Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00014]

She's an investment banker. He's an outlaw biker. A little bit of heaven is about to meet a whole lot of hell. Morgan Powell was raised to be perfect, to set an example for her sisters to follow. Her life has been dedicated to making something of her career, so she wouldn’t know what to do with a man even if you gave her an instruction manual. Brett 'Ice' Grady spends his days trying to keep up with his teenage daughter, his nights consumed in Regulators’ MC business. He has no time for anything more than a casual hookup. Two worlds collide when the dangers of his life crash into the calm of hers. Can she go beyond her own boundaries and chip her way through to the man known to be as cold as ice? Loosely attached to Chelsea Camaron's Hellions Series and Jessie Lane's Ex Ops Series.  

~Morgan~ Looking at my phone screen, I smile at the text in front of me. I’m off 2nite. Movie @ ur house or mine? Texting back, I tell my best friend I will be at her house after work with takeout. It is not often she gets a Friday night off. Working in a bank, I have every weekend off. Casey’s career path is far different than mine, though, and it is one that requires weekend time. My day drags on as I review current investment portfolios and market changes. I have the best job ever. I get paid to spend other people’s money as an investment broker here in South Beach. My life is sun, sand, and dollar bills. Before going to Casey’s, I stop by my condo and change clothes. The down side to my job is the stuffy suits I have to wear: reasonable, past knee-length skirts; reasonable women’s dress pants; and reasonable button up shirts. I might hate them, yet in a sad way, the dress code fits my life—reasonable. It’s not long into girl’s night before the difference in our lifestyle’s show. “Damn, we’re not even halfway through the first movie, and you’re ready for bed? What the hell? Grandparents stay up later than you,” my best friend wakes me out of my doze. “Sorry, some of us keep normal business hours,” I joke back. “Yeah, your hours scream forty-two, not twenty-four, as does everything else in your life.” “I’m not that bad,” I protest half-heartedly. However, that voice of doubt says “maybe I am.” Maybe my stiff upbringing has rubbed off on me more than I care to admit. My parents raised me to be an example. As the oldest of three, I had to be the light to guide my younger sisters, Madyson and Mallory. Everything with my parents was about fitting the mold, keeping up appearances. Their brainwashing worked to some degree. Going away to college did nothing for me in my attempt to escape my overbearing parents, either. No, they live in my head, every rule engraved into my brain matter. Too bad no one warned me there is no cure and no escape once they get those rules engrained into your very being. I am a twenty-four-year-old virgin. A college educated, suit wearing, have my shit together prude. Yep, that’s me. I wouldn’t know what to do with a penis if it was given to me gift wrapped in Christmas paper, and topped with a bow. Morgan Ann Powell: pathetic, stiff, and borderline pseudo-old lady—that is me. I am, quite possibly, the only woman in her twenties who can count on one hand how many guys she has kissed. I am not cut out for parties, guys, or any wild times, either. My destiny is to be the old lady who lives alone, feeding all the stray cats in the neighborhood.  

4 - 4.5 Stars!
I have been a HUGE fan of Chelsea Camaron since day one when I first read "Restore My Heart", and have followed her work ever since. "Ice" has been my first read of Jessie Lane, and it has definitely made me want to read more. 

When I first started reading "Ice", I did find myself having a hard time getting into it. The story felt a bit all over the place and had me slightly confused. Before getting very far into it, I put it down for a day or two and came back to it (I was not sure if it was the story itself, or that I was just burnt out from the holiday chaos), and then the story really began to take off. Once I understood who the characters were, and what their role was in this story, I was unable to put the book down a second time. You def need to be in the mind frame to follow everything closely because there is a lot going on, and if you blink you may miss something. 

With that being said, the very beginning was the only part I can even slightly complain about. The rest was crazy…. in a good way. The dynamic between Ice and Morgan was seriously intense. Ice was a super asshole in the beginning. I couldn't possibly see a way that he could turn a leaf and redeem himself, but my god did he ever! Once the book ended, I realized that he had slowly creeped into my heart and easily became one of my favorite male characters to date. With Ice, you get what you see. Having lost his wife at a young age, he formed a wall around himself and vowed to never let another woman into his life in that way. If there are no feelings or attachment then there is no way for him to feel that sort of pain again. As soon as Morgan walked into her life with an innocence surrounding her and a feistiness he was not used to, everything in his world began to change. She was the one person that was able to crack down those walls, and neither of them even saw it coming, or knew when it had happened. 

When Morgan's younger sister turns up missing, Morgan turns to the one person she hated… Ice. Single father to a teenage girl. President of the Regulators MC. Ex military. Owner of strip clubs, and complete asshole. It was not until her sister disappeared that he began to show that he did indeed have a heart as Morgan slowly began to unknowingly melt the ice from it. When all the walls finally crumbled, my god did the next scenes make my panties all wet. These two together were HOT!!!! 

I think one of my favorite things about this book was that the Regulators MC was not your typical MC…. Not even close. Nothing is what it seems when it comes to them, and I most certainly was not expecting to learn about them what I did. It was a fresh take on the MC genre and I absolutely cannot wait to get more from it! The next book cannot come soon enough. 

This book had it all. Hot and steamy scenes, suspense and action. It was aggravating and heart warming at the same time and I don't think I could have asked or anything more from reading ICE.

They were the most unlikely pair to fall in love. . .

A golden boy with a dark past. A bi-racial girl with epic faith. These two weren’t supposed to survive the system, sketchy origins and all. Trevor Kyle has loved Shanice Bailey forever—from the time they both landed in the Baptist Children’s Home until they were young adults raised by adoptive families that had no resemblance to the worlds from which they came. Trevor has always been her protector and champion even when he was busy pushing her away for her own good. Shanice has always taken her faith in Trevor seriously. Her childhood oath is strengthened when she learns the true meaning of family. But After Trevor’s adoptive parents die tragically and his bachelor uncle takes him in, she finds that the boy she’s always looked up to has changed, and not for the better. Yet, she can’t bring herself to forget him as her pure childhood love for him blossoms into something more. The most generous heart and truest faith does not travel an easy path. Just when Trevor thinks he’s found a way to keep his promise to be with Shanice forever, a specter from the past threatens their future plans.

EXCERPT, Obsidian Faith, Chapter Twelve

“You want to be a doctor?” Trevor said.

“No, a nurse. I want to help people get over drug addiction and stuff, but I don’t want to go to school for all the years it takes to be a doctor.”

“That’s cool. Just don’t fall for some doctor and forget about me,” he teased.

“I’d never forget you, Trevor,” she said. “And I’ll never fall for some doctor.”

“How do you know?” he said. “You’ll go off to college and I’ll be as good as forgotten.”

“You’ll forget me first,” she said. “You already have. You’re the one who’s taking Emily Winters to the prom and everything.”

“It’s just another rite of passage.”

“A what?”

“It’s one of those things you’re expected to do at certain ages that transition you from one stage in life to another.”

“Oh, well. I’m not passing any rites with anyone but you,” She said.

“You’re too young to say that, Shanice. You’ve got a lot of growing up to do.”

“So do you.” She protested, just as he expected her to.

“Yeah, but I’m closer to twenty-one than you are, and I’ll be going off to college in a couple of years.”

“I know, but I won’t forget you,” Shanice said with conviction.

“How do you know this?” Trevor asked.

“Because I’m going to be like Amy March in Little Women.”

“Never heard of it,” Trevor said.

“Probably because boys think it’s stupid. But there is a Little Men, and Jo’s Boys and they’re about orphans and stuff. Anyway, they’re classics. Mom read the books when she was about my age, so she gave them to me for Christmas.”

“What does this have to do with you not forgetting me?”

“You’ll have to read Little Women to find out,” she said cryptically.

✯Cover reveal✯ STEELING MY HAART by Lizzy Roberts


Cover Reveal

Book Title: Steeling My Haart 
Author: Lizzy Roberts 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: March 2015 
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Eight years ago a tornado devastated the community of Glen Springs.  That same night my heart was torn to shreds when he left.  Now, all I have to live for is work.  I’m successful and have a good life, just like he wished.  So, why am I so unhappy?

A tragedy is bringing me home and I’m now finding my well ordered and successful life hurled into a whirlwind of uncertainty.  The biggest threat of all comes in the shape of Charlie Haart, the number one reason I have stayed away from Glen Springs for so long.  


Unedited and subject to change

After what felt like hours, Charlie could still hear the siren still blaring above them.  This was one bad storm cell and it sounded like they were far from being out of the woods yet.  Fumbling about the dark shelter, he could just see the outlines of a couple of boxes and a cupboard in the far corner of the small underground room.  As the lightening flashes continued to light the room sporadically he was able to release a shaking Emma and attempt to find some light.
“Sweetheart, I just need to reach over there and see if there is any candles or a torch, ok? I will be right back and won’t leave you, I promise.”
He saw her nod her head in acknowledgement and fumbled across and found a box of candles and some storm matches in one of the boxes.  When he has finally lit a few candles, the room looked a little less scary and was pretty well stocked.  It seemed as though the old lady had kept this place provisioned with a few bits right up until she moved.  Charlie saw Emma cowered in the same spot, in mild shock no doubt and he scooted towards her taking her once again into his arms.
She was quiet, almost too quiet and as he scanned around the room he saw that there was a huge, yet, comfy looking sofa covered in some beautiful handmade quilts and gently lifted her across the room and gently laid her on the sofa, covering her with a couple of the patchwork quilts.  As he went to seek out the other boxes in the shelter, Emma reached out and grabbed his arm.
“Thank you.”
The tiny quivering voice echoed round the room.
“Thank you, Spark.  You literally just saved my life.  Twice.”
Then she burst into a heart-wrenching sobbing fit.  Charlie gently climbed on to the sofa with her and took her gorgeous, tear-stained face tenderly into his hands and wiped away the tears with his thumbs.  Kissing her forehead gently he replied,
“My absolute pleasure sweetheart. Knowing there could be a world without you in it would completely break me do you know that? I would die before I’d let anything happen to you Emma.  I really would.”
