About the Author

S.M. Stryker grew up on a small farm in Oregon with her two brothers.

She married her husband 27 years ago. It was important to her to be able to stay at home to raise their four daughters.

She wasn’t an avid reader, although she always thought her life would make a good book. A few years ago she picked up FSOG and The Crossfire Series and was drawn to the characters; the story lines moved her more than anything. Her life changed at that point, She could relate to the characters and what they had gone through. She devoured books after that, sometimes reading 8-10 books a week, and finding new authors she enjoyed reading. She couldn’t be without a book, her IPad or IPhone anything that she could download her kindle app onto.

Knowing she had always wanted to write but kept putting it off, she emailed a few of her favorite authors that gave her some very good advice. So she finally went for it.

I hope you enjoyed her story.

Synopsis

When it is time for souls to meet, there is nothing on earth that can prevent it from happening. That’s what Emma Finch realizes after her first encounter with Luke Myers. A confirmed bachelor and undercover cop, Luke has made his job his life. Since his first love died tragically in a car accident, Luke hasn’t been seriously interested in anyone … until he meets Emma.

Emma is navigating life after her husband of 24 years dies suddenly. Her days as a middle school guidance counselor are filled with hormonal teenagers, while her nights are interrupted by a dream stuck on repeat. A chance meeting with the mystifying detective at a Memorial Day barbeque leaves Emma staring into the same grey eyes that haunt her slumber night after night. She knows her dream will unlock a mystery, and that it’s somehow tied to the tattooed, pierced law-enforcer.

As Emma and Luke’s beautiful love story develops, Emma’s dreams become more frequent and frightening. She’s completely convinced that the enigmatic couple she dreams about each night shares an undeniable connection to Luke and his current undercover assignment. Emma and Luke’s bond is so powerful, they both wonder if maybe they’ve met before. What they learn is that time has a wonderful way of showing them what really matters, and that the universe works in mysterious ways

Review

I don’t know where to begin, this book was well written, painful heartbreaking.. I wanted Everly to find her way so much, I wanted Beckett to be the game changer…I was looking for the fight to live. This book is full of angst and sorrow. Sometimes life is harder to crawl out of bad situations…

But it is refreshing to read a book that is not all flowers and roses…best part is watching these two broken people fight their way to the top!

Great debut novel;)

Synopsis

All truths burn bright and clear. I’m still waiting in the dark.

Everly Monteith has traded her life of glitter, parties, and self-destruction for waitressing at a Parisian café. She’s put the tragedy that sent her across the Atlantic in the past—until her toxic ex shows up and sends her reeling once more. Her fresh start begins slipping away until a smug British war correspondent crashes her party. But falling for Beckett means letting down her guard, something that might pull them both into the dark.

There are beautiful lies in this world, and it takes me being chased through a hallway at a rave to decide this girl is one of them. But even the most beautiful lies aren’t worth chasing.

Twenty-five-year-old Beckett Reid is forced into sabbatical after being kidnapped on assignment in Afghanistan. Back in Paris, he locks himself away to work on a novel, focused on saving his budding journalism career. But when he meets an enigmatic American heiress, his plans are quickly neglected. Everly is the perfect replacement for dangerous war zones, even if she does leave glitter on everything he owns. Reckless and wild, she runs through life making more mistakes than anyone he’s met, but Beckett is determined to fight for her, even if he must face the messy truth that he must fight for himself first.

Amber’s Review

5 PUSH ME OVER THE EDGE STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

(My goal is to get you to feel the emotions I felt while reading without giving any of the story away.)

This is one twisted, crazy, out-of-this-world love story.

Total, Intense, Mind-Fuck into crazy town.

The book starts with an almost mind-blowing prologue – WOW! I was sold. Hook, line and sinker. Then I was taken into a world so maddening, so powerful, so utterly awash with emotions but at the same time I did not like being there. Some things were beautiful and heartwarming. Others were repulsive, degrading and down right vile.

The writing was phenomenal. I have never felt so many conflicting emotions about characters, situations or an overall book as I did with this one. The love story between David and Emma was creepy and weird but beautiful and romantic. ~ How to I explain without divulging too much? ~ David and Emma themselves were characters I disliked but loved at the same time. In spite of some unlikeable qualities I also felt deeply for them.

“A craving for a single, perfect moment in which I have absolute control. I can’t ignore it. Even with her. Even though I really do love her back.”

You do get a chapter from each of his past six girlfriends and one thing is evident with all six, they love him.

I cannot wait for Pull and although this was an incredibly disturbing and shocking yet riveting and captivating emotional roller coaster ride I highly recommend it.

Synopsis

I feel like I am wrapped in a cyclone. Everything is whirling around me, drawing the air out of my lungs and filling me with the best kind of turmoil. Every time his tongue slides against mine, a prickle in my gut tells me how right we are together. How much I need David. How much I need us.

I hope the cyclone never stops.

Emma Searfoss has spent a lifetime trying to escape her abusive stepfather. It’s why she moved far away from home. It’s why she’s kept no ties with her remaining family. And it’s why she’s got a major rage problem. When her neighbor shows up to fix the kitchen in her new apartment, his enigmatic charm calms the fire in her. David is cool and collected, and he makes Emma feel safe for the first time ever. But David has his own chilling past—his six previous girlfriends have all disappeared without a trace. Emma’s walking a dangerous line, but David’s pull is intoxicating. And impossible to resist…

Book: Hate a Love Story

By: Laurel Ulen Curtis

5 Beautiful Star Read

Review

This book was amazing, one of my top favorites at this point. It was full of so much soul. It was thought provoking. This is definitely not your typical Romance of hot and spicy dramatic love. This book was so powerful. I loved how real it showcased life and how you never know what is going to happen. I love how it stayed true to some of the historical events that happened and how if felt for some people that might have lived it.

I love how this book dipped in to love, loss, regret, anguist, love, humor, happiness. This book was not all roses, and some of the situations were heartbreaking. But every heartbreaking loss was written beautifully and with love.

I loved every character in this book. I loved Whitney she was such a rock, she showed such heart to her friends. I love that the writer choose to let us see the struggles she had and how she executed her struggles so graciously.

I loved Blane. I loved how loyal, loving and heartwarming he was. There were parts that were hard for me to swallow, but looking back at the finished book. I can understand why.. Once again the writer was amazing with Blane. Swoon ..

“You told me one day some lucky girl was gonna call me an asshole a lot. I’m really hoping it’s gonna be you”..

I love the secret banter Blane and Whit had. It made them so lovable and enduring.

Gram…I think this book would not have been half as good with out grams. She was lMBO funny. I was rolling laughing. Its pretty embarrassing being at Starbucks and laughing out loud into your phone when you are not talking to anyone on.

I was really sad to see this book come to an end.. This is not your typical romance book, but it was heartbreaking but beautiful.

“I hate our love story”….. But I loved every minute of this book.

Synopsis

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Life can be messy,
And love can be too.

Most people say that it’s not important where you’re going, but instead, how you get there.

Unfortunately for me, the journey to love was absolutely agonizing. Love and Hate wrestled with my life day after day, year after year, and the only way to stop it was to let one of them win.

Which one?

I fought to love harder. But I loathe my love story.

Catch  me

Synopsis

In the past, I’ve always been given everything I’ve wanted, but nothing that I truly needed. I’ve experienced a lot of things in my twenty-five years, everything except the one thing I want. It’s the one thing that can’t be bought. It can’t even be taken, it has to be given. And nobody has ever given it to me, not really anyway.

Not until him.

Music is the center of both our lives, but as he found his place in it, I lost my way. He soared, while I spiraled down a destructive path.
I lost myself in more ways than I can count.

The ironic thing is that I didn’t realize how lost I was until he found me.

And now that he has, I have to wonder if he’ll stay around long enough to catch me

Afraid to fall 2

Synopsis

Jaded and hardened by the ultimate of betrayals, Clearwater Falls Sheriff Gage Dennison is content with his simple, detached life.

With only his loyal dog at his side, Gage has successfully maintained the walls he’s built around his life and heart for eight years. From his secluded house at the end of a private road, to the solitude of a small town sheriff, he has no trouble keeping everyone just where he wants them – at a distance.

But Gage soon learns his walls are not as solid as he thought them to be.

Despite all his efforts, and against his will, Gage’s new neighbor Delaney Collins threatens to crack his once-impenetrable walls.

Unprepared for the constant verbal sparring, and growing physical attraction to Delaney, Gage is suddenly fighting an internal war he never expected. His brain and reason insist he keep his distance, but his body refuses to listen. Especially when the lure of her warm, willing body soothing his bruised and battered soul is too much to resist.

As the demons of his past are revealed, will Gage crumble under the weight of his fear? Or will he find the strength necessary to tear down his walls and hold on to the only woman that offers him a second chance at love?
