About CONQUERING


Wes ‘Stiff’ Collins lived life on the wild side. He worked from the moment he knew what the word meant, always making the best of every situation. There was nothing about his past he would change.

Without a real family except his brother Xander, Stiff joined the Vipers Creed Motorcycle Club, and they taught him what it was to have people he could depend on. When his past crashed into his present, he vowed to protect the club that had always been his steady, even if it meant turning his back on the woman who had given him life.

Chelsea Miller’s life was simple: work, take care of her family, and save for the future. Everything was about having a goal and a plan. However, when her sister ended up battered and bruised on a diner floor, everything she thought was in her past suddenly threatened her future. In a moment, she had a new goal, everything else be damned. She would protect her family … at all costs.

Stiff and Chelsea’s worlds collide in an explosion of determination, strength, and lust. Will they give in to temptation, or will conquering each other be too steep a price? Two people not afraid to put in the work will either overcome everything in their paths or finally crumble under life’s troubles they can’t escape, all in the name of family.

RELEASE DAY - Ink Enduring

The Montgomery Ink Series continues with INK ENDURING by Carrie Ann Ryan, available now! Three lives. Two Second Chances. One Redemption.

  ie-cover
ABOUT INK ENDURING
The Montgomery Ink series continues with a forbidden love between three friends and a past that they can’t escape.

Jake Gallagher knew from the moment he saw Maya that she was the one for him—it had the same breath-taking intensity as when he’d first set eyes on Border. Only life never turns out the way one plans, and now he’s falling for someone else...or at least he thinks he is.

Maya Montgomery never should have looked past the friendship she already had. Now that she has, she can’t stop thinking about Jake and what he means to her. When a mysterious stranger from Jake’s past shows up at their door, she’s forced to admit that if she doesn’t take the risk of a lifetime, she’ll regret it for the rest of her days.

Border Gentry walked away without a second glance once because of what could happen if he let go, but now he’s back and ready to see what he’s missed. He’s been on the road a long time and has seen things no man should ever see, yet once he rediscovers the broody Jake and meets the inked and fierce Maya, they’re like a balm to his soul and he realizes what path his future should take.

It will take more than sizzling chemistry and a heat that never dies for the three of them to overcome their pasts. And when someone from the outside wants to stand in their way, it’s not only their hearts on the line…but also their lives.

About Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born. Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.

REVIEW -- Secret Sunshine

Secret Sunshine
A Taboo Short

SYNOPSIS
So forbidden, so bad, and if I did anything, if anything happened — she'd want to kill us.
My feelings about Mr. Callahan confused and excited me. I didn’t expect to see him again. Now, he was close enough to touch.
He was a buff billionaire who married the one person I shouldn’t ever compete with for a man. He was off-limits. And I was 19, still holding my V-card.

Maybe if I wasn’t so mad at Jenny, and he wasn’t so muscular and appreciative — and if he didn’t flirt with me — I could stop thinking such nasty thoughts about him.

But from the first time our bodies touched, I started to burn.

Please Note: This standalone short story is erotica, not romance. To be clear, this is a dirty book. Secret Sunshine — A Taboo Short is rated Mature 18+ for sexual content, language and adult themes. All characters are unrelated consenting adults. Contents may be triggering for some readers.
A bit cliche... teenager holding on to her virginity gives it to her ex-stepfather, then agrees to be with him. You kind of knew where this was going when oh-so-conveniently her ex-stepfather just happened to be living next door to the BFF.

The sex scenes were hot, but that's the only saving grace of this book.

What ticked me off the most is that 42% of this book is excerpts and previews for other books! Was it really necessary to have that much of the book be filler?

Overall, it was a good book, just disappointed with how short it was.

This is available from Amazon for $2.99.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Good book, even if it was a bit cliche.
STARS: 4/5
WOULD RECOMMEND: Probably.
