CAN’T HARDLY BREATHE Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with an irresistible Original Heartbreakers story about a woman who’s never felt desired and the man who wants her more than air to breathe…

Bullied in high school, Dorothea Mathis’s past is full of memories she’d rather forget. But there’s one she can’t seem to shake—her longstanding crush on former Army Ranger Daniel Porter. Now that the sexy bad boy has started using her inn as his personal playground, she should kick him out…but his every heated glance makes her want to join him instead.

Daniel returned to Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma to care for his ailing father and burn off a little steam with no strings attached. Though he craves the curvy Dorothea night and day, he’s as marred by his past as she is by hers. The more he desires her, the more he fears losing her.

But every sizzling encounter leaves him desperate for more, and soon Daniel must make a choice: take a chance on love or walk away forever.

Elemental Lies by Elle Middaugh

πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šMy ReviewπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š
It is rare to see a paranormal book that has elementals as the supernatural creatures. I love it though as it gives the feel that anyone could be one. This book has Val facing choices and fighting for what she believes in. Not all is settled and the ends leaves you wanting more! Fantastic read for those looking for something a little bit different!


Elemental Lies
Elle Middaugh
(The Essential Elements, #2)
Publication date: July 24th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Valerie Moore is an Elemental, a person who commands one of the classical elements of wind, water, fire, or earth. She’s special, though. She controls two—fire and water—though sometimes it seems like they control her.
After the accidental exposure of Elementals to humanity, Valerie finds herself—and all of her kind—struggling to attain equality. Three different groups fight to secure leadership, and with all of their hidden agendas, she doesn’t know which side to choose. The balance between peaceful cohabitation and all-out war is precarious, at best.
When a chance meeting brings Val and earth Elemental Cade Landston back together, everything changes. She realizes what she knew in the beginning—that he’s the one she wants. Her desire to win him over draws her closer to him, and his vengeful mission to hunt down her murderous grandfather brings them both closer to trouble.
From mysterious doppelgangers to reckless rescue missions, scapegoat bombings, and evolving Elemental powers, Valerie strains to keep up.
All she knows is she must stop her grandfather at all costs. To do so, she has to figure out the truth, but how can she do so when almost everyone she knows has been telling lies?
Sequel to:

The Thirteenth Gate by Kat Ross

πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šMy ReviewπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š
Anyone who knows me knows I hate to read historical books, doesn't matter whether it's romance or horror, I can't stand it. Then I read The Daemoniac by Kat Ross, I absolutely loved it. So when I had the chance to read this second book in the series I jumped on it. These books are historical but they don't read that way and that is my favorite thing about them. I also like the characters and the plots and subtle nods to history, that even someone like me can appreciate. This book takes us across the ocean to London and the hunt for Jack the Ripper. I love this book and the previous and applaud Kat for getting me to read and like something historical.


The Thirteenth Gate
Kat Ross
(Dominion Mysteries #2)
Published by: Acorn Publishing
Publication date: June 26th 2017
Genres: Historical, Mystery, Young Adult
Winter 1888. At an asylum in the English countryside, a man suspected of being Jack the Ripper kills an orderly and flees into the rain-soaked night. His distraught keepers summon the Lady Vivienne Cumberland—who’s interviewed their patient and isn’t sure he’s a man at all. An enigmatic woman who guards her own secrets closely, Lady Vivienne knows a creature from the underworld when she sees one. And he’s the most dangerous she’s ever encountered.
As Jack rampages through London, Lady Vivienne begins to suspect what he’s searching for. And if he finds it, the doors to purgatory will be thrown wide open…
Across the Atlantic, an archaeologist is brutally murdered after a Christmas Eve gala at the American Museum of Natural History. Certain peculiar aspects of the crime attract the interest of the Society for Psychical Research and its newest investigator, Harrison Fearing Pell. Is Dr. Sabelline’s death related to his recent dig in Alexandria? Or is the motive something darker?
As Harry uncovers troubling connections to a serial murder case she’d believed was definitively solved, two mysteries converge amid the grit and glamor of Gilded Age New York. Harry and Lady Vivienne must join forces to stop an ancient evil. The key is something called the Thirteenth Gate. But where is it? And more importantly, who will find it first?


Author Bio:
Kat Ross worked as a journalist at the United Nations for ten years before happily falling back into what she likes best: making stuff up. She lives in Westchester with her kid and a few sleepy cats. Kat is also the author of the dystopian thriller Some Fine Day (Skyscape, 2014), about a world where the sea levels have risen sixty meters. She loves magic, monsters and doomsday scenarios. Preferably with mutants.

My heart breaks for her and all she has been through. These two were meant to save each other. Loved all the twists and turns of this book and as I've said many times before I will be impatiently waiting for the next in this series! Oh and I'm with B, pancakes! Thanks Lexi for allowing me to read an Arc and share my opinion on it.

*If you haven't already read Blood Laws before starting this pick it up and enjoy, then come back to Tom, it'll be worth it! Promise!

Trailer

Sneak peek

“I promised myself if I ever got out of that hell, I would never rely on another person for anything ever again. But you’re the only one who brings me a sense of peace and comfort, and that terrifies me. I don’t want to rely on you, Tom. But I can’t seem to help myself.” Her words both warmed and chilled him. He removed his hand from the wall near her hip to palm her cheek and felt some of the chill dissipate when she pressed into his touch. “Leaning on someone for comfort doesn’t mean you’re weak, sweetheart. But I understand where you’re coming from; you want to be able to protect yourself.” He felt the same way, which was why these feelings for her confused him. Whenever he considered leaving the CRF, he only thought about how to look after himself, but she changed everything. A life of loneliness no longer appealed. “You also make me feel strong,” she told him. “In addition to the peace and comfort, I mean.” “Yeah?” She nodded. “And you teach me things. It may have been a diversion at first, but I think you enjoyed training me.” His grin was automatic. “Oh, I more than enjoyed it.” He fucking loved it. “What did you enjoy most?” she asked, a smile in her voice. So much better than the sadness lurking there before. He liked playing with flirtatious Amelia. “Everything.” From the gun stance lessons to rolling around with her on the ground, he enjoyed every minute. If he died soon, those would be the memories he’d miss most. And their one explosive night together. “All right, but what did you like teaching me most?” He ran his thumb over her bottom lip. “Defensive moves, even though you about killed me.” “How’s that?” Her mouth curled down at the edges, and he traced it with his thumb. “ ‘Straddle me again,’ ” he quoted. “Ever say that to me again, and I’ll well and truly straddle you.” Arousal darkened her gaze. “I think I’d like that.”
