Book Review: Edge of Chaos

Edge of chaos (Love on the Edge #1) 
by Molly E. Lee

Edge of Chaos (Love on the Edge, #1)
Blake Caster has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with Justin for so long, she can’t tell what is normal anymore, and so she clings to the one thing that is solidly hers—her passion for extreme weather.

Three years into her Meteorology degree, Blake meets professional storm chaser, Dash Lexington, who is as gorgeous as he is daring. Instantly recognizing her passion and skills in analyzing weather data, he makes a spot for her on his tight-knit storm chasing team. Dash and Blake form a fast friendship and it forces her to realize just how toxic her relationship with Justin is. She can’t deny the lightning-worthy chemistry she has with Dash or how her heart stalls every time he gets too close to a tornado.

With each chase and the cherished moments with Dash, Blake discovers her own self-worth and gains the strength to end things with Justin for good. But he won’t go easily. As Blake tries to sever ties with one man, she fears she’ll lose the other to his dangerous obsession—and she doesn't know if she’ll be enough to save him from the impending storm that could end them all.

Expected publication: March 30th 2016

I'm so glad that I was one of the lucky ARCs winner, because otherwise this book would have sat on my TBR pile for who knows how long!
Molly didn't write just an fast growing romance, she also wrote an very different side of a relationship that you don't normally see in books. Or at least in my perspective I haven't seen it.

Blake Caster never knew what it meant to be appreciated, she never knew that the one thing she thought was right for her was in fact not. She gave up her dream college, she felt forced to stay in her hometown to satisfied her boyfriend's needs.  Now pursuing her career in her hometown, she keeps to herself from other until the handsome Dash Lexington storm chaser walks into her life.

Dash Lexington always had a purpose for chasing storms, now he's found a different purpose . . . Blake. He sees what she doesn't see and he wants to help her realizes what's she is truly missing. The two starts off as friends then leading to being the best of friends, will that lead into something more than just being best friends???

From one storm lover to another, I love this book!!!! I haven't ever thought about reading any storm chasers related books because that idea never occurred to me. What I really like was how Dash was so willingly to show Blake what she should deserve from a guy, it's out of the norm for her but for him that is how it should be.

Although I do wish there was more tornado scenes but it seem clear to me that Tornado season was just around the corner. I should expect more of Blake and Dash in future books and the stakes will/should be higher.

I give this 5 Cat Paws, I really enjoy this book, I love the elements LITERALLY and this is just a taste of what to come from Molly's writing.

Book Review: Savage

Savage by  Michell St. James


Savage (London Mob, #1)
***A new full-length series from the bestselling author of Ruthless, Fearless, and Lawless***

If I was Superman, Jenna was my Kryptonite.

Farrell Black is dirty, dangerous, and holds nothing sacred. Growing up on the mean streets of London, he clawed his way to the top of a criminal empire with nothing but sheer force of will and the determination to need no one.

Ever.

Then he met Jenna Carver, and all bets were off — until the day she walked out of his life without a backward glance.

Leaving him was the hardest thing she’d ever done.

As a kid, Jenna knew how people looked at her. Like she was stupid. Worthless. Poor. So she spent her life working to become someone else. Then she met Farrell Black, and their all-consuming passion blew a hole in everything she thought she knew about herself.

Until she was forced to make a terrible choice.

Now Jenna is back in London for her father's funeral, desperate to avoid the one man who can banish her hard-earned reason in favor of red-hot ecstasy. But when her father’s death is tied to an abuse of power at the highest levels, she has no choice but to ask Farrell for help.

As they work together to find answers to a puzzle that could have dangerous implications, desire threatens to undo them both — and forces Jenna to choose between keeping the secret of a lifetime and having the one man who can command her body and soul.

Honestly Michelle did a wonderful job capturing that London lifestyle but add a little mob and syndicate to it and its an whole different perspective of London. I still want to visit London one day.

The backstory of Jenna and Farrell is a very intense love story, although it appears neither of them wanted an commitment and Farrell was someone who couldn't be that guy to be committed to. But then something happen . . . something that changed the lives of Jenna and Farrell for Five Years.

Now Jenna must face the music, but can she face the man that she left five years ago harboring the biggest secret that changed her life and could possibly change his?

Everything about Farrell and Jenna draws you in, I've never quite read anything like Savage before with the intense fiery romance and the two worlds apart.

I give this an 5 Cat Paws, Savage is brilliant and captivating love story,  I truly cannot wait for the second and even the third book to come out. I'm riddling my head with ideas of what will happen next!

Here's a teaser on Savages taken from Michelle St. James facebook page,

Hide & Seek: A Bet Worth Making

Happy cover reveal day to Heather Hildenbrand!!!! 

If you have ever read A Risk Worth Taking and wished that Heather would write more in that genre, well you got your wish!!! 

What is A Bet Worth Making??


A Bet Worth Making is the second book of Grayson County Series

Jordan DeWalter has her future mapped out—build the most impressive architectural design portfolio in all of New England, and use it to one day open her own firm. But when her father unexpectedly passes away, her plans, and her heart, are broken. Now, if she wants the money once promised to her, she’ll have to return to the town that threw her family out over twenty years ago in order to get it. 

If there’s one thing Jordan despises more than small towns, it’s small town people. 

Casey Luck has spent his life skating by on charm and a devil-may-care attitude. Never one to take life too seriously, he’s kept secret his dream of building custom dirt bikes. Instead, he fills the role his family expects: tractor mechanic, farm handyman, comedic relief. But, deep down, Casey’s restless for something more. 

Then he meets his new roommate: Jordan. 

Their attraction is instant, but Jordan’s not fooled by the chemistry between them. When the summer is over, she’s out of here no matter what. In fact, she’s willing to bet on it. 

Will their undeniable connection be the push they both need to break free of their pasts, or will Jordan’s wager on their failure ruin the future for them both? 


So are you ready to see the cover????
