Review for The Deal by Z. Elizabeth




One feud.
Two families.
One secret.
What happens when you fall for the enemy?
Thanks to their fathers' feud, Nicole and Craig have been enemies since the moment they were born. But six years ago they fell in love... They just never told each other.
Motivated by their grandparents' money, they agree to a simple deal: Stay married for a year and unravel the secrets and lies surrounding their fathers. Bound together, they must figure out why the two former best friends have spent the last thirty years ignoring one another and prohibited any contact between Nicole and Craig.
Craig is more than happy to uncover their fathers' past if it means he gets Nicole for real.
Nicole wants to keep the past exactly where it is and she will fight Craig every step of the way.
With only limited time together, delving into their family history could be the mistake that will break both their hearts.
What happens when secrets and lies are revealed? Can Nicole and Craig live their Happily Ever After after waiting six long years to be together? Or will one secret be enough to break them apart, just like their fathers?
'I'm doing this for us, Nic'
*THE DEAL is suitable for 17+ due to graphic sex scenes and language*
*This is a STANDALONE novel. Book two is a companion novel.




My 5 Star review:

Nicole is this beautiful young woman who knows what she wants out of life but in blink of an eye her entire world changes altering what and who she wants in life. All it took was a call from her deceased grandparents’ lawyer to throw her life into a whirling windstorm only to find out what all stays intact when it sets her back on firm ground.

"The way he's working his tongue over my clit, it's like fucking magic. I don't even think Harry Potter could do the things that Craig has mastered."

Craig is this hot sexy ass playboy who, well let’s face it, he used to change women like he changed his boxers. He is a young man who is ready to move forward and take charge; that is until he gets the phone call of a lifetime.

"Now for the wedding night, do I rip the dress off or unbutton it one by one? I'm thinking I should just rip it off you. I know you can't wait to jump my cock."

Nicole and Craig were told from day one that they were to stay away from one another due to the fact that there is bad blood between the two families. Yes...unfortunately they listened to their parents but they couldn’t keep them apart everywhere. School was one place they couldn’t keep them from each other since they attended the same one and of course ended up having the same damn friends. What made it easy at first to stay away was what made it hard to stay away in the end. Craig used to get on Nicole’s nerves and well what can I say, he was a bit of an ass too.

"The only reason girls buy a kindle is for this- for them to hide the sex books they all secretly have...and my girl definitely has an array of smut ready to turn her the fuck on."

Now at 22, they are to be married…to EACH OTHER. But this isn’t like any other arranged marriage. This one is a fake. They must have a wedding and stay married for 1 year. And if and only if after that 1 year they have stayed married they will both get a heavy inheritance. So as they say…

Let The Deal begin!

I absolutely loved this book and read it in less than 5 hours!!! I laughed my ass off at the banter between the two but there was never too much to make me not fall in love with them. OMG...and Craig, be still my beating heart! Once you get passed his cocky ass nature and see the real him and true feelings, well, then he will melt your heart. And as you can see from the few quotes I included with this review, I was also a highlighting fool while reading this book too.

So with all that being said, Z. Elizabeth you did a freaking fantastic job on your first novel! Congrats!! Bravo my dear! You absolutely deserve it!

P.s… I need to find Craig and when I do I am keeping him all to myself ;)

My top 20 reads of 2014!






2014 has been a pretty amazing year and I know that 2015 will be even better. It still blows my mind that authors still want me to read and review their books. What is even cooler is that readers actually want to read my reviews. It is pretty awesome! So here is a list of my top 10 books of 2014 and I will not put them in order because it will be to hard, and I don't want to cheat anyone out ;)

I do have to say that there are 2 authors that just blew me away this year and they are.......


Jason Luke wrote Interview with a Master, In Love with a Master, Vignettes of a Master, and Interview with a Porn Star. He is such an amazing author and he actually brought his character to life and that well.....is pretty damn awesome. I also know that he is currently working on his next project and I for one can't wait for it to come out!


Luke Young created the Friends with Benefits series. This series is hands down one of the funniest series I have ever read. Then he blew me away and wrote Gone Girl Parody: Go Away Girl and I have to say that this book really needs to be a movie. In my opinion everything he writes is brilliant, give him a subject and he will turn it into gold! He has also written.... Shrinkage, Chocolate Covered Billionaire Navy Seal: A Parody, and Chances Aren't







When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees. 

Archer's Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love. 


THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY SAGITTARIUS. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

And when secrets are revealed, 
Some will heal you ... 
And some will end you. 

Kate Sedgwick’s life has been anything but typical. She’s endured hardship and tragedy, but throughout it all she remains happy and optimistic (there’s a reason her best friend Gus calls her Bright Side). Kate is strong-willed, funny, smart, and musically gifted. She’s also never believed in love. So when Kate leaves San Diego to attend college in the small town of Grant, Minnesota, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with Keller Banks. 

They both feel it. 


But they each have a reason to fight it. 

They each have a secret. 




And when secrets are revealed, 

Some will heal you … 

And some will end you.

But it’s real.
I’m sure you’re wondering how a person falls in love with their stalker.
So am I.
This isn’t a story.

When Jonah Noble reveals details of his life within the world of BDSM, the tale he tells is intensely erotic, profoundly sensual, and brutally honest. 
This is His world. His way. 
There is only one question the man will not answer… 





You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you. 



When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be. 

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here. 
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. 
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him. 

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. But things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. 

Then, just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California. 

It had been years since I’d seen Elec. 

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again. 

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane. 

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again. 

Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel. 








Marriage can be a real nightmare; especially when your wife is a sociopath, who's either trying to kill you, frame you for her disappearance or maybe even both. Supported by his sister whose own behavior is inappropriate at best, a pair of lunatic detectives and in-laws with questionable motives, Rick Dunce tries to navigate the tricky waters of exactly how one should act when the woman he absolutely can’t stand disappears without a trace. 



If this Husband-of-the-Year is truly responsible, did he act in self-defense or did one too many bizarre quiz questions or inane treasure hunt clues finally push him over the edge? Whether Winnie is missing, dead or just hiding out, the only thing that's certain is she's so far gone that it's not even funny— except that it is. 

A parody of, Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn's acclaimed and runaway bestselling masterpiece, Go Away Girl, will leave you doubled over with laughter, gasping for breath and checking to see if your own ottoman can really balance on its side like that. 

Please note that this parody was previously titled So Far Gone, Girl.








There is no sensation, no experience more delicious and tempting to the sense that the taste of forbidden love. The longing, the desire… the unquenched thirst for his touch. He was the man I was never supposed to love. I was supposed to hate him. I supposed part of me did and that is what made the desire so much more intense. He set a fire under my skin that burned white hot with every smoldering glance. He sets my soul ablaze, the slow burn of passion aching in every inch of my body. 

Black Horse. The name haunted my dreams… But regardless of family vendettas, old hurts and contemptuous blood shed, the heart wants what it wants… The kingdom of my heart has only known one king, and his name is Colton McClain. 

His family is known by his father’s nickname: Black Horse. Like one of the four horses flying out of the gates of hell, Tom “Black Horse” McClain ripped my world apart twenty years ago. I was only five when I found my mother and father dead in their beds, with Tom McClain standing over them with a blood stained butcher knife. He would have come for me, too, had my brother not saved me. I was the only one of my family to walk out of that house alive that night. 
My brothers once considered Colton their best friend. Not anymore. Randy and Tim largely blame Colt for his father’s actions and take it to heart that I love the son of our parent’s killer. Colton is not to blame for their deaths, though… He was a victim, too. Now twenty years after murders, Black Horse is getting out of jail. He’s coming. He has a vendetta against me, because it was my testimony that put me away. Colt wants to hide me until he can take down his old man, but to hell with that. I have no intentions upon running. We cannot hide from this anymore. 

Our past does not own us, and we owe it to our hearts to show the world that love can arise from the darkest of places. We just have to survive Black Horse to tell the tale.

Caught and caged in beauty. 
Beauty comes at a cost. 
One man holds the key to our survival, to our freedom. 
Find out how I lived and lost the greatest thing on earth. 
Love. 


Jake 
I didn't see her coming and that will be my downfall. 
She will ruin me, take everything from me, and give me everything I can't have. 
I can't help her. I won't. 
She is innocence. She is strength.

Five years ago, I left my fiancĂ©, hotter than hot Navy SEAL Kade Kelly, at the altar. 


No, I’m not an idiot. 



Yes, I had my reasons. 



Now I’ve made a new life for myself working at a large firm in Richmond and I’ve left the past behind. Or so I thought. 



Upon returning to my hometown of Serenity Point, Virginia, to take care of some business, I find that Kade’s now home for good and he’s none too happy about my being here. 



Two months. That’s all I’m staying then I’m out of here. Unless I believe the town’s pink-haired psychic’s prediction. Or embrace the sense of belonging I feel at being back home. Or give in to the emotions stirring inside when Kade's attention is suddenly on me. 



He scares the crap out of me. 



He thrills me. 

He used to tell me our love was bigger than the sky. 
I always knew ours was a once-in-a-lifetime love. So how can he be so sure it can happen again? 





Lives intersect only to be changed indefinitely. 

Lauren 
This isn't your typical girl meets boy. There isn't a glass slipper or Prince Charming. I've lived it and now it will be told. Welcome to my personal hell. 

Derrick 
Women are drawn to me like a moth to the flame, and like the moth not all of them continue on. Some are broken, others are damaged, and a few never make it out. I create my own rules in a world where I have nothing left to lose. Living is a game, and I'm the reigning champion by being stronger and smarter than my prey. This is your warning. If you radiate vulnerability, you could be my next victim. Don't try to hide. I'm not easily eluded. 

Abbot 
It started with me and now it will end with me. Some people call me an uncontrollable monster. I laugh at the mention of the word. Monsters have no control. I've got plenty. I don't kill without reason. I don't kill the innocent. I hunt the ones that deserve it, the real monsters, the ones without regret or a soul. 




Beau Hale 
She said that she was my best friend and then one day she wasn’t. Every day I live with the visible scars, but it’s the invisible ones that hurt the most. They are a constant reminder of everything I’ve lost as well as all the things that I’ll never have. I should be over this by now, it’s been years, but I can’t escape the memories that haunt me. Everyone around me is moving on with their life, so now I need to do the same. Tennis brought me to Columbia University, and I am quickly proving that I will not let anyone defeat me, past or present. I am in control now. Life has taught me the hard way to remember that. But after all this time, I’m still searching for an answer to the one question that is constantly burning in the back of my mind…why? 


Leila Starling 
He said that he was my best friend, and then one day he wasn’t. It took one moment to change my entire life. What I thought I knew became a lie and nothing was ever the same. Slowly, I picked up the pieces and focused on what I could control…me. I live in New York City and attend one of the world’s most prestigious fashion and design schools. Day after day, I am getting closer and closer to making my dreams come true. I did this all on my own and no one can ever take it from me. I know my future is bright, even if my heart is destined to stay in the dark. The dull ache that still lingers is my daily reminder to rely on no one but myself. Although, after all this time, I still can’t help but wonder…why? 



They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence.

But I'm not innocent.

I haven't been for a very long time.

My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams.

Gone.

Vanished.

I never even had a choice.

I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs.

Until now.

I'm ready to take back what was always meant to be mine.

But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it's the heart.




I have traveled many roads, but riding the road to winning her heart is proving to be my greatest journey yet... "Nothing brings me so much pain and pleasure, like her mouth."
My name is Striker Black and this is my story...
Have you ever made a choice that changed everything? A decision that set off a chain of events that you could not control. Have you ever been torn between wishing to go back and change one night if it could repair all of the lives you ruined or being glad that it happened because it brought you, the most precious gift life had to offer?
As long as I can remember, I have sworn to protect her, to give her everything she ever needed. I waited so long for her to put her faith in me to trust in me to cherish her and I failed her. Letting down the one person who mattered most to me broke me, letting her go about nearly killed me.

The Midnight Society has fallen, reduced to ashes by a monster; someone whom we all once trusted. The betrayal has shattered our lives forever and Shadow, Lord of the Midnight Society, finds himself at a crossroad. 

One road leads him further down the path of vengeance, filled with unending violence and dead bodies. The other road leads to me. However, our path to happiness is paved with broken glass and razorblades, and at some point, one of us is going to fall. 

Welcome to the world of the Midnight Society.


Love has no time limit. 

For Briar Gallo, her lifelong best friend, Benji, was more than the boy next door. He was her first—everything. Her first friend, her first kiss, her first love, and her first heartbreak. The day Benji left was the worst day of her life. Until the day he came back. 

Benjamin Borelli always knew he’d find a way back to Briar—he just couldn’t foresee the devastating circumstances that would pave his way home. A lot has changed in the three years since he’s left. Benji is no longer the sweet, easygoing kid he once was. A lifestyle of drugs and violence has hardened him, leaving him hollow and despondent. But his feelings for Briar have always been his one constant. 

When a series of wrong choices and bad decisions force Benji to flee back to his childhood home, he knows he has to clean himself up and straighten out the mess he’s made before he’ll be worthy of Briar again. But there’s no outrunning the danger of his past. With the threat so close to home, he must do whatever it takes to protect the girl he’s always loved—no matter the risk.
