excerpt
I put my hand on the nape of her neck and pull her gently toward me. “Come here, Addison,” I whisper to her. Her eyes lock in on my lips and the air shifts between us. It’s so full of want and need that I can’t stand it anymore. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to touch her intimately that I don’t know how I’ve lasted this long.
I seal her lips with mine and am met with a soft moan from Addison. After a moment of gentle kissing, I deepen it and part her lips with my tongue. She grabs me by the shirt, leans back, and pulls me on top of her. I run my hand up the outside of her thigh as I devour her lips. I had taken off my jacket and tie when we walked in the door, and now she’s working on the buttons of my shirt. Her hands are shaking and fumbling as she struggles to get them undone. I’m considering pulling back and putting a stop to this since she seems so nervous, but when I pull back to look into her eyes I see that it’s not nerves making her shake, it’s pure lust and need. I sit up and undo the rest of the buttons and slide my shirt off. “Stop teasing me, Colin. I need you.”

Tammy's Review:
Shattered Lives Mended Hearts by: Lena Nicole… 3.5 stars
Snip of the book: Addison life was fractured a year ago. When she was left with no memory of her fiancé. When Pierce entered her life she thought she was on the mend until her memories of Colin resurfaced. With her old memories back Addison is left to deal with the consequences of the decision she made to move on with another man. Now faced with loving two men Addison must figure out who her soul mate is without breaking the heart of the other.

That is a mouth full. And I would not want to be in Addison’s shoes at this point. All I can say is REALLY a flippin tie!!!!!!!!!! Of all the things like Colin said it was the tie that bought back her memory. Not his telling of how they spent time together. Not the kiss he finally gave to her. But a tie? I mean I can see that. It does happen. My problem is how the rest of the book played out. 

(taking deep breathe) Let’s go by characters.
Addison….my opinion selfish, self-centered no common sense what so ever. She loves 2 men. Has built a relationship with both that are completely different. With Colin she is in the “safe zone” as I call it. Which there is nothing wrong with. Yet with Pierce she is in the “high impact zone”. This is also perfectly fine. Now my thing is really simple. If 1 guy is able to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Give you goose bumps just by looking at you. And be able to melt your panties off just by speaking your name do you really need to do this long drawn out flipping back and forth between the 2? I don’t think so. 

Bring on Pierce. Yeah for a 29yr old CEO of a company I have to say the man is stupid. I get that Sam is (cough cough) is not all there mentally. However, how do you NOT see what it is that she is doing. Please do not give me that love is blind crap cause that has nothing to do with this. Any who. He is in my opinion again trying to win the love of Addy through money. Giving her this trip here and there. Buying her this bracelet or necklace there. Sorry you don’t buy ones love. I do give him credit for getting her out of her shell. A helping her experience new and exciting things. 

Finally I give you Colin. My heart went out to him in book 1. Here I want to slap the sh*t out of him. WAKE UP DUDE!!!!!!! How can you not see that she is slipping through your hands. But did you really fight for her like you said you would? I mean in a way he did. In the first book. This one I am not so sure about that. I just did not feel the same way about him anymore. To me they made him weak here. 
On the plus side there is one part of this book that I did love. When it is stated. “Do you have any idea what it feels like to not remember someone and when you finally do you get to feel the pain from all the hurt you caused the one person you love? Relive it through your head and have the realization smack you in the face that you did nothing to try and remember him? Or how about remembering each and every heartbreaking look someone is giving you, but you’re too blind to see it because you can’t remember them and you’re too busy being happy with another man? I can’t believe how incredibly selfish I am.”

That right there says it ALL!!!!!!!!!!!

“She is my heart and the other half of my life, and now, that life no longer exists." ~Drake Evans, Surviving Love


Synopsis



For Drake Evans, life was once happy. He was living the kind of existence that any man would envy. By his side was the woman he loved and a daughter he cherished. Life was truly perfect, until the day demons from the past came crashing into their perfect world, destroying everything he had been so sure would last forever. Today, Drake’s life is shrouded in misery. Every day he faces the unyielding pain of losing the love of his life at the hands of a drug dealing murderer. On top of it all, he has to live with the anguishing betrayal caused by the devastating role his brother played in Presley’s death. Gone are the days of carefree happiness and impending futures. They've all been replaced with the shallow emptiness hollowing out his heart and the undeniable rage pumping through his veins. Drake is only moving through the motions of life, raising his daughter and earning a living, in the only way he can tolerate—alone. Since the day she was banished from her family, Zoe Ledoux lives her life as a free spirit. For the past four years, Zoe’s been moving through life day by day, place by place. She never stays in one area long enough to establish relationships. She refuses to get close to anyone, protecting herself from the fear of once again being left behind. Then a turn of fate sends her to Sulfur Heights where she lands a job working as a bartender. In a chance meeting, an instant connection forms, bringing together the wounded souls of Drake and Zoe. It is together that they begin to cope; to mend the brokenness of their pasts and feel what it is like to truly live again. However, will their newly formed friendship be enough to pull Drake and Zoe from their dark pasts? Can Drake overcome the fear of losing someone he loves and eradicate his anger just enough to let someone in? Will he learn that Surviving Love with Zoe is what he ultimately needs in order to be happy?

About IN HER WAKE: Cole Reynolds had it all. And then one night he makes a bad choice... and loses everything. When a drunken night out at a Michigan State college party results in the death of six people, Cole must come to terms with his part in the tragedy. Normally, he'd be able to lean on his best friends. The best friends that have been in his life since he could barely walk. Only, they're gone. Worse, there's the shattered body of a sixteen-year-old girl lying somewhere in a hospital bed, her entire life ripped from her because of a case of beer and a set of keys. Everyone assures him that they know it wasn't intentional and yet he can't ignore the weight of their gazes, the whispers behind his back. The all-consuming guilt he feels every time he thinks of that girl who won't so much as allow him near her hospital room to apologize. As the months go by and the shame and loneliness festers, Cole begins to lose his grip of what once was important-college, his girlfriend, his future. His life. It's not until Cole hits rock-bottom that he can begin to see another way out of his personal hell: forgiveness. And there's only one person who can give that to him... Are you as excited about this as we are?? And...this is going to be available at the great price of $.99!!

And while you're at it, pre-order the gorgeous paperback of FOUR SECONDS TO LOSE, hitting bookstores on 4/1!
About FOUR SECONDS TO LOSE: Owning a strip club isn’t the fantasy most guys expect it to be. With long hours, a staff with enough issues to keep a psych ward in business, and the police regularly on his case, twenty-nine year old Cain is starting to second guess his unspoken mission to save the women he employs. And then blond, brown-eyed Charlie Rourke walks through his door, and things get really complicated. Cain abides by a strict “no sleeping with the staff” rule. But being around Charlie challenges Cain’s self-control…and it’s been a long time since any woman has done that. Twenty-two-year old Charlie Rourke needs a lot of money, really fast, in order to vanish before it’s too late. Taking her clothes off for men makes her stomach curl but Charlie tells herself that at least she’s putting her acting anddancing skills to good use. And though her fellow dancers seem eager to nab their sexy, sophisticated, and genuinely caring boss, she’s not interested. After all, Charlie Rourke doesn’t really exist—and the girl pretending to be her doesn’t need to complicate her life with romance. Unfortunately, Charlie soon discovers that developing feelings for Cain is inevitable, that those feelings may not be unrequited—but losing him when he finds out what she’s involved with will be more painful than any other sentence awaiting her.

Enduring Everything by M. Sembera Release Day Promo

Time doesn't always heal old wounds. Often time makes them worse. Especially when you push those wounds to the back of your mind and focus on the life you want to lead. Then the day comes when you finally have everything.
It is then, you realize that nothing ever goes away.


In order to put years of heartache and abuse behind her, Ren learned to bury the past deep down inside herself and focus on one thing; raising her daughter Sophia. As the years passed, she found peace in the daily routine of her job and becomes content with being a mom. 

On the night of her daughter's wedding, Ren takes a risk and strays from the predictable world she has set up for herself when her longtime friend Jackson rekindles a loving promise he made to her long ago.

Ren cannot keep her past buried, and the two struggle when old problems start to creep back into their lives. She cannot get her world back in order and her instinct is to shut everyone out.  

In the midst of it all Ren is coerced into helping Charlotte, an adopted teenager of her close friends the Roberts'. Reluctantly agreeing, Ren finds Charlotte is in dire need of self control and direction. Upon discovering they share a similar upbringing Ren feels she can advise Charlotte and keep her from repeating her own mistakes. Taking steps to ensure Charlotte's recovery, her new found purpose causes a rift in the family she has come to know and love as her own.  

Battling issues, both new and old, will Ren & Jacks be able to endure everything life has thrown at them or will Ren give up everything and isolate herself from the inevitable pain that will follow when all her secrets are revealed?
