Walk the Edge - cover

One moment of recklessness will change their worlds


Smart. Responsible. That’s seventeen-year-old Breanna’s role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyberbully’s line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas “Razor” Turner into her life.

Razor lives for the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, and good girls like Breanna just don’t belong. But when he learns she’s being blackmailed over a compromising picture of the two of them—a picture that turns one unexpected and beautiful moment into ugliness—he knows it’s time to step outside the rules.

And so they make a pact: he’ll help her track down her blackmailer, and in return she’ll help him seek answers to the mystery that’s haunted him—one that not even his club brothers have been willing to discuss. But the more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. And suddenly they’re both walking the edge of discovering who they really are, what they want, and where they’re going from here.

Special Excerpt:

“I’m here about your mother.” The asshole knows he has me when my eyes snap to his.

                  “She’s dead.” Like the other times I say the words, a part of me dies along with her.

This guy has green eyes and they soften like he’s apologetic. “I know. I’m sorry. I’ve received some new evidence that may help us discover what caused her death.”

Anger curls within my muscles and my jaw twitches. This overwhelming sense of insanity is what I fight daily. For years, I’ve heard the whispers from the gossips in town, felt the stares of the kids in class, and I’ve sensed the pity of the men in the Reign of Terror I claim as brothers. It’s all accumulated to a black, hissing doubt in my soul.

Suicide.

It’s what everyone in town says happened. It’s in every hushed conversation people have the moment I turn my back. It’s not just from the people I couldn’t give two shits about, but the people who I consider family.

I shove away those thoughts and focus on what my father and the club have told me—what I have chosen to believe. “My mother’s death was an accident.”

He’s shaking his head and I’m fresh out of patience. I’m not doing this. Not with him. Not with anyone. “I’m not interested.”

I push off the railing and I did out the keys to my motorcycle as I bound down the steps. The detective’s behind me. He has a slow steady stride and it irritates me that he follows across the yard and doesn’t stop coming as I swing my leg over my bike.

“What if I told you I don’t think it was an accident,” he says.

Odds are it wasn’t. Odds are every whispered taunt in my direction is true. That my father and the club drove Mom crazy, and I wasn’t enough of a reason for her to choose life.

To drown him out, I start the engine. This guy must be as suicidal as people say Mom was because he eases in front of my bike assuming I won’t run him down.

“Thomas,” he says.

I twist the handle to rev the engine in warning. He raises his chin like he’s finally pissed and his eyes narrow on me. “Razor.”

I let the bike idle. If he’s going to respect me by using my road name, I’ll respect him for a few seconds. “Leave me the fuck alone.”

Damn if the man doesn’t possess balls the size of Montana. He steps closer to me and drops a bomb. “I have reason to believe your mom was murdered.”

The One Thing Blog Tour

Hey everyone!

So I have another exciting review and chance to get an ARC for a blog tour.  This tour is for The One Thing by Briana Gaitan.  I got to read her first book The Last Thing and loved it!!  I was so excited to hear about this book coming out.

Anyway, let’s get started…

As always….  the book cover!!!

3ee202352ad46e28d9325f1430c5b529caa50ede

Synopsis:

When everything falls apart, he’s the one thing that holds me together.

Ginger Teague may seem like your typical Hollywood actress with the famous boyfriend, designer clothes, money, and hit TV show, but constantly being in the public eye has its downside.
People seem more interested in her chaotic relationship with her on again/ off again boyfriend than her acting career,and Ginger isn’t dealing with her new found fame in a way she always envisioned. She masks her unhappiness with too many parties and an unhealthy habit of binge drinking. As much as she wants love, men find her as a pretty amusement, not the type of girl you take home to mom and dad.

When she meets Caspian Norwood, they quickly begin a regimen of flirty emails.
He’s a struggling musician that doesn’t quite fit her idea of the perfect boyfriend.
He’s older, mysterious, cultured, knows exactly what to say and do in all the right situations, and Ginger can’t help falling for him. But the world is against them, pushing them apart, and it’s beginning to feel as if they are only meant to be friends.

5 STARS

Review:

       I don’t even know where to start with this book.  It was absolutely amazing!  I mean of course it is king to have romance.  It’s a love story.  I found it so interesting how Briana thought that the characters should have to figure who they really are, not who they want to be, before they could be truly happy with each other.  I have a read a lot of books,  but none of them have considered taking the plot in that angle.  It made The One Thing more interesting.

      While looking for themselves, Ginger and Caspian had to use their own strength to pull them out of the hard problems.  It just helped that they knew if one of them needed help, the other was there to give a little extra push.

      It also made me super happy that I got to see what was going on in Quinn and Chase’s lives also.  It just makes me smile to think about them having a forever relationship!

Hopefully I will be a presence in the world another time this week.

Tess was born an Edenite, but after the death of her scientist mother she decides to combat this inequality by joining a rebel group called Kudzu. Together they uncover a shocking government plot to carry out genocide in the Badlands using artifical intelligence. Unofrtunately, Tess has some complicated ties to the project that test her loyalty. Robots, renewable resources, and romance get tangled together as Tess risks her life to bring justice to Eden.

The Review:

       Parched was a very interesting read at first.  It took me a while to wrap m mind around the way that Georgia had imagined this dystopian place.  After I reached about the third or fourth chapter, it was easier.  As far as the characters go, I thought that the main characters were growing, changing, and learning through the extent of the novel.  Tess was probably my favorite though, (As cheesy as it sounds to have the main character be your favorite…)  I loved how while reading the book I kept seeing her try to have this tough exterior and act like nothing could hurt, while her human emotions continued to show through this wall.

      The plot was good too.  Upon starting to read it, I found that I just kept wanting to read and read and read.  Nothing could distract me from wanting to find out what was going to happen to Tess next.

About the Author:

Georgia was born in Sydney, Australia. Her BA in Communications (Media Arts & Production) saw her becoming active in the student movement and blow way too much money on making short films and music videos.

This also involved being in a band, the seminal electropop trio, Dead Dead Girls. She went on to become an Online Producer for a soapie called Home & Away, and Online Writer for Fremantle Media Australia.

In 2008 her first novel, She’s With The Band was published by Australia’s largest independent publisher, Allen & Unwin. She’s With The Band was released in the U.S. and the U.K. in 2011. It attracted five-star reviews.

Georgia has worked as a freelance journalist and copywriter for ten years. She is published in Cosmo, CLEO, Daily Life, Sunday Life, Girlfriend and more. She has attended writers’ residencies in Martha’s Vineyard and Portugal, and has also received grants for her work.

Georgia moved to from Sydney to New York in 2009 just for fun. Here, she performs improv, creates the award-winning SHO Sync app for Showtime and enjoys meeting new and interesting cheese platters. She writes from the New York Writers Room, which involves macaroons and many, many cups of tea.

Despite the fact Georgia writes and loves thinking about artificial intelligence, science and the future, she doesn’t own a smart phone and never learnt to drive. She lives in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Review of The Last Thing by Briana Gaitan

Yay!!  So it is finally my day to post a review.  I have never been so excited for a blog tour in my life!! I finished this book about a week ago and thought it was amazing.

Now that I finally get to share my joy with you, here is what I have been waiting for since I got the first email from Briana.

20140708-010402-3842475.jpg

Synopsis:

     Plagued by past mistakes in both love and life, Quinn Bardot is in a bad place. With nowhere else to turn, she escapes to LA clinging to the promise of a fresh start.

      Chase Crowley is known for being selfish and unbelievably persistent. All he’s ever wanted is to become a successful actor. But now that he is about to have it all, he finds that something is still missing. Money and fame isn’t what he expected.

      After a fervent encounter, the two of them are thrown into a situation that neither is prepared for. Can Quinn extinguish her fears and let Chase in? Can Chase learn to put someone else’s needs before his own?

      Last Thing is a novel all about love, Hollywood, and accepting what life throws at you even if it is the last thing you want. 

      (This is a New Adult Romance novel & contains language & adult situations. Not recommended for readers younger than 17)

            ***The Last Thing is a stand alone book with NO cliff hanger ending. It is book one in the series.***

 

My Rating:

 5 STARS

(Used the pink stars to match the cover)

My Review:

I really, absolutely loved this book!  There is no other way to describe it.  Most roman books are a hit and miss with me because the basic plot has been seen in so many other stories.  Briana wrote this book in such a way that I didn’t feel the need to put it down and start another one.

I really liked how all the loose ends weren’t tied off until the very end.  It made you have to finish it even if it wasn’t your favorite book.  I know for me at least, I don’t like leaving stuff unfinished or being let unsure about something.

Even the secondary characters are seen constantly throughout the book.  You get to see them develop along with Chase and Quinn.  I know that at times, for me at least, the secondary characters can be way more entertaining than the main characters.  Sometimes the author will give them their little moments to shine, and I feel like that is what Briana did.
