About Ride Wild (Raven Riders #3)

Brotherhood. Club. Family. They live and ride by their own rules. These are the Raven Riders…

Wild with grief over the death of his wife, Sam “Slider” Evans merely lives for his two sons. Nothing holds his interest anymore—not even riding his bike or his membership in the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. But that all changes when he hires a new babysitter.

Recently freed from a bad situation by the Ravens, Cora Campbell is determined to bury the past. When Slider offers her a nanny position, she accepts, needing the security and time to figure out what she wants from life. Cora adores his sweet boys, but never expected the red-hot attraction to their brooding, sexy father. If only he would notice her…

Slider does see the beautiful, fun-loving woman he invited into his home. She makes him feel too much, and he both hates it and yearns for it. But when Cora witnesses something she shouldn’t have, the new lives they’ve only just discovered are threatened. Now Slider must claim—and protect—what’s his before it’s too late.

EXCERPT:

“Hey, Cora,” he said, his gravelly morning voice so damn sexy.
“Hey,” she said, tilting her head back to look him in the eye. She wondered if she should get off him, but didn’t really want to.
Not making any move to get up, Slider just looked down at her. “How you feeling?”
“A lot better,” she said, hyperaware that her hand was lying on his chest. His heartbeat faintly registered against her palm. “Still achy and a little off, but better.”
“Good. You should probably take it easy today, though. Whatever that was isn’t likely out of your system yet.”
She nodded. “I will.”
Talking like this, their faces so close, felt so damn intimate that Cora could almost imagine that nothing existed outside of Slider’s bed. She almost didn’t want it to. Especially when his arm squeezed a little tighter around her shoulders and brought them just a little closer. Cora shifted into his embrace, pressing her chest totally flush against his die, and sliding her thigh up until—
Oh, hell. Until she felt the part of him she’d accidentally seen. And it was hard.
He sucked in a breath, and his hand clamped around his thigh. “Shit, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean—”

Blog Tour: THE CRESSWELL PLOT by Eliza Wass [Review]


"It's no secret that I have a thing for reads about teens dealing with strict religious families or that become involved with cults."


The woods were insane in the dark, terrifying and magical at the same time. But best of all were the stars, which trumpeted their light into the misty dark. 
Castella Cresswell and her five siblings-Hannan, Caspar, Mortimer, Delvive, and Jerusalem- know what it's like to be different. For years, their world has been confined to their ramshackle family home deep in the woods of upstate New York. They abide by the strict rule of God, whose messages come directly from their father. 
Slowly, Castley and her siblings start to test the boundaries of the laws that bind them. But, at school, they're still the freaks they've always been to the outside world. Marked by their plain clothing. Unexplained bruising. Utter isolation from their classmates. That is, until Castley is forced to partner with the totally irritating, totally normal George Gray, who offers her a glimpse of a life filled with freedom and choice.  
Castley's world rapidly expands beyond the woods she knows so well and the beliefs she once thought were the only truths. There is a future waiting for her if she can escape her father's grasp, but Castley refuses to leave her siblings behind. Just as she begins to form a plan, her father makes a chilling announcement: the Cresswells will soon return to their home in heaven. With time running out on all of their lives, Castley must expose the depth of her father's lies. The forest has buried the truth in darkness for far too long. Castley might be their last hope for salvation.

My Review:


It's no secret that I have a thing for reads about teens dealing with strict religious families or that become involved with cults. Having spent my teens in a situation of that nature there's something about reading novels where young women find their way out of those circumstances is a balm on an old scar. 

It took me a while to get around to picking THE CRESSWELL PLOT up because I wasn't quite sure it was going to be in the vein of what I look for. Fortunately, the release of the paperback came at a time when I was very much in the mood for a read as dark and hopeful as this one. While I would call it a predictable story with no surprises, Wass is a great storyteller and manages to make it an enjoyable page-turner in spite of it's lack of novelty. Castley is complex and torn between contrasting loyalties. I admired her strength in the face of so much adversity from both within her home and the town beyond. 


What held me back from quite loving it was the unresolved bits left at the end of the story. There were a couple of very key elements that weren't explained that I felt were essential to mesh the whole plot together smoothly. Not deal breaker, but a bit disappointing. If you've enjoyed novels like The Book of Ivy, The May Queen Murders, or Devoted, you're sure to find this a compelling and worthwhile read. I much recommend it.  (4 stars)

Cover Reveal: DIGNITY by Jay Crownover

   

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jay Crownover, comes the second standalone title in her The Breaking Point romantic suspense series, DIGNITY. Don’t miss the amazing cover below, and pre-order your copy today!

   

Cover designed By Hang Le

 

About DIGNITY:

Looks can be deceiving.

I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter.

I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth.

I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead.

I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else.

That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty.

I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back.

When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home.

What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.

 

DIGNITY is coming October 17, 2017! Pre-order your copy today!
