Shameless Recommendation

Adrian NA Mini Banner
I fell in love with Madoc in Bully. Even though he was an ass, I knew there was more to him. Enter Fallon, Madoc's step-sister. They never got along as teenagers, and when they finally hooked up, Fallon disappeared without a word. Suddenly she's back in Madoc's house for a short time, and the sparks immediately start flying. From the outside it looks like they hate each other, but the sexual tension is obvious. We get more Jared and Tate and a lot of Jax. This story is about second chances. It's sweet but incredibly hot. Like scorching hot. Bravo Penelope Douglas! [August 2014]
Marissa Not So PNR Mini Banner This story had a little of the forbidden, two step-siblings that fall in love, but are ripped apart by lies. We see the story from both POV’s, both present and past tense, so that we are fully ingrained in the story. Though these are high schoolers, this does not read like a normal New Adult novel. I almost forgot their ages throughout the book because the writing draws you in, the story is maddening, heartbreaking, funny and sexy, and so mature for a normal NA story. I also enjoyed seeing characters from the previous books, adding more depth to everyone’s stories, and also the lead-in to the next book. This book surpassed how much I enjoyed Tate and Jared’s story in Bully, you will not be disappointed. [August 2014]

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

She’s back.

For the two years she’s been away at boarding school, there was no word from her. Back when we lived in the same house, she used to cut me down during the day and then leave her door open for me at night.

I was stupid then, but now I’m ready to beat her at her own game…

I’m back.

Two years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he’s better than me.

But I won’t be scared away. Or pushed down. I’ll call his bluff and fight back. That’s what he wants, right? As long as I keep my guard up, he’ll never know how much he affects me…

ASIN: B00INIXJ0O

GENRE

My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom's Jackie Collins novels. I’m a romance junkie and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever BBF. I’m a Part-time Realtor and full-time Mommy with a husband, 2 kids and 3 cats. I love to travel almost as much as I love to read.
