Irrevocable (#1)

99 cents for a limited time!
Irrevocable front

Sometimes when you can’t go back, the only way out is to descend into the darkness.
my Captor
When I woke in that place, I just wanted to survive. But survival came at a cost, for which they demanded my will and body.
my Master
With pain came acceptance. Fully-dependent on the man who claimed me, I learned to appreciate what I had-life and relative safety.
my Protector
I watched him spill blood and tend my injuries. With betrayal came a revelation.
The only way out was to bring them all down or die trying.

Excerpt:

Copyright 2014, Skye Callahan

My head ached and I slumped against the wall, rubbing my temple. Between the pain and swelling in my body and the fog threatening to reclaim my mind, each breath and thought became more and more of a struggle.

“Do you remember what happened?” Kirk asked, keeping his voice low—almost calmingly low. A misleading façade to hide whatever beast he locked inside.

I shook my head, unwilling to give into his mock concern.

The elevator halted and my stomach slammed into the lungs, adding to my nausea. I feared I’d lose its contents for a moment, but I managed to swallow as Kirk dragged me out of the elevator and down a hall.

“What is this place?”

“Quiet,” he hissed, wrenching my arm.

“Please, just—”

He hauled me around to face him, lifting me by my upper arms. “Not listening is a good way to get yourself killed here, which is exactly what would have happened if I hadn’t come downstairs to see what trouble our resident dipshits had dragged in. You have yet to be ripped to pieces or to be removed of your ability to speak. If you want to keep it that way, I suggest that you learn to obey simple commands. Shut up.”

I clenched my jaw. I didn’t want to admit the truth in what he said, but with every breath I took, my ribs sent a sharp reminder of what could happen. Regardless of that warning, my brain didn’t stop screaming. All I wanted to do was go home, where neither of us would have to worry about my body parts being ripped off. But, I nodded, and he pulled me forward so quickly I tripped over my own feet and wouldn’t have stayed upright if not for his grasp.

Reviews:

You HAVE to read this book. It really is one of the best that I have read in a while, and definitely one of the best of 2014. It has everything I look for in a dark read. The twist that the author throws in is, just wow. I just cannot emphasis just how much I love this book!”
★★★★★ Alicia, Mean Girls Luv Books

“Not only did Irrevocable gut me, it took me on a roller coaster ride full of emotions that I usually don’t experience while reading romances…. You start to hate, you start to sympathize, and you begin to fall in love in every way. Ms. Callahan has turned my world upside down with her writing. Dark, sensual, and at times overwhelming, Irrevocable will bring you on a dark journey that you will never forget..” (read more…)
★★★★★ Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads TOP PICK of 2014!

99cent-2“Finally a good DARK read, that has it ALL!!
The characters are well developed and believable, the story-line is intriguing, the “dark” factor was HIGH but at the same time there were “light” points…. This is really a story of survival and overcoming obstacles. It’s a story of trust and safety and honor and ultimately, love.
Overall – the characters drew me in, the situation jangled my nerves, the sexy scenes were HOT, and the story just blew me away.” (read more…)
★★★★★ Shelby, Wicked Reads

“Beautifully written! Great characters and story line. Skye made me a fan of dark reads. A must read for all who dare to step out of the light and into the darkness!” (read more…)

VANDAL (Ashes & Embers #2) by Carian Cole

amazon[1]

She takes my breath away; she is so beautifully damaged.
Yes I had broken her, ravished her life, destroyed her happiness. I brought her to ultimate despair. I was responsible for all the pain and suffering that now brought her to her knees in front of me.
Broken.
Hopeless.
Reckless in her agony.
She is a mirror of my own tortured soul.
But what I took away I can give back.
In ways she cannot even begin to imagine.
She is everything right in all my wrongs.
She loves me. She needs me.
She has no idea I’m the one who wrecked her life.

♫MY REVIEW♫

Vandal (Ashes & Embers #2) by Carian Cole
Vandal & Tabitha
GONNA GET VANDALIZED REAL SOON!!!

Hmmm… well, I took a 48 hour hiatus prior to sitting down to write this review. My emotions were so peeked that I needed to straighten out my thoughts before I blew through this and didn’t do it justice. I’m not even sure at this point my evaluation of this book will do it justice, but here it goes.

I was enthralled with Vandal. His way of life, his appearance, his quirks, and his downfalls. Something about a self destructive musician that I just can’t seem to stay away from. This book will take you to places you’ve never been. When you get there, it’ll rip your heart out, send you into a tailspin, and keep pushing you till you have nothing left. Don’t mistake me, this story is everything you need to feel just about every emotion a human can. I cried, I laughed, and I even had to change my panties a time or two! There is so much angst and torment that tore me apart and put me back together that I think I am now ready for my meds on the psych ward!

Vandal is a complex man. To say “He has issues” would be an understatement. His predicament starts long before his story does. He seems to have every psychological problem known to man! He’s afraid of commitment, he doesn’t like to be touched, he has a substance abuse problem, he doesn’t trust a soul, and well, for lack of a better word, he’s just plain old stubborn. Now, onto his good qualities… He’s hotter than hot, he’s six foot four, and he has hair that goes on forever. I’m sold! He also (without knowing it) is pretty damn comical. I honestly think the tragedies that happen to him (even though heartbreaking) were much need to snap him out of his exhausted lifestyle and meaningless relationships. Once he realized that we are all products of our past, but we don’t need to be prisoners of it, he seemed to shine brighter and stand taller and love deeper. God I love this man! I submit to him in every way!

“You’re exhausted and too thin” I follow him to the kitchen and help him take the stuff out of the bags.  It feels strangely domestic and familiar. “I thought men liked thin.” He winks at me and my insides melt for days. “I like some curves so I can hold onto you. You’re way too skinny. My dick weighs more than you.” ~Vandal & Tabitha convo

Tabitha is so beautifully fucked up. She makes me want to hold her, cradle her, and whisper in her ear that life will get better, just hold on baby. It’s funny how two people with similar issues can make each other well again. She is on the verge of despair. She is holding on my a thread. Her life may as well be over and she’s found someone to help her with that or so she thinks. Think again missy! There’s this happy life lying underneath this broke shell of a woman and Tabitha just doesn’t know how to get back to her. A person that likes pumpkin ice cream and cookies, now settles for coffee and crackers. Her transformation is one of exhilarating triumph and I’m glad I had a front row seat to the show.

“My list is much more boring than yours. I like soft music, reading, art, angels, nature, photography… and big long-haired guys with control issues” ~Tabitha to Vandal

Great supporting characters in Vandal’s little brother Lukas. He’s a much needed support system to his brother and just about anyone else that needs his assistance. I can’t wait to read more about him. Even our little Evie from Storm makes her presence known with her contribution to Vandal and Tabitha’s transformation in that beautiful, loving, and adorable little kitty Sterling. Sterling is by far my favorite supporting character and he never uttered a word… just some motoring sounds! Prrrrrrr…..

This book will take you from heartbreak to heartache. It will make you laugh out loud, ugly cry, and everything in-between the fucked up folds of it’s pages. I have never felt so much emotion and passion towards a book. This family of musicians and their loved ones will soon become a part of your life, your family and you won’t want to miss a single tear, a day of turmoil, or a gust busting laugh. The pacing is fast and first class. The dialogue flows with proficiency and feels authentic and genuine. Carian Cole has knocked it out of the park once again with another one of her out of this world additions to the Ashes and Embers series.

The calm before the storm…
I lived in the quiet stillness.
I felt the wind rustle, warning me, telling me to get out of its path.
But I didn’t.
I never stood a chance.
A series of weather and road mishaps leaves me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger. In the back of a pickup truck. For forty-eight freakin’ hours.
A stranger with long hair, tattoos, and rippling with muscle.
A stranger with an insanely sexy voice and a wicked smile that turned my insides to jelly.
A stranger who held me in his arms, calmed me, and then set a fire in me that I couldn’t put out.
Storm lives up to his name. Beautiful. Dangerously inviting. Tumultuous. Dark. A clash of hot and cold.
He’s used to getting everything he wants.
And now he wants me.
Some people chase storms for the beautiful thrill. What happens when the storm chases you?

WHERE TO STALK… I MEAN FAN-GIRL CARIAN…LOL

carian[1]

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published on September of 2014. Vandal, the second novel in this series is publishing in February of 2015. I currently have approximately nine books slated for this series, as well as an MC series in the works, and a few stand-alones coming in 2015 onward.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.

Tristan Girls Gone Wild Teaser

 

excerpt

I wasn’t always an asshole, or at least that’s what I liked to tell myself. The truth is I had been this way since I was an adolescent. My sister reminded me of it every day, especially during my teen years. I couldn’t help that I enjoyed looking at tits and pussy. Looking at them made my dick hard and that usually resulted in one of her friends sucking me off.

I loved it when her friends spent the night—that was the bonus of having a sister. Otherwise, she was just a complete pain in the ass, always bitching about how fat she was or how some guy dumped her because she wouldn’t put out. It pissed me off, because one, she was annoying as fuck, and two, because any guy that touched my sister would get the shit kicked out of him, by me.

Her friends though, they were free reign and mine for the taking, and trust me when I tell you, I took them. Anya was by far my favorite and the first girl that I’d ever sunk my dick in. She was older than me by two years. She could fuck like a porn star and suck the chrome off a bumper. That girl left me with the wettest dreams and when I was finally legal, she rocked my whole fucking world.

God, I love Steph… she’s all calm and collected on the inside, but dig deeper and she’s a hot and steamy freak who isn’t afraid to tell you how it is… or how it’s going to be!!!

✦✧MY REVIEW✧✦

TRIZTAN (Russian Roulette #1) by Alyson Raynes
OH, SO GOOD!

When I imagine Tristan Petrovsky and the Russian Roulette series, my mind automatically takes me to Dolph Lundgren playing Ivan Drago in Rocky 4, “I must break you!” I had the hots for Dolph back then because of his mysteriousness and sexier than sin bod and that’s exactly how I feel about Tristan. He’s mysterious, he’s sexy as hell, and he likes to fuck… a lot. There is so much going on in this book besides the fact that our lead male character is a manwhore. There’s suspense, loss, hilarity, and so much turmoil. this spin off from The Fixer series will have you reeling for days.

Tristan or Triztan, however you want to spell it is so complex. He’s (in a sense) like Michael Corleone from the Godfather. He tries so hard to make a life for himself outside the family business, but no matter how hard he tries… “They pulled him back in!” Tristan is a very level headed guy. He takes what he wants and has no regrets. Through his adolescent years of life in Russia, to the college life at school in Colorado he never lost who he was or where he came from. Through his loss and the distance between him and his old life, he never wavered. He stole my heart and he’ll steal yours too. Just give him the time of day and maybe a piece of ass and you’re in!

So, the supporting character cast is enormous in this book. I’ll start with Anya. She’s perfect. I loved her from the very beginning. She’s like Tristan in may ways. Must be that Russian mentality! She gave Tristan everything she had and although at times that may have not been enough, she’s good with whatever decisions he’s made. Onto Stephanie… Well, she was a breath of fresh air. She’s comical, beautiful, and smart. I honestly thought she was just right for Tristan. She’s a third grade teacher and if I’m not mistaken, she taught Tristan a few things also… and not classroom stuff! Damn that girl was freaky! So, the next character on my list is Dylan. He’s a great friend! The best actually. He befriends Tristan in college and the rest is history from there for these two.

Ya know, after reading The Fixer series with Dylan and Tristan, I wasn’t sure where Tristan’s story was going to pick up. Before, During, or after… well, it seems to play right along side The Fixer series. How cool is that?!? A lot before it and a little during it. Wow, who knew while reading The Fixer series that there was another story unfolding there.

To wrap this up… The storyline is excellent. It keeps you glued to it’s pages. Tristan is one of those books where you keep saying to yourself “One more chapter” and 4 chapters later at 1AM you’ll finally put it down so you can get some sleep. The pacing is superior. The dialogue flows and feels natural. The highs and lows are plentiful and the climax is absolutely breathtaking. It’s 200 (Kindle version) pages long and for this reader… amazing!
