EXCERPT The Suspenseful Collection:

(When he ran his hands up my thigh, I…)

“Sarah.”

My name escapes him, and it sounds the exact same as it once had. After a long heartfelt hug, he holds me back at arm’s length to take a look at me.

“Wow, my love. You look as stunning as ever.”

The sound of his pet name for me pulls at a tear to the corner of my eye, and my lungs threaten to stop pulling air.

“Thank you.” I smile, completely beside myself. “As do you, babe.”

After a full sweep over of his aged but still very attractive and wanting gaze, he notices. Joshua has recognized his mother’s necklace and all formalities are out the window. His mouth opens slightly in shock and his eyes pull together at the middle.

“Oh my God, Sarah, is that?”  He pauses.

I watch his eyes fill up with moisture, and I draw in a deep breath and nod.

“You kept it. All these years, you still have it?”

Again I can only manage a nod. The shock in his face is honest and genuine. We have so much to catch up on, and all I want to do is pull him in and tell him how I’ve never forgotten. His eyes are the same and the energy of his body so close to mine makes my chest scream out. If only I could turn back time…. If only, I think.

Joshua pulls my chair from around the table, so that it’s right next to his. We sit side by side, close to the window, and the waiter fills our glasses with the most perfect red wine. Softly, his hands rest on my exposed knees, his fingers wrapping around to the sensitive skin behind them. For a moment it feels as if my spirit lifts, my heart free.

I close my eyes and allow myself to be emotionally transported to a different place in time. I breathe in his scent. The hands on my legs no longer feel rough and calloused with aged. They’re young, strong, and smooth. I remember the heat of his body against mine, young and pulsating. When his hands ran up my thighs I instantly reminisce the feelings of our first night together. The night that I gave myself to this man. I gave him every part of me. Heart body and soul I gave it all. Joshua, my soldier. The man who left, but  I’ve carried inside myself for over thirty years.

It was a beautiful summer day in 1961.

The Suspenseful Collection Volume One: Eight Suspenseful Short Stories Across Multiple Genres

By Kim Knight & Didi Oviatt

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Two Suspense Authors Telling Tales this is your chance to own your very own copy of the awesome tales these two created from their readers votes.

 

~~~***My Review***~~~

If you want to go on a wild ride including Steamy Historical Crime Fiction, Psychological Fiction, Crime Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Suspense, Fantasy, Suspenseful Crime Fiction, to Contemporary Fiction then this is the book for you. It’s full of eight short stories primed to take you on an unforgettable journey.

I’ll only share two of the eight with you in this review.

Steamy Historical Crime Fiction: It was The First Time I Killed A Man.

This is the first story in the set and it is full of suspense and drama. I hung on every word. I’d love to see other short stories that include the bad girl Lisa and her past unthinkable deeds.

Lisa is New York’s first serial killer and she is a horribly intriguing character with her own brand of crazy.

Tiffany has been sent to visit Lisa in prison to get the scoop on her life before Lisa is sent to death for her crimes.

I think Lisa is my favorite character even though she is a mad women. Her victims are my least favorite for their behavior.

I enjoyed reading this story my only complaint is that it’s too short. I want more.

Fantasy: The Ones Who Live At The Bottom Of The Ocean, Come To The Surface.

This story is another well written short that I would love to see extended into a longer version maybe even a novella. I’m so intrigued and drawn into it.

We follow Zoe as she learns what her real heritage is. Her dragon grandmother has abandoned her mother but her mother never abandoned her duty to her peoples past.

The dragon grandmother was my least favorite character with her my way only attitude. But she does run the town. Zoe and her mother tie for my favorite characters in this one.

Again I thought the writing was great and my only complaint is there wasn’t enough of it.

~~~***Overall impressions***~~~

This book is filled with twists and turns sure to keep most readers on their toes. Surprises come from left field that add drama and intensity. For a blog experiment, I’m blown away.

Book: Family Matters

Series: In the Best Interest of the Child, Book 2

Author: Felicia Denise

Genre: Women’s Fiction

Release Date: July/August 2017

Goodreads: Short Link – http://bit.ly/FamilyMattersGRhttps://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35197909-in-the-best-interest-of-the-child

Synopsis:

Olivia Chandler’s journey to wholeness continues as she enters counseling. Her therapy will not be easy, and may not be successful unless Olivia can forgive her mother. But is Sarina Chandler the only one in need of Olivia’s forgiveness?

A Halloween party brings together a surprising group of people, and Bruce introduces Olivia to his adult children. Another Bellamy has a second chance at love – if he can put his old-fashioned ways aside.

The death of someone close to Olivia has her re-thinking the value of emotional connections. She withdraws from everyone, falling back into her old habit of burying herself in work. A surprise confrontation pushes Olivia to her limits, and puts her heart on the line.

Her continued avoidance of confronting Sarina Chandler pulls at the seams of Olivia’s new-found love with Bruce Bellamy. Olivia must make a decision. Save them… or surrender to her emotional demons.

Excerpt:

“Olivia Chandler? I’m Sandra Riley, Sarina’s case manager.”

The tall woman grasped Olivia’s hand into both of her own, shaking briskly. “We’re so glad you’re here today. This is a big step forward for your mother.”

“Nice to meet you, Sandra, and honestly, it’s a big step for me too.”

“Oh, I’m sure, Olivia. Any questions for me before you visit with Sarina?”

Visit with Sarina. She made it sound so cute and homey, Olivia thought.

“Does she know I planned to be here today?”

“Yes, she does. When Sarina asked about you a few weeks ago, she said she also knew you’d have little or no reason to want to see her, but she’d always hoped you come someday.”

Olivia stared at the woman blankly, not knowing how to respond to the comment.

“I’m sure this is confusing, Olivia, and now isn’t the time for me to explain all that Sarina has gone through, but please know she is fully cognizant of her aging, of you, her late husband”, Sandra paused only for a second, “she even remembers the accident. It’s everything between the accident and a few months ago that’s fuzzy for her. It’s as though a switch was flipped off in her brain that was recently turned back on.”

Olivia frowned but didn’t ask the question on the tip of her tongue.

“May I see her now?”

“Of course! Follow me.”

The case manager’s long legs covered the distance across the sitting area in no time at all, with Olivia almost scurrying to keep up with her. Margot and Randie were always teasing Olivia about her brisk walking pace, but she had nothing on Sandra Riley! Olivia would guess Sandra to be at least six feet tall… and light on her feet.

Reaching an unmarked door in the far corner, Sandra held it open for Olivia, who walked through and found herself standing in yet another sitting room, only this one resembled the average family room. Large, overstuffed chairs, throw rugs and even a flat screen television graced the area.

“Welcome to Honey Ridge East, Olivia.”

“Honey Ridge East? I don’t understand.”

Sandra pointed to a bulletin board on the wall near the door they’d just come through.

“The residents here are grouped by floor, the severity of mental disorder, and the amount of care and supervision needed. The healthiest, most independent residents reside here in Honey Ridge.”

“My mother is here…in this section?”

She nodded.

Olivia tried to digest the information. Her mother was healthy? Required little or no supervision? Trying to reconcile this new Sarina with the bedridden, incoherent woman she last saw five years ago was difficult for Olivia.

“How long has she lived here?”

Sandra pursed her lips, thinking. Then she nodded.

“I’m pretty sure Sarina was here for the group’s Valentine’s Day dinner dance, so that makes it eight months.” Sandra tried not to laugh at the horrified expression on Olivia’s face.

“Don’t be shocked. We also have Easter Egg hunts and 4th of July barbecues. Most of the residents have signed up for hayrides next week for Halloween, and…” she leaned in towards Olivia, “I heard Santa will visit on Christmas Eve.”

Shaking her head, Olivia was incredulous.

“What kind of mental hospital is this? I mean, um…I thought…”

The case manager guided Olivia past the sitting area while answering.

“River Ridge Meadows is a private care, private pay, voluntary commitment facility. We’re fully licensed by the state and the federal government. Insurance isn’t accepted here, and no resident is here against their will. We currently have one hundred and sixty-one residents ranging in age from seven to eighty-six. Most are from throughout the state, but there are a few from other parts of the country, and even four from Europe. River Ridge has two permanent, board certified psychiatrists, two permanent, board certified medical doctors, six psychologists, and a nursing staff…

Vested In Her, by Brickley Jules #blogtour #review @BrickleyJules @abookishdelight – Didi Oviatt

MY REVIEW 5 of 5 stars

Vested In Her

by Brickley Jules

I think I’m in love with the sexy Biker hunk Riker! The main character Haven (which I love the name BTW) really lucked out in landing this manly man! WOW he’s hot! What started out as an only sex, with all personal boundaries kind of fling, quickly grew into something more… Much more. Haven and Riker are pulled to one another in an intense and completely unavoidable way. Yes, their sex life is to die for. But in my opinion, their emotions really make the book that much better!

Haven is on the run, trying to escape her father’s Biker Club. More so than her father and the MC itself, Haven is forced away by her crazy heartless overbearing uncle. This guy is a real dick, and I didn’t blame Haven at all for wanting to get away from his pushy douche bag tactics. This uncle doesn’t care one bit for Haven, he has alternate selfish motives. The fact that Haven’s father allowed such non-sense is beyond me. I’m glad that daddy-o redeemed himself in the end, or I may have disliked him just as much as the uncle.

Haven travels by bus, on a spur of the moment rout, leaving no trail. When she stops to rest at a small trucker town far from the MC boundaries, she is discovered by a woman named Ruby. I love Ruby! She’s sweet, outgoing, funny, lovable, and everything Haven could have ever dreamed of for help in the journey. Ruby runs a small trucker stop and offers Haven a job and free room to stay in wile working for her. Their bond grows into something beautiful (I wont give away any details, but it’s perfect.) Ruby even helps Haven with a new look and name, as to keep hidden from the MC.

Riker, as an MC prospect, is on a mission to find Haven. Having never met her before in person, he doesn’t recognize her alias. He’s in question with her first look, but the second image that her and Ruby have concocted is able to hide her true identity from him. Needless to say, they are drawn to one another. They are comparable in EVERY way, and their bedroom shenanigans are as steamy as can be! I love what their relationship grows into, and the ending is exactly what I was hoping for.

I can’t wait for the next book in this series, you can bet I’ll be among the first to pre-order as soon as it’s available! Kudos Brickley Jules, this book is outstanding!

Brickley Jules – Vested In Her

Release date: April 26, 2015.

Blurb:

Small town biker princess Haven Mercedes Johnson wants to live a normal life, but she’s relentlessly protected by her father and his crazy right-hand man who will do anything to keep her under his thumb. With the help of an ex, Haven escapes the confines of the club, and after one last wild night, she eagerly sets off to start a new life. After being on the run for days, she’s taken under the wing of a kind woman named Ruby, and with her help, Haven disappears.

Riker Davis will do anything to earn a vest and become a member in Chrome Thunder, a prestigious motorcycle club. His chances are bleak until Haven, the club leader’s daughter, runs away. As a prospect, Riker is tasked to finding her, and he agrees, determined to do anything to earn a vest, including finding a woman who doesn’t want to be brought home.

Haven thinks she’s in the clear until Riker walks into the diner where she works, and her old life boomerangs back at her. Now she must choose, go back to her old life and give Riker what he wants, a vest in her father’s club, or give him up and keep the life she’s always dreamed of.

Excerpt:

Riker rolled of Haven panting, “That’s three.”

She agreed through ragged breaths, “It most certainly was.” Haven rested her arms on his shoulders. “I have this naughty little voice in my head that’s telling me to say something that would be a spankable offense, but I think it’s writing checks my body can’t cash. At least not til after I sleep for a little bit.”

“I would be more than glad to spank you in the morning. Tell it to hush then.”

Aggravated Momentum cover

Goodreads ButtonSynopsis

Deadly thriller, twisted plot, shocking, and dark conspiracy hardly scratch the surface to define Aggravated Momentum. Not everything is as it seems in what appears to be an average family. When danger lurks so close to home, skeletons emerge, and the darkest of secrets surface, causing twisted desires to become reality. Aggravated Momentum offers the perspective of some very diverse and unique characters, including fun, witty personalities to fall in love with, along with an intellectual killer to die for. You may be surprised as to whom exactly you can relate. Is it the cold, calculated murderer, who’s name is yet to be revealed? Markie or Kam, the independent sisters, guilty of nothing more than getting tangled with the wrong people at the most inopportune times? Or, the cowardly snake curled in a hidden corner? Who are you, exactly? And, more importantly, who are they? The deeper you dig into the psyche of another, the more breath taking are the secrets you will find.
