***Cover Re-Reveal ***Pulled by A.L. Jackson

Reactions: 
 


Melanie Winters and Daniel Montgomery shared a love most only dream of, a love they believed bonded them together for life. When their world is shattered by the tragic loss of their daughter, overwhelming grief and misguided guilt distorts the truth, and their relationship ends in uncertainty and unanswered questions. For nine years, they drift through life, each unable to forget the one who holds the strings to their heart. In an attempt to escape the pain of her past, Melanie finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, while Daniel loses himself in a career that means nothing without Melanie by his side. Now, when their lives again intersect, neither can deny the connection they felt so long ago. But will the power that drew them together be enough to heal the wounds from their past, and will they have the courage to overcome the insecurities and fears that threaten to keep them apart? Pulled is a story of attraction and separation, of destiny and duty, of a love so strong it refuses to give up even when all others have. 


"Okay, this one did it for me in a big way. I'm an angst-lover. And by that I mean, I'm a Thoughtless, Beautiful Disaster, Love Unscripted, Slammed, Fifty Shades of Everything, kind of reader. But there's gotta be an HEA. And not a half-done HEA but a real yeah-this-story-has-been-agonizing-but-look-it-was-all-worth-it HEA. So, that said, I earnestly recommend this book. If you're like me, you'll like this. Enjoy!" LitJunkie

Excerpt

I saw his arm raised from the corner of my eye. I leaned forward to get out of the way of his flailing hand. I glanced back at him.

“Sorry,” he mumbled. I was rendered mute.

First thing I saw was his shirt riding up over his hips, revealing his perfectly toned skin. I leaned forward and craned my neck down, trying to catch a glimpse of his abs, when a low rumble emitted from his mouth, making me whip fully around. My face lit up on fire.

“You like what you see, Sunshine?” His voice took me off guard. The low rumble sounded like he had just woken up from a night of heavy sleeping. It was sexy and daring and dark.

“Not really,” I said, trying to mask my instant attraction to him. His eyes captured me when I looked up at him. They were deep gray, almost like a storm cloud rolling with the wind. His light brownish-blond hair complimented his tanned skin, making his appearance even more appealing.

At the tip of his hoodie, black lines curved along his collar bone, hinting at a larger tattoo somewhere beneath his shirt. I tried to focus elsewhere, but this guy was fucking perfection. His thick bottom lip, his nose that was a little crooked at the bridge. He had a fucking dimple!

“Luke,” he said. He smirked, showing off his dimple as if daring me to lick it. Strangely enough, he had on khaki pants, tailored so well they looked professional. The khaki and hoodie combo was bizarre, and the difference in top and bottom was not lost on me.

“Excuse me?” I asked back, remembering that he spoke, the fog dissipating, replaced with confusion.

“My name is Luke.” His voice was light, not condescending or rude like I would’ve thought it to be. I frowned, glared, and then turned around in my seat without uttering a single word. He was being nice?




My Review

For The Love of Ash is the story of Maggie and Luke. Two people who are beholden to their families even as they trying to figure out where each of their own lives are headed. As they both navigate a life that they didn't anticipate, they struggle to find their direction and are left to wonder if there will be a place in their own lives for each other.

Maggie is a college student and now legal guardian to her brother. After their parents died, Maggie took responsibility for him even though that meant getting behind in school and having to scrap to get by. Not only does she have to worry about bills and her own well being, she now has to worry about her brother who is finding the transition difficult.

Luke decided to finally start making choices for his life that don't necessarily line up with what his parents expect of him. But the reality of his siblings home life makes it impossible for him to start his own life the way to truly wants to. So even though he is a school teacher, something his parents don't approve of, he still lives at home so that he can help watch over his family.

Maggie and Luke first meet in a college class they share, but soon realize that they share more in common than that: Maggie's brother. Luke is his teacher. When Maggie's carefully constructed world starts to intersect, she finds herself at a loss. She's not sure how to or even if she wants to keep Luke out even if she knows that she isn't looking for a relationship. Luke feels a strong pull to Maggie and tries to keep his distance, but time determines that he may not be able to stop himself from falling for her.

With lots of push and pull, Maggie and Luke's story kept me turning the pages. I loved their dynamic especially when all their siblings were added to the mix. Both had demons they were fighting but when they finally let go, it was a beautiful sight.

What Others Are Saying About Taylor Lavati


"One for readers at the older end of the 'young adult' spectrum, The Thousand Year Curse is clearly the work of a gifted young writer. The plot and the basic premise have already been spelled out by other reviewers but what struck me most about the book was the deft and surprisingly mature touch of the author." Jay G

"I fell in love with Taylor's writing when I read the first book in her Curse Books. When I opened this book I wasn't positive what would be waiting on the other side for me, but I was certain it would be a reading adventure. Taylor didn't disappoint." Bestselling author Jesse Kimmel-Freeman

ABOUT THE AUTHORS: 

Marie James, full-time working mother of two boys and wife of 11 years. I've spent almost my entire lifetime living in central Texas, with only short stays in South Carolina, Alabama, and Florida. I've always wanted to write novels and just recently had the gumption to sit down and start one. My passions include reading everything under the sun and sewing.

Psychosis is the 5th book I've released with another release planned in January of 2016. This FanFiction started off as just a simple idea and has turned into an amazing way to help a little girl who's battling cancer! Matthew has been gracious enough to allow us to portray him in this story and have a little fun with it!

Gina Sevani was born and raised in beautiful South Carolina. She learned quickly that she had mad love for reading romance, paranormal and everything in between.

One night, as she was trying to fall asleep fictional characters popped into her head and would not leave. Day after day she was running dialogue and creating stories while trying to perform daily tasks. Those amazing characters wanted to be heard.

As time passed, she kept them at bay convinced she didn’t have the ability to be an “Author”. But late one night, she sat down at the computer, deciding to see if her characters could come to life on the pages. When she finally took a deep breath, thousands of words filled the pages. Those incredible words gave her the courage she needed. They lead to both of her novels, Beautifully Damaged and Beautifully Devoted.

***Blog Tour, Excerpt, Review & Giveaway ***Endure by S.E. Hall

Reactions: 

Title: Endure
Author: S.E. Hall
Series: The Evolve Series
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: November 24



Our vessel may have cracks and dings, tatters in its sail, and sometimes takes on water… but it still cuts through the waves with authority.

Because of its Crew – bonded for life.

Unsinkable.

Will this be our final voyage… or just the beginning of a new chapter in our lives.

****

Endure, the fourth book in the Amazon Best Selling Evolve Series by S.E. Hall, can be read following Emerge, Embrace, Entangled (novella) and Entice.

Strong sexual content – mature audiences recommended.





“Well hop to it, your holiness. I’m itching to kiss my wife!”

His enthusiasm is as humorous as it is recognizable. There’s no feeling in the world comparable—the impatience to begin the rest of your life with that one person—the only woman in the world who turns you into a blundering fool, no matter who’s watching. The need to touch her so great, you’ll babble your way through an argument, with a man of God, no matter who’s listening.

He loves her. Without reason or restriction.

Unashamedly.





What a perfect ending. I'm kind of beyond words right now. It takes a lot for me to shed tears while reading, but this ending. Gah! It was so perfect. Done exactly right. I'm a little sobby right now but in the best way possible. It's not at all sad; just nostalgic and happy with such a brilliantly done full circle moment. 

I have loved this series since I read Emerge. It was the perfect mix of NA growth, steam and angst. Then each additional book in the series added humor and emotion to an already brilliant series. Getting to know each member of The Crew in detail made for a perfectly integrated series of characters. Endure was S.E. Hall's farewell to The Crew and she did a magnificent job. 

This story started out in an unknown point of view and from then on the story kind of flowed mysteriously showing The Crew in the present until all was revealed leaving a huge smile on my face. Told in two parts, we also get to see more of The Crew and their family fall in love. The best part by far, though, was watching The Crew interact with each other. I was laughing out loud, swooning, blushing, and praying that the books wouldn't end. But, alas, it does but only in the best way. Left smiling with tears in my eyes, S.E. Hall wrote the most perfect ending for The Crew.

“Jesus Christ, Sawyer! Why is your dick out?” I screech louder than I mean to, but not a complete overreaction, seeing as how Sawyer’s semi is out and looming over Bennett like a heat-seeking missile. You know, because we didn’t already have enough going on.

“What the fuck?” Dane too asks him, head turned away from Sawyer’s junk on display.

“Dude, you gotta pee on a jellyfish sting. Everybody just stand back, I got this. I piss excellence.” Sawyer takes his chub in one hand, widens his stance and is all but urinating on Bennett when Evan has the good sense to step in.

“I’m sure you do, but put your cock away, Dr. Dumbass. It’s not a jellyfish sting. See those little quills sticking out of her foot?” Evan points. “She stepped on a Sea Urchin. No amount of your excellent piss will help. But thanks for scaring off the crowd, gives us more room to work.”
