“What are you doing here, Jules?” 



“I wanted to see you. We haven’t talking in a few days, and I just wanted to check in.” I laid my hands flat against the books; they offered comfort. 



“You should have called.” He stared off toward his desk. 

“Are you excepting company?” 



“No. It’s been a long week; I’m tired and I have a headache.” 



I stepped toward him, stood a few inches away, but he didn’t drop his hands. 



“You should let me rub your temples.” I reached up, and he grabbed my hand and stepped away. 



“Don’t.” 



“You don’t even want me to touch you?” I asked over the grapefruit size lump in my throat. 



“Jules, please just go.” 



“No. Why?” I asked. “I just want to be near you. Why is that so bad?” 



“It’s not bad, but I just can’t.” 



“Why? What is it?” 



“You wouldn’t understand.” 



“Then make me understand.” 



His eyes flashed, and he stepped toward me. I welcomed the warmth. His demeanor softened for a split second. I saw it. I felt it, but then it was gone, and he slumped back on the bookshelves with his chin to his chest. 



“I can’t,” he said. 



The words crushed me yet his tone scared me. I stood in front of him. He shuddered but didn’t look at me. I bent down, so I could see his eyes. 



“Why?” I asked. “What are you afraid of?” 



He lifted his head. He reached up and ran the back of his hand down my tear-soaked face. 



I shuddered. 



“I’m afraid if I tell you, if I show you what I am and what I’m truly like, then you’ll stop looking at me like that.” His hand dropped to his side. “I’d really miss that.” 



“How do I look at you?” I asked. I knew the answer but wanted to hear how he saw it.
“Like I’m a king. You have the ultimate faith in me. I don’t deserve it.” His head dropped again. 



“Then earn it,” I said, my tone stronger than I felt on the inside. Inside, I felt like I might crumble any minutes if he didn’t touch me. 



“Oh, Julia … How?” He raised his head. 



I spotted a glimmer of hope in his eyes. 



“Keep it simple. What do you need me to do?” 



His eyes grew dark as he approached me. I backed up into the bookshelf, and he placed his hands on either side of my head. 



“Do as I say?” 



I nodded. My heart raced, and I was sure he could hear it thumping like crazy. He placed his hand over my heart, and I drew in a sharp breath. His fingers tapped against my sternum. 



“Look at me.” 



I turned my head up and stared into his eyes. His hands rose and surround my throat. He didn’t squeeze, but panic set in. 



“I’m not going to hurt you, Jules.” He pressed a little tighter. “I need you to trust me.” 



“Okay.” 



“Do you trust me?” 



I nodded. 



“Say it.” 



“I trust—” Before I finished the sentence, his lips were on mine.

Genre: Mature YA Romantic Comedy

Release Date: August 25, 2017
Cover Designer: Okay Creations, LLC
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.
She believes the secret to love is in the tropes of her favorite romance novels. He’s the best friend prepared to prove her wrong.
Then comes the bet.
If she can’t land a boyfriend for prom by recreating the ten popular tropes in her favorite romance author’s books, she has to go to the prom with her.
The glitch?
They’ve been close their entire lives. He’s the rock god and school legend, while she’s the brainy sidekick who does all his dirty breakups. Thus, finding a guy who doesn’t think they’re already an item is going to be a lot harder than she thinks.
Will she land the book boyfriend of her dreams? Or will she be forced to go to prom with her best friend?
The truth is in the pages.

 

As a child, K.R. Grace had an overactive imagination. When it was obvious she wasn’t going to change anytime soon, her mom shoved a pen and paper in her hand and said, “Write it down.” So, at the age of eight, her first story was born, and the writing hasn’t stopped since. When she’s not running with wolves, sleeping with bears, or flying with falcons, she can be found checking out local bands or watching movies about things that go “boo” in the night. She lives in East Tennessee with a dog that is afraid of his own shadow and a cat that was a mob leader in a former life.

Grond: The Raven High

Young Adult Sci-Fi

Date Published: February 28, 2017

 

In the year 2086, Earth is exhausted. The seas have been emptied, the bedrock and soil stripped of their resources, and the superheated atmosphere churns with terrible storms. Those who can afford to do so live in the limbo of virtual reality, and the billions who suffer in poverty have no work, no clean water, and no security from the chaos.

 

The only hope for those trapped on a dying Earth are the Changed—the seven bioengineered post-humans who work in their separate manufacturing facilities orbiting high above the planet. Raised from birth for their work and fully matured at ten years old, their genius provides the nanomaterials that have begun to cleanse Earth of the pollutants that have wiped out almost the entire ecosphere.

 

But for Olga Voronov, youngest of the Changed, the isolation and endless toil are not the greatest of her challenges. Down on Earth there are those who resent and fear her talents—and would prefer that humanity not be given the second chance that only she could make possible …

 

Review

Beautiful Book Cover, Beautiful Storyline, and Beautiful Characters. Yuri Hamaganov has really done an amazing job of bringing to life a Young Adult Sci-Fi story that is unique.

I loved the way he had plenty of Sci-Fi elements and action.

Hamaganov is a very talented writer and I look forward to reading more from him.

Author Bio

 

Yuri Hamaganov lives in Moscow. He created the GROND series as a present for himself when he was twelve years old. This was the story he had always dreamed of exploring, and when he realized that nobody had written it for him, he set out to do it himself.

Nowhere is Home Since you Left

 

Death, Grief, Bereavement
Date Published: 1-6-2017
Publisher: Cygnet Publications, Cygnet Media Group Inc.
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
When her beloved soul friend husband, Gerald, passed away a few years ago, and her friends and sons moved to distant cities, she found herself alone for the first time in her life.
Gerald, a professional artist, had his studio in their home. Their home was always filled with family life, art, music, joy and playfulness in the garden.
After his passing, the silence was loud. The joy was gone — her paradise — a lost paradise.
She had two choices, either to fall apart or to get on with life.  She chose the latter and traveled to find a home, a community — however – nowhere was home – since he left.
In writing Nowhere Is Home … Since You Left, Madeleine Zeldin shares her insights, emotions, and true life experiences as she journeys solo throughout the years following the sorrowful death of her soul mate, internationally renowned artist, Gerald Zeldin. She presents years of storytelling based on travel journals she wrote while traveling to countries such as Mexico, Philippines, Ecuador, France, Spain, and California, U.S.A.  Zeldin also reveals the intensity of the pain and sorrow experienced in her grief, along with the fulfillment, satisfaction and logistics of international travel. In her travels she volunteered in the medical field and gave help where help was needed. She brings inspiration to those of her generation, the 60’s, who find themselves alone.
Through her evocative tales of adventure, Zeldin reveals this life-changing knowledge to the world!
But ultimately where is Home?
 
Review
Empowering and Thought-Provoking and extremely emotional. What would you do in Madeline’s situation. How low would you get? Would you find the power to rise up and move on? I think this novel really shows you one person’s experience and either you have gone through something similar, or you start to think about what if’s. I think it gives you a positive outlook on top of the emotional and heartbreaking themes. Is it sad and do you feel like it would be an awful situation? Yes! But I liked the way we got both the lowest lows and the rising from the ashes so to speak of her journey.
Sorry if my thoughts are a little convoluted. I’m still processing my emotions.
About the Author
Professionally, Ms. Zeldin has been engaged in nursing and teaching. She has successfully advocated for changes in the medical field, along with homebirth and Midwifery. In her travels to out of the way places, she has been a keen observer of people and distant cultures, often writing a ‘sketch’ of her experience.
Madeleine is an advocate of advocacy.
Madeleine believes we can all make a difference.
Throughout her adult life she has successfully advocated for change. When she felt change was needed, she rallied. She lobbied. She started a group or joined a group.
In the late ’70’s, when her town council was considering tearing down old heritage properties in the name of ‘Progress’, she helped start a group of interested citizens in order to save these heritage properties. ‘Progress’ was stopped and many heritage buildings were saved due to the group’s diligence.
Again in the early ’80’s, Madeleine herself changed local hospital policy to allow midwives to accompany couples in the birthing room, after the hospital refused to allow her midwife to enter.
She belonged to a group of informed parents who advocated for changes in the policies for vaccinations.
Madeleine volunteered at the local Health Center and advocated for improved health care for refugees. Improvements were made.
She successfully advocated for her soul-friend, late husband Gerald’s medical care throughout their six year battle with cancer. Many important changes were implemented in our medical system due to her persistence.
Madeleine has been ahead of her time in her generation. She had many professions throughout her life including social worker, teacher, registered nurse. She also joined a group of midwives and again successfully advocated for choices in childbirth.
However, she considers her most important achievement as being a mother and grandmother. She has instilled in her family a sense of love and empathy and has taught them to love the earth and its people.

All’s fair in love and business…

Alexander Worth has two great passions—his family business, and his control. Being president and CEO of Worth Luxury Goods allows him to exercise both. No one crosses him.

But then Tessa Crawford crosses his path. She’s professional, shy, voluptuous—and his employee. His legendary control is all that’s holding him back from his desire for her. Risking the business is the one thing he can’t do.

After rising above her disadvantaged childhood, Tessa knows the last thing she should do is risk throwing it all away by falling into bed with her sexy boss. But on an extended European business trip, all self-imposed barriers burn away in the heat of their sizzling chemistry.

That’s not the only fire burning when they return home—whispers of corporate espionage have become a full-blown scandal. Alex’s loyalties lie with his company, and Tessa is left to smolder alone. She’s determined to move on, to get over her fling—

Only she’s carrying a souvenir in her belly.

Review 

Another great installment in Chrisinte Hart’s New Adult Sci-Fi series.

Everything from the Action/Drama/Romance was heightened and built upon from the first, Hart wasn’t messing around when she wrote this.

At the beginning we are are inundated with information to get us caught up, but being that it was a continuation, I didn’t feel the amount of detail used was necessary, a refresher is always nice, but I don’t want to feel like I’m entering the world for the first time again. You definitely can not jump into this without having read the first, but if you haven’t read it in a while, it will serve as a great catch-up.

Overall a great addition to the New Adult Sci-Fi series world. I look forward to seeing where she takes the characters next.

Casual Affair



Title: Casual Affair (Slow Seduction #1)

Author: Melanie Munton 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 24, 2017 

Cover Designer: Entangled Publishing

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC. 

Bea Paxton is a free spirit. She loves her fledgling interior design business, having fun, and she loves men. But only temporarily. Rule #1 is no relationships, no love, no commitment. She likes being in charge. It’s the only way to protect herself from getting hurt again.
Zane Price is the perfect candidate for a steamy time—beautiful, built, and British. Plus, he’ll soon be moving back to England. Really perfect.
Well…except for the fact that he’s her biggest client. And he doesn’t play by her rules. Hell, no. He wants more. Much more. Which is definitely not on the agenda.
Unfortunately, his kisses are nothing short of toe-curlingly awesome. And he is distracting her—a lot—from doing her job.
She needs to stay away from him. Her livelihood depends on it.
But Zane always gets what he wants. And he wants Bea. But for right now? Or forever…?
 
She waited for just the right moment, pushing to her feet when she saw her opening. She was zoned in on her target, gun lifting in his direction—and was suddenly flying through the air. 
“Hey!”
Somebody had hold of her and they were going down. She braced herself for impact with the hard ground, but landed on a firm chest instead. A chest that smelled suspiciously like…Zane Price.
She was rolled off his body and found herself staring up at his face. He looked kind of angry. Huh. She wasn’t expecting that. She could feel his package grinding against her pelvis, so she certainly wasn’t mad about anything. A package that was quickly hardening, by the way.

 

“Did you just tackle me?” she asked in bewilderment.
She saw him swallow as his eyes flew over her face. “I believe I did, yes.”
Their position on the ground was far too sexual—not that she was doing anything about it. His upper body was hovering over hers so as not to crush her, but their lower bodies were in close contact.
 
Very close contact.
She cleared her throat. “Why?”
“Because you were about to become a casualty,” he whispered. “I saved your life.”
“My hero.” She’d meant it to sound sarcastic. But her voice came out a lot huskier than she’d intended.
He noticed.
His eyes darkened in response.
Everything below her belly clenched with need, a reaction that his own body mirrored. She felt him grow thick against her thigh, and though he didn’t say anything, she knew they were both aware of what was happening south of the border.
“And you’re still on top of me, why?”
“Because part of me is quite comfortable here,” he admitted. “And a different part of me is about to be in a world of pain once I move. I’m trying to decide which part I should listen to.”
“Do I get a say in this?”
He gave a small thrust of his hips against her, making her gasp. One quick grind that allowed her to feel the full extent of his manhood in all of its stiff glory.
She was a goner.

 

His eyelids lowered to half-mast as he took in her reaction. “Do you want a say in this?”
