Nothing can Ruin this romance + giveaway


I never miss a release from Clarissa Wild. I'm always so curious about what she's written :o)



Ruin

Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: September 20, 2016




Maybell Fairweather was the girl of my dreams.

Always smiling brightly, she kept going, despite the names her classmates called her behind her back.
She was full of curiosity and independence, the extent of which I could only be jealous of. Even though she had all odds stacked against her, she knew what she wanted from life and pursued it, no matter the cost.

She was completely my opposite in every way.
Perfect, even though she couldn’t see it.
Perfect … until me.

Because this is the story of how I ruined her.
 

Based on a true story.
 Standalone Romance. No cliffhanger.

MY OPINION

Ruin is a journey through a young woman's struggle in life and how she learns to defeat darkness, both physical and emotional. May's future as she had envisioned it is shattered , so the novel focuses on the painful recovery and all the lessons she learns until she takes control of her life again. 

I liked the mix of past and present. With a steadfast pace and a casual style, the novel recounts her suffering, all the daily battles to be free again to be herself. A reconstruction of herself, so to speak. It's very realistic as it reflects a real-life experience.

To lighten it up, there is a romance too. It's sweet as first love, but it also is the source of a plot twist that affects both characters intensely. I think this novel is an exercise of therapeutic nature that would help people who are struggling themselves with choices in life or a bad lot. Despite the fact that I usually enjoy this author's dark romances more, she has this ability to reinvent herself with every novel she writes, so I'm pretty happy that I could walk this part of her path along with her.

Excerpt

“I needed that …” she murmurs, closing her eyes again.

“I know you did.” I smile cheekily.

She lets out a long, drawn-out sigh. “Alex Wright … you seem to know everything.”

“No, I just know you,” I reply boldly.

“Really now?” She opens one eye.

“I know you better than you think,” I say.

Now, both her eyes are open but hidden underneath thick lashes and a curious frown. “Really? Then what am I thinking right now?” She smirks as her feet dangle below the bench, one swaying, the other unmoving, and there is only one thing I can think of.

A tiny leaf that’s fallen on top of her head makes my hand move closer to swipe it away, but I linger. My fingers gently trail along her soft dark blond hair, past her ears and down her cheeks, until they reach her chin. There, I subtly grasp her between my thumb and index finger and lean in, cocking my head. My eyes slowly close, the sound of her short breaths pulling me in.

Before I know it, my lips have locked with hers.

I don’t know why I’m kissing her.

Well, other than the fact that I’ve been madly in love with her all this time.

She was just perfect.

Perfect, just the way she is.

Her scrunched-up face and rosy lips … just had to be kissed.

So I did it.

I’m actually kissing Maybell Fairweather.

I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve only ever kissed one other girl, and that was in kindergarten. I have no f*cking clue, but I hope I’m doing it right. She isn’t stopping me or pushing me away, so that’s a good thing. Right?

But damn, she tastes so sweet, and her lips are so soft.

No wonder everyone likes to do this so much.

It feels like it lasts forever.

After a while, she needs to take a breath, and our lips unlock. Her eyes wide and her lips parted, still swollen, heavy, much like mine, and all I can think of is kissing her again.

Is it so wrong to want the thing I shouldn’t have?

She tucks a strand of her wild hair behind her ear, her cheeks turning red as a strawberry, but I like the color. I can’t stop looking at her, but it’s growing awfully silent too. She’s still so close to me; I can feel her warm breath tingle on my skin.

“This?” I murmur, as an answer to her question.

She bites her lip to stop herself from smiling. “I …”

Her smile only makes me feel more bold, so I place my hand on her cheek and pull her even closer. “I just want to make you happy.”

I lean in again and press another soft kiss on her lips, the touch exhilarating me. Goose bumps scatter across my skin as I taste her on my lips. My blood rushes through my body to the only spot it can go to, the sudden burst of greed filling me. My pants tighten as my dick flinches from her lips alone.

God, I need to stop. This isn’t right.

With all the willpower I can muster, I unlatch my lips from hers, her taste still lingering on my tongue. I can smell her perfume too, the scent rubbed off on my cheeks and neck, and it’s making me giddy. Horny.

F*ck.

I clear my throat as we both turn red as a beet.

“Well …” I get up from the bench and turn away for a second to cool down my manly parts. I even think of the delusional grandpa she has for a neighbor just so I can rid myself of this hard-on. Anything to make it go away quicker.

When I’ve cooled down, I turn to her and smile. She’s still looking at me. Her lips still parted, her face still in shock mode. I can only hope my guess was right, but I won’t ask. I’ll let her decide.

So I hold out my hand and say, “Let’s go back inside.”

For a second, she just stares at me, then my hand, and then me again.

Her hand slowly reaches for mine.

Our fingers entangle.

The tip of her lips points upward.

That’s when I know.

A Real Man wants to meet you


Lately, I've been reading a few novellas by JENNIKA SNOW, and I'm quite content. Three of them have been bundled into one piece, A REAL MAN, volume 1.



MY OPINION

Three stories to entice our guilty pleasures.

In Lumberjack, a night in the woods with an intimidating stranger has never felt more right.
He's starving for female touch, she's never known a man like him. Running from a storm, Vivian encounters  a mountain man in his cabin that will provide not only shelter but a carnal experience she'll never forget.

Actually, this hot fantasy is really great. City people tired of grey lives that find in each other what they're craving. With a dirty mouth and a longing for a woman to claim, Jake is wild in close encounters. I especially liked the transition from unstoppable lust to a bond that doesn't let go. The bonus epilogue is sweet and dirty, too.

Virgin is about exclusive love, about first and only love. And it's really cute. Two inseparable friends face the test of one of them moving far away. They can't stand the thought so they blurt out their real feelings. I loved this story because you can feel how desperate the characters are because they fear the separating. Graduating in a year means one year without each other. Yet they find a way to spend their lives together. All the words they exchange, all the heated scenes, all the actions he takes to fulfill his promise to her, are endearingly romantic and hotly possessive. Also, both characters belong to each other and they've never been with anyone else. Sweet!

In Baby Fever, there's a rough biker who can no longer ignore the woman of his dreams, so he forgets about how good she is and that she's his friend's sister, and sets about conquering her for his selfish motives. Dex is a man on a one-way mission, a tattooed gentleman, intent on making a baby with the woman he craves.

Intense.

Even though there's a lot of heat between dex and Eva, it's also very romantic in an alpha man kind of way. He wants to be worthy of a life with her, so he's respectful, faithful and proves to Eva how truly  devoted he is to her and her well-being. So, there is a good balance of warm promises of forever, proven in the epilogue, and dirty talk to back Dex's plans to make babies right away.

If you're in the mood for quick and hot with a side of smut romance with a bad boy, this can be your perfect choice.

All three novellas are hot and intense, and mean real love. This bundle is a treat because it also packs epilogues never before seen. Totally worth it for lovers of alpha-males totally devoted to their mates.

LUMBERJACK

I looked over at the ax he had on the wall. It was huge, the handle worn, but the blade freshly cleaned and sharpened. I imagined the kind

of power it must take to wield that thing day in and day out.

When I turned my head to face him again, I was surprised to see he was leaning forward, his focus on me. He was braced on the edge of

the chair, his glass now on the coffee table, and his forearms resting on his thighs. He kept his focus right on my eyes, and I felt my heart

jump into my throat.

“How about we cut the shit, Vivian?”

The way he spoke, the words he said, were heated, aroused.

I clenched my fingers tighter around my glass.

Was the room getting hotter, or was it just me?

“What?” I said softly. “What are you talking about?” God, even hearing myself, I sounded like I was full of shit.

He lifted his eyebrow at my question, but didn’t respond right away. After another moment of silence, he finally spoke again. “You want to

act like you’re not aroused right now, that you don’t feel this crazy as f*ck chemistry?”


I swallowed, not saying anything, but knowing my answer was probably written all over my face.

“You want to pretend like you’re not eyeing every part of my body, maybe wondering how big my c*ck is?”

Oh. God.

“Because I sure as f*ck have been eyeing you, wondering if your p*ssy hair matches what’s on your head.”

The deep sound of his voice had my inner muscles clenching even tighter in desire.

His eyes were half lidded as he stared at me. “Because I’ll tell you one thing.” A moment passed before he continued. “Red is my favorite f*cking color.”


VIRGIN


“Have you ever really thought that out of the entire world, the universe, the great blankness above us, that we are just these little specks of cells and energy?”

I heard what she said, but I was too focused on her, at the way she looked staring up at the sky, at the vulnerability and sadness I saw on her face.

“It’s only a year of school before we can be together again, but it feels like someone is ripping out my heart, Quinn.” She looked at me then, that vulnerability so raw, so real, that I felt it in every cell in my body. “I know to outsiders looking in I’m being dramatic, but I can’t help it. I love—”

“I love you, Isabel,” I said, cutting her off, not about to hold this in anymore. She didn’t move, didn’t even show emotion for long moments. “I am so f*cking in love with you, and have been before I even know what that emotion was.” I cupped her face again and leaned down so we were eye to eye. “Ever since I met you when we were ten, I felt something in me start to grow. As the years went on, that affection grew to what I feel now.”

I heard her gasp a little, just a tiny sound that left her lips parted, but I wasn’t going to stop. I couldn’t. Now that the words were out, hanging between us, I wanted to lay it all bare.

“I didn’t want to say anything before because I was afraid of ruining the friendship we have. Having you in my life, even if only as a friend, is what I’ll take, because the alternative isn’t an option for me, Isabel.”


BABY FEVER

I slipped my hand along her side. Being a bold motherf*cker, I placed my palm right between her legs. The skirt she wore gave way, and I growled low at the fact her panties were damp. “I want to own this sweet p*ssy, Eva.”

She made the sweetest little mewling noise.

I nipped at her earlobe, and she dug her nails harder into my flesh. I added just a bit of pressure, but before I snapped at the pleasure I felt and took her right here, I moved my hand back up and placed my open palm right over her belly. My fingers spanned the width, and I leaned back to look in her eyes. “And every single time I take you, claim you as mine, Eva, I’ll make sure to fill you up with my cum until you carry my baby.”

She gasped.

“I don’t want any other woman, don’t want any other female to carry my baby.” She didn’t speak, but she sucked in a breath. “I want to f*ck you with nothing between us. I want to be so far in you, so damn deep, that when I fill you up my seed comes out of you days later.”

“Oh. God. Dex.”

“I want my baby growing right here.” I added a little pressure to her belly and watched her chest rise and fall rapidly. “Do you understand exactly what I’m saying?”

She licked her lips and nodded slowly.

“What do you think about that? How does that make you feel?”


“I want my baby growing right here.” I added a little pressure to her belly and watched her chest rise and fall rapidly. “Do you understand exactly what I’m saying?”

She licked her lips and nodded slowly.

“What do you think about that? How does that make you feel?”

She just shook her head, her whole body tight, her pupils still dilated, indicating how aroused she was.

“It scares me.”

“But in a good way, doesn’t it?”

She closed her eyes and exhaled. “God. Yes.”

I grinned even though she couldn’t see me.

Yeah, she was right here with me.

Levi’s Blue

Four beautiful days. Three steamy nights. One breathtaking love.

Levi Michelson. He wanted four dates. Four opportunities to prove I could trust him. Four chances to change my mind about him.

I agreed.

Probably not my smartest decision. He was everything I knew to avoid—gorgeous, charming, sexy as hell—but I couldn’t help myself. When he touched me the whole world disappeared. I should’ve known I could lose myself to him, that he could be the one man to destroy me.

I guess it’s true what they say—some things are too good to be true. And Levi Michaelson might just be one of them.

MY OPINION

 What a comeback! This novel makes a difference.


Evie is a remarkable woman. She's suffered an enormous setback in life and she's faced it with a creative and loving spirit. As fate will have it, she opens Levi's eyes and heart.

Intensely powerful chemistry, witty dialogues that are fun and riveting and playful, a mission to prove a man's worth, meaningful all the way.

The author has devised a unique angle to create this couple. Their kind of relationship is unlike anything I've ever seen.

The writing is poetic, sensorial and aphrodisiac.

Evie is limited in some ways. When she succumbed to those limits, my heart went out to her. Yet when she broke through them, it was eye-opening. What Levi and Evie share in talks, experiences and feelings is beautiful and awe-inspiring. I wish I could mention what it is that makes their interactions so special but there are two important things that would spoil it for the reader if I disclosed them. Believe me, they are everything.

I fell in love along with them. So naturally I came apart when the tragedy lurking in the recesses of their bond exploded like a supernova, burning everything to ashes.

Levi's Blue (even the title treasures so much meaning) is a tale of guilt, of redemption and healing, of trust and sacrifice and courage and the colours of life. It's pulsing with profound, hurtful, ecstatic feelings.

It is one of the most beautiful romances I've ever read. If I could complain about any tiny part is the excessive use of cursive, the rest is perfection.
