The Line That Break by J.M. Miller - Blog Tour - Review

The Line that Breaks Blog Tour BannerSynopsis
*This is the follow up to The Line That Binds*
While searching for answers involving Stockton Estate's stone well, Ben Shadows and LJ Wayde discover one truth: the curse is real.
Unfortunately, that truth has LJ facing the same fate that's been tied to her bloodline for generations. The curse has given her the ability to help others conquer their greatest weaknesses, but it comes with a torturous price. As the rush of helping people starts to outweigh the pain of the consequences, LJ moves toward acceptance. She considers it a gift and a possibility to make up for the way she treated people in her past.
Ben pushes on to find an end to the curse despite LJ's reluctance. With reasons linked to her Aunt Janine's memory loss, Ben fears the real consequences are far worse than LJ's current symptoms. His love for her drives his need to protect her, even if it means hiding the next piece of the well's mystery.
When LJ finds what Ben has kept secret, she may never forgive him.
Will he lose her heart before he can save her mind?

November, 1864
Tonight was the last night.
Dahlia pulled on her jacket and stepped into the darkness. The air nipped at her face and fingers, but she pushed on, knowing this would be the last night she knelt before the well.
The moon hovered low on the horizon, giving just enough light to guide her across the still property. Winter was close. Color had fallen from the trees and the sun was setting earlier every day. Travel would be harder now, harsher, making the possibility of finding a new home more difficult. Nevertheless, it wasn't enough to dissuade Dahlia from leaving. The only thing that worried her now was how the Stocktons would treat her servant mother after she had gone. Mr. Stockton had passed last month, which meant Charles, with some guidance from his mother, was now in charge of the estate.
Dahlia stopped in front of the well and gazed up to the mansion like she had every night for weeks. Noticing a dim light in the farthest of the upstairs windows, she crouched low to hide. It was Charles' office, not his and Sarah's bedroom. Unfortunately, Dahlia knew which bedroom was theirs most of all─it could've been hers. In the weeks following the wedding, she'd been called upon to help clean their house. Their room. Every time she had to change the blankets on their bed, it made her physically ill. Thoughts of their lovemaking charged her mind. They ripped at her heart every day and haunted her every night. But they also fueled her anger, and kept her coming back to the well.
Seeing no movement within the lit room, she decided to continue. She stayed low and twisted sideways to keep an eye on the window. Digging into her pocket, she removed a thin iron pick. Its rounded tip had been worn close to its base. Her palm gripped the cool metal and its grooves settled into the cuts already etched in her skin. She located the final area of stone then started to scratch.
Hours later, after the last letter was done and her hands were raw and bloody once more, Dahlia read the words aloud and rubbed her hands over the stones. She thought of him as she spoke. Thought of him lying in her bed. His lips caressing hers. His promise for forever.
This was her promise to him and she was certain it would last longer than his had.
It would surpass their lifetimes.
Letting the pick fall to the ground, Dahlia turned toward the house again. A silhouette stood at the window, darkened by the dim light at its back.
It was him.
She stared at his figure, knowing he was looking at her too. For one weakened moment, she longed to see his green eyes, taste the breath of his kiss, and feel the comfort of his arms again. Warm tears rolled over her icy cheeks, waking her from the spell.
He'd made his choice.
It wasn't her.
So she walked away from the well, leaving the darkened figure behind and never looking back.

Nikki's Review

5 stars!!

The Line That Breaks picks up about a month after the first book ends. Ben and LJ are still searching for answers on the curse of LJ's bloodline. Is there a way to break it? Will she have to live with it? Will she lose her mind before they find the answers? Well you have to read it to find out!

Ben and LJ's relationship continues to grow. We got to see the beginning of it in the first book, now we get to see it blossom in the second.
These are absolutely delightful characters. And I don't mean just the H and h but the secondary characters as well. There are funny ones, sweet ones, serious ones and of course no book is complete without conniving ones.  I wish I had friends like Spaz and Izzy.

I was very sad to see Ben and LJ's story come to a close. I really enjoyed these characters. I think the author did a fabulous job of bringing their story to life in 2 books. I'm going to miss them. I would have loved to have had more but I'm glad the author didn't draw their story out with useless filler for the sole purpose of putting out another book.  I'm going to miss the beauty that is Stockton Estate with its sweeping grounds, hidden passages, troubled past, and promising future. The author truly paints a vivid picture. I enjoyed every twist and turn in the story. Some I was able to guess, some I was not, which I thought was great because when I thought I knew what was going to happen next, TWIST, I did not. When I thought I had everything figured out, TURN, I did not. Its a very engaging read. I found myself wanting to crawl into the story and help Ben and LJ. The ONLY complaint I have for the book is that LJ may have been a bit too stubborn for too long. I mean, I understand why she was, but for me, it just lasted a smidge too long. Otherwise, truly fabulous book! I highly recommend it! If you enjoyed the first, you are going to love this one! Bravo Ms. Miller!! I can't wait to see what you put out in the future.

Behind His Eyes - Truth by Aleatha Romig - Blog Tour - Review

Homemade Apple Regular


BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH is the second of CONSEQUENCES SERIES three reading companions, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aleatha Romig. It is recommended to be read after completing all of the CONSEQUENCES SERIES: Consequences, Truth, and Convicted. It is not a standalone book and should not be read as such.

This reading companion explores the thoughts and motivations of Anthony Rawlings and his struggle to accept the truth behind the consequences. It is not intended as a total rewrite of TRUTH, but meant to enhance the reader’s understanding. BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH contains significant scenes from the novel TRUTH, as experienced from Anthony’s point of view. It also contains never before read, behind the scenes information, a glossary of the characters, and a timeline which grows from Consequences to include the array of new characters and revelations found in the pages of Truth.

BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH is the continued journey inside the mind of the man who supplied and survived the consequences. This companion allows readers the opportunity to witness first hand as Anthony’s world changes forever. His rules and control begin to slip away, threatened by the most unlikely foes—something completely unfamiliar.

Can something as pure as love and forgiveness wreak havoc on his well-planned existence?

BEHIND HIS EYES TRUTH, because there is more to learn about a man who:

Once upon a time, signed a napkin that he knew was a contract. As an esteemed businessman, he forgot one very important rule—he forgot to read the fine print. It wasn’t an acquisition to own another person as he’d previously assumed. It was an agreement to acquire a soul.

—Aleatha Romig, CONVICTED


Continue the long and painful acquisition, as the TRUTH becomes evident, from Behind His Eyes! 

Streetwear Regular
Glancing at the numerous pictures from his years of surveillance, Tony wondered if he and Claire had come full circle. Would it be like this again? Would his only connection to her be through this new investigator? Would he only see Claire in two dimensions? Tony searched for their contract, the beginning of their personal journey together. He knew it wouldn’t be that easy again. If he were to get her back to Iowa and into his life, it wouldn’t be because of a signature on a napkin.
Then he shook his head. He didn’t want her back, did he? Hell, the lack of sleep was making him sentimental. He stopped his search. The damn contract was no longer valid; it never had been—legally. Pushing the box back into its hideaway, he contemplated throwing it all away. Having her back wasn’t his goal; learning her location was. She had no right to disappear.
With the necklace in his hand, Tony settled upon the soft leather sofa in front of his fireplace. If Phillip Roach were correct, in a few moments he’d hear the voice that used to fill his suite and his house. When her voice came through his phone, Tony wanted to feel her presence. He imagined the sound as he looked up at her wedding portrait and saw the emerald green that haunted his dreams. What did he want to hear? He wanted to know she was safe and unharmed. He wanted to know where she was, and he also wanted to bring her back to Iowa—because that was where she belonged.
It didn’t make sense. To the world she was the woman who tried to kill him. To Tony she was more than that. The past twenty hours had proven it. She was his drug. Claire Nichols ran through his system like ecstasy, sending him on otherwise unobtainable highs. He reasoned that lows followed highs, and she’d given him those, too; they’d given them to each other. Nevertheless, without the right stimulant, the euphoria could never again be achieved. Whether it was elation or misery, neither would be obtainable without the exhilarating potency of Claire. He didn’t want an empty envelope. He wanted her. Nathaniel was wrong: Claire wasn’t gone; she was just misplaced.
For the last twenty-four hours, his entire being had surged with anticipation. Claire may not understand it—hell, Tony didn’t understand it, but he couldn’t deny it. Now that she was gone, he needed her back in his life, and he would have her.

 5 AMAZING Stars!!!

I'm not sure I'm able to adequately describe how much I LOVE not only this book but this entire series, so bear with me. Sorry if I start to ramble :)

Like most readers, I too had a back and forth relationship with Tony. I liked him, I hated him, and I even grew to love him. At one point I thought that I was going to have to reconsider everything I felt for Tony but nobody is perfect and Tony is no exception. I love him despite his flaws. I've seen readers say that they don't see how Claire could forgive Tony for the things he's done to her in the past. Well we got to see Claire's thoughts in Truth. In Behind His Eyes Truth, we see exactly what Tony went through. His inner turmoil, how hard he worked at controlling his rage, how much he values his friendships with those closest to him.
I knew this book was going to be good because, lets face it, all the others are. But what I didn't expect was how deep we were going to go into all that is Anthony Rawlings. Its not just Tony's thoughts during certain scenes we get to see, but we get a true understanding of what motivated Tony to take the actions that he did. And then there are scenes that we didn't get to read about when we read Truth. We knew from all the other books that Tony is a master manipulator but we never knew for sure how deep his manipulation went with certain things. But even with all that aside, we see the depth of Tony's love for Claire. Sure we knew from the previous books that he loves her, but now we know the lengths he will go to ensure her happiness. We see a side of Tony that I wasn't entirely sure existed; insecurity. Tony was usually the picture of confidence but under his facade, he wasn't always confident with some of his decisions. The mighty Anthony Rawlings has insecurities, who knew? There are many, many sides that we never new existed until now.

Random thing I loved in the book was a quote at the beginning of a chapter from one of my favorite tv shows, The Blacklist. I know it really doesn't say anything to someone reading this review, but I loved it nonetheless and it went perfectly with the chapter.

All in all, the book was beyond expectations. It brought out old feelings and created new ones. Its not simply a retelling of Truth. It gives us sooo much more. More than we even knew we wanted but are so glad that we got. Truth is my favorite book of the original series and so far BHE Truth is my favorite of the companion novellas. Ms. Romig had done a fabulous job in giving us the previously unseen parts of Anthony Rawlings. She has once again proved why she is one of my favorite authors. Now I must find something to do with myself until the next book comes out. Oh, can I just throw it out there that I'm all for books that are all Tony, all the time? Tony is one of my top book boyfriends and it sure shocks people when I say that but its the TRUTH. ;)

Also, this is not a standalone. Before you read it, make sure you've read the previous 4 books.

Fight or Fall by Anne Leigh - Cover Reveal

Author: Anne Leigh
Cover: Okay Creations
Release date: 03/20/2014

Add to Goodreads

A disgraced athlete.

A tortured soul.

A man betrayed.

This is NOT your typical fighter story.

In this arena where fame and glory are at stake.

One man seeks to find the humanity he once possessed.

He fights not for honor but for redemption.

He lives by these rules.





For love.

Warning: This book is intended for readers 17 and older due to sexual situations and mature language.

Shutting off the shower, I stepped out of the stall, grabbed the blue towel, and walked towards the metal locker. Since one fight was scheduled per month and most likely only one fighter would be returning to the locker room – walking and breathing on his own anyways, I had no problems letting it all hang out while getting ready for the party that the winner was required to attend. I’d rather go home and catch up some sleep so I can train again tomorrow, but I guess I had signed up for this. I’d rather be at a party than at a hospital any time of the day.

Before reaching the locker, I suddenly felt tired. I dropped the towel on the bench facing the locker and sat. The clock on the wall showed 9:48. I had twelve minutes to get ready and meet the high-falluting assholes who were betting for me and against me. I wrapped my arms around my neck and bent my head down.

When did my life get reduced to this? How could I mess up everything? How could I do that to him, to her, to them?

Lost in my own thoughts, I barely heard the gasp from behind me. Barely. Who would be here? Everyone who’s anyone would be busy mingling and drinking their overpriced champagne while they gloated about the fight. I gave them a hell of a show. I knew they’d be talking about it.

“Sorry…” her voice came out as a shocked whisper.

I twisted my body around, facing the door.

Instead of hightailing it out of here, she slowly walked towards where I was sitting, her cheeks turning pinker with each step, her eyes directed at my head. I bet she just figured out that the only thing between me and the bench was the towel, no other articles of clothing present. Standing a few steps away, she stopped in her tracks, her hands fiddling with the small bag she had on her right shoulder, and her face almost full-on red now.

Her cheeks burned and she turned her head to the right, avoiding any more visuals of my current state of glory. “Umm…umm…I think I better go. I’ll see you upstairs.”

She turned on her heels, the quick movement causing her right shoe to get caught on the back of her other shoe. I jumped over the bench and caught her upper body before she completely fell on the floor, encasing her in my arms. Just as I was about to help her up, I felt a stirring down below. Fuck. I was completely naked still. Well, it wasn’t my fault that she was trespassing in the Men’s Shower Room.

Her head was still downcast, her hands were caught in between my grip. She slowly turned her face up towards me. Her gray eyes, the color of stormy clouds, looked worried. “Did he hurt you?”

I pulled us up to a standing position, ensuring that I had a solid hold on her waist.

“He’s the one saying hi to the doctors right now,” I said, trying to collect my thoughts and make sense of what was happening right now. She was the only woman who could make my blood boil and my veins freeze all at the same time when she rained insults on me.

She was tall for a woman, but at 6’4” I was still almost a head taller than her. I lowered my gaze to hers, and she bit the inside of her cheek, a small frown forming on her face. “I saw that brutal punch to your side… You need to get checked, you might have internal bleeding...the kidney’s a tender organ.”

My dick was a tender organ, but now it was becoming hard as fuck.
