About YOU OWN ME:
It had always been her…

Ten years had passed since the doors slammed shut behind Decker Calhoun, taking away his freedom, but more importantly, locking him away from Elizabeth Waters, the only woman he’d ever loved—the woman he’d given up everything for.

The day he was sentenced, he’d looked at her and said, No regrets, Lizzie. But he lied, because he did have one. Although he’s been out of jail for three years now, he was a year too late.

Lizzie never knew how he felt and just months before he was released, she found somebody else and it’s too late. Or maybe not. It seems that Lizzie’s boyfriend wants an open relationship and two can play at that game. Now all Decker has to do is convince Lizzie that he’s the better man…and has been all along.

Excerpt: 
Snarling, he tore his mouth from hers and jerked away, sitting at the far end of the futon. With hands that shook, he rubbed at his face. Son of a bitch.

“Lizzie…fuck. I’m sorry.”

A harsh intake of breath reached his ears and the last thing he wanted to do was face her, but that was what he made himself do.

The minute he turned his head to look at her, she surged up off the futon, moving across the small office to stand by her desk, head bowed, arms wrapped around herself. “Get out,” she said, her voice quiet. Too quiet. 

“Lizzie?”  Wincing, he climbed off the couch. “Look, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have—”

“Don’t.”  The word was pure steel and it caught him off-guard, for a second.

But just a second. Because while Lizzie was soft and sweet, under all of that, she was steel. She always had been—he’d figured that out when he hadn’t chased her off within the first few hours of meeting her. Now, as she turned and looked at him, tears glinted in her wide, dark brown eyes, but nothing could hide the fury, and the hurt, in those eyes.

Fuck, he thought miserably. Rising from the couch, he lifted a hand only to let it fall uselessly to his side.

“Lizzie, I’m sorry. I didn’t—”

“I don’t want to hear it!” she shouted, cutting him off. He had to duck to avoid the little potted orchid she sent flying his way. And damn, she still had a good throwing arm.

“Do you hear me?” she said, her voice starting to shake. “I don’t want to hear. I get it, okay?  Nobody wants me. No fucking body. I’m fine as a doormat for Noel as long as I let him treat me like shit, but he doesn’t want me. Neither do you. I get it. Okay?”

Stunned shock rippled through him as she shoved her tumbled hair back from her flushed face. Her eyes shot sparks as their gazes clashed. “I get the point. You’re a fucking hound dog and I know that. But I’m not good en—”

He caught the rest of her words with his mouth and when she went to shove him back, he caught her wrists, too. Sinking his teeth into her lower lip, he backed her up against her desk. “Not want you?” he muttered against her mouth. “Are you blind?”

She tried to turn her head and he tangled a hand in her hair, yanked it back. Her pupils flared, her mouth falling open on a startled moan. “Give me your mouth, Lizzie,” he said and then, without waiting, he took it, thrusting his tongue deep.

She bit him and he responded by letting her wrists go and catching her hips, boosting her up with one arm while he used the other to swipe out against her desk, clearing it with one careless gesture. Lizzie worked her hands between them and although he didn’t break away from her mouth, part of him held his breath—waited.

When she reached up and tangled her hands in his hair, he snarled in savage satisfaction.

Lying her down on her desk, he broke away. Her hands clutched at him and he caught them, shifted her wrists to one hand and pushed them up over her head. Then, as he held her gaze, he reached down and freed the top button of the top she wore. With each successive button, he bared more and more skin, pale, pretty skin, lush curves, her breasts cupped by silk and lace and his brain almost exploded as he flicked a look from her face downward to study those ripe curves.

“My hands are shaking,” he said, struggling to keep his voice from doing the same as he trailed his fingers along the delicate lace design of her bra, watching as a soft blush pinked her flesh and started to climb upward. “I’ve dreamed about touching you a thousand times and now I am and my hands are shaking…”

 Now he looked at her, watched her throat work as she swallowed.

“And you think I don’t want you.”

Warped by Alicia Taylor and Natalie Townson



Title: Warped - The Manipulation Trilogy Book Two
Authors: Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson
Genre: Romantic Suspense.

Synopsis:
I won’t be caught off guard again. I won’t let them win. They played the first round and won. Now it’s time for me to even the score. Damon and Leona will pay for their twisted games. Leona is first.
His touch repulses me. 
His fake affection disgusts me. 
He sickens me.
I need to get my head in the game. I need to be smart and break their bond to more easily crush them. Damon is clever. He knows what he’s doing. He’s been playing the game long enough.
He’s twisted. 
I’m warped.
It’s time to finally end this. 
Time to finally win.




Excerpt:

“What the fuck is your problem?” Leona ignores me and continues to leave with her friends, but I won’t let it go that easy. I know her type, they think they can walk all over people and no one will stand up to her. She’s got another think coming if she thinks I’ll let it pass.

“Leona, I asked you a question. What the fuck is your problem?” 

She turns towards me, her face surprising me. I expect anger but instead she has a sickly sweet smile on her face as she stalks towards me.

“Problem? There's no problem Ella. For there to be a problem you would have to mean something, but you're nothing. You’re insignificant like all the other little bitches Damon picks up. Do you really believe you're that special Ella? Do you think the words he mutters to you he hasn’t muttered to someone else before you? What makes you think you're any different than all the others before?” She lets out a condescending laugh, “What about Abigail? Oh, you met her didn’t you?” She acts surprised before sneering again, “At your romantic little meal. Ring any bells?” She doesn’t give me a chance to answer. “You will be gone before you know it.”

She turns to leave again, thinking she’s put an end to me. I don’t fucking think so. What she said cut deep but I won’t let her see that. I won’t let her know how much her words can hurt me. She’ll get a kick if she knows she’s keyed into one of my biggest fears. 

Am I just one in a long list of many that Damon plays with? Or is what we have real?
I am fucking furious. Who does this bitch think she is? My inner bitch is coming out to join the party.
“You're so fucking jealous, aren't you Leona? You would give anything to be with him, but he doesn't want you. Every time you throw yourself at him, he'll turn you down, because you’re the one who’s nothing to him. He feels sorry for you, that’s all. It’s nothing more.” 

A livid Leona steps toward me but Lacy holds her back. If I wasn’t pregnant I would slap her right across that scheming face of hers, but I have something better up my sleeve to hit her with.
“Don’t you think we know Damon a little more that you?” Michelle pipes up, looking smug. “We’ve known him a lot longer. You’re nothing but a new toy to Damon and he gets bored with his toys very quickly,” she finishes on a smirk, making me want to claw her fucking eyes out.

I laugh at her. “Is that so? Well I happen to know different.” I start to walk past them to exit the toilets but Sharn steps in my way and speaks for the first time.

“We’ve not finished with you yet. You need to back away from Damon before he breaks your heart. I can see he already owns it. You wouldn’t take up for him like this if you didn’t love him. We’ve been around longer, will continue to be around long after you’ve been kicked to the curb.” She pushes her face close to mine, invading my personal space, no doubt to intimidate me. “Damon is Leona’s. He will always be Leona’s.”

I raise a brow at her arrogant comment. “Funny that,” I look at Leona, “he told me you’re nothing more than a tag along. An acquaintance that never leaves. He only deals with you because of your parents being good friends with his.” I smirk when I see shock hit her eyes. “Yeah, that’s right. You’re nothing more than a family friend.” I look back at Sharn, who is still invading my personal space. “Now if you’ll excuse me, I have better places to be.”

Review: Twelve by T.M. Franklin (MORE Trilogy #3)


Description:

Ava Michaels is gifted, powerful, and — whether she likes it or not — part of a plot to take over the world.

It’s only been a few months since Ava Michaels discovered she has ties to an ancient people living in the shadows of the human world, despite their superior gifts and abilities. A select few don’t like hiding, however, and think it’s time to take control. 

Now Ava’s caught up in a conspiracy in the works before she was even born. In fact, her birth was an integral part of the plan. She’s one of the Twelve, the most powerful Race ever created, and they were created for a purpose.

Turns out, Ava doesn’t like being told what to do.

All she wants is to start a new life with her boyfriend, Caleb Foster, but before they can even think about that, they must join forces with former enemies, seek out some powerful new friends, and figure out what exactly the Twelve, and their power-hungry leader, are up to.

Then, they have to find a way to stop them.


My Thoughts:
An excellent ending to the series. In this book we finally have the big showdown involving the Council, the Guardians, and the Rogues. Ava and her siblings play a major part. An exciting installment with action and suspense, but a bit of humor as well. I love the characters. Just fun to read and had me until the very last page. I loved this book and this series and highly recommend. Suitable for young adult readers but fun for adults, too.

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: n/a
