Pushed (Held #2) ~ Kimberly A. Bettes

Ron Redwine is an up-and-coming author, a man whose lifelong dream of achieving celebrity status in the literary world is finally becoming a reality. But Ron isn't only a writer. He's also a sadistic serial killer who kidnaps, tortures, and murders women in his basement.

Nicole Lee is a beloved wife and mother. She's also the only woman who has ever escaped Ron's clutches. After being held in captivity for nearly a year, she found a way out, a way to be free once again and go back to her life. Only she can't. The life she knew before her abduction is gone. Separated from her husband and son, Nicole is psychologically broken. She spends months in a mental health facility trying to put the past behind her so she can return to her family.

Upon her release, Nicole hides herself away in a fleabag motel where she wrestles with her demons alone. When an interview on the local news advertises the last two stops on Ron's latest book tour, she becomes enraged. Furious that he's able to live his life happily while she's reduced to an existence filled with guilt and despair, she decides to take matters into her own hands.

Pushed too far, Nicole seeks her revenge, using Ron's own devices against him.

For mature audiences only. From the dark mind of Kimberly A. Bettes comes the highly anticipated sequel to HELD. Be warned: This book is every bit as raw and gritty as the first.

Therapist ~ Jaden Wilkes

I am a sociopath.

I know this because I diagnosed myself.

I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology from a very prestigious university.

I am charming, attractive, and you probably want to sleep with me.

I take what I want, when I want, and I enjoy picking the most tragic of all my patients to experiment with.

I have no remorse, I am unrelenting in my pursuit of tragedy, and I am about to meet my match.

Her name is not important, I am only allowed to call her Mistress. She is a femme fatale, a patient, and now an obsession.

She will destroy me, I will do anything to get inside of her.

I can already feel her inside of me.

**Trigger warning. This novel is not a love story, but more of a journey through a few short days in the life of a madman. What you see is not always what you get, reality is altered through his eyes and sometimes there is no happily ever after.

New Release ~ SOLD on St. Patrick's Day by Juliana Conners

SOLD on St. Patrick's Day: 

A Virgin and a Billionaire Romance.

By Author Juliana Conners
Hosted by Jo&Isalovebooks

SYNOPSIS

I'm paying a million dollars to pluck her clover on St. Patrick's Day.
The job is supposed to be easy.
Purchase her loyalty—at any price.
She may have witnessed my Irish gangster father commit a crime.
I'm sent to Boston from Ireland to find out what she knows, deal with it if I have to, and move on.
Simple, right?
When I find out she's a virgin, I think it's only the cherry— that I get to pop— on top of the already sweet-as-sin treat that is taking her beautiful curves for my own.
It's business as usual for me— an alpha as f*ck Irishman who doesn't let distractions keep me from the goal at hand.
There's just one problem.
I wasn't expecting either of us to so completely enjoy what I have to do to her to break her spirit and earn her trust.
After I buy her body, will she steal my heart?

Lucky You ~ Erika Carter

Three women, early twenties, find themselves aimlessly adrift in Erika Carter’s fierce and darkly funny debut novel, Lucky You. Ellie, Chloe and Rachel are friends (sort of); waitresses at the same tired bar in the Arkansas college town they’ve stuck around in too long. Each is becoming unmoored in her own way: Ellie obliterates all feeling with alcohol and self-destructive acts of sexual promiscuity; Chloe pulls out patches of her hair and struggles to keep incipient mental illness at bay; changeable Rachel has fallen under the sway of a messianic boyfriend with whom she’s agreed to live off-grid for a year in order to return to “health” and asks Ellie and Chloe to join them in “The Project”. In a remote, rural house in the Ozarks, nearly undone by boredom and the brewing tension between them, each tries to solve the conundrum of being alive.

By turns funny, knowing and hauntingly sad, Lucky You delivers the kind of study in damage and detachment that made Mary Gaitskill’s Bad Behavior or Joan Didion’s Play It As It Lays so memorable. With startling exactitude and wickedly deadpan humor, it lays bare the emotional core of its characters with surgical precision. The writing is deft and controlled, as natural and unforced as breath—which makes it impossible to look away.

Strange Girls ~ Tara Dawn & Yolanda Olson

Two strangers. Two different lives. One situation.

Sissy
Who would’ve thought that I could find
A friend trapped on the other side.
It’s a mystery to me, you are.
Am I a mystery to you?
Do you want to unlock my mind,
The way I want to unlock you?
Oh, I never thought that I could find
A friend outside … outside?
You know how I feel about leaving this place.


Artemis I feel eyes on me.
I try to meet them, but they always look away.
I wonder what she looks like or if she'll ever say hello.
What is my life becoming that I'm looking for a friend?
Maybe I'm just losing it, or maybe I'm just paranoid.
There are things that I need answered, but I'm not one to wait for what I want.
Everything happens at its own pace and for right now, I'll just watch life unfold.
