Strangers- Cover Reveal

Strangers by A.L. Parks

Bereaved bride Abby Clark is tortured by visions of the fatal crash that took her fiancĂ©e on their wedding day.  She succumbs to a dark existence where loneliness, sadness and nightmares dwell; until handsome, brooding Bryce Holden walks through the door of her favorite coffee shop, wearing the same cloak of despair and grief.  Abby discovers in Bryce someone who understands love and loss, and soon their close friendship grows into a deep love.  But ghosts make strange bedfellows, and Abby is forced to battle the tormenting images that continue to haunt her, and confront the ethereal presence of a beloved wife to protect her future with Bryce.

Forceful Negotiations (Carmine Club, #1) 
3 of 5 stars false
Why would a former beauty queen and ex-wife of a billionaire become a pimp? Sending the demigod of lust, Eros, to find out why Willa Davis Seachrist is running a secret sex club seems like the solution to Saint Peter’s problems.
Teague Tillis comes to Carmine House in search of a man to make her fantasies come true. When former prosecutor Cam Calloway wins the bid for Teague, her fantasy challenges everything he believes, but if he can't satisfy her, conniving Willa will offer her to his nemesis.
Welcome to Carmine Club. The cost to join is a price you've already paid.


****I was given a copy of this book through NetGalley for my honest review****
Warning: This book contains graphic scenes depicting consensual rape fantasies and public sex acts.
Teague Tillis is about to have her fantasy come true. She's always had these desires she's been taught by society to be ashamed of, to hide from the lovers in her life because it's taboo. Taking control she accepts her best friend's offer to be auctioned off as part of her aunt's venture known as Carmichael club. The twist? The man who wins Teague at the auction has to act out her fantasy.
Cam Calloway is fascinated with the blonde in the silver mask. He may not be able to see her face but something about her draws him to her, she's the only one he touches, the only one he's interested in bidding on. Beginner's luck or fate that his number gets chosen out of the winning bidders?
However, once he reads her fantasy can the guy who's always lost the girl due to being the "nice guy" and who used to make a living putting men that do the same thing behind bars, give her what she needs? Add a humorous Eros(cupid) who has been sent to earth to help Willa, Carmichael club's founder and it becomes an interesting start to a series with loads of potential.
In general this book was interesting but parts felt random, the flow of the writing could have improved. The whole Eros (cupid) element felt just there to lead into the rest of the series, causing you to scratch your head. There wasn't a ton of story but the characters were well developed. I will pick up the next book in the series, but it won't be something I can't live without.


Lick (Stage Dive, #1) 
 4 of 5 stars false 
Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.


****Momentum through NetGalley gave me a copy of this book for my honest review****
Oh Vegas, "Sin City". Evelyn Thomas has just become a cliche. She's woken up the morning after her 21st birthday with a stranger, a ring, and the hangover from hell. Bonus points that the stranger is sexy, half naked and tattooed. Trying to keep from throwing up on him any more than she already has, she tries to piece together her black hole of a night, only to be met with hostility when he realizes she remembers nothing.
Rock & Roll's favorite son and guitarist of the popular band Stage Dive, has just started what he thinks will be a great future. David's met a genuine girl, the type he usually doesn't come across in his daily life as a famous person. The problem? She doesn't remember him or anything that happened.
So much fun, I finally got to enjoy another rock star book that was worth reading. The characters were real. This could have been a real band you read about on their fan site and the tabloids. Ev was a blast to read about. There was drama of course, but it has a great ending that doesn't leave you hanging till the next book, but also introduces band mates that make you excited for it's release.
