Finished Last Week
Alice In No Man’s Land by James Knapp
When her escape pod falls to earth, crashing in Ypsilanti Bloc, privileged seventeen-year-old Alice Walshe is dashed from the wonderland of wealth and prosperity into a ruined, walled city overrun with militias, gangs, and even cannibals. On top of this horror, her younger brother’s escape pod is missing.
Alice isn’t naïve – she’s always known blocs like Ypsilanti exist, left behind after a foodborne illness ravished the country decades earlier and left pockets of severe urban decay in its wake. Men like her father – a major player at Cerulean Holdings – renew the devastated blocs and bring stability back into the areas. But, Ypsilanti is even worse than the tales she’s heard, and rumor has it the bloc is faced with the threat of extermination by Cerulean, not renewal.
Trapped within Ypsilanti’s borders and left for dead, Alice teams up with a pair of teen scavengers who tracked the wreck of her pod. Despite their rough exterior and vulgar speech, they’re her only option for navigating the hostile and violent environment of Ypsilanti, finding her brother, and getting out of No-Man’s-Land alive..
Surge by Sloan Storm
Dyson Vix. The bad boy of Formula One Racing.
The first time I met him he was completely naked, and he couldn’t have cared less.
The second time I saw Dyson, he just stood there, staring at me. His fire suit hung low on his waist, and his body was dripping in sweat, grease and… well, you get the idea.
The ultimate playboy, there isn’t a hairpin turn he can’t handle or a woman he can’t have. Dyson lives life like he drives – hard, determined, and like it might be his last day.
We couldn’t have been more different. After a family tragedy, I’ve been left to raise my nephew, Simon, all alone. Raising him has given me more joy than I could’ve imagined, but it came at a price. He is my entire world, and everything I do is with him in mind. I haven’t had a date in months, instead focusing solely on him. Man troubles are the last thing we need, especially the kind reckless thrill seeker Dyson Vix would bring.
But fate has other ideas.
I’ve been thrust into his fast-paced world, and the more time I spend with him — the more I see of the troubled man behind the roguish charm — the more my resolve crumbles. Our chemistry is undeniable but isn’t without risk. Jealousy and threats to my home life mean I could lose everything I’ve worked so hard to protect.
The stakes have never been higher.
Will we make it, or are we destined to crash and burn?
The Fastlane Series books are stand alone romance novels featuring unique lovers and happy endings. No cliffhangers! Surge is Dyson and Ava’s story and is Book #1 in the Fastlane Series.
Hate Sex by Billy Storm
I, Skye Briar Blake, am simply a girl trying to make her way in the world.Corny enough for ya? Well, it’s true though.
I work part time at a diner where most of the patrons are drunken frat boys with an unending appetite for chili cheese fries and the gift of quoting the worst pickup lines known to man and beast. But, at night I make my way to part time job numero dos at Pinkies. Yep, you guessed it…a strip club—rather a gentleman’s club featuring exotic dancers. Better? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Serving drinks and stocking baskets of stale pretzels was never my life goal or anything, but it pays better than the diner, and I don’t come home reeking like deep-fried crap.
I’ve actually found a family at Pinkies and that’s something I’m severely lacking.
For the most part, I can’t complain…that is I couldn’t until Jaden came into my life, insulted me about my weight, and then, screwed me until I couldn’t see straight. Jerk. Makes no sense, right? Try being me.
As if on cue, enter Rhett, panty-melting Rhett, and he likes me, no, like really likes me.
With two men knocking on my door *heh-hum* so to speak, I’m more confused than I’ve ever been and quite honestly, I just don’t know what to believe anymore.
This is my story. The good, the bad, and the downright wrong—it’s all me and I’ll have to live with the repercussions of my decisions and hope, in the end, I don’t HATE myself.
HATE Sex will tick you the f*ck off. Homicidal thoughts may cross your mind revolving around a certain arrogant s.o.b. And, by the middle of the book? You’ll want to dish out a bitchslap of epic proportions to my heroine. GOOD! Hand me a lollipop because all that means is that I succeeded in sucking you into this twisted vortex of sex, hate and possibly love whether you wanted to be sucked or not.
Les Croz de Linda Saint Jalmes
Égypte, 7 novembre 1828
Kalaan Fébus, comte de Croz, ainsi que l’éminent savant Jean-François
Champollion, se retrouvent à l’improviste sur les rives de l’antique cité de Tell
el-Amarna. Pour le jeune noble, c’est la providence qui frappe à sa porte en la
personne de Champollion, l’unique être qui puisse déchiffrer les hiéroglyphes
qui figurent sur le mur d’entrée du mystérieux édifice que Kalaan vient de
Providence, vraiment ? Car le comte, après s’être introduit dans l’étrange
construction, est touché de plein fouet par une malédiction. Dès lors, il ne lui
reste qu’une seule solution pour contrer l’infâme punition des dieux antiques :
rentrer chez lui en Bretagne et aller trouver le gardien des pierres.
Surviving Ice by K.A Tucker
Ivy, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is finally looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have found it in San Francisco, but all that changes when she witnesses a terrible crime. She’s ready to pack up her things yet again, when a random encounter with a stranger keeps her in the city, giving her reason to stay after all.
That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter wasn’t random. Not at all…
