SHE STOLE MY PROPERTY

I’ll never forget the night I caught her sneaking around my place. She thought she could steal from me and get away with it, but I have no intention of letting her get away at all. Mian Ross has a lesson to learn, and I’m going to be the one to teach it to her.

HE STOLE MY SON

I’ll never forget the night I made the second biggest mistake of my life. It was supposed to be a simple job, but it quickly became so much more—one that cost my freedom and cost my son. Angel Knight became my worst nightmare… and now, he’ll never let us go.






Author Bio

B.B., ALSO KNOWN as Bebe, found her passion for romance when she read her first romance novel by Susan Johnson at a young age. She would sneak into her mother's closet for books and even sometimes the attic. It soon became a hobby, and later an addiction, influencing her life in a positive way.

Bebe is fresh out of undergrad college and has always wondered about the existence of her talent. When she finally decided to pick up a metaphorical pen and start writing, she found a new way to embrace her passion.

She favors a romance that isn't always easy on the eyes or heart, and loves to see characters grow--characters who are seemingly doomed from the start but find love anyway.

Fear Me, her debut novel, is the first of many.

Until June.jpg
Blurb
June Mayson and Evan Barrister’s whirlwind courtship resulted in a secret marriage right before he left for boot camp. Evan knows deep in his gut that June is too good for him, but after getting a taste of the beautiful life they can have together, he’s unwilling to let her go. June promises to wait for him, knowing neither time or distance will ever change her feelings for Evan—that is until she’s served with divorce papers while he’s overseas and she’s forced to let him go.
Her marriage and divorce a well-kept secret, the last person June expects to run into when she moves back to her hometown is Evan. Angry over the past, she does everything within her power to ignore the pull she feels whenever he is near. But how can she ignore the pain she sees every time their eyes meet? How can she fight the need to soothe him even if she knows she’s liable to get hurt once again?
Is it possible for June and Evan to find their way back to each other again? Or will they be stopped by an outside force before they ever have a shot?


Until June Teaser.jpg

Prologue
Looking at my reflection in the mirror across from me, I cringe. My hair is a disaster, there are bags under my eyes, and the nightgown I have on isn’t even one of the cute ones I normally wear. It’s the one my sister, December, got me as a joke, but I wear it occasionally, because its comfortable, even if it was made for a woman three times my age. Resting my elbows on the desk in front of me, I run my fingers through my hair, pulling the strands back away from my face.
“I hate men,” I whisper into the empty interrogation room, where I was told to wait over an hour ago after the police kicked in my door and dragged me from my bed. Lifting my gaze, I look at myself in the mirror again and vow that whenever I get out of the mess my ex-boyfriend has gotten me into, I’m going to learn how to be a lesbian, even if I’m not sure that’s actually possible.
“June Mayson.” Turning my head, I look over my shoulder at the now open door behind me, and my eyes meet those of a man who reminds me of my dad. He looks to be in his mid-forties, and is one of those men time has been kind to. He’s built, with dark hair that’s cut short and parted on the side. His eyes are a blue that stands out against his dark lashes and tan skin. “I’m Officer Mitchell, and this is Officer Plymouth.” He nods behind him and is followed in by a man who must be playing the roll off ‘Bad Cop’, judging by the frown on his face and the look he gives me when our eyes meet. Time hasn’t been as kind to him; he looks like he has enjoyed one too many beers. His middle is soft, and his skin doesn’t look healthy.
Nodding, I cross my arms over my chest and run my hands down the bare skin of my biceps that’s chilled from the cool air coming from the vent above me.
“Would you like something to drink?” Officer Mitchell asks as he walks fully into the room.
Shaking my head, I mutter, “No, thank you.”
“Hot chocolate?” he offers, and I feel tears burn the back of my eyes. Since I was little, whenever I was having a bad day, my dad would offer me hot chocolate. His hot chocolate has magical powers that always make everything seem okay, but I doubt police station hot chocolate would have the same effect.
“No, thanks. I’d just like to know why I’m here,” I tell him as he takes a seat in the metal chair across from me and places a thick folder on the table between us.
“We may be here awhile, Miss Mayson, so I’d like you to be comfortable,” he says gently, and I look at Officer Plymouth, who is leaning against the wall, then back to him.
“I don’t mean to be rude, Mr. Mitchell, but I’d really like to get to the point. I have class in a few hours and I’d really like to make it on time.”
“I’m afraid you’re probably going to miss your class today, Miss Mayson.”
Closing my eyes, I open them slowly and ask, “Can I get a sweater?”
Surprisingly, Officer Plymouth slips off his suit jacket and walks it over to me, placing it around my shoulders.
‘Thank you,” I whisper up at him, and his eyes soften around the edges. Pulling my eyes from him, my gaze goes back toward Officer Mitchell.
“How long have you known Lane Diago?” Officer Mitchell asks, and I sit up a little taller.
“I don’t know anyone by that name,” I tell him, and he opens the file folder, fanning out a few pictures of my ex-boyfriend, Aaron, and me directly in front of me. Each of them were taken while we were a couple, showing we had been followed more than a few times. Him coming to my apartment…him kissing me outside my car…at the store, walking hand-in-hand down the aisles…at the movies…out to dinner…both of us doing normal couple things.
“You mean Aaron?”
“That what he told you his name was?” he asks, and I nod looking up at him.
“I’ve known him for about a year,” I whisper, dropping my eyes to the pictures again, realizing I actually didn’t know him, since his name isn’t even Aaron.
“How long have you two been dating?” he inquires, and my eyes drop to the pictures once more.
“We dated for about four months. I broke up with him a month ago,” I tell him truthfully as a feeling of sadness hits me unexpectedly. I wasn’t in love with Aaron—or Lane. Not even close. But I cared about him, and believed he cared about me as well. That was, until he sent me a text to meet him at his house. When I got there, one of his roommates let me in, and I found him up in his room with Susie Detrei’s mouth around his cock, proving I was wrong about him.
“You were close,” Officer Mitchell states, and I nod because we were, or I thought we were. “Can you tell me who this man is?” he asks, pulling out a picture of Aaron’s—Lane’s cousin, or at least the guy he told me was his cousin.
“Aaron…I mean Lane’s cousin Cody. He lives in Mississippi,” I tell him.
“Did you ever overhear them talking?”
“Overhear them talking?” I ask, looking at a picture of Cody and Lane sitting in what looks like a bar, Lane with his favorite beer in his hand, and Cody with a short, wide glass with dark liquid and ice on the bar top in front of him, and his hand wrapped around it while he laughs at something.
“Overhear them talking about anything out of the ordinary?”
“No.”
“Are you sure about that?”
“Maybe if you told me exactly why I’m here, I can give you the information you’re looking for.”
“Lane Diago’s uncle is one of the biggest distributors of illegal narcotics in Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina.”
“What?” I whisper as my eyes focus on one of the pictures of Lane and me standing outside my apartment. I was wearing a short colorful summer dress and gold strappy sandals, and Lane had on a pair of black cargo shorts and a plain white tee. His head was bent toward mine, my hand was resting against his chest, and his was wrapped tight around my hip. It was our third date and our first kiss. I had waited forever to even go on a date with him, because I wasn’t ready for a relationship. I finally gave in to him, because he was so persistent. He asked me out every time we saw each other, and he was always dramatic in the way he did it.
“Did you ever see—”
“I never saw anything,” I cut him off. “Lane didn’t even smoke pot, and almost everyone I know smokes pot,” I whisper, pulling my eyes from the picture to look at him.
“You two were together a lot. He would have you drop him places. My men saw you on more than one occasion.”
“To friends’ houses,” I tell him, suddenly finding it hard to breathe. “If he asked me to drop him to a friend’s or to run him somewhere when we were going out, I would do it, but I never saw him do anything illegal.”
“Do you understand you can go to prison if we find out you spent any of the money he earned from selling drugs on things for yourself.”
Laughing, I cover my face with my hands and lay my head on the table while I try to pull myself together. I probably shouldn’t be laughing right now but its either laugh or cry.
“What do you find funny about this?” Officer Plymouth asks, and I lift my head to look at him.
“I paid for us to do things more than once, and he even asked me for gas money a couple of times. I never, not once, took money from him, not even for a coffee,” I tell him, and his eyes go to Officer Mitchell, who mutters, “Fuck.”
“He cheated on me a month ago, and I haven’t talked to him since then,” I tell him, and he shakes his head.
“We have time stamps for phone calls between the two of you over the last month.”
“Did you ever look at how long those calls lasted?” I ask, knowing that if he did, he would know we didn’t actually talk. “He called. He called over and over. Finally, I had to pick up to tell him to stop calling me. I didn’t want anything to do with him a month ago, and I sure as hell don’t want anything to do with him now.”
“Another fucking road block,” Officer Plymouth grumbles, and my head swings to him.
“I’m sorry. I swear that if I knew anything, I would help you out, but I don’t. Lane never told me anything, and I sure as hell didn’t see anything. If I had, I would have talked to my uncle about it.”
“You’re sure you didn’t see anything, hear anything?”
“I’m sure,” I tell him, wishing I did know something, not because I’m a rat, but because I know what drugs can do to people. I know not everyone dies from using drugs, not everyone’s life goes to shit from using them, but my best roommate freshmen year of college overdosed and died, and that was only after she turned into a completely different person. Someone I didn’t like much. Someone I couldn’t trust. So, there’s no way I would ever protect anyone who is responsible for supplying those drugs, no matter how much I care about them.
“Would you be willing to get back in with Lane?” Officer Plymouth asks, bringing my attention to him. My heart flips in my chest at the thought, but I don’t get a chance to answer, because someone bangs hard on the glass mirror in front of me, causing my image to go funny.

Release Blitz and Review- Waiting for Him by Dawn Stanton




Title: Waiting for Him
Series: Waiting #3 
Author: Dawn Stanton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 3, 2016



Blurb

Have you ever had a secret that weighed on you so heavily you felt as though you might crumble from the burden of it?

I’ve been lying to all of my loved ones for months now, lying right to their faces. I know at some point the truth will have to come out, but I’m dreading that day with every fiber of my being. I don’t want to hurt anyone, especially Jeff, my fiancĂ©.

My past and present are at war, pushing and pulling me in two different directions and sooner or later I’m going to break. How do I choose between the two men I love?

Garrett, my ex, who disappeared from my life without a trace has now returned. He claims he still loves me and he wants me back.

Jeff, the man I’m engaged to marry built our relationship on lies, but he proves to me every single day how much he loves me.

Are the mistakes of the past too much for me to move on from or can I find a way to forgive one of them?

Maybe it’s time for me to start with a clean slate and just focus on me.


Review 

Another great book in the series by Dawn Stanton. 

In this one we finally get an answer to the questions from the previous book. It is told from each of the main characters POV- Jeff, Shelby and Garrett. This book was most defiantly a story of friendship and second chances. I think telling the story through each of there POV's really added to story and helped you to understand their actions and feel a real connection to each character. The story is very well written and has a good pace. Overall this has been a great series and I will looking forward to reading other books by Dawn Stanton. If you haven't read Dawn Stanton yet I would highly recommend starting with this series.

Excerpt

“What are you so happy about? I just told you what a disaster my life has become and you think it’s funny?” I ask as I poke his rock hard stomach. He catches my hand with his and uses it to tug me forward. I stumble into him awkwardly, landing against his chest. His arms slide around me, resting low on my waist...dangerously low...almost into ass territory low. Both of my palms are flat against his chest and it’s difficult for me to resist the urge to slide them down his stomach and back up under his shirt. His skin would be scorching hot on my hands as I slowly traced his defined abdominal muscles. Stop it. Focus. My eyes raise up to meet his and there’s an answering smirk playing around the right corner of his lips as if he knows I was lost in lust filled thoughts of him.

My Review 

4.5 Stars 


This was a great emotional read from Monica Murphy and it was completely different in a way to her other books. 



The story is about Katherine Watts who at a very young age was subjected to something that no child should every encounter when was kidnapped at the age of 12. Will was her saviour, who saved her all them years ago. Now in order to help her move on Katherine does a tv interview to tell her side of the story. This is seen by Will (Ethan, his new identity) who knows he should stay away but he is just drawn to Katherine. 



This was a very emotional read. It's not only a story of second chance love but it is underlined with betrayal and lies. The story is told from both of their POV's and it also switches between the past and the present. This is done very clearly by the author and I liked how it interweaved between the two. It is really well written and has a great pace. I was sucked in to the story early on and wanted to keep reading. This was one of those books where you are hoping for a HEA for characters but we need to wait for book 2 to see if they do. It's not a cliffhanger ending as such I don't think but it does end you wanting to read book 2 straightaway. The book does deal with some very difficult issues and I thought the author dealt very well them in the book. 



Overall a great emotional read and I look forward to reading book 2.

Book Blurb:

I don’t believe in destiny.

In fate.

Or in soul mates.

But I believe in Hawke.

My life has never been whole since my parents left forever. I have my brother, someone I can barely tolerate most of the time, and I have my best friend, Marie.

And I have myself.

But when Hawke walks into my life, there’s an immediate connection. Our eyes lock and an unspoken conversation is exchanged. For the first time in my life, I actually feel something.

But he doesn’t.

He keeps me at arm’s length and pretends there’s nothing between us when there clearly is. I’m not the kind of girl to wait around for any guy, so I don’t.

But that doesn’t mean he isn’t in the back of my mind.

Our paths cross again in a way neither one of us expect and it changes everything. Was it destiny that made it happen? Was it fate?

Or was it something else?

My Review 

4 Stars 

Another enjoyable read from E.L Todd. 

This is the story of Frankie and Hawke. They meet in the Coffee shop that Frankie works in, Frankie takes matters into her own hands and ask Hawke out on a date. However at the end of date just as things were get hot and heavy Hawke changes his mind. A couple of weeks later fate brings them back to together, they agree to friends but will this be enough for them both, or will they share there real feelings? 

What I liked about this was that both characters had flaws and I liked the way the author gave the characters time to grow. They both had their issues but I loved the way they were over come together and they seem to complement each other in the right way. I really liked Hawke's character I could understand his reasons for wanting to stay away from Frankie but I also got frustrated that I wanted jump in at times and shake him. The relationship is a slow build throughout the first part but I was quickly hooked into the story wanted to read what happens. I liked that Hawke was much a alpha a male but Frankie was also strong minded and one of my favorite scene was there fight over her changing the car tyre, i could see both there POV's but I also felt it was a turning point in their relationship. There are a few twists and turns and it does end on a slight cliffhanger and I really want to read the next book Tuesday now not only for more Hawke but also it hope there might be a HEA for them both.

EXCERPT: My phone rang and Hawke’s name was on the screen. I forgot to call him and tell him I’d be late. “Hello?” “I know you’re late to everything but…a phone call would have been nice.” He was half teasing me, half being serious. “I’m sorry. I got a flat tire, and I’ve been trying to change it.” “What?” he barked. “Dude, this is really hard. I’ve been out here for an hour and a half.” Instead of laughing, he growled. “Are you kidding me right now?” Did I miss something? “What?” “Why didn’t you call me? I can change a tire in two seconds.” “I thought I could figure it out until…I realized I couldn’t.” “It’s freezing outside and it’s dark. Are you stupid?” Now I growled back. “You don’t need to be a dick.” “I’m going to be a dick when your head is shoved up your ass. Now where are you so I can come and get you?” “I can change the tire on my own.” “Clearly.” “How will I ever learn if you don’t let me figure it out?” “I could teach you. Did you think of that, smartass?” He was practically screaming at me over the phone. “If you’re going to throw a hissy fit, I’m going to hang up.” “You better not—” Click. I set my phone down and got back to work. He called back in two seconds. I sighed then answered. “What?” “Tell me where you are.” “So you can come down here and yell at me?” “So I can change your tire. Now spit it out.” “I’m almost done. I can figure it out.” “You’re really pissing me off,” he snapped. “Tell me where you are or—” Click. He called back immediately. He was such a drama queen. “What?” I yelled. “HANG UP ON ME AGAIN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.” I rolled my eyes and stayed mute. “Now tell me where you are before I search the streets.” I looked around and tried to find a street name. “I’m at Gettysburg Park. I’m right at the curb.” Now he hung up on me. Click.

Excerpt

What man doesn’t like to be wanted?

Well, not if you’re me and you’ve just done a stint in jail for a crime you didn’t commit.

The press and social media have crucified me. People hate my guts. Nobody believes that I’m innocent.

Especially the woman who is determined to put me back behind bars because I destroyed her family. She’s hell bent on making me pay for my sins.

I’m starting a new life and putting all that crap behind me.

Except that Addison James won’t let me. She worms her way into my life and my bed until she’s under my skin and I just can’t shake her.

I’m Foster Cruise.

I’m wanted.
