The Boyfriend Bookmark : ★★★

He’s in for the fight of his life . . .  Army captain Trent Davila loved his wife, Laura, and their two beautiful children. But when he almost lost his life in combat, something inside him died. He couldn’t explain the emptiness he felt or bridge the growing distance between him and his family-so he deployed again. And again. And again…until his marriage reached its breaking point. Now, with everything on the line, Trent has one last chance to prove to his wife that he can be the man she needs …if she’ll have him

. . . to win back his only love. Laura is blindsided when Trent returns home. Time and again, he chose his men over his family, and she’s just beginning to put the pieces of her shattered heart back together. But when Trent faces a court martial on false charges, only Laura can save him. What begins as an act of kindness to protect his career inflames a desire she thought long buried-and a love that won’t be denied. But can she trust that this time he’s back to stay?

Stephanie: ★★★

This book broke me. Broke me badly. I knew less than half way through it, Back To You was going to leave a mark. The pain, anger, hurt and all things that go along with the content of this book all bound together by love, it will leave a lasting impression on the soul. I know it did for me.

Laura has been at home in Texas for years, raising two kids and keeping a home and full time job while her husband was over seas on tour after tour in the military. Laura hasn’t had it easy, but she has always taken comfort that he will return from the war. But when push comes to shove and she discovers that he has been requesting to be deployed time after time, everything in her world shifts. She just can’t do it anymore. Her heart can’t take anymore.

But it is always important to remember, there are two sides to every story. And this story of a soldier is heartbreaking and absolutely touchingly beautiful. He loves his wife, he loves his kids. But they are not what he knows. Trent knows war. He knows the military. He knows those who serve with him. His family, his wife… he doesn’t know how to be, how to act, what to do around them. But rather than fighting through his marriage, it has always been easier to go back to war. That he knows.

But now faced with some shady members of the military, he is forced back into a reality that he knows nothing about. But he won’t give up on their marriage. He won’t sign the papers and he will not be court marshalled. It’s a lot to take in, but he would rather lose his life than the love of it. But now Trent has to make some big changes, more on the inside. He has to learn to let Laura in when he has kept her out for so long.

But will too many deployments and too much hurt from all the years gone by be too much to save their marriage? Is it broken beyond repair or can they find their way back to one another without anymore hurt or anxiety to separate them?

As I said, I knew before the halfway point that this book was going to stick with me. Every man in my life has been in the military and I couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them. Some have fought in wars, some have not, but it is with great respect for this country that they have served. So I knew this one was going to get to me. And it did. It is a look at what the military does not only to one’s soul, but to everyone around them. How such a noble gesture of serving in the military can bring such pain and heartache to those who wait back home.

This is a tragically beautiful look inside the lives of just one family and it tore me up. But it did more than that, it pieced back together my heart right along with the characters. It restored faith in the commitment made by Trent and Laura. It was so full of emotion and turmoil and just when you think that finding your way home again isn’t enough, you find the strength to fight harder.

Trent is just one of thousands of men (and women) who are faced with adjusting back to a normal that you are not used to. When war is a better option because it is comfortable, this is a gentle reminder that even though it may not be comfortable, it is your life and those you carry in your heart back home that have helped you face the day on the battlefield.

I absolutely adored this book. There is so much strength and courage in the every day that we take for granted. Back To You is a look into how it feels on the other side of the same situation. Perspectives are different, but love is the same.

T.L Smith – Sasha’s Dilemma

This is not a HEA
LOVE— it’s a common word that people take for granted. As for me, Sasha Adams, I have seen that love isn’t everything, though sometimes it’s meant to be. But to be honest, I never wanted it. That has been my plan for as long as I can remember. The only person I ever wanted to love is my sister Lola. But then I met not one no, not even two— but three beautiful men.
Dylan, the doctor, had his head screwed on tight. Josh, well, he was a tattooed sex machine playboy. Then there was Brax, the rock star. It was clear they all wanted my heart, but I wouldn’t give it to any of them willingly.

Unwillingly, I fell hard, but there was a part of me that knew he could destroy me. So I refused to give him all of me, and now he’s returned and determined to win me back. But it’s too late, isn’t it?

Jaci J – The Ride

Tank
It had always been about the ride. My love for the ride is what fuels me. It’s what drives me. That freedom of the open road in front of you with not a damn thing holding you back is what I crave.
I don’t need much, shit I don’t want much out of life. My bike, my club, my brothers, my money, and occasionally a warm and willing women in my bed is what I need.
I liked my life that way. It works for me. I enjoyed the familiarity of it. But slowly things were changing. I can feel that change in the air. It’s everywhere. There comes a point in your life where things just change. No matter how much I fight it. No matter how hard I hang on, it’s changing. Whether by choice or not. For better or
worse it gets turned upside down on its fucking head. The moment I laid eyes on her shit changed forever. Things were on their way to changing, but fuck if she didn’t tip that shit right over. She hit me like a blow to the chest crippling me. Rocking my world. That girl completely blew everything I thought I wanted to shit. She took me on a wild ride and for better or worse she changed everything for me.
Lil
The loud rumble of pipes fills me with a sense of home. Deep gruff male voices remind me of nights spent sitting at the bar listening to the guys tell me stories. The smell of leather, grease, and smoke brings back memories of hot summer days spent around the compound. The sound of classic rock makes me want to dance. A group of rough and mean men makes me smile. Seeing a beautifully crafted bike makes my heart beat a little faster. A man in leather always makes me hot. The feel of the vibration through my body from a perfectly tuned bike takes me right back to my old life. Some things never change. Sometimes those things are never meant to change. Although much hadn’t changed since I left, a few things had. The loss of loved ones, the addition of new ones. With one new addition to life things changed for me forever. My life will never be the same. He changed it all.

Excerpt

He inches his face towards mine, and I too edge forward, so not in control of my actions right now, because kissing him is the only thing I can think of. But then I remember he’s drunk, and this kiss will be meaningless in the morning.

Pulling back and shaking my head, in hopes of knocking some sense into my lust-filled brain, I whisper, “You’re drunk, Jasper.”

Jasper smiles, but it’s a sad smile.

His eyes focus on mine as he confesses, “I’m drunk on you. You’re my poison, Ava, and I don’t know how to stop consuming you.”

A breath catches in my throat as words that should be interpreted harshly, aren’t at all perceived that way. I don’t know how to reply, so I don’t. I close my eyes and take five steadying breaths.

One.
Two.
Three.
Four.
Five.

Reopening my eyes, I see that I’m alone.

Peering up at Jasper’s house, I witness him turning back towards my car from his front door. The porch light reflects off his beautiful face, and his expression is mirroring mine. And that expression is one I have been trying so hard to keep at bay, but sadly have been failing at.

That expression is one of submission and surrender.

We both surrender.

And that fact scares the living shit out of me.

Tour: Game Changer by Collette West

Synopsis

Young, rich, and unaware of how seriously hot he is, Brooks Davison is tearing it up as the latest shortstop for the New York Kings, despite his tendency to blush whenever girls scream his name.

When a health scare forces his best friend, Kyle Roberts, off the team, no one can stomach the thought of replacing him, especially so close to the playoffs.

Until Kyle’s sister, Sasha, steps in, convincing management to let her take his place. The idea of signing the first female player in Major League history proves too tempting for the Kings to resist.

Nevertheless, Brooks doesn’t want any part of it. Sasha is Kyle’s little sister, not some sideshow.

Yet when Kyle takes a turn for the worse, Brooks promises to do everything in his power to help Sasha win a championship for him. Because there’s no way he’s letting either of them down. Not now, not ever.

About Collette West

Collette West grew up as somewhat of a jock-nerd hybrid. Entering the world three weeks premature, her dad nearly missed her birth because he had seats behind the dugout for a sold-out, highly-anticipated match-up between two of baseball’s biggest rivals. Not to be outdone, her book-loving mom taught her how to read by the time she was three. A love of the game coupled with an appreciation for the written word were instilled in Collette’s impressionable brain from a young age. No wonder her characters believe in the philosophy: sports + romance = a little slice of heaven.

Splitting her time between the Pocono Mountains and Manhattan, Collette indulges her inner fangirl by going to as many games as she can from hockey to baseball and downloading every sports romance novel in existence onto her iPad. When she’s not clicking away on her laptop, she enjoys walking her dog in Central Park, satisfying her caffeine craving at the Starbucks on Broadway and keeping an eye out for Mr. Right. But above all, she loves dishing with her readers. Email her at collette_west@yahoo.com.
