Release Day!! Unraveling You – Jessica Sorensen


Unraveling You




Lyric Scott has always had a good life. Outgoing, spunky, and musically talented, she’s constantly surrounded by family and friends, yet she still feels that there’s something missing.

Then she meets her new next-door neighbor Ayden Gregory. Mysterious, sweet, and sad, Ayden is the exact opposite of Lyric and exactly what she needs to fill the void in her life.

Ayden Gregory has been through more than most people and believes his life is always going to be rocky, so when he’s suddenly adopted, he’s thrown for a turn. But even with a new, loving family, he still finds himself haunted by the memories of his old life. The only true breath of fresh air is when he’s with his best friend, Lyric Scott.

As Lyric and Ayden grow closer, the lines of their friendship start to blur. But when Ayden’s past unexpectedly pushes its way into his new life, their friendship and newfound attraction will be tested.



When he grows silent again, I crack an eyelid open. He’s dazing off over my shoulder with undiluted pain in his eyes. The realness of him causes my heart to stutter, and my fingers yearn to jot down unwritten words.
God, what has he been through to create such a look?
When his focus lands back on me, his eyes burn fiercely, as if he’s terrified out of his damn mind “Shut your eyes,” he whispers, almost horrified.
I do as he says without question, trusting him completely, even though his intensity is enough to make the calmest person in the world feel disconcerted.
He sticks the earbud in my ear and the gloomy, unhurried beat of Radiohead’s “How To Disappear Completely” soaks through my wounded soul.
“You picked the perfect song,” I mutter as the music engulfs me. “This is exactly what I—”
His lips brush mine, stealing the words right from my mouth. My breath catches in my throat and my first instinct is to pull away. But I don’t want to pull away. I want to stay. Let him erase that last few hours from my mind.
I keep my eyes shut, too afraid to open them as his lips timidly start to move against mine. Just a whisper of a graze. A heart-stopping brush. A soul-drowning taste. He does it again and again, taking his time, erasing all the ickiness from tonight. As I absorb each soft graze, his tongue slowly follows, slipping into my mouth. I gasp, but still don’t open my eyes. I barely move. Can hardly think. And when he pulls back, gently biting at my bottom lip, I stop breathing all together.
That burn songs promise.
Blazes in me.
Hot and scorching.
So sweltering and mind-numbing.
I feel it in my veins.
Liquid fire.
Driving me insane.
And the bar set so high.
Ayden has soared over.
Past the heavens.
And captured me eternally.
“Go to sleep, Lyric,” he whispers, his breathing ragged.
I nod, still terrified to open my eyes. Terrified I’ll lose this moment.
A moment I know I’ll be able to fill pages and pages with the most powerful lyrics I’ve ever written. All about him and that kiss.

Wreck Me – Jessica Sorensen

wreck me_Sorensne



When Avery Hensley met Conner Wellings, she thought she’d found the guy she was going to spend the rest of her life with. She got married young and had the most beautiful son in the world.

Life seemed perfect.

But not everything is what it seems.

Turned out Conner had another side to him, a darker side that Avery didn’t see coming. He wrecked and broke her into a thousand pieces, leaving Avery to put herself back together. From then on, Avery vows never to let a man into her life again.

But then she meets Tristan Morganson. He’s sweet and sexy and wrecks Avery in a different way than Conner did, the kind of way that makes her feel alive again, the kind of way that makes her think maybe not all guys are bad. But can Avery trust him enough to let her walls come crumbling down?

*Can be read as a standalone.*




I can’t recall ever beginning a review this way, but hey, there’s a first time for everything. So right now, I’m going to tell you stop reading this, don’t waste your time. By continuing to read this, you are taking away valuable moments that could be spent reading the book! Because trust me, you’ll regret not having already started this one.

Wreck Me is one of those novels that I finished with such a book hangover that I can’t possibly even consider picking up another read for at least a few days… maybe even a week. It’s a novel with so much tragedy and pain. But despite that all, it’s filled with such hope that it rubs off on you, sticking with you for weeks.

First things first. I loved the set up of this novel. Jessica Sorensen brings us from past to present, unveiling the history of the characters while at the same time making us fall in love with the present. It’s such a wonderful way to tell a story, and frankly not every author can pull it off but Jessica Sorensen does more than simply pull off this style of story telling.

Avery is one of the strongest, most caring and genuine characters ever. She has a past, a pretty gruesome one at that. But she’s trying her hardest to be the person she wants to be- to be the mother that her son deserves, the sister that her brother deserves and the friend that Tristan needs. Like so many of the best people the world has to offer (both in fiction and reality) she doesn’t realize that she already all of these things and is constantly striving to be… more. As a whole, Avery is extremely relatable, despite all that she’s been through. She’s a character that you can’t help but be drawn to, the kind you wish were real because you want that kind of person in your life.

Tristan doesn’t realize how good he has become because he’s stuck in the past. He’s too focused on how bad he was and horrible things he’s done and he has trouble accepting that he’s changed. I loved the side of Tristan we get to see in this novel- I love who he is when he is with Avery. She has a way of bringing out the best parts of him and making him want to change, but not just for her, for himself too.

Together these two have a beautiful thing. Avery began cautious, having been burned (or wrecked) in the past, she wanted to protect herself- and it’s not just herself she’s protecting, she has a son to think about. I loved that it wasn’t a sort of instalove. Instant attraction? Certainly, even Avery couldn’t deny that no matter how much she wanted to. But they began as something very strictly friends and grew into more, into something real. It was genuine and lovely; full of harmless flirtation and stolen glances that last just a little too long for something platonic and when they finally got there, it was that much more special.


As if I’ve lost my mind, I wet my lips with my tongue, a move I haven’t done in years. A slow smile curves at his lips.

“You did that on purpose,” he murmurs while eyeing my mouth and moistening his lips with his tongue.

“No I didn’t.” I suck my bottom lip into my mouth.

What the hell am I doing?

Stop leaning in Avery.

But we move like magnets. He leans in a little. I lean in a little. Me. Him. Me. Him. There’s hardly any space left between us. I can feel the warmth of his breath. Smell the delicious scent of his cologne. He’s still holding the cigarette and smoke circles around us mixing with the intensity of the moment. Am I going to do this? Let my wall down for another guy?




I never fully get to make the decision because Tristan eliminates the last of the space between us and our lips collide.

Today we’re excited to celebrate the release of Ella and Micha: Infinitely and Always by Jessica Sorensen. Enjoy a sneak peek into the book below, my review and don’t forget to enter the giveaway! Good luck!

Infinitely And Always_ebooklg


**A Secret Series Novella**

After five years of marriage, Ella couldn’t be happier. Her job is great. Her marriage is amazing. But when she receives some surprising news, her world is turned upside down.

Micha loves being a musician, but being on the road, and away from Ella, is difficult. When the industry begins to put pressure on him to change his image, he makes a choice; one he fears is going to drastically change Ella’s and his future forever. That is until he learns Ella has a secret, one that makes his career choice seem hugely insignificant.



This novella was short and sweet, we start with Micha on the road touring and hating every moment of being away from Ella. Even worse, he’s under major pressure from the label to change his image to their needs and “quit being so happy.” Micha has a choice to make and he’s torn.

Ella is missing Micha. Sure, she’s pretty close with her brother and Caroline and she sees Ethan and Lila daily, but she misses her husband when he’s touring. Not that she would ever tell him how lonely she gets, she doesn’t want to make him feel guilty for living his dream.

Not one to let us down, Jessica Sorensen seriously delivers with this short, sweet novella. Five years into marriage Micha and Ella are still as hot for each other as ever. I love how confident and sure of herself and her relationship Ella is, sure there’s a major fear that confronts her in this novella but she seems to have really found herself which is amazing because she’s such a wonderful character – the kind you can’t help but pull for all the time. Micha has matured as well and I love seeing the relationship between the two still strong – stronger than ever – even when they have to spend time apart and after several year together. So many people assume the thrill of love and the flame die soon after marriage but Ella and Micha prove the haters wrong!

And yes, we get to see some Lila and Ethan too. You won’t be disappointed with Ella and Micha’s best friends. They’re wonderful as ever and always so much fun to read about.

Sidenote, I believe this is the first Jessica Sorensen work I’ve read in a while that had me crying – but only tears of joy. (Yes, ok I’m a giant crybaby. I cry when things are happy and sad and cute… you get the point…) It’s nice to see this couple, who has endured so much heartache and pain get past that and to a happy place.


A slow breath eases from his lips as his gaze collides with mine. “Sorry. I’m being a downer, aren’t I?” He leans toward me, tucking a strand of hair behind my ear. “That isn’t fair to you after you flew across the country to see me.”

“Micha, you should know by now”—I press my lips together, trying not to laugh as I prepare to quote a line from one of his songs—“that I would travel to hell and back just to be with you.”

“Ha, ha,” he says playfully, sticking out his tongue. “You wound my heart, Ella May. I wrote those lyrics for you and you mock me with them.”

“I’m not mocking, just having fun—”

He cuts me off as he nips at my bottom lip, eliciting a soul-bearing groan from me. He slowly starts unbuttoning my shirt, picking up the pace the farther down he gets until he finally becomes so impatient he rips the fabric off.

“I miss your kisses the most.” I willingly lean against the piano as he unfastens my bra and urges me back.

He quickly stands up to tug his shirt over his head and then places an arm on each side of me as his body hovers over mine. “I miss everything the most,” he says before he kisses me. “All the fucking time. I swear to God, I need to see you more.”

My legs fasten around his waist as the ivory keys dig into my flesh. My fingers trace the outlines of his muscular stomach, the inscription of his tattoos, feeling his heart slamming erratically against his chest.

Excitement bursts to the surface when he pushes back to undo the button on my jeans.

“Micha, wait.” I pant. “Are we really going to do this?”

“Do what?” He teases me with a cock of his brow as he gradually unzips my jeans.

I kick off my shoes while I gasp for air. “Have sex on a piano.”

He pulls my jeans and panties off, his passionate gaze skimming every inch of my flesh, stifling my eager body with overpowering heat.

“You sound so excited about the idea,” he says as I reach for the top of his pants and unflick the button.

“I’ll take it wherever I can get it.” I sit up and yank his jeans down. “Besides, we can add it to our growing list of strange places we’ve had sex. I think this one might earn the number three spot, right below backstage at a concert, wrapped in the curtain.”

Instead of smiling, his happiness falters. “I promise I’m going to find a way to change all this, pretty girl. You deserve so much better than this.”

Reluctant Prince – Dani Lyn Alexander

Reluctant Prince Tour Banner

I have the privilege of being a part of the blog tour for Reluctant Prince by Dani Lyn Alexander and I’m so thrilled to be a part of this stop!


So… obviously the first thing that caught my attention with this move, (as with many) is the cover! It alone promises magic, mystery, darkness with maybe a hint of fairy tale… and hello! there’s a dragon. This is everything I look for so I couldn’t not read this one!


Seventeen year old Ryleigh Donnovan is certain her life is cursed. Nothing ever goes smoothly, and her first job interview is no exception. An earthquake rocks the building, sending Ryleigh on a frantic search for her younger sister, a search which lands her in the hospital. Terrified they’ll push her for answers she can’t afford to give, Ryleigh flees with a mysterious stranger.

Jackson Maynard is about to be ordained as a Death Dealer, a warrior for the Kingdom of Cymmera, but first he must pass one more test. When he fails to acquire the human girl the prophet has chosen, he’s forced to stand trial for treason. Banished from his realm, he seeks out the girl from the vision, Ryleigh Donnovan, and together they embark on a journey to save his dying kingdom.


 This was definitely one of the most unique and exciting plots I’ve gotten to read, so I really enjoyed that aspect. I won’t give away any details because it’s hard to without spoiling something awesome, but trust me here. Dani Lyn Alexander did a stellar job of creating this world and pulling the reader in. The action starts in chapter one and keep up a nice pace. It’s a pretty short novel and quick read but well done. I never felt bored by the work, nor did I feel as if all my questions were left unanswered and I needed more. It was a good length to tell the story and keep my interest.

Now, our heroine, Ryleigh wasn’t my favorite to me, she took what could have been an amazing read and made it only a good read. My biggest problem was that I felt like she wasn’t seventeen, she didn’t speak like a seventeen year old or act like one. She’s been through a lot though and had to mature quickly so I tried to respect that, but I just couldn’t get over the way she treats her little sister. The constant use of calling her little sister “baby” and treating her like one made it seem more like her little sister was five or six instead of fourteen. And for her part, I didn’t feel like Mia acted fourteen either, she severely played into the “baby” roll acting much more like a fragile child than a young teenager. It was because of this that I found Mia a little annoying, if she had been younger (like 10 or under), I would have thought her character was great, but I had trouble getting past her immaturity and innocence level.

I did like Jackson though. He seemed to act and speak age appropriately and was a fun character. He was a lot more relatable to me than Ryleigh was – which is odd considering he’s not even human. I thought he was an excellent character and frankly I could not get enough of him.

Kai and the King were strange though. While I understand a valued advisor of the king being allowed to get away with a little more than a regular person, I can’t imagine any situation where a king would let anyone spit on his son and push for an execution. I understood that Kai believed Jackson to be inept and his dislike and hatred for Jackson made sense to me, but it was just odd that a king would allow someone to speak to his heir in that manner.

Overall, I’d say it’s a pretty good read worthy or 3 1/2 stars (Only that low because I didn’t like the main character, but the plot and the world created is an easy 5 star rating). It’s short and fast paced and leave you curious to know what happens next. This series has definite potential to be a must read.

The Prelude to Ella & Micha – Jessica Sorensen


Some stories are so beautiful you never want to stop reading them, the story of Ella & Micha is one of those for me. Jessica Sorensen could continue to write their story until the characters are well into their nineties and I would still eat up every word.

Naturally, I was thrilled when it was announced that there would be a prequel to Ella & Micha. I mean, who the heck wouldn’t be. If you’ve followed the series then you’ve experienced the giddiness of love and the pain of heartache right alongside the characters that have earned a permanent place in my heart.

The Prelude of Ella and Micha had to it a certain amount of innocence we have yet to see from these characters, something I frankly couldn’t get enough of. There’s just the right amount of flirtation and innocence between the characters as they begin to realize their feelings for one another.

“You’re such an ass,” I call out after him. “I don’t like that you were looking. At all.” The butterflies in my stomach reveal differently, though.

But of course, it wouldn’t be written by Jessica Sorensen if it didn’t leave you in tears. This is no exception. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a sobbing mess by the end. Really, I needed to continue to the next book to remind myself that there’s more! It’s not over yet!


Making readers cry must be a sort of sadistic pleasure of Mrs. Sorensen, because so does it so gosh darn well and in every novel (or maybe it says something of me as a reader since I keep coming back for more). Also, she does it perfectly and I wouldn’t love reading her work as much as I do if it didn’t elicit such strong emotion andI didn’t get so connected to the main characters.

All in all, you will absolutely not be disappointed in this prequel. It is lovely and perfect and heartbreaking all at once. If you’ve enjoyed the rest of the series, you must pick this one up… if you haven’t gotten around to it yet–well, what are you waiting for? Go! Now! Start the series and fall in love in the same way I did.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway!! The Prelude to Ella and Micha

release_theprelude_bannerToday we’re excited to celebrate the release of The Prelude of Ella and Micha by Jessica Sorensen.
This novella takes place a little less than a year before The Secret of Ella and Micha. It contains glimpses of when Ella and Micha were younger, including a scene of when Micha first fell in love with Ella

I’ll be reviewing this one on Friday! But I can already promise you that you do not want to miss this book!



When Ella Daniels and Micha Scott are fourteen, they make a pact to leave
the small town of Star Grove and create better lives for themselves. The
pact was made as best friends, but over the next six years, their friendship
begins to intensify. Feelings change. Grow. Veer towards love.

But one tragic night changes everything. Hearts get broken. And the future
they had planned changes forever.

*This novella takes place a little less than a year before The Secret of
Ella and Micha. It contains glimpses of when Ella and Micha were younger,
including a scene of when Micha first fell love with Ella.*



As we pull our hands away, I grow nervous because now I have to actually
kiss him. And not just kiss him, but kiss my first guy ever.

“Are you sure you want to do this?” I double check, wiping my palm on my
jeans. “Because I don’t know what I’m doing.”

“I’ll show you.” He’s already leaning in, his intense aqua eyes zeroed in on
my lips.

My heart dances like a crazy person in my chest, and I feel like I’m going
to throw up. “Micha, I …” I trail off, sucking in a huge breath as his lips
touch mine. My fingers tense around the chains and my whole body stiffens
while I try to figure out what on earth I’m supposed to be doing. Clearly
not just sitting here, frozen.

“Relax,” Micha whispers, putting a small bit of space between our lips.

Thinking the kiss is over, I let out a quiet, relieved breath. But the
relief is short lived because, a microsecond later, his head dips forward
and his lips brush against mine again. Only, this time, it’s different. This
time, he slips his tongue into my mouth.

Oh, my God, his tongue is in my mouth.

Micha Scott’s tongue is in my mouth.

And I just touched my tongue to his.

Before I can even register what’s happening, we’re kissing. And I mean full
on French-kissing. It goes on for what feels like minutes, our knees
knocking against each other as Micha plays with my hair and continues to
kiss me. Unfamiliar feelings prickle inside me, ones I’m pretty sure I’ve
never felt before, and that terrifies the living daylights out of me. They
make me feel so…

Out of control.

And Micha is supposed to be my stability.

I’m about to pull away because I can’t take the terror hounding inside me
anymore when a loud crash echoes from nearby and we both jerk apart,
wide-eyed and gasping for air. My cheeks start to burn and even Micha
appears embarrassed, which has never happened before—at least, from what
I’ve seen.

Seconds later, reality crashes over me.

Oh, my God, I just kissed my best friend.

Sink – Scarlett Dawn




Sink (book 2 of The Cold Mark Series) By Scarlett Dawn. 

Let’s start with that cover! Because Daymn! I love it! Scarlett Dawn always has great covers, but I think this one may be my very favorite… yes this is an example of what to expect when you start reading!

Here’s the Official Blurb
The second installment of the bestselling Cold Mark serial launches with Sink, where fear and willpower battle from within…

Braita Valorn’s pampered existence with the Plumas of the west was cut short by her own hand. Being their Soul only complicates matters as she hides inside their enemy’s territory. Danger lurks, and Braita’s lack of knowledge of the planet, Triaz, is now abundantly clear.

Braita’s only strength against the deadly Mian is the blessed sun that lights the day hours.

On a mission to find her best friend, Jax, she must infiltrate the Crank Pit, a brutal complex where Mian enter, only to leave absent a heartbeat. Nothing transpires as planned. Braita’s reckless behavior lands her right into her adversaries’ custody–the Plumas of the east. Will Braita find the answers she’s been searching for…or will she sink further into a sensual world she never thought possible?


We start with Briata living in hiding, specifically living with a giant spider-like creatutumblr_mb6uwvGYCw1qedb29o1_500re. Yeah, this is sooooo not a place you would ever find me! Spiders (and all spider like creatures) are on my stay the hell away from list. Yep. I have a list.

So Briata is sharing a space with this giant bug while waiting for an opening to find Jax. Long story short… she does. Be happy. Right? Wrong. Jax has changed… he’s acting more Mian than Human at the moment! It throws Briata back a step to find Jax living a happy life with the Mian.

In this novel, we don’t gnew-girl-gif-cute-guy-alertet much – or any of Leo and Malik. And I was a little sad about it, but I wasn’t expecting much of them with how the first installment ended. Never fear! We get lots of Phila and Kelleg, who in the first book scared me, but they’re kind of, sort of, pretty damn hot in this installment. You won’t be disappointed with the Plumas of the east!

Briata handles herself amazingly well in this installment. I’m surprised she’s kept it together and sane this long, but she has. She’s strong and fierce, but there’s also a softer and vulnerable quality to her that makes her so very relatable. She’s still so new to this world and doesn’t know how to react and what to think of many things, so she’s scared… and rightly so. But she pushes aside all wariness and stands up for herself and for Jax. I’ve read before that bravery isn’t the absence of fear but rather, it’s acting in spite of fear and by this definition Briata is the bravest heroine I’ve read in a long while.

giphyFair warning though. You may die when you get to the end! That cliff hanger is rough! Perfect, but rough! I want is all and I want it all right now! I feel lost and heartbroken that it ended so quickly. I wast ready for this…. I don’t think I would ever have been ready for it to end. Butttttttt, where she chose to end this one was perfect, it was just enough to make curious and excited and maybe a little sad too. So if you really can’t take a crazy cliffhanger maybe hold off on this one until after she has the whole series out, but either way you’ll love it! Love, love, love it!
