Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00014]


It was always bros before hoes—except when Josephine Faulkner got involved. The saying had been obliterated for Maxwell Sheridan the moment he met her. His Josephine. She had become his everything without even trying. It’s too damn bad that Max broke her heart. Left her behind to seek redemption for his past mistakes. Life with Josie was perfect. He had found his La Vie En Rose … Or so he thought. One moment outside her apartment building changed it all. Josephine Faulkner’s world erupted with a single phone call. She became numb with a revelation, and her beliefs held no meaning the moment Maxwell Sheridan left her. Gone was the perfection she thought they had found together. All the good taken away by his decision. But his goodbye wouldn’t destroy her. Josie has more important things to worry about than the shattered pieces of her heart. Because not even Max can stop her from saying the one goodbye that means the very most. The very last goodbye that will hurt her in ways Maxwell Sheridan couldn’t.

PLEASE NOTE: With the Last Goodbye is NOT a standalone novel. It is the conclusion to Maxwell and Josephine's story, which begins in With the First Goodbye. You should read With the First Goodbye prior to reading With the Last Goodbye!

Some advice before you start: grab some chocolate, a drink, and tissues -- lots and lots of tissues -- you're going to need them.

This is the conclusion to Max and Josie’s story, it is everything I hoped for and more. The emotion is cranked up a notch if that’s even possible, the characters more broken the writing even stronger. 

We pick up exactly where we left off, me personally with my heart shredded on the floor and Josie’s life imploding all around her. 

Josie is a young woman who has been dealt several blows but her strength of character shines throughout the story. The decisions she makes, the journey she goes on are not easy but I admired her for following through on them.

Max often infuriated me at times I was screaming at him to just talk more, his obsession with being forgiven for past mistakes could ruin everything. 

The author lulled me in and then the plot twist and I was left floundering again. The story told over the two books was amazing. It made me sad, it gave me hope, it made smile and it made me cry but above all it made me believe in love.

[Release Blitz * Reviews] DON'T BE AFRAID by CA Harms @charms0814 @GiveMeBooksBlog #Review #Excerpt

Title: Don't Be Afraid
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Second Chance Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 30, 2018
Have you ever looked at someone and just knew,
knew that they were placed in your life for a reason?
The one person that would be not only your best friend,
but your absolute everything.
That’s how I felt the first time I saw him.

That one day when a few little words changed our entire lives forever…

Don’t be Afraid, he said.
Life can change so quickly.
One moment you can be smiling and feeling as if you're walking on clouds and the next, everything you love, everything you treasure crumbles at your feet.

I told him to fight, I told him I needed him.
We needed him.
But there are just some fights that can't be won…

He was my angel then, and he’s still my angel now.
In a way, I believe he’s still looking out for us, giving us a future.
Sometimes it’s as if I can still feel his presence,
guiding us and keeping us safe.

So, I won’t be Afraid.
I'll live. I’ll fight.
It’s what he would have wanted.

I’ll do it for him…

Don't Be ass. Be afraid, be very afraid. This book is incredible. It hurts so good. The feels...I was a blubbering baby. My husband rolled his eyes at me but this book caused "F-Me I Feel Like I'm Dying" ugly cries. I look like Medusa on heroin with my puffy eyes and sniffling to keep the snot in. I am a hot mess of emotions on date night no less. So be afraid, be very afraid. CA Harms ruins date nights and breaks hearts, decimates hope, and stabs happiness in this beautiful, beautiful story. 
Did that make sense? Maybe?! Okay here goes:
CA Harms wrote a blurb. The blurb had a lump forming in my throat. I had a feeling my reactions were not going to be tame. Then CA Harms let me read the book that the blurb belongs to (technically, she didn't know it was me. It was through a blog and a release...not important). And that's when my world fell apart!
I'm talking soul shattering intensity. I was a sobbing limp rag, a shell of a person while reading this book. It is so emotional, so raw. It's so damn real it hurts.
Have you ever experienced loss?Feared the future?Mourned the past?
If so, this book captures those feelings and magnifies those pains. For those who haven't, it comes pretty darn close to giving you that experience. 
I often get tears reading. I even find I have ugly cried a bit. But this made ugly crying look like alligator tears. I was a pathetic mess. I literally sobbed into my shirt trying to muffle my cries. It is intense. It's raw. It's real. 
So I say be afraid of your reaction, be afraid you don't have enough tissues, be afraid your dog will cry with you.
Don't Be Afraid to read it. Don't Be Afraid to love it. Don't Be Afraid

When you cry within the first 15% of a book you know your emotions are going to be shredded, several times I had to stop reading because I couldn’t see the words through my tears.
The blurb reads like poetry but don’t be fooled it’s a poetry that will gut you heart body and soul.
This whole book is about love, all the different kinds of love you can have. A love between man and wife, parents and a child, between friends, brothers sisters you feel the love wrapping around you with every word the author writes.
Sawyer and Pat are a beautiful couple, their story starts in the present but through flashbacks we get to see how they met. If you believe in soul mates their story will reaffirm everything to you, at times I felt like my heart stopped I felt so much.
No way am I telling you the story it’s too beautiful to spoil just know that every word was written with feeling and a depth of emotion that will break and heal your heart,
I buried my body beneath the covers and curled around his warmth. With my head rested just where he’d wanted it, I closed my eyes tight and willed the tears away. Doing my best to hide the emptiness consuming me, I concentrated on breathing evenly.

“Always loved you right like this,” he confessed. “Your body so close to mine it feels like we’re the same person.” 

I took deep breaths as I thought of all the reasons life was so damn unfair.

“Loved burying my face in your hair, just breathing you in.”

Those were the words most girls dreamed of hearing, and they made our love feel more solid and concrete. But hearing them now was like a slow form of torture, because they were tearing the small amount of control I had left in me to pieces.

“You were made just for me, Sawyer Cooper,” he whispered sleepily. “I truly believe that.”

I squeeze my eyes shut tighter as I curled into him closer.

“Forever my girl.”

Tears rolled along my cheeks as I did all I could to wipe them away before he noticed. I was thankful sleep had taken him over and he was oblivious to the shattering of my soul.

[Release Blitz * Reviews] UNWANTED by M Piper @Author_MPiper


I’m the little sister of two very protective brothers.

They were my best friends, but they made my dating life difficult. I probably didn’t help it either, only picking the losers that broke my heart more times than I’d like to admit.

So I pulled the trigger two years ago and left home for a bigger and better life where I wasn’t being shadowed by all my past mistakes. I thought that I’d get out and do something with my life.

Living in the windy city is easy, right?


All I got in that city was a handful of mistakes to add to the list. That is, until I was handed off to Nico. Nico, the nephew of my sleazeball boss and absolutely the last thing I was looking for. He saved me that night, and as the infatuation grew between us, so did my realization that Chicago isn’t where I belong.

So when I move back home, without the one person that I’ve grown pretty addicted to, things are rough to say the least. And yet again, my relationship abilities are put to the test when a long distance relationship becomes too much for me to handle.

I want to blame it all on someone else, but the reality is I’M JUST NOT CUT OUT FOR THIS SHIT.
Grab UnWanted now:
UnWanted is the end of an era..or just this series. But it's also a beginning (corny, I know but bear with me).
As the quintessential "last man standing" in the West family, Reagan is struggling with everything. The pressure to be herself, the desire to make it, and her suffocating need to get out. But not everything works out the way we plan...
UnPlanned, UnStable, and UnWanted she heads off to Chicago (Did you notice ...thought you might!) where she is completely miserable. Oops, was that a secret!?! (Can't imagine being away from the Wests would do anything other than depress a person.) With a disturbing twist to her situation, Reagan finds what she's been missing.
She finds a new beginning. She remembers what she's missing. She decides to go home. Back to where she's wanted, back to her stable job, and back to what she previously had planned out...just one problem- him.
Everything changed with him. It's complicated, it's hard, and it's everything she never wanted. But how do you change from UnWanted to...this?
UnWanted is a sweet story with less than "savory" choices. It's a fairy tale though. Perfect and leaves a smile on your face. 

Great ending to a great series! The only reason this book didn’t get 5 stars from me is that given the situation Reagan was in at her boss’s party near the beginning, she was too trusting and moved forward with the hero too fast for me. I would’ve loved more time, conversation, or some sort of task for them to build on their connection that weekend rather than the “game” they played. Aside from that, I really liked where the story went in showing their difficulties with the long distance relationship.

As a couple, Nico and Reagan were so sweet together and her family support and banter was great! Reagan drove me mad at times, her poor decisions and stubborn, childish ways of thinking. I’m so glad she had Nico to talk her through some things, but that poor emotional boy didn’t always get that in return, especially after Reagan moved home.
I was surprised there wasn’t some kind of slimy blackmail or threat or kidnapping from Nico’s uncle... given his sketchy history and Nico working for a pharmaceutical company. I kept waiting for it... I think I’ve been reading dark romance too much, lol, but I digress...

It was amazing having so much of Lincoln and Ford in the story. Their personalities clearly came through and I loved hearing from them and knowing what’s going on in their lives.

I’ve really enjoyed the books that make up this series however this can be read as a stand-alone.
Reagan is a young woman who feels stifled in her home town where everyone knows her business, so she decides to leave and show them all she can make it on her own.
When we see her again things haven’t gone to plan she’s working in a dead end job and found herself in a very dangerous situation. It’s because of this that she meets Nico, this portion of the story just didn’t fit for me. Considering what happens prior to this I just found it unbelievable that she would have acted this way.
Reagan is afraid of commitment which ties into a pivotal strand of the story to be honest she frustrated me so much at times. Nico is a total sweetheart which after the first meeting I never would have imagined him to be.
Given Nico’s family and the circumstances in which they met I kept expecting that to come back to mess with them, i was a little disappointed it didn’t as it would have given another aspect to the story.
**Start by meeting her brothers now!** 

Grab the intro short to the book in the Wild in the Windy City Anthology, releasing March 6, 2018! 


“You have everything?” My mom’s worried hands rub my arms like it’s winter and I’m going to catch a cold if I don’t warm up. But it’s not. It’s spring and hot as fucking balls already. My dad watches us with narrowed eyes and I almost feel guilty for doing this, for making them feel like this, but I have to. 
“Mom. I’m fine. I’m moving two hours away, not to the other side of the country.” 
Her worried eyes search mine and her arms wrap around me. 
“I don’t understand why you’re doing this,” she whispers and my heart breaks the slightest. “But I’m letting you go. For now. Just be warned, if you stay gone too long, I’m sending both your brothers up there to bring you back to us.” She pulls back and her hands clasp on to mine. My mother; always the worrier. How she raised the three of us without suffering massive panic attacks I’ll never know. She’s the strongest woman I know, and I hope this new chapter of my life will help me turn into a woman more like her and less like the girl I’m starting to see. Someone who cares too much about what boys think about her and eats way too much chocolate while looking at cat memes on her phone. I used to get out a lot on the weekends, hell even on the weeknights. But that was back when both my brothers were single bachelors and we were each others wingmen. Now that they’re married, I have no best friends to go out with. The only girl I’ve ever called a best friend moved to Chicago months ago. So, naturally, I’m moving in with her. Taking on the big city without living under my parent’s roof. I need to get out and grow up at some point. I’ve been running the same touristy boutique I worked at since I was old enough to work, and at twenty-five years old, I feel absolutely stuck in life. When my dad handed ownership of the family business over to the three of us siblings, I never realized how suffocating it would end up feeling. Working in the same small building, day in and day out, with no change in routine for the rest of my life? Where’s the adventure? Where’s the excitement? Hell, the most excitement I get anymore is when I babysit my almost seven-year-old nephew, Carter. I need out. Lincoln, my oldest brother, refuses to let me sign over my rights to it so I’m having to hand over management to my longest running employee, praying he doesn’t fuck up the boutique. I should stay…sure. But I can’t. I need out. It’s suffocating being the youngest West in Springfield. 
“You better come back next month. And I’ll shoot anyone that looks at you wrong up there. People from Chicago suck ass,” my brother Ford mumbles, wrapping his arms around me. I take a deep breath and smile, pulling back. 
“I can take care of myself. You taught me, remember?” I pat his cheek and look at Lincoln. Ford and I always partied together, but Lincoln and I…we had something different. A close relationship built more on respect and responsibilities than the friendship Ford and I created. With him becoming a father at such a young age, he needed me probably just as much as I needed him. Or so I thought. 
He didn’t. He doesn’t now. But the look he’s giving me breaks my heart the most. It’s like I’m disappointing him. 
“You’re sure about this?” he asks, eyeing my packed car, the same car my dad bought me when I turned sixteen. I smirk and shrug. 
“I am.” I blink away a few ugly tears threatening and rush him, wrapping my arms around him. “I’ll miss you,” I whisper. 
“I don’t get why you’re doing this, Reag,” he mumbles, tightening his arms around me. All I can do is shake my head. My brothers are homebodies. They enjoy the small town life. They enjoy having their own families and big family get togethers at my parents. I love my family and they’ve never done me any wrong, but that’s not me. I need freedom. I need my own space. I need to prove that I can do it on my own. I’ll never get any of that living in this city. Not when the West name is better known than the Mayer’s. 
I pull back and press a kiss to Carter’s forehead before he runs off to play with the dog. 
“Alright.” I clap my hands and take one long look at the family I’m leaving. I’m excited. I’m nervous. I’m a little sad, but I know this is what I need. “Time to head out.” 
I head towards the door of the car and pop it open. 
“Drive safely,” my dad blurts. 
“Text when you get there,” my mom says immediately after. 
“Don’t get pregnant!” Ford yells as I duck into my car, laughing. 
I wave to them all, blowing kisses then pull away.
It’s time to start my new life.

[Blog Tour * REVIEWS] SIGNED by Marni Mann @MarniMann @jennw23

A one-night stand with James Ryne, the hottest actress in LA, was a night I’d never forget…

James: I can’t stop thinking about you. 

Brett: I didn’t know America’s sweetheart was such a dirty girl.

James: It gets better. 
Brett: You’re too young for me. 
James: Eighteen’s the age of consent. 
Brett: The things I want to do to you right now… 
James: Are you ever going to tell me who you really are? 
Brett: The best you’ve ever had. That’s all you need to know. 
James: When are you coming back to LA? 
Brett: Next week—and you’d better not be wearing panties. 
Brett: What the hell did I just watch? 
James: Oh my God, Brett! It’s going viral! 
James: My life is ruined. My career. My reputation. 
James: Are you there? 
James: Will you let me explain? 
James: Brett? 
Brett: Forget everything I said before. Forget us.

I tried to forget her…until she walked into my office, begging to get signed.

This story completely blew me away. I LOVE Brett an James! Their chemistry just explodes. This story had me hooked from the very beginning, and it still hasn’t let me go. Every time I would tell myself that I would set it down at the end of the chapter, something would happen that made it mandatory that I read just one more chapter. I never actually read just one more chapter. I ended up reading them all. I want everyone to read about James and Brett. I already can’t wait to read it again! READ THIS BOOK! Guaranteed to have you all swoony. HEA. Guaranteed to leave you with a massive book hangover. This author writes with a golden pen, because her stories are pure magic.

This book....This. Book. THIS. BOOK!!!!!
I have made it no secret that Marni Mann has made me a convert to her wicked ways. Even when she scares me, even when I hate cheaters, she still makes me change everything. She has a way to convince you her way is right.

Signed is no exception. I hated a certain stuck up "lawyer" who dropped a young starlet as soon as he could. I wanted to junk punch him. I wanted to hold her and let her cry on my shoulder. (I may have wanted to shake her silly when she allowed a certain situation to happen.) I want the best for her. I wanted everyone hurt and groveling at her feet.

Most of all, I wanted her to strut her stuff like she was over it. And Marni delivered! Signed, sealed, and delivered. - Get it. Wink, wink, nudge.
Signed is raw emotions, carnal need, and serious tension. It's all kinds of hot, plenty of drama, and filled with friends that everyone needs on their side. Plus it's seriously, seriously smoking hot cover...

He died that night, alone, in the rain, in the dark, the boy that called me baby girl.
I was only seventeen; we were going to be together forever.
On his way to pick me up for prom, he swerved. I’ll never know what made him do it, what killed the boy I’d loved my whole life. With roses clutched in his hand, he bled out in icy wetness all alone.
His best friend is here though, and I’m pretty sure he loves me.
But after the accident, I left for a year and didn’t look back.
Now I’m back in town and my heart is like shattered glass.
Do I pick up the pieces and risk getting cut? And do I let another boy call me baby girl?

#NewRelease #Reviews RESPECT by Aleatha Romig @InkSlingerPR @AleathaRomig

Respect - An Infidelity Stand-alone Novel 

By Aleatha Romig

Release day – January 23, 2018


Amazon: US | UK

RESPECT – An Infidelity Series Novel

“The making of a man”

From New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a stand-alone novel, a spin-off from her beloved Infidelity series. With classic Aleatha Romig twists, turns, deceptions, and devotions, this new epic mafia love story/ thriller will delve into a world where family takes on new meaning, and even the inhabitants are suspicious of the next chapter.

“Standing at what I believe is the precipice of my life, I, Oren Demetri, was too young to understand that it wasn’t and too old to imagine that it couldn’t be.

The already hefty accumulation of my successes and failures, bravery and fears, and rewards and suffering, had brought me to this point. It was hard to contemplate the things I’d done, and yet in reality, I’d only begun to learn the possibilities.

I suppose that’s how it was for me at twenty-nine years of age on the brink of all I’d ever wanted without fully realizing the price I would pay. Yet in that moment, I knew there would be no cost too great or sacrifice I wouldn’t make. I had no idea how far-reaching that moment of self-discovery would be because as the congregation’s murmurs quieted, bleeding into silence and allowing the thump of my heart to be the only sound I heard, I was a man filled with love and adoration, emotions in stark contrast to those I needed in the world I’d built or the one I was about to enter.

Angelina Costello was my dream and now my reality. I’d worked diligently to move beyond the actuality of being a dockworker’s son to becoming a self-made, successful entrepreneur, all in an effort to earn the right to call her my own. I’d overcome servitude to others, collecting their paychecks and lowly praises, to become the one who signed the paychecks and offered the accolades when they were rightfully earned.

The world was my oyster and walking toward me on the arm of her uncle was my pearl. I’d found her amongst the empty shells life had offered. There was no need to pry open another possibility. Angelina was all I wanted. Yet my path was uncharted. There was more for me to earn, lose, and willingly give.

The top of that list was respect.”

This stand-alone novel may be read before or after reading the Infidelity series or on its own.

Have you been Aleatha'd?

- - - - - -

Here's my truth...

I have many of Ms. Romig's books. Two signed paperbacks and many of them in ebook. I even have several in audio book. But aside from a seriously hot novella in an anthology I had to buy in paperback as well, I haven't read them. Until now.

I wasn't sure what to expect based on the novella, but Respect wasn't it. I think I spent the entire book waiting for the other shoe to drop. As I didn't know any of the characters, I formed incorrect assumptions. I thought it was actually going to end differently. And I never- not in chapter one, ten, or thirty- thought I would be brought to tears but after experiencing so could I not?

Respect has a fully developed cast of characters. It has an awesome blend of real and fictional aspects. It may be the "past" but that's easily forgotten as you devour its pages. 

I personally found it hard to get into. I think I was intimidated by missing out on the previous series. If you give up the misconceptions and attack it head on, I think you will get caught up in the Costello family. It's getting out that could be a problem...

reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood

I haven’t read any of the Infidelity series reading this has made me want to dive right in. 

This is the story of Oren and his true love Angelina, it follows them from their first meeting to marriage and babies and the inner workings of the ‘family’. 

We see Oren make choices both good and bad, he’s a man who starts out with ambition wanting a better life s successful life then Angelina makes him want to be a better man. Slowly the life he has to fit into corrupts and slowly he becomes a stranger to his family. 

Angelina was my favourite character in the book, she dealt with everything she endured with faith, strength and loyalty. My feelings for Oren fluctuated, his obvious love for Angelina made me swoon but as the story unfolded my faith in him dwindled. His penance brought me full circle and I fell once more. 

I enjoyed this book the writing as always was on point , I’m going to use this as my introduction to the Infidelity series.

Angelina Costello was the only woman to ever take my breath away. I couldn’t not speak to her. “I haven’t seen you since NYU.”

“I’ve been living overseas, studying history and architecture in Italy.”

“Italy! Molto bene. And now you’re back?” I asked.

“I am.”

“To stay?”

“I believe so.”

“Perhaps we could see one another,” I proposed, all the while hoping that she would say yes and saying a prayer that she would say no.

Her lips curved upward. “I see you now.”

“Si, and I would like to see more.”

With a glint to her gaze, she said, “I never forgot you. I thought at one time...” Her head tilted innocently as her lip momentarily hid behind her teeth. “Are you sure you aren’t still scared of me?”

“Angelina, I’m quite certain that I’m terrified of you.”

Her smile grew. “Bene. Then let me give you my number.”
