 Changing Course
Prologue
Brett

"Sarah, don't do this. Damn it! Stay with me." I reach over and gently brush the blood-soaked hair off her forehead.
Even in this horrific moment, I'm in absolute awe of how beautiful she looks. Bleeding and broken, unmoving in my arms, she is still the most mesmerizing woman I have ever laid eyes on. Deep down, I know this is just the husk of my wife. My Sarah would never have done this to herself. More importantly, she would have never done this to me. Maybe it takes this level of madness, but I finally realize that I have lost her completely.
Whether she lives or dies, Sarah is gone. This is not the woman who made me laugh more in seven years than the rest of my life combined. She definitely isn't the woman I spent years planning a future with, a future that now no longer exists. I feel a heavy weight in my chest at my silent confession, but oddly enough, I also feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. I have watched this woman disintegrate in front of my eyes for almost seven months. Every day, losing her a little more. The light in her eyes fading, while piece by piece and bit by bit, she lost grip of reality. Mentally, emotionally, and now physically, she's left me.
My Sarah died seven months ago on her way home from dinner, and I will never see her walk back into my life. Suddenly, I can't breathe. I'm terrified—and not only because Sarah might finally succeed in taking her own life. I'm paralyzed by the realization that my life is spiraling down in a free fall headed straight for misery, and the only thing I can think to do is anchor myself to this dying woman. I love Sarah with all my heart, but I am not clinging to the woman in my arms. Rather, I’m clinging to the life I thought we were going to have together. I have to accept that she isn't there anymore. Her heart might still be beating, but the bloody, confused, emotionally lost woman I am holding now is only the shell of my first and only love.
"Where the fuck is that ambulance?!" I yell as loud as my cracking voice will allow. Stroking the little bit of her unmarred skin I'm able to reach, I whisper in her ear, "Hang on, baby." Then I repeat the one sentence I have said almost daily since the tragic event that stole her from me. Maybe I say it for her, maybe just for me, but I know that it’s the biggest lie I have ever uttered. "Just hang on, baby. It’s all going to be okay."

Review of Hooked by Iris Parker



I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. 

In this book we meet Emilia and Simon. Years ago Simon's dad married Emilia's mom. Emilia knew nothing about Simon until one summer he came to stay with them that summer changed them both. Simon was constantly picking and putting Emilia down made her feel insecure about herself and started ugly rumors that he thought would hurt her. Emilia was just looking to be nice to Simon but after that first summer she was more cautious and the after the second she wanted nothing to do with him. Now she is about to loose her rec center and at the last moment she gets a generous benefactor. Little does she know it is Simon and she doesn't know what he wants this time but in the 13 years since she last saw him she has never forgot the lessons he taught her about putting any kind of trust in him. 

Simon knows he screwed up all those years ago with Emilia but he is back to get if nothing more her forgiveness. She is the one person he can not forget and will do anything to make it up to her including giving her money for the rec center and taking all the grief she will dish his way. There is something about her there has always been something about her that pulls in in and makes him want to be better for her. 

This story is about love, forgiveness, and finding the way to let go of the past to make something meaningful in the future. This story has its twists and turns in it. It will draw you in and keep you hooked from beginning to the end. The only problem I had with this story is the journal like notes that the author adds in that are from Simon. They don't really make sense at times and you aren't sure if they are from Simon or Emilia. Over all it is a good story and I would recommend it.

Review of Step Beast by Selena Kitt





I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.

In this book we meet Mathilda (tilly to her friends) Conrad Beeston III or Beast to everyone who knows him. Beast has been gone for years and Tilly believes the only things that has brought him back is the fact that her mother is dying. After loosing his mother when he was young and his father to suicide Tilly believes that Beast looks at her mom as the only family he has left. Tilly knows she has really strong feelings for Beast if only she could get him to see it too.

Beast is out of the military and here for a reason but won't talk to anyone about it. Tilly keeps trying to but into his business and the more he pushes her the more she pushes back. He wants to tell her everything but there is a part of him that will always keep her safe.

There is a great push and pull dynamic to this book. There are a lot of family secrets going on as well. Like why is Beast back? What made him leave so suddenly all those years ago? Why does Tilly's mom always seem to be pushing her aside? This is an amazing book that will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

Blurb

From the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a new forbidden STANDALONE romance.

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who’d been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I’d be moving into her family’s guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I’d accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since the one wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. Only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.

Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
