Maybe he really did feel bad for the way he’d treated me.

Yeah, maybe he did.

But did that change anything?

He’d still treated me poorly and who was to say he wouldn’t again?

Just because people felt awful for doing something didn’t mean they wouldn’t repeat the crime.

The real problem was my attraction to him.

I could admit it.

I was attracted to the son of a bitch.

There was something deeply wrong with me that I could be attracted to a man I didn’t even like.

Turned out that lunch with my colleagues was a terrible distraction idea. Because Henry was dining at The Bristol Lounge with none other than Caine Carraway.

“Maybe we should go somewhere else,” I said as we stood in the lobby outside the restaurant. Henry hadn’t spotted us yet.

Barbara frowned. “This is your favorite place. You love the Bristol Burger.”

I did love the Bristol Burger.

And for the first time in weeks, I was hungry.

Dammit.

No man was chasing me away from my goddamn burger.

“You’re right.” I nodded, sounding more assured than I actually felt. “But I’ll walk on your left side.”

My friend eyed me in confusion as I huddled at her side, trying to hide behind her as the host led us up the few stairs onto the main floor of the restaurant and right past Henry and Carraway’s table near the bar area, to a larger table at the back of the restaurant. As far as I could tell, he hadn’t spotted me and there were now pillars between us that I could hide behind.

Relieved, I slid into my chair beside Barbara.

“Drinks?” the waiter asked.

We’d finished giving him our orders when the sight of Henry Lexington walking into view around one of those aforementioned pillars and toward our table made my pulse skitter.

He gave me a soft smile as if we hadn’t been enemies up until twenty-four hours ago. “Miss Ray, what a pleasant surprise.” That soft smile grew into a roguish grin. “Are you stalking me?”

I arched an eyebrow, wondering what the hell kind of game he was playing now. “A burger. I’m stalking a burger.”

“The burgers are very good here.”

“Mr. Lexington,” Barbara said beside me, sounding delighted to see him, and awfully familiar. “What a pleasure to see you.”

“You too, Barbara. And please, I’ve told you before—smart, beautiful women should call me Henry.”

I didn’t know what to do first: be surprised they knew each other or gag at his flirting with her.

“You know each other?”

“I know everyone worth knowing.” He winked at Barbara and she tittered like a schoolgirl.

Dear God.

And then I was the focus of his attention. He leaned against Andrew’s chair who was, as always, oblivious to anything but himself. “So this burger … will it put you in a good mood?”

“Excuse me?”

Those blue eyes were too intense, much too intense. “A good enough mood to agree to have lunch with me tomorrow?”

I was going to kill him.

How dare he put me on the spot in front of my colleagues, in front of Barbara! What? Did he think I’d be civil to him because we had an audience? I scowled. “No.”

“Are you seeing someone?” he persisted.

“No, she’s not,” Barbara interjected, giving me an “Are you crazy?” look. “And yes, she’s free for lunch tomorrow. You can pick her up from the station at one.”

“Fantastic.” Henry gave her a grateful, gorgeous smile before turning it on me. “See you tomorrow.”

He was gone before I could even get past the shock that had sealed my lips.

* The Icon Trilogy * Cover Reveal

Title: The Icon Trilogy
Author: Vanessa Fewings 
Genre: Erotic Romance

 
The Chase (The ICON Trilogy, #1)
Will she risk it all for a priceless desire?
A rising star in one of London’s top art investigation firms, Zara Leighton’s talent for seeing deep into paintings is in her blood. She’s chosen to help track down Icon, an enigmatic international art thief whose heists are methodical, daring, baffling. To Zara the case is maddening—bordering on an obsession.
She finds distraction in the chiseled form of top-shelf client Tobias Wilder, a magnetic American billionaire who demands her expertise, her discretion—and her secrecy. Wilder doesn’t ask questions. He gives orders. His gaze alone ignites her deepest fantasies. And his touch…
The sudden whirl of exclusive exhibitions and decadent parties that Wilder introduces her to is a potent aphrodisiac. But surrender soon becomes tinged with suspicion. Is Zara’s tryst with Wilder the real thing…or just a convincing forgery?
 
   

 
The Game (The ICON Trilogy, #2)

Can she outwit the ultimate master in a timeless game of seduction?
Chasing Icon, the world’s slickest art thief, was the most seductive thrill of London art investigator Zara Leighton’s career…until the clues led her to the man who holds command of her body and heart, Tobias Wilder, an American billionaire with charisma to spare. Her duty to capture him is complicated by the intensity of their passion. Her will to end their connection is tinted with red-hot need to never let him go.
Tobias’s heists are about more than money and ego. His plot to orchestrate the perfect deception in Los Angeles is destiny. No one—not even Zara—knows the depths of his motivation. And no one suspects the truth behind a single artifact that holds the secrets to an entire civilization. Forced to deny one calling to satisfy another, he knows something must be sacrificed: his code of honor or his loyalty to Zara.
 

 
The Prize (The ICON Trilogy, #3)
A life she never imagined…and a love she can’t deny
Zara Leighton has risked everything to track down the elusive art thief known as Icon, only to discover him already in her arms: the billionaire tech genius—and her lover—Tobias Wilder. Zara wants to resist Tobias, to deny his fiercely sexy smile and their sizzling chemistry. But instead, she agrees to help him one more time.
Tobias will do anything to protect Zara, but he needs her for one last ultimate job: a job that will clear both their names and grant them a future together… if they can pull it off.
The danger is real. The stakes are unbelievably high. But when it comes to love, there’s only one prize that matters…

Review: The Edge of Always

#TheEdgeOfNever5Anniversary

Moments

The Edge of Always
The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was a little scared of what I was about to read. I liked the originality of the first book and the end was great! So how this one is going to end?

They kept trying to have a different life experience, spontaneous they say, but it’s never easy and after everything that happened, they deserved some happiness, hell they deserved it all, I wished!

I knew something wasn’t right, before I started reading it, oh something painful was coming. What tragedy could possibly happen? … It’s hurts.

This particular part of the book seemed to go very slow and it frustrated the heck out of me. If I had some pills to sleep I would had taken them. I kept wishing Andrew to play something cool on his guitar so I could sing along.

Camryn falls…

The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Had a tough weekend, so I did need to smile, funerals and stuff… nevermind!

Camryn and Andrew’s story was a great escape!

Started listening to the audio book version, what’s new? 🙂

Camryn’s journey was something!

The first impressions reminded me of a movie called Before Sunrise that will remain has one of my beautiful memories.

At first the reason for leaving everything behind wasn’t enough for me, just getting away, after one week at her new job, when her mother was trying so hard to get her one… a fight with a best friend? Best friends that trample all over you? At twenty years old…really? (Maybe I’m a little more exigent nowadays).

Lost her “partner” in crime, ok that’s something… but without a job, no dreams, no money… yes, if it was real, that would be…

* The Redemption of Emma Devine * by Nancee Cain

From Nancee Cain:

This is Book 2 in the Pine Bluff Novels. Contemporary romances that are stand alone stories. However, characters from other books will make appearances. (This is my favorite kind of story… you can revisit your favorite characters but NO CLIFF HANGERS!) So visit Pine Bluff, Alabama: where everyone knows your name and your business!

After the upheaval of being dumped by his girlfriend, David Patterson leads a quiet life as a high school teacher in the small Southern town of Pine Bluff, Alabama. Soon to enroll in seminary, his dreams are within his grasp.

But a chance encounter with Emma Devine changes everything. She’s on the run, desperate, and surviving by any means possible. His pastor’s heart longs to help her—and the rest of him is rather intrigued as well.

His random act of kindness brings them together, but Emma makes an unfathomable decision—one that threatens to destroy two lives, though her intention is to save one.

Four years later, Emma returns, seeking redemption. But can David—whose dreams took a very different course after their last meeting—forgive her and risk losing everything?

My Review

The Redemption of Emma Devine (A Pine Bluff Novel)The Redemption of Emma Devine

by Nancee Cain

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

My first impression:

David is a Knight … hard to find these days… without a shinny armor.
He doesn’t need it, he fights and help others with a powerful weapon: Kindness.

A chance turns Emma in his way. A Knight never leaves his lady in distress.
He can see good through all the bad in the world.

Terrible decisions and misunderstandings make this story unexpected but very captivating,
not simple yet many hard situations were handled with deep care. A very satisfying read.
I love how Nancee writes.
Waiting for the next.
