 The Five Love Languages (How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mat) by Gary Chapman




Author's Message: Between busy schedules and long days, expressing love can fall by the wayside. We forget to compliment, to give gifts “just because,” to linger in our embrace. The things that say “I love you” seem to either not get said or not get through. This is a book about saying it—and hearing it—clearly. No gimmicks. No psychoanalyzing. Just learning to express love in your spouse’s language.

I urge you to grab a copy of this book! Dr. Gary Chapman’s advice will help you understand, study, and unlock your spouse's love language. Dr. Chapman’s advice to showing and receiving love will help you experience deep and richer levels of intimacy with your spouse.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s inside…. “Real love" – "This kind of love is emotional in nature but not obsessional. It is a love that unites reason and emotion. It involves an act of the will and requires discipline, and it recognizes the need for personal growth.”

One of my favorite quotes is “I am amazed by how many individuals mess up every new day with yesterday.” Hands down this is true, that’s why we always say “tomorrow is a new day” or “today is a new day” For that reason, learn to forgive each other, always remember the Past is HISTORY, and encourage positive attitudes towards each other.

BARED TO YOU... He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I'd never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily… Gideon knew
Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. I didn't want to. He was my addiction… my every desire… mineMy past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We'd never work. It was too hard, too painful… except when it was perfect. 
From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn't resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside–so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me.

My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh.

The Alpha Series (click to buy)
 The first time it happened, it seemed like an impossible miracle. Bills were piling up, adding up to more money than I could ever make. Mom's hospital bills. My baby brother's tuition. My tuition. Rent. Electricity. All of it on my shoulders. And I had just lost my job. There was no hope, no money in my account, no work to be found. And then, just when I thought all hope was lost, I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of ten thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.," and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing…except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters. 
BETA… Roth and I are on an open-ended tour of the world. Roth being Roth, this means missionary in Morocco, reverse cowgirl in Calcutta, bent over the bow of a houseboat in Hanoi, slow and sleepy on St. John. Anywhere and everywhere, in every conceivable position, and some I didn't know were possible. Life was pretty incredible. Until I woke up in his chateau in France, alone. On the bed next to me was a note. There were only four words: He belongs to me.

The Stark Series (click to buy)

And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past—and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him and us—forever.
CLAIM ME…. Damien Stark’s need is palpable—his need for pleasure, his need for control, his need for me. Beautiful and brilliant yet tortured at his core, he is in every way my match. I have agreed to be his alone, and now I want him to be fully mine. I want us to possess each other beyond the sweetest edge of our ecstasy, into the deepest desires of our souls. To let the fire that burns between us consume us both. But there are dark places within Damien that not even our wildest passion can touch. I yearn to know his secrets, yearn for him to surrender to me as I have surrendered to him. But our troubled pasts will either bind us close . . . or shatter us completely.
COMPLETE ME… Our desire runs deep. But our secrets cut close. Beautiful, strong, and commanding, Damien Stark fills a void in me that no other man can touch. His fierce cravings push me beyond the brink of bliss—and unleash a wild passion that utterly consumes us both. Yet beneath his need for dominance, he carries the wounds of a painful past. Haunted by a legacy of dark secrets and broken trust, he seeks release in our shared ecstasy, the heat between us burning stronger each day. Our attraction is undeniable, our obsession inevitable. Yet not even Damien can run from his ghosts, or shield us from the dangers yet to come.

The Koffee Crowd Review
Loved Stupid Girl so much.  NorthEast Boston boy meets SouthWest sassy Texan girl and a lot of smiling and crying. The book is mainly told from Olivia's point of view with very few chapters from Brax's pov. I love it when books include their male lead's pov beacuse it allows the reader to have a full grasp on the characters and their personal story. 
The story starts a year in the past, with a traumatic event in Olivia's life. Immediately after, we fast forward to present day, when Olivia is about to start college. That one event shapes so much of who Olivia is. Brax runs into Olivia on the move in day of college and tries very hard to catch her name. Brax is a hot with his Boston accent and the way he cares for and is protective of Olivia what's not to love about this guy. I fell in love their banter, their texts, and just how honest and real they are with each other.

Great story, great writer and I can't wait to read Vol 2. Stupid Boy

Every Soul (review)

Posted on

Every Soul 
By: LK. Collins

When you lose the one person who grounds your existence, your whole world changes. In life, it is said that everything happens for a reason. If that’s true, how can you explain death? Especially when it happens to someone so    young, so beautiful, and so innocent? My name is Bain Adams, and I struggle with these thoughts every day. I’ve been through hell and back, somehow surviving the unimaginable. My sister took her life six months ago, and now, what’s left is a shell of the man I once was, a shadow of the person I used to be. Do I miss that life? Absolutely. But I miss her more, every day. I pray time will ease the pain and help my suffering while I search for the answers…but so far, nothing. Happiness is something I knew so long ago, and now it’s nothing but a faint, distant recollection of the life I once had. My name is Arion LaSalle, and seven months ago my life was shredded to pieces when my fiancee disappeared while deployed. He never came home, burning a hindrance of pain and agony within my soul. For so long, I lived my life believing everything happens for a reason, until now. 
*This book is an Erotic Romance novel. It is not intended for those under 18 years of age.*

Our Review

First and foremost I will say that this book cover had me at HELLLOOO!!! Holy muscles cake! It's so hot it deserves all 5+ steaming koffees. 
Every Soul is about the loss of a loved one and how they cope with that loss in different ways.
Bain pops pills and loss his ambition to play for the NBA due to the loss of his sister. Arion uses no strings attached sex as a way to keep her heart protected from losing everyone close to her including the loss of her fiance. I did enjoy the different POV's including Bain's sister Kinsey and the days leading up to her death. Moreover, I felt that the sex scenes overshadowed the story whenever Bain's or Arion's pov's was getting more interesting. I know the author adds a lot of erotic scenes to her books which is great, I guess I just wanted more out of the characters other than the hot stuff. The book does end with an unbelievable WTF CLIFFHANGER. When I finished the book I was stunned into silence then felt like throwing my kindle across my bedroom. REALLY?!? I despise cliffhangers! With many books you can tell when a sequel is inevitable but with this book it completely got me. The last page of the epilogue, really? Ah!!

Ignoring the fact that is book left me hanging I did enjoy the story and it's characters and rate this book 3.5 stars. I'm desperately waiting until 2015 for Every Soul's sequel EVERY HEART.
