9781492616542-PRGoodreads/Amazon/B&N/BAM!/iBooks/!ndiego/IndieBound

Title: The Escape
Author: Hannah Jayne
Release Date: July 7, 2015
Publisher: Sourcebooks Firecooltext1889161239 copyNot everyone who goes into the woods comes out…

It was supposed to be a short hike, a way for Fletcher and Adam to kill time one boring afternoon. But when day turns into night and neither boy returns home, their town is thrown into turmoil.

Search teams comb through the forest. Then Avery, the police chief’s daughter, stumbles on a body. It’s Fletcher- disoriented, beaten, and covered in blood. He has no memory of the incident, and worse yet, he has no idea what happened to the still missing Adam…

As danger and suspicion grow, one thing becomes very clear. No one can escape the truth.

cooltext1921345213 copy“Hello?” she called out. “This is Avery Templeton with Search Team Five. Hello?”

The silence was complete, except for the steady thump of Avery’s heart. She took a step forward and slid on the loose earth, tumbling forward onto her hands and knees. Rocks tore skin and the knees of her jeans as she slid. When she stopped- eight, ten feet at the most- she was breathing heavily, her mind reeling. She did a quick assessment for damage. Other than the sting on her palms, nothing hurt.

So why was there blood on her hands?

She brought her hands towards her face and grimaced as the streaks of rust-colored blood-congealed, dirt stained-that covered her palms.

She wasn’t bleeding.

This wasn’t her blood.

It was then that she heard the slow gurgle, the sparse intake of breath followed by a low, throaty whisper. “Avery, you have to help me.”

Avery stared at the figure lying in front of her, allowing her eyes to adjust to the dim light.

“Please.”

The word came out in a desperate hiss, and he clasped a muddy, blood-caked hand around her wrist, his grip limp, his fingers trembling.

She gasped. “Fletcher?”

cooltext1921345213 copyFlames and darkness served as a reminder of the future we faced. Resting both forearms around my middle and feeling defeated, I shuddered. Filling in my view with his unreadable stare, he then glanced away briefly and whispered, “I wonder if a soulless creature is worthy to be bound by a heart, tied to a soul? Yet, as you stand there looking at me, I continue seeing the eyes of the child I once knew. Do you still want to offer me your soul?”


Without hesitation, sorrow for him exploded inside my chest. Thin lines of ink trailed down his cheeks, and I reached up to caress this face while pulling him closer for a chance to kiss his lips. Even for a moment, to give him a taste of my soul.
How did I know him?


I hadn’t grasped the words he spoke, let alone the feelings I had for him. Without conscious control over my voice, it answered him for me, “I can only choose what is right and pure. This is my only function. My heart is all the power I can give you right now.” I was unsure what I meant, but he smiled at me. The creatures formed a tighter circle around us and their wings appeared to be dripping hot silver acid that melted into what looked like cloaks made of the same black mist rising from the ground. Without notice, I found myself wrapped within two massive wings.


His wings sizzled as he pulled me into his icy embrace, leaning in to whisper against the inner part of my ear, “They say love knows no bounds. Death only has one boundary, and you cross over it when your heart stops. But written on the Unseen scrolls, it states this one emotion will last even after the breath ceases.”


With his trail of words still lingering against the inside curvature of my ear, my composure disappeared. The blankets were wrapped tight around me like a cocoon. If I didn’t know better, I would have sworn it had snowed in the room overnight. Shadows were thick and barricaded the bedroom and closet doors. No escape from the nightly terrors. Rubbing the grit from each lash, I unwrapped from the cocoon of covers, followed by flopping one leg at a time to the floor. My mind was clouded in the thick fog making it difficult to push off the bed. I wasn’t sure if I’d ever been so weak and chilled from sweating. An overwhelming need washed over me to open the drapes and cleanse the bedroom from the unknown with the glow from the streetlights. His presence remained in the room with me. Turning slowly from the window, it felt as if I were wearing lead shoes. Pushing their weight toward the mirror, I was horrified at the face gaping back at me. I leaned closer to try and comprehend what the glass was telling me. Two small, dried streams of red gleamed on my cheeks. I was frozen in a nonexistent moment of time. My breath caught as I gasped… and woke up.

Born in Pomona, California, Kathy-Lynn Cross lived there for twelve years until her family moved to Las Vegas, Nevada—where she resides still to this day. Inspired by the backdrop of Sin City, Kathy-Lynn took her English professor’s advice and wrote about the hometown that she knew.

Kathy-Lynn wasn’t always a writer. In 2008, when her niece was hospitalized, Kathy-Lynn decided to do something special for her so she wrote a short tale for her to read. After devouring it in a single day, her niece and the nurses in the pediatrics wing quickly asked her, “What’s next?”

That was when a new chapter in her life opened up, and Kathy-Lynn realized that she wanted to become a Storyweaver.

Kathy-Lynn loves the color red and obsessively uses it in everything, including her bottle-blonde hair accented by red highlights. She has a knack for baking and cake decorating—that is, when her fingers are not busy writing mayhem. When recharging, you could find her curled up with a cup of coffee and a good book or spending time with her hubby of nineteen years, two kids, four cats, and the family dog.

ARC Review: The Kiss-Lucy Courtenay

25617446Goodreads/Amazon/iBooks

cooltext1889161239 copy‘Aphrodite kissed a mortal once by the light of this moon, many thousands of years ago. It drove him crazy. The next person that he kissed – boum. The craziness travelled like this from person to person. It travelled through time. Everywhere – boum! Tu comprends?’

‘Where did it end up?’ I whisper. His lips are on my cheek now.

‘It ended with me. And now I am going to pass it to you. You will like that, mermaid?’

Imagine the perfect kiss. A legendary kiss that makes people crazy with love. Imagine a summer’s night, on a moonlit beach in the South of France, as French boy Laurent kisses 16-year-old Delilah after the best chat-up line she’s ever heard. BOOM! Delilah is pretty sure the Kiss is fiction, despite her head-spinning holiday fling. But with all the sudden crushes, break-ups and melt-downs happening back at home, the Kiss starts looking a little too real for comfort. If only Delilah could keep track of where it’s gone …Who knew one kiss could cause this much trouble? A hilarious rom-com that will delight Geek Girls everywhere!

cooltext1889171582 copy3/5 Stars

***I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley & Hachette Children’s Group.

The Kiss is a hilarious coming of age story with plenty of romance, friendship, and embarrassment to keep you laughing the whole time. 

PROS:

  • The Kiss is a laugh out loud, fun, coming of age story. There’s plenty of cringe-worthy blunders as Delilah struggles through romance. The comparisons are creative, funky, and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Alone, they’re enough to keep you happy and wonderfully entertained. The Kiss is a feel good, light-hearted book perfect for the beach or a relaxing day. Some scenes are painfully awkward, in that avert your eyes way. It’s hilarious. 
  • Delilah is spastic, spontaneous, and for all her scheming, makes a mess of everything no matter how hard she tries. Delilah is a romantic who has been burned badly by love. She is hyper-critical of male attention and yet, is a playful flirt. Underneath her childish behavior, Delilah is a sweetheart who will do anything for her friends. Delilah grows and explores her feelings, opening up to new adventures. 
  • Jem and Delilah are adorable together. They’re the kind of crazy, wild sweetness that fills you with warmth and instantaneous happiness. They’re so cute together. His sort of bad boy flirt pairs well with her stand-offish behavior. He teases and challenges her, forces her to reevaluate her decisions and helps her grow. 
  • The theater people, the body art painters, and Oz are comical, perfectly weird characters. Each has their own defining trait that will make you chuckle and want to learn more. Their energy is off the charts, the dialogue flows well, and it’s almost like you’re there, participating. 

CONS:

  • The premise of Aphrodite’s Kiss was intriguing and creative but fell apart as focus was lost. The whimsical magic of the Kiss was forgotten as drama and gossip quickly became the focal point.
  • Delilah seems much younger than her age. She’s incredibly immature and sometimes her cheesy, naivetĂ© takes away from the story. In other sections, Delilah is mature, goal-oriented, and compassionate. She almost seems like two different characters.
  • Some secondary characters were missing that lively energy that makes them memorable. As Delilah’s best friend, Tabby and her storyline (while integral) were bland and predictable. Tabby’s personality is muted except for bursts of animosity that are like a slap in the face. Delilah’s ex and the random troublemaker Studs had the potential to liven up the story with a whole lot of drama but when the trouble did happen, it was summarized. I wanted front row tickets to the reckoning and got a brief line or two.

Genre: New Adult/Contemporary

Release: June 30th

cooltext1889161239 copyStaci Jameson is independent to a fault. But after growing up in the shadow of an overprotective family, and being let down by the only person that promised to always be there for her, Staci locked away her heart and vowed only to rely on herself.

Until a tall dark and sexy-as-sin player reawakens something inside of her.

Kade Ford knows what some people will do in the name of love, and it isn’t all hearts and flowers. It’s the reason he isn’t looking to settle down. Ever. Instead, he plays the field and never gets too close.

Until a tiny blonde firecracker barrels her way into his life and leaves him wanting more.

What starts as a one-night stand turned friends-with-benefits arrangement begins to blur into something neither of them saw coming?or wanted. And when secrets from their pasts catch up with them, the very thing that they are both running from might just be the thing that they need the most. Will Staci and Kade turn to each other or will they let their pasts define their future?

Sometimes two people don’t just come together…they collide.

cooltext1921345213 copyHe looked at me and extended his hand. “We have to dance. Bride’s orders.”

I blew out an exasperated sigh, my hand hovering over his. Electricity literally snapped between us. “Well, if the bride says, then I guess I’ll do as I’m told.”

Kade’s face cracked a smug smile, as if to say ‘oh, you’ll do as youĂ­re told, all right,’ and his hand curled around mine. The electricity ran up my arm, causing me to shudder.

Knock it off. I chastised myself for letting him get to me.

The other groomsmen found their bridesmaids, and we all made our way to the checkered dance floor. Livy looked so pleased with herself; I shot her a discreet scowl. She was the only person who knew about my brief history with Kade Ford, and that was only because she tricked it out of me after one too many tequilas last year.

Kade wrapped me in his strong arms and started swaying us to the music. “You look so damn fuckable in that dress.”

My head snapped up to meet his hooded stare. He looked like he wanted to devour me. Shit, Jameson… PULL IT TOGETHER. I gave Kade my best fake smile and said, “Does that line actually work, Ford? Because I’ve heard better.”

The smug smile he was wearing slowly transformed into a lazy grin only making him sexier-if that was possible. He dipped his head into the crook of my neck and whispered against my skin, “Maybe, but have you ever had better?”

The guy was a walking, talking jerk. I’d known some douches in my time, but Kade Ford was-and always would be-douche canoe number one. The kind of douche that left a mark, but a douche nonetheless.

Determined to make his mark on the world, Slade Collins leaps at the opportunity to audition as cover model for Tamsin Archer’s newest novel.  Tales of Tamsin’s wild parties, affinity for hot men and the wild success that has sky rocketed every former model to fame leads Slade to use his sly smile and British accent to quickly attract the attention of both Tamsin and her shy assistant. But the faster Slade moves toward the dream he so desperately desires, the more he begins to realize fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. 
 
Tamsin Archer loves to party, drink to excess and enjoy every drop of success her name has afforded her. With Ashlyn’s firm grip on the reigns of their five city tour, Tamsin soon settles in to the task of bedding her newest cover model, Slade Collins but soon discovers that all the drunken hookups and empty wine bottles in the world can’t fill the void that she feels.
