“Weather to Fly” by Elbow

EXCERPT:
           “How about you and me pretend we are the only two people on this island and we’re staying for a good long time?” Ben nuzzled her neck for a moment and then found her earlobe with his lips, savouring it.
            “Why, Ben,” Alicia said coyly, “if there is no one else on this island, that means we can do anything we like, anywhere we like . . .”
            “Exactly,” Ben replied in a low, sexy tone as he slid his hand in between her thighs. Finding the high slit in her skirt, he ran his large hand along the silk of her legs, wasting no time in getting to her bikini bottoms. He toyed with the strings resting on her hips. One little tug and they would fall away from her, leaving her exposed under her skirt. Trailing kisses down her neck to her collarbone, he pulled at the strings. “I’ve been waiting to do that all day,” he murmured in her ear.
            Alicia gasped a little at the thought of being so exposed to the world before she realized that they really were alone. She allowed herself to enjoy the hot breeze as it caressed her sensitive skin. “That’s kind of why I bought it.”
            Ben’s fingers moved along the length of her sex, taking in its satin warmth. Alicia gave a little moan and turned to find his mouth with hers, feeling her body respond as it always did to Ben’s touch. After years of his kisses, she never stopped getting that thrill from feeling his lips on her. He kissed her the way he looked at her, as though she were the only woman to have ever inhabited the planet.

            Sliding his fingertips gently into her, pressing his palm against her, rubbing with exactly the amount of pressure that he knew she loved, Ben knew every inch of her body, how she wanted to be touched, what she needed, and he took full advantage of that knowledge as he moved his other hand up over her breasts. Moving his fingers in tiny circles inside her, he could feel her press herself hungrily against his hand. It wasn’t long before they reached that exquisite moment when she tensed in long waves as commanding as those in the ocean nearby. Alicia bit down on her lip to stifle the loud cry that begged to erupt from her throat. Ben’s own breathing become ragged and his entire body hardened at the desire that was building up in him. He wanted her right there on that beach and he was going to have her.

Release Blitz: Trapped by Beverley Kendall

TrappedBlitzBanner

Morning everyone!!

Now that World Cup is over, this Brazilian girl can go back to her routine, if I ever had one LOL

 Trapped

Trapped by Beverley Kendall 
(Trapped #1)
Publication date: July 7th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

 

BOOK SYNOPSIS:

My life has turned out to be such a cliché. And not in a good way.

It’s not exactly Sixteen and Pregnant, but at eighteen my only advantage is a high school diploma. And if that’s not enough, the father—and I use that term loosely—couldn’t have hightailed it out of my life fast enough.

I thought I really knew him. Unfortunately, my boyfriend of three years transformed from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde once he realized his carefree, childless days would be coming to an end.

I’m over him now though. The real love of my life is chubby, has more gum than teeth, and stands a little over two feet tall. She may not have been planned, but I’ve never regretted having her. She is the center of my world.

A world that’s turned upside down when my ex returns ready to earn the love and trust of the child he abandoned before birth.

Letting him into my daughter’s life is one thing but letting him back into mine isn’t going to happen. Because the biggest mistake of my life has a name, and that name is Mitchell Aaron Kingsley.

And he’s one mistake I don’t ever intend to make again.

 

EXCERPT:

“Great, and I appreciate that,” he says, his tone heavy on the sarcasm. “But this is for Bree and you know I would do anything for her.”

Right. Bree comes first. As she should.

“Oh I know you would,” I reply, in total agreement with that. “You love her. You moved back home to be with her. You quit football for her. You’ve canceled plans for her. Believe me, Mitch, I can clearly see how much you love her.”

There’s a beat of silence and then he says, “Wait, isn’t that supposed to be a good thing? I thought that’s what you wanted. Hell, isn’t that what all mothers want from the fathers of their kids?”

“It is,” I say quietly, heat suffusing my cheeks in a flood of shame and remorse. God, what is wrong with me? This is what I want. Always wanted. All those nights I walked the carpet with her trying to get her to sleep, I wanted him there. And how many tears had I shed wanting him to care this much? Far too many.

Mitch growls low in his throat, tips his head back and runs his hands roughly through his hair. His expression is one of utter bewilderment when he lowers his gaze to mine. “Then. What. Is. The. Problem? You gotta help me out here, Paige, because I’m doing everything I can think of to prove myself to you.”

And that’s when it hits me. If they were doing a remake of Mommy Dearest, I could easily be cast in the lead role because I think I’m actually jealous of my own daughter. God, I have to be the worst mother in the world.

My Review:

Rainfall took me completely by surprise!

Not because of the apparent “mystery” behind it, having read a book with a similar “issue” I had the idea in my mind. But no, it took me completely by surprise, because I was mind-f***cked without realizing I was being mind-f***cked!

This book wrecked me. I was left empty and desperate for what could have been, but I  was also left amazed and so glad I read it!

The storyline is very unexpected, it’s not something we see out there that frequently, coincidentaly I had read a book with a similar subject, but I like how it’s so different than what we are used to in book world! And not only it is different, but Melissa writes it so well, it seems like a normal thing, something you might see on the streets on your way home. Not because she makes is casual. No, but because she makes it feel natural. She is very, very talented! She impressed me more than a lot! And I don’t way that very often..I’ve became kind of jaded with  angsty and gritty books, and when I find one that not only impresses me, but take me by surprise, I’m sold!! Whoeve wrote it is in my watch-list from then on!

Rainfall is the kind of book that you truly have to experience by yourself. Even if I gave you all the spoilers, which I won’t, you wouldn’t truly understand them, without reading it yourself.

This is the kind of story that you hate and love at the same time! It’s no even the case of loving the book and  hating the ending. Oh, no! You’ll love everything until you’d be caught in a desperate frisson to have the ending you want and you might hate the whole book, but than you can’t help but think it’s brilliant! I’ve never felt that way abut a book, so congrats and thank you,  Melissa for giving me a first! ;)

If you have told me about this book I would probably think it wouldn’t be the kind of book I would like, but than it has ALL the aspects in a book I love, plus what’s not to like about amazing writing and perfect execution of such an uncommon idea?

I was first drawn to Rainfall by its cover, it feels depressingly happy. After all we need a shelter at some point, but learning to know when to chase this shelter is the answer. We need to experience life in its full, dance in the rain, do crazy and scary things, fall in love, go through heartbreak to really understand the beauty of the life that we are handled.

Jumping out of an aeroplane at 12000 feet might sound scary, but life is so much scarier and so much harder! Paige, the heroine from Rainfall, is the perfect exaple of how life can teach a person to feel humble, to realize that we need to live and to never regret.

Page is an incredible young woman and hers and Adam’s love story is just beautiful. I dare you not love Adam!! He is amazing, completely swoonful and perfect for Paige. I’m really glad she found him in her life. If it wasn’t for him, she wouldn’t had became the even more amazing woman she had.

Adam is someone everyone of us should meet at some point! He is not only amazing, gorgeous and sweet, but he is a walking life lesson!

“There had been so much tragedy, so much emotion, so much pain, and through it all I had managed to find my way back to myself, to may family, to my life. But Adam’s loss was like nothing I had ever experienced. I almost didn’t make it back.”

The other characters are also great. I absolutely loved how Paige took care of her ill father, he brought tears to my eyes, how ev3en without recognizing her, they still had this beautiful connection. And her mom…I still don’t like her very much, but she has all the reasons to be like she is. I’m glad Paige not only got the great example of her father, but also of her step-father Frank. She has amazing men in her life, that would do anything for her.

Page goes through a whole lot more than your average person in her life, but she handles it and yes, she goes through heartbreak so many times, but to experience an epic love and an epic way of living her life is much more gratifying than regreting not living.

I felt this way about reading this book. Did I cry in desperation after finish reading it? Oh yes! Did I hate it? Oh yes! Did I love it? Oh yes! Did I wish some things would be different? I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t! But would I go through it all again just to experience finding such an amazing story and talented author? HELL YEAH!!!

There are no words that can describe how you’ll feel after finishing Rainfall. I would never say I would love a book that ended that way, but well, I do! And the ending was completely satisfying for me!! You really need to read it to understand! And just so you know it is HEA, but a different kind of HEA and one that suprised me by how I actually liked it! I’m  left with such a bittersweet feeling after reading this book. This was an incredible reading! Utterly amazing and incredible!

So that is it! There’s nothing more I need to say to you other than you need to be amazed like I was. You need to hate this book, you need to love it, you need to fall in love with Adam, you need the heartbreak, you need the solution, you need to  mend your hearts…you simply need to let life catch you by surprise like the rain on a bright sunny summer morning! You need to experience Rainfall!! You need to have the privilege to say that you know Paige and Adam!

“Life throws us curve balls all the time. Sometimes it gets so hard that we think we will not survive. But mankind is made of sterner stuff than that. Our will to survive will not go unchallenged. We rise up again and again to fight for this precious, amazing and delicate gift we have been given. For life, for love and for everything in between.”

EXCERPT:

“Adam, please,” I beg, taking hold of his face and forcing him to look at me. He stares through me as if I am invisible and I bite my lip, my face crumpling. I am so close to the edge, the emotional precipice that has beaten me once before. In 14 hours I think to myself. In 14 hours you can have me. I will leave this life when he does. I have no intention of coming back without Adam.

I force myself to stand, my legs feeling weak and I head for the kitchen. I make two cups of tea, using the short time to collect myself and regain control of my emotions. Making my way back to the lounge I stub my toe on the edge of the sofa and give a yelp of pain, my eyes and nose starting to water instantly. Adam glances up, concern crossing his face and makes as though to stand, then seems to think better of it and sinks back into the armchair.

“Enough!” I shout at him, anger coursing through my veins. “Don’t act as though you don’t exist Adam, please!” He lifts his head, an ugly, sinister smile spreading across his handsome face.

“But I don’t exist, Paige,” he says calmly.

“Oh no, you don’t,” I mutter angrily, setting the cups down, not concerned that half the tea sloshes onto the wooden table. “Don’t you dare do this to me!” I round the table and sit down on the opposite end of it, facing him.

“Do what?” His tone is sarcastic. “I don’t exist. You know it, I know it. In fact, I don’t even know why you brought me back here. Is this some sort of self-persecuting act of pity?” He raises his eyebrows and opens his arms, gesturing at the apartment. “This is not my house,” he laughs without humour.

“This is your house; this is our home!” I half-sob.

“These are not my clothes,” he continues as though I haven’t even spoken, pulling at his cotton shirt, “this is not even my body,” he adds, gesturing at himself.

“Adam, please,” I beg, and he regards me with a disgusted look on his face, “and you?” his tone is accusatory and I brace myself for what is coming next. “You are not my wife!” he hisses, standing and stalking into the kitchen as I cover my face with my hands, the pain of his words too much for me to even voice a denial.

“These!” he yells, opening the kitchen cabinet and pulling out two of the mugs that I gave him for Christmas. “These don’t belong here!”

“No, no, no!” I mewl, shaking my head. He ignores me, smashing them to the ground before reaching into the cabinet and retrieving another two. I jump off the table, tears blurring my vision and fling myself at him just as the mugs crash to the ground.
“Stop it!” I yell, clinging to him with all my strength as he tries desperately to push me away.

“Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!” I keep yelling, ignoring his enraged cries and his fingers digging painfully into my arms as he tries to extricate me.

“I am not Adam!” he roars, the sound filling the entire apartment and echoing down the passage. “I am not your husband!” he continues and I turn my head from side to side, refusing to let him go and gasping, “Please Adam,” over and over again like a mantra.

Finally his superior strength wins and he disentangles me, holding me at arm’s length and hissing into my face.
“Adam Parker doesn’t exist, Paige! My name is Simon Harris!”

Something inside of me snaps and I claw at his face, his chest, his clothes, anything I can reach. I hate, hate, hate him right now and all the anger that I feel towards Simon is unleashed on Adam like a river of hot, scalding lava. I feel my nails tearing at his skin as he tries in vain to subdue me, the anger adding a hysterical strength to my efforts. When he finally hits me, it is so hard that I spin almost a full 180 º before landing hard on the tiled floor in a crumpled, broken mess.

“Paige?” Adam’s voice has returned to normal and soft hands are pushing my hair out of my face. My cheek is aching and I lift my hand gingerly, wincing as I touch the bruised area.

“Oh God,” Adam sounds forlorn and I open my eyes to see his beautiful blue eyes gazing down at me with an eternity of regret reflected in their depths. “Paige, I am so, so sorry,” he whispers, and I sit up, feeling a sharp pain in my hand as I do so. I realise that we are both sitting on the shattered remains of the smashed mugs. Adam seems to realise this at the same time and he scoops me up into his arms, treading carefully as he makes his way through the kitchen, then deposits me gently on the sofa.

“I’m sorry,” he repeats leaving my side for a moment. I hear the crunch of him walking through the broken ceramic and the sound of the ice-box opening and then he is back with a frozen bag of peas which he presses up against my cheek.

Blog Tour Stop (Review +Q&A): The Saint (The Original Sinners #5) by Tiffany Reisz

The Saint Banner

Hi everyone!!!

I’m so happy The Saint is finally here!! This was my most antecipated book in the year and when I got my ARC a month or so ago I couldn’t contain myself!

Before I start my review here are some warnings:

  • My Review of The Saint is spoiler-free, but it might contain spoilers for the previous books.
  • You need to read the Red Years books before you read The Saint.
  • The Reading order for she series is: The Siren, The Angel, The Prince and The Mistress. Those are the Red Years books (there are several short stories between them too) and now Tiffany is starting the Whithe Years, which are prequel books  that start with The Saint.

 

The Saint cover

 

My Rating:  10++++++++++++ stars (there are not enougth stars in the sky for this book)

Book Synopsis:

 

In the beginning, there was him. 

Gutsy, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn’t want to break. She’s sick of her mother’s zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she’ll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they’re apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can’t be right. 

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets. 

Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

My Review:

How can you possibly review a book the left such an impression in you that you can’t shut up about it, but you’re also still speechless?

Well, first of all she did it…Tiffany not only topped her previous books, but she topped everything I have ever read in my entire life!

It’s insane how talented she is! And now she gaves us the best gift she could ever give us after she first gave us Nora and Søren…

There’s no words enough in any language to say how good and brilliant Tiffany’s books are! Knowing their story first in the present then in the past has been the best thing for us to figure out the complexity of the characters she made so real for us!I had already loved Søren since The Siren, (yes, at first I thought he was a brute bastard, but he conquered me so fast…) but with The Saint you can fall in love with Soren…we see a different, more playful side of him…and seeing how Nora became Ellie to Nora was such a privilege!

These books are so intelligent, amazing and off the charts the best I’ll probably ever read! I have many different types and diffrent favorite books, and I am not comparing them, there’s no way I could ever compare Tiffany’s story to qnyone elses’s…and I still have many favorite, amazingly written books from which I can’t choose a favorite among them…except for The Original Sinners…they speak to me in a whole different level and dimension…I wish I could unread The Saint just to have the pleasure to keep grinning like an idiot while reading it for the forst time!

Now, with this book I can understand them all so much more…so thank you so much Tiffany, for not only a brilliant book but for the gift to share it with us!!

The Saint was everything I hoped for and even more! Back when I read the Red Years Books (I read The Siren one night and then I read The Angel, The Prince and The Mistress in the next day, all in one setting), after I finished them I contacted Tiffany  and she was awesome to answer me and help me (Thank yo so much Tiffany for helping me understand the series more and I’m sorry if I scared you with my obssession LOL…Later on I found a great support group with my friends who also read the books and we can’t shut up about them!!! – Big shout out to my Sinner girls!!).  And one of the things she told me is that it all would make sense when I read the prequel books, specially that business with Grace and Søren…At first I was in doubt (specially because I’m the most anxious person in the entire planet!!), after all how can a prequel book explain something that happens 20 years after? Well, if anyone can do it, it’s Tiffany!

This book starts with Nora after the events of The Mistress and she tells the story of how she met Søren and became his submissive. At 5% my first reaction was SHOCK and I was crying already! And through the whole book I had this dork smile in my face. Seriously young Søren is AMAZING!

Nora is my favorite female character of all times and getting to know her as a teen was such an incredible gift! She is witty, funny, inquisitive, and so full of life and  wisdom! Adult Nora is already funny, but tennager Nora made me laugh out loud so many times!

And now, younger Søren…well even in book one when we were supposed to think Sørenwas this big bad dom who mistreated Nora, I was already half in love with him, them we get to know him,  and I was done for! Søren is EVERYTHING and he knows it all. We know he loves Nora and how serious he is, but in The Saint we actually see him falling in love with her and it is AMAZING! Søren will make you SWOON, for real! He is super funny and lighter and I absolutely adored him…If this book was a game, Søren would be my MVP for sure!

I’ve never highlighted so many things in a book before. This book made my entire year so far! It really left me with a smile in my face and with a bittersweet feeling and complete contempt! This is the kind of book I live for!

Nora’s tale starts as a fairytale and the start of the journey to where they are today (there are much more to come in the other prequel books) gives us so many hints to why  and how they are who they are now that youfeel like you’re reconnecting to an old friend while reading it!

“Once there lived…” She paused and let the knife of grief stab her stomach again. She took the pain, breathed through it and let it out. “Once there lived…a priest.”

Since the moment he meets Nora, Søren is intrigued by her and Nora is attracked to him like a moth to a flame. She is a daredevil since a teenager and the young, handsome, cool, Ducati owner priest is everhting she wished for and needed…An unlikely friendship is formed between the spunky teen and the priest, but what Nora doesn’t know yet is that her priest is not as pure as she thought, but shen finding out about it, it doesn’t diminishes him in her eyes, on the opposity, he becomes even more real and desirable to her.

I already love Nora as an adult, but teen Nora is someone I could see myself being best friends with. She is even more snarky and sarcastic…She haven’t polished her wit yet and seeing her grow up is just wonderful! Even at such a young age she understands Søren and what he needs of her and not only she understands it, she embraces it and gives him all of her. it was a beautiful thing to see! I feel so honored I got to know them at that time! Tiffany writing is not only amazing but she manages to make you a Sinner along with her characters. It’s not a matter of feeling like they’re your friends or that you are inside the story, it goes beyond that and I don’t even know how to explain, you have to experience it!

Even thought she doesn’t know he is a Sinner yet, she already knows he is different and that he thinks differently than other priest or even other people.

“[...] But it’s not only a question of degree of desire, but what you do with it. If I were to find a young woman stunningly attractive, intriguing and intelligent, then I will not have committed a sin. I could take that to my confessor, and he’d laugh and tell me not to come back and see him until I had something worth confessing. Now, if I acted on my attraction to this young woman, then we might have a problem.”

“Or a really good evening.” She grinned at him.

Søren cocked an eyebrow at her.

“I mean, a really sinful evening.””

 “Better.”

“So it’s okay to desire someone as long as you don’t act on it?”

“There are many situations when acting on one’s desire is not a sin.”

 

Søren trains Nora even without her knowing he is actually training hier to be his partner, to always be by his side, that’s how serisous he was about her even at the beginning. And she was everhting he was missing, but will training Nora change her? By the previous books, we know some of what happened between them and the other characters, but now we can see how and more of what they lived through together.

 “You don’t sin?” Søren sounded so skeptical she would have been insulted if he weren’t entirely right to be that skeptical.

“No, I try not to sin.” Søren closed his eyes and shook his head.

“What?” she asked.

He held up his hand, indicating his need for silence.

“What?” she whispered.

“Do you hear that?”

She tilted her head and listened. “No. I don’t hear anything. Do you hear something?”  she asked Søren.

“I do.”

“What?”

“God laughing at me.”

Eleanor rested her chin on her hand. “You hear God laughing at you?”

“Loudly. I’m quite surprised you can’t hear it.”

There are some passages from the book that show so much better what I try to explain about how much Søren  and Nora are right for each other and love each other! So I’m giving you some of my favorite quotes from them and when I can explain something I will between them:

 “I think you’re dangerous.”

Eleanor sat back on her heels. They’d been joking the entire time they’d been in the sanctuary, but what he’d said and how he’d said it? That was no joke.

“Me? Dangerous?”she repeated. “You. Very.”

“Why?”

“Because you want to be. That’s part of the reason.”

Since she was young, Nora used to write her stories, and some of them were not conventional  but she couldn’t explain why, until she met her master…But although she already wrote, she did not become a professional writer yet. This book show us hightschool Nora and Nora as a freshman at college. It’s not only a book about how she became a submissive, but also about her self-discovery.

“Your mind must be the most marvelous playground.”

I love how Søren is a walking contradiction . As Nora wold say he is the best priest in the wordl. but he is also a sadist, a master, a dom and not only loves tow people, but has sex with them. Well, the way I see it his priesthood just adds to the cactor of perfection in him. It wouldn’t work on any other character than him though. He understand people like no one else and his mind  must be a very intense place to live. He is a completely mind f***ck master!

He takes his role as a priest very seriously and he isn’t perfect, but he truly is the best priest in the world because he doesn’t have sex to sin, he doesn’t it for love and he can see the difference. The wouldn’t be him withouth the priest, but also there wouldn’t be the priest without the Dom in him. He is a good priest because he can also be a dom, he needs the control and he needs the pain, but he is not indulgind in them for the sake of it. No, he only does it when there’s real love in the mix. He can’t not be a priest (even thought he wold give it up for Nora), but he also can’t not be himself.

“Sex  was created by God and He made it pleasurable. But He also made it complicated. I’ve had intercourse with two people in my life, Eleanor. Two. And I will feel a lifelong bond with these people. I won’t make that bond with you until I’m certain you’re ready for it.”

 

 “Eleanor, you joked about us breaking the table during sex. I don’t break furniture during seex. I break people.”

 

Even thought she doesn’t know about  Kingsley and Søren yet, she knows Søren has a past.

 

“I’m not the sort of person who can engage in sex simply to pass the time. The one person I was intimate with as a teenager loved me deeply and made sacrifices to be with me. I exact a certain toll on a person.”

 

I’m sorry but I found this quote above completely sexy! Call me crazy, but well…

Speaking of him, Kinglsey is in this book too. He  he is hilariously amazing and even sweet!

I actually LOVED Kingsley in this book. He doesn’t sound jealous or envious of Nora in this book, because that was my first impression of him in the first books..I only started liking him in The Prince, but in The Saint I loved him. His interactions with Nora were hilarious! And he helps her a lot too.

If you’re not convinced about Kingsley as I wasn’t, this book will make you see him ina different light. The story is more centered in Søren and Noran, but then, there would be no  Søren without Kingsley. In the parts he appears, Kingsley managed to make me like him so much more.

I’m really intrigued to see what comes next for them in The King, the next book in the White Years. Kinglsey and Nora have a complicated relationship, and I feel like it’s more complicated on Kings’s side than Nora’s. The impressin I got in the previous books is that Nora is more open to him than him to hers, but I would love to see why. Because we see that Kingsley finally let go of his jealousy towards Nora, but I want to see how he came from her friend to her enemy. Not that they were ever truly enemies, but he was much, much  less accepting of her than she was of him, at least in the present years. I want to see if Nora was jealous of him as well…

“If you knew King like I did, you would find a way to love him.”

Oh! Griffin also appears in this book and I loved his brief apparition lol Zach, Grace and Julieette are also mentioned, so we do get some answerts, but more like feelings about them than actual answers, but the feelings are good enougth for me, I know  who Søren loves..

And…there’s also a new character! At first I didn’t now what to think about him, I didn’t know if I liked him or not, but now that I understand Nora, Søren and Kingsley more I actually kind of understand this new character. He will be bood for Nora, she needs it!

I love how carefree and young Søren is in this book. He is in love and really funny. Even Kingsley can recognize this. I feel like King can’t help liking and even loving, Nora as well…

“Being a priest…he’s more open with his affections. Being with you…” Kinglsey paused as if the next words didn’t want to come. “Being with you makes him better. Happy. Less troubled. My God, he’s almost…”Kinglsey shook his head. “Almost fun.”

And you know what? No matter if he slept with another person, no matter the outcome, no matter what Nora does with other people. With one sentence Søren can appease al our doubts and anger towards what happened in The Mistress and here it is:

“There is God, there is you and there is Kingsley. Those are my three nonnegotiables. You understand?”

First of all, when he says that to her, it was twenty, TWENTY years before we first met them, so nothing will come between them. Now I know it and understand. Besides, his love for her is so powerful that he even said he would abandom the priesthood. Even thouth it wouldn’t be abandoning God, but well, he was ready to bend a nonnegotiable for her…But yeah, nothing can break them, she will always come back to him and he will always love her.

So now, prepare to SWOON:

 

“Because I’m in love with you and always will be.” 

 

I’m drowing in my own pool of drool here! I wish finding a love that pure and honest would be easier!

“When I was fourteen I decided to become a priest, ” he said. “Once I made that decision I felt peace in my heart for the first time in my life. And I didn’t know why or from where that peace came. It should have scared me – a life of poverty, a life of celibacy and chastity, a life of obedience to a community that could and would send me all over the world. But I knew there was a reason I needed to be a priest I was certain of it. And that certainty carried me all the way through seminary and all the way here. And now I know why I needed to become a priest. Because God knew long before I did that I wold need to be a priest to find you and help you and keep you on the ruight path. And I will keep you safe even if it kills me.”

I absolutely loved how romantic young Søren is on top of being funny. Seeing he falling in love with Nora is a true gift Tiffany is giving us. He put a stupid smile on my face and connecting who they were to who they are now made me smile even more!  This book gives us all we ever wanted in him in the other books.

In here, Kinglsey explain something to Nora, but it’s something we all can learn about them and it can explain a lot to us. They live in a different world, there are no rules to love, there’s just love. Tiffany herself told me that I shouldn’t be jealous of Søren, after all jealousy is the opposite of love. But I don’t mind sharing him with Kingsley and Nora (all all the readers) if it means he exists ;). It’s funny how possessive we get of the characters we love and that is also what make me understand Kingsley more…

“Poly means multi. Amory means love. It’s common in our world, having more than one lover. I don’t mean lover in the sexual sense alone. I mean loving two people.”

 

I love Nora and Søren’s relationship and how they really trust each other, there’s no jealousy between them and that’s what true trust is about. Some people won’t understand how Nora can sleep with so many other people and still be Søren’s  and Søren’s only. Or how can Søren love anothere person beiseds her or how he could sleep with some one who wasn’t Nora or Kingsley…Well I don’t think that you will understand him like I do now withougt reading this prequel books, but Nora sums up for me what  being a Sinner is like perfectly:

“If you stood outside the circle that is Søren and me and our love for each other, you would see me sleeping with dozens of other men in the past twenty years. You sould see him loving someone else, another man who Søren loves as much as he loves me. It makes no sense to anyone outside our circle. But step inside it and you’ll find nothing but love there.”

 

Even though I could talk about this series for an endless ammount of time, I still don’t have the words to say everything I want about it. I have very strong feelings about this books, but I can certaintly say The Saint is my favorite so far! Tiffany created such an incredible and complex story, but at the same time so simple, tyhat it’s impossible to say everhting we want about it.

What I can say is that it left me completely satisfied about it when I finished it and even though I want to read the next prequel books so much, there is nothing left lose in this book. Tiffany never disappoints, she only adds to an already incredible story! So thank you Tiffany, truly from the bottom of my heart for giving me this story to call my favorite of all times! I promise I’m much less desperate about it than when I sent you that email last year.

This is the type of story that stays with you forever and actually the more you keep thinking about it and discussing it wity other poeple, the more you understand them. The feeling I got whikle reading The Saint can not be described, it is an experience. This book is somehting you need experience for yourself to understand what I’m trying to say.I honestly wish  I could unread it just to have that feeling I had while reading it for the first time.

Thank you one more time Tiffany for the vest book of 2014 so far for me!! I think it would only be topped by your next book in the series and even so, it would add to this one,because topping seeing Søren falling in love and being funny and romantic is just gonna be hard!!!

 Q&A WITH TIFFANY REISZ

 

How did the Sinners story first came to your mind?

I had this vision of actor Jason Isaacs tied up and blindfolded. I came up with a story where I could take a guy like Jason Isaacs (a self-described overeducated neurotic Jew) and tie him up. Who would tie him up? A Dominatrix would. Thus Zach and Nora were born. Zach was going through a bad break-up so I decided Nora would have gone through a bad break-up too. Then Søren was born. One idea begat another begat another. Such is the way of inspiration. It’s the snowball effect.

What is your inspiration for Søren and Nora?

Søren is based on God the Father, the Old Testament God. Nora is my unholy Spirit. She’s free. She’s wild. She’s full of life.

(How AWESOME is this answer??? They sure fit the description!!!)

Did Soren truly love “them” equally? He never gave Nora more than she could handle and she never ever used her safe word. But Soren gave King more than he could handle. I understand he loved them both. Also I felt their was significance that he submitted to her but never to King. Would he have submitted to King in the end like he did her?

Søren loves Nora and Kingsley equally, infinitely, and unconditionally. And when you read all the prequels – THE SAINT and THE KING especially – you’ll get more insight into why he treats them differently.

(I can’t freaking WAIT to see more!!!!!!)

 

What is your favorite book and/or author?

I have a lot of favorite books. Short list?

“The Instance of the Fingerpost” by Iain Pears (best mindfuck book ever)

“The Vintner’s Luck” by Elizabeth Knox (most heartbreaking male/male romance ever)

“Cry to Heaven” by Anne Rice (lushest, most erotic historical fiction ever)

If you could use one word to describe the Sinner series and each main character (Søren, Nora, Kingsley, Zach, Grace, Michael, Griff and Wes), what word would it be for each?

Naughty.

 I would like to thank Tiffany and The Novel Tease for this amazing opportunity, specially the Q&A!!!

EXCERPT:

Eleanor and Kingsley meet at last:

It was inevitable no matter how much Søren tried to keep them apart. At last it happened. Kingsley and Eleanor meet at last.

The whistling sound grew closer. Søren took her hand in his.

“Eleanor, allow me to apologize in advance.”

“Apologize? For what?”

“For him.”

“Who? Moi?” asked the man who strolled through the nearest door and right up to them. “I hope I’m interrupting something.”

Eleanor’s eyes widened at the sight of the man.

“I love that reaction.” He pointed at Eleanor’s face. “That is the ‘you didn’t tell me how pretty he was’ look, oui?”

“Didn’t I almost punch you on a set of stairs once?” she asked him.

“You broke into my house. What do you have to say for yourself?”

“You have Eddie Vedder hair,” Eleanor said, which was the only thing she had to say for herself. She was still trying to recover from the shock of the man. He wore the most amazing suit she’d ever seen in her life. Black trousers, riding boots, long black jacket, black and silver embroidered vest. He had dark shoulder-length hair and a face that belonged on a male model. And to make matters even worse, he was French. So this was the brother-in-law? The best friend? The Kingsley?

He picked up her hand as if to kiss the back of it, but at the last second he raised her fingertips to his nose and sniffed them. She pulled her hand back.

“So this is elle?”

“This is she. Eleanor, this is Kingsley. Kingsley, Eleanor. Now please go back to the rectory, Kingsley, before Eleanor starts liking you.”

“Liking me more than you, you mean. Too late. Isn’t it?”

“You are seriously French,” she said.

“Would you like to see how French I am?” He imposed himself between her and Søren and stared down at her with the most seductive expression she’d ever seen on the face of a man with all his clothes on.

“Kingsley, please,” Søren said.

“I’m not talking to you. I’m talking to her.”

Kingsley stepped even closer.

“How old are you?” he asked her.

“Seventeen. How old are you?”

“Thirty. Is your hymen intact?”

Eleanor stood up straighter.

“Is your brain intact?”

“I ask for a reason.” He shook his finger in her face to hush her. “I fucked a virgin last week. I didn’t mean to.”

“What happened? You trip and fall into her hymen?”

“You jest but do you know how hard it is to get blood off raw silk upholstery?” Kingsley asked, sounding positively perturbed. “She could have told me before I fucked her. I would have put a towel down first. But c’est la guerre. What’s the etiquette for accidentally fucking a virgin? Should I send flowers? If I fucked you and broke your hymen what would you want from me after?”

“Hair of the dog that bit me?” Eleanor suggested her father’s favorite hangover cure. “Fuck me again?”

Kingsley looked her up and down. He seemed to like what he saw.

“Would you like to play a round of Justine and the naughty monk with me?”

“Never heard of it.”

“I swear I will have you arrested,” Søren said to Kingsley. He sounded stern but Eleanor saw amusement in his eyes.

“Have you ever read Justine by Le Marquis de Sade? Wonderful book. Little twelve-year-old Justine runs away to a monastery and the monks rape her and subject her to orgies and beatings over and over again. So that’s how you play the game. Shall we?”

“How do we know who wins?”

“Whoever has lost the least blood by the end of the game wins.”

“Sounds fun,” Eleanor said. “I’ll play the monk. You play Justine.”

“Why, Kingsley,” Søren said in a taunting tone, “it’s like she knows you already.”

Kingsley only gazed at her a moment and she sensed him taking stock of her. The smile left his face, the amusement disappeared from his eyes. In a warning tone the man addressed Søren.

“You are asking for so much trouble with this one, mon ami.”

“He didn’t ask for trouble,” Eleanor interjected. “I offered.”

Kingsley nodded his approval.

“You weren’t exaggerating,” he said to Søren.

Søren put his mouth near Kingsley’s ear.

“I told you so,” Søren said in a stage whisper.

“Can I have her?” Kingsley asked. Søren replied something in French, something that made Kingsley grin even more broadly.

“What did he say?” she asked Kingsley.

“He said, ‘Wait your turn.’”

She glared at Søren, who only shrugged as if Kingsley had lied to her. She knew he hadn’t.

“She doesn’t like my translation.”

“She should learn French,” Søren said. Kingsley nodded his agreement.

“Hello!” Eleanor waved her hands. “I’m still here. I can hear you both talking about me. And you, I can see you giggling.” She stabbed the center of Søren’s chest with her finger.

He gave her an affronted look.

“Priests don’t giggle.”

“What are you looking at?” she demanded of Kingsley, who seemed to be undressing her with his eyes.

“She’s spirited, this one,” Kingsley said to Søren.

“Unholy spirited,” Søren agreed.

Kingsley turned his attention back to her.

“Why do you have your clothes on?”

“Was I supposed to take them off?”

“I’ve never heard a stupider question in my life,” he said with a very French, very disgusted sigh. “You weren’t supposed to have them on to start with.”

“I get it,” Eleanor said to Kingsley. “I do. You’re Prince Charming if Prince Charming wasn’t charming.”

“And wasn’t a prince but a king.”

Kingsley raked her body with his eyes. She might have been embarrassed by his nakedly hungry stare but he had a French accent, Eddie Vedder hair and the power to annoy Søren. The man got a free pass to make a pass.

Kingsley finally spoke again.

“I could lose my watch inside you.”

(See what I told you about King and Nora being hilarious!!! I love how the three of them sound so carefree!!!)

Cover Reveal: Unexpected by Amy Marie

 
 
SYNOPIS:
At twenty-seven Erin Decker has the perfect life; a thriving career, a dream home
she shares with her best friend Noelle, and a secure relationship with Robert,
her handsome and faithful boyfriend. Or so she thinks.
When her visions of a marriage proposal are met with the ultimate betrayal, Erin finds
herself in the arms of sexy and strong-willed distraction, Walker Prescott.
Her summer becomes life changing as she realizes Walker has left her with a tiny piece of
himself and no way to find him…until he suddenly shows up and turns her world
upside down.
Can she let go of her past to make way for a future she never saw coming?
Can Walker be exactly what Erin needs?
Will he give her the perfect life she so desperately craves in the most unexpected way?
EXCERPT:
 
“What’s in the bag?” I ask while slamming the grade book closed earning his attention.
 
“You look so hot Erin. I’m having a really hard time keeping my hands off of you right now.”  He says finally pulling a green apple out of the bag.
 
Turning around, he says goodbye and heads towards the door as the second bell rings. My classroom is still empty and my hormones are on high Walker alert.
 
“Why a green apple, Walker? Aren’t apples for teachers typically red?” I call out before he hits the doorway.
 
Without missing a beat he spins around, arms braced on the doorframe, and I’m met with lust filled eyes.
His black polo stretching as far as it will go across his heaving chest. “I’ve
heard green makes you horny.”
 
“You don’t need anything green to get me horny, Walker. All you have to do is walk into a room,” I state, and by his expression I can tell he wasn’t expecting that to come out of my mouth.
 
Pushing off the frame he stalks towards me like a man on a mission. As soon as he is a breath away his palms wrap around my neck pulling his mouth to mine. This kiss is different than the atmosphere. It’s gentle, fueled by passion, and sexy as hell. At any moment we could be caught but I don’t care. My no touching below the belt rule is killing me and my dreams are getting more and more persistent. I want him
and I want him here. Now.
 
Dragging himself away from me with a pained look he smiles and I realize he just doesn’t want to stop.
“You surprise me Erin. At every turn I am taken by surprise and I love it.”
He walks backwards and runs his hands through his hair. “I’m falling for you,
baby. Hard. Real hard.”
 
And he’s gone before he can hear me whisper “me too.”

Release Day Blitz: Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey

Hey everyone!!

photo (38)

 

BLURB:

What started out as a joke— seduce Coach Wilder—soon became a goal she had to score.

With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing nineteen-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He’s a professional soccer player, America’s favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper.

• A face that makes girls weep – check.
• Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) – check.
• Enough confidence to shift the earth’s gravitational pull – double check.

Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits . Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear. (i.e. “Score with Coach Wilder anywhere other than the field and you’ll be cut from the team faster than you can count his tattoos.”) But that just makes him all the more enticing…Besides, Kinsley’s already counted the visible ones, and she is not one to leave a project unfinished.

Kinsley tries to play the game her way as they navigate through forbidden territory, but Liam is determined to teach her a whole new definition for the term “team bonding.”

A fun & sexy New Adult Romance (age 17+)

 

EXCERPT:

But just before she stepped inside, I heard the same sexy voice that I’d heard the previous night— the voice that said, I’m sexy and I know it.

“Morning ladies.”

Every single girl froze and we turned in unison. Liam Wilder was standing a few feet away wearing workout gear and a friendly smile. Of course his friendly smile could easily be misconstrued for a take-your-panties-off smile, so it’s a wonder we all managed to mutter shocked hellos. I guess he’d pulled up in the parking lot a few minutes after we did. I peered behind him and saw a black Mercedes SUV parked in the spot closest to the field house. A photographer was snapping pictures on the other side of the fence. Jeez, they wake up this early to get pictures of him?

“Oh, hi Liam.” Tara smiled wide.

I shot Becca a gag-me face.

“You guys should probably call me Coach Wilder while we’re at practice,” he admonished. I had to fight to keep from cracking up. The shocked look on Tara’s face was absolutely priceless, but it still wasn’t enough to make me forget the awkwardness of the situation.

I couldn’t look up at him. The last time we’d spoken, I’d literally asked him to show me his tattoos, which we both knew really meant I wanted him to show me his soccer balls. Hah. I’d have to tell Becca that one later. I tugged her and Emily forward without acknowledging Liam and headed for the conference room. Thankfully, Coach Davis was there already and Liam didn’t follow us in.
