Secured: free from risk of loss, safe; not likely to fail or give way, stable; to guard from danger.

This pull in my chest, the tug of my beating heart, is stronger than it's ever been. No one could ever compare to Avery. Everything about her makes me only want to experience more, the good and the bad. I'll take whatever I can get because, as I've known from the very beginning, my heart belongs to her.

Why can't she see it?

My beautiful angel, so filled with doubt and worry. I can feel her fears, but for once in my life, I feel helpless. There's nothing that I can do that convinces her, nothing that speaks to her. Why can't she see that she's more than anything I ever dreamed of, that she's perfect for me? This is enough.

Doesn't she see?

I've only ever wanted her.

***

My heart races in my chest, pounding out a rhythm all its own. There's adrenaline pumping all through my veins. It's surging into my system and making me a nervous wreck.

I've waited forever to see my SEAL again. The wait is over, but I'm filled with doubts. Insecurities are hounding me left and right, plaguing me at every turn.

What if I'm not what he remembers, not good enough?

Our time spent in each other's presence was less than a month. One month isn't nearly enough time to get to know a person, is it? My head says no, but my heart screams that I know Kreed Jones better than I know myself. He's spent eighteen long months convincing me of his love, growing my love for him with every letter, every phone call, but is it really enough?

What do we do now that he's back?

I can't be a Navy wife. I'm not strong enough, but how can I ask this selfless man to give up a dream, for me? He's so hard to read. I just want to know where we are heading, what he's thinking, am I still enough.

Am I still enough?

Tethered Cover add-to-goodreads synopsis1

Tethered: the utmost length to which one can go; a range of allowable behavior; at the end of one's tether, i.e. at the end of one's patience or strength.

It's been two miserable months since I last set my eyes on her gorgeous face, seven months since I've heard her voice. Hearing it now, coming from those sweet lips, God, it makes me regret everything, as if I didn't already.

As if I don't torture myself for the mistakes I made. Damn it, if I could only take them back! There's nothing in this world that I wouldn't give to take them back, to undo the hurt I've caused Drew.

As if I could ever forgive myself for the pain.

As if I haven't spent every single second of my miserable fucking life missing those gorgeous, blue eyes looking at me like I'm a damned god, something to be valued and loved.

I think that's what I miss the most.

My bright eyes.

***

That face! God, Trevor Rossi haunts my dreams, my every waking second. I see him in strangers in a crowd, in the park, in the supermarket. It's been so long, a lifetime it seems, but not nearly long enough to forget. I'm not sure an eternity will make me forget the way he made me feel, cherished...adored. There's nothing in this world that I want more than him. Even now, my entire being is always drawn to that man like a compass to true north, but...

He hurt me.

He didn't fight for me. Through all the tears and anguish, the singular thing that destroys my soul is that he never even tried. Was giving up on us really so simple for him? After everything we had accomplished, how far we came, was it just a matter of walking away?

He ripped my already broken heart into a thousand shreds, stomping them against the hardwood of the club.

Despite all the wrenching pain, I want him.

My broken love.

synopsis1

Sealed: to conclude, establish, or settle definitively, excluding the possibility of reversal or loss; to decide irrevocably.

I'm leaving the naive, little girl version of myself behind in Pilot's Point, and good riddance to her. Here, I can be whoever I want, a whole new Avery far removed from the drama of that former self. This one isn't going to be afraid to take risks and go out on a limb or two. I'm done living in a self-proscribed bubble, always scared of the consequences of a poor decision.

There's so many new experiences in Baltimore, new people, new places. I'm entranced by everything here from the snow to the men. There is no shortage of hot guys in Baltimore. They say everything is bigger and better in Texas, but I must beg to disagree.

From the moment Kreed Jones touched his soft lips to my hand, his mouth is the only thing my brain wants to concentrate on. Those sweet lips that refused to kiss mine, refused to take advantage, God, I want them. I want them so badly, but...

Trevor Rossi is sexy as sin, and boy, does he ever know! He's gorgeous; that's a given. The playboy lifestyle he exudes calls to me, drawing me near the flame. I know I'll get burned, but would the end be worth one night in his arms? I am uncertain, still firmly on the fence, and after running into my professor, I'm even more confused.

Dr. James Saunders...James, as he insists...is handsome in his tailored suit, and the beautiful soul that shines behind those glasses of his, well, it's a temptation, for certain. He's off limits, and I think that's the appeal. It's wrong, oh so very, very, wrong. I just can't seem to convince my mind of it.

These three men keep looking at me like I'm a prize, not the game, and for the first time in my life, I'm free of me. I'm not standing in my way, not anymore.

Review of Our Moon by Jennifer L. Allen

Our MoonOur Moon by Jennifer L. Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

**ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review.**

I love any book that can hold my attention through the whole book and make me cry (ugly cry, and that is exactly what Our Moon did.

I absolutely loved Ally and Chase. I knew where their story was leading, not the details, but I kinda guessed and usually when I find a book that is so predictable I don't finish with it, but miss Jennifer L. Allen had me wanting to soak up every detail. I also completely adored the rest of the characters. Alex, Ally's twin, and Trevor, their older brother, were just so sweet, funny, and supportive of Ally and it broke my heart not only with how much she struggled but also how much they did right along with her. oh and we cannot forget about Joey and his wife who were not really big characters but were just as awesome.

This is mostly told from All's POV, but there is a big chunk told from Chase's POV. It hooked me from the beginning and had me holding on through till the end. This book has a HEA, no cliffhangers, and amazing characters.

Banner Ebook Add to Goodreads Synopsis

Love is somewhere near the bottom of Lily Thomas’ list of life goals, right next to competitive eating and underwater cave diving. She’s spent six years pirouetting and pliĆ©ing her way up the ranks of the New York Ballet with her eye on the prize and love in the back seat. But now that Blane Baker -- Lily’s long time crush -- is finally single, she’ll throw her rules out the window without thinking twice.

Reality with Blane isn’t as epic as the fantasy she imagined, and the truth sends her spinning straight into the arms of the man she never knew she’d always wanted.

West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more.

That is, until they do. And that realization changes everything.

 Love Me Like You Do (A Love Me Series)
AUTHOR: Jaime Russell
RELEASE DAY: August 10th, 2015




CLICK HERE TO ADD TO YOUR TBR LIST


Abigail “Abby” Stephens grew up knowing her role. She would always be the ugly duckling or someone’s dirty little secret. She hides behind her computer screen playing her game. No one knew what she looked like just how she played. Abby felt safe, secure and content on living this life, until him.

Cash Hawthorne was given the family business when his parents were killed in a car accident. With the help of his sister, they run a successful hotel which is the premiere spot for weddings. Cash knew that marriage was not in the cards so he had the mentality of “Those who can, do and those who can’t, teach,” that was until he met the one girl who broke through his walls.

Can Cash be the one to show her how beautiful and sexy she is?
Can Abby be the one to show him what happens when love finds you?

Will they be able to overcome her abusive father and his controlling sister?

Come along on this adventure with Abby, Cash and their band of misfits!



“Why don’t we do something tomorrow night? Saturday night is a good night to party and since we are in our 30s, we will all be home by 11.” I said that last part laughing and Rob joined in with me. “So true so true baby girl. Now spill why you had a smile on your face walking into your classroom and I get here, the smile is faded and you had this look of panic on your face.” “You saw that did you?” He just nodded and waited for me to continue. “I met this guy online in the gaming community. We have known each other for a year but more on a personal level the last few months. We have been emailing, Skyping, and text messaging each other a lot.” “I see a but coming on or more to the story.” “There is a but and a huge one at that! We started calling on the phone when we are on breaks from work and at night. We just told one another that we like each other.” “Has Abby decided to start dating? Oh, this is cause for celebration.” Rob clapped his hands in excitement. He knows the hell I went through with all of the boys that I have been with and knows the toll it took on me. “He lives in Florida and he doesn’t know what I look like. What if he doesn’t like what he sees? What if he wants to make me his dirty little secret? What if I like him a lot and he breaks my heart?” I had tears coming down my face. “I felt that same way when I met Aaron. We met online in the same gaming community that you met Cash. I was terrified that he wouldn’t love me, break my heart, or even not feel the same way. I got over that in a hurry because we all need to take a leap of faith in the love department.” Aaron stood about 5'11 and wasn't as muscular as Rob but he was well built. He had brown hair, hazel eyes, and a beard. I wasn't a fan of beards but my God he made it look sexy. He was a doctor, an OB GYN. He had funny stories about how his female patients would flirt with and ask him out on dates but when they saw Rob coming around and he told them that he was in a relationship with him, they were heartbroken. They were not upset about his lifestyle but the fact that he wouldn't date them. Rob was doing well for himself. “I am just an overweight girl who doesn’t deserve love and is always going to be someone’s dirty little secret.” Rob slammed his hand onto the table making me jump. “Why is it that you listen to all the people who are not worthy of you and ignore those who love you the most?” “It is easier to listen to the negative than the positive. The people who love me most will always say what I want to hear not what is true. Do you think I like being this way? Do you think I like doubting every man who comes into my life? Do you think I don’t want the husband, children, and know the feeling of what true love is? Until you have been subjected to this way of thinking all your life, don’t get mad at me for feeling like this, Rob.” “Honey, I am not mad at you but just disappointed. You are so beautiful and sexy that any man,” I went to open my mouth to say something and he held up his hand, “who is deserving of you. I wish you could see it. When you meet the man who is worthy of you, he will show you and you will believe it. I think you should keep getting to know Cash and see where things go. Keep an open mind. If all else fails, think “What would Rob say?” I am very wise, just so you know. I laughed, “Wise huh, maybe a wise-ass.” He feigned shock by my words.

Excerpt

**Disclaimer: This content is unedited and subject to change**

Copyright © Jessica Ingro

“You okay over there?” It looked like he had ants in his pants.

“I’m hard as a fucking rock thinking about fucking you.” He growled low in his throat. The sound was so sexy, and mixed with his words, a new rush of wetness settled between my legs.

“I want that,” I responded a bit breathlessly.

“Yeah?”

I nodded and swallowed hard when his hand resumed petting me through my pants, but this time higher. Each pass of his finger against my swollen lips made me want to moan. I craved skin on skin contact with this man something fierce.

“Jax?” I breathed out when he started doing circular motions that had me widening my legs.

“Mmmmm,” he mumbled against the skin of my neck as his lips tormented me there.

“Can I touch you?” My hand tentatively reached out and pressed against the bulge straining behind his zipper. His hips rose up, pressing him more firmly into my hand.

Removing his hand from between my legs, resulting in a small protest slipping from my lips, he deftly undid his button and zipper. He pulled himself from the confines of his damp jeans and placed my hand on his rather large erection. He was hot, silky, and smooth. Sheer perfection in my hand.

He growled in the back of his throat as I softly explored him. His head fell back on the headrest and his hands tightened into tight fists on his thighs. I chanced a quick glance over at him. A look of pain flitted across his features, but when he shouted, “Holy fuck,” as I swiped my hand over the head, I knew it was an exquisite pain he was feeling.
