Review: Positively Pippa (Ghost Falls #1) by Sarah Hegger

Positively Pippa

Sometimes you take a chance with a new author and it pays off big time, this is one of those times. After reading several dark romances I was in the mood for something a little bit lighter with less drama and angst and more romance and emotion.

Enter Pippa Turner. A woman who left her small town of Ghost Falls, as soon as she turned 18, to make a name for herself in L.A. After enjoying success as the host of a makeover show, things take a turn for the worst when her ex-boyfriend/producer humiliates her and ruins her career. With her tail between her legs, Pippa returns to Ghost Falls, and her eccentric grandmother Philomene, to lick her wounds and decide what to do with her life.

The last thing Pippa expects to find in Ghost Falls is love and happiness but when she does it begins to change her idea of what she wants out of life. With the option to go back to L.A. and continue her career or stay in Ghost Falls and explore these new feelings, Pippa faces a difficult decision.

What I loved about this book was the genuine feeling of emotions between Pippa and her grandmother as well as Pippa and Matt. None of the characters, or their reactions to situations, felt contrived or unnatural. This book was very easy to read and enjoy. I would highly recommend it and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Happy Reading 🙂

Synopsis

Jolie

Armand saved me from a despicable man, Devlin Wick.
What a name. It sounds like ‘devil’ and ‘wicked’ to me.
I wasn’t sure why, but I couldn’t remember the specifics of what Devlin had done to me, though I did recall the sheer terror I felt the last time I saw his face. It was smoky… or foggy. I’m not certain which.
If I really concentrated on that moment, I could faintly hear a male voice crying out, but Armand didn’t want me to think about that. As much as I tried to obey him, I found myself wondering about that man and that night, even though Armand insisted that he had gotten me out of an awful situation.
Armand was a vampire, and he loved my blood. He said there was something unique and special about it and that he would protect me at all costs.
He said he treasured me.
That was what I knew to be true, and that was my life.
Armand had changed me from the woman I was—the kind who would fall for such a hurtful person.
I hated Devlin Wick.

Devlin

Each night without Jolie was torture, and I couldn’t help wondering if in some small way, she was feeling the same, missing me. The second that thought crossed my mind, I saw her screaming in fear of me, clutching Armand to her fiercely, while the witch closed the incantation, removing me from her life.
I’d tried reaching out to the Twin Ravens Motorcycle Club, since I heard that despite their outlaw persona, they were secretly the good guys. But if they were, they would’ve taken up the battle, rather than refuse to help me. Nothing in their decision made sense, considering the rumors floating around, but I had to move on if I was ever going to get Jolie back.
With no other choices available, I went to The Decrees to stand before Zane Thornton and beg for his help. I would’ve dropped to my knees if that was what it took to rescue my girl. But rather than Zane joining me, his Maker, the ancient vampire Reese Kelley, agreed to fight to free Jolie from the rogue MC Soldiers of Strife, specifically their president Armand Glaceau. The members were all Stone Cold vamps, exceedingly strong and faster than any vampire I’d ever encountered.
With a team made up of Reese, some of my old crew from Corruption, Inc., and a gibbering maniac who thinks he’s the prophet Elijah, we devised a plan to rescue Jolie and eliminate as many of the Soldiers as possible in the process.
But even if we save Jolie, and she’s in my arms again…will she be the woman I loved and love me in return?
Jolie was mine once, and despite the odds against us, she will be again.
She’s my only desire.

***Devlin’s Desire is a part of the Tulsa Immortals series, a world created by Audra Hart, and this is my contribution. It contains steaming wickedly hot scenes of vivid intimacy, laugh-out-loud humor, and acts of violence. It is meant for an adult audience.***

Sneak peek

By the end of Farren’s second week, she had just about gotten the hang of things.  She’d had some opportunities to show Rayner a little of what she was capable of, and from what she could tell, he liked what he saw.

She got the impression that he hadn’t thought she would know what she was doing, and had been surprised to discover she was quite capable.

“You surprise me, Miss Fields,” he told her that Friday evening as she was packing her things to leave for the night.

“I do?” she asked, stopping what she was doing to look up at him.  She noticed he had taken his glasses off, and she had an unobstructed view of his eyes, which was a rare occurrence.  The scar that divided his left eyebrow caught her eye again, and she vowed someday to ask him how he’d gotten it.

“You do.  I had my doubts, but you’ve exceeded my expectations and proven yourself at every turn so far.”

He stood in her doorway leading to the hall, waiting for her to follow so they could walk out together.  They had stayed late that evening putting the finishing touches on a program design.

“I don’t get why it’s so surprising.  I’ve been studying computer technology since before I was even in high school.  It’s just what I’ve always done, what I’ve always known.”  My escape, she added silently.

“Maybe.  You just don’t strike me as the typical computer geek,” he admitted.

“What does that mean?” she cried defensively.  She thought she knew what, but part of her wanted to hear him say it.

He stopped at the front exit with his hand on the door handle, but didn’t push it open yet.  Instead, he angled around to face her and replied, “You’re much prettier than any computer geek I’ve ever met.”

That shut her up for a moment.  She stood, frozen in his glare, surprised by the candid response.  Was he just being nice?  She wasn’t sure, but the way he was looking at her wasn’t helping.

She lowered her gaze from his eyes to his lips, and she wanted to reach up and brush her fingers across the barely noticeable scar there.  She was close enough to, and something in the way he looked at her acted as a magnet, an invisible pull that called to her, beckoned her to come closer, to touch him.

“I… guess I could say the same for you.”

Shit!  She just admitted he was much prettier than any computer geek she had ever met.

“That you don’t strike me as the typical computer geek, I mean,” she corrected.

He smiled.  His arm lifted to touch the smooth, bare skin of her neck, and his thumb brushed the line of her jaw.  His hand was so warm, it soothed her, and her instinct was to lean into it.

Was he about to kiss her?

She could feel the quickening of her heart at the very prospect of it.  What would it be like to kiss him?  Maybe the more pertinent question should have been, what would it be like after kissing him?  Did she really want to?

She knew she didn’t not want to, which admittedly scared the hell out of her.  She couldn’t kiss her boss!  Could she?

She could feel her tongue dart out to moisten her lower lip, the flesh of which she scraped her top teeth across in a nervous motion.  She swallowed.  She was frozen in place, unable to move, unsure of what to do next.

And then, the moment was over.  Rayner’s hand was gone from her skin, and his eyes broke their connection from hers.

“I suppose you’ve got me there,” he said.  “Well, goodnight, Miss Fields.  Enjoy your weekend.”

He opened the door and allowed her to walk through it, but stayed behind to lock up.

“Goodnight,” she said as she passed him going out the door.  “See you on Monday.”

BLURB
When the family dog trots in with my diaphragm in its mouth—in front of my date, his parents, and his adorable little girl—you would think I’d hit rock bottom.

WRONG.

Let’s back this up a sec…

Brendan Daniels is the sexiest man alive. The captain of the Badger’s NHL team is also clever, kind, funny, and was my good friend…until we cruised out of the friend zone one weekend with a red-hot fling. Come Monday morning, I wanted to keep riding the Big O train to happy town, but Brendan wanted someone who was “stepmom” material.

A.K.A, not me, apparently.

The problem? I’m crazy in love with him and his daughter. So when he asks me to be his pretend girlfriend for a long weekend with his former in-laws, I say yes. We’re still friends, after all, and friends don’t let friends fake it alone.

***

Laura Collins is the last woman I should be thinking about taking in the back seat of my car, in the woods behind my in-laws’ house, or in a hotel room where we’re sharing one very small, very squeaky bed.

I need a steady, stable influence for my daughter, not a fling with this too wild, too young, too impulsive red head. So what if she’s beautiful and intense and passionate and has the biggest heart I’ve ever known?

I don’t want to fall in love. I really don’t. The whole “pretend girlfriend” thing was supposed to solve my problems, buy me a little more time.

But when it comes to Laura?

Hell, maybe I’m just not cut out for faking it.

I hate my new roommate.

And I want to do dirty, delicious things to her in that swing she installed that we both know has nothing to do with aerial yoga.

Neither of which is good, considering Diana Daniels is my NHL team captain’s little sister, and he will break my face if I’m not a perfect gentleman.

I try to be. Really, I do. But when Diana runs screaming down the hall wearing nothing but a damp washcloth, all my gentlemanly intentions go out the window. She’s got all sorts of Jedi mind tricks to make a man obsessed with getting her into bed, and I’m not gonna lie—I fall for every single one of them.

Especially the one where she warns me not to fall for her.

***

Everyone knows that banging your new roomie is a bad idea. And if it wasn’t for his sister’s stupid pet pig, Wanda, chasing me out of the bathroom mid-shower, Tanner Nowicki and I might still be able to pretend we hate each other.

But that pig totally has it out for me, and before I can warn Tanner that I don’t do relationships—or hockey players or my brother’s friends, for that matter—he’s doing me. Against the wall. And in his bed. And in my bed. And on a pinball machine where we get an all time high score.

And it’s so incredible that I start to forget that I’m the unluckiest woman alive when it comes to relationships. And pigs. And aerial yoga. And worst of all, love.

But hey, it’s not like I didn’t warn him…

Review: The Dark Forest: A Collection Of Erotic Fairytales

The most controversial book of 2017 ~ Carolyn Faulkner

Enjoy seven wicked tales from seven bestselling authors, each more deliciously deviant than the last! This anthology breaks every rule and is extremely taboo. It is so dark that it’s actually black, and definitely not for the faint of heart. This anthology is not your typical romance. You have been warned.

Nothing is as it seems in our dark and twisted fairyland. Princes are not charming and the path to happily ever after is paved with creative punishments and supplication. Do not fret for our fair maidens. These are still fairytales. Love will conquer all in the end.

Included in this anthology are:
BEAUTIFULLY PRIMAL
A Beauty and the Beast tale by Zoe Blake
SLEEP, MY BEAUTY
A Sleeping Beauty story by Alta Hensley
SAVING ELLA
A Cinderella tale by Tabitha Black
MR. WOLFFE’S LITTLE RED
A Little Red Riding Hood story by Maggie Ryan
GOLDI IN CHAINS
A Goldilocks story by Maren Smith
NIGHTMARES IN WONDERLAND
An Alice in Wonderland tale by Addison Cain
THE TOWER
A Rapunzel story by Jennifer Bene

Review: Each of these amazing authors puts their own sexual and kinky twist on classic fairytales, but beware, as you move deeper into The Dark Forest the tales start to take a darker turn.

While some of the tales may be a little intense for readers, if you’re a fan of J.A. Huss or Callie Hart’s style of writing than I think you’ll enjoy this collaboration of authors.

Happy Reading:)
