Love, In English - review

Love, In English is Karina Halle's best work to date!!! I loved everything about it, from the plot, to the characters, to the setting, to the ending. It was exciting, adventurous and makes me want to get on a plane to Spain!

When Vera Miles is offered the opportunity to go to Spain to teach conversational English to Spanish business men she takes it. It's there that she meets Mateo Casalles who is married, a father and just so happens to be a sexy ex-soccer player. Vera is the exact opposite of him. She's young, single and carefree yet she has a good head on her shoulders. Vera and Mateo form a friendship that turns into so much more.

Love, in English is a bit controversial yet undeniably complicated. There is no sugar coating the love and hardship that Mateo and Vera discover. 

“You can fall in love in a second,” she said with a snap of her fingers. “The heart has no regard for time.”
Karina Halle, Love, In English 


This book seduced me. I fell in love, had my heart broken, put back together and made me believe that true love happens when you least expect it. Love, in English is a beautiful story that I'm happy to have read. One of the best of the year so far!

Take Me for Granted - Release day!




Synopsis

Grant


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.


Aribel

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.

Excerpt

“So, after your phone died earlier today, you didn’t call me back.” Aribel rolled her eyes and picked up her pace, carrying us out across an open field. 

“Do you need my number for next time?” She humphed and kept walking. Jesus, what is with this chick? “You don’t take jokes very well, do you?” 
“Excuse me, but did I lose a glass slipper or something?” she asked. 
“What?” “A glass slipper. Do I look like Cinderella to you? Are you some kind of prince trying to sweep me off my feet? What is this whole charade, Grant?” 
“No charade, babe. I just wanted to see you and take you out.” 
“Uh-huh. Where exactly are you taking me?” I smirked at her. 
“Dinner.” My bed.
“Why do I have a feeling that we’re not talking about eating the same thing?” I chuckled to myself. She had me there. 
“Oh, come on. I didn’t even say that.” Though, if I had it my way, I’d be doing more than that tonight. 
“You didn’t have to,” she called over her shoulder. I caught up to her again and started walking backward in front of her. I was probably making a spectacle of myself, but I didn’t really care. She didn’t even seem to notice that people were staring at us. 
“Look, I really do want to take you out. I’m not one to deny myself the things I want, but I was talking about eating food with you.” 
“No. And anyway, how did you know to find me? Are you stalking me or something now? Should I invest in a rape whistle?” 
“No, but you can blow my whistle, baby.” 
“Oh, dear Lord.”--

After a car accident killed her parents when she was a child, Bronagh Murphy chose to box herself off from people in an effort to keep herself from future hurt. If she doesn't befriend people, talk to them or acknowledge them in any way they leave her alone just like she wants.

When Dominic Slater enters her life, ignoring him is all she has to do to get his attention. Dominic is used to attention, and when he and his brothers move to Dublin, Ireland for family business, he gets nothing but attention. Attention from everyone except the beautiful brunette with a sharp tongue.

Dominic wants Bronagh and the only way he can get to her, is by dragging her from the boxed off corner she has herself trapped in the only way he knows how...by force.

Dominic wants her, and what Dominic wants, Dominic gets.

Excerpt

My walk to Citywest Shopping Centre was a quick one and before I knew it, I was in Dunnes Stores walking around pushing a trolley. I took out the list Branna made and began picking up the items she wrote down. I added some cookies and other treats into the trolley, because it was that time of the month, and I needed them.

I was bending down to get the triple chocolate cookies - best cookies ever - on the bottom shelf. I had to go down on my knees, because there were only two packets left, and they were at the very back. I got them though, and when I stood up and turned to toss them in my trolley I froze mid-step.

"What the fuck are you doin' here?" I growled.

Dominic Slater's smirking face morphed into a smiling one. "What do you think I'm doing in a grocery store? Taking a shower?"

I pulled a face at him. "It's called a supermarket, you bloody eejit," I said coolly before moving towards my trolley.

Dominic stepped in front of me, blocking my way.

I blew out a big breath. "Move. Now!"

"Why weren't you in school today?" he asked, ignoring my demand.

He noticed I wasn't in today?

Probably because he had no one else to bully since I wasn't there.

"I'm sick," I said and tried to get around him once more.

He blocked my way again by stepping to the same side as me at the same time.

"You don't look sick," he commented.

I glared at him.

"Shows how much you know, doesn't it?" I growled.

I hunched forward a little when pressure erupted across my lower abdomen and caused me immense pain.

"Dominic, move out of me way!"

"Are you going to puke?" he asked, still blocking my way.

"Yeah, I'm goin' to puke, and I'm aimin' for you so move!" I warned.

Dominic snorted. "Nah, you don't look like you will be sick. You're obviously having stomach pain though."

"Thank you for that observation doctor Fuckface, now move!" I spat.

Dominic laughed at me then glanced to my hands. "I'll happily move… when you give me those cookies."

I cuddled the cookies to my chest as I would with a newly born infant.

"No fuckin' way, I got them first!"

Dominic rolled his eyes. "They are mostly likely the last triple chocolate cookies in the entire store since you had to get them from the very back of the shelf. If you want me to move, then you will give them to me."

"They were the last two packets in the shop, but I'm not givin' you either of them, and if you don't move I'll scream rape and have you arrested!" I warned.

He tipped his head back and laughed, so I took the opportunity and manoeuvred around him. I used one hand to hold the cookies to my chest and the other to grab my trolley.

"Oh, no you don't!"

When I felt hands come around my stomach from behind, I almost died.

He was touching me!

Dominic Slater had his hands on my stomach and had his body pressed into my back.

Oh, my Jesus.

Did this motherfucker have a death wish?

"I'll give you three seconds to get your hands and body away from me, otherwise I will knock you the fuck out!"

Dominic's chuckle in my ear made my body tense up even more than it already was.

"You think you can take me, pretty girl?"

Pretty girl?

Was he trying to be funny or something?

"I do!" I snapped then said, "Don't call me that again!"

"I can call you what I like and say what I like to you, freedom of speech and all that."

"You're so fuckin' stupid and a knob head… get off me!" I snapped then gasped when one of his arms came up and made a blatant grab for my cookies.

No. Fucking. Way!

I lifted my leg and kicked back against Dominic's shin; he grunted as he jumped back away from me. I whirled around and glared at him while he shook out his leg probably trying to shake the pain away.

"You fucking bitch!" he hissed.

I smiled at him. "That will be your balls if you ever touch me again. Have you not learned your lesson that touchin' me results in me hittin' you?"

He rolled his eyes and rubbed his cheek as if still feeling the pain of the slap I delivered to him on Wednesday for touching my arse.

He dropped his hands and grinned at me. "You have a phat ass, I couldn't help myself from having a feel."

I gaped at him.

He just called me fat.

He actually just called me fat.

I didn't care if I looked the size of a whale; you just didn't call a girl fat, especially to her fucking face.

The insult hurt me, and I hated that. I wanted to hurt Dominic back so I threw the insult back at him even though he was nothing but trimmed muscle.

"You are fat!" I snapped then turned and grabbed my trolley with one hand to push it away.

Fuckface stopped me though.

He wedged himself between me and my trolley. I didn't like it, not one bit.

"I didn't call you fat."

The dirty liar!

I growled at him. "You did too, you lying sack of shite!"

"I said you have a phat ass, there is a difference," he stated.

What?

"No there isn't, you said me arse is fat-"

"Phat as in sexy," he purred.

I stared at him, suppressing the urge to beat him to death with my cookies.

"Fat is not sexy," I stated.

"When you have a phat ass it is," Dominic said, still standing in front of me. "I don't mean fat as in fat, I just meant it as in good type of big, not an obese type of big. You have a big butt, and that is sexy."

Why the fuck were we having this conversation about my fat but not fat arse?

"I don't give a fuck. Me and me fat arse want to move on with our trolley so get outta the way."

Dominic smirked and held out his hand and said, "Cookies first."

I gripped the cookies tighter. "You will have to pry them from me cold, dead fingers, you lanky bastard."

Dominic smirked and took a step towards me; I panicked and swung my arm catching him across the face with my hand. He actually stumbled to the side and out of my way as he gripped his face. I shot forward, grabbed my trolley, and all but sprinted up the aisle.

"Bronagh!" he shouted.

I turned and headed straight for a checkout till, more than ready to pay for the items and get home. People obviously heard Dominic shouting and were looking down the aisle where I just shot out from. I pretended to be confused as well; I didn't want anyone thinking I was the Bronagh that Dominic was shouting after.

I jumped into a queue and began to unload my trolley items onto the conveyor belt, while mentally shouting at the woman in front of me to hurry up and pack her things.

"I could have you arrested for assault, you know that right? That's twice you hit me back there."

I sighed, knowing he purposely chose to come to this till just to piss me off.

"It was self-defence, you put your hands on me first without permission," I spat as I nudged my trolley forward without looking around at him.

"That's bullshit," Dominic snarled.

I rolled my eyes. "Get over it, you big baby."

I surged forward when the lady in front of me was finished, and thankfully, the woman serving me had my stuff scanned and helped me bag them in record time.

"Those cookies are the nicest ones in the entire shop, they are always sold out." The woman smiled when she tucked them into a bag.

I looked up at Dominic, who was glaring at me. It made me smile before I looked at the woman.

"I agree, they are delicious."

"Evil bitch," Dominic muttered, making the woman snap her head to him, and it caused me to snort a little.

I paid the woman, grabbed the three carrier bags, and heaved them down. They were heavy, and I hated that Branna wasn't here with her car to help me bring them home.

I sucked in a large breath and headed for the exit of the shop only to pause at the doors, almost whimpering right there and then. It was absolutely lashing rain outside. I didn't know why I was so surprised, it always happened. It could be mild and cool here in Dublin one minute then belting rain the next.

I sighed and looked up at the sky after a full minute of just staring out at the rain. "You just can't cut me a break, can you, Jesus?"

"I don't think he replies to people who assault innocents."

I jumped at his voice, which he laughed at.

I shook my head without looking at Dominic when he came to stand next to me. "How the hell did you pack your things and pay for them so quickly?" I questioned.

"Magic," he replied.

I rolled my eyes. "Well, use some magic and disappear from me presence."

Dominic snorted. "You would love that, wouldn't you?"

I looked at him, narrowed my eyes, and smiled. "I would love nothin' more than for you to disappear from the face of the earth, Fuckface."

Dominic looked like he suddenly wanted to murder me so I stepped away from him.

"No wonder you bought tampons, it must be that time of the month." He shook his head.

He saw my tampons?

Oh, God!

I felt my face flush. "Shut the hell up!"

He grinned at me. "You're seriously mean on your period."

Oh, my God!

Get me the hell out of here.

"Well, this was horrible, I hope we don't run into each other here - or anywhere - ever again. Bad day to you, sir." I bowed my head and stepped out into the rain.

I felt a chill run up my spine, so I straightened myself up, ignored the pain of the plastic bags digging into my fingers, and pushed on walking.

"Do you want a ride?" I heard Dominic's voice shout from my far left.

I gasped and spun in his direction, noticing that he was moving towards a large black Jeep.

"You dirty bastard! How dare you ask me that!” I shouted.

Dominic paused his stride and looked at me with his eyebrows raised before he laughed.

"Crap, I meant a lift as in a lift home in my car. I didn't mean a ride as in the meaning of what a ride is over here… I'm not asking you to ride me, Bronagh."

I felt myself flush.

"Whatever, I don't need a lift!"

SYNOPSIS:

Whose parents abandon them in a trashy trailer when they are five years old? Oh Yeah! Mine do!

A pirate with a little princess and they swept me off my ever lovin' feet, filling my world with sprinkles, mac n’ cheese and the courage to live again. 

They forced my fragile heart to trust and love without fear.

TRIPP 
(My Way Series #2)
SYNOPSIS:

Lacey’s Story…

Covering up pain is easy. It’s keeping it tucked away that’s hard. I’ve always needed the cover of tattoos to hide the nasty past that leached its way into me, tainting me beneath my skin. 

Not the shiny, trendy tats, but the ugly broken kind, meant to keep the world at bay. If they weren’t enough, then my piercings, foul mouth and crazy hair usually did the trick. Life had taught me to never follow the rules, because when you do, you get burned.

My life was perfectly imperfect until Tripp…

Our relationship is what most would describe as fuel meeting fire. We were both hell bent on burning each other to the ground. Tripp was sexy as hell, a charismatic beast, and soon became one of my best friends. We shared a love of ice cream and tattoos as we blazed our own path that could only lead to a beautiful train wreck. 

The only question left is, will we set the countryside ablaze with our hot tempers and foul mouths? Or will we paint our own happy ending filled with all the gushy shit normal people crave?

Synopsis

Easy going soldier Kale Montgomery, a self- proclaimed ladies man, has no plans of settling down, especially not with his best friend- the sexy, sassy schoolteacher Lucy Dawson. Their relationship, though unconventional, is mutually beneficial, and they wouldn't have it any other way. Friends with benefits? Casual lovers? Whatever you want to call it, they’re having fun, in and out of bed, and to them, that’s all that matters. At least that’s what they think, but how long can you spend in someone's bed before you find they're also infiltrating your heart? As their casual fling with no strings attached progresses, it's not long before they realize they're both in way over their heads. One fateful night changes their lives forever in ways they could never have imagined, giving them the push to finally admit that maybe, just maybe they want more than they’ve let on. Their mutual attraction rapidly intensifies as it shifts from burning lust to unrelenting want, need, and possibly even love. Suddenly the idea of settling down doesn't seem so bad. In fact, it sounds pretty damn perfect. Just when things seem to be falling into place, past pain and renewed insecurities rise to the surface and threaten to smother the flames of their passionate relationship, reminding them both why they’ve always kept the idea of love at arm's length. Will Kale and Lucy realize that what they've been waiting for is each other, or will the blazing whirlwind of their feelings burn out too quickly, causing it to all go up in smoke?    

Excerpt

She looks me over, and I love the fact that she’s checking me out. I don’t know why I’m so drawn to her, but I am, and I want to get to know her better, at least where the bedroom’s concerned. Eventually, she extends her hand, and I give a firm handshake, the kind she wanted when we first met. “Please, Kale, call me Lucy.” Shaking her hand, I say it out loud. “Lucy. I like it.” “That’s fortunate since I’m stuck with it. Okay, Montgomery. As much as I love flirting with a hot ass soldier in the parking lot of an elementary school, I’ve got to get going. Maybe I’ll see you around?” She starts to walk away, but I grab her hand, reeling her back in. I’m not ready for her to go, yet I don’t want to seem like some crazy stalker guy. “Can I see you again? You know, outside of an elementary school?” I ask, my eyes bearing down into hers, begging for her to say yes. She hesitates, and I’m afraid she’s about to say no when she finally responds. “I don’t date. I’m not looking for anything serious, so if that’s what you’re looking for, I’m the wrong girl.” My cock practically sings at her words. A no strings attached relationship with a hot teacher right before I deploy? I couldn’t have asked for better luck. “I don’t do relationships, either, Lucy. I just want to get to know you and to have some fun. No feelings, no strings, no nothing,” I tell her, and watch as a look of relief washes over her. She starts digging in her purse and I watch as she scribbles something on a piece of paper before hanging it to me. “Number’s right there. Call me when you’re feeling adventurous,” she says. Before I can say anything, she spins around and swiftly walks away, leaving me to wonder just how adventurous she can be.

If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
