Review

Let me just say I'm a huge Erin Noelle fan! When I heard she was working on Surviving Us I couldn't help get excited. She sent me an advance copy and I couldn't wait to dive into this book! It was amazing! I love all of Erin's books, first falling in love with the book boyfriend series. This to me takes me back to that certain feel. You won't put this one down! 

Davis and Bristol both are trying to overcome horrible accidents that occurred in their lives. Going through the motions of each day is what they both seem to be doing until they end up at the same retreat to both get help with moving on, and overcoming their past. This is a survivor retreat where everyone can relate to each other. 

Relationships are not on the table for either of them, but you know just when they're are about to give up on everything fate might step in and change their plans. 

Bristol doesn't trust and she isn't looking to settle down. Davis a playboy has a hard time opening up to anyone, let alone a complete stranger. The attraction is undeniable and the more they try to fight it, the more things seem to heat up! I loved both characters. You will want them both to move on from their painful past. 

I loved both the characters! Your heart will break and you will feel every emotion. Can these two overcome their pain and let each other in, or will their past be too much to bare? Can they learn to live again? Or is it simply too late to try? Can two broken hearts really be pieced back together after everything they have been through? Read it! You won't be sorry. 

I loved this book! Erin did an awesome job making you love the characters, the story is believable and you will feel every emotion from start to finish! I give it 5 gold shiny beautiful stars!! Thank you Erin for another amazing story!

Excerpt
IT TAKES EVERYTHING I have not to smile as I watch Bristol throw her little fit. Knowing that she came by my place last night, and she’s jealous because she thinks I was there with another chick, makes my ego swell and my cock hard.
Once she’s finished digging her finger into my stomach and calling me a dick—which I usually am, but surprisingly don’t want to be one around her; I refuse to ask myself why this is—I do exactly what I’ve yearned to do since the moment I laid eyes on her. I claim her perfectly pouty lips with mine in demanding, caveman-esque fashion, hoping every person on this beach understands the statement I’m making.
I’m not sure if her ‘friend’ from last night is even out here, but I hope to God he is, because as a guy, I know with certainty the way he looked at her wasn’t how a big brother should look at his little sister. Ever. The way his eyes roamed up and down her body, how his hand splayed out on her bare back, holding her close to him, and the way he called her ‘baby girl’, all said plenty about his true intentions. I’m not usually one to cock-block, especially knowing the reason he’s even here is because something really fucked up has happened in his life, but I’ll be damned if he’s getting anywhere near Bristol while we’re here. She’s mine.
Her lips part with no resistance as the tip of my tongue requests entrance, finally allowing me to savor the taste of her sugary sweetness. My hands glide around her jaw to the back of her neck, fingers threading through her silky hair as I continue to explore her mouth, our tongues curling around one another’s in an effortless, synchronized movement.
She moans into my mouth, a direct command for my cock to stand at full-attention, and suddenly, I no longer want these other people around us. They’re the only reason I’m not laying her flat on her back in the sand right now and devouring every inch of her body, like I’d promised her I’d do. And based on the way she’s digging her nails into my shoulders and not-so-subtly pressing her body into mine, I’m pretty sure it’s what she wants too.

TOUR - Sacrifice (Fate #3) by Emersyn Vallis

For years my life was in a state of Adjournment… 

Fate had constructed a plan to push me away… to save me…

There was a danger I never knew existed, one I had never sensed. 

My family positioned themselves around me. 

Like Hanging Pawns, they shielded me from it and I lived blissfully unaware… until now.

Now, I know there are rules to this game...

Sacrifices to be made in order to get to End Game.

What would I Sacrifice for one more moment... one last look? Touch? Kiss? 

The answer is simple… 

Everything.



Chapter 1
Ignorance isn’t always bliss…

     How did I get here? Not this specific seat exactly… I mean here, in this part of my life, where I never would have considered being. I know the events that led me here—my sisters moving back, my parents’ vow renewal, and a weekend that I could have practiced better control.
     Could have.
     I won’t deny it to myself that I wanted it to happen. I won’t deny it to you either…but Simon…
     Well, he doesn’t need to know the truth. He’d be smug and pompous…or should I say he’d be himself. Simon was right about one thing, though. He said nothing about this game would be simple, and so far, it isn’t. If it was, the game would be over by now, and I would be sitting somewhere else having breakfast instead of waiting for him to join us.
     Raising my coffee to my mouth, I sit here trying to ignore the pleas of Mea while we wait for everyone to get here.
     “Please,” she asks.
     “No.” I lean back in my seat staring at her.
     “Please.” I watch her cup her hands and bring them up to her chest as she pleads.
     “No.”
     Here it comes…I can see the anger building, the slight twitch in her eye starting.
     “Why not?” She drops her hands and her voice becomes louder than it was a few seconds ago.
     Because bothering you is so much fun.
     “Because I don’t like women…and I don’t want an assistant,” I tell her.
     “Well, you do want an assistant,” Lexi mumbles.
     “See!” Mea points to Lexi. “I’ll be so good! I follow you around anyway, and I hate women, too!” She bounces in her chair.
     “I know. You’re like a lost little puppy.” My face wrinkles when she starts the face. “Did you forget? You’re Josh’s assistant,” I remind her for the millionth time. “How are we going to explain why you’re suddenly mine?”
     We aren’t because she has no answer to that. For months, she’s been Josh’s assistant on set. Actually, if I’m being truthful, she has years of being Josh’s assistant under her belt.
     Am I using that as a scapegoat?
     Umm, yes!
     I have to put up with her all day everyday anyway. I don’t need her as an Ass, too.
     “I’m bored with Josh,” she whines, ignoring my question.
     That’s nice…I’m sure your husband would like to know he bores you at work.
     “Fine,” I groan, taking another mouthful of coffee.
     “Really?” Mea’s voice is so happy, so filled with joy.
     Stupid question.
     “No,” I smirk into my mug so she can’t see me.
     It’s not that I don’t like Mea…I like her a lot, actually. She’s just so much fun to tease.
     “You’re a jerk,” Mea pouts.
     See? Look at that lip. So. Much. Fun.
     “We’ve been coming here every Sunday for weeks and every Sunday it starts out the same. Could you just tell her yes and be done with it.” Lexi’s head falls over the back of her chair.
     Once again, the problem isn’t her being my Ass. It’s the fact that she is already Josh’s and further more… the girl knows nothing about make-up.
     “I don’t know why you want to be my assistant. Like you said, it’s same thing you do now…just follow me around and look busy. Why do you need the title?” I look out the restaurant window, searching for the rest of our group.
     “Because when I tell people I’m your assistant, it won’t feel like a lie.” She grabs a menu to look through it.
     Wait, what?
     “I…you…,” I try to think of something to say.
     What a freaking jerk! She just admitted to lying to everyone about being my Ass.
     Wait…this makes sense now. Every time someone mentioned giving something to my assistant, I laughed and said yeah.
     Dammit! Mea took total advantage of my ignorance!
     “This doesn’t make us friends.” I glare at her, still trying not to laugh.
     Do I get a say in anything?
     “Never.” Mea smiles.
     I feel like that answers both my verbal and mental question.
     “It doesn’t mean we’re going to be friends, either. We aren’t going to chitchat and gossip. I’m not about to play dress up and do your make-up.” I put my mug down on the table to wiggle my fingers through the air.
     “So, cuddling is off the table too, then,” she asks catching me off guard.
     Beg your pardon…
     “Why the hell would we need to cuddle?” I ask, and Lexi begins to laugh.
     “Well, say I’m stuck at your apartment because there’s so much snow outside. Does a sleepover count as all of those things?” She looks at us.
     Pressing my lips together, I try to make sense of what she just said.
     “Why the frig would you be at my apartment?” I question her.
     “Well, why not?” She looks at me then Lexi, whose body is being jolted around by laughter.
     “I…I honestly have no answer that you would accept,” I breathe out, exhausted. 
     “Okay. Can I ask one more question, though?” Mea beams.
     “Just one?” I wait for it, trying to mentally prepare myself for the next bizarre thing she might spout out.
     I think my eye is starting to twitch.
     I need a cup.
     Reaching down into my bag, I pull a few out.
     “Eh, it depends on your answer…” She looks behind me.
     “Fine, go ahead.” I turn to see everyone walking over to us, as I unwrap my medication.
     “What if that did happen?” she asks.
     That’s the same question with different words!
     I’m going to have to make sure this girl never gets the opportunity to come over. I’ll never get her out.
     “Then you can sleep on the couch or cuddle with Lexi.” I point to Lexi.
     Sweet peanut buttery goodness…you’re the only one who gets me.  
     “Sidney only cuddles when she’s drunk. Then she’ll do all those things…play with your hair and gossip, the whole nine yards. Other than that, she’s a stick in the mud,” Lexi laughs.
     I must attract people like this.
     “She’s going to make me be her friend, isn’t she?” I ask Simon when he pulls out his seat next to me.
     “I would love to tell you that you have a choice, but I think she’s going to win this one.” He lightly pinches my cheek.
     Releasing a heavy sigh, I agree.
     “Thank you for not lying to me.”
Emersyn Vallis is a first time author with Adjournment being the first book in the Fated Series. Currently residing on the east coast with her husband and three children she is typically mistaken for being quiet and reserved her friends often describe her as a spastic spider monkey and always the first to be there with her quick wit to pull you back up when you’re feeling down. After reading as a hobby for most of her life it wasn’t until she had discovered R. L. Mathewson’s ‘Neighbor from Hell Series’ and Tara Sivec’s ‘Playing with Fire Series’ that she came up with the idea to fuse comedy and suspense together and her passion for writing was born.

5 Unbelievable Amazing Stars

Wow, holy mind f%*# batman! That book was insane, in the best possible sense of the word. I was looking forward to reading more about Nila and Jethro, especially after the crazy place book one left us at, but I did not intend to have the feelings I did reading book two! Pepper delivers a complete rollercoaster ride!

In book one – Debt Inheritance – we meet the Hawk’s and the Weaver’s and learn of a crazy old family debt that leaves Nila Weaver in the hands of Jehtro Hawk, as payment of a debt owed to the Hawk family by the Weaver family. The book completely messed with my mind. I was in awe, I literally could not stop thinking about the story line. It was ruthless, crazy, and intriguing. I never imagined that Pepper could provoke me to have “loving – pull at my heart string” thoughts while reading about Nila and Jethro in book two, but she did! 

Nila is an amazing character; I absolutely love the growth of her character in book two. For a person who is taken against their will and thrust into a situation like hers to still function and plot, unbelievable. It takes her character to a whole new level. I love how hard she tries to fight the undeniable attraction she has for Jethro. She definitely is no longer the naive girl I thought she was in book one. 

Jethro, in true Pepper Winters style, is a crazy, cold, calculating, sexy, badass lead male character that we love to hate. In book one I absolutely had no idea how I was supposed to feel about him with his cold uncaring actions but now, with the twists and turns of book two, I can say, I think he is going to do amazing things for me! I can’t wait to see where his true intentions lye, and where Nila will fit into his plan. Their chemistry is off the charts and I love how she is thawing his cold heart. 

There is also the mystery behind Kite007, Kestrel, Vaughn, Jasmine, and the rest of the Hawk and Weaver families that I just can’t put my finger on! I know there is so much more story for Pepper to tell and I can’t wait to see if my theories pan out. This series is unlike anything I have ever read before and I love it.

Excerpt
A small gasp fell from my lips as his fingers kissed the paper-thin skin. His eyes held me hostage. The golden brown was now a swirling bronze, raging with the same demanding hunger I knew reflected in mine.
“This sort of reminds me of the forest,” I whispered. “The trees around us—no one else.” My words fell like petals, waiting for Jethro to crush them beneath his glossy shoe.
But…he didn’t.
Tracing one hand from my wrist, along the inside of my arm, and right to my throat, he fisted my ponytail. With intensity that stripped my soul to the very essence of who I was, he pulled my head back slowly, sensually, full of sexual power.
His eyes dropped to my mouth. “I’ll let you in on a little secret, Ms. Weaver.”
I panted, my neck straining against his hold, but I made no move to break the poignant awareness.
“You won that night, but I lied when I said it pissed me off.” His mouth dropped, his tongue licked my bottom lip with the barest of grazes.





First Debt (Book Two) Indebted Series

Blurb
“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”
Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.
She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.
Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.
Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.

She is no longer free.
Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey.
There are no rules. Only payments.
