Spotlight on an upcoming breakthrough New Adult novel from debut author, Liz Jacobs: 

ABROAD: Book One

Publisher: Brain Mill Press

Release Date (Print & Ebook): June 27th wide release; early access June 17th

About the book: 



Nick, a Russian-Jewish immigrant living in America, doesn't know where he belongs. Socially anxious, intensely private, and closeted, he feels like a collection of disparate parts. When he goes to study abroad in the UK, he is forced to be honest with himself for the first time. If only he can speak to other people without wanting to throw up.


Dex knows exactly who he is: a black queer guy who doesn't give a toss what anybody thinks of him. He's got his friends, his family, a glittering future. All right, he also has a bit of a broken heart that he's been nursing for a while, but he is absolutely, one hundred percent, totally fine. Apart, maybe, from his family's abrupt move to an affluent, largely white town. Or his younger brother feeling increasingly isolated as a result. Or that persistent broken heart.


When Nick and Dex meet, both find themselves intrigued--and afraid. The last thing Nick wants is to face his deepest secret. The last thing Dex needs is another heartache. But through endless late night talks, both find it harder and harder to resist the terrifying pull of attraction.



But Dex has had to fight too hard for his right to be where he is; Nick isn’t even sure where he’s from. So how can either of them tell where this is going?

About the author:

Liz Jacobs came over with her family from Russia at the age of 11, as a Jewish refugee.  All in all, her life has gotten steadily better since that moment. They settled in an ultra-liberal haven in the middle of New York State, which sort of helped her with the whole “grappling with her sexuality” business.

She has spent a lot of her time flitting from passion project to passion project, but writing remains her constant. She has flown planes, drawn, made jewelry, had an improbable internet encounter before it was cool, and successfully wooed the love of her life in a military-style campaign. She has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize for her essay on her family’s experience with immigration.

She currently lives with her wife in Massachusetts, splitting her time between her day job, writing, and watching a veritable boatload of British murder mysteries.

BLURB
I had a dream and a plan.
It was a risk but I got noticed.
I never thought the story I’ve chased would become my own reality.

A descent into darkness.

The signs were there, before it even happened.
I felt it and I should have run without looking back.
But I didn’t realize how deep and depraved it would become.

As the lines became blurred. I felt lost, but also found.

Was I selfish? Stupid? A victim?
Or was it simply my own special kind of sickness?
This is it. My monster. My enemy. My choice.

My story.

WARNING! This is dark erotic suspense. Story contains scenes of rape, abuse and violence which may be a trigger for some. It is intended for mature readers of dark erotica. Please proceed with caution.

AUTHOR WARNING

ATTENTION!

This is not a romance book and it definitely not pretty.
This book is dark, twisted, and wrong. It is melancholic, and fucked-up.
I have a hero you shouldn't love.
I have a heroine you shouldn't sympathize.
I have some scenes you don't want to read.
I have some scenes you'll be offended because you can't resist the temptation of keep reading it.
This book has nothing to do with unicorns, rainbows, heart, and flowers.
And I'm warning you...
If you read this book it is your choice, not mine.
Don’t forget that I warned you.

They always say to expect the unexpected. Little did I know the unexpected also meant the unthinkable.

No longer a wife or a mother, what was once a full and meaningful life was now obliterated; leaving me with nothing but darkness in its place.

Until him.

Blazing bright and determined to bring me back to life, Lior came knocking on darkness' door. Gentle, yet fierce; he was armed in warmth and healing.

He was powerful, persistent and prepared for war.

I just don't know if I'm willing to fight or ready to fall.

Lena Bourne

Now Live on Amazon


Synopsis:

Sara

Ian and Sara. Sara and Ian. That’s how it’s always been, since the sixth grade, and definitely since before I knew what love really is. And I do love him, I’ll never stop. I realize it again each time I try to run from him. But I ran regardless once I found out I was pregnant. I just didn’t go far enough. I can’t, because he’s always with me, in my heart, and you can’t escape what’s in your heart. Only now I have my child to consider, and the last thing anyone needs is a father like Ian. He can never know about our child. Sometimes a bad boy is just that…bad. And there’s no hope of ever changing them. I know, because I tried.

Now Ian is out of prison, and he wants me back. This time he won’t succeed, and all my fantasies of running my hands down his perfect body, or staring into his baby blue eyes won’t change that. Because in real life, beasts don’t turn into princes when you kiss them. Now if I could just stop wanting to keep kissing him.

Ian

Being the pretty boy among tough bikers is hard. It was a million times harder in prison. But the thing is—and most people wouldn’t guess it by looking at me—I love proving just how cruel and ruthless I really am. But there’s one person I love more. Sara. She left me when I went to jail, but I served my sentence, and now it’s time for her to come back to me. She’s my everything, always has been. She’s the only reason I haven’t turned into a complete monster yet. Without her, I have nothing, especially now that the MC is destroyed. I will win her back. I’ll do whatever it takes. There’s no other way. I’m going insane just thinking I’ll never get to kiss her delicious curves again.

But there’s more to it than that. She has a kid now. My kid. And it’s already a year old. That’s too long for me to be away, and I’m gonna make sure that little person never knows what it’s like to be abandoned by his father. I could never do much right except cause grief and pain, and that was apparent from a very early age. But I mean to do this right.

NOTE: OUTLAW’S REDEMPTION is a standalone, full length MC biker romance novel, which contains steamy sex scenes, and deals with disturbing themes that may be uncomfortable for some readers. Intended for 18+ audiences.

5 STARS!!

34857996

WHEN DARKNESS AND LIGHT COMBINE, DESTINED SOULS WILL IGNITE . . .

Connected since childhood.
Two souls: one dark and one pure.
Bracing to take the greatest step of all.

River ‘Styx’ Nash loves his woman. Ever since he met Mae at the fence of the cult that had kept her captive as a child, he has never loved anyone else. He loves her black hair, her pale skin and of course, her ice-blue ‘wolf eyes’.

Since Mae came crashing back into his life, his only wish has been to marry her; finally to make her his wife. But now the wedding is booked, and only weeks from forever having Mae by his side, a lifelong problem is plaguing him.

He wants to marry her; he has never wanted anything more . . .
. . . if only he could speak the words and declare it to the world.

Salome ‘Mae’ Nash’s life had been filled with heartache and pain . . . until, at age eight, she met a strange dark-haired boy from the outside world. Years later, and reunited with her great love, Mae is ready to solder her heart to his. Finally, Mae is getting ready to marry her man. But her fiancé has become withdrawn. Something is deeply troubling him.

But Mae has no idea what.

Or what to do to help.

Can Styx open up and conquer his deepest pain? Or will the infamous Hangmen Mute allow his fears to overcome his love for Mae and watch their much-anticipated wedding crumble to dust?

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 and over.

***I Do, Babe: A Novella (Hades Hangmen #5.5) is to be read AFTER Damnable Grace (Hades Hangmen #5)***

----EPIC---

I said it before and I'll say it again now. There is no surpassing Tillie Cole's books for me! The writing is well-constructed, the plot cannot be more beautiful and more captivating that it is and OMG the characters are so well-written. Whenever I read one of her books, I feel like the world she creates really exists somewhere else. God, do I wish that were true!!

When I finished I Do, Babe, I had this weird feeling, like that was the end of the Hades Hangmen series. And maybe that was because Styx and Mae's story sort of came to an end! After everything that happened to them, they managed to survive and stay together, which is a huge accomplishment considering their backround! Tillie really did them justice!! Thank God, there are more books coming though, right?

As always, we got to catch a glimpse of our other favorite characters, like Vike, AK, Ky and my personal favorite, Rider!! Ky was a sweetheart and we got to see his soft side. And, of course, Vike. He is the comic relief in every single book in the series. I hope we get his story soon!!

If you're a fan of the Hades Hangmen series, you don't wanna miss out on this novella. Seriously, go get it and read it. You won't regret it!!

 description

5 STARS!!!

---TRAGICALLY BEAUTIFUL---

This book left me filled with all kinds of emotions. I feel sad, inspired, astonished, frustrated, joyful. And the list goes on!! MM romance is one of my two favorite genres. I'm always hesitant to start a new author for me that writes mm romance, because, obviously, I don't know if I'll like it. I, personally, am very specific about what I like in a book and that only intensifies when it comes to my favorite genre. But, after reading Unsteady, which was my first Melissa Collins book, I can only say that I loved it!! It was absolutely right for me. I am very satisfied by both the writing and the story! It touched all the subjects I want to read in an mm romance, such as conflict, hesitation, depression, social oppression and liberation, happiness. In a word, the book was fulfilling!

description

The story is about two guys that used to be best friends in high school and just for a small amount of time, lovers! After having to subject to traditional social and sexual rules, Jude pushes Micah away, which results in Micah leaving and joining the army. Fast forward ten years, Micah has PTSD, he is depressed, hopeless, physically and psychologically damaged, suicidal and seeks salvation. The type of salvation only Jude can give him. Being apart for a decade might seem as a lot of time, but when you have the kind of connection Jude and Micah have, it only feels like a small time lapse and as if nothing has changed. They reconnect and realise that they still have deep feelings for each other. They want to try and figure out what went wrong last time they were together so they can avoid doing the same mistakes.

Unfortunately, Micah's PTSD and secrets are getting in the way of their relationship, which might not be that strong after all. At the end, history repeats itself and leaves Micah and Jude conflicted and remorseful.

The story doesn't end there, don't worry. Micah and Jude find their way to each other again and manage to work things out. It's a really beautiful story and it doesn't disappoint in any aspects. Both characters might be vulnerable and withdrawn at the beginning, but at the end they learn how to trust each other and how to be more open with their feelings.

So, if you're interested in a story that deals with high school best friends turned lovers, I highly recommend Unsteady!!!


I received an ARC of Unsteady in exchange for an honest review!!
