Excerpts

Kezra

The Edge of Seventeen (2016)

I am no looker.

I’m not a dog either. But I am no looker.

Aylin used to say I was precocious. “Precocious when it comes to boys,” she’d say.

By the time I was done dating Conor, I said I was nothing but a fool.

I started dating too early. Antoni was the first guy I ever saw. I was fourteen, close to fifteen, sporting braces on my teeth. We shared a kiss, nothing passionate, innocent.

Until he touched my breasts and I went cold.

Fourteen. Was he a freaking idiot?

Dawson happened after that. It lasted three months. I was more grown up, more developed. My breasts, especially, were more developed.

I hate my breasts.

But it was Conor who would thrust me into the black world of adulthood with an indignant slap I am certain I will never forget.

~~~

I write because I am lonely.

I write because I hurt.

I write while tears drip from my eyes, turning the screen of my tablet into splotches of pixelated rainbows.

~~~

The way I was brought into this world has nothing to do with how I feel about love.

It has everything to do with how I feel about myself.

~~~

How much horror can a mind endure?

Are the pains of a sixteen-year-old laughed at by those older then her?

What pain did my mother suffer? (“Sometimes I went without food so that I wouldn’t have to take that bastard’s money, Kez.”)

My pain is nothing compared to what hers must have been. And yet, the pain I feel is phenomenal.

Tiago

P.S. I Love You (2007)

Just before the sun rises, when the world is silent and the River Tejo laps gently at the stone steps leading to the giant Praça do Comércio square, leaves of golden sunlight shimmer above the surface of Lisbon’s great river. This is my favorite time to sit on these steps, flicking stones into the water, letting my gaze drift west toward the ocean.

And I think of her.

I do not weep anymore. My eyes are dry. I have wept this entire river twice over and still that will not bring her back.

The seagulls taunt me, cawing in accusation. I should have moved faster, they say. I should not have been so complacent with my joy.

I never deserved that joy. I know it.

Tiago

Deadly is the Female (1950)

It is the week for meeting Americans. And if I thought my encounter with Dahlia went bad, then I can only compare my meeting with the one called Kezra to something just short of a nuclear war. It’s my fault, mostly. But it’s also her fault.

I would love to say that our first encounter is quaint and sweet, that it is the type of first-meeting you expect from a Rom-Com.

It is not.

It is a disaster.

And I am nothing short of a hungover bastard.

But let’s call a spade a spade. Guilt must be placed where guilt belongs. And this chick is a real stinker of a piece of work too.

I guess you could say I started it.

I did.

But she contributes gladly to the atomic chain reaction which follows.

Dare I say, I think she even revels in it.

Isabella Starling started out as a voracious reader of dark romance, and has since evolved her love of reading into writing dark, twisted romantic tales. When not spending time with her boyfriend, two cats & a Labrador pup, she’s chatting away to author friends and plotting her next release.

 

 

Demi Donovan is a writer on a mission. A mission to bring bad boys, dark love and filthy dreams to every page she writes, that is.

A lifelong reader, writing is something she always wanted to do. The fact that she can write about all the dark, twisted things going through her head only makes it that much better. 

Demi lives in a small town with big dogs, even bigger aspirations and a man who isn’t a bad boy, but definitely plenty filthy.

Our Book Review – I Was a Mistake: Another Type of Abuse by Shawn Woods

41Hn4ur8QBL._SY346_

** Review by Kylie from Bloggers From Down Under **

“Children look to their parents for approval and when they don’t get that approval, they question themselves. They also have problems with self-esteem and confidence”

For me, agreeing to read and review this book, was a sort of therapy. I’ve read books that have touched on violent upbringings, but this is the first time I’ve read such a moving story about mental abuse of a child. And granted, the language is sometimes tricky to understand (due to the authors learning difficulties, which is mentioned before the first chapter), but once I got into the swing of the narrative, it was, sadly, like reading my own story.

I too am the girl who has never been shown praise by her parents. Nothing I ever did, even putting my teenage years on hold, was ever good enough. Even now, like Shawn, at 42 years of age, I dread the family gatherings. I dread the loud conversations where no names are mentioned, but they don’t need to be. I hear the whispers behind my back, I hear the nasty words spewing from their mouths. But that is my story.

So Shawn, from one victim to another, Thankyou, from the bottom of my fractured heart, Thankyou. Your words are forever etched into my memory xoxoxo

While this book may not be for everyone, I personally was left speechless and in absolute awe at the life Shawn has led, even with monumentous hurdles to overcome.

And hoping this makes you smile for only a second Shawn……. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU for having the courage to share your story.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Release Blitz – His To Seduce – Stacey Lynn 

SBPR-HTS-RB.jpg

His to Seduce by Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: March 21st, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Loveswept

image001

Synopsis:

An honorable man who’s lost his way . . . A career woman who hides behind her button-up suits . . . Unexpected romance is the specialty at the Fireside Grill as Stacey Lynn’s captivating series comes full circle.

Becoming an ER doctor had been David McGregor’s mission ever since he could remember. But after tragedy strikes at his hospital in Chicago, David runs away from the guilt—all the way back to Latham Hills, Michigan, where he takes a job tending bar at his childhood friend’s restaurant. That’s how he meets Camden Reed, and the way Camden refuses to give him the time of day should be a turnoff. Instead, he’s drawn to her tough, tightly wound exterior, and soon David realizes that he has a new mission: to see her tightly wound beneath him.

Camden’s fighting tooth and nail to resist the desire she feels for David. Growing up dirt-poor, raised by a single mother, she worked twice as hard to get where she is today, and she doesn’t have any patience for the kind of guy who’d give up a decent paycheck to sling drinks. But when the sexual tension finally combusts between the sheets, Camden discovers that people aren’t always what they seem. As David pushes her past her limits, Camden begins to loosen up—and to trust that, when she falls, there will be someone waiting to catch her.
