CRASH INTO YOU by Katie McGarry

 

crash into you
“It’s okay, Rachel. Go ahead.” He angles so that the tiger is closer to me.

 

I outline the tattoo, enjoying its beauty. “I love this one.”

In the beams of street light scattered into the dark bedroom by the slatted blinds, I watch as Isaiah’s eyes melt into silver. “It’s my favorite,” he says. “One day I’ll get a tattoo for you.”

Warmth explodes in my chest, in awe that he would mark himself for me. “You don’t have to.”

“I will.” His fingers trace my cheek and chills of pleasure run down my spine. “It’s what I do. Each tattoo represents the only happy memories I’ve had. And you, Rachel, you’re the happiest.”

Guest Post, Excerpt, & Giveaway: GABBY REVEALED by Amy Gregory

Gabby Revealed Cover copy

*The author is hosting a Rafflecopter Giveaway of signed copies of MIKE’S WAY BACK and GABBY REVEALED (one winner- US only)!

Book Info:

Title: Gabby Revealed (Finding Perfect #2)
Author: Amy Gregory
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 25, 2014

Book Blurb:

Gabby James didn’t have the idyllic childhood many in her little hometown of Renlend, Kansas had. High school was a living hell, but when she graduated she couldn’t bring herself to leave Renlend. The town was her prison, but her family’s bookstore, The Looking Glass, was her one true love. It was the place she could run to, and escape the prying eyes of the ones who taunted her.
Shane Compton was a literary agent in one of the most prestigious publishing houses in New York City. He found no greater rush than finding the next big talent, someone who could take the written word and turn it into an art form. In the span of one rude phone call Shane was drawn into the mystery of just who the fiery new author from Kansas was. When everyone else in the office refused to deal with her, Shane willingly accepted the challenge. There was no logic to the madness, but every time he had contact with her, she drove him wild.

Gabby tried every trick in the book to keep Shane at arm’s length, but he had made good on his promise to come to Kansas. He wanted to pull her out of anonymity, he wanted her in the public eye. Now here he stood, on the sidewalk in front her bookstore, and one look told her he was everything she was afraid he’d be. Too bad she was anything but who he thought she was.

Gabby quickly discovers Shane has more on his mind than just books and with a little help from an ornery matchmaker, he shows her a whole new life through her looking glass.

Book Info:

Title: Katie McGarry (Pushing the Limits #3)
Author: Katie McGarry
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Release Date: November 26, 2013
Format: Hardbound copy

Book Blurb:

From acclaimed author Katie McGarry comes an explosive new tale of a good girl with a reckless streak, a street-smart guy with nothing to lose, and a romance forged in the fast lane

The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life-that’s who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers…and she’s just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can’t get him out of her mind.

Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look.

But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they’ll go to save each other.

Review: OBSIDIAN by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Info:

Title: Obsidian (Lux #1)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Release Date: May 8, 2012
Format: eBook

Book Blurb:

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Title: Moonlight on My Mind
Author: Jennifer McQuiston
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: March 25, 2014

Book Blurb:

To ruin a man’s life once takes a regrettable mistake.To do so twice takes a woman like Julianne Baxter.
Eleven months ago, Julianne’s statement to the authorities wrongly implicated Patrick, the new Earl of Haversham, in his older brother’s death. The chit is as much trouble as her red hair suggests, and just as captivating. Now she has impetuously tracked him to the wilds of Scotland, insisting that he return home to face a murder charge and save his family from ruin. A clandestine wedding may be the only way to save her reputation—and his neck from the hangman’s noose.

Julianne has no objection to the match. More and more she’s convinced of Patrick’s innocence, though when it comes to igniting her passions, the man is all too guilty. And if they can only clear his name, a marriage made in haste could bring about the most extraordinary pleasure…

Top Ten Tuesday (20): Things on my Bookish Bucket List

d32cf-toptentuesday2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the gals at The Broke and the Bookish. For this week, here’s my… 

Top Ten Things on my Bookish Bucket List…

 

Make a dent in my TBR pile. This is one of my top priorities this year because that list just keeps getting longer and longer. One day of Top Ten Tuesday or Waiting on Wednesday and I’ve added more than a couple of books.

 

Write more reviews. I just want to spread the love for the books that I’ve enjoyed reading or fell in love with.

 

Meet and greet with Tahereh Mafi. Ms. Mafi is coming to Manila in April this year! Woot! ^_^ And I vow to be one of the first in line for her signing event. LOL.

 

Re-read Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series. I really, really want to re-read this series. So much. It hasn’t been 2 months since I’ve read the books but I’m really tempted to suspend my reading schedule of other books and re-read them.

 

Do something new for my blog. I want to keep my blog fresh so I’m starting to think of ways to change things up a bit or maybe introduce a new feature or just do something new aside from my usual posts.
(If you guys have suggestions on this, I would really, really love to hear them. ^___^)

HOSTAGE TO PLEASURE by Nalini Singh

hostage to pleasure
He haunts me. The sniper. In my dreams, he is a black shadow with his eye focused on the scope of a rifle. Sometimes, he puts down the weapon and walks toward me. Sometimes, he even touches me. But most times, he presses the trigger. And kills me.
From the encrypted personal files of Ashaya Aleine

It’s becoming an obsession–my fascination with the sniper. Today, in the lab, I felt his breath on my nape. I am a scientist, a being of logic and reason, but part of me is convinced that he was real, that I could have raised a hand and brushed my fingertips across his lips.
— From the encrypted personal files of Ashaya Aleine

I heard the sniper’s voice against my ear when I woke today. He whispered sensual promises so savage, I can hardly believe these thoughts come from some corner of my own psyche. And yet they must. Because, at the end, he called me prey. 
And told me to run.
— From the encrypted personal files of Ashaya Aleine
