Synopsis round.jpg


It was never supposed to happen. 'We' never should have happened.

He and I... Our constantly crossing paths changed the unthinkable to the inevitable.
It was magical, exhilarating, and life defining... despicable, and it ruined everything.

It destroyed me.
It destroyed us.
He and I is what happened before.
And everything else is what happened after…

It’s always the same question every single time. He looks at me with his eyes full of sadness, his expression full of embarrassment, and I hate it! That question always makes me feel terrible, as if we just did something wrong… which we have, but I hate that he’s conscious of it, that he reminds me of it. As if I said ‘no this is wrong, terribly wrong, I’m in love with you, and I want to be with you,’ it’s something he wants to hear.
“Yeah,” I say, my throat burning. He looks at me, and I turn my face away, feeling a tear escape.
“Lisa.” His voice is full of sorrow, fear, and every other depressing feeling that makes me want to vomit.
Anger starts to consume me, and it replaces the hesitancy I usually have to say the words I’ve wanted to say for so long. “I love you, Will.”
There’s silence, and each second cuts through me. When my eyes meet his, I see a storm in them, and I don’t care. I want him to say something. Anything.
“You know I…” His voice is weak, his expression full of confusion as if to say Why on earth? How dare you?
“I love you, Will!” I say louder.
He doesn’t say anything but sits on the edge of the bed, as if my words have knocked him out. I cry, and I know it’s making things worse, but I can’t help it now. My resolve is in tatters.
I get off the bed and stand in front of him, naked and vulnerable. “I know it’s wrong. I know you said that this would happen. I know all of this, but can you at least say something? Can you at least try to make me feel just a little bit better about it?”
I only see deadness behind his eyes, as if he’s left himself and only his body is here with me.
“I want to be loved how you love her! Is that too much to ask? Does just wanting to be loved make me terrible person?” I ask desperately, and his eyes water.
“No, it doesn’t,” he says softly. “But it makes me a terrible person.” He stands up from my bed, grabs the sheet, and wraps it around me. He kisses my forehead and looks into my eyes. “I can’t love you how you want me to, Lisa, how you should be loved.”
I feel my heart race. Why did I say that? I feel anxious and angry with myself. “I’m sorry.”
I hug him, but he doesn’t hug me back. Anxiety courses through me. It was too much, I knew it was, but I couldn’t keep the words from leaving.
“I won’t ever bring this up again. Just please don’t be mad. Just forget I said it.”
“I think we… this is destroying you. I can’t do this to you anymore,” he says, going to the door.
I jump in front of it. He looks at me sympathetically but gently moves me out of the way. I follow him through my quiet, dark house to the back door. When he opens it, the cold air hits me. The sky’s still dark aside from the tiny light on my back porch. He goes down the porch and looks back at me.
“Good night, Lisa,” he says quietly before disappearing down the street into the darkness. His truck is parked almost four blocks up in its usual spot.

How do you ask the question when you know the answer may change everything? 

Sasha Brooks has been focused on one thing her entire life: her career. Newly promoted as the vice president in a New York advertising company, she has beauty, brains, and one hell of a fierce reputation. But she also has a secret that she keeps carefully guarded. 

Brian Carpenter is finding out that managing his newest VP isn't without its challenges, but when it comes to Sasha, he'd expect nothing less.

His easygoing personality and Southern charm are the yang to her yin and the calm to her storm. 

Over the last eight years of their friendship, their flirtations, innuendos, and chemistry have almost led to more, but Sasha has convinced herself they're better off just friends.
Almost.

Until the moment she thinks he's with someone else. 

Is she too late to admit her feelings?

Gathering the courage to ask the question, Sasha discovers she isn't the only one keeping secrets. 

You think you know someone....

Excerpt


His voice was doing funny things to me, so I gulped down more water. I couldn’t believe we were standing in my kitchen having this conversation. “Maybe I like to call the shots with the men I date.” Quite frankly, if they didn’t like it, then too bad, I almost added. 

“Yeah, and how has that worked out for you, Sasha?” 

His smug look made me want to wipe it off. “I’m not into long-lasting relationships, therefore it's worked out just fine,” I retorted. 

He gave a low chuckle and moved, boxing me in against the countertop. With his forearms on either side of me, he leaned in. His voice was low and gravelly as he murmured against my ear, “I was talking about the sex, honey. How was the sex?” 

I wasn’t sure I wanted to discuss my sexual history, let alone admit it lacking. Meanwhile, his nearness was wreaking havoc on my senses. 

He pulled back and danced his fingers down my arm. “Actually, I could tell you how it’s been for you.” 

I shivered at his nearness and sexy voice. “Do tell,” I challenged on a whisper. 

He smirked, knowing exactly the effect he was having on me. “It was fine. And the word fine is a throwaway word. It’s what you respond with to the doorman when he asks how your evening was: “Fine, thanks.” It’s what you say to the client when they ask how your flight was: “fine.” But it shouldn’t be the way you describe your sex life. Hell, maybe the first time was okay and promising. The second time, maybe a little bit better, but by the fifth time, you realized that’s it. That was the main act with the encore. But it was fine, so you stick it out for a while. After all, it’s nice to have a reason to wear something new and lacy with someone to notice. Nice to get dinner with someone. But then you find yourself bored and staying late at work even when you don’t have to because, frankly, the alternative isn’t as appealing, and that’s not so fine.” 

“Okay, enough.” I moved one of his arms and stepped out of reach to lean against the opposite counter. He’d touched a nerve, hitting too close to home on my sex life or at least the one that I could remember.

“I only tell you this because I’ve been there, and now it’s time for something better than fine.”

Following a theme with the title, Aubrey Bondurants second book is Ask me something, her first was Tell me something. I love Aubrey’s writing and this book made me itch not to put it down just like Tell me something. Aubrey has a lovely writing style and I just love her story telling. I simply couldn't put the book down apart form to sleep,  then it was” just one more chapter “ just one more chapter “ I loved Sasha in tell me something so for me her book was an excellent idea. Learning the story behind the “Sasha Fierce” story was a natural progression. I LOVE BRIAN he may just be my newest and favourite book boyfriend, equal mix of alpha and sensitive male be perfect. Romance books with alpha males have been done to death so this nice mix up where he is sensitive too and makes mistakes too making him not so perfect that he is actually perfect.The story has a great back story of 8 years of simmering passion and everyone else already knows these two are meant for each other. I love that big bad brave Sasha is not perfect and her “Sasha Fierce” is her work persona . Another great read from Bondurant. Once again i predict big things for  this author.

**SALE & 5* REVIEW ** IF I BREAK SERIES by PORTIA MOORE

Portia Spot.png








If I Break complete.jpg





Synopsis round.jpg


The complete If I Break Series Bundle. Includes If I Break, Before I Break, Almost Broken and Beautifully Broken.

This is not your typical happily ever after...

Lauren Brooks wants to do three things: Escape the small town she grew
up in, get accepted to her dream school in Chicago, and graduate
without drowning in debt. Now she’s working her ass off to do just
that.

With a full course load and a waitressing job at one of the hottest
night clubs in Chicago, she does not have time for distractions;namely
ones who only want to get into her pants. She’s been burned before.
Only a fool goes for a second round... With just two semesters left
until graduation, everything’s on track.

Until she meets Cal. Enter distraction.

At six-foot-two, with ebony hair, deep grey eyes, and a smile that
could only hide an agenda, she knows he’s trouble. And for the first
time in her life, a little trouble might be just what she needs.

No. What she wants.

It isn't like she’d ever marry the guy.
Until she does.

What she thinks will be her happily ever after, is only the beginning.
Cal has a secret. One that makes loving him come with a price, and
being his wife cost more than she bargained for.

A crash of thunder snaps me out of the trance I’m falling into. I disentangle myself from his embrace and walk towards the window, watching the raindrops paint the city. He comes to stand beside me. I don’t look at him, but I know he’s watching me.
“I didn’t mean to make you uncomfortable,” he says quietly.
“You’re not. It’s, it’s just—this is all… I’m not used to this,” I admit stumbling over my speech.
“I don’t want you to do anything you don’t want to do tonight. As hard as it is,” he lets out a long sigh and laughs.
“I’ll keep my hands to myself the rest of the night,” he smiles innocently, crossing his arms over his chest and deliberately tucking his hands under his muscular arms. The thing is—I don’t want him to keep his hands to himself. I want them all over me and it’s terrifying. I’ve never wanted someone so bad in my life, and it’s overwhelming.
“Do you do this? I mean seriously, is this just a routine for you?” I ask him, my heart in my throat. I’m afraid to hear the answer.
He looks at me, surprised. “Well, I’m not going to lie and tell you I’m a saint. I’m far from it. I love women and I’ve never had to work too hard to get one,” he says bluntly. I cross my arms as well. I think somewhere inside of me I’m jealous, imagining all of the women who have stood in this same spot, who have walked through his door and been in his bed.
“But, you’re the first woman I’ve been with that I can honestly say if you left here tonight without letting me see what’s under your dress, I would still call you,” he says with a slight chuckle and I’m appalled. What a douche-bag thing to say!
“It’s time for me to go home,” I say irritated. Definitely time for me to go. I turn to walk away, but he grabs my hand.
“Wait! That came out wrong. I’m sorry. I’m not used to having to explain myself to anyone,” he says. He runs his fingers through his dark locks and chuckles nervously.
“I like you! I love being with women. But I usually don’t like being with them if that makes sense,” he tries to explain and he seems a little confused. It’s the first un-cool moment he’s had and for the first time tonight I notice flecks of green glimmering in his gray eyes; they twinkle at me.
“You seem like the type of guy that doesn’t think beyond the night. I’m not like that,” I tell him.
He steps towards me and the familiar heat rushes between us.
“Well, I see you past tonight,” he says cupping the side of my face; I lean into his hand and close my eyes. I don’t know what to do. My mind is telling me to leave at this point, to leave right now. My body is begging me to stay and let him do whatever he wants to it. My heart is lonely; I’ve been alone for so long. Even with Michael, something was missing, and I know this pull he has over me has to be lust, but there’s something else. If it was just lust I wouldn’t be so afraid, right?
I turn away from him, back towards the window, trying to collect my thoughts—my wants versus my fears.
“What do you want from me?” Who am I kidding? I know exactly what he wants.
“I want you to tell me what you want,” he whispers and second later his lips have found the secret spot on my neck that sends a thrill over me.
“What if I don’t know what I want?” My voice goes up an entire octave.
He turns me around so we’re facing each other now. He leans down, pulling me into a breathless kiss. I have to wrap my arms around him tighter to keep from losing my balance. I softly whimper as his tongue begins to explore my mouth, and he begins to slowly unzip my dress almost as if he's waiting for me to stop him. When I don't, his hand slides beneath the thin material; the heat of his hand seems foreign but amazing.
Opening my eyes, the room is spinning but my focus is on him. Each movement in rhythm, every kiss, every touch—he shouldn’t be able to make me feel like this; it’s almost like he can read my mind.
“I want to be the one to show you things you’ve never seen,” he whispers in my ear as he unhooks my bra. “Make you feel things you’ve never felt,” his voice pours into my ear as his hand slides up my thigh.
“Just let me,” he says, picking me up. The strap of my dress slides down my shoulder.
“And what do I have to do?” I whimper out completely under his spell. He lifts me higher so I’m looking into his eyes, and brings his mouth to my ear.
“Say yes,”
There are so many reasons I should say no: I barely know him, we’ve only been out twice.
“Yes,” I say, breathless.

WOW WOW WTF WOW WTF WOW WTF WTF WTF 
This was me reading this. It’s a long time since i was gripped. at some points my heart was beating so fast i thought i might have a heart attack. oh the feels this book put me through, i can honestly say i haven't felt this way about a book in a while. it grabbed me and kept me still until i had read the box set (all three books). both my mum and friend Suzanne had recommended this series to me but i just never got round to it. this books are not a bright easy read they are full of angst and have moments of utter mystery. 

CAL -wow what  hot sexy jerk, yeah i wanted a piece of him while i was reading, his attitude made him a jerk but his love for Lauren totally made him.

LAUREN- a bit of an airhead, was so swept away by his love for her and the great sex she didn't ask the most basic questions then became a nagging wife when things didn't go her way.

DEX- wow he plays the jerk card almost as good as cal but something tell me he isn't all bad and i bet him and Helen could have some great stories if they got there own book.

Helen - wow she is a sneaky character, part of me wanted to tell Lauren to run for the hills the minute she met her but i think Helen redeemed herself but he end. 

Chris - he doesn't come in the first book i don't think but he is a bit of a wet dishcloth, he needs a backbone.

Mr Scott - i disliked him from the beginning and wondered what his agenda was, smarmy self righteous  jerk. 

Mrs Scott- lovely lady who is simply a loving mother who doesn't care about anything else but her family.

Lisa - now i find it odd that se is best mates with Chris and Aiden but when she reveals herself I'm left wondering about her. 

Jenna - self absorbed bitch.

i don’t usually do a character pitch but the secondary characters and the inter mingling of the characters really MAKE this book.  i wish i could give this more than 5* as it is truly a roller coaster of emotions. Dear Portia i cannot wait for the next book.
