Review: Chase (Secret Confessions Backstage #1) by K.M. Golland
Secret Confessions: Backstage - Chase - K.M. Golland

WTAF did I read?

 

Not just NOPE.

 

Not just Aw Hell No.

 

But a FUCKING HELL NO.

 

This is a 38 page short story about Chase, a fan of the band The Screaming Tuesdays, and Jess, also a fan who meet at a concert. During said concert, they are SOOOOOO overcome with hormones that they have a sweaty sex session in the stairwell in the arena. Then they use the restrooms to freshen up, finish watching (or semi-watching) the concert while they declare their everlasting to each other. After knowing each other with their clothes on for about 90 minutes and in the Biblical sense for about another 20.

 

For two American characters, there was a whole lot of Australian and UK slang and word usage. Also both Chase and Jess are very shallow people and I do think they deserve each other so that they can't screw up anyone else's life. More importantly, the story did not meet the requirements for the bingo square I had planned on using it for, so now I have to read the second book in the series.

Confessions
Confessions - Kanae Minato,Stephen Snyder

Yuko resigns from her job as a teacher after har daughter has supposedly died from an accident. During her last lecture, she confronts her pupils with the truth. It wasn´t an accident and two of the pupils in her class are responsible for the death of her little girl.

 

This is only the beginning of the novel and a dark and twisted revenge story unfolds. Each chapter is told from a different persons perspective and every time I thought I knew where the story was heading, it took a completely different direction.

 

I enjoyed the feeling of strangeness and alienation throughout the novel. The culture and the people are completely different to my own European upbringing and the way Kanae Minato describes the characters is creepy and eery, yet she manages to make her characters human in a disturbing way. I constantly asked myself who is telling the truth and which character is the most responsible one for all that has happened.

 

It´s a rather unsettling read but a captivating one as well. I couldn´t put this book down once I have started it. And I have a soft spot for Japanese mystery and crime novels and the atmosphere that these books are able to create.

 

I´ve read this book for the Booklikes-opoly. It´s a mystery / thriller novel and it starts with a C.

Confessions is both a mystery and it starts with a C. So it fits perfectly the task.

The Confessions of Nat Turner - William Styron

We're all in this game together.

 

William Styron

 

Novelist William Styron (born June 11, 1925) was both admired and controversial. Black activists called for boycotts of The Confessions of Nat Turner, written from the POV of the leader of a slave revolt. The sexually explicit Sophie's Choice, which won the National Book Award, was often banned in schools.

Blog Tour: Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen with Excerpt and Giveaway

 

Today’s stop is for Cindi Madsen’s Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny. We will have info about the book and author, and a great excerpt from the book, plus a great giveaway. Make sure to check everything out and enter the giveaway.

Happy Reading :) 

 


 

 

 

Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I'm just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.

Confession #2: Ryder "Ox" Maddox's deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I'm powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.

Confession #3: I can't stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it'd be to cross lines with him.

Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.

Confession #5: If I'm not careful, I might relapse and fall for Ryder, and then I'll be totally pucked.

Every thought turned to how strong he was. How much I’d like to see all those muscles without a shirt in the way. Once he’d counted off twenty-five, he stood and, as if he’d been reading my mind, peeled off his shirt. I stared. Not subtly, either. Nope, totally unabashed, taking in every dip and groove of his sweat-glistened skin. “Since we’re playing dirty,” he said, shooting his wadded shirt over to his bag. He grabbed my hand. “Last machine. I’m not sure you can handle it, though.” “I’m not sure you can handle it.” As far as comebacks went, not my best, but I mentioned he was shirtless and crazy ripped, right? He sat down on the leg machine, the one where the seat reclined at a forty-five-degree angle, and then he lifted the weighted bar that rested at shin-height with his legs. He reached for my hand, and since I’d already talked trash, I took it, even though I was starting to think I wouldn’t be able to handle it. He pulled me toward him, and I had no choice but to run my shins into the weights or to straddle the machine. I chose straddling, but kept space between us like I had earlier. My heart hammered against my rib cage, beating in time with his leg lifts, the steady clink of the weights filling the air. Ryder’s eyes remained locked on mine, and energy crackled in the air between us. He sat up enough to run his hands up my thighs. A dart of heat shot through my core, and my breath lodged in my throat. Ryder’s fingertips skimmed the skin between my pants and shirt and desire danced across my nerve endings. Still our eyes remained fixed on each other, and I wasn’t sure I was taking in oxygen anymore. A distant part of me whispered that if I didn’t stop this…whatever we were doing, I’d be in trouble. But fighting my attraction to him was exhausting and the ache that’d formed between my thighs grew more persistent, drowning out silly things like common sense. I leaned over like I had before, my hands braced on either side of him. He lifted the weights again, and then he brushed his lips against mine. Just a quick slide of soft lips. My throat went completely dry. I pressed my palm flat against his stomach and slowly slid it up, feeling his firm chest and the hammering of his heart, which echoed mine. Ryder gripped my hips and pulled me down to sit on his lap, eradicating the space between us. He lifted the weights with his legs a few more times, each rep bumping me tighter to him. Friction was definitely happening, and with each lift, it became clearer and clearer how much it was affecting him as well. The tiniest whimper escaped my lips and he raised an eyebrow that added even more smugness to the curve of his tempting mouth. Two could play dirty. So I sank farther into his lap and he groaned. Of course, all it did was give me dirty thoughts and turn me on that much more. He lifted his legs two more times, the movement shaky. He slowly ran his fingertips up my arm, across my collarbone, up my neck, and then he reached back and tugged my hair free of its ponytail. He drove his hand into my hair, cupped the back of my head, and for one torturous moment, time stopped, both of us suspended right there on edge of crossing lines.
