My teaser this week is from Stardust by Alyssa Rose Ivy




“You took a modifier.” He smoothed my hair again.
“Yes.” I’d already admitted it to Kelby. No reason to hide it.
“Why? You’ve never taken one before.”
“Gardenia suggested it.” I was sure Kelby had already supplied that information.
“But why did you take it?” He cupped my cheek with his hand. “I would have thought tonight of all nights you would have had all the happiness you needed.”


What if the one you thought was your savior was actually your captor?

The earth was never destroyed. A few words uttered by a stranger change Rachel’s life forever. After years of believing earth is gone, Rachel discovers that she cannot trust anything she thought was true or anyone she thought she loved, including the alien prince she was bound to spend her life with. Terrified and angry she takes a chance— and returns to earth.

College sophomore Noah is just going through the motions. He is numb to everything and everyone since tragedy took his brother away far too soon. All he wants to do is survive another year of school until everything changes— he meets her.

Not quite sure what to make of Rachel’s sudden appearance on his doorstep, Noah offers her help, and she unwittingly pulls him into a mess of intergalactic proportions. As the stakes are raised, their attraction to one another builds into something so much more than stardust.

AudioBook Review! My Last Chance by Weston Parker





My Last Chance by Weston Parker
Narrator:
Lacy Laurel
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: September 18, 2018
Publisher: BrixBaxter Publishing

I’ve made lots of mistakes.

But never one like this. 

Back in high school, the girl next door spent a serendipitous night in my arms. But she wasn’t my type or really up to my level. 

So I walked away not knowing her secret—our secret. 

Years later, I’m still at the top of my game, ruling my own chunk of the world. 

She walks into my office a different woman. Strong, sexy, and dead set on revenge. 

I need to walk away again, but I can’t. She’s a different person, and yet, all the things that first had me taking a chance with her pull me back in—deeper this time. 

She’s going to wreck my life, one bad decision at a time, and fuck me, I’m going to let her. 

The fact that the little man who calls her mom acts like me stops me in my tracks. He even loves the same things I do.

Surely not. 

No damn way I’ve been a selfish bastard and haven’t considered the possibilities of our night together so long ago, but it’s true. 

He’s mine, and I’m instantly in love with both of them. 

I need one more chance, and I’ll do anything to get it.


My Last Chance by Weston Parker is a wonderful second chance romance that pulls you in and lets you forget the world around you. The story is told from both Lana and Sean's point of view, and the narrator did a fantastic job portraying each character. It was easy to distinguish between when she spoke as Sean as opposed to Lana. She was expressive and pulled me right into their lives. The story itself did too. Sean sure needed to be slapped around, and Lana did just that.. metaphorically speaking anyway. She upended his whole view on how he has treated women, and I loved that. I'd hoped it would be a little harder for Lana to forgive him, but it worked all the same. Also, it was a cute story. So, it's hard to trump some good ole' cuteness... not to mention the steamy situations. I love second chance romances, and this was no exception. I completely enjoyed it from start to finish, and I'd love to check out more from this author.

After going to school to obtain her BS and MBA, then starting a rather large and boisterous family, Lacy Laurel dove back into literature in order to relieve stress and have a little "me" time. Once finding audiobooks and falling in love with performance all over again, she set her sights on learning the art of telling an interesting and exciting story. Naturally being the passionate person that she is, she gravitated towards romance and erotica. Lacy thoroughly enjoys getting to bring stories of passion, love, loss, hunger, and angst to life.
