Clutch by Tess Oliver



Released: 5th November 2013

Synopsis:

When Taylor Flinn’s parents shipped her off to an aunt for her last year of high school, James “Clutch” Mason had convinced himself it was for the best. Taylor, the wild, impulsive and far-too-appealing seventeen-year-old had been driving him nuts. Her school girl crush on him had been the last thing he needed. Now he had time to concentrate on his booming classic car part business, his new found love-- drag racing, and keeping his twenty-year-old brother Barrett out of trouble. But when Taylor returns from her aunt’s more grown up, utterly seductive, and attached to another guy, Clutch realizes that the only thing he ever needed or wanted was Taylor Flinn.  


Teaser:

She came around the corner, unexpectedly and like a hurricane of stars. My mind went completely blank. I hung up and stuck the phone in my pocket.
Taylor’s long lashes curtained her smooth cheeks as she dropped her gaze.
The adrenaline rush left behind from getting my hands on a sixty-five Shelby morphed into an explosion of every emotion I’d ever felt. I lunged forward and grabbed her hand. She gasped as I dragged her around the back of the building. I pressed her up against the bricks and stared down at her.

Review by Jodie
5 amazing stars

This is the second book in the custom culture series but can be read as a standalone.
I loved loved this book. I already wanted more of Clutch and Taylor from their supporting roles in Freefall.
This book brings you the story of Clutch and Taylor and also gives you more of Nix, Scotlyn, Dray, Cassie and we meet Barrett, Jason and Gus.
Clutch is a 6ft plus beast of a man…. He is strong, hot, and sexy with a huge heart…. He runs a classic car parts business with Jason, who is Taylor’s big brother.
Taylor is eighteen old high school wild child who has had a crush on Clutch since she was sixteen….her parents sent her away to live with her aunt because they believe she is out of control….
Taylor returns on her eighteenth birthday and is allowed to stay as long as she agrees to her parents rules…. Main one being she stays away from Clutch.
Clutch has denied his feelings for Taylor for years because she is underage and forbidden.  He stays away from her but just because she is out of sight and reach doesn't mean she is out of thought.
Clutch isn't aware Taylor is back until he runs into her at work….their chemistry is sizzling hot, once their eyes lock on one another its little no one else exists.
Now that Taylor is eighteen, Clutch is finding it harder and harder to stay away….. A hot passionate kiss pops the cork on both their bottled up feelings for one another…..now there is no going back.
Taylor’s family think her obsession with Clutch is just a school girl crush which she will grow out of but Taylor knows different…. For Taylor, Clutch is the one….he makes her feel like she is home.
Taylor goes against her over barring family and pursues Clutch….
There is many obstacles on the road for happiness for Clutch and Taylor but true love like theirs is always worth fighting for….
This story had me gripped from the first page and I wasn't able to put it down….. I cannot wait for more from this series.
Custom Culture series is a must read for all romance junkies.

Lauren has once again been beaten and humiliated by her soon to be ex-Husband, Gabe has revealed he was sexually abused by his Step-Mother as a teenager, and Gabe’s ex is threatening to stop him seeing his daughter.

I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne Australia. It's a whole new way of life for us down here,we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.

I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.

As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football...The round ball version; I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work; I am also rather partial to a glass... or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.

Wake Up Call by Victoria Ashley

Wake Up Call by Victoria Ashley





My heart stopped and suddenly it was hard to breathe. His voice always had that effect on me. It was like poison slowly running through my veins killing me bit by bit. Like a drug that I couldn't get enough of even though I was almost down to my last breath. 
Jace took a step forward and grabbed my hand. He slowly trailed his fingers over my face and backed me into the wall. My heart stopped again if that was even possible. "You can't leave," he whispered. "I need you." His warm breath kissed my lips as he bit his bottom lip and placed both of his hands around my face. They were warm and soft to the touch. Too big for my fragile face, although I wanted to bury myself in them. "Breathe. There is no one here but the two of us. Breathe," he whispered. 

Avery Hale had spent her whole childhood abused by her drunken, hopped-up parents. Broken from a lifetime of hate and pain she grew up realizing that trust and love just didn't exist. Not in her world at least. 
After turning the age of eighteen, she packed up and moved far away determined to escape her hurtful past and start a new life. Once on her own she comes to the conclusion that the emptiness still exist. Doing what she had to to survive she found herself mixed up in exotic dancing and meaningless sexual relationships unable to feel anything, for anyone. She was sure that her life was worthless and there was nothing left for her. Or, she thought. 
After meeting a beautiful stranger, jace, her life suddenly is turned upside down. Everything that she truly believed suddenly gets questioned and then she is left to figure out if there is really more to her than she could ever have imagined. Jace, having some secrets of his own puts the pain of his own past behind to do what he can to help Avery. Can the love of another broken person be enough to help Avery, or is she already too far gone? 
Avery's life is pulled in many directions as she tries to find herself, and not everyone and thing is what they seem to be in this story of love, trust and opening up. Finding herself and learning to love herself might just be the hardest thing she's ever had to do.

PRIZE from Momma's Secret Book Obsession is a Kindle copy of My Today by Author HJ Bellus...all you have to do is stop by her page and say Merry Christmas Cree and Tripp...Momma  you!



Why are the holidays important to you? Christmas has always been a very special holiday close to my heart. I can remember staying in the kitchen for hours with my mamaw, making her homemade peanut butter fudge and potato candy. The only picture I have with her, is of her last Christmas...I was 14. She always tried no matter how hard it was on her financially to give us even the smallest present, just to show us she loved us, but she also taught us that presents wasn't what Christmas, Christmas...Christmas is about family, love, and God's gift to us. Now that I am a Momma, I enjoy spending every weekend baking with my kids, watching Christmas movies, over hot chocolate, popcorn and cookies. I love their expression when they see the Christmas tree light up for the first time, and my husband tells me that their expression mirrors mine...yes, even at 31 years old, I get emotional over the lights, the glamour and beauty of Christmas. Even a twinkling light captures me. I hope you all enjoy a wonderful Christmas season. And I am hoping thatMomma's Secret Book Obsession can bring more and more giveaways to you all to show our appreciation of your continual love and support! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas, with  love  Momma Ty

My Today by H.J. Bellus






















My Today
My Way Series, Book Two
By: HJ Bellus

Synopsis:

Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin. Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.

That philosophy served its purpose, until I met someone who turned my life upside down. Milly, the little hoochie, stormed into my life and changed everything with her undying faith in me, her love and her shitty coffee concoctions. I found a family in Milly, and her sexy farm boy, Cree. She accepted me without hesitation, and never ran from the dark and dangerous secrets that I harbored. My new family loved me unconditionally, with their showers of sprinkles and impromptu dance parties. 

My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp and his crazy-ass ideas of princesses. Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp, fresh out of rehab, moved in with Milly and Cree to try and make a new life for himself. Tripp, the sexy as hell, charismatic beast, soon became one of my best friends. We shared our love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck. The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths, or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

Momma’s Secret Book Obsession’s REVIEWS of My Today!!!!
My Today was so fabulous, Amanda, Natalie and I had a little cat fight over who got to review the book for this tour, because we each wanted a taste of Tripp. After some hair pulling and biting, HJ caught us squabbling and ended the conflict by telling us ALL to review it, because she is just awesome like that! Besides, there is enough Tripp to go around for all!! (we just can’t let Lacey know, cause that bitch will kick our asses!!) Sooo, in a race to finish My Today first, we each ran to our reading coves, and dived inside of this friggin’ amazing story, of Lacey and Tripp….

Ty’s Review-5 STARS
Broken.
.
.
.
Two lone, broken hearts manage the pain and anguish, together, so they can heal together.
Lacey is the baddest bitch, ever. Well, on the outside that is. She has walls built up around her heart, and refuses to love, because she has experienced too much pain in her short life. She hides the pain, deep beneath the surface. She covers the scars with tattoos, marked all over her body. She simply learns to exist.
Tripp. Ahhhh sweet, sexy Tripp. He never gets the girl. His life has been centered around travesty and heartache. Such a tragic life for a professional baseball player. He loses everything to addiction, and has nobody to turn to, but Cree.
When Lacey and Tripp first meet in My Now and Forever (My Way Book 1), they have brazen, yet playful friendship. Lacey thinks Tripp is a douche canoe. Tripp thinks Lacey is a bitch. But there is a magnetic pull between Lacey and Tripp. Although they keep it friendly in the beginning,Lacey always finds her way to Tripp's lap (lucky bitch), then eventually to his bed, then right, smack, dab into his heart.
Lacey and Tripp begin a wild,mind blowing,sexy relationship. But jealousy gets the best of them, and tragedy strikes. Apart, Lacey and Tripp realize that their hearts will stop beating, without the other half...each other. After a stint of counseling, they find their way back to each other, and begin their healing process. So much heartache is revealed for Lacey and Tripp. The anguish these two experience is devastating, and gut wrenching.
Despite all of the heartache they lived with apart, happiness found them together, as a family. Cree, Milly, Annie and Mac, were right there, all along, in love and support. Lacey and Tripp get their happy ending, but not without more excitement, tears, and sadness.
.

HEALED.....
*********************************************************************************
HJ Bellus. This woman is one frickin' talented author, who holds nothing back in her writing. She is bold, and brazen. She dares to stand out, makes a statement, and simply doesn't care. When I read My Now and Forever (My Way Book #1), I fell head over heels for her witty remarks, playful banter, and just fun loving characters. My Today super exceeded all expectations, going above and beyond my hopes for this book. I laughed, I cried, I was so pissed I wanted to bitch slap a certain someone (spoiler free). I felt Lacey and Tripp's heartache, their fear, their happiness. HJ pours so much emotion into her characters, they come to life within an instant. I was so pleased with this book, I am literally in awe. Milly, Cree, Tripp, Lacey, Annie and Mac are some of my favorite characters, I feel so deeply connected to them. I have felt their pain while reading their stories. This book was wonderfully written, and I cannot wait to see what HJ has in store for book 3 in the installment. My Today left me wanting more of this crazy misfit family. #celebratemisfits

Amanda’s Review-5 STARS

*Two Broken Souls*

Raw! Emotional! Powerful!
**A life that was shattered at such a young age, she never thought she'd be whole again!
**Living a life of of hell.....being hated & despised by the people that should love him the most.....then to find out his entire life was a lie! But is that always a bad thing??

Lacey & Tripp are two people who are different.....who strive to be different! They've lived a life most think unimaginable!

Lacey feels she did the worst thing a girl could do & b/c of that, she'll never have the happily-ever-after her best friend/sister, Milly, has found! Finally being a part of a family is something she never thought she'd have! But now that she does, she is content with that! She never imagined the 'Beast' of a cousin of her new found 'brother' would make her feel things & want things she never thought possible!
After losing his brother, Tripp turns to a life of sex, drugs & alcohol to numb the pain! His dad hates him even more now than he ever did & his mom stands by her husband. The only person he has left in his life that he truly cares about is his cousin, Cree. Moving across country to start a new life & leaving behind his addictions, is the best thing for him! Little did he know, there was more waiting for him than his cousin......a bada$$ rocker chick, who by the way, would junk-punch you for calling her a princess, would be his new addiction!
My Today will captivate you from the beginning! You're pulled in to the lives of Lacey & Tripp and want nothing more for them than to see them find the happiness & love they've deserved their entire lives! You will learn the 'blood family' isn't always the best kind of family! This crazy, foul mouthed group of people have formed a bond, a family, that nothing or no one can come between!
HJ Bellus is an amazing, talented author! She leaves her feelings & emotions right there in the words & lives of her characters!! With the greatness of Milly's & Lacey's stories......I can't wait to see what is waiting for us in Willow's story!
                                                                                                                                                                                     


Natalie’s Review-5 STARS
HJ has done it again! Lacey and Tripp are quite the pair. When life gives you a sucky hand they figure out a way to pick up the pieces and make the puzzle picture perfect.And of you course you get Milley and Cree and Annie and little Mac back too. This will have you on an emotional roller coaster ride that you will love. The characters are so well written and HJ puts so much emotion in each and every one of them that you become attached to them. Whatever you do, do not read this book until you have read My Now and Forever.


Excerpt: 

“How weird of a couple we are.  I’m short and plump, you are a tall, sexy Beast.  We are both way beyond repair.”

“I think it’s pretty damn sexy, if you ask me.”

“Really?  Of course you would…you are a typical horn dog.”

“Lacey, I really like you.  There is something about you that makes me want to have you all to myself.”

“You better only see me or I’d have to cut a bitch.”

Synopsis:

Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!

Hey Hoochies! I'm Milly, and I am tired of taking kicks to the gut. A broken family, an asshole husband and the loss of loved ones have left me crying Uncle, and declaring a serious case of the Fuck-Its! 

I had my heart broken, stomped on and shattered before I ever started on my journey to find my little piece of happiness. With a bucket list, a '66 Ford and wild dreams, I set out on an adventure that changed my life forever. Follow me on my journey that resurrected my inner badass.

I found my soul sista from another mista, and opened my dream shop along the way. Just when I gave up on finding true love, a pirate and a princess swept me off my ever lovin' feet and filled my world with sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again. They forced my fragile heart to trust and love without fear. 

Truth is, nobody’s past stays hidden forever. It’s an invisible monster waiting to attack and destroy. It has the capability to ruin everything you’ve worked to set right. All it takes is one final blow to the gut to end everything.
