Review by Jenny
5 Emotional Stars
I was given the book for an honest review for Through the Booking Glass blog. 

OMG! It's been over a week & I'm still wrecked! What an amazing book! This book is the 1st I've read of author Leigh Ann Lunsford & it won't be the last! It had me hooked from the very beginning when they were just little kids! It had the right amount of angst, sadness, joy, love, sorrow, surprise, heat & suspense!

Luke & Phoebe(Twinkle) grew up together & he made a vow to always protect her from harm. What no one knew was that she would have one hell of a rough life! Not only did Phoebe have to deal with medical problems her whole life but tragedy strikes & Luke is faced with some tough decisions. 

Luke is amazing! He was so protective & strong! Even in the darkest of days, Luke always was there for his Twinkle! It made me cry several times from the overwhelming love that these two had!

Towards the end, the book take a turn that I WAS NOT EXPECTING!!! I was saying NO NO NO!! I know Ms Evilness Lunsford did NOT just go there! YEP! She did! I still love her but I did hate her for a brief minute! ;)

I LOVED the ending! It was a perfecting ending for this beautiful & amazing story! There are MANY touchy subjects in here but all very relevant! It's a story that needed to get told & I'm honored to have read it!

Publisher: Blue Tulip Publishing

expired regrets 

  Synopsis   

 I was a hopeless romantic, enjoying my life as I finished out my senior year of high school. My life was that of a typical student, nothing exciting happening to me until the day I met him. Bryant was everything I wanted, but never knew was possible. The problem was, he didn't feel the same way. Or at least that’s how it appeared. But our chemistry was undeniable, unavoidable and soon consumed us both. We fell hard and fast, and we crashed even harder leaving a wake of destruction behind us after a tragedy rocked our relationship. Leaving behind Tampa and Bryant was the hardest thing I ever did, but I had to, for my survival. But one day, when my life hangs in the balance, Bryant is the only one who could save me, and all I could do was think about every moment I regretted not spending it with him.

Arrested teenager with handcuffs on his hands

excerpt

I don’t even know where to begin, or what to say to you, so… I’m writing. When I met you, you took my breath away. I was instantly irresistibly attracted to you. Our connection was undeniable. Ultimately, though, I think it was all too much too fast. We loved each other too deeply, and that was our downfall. We never took the chance to work at our friendship and communication. We avoided the serious talks, too excited with the moment. Hell, that’s how Angelica was created in the first place, a lust-filled moment where neither of us were thinking about the consequences of our actions. If we could rewind time, I would do it differently. As much as I loved you, it was too fast. Thinking back, maybe you saying I was too young had been spot on. I know you want to talk about that day. I’m so angry with you for attempting to smother my dreams to go to college. I wanted to be a role model for to our daughter, too. You completed school. I knew I’d have to alter my course schedule and do some online or night courses to stay home with her. But you decided that wasn’t enough and got the job here without even talking to me. You made decisions for us by yourself.

Stay With Me by Megan Smith-New Release Blitz








SYNOPSIS:


Eli Sabatino, determined to make a name for himself amid Seaside, New Jersey’s nightlife, has laid out the perfect plan for success. But that plan didn’t include Layla, the hopeful bartender who walked in for an interview. He knows, as an employee, this blonde bombshell is off-limits but he can’t fight the undeniable force of attraction that pulls him toward her.


Layla Del Duca has the weight of the world on her shoulders. With a full course load, a boyfriend, a sister to take care of, and an alcoholic mother, she needs to regain control of her life. Her job at Fierce is priority number one. But a complication she didn’t expect looms behind the eyes of Eli, her handsome new boss.



Emotions collide full force and they can no longer turn a blind eye to what their hearts are telling them.


But, can their passion survive when Eli can no longer promise the one thing Layla asks of him? Will everything change? Will he stay?



PURCHASE LINKS:












EXCERPT:


The barista hands me my coffee. I stuff the receipt in my pocket walking out but stopping short when I get a better look at the dad and his daughter.
It’s Eli.
Eli and his daughter.
Eli. Has. A. Kid.
I duck back into the coffee shop trying to figure out a way to get around him without being seen. I take a seat at an empty table that gives me a little view of Eli. My heart is beating so fast and I’m shaking. Holy shit, I can’t believe he has a kid. How did he not tell me this? Did I miss the pictures of her in his office? How come she’s never come in for a visit before opening?
All of these questions are swirling around in my head when I see a tall, beautiful brunette walk out of Victoria’s Secret and right over to where Eli is with his daughter. I stop breathing and my vision blurs as she places a hand on Eli’s shoulder and leans in to kiss the little girl’s cheek.
A chair slides across the tile floor startling me. I grab my coffee, stand up and look around trying to figure out which way is the fastest to get outside, to get away from this train wreck. I realize there are no exits nearby, only a bathroom so that’s where I head.
I take a sip of my coffee and toss the rest in the trash…not even drinking that will help ward off the headache now.
Stepping out of the coffee shop I keep my head down until I turn the corner where I’m safe, only I’m not.
Oomph. Firm hands grasping my upper arms keep me steady. My cheek rests against a hard toned chest. The aroma of a crisp sea breeze with a hint of woodsy essence invades my senses and makes my world tilt.
My heart rate picks up a beat and I try to quickly recover by taking a few steps back. “I’m sorry.” I say before looking up.
The guy chuckles and it’s like a bucket of cold water that washes over me. I know that sound and it’s the last person I wanted to run into right now. It’s the person I was running from.
“What are you doing?” He asks.
I roll my eyes while adjusting the strap on my purse. “Shopping, what else do you do at a mall, Eli?”
“By yourself?”
I huff annoyed that he would think I can’t shop by myself. “Yeah.”
“Where’s Brian?” When his name rolls off his tongue I cringe.
“Where’s your girlfriend?” Yeah, jerk, I saw her and your daughter.
Eli smirks and I want to punch him in the face. “I don’t have one.”
“Then who’s that?” I say nodding towards the pretty girl with her daughter who looks to be about Fallon’s age.
“Jealous?”
I glare, getting more and more pissed off that he’s not claiming them. “Nope.”
“Then why does it matter who that is?”
“It doesn’t.”
He smiles a cocky smile. “I’ll tell you on one condition.”
“What’s that?”
He takes a small step towards me and leans down to whisper in my ear. “Go out to dinner with me again tonight.”
I push on his hard stomach. “No.”
Eli laughs. “Why not? It’s just friends having dinner.”
“Because.” I can’t think of a reason to say no but I know that I should.
Eli takes a step closer and I take a step back. “There has to be a reason, Layla.” He takes another step towards me and my back hits the wall. He’s got me cornered and his girlfriend and daughter are right there. This is so fucked up. “Are you afraid of what might happen?”
I swallow hard. “No.”
He brings his mouth right to my ear and whispers, “Are you afraid of me or what will happen when you’re with me?”
A shiver racks my body as his warm breath hits my ear. He’s so cocky but in a sexy sort of way.
Eli kisses the lobe of my ear. “Which is it, Layla?”
I can’t speak. I can barely hold myself up against the wall. He bites down on my ear and I whimper. Breathing is optional at this point.
Why is he doing this? He just kissed my fucking ear, in the mall, in broad daylight, and I’m like a deer caught in headlights right now.
“I’ll pick you up at seven. Wear something nice.”
And then he’s gone leaving me speechless and utterly breathless.

What the hell just happened?

Excerpt from Twisted Together (MITD, #3)

Desire unfurled faster and faster in my belly.

Q frowned, impossibly making him more roguish and handsome. “Tess…? How do you feel?”

How did I feel? Amazing. Lusty. Powerful. Consumed.

I stretched again, arching my back as water lapped around my body. I wanted to moan with how good I felt. I’d never been so warm or contended or horny.

My eyes snapped to Q’s. Him. I had to have him.

“You’re so beautiful,” I murmured. Q froze, his eyes searching mine. Slowly, his lips turned up into half a smile.

I pressed my thighs together. I couldn’t stop my body from overheating and needing. I’d been cursed or charmed—some sort of potion lived inside. I had no other explanation for how much I needed him.

I laughed, throwing myself headfirst into whatever spell I was trapped in. My voice fell from my mouth, tinkling and chiming like a bell. Was that truly me? I sounded magical. I sounded like a princess straight from a storybook.

Who was I? Sleeping Beauty who’d been woken by her prince?

My eyes locked onto Q’s. No. I was the one who’d fallen head over heels for a beast who spoke in foreign tongues.

Tongue.

A flush of heat and wetness built between my legs. I would give anything to have his tongue on me. I wanted his head between my thighs. I wanted his fingers clawing at my hips. I wanted to be used, bruised, adored.

Q cocked his head, chuckling under his breath. “I think Franco miscalculated the dose.”

I shook my head. I didn’t understand. All I understood was his voice had the power to make me come. The deep tenor vibrated through my heart, sending tiny orgasms exploding in my veins.

I needed to be touched. I needed to be kissed.
