BLURB:

They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

REVIEW:

This is the first book I’ve read by JL Shen, and it will not be the last. I enjoyed it! It was a bit long, but the story was good with great characters, good plot twists, a few curves thrown in for good measure.

Francesca is a naïve, young woman at 19, who thinks she’s in love with her long-time family friend Angelo, then she meets Wolfe at a masquerade ball where she plans to get her first real kiss from Angelo who she believes is her true love. But instead of Angelo kissing her its Wolfe and since Wolfe is a crass, mean unimpressed man who is a rich Senator on a mission of revenge.

The attraction between Francesca and Wolfe grows with every page into the book from hate to love and every emotion in between.

Get your copy from Kindle Unlimited like I did and enjoy several hours of good reading.

Looking forward to more books by JL Shen.

Thank you and Happy Reading!

BLURB

“It was easier to run away than watch another guy decide I’m too much trouble—too broken or too slow or too…me. I didn’t understand we couldn’t go back to being just friends. Or…that I didn’t want to. ”

Camilla Delgado. Computer genius. Former explosives ordinance expert. Wounded on the dusty roads of Afghanistan, she exchanged her dreams of adventure for a life behind a computer. Trapped by her cane—and her scars—Cam avoids the “real” world whenever she can.
Until her newest online gaming buddy asks her out for coffee.
West, a former Navy SEAL, looks more like a cover model for Men’s Health than a human being. And his slight drawl? Hotter than the espresso Cam spills down her shirt.
But Cam doesn’t do charming. And all of her instincts scream, “RUN!”
West doesn’t understand what he said—or did—to drive his sexy and smart gaming partner away. She set him ablaze, and nothing can put out these flames.
Unable to forget the man who saw her and not her scars, Cam lets West draw her out of her shell.
Now, she’s hot on the trail of a hacker threatening her career while navigating the minefield of falling in love.
When ghosts from West’s past and fears for the future threaten, will Cam find the courage to lower her defenses and let him in?
__
BREAKING HIS CODE is a standalone romantic suspense featuring the men and women of Emerald City Security and Hidden Agenda K&R. Meet these former military heroes and computer geniuses who’ll show you just how steamy and heart-wrenching love can be.
Can broken be beautiful?
Hell, yes.

REVIEW

A●R●C ~ I was given Second Sight: Away From Keyboard Book #4 by Patricia D. Eddy as an Advanced Readers Copy (A●R●C) from Give Me Book Promotions, this book releases on March 12, 2019, I voluntarily read and reviewed this book as it is book #1 in the series for the new release coming up.

I loved this first book in the series, Breaking His Code: Away From Keyboard Book #1. I liked that the leads both had to learn to trust in order to make a relationship work. Usually we read about how one person needs to work twice as hard as the other to make a relationship work but when they both need to work equally as hard it works for me.

For Cam trusting is something she doesn’t do with anyone, since her family kicked her out especially after she was blown up while in the military, everyone shares with her, but she shares with no one until Sampson West. Gamers make such strange bedfellows. Women game just as much as men, it’s just not something we see everyday and Cam AKA Camilla Delgado works had and plays hard. She also gives back to her fellow vets with chat rooms, forums, information, etc. I want to be like Cam when I grow up. She’s there for her fellow Vets with whatever information she a give them even if it’s just someone to talk to.
Both being Vets with PTSD is hard enough but add trust issues and it’s a rough relationship but love always finds a way.

One mistake.

They say you can’t be in love with two people at the same time, but that’s exactly what happened to me. I knew it would catch up with me one day but I didn’t expect that when I went down, I’d take Trent and Jensen along with me. Trent has always been the loving and dependable one—Jensen, unpredictable, cruel . . . and compelling.

When Trent was given orders to deploy to Afghanistan to test a highly classified and dangerous serum, I couldn’t shake the feeling that life was about to irrevocably change. Little did I know how much. My secret was just what an unknown enemy needed to destroy our lives.
And he did.

I made a mistake once, and now we’re all paying for it…

EXCERPT

We were nearly there when I noticed the Lt. Colonel staggering toward us from the elevator on the opposite side of the hallway. I thought fast on my feet and did the only thing I could do—and quite frankly the only thing I’d wanted to do since I saw Skyla in her hotel room. I grabbed her face and kissed her with such intensity it took my breath away.
Pulling her closer to me, I deepened the kiss; flicking my tongue over hers, a low groan escaped my lips. Up to this moment, I hadn’t realized just how much I’d missed her lips on mine, craved the taste of her. In that moment, I realized how it must feel for an addict when he gets his fix. Her hands curled into my hair and as I looked into her face, I was shocked at what I saw there. She wanted me, I could see it in her eyes, feel it in the hands that were roaming my back. She was so close to me that I could feel her heart racing beneath the thin material of her dress and frantic need overwhelmed me.
I ran my hands down her waist to her tight ass and pulled her hips flush with mine, my cock pressed against her stomach. When she closed her eyes and whimpered ever so softly, I started walking us toward Stephenson’s room. I would have her, I had to have her. A sound penetrated the haze of lust and without breaking the kiss, I flicked my eyes in the direction of the sound. The Lt. Colonel had just stumbled into his room and was closing the door. It was as though a bucket of ice was thrown over me.
What the hell was I doing? And what was she doing kissing me back that way? She was Trent’s.
My hands shot out to Skyla’s shoulders and I pushed her back. The surprise and hurt radiating from her face fueled my anger. I wanted to hurt her the way she hurt me—show her what it felt like to have her feelings disregarded.
“Easy there, tiger, I know Trent’s been away for a while and you are . . . frustrated . . . but I’m not into my brother’s sloppy seconds.” I watched the deep red flush creep up her neck and knew I’d gone too far, but I couldn’t stop myself. Forcing a chuckle from my throat, I walked away, leaving her gaping after me.
“What the hell, Jensen?” Skyla yelled, grabbing my shoulder and catching me off guard, so my back slammed into the wall. She jabbed her finger into my chest and all I could do was blink at her. “You kissed me, your hands were all over me!”
I pulled my lip into an arrogant sneer I didn’t feel. The same look I’d given her countless times to hide the pain. I leaned in, my lips brushing her ear. I felt her shiver and loaded my voice with contempt. “Don’t get your panties in a bunch. Stephenson was coming and I had to do something to save us from suspicion. We’re on an assignment, Sky. Not a real date. Don’t get pissy with me because you got carried away by a simple kiss.”
Her hand came around to slap me across the face but I saw it coming and grabbed her wrist. Squeezing hard, my eyes narrowed into thin slits as I looked down at her.
“Watch yourself, Skyla, we wouldn’t want Trent to pick on the underlying . . . tension between us now would we?” Seeing the look of panic on her face, I added bitterly, “Don’t worry, I won’t tell if you don’t. I mean, what’s one more secret between us, right?”
Turning on my heel, I left her there to glare after me and descended the stairwell to the ballroom. I fucking hated myself.

EXCERPT

“The dark night of the soul? Mind telling me what the hell that was about?” The heavy wooden door echoed through the tight chamber when it slammed against the door jamb.
Bastien remained still across the small sacristy, head bowed as he continued to work quietly, deft fingers sliding thin, golden ropes of sacred fabric through his fingers. “I’d rather know what you think.”
Frustration thickened my blood. “I’m your dark night of the soul?! I think you went a step too far.”
“If that’s what you call a step too far I’d hate to hear what you call indecent.” His body was against mine in an instant, my breasts heaving with shallow irritation and grazing the fabric of his vestments.
This profoundly infuriating man was under my skin like no one else had ever been, and just like a bad tattoo, I’d pay a professional to gouge him out of my soul if I could.
“This, for instance,” he hissed, “is surely a step too close to your precious comfort zone.” His body pressed closer, the deep ridge of his arousal cutting at my hip and causing my throat to crack and turn to dust. “Don’t trick yourself into believing that you know you more than I do, Tressa.”
His dark eyes glinted in the dim light, heartbeat vibrating in my ears the only noise in the room. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
I couldn’t catch my breath, his fingers crawling their way past my wrists, grazing the underside of my elbows before his thumbs dug in and he was as far deep inside my own heart as he could possibly go.
“You like the dance, sweet dove, but just when things get intimate you pull away.”
His scathing truth cut like a hot blade.
“No,” I squeaked.
His soft chuckle my only reply, my eyelids already glued shut in opposition of his words.
“You think you only show me the side of you you want me to see,” Bastien’s thumb danced the arch of my brow, “but I see so much more than that.” His eyes flicked down to my lips, hips working softly against mine.
“I’m trained to see the broken parts you’ve spent a lifetime hiding. I’m trained to be your light in the darkness, Tressa, but all that darkness,” his thumbs worked inside my elbows, swaying me against his body as he grit against my neck, “it weighs on me some days. Seminary doesn’t teach a flesh and blood man how to channel all that darkness into…” he flexed behind his robes, my body humming with pure desire for anything more he had to give, “productive activities.”
I didn’t have a reply for him, the way he swallowed my space and caused my heart to thrum like a hummingbird was distracting enough, but his skin setting flame to mine was beyond unbearable.
“What about you, then?” I summoned my earlier anger. “You fancy yourself some sort of holier than thou saint? Forgive me Father, but I call bullshit.”
Bastien’s eyes held mine, the amusement chasing through his chocolate irises giving me enough satisfaction to live on for days.
I squared my shoulders. “You’re a prisoner to your belief.”
His eyebrows rose, shock striking him before his face settled to that same well-orchestrated calm he reserved for his parishioners. “You can bet I’m a prisoner, but not for the reasons you think.”
His admission caught me off guard, but not more than the next moment did.
His palms caught my face, thumbs trailing down the warmth of my throat before he smashed our lips together.
His kiss defiled as much as it gave life.
He raped me to the depths of my soul without ever removing a strip of my clothing.
“But that’s where my beliefs with the church diverge.” He lips teased at the corners of my mouth before his tongue darted out, tasting the bow of my top lip.
Oh sweet fucking heaven.
“I happen to believe it isn’t living if you’re not breaking a rule every now and again.”
He caught the soft whimper on my lips with his, swallowing it instantly before his tongue pushed past the barrier and he was sheathed in me again.
His taste, far deadlier than I’d remembered.
“Despite what my church may believe,” Bastien’s thumbs hooked at my shirt, the warm pads of his fingertips sliding against my skin and cutting through my nerves like hot butter, “I can’t renounce you.”
His palms slid up my torso, divesting me of my shirt while one hand cupped a shiny chalice, drips of wine already making their way between my breasts. Staining the satin bra I wore, pooling in my navel, soaking a rebel river of red overtop the elastic of my panties.
“I know the taste of sin, sweet Tressa, I’ve tasted it every night in my dreams. Craving you is a new and deadlier form of hell than the last I’d overcome.” He dropped to his knees, the empty cup slipping to the floor and soaking his white robes in scarlet before his tongue met my flesh in slow swipes, eyes glinting as he held me flush to his mouth.
Soft mewls formed on my lips as my body fell apart in his arms, limbs loose as he worked his way up my body, tongue tasting every inch of the blessed wine from my skin as he went.
“I am very surely a prisoner to you, my sweet dove.”

REVIEW:

This is the first book I’ve read by JL Shen, and it will not be the last. I enjoyed it! It was a bit long, but the story was good with great characters, good plot twists, a few curves thrown in for good measure.

Francesca is a naïve, young woman at 19, who thinks she’s in love with her long-time family friend Angelo, then she meets Wolfe at a masquerade ball where she plans to get her first real kiss from Angelo who she believes is her true love. But instead of Angelo kissing her its Wolfe and since Wolfe is a crass, mean unimpressed man who is a rich Senator on a mission of revenge.

The attraction between Francesca and Wolfe grows with every page into the book from hate to love and every emotion in between.

Looking forward to more books by JL Shen.
