Summer reading by Emilia Mancini

Summer break has arrived! Whoot! I have lots of plans that I’ll likely never follow through on but, damn it, I’m gonna try! At the top of the list is to get through that TBR pile of some of my new indie author discoveries:

cassieUntil Death Do Us Part by Cassie Leigh  The veil between life and death will part to bring two souls together…

Millie was a lonely spirit with no one but her house to keep her company. That changed the day the handsome new owner of her precious home moved in and said hello. She never thought she would have a chance to fall in love again. Now she is chipping away at her past and turning away from the light she thought she was waiting for. There is just one problem; the love of her afterlife is engaged.

Noah and his fiancé are having trouble sharing a vision for a home to grow their future in. Lucky for him the spirit in residence is on his side. Unlike his fiancé, Millie seems to like the changes and an unlikely connection is kindled. Now he is holding out on the hope that their bond will not burn out before their unlikely romance can ignite.

mickReckless Fear by Micki Fredricks Tight Everly
Sergeant-at-Arms of The Black Vipers M.C.
In the world of The Black Vipers, sin runs free and I’m sin personified.
Given permission by the cut I wear, I take whatever the emptiness inside me desires, by any means necessary.
Unfortunately, the truth sin doesn’t want you to know–nothing is ever free. It takes payment in flesh and degradation.
A highly venomous predator, it slithers around inside of you, wreaking havoc and claiming your soul as its own. 
Sasha was the savior to my sinful ways…only she didn’t want the job. When sin rules your life, there are no boundaries. You take without regret.
She would be my salvation, even if I had to play the Devil to get her.

Being near Tight was like standing on the edge of a raging fire.
The heat dangerously intoxicating, offering protection from the darkness while promising the burn of betrayal if I got too close.
Yet here I stand, staring endlessly into the dancing flames, not noticing the building smoke or the ache of his all-consuming heat.
Unfortunately, I know how this story ends. Burned beyond recognition and discarded, I’m turned to ash without a second thought.
Completely destroyed by him.
There had to be a way to avoid the damage he’d inflict. The problem was, I wasn’t sure I wanted to.
Because with Tight, this kind of burn feels amazing.

graceThe Broken Girl by Gracie Wilson Darkness. Pain. Loss. They are all I seem to know. Every time I get ahead, another secret or event sends me spiraling. Dillon’s attack has left me fighting for the things I hold dear.
Now, I have to be brave and pick up the pieces. Hearts will be shattered and love will be rewritten. Nothing is going as planned but it never has. It’s time to navigate through the chaos that’s plaguing my life and figure out what I want.
Everything I thought I knew is about to be challenged. Truths will be exposed. New threats will be revealed.
Promises will be destroyed and life as I know it is about to be broken…

KJClick. Date. Repeat. by KJ Farnham These days, finding love online is as commonplace as ordering that coveted sweater. But back in 2003, the whole concept of internet dating was still quite new, with a stigma attached to it that meant those who were willing to test the waters faced a fair amount of skepticism from friends and family. 

Such is the case for Chloe Thompson, a restless 20-something tired of the typical dating scene and curious about what she might find inside her parents’ computer. With two serious but failed relationships behind her, Chloe isn’t even entirely sure what she’s looking for. She just knows that whatever it is, she wants to find it. 

Based loosely on author K. J. Farnham’s real-life online dating experiences, Chloe’s foray into online dating involves a head-first dive into a world of matches, ice breakers and the occasional offer of dick pics, all while Chloe strives to shake herself of the ex who just refuses to disappear. Will she simultaneously find herself and “the one” online, or will the ever-growing pile of humorous and downright disastrous dates only prove her friends and family right? There’s only one way to find out… 

Click. Date. Repeat.
