She isn’t the girl Luka Hale loved.
Gia Jilani killed the child she’d been, right along with the memory of his smile and the sting of his sweet kiss.
But sometimes, against her will, Luka comes back to her— his smile, his laugh, the crooked twist of his lips just before he kissed her. He’s a phantom that won’t ever fade. He’s a reminder of what happens if you love too deeply.
Now Gia returns to the place where the past and the present converge. Where pain and pleasure threaten to consume her. Where she is forced to face a past that has never really left her and the memories that still haunt her and likely always will.
This is a Saints and Sinners prequel novel set in the Thin Love timeline

Meet the Author
Eden Butler is a writer of contemporary, fantasy and romantic suspense novels and the nine-times great-granddaughter of an honest-to-God English pirate. This could explain her affinity for rule breaking and rum.

When she’s not writing or wondering about her possibly Jack Sparrowesque ancestor, Eden patiently waits for her Hogwarts letter, reads, and spends too much time in her garden perfecting her green thumb while waiting for the next New Orleans Saints Superbowl win.

She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.

LAST LOVE OF LUKA HALE EXCERPT:
“You got no idea, do you?” He kept his voice soft, low, though his insides were burning with the instinct to touch her, to lick dry the water from her beautiful skin. Luka closed his eyes, inhaling that lilac scent like it would satisfy him. He knew it wouldn’t. “You’re clueless how easy it would be to have any man you want?”
Luka opened his eyes when he felt the wet touch of her fingertips near his cheek. Gia didn’t smile. She didn’t seem able to do anything but hold every emotion off her face as she watched him. Her control awed him.
Gia opened her mouth, pink lips glistening with moisture as she wet them with her tongue. “I only want one man,” she admitted, her words confident, but there was still a wobble in her tone. Luka tensed, not sure what she wanted or how she’d go about getting whatever that was.
She meant him, he knew, but that wouldn’t make him move. It wouldn’t keep the reminder of her age, her probable inexperience from his thoughts. “You’re young,” he told her, hoping that would keep her from touching him again.
“I’m old enough.
Luka was starting to realize this Gia was one that might be tired of the sidelines. Maybe she was tired of watching and waiting and never having what she wanted. Maybe, he thought, she was ready to step onto the field and play.
Gia moved, making Luka step back, her wet body closer to him now, her breath heating his skin as she spoke. “I’m old enough for you, Luka.” Her breath was cool, smelled like mint, and there was a low, soft moan in her voice that made him harder. “My…my uncle…” She cleared her throat, looking down, then quickly up at him as though internally convincing herself to finish this. “My uncle will leave for Florida after tomorrow’s practice.” Some of her confidence slipped when she brushed her wet hair behind her ear, but she still looked directly at Luka. “My dorm is empty. We could be alone.”
Fuck me, he thought.
She was off limits, right? She was forbidden. Luka knew that. It was information that ran like a ticker tape scrolling in his mind. Gia wasn’t some beautiful woman he’d flirted with at a club or some Blue Devil-proud girl eager to thank Luka for his performance on the field.
She was his coach’s niece. She was his coach’s eighteen-year-old niece.
He could have taken her right then. She was already wet. He was sufficiently hard, but Luka held back, teeth gritted, jaw working as he grabbed the towel hanging from the hook next to the entrance. He moved close, his skin wetting as he grazed her chest and shoulder when he covered her body with the thick towel in his hand. The smallest twist of his head and he could reach her mouth. Their lips were so close already, their breath heated and mixed and did things to Luka’s head he wasn’t sure he liked.
Gia shifted her gaze, moving her chin like she was prepared for whatever he gave her. Like she wanted it all and wouldn’t settle for anything less. But Luka reminded himself one last time who she was and why he shouldn’t be there with her. He lingered, unable to pull back out of her reach before he inhaled, taking in that lilac scent and the teasing delicious taste of her breath.
He moved his chin, a half an inch away from her lips, then grinned, a half smile gesture that made her release the breath she’d been holding.
“Be sure to lock up before you head out,” he told her, winking before he turned to grab his clothes and put as much space between that off-limits girl and himself as he could.

For Iris Dane and Dash Justice, love was a battlefield that left them bloody. They learned the hard way that time heals no wounds–it only leaves them gapping wider.

KNEEL
Dash Justice wrote the songs everyone sings.

His face hangs on every girl’s wall. But Dash wasn’t always a rock God.

Once, he was just Jamie, the boy I loved.

But when my name, sung from his lips promised I was good for only one thing, all sweet thoughts of him die.

Now his excuses mean nothing. His apologies are weak and I’m about to show the world that even rock Gods can be brought to their knees.

BEG
I am a liar. My words were poison and everything I touched got filthy.

Except Iris.

She was the best part of who I was. The only bright spark in my dull, gray world.

Now I will crawl on my knees and grovel because sometimes, even rock Gods have to beg.

Review: The Red Ledger: Part 8 by Meredith Wild

*I was gifted The Red Ledger Part 7 by Bare Naked Words and Meredith Wild in order to read and review. All opinions are my own and are in no way influenced by Bare Naked Words.*

Buy the Book:

Amazon

Book Details:

Published: July 9th, 2019

Pages: 112

Author: Meredith Wild

Synopsis:

On the heels of the enemy….

They say Paris is for lovers. If only this trip across the ocean could be that simple. We should be wasting time in cafés and dreaming about our future—the one I’m determined to fight for, the one Isabel truly deserves. Instead, we’re here on the heels of the enemy.

Focused on a bigger prize, the secret society that’s been hunting us is now being hunted. They just don’t know it yet. We’re so close I can taste it. So close I can feel my grip tightening around them. Each day we know more. Every revelation unmasks a new player.

Thanks to old alliances, we’re that much closer to crippling their plans. Just when we’re closing in for the kill, we’re stopped dead in our tracks. And the only path forward will tear our worlds apart.

Opinion:

Ohhhhh snapppppp! Part Eight coming in hot over here.

First of all, Paris. Dream vacation spot. I absolutely love how Wild is always changing the setting, especially this one.

Second, of course we’re nearing the end so we’re starting to tie up loose ends and see an ending on the horizon.

Lots of action from start to finish here. Totally wasn’t expecting the airport twist and federal agencies twist (without giving too much away there.)

I don’t know how this is going to end, and I think that’s one of the reasons I thoroughly enjoy this series. There are twists and turns around every corner and I think part nine is going to be the biggest and baddest Red Ledger yet.

My Overall Rating: ★★★★★

Authors’ Bios
Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-old’s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you don’t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.
L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.
Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there’s more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.
