"And though she be but little, she is fierce."
Fading is the story of Candace Parker and her brave, emotional tale of recovery and survival. Candace has not had an easy life. Her hopeful career choice in ballet is only one of the reasons that her parents are disappointed in her. Not being able to live up to their standards, she continues to do what she loves.
After a brutal attack, Ryan Campbell saves an unknown girl in an alley. As their paths cross again, the two build a friendship that is based on trust and time. (I must say that I love Ryan!!! What a great guy!) He truly falls for Candace not knowing that she is the girl he saved until they are in a relationship. Of course when Candace finds out that he knew her secret all along, her world is turned upside down again.
Fortunately, love and trust win and we get Ryan's story in Book #2, Falling from E.K. Blair. I can't wait to read it!
When Sydney Blake's world is turned upside down, Ridge Lawson is there to help her pick up the pieces. Believing that he's finally found his muse, Sydney helps Ridge put lyrics to his songs. The two of them form an emotional bond over music that goes deeper than you can imagine. This book is full of ups and downs and will completely take you on a ride that you will not want to get off.
From the lyrics, to the texts, to the heartbeats, you will feel this book with every piece of your soul. It was truly a beautiful book and I can't wait to see what Ms. Hoover has in store for us next.
If you're looking for a heartwarming story about a girl who falls deeply in love with a troubled boy who changes her life--a sob story with pretty metaphors and a million ways that'll tell you how "broken" she is, STOP. Don't read another word of this.
I'm not that type of girl.
My name is Emerald Anderson and I'm not going to bullshit you: I flunked out of college after my sophomore year, I've been fired from every job I've ever taken, and I've never had a fully functioning relationship in my life.
I wish I could say that I had a cheerleader in my corner, someone who says, "No, Emerald- -You're great and you are good at something!" but I don't. My grandparents are completely oblivious to my life, and my mother's dying words to me were "You're going to end up just like me one day. A beautiful nothing."
She was right.
As I decide to start my life over and take two jobs that will forever change me--one from the inside, and one from the outside, I keep my mother's words close to my heart so I can keep the sexy and mysterious Carter Black away.
He's the first man who's ever pursued me, the first man who seems bent on finding out why I am the way I am, but he's wasting his time.
I'm not broken. I don't need to be fixed. I'm perfectly fine being a beautiful failure...

Manwhore. Adrenaline junkie. Lead singer of ContraBand. What you see is what you
get. I make no apologies for my actions, and by now no one expects any from me. I
live my life the way I want and as long as it pushes the demons back, then I'm solid.
I've never needed a chick for more than a good lay. Why would I need just one when
I can have a different one every night?
Until she walks into my world.
Mouthy. Perfectionist. Princeton student. Chemistry major. Yes, that pretty much
describes me. Oh, and virgin. But I'm only nineteen, and have more important things
to concern myself with. What really matters is finishing my degree and getting a
good job. I’ve worked hard for what I want, and do what’s expected of me. I don’t
need anyone to get in my way.
Until he opens up my world.
But if I give you my world, whatever you do…don’t TAKE ME for granted.

My name is Willow Masters. I’m a senior in college, I’m smart and I keep to myself. I haven’t had an “incident” in over ten years. What all of these facts have in common is that none of them made any difference when it came to Ebon Daniels.
He started out as my sister’s date. I was instantly infatuated, but had no plans to do anything about it. I even managed to keep my feelings hidden when he took over my Modernist Literature class for the semester. The problems didn’t start until my sister took pages from my book—literal pages from a book I was writing—and gave them to the one person never intended to see them.
That’s when the lies started. That’s also when I saw an opportunity to make my only dream become a reality.How could a lie get me all that I ever wanted and, only a few months later, cost me everything that has ever mattered?
It doesn’t seem possible, but it is. It’s possible, it’s true and it’s tragic. In my book, there is a happy ending, but I don’t know if my life will have the same outcome.
My name is Willow Masters and this is the story of how falling in love with my teacher nearly destroyed both of our lives.
And it still might.
It’s the guilt in her voice that gives me pause. Sage doesn’t feel guilty about anything.
Ever. And it makes me think…
That’s when the second emotion rips through me like a furious tidal wave. Two and
two equals four, and four in the case is the worst possible outcome in the history of
the world. But surely my math is wrong. Surely…
My heart is slamming against my ribs. She didn’t…
I mean, it’s not like she would ever…
Surely she wouldn’t…
“Sage, what did you do?”

Who am I?
And, what the hell are you doing here?
Let’s start with the most obvious question, shall we?
You’re here, ladies, because you can’t f*ck.
Oh, stop it. Don’t cringe. No one under the age of 80 clutches their pearls.
You might as well get used to it, because for the next six weeks, you’re going to hear that word a lot. And you’re going to say it a lot.
Go ahead, try it out on your tongue.
Ok, good. Now where were we?
If you enrolled yourself in this program then you are wholly aware that you’re a lousy lay. Good for you. Admitting it is half the battle.
For those of you that have been sent here by your husband or significant other, dry your tears and get over it. You’ve been given a gift, ladies. The gift of mind-blowing, wall-climbing, multiple-orgasm-inducing sex. You have the opportunity to f*ck like a porn star. And I guarantee, you will when I’m done with you.
And who am I?
Well, for the next six weeks, I will be your lover, your teacher, your best friend, and your worst enemy. Your every-f*cking-thing. I’m the one who is going to save your relationship and your sex life.
I am Justice Drake.
And I turn housewives into whores.
“Unless he’s completely desperate or under the influence, a man can’t -
and won’t - fuck what doesn’t get him hard.”
Less gasps this time, but every perfectly powdered face is beet red with
embarrassment, causing my mouth to slide into a sardonic smirk.
Truth be told, I love this shit. I love ruffling their meticulously groomed
feathers. Their obvious discomfort entertains me. Seeing the rosy hue of coyness
bleed through their blush is like a balm to my little, sadistic soul.
“And in that case,” I continue, “you don’t want him anyway. What you do
want is for him to be salivating at the soles of your Jimmy Choos. And let’s face it,
ladies… that’s not happening. Why do you think that is?”
Crickets. Fucking crickets.
“Anyone? Come on, ladies. I can’t help you unless you want to be helped.
So unless you all have picture-perfect marriages and husbands that blow your
backs out on a regular, I should see some hands.”
This time I’m rewarded with the almost simultaneous intake of eleven
breaths. They’re all still here. All willing to bare their souls and dirty laundry in
an attempt to rekindle the doused flame between their thighs.
You see, women are liars.
Yeah, I said it. L-I-A-R-S.
They want intimacy just as badly as men do. But to them, intimacy is more
than just the physical act of sex. They want to be cherished yet want a man that
will get down and dirty. They want tenderness, but crave to be banged like a $2
hooker. They want a man that’ll go all night, but still have the energy to kiss and
cuddle and talk about their feelings afterward.
Listen up, ladies. We’re fucking tired! You try going jackrabbit-style, throw
in some Cirque du Soleil moves and see if you can keep your eyelids peeled. Us
passing out after sex is a compliment- a testament to how good it was. And quite
frankly, if your dude can hop out of the sack and go to work or run a marathon,
then he still has energy left for sex. He’s just done having sex with you.

Jonah Noble is the Master himself. He has a way with words and delivers his tale of how he became a master in the BDSM lifestyle. Written by a man, Jason Luke truly knows that it's all about anticipation. I have been waiting for a book like this, so different yet so simple and engaging. You can feel the anticipation dripping off the pages as you read them.
While I wasn't a big fan of Leticia or their lack of chemistry, I was pleased to find out that this is in fact part of a series and I'm looking forward to more of the Master!
