Today’s the day I click that publish button!!! Wish me luck!!!
You’ve asked for more of Edwin and Abigail and, in light of Twist & Turn set for release on August 1, 2013, here’s a little taste of what you’ll get…
“I pissed you off?” he said, smirking.
I slapped him playfully. “Eddie. You don’t need to jeopardize everything you worked so hard for. That’s all I’m saying.”
“You’re avoiding the question. Admit it.”
“I admit that men drive me crazy; especially you. As for Cam, he’s a mature adult, he can make his own decisions. He just made the wrong one.”
Edwin laughed, a devious glimmer twinkling in his aqua blue eyes. “So you’re saying I’m more of a man than him.”
“It’s okay, you don’t have to agree with me, I know it’s true.”
I got up from the couch and shoved him as I passed. I retrieved a bottle of water from the fridge and returned to the living room, relieved that I didn’t have to be totally miserable all night alone. That’s when I found Edwin sitting in my spot. He knew how picky I was about my spot.
“Excuse me,” I scolded.
“What?” he asked, smugly.
“Don’t act like you don’t know. Get out of my seat!”
“Make me!” he taunted.
“I’ll make you alright.” I put down my water bottle and yanked on his thick-muscled arms. He didn’t budge an inch. “Edwin,” I whined. “My spot was warm. Please!” I pleaded.
He sat with his feet planted firmly on the floor and his godly arms folded over his chest. I yanked and yanked, but he didn’t move. His smiled curved even higher.
“You asked for it. Now I’m gonna have to lay the smack down on you,” I announced.
“Oh, I’m scared now.”
Having too much fun to stop, I walked behind the couch, wrapped my arms around his neck and flung myself over the top the sofa. He willingly submitted to the attack and, though I may have knocked him out of my spot, I unintentionally flattened myself beneath him.
“I see you got your place back,” he growled, softly.
I inadvertently smiled, but secretly wished it didn’t feel so good to be wanted by him.
“I’m gonna kiss you now,” he warned, as he closed his eyes. He eased closer, then fastened my lips to his with a soft and sensual caress that could only come from Edwin’s mouth. His large hands drew up my sides and cupped my bare breasts, as though he were worshiping them.
That’s when I pushed him off of me. “Eddie! What do you think you’re doing?”
“Mmm,” he moaned, as I awkwardly scrambled to get out from under him. He couldn’t wipe the wide grin from his face.
“Fine! You can have my spot!” I snapped.
He laughed, low and rough, and slid aside. “You can have it. I already got what I wanted.”

Check out this review of Twisted on ReadfulThings blog by clicking the following link: Twisted By Christa Simpson. 🙂
Summary: Mac’s house is under renovation and so he’s staying at a quaint cabin for a few weeks until the work is complete. Little does he know that Hannah also booked the luxury cabin for that time. He seems to have serious trust issues and thinks she’s some kind of spy or assassin and in turn holds her captive on her two week vacation.
Though their relationship starts out with a gun to her head, Hannah seemed to be a rather willing victim and if you knew what this guy looked like, so would you. He is such a sexy bad ass that you can’t help but like him. (more…)
Holy crap guys, 99 people have added Twisted onto their Goodreads shelves!! One more makes 100. Can you help a sista out? 😉
Today marks the end of my 30 days since self-publishing my debut novel in The Twisted Trilogy and man am I floored by the response. 😀
Sure, there are mixed reviews, and I can handle that… because there are also some very awesome ones. I didn’t expect to put out a best-seller on my first try, but I also didn’t expect to sell this many copies in one month’s time either!! (more…)
Here’s part two of my book review of the PRIMAL novel, which is review of the third and fourth novellas therein by Lora Leigh and Jory Strong. For these two alone I give 5 stars!! *****
3. ANGEL-CLAIMED by Jory Strong.
I got right into this story the second I started reading it. Jory Strong made it easy to understand the world they were living in and developed the world around you as you got to know the characters.
Sajia was a djinn and blood slave to a predominant vampire family. She was living every day like it could be her last, because it could be.
Addai, a dark angel, had been searching for her for over a thousand years and finally learns that they will be reunited soon. When Addai, white wings and all, insists to Sajia that she was his wife in a previous life and he’d done everything in his power to get her back, she can’t help but feel some inexplicable bond that they share.
Though she doesn’t remember their life together, she learns that he is no stranger, since he continually shares his memories of them making love, which usually involved her submissing. She initially refuses to let him dominate her, until she can’t fight the urge to submit to him. When she finally gives in to his desirous demands -and lets him tie her up– it means so much more than super-hot domination. It means she trusts him. (more…)
This is my book review of PRIMAL, a novel wherein four authors shared their primitive-desire novellas. I’ve reviewed the first two stories here. I’ve given them a combined rating of 4 stars. ****
1. Bleeding Heart by Michelle Rowen.
The collection started with this vampire story about a human woman who was injected with a serum thanks to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Her blood becomes infected and without a cure she’ll surely die. The short of it is, a bounty hunter-type, who kills vampires, but is part vampire himself, takes her with him to a research lab to see if this scientist can help her. The scientist is “mad” and turns on them, yada yada yada. (more…)
This is a historical romantic suspense novel by Amanda Quick, the final book in a three-part series, about Lavinia Lake and Tobias March, occasional business partners and sometimes lovers.
I wish I could give it a five, but it just wouldn’t be fair. I would have to say the first two books in the series were more to my liking. I actually preferred the bantering between Lavinia and Tobias and hoped for a little more of it in book three. It didn’t necessarily live up to my expectations in that department. I also hoped, since the book is called “Late for the Wedding“, that there would actually be a wedding at the end. Not the case. Kind of disappointing. (more…)
This was my first review on Goodreads and so I’m excited to say that I tried a new to me author on for size and loved her.
After my sister insisted how much I would enjoy a Maya Banks romance, I finally gave in and read this story. I was unsure whether starting at the final book of the series was a smart idea, but I loved it and I’m not sure that I would have felt the same after reading the first three in the series.
Warning: There are spoilers at the end of this post. Unforgettable quotes that I wanted to share. 🙂
So basically the story went as follows: Boy meets girl. Boy wants girl. Boy tells girl he wants to screw her – one night only – and of course girl agrees (apparently he’s incredibly sexy and rich). Boy takes girl to his mansion for a night of amazingly hot sex. All night. And it was all good until she gets knocked up. That’s where the story turns and my heart hurt from there on out.
I must say my heart truly ached for like 95% of this story. As soon as their night of passion ended, it was a continual downward spiral, inching back up numerous times, only to force you farther down the spiral. I wanted to pay attention to the POV of the characters and the quality of writing, which I must say was very good, but I couldn’t stay focused on that because I was too drawn in to the storyline. I read this story in one night. I stayed up into the early wee hours to finish it because I couldn’t stop without knowing what was going to happen. (more…)
