Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE

Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.


EXCERPT

Bane

Then.

A liar.

A con.

A godless thief.

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine.

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win.

Move the rooks around.

Change the queen when necessary.

Guard the king at all fucking times.

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous.

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once.

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath.

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall.

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking.

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery.

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief.

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar.

I had all the ingredients to pull her in.

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel.

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her.

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow.

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You

Pushkin.

I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under.

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me.

“What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us.

“Doesn’t matter, bro.”

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw.

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.”

“I will not repeat myself a third time.”

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on.

“Jesse Carter.”

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me.

Before I even knew her.

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood.

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before.

Before she became business.

Before the truth caged her in.

Before the secrets gushed out.

I never did get to surf that day.

My surfboard broke.

Should have known it was an omen.

My heart was going to be next in line.

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.

Dragon School: First Flight (Dragon School #1) by Sarah K.L. Wilson Book Review

Hello, Bookworms,

I have been reading scary books and very depressing book lately and I thought to myself I need a break my friends and this book came up in search and I was like why not, very rare you could go wrong with dragons!


This book surprised me at how good it was.

First of all, I would like to say finally a female lead that is not perfect!
I was sick of all the female character I read to be these beautiful creatures with all the powers and be awesome at everything. So when I got introduced to Amel( character lead) I was pumped because she had a big disadvantage going into dragon school one of her legs wasn't working and riding a dragon you need both! Because of that, I was so intrigued how the story would go! Like obviously the dragons were awesome because each color had their own meaning and the whole situation was hectic... I am writing this review after reading the four books so more coming this way. I don't want to say too much because ruining the book is no fun.…

The Bourbon Kings (The Bourbon Kings #1) by J.R. Ward

This is a different J. R. WARD I got used the world of the black dagger brotherhood and suddenly I read a book that is so different that is refreshing. If you like soap operas then YES PLEASE READ THIS! ( YES I AM YELLING)  it was that good. I am a fan of drama series and generally without drama life is boring! of course, this book doesn't disappoint. We have a few different points of view and for some might be distressing Ward excelled it in it. It didn't feel tiresome and put a new dimension into the story. 
I mean this book is a new Dynasty but better! Oh, the drama! and the story is so interesting. I got so attached to this story that I felt sad and angry and all the feels. 
It is a very different story from her fantasy novels but worth to venture into that territory if you love drama, love, and richness with great compelling characters. 
here is the book, book-gang  The Bourbon Kings

Single Dad's Cabin: A Mountain Man Romance by Lara Swann Book Review

Hello Bookworms,  I don't want to claim myself as a romantic excerpt but I read enough books to say that I know what I am talking about.  I was tricked by a newsletter and I bought this book. They tempted me and I couldn't resist. I went thinking it would be a new adult but it was a romance. 
Fist of all the burning question did I like it?
Yes.
It was actually good. I did like the way it was set and how the story progressed. It was a slow burning book for the first half and then picked up the pace, of course, you can't have a romance novel without the drama as well. The drama was there, ladies or gents and it was spicy. 
Well, I do recommend this book and for those that are asking did it have spicy scenes?  Just a couple and it was very Kosher so you would get more of a romance novel.
I have some questions for you guys it would be awesome if you answered them it will help me advance here and give you something more  The questions
