One Final Breath by L.K Collins

Review of One Final Breath by LK Collins

Reviewed by Cee Cee Houston

Okay, I’ll admit it. After having read the blurb for this book, I was both intrigued and dismayed. A love story without a HEA. Who does that or reads it. Remember Love Story the movie. I went into this expecting to have much the same premise.

Thankfully, I was wrong.

But, oh my God. Just the prologue had me in tears. Faye lost her husband, and the man whom she thought was her soulmate to cancer. One year later a stranger buys her a coffee at her local Starbucks because she forgot her wallet. In payment he asks her to pay it forward. Faye thinks she’ll never see him again. Even though she was drawn to him from the moment they met. But, how wrong she is. Thane, is the father of her six year old son’s best friend. They keep meeting and finally give in to the attraction.  Oh, how I loved this story. So, different from the norm and not quite what I was expecting from LK after having read Sexual Encounters a few weeks ago. But, it’s so uplifting and emotional, and then ending had me in tears too. I love it, I love it.

 One life.

One choice.

One love.

Sometimes it’s all we get and one moment could

change it all.

I hate the number one—it haunts me; my every

waking moment is a constant reminder of what I lost.

One day, I met a guy and I fell in love. 

 

He asked me one question…I said yes. 

Our life was perfect…until one day everything

changed.

I watched him slowly slip and fade away. 

The one person I loved, my best friend, my

partner, my everything, was slowly dying right in front of my eyes.

The doctors said he had one year left; he only

lasted one month.

As I held on to his hand, he took one final

breath and slipped from this world.

Leaving me; one woman, one broken heart, one

child to show the world to…all alone.

This is my story about the power of one…

I’m not sure what it is about him, but for some reason since we

met, he’s consumed my thoughts. He takes the pain away—he makes me feel sane—he

makes me feel like there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel I’ve been

living in for so long.

Lost and Found by K.L Donn

Wow, when we first met Ace way back in Owned by Dominic he seemed like just another guy employed by Creed Black. But we find out about this book that this is a complex and caring man. He has a complicated relationship with his cousin, Nick whom he looks on as more of a brother. When the love, they love together or not at all.

Snow has been dumped battered and bloodied in a snow storm. Left for dead but found but Ace and Nick, the sheriff of Golden. B.C. She has no memory of what happened to her, and slowly she falls for these two hot and sexy protective men. The love and trust these characters display carries the story. It’s not just a menage book about sex and little else. There’s passion, there’s secrets, there’s a mystery to be solved… but most of all, there is LOVE.
But all in not well, in this pretty little town. An evil lurks here and is stalking them. Who or what will be the deciding factor? Good or bad. Life or death. Hate… or LOVE ever after.
Even though this is the 3 in the series, it’s not necessary to have read them first. It stands easily and well on its own.
Loved this book and highly recommend it.

The Bartender by Piper Rayne

From the moment I saw an ad for this book on Facebook, I knew I wanted to read it. That cheeky smile on the cover model’s face. The twinkle in his eye. It called to me. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover? Well, so not true for this one. Cole is sweet and sexy, but he did a bad, bad thing years before he knew Whitney, and unbeknownst to him, it had far reaching consequences. Consequences that caused Whit to instantly hate him once she finds out that the sexy bartender she met one night is THAT guy.
But, love has to have it’s way. They’re brought together, unwillingly on Whit’s part by her best friend’s impending nuptials. Tahlia is marrying Cole’s brother Chase, and he and Whit are asked to help out by reviewing venues. Whit starts to see a new side of Cole, one she didn’t realize he had and that she likes… a lot. But, then the one night something happens. Can Cole convince her he’s not THAT guy anymore. Or will Whit walk away-forever.
I thoroughly recommend this book. It’s fast, it’s funny. It’ll make you swoon and then mad in equal portions. Pick up your copy today. You won’t regret it.

Title: Pieces of Me

Author: Shiloh Walker | @shilohwalker

Genre: Romantic Thriller

Nobody knows that better than Shadow Harper. It seemed like a

dream come true when a rich, suave older man noticed her during her second year

of college. Stefan Stockman seemed to love her obsessively. He came into her

life and swept her off her feet, seduced her, married her…and then slowly,

eventually, that dream come true became a living nightmare.

 

Now, three years after she finally escaped him, she’s trying to

put her life back together. Haunted by memories, struggling with post-traumatic

stress, she spends most of her time locked away in her home on Pawley’s Island,

a small town on the South Carolina coast. Her rare moments of joy come from her

trips to the nearby beach.

 

She compulsively checks the locks on her doors, makes sure she has

her cell phones—five of them—and if she misses something on her schedule, it

throws her into a panic.

 

When she accidentally leaves a sketchbook on the beach, an anxiety

attack seems imminent. Her art has become her salvation, her sanity, and losing

even one sketch is like losing a piece of her soul. When she returns to hunt

for the sketchbook, already fearing it’s gone for good, she’s surprised to find

it still sitting there, saved by a sexy fellow beach lover— the mysterious

Dillian Jenkins.

 

He’s brash, bold, brutally handsome…and gentle. He’s the exact

opposite of the man who’d tormented her for years, and Shadow finds herself

slowly, almost reluctantly, falling for him. Even obsessing over him.

 

When her ex-husband once again intrudes on the happiness she’s

finally discovering, Shadow turns to Dillian. But will she find shelter

there…or another betrayal?

 

Obsession can be deadly …

 

 

 

 Shiloh Walker is an award-winning writer…yes, really! 

She’s also a mom, a wife, a reader and she pretends to be an amateur

photographer.  She published her first book in 2003. Her latest suspense,

The Right Kind of Trouble, released in August 2016 from St. Martins.

 

She writes romantic suspense

and contemporary romance, and urban fantasy under the name, J.C. Daniels.

Stryker

 

 

 

 

I’m a drifter. 

 

 

A man born to ride through this world alone.

 

 

There used to be a time when I thought I was the rescuing type. I enlisted in the Marines and made it my duty—I was going to save lives.

 

 

I was going to be a true American hero.

 

 

But God had another plan.

 

 

Or maybe Satan did.

 

 

For everything I touch finds mortality.

 

 

I’m no hero.

 

 

I’m nothing.

 

 

I’m a veteran biker, a former nomad who survived war only to live in hell.

 

 

Now I ride with the Satan’s Knights of Brooklyn and I’m drifting into a different kind of chaos.

 

 

The kind that revolves around a pretty girl with intoxicating green eyes.

 

 

A girl who has the power to turn me inside out.

 

 

A girl who doesn’t need anyone to rescue her because she’s her own savior.

 

 

Until she’s not.

 

 

But a man plagued by war and the devil inside him can never be her hero.

 

 

 

 

Gina Spinelli

 

 

 

 

 

Strong. Independent. Fierce. 

 

 

They are the three things I strived to be. 

 

 

But sometimes being successful can be lonely. 

 

 

Sometimes a girl just wants to be a girl and have someone take care of her. 

 

 

Maybe even love her. 

 

 

Sometimes the strong become vulnerable. 

 

 

Or worse, the victor becomes the victim. 

 

 

Sometimes we lose control or in my case it’s stripped from you. 

 

 

Defeated. Broken. Haunted. 

 

 

They are the three things I have become. 

 

 

In my darkest hour I admit defeat. 

 

 

In my darkest hour I need one person. 

 

 

I need him. 

 

 

Stryker.

Excerpt – “The ride”: Drifter – A Nomad Series Novel Book One © Copyright All Rights Reserved 2016

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That fucking skirt she’s wearing hugs her curves, leaving little to the imagination, and while the view is fucking amazing, she couldn’t be dressed any worse for the ride on the back of my bike. She knew it too and before she followed me out the front door of the swanky steakhouse, she sashayed those hips of hers to the bar. She asked the bartender for a steak knife, handed it to me and asked me to do what every motherfucker in the joint wanted to do—cut the skirt. I traded the serrated blade of the steak knife for the sharp blade I kept in my back pocket and sliced through the stitch behind her knees, extending the slit up the back of the skirt so she could straddle my bike. I’d tear the fucking thing off when it came time for her to straddle me, and just for kicks, maybe I’d cut it off her because fuck me, cutting through the stitching of her skirt had me hard as a rock.

 

 

 

 

It took every ounce of control I could muster not to let my hands travel under that skirt and sink my fingers deep into her ass cheeks. Instead, I kept my hands on her hips, spun her around and stared up into her eyes. They might be my favorite part of her. After spending most of my time with her fighting not to take in every inch of her body, allowing myself only glimpses so I wouldn’t be distracted by her curves, I became pretty fucking hooked on those eyes. They were a bewitching shade of green.

 

 

 

 

So fucking rare.

 

 

 

 

So fucking unique.

 

 

 

 

So damn pretty.

 

 

 

 

They had the power to put me in a trance just like her hips that swayed back and forth like a pendulum.

 

 

 

 

Fuck—everything about her made me want to forget who I am and learn who she is.

 

 

 

 

The roar of my engine purrs, distracting me from her perfect face and I see the parking attendant pull my bike up in front of us. I hand him the ticket, pay the fee and turn around to Gina, watching as she bites down on her plump bottom lip and assesses my Harley.

 

 

 

 

Throwing a leg over my bike, I grab the helmet dangling off one of the handlebars and offer it to her.

 

 

 

 

“Still want that ride?” I ask when she doesn’t take the helmet and continues to stare at the bike. I don’t see any hesitation when her eyes lock with mine and a smile spreads across her sensual mouth—a mouth made for a man to dream of when he’s lonely.

 

 

 

 

“You bet your ass I do,” she says, closing the distance between us as she braces her hand on my shoulder and straddles the bike. She fits the helmet to her head and adjusts the chin strap as I glance down at her five-inch spiked heels and shake my head. She didn’t belong on the back of a motorcycle, she belonged sprawled out on leather seats in the back of a limo with the divider rolled up and me between her legs.  

 

 

 

 

We were night and day. She was beauty and class and I was nothing, a shell of a man left broken and tormented from war, fresh out of prison, an outlaw—yet, here we were and neither of us seemed to give a fuck.
