Frantically, I searched her face until I reached her wounded eyes, and my insides knotted with uncertainty. I claimed her lips with mine, fitting perfectly together. Her mouth opened, and the salty taste of her tears forced reality into the room. As much as I wanted the kiss to linger, I had to make her understand how much I wanted her, and only her. Reluctantly, I backed away.
“I’ve loved you since we were kids. I wanted it to be me instead of that dick, Mark James, on your first date. I’ve wanted you so fucking bad, but I never told you how I felt because the thought of losing you, even as a friend, terrified me.”
Her green, shock-filled eyes pooled with tears again. I did the only thing I thought would make her believe me. My hand wrapped around the back of her head, fingers weaving through her hair. I inched her closer until I felt her soft lips against mine.
The kiss started in a slow exploration. The moment my tongue met hers, her breath caught and her body shivered. My heart raced like a jackhammer when her fingers spread through my wet hair and the kiss deepened.
Damn she felt good, and tasted even better. Her lips were soft, but eager for more. Her hair felt like smooth silk beneath my hand. I wrapped my other arm around her waist and pulled her tighter against me, only it wasn’t enough. I wanted more.

Now on to my 5 Alien Star review of Adrenaline by Sunniva Dee!

Holy shit this book is amazing! Sunniva totally outdid herself with Adrenaline! This story is golden! I mean you feel so much: Passion, Raw Emotion, Humor, Sadness, and Love. Man, love and heartache drips from every page! Cam is playful and totally reminds me of a big teddy bear. He’s not extreme sports, like jumps without thinking. He scared the crap out of my a few times. Ingela is so freaking funny! She’s from Sweden and her English slang is so off at times you can’t help but laugh your ass off. Together these two steam up the page. Their chemistry is off the charts, but so is Ingela and Bo…. Enter another hottie! There isn’t really a love-triangle here, but, um, yeah. I can’t give anymore details or it’ll give the entire book away. Sorry, charlie 😉 You experience so many highs and lows, but it’s worth every bit of your time.

So I always relate my stories with songs, and two came to mind while reading Adrenaline: Florida Georgia Line’s Sipping On Fire (Cam’s song) and Taylor Swift’s Style (Bo’s song)! I’ve added each video below ❤


Life’s the shit!
Chicks squeal over how wild and yummy I am, play their silly games trying to tie me down. But I’m free as a bird, doing what makes life life: kicking extreme-sport-ass!

I base jump, snowboard, bungee jump. I do anything for the rush.

Then, Ingela blows into town for college—a cool Swedish blast of trouble. Foulmouthed and runway-gorgeous, the girl seeps in like poison and melts the freaking brain.

To Ingela I am what chicks were to me: pastime, leisure, entertainment, pleasure. She’s killing me, and I’m digging it. There’s a new rush in town! Yeah, I hunt down my highs, and now the chase is on. I’ll catch her soon enough, just, what’s the deal with her ex?

Florida Georgia Line’s Sippin’ On Fire

Firm breasts Adrenaline teaser


With Ingela, sex is a dance. A slow tango where skin flows over skin. It is slick readiness, a quiet welcome. It’s smooth, warm, right, and all wrong.

On and off. On and off. Again, she’s wrecked with grief. It’s a reminder of how I destroy her, how crushed relationships shouldn’t be revived.

We’ve done this for years, now, but clearly we’re in for more.

Taylor Swift’s Style

Austin Book Fest Fun!

This post is late, so sorry! Austin was an absolute blast, and I can’t wait to head back next year 😀

The ABF/Vixen weekend started at Creme Bakery & Cafe in Austin, TX. A Fun night with great food, drinks, friends, and a BOOK EXCHANGE! Vixen love was everywhere! I was so amazed by how far and wide some of those ladies traveled to be there! On to the exchange… Gone With the Wind is a classic and my fav, and someone wrapped that baby up for the exchange. Say what?! Had to take a picture with the all-time classic masterpiece, even though I wasn’t the winner.


Not complaining at all! I was gifted with Lead Me Not by A. Meredith Walters! Cannot wait to jump into that lovely book!IMG_4566


However, (sadly) I wasn’t the lucky person who left with Gone With the Wind. BUT! (sliver linings) Cristal with Three Little Birds Book Blog did (lucky)!


Here’s what Cezanne with BCS Reviews and Yamara with Panty Dropping Books Blog nabbed at the exchange!

(The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken)


(The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski)


The next day was THE day! (OMG) Let me start by saying I’d NEVER been to a signing (other than my own, last month in Austin). I was so star struck. Before we left for the airport to pick up Cristal and C, I walked past Jennifer Freaking Armentrout. Holy crap! A little known fact about me: So when I get nervous, I laugh (a lot) and I either can’t form a complete sentence or I ramble with the inability of shutting up. When Yamara said, “Hey. There’s Jennifer, go say hi.” I totally laughed, turned and walked away. *sigh* No lie! I learned later that evening that Cristal was Jennifer’s assistant during the signing. More on how that went later.

My first stop at the signing was with Katie Ashley!

IMG_0182 and later in day I won an ARC of IMG_0190Holy crap, that was awesome.

Sadly, I didn’t grab a picture with Molly McAdams, but I did get Talking Chances signed by her and Chase Grayson. Before I move on, I’ve got a question about Chase. So I thought he was on a cover of her book and I (like a creeper) kept looking at him and wondered which book? Is he on the Trusting Liam cover? Regardless, I was super excited to see Molly again. Wait, back up (I’m so all over the place and hope I don’t confuse anyone). Friday night Molly was at the hotel and she totally remembered meeting Yamara and me for dinner the month before! She even asked about the signing. I can’t express how super sweet she is. Thanks to Molly for being so nice even if I seemed like a complete spaz 😉



On to the next excitement! While getting a few signatures for friends, I won an ARC of Come to Me Recklessly by A.L. Jackson, who was so down to earth and nice, as well! More books to read and authors to love!




During this time, I was gathering enough nerve to meet my “THE AUTHOR” of the event… Jennifer Armentrout. I hadn’t worked up enough balls yet, so I detoured to say hi with Cezanne, who helped out Katy McGarry. And OMG! I LOVE her books. I nearly went blank and laughed, but took in a deep chunk of air and was actually able to talk… without rambling. Win, win! Katy chatted about a new book set to come out and her characters from Crash Into You and Take Me On. WOW! Pushing The Limits started my love for Katy’s books and every story after is just amazing as the first! 😀


So, I’d worked through my star struck-ness (is that a word?) and I jumped into JLA’s line. *I’m gonna do this* But before I got up to her table, I start talking to another author, Rachel Hollis. She asked where in Texas I was from, which lead to her book! Rachel’s MC from Party Girl lives in Odessa, TX (which is next door to Midland)! She mentioned a few characters who were from Midland, too! Super cool so I had to buy her book, right?! Totally meant to be 😀


After meeting Rachel, Jennifer Armentrout’s line started to really move! I met a few readers and talked books while we waited. Then the time to meet Jennifer arrived. I smiled and was trying really hard not to blubber, when Jennifer said, “I’m sorry, I can’t sign these for you.” WTH?! I then started stumbling over my words while trying to form a sentence. My face was SO red and then she laughed, along with Cristal. Jennifer (freaking) Armentrout said, “She told me to give you a hard time.” We all laughed and I proceeded to tell her that I was like RIGHT beside her yesterday and she was like, “Oh,yeah. I think I remember that.” Die! I told her she was my favorite author, but the rest was a blur. Cristal captured the moment with a pic! OMG! How awesome 😀


The last signature I needed was Colleen Hoover’s, and the line was out the door. Me along with a new groups of awesome ladies I met worried we wouldn’t get our books signed. However, Colleen and Tarryn walked the line and signed everyone’s book! I could imagine how exhausted they were. All the authors stayed way past the designated end time. My shoulder was killing me from hauling all those books around, but it was totally worth it!

On to the Author Meet and Greet! My first excitement was with Colleen Hoover! OMG! So flipping exciting 😀


I didn’t think the night would get much better, but it did! While waiting in line for a drink, I met the author of Brightside, Kim Holden! Brightside had recently been added to my TBR list so I was (again) excited to meet the author in person. The moment of excitement hit the roof when I, ME, was noticed as an author! Convo: You look so familiar.

Me: Um, IDK, I’m on FB. (I always feel weird saying I’m an author. Like, I’m not even CLOSE to as awesome as the authors at ABF). So, I swallow and said, “Well, I’m an author.”

“OMG! Yes! Someone recommended YOUR book to me!”

ME: *jumps up and down, squealing like a maniac* “OMG, are you serious?! That is so exciting! Can we take a picture together? *I had to capture that moment forever*

“YES! “

This picture became my ALL-TIME favorite of the weekend. I will NEVER forget that awesome and wonderful feeling when meeting readers. Thank you for everything ❤


So, Charlene Zapata, friend and author of Sublime Wreckage and Sublime Resistance was at this event, too! How cool. I ran over and to tell her what had just happened. She laughed and was like, “Hey. This is Tammara Webber.” Guys, Charlene is all nonchalant when she introduced us. WOW! I LOVED her book Easy!


To celebrate how great the day/night was, Charlene, Amberly, Yamara, and I headed to 6th street.


Do y’all know who the actor, Adrien Brody is? Well, I got to meet him:D Just kidding, but Michael looked so much like him. He’s even an avid reader 😉 We chatted books, of course 😉


The weekend was a hit! Texas Tech was at the hotel recruiting students, so I HAD to snap a picture under the Go Tech balloons. Tristan and Elle would’ve been proud! IMG_0207

Before heading out for good, Distraction was left for someone to find.


Heather Huff, congrats and hope you enjoy the read. The weekend was filled with such great energy, and I’m so glad to have made new pals during my stay. Have a great week, everyone ❤

❤ Tristan Quotes/Teasers ❤

“I’d like to say I love you and mean it. Only, that isn’t enough to describe what I feel for you… how much you mean to me, Elle.”

“Water’s boring.” Elle traced a finger along my jaw, her passion-filled eyes trained on my lips. “I’m not looking for boring tonight.”

The anticipation of wanting her jumped to fucking needing her as she rolled her hips into the pressure against my zipper. “What is it you’re looking for?”

Elle bent forward, lips teasing mine, and whispered, “You.”

❤ Elle Quotes/Teasers ❤

“I didn’t think I could fall more in love with you, but you’ve proven me wrong, Tristan Wade Daniels. I love you.”

His lips curved into a wide smile. “Say it again.”

I stepped on my tiptoes and leaned in, my lips a breath away from touching his. I whispered, “I love the way my body craves more of you. I love the way your hands feel while touching me. I love the way your lips taste…”

My eyes darted to his lips, and then back to his eyes.

“I love how much you care. I don’t just love you, but everything about you. I always have, Tristan. I always will.”

He looked up and our gazes met. He was a beautiful mess, and I loved him so much, but the pain he created… well, I didn’t think I’d recover.


We didn’t talk much during the drive back to our hometown, but words weren’t necessary. The soft smile on Tristan’s face as he drove with his left hand while holding mine in his right screamed louder than any words ever could. He was mine.
Turning to watch the scenery pass by, I let my thoughts drift back to the start of this year. At the beginning of the semester when Tristan told me about his engagement to Kellie, the psycho, I couldn’t breathe from the disappointment crushing my chest. Topping that, he also divulged he’d transferred to Tech, making sure my life remained as miserable as possible. Even though I loved him, seeing Tristan with another woman tore me to pieces.
Before their relationship ended, thinking we’d ever find our way to one another seemed impossible. So, what did I do to get over my hot, football star, best friend? I dated someone completely opposite of Tristan… Eric Green, a handsome baseball player. Eric was super sweet, but at the end of the day he was never who I wanted.
I didn’t intentionally set out to hurt anyone. The way I strung Eric along, knowing I was in love with someone else, left me feeling like a self-centered jerk. Ironically, when Tristan was injured, our relationship started to come together for us while Eric and I fell apart.
Who’d have thought a broken collarbone and a concussion would’ve made us get our heads removed from our asses. But God, the brunt trauma Tristan suffered was bad. Just thinking about it brought tears to my eyes. I shifted in my seat, removing myself from the past, looking forward to our future.
Peeking over at Tristan’s profile, my chest tightened. The fact that he was able to pull off looking so incredibly sexy that early in the morning awed me. The gritty stubble shadowing his strong jawline and the way strands of hair framed his warm eyes quickened my pulse.
Tristan glanced my way and grinned. Lifting our hands, he brushed a feathery kiss across my skin. “What’s got you so quiet, Spud?”
My knuckles tingled where his lips touched. “Oh, you.”
His smile deepened. “Well, then carry on.”
I fought to keep my eyes open during the rest of our drive. Tristan ran his finger along my cheek, the enamored glint in his eyes made my insides jump.
“You look tired. Get some sleep.” Those perfect, full, kissable lips formed into a sexy, hell-bent grin. “You’re going to need plenty of rest.”
He tore his eyes away from me and back to the road. Sliding the back of his hand down my arm, he then laced our fingers together. “We’re leaving after dinner tomorrow. We haven’t finished making up for,” he turned back to me and winked, “lost time yet.” Tristan squeezed our hands, sending the normal thumping inside my chest into hyper-drive.
I stretched out the soreness from my arms and legs. After the early morning surprise in bed, we woke up and finished another round of lovemaking in the shower. Years of listening to Alyssa prattle on and on about her sexual escapades, I finally understood her, um, enthusiasm. Speaking of which, she was going to flip the next time I talked to her. Man, I missed our late night, or morning talks, although being with Tristan felt right. Perfect.
Tension pulled at the corners of his eyes.
I squeezed his hand. “Hey, what’s wrong?” I balled my other hand, worry settling in my shoulders.
He brought our joined hands to his lips and kissed the inside of my wrist. “Nothing you need to worry about.”
Um, I don’t think so. I attempted to free my hand from his, but his hold remained strong. I gave up. “I can take it, whatever it is. Just spit it out.” My stomached knotted, betraying the lie.
“I’m telling my parents about us.” He glanced down, and the tension cornering his eyes moments ago fell. The side of his mouth pulled up in a cocky grin. “I’m almost hoping my dad kicks me out.” He winked. “Then I’d have an excuse to stay with you.”
I frowned and pulled my bottom lip between my teeth. Shit. His dad hated me. As much as I loved Tristan, I didn’t want to be an added cause to their problems, especially since Tristan and his dad never got along in the first place.
I shook my head. “No, I don’t want to ruin this. We’re together so there’s no use in creating a potential problem between you and your family. I love you, Tristan. I’m not going anywhere. Spend time with your parents and we can tell them about us once we’re back at school.”
Tristan gazed ahead, concentrating on the road in front of us. He remained silent for quite a few minutes, making me worry my bottom lip even more. Finally, he glanced over at me.
“No, I’ve waited to tell them you were mine for years now. No way am I going to pass up the first chance I get in order to make my dad happy.”
I opened my mouth to argue, but he cut me off.
“I’m not playin’, Spud.” His eyes darkened and wrinkles crested his forehead.
Stubborn ass. “All right, fine. I’ll leave my window unlocked,” I grinned, raising a brow, “but only if you’re lucky.”
Tristan chuckled softly, resting our hands in his lap. With his attention back to the road, I closed my eyes and prayed nothing terrible would happen between him and his dad. I used to think Mrs. Daniels didn’t approve of me, but after Tristan’s stay in the hospital, her behavior had changed. She’d been nice. Maybe his dad would do the same.
My throat dried–this time from not knowing if I’d be able to see my sister, Heather, this year. Hopefully this Christmas would be different for both our families. Tristan and I were due for a little peace.
Losing the battle with my eyes, I ended up falling asleep the rest of our way home. Tristan reluctantly dropped me off at my mom’s house. Once my bags were unloaded in my room, he kissed me. His kiss lingered, making my legs weak and my heart ache when the sweet embrace ended. Intensity and heat blazed in his eyes when he backed away.
Clearing his throat, he said, “I’m having a hard time leaving you.”
