INFLICT

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: April 3, 2017
Genres: Adult, Erotic, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime


COVER CREDITS

Cover Designer: Popkitty Design

SYNOPSIS:


As the son of an Irish mobster, Connor O’Neil spent his boyhood hiding from the horrors of his own home. His one reprieve was a girl he knew only as Evelyn, but even she was taken away. As a man, Connor is determined to stay away from his father’s business. With Sean, participation is not a request, but a demand. The truth is, Connor might be more like the evil he’s trying to hide away from than he would like to admit.

And he’s already spent years trying to cover the scars left over from the pain.

A chance encounter puts the lost girl from his past back on his path, and he no longer has a choice but to face the darkness he’s been ignoring for years.

Evelyn. Sasha. Slave.

She doesn’t really know who she is anymore.

Or maybe she does, and she doesn’t want to tell.

She isn’t the same as she once was—now a thing to be kept and maintained, shuffled from owner to owner until it was her time to go. She only became Connor’s because he took her when he knew she wasn’t his to take.

Except she isn’t Connor’s at all …

And he can’t keep her hidden forever.

~Inflict is a Standalone Romance with graphic depictions of violence, sexual scenes, dark elements and a HEA. It is not recommended for those under the age of 18.

EXCERPT: INFLICT by Bethany-Kris

“You must think I’m stupid,” she whispered.

No, he certainly did not.

She was well spoken. She had a mind of her own and a questioning stare that told him there was a hell of a lot hidden beneath her exterior. He was not going to underestimate her in anything.

“I don’t,” Connor said.

“Then answer my question. You’re a man, so what do you want from me? They always want something; from the very start, each one has wanted something. I’ve filled a void, been used to enjoy, and even to be taught. I’ve been treated like a plaything to some, and like a sweetheart to others. What is your move?”

Connor damn near choked on his next question trying to get it out, “And how many has there been?”

She didn’t even think about it. “Seven, over the years.”

“All Russian?”

“The first one was not; he had a wife who liked me, and had three boys of her own, but no girls. He was just there to keep me, until I was passed on again. I was eleven when the wife left—I was passed on the next day.”

“What then?”

That spark of fire was back in her eyes. “What do you think?”

“I think you’ve misunderstood my intentions,” Connor murmured.

Evelyn tipped her head to the side, and her gaze dropped to his groin again. “Did I also misunderstand being in your bed, what you were doing in the shower, or the sounds you made at the end?”

Cac.

She had spied on him.

“I have to call that friend,” Connor said, refusing to indulge her further. “You should find something to wear that covers you.”

“I don’t think you mind.”

I don’t, but I won’t be held accountable for reacting in an unpleasant way to an arsehole move from my guest.”

Evelyn’s lips curved into a sly, sensual smile.

It was shocking.

Beautiful, but shocking.

Men may have used her for what they wanted, but he fully believed there was a part of Evelyn that was more dangerous than she let on.

“That’s a new one.”

Connor’s jaw clenched. “What is?”

“Jealousy. I’ve never had one that was jealous before.”

Perfect. Just feckin’ grand.

“I’m not … one—an owner, whatever—of those,” Connor said, more irritated than before. “You will do well to figure that out and fast, Evelyn. You will do well to stop trying to figure out what game you need to play to please me; you’re not here for that.”

“Then why am I here?”

Honesty was the best policy …

“I don’t know yet.”

He finished getting dressed, and the whole time, Evelyn never left him in private. As he passed her by to make that phone call and get something to eat for breakfast, her soft voice stopped him again.

“But why don’t you touch me?” she asked. “Even those who were not terrible, still wanted that from me.”

Connor looked down at her, and found she was watching him, curious and unashamed. “I told you why, love. It’s not for me to take, and if you want that, then you can ask for it.”

“I don’t understand, and I’m not sure what to do or how to act for you, if you want nothing from me. I’m not sure who to be here.”

“That’s a sad idea, isn’t it? That you have to be something at all, and not just a person, a woman.”

Her gaze dropped. “I don’t know anything different.”

Revenge, mayhem, and loss are all I know.
I am the lone man—I am the wanderer.

Celeste
Our young love was marred by violence.
Our guilt destroyed us, fate tempted us but, it was he who broke us.
They say time heals all, but all time did was dull the ache of his abandonment.

In another life, we were everything to one another.
In this life we’re strangers.

#THENOMADSERIES





Cobra and Celeste quickly have become one of my favorite romance couples.
This is a couple that when life keeps throwing obstacles at them they push through and come out the other side.

In this second installment of the Nomad series, Janine once again waves her magic writers wand and brings us a heart-stopping action-packed loved story. Cobra and Celeste's story is not for the faint of heart, it's gritty and unapologetic. Cobra is a badass biker seeking retribution at the cost of his own happiness. Leaving Celeste his childhood sweetheart and love of his life behind he will wander the world searching for the man who torn his family apart when he kidnapped his twin sister. The quest for revenge consumes him, letting Celeste go was for her own good. They meet again and passions ignite in one night of hot sex and tearful goodbyes. But it's not over folks...no the universe and Ms. Bosco have plans for this couple that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

When they meet again years later, secrets are revealed and promises are made. Cobra and Celeste were born to be together forever. The true definition of soulmates. Cobra realizes quickly that he doesn't want to let Celeste go again. He wants to leave retribution behind and have her in his arms. But our girl Celeste isn't going to just fall at his feet, she makes him work for it. I adored her and I want to be her friend! She was awesome.

Janine really hit a grand slam with this one. Wanderer will bring you in and never let you go. At times you will cry, other times the steam coming off this couple will be too hot to handle. I felt every emotion possible while reading this book and I loved every minute of it.

If you are a fan of the Tempted series you will adore being able to meet up with the Satan's Knights again. If you haven't read the Tempted Series go and get it you will not be disappointed.

Every chapter flows, every word leaps off the page, twists, and turns, love, and laughter this book has it all.

SYNOPSIS:

Stryker

I’m a drifter.
A man born to ride through this world alone.
There used to be a time when I thought I was the rescuing type. I enlisted in the Marines and made it my duty—I was going to save lives.
I was going to be a true American hero.
But God had another plan.
Or maybe Satan did.
For everything I touch finds mortality.
I’m no hero.
I’m nothing.
I’m a veteran biker, a former nomad who survived war only to live in hell.
Now I ride with the Satan’s Knights of Brooklyn and I’m drifting into a different kind of chaos.
The kind that revolves around a pretty girl with intoxicating green eyes.
A girl who has the power to turn me inside out.
A girl who doesn’t need anyone to rescue her because she’s her own savior.
Until she’s not.
But a man plagued by war and the devil inside him can never be her hero.


Gina Spinelli

Strong. Independent. Fierce.
They are the three things I strived to be.
But sometimes being successful can be lonely.
Sometimes a girl just wants to be a girl and have someone take care of her.
Maybe even love her.
Sometimes the strong become vulnerable.
Or worse, the victor becomes the victim.
Sometimes we lose control or in my case, it’s stripped from you.
Defeated. Broken. Haunted.
They are the three things I have become.
In my darkest hour, I admit defeat.
In my darkest hour, I need one person.
I need him.
Stryker.

ARC Review: Surrender to Love by JC Valentine

Surrender to Love (Night Calls, #3)Surrender to Love by J.C. Valentine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Patricia Jacobs has been unlucky in love and now just plain unlucky in life. She has had it with men and she won’t allow them to manipulate and break her heart ever again. Catching your boyfriend cheating and getting fired from your job would make any sane woman throw in the towel on life. Until one day she has a fender bender that will change her life forever.

Jonathon Bradshaw is devastatingly handsome and oozes charm. He can have any woman he wants and has had plenty. Destroyed by past relationships he is not looking for an attachment to any one woman. Then he meets Patricia she is sassy, sexy and unlike any other woman, he has ever met. Completely taken with her Jon decides he will put the past behind him and claim Patricia as his own. But will the past come between them or make them stronger.

This is the 3rd book in the series but can be read as standalone. I read book one but not book two and this book was easy to follow. Each story focuses on a different couple and their journey toward happily ever after.

Patti and Jon have an electrifying chemistry from the moment they literally crash into each other. Their love scenes together are off the charts hot, JC Valentine knows how to write a love scene. Their story is not without trials and tribulations. The road to forever is one paved with secrets for this couple but they find their way.

A great story about letting someone in and opening yourself up to love and happiness.

ARC Review: Rule Breaker by Kat Bastion

Rule Breaker (Unbreakable, #2)Rule Breaker by Kat Bastion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Leilani Kealoha is a woman who wants to escape the high expectations of her family and the prejudice she has grown up with. Losing her mother at a young age she missed having her mom around for the guidance a girl needs. She is constantly breaking the rules set by the Hawaiian men in her family determined to keep her on a pedestal. She wants fun, excitement, adventure and something bigger and greater than the life she is living. In walks an East Coast surfer that could be the answer to all her dreams. If she has the courage to let him in.

Mason Price has had enough of toeing the line for his socialite parents. He’s not the son they want and he never will be. Tired of playing the games his parents want him to play he sets out on his own quest to find himself. His journey leads him to the beautiful islands of Hawaii and the even more beautiful Leilani. A local girl with sass and grit that makes him want to put down roots. She is a challenge to him, she won’t fall at his feet and spill her secrets. She wants nothing from him like the other girls in his social circle back home looking to land a rich husband. She’s everything he can’t have but everything he wants to keep.

Mace and Lani’s story was a slow burn. Sweet and innocent their love bloomed over time. It was pure magic to read how this unlikely couple became each other’s salvation. It is not an easy road for the couple with the prejudices they face within both their families. But their love for each other prevails and they are on their way to a beautiful happily ever after. Truly a modern-day Romeo and Juliet you will love these characters. As always Kat and Stone Bastion do a wonder job making you want to know these endearing people. I definitely recommend.

#WANDERER - Excerpt

© Copyright 2017 All Rights Reserved by Janine Infante Bosco
Drawing in a deep breath, I reach for the knob, twisting it until I open the door and step into dangerous terrain. Closing the door behind me I stagger into the darkness of the room, feeling along the walls as I walk further into Cobra’s territory. A waft of stale smoke assaults my senses as I glance around the small, dated room. My roaming gaze comes to a halt, landing on the man twisted in the sheets of the bed. Tucking my bottom lip between my teeth, a wave of longing washes over me as I stare at the corded muscles of his back and all the colorful tattoos that seem to take up every inch of his skin. So many colors, so much story in each piece. As I gravitate toward the bed the urge to trace every single one consumes me.

It’s not the promise of the man I’m hooked on.

It’s the man.

It’s this incredibly mysterious man that I used to know.

“I’m not dreaming,” he mumbles into the pillow, startling me.

My knees touch the edge of his bed as his thick, raspy voice blankets me and sends a shiver up my spine. It’s not new—that voice was there years ago too. It’s the voice of sex, of carnal pleasure and the promise of bliss. It’s predatory, feral and so damn tempting.

“No, you’re not.” The words are a breathy whisper, a tone he’ll recognize. One that is as sinful as his.

We’re in trouble.

So much fucking trouble.

His head slowly rises from between the pillows and his eyes slice to me, squinting as if he’s witnessing a mirage.

“Feel you in my bones, Cel,” he explains huskily before dropping his face into his pillow.

“I’m sorry, Deuce let me in. I could go, maybe—”

He rolls over on his side, the sheets twist at his waist, leaving very little to the imagination as his eyes skate over me.

“Don’t know why you’re here, don’t care too much either, but thankful as fuck for whatever brought you here, gorgeous,” he says, a lazy smirk tipping his lips as he extends a hand. “Get over here,” he demands.

I should have been prepared.

I should have known that a higher force always has a plan for us.

I should have been stronger.

I should have known he’d hook me with a look and I’d crawl into bed with him.

I should have known old habits are hard to break.

I should have known old loves never die.
