Review: When You Come Back to Me by Emma Scott (Lost Boys #2)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Valentine PR.
"I don't know how I made it through all the days until this one."
Awestruck. I am awestruck by this magnificently written story of love, acceptance, and family. When I speak of love, it isn't just the romantic kind, and when I speak of acceptance, it isn't merely the kind one hopes for from others. As for family, not all those who are tied together by blood are the ones we consider family; sometimes, the strongest of bonds are the ones forged between strangers who share a kinship--those who are lost and find not just themselves but far more when their paths intersect with life-changing individuals and they have experiences that change the trajectory of all of their destinies.
When You Come Back to Me is the second novel in the Lost Boys series from the brilliant creative artist that is Emma Scott. Over two-thirds of the book takes place over the same timeline as the series starter, The …

Release Blitz: Out of Love by Jewel E. Ann

Out of Love (Jack & Jill #4) by Jewel E. Ann Release Date: September 27, 2020
About Out of Love Conspiracies. Corruption. Serial killers. You name it—I'm fascinated by it. My mom always blamed my overly curious and highly suspicious mind on my dad.
My incredibly overbearing dad.
Mr. No One Is Good Enough For My Daughter has been terrifying my dates since I turned fifteen.
College is my chance to be free from his control and date any guy I want.
I'm absolutely certain he would hate Slade Wylder—almost as certain as I am that I do too.
Since when have I shied away from trouble?
Slade fascinates me. He lives in a house I'm certain is haunted. His dog is trained as well as any guard I've ever seen. Rumor on campus is that he deals drugs. It would explain a lot.
But it doesn't explain why he saves me from my darkest moment.
It doesn't explain why I can't stop thinking about him.
And the explanation I finally discover is far more dangerous than any rumor.

Out of Love is a st…

About Feinted Love A gambit for love and a half-baked revenge plot; one hot Seattle summer…
Arnie One minute I’m minding my own business enjoying the sunshine, next I’m wearing my iced coffee.
I’m going to teach Tobias Barrington a thing or two; the first: you don’t always get what you want. I have no idea what the second is, I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Falling in love with Tobias is not on my list of lessons. Tobias I've never forgotten Arnie Ferguson, or the night we had together. When I find him again, I want to get to know him—as more than a friend.
I may come from a wealthy family; but I know better than most that money can’t buy happiness. But brash, socially awkward Arnie Ferguson makes me think happiness is possible when you let your heart chose.

Feinted Love is a first person, dual POV, following Arnie Ferguson and Tobias Barrington as they do their best to awkwardly fall in love. No c…
