SYNOPSIS:

Julian

I’ve come to understand that I’ll always find her. She’s my north star, my sense of direction. In her, I’ve found my home. She tells me I saved her. But the truth is, she saved me.

But nothing good can ever last. Andra’s keeping secrets. She’s holding something back. I’m trying, desperately, to anchor her. To let me in, to let me help.

But will all my efforts end up with a ghost of a girl I love?

Andra

I’m used to disappearing. Vanishing into thin air, without a trace of who I’ve been or where I’ve gone.

But it’s so much harder to do with a broken heart and no hope for a happy ending. Sometimes the only people who can put all the pieces of us back together are the ones we least expect to. That’s what Julian did for me.

Julian found me. But now, all Six wants is to keep me locked up, away from the world, away from the Monster. I can’t live like that. It’s not living at all. Because I still have unfinished business.

And I’m going to make sure the Monster gets what’s coming to him.

Classic Denzel Washington and another good director outing for Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, anyone!!)

Some of my favorite lines perfectly delivered by Mr. Washington:

“Change your world.” His advice to a troubled young lady. 

“Old man got to be the old man. Fish got to be a fish.” His take on the classic novel, The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway. 

“Hit it on something stupid.” As to why he had cuts and bruises on his knuckles. 

“When you pray for the rain, you have to deal with the mud, too.” Great advice to anyone. 

“Progress, Not Perfection.” Advice to his coworker. 

Loved this movie.

Have you seen the The Equalizer? What was your favorite part? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo next month?

Have a great October, everyone!

ABOUT THE BOOK:



*This novel contains coarse language, violence, and sexual themes.

Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she’s rehabilitating herself as a “normal” mother and mathematics teacher, it’s time to stop dreaming about slicing people’s throats.

While being the wife of Melbourne’s leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she’s determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover’s daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia’s back. It isn’t long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.

But is protecting the kids really Sonia’s motive?

WHAT DO YOU HOPE FOR?

No one ever expected much from him.

Joshua Elijah Griffin, IV is on his last chance. A stint in rehab and a transfer to a new school has scared him into putting his life on track. He’s determined to live up to his family’s expectations, but on the first day of class, Josh meets a girl, and he knows his father won’t approve, but in Carrington, he sees a kindred spirit. He’s willing to give up everything to be with her.

No one ever thought she was special.

Carrington Olivia Butler is ready to shine. Always in the shadows of her siblings, she goes away to college to break out of her shell. All Carrington wants is to feel special. Josh’s attention is exactly what she craves, but their intense and sometimes volatile relationship is more than what she bargained for.

Josh’s demons return, and Carrington’s feelings fade, but both aren’t ready to give up hope. They give their love one last shot to survive, but hope, may not be enough.

**This book contains adult subject matter. Not intended for young readers.**

Favorite Line #1:

I deleted the message. I lay there looking around the room, and although the door and window were open, I needed to get out. I stuffed the phone in one of my bags and pushed myself off the bed and headed to the nursery to see Jack. I thought the sound of his voice would evoke some emotion, but I was numb. I needed to feel something. My lack of emotion at Josh’s apology scared me.

I was so ready to move on.

Sometimes the right move is to move on.

Hope for Her – Top 10 Favorite Lines – #2

FAVORITE LINES

Line #2: 

When I returned, I found her sitting on my bed, giving me a look. I loved that look. It was her I am so turned on by you right now, look.

Her eyes grew dark, and she pulled her shirt off over her head. Her hair fell across her shoulders as she grinned up at me. I wanted her.

Things between Josh and Carrington are good … sometimes.

Do you have a look? Come one. You know what I’m talking about.

Sugar’s not so sweet and secrets can be deadly … especially with matters of the heart

Sienna’s bestie, Harper warned her not to intern for famous bad boy artist, Casper Mason. After all, he just fired Harper who helped Sienna get the interview. But the moment Sienna sees Casper—or Caz—sweaty and practically shirtless and swinging from chains while he works on his sculpture, she’s hooked. He’s the richest, hottest artist in New York, and he lives in the fabulous Williamsburg Sugar Factory. But he’s also an incorrigible game-player, who seems to relish challenging Sienna’s loyalty with a string of unsettling tests.

She knows she should get away fast. But by the time Sienna sneaks into his locked storage room and begins to unearth his dark and terrifying secret, she’s fallen way too hard for the handsome, charismatic Caz.

Teaser:  

“You’re assuming I’m over here because I went to the interview.”
“Well, did you?”
I avoid Harper’s laser sharp glare. “Yes.”
“Wh-yy?” She draws this out into a plaintive wail.
“It’s not as if you didn’t know he was a maniac, Harper. You’d already told me he fired a few other interns before you.” I don’t wait for her to answer before plunging on. “And you worked for him, knowing that. You recommended I try to get an internship, knowing that.”
“True, but I learned more about him today.”
Suddenly interested, I turn and study her. “What?”

Hope for Her – Top 10 Favorite Lines – #3

Through out the month of September I’d like to introduce you to the characters and my Top 10 favorite lines in Hope for Her.

 

FAVORITE LINES

Line #3: 

I watched her walk toward me. Her face hid in the shadows, but she slowed down and hugged herself. She sighed when she saw me.

She continued, slow and steady. She walked right up to me. I stood up and leaned on the back of my car. I crossed my arms over my chest. Her face became visible as a car from the other direction illuminated her tear stained face.

My heart dropped, and I held my breath. She was devastated, and I did that to her. Her wet face scrunched in a painful flex, and her lips quivered. She turned away, and I started to reach out for her. As my right hand grazed her left arm, her right hand connected with the side of my face.

Whack!

I don’t condone violence, but sometime men do some stupid stuff. At least, Josh realized he messed up … at this moment. 

Ladies, what’s the stupid thing your guys’s done? Guys, what’s the stupidest thing you have done?
