AJ The name AJ Colthurst may not have any meaning to the public eye, but it should, as I’m the daughter of two famous celebrities. Like any superstar, they crave privacy; so much of it, they built a house in the middle of nowhere for us children. As we grew older, we discovered the lies they built as a fort to protect us from the media, ended up causing emotional damage along the way. I carry a portion of the guilt on my shoulders; the other part I discovered is the separation of my parents. Their unorthodox ways may have driven me bonkers, but knowing they are no longer together is unacceptable. That’s why I decided to rattle their cage by reminding at least one of my parents of the past and the reason they belong together. They need to remember why their love is so perfect and why they have to fight to keep it alive. Even if it means I have to dredge up some of my own painful memories along the way. Gabe Back in the early eighties, I set myself to succeed in the financial world. The first step had been moving to New York City to become a stockbroker, but things didn’t work out the way I had hoped. Instead, I ended up making movies and by the end of the decade, Gabe Colt had become a famous name. The downside to my career of choice: the paparazzi. In order to protect my family and our privacy, I maintained my family away from the circus. It had been for their own good; a decision we had made before we started our family. However, those past decisions ended up chasing my entire family away and now I’m trying to put the pieces back together along with my little girl.

What a fantastic start to a new series. This book had me hooked and took me on an emotional rollercoaster. I fell in love with every character in this story and im sure you won’t be disappointed either.

Where to start…..Firstly this book is all about family and the writing was raw and real, I could honestly say each and every scenario was believable. And secondly I loved how the characters were telling the story of today and the story of the past.

AJ hasn’t spoke to her parent in 3 years; the dynamics of her family have always been kept a secret from the world due to her father’s decisions. Feeling unloved and after some heartbreaking circumstances she blows up at her parents and as she won’t back down her father disowns her.

Whilst trying to work through the issues of her own life, AJ also feels the need to go confront her estranged father regarding the story that has just been splashed across the tabloids.

I don’t want to say anymore as I don’t want to ruin this journey for other readers. However have your tissues at the reads and be prepared for the secrets and lies to rip your heart out AND the deep love this family has for each other will slowly piece it back together for you.


AJ The lies between my parents and I came to light and now I’m working on a new life for myself. Along the way, I have my trusty superhero, Mason, to lean on when I have a hard time standing or when my crazy ex-boyfriend continues to feel he has a claim on me. Porter has trouble understanding that there hasn’t been an ‘us’ for more than three years plus all the issues he had brought upon himself. My father was right, drugs do kill. My other concern is the growing feelings I am having regarding Mason. There’s something between us I want to explore but I keep getting mixed signals. Here, I thought that after telling my parents about my lies and having their full support, things wouldn’t be as complicated as they are. Mason My parents divorced before I even made my entrance into this world. My father has been obsessed with that love for years while my mother searches for love in all the wrong places. I don’t want a place to call home or a girl I can claim as mine. Except… Ainsley Janine –better known as ‘Nine’—has some special power that makes me question my preferences. The more I try to stay away from her, the more she pulls me closer. Exploring the possibilities of having something steady in my life isn’t a problem; it’s the long term that worries me. In addition to that, the scumbag she dated years ago keeps popping up everywhere we go. If I could use my license to kill, maybe I can stop worrying about one thing and concentrate on what to do with the green eyed girl who keeps me awake most nights.

So after reading the first book of this series I had no reservations about jumping into book 2. This was just as good if not better. The emotions I felt in this book were a little different, We now have AJ and Masons story and at times they both left me a little frustrated and emotionally tired but in a good way.

Mason is a strong sexy guy on the outside but on the inside he is scared, his parent’s relationship has tinted him. He doesn’t believe in true love and is petrified of falling in love and loosing them.

Having been in a controlling and abusive relationship in the past AJ is a strong woman to want to fall in love and share a magical bond with someone, she will give them 100% but she also wants 100% back.

Having blurred the lines of their friendship, AJ finds herself all in and wanting what her parents have but has she found this with Mason.

Mason knows things have changed between them, he knows what he feels but he is scared. How can he continue with this relationship when he knows he is going to hurt her, so he thinks the only thing to do is to run!!!

This is a slow smolder love that soon turns into a raging inferno that has no bounds.


  

Jacob As a rule, men don’t grow up believing in a happily ever after. We don’t believe in meeting the love of our lives; or the white picket fence, and 2.5 children. Every man thinks that those stupid dreams or fantasies are just nonexistent shit until it happens to them. We should have been forewarned. I wish I was prepared for someone to appear in my life and change all my priorities. I suddenly wanted that fence and children. The part of meeting the love of my life became very real, but I wasn’t ready for suddenly losing it all, and my life plummeting into this shithole forever. The heartbreak of losing your soulmate is one of the worst pains you will ever live with. I should campaign and warn the young people. Vaccinate against love because if you lose it, you could lose yourself for the rest of your life. The burden on your back will forever mark you and wither away your soul, darkening your days and the rest of your natural life. This isn’t false advertisement or a dramatic display of one bitter soul. Pria I fought by my mother's side until her last breath, and tried to help my father until his last memories dissipated. My sister is the last one standing, but her life is a miracle that can end at any given moment. All my life I’ve never been alone, but always felt lonely. Today, my options on how to live my life are endless, yet my heart and my best friend limit them. Stay in Seattle, close to the one person that will never let me inside his world. The thug, as mom would've called him. A man with a bad boy attitude and a heart bigger than the ocean.

WOW…Ms. Burgoa has done it again!!! A hat trick of 5 Star reviews.
I have loved JC from book one and couldn’t wait to read his story and I couldn’t put it down. This is all about second chances and your one true love. Their story stole my breath and made my heart beat fast all at the same time.

JC and Pria are not strangers, their first meeting lasted a week where everyone and everything around the ceased to exists. They had an instant attraction and fell of each other hard. But all good things come to an end and they parted with the promise they would meet again very soon.

10 years have past since that unforgettable week and they are now very different people.
JC deals with his past with alcohol and ladies to try and forget it all whereas Pria has come out stronger and still has her fighting spirit.

Will they find the love they shared once is still there or will they get their closure?
Can they mend one another or will they both remain broken?

Sometimes we meet our soul mates and they truly capture our hearts.

I love the passion in this book and the tears that fell were not all sad tears. This is a story of loss, hope and second chances and one you should definitely one click!!!
 

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new adventure. She now lives in Colorado working as a CFO for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.
