Tara’s 4***** Review


“He didn’t want to have a doctor taking care of him. He hated lying to his best friend. And most of all, he didn’t want to be dying because his heart was pumping incorrectly.”
Living in the shadows of his friends, Gears has always wanted to find love. Not with the women whom only want security, but with his soul mate. Luna has been in search of her mate, her only quest is to cure him. Upon meeting Gears, the sparks are instant , but can their connection withstand the roadblocks in their way?
“He had been filled with lust. Not just filled; the desire for Luna had overflowed into his entire being. He’d been drowning in it. He didn’t know how else to describe what had happened.”
I thoroughly liked Grinding My Gears!  It was an excellent read, filled with action, steaminess and twists and turns. C.M. Moore really blended this book well with 1:05, and also created new standout characters and moments in Grinding My Gears. 
“Thank you, God. Only in his wildest dreams had he ever thought to be with her again, especially like this. And his heartbeat had a strong, steady rhythm. He took a deep breath. She saved him.”

Why would I want to read the Elkridge Series?  Each book in the Elkridge series is a piece to a puzzle—a suspenseful mystery involving the murder of a small-town sheriff. You get six contemporary romance books to figure out the mystery and a bunch of happy ever after (HEA) endings. Two novels in this fiction series—Blinded and Orphaned—are award-winning romance books.

Where is Elkridge, Colorado?  Elkridge exists only in my mind. On any given day, I can stop at River Creek Café for Jenna’s fresh baked cinnamon rolls, or shop for a birthday present at Mara’s Blooms, or get my nails done at Kym’s nail salon. Sitting in the park eating lunch, I can watch the kids play and hear the latest gossip from neighbors. Later, if I want, I can stop at Mad Jack’s to hear a local band play and get some dinner. Elkridge is a great small town where the sun shines 360 days a year and people do their best to make ends meet.

Would you tell us about your writing process?  It takes me awhile to write each stand-alone story because I am passionate about creating the very best stories for my readers. These contemporary romance books have complex plots and sub-plots and include suspense romance threads, with deep emotional women’s fiction elements, humor and even a bit of quirkiness. I’m so excited to see the 5-star ratings because it means I’ve created the ideal mix to provide readers with a few hours of enjoyment.  




Review Giveaway

Tara’s 4**** Review

Love is blind to race, color, sex and age. Love wants what it wants, and you can’t always stop it or change its course. 
“Dread welled in her throat again.  The closing of the front door sounded like casket top clicking shut. Second Time Around, her beloved business, was doomed.”
Gwen has always been independent, long forgetting the family that was never there to support her. When life in Elkridge turns upside down for her, learning to accept help is hard for Gwen. When Dale comes back to Elkridge, the last thing Dale expects is to fall for his daughter’s friend. Can Gwen learn to rely on someone, and let her walls down? And can Dale learn to love again?
“The heat from their bodies sizzled. She hadn’t intended to hug him. She’d promised herself she wouldn’t touch him.” 
Lyz does such a great job at writing each Elkridge novel, having them flow so well together. The love and emotion in Exposed is real, raw and realistic.  The forming relationship between Gwen and Dale is incredible, I want more!!

“At the door, she turned, and lifted onto her toes, and pressed her mouth against his. The gentle tenderness sparked more than a few nerve endings. He leaned in, unable to resist, and ran his tongue along the edge of her bottom lip.”


EXPOSED: Frequently Asked Questions: (FAQ)

How did the book EXPOSED come about?
Both Gwen and Dale were secondary characters in previous books. My editor, Faith Freewoman, insisted that I put the characters together. My first thought was, “no, there is too much of an age difference. What would they have in common?” However, I’d recently made the decision to put more diversity into my books—younger, older, black, white, purple…it doesn’t matter. I want to create complex, diverse characters, so I took on the challenge of creating a story for Gwen and Dale.
Why did you make Gwen’s parents wealthy?  
Years ago, I saw Into the Wild, a movie about a young man rejecting his wealthy upbringing to live a simpler, more authentic life. It’s a true story, and if you haven’t read the book, or seen the movie, I would recommend it.  When I started thinking how Gwen’s a part of Elkridge, I asked myself how her life is/or would be affected by Sheriff Sam’s murder, and wham, there was her story. A woman wanting a normal life, away from greed and corruption, finding happiness in Elkridge, Colorado. How cool is that?
Why are EXPOSED and SPURNED novellas? Why not write full-length books?
Three reasons. First: Writing shorter pieces is hard. Trying to write a full story in such few words is challenging, but I wanted to grow as a writer and take on that challenge. Second: I wanted to honor and meet women’s needs. There are women all over the world wanting short, fulfilling reads. I thought about working women riding the train or taking a bus to work, or those who want good lunchtime reading. I considered new moms wanting an escape while their child is breastfeeding or napping, or they want to pass the time while waiting to pick up their children from school. With these shorter books, I celebrate our differences, and allow all readers, no matter where they are, the chance to be swept away into another world.

Synopsis

Escape, it was the reason James Riley flew to the other side of the world. His family believed he’d left for career progression—an opportunity he couldn’t pass up, and his lie was so good even he believed it. Australia was perfect for him. It helped him forget his one and only mistake. A relationship was the last thing on his mind because he was never going to fall for a woman again.

Ariana Scott thought she wanted a Dom. That choice cost her both blood and tears. A year later, she was still trying to put the pieces of her life back together. Her interest in the sexy British guy was too soon, too fast, and because of her job, off limits. But the lure of James Riley was a temptation she couldn’t shake off.

When a safe vanilla fling turns into a relationship, her career, her family, and her lifestyle threaten to tear her world apart. She’s fallen hard and is prepared to put everything on the line for James. He makes her question everything she thinks she knows about herself but there is only one answer when casual sex becomes more than desire.
