Synopsis





Ryker

She is the epitome of the girl next door, but with a feistiness that makes my dick throb.


I'm drawn to her like no other. She stirs things in me I have no desire to feel, makes me long for things I shouldn't.


This is my game. I choose the players. I never play for keeps.


I don't believe in fate. I make my own destiny. I work hard and play harder. Luck is for pussies, karma for idiots. Me, I make shit happen.


Meeting her fucked up my plan. Threw me off my game.


I'm now face to face with my karma. Her name is Kat Rollins.


Kat

Ryker Eddison is the epitome of a player. You know the type: Mr. Get In and Get Out.


He's all about the chase, wanting just one night. Everyone knows this, I know this. Still, I find myself craving him, my greedy body betraying what my heart and mind already know: he will only bring me pain.


He's the guy that girls like me should avoid. I'm smart, I know better. But when I'm with him, I feel things I’ve never felt before. Things I never knew I wanted.


I can't deny it … I like the chase. The high is explosive but I'm afraid if I give in, I may end up losing more than I can handle: my heart.






My Review 



This book was like foreplay. Sweet, slow and with an intense sexual chemistry that carries you through its pages and leaves you wanting more. 


I am a huge fan of NA Romance and Gillian Jones’ debut novel My Minds Eye is the perfect mix of everything you could want out of a college romance with an added touch of suspense and an ending that leaves you filled with the warm fuzzies and a big smile on your face. 


This is Kat and Ryker’s story. 


Kat is a neurotic, self-confessed stress head and after a bad break up and a traumatic incident leaves her suffering PTSD, all she wants is to enjoy her final year of college with her life long best friend Claire by her side, and settle into their new apartment and jobs at Pub Fiction. The last thing she wants is another relationship screwing with her head or to even risk the complications that a one-night hook up might bring to her life. Until she crosses paths with the very attractive Ryker who despite his seemingly unwelcoming attitude towards her, stirs something deep inside that both confuses and excites her. 


Ryker is a self confessed manwhore with a twist. He works hard and he plays harder. He has strong goals for his future and even stronger rules for his life, especially when it comes to relationships. His golden rule being – He doesn’t do relationships at all. Why would he want Mrs Right when he can just enjoy Mrs Right Now? He has looks that make women weak at the knees with a panty dropping smile to match, and a line up of woman all hoping he’ll pick their lucky number next. He loves his life and couldn’t imagine ever wanting to ever change the way he lives it. Until Kat walks through the doors of his brother Levi’s Bar, Pub Fiction and one look at her threatens to completely upend his life. 


To put it simply, the opposites attract combination of Ryker and Kat was hot. Despite their best attempts to avoid each other, neither one could deny the impact the other was having on their lives. I honestly didn’t know if I was going to connect with Kat’s character at first, but as I watched her trying to overcome her anxieties and saw her blossoming into a sassier, stronger version of herself with the help of Ryker’s influence I found myself liking her more and more. And where do I even begin with Ryker! That growl! Sweet Jesus who wouldn’t be turned on by a male with a mouth like his. And the way we get to see the flip side of his personality and the sweetness that lies beneath that player facade as he struggles to understand his conflicted feelings towards Kat, just made him the epitome of a swoon worthy Alpha Male. And don’t even get me started on his honeybutter eyes! 


The Secondary Character’s were all great as well; From Claire and Levi the two closest to our Leads, to the girls that lived with Kat and Claire as well as the other Staff at Pub Fiction, the mixture of different personalities made the story all the more enjoyable to read and opened up so many more interesting storylines to hopefully follow, including that of Ryker’s Brother Levi who’s story I cannot wait to read about next.

Synopsis





Braunwyn

Four years ago, losing the love of my life almost destroyed me.


Years of being labeled and looked upon with disdain by everyone in my hometown almost wrecked me.


Four years ago, I became a mother and together we were enough… until I met him.


He wanted to rebuild my broken —I just didn’t know how to let him.


This is my story, of how one man’s love changed everything I thought I knew about life, love and myself.


Can Levi Eddison prove to be my restoration?


Levi

Everything in my world changed the day Braunwyn Daniels walked into my pub.


She was a woman of many contradictions. I recognized the happiness and sorrow each fighting its way to the surface from deep within.


I was drawn to her immediately.


Behind her long legs, chestnut brown hair and beautiful eyes lay a damaged soul.


I needed to change that —I just didn’t know how.


This is my story of how I met a broken girl and vowed to make her whole.


In the end, it turns out I knew nothing about true happiness until Braunwyn Daniels let me love her.






My Review 


On the Rocks is Book 2 in Gillian Jones’s Pub Fiction Series and follows the story of Levi, Ryker’s Brother from My Mind’s Eye Book #1. 


I don’t think I was fully prepared when I started this book for what an emotional ride it was going to be. This book surpasses My Mind’s Eye in so many ways and is such a credit to the author’s development as a writer and her ability to capture the raw physical and emotional pain that comes with the topics she has chosen to intertwine with her storyline. 


Right from the start in the About the Book section we are given some insight into the pain that the lead female character Braunwyn has faced in her life, but I still wasn’t prepared for how quickly the sheer emotional rawness of her story leaked off the pages and wrapped itself around my heart and stayed there long after the final page had been read. This is a story about survival not just in a physical sense but in an emotional one as well. 


Braunwyn is a young single mother, rejected by everyone in her family besides her Grandmother, she has spent the past four years struggling to overcome the worst kind of heartache while she fights to succeed at university so she can provide a good life for herself and her daughter. With the steps she has taken and with the support of her Grandmother and best friend London she is ready to step out of her comfort zone and attempt to start living again, with her first act being to apply for a job at Pub Fiction, the bar owned by Levi. 


Levi’s whole life is Pub Fiction. It is his pride and joy, his dream and his one true mistress. Although he has never been hurt or jaded by lost love he has simply never felt the desire or met anyone that made him want to attempt anything more than one night stands. And he is ok with that. His business ensures a willing line up of single interested ladies and his killer smile and smooth sex appeal does the rest. Life is perfect. Until Braunwyn, the beautiful, timid and completely inexperienced new job applicant walks into his bar and completely knocks him on his arse. He doesn’t understand the effect she has on him or why, but all he knows is he can’t let her walk out of his life without finding out more about her. 


The chemistry between these two is as beautiful as it is off the charts sensual, but the past tragic events of her life has left Braunwyn unable to open herself up to the feelings that are stirred within her whenever she is around Levi. She can feel the effect he has on her, see the smile that she thought would never exist for a man again linger on her face more and more with each passing interaction, and knows how much she has come to rely on his friendship. But she also believes she is broken, that the truth behind her past will destroy everything it touches and so she is unable to let him in. 


Levi has definitely found himself a permanent place in my heart. His desire to make Braunwyn smile, even when she pushes him away. The gorgeous interactions with her daughter and the way he looks out for them both. This was truly a story as heart-warming as it was heartbreaking. It’s a story about love, loss, trust and healing. About finding the strength to step outside of our comfort zone, taking a chance and breaking down the walls that keep us from finding and letting in happiness. 


From heart break to heart warming and every emotion in between and an ending that just made my insides melt. I can not wait to see what this author does next.

One Last Shot (Pub Fiction #3)


(Claire & Matt's Story)





Synopsis


My name is Claire Knox. 


People say I'm the female version of a player, a boyslayer...if you’re fluent in urban dictionary speak. 


I hate long term relationships. I’ll never commit to sticking around long enough to get attached to the notion of love, marriage or the proverbial two point five kids. 


No siree. Not this girl. 


There's no way I'll let myself get hurt by losing someone I love ever again. 


Been there, felt that. 


Consider me damaged goods if you will; but I'm happy. 


Or so I thought...until my path crossed with his again.
