Cover Reveal: Acquiesce by Cory Cyr


Coming: December 30, 2014
****18+ due to adult language and explicit sexual content*****

Caspian Vance~former child prodigy, now an accomplished professor of human sexuality at twenty-six has it all—an IQ that's off the charts, a stellar career at which he excels, and the drop-dead looks and body that make women spontaneously combust with lust.

He's been studying sex and women's behavior since he was sixteen. When it comes to the science of human lust and the rewards of sexual pursuits, he has all the answers.

There's one thing he knows for sure: "love" has nothing to do with it. 
Sex is a basic, primal human need—love is an unstable, emotional complication. Both are present in a person, but completely unrelated. His own world of logic and fact accepts this truth and now. . .

He's going to prove it.

When Cass takes a sabbatical to research his theory in order to write his third book, he enlists the help of a former lover and now owner of the world's most exotic and secretive male brothel catering strictly to wealthy older women. On this remote Caribbean island, he uses his keen sense of observation and research to prove "love" is merely a series of chemical reactions in the human brain—nothing more.

Nicola Barrington~ had the perfect life, married to her soul mate.Ten years into her one and only relationship, her idyllic world is shattered by the death of her beloved husband. The loss of her "one true love" sends her into seclusion where she spends the next eleven years pining for the man she still loves.

The beautiful heiress, stays hidden away, her only connection to the outside world being being the hired help and her two close friends. Her friends know Nic has much to live for and are eager to see her find love again. . . and if not love, they would settle for her rediscovering the throes of lust.

As her 40th birthday approaches, her two friends succeed in coaxing her out of her emotionally safe haven to celebrate with a trip to an exclusive resort known for "restoring an older woman's brilliant, inner glow."

Caspian’s superiority and logic combined with Nic's innocence and melancholy are on an imminent collision course. Sometimes even a genius has a hard time figuring out a woman.

Blog Tour, Review, Giveaway Grayson by Lisa Eugene

All she needed was a job…
The last thing twenty-four year old grad student Angie Roberts needs is to worry about her new boss’s father. After all, she’s never even seen him. He remains sequestered upstairs in a house that looks like it should be the main feature in an episode of Hoarders. She had no idea the house was such a dump when she took the job. But she’s concerned about the safety and health of the old man living under such horrid conditions.

What she got was a mystery…
Despite warnings not to venture upstairs, she wanders up to the second floor. What she sees is shocking. The man she finds is a gorgeous, sexy, middle-aged man-- and he's stepping out of the shower. But something is definitely not right. Why would this wealthy, handsome man live in a house in such disrepair while his nine-teen year old son resides in a lavish penthouse? Why does he hide away from society? Why does he come to her rescue and then run away?

What she discovered was heartbreaking…
Angie learns that forty-four year old Grayson Whitmore suffers from schizophrenia. Paranoid, he retreats into his own world.

What she ended up with was a treasure…
Angie is determined to get through to him. They form a friendship that blazes into an inconceivable love fired with erotic passion. Angie must now come to Grayson’s rescue because the wicked that has been perpetrated on him is unconscionable. First, though, she must gain the trust of a man whose mind does not allow for such a thing.
 
Oh My...FABULOUS!!!
I absolutely LOVED Grayson. The characters are simply breathtaking...the way Lisa Eugene wrote Grayson...unbelievable.. It wasn't dark and twisted, it was simply beautiful and angsty.
 
~A part of him unfurled and blossomed right before my eyes, a part he never trusted to anyone.  I saw it all.  His dark fears, his crippling doubts, his fervent passion--and, his amazing heart.  It was perfection.  A perfect soul with fissures and flaws that made him beautiful. 
 
Angie befriending Grayson was a highlight in the book for me. The way he slowly came out of his shell and began to let her in...see the real him. 
The whole book was awesome...there's not really a lot that can be said without giving up any spoilers or explaining the book to you.  I was just so surprised with the way the book went because I was expecting it to be somewhat dark and twisted, but so unbelievably happy with the way it turned out.
And the ending...OMG, I was just crying.  The whole book was emotionally turbulent and I LOVED it.
Definitely 5 Stars!!!
 
Early Sunday morning, I crawled out of bed in search of Grayson. I discovered him upstairs in the room with the books. They were piled all around him as he scratched at something on the floor with an old shovel. The room was saturated with an early morning chill, so thick I could feel it seeping through my skin. I hugged my torso, scrubbing my palms up and down my arms. I approached him hesitantly and asked what he was doing. My heart was in my throat because I never knew what to expect with Grayson. He stopped and leaned against the handle, his cloudy gaze finding my face. He was fully dressed. He must have gotten dressed again after we’d made love earlier. 

“Digging,” he acknowledged casually. “Digging a trap.”

I swallowed hard, emotion stacking like bricks in my chest. I shook my head, my mind grasping for purchase, trying to understand. “A trap for what, Grayson?”

“Danger. I have to be prepared. I have to protect us.”

I reached out a hand, trying to keep it steady. “You’re safe, Grayson.”

His gaze shifted to my proffered hand, but he didn’t move. He didn’t believe me. Fear and skepticism drew a roadmap of worry on his face. His jaw squared and he tightened his lips into a brittle line. I watched his body uncurl as he grabbed the shovel and silently started scraping at the floor again. That’s when I saw it. There was a large, jagged crater in the dusty wood that must have been covered up by the scattered books. It was directly over the small cracks I’d seen in the ceiling downstairs, the network of spider veins I’d noticed soon after starting here. I wondered how long he’d been working at this trap. I could already see exposed beams and fluffy insulation. If he kept this up, eventually he’d put a hole right through the wood floor.

“Go back to bed, Angie.”

“I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying with you, Grayson,” I said sternly, plopping myself down on the floor next to him. 

He stopped again and stared at me, his blue eyes almost cobalt in the gray dawn. His hair was a loose mane framing his face, giving him an unruly look. “You’ll be tired. You haven’t gotten much sleep.”

I squeezed my eyes shut, hurting, thinking of the reason I’d been up most of the night. We’d held each other, made exquisite love, bathed in a temporary utopia where I could pretend he was okay. 
But Grayson wasn’t okay, and as I spent more time with him, I realized the extent of his fractured thoughts. My Grayson was funny and brilliant. My Grayson was tender and passionate. My Grayson could melt my heart with the tiniest smile. But this man, too, was my Grayson, a man who was sometimes out of touch with reality, who lived in the distorted world concocted by his brain. It was a world of doubt, fear, and distrust.

Lisa Eugene began writing as a way to mentally escape from the hectic medical world where she has been a practicing nurse for over twenty years. After publishing her first novel, STRICTLY BUSINESS, she quickly learned that readers couldn't get enough of the world she created and now she lives out her wildest fantasies by writing steamy romantic suspense for her fan-favorite Washington Memorial Hospital series.

When she's not plotting her next dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure, you can find her juggling a full time job, playing soccer mom, or curled up reading a good romance.

*Warning contains insta-love...
I thought Come Undone was a great book. The characters are funny, sexy and well put together...
Xane Geist is lead singer to Black Halo, a goth metal band, and a definite sex god.
Dani Fosbrook is a meek little thing of a girl that just wanted to experience her all time favorite band in concert, Black Halo. She has forever felt a connection with her life and the lyrics of most of Black Halo's songs..she's told Xane (in her head) all of her deep dark secrets and let him share the load..of course he doesn't know this because it was all in her mind..really, who hasn't dreamt of meeting that one star they've crushed on hard, fantasized what the meeting would be like, maybe wondered if they would sweep you off your feet and give you your Happily Ever After..well, that's kinda what Dani's thought and dreamt throughout the years.
Finally, a chance meeting has them running off together.
The story was very fluent, and it was easy to just lose yourself in the moment, and read, read, read.
In order to keep this spoiler free that's about all I can tell you...I don't wanna give any of the plot twists and turns away!
A solid 4 Stars...

 Well, what a hot and exciting couple of books.
 They were smoking hot and very entertaining.
Come Together was great.  Xane and Dani's relationship just kept getting  hotter and hotter. Things are picking up for Dani.  She's finally comfortable around Xane, even though she remains a bit unstable about their relationship.  Always wondering if  he's going to leave her...That is the crux of this story.  As the band goes on a European Tour things begin happening...
Dani keeps getting "clues" about Xane's past relationships which keeps her second guessing Xane's feelings.  There are some twists and turns, but it says smolderingly hot n sexy the whole time, with promises of a big decision waiting to be made.
The characters are awesome.  Even though we don't delve a whole lot into their past, enough is made mention that we can understand where both Xane and Dani are coming from and their individual hangups.  Oops, then along comes Luthor...wow..if he doesn't sound simply fabulous!
I'm patiently awaiting Come Alive book 3 in this series!
A hot 4 Star read!!
