James Black by Skye Turner

James Black, the hottest name in Hollywood. Blockbuster films, tabloid headlines, and broken hearts surround this golden playboy.

Avangeline Price, a strong willed, tough as nails, zero tolerance for games woman who believes love only exists in books and movies.

James is accustomed to women falling at his feet. Avangeline has an intense dislike of celebrities and an even bigger dislike of James Black.

She's unimpressed. He's intrigued. Both have preconceived notions.

But… sometimes the unscripted territory is what matters most.

When Hollywood meets Louisiana, can real life rival the movies?
***This book contains explicit sex and graphic language. It is NOT recommended for readers under the age of 18 OR those who do not read this type of book.
 
Prologue

James

            Bright lights, big city… the perfect place to lose yourself.

That’s the impression I first got of Los Angeles and it’s the impression I still have today. The city of Lost Angels. I fit right in here, though I’d call myself more of a devil on any given day.

This is where I started over. This is where the boy with nothing took on the world and became the man who has people at his beck and call for every little whim.

As I look around at my hillside mansion overlooking the city, I laugh cockily at the way life has panned out.
            Do I have love? No, but I have money. I have adoring fans and people follow me wherever I go. It works.

Is it a perfect life? Of course not. Being in the public eye, never having any privacy... But, it is what it is and it’s the life I’ve chosen. It’s the life for me.

The large clock chimes in the foyer and I glance at my bags near the door. The limo driver should be pulling up at any second.

Next stop… Louisiana. Not at all where I want to spend the next year and a half of my life, but it’s where filming is and filming keeps my bank account happy. All of them. This three movie deal should easily drop another chunk of change into them.

Not that I money is something I really need more of.

Smiling at the thought and the irony of that logic, I open the door just as the bell rings.

“Mr. Black. Good morning, Sir. I’ll get your bags into the car and in just a few minutes, we’ll be off. Is there anything else you need before we head to the airport?”

I think about that…

“No, I think I’m good.”

He nods, “Very good, Sir. Let me take these.”

 OUR REVIEW


5 Stars

James Black he is loved by everyone and is cocky enough to know it. AJ Price is proud of her job as a driver and takes no crap from anyone. She is beautiful yet tough. I loved the banter between them it had my laughing through the entire book, but then you have the secrets. They are each holding back and yet wondering where their new found feelings are coming from.

Skye Turner amazes me with each book, in this one she took a city that you can tell she loves, New Orleans, and made the book so great. Both characters were amazingly written and I was left wanting more.

Three lives.
One mistake.
One decision.

Jensen:
She was my life; my whole world until a surprise visit left me confused and angry. Then, one night changes everything, and now I have to make a decision that'll change my future. I still love her, but someone else is showing me what it's like to live.

Slowly, he's letting me in and slowly, I'm falling for him. But his heart belongs to another woman. Should I fight for him or let go?

Everything happens for a reason.


Prologue

Do you want to hear a story?
It's about a girl who had everything. She was so happy and loved her life. She had an amazing family and a boy who loved her with his whole heart. Then, one day, the girl became lost and wasn't sure what to do. She was scared to leave the one place that held her heart. She asked herself how she could move on and be okay. She looked for signs, but nothing came to her.
Were the signs coming?
Would she know what direction to take?
These were the questions she asked herself. Then, one night, she found herself in her bathroom, staring at a pill bottle. She stared for so long, wondering what would happen if she took the pills.

* * * * *

Putting the bottle to my face, I wonder how fast it would be. My grip around the pill bottle gets stronger. Sobs escape my lungs and slip through my lips. The shattering pain that blisters through pushes me forward. I look at the reflection in the mirror and anger spews from me. Lifting my right arm, I punch the mirror several times, feeling the shards of glass slicing my hand. The pain sears through, but I don't feel it. The pain of my broken heart is stronger.
I grab a piece of the shattered glass and hold it tightly in my hand. I want the pain to go away. I want to feel alive again. I want to breathe, and I want to let go. Since losing him, I've been hiding. No one can pull me out of this. I don't want anyone to. Honestly, I like being alone to think about how I feel without him. When I'm alone, I don't have to pretend to smile to please whoever is around me. Believe me, no one likes to be around suicidal and depressed people. We're the downers, and there's only so much someone can take before they disregard the person.
I'm being disregarded.
Pushing down the top of the bottle, I toss the cap aside and look at the white pills. This is the only way I can be with Brody again.
He's my rock.
My home.
My everything.
Brody.

I immediately loved Jensen..We first meet Fallyn who is heartbroken over the love of her life Brody who was tragically murdered, as she moves away from her hometown and the pain her circle of friends seems to enlarge. Fallyn and Jensen become great friends, as Jensen has a girlfriend who is away at college. However as their lives unfold and they spend more time together Fallyn finds herself falling in love again but knows he is off limits so she closes herself off. Jensen finds himself confused and in love with two women...What do the cards hold for both, can they be just friends?
I absolutely love S.Moose and this book was fantastic, I felt so many emotions and will be recommending it to others.

DRTeaser1

1de41-excerpt

It’s so easy to think you’re invincible when you’re a kid. No one tells you any different, so you’re led to believe that you’re untouchable. When you play with your GI Joes, Snake Eyes always takes down the bad guys; and good always prevails over evil. Your parents just smile and watch you play and protect your innocence. Then you grow up and you learn that good doesn’t always win. In the end we all die, there is no escaping the fact that we won’t live forever. When your time is up, it’s up. There’s no cheating death. I always knew growing up I was destined to make something great of myself. I was going to have purpose in this ugly world and bring some beauty into it. I just didn’t know how I was going to do it. It’s hard to find yourself when your mother’s a drug addict and your dad walked out on you at the age of four. Not really the best role models for a kid. Most people would use that as their excuse to slack off and not have to follow the rules. Feel entitled to do whatever the fuck they wanted because life handed them a shitty hand. Not me, I took it as my chance to prove to everyone out there that there are no excuses; you create your own future. I studied hard through school and my grades excelled. I joined every sports team I could to keep myself busy so I wouldn’t have to go home to my mom. I eventually had to get a part-time job at an auto shop to help pay for my food. My mother never seemed to care if I had food on the table. The only thing she cared about was how she was going to get her next fix I had no choice but to provide for myself or I would go hungry. Still, I never resented her. Her addiction made me stronger and taught me that hard work pays off. Fast forward and here I am, thirty years old and a DEA Agent with a nice record of busts under my belt. Ironic isn’t it? I grew up with a drug addict and now I take down drug dealers. Dante Santoro, the biggest walking contradiction to the drug world. Nice to meet you.


Our Review
5 Stars

WOW....
Ok in this book we have Dante strong and loyal and very determined to be the very best at his job. Then we have Ava full of secrets and has an "arrangement" with Dante long before they really know each other.

I don't do spoilers but I need to say this book had an amazing storyline and it just got better with every page. I absolutely loved the entire book and while the ending left me open-mouthed and needing more, it was fantastically done.

I am really looking forward to seeing what happens next. I am still in book hangover mode from this book, I can't even think about picking up another yet... Very well done!!
