Peter Parker Penn.
Unlike the superhero his mother named him after, Parker is no good guy.
In fact, if there’s a picture in the dictionary under anti-hero, it’s his.
Parker’s spent his life trying to get back on the right side of the tracks, but each step he takes forward, he takes two more steps back.
To save one, he hurts others. To make this good, he turns that bad.
For appearances’ sake, he plays the part. He does what people expect him to do—mostly. And at the end of each day, he goes back to his lonely apartment and wishes he was a different person. One who could fix the things he’s broken.
Then Kayla Nash forces her way into his life, and the world as he knows it is irrevocably changed.
Everything he thinks he has right is wrong. And everything he thinks is wrong is oh, so right.
One thing leads to another, and suddenly he’s growing a conscience, and trying to prove to her that he’s as bad as everybody says he is.
Yet she won’t listen.
She’s convinced that she can save him.
Little does she know, Parker isn’t worth saving, and never will be.

 


I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Max’s Redemption by @wilder_leslie #coverreveal #romance #suspense

Title: Max’s Redemption
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: Romantic Suspense Standalone
Release Date: November 7, 2017
Max: 
Harper Campbell was beautiful, smart, and innocent. I’d loved her even before I knew I did. 
There was just one problem. She was my best friend’s sister. She was off-limits in ways I couldn’t begin to explain, but I couldn’t help myself. 
We were just kids when we fell in love—young and carefree. The world was right there at our fingertips. Then tragedy struck, and I felt I was to blame. 
Knowing I would be a constant reminder of the heartbreak I’d caused, I did the only thing I thought I could—I left. 
Harper:
I’d loved him for as long as I could remember, and losing him almost broke me. 
I tried to move on. 
I tried to forget. 
But how do you forget the one person you loved with all your heart and soul? 

I never thought I’d see him again, but with one unexpected encounter, he was back. 

I never believed in second chances. I’d always thought there was no way to go back and fix the mistakes we’d made, but I learned that it wasn’t about changing the past. Second chances are for proving that we can be better—even after we’ve failed.
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

Stability Rocked

As Wade’s whirlwind romance with Chloe starts to stabilize, his ex-girlfriend turns up desperate to destroy what firm ground the two have forged. Wade’s love for Chloe has grown so deep that he’ll do anything to protect what he has with her – even if it means spinning a new web of lies.

The Agony of Betrayal

Matriarch and Mother

Seeing her daughter suffering is breaking Regina’s heart. She yearns to give all the help she can but… Ben is scheming to use Runway to financially back his bid for Governor. Will her struggles to keep her family safe come at the expense of her daughter?

Murder!

Wade finally gives in and goes to his ex even though he knows he shouldn’t. But she ends up getting killed and the cops finger him as the killer. Only the real killer is still on the loose and hunting…

Excerpt

What a week it had been so far, and how had he spent it not touching her? She’d slept in this house two nights this week, right next to him, and he hadn’t touched her. She’d slept in his bed, on his sofa.

Within days the stress of what was going on around them had transformed them into that couple who merely existed together and did nothing.

“Wade.” She placed her hands on her hips and shifted her weight from one foot to the other, making her long blonde hair flow about her delicate shoulders.

Wade didn’t want to speak, because if he did he’d have to tell her what was going on, and he didn’t want to do that. Right now he just wanted to truly forget everything that was happening and leave it outside the house, outside the room, outside them.

His fingers yearned to touch her, his mouth to taste her. Wade moved away from the door and walked over to the woman who filled his fantasies. He reached out and cupped her face, loving the feel of her skin, loving the feel of the real her that rivaled any image he could possibly conjure up in his mind.

The real her was everything and more, enough to drive him wild for as long as he’d known her.

-Letter P – REKINDLED @AprilAtoZ #atozchallenge #firefighterromance

P is for Paige (Paige Tyler)

REKINDLED (Dallas Fire & Rescue)

Synopsis
Jax is a firefighter who just saves his best friend’s sister from a hotel fire. He thinks Skye is sexy but did not make a move because he fears what his best friend would do to him.

Skye is trying to start a new business in her hometown while trying to steer clear of her overbearing brother. She convinces Jax to help her when she needs a place to stay. While in close proximity, their emotions reveal feelings that they have had for each other for years but never before acted on them.

Opinion
This is my kind of book! My favorite trope is friends to lovers!
Image result for it's a love story gif
Jax and Skye were not besties, but friendly to each other. I still count this as a friends-to-lovers story because they knew each other for a long time before they got together. Plus they knew each other on a level outside of the romance. I believe this will contribute to a higher level of relationship success.

While I don’t mind violence (not gratuitous) in the story, I did not want Jax and Skye to have any conflict. The stalker aspect of the story was a bit over the top for me considering how sweet their love story was. I felt traumatized, like I had been the one kidnapped.
Image result for can I get a Xanax gif
Other than that, the story flowed well. Skye’s brother Dane was super protective, but knew when to back off. Once they got together, he was pretty accepting of their whole romance. I hope the author has plans to write his story in a future book. It will be on my TBR list.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. Jax is a HOTTIE FIREFIGHTER. Need I say anything else?

Cover Reveal: WRATH OF THE ANCIENTS by Catherine Cavendish #horror #suspense #amreading

WRATH OF THE ANCIENTS
by Catherine Cavendish
Genre: Horror/Suspense
Pub Date: 10/24/2017
DESTINY IN DEATH
Egypt, 1908
Eminent archeologist Dr. Emeryk
Quintillus has unearthed the burial chamber of Cleopatra. But this
tomb raider’s obsession with the Queen of the Nile has nothing to
do with preserving history. Stealing sacred and priceless relics, he
murders his expedition crew, and flees—escaping the quake that
swallows the site beneath the desert sands . . .
Vienna, 1913
Young widow Adeline Ogilvy has accepted
employment at the mansion of Dr. Quintillus, transcribing the late
professor’s memoirs. Within the pages of his journals, she
discovers the ravings of a madman convinced he possessed the ability
to reincarnate Cleopatra. Within the walls of his home, she is
assailed by unexplained phenomena: strange sounds, shadowy figures,
and apparitions of hieroglyphics.
Something pursued Dr. Quintillus from
Egypt. Something dark, something hungry. Something tied to the fate
and future of Adeline Ogilvy . . .
Following a varied career in sales,
advertising and career guidance, Catherine Cavendish is now the
full-time author of a number of paranormal, ghostly and Gothic horror
novels, novellas and short stories. She was the 2013 joint winner of
the Samhain Gothic Horror Anthology Competition, with Linden Manor,
which was featured in the anthology What Waits in the Shadows. Cat’s
novels include The Pendle Curse, Saving Grace Devine, and Dark
Avenging Angel. She lives with her long-suffering husband and black
(trainee) cat. They divide their time between Liverpool and a
260-year-old haunted apartment in North Wales.
