Love on the Edge of Time by Julie A. Richman

Publishing Date: November 13th, 2017

He likes whiskey and wild women

She likes Ben & Jerry’s

He’s about to get kicked out of his own band

She ate her way off the Miss America pageant circuit

What could these two possibly have in common?

A psychiatrist

A lot of unresolved issues

A whole bunch of shared lifetimes

And a love that is never-ending

As bad boy rocker, Jesse Winslow, and former pageant queen, Kylie Martin, each fight the demons screwing up their lives, the one person who holds the key to healing their ills and reuniting two souls that have searched for one another, lifetime after lifetime, is the only one who knows the whole truth.

And keeping that truth from them may just be in preeminent psychiatrist Dr. Claire Stoddard’s best interests.

Claire has committed the ultimate sin in the medical world. She’s fallen for the one man she’s forbidden to love.

Her patient, Jesse Winslow.

And she’s not about to lose him to Kylie Martin… Again.

 

Melanie’s 3-Star Review:

Julie A. Richman’s Love on the Edge of Time is a unique love story that defies time itself. I went into this book blind and I have to admit that it took me on an unexpected and surprising journey. I thought that the author did a great job with the plot—very well thought out and creative. I appreciated how different this was compared to all the books I’m accustomed to reading.

 There was something so attractive about Jesse’s character that went beyond his rock star image. What I really loved about his character was his courage to clean up after realizing just how messed up his life had become. I always find that a character’s strength is best measured during their darkest hours—much like in real life. By reaching back out to his therapist Claire, Jesse not only opens the possibilities of what his life could lead to when living cleanly and healthy but also discovers a whole new realm through regression therapy.

 Kylie who is also a patient of Dr. Claire Stoddard catches Jessie’s eyes from the start. There is this inexplicable pull between them that even they both can’t seem to understand. While there were aspects of Kylie’s character that I admired—like her self-confidence and her love for life, there was also something so baffling about her. It was like, she was one person at certain times and another at other moments. The way her character was introduced was a little strange for me. I honestly thought maybe she had nymphomania issues that she was being treated for but then it turns out that it had nothing to do with it at all… Hrm.

 I have to admit, I did have some trouble with the 3rd person narration (as I always do). But there were some steamy scenes in this book that I found so provocative. I loved that there were so many different elements to them – like the settings and the situations that they were in. It was never the same so that kept my interest going. If you are looking for a book unlike most and one that is a change of your normal pace, then I think this one is for you.

Excerpt:

This time he didn’t text. He just called, waking her at two-fifteen a.m.

“Bare-ly dressed again tonight?”

Her laugh, filled with sleep was gruff. “Barely dressed every night.”

“What exactly do you have on?”

“A pink tank top and pink silk bikini.”

“Take them off,” he ordered.

“Excuse me,” there was an element of surprise in Kylie’s voice.

“You heard me. Take them off. Now.” Just hearing rustling on the other end of the line, he could feel his cock stiffen and it felt damn good after all this time. Baby, I’m back, he thought.

“We’re having phone sex? But, Jesse, we haven’t even kissed yet,” her protest was weak. And even she knew it.

“Yes, we’re having phone sex, and when I get back to New York, we’re going to do a lot more than kiss. You’ve friend-zoned me, Toots, and I’m busting out.”

Kylie was smiling on her end of the phone. Friend-zoned Jesse Fucking Winslow? Was he serious? “Nobody puts Jesse in a friend-zone,” she couldn’t help herself.

“Are they off?” He totally ignored her joke.

“Mmm-hmm.”

“What was that?” he asked, his voice gruff and serious.

“Yes, they’re off.”

“Okay, spread your legs, and with your phone, take a picture of your pussy for me.”

“Seriously?” She knew she was blushing in the dark.

“Take the picture, Kylie.”

“Okay, but if you sell this to the paparazzi, I will kill you.” There was a rustling sound, then, “Oh, my God, I can’t believe I’m doing this.”

He laughed.

“Okay, here it comes. I hope it’s photogenic. It would be really embarrassing to have a non-photogenic pussy.”

Pulling the phone from his ear to look, Kylie could hear his moan, exciting her even more.

“So photogenic, Toots, just like the rest of you. And I love the red landing strip. It’s so hot. Oh, man, I love this. Spread your legs wider and use one hand to spread your lips open for me and send me another.”

Following his directions, she did as he requested.

Off the Ice (Hat Trick #1) by Avon Gale, Piper Vaughn Review

Off the Ice (Hat Trick #1)

35482402
Tristan Holt is nothing if not pragmatic. Despite a flourishing career as a defenseman for the Atlanta Venom, Tristan knows he can’t play hockey forever. One day he’ll retire—if an injury doesn’t force him to hang up his skates first. His backup plan? Finishing his business degree. But he doesn’t count on a very inappropriate attraction to his standoffish sociology professor, Sebastian Cruz.

Sebastian is on the bottom rung of the Sociology Department at Georgia State. He has his sights set on tenure, and he can’t afford to be distracted, especially not by a sexy student with a body straight out of Sebastian’s dreams. No matter how much Tristan tempts him, that’s one line Sebastian won’t cross. At least not until summer classes end. After that, everything is fair game.

But Sebastian lives loud and proud, and Tristan is terrified of being the first out player in the NHL. Neither of them can afford to risk their hearts when they can’t imagine a happily ever after. The problem is, unlike hockey, when it comes to love, there are no rules.

IMG_1132

This is my first book Avon Gale and my third by Piper Vaughn. I was a little scared to start this book! I just read a hockey book by another author (that didn’t work out for me.)  So I was hoping this hockey book different. I’m so glad I didn’t shy away from this book!
I really enjoyed this book!
Teacher/student books are my ultimate weakness! Add a guy still in the closet and willing to come of for the other person! You just had me right from the start!

This book really did it for me. I love how everything unfolded in this book! It had the right amount of sports talk. I don’t watch hockey. But I felt it was explained well enough where I didn’t feel lost.

I loved Sebastian and Tristan. They worked together. I loved how they they didn’t play childish games with each other. There was never any long dragged out angst moments between them. And I absolutely loved their sex scene!

I’m really looking forward to Ryu’s story and hopefully Bellzie too!!

Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away.

As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas.

Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind.

But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can’t let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?

Ryan’s Bed By Tijan Cover Reveal

Ryan’s Bed By Tijan Cover Reveal

RYANFINALCOVER

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.

I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left…

I didn’t.
I didn’t jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
I relaxed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.

I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.

The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.

Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.

Wow… talk about night and day with this book.

I couldn’t wait to start this book. I just finished Breaching the Contract and immediately jumped into this book! I absolutely loved Breaching the Contract. Tristian and Kat’s book was a good start to this series.
A series I thought was separate from any of this authors other work.

Ok…. I have a thing about cross jumping characters in series. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. In this case having read the first book in this series. Bringing in a member from the Wind Dragons into this book was a BIG WHAT moment for me. I mean… why bring in a totally different series that has nothing to do with this series.
All I kept thinking was the author is trying to get people interested in her other series. So she’s dropping little hints here and there.
I was hoping for a clean break on a totally new series. I was really disappointed by this.

Because… Luckily I’ve read all of the Wind Dragon MC books. But I couldn’t for the life of me remember these characters Demon, Darren & Valentina at all. (Because I wasn’t in the right frame of mind. I had no clue I was diving back into a WD MC book!) And then I’m trying to think where this all falls into place with those books time line. Just thinking to myself…did I miss something. So here I am… searching all those books to see how this plays into the time line of the Wind Dragons.

Ughhh… I spent way too much time doing research on these characters. This most definitely was not a good crossover. So Demon and Valentina are in Dirty Ride 3.5 of the Wind Dragons MC books…. It’s a novella. But, that novella is all about Valentina and Irish (a member in the MC club.). You get more of a clear picture of Darren in that book. How he really was. So I would say…. you need to read that book first then read this book to get a full picture. But beware… the time line just doesn’t add up or Scarlett’s character either. Considering how many years both these women have been with Darren and all the things they had done together and what he’s put them through.
And they pop up again in Rake’s Redemption book 4, Wild Ride, Wolf’s Mate, Last Ride & Crossroads in the Wind Dragons MC series.

As you can tell…this was pretty big for me. Yes I loved the Wind Dragons series. But, it just didn’t feel right in this book. Those characters played a big role in this book!

Ok… so going back and doing my research Valentina had been with Darren for 10 years. He was her 1st boyfriend and 1st love. There’s was never any mention of Scarlett. Or that he was even married at all. Because in that book Darren was going crazy about Valentina. And in this book. Darren was mistreated Scarlett.. And they were married for 5 years.
Something just doesn’t add up.. Scarlett met Darren right when he graduated from the police academy and Valentina had been with him before he even went to the academy. The time lines on both stories just don’t add up!
I went back to double check the time line about what happens to Irish. Nope… I would have remembered about that. And it wasn’t in there.

So, I’m not sure exactly when this book takes place in the time line of the Wind Dragons. Because one BIG discrepancy in this book was when Tina (Valentina) found out what happened to Darren.
I’m kind of aggravated about this.
How entwined this book is with the MC series. All the way down to the bar the MC members go to Knox’s Tavern & the strip club Toxic they go to too!
I honestly am kinda surprised by all this.

Also… it doesn’t help that of course Faye is in this book. She’s been getting to me in the last couple books of the Wind Dragons series. Seeing her pop up in this book is kind of irritating.

It was hard for me to fully embrace this story with all these unbelievable things going on between Scarlett and Valentina and the stripper club and just everything else.
I mean at the 90% mark and on I felt like I was reading a Wind Dragon book! And not a new lawyer book like the first one!
How this book played out just overshadowed everything between Scarlett and Jaxon. And the sad and unexpected outcome of one of the characters in this book was a little shocking.
For me anyways.

But…. I’m really looking forward to Hunters story next!! I love his laid back attitude! And all the funny things he says! And I’m really looking forward to the other 2 book books coming out in this series. I just hope its not another MC takeover book.
