  button-excerpt 

 Shivering against him as she parted her lips to speak, Waverlee moaned as his tongue swept forward, stealing the opportunity to deepen their kiss. And holy moly, the man could kiss. And not just any old kiss either. It was the-steal-your-breath-I-can’t-live-without-his-touch-because-nothing-else-in-the-world-matters kind of kiss a girl spends her life dreaming about. Their tongues danced together for long minutes as everything else faded away. The people. The noise. Everything took a backseat to the fierce passion Shaw created with a simple touch of his mouth to hers. Forcing herself to find her voice when Shaw lifted his mouth from hers to take a deep breath, Waverlee flashed a furtive glance up at his darkened eyes. “Wow,” she breathed shakily, clutching handfuls of his light blue dress shirt in her fists as the world seemed to spin at warp speed, “I..I…don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like that before,” she whispered, the words catching in her throat as his finger swept against her lower lip. “Then you best hold on real tight to me, baby, ‘cause I’m just getting started,” he replied, dropping his head to steal another deep, wet kiss from her lips as he curved one big hand around her neck, wrapping her silky hair around his fist and tugging gently.

One More Night by Sarah O’Rourke
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Oh how our past shapes us...
Sexy, funny, sad, and scary all rolled into one short story. I hope you enjoy reading about our heroine pushing herself to the limits. But the is only so far we can push until we fall over! And now a bit about the story...

Waverlee has been supporting herself since her high school graduation, where her mom handed her a bag of personal belongings and said good luck! Luckily, Brad, the local bar owner, have her a job and advanced her pay so she could find a place to live. Three years later she is going to school for her degree and working two jobs. She doesn't have any free time. Add in a hot caveman that has decided she will be his and the sparks are flying. Can she survive one more night?

Favorite passages:
- It was a sky blue push-up and she knew it made her smallish B cups look more like a solid C cup.  Still not the huge boobs that men seemed to like, but nothing to sneeze at either.  She just hoped Shaw didn’t automatically realize she was trying to commit titty fraud. 
- “Oh, that fucker is just fine. Well, except for the black eye I gave him after they released him from the ER,”

I Heart Books Review


Repossess by Jennifer Foor
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Can the heart be repossessed??? 

Heart pounding romantic drama! You're never quite sure what may happen next. As with all exceptional stories there is an evil villain and even a few laugh out loud moments. Plus the definitions at the beginning of the chapters are hilarious!! And now a bit about the story...

Straight out of the blue collar version of Atlantic city this young family of five (four brothers and a sister) is thriving. Until one day Raimey's trust is broken. She flees to Las Vegas for four years only to repeat the same mistake: trusting a man. Now she is back home, her family is in shambles, and the POS (Crane) who made her run away the first time is determined to get her back.

Favorite passages:
- “Give me a break. I’m sure you’ve brought women here.”“No I haven’t. My mom doesn’t want to befriend hussies.”
- “...amidst tragedy there’s light at the end of the tunnel.”
- I wouldn’t do this if he didn’t smell like soap. I’m not that sorry.




Snippet:


Saturday. It’s usually a day spent reflecting back on a long week of dealing with local douchebags, making mediocre money at the shitty job I assumed would get my feet in the door for bigger and better things. Now it will require an existential amount of change and a few beers at the closest dive bar I happen upon.
The foul taste of betrayal lingers in my mouth, though it’s easy to disguise from the unknowing stranger driving the taxi away from the apartment. The stinging in my eyes is a surefire sign that I’ve been deceived. I’m the last to know.
Unfortunately, the sudden urge to hurt someone leaves me more vulnerable than I’m comfortable with. Crying is saved for when someone you care about dies. In this instance my boyfriend is very much alive, the telltale proof would be the enthusiasm he was displaying while ramming our other roommate in the nether regions.
Up. The. Ass.
Go figure.


It’s something I prefer to steer away from, mostly because the two times I tried it ended with the seeing of actual stars and a few days worth of explosive diarrhea. As far as I’m concerned it’s a do-not-enter zone.
The fact that I’m fighting the urge to scream tells me I’m out of my element. I’ve let my guard down, and in order to rectify this situation and remain in control a few things need to happen immediately.
Kill. Jeffery. James.
Okay, maybe not kill him, even though in this short ride I’ve at least fabricated eight different scenarios that would end his existence. Since doing all of them would land me in a federal penitentiary, I’m resolved to handle this with a bit of discreet revenge, or at least the way I see it fit.
His wallet was the only thing I was able to grab in my state of shock. I open up the leather bi-fold and see what I’m working with. One Visa Platinum card. A MasterCard under his company name. His driver’s license, a bankcard, and roughly a hundred bucks in small bills are inside of a full-size flap. “Driver, take me to the shops on the main strip please.”
If there’s one thing I hate more than gossip, it’s clichés, so I’m fully aware I’m acting like a woman scorn. Quickly, before it begins to ring again, I turn my phone to silent and utilize the data to access the Internet. A wicked grin strikes my face as I type in a well-known porn site. I follow the prompt to set up a premier account, and then copy the number on his company card into the required fields.
Still not satisfied that this will make a big enough stink, I proceed to shop for bondage apparatus. One self-standing sex swing. Thirteen gag balls. Three different sizes of men’s black leather chaps. A variety pack of standard horse whips. Ceiling and floor restraints. Lastly a case of handcuffs and a police approved taser, complete with extended length use. I make sure the shipping address is the office, and hope his unknowing secretary gets a good laugh before drawing attention to the latest order.
A short snicker escapes me when I fill in the payment information and finish the transaction.
As fun as it is while I’m doing it, I know this won’t help with the disgraceful ache I’m ashamed of admitting.


I’m not your average twenty-two year old female. Raised by four older brothers, I wasn’t taught etiquette, or how to primp. I’m a rebel, a force to be reckoned with, that has an occasional sensitive side I rarely show. I’ve also been told I’m a fun lay, when I don’t let my feelings cloud my judgment. It’s a bad habit. It pisses me off that I’ve never been enough for any man, but I’m not an idiot. Men cheat because they want to. It’s the excitement, the rush they get when they’re involved in something new. I’m the opposite of dainty. Maybe Jeffery wanted a prissy little thing he could push around, and we can both agree, I’ll never be that kind of lady.

The Art of Letting Go (A Happy Endings novella) by M.C. Brightly
Review by Theresa Esterline
Stars: 5

Just Let It Go!

In life we have two choices, to let her pain and hurt drag us down or to preserve and succeed no matter what obstacle is put in our path. I like to think I'll always chose the optimistic road, at least eventually. This story walks us thru a horrible childhood and to the letting go stage. And now a bit about the story...

Hartley doesn't think she can take it anymore, but she wakes up in a safe place. Some time later she meets Milo. She's only opened up to Jordan. Does she take the leap and trust another man?

Favorite passages:
- I can’t believe that I’m falling for a boy I know nothing about...
- “I want to continue. I need to let the pain and anger go. The only way for me to do that is to tell the story. Taking the power from them and giving it back to myself.”



All our lives we're taught not to talk to strangers and never to go anywhere with someone we don't know or trust. But what happens when that line between stranger and trusted adult is blurred?

In one day I had my heart broken and my entire life turned upside down all because I was naive enough to think this would never happen to me.

Now I lay here in this prison he's created for me and find myself saying, If only he had never kissed her...if only I had never decided to walk home...if only I never trusted him...I wouldn't be locked in this cold dark basement completely alone and wondering if this will be how my story ends?
