Author Requested Review



Four months have passed since Ellie’s heart was broken by her cheating boyfriend, Gerrid. Sick of mourning, she sets out in search of one thing, a man to make her forget. Madame Eve, a matchmaker, arranges for Ellie to meet just the man at Nocturnal Nightclub in Miami. Bryce is not only sexy as sin, but full of mystery. He does things no man should be capable of. Ellie might question his fast speed, cold hands, and even the way he bites at her skin―if he wasn’t so determined to awaken the part of her that’s been buried by lies.

Days have passed since Bryce’s last feeding and his vampire hungers demand to be sated. But feeding is not his only intention. Ellie seeks to be a different woman, to gain power for herself, and Bryce plans to push her to discover it. To show her she can do things she never thought possible and force her to see the strength she yearns for already lives inside of her.

Ellie will have to choose, expose all of herself, or remain hidden in the dark shadows. But Bryce will have to make a choice of his own—let her go or keep Ellie forever?

Sexual


If you’re not familiar with the 1NS series of short stories, well then, you are in for a treat.

Ellie has been depressed and feeling worthless ever since her last boyfriend dumped her.  She decides to use the services of Madame Eve and 1NS (One Night Stand) to treat herself to a night of no-strings attached, uncomplicated, completely fulfilling debauchery.  Bryce on the other hand had grown tired of string of women coming through the revolving door.  The services offered by Madame Eve allow him to satisfy his physical needs and give something back to the women in return.

For a short story, Ms. Kennedy packs a wallop.  Just enough emotional pain, love lost, and self-esteem issues to get you involved with the characters but not overburden the story.  Ellie’s one-night stand is more than she ever expected; as Bryce worships her and brings out the woman hidden inside.  But oh no, this is not a one-way street.  What Ellie unknowingly offers Bryce is too good to be true. 

Get out the fan and ice water and keep them close by – you’ll need them.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
