The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnopp

"Ingenious and funny . . . Magnificent." -- Alan Moore, creator of Watchmen and V for Vendetta

Jack Sparks died while writing this book.

It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed.

Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account.

Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed -- until now.

"Wow. Seriously hard to put down." -- M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts


Review: By now you have probably already seen how much I've ranted about how amazing this book is! The characters are so well written, and the way that the plot unravels and the secrets reveal themselves kept my hooked until the very last page - this is a 'stay up until 2am just to finish it' type of book. Jack's mysterious search into the supernatural is a really exciting one, and I was over the moon to learn that there will be more. I seriously hope this book is turned into a film!

Illusion Town by Jayne Castle

A new adventure begins on Harmony…  
 
With its opulent casinos and hotels, the desert city of Illusion Town is totally unique—and will take you on a thrill ride you’ll never forget.

Hannah West isn’t the first woman to wake up in Illusion Town married to a man she barely knows, but she has no memory of the ceremony at all. For that matter, neither does Elias Coppersmith, her new husband. All either can remember is that they were on the run…

With Hannah’s dubious background and shaky para-psych profile, she could have done much worse. The cooly competent mining heir arouses her curiosity—as well as other parts of her mind and body. And even her dust bunny likes him.

But a honeymoon spent retracing their footsteps leads Hannah and Elias into the twisting underground catacombs, where secrets from both their pasts will come to light—and where the energy of their clashing auras will grow hot enough to burn…
Review: love Jayne Castle and the books she writes about Harmony, so I couldn't wait for another adventure - and this one did not disappoint. Hannah and Elias have an undeniable chemistry, but a mystery to how they ended up together, and it's a really gripping ride to find out. Another hit by this author!

What reviewers are saying about The Braille Club
Undone..."

IMG_2972

I think it is difficult for an author to maintain a high standard in any series but especially erotic writing as it is important not to become too repetitive with the sexual adventures of the main characters. This author has definitely succeeded with this book, maintaining the excitement in book 3 of the series by introducing new characters and also quite a dark plot, which culminates in "heart in the mouth moments" in an ending worthy of any thriller! The sensual side of the Braille club story remains strong and there is again great variety in the characters partaking in the pleasures of the club. The descriptions of their sexual adventures are highly erotic, all the more so because the author is always focusing on the emotions of the characters as much as the intimate acts. The quality writing elevates the book well above the average book to be found in this genre and I recommend it strongly to anyone who likes to have their senses aroused."

Your Angel, Me by Cora Kenborn


COMING SOON
What do you do when your dream job becomes a nightmare?
When sassy, but disillusioned, entertainment writer, Phoebe moved to NYC from the south, she never dreamed that being coerced into ghostwriting larger than life rocker, Julian’s autobiography would make her the target of a deranged stalker. Everyone has skeletons in their closet, but rock stars also have obsessive fans. When Phoebe and Julian start to fall for each other, their public romance risks both their lives as obsession is unleashed.
Phoebe Ryan has a dark past she refuses to share, but the scars she bears tell the story without her permission. They reminded her of terrifying moments spent with the monster that haunts her. Ability to trust destroyed, Phoebe tries to maintain focus on her dream of becoming an author, despite the attraction she feels for the sexy rocker, and the baggage that comes with him.
Julian Bale’s heart was broken one drunken night, and it almost ruined him. Weighted down by guilt, he blames himself for an accident he could’ve prevented. Julian will play the game, but swears his hot little ghostwriter will never get that story out of him. As much as he wants her, if he has to choose between his dream and hers, it’s no contest.
After futile bouts of resistance, they give into a forbidden attraction too strong to ignore. Now the secret’s out and it’s made them both targets. A psychotic stalker is determined to have Julian for herself, even if she has to unleash the skeletons of their pasts and eliminate obstacles to do it…including Phoebe. On the brink of stardom, two careers are on the line, and the stakes are high.
Can Phoebe and Julian overcome the past and fight for what’s theirs—or in the end, is the price of fame their own survival?

ON DRY LAND by Rebecca Barber

ON DRY LAND by Rebecca Barber
Rebecca's Banner
——— SYNOPSIS ———
Tyler Andrews, Olympic swimming superstar, has always gotten his way—until he falls in love.
Living in the spotlight was just part of Tyler’s life. Magazines, paparazzi, and being the topic of every sports radio show in Australia…it was either adjust or be driven insane. He’d gotten used to his fame. Hell, he even enjoyed it. But there is one thing he can’t get used to—his girlfriend, Ava Jacobs, hates being the center of the public’s attention.
Ava has lived her life in the shadows—and that’s exactly how she likes it.
But after fulfilling her lifelong dream to have her debut novel published, her world is turned on its head by Tyler’s fame. She writes novels for a reason—it’s a quiet, peaceful profession. The last thing she wants is to be thrown into the spotlight.
Love and life don’t always fit as well as fame and fortune.
Frustrated by Ava’s continuous reluctance to publicly embrace their relationship, Tyler takes every opportunity to make his own declarations—social media posts, visiting her at work, and even crashing her first television promotional appearance, which she grudgingly accepted as part of her publishing deal.
So when something changes and Tyler abruptly pulls away, Ava knows something is terribly wrong.
With Olympic selection looming, Ava’s publisher eagerly awaiting a sequel to her hit novel, and day-to-day life taking a toll, Tyler starts to see that life is much easier in the pool than…
On Dry Land.

Clara Pendleton is a prisoner in her home. Always searching for new places to hide from her uncle, whose drunken attention terrifies and confuses her, she finds a tiny clearing in the back of the property near a disintegrating section of the ivy-covered wall that surrounds the estate.

Gaven Bridge has been sent to Clearwater to live with his Uncle Daniel. Never fitting in, he doesn’t believe he’ll ever meet anyone who understands him. But when he goes out for a walk in the woods, he happens upon a young lady sleeping soundly on a patch of moss.

A deep bond is fostered between them, helping Clara find the courage to change her life. When she finally decides to climb over the ivy wall and out into the world, there is no going back. Will Clara escape her horrible past, or will it destroy the love she and Gaven share?

Excerpt

Tears brimmed in her eyes as she wrapped her arm around him. He tucked her close to his body, holding her. “You’re making me feel good right now,” she whispered. “Touching me like this. Don’t you see?”

When he said nothing, she leaned up to look at him. “Gaven, you’re the reason I got away from there. You talked me into climbing over that wall. I wouldn’t have done it without you. After we met, I couldn’t get you out of my head. I wanted to be with you, and I still do. Thank you. Thank you so much for helping me out of there, for talking me into it. I’d still be there if it weren’t for you.”

“Clara, you’re strong, stronger than you realize.” With a gentle touch, he caressed her cheek, gazing into her eyes. “You could’ve done it without me. If—”

“No, don’t say if. I don’t want to think about that. I just want to be with you.”

His brow crinkled, his eyes betraying his amazement. “How can you want me?”

She smiled through her sorrow, tears rolling down her cheeks. “How can I not?” Leaning forward, she pressed her lips against his, the saltiness of her tears mixing with the sweet taste of his kiss. “I love you, Gaven.”

FORGOTTEN by Samie Sands
AM 13 OUTBREAK SERIES, #2
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Release Date: May 17, 2016
::: SYNOPSIS :::
Every attempt to contain the deadly AM13 virus has failed, leaving humanity on the brink of extinction…The plague is spreading out of control with no cure in sight. Then the government announces its new plan—a sanctuary in an area completely untouched by the infected—as long as you can get there alive and unscathed.
Ethan Watton has managed to survive this long, even with OCD making every day more hellish than it already is…
Ethan’s obsessive-compulsive disorder dramatically affected his life before the infection began. Now he’s desperate to get as far away from the zombie virus as humanly possible. Isolated and afraid, Ethan thinks there is no way in hell he will survive the epidemic.
Alyssa Turner has spent her teenage years prepping for the undead to challenge her zombie killing skills…
Alyssa knows with absolute certainty that she will survive the AM13 virus. She’s read all the books, watched all the films, and done all the research. She’s strong, tough, and a self-proclaimed badass. Any group would be lucky to fight alongside her…until the unthinkable makes her doubt every skill she’s acquired.
Dr. Jones is a scientist who doesn’t understand why he was selected to produce a cure…
Surely there are survivors more experienced in virology than he is. And what will happen to him—and the rest of the species—if he fails? Is the fate of the human race really resting on his shoulders? Or are there others working toward the same goal?
With the zombies multiplying and survivors struggling to make it to the sanctuary, Ethan, Alyssa, and Dr. Jones fight to fulfill their destinies. If they fail, their fate is sealed, and they will join the millions of others who have been…
Forgotten.
 
 
Excerpt:

"My hands are trembling; my mouth dry, the knot in my stomach is so tight it threatens to encase my whole body. I’ve been sitting, frozen in a state of shock for God knows how long. I’m gripping onto the knife so hard its blade is cutting through the top layer of my skin, causing a thin trickle of blood to trail down my fingers.
What the fuck just happened?
My little sister lies dead at my feet, murdered by the kitchen knife in my hands. Killed by me. I can’t even begin to get my head around what I’ve done, she is—was only eight years old. And such a petite, pretty thing. Blonde hair, bright turquoise eyes, chubby cheeks, a sweet smile, the whole works. I glance down at her frail, lifeless body. Bile rises up into my throat as my pulse races at an uncontrollable pace.
What a stupid bitch.
How could she have been so God damn incredibly thick? I told her over and over again that if she went outside, she would die. That there was no other outcome. She’d sit there all meek, tears dripping from the corners of her eyes, listening to my instructions, nodding shyly, appearing to soak up my every word.
But no, she just had to go and do it, didn’t she? She had to find out for herself. Well, she’s learnt her lesson the hard way now. When I caught her, out in the garden, just standing there, I knew. I knew right then in that moment that we were over. That she was as dead as our parents. She turned around and dared to look me in the eyes, with an expression so defiant it actually took me back for a second. Then she stormed past me into the house, refusing to talk to me for days, however much I screamed and yelled. She knew I was frightened, she knew I was worried about losing her, and she just left me to stew. Even crying only resulted in silence, and I never cry. She’s always known how to rile me up, that girl, but I’ve always loved her nonetheless. She’s my sister, which only makes me more pissed off with the bad turn this took.
She eventually stumbled out of her room, pale, almost grey, and barely breathing. My blood ran cold as I automatically gripped onto the knife next to me, just waiting. Her eyes flicked up at me, the familiar colourless irises filled my heart with an overwhelming sadness, which I immediately forced myself to replace with a burning rage. How dare she let this happen to her? I spent all that effort trying to look after her, teaching her the best way to survive and for what? For her to take both our lives into her own hands? For her to allow her stupid decisions to affect my life as well as her own?
When this new version of my sister lunged for me, I sprang into action almost instantly. It didn’t matter to me what or who she’d been, I’ve seen enough zombie films and read enough books to know that her past had gone, her personality was no more.That all she wanted to do now was to eat every scrap of flesh off my bones. Sentiment has no place in the apocalypse, everyone knows that.
I can still see the knife piercing her flesh. The blood…so much blood everywhere. I really had to force the blade to make it go into her brain deep enough to stop her. It isn’t as easy as I’d assumed it would be. When an aggressive cannibal is close to scraping its teeth against your arm and you’re pushing the weapon with all your might, just trying to break through the barrier, there’s a second when you think you have no chance of making it. I was lucky really; I managed to keep my cool to get the job done. That’s the first rule of survival, don’t lose your head. Well, that and always be prepared."
