My name is Kennedy Brooks and you're not going to like me. Chances are you may even hate me, and that's okay, there are times I do too. I had choices, we all do, the ones that I made changed everything. Before I knew it, the lines of right and wrong began to blur and I was consumed so deeply that I couldn't see a way out even if I wanted to. The path I chose is not for the faint of heart, it isn't always sweet, but it's real. What happens when all the things you have always wanted suddenly aren't all you want anymore? What do you do when the forbidden screams your name and both parts of your life become as vital as the air you breathe? You make a choice. This is my story.





Unconventional Bliss!!!  Homewrecker will pull you in and make you think outside the relationship box all while making you blush scarlet!  Imagine the perfect filthy talking Alpha Male AND the sweet and savory Boy Next Door at the same time literally.

It's the typical small town circle of friends romance. Gunnar and Kennedy have known each other practically their entire lives and tied the knot ten years ago. Gunnar to Kennedy is comfortable, safe, and lately it's becoming evident, he is boring.  Ignoring the "elephant" in the room they both live life mechanically, same routine everyday, being married, making sweet love (unsatisfying to Kennedy) and hanging with three other people in their circle of friends that have become family. Lyndsey is the outspoken spitfire obsessed with sex and owner of "Batteries Not Included" ( best store name ever), the adult fun store which just so happens to employ Kennedy and Mark, who we think is gay; however  there is specific attraction to one female, Lyndsey.  Dixon Hale, be still my heart, rounds out the circle of friends. The filthy mouthed, super hot, alpha male and Firefighter whom was raised by Gunnar's dad after his parents passed, is just hot.

Working in a store named "Batteries Not Included" spikes the curiosity in Kendall as she quickly realizes she needs more from her sweet loving husband. More than sweet caresses, she needs to be desired, to be pushed to the edge. Trying to approach the topic with Gunnar, whom seems to be distracted with his professional success being named Head Coach for the High School Football Team,  (small town USA, this is a big deal, football coach = celebrity status)  isn't open to trying anything new.  Hoping to slowly insert more spice into their sex life he abruptly shuts Kennedy down.  Being more on the curvy side Kennedy already has body issues and being turned down by her husband doesn't help.  It's a constant struggle in her mind and Kennedy fights the battle of "not being good enough".  Afterglow mother knows best and that is what her mother has preached since day one add Gunnar's reluctance and insecurities are at an all time high.

It's often said you find exactly what you've been missing at the strangest time and in the strangest place. Enter Dixon Hale, best friend practically brother to Gunnar.  After being left at the alter during a wedding he was only using to avoid what he thought was unrequited love, he vows to never get close to a woman, nicknaming himself "The Tin Man" , Dix loves them and leaves them by the dozen all while watching the woman he loves with someone else.  Then one drunken night ignites a flame that even this Firefighter can't contain.

One night, a ride home and the ride of her life opens up a piece of Kennedy that she has been hiding or never knew she had. One hot night with the Firefighter and she finally feels alive, alive and utterly guilty.  Who is this woman that cheats? Who is this woman that needs to be loved hard and pushed to her limits it seems only Dixon can reach? One time, one time is a mistake more than once is a choice.The choice is made as neither Kennedy nor Dixon can be satisfied with one time, they enter into a physical relationship that takes hot to another level.

Kennedy realizes she loves two men, Gunnar growing suspicious of his wife's behavior and Dixon pushing Kennedy away because he refuses to hurt his brother anymore leads to several tense moments culminating when Dixon confesses his love to Kennedy. Confessing that he has loved her for so long he just did so from afar thinking he'd never have a chance with her and after this confession he pushes her out of his life leaving Kennedy devastated and hoping to preserve what relationship he has left with the guy he grew up with.

In a small town nothing stays secret very long and when this spicy gem gets out, things get more than interesting.  Now that Gunnar knows the cause for his wife's sullen mood, he confronts both to reaffirm his suspicions.  A couple bloody noses, a split up marriage, a destroyed friendship and a crying mess later sex obsessed best friend to Kennedy, Lyndsey, conspires to get Gunnar and Dixon in the same room so she can discuss some "unconventional" solutions for their romantic triangle.  They must think outside the norm.

Loving each other unconditionally, Gunnar, Kennedy and Dixon enter into a relationship as a threesome.  While not the typical solution by societal standards it's the best solution for a woman who needs both men to feel whole.   Cue some of the hottest bedroom scenes these eyes have read.  This trio being together brings out the best in each other, Gunnar becomes more alpha and demanding in the bedroom, Dixon becomes more emotionally charged and soft and sensual. Kennedy has hit the love making jackpot with the combination of these two.  Of course pursuing what is more than likely the first relationship of this type in this small community will be no easy feat.  All three be strong and be able to accept scrutiny from those who like to judge, it must be decided if this love is worth the judgement that may come their way.

If you like toe curling bedroom scenes, along with a back porch scene that makes me blush just thinking about it still, Homewrecker has to be on your TBR.  Although unconventional it's nice to read about a HEA taking place in the most unlikely situation.

Finding Hope for Tomorrow by Kathryn McNeill Crane

Title: Finding Hope for Tomorrow (Tomorrows #2)
Author: Kathryn McNeill Crane
Release Date: April 26, 2016
Find on Goodreads

Every person’s life tells a story.

Some are uncomplicated, straightforward, and easy. Things fall into place with a simplicity that boggles the mind.

Others twist and turn, and every day is centered on fighting and scraping, yet never finding victory.

And then there are those who gain an inch only to be knocked back a foot. They love. They fight. They stumble. They fall. But through it all, they stagger to their feet, step back on life’s path, and push through until they win. For these people, happiness is not an illusion. It’s a truth, a promise, worth any effort, any scars, but just out of arm’s reach. It stands at the end of the path, taunting and teasing, tempting them to take one more blow.

And in the end, the battles make victory sweeter. More valued. More precious than ever imagined. More than any one person could hope.

This is Liam’s story.
Loyal, protective, shoulders stronger than Atlas'.
Broken, worn, battered.
Win or lose, he’s ready to fight for what tomorrow brings.

Life. Love. Healing. Hope.


Searching for Tomorrow (#1) – Released Oct 13, 2013

Some people are blessed to find that one certain person who completes them.

Wrynn’s yesterdays were what others only dream of having. She and Tripp were the best of friends before they even thought about love. They had the fairy tale life where ‘like’ turns into ‘love’, and ‘love’ becomes ‘happily ever after’...

What happens when life conspires against you, and snatches your soul mate from your arms?

… Only her forever love ended much too soon. 

Broken beyond her own ability to repair, Wrynn boxes up her grief and attempts to raise her three girls the best she can on her own. As time slowly passes, Wrynn relives her life with Tripp while struggling most days to get out of bed. She is reminded of him at every turn.

How do you set your grief and anguish aside? How do you pick up the shattered pieces, put those pieces back together again, and try to move on?

Wrynn tries to find the joy in life every single day through her daughters, family, and friends. Her twin brother Liam has dedicated himself to helping Wrynn put her life back together after losing his own love. On the other hand, her mother-in-law lives to torment her at every turn. Wrynn can't even find a chance to breathe, much less a desire to somehow search for her tomorrow.

Kathryn is a simple country girl who likes to spend time with her family. Born and raised in Eastern North Carolina, she loves to travel, but can't imagine ever leaving the mountains she's come to call home. She holds Jeremiah 29:11 very close to her heart and believes it with every fiber of her being. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Fall Back Skyward by Autumn Grey

Eleven years ago, I saved her. I loved her. I still do. But they took me away from her and locked me up. For two years, all I could think about was her. She consumed me. Took up every room in my head and gave me something to focus on, knowing I would see her soon.


Nine years ago, I watched her as she walked down the aisle and into the arms of a man that wasn't me. My brother. I promised him that I'd leave town. 

I did and never looked back. 

Now, I'm staring at seven letters, each envelope stamped with one word in bold, red ink: URGENT. 

I have no choice but to go back home. Seeing her will be the hardest thing I'll ever have to do. But in order to reconcile with my past, I have to face my present. Even if the thought of seeing her, knowing that she is out of my reach, kills me.


I have no idea what awaits me, but I can only hope that the demons of my past will finally be buried and put to rest.

Excerpt

The air around me shifts, like atoms rearranging themselves to accommodate a potent, powerful entity. My eyes snap open. I swing my head around to my right and there, lying next to me calmly as though it’s something completely normal, is Cole Holloway.

I bolt upright and turn to face him. "How did you get up here?" He doesn't respond. Then I remember that he can't hear me. I touch his arm, making sure he can see my lips. Thank goodness the moon is full tonight. He tilts his head to the side to look at me. "How did you get up here?"

He points to the side of the building. I follow his finger and see the white ladder poking at the roof. Ah, I'd completely forgotten about it.

He turns his head and faces the sky. Holding my breath, I study his profile; his sharp nose and angular jaw. A faint scent of musk cologne drifts toward me, making the hair on the nape of my neck stand on end.

Dragging my gaze from his face, I look up at the infinite dark sky and I smile. Every part of me is centered on him. His movements. Every rise and fall of his chest doubles my heart beat until the only sound that fills my senses is my pulse pounding in my ears.


Thump. 

Thump. 

Thump.


Seconds, minutes, probably hours go by. Centuries could pass. Seasons could come and go, but I wouldn’t notice, because this is the most spellbinding moment I’ve ever experienced in my seventeen years on this earth.

Something fleetingly touches the back of my hand, startling me.

There it is again. A soft touch along the side of my pinkie. My skin is on fire now. My heart is in my throat and my lungs are nowhere near working right. The touch is firm now. Deliberate. He hooks his pinkie around mine and tugs gently. Then he exhales hard, and I swear the roof moves beneath our bodies. Suddenly, the finger uncoils from mine, leaving me cold. I blink several times before twisting, turning my head to the side to look at him.

Did I imagine that touch?

I glance down and see that his hand is curled into a fist at his side. He sits up, then turns slightly to the side to face me. His face is framed in shadows so I can’t see it clearly. A shiver skitters down my back as he leans forward without warning until I feel his quick breath fan my lips, his eyes on my mouth the entire time. He takes a tendril of the hair fanned around my head and rubs it between his fingers, his eyes not leaving mine. I’m captivated by his eyes, his overwhelming presence. I should scold him for being too forward and getting into my space, but I can't. I'm mesmerized by the inhales and exhales passing through his parted lips.

He lets go of my hair and climbs to his feet with the agility and swiftness of a panther. Between one breath and the next, he’s gone, disappearing into the night as quietly as he came. Taking with him a tiny piece of my heart. As odd as it sounds, I feel a certain connection to this quiet boy.

I attempt to prop my upper body on my elbows so I can watch him as he walks back to his house, but they feel too jelly-like. I settle back on the roof, grinning and listening to the muffled crunch of his shoes on the grass until it fades.

STAY WITH ME by Kelly Elliott

Life moves on.

Only people who have never lost anyone they loved with all their heart can blindly believe those words.

What if I didn’t want to move on? What if I wanted to wake up every morning with that familiar ache in my chest, knowing I’d never see her again?

But, life can change in a moment.

I knew that better than anyone … So, when I couldn’t get those mesmerizing green eyes out of my head, I decided to do something about it.

Would one night with her be enough, or would my heart decide it was finally time to move on from the past?

          Pulling Kilyn onto my lap, I lifted her chin and looked into her eyes. “This is not bad. This is you and I finding our way back to each other. I don’t think it was a coincidence you and I running into each other all those times. We were meant to be together. Even if I couldn’t see it at first, I’ve always known it in my heart. All we have to do is show up, eat some food, help my father with some bookshelf and then I’m taking you home and making love to you all night.” She lifted her eyebrows. “All night, huh?” I gently kissed around her face. “All night.” “Is that a Greek thing . . . the stamina?” I could feel my body heating as Kilyn squirmed about in my lap. “Hell, yes, that’s a Greek thing.” Sinking her teeth into her lip, she smiled big. “I think I’m going to like having a Greek boyfriend.” “Oh, baby, trust me. There are so many things about having a Greek boyfriend you’re going to love.” Pushing her ass against my hard dick, she winked. “Starting with this?” A low growl came from the back of my throat as I whispered against her lips. “Me trelaĆ­neis, Kilyn.”

Author: Donya Lynne
Genre: Adult, Paranormal Romance
Published: May 2, 2016
For almost two hundred years, Trace has searched for his mate. Now he’s met Cordray. Brash, sassy, and covered in tattoos, Cordray isn’t at all the type of female he thought his mate would be, but he can’t deny the way his body reacts every time she’s near. She calms him and sparks his desire in a way no one ever has, which terrifies him, because if she has that kind of power over him, what else is she capable of?

Cordray thinks Trace is the most exciting male she’s ever met, but she refuses to drop her guard and let him in. She loved deeply once, only to be spurned when her lover mated another. The heartbreak was so severe, she lost her ability to feel. Trace has reawakened her sense of touch, but she’s scared that if she takes another chance on love only to be rejected again, this time she’ll lose her life.

With both committed to pushing the other away, every conversation escalates into a war of words. But for these two, their arguments are just foreplay. It’s only a matter of time before their desire grows stronger than their resistance. No other has tamed Trace’s inner beast the way Cordray can. And now that he’s found her, God help anyone—or anything—that tries to take her from him.
