Synopsis

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.

After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.

All I wanted was for him to come back to me.

Then, Jackson Emery appeared.

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…

I prayed for him to be mine.

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

Synopsis

Salana Livingston did everything right, from taking her multi-vitamin to kneeling before bed to say her prayers every night. She followed the path her parents had planned before she was born, never questioned the role until the day a bus-load of sweaty kids from the Bronx got dropped at her parent’s horse farm.

Tiago Alcazar knew a life of hard knocks. An incarcerated father, a missing and strung-out mother who left him to rely on his aged grandmother for most of his life.

Tiago runs the mean streets of the neighborhood that raised him, living hand-to-mouth, everyday a gift, if he can just make it.

Burdened by a world that only wants to see her as perfect, Salana finds her greatest confidant in a boy society has labeled as worthless. Their paths cross too many times for their stubborn hearts to deny the connection, but can the delinquent and the debutant defy the odds and overcome the social constructs that condemn them?

Synopsis

The perfect man for me is the one who broke my heart.

#thanksbutnothanks

Once bitten.
Twice shy.
Yeah, I wish.

I’m on a mission to find myself a nice, solid, respectable man. The only problem is nice, solid, and respectable comes in a meh package and is B-O-R-I-N-G as hell.

It’s been established. I have one type. Bad Boy. I tried the other flavors, I really did. But there’s nothing like the allure of a man who takes what he wants without apology.

As if my love life isn’t dramatic enough, Dean Bennett walks into my life again thinking he’s going to win me back with his charm and charisma. He might come in a different package, but under that expensive suit he’s still the same cocky, arrogant, pompous prick who only cares about numero uno.

I’m not that naïve young girl anymore so I have to ignore the fact that the way he looks at me practically sets my panties on fire.

Everyone deserves a second chance to right a wrong. The problem? He’s not just an ex-boyfriend…

He’s my ex-husband.

Synopsis

The first time you meet someone, you make eye contact. You smile, say hello. Should be simple, if you’re anyone but me. The first time I met Dylan Reed, I found myself making eye contact with a different part of his body. You see, I’m very good at being shy, not to mention extremely well-versed in rambling nonsense and, unfortunately, rather highly skilled at making a fool of myself in front of a guy I’m attracted to.

At the time, I knew nothing about him and thought none of what I said would matter since I’d never speak to him again. Turns out, I was very wrong. He was the star wide receiver of the football team, one of the few players expected to make it into the NFL, and I ended up seeing him all over campus.
I might have also propositioned him, run away from him, attacked him with a cooking utensil…and…uh, maybe I shouldn’t tell you all of it. It’s pretty normal stuff, things you’d expect…from me. Eventually, the time came when I couldn’t hide anymore—not that he’d have let me even if I tried.

Before now, he never knew I was secretly watching him. Now that we see each other every day, he knows when I have a hard time looking away. It doesn’t help that I’m not the most subtle person in the world either.

He smiles at me and tells me he finds me fascinating because of my quirks. I can’t even tell him that I think my heart beats differently whenever he’s around.

He thinks we’re going to be best friends. I think I have a big thing for him, and the more I get to know him, the more I don’t care that I’m not allowed to be his friend, let alone fall for him.

The thing is, that’s exactly what I’m doing—what we’re doing, I think.

Falling.

Hard.

About Ella Maise

I’m a big dreamer. And that’s how it all started for me, really. Reading and dreaming. I love nothing more than to escape real life to find those very few magical moments in a book. I love how it has the power of stealing your worries away, putting a smile on your face even when smiling is the last thing on your mind. Crushing on fictional characters is also another bonus. Through my words, if I can manage to make even one-person smile, it means I’ve done my job well.

Writing became my world and I can’t imagine myself doing anything other than creating new characters and telling their stories. You know how some things simply makes your heart burst with happiness? A really good book, a puppy, hugging someone you’ve been missing like crazy? That’s what writing does to me. And all the hard work, all the sleepless nights, all the anxiety that comes with publishing…everything is worth it at the end.

Release Date: April 12, 2018
Buy Now: Amazon

Synopsis

When I said I would kill for her, I meant it. When I said I would die for her, I meant that, too.

But protection comes with a price and so does my life.

I can’t hold her.

I can’t speak to her.

I can’t even see her.

The most important piece of my life is gone.

I had everything.

I had Winnie.

And just like that, my unconditional love vanished.

Picking up the pieces is impossible.

There’s no easy way to fall out of love.

But that’s exactly what I have to do.

The Edge of Heaven is the emotional conclusion to Wrong Side of Heaven.

One jilted love story.

Four converging paths.

A brand new forever.

Review

This was far from the ending that I was anticipating, but it was the kind of ending that this story needed…

Only moments after devouring Wrong Side of Heaven, book one in the Broken Wings Duet, I just knew that The Edge of Heaven was going to destroy me when I finally managed to get my hands on a copy. Let me just say that is exactly what happened and I am still left processing my feelings hours after finishing. My heart was ripped right out of my chest and torn to shreds by Gia Riley’s emotionally captivating words. I am still emotionally drained by the intense journey this story took me on and I am not ready nor willing to let these characters go. Although I know the story has come to an end there is still a part of me that wants more of these characters!

The Edge of Heaven will consume your soul and leave you crumpled up in the corner with that gut-wrenching feeling of pain in the pit of your stomach. This story will take readers on a rollercoaster of twists and turns AND I can’t forget to mention the abundance of tears and heartache you will experience. This is the kind of story that will test your limits readers, but TRUST me when I say that this WILL be one of the best books you will ever read!

Synopsis

Oscar night.

Rock star legend, Ashland Keys should be on top of the world, but the blond blue-eyed SoCal surfer is disillusioned with fame, done with drugs, bored with the groupies and sick of all the fake f*ckery.

A rising star, Fanny Bay is nominated for best original song in the same category as the Dirt Dogs band, but the novel redhead with the corkscrew curls and the slight Canadian accent would prefer to chart a course with a different destination.

Hollywood is not for her.

He’s full of regrets, darkness and secrets.

She’s full of hope and light and has mysteries of her own.

He’s her reserved hero.

She’s his gypsy rose.

He’s water. She’s fire. Together, they don’t make sense.

But he’s what she’s always wanted, and she just might be everything he needs.

Review

I have been reading books written by the incredibly talented Michelle Mankin ever since 2012 when I discovered her Brutal Strength series, which I have probably re-read over about ten times since. She is the kind of author that never disappoints with her captivating writing style that will hook readers in from start to finish.

Oceanside is the third book in the Rock Stars, Surf and Second Chances series. Although this story is considered a standalone I can’t help but recommend checking out the first two books in the series first because they are all amazing reads and sheds some light on to Fanny and Ash’s backstory. This is an intense story and it will certainly engulf your heart as the characters battle some truly heart wrenching obstacles to find happiness.

Since I do not want to give anything away about this book, I will leave you with this…I absolutely adored this story and cannot wait to see what is next in store for Michelle Mankin!

Synopsis

Life can feel like a cruel joke. I grew up poor and motherless, with a father who never got over his wife’s abandonment. But now he’s gone too, and I’m dead set on finding the woman who so carelessly tossed me aside when I was a baby.

I want revenge. And I’m going to get back at my mother any way that I can.

I change my name. Start my new life in college, and just happen to cross paths with the gorgeous, ultra-rich Rhett Montgomery. He’s immediately interested in me, not that I’m surprised.

You see, I planned it that way. I meant for him to find me. He’s the one connection to my mother, and I’m using him, so I can destroy her. But I didn’t plan on Rhett being so charming. Sweet. Sexy.

And I definitely didn’t plan on falling for him either…

Review

When Monica Murphy first announced her upcoming Damaged Hearts series I was so freaking excited because I have read and loved many of her past releases, but nothing could have prepared me for this story.

Her Defiant Heart is the kind of story that captures you whole body and soul right from the very beginning and holds on for dear life. This is not a story filled with love, hope and happiness, but rather a story fueled by revenge and hate. Revenge plays a crucial part in this series and I am anticipating that it will certainly grow from one book to the next.

Jensen is driven by revenge and it is directed towards her mother, the mother that abandoned her at a young age only to go off and raise another family with children who are not her own. That realization is a bitter pill to swallow and she is engulfed in rage. She devises a plan to get to her mother through Rhett Montgomery, but what she doesn’t anticipate is developing feelings for him. Suddenly, she must make a decision…to continue her plan…or to let it go and move on.

I devoured this story in only a few short hours and now I cannot wait to dive into His Wasted Hearts, book 2 in the Damaged Hearts series when it releases because I need to know what is next for Jensen and Rhett, especially after that intense ending!
