High school junior, Hailey Perish, knows her life can’t get much worse. Since her dad split a few years ago, Hailey’s mother has spiraled hard and fast, careening toward rock bottom and threatening to take her daughter down with her. Hailey now marks time by evictions, her mother’s poker games, and Saturday School where she voluntarily shows up for weekend detentions to secure her one promised meal of the week. She has no room for relationships, especially with someone like her childhood love and golden boy of their high school class, Carson Hart. Hailey trusted him once and Carson failed her. She’s determined not to let herself be hurt again.

When Hailey’s mom does the unthinkable and bets her own daughter in a high stakes poker game, Mitch, the loan shark, is all too eager and determined to collect on his debt. To him, Hailey is nothing but property. His property. And he’ll do anything to recover it. On the run from a fate that promises a much worse life than she already knows, there’s only one person in the world Hailey can call for help.

Will Carson be there for her in her darkest hour and deliver her from harm’s way safe and sound? Or will he abandon Hailey—just like he’s always done—just like they all do?

Alli Hope’s debut novel delivers an unforgettable story about love & surviving in the dark places. Safe & Sound contains mature situations and content.

French Kiss for Hire Episode 1



Sensitive and sexy Frenchman, Luc Du’mont, is living the American dream. He’s spent the last four years at university on an acting scholarship. Now, with graduation behind him, he’s ready to make his big Hollywood splash.
The catch? His debut has to happen before his student visa expires in two months. Otherwise, he’ll be shipped home to France, and all of his acting opportunities will sail with him.
Most important, he’ll lose any chance at winning blond-bombshell Serena Dawson’s heart. As the sister of his roommate, she is strictly off limits. But when Serena approaches Luc for kissing advice, what can Luc do other than pucker up?
The kiss leads to much more than Luc ever imagined. When word gets out about Luc’s lip-locking skills and his unemployment leaves him desperate, Luc finds himself with a new career path: French Kiss for Hire.
Except the only client he wants is the one girl he can’t have.

MY REVIEW 


Ok, so I left off 1/2 of my rater only because I have to wait for each episode of this awesome author collaboration. So technically this is a 5 Rater read!!

Episode 1 was great!! It left me wanting more....well....what more is there you ask.....let's just say lots of kissing, sweet nothings being whispered in your ear, feeling like you're the only person in the world at that moment....who wouldn't love that??

I would definitely hire Luc!! He is dang sexy based on his physical description (looks like a certain person by the name of Channing) and his mannerisms. He is such a sweet guy on top of his physical attributes so you can't help but fall for this sexy Frenchman.

My heart goes out for him because his "little cabbage" that he dreams of he can't have, but he did have that one fleeting moment with her.

I can't wait for the rest of the episodes!!

Bitterroot Part 3


Bitterroot Part 3
 
The epic conclusion to Bitterroot, a 3-part YA paranormal romance novella series by Heather Hildenbrand & SM Reine
 
Regan and Charlie Vuk are finally forced to compete for the position of werewolf pack alpha. The winner gets to lead and she also gets Owen Rossi, the vampire prince’s hand in marriage—whether she wants it or not. But only one sister already has his heart.
 
If Regan wins, will she be able to let go of her feelings for Carter and put duty before desire? Will Charlie be able to survive long enough to get a fair shot at the competition and at Owen? 
Before it’s over, both girls will have to compete for more than just the role of alpha. Someone has a grudge and they’ll do anything to exact vengeance on the guilty. Including removing one of the Vuk sisters from the equation.

Subtle threats escalate to attempted murder. One sister’s life hangs in the balance. The other must do whatever it takes in order to save her pack—and her sibling—including making the enemy her ally.

Will the vampires and werewolves finally forge peace—or will sibling rivalry prove fatal for them all?

 
 
My Review:


I have thoroughly enjoyed every part of the Bitterroot story! I love the characters and the plot. The storyline kept me engaged with all of the characters throughout he whole series. My favorite couple was Charlie and Owen!! I was surprised at the villain and didn't see it coming. I felt the motive was a little weak, but other than that it was an amazing series.

Part 3 is the finale to the Bitterroot story and I'm sorry to see it come to an end. I hope that there might be more to come because I can see some spin offs from this story and I can't wait to see what these two amazing authors can come up with next!!

Bitterroot Part 1 by Heather Hildenbrand & SM Reine


 
 
BITTERROOT Part 1  by Heather Hildenbrand & SM Reine 
 


Seventeen year-old Regan Vuk has lived her whole life under the shadow of her future: the pack alpha. She is fast, smart, and determined. According to her own pack members, she is a shoo-in. But Regan’s dad has a secret.

 
Seventeen year-old Charlie spent her adolescence drifting from place to place with a mother desperate to hide her illegitimate daughter from the unforgiving reality of werewolf pack dynamics. All Charlie has ever wanted is to know her father--and the family that's been kept from her all these years. But most of all, she wants a place to belong in the world. Where she doesn’t have to pretend she can’t sprout fur and paws at will. Being kidnapped on her way home from prom was not she Charlie had in mind. 

When Charlie finds out the only way to fit in with her new family is to defeat her long-lost sister for the role of alpha, she refuses. That is until she learns that the strange and alluring vampire she's befriended, Owen, is the same vampire prince that's been promised the winner.

Regan has no doubt that, although she loathes the vampires, it will be her who "wins" Owen.

Only problem: Charlie's already fallen for him.
 

 Bitterroot is a Young Adult Paranormal with a dose of sibling rivalry... Who will you root for?



My Review: 
I was excited to read Bitterroot Part 1 by Heather Hildenbrand and SM Reine, but I wasn’t sure how the book would come out from two different author’s working on the same book. I felt the story started a little slow, but it didn’t take long for it to grab me and keep my interest. Before I knew it Part 1 was over and I was devastated not to have more…..Part 2 is coming!!
I loved the story of the two sisters who had never met until they had to meet and battle for the role of Alpha. I immediately loved the characters Charlie and Reagan, but I would have to say that I favor Charlie so far. I’m waiting to see how the battle will play out both want the role, but for two very different reasons. One for love and one for royalty. I’m intrigued to find out the real story about what Dad is up to. He seems like he’s up to something more sinister than a wedding to make the clans come to peace.
I am looking forward to part 2 and 3 of Bitterroot!!

Now she’s imprisoned in Twig City, the secret warehouse where she grew up. She spends her days plotting ways to get back to the outside world, determined to topple Titus’s empire and free every last Imitation. But Titus’s reach is extensive and his plans are more deadly than she realized.

In the shocking conclusion to the Imitation series, one wrong move could mean the end for Ven and everyone she’s come to love.

Bonus Scene from Linc
*Two Months After the End of Deviation*
The car is warm despite the chill outside. My window has fogged and I shift trying to get a better view. My legs cramp at being bent so long. I stretch them slowly, first right and then left. My knee pops and I wince. Anna looks over, an apology on the edge of her lips.
“I’m fine,” I say.
She presses her lips together and I know what she’s thinking. We could leave. But neither of us is willing to give up with so little to report back.
The mission is to watch Marla, the woman Titus uses as his gatekeeper out of Twig City. She’s one option among a scant few that we’ve come up with as a way in to look for Ven. Melanie suggested we follow her and try to find a weakness, something we can use against her. But the woman is a robot. She goes to work, she comes home, she watches The Biggest Loser. If we don’t find anything tonight, we’ll move on. I need to watch, to spot something we can exploit. I can’t do that through frosted glass.
Maybe my breaths are too heavy. I will myself to calm down. Anna’s still watching me, her brow furrowed like she’s still trying to come up with a way to fix me. If she only knew.
I pretend not to see her and stare through the window. Outside, the darkness is lit by the soft glow of the street lamps but it’s eerie to me. Shadows encroaching on the light. Monsters plotting. Everything in my life feels like a damn threat these days.
“You could climb in the backseat,” Anna offers finally.
I sigh. Anna’s always trying to please others.
“I’m good,” I repeat, pretending the stiffness doesn’t linger when I reposition my legs and tuck them underneath the dashboard. We’ve been here six hours and counting. Not how I wanted to spend the night—with a girl who isn’t Ven.
As usual when I think of her, I wince at the ache it brings. Anna’s gaze sharpens as she studies me across the shadowed interior of Melanie’s car.
“She’s fine, you know,” Anna says.
I consider pretending not to catch her meaning but it’s no use. I’ve been an open book with a harsh ending for months now. I pretend to stare at Marla’s townhouse at the end of the street but I don’t register a damn thing about it. Inside my head, Ven’s eyes blink back at me, trusting. Her lips pucker affectionately. All of the images are reminders that I failed her.
“How do you know?” I ask and hate the tortured sound of my own words.
“Ven is a fighter. She always has been. She’ll find a way to be okay.”
I ran a hand over my hair, rubbing hard as if that will erase the images that taunt me. “You sound really sure about that. But you can’t know. Not really. She’s in there and we’re out here and no one has even seen her.” Anger, helpless rotten fury, wells in my veins. Without meaning to, my hands ball into fists in my lap.
“He won’t kill her,” Anna says. I don’t know whether to be relieved or dismayed that she sounds so sure. Anna can be hopeful to the point of na├»ve. But right now, it’s all I’ve got to cling to. “If he was going to do it, he would’ve done it long before that night,” she adds.
I lean my head back on the seat, giving up the pretense of actually performing any recon. “How do you do that?” I ask.
“Do what?”
I look over in time to see her blink at me, so unaware of her own strength. Like Ven. I grimace, shove that aside, and force myself to focus on the present. “Be so optimistic all the time,” I say. “Even when things look completely hopeless you’re upbeat.”
Sh shrugs. “My Authentic was that way. Maybe she influenced me. Maybe it’s partly my personality.” She sounds uncertain and I glance sideways at her.
“And the other part?”
“Families don’t give up on each other,” she says. And it’s a matter-of-fact kind of thing that knocks me for a loop. Guilt gnaws at me. She’s right. And she’s family too. All of them are now and I’ve been so wrapped up in losing Ven and trying to get her back, I’ve forgotten all of them are messed up too.
“You’re right,” I say, forcing myself to sound like I mean it. For Anna’s sake. I twist to face her squarely. “We are family. And families always fight.”
She smiles at me but I look away. I don’t know how to tell her that particular kind of smile, the warm, fuzzy feeling it gives, reminds me of Ven. I don’t deserve a smile like that when I lost her to  a man like Titus Rogen.
I clear my throat and look around for something to say. “How’s your arm?” I ask.
She holds it up and even in the dim lighting I see the scar is already fading. “Much better,” she says.
I grunt, glad to see the infection didn’t cause permanent damage. Cutting out a GPS tracker is risky business. But she’s right, it looks a lot better. Much more healed than my sorry ass broken heart. I look up at Marla’s house one last time and start the engine. There’s nothing for us here. We’re going to have to do this another way.

Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me. 

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face. Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has neverneeded Ven . . . until now.

When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?
