*~* Cover Reveal ~ Forever Down Under by S.M. Phillips *~*





Forever Down Under by S.M. Phillips


Serie: Down Under #3


Blurb

In the last few months, Jess has been faced with more obstacles than she ever thought possible. Heartbreak, loss and betrayal to name just a few. Will her drama fuelled life finally settle into the happy, care free one that she deserves or is someone hiding and waiting for the perfect opportunity to ruin it all?

 Life for Max hasn't exactly been plain sailing either. Now that he finally has someone in his life that means more to him than anything he has ever known, one thing is for certain, he's not going to let anyone get in the way of his new found happiness, no matter what the cost.

Demons are released, pasts are exposed and their future together is only what they make of it.

Excerpt

"I've got a few errands to run Angel, but I promise that I'll make it up to you later."

"You bet you will, Mister. How long will you be gone for anyway?" I ask, already missing him.

"I'll only be a few hours, tops. Hey, I was wondering if you wanted to go and see your mum? We could go tomorrow, or even later this afternoon?"

I'm hesitant for a moment before I gain enough strength to reply. "I'm not sure, Max." Uncertainty is evident in my tone, even though I'm trying my best to hide it. My chest feels heavy at the mere mention of my mum. I'd love nothing more than to go and see her, to wrap her in my arms and tell her that everything will be okay. I'd love to see that she's getting better, to let her know that even after everything that I'm still here for her, but I can't. She won't take my calls and down right refuses any visitors.

My only comfort right now is knowing that she's in the best place and receiving the best possible care, and it's all thanks to this devilishly kind and handsome man stood beside me. I'd refused any kind of offer from him previously, because the way I see it, she's my mum and I should be the one to make sure she has everything that she needs. I guess her stubborn gene runs prominently in my veins. I remember clearly in my mind the way Max looked at me, held me close and said, "Angel, please. Please allow me to do this one thing for you. Let me get her what she needs. I don't have a mum to look after anymore, Jess. I guess I never really have. All I ask is that you let me help you. I want to help you."

As much as my stubbornness and pride screamed out for me to say no, and as much as I wanted to say no, I couldn't do it. I suddenly found myself unable to say no to him and the pure, raw sadness that swam in his eyes had me aching for him, aching for his past and the demons that still currently haunt him to this day.
"Okay," I whispered. It was all I could manage, but for Max, it was enough. I just hope that one day I'll be able to tell him just how grateful I am.


Bio

Welcome to the crazy and hectic life that is me: A fun, loving mum of one special little boy, girlfriend (I'm sure it should be wife by now!!) and an overall crazy, happy go lucky girl from England.

I have always had a passion for reading and writing. Wherever I am, my eBook reader is never far behind, along with a mug of coffee.

I found myself wanting to write from a young age. I have quite a few hidden stories on my computer somewhere. Maybe I will have to dig them out and play around with them at some point.

Escape Down Under (Down Under 1)

For Jess Townsend, life is about to get complicated.

Following on from her split with Josh two months ago, Jess has thrown herself into her work full throttle, making sure that the one good thing in her life remains the same.

Suddenly she is called into an important meeting at work. Absolutely petrified that she is about to lose her job, she does the only thing she knows how. Panic on the inside and walk through it with her head held high on the outside.

Jess soon discovers she is being offered a once in a lifetime opportunity, but will she take it?

After dealing with an ex who can't let go and a broody mysterious Adonis who won't accept no for an answer, maybe the opportunity of an escape has arrived at the perfect time.

What does fate have in store and what obstacles will be thrown her way?

 

Fallen Down Under (Down Under 2)

"Fuck." I slam my fist into the desk before me and feel nothing but rage. I need to go after her. I need to explain. "But isn't this what you wanted?" The voice inside my head whispers. "Isn't this a nice easy way out?"

Everything Max has done has always been at a cost to others around him. He wasn't about to make that mistake again. No longer will his selfish ways punish those close to him. Sometimes it's better to have had and lost than to never have had at all.

Finally after what felt like forever, Jess was getting a glimpse of control over her life again and allowed her defences to come crashing down, only to have what it guarded to be crushed once again. Now, on the other side of the world away from her friends, she doesn't know what to do.

Should she stay or should she go?

Is it too late or have they both fallen too far into something that is completely out of their depths?



OBSESSION #1

Obsession knows no bounds...

Anna Jameson can't wait to escape the hellhole that her cousin has left her in. Desperate to escape her past, the idea of moving to stay with Holly whilst she got her head together sounded like the perfect plan... Until Holly upped and left, leaving Anna to pick up the mess that she left behind.

Jensen Blake knows what he wants and will not be told otherwise. Obedience and control are what he knows best. With demons of his own, he has spent most of his adult life traveling from place to place the moment things started to become predictable.

When Jensen and Anna are pushed together, an instant dislike simmers between them. Anna hates bad boys. She has witnessed enough of them to last her a lifetime.

The sexual attraction between them is evident but will that only make things harder for them both to handle?

Killshot by Aria Michaels
Icarus Series 1



When seventeen year old Liv Larson and her brother are sent to separate foster homes, she gives up on her old life, her old friends, and her faith in God. The only bright spot in Liv’s new life is her energetic and obnoxious foster-sister, Riley. When Riley convinces her to come to the rooftop party to view Icarus, the up-coming solar flare, Liv meets Zander. For the first time in months her troubles take a back seat...that is until what should have been a small flare, erupts into a full blown solar storm.

Now, Liv and her rag-tag group of not-quite friends must find a way to survive the sweltering heat, lingering radiation, and the mysterious virus that appears to have found an ideal host among their ranks. Alliances will be formed, and battle lines will be drawn as Liv and her new friends set out on a perilous journey to save their loved ones, find answers, and reach salvation.
But, something sinister awaits them in the dark—and it’s undeniably connected to Liv.
Will Liv be able to keep her promise and reunite with her brother? Will her brave determination be enough to save them all from a rogue government, a terrifying virus, and the things that go bump in the night?

Or was Icarus, indeed, the KILLSHOT.

Synopsis

Astrid loves her new life in Tuscany. She is free from the restrictive boundaries of pack life and able to make her own choices. When her alpha’s brother moves into the flat next to hers, it sets a series of events into place that will change her life forever. Should she flee or face her enemy?
 Kendrick can’t believe it when he runs into Astrid in Tuscany. The fiery wolf has always held a special place in his heart. Can he prove to her that he’s different than his brother? Or will he lose her forever?

Excerpt

Astrid sprinted through her house like a mad woman. She was running late, of course, when wasn’t she running late? She overslept all the time. It was the insomnia. Wolves were nocturnal and no matter how much her human half wanted to go to bed, the animal within almost always refused. Hence why she was running late for the third day in a row.
Frazzled, she pulled her long hair up into a messy bun.  Satisfied she no longer looked like she’d just rolled out of bed, she pulled on her cardigan. Grabbing her car keys, she rushed out the door. Her boss was nice and not too strict, but she still liked to be on time. The quaint little cafĂ© she worked at was a tourist hot spot, and she met all sorts of interesting people. By no means was it a glamorous job, but it paid the bills and she enjoyed it.
Rushing out to her car, she fumbled through her keys for the unlock button. She was so caught up that she didn’t see the approaching man until it was too late. Astrid ducked to the right, but not fast enough. Her chest collided with something solid. The breath whooshed out of her as she connected against a firm hard torso. Her car keys flew out of her hands falling a few feet away on the sidewalk. "I'm so sorry," she gasped as she bent down to retrieve her keys.
"My apologies too. It's not every day I get the pleasure of running into such a…" he trailed off as she stood up and their gazes met.
"Oh my God," Astrid muttered as she stared into Kendrick Johnson's brown eyes. Horror filled her as a million questions raced through her mind. The most important one being, what the hell was he doing here? While Kendrick had never personally done anything to her, it was his brother she was running from.
"This is an interesting development," Kendrick smirked at her. He winked at her. "Oh and most people call me Kendrick, but I could be your God."
"What are you doing here?" Astrid glared. Why was he here? At her flat? It couldn't be a coincidence could it? Of course not. He was here on his brother’s behalf. Here to bring her back kicking and screaming to Killian. No. That didn’t seem right. Kendrick and Killian weren’t exactly close. Or they hadn’t been when she’d left. Had something changed? If memory served, Kendrick wasn’t too popular with anyone in his family. Maybe her cover wasn’t blown after all. She could only hope.
"Well as a matter of fact I am staying in my flat," Kendrick said indicating her absent neighbors home.
"That is yours?" she stammered as she stared up at the large flat. Impossible. How could she have been living next to Killian’s brother and not have known it?
"It is," Kendrick beamed. His amber eyes danced with mirth. He’s enjoying this. "It looks like you and I are going to be neighbors. This little trip is getting better by the minute," he continued excitedly.
"Well this is just perfect. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm running late for work," Astrid flustered, glaring at him for a long moment before darting towards her little blue car.
"I suppose I'll be seeing you around," Kendrick called after her.
"I'd really prefer if we didn't," Astrid hollered back over her shoulder. She climbed into her car and quickly locked the doors. Jamming her key into the ignition, she shifted into drive, and mashed her foot down on the accelerator. What was she going to do now? Was Kendrick here for her? Or did he have his own agenda? Damn it, she was just starting to like Tuscany too.
She chanced a glance in her rearview mirror. No one was there. Gripping the wheel tighter, she took in her surroundings. Everything appeared to be normal. Maybe running into Kendrick was a freak occurrence. Maybe she didn’t have to leave. Astrid turned down the road to work. The first thing she saw out of the ordinary, she was hightailing it out of Tuscany.

Another great story from Bethany Shaw, I have read a lot of this authors books and she never disappoints. This was a nice short story. Quick read but had me hooked from the start. I loved the characters and was happy they got their HEA. I'm anxious to read the next book in this series to see what she comes up with next. I was given an ARC for a fair and honest review.
~*~
Received this as a free arc in exchange for an honest review. It was a little to short for my taste. But it left you hanging at the end wanting more. And wondering what is going to happen to them and the pack they are on the run from. Can't wait to read more from this author and this series.
~*~
A beautiful quick read. Astrid never thought she,d love the brother of th cruel alpha she was running from. Little did she know the brother was also on the run. After saving her life she comes to believe he may not be the enemy after all. They fall in love and live HEA. I loved it perfect for a quick cold winter afternoon read. I loved it.
