Excerpt:

“No, Rainey. Let me look at you. I love looking at you. Even when I close my eyes, all I see is you.”

I dropped my arms, my legs trembling. This was Rowan, the sweet, kindhearted boy I loved. Yet, in that moment I feared him. The adrenaline was wearing off and I was suddenly so cold.

His lips parted as he stared at me, those blue eyes I knew so well slowly taking in my body as heat blazed behind them. He’d grown so large, twice my size at least, and it had never occurred to me how strong he was until now. Nobody would pick on him anymore. Not without getting their asses handed to them in a fight.

“Can I touch you, Rainey?” His eyes lifted to mine. “Is that all right? For me to touch you?”

“Always,” I whispered, unable to put any strength in my voice. “You can always touch me.”

He stepped forward and I stepped back out of instinct. He would never hurt me. Not Rowan. But what I saw in him now was the predator that had always lingered just beneath the surface. He wasn’t a monster like his family or David. Not him. He was something else entirely.

Pain shot through his eyes when I moved, his hands fisting at his sides. “Do I scare you now?”

Shaking my head, I forced my mouth to move. “No. It’s just -“

“Just what?”

“You’re different, Rowan. A man, I guess. You’ve grown.”

Blue eyes held mine, the darkness in them seeping away, but not entirely. His lips pulled into a tight smile. “You need a man. I’ve become exactly what you need. For you, Rainey. Not anybody else. Just for you.”

I drew in a rattling breath. “Touch me.”

Rowan moved forward and I held my ground, craning my neck to look up at him. He was shaking, his skin so cold that I knew I had to fix him somehow. “Rowan?”

“Yeah?”

“Will you kiss me?”

My Review:
What could possibly go wrong with moving into Clayton Heights, living next door to the Connor family of four brothers and their dad? Rainey Summer Day, yup that’s her name! Her momma must have hated her from the beginning of time to give her a name like that in this lifetime. The Five will stick with you longer than five minutes, days, weeks or even months!

Passionate couple having sex

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

Woman on bed

She just didn’t know.

I feel the need to tell you all about this amazing woman.

Lydia

We met in person about a year ago at a signing, I was embarrassed about meeting her without reading her work. However, she took her time to tell me about her work and asked a lot of questions about what I liked to read. My journey started with SACRIFICE OF THE PAWN and continued on from there and I still haven’t read everything she has written, she is so prolific! When I say no two books are alike I mean it, she writes everything, no holds bar! She makes you feel all the emotions and makes you laugh out loud, the best way to describe it, she makes you live your life to the fullest, whether it’s in her books or meeting her personally, she gives you her all, every time, every day,and with every book.

A broken girl.

Maybe, if Emma
Hartley prays hard enough, Church Logan can make both their wishes come true.
Fuse, meet match. 

Author Bio
Crazy woman
from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a
necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about
right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see
shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m
clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs
more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I
do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the
year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a
curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t
understand me.
Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

Wishing Well by Lily White

“Journalist, Meadow Graham, is invited to interview death row inmate, Vincent Mercier. Given three days to hear his sordid confession, Meadow seeks to learn why a wealthy hotel owner killed four people, including her twin sister.

Sensually exotic and enigmatic, Vincent details his deception while bragging about the amusement he took in manipulating Meadow’s sister.

Their interview is a battle of wills. 
His story is a twisted web of coercion and lies. 
And the tragedy is too perfect to be real.

Will Meadow discover all of Vincent’s secrets while she fights to protect her own?”

My new thing these days is to read a book without much knowledge beforehand, no preconceived notions or ideas, no hints, no thoughts of twists or turns within the pages or trying to get into the head of the author, just read the damn book, pure and simple.  It truly is the only way to read a book these days.  With that in mind, I have been trying to come up with a review of this outstanding book without spoilers for about a week and I’m not sure if I can do it. However, I can tell you how I felt after reading this story. Intrigued, Stunned, Astonished, Flabbergasted, and Stupefy. I needed to know what is a sociopath? What is the difference between a sociopath and psychopath? Now I have a need to read everything written by Lily White, was told by several friends and fellow readers that she is a must read dark author and sure enough, once you read her work there is a need for more, more of her words strung together, but it’s not just her words, it’s the way in which she tells her stories that have you feeling like you lost something, more than likely, it’s your mind-BLOWN!

I know this is not a great review, told you didn’t think I could do it but, if you want to read a fabulous review please read Shabnam Arora’s review:https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/26191846-shabby–bookbistroblog
