SLATER
For over a decade I searched for her. 
She disappeared a long time ago. 
But I never gave up.
Seeing her again, it was the only thing that kept me holding on for so long. 
Clutching onto the small chance that she might know who I am when I found her again. 
If I found her again. 
It was always a big if. 
But I wasn’t going to rest until I got answers, alive or dead, I would find her.
I needed to know what happened to the girl who took my heart when we were younger, and kept it for well over a decade. 
She owns every single piece of who I am. 
Nobody else has ever come close. 
And now I’ve found her.
And she’s lookin’ at me like she doesn’t know who I am. 
Like I wasn’t her first kiss. 
Her first boyfriend. 
Her first love.
Her first heartbreak.
The man who took her innocence. 
The man who destroyed her, and caused her to run. 
The man who spent ten years trying to find her, because of one pathetic, pitiful mistake. 
I ruined her. 
And now she has no idea who I am. 
Not a single damned clue. 

ELLIE
I don’t know who he is. 
And yet something about him seems strangely familiar. 
I know nothing of who I am. 
All my memories are like hazy nightmares. I don’t know which ones are real and which ones are fake. 
I don’t even know my own name. I don’t know anything about my past. 
I only know that for the last ten years, I’ve been Raven. 
Only that isn’t my real name.
But that’s what he called me.
The monster who owned me. 
The monster disguised as a saint. 
A monster I finally escaped.
And now there’s him. 
Slater. 
A man who claims to have spent the last decade searching for me. 
His Ellie. 
He claims I’m the love of his life. 
He’s desperate for me to remember him. 
But I don’t.
Even though when I look into his eyes, I feel strangely at home. 
Like he’s the missing piece of who I am. 
But can I trust him?
Can I trust the man who claims to love me, and yet is telling me he’s the reason for my hell?
Who is telling me, it is him, who destroyed me. 
Is he a bigger monster than the one I just escaped from?

There are angels and demons at war inside my head.

I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary and finally answer my calling of becoming a priest. What I hadn’t counted in the equation was her.

Grace Miller.

Excerpt

“Can I ask you something? It’s totally fine to say no.” She adds the last part quickly. She smiles and looks at the spot over my shoulder, her fingers tapping a quick beat on the table. She looks vulnerable, her eyes wide, allowing me to see how nervous she is. I mean, how can I say no to her?
“Sure.” I settle back on the seat and stretch my arms along the back of it.
“Can I . . . can I kiss you?” Her eyes snap back to mine, and she hurriedly adds, “I know you’re heading to Boston in a few weeks and—” She sucks in a deep breath. “I really want to kiss you. I promise I won’t try to do anything else. Just kiss you.”
Holy. Shit.
I take a deep breath, letting her words sink in, and realize I’m breathing faster than normal. My gaze falls on her mouth, and I literally stop breathing because that mouth, God help me. It’s like a gateway to a whole new galaxy where secrets and wishes are waiting to be unveiled.
I need to kiss her. I want to discover the universe beyond those full lips. I’ve been fighting the need to kiss her since I walked inside the diner and saw her wiping down the counter. But my brain is telling me it’s a bad idea and kissing her will irrevocably change me. Change my life. I know I won’t be able to come back from that. But the other part of me, the part that has a hopeless, desperate crush on this girl, just wants to drag her onto my lap and let her do whatever she wants.
“It’s getting late. We should probably lock up and leave,” she says in a small voice when I take too long to reply. She pushes her hair back before standing up and starting to stack our plates together. Her gaze meets mine briefly. “Look, I’m sorry I made this awkward. It’s not fair to you—”
I reach out, curling a finger through the belt loops on her jean shorts, and tug. But she doesn’t move toward me. Instead, her grip around the plates grows tighter, and she turns to leave.
“Gracie.” I tighten my hold, forcing her to set everything back on the table and look at me. “Come here.”
I pull her close while placing my other hand on her hip. Then, I slide both hands in the back pockets of her shorts, pulling her closer until all I can see is her face and her lips—so close to mine.
Her chest rises and falls quicker than before, and I realize mine’s doing the same. We stare at each other. I wonder if she regrets asking to kiss me. That thought makes my chest ache. Right now, in this moment, with my face inches away from her boobs, I’d do anything for a chance to know what she tastes like. My fingers skim along her arm and bury themselves in her hair. She trembles against me, so I know she wants this as much as I do.
Earlier today after leaving work, I drove home. My mind was preoccupied, and I was restless, so after taking a shower, I got into my car. And somehow, I found myself parking the truck outside the diner. Maybe this is why I came here; I don’t know. But I really want to find out.
“Do it.” My voice is a whisper. I’m almost breathless with want. I want to yank her down and kiss her myself, but she looks like she’s about to flee. So I let her come to me. “Kiss me.”
She sinks her teeth in her bottom lip as she comes closer. I’m glad I’m sitting down because my knees are shaking with anticipation. Then her lips touch mine, her eyes on me the whole time. Need has my fingers tightening in her hair as she presses her lips more firmly to mine. Her tongue peeks out, running along the seam of my lips. I groan and shift on the seat to ease the discomfort in my pants. My mouth opens, and the second her tongue touches mine, my body rattles with a shiver. This moment feels sacred. Like a blessing. It feels blasphemous and holy all at once. It scares me.
Tugging her into my lap, I fist her hair in my hands as I incline her hear further, fusing our lips together more firmly. But our noses are in the way, and we have to find the right angle to stop bumping into each other. It’s frustrating at first because I want her lips on mine and her breath mingling with my breath. Our heads finally slant in the right positions, and our lips fit perfectly. We both exhale in relief and groan at the contact.
Something in me breaks loose. Suddenly I’m pulling at her hair frantically, and my kisses become hungry and aggressive. I’m trembling and desperate and all I can think is I’ve never felt anything like this before, and I don’t ever want to stop or let her go. I don’t need to wonder if she’s enjoying this kiss too. Her hands fisted in my hair, yanking me closer and closer are all the answers I need. She’s pressing her chest into mine, and I swear I can feel her heart hammering. Neither one of us wants it to end.
We break apart and gulp for air, and my hands leave her hair, greedy to explore other parts of her, but they end up on her hips, pulling her further into me.
“More,” I beg, because right now, that’s all I can do.
Beg like my life depends on it. At this point, I feel like I’m about to go up in flames.

I feel like I need to start this review by stating that I stay well away from any romances that even hint at featuring religion or priests. I avoid them like the plague, I never normally get more than a couple of chapters in before I end up giving up. So why read this book after reading the blurb that hints that that’s what I’m going to be getting? Honestly? I’m a cover whore and I fell in love with this cover. But that’s not the only reason I picked it up. Autumn Grey is a new to me author and after been in a bit of a book slump I really wanted something different to what I normally read and what better than a new to me author? 

I went into this book feeling quite apprehensive. I wasn’t completely sure if I’d like it, or even end up finishing it, but I hadn’t even finished the prologue and I was already hooked. Something about Sol drew me in immediately and had me needing to know more. Maybe it’s because I felt I was given a chance to get to know Sol from a young age, maybe it’s because the story was about a young man that wanted to become a priest as opposed to someone that had already committed themselves fully. Sol intrigued me like no other and I really wasn’t expecting that. I wasn’t expecting to get inside his head like I did and I certainly wasn’t expecting to understand his thoughts and feelings so easily. 

Autumn Grey has done the unthinkable with this book. I’ve not only read a book featuring a young man wanting to enter into priesthood but I fell in book lust with a genuinely good guy. Solomon is the sweetest and while I’m usually all about a bad boy, there’s something about Sol that’s extremely easy to love. 

Both Sol and Grace are absolutely amazing characters. I felt like I’d gotten to know them both really well throughout the book and I really connected with them. The character development and the emotions they’re feeling are written perfectly. 

This is my first book by Autumn Grey and I know without a doubt it won’t be my last. The characters in this book have that special something about them, they came to life through the pages and the story is everything I didn’t know I wanted. The confusion, conflict and turmoil are all written perfectly. There’s a sense of innocence to the story and I couldn’t get enough of the characters. There really wasn’t anything in this book that I didn’t 100% love. 

This is the first part of the Grace trilogy and I can’t recommend this book enough. It sucked me in, chewed me up, spat me out and left me not only loving it but also desperate for more of Sol and Graces story.

Release Boost...No Tomorrow by Carian Cole




Title: No Tomorrow
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
 Release Date: September 13, 2018



Blurb

The people we love are thieves.
They steal our hearts. They steal our breath.
They steal our sanity.
And we let them.
Over and over and over again.


They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.

He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.

He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.

I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.

Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.

But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.

You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.

I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.

He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.
And hoping.
Again.

He was my salvation.

Addalyn “Addie” Blackfoot

I was somewhere I shouldn’t have been, doing something I shouldn’t have been doing. As Tyler Blackfoot’s daughter, I know better. There are expectations to being who I am, but I’ve never fully lived up to them.

Adoption.

It’s supposed to be the answer to prayers – both for the parents and the child. Me? I’ve always felt a little out of place, like I couldn’t settle down, a flower blowing in the breeze, waiting to be uprooted.

Until the moment he stepped in front of me, taking the blade of the knife meant for me. I didn’t know his name, but the way he looked at me, it was like he knew all my secrets, but didn’t care. It was reckless and passionate, and I never thought of the consequences.

I figured after I got what I wanted from him, I could break it off and never see him again.

I was wrong…….


Wilder “Wild” Evans

She came into my life when I least expected it. Strong, fearless, and ready to take whatever the asshole holding the knife was going to dish out.

For months after, I couldn’t get enough of her. Her joy in life, the way her eyes lit up when she saw me, and the smile that popped dimples in her cheeks when she wasn’t paying attention. She calmed every part of a man who’d never had steady and I craved it.

Then it was gone. She became a different person, left without a trace, and ignored my texts.

Fate intervened, and I found her again.

I got my calm...

She got her wild...
