JUNE EMBRACE RELEASE WEEK

The possibilities are endless...

 

Embrace has two new releases to share with you this week, so get those clicking fingers ready because you are going to want to meet these remarkable characters!
 
 
 
 
About the Book:
 
She’s so young, so full of life…
 
I couldn’t let her die…


Even if she made the world’s worst coffee.


Emily Garrett never asked to be rescued, let alone by a walking JCrew ad whose idea of fun is probably managing his stock portfolio and watching the nightly news. Then again, she never thought she would wind upside-down in a ditch after a night having a little too much fun.


Reece Montgomery never planned on being anyone’s hero, especially the foul-mouthed, bleach-blonde barista from the local coffee shop. He thinks there’s more to Emily than her tattoos, and lip ring, but getting close means letting her into his past and meeting his ghosts.

And he’s not sure she’s ready for that battlefield.

About the Author:

 

At seventeen Cole found herself homeless with only a beat-up Volkswagen Jetta and a bag of Goodwill clothing to her name. The only things that got her through the nights she spent parked in truck stops and cornfields were the stacks of books she checked out from the library along with her trusty flashlight. Because of the reprieve these books gave her from her troubles, Cole vowed to become a writer so she could provide the same escape to readers who needed a break the reality of their own lives.

About the book:

Three terrifying months.
 
That’s how long Kitty Laughton has been at the mercy of the scientist who experimented on her town, killing over a dozen people and giving the rest of them unique powers. But Kitty doesn’t feel powerful, especially when she learns the crazy man plans to test his research on more unsuspecting people. She refuses to let anyone else die, but trapped with no one to help her she’s out of options…that is until sexy and exasperating Nick Degrassi arrives.

Special-ops soldier Nick blames himself for Kitty’s capture, and he’ll do whatever he can to free the quiet beauty, but close quarters and a shared secret bring an attraction that neither of them expected. With the organization that started it all making mercenaries for hire, Nick and Kitty must save themselves and stop a madman…before it’s too late.

Excerpt:

 

As they loaded into the chopper, Nick’s eyes held hers, intense amidst the activity around them. His message was obviously for her. Texted Blue and Seth, too. They’ll come for us. He kept repeating the words, as if he wasn’t sure she was listening. Or as if he was trying to reassure himself.

 

She shook her head at him and looked away.

 

They hadn’t come before, and they wouldn’t come now. But she wasn’t going to ruin this for him. It had been bad enough when her own hopes died. She’d let him hold on to his for awhile longer.

 

If they were going to escape, they’d need to find their own way out.

 

When they landed back at the complex, Dr. Fields and his orderly greeted them on the tarmac. As the changed soldiers ushered her and Nick off the helicopter, holding their hands behind their backs, they stopped in front of Fields.

 

“Kitty, Kitty.” Dr. Fields shook his head, as if he was disappointed in her. “You should know better.” Then he waved a hand at the orderly next to them. Without a word, the man lifted his gun and shot both her and Nick, in quick succession.

 

As the tranquilizer took effect, she tried to catch one last glimpse of the sky. The sun was coming up, and it had been months since she’d seen it. But her eyes closed of their own volition, leaving her again in the darkness.

Good Story and Characters
Altered - Marnee Blake

Blue was a bartender that worked six days a week to try to keep ahead of the bills fro her grandmother’s meds and Doctor bill. Blue’s mom had completely fallen apart when her husband died and Blue’s grandmother took her in and gave her unconditional love and she was all Blue had. Seth was in the army and was to got to Special forces Training in five days with Nick. Seth had gotten tired on the road and turned his bike around to go to a B&B in a town called glory.Glory had a total of twenty three inhabitants. . When both blue and Nick awaken each in different places all they found was dead people including Blue’s grandmother and the rest of the town. Blue’s grandmother and her friends seemed to be all gone. But they found a few survivors like themselves and all who did survive now had super powers of some sort. But there is a government agency out to get the survivors and capture them. Jack, Kitty and Luke team up with Blue and Seth and to try to find answers. Seth wants to keep everyone safe. Seth and Blue are very attracted to each other . Seth’s powers are super speed and strength, Blue’s is telekinesis. Kitty can read minds. But the side effects from these powers were headaches and nosebleeds.

I liked this story a lot it also has a very good plot. The story was full of action and fast paced. But in this case it really had to be. I felt as though i was right there with Seth and Blue and the other characters- good writing. I got  totally  into the story then BAM a cliffhanger which I hate as everyone who reads these reviews by now knows. This case the cliffhanger made me really mad I was so enjoying the story. So this is why this story was rated a 4 instead of a 5. I did love the characters and all the twists and turns they go through especially Seth and Blue. I recommend.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
