Excerpt:
Emily (Skipping Stones: Book 1)
Unedited



“Please tell me you’re not seeing each other.” He says as he locks eyes with me.

I swallow wrapping my arms around myself not understanding his reaction. “No we’re just hanging out, that’s all.”

I watch as his shoulders fall and then he surprises me by quickly closing the distance between us, grabbing my waist and the back of my neck. Before I can even begin to understand what’s happening his mouth is on mine and his tongue is pushing between my lips seeking my own. And for just a moment I let myself fall into the familiar warmth and comfort I’ve always found in his embrace. I surrender to his will kissing him back, his familiar taste invading my mouth and overtaking my senses. But the noise of a child hollering brings reality crashing back on me, and I push my way out of his embrace breaking the kiss.

I stand there and stare him in the eyes as so many emotions threaten to break the surface, with a trembling hand I cover my mouth as I shake my head back and forth.

“That shouldn’t have happened,” I whisper. Remembering how easy it was too lose myself in his arms.

He frowns and I can tell he’s frustrated with the whole situation as he runs his hands through his hair covering his face as he lets out a muffled scream.

“Emily…please I think…no, I mean I know I screwed up. I should have never let you go and I’m sorry."

#Poser (Hashtag Series #5) by Cambria Hebert

Title: #Poser (Hashtag Series #5) - not a standalone
Release Date: August 18, 2015
Genre: New adult college romance 

Synopsis:

Posers gonna pose

I am a man who had nothing, but found everything.

I’ll never go back to nothing ever again.

I vowed to protect her, and that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.

The pictures I stumbled upon haunt me still, the secret I shoulder is heavy.

They say secrets put distance between two people, but the truth is far more destructive than keeping it will ever be.

I won’t ever tell. She can’t ever know.

When I look in the mirror my reflection is of who I’m afraid I’ll become and not the man I am.

It makes me feel like a poser, no better than all the others pretending to be exactly who they aren’t.

How does a man keep it together when everything is unraveling right here in his hands?

I didn’t start any of this.

I never asked for it.

But it came knocking at my door.

When secrets and threats knock, I don’t hide.

I open the door.

Because the best way to take down a poser is to be one.

Sometimes life leaves a mark…
Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now.
Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.

Reality - The Arie Chronicles # 1
by Dani Hart


Audience: Young Adult  - Genre: Fantasy - Format: E-Book & Paperback - Publisher: Anchor Group - ASIN: B00ZM52PQU - Date Published: June 12, 2015
 
blurb

To be extraordinary was a fate Arie Belle had never imagined. Her days had been filled with naïve pleasures and promising love, but all that changed one tragic day when her mother was killed under mysterious circumstances, plunging Arie’s life into dark and hopeless times where her lifelong friend, River, was her only beacon of light.
After years of numbness, a beautiful stranger, Ashe, entered her world and took her soul to places it had never been, across realities trapped within the worlds of fairy tales. Could he be her savior, or would she find the strength within to be her own?
Along her journey, she quickly unraveled the secret behind her uncanny connection with nature and her mother's killer. But one mystery remained—one of scripted destiny and the pull of the dark forces of life. Could she find the answers she needed before the next full moon? Or would death claim her as it had been painted in the fate of the stars?

Summer Love by RaShelle Workman


Simone needed a miracle... She needed him. 

Twenty-year-old Simone St. James was a librarian from the tourist town of Bandon, Oregon. 
Two summers ago - before all hell broke loose - she met Sam. He was everything she ever wanted in a man: smart, funny, and gorgeous. But after eight perfect weeks he left, and she hadn't heard from him since. Until she received an email from him asking her to meet so he could explain. 
It might be another empty promise, but Simone had to see him one last time, even if it was just to say good-bye. 

Rated: PG-13 for mild language and mild sensuality.


My Review:

Nine months ago Simone had a summer fling with a guy she barely knew, now a mother to a beautiful little girl she has a date to see him again but there is more than just the baby they share together that she has to tell him..she is dying of cancer.  Sam is blown away by the news but is willing to do what it takes for her.

This was a very quick read but it was so well written that I was very sad to see it end.  The dynamic between Simone and Sam is explosive and you are absorbed into their story.  RaShelle has once again written an amazing book and I look forward to more from her!

Excerpt:
Emily (Skipping Stones: Book 1)
Unedited
“Where you at?” I hear her holler from the living room.
“Bathroom…Give me a minute and I’ll be out,” I holler back as I finish buttoning my jeans, I brush my teeth before opening the door and heading down the hallway only to stop dead in my tracks at the sight before my eyes. Tina is half standing, half squatting over my couch and has a look of pain on her face.
What. The. Hell?
I stand patiently and tilting my head to the side I silently watch as she looks like she is having an argument with herself before she finally sits down only to hiss as she squeezes her eyes tightly shut.
“Do I even want to know what’s going on with you?” I say, as I stay standing in the entrance of the living room.
“Oh girl it was horrible just fucking wrong on so many levels I don’t…I don’t even know where to begin,” she says as she shakes her head.
“How bout the beginning or at least I would think that would be a good place to begin,” I make my way over to the couch and sit down beside her.
“Ugh…well last night after you bailed on me I ran into Justin. You remember him?”



“Not really. Should I?"


“He went to school with us, last name Martin.”

“Oh yeah…I vaguely remember him.”

“Well we ended up leaving the club to go get something to eat,” when I nod she continues, “Well everything went well, really well actually. We ended up back at his place and ya know,” She shakes her head side to side as she frowns, “We were in the bedroom and he was behind me and well…,”

I lean forward and move my head slightly from side to side, “Well, what?”

“You’re gonna laugh I know you are,” she says as she winces.

“I promise not to laugh.”

“Uh-huh…we’ll see. You know how sometimes I use anal beads?”

“Yeah…why?” Not so sure I want to know anymore.
