Ensnared The Life of Anna Part 4 by Marissa Honeycutt

Title: Ensnared

                                                    Series: (The Life of Anna #4) 



Everything Anna cared about is lost; the only thing left is Devin. She gives him all of herself, but even that seems too little.
As Anna realizes the truth of her Master's desire, she must decide what it is that she truly wants.

There is a subculture within our own world that you’ve only heard whispers of. The conspiracy theorists wish they knew Anna’s story. What the conspiracy theorists think they know is only disinformation, put out there to keep them from the real story.

This is not a stand-alone novel. This is the fourth of five novels that tell Anna’s story.

This book is for grownups. This book is not for people who are easily offended, get nightmares easily, or have difficulty reading books about tough subjects. I do not glorify bad things, but bad things do happen to my poor characters. This is not your typical love story. My heroine does not fall in love and live happily ever after... at least not like the typical heroine. There is a happily ever after, but it is a long, painful journey to that end.
This book will likely offend you. This book might make you cry; it might make you throw up. It is a dark book. As my friend, Heidi, said, “It’s dark. It gets darker. It gets even darker, and then it gets even more darker. And then, just when you think it can’t get any darker, it does.”
But, don’t worry. I take you to the deep end gradually. ;)
There are many sexual situations in this series of books. People die. People get hurt. Things aren’t always truly the way they appear. The antagonist isn’t just a bad guy; he’s EVIL. My heroine’s worldview is skewed; things that may appall you are perfectly normal to her.
Any violence in this book is non-gratuitous and crucial to the plot and character development.
Do not read this if you are under the age of consent in your country. Do not get angry if the subject or actual book upsets you. If you're reading this, you've been warned.

Where the Road Takes Me by Jay Mclean- Book Tour

Meet Blake & Chloe in Where the Road Takes Me
in this new coming of age novel by
Jay McLean

Chloe has one plan for the future, and one plan only: the road. She’s made a promise to herself: don’t let anyone in, and don’t let anyone love her. She’s learned the hard way what happens if she breaks her rules. So she’s focused on being invisible and waiting until she can set out on the road—her dream of freedom, at least for a little while.
Blake Hunter is a basketball star who has it all—everything about him looks perfect to those on the other side of his protective walls. He can’t let anyone see the shattered pieces behind the flawless facade or else all his hopes and dreams will disappear.
One dark night throws Chloe and Blake together, changing everything for Blake. For Chloe, nothing changes: she has the road, and she’s focused on it. But when the so-called perfect boy starts to notice the invisible girl, they discover that sometimes with love, no one knows where the road may lead.

Excerpt #1
Chloe lifted her gaze and locked it with mine. She shook her head again and groaned, “Fine.” Then she took off her shirt.
My jaw dropped.
My hands had touched her bare skin, the curve of her hips, and her tiny waist, but I’d seen her body only once, when she was in a bikini, and that had been for only a minute. But that was nothing compared to seeing her like this. Up close. So close her sports bra–covered breasts were just under my nose.
“Blake?” she whispered.
I struggled to take my eyes off her chest, but I finally made it to her face. She had her hair tied up in a messy knot on top of her head, like she often did. But a few strands were stuck on her neck and on her face . . . and a little sheen of sweat covered her arms and her stomach, her chest, her breasts . . .
“Blake,” she repeated, and I trailed my eyes back to hers again.
She pouted before she said, “Give me the ball?”
I shook my head and hid the ball behind my back.
She pouted again. “Please?” she whispered. Then a hint of a  smile broke through.
“Are you trying to seduce me into giving you my ball?”

GARRETT ( Cold Fury #2) Sawyer Bennett

Garrett (Cold Fury Hockey, #2)Garrett by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Garrett Samuelson star hockey player with Carolina Cold Fury is the King of the One Night Stand. It's not that he doesn’t want relationships its that no one woman has ever caught his attention long enough to inspire him to commit. When he meets Olivia, she knows his reputation, but she wants him and way. His attraction for her is something he can’t deny. She thinks its for one night, but Garrett has other plans. He never expected a woman to ever be so important to him, but Olivia does it for him without even trying.
Olivia Case’s life has just taken a negative turn. She recently found out she has cancer and she needs to start treatment right away. Figures this new development in her life would coincide with meeting the gorgeous Garrett Samuelson hockey player extraordinary with a man whore reputation . Normally he’s the kind of guy Olivia would steer clear of not being one for casual sex. But in her current circumstances a scorching one night stand might be just what the doctor ordered. Little does she know Garrett has decided he wants to see her again and again making it hard for her not to fall for him. Can she tell him the truth? Will she be able to take it if he leaves knowing she might not make it?

This is the second book in the Cold Fury Hockey series by Sawyer Bennett, ” Alex” is the first book. You do not have to read the first book to get into Garrett’s story, though I have purchased Alex dying to know how he and Sutton got together. Garrett and Olivia’s story really surprised me, in the beginning the first few chapters hit me with a bang. Garrett starts off as a typical hot athlete, off the charts charming and jumping from bed to bed. He immediately meets Olivia and sparks fly. Garrett is feeling emotions for a woman he never thought he would feel for anyone. I liked reading Garrett’s POVs as he begins to realize his feelings for Olivia. When he starts to help her through her issues my heart melted. Having recently dealt with the death of my sister to cancer, it was tough to read about Olivia’s treatments at times, though a different cancer than my sister had the emotions surrounding the disease are the same. I felt the writer did an excellent job depicting the difficulties of dealing with chemotherapy, tests and doctors appointments. As well has how the disease affects the loved ones of the person who is sick.

The background characters of Olivia’s and Garrett’s friends were a heartwarming and fun addition to the story. Olivia’s mother and bestie were a hoot. Then when tragedy strikes for one of their own the Cold Fury guys rally around him. This book had me really battling a lot of emotions, I laughed, I cried, I ugly cried and I smiled. A really great romance, with hot athletes, steamy sex scenes and heart wrenching drama. I am very much looking forward to going back to read Alex as welling as getting my hands on Zack the third book in the series.

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
