EXCERPT

Wednesday rolls around way too fast. I have a whole evening with Savannah. It’s been really nice these past four days that she’s been out of my life. Yet, the whole time, I’ve been craving the way we snip at each other.

I need help.

I cut my engine outside her building and look up. Apparently, she lives up on the first floor and faces out toward the road.

Is she looking at me right now?

Why I feel the need to get out and buzz her apartment, I don’t know, but somehow, I find myself getting out of the car and walking toward the building. I stop at the front door, realising that Heidi told me what floor Savannah is on but not the number. Or she might have told me, and I just didn’t listen.

This is a great start.

I’m about to call my sister when I see Savannah through the glass, walking down the stairs to ground level.

Fuck me.

Has she always looked like that?

She’s wearing a pair of dark blue skinny jeans and a grey off-the-shoulder shirt, but she looks sexier than any other woman I’ve ever seen in a little dress.

Why don’t I like her again?

Her steely eyes, looking even more prominent with the colour of her top, warily eye me. Our last encounter wasn’t exactly pleasant.

She opens the door and smiles. “Hi, Kent.”

My back stiffens. “Savannah.”

“Are you sure you don’t mind taking me tonight? I can Uber.”

And there it is. This is why she fucking bothers me so much. I feel like telling her to call a fucking Uber then. She always sounds so unsure of herself, like every tiny thing a person does for her is some massive inconvenience. Why?

“It’s fine,” I spit.

She folds her arms, carefully because her fractured arm hasn’t healed. It does take away a little of the dramatic flair she was going for. “Do you need to take a nap before we go?”

“What?”

“You’re cranky.”

“You’re too polite.”

“Being polite is a bad thing?”

I flex my jaw. “Yes.”

“Fine. Get in the car, and take me.”

The intent behind her words is clear; however, I hear it completely different and laugh.

She rolls her eyes. “Don’t be a knobhead, Kent. Take me to your parents’ house, I mean.”

“Knobhead. I’ve not heard that one in a while.”

Savannah takes another long breath. “I really don’t know why I thought accepting a lift from you would be a good idea. In fact, I didn’t. I stillthink it’s a bad idea.”

“You always follow through with bad ideas?”

“Tonight, I am.”

Fuck yeah. I love this fighting side of her. It’s like, when I rile her up enough, the cover slips, revealing the real Savannah. I’m not sure if she’s hiding something the way Freya was.

“You should work on that. I don’t do anything I don’t want to.”

She tilts her head to the side, fire and determination in her eyes. “Oh, you wanted me to come tonight? And you wanted to be the one to pick me up?”

“You’re hot when you’re angry, Savannah.”

Actually, she’s hot all the time. It’s just, right now, she’s the whole package.

“You always use bullshit like that to deflect from someone calling you out?”

“You’re the first woman to call me out.”

“Why doesn’t that surprise me?” she mutters.

“Do you want to argue on your doorstep all night or get to my parents’ for dinner? I’m cool with either, just checking to see which way you’re leaning.”

She drops her arms, one still bound tightly in a splint. “I’m hungry.”

“Excellent, let’s go then.”

Rebel Heir…Review

So sorry I am late with this, my birthday was this week and I’ve been celebrating so absolutely NO writing had been done. Now, before moving forward please note that this book is part of a pair and the 2nd book releases May 22nd and I will be there for it!!!

Rebel HeirHow to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add–especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting–and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Review: As much as I love me some Vi and Pe (Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward) you guys probably think I’ve drunk the Kool-Aid. Well, I have not they are just that good. Every book I’ve read that they’ve co-authored has been a 4 or 5-star read.

Gia is a writer and she is in the Hamptons for the summer hoping to get inspiration to finish a book she is writing. I really enjoy Gia, she is super sweet, has an ugly doll collection and is honest to a fault. Well, maybe not a fault but she is open about a lot and it is refreshing. She is also borderline crazy…there is no way in hell I am spending my $10,000 publishing advance on a summer SHARE house in the Hamptons. SHARE. As in multiple roommates. $10,000 what in the actual EFF am I getting for 10K. It better come with a personal chef for the summer, be right on the beach and it BETTER NOT RAIN the entire summer! Ok, I’m back from that tangent. Gia is a great character and I am excited to see where this goes although I am pretty sure how this ends, I can’t wait to read all the messy that will ensue before it does.

Rush is the man. I love everything about him except that he smokes. Cigarettes smell like ass and I really don’t understand the appeal but to each his own. Rush is so cool that I want to be his friend. He doesn’t ooze sex to me like a lot of other characters but I like him a lot and can’t wait to go on his emotional journey when we get to book 2 because it is definitely going to affect him more than Gia, IMO. And no I can’t tell you because it will definitely ruin the book for you, and I wouldn’t do that. All of that to say I give this start 4.5 stars.

Havoc…Review

So, it’s taken me a few days but I’ve finished Havoc by Debra Anastasia, not because it was bad because it was bad ass, but because I had to stop twice because my husbutt is a whiney baby and needed me.

HavocI named myself. I took the word Animal out of their mouths, wore it like a badge of honor then shoved it down their throats. I’ve fought for what I have. I see you coming, before you even know you want a piece of me. In a city riddled with warring families, I’ll rise up between them. My people, the broken souls I gather will have power by the time I’m done with them.

I protect mine.

Him. My brother, Nix.

Her. The girl that is the only home I’ve ever had. She knows me.

I’m coming at you, Sweetness. Stay ready.

This book is not my typical go-to read but I am glad I read it. The book follows the life of Animal (seriously this is his name) and his friend to lover T. The lives of this unlikely pair make Annie’s Hard Knock Life look like a cake walk. I felt like I was in a gangster crime boss movie the entire time I was reading it. The sex and clubs, money and drugs, pimps and hoes all take a backseat to the love between Animal and T that I didn’t see coming but when it came I was like, WHOA!

Animal is the man and when you get to the sex scenes… Holy-Blownout-Vagina Batman!! I mean the guy is 6’8″ tall with a peen the size of a tree trunk. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but you get my point. I love how protective Animal is of everyone, and although he’s had a very rough life he never lets that be the reason he’s an asshole.

T is so badass that I loved when she was on the page! She is like Uma Thurman from Kill Bill and I found myself super excited when she was kicking ass. She didn’t verbally speak much but the chapters told from her pov were my favorite until the switch. I can’t tell you what exactly that means without ruining the story, but I will say that that is what made me go from 4.5 to 3.5 stars. I felt like “resolution” and HEA came out of nowhere. Like these aren’t my gangsta characters I just spent 80% of the book falling in love with.

So, there you have it, folks. Havoc is a damn good read if you love this type of story. I give it a 4.5 until 80% and a 2.5 for the rest which in my sketchy ass math equates to a 3.5 kick-ass story.
