Burnt Sugar Ace series book two by Layne Harper & Giveaway



Burnt Sugar (ACE Series #2) by Layne Harper
Release Date: June 28, 2017

Synopsis
He left me crumpled in a ball on the worn hardwoods where my living room furniture used to be. He fed me to the paparazzi. He teased me with his new album—full of songs written about me. Then, I never heard from him again.

Did I let Aaron Emerson break me? Of course not. I’m MK Landry. I turned my mess into my message. I poured my heart out to my fans on NoPinkCaddy.com. Then, I picked up the phone and made the scariest call of my life. The rest, as they say, is history.

She dropped the worst line in the history of breakup lines: be the man I deserve. What does that even mean? I ran. I had no idea how to handle her injury, anger, and disappointment. She gave up on me when I needed her the most.

My life has marched forward. I’m in the middle of my comeback, sold-out tour. I have a model girlfriend. On the outside, my world looks rock star perfect. But Mary Kay Landry left a void in my soul that no amount of fame or time spent with others can fill. I’m stuck in MK purgatory where she haunts my nights and fills my days.

Burnt Sugar is the second book in the ACE series.

Layne Harper is a mom, wife, book junkie, and sports fanatic. However, when the kids and husband are safely ensconced at school and work, she slips into her office with her three rescue dogs and writes until it’s time to drive carpool. Her children have no idea about her secret life (and they hopefully never will), and the dogs won’t tell. She’s always writing in her mind though and making notes on whatever is close by; envelopes, napkins, a kid’s homework…

Sexy and clever, Jasper quickly tricks Mimi into dating him in return for his help getting the rest of his crew to take their clothes off for charity.
When he demands certain conditions be attached to his help, Mimi soon discovers he has a plan to win her over and finally take her to bed. But does she want to be another notch on this hot fireman's bed post? Should she let her guard down and have a bit of fun, knowing he'll soon move on to his next conquest?
Can Mimi and Jasper join forces and raise the money they need, without Mimi's heart melting from the heat between them?

Snippet 1:
“We’re in trouble,” Mimi burst through the door of the fire station, startling the crew who sat around the lunch table in various states of undress. “Oh, I’m sorry!” She blushed a deep red as Jasper came toward her.
“What’s wrong?”
“Can I talk to you in private, please?”
She backtracked past reception, stopping to glare at Kelly who’d happily let her go into the lunchroom. “Thanks for the warning that they were half-dressed!”
Snippet 2:
They stared at each other, electricity crackling across the table between them. Mimi was glad he had dropped her hand when he sat back because contact with him right now may have been her undoing. She wanted to say no to this deal—dating Jasper was a bad idea that could only lead to more heartbreak. So what if he had saved some money? So what if he helped old ladies navigate heavy doors? Who cared that he was good with children and loved cats?
A voice whispered in her ear, You care, Mimi. You're dying for a repeat of that night and the chance to spend more time with him. You want to know him better. Admit it to yourself, if no one else.
“I already told you: I'm not interested in being one of your conquests.”

Absolution by MissyJohnson - Book review- Release Tour




Title: Absolution
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2017



Blurb

Declan James was the perfect guy.
He was sweet. Charming. Caring. Until he wasn’t.

Fourteen years ago, his actions tore apart my family. He ruined my sister’s life and nothing was ever the same again. But now, a decade later, he’s back.

When he walks into my office, asking for my help, I’m shocked, but nothing prepares me for what I’m about to learn. I see how far he’s gone to redeem himself and I know that he’s changed. I also know that, as a priest, he’s more off limits than ever.

If I help him, my family will never forgive me.

If I fall in love with him, I will never forgive myself.

Excerpt

“You’re not the first person to be shocked by my choice of calling.”

“Your family?” I guess. He nods. “I’m assuming they probably had bigger and better things in mind for you, but it’s a step up from rapist right?” His eyes widen and I cringe. Shit, I can’t believe I just said that.

“I can see why you might think that, but my father is very anti-religion, so I’m not sure he would agree,” he smirks and rubs his chiselled jawline, giving me a pointed look. “Are you done now?”

“I’m sorry that was way out of line," I mumble, admitting I went too far. "Sometimes I say things without thinking.”

“It’s okay,” He shrugs. His dark eyes penetrate mine. I'm shaking, but I hold his gaze, refusing to look away. “You get a free pass today to say whatever you like to me and then tomorrow you need to start giving me a chance. Is that fair?”

I’m not loving the part where I give him a chance, but I have so many questions burning inside of me that I’m dying to ask that I sit forward, and place my hands under my thighs.

“Okay I’ll play,” I say, staring at him. I question everything he says because it hurts too much to believe him. Why should he get to move on? “Why this?”

“Because it was the only way I could see getting my life back on track. I was at the point where I had nothing to live for, and God changed that for me. He gave me hope. I had something that was mine. I was making a difference.”

“How long have you been a Priest for?” I say the word like it’s dirty but only because he’s makes it that way. It’s like he’s taken one of the purest professions in the world and tainted it.

“Five years. After I got out of prison, I was in a bad place. Everything that happened with Cecily really messed me up and then hearing that she…. His voice trails off like he can’t complete his train of thought, so I make him, because he doesn’t get to do this. He doesn’t get to make this about him.

“You mean how she killed herself?” I say. I stare at him, my anger fuelling the strength I’m somehow finding within myself to confront him. This is what I’ve wanted for so long, to be able to face him and show him how much he hurt me. “How she ended her life after what you did to her and the way your family dragged her through the mud. Is that what you mean? You can’t even say it, Declan. Imagine how hard it was for me to live it.”

“I never wanted that all I wanted to do was plead guilty and move on—”

“Move on?” I whisper, tears spilling down my cheeks. “Like my sister got to move on? Like my dad moved on by ramming his car into a tree? You ruined our lives. Why should you get to move on?”

“I’m sorry about your father,” he says softly.

“You’re sorry?” I laugh. I throw my hands up in the air. “Well, so long as you’re sorry.”

“You have every right to be angry at me Hannah, but I’m just trying to explain it from my point of view. You asked me why I became a priest. This is why. Everything that happened is why.”

“But you don’t get to explain,” I whisper. “Because it’s not fair. All you get to do is sit there and take whatever I decide I need to say to you in order for me to get through this. That’s the only thing you need to do here. You don’t get to justify what you did, or tell me how much you’ve changed, because I don’t care. All I care about is being able to be in the same room as you without feeling like I’m going to be sick. Is that too much to ask?” 

"No. No it’s not," he mumbles. His eyes cast downward and I laugh. He can’t even look at me.





Book review

4 stars

Absolution .....................formal release from ones guilt, obligation or form of punishment ... the act of forgiving for something that has been done wrongfully or a sinful to another. 


Declan James was the poster boy - every girls dream well so most thought. Until one night 14 years ago changed his life and many others. 

Now 14 years onwards his past has come back to haunt him so to speak. Gorgeous , brutal and offensive and with a wraith that she throws upon him there is no escaping his past despite his decision to absolve his sins. 

Declan has joined the church hoping his penance pays for some of his wrong doing from the past. But his past has other ideas for him - she will not let him forget and will not forgive. 

Hannah's past has come back to taunt her and haunt her. She cant believe her eyes and the circumstances she has come across. ** Sexy and sinful - how can one man she completely loathes have her heart skipping a beat and her loins tingling ** 

Both on a misson to protect one little girl, the past catches up with them, lies are unfolded and love is found among two unlikely people. Redemption and forgiveness , heartache and loss .. Absolution is a heartfelt story of lies, raw and gritty past mistakes and learning to live even among ruins. 

As a reader I do enjoy a read with angst, and a story line that unveils some mystery. The author did a good job of creating her characters with depth and definition. With a well delivered plot and smooth flowing story line this story will keep you intrigued to the last pages.

It shows character growth , and the capacity to forgive. 

I would love to have seen an epilogue of some sort maybe .. The discovery of the truth more unveiled and maybe some compensation for past mistakes. But overall I think the characters were happy with there outcome either way.

The chemistry between Declan and Hannah was inevitable, despite everything within the story line the truth was unfolded, forgiveness given, and some closure after 14 years of heartache. 

As for Hannah's sister she has a lot to account for .. Not my favourite character.. By all means lol 

A captivating read, that delivers us forgiveness, love, loss and redemption .
