The Initiation Teaser 3

EXCERPT
We were all related to monsters.
All heir to corrupt kingdoms.
Forced to uphold some delusion that we are doing God’s will by ridding the world of the bad
people when we should be included in that kind of purge.
“It’s down to the right. There’s a bunker. That’s where they keep the sacrifices,” I was finally
tired of wondering around when I knew exactly where to go.
I found them by mistake one year when I was ten, back when inviting your whole family was
more common. They expected everyone to be present even if you weren’t weilding a musket and
shooting real people down.
The four of us used to play hide and seek on the grounds just to keep ourselves entertained.
I always had the best hiding places, this was our vacation home when it wasn’t being used for some
ceremony the Clave hosted.
I was ten years old when I found people in cages in the bunker we were told to stay away
from. They were all dugged, out of it like they were dreaming with their eyes open. I envied them.
Dreaming with your eyes wide open seemed like the perfect antidote to life, too bad that kind of
safety only came before you died.
It wasn’t until my first attendance I realized these people weren’t lucky at all. They were
bait, aggression running wild, enemies of the Clave that we hunted for sport.
None of them were going to survive – the least we could do was let them dream with their
eyes wide open.

AUTHOR BIO
Elena Monroe grew up in Florida scribbling down stories from a very young age. These stories were
really just wavy lines filling the paper, but she knew each word, each emotion, each character's
name, and there was no tricking her into forgetting what each line signified. Just like her
unconventional way of writing as a toddler Elena is setting her own rules and just telling stories.
Much like her debut novel, The Best Years, life certainly imitated art. Transplanting from the South
to the East Coast, Elena currently lives in Connecticut with husband, reformed bad boy.

Poe Halliday was an accident. A chance meeting that changed my life forever.

My mother didn’t have secrets; her secrets had her. After she disappeared, I had nothing.
Or so I thought.

When the invitation arrived, the opportunity to learn about my mother’s past was too great to pass up. Heading west to meet an aunt I had never heard of, I knew I was taking a risk, but I craved answers. Instead, I ended up with more questions, and now the dark history of this town threatens to tear me apart.

It’s all about him.

I knew this was a mistake.

Stella Bradleigh was a distraction. Something to play with when my shadows got too dark.

I spent my entire existence forced to live a life I didn’t want. There was only one way out.
Or so I thought.

When she arrived, none of us had any idea what it meant. Meeting the beautiful stranger with the mysterious past, I thought she would be a good time, and then I could just throw her away like all the others. Instead, she consumed me, and now she’s made me question everything I know to be real in my life.

It’s all about her.

I knew I was a mistake.

Sometimes what seems most fragile can’t be broken.

 Folkestone Sins is a series of interconnected duets.  Fragile Things is the first book in Stella and Poe’s duet, and the first book in the series. This is a dark, mature high school/new adult romance. It contains situations and flashbacks that may trigger some readers, language that may be offensive, and scenes of a sexual nature (all consensual).  Recommended for 18+ only

ALSO COMING SOON IN THE FOLKESTONE SINS SERIES

BLURB

Here’s the 411 about high school—well, at least for my high school, Clintwood Academy.

  1. It’s a fucking warzone.
  2. Everyone has a grudge against someone else.
  3. It’s the breeding ground for losers, jealous broken-hearted girls and acne covered fools with zero game.
  4. The disgustingly rich kids are vile, vindictive, popular and the mecca of a social life worth a damn.
  5. Lastly, high school is simply, survival of the fittest.

And I was the fittest of them all. Once.

Once before I was set up to take the fall for an attempted murder of one of the Fitz brothers, the golden boys of St. Jude High, our sworn rival enemy.

Before I was played for a kiss and it worked.

Now, the Fitz brothers hate me.

They suspect me.

They want to destroy me.

They know everything about me, and I hate them for it.

And now, we’ll all be living together, like one big, happy step-family. With secrets brimming, hatred festering, and other feelings I have no business having for my step-cousin-brothers or whatever, haunting me night and day.

Now, let’s kiss and be forever rivals…

Maddie Goldbloom stitched up a plan to ensure everything in her life was perfect—from a career in fashion to a chic NYC apartment to a pediatrician boyfriend.
When her ex, Chase Black, storms back into her life with an outrageous request, her immediate reaction is to refuse him. But he only wants to fulfill his father’s last wish. So even though he’s the man who broke her heart, playing his fiancée shouldn’t be hard, especially if it means she gets to watch the arrogant devil squirm a bit.
What ensues is a chain of events that detonates Maddie’s life—and when Chase’s walls come down, they both are forced to face reality.
They say keep your enemies close. But what if your enemy is also the man you love?

Excerpt

I rinse my mouth at the sink and see my tongue is still in one piece and has stopped bleeding. Turning to look at the others, part of me that has been empty for so long fills with the glow of friendship being offered.
All of a sudden, the bathroom door slams open, connecting solidly with the wall behind it and making us all jump. Expecting to see Hali ready to stab me in the face with her lunch fork, I’m utterly shocked when Poe strides angrily into the room.
“Ladies,” he growls. “Out. Now.” He locks his predatory gaze with mine. “Not you, Bradleigh. You stay.”
“Dude, you know this is the girls’ bathroom, right?” Sunday follows her question with a pointed look at Poe’s crotch.
“I’m aware. I also don’t care. Need to have a few words with your girl here.”

New Release + Release Blitz + Blog Tour + Excerpt + 5 Star Review: Quarter Miles by Devney Perry

We are so excited to celebrate the release of QUARTER MILES, the third book in the Runaway series from author Devney Perry. This slow burn friends to lovers romance will give you ALL of the feels, so grab your copy and dive in today!

 

 

Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.

In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.

Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.

The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.

Or rip them apart.

EXCERPT

“Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air.

“I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?”

“Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?”

“You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to.

“I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.”

Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us?
Yes.

That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal.

Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one.

I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.

 

 

Tracey’s Review

I am more entranced with each book in the Runaway series by Devney Perry. More in love, more invested, more everything. I have been waiting for QUARTER MILES, Katherine’s and Cash’s book, since I reached the very last page of WILD HIGHWAY, because the promise of another great read was guaranteed, and I was not disappointed.

Unrequited love, forbidden love, friends to lovers, there’s all of this and more in QUARTER MILES. Katherine and Cash are a ticking time bomb, you know the type, just waiting for the right spark to ignite. The kind of unresolved tension that you can literally cut with a knife? Yeah, plenty of that here. Their road to happy is long and twisty, but when they get there, SO worth every bump.

Devney has cemented her place as a queen of contemporary romance, where small towns and family play a major role, and I cannot get enough. Her books consistently rank among my favorites, and are ones that I happily recommend as must-reads. I’m already dying for Aria’s story, FORSAKEN TRAIL, which can’t show up on my e-reader quickly enough. In the meantime, 5 stars for Katherine, Cash, and their heads and tails journey to love. ❤️

About the Author:
Devney is a USA Today bestselling author. Born and raised in Montana, she loves writing books set in her treasured home state. After working in the technology industry for nearly a decade, she abandoned conference calls and project schedules to enjoy a slower pace at home with her husband and two sons. Writing one book, let alone many, was not something she ever expected to do. But now that she’s discovered her true passion for writing romance, she has no plans to ever stop. Devney loves hearing from readers!

New Release + Blog Tour + Excerpt + 4 Star Review: Twisted Circles by Claire Contreras

Twisted Circles by  New York Times bestselling author, Claire Contreras, is now live!

When someone tells you who you are, do you believe them?

The first question the cops asked me was if anything out of the ordinary happened to me lately.

When I woke up this morning in the room of a mental institution I couldn’t remember a thing – not my name nor how I got there. Not how I left or how I ended up in that interrogation room.

The only thing I knew came from the contents inside my bag. A wallet, a student ID, a key that opened an unknown door, and two notebooks.

They tell me my name. It matches my IDs.

They tell me my story. I shut my eyes and try to piece it together, but can’t.

They tell me why they picked me up in the first place. They thought I was my sister. My brain stays stuck there. I try to rewind and fast-forward, as if my memories were on a videotape, but it’s no use. I can’t recall having a sister.

They put me back in the car and drop me off in front of a mansion they call The Manor and I discover what the mysterious key in my backpack opens the front door, and just as quickly wish I’d never unlocked it at all.

Twisted Circles is a complete standalone that takes place in the same “world” as Half-Truths.

 “What the hell did I just see?” My voice was hoarse, the screams I’d contained ripping the tone from it.

“I don’t know.”

“What do you . . . ” I shook my head, covering my face. “You’re not going to tell me. You wouldn’t tell me. You’re the president of this freakish cult. Of course you wouldn’t tell me.”

“I don’t know.” His voice carried and brought my gaze back to his. “I really don’t know.”

“I don’t believe you.”

“That’s too bad.” He shook his head. “It doesn’t change the fact that I’m not lying.”

“I should have left with your brother.”

“My brother?” His expression turned serious. He glanced away for a long moment, staring at the portrait beside us. I had no idea who it was, but it was a man wearing a black little hat and a cross. A priest of sorts. Adam looked at me again. “My brother can’t help you.”

“And you can?” I nodded toward the back of the room. “You won’t even tell me why I just saw what I saw.”

“I don’t know the answer to that.” His jaw set.

“Your brother said you were going to bury me.”

“What else did Nolan decide to tell you?”

“Not much.”

“He shouldn’t have spoken to you. He knows better.”

“Free country and all.”

“Not in here.” Adam’s lip tilted. “You’re under our command in here.”

“Are you going to do to me what they’re doing to that woman?”

“No.”

“Are you going to bury me?” I swallowed, waiting.

“Yes.”

Yes. No hesitation.

“Are . . . are you going to kill me?”

“No.”

“You’re going to bury me alive?”

“Yes.”

Again, no hesitation. My heart skipped. Where was I and who were these people? I realized that I could scream, I could punch him, I could try to run, but I wouldn’t get very far.

“Is that part of the initiation?” I licked my lips, mentally preparing myself.

“Yes.”

“Were you buried?”

“We all were.”

“Has anyone died?” My lip quivered again. I blinked my eyes, more tears fell. I wiped them quickly.

He didn’t answer, but with the way his lips set into a hard line, he didn’t have to.

 

Tracey’s Review

TWISTED CIRCLES, indeed. This book, my friends, is a mind game of epic proportions. If you thought that your first visit to Ellis University was crazy, author Claire Contreras proves that she has much more up her sleeve, and that there is no shortage of action still ahead.

While I appreciate the value of a review, TWISTED CIRCLES is absolutely a book that you must go into blind. The power of it lies in the twists, turns, and the ‘what the actual heck?!’ moments, and Claire does a fabulous job of keeping those moments coming.

If new adult suspense with a nice splash of romance is your gig, TWISTED CIRCLES is the read for you. You will be surprised at every turn, and will not put this book down until you’ve uncovered every single piece of the puzzle that Claire has crafted. 4 stars, and a suggestion to start reading early, because TWISTED CIRCLES will have you consumed and flipping pages until the very end. ❤️
