Release Blitz: ‘Jax’ by J.L. Perry

Title: Jax
Author: J.L. Perry
Publisher: Hachette Australia
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: November 27, 2016

 

Blurb

My name is Jaxson Albright. To my friends I’m known as Jax. I’m the disgraced son of well-known Politician, Malcom Albright. You could say I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I was supposed to follow in my father’s footsteps and move into politics. My whole childhood was spent being groomed for this role, but that wasn’t what I wanted. I had other plans.

To my family’s disgust, I’m inked, I’m pierced and I own and run a tattoo parlour, in the hip suburb of Newtown. I fit in here. I can be the man I was destined to be, the man my family are ashamed of. The son they regret having.

I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for my saviour, Candice. My pink-haired angel. We grew up in the same circle, but like me, she’s an outcast. She refused to conform to society’s ways. She’s the only one who stuck by me and not only encouraged, but supported my dream.

I love her. No, correction—I’m in love with her. I have been for as long as I can remember. She has no idea how I feel. It’s a battle I struggle with daily. I’ve kept my secret all these years because I couldn’t risk losing her. That’s a chance I’m not prepared to take, because she’s my best friend; my only real family.

I’ve spent the last few years moving from one hot chick to the next, trying to mask these feeling I have. But it doesn’t help—I can’t get her out of my head. She still owns my damn heart.

How do you get over the girl you know you can never have? And how do you live without the one person on this earth who is made for you?

She’s my soulmate.

Book Review: ‘A Dream of Lilies: A Novella’ by Petra March

a-dream-of-lilies

Title: A Dream of Lilies: A Novella (A Touch of Cinnamon Book3)

Published: 21st June 2016

Author: Petra March

Facebook: www.facebook.com/AuthorPetraMarch

Synopsis:

Nicholas Baudin lives in Toulouse, France, where he owns a small coffee place, Le Petit Café. His life is apparently tranquil, and made of small joys and simple habits. In truth, though, this young man’s soul is troubled with memories of a painful event.

Then, on a bright spring day, Nicholas meets a strange, enchanting young woman with white hair, and pale blue eyes. Her name is Lily Brightwell. She is an actress who captivates crowds with her talent and her stories.

As Nicholas begins to fall for the young artist, his life turns into something unexpected and lovely.

(Ages 17+)

Review:

Another emotionally driven read, beautifully written. Makes more sense if you have read the stories that come before, gives you a bit more context. Descriptive writing throughout but that is the authors style so if you have read the others you will be used to it. Shorter read this time aswell but just as good.

This story follows the lives of Lily and Nicholas. They have both been going on with their lives but hiding their feelings from traumatic events of their pasts. The deaths of people they loved. Both events link them together, not that they know it at the start.

Lily is part of a travelling theatre group with her friends Zachary and Nancy that happens to travel to Nicolas’ town. The first moment he sees her on stage he is drawn to her – much like most men watching. Her ghostly white hair draws the eye along with her pale blue eyes. But the smell of smoke triggers a memory he would prefer to stay in the past making him rush away. If he feared he wouldn’t see her again he shouldn’t have as she soon arrives in his cafe along with her friends. Its like he feels a pull towards her, something his friend Willa can clearly see and enjoys pushing him towards. Bringing her a cinnamon drink and cookies does the trick of drawing her in. The smell draws to her while she feels the presence of Nicolas behind her. One smile and it seems they are hooked – well if they can keep their memories at bay and not run from them that is. It’s not until the day after that they meet by chance, to a point, both being drawn towards someone playing a violin in a park. You can see how comfortable they are with each other and soon are in each other’s arms. It would seem to be the start of something if Lily hadn’t taken a call that takes her away before the theatre group leaves. Though her leaving does kick start Nicolas into wanting to chase after her. It’s when he catches up to her that they come together for real but it’s also the moment where they find out how they are linked. Whether they can finally make peace with their pasts will determine whether they will have a future.

Interesting side characters that fill out the story well, coming together to give Lily a good ending from the heartbreak she held after her first love was lost. Eagan makes an appearance but I think it’s more to help create a link for Ari to reappear. Her former best friend who David, her first love, fell in love with while they were dating before he died. Someone who she needs to forgive for hurting her as they both lost the boy they loved. It’s not just them needs to come to terms with past pain, as Nicholas too needs to let go. Coming together will help them to come to terms and make peace with the past, which in turn will help them move forward.
