Kara's Review

5 Stars

Fallen Crest Home is the sixth book in the Fallen Crest High series. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the Fallen Crest series, but I see the appeal of these characters. They are likable, funny, fiercely loyal and loving. Tijan delivers the emotion in this installment with Sam and Mason back home. They are joined by Logan, Taylor, Nate and Matteo. I loved the interactions between characters. Not knowing all the background and history, I was intrigued by them, but never lost at all. Mason and Sam have an unbreakable bond. He’d do anything for her and she in return. Even when things seem copacetic they know there’s danger lurking around the corner. Are there new enemies or old ones? Who can they trust in Fallen Crest? I enjoyed this story! I love Logan and his sense of humor, Mason a Samantha have that perfect love.

 

This. Him. Us.

This would always be where life made sense.

FALLEN CREST UNIVERSITY

BOOK 5

PROLOGUE

MASON

He was coming right, so I shifted, blocked his punch, and rounded with my own. My fist hit the side of his eye, and he doubled over. There was a crowd around us, but I couldn’t hear them. They didn’t exist to me. It was this guy. This was Sebastian’s crowd. They wanted a fight. They got one, and this lackey would be the third guy I took down. It was a matter of moments before he gave in. He bent over, drawing in ragged breaths, and his hand raised to his head. He was checking out how much blood was there, and then the yells started to filter through my haze.

Get up!”

“Let’s go!”

They’d been screaming like that for the last hour. It never mattered. Each one of Sebastian’s guys would get up, and I’d hit them back down. When one was knocked out, another would step in, and I’d fight him like the others—quick, painful, and without thought.

I hadn’t fought in so long, but this felt good, finally being able to release the demons. Sebastian wanted to destroy my friendship with Nate. That failed. Nate left their fraternity instead, and they went after me. Their hit-and-run got Marissa instead. She wasn’t innocent in some things, but she was an innocent of this war. And Sebastian won that battle.

He got to Marissa.

I didn’t know what was promised or what was threatened, but she testified that she didn’t remember anyone else being there. It was only me, her, and the speeding truck that came out of nowhere. The security cameras went missing. The only evidence I had on Sebastian was Nate’s recording where he admitted that they didn’t mean to hit the girl, but it wasn’t enough to condemn their futures. The university didn’t want a criminal case, so the fraternity was banned. Each individual member could attend Cain University, but not within their fraternity. That was it, though.

My revenge was simple. I burnt their house down.

They tried to get me expelled, but no evidence was found. They couldn’t pin that on me. Months passed in tension. I knew they were going to fight back, but I was given a break—until tonight.

They were waiting for me after my last training session.

A third one came from the left at me. I bent down, swept an arm out, hooking him around the legs. I tossed him over my back, flipping him in the air. His back hit the ground, and he stared up at me, blinking in shock. I didn’t give him time to think. My leg was up, and I brought it down. He twisted to the side, but I still clipped him in the head. It was enough to make him slow his attack. He rolled to the side and lay there, shaking his head clear.

A fourth was charging toward me.

I stood my ground, caught him by grabbing a fistful of his shirt, and hit him from the other side. My arm thrust out in a straight punch, connecting with him in the mouth. He stumbled backward, but a friend caught him and helped him to the background. There were more, all standing back and waiting their turn.

I took in a deep breath, my chest was tight, and my breathing labored.

This could go on forever. If they kept coming at me, they’d win. They’d wear me down. Some were surprised. Some wary. Others were just glaring with their hands closed in fists by their sides.

They were waiting for their leader, and then he came forward.

Park Sebastian.

He was clapping with an ugly smirk on his face and a gleam in his eyes. Stopping just outside of my reach, he stopped clapping. He dropped the smirk and lowered his eyes, locking his gaze on me as if he were going to charge. “Aren’t you full of surprises?”

With the back of my hand, I wiped the blood from my mouth. Sebastian watched the motion and followed as I wiped it off on my pants.

He added, “I wasn’t aware that you could fight.”

I narrowed my eyes. He’d already tried to hit me with a car, knowing it would injure me and I’d be off the team. I could’ve been off the team permanently. No more football for me. No professional career either.

I tilted my head to the side. What was he doing?

“You took my house.” He wagged a finger at me. “You took it in more ways than one. Although, in a way, you saved the university from rebuilding it.”

“They did rebuild it.”

“It’s a fucking daycare now.”

There was the Park Sebastian I knew. The cool and calm one wasn’t the right one. I wanted to face the real one. I wanted him front and center.

“What are you doing, Sebastian?”

He nodded once, clipping his head up and down to himself. “I know what you’re thinking. We could keep fighting, exhausting you, and we’d eventually win. We could do whatever we wanted to you.” He pointed to my leg. “Maybe break that.” He pointed to my arm. “Or tear the tendons in those so you can’t catch a ball anymore.” His finger moved up and down, from my head to my toes. “Or we could try it all over again. Run a truck over you, and you’d be done for. There’d be no going back, but here’s my dilemma. The university would have to step in, and at some point, they’d let the law come with them. That’s the dilemma.”

He stepped back, his hands resting on his hips. “I don’t want to go to prison because of you. Checkmate. You won. The fraternity is gone, literally in all ways. We’re not allowed to function as a house of brothers anymore, but in our hearts, we still are. The other chapters know that, so even though we’re not officially recognized as fraternity brothers, we still are. Outside of the university, outside of all the universities, we’re still brothers.” He tapped where his heart was. “You couldn’t take this from us, but this is what I’m going to take from you.”

Time slowed.

I knew. I’d always known.

Sam was sent to Boston. I wanted her to get away from Cain University, away from me, and even away from Logan in Fallen Crest. In some way of thinking, I’d thought that the farther away she was, the safer she would be.

His lips began to form her name, and I knew all that was for nothing. He was still going after her, and she would be at Cain University next year, coming right into the lion’s den. I was delivering her to him.

His words were low and gravelly. I heard them through my alarm. A storm was going off in me, but his words penetrated me as he said, “I’m going to take your heart away.”

No.

That damn smirk coming back to him, he added, “And you won’t be able to stop me because she’s not going to let you. That’s going to be the best thing about it. You won’t be able to do a damn thing about it, and the way I’m going to do it, she’ll come right to me. I’m going to savor that day when she walks from you to me, and after I’ve taken your heart out, I’m going to take hers. I’m going to hurt her in a way so that she’ll never be the same. I’m going to rip her soul from her body.”

I snapped. One step took me to him, and before he realized what I was doing, I grabbed him and threw him down. I was on him, raining punch after punch, until his guys tore me from his body. They had to lift me off him, and even then, I kept going back for more.

I wanted to rip his insides out, but as I was trying to hurt him, I knew it wouldn’t matter.

He was going after Sam.

Before That Night
 
Before that night,
Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young
siblings in a beat-up minivan she’d bought with her first semester’s tuition
refund–the only money her addict mother hadn’t taken off with when she’d
abandoned them nearly two years ago.
Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check
out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman
he’d met just months prior when she’d first served him the city’s worst diner
coffee…which he’d been drinking daily ever since.

Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she’d been fighting
hard not to fall for–her only friend in her new shadow of a life–would be in
a position to rip her family apart.

Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him
fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the
other way when it came to his job.

Then that one perfect night changed everything.

Blurb
He was as magnetic as a deadly hurricane to the shore.
 
Carson Cole was my first love. The boy I’d shared my whole self with.
 
He was the man who’d taken the other part of my soul and drowned it in the sea we’d grown up in.
 
And now he’s back. Ten years later, and the demons of our past are still haunting every breath trapped between us.
 
She was as wild as the horses who owned the beach highways we drove down.
 
Blake Sayer was the beautiful daredevil who had me wrapped around her finger from the time we were seven.
 
Until a horrible accident stole every piece of joy from her life.
 
Ten years later, she’s a shell of the girl she once was, and it’s all my fault. The whispers of our history shackle her to the island I left behind.
 
Just like lost years and unspoken words, love had slipped from our fingers like grains of sand. We’d barely made it out alive last time, was it even possible to reconstruct the shattered pieces of us?

4.5 Stars
Ghost in his Eyes is a second-chance standalone romance. I have read Carrie’s last few books and they have all been different from one another. Its awesome because I never know what I am going to get especially since I have this habit of not reading the synopsis. If I know the author’s work then I don’t read it until I have to write the review. Speaking of review, here we go…
Ten years. That’s how long it’s been since Blake and Carson have been in the same room. Even the same city. They were inseparable for ten years of their lives. They knew they found someone special at seven. They were each other’s first everything. Then at seventeen their lives were forever changed. They went from ten years of being attached to ten years of not speaking. Carson left with regret. Blake became a shell of the woman she once was. Isolated in her home among the wild horses. And now…he was back. Blake doesn’t want to see him. Doesn’t want the memories of their past. She doesn’t want to feel the pain. She knows what he wants. To talk about the past. To confront the demons. She wants nothing to do with it. But Carson is determined to show Blake that he also still cares about her. That he has his own demons to face. That if they talked then maybe, just maybe they can fight them together.
I am a big fan of second chance romance. It just gets to me. Especially when you feel that connection between the characters. Carson and Blake have that. But, they have some big issues to work out. Blake isn’t the same person Carson fell in love with. She is still independent, beautiful, and smart but she is colder, isolated and lost her wild side. Can Carson bring out her wild side again? Will they be able to come together to move on from their past so they can move forward with their future?
Overall…It’s a wonderful story about love, second chances, family, and wild horses. The characters are very likable, fun, flirty, and special. The writing is awesome and could feel the passion Carrie had for the story.
Quotes:
“So you’re back. Fine. Just stay away from me.”
“I get it, you’re wild and I can’t tame you. But I was never trying to tame you, Blake. I simply wanted to be the one you chose to have run by your side.”
“There are no words to describe how beautiful you are. Beautiful is not even a word that should apply to you, because you are so much more.”

Excerpt

My hand cradled the back of his neck, holding him prisoner.

I didn’t want him to look away, to move away.

I wanted him inside of me.

His eyes darkened and as if reading my mind, he moved back to pull his pants off. After grabbing a condom, and pulling it on, he came back and settled between my legs.

My arms went back around him, like returning to their home.

“Sam,” he murmured, tracing a finger down the side of my face. He tucked some hair behind my ear, and then I felt his lips against mine again.

Yes. Home.

That’s what this was.

I groaned, my head falling back, and I felt his soft chuckle against my skin, but then he reached down and shifted, lifting my leg until I wound it around his waist. He dipped in, shifting, and I felt him at my entrance. He paused, then slid inside.

My eyes closed and I relished the feel of him in me.

He began moving, thrusting inside of me.

As he kept going, and he slid his hands up my arms to capture my hands, I opened my eyes. We were staring back at each other, watching each other. I could feel him reaching inside of me, searching, claiming me. Everything in my body yearned for him, yearned for more. I wanted more. I needed more.

The second he touched me, everything blared alive. I was awakened. Always.

In and out. Mason kept thrusting.

My fingers clamped down over his, sinking deep as his pace quickened.

“Mason,” I gasped. Weak. His onslaught kept going, harder, faster. “I love you.”

He groaned, climaxing, and his body clenched as he thrust into me a last time. It sent me hurdling over the edge, and I wrapped both arms around his neck, hanging on.

A moment later, he brushed a soft kiss on my forehead before he slipped out.

I still lay beneath him.

I didn’t want to move.

I didn’t want him to move, and eventually, we slept like that.

I woke later, but I was still in his arms. He was curled up behind me, and I went back to sleep again. All the doubts and questions would be there tomorrow.

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER OF UGLY AND MISTRUST
**Write something worth reading**I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.

Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.My last three books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.

My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.

Excerpt
I had no time to stop and think.
I had to fight.
I had to hurt.
I had to protect.
Feeling someone behind me, I let loose with the bat, a scream erupting from my throat. Someone caught the bat and wrapped an arm around my waist. I tried kicking out. He dodged my feet and said hurriedly in my ear, “Damn, Strattan. It’s me, Channing. Stop!”
Channing.
He was friendly.
Stop.
I sagged in his arms, looking for Mason. Where was he? He was circling a guy, still fighting.
I started forward, but Channing caught my arm. “Whoa. Chill.”
I growled as I yanked my hand free and started forward again, but Channing grabbed my arm once more.
He got in front of me, holding his other hand up. “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Look. He’s fine. We’re here. He’s got that. Look. Look, Sam.”
My senses began to calm. The black around my eyesight faded. I could see more normally, and the buzzing in my ears subsided. I gulped for breath, tasting salt and dust in my mouth.
Channing was right. Mason’s eyes were deadly, but alert, his mouth set in a flat line. His shoulders were tense, but he looked in control.

Dual Cover Reveal – Sexy Motherpucker & Puck Alcoholic, Lili Valente

Blurb
 
When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth—in
front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl—you would think I’d
hit rock bottom.
 
WRONG.
 
Let’s back this up a sec…
 
Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the
Badger’s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend…until we
cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday
morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan
wanted someone who was “stepmom” material.
 
A.K.A, not me, apparently.
 
The problem? I’m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when
he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former
in-laws, I say yes. We’re still friends, after all, and friends don’t let
friends fake it alone.
 
***
 
Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking
in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws’ house, or in a
hotel room where we’re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed.
 
I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling
with this too wild, too young, too impulsive red head. So what if she’s
beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I’ve ever known?
 
I don’t want to fall in love. I really don’t. The whole “pretend
girlfriend” thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time.
 
But when it comes to Laura?
 

Hell,
maybe I’m just not cut out for faking it.

I hate my new roommate.
 
And I want to do dirty, delicious things to her in that swing she
installed that we both know has nothing to
do with aerial yoga.
 
Neither of which is good, considering Diana Daniels is my NHL team
captain’s little sister, and he will
break my face if I’m not a perfect gentleman.
 
I try to be. Really, I do. But when Diana runs screaming down the
hall wearing nothing but a damp washcloth, all my gentlemanly intentions go out
the window. She’s got all sorts of Jedi mind tricks to make a man obsessed with
getting her into bed, and I’m not gonna lie—I fall for every single one of
them.  
 
Especially the one where she warns me not to fall for her.
 
***
 
Everyone knows that banging your new roomie is a bad idea. And if
it wasn’t for his sister’s stupid pet pig, Wanda, chasing me out of the
bathroom mid-shower, Tanner Nowicki and I might still be able to pretend we
hate each other.
 
But that pig totally has it out for me, and before I can warn
Tanner that I don’t do relationships—or hockey players or my brother’s friends,
for that matter—he’s doing me.
Against the wall. And in his bed. And in my bed. And on a pinball machine where
we get an all time high score.
 
And it’s so incredible that I start to forget that I’m the
unluckiest woman alive when it comes to relationships. And pigs. And aerial
yoga. And worst of all, love.
 
But
hey, it’s not like I didn’t warn him…

Author Bio
 
Lili Valente has slept under the stars in Greece,
eaten dinner at midnight with French men who couldn’t be trusted to keep their
mouths on their food, and walked alone through Munich’s red light district
after dark and lived to tell the tale. 
These days you can find her writing in a tent
beside the sea, drinking coconut water and thinking delightfully dirty
thoughts.

He was as magnetic as a deadly hurricane to the shore.
Carson Cole was my first love. The boy I’d shared my whole self with.
He was the man who’d taken the other part of my soul and drowned it in the sea we’d grown up in.
And now he’s back. Ten years later, and the demons of our past are still haunting every breath trapped between us.
She was as wild as the horses who owned the beach highways we drove down.
Blake Sayer was the beautiful daredevil who had me wrapped around her finger from the time we were seven.
Until a horrible accident stole every piece of joy from her life.
Ten years later, she’s a shell of the girl she once was, and it’s all my fault. The whispers of our history shackle her to the island I left behind.
Just like lost years and unspoken words, love had slipped from our fingers like grains of sand. We’d barely made it out alive last time, was it even possible to reconstruct the shattered pieces of us?

I have something people want. I have something they cannot take or steal. I have something they’d kill for.
The something I have, isn’t a possession, it’s more.
Much, much more.
It’s a gift.
It’s part of me.

Author Bio
NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER OF UGLY AND MISTRUST
**Write something worth reading**I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.

Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.My last three books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.

My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.

Two strangers
in Paris …
One passionate,
earth-shattering kiss.
 
He was the
artist upstairs
with the
tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.
 
He was the
devil inviting me to sin,
seducing me to
dance in the bright moonlight.
 
He was desire
and need.
 
When he touched
me, my body sang–
my soul came
alive.
 
But I belonged
to another man,
and he didn’t
want to let me go.
 
 
 
Author Bio
 
I’m a writer, a hopeless romantic, a wanderer, a dreamer, a cynic, and a believer. And, I might be a bit crazy – but who isn’t?I believe in happy endings however I know that not everyone is lucky enough to get one, but such is life. I think fine lines exist to be pushed and possibly crossed.

Love,

M.
