My Tease for this week comes from:

The Destiny of Violet & Luke
(The Coincidence #3)

by
Jessica Sorensen 

First - The Blurb:



Luke Price's life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.

Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents' unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it's hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can't stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.

Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can't seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they've never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .


Second - The Teaser:

A Tease from Violet's POV

"Violet," he groans, dragging his teeth across my bottom lip and gently nibbling on it. "I think... I think..." He starts to pull away.

"Don't stop." My voice sounds a little more pleading than I planned and starts to jerk me back to reality, but then he lets out this low growl and his lips literally smash into mine, so forcefully I swear to God I'm going to have a bruise.


A Tease from Luke's POV

Time slips by as the connection between us builds, along with the overwhelming emotions that are consuming me.

Controlling me. But in the end I move slowly because it's not about my control. It's all about her. Every movement, every breath, the way my heart beats fiercely inside my chest, is all because of her.

Violet owns me.


Like many of Jessica's books, The Destiny of Violet and Luke is filled with a roller-coaster of emotions. Both characters have very broken souls due to their pasts. However, as the walls they have built around themselves slowly begin to break down, they discover that life does have an upside.

Unfortunately, their story ends on a bit of a cliff hanger. I'm looking forward to reading the continuation in The Probability of Violet and Luke and then the conclusion in The Certainty of Violet and Luke.


My Rating: 5 out of 5

Breathe for Me
(Be for Me #1)
by
Natalie Anderson 




The last thing Chelsea Greene wants is to be rescued, but that’s exactly what happens when she’s caught wearing nothing but her swimsuit during a midnight emergency evacuation drill. Turns out her ‘hero’ is a former lifeguard who has no hesitation in offering the kiss of life. So not happening, right? 
But for emotionally chastened Chelsea, one touch changes everything. She discovers a desire to satisfy this arrogant, demanding tease. Unable to express her own fantasies, she finds unspeakable pleasure in serving his.

Xander Lawson exudes easy charm. He likes a woman unafraid to match his appetite for unfettered fun. He doesn’t do complicated or emotional. But the raw need emanating from fragile Chelsea compels him closer. He can’t resist spinning a sensual fantasy world around them. 
As passion spills outside their carefully selected boundaries, Xander learns Chelsea’s stronger than he first thought. But is she strong enough to handle the intensity he’s always kept hidden?

My Swoon for this week comes from:


Shatter
(True Believers #4)

by
Erin McCarthy 


First - The Blurb:



Kylie Warner prides herself on being optimistic, but after finding her best friend in bed with her boyfriend and flunking chemistry, her upbeat attitude has taken a dive. Even an impromptu hook-up with her sexy new chemistry tutor only brightens her mood slightly. After all, it’s not like she’ll ever see the tattooed scholar again…

While he’s a whiz at complex equations, Jonathon Kadisch has trouble when it comes to figuring out women. So when Kylie tells him that she’s pregnant after their night of passion, he’s at a complete loss. He’s prepared to be a good father—unlike his own deadbeat dad—but he’s less prepared to fall for the genuine and alluring blonde bearing his child.

With emotions running high, Kylie wonders if Jonathon’s devotion is out of growing love or looming obligation. And when heartbreak threatens to tear them apart, Jonathon will have to fight for the only girl who’s ever made him feel whole…


Second - The Swoon:

It was a delicious kiss, the kind that started slow and tentative then grew deeper and deeper until I needed to pull back and snag a breath. For a heartbeat, I stared at him, my mouth hovering over his, the light reflecting off his glasses so I couldn't read what was in his eyes, but he didn't give me enough time to speak or think any further. He put his hand on the back of my head and erased the space between us, and for some reason it mattered to me that he didn't pull me to him, he came to me.


Darwin / Jonathan is not your typical bad boy. In fact, he's kind of a nerd. Super smart, obsessed with his studies, he is totally unprepared for Kylie and the events which follow after a one night stand.

Kylie. I met Kylie in True (Book 1 of True Believers series). With a fun loving attitude towards life, she was always happy and enjoyed being with her friends. In Shatter, we see her in a different light. Struggling with a cheating boyfriend, her studies and the fact that all her friends are now in committed relationships, she suddenly finds herself alone and unsure of in which direction her life should be going.

Then, if things weren't complicated enough, she finds herself pregnant.

Fortunately for Kylie, Darwin / Jonathan turns out to be a true gentleman and accepts impending fatherhood with a positive attitude.

Of course, like with many relationships, things don't always run smooth and there are several ups and downs before Kylie and Jonathan finally get it right.

I enjoyed reading their story. If you like NA Contemporary, then this might be a series for you.

 My Rating: 5 out of 5

Waiting on Wednesday #6 ~ Frostfire (Kanin Chronicles #1) by Amanda Hocking




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m waiting on: 


Frostfire
(Kanin Chronicles #1)

by
Amanda Hocking 


Expected publication: January 6th, 2015 


Bryn Aven is an outcast among the Kanin, the most powerful of the troll tribes. Set apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who's determined to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royalty. She's not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden. But all her plans for the future are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero who she once loved – appears to be up to something dangerous, kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?



I loved the original Trylle series by Amanda, so naturally, I can't wait for the release of Frostfire.
And such a beautiful wintry cover too.

My Tease for this week comes from:

True
(True Believers #1)

by
Erin McCarthy


First - The Blurb:


When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.

Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t…

Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost.


Second - The Tease:

"Thank you," he murmured, a satisfied smile in place, before his mouth descended onto mine.

Then I couldn't see or think. I could only feel the press of his body against me, his breath a hot rush past my ear as his lips brushed over mine. It wasn't what I was expecting. It wasn't a determined or aggressive or erotic kiss. It was delicate, worshipful, teasing.



I picked up this book a while back when I was browsing the local bookstore. Captured by both the cover and the blurb, I felt I had to add it to my shelf. It has taken a little while for it to make its way to the top of my TBR pile but it finally made it.

Sooo... did I enjoy it? Yes. I did. Although Rory can be a little frustrating at times, she kind of grows on you after a while. And Tyler, although a little mysterious in the start, turns out to be one hot, sensitive, caring, dude. I loved that this couple got together. They definitely complement each other.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
