A Rocker Romance like none other! #RELLIK @TeresaMummert

Synopsis

Rellik Bentley is to die for.

He can have any woman he wants and they will do anything to be with him. He uses and abuses them like drugs and tosses them out with the trash. The only thing he gives a f*ck about is his music. That is, until Ella Lighten walks into his life and stumbles upon one of his darkest secrets. In the midst of doing damage control, he begins to obsess over the mysterious woman who wants absolutely nothing to do with him.
Rellik won’t take no for an answer.

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

We all know that two halves make a whole, but what if each halves are tainted with a past that soon will collide?

Ryder grew up with one person in his life that understood him completely, Katie.  She was his best friend, girlfriend, and the one that kept him grounded.  He could count on her when his life was in shambles.  Ryder knew Katie’s secret and when he confronted Bryce about it, he also lost his best friend forever.  Fast forward and now Ryder goes by Rellik.  He’s a member of an awesome rock band.  With his past haunting him daily, he puts on a performance on and off stage.

Ella was left with her grandma at a young age and her mother never returned.  When her grandmother passes away, Ella is put into the system and prays to survive.  As soon as she’s able, she runs away and barely makes a living working as a bartender.  She trusts no one, but her scars remind her daily of the life she left.

One night their lives collide, and Rellik saves Ella from an attacker.  From this point forward, they are connected, but on a level that is GENIUS Teresa Mummert!  This story is dark, twisted, mind blowing, and will have you questioning what love will make you do.  It will have you questioning your morals, and I honestly thought, “could I do the same thing?”  Rellik is willing to do anything to help Ella get away from her past, but when he realizes it’s closer to his heart than he knew, protecting someone you love has an entirely new meaning.

This story took me a minute to focus on how they were connected, but once I did… WOW!!!! It was freakin’ mind blowing.  I have been a fan of Teresa Mummert since White Trash Beautiful, but this is by far the best book I’ve ever ready of hers.  This is def not your typical rock star romance, and the way the band was formed was priceless.  Personally, I ❤ it considering I deal with individuals that have some of the same issues on a daily basis.   Even though RELLIK is a rocker, I have to say that this book is so much more.  It’s about finding love when you’re lost in the past, and realizing that your future isn’t worth giving up.  Get your copy of RELLIK today!

Two Parts Make A Whole: A Song For Us by Teresa Mummert

Synopsis

In this highly anticipated follow-up to White Trash Damaged, Cass and Tucker have finally found their happily ever after, but can Eric, the band’s brooding drummer, ever let go of his past and find love? 

From a small-town boy with fantasies of superstardom to rock star on tour with the suddenly famous band Damaged, Eric’s life has not been an easy journey. Now he struggles to let go of his past of physical abuse, a past that still haunts him. His anger is causing him to spiral out of control and he risks losing everything he has worked so hard for.

Only one person has ever gotten him to open up about his past: Sarah, the lead singer of Filth, the opening act on their first national tour—a fellow rocker with a confident façade that masks her own painful secrets. But their bands’ rocky past and Sarah’s tumultuous relationship with her bandmate and boyfriend Derek force her to keep Eric at a distance. As their friendship begins to grow into something more, Eric has to find a way to let go of his tortured past, or it could jeopardize his only chance for a happy future…

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

A Song For Us isn’t a story about Tucker and Cass instead it’s about Eric and Sarah. What happens when Sarah strolls back into Eric’s life with Derek, the ass hat boyfriend along side? We all know that Sarah and Eric are friends, confide in each other, but what happens when the true feeling consume each of them in their own way?

We all have a past and some are worse than others. Eric has a past to over come along with Sarah doing the same. Eric tries to be the bigger person and do what he believes is right for Sarah.

Sarah is drowning in the present and past, but is she willing to step up and announce her feelings to her future?

A Song For Us is a story of love, pain, heartbreak, confronting your past, and moving forward. This book will make you fall for Sarah and Eric and the path each are currently on. The question is will their paths cross or will they never intersect?

About the Author

Teresa Mummert

“I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney’s Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn’t resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I’d like to tell you a story.

– – – – – – – – – – –

 

Synopsis:

Sometimes love burns so hot in your veins that it consumes

all rational thought.

 

That’s why Brock and I never had a chance.  I had to start my life over. College was my

chance to become someone new. I changed everything about myself to fit in, but

one person saw through my facade.

 

The attraction between Abel and I was undeniable, but I

still hadn’t healed from the painful secret I carried around with me. Abel

struggled to get me to face my past in order to move forward. In doing so, he

revealed a secret of his own; one that changed everything I thought I knew.

 

A secret that would bring Brock back into my life and force

me to face the truth of what really happened the day I lost him.

Chelly’s Thoughts <3:

WTF did I just read?  I’m still trying to figure that out, but I’m sure it’ll require another read through to thoroughly understand it.  Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad…it was that good!  And completely mind blowing!

Delilah (or Lie, as she prefers to be called) has had a tough life.  Being the product of rape, she was never wanted, and her mom made sure she knew that.  She was bullied throughout her life in school and always felt alone, until she ends up in a group home and meets Brock.  Brock has his own problems, but he takes Delilah under his wing and for the first time in her life, she feels safe and protected.  He promises her forever, but he broke his promise and now Delilah is left with no one…

After moving from Mississippi to Orlando for college, Delilah is living up to her nickname.  She is living a lie, hiding under the façade of the blonde party girl, and refusing to let anyone in on her past.  After going to a party with Trish, her super-hot, super-shallow, trashy roommate, she meets Abel, and suspects he’s living the same lie as she.  He sees through her mask, and Lie thinks she sees through his, but with his hot and cold personality, she can’t be too sure.  The attraction between the two is undeniable, but is Abel truly the nice guy he sometimes seems to be, or the asshole that inevitably surfaces?  He’s got his own secrets, but will he ever open up?  Will Lie ever trust him with her own?

I was drawn in by this story from the beginning, eager to find out the story of Brock and Delilah, then Abel comes in from left field.  I didn’t know which one was the good guy and I had so many questions, but the only way to find out was to keep reading.  I both loved and hated each of them at some point, and I felt sorry for the life Delilah had been dealt, but she made a few no-so-smart decisions that made me not like her at times, too.  We finally get the full truth, then comes the curve ball…WOW!  That’s all I can say.  Major props to Teresa Mummert!  I never in a million years saw that coming in the end and honestly, I’m still a little bit confused.  I still have a few questions left unanswered, but I’m sure another read-through will help me understand a little better.  Teresa Mummert is one of my favorite authors and Perfect Lie did not disappoint…I will continue to devour anything she puts out!

Suicide Note Stole My Heart!

suicide note

**Disclaimer: This book contains no acts of suicide and it does have a ‘Happily Ever After’**

A soldier returning for mid-tour leave decides to stay with a cousin in Maine, after his fiancé leaves him for someone else while he is away at war. His cousin is going through his own devastation and is struggling to pick up the pieces and move on with his family. As they try to help each other through the pain, Shane’s path crosses Jenn’s and he soon learns that everything happens for a reason.

Release date: March 15, 2013 (not available for preorder)

**ARC copy given for a review by the one and only Teresa Mummert**

I loved this book! It left me with such happiness and the biggest smile on my face. My ONLY complaint is that I didn’t want it to end! I was like please keep going! I want to see the rest of their fairytale! In this book there is so much heart break and mistrust, and two of the sweetest characters have to deal with pain and heartbreak. (It just broke my heart!)I absolutely loved how the book was told from both sides. You know exactly what Jenn and Shane are thinking, but yet they don’t know each others thoughts.

My heart just reached out for Jenn from the get go! To have to deal with her family, especially her sister, I just don’t know how she did it! Personally, I would have wanted to crawl in a hole and die! Instead she took her negative and made it positive by focusing on her work…. even though that is all she had in life.

Shane is so kind-hearted and in love with Chelsea. When he is overseas, he gets his heart broken. He has to make a decision of on his R&R to go to NC or make a detour to Maine to visit the only family he has…. let’s just say he makes the best decision ever!

Jake and May are also extremely important characters in this book. Jake is Shane’s cousin and Jenn’s boss. May is his wife, and is one of the most fun loving individuals ever! I hope everyone has a May in their life! If you don’t, you’re missing out! Jake and May have their own struggles that really tie all the events together. I really feel that these two helped make the book because without them there are a TON of missing pieces!

This book touched my heart and soul. I think part of it is due to my cousin being deployed right now, and we are counting down until he gets home (58 Days!!!) There are other events that play into the relationships between Jenn and Shane. Both Jenn and Shane are dealt a pretty bad hand in life when it comes to relationships, but they create their own fairytale. In fact, I know that Shane STOLE my heart! He just wouldn’t give up on Jenn. He had an internal desire to get to know her. I loved how he wanted to make her happy, didn’t want to hurt her, valued their friendship, and let go of that tough guy image. I love the fact that he was a constant and wanted to remain constant.

I had a really hard time writing this review because I didn’t want to give any spoilers! When I think about the emotions that are involved in the book, I can’t help but want to tell you every little detail. In fact, here are just a few of how I felt while reading in no particular order: workaholic, that bitch!, hurt, anger, need, heartbroken, unsure, trusting, loving, faithful, time to put your big girl panties on, Eeeeeekkkkkk, and real life.

Teresa Mummert does an out of this world job at making Jenn and Shane’s fairytale come true! This story is REAL. There is no other way to put it. You will not be disappointed! Get your copy of Suicide Note on March 15th. Let me know if you felt like you heart was going to burst open like mine at the end because FAIRYTALES DO COME TRUE!
