memories should be buried…
blackouts started happening when I was eight. There are long periods of my
youth I don’t remember. I’ve woken up in strange places, feeling disoriented
and unaware of how long I’ve been out.
two years abroad attending a private school and sessions with a top-notch
psychiatrist, I’ve been deemed cured. The blackouts have ceased, or so I
thought, until I wake up in a ditch back home in North Carolina. Dare, the guy
pulling my broken body from the wreckage, has a restraining order against him.
He’s no longer the clean-cut boy I went frog gigging with but road-hardened.
His lean, muscular arms, riddled with tats, drag me out of the SUV. I should
fear him, but instead, his touch sparks memories that tell me I once worshipped
him with all my heart.
I enjoyed this book!
This is my 1st time reading a book from Chris Myers.
I like the way she set up the characters and plot in this book. You think you know what is going to happen but then Myers throws you for a loop and totally surprises you.
This book had a good combination of suspense, mystery, hotness, sexiness with a psychological thriller all rolled into one.
Teal and Dare are on hot couple. Their romance is a steamy one. Was fanning myself every time they hooked up in this book.
I liked that while reading this book, I could not help but keep second guessing myself of who was the bad egg in the bunch of characters and who was the one I could trust. The end had me floored! Loved that!
Love me a good mystery book & glad I had an opportunity to read this author's work! I will be checking out her other books she has written.
Get this book if you want to read a steamy mystery read for the summer!

Very excited to announce a brand new stand-alone from NYT Bestselling author Karina Halle!
She thinks he's an arrogant playboy.
He thinks she's an uptight prude.
But he's about to make her an offer she can't refuse.
Nicola Price used to have it all – a great career, the perfect boyfriend, an excessive shoe collection and an apartment in one of San Francisco’s best neighborhoods. But when she gets knocked up and her asshat boyfriend leaves her high and dry, Nicola’s perfectly crafted world comes tumbling down. And stays that way.
Now, Nicola is the proud single mom to a five-year old daughter and living a giant lie. She can barely afford their ghetto apartment and all the men she dates run when they hear she comes with a child. She’s struggling and scared – and nowhere near where she thought she’d be at age thirty-one.
Her saving grace comes in the form of a tall, handsome and wealthy Scotsman Bram McGregor, the older brother of her friend Linden. Bram understands a thing or two about pride, so when tragic circumstances place Nicola at rock bottom, he offers them a place to live in the apartment complex he owns. It’s pretty much the perfect deal, so as long as she doesn’t mind living beside Bram, a man that, despite his generosity, seems to antagonize her at every turn.
But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought.
She might just lose her heart.
Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble...
With her USA Today Bestselling The Artists Trilogy published by Grand Central Publishing, numerous foreign publication deals, and self-publishing success with her Experiment in Terror series, Vancouver-born Karina Halle is a true example of the term "Hybrid Author." Though her books showcase her love of all things dark, sexy and edgy, she's a closet romantic at heart and strives to give her characters a HEA...whenever possible.Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she’s preparing for the zombie apocalypse with her husband and rescue pup.
A murderer’s child…A foster child…A troubled teen…Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega has never had an easy life. Being shuffled from one foster home to another after his father murdered his mother, he found himself in and out of trouble with the law. Never giving a damn about himself, let alone anyone else, his life was spiraling out of control; fast. Until one man and one sport changed everything.
Frankie Carbone taught Saint how to handle his anger and rejection; by fighting it out in the ring. On his way to stardom, Saint finds himself pushed into the spotlight and into the arms of more women than he can ever imagine; he’s completely content with one night stands and random sex.
Then Salem Harris comes walking into his life and changes his game plan. Saint finds himself wanting Salem in all the ways that scare him. She is off limits; taken. But that doesn’t stop Saint from going after what he wants, and he wants her.
Frankie showed Saint a new way of life with Boxing, but will Salem give him the one thing he's never known – love? Will Saint find himself fighting for the one thing he thinks he doesn't deserve or will Salem end up breaking his heart? Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega has had to fight for every good thing he's gotten in his life.
This story delivered on setting us up into the world of fighter Gabriel "The Saint" Vega. I fell for him right away! He acts tough but has a HUGE heart!
I liked it a lot that this story was more than just about a guy and girl getting together.
Heartbreak, cheating, loyalty, finding one self, trust, making bad decisions, falling in love....yep this book has it all.
When I started the book, my heart broke for Gabriel and his brother Jase. They don't start their lives well. The book then goes into their lives as adults years later and we get to see how they turned out. Being a box fighter now, Gabriel gets an opportunity to be sponsored by a big shot guy named Blaine & that is when his life changes when he meets Salem.
Salem seems like a challenge to Gabriel at first, but he soon finds out, he doesn't want to just be with her, he wants more. Their chemistry was hot and also had me giggle at times of how they both seemed to hold back on their feelings towards one another with acting out and being over dramatic. We all do that and can relate.
I am looking forward to Book#2 in this series. I want to know what happens next! Thank goodness the next book will be here soon.
Go get this book and fall for "The Saint"!

I took a deep breath as my fingers found their purchase and pulled out my keys. The key I needed somehow hit home and the lid sprang open, the knives staring at me, daring me. I watched them, waited for them to tell me what to do, but nothing came. They laid still, gleaming in the moonlight waiting for me too, it seemed. I sat in the passenger side seat, one boot still on the gravel, and made the first move. Raising a trembling hand toward the temptation, my fingers felt the cool length of each blade.
The rage still burned in my veins and I felt myself sobering, hesitating. No, I kept hearing. Pick them up, a voice said, so I did. Their weight felt good in my hands, comfortable. I breathed three breaths before gripping their handles and twirling them quickly in my palms. Even drunk, I could slaughter anything that moved. I was made to hunt. And hunt you shall, the voice urged.
I nodded and stood, shutting the passenger side door, tucking the blades into the back of my jeans, and camouflaging them with my shirt. My boots echoed with each step back toward the bar, heavy and dark like the night that surrounded me, like the thoughts in my head.
The adrenaline seared through my body, heightening every nerve, intensifying every sense. My heart pounded like a bass drum in my chest, pressing painfully against my ribs. My skin burned with anticipation.
I reached for the door handle.
“Where do you think you’re going?” a voice whispered, startling me.
I stopped, one hand on the handle. “Finley, go home,” I ordered her.
She stood from her leaning position against the outside wall of the bar, out of the shadows, and walked toward me. Her eyes seared through me. She came to me, stood closely, the heat from her body enveloping me.
“No, I don’t think I will,” she told me, looking up into my eyes. “At least not alone.”
She stood tenaciously, fearlessly. I noted how much taller she was than Cricket and it was a little bit intimidating to me, like what she said was going to happen whether or not I liked it. I respected her and I didn’t know why. I stared at her hard, but she didn’t budge. No, instead, she strengthened her own resolve, her jaw tightening with the decision and glared back even harder. She said and did things with such righteous authority, I felt powerless to her. I’d never felt that way before about a woman. It wasn’t pushy or irrational, it was simply as it was going to be.
My eyes and face relaxed the moment I acquiesced. “Fine.”
Her body followed suit and she nodded once, grabbing my arm and leading me toward my truck. Her hand reached into my jeans pocket, sending an inexplicable electrical charge through me, which I promptly chose to ignore, and yanked out my keys.
“Get in,” she ordered and I obeyed.
She threw herself into the driver’s side and slammed the door shut, sticking the keys in the ignition and turning only once. The engine started, daring not to further goad her. The stereo kicked on, belting something indicative of the moment we were leaving behind us, full of bass and a sharpness so edgy it echoed through my chest and head.
She shoved the truck in reverse, throwing her arm over the back of the bench, and her stare found mine. It was a solid look, packed full with a storm of unspoken words. Without breaking her gaze, she shifted into drive. She held there for a moment, driving her disappointment in me deep down into my soul before finally looking ahead to the end of the parking lot. I know I’m toxic, Finley, I thought, but that didn’t stop my mouth from retching awful thoughts.
“You have no reason to be pissed at me,” I told her, practically begging her to speak.
She didn’t say a word as she pulled out onto the road with more punch than the Finley I knew normally would have, turning toward the interstate. I had no clue where she was taking us, but I wasn’t about to ask.
Just make her turn around, I thought. Tell her you won’t do anything.
I opened my mouth to speak but caught a glimpse of her hair whipping about her determined face from the open windows and forgot what I was going to say. I turned my gaze toward the windshield. The light from the headlights exposing just enough of the road to make me nervous at the speed we were traveling. One hand found the dash to steady myself.
“What’s wrong, Ethan?” she asked.
“Huh?” I asked, whipping my head her direction.
“Too fast for you?”
“Liar,” she said, calling me out.
I wiped my palms down the thighs of my jeans. “Slow down,” I said, swallowing.
“Oh, now you want to play it safe?” Her eyes narrowed. “You’re so selfish, you know that?” she asked. I was taken aback. She’d never talked to me like that.
She leisurely drove across lanes as if traveling more than a hundred miles per hour was completely normal.
“What?” I demanded, feeling alert. The adrenaline had sobered me quickly.
“You’re selfish. And stupid. Let’s not forget stupid.”
My blood boiled. “Whatever, Finley.”
“Whatever, Finley,” she mocked. “Don’t you know I’m suffering? That I’m the only person in the world who suffers? Can’t you see that I’m determined to be foolish, Finley?”
“What do you know of suffering?” I asked, incensed.
Wide eyes met mine and her jaw clenched as she pulled over, slamming us to a stop. Her hair flew forward from the force before settling onto her chest and shoulders.
“I know more about suffering than you could ever possibly imagine. You don’t know shit! So you got your heart broken. So what! There are worse things, you know. There are things out there that would curl your toes to know about, Ethan.”
Revenge is an euphoric thing. Trust me on this. Nothing compares to the release you get when you ruin someone’s life. When they’ve stolen important things. Things that didn’t belong to them. Things I revel in making them pay for.
What? Have I offended you? I’m not here to appeal to your delicate senses. I have no intention of placating your wishes or living within your personal belief system nor do I care if you hate me. And you will hate me. Because I’m a brutal, savage, cold-blooded murderer and I’m here for my revenge.
I’m Ethan Moonsong...And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most sacrificing man to the most feared and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

“You need to be punished for that little stunt you pulled
earlier. Making my dick hard and swollen like that…” He makes a grunting sound
of disapproval, and my pulse spikes. I can read the need written all over his
features, in his tight posture. The need to punish me is flaring inside him,
and that excites the fuck out of me. What’s happening to me?
“I’m sorry, sir.” I blink up at him, my eyes communicating
my own need.
“What should we do to settle this?” His firm hands settle on
my waist, making my belly twist with nerves.
Boldly, I reach down between us, my hand curling around the
weight of his shaft, that even soft, is heavy in my hand. “I could take care of
this,” I offer.
His eyes sink closed for a moment, and I feel him begin to
harden against my palm. When he opens his eyes again, his perfect control is back.
“Would you like that, pet?”
I nod. “Yes.” The idea of sinking to my knees before him and
taking his heavy cock in my mouth makes me wet.
He shakes his head, telling me I’ve said the wrong thing,
given too much away. “Not this time,” he says, then reaches for my throat.
Lightly circling his fingers around my neck, his lips graze
mine. With his hands at my throat, holding me in place, he has my full
attention, which I think is the entire point. His thumb strokes along the
column of my neck, and he smiles slightly when he feels the insistent thrum of
“Being in trouble excites you. Naughty girl,” he remarks.
I make a small whimpering sound as the need to touch him, to
kiss him, rises inside me. The masculine scent of his skin, the way he towers
over me, even in my high-heeled shoes, the devastating look that says you will
belong to my cock. It’s all too much.
“How much time do I have before I have to return you?” he
I can see into the kitchen, to the clock on the wall. “I
have forty-five minutes before my next appointment.”
“Perfect.” Placing a kiss at the base of my throat, Hale
steps back and begins removing his tie as I watch in hungry anticipation the
way he slides the knot free and pulls it from his collar. “Turn around.”
Kendall Ryan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance novels, including Hard to Love, Unravel Me, Resisting Her and When I Break.
She's a sassy, yet polite Midwestern girl with a deep love of books, and a slight addiction to lipgloss. She lives in Minneapolis with her adorable husband and two baby sons, and enjoys hiking, being active, and reading.
Saffron Mills has lived all of her almost thirty years in Harrington, Maine—a small town where fishing is plenty, but available men are far too few. Yet it’s not just her dating dry spell that draws her to recent arrival Logan MacGowan. Tall, dark, and handsome, with emerald-green eyes and an impossibly hot body, Logan is a gorgeous enigma whose silence she takes for indifference…until one unforgettable chance meeting, when pent-up attraction ignites into the most intense encounter of her life.
In this quiet, quirky town, no one knows that Logan’s alter ego is famous sculptor and tabloid darling David Cambre. In New York, he had all the wrong kind of attention, but in Harrington, he’s found peace, privacy…and Saffron. She’s witty, forthright, and so much sexier and stronger than she knows. But how do you protect the love you’ve been waiting for when your own lifestyle could be destined to rip it apart?
Great read! I love reading books set in small towns. I am a BIG city girl so I love to read about small towns.
L.A. Fiore sets us from the beginning with the title of this book!
Aren't we all waiting for the one?
Logan MacGowan took my breathe away with his mysterious self! And I am a sucker for green eyes and scruff. So is Saffron Mills. She doesn't understand why Logan who has come into her small town and she is the only one he seems not to talk to.
But once they do talk, their chemistry ignites. He wants a new life, she wants to know what its like to find the one!
I really liked how their love story developed in this book. Of course while reading there were times I wanted to throw my Ipad Mini at the wall from being frustrated at how Saffron reacts to certain situations.
This story had a good amount of suspense, drama, love and family bonds.
I cried, laughed and said OMG a lot which in my book makes me one happy reader!
Go get this book! I am looking forward to reading L.A. Fiore other books!
