Untamed (Unbeautiful #2) by Jessica Sorensen: Release Blitz w/ Excerpt & Giveaway


No matter how hard I try, I never seem to be able to escape my family’s world. Their madness controls my life, just like insanity consumes my mind.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s real.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell who I really am. The person everyone sees? Or the one I keep trapped inside?
I wonder which person Ryler sees. Just like I wonder who I can trust.
Wonder. Wonder. Wonder.
I wonder too much.
I wish I could just find a way to escape it all and finally be free.

I live a double life and sometimes I hate myself for it. Watching Emery fall apart—pretending I don’t care—is killing me inside.
I want to tell her the truth, but I also want a new life.
Want. Want. Want.
I want too much. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what I really desire.
I wish I could be free from the confusion, free from this life.

“If you want to dance, dance. There’s no judgment at these things, which makes them pretty awesome.”

She smiles, and then threads her fingers through mine. “Okay, let’s dance, then.”

I don’t bother mentioning that dancing can be extremely sexy when done under the right circumstances—circumstances that usually include alcohol and sexual tension.

At first, Emery is cautious, keeping her distance from me as she rocks her hips to the music. I move with her. I’ve never really been into dancing, but I can rock out to a little garage rock any day. The longer the song goes on, the more into it she gets, until she finally spins around and presses her back against my chest. That’s when the two of us decide to start playing a dangerous game of Want But Can’t Have. A very, very dangerous game that is really fucking tortuous to play yet impossible to give up.

Emery starts grinding her hips to the sultry beat of the song. With each movement, her ass brushes against my cock, making me go rock hard. I grip the curves of her hips and my hands unnecessarily slip underneath the bottom of her shirt. My fingers delve into her soft flesh, and I bite back a moan. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve forgotten just how soft her skin is, how amazing she smells, how incredible she feels against me.

She shivers from my touch and presses closer, rolling her hips and driving my body absolutely mad. She repeats the movement over and over again, until finally, I damn near lose my mind.Gripping her waist, I spin her around to face me. “I thought you didn’t know how to dance?”

About the Author:

Thank you for your interest in my books! I'm Tessa and I live in the crazy, loud, overcrowded borough of Brooklyn, New York. I love it here. This city is a constant source of inspiration, which is why I've decided to set my most recent books in the Line of Duty Series here.

I moved to New York when I was eighteen, the day after I graduated high school. Threw my suitcase in the back of a Chevrolet Cavalier and drove across the country to find my adventure. I'm still finding it, little by little.

Thank you for being a part of it.

A Stone in the Sea (Bleeding Hearts #1) by A.L. Jackson: Blog Tour Review & Giveaway


He wanted nothing at all…

Until he found she had everything to give…

Sunder lead singer and guitarist Sebastian Stone has everything—fans, fame, and fortune. He also has a heart full of bitterness and a reputation for a short-fused temper. But an outward reputation rarely reveals the true man inside. Facing assault charges after trying to protect his younger brother, Sebastian is sent to Savannah, Georgia to lie low until the dust settles in L.A.

Shea Bentley is beautiful, kind, and hiding from the very lifestyle Sebastian has always embraced.

When the mysterious, tattooed stranger begins hanging out at the bar where she works, Shea is quick to recognize he is nothing but trouble, but she's helpless to the way her body lights up every time his intense gray eyes tangle with hers.

They both soon find themselves drowning in a sea of desire and passion that won’t let them up for air.

Sebastian knows firsthand secrets never die, and he’s not the only one who’s hiding them.

Loving someone always comes with a price. But will it be Shea’s past that costs them everything?

Review by Michelle:

A.L. Jackson is one of those authors that I add to my TBR at the mere announcement of a new book, long before reading a blurb, and usually months before a release date. Once the synopsis for A Stone in the Sea was revealed and I found out that Sebastian Stone is a bit of a bad boy rocker, well it was like she was writing this one just for me.

Always a masterful storyteller and a true weaver of words, A.L Jackson is a wordsmith that creates some of the most beautiful and poetic narratives. Her descriptions are amazingly powerful and expressive without being inundated by details, her stories impeccably paced and so engrossing you are instantly hooked, and her characters are always so perfectly flawed they are real, alluring, and immensely captivating.

A Stone in the Sea is definitely this author's hottest book yet. I always look to an A.L. Jackson book for intense emotion and a beautiful love story. This one also delivers on these fronts, but the steam this time around is just as potent. The chemistry between Shea and Baz is out of control. Usually the sexual tension grows as a couple gets acquainted with each other and they become more bold with their words and actions leading to a passionate buildup and some sexual frustration. In this case the attraction is so electric it crackles from across the room with just one look, one word, or even one gesture and despite the two continuing to be virtual strangers for a large part of the story with merely a few brief encounters, the longing increases exponentially and continues to simmer and swell until it can no longer be contained. Once this desire moves into the bedroom, the steam is almost too hot to handle. The explosive attraction and undeniable longing culminates in savage lust, heady connection, and blazing intensity. Have a fan handy and beware of the potential for some serious overheating.

A.L. Jackson knows just how to draw you in and keep you clamoring for more with an air of mystery so thick it is like a dense fog that only slightly gradually lifts with each tidbit shared along the way. Baz's past increasingly coalesces, slowly piecing together the puzzle of this enigmatic, misunderstood man. Shea obviously has her own secrets but it is easy to get wrapped up in Baz's magnitude of issues making for quite the slap in the face when these secrets finally come to light.

Not only is the story absorbing and engaging, but a completely unforeseen and shocking twist will completely rock you and leave you antsy for more. Just when complications and reservations are overcome and things are looking up, just when you think there is nothing left in Baz's life that can keep these two apart, Shea's past comes back to haunt them both, a past with consequences that can very easily and unexpectedly ruin them. This twist leaves you on the edge and tied up in knots. Luckily the next book is planned for release in just a few short months, just be prepared to be on the hook, anxiously awaiting, and maybe even doing a little author stalking until June.

A Stone in the Sea is powerful, emotional, angsty, sweet, and incredibly passionate. The next book, Drowning to Breathe is, of course, already on my to be read list, but after the end of this one, it has been pushed to the top.

Rating: 4.5 Stars
