it was amazing

After the cliffhanger ending in book one, I couldn't wait to read this book.

We see the outcome of Xavier's & Anna's love in this book. Anna I felt grew stronger in this book, learning so much more after leaving her controlling family behind and finally having the life she deserves. She knows exactly what is worth fighting for.

Xavier is still a strong alpha male being held down by darkness, unbelieving that he deserves good and love in his life.

This was a fantastic read, it truly shows that no matter how much darkness there is, there is always light.

Filled with angst, murder, secrets revealed, love, light what more can you ask for in a read.

omg Xavier Cold is absolutely amazing.

We start were we left off in bk one. Anna and X are trying out thier relationship with each other. They both have very strong feelings for each other and Anna is trying to understand all that makes up X and she's trying to help him with his temper, but that becomes hard when it seems everything is going against them. X has a past with demons and they resurface making it hard to be honest with Anna, they have enemies who are wanting to destroy them. Is thier love strong enough, can Anna trust him when she needs him the most and will X finally realize his worth. I loved it what a great story and of course you want more. definitely a must read.


“You tired?” he asks. It doesn’t hit me until he mentions being tired on how exhausted I actually am. Tonight’s been stressful, and I’m sure, if I allow myself to close my eyes for even the briefest time, I’d fall asleep on the spot. But I refuse to let go of Xavier. When I thought they would lock him up and throw away the key, the opportunity to hold him against me anytime I wanted felt like it was quickly being ripped away. So, for now, I choose to stay here, in his presence, breathing him in as much as I possibly can. I tilt my head up and stare into his light-blue eyes. “I’m ready for bed, but I don’t want to sleep just yet.” For the first time since the chaos of the day began, Xavier smiles, but it’s not just any smile. It’s the heart-stopping one-sided smirk that drives me out of my ever-loving mind. “Have I turned my good girl naughty?” I give him my best wicked grin. “Afraid so. I can’t seem to get enough of you.” His large hands cradle my face. “Glad to hear it because I’m fucking addicted to you.” His lips press on mine, and I’m immediately lost in his kiss. The stubble on his face scratches my fingertips as I trace his jawline. “I need you.” A wicked gleam is in his eyes. “Is that so?” Xavier bends down and nips my lower lip. “You don’t know how much it turns me on when you ask for it. It takes every ounce of willpower in my body to stop myself from throwing you down on that bed and ravaging every inch of your body for my pleasure.” At the very thought of what that would be like, my pulse races under my skin. “What’s stopping you?” “You’re too sweet for that.” He leans in and runs his nose along my cheek, causing my entire body to quiver with anticipation. “And because you’re not ready to go there— to allow me to have full control— yet.” “How do you know?”

Temporary Assignment 5 Cover
Cole Bryant is a highly decorated Captain in the Marine Corps. His whole military career has been embedded deep inside a Special Ops organization. But that life is over. He is re-assigned to a recruiting office in Washington. It was at his request, in order to be closer to his sick mother, but pushing paperwork and selling the dream is far from the heart pumping, heat of battle he is used to. Savannah Rogers is a high achieving high school principle that doesn't have time for a relationship—even if she wanted one. When Cole and Savannah cross paths, both their worldviews are called into question. Can Cole trade in his high profile, risk-seeking life of service, for a simpler life? And will Savannah be able to let her guard down long enough to see that there are men with merit left in the world? Or, will the ravages of war destroy everything?

Title: Good-bye, with Love
Author: Niquel
Genre: Young Adult/New Adult
Release Date: January 15, 2016


Have you ever wished you could have something so bad, even though you knew it was forbidden?

Jonathan Gates was just that—forbidden. He was everything I could ever want in a man: charming, a great listener, open-minded, and funny. It also didn't hurt that he was easy on the eyes.

We'd been through a lot together: breakups, makeups, firsts, lasts, and anything else you can imagine. I was once told he was my soul mate, but I refused to believe that.

I didn't want to love him. I didn't want to fall for him because...he was my best friend!

But I did, and I fell for him hard. I was in love with my best friend, and it was time he knew how I really felt.

EXCERPT REVEAL: Reign by M.N. Forgy @m_n_forgy

reign excerpt reveal.jpg

“You know what I think it is?”
“I don’t really care,” I state, but I am curious.
“You want me.” He says it so softly I barely hear him. Glancing in my mirror, he’s looking down, his face unreadable, his tone serious.
“Don’t flatter yourself,” I respond curtly, trying to stay resilient. I’ve seen the girls who are associated with his club; he’s a player and is telling me what I want to hear.
He grunts, a smile breaking across his face. “You’re telling me you didn’t like me kissing you the other night? That my hand up your shirt didn’t light a fire in those little panties of yours?” His tone is arrogant. My body responds, my nipples hardening, craving to have his rough touch one more time. Goddamn him, why can’t he shut up?
“I was drunk,” I defend, looking out the windshield.
The car goes quiet, and I’m thankful; his confrontation made me uncomfortable.
“Hey, Rookie?”
“Hmm?” I look in the rearview mirror to see his face. His mouth is parted, the corner of one lip curved slightly as he looks downward.
“How sore do you think you’ll be after I’m done fucking you?”

reign cover.jpg


As the president of the Sin City Outlaw Motorcycle Club, l fuck as hard as I ride and rarely go to bed alone.
The women are fast and the violence is intense.
I excel in both.
People either respect me or fear me. I'm not arrogant. It’s just the truth.
I was a king, reigning over Vegas without complication, until one gorgeous sheriff made everything fall apart.
When I saw her, I became a Neanderthal, wanting nothing more than to be between those legs.
I guess that’s where I went wrong, because my reality was shot to hell real
fucking fast.
One kiss caused her to step over that blue line.
One night in her bed made me a traitor.
And now… we’re both screwed.
