It’s like Christmas in January!
Only, there’s not an imaginary fat man falling down your chimney, eating your cookies and beer, leaving behind noisy toys your kids will thank him for instead of you who worked 1/2 the year to pay for.
Just a buttload of good smut coming *heh* out today!

Come to Me Quietly by A.L. Jackson
I am anointing AL Jackson the Mistress of Angst.
The two other books of hers I’ve read—Lost to You and Take This Regret—were ★★★★★ hardcore sob-fests for me. Just like with those two books, the full-on ugly cry came out of my face while I read Come to Me Quietly, and I loved every minute of it.
AL Jackson makes me FEEL. Her words are wrought with emotions and worry and love and deep, deep feelings. Sure, I wanted to strangle Aly and Jared a few times to get them to actually talk to one another and get the truth out in the open, but then the book would have been over in the first two chapters. With Come To Me Quietly, I didn’t feel their connection right away like I do in most books; instead, their deep connection is revealed over time and with intense struggle.
Come to Me Quietly can be read as a standalone book with the continuation of their story coming in July with Come to Me Softly. I can’t recommend Come to Me Quietly enough; it is emotional reading at its best.[/box_light]

How long did it take you to find your place in the world?
For Ethan Walker, going through the motions of life, keeping his distance and never getting attached has become the mantra he lives by.

Until Beau, Ethan had never met a man who could get him to question his own logic and even consider taking a different path.
Beau Bennett knows exactly who he is – now. It might’ve taken him some time to figure it out, but now that he has his bearings, Beau has set his sights on the mysteriously sexy Ethan Walker. Pursuing someone has never been his style, but something is telling him to keep at it because the end result is going to be worth it.
Now that they’ve found one another, how long will it take Ethan and Beau to accept that their place in the world is… Together?

Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed “bad boy” friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won’t let herself get burned again. She’s waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.
Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he’s returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome’s used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer through it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes a blinding flash of color in a sea of gray.Perfect may not be in the cards, but perfectly imperfect could just last forever . . .[/box_light]
The Destiny of Violet & Luke (Callie & Kayden) by Jessica Sorensen
Luke Price’s life has always been about order, control, and acting tough on the outside. For Luke, meaningless relationships are a distraction-a way to tune out the twisted memories of his childhood. He desperately wishes he could forget his past, but it haunts him no matter what he does.
Violet Hayes has had a rough life. When she was young, she was left with no family and the memory of her parents’ unsolved murders. She grew up in foster homes, living with irresponsible parents, drugs, and neglect, and trying to fight the painful memories of the night her parents were taken from her. But it’s hard to forget when she never got closure-and she can’t stop dreaming about what happened that tragic night. To make it through life, she keeps her distance from everyone and never allows herself to feel anything.
Then Violet meets Luke. The two clash instantly, yet they can’t seem to stay away from each other. Although they fight it, they both start to open up and feel things they’ve never felt before. They discover just how similar they are. But they also discover something else: The past always catches up with you . . .[/box_light]

He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.
Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.
My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.
And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same.
