Hooked by AW Clarke - Review Post

Hooked by A W Clarke

Victoria has it all. She is bright, beautiful and the envy of her colleagues. Yet, despite her success, she knows deep down something is missing. On a leisurely trip to Italy, she meets with destiny in a way that will change her life forever. Destiny being a gorgeous man atop a motorcycle. Mateo is everything Victoria is not. He sees the beauty of life in a way she doesn’t. Against her better judgement, Victoria steps into Mateo’s world. She will never be the same. Experience the passion, regret, and rediscovery that sends a young woman's heart on a roller coaster ride of emotion. This book contains sexual content and situations suitable only for mature readers.

****My Four Star Review****
I have to say this book was not what I expected. I was thrilled to be asked to read this book by the author for my honest review. And when I started reading it on his website (the first 4 or so chapters are there) I wanted more!! So I was gifted a copy and immediately started devouring the pages. From the details of the location to the emotions of the characters, I was sucked into Victoria's journey and was praying for her HEA! Now Victoria isn't the usual heroine I would follow, but there is just something about her brilliance in the working world and ignorance when it comes to love, that just made me completely fall in love with her character. We see her at the top of her game as an analyst, and yet clueless as to how to process the emotions she feels, which is exactly what happens when she is on vacation and meets the sweet and simple, yet totally handsome Mateo. Communication with their bodies is not lacking, but their language barrier (being Victoria's lack of relationship experience and more critical nature) ends their foreign love affair all too soon.

Time heals most wounds of the heart, but Victoria will have a few more speedbumps along the way to finding a forever love. When Victoria meets Peter on a lunch break, they slowly unfold into a friendship and then begin a semi-romantic relationship. When the proposal comes, I have to say...I kind of expected more heat...but Peter is written as a very simple soul. He loved her and it seemed from the way the book goes, that the love was less than physical and more of needs being fulfilled. When Victoria comes to the realization that he is her happily ever after, they plan the most beautiful wedding scene I've read, it felt like you were right there seated in the audience and watching the dramatic conclusion unfold before you. I wont give more away, well maybe a little, the story is a complete, whole heart wrenchingly beautiful tale of finding ones true love or soul mate. And when you get "Hooked", you will understand, because you become hooked on this love story, that - that kind of love is worth fighting for.

I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for a journey through one woman's adventures of finding a love that keeps you 'hooked'. #oneclick #mustread #romance

★★★#SurpriseCoverReveal★★★ Refusing To Fall (Dennison Series #3) by W. Ferraro

RTF ecover Synopsis
Reed Dennison prides himself on perfection. Strategizing and maneuvering himself into positions of success in his professional life; all the while holding every detail regarding his personal life close to the vest. For Reed, every aspect must be controlled - everything must be in its place and the impeccable public image can never falter.
Well that is his plan anyways until a routine coffee run morphs into the first of many fiery encounters with the sexy artist Colby Jackson. Their explosive, yet casual, affair ends, and they part ways never expecting to see each other again.
Imagine Reed’s surprise when Colby is introduced, as the newest resident in Clearwater Falls and soon becomes fully entrenched in the daily lives of his family. But, something about this one-of-a-kind woman has Reed willing to forgo his thoroughly crafted rules.
Will Reed’s desire for Colby loosen his tight rein of control? Or will Reed’s ambition destroy any chance he has at a shot to really live?
Reed thought he knew exactly what he wanted out of life. Now, he may lose the one thing he never knew he wanted.
What do you do when your private haven, threatens to become the ultimate land of temptation?

Release Day for When We Were Us (with Scavenger Hunt Clue) by Tawdra Kandle

Facebook Cover

It's finally here--
When We Were Us, Keeping Score Series Book 1.
Join us at the Birthday and Release Bash right here.

The Trio.
That's who we've been since birth:
Nate, Leo . . . and me, Quinn, the token girl.
Our mothers met in a prenatal class and became best friends, which meant that the three of us hit every milestone together, from the first day of school to the very first kiss. And beyond.

I've always been caught in the middle between the two boys. I've been in love with Leo since I was eight, even though he doesn't see me as anything but his pal. And I know that Nate's hung up on me. I see the look in his eyes. I wish I could say I felt the same, but I don't. It's getting harder and harder to keep him in the friend zone, though.

Things between the three of us aren't easy anymore. Leo's popular, the football team's star receiver, and the object of every girl's fantasy. I know he doesn't mean to leave us behind, but now Nate and I are just people he used to know.

What used to be so simple is suddenly messy and complicated. Leo is all I've ever wanted, but even if I had the chance to be with him, how would Nate would handle it?

When that chance does come along . . .
in the most unexpected way . . .
I'm helpless to resist Leo.
What was always meant to be is finally happening . . .
but will it come at the risk of losing both my friends?

Guest Post from Tawdra Kandle:
As I've written elsewhere, the Keeping Score Trilogy is meant to be a set of books that stands alone, as a threesome. The books themselves are not stand-alones, but the trilogy is.
For now.
I found years ago that I am incapable of writing a stand-alone book. Side characters always show up who turn out to have their own stories, and they must be told. But this was not going to be the case with the Keeping Score books. Nope. No spin offs. No intriguing side stories.
Well . . .
I can't say who will have spin-offs, because it would spoil the story, but I can say there are at least three characters in the running. If you want to guess after you read the book, I'll listen.
But I shall neither confirm nor deny.
Those books won't be written for at least another year, possibly two more years. But I know they'll come alone sooner or later.

Read an exclusive excerpt right here!
