Cover Photog: Wander Aguiar
Cover Model: Issac Dawson
From the day she came into my life, I knew I couldn’t walk away from this girl. She was beautiful, a light in this dark and messed up world, but I saw it in her eyes.
I saw the pain she carried, and in that moment, I made a promise.
Her demons would pay. All of them. They didn’t know what I was capable of or what my MC could do.
As I now look down at yet another lifeless body, I smile. I always keep my promises.
One more to go, and he’s the one I really want.
“LeAnn Ashers always delivers a story that is endlessly sweet with women as bad@$# as their men and she definitely brought that with Aiden. This book will have you crying happy tears, full-on swooning and will most definitely be stealing your heart.” – Brittany, Red Hatter Book Blog
“Aiden and Gracie what a beautiful yet heartbreaking story, like all LeAnn's books, It just pulls you in and doesn’t let you go till you have well and truly finished. There will be tears, excitement, laughter, anger and wanting to beat the shit out people. It gives you all those feels.” – Karlie, Goodreads
“This is by far my favorite book by Leann to date. This book hit all my emotions. Aiden & Gracie were prefect together, & believe me, when you find out how they met, :swoon:. Never a dull moment when you have both MCs in one place, always great to see old friends. This series is always evolving & each one is perfection. It was a powerful book & I think will touch many people. You’re incredibly brave, lady!” – Sarah Armstrong, Goodreads
“Just finished reading. I relate to this book probably more than the others and let me just say Leann Asher outdid herself on this one... don’t know how that’s possible because I didn’t think she could get any better but she knocked it out of the park with this one. It had a little bit of everything in there. I cried, I laughed, I LOVED!!!” – Jackie, Goodreads
“Gracelyn.” He is looking at me in such a tender and beautiful way. “I would never hurt you, trust me.” He whispers the last part.
“I trust you, Aiden.” I touch the side of his face and, to show that I do, I sit up and take off my shirt. I don’t have a bra on.
“I will fucking cherish your trust, baby. Let me love you. I know you’re scared, I can see it in your eyes, but being afraid of me is something you never have to be. I will protect you, cherish you, and take care of you.”
With the back of my hand, I wipe the tears off my face. I know I seem like such a baby, but being hurt by the person who is supposed to protect you more than any other—it hurts right to your core. I’ve been failed by so many people, and I expect it from everyone.
“I don’t deserve you,” I whisper, feeling this from the bottom of my heart.
He looks genuinely shocked. “Don’t ever fucking say that. You deserve the fucking world, baby, and I plan on handing it to you.”
LeAnn Ashers is a blogger-turned-author who spends her days reading and writing. She released her debut novel early 2016, and can't wait to see where this adventure continues to take her. LeAnn enjoys writing about strong-minded females and swoon-worthy, protective alpha males who love their women unconditionally.

I'm a feisty redheaded Canadian/American who fell in love with romance novels when my friend Phil bought me a Kindle that hasn't left my side since.
My favorite books to read are anything taboo and super sick and twisted. I'm not sure I will ever write anything dark, but I would love to give it a shot one day.
I live in South Florida with my high school sweetheart and three kids.
I grew up in Burlington, ON, Canada but made the move to South Florida in 2013 and definitely don't miss the snow.
I'm not sure where this writing journey will take me but either way, I know it will be a fun new adventure, and I'm super excited about it.

5 Heart Review by Lorena
I absolutely love second chance stories because whoever messes up has a chance to redeem themselves and Darrian definitely redeemed himself in Hearts and Flowers.
I get it, Darrian was a major jerk to Nora in the first book BUT he thought he had a reason to hate her and in the process of hating her, he fell in love with her and when he found out the truth, it was too late for him to go back and explain to Nora why he did what he did because Nora had left and wasn't planning on coming back.
Darrian will do anything in his power to try and win his girl back. We learn a lot about Darrian in this book and I totally was on board with him rectifying his mistakes and showing Nora that he truly did love her.
Ms. Brooks has totally made me a fan of her writing and I can't wait to see what she has planned for us next!

“Heard you got banged up a couple months ago, D.” He grins. “You still look pretty though.”
“Shut the fuck up.” I lean forward wishing again I could feel his blood against my knuckles. Rage courses through my veins and I breathe a few times to find control again.
“Little birdie told me a certain puntawas arriving soon.”
“Stay away from her, Rom. I’ll give you and your crew one warning. Next time you talk about her like that or any of you even so much as look at her wrong, I’ll make sure you never see the outside of these walls again.”
“She’s just another bitch, D. She left you, didn’t she? Found a nice little place with her aunt in Seattle.” He cocks his head to the side. “You want to fuck up our arrangement for some side action?”
“We have no arrangement. You’re a drug dealer. It’s not my problem you were so wasted you continuously hooked up with my sloppy seconds. Not my problem your crew isn’t loyal, and you’re stuck behind that glass.” I shrug my shoulders. His eyes blaze when I point at the glass. One thing I’ve learned about Roman over the years is that he is claustrophobic. Must suck to suck. “Stay away from Nora.” I hang up the receiver, not caring what else he has to say. It already bothers me how much he knows about her situation, which only confirmed someone is watching her like we feared. I look up again as he taps the receiver on the glass, motioning for me to pick up. Standing, I grab the phone before bringing it back to my ear.
“Wait just a second now.” He leans as far back in his chair as he can. He looks too comfortable. “I think you’re forgetting that we don’t work for you. I don’t work for you or your father. That bitch…messed with something larger than you, the crew, me or your saint of a father.”
“You’ll never get out,” I threaten again. My voice is surprisingly calm. I can feel the tension vibrating through my body. He smiles smugly, getting up from his chair. At his full height, Roman is just a hair shorter than me. His face tightens, he fixes me with his gaze, his soulless dark irises flicker.
“It ain’t me you got to worry about, King,” he says before dropping the receiver in place and hitting the button next to his door. Frustrated, I hit mine as well, bracing my arm against the side while I wait to be let out.

“How’s this going to work?” she asked. He surveyed the room. “I was thinking right here on this table.” He winked at her. Her mouth fell open, then she shook her head. Then she laughed. “On the table? Really? Why does that sound like a line too? Does it work for you?” Her hand went up. “Wait, don’t answer that.”Ryan smiled. “Lines don’t work with you. That’s another thing I really like about you.”“Oh.” She licked her lips. Focus, Thiel. What had she been talking about before he’d brought up having sex on a table? “You meant working together, didn’t you? You think that will be a problem?” “Yes, don’t you?” “Why Ms. Capone, are you saying it’s hard to concentrate around me?” He leaned down and kissed her neck and then slowly moved up toward her ear. “Um. A little.” A small moan escaped her mouth. She stepped back. “We can’t do that.”He stalked toward her. “We can’t?”“Not if we want to get any work done. And you can’t look at me like that either.” “Like what?” “Like you want to throw me on this table.”“Sorry, I can’t help that.” She put more distance between them. “Ryan, I need us to just be friends.”
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I am always looking for new to me authors that write romantic suspense and Danielle Pays fit that bill. While Pursued is the second book in this series it can be read as a total standalone (like it was for me).

Series: O'Connor Brothers
Author: A. S. Kelly
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 20, 2019
I’ve never liked lies. I’m an honest guy: I say exactly what I’m thinking without any filter. Without considering the consequences.
That’s why people always think I’m an idiot. Someone who only wants to have fun, who never has any problems.
Someone who never worries about the future.
I’ve made my decision.
I’ve chosen myself and left everything else behind.
But what happens when karma comes back to turn your life upside-down? When you find yourself standing in front of someone who could break down all of your walls?
The only woman capable of looking past the façade, and seeing Nick O’Connor for what he really is: a liar.
Would it make sense to keep lying? And, for the first time in my life, could I live with just being Nick?
It’s a dangerous game, a match to be played.
The last match. My match.
I’m Nick O’Connor, and the whistle’s about to blow: I’m about to face the biggest match of my life. But will I be able to fight until the end? Or will I give in, like I always do?
Because I already know I’m going to lose this challenge. We both will.
Because she deserves everything.
And I have nothing to give.

Blurb: Welcome to their kingdom...
I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am...back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.
And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind.
Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to.
This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.
They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt.
If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.
WARNING: Royal Hearts Academy is a New Adult/High School series of standalones filled with drama, a touch of angst, and boys who are bad to the bone.
This series is recommended for mature readers due to graphic language and sexual content.
Excerpt: “Is that why you wore this sexy little shirt tonight?” His warm breath tickles the side of my neck. “Hoping to get my attention.”
That earns me a husky chuckle. “Too bad.” He presses his lips against my throat. “Because it’s working. You have all my attention.” He walks his fingers down my torso. “Question is…what are you going to do with it?”

Laya Marston’s husband, Cameron, a daredevil enthusiast, always said this before heading off on his next adventure. He was the complete opposite of her, ready and willing to dive off a cliff-face, or parachute across a canyon—and Laya loved him for it. But she was different: pragmatic, regimented, devoted to her career and to supporting Cameron from the sidelines of his death-defying feats.
Opposites attract, right?
But when Cameron dies suddenly and tragically, all the stages of grief go out the window. Laya becomes lost in denial, living in the delusion that Cameron will come back to her. She begins posting on his Facebook page, reminiscing about their life together, and imagining new adventures for the two of them.
Micah Evans, a young and handsome architect at Laya’s father’s firm, is also stuck––paralyzed by the banal details of his career, his friendships, and his love life. He doesn’t know what he’s looking for, only that there is someone out there who can bring energy and spirit to the humdrum of his life.
When Micah discovers Laya’s tragic and bizarre Facebook posts, he’s determined to show Laya her life is still worth living. Leaving her anonymous gifts and notes, trying to recreate the sense of adventure she once shared with her late husband, Micah finds a new passion watching Laya come out of the darkness. And Laya finds a new joy in the experiences Micah has created for her.
But for Laya, letting another man in still feels like a betrayal to her late husband. Even though Micah may be everything she could wish for, she wonders if she deserves to find happiness again.
Written with Renée Carlino’s signature “tender and satisfying” (Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Maybe in Another Life) prose, this warm and compassionate novel shows us how powerful the courage to love and live again truly is.

Renée Carlino is one of those authors that I can read with no idea what is in store and I devour every page. Right from the get go I'm always sucked in and The Last Post was no exception. The opening alone broke my heart. And the more I read, the more my chest ached.

Her books have been featured in national publications, including USA TODAY, Huffington Post, Latina magazine, and Publisher's Weekly. She lives in Southern California with her husband, two sons, and their sweet dog June. When she's not at the beach with her boys or working on her next project, she likes to spend her time reading, going to concerts, and eating dark chocolate.
