 The Resolution of Callie and Kayden

Available on Amazon, iTunes, B&N, and Smashwords

 

Synopsis

Things are going good for Callie and Kayden. They’re still dealing with their past and the pain connected to it, but for the most part they’ve moved on. The biggest decision they have at the moment is what they want to do with their lives in the future.

Eventually, though, the past catches up with them and they’re left facing tough choices. But Callie and Kayden learn that as long as they have each other, they can make it through just about anything. And in the end, they discover what they really want out of life.

 

Excerpt

“She’s just being nice,” Kayden says gazing down at me. His hair is ruffled and his jawline is scruffy and he looks so happy. “And it’s nice… that she wants to be so nice… it could be worse than an overnice mother.”

“Yeah, I know.” I sigh, knowing he’s right, that it could be worse, that I could have a mother like his mother. “I just wish she’d be just a little bit less embarrassing.” I raise my hand and make a pinching gesture with my fingers. “Maybe just a teeny tiny bit.”

“Yeah, I doubt that’s ever going to happen.” Kayden slips his shirt off and chucks it aside. His jeans ride low on his hips, giving me a view of his abs and chest that is crisscrossed with scars. “I did find it funny when she kept cracking jokes all through dinner about how she thinks we’re going to end up getting married.” He kneels down on the mattress, nudging my knees open with his knees until I spread open my legs for him.

“Oh God.” Shaking my head, I cover my face with my hands. “I’m glad you find it funny because I’m sure most guys would be running for their lives.”

The mattresses moves as he leans over me and puts a hand on each side of my head. I crack my fingers apart and look at him. He’s been so much happier since he put the past behind him. He seems to breathe freer, smile more, and it’s probably the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen. “Well, just make sure you really want this,” I say as he moves one of my hands away from my eyes. “Because you still have time to run.”

He shakes his head, his tongue slipping out of his mouth to wet his lips. “No running here,” he whispers in a raspy voice that I know only means one thing—he wants me. “Ever.” He moves my other hand away from my face then pins my arms above my head.

A while ago, the movement would have sent my heart soaring and not in a good way. But now… well, it freaking soars like a bird high up in the sky never wanting to return to land ever. It soars because it’s free. It soars for him.

“You want me,” I tease as he leans down to kiss me.

“You’re right,” he says. “And then I want to give you your present.”

“But you already gave me my present.” I pat my pocket where the tickets to the concert are that he gave me. He said it was for a redo of a night that should have been special, but he couldn’t give it to me then, but he was ready now to give me everything I deserve—his words not mine. My mom practically fainted when he said it. And me, well I think I fell in love with Kayden even more.

“Yeah, but that one was only the first part.” He kisses me, then softly bites my bottom lip before he leans back for air. “There’s more,” he breathes against my lips, coming in for another kiss. “But you have to wait.”

“Until when?” I wonder, my heart skipping a beat as his hands wander for the button of my jeans.

“Until we’re done with this.” He gives me a wicked smile as he flicks my button undone.

 

My Review

I fell in love with Callie and Kayden in The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden. I was still thinking of their story days after finishing that read. Their story continued in The Redemption of Callie & Kayden. When I reached the end of that book, I immediately was wanting the final installment of their story.

With The Resolution of Callie & Kayden, we see the couple still healing from their individual pasts. While Callie is doing better, Kayden is struggling. He is having difficulty letting go of his abusive past. Callie and Kayden find closure in Resolution and are moving towards their future together.

I really liked that we see some growth in how both Callie and Kayden deal with their relationships with family. We Callie spending time with her brother. And we see Kayden’s brother acting the protective older brother. This final installment had me glued to the pages, needing to know that Callie and Kayden were going to make it to their happy ever after.

Great getaway with LOVING EDEN by T.A. Foster

September 2014

Goodreads 

BOOK SUMMARY:

Have you ever thought of packing up everything you own and moving halfway across the country?

I’m talking about leaving your entire life behind—friends, family, school—with no turning back. No? Me either, but that was before a week of spring break changed my life forever. Before I did something I never thought I’d do at twenty-two. Before I fell in love with Grey.

Sometimes happily ever after isn’t always what you think it will be.

My Review

I enjoyed this continuation of Eden and Grey’s story.  Eden makes the move to Texas, joining Grey at the Palm Palace.  Long distance relationships are hard but starting a life together can be difficult too.  From the start with Eden’s cross country drive, I was turning the pages to get to her reunion with Grey and couldn’t stop reading until the very last page.

T. A. Foster gives us a realistic story that is very relatable with likable characters.  We see Eden and Grey’s relationship deepening as both characters grow and develop.   I’m hoping to read about a couple of secondary characters in a future story.

About FURIOUS FIRE:

November 2014

The Grimm are coming to an end…the second to last book

He is the love of all her lives…

 

Grimm’s Circle, Book 8

Thomas Finn, troublemaker, gunslinger, guardian angel…loner. More than a hundred and fifty years ago, he was shot in the back then brought back to life just in time to watch a demon masquerading as his best friend kill the love of his life.

Now, as a Grimm, he satisfies his need for vengeance hunting down demons like the ones that took Rebecca from him. His mission: kill as many as he can, then, when the time comes, go down in a blaze of glory. But with each kill, he comes closer to a line no angel should cross.

Her name was Rebecca. Then it was Tilly. Then Ada. Now, Kallypso. She’s lived so many lives, she can’t even remember when or why it started. All she knows is, she’s always searching for a man with golden eyes that make her burn. And when she finds him—as she always does—she knows that spark of joy means she’s only seconds away from death…again.

This time will be no different…unless something breaks the cycle once and for all.

Warning: Contains the Groundhog Day of star-crossed lovers, a pissed-off guardian angel, a demon-hunter with an axe to grind, and the battle to end all battles. Be warned…there’s pain ahead in this book. Oh, and that HEA finally happens. For these two, anyway.

This will be the second to the last in the Grimm series…make sure you read it…want to see how it all comes down…

About WHATEVER LIFE THROWS AT YOU:

Life loves a good curveball…

Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas is too young to remember her dad’s glory days as a pitcher for the Yankees. So when her father is offered a coaching position with the Kansas City Royals, Annie is intrigued to see the baseball side of her dad. Of course, knowing he’ll be a mentor to hot young rookie pitcher, Jason Brody, certainly makes it more enticing.

After an awkward first meeting with “Brody” involving very little clothing and a much-too-personal locker room interview, Annie’s convinced she knows Brody’s type: arrogant, self-involved, bossy. As her dad grows closer to the pitching phenom, the friction between Brody and Annie increases. But when opening day arrives and it looks like both her dad and Brody may lose their dream jobs, Annie steps up and offers support. She and Brody call a truce that grows into friendship—and beyond. Falling for a rising star who’s quickly reaching a level that involves rabid female fans is not what Annie would call smart, except suddenly she’s getting hints that maybe this crush isn’t one-sided after all. Could someone like Brody actually fall for a girl like her?

Dylan Synopsis:

Four years ago, I was tempted with money, prestige, and power by a woman who offered to give me the world. That lifestyle came with a price. I had to leave the love of my life—the one person who had already given me everything I would ever need.

Today I watch Jules Weston in another man’s arms. Wanting… needing her back in my life again. But there are obstacles that keep us apart. Her boyfriend. Her best friend. Her anger that has raged inside her over the years.

Despite those, I’ve returned to take back what’s mine. The one thing I regret leaving behind—her heart.

My Review

I loved this journey that is FROM THE INSIDE OUT! I got hooked into Jules Weston’s story with SCORNED and continued through JEALOUSY.  I couldn’t wait to read DYLAN for more of his story.

This second chance love story with a triangle kept me turning the pages until Jules’s choice was revealed.  Until I read Dylan, I might have been a little undecided on my choice but not after.  Team Dylan always!

SL Scott does a fantastic job with giving us characters that we want to know and twists to keep us reading. I’ll definitely pick up another book to read and get lost in.

Synopsis For Scorned & Jealousy

We shared a love that regulated every heartbeat and every breath we took. It was all encompassing. I thought our love could withstand time and anything thrown our way.

I was wrong. So wrong.

I used to be happy. I used to be Juliette Weston when Dylan Somers filled my life with promises of love and a happy ever after. But when he took my heart and broke it into a million pieces, I became someone else entirely. In one afternoon, I lost my soul mate. I lost everything I knew myself to be.

Three years later, the man who destroyed me is back.

To assuage his guilt? To finish the job? It doesn’t matter… I won’t let him this time. I’m stronger. I’ve moved on. He won’t affect me.

This is a story of love and betrayal. Pain and loss. Happiness and fate. It’s about finding your true destiny.

This is our story.

But when her sister came home after years of being away, long hidden secrets came out. Turns out, Mallory isn’t who she thought she was. And now everything starts to feel like a lie.

excerpt

I was done denying myself.  I wanted to touch her.  To taste her.  There was no reason for us to keep acting like we weren’t attracted to each other.

“You sure you want to cross this line?” I looked down at the sliver of space between us and back up into her eyes.  “The last thing I want is for this whole thing to get awkward.”

“It’s not going to,” she insisted.  “Like you said, two consenting adults blowing off a little steam.  As long as you don’t get all clingy with me.”

“I’ll try my best,” I promised, as I wrapped my arms around her waist and crushed my lips to hers.

I’d been wondering what her lips tasted like for the better part of a week now and I was not disappointed.  Like strawberries and whatever unbridled passion tasted like. She pushed the welding mask from the top of my head and it fell to the ground with a thud as she tangled her fingers in my hair, pulling me closer.  Her tongue danced over the seam of my lips and I graciously let her in, needing her as much as she needed me.

I’d never been kissed like that.  Never by someone with wild abandonment, like she didn’t have a damn care in the world about what any of it meant.  It was strictly about what felt good and right then, kissing her felt like the best thing in the world.

I hoisted her body up. She wrapped her legs around my waist and I navigated us toward the workbench I’d been sitting on earlier.  Her lips never relented their assault on mine and I would be damned if I was going to let her out kiss me. Besides my competitive streak, I was enjoying it too much to let myself stop.

As soon as I had her perched on the work bench, my body pressed between her thighs, her hands dropped from my hair to tug my shirt up over my head. She tossed it aside and let her hands rake over my back and shoulders.  Her eyes taking a brief moment to admire my chest and stomach.  I was glad that I hadn’t stop giving a shit about my body and quit working out.  And from the pace we were setting I was going to need my energy.

“Greedy girl,” I chuckled against her lips, before grabbing the hem of her shirt and yanking it off her body with the same determination she’d just had with mine.  “This is a two way street.”

“I’m well aware,” she flashed me a sultry smile, before reaching behind her back to unclasp her bra.  Effortlessly, she pulled it from her body and sat up straight in front of me.  “We even now?”

abouthebook
All she wanted to do was forget. Forget the memory of walking in on her boyfriend in the middle of, well, another girl. Forget how she had her entire life planned out. And, forget about being perfect all the time. Unfortunately, she was Whitney Vandaveer and despite the fact that she moved to the middle of nowhere – she couldn’t.

He always knew he would never be more than nothing. No job, no money, no future. Cole Pritchett had accepted the fact that he would always be the screw up and he was okay with it. Until he met her.

Here’s the thing they quickly found out – sometimes we all need a little help escaping who we think we are.

 

aboutheauthor

Born and raised in the middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe.

Although this journey began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany… I should write a book. And I did it!

If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them.
