The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post
Hosted by:

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer~ It's a chance to share new ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

Another week of quarantine only this one just was a taste of what to expect this summer. We've started opening up retail and restaurants in my area but it's not worth fighting the crowded stores. I did hit Trader Joes which is my favorite place for fruit. Added a bunch to my fruit bowl. 

We spent the week in triple digits most of the week or upper the rest of the week with a little break this weekend. Sadly we will be headed back to triple digits again this week. At least we have ac and can stay cool. 

 I ended up not cooking as much this week due to the heat. I did order a panini press so the munchkin and I have been making lots of sandwiches and pasta salad. I'm making a new batch of pasta salad today trying a new recipe.  

Read the last week
Not much reading but we are down to the last few days of school so now we can get back into a normal routine. I miss having quiet time and doing the school struggle. 
I have a summer list I can't wait to read.

COVER REVEAL - Like You by Rachel Leigh

Title: Like You
Series: Redwood High #2
Author: Rachel Leigh
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: RL Kenderson, RL Covers
Release Date: June 25, 2020

I’ve got everything going for me—the grades, the scholarship, the goals. I’ve had it all planned out for years. Then she came along. On the outside she has it all together—on the inside she’s damaged goods. She needs me. I just have to decide if she’s worth everything I’m about to lose. 

I came to this town to escape the claws of my past. A simple life in a small town—I just want to live under the radar and blend in. I was doing just that until Knox caught my eye. They say when you know, you know—that we can’t help who we fall in love with. The rules are pretty simple, so why am I breaking them all? I’m a teacher, and he’s my student—this can’t end well. More than just rules are going to be broken. I just hope his heart can be mended when it’s all said and done.

I shift the old beater in drive and peel out as quick as I can, leaving a trail of smoke in my path. The smell of burning rubber fills the car and it isn’t until I round the corner that the smoke diminishes. Behind me, just like my life—my past. With only the duffel bag riding co-pilot, and the stash of money I was able to get from the safe. 

It won’t be long until he’s on the phone with all of his goons to start the search for his missing property—me. At least that's the way I have lived my life for the past few years, as a prisoner. His prized possession that he kept up on the shelf, out of reach and displayed with the utmost prestige. 

If I so much as wore the wrong color, he’d lose his fucking mind. I never went down without a fight, and when I did, I fought hard. I’m pretty sure that’s what he liked the most, feeling the wrath of my bitterness. He felt it alright, with the head of a golf club, straight to the balls. I hit him so hard that he’s probably choking on them right now. 

None of it matters anymore. 

I drive for what feels like hours, though it was only two. Those two hours have put enough space between myself and the life I lived that I feel confident enough that it’s safe to pull into the next rest stop. My stomach growls as I take a sip of my cold coffee. 

I pull into the first space available and my eyes search the parking lot, just to be sure he didn’t follow me. 

The coast is clear.

I reach over and unzip the black bag and pull out my wallet, pulling out my new i.d. Claire Hyland—my new identity. Just the last name, anyways.  I’ve been working on the name change for a while, with the plan to take off as soon as everything finalized. It’s the only way I can leave and not be found. I still can’t believe Jorge pulled this off in time. The car, the room to rent, and the interview. Apparently he has some connections with a well-known family from Redwood. It just so happens that they were in need of an art teacher. 

I’m forever in his debt. He’s my best friend and the only person who knows that I left, let alone, where I’m going. 

I pull out the papers he printed for me on the job. 

Redwood High School
Long-term Art Substitute 

I’ve never taught before. I don’t even like kids, let alone hormonal know-it-alls—but, there isn’t much out there with an arts degree.  A temporary teaching position is the perfect way to live low-key, for now, anyway.

Escape into the world of Rebel Rage MC, where laws don’t apply, loyalty is everything, and love is worth fighting for.

The President

When Alaric meets the right woman under the wrong circumstances, as the president of Rebel Rage MC, his options are limited… unless he can strike a deal that would benefit the both of them.

Making the best of a bad situation, Angie accepts the help of the muscled, overbearing biker who offers her protection from the danger stalking her at every turn.

As the death of a woman unleashes a chain of events that draws out new enemies and threatens everything he holds dear, Alaric will do whatever it takes to protect what he considers his.

The Vice President

When Hunt’s daughter goes missing, he’ll do whatever it takes to find her. Unexpectedly, the vice president of Rebel Rage MC stumbles across the right woman along the way.

After a hot encounter with a sexy, arrogant biker, Peyton never expected to see him again, but fate has other plans. When she is unwittingly pulled into a dangerous situation far beyond her control, Hunt swoops back into her life, vowing to protect her.

Will Hunt be able to save both his daughter and the woman he loves, or will this threat be too much for the MC to handle?

The Prospect

As a prospect of Rebel Rage MC, Linc’s assignment was simple: take care of the woman who was kidnapped. Easy… except for the riot of emotions she stirs within him.

Harper is broken and has the scars—inside and out—to prove it, but the love of a headstrong, protective biker might be just what she needs to heal.

While Linc and Harper dare to explore their developing feelings, danger lurks within the shadows, waiting to drag Harper back into the torment she barely survived the last time. Linc will risk it all to make sure that never happens, but will it be enough?

RELEASE BLITZ - Something Twisted by Ace Gray

Title: Something Twisted
A Twisted World Series Standalone
Author: Ace Gray
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: May 28, 2020

I’d spent my life as a plaything. A toy to be used by powerful and deadly men in whatever way they pleased. So I was just as surprised as anyone else that I had feelings left. Feelings that lead me to fight for true love while damning myself.

And that’s just where this story begins.

Desperate and alone I turned back to my childhood home. The first wicked place I’d known with the darkest villain among them. My stepfather. But I could weather his storm in exchange for safety. I had to.

What I didn’t expect to find was Niall McDonough. The only man I’d ever really loved had reappeared only to become one of them. Someone ruthless and cruel. He wants to ruin me. As my stepfather’s savage soldier he might just do it.

But then again, twelve years ago a fortune teller predicted I’d need just such a soldier to save both my heart and soul.

****This book contains graphic sex, violence, uncomfortable sexual encounters, and dub con. It's intended for mature audiences, over 18 only****

“My, my, this is interesting. Perhaps Deirdre is an appropriate name after all.”
“What the shit is going on here?” My mind was clearing. Sort of.
“I’m reading your future, darling. Your dismal and sorrowful future.”
I felt like I’d been hit. Hard. And I knew what it was like to be punched, slapped, kicked… I tried to shake off the list. 
“What does it say?” My words were shaky, no matter how I tried to steady them. 
“You will cause much unrest in this little corner of the world.”
The hair on the back of my neck stood up. No, was on the tip of my tongue. My mom had gotten me out of a life of mobsters and murderers. I wasn’t an Ulster anymore. I wouldn’t be. I was just another teenaged girl wondering about her future. 
“Rivers of blood. Chaos and pain. Betrayal all at your hand,” she mused in partial phrases. “You will need a soldier at your side if you wish to be free of it all.”
“A soldier?” I swallowed, sorrow swelling in my heart. 
“Someone to wage war. Someone ruthless and brutal and savage.” She arched her eyebrow. “If you don’t find him, you both end up dead. Just like the legend.”
I rolled my eyes with a wild grunt and shoved up from the table. “Convenient legend,” I snarked under my breath.
“Heed my words or don’t, it makes no matter to me. It’s your fate and your fate alone that you have to face.” She shrugged before unwinding to stand. Incense swirled around her again as she walked toward the back corner of the room. 
I shoved up from the stupid pillows on the stupid floor of the stupid Irish gypsy and started to stomp off.
“Today, lightning will strike, Deirdre of the sorrows.” Her voice seemed far away, too far away. “Take that as a sign of what’s been set in motion.”
