Kiss the Boys by Chris Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was hauntingly beautiful like I imagine Nate’s angel’s to be. It was tragic yet so much blossoms and grows from that tragedy and so many people learn to love and forgive and grow-up and become the people they are meant to be all because of one woman. I love the lesson that can be learned from this book about not giving up through any tragedy and to fight for your life, your dreams, love, your future, someone else’s future, something, everything, just FIGHT! River absolves these boys of all their sins…it’s the perfect name. She gives everyone absolution. Don’t get me wrong, there are many triggers in this book so be forewarned. It deals with rape, drugs, PTSD, abuse, and lots of guilt and anger, but I love this book. Myers is a gifted writer who is able to tackle so many sensitive issues for both boys and girls who survive rape and abuse and the foster system. and feel shame and guilt but Myers does a beautiful job handling these tough topics. Everyone should read this book and realize what can happen and how just one person can make a difference.

I received this romantic suspense book from the author for an honest review.

Bare Bone Love and Suspense – Southern Style

Book Description:
Love
and Suspense – Southern Style
When a skull is found buried in the
courtyard of the Art House during renovations, executive director Meredith
O’Neill is forced to halt the over-budget and oft-delayed project. Working with
architect Kieran Ford has been a nightmare, despite his icy good-looks and
brilliant design. Now that the Art House is declared a crime scene, the entire
project is threatened. Forced to work together in close proximity, Meredith and
Kieran soon find the tensions between them changing into something else
entirely. Still, she can’t help but wonder how long the heat between them will
last, especially when Kieran was once so cold.
Kieran is donating his time and talents
to the Art House renovation, but working with Meredith is driving him crazy,
and his pro bono project is quickly
going south. When the skull of a child is discovered, Kieran must confront his
own loss as well as keep the project, and Meredith, on task.  Keeping his emotions in check proves to be
impossible, and Kieran soon realizes that he is falling for Meredith. When he
is framed for a crime, Kieran must learn to trust again. He and Meredith form
an uneasy alliance as they seek answers to the mystery at the Art House. But
someone is intent on destroying the historic building . . . and won’t hesitate
to harm anyone who gets in the way.
 
Excerpt:
The skull was small, that of a woman or child, the lower jaw
separated in the dirt, as if the mouth had been open during the internment
process. The foreman scraped away at the mud revealing a few bone fragments.
The clenched hand, turned upward, was disarticulated from the arm, as if the
skeleton had thrust its fist in anger at the gods. The man jerked back. It was
definitely a human skull. And this was no cemetery.
“Call the police,” he said to his worker. “And you better call the
architect, too.”
Meredith
stood over the hole, her four-inch heels sinking into the red clay, her linen
dress sticking to her body, slick with perspiration. She could clearly see bits
of bone and the smooth curve of the skull. There were a few longer bones
scattered about and what appeared to be a hand, balled up and reaching to the
sky. The grave was shallow, only a few feet deep, and it was a wonder that the
bones hadn’t appeared sooner. Meredith placed her hands on her hips, resisting
the impulse to jump into the hole and free the remaining skeleton from the dirt
and cradle it in her arms.
“It’s got to be human.” The foreman wiped his brow with a dirty
towel. Red clay smeared his forehead like dried blood.
“It’s a child,” Meredith said. She crouched down, looking closer.
Yes, it had to be a child. She cleared the muck from the back of her throat.
Digging her fingers in the mounded dirt, she felt the soil clump together
before she released it. The resting place for this poor soul. “I called the
police. Did you call the architect?”
The foreman nodded. The courtyard was quiet, the digger now
stopped, the work crew standing idly by, their heads hung in deference to the
grave.
Meredith stood up and brushed the morsels of clay from her
fingers. “I suppose we’ll be delayed again.” She didn’t know what else to say.
Turning her back on the hole, she saw the crowd of workers part and the
architect trudged toward her, his sleeves rolled up in the heat, his expression
that of exasperation. “Hello, Kieran,” she said. She offered her hand to him
even as her back stiffened. Although he was the project manager on this job, he
was still the last person she wanted to see.
“I halted the work. I’m sorry. I know we’re behind schedule
already…” He flung a tube of blue prints to the ground. He had a sheen of
perspiration in his forehead, which he wiped away impatiently. Dressed in
khakis and a button-down shirt, he looked as wilted as Meredith felt.
“The police are on their way.” Meredith stepped back as Kieran
gave her a look and then made his way to the edge of the dig site and looked
in.
“Shit.” He ran his fingers through his fair hair, the strands
sticking together and becoming disarrayed. “I’ve seen this before. In Mosul.
That’s definitely human.”

RUSSIAN TATTOOS: OBSESSION by Kat Shehata
Series: Russian Tattoos Trilogy, Book 1
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Genre Categories: Romance Mystery & Suspense, International Mystery & Crime
— SYNOPSIS —

Falling in love isn’t a crime—but falling in love with a Russian mafia boss could be deadly.

Competitive tennis player Carter Cook wants a taste of freedom. Her overprotective father monitors every aspect of her life, so when he becomes employed by Vladimir Ivanov—a sexy Russian with an array of tattoos and an accent that weakens her knees—a bit of danger is within Carter’s grasp. Behind her father’s back, she enjoys spending time with Vladimir at his lavish estate. But is he really the upstanding businessman she believes him to be?

Vladimir Ivanov reigns as godfather of a Russian mafia crime ring.

Vladimir spent five years of his life in a Siberian prison camp and has earned every tattoo inked into his skin. He is a powerful man who gets what he wants, and after stalking the gorgeous tennis player for years—he wants Carter. A little charm melts her heart, and behind the scenes, he orders his henchman to track her every move.He’s a tattooed stick of dynamite ready to blow at the slightest spark.

As their romance reaches deadly levels, Carter senses something’s not right. When she’s lured into a compromising position at the hands of a shady European drug dealer, she calls in Boris, Vladimir’s right hand man, to rescue her—without telling Vladimir. With his authority questioned, he sets out to teach Carter a lesson about loyalty she’ll never forget.

When Carter realizes she’s in too deep, she must fight for her freedom before the attraction turns fatal.

But the Russian mafia plays for keeps, and Vladimir’s fierce lust to possess her spirals their romance out of control.

— EXCERPT —
“No way. Promise you won’t rat me out to Dad.” I jumped in front of him and blocked my bedroom door, as if I could stop him. “He’ll be so ticked. Probably madder at you than me, and trust me, you don’t want to see him angry.”
Vladimir crossed his arms and studied my freaked out, arms-stretched-across-the-doorframe-stance. “You think I am afraid of your papa?”
“Of course not, but why do you want to provoke him? Everything’s fine. If he finds out, he’ll never let me see you again—please, I need you.”
Vladimir peeled my fingers off the doorframe, held my wrists, brought my arms down. He kissed my cheeks, but not in the usual way. His warm lips lingered on my skin while he massaged the nape of my neck. The closeness of our bodies and the heat emanating from his skin caused a groan to escape from my lips. Vladimir rubbed warm circles on my back and whispered Russian words in my ear to soothe me.
“What does it mean?” I whispered.
“Something good.”
Blood rushed down there. I wanted to tackle him on my bed and run my fingers through his sexy hair and touch his chest and feel the warmth of his lean, muscular body. Lately, I’d felt The Urge. Right or wrong, Vladimir lit my sexual fire. It wasn’t his body or his incredible blue eyes, it was how he made me feel—like the important person in his universe.
“What kind of good?” I laid my hand on his chest and snuck my finger inside his shirt to touch his skin. I traced the outline of the devil tat with my fingernail. Vladimir inhaled sharply, excited by my touch. I unbuttoned the top button of his shirt—
He lowered my hand. “Your papa will be home soon.” He left the house a minute before Dad turned into the driveway. I replayed the day’s events from his smoldering eyes, to his strong embrace, to the taunting words: “Oh, Carter is that what I am, your boss?”
What did he want to be? My friend? Boyfriend? Lover?

Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

He’s not her father’s pick. But he’s her only option.

Gage Barrett’s goal is to bring one of the biggest crime bosses in the city to his knees. The man runs drugs, extorts money, and has the profits laundered by the pretty Angelena’s father. Gage just has to get close enough to find the evidence he needs to put the guy away for good before another family is forced to live through a pain Gage is all too familiar with.

Angelena Bianco doesn’t understand why her father is so insistent she marry the son of one of his clients. Santo is a thug and she wants nothing to do with him. It will be a cold day in hell before she’ll walk down any aisle to that man. When the day comes for her to get married, it will be to a man of her choosing, not her father’s.

Lena has two months and few options. She needs to find a husband, fast before she’s forced into a situation she can’t live with.

Authors Note:
While my other books are mostly erotic romance, this one is not. Although, yes, there are a few sex scenes and yes there is coarse language. It is geared toward a mature audience. Her Choice is the first in a Trilogy called Family Ties. Each book is a complete novel, focusing on a different couple who will each have their own HEA or HFN. The main characters will make appearances in the other books. However, there is a story line that traverses all three books and comes to its own conclusion in Book 3. For that reason, these books will be best if read in order. I hope you enjoy my new venture.

EXCERPT:

Gingerly and as graceful as possible in the back of a limo while wearing running gear and stinking like the three miles she’d run, Lena crossed the short space and settled next to Gage. His sheer size and presence overwhelmed her. She quivered in excitement.

She tried to keep as much distance between them as she could. She didn’t want to mess up his uniform. Unfortunately, the bench seat was smaller than the other one and he took up lots of space. No matter how she moved, some part of her left side rubbed against him. And wow, did he smell so much better than her. Whatever scent he wore, she could spend the next hour with her nose wedged into the center of his chest or the curve of his neck. Which only edged the heat surrounding her up higher by a notch, or ten.

Her phone, tucked into her back pocket, rang out a melody indicating she’d just received a text message.

“Ignore it,” Gage murmured. He faced her and stretched one muscular arm along the top of the seat. He twined his fingers through her damp hair.

The play of his fingers created a tingle under her flesh. He was actually making her job easier by making the first move. She would start there. She could do this. She only needed it to be short lived anyway. She didn’t plan to keep him.

With time not on her side, she’d work with what she had. She needed a husband before her father forced her into a marriage she didn’t want. Gage Barrett was the best choice available for the position. Moreover, judging by the expression on his face, the flaring of his nostrils, and the way he kept shifting to get comfortable, the attraction was mutual. But she didn’t want to appear too easy. “I’m not sure this is appropriate.”

“Is the lady of the house lowering herself to play with the driver?”

She winced. “I don’t consider you the hired help, Gage.”

“That’s exactly what I am, Princess.”

She scowled. “I’ve asked you not to call me that.”

He narrowed his eyes, but not before she gasped at the intensity of the interest burning there. “Prove I’m not the just the hired help,” he whispered into the silent interior of the car.

Lena hadn’t realized just how well the car blocked all exterior noise from entering the sanctum of the lush leather and carpeting. A hundred yards away, down the curving driveway, cars zipped by on the street. Each week a landscaping crew mowed the lawn and weeded the gardens, but today wasn’t that day. No staff, no expected deliveries, nobody to question her motives. Other than herself.

He sat there, staring at her. His eyes dark, hungry orbs. He sucked in a breath. So did she, to capture that clean scent of his again. It was like an aphrodisiac. She watched him watching her, as each waited for the other to initiate contact. Her gaze dropped to his lips. His kissable lips. There was a hardness to his jaw, his whole face, but his lips looked soft. Wanting. Tasty.

Lena canted forward, closing the distance between them. He was the one to beckon her over, but he hadn’t attempted to bridge the gap.

She licked her lips and had the satisfaction of seeing his gaze dart to her mouth. She ran her tongue over them again, just to tease. To tempt. His breath fluttered over her eyes, down the curve of her nose, she was that close to him now. She lifted her lashes, and caught him staring at her. She saw her reflection in his pupils.

Shutting her eyes, she summoned her courage and removed the last remaining space between them. She pressed her lips to his.

Author Bio:

Sign-up for Anne’s Quarterly Newsletter: http://authorannelange.com/newsletter/

Shoes are my addiction, but books are my passion. I grew up with a love for reading. I read constantly. Probably too much some days. I read many genres of romance, but prefer to write sexy stories. I try to add some humor, and certainly my stories come with a side of those sinful pleasures your mom never told you about. Oh, and always a happily ever after.

I juggle a full time job and a family. Not always successfully. Clean house? Who needs one? And what’s wrong with cereal for dinner? I live in Ontario, Canada with my wonderfully supportive husband, three awesome kids who are growing up way too fast, and Rocky the bearded dragon.

Plenty of ideas are rolling around in my head all the time. So I can’t wait to write that next story.

I think that most people would give this book a five because the sexual explosion that emanates from Jax and Selena is off that charts. So, even though this book was a raging inferno, I actually wanted less sex and more substance. Don’t get me wrong; it was an amazing plot idea. It was suspenseful and loved seeing how Sel is able to awaken the light inside of Jax. I loved the friendship between Isa and Sel and how they were able to endure anything that happens as long as they have each other. But I also need to say, Jax got on my nerves from time to time with all his controlling behavior, but I also realize knowing his life, he needed that control. But overall, good book about love, life, and happiness.

Another great book by the Kirks and another night without sleep. These ladies are hilarious. I love that they banter with me on FB and even better that when I read, I burst out laughing causing my family to give me strange looks. This book has it all. It is suspenseful begging for each page to be turned and funny when I least expected. The HOT factor is started to steam up in book two between Ayden and Aurora and throws in just enough romance to keep the story going and yet not overwhelming enough to distract me. I have my suspensions about book 3, so I have to go read.
