Review: Steadfast by Sarina Bowen

Title: Steadfast

The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

She’s the only one who ever loved him—and the only one he can never have.

Jude lost everything one spring day when he crashed his car into an apple tree on the side of the road. A man is dead, and there's no way he can ever right that wrong. He’d steer clear of Colebury, Vermont forever if he could. But an ex-con in recovery for his drug addiction can’t find a job just anywhere.

For Sophie Haines, coming face to face with the man who broke her heart is gut-wrenching. Suddenly, he’s everywhere she turns. It’s hard not to stare at how much he’s changed. The bad boy who used to love her didn’t have big biceps and sun-kissed hair. And he’d never turn up volunteer in the church kitchen.

She knows it’s foolish to yearn for the man who returned all the heartsick letters she wrote him in prison. But the looks he sends her now speak volumes.

No one wants to see Sophie and Jude back together, least of all Sophie's police chief father. But it's a small town. And forbidden love is a law unto itself.


I need to admit that after finishing Bittersweet, I really didn’t want to read Jude’s story.  I thought he was an interesting character but I didn’t seem to think that much could come out of him and his past but I was SO WRONG! Not even a few pages in, I was hooked.  Jude’s backstory, his love for Sophie, the tragic way they parted, and now his arrival back in his home town had me more riveted than Griff and Audrey’s story. 

I don’t know if I can even express how much I loved this story.  If you just take Jude and break him down, he is the strongest character I have ever read about.  How he grew up with an alcoholic father and the horrible decisions that he made sent him to jail but in the end, it made him such a great person.  Even while battling his craving for drugs, Jude comes home to a town where he knows that he is not wanted because he has nowhere else to go.  He never blames others for his actions because he knows he made the first mistake of taking drugs and hiding his addiction.  Day in and day out he suffers quietly all while longing for Sophie but knowing that he is no longer worthy of her, that being with her would make it painful for the both of them.  And Sophie is just as strong, after the accident and loss of her brother, she lets go of her dreams and stays at home to take care of her mother.  But fate throws them together and things get electric!  This story isn’t just about Jude being reintroduced into society after serving his time and living with the consequences of his actions, it’s so much more.  I don’t want to say anything else because I want you to live it like I did while reading about these two beautiful characters.


Just go read it!

Review: Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen

The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the orchard.

The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they’d shared a couple of steamy nights together. But that was a lifetime ago.

At twenty-seven, Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, three siblings and a dotty grandfather. He doesn’t have time for the sorority girl who’s shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.

Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder’s travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay—a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way.

They’re adversaries. They want entirely different things from life. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey’s top secret enchilada sauce, and then some.


Bowen wrote a wonderful romantic story that involves a sassy female lead and a burly but lovable male lead that left me sighing multiple times throughout the book.  Something about her writing allowed me to picture every scene described in the book.  I knew what the Shipley’s farm looked like, their house and occupants, and the beloved apple orchard.  And not only did I picture everything but I felt everything.  I felt the growing love between Griffin and Audrey, I felt the love that Griff had for his family and the want to provide for them, and I also felt the intense worry and burden that Griff carried on his shoulder to support his family and workers.  This book really was written and laid out to engulf into the Shipley’s life and make you want to stay there.

I want to say that Griff felt like 100% to me and I mean this in the sense of I could see him being a real man, living on the east coast, working on his family’s farm, and trying his hardest not to fall in love with a girl who has big dreams.  Plus, he is insanely hot.  However. Audrey felt a little forced for me.  I love a girl with big dreams and the sass and will to back it up but every once and a while I wanted her to really stand up for herself in many different aspects of her life, basically her job and her mother.  It just seemed like she came in the Shipley’s lives and left the destruction of a tornado at times.  But in the end…wait, I can’t tell you that part.


I am excited to read the rest of the Shipley’s’ crew’s stories.  I just know that Zach’s story is going to blow my socks off and hopefully Jude’s story will as well.

EXCERPT: Blackie & Lacey

“Open the door, Lace,” I demanded, bracing my arms over the frame. “C’mon girl,” I coaxed.

She was quiet for a moment before she replied.

“It’s unlocked.”

I dropped my hand to the door knob, turning it before glancing over my shoulder— fuck it. I pushed my way inside, closing the door and twisting the lock before I turned around and got a view of the sexiest woman I ever laid eyes on.

Legs for days.

She wore a white lace thong paired with garter belts clipped to sheer thigh-high stockings with matching lace trim. The bra she wore lifted her already perky tits and pushed them over the sheer material so they appeared to be spilling from the cups.

“Girl,” I hissed, my eyes meeting hers in the mirror.

“So, you think it’s time I trade in your t-shirts and start parading around the house in these kind of get-ups?” She laughed, obviously nervous as she bit her lip.

I didn’t answer her with words.

Gave her my eyes and let them answer for me.

Yes.

Fuck yes.

“Turn around,” I ordered, taking a step closer, swallowing up the space between us.

“Blackie,” she whispered, turning around and locking her eyes with mine.

“Wanted me on my knees, girl,” I growled, dropping down on one knee, pressing my palms against her thighs, forcing them apart before dropping my other knee down on the floor. “Got me right where you wanted, right where I belong.”

I brushed my hair away from my face before palming her pussy over the lace and inching my index finger beneath the material.

“What if she comes back?”

“Then she’ll know she did her job properly,” I told her, shoving the lace away from her pussy and reaching behind her with my free hand. I squeezed her ass and brought her sweet cunt to my mouth, my tongue taking a lap down her center.

“My Lace, so fucking good, so fucking pretty,” I muttered in between strokes of my tongue. She grabbed onto my shoulders, fisting the leather in her hands as I peeled back her lace and took my fix.

Leather and Lace.

A temptation so sweet— a man drops to his knees just to survive.

HI!

So y’all know N, the author and quirky fangirl. But did you know….
I have an alter ego? She doesn’t wear a superhero outfit, but she is pretty badass.
In a geeky, fanfic writing, trashy TV watching, sort of way.
Wait. Stop. Fanfiction?
OOOOh, yes. Arei? My oh so awesome alter ego? Her super power is writing fanfiction. A freaking LOT of fanfiction. And I’m dragging her shy ass out of the closet and sharing it with you with A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT...
And N + Arei are launching a freaking AWESOME new website!!!


ForeverFangirl.com


Here’s a little about what N + Arei say about their new project:

I’m choosing to be happy and healthy. Because on the days when depression is too real and anxiety is crippling (and lately, with the state of the world, that’s a lot of the days) losing myself in a story that has no rules and no expectations is fun.


Read More Here

Check out N + Arei and ForeverFangirl.com today. She’s got a lot of goodies over there and if you go here she’s talking about a new novel she’s publishing on Wattpad.
And if you want to dabble before you commit—check out one of Arei’s fics here. (Warning. Sweet fluffy fanfiction about two hot actors.)
Check it out and then come talk to me (both N + Arei) on Twitter and Facebook! I’d love to hear what you think and what fandom I just HAVE to dabble in next. <3

Excerpt

Fighting Silence
Prologue


He didn’t budge, but my bare feet slipped, sending me toward the ground. Impossibly fast, Till’s hand snaked out and caught my arm. But I didn’t let his chivalrous gesture douse my fire. I had six months’ worth of words to say to the man I was irrevocably in love with.
“You took what you wanted. Then you left me.”
“Doodle,” he whispered.
I had been perilously close to the edge of insanity, and with one single word, he’d pushed me over.
I lost it completely.
Pounding my fists against his chest, I screamed at the top of my lungs, “It’s Eliza! My name is fucking Eliza! Not Doodle!” I spun to march away, but Till’s arms folded around me, lifting me off my feet to restrain me.
I was miniscule compared to him. There was no use in fighting, but I still kicked my legs, irrationally desperate to get away from him—but only because I knew I couldn’t keep him for forever.
“Stop it!” he growled into my ear. “I know your goddamned name—probably better than I know my own.”
While I was wrapped in Till’s strong arms, six months’ worth of tears fell from my eyes. He carried me to my apartment and guided me back through the window before following me inside. Then he stripped out of his blood-soaked shirt before dragging the blankets down and climbing into the bed behind me. I cried for a while in his arms, even turning to face him, only to cry against his chest. I had missed him so much.
I knew I’d loved Till years ago, but this was more. I needed him in order to function on a very basic level. Together, the world didn’t feel so big and overwhelming. He was my escape—the dream personified.
Till Page was comfortable.
His hands trailed up and down my back as he lulled me until the words fought their way out.
“I couldn’t stop going back,” I announced in a broken whisper. “I didn’t know where you had gone. And for the first time since I was thirteen, I was alone inside my own head. God. It was a scary place.” I tried to joke, but the tears streaming down my face told the truth.
“I’m sorry,” he responded on a sigh. “I couldn’t stay.”
“Why?” I whined, but I curled in closer against his chest, needing to feel him more than anything else.
“I don’t know, Doodle,” he lied.
God! It was such a fucking lie. He knew as well as I did. He just didn’t want to tell me.
“Where did you go?” I pressed further.
There was no way I ever could have expected his answer, but that wasn’t because it was a novel thought. No. His answer was surprising because it was the source of my anguish too.
“The real world.” He kissed my forehead.
