sunset risingSunset Rising by S.M McEachern

February 2024: Desperate to find refuge from the nuclear storm, a group of civilians discover a secret government bio-dome. Greeted by a hail of bullets and told to turn back, the frantic refugees stand their ground and are grudgingly permitted entry. But the price of admission is high.

 

283 years later… Life as a slave in the Pit had never been easy, but for seventeen-year-old Sunny O’Donnell it was quickly careening out of control. Her mother was killed in the annual spring Cull, leaving her alone with a father who decided to give up on life.  It’s not that she blamed him for grieving, but if they didn’t earn enough credits to keep their place inside the Pit, they would be kicked out into a world still teeming with radiation. That left her to earn the credits for both of them.  It didn’t help that her boyfriend, Reyes Crowe, was pressuring her to get married and abandon her father.

 

Sunny didn’t think life could get any worse, until she was forced upstairs to the Dome to serve and entertain the elite at a bachelor party. That’s where she met Leisel Holt, the president’s daughter, and her fiancé, Jack Kenner. Now Sunny and Jack Kenner are wanted for treason. If they catch them, they’ll be executed.

 

She thought Leisel’s betrayal was the end…but it turns out it was just the beginning.

Excerpt:

 

I had decided I didn’t want to give up on my plan to help change things. After all the hardship I had brought on my father and Summer, I owed it to them to try to make things right. I didn’t want to fail.

Jack stood up and went into his T’ai Chi stance. I followed. He began the fluid movements and I tried to keep up, but he seemed to be going a lot faster tonight.

“So you want to start stopping people in the hall and ask them if they want to join the rebellion?” Jack asked, his tone light.

“Well, it sounds stupid when you say it like that.”

“Alright, we’re all warmed up now.” Jack faced me in a defensive stance. “Take your best shot.”

“I don’t feel like it anymore.”

“Come on.” He flicked a hand out at me, stopping inches from my face. “Pretend I’m Reyes. You must be mad at him.”

I threw the heel of my hand toward his face, which he blocked easily. I followed with a roundhouse kick at his stomach. He pushed me away.

“That’s weak, Sunny,” he said. “Come on. The other night you just about ripped my head off when you were mad about Summer.”

I had been really mad about Summer. Even the thought of her now in the clutches of that crazy president was making me angry. He had my father, too. My anger snuck out of the place where I thought I’d had it tucked safely away and gripped me again.

I threw a punch as hard as I could at Jack, then another. He blocked them both, but I kept coming at him. First with my right leg followed swiftly by my left. He threw a right punch at me, but I pulled my head back and he missed. I instinctively knew he was going to follow with his left fist, and I ducked. He missed again. He was smiling at me. I came at him to wipe the smile off his face, but he turned, and I missed. He grabbed me from behind.

“I see the boyfriend isn’t the key to getting you mad. Your best friend is,” he whispered in my ear.

I drove my elbow as hard as I could into his stomach. As soon as I made contact, I heard his breath forced out of him. I realized I might have hit him too hard.

“I’m sorry!” I turned around to see if he was okay. He was bent over, holding his stomach. “Jack, are you hurt?”

“I’ll be fine,” he choked out.

I felt a little helpless watching him struggle to get his breath back. He finally straightened up and gently touched a couple of his ribs.

“Nothing broken.” He limped off to sit in a chair. “Maybe I should have told you the first rule of sparring before I started teaching you. You don’t actually hurt your partner.”

“Sorry. I guess I let my frustrations get the better of me.”

“I don’t suppose there’s a hot shower in here?” he asked, even though he must have known the answer.

“No.” I laughed at the thought. “But I can take you to the common bath.”

He got up from the chair. “Take me.”

I found a couple of towels and a bar of soap in a cupboard. “We only have about forty-five minutes left before lights out. We need to be back by then.”

We left the apartment and headed toward the bathroom. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jack changed his mind when he saw where he had to bathe. It wasn’t anything like the private hot shower in his apartment. When we reached the common bath, I was silently relieved to see that the water had been changed recently. It wasn’t bad at all.

“It’s freezing!” Jack exclaimed when he put his hand in the water. “I’m not getting in there.”

“You don’t actually get in. Soak your towel in the water and wash off that way. You can dry with mine. You go first.” I started toward the door.

“Wait. We’re supposed to be married. Isn’t it going to look weird if we’re taking turns in here?”

“I’m not watching you have a bath. I’m only prepared to take the pretend marriage thing so far.”

He gave me a wry look. “We’ll just turn our backs on each other. It will save time, and we can get back before lights out.”

“I don’t know. It seems a little…intimate.” But there was a guard on duty within view of the bathroom, and he might wonder why we were taking turns.

“I promise I won’t peek,” Jack said, but I wasn’t convinced. “Hey, I’m taking a big risk here, too. You know how many girls would love to see the Jack Kenner naked?”

That made me smile. A week ago, that was probably true. “I can’t believe I’m going to do this. Turn around.”

We both turned our backs on each other. I stripped as fast as I could so I wouldn’t have time to change my mind. I heard his clothes drop to the floor. An image of my hands on his naked chest came back to me, and a feeling of excitement began to grow in the pit of my stomach. If I turned around right now we would both be naked and only inches apart. A warm sensation spread through me at the thought, and my chest tightened, making it difficult to breathe. I wanted to banish the thoughts from my mind. I didn’t want to think of Jack in that way.

I dunked one of the towels into the water and scrubbed my arms. The water was freezing and made me shiver, but at least now I could blame my heavy breathing on that. And I was grateful it was helping to douse the heat that seemed to be consuming me. When I was done, I rinsed the towel and stuck it out behind my back to pass it to him.

“That was quick,” he said. I heard the water splashing behind me then Jack sucked his breath in. “Oh my god, it’s cold!”

I dried off, put on my clothes and waited for him to finish and get dressed before I knelt down to wash my hair.

“Not so bad,” Jack said, but I could tell he was lying.

He dipped his head in the water, ran the bar of soap through his hair, and then rinsed. I was still working on my long hair. A lot of coal was coming out, darkening the water and I felt a little guilty considering it had just been changed.

I wrapped the towel around my head to hide my red hair until I could reapply the coal. “We better get back before lights out,” I said.

Jack opened the door for me. “Even though it was freezing, it feels good to be clean,” he said.

“I like the cold. It’s refreshing.” Maybe I would have to have a bath every night if my body was going to continue to respond to Jack like that, I thought.

Back at our apartment, I busied myself hanging up the towels and brushing out my wet hair. I was feeling a little vulnerable without the coal, but knew I would have to wait until my hair dried before I could reapply it. The lights would go out any minute now. I put the brush away and turned around to find Jack flopped in a chair observing me.

“What?” I asked.

“Nothing.” He looked away. But there was something about the way he was looking at me…

“Did you peek?” I asked.

“Sunny,” Jack shook his head, but a smile tugged at the corners of his mouth and his cheeks turned pink. “Of course I peeked. I’m a guy.”

Synopsis: 

Don’t let my petite and innocent appearance fool you, because I’m one person you don’t want to cross. I’m Micah, the youngest member of Resurrection…If only they knew how young. My fake ID says I’m twenty-one.

And I will be…in four years.

What can I say? I blossomed early. Home sucked, so I left, determined to do something with my life.

Landing the gig as lead vocalist in the band was a dream come true. I’ve worked hard to make something of myself and nothing is going to ruin that for me.

Then He showed up.

He’s hot as hell and so into me. But he’s also twenty-five.

I don’t want to lie to him, but if the truth comes out I’ll lose everything, including him.

Here’s a little tease for you 🙂

He reached into his pocket and pulled out his iPod. “Put on some music if you like.”

I took it, letting my fingers glide over his. His eyes darted toward me briefly and my heart jumped. I quickly looked down, busying myself with his music collection. I ran through artists until I came across Severed. Smiling, I clicked play.

“You have your own music in here,” I said with a giggle.

He shrugged. “If I don’t appreciate it, then why should I expect anyone else to?”

“I guess. I just think it’s cute. Like an actor going to see themselves at the cinema.”

“You don’t think Nic Cage or Brad Pitt go to the movies?” he asked in mock horror.

“I don’t know. I met Brad Pitt once in Starbucks.”

He chuckled. “I can just imagine how that went down.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” I asked, narrowing my eyes.

“Well, you were kind of freaked out when you realized who I was. Meeting someone actually famous? You’d lose the plot,” he laughed.

“Well, in my defense, I didn’t have posters of Brad Pitt all over my walls—” I shut my mouth, but it was too late. No, no, no…

“You had posters of me on your walls?” he repeated, amused. “Micah, that is adorable.”

“Shut up,” I mumbled, coving my face with my hands. He chuckled loudly next to me, clearly not ready to let this go. “No! No laughing. Just shut up and drive.”

Synopsis: When it comes to hand-to-heart combat, no hold is barred.

A Day of Pleasure, Book 2

Molly Ryan survived one attack, and she’s not about to be a sitting duck for another. With her attacker harassing her from his jail cell, she packs up her life in Chicago, follows her Delta Force brother to North Carolina and gets work in a pub.

Men in uniform are definitely off her menu, but her boss’s friend, Army Ranger Callum Eversman, is one hot hunk she’d like to sample.

Home on a two-week furlough, Cal has agreed to watch over Molly as a favor to fellow Ranger Noah Harper. Accomplishing his mission without her noticing? That’s going to be tough, as any idiot can see their sparks of attraction from a mile away.

Despite her hands-off-military-men policy, Molly is tempted to indulge, just this once, in a no-strings-attached fling. No dating, no kissy face, no hearts involved. But when her past threatens her future, there’s only one man to turn to. The one who’ll risk everything—body, heart, and soul—to protect her.

Warning: Contains an Army Ranger with a gruff exterior and heart of gold, a heroine with a sassy attitude, and some hot borderline-public sex.

Book Playlist

Cora Cade

Every moment in life has a soundtrack.  That first summer you had a license and your own car.  The summer my husband I bought our house.  The long nights I used to drive the four hours to and from our locations while we were dating long distance.  That first road trip with your best friend.  And all the other ones that followed.

All of the very best (and not so great) moments of my life can be associated with a specific song, artist, or album.  And writing a book is no exception.   So, because I believe in sharing the joys of musical inspiration, I put together a mix tape of music that represents my second release TWO IN THE AFTERNOON, book two in the A Day of Pleasure series.  A story about a heroine too bull-headed to ask for help and an Army Ranger incapable of not offering it, can only be symbolized with the following:

  • The Fear- Ben Howard
  • Shake it Out- Florence + The Machine
  • Wait for Me- Kings of Leon
  • All of Me (cover)- Jason Chen and Madilyn Bailey
  • Falling for You- The 1975
  • Best Day of My Life- American Authors
  • Everything has Changed- Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift
  • Never Stop- Safety Suit
  • Safe with Me- Sam Smith
  • Boom Clap- Charli XCX

Cal, our Ranger, is perfectly summed up by King of Leon’s  ‘Wait for Me’.  That song always makes me all swoony and it’s still got that rock edge that Cal would want.   And our heroine Molly has some demons she needs to exorcize.  Florence + The Machine’s ‘Shake it Out’ is all about facing your past and moving on, which is perfect for our feisty Molly.

While I was working on TWO IN THE AFTERNOON I used Ben Howard’s ‘The Fear’ as the book inspiration.  I may or may not be a crazed Ben Howard fan (I’ll let you draw your own conclusions on that one), and I listened to his debut album on repeat for months while working on this book.   And this song is one that resonates with me personally, but also holds a great message for the overall tone of the book.  

If you’d like to check out the entirety of the mix tape, you can listen to it on Spotify:  http://tinyurl.com/q85s6lc

Review: Dark Sight

This is the cover :O

Title: Dark Sight

Author: Christopher Allan Poe

Published: April 16th 2014 by Black Opal Books

Blurb:

As the only black student at an all-white school, Monique Robinson has always had to prove herself. When her best friend, Victoria is left brain dead, Monique fights to bring her back. But she soon realizes that blurring the lines between life and death has its own price. Can Monique save her best friend before she heads down a path from which no one will return?

From the beginning of this book, I was seriously captivated and couldn’t take my eyes off of the pages of this book, that’s how good the suspense, and wording of this story was. From page one, to the very end, I had tuned out all noise, and the beautiful nature calling out my name outside just to finish this book, and right now I just did and I cant believe what I read.

Honestly, when I started to read this book I was a little worried and nervous at first. I thought that according to the blurb, this was going to be one of the racism/history stories. But, that was not the case with this book AT ALL…

Instead of being like that, this book was a paranormal, horror, nail biting, edge-of-the-seat, type book.

All the characters are not as they seem…

First I’ll start off with Monique:

She is our book heroine; she is strong minded, selfless, focuses on point at hand, and sometimes you don’t even notice that she is 15 years old! If anything she’s 18! She has a job, helps her dad pay the bills, and drives 😀 (with a permit 🙂 )

Victoria:

She is our book heroines best friend; everything with her was as normal as normal can be. Until she and Monique had the biggest fight of their lives and the next thing Monique knew, Victoria was run over by a car and brain damaged (that’s what the doctors say). But, she ended up being a soul sucking machine! Before, she acted as if she was brain damaged, but then when Victoria found out Monique was with her all along, she felt better and turned out blind. Until a couple of days later Victoria started getting weirder. Every time she touched a person, she “fed” off of them, which really means  she was feeding off of their soul and personality, causing her to act the same way as the person she fed from. So, she had to stay away from bad people or she would turn bad.

Those are the main characters in this book.

**SPOILERS!!! (DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU HAVENT READ BOOK)**

So really, Victoria ends up dying a quick death when she doesn’t feed off of anybody anymore, but she dies as herself, not the thing inside her doing all of the cruel things she has done in her past. Monique ends up with Ethan (a boy who helps her out with Victoria and all of the problems that happen in this book, he doesn’t really show up a lot), and Monique moves with her dad right after she buries Victoria’s body, moving away from the people, school, and issues that were there.

All I know from this book was that it was creepy, freaky, and unexpecting, but it was so gooood!!! Especially when you read it in the dark with only a little light on to actually set the mood of the book xD (It wouldn’t be good to read it on a sunny day at the beach though :P)

So if you want a scare, suspenseful book, try this author out! He is worth to read!!! 😉

Title: Touching the Surface

Author: Kimberly Sabatini

Published: October 30, 2012

When Elliot finds herself dead for the third time, she knows she must have messed up, big-time. She doesn’t remember how she landed in the afterlife again, but she knows this is her last chance to get things right. Elliot just wants to move on, but first she will be forced to face her past and delve into the painful memories she’d rather keep buried. Memories of people she’s hurt, people she’s betrayed and people she’s killed.

As she pieces together the secrets and mistakes of her past, Elliot must find a way to earn the forgiveness of the person she’s hurt most, and reveal the truth about herself to the two boys she loves, even if it means losing them both forever.

This one was really an emotional one…

This book brings out tears, cheers, frustration, and sometimes even you want to throw the book around a bit. (That’s what happened to me)

In the beginning half of the book, I wasn’t as captivated and interested in this book as I was once I passed the middle of the book.

What happens in the beginning, is that we have this girl named Elliot.
And we have a world, where there is life after life. Elliot has died three times. And supposedly that makes you special? I never really found out what that means once you have become a “Third Timer” in this book, the author never explained it. But you do get a helper called a “Passenger”.

Anyway, in the beginning we go trough Elliot’s memories, and you find out that she killed somebody in a car crash, because she didn’t look up from her beeping phone in time to dodge the car that was about to hit her. and get this, the person she hit is her “helper”, and he trusts her more than his own brother, go figure right?
So, we find that out, and as soon as Elliot dies, we have this boy named Trevor, and he pops in right after her, supposedly he finds out that she killed his brother in the car crash (his names Oliver), and he really hates her, but the irony of it, is that they had once been lovers because they both had shared the similar pain; Elliot killing his brother, and Trevor for losing his brother. So that eventually brought out a lot of feels 🙂

Throughout this story we go through a lot of memories, emotions, you literally go to heaven and hell in this one xD, and a lot of secrets will be spilled, testing out friendships, and trust 🙂

Then in the end, of course everything turns out alright, there’s some kissing ❤ (I wont tell you with whoooooo xD), and of course they go back to the living world right at the end, leaving you making up your own ending 😉

So overall, this was a sweet, and emotional story, I almost cried, and I never cry in books, you can give me the saddest book ever written, and I will not cry, believe me I have tried. And sadly, this isn’t a series 😦 And the only book this author has ever written. So, oh well.
                                       

Review: Fahrenheit 451

This is the cover… O.O

Title: Fahrenheit 451

Author: Ray Bradbury

Published: March 28th 2013 by Voyager

The terrifyingly prophetic novel of a post-literate future.

6377676

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books.


Bradbury’s powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which, decades on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.

This book was just wow…

Annoyed

This is exactly why I don’t read Classics, unless I am being forced to.
And I’m being totally serious.

At first this book was good, and I was instantly captivated with the story, but of course it was frustrating because of the plot I mean burning down books????? What kind of a world is that?! For that I wouldn’t even be able to live because books are my life!

755975

Anyway, when I got around the middle, I was applauding and bouncing off of my chair because Guy finally got his sense back!!! I mean how is that not worth celebrating??

3138137

Guy starts off in this story a total jackbutt, because he burned down peoples hopes and dreams, was always a rule follower, never questioned his actions or job, and was a goody-too-shoes 😛
But then, at around the middle (the celebration) he starts to question EVERYTHING I mean everything. His job, life, wife, (hah I rhymed xD), friends, knowledge, etc etc…

So, he goes on a mission!!!! And guess what?!
He quits his job, becomes a fugitive, and makes real friends in the process!!! WOOOHOOOOO!!!!

486351

And then POOOOF! It ends. Right when it was getting interesting too. I think my library book was missing pages? But, yeah it ends with Finding a better city 😛

Incredible. Classic books never made sense to me. *sigh* And to think of it I still have to read 1984 xD Double WOOHOOOOOO!!! :p

Oh well, we all have those moments *sigh*.

Author: Pamela Morsi

No More Mr. Nice Guy

Like a bad-choice-making boomerang, Mazy Gulliver has returned to her mom’s tiny house in Brandt Mountain. But this time, she’s got her teenage son, Tru, in tow and no intention of messing up ever again.

Mazy’s so determined to rebuild her life she hardly minds being the new loan collector, or even working for Tad, her ex (and Tru’s dad, which—awkward). She’s not here to make friends—or fall in love.

Sweet, dependable Eli Latham has loved Mazy since they got pretend married in second grade. But after being ignored and/or burned by Mazy for two decades, Eli’s got a new strategy. Mazy likes bad boys, so a bad boy is what he’ll be. How hard can it be to act like a jerk?

Until now, Eli could’ve taken SOB lessons from Tad. But suddenly Tad is playing Mr. Nice Guy. What gives? Not for the first time, men are making Mazy crazy, though she’s determined to do what’s right for her and Tru. But breaking old habits is hard, and if she really wants things to change she’ll have to face her biggest adversary: herself.

    Sweet, romantic, light funny read 🙂

This book is like every other hq romance book…

2 people (MC’s) meet in the past, then about a couple of years later, meet in a small town, the same town (coincidence right?), the girl tries to avoid the guy, but the guy tries to make the girl like him, so they hang out.

Then a situation happens, and they dot speak. Then their friends try to get them back together, and in the end the MCs notice they have chemistry, so they hit the sack together :3, then they confront their love to eachother, get married, have kids, and lived HAPPILY EVER AFTER XD…

I basically told you every single HQ books description known to man kind xD (for romance in that matter 🙂

The reason it being an ok book, is because I basically just skimmed away through the entire book, the plot was the same as every other HQ romance book (atleast from what I’ve read, I could be wrong), aaaaaaaaand hmmmmm, oh yeah, this book I wasn’t into that much, yes it’s a fun, summery, sweet romance book, but I found myself rolling my eyes a lot and I just wanted to finish.

After this, I’m reading bother HQ book, let’s hope the same thing doesn’t happen… -sigh-

Title: No Strings Attached (Razor Bay #3)

Author: Susan Andersen

Published: July 29th 2014 by Harlequin HQN

Some mistakes are worth repeating…

Tasha Riordan’s one night with Luc Bradshaw was the best of her life. The following two—when she got thrown into a Bahamian jail on bogus charges—were her worst. Now, seven years later, the undercover DEA agent is back. Invading her town. Her restaurant. Her fantasies. She can’t trust a man who lied to her. Yet, neither can she trust herself—not when their chemistry burns even hotter than before.

Learning he has two half brothers shocks Luc. Discovering they live in the same town as Tasha—that’s a different kind of thrill. Their mutual lust is still off the charts, but he can’t get her to listen to his side of what happened on that long-ago night. Good thing he’s got powers of persuasion that go deeper than words. Because nothing has ever felt this right…

This book was ok…
It was very predictable, the relationships were on and off (which frustrated me and made me roll my eyes making my head hurt), and yes I read it in 2 hours (new record!) but it was draggy. Some parts were sweet, (the world building, Jeremy’s and Peyton’s relationship, Luc’s and Tasha’s relationship) and some parts were just boring, that I had to skip that part before I fell asleep. (and that’s never good)

I liked Tasha’s character, but the only thing I didn’t like about her was that she kept on pushing away Luc because of her mom (she didn’t want to end up like her) and she was a coward. To everybody she was suppose to be this strong, and selfless character, but when it came to relationships, she always needed to ask for opinions, and always pushed away people, which is why she ended up single until over 30 😛 (and she says its because she’s been busy, but then again she can take time off whenever she wants).

Title: The Rebel and the Heiress (The Wild Ones #2)

Author: Michelle Douglas

Published: August 5th 2014 by Harlequin

From rebel, to knight in shining armor…

Losing her family fortune, it’s time for once-privileged Nell Smythe-Whittaker to make it on her own, with a little help from delicious bad boy Rick Bradford! Woohoooo!!!

Rick hasn’t seen Nell since childhood, but with a family mystery to solve Rick needs Nell as much as she needs him. Yet with a past as checkered as his, can Rick ever be good enough for this beautiful heiress? It’s something he’s willing to prove….

The Wild Ones: What will it take to tame these rebels?

This book was a sweet read. The only thing that bugged me was that, how on earth is she a princess? I thought princesses lived in castles? But apparently her family is broke because of a divorce going on, and she now lives in a Victorian mansion, wanting to turn it into a Tea shop. But then this book turns into a mystery, because we find out things we don’t know until you read the book…

It was all really confusing… but at least I went through it.
