REVIEW - Big Girls Box Set Jasinda Wilder


Boxset synopsis

An Amazon Top 10 HOT NEW RELEASE!                 
An Amazon Bestseller!  
                                                      
*
Don't miss the sequel to this series Big Girls Do It Married.*

***Enjoy all four of the Big Girls Do It stories in one volume, with special expanded scenes available only in this collection!***

~Big Girls Do It Better

Gorgeous, rock-star guys like Chase Delany don't go for girls like me. They go for supermodels and actresses, skinny-girls who never eat and spend all day working out. I'm not that girl. So when he locked his fiery brown eyes on me for the first time, I couldn't quite believe it was really happening to me. 

It was the second night I spent with him that I'll never forget. 

~The Long Drive Home (bonus short story)

~Big Girls Do It Wetter
Chase went to New York...without me. It was only one night, one delicious, sinful night, but it awakened something within me, and now, with him gone, I have no one to satiate my sudden, ferocious hunger. Then I woke up one day and looked at someone near and dear to me in a whole new light. And my world was rocked once again.

~Big Girls Do It Wilder
I'm going. Going to New York City to be with gorgeous, mysterious, rockstar Chase Delany seemed like a crazy dream, a fantasy come true. The bright lights and music, and his tight, sexy leather pants called to me...and I answered. Chase might want more and I just might give it to him, if I could only forget what I started with Jeff back in Detroit.

I thought I had my love life all figured out, I thought I knew what I wanted, and then things went and changed on me all over again...

~Big Girls Do It On Top
I fled New York with my heart breaking and a million questions. Foremost in my mind was whether Jeff would even see me after the colossal mess that New York turned out to be. 

I discovered the answer, but that only spawned even more questions, many of the yes or no variety...

Natalie's Review

Oh my golly gosh this series is fab, I have had this Boxset on my kindle for ages and have been meaning to read for a while, well I finally managed to get to it of the Christmas holidays and I am kicking myself i waited so long! Why did I wait so long! 

Oh man I have never changed my mind so much when reading a book, chase had my vajaja doing the conga I wanted him he is perfection(although what's with the leather pants? Think Ms Wilder has a fetish) I wanted Anna to pick him, then you meet jeff and Chase gets on your nerves and you want her to pick Dependable loyal jeff, but then chase has your vajaja dancing  again and you just wish you could have them both lol ohhhhh my mind is going to the gutter.

Anyway the story goes from one decision to another and you can never quite decide what you want 

I give this Boxset 5 Stars what a fab read

Book Synopsis


Life was finally starting to make sense. And then he showed up...again. Now, I have to make the biggest decision of my life, and someone will end up heartbroken. I can only hope that someone isn't me.

Natalie's Review

This book starts where the las one ended, Chase shows up and asks her to marry him, two days after Jeff asks her to marry him, Anna is so confused she isn't sure who she loves or who she will choose and spends her time thinking of why she loves each of them and what her future will hold with whoever she picks.

jasinda wilder knows how to keep you gripped with her books, you constantly change your mind with who you want Anna to pick

Another 5star from me

About the book


***Rock Stars Do It Harder is the pilot story for a Big Girls spinoff-sequel series. It is best to read this after the Big Girls Do It books 1-5 to avoid major spoilers.***

Chase Delany is a rock star. Rock stars are expected to rock hard onstage and party even harder offstage. Chase is living up to those expectations, and then some. He leaves everything he's got onstage, and drowns the ache in his soul at the bottom of a tequila bottle. And then there are the girls. They throw themselves at him nonstop, a never-ending train of hot girls who want in his signature tight leather pants. The problem? Nothing, no amount of booze and no amount of backstage sex can heal the cracks in his heart left by Anna's rejection. And then he runs into Jamie. Anna's best friend. The one girl in the whole world who is off limits to him. The one girl who happens to be the one thing that seems to soothe the hurt inside him. Forgetting her proves to be impossible.

Jamie Dunleavy has always been an enthusiastic practitioner of the sexual arts. She's never apologized for it, and she owns it. She's been known to admit--to her best friend Anna Devine, at least--that she's a bit of a slut. Her deep, dark secret? She's tired of it. She doesn't want to be that girl anymore. She wants love, now more than ever, having watching Anna find her own happily-ever-after. So who does she find herself falling for? Chase Delany. Anna's very recent ex. A rockstar, and the one guy she knows she can't ever, ever be with. You don't bang your best friend's ex. You just don't. It's the one hard and fast rule of best friendship. Except, no matter how hard she tries to forget him, she can't seem to shake the image of his dark eyes and sexy tattoos and those lips she wants so badly to kiss and kiss until neither of them can breathe. She can't forget him, and she can't ever have him. 

** This 22,000 word romance novella is for adults.**

Natalie's Review

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm one word Chase, oh boy if you thought chase was hot in the big girls books, you ain't seen anything, Chase is HOTTTTTTTTTT, he is panty dripping, knicker wetting toe curling smoking hot and I want one.  I think I love this series more than the big girl one. 

We start this book where married finished, and chase is drowning in self pity after he has had his heart broken, so the last thing he expects is to feel a connection with Anna's best friend Jamie 

He knows that nothing can ever happen between them, but everything about her draws him in and he finds it hard to resist what he can't have

Another fantastic book 5 sexy stars

About The Book

***Rock Stars Do It is a Big Girls spinoff-sequel series. It is best to read this after Big Girls Do It books 1-5 to avoid major spoilers.***

Falling in love with your best friend's ex sucks. It isn't fair to want the one thing you can't have. But the kind of soul-deep need Chase and Jamie felt for each other wasn't concerned with whether it was a good idea to be together or not. Should they fight for a relationship that came with a tangled web of broken hearts and complications, or should they just let it go, despite knowing that forgetting each other would prove painful and impossible?

This romance novella is book 2 in the Rock Stars Do It series.

Natalie's Review

Ohhh this book was great, Chase and Jamie have fought their attraction towards each other but can't fight it any longer. But what will Anna say when she finds out, will their friendship survive.

As much as I wanted Chase and Anna together I was rooting for Chase and Jamie from the very beginning! they just seem to work and the chemistry is off the scales

Fantastic book sets the whole series off and makes a fantastic series even stronger

Perfect Lie by Teresa Mummert blog tour.




Title: Perfect Lie 
Author: Teresa Mummert 
Blog Tour: December 18th-30th 
Release Date: December 17th, 2013 

Synopsis: 

Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes 
all rational thought. 

That's why Brock and I never had a chance. I had to start my life over. College was my 
chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but 
one person saw through my facade. 

The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I 
still hadn't healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel 
struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he 
revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew. 

A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force 
me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.


Alicia's Review:

HOLY HEAVENS ABOVE. Shocker of the best kind.

I've read thousands of books and it's not very often you get such a huge shock that will knock the wind out of you.

So I'm on this amazing journey with these characters then WHAM! Oh NO you didn't!

Oh yes she did! Teresa just blew the ball out the park. Holy Crap.

I'm like: What the hell just happened?

Speechless...

wow.

I am telling you lovelies nothing, NOTHING about this book. It's a book you MUST read to understand what ride I've been taken on. I love Teresa's stories. They're always amazing but this one, Perfect Lie, is just spectacular.

The angst and high emotions throughout this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. There is nothing predictable about this book so don't even try to guess.

Perfect Lie brings a whole new meaning to Happily Ever After, that;s for sure.

I'm not sure whether I want to hug, kiss and high-five Teresa or if i want to throw myself at her, cry and give her a great thump for what she put me through.

5 stars and I wish I could give it more - It's just that good!

Author Bio:

"I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.

BLOG TOUR - Her by Felicia Johnson 1/15


Title: Her
Author: Felicia Johnson
Publication Date: May 22, 2013


In many ways, Kristen Elliott is a normal, seventeen-year-old girl. Kristen loves her family. She works hard academically, and tries to please her mother. She takes on the additional responsibility of caring for her twin siblings, Nick and Alison. She idealizes her best friend, Lexus, who not only seems to lead the perfect life, but also catches the attention of John, the boy Kristen secretly loves. However, as is the case with many teenagers, Kristen feels frustrated, isolated, and confused.

In other ways, Kristen is not like other kids her age. She knows something is wrong with her. Kristen feels like an utter failure. She is unable to please her abrasive mother, and scared to confront Jack, her abusive stepfather. She is also unable to protect Nick from Jack, making her fell all the more helpless. Adding to her problems, she knows she will never be as beautiful as her best friend Lexus. Kristen finds solace in self-injury, and the company of Mr. Sharp, her imaginary friend who encourages her feelings of self-loathing.

After a failed suicide attempt, Kristen is placed in the Bent Creek mental hospital, where she is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. While in the hospital, she meets a group of peers suffering with their own mental illnesses, and a compassionate staff of doctors and counselors. From there, Kristen begins her journey to survival. She discovers the circumstances that brought her to this breaking point, struggles to understand her mental illness, and fights to be a survivor against her own worst enemy: her self-blame.

Kristen’s tale of endurance illustrates the complex illness of Borderline Personality Disorder. Readers – including those suffering from BPD and their friends and family – can glean insight into the illness from Kristen’s humanity. Her story is an example of how, if we try to push the past away, we are either doomed to repeat it or let it haunt us to our graves.

Jennifer's Review

This is one of the most intense books I have ever read.  When I started this book I was not really sure what to think about it because it was so different from the type of book that I normally read, but I am really glad that I read this.  I found myself having to stop reading several times through this book because Kristen’s journey is so emotional that I just had to have a break at times.  There were times through this book where it seemed that her pain was real enough for you to feel it as the reader.  Even when I had to take a break from the book I constantly felt drawn back to it because I just had to know how Kristen’s journey would end.  I just had to know if she would be able to overcome her battle with Borderline Personality Disorder.  I highly recommend this book to any and everyone.  This book is a raw and emotional journey through the world of one girl’s battle with mental illness.  This is not a story that will be easily forgotten after you finish reading it.  

Felicia Johnson has done a wonderful job with this book and I give her 5 stars.  I look forward to reading more books by this amazing author.  



Felicia Johnson is a writer, youth mentor, student, and big sister. She loves ice cream, and seeing her little sister, Laura, smile.

Excerpt

From under his strands of hair, I could see his lips shivering and his teeth chattering. He
hugged himself tightly and bunched his knees to his chest.
“I didn’t hear you come in,” I told Mr. Sharp.
He wouldn’t look up at me.
“Are you afraid?” I asked him.
He didn’t answer.
I felt the blood drip down my finger. I pulled my hand out of my pocket, and the sharp butterfly
fell into the palm of my bloody hand. Mr. Sharp stayed crouched up on the seat. He looked at
my hand and his shivering lips would not give me that smile I was waiting for.

“What’s wrong? I need you! Help me!”He bit down on his lip and kept his head low. He
wouldn’t let me see his eyes. I pressed the sharp butterfly wing to my hand
and twisted the wing into my palm. I screamed in pain as I twisted and made the blood squeeze
out.

“You said you’d be there for me! You said you’d help me breathe! I need to breathe! Mr.
Sharp! Mr. Sharp, please don’t leave me!”

“You have to stop,” he whispered hoarsely.
“What?”
“You have to stop,” he repeated.
“I can’t! I can’t breathe. The ball keeps turning, and it’s hard for me to breathe.”

Mr. Sharp turned away from me and, without opening the door, he stepped outside into the
pouring rain. He started walking towards thebridge that led to the highway. I began to open
the driver’s side door when Mom’s cell phone rang. I looked down and saw that Mom was
calling from her office. The phone rang continuously. She was calling because it was
after 3:00pm, and Nick had promised he would call her if I wasn’t there on time. I looked at the
phone, and then out the window that had begun to fog. Mr. Sharp was still on the path to the
bridge.

I slammed the door shut when I was out of the car, and I ran as fast as I could in the pouring
rain to get to him. When I caught up with him, he was at the top of the bridge, looking down
from the overpass.

Mr. Sharp kept his head low as he yelled over the noise of the traffic. “Jack was right!”

“No! He was never right!”“Yes, he was! You got what you deserved, Kristen, because you failed! He’s going to come back and he’s going to show you! You’ll see! She’s going to take him back!”
“She wouldn’t do that!”
“Yes, she would, if she knew that it would get rid of you! You are useless! You are ugly! You
are a loser!”
“Why?” I screamed out to him.
A car horn honked loud enough to make me jump. I had somehow walked out into traffic.
The car swerved and passed me.

Excerpt
He slid his wet lips to the inside of her knees, kissing and sucking. She arched her back, feeling hot and flustered. She wanted... She wanted...
“Oh David,” she moaned. “Please, please.”
“What do you want Shania?” he asked. His lips moved higher, kissing her right butt cheek, then her left. Then she felt a sharp pain. She tensed, bowing off the bed, tension filling her muscles. He bit her ass and bit her again, right where he had kissed. He gently licked the spots, soothing the pain. “Remember what I told you, Shania?” he asked. “A little pain and a lot of pleasure—hand in hand they go.”
Shania was beyond thinking or remembering. She could only feel. When she felt his tongue on her pussy, she stiffened. He licked from back to front.
“You should taste how sweet you are Shania,” he murmured as he gently sucked her clit into his mouth. Slowly he worked her peak with his tongue, increasing the suction as he slid a finger into her opening.
“Oh my God, David…Oh! Oh! I don’t know …David I want…”
“Let go Shania,” David said softly as he inserted a second finger into her hot little sheath. He began to scissor his fingers then curled and touched a spot she did not even know existed. Shania exploded!” Lights flashed and stars appeared. She shattered into a million pieces and fell forward on the bed oblivious to anything around her.

Character Bios
Shania was a Kentucky girl, raised in horse country, with racing in her blood and spirit in her soul. She set her sights on David at an early age, and had never wavered. He was her destiny... at least she thought so.
David was a blend. Born in Texas, his roots were there no matter where he went. It was his solace, his place of restoration and peace. Kentucky was his second home though. He had spent more years in Versailles, KY than anywhere else in the world. He launched his business in Louisville, KY, and it was where he returned home to the people who loved him. He had always known the Ridgeways loved him, but passion was a whole different kind of emotion for him. He didn't know how to love like that. He had truly never belonged to anyone. He wasn't sure if he was capable of loving her. Stephan was a Greek. He spent his whole life in that small, yet powerful part of the world. He wanted Shania from the time he first saw her, but his job was to protect her and guide her. How could he make the transition from employee to lover? Antonio was a loyal company executive... or so Jack thought. He was Greek, but had spent most of his live traveling the world at the helm of the ship building division of Ridgeway, Inc. He owed the Ridgeway family a lot, and he always paid his debts. Jack was a Kentucky boy, Shania's brother, and David's best friend. He had been raised side by side with David, who, although never formally adopted by the Ridgeways, had been like a brother to him. He headed up the family empire now that his father had retired. He and his wife, Josslyn, lived in Louisville.

Review - A Filmstar, A Baby and a Proposal - CC Mackenzie


About The Book

Spend Christmas at Ludlow Hall. 
It's the time of year for friends and families, love and laughter... and romance. All burned-out film star Mathias Carter wants for Christmas is peace and a quiet place to brood on the disaster of his love-life. But when that disaster in the shape of Eve Langan arrives on his doorstep, Matt finds one kiss rocks his world... and now he has a fight on his hands to convince Eve he's the man of her dreams. 
As Christmas approaches all Bronte Ferranti wants is to spend it with Nico and her twins, while she awaits the birth of her third child... everything is going to plan... until her baby decides to be born too soon... is Bronte and Nico's Christmas going to be filled with heartbreak? Or will the magic of the festive season create a miracle? 
Meanwhile Rosie is having fun preparing for her first Christmas as Mrs. Alexander Ludlow... she's got everything organised and ready for the festivities... except she's forgotten something crucial... Rosie's going to give Alexander a Christmas he'll never forget. 

Natalie's Review

Ok I think I may have just found another book boyfriend and his name is Mathias or Matt for short.

Matt is your typical playboy actor, he is a love em (very little) and leave em (quite a lot) type of guy, he doesn't do love, he does hot pasionate sex, well he did until the day he looked into Eve's eyes and finally saw the love in them were reflected in his own, so he does the only thing he knows, he runs and hides and refuses to take her calls.

Several weeks later Matt with the help of the beautiful Nico realises that he has been fooling himself, no matter how hard he tries he knows he is in love with Eve and has to do everything he can to try and get her back... However when she turns up on his doorstep his life will not be the same again. 

I loved this book, I love the whole Ludlow hall series and I can't wait for the next book

I give this book 5 glorious stars

COVER REVEAL - One Ride by Chelsea Camaron 12/18




Title: One Ride (The Hellions Ride)
Author: Chelsea Camaron
Genre: Erotica
Publication Date: January 2014

Delilah “Doll” Reklinger never imagined her life with anyone that wasn’t a Hellion. She never imagined a Hellion would come along and prove himself worthy enough to her father, Roundman, Hellions Club President. Content in living in the bubble of safety the motorcycle club family has always provided, Doll never thought that danger surrounded her.

Roundman has kept the Hellions contained for the last thirty years by controlling the chaos surrounding their lifestyle. When the dangerous side to their business comes knocking on his door, he realizes his precious Doll isn’t safe. The Hellions code may be that women and children are off limits in any altercation or dispute, but that doesn’t mean their enemies follow that same moral compass.

His only child, now in danger from the association to him and his club, Roundman makes a decision. He sends her away to a charter club, in hopes that the trouble won’t follow.

One ride across the country. One simple ride. Talon “Tripp” Crews has been ordered to take Doll on one ride away and to keep her safe. She’s off limits, his head knows this, but his body can’t deny the sparks between them. She’s feisty, fierce, and fearless. Constantly in close confines together, can they deny the chemistry? Will they give into the attraction between them? Can one ride turn lust into love?

Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

Excerpt
Copyright © Chelsea Camaron 2013

Doll

“Tripp, you son of a bitch, I’m not done talkin’ to you.” He stops on the spot, but doesn’t turn around. Rex and Sass are standing still by their bike watching everything as it continues to unfold. He’s making no attempt to acknowledge me. Frustration running high, I march up behind him. I poke him in the shoulder, in an attempt to get him to turn around. When that fails, I jab my finger into the top of his shoulder. Still, nothing. Walking around to face him, I’m met with a mixture of laughter and lust in his eyes. He’s enjoying this, the fucker.

“You just fucking kissed me. I don’t even know your real damn name and you kissed me! You’ve insulted me, belittled me, taken me from my home to God knows where, and I don’t even know your fucking name!” I say jabbing my finger in his chest. Our eyes are now locked, battling each other in the stare downs of stare downs. My eyes are full of fury and his full of fun, maybe. Is this turning him on?

“If you’re running your mouth so I kiss you again, it ain’t gonna happen Doll. You’re wound up. You need to release the tension. How ‘bout we see if Jared can give you some ink?”

“You have lost your ever lovin’ fuckin’ mind if you think I’m going to let some friend of yours permanently mark my body. Again, I don’t even know your name. Yet, I’m supposed to trust some guy you know to tattoo me? Really? I may end up with Tripp tattooed on my ass.”

He laughs at me. Not the little ‘ha ha you’re so funny’ kind of laugh. No, Tripp folds over holding his stomach because he’s laughing so hard at me.

“What the fuck is so damn funny?”

Tripp stands up. The smile now gone from his face, replaced with his ever present serious glare, he looks directly at me.

“Get your ass inside. Shut the fuck up for two seconds so you can meet Jared.”

He walks off, heading for the front door. Sass is now beside me, as I stand here with a stupid look on my face.

“Come on, Doll. Let’s make the best of it. I’m game for new ink. You should get that tat you’ve been wanting with another damn bird. We’re stuck here until the guys have rested. Jared may be hot or have hot friends. You’re way too bitchy, loosen up some.”

“Sass, Delatorre had cameras in our house. How can I relax?”

“Fuck! He had what? Come on, let’s get inside and figure this shit out.” She says, taking me by the hand to the front door.

Walking inside we are surrounded by the designs on the red painted walls. Each intricate piece of work brings something new to life for someone. Hearing the buzzing of the tattoo gun in the back room, I’m immediately itching for a new tattoo. I have a sparrow on my right hip in memory of my mother and a robin on my wrist to represent the bond Sass and I share. Maybe Sass is right, and it’s time to get that tattoo I’ve been wanting on my left hip.

Tripp is leaning against the counter talking to a beautiful lady. She’s probably in her fifties, but time has treated her well. There’s vibrancy in her eyes as she’s chatting with Tripp, her face telling the story of a strong woman. We approach the counter.

“Doll, Sass, this is Momma C. And Momma C, you remember Rex. This is Doll and Sass.”

Introductions out of the way, I’m overwhelmed with a sense of comfort. Momma C gives me a feeling of home. Being around her reminds me of being with the ol’ ladies of the club. The level of nurturing and compassion that is held in the depths of Momma C’s eyes washes over me. I’m smiling and I’m comfortable here even with all the chaos surrounding my life. Tripp was right, I’m safe here. Even without meeting Jared it’s obvious Momma C will protect those around her.

A man with spikey hair, gaged ears, and full sleeved tattoos emerges from the back room. He’s followed by a man that walks over to Momma C pulling out his wallet, making it obvious he is a client. Immediately, the spikey hair man greets Tripp and Rex with that man half hug, back slap shit. When he’s done, he stares at me momentarily. He extends his hand. When I place my hand in his, he holds it.

“Name’s Delilah, but everyone calls me Doll. You must be Jared.” I say looking into his eyes. They tell the story of a strong man.

“Beautiful name for a beautiful woman. Tripp’s a lucky mother fucker.”

I laugh at his comment. “Tripp’s not my man.”

He pulls me into a hug and whispers in my ear, “With the death glare he’s giving me, I think he may disagree, Doll.” He kisses my cheek before releasing me.

He greets Sass quickly and escorts us to the back office area. The client is done paying, raises his hand in a slight salute wave in goodbye as he exits the building.

“Mom’s locking up. Here’s the key to the apartment upstairs. I’ll be here the whole time. No one will get to you without getting through me.” Jared informs us as he’s handing Tripp a key.

We go upstairs to the tiny apartment and settle in. Tripp’s in the shower. I update Sass on what I now know on Delatorre. Sass and I are restless, so we head back down to the tattoo shop. Finding Jared at a desk drawing, I smile at his focus. He seems like he’s good people, and maybe I shouldn’t have doubted Tripp. I need to learn to trust him.

“You need somethin’ Doll, Sass?” Jared asks looking up from his design to both of us.

“I’d like a new tattoo.”

“Sure thing, whatcha thinkin’ of getting?”

“I want an eagle on my left hip, stretching out in flight. Not overly big, but in its talon, I want it holding a very girly heart, not a lifelike heart, a feminine heart and a shield.”

He pauses, as a strange look comes across his face. “Doll, why do you want this specific tattoo?”

“An eagle represents the freedom of the motorcycle club world I live in. It’s talon holding my heart and a shield for protection. All my life I’ve been guarded and loved by all of the Hellions, not just my dad.”

“You’re sure you want an eagle and not the Hellions insignia?”

Irritation consumes me. Why is he questioning me? This is his job. I’ll pay for the damn tat. Cocking my hand on my hip, I glare at Jared. “It’s not my place to wear the insignia. Look, if you don’t want to do the tat that’s fine, just say so, enough with the bullshit.” Looking over at Sass for some sort of comfort as my frustration builds, she shrugs her shoulders like this is no big deal.

Hearing a noise behind me, I turn to see Tripp in the doorway. His hair down and wet. With his arms over his head gripping the door frame, and his jeans slung low on his hips, I can clearly see the toned ‘v’ of his lower abdomen peeking out from his shirt. The tattoos on his arms on display, as usual. Holy hell, he’s hot.

“What bullshit?” Tripp asks looking back and forth between Jared and me.

“Nothin’. I wanted ink, but Jared’s asking eighteen hundred questions like I’m trying to get married or some shit.”

“Hold the fuck up, princess. Tripp may be interested to know the exact tattoo you’re talkin’ about marking your body with.” Jared pipes up. Sass backs away from me, leaving me inching closer to Tripp.

“I wanted an eagle with an outstretched talon holding a heart and shield. It’s whatever now, you guys seem to know better. I’ll get my fucking ink elsewhere. I’m going to bed.” As I start to move to the doorway, Tripp moves his arms off the frame. Great, he’s going to block my exit. Then, I watch as he removes his shirt. The ink adorning his body is all on display. I see the tats of his forearms go all the way up his shoulders and he has a dragon that peeks on both sides, maybe it wraps across his back. What has my attention though, is the large eagle over his left shoulder blade is coming down with an extended talon holding a lifelike heart and a shield.

He says nothing, as his muscles twitch involuntarily. Before I can stop myself, I’m standing mere inches from him, as I reach out and slowly trace the details of the design. I start at the white of the eagles head, delicately I outline the bird. As I reach his talon, Tripp stiffens underneath me. He grabs my hand holding it to his heart, the very place the heart of the tattoo lands. He drops his head, our faces cheek to cheek. His hair has fallen down off his shoulder it tickles my face as his breathing sends chills down my spine as it hits my ear.

“My name is Talon Ward Crews. Talon is for an eagle’s talon as its tool and its weapon. Ward meaning guard and protector. The eagle guards and protects my heart.” He whispers to me.

BLOG TOUR - Star Of Bethlehem Sarah Daltry




Book Info:
Title: Star of Bethlehem (Flowering holiday novella)
Author: Sarah Daltry
Release Date: 11/18/2013
Publisher: SDE Press
Blurb:

Jack isn’t a rock star. He’s not the leader of a MC. He isn’t a billionaire. Lily’s not the daughter of a mob boss, or a stripper, or a virgin with a BDSM fascination. They’re just regular college kids, who somehow found each other in the middle of all the crap and chaos of growing up.

“With you, Jack, it was the first time I ever felt real. It was the first time anyone looked at me and saw substance. It was the first time I wanted to make someone see me.”

Jack and Lily have navigated his past, her desire to move on from her family’s demands of her, his depression, and her loneliness. Now, on New Year’s Eve, they have an entire year laid out ahead of them. First, though, Jack needs to meet Lily’s family, to be welcomed into her life. It’s intimidating, but with a sweater that is way too hot and his grandmother’s ugly car, he arrives at Lily’s gleaming house on a hill, ready to open himself up completely to her.

Inside the perfect, sparkling house, Lily waits for the boy she has come to love. But Lily’s house and family are a lot like her – shiny and pretty on the outside, with a sad emptiness on the interior. Lily wants to give Jack the one thing he has always dreamed of – family and love – but can she keep him from seeing how hollow a lot of the picture perfect life he fantasizes about really is?

This is a novella length work that follows Forget Me Not andLily of the Valley.

Natalie's review

Ah man, I think I'm in love and his name is Jack, ah I just want to take this beautiful broken guy, wrap him up and never let him go.

Jack is the same as he has always been broken insecure but so passionate the pages steam with every word you read. When you read this series by Sarah Daltry all you feel is complete and utter emotional connection to these carachters, when they laugh you piss your pants, when they cry you curl up In to fetal position and sob your heart out.

This is a novella lily is at her parents for New Years and tonight is the night that she introduces jack to her family, she is nervous for him she knows how important to him that her family likes him is, in her eyes Jack is who she needs and who she wants she doesn't care what anyone else thinks for it will always be him.

For jack he is a bag of nerves he doesn't want lily to feel ashamed of him, of who he is and where he is from, he still isn't sure he can be the person he thinks she needs.

What follows it more steamy sex, some fantastic family moments and sense of hope that life will just get better for Jack.

Sarah Daltry is an amazing emotionally charged writer, you feel every single word she writes

Another amazing 5stars from me

Teaser

I take his hand and pull him down beside me on my bed. I feel so complete in his arms, as if nothing can go wrong when he holds me. It’s all the other stuff. The world, people, pressure. Maybe it’s a little fear that things just ended with Derek. That one day, as quickly as I fell for Jack, I also fell out of love with Derek. I don’t have enough experience to know if that’s normal. What if it happens again?
“What? Tell me,” Jack whispers.
“Have you ever felt like your entire life is some surrealist’s joke? That you think you’re in control of it, while really, you’re probably just…”
“A melting clock?” he finishes and laughs. I look at him, disappointed that I can’t explain it, but also relieved that he doesn’t care.
“All the fucking time,” he saysI know you’re scared. I know I’m scared. But I seem to remember you telling me that I should remember what matters. I made you a promise, princess. Yes, your house intimidates me. Your life intimidates me. Hell, loving you intimidates me. But I’m in this. I’m here. Present. Entirely. I’m looking only forward. And all I see is you.
“Take the damn book,” I tell himI just wanted to show you that I have faith in us. It was a conscious decision to give you something that was a very special gift to me, to tell you that I trust you with it, because I trust you to be there. Long term.”
He takes me in his arms and kisses me. I decide I won’t stop him if he goes further, but he doesn’t. Our bodies crackle with the energy between us, but as much as the sex thrills me, Jack does so much more for my mind than his body could even do. I can’t believe how alive I feel when he’s near me. Perhaps it’s selfish. Perhaps it’s desperate. But I want him here in my life; I want him with me, because I love being this aware.
I speak against his cheek, while his hands slowly explore my body. It’s sensual but not sexual. He’s studying me like a work of art. “I don’t want to fall out of love with you. I thought Derek was all I ever wanted. I don’t want to be in the same place with you a year from now.”
“You won’t be,” he tells me.
“How do you know?”
He kisses along my face, brushing his lips against my cheek, my forehead, my nose, but never reaching my mouth. “I don’t know how. But I do.
I love that he can put aside his doubts to ease my own. I know Jack’s had so much trouble in his life, and the fact that he can comfort me, when my problems are so petty and stupid in the scheme of things, is one more thing I love so much. “I know I’m shallow. But I don’t want to be, Jack.”
“You’re not shallow. You’re not empty. Anything you think of yourself – it’s crazy. If you want to talk about surreal, it’s the fact that you think you’re less than something. Maybe you didn’t get shit on the same way I did in high school, but clearly, people have underestimated you. They missed out on you. And you have every right to be hurt. But, Lily? No one will ever hurt you again.
I smile. “Thanks. I’m sorry I’m being so moody. It’s probably hormones or something. I think I’m just frustrated.
“Yeah?” He laughs. “Well… I mean… I can help you relieve some of that.”
He’s on top of me and I don’t care that it wasn’t exactly what I meant. I don’t care that someone could walk in. Someone probably will walk in, since eventually they’ll come looking, butI don’t care at all. I want to belong to Jack, and I don’t know any other way to do so.
