There are two things in this life that Gus Brannock truly loves; his family and his job. His family is growing and he wants what his brother and sister have before the job he's worked so hard for takes its toll. The woman he's got his eye on, however, isn't interested in being with a man who risks his life every day. When the unexpected friendship with the sassy red head he used to hate turns into something Gus just doesn't want to live without, he will do whatever it takes to have her. The hazards of his job as a detective for missing children may end up proving to be too much, but there's a reason Aiden was brought into his life and nothing will stand in his way to keep her there.
Aiden Murphy used to hate the handsome jerk next door until a surprising discovery spun her world in another direction. Her life of devotion to her sister and niece has been her biggest strength with the exception of her art. That is, until Gus turns out to be the one thing that has been missing from that life all along. Aiden must decide if the unknown is worth the risk of loving the dedicated detective or if being pulled into his world is more than she can handle. When Gus becomes the only way for her to keep the people she loves most safe, will she understand why he treasures her untried strength or will she let her fear of the unknown decide for her?

For readers 18+ due to strong language and sexual situations.

Synopsis:

Adventure. That's all Aislinn 'Ash' Brannock wanted in her life. Her dad and two brothers - all cops - got to see it all, but their over-protectiveness made her feel like she had been locked away in a tower with three fire breathing dragons watching her every move. Yes, it was that bad. The only silver lining? Lucas Shade. Her brothers' best friend growing up, and apparently the only man she will ever love because let's face it, none of the others even come close. After an unfortunate mistake lands her back in her father's home, her world is turned upside down and Lucas is there in a tightly wrapped package of serious with a big red bow on top. Life just got interesting, but it comes with a price, one she never wanted to pay.
Detective Lucas Shade never had a real family, but the Brannocks took him in as one of their own and he never took it for granted. Ash was a big reason for why he stuck around, but in order to save himself the beating of a lifetime from her two older brothers, he kept his feelings for her hidden. When the case he has been working on for months takes a turn, Ash could become the leverage the bad guys have been waiting for, but keeping her invisible may destroy everything Lucas has worked so hard for. Good thing Ash is the only person he would give up everything to protect.

Synopsis:

 
Conall Brannock takes his job seriously. He doesn't get attached, he doesn't ask questions, and he protects his family at all costs. Nothing will change that. Not even the sweet, green eyed witness that just burst into his life and shifted his world. He has one job to do; protect Emily until she can testify. He can't let his interest in her get in the way, but the more he finds out about her, the more he can't help but wonder how the beautiful broken girl got into this mess in the first place. And the longer he takes to learn the truth, the deeper he falls for her.
Emily Dawson has a job to do. Stay off the grid, testify, and hopefully get her brother back. He's all she has left of the family she struggled so hard to hold together and she would do anything to keep him safe. Even if it means she has put herself in harm's way or that she has conned everyone into believing she saw something she didn't. She knows where her loyalties lie, but her stoic yet gentle protector and his crazy family makes her question everything she once knew.
Loyalty can be one sided.
Family isn't always blood.
And honesty can destroy everything she has come to love.

Jessica Wilde I live in Morgan Utah with my husband, daughter, and dog, Kolo. I write as often as my active daughter will let me and my husband has the patience of a saint. I find inspiration from dreams, people I meet, and life experiences. When I write, I usually end up drinking one too many cans of Peace Tea, eating three too many Fruit by the Foot fruit snacks, and accidently kicking my pup and best buddy, Kolo, too many times since he loves to sleep under my desk at my feet.
I started writing as a teen, but my fear of the unknown won out every time and I threw everything out. After becoming a mother and deciding to stay at home to raise my beautiful little girl, I tried again when I couldn't stop thinking of ideas. I loved every minute, every hour of sleep lost, and every character that came to life in my mind.
It's strange, but my favorite moments are when I have writer's block because I can turn to my husband and find inspiration through him by just doing what we do best together. Talking, laughing, and just being in love. He doesn't like to read, but he never stops encouraging me to keep going.
Writing has become an important part of my life and every book has a special place in my heart.

Blake:
I am a brother I am a police detective I am a contract killer I don’t want to love I don’t want to feel I don’t want … EMPATHY.
They say some people are born with decreased activity in the front central lobe causing them a deficiency in empathy. Maybe that’s true about me but whether I was born this way or created in a moment of evil, empathy was something I didn’t possess until her green eyes met mine in the mirror and I couldn’t take her life. I didn’t want to feel, didn’t want this woman in my life complicating how I lived but she was there at every turn. Sent to haunt me for my sins. Her light so bright she provoked a shadow from everyone she touched. When a job turns bad quickly altering my life forever I’m forced to feel. When nothing is making sense I’m forced to face truths I never would recover from. When life drowns you in its cruelty you don’t know which way the current will drag you or who you’ll become once you re-surface.
Melody:
I was a daughter I was a student I was a victim Did I have his love? Did I make him feel? Did I have his empathy? When the actions of a soulless killer forces sorrow into my veins I never dreamed the man healing my wounds would be the one to leave the worst scar. His love would scar my soul. Scars are permanent; I will never feel the relief from them. Will I learn to live with them, remember why I have them and learn never to let him close enough to inflict more? Will I eventually cover them… like tattoos coating them with new memories, new love and new starts? I didn’t know these answers because the pain was too suffocating, the only thing I knew was they will always be under the surface lingering. He had scars too, from his sins. There is nothing that can cover them, they were too deep, too ugly, too dark and they marked us both forever.

Ker DukeyI have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister. You can find me on facebook where i love interacting with my readers.

Devour Me by Kailin Gow Taryn Cummings could not believe she was accepted into the prestigious International Institute of Culinary Arts culinary institute she dreamed of studying at in beautiful Paris, France. It was a far cry from her unglamorous life back home in New York where she helped her mother run their small family-owned restaurant called Sam's. The Institute churned out the top chefs in the world, including the wildly sexy and eccentric Master Chef, Errol King, whose celebrity personality was larger than life. She wanted excitement in a city of romance and thrills, but arrived to find her apartment barely livable and herself in need of a suitable place to stay. A chance meeting at the Institute brings her face-to-face with her new roommate...the devilishly charming Errol King, who would be guest teaching her class this term. The attraction is as hot as the fire they cook with, and while Errol King, the notorious bad boy chef with an attitude, can get anyone he wanted into his bed, he wanted this woman more than anything. Something about her sweet innocence and sad eyes reach into his harden heart, but is it enough for him to forget his past?

Vital Sign by J.L. Mac My world was perfect, until it wasn’t.

No vital sign. *** Despite her general indifference to organ donation, Sadie sets out to heal by finding those who benefited from her husband’s tragic death, but instead of peace, finds only jealousy and rage. Though Sadie hates Alexander McBride for his health, he soothes her grief in ways that are intoxicating; addictive even. Can she learn to love the man who now owns the heart that used to beat just for her?  If she has any hope of overcoming her all consuming grief, he must convince her that it still does.

Searching for Moore by Julie Richman I lost the love of my life when she disappeared without even a goodbye. It was the 80’s – there was no internet, no Google, no cell phones. If you wanted to disappear, you could.  And she did.  She crushed my soul. A friend just told me he saw her on Facebook. And now I’m a keystroke away from asking her the question that’s haunted me for two decades.  “Why did you leave me?” Sexy entrepreneur Schooner Moore receives the birthday bombshell of a lifetime - his true love, college girlfriend Mia Silver, the girl who broke his heart when she fled without even a goodbye at the end of their freshman year, has been seen on Facebook. Now 24 years later, Schooner discovers the truth behind what drove Mia from him as he tries to once again win her love.

Cedric wasn’t expecting to fall in love at first sight with the pretty waitress he’d set out to find. In fact, she was the last woman on Earth he should be having feelings for. Before revealing himself, he makes her believe their meetings are coincidental. Cedric’s lies and secrets are finally revealed, changing both of their lives forever.

Angel After Dark by Kahlen Aymes Gorgeous, hotshot executive, Alexander Avery, is all business and doesn’t believe in love.  He bases his relationships on mutual convenience and makes no apologies for his lifestyle or his choices.  When his on-the-way-out girlfriend calls into a late night radio program to whine about his treatment of her, he is angrier at the host’s advice, than the inconsequential woman’s bitch-fest. Psychologist Angeline Hemming has little tolerance for bullshit, so when Alex calls into her show a week later to give his side of the story, she calls him out on his excuses, and um… habits.  When they finally meet, their sexual chemistry and mental connection leaves them both reeling, as they take their fight… to the mattresses! A sizzling hot, smart, funny, & suspenseful 5 star throw-down you won’t want to miss from the USA Today bestselling author of The Remembrance Trilogy

Belong to You by Vi Keeland My honeymoon was almost everything I dreamed it would be; a tropical paradise, turquoise water, romantic walks on the beach, and loads and loads of mind shattering sex. The only thing missing was the groom. After seven years of coasting through a relationship with Michael, my senses were numb. A week of passion with a stranger was just what I needed to clear my head and take back control of my life. But how do you move on when the man that was only supposed to be a fling somehow seeps into your soul and steals your heart?

A Booknatic Review: Darkness Watching by Emma L. Adams.


Darkness Watching (Darkworld, #1)Darkness Watching, by Emma L. Adams
Book 1 in the Darkworld series
Young Adult / Paranormal / Adventure
Blurb: 
Eighteen-year-old Ashlyn is one interview away from her future when she first sees the demons. She thinks she's losing her mind, but the truth is far more frightening: she can see into the Darkworld, the home of spirits– and the darkness is staring back.
Desperate to escape the demons, Ash accepts a place at a university in the small town of Blackstone, in the middle of nowhere - little knowing that it isn't coincidence that led her there but the pull of the Venantium, the sorcerers who maintain the barrier keeping demons from crossing from the Darkworld into our own world.
All-night parties, new friendships and a life without rules or limits are all part of the package of student life - but demons never give up, and their focus on Ash has attracted the attention of every sorcerer in the area. Ash is soon caught between her new life and a group of other students with a connection to the Darkworld, who could offer the answers she's looking for. The demons want something from her, and someone is determined to kill her before she can find out what it is.
In a world where darkness lurks beneath the surface, not everyone is what they appear to be

Sky's Thoughts:


 A terrifying yet electrifying ride through a dark, paranormal world!
Before I begin my review, what I LOVED about this book:
This is a young adult paranormal ADVENTURE, action packed and just a perfect dash of romance. 
I also absolutely loved the heroine! She’s well-rounded, intelligent and tough-as-nails. I admire how she does not sway easily toward peer-pressure, and does what she feels needs to be done and how she wants to do it. Actually, all the characters were easy to become attached to as the reader! They were fun/funny, true and helpful– besides the one who was not so keen about the new girl LOL, but you’ll see her intentions later once you read! 
I was thinking how cool it would be to possibly see future installments in some of their POV’s, their own side of the story as they deal with all the danger that has been thrown their way. 
Now, not only were the characters such a win, but oh-my-gawd, the plot. This book is full of unique lore! You could tell the author has a passion and knows it well. It was so well thought out and the world-building was designed so flawlessly that I felt as if I were standing right beside them when things began to get wild. I was completely enveloped within this world!

The story is told in the perspective of a young lady named Ashlyn, and she has not a thing on her mind save for passing the latest exams and getting accepted into her dream university -- even as the whole town is up in arms with paranoia about the world coming to an end. Well, funnily enough, the world survived yet another paranoid doomsday prediction, but her sanity most definitely did not! Coincidentally, shortly after the town’s ludicrous fear dark voids began to appear; and it seemed as if she were the only person who could see them.
She was so frazzled over her exams and worries of college acceptances, that she had started to believe these voids and the amethyst eyes which peered at her from within them, were all figments of her sleep-deprived imagination, causing her to make a complete fool of herself in public.
To her dismay --which she will realize later-- she would be proven wrong. Her imagination was the least of her worries when a peculiar University sent her an acceptance letter, one that she didn’t quite remember applying to.
Seeing as her Oxford dreams were shattered in the shape of an envelope, and a tour to this bizarre and mysterious college called Blackstone University -- set in the town of which the Uni is named after-- she decided to go with it.
Upon arrival, she found that she was not alone when it came to her strange run-ins with the voids and the demons that lurked in between her world and theirs. Needless to say, her calling to this college was undeniably destined.
She finds herself housed with many other young men and women who have a lot more in common with her than she could ever imagine. Oh, can’t forget about the resident-nut, Terence (lol!) He was one of my favorites; always screaming, making loud noises and making weird appearances in the kitchen and making a mess. He played an interesting part in the book. *bites lip* I’ll say no more!
Then you had Claudia who is a badass chick in heels and little black dresses!! The other flat-mates were just as awesome.
Claudia is the one who breaks the news to her: no matter how normal Ash strives to be in her attempts to start a new life in this college, one that doesn’t involve demon hallucinations, is a failed attempt. She’s one of them whether she likes it or not and this madness was most definitely real.
Shortly after meeting Claudia, she is introduced to the circle, a group of other Blackstone students who found themselves meant to be together, in unison of their abilities and family-ties.
With the help of her new friends, Ashlyn is set out to find her place in this mad, magical world and just how deep her roots are set into this chaos, something her parents never clued her in on. Through these trials, one particular moment where Ash is fighting for her life, her powers appear unexpectedly and might I just say without an attempt to spoil, it’s totally cool and chilling muahha!
You know when my review is long that I immensely enjoyed myself as I was reading, sometimes I just can’t shut up, and that’s a bad thing when you don’t want to spoil any of the good stuff, which is basically the entire book . . . yep, I did not find a single thing that I didn’t like about this read other than the fact I got to the last page and realized I was back in reality!!  I have a new favorite author and paranormal top-pick! :D I can’t wait to discover what’s next in this series!




 
 
 


Krystle's Thoughts :



The world that the author created for her characters was very unique, I loved how...dark and mysterious everything was. Not that I'm saying that this was a doom-and-gloom type of book, not at all! It's just different than what I've been reading lately, and I am very thankful that this author asked me to read it. It's full of adventure, MAGIC, sorcerers, mystery, and it flirts with the idea of having a little romance. Maybe as the series progresses, we'll see more to that side.



The story is told from the main character Ashlyn's POV. She's a very strong-minded young woman, who had her heart set on going to Oxford University, but it seems the universe has different plans for where she attends to further her studies. As all of this is going on though, she starts experiencing something other-worldly...something she can't explain, and she's now convinced that she's losing her mind. I mean how normal is it to see incorporeal shadow creatures, that sometimes watch her with their purple eyes, and sometimes even...speak to her.



Which now leads her to Blackstone University. While she visited there, she didn't encounter any paranormal events, so she thought it'd be a fresh start. Somewhere she could discover herself, get over her hermit-like tendencies, and even possibly make some new friends. – I did get a kick out of how Ash is a “Gamer-Chick” and likes to play online mmo's like WoW, I myself can identify with that! – As she moves into her room at uni, and gets to know the rest of her flat-mates, she does start to have a good time and relax...until her not-so-friendly-shadows-pets appear. Then, her adventure REALLY begins!



You're not mad. Just...different. And who wants to be normal?” - Claudia to Ash.

I love that!



Ash learns that there are other students at this university like her, that she's not alone, and she's definitely not crazy. Shortly after she befriends this group of people, I knew that she had to be “special”...and that there was something more to her. I liked reading about the progress she was having with her new found abilities; how she learned to use and control them. She seems like a really smart young woman, that's more than capable of taking care of herself. I'm sure she'll become even more “bad-a$$” as this series progresses. It's books like these that allow us, the reader, dream with our eyes open. I would love nothing more than to have a life full of fantasy and magic. That'd be so much fun! Probably why I enjoy playing those Fantasy themed MMORPG's!



...I'd also like to see Ash take a crack at Berenice...at least once! :)



It goes without saying, that I enjoyed this book very much, and I will highly recommend it to friends in the future!



This copy was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.


 
 

Picture
Emma spent her childhood creating imaginary worlds to compensate for a disappointingly average reality, so it was probably inevitable that she ended up writing fantasy novels for children and young adults. She was born in Birmingham, UK, which she fled at the first opportunity to study English Literature at Lancaster University. In her three years at Lancaster, she hiked up mountains, skydived in Australia, and endured a traumatic episode involving a swarm of bees in the Costa Rican jungle. She also entertained her creative writing group and baffled her tutors by submitting strange fantasy tales featuring dragons and supernatural monsters to workshops. These included her first publication, a rather bleak dystopian piece, and a disturbing story about a homicidal duck (which she hopes will never see the light of day).
Now a reluctant graduate, Emma refuses to settle down and be normal. When not embarking on wild excursions, she edits and proofreads novels for various publishing houses and reads an insane number of books. At the age of 21, she signed a publishing contract with Curiosity Quills Press for the first book in her creepy urban fantasy Darkworld series. DARKNESS WATCHING was published in October 2013, and four more novels and a novella will follow. She chats about writing and other book-related things at her blog, From the Writer’s Nest, and looks forward to sharing more tales from the bizarre depths of her imagination.
