About ABANDON:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Seaside Pictures series… It’s not every day you're slapped on stage by two different women you've been dating for the last year. I know what you're thinking. What sort of ballsy woman gets on stage and slaps a rockstar? Does nobody have self-control anymore? It may have been the talk of the Grammy's. Oh, yeah, forgot to mention that. I, Ty Cuban, was taken down by two psychotic women in front of the entire world. Lucky for us the audience thought it was part of the breakup song my band and I had just finished performing. I was thirty-three, hardly ready to settle down. Except now it's getting forced on me. Seaside, Oregon. My band mates were more than happy to settle down, dig their roots into the sand, and start popping out kids. Meanwhile I was still enjoying life. Until now. Until my forced hiatus teaching freaking guitar lessons at the local studio for the next two months. Part of my punishment, do something for the community while I think deep thoughts about all my life choices. Sixty days of hell. It doesn't help that the other volunteer is a past flame that literally looks at me as if I've sold my soul to the devil. She has the voice of an angel and looks to kill—I would know, because she looks ready to kill me every second of every day. I broke her heart when we were on tour together a decade ago. I'm ready to put the past behind us. She's ready to run me over with her car then stand on top of it and strum her guitar with glee. Sixty days. I can do anything for sixty days. Including making the sexy Von Abigail fall for me all over again. This time for good. Damn, maybe there’s something in the water. **Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Excerpt:

“You ready?” I gripped my drumsticks tightly in my right hand as the screaming from the crowd pierced my ears, causing an onslaught of adrenaline to pulse beneath my skin.
Drew, one of the leading frontmen for our band, Adrenaline, rolled his eyes and shot me a middle finger. Then he straight-up tugged his leather pants down below his hips to show off his legendary V.
We get it, bro, you’ve got an eight-pack where there’s usually only six.
With a flourish, I pulled off my simple white tee and shrugged. “What? Two can play that game.”
“Seriously, guys?” Will gave me a shove. “They already gave us shit last time about you two comparing dicks. It’s the Grammys, not the Super Bowl. We have to be clothed.”
I eyed him up and down. “Question. Was it your plan to go out there looking like the dad of the group, or was it just a happy accident?” He was in skinny jeans and a simple vintage tee and wore his typical thick black glasses that somehow still got him action from his wife, actress Angelica Greene. It was confusing when Will got action and I didn’t.
Not that I wasn’t getting any.
I inwardly smirked. I was dating one of our background dancers, while at the same time hooking up with one of Zane’s—both of which were performing with us tonight. Hey, it wasn’t like I planned for them to ever meet! And before you get your panties in a twist and start calling me a whore while chanting things like “I pray your dick falls off,” let me explain.
I have a solid reason for dating both women.
You ready for it?
The truth bomb of the century?
I don’t actually have a heart. You see, a long time ago in a land where my innocence thrived—you know, before the mistakes with the drugs, alcohol, and the time I carried a live chicken on stage and kissed it—I was in love.
Real love.
Not the kind where you say it just because you want to have sex with someone so badly, you’re willing to sell your soul to the devil. Twice.
Real, honest to God love.
Her name? Abigail.
Her current status? Breaker of souls and spawn of Satan.

Book Info:

Title: Office Mate Series: Milford College #2 Author: Noelle Adams Genre: Contemporary Romance

Summary

The last thing I want is to share my beautiful office with an uptight, unfriendly new English professor. I don't care if he's incredibly hot. He's still the worst office mate in the world. We're stuck together for a year, and that might be too long for me to resist discovering what's hiding beneath his buttoned-up appearance. Office Mate is the second book in the Milford College series, novellas about the faculty and staff of a small liberal arts college    

Enjoy a fragment

“Hey,” I say as I come in, dropping my keys onto my desk and turning to face him. He looks up from his computer. His expression is unsmiling but not angry. “Hi.” “I’m sorry about before. I’m not sure what got into me. I’m not usually so… irritable. I’m really sorry.” His mouth turns up just a little. His eyes soften palpably. “Evidently I’m an irritating kind of person, so that probably explains it.” “No, you’re not!” I lower my tone as I continue. “You’re really not that irritating. I should never have implied that about you. It’s just that I’m usually really good at getting to know people, and I’ve been frustrated that I can’t seem to get to know you.” He frowns. “You don’t know me?” “Of course not.” My eyes are wide in surprise. “You think I’ve gotten to know you?” “I thought we were making progress.” He seems bothered by that piece of information, and he looks down at his desk as if he’s thinking. “I’m afraid I’m never going to be the life of the party, if that’s what you’re hoping for.” “I know that. I mean, I don’t care about that. I like all kinds of people. I just feel like you’ve got so many walls up I can’t seem to get around them.” “Maybe if you wouldn’t run away every time things start to get better between us.” Shit. He has no idea. I have to run away occasionally, but it’s not because I don’t want to get to know him. It’s because I want to tear his clothes off. No way I can admit that to him. I clear my throat and think fast. “I haven’t run away that much. You just confuse me.” “What can I do to be less confusing?” Leave it to Evan to go about getting to know someone with the same sober determination he uses to tackle everything else. “I don’t know. Don’t you ever just hang out and relax?” “You want to hang out with me?” Yes. Of course I do. In particular, I want to hang out in bed with him. “I just meant to get to know each other a little more. So we can get along better and be more comfortable sharing the office.” There. That didn’t sound too bad. That didn’t give away my irrational lust for him. He nods. “I like to bike, but that’s obviously not your thing. I can go with you when you walk, if you’d like. Or…” “Or what?” “I was thinking about watching the Lord of the Rings movies since you like them so much.” My heart clenches. Ridiculously. “You were?” “Yes.” “Maybe you can watch them with me. I would enjoy that.” “You would?” “Yes. Would… would you?” “Of course I would.” His eyes never leave my face. “What if you don’t like them?” “I’m sure if you like them, then they can’t be that bad.” We smile at each other, and I let out a long breath. I still have way too many papers to grade today, but things are definitely looking up.

Summer Nights Blurb:

The final installment in Marlo and Ray’s story of revenge, love, and the thin line between hate and passion.
They’ll fight until the bitter end.
After all what is love without a whole lotta hate? 
Life has a way of altering a person when you’re forced to face the end of it, and now Marlo and Ray refuse to let the hate win especially since everyone is counting on them.
They’re ready for the final curtain call.
And this one, may be the most important one of their lives as tragedies turn into happily ever afters, and dark secrets are revealed.

Review:

Summer Heat is a modern-day Dirty Dancing story.  Boy and Girl meet.  The boy is from the wrong side of the tracks.  Boy and Girl are attracted to each other even though they know its a bad idea.  Tension and hijinx ensue.  Rachel Van Dyken pulls off this new adult story flawlessly, with just the right amount of angst to be appropriate for this age group, but without being frustrating to get through as a reader.  This book ends with enough of a cliffhanger you will definitely want to read the next... and then the next... and you will not be disappointed.

Book Review - One Year Home by Marie Force

ABOUT THE BOOK


He came home a hero and lost the only woman he’s ever loved...



John
I have no idea how to survive without my beloved Ava. She had no choice but to move on with her life during my six-year deployment and has now married Eric. I hate him for taking her from me. I’d prefer to wallow in my depression and heartbreak, but the whole damned world wants a piece of the SEAL Team leader who helped capture the world’s most-wanted terrorist. I need help handling the relentless requests, and when Ava sends her new sister-in-law to manage the media circus for me, I’m prepared to hate her on principle. Her brother took my Ava. What else do I need to know about her?

Julianne
It takes five seconds to realize Ava’s ex is going to be the most complicated and difficult client I’ve ever had, but the opportunity to represent the most celebrated man in the world could make my career. I’m determined to do the job, even if I dislike John from the moment I meet him. And I like everyone. So much so that my brothers worry about me being exploited by those who would take advantage of my unwavering love for others. But John… He’s in a class by himself, and his bitterness is a festering wound that I begin to wish I could somehow fix for him. The more time we spend together, the more our mutual disdain morphs into something that feels an awful lot like desire. There’s no way I can want this man, or so I tell myself, and when Eric finds out I’ve developed feelings for the man causing trouble in his new marriage, well…

That’s going to be a hot mess. 

The hotly anticipated follow up to Five Years Gone is here! Praise for Five Years Gone:

"I will never be the same after reading this book." —5 stars from As You Wish Reviews

"There is not a doubt in my mind that this book will be one of the top books of 2018 for me." —5 stars, Julie from Hey Girl HEA

"A gut-wrenching emotional roller coaster, Five Years Gone was an incredibly moving novel about the sacrifices we make for the ones we love." —4.5 star review from Harlequin Junkie

"The stars take turns telling the fast-paced story from their points of view in Force's hard-to-put-down tale." —review from Booklist

"Five Years Gone is a story of loss, love, and above all strength. I am in awe with this book and cannot get it out of my head. MUST READ FOR 2018!" —5 stars from Crystal's Book World

"Force entices with heartbreak, but inspires with tales of courageous sacrifice and hope. If truth is more powerful than fiction, Ms. Force blurs the line between the two." —5 Stars from Isha Coleman

"An incredible moving novel. This story is all about the characters, and what wonderful, developed characters they are. Story is told in multiple POV and it gives you all the feels. This is a gut-wrenching rollercoaster that leaves you feeling for the characters ...feelings of heartbreak as well happiness and hope. I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel to this brilliantly told story." —5 stars from Lisa at Comfy Chair Books

REVIEW

I’ve been waiting anxiously this past year for John’s story after reading Five Years Gone and I wasn’t disappointed.  The sequel is not as emotionally charged as the first but still packs a punch and leaves the story at a satisfying conclusion.  Five Years Gone really stuck with me after I finished it and I have found myself thinking back to that book and wondering how those characters were doing.  One Year Home is so much more than just a check-in with those characters and more a continuation of the story.  This story is very motivational, providing insight into what it would be like inside the mind of a military man who had his entire life changed through his service to his country and he remains humble and understanding.  Many books would focus on the PTSD aspect or being a reluctant hero, but this story focuses on John and how he accepts the life he has and is trying to work his way forward.  This isn’t a military story or about a woman fixing a broken man, it’s just a continuation of a story about a National tragedy and how it impacted this small group of people.  Well done Marie Force.
