Bereft by Jennifer Foor cover reveal


A NEW STANDALONE IN THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH SERIES RELEASING ON SEPTEMBER 21

He's half my age, with a body that won't quit. I keep telling myself it's payback, but who am I kidding? Instead of getting even, I've now made things irreparable. I have a choice to make, and it's going to be a lot harder than I imagined.

Give in to Temptation
Fulfill your deepest Desires

Fate Series by Emersyn Vallis blog tour with review and giveaway


Series: Fate Series 
Author: Emersyn Vallis
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: Available Now


When I chose to leave home I knew what I was giving up. I knew I was walking away from life as I knew it and the plans that we had made. We…us…him and I… 
It’s funny to think of him in a different light…or life. 
That’s what it feels like, a lifetime ago. 
But I’m a different person now. I have rules and goals. And if it wasn’t for my parents' vow renewal I would have successfully evaded him for the rest of my life. This is not by choice, I can tell you that. 
I just need to focus and remember the key to this weekend is avoidance…and alcohol. But if anyone can pull that off it’s me, 
Sidney Chandler, queen of avoiding anything that will make me feel. 
It’s just one weekend, right? 
One very long weekend with my family…friends…my sisters and me…together, and our nemeses, the McAllister triplets. 
What could possibly go wrong? 
Everything. 
They say you never forget your first love, now just imagine how hard it is to forget your only. 
This is going to suck.


My Review:
4.5 stars for Emersyn Vallis's debut novel. I LOVED it!!!!! I can not remember the last time a book had me laughing so hard! I had a hard time getting into the story because the beginning was a little slow for me but once the ball started rolling I couldn't put the book down.

The story centers around Sydney Chandler and her first love Simon McAllister. At graduation Simon committed the ultimate betrayal and left Sydney brokenhearted. It was then that she decided she was going to change the path of her life and move to New York. The two ran into each other a few times over the last few years but Sydney always acted like she hated Simon. But when Sydney's parents renew their wedding vows and Sydney and Simon are forced to spend some time together will she be able to keep that wall up?

Adjournment has a cast a characters that will keep you laughing your butt off!!! You just can't help but fall in love with all of them. The witty banter is hilarious and the various scenarios that the characters find themselves caught up in will having you rolling! You can't turn the pages fast enough to see what these guys will come up with next. It is pranks galore!! The chemistry between Simon and Sydney just jumps off the page at you. These two are fire when they get started.

I really enjoyed this book and I think it is amazing for a debut novel. I can not wait to see what the author has in store for book 2, which is expected to release in September! Bravo Ms. Vallis
 


We all have choices in life… paths to take… roads  to follow…. It’s on those journeys that fate finds us and takes us where we need to be… Without a second glance we can be taken away from things we know… "people we love" and given a new life... 

One that can change us… save us… 


What would you do if fate dropped you at a crossroads? Would you go back? Or would you run like hell the other way?


For years my life was in a state of Adjournment… 
Fate had constructed a plan to push me away… to save me…
There was a danger I never knew existed, one I had never sensed. 
My family positioned themselves around me. 
Like Hanging Pawns, they shielded me from it and I lived blissfully unaware… until now.
Now, I know there are rules to this game...
Sacrifices to be made in order to get to End Game.
What would I Sacrifice for one more moment... one last look? Touch? Kiss? 
The answer is simple… 
Everything.

My Review:
5 stars
Sacrifice is book 3 in The Fate series. You must read Adjournment (book 1) and Hanging Pawns (book2) to be able to follow whats going on in this book. This story is focused on Simon and Sidney but all of the characters are present in this book as well. With that being said, these books are a must read!

Simon and Sidney's story is amazing. I was hooked from the very first chapter. The first two books left us with so many questions. While most of them were answered in this book, naturally you are left with even more questions by the end. And lets talk about the end....that cliffhanger. I had to double check to make sure i didn't crack the screen on my kindle when i sent it flying across the room. I tried to turn the page and to my dismay, there were no more pages to turn. How could you do that to us, Mrs Vallis???????

The character development is on point and Mrs Vallis did a phenomenal job with this series. Sidney is such a loving and selfless character. Simon wasn't my favorite hero but he really grew on me with this book and I love him now. You really see how much Simon cares for her, and learn that after all of these years, she was never far from his heart or mind. The two have grown so much, both as individuals and as a couple. The witty and sarcastic dialogue and the scheming that goes on with this group of friends will have you laughing so hard you cry. If that isn't enough to keep you turning the pages faster than you'd like, the suspense and romance will surely do it for you.

I fully enjoyed reading this series and luckily for me, End Game is available now so i will be diving into ASAP. I cannot recommend this series enough. Mrs Vallis has created a wonderful fictional world to get lost in. This is one series you do not want to pass up!

Once upon time, there were two girls living their lives completely unaware of one another and the dangerous game they had been placed in… 
Until Fate found them… 
Fate saved them, made them stronger & with time, Fate brought them together to become friends rather than enemies… 
Until a cruel Queen made her move, threatened the Knight, 
And an innocent Pawn was sacrificed… 
Now the game is in our hands… 
Fate might have set us up for this… but we control the moves now… 
And we have our own plan. 
Revenge. 


"And these two between the sheets, good gracious. It was HOT HOT HOT! The chemistry was undeniable. It sizzled and poured off of the sheets. Simon was a beast." ~ Renee Entress Blog (Adjournment)

“Emerysn Vallis has an incredible writing style, the story comes out smoothly and flawlessly with perfect attention to detail. Her characters are amazing as well, the interactions between all of them are hilarious and the banter is perfect.” ~ The Truth About Fiction Book Blog (Hanging Pawns)

"Emersyn Vallis has done a wonderful job on the Fate Series. Adjournment, Hanging Pawns, and now Sacrifice are definitely in my definite recommend list, and re-read list for 2014/2015" ~ Battery Operated Book Blog (Sacrifice)

"PERFECT ENDING! PERFECT! Of the hundreds of ideas running through my head about how this amazing series was going to end, this was by far the best possible ending and exceeded all of my expectations!" ~ Swoon Worthy Books (End Game)
Adjournment
Hanging Pawns
Sacrifice
End Game










Emersyn Vallis is a first time author with Adjournment being the first book in the Fated Series.

Mathewson’s ‘Neighbor from Hell Series’ and Tara Sivec’s ‘Playing with Fire Series’ that she came up with the idea to fuse comedy and suspense together and her passion for writing was born.

Ace by Lyra Parish

Except of Chapter 1:

Disclaimer: this is subject to change.
Tonight I would fuck the blonde in the front row. The set was nearing the end and I could feel her gaze peeling off every piece of my clothing. I liked when a woman knew what she wanted. Blue and green lights flashed over the stage then washed across the crowd. When we made eye contact again, her tongue traced the outside of her plump bottom lip and at that moment I knew she was DTF. Her being down to fuck made this so much easier but then again, being the lead singer of the Band of Brothers made panties magically melt. I'd be her fantasy for the night. This tour wasn't like the others because this time everyone wanted a piece of us as if our success happened overnight. But we earned every fucking opportunity we had. I would say given but that's bullshit. My brothers and I worked hard for every small and large success we had because that's our nature. We were raised to not take shit for granted and to work hard. Being assholes just came naturally but we knew to give respect where respect was due. Each show from Florida to California, all the way to New York was sold out and that felt incredible. The drums beat on as I screamed out the next few lyrics. "I won't let the world decide. I'll die before that happens." The drums stopped and the distortion was cut leaving a melodic strum of Nicolas's guitar. The lights faded when walked off stage leaving the crowd to themselves. Ian, Nicolas, and Liam had huge smiles covering their faces as they chugged the water the technicians handed us. This would never get old. Moments like this were the ones we lived and worked for. Once the chanting and clapping started, the four of us walked back onstage and gave the fans what they wanted, an encore. Green and yellow lights flashed over the crowd and smoke hovered at the bottom of the stage. We played three more songs and the people sang and swayed to the lyrics and music. Some jumped up and down, feeling the full beat of the drums while others banged their heads. The feeling of having thousands of people chanting my words would never become real. More often than not, I felt like I was in a dream, one that I never wanted to wake from. During the last song, I pointed to the blonde who continued to visually rip my clothes off with every little blink she took. By the way she was dressed in a tight pink shirt and little bitty skirt, I knew she wanted to be seen. She could have possibly had this night planned from the beginning. Randomly, I chose a few others from the crowd to join us, to dance in front of our audience, to feel the temporary power. It was something I did every show, every tour. It was a habit of sorts. Security helped the girls climb on the stage and they shook their asses in those little pieces of material that were supposed to be skirts. It always made women feel special when they were with the band, and I loved giving them just a little taste. A person doesn't fully understand performing live until they have had the opportunity to look out past the stage lights and see the people. Before the song ended, the technicians led the girls' side stage as cannons of confetti shot from the floor. Different colored pieces of paper glittered everywhere. When the final song ended, my brothers and I walked side stage where girls anxiously waited us. I smiled, popping an eyebrow at my chosen woman for the night, and she instantly came to me. I wrapped my arm around her shoulder and hers hung on my waist. My brothers stopped in the green room with the other girls, but Blondie and I walked to the bus. "I'm Lindsey," she whispered in my ear before we reached the end of the hallway. I smiled at her and pushed open the exit door. Groupies and fans waited near the bus and as soon as we walked up they rushed it. "I'll be out in a bit," I said, smiling at them with pearly whites. "My brothers are coming out that door over there. Really soon." I hated to out their exit strategy, but I wanted to take my time burying my dick deep inside Misty or Christy or whatever the fuck her name was. It didn't matter. Names never did.

Rebecca Stanton was an unemployed college graduate looking for excitement. When she stumbled on a new job opportunity with a cruise line, she packed her bags and never looked back.

Marco Puglia worked very hard to climb the corporate ladder with Sunset Cruise Lines. Offered the Cruise Director position on their newest ship The Horizon, he couldn’t wait to revolutionize the cruising industry.

Rebecca loved her new job and impressed everyone around her, including her new boss Marco. Getting hired by Sunset Cruise Lines finally gave her a goal to work toward. The only problem she needed to hurdle was Marco Puglia. Marco felt adding Rebecca to his staff was both the best and worst decision he'd ever made. In all of his years, he’d never met anyone with the tenacity, drive, and motivation that Rebecca had. He'd also never met anyone who affected him as much as Rebecca did.

On the one hand, an attraction like theirs only came around once in a lifetime. On the other hand, a career opportunity like theirs only came around once in a lifetime.

One romantic cruise ship, one hot summer, endless wanton possibilities.

Love on The Horizon is a contemporary romance novella meant for readers who are 18+ due to mature content.
