Release Blitz

UNTIL THEN by Delisa Lynn
My name is Kole Harris, and I loved being a detective. Until…

One cold September day, everything in my world imploded. After losing my wife, I was sure I’d never be whole again. I never imagined my life could be normal. Drinking and one-night stands became my new normal—the only way I knew to survive the pain.

Until her…

She opened my eyes and made me believe I can love again. She showed me what it’s like to wake up next to a woman and not run, how to leave the guilt behind and live again—and that I deserve to have a life. I never knew love like this, or craved anyone as much as I crave her.

My name is Rosealy Taylor, and two years ago I lost the only man I’d ever loved…

Moving on seemed overwhelming, but I had to learn that loving someone else was possible. However, the heartache from his past has built a wall around the love I know he can give. I never thought I could give my heart to someone else.

Until him.

Will our painful pasts destroy any hope for our future?

During the day she works as a Medical Assistant and at night, she types away on her laptop, allowing her characters to escape her mind.

Wes ‘Stiff’ Collins lived life on the wild side. He worked from the moment he knew what the word meant, always making the best of every situation. There was nothing about his past he would change. Without a real family except his brother Xander, Stiff joined the Vipers Creed Motorcycle Club, and they taught him what it was to have people he could depend on. When his past crashed into his present, he vowed to protect the club that had always been his steady, even if it meant turning his back on the woman who had given him life. Chelsea Miller’s life was simple: work, take care of her family, and save for the future. Everything was about having a goal and a plan. However, when her sister ended up battered and bruised on a diner floor, everything she thought was in her past suddenly threatened her future. In a moment, she had a new goal, everything else be damned. She would protect her family … at all costs. Stiff and Chelsea’s worlds collide in an explosion of determination, strength, and lust. Will they give in to temptation, or will conquering each other be too steep a price? Two people not afraid to put in the work will either overcome everything in their paths or finally crumble under life’s troubles they can’t escape, all in the name of family. **Due to content, mature audiences only.**

Recenzie alter.ego de Ana Mănescu

Numele meu este Sonnja. Sunt vicioasă, singură, răzvrătită şi mizerabilă.
Noi vom schimba lumea. Suntem cei care vibrează. Stârnim valuri, uragane şi cutremure, dar merită. Sau cel puţin asta am crezut toţi la început.
Printre cărţi, tripuri, flashback-uri, eşecuri, iluzii, idealuri, ţigări, vin, iarbă, un fort din cuburi de zahăr impregnate cu acid, metamorfoze, felinare care dansează, Muzica goală, fluturi, uragane, sex, dragoste, prietenie şi artă, mesajul este simplu: păstrează-ţi esenţa şi iubeşte. În ordinea asta.

My opinion:
Ana Mănescu cu siguranță a reușit să se strecoare sub pielea mea cu ușurință și cum nici un alt autor nu a reușit să facă asta. Una e să adori munca unui autor, să îi adori o carte sau o serie și alta e ca un autor să devină preferatul tău. Iar Ana Mănescu a reușit această performanță, cum nu a reușit nimeni până acum. M-a vrăjit cu scrisul ei și poveștile ei întortocheate care vorbesc minți și cel mai important, sufletului meu.

A reușit să mă suprindă din nou. Încă o premieră pentru mine. E a doua carte pe care o citesc scrisă de această autoare; și Quasar mi s-a părut excepțională, dar asta…. BOOM. MIND EXPLODING.
Alter.ego. este scrisă în aceași manieră deosebită și minunată pe care autoarea o realizează în cărțile ei. Scrisul ei cred că este unul potrivit adolescenților, pentru ca este deosebit, plin de armonie și muzicalitate și tot odată simplu. Cred ca mulți adolesceni pot identifica în această carte o părticică din gândurile lor și viața lor de zi cu zi. Pentru că nu e așa de ușor să pui pe hărtie niște gânduri confuze, cărora, unor cititor, poate, să nu le ofere absolut nimic.

Cartea cere o descifrare. Dar în sensul că numai tu să o înțelegi. Fiecare trebuie să îi descopere lumea, în modalitatea lor proprie. Iar, de cele mai multe ori mintea noastră se umple de confuzie la orice pas, la orice frază citită, la orice cuvânt sau citat deosebit din carte. E perfect normal. Cartea asta nu e scrisă doar pentru poveste în sine. E scrisă pentru a oferi o voce gândurilor. Iar confuzia face parte din acele cuvinte.
Cartea asta nu are nevoie de judecată sau de o categorie aparte. Acest conținut al cărții trebuie trăit, doar prin simplul fapt că îndeplinești pe parcursul citirii ei etapele menite: tristețe, suferință, confuzie, nervozitate.
De mult nu am mai citit ceva atât de pur și murdar în același timp. Chiar dacă folosește un limbaj destul de uzual și „murdar”, gândurile exprimate în așa fel încât să alcătuiască o poveste pentru noi cititorii… OMG! THAT IS BEYOND AWESOME.
M-am identificat mult cu această carte, poate mult mai mult decât Quasar. Poate că aceasta a transmis mai multă emoție în mine, dar a vorbit sufletului meu, iar pentru asta nu o s-o uit niciodată.
Deși o să credeți că este o poveste simplă și plictisitoare, este mai mult decât atât. Nu aveți nevoie de o descriere, de păreri despre personaje… Just go blind in it! Pentru că e mai mult de atât. Și știu că pe mulți dintre voi o să ajute cartea asta. Pentru că, câteodată gândurile nu sunt menite a fi înțelese, ci sunt menite a fi trăite.

Cartea are 210 pagini, copertă paperback și o puteți comanda de pe site-ul Editurii HergBenet.

Favorite quotes:

„Visul este cosmogonia unei seri. În fiecare noapte, cel care visează reîncepe lumea.”

„Îmi plac atingerile intenționat greșite.”

„Dar se temea de umbre, așa că nu putea sta într-una.”

„Ar suge toată fericirea din mine cu o singură privire dezaprobatoare.”

„Caut să iubesc, cred că e cel mai frumos și greu lucru pe care îl poți face.”

Gone Wild by Dakota Madison
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Go BACK TO BOOKMAN with USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Dakota Madison's new #LoveinMidlife #ComingofMiddleAge romantic comedy series.

Tenured English professor Bly Daniels believes the short walk from her campus office to the university library is too much exposure to the harsh elements of the outdoors. She would prefer to spend her days (and nights) comfortably seated indoors reading classic literature.

When Bly is arrested for reading one of the great books while driving home, a judge sentences her to thirty days of community service with The Wild Way, a therapeutic wilderness program for troubled teens.

There she meets Turner Wild, the owner and operate of the wilderness program. Turner is everything Bly despises: rugged, unrefined and outdoorsy. For Bly a trip to hell sounds more desirable than spending an entire month with Turner and his band of hooligans as they traverse the woods of rural northwest New Jersey communing with nature.

Bly certainly never expects to form a bond with the troubled teens she's been assigned to mentor and forge an unlikely relationship with their fearless leader, Turner Wild.

Each full-length novel in Dakota Madison's LOVE IN MIDLIFE romantic comedy series can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the series. Each story features one of the graduates of Bookman College attending their 25th reunion.


“This is as far as I go,” the crusty old cab driver barks as he stops in front of a long dirt road that disappears into the woods.
“How far is it to the wilderness camp?” I ask.
“Pretty far, I would imagine. It’s not visible from the road at all.”
“And how am I supposed to get there?”
“I guess you’re just going to have to walk.”
I laugh until I realize he’s not joking. He expects me to walk into the woods on a dirt road that is God knows how long.
Then I realize I’ll also have to carry my bag as well. I could barely carry my suitcase to the front stoop for him to place in his truck.
“I can only take the cab on paved roads,” he tells me. “Company rules.”
Is that supposed to make me feel better? It doesn’t.
I heave a huge sigh. “How much do I owe you?”
I hand him three ten dollar bills, plus a five dollar tip.
“Let me get your bag out of the trunk.”
When he exits the cab I take a moment to compose myself. I’m already so far out of my comfort zone I feel like I’m having a panic attack, and I haven’t even made it to the camp yet.
You’re an intelligent woman with a doctoral degree, I remind myself. You can do this.
By the time I exit the cab my bag is already on the side of the road waiting for me.
“Good luck,” the cab driver says.
It probably wasn’t the smartest idea I ever had to wear a dress and pumps. In my defense I don’t have much else in my wardrobe. Work attire and lounging outfits for around the house are about it. When I teach I always wear a dress or a suit with dress shoes. I wouldn’t be caught dead outside of my home in one of my lounging outfits.
Calling the dirt pathway a road is extremely generous. The trail is much rockier and uneven than I initially thought. The shoes I’m wearing are not even close to being appropriate for the conditions. I’ll be lucky if I don’t turn an ankle.
My suitcase is another problem entirely. I can barely make it a few feet before I have to set it down. The muscles in my arms are already throbbing and I haven’t even made it far enough to spot the end of the trail yet.
Luckily it’s still early in the day. I’ve got many hours of sunlight left. Even if it takes me several hours walking a few steps at a time I should make it there before dark.
Unless it’s a few miles to the camp, then I’ll be in a bit of trouble.
Two hours and thirty seven minutes later I’ve had about all that I can take. My feet are blistered and aching. I’m afraid when I finally remove my shoes my feet will be bloody as well.
My arms are so weak I don’t think I can lift the suitcase again.
And I’m on the verge of complete exhaustion.
What was I thinking packing so much stuff? I was thinking I’ll be here an entire month and I need reading materials.
Here is no water but only rock
Rock and no water and the sandy road.
Those words from T.S. Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land’ seem appropriate right now. I take a seat on my suitcase and wipe the sweat from my brow with a tissue that I just happened to have shoved in my pocket. I can’t even remember the last time I sweated. It may have been in high school when we were forced to play those utterly horrendous sports in our Physical Education classes.
I was supposed to be at the apex of my career this year. I was finally promoted from Associate to Full Professor. Edgar had been hinting that when he retired I was first in line to take over as Chairperson of the English Department. I was just a few months away from paying off the mortgage on my house.
Now it looks like I might lose everything, and I’m sitting in the middle of the woods helpless to do anything about it. Edgar was not happy when I told him I needed to take a month of personal leave and he’d need to find a substitute to teach my classes. That coupled with the fact that my arrest and conviction has tarnished the reputation of the institution does not bode well for me still having a career upon my return from this journey into the wilderness. 
The sun is starting to get higher overhead, and it’s beating down on me. I’m not sure how much of the blistering brightness my pale skin can take. I should probably edge closer to the tree line where it’s shaded, but I’m too exhausted to move. 
I’m just about to fall asleep seated on my suitcase when a large pickup truck whizzes by. I try to raise a hand to wave the driver over, but to no avail. My arm won’t lift high enough.
Instead I choke on the dust left in the truck’s wake.
Then to my surprise the trucks comes to a screeching halt, reverses and heads back towards me.
When I rise to greet the driver my legs feel like cooked noodles. They’re so weak I can barely control them as I move towards the truck.
My eyes go wide when I see who has hopped out of the vehicle. The driver is a young, petite woman of Asian descent.
From the neck up she’s beautiful, with long silky dark hair and perfect features. From the neck down she’s dressed like a man. She’s wearing well-worn jeans, black combat boots and a green Army jacket.
“Are you lost?” Her tone is accusatory, definitely not friendly.
I shake my head.
“You know this road leads to a wilderness camp for troubled teens.”
“I do.”
She looks me up and down. “You don’t look like you’re ready for the wilderness, and you’re definitely not a teenager.”
“I’m aware of that.” My voice is weary. “I’m court ordered to be here. Community service.”
She rolls her eyes. “Lucky us.”
“Unfortunately the cab driver wouldn’t take me beyond the main road. I’ve been walking for hours.”
“Would you like a lift?” She raises an eyebrow.
“That would be greatly appreciated. Thank
