REVIEW: PAN by Gina L. Maxwell

✨ 💚 ✨ PAN, a Neverland Novel is LIVE!!! ✨ 💚 ✨

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Gina L. Maxwell, comes a brand-new series with a fresh twist on an old classic.

Once upon a time, in Neverland, North Carolina–I fell in love.

I was twelve when Peter first climbed up to my balcony. Thirteen when I sneaked out to see him at the School for Lost Boys. Seventeen when his touch made me fly, And eighteen when his words made me cry.

We were magnetic, drawn to each other from that very first night, and what I thought would be forever. But when it came time for me to leave, he wouldn’t come with, so I left town with a map for my future and a shattered heart.

Ten years later, I’ve returned to Neverland, hoping to find a man in place of the boy.

Peter was partially right, growing up is no fun. After quitting my fancy career that sucked the magic out of life, I’m now organizing the fundraiser of the year. In a move that could make or break the event and my new company, I’ve hired Peter, master mechanic and owner of LB Automotive, to help me pull this off–trusting him to rebuild a classic car for the auction that could help hundreds of foster kids in need.

I thought I was prepared, but the boy who refused to leave is now a man hell-bent on getting me to stay, and as sparks fly between us, that undeniable fire flares back to life, deeper and hotter than ever.

But that ripped body doesn’t mean Peter’s matured enough to make us or this event work, and not everyone in Neverland is happy about my return.

Not every wound heals. Not every heart can be fixed. Not every boy grows up.

And after all this time, the love we found might be lost to us again…this time, forever.

*Pan is an adult contemporary romance retelling of Peter Pan, complete with Wendy, Hook, Tink, and all the Lost Boys. There are no fantasy elements in this world, other than the “magic” that happens between the sheets.

My Review

“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.” 

And, boy if people in today’s world could believe in this iconic phrase from the classic story, Peter Pan, and sprinkle some of the magic and innocence of Neverland into everyday life, imagine what contemporary society could be.

But while readers wait to infuse some of the magical properties of Peter and the Lost Boys’ favorite place into our daily lives, contemporary romance lovers can journey to Gina L. Maxwell’s Neverland, North Carolina, and experience a motley and boisterous crew of young boys who love to play pretend in order to escape their less than ideal circumstances and a family of grown ups who understands the importance of both work and play and vow to never take anything for granted because they’ve learned long ago that nothing is guaranteed.

Gina L. Maxwell seamlessly weaves the past and the present together in her quest to transition Peter and Wendy’s innocent love as teens to the all-consuming passion that they experience when Wendy returns to Neverland and to Peter, and while they both have changed in the time spent apart, their love for each other never has, but the fact that these two have always been from two very different worlds is still a point of contention, but the fact that Peter let Wendy go once has no bearings on the present, meaning he’ll do whatever it takes to prove the mischievous and free-spirited boy can also be a dependable and trustworthy adult just as long as Wendy stands by his side, becoming the real life versions of the make-believe roles they played all those years ago.

At Maxwell’s Peter Pan’s core is the adventurous and protective leader of the Lost Boys and because he embodies many of the same characteristics as his younger counterpart, it’s so easy to visualize this self-assured adult – one who looks to bring a bit of magic not only in his life but in all those who look to him for guidance.

As a young girl, Wendy was the sensible and innocent one who was looking for a bit of adventure, and as an adult, she still remains virtuous and a bit of a people pleasure, but it’s clear that she’s still searching for that magic that she only had when she was with Peter, so as she makes strides to branch out on her own, to step outside the box she was living in due to her father’s exceptions as well as her upbringing, what will solidify her latest decisions to do what makes her feel the most alive is the assurance that Peter truly has grown up while also reminding her that life will still always be an adventure.

All of the nuances involved in integrating references to the childhood version of Peter Pan are cleverly implemented, merging the two worlds together in a way that doesn’t downplay Peter and Wendy’s adult relationship but further reinforces why it’s always been Peter for Wendy and vice versa despite the decade that they spent apart.

I appreciated how Maxwell framed Hook and Peter’s ‘friendship’ and how they have an understanding when it comes to one another, not only because Peter knows things that no one else does but also because they’re cut from the same cloth, so to speak. Peter’s perceptiveness is illustrated well, so it will be interesting to see what he does when it comes to Hook’s own story.

I absolutely adored Peter and Wendy’s story…but I have to admit…I’m DYING for Hook and John’s story because I know Maxwell is going to make them work for everything given Hook’s baggage and the ginormous chip on his shoulder, but I more than know that it will be worth it in the end.

REVIEW: We Shouldn’t by Vi Keeland

WeShouldnt_FullCover

Synopsis

Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.

I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected mer-ger.

While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.

She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.

Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.

Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window.

Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse.

Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.

You know the deal…your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity.

His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator.

Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Or so I thought.

Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition.

The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heat-ed stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d saw me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival.

There’s a fine line between love and hate—and we shouldn’t cross it.

We shouldn’t—but straddling that line could be so much fun.

My Review

One of the many aspects of Vi Keeland’s writing that I enjoy is her ability to craft multi-dimensional characters whose personalities continue to develop throughout the course of the story, shedding light on past memories that clearly define who they are in the present as well as getting inside the hero and the heroine’s head due to both of their perspectives being written.

There is a laundry list of activities and behaviors that Bennett Fox and Annalise O’Neil should not do because they’re competing for the same job now that their two companies merged, but as the saying goes ‘there’s a thin line between love and hate,’ and as much as Bennett and Annalise have quite the hot-and-cold relationship – one that stems, mostly, from Bennett’s arrogant and asshole exterior – they can’t deny their attraction or how much they enjoy sparring both in and out of the office, but what their personal connection will cost them in terms of their career remains up in the air until the very end of their story due to a number of variables both in and out of their control.

Annalise O’Neil is definitely one of my favorite Vi Keeland’s heroine. There’s a genuineness to her…a goodness that isn’t contrived, and while she had multiple opportunities to gain the advantage over Bennett and sabotage any chance he had to secure the position, she remained professional and dealt with an abundance of less than appropriate behaviors and antics from Bennett, but always seemed to give him another chance to prove the man he was beneath his harsh words and jerkish moments.

I do have to admit that it took me quite a while to warm up to Bennett; a man’s arrogance can absolutely be a positive characteristic, but in my opinion, he overused his confidence in order to remain the man who shuts down all of the emotions that he feels too weak to handle. But I held onto the idea that there’s always a reason behind someone’s actions…behind not wanting to give everything to a person after it was almost destroyed once before, and as the details of Bennett’s past are exposed, I started to understand why he fought so hard to keep being the single man he knows and finds easy to be, but he had to know that Annalise would change him…would challenge him…would work to help him heal in whatever way she could, which is exactly why what they share terrifies Bennett.

By the time I reached the end of We Shouldn’t, I had a smile of my face and a warm heart, but it did take me a bit to get there. Bennett proves himself in the end and that’s exactly what I needed him to do in order to remind myself that he had to let go of a large amount of negative emotions to allow the good ones to surround him and move forward.

REVIEW BLITZ: CRUEL MONEY by K.A. Linde

Lose yourself to the dark and glamorous underbelly of the Upper East Side in USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s new billionaire romance Cruel Trilogy.

She was supposed to be a one night stand.

A way to sate my sexual appetite.

I let her glimpse the man I am. The face that I hide behind my carefully cultivated life.

But she ripped open that divide–and there’s no going back.

Now, she’s here. In my city.

I don’t care that I’m Manhattan royalty and she’s the help.

Only that she’s living in my summer home. With me.

And I want more.

My Review

K.A. Linde goes back to her angsty writing roots with Cruel Money, book one of her new series, the Cruel Trilogy, and in doing so, she creates the perfect world, New York City & the Hamptons to explore and to expose the personal and professional boundaries that some people seem to not mind crossing while others strive to stay true to who they are and what they believe in no matter the cost.

When Cruel Money begins, it’s beyond clear that Natalie Bishop doesn’t belong with Penn Kensington’s crew, not because they’re too good for her or because she’s not anywhere near their financial wealth/stability; no, the reason she should want nothing to do with this Elite Squad of New York’s Upper East Siders is because she’s better than them not inferior…because what they show on the outside is nothing like what lies within and that idea does not describe Natalie or define the woman she is, which means she’s too good for their games, their bets, and their pettiness, no matter how much Penn makes her want to play.

Penn Kensington is definitely a larger-than-life man – one who is also a bit of an enigma given his family name, his need to pave his own way, and his position as an ethical professor. He’s someone who studies the ethics involved in any given situation, which I find quite ironic due to the situation he finds himself in when it comes to his second chance with Natalie, and while it’s clear that he struggles to right wrongs that could end up destroying the new connection that he’s made with her, the fact that he does nothing until it’s too late makes me wholeheartedly agree with Natalie’s assessment of Penn at the end of Cruel Money because no one who understands what it means to be an honorable man and human being should find pleasure in messing with other people’s lives simply because he can and he finds it too difficult not to prove his crew members wrong.

There’s one particular woman in Penn’s inner circle that I would be more than happy to bitchslap; she’s devious and duplicitous and she doesn’t care who gets hurt in the crosshairs of her deceptions; in fact, other people’s feelings, even those in her crew, she refuses to concern herself with, which I’m hoping, in the end, will lead to her downfall.

I’m not sure where Natalie and Penn go from here because it’s clear that regardless of how much time passes, how much heartache they incur, and how much space they put between them, their feelings for one another aren’t just going to dissipate, no matter how much one or the other might want them to, so heading into Cruel Fortune, I truly have no idea where K.A. Linde plans to take her characters…what I do know, though, is that I’m sure readers for in for quite the bumpy and angsty ride.

4 Poison Apples

K.A. Linde is the USA Today bestselling author of more than fifteen novels including the Avoiding series and the Record series. She has a Masters degree in political science from the University of Georgia, was the head campaign worker for the 2012 presidential campaign at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and served as the head coach of the Duke University dance team. She loves reading fantasy novels, geeking out over Star Wars, binge-watching Supernatural, and dancing in her spare time.

She currently lives in Lubbock, Texas, with her husband and two super adorable puppies.

DELIVER SERIES

Each book is a different couple. No cliffhangers. Must be read in order.

DELIVER (#1) – FREE
VANQUISH (#2)
DISCLAIM (#3)
DEVASTATE (#4)
TAKE (#5)


DELIVER, Book 1: FREE on all retailers

Deliver2500x1563

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it’s whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price.

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold.

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can’t deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.

VANQUISH, Book 2

Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.

DISCLAIM, Book 3

Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?

DEVASTATE, Book 4

“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“Money isn’t an issue.”
“I’m not talking about money.”

Tate is on the hunt to find his best friend’s sister.
Eleven years ago, Lucia Dias was abducted. Presumed dead. He never met her, so why does he care?
Some might call his efforts noble, but his motivation is more perverse, bordering on obsession.

When he follows a chilling lead to Venezuela’s Kidnap Alley, what he finds is neither a corpse nor a captive.

Amid poisonous lies and crippling depravity, the price of love is devastation.
And he pays.
With his body, his blood, and her life.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ AND EXCERPT: Darkness Embraced by Tillie Cole

“There was him, Tanner Ayers, the White Prince of the Ku Klux Klan. And me, Adelita Quintana, Princesa of the Quintana Cartel. I hated him. He hated me… things only got complicated when that hatred turned into more… when that hatred turned into love.”

Synopsis

THE DEEPEST LOVE CAN BE BORN FROM THE FIERCEST HATE…

Born to sit on opposing thrones.

They were never meant to fall.

Tanner Ayers is the heir of the Texas Ku Klux Klan. Fed nothing but hate, violence, and intolerance from the day he was born, Tanner kills for his cause without remorse.

Until he meets Adelita Quintana, the daughter of the most brutal cartel boss in Mexico.

Adelita and Tanner hate each other instantly. But there is something between them that neither can explain or deny. Hate turns to desire, desire turns to love, and for the first time Tanner sees how wrong his whole life has been.

For years, Tanner does everything he can to find a way for him and Adelita. He walks away from the Klan, his family, everything he ever believed, and joins the Hades Hangmen. But now the Hangmen are at war—not only with his own family, but with Adelita’s too.

When Adelita and Tanner are thrown together again, they are forced to fight for a love that should never have been. For a love that puts them and everyone they have ever loved in danger.

The White Prince.

The cartel princess.

Excerpt

When we pulled up to the small chapel, I let the driver open the door and escort me inside. Candles were still lit, illuminating the dark room. I reached out to the old stone walls and smiled. I always felt safer here. At peace.

Free.

I let the rows of candles lead me along the aisle and down the stairs until I reached the place I knew Luis would be. As always, he was hunched over his books. “Adelita?” I’d shocked him. He glanced at the clock on his wall. “You’re here late.”

I checked the driver had stayed by the main door. When I faced Luis, my only true friend left here in Mexico, from childhood, I let my eyes fill with water and held up my hand, showing the ring. Luis’s eyes fell in sympathy, and his face paled somewhat. “Adelita,” he whispered. I shook my head. Luis was the one person I could let my guard down with. The only one who truly knew the real me, and . . .

“Tanner,” I whispered, and my voice caught on a pained breath. “Luis . . . what about Tanner?”

Luis rushed over to me and took me in his arms. I cried into his shoulder, hearing him lock the door behind us. Luis let me cry until my legs felt weak and all the energy had drained from my body.

Luis and I sat on his small couch. He held my hand, just like he had done, years ago, when I’d fallen for the prince of the Ku Klux Klan . . . when Tanner had had to leave me . . . and in the months, then years, when I didn’t hear from him. When he didn’t return.

“Diego was always determined,” Luis eventually said. He sighed and faced me. I knew my face would look tired and worn. Luis squeezed my hand tighter.

“When?”

“Three weeks,” I said, my voice broken with sadness. I laughed without humor. “I’m sure you’ll be told come morning.”

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: PAN by Gina L. Maxwell

✨ 💚 ✨ PAN, a Neverland Novel is LIVE!!! ✨ 💚 ✨

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Gina L. Maxwell, comes a brand-new series with a fresh twist on an old classic.

Once upon a time, in Neverland, North Carolina–I fell in love.

I was twelve when Peter first climbed up to my balcony. Thirteen when I sneaked out to see him at the School for Lost Boys. Seventeen when his touch made me fly, And eighteen when his words made me cry.

We were magnetic, drawn to each other from that very first night, and what I thought would be forever. But when it came time for me to leave, he wouldn’t come with, so I left town with a map for my future and a shattered heart.

Ten years later, I’ve returned to Neverland, hoping to find a man in place of the boy.

Peter was partially right, growing up is no fun. After quitting my fancy career that sucked the magic out of life, I’m now organizing the fundraiser of the year. In a move that could make or break the event and my new company, I’ve hired Peter, master mechanic and owner of LB Automotive, to help me pull this off–trusting him to rebuild a classic car for the auction that could help hundreds of foster kids in need.

I thought I was prepared, but the boy who refused to leave is now a man hell-bent on getting me to stay, and as sparks fly between us, that undeniable fire flares back to life, deeper and hotter than ever.

But that ripped body doesn’t mean Peter’s matured enough to make us or this event work, and not everyone in Neverland is happy about my return.

Not every wound heals. Not every heart can be fixed. Not every boy grows up.

And after all this time, the love we found might be lost to us again…this time, forever.

*Pan is an adult contemporary romance retelling of Peter Pan, complete with Wendy, Hook, Tink, and all the Lost Boys. There are no fantasy elements in this world, other than the “magic” that happens between the sheets.

About Sarah Brianne

Hey! My name is Sarah Brianne and after living for twenty-two years the characters in my head told me enough was enough and I have finally put pen to paper (or is it finger to keyboard?) to tell their stories. Since I was a little girl I have watched every chick flick I could get my hands on, then when I became older I discovered a whole new world of romance novels. To me there is nothing better then a tale of true love and those are the stories that have inspired me to write. Like everything else in my life I have put my own spin on two lovers destined to be together.
