🍀 Review All The Rage by TM Frazier

5🍀 Review All The Rage by TM Frazier

Where do I even attempt to begin with this? Frazier has managed to do it once again. There is a very good reason why her fans call her the Evil Ginger.

Every time I read one of Frazier’s books I’m left gagging for more. What’s even worse is that All The Rage is a standalone so there is no need to want any more, but you fall so in love with her characters that you want to continue following their lives.

All The Rage follows on from the action in Lawless/Soulless and is set within that world. However you could easily pick this book up and follow the narrative without that extra information.

Through this book we meet back with Rage and learn more about her and what makes her such an interesting and developed character. As always with Frazier her female characters have a strength that is difficult to match, which is why they need such strong male counterparts. Rage finds this and more with Nolan.

There’s not a lot I can say about the actual narrative of the story without giving away A LOT. So suffice it to say that it would’t be a T M Frazier book if it wasn’t volcanically hot and she didn’t make everyone suffer at one point or another. However as always Frazier makes it hurt so good and worth it all in the end.

all the rage cover

Blurb

They call me Rage.

My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.

I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.

You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.

And I’m a killer.

This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the s**t buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.

Without dwelling on the past.

Until him.

It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.

And my first love.

I have to choose.

The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.

Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger…

 

All the Rage is a STANDALONE

Pennies Series

Blurb
“At 18 I had pennies, but money didn’t make me bold. At 19 I had dollars, but it didn’t dull the pain of being sold. At 20 I had hundreds, but then I met him and was found. At 21 I had thousands, but all I wanted was to be bound.”

“At 23 I had dollars, but life changed and made me rich. At 25 I had hundreds, but it wasn’t enough to stop my killing itch. At 27 I had thousands, but my reputation didn’t set me free. At 29 I had millions, but I met her and could finally see.”

Tasmin was killed on her 18th birthday. She had everything planned out. A psychology degree, a mother who pushed her to greatness, and a future anyone would die for. But then her murderer saved her life, only to sell her into a totally different existence.

Elder went from penniless to stinking rich with one twist of fate. His lifetime of crime and shadows of thievery are behind him but no matter the power he now wields, it’s not enough. He has an agenda to fulfil and he won’t stop until it’s complete.

But then they meet.

A beaten slave and a richly dressed thief. Money is what guided their separate fates. Money is what brought them together. And money is ultimately what destroys them.

She was poor.

He was rich.

Together…they were bankrupt.

5 🍀 Review for Je Suis à Toi by Pepper Winters

5 🍀 Review for Je Suis à Toi by Pepper Winters

Je Suis à Toi by Pepper Winters is follow up novella to her amazing Monsters in the Dark Series (If you haven’t read the series yet rectify that here: US:http://amzn.to/1AElX6H UK: http://amzn.to/1ElHi9B B & N: http://bit.ly/1wK3MRr iTunes: http://apple.co/1MBZr4O Google: http://bit.ly/1zSget3)

“Life taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.”

JE SUIS A TOI

I adored Q and Tess the first time round and when I heard we were getting more esclave and mâitre I was ecstatic. I wasn’t disappointed.

In some circles the name Pepper Winters in synonymous with dark, twisty and hot. She scores on all these fronts in Je Suis à Toi.

What I enjoyed most about this book was that we got to see Q and Tess deal with ‘normal’ everyday events but int heir own unique way. Reading this book was like coming home to old friends. Winters seamlessly brought us back into their world without missing a beat. The personalities and lives of all our favourite characters have evolved since the last book, as they should, so everything they encounter and their reactions are all appropriate and in keeping with the original stories.

The bedroom scenes are as hot as ever, in fact Winters has stepped it up a notch with some of them!

3qq9j6pemorzg

I read this book in one sitting because I was almost immediately submerged back in to the wonderful world of Q and Tess. While reading this story I was again struck by organic their narrative is. This isn’t BDSM for whips and chains sake, it is an intrinsic part of Q and Tess’ relationship and I love that Winters doesn’t shy away from it. In fact she celebrates it through her writing and through their relationship. Their sex life is never justified through either protagonists’ pov.

This was not an addition to the series for the sake of prolonging it. It was a beautiful, well told story that enhanced what was already there. It is an important and fundamental part of their story.
