The Work Of Art Trilogy

a fun plus 101

In a life driven by passion, famed artist Maxfield Caswell lives in a world of brilliant color and drama, pushing his art and affairs to his emotional edge. He’s stunning, charismatic and celebrated in the art world, but are the trappings of fame also destroying him?

For years intelligent and bright-eyed Ava Jacobs has worked diligently toward a career in the art world. Ava is swept off her feet when she meets the passionate artist. She soon realizes, however, that he’s on a destructive path—one she doesn’t intend to join him on.

In the decadent world of patrons, art groupies, and predators, feisty and beautiful Ava knocks Max off his pedestal. A stunned Max sees something special in Ava and offers her an opportunity she can’t refuse. As their lives and passions collide, will he realize that she alone has the power to heal him? Can their hearts come together to create their own work of art?

~Each book in this trilogy will be released 8 weeks apart~ Contains mature content

My Review

I really do not know how to express how much I loved this book! After turning the last page, I physically was breathless as I read the last few words.

The story tells the tale of Ava and Max. Ava is an Art Assistant who meets and is instantly attracted to the bad boy of the Art world Max Caswell. He is beautiful, passionate and seemingly a womanizer. But surprisingly, after helping Max out of a delicate situation which could have harmed his career. He insisted that she write the text for a book based on his life. During this process they grow closer to one another and she sees the opposite of the playboy, someone sweet and fun. But try as she might, she cannot deny the feeling that she has for him. He also seems affected by her, but pulls away right at the moment where she feels them become closer.
This continues until finally they no longer can deny their attraction and express their feelings. But the time and place makes Ava feel like another one of his conquest and she stops become things become to far. The couple fights and the separation causes an explosive breakdown in Max, Ava is not sure their bond will survive.

Work of Art is a very well written read full of passion and romance. I along with Ava felt as if I were on an emotional roller coaster ride flipping between the sweetness and the darkness of Max Caswell. He is everything I love in a character dark, passionate, edgy and intense. I hated when the story ended and I searched frantically for the second one in the series!

Due to suggestive imagery, language and subject, I suggest for mature audiences. Love it!

a fun plus 102

Famed artist, Maxfield Caswell is missing.

Three of his major paintings have been savagely defaced and his house left in ruins. As his friends search for him, does his muse, Ava, hold the key?

Before the hope of love is lost, secrets will be told, spirits will be broken, and a price will be paid.
From the cave dwellings of New Mexico to the shores of Malibu, Max and Ava’s journey tests them to their limits. As they render passion and pain in broad strokes, will their all-consuming love rise from the debris?

My Review

Simply breathtaking! I could not wait for the second book in this installation, and I was not disappointed! Ms. Clampett has once again drawn me in and takes me on a roller coaster ride emotionally!! I cannot help but loving Max with all his torment and passions! The book picks up where the first one ends with Max having disappeared and a few of his paintings defaced. In Book Two, the search continues with all his loved ones, and Ava who feels guilt for his disappearance, in the forefront. On the fringes, is Johnathon the almost too good to be true publisher that is wooing Ava. We find out as readers there is a reason for his excessive charm. (Wow! Don’t want to spoil it!).

Max does come back and the two (Ava and Max) attempts to re-build their budding relationship from scratch by taking it slow. But Max is a “Take All” personality so struggles with insecurities and jealousies related to Ava. She attempts to care for his fragile feelings, while also dealing with her own self doubts, and fear. But in the mix of this is a passion which is so profound it threatens to engulf both of them.

There will be tears, and mouth dropping surprise within this book, there is a cliff hanger at the end, and so now the torture begins waiting for the third in the series!

I fully recommend this incredible series!

a fun plus 103

Has the bad boy of the art world, Maxfield Caswell, been tamed just as his girlfriend, Ava’s star begins to shine? Anything can happen in Los Angeles, a world where heroes become villains and the rogue saves the day.

An unexpected plane ticket leads our heroine to a meeting that will change her life.

What happens when what’s most precious to you slips out of your grasp? How fiercely will you fight for the one you love?
Join Max and Ava for the dramatic and passionate conclusion to the Work of Art Trilogy.

Mature content of sexual nature 18+

My Review

I absolutely love Max…love Ava…love Max&Ava! Truly two of my favorite couples! The story picks up where book 2 ends and questions we were left hanging with in the previous book is answered. But the reader cannot rest, because there so much more that kicks off for the pair! As Ava begins to grow into her own with her new job, Max is faltering a little, afraid to lose the woman he loves and…or course…acts in Max fashion! But you cannot help but love him and he does surprise Ava and the reader in supporting her. I love the fact that no matter what, the two, even down to the breaking point, will not give up on the other. Plus the incredible heat and passion between the two leaves me swooning! Lol.

I read the first two books and I am extremely pleased with how the Author has wrapped the story up. Now I will miss them and will have to re-read the entire trilogy! Just a fantastic read that I highly recommend!

Blurb

I had a simple life.

I worked two jobs, made ends meet, and hung out with my mom and twin brother. The other part of my life was about avoiding him, but when SWAT raided my boyfriend’s home, that was the last straw. The boyfriend got tossed and to help me keep busy, my brother talked me into joining their old band again, but I had to be honest. It wasn’t a hard sell. Playing drums was in my blood. I used to be addicted and that craving hadn’t been satisfied in three long years. The only problem was their lead singer.

It was him.

The drums might not have been the only thing I was addicted to. I think I was still addicted to him too.

Excerpt one: (Bri’s pov)

Luke hit a jarring note on his guitar below, drawing me from the past and back to reality. Seriously. I’d been ready to take on two thugs beside a dumpster for my stupid-ass cousin, but this had ice filling my veins.

I rolled my eyes upward. What was wrong with me?

The melody was addictive. I felt it reach deep inside me and take root. My breathing wavered as he kept playing. He moved down a chord, and the sound of it seeped into me, smoothing out the haunted memories. Then he began singing. His voice was soft and low, but I could hear it as if I were in the room. He was weaving a spell. It was like he threw a spear that had a rope attached to it at me from a hundred yards away, and it embedded deep into my stomach. Then he began pulling on it. I couldn’t fight because it would yank out my insides, but damn, I didn’t want to go with it. This whole thing with Luke was both painful and exhilarating at the same time. I had two urges going through me at once. One was to crap my pants, and the other was to start doing cartwheels.

I was just messed up, which is why I started down the stairs. I still had no clue what to say, but I had to do something.

He was hunched over the guitar in his lap with a beer at his feet. His eyes were closed, and his head hung over the guitar as he hit another chord, his thumb beating out the base. Since he was only wearing jeans, I saw some of the scars on his back. A storm of regret, shame, and longing all swirled inside me. I wanted to go to him, run my hands over those scars, and make them disappear. I couldn’t, though. We weren’t close anymore.

So many ghosts within you

So many haunts to pull you away

You look, I reach out and there’s nothing to do

They take you from me again, far away

I can’t, I can’t, I can’t take your hand

He kept singing, and my heart felt like it was splitting into two, but then he faltered. His eyes opened, and he looked up. He didn’t stop playing, but he stopped singing.

I felt like he was strumming me. I couldn’t look away from his gaze. His thumb stopped hitting the bass, and his fingers slowed on the guitar. “What are you doing here?”

Right. I was pretty sure I was seeing lust in his eyes. With that thought, a fever took over my blood, heating me up. “I,” my tongue wet my lips, “um, I’m here to talk about you and me.”

His gaze clouded over, and his eyelids lowered. He bent his head back over his guitar, but he didn’t start strumming again. “There is no ‘you and me.’ You’re in the band. That’s it.”

I swallowed the lump in my throat. “Luke,” I started.

“No.” He stood up abruptly, setting his guitar to the side. He advanced toward me, his eyes were smoldering.

When my back hit the wall, I realized I had nowhere else to go and could only watch as he closed in on me. A part of me wanted him to keep getting closer; the other part of me was still thinking about crapping my pants.

He leaned a hand against the wall beside my head, keeping a few inches between us. His eyes were hard as he said, “There is no you and me. That died long ago, remember?”

Excerpt two: (Luke’s pov)

 

I’d been tense from watching Bri on stage, and it hadn’t lessened as we ran through the woods. If there was another remark about her, I was ready to swing. I didn’t care how big they were.

Gunn had been watching me. He moved close and said under his breath, “If it happens, I’ll do it.”

“Why?”

“Because we need your pretty face for the fans.”

I looked up to see if he was serious. He was, but he relinquished, “Kidding. If you have a busted face, I think Priss would piss her pants from excitement.”

Braden had overheard him and laughed. “No, shit. That’d be leaked to the gossip shows in two seconds flat. I swear, she has all the numbers for the gossip channels on speed dial.”

The football players had gone ahead, but stopped and waited for us. The third one asked, “What’s going on?”

“Nothing.” I shoved past him. While seeing the road through the trees, I saw the headlights for Braden’s car at the same time. When we cleared the trees and headed up the ditch, all of us panned out and walked in one line for the car.

When we got there, Bri opened her door and leaned against the car. Her hair was whipping behind her face and one hand was resting on her hip. She tugged her shirt and then adjusted it back, but it didn’t stick. It fell down, showing her black bra. Bri was clueless, scowling at us. She was the picture of fierce and alluring at the same time.

We were greeted with, “What were you guys doing there?”

She took in the whole line of guys before letting her eyes find mine, making me feel seared. It was the same effect every time. My insides felt yanked out, but I still wanted to touch her.

I looked away instead.

“We came to see you.” Braden motioned to the guys.

“Are you insane? How was tonight supposed to go down any other way? You guys are celebrities. You can’t be coming to house parties anymore.” There was a clipped bark to her voice, but it faded on the last word, and I glanced over. She sneaked a look at me.

“Yeah, we didn’t think ahead.” Braden threw a hand to the football guys. “Got some extra room?”

She shook her head. “There is no way this little car can fit all of you hulks.”

The guys laughed and one mentioned, “We can wait here. A bunch of our buddies are coming. They can pick us up.”

I should’ve thanked them for saving us from the chaos, and I heard Gunn and Braden doing exactly that, but I looked back at her. Her hand was still on her hip, but her shoulders were slumped forward. She was kicking at some gravel on the road.

The football guys headed farther down the road as Gunn and Braden got into the car. We were alone now, but there was still an audience.

She wouldn’t look at me anymore. I wanted to turn those dark eyes to me. I wanted to say something, but I had no idea what. I ended with, “You’re still really good.”

Her head lifted, and I saw it. There was so much there. Fear, caution, excitement, warmth, and another expression I couldn’t place. No, I did. She was still haunted.

“Thank.”

She was mine.

No. She wasn’t.

She had gone to him that night.

Ah, fucking hell.

“We should probably talk.”

Her eyes opened at my tone, which was rough, and panic flared across her face for a moment. “Oh. Okay.”

Author Information

 a fun plus 101

I didn’t begin writing until after undergraduate college. There’d been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can’t blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I’m hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.

Description

Fast-Pitch Love is a coming-of-age story about a high school boy who volunteers to help his mother coach a girls softball team because he believes the “girl of his dreams” will also be an assistant coach for the team. He gets more than a few surprises and eventually discovers that romance depends on more than physical attraction.

Excerpt One

Stick pulled out of the parking lot and headed toward the center of town where most of the restaurants and fast food places were. “I saw you scoping out Stephanie during the history final,” he said while they waited on a traffic light. “Man, you’re way out of bounds with her.” “I know,” Jace answered. “But who says I can’t dream?” “I wouldn’t even risk doing that, Slo-Mo. If that gorilla boyfriend of hers ever gets wind of what’s on your mind, your dream could become a nightmare real quick.” “Who’s going to tell him — you?” “Are you kidding? He’s no friend of mine, although he might make a good pet if you could find a big enough cage.” The light turned green, and Stick shot through the intersection. Jace shook his head and frowned. “I just want a chance with her. Just one chance. Maybe something could happen between us. If she’s not interested, okay. That wouldn’t kill me. What’s killing me is that I don’t know and never will as long as –” “Carson’s in the way?” “Exactly.” Stick took a hand off the steering wheel and rubbed his chin as if he were a wise old man with a long beard. “King Kong is a problem,” he admitted. “No doubt about that.” Then a mischievous grin took shape. “But maybe not as much as you think.” “What do you mean?” Jace’s voice betrayed both hope and anxiety. At that moment, Stick pulled into Burger World and stopped in front of the menu board. A large globe with a painted-on face and a chef’s hat asked for their order. Stick glanced at Jace. “Want anything?” “No thanks. I’m not that hungry. Now what did you mean –” “Well, I am. Give me a Global Burger with everything, medium fries, and large vanilla shake.” “That will be four twenty-five,” the talking globe said in its buzz saw-like voice. “Please pull up to the window.” While they waited for Stick’s food, Jace again asked, “What did you mean when you said Carson may not be that much of a problem?” Stick leaned back and put his hands behind his head. “I found out Carson might not be spending much time around Ridgeview this summer,” he said. “Why not?” “He’s got himself a job at a lumber yard up in Michigan. Plus, he’s going to be visiting some colleges that want him to play football for them.” “How long will he be gone?” “I don’t know. But Michigan is pretty far from central Ohio, so if he’s going way up there, he’ll probably stay awhile. A few weeks anyway, wouldn’t you think?” “Yeah, makes sense.” “Long enough for a clever rival to make his move.”

Excerpt Two

The next practice was tougher. Martha put the girls through running drills, having them sprint around the bases three times at the beginning and twice at the end. In between, she pushed them to sharpen their defensive skills. She taught them how to run-down an opposing player caught between two bases; she urged them to call for balls hit high, so they didn’t collide with a teammate; she organized a “round-the-clock” fielding exercise whereby one girl at a time ran the bases in reverse, stopping at each infield position to handle a batted ball. Jace and Sylvia hit pop-ups, liners, bouncers, and grounders over and over again to the Valkyries while Martha watched and evaluated each player. Most of the girls showed improvement. The one exception was Lauren, who lacked the speed and agility to catch anything not hit straight to her. At one point she slammed her glove on the ground. “It’s hopeless!” she yelled, almost in tears. “I’m a worthless klutz! I’m quitting the team.” She began to stomp toward the bench. “Come on, Lauren!” Martha shouted. “Don’t quit! We need you!” “Why — for a mascot?” Lauren shot back. “No, we need you to play,” Martha continued. “You could be a great hitter. We all saw that last week. You just need more practice in the field.” “Jace, why don’t you grab your glove and go out there with Lauren?” Sylvia suggested. Jace, who had just finished a round of hitting balls, gave her a puzzled look. “What good will that do?” “Just stand next to her and encourage her.” He looked toward his mother, pacing along the first-base foul line. She nodded. Jace ran behind the backstop where his mitt rested on the ground. After putting it on, he had the strange feeling that something soft and gooey was on his fingers. What could it be and how did it get there? No time to think about it. He trotted out next to Lauren as Sylvia prepared to hit the next ball. It went toward Angela in right field, but Jace didn’t see her catch it, because his eyes were riveted on his glove. Something was happening inside of it, something bad. The gooey feeling was still there, but now there was also a feeling of heat that grew more intense by the second. The next ball off Sylvia’s bat went toward center field, but Jace didn’t see that one caught either. He was too busy tearing at his glove, flinging it away, and clawing at his hand, which felt as if it were on fire. He stumbled to his knees. “Arrrrrgh,” he bellowed, as he rubbed his hand back and forth on the grass, trying to remove the slimy substance. “What’s the matter, Jace?” Martha cried out. “Why are you –?” “Success!” shouted Heather. “Sweet revenge!” added Dana. “What do you mean?” said Sylvia, as the two girls jumped up and down with glee. “What did you do to him?” “Nothing much,” said Heather with a grin. “Just put some capsaicin cream in his glove when he wasn’t looking.” “Why?” asked Martha, who seemed more curious than upset. “For nearly killing us with that ball he hit last week. That’s what for,” answered Dana. “Yeah, we figured we’d teach him a lesson,” said Heather. “But that was an accident, girls,” said Martha. “What you did was deliberate.” “He won’t die,” said Heather, pointing at Jace, who continued to rub his hand on the grass. A small circle of girls assembled around him, faces glowing with smirks and hands restraining laughter. Even Lauren seemed to enjoy the spectacle.

MY REVIEW

I have read each title from Author Nikki Rae to date, and I became a fan of her writing when reading the Sun Shine series. Therefore, I was very happy to encounter some familiar faces in Animal.Although there were references or bits of Sunshine in the mix of the story, Animal held it’s own as a fantastic read! I thoroughly enjoyed the book in which the writer once again explores the darker sides of a human’s soul and where the monsters have handsome faces.

The story of Ava who suffers from anxiety and with her only family begins life anew in a new city and new job, while running from familiar fears. But once caught, it is a struggle for the young woman to survive when coming face to face with true evil.

Animal is a well written story with intricate detail and pacing. The suspense is used expertly to draw the reader in and keep his/her attention until the end. Ava’s a character I grew to care about, who reflects a great strength even in the midst of the terrors that threaten to consume her.

I enjoyed seeing the story from various viewpoints and the ending was one I did not see coming!

Definitely a must read for those who enjoy the darker side of Paranormal. I look forward to more from this author!

IndieWritersReview’s Book Review Spotlight! FRACTURED GLASS (Paranormal/Fantasy NOVEL Anthology)


Happy Wednesday Guys! Thought I’d just share my thoughts over the next few weeks of great reads that have shown up on my Kindle!

Today I’m reviewing  a really cool concept book called Fractured Glass a Paranormal/Fantasy NOVEL Anthology written by FIVE talented Authors:Tia S. Bach  Jo Michaels   Casey L. Bond   Kelly Risser  N. L. Green!

FRACTURED GLASS

a fun plus 101

Amazon

What if other worlds existed alongside your own? What if you could travel through them and truly escape reality?

Sloan and Harley Glass were born moments apart; but, despite their differences, the sixteen-year-old twins couldn’t be closer. They’ve held their tongues each and every time their mother has uprooted them—often moving across the country with little notice. They’ve learned to accept change. But what is Mom running from?

They discover they’re travelers—half-descendants of those who can traverse an entire universe of parallel worlds known as fractals. When the past catches up, Harley is kidnapped and taken to one of those distant worlds. Now, Sloan must garner her courage and find a way to rescue her sister. Traversing the worlds isn’t the hard part; it’s surviving the elements and the creatures lying in wait to destroy everything in their path.

Will the Glass sisters be able to save the fractal worlds from the kidnapper, or will everything fracture and crumble around them?

My Review

a fun plus 106

‬ Okay this was such a cool concept, it is NOT an anthology with DIFFERENT STORIES! It is ONE story told by FIVE different authors!

Wow! Authors (Tia Silverthorne Bach, Jo Michaels, Casey L. Bond, Kelly Risser, and N.L. Greene) each telling a portion of a continuing science fiction/fantasy story!!

I fell in love with the concept right from the start. My concern was could they pull it off? I mean writing different stories, with a common theme such as in a collection is one thing, but five different types of writing styles for one seamless story???? They did it!!
Awesome sci/fantasy following two twin sisters that are half descendants from a parallel world called Fractuals. When Harley is kidnapped, we follow sister Sloan on an adventure to save her sister!

On this journey we encounter all sorts of creatures (Zombies, Vampires) and magic, magic magic!
The story is well written with each author’s part picking up where the previous author left off. It’s a seamless tale that keeps the reader guessing. Twists/Turns and alot of adventure!

I recommend to those who enjoy a good science fiction/fantasy with paranormal hints tale:)
