Two years ago, the cynical attorney wasn't interested in
relationships. Tanya only wanted a fling with the sexy British lawyer. Then she
made the mistake of falling in love with him. She was shattered when he left
for a job in New York and decided she learned her lesson. Never again would she
allow herself to be vulnerable.
She moved on and built an impenetrable wall around her wounded heart.

When Jordan returns to Dallas to take a position at the law firm
where she works, he makes it clear that he wants to pick up where they left
off. Tanya refuses, determined to protect herself from more pain.

But Jordan won't give up so easily. In fact, he plans to use
whatever means necessary to draw Tanya back into his life and his bed. She's
not the only one who made a mistake two years ago and he will do whatever it
takes to make it right.




My cell phone rang a few moments later and I sighed, giving up on the idea of getting any work done for the moment.

"Woman, I feel like I haven't seen you in weeks. We're having lunch today, no arguments," Chelsea declared. "I've already talked to Yancy and Grier. Lucy can't come, so it's just the four of us."

I glanced at the clock. I had three hours to do six hours worth of work. "Chelsea, I'm not sure I'll be able to swing it today, I have a ton-"

"No excuses. I'll go down a little early and grab you something and you can eat and run, but the girls and I are dying for an update. I mean, we're assuming things are going well because you've been locked up tight with your new man, but we want details."

Knowing that she wasn't going to let it go, I relented. "Fine. I'll come down for a half hour or so and eat, but I really do have to keep it short."

"Done. I hope you don't mind talking with your mouth full because I intend to live vicariously through you. This stupid dry spell is making me consider joining that hook-up site. What's it called? Tidbits?"

Laughing, I leaned back in my chair. "No, sweetie, that's not what it's called. And I don't know what you're talking about. What about that guy who asked for your number when you and Grier went out for drinks a few weeks ago?"

"Ugh. We went to coffee and he spent the entire time talking about his investments. Forget businessmen, I need a guy who uses his hands on a daily basis and knows exactly what to do with them."

I laughed. "Jordan knows what to do with his hands."

"You can tell me all about it at lunch. Go work so you can stay for the whole hour."



I have not so patiently waited for this book to come out. I fell in love with all the characters in this series in the first two books. While you can technically read this book as a standalone, I recommend reading the previous two books in the series. Otherwise, there will be some spoilers. 

Tanya Blake is a high profile divorce attorney. She sees day in and day out what could happen when you fall in love and how painful it is when it ends. She wants nothing to do with it. She loved before and all that did was end in pain. The man she really loved up and left her. No way is she going to open her heart up to him again. 

Jordan Hawke knew what he left behind in Dallas when he took a job in NYC. Now he realized he can't live without her. He will do whatever it takes to make Tanya realize that they need to be together. That love is worth it.

C.C. didn't disappoint with this book. It was full of emotion, humor, and plenty of hot scenes. Tanya and Jordan's chemistry was hot enough to catch the pages on fire. We also get to catch up with all the girls and get a glimpse into what they are up to today. They have the best lunches with the best conversations. They really are best friends. 

Tanya and Jordan's path to HEA isn't easy but it's worth it. Both have a history of heartbreak from childhood and watching them grow from that and grow as a couple was flawlessly done by C.C. 

I highly recommend picking up this series. They are all quick reads and you will fall in love with all the characters. You will always finish with a smile on your face and that warm feeling in your heart.

Displaying SomedaySoon_Amazon_iBooks.jpg

One mouth watering temptation...

All Daisy Goldsmith wants is to get out of her small town, leaving behind the bullies who've taunted her. Attending culinary school in New York has always been her biggest dream---a dream she's not confident enough to pursue. After all, she's nothing but a "fat cow." But when her brother's best friend, the man who's always secretly held her heart, moves back to town after college, everything changes for Daisy.
One scrumptious nibble...
The Goldsmith house has always been Jon Roberts' sanctuary from the crazy of his life. With a broken and dysfunctional family, Jon embraces the Goldsmiths like his own. After getting a real glimpse of the woman Daisy's becoming, Jon is torn between his loyalty to the family and his desire for his best friend's little sister.  

One delectable bite...  

As Daisy and Jon spend more time together, they can't resist the attraction between them. Once they've had a taste, nothing can keep them apart--not their dreams, their families, or the difference in their age. Can someday turn into forever or will they bite off more than they can handle?

We Said Forever by Marie James Release Day Blitz






Title: We Said Forever
Author: Marie James
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 15, 2017







Rock bottom.



They say the only way to go from there is up, but what is “up” when you’re born into someone else’s rock bottom?



At ten, football became my first love. It’s what got me out of the house away from my self-destructive family. My love for football landed me at Las Vegas University with a full ride scholarship, and the orange on my jersey was my favorite color…until my eyes landed on the red dress Fallyn wore the night we met.



At twenty-one, I jumped off the cliff into the unknown the second Fallyn McIntyre danced in my arms at a party. I had the greatest girl in the world and the opportunity to play college ball every Saturday. My rock bottom was looking up, thanks to my two first loves.



Parties, sex, and football—life was perfect. But one drink too many, and my world came crashing down. When I chose pills over my second love, my head told me it was the best decision I ever made. The pills keep me warm and protect me from the distance Fallyn created. Percs don’t judge me. They make me feel alive. 



Threes.

They say the best things come in threes, but one leads to a stable future, one is my salvation, and the other drags me to hell—a hell I’d willingly burn in for eternity…if it weren’t for my second love.












I didn't know what to think about this book when I first started reading it.  It was your typical college romance book with a geeky girl who likes to study falling for the star of the football team.  To say I was a little skeptical that I was going to get anything new out of this was an understatement.  I kept reading though because I am not one to give up on a book.  That is when I learned that I was wrong. It may have started out that way, but it was about to do a huge 360 and it was going to take me through an emotional power ride that I was not sure I was going to be able to get off of.  
Yes, Fallyn was a college student at the beginning of this book, but by the end she is one of the strongest women I have ever read.  She has no one to lean on for the most part and she never gave up, and she has some major crap happen in her life.
Blaze is destine for greatness.  His mom is dead from a drug overdose and his father is AWAL. He only has football to look forward to in his life until he meets Fallyn.  The question is, can he live without the game on the field?
Drugs is a huge part of this story, and I am not talking about your everyday variety.  If drugs are a trigger for you, then you may not want to read this book.  If you can look past it then it is worth the time you have to invest to read this book.
I will say at times that it was a big of a drag and some of the middle could have been done without, but it added to the final ending of the story.  
You just need to ask yourself, if you ever were to hit rock bottom, what is the one thing that would push you to make the change in the right direction.

Turning to face the guy who is either too stupid or too drunk to take a hint, my eyes land on the handsome face of a tall blond with the lightest blue eyes I’ve ever seen.

The smirk on his face clearly indicates he believes I should be impressed. And I am. There’s no doubt about it. I’m completely fascinated by the ego this douchebag emits with one simple look. Without a word, I let my eyes trail from the top of his purposely mussed hair that probably took longer to fix than mine to the orange chucks adorning his big feet.

He allows the perusal, awaiting my approval. Cocking an eyebrow at his blatant, pompous attitude, I push his hands off my hips.

“Not a chance, buddy,” I say before turning back toward the kitchen.

My legs tremble, wobbling on my already unsteady heels. I release a long, slow breath, hoping he disappeared into the crowd. The last thing I need is for him to notice the way my eyes lingered on his stubbled jaw and the muscles of his chest even his clothes can’t hide. I’m almost certain he could sense my quick, unmasked arousal. One look was all it took for this man to creep his way under my skin and throb in my core. He’s got self-entitled, bad boy, asshole written all over him—character traits I would have dropped anything for a few years ago. Not today, though. Those are flaws I left in Utah when I graduated high school.

The same firm grip reaches for me again, wrapping all the way around my body and pulling my back against an incredibly strong chest.

I close my eyes for a moment, allowing only a second of contact before turning around and readying my hand to slap him across the face for taking such liberties without my permission—just another alpha asshole attribute that used to make me swoon.

“You need to get your—”

His finger covers my lips, preventing me from getting my words out. My attempt at what I’m sure was going to be a very eloquent threat against his manhood falters as he pulls me closer to his body. His leg somehow finds its way between mine as he squats a couple inches to decrease the differences in our height.

The strong hand that has reached for me twice tonight is around my back, fingers splayed against the thin red fabric. The finger that halted my words trails down the column of my damp neck before gripping around at my nape. Gooseflesh follows the trail, racing over my fevered skin. He holds me against him, guiding me to the rhythm I hated until this very second. Like the traitorous slut she is, my body molds against him, every soft inch against his hardness.

“I don’t,” I begin again, only to have his hand leave my neck to push another finger against my parted lips.

I watch, enthralled and utterly stupid, as his bottom lip rolls between his teeth at the same time his thumb sweeps over mine.

I cave, wholeheartedly capitulating to the moment. Ignoring the warning bells going off in my head, screaming at me to bolt through the front door and not look back, I grip the silky athletic fabric of his jersey and pull him closer. A knowing grin lights his face and sparkles in the crystal blue of his eyes.

One song blends into another as our bodies close every millimeter of distance. No words are spoken as the countdown begins. No promises are made when the clock strikes midnight. No way I’ll survive this man when his breath becomes mine. No chance I’ll see him again when swaying all night turns into dancing tongues. No possibility of keeping my promise of no bad boys when one hand grips my nape and the other squeezes my ass.

Alcohol has never really been my thing. The memory of the first time I drank heavy liquor in high school is enough to make my stomach sour, but the bourbon on this guy’s lips is the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. It’s, hands down, the most satisfying thing I’ve tasted since the ice cream I had after getting my tonsils removed when I was seven. I savor every fraction of a second, every slow glide of his tongue against mine, each time his lips pull back a fraction and turn up to smile against mine.

Without so much as one spoken word, this man has managed to master my body, persuading it to beg for more, coaxing whimpers from my mouth when he pulls away, only to ensure it pants a seductive moan when those skilled lips find my neck.

Central Texas is where Marie calls home and has lived most of her life.

Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn't expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot...to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way. 

 He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off. 

 Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm's-length.  

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.  

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.
