★ One is a Promise ★


Add to Goodreads



One promise.
One forever.

One look and I knew Cole was mine. My dark rebel in leather. My powerhouse of passion, devastating smiles, and impulsiveness. When his job sends him overseas, he promises to return to me. A promise that’s destroyed in the most irrevocable way.

Two years later, an arrogant suit invades my heartbroken loneliness.

Clean-cut and stern, Trace is everything Cole wasn’t.
At first, he’s a job that will rescue my dance company. But as he intrudes on my life, our hostile relationship evolves. He knows I’m still in love with Cole, but his dedication is my undoing.

Then a catastrophic moment changes everything.

Promises resurface.
Lies entangle.
And an impossible choice shatters my world.

I love two men, and I can only have one.

★ LORI'S REVIEW ★

This was yet another book by Pam Godwin that rocked my socks off.  I not only loved this book… I lived it, I breathed it, I *felt* it.  

Ms. Godwin’s ability to capture my attention from the very first page amazes me.  But it shouldn’t.  I know going into her books, I’m going to get impeccable writing, well-developed and lovable characters, and a clever and well thought out plot line.  She did not disappoint with this one!  I was easily pulled into the pages – my heart was squeezed, thrown around, kicked around, and stomped on.  And I loved every single minute of it.

 I fell madly, deeply, head-over-heels in love with the characters – all of them.  The connection was immediate and their chemistry was off the charts, smoldering hot.  Danni is a beautiful & charming dancer who impressed me from the get go.  Also strong & sassy, which is necessary for the men in her life.  Cole & Trace…two powerful and sexy alpha book boyfriends. They’re both hot AF, yet only one can be chosen.  Impossible.  My heart is in a tug-of-war and I don’t know who will win.

This story was intoxicating, intense, and angsty – a perfect mixture for a fabulous read.  At times my heart was racing, sometimes my mouth was cussing (more than usual), and many times, my lady bits were singing & dancing.  I couldn’t get enough of this story and I savored every word until the very end.

With pages full of passion & plenty of emotion, this book will be sure to wreak havoc on your heart.  Mine was put the through the wringer and I was left with a book hangover for days.

I recommend this book to everyone who loves a well-written, nerve-racking love triangle, full of the feel-good tingles every romance novel should have.  Devilishly delicious until the very last page.  

This book makes me feel like an addict, and I can’t wait for my next fix!

5 deliciously good hearts!

★★ MICKI'S REVIEW ★★

Read this book. Seriously. Just read it.

Pam Godwin never fails to deliver. Be it her dark romances, paranormal/apocalyptic worlds or now gut wrenching love triangles, she will slowly rip your heart out with her words, and you will beg her for more! 
 "Pam, please, please...PLEASE,  give me book two!!!"

This story is so well crafted it's nearly impossible to stop reading once you start. I don't want to spoil anything, but I will say be prepared to fall in love with these characters. Hard love. I'm not talking about some little crush here. 

Also, grab the Kleenex because you will feel all the emotions like a punch to your chest. You may also want to send the kids out to play because you'll probably say, "holy shit," at least three times. If you don't, you might be dead, check your pulse.

Pam Godwin is an amazingly talented author, and I'm so glad she shares the stories that happen in that pretty, twisted little head of hers! 
Cannot wait for book two!

★ Coming Soon! ★




★ Two is a Lie ★

Release Date: July 11, 2017


Two lies.

Two men who don’t share.

I never stopped loving Cole. Not when he left me. Not when he disappeared for three years. Not when he crashed back into my life in a violent explosion of testosterone and fury.

His sudden reappearance questions everything I thought I knew, including how I came to love another man.

Trace is an intoxicating breeze of seduction over ice. My rock. My second chance at forever.

And he’s committed to annihilating the competition.

The battle that ensues wrenches me back and forth between them.

Fighting and fucking.

Resisting and submitting.

Together, they entangle me in a web of lies, rivalry, and desire that weaves as deeply as their devotion to me.

I love two men, and if I can only have one, I choose none.




★ Three is a War ★

Release Date: August 29, 2017


Three means war.

Three sides vying for forever.

Cole.

My first love.

The bad boy with the dangerous smile and passionate temper draws attention like a lit fuse on dynamite. But his dark molten eyes spark only for me.

Trace.

My second chance.

Over six feet of Norse god in a tailored suit, he calculates every move and seizes my hungry breaths with an iron fist.

Me.

The free-spirited dancer, torn between two men with no resolution in sight.

I tried leaving, staying, refusing, and surrendering.

What options do I have left?

I love two men, and I do the only thing I can. I fight.

At thirteen, I snuck a kiss. 

At sixteen, I fell in love.
At eighteen, I despised loving him. 
He lied, cheated and killed. He also protected, provided and gave me solace.

I ran the streets, doing whatever I pleased, until Shame showed up to claim me. For five years, the most notorious street gang in Boston became my family. The day I turned eighteen, I didn't want to leave. My heart belonged to Shame. I simply needed to convince him I was more than the little girl he rescued.

I promised to love him, but could he ever love me back?

Not all love was easy.
Not all love was meant to be.
And not all love could survive.

From the author of The Irreparable Series comes a story of forbidden romance. With all the angst you expect from KJ Bell, Living With Shame will bring you to your knees and have you begging for a happy ending.

★★ LORI'S REVIEW ★★

KJ Bell is back, y’all!  Living With Shame is a delicious, forbidden romance that will have you gripping your kindle tightly, all the while devouring each page until the very end.

I absolutely loved this book.  It fulfilled my expectations, and then some.  After reading the blurb, I knew it was going to rock my world. Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop... I couldn’t stop.  It's starts off with a bang and sucked me right in. The superb writing and storytelling of this author made me connect easily with the characters and fall in love with them immediately. 

Breeze is a beautiful, young girl who looks and acts much older than her 13 years.  With no mother around and because her father is an alcoholic, she’s left to fend for herself.  Often neglected, she’s able to come and go as she pleases.  And she does. And she catches the eye of one sexy, much older Bastard. 

Shame is head of the Irish Bastards, instantly attracted to Breeze the second he sees her walk into the clubhouse.  Kisses are stolen, sparks fly... and their journey begins. You should probably buckle up, because it's a thrilling one.

As I read this story, I experienced all the feels I love in a good book.  Some moments had me angry, some had me smiling, and a lot of them had me wanting to scream out in frustration. The struggles these two went through was enough to drive me mad. Angst, angst, and more angst - LOVED every second of it! I constantly thought about these characters and what was going to happen next if I wasn’t reading. 

I am not surprised with how much I loved this, because I am a huge fan of this author. I had a good feeling she was going to knock it out of the park - and she did.  If you love forbidden romance, I am confident you will enjoy this. I highly recommend it! 

"The disgrace and the loneliness, the feeling no one else could understand was my shame to bear. But not the man … my Shame … he was easy. I was his burden and he was my constant and I had loved him since I was thirteen. Living with Shame had never been easy. It had always hurt. But, of course I would forgive him. I loved him. I would always love him."

FIVE AMAZING HEARTS!

Boomerangers by Heather M. Orgeron







Title: Boomerangers
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 27, 2017


Blurb

Boomerangers [boo-muh-rang-ers] noun, informal: an adult that moves back home to live with a parent after a period of independence.

~ Spencer ~

I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I’m not having any . . . You’d think as New Orleans’ most renowned sex therapist that I’d be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue.

What can I say? I never said I could pick ’em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix ’em.

~ Cooper ~

As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father’s firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she’s lived without me.

I’ve been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I’d give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions—especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and eighteen-year commitments.

The problem is, she’s already got me by the balls . . . and I’m beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart.

 LORI'S REVIEW 

This wonderfully written RomCom had me laughing out loud. A LOT. It's hilarious, heart-warming, and sometimes panty-melting. 

Cooper is sexy & charming, and a fool for breaking Spencer's heart all those years ago. But he knows that. Spencer is a strong & sassy heroine who is raising 3 kids on her own. When these two run into each other again, the chemistry is full of sparks. But Spencer's guard is up, she won't have her heart broken by Cooper again. 

The banter in this book was very entertaining. I never knew what was going to happen next to make me smile or laugh, whether it was something funny the kids did, something hilarious Cooper or Spencer said, or something those meddling mothers did. (Loved those two!) This book is full of fun moments!

I thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted, second chance romance! The author's writing made me want to keep turning the pages until the end. I fell in love with every single character. The author did a fantastic job of making them seem real. 

This was my first book by this author, and I cannot wait to read more from her! I highly recommend this one!

5 hearts!!

Release Blitz ~ Twisted In You by Fabiola Francisco




Book: Twisted in You
Author: Fabiola Francisco
Release Date: April 13
Genre: Contemporary Romance






#TwistedInYouRelease

Synopsis

~Mikayla~

Depressed, crazy, violent, angry, suicidal. Those are the adjectives most people would use to describe me. Ironically, the one that upsets me is violent. I’m not a violent person. 

Am I depressed? Yes. Life’s a bitch, and she’s taken me for a fucking ride. 

Crazy? I wouldn’t say so, although I can see why people would describe me as such. 

Angry? Fuck yeah. I’ve got some twisted stories to explain my anger. 

Suicidal? Well, maybe this one time. And that one time is the reason I’m here, telling you my story, from room 113 of the Chasing Freedom Recovery Center. Isn’t the name fucking peachy? Sit tight folks, you’re in for a dark ride.

~Tyler~

I don’t have a problem. Drinking is something I do to relax after a long day of work, or a long day on stage. I’m not an alcoholic. I know what alcoholics are like, and that’s not me. (Not yet.) 

Regardless, they send me to Chasing Freedom. (Again). They’re determined to heal something that isn’t broken. (Liar.) And I’m stuck with Red, hearing her lose her shit and tell me off in the process. However, one look into her eyes shows me her demons. Some I am familiar with, others I can’t fathom. I know darkness, but she’s pitch black, and I want to hold the torch and lead her out.

Excerpt

I hear the heavy movement of boots, and I shudder at the thought of that darkness reentering my life. He slumps on the chair next to me. God, this can’t be happening again. I hate being here in this fucking prison, but it’s the only place I know evil can’t get to me. Now, there is the permanent memory of it sitting next to me.

“So, what poison got you locked up in here?”

I look at him blankly. “I don’t do drugs.”

“Then why the fuck are you here?” He spits at me, and I get a whiff of alcohol laced with mint on his breath.

I shrug, hoping he goes away. Hoping he takes the darkness back where it came from.

“What? You don’t talk?”

“I’m talking.” Leave me alone.

He looks over at my canvas. “That’s some warped shit.”

“Life is warped.” If he only knew how fucked up life is.

He’s an asshole brat.

“Only if you want it to be. So, you don’t have anything to share. Don’t lie. You’re in here for a reason. You look like you know some good stuff. I won’t tell anyone,” he smiles, feigning his good intentions.

“Fuck off,” I say looking at him dead in the eyes. I will not go through this again.

I catch a glimpse of his eyes, it’s hard to tell under the shadow of his cap if they’re green or hazel, but they look sad and angry. I can’t see the rest of him, besides a light beard that covers his face.

Nope, he doesn’t look like the devil, but I see the darkness that surrounds him. I try to ignore him and go back to the mindless painting I’m doing. I have no idea what is on the canvas, so I look up to see what’s so scary about it.

Shit. I never focus on what I’m painting with the brush; I move it along so no one bothers me as I get lost in my mind.

It’s him. He’s staring back at me, fury and hatred painted in his eyes, horns adorning the crown of his head and a malevolent smile plastered on his shattered face.

I drop the paintbrush quickly and stare in disbelief. How many times have I painted this? What the fuck has come out of me through that brush when I wasn’t paying attention? I stand up and throw it away. My scars begin to itch. I need something. I need a way to escape this. It’s too much for me to handle. I pierce my nails into my scars. The skin there is thinner, more breakable, fragile like me. Maybe I can gush them open and let myself bleed out of this misery.

“Mikayla, we’re not done yet. You know you can’t throw away your art. It’s part of therapy.” Here we go again with the same damn speech that painting will help me understand the reasons why I feel the way I do.

“You can take your art and shove it up your ass.” I storm out of the art room, desperately wanting to escape my own mind and memories. I thought life as an eighteen-year-old was supposed to be good. Time to be living your life, not escaping demons and living in a judgmental purgatory with other lost souls.
