Numbers.
They complete me.
Nothing makes sense without them, the building blocks of logic.
A math teacher by day, a statistics doctorate student at night, my obsession to solve problems is constantly fed.
I’m exactly where I want to be in life, no unknown variables or unsolved formulas.
Until I meet her.
Lyra.
The woman beyond the numbers.
How can I stay away, when everything about her draws me in?
But how can I fall in love, when she won’t promise me eternity?

 


“Annie, wait,” I blurt, holding my hand up in the air. “We haven’t had a minute alone since I got home. I told you I needed to talk to you tonight.”
She ignores my protests and buries her face into my lower abdomen, trailing her freshly glossed lips down the thin line of hair that travels from my belly button and disappears beneath the flannel cotton of my pajama pants. “We have the rest of our lives to talk. I haven’t had you inside me in way too long, and I’m not waiting any longer.” Her teeth clasp around the waistband and she drags the pants down far enough to reveal my goods. She frowns at the sight of my flaccid, clearly unaroused shaft, and then glances up at me, her brow wrinkled with confusion. “You didn’t miss your fiancée?”
The way she says that word—the same way she’s said it all evening long, at every chance she could get—grates on my nerves for a reason I’m not even sure of. She hasn’t done anything wrong exactly, but she expects me to be the same man I was when I left here a couple of weeks ago—the man who was comfortable and content in his life and relationship, happy even.
I’m no longer that man. Not even close.
Meeting Lyra changed everything; my life’s formula completely flipped around. She’s the answer I didn’t know I was searching for. And now I’ve come home to a huge mess. But I couldn’t bear to devastate my mom. Not again.
And as far as Annie… I am enough of a gentleman not to embarrass her in front of all our friends, coworkers, and family members. I may have realized I don’t love her like I thought I did, and I know telling her that is going to cause enough pain; she surely doesn’t deserve to be humiliated on top of that.
“I did miss you,” I insist as I reach down and yank my pajamas back up over my hips, prompting the crease in her forehead to deepen, “but we need to talk. I have things I have to tell you about my trip.”
I pause to wet my cracking lips with a nervous swipe of my tongue. The movement draws her worried gaze away from mine and down to my mouth, and then she quickly crawls up the length of my body and kisses me. Her tongue plunges deep and determined, her chest pressed flush against mine. She smells like desperation and tastes like regret.
“Whatever happened while you were there,” she whispers against my lips in between kisses, “it’s okay. I understand. Just leave it there, in the past. We can focus on the future. With each other. Your wild oats have now been sown.”
Her mouth returns to mine as her hand wedges between our bodies and slips inside my waistband, fingers stroking my shaft feverishly, frantic for a reaction. My cock, the Judas bastard, responds despite my brain’s opposition. And that’s when I know what I have to do.

Liz’s Review~Etern1ty~ by Erin Noelle

4-5-stars-oitnb

“I’ve got a story to live. A man to love.”

description

Etern1ty is the second book in the Exp1re Duet. This duet must be read in order. As soon as I turned the last page of Exp1re, I couldn’t wait to start Etern1ty in order to find out what could possibly happen next. With a perfect blend of romance, passion, and mystery, Tavian and Lyra’s story continues.

description

“Call it fate, call it destiny, call it whatever you want. You’re mine and I’m yours for as long as we have left.”

Tavian West and Lyra Jennings met in the most unusual circumstances. After surviving catastrophe only to experience joy together, Tavian and Lyra return home to their former lives. Unable to quench the desire they have to be together, both decide to move forward together. Although it may seem they are on the cusp of their happy ever after, Tavian and Lyra have many obstacles to overcome before they can be together. The mystery that was revealed at the end of Exp1re continues to haunt them both. As Tavian comforts and heals Lyra, they both find joy, passion, and unbelievable love in the arms of each other.

description

“I want to celebrate my last day of work by wearing your ass as a party hat and drinking your Kool-Aid straight from that sweet pussy.”

Told in dual POV, Etern1ty is a perfect conclusion to this duet. With the many struggles both of these individuals have been forced to endure, the happiness they find in each other will leave you utterly breathless. The plot is laced with mystery as the truth is slowly revealed. This duet ushers in an onslaught of thoughts about life and love and the moments we are meant to cherish. I couldn’t help but think about how we should live every moment as it might be our last. I found the connection between Lyra and Tavian to be one of beauty. The way in which they cared for one another was undeniably epic. The tempo of the read flows naturally as the text is colored with beautiful dialogue and moment after moment of perfection. The passion is off the charts as Lyra and Tavian commit to one another and commit to living every second like it is their first.

description

Overall, I highly recommend this read to any contemporary romance fans. Although there is a slight Sci-Fi overtone, it only enhances the love story between the two main characters. The plot is unique, the characters are complex, and their love story is one that I will never forget. Erin Noelle has created a truly remarkable masterpiece and I am now officially hooked. I look forward to reading more from this author very soon!

Liz’s Review~Exp1re~ by Erin Noelle

“Anytime, anywhere. I’m all yours.”

description

Exp1re is the first book in the Exp1re Duet. Offering a unique plot, complex characters, and passion, this contemporary/sci-fi hybrid is one that will certainly peak your interest and keep you guessing the entire read.

description

“Unfortunately, time isn’t on our side.”

Lyra Jennings is a loner who has found success as a photographer. Using her camera as a shield, she has found a way to cope with the losses she has experienced in her life. In addition to experiencing great loss, Lyra has been given a gift. This gift is quite unique and Lyra views it as a curse. On a trip to Europe for work, she is thrown into a unique situation and finds herself in the arms of Tavian West. Despite the circumstances that brought them together, Tavian and Lyra embark on a journey where they experience living life to its fullest. Tavian teaches Lyra about living and letting go. They form a unique connection that only grows stronger with every passing moment. When the two are forced to return to the states and their respective lives, only time will tell if they are meant to find a way to be together.

description

“His arms provide a refuge I never knew could exist for someone as messed up as me.”

Told in dual POV, Exp1re is a tender romance full of intrigue. Both Tavian and Lyra have experienced great loss and their connection brings healing and revelation to them both. Tavian is quite the hero and the way in which he cared for Lyra left me swooning with every turn of the page. Lyra has much growing to do and her transformation is quite remarkable as the plot progresses. I found the picturesque setting was created with such commitment that it existed as its own main character. The story ends with a bit of a cliffy and the surprise that is revealed is certainly one that left me scrambling to start the next book. (In fact, I will be venturing in as soon as I hit post on this review!)

description

Overall, Exp1re is an absolute must read for contemporary romance readers who enjoy a tender romance with a hint of intrigue in their read. Although I don’t consider this book to be paranormal, certain elements grace the edge of the sci-fi genre. This is my first Erin Noelle read and I could not be more excited about discovering a new author to explore. Now on to Etern1ty as I cannot wait to find out what is going to happen next.

Liz’s Review~Judging Books~by Shay Savage

iconiconiconicon

 

 

 

“I was going to have to tell everyone about my new boyfriend.”

description

Judging Books is NA stand-alone romance by one of my favorite authors Shay Savage. Ms. Savage never fails to amaze me with her unique writing style, complex plots, and broken characters. In Judging Books she delivers a beautiful forbidden romance with a clear message about how not to judge a book by its cover and instead use your heart to search a person’s soul.

description

“Carpe diem.”

Ashlyn is a privileged young woman who is weeks away from graduating with her master’s degree. After her graduation, she will be taking a job at her father’s company where she is being groomed to take over the company. On her way to her final interview, she meets the most unlikely young man. Ethan is a tattooed, pierced, and lives life without any inhibitions. When he meets Ashlyn he is overcome by her beauty and sees something special in her. Although the two are complete opposites, they find a unique and tender connection. As a fast friendship is formed, a physical attraction blooms and the two share a passionate night together. But when the reality of what a relationship with Ethan would mean for Ashlyn, the pressures of social rules and expectations become too much for her to bear. Ashlyn and Ethan might be perfect for one another and yet, it will take courage for both to find the strength to be together.

description

“You want it slow, sweetheart or do you want it rough?”

Judging Books is a touching romance between two very different individuals. Ethan has learned to overcome his circumstances and thrives by living in the moment. The dynamics between Ethan and Ashlyn are explored thoroughly as we witness the internal struggle Ashlyn is facing. I felt compassion for both of them and yet, there were moments during the read that I wanted to throw my kindle against the wall due to the choices Ashlyn made. The stakes are high for them both to forget about society rules and expectations and instead embrace happiness together. In the end, her transformation is flawless as she finds happiness in Ethan’s arms.

description

Overall, Judging Books will appeal to readers who enjoy a tender romance of “opposites attract” with passion and smoking hot steam. Shay Savage is a fantastic storyteller and she always delivers!

Years later, Rhys and Liliana meet again in a cabin for the holidays. Her mom is dating his dad. The reunion between the two is smoking hot as the chemistry they shared still lingers and now has the chance to blossom and a new connection is formed.

Two years pass and Lily is doing her best to move on but when Rhys appears in her life again this time, he isn’t giving her up without a fight.

Told in dual POV, Indecent Holiday offers a complex plot with a tender second chance romance full of passion and heart. I adored the connection between Rhys and Lily and when their passion ignites it is smoking hot! With Elizabeth Brown’s fluid writing style and broken characters, Indecent Holiday is an absolute must read this holiday season.

Liz’s Review~Millions~by Pepper Winters

4-5-stars

“Nothing between us. Nothing stopping us.”

description

Millions is the fifth and final book in the Dollar Series. The Dollar Series offers a perfect blend of passion, tender romance, action, and intrigue.

description

“It’s about both of us.”

At the conclusion of Thousands, we were left with quite a cliffy. Pim and Elder’s fate is unknown and life and death are on the line. With some unexpected characters and unimaginable circumstances, it seems as though all would be lost for Pim and her Elder. But they are miraculously reunited and after everything they have been through, the intensity of the plot continues to increase. Pim and Elder must find the strength to overcome. As the demons of their past still haunt them, Elder must battle his nemesis the Chinmoku in order to seek healing and peace. As Elder faces the battle of his life, Pim stands beside him and together they find ultimate surrender in love.

description

“You did more than love me. You saved me.”

Told in dual POV, Millions offers a tender end to this epic series. The story arc has finally come to full circle and Pim and Elder find peace like they have never known. The action in this read is intense and the love that is shared is raw and beautiful. Every bit of brokenness that was endured becomes whole and a deep (and complex) love is forged.

description

Overall, fans of The Dollar Series will be thrilled to experience the joy that Pim and Elder find in this final installment. The brutality and violent circumstances felt at the beginning of the series are transformed to beauty. Pim and Elder share an unforgettable journey and their love story is truly epic. I have always enjoyed Pepper Winters work and The Dollar Series is one that I will never forget!

Liz’s Review~Van~by Sawyer Bennett

four_half-stars_0-1024x238

“I’m tired of your games little girl.”

description

Van is the ninth book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series however it can certainly be read as a stand-alone. This is my first read by Sawyer Bennett and I can say with complete certainty I am hooked! What can be better than hockey, romance, and smoking hot steam? NOTHING!

description

“I’m going to own your cunt. I won’t fucking stop until that pussy squeezes every drop out of me.”

Van Turner is an enforcer on the Cold Fury Team. He has prided himself on living a private life. He is quite the ladies man and yet, he has never allowed himself to bond with anyone beyond a physical connection. When Simone Fournier crashes into Van’s life, he is unwilling to give her the time of day. Simone is ruthless in her quest to win Van over. Simone’s spunky attitude and persistence break through and eventually Van succumbs to his attraction to her. As Simone and Van connect both physically and emotionally, the truth of Van’s past is revealed. As the demons from his past begin to threaten their future, Simone will do whatever it takes to give security and support like he has never experienced before.

description

“He’s such a scary mother fucker but damn if he isn’t a lamb with you.”

Told in dual POV, Van is a sexy read with strong characters and an intriguing plot. Simone is such a strong heroine and her pursuit of Van was hilariously entertaining. Van is a typical broody male and yet, his history was quite complex and as the plot unfolds, I fell more in love with him and only wanted him to find happiness. He and Simone are a perfect match. The supporting characters enhance the plot greatly as the team is in the playoffs! I am thrilled to have discovered a new series to explore!

description

Overall, I highly recommend this read to anyone who enjoys an entertaining hockey romance full of passion and a lot of heart. This was my first Sawyer Bennett read and I can say with complete certainty it will not be my last. Lucky for me I have eight more books from this series to explore!
