My Review of FORSAKEN by Lisa Renee Jones

image

DESCRIPTION: ***3rd in a series but you do not have to read books 1-2 to read book 3****
In this third book in the sexy, suspenseful “The Secret Life of Amy Bensen” series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, we meet Amy’s brother Chad–and the woman who either loves him or wants him dead.

Six years ago, Chad’s hunt for a dangerous treasure turned deadly when his family home was set on fire, his parents killed. Faking his and his sister Amy’s death to protect her from further retaliation, he set her up in a new life with a friend’s help, letting her believe he’d died.

But now the men who hired Chad to find the treasure have found him, imprisoning and torturing him to learn where it’s hidden. A dark-haired beauty named Gia helps him escape, promising him access to his worst enemy. And as he tries to unravel the deep secrets of the past, he starts falling for her…only to discover she’s not what she seems.

Unable to trust anyone, Chad focuses on only two things: protecting his sister Amy and getting revenge. Is love even possible in the midst of heartache?

Unable to trust anyone, Chad focuses on only two things

imageMy Review: I was given an early ARC for my honest review. Plus, I do not give any spoilers out but I still give you my opinion.
I have been waiting for this book for awhile to come out. This book was so worth the wait!! It finally tied in all the questions you had and answered them all.
I was so engulfed in this book it literally felt like I was watching a movie while reading. It was totally amazing.
I love Lisa’s writing and it seems like she keeps getting better and richer with her words and expressions. I was totally in awe. Like I said I was watching Forsaken the Movie in my head!!!
Once again Lisa you NAILED it.
BRAVO!!

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loved to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten—even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets her guard down, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing billionaire recluse, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give?

ORPHAN HERO by John Babb

On Saturday my husband and I met this man who wrote a book about his great grandfather. Listening to his story was so inspiring and had me thinking about this book all weekend. I really wanted to share his story and the links to buy his book. It is a beautiful told writing inspired by his family!! I hope you all read this and buy!!!

Meet John Babb:

image In 1849, my great-grandfather ran away from his home and an abusive step-mother at the age of 8 in an attempt to find his father, who was headed to the California gold-fields. Young B.F. Windes trekked from Indiana, across the great American desert, to the aptly named Hangtown. After spending ten years in California, he found himself in the Gulf of Mexico with his own ship, running the Union blockade of southern ports during the Civil War.
His travels led him to meet quite a few reprobates, scoundrels, and thieves – among them Jim Bridger, Three-Fingered Jack, Joaquin Murietta, Lola Montez, Bloody Bill Anderson, and Tuck Smith. After the war, he purchased land and a mercantile store in the Missouri Ozarks in an attempt to settle down with a beautiful young woman, and lead a peaceful life. But the bushwackers had other plans.
Although labeled historical fiction, much of “Orphan Hero – A Novel of the Civil War” is related as it was told to me by my grandmother, my aunt, and my father. Additionally, B.F. Windes kept a journal of his adventures, which I was able to read many years ago. So the thread of the story is true – at least according to my family’s oral history – but all of the gaps are filled with what I imagine might have occurred.
Great pains have been taken to assure the historical accuracy of this book, including my visiting almost every location mentioned in the story, as well as related museums, libraries, and battlefields. I have also incorporated my background as an Assistant Surgeon General in the U.S. Public Health Service with a number of anecdotes related to folk medicine, old wives, tales, and the profession of medicine as practiced in the middle of the 19th century.
When my last duty station placed me in Kansas City, Missouri, I pointed out to my wife that our new home was less than a quarter mile from the old Oregon/California/Santa Fe Trail, which B.F. Windes had traveled on his way west. She gave me one of those blue-eyed stares and said, “So now is your chance to write his story.” And I always do what my wife says.

About the Book
From a former US Assistant Surgeon General comes the epic tale of a young man’s struggle to survive a journey across America during the Civil War. Told by his stepmother that he alone had been responsible for the death of his mother, abandoned by the earlier departure of his father for the California 1849 goldfields, and threatened with being locked in a cage with his stepmother’s psychotic brother, eight-year-old Benjamin Franklin B.F. Windes decides to abandon home and trail his father’s path. Thus begins a trip of constant struggle with disease, severe weather, hardship, Indian attack, and death on his lone journey across much of what is now the United States. B.F. spends the next eleven years in gold rush towns in California–first as a barber, then as a physician’s assistant–before departing for the Caribbean at age nineteen, where he becomes a blockade-runner during the American Civil War. At war’s end, he discovers that the men he had been dealing with were nothing more than common murderers and thieves–Bushwhackers. He travels to the Missouri Ozarks where he meets the girl of his dreams. But their romance is threatened when he finds himself battling a man from his past in order to safeguard his family and his future. Orphan Hero, based on the life of the author’s great-grandfather in the mid-nineteenth century, is a tale of courage and perseverance in the face of incredible hardship.

HOLLYWOOD DIRT COVER REVEALED by Alessandra Torre

image

Synopsis:

Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Move over Colin Farrell, there’s a new bad boy ruling Los Angeles.
Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year. Other than that… I don’t have too much going on.

We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But when Cole Masten’s jet landed in our country airport, we all sat up in our rocking chairs and watched. And when an opportunity crossed my path, I jumped at the chance.

But I didn’t expect what ended up happening. I didn’t expect Cole Masten to be an ass, or to pursue me, or for everything to get tangled up around set riggings, camera cords, bra straps and heartstrings.

Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract.
