Fall With Me Release Day

image

Hiya all!
JLA has a new release today. Check it out!
Excerpt:
Someone—was it Melvin?—catcalled as Reece led me down the hall, and my cheeks flushed. “Okay, heman, I can walk all by my little self.”

He cast a look over his shoulder at me as he opened the office door. “I’m sure you can.”

Then he pulled me inside.

My gaze flipped to the roses—the roses!—but before I could say a word, he closed the door and my back was pressed against it, his hands planted on either side of my head and his face right in mine. Like right there, within kissing distance.

Wow.

“So, I was at my father’s place in New Jersey most of the day, and you know, he lives out near the Pine Barrens, so service is shit.”

I nodded even though I really wasn’t processing what he was saying as I was too busy staring at his mouth. Those lips, fuller on the bottom, drove me to distraction.

“I pull out of his driveway and I have all these messages from Dennis,” he continued, and I finally caught on to what he was talking about. “I honestly thought he was messing with me at first.”

I cringed. “He . . . um, he wasn’t.”

He shot me a bland look. “That much I figured out.” His hands slid on the door, stopping just shy of touching my shoulders. “What did he do to you?”

“What?” I blinked.

“What did that bastard do to make you throw a book through his windshield?”

Oh. Oh. My heart was now wiggling along with my stomach. “He really didn’t do anything. I just lost my cool. He wanted to talk to me, and I didn’t want to talk to him.”

“You don’t have to talk to him.”

“That’s what Dennis said, but I shouldn’t have damaged his car.”

A muscle flexed along his right jaw. “That’s true.” He shook his head. “Damn, Roxy, can’t say I’m surprised.”

My brows flew up. “You’re not?”

He laughed under his breath. “Babe, you’ve always had a hell of a temper on you.”

Ah, that was kind of true. “Is that a good thing or a bad thing?”

Reece cocked his head to the side. “A sexy thing, but vandalism and destruction of property doesn’t look good on you, sweets.”

“No. It doesn’t match my manicure.” I raised my hands, flashing him the blue nails.

He laughed again and then he sobered up, just like that. Cop Face was on, and yeah . . . the low coiling in my stomach told me I found Cop Face arousing. “You’re lucky. He could’ve pressed charges, and this conversation would be going in a whole different direction.”

My own half smile slipped off my face. “I know. It’s . . . I was just with Charlie, and he’s . . .” Unable to continue, I forced a casual shrug I didn’t feel. “What are you going to do with me?”

His lips parted as his chest rose with a deep breath, then his gaze dropped to my mouth, and his expression tightened. He looked . . . he looked hungry. “I have lots of ideas.”

FALL WITH ME Synopsis:
Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice. 

Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.

But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.

#Player ARC review + Giveaway + Playlist

Title: #Player
Series: Hashtag Series
Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: NA Contemp/College Romance
Release Date: March 9, 2015
Hiya everyone!
#Player is live!  Went live a day early, in fact!  So exciting! Romeo and Rimmel’s story is complete, though the series will continue on with #Selfie featuring Braeden.

Players gotta play.

Hate is like a poison. It contaminates everything.
So does doubt.
Even though I deny what I overheard, even though I insist it isn’t true, the seed of doubt has been planted. I can’t help but be tormented with the endless what-if’s that have taken over our lives.
Romeo and I were happy in love. The future stretched before us brighter than any star in the darkest sky. Now everything is broken. Literally broken. Romeo’s entire career is at stake, my entire future is threatened… and my past?
It’s coming back to haunt me.
To haunt us.
Romeo says we’re in this together and right now the only sure thing is us. But how far can a love so new be pushed? The lengths we will have to go to save each other puts everything at risk.

Romeo is a #player but how much of the game can one person play?

 My Review:

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

(For those who haven’t yet read #Nerd and #Hater, there will be some spoilers)

So much love for #Player.  So.  Much.  So many feels. Player picks up right where Hater left off, at the Hospital with Romeo and Rimmel dealing with the aftermath of Zach’s attack.  Kicks you right in the gut with all the feels right from the beginning.  Seriously, it’s rough.  Many tears were shed here during the reading of Player.  Don’t worry, there’s plenty happy tears as well as sad ones.  There are books you read, books that speak to you, and books you live.  Nerd and Hater spoke to me deeply, but I really lived Player.  It sucked me in and took me for a ride in the world of Alpha U.  I have some major love for this world and the characters.  Some people (who clearly don’t understand my bookish ways) might say that I’m overly attached to a certain #Nerd and her #Player and a certain BBFL.

Braeden makes an entrance in true Braeden fashion, and right off the bat he made me cry.  Cannot wait for his story.  Anymore than I could wait for Player.  It was well worth the wait, as I’ve come to expect from Cambria.  As I said, there were tears and feels.  Giggles and one particular heart-stopping moment.  Literally.  I swear my heart stopped.  I was so in the moment.  Had to literally set down my Kindle a couple of times just for a breather.  We see Rome and Rim struggle to find their footing in more ways than one, Braeden and Ivy clash, the resolution of the Zach situation, secrets and lies and truths that could ruin everything for everyone.  All and all, Player was everything I hoped for and so much more.  I think we all need a Romeo.  And a Braeden, too.  Rim’s one lucky, lucky girl.  Even when she’s having a bad day, which are fairly plentiful throughout. But don’t take my word for it! Go read it yourself.  After all, if you review it this week, Cambria offers a very nice reward. (See below). Also, go check out the giveaway.  It’s pretty sa-weet!
