About UNKNOWN (Unknown Trilogy #1):

Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts.

When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are compromised. Without leadership, the nation is split between paralysis and panic, but Amber isn’t one to hide or watch helplessly. She’s determined to put her nursing skills to use, despite the danger, even if it means working alongside the man she can never have.

In this first installment of NY Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins’s debut New Adult series, a frighteningly realistic apocalyptic America is brought to life, entwined with searing romantic tension that will leave you eager for more.

About UNREST (Unknown Trilogy #2):

Being on the run in the desert means food and sanctuary are hard to come by, but Amber Tate and her crew are not about to give up. Not after having so many of the things they love brutally ripped from them by an unknown enemy who sent their world into the apocalypse.

Survival takes precedence, but once safe shelter is found, their guards fall and the emotions they’ve been holding in are finally released. Anger, insecurities…lust. In their tight quarters, Amber, Rylen, Tater, and Remy can’t escape it. The past must be faced, and passions run even stronger in the darkest of times.

In the midst of unrest, their worlds are rocked again when they discover the truth about the war that’s ruined their lives. They thought finding out the enemy’s identity would give them the edge; instead it’s revealed terrifying dangers they never thought possible.

Excerpt from UNREST, book 2: Amber
and Rylen

                It took
half a minute for Rylen to open the door. He was in boxers. That’s it. And it
did nothing to slow my heart or breathing. I tore my eyes up from his
waistline, over the pepper tattoo on his pec, and to his face.

                “Hey,
Pep.” He shifted to the side. “You okay? Let me just…uh…” He glanced behind him
and the absolute worst thought struck me.
                “Are
you alone?” I whispered.
                “Yeah.”
He cocked his head at the fear in my voice. “I’m just gonna grab some pants. Come
on in.” Oh, thank God.
                I put
my hand on the door but gave him a second to go inside. When I went in, he was
stepping into track pants. I leaned against the wall, more nervous than I’d
ever been, as he sat on the edge of the bed, legs wide, and gazed up at me.
                “What’s
up?” he asked. He sounded tired.
                Say it. Say something. “I know it’s not
my place to say this, but…I think you should be careful of Linette.”
                He
grasped the back of his neck and stared at the floor. “Nothing is going on with
us—”
                “I know.”
I rubbed my face. Every word I’d planned to say sprinted out of my mind and
left me standing there completely empty headed. Awkward, expectant silence
stretched between us.
                “I
don’t think she understands or respects where you’re at, and what you need.”
                 He looked at me then, with such suffering in
his gaze, and asked, “Where am I, Pepper? What do I need?”
                The
anguish there made me nearly slide to the floor. I closed my eyes against the
wave of emotions and forced myself to speak.
                “I
think you’re hurting and you need time.”
                His
eyes dropped to the floor again, silent. Was I wrong? Was Linette right, that
he needed her affections to help him heal?
                No,
damn it! I could not stand the thought of her ever touching him again like
she’d done tonight. I was going to comfort him my own damn self. I took shaky
steps forward until I stood between his knees. I saw his shoulders hitch with
an intake of air, but he didn’t raise his head. I moved forward until his
forehead was pressing against my stomach. Then I slid my hands around the back
of his head and held him there.
                Before
I could be self-conscious or wonder if I was forcing affection on him, his arms
went around my back and pulled me closer, his face pressing against my abdomen.
I felt his warm breaths through the cotton of my shirt as we held one another
in the most tender moment I’d ever experienced with him. I knew in the way he
pressed into me, pulling me tighter, his fingers rubbing into my skin through
the shirt, that this was exactly what he needed.
                I held
him, and held him longer, and felt him, and though it might not have been
sexual to him, it was the most sensual moment of my life. My entire body went
taut and heated at the feel of his hands on my back. His face pressed to me. My
hands in his hair.
                Footsteps
and voices coming up the hall shattered the delicate moment. I moved away from
him at the sound of the door unlocking with a click. New York Josh was talking
loudly about the Yankee’s baseball record; apparently Tater had tried to bust
his balls. They both stopped and shut up when they saw us—Rylen still sitting
on the edge of the bed, and me now standing a couple feet away.
                Josh
hitched a thumb over his shoulder. “You need us to find another room?”
                “What?”
Rylen said. “Man, shut the fuck up.”
                “All
right.” Josh winked at me. “My bad.”
                Tater
looked between the two of us.
                “I was
just leaving,” I said. “Good night.” I gave them an awkward wave and shot a
glance at Rylen as I turned to leave. His elbows rested on his knees, watching
me go, the heat of his gaze steaming me from the inside out.

About UNDONE (Unknown Trilogy #3):

Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been taken over, but it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the one precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.

Remy Haines is a lover, not a fighter, so when she finds herself in enemy territory, expected to feign allegiance while gathering intel for the rebel cause, she’s never been more out of her element. Tensions only increase when her feelings for Jacob “Tater” Tate won’t go away, and the enemy’s leader takes an interest in her. She’s torn between what her heart wants, and what she knows she should do. As for what her body needs…well, it’s always had a mind of its own.

USA Today and New York Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins, brings you the gripping, sensual conclusion to her apocalyptic trilogy.


Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen, marred by one ugly fact; it’s under enemy control. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been captured, and it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the only precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.


Remy Haines is a lover, not a fighter, so when she finds herself in enemy territory, expected to feign allegiance while gathering intel for the rebel cause, she’s never been more out of her element. Tensions only increase when her feelings for Jacob “Tater” Tate won’t go away, and the enemy’s leader takes an interest in her. She’s torn between what her heart wants, and what she knows she should do. As for what her body needs…well, it’s always had a mind of its own.


My Review: Love Love Love! As usual, Wendy wrote another winner! 

From the start of the series these characters were just being kids to now escaping from the enemy’s attack. Watching grow to this point has been amazing and each one of them was written perfectly. There is no reason you couldn’t love these characters. 

How do you face this apocalypse  after everything you love has been ripped away? When right now Amer and Remy are in two different places? While we read the two POV we learn of what is going one with them. Each having to take on roles in order to do what is right. Even if it makes faking it to make it. It was hard on Remy to have feelings for Tater and yet when the enemy wants you…..what can you really do? Go with it, or against it? 

Together they will see an ending that no one expected. It was a surprise that I was happy to get! A series to love and an author to follow for life. I can’t wait to get my hands on Wendy’s next book!!!

The Second Window


The Second WindowErica Kiefer
Published by: CTP Pulse
Publication date: December 5th 2017
Genres: Romance, Suspense, Young Adult

As her senior year flies by on cruise control, seventeen-year-old Olivia Cole yearns for excitement—something her upscale private school no longer provides. Her job as a grocery store bagger isn’t much help…until the day she has a bizarre exchange with the cagey town recluse. When the woman abruptly surrenders to the police, Olivia feels compelled to dig deeper into her perplexing story. But the investigation stalls when Olivia receives another piece of news—Andre Steele, the golden boy of Westmont and her previous tormentor, has unexpectedly returned from his four-year stay in Brazil—and the whole school is buzzing! All at once, Olivia’s dull and predictable life is uprooted, and she wonders if “boring” was so bad after all.

EXCERPT:

A stranger to me, I knew nothing about Jodie except that she lived on the outskirts of town. People referred to her as a hermit because she rarely ventured from her home, and when she did, it seemed only long enough to purchase groceries. She was nobody important to me—just the occasional name carried through the wind when there was nothing else to talk about. However, like clockwork, I bagged her scant items every Thursday at four PM. The odd interactions I’d have with the woman would sometimes be the most interesting part of my shift at Wayland’s, a discounted store that served as employment during the summer, and now into my senior year.
I met her eyes again, which seemed to never leave mine, peering at me with an intense silence that I couldn’t explain. She didn’t frighten me, exactly. On the contrary, there was a meekness about her that suggested her gentle nature. While she hardly smiled, she didn’t have a mean face. It was more like the bland expression of a person who had little to smile about. Yet I wondered at her reservation, certain she had more to say than she ever allowed.
Jodie’s slender fingers pulled cash from her wallet and she handed over the bills. When she turned to me once more, her teary eyes alarmed me. She swallowed hard, like she was washing down emotions that rose against her will.
“Are… are you okay?” I asked, hesitating as I placed her grocery bags into the cart. Her hand fell swiftly on top of mine, squeezing my palm. Startled by the sudden physical contact, I jerked my hand away. I regretted my actions the moment her expression shifted.
Eyes wide, she shook her head, her mouth opening as though horrified by her behavior. A tear slid down her cheek, and she brushed it away in haste. “I’m sorry.” Sniffling, she snatched her three bags from the cart and scurried toward the exit. “Hey!” I called after her. I exchanged a look of confusion with Marlene before following Jodie to the automatic sliding doors. “Wait! It’s Jodie, right?” She paused, sniffing once more. She looked back at me over her shoulder, eyes red and sorrowful. “Um, can I help you to your car? I really should have double-bagged that one.” I pointed to the bulging bag containing the heavy soups, grasping for an excuse to stall her from leaving.
The tiniest smile crept along the corners of her mouth. Her green eyes brightened beneath the sheen of tears. Relieved, I smiled back. Her next words fell from her lips in a low, quiet tone. “You take care of yourself.” Then she walked out into the cool air.
I stood there perplexed, watching this strange woman escape to the parking lot. Jodie had been a consistent presence in my life for months now, a once-a-week visit in which she spoke no more than a murmured, Thank you. Why did I feel a sudden permanence to her goodbye?
A familiar female voice called out from behind me. “I need a bagger on lane three please!”
I rolled my eyes and flipped around to see my friend Jordyn standing at the other end of the store, hollering into her cupped hands. I glanced at Marlene. My grey-haired co-worker pushed out her lips with a frown, throwing a hand onto her plump hip. I cringed and held up my index finger. “One minute,” I mouthed, and hurried toward Jordyn before she could garner anymore unwanted attention from my employers.
“You know Marlene hates when you stop by, right?” I said to my best friend. She beamed confidence at me with her wide smile, her lips stained in a bright coral that I could never pull off. Though only one-eighth Native American, the tan skin she’d inherited helped her get away with wearing colorful makeup combinations that I would never attempt on my fair skin. Jordyn also relished in the theatrics that I shied away from.
“I’m a paying customer,” she said, grabbing a box of powdered donuts off the shelf. She held them up to make her point, waving wildly at Marlene’s scowling face. Jordyn raised her voice again, like she was hollering at the deaf elderly. “She’s just gonna bag these for me and I’ll be on my way!”
I shook my head at her. “You’re going to get me fired.”
“You’ve got other problems to worry about.” Jordyn put her hands on my shoulders, and spun me around.
“What am I looking at?” I asked, not seeing anything out of the ordinary. Leave it to Jordyn to make me guess, rather than just tell me. She rotated me forty-five degrees.
“Not what. Who.” She dropped her voice to a whisper. “Past the cashiers. Aisle twelve.”
I loved her to death, but sometimes her games were a bit much. “Jordyn, come on—” I stopped, suddenly very aware of just who she was pointing out to me. I caught a glimpse of his smile first, gleaming brightly against his bronzed skin—a deeper brown than I remembered, and a compliment from his Brazilian mother. I’d almost missed him, hidden behind the cluster of kids clamoring for his attention. But then I heard his laugh, boisterous and infectious. Unique.
And stirring memories I resented.
I crossed my arms over my black apron. “What is Andre Steele doing back in Arizona?”
Jordyn inhaled noisily, letting out her breath as she spoke. “I don’t know, but Brazil sure did a nice number on him.”
I scowled and nudged her with my elbow.
“But we still hate him,” she corrected, giving a nod of solidarity.
“Of course we do.” We watched him disappear down aisle nine with his posse. Another burst of laughter trailed behind him, coupled with giggles from the girls hanging on him and the other guy slapping Andre’s back like they’d never heard someone so funny.
“Then again,” Jordyn added, “Four years can change a person. Maybe he’ll surprise you.”
I stepped away from her, returning to my position at the end of the register. I grabbed the boxes of toothpaste and floss sliding past Marlene and tossed them into a fresh bag. “I never liked his surprises.”

EXCERPT:

Did he ever think of our night together in the tent?

I did.

Without a doubt, I’d been tipsy, but I remembered everything. For so many years there was tension between us. It started as annoyance, my best friend’s older brother who always acted like a douche. Then, after he joined the Army and came back to visit, it was like he’d matured just enough to lose that obnoxious edge and I realized for the first time how sexy he was. I wanted him. Back then, pursuing guys had been my vice, but I knew Amber might be weirded out by it.

When I thought back to that night at the nature reserve…it was really our last night of true freedom and happiness. It’s strange to think we were happy, especially since our parents had been taken prisoners at that point, and we’d watched his grandfather be killed, but we still had hope. We thought we’d get our parents back. We didn’t have any idea just how horrible things were. Or that aliens were real.

I rubbed the prickly hairs on my arms down and took another bite. I didn’t want to think about that night in the tent. The sound of Tater’s laughter. His wide smile. The way the neck of my loose shirt had slid down while I was arranging my sleeping bag and laughing drunkenly. His warm mouth as he kissed me on my exposed shoulder…when I turned to him, Tater had never looked more serious. It had been a look of question, like, “Is this all right?” And I’d responded by sliding my hand behind his neck and pulling him down on top of me.

Now he never smiled or laughed.

“How are things in the fields?” I asked him.

Tater gave a single shrug, not looking up or saying a word.

“If you’re wondering,” Linette said with spite, “Things are amazing with the livestock. I can fill a bucket with milk in record time, and helped a mama swine birth seven piglets yesterday. I’m a regular fucking Farmer Jane.”

Before I could respond, Tater whispered, “I need you to get us a radio.”

Our end of the table went silent and still. I glanced at the guards, who were surveying the room with bland expressions, then I forced another bite into my mouth. When I looked up again, Linette had that crazed look in her eyes, staring straight ahead. Her strategizing look.

“Are there cameras in the room where you teach?” she asked.

“I don’t know,” I whispered.

“How can you not know?” she asked, annoyed. “Look today.”

“Okay, but there’s no way I can take anything. I’m never alone.”

“The guards cannot be staring at you the entire time.” Linette nodded to the bag at my side. “Slip it in there.”

“Remy,” Tater said to his bowl. “If you can get your hands on anything electronic, we can try to use it at night to send or receive signals, and you can return it in the morning.”

My stomach was roiling at the idea. There’s a reason I didn’t join the military. Stealth and danger were not my things. But I was the only one with access to the palace.

“I’ll look,” I promised.

“Have you been alone with him yet?” Linette asked.

My innards seized at this, churning my breakfast. I felt both of their eyes on me as I stared at the pasty contents in my bowl and minutely shook my head.

“Make it happen,” she demanded.

From the corner of my eye it looked like Tater was holding his spoon so hard he might bend it in his fist. I reached out with my leg as far as I could under the table until my foot touched his. The contact, even through our shoes, sent blood whooshing to every nerve in my body. I watched as his hand relaxed on the spoon, and he pressed his foot to mine. Our eyes never met.

We were quiet as we finished.

“Did Remy tell you her fantastically stupid idea to try and teach the girls in our room after hours?”

Tater’s eyes flew up to me, scorching me, and I looked at the guard again. When I found one of them staring straight at me, my demeanor changed to demure and I gave the guard a soft smile before looking back down. From the corner of my eye I saw Tater’s hands clench into fists again, and he brought them under the table to his lap.

“Rem…” Tater’s voice was filled with warning.

“It’s fine,” I whispered, grabbing my tray and standing. “Don’t worry.”

I wished Linette hadn’t told him that. As if he didn’t have enough crap on his mind. I sent her a glare, which she returned, and I caught one last look of Tater’s stiff form, hands in his lap, knee bouncing and jaw locked. I wished so badly I could hug him and try to calm him. But all I could do was walk away.

A banished princess.
A deadly curse.
A kingdom at war.

Wil Heidle, the only daughter of the king of the world’s wealthiest nation, has
grown up in the shadows. Kept hidden from the world in order to serve as a spy
for her father—whose obsession with building his empire is causing a war—Wil
wants nothing more than to explore the world beyond her kingdom, if only her
father would give her the chance.

Until one night Wil is attacked, and she discovers a dangerous secret. Her
touch turns people into gemstone. At first Wil is horrified—but as she tests
its limits, she’s drawn more and more to the strange and volatile ability. When
it leads to tragedy, Wil is forced to face the destructive power within her and
finally leave her home to seek the truth and a cure.

But finding the key to her redemption puts her in the path of a cursed prince
who has his own ideas for what to do with her power.

With a world on the brink of war and a power of ultimate destruction, can Wil
find a way to help the kingdom that’s turned its back on her, or will she
betray her past and her family forever? 


My Review:
DNF.

After 50 pages in, I just gave up on this one. The story was confusing, it took
a while and there were pieces still missing. It made the story hard to follow.
Will wasn’t the best character either, couldn’t get to a point where i could
like her.

Overall this book didn’t do it for me. Maybe Lauren’s next book will be a
better hit to me.

Once Upon a Time…

In the kingdom of Tranen, a king makes a promise to his dying wife that he’ll
only remarry a woman who possesses her golden hair. In time, the king’s eyes
are turned by his daughter. Realizing her father’s intentions, Princess Aurelia
tries to trick him by requesting impossible gifts: dresses created by the sun,
moon and stars, and a coat made of a thousand furs. But when he is successful,
Aurelia sacrifices her privileged life and flees her kingdom, disguised by the
cloak and a new name, Allerleirauh.

She enters the safe haven of Saarland der Licht, where the handsome and gentle
Prince Klaus takes her under his care. Hoping not to be discovered by her
father’s courtiers, Allerleirauh tries to remain hidden under her new identity
when she finds unexpected love with Prince Klaus, even though his arranged marriage
to the princess of a neighboring kingdom approaches. Risking everything,
Allerleirauh must face her troubled past and her fears of the future along her
journey to self-acceptance in this triumphant retelling of the classic Grimm
Fairy Tale. 



My Review:
LOVE! 
Allerleirauh was a princess by another name. But she left
that life behind when her father the King noticed her. Noticed in her what he
saw in her mother and the promise he made her. When he got her all the gifts
she thought to be impossible, she couldn’t stay. 
Right now she’s under the care of Prince Klaus. She hopes to
remain there and be safe from the King. What she didn’t expect was to fall in
love with the prince. Nothing that is happening is easy. Her hiding away, her
feelings for one who belongs to another, and her emotions are everywhere. If
she wants to be free and happy then she needs to face everything. This is
risky, but one she is willing to take. 
Allerleirauh is a wonderful character. The story was built
perfectly and you’ll be sucked in right from the start. This is a must read for
all!

But there is no magic in the Overrealm. Forsyth refuses to believe that anything other than mundane coincidence is at work—until Elgar’s stalker leaves him a message too eerie and specific to ignore. Now, he has to face the possibility that Pip’s dreams and Elgar’s fears are connected . . . and that maybe they weren’t the only ones to escape the pages of The Tales of Kintyre Turn.
And if that’s the case, it’s going to take more than a handful of heroes to save the day this time. It’s going to take an army. Luckily, Reed fans are legion.
A stunning conclusion to the series, The Silenced Tale is a genre-bending whirlwind that breathes life into the idea that the power of story lies not just with the creator, but with the fans who love it.
