Review

Kelly Anne is back!
Those are the first spoken words of this heartfelt contemporary romance, Helping Her Remember written by Kate Carley and published by CreateSpace Publishing.
I am a sucker for a second chance at love stories especially if I know it led to an HEA at the end.

You see, several years ago, Dylan and Kelly had a world wind courtship that ended with Kelly leaving town under mysterious circumstances. Leaving Dylan hurt and betrayed. And now after seven years of trying to put his life back together, Kelly Anne has returned.

Kelly Anne returned to established herself at her dream job. She knew that sooner or later she had to run into her old flame. She was hoping for later. Because, even though she was hoping to run into him, there are some hard truths and secrets that need to be settled and told. Which may push Dylan back into the bottle.

Helping Her Remember was an okay book. It had a nice pace and somewhat enjoyable characters. I didn’t really get the chance to binding with the two main characters as I like.

Though a second chance at love, the subject matter that this author chose to surround the plotline around was a heartfelt one and this author could relate to personally.
Now the only negative thing I have to say is this book just abruptly ended. But, not without a last-minute drama scene among the two characters.

about

Kelly’s back.

How can two simple words make Dylan Bronstad’s heart ache and sing at the same time?

Even seven years ago, Kelly Anne Leeson had possessed that power. Back then, all Dylan wanted to do was drink and make love to her. Really, it was no wonder she’d climbed out of his bed and walked out of his life, leaving him with nothing but a nasty hangover and the lonely memories of their time together.

Today, Dylan’s life is on track. He’s sober with the support of his family and his tight-knit group of friends. But Kelly could derail all he’s worked to accomplish. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to stay away from her.

Lured by the offer of her dream job, Kelly returns home to Crawford Falls and the friends she’d abandoned a lifetime ago. Mending those broken relationships will require some honest answers and a fair amount of forgiveness.

But facing Dylan will take a lot more—like maybe a suit of armor to protect her battle-weary heart and the secret she fears she’ll never be able to keep.

While Kelly searches for a way to maintain the safe life she’s created for her son, Dylan works to remind her of the relationship they once had.

Just as they rekindle their relationship, secrets and half-truths threaten to destroy everything.

Official Cover Reveal: The Alamist Queen

Parents to four wonderful children, Jerry and Stephanie Jaeger enjoy working together as J.S. Jaeger to write uplifting, entertaining stories. 


Jerry overcame bullying to earn his black belt in Kempo Karate. He served as a special agent for the FBI and currently works as a prosecutor. 


Stephanie ran her own accounting practice for several years before turning her focus to writing Scrolls of Zndaria with Jerry. 


Together, they are excited to bring readers of all ages into the magical world of Zndaria.

After tragedy strikes her kingdom, the king of Taycod welcomes Cenaya as one of his own. When she uncovers the secrets of her new family, her perceived perfect life begins to crumble. Now she must choose: ignore this new-found knowledge and continue living her spoiled existence or find the strength to become the leader her people need.
She must first decide who to trust. Can she rely on her mysterious father or the dazzling royal family? What of the alluring man who speaks of spreading peace across the land? And then there’s Nathanial McGray, a young man who appears out of nowhere. Her decision will determine freedom or bondage, for her and for the world of Zndaria.

 
First, let’s take a look inside the book 
with this Excerpt
 

Young Cenaya’s eyes flew open. A bulky swamp creature stood over her bed. Thick leather armor covered its frog-like body. Her scream stuck in her throat. Moonlight beaming through Cenaya’s open window shined off the grob’s bulging, bloodshot eyes.

Run! Cenaya’s mind screeched. Her five-year-old body didn’t move.


The grob’s forked tongue flicked through crooked, decaying teeth. Drool dripped past its thin, green lips onto Cenaya’s nose and rolled down her cheek. The putrid smell made her stomach churn. Grabbing her by the neck, the grob lifted her away from her silky bed sheets.


Cenaya pulled at its slimy fingers. She couldn’t breathe. Soft footsteps entered her room. 


With a shriek, the creature released its grip. Cenaya fell to the ground and rolled away. The grob toppled over.


Cenaya felt a rush of relief. She recognized the arrow sticking out from the back of the grob’s armor.


And now for the 
full front-to-back Cover

SHATTERED ROADS
The Skyfire Saga Book 1
by Alice Henderson
Genre: Science Fiction/Dystopian
In a future laid waste by environmental catastrophe, one woman in a shielded
megacity discovers a secret hidden within—and the nightmare of what lies
beyond.
Her designation is H124—a menial worker in a city safeguarded against the
devastating storms of the outer world. In a community where consumerism
has dulled the senses, where apathy is the norm and education is
a thing of the past, H124 has one job: remove the bodies of citizens when
they pass away in their living pods.
Then one night, H124’s routine leads
her into the underground ruins of an ancient university. Buried
within it is a prescient alarm set up generations ago: an
extinction-level asteroid is hurtling toward Earth.
When her warning is seen as an attempt
to topple the government with her knowledge of science, H124 is
hunted—and sent fleeing for her life beyond the shield of her
walled metropolis. In a weather-ravaged unknown, her only hope lies
with the Rovers, the most dangerous faction on Earth. For they have
continued to learn. And they have survived to help avert a terrifying
threat: the end of the world is near.

EXCERPT:

FINN

“I’m ready,” she finally says, breaking the awkward silence.

“Right,” I say. “Let’s go.”

I wave her forward towards the door but she shakes her head and juts her chin out. “You first,” she says.

Which is weird. But then again, this whole fucking night has been weird. “Sure,” I say, walking to the door and opening it up. But when I look over my shoulder, she still hasn’t moved. “Issy? You coming?”

She stares at me again. The seconds tick off. I start to feel uncomfortable, like she’s onto me. She knows I’m not a player in whatever game this is she’s playing. But just when I’m about to open my mouth and try to explain, she steps forward, and I relax.

“Where are we going?” she asks.

“Silver Springs,” I say.

“What? That’s like two hours away!”

Shit. Is it? I have no idea where Silver Springs is. Fuckin’ Declan was supposed to text me the address, so I check my phone, find the missed message, then press the maps app to get directions.

“How will I ever be back in time for masterclass prep tomorrow?”

What does she think is happening tonight? It’s fuckin’ killing me. But I can’t ask so I lie. “What we’re doing in Silver Springs won’t take long, don’t worry. You can sleep on the way there and the way back. I’ll keep you safe.”

“You keep saying that,” Issy says. “But I don’t need your protection, Finn. I need—”

But she stops. She was just about to tell me what she needs and… goddammit. I really hate this game we’re playing. “You need what?” I prompt her, hopeful.

“I need what was promised,” she says.

“Why?” I ask, because asking what was promised feels like the wrong move.

“You don’t need to know why,” she says, walking over to the framed magazine cover to straighten it out on the wall. She turns to me. “You just need to deliver.”

Deliver. O-kaaay. “Shall we?” I ask, standing just outside the door.

“Sure,” she says, and joins me on the front stoop, stopping to lock her door from the outside.

I take her bag—which is pretty light, and that impresses me. I appreciate a light packer—and stick it in the trunk, then open the passenger side door and wave her in.

“Rules say no civilians in the front,” she says.

“I’m gonna bend the rules tonight for you, Issy. I don’t like the idea of you riding in the back.”

“Why?”

“Why are you so suspicious of me all of a sudden? I mean, we just had a good time. What’s up?”

“You’re just acting weird.” But she gets in the front seat. So I close her door, walk around the car, and get in my side.

“It is kinda weird, right?” I start the car, check the directions on my phone, and then pull away from the curb as she thinks about that. “I mean… don’t you think this is weird?”

“Which part?” she says. “What I asked for? Or that I let you fuck me?”

“Let me?” I laugh, again. “Begged me, Issy.”

“Whatever,” she says, waving her hand in the air. “I never beg. I just take what I want.” But I catch a small smile out of the corner of my eye.

“So no, not too weird,” I lie.

“Just a little weird?” she asks, still smiling. “It’s not a strange request. I looked it up.”

“You did?” I ask. Fuck, I’m dying to know what she thinks we’re doing tonight.

“Yes. I found a study online that cited almost eight percent of the female population fantasizes about it.”

I almost stop the car. Like my foot taps the brake, and we both jerk forward before I realize what I’m doing and correct.

“What the fuck was that?” Issy asks.

“I… uh… there was a cat running across the road. I didn’t want to hit it.”

Did she imply what I think she implied? Are we playing a sex game?

“Is this a big place?” she asks in my ensuing silence.

“Nope,” I lie again. Well, is it really a lie if there’s no place? I mean, we are going somewhere, but the safe house in Silver Springs is obviously not what she’s fantasizing about.

“How many people?” she asks. And when I look over at her, she’s biting her lip like she’s nervous.

Fuck. I have nothing for that. “You’ll see,” I say, getting onto the I-70 freeway that will take us up into the mountains.

“Are you curious?” she asks.

“Very.” I laugh.

“About which part?”

“Uh…”

“I mean, I know we’re not supposed to talk about this or it’ll ruin the illusion, but I’m sorta nervous and I can’t help it.”

Jesus Christ. Pull yourself together, Finn Murphy! You’re a goddamned FBI agent. You’re a motherfucking force to be reckoned with. This woman has you totally off your game! Step the fuck up and play!

I heed the internal monologue and collect myself. “I’m curious about the whole thing, honestly.”

“Because it’s weird?”

“I thought we already decided it was normal?”

“It is normal. Well, it’s normal to fantasize about it. I’m not sure how many women actually go through with it, so that’s… a little bit unusual. But you know what they say?”

“What do they say?” I’m dying. Fucking dying to know what they say!
