BETWEEN WORLDS By Cynthia Austin + My Review


Synopsis: Just when her romantic life was finally starting to settle in, Sidney Sinclair is buried in an emotional meltdown…

Sidney tried to dismiss the mysterious Adrian McAllister once and for all, but instead found herself falling in love with him, despite her relationship with Ray Ryker.

Now, to complicate things even further, her rock star boyfriend has suddenly gone missing.

On the search to find her boyfriend Sidney begins to rely on Adrian even more. Causing her heart to bounce back and forth between the two men leaving her confused and emotionally exhausted.

But there is one question that trumps them all “Which world is real?”

Is it the world of reality where she has comfortably known and understood Ray for years? Or is it the world of the subconscious where she struggles to understand the eerie presence of Adrian’s passion for her?

When the murderer of her beloved friend is finally revealed, Ray is found to be the next on the fatal list causing Sidney to choose between the two men.

In a life or death struggle with the two men who mean the most to her, she’s left having to choose between Ray’s life, or the addictive Adrian who will do anything to possess her forever.

My Review: This was given as an ARC for an honest review! Plus, I do not give out any spoilers and this time it’s going to be hard since I LOVED this book.
I have read this series from the beginning. I was hooked from the first book and I am still thinking how remarkable this journey has been. I loved going along with Sidney. I couldn’t stop reading tonight which has been hard since I had been ill, but OMG I didn’t know what was real? What was happening? What was going to happen? Will I like it this ending? All of the questions I had were all answered in such a beautiful way. It was PERFECT Cynthia Austin.
I enjoyed your series but I really Loved this book.
I am so glad that I was introduced to your writing. I am smiling ear to ear. It was Amazing!!!!



LIE TO YOU (Fobidden Trilogy) by JC. Valentine



The was the one. I thought we were headed someplace great. I didn’t know anything. My mystery man is no longer such a mystery. He’s still commanding and headstrong, playing my body and mind like an instrument, but I’m finding there are layers to him I never could have dreamed. What I’ve learned since that fateful night in his apartment has me reeling. Now, though, the truth has taken a backstage to other, more pressing matters. While I struggle to make a choice that will determine the direction of my future, lies that I thought had been carefully hidden away are coming to light. My head is such a mess I don’t know what’s up or down anymore. Will I be able to sort it all out, or will the life I’ve worked so hard to build come crashing down in a pile of secrets and lies?

My review:
I was given this as an ARC for my honest review.
I read the first book a few months back and couldn’t wait for part two but now I am sweating to read part 3. What’s going to happen? I love Rebel and I am starting to think that Ransom is a very jealous and vindictive man and then there is Florence which I am beginning to think maybe her and Ransom would be better for each other.
This book was great. Like I said I am hoping that the next book comes out very very soon.
Thank you JC for another great book that left me wanting more!!!

Description by Lisa Renee Jones:

How it all started…

One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I’d question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She’d bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expired. Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman’s life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman’s life, and yes, read her journals—-dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I’d never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay. Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn’t know. I was becoming her. The dark, passion it becomes…

Now, I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of being, and I’ve been delivered to the doorstep of several men, allof which I envision as one I’ve read about in the journal. But there is one man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed possible. That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him. All I know for certain is that he knows me like I don’t even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep asking myself — do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn’t it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for more.image

You’ll also never forget how it felt when it was torn apart. Seventeen-year old Grace Hathaway does not give much thought to falling in love, until the day that Ian Taylor, rebel and misfit walks into her math class. From their first conversation, Grace is mesmerized by Ian’s charisma and rock star façade. Ian Taylor, a seventeen-year old kid from the wrong side of the tracks tries to ignore the feelings he has for Grace, but is captured by her caring, non-judgmental personality from the moment they meet. Grace becomes Ian’s everything and there is nothing he will not do for her. Hurting her was never part of his plan.

imageDescription: How much heartbreak can you endure before you fall apart? Five years ago, Grace Hathaway’s high school sweetheart disappeared, lost to a savage addiction. Abandoning love forever, Grace focuses on her successful career as a model and artist in Paris.

As her world disintegrates around her, Grace’s life spirals out of control, leading her into dark corners which change the course of her life forever. Diving into her art, new hope finds her from an unexpected place. Can she ever learn to trust again? Or will she continue her fall from grace?

Don’t Fear the Fear – Embrace it.
Posted on June 25, 2015 by Lisa Renee Jonesimage
by Lisa Renee Jones

Forsaken- Hi every­one and thank you so much to Writ­er­space for hav­ing me on their blog today! As I get ready to release the third book in my Secret Life of Amy Bensen series, For­saken, it has me revis­it­ing how this series began. I remem­ber very clearly, that I was hes­i­tant about this series. My read­ers adored Sara in my Inside Out series (now in devel­op­ment for TV), and Amy (the lead in The Secret Life of Amy Bensen), was her antithe­sis. Don’t get me wrong, every time I pub­lish a book the fear sinks into my gut. I’ve learned that the fear is a good thing though. Now, I fear the day that sink­ing feel­ing goes away, because that will be the day I’m not push­ing myself to be the very best author I can be.

Back to Amy though – when I first released Escap­ing Real­ity (book 1), it was self-published and very dif­fer­ent from all of my other cur­rent works. Sure, it still has your res­i­dent alpha male that I love to write. Which in this case, came decked out in a suit, goa­tee, tat­too, and goes by the name Liam Stone, but, Amy was worlds away from my other hero­ines. She was younger, more naïve, yet I tried, and hope­fully suc­ceeded, to build in this innate strength to her char­ac­ter. I truly pushed myself out of my com­fort zone with these char­ac­ters, and I even ended up tak­ing the series to an all-out dif­fer­ent place than I orig­i­nally intended. All of which, you’ll see in the con­clud­ing vol­umes, For­saken (8/18) and Unbro­ken (9/7).

Escaping RealityThank­fully, I have the best read­ers in the world. Much as I embraced a new chal­lenge in writ­ing this series, they all embraced it as well, and I received so many heart­felt notes about their love for the first two books in the series. So, time passed and I ended up sell­ing the series to Gallery Books, which accounted for a long spell between the release of the first two and last two books. Given the time lapse the fear has returned ten-fold. It’s a whole new set of fears this time though. Will the read­ers of the series have moved on? Do they know two more books are com­ing? It’s such a com­pet­i­tive mar­ket right now, how do I reach my read­ers? And the list goes on and on. You know what though? With the fear comes a thrill. A thrill that is quite inde­scrib­able, and one that can thrive off of one reader’s kind words about one of my books. I would not be able to do what I do with­out all of my read­ers. So as much as I drive my hus­band nutty with my What Ifs around release day, he’s learned to deal with it because it’s part of my process.

Infinite PossibilitiesTo every author out there, the fear is nat­ural and should not be a deter­rent. To every reader who’s picked up one of my books, thank you. Fear, of all mag­ni­tudes, is some­thing we all deal with. It’s how you react and take con­trol in the midst of it that really counts. I get ques­tions all the time about how to write a book and the process of it. My first piece of advice is always: just write. Cliché as it sounds, if you over­think it, that’s when the fear can take over. Trust me, the first books that I wrote are locked away and will never see the light of day, or an edit­ing pen. Writ­ing is a per­sonal process, in most cases. The author is the only one in tune with the char­ac­ters. You’re the sole con­duit to the world you’ve cre­ated. So, you have all the control.

I hope you’ll check out my Secret Life of Amy Bensen series. Books 1 and 2 are already avail­able (Escap­ing Real­ity and Infi­nite Pos­si­bil­i­ties), and books 3 and 4 (For­saken and Unbro­ken) will be com­ing out later this year!
