Rosie
They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They're right.
No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking.
He is my forbidden, shiny apple.
The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth.
He is also my sister's ex-boyfriend.
One thing you should know before you judge me;
I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first.
Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance.
Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. My white knight has finally arrived. Hopefully, he isn’t too late.
Dean
They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. They’re right.
She sets my mind on fire.
All smart mouth, snarky attitude and a huge heart.
In a world where everything is dull, she shines like fucking Sirius.
Eleven years ago, fate tore us apart.
This time, I fucking dare it to try.
Getting to her is a battlefield, but man, that’s why they call me Ruckus.
Rosie LeBlanc is about to find out how hard I can fight.
And conquering her will be the sweetest victory.




  

When you think of the Hotholes, you either cringe in fear or shiver in lust. It's one or the other.

Dean is the stoner play boy. Hiding behind the misconceptions of others, he is the underestimated one of the bunch. But he is also the one who confronts Vicious the most. If you wondered before about the half baked hottie, you will soon learn nothing is as it seems.
History, the past, yesterday- whatever you feel like labeling it- is about to roll over. Dean is not waiting anymore. The past is behind him. Previous relationships don't matter. No what matters now is Baby LeBlanc. He just needs to prove it.
I loves these Hotholes in the worst way. They are rude, mean, and downright filthy but I would never turn my back on them. Loyalty, love, and friendship are the world to them. Unless of course you become a star to a certain one...
I have good and bad feelings about where this is going next. But either way, I will absolutely be waiting for it!

Have you ever started to read a series and it ticks every box everything you love in a story well for me these books are it.
Going in I was unsure how I would take to Dean, would I like him could I get past his history with Emilia and the answer is a big fat yes. So this is Dean and Rosie's story and although we know a little about Dean Rosie was a mystery. We know Rosie is sick but and I think it was a good thing we don't dwell too much on it what we do get is getting to know Rosie. Of the two sisters Rosie is my favourite because of her personality and her attitude, she's balsy and takes no prisoners. I especially loved the banter between the two, they feed off each other as you would expect with two strong charcters. Dean was a total surprise for me I wasn't sure I could fall hard for another hothole but the author made me fall and fall hard.
I can't wait to get my hands on the next one.

Holy HotHole!
I went straight into this book after reading Vicious, and it did not ease my epic book hangover, at all...In fact it made it worse! These Hotholes will steal your heart and your sanity. Everything you assume about the story is probably wrong, and it remains that way until the last few chapters. There is so much tragedy just waiting to happen, and there's nothing you can do about it! I may have caught myself shrieking at the book in specific parts...Despite the massive amount of sadness present within these pages, there is,also, a decent amount of laugh out loud moments. Dean is a total guy. The things he says will have you rolling your eyes, because you can totally picture a guy like him thinking her really pulled those words off. This couple was weird, but in a completely adorable way. The characters are addictive and they keep you constantly wanting more. This the first series, and the third book, that I have read by this author. She has cemented herself as one of my favorite authors. I might as well put her name on my bank account, because I plan on handing over my money for all her other books in the future. LOVED THIS BOOK! I will be telling everyone about this book! The cover is totally hot too!

Fantastic read!

I was so excited for this book, Dean's story, but it became so much more than that. Dean has his own demons to battle, ugly memories of the past, and the pain and anger it left behind that he does his best to keep buried. On the outside, he appears to be the party guy, the perpetually laid-back happy dude. Rosie, whom Dean has had feelings for since high school, has had to revolve her life around her progressive, genetic disease, cystic fibrosis. He parents don't really let her make her own decisions and revolve all things around her condition. Always compared to her sister, the successful healthy one, she can't every get them to understand her point of view. They guilt-trip her all the time, making her feel bad for wanting to live her own life, even in adulthood. She faces so much pressure from them that, although she misses and loves them, she avoids visiting home and all the pressure and lectures that come with it.

When Dean sees his opportunity to reconnect with Rosie, it is definitely not something Rosie is interested in. Dean is a manwhore, drunk every day, weed-smoking hot mess. She can't afford to get involved with someone like him, nor is she interested. She just let go of a relationship as it is to save her ex the heartache that her limited future will bring. How could this getting involved with Dean ever work anyway? He's a hothole through and through.

This book is packed full of so many feels. It's not quite as angsty and brutal as Vicious, but it has its own brand of longing, desperation, and breaking points. I highly recommend this series, Sinners of Saint, and really loved this book! Be sure to check out Defy, Vicious, and Ruckus, and the next book to come, Scandalous!

#NewRelease #Review #TRSoR COMPLETELY CAPTIVATED by @ADJustice1





 Meet Aaron & Christa in... 
Completely Captivated by AD Justice!


NOW AVAILABLE!

iBooks * Kobo * Nook

Amazon: US * UK







Blurb

Aaron Rivers 

Christa was the exact opposite of every woman who’d shared my bed for a night.

All I could think about was getting to know her intimately. She completely captivated me.

Then, as usual, I screwed up everything.

My life. Her life. Our love.

Now her old crush is back in town, and he set his sights on Christa. But she’s mine. I’ll be damned if he gets her.

I will win her back before he wins her over.



Christa Lanes 

Aaron breezed into my coffee shop and right into my heart.

He was gorgeous, confident, and sexy.

Out of all the women who threw themselves at him, he wanted me.

Against my better judgment, I took a chance.

Then he took our new life away.

When I was at my darkest, my lifelong friend Jared pulled me through, only to tell me he wants to take Aaron’s place.

But can I give my heart to Jared when Aaron already stole it?



Completely Captivated or completely conniving...
With a feisty narrator, a best friend who doubles as a pitbull, and two men vying for her hand, this book will keep you captivated. But the question is who will take the prize?
I cried in the first few pages and then I cried again. By third time I cried, I declared AD Justice evil for all of Facebook to see. I want everyone to know that the feels in this book are catching. Warning for all those hopeless romantics out there- Be wary. Your heart will be bruised. Your eyes will water. Your mind will be made up.
I have decided to hash tag the two parties vying for dear Christa. From the moment forth they will be know as....(trumpet sounds)
#TeamAaronTheIdiot
#TeamJaredTheArrogant
Because clearly your an idiot or arrogant if you don't realize what you have when you have Christa in your life. Now I'm not saying she's perfect because no one is...but both men realizes their own faulty decisions.
Now they are in a battle to prove they are the right one, or are they barking up the wrong tree...
Push comes to shove...Sh!t or get off the pot...
Christa needs to decide who/what she wants and where to go from here.
I hope this turns into a series because these feisty, fiery ladies are entertaining. Plus the twins...yeah, I said twins. 😉 Leave that to tickle your imagination and captivate your mind...

Excerpt

The moonlight shone directly through her bedroom window, casting its silvery light across her naked body. Her eyes glistened with unshed tears that she quickly blinked back. My hands reached out to her and cupped her face to kiss her deeply. I tasted the faint sweetness of alcohol. With my intensity increased, I poured every bit of my love into the kiss, willing her to feel it and take her fill of it. I gently pushed on her shoulders, silently instructing her to sit, and then I helped her move up to the head of the bed. 

I started at her feet, kissing, licking, sucking, and nipping my way up and down each leg. I took my time loving her, worshiping her entire body, and pouring my whole heart into her. Then I worked my way back up her leg, stopping momentarily at her core to meet her gaze. My chest clenched at her expression. It was a mixture of the worst pain, the purest bliss, and the deepest love I’d ever seen. That expression would haunt me—later. I’d berate myself for causing her so much pain and confusion, but for as long as she’d let me stay, my sole focus was to make her feel better.

I dipped my head and sucked her clit into my mouth. She gasped and grasped my hair in her fingers. Intermittently, I sucked on it lightly then gently ran my tongue over, under, and around it repeatedly. I moved slowly at first, savoring her natural flavor and every sound of approval she made. The intensity inside her was building to massive levels. She was so close but not quite there yet—but she would be there many times before I was done.

“I fucking love how you taste. And the sounds you make. The way your tiny fists pull my hair just before you come. Your breathy voice when you scream my name.” Her body melted under my touch, my words only adding to her need for more.

I increased the suction on her clit then scraped my teeth across it. Her hips bucked upward involuntarily. Her grip on my hair increased, slightly tugging on it and pulling me closer to her at the same time. Her hungry moans were sexy enough to push me over the edge before she even touched me, but I retrained my focus on her pleasure.

I wrapped my arms under and around her legs and pulled her core to my mouth, and I hungrily lapped her up. After a quick dart of my tongue in and out of her pussy before rolling it inside her, she almost sat straight up from the intensity. When she fell back against the pillows, I continued assaulting all her senses. My hot, wet tongue found her nub once again before my lips closed around it and my finger thrust into her waiting entrance.

As I pushed it in, her moans became louder and her grip became tighter. I deliberately moved my finger in and out of her at a leisurely pace. The need to see her almost matched my need to have her, so I raised my eyes to watch her. Her neck was arched back, her eyes welded shut, and her mouth was agape, with her sexy moans involuntarily escaping at my ministrations. With an added second finger filling and stretching her, I increased the pressure and crooked them to catch the spot that sent her over the edge.

“Aaron,” she screamed, and it was the sweetest music.

I pressed on until she rode the last wave of her orgasm and soaked my hand. When I pulled my fingers out of her, she opened her eyes in time to see me put them in my mouth and lick her essence off them. Her lips parted and her eyes widened. The pulse in her neck jumped in time with her pounding heart. She tried to pull me to her, but I gently nudged her back down, silently shaking my head side to side.

Her responding grumble made me smile against her skin as I continued licking, nipping, and sucking my way up her stomach and ribs until I reached her breasts. The stubble of my unshaven jaw rubbed against her soft skin, leaving light red abrasions like they were my own personal branding iron. My possessive side appreciated the fact that her skin held my mark. She was mine, after all, and I was determined to win her back. When I reached her breasts, I took one into my mouth, sucking and biting on her nipple while my hand kneaded her other breast. My thumb and middle finger closed around the taut peak of her nipple, and I continued my double assault on her. Her fingers gripped my shoulders and back, her nails dug into my skin in response to the powerful sensations.

“Aaron,” she panted.

I raised my head to meet her eyes, yet I was afraid to speak the words that were on the tip of my tongue. Afraid the words would break the spell, and she’d tell me to leave. That she’d realize this wasn’t just a dream she’d later wake up from and instantly regret her middle-of-the-night phone call. 

“Aaron, if you don’t take me now, I will leave and find someone else who will!”

Her words struck a chord in the hidden chasms of my mind. I knew her declaration was part bluff and all frustration, but that very thought had tormented me countless times every night. The thought spurred me to speak my mind, my response leaving no room for discussion or argument.

“The. Hell. You. Will. You are mine, Christa. For better or for worse. Till death do us part. And it’ll be over my dead fucking body that any other man touches you–or it’ll be his fucking death.” I meant every word of it.

Her eyes widened in surprise, studying my face and partly losing the glazed look of desire. I sensed my fear was about to come true—she was on the verge of realizing our rendezvous was a huge mistake and making me leave. So I decided to finish what she asked me to start. I aligned the head of my cock at the entrance of her wet core then slowly pushed into her, giving her body time to adjust to my size.

Once I’d pushed in to the hilt, burying myself fully inside her, I curled my hips and thrust slightly harder into her. I straightened my arms and looked directly into her eyes, holding hers captive. The glazed look returned to her eyes, and her hands moved to my chest, gripping, holding, and stroking me as I thrust into her harder and harder.

When she closed her eyes, I immediately issued an order. “Open your eyes and look at me. See me, Christa. You were made for me and only me. You are like a finely tuned violin, custom-made to be played only by my hands. Your body wraps around and fits me perfectly. I know every sound you make, when your breathing changes, and only I can give you what your body craves. I am the only man who can answer its call. You. Belong. To. Me. And I belong to you.” I kept my voice low and let it flow across the air between us. Her inner walls quivered and squeezed me as her body shuddered at my words. 

I pulled her legs up, wrapped my arms behind her knees, and increased the angle and depth of my penetration. Christa grasped at the sheets, writhing beneath me in sheer ecstasy. Harder and harder, I thrust into her over and over until her orgasm completely took her over the edge. When she screamed out my name again, I felt her tightness squeezing around me, holding me inside her and milking me for everything I have. I gladly gave it to her, emptying myself deep inside her and groaning with complete satisfaction as I said, “You have all of me.”

Synopsis
The concluding book in Becca and Evan's story is LIVE!!!
Escaping to Credence was supposed to be Becca's shot at a new life, but some secrets refuse to stay hidden, and now that the truth is out, everything changes.
Everything.
The people she thought she could trust lied. The guy she thought cared about her kept her in the dark. And with no one to turn to, Becca finds it hard to unravel the truth. When she finally does, her past and present collide in a way no one saw coming.
The truth can hurt you ... Some dares will destroy you.


What an amazing story! I was left ragged and anxious at the end of book one, waiting to see just where this story was headed. The plot was full of twists and turns that I could not have predicted. The action and catty drama continued to surprise me and shock me as the plot thickened and the lies and secrets began to pile up. While Evan had secrets of his own, Becca's secrets and black hole of lies threatened to eat her alive. Both of them felt trapped in their different situations. The pain they both went through in pining for each other was palpable. The stress and turmoil of everything going on around them both in their lives was a physical weight I could feel bearing down on me. I really felt for them. The action toward the end was heart-stopping. I could not put this book down once I started it! I love this couple together. Evan is an amazing guy that loves with his whole heart. The way he takes on responsibility and supports his family in more ways than he should have to is inspiring. 
I highly recommend this duet (Liar, Liar and Truth or Dare) to any of my readers across all genres. I think this set is a great mix of everything and would be enjoyed by all romance loving readers 💜

 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


After the ending of book I've been desperate for this book I had so many questions that I wanted answered. There were so many twist and turns and the action doesn't let up but we get more of the story in Evan's PoV which I was so happy about because he is such an amazing young man. Becca is hurt and feeling betrayed by Evan and Scarlett and now she feels like she is totally alone again but you can tell there is more to their actions than we as the reader know. We see more of Evan's struggles his home life puts such pressure on him but the way he deals with it just made me fall in love with him more. The way he treats Becca and his little brother Eli who is the most adorable little boy that you just want to squish is truly beautiful because when he loves he loves hard. I wanted Becca to forgive them quicker but once we learned about her last I understood where she was coming from, I also liked how Evan didn't give up on her. There are twist and turns and a reveal that I didn't guess, it keeps you guessing the whole way through. The story flows naturally between all the characters and I really hope that some of the secondary characters get there own stories.This was a well written story that tied up all those loose ends.

 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The cliffhanger ending from the first book left my mind spinning, and I was immediately anxious for this book to come out. I needed the answers to so many questions, and I wanted a HEA! This book delivers all of that and so much more! It has absolutely everything you need to complete an already amazing story. Becca and Evan...omg, you guys...I cannot even put into words, how these characters made me feel. The emotions are strong, and you can really feel right along with the characters. I read this book cover to cover without stopping and I was constantly guessing and being surprised. The story ended exactly the way it should, and I was satisfied with the events described throughout. The characters were intense, but relatable. The story was suspenseful, and not at all predictable. I loved this story. Everyone should read this book! It has a little bit of everything. An excellent read for any type of reader. I would give it more stars if that were an option.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
