Blurb

The final installment of Unleashed. Bombs will be dropped.

Declan

I don't let things slip through my fingers. I clutch them to me fast and never let go. The more I desire something, the harder I drive to get it. I fight for what I want, and what I want is Kara Brooks.

She wants to run away. I don’t blame her. It’s probably the smart thing to do.

She can run, but she can’t hide.

I don’t know how this is all going to end. But I do know that sh*t is about to go down. And when it goes down, it’s going to go down big.

Kara

I've let him break my heart. Twice. The first time I was 18. Back then, I could blame him. I was just a kid and he played games with my heart.

Now, I have no one to blame but myself. Sometimes I think that's what hurts the most. Other times, I know that's not the worst. The worst pain of all comes from his betrayal.

I have to move on. I need to focus on getting my life back on track, setting out far, far away from Declan Hunt. During the daylight hours, I know I have plenty to keep me busy.

It’s the nights I’m worried about. How am I going to make it through all those long, dark hours when the memories of our scorching hot nights together are so close I can practically taste them? Every time I close my eyes, it’s his face I see, his fingers I feel, his heat making me quiver and moan. I should hate it, resent the power he still wields over me. Instead, I never want it to end.

NOTE: Unleashed is a four-volume story launching the Beg for It series about the hot, alpha males in Declan's family and the battles they wage with the strong, sexy women who make them finally meet their match.

Excerpt

“Can I ask you a question?” she says as she leans back in the seat.

I take her free hand and entwine it with mine. Placing both of our hands in my lap, I nod.

“You can ask me anything.”

She takes a deep breath as if she is suddenly nervous. “How do you do it? How do you love me knowing everything you do?”

She still doesn’t get it.

I stare at her for a moment before taking her glass out of her hand. I place both glasses in the little slots that were made for them and turn to her. “Come here,” I whisper. She slides toward me and I pull her onto my lap so she is straddling me. I wrap my arms around her waist and breathe her in for a moment. “What makes you love your parents, Ned?” I ask calmly. She looks puzzled and shakes her head.

“I don’t know,” she says shrugging her shoulders. “It comes naturally, I don’t have a reason … I just love them, I always have I guess.”

“That’s exactly the way I feel about you. I can’t explain the reason that I love you. It’s like asking me why I breathe … I do it to survive.”

She’s silent. Then she nods her head.

“I get it,” she whispers. “I just needed to know if you felt it too or whether I was going crazy.”

“You’re definitely going crazy, you’re just not going crazy by yourself,” I chuckle. She laughs.

“Well, misery loves company so why shouldn’t crazy,” she teases.

“Exactly.”

“Doesn’t it scare you?” she asks seriously.

“What?”

“Knowing it’s all going to come to an end,” she says sadly.

“It terrifies me,” I say honestly. “I hate that I never found you sooner but I’d hate it if I never found you at all.”

“Yeah,” she breathes.

“Are you scared?” I ask.

“Yes, not of dying but of knowing that I’ll never feel anything like this again.”

“That’s ridiculous,” I scoff.

“What?” she asks in confusion.

“Babe, do you honestly think that when I get to heaven I’m not coming to find you — well after I thank the big guy for letting me in of course. But after that, your ass better be prepared to spend an eternity with me because if I’m going to live forever then I’m going to spend every day of it seeing that smile.”

She kisses me. I love it when she kisses me first. I am so in love I should have my balls cut off.

SYNOPSIS

I thought I could continue to ignore the… talents my friends and the love of my life possess. I couldn’t. It all became too much when we moved to the compound and they were able to use them freely. I wasn’t able to handle it and now I’m on my own. The gate to Hell has been opened and demons have invaded the earth. Luckily, the portal to the underworld is small and considering the population, few have stepped foot on earth’s soil. The demons are after what I have but I can’t let them take him. He's all I have left. Ryan is gone. She left me. Said it was too much. She couldn’t handle all of the strange things or the nightly battles against the demons. She needed out and I let her go. Or so she thinks. I sent my best man to keep an eye on her and keep her safe. She holds the very thing I love most and I won’t let the demons have them. I would fight the Devil himself to keep her in my arms and I am determined to win.

Review of Dolce (Love at Center Court #2) by Rachel Blaufeld


“Who just stole my thunder across the Hafton airwaves, you ask? Right now, right this very second, listeners, I have Hafton’s one-and-only, the main man with the ball in hand, Blane Steele is in the studio. Mark my words—he’ll not only steal the ball, but your lady’s heart too. Watch out, gentlemen, the Stealer is in the house!”
— Sonny Be Knocking Boots, Hafton Radio 96.9

Coed antics.
Chaos.
Angst-ridden twists in fate.

Caterina is an intern. Sonny is her shock-jock boss. And Blane is a good-hearted baller…except when he steps on the court. Between on-air dares, an evil feminist professor, a straight-shooter of a coach, and rumors from the league surrounding Steele, these three are destined to screw it all up.

Rather than a love triangle, this is a friends-to-lovers story where the disc jockey acts as the catalyst, and a basketball player finds his life transformed when center court intersects with love.
 






Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
What do you get when you mix a Southern basketball player and a spitfire Jersey girl together?  Rachel Blaufeld’s newest release, Dolce, Love at Center Court book 2.  As with her first book in this series, Vérité, we are thrown into the world of Hafton College life, with a hottie athlete and a feminist who steals his heart.  This is Blane and Caterina’s story.
Blane “The Stealer” is a Florida boy and NBA hopeful attending college in Ohio.  He’s one of the best on his team and plays hard on and off the court. After an interview gone bad with Hafton’s infamous shock jock, Blane’s world is thrown upside down by a dare.  But this gives him time to reflect and get his head in the game to hopefully win the last championship game of his college career. Although Blane has been dubbed a player with the ladies, he’s more than that.  He’s developed into an alpha male that knows what he wants and stops at nothing to get it.  When he meets the timid yet foul mouthed Caterina, Blane begins to want more, and feel more than he thought possible.
Caterina is a Jersey girl, half Italian, half Cuban.  Short in stature but over abundance in her personality.  Growing up Catie never felt like she was pretty, her self-esteem was void thanks to her mother and sisters.  She’s attending Hafton State University as a women’s studies major.  Not on the extreme side of feminism, just wanting to give a voice to all women no matter their status or job in society.  Deeply ensconced in her goals, she meets a guy who changes her perception of herself and her life.  Always sharing her father’s love of sports, Catie loves basketball and secretly has an obsession with the Fighting Green team.  Her character is beautifully scripted from a woman of choice to a woman in need.  A burning need that develops into a true fate type romance.
I loved this book!  Everything that Rachel Blaufeld writes is intense and meaningful.  The bold take on perceptions and stereotypes is evident in most everything she has written.  With that, Dolce is once again a good hearted, love story with a side of angst.  I felt the plight of the characters as the plot thickens.  Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, I would recommend reading the first book as well.  As always, this is an excellent addition to my library!  Well played Rachel!

#1 - LILY “I wonder what would happen if you lost your ability to shield.” That simple question from Lily’s best friend, Sandra, almost got them killed. As Lily Morgan drove them to school for their band practice in her Mini Cooper, it took all of her limited driving skills to keep them on the narrow suburban road and not in the ditch. “Let’s not ever mention this again!” Lily’s heart raced at the thought of it. Sandra Jones was the best friend anybody could dream of. She was also everything Lily was not. She was outgoing, tall, and beautiful with her long, straight blond hair and blue eyes. She always wore the nicest outfits, and guys regularly asked her out on dates. She could have been part of the popular crowd had she wanted to, but she was perfectly content being in the marching band, just like Lily. Sandra and her family, in addition to Lily’s uncle, Charlie, were the only people alive who knew what Lily could do; she had the ability to feel the emotions of the people around her. The only way for her to function and have a close to normal life was to build mental shields, which prevented the barrage of emotions from continuously assaulting her. Sandra knew how important shielding was to Lily, particularly in an emotion-infested place like high school. “Just saying. I mean, you’ve been giving me the silent treatment since we left home. I had to find a way to make you talk.” “Well, that’s not a good subject on a good day.” “Then, what’s eating you?” “My mother, again.” “I don’t understand. Why don’t you take Charlie’s offer and move in with him?” “It’s my house, Sandra. If anything, she should be the one moving out.” “Not going to happen, not until the courts kick her out. You know that better than I do. She’s not going anywhere.” Her friend was right, unfortunately. “Can we move on to something else?” “What did she want this time?” Sandra asked instead. “Another party to introduce you to your future husband?” Lily nodded. She could easily imagine Sandra rolling her eyes, and if she hadn’t been driving, she was sure she would have seen her do exactly that. “I don’t get it,” Sandra continued. “She’s not even your real mother.” “I don’t get it either. Why does she keep throwing me at those guys?” “Beats me,” Sandra said. “Did you say no?” Lily remained quiet. She never said no. She still held the hope that if she did exactly what her mother requested, maybe one day she would approve of her. Hope definitely made people stupid. “When will you, Lily?” Sandra asked, turning toward her. “You deserve better than this.” Lily sighed. She had tried to explain it numerous times before, but Sandra never understood. After all, Sandra’s mother loved her and was always so proud of her. “David said football practice starts today,” Sandra said, changing the subject. Lily felt her best friend’s eagerness at sharing the news, and she knew what was coming next. “Malakai will be there.” Ever since she had admitted to Sandra that she liked the star wide receiver over a year ago, Sandra brought him up every chance she had. “Why don’t we talk about your love life for a change?” Lily suggested. “Oh, no, we’re so not. Yours is so much more fun.” It was Lily’s turn to roll her eyes. “So, what else did David say?” “They should begin practice around nine this morning.” “They have it so much easier than we do,” Lily said, turning onto the access road that led behind the school. “You got that one right. If they practiced half as much as we did, they would wear paths in the football field.” “That’s probably why we practice on hot, steamy asphalt,” Lily said as they arrived in the parking area. “It sucks, really. Why don’t we get to practice their amount of hours and they, ours?” “Because what we do is more complicated?” Lily suggested with a smile. Sandra shrugged and glanced out the window. “Look at it on the bright side.” “There is one?” Sandra asked, irony coating her tone. “No!” They were both laughing when Lily pulled into her usual parking spot.

"A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks."
-Richard Bach

I'd known my soulmate, my best friend, my sister, forever. No span of distance nor time would ever change that. Even as I trudged through my colourless life. Loneliness and isolation snapping at my heels. I always had her as my North Star.

Now I know I’m going to lose her—my soulmate—and I have to learn to lean on the only man I’ve ever loved. The one who pushed me away… just to survive.
The life I once dreamed about has been washed away in a sea of regret. People from my past are appearing in my present, hoping to remain in my future. Each day I draw strength from my history.

I have to learn to live again, to have hope again and to love again.
She wants me to trust him. He wants another chance. I just want the strength to move on with my new life.

All I have to do now is take my hands off the safety bars... and have a little faith.

Delta: Revenge by @CristinHarber is releasing April 26th

★.•**•.★DELTA: REVENGE★.•**•.★


A Tortured Hero with a Heart of Gold
Growing up on the streets of Rio de Janeiro, Javier Almeida has only his older sister to protect him. When she’s sold to a human-trafficker, he vows to hunt down those responsible.
Years later, Titan Group’s Delta team finds him, tattooed and brawling, a vigilante protector with information they want. They take him in and train him, working him harder than a man should be driven, until he’s a soldier harboring an obsession. Ready for revenge, Javier ghosts his way across the globe, tracking the men who took his sister and working elite private security jobs.
Meets Sweet and Sassy
Jilted at the altar, Sophia Cole turns the reception into a one-woman party. She’s intent on devouring all the cake and champagne, so she can bask in the calories she’s been avoiding. In the midst of the revelry, he walks in, the one man she can never ignore.
Javier is her older brother’s black ops teammate—an automatic Do Not Go There. But if there’s one thing better than fondant and a buzz to ease the wounds of a cheating fiancé, it might be a one-night stand with a South American military man.
Game Changer
Javier didn’t expect to see Sophia again. He never thought he would even wantto see her again. He shouldn’t have touched her, but his mind won’t stay away from her.
Now, Sophia Cole is thousands of miles away from the safety of her parents’ lavish estate and working alongside him in hell. She’s a staffer at an Embassy, and he’s there to keep them alive. There are bombs and bullets and blood-hungry enemies.
And then she’s taken. Gone. Just like his sister. But so much worse.
