As a single father of two girls and the sergeant at arms for the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club, Jack “Knuckles” Chester doesn’t have much free time. And having earned his road name from his reputation as a fighter, Knuckles isn’t one to back away from a challenge.

Celina is nothing like the women Knuckles used to date. She’s a journalist for the local newspaper, dresses well, and basically just has her life together.

But when a scandal at her newspaper breaks the thin trust she has with Knuckles, will she walk away for good? Or will Knuckles fight to keep Celina in his life?

I am Comet Caldwell.

And I sort of, kind of, absolutely hate my name.

People expect extraordinary things from a girl named Comet. That she’ll be effortlessly cool and light up a room the way a comet blazes across the sky.

But from the shyness that makes her book-character friends more appealing than real people to the parents whose indifference hurts more than an open wound, Comet has never wanted to be the center of attention. She can’t wait to graduate from her high school in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the only place she ever feels truly herself is on her anonymous poetry blog. But surely that will change once she leaves to attend university somewhere far, far away.

When new student Tobias King blazes in from America and shakes up the school, Comet thinks she’s got the bad boy figured out. Until they’re thrown together for a class assignment and begin to form an unlikely connection. Everything shifts in Comet’s ordinary world. Tobias has a dark past and runs with a tough crowd—and none of them are happy about his interest in Comet.

Vincent: Forgetting about Eve was the plan. Finding her at a party on my college campus was the last thing I expected.

But letting her go again isn’t an option—not this time. Juggling the life I want with the one I was born into may be near impossible, but for her, it's a risk I'm willing to take.

My world has turned into a house of cards, where one wrong move can send it all crashing down…and us with it.

Eve: Finally at a prestigious university—and on the path to living my dreams—I’ve left the darkness of the Blue Houses behind. Still, a whole new host of problems await me.

Vincent is here.

He's king of the school, complete with a society princess by his side. I thought I wanted to know what he was hiding, but unlocking his biggest secret leads me into entirely new territory laced with danger
and lust...one I’m not sure I’ll survive.

RECKONING is book two of the Vincent and Eve Trilogy. You will need to read RISING, book one in the Vincent and Eve trilogy, in order to enjoy this sexy and heart pounding romance.

Also by this author: Rising (Vincent and Eve #1)

“I’d kill for you. To make you a part of me, I’d do anything. I’m a selfish man, Eve. I’ll never let you leave me.” 

This second instalment gave me all the feels,… and frustrated me to no end.

I love Vincent; he’s dark, dangerous and sexy as sin but the secrecy surrounding his true identity and his feelings for Eve were brutal. I hated his position – shackled to the sorority hell bitch princess in the name of family business was tough to witness for our Eve and my heart broke for her.

Starting college and escaping the blue projects is a dream come true for Eve. All her hard work is paying off but when she realises Vincent Borignone is in the same vicinity her new start and resting of past demons raises its head as she becomes more embroiled in the arms of a man she knows she should stay away from.

Love becomes obsession, as third parties threaten to destroy the beauty of what they have. Eve must fight for the man she loves, whilst Vincent makes a decision that could potentially destroy everything!

Set in College this story for me lost some of its edge. I liked the grittier form of book 1 but there is no denying this was still a great read that sprung one hell of a surprise at the end. I have no doubt that book 3 will be epic and I cannot bloody wait!!!

From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.

A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.A symphony of love.A symphony of them.

Standalone Mature YA/ New Adult Novel. Suitable for ages 15 and up.

Tillie Cole is a must read author for me, I love everything she does and the versatility in her craft is quite simply astounding, however, this book was on a whole new level.

A Wish For Us was an emotional and sensory overload treat. A story awash with colour and song, creating a deep and personal read with in-depth characterisation based on personal loss, guilt, love and everything inbetween. From start to finish, ‘A Wish For Us’ is the perfect literary symphony that melds to your book loving beating heart and refuses to let up until the final chord. Even an hour later, I can’t get Cromwell and Bonnie out of my mind. Their journey is, at times, beautiful… and arduous.

Love has the power to conquer all, but at a cost…one neither could ever have anticipated, which is what also made this book a tear-jerker of epic proportions.

A lost and heartbroken English boy finds acceptance and solace in the arms of a sweet American girl who shows him the real meaning of soul shattering acceptance, bringing colour, music and irrevocable love into his life, only for time to be working against them.

A Wish For Us is perfect in every way; beautifully written, emotionally charged with a deep poignancy as it focuses on some more serious subject matters offering impact and a sense of realism.

If you pick up any book this summer, ‘A Wish For Us’ is it!

Can be read as a stand-alone

When Quinn Montgomery leaves the horrors of her past behind her, she never expects to run straight into the arms of a blue-eyed cowboy. Sneaking into the stables and getting caught in a life-threatening fire was never part of the plan. And neither was falling in love with the man who saved her life, Brody Parker.

The two share an undeniable connection, and slowly Quinn begins to open up about her past. Putting her trust in the wrong person has burned her before, so when Brody asks her to stay at the ranch, she can't help but wonder if she’s about to make another bad decision by staying. A decision that could hurt everyone she’s come to care for.

Will Quinn choose to run from the past that threatens to catch up with her? Or will she stay and fight, sacrificing whatever it takes for the man who sets her heart on fire?

Book 3 in the Healing Hearts series. This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading them in the order they were written, because if you are like me, you will itching to read Brody’s story.

Having escaped the recent tragedy of her life, Quinn Montgomery arrives in Marble Falls ready for a new life and fresh start. When a local tips her off about a job, she decides to head that way not knowing the changes that lay ahead.

When Brody Parker saves a stranger from his families burning barn, he feels an intense connection with her. Brody isn’t known for forming any kind of connection, except in the bedroom, so the feelings that Quinn stirs in him are unexpected and new.

Two strangers drawn to each other, even though neither are looking for love. But sometimes love hits at the most unexpected time. The question is… do you fight for it? Or do you continuing running?

I have really looked forward to Brody’s book from the start of this series. There is always that one character the peaks your interest, and Brody was that character for me. Cocky, free-spirited, but a kind soul… I couldn’t wait to meet the girl that would capture his wandering heart, and Quinn didn’t disappoint. She had to be an out of towner, and she had to have that something in her that provoked a side to Brody that he didn’t know existed; and she certainly has all of that going on. But apart from all the drama that surrounds her, she is just so sweet. As much as she bowls Brody over, he does that right back to her. Don’t get me wrong… this isn’t an insta-love, but it is definitely insta-lust and attraction. They knock each other off their axes, and adding in the drama you have a very enjoyable read.

Well done Laura! These great books keep coming. I wonder where you will take us next, as this series looks to be at its natural conclusion. I will be looking forward to it though. Your writing continues to develop and each story has a new pace with some added spice. You manage to do this with a flow that keeps the storyline engaging and characters likeable.

Daisy.They say eyes are the windows to the soul. I thought that was bullshit until I saw hers. Huge doe eyes that should have sparkled with happiness and laughter were dead and lifeless. That was the moment that changed everything. Two random meetings, nine emails, four days and a broken Angel that changed my entire world.Angel.Such a silly name for a beautiful boy. Daisy is the saviour I crave and the safety I haven't felt in years. My world is spinning out of control but he's the salvation that can keep me alive -- if I'll let him. Two random meetings, nine emails, four days and a broken boy that brought me back to life.

4.5 Crowns

 Book 2 in the Archer’s Creek MC series. You don’t have to read Echo to enjoy Daisy, but if you want to get stuck into a book knowing the backdrop and some of the characters I highly recommend you do.

 Daisy has been a prospect in the Doomsday Sinners MC for the last 18 months. Loyal to his club and brothers, they are his family and he loves everything that they represent. Women come and go easy for Daisy, he is young, like’s variety and spreading the love… and then he meets an Angel.

 Angelique is the daughter of the Mayor of Archer’s Creek, and knows she must stay away the MC member that she recently crossed paths with. She has lived a sheltered life due to her father’s increasing control over her, but now 18, she hopes she will be able to escape her prison and go to college. But her father has other ideas and her plans may need to change.

 I really enjoyed this book. Having read Echo, I had already met Daisy. When I found out that his book would be next I was intrigued to see where Gemma would go with it. In the opposite direction is where. She has shook it up, changed pace and given us a very captivating storyline.

There is nothing that I love better than opposites attracting to make perfection. Daisy… That man. I knew very early in the book that he would hold my heart and I wasn’t wrong. He is your typical biker but Angel really brings something out of him and the gentleness he has for her made me swoon. As for Angel, well she surprised me. She had an inner strength that you slowly see kick in as the story progressed, and I believe that is not just due to Daisy, but also because of the MC brother’s unwavering loyalty to Daisy and the connection he has for Angel.

I can imagine that as much as a debut is nerve-wracking that the follow up must be even worse. Was the first book a fluke? Will everyone hate this one?  Well I can wholeheartedly say that no nerves are needed by Gemma Weir. I think this book proves that Gemma has genuine talent. The progression in her writing, depth of characterisation and tempo change shows that this author has a lot more in the tank, and I can’t wait to see where she takes us next.

If you are looking for a MC read that is about connection between 2 strangers that couldn’t be more different, Daisy is a MUST READ!
