Shoot For The Moon, Book 2
Black River Series by Rochelle Paige
 ◄BLURB
Eliza Reve knows that her ability to dream of future events sets her apart from others. Her gift became a curse when she wasn't able to save her mother or the alpha's son and she found herself exiled - a lone wolf. When she joins the Black River Pack, Eliza vows never to reveal her talent to anyone. Not even the man who has walked in her dreams for years.

Spencer Tate is her mate, but her visions have told her that he will renounce her. When he doesn't recognize her as his mate, she agrees to the no-strings-attached affair he offers because she thinks it's the most she can hope for. Although her heart breaks as she falls deeper in love with him, she wants to spend as many days with Spencer as possible before he kicks her out of his life.

When Spencer finally comes to his senses, he has his work cut out for him to convince Eliza that he wants her forever. When another she-wolf insists she's his mate instead, things get even more complicated. But Spencer isn't the alpha's second and enforcer because he isn't willing to fight for what's his, and he refuses to settle for anything less than Eliza as his marked and claimed mate.

This is book two in the Black River Pack series. Each novella will feature a different couple. 
  
EXCERPT
 “You’re in my fucking bed, Eliza. You don’t need to wait until you have solid intel. You come to me the instant something’s wrong,” I argued.
“And say what?” she asked. “‘I think Grace is in trouble because I had a dream about her’? Bullshit! The second I laid that on you, you would have been out of my bed quick as a flash. You’ve had one foot out of it since the second you decided you wanted in. You made that damn clear to me when we started this.”
“If you’d ever actually shared what was going on in that head of yours before tonight, then I would have had you mated, marked, and claimed so fast your head would have fucking spun,” I bit out. “Instead of being an ass because I was so fucking pissed off you made me feel things I was only supposed to feel for my mate.”

MY REVIEW


 

“I’d do anything for you dream girl.” ~Spencer

I am completely wrapped up in the Black River Pack!

Shoot for the Moon, novella #2 takes us to Spencer, the beta in the pack and middle brother of the three. Spencer is still trying to deny his true feelings for Eliza while Eliza has a lock down on her emotional walls towards Spencer. These two are so stubborn that you just know that they are going to get in their own way sabotaging the deep connections that flow between them.  

Shoot for the Moon flows fluidly and strong continuing the story of the pack while simultaneously clarifying and bringing closure to the sexy and domineering relationship forged between Spencer and Eliza. Eliza’s secrets are finally revealed for the whole of the pact to accept and its Spencer’s secrets that hang in the balance as to whether pack life will be settled for him, one way or another.

So sit back and hold on, this runs fast and leads us suspensefully into part 3 of the Black River pack and into the younger brother, Parker’s story.

Again I will say if you like shifter romances or need that refreshing break to try something out of your normal genre of reading, Rochelle Paige and The Black River Pack series is one to pick up.

AUTHOR BIO
I absolutely adore reading - always have and always will. My friends growing up used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year's resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me "About time!"

After enduring an abusive childhood and having her heart broken by the only boy she trusts, Alexis White vows to never let anyone hurt her again. She's left her troubled past behind and starts a new life at college. For the past seven years, her social calendar has been filled with frat parties, drinking, and meaningless sexual hook-ups. Until one night she unexpectedly gets saved by a tall, dark, and handsome French foreigner, Luc Blanchard. He's charming, sophisticated, and very interested in Lexi, who has presented herself as a challenge when she tells him relationships aren't her thing.
She finds herself sucked in by his own intriguing past. But everything changes when Dylan Priestley, the gorgeous boy who broke her heart and shattered her faith in friendship and love, suddenly shows up in her life again while back home on a visit. Dylan doesn't hide his feelings for Lexi, but she can't forgive or forget being betrayed by the one person she ever truly loved.
Despite the pain Dylan's caused her, Lexi is once again drawn to the blue-eyed-boy-next-door. Will Lexi choose the man who seems perfect but hides a dark side or the boy who smashed her heart into pieces so many years ago?
Warning: this Book Ends in a cliffhanger. This is book one of a trilogy. Release dates will be held close together.
 
The lake looks exactly the same. Nothing has changed in the past seven years, except for me. There’s a line of cars parked along the dirt road like back in the day. There must be more friends at home visiting than I originally thought. A specific black Mercedes catches my eye and my heart sinks. It belongs to Dylan’s dad. Once I park, we follow the light along the dirt road to where the bonfire is. The cool air brushes my skin as we walk, so I get close to the fire to warm up. There are cases of beer piled up around the bonfire. My pulse races and my hands are clammy knowing that Dylan is here. I hope that I have a chance to down a few beers before I see him again. Emily and I spot each other at the same time, and she squeals loudly, running toward us.
“Alexis, look at you all grown up! I’m so glad you came, and you too, Ash. You look amazing,” Emily says in a sweet and welcoming voice. She looks great, too.
I notice her give Luc a one up, waiting for an introduction. “Sorry, Em, this is my boyfriend, Luc.”
“Hi, Luc, nice to meet you. I’m an old friend of Alexis.” Luc shakes her hand and his sexy accent slides smoothly off his tongue.
Emily’s melting, and I don’t blame her.  “He’s hot,” she says, and I grin.
She moves in close, whispering in my ear, “You know Dylan’s here. I’m sorry, Alexis, but he’s the one who called me and told me you were in town. He asked me to invite you so you two could talk. I don’t think he realized that you brought someone home. Of course I’m happy he called because I’m so happy to see you. It’s been years!”
Ashley stands close by, listening to every word. She nods to Emily and gives her a little wink. Emily winks back at her, and it seems they’re on the same page about something.
Ashley walks over to Luc and says, “Hey, Luc, let me show you the lake. You can also teach me some French words so I won’t struggle so much when I get back to Montreal.”
Emily’s totally clued in to Ash and she goes along with it. “Luc, it would be great if you could teach me French, too. I’ve always wanted to learn.” She grabs on to Luc’s other arm. Luc doesn’t seem interested, and he gives me a searching look. I gesture for him to go ahead.
They walk off toward the lake and Dylan makes his way toward me. He looks so good, older, mature.  His bright blue eyes and ruffled hair look even sexier with the unshaven stubble he has on his face. His body’s filled out since high school, and he’s broader and more muscular. My heart skips a beat just watching him walk toward me.
“Hey, Lex.”
I don’t respond because despite how my heart feels, my mind knows better.
He has both hands in his front pockets, his shoulders are slightly hunched, and he seems unsure about approaching me. “I was kind of hoping we could talk. Can we go sit by the rocks or something so we have some privacy?” he asks, almost pleading with me.
My arms are wrapped around my body, holding myself to keep from getting cold, but I also need to keep it together. “I don’t think that’s a good idea. I’m here with someone, and he wouldn’t like that,” I respond coldly.
“Please, Lex, just a few minutes. You know we need to talk,” he pleads again, his blue eyes sparkling in the moonlight. I can never say no to those eyes.
I look away from him and stare back into the fire. “I really don’t think we do. It’s been seven years. There are cell phones in this day and age, and you could have picked one up at some point and dialed my number. Nothing’s changed, Dylan.” I turn around and check to see if Luc’s in the area, but he’s nowhere in sight.
“Please, Alexis, we need to talk.” He never calls me Alexis, so he means business. He grabs my arm, towing me toward the rocks, muttering under his breath about what a stubborn girl I am.
We make our way to the rocks and he’s silent, staring at me as if he’s seeing me for the first time. Then he puts his fingers through his hair and says, “Shit, you’re beautiful.”

*/*/COVER REVEAL, THE BILLIONAIRE BARGAIN\*\*

Title: The Billionaire Bargain
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 22, 2015
Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23967620-the-billionaire-bargain






Synopsis
Sexy Australian billionaire Grant Devlin is ruining my life. He exercises shirtless in his office, is notorious for his lunchtime nooners, he even yawns sexily. If I didn't need this job so bad, I'd take his black Amex and tell him where to swipe it.
He doesn't even know I exist, but why would he? He jets off to Paris with supermodels, I spend Friday nights with Netflix and a chunk of Pepperidge Farm frozen cake—waiting for his call. Because every time he crashes his yacht, or blows $500k on a single roulette spin in Monte Carlo, I’m the PR girl who has to clean up his mess.
But this time, it’s going to take more than just a fat charity donation. This time, the whole company is on the line. He needs to show investors that he’s settling down, and Step #1 is pretending to date a nice, stable girl until people forget about what happened with the Playboy Bunnies backstage at the Oscars.
My plan is perfect, except for one thing:
He picks me.




Excerpt
You might think I’m exaggerating his attractiveness. I’m not. Picture a handsome man. No, more handsome than that. Square that jawline, brush those brown curls with gold, darken those blue eyes till they’re almost black, deep sapphire pools made for mooning over. Deepen that voice till it’s like dark chocolate, and thread it through with a  sexy chameleon accent—one second so crisp and upper class it might almost be British, the second relaxing into long lazy vowels that conjured up visions of him kicking back beers on a sunny Australian beach, surfboard planted in the sand as he contemplated the rolling waves with a practiced eye. Strip away any hint of fat over that lean, muscular sailor’s physique; evenly tan his smooth skin until he’s a bronzed Adonis. 
For intrigue, add just a few scars on his powerful arms—sometimes a wide-eyed young intern might ask where he got them, and he’d flex his arms and tell a completely different story than he had the last time, each more improbable than the last. And whether it featured great white sharks, modern-day pirates, or a knife-throwing bet, that wide-eyed intern would swoon right into those arms, disappear at the end of the day into his limo, and moon around the office for a couple of weeks, constantly checking their phones for texts that never came, until they quit or until security had to boot them from the building for trying to ambush him outside of his office with pleading love notes and recriminations.
But I’ve gotten off-topic. Back to your mental picture of a handsome man. Now picture that an entire team of crack tailors working night and day to create the perfect suit, cut to hang just right on his body, tight across shoulders you could build a house on and an ass that belonged in an underwear commercial. Imagine the world’s greatest stylists converging upon him with mousse and hairdryers until not a hair was out of place except the ones he intended to be, each chestnut lock artfully tousled for maximum effect.
And then he smirks.
Now freeze that perfect, sexy, infuriating bastard at that exact moment in time so that nothing ever musses him or ruffles his feathers or causes a single blip on the horizon of his life, and you’ve got Grant Devlin.
