Shards Of Us..

covers

 

Blurb:

We meet every Wednesday night in hotel room #364. We stay there until morning–kissing, laughing, healing one another. We’re both broken people, him with his alcoholic family, me with my murdered one. I don’t know who he is; I don’t ask for his name. I don’t question him. I only love how he makes me feel, how he makes me forget just how alone I am in this world, and for now, that’s all I need.

We have three rules:

1) No sex.
2) No personal questions.
3) No leaving the hotel room until morning. Not ever.

For four months, I followed the rules. I came to the hotel room every Wednesday night, and his presence never failed to cure me. I was happy with him. But one night, he doesn’t show. So when I hear a scream down the hallway, I can’t help myself. I break rule number three. I leave the room.

My life has never been the same since

Review:

Alright I did it. I finished it. I got through it people.. *phew*

So I saw this book’s blurb  and thought “Well, that sure, sounds intriguing…” Hhhmmm.. I should give it a go..

intrigued

Then as the time neared for me to read it i was lie “I have to have it now”

yes
Boy was I wrong…

Truthfully I tolerated this book up until 30% of it. Then it kind of had me in a constant “WTF” state.

wtf
And im not so sure how I feel about the ending. No scratch that.. I hated the ending, what Crystal made Sebastian do in the end was just plain weird and i didn’t like it. It didnt sit well with me. And then the Epilogue *tired sigh* I just do not understand these characters.. :-/

face
But I guess the one good thing about it is that they got their HEA.. As weird and unrealistic as it was they got it.

Blurb:

Kat MacGregor has forty-eight hours to make good on the debt her ex-boyfriend owes a crime boss. Unfortunately, the measly tips she makes waitressing are barely enough for her to live on, much less cover the twenty-thousand needed to keep her breathing. With time running out, Kat ‘s forced to accept help from the only man who’s ever made her feel fire rather than fear.

When he learns a friend’s sister is in trouble, former Boston MMA fighter Aiden “Irish” O’Brien heads to Louisiana to offer himself up as collateral to keep her safe. But to satisfy the debt, he has to do the one thing he swore hed never do again: fight. With more than just money on the line, will Irish have what it takes to not only reclaim the man he once was, but become the man he needs to be for the woman he can’t live without?

Review:

I gie this book 5 Sexy as sin, Alpha male, tatted up, protective MMA fighter stars!
Just look at the cover.. What more could a girl ask for! *Melts into a puddle*.

When I saw that I got an ARC from the author I was like

jd

 

And like..

excited

This book had me hooked from the very beginning and I finished it within 24 hours of starting it, that’s how absolutely amazeballz it is..

So basically Aiden “Irish” O’Brien is a sexy former MMA fighter who has been asked by his friend to watch over Kat because they fear she has gotten herself into some trouble she cannot get out of and she isn’t res

ponding to her sister’s calls and is shutting her out of her life.

Kat is a quiet yet feisty red head who has always had bad luck with men, she also has some serious issues from her past and has a hard time believing a man could actually love and take care of her without hurting her. She has never had a good male role model and is very scared by her past. Her “kind of” ex boyfriend, that she has been with for a long while, has gotten her into a bit of trouble and she is trying to find a way out of it.She has dealt with sexual abuse from a young age and does not know how a real sexual relationship between a man and a woman feels like.
Irish also has some secrets, one of them being that Kat does not know he was sent by her sister to watch and take care of her.
Things start getting steamy and heated between them, its’ hot, it’s sweet and oh so lovely. There is sex, and lots of it. And by this I mean…. HOLY HELL! HOT! HOT! HOT!*fanning self*

But they are not just screwing around, the sex is meaningful and beautiful .

They both make some mistakes, but eventually work through it and I’m glad to say, as with the other “Fighting for love” books there is a HEA. We also get to see a few of our favorite characters from “Seducing Cinderella and “Rules Of Entanglement”. And we also meet the gorgeous Xander, He is English, sweet, a lady’s man and I’m totally in love with him.

birthday

 

To you miss Gina L. Maxwell I say… 😀

applaus

 

You gave us a book full of pain, heart ache, suspense, danger and most importantly, love. The first thing that made my heart constrict a little was the dedication at the beginning of the book.

First read in 2014.. Restoring Jordan

Author: Elizabeth Finn

Blurb:

When Adeline Parker decides to celebrate landing a coveted internship at one of Chicago’s most prestigious architectural firms by indulging in a brutally dark and handsome man, she gets more than she bargained for.

Lost in a maze of hallways on the first day of her new position, she stumbles headlong into a boardroom of suits. Very expensive suits. They are the somebodies of this prestigious firm, and she is, by all accounts, the very definition of a nobody. And sitting at the table with the rest of the principals from the firm is a man—the very man who unwittingly deflowered her only days before.

From the look of it, Jordan Ellinwood is none too happy to see her again; by his own admission, he’s a one-night-stand man, and the fact she conned him into taking her virginity isn’t sitting well with him either. But as her path is inextricably attached to his, their closeness will no longer be a choice.

As an intern, she’s off-limits, and that says nothing of the fact he’s twelve years older than she is. But when coworkers bent on jealousy and resentment threaten her reputation and internship, the long-dormant emotions Jordan has so effectively stifled fight to break free. And as he struggles to get out of his own way long enough to let her see his compassion, her career is jeopardized and leaves him fighting with every last ounce of himself to save her.

Will it be enough? Can he overcome his emotional shortcomings in time to rescue her future and his own—now so very attached to hers?

Review: I’ts 2014 now, and the first thing I thought of when the clock hit 12 midnight was ” what will I be reading this year?” 😀 I know, I am boring right?

Anywho, I have heard a lot about this book and it has been on my TRL for a long while now, so I finally started it.

“Do you want to fuck me?”

omg

Wow…this book really starts out with a bang…literally. Jordan knows what he wants and he wants Adeline…but for the night only. He doesn’t do relationships and she’s fine to go along with the program, that is, till she gets to her new job on Monday and sees him there.

I always love the kind of stories where love breaks through/down walls. It was great seeing Jordan realize how much he wants Adeline and if he truly loves her with having no experience at loving anyone. (I loved the play on the title and Jordan.)

Adeline was equally out of her element but having no experience she really tried to listen to her feelings and at the same time, protect herself. It was really hard reading about all the mean things done to her but I loved how Jordan always defended her.

These two were hot together…and some scene were a bit crazy. Their time in the rain was probably my favorite. I did get a bit tired of them going back and forth with their feelings but I guess it all added to the drama. Im 50% into the book right now and i’m totally loving it.
