~ Excerpt ~

Ch 26

It was then her phone started to ring, with her free hand she fished for the phone in her huge Bag, which doubled as her briefcase.
“Rebecca Keane well I never, Glad your home…. Did you miss me?”
Said the voice at the other end of the phone,
“Open the door”.
She was still moving to the tune, smiling to herself as she shimmied to the door. Don’t ask her why she did what she was told; she probably would have blamed it on the jetlag.
Upon opening the door, was her voice at the other end of her phone.
His eyes lit up at the sight of her, a smile forming on his hansom face as their gazes met. They continued to talk on their devices. He was standing there, one arm extended leaning against the door join.
He was wearing a formal separate suit jacket with jeans and a simple fitted white T. Around his neck, a cashmere scarf which hung loosely over the lapels of his jacket.

He looked gorgeous, as soon as she saw him as her heart started to pound. She could see his biceps through the outline of the fitted jacket. She wanted him, she could feel the ache within her grow.

He still spoke into his phone toying with her.

“Come here”, he smiled at her with his come to bed eyes that burned right through her.

Mocking him she spoke.

“Uh uh, if you want me, you come here” as she pointed to the ground before her.

She looked back at him, defiantly. Jackson didn’t have to be told twice as he moved towards her, sweeping her off her feet. His mouth firmly planted on hers.

“So Jackson, have you been a good boy while I’ve been away?” she asked
“I Rebecca, have been a very good boy, while you were away. Its’s been a long 2 weeks believe me. I want you as the song say’s ‘Right here Right now’” his lips caressing her neck tenderly.

“Do you know how much I’ve missed you?”

He pulled her hand down towards the bulge in his trousers. She laughed

“Are you sure”

She gave him a little squeeze. She could feel the need in him,

“Then let’s see how much”.

Rebecca grabbed Jackson’s scarf, pulling him in the direction of her bedroom.

Review for My Side by Tara Brown ~ Camryn

my side

~ Synopsis ~

Erin Benson felt like she’d won the lottery when she arrived all the way from North Dakota with the keys to her first home in hand.
Crisp white walls: Check.
Breathtaking view of downtown Boston: Check.
Minutes from Northeastern School of Law: Check.

But home is not always where the heart is. Sometimes it’s where you find Mr. Random shacked up and sprawled out on what was supposed to be your new bed.
Between the bear spray and the handcuffs, she discovers a terrible mistake has been made.
Lochlan hasn’t broken into her new home to sleep with a seedy barmaid…he owns half.

With emotions running on high, Erin is determined to tough it out until a solution can be found.
The tight quarters seem smaller with his accumulated clutter and bizarre sleeping schedule. It also doesn’t help that he’s the new lead singer for Thin Ice, an indie band on its rise to fame.
What happens when a quiet bookworm gets stuck with a relentless rocker?
What happens when the things you see are not the things you get?

~ Review ~

This was a great light read for me! I started off having me laugh ass off at the way Erin and Lochlan met! I just loved Erin and how paranoid she was! I would totally travel around with pepper spray and us an the worst possible times ever! Lochlan is an uber hot rock star who doesnt let on that he is a star when first meeting. I really like the way the book talks about two lochlans, the performer Lochlan, and the real Lochlan. In most cases I get annoyed with the girl is shown to be beyond insecure about their relationships, I tend to enjoy the fiery girls more. For some reason it didnt over annoy me in this book, I think that may have been because Erins insecurities were based on a tramatic past event that causes her to be more nervous than normal. I also like that Tara mixed that nervous insecurity with a bit fiesty hot headedness! This is a good book that is a light easy read! I give it 4 stars!

~ Synopsis ~

Can a relationship survive on love alone? Is love truly enough?

Sometimes even after a broken heart is mended, cracks remain, and the same doubts and insecurities that once yanked us apart seep in.

Can true love hold Dane and Alex together or will their hearts completely shatter like glass?

Excerpt ~

I head toward the bedroom and find Alex sprawled out on the center of the bed. I’m still pissed at her for dancing with him.  I don’t know what she was thinking. I hate that fucker and seeing him with his hands on my girl was enough to send me over the edge. I immediately wanted to walk over to them but I stopped, telling myself over and over that there would be no way I could control my temper if I went anywhere near him.

I kept my eyes on them, ready to pounce if he took it any further. I started to cool down a little but deep shades of red clouded by vision when I saw him press his body closer to her.  My mind was made up; I was heading over to punch that idiot in the face if I got through the packed crowd.   I was still about ten feet away when I saw him press his lips to her cheek and it halted me in place; she let him do it.  Didn’t push him away or tell him to stop.  It took everything I had to not break his neck.  I was even more pissed at Alex for letting him do it.

I hate feeling this way.

“Dane,” she whispers, lifting her head from the pillow.  She glances at the clock.  “You’re late getting home.”

Yeah, I had a couple drinks after work.  I needed them.  “It was busy,” I say, sitting on the edge of the bed to remove my shoes.

gail mchughI’ve always been a lover of writing, but mostly dabbled in creating poetry while raising my three beautiful children. I am grateful my husband of fifteen years has supported me—albeit sometimes kicking and screaming—as I pursue this “hobby” of mine. Without his help, writing would be an impossible endeavor.

In late June 2012, I felt an urgent tug of my pen, and I began writing one of my first novels, Collide. Although I thought it might never see the light of day, it gave me the courage to plunge headfirst onto a path I had never considered before.
