Tor
Jude and I managed to salvage something beautiful from the war torn rubble of our lives, a blissful happiness that we paid for in blood. We fought our way here, leaving pieces of ourselves along the way. I thought this was the happily ever after in our twisted fairy tale, but I was wrong.

Jude
I may be free by definition. That freedom came at a heavy cost and my family is about to pay the price. At any moment, this façade will come crashing down. Hard. The life I've lived—that kind of world—it stains you, and no matter how hard you try, you can never escape its wrath. Not even in death.

Love. Fear. Loss.

We're walking a wire and all that's beneath us is destruction.

Release Boost: The Bad Guy




Title: The Bad Guy
Author: Celia Aaron
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 21, 2017

Blurb
My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I’m the villain of this story.
I’ve decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you’ll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn’t there.
Don’t mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.
She was a damsel, one who already had her white knight. But every fairy tale has a villain, someone waiting in the wings to rip it all down. A scoundrel who will set the world on fire if that means he gets what he wants. That’s me.
I’m the bad guy.

Disgrace: the condition of one fallen from grace.
She is my forbidden fruit. The one temptation I cannot resist.

I rescued her from an attack in the seedy underground of New York City.
The second night…
She told me the first of many lies.
She thinks she can keep me out of her world, but she’s in over her head. Watching her, being near her, it gives breath to something dark inside me. Something primal and forbidden. Forbidden to me.
Because in six months, I’ll be an ordained priest.
And she complicates things.
She thinks she is my disgrace. Truth is, my fall had begun the moment I’d laid eyes on her.

Excerpt
“How many drinks have you had?” Dane asks, grinning.
“Umm…”  I count on my fingers, trying to recall.  “Maybe four?  Or, like, five?”  I shrug.
He takes a sip of the rum and Coke I made him, before bringing his eyes to mine.  “I really a sorry, Emma.  I feel like shit about the whole thing.”
“Shit happens,” I say nonchalantly, not letting on how much the whole scenario humiliated me.
“Assholes cause it,” he agrees.
I giggle.  “You’re funny!  How is it you can be funny and hot?  You can’t be both.  You have to choose one or the other,” I announce bossily, but jokingly.  Kinda. 
“I guess I’ll choose funny then.  Looks fade, after all.”
Gah!  You’re smart, too?  This is so unfair!”
He leans toward me, his soft puffs of breath skating over my face.  “You know, you’re funny and smart and so fucking beautiful, Emma.  But you’re also humble and kind, and sweet enough to give a guy like me a toothache.”
“Oh, my god,” I whisper. 
He leans in further and then his fingers hold my chin, keeping me in place, as his lips sweep across mine.  I open up for him and his tongue invades my mouth.  Soft, sweet, slow.  He tastes like peppermint breath mints with a hint of spicy rum.  I kiss him back with an intensity I didn’t know I possessed.

Genre - YA Shifter

"I was always the strong one. I was independent, determined, and willing to do anything to get what I wanted. I’m not that girl anymore. Everything started to change when I ran from both my family and my mate." 

Savanna has been on the run from her family and her soulmate for the last 8 months, but everything changes when she goes back to her hometown for a funeral. A confrontation with the mafia (who just so happens to be her brother) goes south, and her soulmate is the only one who can protect her. Will she let him keep her safe, and will she let him into her heart? Only time will tell. 

Opening LIne
"Are you sure you want to go back?" Leah asked me. She was nervous enough for the both of us.

Review
Savvy has spent the last few year running from her family, determined to get away from the mafia life which almost killed her. She's not just running from her family anymore, now she's also running from her mate, but has always been one step ahead. When her brother catches her at her friends funeral if not for her mate showing up things could have turned bad quickly. Now she's gone into hiding with her mate she doesn't know anything about him other than he's not trying to kill her. 

It's clear that Jordie wants to protect her at all cost but he's doing his best to keep it to just protection. They both have pasts but the more time she spends with the more she wants to know about him. Savvy finds that Jordie is just what she needs a good guy if only she can break into his shell they may just get the happy ever after. Well if they can avoid a vengeful brother who's determined to use Savvy to get what he wants. 

We had a chance to meet Savvy a little in the prior book but she really started to shine in her own book. Now is her chance to get her happy ever after even if she doesn't think she wants it just yet. I really like the chemistry between Savvy and Jordie it just works they are perfect for each other. 

I just finished the first one so I had to dive right into Savvy's story More Than A Panther. I really love the concept for the Shifty girls, it's a unique spin on shifters. The characters are easy to connect you can't help cheering them on, and I love a happy ever after. The author has created an exciting new world for her shifter girls to spread their wings and bring the shifter world into the modern day. I really enjoyed the authors writing style it's a captivating story that flows from start to finish. I've already got the next one on my Kindle and can't wait to read the next shifty girls story. Highly recommend for those looking for clean YA paranormal romance.

Opening Line
My life has always been a series of contradictions. I was born into a family of Vampire Hunters and spent my early childhood chasing monsters. After my parents were killed during a hunt, I was raised by a family of mortals. 

Grace Hardwick never thought her life would end up like this. She was born into a vampire hunting family but when her parents were killed, she was sent to live with a foster family. After ten years of a “normal” life, the monsters from her past have returned. 

When Grace is attacked the night of the Homecoming Dance, she is taken to the Darkness- a sanctuary for Dark Souls, also known as vampires, that have given up killing humans. But not everyone believes that monsters are capable of good, and a group of Hunters is closing in on the Darkness with only one goal- eliminating it. 

Grace has been brought to the Darkness at the command of its Premier, William Blackwood. He believes that Grace is the only one that can help save them. William is a centuries-old vampire and therefore Grace’s sworn enemy, but that is not the greatest challenge Grace faces in the Darkness. 

In a world where nothing is at it seems, Grace must quickly learn who she can trust. She was brought to the Darkness to save it, but it isn’t long before she realizes that the Darkness may destroy her.
