SYNOPSIS

It began with a look.

Just one, thrown my way. A mad, dizzying rush of desire cracking across the patio, bouncing around my friends, ignoring everything but the heat bubbling between his eyes and mine.

That’s when Quinn O’Malley came into my life.

We were inevitable.

We were senseless.

He wrecked me.

He saved me.

I still haven’t recovered.

Sayo McIntyre didn’t want the complications that came with Quinn O’Malley.

But life doesn’t care what we want. It gives us what we need.

CATCHING SERENITY is the last full-length novel in the Serenity Series.

This is a multi-media novel with illustrations from RN Laing. Trigger warnings: real damn life.

CATCHING SERENITY EXCERPT

Quinn grabs the sketch from the floor, waving it at me like a threat. “This? This proves that I see beyond the surface otherwise you wouldn’t have sat there staring at it for ages, would you?”

Some of my anger eases, dips down in the pit of my stomach as I watch him. He’d just revealed more of himself, unintentionally, than he ever had before, and there was no way I’d let that bit of information go without comment. “How do you know how long I looked at it?” He walks away, stepping backward, like he’s only just realized what a slip he made, but I follow, edging him toward the door. “Is that what you’re always going to do, Quinn?” He is almost gone. “Run away because you’re scared?”

“I’m not scared of anything.” He takes a step, shoulders back, ready for a fight. “Not a fecking thing.”

“Yeah? Then why are you leaving? Because I upset you?” I grab his arm when he turns, making him face me. “Because I made you admit how empty your life is?”

Quinn won’t look at me, seems to prefer to keep as much distance between us as possible and I almost let him leave, figuring that he’ll argue with me all night if I allow it. But the emptiness, the need to seek out what is missing in his life from my little cousin, is a warning sign, a flag of caution that tells me he is hurting, far more than he lets on. It’s not unusual, something that everyone else on the planet is going through, but Quinn is the one around Rhea. Quinn is the one that has opened a chasm in our lives just by being here.

When I step forward, he retreats further until he is against the door. His swagger is gone. His attitude missing. Standing before me is a scared boy, one who swallows thickly, who blinks as though he isn’t sure what’s about to happen. I’ve never seen Quinn like this. I’ve never seen him as open, as raw as when I reach for him, extending my fingers so that they hoover next to his cheek.

“What are you doing?” He grabs my wrist, but his grip, his defense is weak.

“Seeing how scared I can make you.”

He doesn’t move when I touch him. Quinn holds his breath when I move my fingers across his face. His cheeks are arched, the bones long and supple and he shakes, the tips of his hair moving the closer I get to him. He doesn’t resist me, but his back stiffens when I kiss him, barely putting any pressure at all against his mouth. It’s only when I move his face, when I slip the slightest hint of tongue against his mouth that Quinn makes a sound at all. And then, he responds, like someone has turned a switch in his brain, given him permission to respond. Quinn moves his hands up my back, threading his fingers in my hair, yanking so that my head comes back, but our mouths stay connected. He towers over me, his body moving, grazing against mine.

We become motion, heat. I sink further and further into the abyss, forgetting who I am, what I’m supposed to be. There is only Quinn’s mouth against mine and those low, primal sounds that lift from his throat. His breath coats my neck, his fingers dip, they spread against my skin, down the slope of my back, up to tweak and cup my breast.

Against my hip, I feel the thick outline of his dick and shudder against him, tightening my fingers into his shirt as Quinn grinds, pushes himself into me harder and harder. He doesn’t stop, isn’t cautious or kind and pushes me up, holding my ass against his squeezing fingers, our bodies coming together, needy, gripping like something desperate, something inevitable.

“Feck,” he mutters so low that I barely make out the curse. He is breathless, desperate and I feel it in every swipe of his mouth, his tongue along my skin and the gripping possession of his hands pulling my leg up to his hip, settling me so close that our centers meet over and over, teasing, promising.

My thoughts are clearer now. There is only sensation and that drive to complete, to finish, a will older than any of us and it is this Quinn who matches me. Quinn who helps me loosen the tight hold I have on everything weighing me down. There is no logic to this. There is only need and that ancient inclination to fill it.

It’s only then, right at that moment, that I realize the past few hours, fighting with him, insulting each other, was the first time in two years Rhea didn’t consume my thoughts and the smallest hint of suggestion flirts in my mind. Quinn had done that, his words, his anger, then his touch, had all numbed me to the sense of loss, to the one thing I prayed every day I could avoid.

I break the kiss, pushing on his chest to catch my breath. “You… you let me forget,” I tell him, a little out of my mind with lust, then stoned completely when Quinn moves his tongue across my neck, biting gently against my collarbone.

“I can make you forget, Sayo…we can forget together.”

But I can’t forget, not completely. Quinn is a bully, a liar unwilling to share who he is with anyone but a dying girl. This thing between us, whatever it is, is a Band Aid, not a fix and no matter how good he feels, no matter how strong that drive is, it will not answer my questions or keep the nightmare that approaches at bay. But maybe, just maybe, it will be enough.

“Tell me,” I say, holding him back when he presses forward, needy for my mouth, anxious to taste my skin again. “Why did you draw that?”

Quinn stops, staring down at me, watching my face closely for something he doesn’t mention. “Why does it matter?”

“I need to know.”

Nodding once, Quinn drops my legs, pushes off from the door, and moves away from my body with only a brief touch of his fingertips on my face before he jerks his hand away and moves me aside to open the door. “Get used to disappointment.” And then, he slams the door behind him as he leaves, taking the warmth of his body and the promise of what he could give me.

Rebound by Chelle Bliss

Sam & Fiona

IN LOVE WITH NOLA ALL OVER AGAIN!!!

Okay seriously folks, I must have been living under a rock to not know that this story was about Flash from all those wonderful Gallo books in the Men of Inked series.   It short and sweet and as hot as fucking hell. I pride myself on being a Chelle Bliss fan-girl and I can’t believe this one flew under my radar.   Shhhh… don’t tell Chelle!!!

Sam or in the other series he’s called Flash was one of those characters that I wasn’t sure how I felt about him. I liked him, I hated him and now I absolutely love him. I have a feeling that he’s slowly burrowing under my skin and taking up permanent residence. He’s in NOLA to put his past behind him… namely that cray cray Izzy Gallo, but what he doesn’t expect is a breath of fresh air to waltz into his life at the Funky Pirate! Enter, Fiona!

Fiona is all kinds of deception. On the outside she seems pure and innocent but on the inside she’s a freak and I love her completely for it. She’s a nurse by trade and I don’t mind saying that she could patch me up anytime.   She doesn’t see to need the same thing Sam does. I think she’s already found herself, she just needs her other half to make her whole again. She’s funny, she’s witty, and she a sex on a stick!! One of my favorite parts in the story was when Fiona took Sam for a walk through the city and stumbled upon the old lady in the square. Eye opening and jaw dropping! I wanna go to NOLA just to have my fortune read by that old lady!!!

This is a great little spin-off novella from the Men of Inked series. I enjoyed it immensely. The pacing is perfect, the dialogue flows with absolute expertise and is oh so sexy and nasty. You can find this tasty little number in the Night Shift Anthology.

Wanting To Forget by Toni Aleo 

Jordie & Kacey 

STUPID HOCKEY PLAYERS

This novella packs quite a punch. It’s very fast paced and gives you the insight you will need when you read the full novel on Jordie and Kasey.   Although I don’t agree with half of the shit that went down in this novella, it was well written.

Jordie is a man-whore in the truest sense of the word. He’s a hockey player recovering from a broken leg but still manages to drink himself into a stupor and fuck anything with a hole. I hate that he seems to think that’s just how is life should go instead of seeing and doing the obvious. He’s in love but won’t let his heart be with the one he longs for. So in turn he sticks his dick anywhere and everywhere. Yeah, like that will help you to forget! NOT!

I don’t really know what to say about Kacey as she does not have a lot of dialogue or parts in this novella. From what I know of her… her head is screwed on tight, she knows exactly what she wants out of life, and she’s not afraid to go after what she wants. I’m sure we’ll learn more about her in the full length novel.

The supporting character cast in this book was what made it good for me. Pierre, the dude from the other hockey team that shows Jordie a good time at his party was a total douche. Quite honestly I feel that he may have been trying to sabotage Jordie.   Karson, Jordie’s best friend and Kacey’s brother seems to be the only one of these dudes that has his shit together.   If only Jordie would listen to him.

the pacing is swift, the dialogue flows with efficiency and plenty of humor, and the writing style was effortless to read. I will be looking for more Jordie in Kacey in the future.

Healing Touch by Brenda Rothert 

Joss & Carson

MAGIC 8 BALL, WILL THIS NOVELLA BECOME A BOOK…. 

betternot

This little novella was very lovable and very endearing. The characters seem to be broken and in need of a fix. When they come together everything just seems to click.   This story has wit, good strong sexual content, and a good base to build on.

Jocelyn   “Joss” is jaded and in need of some serious one on one time with a dick. She’s good at what she does and her heart is completely in it.   Where her heart needs to be completely in it is within herself and that’s just lacking. She seemed to me like a very fun loving kind of girl who would do anything for you if you were her friend. A very genuinely likeable character.

I find it funny how Carson seemed very quiet and somewhat of a recluse. However, the moment he sees Joss she seems to pull him out of his hermit crab shell. Pretty much what he does for her. He’s very mysterious and I’m sure there’s more story there regarding his background, his present, and his future. Will we find out?

The supporting character cast in this novella is small. Haddie, Jocelyn’s coworker and friend is by far my favorite, although some of those girls working on different floors of the hospital crack me up when they talk about Carson. Haddie he just seems very true and honest and tells Joss like it is. Every girl needs a friend like that.

The pacing is excellent and keeps your immersed in the story. I found the characters very relatable, and the story itself very compelling. It’s a novella, so the read is very quick, but there is so much packed into these few pages. Hang on tight… the ride may be a little bumpy!

Synopsis
 
She left glitter in his AC vents. He put green dye in her conditioner.
 
She buttered his bathroom floor, and he kidnapped her precious puppy.
 
Layla Mullens hates Donovan Donley. His crude language, his wide shoulders, his crystal blue eyes…she hates that she can’t stop herself. 
From kissing him or landing in his bed.
 
And Donovan Donley wants nothing more than to knock Layla off her princess pedestal. He hates her stuck up attitude and her soft, tempting lips. He especially hates that her father is his coach. 
 
But he’s fine with their arrangement—act horrible to each other during the day, attack each other naked at night. It works. 
 
But one night changes everything. When Layla doesn’t show, and Donovan’s cold bed stays empty, the lies he tells himself to keep Layla out of his mind aren’t enough to keep him from missing her. And needing her. Something he promised himself would never happen.
