LOVING CASSIE BY JACINTA HOWARD

Cassandra James thinks she has her place in the world all figured out. But an unexpected betrayal forces her to ask if her “free black girl” vibe is a myth, or worse, a mask to hide herself from the world.

Bam Mosley, keyboardist for the alt-soul band, the Prototype, knows who he is. He just wants to make good music and see the people he cares about win.

Then he meets her.

Sure, Cassandra is gorgeous and smart, with hypnotic eyes, but his bandmate’s sister wasn’t supposed to be this…disruptive and break down all his defenses.

She sees what he hides from everyone else. He allows her to take off her mask.

But is their connection powerful enough to survive life’s low notes? Or maybe the true test of love is knowing when to let go…

Avoiding Matthew by Caroline Bell Foster

cover

A kiss. A promise. A mistake.

Lacy Dawson would rather spend her days experimenting with brownie recipes and trying on wedding dresses, than go on yet another secret mission to save her country. She needed a way out and found it.

Deaf, Special Operative Matthew Edwards, stumbled across Lacy where she wasn’t supposed to be, while on an enforced vacation.

They’d never been able to stifle their sexual attraction and indulged every time their paths crossed. However, Matthew knew Lacy was working a dangerous mission outside of the bureau. But what? She was too soft and needed protecting from herself.

Lacy’s secrets take her from America to Russia, to England, all the while with Matthew hot on her heels.

How could she avoid Matthew? Did she want to?

Lacy pressed the gas and the car surged forward. A powerful engine under the guise of a rusty exterior. With one hand she managed to button up three buttons on her shirt, before seeing Matthew in the middle of the road, pointing a gun at her.

No doubt it would be her gun, she thought, pursing her lips.

Frowning deeply and knowing he would move, she kept going. Flooring the gas pedal.

She did up another button.

His hair was shorter than the last time she had seen him, she thought, noticing the burnished red being picked up by her headlights. She went full beam.

He didn’t squint as she thought he would.

She watched as he spread his legs wider, aiming the gun at her head and she narrowed her eyes driving faster. He would move.

Please move.

Move!

Move damn it!

He didn’t.

Lacy gasped, skidded out of control for a split second before pulling up the handbrake, gripping the steering wheel and spinning the car in the opposite direction.

Matthew was lying motionless on his side in the middle of the road.

“You idiot!” Lacy yelled frantically, coming to a stop and storming out of the car.

Matthew had hit the hood hard, bumped up the windscreen to slide off the side. He’d frightened the life out of her. She watched as he lifted his head, shook it once then twice, before rolling over and hauling himself up.

She catalogued his slow movements. He’d be sore in the morning, but otherwise, he was okay she thought charitably. Stupid man.

“Matthew?!” Lacy yelled from a safe distance. If Matthew caught her now he would want answers. She wasn’t giving him, or anyone else answers, and that included their mutual employer.

“You hit me!” Matthew charged.

“You shouldn’t have been in the middle of the road!” Lacy shot back.

“You’re fucking crazy,” he wiped his nose with his arm, “do you know that? You could have killed me!”

“Running you over is not the way I plan to kill you.” She answered, noticing his small but gaining steps. She edged to the door.

“Oh yeah,” he smirked, he couldn’t see much of her, what with the headlights trained his way, but he could see enough. She’d buttoned her shirt up wrong and hadn’t got to the top buttons yet. He could see the golden slope of her breasts. Breasts he had held in his hands not half an hour ago. “And how do you plan to kill me?” he asked conversationally.She didn’t answer but was looking down at her phone in her hand before throwing it into the car.

“I’ll tell you another time,” she advised on a laugh. “Duty calls.” She told him, getting into her small car.

Matthew jogged towards her vehicle, but she was already driving off. Matthew watched her go with a smirk and the biggest hard-on he’d had in half an hour.

When she was at a reasonable distance, she stopped.

Matthew waited with his arms crossed over his chest.

“Have a hot shower babe!” she yelled at him on a laugh, before driving off.

Matthew laughed and laughed even harder as he picked her gun from the asphalt. She’d be back for it, he knew.

Until next time sweetheart, he thought with a smirk.

#Review “Cultivating a Fuji” by Miriam Drori

cover

~~~

4/5 Stars!

Cultivating a Fuji is a moving and sometimes heartbreaking tale of one man’s lifelong struggle with social anxiety.

Martin Carter is that kid in school who’s just a bit smaller, not quite in sync and an easy target for bullying and harassment. And, there is no shortage of fake friends, classmates, and even adults who have no problem tormenting Martin because he’s weird, strange, silent… different.

When it’s revealed a family tragedy was the catalyst for Martin’s social anxiety, I felt the behavior of everyone around him was even more reprehensible. Including his parents.

Despite his issues, Martin makes it through college and gets a job at a small computer software company.

His analytical mind makes him a star employee but social anxiety relegates him to the odd sort. However, when a coworker is sidelined by an accident, Martin is the only one who can take his place and pitch a campaign to a company… in Japan.

Japan will be a turning point for Martin. It’s not immediate or all-encompassing, but there will be change.

This is Martin’s story but there are multiple POVs to show not everyone thinks badly or only want to ridicule him. People want to help… they just don’t know how.

Cultivating a Fuji is a good read lovers of contemporary and literary fiction will enjoy, and the twisty conclusion will linger long after the story’s end.

Enjoy!

~~~

Convinced that his imperfect, solitary existence is the best it will ever be, coverMartin unexpectedly finds himself being sent to represent his company in Japan. His colleagues think it’s a joke; his bosses are certain he will fail. What does Martin think? He simply does what he’s told. That’s how he’s survived up to now – by hiding his feelings.

Amazingly, in the land of strange rituals, sweet and juicy apples, and too much saké, Martin flourishes and achieves the impossible. But that’s only the beginning. Keeping up the momentum for change proves futile. So, too, is a return to what he had before. Is there a way forward, or should he put an end to the search now?

Gradually, as you’ll see when Martin looks back from near the end of his journey, life improves. There’s even a woman, Fiona, who brings her own baggage to the relationship, but brightens Martin’s days. And just when you think there can be no more surprises, another one pops up.

Throughout his life, people have laughed at ‘weirdo’ Martin; and you, as you read, will have plenty of opportunity to laugh, too. Go ahead, laugh away, but you’ll find that there’s also a serious side to all this…

Miriam DroriAuthor Bio
Miriam Drori has decided she’s in the fifth and best stage of her life, and she’s hoping it’ll last for ever. It’s the one in which she’s happiest and most settled and finally free to do what she wants. Miriam lives in a delightful house and garden in Jerusalem with her lovely husband and one of three children. She enjoys frequent trips around the world. She dances, hikes, reads and listens to music. And she’s realised that social anxiety is here to stay, so she might as well make friends with it. On top of that, she has moved away from computer programming and technical writing (although both of those provided interest in previous stages) and now spends her time editing and writing fiction. NEITHER HERE NOR THERE (currently unavailable), a romance with a difference set in Jerusalem, was published in 2014. THE WOMEN FRIENDS, co-written with Emma Rose Millar, is a series of novellas based on the famous painting by Gustav Klimt. SOCIAL ANXIETY REVEALED (non-fiction) provides a comprehensive description of social anxiety from many different viewpoints. CULTIVATING A FUJI takes the social anxiety theme into fiction, using humour to season a poignant story.

EXCERPT

Jasmine saw the vehicle slow as it drove through the gates and her heart raced a little faster. She was a woman alone on a ranch, and she had been dumb enough to leave her phone upstairs; she couldn’t even phone for help.

Making a split-second decision she grabbed a broom from the broom closet and headed to the front door. With her hand on the handle the thunder roared again, the cloudburst sending a waterfall of rain streaming towards the Double T. If she had any hope of identifying the driver that was gone now. She stepped out onto the porch, the broom braced over her shoulder as if she was taking aim.

It was a brave move, a foolish one, but it was the only one she had. She felt the cool drops slap against her legs as the rain sneaked in below the porch’s overhang, while she aimed the broom at the truck. Her breath caught in her throat when she noticed the truck was pulling a trailer.

Was it a trailer of bandits?

Grow up, Jasmine! She scolded herself, narrowing her eyes to see through the windscreen. Why would anyone come to the Double T to make trouble?

She glanced towards the bunkhouse in the distance, where the hands were. She heard the faint sound of country music blasting from the radio they always had going. Even if she wanted to shout for help there was no way they would hear her over the thunder and the deafening rain.

Jasmine noticed movement in the truck and made a show of aiming the broom at the driver, when the spotlights suddenly went on.

Her breath got caught in her throat as fear rushed through her veins. This is it, she thought as her heart thrashed against her ribs. She was really going out with nothing but a broom to protect her.

Jack couldn’t stop the smile that tugged at the corners of his mouth. Did she have any idea how cute she looked? Standing in the porch with nothing but her slip, now see-through from the rain, with a broom over her shoulder.

He had to hand it to her, she had courage. He couldn’t stop himself from teasing her just a little more, and hit the spots. Her eyes widened like a deer in the headlights but the broom held steady over her shoulder.

He didn’t expect the rush of need that shot through his system; neither did he expect her to lift her chin defiantly even though she was clearly frightened. He opened the door of his truck, the reason for his being there completely forgotten.

He held up his hands and called to her through the rain. “I come in peace.”

Her eyes narrowed, but the broom held steady. “State your name!” Jasmine called back to him, her back ramrod straight.

He couldn’t, he simply couldn’t hold it another minute. Laughter tumbled from him as he approached the porch. Jack shook his head when he saw her take a step back.

“Stop right there Buster, or I’ll shoot,” Jasmine warned.

“Should I wait here while you fetch the shotgun and put the broom away, or are you going to sweep me off the porch first?”

#BlogTour “Love By Design” By Ashley Bostock

Title: Love by Design (Irresistible Billionaires Book 4)
Author: Ashley Bostock
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 14th, 2019
Cover Designer: Bookin’ it Designs
Cover Model: Daniel Rendering
Photographer: Golden Czermak
Hosted by:
Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Billionaire CEO Zander Morgan hates to lose. To anyone. He also hates the fact that he is well-known for the architectural design app he created years ago and not for his more meaningful skills as an architect. This year, he is going to up the ante. The Architectural Award only comes out every three years and this year nothing is going to stop him from putting his name on it. With the designs he has for The Rink, he’s sure the award will be his…So long as he can keep his sexy little poker-playing opponent to stop her petition.

Jade Devereaux loves her job as a landmark preservationist. Preserving history is important for all generations—if only she could get her landlord to agree. Receiving notice that The Rink is going through a large overhaul, she comes up with a plan to stop renovations. It is, after all, the same building her parents got engaged in forty some years ago. It is a place where her mere existence was created.

Jade already lost her mother and with her dad now dying too, Jade is more determined than ever to do anything to honor her parent’s love story. Learning that the tall, dark and handsome man she plays poker with is the same man who is going to renovate the building, gives Jade a run for her money.

Already having a crush on Zander—he’s definitely a five-card stud—and finding out he’s the one that has plans to destroy part of the building, has Jade going all in. Will her attempts to stop construction push Zander to fold? Or is it possible that by saving her parent’s love story, she’s also making her own?

EXCERPT from Last Weekend

Ufuoma was the last off the plane. She had shunned her usual garb of comfortable jeans and tees and worn a cream skirt-suit that clung to her voluptuous figure like wet on water.

The cream showed off her dark skin, and to drive the point of her femininity home, she had the first three buttons of the white shirt open. Her bra pushed up the mounds of her breasts, leaving onlookers in no doubt of the gifts hidden underneath her clothes.

On her feet was a pair of heels, making her appear even taller.

She was determined to make the best of this long weekend away from her regular life.

This would be her first time at an all-female party, and although Loretta had assured her that it would be fun, she was still a little anxious, so she fell into the default of looking extraordinarily good to boost her spirits.

One of the best things, and the worst, was her ability to ‘pass’ and be taken for a heterosexual, cis-gendered woman, but it also made her invisible to other queer women. A blessing and a curse in a country like Nigeria. She remembered her university days with a shudder. Those years she’d spent listening to ‘godly advice’ from classmates and lecturers about how she should stop hanging out with her more masculine-presenting friends, the rumours they felt comfortable sharing with her about how these women were all a bunch of lesbians and that she should avoid being inducted into the ‘cult of lesbianism.’

 To worsen her situation, bonding with women was not her strong suit, maybe because she was not primarily attracted to men, not sexually or emotionally. She’d never felt invested in them enough to mind their vagaries; she could take them or leave them, without a backward glance. But with women—she was always so scared, had always been, of the different ways loving women could drive you to a point of madness, of how invested she became in their lives, their well-being. But most importantly of the powerful way a woman could break you … but that hadn’t stopped her from wanting them, loving them.
