EXCERPT


I watched him stride across the café toward the door, hating the way everything tightened when he did.
His or mine, I wasn’t sure.
But it was there.
Heavy.
Pressing on my heart.
I couldn’t stop from watching him through the big windows as he started down the sidewalk, the man a scorching silhouette in the blaze of the day.
But he didn’t climb into his car that was parked at the curb.
He began to pace.
A pace that looked like indecision and turmoil.
Back and forth right on the other side of the window.
His head tilted back toward the sky, as if it might hold an answer, before he set his coffee and the lollipops down on one of the open tables, dug in his pocket, and pulled out his phone.
“You’re an idiot,” Jenna hissed from beside me. “That guy likes you, and he’s literally the hottest thing to ever walk through that door. And he bought All. The. Lollipops.”
Maybe that was part of the problem.
“I don’t get simple,” was my response.
“What if he doesn’t want simple?”
I would have answered her, told her that in the end, everyone did. They always took the easy way out when the going got tough. Except the café phone rang. I moved for it, thankful for the distraction, something to keep my feet from rounding the counter and running after him.
Because what the hell would that accomplish?
I lifted the receiver from the wall and pressed it to my ear. “A Drop of Hope. How can I help you?”
“Go out with me.” His gravelly voice echoed through the line.
A surprised sound whispered from my lips, and Kale was suddenly at the window, his face pressed to the glass, hand shading his eyes so he could see inside. His other hand was holding his cell to his ear. “Go out with me, Hope. Just dinner. Because I can’t fucking stop thinking about you. Couldn’t after I saw you the first time at Olive’s on Friday night. It only got worse after I saw you here Monday morning. I don’t know what it is about you . . . but there’s something that makes me want to figure it out.”
My breaths were hard pants, my heart a jackhammer in my chest. “My life’s complicated, Kale.”
“And I’m offering you a night away from it. Don’t you at least deserve that?”
I wanted to beg him, what then? What happened if I fell for that smirk and that smile and those tender eyes?
Fast and hard?
I could already feel myself slipping. My heart tipping his direction.
What happened if Dane found out?
What then?
But I was so tired of that man controlling every aspect of my life, even after I’d made the decision to cut him from it.
Jenna was suddenly in my face, gripping my wrist, her voice a hard, demanding whisper. “You tell him yes, Harley Hope. Don’t you dare hang up that phone without telling him yes. You deserve something just for you. Just for you.”
Indecision swarmed, questions and worries and want.
But it was the feeling balled in my stomach that trembled the floor beneath my feet.
The urge to reach out and touch on the beauty and tenderness that swam in his eyes. To discover if it was real.
The throb of desire that begged, a whisper in my ear that goaded—just one touch.
The hidden need to feel those hands skating my flesh.
I guessed I’d thought I’d never crave that again, my life fulfilled, my spirit content in knowing I was living for what was right.
Jenna squeezed tighter, my bossy best friend mouthing the word as she angled her head with the demand. “Say yes.”
It was at the same second Kale fisted his hand against the window, his forehead rocking against it, his own words a petition. “Come on, Hope. Say yes. I promise you, you won’t regret it.”
A hint of playfulness came out on the last, but it didn’t matter, because I was agreeing.
“Yes,” I murmured, wanting to feel something good even though I wasn’t so much a fool that I didn’t know I was making a mistake. That in the end, it wouldn’t hurt.
Because it already felt as if this mattered.
As if he mattered.
“Okay. One night. Just dinner,” I reiterated.
He breathed out in what sounded like relief. “Just dinner.”
As if anything could ever be as simple as that.

Review: Natural Witch

Natural Witch Natural Witch by K.F. Breene
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love when an author continues a previous series with a character that wasn't the main character but a prominent one and K.F. Breene doesn't disappoint with Penny's story. A natural witch coming into her powers, that is out of this world, always finding herself in trouble in one way or another. One man with his own demons to slay, coming to her rescue unknowingly. This story also explains were Darius went in the Fire and Ice Trilogy sometimes. I can't wait for more of Penny's story.

Review: Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings

Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings by Michelle Fox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

REVEALED by Michelle Fox – What would you do if you found out the one thing that can nourish a person could, in fact, kill them instead? Personally, it would scare me but make me determined to find out why, all while trying to avoid the advances of the one that could quite possibly be my mate. I love the twists & turns this story has.

ETERNITY by Tami Lund – Can you imagine loving someone too much to keep them? Not me, if I love them that much I personally would never let them go, well unless it was one-sided, which it rarely is. To run away to an island only to find there are worst things than being a blood courtesans and to hope to be saved by the one person who set you aside, craziness. I wasn't expecting what happens in this story.

CONDEMNED by Julia Mills – What would you do to save a loved one from a death sentence for a crime he didn't commit? Why hire a lawyer that wants you for payment of course, but can you do it is the question. The secrets that unfold are quite shocking.

More to come...

Review: Moon Blood

Moon Blood Moon Blood by Carol McKibben
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read of Carol McKibben and I have to say I want to read more. This has different aspects of the wolf and vampire. I wasn't expecting what this story has going on and was pleasantly surprised and loved it from the very first page. So much action and the stories that unfold are amazing.

Review: Pursuit of Magic

Pursuit of Magic Pursuit of Magic by Linsey Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While Nix's story is my absolute fav out of this whole Dragon's Gift series, Bree's story is running a close second. You have a woman that is all kick butt on the outside but all squishy on the inside. Finding more and more about herself Bree and Cade along with some of the others go to battle to make things right. I am anxiously waiting for the next book of Bree's story.

Review: Fluidus Rising

Fluidus Rising Fluidus Rising by Margo Ryerkerk
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Couldn't imagine being pulled away from graduation, friends, everything you've ever known to be thrown into a world that you thought was only in books just to lose more. Sierra goes from being a normal girls to being a supernatural but proves to be a strong young woman and endures a lot throughout this story, with murders and kidnapping and a love/hate relationship, what more could a girl want HA. Love how this book flows and keeps up without giving everything away all at once. Margo Ryerkerk really did an amazing job pulling me in and keeping me in her world.
